they may be forced to return to myanmar. a lot of the stories that we cover all highly complex so it's very important that we make them as understandable as we can as al-jazeera correspondents that's what we strive to do. this is al-jazeera. out of their own it clark this is the news hour live from doha coming up the next 60 minutes south africa finds no safety concerns at johnson johnson's covert 19 vaccine but joined other countries in pausing its roll out. and now it is time to bring our forces home. years after war stretching 2 decades america's top diplomat
1:01 pm
says that the u.s. and nato will leave afghanistan together for formal announcement is expected later . somalia's president signs a controversial law to extend his term by 2 years despite threats of international sanctions. a defense witness and derek a show vince trial testifies the use of force against george for it was justified. and i'm only a hardened sports with a 100 days to go until the opening ceremony olympic organizers insist the tokyo games will start as planned will be live in the host city where officials claim they are winning the fight against the coronavirus. so that in south africa says a late stage trial of the johnson and johnson cave in 1000 vaccine show no major safety concerns however it has decided to suspend its use over concerns raised in the united states that it could be linked to blood clots. the single dose vaccine
1:02 pm
was the only one being administered but it has other doses on order from pfizer that says india has set another record daily high with nearly 185001000 cases that's about twice as many as brazil and that in the united states the 2 other western countries and south korea has also reported its highest daily rise in 1000 cases since january more than 700 over the past day their health experts are warning a 4th wave is looming as cluster spread from greater soul to more than a dozen regions and cities and the government is being criticized for a slow vaccine rollout. so u.s. health authorities say they've decided to pull the implementation of johnson jones of the johnson and johnson job as a precaution off the 6 cases a blood cruelty pudukkottai as more now from mariana. it was heralded as a big step forward out of the pandemic the johnson and johnson vaccine easier to
1:03 pm
administer just one shot and cheaper than the other approved vaccines but now federal authorities are urging health care providers to hold off on using it the reason of the 6800000 people who have received this vaccine 6 people have developed blood clots one died another is in critical condition critics say the federal response is an over reaction you've already heard from. a cost of this very rare or your unusual out of $6.00 almost $7000000.00 rocks nations a word that's less than one in a 1000000. compared to how she's going to go that is 10 times lower than what you found where. in germany and 4 times. lower than what you found in these type of blood clots show up in the unvaccinated population between $2.00 to $14.00 people per 1000000 in the united states every year but authorities here at the f.d.a. say it's the combination of this type of blood clot and low platelets that has
1:04 pm
raised the alarm because if doctors don't know to ask have you had the johnson and johnson vaccine they can give the wrong treatment and that can be fatal officials are urging people to keep an eye out for symptoms pay attention do you have symptoms headache you have shortness of breath chest discomfort do you have anything that resembles a neurological syndrome and obviously if you have something as serious as a seizure that's pretty clear but there is concern that this will only further increase vaccine hesitancy with more than a 3rd of people telling post. they will wait to take the shot or take it only if it is required and many say they simply won't take it ever officials say they expect the delay to last just days and the biden administration says it won't impact their overall goal for how many shots are administered but what they uncover about this could have a huge impact on the rest of the globe as many countries are counting on this
1:05 pm
vaccine to get them past the pandemic pedicle hane al-jazeera silver spring maryland where let's get more on what's happening in south africa we can speak to professor helen reese who is a member of south africa's ministerial advisory committee on code 19 and its vaccines and she joins us live by skype from johannesburg how the resale came to the program is a slightly confusing picture isn't it because now south africa's health authority has said there is no casual relationship between the johnson and johnson job and the development of blood clots but is also king for polls in implementation so what's happening. so in south africa we've been rolling out johnson and johnson backs into health care workers as part of what's called the 3 in the child this is an open label study where we only get the vaccine we don't give the seed but we continue to monitor safely things like side effects and safety and in the south african setting where we live in this 300000 doses we haven't seen this rare
1:06 pm
condition but because this has been seen in the united states and they're evaluating it now it was thought wise that we just put a temporary hold while the u.s. has more investigation we don't know globally nobody can say at the moment whether this is local who causal i.e. is it the vaccine that's causing this rare condition or is it other factors that pertain to the individual that might have contributed to this condition such as we're looking for one right why do you think there is such concern in the united states because it is a big goal isn't it because in fact these free teletubbies are incredibly rare one in a 1000000 is that not within the normal parameters friend of any vaccine. you know you're quite right i mean one of the things not only the code back then but whenever we roll out a new vaccine we're always very aware that we might have got data from critical
1:07 pm
trials of many tens of thousands of people but now we're going to be running it up to millions of people and if you see a rare side effect it might be male it might be associated with the vaccine but it might just be that once you're old exacta millions of people such conditions live that life and that's nature and that people tell you you need to be able to differentiate whether this is just a coincidence and not or whether it really is associated with the vaccine so that's what's being looked at at the moment but i think that what the f.d.a. has said is that they're being ultra cautious i think many regulators i'm a chill the regulator service to here in south africa as well we're being very cautious about safety signals and evaluating them that good news that to me assuring that the public on the other have this to say it's confusing for the public because if they go no go then to some few things you need to be able to be assured because we've already moved away from using the brushes and
