a 2nd here running to go to brunswick people say they are tired of the disruption. welcome we stop in washington d.c. where a police officer has been killed at the u.s. capitol it comes less than 3 months after a mob assault at the same location u.s. president joe biden said in a statement that he and his wife were heartbroken to learn of the attack and express condolences to the victim's family. the attack happened just after 1 pm local time in washington d.c. at the u.s. capitol the alleged assailant 1st struck 2 police officers with his vehicle and then drove into a nearby security checkpoint barricade the incident occurred about 90 meters from the entrance of the building on the senate side of the capitol close circuit footage of apparently shows the alleged suspect then getting out of the car with
1:02 am
a knife and lunging at officers police then shot the attacker who later died they are trying to discern a motive. it does not appear to be terrorism rar related but obviously all will continue to investigate to see if there's some type of nexus along those lines as a precaution the capitol was put on lockdown congress is currently in recess and no legislators were present officials had recently started removing some of the barriers in the area citing a reduced security risk after the capitol was stormed by a mob on january 6th 5 people died during the riot. a few more joining me now is our u.s. correspondent emily emily welcome some how is life in now what's the situation in washington. yes i mean you said earlier biden and president biden he offered his condolences and meanwhile the car of the suspects the car that
1:03 am
rammed into the northern barricades here was removed from the scene and the national guard has been slow to spot and stationed at different provinces all of the capital so the city really remains on high alert and really we one police officer succumbed to his injuries do we know any more about the condition of the officer who was taken to hospital in this attack. we do actually have x. this is the good news he appears to be in stable condition and he is now recovering up hospital. what about the attacker do we have any clues as to what his motives were or why for. well there's nothing definite as such but apparently he has posted online about fears of the cia and the f.b.i. and so that could indicate maybe mental illness. motive or work mental illness as
1:04 am
a as a cause for why you did this at the same time national media has reported that he was a follower of the nation of islam under such that could indicate will suggest logical motives but at the end of the day the suspect is dead now and so should be very difficult to discern for sure what drove him to this point and i think ordaining in washington many thanks. ok let's take a look now at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. investigators have arrived at the site of taiwan's the deadliest train disaster in decades more than 50 people were killed and more than $140.00 injured when carriages de riot train collided with a truck as it was emerging from a tunnel almost 500 people were on board with a 100 of those didn't have since. protesters in
1:05 am
myanmar have been marching to remember the more than 500 people killed by security forces since the military seized power in a coup in february the junta has also shut down while it's internet service. well there are new hopes of a breakthrough in negotiations over iran's nuclear program washington says it's willing to discuss returning to an international nuclear deal with tehran via indirect negotiations in the austrian capital of vienna an international agreement reached in 20159 to limit iran's nuclear activities to trumpet ministration pulled out of the deal 3 years ago iran has recently presumed in breaching your brownian to well above the agreed limit. and joining me now is daryl kimball executive director of the arms control association daryl
1:06 am
welcome what's the consensus about what advances iran has my on its nuclear program in recent years does tehran pose i right if it right a threat now rather than it did. well it poses a greater threat today than it did in 2018 when the trump administration unilaterally pulled out of this agreement this 2015 deal that had rolled back to ron's nuclear capabilities and since that time since trump pulled out iran has retaliated by exceeding several of the key limits established by the agreement they have increased the amount of enrich uranium the stockpiled they have begun to enrich to higher levels closer to bomb grade but not quite a bomb grade they have begun deploying advanced more advanced kinds of centrifuges they have threatened to reduce cooperation with the international atomic energy
1:07 am
agency but have not quite done so and they're poised to do more if a deal is not reached with united states soon to on arrival the sanctions that were put back in place by the trump ministration so this opportunity for indirect talks next week in vienna i think is a critical opportunity to salvage this agreement and to stop us back from the brink of a nuclear crisis over iran's nuclear capabilities if the stakes are very high however liable is the information international monitors have do we really have a complete and clear picture of iran's nuclear program at this point. well i think we do the iranians have been exceeding the nuclear limits but they have not restricted the i.a.e.a. from having access to their known nuclear facilities and they're still allowing the
1:08 am
agency to access on quick notice some of the other facilities that the agency is concerned about so i think we have very good insight as to what iran's capabilities are. they at the time the 2015 agreement was reached it was estimated that it would take at least one year for iran to amass a sufficient amount of highly enriched uranium to make one bomb and then they'd have to make the actual device but just the nuclear material now that time period is estimated to be somewhere between 3 and 6 months so we've got good insights the problems of iranian capabilities have grown in retaliation for the reimposition of u.s. sanctions. daryl kimball exactly executive director of the arms control association many thanks. thank you.

