ah, ah, german chancellor, anglo merkel announced his harsh curbs on the unvaccinated as rallies continue against mandatory inoculation. amid a surgeon coven worries over the new oma kron strain strain. as rushes top diplomat notes, the u. s. has torn up practically every treaty with moscow. so gale of rob, warmth, that the kremlin won't take kindly to even more har sanctioned, threatened by his american counterpart and talked in sweden. and a trove of documents appear to show the u. s. government failed to prosecute cia employees is suspected of child sex abuse. ah, or they live from moscow, this is auntie international. i am calling bray with the world news this our 1st
5:01 pm
then more and more countries detecting the new cobit strain, omicron among the latest or india, switzerland, and iceland, or in germany. the government there is announced, tightened restrictions on unvaccinated citizens, and as considering making jobs mandatory as outgoing chancellor anglo merkel says, vaccinations are the only way out of the crisis via the end. we will reserve access to coltrane, recreational facilities and events throughout germany, only to those have been vaccinated or cured. it is also possible to do an additional test for those of the complete vaccination plan, though every day. shops like supermarkets are excluded by wilbur measures being imposed. not every one into ebony thinks they're necessary. one anti mandatory vaccination rally and munich on wednesday. let the classes with police as you can see, police used force to calm people down. those protests was also held in solidarity with a similar demonstration in austria a day before. as for some novel ways to treat the sick in germany,
5:02 pm
a clinic in bavaria is illuminating the rooms of coven patients with a red light. it's to try make conditions more comfortable and relaxing, but as you can see, it also makes the number of covey cases clearly visible from outside the building. and quite a few of them, as you can see. and germany's chancellor to be all of schoultz, has voiced his support for compulsory vaccinations. he said that he wants of 30000000 people to get the job by the end of this month. but critics say that that's on enough time for ologist, thomas schultz from the hanover medical school points out there to achieve that feet that would have to be more than a 1000000 vaccinations per day. that has been kind. lucas seeker, if you will have to vaccinate $1250000.00 citizens per day. it managed that an early summer when vaccination preparedness was high at that time, many people were vaccinated. in the meantime, it has become more rare. the problem is not the injection, but the education. we need to find a clear legal solution so that no one is held liable if there is a vaccination problem. technically it is certainly possible and many other
5:03 pm
countries do the same. i have never been a fan of compulsory vaccination, but i think we have to do it. we see there will not be possible to vaccinate 90 percent of the population, otherwise we need that to deal with delta. and if our micron turns out to be more dangerous than we will have to achieve such a high vaccination rate, there is no other way to do that except with compulsory vaccination. the vaccinations will work at least to some extent. it won't be that the vaccinations don't work at all against tom micron. we can be sure of that. the question is how effective they will be if we assume that the vaccinations will now work so well against the army kron. it is important that we achieve a high vaccination rate. that is the most important thing. that is why we have to vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate, and boost, boost, boost. and in south africa, the country, the 1st identified the variance daily new cove. it case is there of doubled in the past 24 hours, but everyday life there is continuing pretty much as normal with shots restaurants remaining open on teeth. full a slayer is that can south africa a positive case of day?
