will give the authorities more time to investigate cases of blood coursing anthony urges the 6800000 americans who have received the jab a nazi. it's a worry as the latest findings he says has nothing to do with its efficacy of the u.s. food and drug administration also says the polls is only a precautionary move it has prompted johnson and johnson to delay its ruling in europe and in the past our south africa has suspended that it's is they've announced they're suspending given that particular vaccine a couple of issues come up of of the importance of. calling this pause because people say what is a poor is mean it really allows both the f.d.a. and the c.d.c. to further investigate these cases to try and understand. some of the mechanisms of
9:03 pm
what it is some more details about the history of the individuals who are involved in might shed some light on looking forward what will happen and what we will do. well to answer as a fire she was speaking at the white house for multiple topics including coverts afghanistan and ukraine have been discussed well to cover all that for you we have our diplomatic head start james bay standing by for us at the united nations patty kohei and as i say the u.s. food and drug administration in silver spring but 1st let's head to our white house correspondent kimberly. camberley of just lying there a very wide ranging briefing what did you make of that. you're right many topics and of interest was the fact the president in that briefing room was dr anthony found she that we've not seen in the white house briefing room for some time and so reporters getting an opportunity to ask questions in light of the recommendation by the c.d.c.
9:04 pm
to pas administering the johnson and johnson vaccine. what is notable from his comments there is that he believes this pos has been recommended will last days not weeks but there were also foreign policy issues that were also carefully being discussed and within that was a bit of detail on this announcement that the withdrawal of u.s. troops from afghanistan will lot meet that may 1st deadline that had been put in place by the trumpet ministration in a deal with the taliban but instead will now be moved to the anniversary the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the twin towers in new york city as well as the pentagon so getting a little bit more clarity on that and finally we learned that there has been a telephone call between the u.s. president joe biden and vladimir putin the russian leader the white house press secretary gentz psaki not disclosing who initiated that phone call but we do know
9:05 pm
that the call resulted in the leaders agreeing to meet at a later date for a summit in a 3rd party country those details still being worked out so a very busy white house press briefing in terms of news headlines there absolutely is to stay there for us can believe sports it's a scar in the minutes but of course the crew virus. issues so very much to the forefront of people's mind right now let's speak. she is standing by for us i'd say the u.s. food and drug administration in silver spring. patty this polls of the the johnson and johnson vaccine pretty much where a lot of people's minds just give us a sense of what you know about how the polls has been introduced and what kind of impacts will bond have on the wider u.s. vaccine. well the biden ministration says the
9:06 pm
johnson and johnson johnson and johnson vaccine was the 3rd vaccine approved it's being used less than the other to the pfizer and they say they've seen no red flags when it comes to those vaccines but this is a really big deal for the world because let's take a step back and remember why people were so excited about the johnson and johnson vaccine it's cheaper to make it doesn't have to be refrigerated and you can get it in just one dose and you're believed to have some immunity after just 2 weeks so this was really what the world was counting on so this actually is a pretty big deal but there are critics they say look 6800000 people in the u.s. have got the shot just 6 women have developed these blood clots now these type of blood clots to happen if you look at about a 1000000 people about 2 to 14 people in that 1000000 will get these particular kinds of clots in a given year but that said what the scientists are saying it's not just the blood clots that are happening they're happening in all 6 cases a good junction with low platelets and why does that matter well if people go to
9:07 pm
the doctor and they think it's a blood clot there's a standard treatment but in this case that treatment could actually kill people so what they're doing is saying we're taking this policy we can tell doctors what to look for we can tell people have gotten the johnson and johnson shot what to be careful of if you start developing a severe headache leg paid stomach pain shortness of breath they said you need to go to the doctor right away and explain to them that you had the johnson and johnson vaccine so that they can give you a different treatment but again there are critics there saying look this is just 6 people so many people in the united states are dying every day from the code of vaccine which is much more dangerous if you get it than the one and a 1000000 chance that this will be a blood clot for you but as kimberly said they said it's going to be days they're going to have meetings here and throughout the country really all the scientists together virtually as usual and they're going to try and exactly figure out why these 6 people if there are certain subgroup of people that shouldn't get the vaccine so they hope to have some answers in the coming. but it's going to matter
9:08 pm
and not just to the people in the united states but really all across the globe absolutely and it's interesting what you're seeing there the johnson and johnson vaccine is something of a game changer certainly and it's cheaper easier to rule it is very very menacing of what happened with the astra zeneca vaccine and again the astra zeneca vaccine these blood clots for finding a very small number of people people are still insisting it's safer to take this vaccine that it is so. it's a risk getting cool for it's but when these warnings came out of blood clots in very small numbers of people who received the astra zeneca vaccine that had a marks impact on public confidence in taking this jump how is it playing out in the united states are people reacting to this news that this vaccine that they pinned so many hopes own has no been poems. but i think you're going to see an even greater concern and the scientists here say there is some linkage between the problems with the potential problems with this
