4:02 pm
israel 5th sabotaging its key nuclear facility tehran describe sunday's incident which knocked out a power grid in the tons as an act of terrorism it happened a day off to iran unveiled a new advanced uranium centrifuges the destruction of the site comes ahead also of a round of other talks in vienna later this week that's attempting to revive the 2050 nuclear deal. that iran must never possessed nuclear weapons my policy as prime minister of israel is clear i will never allow iran to obtain the nuclear capability to carry out its genocidal goal of eliminating israel and israel will continue to defend itself against iran's aggression and terrorism well we have 2 correspondents on the story as a bag is in the iranian capital tehran we'll speak to him in just a moment but 1st let's speak to harry for cities and westerly somewhat prime minister benjamin netanyahu and the u.s. secretary of defense have been meeting today and harry we had plenty from them
4:03 pm
about the strength of their relationship and cooperation but very little in particular from the u.s. defense secretary about iran. well yes i think what was not mentioned in that double briefing was more interesting than what was we heard from netanyahu as you say with very familiar language talking about iran being the most dangerous serious and pressing threat to israeli security as you heard in that clip saying that he personally as prime minister of israel would never allow iran to possess a nuclear weapon what he didn't talk about was the iran nuclear deal that the by the ministration has said that it wants to. find a way back towards and that's what these talks in vienna this week being resumed are all about and so he didn't mention that deal at all unlike his defense minister benny gantz obviously also a very bitter political rival they just fought an election against each other they
4:04 pm
don't have a shared policy platform but he in his meeting with austin on sunday said that israel would work closely with the americans to ensure that any new deal safeguarded israeli security netanyahu who has been speaking very vociferously against any idea of the deal didn't even mention it in public as for austin again there was fairly familiar u.s. language about the ensuring nature of the alliance about looking for stability in the region and working together to find ensuring peace supporting the efforts of the previous trump administration in terms of achieving more normalization between israel and arab nations in the region but there was no mention by him of iran at all and no mention either by either man specifically about this attack on the enrichment facility at natanz there has been though a report from the news agency here in israel citing an unnamed u.s.
4:05 pm
official saying that there was no u.s. involvement in that attack pretty wide scale briefing from israeli intelligence sources though to the local media that there was israeli involvement. with all the latest for us from jerusalem thanks so much gary. well now let's get the view from tehran and speak to us and bag now asad as he was saying no specific mention of a tense from either of the 2 men today that iran has been pretty vocal about who they think is responsible yes iran has been pretty vocal this morning we had the foreign ministry spokesperson who said that israel is always against iran's nuclear program and against those negotiations iran is working towards trying to get those u.s. sanctions lifted he said that he was glad that there was no injury to anybody or environmental damage but it could have resulted in a tragedy in the head of iran's atomic organization that said that emergency electricity is now in place at the in the 10s facility and the damage will be
4:06 pm
assessed over the coming days and that any damage would be compensated by increasing capacity by 50 percent but this does raise questions about iran's ability to protect its facilities and security inside the country over the last year we've had a previous attack on the natanz affairs facility which iran called called sabotage in the summer of last year and we also had the assassination of iran's lead nuclear scientist mohsin factories are the just outside of the horizon in november so there are questions being raised about the security and the ability of iran to protect its facilities and i said obviously a really critical time at the moment where does all of this leave those talks in vienna. well it definitely makes them much more difficult iran won't want to be seen to compromise from a position of weakness so if it was thought that this would reduce iran's capabilities and capacity to enrich uranium uranium therefore removing their
4:07 pm
leverage well they're less likely to want to compromise internally there's a lot of pressure on president hassan rouhani reformist government from the conservatives who have always been against the nuclear deal always been against negotiations and they will look to blame not only israel but the united states for this and there's already been been warnings to president hassan rouhani and his administration in the papers here and from certain politicians warning him not to make mistakes in those negotiations so it will make those talks in vienna very very difficult. bag that for us in the iranian capital tehran thanks so much as. well there are still plenty more ahead here this news hour including a cautious reopening after months of lockdown in england well have a live update for you from bryson. celebrations in russia marks 60 years since the fast man went into space. and

4:10 pm
