create confusion to create smoke and mirrors the shocking truth about how the climate debate has been systematically subverted the oil industry was a main bankroller for opposition to climate action the campaign against the climate do you think that's a bad thing more suited it was force a good thing absolutely coming soon on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. hello i'm barbara sara this is the al-jazeera news hour live from london thank you for joining us coming up in the next 60 minutes both washington and tehran say in direct talks to revive the iran nuclear deal or constructive but there are still no plans to meet face to face. on day 7 of the derrick show and trial police
12:01 am
experts are questioned about the use of force to subdue subjects suspects france transforms its national sports stadium into a vaccine center with a plan to inoculate more than 2000000 people this week. and the report that's found rising sea temperatures are forcing some editorial species to search for cool local troops. iran and the u.s. have had their 1st in direct talks to try to breathe life back into the 2015 nuclear deal they go see as his did not gather in the same room and while there are still no plans for face to face meetings both tehran and washington have made positive noises about what was achieved in vienna on tuesday well the talks so european officials relaying messages between iranian and u.s.
12:02 am
officials president biden promised to return to the agreement during his campaign after his country pulled out to under donald trump 2 further meetings are due to be held by experts from both sides to the scotts how to lift sanctions and for iran to return to full compliance with the accord of diplomatic editor james phases at the u.n. and says there are reasons to expect progress. well certainly this is just the start of a process but i do think what has happened in the last few hours has gone about as well as it could have done now that's not because there was any sort of breakthrough and we're a long way away from that it's because there wasn't a breakdown and this is this process is going to continue remember what we've got to try and do for both sides is get back to the 2015 iran nuclear deal that's the aim of all this but it has seriously unraveled since 2015 1st with president trump
12:03 am
pulling out and piling on sanctions against iran and then with iran not complying anymore after a year with that deal increasing its enrichment bringing in advanced centrifuges so what they decided to do now after this initial meeting of indirect talks you actually had iran and most of the international community in $15.00 star hotel the grand hotel and the u.s. in another hotel the imperial hotel another 5 star hotel on the opposite side of the road with an e.u. representing representative shuttling back and forth what they've decided now is the initial plan was to divide the subjects into 2 what iran needs to do what the u.s. has to do so one of the lists is related to sanctions the other is related to iran's nuclear program and they're now going to go to a lower level expert level to try and go through each of those with 2 working groups in great detail. said bacon is in tehran then says sanctions remain
12:04 am
a key issue there. so for iran are sticking to their guns they want all sanctions lifted and very fired by the country before they even begin to reverse any measures taken in the nuclear program they've also ruled out suspending the 20 percent uranium enrichment in exchange for $1000000000.00 of iranian money blocked outside the country because of u.s. sanctions iranian negotiators have said talks in vienna a constructive and a step in the right direction but there's still a long way to go iran feels it has suffered greatly under sanctions imposed by former us president donald trump sanctions that are still in place under joe biden's administration meanwhile here in iran the parliament is dominated by lawmakers who are never for the deal in the 1st place the government here would like to salvage the deal before they leave office later this year and come through on their promise of getting u.s. sanctions lifted. meanwhile an iranian ship has been reportedly been attacked with a mine in the red sea in the latest incident involving an iranian vessel it's said
12:05 am
to have been attacked off the coast a very tray island was affiliated with iran's revolutionary guards the iranian news agency that has them says it was supporting iranian commandos a scorching commercial vessels a u.s. military spokesperson says it was not involved. the use of force and how police officers should try to deescalate crisis situations has been the focus of the 7th day of evidence in the trial of former minneapolis police officer there rick chauvet he's accused of the murder of george floyd a black man whose death last may sparked months of protests demanding racial equality and then end to police brutality on tuesday expert witnesses outlined to the forces procedures including the fact that all minneapolis police officers were
12:06 am
trained in dealing with a crisis show vince defense team has previously argued that the circumstances surrounding floyd's death were extraordinary and stressful but the prosecution alleges a show in the not follow official guidelines for the use of force is this impeded trained neck restraint notes or. is there are. not too many neck restraint or. this is. authorized restraint technique. on the neck would be something that does happen he supports that is an authoress and under what circumstances would that thrives how one can you do that i don't know there's a ton brand of would depend on the circumstance of the time which would include but there is this issue getting involved. and so if there was say for example
12:07 am
the subject was under control and handcuffed would this be authorized i would say no. well john hendren is live for us in minneapolis outside court where we should say at the trial has beena suspended for at that they will start again tomorrow of a lot of what we heard today was quite technical but it really all seemed to focus on the main issue really the use of force what did you make of what we heard. well it was a field with nuance not a lot of fireworks not huge gains for either side but there were some key openings for the defense you heard there lieutenant johnny mercer a training officer support the prosecution case that he was not a normal police tactics for kerik shogun to put his need on george floyd's neck. but he also offered a little information that was helpful to the fans one of the openings that he
