i'm using other advanced technologies. there has been on the defensive headline here. we're not international tea. iraqi prime minister survives an alleged assassination attempt after its residents is attacked by drones packed with explosives. now all of this comes off to brutal riots in baghdad over the contested election weeks up storage or an r t, a whistleblower report in the british medical journal of points to serious flaws in the testing of 5 as covert vaccine. so far, usaa authorities have been reluctant to investigate them. and cobit skeptics rally in germany against tough new government restrictions, while infection rates soar to an old time record. also a canadian comedian is let off the hook by judges and canada, who ruled that his joke mocking a disabled singer did not amount to discrimination. so we put the issue up for
2:01 am
debate. the must be a stop between hatred and comedy, between violence and free speech, no one saying there shouldn't be consequences. but the argument is the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a less actually not allowed to criticize someone. ah, your timing is perfect for the weekly of every will. welcome to you and good morning. it's about a 10 o one on sunday here in moscow. well, top story full today is that of the iraq. he prime minister has a apparently now survived and alleged assassination attempt emerging unheard according to government officials, his residence in the capital. baghdad was targeted early on sunday by drones packed with explosives. let's get details now with auto policy now. in the early hours on
2:02 am
a sunday morning, wretched time, the prime minister, most of our dinning escape and made assassination attend to what we are hearing from the militant is that the attack was carried off by a number of thrones laden with explosives that struck the prime minister's residence, which is inside the green zone in baghdad. now we are also hearing that the prime minister has reassured the country that he's fine moments off to that a need to the tap he took to twitter and he urged so calm, interest rains. cowardly rockets, android attacks don't build homelands, don't build a future. we work towards building a countries to respect to the states and its institutions and building a better future for all iraqis. so we call again for carbon constructive dialogue for iraq and the feature of iraq saw no one has came responsibility for these attacks that there has been did leave a text in baghdad, particularly finding the results of
2:03 am
a general election that were held on the 10th of last month, the need is that are disputing the results of that election of heaven on iranian backed militia who lost much of a toilet maintain power in those last elections. so they quote unquote history and at the same time focus to support and had taken to cease. and last friday, it was a day, the incident in which the one protest it was killed. ah, the most powerful leaders of the iranian best locks had opened the plains, the prime minister for the day felt that po, taste and those fine in cash as an example, pursuing now from a spokesperson of them,
2:04 am
is the suggestion that this report of and it makes the destination attempt might just be a full sag to try and cover up the way with how the government dealt with those lines and protests on friday. the i'm gonna send, however, has ordered an investigation into that incident. and he has all said compensation to the victims. the united states, of course, is watching events po, see as they point out, the military from iraq. the deadline is due to be the end of this year. and the united states condemned the incident while at the same time offering assistance to the victims. we are following the reports of drone attack. these apparent act of terrorism which we strongly condemn, was directed to the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable, the another se cents with the government and people of iraq. now the united states was amongst those countries who praised the results of the iraqi parliamentary connections. so of course, alongside being military with school,
2:05 am
they are going to be watching the situation very, very carefully. and it's very important at this time that there is some kind of piece in the rest committee. he's of the, the with school that is happening and which will happen by the end of this year if he did on is to be a kid to shows and the german company by on tech i joined about up of the pfizer cobra vaccine, have now plunged 20 percent. this follow several setbacks including a whistle blows report and the british medical journal, pointing to serious flaws in last year as vaccine trials. as on his lip, a trend co now investigates. how many people do you know, who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety? well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know
2:06 am
better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career, but had never experienced such a helter skelter work environments. as we've been harvey on pfizer trial, i don't think it was good clean data. the employee said of the dates of interview generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firms tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower who had worked for vent audio for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over. quite
2:07 am
a list of issues including things like this. bob with the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents, photos, and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to was to supervise an american contractor on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency in charge the food and drug administration know about any of that. within ours, jackson, we received an email from the sta, thanking her for her concerns, and notifying head to the sta,
2:08 am
could not come in on any investigation that might result a few days later. jackson received a call from an f t a and spencer to discuss her reports, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no, or at least were notified. did that lead to any oversight of the company? by the regulator? the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in 5 as briefing document submitted sta advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems of the vents, obvious sites. the next day to issue the emergency use authorization of the vaccine . a few more details that right disconcert a summary of f d, a. inspections of pfizer vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent avia and no expection had
2:09 am
been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authorise zation and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been toby up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children, and young adults, a cobit 19 trial involving pregnant woman and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic, and in a global pandemic, we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty, we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance. and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being, the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospects in the future.
