cathy, my direct my student, moscow, this is art international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. right now sweden has been left stunned by the killing of a police officer. the 1st incident of its kind in more than a decade, a 17 year old swedish man has been arrested. it is unknown if the officer was the initial target of the attack. but the incident comes amid a spike in crime across the country. and the opposition is pointing the finger at migration policy or to talk to taylor comments. after years of trying, he finally landed his dream job on the 4th. but on that dream job, he was killed, apparently caught in the cross has of the gang related incident. the death of a 33 year old swedish policeman. how spark shock in a nation which rarely wakes up to such stories, only twice in the last 20 years. but things are changing because sweden is in the grip of what's been called
8:02 pm
a crime epidemic. be increasing done violence and sweden is unique in comparison with most of the countries in europe. it is a kind of social contagion. if we're shooting takes place, another usually takes place close to it in both time and space with this uptake and violence has become a political battle ground on one side, the government's taken no tolerance on. it would not be my 1st option to bring in the military, but i am prepared to do whatever is necessary to make sure the serious organized crime is stamped out with the opposition party bus suite. and democrats accused the prime minister of failing to name the root of the problem as it sees it. migration, back in 2015, sweden took in the largest number of refugees in the
8:03 pm
e. u. per capita, 160000 in the following year, sex offenses tripled. 2 years later, 73 percent of suspected monitors, one migrants as well, 58 percent of convicted rapists and for tough battles. well, 85 percent of gang members in the country now have an immigrant background from primarily muslim countries. the government has been unwilling to make a direct link, but for those who are cheap patrol the streets, the link makes itself. it is no longer a secret today. that much of the problems of gang and network crime with the shootings and the explosions is linked to immigration to sweden in recent decades. when you like me, have the opportunity to follow cases at the individual level. you see that basically everyone who shoots or a shot in gun conflicts originates from the poconos, the middle east,
8:04 pm
north or east africa voting trends. so how much of a flash point this has become? so back in 2010, the anti immigrant suite and democrats took just 5.7 percent of the vote. in 2018. they took 18 percent and now the 3rd biggest party, the government for its part reading the room just passed a law making refugee residents permit temporary. but for many, it's too little too late. in the meantime, of the rector, it gets more and more heated. the local muslim population is finding that famous re tolar and sweden has a far less tolerant underbelly bonding books. the gang battle hand grenades no go zones. is it any wonder that's fair within that the countries very democracy is that threat whether or not the tide can be turned? one thing is shaw. the image of sweden tolerant sweden,

the st. paven may now be cracking. the french integrity is at risk, according to president micron, who is blaming leftist american ideology for dividing society. he thinks the u. s. is winding the clock back on issues like race and gender. i am seeing society becoming progressively more ratio. we had freed ourselves from this approach, and now we are once more categorizing people according to their race. and by doing that, we're totally placing them under house arrest. is remarks came in an interview with elle magazine at a time when a new generation of activists denounced racism in the country and its colonial past . and our panel also believes that so called woke culture, only sparks division the more than the cancel culture or the overly identity identity type issues. the critical
8:06 pm
race theory are creating divisions, i think, step backward than they and they start to break the society part of the very valid point. i think it's an american import on it. the people to believe in this, essentially trying to use an american blueprint for french society, which is really very different from america. history is very different. race relations are very different. the issue of slavery doesn't exist in france in the way that it exists in america. it has existed but not at all founding the existence of the, the country itself, because actually seen is really decent to, to see the, nobody wants to be told and nobody wants to go. so all of these things are always about anybody's moving. and then if i remember, there is no nation anymore because friends and the other here being counties are to the whole, they are be new,
8:07 pm
very little to me for many gonna important to view the bolder than people do run to other bugs. we know that people and then the one that goes into their whole who she is being discussed with nothing can be done, will be focusing on these identity. and these are the end of the lead to anything that comes from the negative. in some sense, the moment is changing edge exchange content begin the game, but they do that's, that's how that is just them in the facebook says it is combating extremism in the us with a new prompt asking users if they know anybody flirting with violent ideology and it even asks people to report on family and friends if they spot anything on toward, but it is an update that is being slammed as or william art. he's kill him up in comments. in the last few days, the number of facebook users got
8:08 pm
a bizarre message when they logged in. some users got a message saying that they may have been exposed to violent extreme of content. others got a message urging them to report their friends who may be becoming violent extremist, a bit or well in. don't you think? here's what the facebook spokesperson had to say on it. this test is part of our launch work to assess waste, to provide resources and support to people on facebook who may have engaged with or exposed to extremis content. or who may know someone who is at risk, the entire approach condemned that condemns itself. and the fact that like the, the artificial intelligence isn't, doesn't get irony, doesn't get humor, doesn't get the difference between a's and have an anti ation. hey, i can't tell the difference between anything. i don't trust the algorithm. i don't trust the company and thousands of people i know on facebook would like to leave
