2:03 am
planning on using light mapping technology to provide an artificial barrier blocking these icons from the view of worshippers during prayer hours so the mosque will still be open for tourism but also during prayer hours for worshipers that want to come here as well many turkish officials see the decision to turn. back into a mosque a mystic issue but there has been a lot of. international criticism the united states views a change in the status of the hagia sophia as diminishing the legacy of this remarkable building and its own supposed to been a decent rare in the modern world to serve humanity as a much needed bridge between those of differing faith traditions and cultures you know sco deeply regrets the decision of the turkish will so it tastes made without prior discussion and calls for the universal thing more world heritage to be preserved the ruling by the turkish council of states to overturn what
2:04 am
a modern take decisions and present decision to place the monument under the management of the religious affairs presidency is regrettable the decision which came as a result of the political will of president other one. is the unique value and ecumenical nature of the monument search presidential spokesman it rhymes tones giving it sure and that there is going to try to are to make sure that the religious identity and the historical significance of this beautiful minute it is preserved all of our major mosques such as the blue mosque for t.v. and silly money in mosques they are open to both visitors and washers opening up the fia to worship doesn't keep local or foreign tourists from visiting the site so a loss from the world's heritage is not in question. is actually a very old structure dating back to the 6th century when the emperor justinian. help construct this very important character it's served that the church for the
2:05 am
record is not a. good empire and it's actually a very important symbol to the greek orthodox religion. consider what the vatican is the roman catholics the i.s.o. the greek orthodox. when we look at the reactions coming domestic we regarding the decision to revert by sophia back into a mosque we see members of the ruling party very very happy receiving tweets from the turkish president we've seen tweets from the finance minister the president's communications director as well expressing pleasure we've seen the opposition take
2:06 am
a very wide stance many positive reactions coming out of the muslim world they are celebrating this decision that. is once again open for a ship with a great can bask to tell a story that. will reaganite tensions between with. and screen belong to the initiative what we are learning that civilization it was an initiative that was started about 10 or 15 years ago which aired as objective. of the one flicks we can it be. i don't think it has been successful but it is a shame that. it new should be taking such a measure to have pensions between. me and the world
2:07 am
and this is something that i think we're going to impeach europe but the rebels had mention in his reaction. that possibly be. a yes or becoming a monster. now aside from the impact on health and leaving millions to the coronavirus is now threatening to leave people hungry and you walk a new report by oxfam does warn 19 is triggering a food crisis that could potentially double the number who die from hunger. scott head of humanitarian policy for ox oxfam international says it's even affecting well developed countries. what's really worrying in this report is we're seeing new essentials of hunger developing in an otherwise middle income in developed countries some of the countries we do look at and the reports include india south africa brazil these countries where there are recently developed economies and yet
2:08 am
the impact that we're seeing from coronavirus is going to have dire consequences on the most vulnerable people in those societies and say going to happen i mean there's this poor people in every country and the same impacts are going to slow down so what we're seeing from coronavirus is that both it makes its more sort of vulnerable for poor people but it also makes them more vulnerable to the economic side as well and that's going to be across the world 8 of the biggest food and drink manufacturers have paid out of the $18000000000.00 to their shareholders assia now looking back to what we were speaking about humanitarian aid the global humanitarian appeal is just over $7000000000.00 so clearly there's something wrong in all sorts of the money is flowing to the big companies and it's really not getting down to the people that need it. well the world food program does the estimate the number suffering from crisis level hunger will double by the end of the year reaching 270000000 people and oxfam says that 12000 a day could die from starvation if nothing is done where the worst hit countries
2:09 am
are already deemed unstable before the pandemic nations such as yemen or afghanistan where many citizens had already been suffering from hunger for years and will now see the numbers at risk rise and some middle income and developed countries things such as brazil and india are also on the danger list head of humanitarian policy for oxfam international matthew trust scott insists there are measures to minimize coverts effect on hunger but governments need to act fast. for the time being there are 3 things we need to do so firstly we urgently need to increase humanitarian aid at the moment the united nations has put out an appeal for about $7000000000.00 and that's only been 24 percent funded so we're not getting nearly enough money for the humanitarian aid that we meet at the 2nd thing that we can do is looking into issues like canceling debt trillion dollars for those countries to be using to help those people and that can pay for things like food they can pay for social security social protection they can pay for things like health so sharing up the debt could make a huge difference and that's just
2:10 am
a matter of wealthy nations really giving up some of the debt owed to them by other countries and the 3rd thing that we need to do and in and this is a long term change is we need to change our food system works we need to build a more fair more robust a more equal food system food system that's a bill that's able to deal with climate change that's able to respond to shocks this able to be sustainable and to support that the small scale farmers and small producers rather than just putting money into big companies if a 2nd rate does come we know the people who are going to be the most horrible for that and if there are restrictions put in place by governments to take that to address that 2nd wave those restrictions have to be asked to be able to cater to the needs of the poorest people so we need to make sure that the food systems are there. to get where it's needed to make sure that people have the resources to buy that shoot. now almost 2 months after the rise of the black lives matter movement sparked by the killing of george floyd in the u.s. the impact is still being felt around the world in the german capital for example
