2:06 pm
health there is saying it's because of this new variant and uncertainty over how it may affect people. we're trying to get that balance in proportion and, and it is difficult because it's unknown. so we need to buy some time so our scientists can work with the world's leading scientists to just basically sort of figure out what they're in. we know it's very transmissible by looking at that the year. but we don't know, you know, whether it work with the vaccine vaccine, whack or the other treatments, etc. so the scientists do need some time for that. well, that's how it looks across europe right now would be keeping a keen eye to see on what news develops either with from the netherlands, with regards to the announcement that this omicron varied may have been present here for much longer. also watching what's going to come out from here in berlin, where anglo merkel, the german chancellor meeting with regional leaders as they try to establish a new national protocol for it. when it comes to trying to tackle these covert outbreak or to expand. or peter was saying their nations are now applying their own new measures to tackle the spread of the virus australia and some european

countries of suspended flight to him from south africa and neighboring states. while others have banned everybody except their own nationals arriving from southern africa. however, israel and japan have gone a step further. they've imposed a complete ban. the japanese prime minister says it's crucial to avoid a worst case scenario while studies continue into the new strain. and it seems that he's got the people's backing at home. still to see you now come off. i am from a rural area and i am very worried only my wife is also very worried. wondering what tokyo residents are thinking about the new variant does for the you know, so i feel relieved now that prime minister kasheila announced very strict border measures. it had to fill it up with i think it was good that is sheila to the water measures very swiftly and on top of that, i wanted to prepare well for things like hospital beds and similar issues. i'm scared because oil people like us are a bit too relaxed now. to criminals is for sure. it's better not to allow people who might be infected to enter japan,
2:08 pm
because the situation in japan is pretty stable. now. it's initial feeling or right now, scientists are brushing to adapt existing vaccines to fight the d strain which has yet to be fully studied. and the pressure is on as well as the world health organization says on the chrome potentially poses a very high risk globally. a w h o representative here in russia says progress is being made in understanding the strain, but the still more work to be done. when a mutation shows a number of i would say changes a number of rotations that we can relate to something either to previous knowledge . for example, the buyer. this variant has mutations many more mutations on the spike protein. it is actually nice to meet all that the virus is using to getting to the salad to make us infected, to actually cool infections to spread further. and this is why, because it has many more than other y versus other variance. it has immediately
2:09 pm
come into concert. so i think i'm saying just acknowledge, but we don't have a logical noise. he keeps telling us at the moment that this is a more deadly virus. once we know from south africa is that many young people and this is where the cluster was detected. and we do know that called me, the young people is lighter. we do not have reports and he's no man that is causing more severe disease or that it is more lee. so this is not something that we should speculate off. we really need a bit more time. and this is why he said that there is no place for planning, but there is place for preparedness, proportion, and action was the new coach training courses alarm globally. vaccine supplies are in the spotlight. nursing union from 28 countries. want to get rid of patents for corona virus jobs so that they can be legally made by any qualified manufacturer or groups looking for you am backing to saying that poor countries lack the shots
2:10 pm
because they're big hoarded by the wealthy countries where that produced. it says the vaccine and balance could lead to even more deaf. the direct consequences of the failure to distribute vaccines and treatment equitably to the vast majority of people of low and moderate income countries could likely for the transmission of coven 19 further mast illness. and large numbers of fatalities in those countries, there should be reason enough to address the crisis of global vaccine apartheid. well, with all the crowns spreading, the united kingdom is back in the spotlight for its handling of the pandemic. this time is nurses unions, in 28 different countries are accusing. richard nations of essentially costing lives worldwide and even of creating a vaccine apartheid system. now essentially, what they're doing is taking their complaint directly to the united nations. basically, this is all about many rich countries, including the u. k and the e u. they're refusing to barge on rules,
2:11 pm
particularly regarding intellectual property rights for rich and nations. have secured 7000000000 doses of the vaccine in comparison to the low income nation's only having around 300000000 doses. now these nurses unions are really accusing rich nations of violating patients rights. instead of supporting this waiver, certain governments or protecting the prophets of big pharmaceutical companies at the expense of public health. these countries have violated our rights and the rights of our patients and cause the loss of countless lives of nurses, another caregivers, and those we have cared for. well, nurses unions in 20 different countries have now filed an appeal with the united nation, saying that the global gap between rich and poor is only just exacerbated with the pandemic and is now becoming blindly obvious. not only that, what may argue that the transmission of cov, it in developing nations increases the risks of new variance emerging. now,
