6:00 pm
living with the hardy, of losing my son on a daily basis. i believe it is our god given right to defend ourselves from any act of violence. making it more difficult or even more expensive for me, and people that look like me and other law abiding citizens will not make us safer . it will em, bolden, but criminal's gun owners are not the enemies. and these gun control policies are not the solution. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you all for your powerful and meaningful and gut wrenching testimony. ah, we will now pause, sir, you are excused, and we will pause while we seat the next panel for their testimony.
6:01 pm
this is al jazeera, it is now 1500 hours g and t alo, adrian finnegan, down here in doha for the last hour. so we have been listening to well, as you heard the powerful and gut wrenching testimony in the u. s. congress where survivors and parents of victims of recent my shootings have begun a day of from well, emotional testimony. we heard the final speaker was lucretia hughes from the teach dc project women for guns, right. she says that a gun owners are not the enemy. education is key to safety and not ineffective gun laws. alzheimer's mike hannah is up to the u. s. congress and was listening to that testimony. mike, what do you make of what we heard? no, that was got drenching at test me that we heard from family members of those who've been killed in this fate of school shootings in the united states. parents talking about dropping off their children at school in the normal course of events. baron's
6:02 pm
talking about suddenly receiving a phone call that the child was dead. we heard from the pediatrician who described the scene as at the hospital and you've all the when young children were being brought in. some of them did some of them severely injured. a pediatrician who had been working within the community for a long period of time. what we've heard as well, is repeated calls there for improved gotten controls, a tangible suggestions from some of the families, among them raising the age at which you can buy a weapon from $18.00 to $21.00. a ban on assault rifles, high capacity magazines. but we've also seen, even in a situation like this, the partisan differences that occur. there was a kind of exchange at the beginning of the session between the democrat chair and the senior republican representative on the committee in which he insisted that the issue was not just about guns. fact there's
6:03 pm
a mental health issue that schools need to be secured. the chairman saying very clearly that she believe that gun legislation was essential, stringent gun legislation was essential. so even on an occasion like this, you get these partisan differences. which to date had stopped any meaningful gun legislation from passing through the senate. in the course of to day, the house is going to be passing gun control legislation, which does has some teeth increasing the age of which you can buy a weapon. banning a assault rifles, however, this would never get through the senate. the senate itself is discussing behind closed doors, a watered down version of this. but meanwhile, what we are hearing is testimony from the victims. arguing very strongly that to blame for this. all the politicians, the politicians who repeatedly over many, many years have declined to pause. meaningful gun legislation continued to allow 18
6:04 pm
year olds to buy assault weapons with no proper writ flag checks with no checks into their background. so we heard here the, the pain and as well as the anger of those who directly been impacted by gun violence. and just to mention as well, adrian, that we are speaking about the my shooting in buffalo, new ball the in those particular sessions. but just this past weekend alone in the united states, 17 people were killed in gun related violence. in all there were a dozen mass shootings in which 4 or. busy people were killed or injured. so even as we sit here is just days away from yet another mass shooting 17 people killed in one weekend just this past weekend. this in the wake of those incidents that are being discussed in this committee meeting. and mike, the committee is in recess as,
6:05 pm
as we speak, what's due to happen when the commission on oversize and, and reform a comes back from recess. well, what is happening at the moment is that they are switching the panel. they are a series of panels that will be happening. we heard there from the 1st panel now there will be another 5 people seated, which includes as well, some experts in terms of gun control suggestions as so we will hear more about this ongoing debate. as the committee continues to hear the testimony of those who survive the testimony of those who blas loved ones and will also be hearing from those. busy who are experts, as you put it in again, control methods. that discussion is going to be happening. the committee will at one stage begin to ask a questions, but they will still be hearing out this next panel, which will be discussing once again the impact on the survivors on the relatives,
6:06 pm
as well as what tangibly should be done about it. or i'd like for the moment, many thanks don't 0, mike. hannah reported that live from washington dc. ah, russia and ukraine, 2 of the world's largest green exporters, are at war. a global food crisis is looming, but a un plan to restart. ukraine's great exports has already met its 1st hurdle rushes foreign minister has guaranteed the safety of shipments from ukraine. if keith removes naval mines from the black sea, ukrainian officials though have dismissed the comments as empty words. so gay lover of his in ankara for talks with turkey's foreign minister took his, making a diplomatic push to get the deal in place between moscow and cave, wrote so forth was they only put it be skewed for those little skew, any vessel wishing to use these cartilage either for loading or unloading grain is
6:07 pm