1:17 am
hello i'm christine it's good to have your company a national shutdown of universities has ended in south africa off to violent protests last month the students' union had called for the shutdown of the country's 26 university until government agreed to cancel all historical student debt now that has not happened but the union says its end of the shutdown often meetings with the minister of universities and other stakeholders now in addition to the cancellation of dates black students all also calling for the government to increase funding for them they say they cannot afford to. for weeks now students across south africa have been taking to the streets fighting against financial exclusion of students the protests started edwards university in
1:18 am
johannesburg more than $6000.00 students were slated to be thrown out because they had accumulated too much tuition dipped you see a whole new is one of them she owes the university over 3000 euros i'm not able to do just that at all of course we're angry i am a 1st generation university attendee my parents didn't go to university especially coming from the community we understand. these opportunities haven't always been us so we are very deliberate and very decisive in saying that this this is not going to be nice to us one more time the 22 year old already received his degree she completed her studies with good grades and now wants to go to grad school to help improve her future career prospects but her course doesn't qualify for government support it is a big deal you know where i come from it's not just about me it's not my dick lee it is my parents it is my family it is my community it is doles who might be you
1:19 am
know looking up to me and saying ok i want to do what she's doing but yeah i know the pressure is definitely thousands of students in south africa in fees to the universities here davits university alone fees worth more than $50000000.00 euros that's almost double the amount that it was 2017 the universities are hoping for the governments to intervene but the big question in the end of the day is can south africa really afford free university education for. the budget for the state runs fast program which covers tuition and offer us a stipend for needy students as more than tripled in the last 5 years yet it's not enough says the head of the university's association the university's depend on the income raised by fees because subsidies and donations are dwindling 50 to 60 percent of the students in the system qualify for this. if education is free for the. question is we really don't have. a
1:20 am
system. we don't have such a system for students of outside of the of the national. student. and that is what we think the government needs to focus on. on a passer by was shot by police during the protests it was clearly anymore city by. tween size had 3 each boiling point despite several requests the minister of education declined to be interviewed by d.w. to see who was lucky the student association managed to raise funds to cover his fees nonetheless she plans to continue demonstrating until everyone has free access to university education. and i'm now joined by southern africa are splendid hadrian krishi filed the reports that you just saw and he joins me now from capetown good to see you adrian so tell us more about this national shutdown which has now ended
1:21 am
so basically the protest started earlier this year already when initially 1st 1st year students try to register for their courses but they could not register for this fast program the state support scheme for poor students because simply the funds where exhausted there was no money there anymore and although the government said well we're working on it we will find a solution some students started protesting then afterwards around about the same time actually some university said we have to exclude some of our students from the classes those that have accumulated so much historical dept that we do not believe that they will ever be able to settle these steps and this is when the whole protest when nationwide we had protests in several big cities happening and it almost escalated a few weeks ago when police used excessive force against peaceful protesters and that was also the time when we saw as we've seen in the report the case of a young man who was just a bison and was shot by
1:22 am
a police bullet right so that national shut down and the process that you have for him to. it came of course as you were saying before the university said that they would be suspending the students who have accumulated all this outstanding mission fees. the universities have now made a turn around tell us more about that. well so basically it's not really a turnaround of the universities only it's kind of a solution they found but it is not really a long term solution so basically they have now well for for the academic year last year basically people who accumulated debt they do not have to pay it back for now so that basically means they just postponing the problem to next year and students keep on accumulating even more dempsey especially those who already have such a huge amount of historical dept will even have more next year and then the whole debate will have to start once again for now it seems several players jump in to solve the problem too to help with these debts student association for example like we've seen in the case of early say hulu in our report the student who was
1:23 am
supported by her student association but also some university said ok for now you do not have to pay that's about $22.00 of the $26.00 public universities in the country but we also understand that the government also put in some money although they have not confirmed that and we do not know how much. so as you were saying. this essentially is the proverbial can being kicked down the road the bigger issue hasn't been solved university education remains inaccessible to the majority of black south africans and observers have say that this is for the excessive facing inequality in the country. right i mean look at the end of the day you have 3 players to the story and you can kind of understand all the stories they all do have a point 1st of all you have students especially those so-called middle missing middle how they're called here those a student whose parents more than $20000.00 euros a year they are not eligible to apply for government funding at the same time many
1:24 am
