ah, reminder of the top stories here on al jazeera, the european union is stepping up in sanctions targeting belarus. as the migrant crisis only see some border worsens. thousands of migrates of a mast on the border with poland and freezing conditions. the u. s. says the crisis is aimed at distracting from a significant russian military build up on the border with ukraine. nato secretary general has called a russia to be transparent about his activities to prevent an escalation. and donald trump's former political advisor, steve bannon, has appeared in court of the handing himself into the f. b. i is facing contempt
12:33 am
charges for refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the attack on the u. s . capital lawyers are making their closing arguments in the trial of the american teenager, coll rittenhouse. he's charged with murdering to man and wounding a 3rd after he opened fire with a semi automatic rifle during black lives matter protests. he's pleaded not guilty and says he acted in self defense, but face is life in prison. if convicted by a jury earlier, his defense team managed to have one of the charges dismissed. or john henderson is live in kenosha, wisconsin. john, you've been following this closely. the, this is of course, a politically and racially charged case and more of court. one of the, one of the most watched widely watched trials in the u. s. a. at the moment. what are you hearing that as this case wraps up there? well, the defense is now wrapping up it's case. and ultimately, although it's
12:34 am
a politically and racially divisive case, it comes down to really one question was kyle written house, a defender or was the a provocative tour? and that's what's happening in the closing argument right now. the defense is the 2nd to go. the prosecution is already made, its case in the defense is saying essentially that this is a young man whose life was a threat that he was chased down by protesters in the middle of a black lives that are protest. and he was armed with an a r 15, and he used that weapon to defend himself, out of fear that someone was going to take it away and hurt him. the prosecution has made an entirely different case. now there's a dispute on both sides as to the 1st of 3 people that cow rittenhouse shot, in that case, a man named jacob rosenbaum did pursue kyle written house, written has turned round, fired 4 shots, and killed him. well, at that point, the prosecution says as far as the crowd was concerned, he was no longer defending himself if he was initially in the prosecution denies
12:35 am
that. they say that at that point it was the crowd that had the right to self defense. and that's why certain members of the crowd continued to chase, col. rittenhouse, who then turned around, shot one more person dead, and then injured a 3rd. that 3rd person testified here. so the prosecution case is turning that self defense argument on its head saying in fact, it was the crowd at that point that was trying to shut down an active shooter. but this is really a national war shock test here in the u. s. what you see depends on where you stand largely on gun rights and if cow rittenhouse gets off, that would be a victory for them. any gun rights advocates who are supporting and financially and just vocally here, but most of the nation so far has made up its mind on this case. we know that the challenge is, is you've been to, they're all complex. they've been changing as well. what all the challenges he faces said now what is it that the jury has to consider in these closing hours
12:36 am
with a range from 1st degree murder originally all the way down to curfew. breaking. there were 7 charges, including reckless endangerment for firing a weapon with other people around. but essentially the judge has dropped the 2 least serious charges early on. he dropped the curfew charge and then just this afternoon or this morning, rather, he dropped another charge that accused cow rittenhouse, if legally carrying a weapon as a minor. now it should be said rittenhouse did by the gun through someone else because he wasn't old enough to buy it. but there were some dispute as to whether there's a loophole in the law here that allows the gun of a certain size. and in any case, the judge dropped that charge. so really what's up now is a minimum charge of reckless endangerment that brings a penalty of up to 12 and a half years in a maximum charge of 1st degree murder. that one brings a charge of life imprisonment. so the jury really. busy has to decide among very serious charges at this point. one of the thing that happened is the prosecution
12:37 am
asked for new secondary charges. so instead of 1st degree murder in one case, 2nd degree murder. for 2 of those counts. what that means is, 1st of all, it's suggested the prosecution wasn't really sure it was going to be able to get those 1st degree chargers. second of all, it gives them another bite of the apple, another shot to convince to convict coll rittenhouse of something in a case where they're not sure they're going to get anything done. a 100 live in could osha, wisconsin? thank you. now the u. k. his raises terror threat level to severe after a taxi exploded outside a hospital in liverpool, on sunday, british prime minister boys johnson says it was a reminder of the need to remain vigilant. police have declared it an act of terror and a questioning fool men. they've named the man who died as 32 year old m at outs way . mean that he baba reports the drop off point at liverpool women's hospital in northwest england. it's just before 11 a. m and

12:39 am
enquiries indicate that an improvised explosive device has been manufactured. and our assumption so far is it, it was built by the passenger in the taxi. the reason why he then took it to the women's hospital is unknown. as is the reason for its sudden explosion, the police say the passenger had asked to go to the hospital, but they're checking whether there's any link with remembrance day events nearby on sunday, nadine baba al jazeera, there's a new lockdown in place in austria, but only for people who haven't been fully vaccinated around 2000000 people can now only leave home to buy essential goods, seek medical care, all get their vaccine. case rates that are up. and the big issue going into winter is that only 2 thirds of people awfully vaccinated. dominic cane reports just to be allowed outdoors. these people must be able to prove they've either been vaccinated or recently had cove it what's called in german, that's fi, gay,

12:41 am
a federal level, there seems no clear policy. unlike the situation in austria, the caretaker government here is an office, but not really in power. the politicians who matter still trying to build a majority in parliament. and while they argue over, who gets which ministerial job in the next few weeks, it's what cove it might do in the next few days. but many people in wider society are worrying about this intensive care unit in munich is one of many across the country which are full of coven patience with the prospect of more to come the well, the incidental wonky deny. in fact, on that, if we look at the new infections registered in the past 2 weeks, we see an increase from 30250000. this also shows up in the occupancy rates of you intensive care. patients have doubled, and these 50000 people who have tested positive now will come to us this week or next week on. so the future looks quite dark, i would say. and we're quite worried about how we're going to take care of all
12:42 am
these people. as an official e, you figure suggest around 2 thirds of the population have been fully vaccinated for them. it means attendance at festive events like these in vienna are no problem. but for the 3rd, who remain unvaccinated, at least in austria, for now, lock downs are looming. something similar may soon be coming to germany, dawn, it came, al jazeera, berlin, an american journalist sentence to 11 years jail. and ma'am on the last week has been released from prison, donnie. fen stow was charged with incitement as well as terrorism and sedition. he stopped talking cattle on his way home to the us. natasha. her name spoke to him just off to his plane, touched down. ah danny fencer cast a frail figure as he stepped off the plane that carried him out of me and mark and home to freedom. the 37 year old american journalist spoke to reporters briefly
