among those heart police say the suspect is a local man whom they plan to interview as soon as his conditions permit begin for her not assuming an attack but we do think it was an intentional act we don't yet know the background of the investigation isn't far enough along to say anything about a potential motive cases state premier appeared moved. 5 days after the terrorist attack in hama of course it's in the back of everyone's mind my god not again but my advice is that we remain calm doesn't help anyone if we all start speculating wildly police canceled all carnival parade state wide following the incident authorities have set up an information hotline an appeal to eyewitnesses to send them photos and videos and not to post them anywhere else. reporter emmanuelle a chase is in full mars and she joins us now emmanuel what's happening where you

11:05 am
a silence and then people started crying shouting that is something that people hear this morning in folks martin book martin harbin repeating to me that something that really shocked them to violence the intensity of i just happened and one of the big questions is what the strivers motive could have possibly have been do we have any further information on that front. on that front we have no further information we know that he's a 2029 year old man who is from. fork mohsen and he's been taken to hospital because he sustained he sustained some injuries he seemed unable to speak so authorities cannot interview him i have to question him at the moment to us as to his. soon as he will be able to do so he will be questioned apparently he doesn't have an extremist background but he's known to police for coercion the for trespassing and for verbal abuse but otherwise his
11:06 am

11:16 am
the south the north not to send anymore italians from the north to the thaws so they want to divide between the north and the south but the italian government is so far not able and willing to do that but tensions are running high between the south and the north now and talk with us a little bit more about the economic impact that this has been having for the entire. economy. the stock exchange in experienced a black monday yesterday a slight of 6 percent and nobody knows what will happen today and estimates by economic experts know that the italian economy of a shrink by 0.5 or one percent in the 1st half of this year and that means it will even slide into recession that means less taxes for the state and also more debt maybe public that and all the consequences that would follow so this is
11:17 am
a huge impact and many people also say it is only a coronavirus it's only in. it don't overdo the measures don't kill the economy and bring the whole country to a grinding halt corresponded back to reagan in milan thank you. so. you're watching news still to come on the program if you worry that you are hooked on social media berlin's international film festival has just the movie for you a french production delete history poses the question aren't we all being held hostage by social media. but 1st in new york jury has handed down what's being called the most anticipated verdict of the me 2 era how they were produced the harvey weinstein has been found guilty of rape and sexual assault in a trial that centered on testimony by 2 women his lawyer says that he will appeal the verdict which carries a jail term of up to 25 years the time's up foundation formed in the wake of the
11:18 am
weinstein accusations said that a new era of justice has begun. it was his last day of freedom for the moment the 12 jurors found harvey weinstein guilty of 2 of the 5 charges against him the jury found the former hollywood producer guilty of rape and sexual assault. 2 years ago production assistant mimi haley accused weinstein of having forcibly performed oral sex on the women have the right to say no. and now we can know regardless of the circumstances. and i told her i've you know jessica man accused of going steen of rape here the jury found him guilty of 3rd degree rape and determine that he didn't use physical force but did not obtain mom's consent. rape is rape whether each committed by a stranger in a dark alley or by an intimate. you know working relationship migrating up

11:20 am
a longer pass because it shows us that the victims voices the survive as voices have been heard and they have been taken seriously and that's a very very important thing just as much as to see legal consequences for a perpetrator you know the importance of this for you know those survivors of assault harassment victims especially in the entertainment industry cannot be overemphasized but in your opinion do you think that this really sets the industry up for real change i hope so i hope that it encourages people to speak up and not only people who are affected by abuse or harassment but also people witnessing these things but i think we mustn't forget that identifying these sects as such is one of the issues that we're still tackling so what we have to do now is to educate people on how to recognize what is an act of sexual harassment for example and how does a play into power structures so this is the way that we need to go still so what
11:21 am
would then be your suggestion in terms of how to carry that out well to educate people who make just the people who are in power but also everyone working in the industry basically and how to identify this kind of situations and what you can do to support people who suffer from this do you think that we have more trials ahead now in the years to come in the wake of the harvey weinstein hope so but i think to fully answer those questions we have to wait for the final sentence also and we thank you so much for joining us here on the program to share your perspective so if you share the reader founder of the feminist film blog called the film lioness we appreciate. the 70th birthday an international film festival is in full swing and one film showing out of the competition is hillary a u.s. documentary about the former 1st lady and hilary herself was in berlin walking the red carpet for the screening where she was met by fans and critics the film looks at clinton's life from her upbringing in chicago all the way to her failed bid to
