12:02 am
president donald trump says the oath or is there a need to get tougher and offered to send in the national military this while it appearing to encourage a counter protest by his own supporters friday nights all classes at atlanta and houston in new york and other cities while a 19 year old man was killed in detroit when shots were fired from an s.u.v. into a crowd of protesters the continuing protests came despite derek show and that's a police officer who knelt on george floyd's neck being charged with murder so the u.s. attorney general has pledged that justice will be served in the floyd case but he said the violence has nothing to do with his death. the voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and file an agenda in many places it appears the violence is planned organized and
12:03 am
driven by anarchic and left extremist groups far left extremist groups using anti for like tactics many of whom travel from outside the state to promote the violence we begin our coverage this hour in minneapolis where john hendren spent the night among the protesters. a curfew in a murder charge against a police officer failed to bring calm to minneapolis. the city's new curfew beginning 8 pm some protesters responded by setting buildings on fire hundreds of others continued to peacefully protest the death of a black man george floyd after his arrest by a white policeman who was. also severely
12:04 am
children who was fired shortly after floyd's arrest on monday has now been charged with his murder but it's made little difference on the city's turbulent south sunne . demonstrators defied the curfew and a large deployment of the national guard some took out their anger on businesses such as the department store and occasionally journalists. others lined up to challenge police who answered with tear gas but failed to control the unrest these national guard troops have been blocking roads and they've been protecting firefighters as they been putting out the many fires you can see one of them back there but the governor says there are simply haven't been enough of them and that's why he's going to get more. i'm authorizing and talking to general johnson to fully mobilized the minnesota national guard an action that has never been taken in 164 year history of the minnesota national guard so let's be very clear the situation in minneapolis is no longer in any way about the murder of george floyd it is about
12:05 am
attacking civil society instilling fear and disrupting our great cities 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 this 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 just praising our city you are disgracing the life of george lloyd in every other person who has been killed in this country crowds in los angeles chanted i can't breathe some of george floyd's final words as his neck was pinned to the ground. and back in minneapolis his excessive days in 1000 event go on john hendren al-jazeera
12:06 am
minneapolis meanwhile the clear up has begun in minneapolis some residents have banded together to help clean up damaged banks and businesses across the city after the protests others have taken to the streets peacefully denouncing police violence and george floyd's death for the u.s. president donald trump spoke earlier about the protests and said he is prepared to deploy the national military. we get our military there very quickly they've got to be tough they got it wrong they got it back. but people keep it a lot of radical the people they've got to be told that it was going down to watch great blow. so that was the u.s. president speaking earlier about the protests let's cross over to our white house correspondent kimberly hallock and she's joining us now on the issue of the national army that trump was talking about doesn't have the authority to deploy the
12:07 am
military in that way. the president does not in terms of the military cannot act as a policing force to enforce domestic policies is the posse comitatus act of $878.00 it's expressly limits federal military power and they can be deployed the president's correct about that but only for the purposes of support and only if requested those are very key phrases in there are words that really is the nuance of this argument so for example the military could be brought in to build barricades to potentially use heavy equipment to block a road even hand out water what they can't do is a rest somebody so this is a really important distinction so when the president says that he's sort of deploying the military it's not for the purposes of rounding up individuals and that is a real important distinction of the united states or having said all of that the attorney general bill barr has been talking about u.s.
