12:07 pm
traveled to germany weasel a false identity with russian passports we also know that he was assisted by russian artillery tease after he's arrest so that's what the prosecutor will try to determine during that trial the session today was quite short it will resume tomorrow we had to cope plaintive bring their testimonies. the trial of course coming at a time where relations between germany and russia are already strained so how is this trial impacting the state of affairs. well the relations are very strained indeed and not least seen sane of on these poisoning late august and i say the vani who was and here taken in charge by the charity hospital here in berlin say yeah the relations were already strained between germany and russia and if the russian rest poncy believed she appears to be clear i have to divert big
12:08 pm
that we expect here in january well if russia is proven to be a restaurant cboe then of course germany might take measures against russia in the form for example of economy extensions how could germany where yakked should the court role that russia was behind the killing as it is it only those ships sanctions that are on the table or is there something more well we can imagine sanctions i just mentioned the economy as we saw the last december in light of these cases of what is now known as the tea gotten murder well germany had expelled 2 russian diplomats from ballina and moscow had retaliated by expelling. 2 german diplomats as well so we can see an escalating tension between russia and germany we can also imagine some sanctions that will affect the gas line the guy

the q. and conspiracy movement the social media company says that the move is part of its efforts to clamp down on misinformation ahead of the u.s. election and promotes stories alleging u.s. president trump is waging a secret war against an international pedophile. and white house senior adviser steven miller has tested positive for the coronavirus he's the latest in u.s. president donald trump's inner circle to contain the virus it comes as trump again downplayed the illness on twitter he's being treated for covert 19 at the white house after spending 3 nights in the hospital. well as the u.s. gets ready to vote in just under 4 weeks many in india are paying close attention over the past decade thousands of indians have flocked to the u.s. many of them applying their skills in the country's flourishing i thousands sector
12:11 pm
but the coronavirus pandemic and the trumpet ministrations clamp down on these as have some concerns about the future. reports. it's an election on the other side of the world but opinions on it abound on the streets of delhi. and if you go into. the 4th part that they view and people went for sure. so from my perspective i think donald trump will be a better president so i feel the job within the definitely put india and he would be better for the u.s. as well to serve it comes in the persian gulf for us the relationship of n.p.r.'s would be much much better but for some here the result of that election so far we could be life changing neely's jog nick a software engineer to google lived in the us for 6 years when india started canceling flights amid the could only crisis in march he rushed home to his family now despite a valid reason he no longer feels confident about returning to silicon valley tanks
12:12 pm
to confusing restrictions on immigrants from the current administration. need leashes decision to return will hinge on whether trump is reluctant i am very worried about a 2nd person than don't because. who's to say what other laws will come in i can't just go back and have. my life begin away from me again. his sister simran wants to study design in the u.s. but the what putting their plans on hold until they see the outcome of the election . some the advantages to continue trump presidency under garments export these immense value for his one sector in trump tough stance on china. it is for sure. imposed on china
12:13 pm
chinese goods and chinese exports and the move. there have been. big plays with india and with those potential treaties he believes could be boosted by trump's camaraderie that india's prime minister now deemed more. for now indian workers here will put plans on hold. until the signal comes from the next american president. and for more i'm joined now by chief international editor richard walker here in the studio richard i mean we're talking about 2 leaders here the thais have deepened in recent years and a lot of that has to do with their personal relationship how strong is that i mean they really are an interesting donald trump and to render a modi i mean both of them kind of falling into this sort of broad category of this wave of populist nationalists that we've seen coming to power many important countries around the world and you really saw that on display earlier this year i
12:14 pm
was actually in delhi in february earlier this year when donald trump came to visit . and rolled out the red carpet big time for that visit not just in the capital delhi itself but also. at a major rally in his home state of gujarat so this was really kind of inviting him to his home turf and putting on really a trump style rally but not in an american football stadium but a cricket stadium and good. iraq and they you really saw you know the kind of ideological similarities that they have you know trump is kind of anti immigration and stands up for the head of america's white majority. modi is a hindu nationalist standing up for india's hindu majority and perceived as really being quite against india's muslim minority so a lot of similarities there and that has also obviously kind of brought those 2 countries together with both of those men in power and you see reflected in
12:15 pm
popularity figures. trump is that has actually 56 percent approval in india which is a striking number and it goes beyond their brand of politics though i mean we also have the issue of the strategic element the issue of neutral interests that you have that's right i mean although these personalities are important that definitely not the whole picture and here is really all about china the rise of china as a superpower really a genuine superpower now and that is really affecting both countries the u.s. and china we've seen really this is the year where people are beginning to recognize we're on the brink of a new cold war between the u.s. and china and india is also affected too because china's rise is beginning to rub up against india as well we've seen that flare up in their border region in the remote himalayan mountains they've been clashes there with dozens of soldiers killed and that's a disputed border there's been an unresolved dispute for decades but this is really
12:16 pm
