1:01 am
daily infection. and call for a wish welcome to the program prosecutors in france have opened a terrorism investigation after a police worker was stabbed to death at a police station near paris 3 people thought to be connected to the attack or have been detained french president of money on the call said the country would never give in to what he called islamist terrorism. a normally quiet residential area just outside paris now the center of attention in france security agents flooded the area investigating the killing of a police employee that occurred in an unlikely location. the police station is very well protected there is
1:02 am
a protective lock and so people can't just walk in so the attacker waited for her to go and change her parking ticket the murderer caught her by surprise as she left the police station for just a moment and so it was really a cowardly barbaric attack to kill someone and to kill a policewoman. local media report that the attacker was a 36 year old man with no criminal record some witnesses say they heard him say allahu akhbar arabic for god is great as he stabbed his victim a police officer then opened fire on the attacker killing him there suggestions the man had previously scouted out the site. the office of the national antiterrorism prosecutor has taken charge over the investigation of the crimes committed here. the reasons for this are 1st how the events occurred which involved looking for
1:03 am
a target. also the way the crime was committed. the profile of the victim but also the remarks made by the perpetrator at the time of the crime. the president in my normal crime paid tribute to the police worker whom he identified as stephanie in a tweet he said the nation stood by her family he added in the fight against islamist terrorism will not give up. islamist terrorism is again a worry for france. earlier we spoke to journalist catherine sailed in paris she gave us more details about what's known about the alleged attacker. in the last few hours police have gotten to the home of the assailant not far from the police station and humble you to the southwest of paris we will soon know that they're carrying out a search of his previous home which is in eastern paris and is they've also taken into custody for questioning free of members of his close entourage we understand
1:04 am
one of those could be a family member in the meantime police also say they have his mobile phone going through that to see what sort of links he may have had in the last few hours before this attack took place with links to jihadist organizations or anyone that can give them some sort of clue as to where this man was coming from what it was doing who were his accomplices if indeed there were any because this is a man who was not known to the security services he was known to the intelligence services so they really just fumbling around at this moment to try to put together a picture of what actually happened in those minutes before this attack took place catherine sail from paris there leaders from around the world have joined us president joe biden in setting new climate targets and think the 2 day march will global climate summit president biden urged his counterparts to make good on their
1:05 am
commitments in order to slow global warming good morning hello everyone good morning everybody ling in for day 2 of the virtual climate summit the 1st day soar national targets for limits on emissions now topping the agenda of innovation u.s. president joe biden playing up the economic advantages of fighting global warming. an opportunity to create millions of good paying jobs around the world in innovation and innovative sectors you know are jobs of bring greater quality. greater degree the people performing those jobs in every nation. button says workers in traditional energy sectors must be offered new opportunities the u.s. wants to take the lead in developing green technologies stepping up the pace of research and making more use of public and private investment and using just
1:06 am
today's technologies won't allow us to meet our ambitious goals we need new 0 carbon products that are just as affordable that how what i call a green premium of 0. thank you prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced israel would phase out cold by 2025 but experts say existing targets and schedules won't be enough to cap global warming at the agreed 1.5 percent. my colleagues and we so it's gonna have been following the summit from washington so me and joe biden set out some very ambitious plans for us greenhouse emissions he wants to slash them in half by 2030 could these goals be too ambitious perhaps. well that's a sideline question a lot of people are asking here in of coal and as you said the by the administration has set itself this is an ambitious agenda and if you talk to
1:07 am
climate analysts here they say that this really shows that the u.s. is heading in the right direction but there is a lot of skepticism that you're referring to whether this goal is really achievable and we also don't know what the road map is how the u.s. is planning to get to this 50 percent cut and president biden until now has been pretty light on the details i mean we heard him say that it's going to involve a lot of investment in renewable energy cutting fossil fuels and really overhauling the transportation sector so electrification of vehicles but at the end of the days we have to keep in mind nicole that this is a non-binding commitment there is a lot of opposition among republicans in congress he would have to also get a lot of big business and industry on board so yes the u.s. is aiming higher than it ever has but it's going to be very tough to get there the pair's agreement established clear goals on climate change what did joe biden announce this week harrison. well there's not much new to call this really was
1:08 am
a lot about symbolism about showing that america is back and it wants to lead on climate change and to restore trust among our allies but really the by the restriction i think was hoping for more concrete commitments than it actually got so you know we only saw 2 countries pledge new targets on emissions it was canada and japan a lot of people were looking to see what china would do china's the world's biggest polluter and she basically reiterated what the country had already planned which is to get to net 0 by 2060 and to strictly control coal power but again there was nothing concrete there india as well didn't promise anything new so there is some disappointment perhaps that there wasn't any any new pledges that the buy demonstration of been looking for but we know that joe biden will be heading to the u.k. in brussels in june we found that out on friday and he's really going be focusing on strengthening alliances so i think we can expect that climate change is going to be very high on the agenda there joe biden says he sees huge opportunities in
1:09 am
developing green technologies but do u.s. companies agree with them there well you know joe biden has made the argument that this is going to be crucial to make a clean energy sector that is competitive with the rest of the world but there is as i said a lot of pushback republicans here say this is going to kill the economy this is going to see millions of jobs lost that being said i think it's important to point out that earlier this week the biggest coal mining union said it would back president biden's plan as long as those jobs are replaced the people essentially are not displace so there is a feeling among the biden ministration among officials there that there is more momentum behind this plan and there is optimism that at least he will be able to convince some people in the economy that this is the right way forward to telling your correspondents and we so much kind of thank you very much. let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world at this hour

a card saying it's common practice for the german government to do so abroad. despite all the press reports there was no reason to assume sirius can regulate he said why a card the german chancellor told the committee. however they aware already indications that something was very wrong and why a card in september 29000 when angela merkel met chinese president xi still new to the german government nor the financial regulator bothin were suspicious opposition politicians find that troubling. market entry in china also a key product. storage companies desperately needed in 91 when certain shareholders and investors and so i think not deliberately not intentionally in fact supported how any fact at least the continuation. sheet i mean relation and this is of course well it politically

land and so of course as. exploration is continue in. sometimes you have spins but you have an agency that is. that kind of spirit we need the cooperation of the people of that area and so. by lines also sometimes part of the problem so really is a project that needs effort of the government and the people of the area are that wise it will be difficult to clean. when you are cleaning up and somebody is. refining. or somebody is bust in pipe somewhere and minister x. if it. had to go to datchet and british courts to get justice why couldn't they get justice in nigeria and courts. they are pinned in kisses here in nigeria and court . of the case is still being hard to. get in just
1:50 am
nigeria and just the system works just as well just assume no wood court cases sometimes it takes longer. if you have competing interest in this particular area and then minister what would be the practical difference to these foreign court decisions and what difference would they make to the lives of people in. what i'm sure the to give some kind of compensation. to the people i would expect that when they get. it should make a difference in their lives just as the kind of. life changing activities we provide in livelihood today people. now can support.
