5:03 pm
minister there apologizing to parliament. has he done enough to quality anger amongst his own party? that's right, so straight off the bat, the prime minister apologized. he told parliament on the british public, i get it and i will fix it. whether that is enough, though, while the jury is still out on that, had been thought, the publication of this report would be the moment that members of his own party would decide on his political future. that though was before, it became clear that not the, the full details of the alleged gatherings wouldn't form parts of the findings of this report. it had been felt, it would be watered down, not perhaps, might bind the prime minister some more time. that wouldn't be the momentum for m p 's to gather around in order to make a decision on his political future. but this report redid to pack more of a punch than some people were expecting, though,
5:04 pm
didn't name the prime minister directly. it did talk about fe is of leadership, which of course, at the top of which is the prime minister, boris johnson. now, there is still a questions and on says i going on in parliament just behind me at the moment, but already in the very early stages of this already i've been a number of members of his own party who come out say they no longer support him including foreign, former prime minister, theresa may, he said, the report shows that number 10 a observing did not, did not observe the regulations that it imposed on the public. not really is the hot of this did boris johnson and those around him not follow the rules that he was asking the rest of the public to do so they were there 12 of these gatherings this reporter sat, talked about 4 of them because of these police intervention a what has been the most dangerous part of, of what has been published for mr. johnson?
5:05 pm
i think you're alluding to it right. that the fact is that none of the alleged gatherings of gatherings would detailed in this report. su gray, the civil 7 to let this report said she didn't think it was fair to detail any of them given that she couldn't go into particular depths on the 12 that are under police investigation. but that is something that we did not know clearly before. it was not a clearly uh, specified how many gatherings, why being investigated by the police. we know now there are 12, including a, some that the prime minister say, we know went to war is alleged to have gone to that's will be crucial. but of course, our police investigation could take weeks, possibly even months before we truly find out the findings of that. and the report does make clear that we should not read into the fact that they haven't gotten to any details on them. makes clear that so the police may not find any arg, any criminal wrongdoing head that is for them to decide. thank you for that. i sean chil, somehow in london, i here in germany,
5:06 pm
a police in the south west of the country are looking for at least one suspect and the killing of 2 police officers. a 38 year old man is believed to have opened fire when he was pulled over in a routine traffic stop in the city of kaiser's lawton, police looking for evidence. the lethal shots were fired here on this county road early on monday morning. the 2 police officers, a 24 year old police officer training, and a 29 year old colleague managed to place an emergency call. but additional officers who rushed to the scene came too late. if i can control it from a police officer's point of view, roadside checks are among the most dangerous situations. you can't know what you're about to get into. you don't know who's in the vehicle, what's in the vehicle, what items you'd find there? and how will the person who's being checked react, and that that was probably also the case here of out of his son, police have started
5:07 pm
a big man hunt for the culprits. not only and ryan and palatinate, but also in the neighboring sov region. it's unclear who the culprits are and which direction they took to flee. the authorities assumed that several perpetrators are on the loose, at least one of them, carrying a weapon. a switched indigo inman as, as the interior minister of the state and the superior of the regional police. and as a father of 4 children, the same age as the 2 police officers who were killed with utmost brutality and deeply shot. your fat, middle beyond the rhine and platen, a police together with their colleagues from the czar region are working urgently. and i hope you understand i won't comment on an investigation that's ongoing. besides the saga, the other, the deed also shocked the federal government in berlin, said to spokesperson for the federal interior minister reading out her statement. nothing is our fault independently of what motivated this deed. it resembles an
5:08 pm
execution i. it demonstrates that police officers risk their lives for us on the job every day. my thoughts, i'm going to victims, families, colleagues, and friends. we will do everything we can to hold the perpetrators accountable, have it in my. i then shot the interior minister run on palatinate that will give him all the support he needs for rapid arrests and investigations. police have edge drivers not to pick up hitchhikers and have asked the population to help in finding the perpetrators. or we can go straight to the sailor jaunty, doubly reporter yashira vega. welcom yashira, bring us up to date. well, as you have heard, there were 2 police officers shot. and the last thing i could do were using their radio and sending out the message to the other police officers in the station. they are shooting at us. which incident that they are could have been more suspects, does them just one. but what's going on now is that the police are searching for
