9:02 pm
away from kick off of the champions league final year again, crops. liverpool will take on round madrid in paris. shortly i came to stop the spanish giants from climbing a record extending 14th title ah 78 minutes. that's how long police in texas waited in the hallway of valdez rob elementary school before entering the classroom, where of 18 year old killer was hold up. for by the time officers broke in 19 children and 2 chief teachers had already been killed while students and teachers repeatedly play they do with 9. 11 all for is, is the help all the place chief told offices to wait. president joe biden is due to visit you val day on sunday. earlier, he spoke about the shooting at a graduation ceremony in delaware. as i speech,
9:03 pm
those parents are literally preparing to bury their children in the united states, america to bury their children to which violence too much fear too much grief. let's be clear. evil came to that elementary school classroom at texas. that grocery store in new york. far to many places where innocence have died. the face of such destructive forces, we have to stand stronger. we must stand strong. we cannot outlaw tragedy. i know we can't make america safer. chaper tansy is live, frost in washington, d. c. how that start with the latest police confession. basically she had that they
9:04 pm
waited too long to intervene. how is that going down with people? well i think obviously that there's shaka, the f, b i joined the investigation to what exactly happened. and clearly now they're looking at not just the motivations of the government, but also the response of authorities even before that investigation. all these investigations have completed, the director of state police has already said it was the wrong decision period. a lot of focus now on the valdez school districts police chief whose decision it was not to suttonberg, but the police. it had been out of them for hanging around for over an hour, as you suggested, because he decided that the gunman was now barricaded no longer an active shooter. despite the fact of those anguish 911, those not anguished. emergency calls from children insides inside the school. lot of attention on him. in fact, he's actually under police protection that we're on the storm and has actually been
9:05 pm
heard for much since since the, the 1st day or the 1st few hours after the shooting. and she had, despite all of this, america's biggest gun lobby is gone ahead with a major convention just 4 days after the mass shooting prominent republicans, led by donald trump rejected new gun restrictions. at that an hour a conference. every time a disturbed or demented person commits such a hideous crime is ow is a grotesque effort by seminar society to use the suffering of others to advance their own extreme political agenda. even more repulsive is their rush to shift blame away from the villains who commit acts of mass violence. and to place that blame on to the shoulders of millions of peaceful law abiding citizens. shabby, listened to comments like that. and you have to wonder how much change in thinking is going on right now and, and are
9:06 pm
a circles. how much impact has the public backlash had against the gun lobby? i think we really need to be careful when we talk about public backlash because of history is any guide. what happens is those who favor gun control get more vocal at least for a little bit, but those who are against more gun regulations, in fact, decide that look, this is more proof that the world is so dangerous that we should have more guns on the streets to protect ourselves, perhaps even because of the security, the lack of ability of the security forces are in the uniforms outside the school. and in fact, we always see this after mass shootings. you, sir, you'll see the graph of garden sales or it will usually peek after about shooting because there's that fear there. oh, maybe something will be done now and it goes, it never is. it never is done. so we need to be careful about who we're talking about when we talk about a, a public backlash for those who believe that they have the right tone. assault weapons, this just shows why they should have a supplement. even though in the specific case,
9:07 pm
it is perhaps the most clearest example off the an r a's usual argument. the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun is a good man with the gun. i think the it is always a man as well. and you know, clearly is it is simply did not happen in this case. meanwhile, we'll have the democrats do their performance of hand wringing, but biden's made it pretty clear that he's not gonna use his bully pulpit to try and really force the issue, perhaps change congressional rules. so that simple majority rule could, could pass, god could draw, he didn't even do that with his own, his own agendas. he's not going to do that now. i think perhaps now the democrats just hoping maybe this might and be more like have some craves or more enthusiasm on their own base of the pose because they're in base right now is pretty disenchanted with bite. and generally i thanks so much that was shabby taxi putting it all into perspective for us. thanks you have now at least 31 people have died after a stampede in southern nigeria. it happened at a church charity events in port harcourt. local media report say a large crowd turned up ahead of the event in
9:08 pm
