tv   NEWSHOUR  Al Jazeera  July 30, 2020 6:00pm-7:01pm +03

6:00 pm
this clips and the talking points are pretty intense if it can forge narratives all right from the listening post gives you the full picture on a. plane important for all. ringback this is al-jazeera. but on the clock this is the news our life coming up in the next 60 minutes and battered by a pandemic the u.s. economy suffers its biggest downturn since 1940 s. the job queues get longer. donald trump suggested laying november's presidential elections over what he says is concern that smell in voting will result in fraud.
6:01 pm
pro-democracy candidates disqualified from hong kong's local elections and students arrested for online posts in the beijing's new security. suspected russian mercenaries are detained in bel air routes to queues of trying to disrupt an upcoming film. and on a mission to search for signs of life in space because mars rover blast off from florida heading for the red planet. i'm going to guess rosco with the sport saudi arabian investors pull out of a bid to buy new cars so united up to months of premier league scrutiny. so there's more proof of the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic with the united states. being its worst economic slump since the 940 s.
6:02 pm
its economy has shrunk at the fastest pace on record that is down 9.5 percent between april and june and in the past week another 1400000 people have applied for jobless benefits the same time europe's biggest economy that's germany has plunged into recession shrinking by a record 10 percent of the pandemics wiped out nearly a decade of growth and now the u.s. president donald trump who's talked of the strength of his country's economy is asking whether november's election should be perspire and. let's go straight to our white house grounds but it can be home to study by the in washington so they can be a spectacular decline in the united states. yeah her industry numbers for a president trying to win reelection on the strength of the economy there were historically low unemployment numbers early on in this president's term here at the oval office but that's all been wiped out and also some of the gains under barack
6:03 pm
obama also now gone as a result of coded 19 now just about these numbers into perspective this 32.9 plunging of the g.d.p. that's a u.s. specific number it's a big headline of course but really we should for our international viewers 2 look at the almost 10 percent contraction in the economy just to kind of put it respective from global numbers the centrally what this is this is a contraction as a result of the shutdowns from coronavirus whether it's personal spending or restaurants job. sorry for clothing and footwear exports investments but also another number that came out this also not good news for this president is the jobless numbers claims once again taking upward from last week 1400000 more than 20000000 americans unemployed and what we're seeing in all of this is that what many thought was going to be a temporary loss is starting to look a lot more permanent right and just as we said earlier just as these figures are
6:04 pm
not talked about the possibility of spoiling the election there we read anything into the timing of this particular bomb show. a couple of things the 1st one is that this president is masterful when it comes to changing a bad headline and that's essentially what he's done in the face of these horrendous job numbers he's put out an incendiary tweet so that we're talking a little bit less about those job numbers a little bit more about his suggestion that perhaps the vote in november for the presidential election should be delayed so that's one thing that's important to note in all of this the other is that when the president makes the suggestion as outlandish as it is he doesn't have the authority to delay an election in fact that's something that really is in the hands of congress but it certainly is concerning given the fact that we're really about 95 days until that vote and in
6:05 pm
the midst of all of this there are some legitimate issues about election security whether it be mail in voting is the president's talked about i'll just read this tweet with the universal mail in voting not absentee voting which is good 2020 will be the most inaccurate fragile election in history it will be a great embarrassment to the u.s. a delay the election to people can properly securely and safely vote there are legitimate questions about election security foreign interference is one of them there are concerns about mail in voting but the suggestion that it be delayed again not something the president can do and already causing a lot of concern not just among voters but among members of congress both those who oppose the president and those who support him yet he said he knows how to get people talking about something else that could be very much indeed for the time being let's switch close to a new study by then don't think so europe's biggest economy germany of course plunging into recession shrinking by record 10 percent and the pun demographics we
6:06 pm
want to use with the group. the way to look at these figures these set this set of the latest quarterly figures is these are the worst for 50 years going back to the time of west germany so that gives you a degree of how bad this pandemic has been for the german economy but there are that's the headline from these figures but bear in mind that these quarterly figures that have been projected that they would be almost 10 percent recession anyway so that society as it were had prepared itself for this sort of blow the fact that it's a little bit more than 10 percent well that's bad and that clearly is something that will worry the economists and the ministerial circles here in berlin but they're also stressing that they believe that the measures they have taken are keeping it at that level and reducing that level of recession the economy minister
