1:04 pm
that's why i'm sending in more 1000 more to join the 500 already in minneapolis in nearby st paul this is the largest civilian deployment in minnesota history that we have out there today and quite candidly right now we do not have the numbers we cannot arrest people when we're trying to hold ground because of the sheer size the dynamics and the wanton violence that's coming out there but as you've seen there's already shots being fired back at our people this arson that is taking place puts many people at risk are firefighters are specifically and very open to target from coast to coast protests and violence have spread to more u.s. cities in washington the white house was briefly on lockdown as crowds front with police in the capital. and in atlanta georgia the c.n.n. news channel's headquarters came under attack police cars were also targeted prompting a furious response from atlanta's mayor you are disgracing our city you are

disgracing the life of george lloyd in every other person who has been killed in this country this is not a protest this is not in the spirit of martin luther king jr this is chaos a protest has purpose when dr king was assassinated we didn't do this to our city crowds in los angeles chanted i can't breathe some of george floyd final words as his neck was pinned to the ground. and back in minneapolis this excessive days in 1000 ivanka go on john hendren al jazeera minneapolis. at least one person has been killed off the sauce was thought a process to us in the u.s. city of detroit's police say someone opened fire on the group detroit is wonderful in a dozen u.s. cities without being at these demonstrations. there's been recombination of the
1:06 pm
police sanctions and george floyd's death from some within their own ranks with a story the scenes of george floyd handcuffed being choked to death by a police officer has led to outrage within the insular tight ranks of the law enforcement community there was unusually quick condemnation on social media a new york police detective said the officer involved brought dishonor to the profession we take over to serve and protect and would like to see that that officer. on who speaks other police officers had equally pointed words it's time that we take these bad off as a speak out against and start holding them accountable and hold them to the same laws that we expect. and i hope justice prevails and i hope those people are found to be guilty of murder because that's what i was. second i want to say and we got to change this we got to break these barriers in these walls and we've got to
1:07 pm
do what we can as police officers the bigger picture is how the killing of freud is going to complicate police work throughout america already many black communities are distrustful of law enforcement this is only going to make it worse when you see . what should be a routine apprehension become a. defacto execution it is it is extremely unsettling to watch and former new york police detective keith taylor says there are systematic issues of race that need to be addressed makes it more difficult for officers interests simply trying to do their job every day. the fact that these. negative incidents that occur do get publicized really brings to the forefront how important it is to address the inequities that
1:08 pm
occur in our criminal justice system an incident that has left many police officers just as outraged as the people they're sworn to serve and protect many wanting answers and justice gabriels on doe al jazeera new york well they picking as a board member of the communities united against police brutality he says retraining and institutional changes are required to address the underlying problems within the us police. no officer will ever testify against another officer and so we see that not just the one officer who had his knee on his neck that is the grossest violation but that 3 other officers did nothing about it at the time when it was clear to everyone else on the scene that george floyd was being killed that's what really matters is the actions of the officers and in all
1:09 pm
the deaths we have seen in minneapolis no officer ever testifies against another so even if their words are sincere it doesn't show in the actions that we've seen here how quickly the officers were fired is very unusual i think part of that is due to this incident being so so horrifying to anybody who watches the video but remember before that video came out in public the police information officer was trying to claim that the officers noted that he was having a medical incident and they assisted him so it was only when the other video came out that they were forced to tell the real story they lied in their original statement because they thought they could get away with it the people who are saying these things are no more honest now than they were then they just got caught so yes after a particular group is incident like this there's got to want to be
1:10 pm
a lot of soothing words but we need to see real changes institutional changes changes that have been promised to us after the previous deaths and have never happened. plenty more still to come for you here on the news including kicked out with nowhere to go by people living in a slum in colombia's capital fear being a victim during the coronavirus pandemic. we have had people that have not eaten in days of the charities and volunteers filling the gaps as persons welfare system is overwhelmed. the sports news football returns in austria with the players finding themselves in plenty of space. u.s. president announcing the u.s.
