never before in human history has the month christine environments of the arctic in such peril. ah ah if he is prime minister abbey asked med says he will lead the military from the front lines as rebel advance and threaten his hold on the capital. ah. hasn't agitated a life from the house or coming up get vaccinated or risk dying from covey. germany's warning as cases surge in europe next door in austria, it's locked down once again. us jury is asked to weigh up, murder or self defense closing arguments in the trial of 3 white men, killing of

the spokesman for the t. right people's liberation front tweeted abby's mimicry of ethiopia war time emperors had taken on an all too powerful bold skits a frantic overturn, and that his vow to join his forces in the battlefield was another sick joke. william laurence is a former us diplomats and professor political science and international affairs at the american university. he explains what's behind the prime minister statement. i think is primary audience is those who'd be willing to fight to defend the capital . and that he says, stated b o p, in short order, i think a secondary audience is those who may be on the fence waiting to see these are the opiates waiting to see one side or the other prevails. i think there's multiple aspects of his message that are important. one is that i think he's portraying that that, that the conflict is similar up into gray rather than on the gave the capital.

to see but not to pie. the manager of this restaurant has closed down and is giving his fresh produce away to locals. he's pessimistic. i think everybody has enough of it and question as oh, why again, wasn't there enough time to prepare? we have the locked on now because obviously it's needed. not far away. the christmas market usually brightened, busy at this time of year is a sullen place. we'll opt out of the shuttle to last up to 20 days with a review after 10 full or many people fear it could last a lot longer. and with the restrictions come, an even bigger emphasis on the vaccination program. only 66 percent of the population have been vaccinated, leaving one of the biggest proportions of unvaccinated people in europe. so the government will introduce compulsory vaccinations in february. it's led to
resistance and protest. this woman has just had her 3rd vaccination, the booster jap. yes, she says people shouldn't be forced to have vaccinations. we had a chancellor who had made only marketing for his career and, but he didn't explain and that didn't make a good preparation for to to ensure that everyone will be back from a capital is across europe. a watching austria closely as they consider their own restrictions here. the daily number of death calls by the corona virus has tripled in recent weeks. this locked down is a last resort. andrew simmons al jazeera vienna hospitals in germany are running out of intensive care unit beds. johnson langley merkel says the con, restrictions don't go far enough. the health ministers urging more citizens to get

washington. the thing about georgia law there, it does have a very specific emphasis on, on what's called accomplish liability. so even if you're, you just part of a crime, if you seem to be contributing to the crime, you can be held liable. and that's where the prosecution is. going for the, the, the prosecutor also saying, look, you, 1st of all, aubrey was unarmed. he was running away. you can't claim self defense. if you are the one who actually instigated the altercation, you never mentioned anything about us. it was the rest to to the police and so on and on guys and the sort of the prosecution really relying on on the law and the admissibility of the law, not on, on race, which maybe maybe wise given us a jury of 11 white people and one black person, if these men are acquitted, clearly it will seem like, well, there are 22 types of justice in america, which i think most people, certainly who are looking for a successful prosecution already. already believe i'm and the argument is always
with written the house with these 2 men just reverse. busy the races, right. and if it was, if written houses black, imaginative, these men were black. and it was, we should remember, even in this case, in a reason, this is a trial right now is, i mean, the police didn't even follow up on the killing of all, but i'll bri until some footage appeared on facebook 2 months later. and then they were pushed into, into, into, into investigation because 3, what 3 whiteman, being involved, the killing of a black band. they said that he was a robot. well, now your guy must, must be the case. so, i mean, clearly this will just be confirmation that justice isn't fair, but the prosecution, as themes are made a very good legal case against these men. a us president joe biden has nominated jerome powell as chair of the federal reserve for a 2nd term bite. and spoke positively of pals actions during the global pandemic, but some disagree with his use on monetary policy. white house correspondent, kimberly how can reports ending months of speculation?

what is not clear? he should do that. because if the supply bottlenecks on open up soon, and there's some evidence that they're starting to, then you don't want to slam on the brakes just when the road is straightening. our financial markets responded favorably to the nomination, but the reaction wasn't always favourable from within the democratic party. sen, elizabeth warren has repeatedly criticized powell for not doing more to protect americans from financial institutions. miss deeds. she says she will vote against his re nomination over and over. you have acted to make our banking system less safe. and that makes you a dangerous man. despite that disapproval by some members of the president's own democratic party, jerome powell is expected to be confirmed by democrats and republicans in the u. s
