With COVID-19 still infecting people, what are the risks of pregnancy and childbirth?

How Hagia Sophia became Turkey’s latest political battleground | DW News
How Hagia Sophia became Turkey’s latest political battleground | DW News
Day ago
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to turn Istanbul's world-famous tourist site into a mosque. He is trying to score points with Turkish voters, but his plans have encountered considerable resistance. Hagia Sophia is the symbol of Istanbul and Turkey's most popular tourist attraction. Every year, millions of visitors take in its gigantic brick dome and elaborate frescoes, which have earned the building UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site status. But Hagia Sophia is more than just an architectural masterpiece: It has always been a political symbol, as well. The monumental structure was built by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian in the sixth century A.D. When the Ottomans conquered Constantinople in 1453, Sultan Mehmed II immediately converted the cathedral into a mosque. The founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, utilized the church for another act with symbolic significance: In 1935 he turned Hagia Sophia into a museum, which conveyed the message that modern Turkey was a secular country. Now, the current Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is also planning on making symbolic capital out of the building, which is situated in Istanbul's central Fatih district. For many of Erdogan's voters, who tend to have nationalist-Islamist sympathies, Hagia Sophia symbolizes the conquest of Christian Constantinople by the Ottomans, and the superiority of the Islamic world. President Erdogan appears unfazed by objections, recently telling the Greek Orthodox community in Turkey: "You say to us: 'Please don't turn Hagia Sophia into a mosque.' Do you mean Turkey should bow to your will? We await the decision of the Council of State. After that, the necessary steps will be taken." Erdogan's initiative is seen as an attempt to swing the Turkish electorate back behind the AKP. The majority of polls indicate that the party has lost significant support of late. As a result, Erdogan has in recent months been pushing to galvanize nationalist sentiment among the populace.

Rising tensions between China and the UK over new Hong Kong laws | DW News
Rising tensions between China and the UK over new Hong Kong laws | DW News
Day ago
China warned the UK on Thursday it could retaliate with "corresponding measures" following the UK's decision to extend a broader path to British citizenship for residents of Hong Kong. The Chinese embassy in London issued a statement stressing that "all Chinese compatriots living in Hong Kong are Chinese nationals." The Hong Kong police made hundreds of arrests Wednesday under a controversial new so-called security law in the Chinese-administrated area. Some were arrested for waving flags or "conducting themselves with intent such as secession or subversion." Hong Kong has seen widespread pro-independence and pro-democracy protests over the last year. Hong Kong was under British jurisdiction until 1997 when it was handed over to China. A key part of the handover deal was that Beijing would preserve the city's judicial and legislative autonomy, a promise that critics say has been violated. Wednesday's clashes with police took place on the anniversary of the handover. While most protests were apparently peaceful, one man was arrested on Thursday morning after allegedly stabbing a police officer. Authorities say the 24-year-old had boarded a flight to London but was detained and taken off the plane. Police posted a video on social media on Wednesday of a police officer bleeding from his arm. The UK has sought closer relations with China since they left the European Union in January 2020. UK media reported that British officials summoned the Chinese ambassador to meet later in the day following the publication of the statement, after China said the UK should "refrain from interfering in Hong Kong affairs in any way."

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi took drastic measures as the coronavirus pandemic was spreading, ordering a lockdown with just four hours’ notice. Critics say India’s COVID19 lockdown left millions stranded and didn’t keep the deadly virus from spreading India has had 600,000 COVID19 cases to date and 20,000 deaths. The number of new cases is continuing to rapidly rise. In March, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in response to the global pandemic ordered a massive lockdown of the country, giving its 1.3 billion people just four hours’ notice. The measures hit many of the country’s poor migrant workers hard, leaving many stranded without shelter, food or transportation. National spokesman of Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Sudhanshu Trivedi said no one was prepared for an unprecedented pandemic. Trivedi discussed the government’s response with DW’s Tim Sebastian for Conflict Zone.

The coronavirus knows no borders as it spreads across the planet. But it is not an equal opportunity killer. Far from being the "great leveller" as it's occasionally been described coronavirus has further exposed inequalities within societies. Often it is those at the bottom of the economic ladder who are suffering the most. Poverty makes people ill, and that’s also the case with Covid-19. Poor working conditions, low wages, little living space - all this increases the risk of infection.

