police operation and locked down in Boston tonight. The prime suspect in

:00:17.:00:21.

the Boston bombing and the killing of a police officer has shocked the

:00:21.:00:29.

nation and his family. I say, if you are alive, turn yourself in. And ask

:00:30.:00:37.

for forgiveness. Who are the brothers? The now dead name-mac-bee

:00:37.:00:42.

and the still at large, name-mac. We have been asking ourselves whether

:00:42.:00:44.

it was home-grown or foreign inspired, but the answer may well be

:00:44.:00:54.

both. Also tonight, and an economic boom for Mongolia as they set out to

:00:54.:00:59.

tap their economic world -- economic wealth. Are they about to become one

:00:59.:01:03.

of the wealthiest countries in the world? It is a vast body of copper,

:01:03.:01:13.
:01:13.:01:15.

gold and silver. They say it is the size of the island of Manhattan.

:01:15.:01:20.

Good evening. It has been a day of huge drama in Boston but still the

:01:20.:01:24.

19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has evaded the

:01:24.:01:29.

Lancs -- the ranks of law officers swarming the city. His brother and

:01:29.:01:32.

accomplice died following a fire fight with police. Scattered family

:01:32.:01:37.

members have contributed to a picture of the suspected bombers. An

:01:37.:01:41.

uncle in Maryland has called them losers and called his surviving

:01:41.:01:45.

nephew, a medical student, to give themselves up. An aunt in Toronto

:01:45.:01:49.

said the older brother had recently become a devout Muslim. The father

:01:49.:01:53.

in Dagestan said his sons were set up. This report on the dramatic

:01:53.:01:57.

operation still unfolding. Ladies and gentlemen, back-up,

:01:57.:02:07.
:02:07.:02:08.

back-up. We are being ordered back. A city in lockdown. 1 million people

:02:08.:02:11.

trapped inside a combat zone. We are asking you to stay home, stay

:02:11.:02:18.

indoors. We asking businesses not to open. Move back around the corner.

:02:18.:02:23.

Move now, please. Up to 10,000 officers, heavily armed. In their

:02:23.:02:31.

sights, two suspects, one no dead, one still on the run. It was late

:02:31.:02:36.

last night when the two men finally broke cover. 19-year-old Dzhokhar

:02:37.:02:42.

Tsarnaev, caught on camera in a 711 shopping Cambridge, near the

:02:42.:02:43.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus. He and his

:02:43.:02:50.

brother, Tamerlan, were apparently trying to rob it. Police were

:02:50.:02:54.

alerted to a disturbance. First on the scene, 26 old police officer,

:02:54.:02:58.

Sean Collier. He was shot several times and died in his vehicle. To

:02:58.:03:03.

make their getaway, the two men carjacked at the driver of a

:03:03.:03:07.

Mercedes. Keeping him with him -- with them in the car for half an

:03:07.:03:12.

hour before releasing him unharmed at a gas station in Cambridge. The

:03:12.:03:17.

police gave chase. Following the Mercedes into Watertown. Police say

:03:17.:03:19.

that they were fired at and explosive devices were thrown at

:03:19.:03:26.

them from the car. After midnight, there is more gunfire. More bombs

:03:26.:03:35.

are thrown. Tamerlan Tsarnaev is captured, critically injured. He

:03:35.:03:41.

died later in hospital, while his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, escaped.

:03:41.:03:44.

Our immediate concern is for those people in the neighbourhood up

:03:44.:03:48.

there. We have an active search going on by tactical teams to locate

:03:48.:03:52.

and apprehend this particular individual. He should be considered

:03:52.:03:56.

armed and dangerous. It is a threat to anybody that might -- he is a

:03:57.:04:00.

threat to anybody that might score -- might approach and some use

:04:00.:04:03.

extreme caution and stay in your homes. So they stayed inside and

:04:03.:04:12.

this is what they saw. This is our garaged right now. -- our garage.

:04:12.:04:15.

What the hell? And they were not necessarily safe in their homes.

