rti charlotte dupe and ski can tell us more to 6 30 am local time. this x hack was carried out, we understand the police officer was in a vehicle just outside his police station and the attacker opened the door of the car and then attempted to stab the officer to death. now we understand that the officer survived without any injuries or thanks to his bullet proof vests, but we do understand from sources on the ground that while that attack was attempted, the aggressor shouted that this was being done in the name of the muslim prophet. now we understand that a colleague of that police officer who is attacked aimed fire straight away at the attack, it severely injuring them and they are now are said to be severely injured and being treated for that. are we understand that the attacker is a 37 year old, are with the original nationality of being algerian. and he said to have been
6:03 am
unknown to the police before this incident. but because of the fact that the aggressor said that this attack was in the name of them was in prophet mohammed, this is now being treated as a possible terror incident here in france. now this is not the 1st time we have seen an attack of this nature here in france just in april this year. so not too many months ago, a police officer administrative worker was stabbed to death just inside the secure area of a police station, new hun, booley, at which is not too far from paris. and then in may. so less than a month later, there was another attempt on the life of a police officer at this time, at leaving that opposite severely wounded. that took place in the city of north in western france. so we do get these attacks from time to time and back in 2019 in the october and a radicalized i. t employee of the police station in paris,
6:04 am
a killed 3 police officers and an administrative. okay, what was a terror attack back then? one of the worst attacks in sight, a police station where that took place now for mocking the pain from the natural rally who funks. she seems to be saddened that these attacks are becoming what she described as being normalized. i get the impression that these kinds of crimes are becoming usual as if it's some form of habit. i urge the french people not to get used to this situation. now france has been suffering from a wave of violence in the last decade and attacks like this shop and the idea of people fearing that they could be further islamic attacks like the ones we saw back in 2015. but for the moment, this appears to be a loan will for tack. it is being treated as a possible terrorist incident. 37 year old man said to be of an algerian origin is not being treated for severe injuries after attempting to stab a police officer in can on monday morning to another brit headline

stories today. the biden administration's push for a monday treat cove at vaccinations has exposed a sharp divide in the us over the weekend on appeals court temporarily blocked the government's job requirement for businesses. but that didn't stop people taking to the st. ah, ah, that will be contested. monday would apply to all american businesses with at least $100.00 employees. vaccines are already obligatory for public officials. it comes at a time of high infection rates, averaging out $73000.00 per day, despite
6:06 am
a federal appeals court blocking the private sector requirement. the surgeon general insists the measures are needed, the present and the administration wouldn't have put these requirements in place if they didn't think that they were appropriate and necessary. and the administration is certainly prepared to defend them for all those promises of healing. biden's america has become a tinderbox, rife with anger and division. and the latest vaccine mandate was just the thing to spark the fire. this mandate is unconstitutional, unlawful and unwise. the biden vaccine monday is a shocking invasion of medical privacy and individual liberty. and we will not stand for it. i'm exploring every legal option to defend the rights of north caroline and against this unconstitutional mandate with president by to plan to mandate box to nation in the u. s. companies with over 100 employees. more than 2 dozen states have now come out swinging,
6:07 am
determined to protect the rights of 84000000 workers. but one of extraordinary, what's up, barry didn't read was the blue state, new hampshire. and among the attorney generals who fall the no food was a democrat from iowa, this was no longer from protest on the street. this is no longer about loyalty to one's party. this was the country, the big guns from both sides of the aisle coming out proclaiming we the people say, no, a court has now frozen the mandate nationwide. that's concerned, it's an overreach. what about individual liberty? what about the constitution? what's about a president's promise? no, i don't think it should be mandatory. i wouldn't demand to be mandatory, but i would do everything in my power just like i don't think mask have to be made mandatory nationwide and do everything in my power as president stage to encourage people to do the right thing. turns out that the man who didn't believe in mandates has turned into
6:08 am
a big fond of them fast for federal employees and now for private ones. heads, mosque up, get job done. you might be out of a job. now you think that being food by more than half the country states would dump in your spirits, but know the white house is still feeling good, safe, just to get ministration over this requirement for workers companies. i'd like to get your response to that and also how confident on you can what's and so we are very confident that it can. now, biden in fis, he's acting according to international medical guidance. the vaccine is the only way out of the pandemic. a view shed by many, but the timing is bad. discussions of to job will not have reached fever pitch. mm hm.