5:09 pm
one suspect, 38 year old, and he has your hands s coming from the region of the silent. and he's armed. that's what we heard so far. ah brown, hair wearing glasses and probably very dangerous. this is for the police said, and as you can see, the district road 22 just behind we 22 are, is still blocked by the police as investigation is going on. and they are still searching for the suspect or even more suspects. that is still right now. unclear. right. so 2 dead officers are at the c. m. had they drawn their guns? well there are reports that they did, but the police folks person i talked to some minutes ago, couldn't confirm that to me. and there are reports saying that one officer is shot all are everything he had on the, on the suspect. but this is not confirmed as,
5:10 pm
as i said. and what we could confirm is that the main police officer who died late later was still alive when police was arriving there. and so that was a fact the police could confirm to us that right now the investigation is going on . and we have to say that this part of germany is quite rule. we have a lot of big forests here. so there are many places where a suspect can hide and maybe duck away from the police, a searching him with helicopters, with doc units searching for him. so we don't know where he is right now, and it could be that this investigation is going on. still some, some hours over the night, right? german police officers are routinely on. this was a shooting act incident. is it unusual for officers or to be involved in this sort of incident? it is unusual or these kind of crimes don't happen very often in germany. and we
5:11 pm
have to say that these 2 police officers were in an unmarked police vehicle. and we learned from the police officer that it's quite unusual that they do routine. police stopped on an on a route rods like this early in the morning air in an unmarked police vehicle. so they, there must have been a quite a sign or something suspicious about the suspect. why they did this control this check on this room road just behind me. all right, thank you for that. your show viber of un security council meeting to discuss russia's military build up along its border with ukraine for the 1st time meeting. we'll see a rush as a you, an ambassador, lined up against is a western counterparts. meanwhile, lawmakers in the united states are preparing further sanctions against the kremlin if it launches an attack on its neighbour in ukraine, civilians, and are being trained to fight and to use weapons authority to say about
5:12 pm
a 100000 people have already received military training in recent years in preparation for a potential russian attack. well, more recruits means a need for more weapons, but germany has upset its nato allies by refusing to send down to ukraine. berlin says the export of lethal weapons the region could increase tensions. russian fighter jets in eastern europe, moscow's military build up on ukraine's border has key of desperate to arm it's defense forces. ukraine has asked germany for support, but as met reluctance from the new coalition government. while berlin has approved the delivery of 5000 helmets, it said no to leave. the weapons is good that i did at one mit. that was right now we're trying to engage russia and diplomatic talks to avert a war in the middle of europe. i believe supplying weapons would send the complete run signal. it would not lead to an easing of diplomatic tensions next panel. as a door to con, the german government is still deciding whether nato ally, estonia,
5:13 pm
continue, crane, heavy artillery made in the former east, germany berlin's policy not to export. lethal weapons to conflict regions is backed by the greens, because in at lodge launched it. of course it's a central question, is it possible to be tough, engage in dialogue with russia and deliver weapons? i'd say no, and that's why our policy is the right one or the only for the night of the subs in megan august. if you've asthma that policy for now doesn't include a stop to the node stream to pipeline. but if russia does attack ukraine, chancellor olive salt isn't ruling out painful sanctions. let's get more from the w correspondent on a salad in washington. a welcome oliver. this meeting of the security council has been called by the u. s. what do they hope to get out of? it will feel clearly the united states want to put the topic on the world stage and to raise more awareness for the ongoing conflict that's already all over the news, of course a but at the united nations security council,
5:14 pm
