up residence in parts of the northeast and catalonia region will not be allowed to leave the local area and won't be confined to their homes as an early lockdowns it's a very different story in england where queues have been forming for what's being dubbed super saturday pubs restaurants and bbs have reopened for the 1st time in 3 months there are fears however that it may be too soon u.k. prime minister johnson is urging everyone to behave responsibly and look at the johns hopkins map shows us how far most of the world is from getting this pandemic under control the number of cases worldwide now stands at just over 11000000 more than half a 1000000 people have died total u.s. infections are heading towards $3000001500000.00 in brazil now get to latin america later if a now worry challenges on the streets of soho in central london live to him after we speak 1st to the barber who is in a european use center. so spain had previously said head coach at 19 pretty much
6:03 pm
under control but now some 200000 people are going into lockdown what more can you tell us. that's right kim this is a very localized lockdown a mini lockdown if you like it concerns a fairly rural area of catalonia in northeastern spain around a town called later this area is home to around 200000 people and on friday health authorities there said that over the last week there had been almost doubling of covered 9000 cases from 167-2320 5. now they've told people that they can't leave the area and people won't be allowed to enter the area as of saturday but as you were saying in the introduction they can leave their homes it's not a full lockdown as spain had before which was very very restrictive but they're telling people they can't gather in numbers of more than 10 so it's a big inconvenience and it will be
6:04 pm
a worry some of these cases of have been linked to picking operations in the area others to at least one care home and we know that there are at least 2 care homes near the regional capital barcelona that have been closed now in the background to all of this yes spain has got on top of its national pandemic if you like but they have just started to receive tourists notably from britain that's been going on since the g 8 since june the 21st but on friday britain announce its own list of so-called safe countries where if people traveled there they wouldn't have to be in court and seen when they returned spain very noticeably on the list along with places like italy and so the tourism sector in spain very keen to put out the message that localized outbreaks will be slept on if you like and brought under control rapidly i think that's where the input is coming from ok d.m.s. the picture in spain what about the rest of europe i mean are these local very
6:05 pm
local lockdowns likely to become the norm. absolutely they are we know that health experts are saying you cannot prevent these localized outbreaks these upsurge is in the numbers of cases it's very controversial though where they're applied because of course it is a big inconvenience now here in britain in the middle of england the city of leicester has been at the center of an argument because local politicians there say central government didn't give them localized enough data and they say that they lost a week in which they could have locked out the situation there now is that up to friday there were 500 new cases of covered 19 and people there unlike the rest of the country as you were saying getting ready to visit restaurants bars and go to the hairdressers people they're being told stay indoors unless it's essential and schools of shut again so really under the restrictions that they didn't want to
6:06 pm
see going forward i think that it really will across the continent depend on rapid action be on the ability to test and trace contacts of people who test positive for covered 19 it's a huge challenge let's not forget that in spain there even though there's been this upsurge in the 24 hours to friday they recorded their biggest death toll from 19 of 17 people or here in britain the rolling average of daily deaths is a 103 hugely larger so i just remind you what challenges lie ahead here in britain . thank you for that. picture across europe speaking of britain let's go to rory talent's who is joining us from the streets of central london rory that scene behind you used to be so normal now it's almost jogging to see so many people gathered together how's it all going. yeah the
6:07 pm
ancient and inalienable rights of frequent people of the united kingdom to go to the pub was how boris johnson put it some months ago when he took that rights away well it's back again at least. in england soon as you can see behind me there are plenty of people who are taking that right up again with some enthusiasm it's a big experiment though all of this is not just pops of course it's if you're lucky enough to have you can go back to the head dresses and get it cut so you can go and watch a film in the cinema you can go to hotels etc all of these things it's a big step it's being called super saturday and it's perhaps the biggest incremental jump in returning england at least to normal life that has been taken since the lockdown began the experiments is what's this going to be in for the 19 and for businesses is it going to be worth it can they host all of these people safely and
6:08 pm