free. do so. we also have some de mining activities going on. but a few days ago, mister lensky asked for weapons that can be used against russian ship. so that's a clear signal of what their intentions are. but if you crane is ready to start the mining activities, then we are to we're discussing the details with turkish defense units. the book on the gimme that and then at that we are talking about a plan that includes a mechanism and cooperation between our technicians, the russian federation, ukraine and took in this regard, including the issue of examination of ships as turkey. you find this man reasonable and implementable? well, at the same news conference, the russian foreign minister was challenged by a ukrainian journalist who accused russia of stealing from his country. watching okay, you may have just mentioned, what has russia already managed to sell from everything that has been stored in ukraine side from green. so those are the you should have come again. so what has russia oddity managed to sell from everything that has been stored in
6:08 pm
your, your green side from green gala but it doesn't give us you're talking about the yellow i'm a teacher. ukrainians are always so preoccupied with what you can steal and from where and you think that everyone thinks that way i will answer you were implementing the goals that it been now publicly to read ethan ukraine, the suppression of neo nazi regime. and that's what we're doing, and grain, we've explained day, the grain can be transported freely to its destination. russia isn't putting any obstacles in the way. this requires mrs. lensky to give the command come on. if you still come out of anything there till our foreign and ukrainian ships to go into the black sea. we'll talk, he's a member of nato, and she has a c border with, with russia and ukraine. in the black sea, the russian navy controls nearly all traffic. so the northern part of the backseat . and since the invasion at february, russian forces a blockaded several ukrainian ports including ukraine's largest odessa,
6:09 pm
which has been bombarded by rushing vessels for weeks blocking millions of tons of grain. the fighting has put other ports like china mosque and usually out of operation on the same as off 2 major ports, already resume green shipments. but the criminal says that keith still needs to remove naval miners from buddy and mario paul. see if as of his shallower than the black sea at its forts only accessible to smaller vessels. let's talk to olga for a fence about her was in key if she's a special invoice for the ukrainian ministry of foreign affairs and is responsible for promoting ukraine's food at agricultural exports. good to have with us. can i ask, why was ukraine not present at these talk today? i good afternoon. yes, that's a good question and mary would like to know that says that one of the our poor and so worry because we are not invited in fact. and mr. laskey, our resident also mentioned to in the reaction of the show or action to the dogs

6:11 pm
we don't know all the details, but what do we hear from all these negotiations? it's not enough for us to let em. you seem to be even a breast statement of mr. law girl, i only can come from, but unfortunately you grace doesn't draft the words of mr. lover off mr. pudding and we've seen already many announcements, many such kind of the, i don't know enough the show statements and proposals that just really empty. read more, more security guarantees. ok, so you don't trust mr. lab wrong, but do you trust the un we trust you in about here is a problem and you will, you had also the question, what the brain is afraid of october. the mining russia really can use the current doors for the attacking the ukrainian for so for the germ remarks,
6:12 pm
it can use it for free and cost, and i'm not quite sure that for instance, if you should even mandatory all turkish metal, military would be ready to go into direct military interaction with the russian to i think you are they agree on for? so you're saying that ukraine wasn't invited to these talks or others to say that ukraine was invited but, but didn't show out. but it's clear that nothing is going to happen. until ukraine is included in these negotiations. absolutely, absolutely. that's one of the rules, in fact, reach me or seen in the last time different on this is and i'll talk about ukraine results your grades. we're talking here about the korean grain and ukrainian force . and again, i can completely understand the pragmatic interest of turkey, the top 3 of import, there's looks great and green and green on green for almost 1 dollar last year
6:13 pm
to open the force and to have you ready and green. also, it's market on turkish market, but again we need more detail land land, and we need a more security guarantees. and even maybe, as mrs. alaska said we need then some missiles which we'll be ready to attack corruption metal or if we will use this misuse this there military and corridor. you see. okay, good talk too many thanks to deed for being with us. olga crawford saver in kid. thank you very much. hundreds of civilians in the city of savannah. the gnats can eastern ukraine are reported to be sheltering in bunkers below a chemical plant workers at the as a plant, a trying to secure the facility which source highly exclusive chemicals. russia is thought to have capture most of the city according to a us think tank, the institute for the study of what has been monitoring the battle for control of

the key eastern region of to hans, hear the news out from al jazeera still to come on the program, one dead 30 injured, will be on the scene in berlin, where a car was driven into a crowd and making way for the tourist train. thailand's top earning industry is reopening for business. also, in sport, will have action flow match between 2 countries that are hoping to make a big impact. at the cutoff world come ah, saddam's military rulers, holding direct talks with political parties and civil society groups for the 1st time since seizing power in october. the un secretary general has called for good faith, a good faith effort to come to a consensus, protest us have been taught taking to the st. regularly since the coud announcing
6:15 pm