a crash occurred when the venue opened to denison bar has more from a buddha. the police have confirmed that actually fatty one people were killed and 9 injured. but witnesses say in number could be higher than the officials. he go even by the police. the crowd had gathered any saturday morning waiting for a church that's harder problem used to distribute food items, clothing, materials to the less privileged. and they had got out of an open air spotting event area. so why would somebody officials to you should be command event, that is an hour before some persons tried to entry into a smaller entry point to be given. i mean, that's why we're trying to rush into the place. there was this deed and some of the people who have to know where crash. so the police is now investigating,
9:09 pm
trying to find with what cost to do. and also to go in has a code for investigations to find out where whether a security measures will actually differently put in place to ensure that such incident doesn't happen again. well as the world braces for a food crisis brought on by the war in ukraine. russia's friends and says he's willing to discuss ways to ship grain stuck in ukraine's ports in a phone call with the leaders of france and germany. vladimir putin said russia is ready to increase fertilizer exports, but only of sanctions are lifted. russia and ukraine account for nearly a 3rd of global wheat supplies. ukraine is also a major exporter of cooking oil. a care has been unable to export those supplies due to russia's invasion, which sent global food prices soaring on those that jabbar is in moscow,
9:10 pm
has more on putin's coal with my new micron and all our sholtes, the russian president told his a counterparts the as status of the military operation, he talked about how and there are a number of issues with the ships that are carrying ukrainian wheat that have been stuck on in the black sea. as a result of what the russians are saying are minds that are placed along the routes for them to leave in the black sea by the ukrainian military. now vladimir putin said that russia is willing to allow the passage of those ships are roughly around $300.00 of them and from the main port in odessa, in ukraine. and that is something that is up for discussion. but as that is something, of course that has to be done through the russian military. they president, the russian president also talked about how the negotiations have stalled between
9:11 pm
the 2 sides as a result of the key of government. not being serious and responding to at the offers that have been made by the russian negotiators. the last one being and made on april 15th of vladimir putin also stressed that the weapons that are being poured into ukraine, especially by the united states, are really exasperating. the situation on the ground than they are further destabilizing. the ongoing conflict between the 2 sides. the 3 leaders agreed to keep the line of communications open and the french and the german at leaders also were at seemingly satisfied by the answers given by the russian president about the status of the prisoners, the ukrainian military personnel that are being held as prisoners of war by the russian military on the ground in ukraine. president val other means that and ski says the situation on the eastern front line is extremely difficult. fresh and forces of advanced in the push to fully control the dumbass region. the air isn't
9:12 pm
read held by russia and it's separatist allies. the governor of the hands says ukrainian forces may have to withdraw from their last pocket of defense to avoid being surrounded in the province. the city of sylvester, don't you ask? i've seen some of the heaviest fighting russian forces closing to fully encircling rushes. defense ministry says it's forces now control lehman. ukraine says fighting is ongoing near the city the same before avi is in kiev and has more on the russian offensive in dumbass. the russians of course, want to take over as much of dynamic as possible to achieve the goal that the russian president vladimir putin has said he wants to achieve, which is to control the administrative boundaries of tonight's, gonna have to take over the entire don bus region now, when it comes to lima, and in the last few hours we've heard from the ukranian deputy defense minister who has refuted claims that lima has fallen to the russian advance. they say that yes,
9:13 pm
on the latest report from the local government on the ground is that most of mine is currently under russian occupation. but the deputy defense minister confirming that it still has not fallen. now the battle for lima is key because it is at a crossroads. it could mean cutting off ukrainian access if it russia is indeed in control of it all between the east and west. and that could allow russia to cut off of forces that are fighting elsewhere in the hoskins severed than, as $8000.00 plus forces. there could potentially be encircled lima and being the 1st lily pad for them to move onwards towards surrounding forces. there now as far as that fight is concerned, we have heard of ukrainian forces planning on making some kind of tactical retreat to live and fight another day. it is a large number of forces that are potentially in circle there. but again, another, another contradiction by the deputy defense minister here saying that they've actually managed to push russian forces back to original positions,
9:14 pm
any gains that they made, and several, and that's since this new phase of the conflict since forces re mobilized in the east. they say they've pushed them back to those original positions. plenty more had all the news out, including food prices, sore, nav, canada, stand. how that's being made worse by the war in ukraine. and in sport tennis action from the french open women's world number one wins yet again. with the you and human rights commissioner is calling on beijing not to use anti terrorism concerns to justify human rights abuses. michelle bachelor has been visiting the shinji ang region where chinese authorities are accused of abuses against weak muslims. katrina, you reports from bay jing?
