4:04 pm
group. all thora tese were quick to label the incident a terrorist attack. let me be clear to based on the information we have at this moment this was an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians u.s. president donald trump took to twitter to offer condolences to the victims and their families. he also ordered the department of homeland security to step up its vetting of people traveling to the u.s. for now all thora chief say there's no evidence the attack was part of a wider terror plot and they believe the suspect acted alone. to new york where we join our journalist james that rival welcome to bring us up to date on the investigation yeah thanks so much.

4:06 pm
islamic state in the middle east and the future of immigration in the u.s. will come to that shortly let's talk about this the suspect so fall outside of what's known of him. yeah look the details are actually amazing about him you've already said in the report that he was twenty nine years old and immigrant he's under arrest and we've all probably seen the photo of him with a very very thick beard standing about five and a half foot tall about one point seven meters he's been in the u.s. for about seven years came over on a diversity lottery visa that's given out to people from countries that have very low levels of immigration to the u.s. you enter it it's a lottery he'd been living in tampa florida and also in paterson new jersey which is a lot closer to new york city he's believed to be in a legal resident here and the taxi app has confirmed that he had been
4:07 pm
working as a driver for them he'd come to the attention of both or it is here a couple of times but something minor like a traffic fine in the story and also he was under investigation for an unrelated issue by federal or thought his last year it's been reported in the new york times and james briefly alluded to this has now returned from the specific of the attack in sort of more general look at america's immigration policies i wonder if you could give us the ramifications briefly if you wouldn't mind. yeah of course i mean obviously when donald trump with elected last year that one of the big things that he thought of the campaign he said we need to we need to crack down on who is getting into this country because there is the danger of exactly these kind of attack when he was on twitter talking about this obviously but it's condolences to the victims and their families and about the potentially i think linked attack
4:08 pm
a very sick and deranged underneath boken about the need to stop letting islamic state being able to. effect and carry out or at least direct attacks again against people in flight the united states has called for a crackdown a clampdown and a tightening up of the of the vetting of individuals and his railed against senator chuck schumer of new york saying that these kind of thought liberal left the policies have allowed too many bad guys in the u.s. all right i'll be. back up again. in new york and that's time thank you so much thank you i suspected islamic extremist to stop and wounded two police officers near tunis yes paula meant leaving one in intensive care the suspect who was previously known to all sorts as has been arrested police have been deployed to the area including the nearby bardot square which was the
4:09 pm
site of one of the country's deadliest attacks in twenty fifteen. dollars nationalist partition faintest talks with the progress his democratic unionist party of failed it's been ten months since a power sharing administration in belfast collapsed and now the british government says it is preparing to impose a budget on northern ireland but stresses it does not want to see a return to direct rule. over six hundred asylum seekers are refusing to leave an australian immigration camp on an island in papua new guinea the mannus island tension sense of was closed on tuesday after local authorities declared it unconstitutional last australia had funded the camp to deter migrants from trying to reach its shores by boat. and russia's president vladimir putin's raising with his iranian counterpart has rouhani in teheran talks will focus on the conflict in syria as moscow considers a new initiative to end the six year civil war iran and russia want fresh elections that would include current room abashed assad president of azerbaijan's also
4:10 pm
meeting mr putin and iranian officials in a three way summit between the neighboring countries. more on this from side to come on a deck whose i mean radian the british journalist for the guardian newspaper in london welcome to d w how significant is this meeting between president putin and his iranian counterpart. i mean it's president putin fareed visit to iran since president rouhani was elected to office in two thousand and thirteen so iran and russia have an important ally and in the region as you mentioned syria is very important because both of them are very stange supporters of bashar al assad's regime in syria but also important for iran is the nuclear deal it's very not just last month president truman washington he said defied iran's compliance with the deal making it difficult for iran but the other side of this agreement russia
4:11 pm
included china germany france and england now the u.k. all of them are saying that they want to preserve the deal and continue so for iran you know in the face of trams opposition is important to maintain a good relationship with russia it's helping get financially and also regionally with politics including syria so so it ron is looking to go to russia debt to help it against the u.s. when it comes to their own nuclear deal. remember russia has said it very walkable it did they are opposed to any attempts to renegotiate the nuclear issue for example or just scrap it now frankly iran has been abiding by the agreement as testified by the i.a.e.a. the international atomic energy agency latest report so u.s. undecided is isolated but has a huge influence for example european banks are still reluctant to do business with
4:12 pm
iran because of punishments by the u.s. treasury so a lot of president travelers are split on the agreement but u.s. has a huge influence and a second iran i'm sorry to answer some as i would just cut across the there at running out of time i do want to get to syria what what is the hope that a between these two countries are about syria i mean that that's the context of issues you know iran's and russia's support for syria is controversial they are the only reason in our bashar assad is still in power and in syria is because of iran's russia's support and frankly there is no forseeable signs that the other side of this conflict the us turkey the arab states are backing the opposition and iran and russia have been adamant that bashar assad has to stay in power but as islamic state is pushed out of syria the next step of what happens in syria whether bashar assad will have all control in syria or our position will have any any role
4:13 pm
is the big question and i think russia and iran want to make sure that the shots that bashar assad stays in power commodity from the guardian newspaper in london thank you. to learn is ousted president a car less a pushed about will not return to madrid for questioning on thursday morning to his lawyer in belgium but to push them out may agree to testify from self-imposed exile in brussels where he arrived on monday has been summoned to spain's high court to face charges of rebellion and sedition man who unilaterally proclaimed independence for catalonia has said he does not believe he would receive a fair trial in madrid here's his lawyer poll back cat on the subject. he won't go to madrid and i made an offer that he could be questioned here in belgium it is possible i don't know if he will do it but it is possible i had in
