o'clock in the morning on tuesday when there was an explosion at the chemical park just behind me here, the ah ah, it's been a huge clue of black cloak into the sky, could be seen for miles and miles around and caused huge panic amongst local residents, now 2 people have confirmed to being killed on the site following the explosion. and the subsequent fire over 30 people were injured. some of those at a very serious condition. there is also 3 people who remain missing following this explosion and fire the chaos which it caused. well, as still being felt many hours after the fire itself was put out,
3:03 am
it took fire services 3 hours to do that. they were on the scene very quickly. hundreds of fire and police services on the scene, but it did take as they say over 3 hours for them to put bad out the traffic chaos that it is caused around the area here of labor cruise and is still on going. it's right in the evening now on tuesdays and speaking to you. a lot of the roads around here all still very much heavily on the diversions this area in lay the crews and just to the north of the huge german city of cologne is incredible. hope for traffic, but also incredibly important when it comes to the chemical industry. this is one of the main centers for chemical giants of germany like via and laxness. now it was this facility that they are connected to as well. this particular area dealt with the disposal of waste. now that's still words on exactly what could have caused
3:04 am
this explosion and fire, much of what is just over my shoulder a little bit further beyond those initial buildings has been destroyed by that. and it seems that the investigation into what caused this will go on for a while now. now there was huge concern in the immediate aftermath that something could have been put into the atmosphere, which would have caused grave danger to the millions of people that live in this part of germany. it's the most densely populated parts of the country. this area of north run with valia takes in the major cities not only of lay the cruise and the load dusseldorf and the plume of smoke. the effects from the plume of smoke were felt as far away to the north west as in tall as well. no people were told initially get inside, keep your windows and doors close and that was while tests were being carried out to see if there was anything toxic in the air. it took
3:05 am
a few hours before the emergency services to determine that there was no immediate risk. but this has certainly given a huge shock to the people of this area. and it has been an incredibly tragic incident. so those people working the cam park, the people behind it, the people responsible for this facility, expressing their condolences for the dead as people looking to try and determine what exactly caused this tragedy to take place here in germany. just to, to peter's piece, local authorities war in this situation post alec stream threat. while the colleges fear toxins may have been released into the atmosphere. senior lecturer in environmental sustainability and green technology, dr. shar, enjoy safe. it is vital to find out fast. what actually was discharged during the incident can show it and she it's not your issue, but the contamination that you can see. it's not contamination that you can't say
3:06 am
this, the what the blacks and i can see is particular that that is going travel quite a distance from the side to. so that was where the band i think is what we're concerned about is not just the immediate, the immediate range. and this is why the venture so significant because it's close to those populated areas. so we can have this pollution spread in a long way going fast. so i went to the, i don't, it's going to be a gas in the other people. and also when, when does that? so it may then move again, if it's soluble, wayne's, and then or the travel. again, the challenge here is to figure out exactly what is being displayed. and then to figure out how to contain it. and as to make sure that you know, habits people a u. s. diplomat in mexico could
3:07 am
spend the rest of his life behind bars after admitting that for more than 14 years he'd been drugging and then raping numerous women. he pleaded guilty to firming at least $23.00 victims. but despite the scandal, the story's gone largely unnoticed by the american media. with more on that, here's tunnel quarter. sexual abuse is committed over a decade in 6 countries against drug to victims and documented in hundreds of videos and photos taken without consent. that's what a former worker at the u. s. embassy in mexico has just pleaded guilty to me. i i use
3:08 am
brian, jeffrey raymond is now on trial back at home in the us, having worked for his government for 23 years in various missions across the world . other than that, we don't know much about his diplomatic career. the f. b, i launched an investigation into him after he abruptly left to mexico last year, shortly after a nude woman was seen screaming for help from the balcony of his mexico city apartment. she says she doesn't remember what happened the night before, except that he'd offered her food and drinks. eventually, the federal agents obtained warrant to search his home in the u. s. and was able to comb through his electronic devices, leading to a number of serious charges in march 2020, approximately 2 months before his interaction with 87 ramos also text the same friend mentioned above about having sexual intercourse with 8989. he's a resident of mexico and primarily spanish speaker. he text to the same friend that he had to pay for a new birth for a benign and expressed that he was annoying,
3:09 am