the goal is to raise pressure on russia and it really is going to be a fight for the public opinion. we're going to see later today, although it's very unlikely that we're seeing any formal action resulting out of that meeting or even a resolution. russia has veto, right? so they're in a very comfortable in a very strong position. also, china has already announced support for russia, but the united states want to use the security council as a forum to press russia hard on the topic over a true filled up at the ukranian border. busy with the ultimate goal to gain momentum of for the ongoing diplomatic effort. now ukraine isn't a member of the security council, but it will take part in today's meeting. so this could be a chance for direct diplomacy between russia and ukraine. also wins 1st and foremost that we're in for a very controversial debate because there are all conflict parties involved is the 1st time the security council gets together on the topic. and we already got a little taste of the rhetoric we're going to hear there,
5:15 pm
the u. s ambassador to the united nations when the thomas greenfield said russia has a clear threat to the international peace and security. so we've, we've heard that rhetoric already, but then russia countering calling that security council meeting a shameful p r stand. and then the russian delegate, you mentioned, will also speak, so we're going to hear all conflict parties. however, that will be largely symbolic, right? the u. s. i already has sanctions against russia in place. what else of a considering now? now the u. s. and the western partners of course, the european union also has sanctions in place. and they were put in place back in 2014 after the russian annexation of crimea considered ineffective by some. and so of course, the west is threatening with a new level of sanctions that are reaching from economic boy cards to cutting off russian bangs from the international financial grid to even personal sanctions. again, flooding putin, which has been considered
5:16 pm
a taboo in former years. but in any way, so those new set of sanctions that are rendered, some of the toughest sanctions that have ever been imposed against a country would hurt the russian economy. it will also probably hurt the world economy. therefore, there's a lot of criticism, of course, also saying that that those sanctions would, would, of course, also support vladimir putin narrative. ok, thank you for that element of a salad in washington. some more, all the app store is making a headlines around the world and will start in brazil where at least 21 people have died following heavy rains, landslides and flooding. in the state of south, paolo destroyed the homes of hundreds of families. the states, governors authorized emergency aid for affected areas. brazil's been experiencing torrential rain and heavy flood since december. powerful storm that swept through parts of europe over the weekend has killed at least 5 people. fatalities were reported in the u. k. denmark, germany, poland,

5:18 pm
which has condemned the missile test it gramma dental done door beside it or not because a lot, a series of actions by north korea, including the repeated launches of ballistic missiles, threatened the peace and security of japan, the region and the international community on a little okay. such intense ballistic missile launches are in violation of relevant security council resolutions. and our country has made a strong protest to north korea date again, junior, call your dash semester. the missile test comes as western diplomats negotiate to prevent a possible russian invasion of ukraine and with relations with china. and there was for years. so that is north korea taking advantage of why the tensions in the international community on the w put that question to josh smith, who is a senior correspondent with the reuters news agency in so north korea appears to be testing the limits of what can get away with at this point, it's heavily sanctioned already and it looks around the world as you say,
5:19 pm

washington. welcome to date every professor. so we have all of a, some thousands of afghans around the world, still waiting to be evacuated to tune the u. s. a. what do you think is holding up the process? it's a complicated question. a bottom, the challenge has been the evacuation process was halted early december because of tensions between the government and the thought on regime and got are, has been one of the most important transit points for the evacuation flight. and so the halting for 2 months has obviously added to the backlog of the challenge with regards to the evacuation that had been going on in the context of the u. s. history withdrawal in the fall of 2021. so that is one of the main reasons that has obviously intensified the challenges and the grievances and
5:24 pm
concerns and so stranded in transit countries. and now the u. s. evacuation plans are set to renew and if that happens and it happens smoothly, it is estimated that about 2000 pounds, maybe actuated every month in the coming days. but that of course, is barton package of a broader challenge in terms of different kinds of issues that have emerged in the context of border closures in terms of being able to get the kind of people were and of course vetting questions that still continue with regard to the are going back. right. so that, that's, that's a lot of things that have to line up just right in order for this to happen. well, for these people, perhaps a word about those afghans have all ready made it to, to the yes to the rest. what have you heard about them and their ability to settle that the united states army. now,