5:04 pm
now this is a 20 percent increase on what the figures were just a few days ago before the commute perfect value. and we conduct was discovered the carolina wifi. so can you imagine that south africa to wait find for 1st came forward and i paid to high to please train. you have people here with who are just to fight it the way strong or open. nobody, as you can see, social discipline thing. nobody is wearing moss. i'm one of the few people can just, i think i'm the only person who's wearing them off and even that is on my turn being out is, is or is it is right by. you can also not limit your life for living in fear, because if you live in fear, you will always be consolidated to the circumstances that you are in for like going against rule. so we don't, we don't, we not very law abiding citizens in many cities around the world. you have to show a passport when entering a restaurant. in other words,
5:05 pm
keeping vaccinated. hearing south africa, no such thing exists. and this is a country way 70 percent of the population has not been vaccinated and the entry boxes are using and that's new on the, on various booth at vaccinations. don't do anything you need to do in south africa when entering a restaurant. it's put on some kind of car, the only gets an entire and sometimes it gets screamed sometimes on his screen. ok, temperature, which is the temperature of the city mean back off when? well, some people can go to a restaurant during the 19th. but because of the ignorance, nobody actually take it into consideration. so i feel like the safety protocols letter please put in place and not enough to ensure that everybody is safe. you can only assume that everyone is vaccinated because you would never know. so if you vaccinated, you did your plot, it sounds like the place it of the population to remain calm. he says that there is
5:06 pm
enough information known about when we conduct this state not to justify that restrictions. i think he has that in my confident, mandatory destination for some activities and for some location. it's the situation to terry. in the meantime, the sub to open, the restaurants are open to schools open. you can travel any way in the country you want. you can wear moss keep enough, where? moss, you can, social distance, you cannot social distance. in fact, what more south africans are afraid off is not a locked down, rather than i'll be con, fully c a r t. one is the south africa. russia's top diplomats and his u. s. counterparts of hell 10th talks in sweden at a meeting of the organization for security and cooperation in europe trading morning. so for a military escalation in eastern europe and with washington threatening to further extend sanctions, moscow says that it will be forced to respond. that's all europe correspondent, peter oliver report. i suppose you can't get to grips with bridging wat,
5:07 pm
divide to you unless you get all of those problems out on the table. it certainly seems to be the way diplomacy is being carried out here in stockholm it on the sidelines of this o se ministerial conference, as the former minister of russia said, a gale of rav held a meeting with the secretary of state of the united states. anthony, blinking what we heard from said gala rolf was a list of issues he has and what and russia has with the way that russia has being dictated to by nato, by the united states. and by the west. he said, time and time again, the western partners of russian nato, the united states. everybody else saying that they had either miss on st. misunderstood or deliberately misconstrued the minsk agreement. and until that was properly adhered to, that it could never ultimately be a reality on the ground. talking about treaties though, said gala, for all pointed out that there is a real lack of agreement in concrete written down when it comes to russia and the
5:08 pm
west for those new continues to escalate the situation directly on our borders. and as for military security and the euro atlantic region, it continues to deteriorate. so there is only one treaty left between rushing the united states on the limitation of strategically offensive weapons. the treaty on short, medium range missiles and the open skies treaty were essentially torn apart by our american colleagues. a, sag 11 off also said that in the very near future, moscow would put forward a new security strategy. and you security packed that it wants to see, have some certain things written down in black and white as far as the relationship between nato and russia goes now antony, blinking. the u. s. secretary of state also had given a press conference following that meeting. he said this as far as he was concerned, and as far as the united states was concerned, russia posed a significant risk to the security of ukraine. and he said that if there was any increase or any action taken by russia to further increase those at those risks
5:09 pm
that were posed that they would be serious consequences, there would be serious consequences for brushing aggression toward ukraine as well as some of the efforts that we see russia taking to try to destabilize ukraine from within. well, the problem with sanctions, of course, is as they always result in counter sanctions and fight said gay law for all did say that there had been essentially a failure of diplomacy from his western partners and said that if serious sanctions were imposed on russia that there would be consequences going back the old away, usually parsley group. know if, if new as they say hellish sanctions follow, of course we will react. we cannot not react. what will be our response? it will be seen. i do not want to guess what the west will decide to do, threatening some financial sanctions, new sectoral sanctions. this is
5:10 pm
