that began in early november is dragging on and many germans are growing increasingly tired of it. and that if you're going to do i'm really hoping for the easing of some restrictions that we get to see something other than closed shops and restaurants so yes i do hope we're going to open up a bit now it's been obvious cause i'm unemployed and i can't do anything i can't work anywhere and nothing side just sit around at home. for the past there's got to be some kind of prospect that some things are going to be possible again soon as latest poll shows that a clear majority of germans now want to see lockdown measures eased the past 2 weeks have seen some tentative steps in that direction primary school children have returned to some classroom teaching and on monday head dresses were allowed to reopen. still there doesn't seem to be much light at the end of the tunnel

caused by a device that was intentionally place at the testing facility and investigation is underway. f.b.i. director chris ray has told us lawmakers there's no evidence to support a right wing theory that the siege on the capitol building was carried out by people posing as trump supporters the this crowd the events of genuine 6 domestic terrorism vowed to hold the rioters accountable. australia's attorney general says he categorically denies a rape allegation against him the accusation was made more than 3 decades after the alleged incident when christian porter was 17 and the accuser was 16 years old porter says he had no sexual relations with the women she took her allegations to police in 2019 but later took her own life. so-called islamic state claimed responsibility for killing 3 young female media workers in
12:12 pm
afghanistan women who work for a local afghan radio and t.v. station in the city of jalalabad. burials being held today the women who are recent high school graduates were shot on their way home in 2 separate attacks working for the dubbing department of the media company and the station says that of the 10 women working for them since began began broadcasting in 2804 of now with killed it's the latest in a string of attack targets attacks targeting female professionals in afghanistan. let's bring in our correspondent ali the t.v. in kabul ali what more do we know about the background of these attacks. so as you said earlier this is the 4th instance of a female media worker being killed in this media outlets specifically and what we have to remember is that it's only been in 3 months that this has taken place. so
12:13 pm
it's really very worrying because again this is a smaller outlet and may not have as much security or as many and the resources of some of the bigger t.v. and radio stations in the country so unfortunately may make it more of a target for a group trying to you know instill fear in the public and in the people and we have to remember that these attacks are often preplanned. and if you look at it you know these these are not women that would have been out in the forefront they wouldn't have been out on t.v. or you know well known on the radio because they would have been dubbed dubbing voices so it really shows a lot of premeditation because when these attacks take place they're following these people for 1520 days at a time to really understand their routines and the fact that again they're choosing young girls that were behind the scenes this really shows that there is a plot behind all of this. but this is not the 1st such attack
12:14 pm
a number of female journalists have been killed by extremists over the last few months why are women being targeted specifically i mean obviously it's and a very specific message you know about the fact that women are not saved and may keep women from working in me trying to keep them at home it may sort of you know when the u.s. began their invasion in 20011 of their justifications were for it was that they wanted to restore the rights of women and to advance women's place in society once again so this is a way of instilling fear in all of that and saying that you know that hasn't happened to the degree that you think it has or that it can very easily backtrack. so what's the government doing to protect them that's that's the issue is that i mean on the one hand there's very little the government can do because as we've seen with this attack you know these are behind the scenes workers you know it's very they're not unfortunately the most likely people that you would think would be
12:15 pm
targeted but they had received information in the past i had spoken to a female journalist like a couple months ago and she was saying how the intelligence agency had told her that there would be women posing as women in distress that needed help who are you being used by bill called forces to lure famous and well known women to their death so there has been some level of information about this and so the question is you know what is the government doing exactly as you said and the most important thing is will these crying be investigated will the families finally have some closure and some answers beef we've had so many instances of male and female journalists being killed in over the past few years especially over the last year where we know very little about who was responsible and what happened to those who were allegedly responsible for the attacks other than t.v. thank you very much around 25000 african migrants arrived on the
12:16 pm
canary islands off the northwest coast of africa last year the spanish archipelago has become the european union's new migration hotspot many refugees have already traveled from their own words to mainland spain and other e.u. countries but the spanish government is now cracking down hard on efforts to prevent that some locals are sounding the alarm they fear that the islands could become a prison for refugees across bonded young philip short's reports from the island of . this spot is where up and just friends begin then you life 4 months ago they had been at sea for 7 days traveling 1300 kilometers from their home and sending to get on. just of the spanish coast to rescue ship took them on board and brought them here to the part of our guinea again in the south of the island. has happened since then i have no work i have
12:17 pm
nothing to do i just eat and sleep that's not what i came here for we comes to anything for our families in senegal like sending them some money for food for example 23000 refugees arrived in the canary islands last year 10 times more than in previous years they are accommodation in hotels and makeshift camps however the spanish government is working hard to prevent the refugees from traveling from the islands to the mainland it fears this could create a new unchecked escape corey door to europe it's a clear violation of spanish law according to refugee law down yet i haven't seen anything. that's in spain the rights to freedom of movement within the country is classified very high you can only detain someone if a judge has ordered it if a person is not in custody they can just be detained by the authorities.
