and reproduce so they don't know what the side effects could be going to and i can't thank you very much indeed people in the u.s. can now say she lies outside without a mosque if they've been fully vaccinated that's the nation's surprise from the centers for disease control and prevention president joe biden says it's not a reason for people to get the job the bottom line is clear if you're vaccinated you could do more things more safely both outdoors as well as indoors for so for those who haven't got their vaccinations especially if you're younger or think you don't need it this is another great reason to go get backs unaided now now yes the vaccines are savy your life but also the lives of the people around you. and white house correspondent kimberly how could explain that this is an incentive based approach to easing restrictions just prior
12:09 am
to joe biden making that address to the nation there or here at the white house he didn't fact our have his team of public health officials speaking to reporters and they said this is exactly what they hope the effects will be of this lifting of the mass guidelines for those fully vaccinated the public health campaign has really been successful so far new numbers show us that more than half of all americans have now received at least one dose of the pfizer mcgurn or johnson and johnson vaccine and the hope is is that this trajectory will continue but what we're seeing in the united states is that now it seems to be a case of more supply than there is demand because of that vaccine hesitancy in some communities that's why the public health officials and the president are hoping this lifting of the mask mandate for outdoor small gatherings will be the incentive that people need to go and get the vaccination themselves coming up on

with the trees. jeppe. at least 3 people have died and 4 missing in booking a fast so after an armed group attacked a convoy in the country's east 2 spanish journalists and an irish national were killed in the ambush on an anti poaching patrol in eastern region the government confirmed that of the 4 people missing 3 a furnace and one is a book could now be national photos of bodies have been circulating online for she said they haven't been formally identified so far no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. the u.s. navy says it fired warning shots at boats from the iranian revolutionary guard on patrol in the gulf on monday more their split 2nd to mike hanna who's in washington d.c. might want to know about it. but the u.s. navy has released a statement saying that 3 iranian assault craft continually but essentially buys to
12:14 am
the 2 u.s. vessels in international waters repeatedly crossing across the bow of the 2 vessels the whole incident lasted about 3 hours warning shots were fired by the u.s. vessels loud hailer as were used and the u.s. navy says this incident actually endangered all the craft in the particular area so this is the 1st time that this is happened in about a year last such incident was a year ago and it comes as a time as well when the u.s. is attempting to get into rick talks going with the iranian government on its nuclear program so certainly this type of incident could have a major diplomatic impact as well and giving us an israeli officials also be meeting to discuss the threat iran poses what's come out of that. well no clear statement coming from that particular meeting the u.s. and israeli officials who were meeting to discuss essentially focusing on the
12:15 am
iranian nuclear program and the threat that israel believes that this poses to israel itself and the rest of the region but also coming under discussion was the arraign use of drones and what is described as its aggressive stance in the region the incident that is being reported on in the course of the day with valving the naval vessels would be seen within this particular category but it sensually it's the u.s. is attempting to stay on the same page as the israelis at the same time as it is destroying to initiate those in direct talks with a view to restoring the 2015 nuclear peace deal mike hanna thank you very much. you know his states is ordering its nonessential embassy staff out of afghanistan as the military steps up the withdrawal of its troops only personnel who have to be physically in couple for their jobs will remain meanwhile the u.s. special representative for afghanistan reconciliation sound
12:16 am
a whole is out and has been testifying before a senate committee about the pullout let's cross to an official in washington d.c. and ellen presumably a number of senators are concerned about the withdrawal. some are concerned others think it is a very bad idea you remember there was just april the 14th when joe biden unknowns that all u.s. troops would be out of afghanistan by september that will mark 20 years since they moved in after the attacks on 911 here in the united states in new york and washington though the trumpet ministration had already said it was intending to pull all the troops out by me that timeline has been pushed back by joe biden talks continue brokered by the khatami's with the taliban and other representatives of the afghan government certainly we had from bob menendez who is the chairman a democrat on the foreign relations committee he said that he was worried that there was still some form of antiterrorism operation available to the united states
12:17 am
in the area people have been talking about possibly setting up some sort of forward base in india he also said it was important that they didn't take their eyes off afghanistan after the withdrawal of course many people believe that after the russians left the u.s. stopped funding the fighters there they didn't want to pay any attention and certainly no put any more money into afghanistan and that red led to the rise of the taliban and subsequently the rise of a some of bin laden from james ray should is the republican leader on the committee he said that this was simply a mistake that he thought in a few months time the taliban would be strong militarily and they would move into kabul overthrowing the government there and the u.s. would have another problem right in the middle of the place that caused them so much difficulty 20 years ago but from ambassador khalilzad he said look the deal is done and this is the best possible deal the u.s. could get and after 20 years it was time to leave afghanistan the world has changed
12:18 am
since 2001 that terrorist threat including from outside is now geographically dispersed and africa the middle east and asia. we now face new urgent challenges as the president has said we must fight the battles for the next 20 years not the last 20 democratic senator jeanne shaheen from new hampshire got emotional when she highlighted the 7 women she said had been killed by the taliban said it was a very important over the next 4 months that the u.s. do all it can to make sure that women and minorities are represented in any future government and the taliban do not go back to killing women and restricting their rights as far as the ambassador while he said he believes that there will be no sweeping into kabul by the taliban he said they have looked at the options they realize it is either a negotiated settlement or a long unwinnable war and he believes for future generations the taliban have
12:19 am
agreed that it would probably be better to have a negotiated settlement many senators on the committee are hoping he's right and fisher thank you very much indeed. and biden ministrations hope opening new shelters for unaccompanied children who've crossed the us mexico border and spending about $60000000.00 a week on that cat is to reunite the children that parents were grenell supports on one new shelter in southern california that's now receiving child migrants. in the city of long beach just south of los angeles a sprawling convention center has been transformed into a shelter for up to 1000 migrant children seeking asylum in the united states inside there are toys games recreation facilities and school classes all meant to provide humane care and lessen the trauma children feel after making the long dangerous journey to the u.s.
12:20 am
border the mission of this center here in long beach is quick family reunification the reifications should be done as fast as possible and we also know that the space that we are in is temporary is incredibly important that in this moment we treat every single child with compassion with kindness and with love the bike did ministration has been under intense political pressure to deal effectively with the large numbers of unaccompanied children mostly from central america crossing the border the numbers have leveled off from a peak of around 20000 miners in custody in march but officials are pushing hard for the children to be released to their parents or other family quickly immigrant rights advocates were allowed to examine the facilities what we saw with this center is that number one when they will walk in at all have
12:21 am
a sense of welcome to reunite with their child parents must show documentation and give a d.n.a. sample after release the child will have a hearing scheduled on their application. for asylum most of those parents are also on documented but the budget ministration pledges it will drop target them for deportation if they come forward to claim their children that's in sharp contrast with the previous administration's attitude toward migrant families during the trumpet ministration the policy of that administration was if parents came forward and they were undocumented maybe a week or 2 weeks later immigration authorities would be at their doorstep so that created a great level of anxiety and then babble and at the kids say ultimately developmental aid to impoverished central american countries and an overhaul of u.s. immigration laws are the keys to stabilizing the situation so that in the future no

