a cluster munition all the hallmarks i hear burn down because shattered glass and if you look closely at the walls and windows here along this whole street they have pierced with tiny tiny holes this is the deadly power of a cluster bomb and other aspects of using one is that when a rocket shoots dozens of little bombs of little grenades many of them don't explode so we were being told not to go down that street because that's where locals gathered those grenades that didn't explode and there detonating them on purpose they're doing so because each unexploded grenade like this poses a grave threat to especially to children because they look harmlessly look innocent so a kid picks up such a such a bomb starts playing with it and it explodes in their hands now it's been just hours into this tentative cease fire between armenia and azerbaijan but everyone who i've been talking to nobody really believes it will hold they certainly do hope

need to go further we should press on with the war and take back our territories. we don't want a cease fire they must leave our lands they must leave and let our people leave there in normal conditions that's only want we have nothing to do with them they should stay away from us and we heard from the director of britain's crisis research institute who thinks the 2 sides will be unable to make real progress without broad public support. shaky partly because you're all about mineral city on both sides not just the treatment so dysfunctional that some it's public opinion and for instance we must be afraid that was a risk that already in book of the some dissenting voices saying why are we stopping the war when we as a result we winning so there's a danger that governments who made the improvement could be pressed what would have been into new that will particularly only as interest not the other problem is that the agreement is essentially a very short one it says that it's to enable the new to be recovered and also

christians to be exchanged and those felt the top story she found a way of mechanism for bringing about a longer term she is far already in peace i think russia is a key player because it enjoys a considerable degree of trust and a lot of contact with those of our german omonia and its next door. and so it has its own interests in a peaceful solution to the problems perhaps other players further away. interests that they don't have any risks the state stands to lose if there's a conflict and it's actually on. the whole trump held his 1st public event since falling sick with coronavirus the address supporters from the white house balcony us president said he was feeling great and repeated his promise that a vaccine will soon be available the crowd of well wishes gathered on the south lawn chanting best support has been just over a week since trump was hospitalized with covert 90 and his doctors said that it's now safe for the president to attend public events although there are doubts
5:07 pm
whether the president still has the virus. when it i have been retested and i die haven't even found out numbers or anything yet but i've been retested and i know i'm at either the bottom of the scale or free the 2nd u.s. presidential debate was supposed to be happening this coming thursday but it's been officially canceled after the trump and biden campaign teams fail to agree on a new format the democrats. so the debate commission for that not to suggest that the match up could be conducted remotely but donald trump ruled that out meanwhile the democrats have to the spotlight held trump physical and mental health saying it could provide grounds to remove the president and it's the house speaker leading the charge is kind of moping explains. nancy pelosi is known to be one of donald trump's biggest and most loyal fans she's on record telling us just how much she loves him. well she's so concerned now about donald trump's health that she's introducing
5:08 pm
legislation if a president suffers a crippling there's a cold or a mental problem and his on end of the man match on able to discharge the powers and duties of his office and transfers his powers the 25th amendment of the u.s. constitution and abel's the president to be kicked out of office if he's rendered to be mentally or physically incapable in order for that to happen the vice president and most of the cabinet needs to meet and declare the president to be unfit to lead the democrats are now looking to set up a mechanism where as congress would have more of a say when it comes to the president's health nancy pelosi maintains this is not about this is not about president trump he will face the judgment of the voters but he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents the president's allies say that this is yet another
5:09 pm
attempt by the democrats to push trump out of office. i wouldn't put a post speaker pelosi to stage a coup she's already weaponized impeachment was to keep her from weaponized in the 25th amendment who can forget last year's failed impeachment proceedings i'm announcing the house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry and directing our 6 committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of the impeachment inquiry the president must be held accountable no one is above the law now nancy pelosi failed to remove donald trump in 2918 but apparently she has another plan up her sleeve she was sitting on it until just the right moment some of mention the possibility if they try to push through a nominee in a lame duck session that the jew in this the house could move to impeach we're not ruling anything out of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in
5:10 pm
our quest for nancy pelosi makes no bones about the fact that she's been trying to remove donald trump from office all along she's been looking for any potential opening all i hear from the press is that i'm moving so swiftly like a blur going by this is then a couple of years 2 and a half cynthia and michelle and education and my wife he says or whatever headline he wants to carry around here impeached ever so with the election in less than a month we've got democrats possibly using constitutional maneuvers to try and remove trump from office just in case he wins at the polls that does not sound like a position of confidence but then again with so much fear about contested results this november nothing in american politics seems normal these days what she proposes is a new legislation to set up a permanent 17 urson commission to try to evaluate whether or not. will this is something that they are made. of representatives before the election but it
5:11 pm
certainly is not going to pass in the senate and go away. is president trouble going to say this was saved tried everything else take it a try to remove this seems to say something to it you put it at a news site ok i tried it last week and this to me is isn't dormice waste of time and resources and energy so most of the stuff is being carried out at a time when the speaker refuse to engage in real negotiations about stimulus which is critically important to all of our. demonstrations descended into chaos in the south african town of santa cole after thousands of predominantly white farmers surrounded the local courthouse the crowd wanted 2 suspects handed over to the news case was about to be heard but 2 black men stand accused of murdering a white farmer the crowd tried to force their way into the building while police held them back to clashes store a police van overturned and set on fire and stun grenades thrown i promise or accusing the government of inaction on farm murders in south africa. i think people

