mitigate this crisis. the theme of our presidency is realizing opportunities of the 21st century. for all covert 19 pandemic has forced us to adjust our focus rapidly to face such repercussions. let's bring in correspondent, teri schultz for the view from brussels. hi terry. saudi arabia is hosting this weekend's g. 20 summit. so let's talk about the elephant in the room. the kingdom has been accused repeated the of major human rights violations. but the e.u. is still taking part. what is their rationale? well, claire, that was a big question, and in fact, lawmakers, the european parliament asked european commission president ursula vonder lion and kills a presidential. michelle not to take part because they felt that would be rewarding the. 'd saudi regime for a record that simply can't be tolerated. live under law in a show,
michelle said look, this is a meeting of the world's most powerful countries. we've got some very big crises to deal with, and we simply can't sit it out. the leaders, the e.u. leaders did say they would be bringing up these rights abuses, including very specifically the brutal murder of journalist jamal khashoggi at the hands of agents linked to the saudi regime. now in a statement german chancellor angela merkel has said the goal is to distribute 2000000000 doses of coronavirus vaccines by the end of 2021. a. let's see if we can take a listen both because it's also in all known interests to improve global pandemic preparedness in the long term. to this end, we need to sustainably strengthen the world health organization. we need reliable funding, better cooperation, greater independence. and the g 20 can provide important indeed crucial support in this area. if we stand together across the globe, we can control and overcome the virus and its impact,
it's worth redoubling our efforts to achieve this. so terry, this is of course, a critical juncture for figuring out how to distribute promising vaccines. what discussions have been taking place with regard to how to ensure that they are shared fairly. this in fact was a side of event at the g. 20 today in which chancellor merkel french president mccaughan the italian prime minister and several other world leaders along with the w.h.o. discussed exactly these issues. how to get a vaccine. and then how to make sure that it's distributed, not just to those countries that can afford it, the g. 20 countries, but also to the most vulnerable populations in fact, are still of underlying and some other leaders wrote a letter directly to g. 20 leaders asking them to make up a $4500000000.00 euro $1000000000.00 youzhny shortfall in one of the w.h.o. programs that would do just that. and that's one of the things that was discussed on the sidelines of course. important to european leaders will be bringing in the united states after the election of joe biden. the u.s.
has set out global efforts to achieve an distributive vaccine, and e.u. leaders will be very much hoping that will change. now speaking of the united states, this could well be donald trump's last appearance on the world stage as u.s. president. what are other nations expecting from the outgoing american president? it's not exactly clear how trump will appear on this stage, because while his official schedule says he's taking part in the virtual summit, he was seen golfing during this side event on pandemic preparedness. so it's not clear whether he will be making a speech and if so, of course, it's impossible to know what he will say. it could be a little bit awkward even virtually because of course many of these leaders will have already congratulated trump successor on his selection and event, which donald trump himself has yet to acknowledge. tensions for us there in brussels, thank you very much. have a so-called islamic state says it carried out a series of attacks in the afghan capital kabul at least 8 people have been killed,
by multiple rocket blasts. this is u.s., secretary of state mike on pe, it was in the region to push forward, stalled afghan peace talks. that was, you know, look at the cabel, brought to a standstill after a series of rocket attacks targeted different residential areas. early in the morning, afghanistan's interior ministry says mortar shells were fired from 2 vehicles the. so for the record, what they got, it was morning and we were leaving our home when an explosion happened. and 2 of my sisters and my mother were wounded. we've brought them to the hospital, but they're going to come up. i was having breakfast when the rockets landed, one of the rockets hit a vehicle belonging to a bakery. at least 3 people were wounded and have been taken to the hospital. violence has surged in recent months as multiple insurgent groups launched assaults on afghan security forces and civilians. this despite peace talks between the
