call to halt its military buildup for ukraine's border as the u.s. stresses its commitment to kiev hospital mortuaries run out of space in india which is again reported the world's highest daily number of covert cases and water runs short in sindh vincent where a volcano continues to erupt covering the caribbean island in ash and contaminating reservoirs i'm german ash with the sports chelsea air into the champions league is semifinals and i'll be joined by paris our man who knocked out holders by munich. welcome to the news hour we begin in the u.s. where president joe biden has decided to withdraw all remaining american troops from afghanistan by september the 11th a u.s. official says biden will announce the plans on wednesday will around 2 and
12:02 am
a half hours and u.s. troops are still in afghanistan down from a peak of more than 100000 in 2011. decision would miss the may 1st deadline for the withdrawal agreed with the taliban by the trumpet ministration september the 11th this year is the 20th anniversary of the $911.00 attacks by al qaida which led to the u.s. invasion of afghanistan and america's longest war the afghan. government says it respects any u.s. troop decision stating that its forces have recently conducted close to 98 percent of operations independently but it's also been announced that turkey will host a high level peace on the in istanbul later this month to to jumpstart efforts to try and end the war the taliban has already said they won't be taking part and let's cross to mike hanna now in washington so mike do we have any more details on why the you know why the by administration plans to delay the troop withdrawal from
12:03 am
afghanistan. but we don't have any direct information on that although it is known that many within the pentagon were concerned about that timeline that president trump had agreed to last year which is may the 1st they believe that this was too soon they needed more time in order to form an effective drawing down of troops within afghanistan so certainly the pentagon's advice it would appear was that it extended the timeline president biden now likely to announce tomorrow that date of september 11th by which time the troop withdrawal will be complete that's a significant date obviously the 20th anniversary of the terror attack on the world trade center here in the united states so president biden very clearly intent on a step issuing a clear line when the troops will be withdrawn in the hope that this or prevent any
12:04 am
action by taliban which has threatened to take action against u.s. troops should they not pull out by that agreed date of may the 1st. and of course the other big development that is he has the attention of the international community right now is that build up of russian troops on the border with ukraine president joe biden has spoken directly with putin about that now what do we know about the his conversation there with the russian president. well 1st of all what we do not know is who initiated the call the press secretary would not be drawn on that particular issue however we do know that the president biden spoke forcefully it is said to the russian president in terms of his actions on the border with crimea asking him to deescalate tensions in that particular reason region president bryden also reportedly brought up the issue of russian interference in u.s.
12:05 am
elections criticizing the russian president strongly for that particular case but in another development as well it is said that president biden is asked for a summit meeting with president putin at some stage in the coming months in a 3rd country now significantly it's reported from the kremlin that president putin's shortly afterwards put a phone call in to the finnish prime minister it must be remembered that when the president from met putin it was in finland so the possibility open there's a venue cannot be ruled out at this particular point so president biden harshly critical of this said of the russian president but at the same time attempting to get some kind of dialogue going through a meeting in a 3rd country thanks very much with the latest from washington i can or. so as you were hearing from mike there the u.s. is offering its full support for ukraine over the escalating tensions with russia nato has also called on russia to hold its military build out near the ukrainian border describing it as deeply concerning ukraine estimates about 40000 troops and
12:06 am
massing around voronezh to its northeast and another 40000 in crimea to the south the u.s. is sending 2 of its warships to the nearby black sea this week russia has told the ships to stay well away from crimea for quote their own good russia's defense minister says it's taking measures to respond to what it calls threatening military action by nato including troop exercises and combat readiness checks 14000 people have been killed in the donbass region of eastern ukraine over the past 7 years with frequent violations to the cease fire that supposed to be in place as action butler reports. unjustified and unexplained was how the head of nato described russia's buildup of troops on its border with ukraine after meeting with ukraine's foreign minister in brussels russia must and this military buildup in and
12:07 am
around ukraine stop its provocations on the escalate immediately. russia has deployed naval ships heavy armor and tens of thousands of troops in recent weeks violence is risen between russian backed separatists and ukrainian forces in ukraine's east ukraine's foreign minister said nato must respond to what he called a threat of war by gathering today we try to avoid the mistake that was made in 2014 when russia was ready to act swiftly and pursue its military goals in crimea and gone bust while our western partners were considering their reactions to what was happening on the ground. russia will not be able to catch anyone by surprise anymore we labor also discussed the situation with the u.s. secretary of state is on a 3 day visit to proselytise the u.s.
