a low it's good to happy with his life. from moscow. this is ancy international is world news at 11 with me calling right 1st for staff shortages, soaring kobe cases and pressure on the national health service. the chest of all led to another crisis in england. it's been reported that in parts of the country, patients are waiting for almost 50 hours to get a bed in accident and emergency units are in one case, a patient reportedly spent 47 hours in line at the role preston hospital. and i was dr from manchester. what in the southern county of suffolk, a teenager with serious mental health problems waited for almost 48 hours in the emergency room. according to local media, the n h s foundation trust for the area said to wait was due to a lack of specialist facilities. a luke winchester, who had a relative, affected by the crisis, told us what happened to his family. he woke up at 11 o'clock and he likes just wouldn't work and he fell out bed. and we didn't him until 3 o'clock where my dad's
4:02 pm
salt look on the guy coolant, where he shouldn't heard from him. when we call for the ambulance initially they said not to move it. oh and in case the been a spinal injury. after what you saw a couple of hours my, my dad so of start trying to hurry them up a little bit, tried finding 9 again to ask when detention was estimate arrival that direct him to 111. he would then took him back 9992, finding that eventually we spoke to a chap, he suggested how to move him back into his see and how to get him up. and we did that is improving, but he probably still required some medical assistance. but its insinuated to us that you know, well not even a senior that said would you, would you like to cancel the ambulance? you know, you've done everything that the ambulance would be. and at that point we took them at their value and said, yeah, okay, we'll cancel the ambulance and we'll give him his dinner and get me into bed, et cetera. the course of the night i stayed the night make sure he's okay. you know,
4:03 pm
the night is condition worsens and in the morning, i'd call for another ambulance or for say the 91 percent of hospital beds were occupied in england as of last friday that says the number of people waiting for hospital treatment that had a record high according to the chance, almost 6000000 people are on waiting lists and this coming winter will only intensify the pressure of the same time. britton's health secretary submitted that there aren't enough staff to operate the countries emergency telephone lines. the 999-8111 you just heard about. so judge of aid added that a detailed plan of action is being put together and will be unveiled soon. but like winchester is not convinced every step of the way that mismanaged the crisis. aside from the vaccine roll. now, i re personnel, any faith in the current government and the people on the ground who are working really hard, like the paramedics, like the people answering the cause. they're not necessarily always getting,
4:04 pm
given the clearest information. you know, i fully believe that when the person from 111 told us to talk to 999, i'm under the bus or from 9992. i was taught to 111. i'm sure that they believe that's what. yeah, that's what i'm told to do is i real simple answer as to where i think they're gonna fix it with their actions so far appear to be pretty inapt. cuz hes while they're up against on tuesday, the u. k. registered the highest number of daily cobra debts since march. and the government extended its emergency powers related to the commode of iris for another 6 months. of demonstrated, including anti faxes took to the streets to protest this and other pandemic measures. jemma police have warned that the country's board with poland is at risk of collapse amid a massive influx of migrants crossing over into the e g u from neighboring bella. bruce peter oliver has more of a story. the european union is placing mounting pressure on minsk over refugees looking to enter the
4:05 pm
e. u via bella ruse. now the german foreign minister has been among a group of, of senior german politicians that have pulled absolutely no punches whatsoever and their comments. hi, co must. the foreign minister has accused alexander lucas shanker, our rights of running an illegal migrant transport network is innocent o'clock we in europe are being confronted with the fact that lucas shanker was using refugees as a tool to put pressure on european nations of lucas ankles. nothing short of the how to the state runs smuggling race with arthur shift in new bill in and through belarus. state organized early states supported smuggling activities are taking place. the regime and belarus is now considerably expanded. the list of countries from where people can answer without as a result, that's a form of hybrid threats. when migrants are being used as a political well horse, they offer the interior minister of germany here you just heard. there's also said that he wants to coordinate with his polish counterpart in order to have joint
4:06 pm
