4:30 pm
again, the young people themselves also been victim multiple times. my generation can try me design and the shape this generation change on al jazeera, me ah, ah, ah, welcome back here watching on dessert with me to whom the reminder of awful stories, tennessee is biggest political group, be another party at school for dialogue to end the ongoing political crisis, it's a cute president, kind of staging a coo after he dismissed the prime minister and put a freeze on parliament. the 1st person to face trial and the hong kong, the national security law, be found guilty of inciting procession and engaging in terrorism tonguing kit with
4:31 pm
prosecutors for writing his motorcycle into a group of police officers last year. and one person has been killed and others are missing. after an explosion of the germans that he of late accused, and that happens as an industrial park, the chemical company, at least 16 people are injured. it's still clear what caused the blast cases of gro virus have said to a record daily high in the hospital of the olympics, they've been almost 3000 new infections in japan's capital. tokyo protests have been held against the games with concerns to become a super spreader event. prime minister, you, she, this to go says he's not worried about the games, but as edge people to watch them from home. push as you do another day. under the circumstance, we again would like all our japanese citizens to avoid non essential and non urgent outings and watch the olympics and paralympics on tv models hanging up
4:32 pm
due to the limitation of vehicles remote working and all the efforts, bio citizen. the movement of people is decreasing, so we are not worried. well, but for some japanese citizens are concerned remains about the effect the games may be having on the number of new cases. my mother has him out of before the olympics began with 600 to 7 people a day and certainly it's double 4 times that i wondered the numbers were made lower . i also wonder if it's because of the increasing foreigners to have such worries already picked them up. i'm supporting the pics. i used to do sports too, so i really do support it. but when it's this kind of situation, it's natural that people wonder whether it's okay to hold the olympics in the weeks as a professor of political science was. as you know, university intake enjoys me now from there via scott, good talking with his professor on al jazeera. at the end of the day, the perception of whether the olympics did or didn't go ahead would have to be laid
4:33 pm
at the feet of the prime minister after the event has happened. while the i o c decide the fate of the olympics, the government are responsible ready for the health of a nation and its visitors. yes, that's true and certainly promised to submit has made that his main claim throughout the time when we're talking about holding the big so not holding picks. and he did say his role is to ensure you know, that the health and safety all of the people. and i guess today there's one example is a big chest with 2800 cases. people are now concerned about those in detail, but how much political pressure is that on the government to the name and sort of to secure successful games without being sort of vilified full helping to perhaps invent a new super spread or event. that's the very difficult position. i think that all
4:34 pm
of us here in tokyo, in particular, funding ourselves in on the one hand, the olympics here, they going ahead, we sort of see them who because we're not, let's go out. we're not led to participate. and on the other hand, we're going to go home and saying, look, it's okay, it's okay, we can continue and the olympics can happen, there will be st. pete. but underlying that, i don't think we're terribly convinced on the government's assertions, in that, in that respect, the japanese are generally a very polite, quiet society in the public domain. but we're now seeing japanese olympic committee members and former olympians like younger gucci saying things like the get you know, the damned if they did or damned if they didn't host these games. you know, we were cornered is another phrase that's being used when the anger comes from former elim pins. perhaps the only reflects what the public really think behind the scenes, but a far too polite, perhaps to say it out loud. yes, but you know,
4:35 pm
this time around we've had lots of people out on the streets, protesting outside the hotel with thomas bob has been staying we had on friday, not with the opening ceremony, even though we were all supposed to be at home watching quite a few people quite a few 1000 people in the streets around the stadium they purchased as well. and indeed, the purchase, continuing it at various venues throughout the dames. and there's just that, you know, as, as you suggest that, you know, the athletes formerly saying they don't do damned if they don't. and it's trying to strike that balance on kind of building to, you know, the, the academic and me says, we really shouldn't be having these as a form of supporting that we sit and watch the results. i'm afraid and kind of very awkward thing really, you know, i mean,
4:36 pm
when i'm setting i'm and i have many of my colleagues are out there and her also watching the event quite happily at home. i also appreciating the, the problems that this is creating, the tokyo, though they had the medical advice in the weeks leading up to the gains to be cautious about the games worrying about sort of view and audience participation at any of the venues. it seems, or does it seem that the politicians have ignored it? i mean, we're seeing even the general conversation about co vate, in other countries, when medical professionals say, don't do this, don't do that. the politicians seem to try and dodged a bullet, so to speak. yes, i think if we didn't have the olympics here in cherokee we'd probably be having a similar conversations. i think the fact that the olympics that was being held now would you to know the year is that that extra layer
4:37 pm