2:11 am
moves are 100 way to rename a metro station which has been deemed to be racist but an alternative suggested by transport authorities is proving to be no less controversial peter oliver explains . the killing of george floyd by us police and the rise of the black light amounts of movement around the world led to a reckoning from monuments to racism colonialism and slavery. is also wrangling with the names of it strasser plots an alleyway here in the very heart of the german capital is more in strasser more or more in english is seen as
2:12 am
a derogatory term for people from north africa while berlin city authorities say it may take a while to change the street name the capitals probably transport provider want to change to the underground stations name quick sharp new transport maps are going to be issued by the end of this year out of understanding and respect to the occasionally controversial debate about the street name the deviancy has now decided not to use it any longer as the name of the underground station the problem is that the name that they going to replace it with is going to strasser which runs nearby the station now this is where things start to get complicated the russian born 19th century composer. is regarded as one of the greats of classical music he spent his final days in berlin and as with a street named after him in the german capital the issues arise when you look at
2:13 am
the motifs that appear in his work through modernize the opera prince comiskey employees deeply anti semitic things the group is anti semitic even if anti semitism was prevalent and widely accepted at the time. i don't necessarily think we should get rid of the names of streets all station named after people like but renaming the station after him nowadays in berlin is quite a different matter there are all those who oppose the view of lincoln as an anti semite and say his work on beliefs being misrepresented. blaming going for anti-semitism is a bit of stretch really you have to understand the context you have to understand history whereas glencoe was not interested in it he had jewish friends and kept in touch with many famous artists of jewish origin so for him it's nice that it was not important this isn't the only part of the lynnwood names are an issue in the vetting district there is enough for a kid quarter where peter. and plots are named
2:14 am
after the germans who for the colonialism the city did say that some streets would be renamed in $28.00 but they are still here in stiglitz lindorff there is hidden didn't. named after the victor in the battle of town and good world war one who later went on to be a figurehead for a really nazis and appointed hitler as chancellor. of friedrich schenkel who also has a square named after him in the city was a colossus of neo classical and neo gothic architecture he designed the brandenburg gate but also the eigen cross the award now so closely associated with germany's period of nazi rule politicians from the green party have welcomed the move to rename the station but have said that k n e to be taken over what it will be called in the future it is welcome that the b.g. has taken during naming of the morning star sounder ground station into
2:15 am
consideration has to actions are not appropriate in such matters there's been an underground station here for 112 years and whatever the name chain. just to it will be the 4th incarnation of this particular stop until racism campaign is want to see the street station named after. the 1st black man to be enrolled in a pressure university peter all of our. political observers see my sniff is that the current trend could have dangerous consequences for huge change generation . it could go very far because that's one of the more harmless nates really there's there's lots of names of generals there were like you know were even like involved with the colonial war. there is the whole area of religion called a few cars that fit the no means like the african quarter its. street names are
2:16 am
named after polices its former us can call it nice to see that's not right you could look at bismarck saying y'all sort of did this in this and said. anybody that would like to be judged today by the standards that are going to exist in 100 years from now but we will tell you what standards 100 years from now are going to be but we're going to judge you by what you agree to that i don't think anybody would like me and you reached everything you've basically destroy people's sense is truly and their roots it's rubble of their roots and their basis of where they stand in the world. now the u.k. government is allowing british citizens to travel to 59 countries without having to quarantine upon return it does come as life has been slowly returning to normal in the u.k. in the past few weeks many bars and restaurants and public spaces gradually reacting
2:17 am
. as of this weekend artists musicians and dancers can stop performing live outside to outdoor audiences will also have the resumption of recreational sport followed later by the reopening about gyms swimming pools and leisure centers however despite the us this positive attitudes towards easing coronavirus measures and reopening the borders the u.k. does have one of the highest death rates in the world followed by spain italy and the us and also france and while the government's announcement will allow british tourists to visit many european countries it does seem they may not get the warmest of welcomes recent poll does reveal that many europeans are not thrilled at the prospect of taking in british travellers with that be self isolating in fact in many european countries the majority are completely opposed to the idea. or your brains will be broken or it is in our nature to work on people and they
2:18 am
would also give us a big hand you can only in my opinion alter is have come to italy will be well received i think they will be regarded somewhat with suspicion. first of all we need to make sure that they do not have the virus that they have had to test until ok and then then they have the right to enjoy themselves. i think it's better if everybody stays at home not just the british right now everybody should stay home i think that's the most reasonable course. they need to be checked but i don't see any reason to stop them from coming they're still part of europe and now. long as they respect social distancing the wording of favors the development of tourism . now while restrictions are slowly lifted in the u.k. concern does remain of a potential 2nd wave many fear too that a shortage of personal protective equipment might once again be an issue shaddy and
2:19 am