border patrols a long, not polish, or bellow russian border. that border basically between belarus and the european union. there has been a deal done between brussels and baghdad. though in this particular issue, that is to make sure that no planes will be flying refugees from a rock into bela root. so the route that quite a few people had taken. now, this airbag on flights is going to be in place at least until the end of the year. but what we're talking about deals, and particularly when it comes to refugees minds go back to 2015 to the start of the migrant crisis, which saw over 1300000 people seek asylum inside the european union. a deal at that time was done with turkey. turkey of course, was the country that the vast majority of people who arrived inside the e. you traveled across at the time. billions were given towards or promised,
4:07 pm
at least, and certainly hundreds of millions given to turkey, trying to make sure that people either remained in turkey or certainly didn't make or try to make that crossing. there still a lot of reserve judgment when it comes to exactly how successful that deal was. and however, any sign of a deal being offered towards belarus, anne is non existent at the moment. in fact, the barrage of president alexander lucas shenker says that he's doing everything he can possibly to fight illegal immigration, but says that all he gets in return from his european partners is political pressure and sanctions. you're stifling us information only. you are doing it methodically and collectively. you are trying to destroy our economy and expect us to spend hundreds of millions of dollars protecting your cheer, political interests, like before. you must be crazy to think we will support you if you want us to help . you have to take steps in that direction rather than try to stifle us. it's hopeless. well, despite it not being what anybody in brussels wants or certainly not what they want
4:08 pm
to talk about publicly, at least it does seem that one of the only real ways to get to the crux of this problem may be for the a you to work directly with bella roofs or talking to earlier, dr. steven got it. the institute of european studies in belgrade describe russell's attitude to valero, says colonial hello, says being treated quite differently from turkey. we can see the clear difference in language and in deeds. and there is this sense i will say oregon's law when i, when brussels, he is talking to them a sense that i would even compared to their postcolonial cost. i would say this has a lot to do with when the hybrid warfare with, with hybrid warfare against russia and billers is being seen as a, let's say,
4:09 pm
influenced by russia from the russell log ministration. and of course, from their western neighbors, the baltic states and poland. so i do think we have more concerned for geo politics here than ford human rights. the e u has awarded a soccer of prize for freedom of thought to russian opposition, figure alexi, and of albany. the accolades given annually by the european parliament to recognize what it calls perseverance for human rights. i'll teach shall, ado. becky told don't call to the details is is considered to be the use talk human rights prize, but there are concerns about how it's been used in recent years. we've heard now on wednesday that the 2021 recipient is alexi. navarro leaned opposition, figure head in russia, who's currently serving jail time for breaching bail conditions. just want to give you a bit of background on what's led to validate,
4:10 pm
being in jail at the moment i lost in august, he was on a flight on his way to moscow, where he fell ill. he was taken to a russian hospital and then later requested that he was moved to a facility in germany. i. he was moved to that facility in germany and it was after he arrived there that there were allegations from the doctors that he had been poisoned with his substance known as normal shock. now at since then, we had accusations from government, not just germany, but also across europe, accusing the russian government of being behind that poisoning. however, russian medical officials and officials at the hosp the way he was treated in russia, say that ad there was no trace of the poison when he was being treated that he did return to russia. and as a result of breaching his rail conditions, he was sent to serve out time in prison,
4:11 pm
and that's where he is currently as recipient of this top a human rights award from the european union parliament. both charlotte, you mentioned that there are just a, just the beginning of your talk there, that there's been some concern about the prize being politicized. can you tell us a little bit more about that? yes, that's right. some any peas themselves hate out at this award saying it's being used as a political weapon by the european union. and that's because the recipient doesn't just get 50000 euros and a statue. they also get the backing of the european parliament themselves. and there has been just in the, over the last few years, the choice of the norman knees and then the people who get this accolade really have something in common in that is that many of them have been calling for government change in their own country. that start in 2020. when at the bell, a russian opposition at received this award is a time when the you is encouraging protests in belarus against the elected
4:12 pm
