3:03 pm
what they do know about the suspect is that he's 25 years or years of age. he was arrested and a knife was recovered. here at the scene, he is now in custody. now the police say that they're not looking for anybody else in relation to this incident. we don't know much about the suspect nor his motivation behind the attack. but what we are seeing now is tributes and statements are pouring in throughout the day across the political spectrum. we've also heard from forest johnson at the prime minister who is now in downing street and he said, i think all our hearts are full of shock and sadness today. and above all, to david amos was kind and decent politician. he was one of the kindest, nicest, those gentle people in politics. and he also had an outstanding record of passing laws to help the most vulnerable david with a man who believe passionately in this country and in its
3:04 pm
future. well, people in the local community are absolutely heartbroken. i have held a vidual to remember his life. they say he stood up for the rights of local people and use his parliamentary platform to advocate for them to know, of course, david amos was 69. he spent 4 decades in politics. he currently held his since 997, but was a serving m p 's since 1983, making him one of the longest standing m p. 's in government. now he was a big voice in many campaigns, not least, the breck that campaign, and also a huge animal rights advocate as well. sadly, he leaves behind a wife and 5 children. now as the nation is in an absolute state of shock, many also are now calling for more security unsafe for protocols for members of parliament in britain,
3:05 pm
especially considering the really chilling similarities to the matter of jo clocks, who was stopped and shot to death back in 2016. again, that was just before her very own constituency surgery meeting. it's also really sad to know that said david. a message last tweet was actually talking about this constituency surgery invitation, saying to the local community to com and chat to him face to face for, for many m p. 's. this is a really pastor, no tragedy for them. and a terrible reminder of the very real risks that they face in the jobs of a normal friday today, turns very hiring and very violent indeed, and a much investigation is now underway. david amos had been a frequent guest here at ortiz, where he shared his opinions and views on politics in the u. k. joining me now for more on this is conservative m p for south and west said david amos hobbs elected
3:06 pm
on the same day. 1983 as this gentleman. we need to have a government who know what they're doing. i don't mind hard work and in fact the irony is it would go back to the size of constituents i had when i used to represent basil hamlin. i don't think is anything to do with party politics and the number of seats to david. thanks for speaking to us here. very sad news today. moving on a us marine has been sentenced to after pleading guilty to disobeying his superiors . he had criticized the military leadership for the way they handled. the exit from afghanistan. stewart shell remains adamant, though the top ross needs to be held to account or senior correspondent, murat. gusty of picks up the story for us. there is the opinion that he got off very light. all things considered the scandal that he caused winter went right up to congress and the united states military, we will know it doesn't like scandals. it does,
3:07 pm
it's best to deter for those who would start scandals and that it's squashes scandals out sometimes in a very harsh way. so it was surprising that instead of a paths, jail time, perhaps a dishonorable discharge, all he was sentenced to was a $5000.00 fun, which will be dogged from his wages next month, as well as a letter of reprimand. there's told off basically. so he gets an honorable or less than honorable discharge, as well as gets the keep all of his or all the pension that he has worked up on the 17 years of service before he went into the court. ah, he said that ultimately he had to bear responsibility for his actions. just as those above him had to bear responsibility for their actions as including the chaotic withdrawal from canisters. i did what i did because i thought it was in the best long term interest of the marine corps going forward. i'm still demanding
3:08 pm
accountability. there were those who supported him. have said that, yes, these evacuation was completely humiliating. it was insulting to all the americans that sacrificed their lives who owe their health in order to fight that born of canister. and for america to leave and such a manner was absolutely tragic. there were also those that said that we shouldn't have done this because the united states military has a different code of conduct. and so they're not allowed to criticize those above them of senior rank. but ultimately, over the course of all these videos that we saw released by him in the build up to this trial, he was making one point and 11 point only that somebody must be held accountable for the disaster. as many americans he, it that we saw at the end of august at the airport and cobbled people are upset because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the
3:09 pm