8:09 pm
that the facebook from never offered a very clear definition of what extremism is, i guess it's in the eye of the beholder. however, facebook has announced the partnership with an n g o based in chicago called life after hate. that is intended to help people escape the violence far right now there's all comes after months of pressure on facebook to crack down on certain viewpoints. you can take this content now, you can reduce division. you can fix this, but you choose not to. you have the means, but time after time you are picking engagement and profit over the health and safety of your users, our nation, and our democracy. the dirty truth is that they are relying on algorithms to purposely promote conspiratorial devices, are extreme, is content so that they can take money more money and ad dollars. we can do this with you or without you. and we will not all users are supporting this new
8:10 pm
initiative, report your extremist france and family based on your own, subjective definition, what could possibly go wrong. facebook once you to tell them if someone you know, is becoming an extremist which these days is synonymous with thinking for yourself and having a backbone. i haven't gotten any warnings from facebook that i might be interacting with political extremists. and it's really making me feel like a nerd with lame france. at this point, facebook has engaged in mass bands of individuals deemed to be problematic. it has taken measures to work against certain news outlets, and it's even given a long term ban to a former us president. but all of that is not enough. americans are still thinking for themselves and asking dangerous questions. so now we have extremism notices. what will be next? this is suddenly and rapidly getting to the ludicrous level of communist,
8:11 pm
political enforcement of thought and ideas. and it is on the one hand, terrifying. and on the other hand amusing because they're going way too far away too fast. and everyone seems to be laughing about, they are responding as if the media is composed entirely of millions of customers who are planning a violent revolution against the government. and it's the social media outfits job to get to the bottom of that and solve it. and they're storing all the data and sharing it with the sitting government. it's ridiculous, there's nobody planning a revolution. there's nothing for them to be concerned about. the business of inflating the danger of right wing extremism is nothing more than them attempting to criminalize political descent in order to shut it down out of fear. it is very much domestic terrorism of the kind. they're accusing the right wing, but it's actually social media trying to scare people into shutting up about things
8:12 pm
. they don't want people to talk about. some world news, in brief, for this hour, these dramatic pictures from the gulf of mexico show a red blaze from a ruptured underwater pipeline. from an oil rate, it is thought a gasoline is to blame the facilities owners and say the flames have now been put out, but there are no reports of death or injuries. this time, the rainy season in japan has triggered a deadly landslide south west of the capital. tokyo 2 people are reporting debt and at least 20 are missing. homes have been flooded or swept away. emergency services are carrying out rescue operations through the night. despite fog limiting visibility and hundreds of workers have clashed with the police at charles de gaulle airport in paris unions called for protests after new contrasts. cut wages management says that they have no choice after the slump in air travel during the pep rally. as far as the delays with some passengers missing
8:13 pm
cyber attacks and this information from abroad and including by foreign spike agencies have for the 1st time and brought into a special section of rushes. national security bill president put in signed into law on saturday, and it is a broad strategy, as ortiz, where i got jeff comments. well, it isn't precisely new, it's rather amended amended for the latest challenges, the latest threats facing russian national security, russian culture, the russian, the russian state says stop, you would expect, such as nathan activity, native encroachment towards russia's borders, as well as the development of sophisticated more sophisticated offensive weapons, there is also a point about rushing national security being threatened by exercise, exercise carried out by native states with, with regards to the use of nuclear weapons. but those are, those are traditional threats. that's much more in the threats. potentially,
8:14 pm
the threats that are already emerging, such as the inflammation and psychological attacks on russia other than the political pressure, the military pressure, the economic pressure. there is an effort on the way to sort of de, stabilize russia according to this report, from within and from, without, from outside, by destructive actors who are seeking to harness you know, public anger with, because of because of the hardships that russians face. for example, because of the pandemic, the economic woes that that is caused, and some actively seeking to use that i get to do to directed against the russian state. at the same time, the reports obviously recognizes that there is a need for social justice. there is a need to purge corruption and marcia, for more effort to be made and effective governance as well. i need to protect russian culture and identity, traditional values in the country. it goes on to list. hopefully you get a sign that things are going the wrong way,
8:15 pm
