2:00 am
ah, we're driving into the city of alma, perhaps the most dangerous area in got stopped because i can forward to say that arrested $4000.00 ontario charges including foreign nationals. the president claims up to 20000 are involved in the unrest. but more peacekeepers from russia arrived to help restore order. meanwhile, moscow put his back against washington remarks that russian peacekeepers won't ever leave caps. it's down to the foreign ministry, pointing out that the neighboring countries, traditionally close ties and strong military alliance and other needs to saturday germany, titans restrictions to battle the pandemic despite anti code protests intensifying nationwide. we're not left, we're not right. we just want freedom. i feel the message is a disproportionate and i find this division in society. questionable
2:01 am
with happy with this is out here the weekend to i'm calling bright just had said in the morning in moscow. right. going to start with cas external developments. they're, the authorities say that they've arrested for 1000 suspects on terrorism charges. many of them, apparently foreign nationals, soldiers and police have taken back k infrastructure facilities. and they're also patrolling the streets right now, sweeping anti terrorism operations underway and can't extend to largest city. i'll massey by the authorities are detaining armed suspects. the cities being in chaos for days with riots as looting, stores and 2nd fight government buildings. many of them carrying firearms in response president kaya has issued a shoot to kill order. when the authorities have been posed restrictions against going to certain areas that have experienced violence, of several nearby countries, including nearby neighboring russia to have sent a total of more than $3000.00 peacekeepers in it's part of a longstanding military alliance. follows
2:02 am
a request from the catholic president for assistance in restoring order. while you are secretary of state, antony blinking has remarked about sanctioning making the russian peacekeepers leave casks down. but as moscow noted, those troops were legitimately deployed upon request by the catholic government. eco start off reports from nestle time. the country is still reeling from some very violent protest that mostly engulfed the largest city and the former a capital over i of the country, or that is the city of al marti. basically there is still an anti terrorist operation is still ongoing because this is what the government has called the vents . they're the protons that very quickly escalated into marauding and acts of terrorism and are well in fact, the government here is talking about some 6 waves of attacks that, that this city has faced in the past. the 72 hours as a result of a very hard line and heavy handed response. some 4000 people have been detained and
2:03 am
there are dozens of killed on both sides. now helping the catholic authorities to restore order in the whole country because the al marty is not the only a city that has faced violence. and terrorist attacks is an international peacekeeping force and operating under the umbrella of the collective security peace treaty organization. a military block that includes a carfax down, russia and 4 are the pos soviet states. and this international security presence has well drawn the attention of the united states, secretary of state antony blinking has singled out russian troops and has voiced his concerns over their presence. it would seem to me that are the cause like authorities and government certainly have a capacity to deal appropriately or with her with protests or to do so in a way that respects the rights of protestors while maintaining order. so it's not clear why they feel the need for any outside assistance. so we're trying to learn
2:04 am
more about it. i think one or lesson recent history is that her, once are russians are in your house, sometimes very difficult to get them to leave. well, russia has already retorted to these claims and denounced them, saying that essentially that the presence is well, absolutely legitimate. in fact, it spokeswoman for the russian foreign ministry. marie has a heart of us. she has said that, well, since there was an official request for help, the concerns are absolutely unfounded. you are secretary of state anthony blinking has in a typical boorish, manage out to buy the tragic events and cast, extend if antony, blinking loved history lesson so much. then let him keep in mind the following. when there are ne'er akins in your house, it can be difficult to stay alive and not be robbed or raped. only this is not taught to us by the recent past, but they all 300 years of american statehood. well, according to the prisoner of kazakhstan, he has almost outright admitted that the country security forces are unlikely,
2:05 am
are able to. they basically, they, it's unlikely that they will be able to contain this massive security fall out on the road. hence he reached out to his allies. in fact, he's given his own estimate as to how many terrorists are operating, or at least have been operating in the country and his figure is 20000. again, this is all according to the official information there. they were beaten and killing policemen and young soldiers, putting fire had administers of buildings, looting private premises and shops, killing secular citizens raping young women. in my basic view, no talks with the terrorists, we must kill them. well there you have it. and in fact, we're still getting reports of gunfire coming out of the city of almighty, but at least at the same time, there are other reports suggesting that well, at least a little by little of the country, is getting back out to restoring the order on it. soil. from here at marine corps
