6:02 pm
crossed the border irregularly, passing a law last month, allowing illegal migrants to be pushed back. critics have slammed the move, calling it an abuse of you and international law. oh, a my never going on. i wonder what portal hope you remember? a local journalist, you know her took reports from the makeshift camp on the border, giving us the latest details on the situation. of course, we are now at the valley roost, poland border. he, you can see
6:03 pm
a huge camp for refugees who want to get to europe from better roost. up roberts, on the right van russian forest intent. were you on the left, the polish border, barbed wire, and the polish military. according to banner russian border guards there at least $2500.00 migrants. they started to arrive this morning at around 10 a. m. large groups of 510200 people traveled along the road to the forest and then came here to the polish border through the forest roads. but no, could the main floor of migrants ended at around one p. m. some arrived here by taxi, some by public transport, all of them and to get into poland and say there's no way back for them. they say they got hair and taurus pieces by play. they arrive from different cities, minsk, grodner,
6:04 pm
and breast. they agreed on the date and place using the telegram messenger app. it's now evenings and they're even more migrant. they're constantly arriving the campus set up really close to the border with some of the tents. a set up right next to polish territory. on the pony site, there were a lot of police, military personnel and equipment. they also brought water cannon, the migrant say they will stay here until they get to poland. they've let bonfires set up, 10 brought food with them, but not a lot. all of them have long clothes with them. we also see here a lot of families with small children, children aged to 3 years old summer even younger. all of them are determined to stay here. today, they will stay here for the night. of course, popular oliver has more details on the escalating border situation. in fact, the polish president under a do there is currently in a meeting with the prime minister, mateusz motivates and security leaders as well and emergency meeting being cold as
6:05 pm
things escalated all border with bellow roofs. throughout monday, we saw the tree trunk being used of battering ram to try and get through the board offense. there. there were people with ply, isms, wyatt courses of some kind, trying to cut through the barbed wire as they were being sprayed with pet. this frayed almost point blank range from 4 to god, just over the other side, one guy using a spade to try and beat down barbed wire as well right in front. so throws those border defense troops. now, extra troops had been sent by poland to that from caea. 12000 extra troops called up a state of emergencies currently in play in poland because of the flow of people trying to get from bella to get from bella to poland. but state of emergency last to 3 months. now the bell rush and boarded guards of actually put out a statement in which they said that the polish side are attempting to inflame the
6:06 pm
situation. taking into account statements by polish officials on the concentration of armed forces and equipment near the border, we do not exclude the possibility of provocative actions by the polish side and justifying the use of physical force and special equipment against refugees, or the spy that statement. it's hard to see what poland would start to gain from inflaming the situation any further elsewhere in europe though a lot of focus is also turning towards this border here in germany, the interior ministry has said that they will be actively pushing for more sanctions on bellow. roofs over this incident, in the escalation of this incident, they won't those sanctions to target things like airlines that have been used in order to bring migrants from the middle east, mostly to valerie. and then from bella roost from arriving in belarus. they've made their way to the polish border at nato. have also put out a statement saying that minsk and alexander lucas shanker, the, the bell,
6:07 pm
russian president, a, using these migrant says what they call it a hybrid tactic in or in response to sanctions that have already been placed on beller roost. they add the nato alliance, going on to say that they found this unacceptable. now, the german foreign ministry did previously put out a statement in which they said they have proof that alexander lucas shanker is directly linked to driving, migrants towards this border. the situation continues to be of utmost concern to us . we observe how the look of shanker regime continues to call migrants to bell roofs and send them on a dangerous journey towards the e. u. there is evidence that the regime in minsk constantly directs people to the border or the beller, as president denies any involvements in pushing people towards the boundary with poland walks. alexander lucas shanker has said is that his country can't afford to look after migrants that are there saying that the sanctions that have been put in
6:08 pm
place on beller is already by the european union of crippled it financially. i honestly said that we wouldn't hold any more of the people you've been screwing over in afghanistan, iran and iraq. we have neither the money know the strength to do so as a result of your sanctions. while lithuania also getting involved, as this really turns from being an issue between poland and bela bruce into an issue involving the wider european union lithuania, saying that they would send troops to the polish fellowship border and that they may well be looking at declaring a state of emergency in their country as well. in french police officer has been attacked with a knife in the southern city of can authority say his bullet proof vest saved him from any serious injuries. the incident is now being investigated as a possible terrorist attack. are too strong, davinsky reports to 6 30 am local time. this attack was carried out. we understand the police officer was in