:04:15.:04:20.

I've heard someone empty -- something enter my room. I've found

:04:20.:04:27.

at my desk a bullet had gone through my wall. It had gone through the

:04:27.:04:31.

calendar and the back of my chair, and whenever my head would have

:04:31.:04:36.

been, the bullet came to rest at the foot of my bed. Quickly, a picture

:04:36.:04:40.

emerged of the brothers. Both ethnic Chechens who arrived in the United

:04:40.:04:46.

States ten years ago. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a boxer. In an

:04:46.:04:48.

interview with Boston University Magazine, he said he aspired to

:04:48.:04:53.

fight for the US Olympic boxing team. Yet he also said that he did

:04:53.:05:01.

not have any American friends. He said I don't understand them. On

:05:01.:05:03.

Russia 's equivalent of Facebook, the younger brother described his

:05:03.:05:09.

worldview as Islam, and asked to identify the main thing in his

:05:09.:05:15.

life, he answered, career and money. What did not become any clear online

:05:15.:05:20.

was what was motivating the two men, a mystery to their father even.

:05:20.:05:24.

TRANSLATION: I have confidence in my children. In their innocence. I do

:05:24.:05:27.

not know what happened and how this came about, only that God Almighty

:05:27.:05:32.

and the person that did it know what really happened. The Almighty will

:05:32.:05:37.

punish them for that. In middle and, an uncle was less forgiving. I say,

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:48.

if you are alive, turn yourself in. And Aske for forgiveness from the

:05:48.:05:58.
:05:58.:05:58.

victims and the injured and from those who are left, ask forgiveness.

:05:59.:06:08.
:06:09.:06:09.

He has brought shame on our family. He has brought shame on the entire

:06:09.:06:13.

Chechen ethnicity. It is now approaching 20 hours since the

:06:13.:06:17.

manhunt began. But still they do not have their man. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

:06:17.:06:21.

remains at large, and many in the city Art, Taoist. -- are

:06:21.:06:28.

traumatised. You do not know what is going on. Something is happening in

:06:28.:06:31.

my community, on my street, but did not know what it was. When I've

:06:31.:06:40.

found out, I cannot talk any more. Tonight, details emerged about the

:06:40.:06:43.

family. An aunt in Toronto claimed that Tamerlan had a Christian wife

:06:43.:06:46.

and a young daughter, that had recently become more devout as a

:06:46.:06:53.

Muslim. Our diplomatic editor has just

:06:53.:06:59.

returned from Boston. How has it come to this? We have one dead prime

:06:59.:07:03.

suspect and the other on the run. An extraordinary end to the trauma at

:07:03.:07:09.

the beginning of the week. What was apparent throughout the week was the

:07:09.:07:11.

incredible pressure the authorities were under to show some signs of

:07:11.:07:18.

regress. Also, we had amateur sleuthing going on, people being put

:07:18.:07:21.

in the frame on Twitter, and none of those images turned out to be these

:07:21.:07:28.

brothers. But there was a stampede to try and out who was responsible.

:07:28.:07:32.

Having done so, they may well have triggered this final Rampage, by

:07:32.:07:37.

indicating to the brothers that their identities would be out there

:07:37.:07:43.

very soon, and that they might as well is -- they might as well start

:07:43.:07:48.

if they wanted a final killing spree. And on the -- and an enviable

:07:48.:07:54.

dilemma. We know that a double amputee told them what he looked

:07:54.:07:57.

like. A description.But to put names to them would have taken

:07:57.:08:02.

longer. Tell me what do you think. Possible radicalisation.

:08:02.:08:07.

Essentially, the boys are of Chechen origin. Both university students but

:08:07.:08:11.

the older brother locked -- dropped out. Both very clever. It is

:08:11.:08:18.

curious. It is Columbine meets jihad. We hear about the realisation

:08:18.:08:23.

of the older brother, Tamerlan, and we have seen the comments that he

:08:23.:08:27.

made in the piece to the newspaper report. He does not understand

:08:27.:08:31.

