7:01 am
a. punished for their resistance hong kong's pro-democracy leaders are sentenced so we'll serve more than a year in jail for joining mass demonstrations against china's tightening grip on the territory. and public yes welcome to the program u.s. president joe biden has repeated calls for congress to pass gun restrictions after another mass shooting the president ordered flags to be lowered at the white house and other government buildings in honor of the 8 people who were killed at a fed ex warehouse in indianapolis on thursday at a press conference he said that u.s. gun deaths were an epidemic. browers. national embarrassment which growing are not always. these mass shootings that are
7:02 am
occurring every single day every single day so imagine. the united states if you count all those who are killed out of the streets of our cities in our rural areas it's a national embarrassment and must come to whatever well the gunman was a former fed ex employee and after killing 8 people and wounding several others he also shot himself dead police are still investigating him out of it's also emerged yes the i had questioned the shooter last year. it was shortly after 11 pm on thursday night when the police were called out to the indianapolis airports roads were closed and much of the airport placed into lockdown police said officers responded as quickly as they could but they arrived to light at the fed ex building morning. received a call reference shots fired to that location as officers who responded the. way
7:03 am
they arrived to an active shooter incident. at that location. primary information at this time is that the alleged shooter has taken his own life here at the scene. police say 8 people were killed suffering injuries consistent with gunshot wounds 5 others were taken to hospital one is said to be in a critical condition. witnesses at the scene say they saw a man far in what they thought was an automatic firearm saw a man with a submachine gun of some sort an automatic rifle and he was firing at and he opened and i immediately ducked down and got scared as day broke police was still collecting evidence trying to identify the 19 year old shooter's motive last night in the doubtless was revisited by the scourge of gun violence.
7:04 am
that has killed far too many in our community and in our country although we will learn more about this case in the coming days and in the coming weeks no piece of information will restore the lives that were taken. this is the latest in a spate of mass shootings in the u.s. after a period of relative calm during the coronavirus pandemic and it's already prompted renewed calls for stricter gun controls. as we've heard president biden is one of those voices calling for tougher gun laws and. told us more about his plans to tackle gun violence some still hope for president biden to appoint a special envoy for this single issue for guns similar to john kerry the person he picked for the time of crisis but earlier today a white house spokeswoman jen psaki is here we checked at this suggestion arguing
7:05 am
that the main impaired a mentor addressing the crisis are the congressional republicans and not a lack of will in the white house there really is there are some small executive negotiations on capitol hill for example an expansion on background checks as for now people with dangerous histories can easily buy firearms on line or in a gun show here in the states because a background check is not necessary to buy a gun and president biden has also appointed a new director of the poor for alcohol tobacco and firearms and explosives and agency a responsible with enforcing existing federal gun laws and executive actions and this agency has been without a full time director for the last 25 years because politicians who are being supported by the n.r.a. the national rifle association have been constantly blocking nominations arguing that a strong leader of the agency would threaten the 2nd amendment here the state's.
7:06 am
that was covering that she more reporting from washington well let's take a look now at some other stories making headlines around the world hundreds of people took to the streets in chicago after city police released bodycount footage of an officer shooting dead a 13 year old boy to lead oh protesters held a vigil in solidarity with his family the shooting is being investigated by the civilian office of police accountability. the leaders of germany france and ukraine have called on russia to pull its troops back from the ukrainian border followed them moved selenski met emanuel in my car in paris and i'm joined by video link to lansky called 1st summit that also included moscow. well germany is seeing its highest rise in coronavirus cases since january 1 of the main reasons is the slow pace of vaccinations with fewer than one in 5 germans having received
7:07 am

7:08 am
puzzles slowly you can see that there is an increase at the moment when not yet in a situation that brings us to the edge of what we can do with your crown but we know that if the numbers continue to rise we could certainly have problems both as a hellish program we have incurred on in recent weeks the number of covered patients in germany's icy use has been rising sharply again by now at the peak of the 2nd wave of the pandemic has almost been reached intensive care beds are becoming scarse and the workload of stuff continues to grow. intensive care nurse tim cook has also noticed that. among men of now in this 3rd wave it is particularly noticeable that the patients are getting more seriously ill and they are ill for longer and also they need a lot of care that means the situation is very challenging and very stressful for us you really need time to relax when you're off work. but it is not just the sheer
7:09 am
increase uncovered patients that worries the teeth that patients health is deteriorating fast and this 3rd wave of the pandemic they are also efforts younger than before probably also because most people over 80 years old have already been vaccinated. and the everett age is now much younger compared to the 1st or 2nd waves and we see that very clearly we don't really have any patients who are over 80 years old anymore they're almost non-existent if you would you know to what extent german hospital. average varies greatly from region to region some are already completely full others are still coping one thing would help more vaccinations we're going in for good we won't get out of this without back scenes they are very important but it is also important to stick to hygiene measures keep that distance and observe current coverage for stretches of each and everyone must take this been demick seriously and can do their part to make get out of this is
