the ah, israel becomes the 1st concrete plays in order to all foreign nationals due to a new cobit strain. the on the corner variance is already spreading globally with a trailer and italy among the latest to detect the cases. also i had the, my son is down there in the mine as his mother. i feel bad. he is alive. among the stories that think the week seems all the hot break has families more in the last 51.5 period coal mine is close and several managers unofficial, have been arrested over 30 days to off and to protest the killed and over a 1000 injured by the french military and decide according to local storage, often on the convoy on the way to molly was confronted by rises.
ah, this is the week he thought he had been robbing headlines over the past 7 days. a very welcomes 12 program while seeing that obviously a lot of people are talking about is role is closing its borders to all foreign nationals for 2 weeks as global panic spread. so for new covert variant, dozens of countries have halted flights from southern africa, where the con strain was fast detected. meanwhile, backend johanna bug, the restrictions have lashed past and just scrambling to get out. for many of them, it's already too late. the last pains to europe and north america have already departed ahead of travel deadlines imposed by governments of flights to major connection hub such as dough, hard to buy and singapore have all been suspended wirelessly. i spoke with
travelers at south africa, the biggest port did because nothing, nothing i can do coming as a whole, not getting anything that the pain and i don't know when when i can, i can fly this way. we've checked on the front and the flight wasn't consult. i think you can. you hear? i'm the, i'm tentative. why? the way they do everything. so when you buy a new ticket so they've chaos anxiety and confusion. following the discovery of a new coven variant called emmy crohn, at his turn, the world upside down. people rushing to the a port in a pace for the attempt to get on any remaining flight. and in fact, the queue of people are lining up in front of a close the ticket sales counter. they're hoping it will open and they might be a few things that they can still get on menu button. because the united kingdom was the 1st to read list 6 southern african countries and insist that any travellers
coming from them would have to go into calling team for 10 days at a government affinity. since then, the united states, canada, and the european union and other major destinations have followed prices for flights and rapid pcl, tast sky rocketing kim cur, who is the founder and lead volunteer of community circle home south africa ads for the last year. been hoping, traveling in an south africa, navigate the regulation. she's been inundated with calls apart from people running out of money. yeah. funds that they had that they had thought that was going to cost them to be here. medical aids usually only cover you for a certain amount of time abroad. travel, medical cover only covers you a certain amount of time that's going to run out. people have to get back to jobs. schools are gonna open soon, and the people trying to get their children home. the sense of loss is going to be felt because people are feeling like they are really craft. and they're becoming
more and more frustrated and see more and more tis what i'm hoping that governments can put measures in place that not just citizens, but family of citizens. if you can show just show proof of some ty to that country, that those people will be allowed entry. even if it means extra p c r testing. or it means a little bit of quarantine with retesting in that country. but people have to understand that these are human beings. these are people who have got a need to travel, not a one. it is not clear where the con, very 1st emerged. scientists from south africa were the 1st to alert the world health organization. the south african government has criticized international community for rushing to ban travel before the variant is properly assessed and is concerned about the damage, the bad will to both travel and business. for now, the fate of people stranded at this april is unclear as well struggled to deal with
the new 300 south africa. with so many questions. mounting around the new on the crowd and ferry and we spoke to helen reese from one of the largest research and stoops in south africa just to find out about her 1st hand experience when it comes to the strain. the concern about this variant is that it has a large number of mutations many more than we've seen before. some of these mutations we've already seen on other variance, and we know that they can be associated with increased trance, this ability and possibly increase what we call them. you an escape. what that means is that they're more resistant to the protection that you get from vaccines. we've also seen that mostly initially in young people, that's probably because young people are like they are all around the world getting fed up with all of the restrictions that and what they are describing of the same sort of symptoms that we've seen with other covered infections so fever, headache,
muscle, lakes, fatigue, cough and i haven't yet heard anyone talk about the lack of smell and taste with this variance. we also have noted, and this is the true if you see the reports that we're getting from other countries as well, where they're also now identifying cases that people have been vaccinated in some cases fully vaccinated. so what we don't know is whether, what this variant is, is managing to do is to overcome vaccination completely. the antibodies that you get from vaccines completely, probably not. we're still hopeful that the vaccines will protect against severe disease. and with the other variance that have emerged we've, although we've seen a reduced or reduced response to, to the vaccines. we have still seen protection against severe disease and death.