off. and if not enough people come is economically viable for them to be open anyway the government knows that this is a big risk and it knows that there is a possibility that allowing people to mingle again in parks and cause etc will possibly lead to fresh flare ups of covert 19 they're hoping though that whatever flare ups do you happen if that is the case that they can tackle them with the kind of rule localised lockdowns that nadine was just talking up about their say in leicester and in spain as well rather than going back to the full national lockdown that we've seen for the last few months. thank you so much for that update there rory talons of live from a central london. united states arranged by father worst hit nation but donald trump made little mention of it during a speech at the foot of

6:21 pm
to 2015 nuclear deal now this comes after spoke at the united nations condemning the european countries france germany and the u.k. for what he called complacency and not standing up to the united states bullying now this isn't the 1st time that iran has complained to the e.u. back in 2018 when the united states pulled out of that 2015 nuclear deal iran gave the european countries those 3 european countries one year to come up with a way around u.s. sanctions so the deal could be maintained that the europeans were able to do that to iran such a satisfactory standard iran started back in its commitments that deal now what has angered and frustrated your reins is other than what they see as noncompliance of the dream and these 3 european countries put forward a motion to the international atomic energy agency asking for access asking for us
6:22 pm
access for a number of sites inside iran and iran considers those sites not part of the 2015 nuclear deal or those on military sites but you have questions about those sites and activity that took place before the 2015 nuclear deal now iran maintains that its nuclear program is for peaceful means and that i already has access to all nuclear sites in iran and 247 or 9 monitoring but iran has warned that any interference between the iran by foreign countries could have a negative impact on that relationship. the 2015 iran nuclear deal has survived for more than 4 years just signed by iran and 6 nations led by the us president barack obama in a deal to lift sanctions in exchange for monitoring of iran's nuclear activities then a year later president all tromped withdrew from the agreement called. it a bad deal for america and re-impose sanctions the others have tried to keep the
6:23 pm
pact alive that following another wave of tough u.s. sanctions in may last year iran began rolling back its compliance 1st to increase its stockpile of enrich uranium and in january after the u.s. killed its top commander it scrapped all limits on the nuclear program. is a policy consultant on iranian affairs he joins us on skype from of germany thanks for your time sir what should we be taking away from the fact that iran has triggered this dispute mechanism is very much looks like. a situation in which iran is trying to read all the legal process towards a potential end of the nuclear agreement with the with this dispute resolution mechanism is the complaining party. is directly in the position to if the responses from the other signatories are not satisfactory to you on iran is in the position to say ok then we will leave this agreement so it's basically as
6:24 pm
our colleague from germany that's w p well that was only a lot has already said it's a way to legalize you iran's exit from the movement aka terror on has already stopped at herring to keep parts of the deal but does it have a point in accusing european powers of not living up to the terms. yes of course the point is that ever since the u.s. has withdrawn from the agreement iran is expecting the remaining parties the european countries and china and russia to compensate for the economic loss that is basically generated through the rest of the drawn into real because it's not sanctions the other parties and particularly the europeans haven't been able to do so which is why you ran after a year of patients then started to scale back its compliance with the agreement that is now in a final escalates removed when you could say has iran built up any resilience to
6:25 pm
the u.s. sanctions since they've been in place. indeed iran has done so i mean economists have to explain to you in detail how they have done that but in fact it was clear that after one or 2 years of negative economic growth iran will be able to stabilize its economy and gradually go back to us increasingly stabilise economy iran says it is on track in this regard but that doesn't mean that a lot of social or economic hardship is still on the shoulders of 80 plus 1000000 iranians so how do you think this is all going to play out in the in the medium to longer term i mean is iran going to leave the deal will there be a replacement deal how do you think the u.s. is going to approach all of this. well with the current state of affairs a very much looks as if we're going to see the end of the nuclear agreement by the end of this year a lot will depend on the run up to the presidential elections in the united states
6:26 pm
in the member and if that happened if if the deal fell apart we may even see you ron leaving the not clear and nuclear nonproliferation treaty n.p.t. and raising the stakes are nuclear nonproliferation globally again might be a better bargain in position for iran to then enter a new talks directly with the americans at some point next year so the but that the time until then his extreme the dangerous and we have to to really brace ourselves for more attention to flare over the summer and the summer do you expect european leaders to step up and respond to terror on triggering this dispute mechanism because of course european they've as the target that spain mechanism themselves previously and then rolled back that so how do you think europe is likely to respond. it's very difficult to imagine europe doing some magic that it has that it