12:08 am
will station an extra $500.00 troops in germany we're seeing unfortunately. record taking over in providing americans want to come to her we're now seeing the largest concentration. of russian forces unpretty border since 2014 kremlin officials say the troops are on a training exercise and the ukraine has been acting provocatively some analysts say vladimir putin is less interested in conflict than in challenging washington where we have seen over the last few months is a breakdown of the u.s. russia and relation. by the mystery of. power and i think putin is basically trying to duck and he's testing be by going to be sufficient to see how far i'd be willing to go on john for they really are on russia the white house says u.s. president biden has called russia's leader to urge a deescalation of tensions the kiev the best way to end the conflict with russia
12:09 am
would be food nato to 1st track its request for membership of the alliance sending a clear message to moscow the ukraine sovereignty could not be threatened in such a bottler al-jazeera paris. or. global affairs analyst who has previously a spokesman for the organization for security and cooperation in europe based in ukraine joins me now from vancouver island so what russia have to gain from activating or escalating hostilities in the region. well you know it's very difficult to get into mr putin's mind but with the build up of so many troops and so much military hardware it's unprecedented and i think there are several objectives here possible objectives one is to put more pressure on ukraine to agree to the 2015 minutes framework which by the way is much more in russia's favor because it does call for things like somebody autonomy they don't boss local
12:10 am
elections that sort of thing and i think also it's a way to send a test to the bottom an administration that this is the kind of post code new world order that russia sees is that it can do whatever it wants when it chooses and very similarly i think acting very much like china right now being the strongman and defining a kind of sphere of influence that intends to pursue and then one more thing of course some russia is always proclaiming that it has the right to defend russian speaking citizens or russian citizens in the past 2 years given out 650000 passports to people in the so this is really a kind of passport protectorate of russia that it intends to defend. what can the find an administration do. well i will say this is that words have been crn just aren't enough it didn't work in the current situation in myanmar and it start working in the current situation and in russia i think they have to go pretty much
12:11 am
for the nuclear option and that would be really implementing those really strict financial sanctions including possibly temporarily at least removing russia from the international banking system the so-called swift payment system but also making it very difficult for the people immediately in putin's circle the oligarchs to do things like property transactions in london as you know billions of dollars have been spent there but russian oligarchs to to send their kids to school by property if that were to be cut off i'm sure mr putin would get several phone calls right away but it won't cause him to change his current position. well i think the only thing that will cause them to some restraint is the idea of some kind of deal over minsk is made because remember he's also constrained in the guards that they're having a big fight with coverage right now the economy is not performing well and taking
12:12 am
over the done by one of the most bomb dog areas in the world would be very very costly to the russian economy and then finally miriam is that this kind of foreign adventurism the past in crimea things like that just does not give the popularity boost that it once did at home and don't forget there are duma elections coming up later this year what about. crane wants to try and initiate a membership proceedings that's not likely to happen is it. with all due respect to president zelinsky and his foreign minister i know i think this is a nonstarter i call it the nuclear option if nato were to expand its. footprint if you will right to the border of russia russia will take very very strong action including military intervention that isn't the way to go i think is the steps i may mention previously would be more like it and one more thing miriam if i can the other objective probably mr putin's mind to kind of subtly get more control over
12:13 am
these areas too is to deploy russian so-called peacekeepers would look sort of benign but would be another way of securing that area to be under russia's control thank you so much michael bostick you for joining us today on the news hour appreciate it my pleasure thank you so have for you on this news hour from london johnson and johnson delays the rollout of its vaccine in europe the u.s. investigates blood clots in 6 women. to minnesota resign over the shooting of 20 year old dante right on sunday as the defense begins its case in the trial of the death of george foley and in sport the taiwanese baseball player has been subjected to racist abuse often making a mistake during the game. india has again reported the world's highest daily tally of new code that infections more

