1:13 pm
and the severity of the situation is gradually being dawning upon people. and then throughout the day, hearing expressions of concern and also tributes come again as it was realized that basically she was in a very grave condition and ultimately was pronounced to have died. we have heard that from the secretary of state and to be blink. and he's been speaking here with the said g 20. we've also heard, for example, earlier on this afternoon, that was a daily briefing from the chinese foreign ministry. they, the spokes person that talking about the shock we have heard from the australian prime minister, entity, albany z, saying that his thoughts are with the family of students and also the people of japan from boris johnson of the u. k. there was a message saying about how utterly uphold he was and saddened from the us ambassador to japan rahm emanuel, for example, we heard attributes to. 1 a talking about him being an outstanding leader and an
1:14 pm
unwavering ally of the united states. so there have been gradually messages coming in from here in the g 20 from around the world. and of course, expressions of great shock and sadness itself. b in japan, which has been left really stunned by the departure of somebody who was seen as a political giant. he was the longest serving japanese prime minister, probably the most recognizable face of japanese politics. not only domestically in japan, but probably internationally as well. all right, thank you very much for that report and i doubt those tributes will continue pouring in. rub mcbride at the g 20 summit in bali. thank you. ok, florence louis now has a report on the assassination of japan's longest serving leader schanzer obey had been campaigning in the city of nora ahead of upper house elections this weekend.
1:15 pm
the former prime minister had been speaking for only a few minutes. when i witness report say too loud bangs were heard, and he collapsed to the ground. ah, group of men, a scene tackling another man, believed to have been the shooter to the ground. report say, a 41 year old man has been arrested. public broadcaster and h k ad video of what's believed to be the weapon. other reports showed our bay lying on the ground, his shirt stained with blood. while some one attempted cpr on him. a fire department official said abbe was in cardio and pulmonary arrest. he was airlifted to a hospital. the incident has shocked japan, a country with strict gun ownership laws, and low rates of gun crime. our bay came from a high profile political family. his grandfather had been a prime minister and his father was a foreign minister. after studying politics,
1:16 pm
he rose through the ranks of the liberal democratic party to hold the position of prime minister in 2006, becoming the youngest person to do so. since the 2nd rule, he resigned a year later citing health reasons, but returned to par in 2012. when he set about pursuing ambitious reforms, he pushed an economic agenda dubbed abbe nomics to boost japan's struggling economy . he's been described as a towering figure in japanese politics. he brought stability to a political system that tended to kind of churn out. prime ministers are one after another. and not only that, but he was also transformative and japanese politics. he made japan much more significant player in terms of regional and i was even global security. trying to reshape japan's role in the world stage. one of our these top priorities was amending japan's pacifist constitution. which bars the country from hostile acts
1:17 pm
except in self defense. but the issue was polarizing with polls suggesting many japanese are opposed to any change still pushed to change the constitution right up until the end. but his conservatism would lead to new frictions with his neighbors . a spat with south korea of japan's war time legacy resulted in the worst diplomatic and trade dispute for decades that contributed to japan's continuing economic problems. he also stood controversy with his neighbors. his 2013 visit to the asa cooney shrine, which honors japan's war did. among them some convicted war criminals was widely criticized and he returned several times. but what would turn out to be his last year in office? 2020 brought the devastation of cove at 19. the economy crated abi was widely criticized for miss handling the crisis. and soon after he achieved the record as
1:18 pm
japan's longest serving prime minister came the surprise announcement that he was leaving office early. citing ill health taken that thanks. i took over the administration. i worked hard every single day to revitalize the economy and conduct diplomacy that would protect the national interest during this time. i am proud to have taken on various challenges with the japanese people, but he never left to politics, remaining a member of the lower house and retaining enormous influence within the liberal democratic party. his tragic and untimely end not only shocked the nation, but his leading sum to ask whether a security lapse contributed to his demise. i'd bring in craig, mark now, who's a professor ad kiera su women's university and the author of abbe restoration. he joins me from tokyo. craig, thanks so much for being on this news hour. i'm not sure if you just heard, but the prime minister cache to has spoken and he described abbe as
