12:03 pm
just because people were killed but yesterday it was more about just kind of being really think for a kind of america that he couldn't get through the door and that like a much bigger tragedy was. didn't happen the synagogue door didn't open but the attack odenton and his gun too was passers by killing another man at a restaurant. i don't get it i was standing right in the entrance and saw an older woman pass the shop. suddenly a man came up behind her dressed in a helmet and army things or at least very military looking. he was holding a rifle and had a balaclava on. he tried to throw what looked like a hand grenade into the shop. i was also going to hunt but it bounced off the door frame and went off right in front of the old woman with a really loud. and he raised the rifle and began shooting.
12:04 pm

12:05 pm
we have our political correspondent simon young here with me in the studio hey simon so what are the latest developments in the investigation here police have been continuing their investigations on the ground they've searched a number of dwellings including the apartment where this suspect is 27 year old man since you've been living with his mother and neighbors there incidentally say that you know they hadn't noticed anything that noticed any ideological right wing extremist activity or background in that sense so not much is really known about this man police have also recovered a vehicle that he used in the attack and i think they're also trying just to make sure that they fully understand what his movements were on wednesday that he didn't have contact with anyone else because of course that's one of the things police want to understand is you know was he acting alone did he have support is as well
12:06 pm
of course as exactly what his motives must have been ok this is closer to some reaction that we've seen coming out of israel prime minister binyamin this now has expressed condolences obvious states are saying is part of what he's said on twitter and it's you know we wrote the terrorist attack against the jewish community and hello on yom kippur is additional testimony that anti-semitism in europe is increasing i send condolences to the families of the victims and call on the german authorities to continue taking action against anti semitism i'll come back to hear it to you simon here i mean just how how bad was serious is anti-semitism in germany and d.c.l. fourteen's acting well anti semitism and the smitty attacks are a problem and jewish groups have been warning about that for a while the number of those attacks incidents most of the not violent but nonetheless. attacks with the insults being caused all graffiti or attacks
12:07 pm
against cemeteries and so on these kind of things have been on the rise up 20 percent last year on the previous year it said with. over $1500.00 incidents in $28.00 so jewish groups are concerned they say they do want to see more action from the authorities that could include giving the police more powers to pursue anti semitic hate crimes specifically rather than just generally racial hatred crimes also giving courts more powers to sentence more severely on that but the other discussion is around what protection should have been given to the synagogue there's been some criticism that there was and a police presence there on young kapoor the most holy day in the jewish calendar and many synagogues in germany do have routine police protection all the time but
12:08 pm
that's really in the big cities now there's a discussion that maybe that kind of protection should be rolled out elsewhere because clearly you know violent crimes killings extremist actions and this is the worst that we've seen in decades you know in germany against used that is not acceptable as far as the german authorities are concerned i just coming back to today we know that there is they may be a lot happening in dishonest more about that what are we going to see you have your thoughts and politicians want to show that they're concerned the german president. is in hallam now meeting with representatives from the synagogue and just showing his solidarity there and the german interior minister is going to be there later on giving a press conference together with the leader of the jewish community in germany so you know sending a message of support and condolences at this time and we've all been praying coverage for a fast sending out thank you. it's now to some of the other stories

12:14 pm
forward one is to avoid that any form of could have autonomy is created in close to the borders of turkey because in the southeast of turkey most of the people that are living there have. secondly. wants to play a major role in the whole resettlement of syria and wants to show military strength in the region. russia for example iran and the other regional players ok so let's let's look at what this offensive will do we have for example could forces in the east and syria holding what i use feiss that it's. what then happens to them there you know to turkey is holding in the whole northern part of syria also so-called sunni arab regions in the area of it live then they have already captured kodesh areas around of rain and now this is the 3rd invasion into the north an eastern part which is mainly. populated here the kurdish militias have detained

i'm getting louder here in south africa after a recent of a full of violence against women 600000 people have signed a petition asking to bring back the death penalty but the government so far has shown little interest in changing the laws and currently the death penalty is inconsistent with the constitution. most researchers say evidence that the death penalty actually deters crime it's inconclusive constitutional law professor p. . other forces instead calling for a larger and better trained police force and sweeping social change the death penalty is not a magic bullet the problem in south africa is that most cases of murder are never successfully prosecuted only about one in 10 people who commit to murder are actually saying to me so the court said. if people don't believe they're going to ever be caught and prosecuted the kind of sentence you get give is going to make no difference so for a practical reason they shouldn't be