12:08 am
helped them with was they showed him a freeze frame of one moment during that 9 minutes and 29 seconds while george floyd was on the ground and in that frame they asked him where is derek show opens knee and he said between the blades of his back in other words he had moved off of george floyd neck well that's harmful to the prosecution case because they've been arguing all along that jovan had his knee on floyd's neck for 9 minutes and 2529 seconds consistently and then there was testimony also from a police medical officer her name is nicole mckenzie and she argued a couple of they were she was responsive to a couple of things one saying during cross-examination that the crowd can impact what the officers are able to do and that they would have to stop c.p.r. or not perform it if they felt it was unsafe now we do know from looking at the
12:09 am
reverse pictures of that scene there were maybe $7.00 to $10.00 people there the defense arguing that there was this rowdy crowd that was. dropping the officers from doing what they were doing it was potentially unruly but we saw that only a couple of times did anyone actually ever even step off the curb and the officer who was doing crowd control pushed back on them so when you called we can also talk about what she called excited delirium and that's the possibility that people who are on drugs and george floyd had methamphetamine in fentanyl in his system can sometimes have what she called superhuman strength well that could support the defense's case that the officers needed to restrain lloyd even though he wasn't showing any signs of resistance after the 1st few moments when he was on the ground but the date ended rather mysteriously an hour early we don't know why that happened but it ended with a paid prosecution witness his name is joe he's from the los angeles police
12:10 am
department and he said outright he believes the use of force was unnecessary well that's what you would expect from a prosecution witness but it certainly backs their case and the l.a.p.d. certainly knows a lot about the use of force. john hendren with the latest from minneapolis outside the court house john thank you. all one and sullivan is a law professor and the director of criminal justice institute at harvard law school he joins us now from newton massachusetts via skype sir thank you for joining us once again here on the al-jazeera again as our correspondent was saying maybe not so many exciting highlights if you will but a lot of cases there both for the prosecution and maybe also for that the friends who also had some good moments today. thank you barbara for having me again it's a pleasure to be back absolutely the defense had some great testimony today they
12:11 am
were actually able to get in key points of their theory of the case through government witnesses so one of the things that any trial attorney has to be careful of is over trying a case putting on too many which says opening the door for the sort of thing that happened hey you know this i think i really think this was a bad day for the government the defense is going to be able to argue based on today that it's discretionary what officers do on the screen that several variables indicate the degree of pressure that a officer might apply on this continuum of force and that the it's from the perspective of the officer on the ground those are 3 key elements in their theory that they got through the prosecution witnesses they haven't even put on their case yet so i think the prosecution needs to be very careful needs to narrow
12:12 am
the case in needs to her point its major point that it some point the force was too much and not argue in these small details that feeds into the defense theory of the case because just to remind the viewers there's 3 charges that there it show vinnie is facing but the most serious one that one that carries up to 40 years in prison is unintentional 2nd degree murder now prosecutors here have to prove that show the in his conduct what he did was a a substantial causal factor so this is really key i guess in what the defense has to prove because i guess they just have to cast doubt on that and the fact of their their man does not go to prison for 40 years. you know that's right in the american judicial system the burden of proof is with the government the whole time when i try cases i literally walk over to the government's table and smack it and
12:13 am
say the burden of proof is here it was here at the beginning it's here now they have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that this happened and that's a very very high standard so so far the defense is doing a really really good job i think there's plenty of evidence there to convict even on the high count of 2nd degree but the the prosecutor really has to up its his game in this. i guess what if you made all of the trial over all self i guess it's hard to say because of course you know we could have probably do have weeks ahead of us and as you said that defense hasn't called up its witnesses yet but what have you made because it's a kind of trial where obviously a lot of people had made their minds up already the 2nd they saw that video. well you know trials 2 in the go up and down up and down last week was a very good week for the government they ended up with the chief of police who came
12:14 am
raised his right hand swore to tell the truth and set that challenge misbehaved that he didn't do it properly that was powerful testimony strong testimony in the end that mass week on a high note this week has shifted so for me it's only tuesday but monday and tuesday has shifted in favor of the defense i think this trial is going to be at least 4 weeks long so we've got we're not at the halfway point yet so why have to see what what happens but there there tends to be a lot of arab in-flow in trials the key for any trial attorney is to go in and try to win the day to swim every day and the more wind you rack up the more it's sort of seeps into the consciousness of the jury your theory of the case right now they're arguing about narratives stories who's telling the