2:06 am
intelligence officer, scott ritter explained, was why he thinks the united states isn't keen on russian peacekeepers and catholics done. it's pure hypocrisy, but it's so par for the course when it comes to not just the by new administration, but frankly, speaking, any american administration in the post cold war era, you know, the united states continues to be a bitter bad. so somebody like vladimir putin took over from a person like boris yeltsin, i mean the 1990 s, where the ideal for the united states, a compliant russia was replaced by you know, a stronger leader who sought to assert no russian sovereignty either can be no doubt to what russia is doing because extend today is lawful it's part of a treaty relationship. they were requested to intervene and they are doing so effectively to get some context as to why they're involved cuts down as the biggest of the former soviet republics and central asia, as boulders, with both russia and china. how senior correspondent against the has been granted exclusive access to the russian peacekeeping mission in almighty. this is perhaps
2:07 am
the most dangerous parts of the peacekeepers. journey where driving into the city of alma there perhaps the most dangerous area in castor right now. much of the city is still ruled by by roving gangs. gangs of marauders. looters are people who are armed to the teeth. people who have previously swarmed military trucks, military facilities, sees a firearms, including assault weapons and their noon to harass our people. passages, vehicles, the travel into the city. the task is, according to the chasm government, which requested help from the peacekeepers. their job is to seize vital strategic infrastructure in the city, which includes a higher learning, a military higher learning facility education facility. and that is where we are on
2:08 am
our way to. fortunately, the journey was uneventful. show no signs of violence. all the mobs that stalk the city were generally very few people out in the street. simply know where to go. most businesses are shut. shops have been looted and people are fearful of unnecessary travel. while peacekeepers have been authorized to use their weapons in self defense, multiple officials have come out and said that peacekeepers would be out there. quote, restoring order their duty will be primarily to god various sites which will free up cassock troops to restore order in troubled areas. a
2:09 am
ah, what are the locations that c s t o. peacekeepers help secure and guard 1st is the airport. i'll muddy 1st of all because it was the request of the cat government but also because of its strategic value. there had been reports that malicious had tried to take over the airport and had damaged it. those turned out to be fake. the airport is secure and this now welcoming more and more peacekeepers who themselves on their toes. they are well aware that there are those out there who would bad state publications violence to this credit peacekeepers. so therefore, their mission primarily is the secure and the god of the self proclaimed leader of the catholic oppositions also adding fuel to the fire, the former banker previously convicted an absent here of fraud and other charges
2:10 am
has urged the west to intervene. otherwise, he says, russia can make a move to restore the soviet union. his daniel hawkins profiles, the figure who claims to be leading the country's protest. it began as a regional protest against rising fuel prices within days cause i saw was thrown into turmoil. hundreds on both sides of the barricades, injured or killed cities set ablaze on a request for outside help from the president. they seem to be no single uniform policy movement or leader behind the unrest. nuclear demands or specific political agenda. and president, cliff hasn't missed his words and have descriptions of those taking part in the disorder. cookie model, which be to go to what negotiations can be held with criminal murderers. we had to deal with arm them, prepare bonded centera, and both local and farm ones. therefore, they need to be eliminated in the it will be done in the near future. now for the
2:11 am
1st time, somebody is claimed leadership of events on the ground and most are bless off i see myself as the leader of the opposition. every day, the processors call me and ask, what should we do? we're standing here. what should we do as social media profiles certainly backs up as planes, a daily stream of support for those taken to the streets across the country. but who exactly is a bless off dissident businessman, criminal fugitive. over the years, he's been labeled as an accused of many things. once a member of the cadillac political elite, he served as head of because extolled electricity, grid operating company, and then minister for energy, industry and trade before apparently becoming disillusioned and turning against then prose that it knows that a bias found in the democratic choice of cause external opposition party, soon off that he was convicted and sentenced to 6 years jail for corruption and abuse of power steering his work as any humanist. but he was pardoned and released