6:09 pm
a vehicle just outside his police station and the attacker opened the door of the car and then attempted to stab the officer to deck. now we understand that the officer survived without any injuries. thanks to his bullet proof vest, but we do understand from sources on the ground that while that attack was attempted, the aggressor shouted that this was being done in the name of the muslim prophet. now we understand that a colleague of that police officer who was attacked aimed fire straight away at the attack, it severely injuring them and they are now are said to be severely injured and being treated for that. we understand that the attack, it is a 37 year old, are with the original nationality of being algerian. and he said to have been unknown to the police before this incident. but because of the fact that the
6:10 pm
aggressor said that this attack was in the name of them was in prophet muhammad, this is not being treated as a possible terror incident here in france. now this is not the 1st time we have seen an attack of this nature here in france just in april this year. so not too many months ago, a police officer administrative worker was stabbed to death just inside the secure area of a police station who hadn't booley, which is not too far from paris. and then in may, so less than a month later, there was another attempt on the life of a police officer at this time, leaving that opposite severely wounded at that took place in the city of north in western france. so we do get these attacks from time to time and back in 2019 october a radically i t employee over the police station in paris, a killed 3 police officers and an administrative. okay, what was a terror attack back then? one of the worst attacks in sight,
6:11 pm
a police station where that took place now from milking the pen from the natural valley who trunks. she seems to be certain that these attacks are becoming what she described as being normalized. i get the impression that these kinds of crimes are becoming usual as if it's some form of habit. i urge the french people not to get used to the situation. now france has been suffering from a wave of violence in the last decade and attacks like this sharpened, the idea of people fearing that they could be further islamic attacks like the ones we saw back in 2015. but for the moment, this appears to be a lone wolf attack. it is being to treat it as a possible terrorist in soon to 37 year old man said to be of an algerian origin is not being treated for severe injuries after it's tempting to stab a police officer in can on monday morning the by the administration's push for mandatory cove vaccinations has exposed
6:12 pm
a sharp divide in the us over the weekend and appeals court temporarily blocked the government's job requirement for businesses. but that did not stop people from protesting. oh, i think the contested mandate would apply to businesses with at least $100.00 employees. vaccines are all ready, obligatory for public officials. it comes at a time of high infection rates, averaging around $73000.00 per day in the us, despite the federal appeals court freezing, the private sector requirement. the surgeon general insists the measures are needed . the person in the administration wouldn't have put these requirements in place if they didn't think that they were appropriate and necessary,
6:13 pm
and the administration is certainly prepared to defend them for all those promises of healing. biden's america has become, intend to box rife with anger and division, and the latest vaccine mandate was just the thing to spark the fire. this mandate is unconstitutional, unlawful and unwise sir biden vaccine. monday is a shocking invasion of medical privacy and individual liberty. i will not stand for it. i am exploring every legal option to defend the rights of north caroline and against this unconstitutional mandate with president by to plan to mandate oxidation in the u. s. companies with over 100 employees. more than 2 dozen states have now come out swinging, determined to protect the rights of 84000000 workers, but was extraordinary, was up buried in red, was a blue state, new hampshire. and among the attorney general's who filed a new suit was a democrat from iowa. this was no longer from protest on the street. this is no
6:14 pm
longer about loyalty to one's party. this was the country big guns from both sides of the aisle coming out proclaiming we the people say no. a court has now frozen the mandate nationwide. that's concerned, it's an overreach. what about individual liberty? what about the constitution? what's about a precedence? promise? no, i don't think it should be mandatory. i wouldn't demand to be mandatory, but i would do everything in my power just like i don't think mask have to be made mandatory nationwide and do everything in my power as president stage to encourage people to do the right thing. turns out that the man who didn't believe and mandates has turned into a big fan of them for the federal employees and now for private ones, heads mosque up, get job done. you might be out of the job. now you think that being food by more than half the country states would dump in your spirits, but no, the white house is still feeling good. said the,
6:15 pm
