a government that serves the lebanese people. that is what the people of lebanon desperately need. the head of security for haiti's presidential palace has been taken into custody in connection with the assassination of president juvenile. my last week it comes as authorities turned to a group of inside as far as her lopez, haughty and has more investigators in haiti are looking into whether the assassination of president john emily's was an inside job. now, the man in charge of securing the presidential palace dmitri, her art, has been taken into custody for questioning months before the assassination. he reportedly made several visits to columbia. for most of the suspected assassins are from outside to the detention falls. a report from a colombian tv news station claiming that interim president, minister cloud, joseph is the mastermind behind the assassination accusations. the government says
are out right, fly be. and as the most, the form in the national police formerly denies the allegations in which haitian and foreign investigators have supposedly found clues that link interim president claud joseph to the assassination of jovan, out mo, ease. the leading prosecutor says haitians deserve answers about how the group appeared to easily infiltrate the president's residence on july 7th. when it's an embarrassment because to assassinate president at his home, where he lived is just terrible at an international level where talking about murdering a president. it's embarrassing columbia police says it's initial investigation shows. former soldiers were hired to capture the president and hand him over to us drug enforcement authorities. according to the information provided by the
colombians, they plan to arrest the president. and according to them, handy me over to the da you as president, jo, via and says military assistance to haiti will be limited, were only sending american marines to our embassy to make sure that they are secure and nothing is out of whack at all. but the idea of sending american forces into haiti is not on the agenda at this moment. with the investigation now involving several governments. more questions are being raised about who orchestrated the assassination. and why castillo? this was a young elisha 0. can i? this is janice with haiti, liberty newspaper, which has investigated the allegations. he says some of the suspected assassins may have been misled about the mission. while he was in the palace, he was in his residence and they had a security detail of only 3 agents there. i don't think dmitri arrived was among
them. he oversees the whole unit. so he may have had some cahoots in it. they say he made trips to columbia. i haven't confirmed that. but it seems for sure that the actual trigger men were colombians, from what he deliberately learned yesterday from a source who spoke directly to martine movies in, in the hospital in miami. and so we believe that there may have been some sort of help. maybe he got, they got, he provided the layout of the place because clearly they were prepared. they knew where they were going and what they were doing. it was a very well financed operation. according to the washington post report that came out a few hours ago. it seems there were sort of 2 parts of the team, an inner circle in an outer circle, if you wear will. and it seems, a lot of the mercenary may have thought they were in fact body guards and going to
protect this unfortunate do who is being held. i know christian emanuel, i know, and it was a smaller core. it seems. it was 7 soldiers who actually machine gun, the president and his wife. so, you know, it may have been a plot within a plot, so to speak. and even some of the mercenaries were duped in talons posted the record daily high of krona virus infections is concerned over delays in vaccine deliveries. $9600.00 cases were reported last 24 hours. non essential businesses have been closed and movement has been restricted in several provinces since the weekend on thursday afternoon. all right, i asked for an extension on the delivery of 61000000 vaccine doses. not
tony chang joins us live from bangkok. let's begin in thailand. tony, it's no exaggeration say that thailand is actually struggling it's really struggling. i think if you look back 12 months ago, people here were reading stories about cities like new york, where the ambulances were racing through empty streets with people and take recovered 19. now they're saying that here themselves, and it's a real problem, as you mentioned today with another grim records, the time that we've seen that broken several times this week or so the number of daily deaths from cove at 19 that speed increasing. we haven't quite hit the 10000 mark of daily infections that the government thought we will be getting to some states this week, but that is just around the corner. we're at 9600 today. and i think there's also a mounting sense of frustration here with the government. you mentioned that delay
in the delivery of astrazeneca vaccines which have desperately needed here. we've seen that tight government announced this week that they want to promoter a cocktail of different vaccines. that's something the w h o says is not advisable, but tons is very much vague based as the vaccination program on sign evac and astrazeneca. well, the sign of peer is not to be performing very well, particularly with those people who have the delta variance. and i think the government's trying to cover it so by giving people who have had a 1st sign of astrazeneca afterwards. but these are 2 very different vaccines in the medical professions concerned about that. nonetheless, while the government has said it's trying to source other vaccines, they haven't yet arrived and they won't get here until later in the year. and i think that's a real problem. we've also seen bad economic news, economic projections for this year scale back from 3.4 percent,
the growth down to $2.00. and i think that's a reflection that thank this process, which many people thought was going to be easing this year is going on with those lock downs in place. but the restrictions on travel with the tourist spence. no one's coming in to thailand. the economy is not looking good for the foreseeable future. well, let's stay with the region and me. and the next, the general is there seems to be telling the role that everything is a okay, but that's not really the case. is it? it's no, we've heard senior gentlemen on lie who let the crew and for the 1st saying other in the week that there was no problem with oxygen supply, where you just have to look on social media to see q off the q and most most major cities of people coming up with mt oxygen tanks that they desperately need to be filled to take back to family members. and the reason they're doing that is because there are very few medical services. it is
a desperate situation. there's also reports, a people just dropping dead in the streets because the crew is non medical services, the essential medical needs and supplies. they need to know the and the vaccination program has effectively ground to a home. tony cheng, the in buying coat. thank you very much. the philippines is detected 1st locally transmitted case of the delta variance of 19 neighboring countries are seeing a search and infections driven by the move more contagious strain. now on wednesday, the philippines announced a band on travelers from indonesia, which is battling southeast asians worst outbreak. the highest ranking doctor in the us says miss information about vaccines is threatening to threatening if it's the end. the pandemic surgeon general murphy is urging tech companies to help out the white house, those 12 problems. anti vax is responsible for 2 thirds vaccine misinformation on

us chancellor, on gala merkel travel to washington to shore up the us german partnership and chart of course for future relations. i am not. i am very much looking forward to deepening the relations yet again through our talks. and i think we will be able to elaborate more on that as we go on to. merkel did little to hide her opinions of biden's predecessor donald trump. trump accused germany of having open borders, unfair trade practices, and insufficient nato defense spending. so, when bobby took office, he immediately resolved some trade differences. the u. s. c's, germany as an ally for combating global problems like climate change, and emerging from the coven. 19 pandemic. biden was pressed on when he left the band on travelers to the united states from the use shank and region band. it's in process now and i'll be able to answer that question to you within the next several days. what is my could happen?

our conviction. that rush must not be allowed use. energy is a weapon to coerce or threaten its neighbors. i didn't do isn't built. we have different views on what this project entails, but i want to make it very clear. our understanding was that remains that ukraine remains a transit country for natural gas that ukraine has a right like any country territorial sovereignty. the nordstrom to pipeline is almost complete. that's why the white house says it's too late to take punitive action in the form of sanctions against germany. president biden hope waving sanctions will allow for future diplomatic conversations with germany about potential negative impacts the pipeline could create. kimberly help kit al jazeera, the white house more than 60 people have died and dozens of missing in western europe, a severe flooding devastates towns and villages. most of those are killed in germany, which is experiencing its worst weather dissolve in decades,