5:17 pm
a concern people as they grow. as they become fatigued or tired or weary they also under the measures that have been implemented by many member states by many countries have become isolated they become alienates and they feel lonely in many situations so in that situation they're more likely to feel a very high cost of the measures that they're being asked to perform so i'm not saying that family members for example not going to social gatherings do not have the usual behavior becomes a very high cost for them and so then less likely to actually go and wear a mask to practice safe. physical distance and we're very concerned about that see here the double european region because we feel it could be contribution of course soon a resurgence into a rise in transmission of 19 and man's best friend is joining the ranks against the

global pandemic and russia trained as a working with a special cross breed dog which is learning to sniff out covert cases leaving the virus with no way to hide. well. there are all procedures pretty simple there are 2 samples of non-infected and infected volunteers and the dogs are learning to identify called the infections by smell. they have an outstanding sense of smell it's not only very keen that they also possess an ability to switch from small concentrations to be plants and vice versa
5:19 pm
which is very difficult for many other dogs besides they are small size which is convenient because they can squeeze through all easily the heaven inherent search ability of. the u.s. government serving one of the country's top universities for alleged racial discrimination the justice department claims that yale is limiting the number of white and asian students in violation of federal law. for the last few decades yale's oversized standardless intentional use of race has subjected domestic non transfer applicants to yale college to discrimination the ground of race yale's race discrimination includes imposing undue and unlawful penalties on racially disfavored applicants
5:20 pm
including in particular most asian and white applicants and a long running probe the justice department looks at applicants with similar grade schools have found that a white or asian candidate is up to 10. times less likely that a black candidate to be accepted into the ivy league university or yale's actions are allegedly a violation of the civil rights act of 1964 similar allegations have been made at a late u.s. colleges for years since the introduction of affirmative action rules there aimed at supporting disadvantaged groups but have often raised concerns over reverse discrimination yale's been defending its admissions policies against the new law suit. i want to be clear does not discriminate against applicants of any race or ethnicity admissions practices are completely fair and lawful yields admissions policies will not change as a result of the filing of this baseless lawsuit or the case against yale comes less than a month before the u.s. election drawing some contrasting views from our guests on the political backdrop
5:21 pm
and also the long standing concerns over affirmative action. people who are brought this suit including trump's department of justice is indeed trying to set a precedents a baseless precedent that i might add because this same justice department has no problems with the fact that harvard yale up to 33 percent of their acceptance is come from so-called legacy students whose parents and grandparents went to that school as a matter of fact we've had presidents including george w. bush who didn't have the greatest grades who was still accepted into yale university as a c. student even john f. kennedy who didn't have great grades it is said was accepted to harvard university because his grandfather attended the school and what i would. recommend for the troubled ministration to look at is that in fact the people who have benefited the most from affirmative action programs are in fact white women followed closely behind by asian people. trump may actually be helping people who he would be looking to to continue his presidency coming up in the upcoming election idea that
5:22 pm
academia has been discriminating against white and asian students has been an open secret since i was in college which is longer ago than i care to admit don't get me wrong i believe that if that systemic discrimination is happening it is wrong but the answer to the problem is not further discrimination and frankly i think it is insulting to black students and to a spandex suit and to imply that they need to be given a leg up because of their race that they're not for some reason able to gain admittance just through the merit of their marks we are so used to the culture of political correctness we've almost become numb to the fact that this is just blatant racial discrimination i mean under the current system it would be totally possible for for example barack obama's daughters even though they have grown up with a huge amount of privilege to gain preference in admission policy over either a white or an asian student who grew up in food stamps just because of their race and if people are still defending
5:23 pm
a system like that then i don't know what to tell them at this point. crowds of again rallied in russia's far east calling for the release of a local governor who was jailed 3 months ago. but i think there. was a heavy security presence and $25.00 people were detained so gay for girl was replaced as governor after being taken into custody into law on suspicion of ordering 3 murders his supporters say the case is politically motivated. north korea's held lavish celebrations to mark the ruling party's 75th anniversary after a 2 hour ceremony and parade in pyongyang a new intercontinental ballistic missile was unveiled weapons shrouded in mystery with foreign analyst speculating over its possible that the nazi to carry nuclear warheads. massive wildfires are sweeping through syria fueled by high winds and searing heat fire crews have been pushed to the limits of the military stepped in to help the efforts hundreds of acts as
