12:31 am
a security reasons. all 3 of the countries study 4 provinces will be subject to the new restrictions. fighting has started again after a quiet few days over them with the holidays. the de la la, the army is trying to hold to taliban yvonne's, which has seen the group, make large territorial gains out diplomatic as a james based on this update from combo earlier. there's serious concern about the situation from africa officials. they have a regular morning security meeting in cobble with senior cabinet ministers and senior general. that's normally chad by the vice president. but it has now been chaired by president ashe rough, gaudy and immediately following that meeting. the interior ministry as issued an important announcement saying that in many parts of africa, stone, that is going to be a night time curfew put into place from 10 pm until 4 am, which is the time of 1st pres the curfew will take place in $31.00 out of $34.00
12:32 am
provinces, so the majority of afghanistan, but it will not take place in 3 large population centers. they are cobble the capital and the province around this 9 got ha, province to the east with a capital july le, bad. and also in punch year, which is a province just to the north of cobbled bay for now will be exempt from this night time curfew. the reason for the curfews not being given other than it's for security reasons, but it's been clear for many years that in contested parts of africa. storm. the government may control things during the day. but the taliban very much own the night. met matter on as women's rights activists and co founder of the feminine perspectives campaign. i talked to earlier and she said that even though the taliban is control of many rural areas, there is a growing sense of fear and panic. in the big cities. they have an every single in
12:33 am
their comply and now they have limited woman's freedom of movement, which eventually means woman cannot work. woman cannot go to school at the same time. there are some news that they have. they have not allowed to have julio pre enjoyed the freedom speech they used to have. and then they were saying because they don't have a system of a proper government, for example, to supply the food to the soldiers to. c any of the company now if you can provide food for you to feel this will be even if they have food to provide it for them or not, they have to yes, may be a piece, but the thing is people don't enjoy anything, right? so tell me, what are the, what are the implications of the taliban territorial gains in areas beyond their
12:34 am
traditional southern strongholds now pushing into the north and other parts of the country. what does that mean for the peace talks which of already been stalled and deadlocked? obviously they will use this is rich to claim that the controlling more now and they should have a saying what government should be monday. but the problem is not controlling any of the big. they're not providing any services and controlling. yes, they will leverages under both. but the question is can respond to that, give that governments i, i don't think so efficiently in for them, but i come from by the province and from there i know exact they call and this 3 they are compelling. now they didn't fight for
12:35 am
that. government just be treated and then not done money call members and we truly deliver good. but hopefully government can kind of when we hear the situation can't be resolved on the battlefield. it will have to be through negotiations. the afghan peace prize ultimately has to resolve how power is going to be shared in the country. what happens to democratic institutions, the constitution? how will the rights of minorities and especially women be protected is, i mean, is that possible under the success of governance that the taliban wants to establish? honestly, not if we look at their government
12:36 am
$996.01 keeps telling that. a they will, the woman died within the set of if on one moment government, but they have to provide new details about the government. they want how they want to allow, you know, freedom of speech. how do you want to know? my son has not given any medicines that they have, but then if you see that they have the they have control so far you are, they are controlling no, they haven't changed at all. they have, they are not respecting and need the mac crossteck values there of, or you don't see a single girl graduated from any of the villages there are controlling they have been controlling, at least for the past years. so that's, that's the fear. well, now we go to guatemala because the top anti corruption prosecutor has fled the
12:37 am
country fearing for safety. one francisco sandeval at the special prosecutor's office against impunity, but was controversially fired on friday. the government accused him of constant abuses, but his removal has been condemned by the united states. he helped bring down from a president auto perez molina and was investigating people close to the current $200.00 g m. i ty, he's reportedly he, he's reported to have escaped to neighboring el salvador will edgar or tease as the director of legal research or the libertine development foundation. join me live now from guatemala city. can i start by asking if there's been much of a reaction there amongst the general public, tucson to vowels? removal from his post and the fact that he fled the country with an hours of it happening well. many what amounts are highly disappointed by these decision procedures on the why that was the most visible phase of the fight against
12:38 am
corruption apply that was undermined. in the last 2 years, we used to have a united nation back commission by the haven't corruption. and 2nd to some the one was, as i mentioned before, the, the main contributor to the commission and to the fight against corruption. so the general public is pretty much disappointed and that to the government is he now the 5th official is to be in a space of a couple of years to be in this situation. he's obviously faring for his own safety . but in fact, he was the fact that he was fired from his job. i mean, how much of a blow is this to anti corruption efforts in the country? it is a huge backlash against corruption. i mean, you know, public service and that's the country to last years. i mean, the former attorney general fled the country in 2019. i mean we are speaking
12:39 am
a highly high, high profile public servant and another 3 per sectors of the same brand government . while the country other percentages where, you know, also investigating good corruption structures. and there was a relationship between corruption, drug dealing and organized crime. and they, the cases that they should have read, it's very powerful people and that explains what is happening to on the while now. and i guess given reason developments, they'll be able to function with impunity. absolutely. now they have the, you know, this is the like, the, like the master plan executed. they were trying to remove the particulars off you, you know, while you need was created by, by this commission, would come into the permission of the united nations. and you know that that unit
12:40 am