Parts of Germany’s KSK elite forces to be disbanded due to extremist views | DW News
2 days ago
German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has ordered the partial dissolution of Germanys' elite KSK commandos, following reports of right-wing extremism in their ranks. The KSK has been part of the German Army since 1996. The group focuses on anti-terrorism operations and hostage rescues from hostile areas. Its members have served in Afghanistan and the Balkans, but its operations are kept secret. Reports say the unit may face a major reorganisation, and up to 70 of its 14 hundred personnel could be cut. Military investigators announced this year that they suspected 20 KSK personnel of holding extreme right attitudes. Media reports quote the defence minister as saying the unit has a "toxic leadership culture" and "cannot continue to exist in its present form". KSK Chief Commander Markus Kreitmayr is expected to remain in place, but the group will not participate in exercises or international missions until the restructuring is complete. The restructuring of the KSK comes as several federal investigations have uncovered links to right-wing extremism, which has worried Berlin. A report by Germany's Military Counterintelligence Service (MAD) in January revealed that 500 soldiers in the German military were being investigated for right-wing extremism. The German Bundeswehr has been grappling with a rise in far-right links among soldiers throughout its history.

Germany takes over the rotating presidency of the EU, for the last time under Chancellor Angela Merkel. The bloc is facing immense challenges: A global pandemic and resultant recession. The EU will have to contend with a debilitating pandemic that's also severely harming the world's economic health, all while trying to rekindle excitement for the shared European project. If all goes to schedule, - which is never guaranteed - Brexit, the exit of the EU's third-largest member and the economy will be finalized on Germany's watch. Merkel is often seen in Germany as being in her political element when in a crisis. If that's the case, 2020 did not disappoint for her last stint helping to steer the European ship.

In the US, the government's top infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci has sounded the alarm about the rapid spread of the coronavirus. Dr Fauci says the number of daily cases could more than double if the country fails to contain a surge in infections across several states. The EU has opened its external borders to leisure and business travel today, but not to all countries. Coronavirus hotspots including the US and Russia were excluded from the so-called 'safe-list' of countries whose residents can enter the bloc. Australia, Japan and South Korea did make the cut, however. Chinese travellers can also enter, but only after China opens its own borders. It's a difficult summer for tourism-dependent businesses in Europe, with more EU residents staying close to home. Authorities in northwestern Germany are preparing to ease the strict lockdown imposed in some districts after a COVID-19 outbreak flared at a meat processing factory there. People have been ordered to stay in their homes, and are banned from traveling anywhere. For many of those who've seen quarantine return, patience is wearing thin, but testing who is healthy and who is not is a major challenge. Some of the other developments in the coronavirus pandemic. The German state of Bavaria is to bring in universal testing for COVID-19. It's prompted a debate about whether the rest of Germany should follow suit or stick to targeted testing to prevent a possible second wave. Coronavirus deaths will soon top 60,000 in Brazil, the worst-hit country after the US. The army has delivered protective supplies and medicines by helicopter to indigenous communities in the Amazon.They also began testing isolated indigenous communities for the coronavirus. On this visit, no one tested positive, but the pandemic is threatening to decimate hundreds of Amazon tribes. They have little immunity to external diseases and have a communal lifestyle that rules out social distancing. Thailand has begun a fifth phase of relaxations of restrictions. Schools and high-risk entertainment venues such as bars and massage parlours have been allowed to re-open. China has reported just three new cases of coronavirus compared to 19 the day before. All the new cases were in Beijing.

Only in one area have things taken an environmental step backwards in Germany. While public transport remains as empty in many places as it was at the beginning of the crisis, the roads have filled up with provate cars.

Police all over Africa often use violent and even lethal force on unarmed civilians. There's a general distrust of police across the African continent. The ongoing conversation about the way police in the United States treat black people has opened a similar conversation in Africa. For many Africans, the fear of dying at the hands of a police officer reasonates. There are no concrete numbers to make solid comparisons on but there are visible patterns: - In Nigeria, human rights groups have documented numerous cases of forced disappearances and torture. - In South Africa, the police watchdog registered 42-thousand complaints between 2012 and 2019 - including accusations of rape, torture and murder. - In Kenya police have already killed around 100 people this year.