2:10 am
okay. not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical giant. but what i want to be confident about is that someone competent, whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the fall. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. we've contacted pfizer on van harvey if a comment on the claims, as well as posing further questions for the us food and drug administration. we'll let you know if they respond. meantime, doctor randy bra, consultant physician for britons and h. s. things vaccine development has just fallen victim to corporate. greed by the has full made is by no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that their commercial interests is compromising bay clinical and research objectivity. and judgment toward this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of science. i think that of course,
2:11 am
could of applied more people to the trolley, kind of adequate staff to run the trial. in appropriate wayne is a constant commercial pressure even with the sub contractor to make profit. so to have the fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, commercial interest is pressuring and, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug with thousands of protesters gathered in the drum and city of leipzig on saturday, against the government's latest covered restrictions. as scuffles broke out of police moved into dispatch the crowd. several people were injured as we understand a 20 protesters arrested. this comes amid reco daily and veteran numbers in germany . it's now in the top 5 countries for daily cases. and the latest wave is taking a toll on hospitals. the number of patients and intensive care has surged in recent days, walked one doctor, and i knew him bugs as a health care system is just being pushed to the absolute limit. for us,
2:12 am
the situation is very tense, all the beds are full, we're still trying to take care of the ordering cases as best we can. on the one hand, we treat many cobra's patients, but we also have to provide the rest of the medical care that is normally done. hospitals all reach the limits, especially the larger hospitals that kind of for the most severe patients, both with and without cove, it for medical stuff, we're now in the 4th wave. annette is a huge burden. whatever. so several, a german regions are now preparing some hard hitting new measures as our europe correspondent, peter oliver. now reports cove and figures in germany to not make for good reading as the theatre. 4th wave is very little to whistles. if we do not acts this 4th wave will again bring a great deal of suffering. many people will fall seriously ill and die, and the health services will be under extreme pressure again. around 67 percent of the german population is fully vaccinated, but the numbers coming forward has plateaued in recent months. prompting politicians to fear that
2:13 am
a new type of pandemic could be upon us. we are currently experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated, which is massive. there would be few karone of ours patients on intensive care units. if more people would let themselves be vaccinated. the big worry now is that those people who haven't gone for a vaccination have no intention of doing so. and that may well lead to more restrictions on what people who haven't been jobs can do. if the pandemic situation in hospitals worsens than further restrictions for unvaccinated people are possible, some of germany, 16 states on waiting for a federal decision to be made. and i've already put in place new measures in bavaria mass, squaring will be mandated in schools. in the state of hassan, there's going to be a new testing system put in place for those. going to visit hospitals, old care homes, and in the state of bottom voting book, while you're going to need to show a p c r test,
2:14 am
if your room vaccinated and wants to go to a bar, a restaurant, or theater. german business leaders want the government to give them the rights to impose the so called 3 g system. that means that anybody who is in vaccinated recovered or tested could be bod, from employment. some of germany's biggest companies of already brought in controversial canteen segregation. employees who, being double jobs, can sit together and eats as normal. those who have nots or choose not to reveal their vaccine. status must remain in a cordoned off area where masks have to be worn when not eating. chemical giant via told r t. they may even take this further depending on specific facility needs, a separate 2 g area is also created which offers immunized to employees a space with less distance to each other on a voluntary basis. this will be planned in close cooperation with work to represent
2:15 am
tapes and site management in the uncontrolled areas of the canteen. the distance root of 2 meters from each other continues to exist and individual sitting is offered. all the big names in the german business world say they're reviewing the situation. goods some company say this just isn't the way forward into contains as of today now distinction is made between and vaccinated and vaccinated are recovered and blaze. currently we're not consider in separate contin areas, which it every one equally with germany, posting record daily cove. it case numbers, politicians, business leaders, and health care professionals all agree that something has to be done and all bracing for things to potentially get worse. over the coming winter months. peter, all of a hearty berlin judges in canada, have rule that a comedian who mocked or disabled child singer did not preach the youngsters rights to dignity. a comic mike ward hale. the decision by the supreme court has part of
2:16 am
a growing backlash against cancelled culture. as both sides reacted to the ruling. i'm like, oh, j i one. this is a vest, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i would want to tell him about how i fell. when i 1st heard that they yelled as if 13 years old to chance. think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should guy, singer, jeremy gabriel, who was now 24, was born with a congenital disorder that causes scull abnormalities that we found fame in 2006 and even performed for pope benedict. but in 2010 committee and mike ward began making jokes about his disability under or gabriel was just 13 years old at the
2:17 am
time. or gabriel's family father, human rights complaint. but canada's highest courts at the singer was not ta good because of his disability, but rather because of his fame. all mister ward receive support from the comedy world. others still believed jokes like this. well, they should have consequences while we had a lively discussion here at our tea, the panel of guests you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister ward comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things, but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more
