1:02 pm
vowed revenge for sunday's incident and the tans which tear around describes as an act of terrorism and israel has not directly claimed responsibility but local media say its intelligence services were behind it all about money reports. nuclear terrorism is how in the rainy an official described a power blackout and its natanz nuclear enrichment facility sunday is cutting the electrical supply grid cause no casualties or contamination of. what happened in the tons as israel's official said several times and what we're hearing from different sources it confirms that israel was behind this incident israeli media claimed it was caused by a cyber attack launched by israeli security services although it quoted and i judged by its sources some media outlets have a close relationship with intelligence agencies iran is their own region the international atomic energy agency to take action saying it reserves the right to
1:03 pm
punish the perpetrators the development comes at an important time as iran prepares to step back to the negotiating table in vienna. talks about iran's nuclear agreement started there last week with indirect talks with the united states. president joe biden says he's willing to rescue a deal abandoned 3 years ago by his predecessor donald trump that is if iran comes into compliance with the deal in my view without a doubt this is definitely not a coincidence and one thing you need to remember well it is. israel is the usual suspect in these events over the last few years one must be mindful that there are many opponents in many different corners to the resumption of their joint comprehensive plan of action not the least of which is from within iran itself tapper and has been steadily moving away from the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal
1:04 pm
since the u.s. pulled out the blackout happened a day after iran unveiled at fancy rein him centrifuges at the facility but iran had previously made clear the negotiations in vienna are on the right track. well we have harry forth that he's in westerly slam and we'll get israel's reaction from him in just a moment 1st let's speak to acid bank he's in the iranian capital now as an iran is clearly pointing the finger at israel what more are we hearing from the leadership by that. well the foreign ministry spokesman spoke this morning he said he called it nuclear terrorism he said that he was glad that there wasn't any environmental damage but this could have been a disaster and he said it was carried out by those that are against iran's nuclear program and against iran's negotiations to have those sanctions lifted clearly pointing the finger at israel now we've also been hearing from iran's head of iran's atomic organization who said that there is now emergency electricity at the
1:05 pm
facility and over the next few days they will be checking those centrifuges was shut failed but you also said that iran would compensate for any damage or increasing capacity by 50 percent this is. the 3rd attack that's taken place in the space of a year we had the assassination of iran's nuclear scientist in november just outside of the iran and we had an explosion an act of sabotage as iran called it at the same natanz the facility in the summer of last year that there are questions being asked of iran security services but iran has said that it will respond at a time of its choosing and used to hearing this but all this does take place as iran gets ready to go back to negotiate with the europeans in vienna later this week obviously a very critical time indeed i said there in terror and for us thanks so much i said well let's now get the view from israel by force that is an investor a sense is
1:06 pm
a really quite the accusations there from tehran any response from tel aviv. no response from the israeli government wouldn't really expect one in this sort of circumstance at least not a public confirmation or denial but they're not doing very much to try to lift that accusation indeed given the sort of reporting we're seeing in israeli media are monday it seems there is a pretty extensive background briefing going on from senior intelligence sources essentially giving the story to the local media that yes it was there was an israeli involvement that is what the local media are reporting citing intelligence sources the new york times is among those with extensive reports it says that there was a blast which took out the entirety of the separate isolated power supply defended power supply for the natanz centrifuge facility that would put the program back by around 9 months at least the common public broadcaster said that centrifuges were
1:07 pm
also damaged in the attack as well so no official comment but that is the kind of briefing that appears to be going on at a time when the u.s. section of defense lloyd austin is in the country he's been having a cup of engagements with the israeli minister of defense spending accounts they were asked about the issue by journalists no comment coming back what might be more interesting is what happens in the next hour or so his meeting with the prime minister benjamin netanyahu will be interesting to see what either man has to say on this natanz issue also on the issue of the iran nuclear deal because while benny gantz was talking about working with the americans to try to get the best kind of deal possible netanyahu has been very much firmer in his opposition to the idea of a talk harry forth that there with all the latest for us. thank you so much very well that's now bring in fall and evaluate he's a professor of wild studies at the university of tehran and he joins us now from
1:08 pm
the iranian capital professor as we've been hearing that plenty of speculation about just how this attack was carried out i'm curious what's your sense of what's happened here. i think it is good as you report that if you have that it's so i think it is if the sources point out to the fact that what's behind this attack we have had israelis. pointing out this idea that you know the. nuclear program in order to stop iran's nuclear program the united states or utopians about this don't need to give any sanctions or at least you know yes. they can pity the scientists it can damage your hands and you could send it to us so that started you meant that israel does not have gauging this type of practice as well when it comes to the actual way that this attack was
1:09 pm
carried out i see some experts including iranian ones have suggested this was not a cyber attack perhaps but what it actually required physical infiltration to put off an explosion of this nature i mean given the levels of security in attacks that would presumably be very embarrassing for terror on. mainly i think you know on the security forces of having a challenge. israelis. have engaged in these type of activities in the past experience and you know trying to respond in terms of making sure that they prevent this type of i think so it's just that is a challenge for you and then security forces but that doesn't excuse the good behavior of israelis this is against international law iran is an independent country this facility has been monitored by international atomic energy agency for many years and just attacking other countries facilities is not going to end up.
