10:02 am
a 20 year old want a right says that she confused her gun with a taser tensions in minneapolis were already running high before this latest incident a white former police officer dark chauvinists currently on trial there charged with the murder of george floyd the president is appealing for peace. the last moments of don't have rights life be courted by the body calm of the police officer who fatally shot him. 20 year old reuters arrested during a traffic stop. he struggles free and gets back in the car then. police say the footage shows that the officer used her gun by mistake. as i watch the video and listen to the officers commands is my belief that the officer had the
10:03 am
intention to deploy their taser but instead shot mr wright with a single bullet this appears to me from what i viewed in the officer's reaction in distress immediately after that this was an accidental discharge there resulted in the tragic death of mr wright. angus' spilled out onto the streets hours off the rights killing. a dusk to dawn curfew was imposed to stop further on rest that protesters gathered for a 2nd night in the suburbs of minneapolis outraged by yet another death of a black man at the hands of a police officer. called president joe biden appealed for calm. we do know that the brain trauma is just the black community in that environment is real serious and consequential but
10:04 am
it's just not justified violence and or looting. but the shooting of dante wright has fueled tensions in a city already on edge very now the tourist case not far from where wright was shot direct shows in the officer who killed george floyd he's on trial for murder and let's get more we're joined by sloane martin who is a reporter and anchor for a local radio station in the area in minneapolis thank you so much for joining us there's anger on the streets as we've been seeing after this latest killing what's happening walk us through it. well things have been quite calm tonight to of but that was after a pretty large crowd dispersed and there was tear gas put off by police those non-lethal munitions as well to try and disperse the crowd state officials put in a curfew for 3 counties in the twin cities metro area from 7 pm to 6 am so still
10:05 am
several more hours left in this curfew to try and make sure that damage to property and any other violence is kept to a minimum but we do know that several 1000 people were out again in brooklyn center there were some other break ins reported in other spots in the twin cities including in south minneapolis where that woods an area that was very badly hit in the aftermath of george floyd's death but protesters demanding justice in this case even though there was the quick release of the police body camera video there really is a really strong call for reform in policing in in minnesota absolutely and we know for the officers part you know the claim there is that the officer intended to reach for the taser instead reached for the gun i like to ask you know to to p.r. people buying not there on the ground and has that claim done anything to deescalate the situation. i don't know if it's a matter of if people are buying it or not i think it further lends evidence to
10:06 am
what protesters have been saying about the overall reform of policing that it can't be acceptable that a mistake like this which in minneapolis mayor jacob frye called a tragic but careless mistake could lead to someone losing their life in a routine strap and traffic stop 1st of all and 2nd of all in a case where the warrant that was out in his name was for a misdemeanor offense and that let ending up in a fatal situation is some it's very difficult for people to accept so even though you hear in the body camera video where the officer who's a 26 year police veteran this is not someone that is new this is someone who also has been a leader in their police union who has helped defend other officers who have been an officer involved shootings that she would know her way around being a police officer so to other people in this community that's very alarming and that's why they are continuing to be very vocal about wanting concrete change they
10:07 am
said you know law enforcement officials state lawmakers for example the governor have had almost a year now since floyd died that something should happen and here's another example and they think that this should have been avoided absolutely sloan martin reporter and anchor at. news radio and minneapolis minnesota thank you. thank you. let's take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world one person has been killed any policeman injured in a shooting at a high school in knoxville tennessee gunfire was exchanged when officers approached a male suspect hiding in a bathroom 3 other students at the same school have died in conflated incidents this year. russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov has said that he expects the international deal limiting iran's nuclear program to be saved speaking after talks with his iranian counterpart lavrov said that iran showed willingness if the u.s.