12:08 am
law and also about this case when it comes to george floyd he says look at the charges have been laid the process is under way justice will be served but he also has talked about the concerns that these peaceful protests are being hijacked by those that are not honoring the memory of george floyd and so he spoke to those protesters as well essentially saying look at when it comes to federal law if you cross a state line for the purposes of inciting a riot or participating in a riot you are breaking the law and protesters meanwhile are back in washington where you are kimberly what's the situation there. yeah so it's anticipated to be another very tense night i can tell you it's a heightened state here at the white house already there have been u.s. secret service in heavy sort of tactical gear that have been deployed to the 17th street entrance of the white house campus what the concern is than all of this is
12:09 am
that the u.s. president earlier tweeted that it was magen night at the white house tonight what does that mean it's his 2016th slogan slogan make america great again and many are fearful that essentially the u.s. president sort of issued a rallying cry to his conservative supporters i can tell you our producer white house producer chris sheridan is in amongst the crowd right now he's not seeing any of those supporters who responded to the president's call however there are more than a 1000 and protesters that are outside the white house right now they have already called the 2nd line of tactical u.s. secret service to hold the crowd back we are reporting that in fact there is there are protests or standing on secret service vehicles right now and i can tell you the situation inside the gates of the white house is very tense there are dogs that are on standby heavy military type gear in terms of the weaponry and guns that
12:10 am
could potentially be deployed there not playing around it looks as if they're preparing for a very tense night one that could go into the wee hours of sunday morning i can really we'll leave it there for now sank you very much. here with the news hour coming up in just a moment we'll have more on those protests that they spread to cities across the u.s. will cross over live to new york for an update and fears of food shortages and plagues of locusts swarm across india and pakistan devouring any crops in their pocket. but 1st chile has now registered more coronavirus cases than china at almost 95000 while in peru doctors and nurses say hospitals can't cope with the rising number of coronavirus infections and are demanding more government's help despite enduring one of the world's longest mandatory lock downs it's reported 141000 infections and
12:11 am
more than $4000.00 deaths including doctors priyanka gupta reports. the stilton is we're on the frontline of the fight against the cone of silence into their call the. a black ribbon hangs on the facade of the medical college in lima a reminder of the price paid by these health workers battling the operate in the 2nd hardest hit country in latin america there are more there are 4 board behind me of the 36 doctors who have lost their lives until today and represent the most painful image right in front of this location we also have 1300 medical doctors who are ill and of which $23.00 a seriously ill in our intensive care units that is the reality for doctors in peru . they say hospitals are overwhelmed with the rising number of cases. many are dying at home. and
12:12 am
crews large just have a tree limb are elements among freshly dug graves. and. have lost 2 brothers in a month but i'm glad they're not suffering any more because of the pain that they went through. for the survivors it's a different kind of struggle. anxious to end it is that a hospital and part 2 are struggling to get proper care for the infected family members he told me that my mother was entering critical care and there are no i.c.u. beds they see there are no beds groovy and 7 dueled one of the world's longest nationwide lockdown since march which is not due to be lifted until the end of next month. yet the virus continues to spread lockdowns and social distancing are difficult in a country where more than 20 percent live in poverty and 7 out of 10 workers depend
12:13 am
on a daily wage millions still have access to water and i found that we don't even have enough water to wash our hands or our things and if we don't have water what are we going to wash ourselves with. doctors say the pandemic has exposed spruced many existing problems and pushed underfunded and understaffed hospitals to pretty can point and they warn that the battle against the virus will be lost unless they get more government. on to 0. well brazil has overtaken spain to become the country with the 5th highest number of coronavirus deaths in the world more than 27800 people have now died there after another 1124 deaths were reported on friday almost 27000 new infections were also recorded in 24 hours bringing the total to more than 465000 but experts
12:14 am
say the real number of cases could be 15 times higher president or your boss an ira has pushed back against the kind of lockdown measures implemented elsewhere to slow the spread of the virus let's get an update on this without assad or a patsy he's monitoring developments from colombia's capital bogota so this is quite a grim milestone for results or reached the 5th deadliest country in the world. absolutely there in the corona virus there has left in its leaving a trail of death from the populous face of rio de janeiro and sao paolo in the southeast of the country all the way to the amazon where doctors are having a hard time reaching the affected communities deep inside the jungle and as you were saying now brazil is now the 5th country worst hit to anywhere in the world the death count there surpassing the one of spain one of the worst hit country in
12:15 am
europe in a press conference earlier today the minister of health said that the situation is probably much worse than what the government really knows given the fact that there hasn't been the possibility in brazil of doing widespread testing the real numbers could be up to 15 times higher than the confirmed cases so far which is obviously very warring for a very very large number of brazilians but the president of brazil jail here both and i remain faced by this unprecedented crisis and again on saturday he was gathering the crowd at this time at a roadside restaurant outside the capital brasilia even have a mask on and again he was taking selfies selfies and embracing hugging
