12:02 pm
a massive move back towards what was the previous normal here in germany as of the 15th of june border checks on neighboring countries to germany will indeed be lifted so named people in neighboring countries will be able to travel into germany without having to quarantine or undergo any checks when they arrive in the country say they say will also apply to countries across the e.u. and also to people coming in from switzerland as well there is however one exception and that is spain and people flying in from spain to germany they won't be able to do that until the 21st of june which is when spain will also start except in some small numbers of tourists there as well kate we understand that germany's travel warning to most of europe will also be lifted starting june 15th but there are exceptions to that as well tell us more about that. exactly the main
12:03 pm
exception is indeed spain but interestingly that is going to be a vacation pilot project if you will on the belair of highlands and so from the 15th of june already germans specifically will be able to travel to the bill erik islands just off the coast of spain many of them likely to travel to may york a huge tourist destination every year for germans here many people joking that it is indeed germany's 17th the federal state and so over the next couple of weeks from the 15th of june until the end of the month just under 11000 german tourists are expected to travel to the erica island especially me orca to test out how people can still be abiding by certain restrictions and social distancing rules while still being able to enjoy a short vacation so we're tracked talking right now about travel within the visa free schengen so what does it mean for germans or people living here in germany who
12:04 pm
want to travel to countries outside of that so. well for now at the travel warning the global travel warning exists elsewhere outside of the european union so until the end of all guessed that travel ban over the summer the travel warning i should say a travel warning will remain in place and that is still set to be reviewed in the coming weeks but the german interior minister horsy a whole for reiterated that in the meantime there simply isn't enough information to confirm exactly how safe it is for germans to be traveling abroad and the foreign minister the foreign minister as well said that they don't want to end up with a situation here in germany where they're going to have to bring back hundreds of thousands of german tourists again should there be a 2nd wave elsewhere if they ease that travel ban our political correspondent kate brady thank you for that update. as travel restrictions are eased
12:05 pm
however there's been a 2nd corona virus outbreak in germany after a lockdown measures were loosened at the western city of getting it and is now saying new cases surged to dangerous levels and a muslim roma community is facing accusations and racial abuse of that outbreak we went to getting in to find out more. the apartment building rises into the sky right next to the heart of the city this building has seen a significant outbreak of new coronavirus cases and getting several large muslim roma families supposedly gathered here to celebrate the end of ahmed on without sticking to social distancing rules the families the night this. yes we celebrated ramadan we all went to the mosque but we kept a distance everyone had a mosque on his own prayer much we followed the rules. since the outbreak of division between the people living in the apartment block and the rest of the city
12:06 pm
is growing a smear campaign broke out the inhabitants speak of spitting attacks and insults as. we are furious about watches happens to us this really is just purposely stirring up huge animosity towards us and to say it is. now the head of the city's action committee apologizes for some of the words he used when communicating the cases but some people are simply irresponsible she says. i'm sorry now that i used the words large families in connection with the outbreak because the words large families are often associated with people from an immigrant background and it was not my intention to discredit anyone but what we have to state is certain individuals have not followed the rules in the context of this outbreak and this is absolutely unacceptable when does i'm fine or go where the
12:07 pm
infection spread is still unclear this is also a suspected hot spot an illegal gathering with over 30 people is said to have taken place here many of them sharing the same shisha pipe now distancing measures that were just loose and could be tightened again after the latest outbreak schools have closed this week that makes people angry but there is also a sense of awareness freising this when he actually would move to oh it's unbelievable meeting at that restaurant i simply can't understand how they could do you that in this i'm 21st in this month the last minute. we can talk about the fact this was irresponsible behavior but that has nothing to do with the people's religion or nationality it's a cool video site anyone who does such things in times of restrictions meeting people in public places that simply brainless no matter what religion or beliefs they practice it's called the city has now tested as many people as possible in the
12:08 pm
last few days everyone agrees now that the infections are here for the spreading has to be stopped as quickly as possible. prosecutors in sweden have named the man they believe killed the prime minister olof palme in 1906 but they said they are now closing the case since the suspects stick and from dying to 20 years ago pummel was shot dead in stockholm in 1906 while walking home from the movies with his wife his killing shocked the nation police were accused of botching the initial investigation leading to numerous conspiracy theories come over to expand sweden's welfare state and was a vocal critic of the united states sweden's current prime minister has described thomas unsolved murder as an open wound. let's get more on that story now with class and he's a correspondent for swedish national television in stockholm class thank you for
12:09 pm
joining us prosecutors today named the man that they believe killed off on a who is c. and what was his motive. well he says you will see that your insurance agents they jumped and you worked at an office very close to it were public was shots and he was stripped juris old at the time and he seems to be rather old figure with extreme views on politics he was. said to have despised these socialists he was himself like moral right wing or other extreme right person but he was also person opus the according to the prosecutor most likely on his own not with an organization beyond cuff home was murdered 34 years ago why are we seeing this announcement being made now. well the 1st answered your question is that the limit all the prosecuting and well from the order was 25 years and that