a dead end road, and in the end, you will back fire on the initiators of these illegitimate unilateral measures the secretary of state of the united states and the foreign minister of russia. we're never going to get to the bottom of all of the problems between the 2 countries here in stock co. what we may potentially take away from this is something that anthony blinking said after his and his meeting with said galen, for all he said that had been a frank and full discussion and honest and sober debates. and that both have foreign ministers, both senior diplomats will take that away to their respective presidents. and we may well see some more discussion it that much higher level in the very near future evidence has come to light. could some c, i employees have been involved in child sex crimes? a trope of documents is revealed in apparent failure by the u. s. government to prosecute cia employees suspected of child sex abuse. he goes down of reports. more
5:11 pm
than 3600 pages of deeply disturbing material. 75 of them ever more. so the part of the trove logging sex crimes against children committed by at least 10 cia employees and contractors in the worst of cases against very young children. when had inappropriate sexual activity with an unidentified 2 year old girl committed to having inappropriate sexual contact with funder, then 6 year old on 2 separate occasions, the personal evaluation board or did you, nana, mostly to recommend termination and revocation of his clearances. the eastern district of virginia u. s. attorney's office declined prosecution of based on taint issues. this individual whose identity was clothed by a code name along with everybody else was fired but never charged. according to the papers and other ca, employee was caught with thousands of inappropriate images of children. on his work
5:12 pm
laptop, the agency employee had used his united states government, laptop computer to view approximately 14000 images of pornography, of which 1400 were under age individuals. the united states attorney's office decline prosecution of in favor of administrative action by the agency. in view of the personal evaluation board recommendations is recommended at this case, be closed with no further action was any legal action taken against them. while the answer to that question remains a mystery, none of the 75 pages mention anything of the sort. they do mention a cia contract to them who crawled into the darkest corner of the internet and thought he was seducing a child. the child, luckily, turned out to be an undercover of b. i agent from allegedly solicited an undercover special agent from the fbi i in an online chat room in an attempt to travel interstate for the purposes of having sex with what he believed to be an under his child. the case is being closed,
5:13 pm
the agency terminated the contract with the individual, and again, apparently no further action was taken. yet they say they take such crimes very seriously. while we cannot comment on the reasons why specific cases with declined, we do take very seriously any allegation the are prosecutes is declined to potential case based on an improper assessment of the relevant factors, except according to unconfirmed reports. the c, i a was actively unenthusiastic about the idea of legal action against its employees and contractors, concerned more with the risks of classified information being compromised in the court. crossfire cia officers and contractors can commit the most heinous crimes, crimes against children, and not be prosecuted. they are very good at covering up crimes. all they have to do is say, sources and methods. all they have to do is say that they want to protect classified information. there should have been whistleblowers at every step of the way. and
5:14 pm
the reason why it took so long for this news to finally see the light of day is because the cia fought it in court. this is what the polygraph is for. it's supposed to weed out perverts and criminals and crazy people, unless there is serious change inside the cia and certainly more transparency. i don't see this changing at all. and it took years for these papers to even become public and reveal that apparently the c i a badge is a real life equivalent of a get out of jail free card even for the worst of crimes. we've sent a request to both the c, i and the us attorney's office for virginia to get that comments about these cases . if when we hear back, we'll of course, let you know what they say. next court ordered the biden administration to return to a trump era migrant policy that the president passionately opposed and pledged to end . but a texas judge is required the white house to restore the remain in mexico program,
5:15 pm
which sends refugees back while the immigration claims being considered. the ruling found, the government broken the law and how it had reversed the scape as kind of open reports. let's officially called the migrant protection protocols, though it's commonly referred to as the remain in mexico program. it was instituted by us president donald trump, during his administration, requiring migrants who would like to get asylum in the united states to wait in mexico for their approval. they don't wait in the united states, they wait across the border in mexico now biden was very opposed to this policy as he campaigned for president. this is what joe biden said before he was elected. donald trump's remain in mexico, policies dangerous in humane and goes against everything we stand for as a nation of immigrants. my administration will end it. the biden administration initially tried to dismantle and shamed this policy that was left over from the
5:16 pm