government fair in 2018. it was a ukrainian film director who was in jail for plotting tara in 2017. it was the venezuelan opposition at a time when the e was sanctioning president madura of venezuela. and in fact, it was that year that emmy peas really hate out really started to get angry about this award at saying that the e you had undermined dialogue in venezuela. their words not mine. and as a result were boycotting the ceremony that year. they also accused the e u of instrumental lazing. human rights is the use of this award that the price is also been awarded to political leaders in the past. but some of since fallen foul of the you including anson suki in my, and man as a result, she's been stripped of her rights to be part of this exclusive community. the addition now of alexi, they're valid, the will it increased those thoughts from many that really this is an award that is
4:13 pm
being used as a political tool by the european union, against those government sit dislikes or disagrees with. okay, well it's a european parliament award. so let's talk to one of his and pays maximilian car from the alternative for germany. party. good. have you with a hearty attacker of prize, again, going to a kremlin critic but of a coincidence that it yeah, i mean, it is you can say a week as the expected and that pays. i think it's ridiculous because we all know the records of mission of on the well, you came up in the early 2000 as a clear a sense. um and then he was sentenced in russia for having fought for making 1000000 blower with them. then putting the money out to a company and 5, chris for not paying taxes. so you see as long as you are very tough and tired,
4:14 pm
russian or anti russian government, then it's okay to be a racist and it's ok. i'm not to texas when you're you school, i don't way. and when i heard that proposal, i booked a joke, but unfortunately the joke has become round. so what i want measure did the european parliament says the price claims its full recognition for battling for human rights. so by what measure didn't, if i only qualify for them for being and parish, no, for the anti russian, that's ok today. so this parliament has shifted to the way too much to the left and in geo politics, no much to become a junior partner of the new by like ministration that it obviously doesn't have to be anti russian to get prices. recognition. critics say that the award switch from
4:15 pm
the prestigious as essentially become an international political tool for brussels is, is that fair? how could it be used that way? i mean, it is, of course, a price. that is because it is widely reported. you're also talking about it, it is a little bit if you over palletized politicize such prices and such ceremonies, then sooner or later people stop taking it for serious. and that is going to be reached. now we reach now with this situation that it becomes ridiculous and especially it becomes ridiculous because we have a neighboring country, a retro, which is the ukraine, and there is an elected member follow with who's under arrest. and we pay government imperative for putting a real elected opposition leader into arrest. but on the other hand, we have a,
4:16 pm
at least out food figure in russia will be sent. you must go. and then we say, ok, does this figure in must go look at a human rights record, a human rights recognition was on the other hand, we don't even recognize that we have a problem and that kind of screwed up the sponsor. and this double stamps did is this hi to christy makes the particulars and, and when i, when i got the message today, 1st i thought my team wanted to, to make a joke on my cost. and then i asked is that reality? and they said, yes, it's reality it's, it's so you, you shouldn't take it for serious as i will do. i will not do it. finally, i'm at the ceremony bowl will take place that there are, of course, many people who do think no. val needs during the right thing in his campaigns over the years, so presumably they think he must have something in common with andre soccer of the russian disciplined, whose name is on the prize. i mean, are,
4:17 pm
i was referred to russia a better place. now. name, move use for figure. $1000000.00 outside russia, texas. for russia, they'll be misuse of christ. name off the great for the next 3 to bought a russia. that is. yes it, it gives play a topping on on the calling the figure like alex be no money. who is now a, what if alex bonnie has made his statement on people who make this kind of petra, in the european union and in germany in particular, we had that if alex bonnie, $1000000.00 made oil and to pipe in germany, we could remain to jail and he would be 10 times for prob,
4:18 pm
in germany and you have like you did all who had put him in jail and now what you need to become the thorough prize. i'm still really impressed how that is working and i think it's so ridiculous that we be well, you know, the price of the price when as i said, there's always proved devices that okay, maximilian crawl you to pay in parliament mp for alternative for germany. good to talk to any relish. next, the grim discovery of a beheaded man at a home in southeast francis sparked a mass police hunt helicopters, special equipment such as thermal imaging, gear, and more than a 100 officers have been deployed with dogs to find the suspected perpetrator. it's thought that the suspect killed his grandfather lay beside the incident to shop the moves they've known, the lead killer for around 30 years. the suspect motives have not yet been reveal.