6:27 pm
hasn't been able to do up until today the prospect of iran being serious about leaving being serious about leaving the n.p.t. and the consequences that could have this might be another reason for europe to say ok now we're really close to to the abyss and we have to do something but it's difficult because iran will expect nothing short of very very concrete economic incentives economic incentives for iraq to say ok it's still beneficial for us to abide by the agreement and that would really mean that over the summer europe has to offer something we need tangible and i'm at least that it's got a tickle that you're open to be able and willing to do that thanks so much for your analysis there by a policy consultant on iranian affects pleasure. iran is threatening retaliation after a fire at one of its nuclear sites officials suspect it may have been the result of a cyber attack and say they'll respond if it's confirmed they now towns syces

remains fine and dry and how much is not a 21 important is about. from the prison this is going to be inspirational. from founding the independent state. to fiercely defending his people sometimes make plans in the conclusion of a 2 part documentary series how does your room expose the lies to our. independent bosnia herzegovina. from prisoner to president or not just say you don't. examining the impact of today's headlines i need to go to work because i need to make money risking our lives by going in setting the agenda for tomorrow's discussions racially charged social unrest want to steal my seed into international filmmakers who moon class
6:31 pm
journalists bring programs to inform and inspire you to terrorist but you hear the story of your city walk the path for now just 0. 00. 0. you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour spain is locked down an area that's home to more than 200000 people following a surge of corona virus infections residents in the sacred have reached a new will only be allowed to leave the area for. restaurants and hairdressers a reopening across england for the 1st time in 3 months u.k. prime minister abbas johnson is urging people to act responsibly as coronavirus
6:32 pm
restrictions are released. and coronavirus cases a surging in more than 40 us states that the issue was not addressed by president donald trump during a rally to mark independence day and found fresh. let the americans corona virus infection numbers now exceed that of europe the region has more than 2 and a half 1000000 confirmed cases it's being driven mainly by brazil which has reported about one and a half 1000000 infections cases in chile peru and mexico also rose sharply on friday. he joins me now live from bogota sounder so the regions corona virus infection numbers now supposing that of europe i mean that is not sort of touching the region wants. definitely not came in as you were saying of course the bulk of cases are in brazil has been the case throughout this crisis but we've seen a shop churning cases in
6:33 pm
a number of other countries from rule to colombia where we are peru and chile are now approaching 300000 cases each this is very warm been our 810000 dates in. 6000 in 2 so the situation is quite dramatic across the region are a lot of it has to do with the reopening of the economies in this countries people here are i've been flirting with the idea of going back to a strict quarantine about that seems quite difficult to do especially in countries with such a large portion of the population working formally then they need to be out on the streets and so the government what the governments are saying now is it's very important to continue focusing on the use of face masks when people are about
6:34 pm
on the streets on social distancing brasil in this case as well is the case on itself because on friday the president to hear bold so narrow essentially watered down a new law that was requiring the use of face masks that pretty much in all ok jand outside of people's home the president there essentially said it's ok to require it on the streets or when people are on public transportation but it's not necessary when people at church or at the office at their work and so on and so people worry that this could further affect the situation in brazil when you're looking at a country that has a. more than 60000 confirmed deaths and that the numbers the real numbers are probably much higher here in colombia where we are last week the mayor was also
6:35 pm
calling for a return to a strict lockdown given the uptick in cases the president said for now that's not necessary and here in bogota which has been at the center of the spread of the infections in the country more than $300.00 new ventilators have arrived to set up a new intensive care unit. that way to use hope busy that even if the numbers continue to rise in the number of hospitalizations they'll be able to contain it and that the health service will be able to sustain this the rhythm. is a shoes thank you for that i did there. live from. israeli authorities are planning to turn in a dust real neighborhood in occupied east jerusalem into a technology help but opponents say the project is another attempt to illegally solidify israeli control of occupied palestinian land for example.
