hearing going on against among one joe but he said that canada would not interfere in the independent judicial process against the way executive saying that that needed to take place on its own and that he would not get involved in it maybe trying to show the different approach that he is taking than what people here in canada are accusing the chinese government of doing so a lot of uncertainty going forward with both the cases against the chinese and the case the extradition case against the chinese way executive more to be seen here indeed and it's a story we'll continue watching very closely indeed david meserve our 4th in calgary calgary all right thank you dave. now strangely as intelligence agencies believe the country is facing unprecedented cyber attacks from an unnamed government prime minister scott morrison wouldn't be drawn on whether they're part of a straight is increasingly hostile dispute with china and beijing has denied being

people's posts no information it's a form of ice maciek warfare. information wolf and the. scouts ran the usual declarations of hostilities in the a dedication of who's doing the attack and a lot of it is about denials cyber attacks but the government says they are increasing in frequency and scale it won't say which state it believes was behind the attack but it comes at a time of heightened tensions between its trailer and beijing. since is generally a cold for an independent inquiry into the current of ours pandemic china has imposed tariffs on bali hole to be thin imports and also warns chinese students against studying in a stroller. well the government has been careful not to point the finger at beijing publicly it's the country most widely speculated by intelligence experts to be behind the cyber attack and one of the few states along with russia iran and north
korea which would be capable of carrying out such an attack but whoever is to blame the government is urging businesses to strengthen their technical defenses as the attacks increase nicola gage 0 camera. now the u.s. is marking the end of slavery a day known as juneteenth and it's taken on added significance this year with the recent protests against racism and police brutality you're watching live pictures now of some gatherings that are taking place in harlem new york as part of the observance of juneteenth today on june the 1865 an order was issued to free thousands of slaves in the state of texas that slavery had already been abolished for more than 2 years but there weren't enough soldiers to enforce the new law and so many whites in the confederate south kept the news from there and now there are growing calls in the u.s. to make juneteenth a national holiday well let's not bring in cable as at
a protest in new york for us as we've been saying this is a day usually mounted by african-americans but this to it does seem to be being observed by an unprecedented number of americans is just a turning point for the country. it really is so without a doubt june was always celebrated here in the united states primarily by the african-american community by others as well but this year it has taken on added significance because the plaque lives. matter movement that is swept over the united states and also the police reform those calls for police reform are being rope right brought right to the steps are being employed people headquarters that's where we're at right now we're at this protest is taking place and they just tell it in 8 minutes the moment of silence that was new dedication today we have made it
so that george floyd our lady of the ground in minneapolis with the police officer with his knee on his neck before he tragically passed away now is chanting no peace no p.c. again this is right outside of the n.y.p.d. police headquarters p.d. is going through some made. reforms. governor and the mayor have both called for reforms of the n.y.p.d. many of the protesters calling for as much as one bill with the $8000000000.00 annual budget for n.y.p.d. to be dedicated to social projects because of this search but really what you're seeing here is just one more than all the different protest vigils and gatherings that are scheduled new york city and the surrounding metropolitan area over the course of this you know what you're. calling all these developments

nigerian military says it's killed several high ranking boko haram datas in a series of airstrikes on a village in the northeast the settlement was reportedly being used as a training ground to fight his. more from a breach or. the strikes were carried out over the course of 2 days after days of surveillance according to the general military and they were sure that some of them leaders of boko haram fighters who were there at the compound when it was struck as well as several fighters were also using the surroundings training ground the community or the villages on the fringes of the somebody so for us to know what's interesting by the way this information was released by the nigerian military on the day the nigerian president met with all heads of security agencies from the army navy air force the police and the intelligence agencies where he was quoted as
saying he was not happy with the way the security operations in the country were going to remember the not only the bottom fight in the northeast of the country but also the banditry attacks in the northwest of the country where in the last 2 months hundreds of people have been killed now the military said they were sure that they have gotten very value very high value target as they put it in that compound and that the information they got after the attacks were completely completed was that several of such leaders have been killed. former allies in yemen's war battle to control an island off the horn of africa southern separatists have stormed the security department building in the city of how do you on the island of so-called the southern transitional council is backed by the united arab emirates and is fighting government forces supported by saudi arabia now the s.t.c. had originally supported the saudi u.a.e.
coalition against the rebels but now wants to break away from northern yemen yemeni minister has called on the coalition to end the fighting and restore order on the island where earlier i spoke to catherine checked and she is the director of the yemen unit at the next century foundation that's a think tank that operates in conflict zones and she says the resurgence in fighting is possibly because of turkey is growing involvement in yemen it was a real fear that you would try to increase once you miss out on problems of yemen and try to open up you know and use one i've been through if you will and i think that the u.a.e. reacted to you know and you see what is happening now in secret trials and we need to remember about i suppose the u.a.e. is concerned the whole intervention in yemen anyway i was always about having control of that which you raise in yemen so in the south and making sure that for example secret how would not fool we've been someone else's jurisdiction of spies they are concerned that it was a matter of. national security so i think the fact now that we see around
not believe humans it's a very tall tale sign to me that the reason a lot of anxiety like the animosity toward stewart and that potentially we seeing new crocs appearing in terms of the creation and very kind of. the chances that underpins these very very tentative lines. well a u.n. funding crisis means the last of 3 aid shipments has now arrived in yemen more than 40 tons of medical equipment including ventilators and testing kits have been flown in to help the country battle the coronavirus earlier this month a u.n. appeal fell $1000000000.00 short of what was needed forcing 75 percent of its programs to be cut in yemen now demonstrators are gathering in mali's capital for the 2nd time this month increasing pressure on president abraham to back acacia to
resign the protests and by mco are being encouraged by opposition to it and. cages opponents accuse him of corruption and of failing to contain violent groups the president has promised to hold talks to establish a unity government with nicholas hackers following the developments from senegal capital dhaka he says the unrest is being felt across the region. the west african body echo was sent a high delegation. to the capital bamako to try to mediate what seems to be intensifying conflict part of this delegation we have the foreign minister of nigeria i rico and the air and the head the commission head of echo was to try to find some sort of agreement between the 2 parties because the protest the protestors are gaining momentum now there's less people than last week partly because people couldn't afford to come to the capital bamako from the countryside and because of the security situation but still we have thousands of people on the
streets of moscow protesting asking for president. to once again resign so it seems that the concessions that the president had made on tuesday raising the salaries of teachers and. suggesting that he would dissolve the newly elected national assembly in the constitutional court calling for a national unity government while all of that was not enough to quell the crowd of protesters and in the absence of. who is the main opposition leader who's currently has been abducted a few months ago during the parliamentary elections in the absence of stimulus he said well it's the influential leader mahmoud who's leading the charge against kate so following this high level mediation by the west african body he's conceded that he's willing to hold talks with as long as he fulfilled his promises.