Americans. Alienation commie dropped out of college. Some of these have

:08:31.:08:33.

more in common with the traditional trajectory of some of these people

:08:33.:08:36.

who have gone in killing sprees in the United States more recently and

:08:36.:08:40.

we know that there was that element of radical Islam playing in his

:08:40.:08:48.

life. And where does this leave President Obama? And his relations

:08:48.:08:52.

with Russia? The authorities in the region of Chechnya have been quick

:08:52.:08:56.

to say it is nothing to do with them. From the point of view of the

:08:56.:08:59.

Kremlin, you would like to say that they knew nothing about this in

:08:59.:09:01.

advance and these people were essentially Americans, having been

:09:01.:09:05.

there for years. Intentionally, it offers an opening. If the US wishes

:09:05.:09:12.

to use it, to get closer to the government of Vladimir Putin. The

:09:12.:09:14.

issue of elaboration of terrorism has been a thing which

:09:14.:09:17.

intermittently has allowed them to minimise differences over the past

:09:17.:09:24.

12 years and emphasise commonality of purpose. For now, thank you. If

:09:24.:09:29.

anything develops, we will come back to you. Daisy Khan is the Executive

:09:29.:09:32.

Director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement which tries to

:09:32.:09:35.

foster good relationships between Muslims and other communities. That

:09:35.:09:39.

Leonard is a Professor at the Kennedy School of Government at

:09:39.:09:42.

Harvard University and joins us from Boston. Residents there are being

:09:42.:09:48.

urged to stay indoors. Professor Leonard, you are right next to

:09:48.:09:54.

Watertown. Tell me, the atmosphere, the mood of the people you have been

:09:54.:10:03.

talking today? It is a very sombre mood. It has been a tough week and

:10:03.:10:09.

it is a tough day today. You should know that things in Boston are not

:10:09.:10:13.

completely out of sorts. It is important to understand that the

:10:13.:10:18.

actual lockdown in Boston is over a very wide area, on a voluntary

:10:18.:10:23.

basis. The reasons for that is to reduce the demand for services from

:10:23.:10:28.

police and to allow them to have freedom of movement. The actual area

:10:28.:10:35.

that is affected is relatively small. I am right on the edge of

:10:35.:10:41.

that area right now. In a sense, you made a stand is today because after

:10:41.:10:48.

we -- it is Patriots' Day today and he went out. -- you went out.

:10:48.:10:54.

Today is a special day in Massachusetts. I live in one of the

:10:54.:11:00.

towns in which the Revolutionary War began. In the early morning, we go

:11:00.:11:06.

out for what we call the dawn salute. It is a special ceremony to

:11:06.:11:08.

celebrate the patriotism of the Minutemen who stood their 200 years

:11:08.:11:13.

ago and thought for the liberties that we now have. Which is ironic.

:11:13.:11:17.

It is odd to talk to you about that since it was against the British.

:11:17.:11:23.

Maybe that was a big mistake. In any case, to do so celebrates patriotism

:11:23.:11:26.

and the fight of liberty. It is ironic because what you were doing

:11:26.:11:33.

celebrated freedom. The freedom that everyone has but they do not feel

:11:33.:11:38.

free today. That is right. We are worried about that issue. In many

:11:38.:11:44.

ways, this is the nightmare scenario. We have been worried about

:11:44.:11:47.

this for a long time. People in counterterrorism and crisis

:11:47.:11:54.

management are worried about the domestic, home-grown terror event.

:11:54.:11:56.

It is particularly dangerous because it is particularly difficult to

:11:56.:12:01.

prevent. We are a free and open society and we want to have open

:12:01.:12:05.

access. We want people to be able to come and go. The worry is that

:12:05.:12:10.

people who are illegally here and have all the rights that everyone

:12:10.:12:15.

else has will develop radicalisation and will become, for some reason or

:12:15.:12:19.

other, motivated and develop the intention to cause harm. In a free

:12:19.:12:25.

society, they will be able to find the means to do that for a

:12:25.:12:31.

relatively small-scale event, which is what this was. Let me put this to

:12:31.:12:37.

