12:04 am
have no indication that that this suspect was known to them before and while they are treating this as a as a hate crime they have not said that that the motive for this crime could be anti-semitic motives but it seems fairly clear from the suspect's background and the attack itself that they suspect that this was an anti-semitic attack michael we heard a pitts it's beneficial talk about how deeply moved he was by what he witnessed what do we know about how the attack unfolded what do you know about the victims well the attack apparently occurred this morning when the suspect who walked into the synagogue and opened fire and of course on this shot they there are a lot of people in the synagogue for these for these services and he opened fire

12:11 am
a more permanent ceasefire and my impression was they hope that such a ceasefire then could give momentum to greater peace efforts for the rest of syria as well but of course many problems many differences especially when it comes to the future of president assad remain and many more parties and axes need to be involved when talking about syria's future so this is a very first step this summit is a very first step in a long process. all right let's turn now to some of the other stories making news around the world rallies have been held for brazil's presidential candidates a day with ahead of a pivotal rundle for years left leaning fernando had trails by double digits in the latest opinion polls hundreds of bikers rallied in sao paulo for far right candidate and i rule he's pledged to crack down on crime and open the amazon rain forest for economic development. police in mexico have a bend in