4:19 pm
the area around the town has been sailed off and security around local schools has been tightened. police also warning that the suspect may be armed and dangerous. a president putin has ordered 9 paid days off work for russians nationwide from october, the 30th. and if i break attempt to try and stop the spread of the corona, virus article responded, daniel armstrong has more on the new measures. is of course, as for a non working period of around about 9 days, just a little over a week from october 30th to november, the 7th. now, of course, that could be extended if those measures do nothing to combat those rising cold cases in russia course recently, in russia there has been a re reports of over $34000.00 daily co v cases that has been a national high. the highest is been since the virus emerged, the on saturday figures were released of over a 1000 and dest daily. that was also
4:20 pm
a new record. now, president putin has today said there is a need to break the chain of to spread the virus and to never underestimate the seriousness of the situation. now let's just get a little bit more on what exactly president putin said. mister lennox is leaving him. unfortunately, we see what dangerous consequences the low level of vaccination in our country has led to. i will repeat once again, the vaccine really reduces the risk of illness, as well as possible severe complications from that illness and even the risk of death invalid. i emphasized the need to increase the pace of explanation, and of course, i once again urge all of us citizens to be actively vaccinate issues. it's about your protection about your safety, about your life after all, about the health of your family resources. so of course, as you just heard, there it is very much a case of personal responsibility to go out and get the vaccine. and the criminal has said time. and again, the all russians do have the facilities needed to go out and get the job. now that
4:21 pm
low percentage of population that have been vaccinated, so far, the president putin was talking about is around about 33 percent of the nation. that's 47300000 russians who have had the jap, 9 day working period to a non working period. rather now, or a mini lockdown, just a combat, those that, those covey cases, it could come in to effect earlier in regions that have a particularly high rate of the cold cases. around about october, the 23rd president, putin saying to the russian population, go out and get that vaccine and take it upon yourself to go and get inoculated. this is our say on the way facebook faces is a multi $1000000.00 bill for preferring foreign workers over americans. just one of our store is still a head off of the break. ah
4:22 pm

4:23 pm
or remain in the shallows. ah, well again now with the security situation in afghanistan deteriorating taliban leaders of bait in moscow this wednesday for talks focusing on the humanitarian crisis that's grips the ball, told nations. 11 countries participated in the conference. now senior correspond america as the f reports next from the meeting venue. this has been the biggest international events, attended by the taliban. yet 11 countries present. all of us got astonished neighbors as well as russia, china, india, will representing near enough half of the world's population. the aim here wasn't a concrete objective to agree on something. it was rather to discuss where to go from here because we're at something of a stalemate. where by the taliban rules of kansas fog,
4:24 pm
but the international community east largely reluctant to recognize the taliban as the official government, as the official rulers of, of got a sudden and on the death, an intended consequences that has been that the life and struggle of ordinary afghans has been getting worse and that was in the joint statement that all sides involve at his side. as of now, a 3rd of the population is on the verge of starvation. taliban has said that it is open to foreign aid for humanitarian aid, food medicine being delivered, so long as the conditions attached. don't violate their sovereignty or religious principles. one, a peaceful afghanistan is in the interest of all parties involved. just as we want . positive relations with others, we also see positive relations from the outside. we are committed to the principles of islamic sharia law. many aid are assistance that has been given and if it's in line with ours law, mac principles, we don't have a problem with it. we're already receiving some humanitarian aid. the session
4:25 pm
itself a all the delegates met to place bod closed doors. we were told, there were many things that they agreed on, such as the need to stop, knock trafficking out of up guy to stop the need to address the security situation that the, the attacks by isis, al qaeda and other terrorist groups there. but will to also have disagreements, disagreements about the makeup of the african government to tell about, insisting that it's government is inclusive other countries, such as russia saying that it isn't as inclusive as it needs to be. that this government is, is packed with taliban officials. hard like taliban officials were passion at this is the predominant taliban efficiency. there is very little representation by ethnic minorities, all political dissidents, political opposition groups. and that is something that must change. but russia also says that the, the urgent power t, now at east to make sure humana erin aid is delivered to i've got to stop by every one for you which is moved is do we are convinced that it's time to mobilize the