12:16 am
supporters and calling once again for the country to reopen despite the fact that the numbers of infections keep going higher and higher in brazil at the end of all this will probably be the worst affected country anywhere in the world after the united states and there are other countries as well in the region that are reopening like colombia and mexico despite rising numbers there. yes here in colombia we had one of the earliest in strictest law lockdowns anywhere in latin america which has helped according to experts to slow down the spread of the virus control the the curve of infections but these numbers of been going up as the country as reopened in past weeks and now the president here seems to be extremely worried by the effects that the lockdown has had on the
12:17 am
economy in particular on unemployment to that is now past 20 percent april as being the worst month on record. when you look at the loss of formal jobs in this country and so the president has announced for further easing of these restrictions starting next monday which means that malls and. commerce could reopen however local authorities have responded that at least in cases like here in the capital bogota that is still seeing an increase in infections that can't happen yet and the mayor is expected to announce new restrictions later today for now they say that everything remains as it is in the capital bogota and least until june 15th also the mayor of cali colombia stirred city and the coast city of quetta to get their hand i say say it's too early to ease those
12:18 am
restriction to mexico is also bracing for a reopening at the beginning next week even if all the states in the country except for one are still at the maximum level of risk of infections and again on saturday doctors and nurses of public hospitals took to the streets of the capital there to protest of the easing of restrictions the lack of supplies and the deaths that they think is too high of many of their colleagues all right sanjay thank you for that update. for the 1st time a privately owned rocket has successfully sent 2 nasa astronauts into orbit. it looks. good thank god. so bob bankhead and doug hurley are now on their way to the international space
12:19 am
station aboard the dragon craft which launched the talk a rocket owned by space x. a pair of the 1st people to blast off into space from american soil in nearly 8 decades they're due to arrive at the space station for a 4 month stay on sunday spring and mrs j. gray he's joining us live from the kennedy space center that's in cape canaveral florida hi there so describe to us the moment it's a cough and what people's reaction there was like. really amazing an amazing to see for the 1st time in almost a decade as you talk about an american made ship leaving american soil with american astronauts inside the trip to the international space station will take about 19 hours they'll get a nap though i can't imagine sleeping after a lift up here and it was a picture perfect launch everything seemed to go exactly as planned and continues to go very well as they now are in orbit and working through the different checks
12:20 am
that they should this is a test flight obviously it also comes at a time when this nation needs something to bring it together you've got to grow a virus which is affected so many here and then the unrest in several major u.s. cities going on right now because of the virus not as many people as you would imagine here on the grounds of kennedy space center in fact all of the public viewing areas were closed down people were not allowed to come on to the space center property to watch this launch they did however line the beaches the roadways leading in the community space and so a lot of people there watching what is happening and then more millions watching online on television this launch as you would expect there were cheers from those who were here at liftoff and a lot of people just in all of what they've seen here is america gets back into the space race but in a very different way now rates and particularly on that difference jay i mean how significant is it that this is a privately owned rocket. it
12:21 am
was pretty amazing when you think that they abandon the shuttle program after ouf was well past its prime and went longer than they ever expected almost 9 years ago and now have a private industry that is building these rockets that have at this point now lifted humans into outer space it's pretty amazing that they made that leap and that change in that small amount of time what does nasa think it will do they think it will open up space travel they believe that they'll be able to take many more trips now to the international space station there's obviously a target of the moon to get to and they hope to do that within the next several years and then it opens up massive scientists man engineers to really focus their work on deep space and ultimately getting to mars a lot here think that you'll have a stop off point at the moon and then head to mars and so they'll focus on that
12:22 am
wall space x. 0 works the process of these most space trips it also could open up corporate space travel it could mean that people who aren't nasa astronauts will actually be able to take a ride in space that's the ultimate goal and when you talk to space x. when you talk to the administrators here at nasa they don't think they're that far away from that happening all right it's interesting jake thank you very much for that update from cape canaveral let's take this on with charles f. bolden jr who's a former nasa administrator and astronaut as well he's joining us from merritt island in florida that's near the kennedy space center thanks very much for your time with us on the al-jazeera news hour so what will you be looking out for over the next 19 hours as they reach the i assess and beyond. doreen and thanks very much for letting me be with you and i'm ray i'm probably right inside of where jay just talk to you because i'm here at the kennedy space center in the next 19 hours the crew will be going through a number of orbits and evolutions in catching up with the international space