What is ANTIFA? History, ideology and tactics explained | UNPACKED
7 days ago
Is Antifa a ‘terrorist organization,’ as US President Donald Trump claims, or a mere resistance movement trying to fight fascism? In this episode of Unpacked, we walk you through Antifa's story from Nazi Germany to present day America. Antifa, which is short for anti-fascist, is not a unified organisation, but a loose term used to describe far-left activists who oppose anyone they see as holding facist views. Antifa wants to stop the far right, white supremacists, homophobes, xenophobes and racists, from having any presence in society, from trying to embed themselves in communities and spreading their ideas as common sense and grow their political power. In addition to that, Antifa activists tend to be opposed to the values of capitalism. Groups that identify with the Antifa label are most commonly found in Europe and North America. But anonymity along with a lack of structure, and overlap in ideas with other leftist groups makes it hard to know exactly how many people count themselves as Antifa members. Antifascism is more of a counter movement, Because antifascism is a social movement, but it's specifically oriented towards opposing another movement . Antifa groups also share a common set of tactics to achieve their goals. They conduct research, organize information campaigns and demonstrations to counter far-right street presence.

French President Emmanuel Macron is due to host a video conference with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about the security situation in Libya will be at the top of the agenda. The north African nation is less than two thousand kilometres away from continental Europe. It's become a bloody battleground for a number of players vying for power in the oil-rich country. One of them is Fayez al-Sarraj, who leads the UN-installed government in Tripoli. On the other side is military strongman Khalifa Haftar - a rebel general who now controls two thirds of the country - including Libya's oil fields. So far, his attempts to take control of the capital have failed.

Coronavirus cases have surged in India since restrictions were lifted in early June. The country recorded its highest daily spike of new cases on Wednesday for a second consecutive day. Nearly 16,000 further infections have been recorded bringing the national total to more than 455,000. Concerns are growing in Delhi, which has surpassed Mumbai's COVID-19 tally with 70,000 confirmed cases, making the capital the worst-hit city. Delhi's authorities are not only faced with the unprecedented challenge of stopping the spread of the coronavirus, a shortage of beds is also major ongoing issue, with health facilities buckling under the strain. The Indian capital's luxury hotels and stadiums could be turned into field hospitals. Even spiritual centers in Delhi are designated for conversion to COVID-19 care facilities, while officials are rushing to extend testing to millions of residents.

How well did the global coronavirus lockdown work? | COVID-19 Special

Like an apocalypse. A phenomenon around the globe, impacting pretty much everyone, everywhere, at the same time. The Great Coronavirus Lockdown robbed people of their freedoms and their daily lives. Shops, restaurants, playgrounds, schools. All closed. Personal contact was prohibited. Millions of people were locked in their own homes for weeks on end. Some say it came at a huge economic cost, but saved millions of lives. Others suggest the burden was so great, it actually cost lives. "There is no glory in prevention," said Germany's chief virologist, Christian Drosten, on the steps taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Medical experts weren't popular everywhere, even though they may have saved millions of lives. That's the conclusion of a new study in the journal Nature. DW runs the numbers and asks an expert how effective quarantine was.

The United States is seeing a new surge of coronavirus infections across large parts of the country. That's according to the top US infectious disease expert. He says the next two weeks will be critical to the country's ability to manage the new cases. His warning comes as political polarization competes for attention with public health advice. Health officials in the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia are conducting mass coronavirus testing after officials reimposed lockdown measures on more than 640,000 people. Residents of the Gütersloh and Warendorf districts in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia face severe restrictions on their movements. Authorites took the lockdown decision after a major spike in virus infections at a meat processing plant in the region. Some 1,500 workers of the Tönnies slaughterhouse have tested postive for Covid-19. Some other developments in the pandemic: - Deaths in Latin America and the Caribbean now exceed 100,000. - Australia has recorded its first virus-related fatality in a month after an 80-year-old man died in the state of Victoria. - The EU may ban travellers from the US, Brazil and Russia when it reopens its external borders, according to the New York Times. - Tokyo says it expects a large number of new cases after a virus cluster was discovered in an office building.