9:09 pm
johnson and johnson and with the astra zeneca saying they're both very similar vaccines but vaccine hesitancy in the u.s. it's a very real problem we're seeing more than a 3rd of people tell pollsters that doesn't a wait and see or they're only going to take the vaccine if it's required of them and a large portion of those are saying they're never going to take it ever so all of this just fuels more misinformation on the internet makes those people who are maybe kind of going to be able to talked into it maybe they'll start thinking maybe not the white house and scientists here were asked aren't you worried about what this is going to do to vaccine hesitancy and they are trying to say look we're going to say to people were being transparent this is maybe a problem but we're stopping it because the science is so good we just want to make sure that when we say you can trust it you can trust it so they're hoping that people take maybe a different message from that but i can tell you the people who are really dug in and say they're not to take the vaccine. this is going to be all over their social
9:10 pm
media posts and them saying yes at all jeff ok keep an eye on their party but for now i will leave it thank you very much indeed dan's particle here in speaking outside the u.s. food and drug administration in maryland thank you very much indeed every bar in the united states let's head back to washington d.c. we can join our white house correspondent kimberly whole kit once again accumulate live on some more of the things we learned during that fairly wide ranging. press conference just a few moments ago. the press secretary was asked about it's a phone call that place between president putin and joe biden and the significance is that not not least because relations between the united states and russia have been under quite a lot of strain over the last few months and years. yeah i found it really notable that this we get this readout of the way from the white house press secretary of
9:11 pm
the exchange and phone calls between joe biden and lattimer putin because it comes a day after i asked the question given the of the white house given the military build up along ukraine's border by russia at what point does this rise to the level that the president needs to make that call and less than 24 hours after i was in the briefing room asked that question we have a readout i don't know if it had anything to do with al-jazeera pushing the issue but here we go we have some of the answers what we know is that the united states in the end the president articulated to vladimir putin his grave concern about this military buildup particularly along the borders in an occupied crimea and that the goal of the united states is not to have good relationships with russia but instead for it to be stable and predictable and i think that is what has been the concern for the united states in recent months and years we know that joe biden underscored
9:12 pm
that when it comes to the sovereignty of ukraine that the united states upholds and respects that and also believes that when it comes to u.s. national security interests that the united states will always defend those particularly when it comes to concerns about russia's cyber intrusions and not only the fact that it has infiltrated in many cases corporations but also of course our elections so these are some of the points that were underscored by the u.s. president in this call we also know that they pledged to meet at the summit at a later date in the coming months where they will discuss what they say are a range of issues lots to keep an eye on. it we'll leave it there thank you very much indeed for prayers the latest there from the white. diplomats good sir james he's been following the ongoing talks with the taliban. joins us now from the united nations james in this press conference this making all the news
9:13 pm
this hour there was a suggestion of a possible u.s. troop drawdown in afghanistan dates being floated around september the 11th but you've got more information about the talks that the taliban has been holed saying what more do we know at this stage well i don't think so nice and any coincidence that these things are coming out on the same day if the u.s. is going to leave afghanistan in september is going to be concerned about what it's going to leave behind in afghanistan having said that a senior official of the afghan government tweeting in the last few minutes that president biden is expected to talk to president gone in the near future to officially share details of the new withdrawal plan so the afghan government hasn't officially been told about that the afghan government though has been told about new talks that it's supposed to have with the taliban remember talks have been taking place in doha they were successful in a deal between the u.s.
9:14 pm
and the taliban but they've been bogged down in the talks between the afghan government and the taliban the idea is to reboot things in istanbul the announcement was made by the spokes person for the u.n. secretary general the conference will focus on helping the negotiating parties reach a new set of shared fundamental principles that reflect an agreed vision for a future of ghana stem road map to a future political settlement and of course an end to the conflict is the u.n. as one of the koch conveners still committed to a democratic afghanistan to an afghanistan with freedom of expression and an afghanistan with equal rights for women and the u.n. committed to their 3 weeks we are committed to the people of afghanistan we are committed to ensuring that the gains that have been made or not lost and that is especially true for women in afghanistan.