2:18 am
because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so, you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. got to charge in and find a guy, tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me and, you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before. but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak. that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from with is it was a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy,
2:19 am
he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if he wasn't addressing his disability. he was suicidal after that and you come be free to say whatever you want him be buying renting every way you want in the and you know, in your job i'm going to ship a nurse. if tomorrow i treat my disable, you know, employee like that. i would go to court to because doubt consequences for every one of us to what we do in our life. okay? it's not only speech is an action, no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that, a lot of comedians and, and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make
2:20 am
a joke like that. that's me. but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job or 20 pos down here at moscow just entering the halfway point of the weekly here, when r t still to come the u. s. military says it didn't break any laws and an old goose drones drive that killed 10 civilians and 70 kids and cobble the story and the rest of your weekly mix in just a moment. i ah ah
2:21 am
ah ah ah, ah, a ah ah, so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is on there in dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk
2:22 am
ah, it's going to join us for the sunday weekly here on our c. u. s. military has concluded that a botched drones strike enough canister in august was not on moore fallen showed no sign of negligence. that despite the strike killing a 10 civilians including 7 kids and no terrorists, or the u. s. r force inspector general announced the probes findings. the investigation did found no violation of law including the law of war. did find execution errors confirmed by confir may or combined with confirmation bias and communication break, the breakdowns that regrettably lead to civilian casualties. the couple drone attack was one of the final acts of the us war in afghanistan. the pentagon at 1st claimed it had taken out an imminent threaten didn't appear to involve any civilian casualties. blue. busy busy
2:23 am
ah the u. s. air force inspector general said his report on the strike will remain classified because it contains details about the military's as strike tactics. however, the associated press report at the pentagon found no mistakes after an independent review. at review also recommended the military improve his procedures to ensure civilians are not present before launching a strike. we discussed the issue with a former us marine corps or intelligence officer, scott ritter. he believed there was no justification for that drone strike in such a heavily populated city. there is nothing but negligence here from the beginning when they identified or miss identified the target to the end,
2:24 am
when the decision was made to pull the trigger. i can't see a single legitimate reason to go forward. and yet everybody did go forward. and if they're not being honest about it and saying that mistakes are made, this is going to happen again. this isn't the 1st time we fired a missile that's killed civilians. it isn't the 2nd time, 3rd time for time. it's the hundreds time. and the, the reality is the united states as known for some time now that the procedures it has in place, it carry out counter terrorism strikes in a real world, you know, real time an event or are not sufficient to the task that we kill civilians. and yet we went for it anyways of because there was political pressure being placed on the military to be seen as doing something. kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the horrific mode of a woman, allegedly, by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stopped and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012. a family believes that details of the case were hushed
2:25 am
up. lead you the added journey. we recently learned that is the british army involved because there were a lot of cover ups, but we are glad that now think i've been brought to light my wishes, the culprit to face law because i had to bear burden that wasn't mine. i had my own children to take care of, though i was not employed. it has been a real struggle. the family of agnes when terror, when jacko. a canyon woman, allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death, when jack, who was a 21 year old sex walker, any money to feed her newborn baby when she was reported missing in march of 2012. 2 months later, her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed, though it's been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier acts confessed to killing her. i feel so sad as those in positions to help us that took so long. recently,
2:26 am
when the me des started error in the story top and old. once it's like agnes has just died. it has it been affected, her daughter, but we had to let her know what is going on. i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case. well, when i think of darkness, i remember how happy she was. she loved to sing, she taught my youngest daughter how to sing. the person who killed agnes should face the law because the child was orphaned has suffered a lot. bearing in mind, she was just 5 months old. even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k, defense ministry, it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming when activists in kenya, a calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable. while the labor party here in the united kingdom say the 9 year ordeal without an
2:27 am
investigation, even being const, it has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the sold is involved or no inquiring to why the minister, the phones failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of when jacka continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about, had dazzled social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them that answers they so desperately need. her i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us defense for her young child. it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into am jacko's death
