a darrelle train in eastern taiwan and dozens of passengers have been confirmed dead i'm german ash with sports that major league baseball's all star game will be moved from atlanta in response to voting restrictions in georgia and it's being reported that a major test event for the tokyo it impacts the diving world cup has been canceled because of $1000.00 safety concerns. hello welcome to the news hour we begin of course in the u.s. where the capital the hearts of american democracy was once again thrown into lockdown on friday after a man rammed his car into a barricade killing at least one person the car drove into 2 police officers who were near the barricade one of them has died and the alva is still being treated in hospital offices on the scene shot at the suspect when he left the car he has since
12:02 am
died of his injuries and that suspect exit the vehicle with a knife in hand. our officers then engage that suspect he did not respond to verbal commands the suspect did start lunging toward us capitol police officers at which time u.s. capitol police officers fired upon the suspect at this time the suspect has been pronounced deceased 2 so u.s. capitol police officers were transported to 2 different hospitals and it is wood a very very heavy heart that i announce one of our officers has succumbed to his injuries. and mike hanna
12:03 am
is at the capitol building and joins us now and we've been waiting for reaction from president joe biden who has said he has a heartbroken to have learned of this attack and the death of that one police officer also says he's been receiving ongoing briefings from the homeland security adviser and i suppose really attention now turns to security measures around the capitol and the investigation itself. whether didio simplistic notion will underway obviously there are still investigators on the actual see the event about 100 meters up the road behind me here you heard there reaction from president biden is going to be counted by his homeland secretary expressing his condolences for the death of that officer now the names of that did have been released to the did capitol police officer was william evans he was a 18 year old veteran of the capitol police now the driver of the car who was
12:04 am
subsequently shot there's no word cream he isn't a 25 year old from say the investigators in the motive no clarity whatsoever this is obviously a point of ongoing investigation but a couple police making it very clear that they believe that this was a one off incident he acted. as they boarded no sign of the terrorist connection is another statement from the capitol police but you mentioned the security will perhaps ironic that it's only in the last week that the added security had been taken down from around the capital much of it which had been put in generally because there had been much higher fencing all around the capitol complex this has been taken down in the past week although a lot of the initial security things have been left in place like that black fence behind me there at. you see those concrete blogs as well at the bottom of the fence
12:05 am
so the security has to be will the physical security but as you can see with the speed of reaction to today's events very much still on high alert around the capitol. all right thank you very much for now mike hanna with the latest there in washington and brian has also been following the story for us co-director of the center for emergency management and homeland security arizona state university joins me live now from phoenix and of course investigators will be tell us more about what they're focusing in focusing on now the priority presumably is to look at motivations for this attack and whether there might be any link to the breech of the capitol less than 3 months ago on january 6th. yeah i think i think that's a critical question to be answered in what will know hopefully we'll know more. as
12:06 am
soon as possible but really there are a couple of couple of key alternatives one this could be just a case of a person who's troubled mental health issues or the person could be individual identified could have been radicalized in some way he could be associated with. conspiracy theory. conspiracy theorists who has a scheme which is kind of reached in that queue an acute crisis in the usa at the moment or or connected to some other domestic violence extremist group. i would note that. lone wolf attacks or single individual attacks are consistent with what the u.s. department of homeland security in its most recent threat assessment from 6 months ago. those types of attacks that we've seen in. other locations
12:07 am
such as such as london. those kind of lone wolf attacks are consistent with. the methods and tactics of violent extremist groups so obviously we can't we can't know at this at this point but. if if this individual was connected to some sort of extremist organization and this kind of this kind of uncoordinated individual attack would be consistent with threat and risk that's been identified by the u.s. department of homeland security how difficult is it to identify something like that because you know 1st of all i guess radicalization and mental health issues not necessarily exclusive that you know one cannot be more vulnerable to the on the but also just the nature of the way this is happening it's very fluid it's decentralized i mean even with the attack on january 6th or a number of different groups involved they're still trying to work out what's
12:08 am
happening that what precisely who was involved and how it how it started. you're correct you can't you can't though those those are not separate possibilities they can be related in fact somebody who might be troubled is potentially more susceptible to those kind of messages and radicalization i mean i think there are different different categories of individuals that become radicalized but. in terms of your question how difficult it is to anticipate that law enforcement. generally does a pretty effective job it at trying to anticipate these things but of course we balance have to balance. free speech rights and people have the liberty to. have unpopular or unsound views a the world. what i meant what i meant was how difficult is it to uncover
12:09 am
