6:02 am
from near the scene of the crash and rob we've been hearing more from the los angeles county sheriff to hold a press conference sports the largest there. well the latest on the investigation is that there will be in the sea and best to get is that's the federal national transportation safety board that will be coming to look at the wreckage on the hillside which is now shrouded in darkness but is behind me we've also heard that the f.b.i. will be investigating this all of that will probably take place this morning we are tomorrow morning rather we just saw a los angeles county sheriff's all terrain vehicle being moved into position at the bottom of the hill here so we will get more information from those authorities as they begin going through not only the. crash remains the the wreckage on the
6:03 am
hillside but also looking at the manifest looking at the maintenance history of the sikorsky 76 b. aircraft that crashed examining the records of the pilot and a number of other things a very detailed investigation into an incident of this sort that you mentioned stand the crowds that are gathering at the staples center where the lakers play basketball there's also a small crowd here on the verge unease road and people here that i've spoken to said that they're just heartbroken many said that. they feel as though something has just been ripped from their lives people remembering that as children how they admired kobe bryant and watched him and a woman told me that she's an avid basketball player now because of colby and she wears his number 24 i spoke to another resident here who said something
6:04 am
quite interesting at there in the early morning when the crash occurred she was out walking it was very foggy low clouds ceiling in this part of the los angeles. area she heard a bang and then another loud bang and then she heard a tremendous explosion which she interpreted as being the crash of the helicopter so if her observations are true i of course i would leave it up to the investigators to make sense of that but that would indicate that perhaps something happened to this of course aircraft before it actually impacted with the ground course many tributes coming in from presidents and sports heroes but this is also not just a los angeles phenomenon not just a basketball phenomenon just a us pronominal but you know basketball is one of those popular sports in the world and kobe bryant is was known from beijing to berlin and then beyond and he was i
6:05 am
think credibly charismatic figure that a lot of people like jennifer lived with and so i think that not only people here and in los angeles in california will be mourning but people all around the world who love basketball are feeling some grief in their hearts and i you know rob a remarkable legacy than a tragedy is just i thank you for that real bernal's joining us live there well tributes are pouring in from around the sporting world for a bride saw the looks at one of the crew of the career of one of boston polls right just place. for 2 decades kobe bryant rose above every challenge that came his way in boston was indeed to be the end being one of the game's all time greats he spent his entire career with the los angeles lakers winning the n.b.a. championship in 5 occasions bryant also won to the limpid gold medals for the
6:06 am
united states. is a giant in the sports world it goes far beyond the n.b.a. goal school or beyond basketball he is a world wide i just. in sports. it's hard for us to fly anymore and it doesn't know cobie 'd he was bigger than life he is one of the biggest most well know in the 8 players waltz on after michael jordan he is one of the players that made the n.b.a. into a global sport into going into this 'd next situation. after excel ing on the court at high school in philadelphia bryant opted to skip college and find his 1st n.b.a. contract 8 just 17 at the time of peace deb you in the 19962990 7 season he was the youngest player ever to appear in an n.b.a. game. he more than lived up to that early promise famously teaming up with
6:07 am
shaquille o'neal to win 3 consecutive championships with the lakers in the early 2000. bryant retired in 2016 and his post basketball korea had only just begun. he won an oscar for the animated short film india bucketful. when he scored his final n.b.a. points in 2016 he was on the old time scoring list. only on saturday was his mug cost by a present day great to the bron james bryant's final social media post congratulated james on continuing to move the game forward. something bryant had done throughout his own career. well a sports presenter at the richardson says broad for save many accolades all in and
6:08 am
off the boss go. seemingly destined for greatness from a very young age he apparently started playing basketball at the age of just 3 his father was also a professional player moved over to italy when he was was a child because of his father's career that took him over there so i think that again helped him have a kind of global take on the game the fact he grew up and spoke italian went back home to the states at the age of 17 he signed an n.b.a. contract and when he played his 1st games in the n.b.a. he was the youngest player ever to play in the n.b.a. league east side it's a skip college and not go through that process and when you come into the game at such a young age it can often be so difficult to then actually capitalize on that on that young potential but he did just that he stayed with the l.a. lakers for 2 decades he won 5 n.b.a. championships and also want to impede gold medals and i think those olympic gold medals maybe not as important. back in the states for in terms of taking your