6:09 am
from california to mississippi. angry citizens have flaunted the streets something they'll never vote democrat again, others, but they'd rather be unemployed and give out that freedoms. then you look at the recent elections, a litmus passed of the bite and presidency. the democrats took a beating and what many say is a bad omen for the midterms next year? it's been a bumpy few months and for some that's just one person to play. nobody likes to seem to be franklin d. roosevelt. deluxe is him to be normal and sub the kaos, you know, under his administration, the cdc said that anybody who's vaccinated shouldn't wear a mask, and then they did the hokey pokey and said no, no, you do up to where mass they have said that boosters were not necessarily going to be thing and mandates, not going necessarily going to be a thing. and now we have both boosters and mandate. so if he goes back on this,
6:10 am
it will, i think, a road, some of the confidence that biden came in with, remember, he was partly elected because he was the adult in the room. he was somebody for whom was a political veteran that would not see a new problem and therefore would be able to handle it better than the bull in the china shop that donald trump was. if he doesn't show com, even handed leadership on this, and i don't think he particularly has on this or many other things. then he's going to continue to see his approval rating a road like it is right now when it's underwater by nearly 10 points. the white house at odds with the states, the republicans taking on the democrats, the democrats timing on cobra, and the facts surrounding on the and faxed, like i said, for all those promises of healing and looks like it's a long johnny to the united states, living up to its name saskia taylor. so there is still plenty of disagreement over covert shots or reminder the world health organization maintains the vaccinations
6:11 am
are natural immunity. are the primary tools in fighting cobra them? well, vaccine pressure has taken a toll on president biden's approval rating to know down to 37 percent with 60 percent disapproving. and there is another clyde hanging over the administration, the ongoing detention of those involved in january storming of congress. one capital held detainee has spoken against the conditions in washington dc jail. comparing it to the infamous guantanamo prison, he wrote a letter to an investigative journalist who spoke to r t for the 1st $120.00 days, and d. c. 's get mo. jan. 6 is experienced daily locked downs for 23 to 24 hours before being allowed to leave our small $120.00 square foot. so the extreme medical neglect and this facility has caused a variety of adverse illnesses and disease, some show signs of scurvy, and some even have covered like symptoms,
6:12 am
but medical personnel. i refused to treat it. and on at least 5 occasions, raw sewage has overflowed our unit, causing human fecal matter to flood the flaws and rooms you sent it directly to me, i have been keeping in touch with many of the prisoners that are in washington dc. right now, many political prisoners in the united states, and i keep in touch with them. they tell me their stories. and he wrote me a letter that i could release it to the public so they would see what was going on right now in that prison. i know that the january 6 prisoners are being treated worse than most prisoners. that's what i'm hearing from them, that they don't have the same rights as all the prisoners in the jail, and that they're not be given any access to adequate medical care. they're not allowed to have visitors. correspondence with their attorneys, not lawyers are being monitored and they're just being put in solitary confinement, often with no accountability whatsoever. and what's so different about the january 6 prisoners is they haven't been convicted of a crime. so these not are being punished for crimes that they would never connected
6:13 am
out yet. and some of them don't have trials. they even set to possibly 2002003 for some very small crimes. so they're going to be a waiting, waiting trial in detention for many years before they actually see their day in court. that's what's different about these prisoners. the regular prisoners or mr. de grave has been charged on numerous kinds, including civil disorder and acts of violence. he said he enter the capital building to make a documentary he was arrested on january 28th, but no more than 10 months on no trial date has been said. a recap on january 6, this year, a several 100 from supporters. storm the capital building in washington, many of them were angry about the result of the 2020 election which they claim was supplied. the chaos lead to 5 debts, including a female ur force veteran whose show almost $700.00 people had so far been charged in connection with the keel. logan a 100 are still being held in the u. s. marshal service,
6:14 am
paid a surprise visit to the prison after defendants complained of per conditions that resulted in $400.00 in midst being transferred, although none of them were january 6 detainees. correct customer, nova again said the defendants aren't being treated for any i think they should check other prisons. very alarming that that washington dc jail is, is treating american citizens the way that they are. are the bad. the terrible thing is they're removing 400 prisoners because they're, they've been made it that washington dc is not treating citizens properly, but they are not removing any of the january defending they're, they're saying they're removing other people. but the january, the fine and have to say they're in nice condition that it can happen to these people that can happen to anybody in america. and this is a very dangerous time that we have to stand by our fellow citizens and demand that they have their constitutional rights to a fair trial with speedy trial,
6:15 am