10:08 am
of held its agreements to laugh it off also criticizing the e.u. for imposing sanctions on iran during ongoing talks on reviving the nuclear agreement. u.s. defense secretary lloyd austin has arrived in berlin for high level talks he will meet with his german counterpart on a quote from karrenbauer and other top officials also and is the highest ranking member of the biden and ministration to visit germany's far. japan has announced that it will start releasing massive amounts of contaminated water from the fukushima nuclear power plant into the sea now the water has been stored in tanks at the plant since it was just dried by a tsunami in an earthquake in 2011 japan says that its decision was unavoidable about the water will be diluted to meet international standards before it's released in about 2 years time japan's neighbors south korea and china have
10:09 am
condemned the proposal as have an environmental groups and local fishing communities. let's bring in john berney a senior nuclear specialist at greenpeace he's joining us from scotland welcome to the program and thank you for joining us your reaction to this move in the water here is reportedly going to be treated deluded can it be safe. no absolutely not and the japanese government and the owner of the site took electric current showed over the years they cannot be trusted with their assurances these discharges ability to start in 2 years' time but it's at least 30 years of nuclear waste dump in the pacific will result they say it's unavoidable for their part so i mean what do you make of that claim and do you see an alternate way to potentially deal with the problem. the clear alternative as existed for years and the long term storage we forced her to to admit to those 90 the fact lance bass on the site was
10:10 am
available in fact the government school committee that investigated this issue including last year that line would be available outside to smoke daiichi nuclear plant so the 2022 idea that is running at space is a myth and it just serves the interests of the government that wants to basically dump this problem into the pacific ok and we've heard that neighbors are reacting south korea china for example this decision might presumably have far reaching consequences for nations such as those just walk us through what those might be. so all the reader activity that will be released different types of radioactive materials we've got to tritium which a percentage of which becomes organically very good cells human cells their cells but other redirect device looks like stored in $1000.00 which would be released by these discharges concentrates in the bones of course fish in humans increasing
10:11 am
cancer rates. of the communities in korea china that reports to this as well as in japan itself know that this is an ongoing threat that must be stopped so what you're going to see i think look good coming weeks months and even years is increasing opposition to the japanese government's decision and i remain optimistic actually that we can stop the us what does it mean for humans. so any reader activity this list as there aren't will have a concert obviously depends what type or we do it to the t. o. that we used to do garment by you cumulate for example in seafood japan korea or china the last see through it see wheat that will become contaminated and that increases the risk doesn't mean there's an inevitability that is guaranteed that you will have a health advantage cancer free but it increases the radiation burden and that's not acceptable. john berney senior nuclear specialist at greenpeace thank you so much
10:12 am
for joining us to share your view on this move from the japanese government that has been announced we appreciate it. world leaders have condemned russia's most recent military activity in and around ukraine the g. 7 group of advanced nations says that it's deeply concerned by what it calls russian provocations ukraine accuses moscow of sending thousands of troops to its eastern border in the crimean peninsula. kiev and moscow have traded blame over the worsening situation in the donbass region ukrainian troops have fought pro russian separatists since 2014 clashes in the region have become more frequent and there are fears that the result conflicts between the 2 sides could flare up again. a russian military camps set up suddenly close to russia's border with ukraine witnesses have reported seeing rows of tanks in the area and artillery being moved
10:13 am
by train and leaders in europe and the u.s. are trying to find out why. russia is not denying the troop movements but says it's not threatening anyone. or spot over there it's not receiving their questions are being asked what is it that the russian federation is doing on the border with ukraine to get out of the answer is very simple we live there it is our country. some kremlin figures have gone further setting out conditions for a possible russian intervention against its neighbor which a beginning of military actions is the beginning of the end of ukraine. the build up seems to be russia's biggest along the ukrainian border in 7 years. that was when fighting between pro russian separatists and ukrainian troops 1st erupted in ukraine's east more than 14000 people have since died in that conflict which has yet to be resolved. ukraine's president volo dimmers alinsky recently
