4:10 pm
in yet but i would imagine if the supporters carry on chanting their way they are the police may well be forced to take action but the real story today has i think been what happened to jimmy lie he has been jailed for 12 months but then he received an additional 2 months for taking part in a protest in july the main protest the focus of today's sentencing happened of course in august and we've also learned today that jimmy lie is going to face additional charges under the new national security law remember he's already in jail having been arrested under that legislation now he's going to be charged once more so he faces 3 charges under the new national security law which means of course that he's if convicted going to spend very likely the rest of his life in jail here with the news out from al-jazeera still to come on the program. the attack on hama began on the 24th of march he later some families have fled the

4:18 pm
kremlin spokesman dimitri prescott says any concrete steps will depend on a decision by putin he also says that the sanctions imposed on russia won't. affect russia's domestic economy but he welcomes comments from president biden that both leaders see eye to eye on the need to deescalate tensions between russia and the us a long list of complaints against russian activities is interference into u.s. presidential elections widespread acking the occupation of ukraine jailing of alexei the opposition politician americans called nefarious activities the russians of course deny allegations that their meddling in america that. iran says that it successfully enrich uranium up to 60 percent far beyond the limits set under the terms of the 2050 nuclear deal that comes the day after more

talks were held in vienna aimed at reviving the accord discussions have progressed but were affected by an attack on iran's main nuclear facility last sunday the us president joe biden says that he wants to rejoin the agreement but that iran must 1st reverse its violations teheran for its part wants u.s. sanctions lifted 1st big reports from tehran. iran is doing that because it's a reaction to what they have called the act of sabotage last sunday at their main nuclear facility. iran announced that they would be enriching to 60 percent as well as installing a 1000 more advanced centrifuges now that attack happened on sunday iran said it was nuclear terrorism and the cold in the europeans yesterday to condemn it and actually cuse them of having a weak response now yes that is above the limits in the 2015 nuclear deal but iran has already passed those limits iran has been enriching up to 20 percent uranium
4:20 pm
enrichment since november and that enrichment the increase in resentment was the reaction of the assassination of iran's and the nuclear scientists must in fact result in november if i take you back to 2015 iran was interesting to 20 percent when they signed that deal it was 3.6 percent former president donald trump imposed sanctions in one waited for a year then went up to 4 percent now yesterday the president hassan rouhani said that iran has the ability to pursue 90 percent that's weapons grade clearly concerning for the united states and the europeans well iran is also using this as leverage for those talks 8 people have been killed at a fed ex facility in the u.s. city of indianapolis the company says that it's deeply sad and shocked by the loss of life and confirmed that its employees were among the victims police say the gunman took his own life for more let's go live now to john hendren minneapolis took us through what happened late last night. where police say

4:22 pm
phones so many family members went to the basilica itself because they wanted to find out information about their relatives so as police continue to identify these people eventually we expect to get the names of them. we have already had statements of condemnation and sadness from federally from fedex saying we are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of our team members following the tragic shooting at our fedex ground facility in indianapolis the mayor of indianapolis joe hogg's it said this morning indianapolis residents are confronted with the horrific news of yet another mass shooting and it is the 5th mass shooting in as many weeks and believe it or not despite the pandemic in the united states 2020 was the worst year for gun violence in 20 years president biden last week called the mass shooting problem in america as an international embarrassment. but he's got
4:23 pm
little shot of getting much through congress despite efforts to continue to propose limits on guns in the past congress has passed some limits including on assault weapons that expired and since then congress especially republicans in congress have taken an increasingly broad interpretation of the us 2nd amendment which allows individuals to bear arms so. little legislative action activity is likely to result from this again the 5th shooting in 5 weeks here in the u.s. the 5th mass shooting. i was there as john hendren reporting live from minneapolis many thanks joe police in the united states are facing more protests this time over the fatal shooting of a 13 year old latino boy it happened last month but video of the incident has only just been released the distressing pictures appear to show adam toledo turn to offices with his hands raised before he was shot i did show castro reports