2:12 pm
a waiver on all of these provisions for vaccines would then allow them to be made more widely and then distributed more widely as well. it would improved the global distribution of the vaccines. now, even the world health organization has weight in there to this debate, saying that there needs to be a cap on how much of a country is vaccinated. no more vaccines should go to countries that have already boxed unaided. more than 40 percent of the population until kovacs has the vaccines . it needs to help other countries get that to. well, the pandemic slogan has long been. no one is safe till everybody is safe. but really and truly it doesn't seem to be the case for many people arguing against the pharmaceutical companies that arguably operating profit before public health. and while there has been a global kovacs initiative, have these global initiatives really be in that successful, almost 2 years on now? from the beginning of the pandemic, and arguably,
2:13 pm
we're back in the eye of the storm. the feeling really is now that these rich countries are arguably having quite a selfish mindset and if they continue to do so well, we just go round and round in circles and go back to square one with these new variance emerging. that a map hooton's announce 3rd rush has developed a powerful new hypersonic weapons in response to a pentagon statement. escalating tensions with the credit is r t correspond to remind causative while answering questions from the participants of the russia calling economic of forum vladimir putin. a question nato's potential weapons placement in eastern europe and he warned of the consequences that may follow a russian president followed up by saying that the country will soon have mock 9 hypersonic weapons. and he did so in response to a, one of the questions about the so called red lines in ukraine and natal steps that
2:14 pm
led to the current tensions between moscow and the western military alliance. i if miss al sites appear on the territory of ukraine than the flight time of missiles to moscow will be 7 to 10 minutes. and the case of hypersonic weapons 5 minutes. imagine that. and what else can we do? we will be forced to create similar sites as a reaction to those who threaten us in this way. and we can do it now because we have successfully tested a hypersonic missile. and at the beginning of the year, we will already have new c based missiles in service, which can travel at speeds to mach 9. the flight time for these missiles will also be 5 minutes. why are we doing all this? creating such threats for us is the red line, but i hope it doesn't come to that. i hope that common sense and the joint responsibility for all countries and for the well community will prevail go water. the so called a russian aggression seems to be dominating the hearts and minds of western politicians and subsequently the people as well. now,
2:15 pm
media headlines claimed that ukraine is bracing for an imminent had sac. well, a u. s. sense and nato officials are pushing their agenda even further, saying that russia will face consequences once it's at once. it affects ukraine. now, this is just a one of their statements less heavily on us. and i have stated several times thought there will be a highs, a high price to pay for russia if they once again use force against independent sovereign nation ukraine. and also. busy the over the years also increased our military presence in this region, just to make sure that all our laws are totally defended on protect the instant against and the russian aggressive actions. the global posture of you strengthens the combat, credible deterrent against russian aggression in europe. and enables nato forces to operate more effectively. we continue to watch with great concern movements by
2:16 pm
russian military units and near the ukraine border. i obviously can't speak to their but their intentions, but we continue to believe that any escal latoria aggressive actions would be a great concern not only to the united states and but hello to our allies and partners there on the european continent. meanwhile, russian defense ministry continues to record nato forces, movements and near its borders. now those includes at entries of michelle equipped warships flights of america, strategic warplanes that have become more and more frequent. recently, also large scale exercises including unscheduled ones, are being conducted. moscow also says that the united states rehearsed nuclear strikes against russia in november. now, the pentagon responded to that by saying that very drills were announced publicly at the time, and that they all are here to international protocols. meanwhile,
2:17 pm
here are the economic forum earlier and she's there, russian president questioned why nato felt the need to expand in eastern europe with its anti missile, assist them saying that their relationship was almost idyllic. back in the mid nineties. okay, happening right now in the us state of michigan, what you're seeing there is an air ambulance that's just landed in the parking lot of a school where the authorities are responding to what was on active shoot, sir. incident there was 1st reported about an hour and a half ago now had been $1255.00 local time. this is in the village of oxford, which is just north of the detroit metropolitan area where the police were reported to be told that an active shooter was on the school premises. as we understand it at the moment or up to 6 people, our thought were being injured in that incident. and the sheriff's office in oxford township says there are no reports of any fatalities. all the students and staff
