attorney william barr faces questions of the trumpet ministrations response to recent anti racism protests. that welcome to the program spanish prime minister pedro sanchez has reacted with outrage after the u.k. and germany warned their citizens to think twice before travelling to spain in the coming weeks because of an increase in coronavirus cases tourism accounts for a little over 12 percent of spain's g.d.p. and is seen as crucial to rebuilding its economy after months of lock down restrictions but the u.k. is concerned that europe is entering a 2nd wave in the pandemic it's warned citizens against all but essential travel to spain and imposed a 2 week quarantine on their return a move which could cost spain's tourism sector $11700000000.00 in lost revenue
10:02 pm
the german government meanwhile has also warned against travel to 3 regions in spain but germany is also facing its own rise in infections with new case. as doubling on tuesday to 633 spain's prime minister pedro sanchez is calling for exemptions in regions where the infection rate is low or some of the time of the we are at this moment talking to the british authorities to try to make them reconsider a measure that in our view is unsuitable particularly if we keep the epidemiological data of the spanish territory and in particular certain tourist destinations like for example the canary in the balearic islands the villain's here and dilutes in regions which i insist have a total accumulated level of virus that is lower than what's being registered in the u.k. in epidemiological terms it is safer to be in these regions than in the u.k. prime minister speaking there will mark the harrell is following the reaction one of the worst hit areas barcelona these decision has
10:03 pm
a huge impact in the tourism sector that represents a 1212 percent of the spanish economy the situation is quite critical we see here in barcelona where we are right now the beaches are really empty bars there are no queues to to to visit like the the cathedral in the middle of the of the city no cute at all the words we were talking to the people at the cathedral saying that an ordinary day you were just like 660 people 660 this is why last year the same dates we are they will have $1000.00 so the situation is quite critical we know that the government is negotiation and pushing very hard especially to brand the idea that spain is a save the estimation that we've got the corner of ours under control that these are only isolated branches or as isolated clusters that are completely under control as we heard last night from prime minister presented in this town is television interview he insisted that spain is a safe destination all the government is aligned in this in this in this sense and
10:04 pm
saying that this being here is safer than being for example in the queue in the u.k. and france. or germany which as we mentioned is itself dealing with a steady rise in cases also wants to make virus tests mandatory for travelers returning from high risk areas dominic kane has more from berlin. for much of the last few days the concern in germany at a federal level but also amongst the individual states that make up this republic has been the fear of a 2nd wave of corona virus that's why the federal health minister announced earlier in the week that as of next week that all passengers returning from high risk areas to german airports will have to be tested for coronavirus now the german government saying that it doesn't want its citizens and people who are resident in this country to travel to 3 specific areas of spain hour ago and got them one year and
10:05 pm
another adult doesn't want its citizens residents to travel there because of the risk that the government perceives that exists there right now and as i say the fear here is that people will be unwittingly bringing back coronavirus into this country and perhaps spawning a 2nd wave of corona virus infections here on the scientific side remember the science is something that the government says it has always been following the science well the man who regulates the agency that is collating data the man who leads it from the robert cock institute has some troubling thoughts for the german population to news conference earlier this is called one of your latest results show that people consider the coronavirus to be a low risk them before also the acceptance of measures such as social distancing has decreased at this point i would once again like to be very clear we ourselves are largely responsible for determining how the disease will develop in germany please help yourselves all of you continue to respect the rules and then finally
10:06 pm
there's the political perspective that informs all of this leading conservative politicians of the federal level and specifically in bavaria are looking at what's happening and they are worried about the possibility of a repeat of what happened earlier in the pandemic in other words certainly in bavaria the prime minister there mark is that. he looks the situation that happened in austria where certain places became super spreading venue's here is very worried that that might happen again later during the course of this pandemic trying to stop them that's why he says he wants corona virus testing to take place very soon at airports train stations and at motorway areas that border his state and austria question will be what the federal government will do having heard from mr. ok so that's the situation in europe let's go to latin america now chile is beginning to ease coronavirus restrictions after months of strict locked down rules some regions
10:07 pm
in the capital santiago are allowing residents to leave their homes without police permission and gather in small groups medical officials say the number of new cases have continued to fall over successive days but the region still remains the worst affected by the pandemic well let's go now to our latin america to see a new and she joins us from santiago good to see you chillin now easing it's locked down somewhat how is this being rolled out. well that's a very complicated question 1st of all the 7 minutes apologies in santiago where the if you can. find it measures are being eased you can see a lot of people walking around here none of them have to ask permission to do that but the rest of the capital remains under lockdown and in this area people are being able to open their shops people go to work 2 restaurants are still closed and