1:10 pm
breaking international law and gauging this type of professor given those tensions do you have a sense of how iran is possible in u.s. involvement here i noticed the terror on times the case tel aviv but hasn't really pointed the finger to what washington. you know you know that israeli intelligence services and america is cooperate i'm not saying that this attack happened you had a defense secretary and. and so. there is not much you can do to separate these 2 countries that they want if each of them i think that rouhani administration wants to reach an agreement by then and so they may forget or forgive him for now the fact that israel is a close u.s. ally and just give it the united states but the idea that there's a noose did this on their own people don't believe that well given all the timing
1:11 pm
of some estimates putting the repair walk and all the damage that we've seen it up to 9 months i mean where does that leave the nuclear talks i see the europeans are now sounding a little less optimistic than they have been and recently. you know iran. is interested talks and they want to continue with the nuclear talks you know we have record action coming up in georgia they want to reach some sort of the agreement for. this type of attacks. make things complicated but i think. with the talks but this is going to make things come complicated in the sense that one day that iran will respond is to . its nuclear program so you saw it as. foreign minister spokesman.
1:12 pm
going to replace that damaged son to futures a bit more at the ransom so the idea is that if you are attacking iran you're going to do more and that's that's a bit of the spawn there and that's that doing more is going to make things from. saudi that professor of studies and university of tehran great to get your thoughts here on out there thanks for being with us professor thank you. plenty more ahead here this news hour including a vaccine really found in gaza but it's not has health officials can sound. and teenagers on the front line of conflict and on an island but the older generation is being blamed for reigniting the troubles and not a controversial v.o.r. decision in the english premier league results and fast stop clamping racially and bunions that's coming up shortly with sports. now india has soared past brazil to become the 2nd most affected country in terms
1:13 pm
of total covered 1000 cases now on monday it recorded a staggering 169000 new infections health officials are hoping that a 4 day super vaccine drive could turn around the surge in numbers more than 2700000 doses were administered across the country on the 1st day. but a religious festival is causing concern with thousands gathering at river pilgrimage sites officials say the size of those crowds makes and forcing social distancing rules nearly impossible offer on this let's speak to elizabeth promise she joins us now from new delhi let's just looking at those rather extraordinary pictures that there are some pretty crowded gatherings even as we see things even deteriorate further. well you've heard from police the coalmine of the city is taking place in the town of $101.00 it's in the foothills of the himalayas foothills in the state of calm and police have said that on 2 midday local time on monday that 2000000 pilgrims
1:14 pm
bathed in the ganges river in the area where the coup mail is taking place in that's more than 2000000 people on one day now the call made began 3 months ago and when it began event organizers and police said that they were going to deploy thousands of offices to ensure that covert 19 protocols would be followed but police have said that there are too many people to any such guidelines and the man has been taking place it's a large religious gathering but over the past few moments we've also had many political gatherings and as we speak for an instant in the more he is addressing very large crowds of the station west bengal he's holding 3 election rallies there on monday as. the other political parties in west bengal the elections taking place in 5 states and all of the political parties which are participating have been
1:15 pm
holding such large gatherings just fide prominence in that in the movie and health officials saying that the main reason for the 2nd wave in india is because of large gatherings which took place when the numbers fell earlier this year and because of people not following code that appropriate behavior. liz talk us through what's happening across the rest of the country too i know there were restrictions put in place but. for instance very much still struggling. there are increasing a number of restrictions in many parts of the country maharashtra remains the worst affected there is a weekend locked on a strict we can lock down in place there are night curfews in many parts of the country now model is now requisitioning 4 and 5 star hotels to create care centers to increase the number of beds. is dealing with a shortage of beds dealing with a shortage of oxygen supply with malfunctioning ventilation is here in the capital
1:16 pm
delhi we have a number of new restrictions including a ban on political social the religious gatherings restaurants bars and cinemas have to operate with 50 percent capacity and as more and more restrictions are being imposed we've been seeing over the past few days migrant workers india has a very large number of people who work in different states to where they're from and these migrant workers and it's beginning to leave the cities of mumbai the capital of maharashtra and also delhi because they're afraid that they have lost their jobs already and they're afraid they're going to go into and that public transport closed as it did last year and as cases arising we'll also have in reports of vaccine shortages many states are complaining that they're running out of vaccines and while that happens states leaders and other health officials are asking the indian government to remove the age limit for vaccinations so that more
1:17 pm