2:18 pm
have been evacuated. and the school in oxford is now on lockdown. but at the moment there are emergency service units there. swat teams are at the same store, a heavy police presence earlier on. and as i say, that emergency helicopter, their medical helicopter landing within the past few minutes, also. so the associated pressing $4.00 to $6.00 victims were shot, but there are no confirm fatal shooting victims at this time. the police also say they have a suspected gunman in custody, who was arrested with a hand gun, but there been no further details on the suspected shooter at that school in michigan that unfolded within the past 90 minutes or so. we'll keep watch on what's happening with that video, live out of michigan, and we will of course, update you here on our t international on the way here though, the trial of american actor just a small at begins this week, he's accused of staging a hate crime is one of our stories to come after the break. ah
2:19 pm
ah ah there is no pinnacle of evolution. everything's flat. a bacterium is a product to 4000000000 years of evolution in
2:20 pm
a specific environment so away. so in that sense, when we, on the lucky survivors at the end of a long, long process you so as in to the springs at yellowstone, we will not do very well. and we'll do much better in that sense. a ah, and again his, if i see i used to in the social media scene, but just a day into his new job as twitter, ceo and perry, god ro, ollie's already ruffling feathers with fears of more content cap down to the social network. because his past remarks about not prioritizing freedom of speech, he goes down of talk me through the concerns that are being flagged up right now. the 1st thing to know about twitter is new c o. he may be new as well, the chief executive officer, but his not a new face in the company,
2:21 pm
per se. this sir, 37 year old man of well indian descent, he joined twitter all the way back in 2011 as chief technology officer. so he has already a long, long history of being an executive within the company has been involved with all the pretty much all the main strategic initiatives with twitter. so it hardly comes as a surprise that this person is well, he is sharing the general line behind that the twitter has been taking over the past few years that the, well, twitter is bigger than, you know, freedom of speech that twitter has its own understanding of this term and that it's their backyard and they are, you know, they're in their right to dictate the rules. his are a statement of from the last year that came back to haunt him. now have a listen. oh is not too big. but when, when, but our orders to, sir, we're head only conversation focused less on thinking about each,
2:22 pm
but thinking about how the dance of change. so right now we are still to see his, the 1st moves that he makes because everybody is anticipating or what to expect. from him and some pundits have been arguing or that well he won't bring the will needed change to twitter needed, especially by the investors because there are, they were growing increasingly unhappy with jack doors. he and his handling of war the scandals. you know, around twitter. there's been a lot of controversy, a lot of people who is defending twitter, a lot of people well being on the other side of the fence on the other side of the barricades. but one thing a so far, oh, well, one thing that we are seeing so far that there are no indications that twitter will abandon their policy of, you know, giving some people the spotlight and taking the spotlight from others and doing it at their own will even though the company hasn't always been like this, i mean compare the statement of frog or wall that twitter is not about the 1st amendment, and that it will not be hampered or hindered by it. with something that former
2:23 pm
twitter ceo, for example, on decker castillo, said it to one of our core values is our respect and defend the users voice. and we're the free speech wing of the free speech party. we believe our purpose is to serve the public conversation and that does take a stance around freedom of expression and defending freedom of expression as a fundamental human right? so prague or wall also has experience serve with microsoft, with 80 and t. so his no stranger to the broader, you know, silicon valley and you know, the high tech seen. so we'll have to see what he will bring to the table. and whether or not the concern of an of investors is something he will be able to deal with american actor jessie small as his facing possible jail time. if he's found guilty of staging, a fake hate crime nearly 3 years ago. but with his trial beginning this week, his defense attorney maintained that small. it was the victim of a real attack, came open revolt. while opening arguments are taking place in the trial of actor
2:24 pm
justice, small lat, in chicago, he's charged with essentially making false reports to authorities alleging he was the victim of a anti gain to gay and racist hate crime. now, you recall it was 3 years ago that the 39 year old actor from the u. s. t. the program empire. it was widely reported that he'd been attacked by 2 white masked men who'd been wearing donald trump a make america great again hats. they had a laugh thrown chemicals on him, they had put a noose around his neck. they had shouted anti gay and our racist slurs at him. and then i as well as telling him that this was maga country short for make america great. again, donald trump slogan, while shouting racist and homophobic slurs, he was then released from the hospital. ah, you know, without any serious injuries. and quickly we saw many figures within the democratic