in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions, not because i'm been did, but because the senior leader he to be held accountable to the same standard as us the terrorist attack the on the input of gobble and the 26th of august. it was a, it was a mess. there were almost 200 people killed. everybody has admitted that yes mistakes were made. but to date, nobody has decided to bear responsibility for what happened there and cobble broadcast fee of all the televisions returned to power. following the u. s. exit has failed to improve the country security situation. according to local officials, more than 40 people were killed in an attack on a mosque earlier today, scores more were badly injured. a warning you may find the following image is
3:10 pm
disturbing. the explosion happened on the shia mosque in the city of kandahar. during friday prayers. a large crowd had gathered there as always, the telephone government says it's launched an investigation. today's last comes just a week after i'm explosion toward through another she a mosque in the north of the country. 50 people were killed, isis, k claim responsibility for they attack or take home to peter. richard met her, looked back at what happened then, and asked why is law make a state is intensifying its deadly activities in the country. last week, a tragic terrorist attack in afghanistan. the explosion occurred during friday. prayers at a mosque in conduce, in northern part of the at least a 100 people were killed or wounded. most of the victims has ara shias and a thing minority. isis k quickly stepped up to claim responsibility for the attack . but with one intriguing detail, turns out the suicide bomber was a,
3:11 pm
you grew muslim from china's changing province. this is very interesting because you girls are indeed a minority muslim population in china. and usually the only thing you hear about them is that the chinese government is committing genocide against them. well, here's something the media i haven't told you. there are indeed many ogres in afghanistan, militants who are members of various jo, hottest groups like al qaeda or isis there. actually. so many of them, the united nations put out a report in june about foreign fighters in afghanistan. the report estimates that there are between 8010000 foreign terrorist fighters, comprised mainly of individuals from central asia, the north caucasus region of the russian federation, pakistan and the shin, january thomas region of china, among others. although the majority are affiliated foremost with the taliban, many also support al qaeda. others are allied with iso or have iso sympathies.
3:12 pm
another one of these groups is e t i m would stand for the east torcous don islamic movement. this huger extremist group used to be on the united states list of terrorist organizations. but for some reason, in 2020 united states, remove them from the list us cozying up to terrorist groups, using them as proxies for regime change in countries. they don't like where we seen that before. latin america of ghana, stan syria, speaking of syria, there are 5000 uga terrorists over there, fighting alongside other jaundice. but just going back to afghanistan for the last 20 years, the u. s. has had an enormous military footprint on china's doorstep. now the most of its truth of withdrawn in the united states is shifting its focus from them, at least to china. the u. s. wants to keep china's border with janice, n as unsafe as possible, and a constant worry by tacitly endorsing. but the very least turning a blind to i,
3:13 pm
the terrorist groups. and the us in the u. k. m is supporting separatist movements in china going back decade. this is all part of america strategy to mess with china . create chaos. divide and conquer with the united states is making a huge mistake. once again. dislike they back the majority, dean and the 1980s to fight soviet. now they're implicitly backing you the terrorists in order to fight the chinese. and, you know, there comes a point where you really have to understand that backing jihad is, is not a good idea. there's nothing beneficial about someone's blowing themselves up and committing a terrorist attack. i mean, this is incredible. how many times is it gonna take for the united states to realize that backing which i, dean in afghanistan or anywhere for that matter is a really bad idea. they did it in the 1980s. they back when loudon, it came back to bite them. it always does. and this is no exception. let's keep attention on this story because earlier we asked political commentary, chris bomb,
3:14 pm
bryan, anti war activist brian becker. what the 20 year long american anti terror operation actually achieved for afghanistan to decades, american read occupation has increased the number of to harvest groups, increase the allergy, hardest fighters on the growing, the afghanistan as a reaction to what the americans did, check with industry killing of civilians by drawing the bombing attacks. therefore, i don't think we should hold off the american presence as be forced to stability in afghanistan. it actually de, stabilize the country across the board. and it rebuilt support the tower. but the main point on makers is that the americans are not part of a solution in afghanistan. they were part of the problem. let's remember the big picture, the context. when the united states invaded afghanistan on october 7th, 2001, there was no isis. the whole war on terror by the united states, which is included the death of 250000 afghans during the past 20 years. and