10:08 pm
just detection gyms but other places are opening up and the problem is that the people who work in these shops come from other parts of the city where there is still a total lockdown so unless people are very very obedient which they have not been it's not going to work now here you can see that the municipality has. given us a pallet he has written or. rather. put drawings all over the footpath see it to keep people from to the left and to the right so that they don't buying into each other to order to keep social distancing here on the corner they have these hexagons to where people are supposed to stand to stay as far apart from each other as possible before crossing the street but right now there's no one here but we've been here all day long and we've been watching a lot of people just ignoring all of these signs all together and the quote the problem is after speaking to a very well known. every day meola just she says that the numbers simply do not add
10:09 pm
up the world health organization says that the infection rate in chile while it has gone down has not gone down nearly far enough to prevent another outbreak and we're still remember in the 1st wave like europe. and of course we'll see a big cut of ties into one of the issues that's been the hardest but that i can bet is to have exact numbers to understand just how much any one country has been impacted by cope with 19 and now in neighboring peru we're learning that one in 4 people in the capital may actually be infected with covert 19 at least that's what experts think. well you don't it's one in one in 4 has been infected in lima but if there's even a worse statistic that's just come out the room now is the very highest death rate for a 1000000 inhabitants of all of latin america chile is 2nd and brazil is a distant 3rd even though brazil has the highest number of infections and deaths it has a much much larger population so peru is in
10:10 pm
a lot of trouble right now the hospitals are overflowing with people who are infected so are the cemeteries the government has had to admit that the death toll is much much higher than what it originally said it was and people are asking for answers the problem is that 70 percent of the population works in the informal sector and they have not been a bang the. the lockdown measures when they were actually in force which they no longer are so it's very very complicated and it's not certain at all how they're going to get those numbers down any time in the near future cinnamon with the latest there from santiago in chile c.s. thank you. malaysia's former prime minister najib razak has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after being found guilty of corruption he will go straight to jail though and says he is appealing for and slowly reports. guilty

10:21 pm
a congress that the protestors were peaceful and that's what the most majority of people have said and the response was excessive when did you 1st learn that the president planned to walk through the park to go to st john's church 1st i'd like to respond to achieve it would you please answer my question my time is limited i learned. some time in the afternoon that president might come out of the white house and then later in the afternoon and i heard the church so it was actually necessary the park be cleared for his for his that's that had nothing to do with that the plan to move mr mr atlanta mineral that it will remember is very this a park be cleared and it was done and you said get it done. let's go after alan fischer who's on capitol hill for us alan definitely a heated exchange there what else as the attorney general at rampart concerned. well this is covered a lot of growing buzz because this is the 1st time william barr has appeared before
10:22 pm
a house oversight committee since he was appointed and since the democrats took control of the house it was covered a great deal of in arrears including whether or not donald trump is right when he expresses concern that the election could be rigged william barr said that he had new evidence to suggest that would be the case there was another contentious exchange when one congresswoman suggested that william barr treats protesters differently that went on and 2nd amendment protesters went to the state house in detroit threatening to lynch the governor there because she wanted to bring forward a mask legislation to make sure that everyone more masks than there was no move there by the federal government bill barr made. the distinction that that was for the state to deal with what happened in washington was for him to deal with there has been exchanges too about the fact that there are federal officers currently guarding the courthouse in portland and although
10:23 pm
a number of democrats have raised the issue of a rest being made with no legal justification bill barr says it's important that they're there and without them then that would have the courthouse would have gone down so you can see that the democrats are setting william bar up because they believe that what he is doing is essentially providing food for donald trump and his reelection campaign where's the republicans have been very defensive of william barr saying he's taking decisions that have managed to be politicized this state department 2 examples of that michael flynn and roger stone 2 very close associates of donald trump who either had their sentence commuted or the charges dropped. bill barr said look we did what anyone would do we took the politics out of it because the friends of donald trump should be treated no differently he shouldn't been punished more so this is covering a lot of groaned and it's really just a preview of the growing that will be covered as we run up to the election come
