6:32 pm
allow now i'm not really. we are here today because we have suffered a loss we are here today because we experience only bad governance we are here today because our country is run by a family and because our economy is not doubt we here today because we've seen that our institutions have failed in their mission that is why we are here today why i'm going to get along what i got from not what got him. as the turmoil festered rumors that the military would weigh in turned out to be true. president ibrahim boubacar cato was forced to resign and the soldiers and now asked they would restore order. in october they formed a new government with civilian participation. $121.00 representatives make up mollies interim legislature there politicians activists trade unionists and of
6:33 pm
course the military officers with a collective task of bringing in reforms over a period of 18 months. that we are here to fight and this is continuing the logical continuation of the struggle will lead within the opposition to bring about this change so long awaited by molly and. the fall for the i think that we're going to move forward together because it's in manny's interest and i also think that beyond misunderstandings the military to love manly and so we're going to meet again for transparent credible elections to give a strong democratic republic and secular institutions and this requires peace and reconciliation. but a key block of the opposition group known as the june 5 movement which led the mass protest in the 1st place has boycotted the interim council it describes it as a military regime in disguise. from on design knowledge oin by car you'll go after

6:36 pm
20 or region throughout 13 which i've been. to need to read. 2 figures so is there is clearly a transition which is more military civilians and civilian military everything what i mean do you smell something fishy here comes we trust the process. i don't think we only have to look at what is happening in terms of nominations of course it is a matter of concerns to our much more military than t.v.'s are leading the country but it is also important to look at what kind of decision are sick and presently for instance we can see is that there is an agreement between the prime minister. and the military including your president and vice presidents and go to not to go
6:37 pm
through negotiations with radical groups and i think it is a very important went to take into account but until the side you also have a result on the. station and. lots of strikes for instance on the number of syndicates i think we have to wait ok we'll be waiting for that briefly how much support or not it's called from the original body of course all what is just on by to see what happens next. i think that's we definitely have to take some position about is this fact and sit gentile as it's still in place it's not has been dissolved and also the dives in fact that there is a lot of need to hurry which are presently appointed in their regions as well as he was there you just answered but you also on the commission i. did think you're going to be an important you is also a matter of. ok now jolly by yoko africa security and that's what

6:41 pm
going to. like. i'm sure what. is going to be going to. finally for the stadium. less than one. training center of the kaiser chiefs stadium. nobody knows what's going on. shortly afterwards the kaiser chiefs manager shows up and tells the team the code results are not ready yet the match is postponed for another hour. after the way the team finally gets to the stadium journalists and fans are not allowed to enter due to coverage regulations.
6:42 pm
but they don't miss a lot. of the lame game ends in the middle draw. the well paid cause the chiefs dominate for myself i think they don't cover themselves with glory. there was disappointment after the match for the jetlag cameroonian side it's a bunch of mixed feelings and a lot of good things from these 2 it's given us the reason to hope that you know the dead is better there are better days ahead and if you chill. the team heads back to be amended hoping that the local league which has been in a coded break since february will finally stop playing again. that's it for now we leave you with pictures of a daring rescue operation conservationist in kenya rescuing giraffes from a flooded island in western kenya see you soon.