10:14 am
visited frontline troops he's called on nato to put his country on a pathway to join the military bloc something moscow has called an acceptable. meanwhile washington is sending warships to the region and says it's closely watching the situation well 1st let me say we are concerned as i've said in the past but we've been of course watching it over the course of the weekend about the increasing aggression of russian forces on the border secretary blinken and secretary austin are in brussels this week meeting with their nato partners and we will of course i'm sure this will be a topic of discussion the coming week could well decide whether the tensions in ukraine escalate further into the biden administration's 1st international crisis and for more i am joined now by
10:15 am
a correspondent teri schultz who is standing by with a view from brussels terry walk us through efforts to deescalate the situation. good morning sarah well i think this last minute dash by the u.s. secretary of state to brussels especially when the defense secretary was already scheduled to be here underscores just what a worrisome and delicate situation this is ukraine has called a meeting of the nato ukraine commission so they will be meeting today at nato headquarters within a couple of hours and the secretary of state i would expect will join them so certainly high level meetings called at the last minute tells all of us that everyone is very very worried about the situation the g. 7 and the e.u. high representative also put out a statement yesterday calling on russia to cease provocations and you know earlier germany and france came under quite a bit of criticism for saying that both sides should deescalate that certainly not what we're hearing now what goes through what's expected from this butin today
10:16 am
terry. yes this is the general body that handles all nato relations with ukraine i mean that means cooperative exercises on training of armed forces but certainly today called by the ukrainian government it's going to focus on this buildup of russian troops foreign minister clipper will also meet secretary-general stoltenberg and we'll be hearing from them i would expect that the ukrainian foreign minister will we iterate his country's desire for nato membership to be speeded up nato has been on a very slow path to membership now for decades and at times the ukrainian population has not wanted to to move forward on that now the government is certainly of one mind it wants nato to spread its protective umbrella over ukraine which of course is problematic in all kinds of ways because part of that country is occupied by some russian forces there in the east we're hearing a lot of condemnation a lot of tough talk you know we heard in our piece for example to press secretary
10:17 am
at the white house expressing concern the secretary of state anthony blinken going one step for further warning on sunday that if russia acts recklessly or aggressively there will be costs there will be consequences what is he talking about what could that mean. well the fact that he doesn't spell out the costs and consequences again makes clear how difficult this situation is every single time the alliance does anything to reassure ukraine to to train ukrainian forces russia calls it a provocation and says this is more justification for building up these troops on the border russia portrays this as a potential effort to invade russia so it's a very very fine line and certainly nato's plan a b. and c. is deterrence so when that's not working they really have to get together and decide what to do there are nato forces in the baltic countries and poland that have been built up since the 2014 russian invasion of ukraine nobody expects to
10:18 am
have to use them but that's that's why they're there just in case i suspect the nato secretary general will be getting some very pointed questions today about exactly what kind of plans could work if deterrence is not effective absolutely in terry we know you'll be monitoring the situation in brussels today as these diplomatic efforts really kick into high gear. back in with you thank you so much for the view from brussels. german chancellor angela merkel says the latest wave of infections is proving the toughest yet in the corona virus pandemic germany registered 10000 new infections on tuesday intensive care units are under strain and a leading health authority warns that hospitals could become overwhelmed unless stricter measures are put in place the government is asking parliament to pass a bill that would for the 1st time prescribe a unified national measures. well at present there's
10:19 am
a patchwork of measures across germany's federal states the new law would oblige all regions to implement the so-called emergency brake it would only be activated if the 7 day incidence rate exceeds $100.00 cases per 100000 people a curfew between the hours of 9 pm and 5 am would then be imposed and all non-essential shops would be closed let's bring in chief political editor michelle acushla michelle why has this national solution become so important for the government. because what looks like a set of measures jotted down on the piece of paper and then to be implemented nationwide is something that has failed to materialize in over a year of the pandemic where the 16 states sat the tree dozens of times virtually with the german chancellor and couldn't find a unitary approach and this is now it can be seen as and that america also responds
