4:06 pm
the outrage over these comments post domestically and internationally? can it be calmed? see? first of all, any kind of violence in the name of sod demoss titian and protest should be condemned because any kind of protest and demonstration should be within the 4 walls of indian laws and prostitution. but, you know, we should really understand the source of this anger infestation and why it does now spilling on through the streets. it is an accumulated anger and frustration, you know, because of the failure of the state and because of the week of the floor in the last few h. u, as we've seen laws which were outright lead a disconnect tree against, from a since we've seen wilander on the streets, whether it comes to lynching or the was him houses big windows to these by the state agencies to all of this is now accumulated into this angle, which is spilling onto the streets. i think what, what can be done right now is some part of it i think has been taken care of by the
4:07 pm
government when they decided to expel the to the does, would responsible for making those dental get treated moss. but then also many police. they filed and f i r a b against these 2 people. but i think what i was, it was on now demand demanding is also not just this particular case in sight, but also the in general, that most filler and the climate. all of the you know, hatred of the state policies that now gothic mama was integrity to slum. now he's an alternate be sped. so and you understand this emotional and religious attachment to profit, mama, i feel at this point in time, the government should start with of the drawing. the cases in con for read more than 800 people, a book the of people who what, who have unfairly been booked. that's one to the feminist with india, a should thumb all and address the nation. i would say a particularly the 200000000 muslims,
4:08 pm
and i've tried to assure them that they will be advice and freedoms will be protected in india as guaranteed by the constitution. but i come back to the original question. is it possible for the government to keep a lid on this or have things already gone? gone too far? you used? you said that it's not just that the comments that were made last weekend offensive though they were, it's a long held belief that the government in india is anti muslim. well, i think what a muslim sneed right now, and what should be state policy at this moment? is healing. touch? what indian was since, really need from the government of india, from the prime minister, who's a very popular prime minister by the way, that he should give assurance that was since rights the property the right to to life and will be protected. and also david not to be discriminated against. and now what i'm trying to say here is that prime minister him sent something on screen and a shortening people of india, especially the most since should suffice for some of thank us. but then it has to
4:09 pm
be more institutional than just lip service than just try to, you know, do on the, there's a sailor like it was done in case of expanding these 2 spokespersons. because remember everything, whatever the b to be spokesperson said that while it's in the law of which a clearly says that he should not be a you know, that does it just sentimental, almost since for heart. so it should have been taken care of legally, not just internally expelling these people from the body membership it this came through late and through little and that is why you see the anger spilling onto the streets. but i feel even previously what i, what has been done a vendor formally by the union empty most in laws on informally, by the if the sole support network, which is the b g, b and assess these, they do nationalist organizations who switch for support. so just a day keep harassing me since they used violence. they use just cabinetry practices
4:10 pm
. i think prime minister as also be one of the member of thought assess member of the b g b and also the prime minister of india. he should try to a shore people of india, especially muslims, that you know, these discrimination and a disconnection of that they would be noticed future discrimination on he would take care of it legally. good structure personally for being with us. overcome shawanda attempted to a brazen attempt to overthrow the government. that's how a u. s. congressional committee as described last year's attack on capitol hill. the hearing is also investigating donald trump's continuing denials that he lost the 2020 presidential election that he won. rather the presidential that he lost, rather, i'm sorry, hydro castro reports out for washington. oh, this is what police saw on january 6th, 2021. when they were overwhelmed by
4:11 pm
a mob trying to overturn president donald trump's election defeat capital police officer carol and edward was the 1st of many officers to be injured. there were officers on the ground. ah, you know, they were bleeding, they were throwing up. they were, you know, they had, i mean, i saw friends with blood all over their faces. i was slipping in people's blood while riders vandalized the capital and threatened to kill members of congress. trump was watching it all unfold on tv from the white house. according to committee, investigators trump ignored please from advisors and trapped members of congress to call off the riders. aware of the rioters chance to hang mike pence, the president responded with this sentiment quote, maybe our supporters have the right idea. mike pence quote,
4:12 pm
deserves it. committee investigators also argued that a trump tweet in december was the impetus for far right groups to plan the insurrection. showing videotape depositions of writers, confirming their motives, he personally asked for us to come to dc that. and i thought, for everything he's known for us. if it's the only thing he can go after me, i'll do all of us here today. then there was the ongoing effort led by trump to falsely claimed the election had been stolen. the committee showed video of den attorney general bill bar testifying that the claim was in fact a lie. i made it clear. i did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out the stuff which i told the president was bolt. and i, you know, i didn't want to be a part of it. investigator say trump didn't listen, but his daughter yvonne cut told them she did. i respect attorney general bar. so
4:13 pm
a accepted what he sent was sent, according to the committee chairman, taken as a whole, the riot and the efforts to overturn the election was nothing short of a coup attempt. a 1st in american history, january 6, was the culmination of an attempted cou, a brazen attempt as one right to put it shortly after january 6 to overthrow the government. then republican leaders in congress remain the former president's defenders. in fact, it is the most political and least legitimate committee in american history. it is used congressional subpoenas to attack republicans violate due process and infringe on the political speech a private citizen. this was just the explosive beginning to a half dozen more public hearing scheduled for his mind. there promised to feature
4:14 pm

