hospitals filled. mass cremations. i'm welcome to the program prosecutors in france have opened a terrorism investigation after a police employee was stabbed to death at a police station near paris 3 people thought to be connected to the attack or have been detained french president. said the country would never give in to what he called islamist terrorism. the normally quiet residential
area just outside paris now the center of attention in france security agents flooded the area investigating the killing of a police employee that occurred in an unlikely location. the police station is very well protected there is a protective lock and so people can't just walk in so the attacker waited for her to go and change her parking ticket the murderer caught her by surprise as she left the police station for just a moment and so it was really a cowardly barbaric attack to kill someone and to kill a policewoman. local media report that the attacker was a 36 year old man with no criminal record some witnesses say they heard him say allahu akhbar arabic for god is great as he stabbed his victim a police officer then opened fire on the attacker killing him there suggestions the
man had previously scouted out the site. the office of the national antiterrorism prosecutor has taken charge over the investigation of the crimes committed here. the reasons for this are 1st how the events occurred which involved looking for a target. also the way the crime was committed. the profile of the victim but also the remarks made by the perpetrator at the time of the crime. the. president in my normal crime paid tribute to the police worker whom he identified as stephanie in a tweet he said the nation stood by her family he added in the fight against islamist terrorism we will not give up. islamist terrorism is again a worry for france. straight to paterson which oh no journalist catherine the field welcome catherine bring us up to date what more do we know in the last few
hours police have gone into the home of the assailant not far from the police station and home to the southwest of paris we also know they're carrying out a search of his previous home which is in eastern paris police have also taken into custody for questioning free of members of his close entourage we understand one of those could be a family member in the meantime police also say they have his mobile phone they're going through that to see what sort of links he may have had in the last few hours before this attack took place where they were links to jihadist organizations or anyone that can give them some sort of clue as to where this man was coming from what he was doing who were his accomplices if indeed there were any because this is a man who was not known to the security services he wasn't known to the intelligence services so that really just fumbling around at this moment to try to
put together a picture of what actually happened in those minutes before this attack took place and this is now being treated as a terror attack so what difference does it make in terms of powers of arrest in the way of of investigation or sample. it means that the anti terror prosecutions can call on the french domestic intelligence you know if it means that they can have much more wind to scope for be able to draw her and other witnesses they can hold people for longer and of course they have all this other information to hand that they've had unfortunately from other attacks there's been a spate over the last 5 or 6 he attacks on very small police stations and homes of police officers in the western heritage area so they'll be able to get all that information together very quickly and try and find out yet once again what went wrong and then on to tackle was able to get through the front door on the police
station and stabbed to death a police employee what sort of place. where this attack happened. it's a little some urban town really it's about 60 kilometers southwest of paris it has a fast train service into the french capital so the sort of people who live there and generally families you can have a very small house with a little small garden the area is also known for having a beautiful forest a lovely chateau it's where you would really go to get away from the sort of hustle and bustle of the says he and i think that's why the scenes that we're seeing tonight among the a are just so shocking because people are wondering around the streets saying how could this have happened in this quiet sleepy little commuter town where everyone is or is being known for being friendly and laura but thank you for that catherine journalist to catherine field in paris thank you and world leaders
have joined us president joe biden in setting new climate to talk it's ending the 2 day virtual global climate summit president biden urged his counterparts to make good on their commitments in order to slow global warming. hello everyone good morning everybody dialing in for day 2 of the virtual climate summit the 1st day saw national targets for limits on emissions now topping the agenda innovation u.s. president joe biden playing up the economic advantages of fighting global warming. an opportunity to create millions of good paying jobs around the world an innovative and innovative sectors you know jobs of bring greater quality. greater dignity to the people performing those jobs in every nation button says workers in traditional energy sectors must be offered new opportunities the u.s.
