this is news coming to you live from. the u.k. say blood clots. rare side effect of the scene but european and british regulators say the benefits of the job far outweigh the risks to take a closer look it's also coming up india hits another new record of. cases. and other large cases imposed curfews to slow the soaring infection rate. plus a soaring tribute to victims and israeli pilots joined together to fly over for
a fly over to those murdered under the nazi regime for one pilot that includes some of his own ancestors. and a look at how changed technology is reshaping the art market collectors are paying . for digital works. others. good to have you with us we start with yet another setback for the coronavirus vaccine the european medicines agency and his british counterpart have announced there does appear to be a link between the vaccine and a rare but potentially fatal type of blood clot that ye may stop short of changing its recommendation to give the back scene to all ages all the u.k. is a buzzing those under 30 to get
a different show. trying to put to rest any concerns 1st of all i want to start by stating that our safety committee the pharmacovigilance and risk assessment committee of the european medicines agency has confirmed that the benefits of the astra zeneca vaccine in preventing cope with 19 overall outweigh the risks of side effects. the european union's drug regulator the european medicines agency says after a safety assessment of the astra zeneca vaccine they are still encouraging people to get it that's despite finding $169.00 cases of a rare brain blood clot after 34000000 doses the agency says while no clear link has been found they believe the clots are caused by any means response as a result the regulator will be listing the clots as a rare side effect of the astra zeneca vaccine this vaccine has proven to be highly
effective it preventive severe disease and hospitalized patients and it is saving lives vaccination is extremely important in helping us in the fight against covert 19 and we need to use the back scenes we have to protect us from the devastating effects to my it comes as u.k. authorities recommend that the astra zeneca vaccine should not be given to adults under 30 where possible but again they stress the continued use of the vaccine our review has reinforced that the risk of this respite to the side effect remains extremely small. the drug maker itself says the bottom line of the regulators findings is that the astra zeneca vaccine offers a high level of protection against coated 19. well for more now we're joined by your topola she's a member of the european parliament from germany's green party and also a licensed pharmacist thanks for being with us this morning ms polis 1st op would
you recommend to everybody. i think we should differentiate between countries that have several vaccines to choose from and can trees that must rely on astra zeneca so i do understand the decision of the british authorities saying for the under thirty's little use another vaccine that yemen a has clarified that the risk is incredibly small and that the benefits outweigh the risks so if a country only has extras and it should be given to all age groups what do you make of germany re germany which itself is suffering a shortage of myth of vaccines it seems what do you make of germany recommending astra zeneca only to people over 60. will germany has taken the decision to take the lowest possible risk and rick amending astra zeneca over
sixty's and getting the under 60 s. biotech. under sixty's that are being vaccinated today are mostly health care professionals are people working in crowd spaces like for example mass. monster welling's and there are of course we should choose the lowest possible risk i feel my part tend to say to people that say well there's so much risk and stress in a cut attempt to ask them well do you take aspirin or because aspirin also has some sid there are side effects which extremely rare and it's quite comparable to as far as an echo so that's the choice that people should be aware of we prevent a very very serious disease with a vaccine with a very very low risk. the controversy surrounding us percentage has reduced public acceptance of the back scene in europe how damaging is all this to the already
sluggish rollout campaign well 1st of all it's been a communication disaster and i do think that astra zeneca did not do a good job in promising doses to every state's u.k. also the e.u. but also other countries all over the well well not being able to produce enough of the vaccine and if the e.u. had known it in a box that assets and income would not be able to pull through its promises then i probably would have ordered more vaccines from other companies the number of countries in europe are already using the russian v. vaccine germany is about to start negotiations with russia on the vaccine. it hasn't been approved by the by the european medical medicines agency what does this say about unity in the european union that there's
a scramble now for the for that vaccine. well as for jim it has been make clear that it will only be over finally it. gives us the right sation and i think that is the right way to choose because. it does a very thorough examination and i cannot understand the approach of member states saying well never mind about the a.m.a. we just believe that it should be safe because there have people that we haven't heard of anyone dying so i don't understand what benefit there is and relying on data that has not been scrutinized this post thank you very much for talking with us this morning that was used to publish a licensed pharmacist and a member of the european parliament for the green party thank you and so we could

sirens blared across the country for 2 minutes this morning israelis stood in silence and traffic came to a standstill country's leaders took part in a least 3 wreath laying ceremony of the event marks the anniversary of the one $943.00 more so i get an uprising one of the most significant acts of jewish resistance to the whole of it's. israeli in german air forces have been cooperating to honor holocaust victims at one of the camps where jewish people were once murdered one israeli pilot shared his experience of taking part. a joint flyby over germany and the dr concentration camp last year for the 1st time the german live in the israeli air force honored holocaust victims together for this young israeli pilot it was a very personal experience. in the last year in germany specifically the fly over
of an old english was probably the most important thing definitely wasn't one thing that i've done in my army service and one of the most important things i've ever been a part of in my whole life and it was such a such a great symbol of how humans can get over even the worst and the darkest conflicts and the worst things that can happen. especially for me as well my from my grandfather was a pilot in the british air force and in the 2nd world war and on my other side obviously my family was. murdered in the holocaust so for me it was very very special as an active fighter pilot he can't be fully identified he emigrated from steel yet to israel one of his grandfathers was a suspect fire pilot in the royal air force in world war 2 a scorching raids on nazi germany he survived and moved to israel his grandson followed in his footsteps you know when you think about the past and what happened you know in the darkest times 70 years ago. you know i guess the worst enemies