4:26 pm
efforts of the world community to provide cobble with effective financial, economic and humanitarian assistance. in order to prevent a crisis and to curb migration flows, we expect responsible behavior towards afghan citizens. first and foremost from western countries. it was 20 year presence brought about the current deplorable situation and didn't in any way contribute in strengthening industrial or economic spheres. and afghanistan again, 11 countries here, all of of got assad's neighbors, plus russia, plus china, priests plus india all countries. the vested interest in making sure that i've got a son remains stable. the u. s. delegation by the way was invited, but the united states had it was unable to attend because of logistical challenges . another similar in the event of moscow format, east plant, there is no dates yet, but we'll get isis have told us that they're ready once the need $1000000.00 in
4:27 pm
a civil case over discrimination. the u. s. social media giants accused of getting preference to hiring foreign workers over americans. facebook, he is not about the law and must comply with our nations federal civil rights laws, which prohibit discriminatory recruitment in hiring practices. the fact giant gives certain positions mainly to temporary visa holders. prosecutors claim that up to $2600.00 us work is lost out as a result. facebook with them find almost at $5000000.00 and is paying out more than $9000000.00 in compensation to victims of the lawsuit against the tech giant was filed last year by the u. s. justice department. back then, the trump administration pushed the biggest tech companies to hire more americans for permanent positions, instead of temporary foreign workers. legal analyst, jennifer de master, explain to his wife facebook in particular were adopted that policy. facebook and some of these other companies will watch these immigrants. it's a way for facebook to save money,
4:28 pm
while also preventing maybe lawsuits for unfair or discriminatory work practices. which in and of itself is discriminatory against actual united states citizens that we're applying for work and unable to get a company like facebook, with a lot of money would be able, their, their high price attorneys, or be able to find a case that had no claims but again, it's been brought by the department of justice itself. i think it's very surprising to people. many people who see facebook or some of the social media platforms is an arm of a political party. so it's kind of being this distinction drawn between this, what we consider politicize, or a bite and era department of justice, which should be friends with facebook. actually bringing a discrimination claim against, you know, this, this partner. so this story might be used by either the federal government, by the new situation, or by facebook to argue that the way we are different, you know, we, we,
4:29 pm
we can be held accountable right above the law. when in reality they've been working hand in hand for a long time, because acting as an arts of most many political federal agencies in order to st. silence political opponents. nepotism storm has had leading us democratic party representative maxine waters who's head of the house financial services committee after it was exposed to her daughter has again pocketed vast campaign funds, financial disclosure, records prevail. she played karen waters more than $80000.00 over the fiscal year. which ended last month that shapes the total for karen's, received from her mother over a decade long career, to up to more than one point. 1000000. she's been paid for running an uncommon federal practice called state mailing. or a consulting firm is hired to list rival candidates and their policies and advisors who to vote for the congresswoman now faces coals to go. this is how
4:30 pm
democrat socialists work. they take care of their own while people they represent lose jobs, pay high taxes, and in many cases go homeless. i am calling on the resignation of maxine waters. she needs to be investigated. maxine waters did this before and face no legal consequences. she knows she isn't going to face legal consequences. now. the law fairly vague, all new as politicians using campaign funds to pay family members with election commission rules are lead, amounting the salaries don't exceed the fair market value of jealous daniela's act . claims that such behavior is essentially corrupt, but nothing will change the american political system as saturating with this kind of corruption. i just, i, it just goes on and on. no one pays attention to it. every one regards it as normal .