people can be vaccinated but any adult who wants to be inoculated can because at the moment the age limit is $45.00 and the government is running behind its own vaccination. and is about piron in there on the ground for us with the latest from new delhi thanks so much friends. life is slowly returning to normal in england with non-essential services reopening now across the country pubs restaurants headdresses gyms shops and a number of other venues have now reopened this is the 2nd stage of the government's road map out of the nationwide coronavirus and up down there now the easing of restrictions comes as the u.k. recorded just 7 deaths on sunday that's the lowest total since september chalons joins us now from brighton rory i know the prime minister said that he'd be toasting this day with a pint of well i know his plans change with prince philip's death all the crowds out there to celebrate. well they're certainly out here to show his you
1:18 pm
can see behind me i'm standing in brighton city center in front of prime art which is a chain of fashion clothing stores around the country very popular as you might be able to tell with teenagers and their parents and i'm just going to also the camera mounted old and for you here so you can see this queue that goes all the way out the shop boy up the streets across the street then all the way down the opposite side of the street back onto the main streets. down into the distance there so there's obviously a lot of pocket money that's been saved up over the last few months that people are itching to spend and clearly that's good news for the retail sector but all sex is not equal we have good news for say bad hairdressers which it's all about absolutely full booking sheets at the moment but when it gets gets to you know the hospitality industry yes there will be celebrations this evening i've got an
1:19 pm
invitation to go and see some friends in a pub garden right specked i'm not the only one in the country doing that later on today but it's only 2 out of every 5 hospitality venues has some sort of outdoor space so it's an uneven playing field and there are going to be plenty of. pubs cafes read. strong that collins reopened as they would like to do but you know this is the as you said this kind of step back towards normality for the country boris johnson the prime minister urging people if they are out there celebrating or going shopping to behave responsibly lori it's been a real mixed bag in the u.k. about very poor and initial response to this sort of the pandemic and then this really impressive vaccination campaign now as things are starting to open up again how people view ing how the government actually dealt with a lot of this. what i think you hit the nail on the head there that kind of explains the number of if you going to use some sort of you know a footballing analogy it's been
1:20 pm
a game it's. absolutely terrible with the government making seemingly an endless series of. fatal own goals own goals that lead to the deaths of many many thousands of people when you look at the death toll in care homes and the lack of p.p.a. for front line health workers these are things that. really really dented the government's prestige the confidence that people had in how it was angling the pandemic bots what the government did early on was very very heavily on the vaccine program and was one of the 1st countries in the world to really roll out we now have over 40000000 people in the country who have had their 1st job 8000000 people who have been fully vaccinated with their 2nd job so that has meant that the governments in the 2nd half of that footballing analogy has really picked up you
1:21 pm
know its prestige again and i think people now getting much more positive and are now giving it more of the benefit of the doubt and boris johnson's poll ratings correspondingly are on the up and going challenge with all the latest for us from the u.k. on the streets of britain thanks so much for e. well now the gaza strip has been described as an open air prison for more than 2000000 people and so far 1000 has killed nearly 700 people there but now the 2nd coronavirus wave has arrived in the rollout of vaccines as lagging as natasha going to reports from gaza. it's the 1st dose of the covert $1000.00 vaccine and the 1st wave of relief for gazans including hamdi. i can move with a degree of competence i wish everyone can get it but the reality is few gazans have or are likely to be vaccinated 31000 people have received at least one dose
1:22 pm
fewer than 3 percent of the adult population health officials are not optimistic the gaza strip can ever obtain enough vaccines to achieve so-called herd immunity. for an oppressed people connected to israel all over the world where they are getting the vaccine or the lost causes vaccination effort began in late february now a 2nd surge of coded 1000 has arrived with a deadlier strain the world bank says the international community needs to provide significant financial assistance to vaccinate gazans it's urging israel to donate vaccines the palestinians say as an occupying force israel is responsible for assisting them israel says the palestinians are in charge of their health system to risk you more than $2000000.00 palestinians in the gaza strip. all war of the international community and israel must say oh you know all the vaccines
1:23 pm
needed. the hamas led government has implemented restrictions on people driving on the weekend schools have moved online and indoor dining is banned. however dr. the health director of the un relief and works agency for palestine refugees in gaza says the only way to help cope with 19 is through mass vaccination it is nonsense or to talk about. one of the street between houses it is not more than half meter and the houses are full of a lot of beards ons more more than 20. homes and this would infrastructure with poverty. $66000.00 donated vaccine doses are expected to arrive this month while the gazans wait the intensive care units in a health care system ill equipped to handle

1:33 pm
a battleship secondly a people talk about past us to government basically that i'm sitting today but the country they are not equally bad they're extremely bad because of my last claim that one had jump or time's up but there are states like. that jump by what printing 5 times in one month we had a jump if you don't see it in the last one month so there are these dates which are weirdly whatever work is is but a stock history lies in next to it or dent is very village in the area was country diptych will be different in different states so dr singh as you want to ask a little bit more about life in mumbai country's largest city i mean we know that it's been through so much of late can you describe what life is like there at the mine are there people out on the streets going shopping going to market so is there a real sense of fair. we had 60 year worse.