break a minute later i called in as governor answered with a passenger in the car and that even started me she put it on the. drivers by to make their life work. people are on edge here as all this happened just 16 kilometers away from where george floyd was killed in may last year. former police officer derek show than is currently on trial after he was film kneeling on lloyd's neck for more than 9 minutes during the arrest the video sparked global protests against police brutality and racism in the united states drugs chauvinists charged with murder and manslaughter his trial is in its 3rd week in a poor house surrounded with tight security the minnesota national guard troops deployed for the trial have now been sent to brooklyn center there are local reports of some protesters destroying and looting local businesses. and 2 police protesters had already been rallying since the trial started. when i was a person maybe it ever was going to be the last time that we all come together like

4:12 pm
police ended up having to do to pull off a tear gas after hundreds of demonstrators came up on a police station in a tactic that has become familiar since last summer here in minneapolis they were in brooklyn park it's about 16 kilometers away and it is within the sphere of the riots and looting that happened after the may 25th killing of george floyd and last night that looting extended overnight here in to minneapolis we're told that in brooklyn park itself there were about 20 buildings that were targeted and so you had national guard troops from here in minneapolis sent out there and were also told there will be more national guard troops coming into this city so this incident could not really have happened at a worse time but of course the protesters are here preparing for the show from case what happens after this incident we will see in the coming days and john as you
4:13 pm
mentioned that it's day 11 of the shaven trial today people will be watching more closely than adam. that's right we are expecting the prosecution to wrap its case either today or tomorrow we're expecting a doctor possibly another pulmonologist lung expert and then we are expecting what they call a spark of life testimony that something they do here in minnesota where a member of the family talks about the impact on the family and who the person was who died that's the kind of thing we normally hear in the closing arguments of the trial and i'm sure we'll hear them there as well the witness impact statement they come often before sentencing here they're going to do it today that will be the emotional close we expect of the prosecution's case and then the defense is going to have to come out and they've got a lot of work to do because expert after expert has testified that george floyd died of asphyxiation that he died with derrick children in the on his neck and
4:14 pm
police officers including the chief of police here who fired derrick open after that event said that those techniques were not approved so we're expecting some exciting testimony in the coming days we're told that the closing is likely on the defense side to take 2 or 3 days or so instead of the 2 weeks or so that we've seen with the prosecution that is typical it's not a matter of who has more witnesses it's a matter of what the witnesses have to say john hendren following all of that for us there in minneapolis will be seeing him later as well thanks so much john. as all of that has happened in minnesota a video has imagine showing police offices in the u.s. state of the ginia using excessive force on an unarmed black army officer during a traffic stop he's now suing for racial profiling accusing the offices of throwing a gun even though he didn't resist reynolds reports. other bizarre here on the.
4:15 pm
u.s. army officer care on the zarya was driving on a dark road in rural virginia last december when police pulled him over for a missing license plate what happened next he and his attorney say was a case of racial profiling and police brutality and i had the right here with go and learn more of the world was briefed about it but yeah there should be get out of windsor virginia police officer joe get cherice pepper sprayed lieutenant in the zarya even though his hands were raised then he was not resisting. you know your gun which in the front is the route to the freedom from the stuff that brought the little blood to the floor just procured by him out of the car and zaria repeatedly asked the policeman why he was being assaulted you know the cold out there was not how you treat of that i'm actively serving this
4:16 pm
country this is how you going to treat what i did i did not know well what the policeman ordered no sario who was unarmed and wearing his military uniform out of the car and knocked him to the ground why i have no friends well nasa was just miles from of the. missouri oh has sued the windsor police for violating his constitutional rights alleging assault and illegal detention here he was not in any way she his hands are clearly just and he is the one that remains calm and these men are right. it's absurd oh thought this area was not charged in the incident says the policeman threatened to damage his reputation in the military if he told anyone about how he was treated they knew they were in the wrong and then they threatened to destroy a man's career if he called him out of bizarre iau had temporary license plates
4:17 pm
displayed on his vehicle which in use governor is ordered in an independent investigation the windsor police department has not responded to news media requests for comment officials from the town of windsor virginia say good cheer as has been fired robert oulds al-jazeera. 1000 infections are surging to dangerous new highs in many countries but in some restrictions are even easing as cases that decline well india has soared past brazil to become the 2nd most affected country in terms of a total number of cases and on monday it recorded a staggering 169000 new cases a new wave in germany has pushed infections there past 3000000 and chancellor angela merkel says it may be the toughest wave yet meanwhile japan has imposed more restrictions with the hopes of preventing any outbreaks in the run up to the tokyo