trump administration, but they were immediately taken to court by officials in missouri and texas, who took the biden administration to court. and now it appears we have a texas judge ruling that the remain in mexico policy must be re implemented in as we wait for the ultimate results of an august lawsuit. now, at this point, we've heard a comment from jen saki, the white house spokesperson about the re implementation of this policy, that biden initially oppose. and we want to end this program, but we also believe in following the law. and that's exactly what we're doing as there was a, there was a ruling that required us moving forward with implementation. now there's been a very significant increase in the number of migrants crossing the u. s. borders since joe biden has taken office, a lot of videos and information has been revealed about how these numbers are rising. the number of people crossing over the u. s. border has been
5:17 pm
a big point of contention. many of jo biden's critics in the republican party and in local and state government in places like texas, arizona, new mexico. i have been re critical of biden and his administration and how they handled the situation on the border. so it appears that starting next week, some border towns in texas, i will be re implementing the remain in mexico policy of the trump administration, a policy that biden initially opposed and tried to dismantle. but it appears that it will be re instated your without c for moscow on the way after the worst storms in a decade. c 100 miles per hour. winds batter britain, tens of thousands of homes as though without power 6 days on, on next story. when we come back
5:18 pm
ah ah mm one of the many paradoxes of big coin is that it wants everyone to attack it. that's it makes it strong. that's it. makes security go higher. that's what makes price guire. and now we've got some new delinquency on
5:19 pm
the same attacking baseline. ah ah, again, up to 30000 households in the u. k. of been without attic tricity for a 6 day after a huge storm calls the biggest power disruption in more than a decade and claimed the lives of 3 people. northern england and parts of scotland were worst affected with many residents forced out of the homes. i come home, it's what it feels. look like, i have no roots. it's a bit tough. sorry, i mean to cry, but it's been hard. like we brought our animals at home that she we got to go for each other one today. and it is to feel very unsettling. you still trying to work and take the kids to school and carry on like normal. but everything feels up to
5:20 pm
down, you know, really have a base. so it's been hard. well, tens of thousands of people in the north of england are still living without electricity or a power supply for a 6 consecutive day now, and it feels like there's simply no end in sight, because many people have been told that their power won't be restored until at least another week. now i'm in south lakes in cumbria where people are really quite desperate now to try and find a warm place to stay. hotels like this one have indeed open up their doors is being funded by the local counselors, nearly 1800 people are still in a near, on black out in justice every year alone. really that includes those most vulnerable, like the elderly, those living alone as well in as i can really say, absolutely freezing weather conditions. now the local counselor who's been relentlessly working day and night to try and re home people. she says as the community that's really come together,
5:21 pm
she hasn't seen any support from the government. the government is not in the community has done everything. it was only yesterday that we got the fist and teams going out and actually attempting to find people. but that was 5 days into this with as a say minus 5 degrees to 2 degrees temperatures. if he was ahead o people who in a room with no heat, no lights, no food, no means of a hot food, no hot drink. if you say that 8 and a half or one nights, he would say that was extreme fat to that and it's, it's been ongoing now. well, the prime minister boris johnson says he's extremely sympathetic to all of those that have been affected whilst the business secretary, he says that the government is ensuring that people are comfortable when he was taken to task in the house of commons by the opposition. what is the government doing to help the most vulnerable residents enduring to get the help that they need
5:22 pm
not to moral, not next week, but to day, we are working with the job or the local residents for the 1st instance. in the 1st instance, to find out what's going on to coordinate local responses. and then the government has very, very focused on helping them to get what they need to make the situation much more comfortable for people haven't been comfortable. that's certainly not the reality here or tool. i've had numerous stories for many different people saying that they'd be waiting days to get a response from the power supply companies only to be central generic text message saying that they are working to fix the problem. now we've seen that damage really caused by storm all, and we've seen debris in the roads, live wires, a power supply wire simply on the roads aren't even in people's garden. so this is no exaggeration to say, it's been an incredibly traumatic time. we went to blackboard to stay the but the
5:23 pm
commuting is just been so hard. obviously we've left our house left animals and we just left for blackpool. and i finally got hold of somebody when i was in blackpool, who said, we do know of your fault because the 1st few times we had friends phoning for us and they said, or they don't know of your fault, we flag them down and they said they don't know of the faults, and then i did get hold of them. they said we do know of your fault. no. and just to be patient and so wait. so we're waiting. we haven't heard anything yet. so when they gonna fix it. well, the government in power supply companies say that this situation is totally unprecedented. and of course, it is storm all. when has the wind speeds up to 98 miles per hour and marries of the country? the snow has just continued to fall. it all really feels like the united kingdom isn't really prepared to deal with a situation like this one, but it has taken some areas almost back into the victorian era and leaving families at totally in the dark. britain is led by
