foreigners in a small texas town hold a candle lit vigil to remember the twenty eight victims of sunday's church shooting . hezbollah leader. who's a saudi arabia of forcing the lebanese prime minister to resign. ousted catalan leader pushed him out and four x. ministers are freed by belgian police but with strict conditions. north korea has dominated talks between japan's prime minister shinzo and us president donald trump both leaders agreed the time for dialogue and what they called strategic patience is over trump is on a twelve day tour of five asian countries his visit comes at a time of heightened tension on the korean peninsula as the two countries are in complete agreement on what measures should be taken against the nuclear state.
10:02 am
there is no point in the dialogue for the sake of dialogue with north korea. now is the time not for dialogue but for applying the maximum level of pressure on north korea we completely agreed that in order to make north north korea change their policy japan in us must take leadership in closely collaborating with the international community so that we can and house the pressure to the maximum level over north korea through possible means the era of strategic patience is over. some people said that my rhetoric is very strong but look what's happened with very weak rhetoric over the last twenty five years look where we are right now live to tokyo al-jazeera scott heide is there so scott they say the era for strategic patience is over there in complete
10:03 am
agreement on what steps should be taken against north korea what are they. well one in particular and specific action that's going to be taken by japan at this press conference here in tokyo just within the last hour prime minister shinzo are they said that they'll be unilateral sanctions from japan on freezing assets of thirty five entities and individuals in north korea the specifics will come out on tuesday but that's one thing specifically that japan is doing and also interesting you know we heard the two leaders there talk about how the patience patience has worn thin you know dialogue for the sake of dialogue said is over what they say they need to focus on now is more pressure and both leaders have pointed the finger and said that they need the help of russia and china to make sure that that pressure full pressure can be applied so you can imagine over the coming days when these leaders are going to be seeing the leaders of russia and china in this
10:04 am
present trumps trip throughout the region the next ten days but then also you have an eight pack in an aussie on summits regional summits recent economic summits that are going to be taking place in the coming days they will be there all these leaders so you can imagine that they'll be discussions bilateral discussions possible panel discussions at these summits to figure out how or at least these two nations depending united states to get those other two nations russia and china to put more pressure north korea was the focus of the talks but they also discussed trade what do they say. yeah they did on trade it was interesting because you know as donald trump has said throughout his campaign to be president and almost one of the first things he did when he came into the white house was to to work through all the united states from a big trade package to t p p trans-pacific partnership that was very important to japan so they still haven't really seen eye to eye when it comes to trade present kept saying that there's a trade deficit which upin they're looking forward to working through that they say
10:05 am
they're going to be certain areas where they think they can cooperate more with trade they said that they're going to try to do that but in kind of a pure fashion in this press conference he was going through and saying this he said he'd like japan to continue to thrive but he said but of course we're still the best you'll be number two so saying that they will try to coordinate better on trade but again obviously america first is still the top of mind when it comes to trade with other nations all right scott many thanks indeed scott hyla there live in tokyo. a vigil has been held for the victims of a church shooting in the u.s. state of texas at least twenty six people including children were killed in the attack on sunday and police say the death toll may rise the shooting is the latest of the string of mass killings at the hands of so-called lone wolf gunman as it was heidi jocasta reports. here. on sunday a gathering of christian worshippers turned horrific when
10:06 am
a man dressed in full combat gear walked in and opened fire he was dressed in all black the suspect crossed the street to the church exit is being cool and began firing at the church the suspect then moved to the right side of the church and continued to fire. the suspect enter the church and continued to fire as he exited the church a local resident grabbed his rifle and engage the suspect the suspect dropped his rifle which it was a ruger they are assault rifle and fled from the church at least twenty six people are dead twenty more are injured in this town and fewer than one hundred the death toll makes up a startling proportion of the population if pakistan has a family or family so when it does exist it causes to stop for doing more to pray and see how we can serve and that's what you're seeing right here this community is rallying around these folks and so we're just going to try to do our best to
10:07 am
comfort him and minister how we care but the communities pain here is deep the pastor and his wife were out of town but their fourteen year old daughter is among the dead other children including a five year old were also killed the eldest victim was seventy two investigators say the gunman was devon kelly a twenty six year old man who lived in a neighboring county he led police on a brief vehicle chase after the shooting before being found dead police say it's unclear whether he took his own life or was killed by officers so far no motive has been found we are only hours into this mess cation which is going to take a significant length of time we will continue to provide to provide information as it becomes available we know you're going to have a lot of questions there are many many that we cannot answer us president donald trump speaking from a trip to asia condemned the attack americans do what they do best we pull
10:08 am
together. we join hands we lock arms and just through the chairs and through the sadness. we stand strong oh so strong the church regularly posted a video of its sunday services raising the possibility the massacre was captured on camera this clip is from a week ago we have gathered in this place may you be able to look down from heaven and say those are my children so they gather together in my name and worship me capturing the last days of peace before tragedy castro al-jazeera texas which airing his news conference with president trump was asked about what can be done to curb violence in the u.s. here's how he responded. the mental health is your problem here this was a very based on preliminary reports very deranged individual a lot of problems over a long period of time we have
10:09 am
a lot of mental health problems in our country as do other countries but this isn't a. situation i mean we could go into it but it's a little bit soon to go into it but fortunately somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction otherwise it would have been as bad as it was it would have been much worse but this is a mental health problem at the highest level. one of saudi arabia's princes has been killed in a helicopter crash near the border with yemen a number of saudi officials also died prince bansal been moving outside was the son of the former crown prince immigrant and believed to be a close ally of the current one mohammed bin solomon the videos that you're seeing now been posted on his twitter page hours before his death and show him inspecting defense and environment projects he was the deputy governor of the sea a region which borders yemen. iran and its ally the lebanon based shia group hezbollah have accused saudi arabia the u.s.
