central berlin, when thousands of coven skeptics gathered to protest long running restrictions with police detaining nearly 500 demonstrators. it's just over a day since city leaders banned such rallies over the risk of spreading the disease . yeah, ah, ah, the it was a very chaotic day to day here in bowling lot of protests were announced, protest against the corona measures off the measures of the german government. all of these protests have been forbidden by the german police and later on by the cost . but still the protest just came into the city and they came in high numbers.
11:03 pm
nobody knows exactly how many protests have happened today, but they were in to 1000. the protesters had no point together from everywhere in the city. they were police check police and they sent the people back. so no protest could together. and we are sort of protective gather fossil away from the point where they wanted to stop and protest. they never get it. at one point they were scratched all over this city and walking and small little not just chanting that to me you see goal such down the final destination today for the protest. when the protesters reach this point, the police came up with water cannons and threatened to protest to use those war. we witness a lot of us, we didn't count them a lot of us and sometimes looked a bit arbitrary. the police just went into the crowd and arrested some people. they arrested some musicians, they arrested old people, young people, they arrested hippies. everybody who just stood in their weight seemed to be arrested. and sometimes these arrest was pretty violently. german political analyst,
11:04 pm
bichon tele, solely told us that authorities have taken no issue with similar gatherings that did not challenge their policies the most well, the most content tracked down on opposition in germany to receive reading memory with grace and not telling the government not to go forward and even how the government organized by government coalition to be in the middle of today only the whole thing we're taking is today we're arrested. the german government to berlin regional government allow mach demonstrations over time over 80000 people last weekend for one of your lots of gay rights parade to be held in the street, the park compassion of the mayor. and of course,
11:05 pm
the police are not cracked out on the back. and the reason why they were kissing and the 3 is there, i am the german. but so in the same way the proud of the today should have the ability to take care, right. read them off the family and then the b. e in they are in the job, got an explosion that a major chemical plant in germany killed 5 people with 2 more still missing. please have opened a case of negligent homicide into today's incident. initial investigation suggest there is no risk of public health from toxins. with a more detailed test expected in the coming days of the site is one of the largest chemical parts in europe, employing $30000.00 workers more than $5000.00 chemicals were manufactured at the area including elements for the production of explosives. greenpeace has worse concern over the blasts impact the situation is very difficult for mechanical point
11:06 pm
of view. it is really possible to imagine the huge catastrophe. we have a plan for the incineration of hazardous waste. that is precisely those substances . for obvious, reasons should not tend to the environment they're collected and burned, and it is such a plan that has now suffered an explosion. it was the substances which should not be in the environment. that reacted with each other, burned up and spread in these clouds of gases throughout the region. and we know that the inhabitants did not know what they might be exposed to the explosion on the subsequent fire receive incineration plan just behind me. residents were initially told to remain inside, keep that windows and doors closed. a tentative all clear was given following tests that were carried out by the state and federal environmental protection services. those tests would be looking at the quality of the, the soil as well as looking at re, was set that fallen from cloud sort of been in contact with the huge plume of smoke
11:07 pm
. the enemy emanated from the facility just behind me say they've reported so far, no elevated levels of pollution. but authorities have also said that that pretty sure that talks and were released into the atmosphere following this fire and explosion. now we have seen a lot of messages being given out to people in the local area, warning them not to eat anything that's being grown in their gardens in the, the nearby area. also telling people not to allow children to use playgrounds, don't sits in garden furniture or anybody that has a swimming pool in there by god. not to use that either. there's also the warnings about making sure that you take off footwear, outside of your home. if you're in one of the areas with london now, despite these warnings being given out, activists of sold off, see that while a number of people still unsure what they should be doing to uncertainty to rain people, road to me asking whether they can go out in the gardens and whether we will take
11:08 pm
more samples and this worries me, most of all the people remain the dog. and this is not only the fault of the enterprise. after all, the main problem is that no one knows what says have reacted in what actually happened. and here the main question arises, is it have an acceptable to place this as it were? powder tags, near large settlements. life has pretty much returned to normal and leave a cruise and i'm the surrounding area. we've had condolences being offered to the families of those that died as well as praise for emergency. busy services and rescue as he were on the scene so quickly, but a lot of people looking towards that information we're expecting to hear about long term effects. that could be that this is the most densely populated area of germany . a lot of people living in the nearby surrounding not just of labor crews and but also cities like cologne in the why the area of northrop with folly. a whistleblower in the u. s. has been sentenced to almost 4 years in prison for