5:24 pm
a clown not saw the french president. brandon boris johnson, as france is. former u. k. envoy wants the relations of the lowest in more than 200 years. a leading unpaid from johnson's party brushed off microns insult calling. his anti british stanza pantomime designed to win votes ahead of next year's french presidential election, and mcroy allegedly may the deeply on diplomatic remarks in a private conversation after a growing number of public brows. mojo talks to me, full speed, everything's going well. we have grown up conversations, but he strikes me before and after, as having an inelegant way about him. it's always the same circus. it's sad to see such a great country with which we could do so much led by a clown. in the latest spot, micron took offense. at her letter, the johnson tweeted that appeared to blame franz full record flows of asylum seekers. paris them promptly scrapped its invitation to the u. k. to crunch european talks on migration. last week, a cause 27 migrants died, attempting to make the perilous journey across the english channel. as their
5:25 pm
inflatable boat capsized, it was one of the deadliest events since the migrant crisis began. our front of the u. k. of also been at loggerheads and a post breakfast dispute over fishing rights. all that said some of the british premier's fellow party employees had been rallying to his defense thing. we're into pantomime season on we and as a friend selection coming, as i'm pretty on out for word. because the prime ministers in the town is the elected prime minister of this country with a very big mandate leading this country through the pandemic. i'm surprised to hear that and, and disappointed and openly, i'm sure that we can continue to try and work together to tackle this unconscious that we will. i will hope that we will get a formal response back. a lottie host of former british m p. george galloway says the world leaders should refrain from making such bitter comments about one another, especially in public discourse. only old fashioned, but i don't think the heads of state and heads of government should be publicly talking to each other and about each other in this way. it is indeed
5:26 pm
a toxic on tong carbajal that we have now. but if bodies johnson is the circus clown, i'm afraid the manuel micron is the circus dwarf and the british and the french deserve better than the leaders that they have. but they're the only leaders that we've got and they have to go on with resolving war arm. i think post partum politics. this is a anti nato, a post natal depression, on the part of the french and b, e. u. in general. we have left them, they find it impossible to bear. they want us to fail. they want us even to suffer, and they are ready as is abundant, may clear every day to permit the floor of thousands of people every week trance has the opportunity to elect a new president. soon i hope they take the opportunity to make
5:27 pm
a change just as i wish, that the british people could make a change. i'm satisfied with neither of these 2 leaders, but as long as they are the leaders, then they have to obey diplomatic norms. the bodies have 6 more minors have been brought to the surface of a siberian coal mine where a blast couple and 50 people almost a week ago on thursday that image to, to made his anger clear towards the mind management who he holds fully responsible for the incident at east dmitri polk has more on the president reaction to russia's worst mining disaster in a decade. well, it's been a whole week since a deadly explosion rocked village 1000 a coal mine. the tragedy ultimately took the lives of 51 people. that's including 5 rescue workers who tried to locate trapped miners,
5:28 pm
but unfortunately they couldn't make it out. now, efforts to clear the might have been going around the clock ever since then. and today rescue workers have recovered 6 more bodies of the victims from the mine. now thus, as president puts in, weighed in on the tragedy during a meeting on the situation. and the crews vos reason, frankly put in was not happy about a number of things. first of all, he lamented that fact that according to preliminary reports, the mind management deliberately ignored warnings of excessive gas build up. and he added that the results of the tops of gas answers have had apparently, also been repeatedly falsified. now the president became particularly enraged, even slammed the table. after hearing the report on the miners salaries, he stressed that not only were they low, but they were also tied into how much coal they could procure, which literally meant that they were willing to take unnecessary risks, which eventually contributed to the catastrophe. but ultimately present,
5:29 pm
put in blamed the management of the mine. wish, as he said, instead of taking safety precaution seriously, they chose to prioritize their profits and count their money and faked security inspections along the way. now all this comes as the criminal investigation into the incident is still ongoing. 5 people have so far been arrested and that's including the director of the mine, as well as his deputy and a couple of safety inspectors. now the tragedy, as reminder, completely stunned the cuz boss region on november the 25th and emergency services are still on the scene working day and night, trying to secure the mind and recover the bodies of all the victims. meanwhile, the grieving families have already received. vanessa can pay out by the authorities and more are being promised, but many of them also want justice for what happened. and for that well, we'll just have to wait and see where the investigation goes. and that's your use for now. maxon stacy are on the way pondering while the bank of england so worried
