8:07 am
lines. ah, in spite of the dangers, the team led by the international atomic energy director, i filed aussie moved ahead to begin the much expected visit. go glossy, said he was able to inspect vital equipment. i worry i worried. i worry and i will continue to be worried about the plant until we have a situation which is more stable, which is more predictable. it is obvious that that that plan and the physical integrity of the plant has been violated several times by chance, by deliberation. moscow says, keep sent a sabotage team to try to recover europe's largest. no power plant that's been under russian control since march. first of all, roosevelt at 6 20 am to teams of ukrainians saboteurs. 60 men stroll. you 7 speed boats attempted to land banks of the kafka water reservoir,

8:09 am
scientists. he says the i e i is mission is crucial. i think this mission is very important and just to have the ability of a 3rd party, relatively impartial group, assessing what's going on was very important. unfortunately, of the main part of the mission only seem to have lasted a few hours there about 5 i. e, a, inspectors still there for a few days and there may be an enduring presence after that, but to really get a sense of all the potential damage in the state of the equipment and the state of mind of the workers there that seem really need to be there longer and to have more expensive inspection the reactors themselves are under reinforced concrete containment building. so they have some level of protection, but they are vulnerable to it, to damage to other parts of the plans that are not as well protected primarily the
8:10 am
off site power source as well as the emergency on site power sources. these are not as well protected as we've seen the off site power has gone down a few times already recent weeks, forcing some of the reactors to shut down. and nuclear power plants are vulnerable if they don't have access to reliable, stable offsite power. so that, that is the major concern. india is commissioning its 1st home built a craft carrier. the ins of the crowds, prime minister in reference ramadi is attending the ceremony. and could she celebrating the landmark event? it's the culmination of 17 years of construction and tastes and makes it one of the few countries able to design and commission a ship like this. above name ital joins us live from new delhi into physical. how big a deal is this for india?

8:23 am

8:25 am
decent attention, schooling, and much, much more effective. this would be the 1st constitution in the world. the civically recognizes the problems of climate change and the need to protect the environment with some very, very strict articles. and that's what the people here say goes too far, that it would make it difficult for minors and for investment in this country. other than that though, there is, there are a lot of doubts about the details. the demo, as we say, is in the details. so both people on the approve and the reject side have said that if this constitution goes through more changes have, would have to be made. perhaps the most interesting thing of all is that this will be the 1st next in ever where will be mandatory for everybody to vote in including people who had not previously registered. that means millions of young people will go to the polls for the 1st time and it's still unclear. just wouldn't how that
8:26 am
will go. so far, the polls indicate that the majority of june of finance are going to reject this constitution as it stands now. and are asking for it to do for the country to start all over again and rewrite a new constitution, which would be at least in theory, ready in a year's time. but if it does, when, if they're brutal, i does, when only by a very, very small margin. again, it, it is still too close to call at this point, but we'll have to see what those millions of tenants who never voted before will decide when they go to the polls on sunday. police and chilly have confronted high school students, protesting in the capital santiago. wow. the demonstrators won't the government to improve the conditions at public schools. they're also demanding access to affordable higher education. poland says it will demand $1.00 trillion dollars in world war 2,
8:27 am
reparations from germany. this follows the release of a report on the costs of the nazi occupation of poland from 1959 to 945. poland. right. when governments is the country has not been fully compensated from that kind reports from berlin. when german forces attacked, poland in 1939 adore hitler said he was writing historic wrongs done to his country . the war he started would leave the continent in ruins and kill tens of millions of people. few suffered more than the poles. one in 6 of them died under german occupation. nearly 2 thirds of their industry was destroyed. more than 3 quarters of their infrastructure was ruined. now the modern polish date believes the modern german state should pay. yes, awesome. i love the palmer 1.3 trillion years is a very serious some. but considering payment of his kind of compensation is spread over decades. it's a somewhat german economy can perfectly overcome about being crushed. the
8:28 am
compensation paid to france for the 1st world war damages stopped any 10 years ago . right. so this summer's, quite realistic now, but not to modern german eyes, successive governments of said a deal in 1953, between the communist governments in warsaw and berlin waved poland claim for compensation. the present polish government says its predecessor was forced by the soviets to make the offer, and so it should not count. in one sense, germany has already lost much around a quarter of its territory, was annexed by the usaa and poland after the war. millions of people who had lived there were evicted at accepting the loss of this territory was key to bringing about german reunification after the cold war. be by there are some who say the current polish government may be using the restorations argument to make political capital at home,