almost and now we're flying over germany together as a tame but i think it really really shows the best side of humankind how we can forgive each other and you know we still remember the storm and what happened and learned about it but. we can move on together and be friends meeting with other young germans was an important part of the joint military training last year another way of keeping the memory of a shared past a lie there's still people in the world. who want us to be destroyed as a country and as a people and i think that remembering what was in the past is the key so that word it won't happen again in the future. be on mars ambassador to the u.k. has been logged out of the embassy in london he said representatives of myanmar's military junta have taken control of the building so this is going to who will cain
. thank you. who is in the building. events of the day chief. embassy. the hunter had attempted to recall the last month after he spoke in support of civilian leader aung san suu kyi and urged for her release from detention this comes as daily protests against the coup become increasingly dangerous at least 15 people were killed across myanmar on wednesday. earlier i spoke with reporter ayman tun to has been covering events in myanmar i began by asking about the reports of more violence in the past 24 hours human touch left me on march short while ago for security reasons what are you hearing about the current situation there. so what we're seeing in the current situation is that it's becoming more
and more dangerous to go out and protest and even though you are still feeling some protest in especially more rural areas people in larger cities are avoiding large gatherings for now in our state in protest in other ways we're seeing social media protests where people have been using political hours into their shoes as a way to show that they still march in spirit over easter we saw people using eggs writing messages on them we're seeing people flying kites but as more and more damage economic damage especially is done during the civil disobedience movement we are seeing a breakdown of health care infrastructure as well as a situation in which banking and cash has become really hard to come by and quite a number of people are suffering economically. military troops continue killing peaceful protesters in myanmar but the demonstrations are continuing nonetheless how long can the protesters keep. i think that's the really big question
in terms of the longevity of this movement and whether or not it can be successful we are starting to see a shift away from massive street demonstrations as i said earlier there are still people who are marching but people have really started becoming more creative in their tactics to display public discontent well also switching their focus or focusing more now on the other pelosi of the civil disobedience movement by such as pressuring into the international community to not engage with the military and to recognize the c.r.p. as the legitimate government of myanmar as well as pressuring economic sanctions as well as not paying taxes to the military and other forms of boycotts and sections that they are able to do within the country. last night we saw myanmar's ambassador
to the u.k. board from entering his own embassy this market new phase of the coup. i think we can see this as a phase during which the military is trying to consolidate power where we've seen that now they've been relatively successful in suppressing at least sort of physical demonstrations of defense and so now they are really turning towards things like internet shutdowns and the sorts of international moves in which they're hoping to suppress the military of the public to organize as well as pressure the international community into recognizing that mathematician a government and so in a situation like that you pay it really becomes a test in which the world will have to wait and see whether or not the british government will recognize the hunter as being able to make these decisions or whether or not they will continue to engage with them and the best that that was
appointed by a civilian elected government journalist ayman turned in bangkok thank you very much. thank you for having me. a turkish court has handed down life sentences to dozens of former soldiers for their alleged involvement in the 2016 failed coup attempt against time out of one's government a total of $497.00 defendants were on trial they'd been on trial since 2017 for attempting to seize the military headquarters in ankara is expected to be one of the last mass trials linked to the failed coup. the 1st judgments were handed down just an hour into proceedings while many high ranking officers received life sentences some soldiers were cleared of all charges only the prosecutions lawyers commented publicly. even now we're still getting wind of people who want to stage crews these prosecutions should be a lesson to them that the offenders have been given the harshest possible sentences
under our legal framework if we still have the death penalty they would have been given that you don't want them and there was a heavy police presence at the court building in ankara with drones hovering above none of the relatives or lawyers of the accused wanted to be interviewed. in the night of the 15th to the 16th of july and 2016 part of the military tried to overthrow the government of president red chip typo to one ankara says u.s. based cleric. was behind the move. since the attempted coup tens of thousands of people have been arrested and more than 100000 civil servants dismissed dozens of cases are still ongoing. the detailed written verdicts of wednesday's court proceedings are still being completed. there were 2 champions league quarter finals 1st legs played on wednesday night by a munich suffered
a $32.00 loss at the hands of. thomas levelled the scores for the defending champions but a big goal settled the result for p.s.g. thomas took his chelsea had the perfect night in porto a 2 nil win perfectly placed for the return leg in london. well these days the art market is going digital with investors spending enormous sums of artworks that exist only on computer networks until now visual art was so easy to copy that didn't make much sense financially but now that's changed and the implications for the art market are huge. the magic word is n f t or non fungible token and it's revolutionizing the art market this technology records the owner's identity in a blog change while the work itself remains publicly visible on the web for anyone to see. so and it is
a technical stand there to make a digital work of art where any did that any file east s. it is unique so you get that token well it may have that that was the artist in size. and that you bought it and it you are the rightful owner in this online gold rush a flying cap sold for $650000.00 but 21st several 1000000. crypto cats were virtual basketball cards sold for millions. and now christie's has got on board auction ing every day is from artist people as its 1st tokenized piece. the sale not only meant recognition for digital art but it's helped christie's reap millions in a win win situation. job it just scared him of us but i think when there is money
at stake people take things seriously so many people who used to not really take this art form seriously are now having a closer look and that's great and of course the artist who created this work will go down in art history on that side so i. can squish timestream. the buyer was a singapore based fund that had made a fortune with cryptocurrency 90 percent of the bidders at christie's were unknown is a new crypto elite divvying up the market. people they're all so right now. that . on to the market. with a really open i don't have much knowledge of the art market and our enemy. and just really i like that could up end the traditional dominance of art galleries and museums when it comes to determining what art is valuable and important for
