maintaining your wrong interest in negotiations, but it's not clear yet if you will be able to deliver on his promises. ah, the violence, the looting continues in south africa, the 72 people killed and hundreds more arrested on tuesday. ah, hello, we're going to come all santa maria, near and this is the world news from al jazeera. it was one seen as something of a current of our success story. now, south korea seen its biggest spike in cases, yet also more unmarked graves are discovered on the grounds of an indigenous school encounter. the country continues to reconcile with its dark part and democrats in the us of texas. go to washington, trying to avoid a debate on
a bill that would limit the voting rights and future elections. the state governor republican says they should be arrested. ah, everyone at least 72 people now confirmed, killed in the days of riots and losing across south africa. all triggered by the arrest of former president jacob xena hundreds have been arrested violence, which is also led to the suspension of covered 19 vaccinations. zoom, its foundation is said, the violence will stop if he's released from jail mister port. it's from family to mila. and janet spoke on this day of looting and riots. group alexandra township, in the north of johannesburg. police struggle to keep people away, but those temporarily disappeared by rubber coated bullets and p, i guess, returned within minutes. hours later, soldiers are deployed. the apprehended group of men,
they suspect of shooting at them, searching for guns and other weapons. with the army on the street, these business owners say they feel safe to return to see what they've lost. they find their stores gutted by looting and fires the same. i'm believe i'm 30 years these country, but i'm, i'm believe it is up in other parts of the halting province. there's also been extensive looting doors at this mall in deep cliff with all have been entirely ransacked. there's nothing left and soldiers that police have been deployed to places just like this to try and protect whatever little is left and also keep looters away. but preventing the looting in many areas in johannesburg has proven difficult and appears to be impossible to stop. here. the grocery stores a butcher shop banks and atm that completely destroyed security guards say they try
to keep looters away as they waited for the police. but it was too late, smart, shabby, worked at this food outlet. now i'm english because where, what am i supposed to do for now? where am i going to get paid? where's my salary gonna come from? because this is my landlord. hi, my goodness about my family. because of this kim enough that have been paging this place and the police were nowhere to be seen with why it's and the disruption of services in the hosting and natal provinces. their concerns, people will run out of food. they are many unhappy with the destruction. i don't know where am i going to fight? i don't know, as you can see that this bed. and there is a situation. people are not waking, but this is not the solution. the protests that began after the jailing of
former president jacob zoom. i have no escalated to riots linked to increasing poverty and inequality. south africa has been under varying stages of covert 19 locked down for more than a year. worsening unemployment already at 52 percent has field anger and resentment as a government that is struggling to cope for me. the miller, al jazeera johannesburg in let's look at covert news. now. south korea reporting its highest daily infection counts since the pandemic began restrictions in the capital sola, now at the highest level so far, infections also up in the united states. and we'll have more of that and moment with mike hannah, he's there in washington, d. c. let's start though rob mcbride in, sol, as i say, restrictions high there. but the even more concerning thing is that numbers are
rising in other areas of the country. that's right. they see they hear in the greatest. so metropolitan area, this council, around half of south korea, is population. the highest level of restrictions have been in place since the start of this week. it means, for example, in the evening time after 6 pm, that can be no social gatherings of more than 2 people outside of which to the many parts of the city is virtually curfew. but the reason increasing concerned about areas outside of sol with the numbers of new cases more than doubling recently. so we are seeing the, these new restrictions coming into both tomorrow, thursday, but much of the provinces outside of sold at the 2nd highest level of restrictions that will mean, for example, no gatherings have bold and 8 people. there's a real concern here that as we get into the peak summer season this summer as last summer, south koreans who would normally be vacationing overseas, instead of that by large,