Daisy Khan. Do you feel that? of all, we are devastated by this

:12:37.:12:44.

event. And the loss of life. Here was a beautiful event where all of

:12:44.:12:51.

humanity came together to celebrate human spirit, and it ends up in a

:12:51.:12:59.

terrible tragedy. Do you think it will have a wider impact on the

:12:59.:13:03.

general Muslim community in America? It has already had an impact.

:13:03.:13:08.

Although the event happened in Boston, we got our share of hateful

:13:08.:13:13.

calls saying, what are you doing about it? There is a backlash but I

:13:13.:13:19.

have to say that our law enforcement and federal agencies have exercised

:13:19.:13:26.

a lot of restraint in the message. I think the general public, although

:13:26.:13:31.

fearful of what might come in the future, the messaging is very

:13:31.:13:36.

tempered. That has had a positive effect on the community because we

:13:36.:13:41.

do not need -- we do not use terms like Islamists. They have not use

:13:41.:13:47.

terms like jihad S. We have been dealing with the actions of

:13:47.:13:54.

terrorists. This is the complaint. Of course, it must be disturbing to

:13:54.:13:59.

talk about these boys, American boys at University, ten years away from

:13:59.:14:04.

Chechnya. Although with strong links. But they were following, on

:14:04.:14:11.

YouTube, it radical preacher who preaches some pretty awful things.

:14:12.:14:18.

Do you go on -- do you go along with the idea that there might have been

:14:18.:14:20.

some radicalisation relatively recently? Is that possible?

:14:20.:14:26.

course, this is the action, not the action of a devout Muslim, but of a

:14:26.:14:31.

twisted psyche. How it got twisted as anybody's guess, but Muslims are

:14:31.:14:38.

very concerned about these radical websites that have grown from 200 to

:14:38.:14:41.

2000 now. We have asked the government to shut them down or

:14:41.:14:47.

tweak them. -- treat them like training grounds. Muslims who wants

:14:47.:14:52.

to counter this are not allowed to go into these websites, so we want

:14:52.:14:58.

to do our share of eliminating terrorists from our community, but

:14:58.:15:05.

we're not allowed to do the job, and How much monitoring is going on do

:15:05.:15:12.

you think? I completely agree with Daisy Khan about this issue. It's

:15:12.:15:15.

really important not to think of this as being Islamic in any way.

:15:15.:15:18.

We don't, first of all, we don't know what the motivations of these

:15:18.:15:22.

people were yets. We don't know enough about who they were. We have

:15:22.:15:25.

to be very careful not to be so curious about this specific ef vent

:15:25.:15:30.

that we assume that all events will be like this. Timothy McHave a was

:15:30.:15:37.

a Christian. He killed -- McVeigh was a Christian and he killed

:15:37.:15:44.

people in Oklahoma City 15 years ago. It's how you deal with

:15:44.:15:48.

radicalism. You deal with it by trying to understand where it's

:15:48.:15:53.

happening and try to prevent it, try to see people who are becoming

:15:53.:15:56.

radical aislesed and see them as individuals not as members of a

:15:56.:16:00.

larger group. The other thing you have to realise is that in a free

:16:01.:16:05.

excite society we want to have open access. We want to continue to have

:16:05.:16:08.

events like marathons. Marathons are particularly difficult to

:16:08.:16:13.

defend. I was in Doha a month ago and talked specifically about this

:16:13.:16:16.

kind of scenario. Marathon which gathers a lot of people, is a great

:16:16.:16:22.

celebration, has a high density of people, has a 55-mile perimeter

:16:22.:16:26.

that's impossible to police all of that all of the time. We are going

:16:26.:16:29.

to have, continue to have vulnerable events. Part of our

:16:29.:16:31.

strategy has to be to look for the individuals who are becoming

:16:31.:16:35.

radicalised and treat them as individuals and to cope with them

:16:35.:16:38.

and try to prevent. But the other side of it is we have to be

:16:38.:16:43.

prepared to take a certain level of risk in our ordinary lives because

:16:43.:16:49.

we don't want to be in lockdown in the way we are today all the time.