to be able to be bailed out of jail. we've sent a request to the u. s. marshal service on the washington d. l itself for comment on their decision not to move the january 6. defendants will bring you any response of we get them so ahead this our us talking about troops are filing out of her rock against the backdrop of deadly rides. under the ledge, the suffering nation intent on the minister will be looking at similarities with up chemist. on a little later, a large group of migrant says just cross from bella ruth, into poland. best. according to the bellow, russian border service, most of them are believed to be from the middle east. to get more in this across life, to our europe correspondence, peter, all over. at peter, we have seen instance like this in recent weeks,
6:16 am
but it does appear that this incident shows that the board of crisis is deepening. hello. ok, we thought that was hard to lay there in the line, but peter obviously can't hear us at the moment. peter oliver, your correspond we will try certainly for to be really need for the polish border authority says suggests that there's no let up in people trying to cross that border from bella roof into poland and they're on into the european union. oh okay. yeah. just a little bit of an issue there are peters line, we will try to reconnect with them on a better one, just to hear what is happening on the bell russian polish border. but it does seem
6:17 am
to be at big developments with a lot of migrants crossing over in to poland. we'll get back with peter very shortly. ok, another story to bring you today. the scottish ballet stirred controversy by altering key elements from it show the nutcracker, which has been running for half a century. it's in response to claims of racial stereotypes in the production chinese and are a big sequences. art contributor laura chin picks up the story. seeing as how the nutcracker is a holiday favorite in many countries, most of us are likely familiar with its stories and similarly likely confused by how anybody could possibly consider it racist. ah, well, it turns out that the racism in the ballet actually refers to 2 very specific dances
6:18 am
that take part in the 2nd act. you see, while kara and the prince are in the land of sweets, they witness different dances that are each meant to represent a different desert delicacy from around the world. there is a russian dance that is meant to represent candy canes, a spanish dance that is meant to represent chocolate and apparently problematically . the ballet also features an arabian dance for coffee and a chinese dance to represent t. now, many different choreography is for the nutcracker exists, and every single production of the ballet does feature different direction and different costumes for the dancers. but the common theme is that for all of these different dances, spanish, chinese, arabian, and russian, the audience is supposed to get a sense of each country's unique, aesthetic. and this is surprising to you. keep in mind that this is the same ballet company who last year also said that quote, we have examined the 50 year history, which we are aware includes outdated and racist autistic content. now this demon and the actions taken by the scottish ballet are confusing for many reasons. first
6:19 am
off, in what way is it races to portray a cultures? most recognizable attributes. it is true that stereotypes can sometimes be racist, but if a stereotype is merely an accurate portrayal of a country's customs, why is it automatically racist? what's also a very strange choice by this ballet company is to cast both males and females in the role of draw. so mire, why the need to introduce a gender bent? draw so meyer. what does that add to the story? the answer to those questions remain to be seen. but what is certain is that in 2021, not even ballet is safe from the p. c. police. and there is another story involving walk this sunday quality emanating from scotland after the break will bring you parents reactions after their songs were asked to come to school and worst earned. ah,
6:20 am
what else seemed wrong? when all things just don't hold any, you have to shape out. this thing becomes the after kid and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves will the parts we choose to look for common ground? oh, driven by dream shaped banks concur. some of those with dares sinks we dare to ask
6:21 am
oh oh you're back with our t international that's returned to that story. we had an issue with the connecting a little while ago. that is about the large group of migrants which has just cross, we believe from belarus in to poland. let's say speak to a year apart from peter all over, all met peter. quite a problem building here. it appears. well, yes indeed. this footage that we're seeing has been put out by the polish border authorities. it clearly shows a large group of people crossing the border from bella roof into poland. that
6:22 am
frontier, of course, between bella ruth and the european union. what we've, we've seen is a large number of people this time crossing, but it's a continuation of the numbers that have been making this, this route their way into the european union. in fact, poland has taken the step of deploying around $12000.00 troops to their border in order to try and stop people making this trip. but who are the people who are coming across the border this way? well, the, the vast majority, when we've looked at who's, who's made it across the border and they've been checked in with 8 organizations. and they've made, in some cases, asylum applications in poland. they've come from the middle east. many of them had taken flights from baghdad among other places, to, to minsk and then tried to cross over. now, what we had seen is a, the european union puts in place say, a deal with iraq to stop flight from baghdad to men's cuts in agreement until the
6:23 am