7:10 am
quickly as possible the truth will come if the number of patients continues to rise other important treatments would have to be postponed in some areas and many that is already the case the situation many doctors agree is serious. well some of hong kong's most prominent pro-democracy campaigners have learned the price of standing up to china's increasing power a court has handed down sentences on $10.00 protest leaders over mass demonstrations 2 years ago despite the crackdown remaining anti-government activists say they haven't given up hope was they've just been handed a sentence for participating in protests yet they are still calling for hong kong as freedoms i. may be a tycoon jimmy lai was among those sent to jail for produce a painting in a future pro-democracy protests back in 29 tain. he received
7:11 am
a sentence of 14 months. it's a good thing if i think it is not but there are many more times. more people would offer up to him that i don't know that still. hold on there even still. 4 of those convicted were given suspended sentences including 82 year old former lawmaker martin lee and elder statesman of the pro-democracy movement. the convictions are a blow to the pro-democracy movement in hong kong which is facing a strong crackdown by beijing and hong kong authorities i've done nothing of the civil human rights front is very very disappointed by the sentencing today it creates a chilling effect that makes us citizens afraid of speaking up it also makes the society gradually lose
7:12 am
a rational patient and peaceful voice to communicate with the government oh yes there were. massive protests swept hong kong organized 29 tain they began as a reaction to an extradition bill allowing people to be transferred to mainland china and then activists feed opposition leaders could be sent to china now they are being. harm. despite the sentences activists say they won't back down in the fight for freedoms for hong kong but it's getting tougher and tougher to stand up for democracy in the city. castro has announced his resignation as head of cuba's ruling communist party putting an end to 6 decades of rule in the country by members of the castro family raul took over as president from his brother fit in 2008. as for me my task as 1st secretary of the central committee of the communist party of cuba and with the satisfaction of

7:43 am
we going to do to shift down the the mind and the supply because there is no not the mind now won't be supply because he's so annoying and so have that many gals with you chill dad picnicking now live on the streets because there are so many people that want to go by yourself because your reasoning is deficient there is a god made the have their eyes closed told you due to my nice issue and so many with what was taken from you what was taken away then bab i believe that that very moment i fax that i was robbed of my dignity i was angry i was traumatized that was despair then because of these i decided i fed them just day because it's what is not what i dreamt of because these knocks do reason why i study. it wasn't my hope it's one thing my spirit then is one of the reason why i decided to search for the police station to make report i would like
7:44 am
to underline from my perspective will prosecute the 2 story you have been told i'm not just story. i have face of more than hundreds of cases of human trafficking and those are like a trick me row because all the girls are told they will work as waitress they will work outside dressers or as. i say it's women they look at the facebook and see all the beaches of their friends who are in europe and they see women peaches and all the traffickers approach is friendly if i would take care of you i do not have to think about nothing i will provide to you at home a work that there are no good samaritan no one they are just looking for a source of income right so this is to underline it is not just 2 story this is the
7:45 am
same story all the time ok and what is also the same story in a way and i'll come to you maria is the fact that most of the women on the streets of italy who are being sold in 6 leaves come from one state in nigeria i think the number is 94 percent according to the international organization for migration 94 percent of these women come from door states you're researching this why would that be the case and the state has a big history of migration that started i think in eighty's when there were quite so many talents present on the ground working in some industries and who marry thing tearing woman that's a narrative that is going around and what happened this that a lot of them yeah brought their wives to europe and what. they didn't this started the business it's one reason the 2nd reason there is a lot of mistakes things involved an add on it's a very interesting community it's
7:46 am
a community that has a long history it has a lot of waste him and possibilities of money but actually i think it's about black magic yeah although it's present in everyday life of nigerian people it's not something specific to their community but in right in there it's very strong and the surgery center is a dream and when you have more of your girlfriends going around and then coming back in beautiful clothes or you see them then you want to do the same thanks but francesca i'm going to come to you now because you are you work in law enforcement your job is to catch the people one of the things that we know is that and we heard from princess a blessing is that they don't report to the victims don't come and reports yes it's very important that the victims are going to tell their stories because a. journey to cross in our. in our sister network governments and our law enforcement. their need to cross. through. the
7:47 am
right. when they are in any sort of sense of weigh in here so i want to see the. question you asked me and mr francesco francesco to be difficult you this one is the language barrier. in africa where we came from we don't have we is not a society when you have a problem with somebody you go to tell the police do you. because one the modern is just trekking now if you want to report the police are going to arrest you don't have a document they are going to deport you try telling you that if you report me i will kill your more doubt we kill you brought out we destroy you you swear so the whole team we create a kind of quick to duck very individual mind you begin to feel ok you talk about what i'm going to come back to you because experience was this voodoo ceremony that takes place and how it plays into the fear that women have in running away and