taliban and the government, the u.s. secretary of state mike pump aoe has been in qatar to kick start the stalled talks . he met with the taliban, co-founder mullah abdul hamid bardon, our pump ayos flying visit comes after washington announced it will speed up. the withdrawal of u.s. troops from afghanistan 2500 are to leave by january. there are fears this could further weaken the afghan forces and emboldened the taliban. for now, people in kabul must live with the constant threat of another attack. let's turn now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world. the republican party in the u.s. state of michigan is calling for an audit of election ballots in wayne county. the party is requesting
a 14 day delay in certifying the state's results to allow time for the chad when county, which includes the city. detroit voted overwhelmingly for joe biden. in the presidential election. the european space agency is preparing to launch its latest satellite to monitor changes in the oceans. sentinel 6 will help to track rising water levels across the world. the craft is set to lift off from the vandenberg air force base in california. meanwhile, is to begin a setting up a merge and see refugee camps in the canary islands. more than 18000, people from north and west africa have reached the islands this year after a hazardous sea crossing for than 10 times as many as last year. and he says its forces are closing in on the capital of the rebel held a t.v. region. the conflict has cost hundreds of lives and thousands of civilians have fled from the fighting. aid agencies are warning of a humanitarian crisis and calling for
a ceasefire so that aid can be delivered. these people fled the fighting in northern ethiopia by crossing the border into sudan. most escaped with just what they could carry. then we managed to escape the bombs, but some people were hit. we were covered in dust. we made it out, we had no food. we were hungry, people welcomed us here. we had no clothes, and i know when the people who saw us gave us this sudden influx of ethiopian refugees is beginning to overwhelm a groups. the united nations refugee agency says around 32000, people have crossed into sudan and the last 2 weeks. it's now preparing to take in as many as 200000 people over the next 6 months. serious is if we do not act quickly with resources needed, you know,
sudan already facing the map, the economic crisis challenges. actually, not only if you're, but also on friday, u.n. secretary general antonio. good ted echoed that statement. he said the situation was very concerning and called for a cease fire. we have been asking for the full respect of international method in law and also for the opening of humanitarian corridors, dollars and the tools that might be necessary for humanitarian aid to be delivered . in the areas of conflict, but the carnage in the tikrit region continues on friday that he cried. people's liberation front accused the government of shelling a university in the region, injuring several students. but there was no immediate response from the government . openly admits that drones are being deployed in the conflict, but it says all of its a,
a strong military targets. it's accuses the rebels of foreign rockets into a neighboring ethiopian state on friday. and as you know, so far, the government has rejected any calls for external mediation, saying the conflict is an internal one about law and order. but that internal conflict could now be running the risk of destabilizing the entire region. and while the coronavirus pandemic is taking its toll on humans, many animals are actually benefiting from the situation. wells, for example, are enjoying quieter oceans and thanks to the drop in shipping traffic, scientists say it's a once in a lifetime chance to learn more about the world's biggest mammals. this boat used to be a fish stronger. now it's a whale watching coat with about 50 tourists onboard. it's located in the norwegian scene, off the island of endianness. the huge marine mammals are retreating more and more
because the ocean has become too large for their sound waves behave quite differently. underwater than on land whales can feel this noise. they recognize sounds very well, even over great distances. so we maneuver our boat very carefully so as not to disturb them. we even have an extra quiet propeller. but now, because of the corona virus pandemic, the number of ships headed north of scandinavia has dropped. most cruise liners are docked, the ocean is calm for marine researchers. it's a unique opportunity to understand the world's oceans better scientist garryowen samanta. students have been studying light and noise pollution. he says you can observe the impact of the corona lockdown on nature right here in the trondheim few words. i recently saw 2 or 3 pilot whales.