they are here in south korea and all heading will result destinations along the east coast. and south coast, the island of judge you all of these places become very busy. there's a real concern that we're going to see a lot of clusters in those places unless these restrictions are put in place. so the government is planning this both way. they reckon we'll peach around mid august and that hopefully the numbers will start to drop. the good news is compared to previous waves without seeing the same kind of hospitalizations because the more vulnerable groups are now by and large being the better protected because the vaccinations, the bad news is the prevalence of the delta vary and said they discovered that the new cases that are being found here in sol, the varying accounts for a little more than a quarter of the new cases. bear in mind when they were doing similar tests. a few weeks ago, they were finding very few cases that will of this growth of this barrier has happened very quickly. ok, thanks. so that's rob mcbride in seoul, south korea. now, as for me, might hannah, in washington
d. c. when we say that infections are on the rise in the u. s. might put it into perspective for us and what we had 10 days since july. the 4th, when there was so much positivity about the future. well, come out. yes indeed. the infection rate has now doubled within the last 3 weeks today. there was some 23000 new cases reported as opposed to roughly 11000 on june the 23rd. there are a few reasons for this. firstly, as you heard from rob, the delta barion has created a massive problem with them. the united states, as it has in other countries. but what you've also had in between 2 is the july, the full holiday weekend where they were large numbers of gatherings. so these are coming together to create this as flare up in infection rates within the united states. on the brightest side, perhaps deaths are running at about $250.00
a day. to put this into a context they were running around 3 and a half 1000 a day earlier in the winter. so clearly the vaccination has a massive impact in terms of restricting the number of it, even of those who contract the virus. but what can be problematic to is the discrepancy, the geographical discrepancy within the united states, nationally, some 55 percent of americans have had at least one shot to the vaccine. but then there are a number of states that are very low backs and rates such as mississippi, which is under 40 percent. oh hi. oh, the bother. these are all states where the vaccine rates are incredibly low, and it is no coincidence that the rate of infection is much higher in those states than in others. so this is a major issue within the united states as, as jo, graphical disparity in which a very unlike delta is allowed to take hold in populations that are not properly
vaccinated or not enough people have been vaccinated and that could be spreading further afield. as we saw with the travel that happened over that july, the 4th weekend, the delta various spreading away from those states in which there are lower vaccinations into states with higher vaccination rates. so this is a major issue and something that the health authorities are watching very closely. come on, not even close to being out of the woods. we thank you that might hannah in washington d. c. well speaking, which are locked out in australia's biggest city was due to end on friday. it's now been extended by at least 2 weeks. sydney still struggling to contain an outbreak of that highly contagious delta variant. 97 new cases recorded there in the past 24 hours under restrictions imposed last month. residents are only allowed to leave home for exercise, essential shopping work to iraq with the death toll from a fire that read through a coven, 19 isolation ward. enough,
3 has no reason to 90 to the prime minister is promising accountability, but this is the 2nd time in just 3 months that a fire has torn to a hospital in iraq. i believe i had reports from the 3 year. the angry and in morning iraq, his betty the loved ones. the victims of the fire were mostly receiving treatment for coven 19. at the burned out word, relatives arrived to help search for remains under the debris. they say the lack of safety equipment, an evacuation plan made the disaster worse. how come advised? then? it was at it. this is the result of come up, provide james, if it hadn't been for these young volunteers, him, many more people would have died were holding the government in the health director of the pulpit responsible for this crime. forensic doctors say 5 members of one family are among the victims,
with many of the dead too badly burned to be identifiable by relatives outside the morgue. most of us waited with others hoping for news about his mother. he says he couldn't identify her among other victims. i've been searching for her since yesterday. where shall i go now? when the fire broke out, we tried to break the door down to rescue her and the other patient. but it was too late. according to medical sources, the fire started when an oxygen tank used for treating cool patients. 6 occluded lay mobile materials used in the construction of the walls of this center, including whom help fuel the fire. the victims die from both burns and suffocation. this is the 2nd, the blaze echo 19 unit in an iraqi hospital in 3 months. in april, a fire killed 82 cove with patients at the hospital in baghdad. the health sector
