4:07 pm
they arrive at you can see the exhaustion in their faces, while some are glad to be home. others say they'll return, but i'm going back, i'm ready to try 100 times again. next summer i intend to go. the kurdish regional government of which our bill is the capital released a statement blaming people smugglers were duping rockies into going to bella luce. the statement promised to crack down on them. in the last few days, they say they were arrested 10 members of a criminal smuggling gang. some of those returning thursday described a horrific experience. those of her, i will never tell you, the situation is so bad. the smugglers using people i've seen people dying before my own eyes. i will not try to travel again. i will not go with. a lot of these people have sold everything they own to get to europe. they are likely to come back to less than they had before. the future for them is blinking on the $341.00. people disembarked on this flight here in our bill. another 90 will disembark in baghdad. now there are more flights in the coming days. how many more is

4:10 pm
to prove their status. but from next week, that's not enough from next week. the government says everyone in lockdown schools open certain essential social services will still be available. people could still receive those benefits as it were, but principally the entire country in lockdown. why? because every other measure the government has tried to bring in has not been enough to stem the tide of new infections, of filling up hospitals of death threats and that sort of thing. that's why the austrian government is decided what is what is decided today. and dominic, what about the situation in germany? because the government is also trying to, to bring back at some steps to bring the coven situation under control. how are things looking well, we've been hearing from loss as either the man in charge of the agency that

4:18 pm
surgery and car st. thank he. the indian government has made a dramatic, you turn on an instance withdrawing 3 controversial farm laws for legislation has triggered nationwide protests that lasted more than a year. the governments introduced the measures last year saying they've modernized the agriculture sector. pharma said the reforms hurts the likelihoods. i minister the ranger moody, telling them to go home. i may apo, today i have come to tell you and the entire nation that we have decided to repeal the 3 laws, how many you will complete the constitutional process of repeating the laws during the parliament session. begin to the end of this month. today i'm asking all of my former friends who have been protesting to return to your homes, your farmland, and your family. as the michelle has more from a processed site where the out because
4:19 pm
a few jelly at one of the 3 sites where farmers have been protesting for nearly a year. what you see around me are temporary structures they set up last year when they decided to camp out until the government revoked the 3 agricultural laws at pharmacy, leave them warsaw and benefit big corporations. now, earlier today, prime minister in the reigns removed the, made a sudden announcement, doing what the farmers have been asking for nearly a year. but these formulas and try just to say they are not willing to go back yet . it is a big tree. they have been congratulating each other, and some of them have even been bursting fire crackers. but they don't necessarily trust the government. they're waiting for the parliament to officially revoke these laws. they also point out that the prime minister in his announcement today missed a few critical points, for example, or nearly $700.00 farmers have died during the course of the protest. the other issue is the issue of guaranteeing farmers a minimum price for their produce at something farmers have been pushing for,
4:20 pm
but did not find mention in the prime minister's speech. the announcement comes at a critical political juncture to states that most of these farmers and protesters come from. that is punjab and not the dish are headed for critical state elections . early next year to day is also interestingly, the birth anniversary of the founder of sic is a, it's a big festival for a community that again has been on the forefront of this protest for nearly a year. let's take a look at how all of this on the folds. the indian parliament passed the laws back in september, reforms and good farmers who marched towards the capital. well, in december, governments met farmers, unions to rights of talks ended in deadlock process, intensifies in january with phases of farmers, stones, new jellies, historic red fords on republic day and in september dies is

4:22 pm
order. but this is only half the battle one because the repeating of the law means the kind of reforms that the government introducing that. but i would investment coming in and the law that they would be increasing productivity and fees in the income and be much more demanding will also be because a lot of them under corporate control. and that is why they had been progressing all these months. and so the, but all i think is being because most everybody should yes, but the other part is that the most demanding minimum price to be paid for them for their cross. and which means that got a good price for a, for all the commodities. but with the minimum support place become like that also every year, but it's not implemented and honest. so that is what the problem was that demanding . and i think got into the incomes is actually the 2nd part of the data struggle
4:23 pm
that the 5 most. so a lot of bridging, so let's wait and see what happens in the students. well exactly, it is all about the next few days, isn't it? because the suggestion that we've been hearing throughout the day is that this law was repealed for political purposes. and unfortunately we have lost our guest, it appears that we have most of into sharma, which is a shame we're going to try and see if you get more on the story. an important story over in north western, in via, let's turn to other, you know, the u. s. congress has the rails a votes on the president's job biden's social safety nets and climate package. minority leader, kevin mccarthy, stoles the final votes with the record long speech that lasted for more than a 1000 years. the house is now expected to vote later on friday. the 1.9 trillion

4:25 pm
congressional bosley office has scored this so essentially have gone through and said, look, what will this course they'll come out said, or course $367000000000.00 over 10 years, adding to the deficit. but the white house has said that they've got the figures wrong. we're going to take a lot more in, in tax revenue, particularly taxes on the wealthy. so they haven't quite scored this right. and the moderate republican, moderate democrat. so assume are we want to see what the cb or says said we believe what the white house is same, we think the will actually get more money and so they throw in their support behind it. so what happens next? well, this will go through the house, it will pass 1.7 trillion, it will then go to the senate. there will be a few amendments that will take some time. will probably get a vote before christmas, december 25th. and then we'll go back to the house and then it's likely to pass there. it will go through the senate and not with any republican support. and it will go through in a simple majority, because they will use a mechanism to do that rather than the 60 votes that they need. but this is a huge step forward for joe biden and his agenda to try and improve the lives of so