we've also spoken to the head of the russian direct investment fund, which is overseeing the global distribution of the sputnik v vaccine. and he says that a range of different jobs is key to fighting a pandemic and new strains. i think it's very important to investigate because in your very out a, so far as quick as shown to be incredibly effective against all of the different mutations. and we will share some good data, hopefully a little bit later on a greater efficacy against delta, very and so. so new rental force has to be started. and we need to see how efficient as exists and lic seen side games in your area. but also we can really quickly about like seeing when you variant, if needed. and we believe that different countries have worked, folio different like seats. we see as a monopoly off. and we're in a vacuum in europe failed to protect europe. so it shouldn't be about em. are they monopoly? it should be about portfolios of different extent acknowledges including the
russian vaccines, chinese vaccines, other vaccines from britain astrazeneca, very good and all this report folio different vaccines. can countries themselves a thing with higher fed check president mueller salmon, who recently tested positive for corona virus, for if we're in the kind of see the new prime minister behind a loft green on sunday of them and had previously spent 6 weeks, a hospital friend on related illness, he, i'm kill to fiala will lead a block of 5, a center. i'm center right. opposition. parties that came to power back in october, a renewed pandemic, clumped down across much of western europe. how sparked widespread street unrest on classes with police? however, the european union is distancing itself from the top security response thing that's purely a matter for national governments. ah hm.
with that, since the european commission was not present at the scene of the riots, honest, not a police organization, it is not in the best position to comment on the actions of the police of the you states. the maintenance of public order is strictly within the scope of the national forties of the you states and is supervised by the national courts. and the european commission is not in the best position to make specific comments of this month. have an anti lockdown protest in the entire city of rotterdam. 50 want a restaurant, aid and 3 people hospitalized off to police fight warning shots. similar scenes to in the hague was 7 arrests were made. and over in austria, demonstrators were met with a heavy handed police response off the announcement of mandatory coven shots that have also been large scale marches across both france and belgium. and while the
e u is refusing to condemn tough crowd control tactics in its own member states, when it comes to thought no other countries takes very different view. the detention of over a 1000 demonstrators and violence used against them by the russian authorities across the country to day threatened the fundamental freedoms of expression association and assembly in the russian federation parish to the people in hong kong. the support of will be a new new toys now autonomy, how fundamental freedom we will continue to stand by the people are hung below. russians have 30 to the streets. we smash protests and to ours, the violence against this peaceful protest us was shirking and unacceptable which undone this brutality and spect. oh, full in transparent investigation,
yet or is patricia. i would like to reiterate the right of the cuban people to express their opinions in a peaceful manner. and i want to ask the government to allow these peaceful demonstrations and to listen to the discontent of the protest hers. but he foreman newspaper at italian with a think the brothel views on human rights are riddled with contradictions. europe to european union don't have been commissioned all the land. they think we think somehow all europeans that we are gods gifted that we know what is good for the people in the world. we think that on human rights, our position is always the right one. so sanctioned people we sanctioned be a mar if you're just done an african conversation countries, china and russia. of course the arch villain. that is a double standard because i was astonished as eager pin citizen to see that in the netherlands. one of the most democracy are countries in western europe. the police had to shoot with real bullets in the crowd. the press was very silent about this.
it was in the press, but they did not insist while to me, it's something incredible. it's the 1st time since the last world war that we have to police in west of your shooting directly and people walk. there were some problems just after the war, but, but not that much. so ok, they had good reasons that were black blocks, you know, extremists were there in the groups demonstrating but still in western europe, shooting with real bullets and the crowd. and then we have lessons to give to other countries. great. that there is a problem that obviously mrs. funder lang should say, something, even if it's not aimed at the dutch government for rotterdam, it should be aimed at old government's asking for restraint. that's a minimum that she should say. c such teams are watching to recover bodies from a siberian coal mine where an explosion on thursday led to the death of 51. people,
including 5 rescuers. emergency crews have to stop what several times due to high me thing. concentrations and fears of the blasts will the bodies of 5 minus have been found out various stages since saturday afternoon, 300 metres underground. that had been a moment of genuine hope. when a rescue had been presumed, dead managed to get out, his survival was described as a miracle. he's now in a stable condition hospital and described what happened. i feel better now that i'm get an older necessary treatment inside the mine i was lucky to find a place where the fresh air was flowing in. so that gave me time to lie down and get my strength back. i had all the life saving groupons with me. later i stood up and got out following the stream of fresh air. and finally my the local rescuers team for which i'm thankful. now efforts to stabilize the mine of the going around the clock in nitrogen has been used to clear out the dangerous method that is built