11:09 pm
leaking classified information about america's drug program, while serving at the bug around the air base in afghanistan a decade ago. daniel hale helped identified targets for assassination. when he returned home in 2013, he shared secret details about the drug program, with journalists from the intercept on my new site, revealing the true extent of civilian casualties in the middle east and africa in march have pleaded guilty to leaking classified documents, which revealed that 90 percent of strikes have actually hit the civilians. us ramped up it's drawing program during the obama administration. and since then has launched more than 14000 strikes in nations like afghanistan, pakistan, yemen, in somalia. thousands have been killed with more than 300 children among the victims. we spoke to whistleblower and the former us intelligence officer john curiosity, who in the week who attended hills sentencing hearing. the mood was one of great apprehension and the court room was packed for daniel hale. it was all quite
11:10 pm
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 courtroom and sealing 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 too, too, 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 goats. that is a war crime. and it became
11:11 pm
a matter of course, it became something that many drone operators and their supervisors were doing ahead of the sentencing hail wrote to the court detailing some of the things that he had witnessed in his work, including the death of 2 children and a drawn strike, he also slammed the claim of former president brock obama that john killings abroad, protected americans. the policy of drone assassination was being used to mislead the public, that it keeps the safe whenever i encounter an individual who thinks that drove 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. me strode circle 24 hours a day and delivering deaths from the skies. i 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
11:12 pm
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, 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 whistleblower wait in on twitter, edward snowden condemned the court's decision and praised hale. we got reaction from a former us joan operator who also lifted the lid on what his work involved. brandon bryant says, in the choice between ignoring civilian killings and making the public aware his conscience made up his mind. it's really a war on truth nicest whistleblowers. 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. yeah. you have to bear
11:13 pm
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 is 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 disturb 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 the israel's prime minister has threatened to hit back at iran after claiming it has proof that it carried out. thursday's deadly tanker attack in the arabian sea. 2 crew members
11:14 pm
were killed supposedly by a drone strike. on the vessel linked to his rarely billionaire, however, to ron denies responsibility and pledges retaliation if attacked, or policy reports. now from delaware, if pensions can, the region are running high and med concerned that they could be a confrontation between iran and those opposing her safety. we had theme the retreat, increased dramatically, particularly as the israeli prime minister, enough to be bennett has sprung words for karen, shall not be off. so he ron is the one that carried out the attack against the ship . intelligence sources have uncovered evidence of this. and we expect the international community to make it clear to the iranian regime that they have made a serious mistake. in any case, we know how to convey the message to iran in our own way. now the united states and united kingdom have joined israel in pointing as of yet, and substantiated fingers at iran, blaming hope of being behind the tax,
11:15 pm
the secretary of state, and to be blinked and has said to quote that he's confident that iran was behind, that the tech, but united kingdom saying it's highly likely that's around with behind it. but we have heard that phrase highly likely before and very often means that there is no evidence. we believe this attack was deliberate, targeted, and actually a violation of international law by iran. you k assessments have concluded that is highly likely that iran attack the m v most the street in international waters of amman on 29 july using one or more unmanned aerial vehicles. the radio foreign ministry is denying these claims are twice accusing the countries of false accusations. for more to the at the moment. this is not the 1st time the legitimate occupying race in jerusalem has made such false accusations against the blind, the republic of iran. such, it gives a sense of completely unjustified. they must know that the problems will not be resolved by such positions. if those who attempt to strike a blow will face
11:16 pm