3:15 pm
that has created that has created that has been the trigger or the catalyst for the further expansion of ice is or isis like formations. so from a on its face, the war on terror has been a complete and utter failure because rather than containing or stopping this kind of extremism or terrorism, it has accelerated and expanded it as a phenomenon. the former us national security advisor, john bolton, will be sharing his thoughts on that us pull out along with other foreign policy issues. when he sits down with ortiz going underground show, you'll be able to watch the full interview tomorrow. saturday. you say in your book the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment? as a former national security advisor,
3:16 pm
a fee by the administration foreign policy, especially on afghanistan. well, i think this is one of those few instances where biden and trump agree on on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many people thought were foreseeable, what biden did was take trump's deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as his own policy disregarded the advice of senior advisors and the pentagon, the state department, the white house, and i think the consequences have been plain to say that returned to afghanistan to control by the taliban and everything that's flowing from that, including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning and again, using afghanistan is based plan terrorist operations around the world. so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage, something been believed. and since at least 2000, i say say, ironically,
3:17 pm
trump wave done it to, i think it's a mistake for the u. s. i think it's a mistake for stability. certainly, it's a mistake for the people of afghanistan, the head ceiling into a store, moscow's not backing down after stopping a u. s. warship from apparently attempting to violate russian territorial borders. we've got that and more coming up shortly. ah, and decisions tactile perception as well as his or her. i saw it helps a lot because you need to make sure you don't like the thread. well, seeing the searches and robotic hands can't do that. not now. and i believe not ever. you can write software for the machine, but you cannot give a human tactile perception. ah, ah,
3:18 pm
ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah ah. just approaching 90 minutes past the are
3:19 pm
a welcome back facebook seal market zuckerberg may have used his vast well to swing the 2020 presidential election enjo biden's favor. that's according to a study carried out for the new york post. researchers find out his donations to electoral organizations heavily favored left leaning districts in swing states. but the democrats ended up taking the 2020 election was stolen, it was likely bought by one of the world's wealthiest and most powerful man pouring his money through legal loopholes. he funded the targeted private takeover of government election operations by nominally non partisan but demonstrably ideological nonprofit organizations. we should stress there. there is no suggestion of illegality in zucker, bergs, donations on the facebook air boss himself says he only gave to non partisan organization. last month, priscilla and i donated $300000000.00 to support election officials with the
3:20 pm
infrastructure. they need to administer the vote. today. we're committing an additional $100000000.00 to make sure that every jurisdiction that needs funding to help people vote safely can get us on. nevertheless, the report has infuriated republicans who accused they facebook liter of election. mental joe zocker burke. he spent over $400000000.00 through these quote, non profits to quote help with election administration. but what they would do is they would require certain things to be done like mass mail, bowing bout harvey things. and they would focus on partisan voter turnout basically that was totally unacceptable. aro elections for sale, did mark zuckerberg purchase the wisconsin presidential election? what we know is that one of the main beneficiaries of the facebook funding was the center for election innovation on research. and it has had back of the claim saying
3:21 pm
it was proud to assist both republicans and democrats in the election. journalist daniela's are things private funding. there is a pivotal role in the outcome of american elections. this is the privatization of elections. and when you privatize elections, essentially you undermine their neutrality and their objectivity. though it's very possible that the of this money helps to your voters in a certain direction and help determine the outcome of the election. the electoral process in u. s. is a mess. this is the only country where this takes place. election should be entirely government funded. they should be entirely neutral and objective. they should not favor any party whatsoever. and there's no reason to have an injection of prob, private money of this magnitude, that should be reform process, but it's just not going to happen because the system is completely broken and it's
3:22 pm
