the tokyo, when picks off finally decide growing opposition by running costs in japan. thousands of athletes will compete in empty stadium amid the corona virus out there will be inside the bubble to bring them native games like no other. ah, the 2020 took your summer olympics begin with a scale down opening ceremony in a nearly empty stadium. the world's number to tennis, don amier, and lit the limpid, colder inefficiently. solving the game. ah, i live again. i cannot santa maria here in don't with the world news for mountain
europe. the funeral of hated assassinated president jovan illinois is interrupted by police firing tear gas protested and foreign dignitaries scrambling for cover also fighting with the town about beyond group wounds. there will be no peace and i've got to start until certain conditions are met. the rescue work continues in central china after the work plugs in living memory despite hundreds of thousands of people i after a years delay the tokyo 2020 summer olympics are officially open in 2021. the games happening is the nation battles, the deadly wave of the corona virus pandemic. the there was still spectacular despite the fireworks, though at the event which wrapped up just about an hour ago at japan's national
stadium. the president of tokyo, 2022nd. has your moto says she hopes the olympics will offer a moment of peace for people whose lives are far from peaceful me at this moment? tennis star, naomi, i saw a lighting deal in big cauldron. one of the more than $11000.00 athletes from $200.00 nations who be competing without spectators under unprecedented restriction stadium. a really very different thing to what we're used to. the $68000.00 seats that the venue were mostly empty, only around a 1000 people attended. most of the teams were mosque that they came out to represent the countries. the team sizes for that ceremony also looked a lot smaller than usual with social distance and clearly in place as well. some of the performances took on a rather somber symbolic tone alone run a here in the stadium on a treadmill. an apparent nod to the difficulties athletes must have faced as they trained in isolation and quarantine to prepare for the competition the most expensive summer lympics in history. and they are deeply unpopular among the people
of the host nation, nearly 80 percent of japanese say they are against holding the gains. because the pandemic purchase has rallied near the venue to voice their opposition to the games opponents. and it shouldn't be going ahead. while current of ours remained the threat more than a 100 people attending the games have tested positive cove at $900.00 in the run up to d events. let's wrap this all together with andy richardson in tokyo. but at least we now know why no, i me, i suckers 1st tennis. much of these olympics was pushed back from saturday to sunday. the japanese stall, given the honor of lighting, the olympic colder and to get these tokyo games underway during the opening ceremony. we also heard from the international olympic committee president thomas back, he said, amongst other things, this feeling of togetherness, this is the light at the end of the dark tunnel of this pandemic has to be said. that sense that may not be shared entirely by the rest of the japanese population who perhaps remain to be convinced about the wisdom of these games going ahead. the athletes parade, while it was scaled down socially distanced,
somewhat subdued. several athletes from the countries of kurdistan. pakistan and said jacob on entering the stadium without wearing a facial mask, clear contravention of the strict rules and regulations of these games athlete were warned that if they didn't follow all the safety protocols, they could risk being kicked out of these a lympics. as for the ceremony itself, well opening ceremonies like them, a load them have always been a part of the games ever since. they came back in 1896, a chance for the whole nation to showcase all of that culture national identity, but rarely as a whole. nation had such itself balancing act. so pull off like tokyo has to try and get public opinions to turn and shift in favor of these olympics on to other news and the funeral of haiti's assassinated president jovan ways is taking place in the country's 2nd city of compassion where he has been laid to rest in the grounds of his family home, outside the police or 5 t, a gas that protested us delegation and other dignitaries,
the scene rushing to the cars. weeds of course, shot dead on july 7th. the police say his killers included 18 former columbia intelligence. and several haitian americans posing as us drugs enforcement agents hated, experienced mass protests and political crisis for more than 2 years now. and the kalika following developments from miami, tell us about these, the most recent events, the t a gas and dignitaries is running for cover. well, that's what's being reported. come all outside of where the funeral services are being held. and it really goes to show how many hope this might be a moment of unity. a moment to coalesce thing behind the death of a president. but really there are deep suspicions in this nation, especially in k patient. where people know, for instance, the chief of police who is attending the funeral, they have answers, he hasn't answered yet. he may, he may have something to do with it. that is,
