7:09 pm
we will teach this government a lesson not only did both women live in the same state but they were also both from the daleks community marginalized being at the bottom of india's deeply entrenched cost system despite laws protecting what was formerly known as the untouchables they face daily discrimination for generations so those so-called main dimensions ideas regards those such as violence against a custom woman as a serious issue but when it happens to or a low cost woman they are trying to predict their past just in the past right now not coming out as you would want for an upper class woman for instance in the us her head was used she was brutalized she was in the hospital but she was not given to build proper medical care the issue of sexual violence against women has been under the spotlight in india since the 2012 gang rape and murder of a woman in delhi which led to huge nationwide protests and changes to the country's great pools but this time protesters say it's hasn't been enough to protect these 2

outrage across the country. more than 80 people have been arrested in hong kong after defying a ban on protests the arrests came during china's national day holiday which marks the founding of the people's republic 71 years ago aaron brown has for. under the shadow of covert 19 and deepening concerns over a new security law this was a subdued national day for many people here but at a ceremony attended by hong kong's political elite the territories leader kerry lamb said the legislation had brought stability or hey sam like it over the past 3 months the plain truth is and it is obvious to see that stability has been restored to society while national security has been safeguarded and our people can continue to enjoy their basic rights and freedoms in accordance with the law. some not on the guest list try to stage
7:16 pm
a demonstration outside the venue. a protest that was quickly extinguished by police. on a day when they were braced for trouble riot officers sealed off a busy shopping area ready to act quickly to stamp out any signs of unrest they'd earlier denied permission for a march citing covert 19 and the potential for violence you cannot have well organized today but i think most of the hong kong people will come at this with to express their anger. there were many arrests taking to more than 10000 the number of people detained in protests since last june the combined effect of the new security law plus social distancing measures means we've seen no repeat of the mass protests of a year ago conventional demonstrating in hong kong is now effectively over with the movement behind the protests continues so people have had to become more creative
7:17 pm
in how they protest like displaying the newspaper most critical of the government there was some overt resistance with heckling. and chanting of pro independence slogans. in the chinese capital beijing the mood was very different not a mosque in sight at a ceremony in tiananmen square a mask of the ring that would be hard to imagine in many other countries today and a reminder of how life in china is returning to normal a week long holiday is likely to be a test though of the country's success in controlling the virus adrian brown al-jazeera hong kong. the russian opposition leader lexan of on the has accused president vladimir putin of directly ordering the poison attack against him the valley is still recovering in germany 6 weeks after he ingested

7:19 pm
a full and timely implementation of the withdrawal agreement we stand by our commitments a letter now from paul brennan who has more in london. i think that goes to the crux of the exhaust ration that the european union is feeling having seen the british sides in the negotiations essentially go back on the pre-agreed terms of the withdrawal agreement and having given the british 3 weeks to amend the internal markets bill and by the end of september with take out those controversial clauses the fact that they didn't meant it was inevitable that on the 1st of october underlaying would have to come out with this statement whether it will inevitably mean a day in court is by no means a foregone conclusion there are plenty of ways that this can be avoided 1st of all the british can relent and one route is through the agreements of the free trade agreement before the end of the transition period and the fact that they're still
7:20 pm
talking that still negotiating in brussels i think is a good sign whether they can do it in time though is another matter the british have set a deadline of the 15th of october the european union i think believes that's unrealistic and things early to mid november is more likely but the fact that they're still talking i think is a positive sign and it's not to get an absolute foregone conclusion that the 2 sides will face each other in some massive day in court dominant kain in berlin has more on the european perspective. pretty clear from. the lack of good faith from the british side of this particular scenario means that she and her colleagues. have to take this action they have to pursue the legal remedy if there is one the interesting thing is the rail politic element of this we know that there is an e.u. summit going on in brussels today and tomorrow we know that from the irish
7:21 pm
government remember the irish government is a particular player in this given the the fraught situation about border control should they be imposed on not between northern ireland part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland we know that the deputy prime minister has said today that he believes that there is still the scope for a comprehensive trade agreement which would not involve any form of terrorist for the controls like that and some form of minimum supervision might still be possible which would allow for a trade deal to happen but then juxtapose that with the view from the french government we know that the french of europe minister. born has said that without the british government removing the legislation that paul was just talking about there cannot be a trade deal so you have this sense that negotiations still going on but the lack of good faith as the europeans see it from the british perspective is definitely making it harder. attacking greece will jointly set up
