6:03 am
you will find that most of the people who aren't vaccinated identify as republicans . so it really doesn't matter what joe biden or the white house says. there are a lot of people out in the united states to say, we're never going to listen to what this guy's got to say. even though he's saying this could actually save your life. and if you break down the figures even more, you will see that the number of people who are dying tend to be in read state. that is republican state. and the majority of those who are dying are republican. and so that is a real what a note. i had that the fact that we're coming in to the christmas a new year break. remember a month ago we were talking about thanksgiving. how is a big travel day? people are going to big family gatherings. nothing compared to christmas and new year. in fact, from tonight, people are going to start heading off on their christmas and new year vacations. and that is a real waddy for the white house and for the health experts. because the believe that this will lead to a search, which of course then leads to increased hospitalized ations,
6:04 am
which means that job biden isn't kicking the, but of the oma convenient anytime soon. or the u. k. as seen a record number of covered 19 cases for the 3rd day in a row. while the $920000.00 in sections were registered on friday, around 4 percent on the chrome cases. total numbers nationwide increased by 39 percent just the week. but the death rate remains relatively low. what british research is say, the risk of reinfection with the con variant is more than 5 times greater than delta. the study suggest protection for those who've already had coven 19, maybe as low as 19 percent. and that it is not weaker than the delta various researches at imperial college london. warning on the con poses a major threat to public health, but the booster shots can provide up to 80 percent protection. france has announced major public parties and fireworks will be banned on new year's eve. s corona virus infections rise. prime minister john cast x says all citizens,

6:06 am
i got this train by chances i missed the restrictions that i'm probably i would undermine way to make it work anyway. wouldn't quickly change my train or maybe i wouldn't want to. i wouldn't want to spend christmas on herself, her people that i had to take the train to come to paris, whatever. and it's unfortunate and inside, but the same how many people are just trying to get a hold of what's going on. and you don't have to have empathy for that. even though if it comes to the point of impacting people's lives, you know, negative way. but it's been 2 years up, this has been dragging on so you know, it sucks, but it is what it is. well, the reason for these travel restrictions, according to the french government, is because they say they've been looking at the situation in the u. k. with a lot of concern, they're seeing the high number of cov infections there, and particularly the spread of the micron. a very now, even though there are registered cases of on the corner here in france, the government says that what they need to do is try and slow down is transmission

in the bonds. the estimates are shocking. according to information at our disposal, from november 2020, to june 2021. over 2200 survivors reported sexual and gender based violence to health facilities across the gray region. one of the one stop centers reported that the victims in over 90 percent of cases were miners and estimated that visit's to the center had quadrupled since the complete iraq that a year ago. it is important to keep in mind that this figures are most probably an underestimation of the true extent of the sexual, engender res vines being perpetrated. if the o p a has dismissed the accusations of abuse and says he won't cooperate with an investigation. we hold our own council members thought who
6:09 am
firm breasts of been stand against us shortsighted in those. and that he feels believe additional human rights by rejecting this is always you. i will leg to evaluate that. my government will not operate with any mckenzie or maybe in good, or he well, alex, the wall executive director of the world peace foundation. he says, the lack of cooperation from the government is making it difficult to assess the scale of the situation in te, grow. it hugely complicates the matter of course, if the yoke and government were as innocent, that is claiming to be would have no problem in lifting censorship. allowing the ethiopian media, her report freighting, which it's not allowing international journalists and human rights investigators in the very fact that it is not doing that. it is implicitly admission. the terrible things are going on. and the, the figures and,
6:10 am
and the reports that we are getting from the ground. really just the tip of the iceberg. every to grind whom i speak to, for example, every single one has lost a family member to, to violence. and it is, and the undocumented extent of the abuses is really quite hard. for many, apple is police officer, tim potter has apologized in court for shooting and killing 20 year old black men don't say right. she's facing 2 charges of manslaughter, but claims she meant to draw her taser instead of her gun video of the shooting set off large protests across the united states. john henry has more from chicago. the fate of kim potter white police officer accused in the racially charge killing of a black man will soon be in the hands of a jury. members of the jury in highly anticipated testimony in minneapolis, courtroom potter took the stand in her own defense, breaking down, saying she meant to pull out her taser. but the former police officer who was

6:12 am
violation. and during the cove at times of the high cove at times the departmental motor vehicles was so off line that people were getting tabs and we were advised not to try to enforce a lot of those things because the tabs, we're just not in circulation. then the stop went wrong, right? pulling away with an officer still dangling from his car. potter says the officer had a look of fear on his face and she wanted to save his life. potter is charged with 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter. legal experts say that the prosecution probably has to prove that she acted with some degree of consciousness. if the jury decides that she acted unconsciously and didn't know that she was using lethal force, that's probably not enough for a conviction. the shooting came when public interest in police killings of black men was at its peak in the midst of the racially charged trial of the white police officer who killed george floyd in neighboring minneapolis drawing protesters to
6:13 am
the scene of the brooklyn center. shoot over and over in a tearful cross examination, potter who had never fired a weapon in an arrest. apologized, you are focused on what you had done because you had just killed somebody you knew that gently force was unreasonable and unwarranted. i didn't want anybody . that's why you said, i'm going to go to prison. i don't know whether that happens and whether dante writes life ended in an unfortunate accident or a criminal act. a jury will decide. john henderson, al jazeera chicago, a silly head on zillow, celebrations and protests to mark to meet his revolution date. exactly 11 years since the spring began. a promise proposed johnson react after a crushing violation to members of his own party. questioning his lady from the