10:10 am
and israel of trying to fuel tension in the middle east by pushing lebanon's prime minister to resign saad hariri announced that he was leaving his position on saturday one of the visit to saudi arabia his bonus secretary general hossam the strada says that riyadh is behind the sudden resignation. this is the statement written by his so if you want to discuss it we need to discuss the. the way south is it's not the way of south really it's not the way of. block and what has been written and that is ignition the statement is completely different even since it's sad that harry reid. came to power the way he thinks the way he deals with matters the way his sort out problems doesn't go. with the content of those of
10:11 am
a nation statement hariri says there was an assassination plot against him he criticized hizbollah and iran for their actions in lebanon israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says that iran is trying to dominate the whole region and i think this is a wake up call for everyone it says what the middle east is really experiencing it's experiencing the attempt of iran to conquer the middle east to dominate in subjugated and i think when israelis and arabs and it's all the arms and the israelis i want to agree on one thing. people should pay attention we should stop this is a rainy and take all night i'm solemn as a professor of international affairs and diplomacy at the not saddam university in lebanon he joins us now live from beirut good to have you with us what is your take on all of this did you along with anyone else have any inkling that the prime minister was about to resign. no one in lebanon literally has any idea that resignation by prime minister.
10:12 am
coming literally no one expected was going. everything was going nicely as far as cooperation between prime minister hariri and all of the components of the government. particularly the president general around. all of the other groups and saying this was going from. good to better in the last year prime minister has been prime minister then suddenly he was cornered to go to saudi arabia and he did. hours after his arrival in saudi arabia a lot of the channel. declaring his visit. mazing the end of his own television station in in lebanon.
10:13 am
didn't know. about this and didn't put the video on it later on it took the. media from a lot of media so everyone literally. right what happened and. that is a saudi reason not to lebanese the fact of saudi factor it is it clearly is that the prime minister has been pressured in saudi arabia to declare his resignation what is that what would be the motive for saudi arabia to to pressure lebanon's prime minister to resign and what are we to make of the prime minister's claim is that there was an assassination plot against him. immediately after he declared his resignation and mentioned that there was an assassination dangers against him all of the secure. agencies in lebanon including the one which is
10:14 am
a presided by mr how did his friend interior minister declared that there is that has been no such a report regardless any sets. and therefore that the courses of this as a nation lie someplace and not in any. of the prime minister in fact the security situation in lebanon has been very good compared it was all are suddenly going to start in countries in recent months and even compared with. the states as well we don't see any major source if that is to be any any kind of terrorist attack it will be isolated we don't we're not there no security agency in lebanon expecting any measure or. terrorist attack in lebanon so there isn't really in saudi arabia where the saudi government representing the minister in charge of gulf affairs mr han has been waging
10:15 am
a very strong campaign against hezbollah for the past. three months and he's this campaign has been relentless against hezbollah. and saying that hezbollah out of presenting the influence of iran and lebanon and this should be eliminated as cetera et cetera so the prime minister's resignation should be put in context meaning saudi pressure on lebanon to encircle hezbollah or to encircle iranian influence in about that actually. iranian influence in lebanon or was hezbollah i don't think that's the saudis are able to encircle it in fact iran has been the primary beneficiary of and then you can waters in the middle east particularly in iraq in iraq the iranian have now measured influence in iraq primarily due to american occupation of the. we'll be able to
10:16 am
push out the iranian influence. from. professor. we're going to have to end it there many thanks professor for being with us. a weather update next here on al-jazeera then documents reveal how the super wealthy and big companies hide their money in offshore tax havens twenty seventeen is said to be mexico's most violent here we'll tell you what people there are saying is behind the. deaths. hello find the weather's consolidated to something actionable developing in the gorean sea or around the general or the gulf in general and these sort of thing is
10:17 am
can they really tight be the equivalent of small hurricanes this will certainly get pretty windy in the next what eighteen to twenty four hours bring stormy conditions anywhere from sodomy up to the north of italy a lot of snow on the northern flank and you see the circulation the the green is rains rain south of it and the rain generates the east it is well behind it things cotton but we get the me strong wind a northerly wind blowing down the road valley of southern france that's all the action in europe for the next two or three days and they will be some action but all around it. rains from back into the u.k. as you can see eleven degrees is the forecast temperature in london on the high side of normal but not extraordinary now because of what's happening just the west eventually going to have some rain coming down and hitting north now geria and tunisia still quite woman robots at twenty two degrees or the down to seventy analogy is that will slowly improve as things slide well slight rotate eastwards
10:18 am

10:21 am
over the next week they'll be disclosing their findings so why so much interest well first up the money involved here is huge boston consulting group estimates ten trillion dollars is held in these offshore financial centers and while most of us know them as techs havens few of us actually use them that's because around half of that ten trillion dollars is concentrated not in the rich but in the mega rich think zero point zero zero one percent of households and while in most cases putting your money offshore and outside of your country's financial regulations is legal many argue hiding from the text men is unfair and critics say governments have been slow to deal with it. but it's more than an equality and aleck affinis the offshore financial system is also incredibly secretive arguably enabling the