although it's not a scientific finding, i can say one thing. i've never seen pilot whales so close to the city center in my entire life to live there, not it. with this device, marine researchers observed the water quality off trondheim, a standard procedure, but there researching other tendencies as well. they want to find out how the underwater world has been affected by this sudden silence. they're interested in behavior of all aquatic creatures, from tiny organisms right up to the giant whale, how they eat hunt, and communicate undisturbed by human noise. gears research colleagues have been a network of underwater microphones in the atlantic and north sea. since the crew on a virus lock down, noise levels have dropped by 25 percent in some places. the researchers say it may
not have been this quiet in 150 years. just parts now and a rare wobble from blueness legal leaders, byron munich, saw them draw 10 at home to better bremen. some final play from josh sargent, a set up maxi eg a shine on the stroke of half time. the germany international school finishes giving the visitors an unlikely lead. then of pinpoint a header from kingsley komarr rescued a point for the champions in the 2nd half. it was nevertheless, a surprising setback for byron. well, the bundesliga as early saturday games are done and dusted, so let's take a look at all the results. frankfurt held lights, asia to a draw, as we saw braman held byron bielefeld, a loss to labor crews and beat shall cough, cough and haim. a druid with arch gladbach and oxford shared the spoils. and
saturday's later game had to berlin to host dortmund on sunday minds, travel to freiburg and cologne, face on ellen. that's a news update at this hour. coming up next, the world stories travels to texas to look at the impact the coated, 1000 pandemic richardson in berlin from in the whole team here. thanks for watching . a little idea as it is on its way to bring you more conservation plays, how do we make see the screen or how can we protect habitat so we can make a difference global ideas or a mental series against obesity, photos. and do you believe that all mine from the get go to parliament? is everything going god knows, bobby why. despite coming from a close family,
the pop star wants to become president. challenges we've got this elite are just incredible story of bob woodward. 1 starts december 10th. don't blame it on the good this week on world stories. another strict lockdown in france, fighting indifference to grown up in turkey. but our journey begins in the usa. the city of el paso, texas is one of the country's carona hot spots stretching hospitals and funeral homes there to their limits. and bustle is on the border with
mexico, but no one is talking about the wall anymore. the pen demick is raging here. numbers are soaring, right now. we have about 241 in patient cases. now, to contrast with about 45 days ago, we only had 30, but a lot of those people that you see going into the stands behind me. they will wind up inside our hospital, have authorities are already arranging to move patients to other cities. if the hospitals become overwhelmed, planning for months of strain, we have to make sure that we are ready for this winter. not only here in el paso, but also around the country, resources are finite. there is already a backlog in dealing with the dead. referee generated more outside the hospitals serve as makeshift more to our east. funeral homes in the past so are so overwhelmed that families sometimes have to wait a week to bury
a lost one. funeral directors themselves are struggling to cope earlier in this race is the level of stress is very high because it is not comparable to how it used to be. some months ago we had to run 30 services for month. right now we're having around 18 of sort of issues for me is this is where the economic effects of the pandemic can most clearly be seen. downtown el paso seems abandoned by some money. it all works just around the corner. for him, the presidential race is not over yet. north of the president of iran is not going to be the president of the court's going to be donald trump. he feared his business might be hit by the pen demick, but now he has orders until july next year. republicans, he says, are good for the construction sector. despite his support for trump, he has his own opinion on covert 1000, specially after he tested positive. everyone is going to get the virus and we're going to fill up the hospitals. testing is one of the crucial instruments to avoid
to this problem may get cordy mates 10 testing centers. in that passage. he works for a private company that is being paid by the state of texas, but his main concern in the pen demick is not political. i don't have fully knowledge of what joe biden is planning to do in his administration. but until now we haven't had any kind of difficulties with the current administration. i don't think it's a matter of resources. the main concern is how to communicate to the people what to do or not really look at noida supporters. biden supporters to different sides that seem to come together in a passive 10 european countries have reacted to the drastic increase in chrono infections with curfews and lockdowns. france's new regulations are strict just of all impressions from paris even under
lockdown, the french are taking to the streets as opposed to doing the 1st covert. 19 way for schools here are staying open, but teachers don't feel safe. we have between $20.25 pupils per class. we are trying to impose social distancing right in our classrooms. we can, it may have a distance of 40 centimeters between each pupil that she's the most similar said, you see we were hoping the government would green for senator kerry measures, but they haven't or at least not sufficiently. so we don't understand that. we fear the government is abandoning us to lash out. they are getting support from their pupils who have been blocking school entrances and posting videos online that show a lack of social distancing. also unlike during the 1st cave in $1000.00 wife, more shops open and large parts of france's industry are still up and running. and
yet, this is still one of europe's strictest. lockdowns with people only allowed one hour a day and only within a radius of one kilometer of their homes. most french think the government was right to confine them, but many criticize the method. i don't understand why big supermarkets are no longer allowed to sell books, clothes or toys, just because small shops that sell the same things are closed. the government is just not good at explaining itself, and this will cause lots of unemployment and bankruptcy. why are they leaving big supermarkets open by closing small megastores often take in hundreds of clients and small shops, only one or 2 think they are much safer. and yet the government is staying the course. even though the spread of the epidemic has been slowing down.