1:19 pm
a good friend and a great leader. how else do you think our bay will be remembered? we know that he was also a controversial figure. a yes, he did have a controversy through much of his career. as was mentioned in the report, he visited yes, security shrine which caused a lot of our resentments from japan's neighbors. and up to here leave it once he still center offerings, wallace prime minister. the other area of controversy was a numerous nepotism scandal where the various colleagues, friends of his, were accused of corruption where he was accused of using his influence to manipulate funding. public funding, for example, for a getting his political support has invited to a cherry blossom viewing party,
1:20 pm
which was in violation of campaign funding was so why he was dogged by that throughout his career. he was never indicted personally. no. but that did tend to take the shame off is a political achievements. and also he's a failure of epidemics to really revamp the economy. will cycles loss of controversy? and i also also mentioned some mishandling of our responses to the crowd of ours, a pandemic. but overall, he is being remembered as one of the towering figures of japanese politics in the 21st century. and internationally were as well as one of the most experienced statesmen of the democratic countries. craig and the prime minister could shade out was also defiant in that speech. just a few moments, a guy sang his campaigning to sundays up house elections will continue. what impact
1:21 pm
do you think the death of our buy will have on those polls? well, we'll have to wait and see it might intimidate people ah, from a turning up to vote. since such a shocking act of violence might escape people from turning up to vote, which is a voluntary, especially for upper house elections. the voter turnout is often being below 50 percent, but it could also have a bolstering effect either people feel they have to defy this act of political violence and then possibly pay or some tribute to the mr. obeys legacy. this could be expected to work in favor, rob the ruling liberal democratic party. and even before this happens, the a l d p in it's our partner, the tomato party was on track to comfortably win a majority. and that's probably going to happen on sunday, but it is
1:22 pm
a tribute for mr. rob, i, that's a prime minister. kisha has been so defined, you know, saying this, this will not stop on japan's democratic process. and so we're, hopefully the japanese lecture will turn out and show that a clinical violence shouldn't have any impact japanese society in day. thank you very much for your thoughts and craig, mark a professor and also the author of the abbe restoration. we appreciate your time on his knees. alan. if i can, let's move on now. and 2 other world news bars, johnson says he intends to stay on as u. k. prime minister, despite resigning his later of the governing conservative party, he says he'll continue in a k to a capacity until potty members elect his successor. because our growing for his
1:23 pm
immediate departure, the stage is now set for a leadership race that could take weeks. let's bring in poll brennan, who's been covering developments in london. hello, the poll bars johnson wants to stay on in a k. take a capacity. will that actually happen, though? when it can happen? because there's no definitive mechanism for removing him if he doesn't want to go voluntarily. i mean, it is traditional for the outgoing prime minister to at least have a hand over period before the new prime minister comes into office. there are differences though, between, for example, gordon brown, who lost an election or david cameron, who was on the wrong side of the bricks. it debates and theresa may, who couldn't get legislation through those. those were matters of policy and, and voting. the reason why boris johnson has fall and is very different, it's because his own back benches, his own cabinet ministers felt he didn't exhibit truthfulness sore integrity. these
1:24 pm
were personal problems of boris johnson, the man as opposed to political problems with him overall. and that is why there is a huge amount of disquiet that he should be allowed to sit in downing street as a some kind of caretaker, prime minister and the leader of the liberal democrat opposition party, sir a davy said it was frankly ludicrous. he said another signatory m p. it said it was beyond credulity. but the reality is that as the hours of past minutes were in the bit of a low now after yesterday's feverish atmosphere here in westminster, a sense of acceptance, i think is dawning on the conservative party that if he is not going to go voluntarily, there's very little they can do to force him out, and some of the crowds i'm seeing, there's no such thing as a caretaker m p a, sorry, p. m, at winnie. now to focus on the leadership contest route, getting resolved in weeks rather than months. in an ideal world, said one of the treasurer of the 1922 committee in an ideal world, dominic rob the deputy prime minister would have stepped up, but that ship has sailed. is the quote. so i think the conservative party coming to
1:25 pm