flared out now and so both countries are kind of facing this assertive even aggressive china and thinking how we're going to deal with that and that is bringing them closer together also with other countries other democratic countries in the region for instance japan australia together with the u.s. and india beginning to form this grouping called the quad which is really going to be something interesting to see as a kind of a new grouping to try to sort of try to. provide a democratic response for china and also. the western world western europe is also interested in closer relations with india so india's role in the world is becoming much much more important as a kind of counterpoint to china the chief international editor richard walker walking us through all of that thank you. now to germany where the number of new coronavirus infections recorded on tuesday was over 2800
12:17 pm
a surge in cases in berlin especially has prompted the city to announce new curfews for bars and cafes as well as stricter rules for gathering and groups aaron tilton went out onto the streets to find out how people are reacting. welcome to germany's new coronavirus flashpoint berlin after months of staving off the worst of the pandemic the german capital has become the frontline in the country's fight against the virus half of all of germany's high risk areas are located here in this city including the district of. gatherings with little sign a social distancing are a common sight here most of the new infections are among young people under the age of 30 they're more likely to shrug off the infection but the diseases spread is also picking up pace among the old forcing berlin city government to take action there introducing new restrictions from saturday compelling bars in stores to close at 11 and limiting alcohol sales as well as the size of private gatherings not
12:18 pm
everyone supports the changes. yes you can just say much it's a hard question i think it's actually the bars are open so long but you have to maintain social distancing and i think as long as people do that it shouldn't be a problem to sit in the bar until late at night. you know i think the same i think everyone can keep themselves in check regardless of how much alcohol they drink at least i can keep a grip on myself so i don't understand why others can't do that. but many support the new measures. of a man up big vision you need to balance your own sensibilities against a virus that puts others' lives at risk you can feed the mention in that case i think the measures are justified the. warning system is flashing red and that's forced the government to take action and while most people we've spoken to say they support the restrictions that still hasn't stopped the spread of the corona virus here in the german capital. and we
12:19 pm
turn now back to our top story because this year's nobel prize in chemistry has been awarded jointly emmanuelle. and to jennifer. the 2 scientists are from france and the united states respectively and they are credited with the development of a way of editing d. and a the royal swedish academy of sciences said that the gene technology is contributing to do therapeutic and cancer and inherited diseases they are the 6th and the 7th women to win this prestigious prize. pictures. and let's pray indeed derek well yes from d.w. science to tell us a little bit more about this i mean these announcements are often a surprise but was this one for you no this was actually the one i've got it right the 3rd one right out of about 50 but actually that's not really it's not really having a crystal ball these these 2 researchers are really kind of kind of pop stars and
12:20 pm
in the science world and just because this discovery was so groundbreaking and so game changing in so many different ways even though it was really only discovered in the 1st publications came out years ago people have been expecting them to actually get this prize either for chemistry or for or for medicine for a few years now which is practically unheard of actually in the know about of the world but it's just proven itself over and over and over again in so many different areas everything from cancer research to industry that's based on bio engineered microorganisms for example it's just it's everywhere and actually they probably would have gotten it earlier if there hadn't been some patent issues or a patent battle going on with another research group that that. has been going on for a few years and is now largely resolved general jennifer doll and herself said you know we came up with with the patent we have the patent for tennis balls they came
12:21 pm
up with a patent for green tennis balls and so that's why these 2 researchers are actually such have become such icons in in this world because of the groundbreaking nature of. what they discovered so break it down for us derek what makes it so special well what makes it special is when you when you want to do bioengineers something when you want to change some things in the genetic code you need to be very very precise because if you aren't precise when you try to cut cut the d.n.a. and or insert d.n.a. and if you don't do it in exactly the right place you can get what are called off target effects now we've had systems for changing for altering the genome since really the 1980 s. but they were very very cumbersome the thing about the crisper cats 9 system is that is that it's not it's a fairly straightforward method that you can use to cut and alter the genome and it's not only it's not only that it's also fairly fairly cheap to use and it's
12:22 pm
simple enough that every lab can really or practically any lab can employ it so it's not it's simply not as cumbersome you that's fast it's efficient and it's exact and all of those things have really changed the face of bio engineering in a way that is absolutely i'm really glad that they finally got the prize i've been predicting it for years along with lots of other finally finally we got it right you know t.v. is there equality of thanks so much. now iranian sports have taken a step forward toward equality between men and women for the 1st time iran will officially have a female powerlifting team taking part in an international competition for women already competing in the sport is a welcome and a long overdue initiative. iranian foreign honey repairs meals for her family. and she's also preparing to officially compete as a power lifter for iran for the 1st time the 29 year old has been active in the
12:23 pm
sport for several years and saw some success but the competitions weren't recognized now they will be the hours of pumping iron are finally paying off. my opinion this is some of the best news i've received since i've been active in powerlifting. i'm sure the support of the federation inspire a lot of unknown talents around the country to blossom and step forward. and they've been hesitant to do so. but it will be a lot better for powerlifting women to have the support of the federation. still. some iranians have a negative view of women in power lifting her and he believes that could change if she succeeds in international competition the idea of female power lifting has already generated some enthusiasm time will tell if iran has the potential to