6:09 am
sports that wide global audience really important to how basketball is now perceived all over the world. the u.s. embassy in baghdad has been directly hit by rockets for the 1st time a 3 lead to the compound with one hitting an embassy darley urea 3 weeks ago protesters stormed the embassy days before the u.s. security in general. a suburb in java did bird is the iraqi prime minister has condemned the attacks. so far we have not had any claim of responsibility as there has been no claim of responsibility in the previous attacks it's been this these attacks have intensified when the assassination i sense and in money and many in on this took place in january and there's been multiple volleys which would be to fight in the green zone and aimed at the u.s. embassy come to spend the last time we heard from iraqi security forces was in the doctrine area i traced the launch pads of these rockets which were fired inside the
6:10 am
green zone in iraq the prime minister has commented saying that this is something that you beacons iraq something that brings iraq's reputation to question and the safety of diplomatic missions is the roster sponsibility of it will continue to maintain that we've also heard from the iraqi security forces who have so far ducked and anyone has been wounded in this attack but we are right here in new paltz off some aerial traffic multiple helicopters and other aerial assets in the air after this attack we also heard the sirens going off at the u.s. embassy after this attack took place and these sources have confirmed to us there is something significant to say can place or mark kimmitt is a retired brigadier general of the u.s. army he says it's a significant attack that could lead to retaliate from washington. if it's a large number of american citizens who were killed in there i think it's one level of response of who is
6:11 am
a small number i think it's another level of response but it's clear that after the killing of sort of money in the response that our last side that what many were saying that deterrence had been reestablished with the iranians but if the iranians are backing a proxy that conducted this kind of attack on us as territory to my mind it is clear that deterrence has not been reestablished of the united states would have to send a message perhaps even stronger the next time to make it very clear that the united states is prepared to take actions in response to these kind of attacks on sovereign u.s. territories and american civilians. in the day iraqi security forces fired to guess and live bullets as anti-government protests turned violent in baghdad the crackdown began after influential see a clear withdrew his support for the protesters on saturday dozens were injured in baghdad and the southern city of nasiriya as police tried to keep the city in towns

. former u.s. national security advisor john bolton appears to have undermined president trumps defense he's impeachment trials the new york times has obtained a draft copy of a book written by bolton it says trump told him to tie ukrainian military eye to an investigation into joe biden bolton has said he's willing to testify at the trial but senate republicans resisting attempts to include him now the news prompted this tweet from lee democratic impeachment manager adam schiff he says the president blocked our request for bolton's testimony now we see why bolton directly contradicts the heart of the president's defense if the trial is to be fair sentences must insist that mr bolton be called as a witness and provide his notes and all the documents. matthews is a professor of political science at cypress college he says the president resort to arguments about national security concerns to prevent bolton from testified. so
6:13 am
many presidents have used the national security cauliflowers to actually hide the truth which was not a national security issue in this case on the usenet is not a national security issue if it's what bolton saying is true he needs to be exposed so we can actually clean up our democracy and abide by the rule of law it's all about the rule of law is the president by the law or is he not under the law like everyone else i believe the 2nd is true and this bolton to us will make a big difference i think they should go forward with it i think there's a lot in both this very well could be the smoking gun that will see if we get bolton bolton can actually testify and if the senate will vote to bring him because he wants to be subpoenaed so he can testify but i think there's a good chance if this comes out even more and discuss more in the news as it's being done that the american people will say look we want to have witnesses especially john bolton now that he's such a person who is very close to the center of all this action and we want to know what the evidence is and we can have evidence unless you have witness so i think there's a good chance that a few republicans might bolt change their position and vote with democrats to
6:14 am
require a subpoena or bolton. still ahead of al jazeera a u.s. . target it will be on the ground in misrata. is the 1st time. never forget the police from the remaining survivors of the most notorious. verse of. plus. hello there we've got some quotes about the conditions fine across northeastern areas of the united states under the law states where to see the back of that ice and that snow but we've also been left with. some rather doubt whether to 10 inches

