[000:00:00;00] ah, [000:00:00;00] use this is g w, news live from berlin tonight, rescue teams that the collapsed condo building, your miami, stop their work hearing what's left of the structure could give way. it comes as president biden arrived in florida today and told rescuers how much he appreciated their work. he's now meeting with family members of the dead and missing a 145 people are still unaccounted for. also coming up tonight,
china will not be bullied again. a warning from president she's paying as the countries celebrates the $100.00 per day of its communist party. she says the child is wise, is now irreversible. and remembering diana, princess william and hair put aside their differences between vale, a statue of their late mother. what would have been the princess's 60th birthday? ah, i'm burnt golf. it's good to have you with us work has been halted at the side of that collapse department high rise in surfside, florida. i mid fears that parts of the building still standing could give way with president joe biden is in surfside tonight, where he has been briefed on the emergency operation. he met with 1st responders and thank them for their work and is also holding
a closed door meeting with the families of people who have been killed. and of those who are still missing. the confirmed death has risen to 18 with as many as 145 and accounted for. no survivors have been found since last thursday. it's hard to think about anything else for diana, a winner. every time she takes the dog out, she passed this by the collapse chimplan tower and survived. but hopes of finding more people alive are fading. she believes the tragedy could have been avoided. i feel sad. i feel sad that people didn't really step up and say, it's time we need to, we need to pay attention to this and do what we need to do. it's too many lives and probably been lost. as a result of it. for days, hundreds of firefighters were picking through the rubble. the rescue operation is
now halted as expanding cracks in the other instabilities in the structure post danger to their lives. digging was already slow because of the risk of further collapse or the workers emotions are another obstacle. it's very sad the times that i've been going up on the pile and you find rotors and 80 bottles of toys. it just brings sense of reality to the moment. you know, it's very touching because i have, i have kids, myself, a 2018 inspection was of structural damages to the building. the focus is now on similar, high rises in the county, 40 years, and older inspectors are now checking 40 other high rise buildings for damages, a large effort that could still be enough if the owners don't have enough money to get the necessary works done in case of the chem, playing towers and necessary repairs could have cost $100000.00
u. s. dollars per unit. darrow arnold, who lives opposite the champ, playing tower, is believe something to change. he has his own theory on why the building wasn't repaired, despite the findings of structural damage. what happened in this case is the city official inspector said that there was nothing to worry about imminently. and people breath breathed probably a sigh of relief because they didn't want to find the money to deal with the problem. i assume that's going to change in light of this incident and you're going to have much more care and caution going forward. much healing is needed in surfside florida, but for now, the beach community is reeling from this historic tragedy. and and we're oliver salad is in surfside, florida. right now. good evening to you, oliver. can the you was president at this stage?
can he offer the families in the hope that they're missing loved ones will be found a while really a balancing act. brandon present, buying has been spending last hour or so behind closed doors meeting and talking to the relatives of the victims, the potential victims of cause of those who are still unaccounted for. and he's really trying to find the words of sympathy, but then also encouraging words, because many have still hopes that their relatives could be found underneath the rubble. just a little while ago we heard that rescuers heard the voice of a woman under the rubble miami dade fire rescue chief confirmed that, however no one was found at 1st aside, and all everyone who's missing a female relative of no, no, of course desperately putting his hopes up waiting for the miracle to happen, because the last survivors you mentioned has been found one week ago in the early hours after the tower came down. yeah, and the dangers apparently are, are still there at the site. what more do we know about the situation there?