12:18 pm
and that the islands have a long reach the separation point video protests and clashes between locals and refugees more and more on social media. and just friends for going to protests regularly they normally work as a way to get the moment they are unemployed to to have of corona crisis. has larry important to us to make clear that we have concerns about the in action of our government and how illegal migration has been mismanaged we are not racists we have been living here on the island. for many years with people from many different countries and cultures and in 180 percent of gun can now be as inhabitants live directly or indirectly from tourism in addition to the refugee crisis they are also affected by the worst economic slump in the last few decades due to the pandemic unemployed island us angry at the lack of support for them and frustrated migrants who perceive the island as
12:19 pm
a prison they are desperate to leave the situation on the canary islands is becoming increasingly tense local politicians are urging the government in madrid to finally start moving some of the migrants off their islands to the mainland islands or mainland it doesn't matter to him i do job and his friend a job in europe is all they want but their chances don't look good despite the corona crisis spain has started deporting people with no official grounds for asylum the measure which is said should be expanded in the next few months. and for us reporting them you want to do that when you start it up 6 goals by one of america's favorite children's authors have been taken out of print over their depiction of black and asian people is this the latest example of what critics call council culture just in line with the top. but 1st to germany where the domestic intelligence agency has been given the green light to
12:20 pm
monitor the activities of the far right a.f.d. party that's according to german media reports the f.t. or alternative for journal germany is the largest opposition party and germany's parliament and extreme right wing faction of the party has already been put under surveillance by the intelligence services now germany's federal office for the protection of the constitution has ruled that the whole party is suspected of right wing extremism and can therefore be monitored. as bring in our political correspondent nina for more on this story nina the biggest opposite. party under surveillance how significant is this. politically of course extremely significant and in concrete terms it gives the intelligence agency the right to actively gather information on the party and on its officials they can for instance work together with undercover agents they can tap phones they can tap other agencies for information and so far they've only been able to analyze publicly available sources
12:21 pm
and they did that for 2 years for the past 2 years and apparently what they found in their analysis is which is an $800.00 page document was that there have been you murs violations of human dignity and of the principle of democracy which then led the agency to come to the conclusion that the whole party needs to be put under surveillance and that there's a real risk that it is a right wing extremist group thing having said all of this it is important to know and to remember that all of this is based on german media reports who quote from information from security sources and we will probably not get official confirmation from the agency itself and that has to do with the fact that there is a lawsuit in a court in cologne on the issue because the a.v. obviously wanted to prevent that surveillance from happening and before that case has been closed the agency can't comment on it in public but to put this into perspective germans will be going to the polls here in september what does the news
12:22 pm
then mean for the chances well naturally it could deter some of the more moderate voters from voting for them those who voted for them out of protest against the other big parties but many experts are convinced that it's not going to take away the f.t.'s appeal to most of the core voters because they argue that there have been many cases where politicians have in public in the past made racist sexist or right wing extremist statements and that all of this never meant that their poll figures slumped considerably. well it does have a bit of a taste doesn't it when will this not feed into right wing conspiracy theories. well many a.s.d. politicians have in the past tried to present a policy as the underdog that is being demonized by what they call the mainstream parties the media the institutions here in germany and the mood here is specially during the corona crisis is very divided a many of the politicians have supported the anti corona protests so it would only be logical if they used this piece of news as an opportunity to replay that
12:23 pm
choosing of victimhood especially because we're going to the polls in september and parties are currently working hard to position themselves and to reach their voters with a message but of course there's also the more moderate part of the party which is a considerable one still and so it will be hard and interesting to watch over the next coming months how that party is going to try and align those 2 big factions within the party. political correspondent. thank you nina. 6 books by one of the world's best loved children's authors are being pulled from publication because of illustrations viewed as racist and insensitive account takers of dr seuss legacy say it's a 1st step toward promoting greater inclusion for all children a traditionalist say the decision is a step too far. dr seuss's books emphasize the weird and wacky
12:24 pm
of this use of simple rhyme and well places entertained and educated children for generations. but his use of caricature of asian and black people in several stories has been criticized as being racist now in the business to preserve stock to seuss legacy dr seuss enterprises is pulling 6 of his titles the move has angered many who claim it's just another example of so-called council culture. people need to realize that if dr seuss king get cancelled what can't be. i mean really this is a kid's book to me i think everyone should be desensitized you know. i'm not a guy who's gets offended easily and i think this whole society is way off that way off the hook but dr seuss enterprises says the books to try people and why is which are hurtful and wrong the business made the decision after months of consultation
12:25 pm
with panels of educated isn't experts many of whom have applauded them or. they were very very thoughtful about the way they did this and i think they recognize that you know these 6 books really don't fit with the way we think today about to pick people and so i appreciate their decision and i think that they've done it in a way that still recognizes the vast works that dr seuss has provided to many of us among the 6 titles discontinued our if i ran the zoo scrambled eggs supa micheli gets pulled and on beyond zebra but with dr seuss's catalogue including more than 60 classic titles it seems hard to believe that his stories are going to disappear from the pages of history any time soon. some football news bonus league aside shaka have hired their 5th coach of the season in an attempt to save demetrius
