left to the mercy of taliban terrorists. u.s. and nato troops prepared to exit the country by mid september the former afghan translator who works for the british army told us why the. if there isn't an office full recognition by the government so far. and the process soft been often terp there's or not very much at the top priority of the ministry of defense i think minister of defense and the u.k. government as a whole are forgetting that interpreters were key assets off the the 18 year long combat military mission in afghanistan and leaving them behind and forgetting them is this putting them at risk over the years the hundreds of interpreters who work for the british army to settle there but critics say many ought to be eligible for the scheme are being denied the chance meanwhile u.s. president joe biden announced the withdrawal of u.s.
5:03 am
and nato troops just a couple of days ago the reason the translators who help them are so scared is that the taliban which is resurgent in the country branded them national traitors and considers them legitimate targets i mean again says interpreters have been left traumatized. i am regularly in touch with afghan interpreters who are searched for the british army and there are still a psych in afghanistan and they are not aware of their future they are living in trauma and fare every day not knowing what could happen tomorrow or next they didn't so the situation is very risky for and with us in afghanistan unless the british government acts quickly and introduces an inclusive scheme that allows all interpreters to relocate to the u.k. the situation will not be resolved our part of the international. mission subjective in afghanistan was to secure europe and american borders from the threat
5:04 am
of terrorism so afghans who joined the international forces and worked as interpreters alongside these forces they are actually the core of the ends of the safety and security of europe and america leaving them behind is not a way off more ality. and human. french prosecutors have opened a case after the photos of 20 officers were plastered on walls in the paris suburbs slowed to fear is the policeman's families may be identified and even threatened for a good bill from a french police union says that the stunt was meant as a threat on issues that we report these are blatant threats intended to intimidate police offices were all troubles and concerns the officers identified as families worried and were concerned for their families you may think it's the 1st time but it's not the 1st time this has happened. we've also seen officers being named in
5:05 am
other areas it's scary enough that we no longer have boundaries and there are people who lame officers families without hesitation and it seems to me that matthew like behavior and intimidation is encroaching into our private lives because with the police. well the intern comes as french lawmakers passe. controversial global security bill penalizing the spread of images of police officers in operation is found guilty can face a sentence of up to 5 years behind bars and a 75000 euro fine the bill itself has been slammed by civil rights groups and n.g.o.s and the french public has been angrily protesting against it for months. i . i i. i. i i. i.

i i i. but francis police organizations insist the lore is needed to protect officers and their families thank you. we try to protect ourselves but it's true there are limits the police have to protect the general population but who defends the police article 24 some things are progressing well but it's not enough we are now waiting for the restrictions to be introduced to soon as possible the alliance police union demanding that the faces of police officers are blurred it's not to hide what happens during the arrest because the i.g.n. police watchdog receives the body count footage everyone is worried about the police making a mistake we want the police to have their faces blurred to protect officers and their families because as we've seen some people don't hesitate to identify officers wives children their addresses and this is
5:07 am
a big problem that we want to avoid. a recent parliamentary session got rather heated when a member was accused of spreading fake news starts after he questioned the transparency of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons by you would you not heed calls from an. international figures to meet with all the investigators are you going to investigate all aspects in a transparent manner clickable seen what are the. i'll begin by saying what i feel i have to say after what i have just heard there is no peace with fake news and i would like to. to the director general of the o.p.c. w. for what he has just cannot accept that you can call into question the work of an international organization is there no freedom of speech he was allowed in the european parliament anymore we're never going to let you don't have the floor i missed it while it's the subcommittee should keep it on the o.p.c. w. has been looking into allegations of chemical weapons use in syria's civil war and
5:08 am
accuse president bashar al assad of deploying toxins against his own people on several occasions something syria denies one of the most prominent cases of which multiple doubts have been raised was in 2018 in duma. of the reaction to the incident from the n.p.a. at the receiving end of that fake news charge make wallace who himself says it was a convenient way of trying to silence. this is a very popular tour. in europe and the u.s. . uses almost like