a whole just help competition should he should be responding to the medical advance, which is of course, always along the way being good. we should prioritize people's health and the overriding pressure that i think we're dealing to from the international olympic committee that you know, the games must go ahead and the idea is, i guess the international committee has the athletes. them compete and be in their bubble. and the rest of us here in tokyo, as long as we stay home and watch television movie and l bubble and, you know, hopefully the bubbles one kind of question see how that bubble as best at the olympic village. but i'm sure that debate will continue to rage for the days ahead for the moment professor dollar weeks. thanks so much for joining us from tokyo. thank you. my pleasure. now the select committee is holding it says public hearing
4:38 pm
into january's attack on the capital building. the panel will 1st hear from for police officers will testify on the verbal and physical abuse that they suffered during the insurrection. the committee was set up by the house speaker, nancy pelosi, after efforts for a bipartisan commission failed for president. donald trump, who is accused, been citing the riotous, remain suspended from major social media platforms. $200.00 is that capitol hill and it's following event for us. so john, just talk us through the choreography of what's going to happen. well, this wasn't the forum that either side one, and you mentioned that one democrats originally wanted was an independent commission. that would report back to congress along the lines of what happened after that $911.00 commission formed that didn't work because republicans opposed it in. so democrats came up with this process and it's been complex. but what's happening right now is the chairman of that committee of any thompson is offering
4:39 pm
his opening statement after that in an unusual move. liz cheney, one of the 2 republicans on this select committee, will offer her own statements. she has been a staunch critic of the january 6 insurrection, and then after that we will have 4 police officers who will talk from their perspective about the, the physical and mental abuse that they suffered. and their fellow officers suffered on that day. we expect in the last about 2 or 3 hours and then each member of that committee will have about 10 minutes to question. each of the officers democrats are going to be pressing for specific information. they say they have new never before seen video that is graphic and uncensored, that they will be showing about the insurrection. and they will largely be supported. it appears by the 2 republicans on that committee. that is, liz cheney and adam kinsey, owner of illinois. both of whom has broken ranks with their party who have
4:40 pm
basically tried to make this process go away. they haven't succeeded, but now what they're doing is trying to make it look like a partisan process. of course, the republicans are attacking the legitimacy of this committee, knowing that they have, you might say to members of the party already on the committee. what's the strategy here? it's the house republican leader spoke this morning, kevin mccarthy. and he said this is a sham process. a process in which only democrats will be able to ask questions along with 2 republicans that he is insulting, calling them pelosi republican, the reference to the house democratic leader, nancy pelosi. what actually happened is that the republican leader appointed a couple of republicans to this committee. they were both staunch deniers of the insurrection. both people who had voted against approving the election of joe biden in congress and policy rejected those 2 as
4:41 pm
a result. what she's gone on that commission is to republicans who have been largely critical of the insurrection of broken ranks with their party. but the republicans are trying to essentially make this process go away. they're, they're criticizing it as is a sham process as an illegitimate process. what democrats hope happens here is that the facts speak for themselves and that's why they've got for police officers. republicans are generally supportive of the police, and the criticism here is that they have not been in the case of this insurrection, essentially denying it. so we expect to hear more from those police officers and the democrats will trying to use that to come up with the criticism of the various republicans, but especially including the former president, donald trump. what we should see, what happens through the day for the moment, engine therefore, is that capitol hill? thank you. lanka has paid back a $1000000000.00 international loan ahead of
4:42 pm
a tuesday deadline, avoiding default on its foreign debt. its economy was already struggling before the pandemic, but looked on measures and border closures have caused the vital tourism industry to collapse. manella fernandez has more sent me the wholesale commodity trader a job he has done for more than 40 years. but today he's struggling as a result of the countries for in current the crisis reserves have fall into $3000000000.00 that we're seeing for the last couple of months is the ban. unfortunately, this is today. we don't have dollars. so sometimes they don't do it. even a did so they say, okay, we have it listed, set up name for the food items from about 20 countries. he's worried the delays will affect his business as he can pay supplies on time. that seems inevitable. analysts say reserves are heading to just 6 weeks of input by the year end, which will be a critical phase for sri lanka, one and only so large a 0 that
4:43 pm
a 3 pronged approach is vital, even at this late stage of full analysis of incoming and outgoing reserves, a proper estimate of how long she lanka can manage with the reserves and the plan to make sure the country can feed that problem we have today begins by the loss of confidence and trust of international financial markets of sri lanka, i be digital, repay which is why we can't refinance the money, be settling by borrowing a little more, which is what we did in the past. the government is dismiss concerns about the state of the economy, saying it's got things under control and he's working according to a plan that has the national interest at heart policy that we have adopted is that we don't want to add to the debt. that's why we're looking at non data influence, and we have c, d. c attempted to increase. we have ensured that the residences can be continued.