well, the rescue operation has been paused essentially because of the dangers of further parts of the standing construction, the tower that has not come down, that this could collapse as well. so there is a lot of fear, of course, that the rescuers and danger and that potentially those who might survive underneath, underneath the rebel are and even more danger. now, if more part of the building comes down, other than that, there is a really careful operation. we've seen that yesterday when we filmed there are people really carefully with gloves, with, with their bare hands, trying to sift through the rubble. and that is also why everything takes along. and do we know our authorities or the, any clear on what caused this tower to collapse? well, there is some kind of a lead that has been developed over the last days. we've heard of this 2018
inspection that found some structural damages at the building. we also know that the president of the condominium association just a few months ago wrote in a letter to the owners that the situation is deteriorated and so golf $15000000.00 us dollars in repairs that will be urgently needed. but that, of course, is a contracting account to the city inspector who thought the situation was less urgent. and as it seems, the owner went with his assessment. so all of this looks very plausible right now, but of course is also important to point out that we have to wait until an investigation is finished. and that will take several months from now. and what about concern that other buildings are at risk of collapsing? there is, of course, some concern because there are many of these older buildings along the east coast of the united states and many are being investigated right now. 40 of them only here in this county. the problem, of course, that we've, we've learned that painfully from the collapse here in surfside is a, knowing the damages doesn't necessarily mean that they are being fixed. and so the
hopes are that some legal action might follow. and i was able to speak to a board member of another condominium building and she said that it would be useful to force owners to sell their condominiums if they can't afford the necessary repair. certainly a tough measure. and perhaps one way to avoid such a situation from happening again a very on the salad in surfside, florida. tonight's oliver thank you with defiant words. and the warning from chinese president, she's in peeing and celebrations today, marking the 100 and a bursary of the countries communist party speaking in t. and i'm in square, he called for tri one to be brought back under chinese control and said that china will not be intimidated by threats from abroad. observer. see his comments as a warning to western countries that have criticized beijing for its human rights abuses. incorrect downs in hong kong. the
it was a spectacle designed to impress, showing off the party's dominance. gentlemen square was packed with $70000.00 handpick spectators. putting on a show of patry arctic fervor, the cannons wrought $100.00 times. once a year, the chinese communist parties existence you see on the streets of beijing, loyalists gathered to enjoy what they could see of the celebrations. it has been 100 years since the party was founded until 40 china has developed and people's lives got better. of course i'm happy this figure, it kind of garcia was echoing the message of president. she didn't ping, perhaps the party's most powerful leaders. since it's time to mouse. i don't standing above my portrait and dressed in
a suit to him and listened to the chem and she praised the ccp for lifting the chinese people out of poverty. he hailed what he called the countries irreversible rise from humiliation to global dominance. and he delivered a message of defiance to foreign powers. why? me? yeah. we will never allow any foreign force to bully, oppress, or subjugate us. say, anyone who dares to try that will find the head mashed against a great wall of steel. forged by over 1400000000 chinese people hung poll portia and the language was perhaps chosen with a domestic audience in mind. but she backed up his warning with a pledge to beast, china's military might. and the promise to bring south governing, tie one under china's control,
a vision of an assertive china impervious to western criticism, and uncompromising on strategic goals. i'm joined now by sarah cook. she's the research director for china, taiwan in hong kong. it freedom house, that's a washington based in geo. it's good to have you on the program. miss cook this massive spectacle on tiana mon square knowing what happens there in 1989. what does this tell us about the power of the communist party to totally control the narrative? i think it says a lot about aspirations of the part of the control, the narrative and control chinese people. because i think a lot of the political feeder is also to demonstrate that, you know, whether you would want to salute the party or not the party can make you do that. and i think one of the things we see on social media where, which isn't obviously onto them and where is the level of censorship and control and full mentation, an amplification of nationalistic narrative,
like what the party would like, but very fierce depression. of anybody trying to remember, well, the alternative and very bloody history of the chinese communist party in china. do you think people standing on that square to day people born after 989? do you think many of them are even aware of the massacre that happened there? i think a lot of them are not. i mean, i think the thing to keep in mind in terms of the people on the square is that they were hand. and i imagine a lot of them are members of the communist youth league or other what has been, you know, particularly protected from, you know, uncensored information. but i think generally you do see situations where a lot of young people in china are not aware. and even chinese students who come here, i know students and people arrived and learned about and to be honest, when they learned about it, it really changed how they think about china and the time miss hardy. and that's
exactly what the ttp doesn't want. people doing, which is why it hides that, that, that one piece of really all of the history of the party in china. so fiercely and gordon. we heard president, she's in thing today deliver a very strong warning to the rest of the world. don't bully us, or you'll bash your head and get it bloody. i mean, should the world fear this, china that is acting more and more like a super power? well, i mean, i think the question of how china is acting if this is the, you know, the way to act as a super power is a question. right? because i think a lot of people would have hold for more responsible stakeholder. and i think that actually fall into a line, you know, ensured the agreements made for example about hong kong are actually followed. but i think here what is signaling is the level of aggressiveness. and i think the issue in china is that, you know, the look beneath all of the palm is actually one of the security and what the login