terms with the fact that they can't oust boris johnson despite the fact that many of them would like to. and when that does happen, paul, who's being tipped is his likely replacement. it's very, very early days and we haven't really got the full field of the contenders. a couple of early contenders tom to gun data, the attorney general soil braverman that said we're waiting for the real kind of what we call the big beasts of fire of u. k. politics of the conservative party. you would have thought that such a javert who was the health secretary, who resigned on tuesday, he was the 1st to go the 1st big a big political figure to actually resign. and protested boris johnson also wishes soon act the former chancellor who quit on tuesday as well. they were the early principles resignations and the other people who are being mentioned are people like list trust, the foreign secretary, who's racing back from the g 20 in indonesia. most likely to throw her hat into the
1:26 pm
rank. and there are other people like jeremy hunts who actually contested that leadership against boris johnson the previous time. so we're not, we're yet to see the full field. very rarely does that to the early people who pop their head of of the parapet fairly rarely do they make it through to the final rounds or at po, thank you very much for giving us that update hope and in life rest in london. thank you. still a head on out his ear and the former police officer who was convicted of murdering george floyd. it's another 20 years. we'll tell you why. anger on the straits of hazy protest is demand justice. the president is german elmo. we see one year after his assassination and installed rafael and the dial has been forced to pull out of his wimbledon. semi final will tell you why a little later in the program. ah .
1:27 pm
with how i was see some very heavy rain recently into parts of the philippines and also eastern areas of indonesia. so that easter side of the southeast asia, seeing some very heavy rain. this is east indonesia, 181 millimeters of freight, unusual wet weather here, farther north into the philippines, over a 100 millimeters of friends that western side of the philippines over the last 24 hours than that. where to where the will just ease its way. a little further west was a monsoon showers. of course they are pushing towards southern parts of vietnam and really pair pop as we go on through the weekend into the early part of next week. expect to see some localized flooding coming through here. elsewhere. much of malaysia. what is sunshine is showers more sunshine than showers the further west to go? still some live shows. it was the eastern side of indonesia campaign to say some possible straight here, not to wet over the next couple days where we will still see wanted to shout
1:28 pm
creeping their way toward sydney. the wet weather is easing out, across the ditch, pushing towards new zealand. we'll see some wet and windy weather coming in here over the next day or so. so the showers into the southeast of australia still in places we go on through saturday, maybe still a shower or 2 towards sidney that it has cooler and wetter and windier for new zealand. ah ah. ah.
1:29 pm
safe going home and then international anti corruption excellence award. boat now for your hero. oh, i hello, are you watching? 0, i'm emily, angling. he's a reminder about top stories this hour. the former prime minister of japan. she has
1:30 pm
died after he was shot during a campaign event in the city of nora. he was $67.00 japanese and world leaders have been paying tribute to the countries longest serving prime minister embarrass. johnson says he intends to stay on a few k prime minister until members of his conservative party elect his successor . but caused growing for his immediate departure. staying with our top story and these estimation of japan's former prime minister sions by japan is often seen is one of the safest countries in the world. how does that is because of its extremely low gun violence. the number of gun deaths per year is rarely more than 10. police are the only people allowed to have hand guns, hunters and target shoot up emitted to own shot guns and a rifles. but even that involves an all day course and a written test. there are also background and mental fitness checks as well as drug tests. i was allegedly shot by
1:31 pm
a hand made gun. japan's 1st arrest full possession of a homemade trade, a firearm was back in 2014. for more on this that led, bringing tina barrette to is an associate professor of political science at sophia university in tokyo and a visiting fellow at cambridge university. tina, thanks so much for being on this news hour. i want to get your thoughts on jeans or of a legacy in a moment, but firstly, as i just mentioned, gun violence is such a rarity in japan fact with something like was happen. i think it's very shocking, said the japanese public. you say it's very rare that anybody in japan has possession of handguns and the last assassination of a politician in the way was back in 2007 the marriage. nagasaki had linked to the yankees, the japanese mafia. this is very different situation, and this isn't the seem to be an individual acting on his own impulses. but the fact that the gum is homemade, i think,
1:32 pm