Temperatures in the Arctic Circle have hit an all-time record, with a town in Siberia reaching an unprecedented peak of 38 degrees Celsius over the weekend. This comes amid a record-breaking heat wave that's left the region scrambling to contain a spate of severe wildfire. Many locals have welcomed the development but to experts, Siberia’s unseasonably high temperatures are cause for concern. Rising heat across the Arctic has led to widespread wildfires in the Sakha Republic, where Verkhoyansk is located. Local authorities say more than 275,000 hectares are burning. The heat wave is also causing permafrost, or permanently frozen soil, to thaw at a faster pace. In late May, the Arctic saw one of its worst environmental disasters in decades, when a fuel reservoir collapsed near Norilsk, spilling 21,000 tons of diesel into local rivers, an accident blamed in part on melting permafrost.

The German city of Stuttgart, home to Mercedes Benz, has begun cleaning up after a night of "unprecedented" violence. The unrest erupted on Saturday night and early Sunday morning after police started carrying out drug checks at the city's main square, Schlossplatz. Eyewitnesses told DW that everything escalated after a teen tried to run away from the police and officers chased him. At that moment, partiers from other groups stepped in "out of solidarity" with the teen and began attacking police. Videos that circulated on social media showed rioters hurling cobble stones and other objects at police vehicles. In one video, a man runs at a police officer kneeling on the ground and kicks him in his side, knocking the officer down as others could be heard cheering him on. Nineteen officers were wounded in the violence. The clashes spilled over into the shopping district, where rioters smashed storefronts. Several shops were looted, including a jewelry store, mobile phone shop, and sporting goods shop. An estimated 500 people, many of them teens or young adults, were involved. Twenty-four suspects were eventually arrested. The unrest has residents, and some of the youths who were present, left wondering: How did things get so out of hand?

The violent death of George Floyd in the United States, under the knee of a white police officer, sparked outrage across Europe. Many there see parallels between what happened to him and their own experiences with authorities at home. Racism, racial profiling and police brutality are all realities for black people and other minorities in Europe. Though fatal encounters with police officers aren't as frequent as in the US, experts say European police are by no means innocent of excessive violence or racial bias. Cases of racial violence by police and a lack of punishment are often attributed to institutional racism. The killing of George Floyd has energized the debate about anti-racism efforts in Europe, where societies usually fail to admit that inequality exists.

But as governments around the world track the virus - can we be sure they aren't also tracking citizens?

Relations between North and South Korea remain tense a day after Pyongyang threatened to restart military exercises in the demilitarized zone bordering South Korea. Citing the army, state media reported that troops would be sent to the industrial park in the border town of Kaesong and to the Kumgang Mountains on the east coast. Guard posts in the demilitarized buffer zone between the two countries will be reestablished, it added. Tensions on the Korean peninsula hit a new low Tuesday when Pyongyang blew up its joint liaison office with Seoul. Kim Yo Jong, the powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, called out the South for making a "tactless and sinister proposal" in its offer to send an envoy, according to a statement reported by North Korean news agency KCNA. Up until a year ago, the two had been making steps towards a more peaceful co-existence - there's little sign of any of that now.

President Donald Trump says the US will slash the number of American troops in Germany by nearly 10,000 from current levels of about 35-thousand.

The move has shaken the NATO military alliance and Germany, which serves as a base for many of the US troops who deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan.

US President Donald Trump claimed he was taking it to help ward off the coronavirus, a course of action scientists do not recommend. That said, there still appears to be some confusion about the drug's effects.

Which statues are being torn down right now? | DW News
21 day ago
Global anti-racism protesters have set their sights on monuments with racist, colonial legacies. But whose statues have gotten in the focus of the antiracial justice movement? Belgian officials removed a statue of King Leopold II after it was defaced by anti-racism protesters. Between 1885 and 1908, the monarch made what is now the Democratic Republic of Congohis own private colony.He turned it into a massive labor camp and reigned over the deaths of 10 million Congolese A statue of Robert Milligan, an 18th-century slave trader, was removed from its place outside a museum in London. Milligan owned sugar plantations in Jamaica and had over 500 slaves. Protesters sprayed the word 'racist' on former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's memorial. Churchill is said to have viewed white people as superior and refused to distribute wheat to starving people in India in 1943. Protesters in Virginia tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus before setting it on fire and dumping it in a lake Columbus is venerated by many for his exploration of the Americas. But his role in killing, kidnapping and looting around the Caribbean islands and the American mainland has sparked controversy. Anti-racism protesters pulled down the statue of 17th-century English slave trader Edward Colston and threw it into the harbor. Colston's statue is now set to be retrieved from the waters and exhibited in a museum alongside Black Lives Matter placards to explain the 300-year story of slavery.