1:11 pm
is cutting all ties with the world health organization accusing it of being overly influenced by beijing the president also confirmed an end to washington special treatment of hong kong after china approved a new security law for the territory here's alan fischer. unusually for a news conference at the white house president all trump opted to use a teleprompter and stuck to the script but in the week where the number of covert 1000 deaths in the u.s. went through the $100000.00 mark the president used the occasion to cut ties with the world health organization and returned to calling it the would hand virus china has total control over the world health organization we have detailed the reforms that it must make and engage with them directly but they have refused to act. the president has been angry about china's trade practices since before he took office the protests this week in hong kong beatings decision to extend security powers there has added to that anger hong kong has had
1:12 pm
a special relationship with the u.s. the president wants to punish china and says hong kong special status is no more my announcement today will affect the full range of agreements we have with hong kong from our extradition treaty to our export controls on dual use technologies and more with few exceptions we will be revising the state department's travel advisory for hong kong to reflect the increased danger of surveillance and punishment by the chinese state security apparatus president also announced he was imposing sanctions on chinese and hong kong officials i think this is the the amount of actions that he and house as well as the severity of actions that he did announce depending on the implementation of these actions this is probably the nuclear option that this initiation of do you think china will react and respond i think china has to
1:13 pm
respond in this case there are so many actions that the trump administration announced today that if they don't respond and domestically they leadership risks looking weak to their domestic audience president trump gave a long list of grievances about china's economic actions there's nothing new there he's done it before what was interesting in his 10 minutes in front of the cameras he made no mention of chinese president xi a man he regards a strong a man he's praised in the past even for his handling of the coronavirus brick. alan fischer al-jazeera at the chinese embassy in washington. germany has blasted donald trump's announcement saying it will cause unnecessary harm the health minister john spahn tweeted in german french and english that's the disappointing backlash for international health if that world health organization will make any difference for the future it needs reform and the e.u. must take
1:14 pm
a leading role ending gauge more financially that's one of our priorities for our presidency to go pollens in hong kong she says trump's announcement on ending preferential treatment for the territory could be disastrous for the economy there . about half of all the investments that go into china are come out of china go through hong kong that means billions and billions of dollars passed through hong kong really helping hong kong's economy get going get the wheels turning on its economy also many businesses also rely on this kind of capital so yes this is going to have a huge impact on hong kong's economy in fact hong kong's finance minister has said they are already looking at all kinds of measures of putting strategy in place to for all kinds of scenarios depending on what the u.s. decides to do but to help you understand how this came about basically it was during the protest in which the pro-democracy front particularly joshua was just
1:15 pm
one wants group lobbied the u.s. congress to keep an eye on home pumps autonomy and safeguard home concertina me giving it the whites to take measures against anyone who does try to road this autonomy and now the u.s. is using those powers to say that they are going to take away on special trade status because they no longer see china or hong kong as autonomous for china so while many of the pro-democracy front and perhaps human rights activists will be celebrating as there's a somewhat of a victory many other people in hong kong the business community and in fact many small businesses will be concerned about this in fact the american chamber of commerce commerce call this is a sad day for hong kong because this could really affect on consequent to me and people still a likelihood ok let's bring in kevin stan he heads the government and international studies department at hong kong but just university he joins us on skype from there
1:16 pm
. can we guess or speculate as to an actual figure that this is going to cost hong kong. oh it's so hard to the cars long car the year a new sanctions by 0 there are trying to learn for the very simple release there are there is still a lot of what we don't know what the exact track shows which are going to be and darters by the chairman is frozen a lot of the sanctions which are probably the most of you know the. only imposing restrictions or sanctions on our officials who for the dark being at you that amount you natural to the law i think it's clearly. part of the sanction we're going to be 0 or the restrictions of the visa as well are no more useful than the. seizure will be the sanctions the t.v. station of you all to call a g. explores to hong kong because many of these exports may be china our economic
1:17 pm