5:09 am
a right side as i said earlier the president said back to earth we should. start wars too well she's dead right to start wars and when the days attack took place. it was used time by the us. to illegally parked syria so that was. causing war and what the 1st seed was a quarter to either science or risk if you started by and i didn't peacefully started . we want to troops and we want peace. meanwhile a panel of experts convened in 2019 rejected that the chlorine cylinders used to deliver the toxic gas in duma had been dropped from the air and that had been a key argument in laying the blame for the attack on the syrian army based on whistleblower data the panel decided the o.p.c. w. reports on the doomer attack relied on false premises and was deliberately mass to
5:10 am
yield a biased conclusion. while this again thinks if the o.p.c. w. had nothing to hide it wouldn't of turned a blind eye to the whistleblowers revelations about the duma far. the o.p.c. don't them can be a viking international organization that can help. the demise of the use of chemical weapons but o.p.c. don't you has to read it better and write it down it just like to do the right the director general of the l c w or no no i didn't it looks like. there is a if earned under our ears i was going to die and if they hadn't behaved well and they have handled this whole episode well they have nothing to fear nor a zation who has nothing to hide and is sure that they're telling the truth would be afraid to have to investigate and if they refuse to have
5:11 am
a transparent investigation into this whole matter then it is actually a precise story against. the bottle drinking water brand then it's made a splash for all the wrong reasons has been accused of islamophobia ever tweet that encourages people to drink more water so the davis case plans to me this is perhaps nothing more than a bore to something to cling to this week but the ground everyone has found it still feels so very hopeful to hear your friends think who is that they were thinking full there's a lot left to be had to be a victim of intellectual terrorism and it all started with the tweens seems and this isn't enough ryan's retreat if you've had a little of war i don't necessarily even say water i mean real supposed to drink to me to sit day but knew this reminder of a staple for human life was put at all 1st day of ramadan
5:12 am
a festival with muslims for. during daylight hours the reaction king and false. i have to explain to my mother how it is normal for everyone to tweet about water even during ramadan because she thinks they are islamophobia yo it's ramadan you're abusing it here and issued an apology coming to coors in the offense inside the closed doors kanzi without any saw it in sinking even deeper into cultural sea. i would never buy every and again inadmissible to apologize it's basically a cool health message and yet you have to apologize if in 2021 asking for drinks water since provoke it if you should have a consultation. every umbrella under attack for advertising water on ramadan day for some islamists muslim festival should be imposed on everyone well no let's stop
5:13 am
this madness soon was ending we need to this is a long way off through here in paris people read the battlefield boy that allegation. for me no i saw the controversy i saw the to eat frankly i think it could be in my opinion there was no bad intention and they deleted the tweet to avoid unnecessary control the scene but not at all because they felt guilty. for me it's not a slam a for the i don't understand it like that for me would denigrate a star when we say look at her she still veiled for me there's a slum a full get. him or madonna when i'm doing my ramadan i know where to start in the morning and it goes on until the evening i don't eat so i don't drink it has nothing to do with business or anyone else if someone tweets like this i don't care how many muslims also took to twitter to say that they didn't think that tweet by everyone was. leading so to question the way that any muslim had. been
5:14 am
left insulted by evian or if somehow this whole story was the result of they were. playing it rather see so what do you see paris. the soyuz spacecraft with 3 crewmembers on board on earth after 6 months in orbit the international space station expedition consisted of 2 versions and an american he can see nasa is being held out of the capsule once they've had their medicals. so good. for expected to fly back home where they were placed on the us s. by a special mission to blast off as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the 1st human spaceflight amanda the prophet to the stars is getting even more congested soon. will agree to a new crew on a space x. crew dragon spacecraft. joe biden's infrastructure

package is relatively little public support part of the problem. with the plans about took a closer look after the break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic developing the only mostly exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.

global tourism crippled by the pandemic is scrambling for ways to get travel started again and some agencies over to turn a crisis into an opportunity by offering vaccine vacations with russia among the most popular destinations.