4:18 pm
lympics now england has seen a drop in infections prompting an easing of restrictions which includes i think pubs restaurants and head dresses. stephanie deca is in berlin will be speaking to her in just a moment about the rise of infections in germany but 1st let's go to rory chalons he's in brighton for us we're just looking at the same there looks like a very peaceful day in brighton and a people out to celebrate. started off chilly and snowy after say down on brighton sea front this morning it's turned out a bit nice and sunny now so you can see that there are people for the 1st time in months out having a meal in public sitting at tables drinking a glass of wine eating some lunch it's kind of a step back towards normality what this country is miss for a long time now i've been out and about around brighton seeing the different sectors that of gone through the changes today have the restrictions on the lessons
4:19 pm
we've been outside of one of the main high street chains prime are with q. snaking all the way around the block and down the street people clearly with a lot of perhaps pocket change they've been saving up for months and have been desperate to get out there and do a bit of clothes shopping in a real bricks and mortar store in a way they haven't been able to do for a long time we've been in their headdress as well which has had queues out the door people desperate to come and get their lock down locks trimmed off or there they graze covered up etc so this is the kind of normal life that people have been missing and it's starting to creep back again it's uneven after say you know for places in the hospitality sector restaurants cafes and pubs they're only allowed to you know sit people down outside you can't still go inside and have a meal indoors and that's a problem because only 2 out of every 5 hospitality businesses actually has outside
4:20 pm
space so that's a very uneven playing field and lots of them over the last few months have had to close down but you know that the vaccine picture across the u.k. has really made this possible we're in a situation now where 40000000 people in the u.k. have had. a vaccine of some sorts and 7 or 8000000 are actually been. elated with both shots and it's sonora that is allowed this country to take this step back to normality is a still way way to go yet so we have to wait another month or 2 before life really gets back to the kind of previous prior situation normality but this i think is a welcome step and it's being welcomed by many and i see rory that the prime minister himself celebrated with a haircut this morning thanks so much for a challenge there with all the latest for us from brighton well let's now go to
4:21 pm
stephanie decker she is across all the developments for us from berlin stephanie very very different situation in germany and some fairly ominous words there from chance from apple. that's right and it's not the 1st time that this warning has come that this 3rd wave could potentially be the most deadly even a couple of weeks ago already we had warnings from some senior health officials saying that if a more secure lock down wasn't put in place across the country that you could run out of i.c.u. beds within a couple of weeks well that's the debate happening now because they're saying that you're having more people get coming into the hospitals details as 40 to 6 year olds be 60 year olds being affected also that it's the british strain what's known as the british strain that is more prominent these days is certainly a concern and the fact that there's been such a back and forth when it comes to implementing any form of lockdown germany is run by a decentralized government system 16 states each having their own were taught to me
4:22 pm
when it comes to their health policies and that's the thing even though we see numbers rising some of the states actually. easing restrictions if you will this is why also now we have a political debate happening happening on how to clamp down because certainly even chancellor angela merkel tried to impose a strict lockdown over easter and she had to do you turn within 24 hours and apologize to the german public to just gives you a sense of i think you know safe to say a bit of the disarray that the policy is at the moment you talk there about this political debate steph i'm curious how is the government going to try to make it easier for it to impose lockdowns if necessary. well there actually going to propose a change to the legislation when it comes to dealing with the pandemic which will mean basically it's going to be presented to cabinet tomorrow on tuesday to allow the central government to have more powers if you will to impose lock downs on the states if the numbers of corona virus infections go over
4:23 pm
a certain level this here has been deemed to be over 100 cases in 100000 now inching along interesting the enough most states in germany at the moment are at that point so i think you're hearing the consensus now in the language coming out that it's going back and forth for so long nothing has been done that perhaps we may see a clamping down of restrictions over the next couple of weeks but again it's 1st going to have to go to parliament pawson parliament but many people saying that we could perhaps expect that to be passed by the end of the week but again certainly the warnings coming from politicians and from the health officials that if more isn't done to impose a stricter lockdown that the numbers really could get out of control back out there with all the latest for us from that and thank you so much that. correspondent elizabeth purana now has more on the coronavirus infection is that we're seeing in india. for the past 6 days the cases have been there have been a record number of cases every day and more than one 100004 the past 6
