12:02 am
a new daily high despite that president trump a sort of put across the message that all is well celebrating the positive news that 4800000 people went back to work last month taking the unemployment rate down to 11 point one percent but he neglected to point out that only 7 and a half 1000000 of the 22000000 people who've lost their jobs since the pandemic hit a back in work. this is not just luck what's happening this is a lot of talent all of this incredible news is the result of historic actions my administration has taken working with our partners in congress to rescue the u.s. economy from a horrible event that was formed took place in china and came here and they could have stopped it they could have stopped it. nobody likes to write that but they could have stopped it they know it and i know that mike hanna joins us live from washington d.c. mike president trying to scale the keen to convey the message that all is well

here is president continues to insist that this will all kind of disappears as late as phrase on the coronavirus pandemic this is a position that he's adopted since it began you heard there again president trump blaming china for what happened taking no notice of what critics point out is incredibly lax testing procedures which continue to this day no contract tracing a fictive contact tracing that is on a federal level so certainly the trump administration according to many it must be held accountable for this new in the pandemic as well as you see a number of states reporting massive increases the texas governor ordering the mandates 3 wearing off mosques along with a number of other states and are reminded too that people like vice president pence and other republicans did not wear masks in public until the death toll was passed
12:04 am
120000 but to give you some idea as well of how serious this is hospitalized patients in california for example increased by 50 percent over the past 2 weeks now the presidential candidate joe biden has his own words to say about the trumpet ministrations performance this is what he says. we're still though nearly 15000000 jobs in the pen demick is getting worse not better and don't have to millions of americans are still out of work wondering when or if their job will come back or worried about how to pay the bills in the meantime trump wants to declare his health crisis over another employment. unfortunately he's deadly wrong on both fronts we've already had more than 128000 dead the number keeps climbing that's a direct consequence of valentine's bungle leadership in the total mismanagement of
12:05 am
this crisis from the start. and my guess is a mixed picture on the jobs front as well as the handling of the virus. indeed yes will president trump saying that the increase in employment over the last months is a sign that the economy as he puts it is roaring back from the pandemic well not quite the number of people who have been reemployed are still not know in near the amount of those who actually lost their jobs during this particular pandemic so unemployment remains at a historic high president trump attempting to put the best face on it continuing to insist as you heard from the presidential candidate joe biden there that this is all going to go away at some stage that unemployment is dropping that increased employment is a sign that the commie is recovering well many observers believe that this is not
12:06 am
the case critics to continue contend that president trump is in denial and let's just take a look at one particular fact for example president trump is going to go ahead with a fireworks display friday at mount rushmore in south dakota and nobody knows social distancing the local authorities say there will be 7 and a half 1000 people there crammed together president trump most likely will not be wearing a mask many of them public may not be wearing a mask even at the stage when the pandemic is spiking in so many u.s. states the president of the country continues to send out a message that health officials say is exceedingly dangerous mike hanna thank you very much well months into the pandemic hundreds of nurses in california demanding more personal protection equipment and fair conditions they formed a picket at a hospital in one of the counties hit hardest by the outbreak already took place on
12:07 am
day 7 of a 10 day strike nurses say the influx of coronavirus patients means they have to work longer shifts without breaks they want the union and hospital to agree better conditions. thank you. for everything i know this is. good is not any. good. and save me not just. me but you can see that i did it only. because i was. good the let me. get a good deal. tensions are growing again between the world's 2 largest economies this time over hong kong the u.s. senate has followed the house in approving new sanctions over china's decision to impose a harsh security law in the city the bill aims to penalize banks doing business with chinese officials who have implemented the new legislation will now be sent to
12:08 am
president donald trump for approval trying his government has faced world wide criticism over the security law which critics say dismantles hong kong's special freedoms house speaker nancy pelosi has condemned the arrests of protesters in hong kong there's a real tragedy and it's so sad but in the congress in the house and in the senate. in a very unified way it we have all worked together it has been a for me a joy to be bonding with my colleagues on both sides both sides of capitol on this very important issue and the republicans have been there every step of the way i hope the president will be. one of hong kong's most prominent democracy activist has fled the city nation or says he's gone overseas because of china's tough new national security legislation is vowed to continue his work abroad but hasn't revealed his current location thousands of people who protested against the law which could jail people for life on charges of secession subversion terrorism and
12:09 am
collusion with foreign forces. meanwhile china has warned the u.k. and others to stay out of its affairs following criticism of the new security law but in hong kong where it's already been used to arrest protesters there are concerns that the way it was written means it's open to abuse if you'll pardon reports from hong kong. then uli enacted national security law has already been used against some of the thousands of protesters who defied warnings and took to the streets on july the 1st the 23rd anniversary of the handover from british colonial rule many are questioning the legislations reach and how it's going to be enforced chinese president xi jinping passed the law after it was drafted in record time in beijing hong kong's legislative councilors legal experts and academics who would normally be involved in writing the law saw the text for the 1st time after it was an acted legislative council and barrister tanya chan is concerned that the
12:10 am
law could be open to interpretation by police and prosecutors based on the chinese national security law national security covers a very wide range of activities including something related to economy religion. education media internet all these things will be included the law targets crimes defined as subversion sedition terrorism and collusion with foreign powers with the maximum penalty of life in prison you know all bunkum needs national security law to suppress those troublemakers those traitors i believe we need the national security law to stay prosperous hong kong and the chinese government say the law is necessary to restore order in the special administrative region where anti-government street protests made the headlines worldwide the government and parts of the business sector have been trying to rally support for the new law saying it will bring stability to the city in fact the floating banner
12:11 am
behind me celebrates the enactment of the law but there are concerns that it could put the city status as an international financial center at risk at least $27.00 countries have echoed concerns that hong kong's freedoms and rule of law are at risk britain's prime. the legislation is a serious breach of the 1997 handover agreement which guaranteed freedom and autonomy for 50 years and china's warning of consequences if the british government changes overseas passport rules to offer a path to citizenship for nearly half of hong kong's population. we reiterate that hong kong affairs of china's internal affairs and foreign countries have no right to interfere for many in hong kong it's a new era one which brings the way they're governed and the legal system closer to the rest of china the bigger poland our desire of hong kong the former partner of