a bigger blow, lumnick republic of rock will not hesitate for a moment to protect the interests of the staple and its national security. this is where the prime minister not to be bennett has not been in the hosted for a long time. and his coalition still remains quite shaky. so it's no surprise that he's quite keen to point fingers. eddie ran and ran up the rhetoric, meaning, suggesting that quick means some kind of war is a way for him to gain political point. at the same time, questions being asked over the iranian nuclear deal that the american president joe biden, one to 2 feet renewed with iran in the past. it has been repeatedly scuppered because of america's friendship with his role. so questions are being asked as to the timing of this confrontation now and whether or not it is coincidental, meaning suggesting it's not policy a television. richard becker from the anti war answer coalition believes that when
11:17 pm
is really interests are harmed, its immediate response is average israeli government is hoping to to the rail, the j. c. p. o, a, the reinstatement of the j. c. p. away and in any form, whatever it is, a possibility, it will be a lot on what the reactions are now from the various parties. we do know for sure that on a daily basis that we sent a weekly basis is really we're playing, violate the web and violate the aerospace with syria. carry out not just the violations of aerospace, but bombing inside of syria and many other assaults on around and then very, very outraged and you know, very righteous when something happens that harms their interest. but they do
11:18 pm
not accept really international law at all, except to employ it as a me to weaponized that would be the right way to put it another active, please, fatality has been caught on camera in the us. 2 officers in colorado have been charged over the violent arrest of an unarmed mixed raced man. please be aware that the next video contains graphic violence. oh, what do i do now? oh, i do. put your hands on for you. okay. don't stop it. oh, oh oh, i don't police officers identified car vincent as it being wanted for several offences. after 2 other men fled, he appeared to initially comply with the officers commands during the arrest, but then resisted while being handcuffed. he was subsequently choked forth face down on the ground, and pistol whipped by an officer. vinson was then taken to the hospital,
11:19 pm
needing treatment. the officers in question have been since charged with using excessive force and the local police chief condemned their conduct. does not police work? we don't train this not acceptable. the definition of police were jelly is itself is a problem. you are you, you use the force necessary to effect in a rust. you keep yourself safe to keep the citizen safe and you actually keep the person that you're arresting safe. the job of the police officer, the street cop is not to punish. that's the job of the courts. so white edition, not a punishment for conviction. if so, if a police officer was aware, as was in the case of derrick sheldon, that he was being video camera right. your body cameras recording you and they were this comfortable with their actions. there is a serious epidemic and a serious problem. and then police officers, history needs to be looked into. we need to look at how many times that person been accused, or have they taken excessive force beyond the level of what they were lawfully around the allowed to use. because if somebody feels this comfortable to get this
11:20 pm
out of control on video camera guarantee is that the 1st time they've done this. as an incident like us defined, the police movement is not properly communicated to the public de, from the police moment as a political card. it's what the politicians are using to wind up bolstering their base for more voting. it really just removes programs funding for certain areas for police officers. right, there has been more drama as he took his lympics star us a gymnast simone boughs has sensationally pulled out of all. but one final to focus on her mental health. it's now left to be seen whether or not she will participate in today's balance being final. and while some observers say that her move deserves praise, others claim that she has let down her teammates when they needed her the most. i say put mental health 1st, because if you don't then you're not going to enjoy your sport and you're not going to succeed as much as you want to. so it's okay. sometimes the even set out the big
11:21 pm
competition to focus on yourself on tuesday doing the talk, your lympics individual, all around competition and women's gymnastics sim on bias. one of the greatest athletes to ever grace the sport a for time on the big champion, quite surprisingly for many decided to withdraw from the, from the round and eventually the russian team or r o c. if you may, 1 gold in that discipline. first, it was cited does come on, biles decided to withdraw to medical reasons. then it became clear as cited by the teams entourage and by bio south that this was a mental health issue. it has created quite a whirlwind of reaction. there are those who are strongly accusing and abusing simone bias for withdrawing that i would say spearheaded by pierce morgan, a famous u. k. tv host, who well just fell short of accusing someone violence of being a chicken and checking out on her team. and i saw something that serial winners do
11:22 pm
a mental health issues. now the go to excuse for any poor performance in elite sport. what a joke just admits you did badly made mistakes and was try to do better next time. kids need strong role models, not best nonsense. obviously that has created huge responds online and even some mainstream media jumped in. and if you look at the language that some of these mentioned media like washington post and many others used, you would think that simone biles actually won a gold medal rather than pulling out from the competition. whenever biles pulls on her leotard, it's as though she's tighten in a cape around her neck. she's the hero task to save in a solid sport embodying some tried believe in american dominance, and also carry an agenda and an entire race. that's a heavy cape and it chokes. but it's one that exceptional black women and women of color are tall to wear because simply being great isn't good enough. for some