up inside the mind and poses a risk of explosion. now at this point, there are literally no chances that anybody has survived was trapped inside. however, the destroyed family members are still hoping that there could be some miracle and that their loved ones could still be alive. yeah, got my yes, my son is down there in the mine. as his mother, i felt that he is alive without some hope. when one man was found alive, he see if that man spent a day down there and survived. it means it's possible to survive. but we are tall, people die in 2 or 3 hours due to lack of air minus her aunt at their bramble. they are already counted his dad just like that. matt has survived. now it's hard breaking to watch those scenes. there are still many family members who haven't lost hope, and their hope was only bolstered by the miraculous recovery of a rescue worker who was presumed dead on friday. having spent almost an entire day trapped inside the mind, the 51 year old alexander's the govern,
ashan somehow managed to get out of that mine. his condition right now is stable, although critical, but it's expected that he will make a full recovery and make it back to his wife and son. but unfortunately, the same can't be said for the others who are trapped inside the mind. 51 people ultimately died and people are now wondering how this happened and what led up to this. a criminal investigation has been launched, and 5 people have been detained and arrested. the director of the coal mine, his deputy, and a person in charge of this exact mine have all been detained and also 2 safety inspectors who are accused of faking a safety inspection just a week before this tragic explosion. now all these people have denied their guilt, but nevertheless they have been arrested for 2 months, pending further investigation. but one thing that has become clear is that this mind has been plagued by safety issues. apparently, most of the miners knew about these issues and the reported them to the higher ups from a longer of go home. i remember my brother in law telling me about
a methane program in the mine, the even that's resorts to various methods, to decrease the level indicators in order to get work done. he occasionally let his former head know about the situation. he wondered how he could work in such circumstances. the minds management was aware of what was going on. he thought my husband came home and every time he was saying these won't and well, all the sensors were beeping down there. he sat, that's the conditions our minus half to working at the moment. now, all of these reports will be taken into account by the investigation, which is trying to get the to the bottom of what happened, how it happened, what led up to it, what were the underlying causes? and ultimately, how to prevent such things from happening again. but while that investigation goes on and rescue services continue working on securing the mind and recovering the bodies. relatives are still distraught and demanding more answers. dmitri power r t camera. well, among this survivors on thursdays explosion,
dozens are entered. a list of the names is on display at the entrance to the mine magic say that making a strong recovery and are all in a stable condition. now let's rewind a little and take a look back at how the tragedy unfolded over 50 dead out. they horrific mon explosion inside barrier. 8 30 am november the 25th. the mind with 285 people inside filled with smoke. after a methane explosion, a with 9 am november 25th accusation and rescue work starts. reports of 1st casualties authorities and now there is no contact with at least 37 people with 5 pm november the 25th rescue operation suspended amid fears if possible. explosion with over 30
mine is still missing. rescue say there's not much hope left because it's minus have only 4 hours of oxygen supply. 10 pm november, the 25th group of rescue workers fails to come up after the threat of explosion. latent 3 of them were found today. oh, no. i did with 3 15 pm, november the 26th. a presumed dead rescue work came out on his own raising hope among the desperate families of miners. it is not the 1st deadly accident in this mine with another me said explosion, claiming 13 lives in 2004. i 9 suddenly just just just realistic of what move on you up
with we got reaction from dissolved investigator arnold attacks. he explained some of the difficulties and challenges facing such criselda. it's not like on hollywood, you can't send emergency services in so day, so far with technology, even today's technology to get in there safely. the area has to be made so typically in a mining accident when something like this happens, vit. there is no simple solution. this is the, the worst nightmare of, of anybody who's involved with mining. they usually aren't other options when the ventilation systems being compromised, when you've had the explosions, when the systems are destroyed or severely damaged, at the options of very limited recovery operation in circumstances like this is
extremely dangerous. it's extremely dangerous because in the 1st instance, the fact that the disasters occurred, it all suggests that there's been a failure in the emergency and in fact, normal ventilation systems. and then there having been an explosion, it means that many of the safety systems are likely now to be in operable. and i suspect, certainly it's been, it's my experience, but that's the sort of difficulty. but these rescue as a now facing on the one hand. and there's the possibility that people may be trapped in areas with air which is still tenable. but on the other hand, the very real risk that rescuers themselves may be injured or worse in their attempts to find them. but still head on the program. a social media influence as fees, curious, backlash up to posting content about johnny as a migraine headache to europe. what about that story and much more
ah, to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy, even foundation, let it be an arms race group is on often very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk to roles, driven by dreamers shaped bank. concur some of those with
who dares sinks. we dare to ask a oh hello again. now to protesters have been held in close to 20, injured by the french army and nisha. that's according to local officials. it occurred after a military convoy on route to another african nation. molly was stopped by a large scale demonstration. the convoy of the french volcano, force, escorted by the national gent armory, was blocked by very violent protesters in sarah, in the talbert region, where it had spent the night in its attempt to break free use force,