as cotto gabriel is under in new york to tell us more about the circumstances of the arrest and the charges michael faces. well her arrest was unexpected quite frankly there was no warning that this was going to be happening at all she's been basically out in hiding for about the last year or so nobody knew exactly where she was there was rumors she was at her home in london perhaps in living in paris or on the west coast the united states it turns out that the f.b.i. says they've been tracking her for many months now and made the arrest at a rural part of the in the state of new hampshire about 2 hours north of boston she was arrested without in any sort of problems. and she saw her 1st court appearance was it a magistrate judge in new hampshire in the last couple hours where she waived her bail hearing right and will now be transferred to a jail here in new york city where she will face another judge now prosecutors say
12:14 am
that she has 3 passports has access to millions of dollars and she is a flight risk and so prosecutors are going to be arguing with the judge here in manhattan to deny her any sort of bail to keep her in jail until a potential trial now basically she's been saying for a long time that she was simply a friend and business associate of jeffrey epstein for many years however after hearing what the prosecutors said on thursday they said her relationship with him was much more sinister than that and that she recruited young women as young as 14 years old to be a sexual partners with him and others now maxwell faces 6 federal counts too for perjury for lying to investigators too for conspiracy and 2 counts for entice sing and transporting under age women for sex and given we mentioned prince andrew what
12:15 am
could all this mean for him. potentially could mean a lot and this is why there. it's been well known that prince andrew had some connections to maxwell and epstein in fact there's a photograph of prince andrew in 2001 with maxwell and a young woman in the photo the young woman in that particular photo claims that maxwell traffic her. to prince andrew prince andrew has vehemently denied that and the night he did has done anything wrong however he has relinquished his his royal duties if you will but when the prosecutors were asked about prince andrew's connection to this at the press conference on thursday they said we won't get into details but they said we welcome him to come and speak to us and cooperate with our investigation prosecutors here in the u.s. say so far prince andrew has failed to cooperate gave his own to thank you very

a new license and extending your speculations and try to begin a process of reforming and regulating the industry unfortunately despite the new law and policy that they're developing we continue to see the government's inability to regulate the environmental and social impacts of mining sector remains controlled by our whole armed groups the military itself and crony companies which are operating outside of the control of the government. the miners who died have braved the bad weather. disaster again struck the end was secretive and you could have trade priyanka gupta all to 0. global outrage against police brutality has also gained traction in india where 4 officers have been arrested over the deaths of a father and son the family of j.j. raj and bendix emmanuel says they died after being tortured in police custody they were detained for keeping their shop open during