evidence of a radicalization given the decentralized nature of those conversations that are often happening that difficult to track the happening online and then even online it's hard to know whether someone is just. you know it whether that just sort of sounding off all oh there that something is more serious happening yet it's a real challenge because as you said you have to sort out people make public comments and they're not particularly serious and some are and so. for example the january 6 insurrection attack on the capital much of that was done in open view and that's one of the criticisms of how that how the federal government compared for that particular incident. but at the same time a number of these organizations. in gaijin secure communications or some at least some individuals with better training try to engage in secure communications so
12:10 am
it's it's a challenge and you're always balancing free speech rights versus the ability of law enforcement to track. individuals and political speech thank you very much brian for joining us co-director of the center for my agency management and homeland security that arizona state university appreciate it thanks thanks. and watching the news hour live from london still ahead the disturbing footage that appears to show a massacre in ethiopia take grey region. we also look at another deadly fire breaking out at a camp housing thousands of refugees. and then they transport india's cricket legend sachin tendulkar was hospitalized a week after contract in corona virus. a
12:11 am
senior police officer took the witness stand on friday on the 5th day of the trial of derek chauvin richard zimmerman told the court that show vince decision to kneel on george floyd's neck was an act of deadly force chauvinist charged with killing floyd by kneeling on his neck off to arresting him his death sparked a massive backlash across the globe with cries for america to tackle racial injustice and police brutality zimmerman says show vns use of force was totally unnecessary in all the years you've been working for the minneapolis police department. been trained to the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back proposition no i haven't. is that if that were done would that be considered force absolutely what level of force might that be. that would be the top tier the deadly force while. because of. the fact.
12:12 am
if you're on a person's know the can kill. is following the trial for us in minneapolis and that was richard zimmerman speaking there the longest serving police officer in the minneapolis police department saying that he was never trained to kneel on anybody's neck just how significant was this testimony today. incredibly significant because as you've pointed out he's a 40 year veteran of the minneapolis police department he's a homicide detective and beyond that he is probably by all accounts one of the more well respected officers if not the most well respected member of the minneapolis police department not only within the department but in the wider minneapolis community as well very well known so his testimony was just devastating for the
12:13 am
defense because he basically said as you heard there that the actions taken by derek show friend were totally unnecessary and potentially acts that are not in the in the books where they train officers to do that in fact he said you should in his testimony said that. the only time you should keep a suspect face down in the prone position on the ground is until that suspect has been secured and their hands have been handcuffed behind them and in the case of george floyd clearly he was on the ground very secured and did have handcuffs the entire 9 minutes and 29 seconds that show friends knee was in for its neck so it's devastating testimony there really kept one very dramatic long 1st week of this trial. thank you thank you allison in
12:14 am
minneapolis well mary frances berry is a professor of american thought and history at university of pennsylvania she's also the former chair of the u.s. commission on civil rights she joins me by skype from your own ends. as you know experts have spoken about the legal hurdles which stand in the way of cases like this one what is your feeling off to richard simmons testimony today does it make a conviction more likely. i'll answer you but i 1st need to tell you that there is a connection between what happened at the capitol and what is going on there in the show trial and what is going on in the united states generally in terms of people who want policeman for and who are concerned about police being too overbearing all those things are connected and the 1st and who who was who was the assailant there
12:15 am
at the capitol and who's now dead we can't question him he may have just been part of the people who have been arguing for weeks now that they want the barriers and barricades taken down at the capital unfortunately when they took them down look what happened and that means that move more likely to get them put back up and would more or less less likely to get to least reform around the country the connection to the showmen case is that the outcome of that case whether he is convicted and whether is a quick will tell us a lot about whether the trend toward policeman form continues whether it's stifled altogether or whatever happens there now the defense today and looking at the trial the defense had a fairly good day today because despite her mum's testimony they lawyers for the defendant made several good points of arguing that all your and all foci and you
12:16 am
don't know the circumstances and you've been around for 40 years or whatever it is that's not help the least do it today and you were not on the scene and you weren't there what he was trying to do was to set the stage for the defense argument which will come later and that in fact trainers are young people who are working on staff who will be called to testify those people from minneapolis and from other police departments this is what has happened and other police cases will testify that the police officer on the ground is the one who is best able to tell whether or not they should. it's certain action at all these higher ups been around a long time to really know that's what the defense is trying to do and all the defense wants and needs is to have at least one person. one person bite so that kind of argument so that they can come up with a hung jury or a mistrial or something because likely to get a certain level it sounds like from is saying we have to be cautious with how much
12:17 am