12:15 am
best story is it a case about excessive force or is it a case about drug overdose whichever one the jury believed that you wouldn't well certainly hope that we would be talking about this again but for the moment ronald sullivan law professor and the director of criminal justice institute at harvard law school sir thank you thank you barbara. coming up on this news hour from london izzy the man to unite an israeli government the president down sit. still gets them on the. fears of an oil slick off the coast of norway after crew members abandoned ship in rough water in. sudan says ethiopia is a unilateral moves over its may get them including filling it again where

12:17 am
and the european union that is something if european has strongly rejected and said that the the mediator of the talks between the 3 sides should remain the african union alone because they say that they believe african solutions to african problems now the 3 sides have failed to reach a deal despite those few talks a few days of talks so it looks like they've tried as much as they can but now sudan is thing that what ethiope if your peers doing its violating international laws it's trying to impose their reality on the ground without reaching a deal and they say that that's a violation not just international laws but the declaration of principles that was signed between the 3 countries in 2015 before the feeling of the crime if you've been renaissance them at least 56 people are now known to have died after days of tribal clashes in the west of sudan the u.n. says more than 130 people have been injured in battles between members of the arab . and massively tribes in west are for it began when unknown armed men killed 2 people from the last of it on saturday the government has declared

12:23 am
wing or extreme right wing coalition both of them don't give a damn about what's happening next door in the occupied territories where some 4 and a half 1000000 palestinians 56 many palestinians have been under occupation for the past 5 decades so it's certainly that palestinian issue is not an issue in those correlation forming exercises and is read the real issues are more religious more personal what. of certain politicians trying to gain power within the country and that's why we might see a 5th election coming because the national security of the country is not at stake it's the national ambition of political heads that is it stick. the process of letting up to 175000000 people vote is well underway in india

now thank you for joining us here on al-jazeera from what you understand what's actually happening to this ship now how far it is it away from the coast. thank you for hosting me barbara for another time you know the syrian plate blows up and what is happening of the from what we've seen from the vireos a state of providers is that. the good god is already nearby the vessel for many hours on the trying to you know they're taking actions to try to maintain the vessel floating because it's you know from the boards there's here the weather of the and the woman the 2 stools services well they're going towards the this seems really going to help and the over the operations but when you say help what are they trying to do are they trying to sort of i don't know and career stabilize the ship or to take it somewhere perhaps where waters are more tranquil. actually the 1st action they will trying to do is trying to stop eliza seat 1st and then try to
12:44 am
talk to a safe harbor somewhere so they can be able to float the vessel you know all that of course is hypothetical because we have to see what's the weather looks like and how the overall story develops. i mean mercifully the crew are safe they were all sort of air lifted off of the the ship but i guess the real worry though is that we're going to get an oil spill agenda and the numbers are are pretty stark 350 tons of heavy oil 50 tons of these all potentially this could be a disaster you know those numbers are usual for the market i'm sick to organize like money time we were talking about money time secure we've got to think about big numbers in this about big number of people in big numbers of cargo that we're carrying so that's something normal let's hope that we're not going to have a cup size of the vessel let's hope that the coast guard that sort of it's going to keep you know take actions to prevent in the offshore vessels that they're going to the scene they're going to help to prevent that kind of disaster to happen but in the worst case scenario even if the vessel is going to come science doesn't mean
12:45 am
that we're going to cover no experience no but if anything we've seen several he said this in the bunch that we had another cup size and you have any worries be so fingers crossed we're not going to have a stance on accidents i guess ships have been in the news quite a lot recently this time and of course the one that got stuck in the suez canal just a few weeks ago i mean it's worth remembering that in these times we just had a report about airplanes and flight and we know that most of the ground the but actually the shipping industry has kept a lot of transport and commerce going during the pandemic. that's correct in the seeping sector i'm proud that a member or because we keep trading 365 you know we're operating 247365 days we haven't stopped because of the but they're big and that's also something i would like to highlight you know the seafarers to do 100000 seats there is a lot out there and they're you know operating day by day and we thought coming in
12:46 am
even that's on some of them being stuck for a year in their vessels because of the court situation they cannot go back home because of the overall distinction of their facing so yes we're a business we're a sector that we're continue supplying with goods the overall sector and we're proud of it because we keep supplying the overall supply chain. staff betty this leg truer in maritime economics at the university of plymouth here in the u.k. sir thank you you're welcome. that the waters near the equator are becoming too hot for many species the handle new research shows the temperature of the seas surface rose by nearly 0.2 degrees celsius in the 40 years to 2010 anything at or above 20 degrees means the diversity of fish species levels off and it can be gained to the colline their report from the this