but ultimately worth while, because he was able to have sex with her. raymond could face life in prison if convicted and the justice department is adamant on sending a tough message. brian raymond betrayed the trust, grunted to him as a u. s. government employee represent in the united states abroad by engaging years of predatory conduct sexually abusing exploiting and recording vulnerable women. he targeted in the united states and around the world. as demonstrated by ramon's prosecution and plea. the department of justice and law enforcement partners will use all of the tools that are disposal to hold accountable those who victimized women, despite the severity of the allegations, the confessions, and the potential impact on america's global reputation. for some reason, the mainstream media is not talking much about this story. i wonder why mainstream media completely ignored the story as big as that becomes what, what we would call all over the world propaganda. where your media,
3:10 am
your news reporting had become an arm of a political party or a political factions. we have to rely on for media outlets on anybody on regular civilians. here in the us trying to post definitely stories like this. because that is public interest, much of the questions regarding the f b, i know about the how many years to date of the rug and still allow security clearance. people top secret clearance to go through for that person knowing what they knew. i mean, are they, in essence responsible, i mean, in a court of law with a climate this magnitude. if somebody knew about this and allowed the person to continue perpetuating these criminal act again into that condition, they call that aiding and abetting. they would call that they would call that either a conspiracy, a knowledge to act or at the very least, $8080.00 felon. and so these are the things that we need to know. ok
3:11 am
to another ra headlined stories today, an american whistleblower has been sentenced to almost 4 years in prison for leaking classified information about america's drone program, while serving anthem by grim or bass. in afghanistan, a decade ago, daniel hale helped identify targets for assassination when he returned home in 2013, he shared secret details about the drawing program, with journalists from the intercept, revealing the true extent of civilian casualties in the middle east and africa. and march hail pleaded guilty to leaking classified documents. we spoke to whistleblower and former us intelligence officer, john courier who attended hail sentencing. hearing the mood was one of great apprehension and the court room was packed for daniel hale. it was all quite dramatic, but we were apprehensive because we really didn't have any indication of which way the judge was going to go. and then he surprised everyone by clearing the court
3:12 am
room and feeling it for 2 hours. while the justice department argued in a classified venue for a sentence of 9 years to me, the fair verdict would have been to, to, for the judge to come off the bench, shake his hand, thank him for his service to the country and let him go home to his family, i didn't think he deserved any prison time at all because he revealed a crime that was being committed by the u. s. government, the crime of, of the murder of innocent civilians. these are war crimes when, when we know that civilians are within the strike rage, that makes it a crime when we kill civilians and then put in the official report that they weren't children for example, they were go. that is a war crime and it became a matter of course, it became something that many drone operators and their supervisors were doing. a head of the sentencing hail wrote a letter,
3:13 am
a detailing some of the things he witnessed in his work, including the death of 2 children in one strike. he also slum the claim of former president, proc obama, that drone killings abroad, protected americans the policy of drew, an assassination, was being used to mislead the public, that it keeps us safe. whenever i encounter an individual who thinks that drone warfare is justified and reliably keeps america safe, i remember that time and ask myself how i could possibly continue to believe that i am a good person deserving of my life and the right to pursue happiness. please strode circle 24 hours a day and delivering depths from the skies have turned most of the muslim world against us. it's been completely counterproductive and i think hail understood that and he sought to inform the american public. but we can't have a debate. we don't know the truth and we know the truth about drones because of the courage of daniel. and it's not just about going after someone like hail,
3:14 am
it's really kind of a death blow to the press itself because it prohibits the press from shining a light on the inner workings of ours. it's really the misuse of the espionage act which has been continued. another well known with the lower edward snowden house commented on the case on twitter. he condemned the court's decision and praised hale. we've got reaction as well from brandon bryant's a former drone operator who also lifted the lid on was his work really involved. he sees in the choice between ignoring civilian killings and making the truth public. his conscience made up his mind. it's really a war on, through the night, just whistle blowers. we've got people that have been propagating this war over in the middle east for almost 2 decades. now. the government is at war with its own people. if you can't, you're part of the machine. the car runs this machine,
3:15 am
yet you have to bear witness for it. not just an unfeeling part of the machine you're dealing. and eventually you have to find yourself in the middle of that storm and be like, you know this. i have to do. i have to do this because if i don't do it, who's going to i find it strange that conscientious individuals that are inside the program that are trying to hold us accountable for the obvious blayton war crimes that we ourselves are doing are being punished. and it seems that they're punishing people in order to make them an example. and that really does to serve me, especially if america supposed to be this great country and freedom fighter amongst the world. how we're punishing our own people who are trying to do that. this is our see, here's no shortage of fear. is a hearing into what led to the capitol hill, riots back in january emotional, but is everyone convinced by what they heard?