we read into this case when i when has it it's it's rod for a police officer to face criminal charges for misconduct in the u.s. and even if that even if there were a conviction in this case it's not going to stop some offices from abusing their power and also we have lots of instances of police killing unarmed people but very few instances of them even being charged and brought into court and most of the time when they are they are couldn't and most of the time the argument for acquittal is exactly what the defense attorney was making today that the man on the ground or the woman on the ground he was just men and women had it women do this from a growl know what's going on and has certain all these factors to take into account while he's there actively trying to deal with the situation and that is to divert our attention from the fact that lowell floyd was on the ground wasn't doing anything which is resistant that the crowd that they keep talking about was their
12:18 am
defense keeps him in a crowd was no more than if you look at the video and listen to the witnesses 12 people maybe 15 people and as lieutenant zimmerman said they weren't doing anything to attack anyone so we have to keep our as our what the shopman was doing and the situation that floyd was in and not be distracted by all of these other arguments but we don't know whether anybody on the jury will inspect false one. all right thank you very much for joining us mary frances berry thank you. at least 54 people have died in taiwan's worst rail disaster on man truck rolled on to the track just as a train was approaching a tunnel in the east of the island ili 500 people wrong or did many survivors had to climb out of the wreckage the accident happened at the start of the ching main

12:20 am
reportedly standing in line for the journey here or i could feel the emergency brake was put on and the train just shook and then stopped it and i didn't divulge the names unsentimental and we're fine but some of the passengers in the compartment were injured. inside the narrow tunnel emergency workers struggled to reach the enjoy there was no other way for us to get out so we had to climb to the top of the train and then climb down i was sitting on the aisle side and i was thrown to the floor. a spokesman for the rail network says the accident was caused by one of its construction trucks sliding from a work site above the track the fire department later released pictures of what appeared to be the wreckage of the truck beside the d. rail train this is taiwan's worst of a train accident and it's believed many of the dead and injured were heading home

12:22 am
would return to its commitments but he also said that they will not be a face to face meeting between iran and the united states he said that it was unnecessary now one of the chief negotiators for iran abbas iraq to know what he has said is that there won't be any direct in direct talks between the united states and iran however if the europeans want to go and speak to the united states well that's a matter for them now what he's essentially saying is that iran will not acknowledge any form of direct or direct or indirect talks with the united states but those are possibly take place because the europeans will be talking to the united states now the reason he said that is because of the domestic politics inside the country nothing has affected that to more than the nuclear deal and those sanctions every day life is affected the banking sector oil sector the economy has suffered but iran's iran's position still remains the same they don't want to step by step process to this they want all the sanctions lifted that were imposed by former president donald trump and then iran will start returning to its commitments in

12:25 am
much of the country's resources. the prime minister the promise is going to be fulfilled but the kind of allegations we've been hearing that from day one we're just beginning to see actual video evidence of the allegations that have been made by the people of the growth from from last year from end of last year what struck me the most. people i've been we've been hearing from day one that people have been dying. and the issue of famine that that's coming up. has been limited resources and we've been hearing high numbers of people that have been dying in that region we just haven't been able to see their faces until now and the videos are showing us that there are people dying and we're beginning to see the faces behind the numbers and that's why it's having on such a strong impact just with the new york and many many countries that have interest in helping ethiopia forward whether to bangladesh now at least 3 rangar refugees

totally on necessary riches zimmerman said floyd was no longer a serious threat when he was handcuffed this is the 1st week of the trial is now ended of course it continues next week and at least $54.00 people have died in taiwan's worst rail disaster an unmanned truck rolled on to the track just as the train was approaching a tunnel in the east of the island nearly 500 people on board. now the netherlands is suspending the use of the astra zeneca covert 1000 vaccine for people under the age of 60 following the death of a woman who received a job around 10000 scheduled appointments have now been canceled the woman was one of 5 people who suffered blood clots between 7 and 10 days after vaccination it comes a day off to germany halted the use of the vaccine for people under the age of 60. well elsewhere india has reported more than 80000 new coven 1000 cases this is the highest number in more than 6 months nearly every state is being hit hard by
12:33 am
a new surge in the government is speeding up vaccinations but some of india's poorest people aren't yet eligible for the jobs despite putting themselves at risk every day india correspondent elizabeth purana reports now from the capital new delhi. from a distance these mounds in india cities could be mistaken for small hills but they amount of waste and rummaging through them with their bare hands of thousands of waste pickers they make a mega living collecting recyclable materials and selling them to scrap dealers. but while sanitation workers employed by the government or private companies are among the 1st to be eligible for co the 19 vaccines waste because aren't m.d.m. cigar. the new delhi municipal council workers are getting vaccinated police are getting vaccinated then are we not human we pick up trash from your homes if one of us fall sick then we probably will infect 10 others. begun connex rubbish from
