A video was held at the naval air station Pensacola today for the three people shot and killed when a Saudi military pilot opened fire at the base. Sheriff deputies then shot and killed the gunman. Roger White Housex was at the ceremony. He says he will always remember the victims.
We're gonna keep it in our minds. We're gonna keep it in our hands and keep in our hearts. We never forget this moment and it doesn't impact it.
Authorities say the shooter was one of about 200 foreign nationals getting training at the base. It's part of a program for US allies who buy US military air craft. Defence secretary Mark Esper says despite news that the gunman appears to have opposed criticism of US warsome possibly quoted Osama bin Laden. He's prepared to call the attack terrorism just yet.

Strikes and periodic protests against president Emmanuel Macron's policies are disrupting weekend travel around France. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports there is gridlock in Paris.
With little public transport running, the streets are clogged with cars and taxis, bikes and scooters. But the congestion doesn't seem to have dumped holiday spirits. Parisians and tourists are out to join the decorations and lights. The strike is set to end Tuesday but unions say they will start again if Macron doesn't abandon his plans to change the country's pension system.
NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reporting from Paris.
Denmark has passed its first ever climate action legislation, pledging to become carbon neutral country by the year 2050. Teri Schultz reports this comes as UN climate talks contine in Madrid and the European gears up for a climate center summit.
On the way to their goal of reaching carbon neutrality, Denish lawmakers voted to reduce the country's CO2 out put by 2/3 by the year 2030 measured by 1990 levels. They will be a 2025 target set to make sure things are around the red check and annual reviews were authorities must report what they are doing to reach the targets. While ambitious Denmark is not a leader among its Nordic neighbors. Sweden has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2045, Finland by 2035 and Norway by 2030. European Union leaders will meet in Brussel Thursday where they'll consider whether to adopt an EU wide commitment to have met zero emissions like Denmark by 2050. The Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland have not yet come on board. For NPR News, I'm Teri Schultz in Brussel.