9:15 pm
so will the taliban attend these talks that is a big question and they haven't answered it yes they certainly rejected nerdier date of the 16th of this month the talks in our schedule than 10 days time on the 24th of the month also questions about who will represent from the afghan side we know that government officials will be there but there are other political figures from other different parties that we want to be part of this and i think the other bigger question that hangs on over all of this is now that the by administration has extended its state from maine the 1st to september the 11th to pull out its troops it's saying it's definitely going to do it this time and it's not going to be conditions based so what leverage do they have over the taliban that talks like this if the taliban know they only have to wait until september and the u.s. will be god ok james base there live from the united nations in new york thank you james. thank you are still ahead on this news out including iran says it's begun
9:16 pm
enriching uranium to the highest level so far in a day after accusing israel of sabotaging a key new clear site and as for what the taiwanese baseball player who's been subjected to racist abuse saturday look in the state during the game. india says it will be will be approving foreign vaccines starting with russia sputnik the after again reporting the world's highest daily tally of new covered $1000.00 infections confirms more than 161000 new cases on tuesday and 879 deaths the actual numbers expected to be higher because test results were delayed over the weekend elizabeth paradigm has more now from new delhi. unfortunately we are seeing the kinds of pictures that we did last year during the
9:17 pm
peak of the 1st wave of the coronavirus most recently we have seen pictures of bodies outside the biggest government run hospital in the city of port and dr bruce chief medical officer said this is because they don't have enough freezes to keep the bodies and that more bodies at cremorne tory and in the city than can be cremated that hospital's intensive care units and oxygen equipped beds have been at almost full capacity over the past week i put it in the state of charge the school which is one of the worst affected at the moment it also has a disproportionately high death rate which is why the central government and to medical teams to top the school to find out why the situation is so bad there why more people seem to be dying there and those teens reported back and said that there are a number of issues there is a lack of hospital beds in many districts there's a shortage of ambulances in one district that the number of tests are going down
9:18 pm
that containment measures aren't being aren't being. imposed properly and that there is resistance to other containment measures including attacks on health care workers boss these issues and are not unique to that state most of these issues are and we have reports of a shortage of medical facilities of equipment in a number of places most notably in the worst affected states where medical teams which was sent there also said that there was a knack of oxygen supply and even malfunctioning ventilators. well let's get more on the situation we're joined now by krishna kumari friends and director at the global health innovation center and he joins us by skype from raleigh north carolina it's great to have you with those only use our fears of 2 problems in india one of course is. this break and we have a correspondence of this with piron and reasons why this these numbers are surging
9:19 pm
but the other is vaccines and facts distribution where do you think the the vaccine problem lie is because interest in c. is really plays a pivotal role in making vaccines worldwide and getting them out why is it so hard to provide the vaccines to its own population that's right india really plays a critical role for the global response back scenes and vaccinations for co at 19 and what we're starting to see is that supplies have been ramped up significantly but are running into bottlenecks and at the same time the demand domestically in india is going up significantly because the cases are rising rising and health systems are really buckling under that added pressure so while we've got private industry including the serum institute in india and bar the biotech that are many factoring internally to india they're not able to keep up with the domestic needs
9:20 pm
and the aggressive vaccination strategies and goals that have been laid out and secondly because they can't even meet the domestic needs they're now also putting at risk access for other low and middle income countries especially as those that are getting access through the kovacs platform will come to the kovacs platform in just a minute it is interesting though that given these bottlenecks in these challenges . with the sickly manufactured vaccine it seems only know that india is approving external vaccine candidates like nick i'm not sure what the situation is with pfizer by and 2nd medinah why do you think it's taken so long to approve these external vaccines is it politics trumping public health or is there something else at play. and say that what really drove decisions until now was the fact that there was relatively good control of coated in the indian context so they even were able to export more than 60000000 doses of domestically manufactured vaccines now that
9:21 pm
the situation on the ground in india is becoming more dire the need for vaccination is going up significantly and in addition to the domestic manufacturing there are going to have to be imports to meet the short term needs and it's a prudent change in the regulatory regime to rather than ask for bridging studies before approval to go ahead and grant emergency authorization based on approval by other stringent regulatory authorities or the w.h.o. and look at post post-marketing surveillance essentially to make sure that those vaccines continue to work so i think the prior decisions were really in keeping with the appropriate regulatory context in india and they've now exercise some flexibility to ensure access under emergency use needs is it too little too late. it is going to be too little too late unfortunately for many people in india and and in other parts of the world as we've seen in. fact of the matter is that we've