12:34 am
$300.00 homes but can't afford the $3.00 for each dose of clove of mine tin vaccine she lives with her family in a hot made from scrap cardboard there among around $2000000.00 informal waste workers in india. is that our minds we can't earn like we used to before our incomes have been hit when we're finding it so difficult to get by each day how can we afford vaccines the war of the war that hundreds of years with the help of environmental group chintan has started an online petition asking the government to vaccinate waste workers like her chintan calls of the country's silent environmentalist they are highly organized they are highly skewed they big up to 70 to 80 get degrees of rees so you can imagine that richard of born into a land of pick up to collect the signet get to say the reason so this is extremely
12:35 am
important so is that the way the city. chintan says that each year people like eliminate 900000 tonnes of carbon dioxide by diverting waste away from landfills how many. is berthel source of what i feel really sad that the government doesn't care about us. as india of widens the numbers of those eligible for co the 19 vaccines waste workers are asking to be among them elizabeth brand of al-jazeera new daddy. now demands for covert $1000.00 vaccines of put a spotlight on india which is often called the world's pharmacy it's also home to the globe's largest vaccine makers the serum institute which is supplying astra zeneca doses to 64 countries through the u.n. is kovacs program but the company says up to 90000000 of those doses could be delayed sources have told told the reuters news agency that india has caused exports so it can vaccinate its own people and that's worried africa countries in
12:36 am
africa which want to inoculate up to 35 percent of their population by the end of the year a top health official says that target might now might not happen now it's just and it's not just poor countries the e.u. is reportedly asked for 10000000 astra zeneca doses from the serum institute and the u.k. has asked for 5000000 doses it's already ordered as well but some argue that blaming india is unfair the country has exported 64000000 doses which is higher than the 62000000 administered at home and india needs to speed up vaccinations because cases of increased sixfold in the past 2 months in a new variant with a double mutation might be driving up infection so joining us now via skype from the united states is krishna or de or kumar he is associate director for innovation at the global health and i just want to pick up on the point we're making there about the rate of infection because it seemed as though for a few months the the infections were receding and now suddenly since february
12:37 am
very rising faster than ever before could could this year end up being worse than last year if india. that's exactly right for many reasons some of which we had a good idea about and some we didn't we saw really after the 1st wave that peaked in september several months where the rates were going down and they're picking back up quite significantly and concerning we now so the coming months i think are really a dangerous time for india and we're seeing that happening in other parts of the world as well and that's increased the urgency for india to vaccinate its own population their program was very sluggish to start with but at the same time they are facing pressure to essentially export vaccine doses to to the kovacs program it's not just kovacs it sets other countries outside of that scheme as well it is india really has become though workhorse of manufacturing for vaccines
12:38 am
largely through the serum institute of india kodak's facility that you mentioned is expecting to reach 2000000000 doses it through that kovacs mechanism this year and fully half of that more than a 1000000000 doses would come from the serum institute in india of both the astra zeneca as well as novak's and trying to balance that against the needs domestically with a population of 1300000000 and trying to make doses available to other countries around the world puts india and certainly institute in a very difficult position to try to balance all of those needs. i mean how disastrous could this be for africa because we're talking about some of the world's poorest countries they want to vaccinate countries in africa want to vaccinate 35 percent of that population by the end of the ad that's clearly not going to happen if astra zeneca doses being produced by the serum is to cheat at being essentially
12:39 am
taken over by the indian government. yes we absolutely have to think about other contingencies so we need to see more back scenes actually become available with less reliance in what's a really concentrated market right now so some of the good news is that we're starting to see increases in manufacturing capacity of some of the m r n a platform vaccine so with pfizer and by on tech now say saying they can get to 2500000000 doses this year hopefully that opens up the possibility of a significant uptick through kovacs where right now it's a fairly small commitment of 40000000 doses that could potentially increase significantly and trying to understand how we can ramp up manufacturing capacity in other low and middle income countries is also going to be important in the coming months. what are your thoughts on the the indian government's involvement in vaccine shipments are you concerned about the nature of that involvement. i think
12:40 am
we're seeing this similarly to what's happening in other countries as well so we saw export restrictions being put in place in the e.u. trying to prevent the export of private goods that we saw the use of the defense production act in the u.s. giving presidents to domestic needs over output and export of private goods so indian government here is really following the lead of several high income countries and regions in influencing what happens in terms of exports or potential exports from private sector companies so unfortunately we're starting to see more of this example of that see nationalism which doesn't help anybody all right thank you for joining us and sharing your thoughts on this krishna day a coma thank you. well and to india protests have broken out in the disputed region of kashmir after 3 suspected rebels were killed in
12:41 am