countries which in her word the u.s. have also invoked section right rather so i think. it's clear there will be some sanctions but you know i've seen this people's oath a lot of pressure from the american business community this sounds pretty hardcore to me the sanctions which may affect those companies then the american national review yeah ok when it comes to those american companies and american nationals or america facing companies will they see the writing on the wall and think it's time to leave and if they do that does that mean that chinese companies will move into that space. well that's. i wouldn't exclude you but at the same sound most american companies will try to use their hair at indigo the ones which. are very active in china where. all need for which the chinese market is very you know
1:18 pm
from going in the activities so we will try to stay you know a lot of economy maybe more fiction because they will eat less of the security. and that's an issue we know it's the east germans police actually and so security organs start opening branches that you know that they need the stronger position to exert as the villains are earthlike companies u.s. companies sell us up and you've made here one constable stay here in the long run but i don't think american company will make any sudden decision to you that becoming a greeter but do you think it will lead to more protests on the streets because the protests we've seen up to what 3 or 4 weeks ago were protests against in effect a piece of extradition legislation brought in by the legislature in hong kong for the protests were against the hong kong legislature but now we're seeing the
1:19 pm
protests aimed directly and squarely at the authorities the government in beijing. you owe me nothing me have started a plant between sets sometimes i'm. only in there young protesters are all earth to the street again into problems are to get their nationals and their little you know and our you tube inside of the national anthem of the you can be prosecuted or have been a number of demonstrators ours in small number of arrests that is pretty high you know every time you're on the taxes went up to the street where the big question leigh where when the social decency ocean restrictions will be used to in early july or when a. lot of people got out and protest or the mid-south will take place on july service where is that which you turn to the return of all of you to china and
1:20 pm
so it should really you have a large protest on. you whether it will be a lot of people don't seem to get that national security law the big question is hard you know these will be that the content got that law and where are the pressure exerted by only on so you may sort of total now or are you the confidant that's lord it can make sense in the way the law is going to matter ok we'll leave it there. in hong kong thank you very much thank you. a plague of locusts is devastating big parts of india and pakistan billions of dollars worth of crops have been damaged creating fears of food shortages elizabeth iran has that story from new delhi. across thousands of kilometers and flying through the air billions of locusts have swarmed large swathes of agricultural land in pakistan and india devouring any vegetation in
1:21 pm
their path i have lost fruits one thousands of dollars spent all my life growing these trees but all these swarms have destroyed. the us because pakistan bellew's more than $4000000000.00 worth of winter and summer crops. the government is using planes to spray pesticide we have now a 9 year graph we are looking for 6 more and i'm sure we'll be able to pick. the locust which would be coming from iran as well as from moscow and in turn is coming from africa that while locust plague is not news scientists say climate change is making them worse they say this infestation is driven by unusually warm weather and heavy rains in the arabian peninsula last year creating the ideal breeding grounds for locusts move in swarms of up to 50000000 each swarm can travel 200 kilometers a day each as much food as $35000.00 people and lay $1000.00 eggs per square meter
1:22 pm
. in india have blanketed western and central states during a heatwave higher temperatures help the insects spread more rapidly as well as plain pesticide local councils in the state of multipart there is a playing loud music from speakers mounted on vehicles in an effort to drive the locusts away i do think that if they stay here for more than 8 days they'll start laying eggs and if they start laying eggs it would be very dangerous for us we've arranged for bands to play in the villages to make noise to try and scare the locusts away. experts warned that india's food supplies are also that risk if the invasion isn't controlled before the end of june that's when the monsoon is due to arrive in northern india and locusts mature and breed elizabeth broad and al-jazeera new delhi. ok let's talk to keith cressman he's a senior locust forecasting officer at the food and agriculture organization of the united nations he joins us from rome keith cressman welcome to al-jazeera why is
1:23 pm
this plague affecting such a massive area where our. back of course to 2018 when there are several cyclons are brought in very heavy rains to the arabian peninsula that started this this entire sequence of events since then of course there's been very very good rains and so this is in response to the rains the locus numbers have been breeding every 3 months there's a new generation there's a 24 increase and this is exponential so you can imagine after 9 months there's 8000 more times the number of locusts so this is why we have these enormous swarms large numbers of swarms in different countries so not only in india at the moment but they're coming from from different places of course what can the farmers do what can the farming companies do what can local and national governments do. but
1:24 pm