11:23 pm
reason, many of the media and bonded commentators also decided to bring in her agenda her race into the story which is already creating another type of backlash because people cannot understand what is her decision to withdraw from one particular competition. something she has been preparing for for quite a while, because the lympics is quite important for any athlete in the world has to do with who she has, her skin color and things like that. she went on instagram recently just saying how much of that weight on her shoulder is being hard on her and may be this rift with such reactions coming from both sides would create even more pressure for the 24 year old gymnast with a very difficult boss. right earlier, my colleague roy, she discuss those developments with the panel guests. mental health issue of simone biles. she withdrew. i mean, this must be a very,
11:24 pm
very difficult decision for gigi think perhaps she's set an example. by doing this is a top. it has to be over the years and only recently we thought that people have mental health, and i think the lim picks of the examples. why not express how you really feel that 8 especially kids they they, they, they really try the years and years and they carry the contra mesh. oh does, is okay. have to be like, okay, i have mental health, i'm not going to be able to call the family. she has withdrawn, has bought further attention to her. i mean, if she's sort of quietly underperformed and perhaps explained to the media that, you know, this is just one of those events. you can't be her peak all the time and then quietly slipped away fine. but she really has made an announcement him put mental health health back on the map again. so the importance of mental health issue obviously shouldn't be underestimated. but perhaps of putting that on lympics as
11:25 pm
well is perhaps too much is a sporting event. it should be kept as a sporting event. if one is not ready for one really shouldn't. shouldn't be that. you could only find out sometime, but you're not ready for it when you're there already. in the meantime, german gymnast have chosen to wear full body unit cards instead of the more traditional bikini cuddly at heart. the decision was made to protest the supposing sexualization of athletes. we got reaction from our guests. this whole issue of uniform and the sexualization of women has to go quite soon and it can be so very simply, he just say, here are the uniformed men and women, no different. any sport that tries to segregate male and female on the basis of uniform is really back in the 20th century. one of the biggest things about the atlantic pattern and your skills and the, and what you're judging are charging the uniform and what, what people don't realize. the sex libation of women when they can be very self
11:26 pm
conscious when wearing we're beating clothing which might actually performance. so really, if you really care about the school and the reason that we should allow them to feel confident and wearing, doing a bit of a problem. on the one hand, the olympics is designed to extol, abuse in the perfection of the human body operating at peak efficiency. so it's there to be admired. while the other hand, we have contributed lympics, who may feel uncomfortable with that being a limb. in particular, maybe there's a case for some element of choice, but at the same time we don't want to lose the essence of what they're lympics is. are you afraid perhaps that non sport issues or political ones in particular for example, that could become main talking points in the future olympics? no, i'm not worried. i think it's a great opportunity. we seen so many changes already. i'm not worried. i still feel like eventually it will kind of not slide down, but we will respect respect for now. i'm happy to different lympics. that's pretty
11:27 pm
that way. it's an a everyone watching on tv and watching, you know, 68 tests and say to stadium with everything they can pretend i'm enjoying it as much as i do. other olympics i have to say, well it should be confirmed because we don't want to be just a vehicle for the latest. 5 that comes along. lympics should represent social moles as they change, but it needs to prevent its own central brand needs to keep continuing to keep that . wow. right. so that we have, when we see the olympics are there with their own specific procedures and, and, and habits and ways. and that's the beauty olympics, that's what we want to say. we don't want to make it to the temporary to trans unit . and just this waveform insane does a for me, this hour. i'll be back with another of the weekly in about 32 and a half minutes. stay with us. the
11:28 pm
look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, accept where's the short or conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. at the point obviously is too great truck, rather than fear i would take on various jobs with artificial intelligence, real summoning the theme and a robot must protect its own existence with what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have crazy foundation. let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development only personally,
11:29 pm
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 to me. i the news i'm action returns here. we're going to go revealing the story is hidden by a leads coming up in the show as be 54th session of the i p. c. c needs for the latest report card for the environment. amidst catastrophic floods and fires, we ask one of the i p ccs lead authors if capitalism and climate protection compatible and as towns in the u. southwest revolt against wealthy 2nd homeowners