just the administration over the next thing, the requirement for workers or companies. i'd like to get your response to that and also how confident are you to disconnect date and what's a so we are very confident that it can now, biden insists he's acting according to international medical guidance. the vaccine is the only way out of the pandemic. if you shed by many, but the timing is bad. discussions of to job will not have reached fever pitch. mm. from california to mississippi, angry citizens have flaunted the streets something they'll never vote democrat again, others that they'd rather be unemployed than give out that freedom's. then you look
6:16 pm
at the recent elections, a litmus test of the bite and presidency. the democrats took a beating and what many say is a bad omen for the mid tom's next year? it's been a bumpy few months and for some that's just one person to play. nobody likes to seem to be franklin d, roosevelt. they'll act as him to be normal and sub the kaos. you know, under his administration, the cdc said that anybody who's vaccinated shouldn't wear a mask, and then they did the hokey pokey and said no, no, you do up to where mass they have said that boosters were not necessarily going to be thing and mandates not going necessarily going to be a thing and now we have both boosters and mandate. so if he goes back on this, it will, i think, a road, some of the confidence that biden came in with, remember, he was partly elected because he was the adult in the room. he was somebody for whom was a political veteran that would not see a new problem and therefore would be able to handle it better than the bull in the
6:17 pm
china shop that donald trump was. if he doesn't show com, even handed leadership on this, and i don't think he particularly has on this or many other things. then he's going to continue to see his approval rating a road like it is right now when it's under water, by nearly 10 points. the white house at odds with the states, the republicans taking on the democrats. so, democrats timing on caliber and the facts surrounding on the and faxed, like i said, for all those promises of healing and looks like it's a long johnny to the united states living up to its name. so there is still plenty of disagreement over enforcement of mandatory covered shots. reminder, the world health organization stresses that vaccinations and natural immunity are the only route out of the pandemic. now the sleeve scandal that has embroiled as a british government shows no sign of abating prime minister boys. johnson was absent from today's emergency session of parliament, citing prior engagements. it was called after his tory party voted to review
6:18 pm
lobbying rules rather than punish one of their own for breaking them. the head of the opposition party cure star, didn't pull his punches. last week the prime minister damaged himself, but most importantly, he damaged our democracy. and now today, he does not even have the decency to come here either to defend what he did or to apologize for his action. while all things of blame are now being directly pointed at boris johnson, the prime minister over these sleeves allegations for not only defending the former and p, o n. pattison, for his alleged role in all of this government corruption, but also by apparently trying to brush it all onto the carpet. in fact, some tory menaces have described as simply a storm and a tea cup. that's very much the argument being presented almost by boris jones in the prime minister was hoping to allow. i've been practicing to simply get away
6:19 pm
with a slap on the wrist. and today, he's even be accused of running scared because of course, forest johnson was simply nowhere to be seen in the house of commons. apparently he's far too busy, but that of course has been interpreted by many as simply not being important enough of an issue for the prime minister. in fact, there was ferocious attacks on the government and bars. johnson, specifically at today from many m p. 's saying that parliament's reputation is being tarnished and that it's integrity is at stake. the actions of the government last week, half tarnished this house is reputation. we were not ruled by a prime minister, who was a 10 point dictator. and who is it himself, is now mired in sleep. the government has been playing the ridiculous game with the public trust. the government made a decision last week to do something which undermined trust and democracy at every level locally. ready and he should have to remind the government that being an m p 's
6:20 pm
a full time job chasing corporate cash is quite simply short. changing the public isn't the real concern that the government's attitude towards public appoint. yes. is straying away from the rules as overseen by the commission of public appointments or politics have been taken to a very, very top please. many people really feel that the tory government simply trying to change the rules when they don't really suit them. of course, it was all prompted by the case of the form m p. now, o and patterson. last week he was found to have broken the rules by being a paid consultant to at least 2 companies, paying him for more than a $100000.00 pounds a year. now just last week, the government try to block a 30 day suspension of the m p and rip up the common disciplinary process entirely . instead though it you turned on all of that and as a result, patterson resigned, doesn't m p. but following that, 247 tory m p 's voted to set up
6:21 pm