a coronavirus lockdown in the southern state of tamil nadu the death sparked anger across india and a social media campaign calling for justice. police across europe have arrested hundreds of crime gang members after hacking into an encrypted network which gave them a goldmine of information more than 750 people were arrested by offices in britain alone with the country's national crime agency calling the operation its biggest ever challenge are reports called. her. current king apart criminal networks police across the u.k. have made hundreds of arrests of the infiltrating an encrypted phone system used by suspected top 2 criminals they've seized guns drugs and cash amounting to millions of dollars during the course of the operation which is obviously built on by the n.c.a.a. regional and police for says we have arrested so far $746.00 individuals we've
12:24 am
seized over $77.00 firearms for hungry unaids just under 2 tons of drugs which is where 80000000 pounds on the streets and we see over 54000000 pounds of criminal cash so it is a massive law enforcement operation unsuccess. the operation began when french police hacked into a highly encrypted messaging platform found on the spoke and project phones the system was used 560000 people worldwide 10000 of them in britain soon it became a massive cross border investigation there was an investigation opened in france. targeting. the system of providing encrypted from nation to its criminals there was a criminal investigation started that had direct a lot of international relations so that's the reason why it was formed between friends and the evidence but your stand your poll. operation of an attic launched
12:25 am
in april involved every police force in britain. in some raids offices use stun guns to arrest suspects involved in drugs and arms trafficking the national crime agency says it also prevented the murder of several people who were the targets of rival gangs. these are not petty criminals but the kingpins of organized crime the so-called untouchables often living lavish lifestyles on the proceeds of crime and police say there are more arrests to come. which is seen as a security expert and chief research analyst at harvest he joins us via skype from birmingham in michigan thanks very much for being with us so it seems like quite a coup for these various police forces simply brilliant can't think of another case pulling together an operations so quickly and so technically so well just growing it gives an idea of how they would have managed to infiltrate what do you not quite a sophisticated to encryption service. yes so once you know that the
12:26 am
service is being imposed you might have already infiltrated the gangs and know their operations and how they use the phones then it's a matter of one getting in implant out of the phones and there are some commercial products that are sold out there was an israeli company called the n.s.o. group that does just that for law enforcement and several other and maybe. the intelligence community says got involved and provided some of their ability to hack into these android based phones and then you have to push that application to them so there's a vulnerability in the phone you can do that magically sometimes or if you got the telecom provider and evidently there was one in the netherlands that was the major provider for. encroach at. if you can get them to cooperate then they can push an update or you know push the stealthy piece of malware basically and it seems
12:27 am
that they could be carried on spying on the criminals for quite some time and have gathered to what's what seems like at what they said is a kind of a game changer in terms of amount of evidence yeah i've read from bice reporting that they've got millions of conversations check conversations with details are speaking completely openly thinking that they're completely not subject to being spied on so they've got you know just the kind of evidence that the police force would need they've got names places dates crimes that they can associate with the people who are commanding them or orchestrating moments it's a dream for a prosecutor doesn't set a precedent you think into in terms of prioritizing the technical side of fighting against crime. yeah i think that was already in place it was 10 years ago at the head of the new york city police department made the statement that every crime is a cyber crime meaning that there was a cell phone involved so i think over the last decade most of the detective forces
12:28 am
those trying to solve crimes that have occurred there are very familiar with tracing phones tapping them you know getting warrants to do so. so it's an ongoing escalation and this is a perfect case for them because all of the these criminals were very trusting of a single service put all the eggs in one basket yeah i suppose that's one thing that i guess one of the criminals will learn from this i suppose as well when they were and presumably their pleasure all the platforms out there that they can use yeah lots of platforms or they get device their own using the shelf software and that's probably going to be the result of us not you know there won't be 60000 criminals all using the same network you know here i am thinking about a defender against the types of attacks here. but the you know what happened is
12:29 am
a classic case of whether you burn your sources which the lot of porcelain did right so now it's out there that this phone is not to be trusted their brand such as it was as completely destroyed as to. be hard for that organization that company to come back from the dead which is tim thank you very much indeed taffeta want to thank you thanks. what's more still to come this hour including how a judge in london may have ended the venezuelan president hopes of a gold rush. mexico's president promises to get tough on gang violence the shocking new attack shows the scale of the problem he faces. and in sport we take a look at how little pools senegalese superstar study of money is inspiring a new generation of footballers and his country.

