11:03 am
government. minnesota's governor says he wants justice and he's launched a discrimination probe into the minneapolis police department to get the investigation will review in p.d.f. policies procedures and practices over the last 10 years to determine if the department is utilized to semi practices towards people of color the governor says he wants the protestors to know their heard what we keep hearing from protesters on the street is that they don't trust the police they want the police to stop discriminating against african-americans and even black professionals tell us what happened to george floyd here what happens if any one of them a need to change the system in the more recent arliss say they experienced discrimination on a daily basis but they worry most about their children encountering police i worry a lot. they're young adults. they're trying to stay positive and be productive in their everyday life. law abiding citizens
11:04 am
but unfortunately we. can't change your complection or you're in the city. you don't always get an opportunity it's a theme heard over and over at the site known as the george floyd memorial they come not just for george floor but for those who might come next. john hendren al-jazeera minneapolis and in america's capital protests have been much calmer he has more from washington d.c. . the big difference for tuesday's protests outside the white house was the construction of this 8 foot fence and it really has had a calming influence it has to be said on the nature of the protests because it's almost as if they are to combat troops effectively who are lined up against the protesters being kept at a safe distance from us there's a lot of the provocations that he was saying on previous days where every now and
11:05 am
then they would lash out without warning with pepper spray flash bang grenades and so on and today always so every now that arrives at the extra half an hour before the curfew they did come forward and pepper spray through the fence problem unless they do come forward every now and then but i tried to stay stay where they are do nothing and retreat once more that's led to the ability of the protesters to peacefully protest without provocation the provocation or seen over previous evenings it there is that sense that perhaps librium has been found and now having how the photo opportunity of the day before a certain number of protesters will be allowed to peacefully protest have a vigil calling for justice following the death of george floyd there's one other interesting thing here that this is the toilet. that was graffiti we had to interview from august by the defense secretary and he was also why did you go to st john's church which is just opposite us actually we take a look at why did you go to why did you accompany donald trump and he said oh i
11:06 am
didn't know we were going to i just said i was going to inspect the toilet. it's interesting to see the defense secretary distance himself the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff who is in his combat fatigues also just from the want to sit on sky which is so controversial in the outside world at least in the white house i think it was a huge public relations to him all the success in addition this time last night here in d.c. we were seeing military helicopters blackhawk helicopters buzz protesters flying just above the rooftops trying to scare away protesters a classic counter and. you see tactic now i've been told that the you see the national guard because bombing officers call for inquiries or distance loose or also with of tactics being used or more among very large things are much go much used owners well more now on what the us defense secretary has been saying about trump's visit to st john's church in an interview with the american news network n.b.c. mark aspers said he expected to inspect the damage church and talk to the troops as
11:07 am
were also says he had no idea protesters were forcefully cleared from the park for trying to make his way to the church. by full photos with a bible in hand at the damaged building now one of the more striking protests images from the past few hours was a sight of thousands of people marching onto a busy road in the city of portland in oregon they lay face down on burnside bridge with their hands behind their backs for 9 minutes in remembrance of floyd in new york city police began making arrests soon after he came into effect thousands of people pouring onto the city's streets in the early evening man bill de blasio has refused to bring in the national guard saying it will only worsen the tensions in los angeles has been a standoff between police and protesters. the
11:08 am
demonstrators sat on the ground and refused to move despite violating the city's curfew many have been arrested al-jazeera is rob reynolds is in the sanjay this where the overnight curfew is still in place. the curfew here in los angeles has been in effect for several hours and at this location there are a number perhaps a 100 or more protesters who have now been detained by los angeles police if i'll step out of the way and you can see that people are waiting in line some are seated each one is sort of being guarded by a police officer they are. waiting to be transported to jail where they will be charged with a misdemeanor offense breaking curfew it's not a serious offense but it is something that is useful from the perspective of the police in order to clear people off the streets a few moments ago people here were chanting they were chanting black lives matter
11:09 am
here they were chanting say is name george floyd they were chanting no justice no peace and they were speaking obviously making a political statement so you have here the determination of the police department on the one hand to maintain order clear the streets enforce the curfew and on the other hand the equally strong determination of these protesters to make their statement make their political statement by deliberately breaking the law in an act of civil disobedience. for the protest movement in the u.s. has seen solidarity online a montage of black images have been posted on social media sites on the hashtag blackout the concepts spread from the new sic industry with some major companies pledging to suspend business and people in its are and are also showing solidarity

with the black lies matter movement and 10 of 800 showed up at the u.s. embassies branch office some said they wanted to end racial discrimination in their own country alice to have joined in the. meant as well and have drawn attention to what they say is the aggression of israeli forces protesters in the occupied west bank gathered outside the church of the nativities lighting candles for george floyd and iyad out how to act on a stick and artistic palestinian man who was killed by israeli police last saturday . we came to show our alliance with the oppressed in the world against injustice against the u.s. administration that oppresses black people against the israeli occupation that oppresses the palestinian people now and to other world news a in any rainy and scientists who was released from a u.s. prison has arrived home. he was acquitted of charges of stealing state secrets in november but he was held under immigration custody over an expired visa the u.s. and iran have denied his spot of

a prisoner swap let's get the latest with say invest in tehran for a sane and long road home for us. that's correct ali this gentleman was detained and has been in u.s. custody since 2016 is trying to get in 2018 he was found innocent of wire fraud he's a fraud as well as stealing state secrets just last month and since last month there's been a lot of discussion and debate about how to get him back to iran iran has been calling for his release criticizing the american government for not doing enough to protect him from being infected by the coronavirus in their custody in the custody of immigration and customs enforcement agents but the americans have said that iran has been slow rolling that the processes that need to be taken care of to return this gentleman back to his home they said that they question the legitimacy of citizenship that we americans said that they had to shoot him a valid passport for travel several flights that were booked by the americans had

11:13 am
a great deal of exchange of ideas and thoughts there was some work being done by a science university here during the coronavirus pandemic to try to come up with a breathing machine and they were getting some support from universities in the united states so there is that collegial atmosphere between academics certainly easy to do want to social scientists friends but when it comes to nuclear sciences or material science or biological sciences we've seen examples of how they can become sort of playing cards in this political game between the united states and iran and get examples of that in 2019 to the sort of money visiting scholar in minnesota it was released and returned to iraq he was arrested in 2018 is a professor of biological sciences he was on his way to the united states to do this install arrested upon arrival he was exchanged for a chinese american academic who was being held in iran on accusations of espionage a nuclear scientist who disappeared in 2009 in mecca to return to iran in 2010 she