that really struck me as the parent of a young child was like, listen to the party, appreciate the party follow the part, you know, that's not something you have to tell people if they're actually doing those things . and i think that's just one example along others where you see that, you know, even though she's consolidate power so much, there are people, even in the party that are not really satisfied with the direction he can china because of domestic progression because of aggressiveness, internationally. and so there is an insecurity, but to be honest, we've seen this with other authoritarian regime. that insecurity can translate into really dangerous military aggression. and so i think when we see this kind of militaristic language according to the taiwan, which i think is also a key audience for, you know, in terms of that particular statement and warning. also, you know, it's not only coming through a position of strength. it's also, i think, coming from position of insecurity and needing to nationalism to short, legitimate chinese congress already within. yeah,
and it will be interesting to see if taiwan indeed becomes the newest and long lasting flashpoint between china and the us. we will see sarah cook from freedom house. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. well here's a look now at some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world . in canada, a fast moving wildfire has destroyed more than 90 percent of the town that has been seeing record breaking heat. the mountain town of linton in british columbia repeatedly broke candidates all time high temperature record this week. reaching 49.6 degrees celsius on tuesday, the flames have forced the towns, residents, all of them to evacuate. protesters are taken to the streets of symbol after turkey formerly withdrew from a un convention aimed at protecting women and girls from abuse. president air, the ones government side, it is concerned that the law was being used was normalized homosexuality. white's group say turkeys withdraw from the convention is unwell for
a $130.00 countries have signed onto a global tax plan to ensure that multinational pay a tax rate of at least 15 percent. the scheme is designed to prevent large firms including google, amazon in facebook, from taking advantage of weak tax rooms. germany has held the plan as a colossal step towards tax justice. donald trump's named state company and its long time chief financial officer have pleaded not guilty to tax fraud charges. newer prosecutors accuse trump organization executive, alan. why so berg? a personally avoiding tax on $1700000.00 of income, the firm is alleged to have run a quote sweeping and audacious scheme to keep executive pay off of the books. these are the 1st criminal charges to come out of the year is long investigation into the
trump organization. the former us president himself is not facing charges at this time or more. now let's go to our financial correspondent in new york. he ends quarter. good evening to you. yes. what exactly are the trump organization and allen? why so bird? what are or do they accuse jobs now? well, i mean the charges are that they have been given perks to allen vices, burke, and to some of his family members and 10 employees. we are talking carly at the manhattan apartments and also private school tuition. so those can be quite costly . here in the city, what prosecutors actually will have to prove though, is that there was intent to div fraud. and they will also need a proof of the amount of the value of those perks that are given to ellen, vice berg and from the trump organization. and to some of those family members and
employed, and people are wondering if donald trump, if he has indeed teflon trump, is there likely to be any fall out from this for the former us president himself there? well, i mean, that's how the whole case is set up from a pre prosecutors. it's not really about the tech fraud sum at this point that there are in the center of those charges. what prosecutors will try to do is build up pressure on allen vices. burke and he has been an executive for the trump organization for a decade. so if prosecutors can build pressure on him so that he might help actually prosecutors to go after donald trump. that's actually the goal. the trial won't start probably before next year. so there will be a time for ellen, vice president his lawyer. so a to consider if they're going to help prosecutors or if it's going to remain on the side of donald trump. but clearly,
this is all getting some witness to help prosecutors against the former president of court in new york city tonight, dns is always thank you. back on this side of the atlantic, the european union's digital cobra, 1900 certificate system was launched today. it's supposed to make traveling across easier, but airlines are warning it isn't ready and it could cause long delayed system links up the various code 19 apps authorized by individual e u countries. the apps display a q r code which can be scanned to confirm a person's status, as well as vaccination details they can store test results and evidence of recovery paper base queue outcomes. should also be that we asked our corresponded beard riggers in brussels. what changes travelers in europe can expect for the 30 percent off of already fully vaccinated in europe. that means there's less hassle when they
travel by plane. they don't have to come up with a p c s before they enter the plane. and that's also true for people that recover, haven't covered that the other 60 percent still have to provide in most cases a p c r test. but the truth is also that there is no common rule. every member state does it differently. so you have to check where you go and which was actually apply. and for this is for intra, you travel only. and if you coming from a 3rd country to the you, this coverage vaccination certificate doesn't mean anything because you don't need it actually to enter the you. you can also have you approve of explanation from your home country or a p c r test or show that you have recovered from cove it. so and also he had the member states in the driver's seat. they also can apply different drugs. so if you come do, you have to check anytime which country entering and which was there?
so the system is still very shattered. or there was been reporting the stickler down some of the other developments. indic rhonda virus pandemic authorities in portugal or imposing a nighttime curfew for several municipalities, including the cities of lisbon in port up. the country is struggling to stem. a surge and infections linked to the fast spreading, delta variant russian authorities say some clinics have begun offering booster shots for people already fully vaccinated. the countries seeking to combat rising cases fuel by that delta variant. and turkey has listed nearly all of its restrictions on businesses and events. as new cases have leveled off, restaurants and parties no longer need to limit the number of guests and concerts and festivals can take place. both indoors and outdoors. british royal princes, william and harry have appeared in public together today to unveil a statue of their late mother. princess diana was killed in the high speed car

a sign of her son's twin commitment to their mother and what she stands for. and i think in the light of that we, we can hope they would want this event to have some meaning. and what better meaning could it have than for the 2 of them to start moving towards some sort of reconciliation i the lady diana spencer was 20 years old when she married prince charles in 1981 in what appeared to be a fairy tap romance. but the relationship was anything but they push on a brave faith, but by 992 they had publicly separated. 5 years later, disaster struck princess diana was killed in a car crash in paris. her death shocked the world.