9:22 pm
got to ramp up both the supply as well as distribution of vaccines but in the coming days 2 weeks back nations are not going to get us out of the acute phase of this pandemic including in india so vaccines are report of the solution but we also really have to make sure that sound public health measures including mass social distancing and either lock downs travel restrictions or other types of public health mechanisms are put in place to get out of control of the situation that's rapidly spinning out of control and then the and i says things where you are they're going great guns with their vaccine roulette they're managing to vaccinate tens if not hundreds of millions of people what about the people who are reliant on this koufax scheme because the indian vaccine production the kovacs scheme was meant to be the way out of the pandemic for countries that don't have the resources of countries like the united states so given the situation that we're seeing in
9:23 pm
india the challenges that india is facing what's your prediction for how much longer this pandemic is going to drag on for given that poorer nations simply cannot get the vaccine that the richer nations can. yeah the manufacturing capacity for covert vaccines around the world is really stretched so we're looking at well into next year before we're going to have enough vaccines manufactured and we know that the distribution and has also been extremely unequitable so far and so the kovacs especially i think is in a difficult position they've been able to purchase and allocate some doses of the pfizer biotech back scene that will go into place in the coming months i think it puts more responsibility for countries including to us to start making vaccine doses available sooner rather than later and we think the u.s. is going to have excess doses in the coming weeks to months so over the summer especially it's going to be important for not an overreliance on vaccines from
9:24 pm
india but really also looking to other sources of vaccine for low and middle income countries. founding director at the global health innovation center great so get your thoughts on your analysis thank you so much for joining us on the news are thank you. retired paramedic who attended c. george floyd's the year before he died says he admitted speaking to pilates michelle was saying says she was worried about floyd's blood pressure after she took his vitals defense lawyers at the trial of former police officer derek chauvin want to prove floyd died because of drug use and a heart condition showed his face in murder charges for handcuffing floyd faced and kneeling on his neck with a 9 minutes. did you do a physical assessment of mr ford time. and that would include his blood pressure at the time yes and did you record what his blood pressure was at that time. to nearly
9:25 pm
16 over 160 did you automatically make recommendations to transport mr floyd to the hospital based on that and others. and ultimately did he was he brought to. iran says it's starting to enrich uranium to 60 percent purity and what would be the will significant breach of the 2050 nuclear deal this comes a day after to hand accuse israel of sabotaging the the tons nuclear plants there russia's foreign minister was into iran for talks that bait reports from the a brain in capital. united front iran and russia longtime allies both say they want u.s. sanctions against iran lifted talks between the remaining members of the 2015 nuclear deal iran china france germany russia and the united kingdom set to resume
9:26 pm
in vienna on thursday but there was a warning from foreign minister zarif. we talk and then you know to restore the rights of our people and sanctions but these talks have a limited time europe and america's time to return to their commitments under the j c p a is very limited and if they lose this opportunity they will face unfavorable conditions russia called on all parties to return to the deal particularly because we understand our partners in tehran are ready to move forward immediately on this issue provided the u.s. takes the appropriate steps we support the ongoing negotiations in vienna and condemn any attempt to undermine these important talks an attack on iran's main nuclear facility in the city of attends on sunday that left it blacked out has increased tensions both inside and outside the country and are expected to affect the talks conservative politicians in iran never supported the 2015 nuclear deal in
9:27 pm
the 1st place many are now calling on president has undergone in any goshi actions following sunday's incident at iran's main nuclear facility this adds to the pressure for the negotiating team and set a time frame in the current government leaving office in august russia condemned what it said were attempts to undermine the negotiations the extent of the damage at the natanz nuclear facility is becoming more apparent in. the event that happened on sunday relating to an electricity grid destroyed a great deal of our enrichment capabilities several 1000 centrifuges are now out of service the government blamed israel for what it called sabotage and issued this warning a lot of fear we will retaliate for the attack on the towns at all levels at the proper time with similar magnitude we won't allow our enemies to reach their political objectives. iran says it will now enrich uranium to 60 percent that's 40 percent higher than it already is and around 56 percent higher than permitted in
9:28 pm
the nuclear deal but all eyes are on vienna with many sides hoping that despite the incident at natanz. that can still be a breakthrough i thought big al jazeera iran. there are reports that an israeli owned commercial ship has been attacks near the ports of gyra in the united arab emirates israeli media court says unnamed israeli officials blaming the attack on iran and also reporting that there were no casualties the incident comes a day after iran accused israel of sabotaging the natanz nuclear sites egyptian authorities have impounded the container ship that blocked the suez canal last month the ever given got stuck for nearly a week to struts and billions of dollars worth of trades the head of the suez canal says the vessel won't spear released until its japanese owner settles a claim for compensation ports it's worth $900000000.00.