in turkey, despite an increase in infections, there's been widespread indifference toward the corona, regulations. the government is trying to change that the city of $16000000.00 in which the corona virus is spreading. and one of the teams that are fighting to stop it was the last image on his a dentist. at least she was until the pandemic started it. she's been a contact traces since march 1 of around 35000 in turkey. and if you order book seen from here, the size of the city county scary. and i sometimes wonder where this pandemic is headed. but as a doctor, i have a responsibility. i try to think positively and knowing that i help people is what motivates me and keeps me going at the moment.
the tracing team manages around 10 households a day. they work in shifts almost around the clock. the goal is always the same, track down test and isolate those who have been exposed to someone with 90 and all of this as quickly as possible. google's 1st case today is the collect says all family. the mother recently tested positive. now the father has symptoms, troops will get what you call a clip cluster. if the test is positive, gergen will also trying to trace his call texts. the whole family has to stay at home for the next 14 days. after each visit, protective clothing has to be changed. good job is time consuming and strenuous but it's worth it. she says. as in many other countries,
people's vigilance here has slackened in a recent survey. more than half of the respondents in turkey said the coronavirus does not affect a worry them and critics also blame the government for this lack of concern. because the health ministry no longer reports the number of new infections every day. but only the number of symptomatic patients john uncuffed, angelo, of the opposition c.h.p. says the government is hiding the real scope of the pandemic. so slow here in istanbul alone, the number of cases is 20 times higher than the tally from the ministry of health from i'm saying this with regret, but the figures and information we have given are not correct. we're going to, you know, google image on his, on her next house call, that she does not want to take part in political discussions. she knows the debate
about the numbers, but doesn't want to get involved. that more and more people disregard the coronavirus rules frustrates her been, which is surely good. it makes me sad. we are putting so much effort into this work . but what's the point? if so many act as if nothing can happen to that one. and if this doesn't change, we won't see an end to this pandemic sticking because it google hopes that she will soon be able to work as a dentist again. but she also knows that her new job will be needed for quite a while. germany is currently in the midst of a partial lockdown. schools. stores and businesses are open, but the government has restricted social contact among people. many oppose the measure.
limit alexanderplatz in the popular areas for shopping in strolling a safe distance is not guaranteed safe. politicians think that's why there are compulsory mosques even outside that's finished its own for i find it terrible. why should i put on a mosque out here now? when you know denise morcombe behind me, you have to be able to bring fresh air. i'm with mine at all. no one i do not find it. ok. the mosque has to put on in certain places because i mean that it's really outdoors what is actually supposed to happen in public buildings. i'm just trying every way, but not here in a public square in cuts to politicians need to explain more clearly what they're doing to combat the gun. think in my view,
the whole thing doesn't only depend on the politicians. the whole thing is, a social g.t. like many of us in a democracy, people have to support it in some form or another. in the law. we will have to live with this far as somehow, and we actually meet a social debate. how it's going to look exactly. it can be true, a few good time with mobile storage because don't talk so much that something has to be pushed through. now, will it go on like this, with a wave get higher and higher. and of course one has to austin question, what we still have to do not to lose do you for news and we're not mom doing even more hardly possible for the restaurants and cafes in the capital. they have to close for a month. again, this can be seen almost 5 kilometers away in the trendy district of friedrichs, on there
are usually hundreds of people in this pub district, tourists, but also i learned this as i think everyone here is not affected is fine with it. so i don't have any big problems to do without now for a while, but also only because i don't walk in the hospitality industry and have nothing to do with that. i can understand that people are angry and secure, and that directly affects them professionally. he sounded like that stuffed, full fledged at the same time, most restaurants have invested a lot of money in hygiene measures. some officer had to go to at least a little money your
life when it's no longer forbidding your career when you're finally allowed to pursue it. it's your opinion when you can finally say it is freedom more important than homeland. we need artists in exile, living in berlin, 21 next on d, w e. go now for good. and so more energy to burn fossil. this doesn't just mean transitioning to renewable energy. she, it means having access to electricity. currently, only about 5 percent of the population has this privilege a government project is seeking to change that you can look for in 60 minutes.
i am not proud of them. i will not succeed in dividing us sal not succeeded in taking the people off the streets because we're tired of this dictatorship. taking a stand, global news that matters, made for minds. i'm an author and witness to world events. that's all. i had this vision in my life because i didn't talk on banking to germany and was like a child and half blind.