6:07 pm
is confident that the economy will rebound in 2021 that's what he was saying a few months ago when these dire project projections came out now that the realities of these figures is clear well they're not resigning from that and to give you a sense of perspective several large companies say that they are not worried right now about what might happen to the economy because they believe they've got things in hand what they're really worried about is a 2nd wave of infections here that's the uniform line from industry but also from government that's the way to see these figures right now they think they've got this in hand but they're hoping there won't be a 2nd wave of corona. thanks very much don cane life in berlin well with all of this going on the world's biggest plane maker has posted a net loss of more than $2000000000.00 in the 1st half of this year and its rival boeing announced a similar 2nd quarter loss on wednesday let's hear now from the township butler who's in paris with more on the airbus losses. terrible figures for air bus the
6:08 pm
european plane made a $2200000000.00 of net losses in the 1st 6 months of this year they've had to deliver half the amount of aircraft in the 1st half of this year that they had planned on and also in the 2nd quarter revenue tumbling by 55 percent so whatever us are saying is that they have had to cut production by 40 percent which of course have a huge impact on the company on staff across the europe who work for us all the suppliers the whole industry that is always linked to any one company and what they're saying is that this is due of course to the coronavirus pandemic the fact that during the lockdowns people pretty much didn't fly airlines were grounded and even after the restored restrictions have been lifted in some places a line travel has been severely reduced in fact us are saying their visibility for
6:09 pm
the future is very limited indeed they may not be forecasting in the short term because the airline travel industry isn't really expected to get back onto its feet at least preplanned demick levels until 20232025 so that's a long way off indeed and it's something of course that will affect as i said all these industries that are connected to the european playmakers are bad news indeed out of france today or a. run from london who is an international economist and former economic advisor to the president of the european commission the group figures all over the world. especially the united states how much do we hung on to the fact they were not quite as bones expected. but obviously these are catastrophic figures both at the u.s. and germany and indeed elsewhere but we knew that going to be catastrophic and frankly even whether it's and subject to a huge margin of error especially at this time so whether they're slightly better
6:10 pm
or worse than expectations i think is pretty much here of their what what really matters is what's happening now and what's likely to happen in the future in the future and in that respect i think that the the jobless figures from the u.s. somewhat troubling because unemployment have been falling it's now rising again and that suggests that the recovery has slowed or indeed stalled and you can see that from also from credit card spent new figures indeed from consumer confidence and you could just see that you know from the t.v. pictures where you know the likes of florida and texas are seeing a huge rise in cases where you're seeing consumers across america who are concerned for the future and so. looking looking a bit further out and what it tells you is that the the destruction that we've had from the lock downs in a sense is only a small part of our problems there is crippling uncertainty about when there's
6:11 pm
going to be here or when there's going to be a baxi in whether future lockdowns are going to be needed and what. measures consumers are going to take on their own bat of say choosing to or not to go to restaurants or to do or not to go traveling and on top of that the uncertainty about the policy response though to be in the u.s. an election year right there where one month into the 3rd quarter already in our bureau the figures we're talking about take it up to the end of june as you've alluded to so what is the sense that that will in time given everything that you've said of the of the possibilities for recovery. well i mean i think that it was pretty clear that the us was already starting to recover even within the 2nd quarter but as the 1st quarter because this month things were looking better and that things then. at that very least the rate of improvement has slowed
6:12 pm
and quite possibly an editor's thought altogether and we face a cliff and what the u.s. economy faces a cliff edge at the end of the month when some of the exceptional fiscal support measures to struggling households expire and where there's a big bump fighting in congress about whether to extend them or not with republican saying that actually this is discouraging people from working and obviously that's tied in also with the battle about election politics and unless we do see an extension or indeed further stimulus spending in the u.s. i think you could see the u.s. economy going into a double dip recession which could be you know quite a catastrophic not just for the u.s. but for the global economy and indeed obviously for our present trumps. re-election chances where there are a colossal injections of cash going on around the world least with the economies that can afford it with these trillions and trillions of dollars of stimulus
