5:08 pm
they did say they need to step up joint efforts to prevent people making the dangerous journey. it's here from andrew simmons. he is on the french side of the english channel and kelly, they were out a half way across. we think to england, the white cliffs of dover, ahead of them, the sea was calmer at the time that it is right now. but nevertheless, it was far too much for the tiny, small, a very frail boat flimsy it capsized. it's believed that deflated the people were in the water. it was bitterly cold and they, well, they stood no chance. emmanuel makram, the french president, has said security all along the coastline is fairly intense and they're doing their very level best. but something like 25000 people have crossed this channel this year alone, and that's triple the number of the previous year. so the situation is described by
5:09 pm
one charity dealing with the immigrants coming here all the time and rounded up and, and sent to a shelter has described it really as not just the responsibility of the criminal gangs. the people smugglers are who are being criticized so heavily by politicians, but also by the french and the british governments for not doing enough to dissuade these people and give them a legal form of crossing to get to the u. k. and speaking of the u. k poll brennan now in dover, on that side of the english channel and tell us what you've been seeing there a since this morning will. what we've had 2 boats arrived this morning that i'm aware of certainly here at dover. the arriving before dawn, one at 430 a. m one at around $530.00 a. m. bringing around 40 refugees, stroke migrants at this part of the coast line. and they were being processed in an

5:11 pm
aspects of this narrow, 30 mile crossing is that it's so close that you can see it. but it is so busy with large tankers and devilishly fiendish currents that it's a very, very dangerous crossing it. and that the, the closeness is effectively a mirage. thank you, paul bernard, for that report from dover in the u. k. l sir, on 300 migrants have been rescued at c over night by the italian coast guard crew. say the boat was in trouble because of the large number of people on board in the rough conditions at sea. it was some 20 kilometers from the island of land produced a frequent arrival point 4 microns trying to reach europe. italy has seen a sharp increase in people coming by boat in just a recent weeks. now european union representatives are in the gaza strip to discuss humanitarian conditions. the e q does contribute to the social welfare allowances of people in gaza, but protest is outside un office to say they haven't received any funds in the last 6 months union, i'll fire spoke to the head of the use delegation deficit set as $1300000000.00 us

5:13 pm
with the exception of the amount which i just authorized about one month ago, salaries and pensions of $50000000.00 for the p. a. that however, that does not explain why nothing has been paid to the poor families and garza entered the west bank into the 20 check the world. whether next and then fears, glory for the lives of thousands of russian miners trapped down the shaft in siberia and marching in their honor rallies held in sudan to remember, the process is killed since the military power. ah is going to be more flooding reported. i think the foss at the time, and down through the peninsula of malaysia and down to what singapore and that same areas, i get more right in the next day or so. the ne, one student hans,

5:17 pm
called for help from other states, germany and tougher restrictions last week to curb the outbreak more with dominant cain in berlin now. so 2 things that dominic, one, this death toll climbing up over a 100000. and then the fact that germany, which took in patients from the netherlands for example, now needing to ask for help themselves. the other 2 things are connected, kemal. why? because what's happening right? now is, if you believe government ministers, a pandemic of the un vaccinated, many of the hospitals are filling up with people who have not been vaccinated and have caught the delta version of the corona virus. which, as we know, is much more infectious and proved to be much more dangerous once it's inside people's systems. and so those unvaccinated people all coming to hospital pretty much at the same time and giving those hospitals little option other than to go
5:18 pm
into tree arch mode. certainly that's the case in one state in germany, in the state of saxony. but other states to have put themselves in what they call a catastrophic situation. so as to be able to release the funds and try to deal with the problem. but it is the reality that with hospitals filling up, they can't find enough places. and so they're asking europe and allies to take in some of their patients. and it's a somber day because that total, that death toll over a $100000.00 now. and it has seemed, in the course of this week that it's one somber stat after another. it's not that long ago that 5000000 cases was reached and it's now 5 and a half 1000000 cases. it's not that long ago that the highest ever infections per day was around $65000.00 today. it's $75000.00 plus. so lots of sombre statistics around in the course of this last week. but the one reality is that

5:20 pm
accidents. there was one in 2004 where a me say an explosion killed 13 people. and unfortunately, these sort of accidents are not unusual in russia is mining sector is very, i was a very bad record when it comes to safety standards is monitoring of safety standards and the poor maintenance of this old sort of soviet era equipment. so these sort of accidents happen more frequently and frequently than it than they would elsewhere in the world. in sedan, security forces have used to tear gas to disperse people, holding rallies to honor protested, chilled during demonstration. last month was in the district quoted, fun province. in october, the 41 people were killed with security forces. the voice denied using live fire on protest as prime minister of the landmark as ordered an investigation. after he was reinstated, he signed to deal with the military on sunday. it's april morgan,
5:21 pm

5:22 pm
and people are saying that they do not trust the ministry to owner that agreement, especially since they say that the constitutional declaration, which was time between the force of freedom and change coalition, the civilian coalition and the army has been fight line. so many of them are saying that this is a chance for them to express their anger at the fact that that agreement has been put aside at the fact that prime minister has decided to side with the army. and the fact that this democratic transition that was under way has been halted or rubbed by the military. and the fact that at least 41 people have died more than 200 have been entered into pro, has demanding for them. return back to the path of democracy to transition our reports into allegations of abuse committed under former gambia president. yet had jama as recommended criminal charges be laid against those responsible. the dam is truth. reconciliation and reparations commission handed the report to john his successor, president obama barrow. the commission heard claims of state sanctioned torture, death, squads, rape, and which hunts during jimmy's 22 year reign. nicholas huck reported extensively

5:25 pm
a sense that people now want to go further than just express their grievances, but want to see the rule of law being enacted and justice being served. but in this, this, this report comes just weeks before the presidential elections. and in this bizarre twist of plot, you remember adam, borrow, who, who was the head of this coalition, that one the last elections against j a. jamie will now he's in alliance with judge, i'm his political party. he this fight at the time saying that he would not run for a 3rd a 2nd term. well, now he's running for reelection. there are other candidates, some of them that have been tortured by a security forces under yay edge army. and they clearly want to see a step taken further. now, according to the t r r c, the truth reconciliation repair, reparation commission. adam barrow has 30 days to enact or whatever they they