2:12 am
a year later, his role as head of classic song. initially successful b t a bank landed him attention from catholic authorities with the bank nationalized by the government. he fled to the g. u. k, fearing for the safety of his family and was granted asylum. but things was so simple. b t, a bank had been subject to one of the world's biggest froze of the time with over $5000000000.00 embezzled and obliged off. accused of being the master mind sending the decades behind bars that i've sent in both calixto on russia for fraud. and later murder, he was in hot water with authorities in the west, with lawsuits against him in multiple states, a prison sentence, and multiple arrest warrants will eventually issued as you can, solemn status revoked. he fled to france where he was obtained by authorities. at one point, it seemed all over for a blast off with
2:13 am
a friend's cord approving his extradition to russia or ukraine, but subject to an intense campaign by human rights organizations. the process was stopped, and plaza was granted asylum. once again, a plaza has made no secret of his desire for regime change and catholics done with himself in government and currently to ship in prison. i want to return to catholic son and become prime minister. remove the regime and send current government to prison is applause of really behind the full scale of events on the ground and catholics thought with development happening so quickly. it's hard to say for sure though, we have approached them for more details. common. one thing is certain, whatever the outcome of the cause, i protest the revocation will be wider than the countries borders. and both ruling governments and opposition movements in the region and beyond. watson closely to make their next move the that's one of the players. what about the cause is, well,
2:14 am
the unrest in catholics down initially emerged you to a sharp rise in fuel prices, but it quickly evolved into broader anti government protests. we discussed the crisis and its other possible underlying reasons with geo politics. experts. the reasons for these kinds of riots, well, they kind of destruction could not be purely economic. and also let me tell you that because i start is a relatively reach nation, mostly thanks to the natural resources and thanks to that industrial base that had been created. so the reasons i think were political because certain class, southern forces inside the country felt themselves under represented. and obviously very quickly the products which were peaceful in the beginning, but hijacked by the forces which wanted political power in the country. the protest do look coordinated, you know, when you go after a tv station, you go after a,
2:15 am
an airport that's out of the playbook, isn't it? of the revolution. but there is no obvious leader, can an uprising achieve anything without a clear sense of direction? no, it's no, it couldn't. you do need to lead. i think it's quite interesting covers just about it from protesting for fuel cap. and these moves that we do see, as you said, possibly revolution taking of the television station, the airport burning down, certainly government buildings and certainly as you said, the degree of violence, this is more than just a simple protest against a government or against a regime or against policy, this is looking with its far more serious than the context, unsure is an 1800 kilometer border with china is beijing worried about any potential spillover, especially in mission. jung province of metal, but apart from oil, which china imported a lot of oil focused on exposure from took them is on. and also in recent years,
2:16 am
china, a lot of cold from custody. i think in terms of energy security, castanan is actually extremely important to china. let alone we talk about the one bed one know initiative which is actually cost on is center of the whole thing. yeah. so, so this is in terms of a stream really important to china and i don't think i would just let just on one on this own. we need stability in the area or it's, it's actually part of much, you know, you only have to look at seconds of stunned neighbors. you know, the likes of becky stuff there. so the neighbors upcoming stuff, that's an unstable regime. we need stability in that region. we see how important it is to have an ally like russia and we have an organization like collective security. you're going to his agency, s t o to help us down in this very difficult time. now,
2:17 am
well laid to is saying that all c s u is no punching beyond its way. they have no right to and they kind of want information about that. well, she still has been suggesting corporation to nato since they can. they get to see the still was found it and they don't just did a great and i see a still the western but it said that they don't see this as they need you to ment, organization. they didn't want to talk to c s you'll. so the west or because it sells to blame for not having the information all the information was available and, and either available to you without the, the weekend on the way it's advantage. australia is the country deals yet another to start with a back ham blow over cubic visas. with all the details and reaction among all stories off the break. ah