totally out of control. transport workers in italy are threatening strike action over and you covered so named green pass system with rallies held in several major cities across the country. people are protesting against new rules which require all workers to show proof of vaccination or a negative cobit test. or else, go with i pay, or europe correspond, peter, all of her sent us this report from a protest being held in the nation's capitol. it's lee has become the latest country to see it. citizens upset about the introduction of coven 19 vaccine passports, the the e. u. green pass, a digital certificate that allows you to show that you've received your vaccinations is commonplace across the whole of the european union. however, in italy, they're looking to use it to a stronger degree than it is being used elsewhere. and that's why on friday we saw demonstrations in 9 different cities across italy. the largest of those
3:23 pm
demonstrations was interested in the northeast of the country. we have a look at what was going on there. right now. we're faced for, we're here to protest against the green path for workers. would think that the as is an unlawful tool, an improper one that should not be forced upon the workers because it is discriminatory. so we are demonstrating against this government decree on was our constitution as being trampled on to what is happening today is like by can 19th the 8 norquist, i say, no to this discrimination, but i don't carry arnold in all this deepening cluster void. we're not looking for compensation, both openness and opportunity for reasoning. here we are talking about economic recovery, but whose economic recovery have families less even more in crisis around those who previously could not make until the end of the month. now find themselves in an average of 200 or 300 years last effort from home to pay for the test. for the reason people have been upset with this move by the italian government to demand that the digital coven pass. the green pass be shown is because they've gone farther than most of the european countries. people are gonna have to show this in
3:24 pm
order to go to any job already. you are having to show it to, to get into restaurants, to eat, endorse also to go to, to more leisure activities, but for everybody to have to show want to go to work. that's a different issue entirely, especially when it comes with the prospect of a 1500 euro fine for those that can't produce a coven green pass. now we've heard from a union leaders, particularly those involved with the ports in which shipping saying it could potentially cause huge problems with the supply chain in italy. because many of the workers who are employed at things like ports, they come from eastern europe and have been vaccinated with russia's sputnik vaccine. now, the sputnik job is not approved by the european medicines agency. and therefore, if you've been vaccinated with sputnik, you can't get a european green pass, so therefore you would be be falling fall of the rules here. now those
3:25 pm
demonstrations took place on friday. we are expecting demonstrations on saturday of a different kind. now these are going to be organized by the left party here in italy as well as the, the miss union in the country. it's after the headquarters were ransacked last week during a demonstration by fall right elements sold, the antique covered pos, movement. now they've organized this protest to say no to fascism across a italy that would be keeping an eye all not protested, as it develops throughout saturday. and a nother story to bring before we go to break russia's defense ministry has some of the u. s. military tashay after navy forces blocked on alleged attempt by an american worship to violate russian territorial waters in the sea of japan. with more in the story here is ortiz armstrong, russia, the defense ministry, has summoned the u. s. military. a. tasha after a u. s. war ship attempt to cross russian maritime borders in the russian far east
3:26 pm
. now that happened when the u. s. s. chafie attempted to cross the russian borders . the pizza, the great bay warship had been operating according to sources in the sea of japan. up until that time, now, the sea of japan is important because right there at the moment, russian and chinese forces undertaking military training. the maritime interaction is 2021, taking place and that includes the use of live artillery. now the u. s. s. chafie attempted across the borders and instead of taking heed of warnings, raised in colored flags that indicates a helicopter taking off from its deck, he also makes it impossible to change its speed on its course, he was eventually persuaded to turn back by the russian anti submarine vessel, the admiral 3 boots. now the russian defense ministry has called this a grave violation of international rules. whereas the white house,
3:27 pm
on the other hand, the said he still is not aware of any confrontation between us and russian warships . how that will affect the relations between the 2 countries, remains yet to be seen. as a reminder, for all the big updates as we enter the weekend to try and give you a follow on twitter, our social teams are working to make sure you don't miss anything off worth buy from the well, the gig is, ah, president of a latin american country armed with volcano energy is calling out the wall street and the whole financier class ah,