local and national governments particularly in india have been warned in advance they knew that this was about to come since january and we had predicted it would be coming just around the later parts of may early parts of june and what's different this year of course is that it came a little bit earlier than expected now since the beginning of the year state and federal governments have been taking preparatory anticipatory actions to prepare to respond to this now local communities farmers they can help these efforts immensely by contacting local authorities whenever they see locus infestations and they should not try to scare them away because then the locals they tend to scatter and it's much more difficult to treat them if you're a farmer for example and if there is breeding but of course we're not expecting breeding now but later on the farmers can dig trenches around their crops to help protect the them from the young memes that might come into into their fields worst
1:25 pm
in 20 years we're being told as well can we expect more of the same. yes this year in particular in fact that the threat is unprecedented there are threats of additional successive waves of swarms coming in and missionary now from pakistan this will be supplemented in the next coming weeks and later the next month from iran as well as oman and then towards the end of june early part of july there is a threat from the current infestations in east africa where the swarms will travel from northeastern somalia across the arabian sea into the desert areas of india and pakistan now the current locusts that are moving across central and northern india and they will probably go back to raja stan for the beginning of the monsoon rains so they're in a that's of those rains at the moment so they're in
1:26 pm
a holding pattern they're not mature they're not ready to lay eggs yet they need those rains in the desert areas and in order to lay they're not happy to lay in the northern central states of india ok we have to leave it there keith cressman thank you so much thank you. time for international weather forecast here's jenny talking about a site close close to amman yeah apostles like on this one peter haven't formed yet it might not do so but the main problems the rain so let me show you explain exactly what i mean this is it there's you couldn't see of there of course is oman so as just go to a bit closer you can see and a bit more detail on this is been sitting at the last couple of days and it is producing some torrential amounts of rain so much so that this is actually a crest of hills that inland in the surround salalah literally until 2 days ago they were dry these waterfalls and this is what's happening all the water's come down is coming down from there and it is just flooded all the streets in the city you can say well it's like a river again isn't it through the streets calls submerged and in just 2 days
1:27 pm
itself has actually seen 260 millimeters of rain and this system is not done just yet now this is continuing through saturday so the actual center of this storm with reception thing the 2nd is not particularly clear it hasn't yet come on shore that is expected to happen later on saturday into sunday at that point of course that may not develop or may not develop with all that into a tropical psyco but what will continue to happen is it will continue to produce some torrential amounts of rain now the track of this system a little bit uncertain but it does look as if through sunday it's going to head further to the west then it will push into these areas of yemen but all the while it will continue to produce some torrential amounts of rain and again over the next 3 days we could see another 500 millimeters or more of rain peter that's half a meter of rain so we're looking at more very very widespread flooding to keep an eye on that for some children in the meantime thank you very much still to come here on the news hour for you.

extinction rebellion is focusing on what it describes as the government's incompetent quotes response to the coronavirus pandemic it comes as a 3rd british scientists have warned it's too soon to lift the u.k.'s locked on for more let's go live now to. our correspondent in london hi there nadine good afternoon so word of warning re easing the locked too soon too quickly. that's right peter there are growing. concerns being voiced around england's particularly where these new measures will come into place on monday they say that people can gather in groups of 6 rather than the current. guideline of groups of 2 i mean looking around this park in central london it's early there might be more later fairly quiet but anecdotally people have seen large groups gathering already in the last couple of weeks ahead of this change the the as you were saying the
1:32 pm
scientists who belong to sage that scientific advisory group to the government at least 3 of them now saying that they believe the changes coming in on monday which also involve opening up schools gradually are coming too soon john edmonds one of the most well known of them on friday said he thought that that change to the to the locked out actually came with a significant risk because currently there are still around $8000.00 new cases per day of coverage 19 which is much higher than in other european countries which are easing their lock downs he's been joined by colleagues and also the greater manchester metropolitan mayor andy burnham he's a labor politician he's been saying that he believes that it should be up to local or thora t's to decide when to ease their measures it shouldn't be on a countrywide basis this is just a single and not for scotland wales or northern ireland who have their own timetables but certainly those fears a based according to the scientists on things like whether there's
1:33 pm