4:44 pm
and then certain imports are reduced, asked if the government would go to the international monetary fund for bailout cub, said no. emily said the government is like an ostrich with its head in the sand, ignoring the di konami position felucca has fallen into this issue. makers say they have things under control. millions of london are desperately hoping. that's true. fernandez, just colombo, the united kingdom is carrying out his most extensive naval deployment and generation, the aircraft carrier, h m, as queen elizabeth as being accompanied by a la tiller of navy ships. and his presence is disputed. it is being disputed in parts of the south china sea and it's causing concern for its living reports. me the british navy, biggest and most powerful war ship. the h m, as queen elizabeth aircraft, carrier is leading of the tiller of navy ships on its maiden deployment. the
4:45 pm
largest concentration of british and maritime power in years. prime minister boys, johnson says that deployment will help to strengthen british soft power, such as belief in democracy. and the rule of law. analysts say, joe politics is at play. it's also doing it because their attention is over taiwan and britain like the you and other major powers have an interest in not seeing that become an armed conflict. and so they have to demonstrate that their country is willing to stand up against the use of force against it. and i also feel it says that early signals of the biden administration, the britain is a player, an ally, no longer trapped in europe, but able to act independently. the tiller is expected to sail through the south china sea. a large part of which china has laid claim to part of its mission is to
4:46 pm
demonstrate freedom of navigation in the south china. the chinese government sees this as a provocation. in recent years, it has increased its military spending and grown more assertive in its claims over the south china sea. i mentioned already high them since 2015 when china begin island building activities in the south trying to see what i'm worried now is that we've the collection of so many military s as in this region. that's going to be the higher chance of miscalculation the u. haul recently announced it were permanently deployed to war ships in asian waters after the so tell us have to japan in september. the deployment is part of the british government tilt towards the endo pacific, much like the u. s. pivot to asia and the former us president brock obama. it's his in part a response to china's growing influence. and that's makes the south china sea more

4:50 pm
and became interesting for further studies. this is the newest part of a growing world heritage site without borders last extended in 2017 to encompass $78.00 primeval beach forest across a dozen countries, rare areas on the content, almost unaltered by humans. however, unesco status does not always offer the protection it deserves in poland, protected trees under continuous threat from illegal logging in an area so vast. it's almost impossible to police. in yan forest, scientists have discovered an ecosystem almost untouched, rich and flora, and fauna, or below sphere. the members from the plant world we have protected species. lillian mart gone from the animal world, also protected warily, and bears which are protected from hunting in the nearby town of pover. their hopes, the new forest status will help attract more tourists. which number only 20 last
4:51 pm

4:52 pm
by the russian olympic committee. it's their 1st school metal in the event since 1992. let's get the latest from andy richardson who is live for us from a tokyo. and andy, what more can you tell us about simone biles pulling out yeah, i think it's important at this stage to, to stick with what we do, you know, then speculate about what may have happened. we've got a statement from yours to nasty saying my boss is withdrawn from the same final competition due to a medical issue. she will be assessed daily to determine medical clearance for future competitions. i'm, as you mentioned she, she took part in one discipline in the final, the volts, recorded her lowest ever school in her olympic career. left the arena with the same doctor. she did return later on to support that saying they went on when that silver metal. now when the building this final things haven't gone absolutely
4:53 pm
perfectly for bile, she's made some uncharacteristic mistakes during qualifying she posted on instagram in the build up to this final that i truly do feel like i have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times so which expectation for biles coming in to these olympics? but it's just remember why we talk about a so much she's a 19 time world champion, no female gymnast as ever. one more than the for a limpy gold medal. she won in re our 2016. so even if she never competes again, she's already one of the all time greats of her sport. she's due to compete for 5 more metals in tokyo on thursday, she set to go in the individual all round event. but of course that was all now depends on if she's fit to go ahead and compete on thursday. okay. and now earlier in the day naomi osaka went out of the tennis and she was considered to be one of the faces of these games. how big of a blow has this been for olympic organizers?
4:54 pm
yeah, of course. i mean, not may suck is all going to the biggest sport style here in japan. she. she let the olympic holden at the opening ceremony. but she has self about a couple of months out of tennis, should withdrawn from friend sharpen and from wimbledon sites in united, mental and physical pressures of being in the top of a game for so long story, perhaps a little bit unrealistic to think she would just come straight back into the top level competition and win the gold medal. as for japan, generally though it's going well, they've $19.00 elliptical metals. so $416.00 is the record that got passed and in the last few minutes they've won the so full final against the united states. so by and large home support seeing a lot of success from japanese athletes. alright, andy richardson, reporting live from take care talk to you soon. tropical storm that has caused some olympic events to be postponed,