4:15 pm
was to disrupt that process and try to make it possible for donald trump to remain as this country's president. instead of handing over power peacefully to joe biden, who ended up winning the 2020 election, the select committee is basically revealing a summary over 6 hearings of the evidence it has collected. that includes interviews with people who worked in the trump white house. people who were witnesses to the scenes outside of the u. s. capital and inside the u. s. capital on january 6th. as well as other evidence. we're trying to put together what the select committee believes was an overarching conspiracy to try to disrupt the democratic, a transfer of power. so whether people watched or didn't watch, certainly, you know, they were reacting to it on social media. we saw the members of the republican minority here on capitol hill pre butting or rebutting the committee's findings
4:16 pm
before the 1st of the 6 hearings happened on thursday evening. so what happens next rose? well, there are 5 more hearings. the next one will be this coming monday, the june 13th. and we are expecting to hear from the select committee. more information about how the former president donald trump, was trying to both put pressure on his vice president mike pence as well as undermine his authority. because it is the vice president who presides over the process in the house of representatives to certify the election during the transfer period in the united states. so there's going to be much more information coming out. and the question will be whether more of people in this country actually believe that what happened on january 6th was an attempt to disrupt the democratic process. i'm serious. rosalind jordan reporting live from capitol hill,

hesitate to start a war over taiwan. during a meeting with the us defense secretary, the to met of asians biggest security summit, washington is calling on basing to refrain from further destabilizing actions. south africa, as president says that due process must be followed after he was shouted down in parliament by opposition, lawmakers of allegations of corruption of bribery. so ronald closer is accused of trying to cover up a robbery at his game farm in february, evolving millions of dollars. he says the funds will private and not public money and that he won't be responding to insults or speculation. i will do all these matches consideration against the backdrop of the advise i have. but this meta should be ventilated in the proper enact procreate forums. and i repeat that hello must take its course

4:32 pm
this was not reported or when it should have been given this sum of money that was allegedly stolen. and not only that, but also members of the presidential protection unit track down the thieves, interrogated them, potentially tortured them and then paid them off to keep quiet. and so now opposition parties, south africans in general, are wanting answers from the president. because of that large sum of money and how he may potentially be implicated in money laundering. it's really needed to be understood by many here why the president had so much money at his home. and if that a theft happened and, and, and what the implications are of not reporting it to the police. he has admitted the theft did indeed take place. but that he can account for all of that money in his home. it was due to the sale of game off his farm in limpopo and that he had declared that to parliament at the time. the president though, has maintained this line for out this latest scandal in that he will not answer
4:33 pm
specific questions at this time. but he's also prepared to stand before the african national congress. that's his party's ethics committee to answer whatever questions they might have. but he says, as you mentioned earlier, due process should follow. and he's willing to cooperate or how dangerous is this for the president? from it is a very difficult political. your fossil rama pasa and the african national congress at large. it's an elective congress here, and this is when they will pick a new president of the party. he is certainly looking for a 2nd term, given the level of corruption in south africa and the stance that the president has taken against corruption. this is certainly not a, could a good british position for him to be in, in that he is now a facing these type of allegations. given that he is the face of the fight against corruption and has called this period of the a and see the new dawn but seems to be falling short of that constantly. the,
4:34 pm
it's politically they will be some difficulties for the president, especially given the history with the former president, jacob summa, and the allegations of corruption that he faced and the ongoing inquiries into corruption in south africa. so for prison, sl ramah bossa and the african national congress at large a very difficult time. but given the due process and the legalities around it, it may be some time before we hear anything more from the president or having face criminal charges specifically, or perhaps see his position with the agency affected. alpha 0 from emitter reporting live there from johannesburg from albany. thanks. and it the u. k. government's plan to send asylum seekers to lawanda is facing a legal challenge. london's high court is hearing arguments from human rights groups which say that the policy is unlawful. the calling for a court injunction to stop 1st flights from the u. k to rwanda, which is scheduled for next week. let's go live with the high court in london

4:36 pm
convention because it doesn't assess each person's claim individually. they say that people are being punished simply for claiming asylum because the government's approach is that anyone who arrives after january the 1st in the u. k, as they put it illegally by crossing the english channel and a small boat mainly can be sent to rwanda. they're also, i'm querying the governments assessment of rwanda as a safe 3rd country to send people to saying it doesn't have the capacity. it doesn't have the of the proper human rights record that they would wish i'm talking about political persecutions. crackdowns on l g b t q people. and they're mentioning the distress that it's already cause people who've been put on the list there have been hunger strikes in detention centers here and saying that it could cause wide problems with hundreds of people potentially affected. why, nadine, does the british government want to send asylum seekers to render?