9:15 pm
well you michelle bachelor's visit to china. was the 1st by you and human rights commissioners since 2005. and many saw it as a chance to assess widespread allegations that aging is committing human rights abuses against muslim weakness and shin challenge or hurt. but during a press conference, marking bill end of his 6 day trip out, she said that wasn't her goal. so i stay on the outfit when this visit was and what it was this, this was not an investigation. official visit by high commissioner are by the major high profile as simply not conducive to that kind of detail methodology with a bully. and an because discrete, we're often investigative nature. instead natalie says the visit was an opportunity to engage with senior china was leaders. she spoke with president, she's in pain by video and met jung officials in the cities of cash. got and watching nationally says she urged them to review counter terrorism policies to
9:16 pm

9:17 pm
province. treatment amounting to genocide. analysts say the visit has placed a valuable spotlight on the region, but the credibility of the commissioner and her office has been called into question. there is a high cost to their credibility. if a strong and detailed report doesn't emerge from all of this, the ging has denied claims mistreatment against the move from weak minority calling them the lie of the century. katrina, you al jazeera aging out a sudden he diet is the program manager of the campaign for we goes organization. he says bachelor's visit, lack transparency. many who have been suffering under the chinese regime had been waiting for decades for such a visit for such an investigation. it wasn't investigation, but for such a visit that happened. unfortunately, she was using china's terminology like anti terrorism. indeed radicalization to
9:18 pm
legitimize a genocide being perpetrated against the weak people. it's very clear from the questioning that has that, that they were provided to michelle bachelor in advance and she was reading from a script, especially from the questions by the p r. c. state media questions. so during the visit and which is which was security, which was it wasn't an unfettered visit which will, which we wanted to have. and pretty much china was that they dictated the whole visit or the way it was the equivalent. today's message was the equivalent of nazis essentially conducting their own urine birth trials. with this visit, it's become more critical than ever that this was not fully transparent, but that wasn't the case. in the high commission, i must release the report on the week of genocide which they have been sitting on for the past 6 months. my mother in law, my father in law and my 2 brothers in law, they are currently in the camps. we haven't heard them for, for, for 5 years. we understand that they have been sentenced anywhere between 7 to 17
9:19 pm
years and for, for, for crimes other than you know, them being weak is almost them. we know that we are persecuted for their religion for their identity, and many 1000000 millions of biggest are in my situation. in fact, are all week is living in the dice for had at least one family member who are currently suffering in chinese concentration camps. and that's exactly what they are, but unfortunately the u. n. has not done its job in securing an investigation. now for the 50th stay in the row, protest isn't for anchor calling for preston got to buy our auto parts for to resign. people are also demonstrating against the new prime minister running with for the singer. he was sworn in by the president earlier this month. protesters blame the government for an economic crisis, left the country without enough fuel food or medicine. now fernandez was at

a protest held earlier on saturday in colombo and 50 days after the campaign go home. gotten. 8 started, this is what we're seeing. hundreds of people gathering in colombo to mark that milestone. and bear don't show any signs of giving up their struggle. they said that despite the fact that the president has brought in some changes, he swept the boards of cabinet. there's a new government in place and very effectively what the roger foxes have done. what observer said they're great at doing is to cost the attention of them. so right now the attention is on prime minister serrano vicar missing her, and the argent dismal state. the country's economy is in, but for these protest is here today. as you can see, one banner that says nor deal. what basically that alludes to is the fact that the
9:21 pm
roger potters are still pulling the strings from behind the scenes. they say it's just a new set of faces, but the same old and that these protesters are not willing to put up with that one . the young protest i spoke to said they have basically managed to bring out the general public of shalanda for the 1st time that people are ready to speak up about the injustice about the mismanagement and all of that rather than sit in their comfort zones. and this is a fundamental change in sri lanka, day to day life. so what people say 50 days on is that they will continue their struggle. it's not going to stop here. an israeli rides groove is demonstrating against the construction of a settlement outposts in the occupied west bank. the police trying to disperse the protesters and confiscated to both those is brought to demolish outbursts these

9:32 pm
even worse. but prices rising and resources becoming increasingly scores or cranky . this is john with the warren ukraine. european countries turned to markets in kazakhstan for us, that means the price of wheat, flour and oil have sword. united nations reports, as many people have built up enormous stead to buy food over the past few months and access to seats. fertilizer and water for irrigation is limited to much to do. we've seen an increase of up to $9.00 for every sack of flour. so we're very much affected by the war between russia and ukraine. poverty has been rife enough can a stand for years with nearly 20000000 people facing acute hunger, but political instability, low harvest violence, and shipping delays, or adding pressure on the countries we supply and fuel prices. and that's being made worse as inflation effects, goods and markets across the world,
9:33 pm