2:25 pm
party. jumping on his narrative of the dance and using them to criticize the trump administration. let's review the reaction of democrats at the time this happened was happened today to joseph mullin must not be tolerated in this country. we must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our haws. well, with you, josie, there is no such thing as racially charged. this attack was not possibly homophobic . it was a racist and homophobic attack. if you don't like what is happening to our country, them black to change it. jassy millette. it's one of the kindest, most gentle human beings i now and praying for his quick recovery. this was an attempted modern day lynching. we must confront this hate. the police began looking in to jesse's malott's case and pretty soon his story fell apart. there were 2 black brothers who worked with josie small lat on the show,
2:26 pm
empire who came forward and said, justice malott had actually paid them to stage the incident against him while wearing donald trump paraphernalia. now at this point, josie, small lat is now on trial for full loan is disorderly conduct, essentially charged with staging an incident and filing false reports. now if he's found guilty, he could spend up to a year in jail, but many look at the case as an example of how eager the democratic party and mainstream media was to jump on a situation and use it to make a political case against donald trump. french right wing tv pundits had exit, moore has announced his candidacy for next year's presidential election despite his popularity public scandals of hurt his writings. as sheltered to bend ski reports from paris, the would be bad boy of french politics has announced t's a mission the running did become the next president of france. this is eric simile,
2:27 pm
who's a highly divisive figure here in the country. but as also in the last few months, showing that who could gain a substantial following and really shake up this race. now he's setting out why who should lead france in this no more time to reform friends? it's time to save it. that's why i've decided to run for president. saw children and grandchildren will not face barbarity. so our daughters will not be forced to wear his job, and our sons will not be forced into submission. so we can pass to them the same fronts that we knew and that we inherited from a ancestors feel a slip of what he does. a war has twice been convicted of inciting, racial hatred. and he's currently awaiting a verdict over a 3rd allegation, he has been clear that he believes white french people will be replaced by norm won't known you repay in immigrants. zamora has also spoken out against islam,
2:28 pm
saying that it threatens front says values. ringback and has said immigrants need to assimilate to the values of the french republic, suggesting that names like mohammed would be banned under his leadership. now, the pun, dates, and right to has spent the last few months unofficially campaigning, as he has been promoting his latest book. his pre candidate show campaign has not been hampered by some events being canceled abroad as he tried to reach out to french ex pats his events, which drew my support, particularly here in france. old. so jo, protests have, i'm, you know, never to have given attention to. i don't even want to pronounce his name. who has said such outrageous things. just an acceptable, even if okay, we're in a country of freedom where everyone has the right to express their opinion. but to give so much visibility to one person like that is shameful. that premier pasco has,
2:29 pm
we hope mr. zima will clean things up a bit. the problem is that it's been 30 years 40 years that the state has been dean mobilized from many issues. and we need to see it clearly. we need to re launch the country. i think the others won't have the courage to do it all yourself that's well today we see that despite our differences, we all have the same problem in our daily lives. that is why we are all gathered today to say no to this, to visit this country. they call them a racist, but it's not true. he's no more racist than i am. i am of lebanese origin, and i'm here and i've integrated, well, yes. now many have also describes him more as being intellectual, donald trump, and he has had a popular right in the polls so far. at one point, even before declaring his candidacy poles showed that he could make a 2nd cut to the round of voting, that will determine he's president and not to shaken up many on the political scene,
2:30 pm
which is very judicial. hey, i've seen that still isn't quite certain as to who will be on the ballot paper next year. current president macro and still hasn't officially throw his hat in the ring, while the republicans who all that traditional party of the right of still to choose their candidates. the moon joins names like marine, the pen socialists, paris, ne, any dell go and the left wing firebrand john nick melisha, and i see eyes the top job in france called having actually isn't half an hour off to scotty now. he's in the team in washington. ah, ah, the trial of design maxwell, i've begun. we're going to tell you what happened on the 1st day despite cameras and not being allowed in the courtroom. our own a, john hattie with diligent and knows all the details and twitters jack is stepping
2:31 pm
