just this year but also because as this trial kind of hit greece at the height of its economic crisis at some point in the beginning they couldn't find a proper court house other times the resources were just so. they couldn't find a projector to project evidence damning evidence against this group and one circumstance when i was there they called off the hearing simply because there was no heating but eventually after so many years it has managed to render a decision and it is a decision that appears to be at least at the relief and support of many greeks here and what sort of implications does this decision have for the government now the government really it is in effect to because justice has done its has paid its role. and in fact the ruling conservative party the new democracy party played

river and tried to escape but was caught shortly afterwards he was arrested and has been silent ever since. but that's a special situation that in this case we have the suspect we have the person who is accused of murder so we have evidence we have the fingerprints we have pictures if you compare it was a screen. we didn't have any person that we can question so i think that's the sort of quite unique situation right now according to investigators state on crescent of smallville fun indicates that the crime was carefully planned they say they have found links to the russian veterans association of the domestic intelligence service if. which several investigative journalists believe is just a cover. up still long. we can see that that in classic off the killer started visiting at speed training centers as early as spring 2019

security believes employees are prepared for special operations there. as the day of the murder approached he communicated more and more often with the f.s.b. employees. towards the end it was almost every day. the victim the same her hunger sheer had fought on the side of the rebels in the 2nd set or moscow had designated him a terrorist. this man was on our wanted list he's a fighter a cruel and bloodthirsty person. the kremlin denies any responsibility for their attack non of germany's 17 inquiries received a response it must to request full legal assistance were answered in there to quickly say the german authorities there in stone towards moscow is sharpening. the federal government reserves the right to take further measures in this case
1:09 pm
before. the german federal prosecutor may have brought charges against that in classical but politically just say that in reality the russian state is in the dark . let's go to the court where the trial has started today and a minute chase is standing by a manual of what more do we know about the prosecutor's case against the defendant . well this is no ordinary murder trial it's attracted a world wide attention because it's not really the case of determining who is guilty of the murder physically better who is behind and in fact all the indicates is a point to a russian ties we know that the suspect who traveled to germany weasel a false identity with russian passports we also know that he was assisted by russia and also we tease after that he's arrested that's what the prosecutor will try to
1:10 pm
determine during that's try of the session today was quite short it will resume tomorrow we had to cope plaintive bringing their testimonies. the trial of course coming at a time where relations between germany and russia are already strained so how is this trial impacting the state of affairs. well the relations are very strained indeed and not at least seen seán of on these poisoning late in august and i say no vonnie who was there and here taken in charge by the charity hospital here in berlin but say yeah the relations were already strained between germany and russia and if the russian response she believed she appears to be clear i have to diverge big that we expect here in january well if russia is proven to be responsive oh then of course germany might take measures against russia in the form for example of economy extensions how could germany react should the court
1:11 pm
roll that russia was behind the killing as it is it only those ships sanctions that are on the table or is there something more. well we can imagine sanctions i just mentioned the economy exemptions we so last december in light of these. what is now known as the tea gotten murder oh well germany had expelled 2 russian diplomats from ballina in moscow had retaliated by expanding into 2 german diplomats as well as so we can see an escalating tension between russia and germany are we kemo so i imagine some sanctions that's we'll affect. the guise of a pipeline project and those trained to do this we'll all probably on the fold we saw a verdict of that's got murder political correspondent emmanuelle a chase thank you. and let's turn to some other stories making news around the

1:14 pm
a penalty before this verdict they spoke to local press saying so the families of the victims saying they even expect life sentence but the judge said no there's not enough evidence to prove these charges so that's everything that that was that left to do and a security analyst actually said you know there were no masterminds on this stop there were no not even the attack as in the stocks they are believed to have fled or kill it during the standoff with the police during this 2017 westgate mall attack and the trial it started back in 2014 why did it take so long to arrive at this verdict. so this trial is actually a landmark trial because it is the 1st high level complex terrorism case that's being tried in kenya so it takes a lot of time to collect this evidence and to actually to build a strong case for that for example you have to collect you know data you have to

trace the money you have to trace phone calls you have to attribute those phone calls to the suspects they use alya says they use money meals meaning people who transport the money so you have to build a strong case and you have to build it meticulously otherwise you can't afford you know making any mistakes because otherwise public and the people in kenya they lose trust they lose trust into the judiciary system east africa correspondent mary thank you. in germany the number of delhi a new corona virus infections has risen to its highest since the end of april with officials for courting over 2800 cases on tuesday a surge in cases especially in the capital berlin has prompted the city to announce new curfews for bars and cafes as well as stricter rules for gathering in groups are until 10 went out onto the streets of berlin to find out how people have been

reacting. welcome to germany's new flashpoint. after months of staving off the worst of the pandemic the german capital has become the frontline in the country's fight against the virus half of all of germany's high risk areas are located here in this city including the district of. gatherings with little sign of social distancing are a common sight here most of the new infections are among young people under the age of 30 they're more likely to shrug off the infection with the diseases spread is also picking up pace among the old forcing berlin city government to take action there introducing new restrictions from saturday compelling bars and stores to close at 11 and limiting alcohol sales as well as the size of private gatherings not everyone supports the changes. yes you can just say much it's a hard question i think it's actually. a long but you have to maintain social distancing and i think as long as people do that it shouldn't be a problem to sit in the bar until late at night. i think the same i think everyone

sciences about the technology is contributing to a new therapy is against cancer and inherited diseases the award comes with the shares prize money of around $1000000.00. i thank you for let's get more on that i am joined by. eric williams from d.w. side of here in the studio derek was the surprise it wasn't a surprise it's for one of the 1st times ever since i've been reporting on this it wasn't a surprise these these 2 researchers are kind of rock stars and in the science world because this discovery that they made really only 8 years ago has really changed completely changed the landscape in a in a huge range of fields ranging from from from what we understand about how genes work so basic fundamental research to the cancer research to genetically modifying plants it's had it's made all of those things possible and so it's not surprising
1:23 pm
in the least in fact i think they probably would have gotten it earlier if not for the fact that there's been an ongoing sort of patent apple and and patent battle and with another group where sort of famously said well you know we discovered tennis balls and they discovered green tennis balls and and actually i think that the nobel committee has sent a signal by only honoring the 2 of them to send a signal that that that's actually what they believe as well and it's really time and now that those issues have been largely resolved it's really time for them to get the prize so then let's break it down get into the details of what makes it so special well it's about genetic engineering and the problem is is basically the mechanics of it are a little too difficult you know a little too complicated to go into but basically they created what's called what everybody calls genetic scissors which which is this molecular tool that allows you to cut d.n.a. and not only cut it but cut it into very specific precise plates which is really
1:24 pm
everything when you're when you're editing genes you have to cut it very specific specific precise places because otherwise you get off target effects and and not only that but this molecular tool that they came up with is also relatively simple to use compared to older systems we've been able to do this for several decades but the older systems really really clunky. and and imprecise and this is extreme this is the opposite it's straightforward and precise and it's also it's also fairly fairly simple to use that which means that labs all over the world have been able to employ it without investing a lot of money and a lot of really expensive equipment so for all of those reasons and others they've done really well with the nobel prize is supposed to do which is the ridge the original nobel for the greatest benefit to humanity and this falls sort of squarely in that category absolutely fascinating graduations to them derek williams from thank you. note for you now the legendary rock