12:37 am
bridge over the river southern cross it's a move to a different country inside the united kingdom and it is genuinely striking how different rules seem to have led to different outcomes because while the infection and death rates in england are refusing to go away in wales there are now close to 0. we have to remember that. significantly disproportionately affects the area deadly and the mortality rate sadly in that age group is higher therefore we do all expect to see cases but i'd like to see we go down to see all cases ready some by the time the virus was at large in england wales had begun preparing the to meet a rule which is being dropped in england from this weekend remains in force here it's also been forbidden for months for anyone to travel more than 5 miles from home while london is full of traffic again this is the center of the welsh capital cardiff outside the government offices part of this clearly is about the rules another part acceptance of them and people's behavior in wales and indeed in
12:38 am
scotland where the daily death rates is now effectively 0 people seem to be much more willing to abide by the lock down than they were in england. that was most visible in the recent heatwave which saw one police of all numbers of people descend on the south coast of england the beautiful beaches of south wales by contrast have seen very little of the kind selina runs a company here which helps rent holiday cottage is the lockdown has almost destroyed her business but she still supports what the government has done she's more worried about english people coming over the summer and breaking the rules in wales ideally if they could put signs over the him fall you know what road works ahead but remember we are 2 metres distance seen as they drive in into wales anything like that i think to help the the visitors understand that we are operating in a different law governments are being judged over their response boris johnson's is not being seen as being on top of things in wales you can hardly find anyone with
12:39 am
a bad word to say about their 1st minister it's about messaging you know my message in wales is always about doing this carefully about doing it cautiously about taking one step at a time in never forgetting the coronaviruses here and could come back whereas the messaging across the border has sometimes been led by a sense to a wish to sort it say to people it is all over you could do what you like i just don't think that messaging is sensible at all only next week will wales begin to allow english people to cross the border into their country and if things get worse in england it might not sustain and there's nothing boris johnson can do about it the virus is leading to reputations being made and being broken lawrence lee al jazeera in south wales the venezuelan government has reversed its order to expel the ambassador from the e.u. the foreign minister tweeted that it was to avoid hindering dialogue with the e.u. but said he expected quote objective gestures in return president nicolas maduro

curbing violence a claim that national homicide statistics don't seem to back up. a disingenuous on the part of the president to suggest that we're seeing tangible progress and not respect all the signs are that actually the security environment is deteriorating of course there are some trying. for a day a current federal administration but i think it's pretty clear situation is getting worse. experts believe that we're seeing violence in one of those could in part be the result of escalating turf wars between rival organized criminal groups exacerbated by the ongoing $900.00 pandemic. below al jazeera mexico city. hundreds of elephants have been found dead in botswana and nobody knows why the carcasses were 1st brought lying on their sides while others had collapsed face

down in the okavango delta poaching has. been ruled out because their tasks were still intact a national park rescue charity says more than 400 have died calling it one of the biggest disasters to affect an offense this century what's one as government has only confirmed $275.00 deaths so far the country has the world's largest elephant population and the only cannot make anything up on joins us now from cardiff he's a director of conservation per national park rescue which is and the organization i just mentioned fish focuses on preventing the slaughter of elephants rhinos and lions in sub-saharan africa thanks for being with us so how unusual is it i see these kind of numbers of elephants dying in this way is totally unprecedented especially outside of the drought season so you might expect to see it die off happening when there's real lack of water or lack of food the providers in flood the moment and for something like this to happen which is either a disease or a toxin of some form is completely obvious that it seems that abuts want to say
12:46 am
that they've collected samples and they sent them off to south africa zimbabwe and canada for testing but until those results come back or other any ideas about what could be causing the deaths we're all speculating there's a lot of speculation going on as as you mentioned 'd coaching has be ruled out but we haven't ruled out that it was a poison laid by poachers so they're certainly not being shot but it's a possibility that this of course there are some form there's also a possibility that it's a natural toxin something occurring in the soil of the water or that it's a disease or some form until those results come back within the whys and how many elephants are there in the area in that area there's over 15000 which is more than 10 percent of the population of botswana which in turn has one 3rd of the population left on the whole continent so in terms of conservation this is potentially absolutely devastating. and i mean you mentioned that the potential perhaps for poisoning was that an offense was a popular with with some people but not everyone and perhaps from as
12:47 am
a 1st time has or the numbers rise and been unhappy with them is that a potential area of investigation it's certainly worth ruling out but i suspect that this isn't farmers i can't be sure about that but this area is really quite remote and some of the our guys in places that are very long way away from where people are there's no road access at all so my suspicion is that it's something that's either occurring naturally or it's approaches that have come across from from zambia or laid off or poison time will tell and what i'm more kind of dangerous option if it is some sort of disease and i will kill you in the midst of a human pandemic civil then what about something but if it is a disease what impact would it have on the on those actions or the global population and well i think you've made the point is that we're currently living through a pandemic of a global disease which started in wildlife that has made its way into people and we know that kobe don't seem to make its way back from people into animals as well as done so in cats in big cats in new york and also in mid level and so there's
12:48 am
a possibility for there's a lot of transfer from elephants back into people but even if it does stay within that of the population as botswana has one 3rd of all the elephants on the continent the potential for this having a truly catastrophic impact on the population is very real you know mccann thank you very much indeed to have your expertise thank you thank you for having me election officials say voters in russia have overwhelmingly approved changes which clear the way for vladimir putin to hold power until 2036 results show almost 78 percent of people backed a package of changes to the constitution which also included raising pensions and a minimum wage will allow the president to serve 2 more terms in office after his current one expires government critics say the vote was rigged it has been office for 20 years and could now will until he's 83 years old. still ahead this news hour big news for tennis fans about this year's french open that's coming up and