10:20 am
to states acting differently every single time after they've agreed on something and to try and reinstill some confidence in germany being able to act in the same fashion across the country and this in the face of the 3rd wave so it's a confidence building measure at the very least and it would be nice 1st unitary response at best ok how is the law being received and what needs to happen for it to get approved. well 1st of all the cabinet has already pretty much done and dusted the draft law now parliament's needs to agree that it wants to put this on track fast and then it looks like the upper house of parliament essentially the buddhists are where those 16 states would have to agree would also prove this is a war this doesn't just sound like it takes time it does in fact take time raising
10:21 am
many questions whether this can come fast enough at the very least it will take until the end of the week but it could take yet another couple of weeks and that's what the experts here and many are fearing as those intensive care units and units are filling up ok. really interesting stuff there and i'd like to drill down a little bit deeper we're actually going to look at the situation for merkel's party right now in the country michel is going to stick with us in order to respond to the reporting that we have here about the country governing conservatives focusing on a disagreement about their candidate for chancellor in national elections the september when angela merkel will no longer be running the conservative bloc made up of the see the u.n. c.s.u. parties are split over whether it should be the current state premier of north rhine-westphalia army lash it or the c.s. use marcus or have a look. i mean lash it versus marcus the race to be the next conservative
10:22 am
candidate to run for german chancellor is turning into an old fashioned power struggle on sunday the 2 men agreed the decision should come soon and to respect it whoever is chosen. but less than a day later battle lines seem to have been drawn on monday morning at the recently elected c.d.u. leader held meetings with his party's executive and not really a surprise they backed him to be the candid it the man himself sounded impatient to get out on the campaign trail. and. everyone wants a decision see all the facts are on the table the problems we need to solve are so big that we should no longer be preoccupied with our internal party issues but rather with the major tasks that lie ahead for germany today tomorrow this week and in the coming months morgan. nixon will not lead. to by monday afternoon
10:23 am
marcus head of the smaller bavarian c.s.u. had the backing of his party leadership he thinks the conservatives should ponder the candidate question a bit longer not only is he personally more popular than lash out he also claims to stand for a style of politics the people want. the conservatives have never fallen out of favor with voters so quickly before everything but there are a clear indication of what the public is thinking and we can't cut ourselves off from the majority of people. that mention and some not for the certain needs now is public support from the white or conservative parties perhaps from members of parliament worried about losing their jobs if the wrong man leads them into the national election in september. if those voices do not materialize it seems very likely christian democrat only lush it will be the choice to seize the baritone
10:24 am
when i'm going to america leads the chancellor e. later this year. back now as chief political editor make a look of. sodor leading in the polls he seems to be more popular why isn't the party just backing him. because in the last it is the candidates who has the backing of the regional posse groups within his much bigger c.d.u. party it's a union with the bavarian c.s.u. smaller system posse but what we can say here is that certainly that even the 2nd a fallback plan of anger machall to have something like a smooth transition into a succession has spectacularly failed we're seeing an open showdown and those polling figures may be a lot higher for markel sort of bavaria but the c.d.u. polling figures have now landed back to where they were before the pandemic and the greens may take advantage of this so this is a very risky maneuvering
10:25 am
a very risky high noon but i'm going to machall c.d.u. c.s.u. union over her legacy may hair look of now with the view from berlin thank you. soccer news for you now byron munich are preparing for a champions league quarter final clash with paris on german the bavarians need a win to keep them in the competition a p.s.g. is impressive display and unique last week shows the byron are facing a tough challenge. rarely cost as underdogs but that's how they see themselves as they had to paris in need of at least $2.00 goals to qualify for the champions league semifinals after p.s.g. smash and grab 3 to win in munich is a tough. it's a tough task. and forward to it but i think games like these are why you play football and why you're here. we want to try to cause a many upset. chances of upset in the