looking for how does yet the prices are skyrocketing, people have limited income sources and they have to reduce their purchases. international aid is restricted as western governments remain weary of the taliban and a decree ordering women to wear clothing the covers them from head to toe and public as well as recent school closures have intensified criticism abroad focused on the world is trying to show that it's dedicated to philanthropy and humanitarian causes, by distributing a sack of flour and 5 kilograms of eatable oil, but this has no positive impact on the people. with afghanistan already facing political and economic struggles. soaring food prices are now another challenge for its people. cause a little bit of a young jazeera voters in columbia gearing up for sundays presidential election, 3 of the 4 main candidates face stuff in the final debate. polls place gustavo pad, throw as the clear front runner head of sunday's elections, the thunder and b,
9:34 pm
etc. reports from barbara, one south with only hours left before pulls open in columbia, the leading presidential candidate smith for a televised debate. i knew it was the last chance to sway undecided voters in one of the most highly contested elections in years. poles placed gustavo paper as the clear front runner, he could become columbia, the 1st left his president, just for his meeting challenger center. right. physical gutierrez attacked what he described as his radical proposals among them. public patience reform that he says could put the country's economic stability at risk. how can you go mighty and as you know, he's out of luck. he's proposing taking in nationalizing people savings in pension funds, as if this was public money when it is private savings. and they want to tell the 800000000 pension savers that those funds will be safe with me. what he's proposing
9:35 pm
is bread for today and hunger for tomorrow. petro responded saying gutierrez pretends being independent when in reality supported by the corrupt and traditional politicians. colombians are tired of several large local media lower. he who stole schools, food in the hearer, even killing people. so on the part of the radical change party, allied with the chocolate, i suppose you haven't, you received all the political machinery and my fears if this country the allied with the current president. the candidates clashed on issues close to this affected colombian, voters from an equality to rising hunger, poverty, and unemployment. following the pandemic to the implementation of the p steel rising violence, corruption in drug trafficking that i see that on that that it must get 20 centuries candidate said you for how to do who has been trailing in the poles, cities, the candidate best place to fight corruption on all sides or killers, bullied the ghettos, outland. back. conspicuous by his absence was the campaigns wildcard,
9:36 pm
77 year old. right? leaning independent populists were, those were men. this was made a surprising jump in popularity. in the last few weeks for the money, he held what he called at the bait with columbia and answering questions from supporters on his facebook page. better has been a head in the falls for months and its popularity shows how much the left has grown lately. both here in columbia and across latin america, but he will like me faith. i run off against either gutierrez or at done this and his success remains uncertain and sound that i'm p as he joins us now live from bob with hell. so 1st of all that tv debate do we have an idea of who won any want to swap swung over. busy those undecided voters that you talks about new report? well found me, the general feeling here is that this last the bay was more of the same in many ways that the candidates have repeated their positions to the voters. what their
9:37 pm
expectations are, but nobody really has been able to have a very powerful attack against any of the other candidates. so the feeling is that the things probably remain pretty much the same. and there's a lot of uncertainty about this. roughly 10 to 15 percent of prospective voters that have said there's still on the side that the last pulls were actually published a week ago. things that could have changed since then. the short answer is that we don't know the expectation stale. is that the 5th or will most likely come in 1st tomorrow and that you'll probably not have enough to avoid run off that run off will then be on june 19th. and the question is, who will come in 2nd then is main challenger, is that good? but there is the possibility of a surprise with this 3rd way candidate. the populace 77 year old that don't
9:38 pm
flip 9. this, that has been rising in the folds lately. alright. tomorrow is the big day. take us through the election preparations, then preparations are on their way both here in the capital, but then across much of the country there is fear for possible security issues, especially in rural areas. areas that are still under conflict in many ways where armed groups operate, however, the biggest remaining rebel group in the country. the land said that they will suspend all of their operations to allow people to vote. but there are worries, in particular, in the northwest of the country just just a couple of weeks ago, have seen the operations by one of the biggest mafia in the countries,
9:39 pm
the golf clam. that in response to the fact that their leader was the extra dated to the us, essentially a block to 7 different regions of columbia for 4 days, they're not allowing people to open stores and so forth. so there is a risk that they could essentially try to do something again tomorrow. there are also worries about possible fraud and both buying and particular along the caribbean coast. this is something that pay through as they insisted on and both there and there have been criticism on the left and on the right, the against electoral authority here saying that not all the guarantees are in place for that not to happen tomorrow. and how much discussion has there been on what it will mean for the regional balance of power? if one of the u. s. is closest allies goes left?
9:40 pm
but the short answer there is that it's on clear, but talking to people at the u. s embassy here off the record, and also at the state department in washington. it's pretty clear that the us u. s. o tori. these are worried about how. a the special relationship that the u. s. has that with columbia, columbia is that close this ally at to, to the u. s. as has been also, and i was as a major non nato ally recently. and so they're worried, the of what a possible petro presidency could mean, especially when it comes to 2 areas, one is stray, then that's because patron repeatedly said that he'd like to start a conversation with the u. s. and renegotiate the free trade agreements that with the u. s, that has been actually very favorable to the us. it has reached now 10 years
9:41 pm