wants to take the lead in developing green technologies stepping up the pace of research and making more use of public and private investment and using just today's technologies won't allow us to meet our ambitious goals we need new 0 carbon products that are just as affordable that have what i call a green premium aabs erode. thank you prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced israel would phase out cold by 2025 but experts say existing targets and schedules won't be enough to cap global warming at the agreed 1.5 percent. but take a closer look at this with jill duggan who's executive director of environmental defense fund to europe she joins us from london welcome to the w. what we heard in the last 2 days non-binding commitments from politicians who won't
be a rounds to see them through do you take these bishops targets that they set themselves seriously. well 1st of who most of these targets of the 2030 so work though these politicians themselves may not be around they're not targets that are so far in a future that they have no accountability for them so i think that's a welcome change there's been a net 02050 movement that is a 2030 targets that we're looking at now and that makes it much much more real for the politicians involved and i think it's it's the action that we need to see now is you know what are we going to do this decade to get us on the right track or. even with these new commitments we will still fall short of the paris target so we're back in 2015 so why bother. well in paris the $190.00 class countries that signed the paris agreement said that they wanted
to limits temperature increases to below 2 degrees named the $1.00 above pre-industrial levels we're already at one degree but they also say to themselves we will have to leave because it had targets every 5 years to see if we can do better said the pledges they made in paris although they wanted that ambition to restrict temperature increases the pledges they made still allowed for about 3 degrees centigrade of warnings that is to fell far short now what we need to do is to narrow the gap and bridge the gap between the ambition of limiting temperature increases and what countries are prepared to do the european union for example has gone from and originally back in paris saying it would cut emissions by 40 percent in 1990 and now it's going up to 55 percent and the us i think was somewhere or somewhere short quite a long way short of the 50 at least 50 percent of its announced today so we're moving in the right direction we're not moving fast enough and not all countries it
turned up to the summit seem to have got the memo about what was expected of them says some of them still have a long long way to go and that's look at. the good news i see i see in this i'm not convinced as you are by the posturing but the good news amongst a posturing is that the e.u. and the us now seem to be competing on climate targets which are supposed to be of a good thing yeah and i'm not convinced by the posturing but i think at least if you get countries to come forward with ambition then their electorates where they have them can hold them to account and a bit of healthy competition between major blocks such as the us in the can only be for the good this is not about you know you have one leader rather than another leader this is the whole world needs to move on it so the more the merrier oh good talking to thank you so much for joining us so jill duggan family environmental defense fund your. stories making headlines around the world now

care for a loss of sensation in these americans and he was imprisoned after returning from germany where he sought treatment after being poisoned in russia with a raw nerve agent his doctors this week to end the hunger strike so his life is at risk. well correspondent and really sure when moscow says election the valise still not out of the woods even though the hunger strike is that well it seems that extent of on these demands to see civilian doctors have been met there was a new post on his instagram account he seems to have been passing these posts on to his lawyers periodically and in that post he says that he was able to see doctors that he says he trusts twice now and that they have recommended that he calls off his hunger strike apparently according to that post they said that soon there may be nothing left to treat if he starts if he doesn't stop his hunger strike but he
has also demanded to see another doctor he's still complaining about numbness in his arms and legs so that demand goes forward cording to his supporters there is still some risk to his health even now that he's called off the hunger strike he himself says that it will be difficult to come out of this hunger strike that will take 3 weeks as well according to his post according to recent blood tests he may be at risk for kidney failure or even heart failure so i think we have to watch this space and it does seem that he is still not out of the woods even now that he has stopped his hunger strike. i want to show in moscow now chad has held a state funeral for a long time ruler idriss deby he died on tuesday after battling rebel forces president debbie ruled the central african nation for 30 years he suddenly. has taken a president chats

even harm national security. well they don't report on safe has been doing his own snooping on this story and joins us now welcome i mean so what is british intelligence what about well there this is called think before you link this campaign and essentially they're warning people especially u.k. residents that anybody who that they say they see on linked in they have to be sure that they're not an agent of a foreign intelligence agency it's not clear in that video that you saw that they're talking about china in there but you can see that one of the profiles or the profile that we see in the beginning is from somebody with the last name wing which is the most common chinese last name and then you see one of the shady characters standing behind her looks like a businessman and there's also a history of chinese intelligence agents going on to linked in which is the platform that they're most concerned about and creating fake profiles in order to
approach people who might have jobs where they have access to sensitive government for mission and try to befriend them and then get them to leak some of that information to them now there is a history of china doing that but like i said m i 5 was not clear that it's china they're warning right now did do actual grown ups full plate of this came completely random strangers saying hello let me be your friend passes some secrets well m i 5 is trying to say that this is a big problem they've said that 10000 people in the u.k. have been targeted that's the word that they used by this scheme but they didn't give any information on how many people fell prey to it so i can't really say for sure if this actually works or if it's just something that they're worried that will work now there was one high profile case of a academic from singapore who targeted people on the platform linked in he was eventually arrested so that was one case that we can say ok here's where it did happen but that didn't totally fit the bill because he was actually using is real
personal profile on linked in to do it ok. so if this isn't a problem why they lowered his campaign well this is this comes in the context of u.k. taking a tougher stance against china and china is also ramping up its own intelligence work around the world and i think this is an example of the u.k. counterintelligence so they're trying to warn professionals in the country that they could be targeted on social media from chinese intelligence another thing to consider here is that m i 5 is in the middle of a sort of p.r. campaign a public relations campaign they just launched instagram account for the 1st time it's less than 24 hours old and they said they want to shake off the martini drinking stereotype of by a british spy obviously the talking about james bond but i think they're also worried about another reputation that is hounded them since the edward snowden revelations and that's spying on their own population so i don't know if you remember but edward snowden when he revealed that the n.s.a. in the u.s.
was spying on its population he also revealed that british intelligence was spying on their own population on a scale equivalent to what was happening in the us ok i mean a safe thank you so much. men's national football team ryan giggs will not take charge of his country at the upcoming european championships after british prosecutors charged him with assaulting 2 women the 47 year old former manchester united player is due to appear in wednesday after being arrested in november police have charged him with assault occasioning bodily harm or. coach coach while under investigation and football association has confirmed the. page. for the delayed 20. european football's governing body. will remain