3:16 am
so my hello, driven by a dreamer shaped by those in me i think we dare to ask me. ah
3:17 am
ah me ah, we start to state sides again tuesday saw the 1st hearing of a special u. s. congressional panel tough with investigating the capitol hill right back in january emotions were running hydra the session. although it seems not everyone was convinced by the words, herds with some years, even calling it a performance. democracies are not defined by our bad
3:18 am
days were defined by how we come back from bang the bad days. how we take accountability for that. i have faith because of folks like you and i am, i don't expect this will be quite so much later, but it's it must be an adam, a thing today me the the ah, the in the special commission consists of lawmakers from both parties. but critics claim
3:19 am
their minds were already made up with most known further anti trump views. ortiz kill up and is following the hearing as congress. here is testimony about the events of january 6. it seems we've been hearing both police officers and politicians crying their eyes out. i was assaulted in nearly killed. i lost my life . there was a very good chance i would be torn apart. this is how i'm going to die. defending the sanctions. the indifference shown to my colleagues is disgraceful. some are looking at this panel and saying it's simply impartial. we're not hearing both sides of the story. questions about about what kind of went wrong and whether or not the capital police allowed the protesters to enter. if they made a mistake or, or somehow doors were left on guarded, what exactly happened? people are looking at. this is saying it's not an impartial hearing. it's speaker the house nancy pelosi was being widely blamed for the fact that we can rational committee investigating the january 6 events which is convening today of hearing
3:20 am
contains only anti trump republicans. it is a bipartisan panel, but there are no trump supporters represented on it. there are simply anti trump democrats, as well as anti trump. republicans, this seems to be what congress is focusing on at the moment. amid surging coven cases, a continued migrant surge on the us border. rising inflation and poll saying that more than half the countries say things are moving in the wrong direction. that is not what congress is focusing on. rather they have decided to re live and rehash the events of january 6th on capitol hill. well, even democrats, a word, they're facing mid term elections, the economies in the toilet to covey, this threatening come back, we're told, and they have to do something to demonize their enemies. and that's what they're doing. that's pretty unprecedented. that the republican liter kevin mccarthy is choices to sit on the committee were rejected. certainly doesn't suggest that it's a bipartisan committee. the 2 people, the pillows he chose,
3:21 am
instead of them are to who voted to impeach trumpet that serves the purpose. the purpose of this is not to get to the bottom of what happened on january 6. i don't support people who do violence. people who attack police officers, of course they should be prosecuted. let's not forget in the summer of 2020, in just one so called protest in front of the white house. 60 secret service agents were hurt or injured by george floyd riders. we never had these gut wrenching hearings like this crying in front of the cameras, which we saw kids are going to and others do today for them. i have that i am not a trump voter. i am not a republican, but it's very clear what this is about to be. it's a show trial is to establish a narrative and it's very, very ugly. giving the program or no swiss prosecutors have dropped a decade long investigation into suspected russian money laundering due to a lack of evidence, the ruling and the case which was open following allocations by the hermitage.
3:22 am
those capital management investment fund. it's co founder bill broader was later convicted of texas asian in russian, my colleagues acreage done off, and rory, so she discuss the case earlier. the investigation has not revealed the evidence that will justify charges being brought against any one in switzerland. the decision has therefore been taken to close the proceedings was a very long investigation into what was suspected to be a dirty money scheme that was run by the russian officials between 20082010. that was the allegation. and like, in every case, there's a plaintiff under the defendant. so russia was supposed to be on the receiving end of justice. and the plaintiff was the capital fund, which was found headed by bill brown brown. and his fund 4 years they were investing into russia. in fact, the fund was the largest for an investor into the country. and so browed acclaimed,
3:23 am
he was defrauded. and he accused russian officials in siphoning off $230000000.00 through like fake tax checks and so on and so forth. so, and switzerland was alleged to be the main conduit for this dirty money scheme. william brown. how did he receive this news? what might expect no, very well. well, that's a very good guess because he didn't. in fact, getting russia was his and still is his magnum opus. he's obsessed with it. i mean, go and his twitter page, his content is almost exclusively focused on russia, how it is evil, powers corrupt and all these magnets key laws act. at least some of us must have heard of the so called like magnet ski act, magnets kill louis and all that. i re of legislation that the west and like the you in the us are saying targets will corrupt officials, mainly in russia. for example. this me ski, act and list all these,
3:24 am
all this array of legislation. it was named after the former employee of bill brown . so this statement of his it doesn't really come as a surprise swiss prosecutors and drop in money laundering inquiry and magnet ski case. this happened after one of the key officials was court taking bribes from the russians to do just this. a very dog stain on switzerland. in all seriousness though, he blames william, william browed, a blames this on corrupt only corrupts with official, essentially accusing him almost directly and blatantly of derailing the investigation. and indeed, several several swiss officials, they were accused of getting like gifts from russia, and it was alleged that they were doing so in exchange to well discussing this investigation. but this is only happening lately, but even half way through this probe, the prosecutors, they did alert bill brown that the case is going nowhere that it is falling apart.
3:25 am
and that if know if nothing new comes up, if no new information comes up, they will have no other choice but to close it and to say what they've said right now, what they've said just a couple of hours ago that there was no evidence to implicate switzerland to prove that switzerland took played any role in this. and remember switzerland was supposed to be the main conduit in this whole scheme. so if the main conduit doesn't really work, if it, if it has not, if it in reality had nothing to do with the scheme than what to make of others. former pennsylvania's state senator and lawyer bruce marx has questions about bill brauders own reputation bill bout broader off the criminal activity in russia. the 1st lawsuit that i brought in russia and it was again still broader on behalf of russia companies b s m, b o. b, because he was involved in a mass of money laundering campaign that diverted monies from to russian company,
3:26 am
which i'm aware of because i represented b s, m, p o. and the other thing that they found i should add, is that they found that her montage itself, which was the company that bill broader control, wasn't harmed by the activity. and so it dismissed her baton as a you know, as a claimant in switzerland. thousands of national guard members have been mobilized in california to help bustle, fierce wildfires. they'll assist the 22 fellows and firefighters, no attempting to bring the situation under the semblance of control, kinder dry conditions resulting from a severe draught. i've seen the fire spread rapidly with some experts warning the worse this still ahead in late summer and early autumn country hit hard by wildfires. his grace were ablaze, described as one of the biggest in the past 30 years. there has broken it in an