of the families cannot afford to pay fees that are often $34000.00 euros for one year even at a public university and also the students it's very difficult for them to apply for a loan to cover their for their fees so they have a hard time and you also have other cases like who in our report she basically attends a post grad program that is also not supported by the scheme and because she doesn't have money she would not be able to basically study and this is of course unfair i mean also from my background i studied in germany for me it was given to have free access to education from school to university and enormous privilege so of course i can fully understand her and the students position but on the other hand you also have the university see a basically they are running a business in the end of the day they have to look at their expenditure and their income if they don't get money from student fees they will eventually not be able to pay lecture us and the last play of the government of course and i do sincerely believe that many in government do really want to make university education
1:25 am
accessible for everyone there's no doubt about that the big question here is money south africa is an emerging economy and there is not enough money especially if you look at the current pandemic that made things worse the debt to g.d.p. ratio in south africa is almost 100 percent because of the pandemic so that means all that the country makes in one year that's the amount of debt that this has accumulated already said will be very difficult to pay that back on the one hand and on the other hand you have to make difficult decisions on what do you want to fund students or unemployed people or infrastructure i mean kristie you know it yourself are some of the schools public schools in the country are looking like they're in a terrible. right and in the end of the day of course the government also has to sort of keep an eye on making sure that you have the right amount of graduates and that they find you can't just students you have to make sure they find employment afterwards because otherwise what's the point of reading graduates on the market
1:26 am
right. thank you. that's a museum capsule is home to one of north africa most important weapons the new good in all its beauty is creating a problem for the people that live around its banks they constantly complain of flooding and swarms. on the water but environmentalist have a different problem they say the wetlands have become a dumping ground for construction waste generated by the growing number of building projects in the city natural beauty and dumpsite. both the vacant at the gates of the capital tunis has been degraded for years. and construction projects since the early 1900 tunisia's to 2 entirely new business districts according to government study more than 1800000 cubic metres of solid waste have been disposed of in the lagoon in the last decade. the government is
1:27 am
well aware of the problem. they look cool and there goes daily fillings and this reduced their construction and that dumps if you do nothing it will disappear. which would be dramatic because the lagoon is an important wintering site for about $100000.00 my kotori birds including rare species the government has set up a restoration project but environmentalists are not happy about it. at all costs as normally as unnecessary friends of birds and i'm not against the development project in general but to be against a variant that was presented and excepted which does not take into account all the ecological specificities of the site. the project will involve the deepening of the lagoon a problem say the environmentalists because this will change the character of the

a century so by the grant of ours pandemic has exposed the painfully slow progress in digitise ation in germany many companies quit for employees working from home and schools unable to offer digital learning but things are improving thanks to startups using the crisis to kick stops digital projects that may well last beyond the pandemic. the cafeteria is empty no one can eat here because of strict guidelines that are likely to remain in place for a long time and yet hundreds of employees in this frankfort business complex need their lunch and they'll get it thanks to clips a new app designed to order lunch while strictly adhering to social distancing guidelines customers order and pay by phone their meal is ready for pick up and the lock box just minutes later for the company behind the app the pandemic create it's just the right environment to launch. the crew of our isp and
1:33 am
demi came as a shock for us initially as many of our clients are restaurants and much affected by the lock down but now we have seen that the crisis is actually an accelerator for digital technologies demand for digitalisation is up and for us that's a big chance. the pandemic gave a boost to the startup behind the app because going digital provided a lifeline for its customers such as restaurants that would have otherwise lost even more business although some see they would have invested in new technologies anyway like leading kidder are a mark because in your audience. we've seen that the world is changing and much of what our guests do ordering paying is already happening digitally that's why we have to sided to rule out as canapes technology in all our restaurants so. as new
1:34 am
technologies bring change to established business it remains to be seen what the long term effect might be. when i get a bit more on the state of digitization in germany our reporter chelsea delaney has been speaking to ferdinand fixed and economist at barron's university of applied sciences so they've been to because certainly put a lot of pressure on germany and german businesses to speed up the pace of digitalisation is it working. so far i would say digitalisation is not in a better shape but by international comparison it's not looking overly good so it was a good idea definitely to have in those programs that have been put in place to dampen the effects of the pandemic to have some digital components included in the sense that some support measures knowledge support. in germany which supports venture capital for example financing to start ups and these kind of things so that's going definitely in the right direction we need that. so germany is now in the midst of this 3rd wave of infections the vaccine rollout has been a bit of
1:35 am
a disaster lockdowns are being extended what is the outlook now for the german economy. it obviously all depends on how the pandemic it was right but given what most experts expect that the pandemic slows down substantially over the next few weeks and months the. projections for the. 3 to 4 percent and also for next year so the losses in terms of production that the german economy incurred last year will be recovered at the latest by the end of next year and in that sense it looks like the permanent effects the permanent damage of the of the pandemic is not as pronounced as the 1st expected 1st. from bell and university of applied sciences speaking to. that now from 6 known for its well beaten chef the pandemic of fred coax out of work in