such as you being more patriotic nowadays than perhaps in the pot. there is also the climate reference, the emerging and the significant threat of climate change. russia, of course, experiencing it more than many other states in the world, but regarding the temperature changes and, and how the weather change there, the melting of the permafrost and rushes north. it also says that russia must guarantee and develop blue carbon technologies to safeguard its fugette and national security. so having the program, bridging the generation gap in the pen democrats, a 9 year old streams excited classes to the delight of care home residents will have a look at her story and the positive reaction she's received after short break. this is our international i use
8:16 pm
what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk i and now we're in an area where we're trying to save the planet. we want to be able to use energy and have special live, but also to live on a healthy planet. and the challenge of energy is the emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that we're trying to manage. and there's many different ways of doing that. the transitions have begun in transition, and it's proceeding along many different ways with
8:17 pm
the news. ah, the o. well, come back. this is our to international millions in britain who have received an indian made astrazeneca vaccine may find it difficult to travel to continental europe. and that is because the use medicines agency still hasn't approved the jap with more on that. his art is shot edwards dusty. while summer isn't dave here in the united kingdom threats hoping to travel across to europe to have a holiday may have to now think again, it comes as millions of people may have been given the wrong job of the vaccination . in fact, they may have been given the india and version of astrazeneca job. now the reason
8:18 pm
why that's an issue is because it hasn't been approved by the e u vaccine. possible scheme. meaning that anybody traveling to europe would have to then enter into that quarantine at period and not able to skip it. now, department for health in the united kingdom here, doesn't really give a number of how many people could actually be affected by this. but it could be as many as 5000000 people because that's the number of doses that were imported throughout the year and 2020 want. meanwhile, the u. k. it's vaccination program. leaders have said the job is just as effective . the most important part of this is that people who have received these, but she should be reassured that they have received exactly the same stuff as people who have received other batches made elsewhere. this is an administrative hurdle that needs to be straightened out over a year. vaccine pass for which was just launched on thursday, only recognizes jobs approved by the european regulator. now on the shells of the
8:19 pm
european union, simply says it's free to request authorization anytime at once. for this point, it hasn't yet done so essentially saying the pool is in cova shields court. however, on a governmental level, e, u, member states are somewhat able to fax and bend the rules almost by allowing travelers with vaccines approved by the world health is ation to use the passport to however, this is where it gets even more complicated considering kind of a show job was widely provided for african countries. the international kofax program says the may is discriminating against those lower income countries. any measured the only allows people protected by a subset of w h o approved vaccines to benefit from the reopening of travel into and with that region would effectively create a to to system further widening the global vaccine divide and exacerbating the inequalities they were since the beginning of the year, the british government long hailed the co vaccination program as that ticket out of
8:20 pm
the pandemic there with a mixed up like this one on. indeed the rise of the delta veteran here in the united kingdom. we only have to look at the last week alone to see a 46 percent rise in the delta variant. it seems that many countries across europe, a very worried about brits coming into the country regardless of which job they've had. and regardless of how many, meanwhile, as britton battles, the new delta covered variant, there are fears the strain will plunge the rest of europe into a 3rd wave of the virus. the city conditions for a new wave of excess hospitalizations and that's before the autumn or dead for in place. new variance deficit in vaccine uptake increased social mixing and there will be a new wave in the dublin to pin region unless we remain disciplined. un warned that the number of new cases across europe jumped 10 percent last week.
8:21 pm
most vaccines are effective against the delta variant, but only 2 shots guarantee, a higher level of protection. now, amid the new variant and worsening statistics that has launched a digital cover certificate to allow people to travel freely across the block is basically a q r code that shows a person's covered status. and whether they are inoculated have tested negative or recovered with antibodies. but it is not totally full proof because the certificates are easy to forge and the system does not check that legitimacy. molecular on college, professor laurence young, highlighted the challenges if we have, as we do differing rates vaccination across europe, then it's going to create some problems i think in terms of travel. and we know that this more infectious variant is spreading. we know the, the various vaccine platforms that have been developed, including the r n, a platforms are being modified now and trial individuals to check that we will be
8:22 pm
able to generate even better protective community against barriers. and i guess it's a case of keeping an eye on levels of, of protection levels of antibodies. so there is a complication to vaccine pulse volts, not only in terms of variance, but also one of the current big unknowns is how long does the protective community induced by the vaccination i to the last, we believe it to be more than 6 months. so there is an issue here about whether or not we're going to have to have some way of just measuring antibodies is not difficult, or a test that you can do this very easily. but it may be that to keep vaccine passports up to date and relevant, we may need to start testing antibody levels in individuals after a period of time to make sure they do have sufficient community. 9 year old girl