a woman's mockable unbeaten streak. thank you so much for your company everyone british and european negotiators are once again locked in talks with time fast running out to secure a post break sit trade deal while european commission president orders of underlying and britain's boris johnson have spent the past hour and a half on the phone to discuss the situation and are reportedly now taking a break while the chief negotiator is downbeat about the chances of a breakthrough saying key sticking points remain despite growing fears of economic chaos if britain leaves without a deal london has again said it will not extend the negotiations and we've got team coverage of for you in brussels barber of ezola standing by and charlotte shell
7:02 pm
some pill is covering events from a london for you a very good evening ladies but you start us off please where are we at right now. we don't know this the interesting thing line because the building behind us here the european commission is total radio silence on what the telephone call between boris johnson british prime minister and all slough on the line that you commission chief might possibly contain we don't know is there probably a real dustup between the 2 of them have has one side already thrown in the towel so we'll waiting and nerves are frayed all i can say at this point is to be a little mouse under the table of the e.u. commission president what we have in the at the state of the negotiations is the same that we had over the weekend it says seems negotiators are really running in circles in chasing their own tails this is about sovereignty on the british side
7:03 pm
when you go she had to say we want to make own rules and the european union european union saying we want to tie you to the rules we make because we give you in exchange access to our markets that can obviously not be resolved it's been dragging on and it just carries on maybe for another day or 2 all right so frayed nerves in brussels where barber is let's cross over to london to charlotte charlotte i've lost count of the times that i've asked this next question is this the end game. well i've lost count of the amount of times that i've answered it of course we've seen so many deadlines come and go in these breaks in negotiations now today michel barnier the chief negotiator for the e.u. has said the talks will continue until wednesday but no further who can say whether or not that is the final deadline for these trade and security negotiations and deep both sides have said that they will keep talking up until the final minutes
7:04 pm
indeed coming out of downing street in the u.k. today they say they'll talk as long as it takes so long as we think that a deal is to be done they have admitted though that these talks really are going down to the wire and of course just to give you a sense of the british newspapers today one saying history has its eye on wrecks it say remains to be seen of course whether or not that deal can be done in the coming days but the public here among those that we've spoken to there is a sense of fatigue now as these negotiations drag on and on they've been going on and so in one form or another for years now take a listen to what people on the streets of had to say. i'm not worried about it but we need to get something so detailed. we need to make it do you. don't have to give in to what we should but they will be feels like it's been buried in the public to know about this and what's going on but if buried among the down pandemic virus
7:05 pm
that he succumbed to them. i don't know how many people realize break faith with anything i said to you mean this is what i would want an ideal situation and i don't like the fact that the government does when they don't know what they promise i think is very unfair. people seem crazy i mean 2016 we would see it in 4 years later and what i think if i didn't progress at all to be honest with you personally i think no deal is probably better than a fair deal with just one reason why you have said all along. but who knows what's going to happen but i think even though you know to be honest with you. now optimists will say that this is the last minute drawn there is all part of the political stances that was expected at the end point of this these negotiations both sides wanting to prove just how hard they fought for that respective audiences but as barbara said the news coming out of negotiations has been good lummi one
7:06 pm
source saying that that the chances of a deal at this point 5050 now both sides have said that they do want a deal but not at any cost oh barbara want to give you the last word what happens if they don't shake hands on it if they don't manage to reach an agreement by the deadline set. no deal on the business side of things people call this armageddon because it would mean that 40 years of free trade off the free exchange of goods people money services from the united kingdom to the european union back and forth will be ending overnight that is the main point terrorists will come into into play into play for instance for cars coming from britain to the e.u. 10 percent for u.k. lem 40 percent which would kill the business model off for a number of pittance farmers and so on and so forth transport would be sewn into
7:07 pm
kaos planes probably couldn't fly anymore and would need emergency agreements are from both sides is so yes we will not look be looking forward to that day but in evidence of it will come the 1st of january when everything will change for the better or the worse 1st of january mark your calendars in brussels barbara may's all in london charlotte shell some pill ladies thank you for your continued coverage. and we're going to stay in the u.k. now and hospitals across the country are preparing to start coronavirus vaccinations on tuesday britain will be the 1st country in the world to roll out biotech pfizer coronavirus vaccine frontline health staff people over the age of 80 and care home workers will be prioritized in england 50 hospitals have been initially picked to serve as hubs for the launch of the largest immunization
7:08 pm
program in british history. this is a moment the whole world been waiting for the u.k. is the 1st to roll out the bio and take pfizer 1000 vaccine it's a momentous moment replacing with the highest death toll in europe and there's a window of hope for the future. very very sadly lost. the residents of those care homes who died from co there been a hugely challenging and difficult year and all the time this promise and this hope of a vaccine has been so it's very exciting to the point where feels like that we might be able to make a really positive step or with the help of the facts in. the u.k. health service is calling this the biggest immunization program in its history 1st in line for the vaccine will be people over 80 as well as care home staff and frontline health care workers but this rollout poses major logistical challenges

7:10 pm
tackle misinformation there's some speculation the queen may even reveal she's had the vaccine to be confidence it is extremely important are these people get the vaccine so we need to find a way how to communicate it to them and how to in a way isolate them from these damaging examples of misinformation that they sing on social media and i think it is the role for the health providers it is a role for the community leaders to actually go out and try to explain to them what are they saying and social media is actually not always the truth. the eyes of the world are on the u.k. this week with governments king to see not just how it tackles the logistical challenges but how it sells this vaccine to a public being asked to keep pace with science. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world. german chancellor angela merkel says the current coronavirus restrictions won't get the country through the winter she's pushing for

countries such as south africa it proved to be a challenge. this challenge is affecting south africa's medical logistics sector it is scrambling to prepare for its role in what could become the largest distribution of medical supplies in global history. delivering 2 doses of the vaccine to every single south african. delivering under $3000000.00 doses of vaccines under the 2 conditions that need to be delivered in and maintaining the temperatures is going to be a huge challenge for transport companies like ourselves as well as for the facilities were deceiving because there seems to be able to store it under those conditions i think is going to take a bit of planning and we need to really be a good of the game. and then there's the issue of safety truck drivers in south africa increasingly face dangers like sabotage and hijackings. truckers say they fear that this situation could intensify with criminals set on getting their hands