that is the feeling that many people and k patient saying, look, we gave you a president and you gave us a dead body. so that really goes to the heart of the divisions in this nation. there are many suspicions about what happened and still no answer as essentially the investigation is still ongoing. it's getting some aid from an international team from the united states, with officers from the department of homeland security and the f b i. but we still don't know who as the haitian authorities, cole is the mastermind behind this. so even as this solemn ceremony goes on, the street protests are continuing, and this is an extremely precarious moment for this nation. because while many people are mourning the death and the fascination of that president, more than anything else that concerned about the security and future of their own country. and he can you remind us who is actually in charge of ac at the moment? what remains of the government is now being run by prime minister ariel on re who
was backed by a coal group of international countries, including the united states, the canada, and the your opinion. but that's problematic in and of itself. because many haitians don't want any international interference, so this prime minister may be seen as a puppet of international forces. but his goal, really, and this is extremely important, is to get to free and fair elections. they haven't been held in in over 4 years. they've been so problematic with medications, they look voting is not going to solve our nation's problem. the senate is barely functioning, the parliament has already been dissolved. a gangs are running the streets report prints in many areas. so voting might not change any of that. but i think what the international community wanted to see was a coalescing behind one central figure in arial and re whose sole purpose now is to get to those elections, which may not solve the long term problems. this beleaguered nation is facing. absolutely precarious, isn't it?
thank you for that update. and d, danica for us in miami, a member of the taliban negotiating team says there won't be a lasting peace and i've got to found until a new government installed and cobble that all sides agree on taliban fighters have been saving many areas as the last of the u. s. and nato forces leave afghanistan. so hail shaheen says the taliban doesn't want to monopolize power, but the current government can expect things to continue with diplomatic a to, to james phase with more from cobble certainly what everyone wants, i think on the international community is some way to have a negotiated settlement between the african government and the taliban some way of sharing power. and what they'd like is to restart those talks that have been taking place in doha currently adjourned. great deal of effort to try and get that back on track and get that going. there has been a meeting recently with the deputy heads of the taliban political office in doha.
of those alarm a happy and representatives of diplomats from the e u u. s u n. and cath, many of those diplomats in addition to getting the talk started, think that the best atmosphere for the talks is to have a cease far the tongue about reluctant to have a c spot. at this stage, they say the proposals that the african government have put on the table so far are unacceptable. they want not want reconciliation, but they won't start entering that they won't come come n harbor c spied and we will continue our waterman as it is. so that's the also not realistic approach not to pragmatic approach. it is necessity that all avalon should have are, should eagerly upon i knew god meant. and that was meant
what to replace the new this couple administration. and that was meant will be acceptable for us. and to add that up months, another taliban spokesman later clarified those comments, making it clear that the taliban is not demanding. the president, national ref gone, is removed or stands down before a ceasefire. that's not one of the conditions that demanding before a cease for al jazeera understands what taliban wants. in order to have a cease far for them to a greek, to a c swap would be for all the prisoners being held by the african government to be released and that will be difficult. moved by president gun, he got a lot of christmas last time. he released prisoners and also for all of those taliban members that are listed by the un under the sanctions committee to be de listed us secretary state antony blinking has met iraq's foreign minister in washington topping the agenda. the potential withdrawal of combat troops by the end

in you in iraq, but they're not always supporting the mission in iraq. they're also supporting the $900.00 or so troops, a us troops that are in syria. so we are respect that mission is going to change very much. this is being seen widely as a political move to try and help the iraqi prime minister in the run up to the next election. she's been paying has visited tibet, the 1st visit to the region by a chinese president in 3 decades. he inspected a train line under construction and met buddhist monks as in other regions, waging his stepped up its controls on religion and education into best exile to tibetans accused the central government of religious and cultural repression. international body of a thing to pay, steal. it ended the both in the, in conflict to the 1990 s. as now banned the denial of genocide. both me and serv. officials have refused to accept that the massacre of more than 8000. but the intrepid pizza was, in fact a genocide. but genocide deny as will now face up to 5 years in prison. the new law