12 of the derek shelvin trial in minneapolis is under way with the defense calling vera witnesses a former police officer and a retired paramedic had been testifying chauvinist accused of murdering george floyd's used to earth triggered world wide protest a man saying racial justice a police officer turned training consultant is testifying and a weitzman a source of police officer who fatally shot a black man cheering a traffic stop in minneapolis. cheering the weekend as well as the city's chief of police have also resigns no this comes after 2 nights of a process sir cross life not too many hapless or we can speak to john hendren who's following that trial for us our john let's just say stay with the trial just talk us through the testimony that we've heard so far say from the defense and give us
9:34 pm
a sense of what it reveals about the defense's strategy. well the day began with the prosecution saying the state of minnesota rests in the defense began calling a series of witnesses police experts paramedics but they didn't start with the events of may 25th they started with an arrest of george floyd in 2019 and they're using that video to try to support the defense theory that george floyd might his died from a drug overdose or from his heart trouble and in specifically when it comes to the drugs they're pointing out in this 2019 arrest floyd allegedly took some tablets of opioids while the police were in the process of trying to get him out of the car they suggest there is a pattern here. but in cross-examination the prosecution
9:35 pm
asked george floyd didn't drop dead did he the point being and the course the officer said no the point being that this 2019 case according to the prosecution is not relevant but the defense has been battered by one medical witness after another from their prosecution arguing that the cause of death for george floyd was derrick show his knee on his neck that cut off his oxygen and stuffed his heart so they need to do 2 things they need police to support the theory that derrick chauvinist hold with his name on george floyd neck was not appropriate and they need medical witnesses to suggest some other cause of death because otherwise it lays on derek chauvin that's what all of the previous prosecution witnesses have said so we've seen body camera footage from that 2019 event the defense didn't seem to gain a lot of ground on that one with the jury and then we had body camera footage new body camera footage from the arrest on may 25th and they were trying to draw
9:36 pm
parallels between these 2 what we're really expecting to come up that was medical experts who can support that theory ok but we'll let you get back to the coverage of that trial for nye so joan hendricks live outside the courthouse thank you very much indeed joan. let's stay with this because fact that it's not just harris she's a professor of american studies and political science at mcallister college and joins us by skype from minneapolis it's great to have you with us on the news hour it was quite interesting that the testimony that we've we've heard so far in this 1st day from the defense it kind of begs the question if you like who is on trial here that really is the question of the day and i think that the strategy that defense is using to put george floyd on trial when actually it is mr show is on trial is
9:37 pm
a strategy that is not going to serve the wow this trial is being tried in the opinion of public court and i really don't think that looking at george floyd's behavior in 2019 will be persuasive i mean you you mentioned that the court of public opinion and this trial is being live streams anyone can go and say you tube and find a stream of this trial do you think this is going to put a n.c. and certainly the tactics that the defense are using do you think this the fact that public opinion is saw is so taken by this trial the so much writing on it will justice ever be served here because this opens both sides up to accusations of a fair trials not being held on a retrial could be needed. well it depends on how we are defining justice i think that it's going to take
9:38 pm
a long time for america to reform its policing as we know on sunday evening dante wright was 20 years old who was killed by a police officer who alleges that she thought that she was teasing him as opposed to shooting him and she had 26 years experience on the bourse and now she has resigned and so just this isn't just what happens to former police officer dared shonan just this is what happens to the residents of minneapolis st paul in also people that live in the other 49 states that are here the well that's it that's an interesting point you make there in our your should we be focusing on this trial it's all is the. is the united states police service on trial here or is it derek show off and then add where to us. where does america go from here.
9:39 pm
i mean i think that this is a moment of reckoning i think america needs to continue asking the difficult questions and so i think the prosecution had a fantastic opening when the prosecution said that this was not a trial for the entire system it was just a trial for mr show and i thought that that was a great strategy however i think the macrocosm of theirs is that it is a trial of what we consider to be fair policing what we consider to be from middle justice ok will be very interesting in that context to keep an eye on what happens next for now though we are out of time such as harris joining us from minnesota thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and your perspective on this trial there was a pleasure thank you. know more hot ash and rocks of rain down on the caribbean

island of st vincents after a 2nd volcanic eruption in less than a week the explosion of less free air is believed to be one of the largest in more than a century and 16000 people have been forced to leave areas calls by but authorities say they're concerned about residents who have refused to move earlier i spoke with ralph conservers the prime minister of the islands of st vincent and the granite scenes he told al jazeera the main problem they're facing is destruction to the water supply. the northern no one turtle. island is quite desolate. almost all the persons have left the day a few had the soldiers who are trying to bridge it out we're trying. to get them out one by one through through the road system and the course gatt by the by the sea. we have 80 odd shelters in operation we have
9:41 pm