in iraq has been hit by years of case and mismanagement. it seems there is little hope of the situation improving anytime soon and its the patients who are paying the price without the were had al jazeera in maria city, southern iraq. no more than a 160 unmarked graves have been found in the canadian province of british columbia . at the sight of a former school for indigenous children. more than a 1000 of these unmarked graves have been identified across canada and recent months. later discovery made by the penny locker, tribes saving prime minister justin trudeau says his hunt breaks for all indigenous communities across the country. so this is where it was at penny laugh at island, which is in the georgia straight in between vancouver islands and the mainland of british columbia. we spoke to steve, settled about this. he is a freelance journalist. he's a member of the pen like
a trumpet. he also attended the school where these latest graves were found. he said that time changed his life for it was 5 years old. 5 now. so a 5 year old kid. you know, it was a time, much loss of virginity of your family. how can i access my sisters on the other side of the building? is very scary time of the story of loneliness for me and not really understanding why was there, how i would circumstance this building and try to get through day to day. i mean, i can say in mind that it was only one year, but it was a year that changed my life forever. and i'm not the only one in my family. my sister's attended the same school. my late mother did. my aunt,
my uncles are all gone. they all attended school. i think is the term that canada, canada, and other organizations across campus that have been using for the last 5 years. i did, you know, i believe it's something that most person issues with like duty. but to be honest is on the government of canada, there are organizations in provinces, organizations within the province to actually make that move. that's the big question for mr trudeau. you know, it's nice that he goes to house and drops off the teddy bear. but that still doesn't solve well. how did those children end up there? who is responsible? what kind of action are you going to take from the terms from the eyes of justice. you know, is there going to be a special prosecutor assigned to this outside of candidate investigates the government funding. i wanna investigate it as well as the churches we want answers and justice relatives. these little children, brothers, sisters, mom, uncles,
and we have no idea how they ended up there. and this happened in canada is atrocious. in the news ahead, one of the world's richest countries cuts aid to some of the world's poorest people . an emergency crews struggle to contain doesn't defiance burning in the western united states? ah, ah, it's time for the perfect journey to winter sponsored my cattle airways. kyle, i was seen some very nasty weather in 2 central and southern parts of china. originally protected down towards the southwest, this long line, a cloud running all the way down towards the southwest and producing some very heavy rainfall. and in fact, sichuan province. we have seen some flooding,
some flooding further north as well, just pushing up toward the bay province under the 30 millimeters of frame here in 24 hours. and that wet weather will stick across a similar area are actually trying to make its way across the yellow sea. only make you slow progress over the next couple of days i do, it's betsy further flooding. that system just pushes over towards the korean peninsula. crashes. say in some way whether to lingering across parts of japan, sunshine and showers. here there will be some pleasant sunshine, but some heavy downpours usual summer storms just rumbling away in between southern parts of china while she dr. few showers just around hong kong, a few showers to into indo china. really wet weather is just going to be just around the smarter easing over towards borneo over the next couple days. and that could cause some flooding. we have seen flooding recently into northern parts of pakistan. heavy rain coming in here, the south west, the monsoon that producing some big samples is pushed into new delhi heavy south and northern parts of india. i staying very wet across the western gas and central
path sponsor, cut on airways. going to read the conservation part of the book, bringing nature and people together to work with what like my passion, my job is linking between the content. what do you need in the epic and you need to find a job or do we have to teach the community living with one lives? it's excellent. las limbo riding with elliot. my son, bob boy on algebra. me ah ah.