a. test trace and isolate program fully operational it started. in the week but they're worried that there aren't enough tests being done there aren't enough traces who are being employed and there aren't enough figures exactly about how many people will be tested on time how quickly and they're saying that until that's guaranteed things like schools reopening really are is a step too far peter so is there a sense there that the government is in control. all of this or not because i mean this time last week we were reporting on this program from the isle of wight on the south coast of england track and trace the app wasn't working but the government wasn't telling us this channel why it wasn't working and yet they're rolling it out yet they're saying we are using it it can't be doing both surely. could point only on the app itself it's been delayed by several weeks they're not
1:34 pm
really talking about that in the daily briefings they're also not answering the question of why the number of tests being carried out per day has not been released for around a week now it was previously but there are suring people that the test trace isolate program will be working but it will we know that it won't be fully operational till the end of june hence the calls from some of those scientists from opposition parties now and some trade unions for things to be delayed but it looks like it's certainly in terms of telling people what they can do that will happen on monday people can visit markets and car show rooms they can gather in large groups go to see their families if they stay in gardens or private outdoor spaces whatever that means it's not quite sure but not only have there been worries from the scientists of 1000000 people now have signed a petition saying that dominic cummings the privately adviser to prime minister boris johnson must resign over his perceived breaking of those guidelines when he
1:35 pm
went up to the north of england to stay with his parents and a former chief advisor scientific adviser david king has said that the government has lost its moral authority because of the dominant cummings affair and he says the way to win that or 30 interest but he's certainly not to be a page with the public and not to rush through the easing of look down measures to change the headlines of course that's his opinion but it's one that's being voiced in a lot of courses here nadine thank you very much. well seeing in the u.k. charities there say they're seeing a sharp rise in the number of people needing their services many were already struggling to get by before the pandemic of things is so bad the parents can't afford nappies for their babies and people are going days they say without any food lawrence lee reports now from stoke on trent thank you for having me emphasize 3 nothing more than that if you want to know what the sharp end of the coronavirus crisis looks like now then take a look in here it isn't
1:36 pm
a health care issue stoke on trent hasn't seen as many cases as other parts of the u.k. it's what weeks of isolation has done up to so many people. mark is a barrister by profession but with the law courts closed he's given his time over to taking supplies to people who have no means of getting their hands on anything he's been asked to deliver to emma and her children she suffers from anxiety and can't leave the house the facts contained enough to keep them going for a fortnight and how they need it it would be very difficult. mallaby case what the software has been to probably go without food to make sure the kids have got. to be after them up before. the next stop is heartrending claire has 2 boys aged 2 and 4 they both have chronic lung conditions if they left the house and her husband could kill their sons. i mean it is not exaggeration to say that you could be instance over the whole of the year and. if it about that she is in patients have got to
1:37 pm
remain until vaccine it could go into next year if they get paid for it it would kill them it would kill them. these are just 2 of the 130 drops the volunteers would do the day we met them we have had people that have not eaten in days because they cannot get the food they simply can't get the food they don't have about but it's all very well for the government to say well we have a welfare system like universal credit that depends upon the bureaucracy to be able to kick him straight away and hope that it's not there the good news part of all this is the level of donations is astounding castles of essentials for mothers and babies are arriving all day some from the public others from supermarkets there's a push on for the u.k. to be more positive with the summer here and virus cases falling but for many people there's far less cause for optimism i think it's really jarring about all this other newspaper headlines this say that britain is about to go back to work
1:38 pm
and things are going back to normal well that may be true for many people but clearly there is now a whole section of the community in this country which could barely cope before coronavirus and now is genuinely in suffering so i hear it or actually hayley who set this place up well before the virus changed everything is now running at least 700 delivers a week and every week it increases she's worried about what happens when the government announces things have gone back to normal the local businesses the small businesses those at them fail at all of such ups for them it isn't going to be back to normal so for us to demand is going to stay like this for a lot longer well to try and fix $33.00 or 4 'd of them take many months ago policy advisers in london identified a swathe of society they called jams short for people just about managing since the virus hits those people plainly cannot manage at all what the future would hold for them without the intervention the violence is hard it is thinking about largely