7:48 am
escaping from the straffing situation not to do was made for the blessings of the land and for the cause of him it's only function is like logic ali when you are the belief or when you are friend of something because the bible says that fear is their son before god so the most important back there is that we need to take away the fear from the victims you know that for how to come out out of the spell without getting out the fear the victim might not be able to come right then secondly i want to talk about them is the francesco because most of the victims normally. denounce the traffic was the village on the sector of these people is too much ok so i'm going to come so you know because here's somebody saying some victims do they come and they report but it takes so long the process i
7:49 am
don't know in mind of things happened in a few months we are able to arrest we have been arrested so many people more than 100 in the last 2 years in 2018 we had. for 198 years of imprisonment for many traffickers so it sounds strange to me because in this something that i don't know in my office we are really fast and we are able to build in mitigation without the witness statement the weakness. the victims in question that right just when the older trafficker have been arrested so she feels safe she is. also responsible because you know that she can live she can be silent all she can tell the truth but the traffickers will remain in prison so that's very important for her francesco you wanted to weigh in and i will be back to you. something 1st of all we puts under protection the victim so
7:50 am
that she is out of power of their. interest 1st of all so. she started to go corporation with us she was under protection immediately. after that. we can try to do our best with the prosecutor ok to try to arrest certain traffickers ok ok i'm going to come back to you now because with let's try and think about the solutions one of the things you spoke about earlier was the fact that there is demand and supply we've been told that the state that you come from its main export is it's women like you talk to us about that and why that needs to change before we can stop seeing women coming here and being put in the position you were put into i believe that a busy economy sweets hole you know that a reduction in the mine we need to supply as well because i
7:51 am
believe that the european union need to be truthful and they need to do the right thing but it's not the european union standing right here and women to to it's all me i don't want to talk there like i did prostitution what those around me the guy who are using it right are part of a woman to be passed being caught but we had princes say that this isn't prostitution that this is slave trade you have both when you like the lights prostitution the traffic idea very very very very intelligent yeah very very intelligent you like the lights prostitution ok and then you hang on a 2nd i think you've been let's go back i want to talk about this this fundable part of the world because i'm not satisfied with the idea that the only solution is from a european perspective you have been on the ground you are going home to nigeria you're speaking to young women they tell me about what you're telling them so that they don't come here and land up in the position you found yourself and we organize things semi announced in the georgians in the university of the need to talk about
7:52 am
the risk of human trafficking and do share my experience these as one of the victim to get the young ones. to question and also to get the right model to take care of their school fees of the our daughters so that they don't say no you don't want to not send your daughter right he will come to if. in particular in a particular society if the government does not want to not provide the needs for the people on what she said when do i see you see i'm a guest on his yeah that is the one you all to us put in front future making fine you know it talk doc you know piece what it's all they think it looks like what you look like you know well and they're insane so you shall eat the indian reality it's not soup what let me finish let me finish because you see this guess there is no love then that got stung public yes it. i'm a prostitute dr schwartz but the swart doctors did
7:53 am
a lot because they don't want to that is why you see it is very hard for the evil the connection between italian granite and european good meat we did have of the nigerian government to bottle it because. no doctor want to say to his family that he's a person to get yeah yeah he's saying that the solution is among us where do you where is the solution for you what is the solution to the solution and i believe that 1st of all thanks to for education it's very very positive haitian education sue let got pathways has to be open because the pathways of migration of migration how to build a disease which i believe in the european union you see many people the plight for v.c. went to bed at night yes i think their plight hope i saw them out this morning yeah deny go be stopped but there are many agents right on get this we saw for them at the end of the did they will become victims of crime not talk right now well i need i need a solution from princess i need a solution from you i said that one of the solution is that we should try and i
7:54 am
were young ones in the way of righteousness so that when they grew up there would never become a victim or a clinton that's number one then number 2 we need to go back to our own country you not got to let the color of bread with our government so free education and also give the youth of what you need to get a job because most of the victims because they don't have free education and they don't get jobs we'll leave it there this has been the same the same percent we've been talking about the fact that many young african women's on the streets of italy day and night we've told we've been told that they're not prostitutes that they're slaves because some of the solutions we're interested to know what you think get in touch with us by social media with a conversation continues. thanks to christine on the to. team for that very insightful debate and of course thanks