military rule. let's go live now to, well cartoon. i'll just, there was hip morgan is outside the place where these talks are underway, him up. what if anything, can we expect to come out of these talks? wallace special representatives of the un secretary general here and sudan made it clear that was he wants to see coming out of this, a sudanese own sudanese lead dialogue as he described. it is some kind of agreement on a constitutional arrangement. now the constitutional has changed since the military took over power last october, and there is no current prime minister, a prime minister, ham duke who was deposed by the military during the takeover was reinstated back in november, but he resigned in january. so sudan right now is currently without a fully functioning government. and he says, one thing he hopes to see happening is for the political groups and the political parties and the army to reach some kind of consensus on how to appoint
6:16 pm
a prime minister, how to come to go to, to get to an agreement on a constitutional arrangement, but more importantly, how to manage the remainder of the transitional period, which according to the military should and by july 2023 with elections held. the military has made it clear that they support this effort may, by the un and the african union and the regional body, i guide. and that's if a consensus is reached, then they would handle the power to whichever government is formed or handled are during elections. so the outcome of these talks of laws to depend on the participants themselves, the army, the political groups. and it's worth noting that many political groups, how by called by quoted this talk saying that did the environment for the talks have not been conducive. and that until political detainees are released until the military provides a conducive environment. they will not be participating in the talks. and what about the protests, the regular protests that we've seen, some of which have been violent of late. i mean it's of these talks likely will
6:17 pm
fact i'm the opposite of people to come out on the streets. are they less likely to protest or more likely, wiley's talks are going all while the process that are happening regularly since the military takeover is being led by some bodies or groups rather known as resistance committees. and since the takeover, they've made it very, very clear that they don't want any go see it or compromise with the military saying any form of negotiation or compromise with give legitimacy to the military takeover. so they're not part of the groups that are participating in today's talks . they have spoken to the you and have met with the united nations here with the african union and the regional body. i got the tree, the 3 bodies that formed the mechanism that is facilitating these talks and they've made it clear asper the un. these bodies have made it clear that they don't want to sit down with the military under direct talks, or even in direct talks. it's worth noting, adrian, that as these talks are happening on wednesday evening, they are protest in several cities in the capital, hot assume, protesting, not just the military rule,
6:18 pm
but the fact that they are political parties currently compromising and negotiating with the military. so it looks like whatever the outcome of these talks are, as long as the military, as part of the, of the talks as part of any solution that comes out of it. as long as they are in the equation, the protests will continue asper the resistance committees that have like, wanted the talks of zeros. hebert morgan reporting live from khartoum about many francs entered and mexico. thousands of migrants continue to make their way north towards the united states. mostly from venezuela and the journey is time to coincide with the summit of the americas on to zeros. manuel rob, hello. as with the group report style from mexico's chair prostrate, a dangerous attempt on the highway in southern mexico to try to make this long trip slightly easier. it's a deadly risk that's already claimed the life of at least one member of the group. rafael, a migrant from the dominican republic says he feels lucky to be alive after falling

6:22 pm
back to the city of back to the city of stuff i chewed up. the overwhelming majority are willing to wait for those. these are the, there's quite a phrase that if they are unable to attain them, that they again run that risk of being a being sent back to the southern mexico. one of the things that the organizers were telling people is to not grow desperate. yesterday on tuesday we saw many, many people as you saw in our report, sort of jumping on the back of these great trucks. we saw injuries of people falling by the end of the day. unfortunately, we also saw one man who ended up under the wheels of a semi truck. so there warning people not to grow desperate. they're the announce somewhere around 2000 people have already left the caravan. again, growing frustrated with the slow pace this group can only move as fast as the slowest members of the group meeting women and there. and there are quite, quite a few families that are tribal traveling is part of it's part of this care events. what we've heard is that somewhere around $650.00 of these transit pieces have been
6:23 pm
issued, the government is promised to issue $500.00 at a time. but we are talking about thousands of people. this is not the largest care event today, but it's certainly the largest one that we've seen so far this year. we're also hearing from people, is that regardless of whether or not they are able to receive their transit business today or tomorrow, they're going to continue to walk. we spoke to an elderly woman in her seventies from nicaragua, who told us that she's tired of waiting. she doesn't want to wait for a transit visa, she's going to go it on her own. this is something that is not recommended for migrant traveling. the sense is that it's better to travel, is a group. they run many, many risk on their way to the northern border, and everyone here is saying that they are committed to reach the us southern border . how serious medical rep, hello, reporting live from southern mexico. many thanks to deed a car has driven into a crowd in berlin, killing one person,