is something that makes stephanie people perhaps see a little bit more uncomfortable, a little bit more afraid because it's a possibility. if somebody manufacturing their own weapon is not something that we've seen in japan before and came out, we heard also from the current prime minister, a being defined basically about the upcoming election. so how do you think that they will proceed on sunday? yeah, it sounds like they will take place scheduled, and i think that's actually the right thing to do. i think japanese people mean that sensible that grownups, they can separate. the tragedy that happened today, the underlying political issue that the election has been about up until that point . i think there's a possibility that would be some simplicity vote for the l d. p for prime is kesha . there is a member of the same policy form, a prime minister, all bang, what i think in the election. and we'll go ahead and it will be about the economic issues which are troubling most japanese people, including inflation,
1:33 pm
which is obviously a global issue right now. indeed, it came out. why would someone one to ha i think it's difficult to speculate about the motives of this particular individual. it seems like he has some kind of garage again, the prime minister, although we don't know the details about we didn't know if they were particular political issues regarding our base legacy that make this individual in the way that he did. we know that i'll be quite a controversial figure domestically within japanese politics. and his agenda was more nationalistic than a lot of other for my japanese time, it says he reformed areas around defense, for example, in ways which were more effective than have been traditionally the case on his legacy. i think we can see a lot more right way when you moved japan more towards the right during his long tenure. so it is possible, it has some connections about. but right now,
1:34 pm
it seems like this individual doesn't need to be connected to other people through some kind of political networks. so we'll just have to all just have to wait and see. tany mentioned based on his nationalist and right wing policies. but he also had a clear vision and, and goals. how else will he be remembered? yeah, i mean, i think, you know, all bay is a figure that is globally recognized. i'm not quite unusual for japanese prime ministers. he said, for a long time he put for me relationships with all the world leaders, front and center as part of his agenda. and i think he quite successfully raised not only his own profile, but japan profile internationally during his tenure. and i think it's something that will help me in quite univers, me, in japan, is respected. he would remember about she'll be remembered for bringing the pics to japan, i think more difficultly he'll be remembered for his government, somewhat hazard response to the current
1:35 pm
a virus pandemic and also for his next economic policy which delivered quite mixed results. so his legacy, i think won't be a straightforward one, which is understandable. somebody who for such a long time and did have a very clear set of ideological positions, which people reacted to strongly. one way or another while we really appreciate your insight. thank you very much. your time time speak to us, tina brett, and associate professor in. take your appreciate time moving on now to the war in ukraine. and you kind presidency. lensky says, as many as 700 troops have been killed or wounded every day in the conflict with russia, the health services are stretched as it tries to save the lives of the mounting number of injured soldiers. alan fish fall. this report from ki they fought for the country another, fighting their own personal battle, soldiers winded,
1:36 pm

1:39 pm
a jury found him guilty of 2nd and 3rd degree murderers in the killing of george floyd. so this federal sentence of just over 20 years is for the civil rights violations associated with that killing, which are, are federal crimes. and shelven actually pleaded guilty to the set of charges back in december, which was his 1st time publicly taking responsibility for the actions that lead to george voids to death. that pre deal resulted in today's sentencing of just over 20 years and it avoided the potential for a 2nd trial and a possible maximum sentence of life in prison. shelven did not offer an apology, though he was given the opportunity to during today's sentencing, he did say that he wished george boyd's children well, but again, this family is still left with that hearing question of why this happened. and george flights brother had asked the judge to sentence shelven to the maximum
1:40 pm
sentence, saying that george floyd's family would be serving a life sentence of a lifetime without george floyd. and again, with a lifetime of asking that still haunting question of why did this have to happen? there been protests in haiti on the 1st anniversary of the assassination of president of an ama wasting the killing and resulting power vacuum triggered an increase in violence by criminal gangs and a massive political crisis. alexandra ramp yeti before a somber ceremony for a country. this re a year after president jovan elmore east was assassinated, haitian treaties and diplomats met to mark the occasion. the current acting president lee says he's committed to seek justice. i'm determined to encourage the continuation of the investigation until its conclusion . patient justice can count on the unconditional support of the government. despite
1:41 pm