12:23 am
station and during that period of time after they get a good natured rest doug hurley their commander and i think bob being can also we'll have an opportunity to do some manual maneuvers with the vehicle using the touch screen that's a lot different from spacecraft that we've flown in the past and then on the final approach to the international space station tomorrow they'll do a few manual maneuvers before the stable as the vehicle and then the vehicle will fly itself an autonomous lead for the final docking so how significant is the slants for you and what does that mean to you. it's awesome if i can put it that way it's it's the culmination of you know it's the culmination of here in the united states that the it's the culmination of the dreams and plans of a number of it ministrations people like to focus on the present administration but this here started several presidents ago president obama picked it up you know after the bush administration had talked about doing it and actually put
12:24 am
money against it and we were able to entice several american companies to put in bids or proposals in the 2 companies that ended up with human spaceflight were boeing in space x. but when people talk about looking at more opportunities in the future we have another american company sierra nevada that has now been accepted and has a contract with nasa to fly cargo but space x. has another human variant that has wings it looks like a miniature shuttle so my my whole being is that they're you know if they keep progressing the way they are now we'll have a 3rd american spacecraft to carry humans to orbit within the next 5 years or so there are so does this hurt than regular people a step closer to potentially going to space if you have the money of course that's very expensive. and daryn is still you're absolutely right it's still expensive but
12:25 am
today he puts regular people regular people. much much closer than we ever thought possible before so this a friend of mine mike massa mino another astronaut in talking to someone this morning i think on c.b.s. on the c.b.s. network said this draws a line in the sand of the new era of human space flight and i agree with him because from here on out the prices will come down gradually over the next decade or so and so the concept of normal human beings who are not career astronauts will become quite realistic in fact if it all goes well you're going to see a non-career astronaut or more more than one fly to space to the international space station within the next 2 to 3 years. just a quick question for you and a final question though is this all going to call into question sort of as a frank elation when you have companies now competing for space.
12:26 am
it's commerce and so you know people have been thinking about this day for a long long time. right now through what we here in america call the national space council it has almost every cabinet member on it the department of commerce here in the united states has been charged with coming up with the types of regulations between the department of commerce and the f.a.a. and nasa the types of of relations and guidelines that will keep people safe when they fly to space and will also regulate access who can go how often and what orbits they can go to because the international space station very soon will not be the only lower its orbit destination what we're trying to do now and what we hope to do in the next 3 to 4 years is actually have our 1st commercial space station where there will be more than one destination for crude missions to go alright
12:27 am
we'll have to leave it there charles bolden joining our great to talk to you thanks so much. and good luck to your audience too thanks very much. narrower than is our knowledge and there are there is much more ahead including. some of us some scientists warn the government against lifting lockdown restrictions too soon. and us that is unveiled in iran it's the on of those who fought and died in the battle with coronavirus. hello you say goodbye to the heatwave that's been in portugal recently is cloud invading and that's true for no means by eastern europe is still covered and had some of it quite dense has been some heavy rain recently moving through poland

group known as sage say things are changing too soon they pointed out the government's test trace and isolate program so crucial if another peak in infections is to be avoided it won't be fully functional until the end of june. our level you know it can quench 7.9 so it's only a bit below one so we've got radial and dream actually and it's really important. we use the editing very wisely and we don't lose control again you know i can understand the desire is for the relaxation of the social measures but we really can't go back to a situation where we've got the numbers of cases industry out in the past some scientists have also said the number of new covered 19 cases still are to around 8000 per day is too high to move to a new phase of relaxing restrictions for a monday people in england can meet in parks or gardens in groups of 6 not the current limit of 2 but the sunny weather has raised the prospect of people
12:34 am
preempting that of course what's important with these changes is that the guidelines still say keep 2 metres away from people you don't live with by and large that is being observed but it's for. from universal if people start to lose the distancing habit that could be a real problem as more of society opens up the government's trying to balance restoring personal freedoms against preventing the virus from getting out of control but critics say look down measures being lifted too quickly the al-jazeera . thousands of protesters have gathered in bosnia's capital over allegations of government corruption opposition groups joined the demonstrators in seri a vote protesters marched towards parliament they're angry over a defective ventilator as which were imported from china for coronavirus patients are raspberry processing firm with ties to the government for a cure at a 100 ventilators despite not having a license to import medical equipment 3 men have been arrested over the incidents