leading to the death of 2 people and 18 wounded club we have it's from official accounts authorities in niger which say that after the french convoy had passed from burkina faso into niger about 30 kilometers in a huge crowd about a 1000 demonstrators and try to stop the convoy this this. busy french convoy fred chair. busy presence in the area has been unpopular with many people with some ethnicities. they believe all manner of stories about french troops and their relations with various rebel groups in the area. but they tried to stop this. convoy and french troops reportedly began firing what they describe as warning shots, as well as tier gas. it is unclear how wounding shots could have injured 18 people killed 2, but apparently french troops as well as an is jerry and troops began firing
a warning shots. again, as they say at these crowds details the still somewhat scarce. we expect to find out more, but the convoy has moved on off to this incident again, a very ill fated convoy because it landed in the ivory coast to support the french operation in the area it is seen snaked its way up towards the north, towards molly and on the way it has said capital matter of incidents and book and facile level, multiple attempts, but by crowds in the thousands to stop these convoy voskus void made up of more than a 1000 vehicles. and then also they had the. busy flood warning shots as well as tier gas in an effort to disperse the crowds. also birth people injured. as we've heard. busy but again, this convoy is now on its way through niger, intimately where french bases and french troops, station,
thousands of them. in this decade long flight, the bronze was waved against terrorists. it cooled them as well as religious extremists in the region. when we reached out to the french defense ministry for comment, the reply we received was that in jerry and police on french officers happen to 5 warning shots after being subjected to a violent attack and stone throwing. they added that 7 french soldiers on employees were injured as a result of the assault. one of the story and instagram, influenced from a tune as young has been slammed off to posting about her reported secret crossing to its the, on a boat with migrants. well, this right here is the video in question. according to italian reports, the social media creator arrived on the island of lamb, producer. she came severe social conditions in tune as they are forced to seek asylum in the mediterranean nation, adding that the experience of the boat trip was terrible, but the voyage has still sparked outrage online during
a clandestine crossing on an irregular boat, a to museum influence publishes instagram stories in photos, joyful and smiling. i leave the comments to you. we cannot allow easily its laws in its borders to be marked in this way. a politician from it is beneath paul to whom we spoke to also have some strong was criticism for the blogger. jemaya love it. it's a real shame on people arriving in italy who do not need to come people who are not hungry coming. they're coming to us to italy because they want a better life, but in fact, they're not bad off economically, like this. unity and blogger, those who are really poor, remained in africa and dying of hunger. it is in africa and that we should try to help them and not via these n jose and via what amounts to illegal immigration. europe must help us to stop please landings. they arrive in sicily too many migrants arrive in europe,
is not helping us. a big show is made out of these crossings. in addition, in italy, there are many people who think they are being good and say they want to welcome mike or and, but in reality, they do not realize how many difficulties there are for italians. and for us to syrians who are experiencing a really difficult period with me as one of a number of european nations experiencing a such an asylum claims. recently relations teen luncheon powers, for example, fall off the front president accused boris johnson failing to offer a solution to the cross channel crisis and the better of poland border remains tense to prompting. in fact, the battery needed to visit one of the migrant centers, the mayor of lamb producer believes that europe must rethink how it tackles the problem. so, so, so closely, the solution is easy. europe cannot delegate the task of welcoming migraines to certain states. europe must assume as responsibilities more should be done, but the question is, what does you not want to tackle the issue of migration?
there is no strategy to keep migrant away. it doesn't exist because migrants would bypass the obstacle and was still come to italy, even pussy, it was to control borders would be useless. their laws and documents that should be respected and that europe itself does not respect. there is no end to all this. the situation is always the same, nothing has changed. here in lamp induced, there are no places to welcome every one. we have more than 300 and aged children who do not know where to send our reception, sensory suffering. there are too many people. the politicians are not thinking about it right now. we are collapsing, we can't go on like this from the you. we have received only indifference and from the italian government also indifference. well that is a rapt mom of his to day for this hour rumba. are tito come, has plenty more stories waiting for you just a quick way to check it out. ah, well, the panoramic notion no borders and his light keys and
you finish as emerge, we don't have a therapy, we don't have a vaccine. whole world leads to to be ready people are judgment. 2 common crisis with them, we can do better, we should be doing better. every one is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is grateful to response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with the postal service delivers $155000000000.00 pieces of mail every year. approximately
40 percent of the world's mail right now the us postal service is in the fight of its life history. and that is reduction bad financial shape. now facing default, the postal service is a cash cow, and there was a way to pull money out of the postal service to put into a federal budget. there was a mandate that you bring in a $100000.00, new revenue every month. the nature of privatization in the us postal service is very much hidden from public view. it's privatization from the inside out. why that's a big business in money. it's not about the public and given them a service that the design is not about quality trade workers. it's about the mind i.