end of the year. poland bow has said that they've gone to announce a 3 month where they're going to continue a 3 month state of emergency to deal with the the numbers of people who've tried to make this crossing, which despite it being an overland crossing is particularly perilous as well. temperatures at this time of year, incredibly low. you walking through these people are walking through forests without really the equipment in order to be doing so in the conditions that they all. so although this isn't the type of dangers that's faced by those trying to cross by boat across the g and towards the greek islands, there's still a lot of danger that comes with making this type of this type of journey in the the european union has put the blame thoroughly on bello roofs for this current situation, they say that minced is actively trying to, to, to use migrant essentially as a retaliation for sanctions. the european union has placed on beller roofs,
6:24 am
now minced, denies both claims whole heartedly. however, that doesn't get away from the fact that there is an issue. there is an ongoing situation that we have in europe with thousands of people trying to make, as they said, a powerless crossing through the forests of eastern europe into poland, from bellies. yeah, astonishing. furnish there, peter, as you're speaking of people going through the forest, as you say on and motor with large, large groups of people. thanks for taking us through all that europe correspond. peter oliver, iraq's prime minister claims he knows who tried to kill him on his pledge to expose the culprits. on sunday, several drones bombed the premier residents in bagdad security is being ramped up with helicopters flying over the capital army vehicles deployed on the streets. extra forces have also been sent to the green zone, where the prime minister's residence is located. we can show you some of the damage
6:25 am
left by the drone bombing here, which came at days after deadly rights against the parliamentary election results, widely denounced as rig 7. security guards were wounded in the drone. incidents with the interior ministry, calling it a terrorist attack. wherever the opposition is suggesting, it may have been a proper cation by the government to justify a correct on the united states was the 1st country to condemn the alleged attempt on the pm's life. at the time when the remaining american combat forces are leaving iraq, our teeth eager that done a flip. now the parallels between the iraq and afghanistan campaigns. there's riots . there's tear gas, there's life gunfire. iraq continues its descent into security chaos. following the latest parliamentary vote. ah,
6:26 am
iraq's intelligence headquarters is shelled. it's pro american prime minister is targeted by a grown assassination attempt. this is what's left over his home in the most secure haven of baghdad. the attempt that got washington very anxious. we are following the reports of drone attack. this apparent act of terrorism, which was strongly condemn, was directed at the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable, the another se cents with the government and people for rock. all this just over a month since america started to withdraw its combat forces from the country and the pull out has already evoked some morbid flashbacks in the white house. to this day, the withdrawal from afghanistan is tanking jo biden's political school. yet the president found no better time to embark on a similar mission just in iraq. i think things are going well or role in iraq is
6:27 am
just to be available to continue to train to assist to help them to deal with isis road. but we are not going to be brought in here. and america's relationship with iraq has been eerily similar to the one with of gaston security forces, fully equipped and trained by american specialists, pro washington leadership, a whole generation of locals who don't remember their lives without us forces in the country forces that invaded under the pretext of hunting down the bad guys. all these statements apply perfectly to both of gaston and iraq countries turned by the us into test sites for its nation's building ambitions. our mission in iraq is clear, were hunting down the terrace. we're helping iraqis build a free nation. that is an ally in the war on terror. we know that true peace will
6:28 am
only be achieved when we give the afghan people the means to achieve their own aspirations. piece piece will be achieved by helping afghanistan develop its own stable government. osama bin laden escaped american bounty hunters by adding to pakistan. the infamous anthro exclaims, and saddam hussein's links to the $911.00 attacks turned out to be fake news. the u . s. military found itself bog down, and nations in tatters to decades on as it prepares to pull out statements of reassurance come out of washington. the very same old song had during the african withdrawal iraq essential to the u. s. vision. first able me to least iraq is not again stand where here for the long term with you, iraq is a key strategic partner and we're committed to this partnership world cobbled. so
6:29 am
come to the taliban in a matter of days. no, not a single us intelligence agency. saw that coming or that doesn't provide much backing to the claims that the true pull out from iraq this time will end up just fine. i cell is already taking advantage of the strain security capability of the taliban rule in afghanistan. iraq is isis cradle. nobody wants to see another nation in the region crumble under the weights of a decades long string of 4 choices. make thousands of miles away. others are global news update. for now, i'll keep you abreast of all the latest developments in 30 after another great program beginning moment. ah ah
6:30 am
ah, ah, ah ah, ah. hello and welcome to crosstalk. were all things considered i'm funeral about? well, it's official. the u. s. military has declared the great 3 powers competition featuring the u. s. russia and china. how does neal liberal ideology play into this? and what does russia gate in january 6? i'm in common. ah, to discuss these issues and.