child should have to cross the border or alone robert oulds long beach california. joins us now by skype from phoenix arizona is gladys money out she's a child advocate program director at the young center for immigrant children's rights and was an undocumented child migrant herself thanks very much for being with us i want if you can describe how you see the situation at the border now for children. thanks laura the situation of the border that the numbers are numbers that i haven't seen before 'd i've been working with unaccompanied children for the past 15 years and the numbers this year are i'm president. and that there were reports of children originally being kept in border facilities just similar to jails for far longer than the 72 hour limit is it your understanding that that kind of thing has now stopped on. the goal of the administration have been to reduce that length of stay in the border patrol stations by opening up the emergency
12:23 am
intake sites such as the one in long beach california so that kids can be moved border patrol stations into these emergency intake state overseen by us healthy military bases what about the progress on reuniting children with families what's your understanding of how that's going. on that we think of administration has made great exploring in terms of changing certain requirements that used to be in place before that there to a longer process for beautification so what we're seeing on the ground now are changes that are being implemented to release kids to their families in the united states out of pace and that has been something that in the advocate and the advocate side of the of the fence act has been celebrated and talked to as we were saying and see what we talked to a few pictures of kids who arrived at the border what ages are they generally that the children coming across. the ages tend to be the the majority of them tend to be
12:24 am
like 151617 year old but in the most recent years we've seen kids come to see you you'll see kids as young as toddlers 23 year olds come in as well into the in the care of the office a refugee resettlement what about the fact is that a driving people to leave what countries are they coming from and what are the main reasons they give for setting off. the main countries that they tend to control remain the northern time concentra america or what amala on board us and the sending doctors the push factors as we call them tend to be the same in security instability the. desire to have basic human necessities available to them that are not available to them in country. i mean i just want to go back to the fact that you were a child a migrant yourself when you see the the situation there the moment it is it too old

