12:08 pm
the information indicates they are colombian citizens, retired members of the national army. we have given instructions by the national government to our police and the army to collaborate in the investigation. to clarify these facts immediately, public force is fully at the disposition of the sister republic of haiti. this is all unfolded among a political backdrop of confusion about who is actually in charge. well 1st i would say that it is still, it is our view and we continue to call 4 elections to happen this year. and we believe they should proceed. we know that free and fair elections will facilitate a peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected president. and we certainly continue to support haiti's democratic institutions. louise had been ruling by decree after the majority of parliament was dissolved in january last year. now both claud, joseph and ariel henry, bow senior politicians claim they are in charge. haiti a desperately poor country where the corona virus is spreading,
12:09 pm
violence is surging and political uncertainty rules the day. and now international mystery of who assassinated the 53 year old president. and why had to call him al jazeera washington. a factory fire and bangladesh has killed dozens of people and say, how many more are still trapped inside the play? you started on thursday and it's be burning for more than 24 hours. several people were injured when they jumped from the 2nd and 3rd floor to escape. factory find the common in bangladesh, where many of the businesses operate illegally and without safety issues. of course, south africa is due to will shortly on an application by former president jacob's humor to suspend his prison sentence. soon began soothing a 15 month turn for contempt of court on thursday. the found guilty of failing to appear before a corruption enquiries fridays. here is one of several legal challenges owned by whom to try and stay out of prison. committee miller is outside the court now in
12:10 pm
petersburg. so just run through what we expect to happen in court today. well i think it's also important to remember that this application was made before wednesday night when the former president was imprisoned when he was taken to the school to correctional facility, where he is now spending a 2nd day. but also what very central to this application as the judge had said on tuesday is the issue of jurisdiction. and that's because the constitutional court was the one that ordered that the former president spend 15 months in prison for contempt of court. and all his lawyers have approached a high court, which is a lower court, and wouldn't normally have the jurisdiction to even consider such an application. and now it's become a little bit more complicated in that's the form of president is already in jail. it is likely, according to legal experts, that's the judge,
12:11 pm
would say that he doesn't have the jurisdiction. and so that sentence wouldn't be suspended. and why his legal team was looking for a suspension is because he's also got a pending matter, again at the constitutional court to try and have the court try and resend that judgement. or at the very least reduce the sentence that given him or 15 months. it's unlikely his birth will be successful at the court, but we are expecting the judgements in about an hour or so. okay, for me that one is going to happen next, presume or both in terms of legal challenges, but also if this prison stanton stays, i mean he's not going to spend 15 months in prison. is he we have had some clarity from the justice minister in south africa. we said that based on good behavior and
12:12 pm
a number of factors before the president would be eligible for parole in about 3 months just over 3 months. so we could see the former president released at that point, and that's if the constitutional court doesn't change its mind. we're expecting his lawyers to return to that court next week. we don't know if the constitutional court will give a judgment soon off to hearing those arguments. or if it will take some time. and i also think for authorities here, the concern has been around security. if we look back over the last week, we did have a number of support to come out to the former president's residence in canada to voice their support to protest that that impending imprisonment which did happen. but we are hearing people say that there are still prepared to protest to demonstrate specifically in the province of counseling to tell where we are. so there are a number of factors that play here. one that the former president has been in prison, but also that they are a significant number of people who are angered by that imprisonment and they're
12:13 pm
willing to to voice spect anger and sometimes violently, but just outside the pizza merits. but by court we do see a significant police presence and it's quite clear that the mandate is to keep things as calm as possible, which they are presently. but they are these factors to consider for authorities and also in terms of what happens next. all right, thank you for that for me to mila and peter merits, but still head on al jazeera egypt, a nation of over 100000000 sold is facing. and the, the tension for the un security council meeting, the regional concerns of grand renee told them that a dispute over its impact running on empty families and indonesia, the search for oxygen as the country struggle to contain the latest growth of our self reg ah,