1:08 pm
a good job in the south after having way and there's no danger here that there's more affair of the vaccine than the virus. well that is such an important point that you make and we have to get this into proportion and the previous a little sound bite you had was really stressing this this is another one case in a 1000000 people now if you look at because it is these about 50 'd percent of people will have these from baltic and balik and says that it's part of the pathology of cocoa that the terrible damage in the lungs to the heart to the brain to the kidney is the exception and then you know the really really common. signs and symptoms of coded now you have to weigh all that. if we do think this is truly an association it really really. association with a vaccine versus i really common risk which can be life threatening with the
1:09 pm
infection and this is a full benefit risk assessment so in the if we do think that there's a possible they pitch the next thing they'll say is there is the does the benefits outweigh the risk and this is what people have these they also have the astra zeneca vaccine that in fact the benefits of having a vaccine for you individually and for society in terms of stopping the pandemic the benefit in the case still outweigh the risk and this is the message coming from w h a lot of challenges and rolling out on the scale that professor had a recent appreciate your expertise thanks very much and thank you. well covered 9000 cases are soaring in india yet the center has been maharastra where new restrictions are coming into effect let's speak straightaway to elizabeth brown and he joins us live from new delhi and tell us more about the situation there and what's being done about it. hello nic so from wednesday evening until the rest of the month people in maharashtra will not be allowed to go

1:11 pm
out now in other parts of the country as well most recently in the state of gujarat have seen videos of a very long line of and we've been since waiting outside a clothing line hospital carrying patients a lot of them who are on oxygen supply waiting for beds reports of the official death toll both in the states of and mother predation not adding up to the number of bodies which are being carried out of clothes hospitals of that are. being cremated as well. so that it was withdrawn and in new delhi. putting more still ahead on news hour including another night of protests and minutes later after the shooting of a black man the police officer responsible has resigned. a left wing activist or the daughter of a jailed water problems we look at the choice faced by peruvians in the presidential runoff.
1:12 pm
of a 2 decade u.s. war in afghanistan is set to end president biden is due to announce that he will withdraw all remaining troops by september the 11th and that means pushing back a deadline set by his predecessor and speaking at a meeting with nato allies in brussels u.s. extra states anthony blinken hinted that other countries in the alliance will follow suit together we have achieved the goals that we we set out to achieve and now it is time to bring our forces home we will work very closely together in the weeks and months ahead on a safe deliberate and coordinated withdrawal of our forces from afghanistan but even as we do that. our commitment to afghanistan to its future will remain let's have more now from my kind of in washington it's been america's longest
1:13 pm
running war us troops were 1st deployed in afghanistan 20 years ago following the attacks on september the 11th now it will be set as a date by which the withdrawal will be concluded the president has been consistent in his view that there is not a military solution to afghanistan that we have been there for far too long that has been his view for some time this means president biden is pushing back that deadline up the 1st of may set by it's pretty to says donald trump last year. it's a timeline which a number of pentagon officials are believed to have argued against reaction in congress has been mixed for senate minority leader mitch mcconnell describing the withdrawal as a grave mistake of view shared in the statement by the ranking member of the house armed services committee mike rogers who says i am concerned that the president is so desperate to get a deal done that he's willing to capitulate rather than insist u.s.
1:14 pm
strategic objectives are met success but there's also significant support for the withdrawal senate foreign relations committee member chris murphy issued the statement after 20 years it's clear that our continued military presence will not deliver political stability to the country and the afghan people must decide their own future in coordination with our allies and partners as vice president joe biden argued strongly against the u.s. military presence in afghanistan but was overruled them by barack obama. but now as president he'll have his way a complete withdrawal of u.s. forces with no conditions attached mike hanna al-jazeera washington germany's defense minister has said it will likely follow suit and withdraw its troops from afghanistan germany has about 1300 forces on the ground recently extended its mission for 10 months britain had more than 9000 troops but since its mission ended
1:15 pm
in 2014 only 750 remain in a training and advisory role $36.00 countries are involved in total including italy and georgia which contribute over $800.00 each so let's take this on let's speak to that a notary who's a senior member of the afghan peace negotiation team he joins us live from kabul in afghanistan mr nuttery welcome to the program so 2 decades on the withdrawal is coming but later the taliban wanted and expected and now they've said they won't attend peace talks what impact will this have on peace negotiations. well the pieces of vital needs thought up on population and it should not be attached to any condition a peaceful settlement has been a desire of our government that we have been pursuing that and therefore we hope and expect the taliban would not attach or delay stop instrument of the permanence
1:16 pm
cease fire and. a peaceful end to this war to the citizens by other countries there's been war for too long people have suffered so much and it has been a war against international terrorism also and that's why our international partners were here to join hands it's a time now that everybody wants to see a peaceful end to this war and a peaceful settlement requires a genuine that's faithful engagement ok in finding that we're going to get that our way because it's all about and said that they will not attend so what impact will that have. well that certainly indicates that they do not have a desire or interest to engage in measures that will end this war peacefully of course their their decision is is impacting. all the preparations of those gone to get our governments we've made