was facing a lot of challenges, even legal challenges, some lawyers try to blocks and to, to declare illegal the special unit for investigating corruption. and now that time, the while the south, you know, all the bad guys are celebrating us, vice president come on hires with only recently in boston, modern, you know, from, from the u. s. perspective. they see it as being in the interest to try and address some of the root causes of political and economic problems to try and stem some of the underlying causes of migration from central america going to the u. s. what, how do you see the role of the us new international community in this? how can they support guatemala? i mean, the us is very important for us is one of our main life. and they have the picture very clear. you know, they made public statements clearly support in the conference calls and the wireless work. the thing is, i think the us lack enough tools to do to make
12:41 am
a difference. we know pretty pretty well that they support his work and they are against invitation. but they are, they are weak, they only made public statement, but maybe they haven't, we have another strong tools that we can to make a difference. so i'm afraid this is going to be a very sad time for us, but they can do anything suddenly well and go ortiz, i appreciate you taking the time to speak to us on the news. our journey is that from guatemala, says he, thanks again. i pleasure. now want to town to some what's been happening in turkey because the defense ministry very saying that 2 soldiers have been killed and to have been wounded and an attack which took place on a vehicle in this area. in northern syria, in bob and ministry, said turkish forces immediately fired back as go straight to rest. so started his
12:42 am
life 1st and stumble. any more details on the circumstances surrounding this attack? well, mary, i'm the touch minister of defense. i just confirmed to turkish soldiers had been killed and to seriously wounded. the also, the minister says that immediately after the attack they brought the y p g p, k, k c and also y p g under attacks. and that target have been successfully. she had so far, so there are several of the turkish military post crows scattered across east and north on april. and from many of these various positions, the turkish army has retaliated white peasy, possess steel. the that text continues. seems that there's, there's also going to continue to denied. and so turkey has cleared these areas in 2016 from isis,
12:43 am
which was the 1st major turkish military incursion into syria. and since then, several times, turkish military posts had been targeted by d. k. c. it offered y p g. so these region, the region that to the y p g a test from is also on the call to last russia and the city and government. so in that sense, we can see that way p g in this position has protected by the feet in government and russia as well. but the turkish defense ministry statement did not mention russia at all, because it's afraid that any, any escalation between turkey and russia could affect the deli construction individuals. it live where 4500000 people are leaving there any escalation. could 3 get a new way for refugees to over turkey, which the company is already hosting more than 4000000 refugees in that sense. so also an interesting point, miriam, is that the to these attacks?
12:44 am
how being carried by them? 80 gm and anti tank guided me styles with many of the extra believe that is 80. jim's been provided to white p g by the usa and the turkish. this us, the continued support to white piece has been one of the main reasons for the friction between the usa and the turkey as well. so in that sense, turkey is managing a very much delicate balance because white p, jeez, enjoying the support from both russia and the usa and turkey regarding these 2 companies as allies. so prison on july to t is going to with it likely with more school. and it seems that this issue is going to be one of the main topic on the agenda, the meeting between present one and russia president that i didn't put him. all right, thank you are so said are there and it's tumble with that. now in all the news falling lebanon's government has struck a deal to import a rocky oil,
12:45 am
even though it has practically no money to pay for it. instead, it will get what the energy minister claim was up to $400000000.00 was by bartering goods and services. countries in the throes of an economic collapse with frequent paralyzing power cars. the rocky oil can't be used in power plants and will instead be solar. it will be essentially sold for usable fuel, the 4 months supply will cost $11.00 and a year of goods and services, so that around half of the lebanese people are living the nice, the poverty line of the coast of san a goal is the world's largest cold water reef home to countless rare and endangered species. but it's under threat with girlfriends and titles washing up dead on what once prestige beaches. and as nicholas hoc reports from the fishing town of k r. there are arguments over who's most to blame. deep in senegal is territorial waters, 500 meters below sea level are creatures that humans have not yet encountered. it
12:46 am
is a canyon as long as the great wall of china, 400 kilometers and 100 meters high. this is the world's largest cold water reef. home to oysters, that are 30 centimeters long and 500 years old. here are the court of orange reef each fish and endangered charged meat. it is at the edge of this precious ecosystem until now, undisturbed by human interaction that while te, national companies are preparing to extract billions of barrels of oil in a trillion cubic feet of gas. since the drilling began, endangered dolphins, turtles, and other sea life have washed up on the shore. fishermen by beer on fall has never seen anything like it and says it is a bad omen. also if i feel pain and sadness, they like us. they like human beings. these are noble animals, the guide us when we go fishing while they lead other fish that their death is a bad sign. clinicals ministry fishing says oil and gas companies are not to blame
12:47 am
it. think a technique using dynamite to fish may be responsible for the death. while it is illegal, fishermen, i'm a watch shows. it's on how it's done. the device does not detonate in front of our camera. he says he doesn't want to be seen breaking the law. i've given you a leg up and if you're caught, you're in trouble and i covered the devices with type so it stays dry. otherwise it won't light up. when it's held tight, it's like throwing a small bomb in the water. the fishing ministry says the sound of the explosion alone is enough to kill animals. and it's the worst type of fishing because it destroys the environment. and what's already a fragile ecosystem. scientists believe oxygen level in the ocean or dropping due to human pollution. this too may be causing female to suffocate in the water. this used to be a prestige beach where people used to come in swim the ocean abundance with fish.
12:48 am
look at it now. it's, well, it's like a dumb site, was the government installed electricity and the internet for communities living by the sea. there's no infrastructure to deal with the human waste and toxic chemicals there are being thrown into the ocean. but environmentalists say this is just the tip of the iceberg, because out of sight, hundreds of nautical miles away is environmental pollution of far greater magnitude . chinese and european deep sea trawlers scraped the ocean floor with giant nets. in a matter of minutes, they kill and destroy everything in their path, including coral reefs. scientists predict that within a decade, ocean ecosystems will collapse because of a combination of rising temperatures, over fishing, and human pollution. with it will disappear the opportunity for humans to encounter new species of life. because for them,