6:13 pm
packages it's crucial but how we spend that money is not so much a question of how we come back or whether we can come back at all. why partly depends on how you think things are going to pan out you know if your worries about outbreaks further outbreaks of the virus then your priority is supporting incomes and pay people to stay home if on the contrary you think that the virus is abating and sustainably then you want to be stimulating consumption and people who are currently people to go out and spend likewise if you think that basically we have to keep the economy in deep freeze then you want to pay pay people to remain in their current jobs and businesses. in ready to. produce the same at the same things where there is restart if on the other hand you think that. the economy is going through a big shift not least the shift from high street retail to armley online retail
6:14 pm
from working in offices to working from home then on the contrary you want to be encouraging that shift in encouraging businesses to shift away their work and. could workers to find new jobs i think basically. there's so much uncertainty going on it's incredibly difficult for policymakers to respond and the top priority has to be to try and exaggerate measures to find a vaccine in that respect at least at the recent news has been relatively positive rather than that's a unified effort who'd be a fine as well as the right now billy graham thanks very much salute really thank you thank you. well thirty's in the australian state of victoria a tightening look damages after a record of infections and deaths reported 723 new 1000 cases and 13 deaths the state is the epicenter of a straight a 2nd wave of the virus and nearly 10000 people have tested positive with more than
6:15 pm
300 treated in hospital mosques on monday training. we have now been in this lockdown now for some weeks and we're not getting the results we would hopeful and as a result the further measures that it certainly necessary will come at an impact to the economy we understand that but equally not can tiny price will have that effect also and so it's important we continue to work together to get on top of this and type whatever actions in its history of british prime minister burns johnson says the pandemic is slowly being brought under control there but he is warning people to keep up safety measures or risk another way. numbers of deaths oh well well done but i have to tell you that we're looking at a resurgence of the virus in some other european countries you can see what's been happening in the united states and so it is absolutely vital as a country that we continue to keep our focus and discipline and that we don't
6:16 pm
delude ourselves that somehow we're out of the woods or that this is all over because it isn't all over. a plenty more still ahead on news hour including. catch inbreds if he gives a shit it could put trade talks on the with the e.u. or not is. a natural disaster dozens of rare wild animals are being killed in india's northern assam states will have to report. because paul coming out to the prosecutors in switzerland opening a criminal case against the head of world football at fifa president giani entertainer has come up with. for a 12 position politicians in hong kong have been disqualified from running in september's legislative council election leading pro-democracy activists joshua wall is one of those disqualified he says it shows
6:17 pm
a total disregard for the people of hong kong look toward authorities had asked the kind of it's about their views on beijing's national security law and u.s. sanctions the move is being denounced by the opposition as a political witch hunt and for the 1st time police in hong kong have used the news national security law to crackdown on pro-democracy activists online 4 students have been arrested they're accused of posting content that calls for hong kong's independence from china but he imposed this controversial law 4 weeks ago saying it's needed to restore order if you compile and has more now from hong kong. hong kong is particularly sensitive issue for the u.k. as hong kong used to be a british colony in the u.k. signed a joint declaration with beijing before it was handed over in 1907 and the ambassador had mentioned that to saying it hadn't violated the joint declaration but the u.k. and the rest of the international community see this national security laws imposing restrictions on the hong kong that wasn't within the agreements to
6:18 pm
safeguard hong kong's autonomy and now we're seeing the hong kong government using that national security law as a way of what its opponents are saying influencing elections these legislative council elections the only even minor democratic process there is in hong kong that are to take place in september about 12 of the candidates the pro-democracy candidates including activists joshua while warring the more radical i would say activists that were pushing for far more anti government action along with even more moderate established democratic candidates have been now disqualified and the government says it's because partially because they gave they listed a number of reasons but one of the main reasons underlying it is because they did not support this national security law so although we're seeing beijing saying that this national security law should not affect the political sphere spiritual not affect people's freedom of expressions it should not affect hong kong so autonomy
6:19 pm