which daschle reports. as a u.k. are knocks the lock down it seems many are bracing for a 2nd wave of the corona virus but also a 2nd wave of a shortage of people he is not new news there was throughout the entire pandemic and it just stopped on the frontline really struggle to get hold of that protective gear to adequately safeguard against the virus for months on and it seems like the lockdown lessons haven't been over the department says it is committed to building up the peace talks to meet longer term demand we are not convinced that it is treating the matter with sufficient urgency or that the government has reported enough the government is adamant that the stock of p.p. has never run out on a national level but with demand increased by 20000 percent those on the front line would beg to differ in fact 50 percent of and it starts so there was not enough p.p. and although data on its usage is hard to get hold of a survey of nurses and carers found that nearly 90 percent worried about catching the virus at work while the government stresses that their main challenge it faced
2:20 am
was getting the right people to the right place at the right time initially out of date masks were issued and then the statement was made that actually we have tested them tested them and these masks are ok having said that in june they now say we need to withdraw this mask so there's a lot of luck so for. and you need to answer this but rather than to say the market has now been resolved with them on spiralling to u.k. hard to look further afield and source people on international markets but that came with its own set of problems a plane from turkey landed at the peak of the pandemic in april carrying about 400000 much needed p.-p. counts upon arrival it emerged at the equipment didn't meet british safety standards in a very embarrassing blunder for the government though the u.k. is able to produce a fair share of its own people there's no imminent guarantee that it won't need to source from abroad again with experts in the field saying that the quality is the
2:21 am
key component of effectiveness in protecting against the virus perhaps the government should try before you buy they've been dealing with the shortages by revising their counting tactics why not double the numbers instead of counting each pair of gloves as one why not count each club individually and hey presto you've doubled your stock without even lifting a finger this catalogue of errors certainly weren't an inquiry surely to get it right the 2nd time around if there's a 2nd time around that is but in line with most of the government's coronavirus responses they say it's too soon i didn't consider the moment. is a good use of official talking earlier this week the chancellor announced a 15000000000 pounds boost to p.p. but will it be a case of too little too late especially as some of those in government say we're in a hole for through this pandemic charge edwards daschle artsy london. still to come from the prison sentence for his. lying to congress during the russian
2:22 am
collusion probe will have a look at the story of the. i know to no crow. no shots no. traction just a belt. you know well it's true you know 1st. point your thirst for. a young people for a while you know it's up to them to make it in their own image and on the money else and jan see i'm
2:23 am
a boomer you know i already had. 40 or 50 year experience in the united states post world war 2 coast land a. stock market never had a work day in my life because of that and you know so it's up to them to decide what's great make it great and good luck with. trump is facing a backlash at the moment after granting clemency to his former aide roger stone it comes hours after the appeals court denied to delay the start of stone's 40 month sentence which he was given for lying to congress chewing the russia collusion
2:24 am
probe. has more on the story. the decision from the white house comes just 4 days before roger stone was expected to present himself at a federal prison and start serving his sentence of 40 months in prison after being convicted of obstruction of justice now the white house presented a lengthy report describing roger stone as essentially a political operative who briefly worked with the trump campaign in 2016 and became a victim of the russian collusion hoax the white house to question the partiality of the decision and sentence which roger stone faced mr stone mr large by the same prosecutors from the murder investigation to us with finding evidence of collusion with russia because no such evidence exists however they could not charge him for any collusion related crime instead they charged him for his conduct during their investigation the simple fact is that if the special counsel had not been pursuing an absolutely baseless investigation mr stone would not be facing time in prison
2:25 am
now according to the white house report bob mahler's prosecutors charged roger stone simply with process crimes that were quote soley from their own improper investigation and the white house went on to say that the prosecutors quote took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest they tipped off c.n.n. allowing his arrest to be filmed on live television now at this point we've got democrats speaking up and saying that donald trump is essentially abusing the rule of law and legal processes in the united states through this act trump is saying if you lie for me if you cover up for me if you obstruct for me i will protect you another tragic day for american democracy the interim president of the rule of law and made them more clear for democracy he truly is in the mood to corrupt president in history richard nixon at the height of watergate never pardoned or can. the
2:26 am
sentences of any of the people involved in watergate i have no doubt donald trump is going to pardon himself he is going to pardon evolved a trump he is going to pardon jared questionnaire the charges on which roger stone was convicted flowed from the special counsel robert muller investigation into allegations that trump colluded with russia during which $116.00 elections now no evidence of trump russia collusion was ever discovered but a number of individuals associated with the trump campaign which charged with process crimes as well as unrelated charges now roger stone admitted that during the 2016 elections he did indeed promote the wiki leaks emails emails that were provided to wiki leaks from clinton campaign manager john podesta however he says he had no prior knowledge of any e-mails that would you know it was going to publish and he certainly was not involved in any hacking or data dumping or
2:27 am
anything to that effect. and then that scientists are calling for an investigation into the presence of the corona virus in sewage that after traces of code were found in samples in barcelona dating back before december last year the scientists at the university barcelona found a virus in a sample of sewage water collected in march the study if they to confirm suggest the virus didn't originate in china but instead was dormant across the world and only emerged in december the virus was 1st found in water samples in spain from january this year predating the 1st official case of covered $9000.00 in the country which was the 25th of february dr thomas jefferson from oxford university believes that we should be focusing on identifying all ways of transmission. if so strictly true was so widespread believed to be that we knew or most of all of since march 2090 why is it all of
