to give justice to these are people on board of that plane one of them is also tribunals are currently being held here in and near amsterdam where 4 suspects are on trial 3 russian former military and one ukrainian but they are sort of a low to middle rank and the relatives of victims have always said that they really want those responsible in the higher ranks and then they're talking about moscow probably the kremlin that they also want to be them to be held responsible so this step to the european court for human rights could be an important step to have to feel fulfilled that the wish. in the news ahead the top infectious disease expert in the u.s. says he hasn't briefed president donald trump 2 months. there is investigations unit uncovers how once a promise is a spurt in how huge violent song lyrics and friends.

says he says and do so publicly they don't last too long do they but anthony has been around for a while and he's and he's guarded quite a following. yeah i believe he's worked under 6 presidents i'd have to double check that but the point is that he's been around as long as live lives in washington which is more than 20 years it speaks to just how well liked he is on both sides of the aisle he's highly respected as one of the top infectious disease specialist in the united states and of course he's on the court of ira's task force so that's why it's raising eyebrows when he was close to has actually spoken directly to president trump although he acknowledges he believes his messages are being delivered but the 2 men haven't really sit down face to face in more than a month and that's really a story this started to gain traction here in the united states because as you point out there are a number of states that are particularly concerning but just last week 33 states saw increases in their covert 1000 cases so when you only have 50 states that's
a pretty high number more than half and the concern is that these men maybe are not communicating and that means not serving the american public as the u.s. president is to be leading this coronavirus response now the president for his part and they have been publicly you know disagreeing with one another in the past it hasn't just happened in the last week it's been going on back and forth for some time donald trump has said anthony found she is a nice man but he's made a lot of mistakes and you pointed out the mistake that the president's made and that is that saying that 99 percent of covert $1000.00 cases are harmless but we know that's not true in the anthony found she's had to do some cleanup on that essentially saying what he told the president through some indirect messaging was that there is a one percent mortality rate but we know that tens of thousands of americans are hospitalized every day as a result of this virus so it's it's not harmless and in fact infects
a lot of people in the united states disproportionately communities of color especially if they have high blood pressure or diabetes so the concern is that this information when there is very. 1st wave of fear of a 2nd wave in the fall going on that these 2 men are communicating now we should point out one of the hot spots is southern florida and that's where the president has gone to speak again not wearing a mask why is he there right now well he's there for a fundraiser he's hoping to make about $10000000.00 from this fundraiser after be outraised by his opponent joe biden consecutively for the last 2 months thank you kimberly and i did check you right absolutely right 6 presidents since reagan in 1984 that white house correspondent. russia's top diplomat says he's not optimistic about his country on the u.s. extending their last remaining arms control agreement the 2010 pact which puts limits on their nuclear arsenals is due to expire in february 2021 in the last year
both nations withdrew from the 1987 intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. with the nuclear the risks have significantly increased recently the situation in the sphere of international strategic stability is obviously on the downward path the reasons are also obvious to everyone the us wants to return themselves to global domination and a proud of the victory in what they call rivalry of superpower states they refuse the term strategic stability and call it strategic rivalry and in this rivalry they want to win at any cost the president of kazakhstan is threatening to sack is entire cabinet if the corona virus outbreak there isn't brought under control the country and its 2nd covered 19 lock down on sundays following a spike in cases because it's done has around 55000 infections and 260 deaths critics say the true number that was likely not much higher. whom initially committed i don't remember the recommendations requirements of the minister of
health should be the priority for all of the members of government demands the minister of health has a special status an order to the government to mayors offices ensures the provision of daily reporting and information in combating the pen demick to the ministry i hope the current situation will improve in 2 weeks otherwise we must raise the question of the government's work practice in its current form. health workers in sri lanka are scrambling to contain a sudden increase in infections a rehabilitation facilities now reported a cluster of almost 340 cases the center is the locks down and contact tracing is underway after an employee went away. and now fernandez with more now from colombo . the huge spike in the number of corona cases overnight literally 10 percent of the national tour group has been quite a shock for the government the source of this a drug rehabilitation center in the cargo but for 5 hours outside the capital colombo now the government anxious to see that contract traces everyone why the
move through these centers or in some cases as zeroing in on members of staff who have gone off on holidays like the lady that we had in not she was brought in tested positive and now obviously families that have come into contact with her or those on the isolation now obviously for sri lanka which kept. a strong handle on the situation i mean certainly going by the officials they manage the people he says for a long long time to have a bed minimum knowledge that he's the reason this is so much of a concern but beyond that we even have public health officials making some dial warnings. saying that unless some stringent action is taken in for some tough times . in order to control covert 19 laws must be brought in to create
a disciplined society we have been asking for specific quarantine laws but they haven't been introduced if this isn't done all control measures including around the upcoming elections will be a challenge we are stressing that we cannot continue to put our officers in danger and may have to withdraw from the studio. and. as you can see. very much business as usual with. schools. all the. couple of weeks. from now we have a general election and the government obviously doesn't want to see. all of these things. before the fact that.

sides were accused of war crimes 6 serbian officials were found guilty and last month the course of a president. was indicted on war crimes charges. today kosovo is willing to almost invisible the country declared independence in 2008 but a type of cold war continues with serbia repeatedly blocking kosovo as attempts to join the united nations the european union has spent 9 years trying to normalize relations between the 2 sides with little progress in 2018 talks stalled completely . since then angela merkel and emanuel have led countless efforts to smooth over differences and restart the dialogue recently some success the cost of a removing its 100 percent trade tariffs on serbia but in return pristina wants belgrade to finally recognize its independence if serbia does that it wants
membership to the e.u. . i believe that at the end of the mandate of the next government we will complete negotiations for membership with the european union which means that it would be realistic to become a member of the european union in 2026 that is my hope that is my belief president trump was hoping to be the new mediator needing a diplomacy win before november's election but president that she was indicted for war crimes just days before the meeting that she says there is no evidence he broke the law and hinted he believes the timing of the indictment is not a coincidence i don't call it that statement blew up and rendered impossible of very important meeting at the white house thereby giving a strong blow to the opportunity of achieving peace between kosovo and serbia on monday he will face questions from prosecutors in the hague the now the e.u.
has wrestled back control of mediation efforts the e.u. and we could be repeating it all the time is very committed to continue our engagement as a facilitator of of the dialogue between great and prishtina but we are not the ones who are dictating who are our interlocutors on thursday the bloc who mediate the 1st high level meeting between the 2 sides since november 28th and perhaps make progress on one of europe's most intractable disputes. sudan's passed a law which now makes female genital mutilation a crime the u.n. says nearly 9 out of every 10 girls in the country for victim to what's known as f.p.m. or genital cutting people who perform the operation now face up to 3 years in prison and a fine justice ministry says the practice undermines the dignity of women. south korea's former president park geun hye has had a 32 year prison sentence for corruption reduced by 10 years the 1st female

white supremacists have always used extreme music whether that be hardcore punk or in this case black metal as a recruitment opportunity for them social media has completely changed the way in which people come into contact with far right use and far right materials in this case far right music. facebook's algorithm tailors your search results to your interests if you land on pages that contain anti semitic imagery nazi symbols or black face then facebook will direct you to more pages with similar content. following the black lives matter protests in the united states some of the biggest brands in the world have begun boycotting the site urging it to crack down hard on hate speech. in response to our investigation facebook told al-jazeera unfortunately 0 tolerance doesn't mean 0 incidents and added we have removed 3