of the are and these are the top story. the death toll from violence triggered by the arrest of former south african president, jacob, soon as risen to 70 to hundreds of people have been arrested in the violence and halted cove in 19 vaccinations. in some area, south korea is reported its highest daily infection comp, since the pandemic began 1600 new cases and on on wednesday, breaking the record which was set just last week. the 19th 2 people are now confirmed dead after monday. fire and a coven. 19 ward. in iraqi city. of now 3 have been protest, demanding accountability. the country's 2nd hospital fire in 3 months. it was vice president, commonly harris was met a group of democrats from the state of texas. they've gone to washington dc, trying to derail a bill, which would make it harder for people to vote in elections by not actually being there in texas for the proceedings. spot of a water issue to do with voting rights in the united states at the moment. and
joining us san scott from washington as john malcolm to talk about the vice president of the institute for the constitutional government and the director of the miss center for legal and judicial studies of the heritage foundation. thank you for your time. president biden was in philadelphia today saying that this was the fights of our time and calling some of the republican lead efforts to change voting rights or voting rules. as on american. you'll take on that. i with all due respect to the president and i recognize most the president. i don't think that is correct. i do not think that there is anything incompatible between passing laws designed to make it harder for people to cheat in elections while still making it easy for people to vote. you began to segment by saying the texts to try to pass laws, making it harder for people to vote. and i think that to miss characterization of what the texas law does, in fact the texas law increases the amount of time for early voting to make it
easier for people to vote. now interestingly, the sound of your own survey, you said you do recognize joe biden as the president, a problem at the moment is that there are a lot of people, mostly republicans who don't. and there is still this theory that somehow donald trump actually won the 2020 election, isn't this just fueling a lot of this problem to do a lot of the discussion and ag really over voting rights in the us? well, it is certainly involved in this debate. i had been concerned about the vulnerabilities in our election system. long before the 2020 election. we have had problems going back to the 2000 a lot of election in which was a big contest between al gore and george bush. there are a lot of volunteer abilities in our election. and i think that there are states that are taking some common sense measures to make sure that people who show up in the polling places are whom they claim to be and are eligible to vote. and all of
this heightened rhetoric about the big lie and about this is jim crow and the 21st century. and us biggest civil rights issue since the civil war, i think is, is a distraction. we should have a serious discussion about voting rights in this country. without a lot of the hyperbole, but you know that high purple is certainly part of these discussions. and i suppose that inevitable. you've pointed out that and using texas is an example that some of the change is being proposed actually make it easier or make boating situations better. democrat who i spoke to off 2 or 3 hours ago and to 0 was actually saying the opposite and talking about things like you know, changes to mail in voting and, and right issues which actually and they say targets black people, minorities poorer people. do you acknowledge any of that?
no, i doubt. i mean, so when these lawsuit filed, one of the problems is that the plaintiffs will claim that people of color can't get an id, a voter idea. they can't get to the polls. but when it comes time to actually finding people who don't have an id and finding people who have difficulty getting to the polls, they don't. so one of the changes, for instance, for texas law is you're saying what if you want to get an absentee ballots. so you don't have to come to a polling place, you have to request one, as opposed to having some election facial using a voter role. many of which are outdated and inaccurate. just sending a lot of ballots out to addresses to have those ballots cast by god knows who. so i do not think it is an onerous condition to make somebody who is not going to show up on a, on election day or early at a polling place. and they have lots of opportunities to do that. if they want to vote absentee to have them actually request an absentee ballot. i do not think
makes it difficult for anybody who wish to devote by an absentee ballot to make it difficult for them to bulk. they can where else should we be watching the focuses on texas at the moment in the fact that those texas democrats have actually left the state to make their points. where else are the other battlegrounds? well, there's a big battle ground going on in congress. so president biden is still trying to pass a bill called the for the people lacking which to my mind as an unprecedented take over by the federal government of elections, which have typically been handled by state and local authorities. and then there was another bill that be considered called the voting rights amendment act, which would basically give the civil rights division of the department of justice control over any states, any states that wants to, in any way, shape or form change its election laws. so there are fights going on in the states . there are fights going on in the halls of congress, and there are fights going on for the hearts and minds of voters for in the states