10:23 am
has been freed from police custody in brussels pushed him out and four of his former ministers handed themselves in to police in belgium after spain issued a european arrest warrant push most lawyers says that he was released under conditions that is expected to appear in court within fifteen days let's go live now to brussels al-jazeera is not the barber can tell us more the dream about pushed once released in the conditions that were placed upon him. well a.j. and let's just remind our viewers that term. and his four former ministers arrived here in belgium last monday and on friday spain issued that european arrest warrant for the fire on charges including sedition rebellion and this use of public money charges which could carry a prison sentence of thirty years now on sunday morning. pushed him on and the four
10:24 am
others went to a central brussels police station and then they were transferred to the building behind me the brussels prosecutor's office where they were questioned for several hours and just before midnight local time on sunday the decision was issued. after the investigative judge had talked to them and he said that they were to be released under the following conditions they were not allowed to leave belgium without the judge's consent they had to communicate the address of a real residence so basically assigning them to a particular address and they promise to attend in person all court hearings and to comply with all summonses and as you were saying they will be appearing before a judge within the next fifteen days but there are several instances several steps in which if the authorities here do agree with spain that they should be sent back
10:25 am
they can. the whole process could take experts say between two and three months adrian and what's been the reaction to all of this there in belgium. well it's certainly morning monday in brussels and we're waiting to hear from or from some of the senior politicians here but already we know that there is a split among belgium's political class the interior minister who's part of the flemish nationalist bloc has said that spain has gone too far in the way it's acted towards colors which demands and in fact are the country's migration minister teo franken from the same flemish nationalist movement has suggested that in fact belgium could offer political asylum to put him on pushing one says he's not interested in that but that could be a tactic he decides to go for later on if all those appeals i was mentioning fail
10:26 am
the prime minister shall michel has been stressing that he had nothing to do with the decision of those politicians to come to belgium and i think that he will be very relieved that it's not up to him and his government to make any decision it's purely up to the courts here in belgium to decide what ultimately happens interestingly enough if the process does take a couple of months which it may well do that would mean that colors put him on can run in the snap regional elections in catalonia on the twenty first of december and it's entirely possible if that happens that he will be reelected to the post from which he was sacked by the madrid government again many thanks indeed that he above of their lives in brussels venezuela's deputy leader of congress has taken refuge in the chilean embassy for the given is accused of inciting violence and anti-government protests on friday the supreme court lifted his parliamentary immunity so that he could answer the charges he's the sixth that has whalen to seek
10:27 am
protection at the chilean embassy in under three months. with all the eighteen thousand people murdered in mexico so far this year twenty seventeen is set to become the country's deadliest year yet the situation is now worse than in two thousand and eleven when the government declared a war on drug cartels. reports from mexico city. would have turned twenty one today instead his family and friends gathered at their local church to remember him he was stabbed to death three months ago at a friend's party following an argument several men arrived and killed him in front of dozens of witnesses no one has been arrested. they must pay for what they've done because they destroyed our family they destroyed all of us he had his whole life ahead of him so many plans. these kids just show up and kill each other that's so rough imagine reaching that extreme
10:28 am
where these youths are killing each other there's a total lack of security. mexico's latest wave of violence is expected to claim over twenty four thousand lives by the end of twenty seventeen worse than at the height of the drug war a few years ago the main reason for the unprecedented numbers say crime tracking n.g.o.s is the splintering of drug cartels into smaller more violent groups that have disrupted areas previously considered safe you look at can you look at extortions or you look at garth have any of the high profile. crimes in mexico. and his state of the union address last month mexican president and said security continues to be his government's main priority but many here disagree arguing that his administration has persisted with failing policies of prior governments ever since the beginning of the drug war in two thousand and six mexico
10:29 am
has made headlines both nationally and beyond in a conflict that continues to unravel but increasingly neither the government nor the private sector is speaking publicly about the worsening security situation or how to tackle it. something that worries analysts as mexico heads into an election year crime rates tend to go up when elections come along. and another thing many mexicans might be distracted thinking that they can change something by electing another party or another candidate or whatever and this doesn't work this way we have to change our strategy. for. parents say they won't rest until those responsible for their son's death are found and tried but ninety eight percent of such murders here go unpunished so like thousands of other mexicans they may never get the justice they seek. you go last may become another statistic in mexico's
10:30 am