2:18 am
ah. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on, often has very dramatic development. only personally and going to resist. i don't
2:19 am
see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk ah, hello again. germany's cove restrictions are about to get even tougher. was daily infections that rise to almost $40000.00 up from $22000.00 at the end of the year. out of the new rules coming in, being double vaccinated won't be enough to enter bars and restaurants. customers will also have to show a negative test or proof that they've had a booster shot. not everyone's happy with that. as you can imagine, protests have been erupting in several major cities. but despite the fears pushed back, the german chancellor is adamant that the new rules are vital to protect public health. with shifting, one thing is clear, the armor chron variant will keep us busy for a long time to come. that is why we cannot sound the all clear for our health
2:20 am
system. we all know what helps, besides the contact restrictions, which we still need to talk about. it's about continuing to vaccinate and boost forbush while the german chancellor olive salts and the leaders of the 16 states here in germany have agreed to impose stricter rules and regulations in an attempt to try incurred the spread of cove at 19, at a press conference that was held on friday here in the capital city, berlin. it was announced that now when it comes to giving people access to bars and restaurants, it's no longer enough for people to have had to vaccinations. in addition, they will also need to have had a booster or a negative cova test. and indeed if they've had a booster, should they come in contact with somebody who tests cova positive. they will not have to go into any kind of isolation. at the same time, the isolation and the quarantine periods will be reduced from the current maximum
2:21 am
of 14 days, particularly when it comes to so called critical staff. so this would include your doctors, your nurses, your police, and your emergency personnel. also private gatherings that until now have been limited to 10 people who are either were covered or vaccinated, that will remain in place. now the counselor did say that these strict measures are indeed necessary if germany is to control the spread of infections moving forward. we've also heard from the health minister who has said that the most problematic area is restaurants, where people sit for hours with no mos covering in a separate development. earlier this week, more than 20 boys and girls who received a concentrated vaccination that was supposed to be for adults and not for children between the ages of 5 and 11. it happened at a vaccination center at the zoo, and doctors have said that they're in constant contact with the parents and that
2:22 am
they know dias side effects that they have witness so far. but as a result of this moving forward, there will be separate vaccination centers held for children and separate ones for adults. now this comes in the back of people continuing to protest against the code, restrictions or against the vaccination. and this is across the whole country just on thursday night alone, it were nearly 200 protesters who took to the streets of bay berg. and on the same night, hundreds of people protested in. we're the house and take a lesson, isn't it? we're not left. we're not right, we just want freedom peace and not someone telling us whether we have to get vaccinated or not. every one should have freedom of choice. what i feel the measures a disproportionate and i find this division in society. questionable. i want the parties to listen to each other so that we're not totally divided by this. yet it's no longer a matter of being vaccinated or not vaccinated. everyone should slowly wake up and
2:23 am
ask themselves whether all the measures we have been subjected to here for almost 2 years. it justified this past monday evening. more than a 100000 people took to the streets across germany and early the government did ban such protests. but what you see now happening is an authorized so called walks, which by and large have been peaceful, although some of them have turned violent. a 2nd tennis star has had their australian visa cancelled for not being vaccinated against kobe. the czech republic, double specialist, renata, whichever is now confined to the same immigration hotel as serbian tennis, dark world, number one, no back doc of it. we can confirm that the check tennis player renata for a java is in the same detention as jock of ich, together with several other tennis players in melbourne. our consulate, general and sydney is now dealing with the situation and is in touch with the tennis player or it overflow into melbourne with
2:24 am