and who will be voting in 2022. and beyond never seems to end stuff that even in between a fund malcolm, joining us in washington. thank you for your time. my pleasure to cuba, which has restricted access to social media and messaging apps following widespread anti government protests. this is according to a u. k. based monitoring group that media, se one man died during a demonstration in havana on monday 1000 and marched on sunday to protest against the economic crisis. and the government's handling of the pandemic keeper, the berry different country though, that it was even just a few years ago. and its people are better connected to the world. and each other. and she chappelle is more on that protest in cuba have not been seen like this before. and cubans themselves haven't witnessed them in the past because of a lack of internet access. 10 years ago, cuba had one of the lowest internet penetration rates in the world. just 16 percent
of the population was connected, even in cafes, access was too expensive for most people. since then the communist government installed free, why fi hotspots and parks? they expanded 3 g networks and allowed access in homes. now around 70 percent of cubans are in line. more than half the population have a mobile connection and they are active on social media. and they've been quick to make their unhappiness known about the health care system and the lack of medicines . and the slow roll out of code 900 vaccines. the economic crisis, which is considered the worst in decades, is hurting many people. and they're been demonstrations around the country. president miguel diaz canal says the protests have been orchestrated by what he calls the cuban american mafia. he's had government own telecom providers limit access to instagram facebook and telegram, but many say the protests are organic and grassroots, and supported by the huge cuban diaspora community in miami and elsewhere around the world. how the british government has pushed
a plan through parliament to cut foreign aid by $45.00 and a half $1000000.00. this is despite a rebellion by a group of m. p. 's from the ruling conservative party i. minister bars, johnson says the cuts are needed though to recover from the economic impact the pandemic. on reports from london, the under pressure from dissenting m. p. 's in all parties, the government granted parliament to vote on its decision to cut overseas aid to reason. opposition was loudest among its own. with a former prime minister leading the charge, we made a promise to the 4th people in the world. the government is broken that promise. this motion means that promise may be broken for years to come. with deep regret, i will vote against the motion today. a prime minister boris johnson opened the debate saying this was an argument not about principle, but practicality. the foreign aid cup would be temporary. he said just until britain's finance is recovered from the crippling cost of the pandemic. this year,
our national debt is climbing towards 100 percent of g d p. the highest finance 6 decades. the house knows that the government would be compelled to take wrenching decisions and the international development that of 2015 expressly provides the fiscal circumstances allow departure from the point 7 percent target. opponents and rebels within his own party weren't persuaded by the cuts from north point 7 percent of g d p to north point 5 is already in place for this year. that means more than $5000000000.00 lost in funding for life saving projects across the developing world. and at a time when it's never been needed more in parliament, they were predictions that a 100000 people may die as a result with millions more facing malnutrition, the u. k. has until now been one of the world's leading foreign
a donors. the 1st g 7 country to enshrine in law and international commitment to give away note point 7 percent of gross domestic product. that's a distinction. many m. p 's were unwilling to give up. and one, they'll now see as a blow to britain's image, and it's soft power in the world. jonah, how al jazeera london, the years nearly 60 wildfires are burning across at least 10 states in the west. the country. thousands of people had to be moved from their homes as cathy lopez will be on reports. this miles fire season is breaking records in the us. dozens of fires are raging and western states. in california, a states known for its many wild wires more than 3 times more land has burned than the same period and 2020, the fire was moving so fast and so hot it was exploding spot fires ahead of it.
way ahead of it. like a gunshot. this fire near the arizona you tom border is one of the many that's close highways and roads. scientists say severe trouts and the climate crisis are fueling extreme temperatures. the bootleg choir in oregon is the largest blaze, an area twice the size, the city of portland is in flames, and it's disrupting power transmission lines to california. thousands of people across many states have been evacuated. we got out in time. i looked in my rear view mirror and the flames passed over the road and headed down my driveway and burned both sides of my property. in oregon, he related deaths are also on the rise. many have died alone in their homes, with temperatures reaching $46.00 degrees over the last year. we have prepared for a search and just because it could be 19. and a year ago we were just emerging from restrictions and honestly it never crossed my
mind than that we would be a wave of dust from heat as we have these last few weeks. the extreme conditions pose yet another challenge for emergency crews. we have to be very careful about we where we insert cruise to make sure they don't get trapped and with fires burning across several states. concerns are growing as the fire season isn't over yet. katia, low priscilla young. i'll dozier, ah, possibly, our announces the are, these are the headlines, the death toll from violence triggered by the arrest of former south african president, jacob zoom. it has risen to 72, hundreds, have been arrested zoom. his foundation says the violence will stop if he's released.