over the past week i put it in the state of chuck 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 teams 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 r.t. p.c.r. test of going down that containment measures aren't being imposed properly and that there is resistance to other containment measures including attacks on health care workers because these issues and chapters 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 state maharashtra where medical teams which were sent there also said that there was a lack of oxygen supply and even malfunctioning ventilators meanwhile turkey's

urging people to keep an eye out for symptoms pay attention do you have symptoms headache you have shortness of breath chest discomfort do you have anything that resembles a neurological syndrome and obviously if you have something as serious as a seizure i mean you that's pretty clear but there is concern that this will. we further increase vaccine hesitancy with more than a 3rd of people telling pollsters they will wait to take the shot or take it all lee if it is required and many say they simply won't take it ever officials say they expect the delay to last just days and the biden ministration says it won't impact their overall goal for how many shots are administered but what they uncover about this could have a huge impact on the rest of the globe as many countries are counting on this vaccine to get them past the pandemic pedicle pain al-jazeera silver spring maryland. the minnesota police officer fatally shot 20 year old unarmed black man

dante wright has resigned along with the brooklyn center's police chief dante riots was shot on sunday after being pulled over for an expired registration not far from where george floyd was shot. the former police chief tim gannon can possibly zines shortly after local council passed a resolution to dismiss them gannon says pasta mistook her for a taser when she shot right well those are the latest developments that so far in civil rights attorney benjamin crump has spoken about his disbelief while appearing alongside the families of dante rice and george floyd in minneapolis. served our current not. better many of america's furrowed or.

12:21 am
justified in pain in george floyd's the ground during what he described as frantic resistance broad's opinion is in contradiction to the testimonies of several top many police officials including the city's police chief who said show then used excessive force and went against it please practice and training broad says officers don't have to wait for something to happen they need to have a reasonable fear that there's a threat and then adjust their actions accordingly for a police officer show than is on trial for murder and manslaughter and knelt on floyd's neck for more than 9 minutes during his arrest during arrest and 2020. i felt. it was justified it was acting with objective reasonable miss following many police department policy and current standards of law enforcement and interactions with mr ford so it's easy to judge in an office on officers
12:22 am
conduct it's more of a challenge to again put yourself in your future to try to make it evaluation through what they are feeling what they're sensing the fear they have and then make a determination and john hendren is live for us outside the court in minneapolis tell us more about the testimony we've heard so far today and the sort of teles of the arguments that the defense team is focusing on. well day 12 began with the prosecution saying the state of minnesota rested its case with that launch the beginning of the defense testimony and what you heard was a series of police officers and medical experts as mentally just contradicting everything we've heard for the past 2 weeks they wasted no time in putting george floyd on in trial turning the attention from derek show when the man of cuties the
12:23 am
murdering floyd to the man he is accused of murdering and they begin with arrest video not from this past may 25th when floyd died from a year prior to that and what they were trying to show was that george floyd was allegedly taking a drug while he had his back to the police officer was trying to arrest him and then allegedly a paramedic says that he acknowledged that he had done so that he had taken drugs on that occasion and what they were trying to show was that he had a habit of resisting arrest and a habit of popping drugs just before the the arrest happened and that's important because the defense argument in this case is that derek children didn't kill george floyd but that george floyd died of a combination of drugs and a bad heart condition so that is what the testimony we're hearing now and then what you heard there was their star witness of the day that's very broad arguing as you heard there that direction did nothing wrong well the prosecution came back on him
12:24 am
