10:07 pm
double jeopardy. and that's not allowed here in the us, so cow rittenhouse, he's off scot free on these charges and has been convicted of nothing. and therefore it will serve no sentence. he's not on probation. he is simply a free man. and you could see the look on his face melted into tears of joy as he heard that verdict. and i think a lot of people were really expecting a conviction on some charge. and the reason for that is that the prosecution added lesser charges at the end. those are, are 2nd degree charges rather than the 1st degree homicide. first degree attempted homicide. first degree, reckless homicide. he was acquitted of all those. there were a number of people lawyers that i spoke to and speculated that the prosecution had a chance of getting a conviction by adding those lesser charges late in the game. but that was not the case. this is a jury that decided decisively. they have to do that unanimously. so the verdict in

10:22 pm
well. here in the town of su, mass where i'm at now. this is a town of only about 1500 people. they're dealing with other issues. you're primarily look at this, that is one of several train cars that has derailed here because the flood waters were so strong, it just what it out and washed away the train tracks and pushed all of the train cars off of the tracks as well. this is significant because here that is impacting the supply chain between canada and the united states. here in washington, it's a very important train line, but it also just gives you an idea of how strong these flood waters were. if you come back in this direction, you get an idea that if a city hall right here to my right, that was completely flooded as well. this is one of the biggest storms that if it
10:23 pm
hit this region in many, many years, this is an area that used to storms and floods. it's in a little bit of a flood plain. but everybody said this is the worst storm that they have ever seen . this is main street over here at 80 percent of all of the homes. and all of the businesses have been totally flooded. and as you can see, a little a chinese restaurant over there. sushi and terry ocoee asian cuisine, it says the owner there has just been taking out all of the furniture in the restaurant, but basically trying to dry out whatever they can. but this is certainly going to take many weeks months and some people say even years for their to be a full recovery. thank you very much. gabrielle is on joining us that from the washington state, which has also been effective by record levels of mindful now a u. k. government is saying that it will designate olive hamas
10:24 pm
a terrorist organization. anyone expressing support family could face jail and interactions with members could be in breach of the case. terrorism acts, a mass as the move is biased towards israel and bulk as more now from the british home office in london. this is the clearest signal yet that the british government is unprepared to compromise with hamas and now wants to designate the entire organization all of its different facets of wings. as a single bond terrace organization. it's military wing back in 2001 was designated as such. and now britain's home secretary, speaking of the united states so that she was acting on new intelligence about her masses capabilities and out of her desire to protect jewish communities in britain and further afield. her math is fundamentally rapidly anti semitic, and she semitism is an enduring evil which i will never tolerate. anyone who supports or invites support for prescribed organization is breaking the law. that
10:25 pm
now includes hamis in whatever form it takes, will in response to mass accuse the british government of being bias towards israel, half lost here with us. she is. i mean it's the british government or communist and is, i mean, she wants to get more problems or the sting allison. i mean it's just, this is don, bye here, but i still esteem. hence we will continue defending our people and fighting against that bishop. there is also some concern about the possible impact on grass roots, organizations in gaza that have been over the years, dependent upon hamas for support. a mass as well as its military and political wing that is governed garza since 2007 also has a social services wing that has provided a range of support to people in need there, including fresh water and housing even covering people's rent when the homes were
10:26 pm
destroyed by a israeli bombardments. there is some concern that the money needed by these groups may well be stifled as organisations and supporters around the world seek to distance themselves from hamas. nevertheless, pretty fertile is very eager to get this through parliament as early as next week, something that is very likely to happen. given the government significant majority, there is trouble bring between india and nepal. indian businesses demanding that government imposed terrace on t imports from nepal, saying they had local brands. but napoli is trying to say that he is better and fills a gap in the indian market. same restaurant, thee has moon out from ilan in east and the palm. no soldiers, no guns, but it in paul's eastern border with india. tensions are simmering. an unlikely front line is where for years the 2 countries have been locked in quiet conflict
10:27 pm
over one of the world's most precious and widely consumed commodities. for nepal. t plantations. it's a fight for survival. yeah. money. well yeah, he is the goose that lays the golden egg. there is local production happening. we have local companies here worldwide. people drink tea and it's also good for health . we drink it and we call alarm district. the place to mind for tea in alarms markets, himalayan t is liquid gold fuel for the country's economic engine. but growers from the neighboring indian state of west bengal, or lobbying their government to impose terrorists and bureaucratic roadblocks to take their landlocked neighbors. p off the table where here at nepalese border with india now and dar dealing is just 30 minutes down this road past that checkpoint. now the terrain, the soil,
10:28 pm
even the plants that the t comes from. it's all the same in this area, but indian grover say that there's is the original darjeeling brand, and only their t should be allowed to carry the name, the seeds of what some nepalese have taken to calling the kettle. wars were planted more than a century ago. when the british still ruled, india smuggled out of china and planted in darjeeling in the 18. hundreds indian growers say their t is the genuine article and importing from the paul is destroying a legacy brand. but indian traders routinely mixed naturally te width and sell it as darjeeling to make up for supply shortfalls and meet massive market demands. in fact, india is nepalese, biggest customer, half of the tea made here and almost all of the premium. great stuff. most similar to darjeeling is bought by india for nipple, ease owners, india stirring up trouble is just about protecting market share. i pill that very,
10:29 pm
very big country with the tiny yard. we have a small, you're going to me and we have a 1000000000 and a 1000000000 for the future with india 1000000000 and 1000000000. and that we don't have anything to sell our product to india when the t is in a very small quantity. that is not going to the end. any good. i mean nothing. but the big thing part of brewing tensions steeped in history at risk of boiling over or a storm in a teacup indian concerns have merit. but now police say t should move as freely between borders. as their people to zane basra, the old euro alarm district, eastern nepal. now the longest pasha lunar eclipse in nearly 600 years, which left the moon with a red haze as taken place. double the blood moon, the best views were in north and south america, australia and northeast and asia. lunar eclipse is occur when the earth shadow