:16:49.:16:52.

That means that we have to borrow from your British traditions

:16:52.:16:56.

actually of keeping calm and carrying on, as you did during the

:16:56.:16:58.

Battle of Britain and during the IRA bombings. Thank you both very

:16:58.:17:03.

much. I'm sorry for the delay on the line from Boston. Thank you.

:17:03.:17:07.

A deal between the Government of Mongolia and the mining giant Rio

:17:07.:17:10.

Tinto could transform a country from one of the poorest to one of

:17:10.:17:14.

the richest per Capita in the world. Mongolia, once thought to be cursed

:17:15.:17:19.

by being sandwiched between Russia and China is now in a perfect

:17:19.:17:25.

position to exploit its untapped mineral wealth. Gold, copper,

:17:25.:17:32.

silver, tungsten and the desert has it all. One it's full little

:17:32.:17:35.

operational, it will account for a third of the country's GDP, but a

:17:35.:17:40.

disagreement between the company an the Mongolian government over the

:17:40.:17:47.

mining revenues threatens the operation.

:17:47.:17:51.

For millennia, the only people who have managed to eek a living from

:17:51.:18:01.
:18:01.:18:01.

the Gobi Desert are nomadic camel herders. Not any more. Soon the

:18:02.:18:06.

Gobi could be generating a substantial income for every single

:18:06.:18:14.

Mongolian thanks to this. It's a new copper mine rising up from the

:18:14.:18:19.

delz ert scrub. It's causing controversy across the country and

:18:19.:18:27.

not just because of the scale of the operation. This is just the

:18:27.:18:32.

beginning. Underneath me is one of the largest untapped mineral

:18:32.:18:39.

reserves in the world. It's a vast body of copper, gold, silver. They

:18:39.:18:49.
:18:49.:18:49.

say it is the size of the island of Manhattan. The Anglo-Australian

:18:49.:18:54.

mining giant Rio Tinto has spent �4 billion on the mine so far and

:18:54.:19:01.

expects to spend a few billion more to get this place fully operational.

:19:01.:19:11.
:19:11.:19:12.

We have... This is a former yak herder who is turned geophys sifts.

:19:12.:19:16.

He's now vice-president of the mine. He was part of the team that first

:19:16.:19:19.

discovered the vast deposit. It was very exciting. It became more and

:19:19.:19:25.

more bigger and bigger. We're talking about 30 million tons of

:19:25.:19:30.

copper and more than a thousand ton gold. The revenue figures are

:19:30.:19:34.

pretty striking too. The mine is expected to generate more than �5

:19:35.:19:41.

billion a year every year for the next 40 or 50 years. One third of

:19:41.:19:46.

the GDP will be from this mine. Hold on a second, one third of the

:19:46.:19:52.

entire country's GDP? Yeah.From this one, single mine? But these

:19:53.:19:58.

are early days. Oyu Tolgoi produced its first copper, this modest mound

:19:58.:20:05.

of powder, during my visit earlier this year. The prospect of the

:20:05.:20:10.

profits from this place are already helping power and extraordinary

:20:10.:20:14.

economic boom in what was, until recently, one of the poorest

:20:14.:20:19.

countries in the worl. -- world. They've taken down the Statue of

:20:19.:20:24.

Lenin that used to stand here. For 70 years Mongolia was a rock solid

:20:24.:20:29.

sal lite of the Soviet Union and the Communist Party that used to

:20:29.:20:32.

run it was based right here. If you want to see how this country is

:20:32.:20:37.

changing, just take a look at its new neighbour.

:20:37.:20:44.

A mall packed with the world's most exclusive and expensive brand names.

:20:44.:20:48.