a vaccine exception. like the one that was granted to joke of it on the basis that she had recently recovered from cove. it but both players visas were abruptly cancelled, and jock ventures launched an appeal with serbian officials saying he's a victim of political harassment. however, the australian prime ministers defended the decisions against the athletes, saying there should be no exceptions to the vaccine rules. rules are rules, is what i said yesterday. that's the policy the government and has been governments strong, border protection policies, and particularly in relation to the pandemic. that is ensure the destroyer has one of the lowest death rights from cobit anywhere in the world. we one of the 1st countries to move on shouting abolitionists. we were criticized at the time, but it was the right decision. and we have maintained those important border controls. the entire period of the pandemic. sports columnist out of more explains the problems of therapeutic exemptions and suspects. the clamp down is only expected to get strict we're not already playing. she already paid. it is where
2:25 am
there were there russian players and ga player. where did we socialize her? and then suddenly she get taking like a door and say okay, you're, you're moving out of this or down, you're going to intention centered. great questions. the suggestions, because what they've been told is terry players were checked. so she had no because i didn't where he says that he can't take it because of his heart issues . so it's kind of like now kind of think it's going to get worse before it gets have that said from alta, moscow, this, so i'm calling braille. be back here with the next update and around 35 minutes with with
2:26 am
max and stacy are in mexico anyway. heading south and we're getting closer and closer to the data center, the global sensor point now of the big coin for revolution. ah, [000:00:00;00] ah, i'm after tanzania watching going underground the team and i will be back for a brand new season. on wednesday, the 12th of january,
2:27 am
but until then we'll be showing you some of your favorite shows from this season, ah, 20 years since preparations for the u. s. war on afghanistan began in the week of the 911 terrorist attacks and bought 2 will be speaking to the man who was chief of staff to george w bush's secretary of state colin pal. but 1st to one of the greatest chroniclers of the united states empire, a filmmaker explored both the horror of 911 and the planning of us imperialist was before and after 9112001, and joined. now, by all of a stone oscar winning director and writer films like salvador j, f, k, world trade center, nixon wolf street, amplitude of a thanks so much for coming back. gone. no, happy birthday. that's what i going to say to you. first of all, i mean the commentators are all talking about how your films are, are one way to cope with 911 the 20 year anniversary. can you see why $75.00 is very young and you should be pulling out at least 2 or 3 feature films
2:28 am
a year now. my father lived to about 75. exactly. so i think, i think, you know, modern times had been good to us. prosperity has been good to us and allowed us to live longer. so i'm grateful. and i hope i stay young and making films as tough. but i've been working really hard on these 2 documentaries that are coming out of j of k one. we talked about con, that's coming out in november 22 birth the date of his murder. and the other one will be coming out early next year. the clean energy one, which i think we did a lot of work on. and i was in paris, a scoring it with the composer vangelis, the greek composer who i worked with before. and he's wonderful is great, great score. and i did about documentaries, feature films are much tougher to make. yeah, i mean, but i was thinking, brian depalma, who directed scarface, which he wrote, i mean, he's getting on,
2:29 am
he's older than you. he's putting out film feature films out. i mean, and we can you see why your fan certainly would think as the war on terra so cooled and does new phases as they need you more than ever. keep in mind the way i see it is what feature film could be as important as climate change. and this, when you see this film i did, which is called star power, you'll understand that it's very important. it's something that will change people's perception of what's going on and may help the world enormously to adapt. and that's, that's why i did it. so my purpose, it's about purpose and there's no nobler purpose in my opinion than to deuce tend to serve mankind. so a film is fine, but it's so hard to have impact around the world with something like this. i mean, we want you to come back on to talk about that. so when, when it's out of course,
2:30 am
i actually saw world trade center theoretically as your nora film, i suppose, a disaster movie. ah. but then i thought again about it, thinking it was a class movie, some people i think you yourself said, you know, you save the politics for w, about george w bush and his response. but do you think that the well trade center and why you like the film is because there's something about the american working class, they're in it. it was a pure film for me. it was something that i did it because i thought there was so much and it was 4 years after the event. and there was resistance to making it even then because it was close to and we shot some of it in new york city tightrope. there to get close to the world trade center and to do it. but the point of it was that these men existed these 2 men. that's their story and their families,