6:36 pm
for decades if you wanted to fix the time. discount groceries an occupied east jerusalem what he has been the police to come but a new israeli project would see this neighborhood a short walk from the old city remade as a hub for tourism and high tech. i don't know any rents the land on which he operates his garage he and dozens of others have recently been issued eviction notices accusing them of breaking zoning laws instructing them to move out before the end of the year in the hold i want to sit we have been here for the last 60 years the municipality sent us evacuation orders without negotiating without giving us alternatives or compensation the sulak on what the neighborhood. the west jerusalem municipal government along with israel's interior ministry want to rename what he jos silicon wadi with office space for high tech businesses as well as hotels all part of a more than 600000000 dollar development master plan in the occupied east but
6:37 pm
a project on this scale in occupied east jerusalem isn't just an issue of business and investments and jobs it's also an issue of politics and control throughout 53 years of occupation palestinians have been regularly denied building permits had homes demolished while israeli projects have sought to solidify israel's claim to unified city the municipality says the intention with silicon wadi is to improve employment and living standards we would love it if we had investment from the arab community themselves we don't want to take this and own it we want to do it in order for easter some to continue developing the way that it deserves to develop. the municipality says garrels you news will be compensated but a lawyer acting on their behalf says the eviction notices suggest no such thing and that the entire project fails to meet the needs of residents. if you ask people here they'll tell you they want housing before i take the municipalities unfortunately fantasizing outside the palestinian vision it violates the 4th geneva
6:38 pm
convention to me and see this decision as internationally illegal has no long term plan and on the plans to manage the daily lives of the people as someone who owns land and businesses here. has been in talks about partnering in the project but he'd rather have permits to build apartments it's too big for us what they're asking and we don't want to be invested people and. it's very important thing was we want to make balance that elusive balance is at the heart of the issue in occupied east jerusalem the dying need for investment in infrastructure set against the cost of accepting increasing israeli control or a force of al-jazeera occupied east jerusalem. akiva eldar is a political analyst and author of lords of the land the war of israel settlements in the occupied territories he's in tel aviv thank you so much for your time what have you made it what do you make of this latest plan to turn the joe's into
6:39 pm
a tech help is it is it just solidifying israeli control or is there an argument here for progress and investment. i think the answer is double t. it's about trust and timing 1st of all trust. my career just mention he said the municipality of west jerusalem. the israeli authorities the israeli government and that there is a consensus among. 99 percent of the israeli jews jerusalem is united there's no such a thing as east jerusalem and west jerusalem and in the last year or so we even saw president trump making some statements about the unifications of jerusalem in trump's plan that we may discuss in the future jerusalem should be united so look for this rally is what he joins this area that
6:40 pm
is supposed to be the palestinian israeli silicon valley for the palestinians it's part of the occupied territories for these various it's. so there is. no such thing as mutual trust about anything that has to do with this changing the status quo or even when we say it's in favor of the palestinians is going to produce new jobs and so on the palestinians don't really believe that it's about their wealth. the other thing is timing is you know came we are now. we started the countdown. about the annexation of the annexation of the west bank this really settlements part of it and we're just waiting in gauge to hear what the white house has to say about it so
6:41 pm
when we're talking about. next in part of and they actually defrocked or because if you were is one already and the next is jerusalem so greece is taking another part of jerusalem under the control of the israeli minister parity and it's another unilateral step because we didn't ask the palestinians if this is what they want no israel said they did not. in terms of those and exciting plans at least for now they're on hold is that because you think netanyahu is just waiting for the green light from washington or other also domestic considerations that play to. there are some domestic considerations but as we. said in a meeting with his likud colleagues in the cabinet he said that blue and white the spartans were his coalition added by banning guns is not holding the
6:42 pm
key to the annexation doesn't have a grito over the exception he's waiting to hear what president from has to say about it and it looks like president has other things on his mind. he believes that really you know his problem is with the democrats and axing the white house. so. this is kind of the paradox of money and we're talking about israeli sovereignty expanding its sovereignty on the other hand we give president the president of the united states well it's a superpower but still it's a foreign country the last word about the israeli borders. i believe we will have to wait until the american elections but the damage has been done because the palestinians really didn't if we didn't happen now it will happen
6:43 pm