12:10 pm
was changed like you know a little bit more than a decade ago just because of the ansal problem order that was on this and won't be in this week so and the 2nd reason is that the initial investigation was done very badly by the. prosecutors and police officers so there were a lot of documents little testimonies a lot of materials but very few clear cut conclusion to who had done this terrible crime in these 34 years there's been a lot of speculation there been a lot of conspiracy theories about what happened do you think that this announcement will bring sweden some closure. to some yes i mean will have problems most important today it's closure for me the party leader over writing the liberals and the moderates because the song said the same i guess the prime minister's own
12:11 pm
same opinion having said that though there's hasn't been a trial hasn't been in the courts of law just stating that that was the case because obviously that's not possible since the man's death since 20 years so there's still a lot of room for speculation conspiracy theorist and to say. that they will keeps taking and still is not the case that to them it's a it's it's announcing it's a closure that's a lot of people don't think since the you know kind of how have the swedish people of the public been reacting to this announcement today. now i think it's a it's a very vigorous situation here there are girl lot of people who think that you know in the 1st place you have to remember that this took place 986 that means that there's a new generation that has grown out and they're not so emotionally and intellectually connected to the snorter to damage some of the more abstract to people pain you're
12:12 pm
not each in i'm the 6 this it just it's a it's a it's a really terrible thing that's happening in contemporary swedish history and we we are has done fully satisfied with this prosecutor who seems to be a very competent person and one that is very very good police investigation but there are no hard hard evidence is connecting this man so and he says himself the prosecutor today that the evidence is that he has materialized wouldn't probably hold in court or all along this is or as they can get in this investigation and so to me and to us i mean to a lot of people that these this is very convincing class that can correspondent for swedish national television thank you for joining us. let's take a look at some other stories making news around the world a massive oil spill in russia's arctic region has polluted a lake that serves as the basin for water flowing into the arctic ocean emergency

12:14 pm
a major problem in india's overcrowded prisons especially in the capital delhi where jails are packed far beyond capacity is money to a child he met a former inmate who says conditions for prisoners could prove deadly. remembers the time he spent in jail. he was accused of involvement in several dead related cases. he was finally acquitted of all charges in 2012 but only after spending 14 years in prison he's tried to get back to leading a normal life but still is often reminded of this time locked up as a prisoner. especially now during the call the 1000 pandemic. says he was confined in a barrick with over $300.00 people instead of the allowed 150 percent it was difficult to even find speed to sit or lie down we couldn't comfortably be able to do each
12:15 pm
other while sleeping if anything good person gets infected with. it will be very difficult to control it from spreading it is very difficult to maintain social distancing. many big indian prisons are crowded far beyond their capacity this is because the last majority didn't preach i detention coupled with poor sanitation and nutrition this creates a perfect storm for the coronavirus for 100 people including prisoners and staff members death to call the 19 intimate prison now multiple positive faces have been detected in the daily business but this becomes especially concerning because maintaining social distancing in india for the crowded prison is next to impossible to decongest indian jails prisoners are now being released on interim being or images. depending on the severity of dicky's or how sick they are. is part of a net folk of lawyers working pro bono to secure the release of inmates on bail but
12:16 pm
things are not moving as fast as they should about 10 per cent of prisoners have been released so far on being according to official figures. one must says he's verdict that fresh arrests are still being meat because normally. there should be bomb. all these things can be done by the quality. 11 itself if there is a necessity move you would govern by the u.s. supreme court or to many inmates unknown like sitting ducks they have hardly any protection against the virus can do or would do until one day you caught a russian intellectuals once said that a society's degree of civilization could be just by entering its prisons and imperialist thompson that he was and says this is a matter of basic human rights everyone should be entitled to them. no matter where
12:17 pm
they live he says that indian prisons need to be prevented from falling 3 to a greek tragedy. let's go right to delhi we're joined by the who works on prison reform at the commonwealth human rights initiative she is tracking how many prisoners are being released on bail due to the pandemic site and for joining us should india release more prisoners to minimize the risk of spreading the corona virus to asian opinion prisons. 70 percent of the property is under crime and everything turned so i do be opposed and. not be kept in cyprus and for an extended period of time we also have a huge population of people who. are more than you know 5 year olds. so i really give him you should be because i'm more his nose and specifically given the fact that. overcrowding in prison is such that it's.
12:18 pm
i think almost human interest. but what about how people feel about this man are people worried about those who are awaiting trial or people who already in prison being released back into society. ideally things such as those need not be blamed on public opinion but indeed is that the countries you have something like risk assessment with. what kind of victories but what was in society. on the basis of it through a beautiful. scientific method it's a multi-year he would support but even. ok we'll have to leave it there. joining us from delhi thank you so much for sharing your insights with us today and you're watching news still to come on the show how to explain the barbarity of the