Just across the square is other evidence that the Mongolian boom is

:20:48.:20:56.

not all it seems. They are off. Trading has opened on the Mongolian

:20:56.:21:02.

Stock Exchange, but this place is not exactly Wall Street. The

:21:02.:21:06.

Mongolian Stock Exchange is supposed to be driving the nation's

:21:06.:21:10.

new capitalist economy. It has grown rapidly, but it is still one

:21:10.:21:16.

of the smallest exchanges in the worldment -- world. This stock

:21:16.:21:20.

market thing is quite a new thing in the country, but so far, there's

:21:20.:21:25.

been only exploration, construction and development projects. There

:21:25.:21:29.

hasn't been yet any production or mining started yet. With the start

:21:29.:21:32.

of mining, with the start of production of all those, the real

:21:32.:21:42.
:21:42.:21:43.

boom will take place. But that boom is desperately needed because of

:21:43.:21:49.

Most Monday goalians would disagree with you. They'd say they -- most

Mongolians would disagree with you. They want the things the resources

can bring. People in the Ger I'm from the Ger district. You are?

:25:15.:25:21.

Yes. It's my hood. I'm from the Ger district. That may be so, but the

:25:21.:25:26.

fact is a third of Mongolian families still live below the

:25:26.:25:32.

poverty line. The shanty towns have no sanitation, no formal

:25:32.:25:41.

electricity grid and few roads, other than dirt tracks. Just before

:25:41.:25:46.

the general election last year, politicians bowed to the pressure

Mongolia's biggest mine in its sites. It is chilli today, minus 27.

This wedding cake of a building is the Mongolian Parliament and

:27:03.:27:07.

Presidential Palace and the current government looks set to bow to the

:27:07.:27:11.

temptation to spend the profits of Mongolia's mineral wealth today.

:27:11.:27:16.

It's written a couple of hundred million dollars of extra income

:27:16.:27:20.

from Oyu Tolgoi into this year's budget, income that depends on a

:27:20.:27:25.

renegotiation of the contract with Rio Tinto, a renegotiation that

hasn't taken place. Where does the new Mongolian

:27:35.:27:41.

going to negotiate that. And our government doing that. Is that a

:27:41.:27:45.

renegotiation of the contract? never said that from our government

:27:46.:27:52.

and from myself, you know, we never say that re-open or renegotiate.

:27:52.:27:57.

You say you want hundreds of millions of dollars more from Rio

:27:57.:28:03.

Tinto. That say change, isn't it? No, no, no. That's not changing the

:28:03.:28:06.

contract. Of course viewed from Rio Tinto's London headquarters the

:28:06.:28:10.

perspective is very different. a good project. It's good for

:28:10.:28:17.

Mongolia. It's good for Rio Tinto. What I need to ensure is that our

:28:17.:28:21.

shareholders are protected. Certainly we're in discussions with

:28:21.:28:26.

the government of Mongolia, but importantly, they need to recognise

:28:26.:28:32.

that this is a major project. It will be 30% of the country's GDP.

:28:32.:28:36.

Speaking on behalf of Rio Tinto, and in fact commenting on behalf of

:28:36.:28:41.

other people investing in Mongolia or potentially investing, certainty

there a dainker that Mongolia gets a reputation for being -- danger

:28:58.:29:02.

that Mongolia gets a reputation for being unreliable? You know Mongolia

:29:02.:29:12.
:29:12.:29:29.

is not a lawless country. Change Why are you asking the government

:29:29.:29:36.

not to address those issues? should be no surprise that

:29:37.:29:43.

Mongolians are demanding a proper account of their giant new mine.

:29:43.:29:48.

But this is a dangerous game. Mongolia needs partners like Rio

:29:48.:29:51.

Tinto if it's to exploit its mineral wealth and if it starts to

:29:51.:29:55.

break contracts and demand extra cash, it may find the big mining

:29:55.:30:05.
:30:05.:30:33.

The danger is if the government misjudges its hand, the Mongolian

mineral boom could disappear back into the desert sands.