a new committee. but it's a bit more complicated than just setting up a body. what exactly are they going to be questioning? it's things like should n p's have 2nd jobs? what kind of jobs are they allowed to have? how much, of course, can they and, and also, how do people end up with seats in the house of lords and who makes those decisions . and on what basis? because of course, this isn't the 1st time the tory party has been accused of giving corruption. the green light just take the pandemic. a for a stop has been those corona virus contracts, holidays not pro, properly being declared on the funding of number 10 refurbishment. that's just to name a very few. so today is really wanting to prove that the current system needs to be reformed. and the m. p. 's ultimately should not be making up their own rules as they go along. iraq's prime minister claims he knows who tried to kill him and has pledged to expose the culprits. on sunday, several drones bombed the premier's residence in bagdad security as being ramped up
6:22 pm
with helicopters flying over the capital and army vehicles deployed on the streets . extra forces have also been sent to the green zone where the prime minister's residence is located. here's some of the damage left by the drone bombing, which came it days after deadly riots condemning of the parliamentary election, widely denounced as rigged. 7 security guards were wounded in the drone incident which interior ministry called a terrorist attack. however, the opposition is suggesting may have been a provocation by the government to justify a crackdown. united states was the 1st country to condemned. the alleged attempt on the pm's life at a time when the remaining american combat forces are leaving iraq. which eager to don off, comments now on the parallels between what's unfolding in iraq and what has played out in afghanistan. there's riots, there's tear gas, there's life gunfire. iraq continues its descent into security chaos. following the latest parliamentary vote
6:23 pm
ah, iraq's intelligence headquarters is shelled. it's pro american prime minister is targeted by a grown assassination attempt. this is what's left of his home in the most secure haven of baghdad. the attempt that got washington very anxious. we are following the reports. a drone attack. this apparent act of terrorism which was strong, weakened them, was directed at the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable, the united states sense with the government and people of iraq. all this just over a month since america started to withdraw its combat forces from the country. and the pullout has already vote some morbid flashbacks in the white house to this day, the withdrawal from afghanistan is tanking jo biden's political school. yet the
6:24 pm
president found of no better time to embark on a similar mission just in iraq. i think things are going well or role in iraq is just to be available to continue to train to assist to help them to deal with isis . right. but we are not going to be brought in here. and america's relationship with iraq has been eerily similar to the one with of gaston security forces, fully equipped and trained by american specialists, pro washington leadership, a whole generation of locals who don't remember their lives without us forces in the country forces that invaded under the pretext of hunting down bad guys. all these statements apply perfectly to both of gaston and iraq countries turned by the us into test sites for its nations building ambitions. our mission in iraq is clear,
6:25 pm
were hunting down the terrace, were helping iraqis build a free nation. that is an ally in the war on terror. we know that true peace will only be achieved when we give the afghan people the means to achieve their own aspirations. peace, peace will be achieved by helping afghanistan develop its own stable government. osama, bin laden escaped american bounty hunters by adding to pakistan. the infamous anthro exclaims, and saddam hussein's links to the $911.00 attacks turned out to be fake news. the u . s. military found itself bogged down in nations in tatters, to decades on as it prepares to pull out statements of reassurance. come out of washington. the very same old song had during the african withdrawal iraq essential to the u. s. vision for a stable me to least iraq is not have gone stand. where here for the long term with you, iraq is
6:26 pm
a key strategic partner. and we're committed to this partnership world cobbled, succumb to the taliban in a matter of days. no, not a single us intelligence agency saw that coming. or that doesn't provide much backing to the claims that the true pull out from iraq this time will end up just fine. i still is already taking advantage of the strain security capability of the taliban rule in afghanistan. iraq is isolate cradle. nobody wants to see another nation in the region crumble under the weights of a decades long string of poor choices make thousands of miles away. killing of a palestinian boy and the west bank has fired up a local resentment over is really settlements and mass evictions. the 13 year old boy was shot by idea of soldiers on friday after writers threw stones at troops during clashes, amberly's correspondent,

6:28 pm
and here is the table where he used to work really hot. he said himself, a goal of 87 percent for his school work. and here he has a note himself that says he must fight hard for your dreams. this is the necklace that he was wearing when he was killed and it has the pictures of family members, some of whom were killed in the conflict with israel. hammond had caliah, i am and from the feeling cannot be described. it is very hard, but always prays to god them this, he was everything to me. it was bahamas. wanted to become a journalist and he was working towards it. that was his dream fiddle upset like any young palestinian that sees on t v. the destruction caused by the occupying forces. the desire is there to defend the homeland palestine and the alex and mosque. any palestinian is subject to something happening while defending holy sites. god has chosen him to be a martin. of course they were targeted on purpose. this happens all the time in palestinian cities,