12:18 pm
increasingly precious commodity, as hospitals in java run out of room for the sick people fight for their loved ones to survive. for mom, i had trouble finding oxygen last night. i went to 5 places, including this door and a large medicine market. all stocks ran out minority is trying to care for her elderly father at home. he's diabetic and has problems with his heart and kidneys. his oxygen saturation is low, but he could not get a place that you caught his crowded hospitals. everyday. she struggles to find oxygen for him. but tank is super difficult to get. we bought it and then suddenly the owner said they needed it back because it also got covert and then we looked around and got this big tank. but it's difficult to refill these public health clinic in because he is trying to reach those who couldn't get admitted to hospital
12:19 pm
. but these doctors are also struggling with shortages. we need really need about oxygen and. and then also the medicine because we see the condition. so we need to see fit this. if we cannot find it. dr. ernie says the government's data doesn't tell the full story because so many people are dying before they take a p. c r test. oh, we feel so bad because right now i've lost a home. sometimes we have report, report before reported to someone died at home when we checked the body with onto her team tried to monitor patients in the area, but there were more than 300 of them and only 30 health workers. as hospitals reached capacity and a forced to turn away critically ill people,
12:20 pm
roving teams of public health, clinic work as a trying to reach those in need of medical attention to monitor their condition and to provide them with oxygen and medication. but there are too many patients and not enough medics and they don't have the time or resources to help everyone in need. the ministry of health, since it is trying to increase medical oxygen production and add more beds in hospitals. but each day, more and more people are falling in because of the very difficult supply and ready to go. so why help us find the help us that they need the way, but how could it be without even the prospect of getting medical care people continue to die in their own homes in front of their loved ones. jessica washington out to 0 because he well dr. dale fisher is a professor in the infectious diseases division at the national university of
12:21 pm
singapore. he says, while the delta variant is behind the search, there are many other factors that play. if you look at south korea, for instance, they've had cases for most of the pandemic, they've never tried to get to 0. so, so really it's, it's about the number of existing people, the number of existing daily cases growing. and i think that's probably partly fatigue, partly partly delta, but, but then there's other countries, for instance, malaysia that it was doing very well based on its border controls. and once those were breached in the 2nd half of last year, then we really found that the, using that their public health interventions, they had trouble sort of putting the cat back in the back, the majors to control coded come down to those public health measures. the contact tracing the current training, the testing. then there's the border controls,
12:22 pm
then there's the social restrictions and then those back thing. so obviously once there's many cases inside the country, then, then the border controls. i'm not so relevant. most of these countries have got back to the same rights in single digits still. so they're really only left with the public health system which, which is challenging and a lot of low and middle income countries. and then the social restrictions and the social restrictions generally main, lots of lots of income. and i don't even know if many of these countries have got capacity for income replacement. so. so all of the for mechanisms to control coded are actually being solely tested in, in these countries. it has to saddam that have urged the un security council to acts against the controversial make a damn that if the opiate is building on the nile river, they say the ground if you open renee on them, limits their access to fresh water. the c o b a says the un should not be involved

. and diplomatic editor james base reports from the united nations. the outside un headquarters, e. c o, p, and protest has gathered. they didn't want this meeting to take place to demonstrate that point. unlike egypt and sudan, ethiopia didn't send its foreign minister to this meeting. instead, it was represented by its water and irrigation minister. of the con, union is seized of the matter. and is emily facilitating our negotiation? that is why it is regrettable that are she steadily countries of the 2 brings a matter to the security company. it was sudan and egypt that had demanded this meeting, saying the fact that ethiopia is again filling the damn amounts to a threat to international peace and security. does not an overstatement to affirm that for egypt the girl is an existing chauffeur at. this is a situation that egypt cannot and will not tolerate. later i pressed the foreign
12:24 pm
minister on what action his country was prepared to take. so all their circumstances where you would consider military action. the matter of egypt, the protection of the rights of it citizen, is inherent and is a matter that necessarily any responsible government would apply itself to clearly growing tension between 3 countries. 2 of them with a population of more than 100000000 people in another with a population of more than 40000000 is very concerning. but the security council is unlikely to take any direct action. diplomats tell me they hope this meeting will force the 3 countries back into african union, lead mediation, james base al jazeera at the united nations. well, let's get more now from catherine joy, who's in the south of katherine. so if your opinion officials have held

12:26 pm
a led by the african union. the to can is if you don and egypt have also had a position that if you should stop this 2nd ongoing feeling of the dumb and t a binding agreement is reached. so we spoke to back to the movie about that. and it doesn't seem that if you're going to have that position at all, because the basset has said that it's not a new unilateral decision that the only responsibility that you feel hawes is to inform the other countries of what's going on. and it did indeed inform those 2 countries of the feeling of the down, which he says is going to continue to the end. this is a project that many, many europeans are passionate about. more than 65000000 of them are not committed to that i'm not connected to the grid and we talked, we talked to some of them in the last few days. and they really saying that easily waiting for the completion of the dom and the benefits that are going to come out of it. right, thank you very much for that update. catherine. so we're there in the south of