the actions that we're seeing and according particularly to the critics of hong kong's government and the opposition camp is that it is he being used very much to limits hong kong's expression and particularly any anti government decenter activity. well jonathan back to the to the united kingdom has accused the government of raising tensions between the 2 countries the ming says the u.k.'s condemnation of hong kong's new national security law and moves to grant people in the city a pathway to produce should british citizenship amount to blatant interference challenges more now from london in a video news conference earlier on thursday the chinese ambassador to the u.k. argue china's case he struck 3 broad notes the 1st was to say that china is a banana actor on the world stage that it's at hearing so international laws it's
6:20 pm
a promoter of peaceful development it doesn't invade other countries and trying to export is a model of governance overseas he also then went on to say that the new national security law in hong kong is not the problem the wall way the tight chinese tech giant is not the problem it's the u.k. that's a problem it's the u.k. that is poisons china u.k. relations and the last night was to say that look if good sense can prevail if the u.k. can stop interfering in hong kong business which he insisted was china's internal affairs then good relations could be restored which would be beneficial for all we can hear a little bit more of his words now on hong kong they have been blunted interference from the u.k. in hong kong. in terms of china including wrong
6:21 pm
nations against the national security mall as they are change to the same ball being passed. in addition treaty with hong kong. this moves seriously. and prosperity. following recent british music against china the ambition to a big to walk away from the u.k.'s tech infrastructure the suspension of the extradition treaty between the u.k. and hong kong and the move to give 3000000 hong kong as a path to u.k. citizenship china has only really responded by suspending the extradition treaty with the u.k. as well so there is an expectation amongst china watchers here in the u.k. that more is going to be coming and the u.k. just has to wait to see what further action beijing might take russia is denying
6:22 pm
trying to destabilize bella russo ahead of its upcoming election after 30 of its citizens were detained in minsk interest in president alexander lukashenko has accused the men of being mercenaries sent by moscow to incite riots and who is seeking a 6th term in elections next month a better reeses been one of russia's most reliable ally instance the fall of the soviet union earl asians have strained in recent years moscow to once been a ruse to implement a union agreement signed in 1990 that would create a single currency constitution parliament and a court system between the president blames moscow for domestic discontent and is accused of plotting to overthrow him meanwhile relations with the west have improved if every my pump became the 1st u.s. secretary of state to visit minsk since the early 1990 s. after that washington appointed its 1st ambassador in over a decade then in may but ordered all from the united states for the 1st time after

failing to agree on a price to buy from russia. arroyo as the premier is a fellow at the russia and eurasia program at chatham house which is a british foreign affairs think tank he doesn't believe russia would gain much by interfering in the elections actually not so many people in belarus believe that this poll came to belarus to destabilize many people in belarus i jailed on the freight charges and previously below sneath ortiz several times he used forcible terrorist attacks as a tool to suppress them a graphic activists during the election campaigns so what most people believe if there's this mass there it's we're going to do that middle east africa through ballerinas because of the problems with connections caused by the pandemic so presently i do not see much point for russia to into fact into this presidential election and to send 10 messages here we can imagine that gramley become the

6:25 pm
mars when it reaches the red planet rover will look for bio signatures that will take rock samples and fly an experimental helicopter over the surface of the launch comes on the heels of similar missions from china and. i think america reports now from florida. launching on a mission to mars this is the start as nasa is most ambitious project to answer the age old question point are we alone. it will take the perseverance rover almost 7 months to reach the red planet and if all goes well place the car sized robot safely in the $20.00 crater once they're the rover will spend almost 2 years exploring an ancient martian lake a location scientists say may hold the building blocks to life so one of the key steps that perseverance is taking is collecting samples that can be brought back to earth in the future and then analyzed with all the trust real laboratories we have
6:26 pm
which should actually provide us a definitive answer to our question. in a 1st in space exploration the rover is equipped with an experimental helicopter called ingenuity it plans to make several hopes above the planet's surface something nasa say will be a wright brothers moment in space ingenuity helicopter on the perseverance rover is one of the most exciting aspects of the mission because this will be the 1st time we demonstrate flight on another planet and that's really important as an exploration tool if all goes as planned this would be nasa's 9th rover to land on mars and so far the most sophisticated perseverance will carry out an experiment to try and generate oxygen after the martian atmosphere drill for rock samples and most importantly look for signs of frozen microbial life if you keep adding more rovers you get incremental increase. this is a knowledge but bringing our samples back and letting thousands of scientists and