0 here's a reminder of our top stories this hour one of basketball's greatest players kobe bryant has been killed in a helicopter crash in california a former los angeles lakers player was one of 9 people who died he was 41. the us embassy in baghdad has been directly hit by rockets for the 1st time no casualties have been reported 3 weeks ago protesters stormed the embassy days before the u.s. killed iranian general. former u.s. national security adviser john bolton appears to president trump's defense at his impeachment trial in new york times has obtained a copy of his book it says told bolton to prissie ukraine into investigating joe biden. the world health organization is sending its top official to china to figure out how to stop the spread of coronavirus china's government says the number of people killed has risen to 80 with 3000 infections health officials say it can
6:18 am
spread between people before symptoms shows which take up to 14 days let's go live now to hong kong and bring in ivory and brown for the latest and it's moving so quickly adrian isn't that the number of cases increases the number of deaths increases what's china trying to do to contain these veering the latest. this is a crisis really happening in real time the figures the statistics are changing you know by the hour we now know there are 80 confirmed deaths in china and more than 2700 suspected cases now this virus is spreading without symptoms showing that's what is really so concerning i think for medical officials and also you know it could become infectious during the incubation period and we know now know that that incubate period can range from just a few days to perhaps 14 days now the mayor of new hand has also been talking he's
6:19 am
conceded that in those days before the lockdown of almost 5000000 people left that city now as you would know from your own time in china is a key transport hub and you can fly to around 40 international destinations and of course from you can travel by rail to just about any big city in china so this fire has sort of the perfect vectors it's traveling to all corners of the globe right now china continues to do what it can to contain this forest and it's interesting because often china's strategy in times like this is one of opaqueness what we're seeing now is is openness and transparency which i guess is why we need to worry here in hong kong officials say there are now 8 confirmed cases more than 300. confirmed cases about 155 people are in quarantine here in hong kong the government here in hong kong has been turning
6:20 am
a number of holiday camps into quarantine centers they also wanted to use some apartments in a public housing estate that caused a bit of a reaction on sunday evening there were clashes between police and protesters in the family area of the new territories they don't want those people who. into that particular housing estate so the viruses really feeding into the sort of anti mainland sentiment here in hong kong which of course has been festering due to those protests which is still ongoing and a dream people there of course have memories of sars and what we're seeing here is being compared to the beginning of that outbreak you mentioned transparency before at the time there was criticism of china china not being as open and honest as it should have been with the spread of that disease how are people comparing what's happening now to then. well i think there are
6:21 am
similarities but also in some ways things haven't changed that much we know that this virus a move actually started to appear at the end of november but it was only at the end of december on the 31st of december that the authorities in moon had notified the world health organization and it was only last week after president xi jinping said to officials not just to move but across the country i want transparency and honesty people who are not honest will be nailed to the pillar of shame for eternity that guess what suddenly all these statistics and the information started to flow so yes in some ways the default position for you know the government in china is is opaqueness this time they've taken a different strategy but people here still suspect that we're not getting the full story the full picture there is deep skepticism and i think that skepticism comes from the fact that there is still a strong censorship in china during the sars outbreak in 2003
6:22 am
a reporter from china and from hong kong at that time the media actually was relatively relatively more open that it is now so people were getting more transparent in the mission so people aren't necessarily buying what they've been told in the official media right now and i drew thanks for that your brown live from rome. the results suggest italy's right wing leader. has failed to win an important regional election votes are still being counted in the traditionally lift is romona region but projections put salvina lead party several points behind the center left democratic party the former deputy prime minister was hoping to cause an upset and topple the country's governing coalition. is in the city of bologna. addressed the media after polls closed when he gave a quick press conference a couple of hours ago he did acknowledge to some extent that they party and he