At a dramatic Congressional hearing, the brother of George Floyd has called on lawmakers to make sure he did not die in vain. Floyd's killing in police custody ignited protests across America and around the globe. The plea by Philonise. Floyd come as demands grow to reform policing and stop African-Americans dying from excessive force by white police officers. A changing awareness of the past is manifesting itself in other ways too - statues of Confederate leaders are being taken down. One standout case is the pending removal of the Confederacy's main hero, General Robert E. Lee in Richmond.

Germany confirms US plans to pull troops, is Japan next? | DW News
22 days ago
The German government has confirmed it's been informed the U-S may be considering a partial withdrawal of American troops from the country. This follows media reports that President Donald Trump had ordered the removal of nearly 10-thousand troops from Germany, almost a third of the US military personnel stationed in the country. A German goverment spokesperson said that while they're aware of the report, a decision has yet to be made by the US. But Berlin isn't the only ally coming under pressure from the Trump administration. The White House has also asked Japan to significantly up Its contribution to maintaining American forces. The US has guaranteed Japan's defense since the end of World War Two. It has more than 50-thousand personnel stationed at facilities across the country. Washington puts the price tag at some 5-point-7 Bbillion dollars, much of which is already paid for by Japan. The cost-sharing agreement is due to be renegotiated next year. Japan is already spending more on defense, but on its own forces.

How sex workers' safety and livelihood are threatened by the coronavirus pandemic | COVID-19 Special
23 days ago
A global pandemic means the sex workers of the world are facing difficulties. Potential epidemiological superspreaders, that's what some German politicians called sex workers during the coronavirus outbreak. A label that's caused some pushback. But protecting both their health and income is a hard balance to strike. Like few other professions, their health and livelihood are on the line and the varying degrees of legality in within which they operate provide another layer of vulnerability. Many in the sex work community are struggling to survive. Now brothels and other establishments are re-opening in a lot of countries, we look at how the pandemic has been impacting a business that is the very opposite of social distancing.

Will China’s new security law being forced on Hong Kong be the end of autonomy in the territory?
Will China’s new security law being forced on Hong Kong be the end of autonomy in the territory?
23 days ago
In an exclusive interview with DW’s Conflict Zone, Hong Kong’s former security secretary, Regina Ip, says China had to act. “Beijing authorities have no option but to get on with introducing a set of laws that will protect national security and discourage separatist activities,” Ip told Tim Sebastian. Given China’s human rights record, which includes mass surveillance and has seen the charge of separatism used to incarcerate millions of Uighurs in “re-education” camps in Xinjiang province, would Hong Kong not be taking a huge gamble with the new law? “Don’t jump to conclusions … you are talking about mainland China. You're not talking about Hong Kong,” the pro-Beijing politician told Sebastian. Read the background and get the key quotes here - p.dw.com/p/3dYia The new national security legislation for Hong Kong could see severe punishments for offenses such as disrespecting the Chinese national anthem and national flag, as well as the establishment of Chinese security agencies in Hong Kong. Since Britain returned Hong Kong to China in 1997, the territory has enjoyed widespread autonomy under the principle of one country, two systems, enshrined in Hong Kong’s basic law. But in 2019 the streets of Hong Kong erupted in protest when the territory’s pro-Beijing chief executive, Carrie Lam, sought to introduce legislation that could have seen suspects extradited from Hong Kong to mainland China. Millions demonstrated in sometimes violent protests and Lam withdrew the bill. Allegations of violence were directed at both demonstrators and police. “Dangerous weapons have been used in a lot of so-called peaceful protests … and innocent people have been killed,” Ip said. “In the past year, we have seen a lot of violence, a lot of subversive activity, a lot of terrorist activities,” she told Sebastian.