12:34 am
struggling to counter skepticism from voters. in occupied east jerusalem this is defined as palestinian political activity the kind that can result in a rest and in recent days has put on this day there are no israeli security forces to be seen no crowd either just 10 prospective candidates for the palestinian legislative council trying to infuse a population that hasn't voted for 15 years and doesn't expect to now it's all or ought to convince them and to be with him to bring him. to a new hole for a new is that this. has always been. a hopes yes i hope so. but if residents of occupied east jerusalem have a shared such hope it's been fast evaporating what elections sorry i'm asking what elections are you talking about when you are excited about the prospect of taking. because i know there is that there isn't
12:35 am

of pregnancies end in miscarriage about 2 percent of women have had 2 miscarriages and was one percent have had 3 or more analysis of pregnancies in 7 countries on the risk among black women is 43 percent greater than white women other significant risk factors include age previous miscarriages weight stress night shifts smoking and alcohol. well sean quinby is the deputy director of tommies national center for miscarriage research and a professor of obstetrics at the university of work she joins us by skype thanks very much indeed for being with us i want to start with the finding on the risk being so much more increased for black women what are the factors that might put black women black women more risk. well that's a really interesting question but that was the finding that there was an increased risk of miscarriage in black women was actually a surprise to the group or researchers so at the moment we've only got some ideas but we do need further research to really understand why so one of the things that
12:46 am
we think might contribute to the miscarriages is it's black women are more susceptible to things like diabetes and hypertension and so if these diseases are poorly controlled that's a put you increased risk of miscarriage that also increased risk of fibroids and that may increase the risk of miscarriage but there may also be social factors it may be that in some black communities are less willing or seek medical help which which is maybe a situation in the u.k. but it really is something we really need to get to the bottom of and what you think there is such as of reclaimed live data on miscarriages general well that was one of the surprising findings we did when we created all this data for our research was scandinavian countries and north american counted do keep good records of miscarriage most other countries don't so even the u.k. where most of the authors of base just not record miscarriages so you can imagine if you don't record them i can't compare the miscarriage rates in the u.k.
12:47 am
when black women or white were in the u.k. to scandinavia and a lot of countries in the world has absolutely no data so one of our major suggestions from all this work we've done is that we it's really important that countries and cities are aware of their miscarriage rate because things like pollution increase a miscarriage rate is a really important figure of national public health team is there still a degree of to boo in in women talking about miscarriages and that perhaps contributes to the lack of understanding or lack of research into them. yes absolutely. a lot of women feel very guilty when they miscarry and then my colleagues from developing countries said in lots of countries a lot of stigma and shame associated with miscarriage and that's a really terrible thing because not only do you have the grief of losing a baby you stigmatize feel shame feeling guilt guilt dick it's important that people realize that miscarriage is common it is out there there are things you can do to prevent and there is something you should talk about what did the research
12:48 am
suggest about the effects on mental health for women who suffer miscarriages so just one miscarriage can have severe fex on people's mental health so we found that 20 percent of women and actually suffer p.t.s.d. after miscarriage 9 months after miscarriage also people who miscarry sadly an increased risk of suicide as well as anxiety and depression so it isn't a nothing a vent and having a miscarriage is a serious event that requires support from family and friends and the medical profession and some of the spin off in this this idea in the health system i was reading from your wrist research there that this is the just try again idea that seems to be pretty pervasive if that's the case how how do you shift that and get health care system to to take them more seriously well that's exactly the point of our series we're trying to say that each miscarriage matters and after each miscarriage the woman deserves some care so they at least deserve advice as to how
12:49 am
to get their body in the best shape possible for trying for a future pregnancy and also some support i mean because there's so many miscarriages obviously it's very difficult the health care systems to support everybody but you know to seek support from family and friends to talk to family and friends you know to have social support support from patient led support groups and charities and also from the medical to medical system if you have particularly severe mental health problems and it is something to take seriously professor on quimby thank you very much indeed for joining us thank you thank you. still ahead this news out the door for the 1st ever arab cup football tournament genoa we had to tell you who's playing who.

12:53 am
not go on i think this 2 sides to that point in a country like india you know everyone across the years looks forward to the 2 month extravaganza that is the i.p.l. i think standards are lifted and especially during depressing times like this people will look forward to it and that is that one side of the coin says a lot of jobs that are at stake there are thousands of jobs beyond just the luxuries and the millions of the players that make it and i think that's why it's a hard one to just cut the rope but i i do think there will be a few personal calls made of each other that actually made a bold statement when we stepped out of the seat the personal reasons they're going to die summed it up quite quite simply said we actually feel safe in the bubble but morally i just can't put the situation together because there's a philosophical question that he must address which is how are we justifying the government culprits and to be spending so much money when people are lining up to not get a hospital bed i think that's the big question that people and a conundrum that players are facing as well ramit. drew one hole in the 1st leg of