6:27 pm
hundreds of laboratories look at them that's where the big increase of biology is going to come once the samples are collected nasa plans to retrieve them by launching another mission to the red planet before hopefully returning with them safely to earth what the mission delivers may answer the question did mars ever have life before any of that happens perseverance will have to land on mars i window of time nasa calls 7 minutes of terror that's how long it takes the rover to send a radio signal back to earth the curiosity rover managed in 2012 and if perseverance does the same it will begin a whole new era in the search for life and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida. still to come on the program a future in peril you z.b. child survivors of ice will face a health crisis years after their in. a dream shattered families seeking answers about how the teenage son died while training at a time military. and well tennis no one actually got to pulls out of the

6:35 pm
health crisis that's according to amnesty international which says that nearly 2000 children have been reunited with their families since 2014 and this includes former child soldiers and girls subjected to sexual violence it says most of these children are now suffering from serious health conditions including post-traumatic stress disorder and depression and points out that they have not received any form of support with psychological health or financial help uneasy women they're also facing a crisis many give birth gave birth as a result of sexual assaults bio-diesel fighters have been separated from their children while the author of that misty report is with us now nicolette baldwin joins us from london nicholas thanks for joining us on the to talk about this very distressing report talking of children who have been abducted torchwood forced to fight no end of abuses under us wondering how you even reconcile with a child who's been through those kind of experiences that was exactly
6:36 pm
what we were wondering with this research and i think that was the struggle that so many of the caregivers for these children are facing in but really. a flex i think have been covered in the abuses during the conflict but actually the legacy of these of these abuses live on and even though the world's attention has turned away from the conflict with isis the people who suffered in that conflict and especially these children are still continuing to suffer and placed in massive challenges right yes indeed it lives on in the shape of the children's lives right now what happens to them how do they react. so we found that these children now come away with really significant physical health problems they have long term many have long term illnesses conditions physical
6:37 pm
disabilities especially boys who are forced to fight and come up out from captivity with missing arms and legs or other conditions that will be with them for their lives and then girls who have been subjected to sexual violence have specific unique health problems such as scarring in traumatic fish schiller's difficulty conceiving or carrying children and then just to move on to their mental health they really are facing a crisis and some of the most common symptoms that they're exhibiting include hyperactivity aggression withdrawal from social situations severe mood swings and the list goes on so really these these children are struggling and the caregivers for these children who are usually their family members are struggling as well right before you get on to what needs to be done it we also should note that several women viewed by you so that they were coerced or even deceived into
6:38 pm
leaving their children behind. yes we found that many of these these children the children who were born as a result of sexual violence to isis members have largely been denied a place within the cd society and so some of the the the women willingly part from these children but many of them as you say have carted all me as a result of very severe pressure. and and often even coercion and we found in many cases that these were women were desperate to be unite with their children they told us that they hadn't received any news or any word about their children even about just what their whereabouts they told us that they couldn't speak publicly about their desire desire to reunite with their children out of fear is for their own safety and that is why we're look for the women who wish to
6:39 pm
reunite with their children we're calling for them to be reunited and as urgently as possible really this is a life and death situation for these women to be relocated and resettled in 3rd countries ok well clearly a great deal needs to be done to try and resolve these difficult situations we run out of time because that's it but we do appreciate you for bringing this to attention from amnesty thank you. and now the treatment of military cadets in thailand is under scrutiny as thousands take part in an annual recruitment drive the armed forces have been accused of allowing abusive initiation ritual and some families of dead cadets to speak you know go hide the reports now from bangkok. ever since he was a school boy pick up on the tanya kahn wanted to become an army officer at 18 he was well on his way to that dream when he suddenly died at an army training school . after his death 3 years ago community children made