4:24 pm
days with nearly 170000 cases on sunday and so one week ago the government sent a medical team to the worst affected states and to 2 other states punjab and shut the school with the death rate was very very hard to try and figure out why the situation. was what it was in maharashtra and also in punjab and shut this guy the medical teams have said that in all of the states that had 19 appropriate behavior isn't being followed that the containment measures on optimal that testing capacity is overwhelmed that worryingly in maharashtra there aren't enough health workers to do with the at least 60000 cases a day that the state has recording that there isn't enough oxygen supply and that ventilator is malfunctioning over the past few days in maharashtra we have started to see migrant workers as india has a very large number of people who work in different states to where they're from starting to leave the capital they're also starting to leave india's capital delhi
4:25 pm
because they're afraid that they're going to lose their jobs and that public transport will close and maharashtra which is home to more than 125000000 people is considering a complete lockdown there are night curfews in place and many cities around the country one across the border in bangladesh or authorities are also stepping up restrictions to try to curb the rise in infections their heyday is starting on wednesday officers must close and all domestic and international travel will not be allowed a night curfew has already been put into place and many non-essential businesses have already closed but local media are reporting that restrictions in several towns are not being enforced. well it's not time for the weather. the violent weather has gone from florida bay you can see it going it's this massive thunderstorms in the tail end of a cold front which is wrapped around this system here see the arcs of cloud as the back end of
4:26 pm
a low which is drawing cold arctic air in fact across central counted down into the northern plains states minnesota back to montana the cold will spread further south but it will be warmed by the sunshine never less because the difference in the cold and warm in the cold brings more snow to the rockies we will get development of showers further south most their biggest ones are going to be near the gulf coast not quite the same area as before however they could still be pretty vicious but that's the picture for wednesday that is jump south once again we're going to see a repeat of potentially big showers drifting through the bahamas towards his band including cuba jamaica parts of rico and of course the small islands quite a few showers slow moving and with the upper winds being westerlies that means the ash cloud france and vincent does indeed bring ash to barbados we've seen pictures that are no doubt but the trade winds mean it'll be wettest in panama costa rica and to some degree further west as well most of mexico looks fine but the far

4:39 pm
the stationing 2021 seems to be getting worse as the numbers of children and adults i get the need of our systems base to i think 9000000 a 3rd of the population and an increase of $700000.00 compared to last year. now yes today it's federal government of somalia and out and up people that go nuts and that are full support in this corny to watch the names out conditions the government stated that the country is facing critical to war. and more than 50 districts experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions the government file a stated that more than 160000 people have been recently displaced due to 2 to the drought this number is our day to 2600000 people already that splits within the country as a result of protracted conflict and chronic humanitarian crisis we did was sending drought conditions fodder population displacement expected i don't know how many
4:40 pm
and i want to hear a little more about sorry that the context of that one place because this is all happening within the context of huge political instability in the country as well as still no real sense of freedom challenge going forward after those elections were delayed obviously over the security situation that you alluded to we've spoken so many times about manmade famines in this region is there going to be the leadership to actually address this crisis to as we're seeing it unfold now. i think these these positive. feedback from the government sees a comment in defense now overnight that they need to change for cuts from. 2 to i really doubt but the zone so i need to look into longer comes debility and producing that conflict which usually displaced people i'm not said the population was already struggling with their climatic conditions so that yes
4:41 pm
they use these these are positive. steps towards that i that action from the government. but these are political. tension currently which we think it could be resolved because there are ongoing you know which issues between different actors when moving from the political climate to the economic crime you've talked about how the is a long time pressures here this is coming down to climate change as well and we're also saying that given the context of the pandemic even the u.n. is striving to get their major appeals funded in yemen for example do you think you'll actually get the money that you need this $150000000.00. yeah this is $150000000.00 this is not a signature it's not asking money to implement septa bit it's that they say immaterial hispanos plan that has been launched by the government and the us and we are doing that they don't us to to find that you meant it and that's what's allowed got less local gas these need paul i get. press once we have seen
4:42 pm