1:17 pm
a lot of preparation and indicated that we're fully read in assisting gates with full preparation in finding a peaceful settlement and or is new ship to the conflict so that indicates if they don't attend to these talks on the conference that stumble then they have less of interest for peace more of an interest for war. and the afghan population will make its not only a decision but of course their judgment is already out what will this withdrawal mean for the balance of power not going to stop because the taliban are militarily in the ascendancy and they will often only held back by u.s. power not anymore. well in the past at least 2 years it has been our national security and defense forces that has been fighting on the front line and there's been specially since if every day is being legal. international
1:18 pm
foot on ground yes they did provide us with a military with the air support that certainly if the air support is gone that certainly makes the job of our forces a little bit difficult but we shall also at a to point to the fact that our air forces are. d.-day of their carrying out a lot of it strikes themselves. special forces are conducting operations and dependently their wish for the taliban but once the international forces would drop they would be able to take over and take over the government in kabul would be diminished once they they see the forces which will leave but they could not they will not be able to to date over the trees or to. expect a collapse of the government there are it is i want to how do you that what do you
1:19 pm
base that on because militarily the taliban have been in the ascendancy. the taliban have had the possibility of attacking. different locations and i wouldn't call it a full ascendance yes they have expanded some territories but not population areas they have taken some geographic but not aware of a large number of people with what left on the other hand our forces throughout the country have been able to push back to protect the civilian population from from the continuous attacks that they they have been carrying the taliban have become so there the call collation that if they do not engage in a peaceful settlement they would be able to win militarily is wishful thinking. that forces are committed population want to protect whether the gains in the past 2 decades and they would not want to see further bloodshed. in the country and
1:20 pm
therefore the best course of action forward is to engage in good faith in finding a peaceful settlement to this conflict not a shape that thanks very much thank you a u.s. delegation including 2 deputy secretaries of state has arrived in taiwan on a visit to beijing u.s. president joe biden has sent former senator chris dodd and deputy secretaries of state richard armitage and james steinberg to meet taiwan's meet is ahead of their arrival china's foreign ministry spokesman person warned the u.s. not to quote play with fire beijing regards taiwan as a breakaway province. somalia's president has extended his term in office for 2 more years president of mohammed a law he signed a bill into law despite opposition from some members of parliament his mandate ended in february sparking protests and calls for him to step down presidential and

parliamentary elections were jus to take place this year but leaders of 5 semi autonomous states have failed to agree on how voting should be conducted let's speak to our correspondent catherine so he joins us live now from nairobi and catherine so the process of law has not been followed here what's been the reaction in some audiences. yes a lot of somalis are saying that what the president has done is problematic on so many levels so he signed this motion into the last night but ideally what's supposed to happen according to the law is that once the lower house passes such a motion they have to forward it to the upper house the senate for approval or rejection so that stage has been skipped we also have had from the speaker of the senate of the upper house who said that they would have rejected this motion anyway because it was unconstitutional there's also a lot of reactions from different quarters we've had from
1:22 pm
a correlation of opposition presidential candidates and some leaders of the federal states particularly jubal and the end point land all of them saying that they reject this decision they reject any extension of the presidential term saying that president for just wants to cling onto power we've also had from somalia is key donors the e.u. the u.s. and the u.k. all of them speaking on the same tone in very strongly worded statements basically saying mr president if you continue with this we are going to rethink how we do business with you it will be business as usual talking about perhaps saget and sec targeted sanctions on some individual states to be stumbling blocks so really very difficult political times right now in somalia. deepens already existing divisions what impact will this have on the security of
1:23 pm
a country. yeah a lot of people are quite divided about what's going on and i've been speaking to some analysts and just somalis in general who are particularly quite worried about the political stability and the security in the country we have for example last night hard from a military commander who's very influential in mogadishu has a lot of soldiers who support him and he issued a statement saying that if the president continues with this hardline stance then he is going to seize the airport and now this very dangerous words especially with the armed group in somalia there a lot of people also saying they're worried about the military cells could divide itself in clan factions or divided self in support of the opposition and the president this basically would mean creating a vacuum in which all shabaab this armed group in somalia can take advantage of and
1:24 pm
ramp up attacks already in the last few months we have seen attacks by the group in mogadishu and other cities as well we have also in the last few weeks in part tests by opposition leaders protests that have turned violent there are fears that this could happen again so again and sat in times people very worried about the security situation and the impact this decision will have on the political scene. in nairobi thank you. but means incumbent president patrice title has won a 2nd term in an election by violence the result. received 86 percent of the goods but according to official data only half of eligible voters turned out all this from politicians boycotts of the poll many people angry that talum broke his promise to serve only one up interests has more now from call new on panini