hard in the cross-examination getting him to acknowledge after he 1st said that. that was not a use of force and pushing george floor to the ground like that and putting his knee on him cross-examine or said in fact if it causes pain that is use of force right and brought acknowledge that and then the prosecutor also pushed back and said look. george floyd you took one of the officers took his posts. and after that he was cleared. not resisting arrest in fact he appeared to be dead and braun acknowledged that at that point the officer show over and was holding floyd down when he wasn't resisting arrest so we're going to hear testimony like this are out the week but the goal of the defense is to show that direction over there was not the direct cause of the death of george floyd and that his hold of george floyd for 9 and a half minutes with his knee on his neck was appropriate. all right and so what about the rest of the trial john what are we expecting in the coming week and of
12:25 am
course. then we have clarity on whether or not the defense will be prepared to put doubt show the not. that is the big question nobody really knows but in the case of say o.j. simpson there was so much damning evidence against him that he had to get up and prosecute and a lot of legal observers are saying that's what's happening in this case of the prosecution's case is extraordinarily strong and that there will be pressure on the defense to put derek chauvet on the stand that won't happen for a few days the judge says he believes the defense will be able to wrap my thursday or friday of this week that's for a faster than the 2 weeks and one day the prosecution took and the judge said he expects to have closing arguments as soon as monday and when that happens he says he's going to sequester the jury that is to isolate them will be in a hotel in
12:26 am
a place where they cannot have access to outside media and they will be guarded during that time it also serves to accelerate their deliberations but whether or not derek chauvin will testify that we don't know thank you very much john hendren in minneapolis well joseph daly is emerson's professor at mitchell hamlin school of law and actually taught defense attorney and he joins us via skype from minneapolis could i start by getting you all sots on what john was saying there about barry broad being the star witness. the use of force expert basically supporting the defense's argument that barrett show then did use reasonable force in line with training how do you think is that plausible to the jerry when show then former colleagues including the city's police chief in a diary around said that using any to pin someone to the floor was of course not part of their training ethics or valleys. it's it's not plausible in my mind however it's necessary because the police officer
12:27 am
who's trying to restrain someone can only use reasonable force and this is a former police officer who know teachers has always taught our servers how to use force and now as an advisor on the country to various police departments and mr supply solicited his opinion is important but how do you deal with 9 units in 29 seconds is still problem for the defense you. taught nelson the defense attorney i know it was a while ago now what do you make earth. the task that he now has at of him because we've heard from medical examiners police experts over the past few weeks does he is the defense's case facing an uphill struggle now. but the defense has been facing an uphill struggle from the moment that video is made. it is
12:28 am
so emotional and so impactful and so shocking to anyone who looks including the jurors but. it's possible that the defense that he's setting out which is he was trained this way this is how they trained the minneapolis police can be something that resonates with the jury in the sense that. we're not going to find him guilty of murder in the 2nd degree hyatt's currently shurtleff maybe that be something lesser that they'll come up with. how difficult is it going to be for nelson to overcome repeated testimony from medical examiners saying that george floyd died because he couldn't breathe because he was pinned to the ground on his front causing a lack of oxygen on mentioning a footage that that was also very powerful. if it's
12:29 am
going to be difficult but the actual had been county medical examiner got her into bigger actually in some ways supports the theory of the defense which is that mr floyd died of a heart attack over the rib me of our having friends and all and inserted means in the system and then struggling like he did it caused problems with his heart this yr of the kids for the prosecution is his oxygen was cut out of the diapers fix you so when they bring in the medical experts who is are going to do. starting tomorrow i'm sure in real genuine medical experts who are oppressive and have a different view of the car the death that it will be a valuable defense. thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us just have to really m.r. says professor mitchell hamlin school of law you are convict you. well joe biden has joined congressional leaders and paying their respects to billy evans