5:17 am
today we have around 80 people in moscow who if they want to can be vaccinated tomorrow and fly back on sunday we expect now every week the same quantity so long as the vaccines in jodi escapes. notice that i have no fears because it sort of recommended vaccination from the w.h.o. but utah's a good international reputation so if i'm not well i have no concerns. operatives bookmaker paul i'm going to i want to receive the vaccine myself quicker than we would get it enjoyment and potholed as a 19 year old or i would receive
5:18 am
a postulate and my father is in the interest of patients and board opportunity for him or actually door because i want to protect my family and i don't want to remember the clarus home body i think i would probably get my turn at the end of the year and i don't want to wait that long if i had other options such as serbia and israel to iraq and the united states but all fell away for various reasons and not so this was the best offer at the end. of the demo canals that would be suspending use of the astra zeneca vaccine the 1st country to issued outright ban it seems any good q. has for want of other e.u. states wanting to snap up its stockpiles will contact denmark to find out how to apply for these vaccines. denmark has announced that it's suspending vaccination with astra zeneca i instructed the ambassador of the czech republic in copenhagen to contact the danish authorities immediately and to announce the czech republic's interest in purchasing all astra zeneca vaccines from denmark we addressed the
5:19 am
issue yesterday and said that if denmark were to consider offering these supplies we would certainly be among those willing to take them the curbs as a united nations are still suffering from vaccine shortages that is a 5 member states including some of those now asking for denmark supplies raised concerns over what they see as the unfair distribution of jobs across the bloc austria's chance of the claim some countries assigned secret contracts to get more vaccines microbiologist at reading university simon clarke also believes that that's the case. we have seen other countries go out broncho beyond. the common policy to use their economic position to be able to get hold of extra vaccine so there is you know they're up there taking their share of the common european purchase and then topping that up on their own so what we see is situation where there is not equal distribution of vaccines across europe which is the whole point
5:20 am
of. common purchasing practice in the 1st place. google misled users in australia about collecting their personal location data that's the ruling that came from the countries federal court and it could land the tech giant with an enormous fine australia's fair trade watchdog which of fog a lawsuit to cloud the ruling a world 1st and said it has a very clear message that all digital platforms what the court found was that google misled consumers into thinking that if they turned off location history then that would stop google storing and keeping or collecting and keeping the personally identifiable location data when in fact that was not the case. well the judge in the case ruled that some new users were misled during the initial set up process of the android devices users weren't informed that even if they had the location
5:21 am
history button disabled and to baiting another tap tap called the web an hour practive it would mean google could still collect their location data and it's not the 1st time the australian competition regulator and the tech behemoths clashed last year google along with facebook were obliged to pay news organizations even if their content was posted on their platforms now google said that it rejects this latest ruling on location data stating the claims by the watchdog were too broad and that the judge's findings only concerned a narrow class of user company said it is considering an appeal internet law expert and social media solicitor cohen assess the impact of the ruling. google doesn't care the company's found to be far too monopolistic google doesn't care about reputation because there is no real competition out there google also doesn't care about a small a relatively small financial penalty because it's got plenty of money so the only
5:22 am
way we can have google starting to care about those sort of the things is by either forcing the company to break up and start creating some real competition or and imposing huge penalties the realities that now they got caught again the australian court found them guilty of effectively cheating on their own customers. the question is what's going to happen next the question is whether google is likely to be detailed by disfavoring. turbines availed a new infrastructure package that's left a lot of people confused in part because it is a mixed bag containing all sorts of measures that don't seemingly have much to do with infrastructure such as jobs and environmental issues and i 3rd of americans
5:23 am
support the bill to unpack it his and his caliber weapon. joe biden's infrastructure plan is getting a fair amount of criticism polls show the country is pretty divided when it comes to the plan itself but overwhelmingly americans do agree that infrastructure should be a priority joe biden is selling the plan as a jobs creator then american jobs plan is an investment in america that will create millions of good jobs rebuild our country's infrastructure and position the united states to compete china public domestic investment as a share of the economy has fallen by more than 40 percent since the 1960 s. then merican jobs plan will invest in america in a way we have not invested since we built the interstate highways and won the space race. a plan to get america moving again and get those cast aside by the pandemic back into the workplace has certainly got america talking with the word infrastructure very much on everyone's lips a sweeping new infrastructure plan to rebuild roads and bridges across this country
5:24 am
biden vowed infrastructure investments could create 5000000 new jobs and bring back the pandemic jobs lost president biden in pits her yesterday promising to create jobs in 5 climate change with a sweeping 2 trillion dollars infrastructure plan infrastructure means roads bridges highways it cetera however there seem to be some other items thrown in there too such as health care and benefits for business now democrats are not exactly clarifying the confusion paid leave is infrastructure childcare is infrastructure ok given is infrastructure supreme court expansion is infrastructure are you feeling confused well you're not alone many are starting to wonder if this is just a democratic party spending bill with all kinds of items thrown in as they are now considered to be infrastructure democrats infrastructure proposal goes way beyond what's working americans would call infrastructure it tries to use
5:25 am
a bipartisan issue is the children holes for touch hikes miscellaneous liberal policies we need to tackle infrastructure in a more targeted way so what exactly is infrastructure 2 trillion dollars after all is quite a bit of money $1.00 thing is pretty clear while americans don't care much for red tape and bureaucracy they do want better roads and bridges kaleb mopp and artsy new york. thank you company all return with updates on the top stories in 30 minutes.

psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients rather they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term they really work the problem is in the long term and mostly disastrous suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms most serious than the condition it was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up to something wonderful and very often there are full effects it up to something terrible can build. probably trying to medicate life itself i just think i was in
