8:06 am
well for more we can speak with their correspondent tony chang, who joins us from bangkok. tony, those infection rates look quite significant, almost as if they're running out of control it does appear to be that everything the thai government is doing. you mentioned those lock downs, the fuse, the measures that have been tightened every week. they don't appear to be having any impact. certainly there is more testing going on at the moment. but there are many more people who want to be tested to. and i think the feeling is here, certainly amongst the general public. there is now so much co 19 out there and particularly with the delta very, and that they are very nervous about going. yeah. the government has stopped short of imposing absolute lockdown as it did at the start of the coven, 1900 epidemic pandemic last year. and that may be one of the tools they'll be considering when the code with 1000 response team meets in bangkok later on today.
8:07 am
but they're also juggling a very significant economic problem. we've seen businesses really struggling over the last couple of months. and despite the dangers that many people feel there are still people who are trying to go to work their feeling is that if they don't keep that business is alive, it'll be a significant threat to their livelihood as contracts. and kevin 1900. so the prime minister has been pretty defined so far. he said a couple of days ago in a press conference that this spread was because people were coming out and defying the government's low down orders. he was met with pretty strong opposition. certainly across social media. i think many people feel the responsibility for this is the government store. they didn't log down in april when they had the chance and let this spread out of control. and now there seems to be very little they can do. and tony, the timing of this is also quite important because the king's birth date is fast approaching. are these measures to contain the brake in thailand?
8:08 am
so the, i think it was in back the king's birthday celebrations. absolutely . normally in thailand, on the king's birthday today celebrate his 69th birthday. we would expect to be festivities out. certainly in the royal plaza, outside the grand palace. those have all been cancelled. we saw yes they, there was some festive floral arrangements being put out. it's expected the king will in private go through certain routines as he does every year, like making merit, freeing fish into the river. things that are very customary, but it's also been a very big year for the king in the past 12 months. we've seen protests out on the street criticizing the king in a way that has very rarely happened here in thailand. people i think questioning both the government but also the monic his role and how cruise have been allowed to
8:09 am
happen and how effectively being ruled by qu, government at the moment. that's broken, an awful lot of booze while those protests have died back. certainly in the last 6 months, i think there's a feeling here that one's curve restrictions are lifted, they're definitely going to come back. and those were for those calls for reform of the monarchy and it come back to also the king is to a certain extent involved in the cove at 19 response, one of his companies, sam, bias sons, is responsible for producing astrazeneca vaccine here in tyler, not just here, but for the whole of the se, asia region, it's a company that has no experience in vaccine production and has fallen very far short of the production levels that are needed. so he's also being pulled in to criticism of the curve at 19 response as well. and i think while he's going to be staying in private this year, something he'll be quite glad of. ok, tony chang that lie for us from bangkok. thank you tony. so korea has also reported

monsoon reins and southern bangladesh triggers a landslide at the world's largest refugee camp, killing at least 6 people is home to more than a 1000000 range. refugees from me. and like most of the victims were children i focused on has reopened a major southwest and border crossing with a canister that phone to telephone controlled, focused on the official say they delay more than 100 cargo trucks to zoom at transit, the spin bolduc of border crossing was closed earlier this month after the fighting between afghan security forces and the taliban over control of the boards are well, africa and official said the board would remain open for 6 days a week. meanwhile, the african presidents is set to address the special joint coordination board, a platform co chaired by the government and human representatives,
8:20 am
which reviews development issues in afghanistan or from oscar editor james base is following all this for as in car bu, and joins is now. james base, we understand that donnie is set to speak at a meeting is the un, his government's representatives. so what is he expected to say? well, this is a regular and somewhat boring meeting. normally the joint coordination and monitoring board was set up in 2008. it's a meeting between the afghan government and the international community. on this occasion though, we're hearing it's going to be very important. and the president, god, he's going to be making a very important address. in the next few moments to this meeting, we understand he's going to be unveiling the african government new strategy to counter the taliban. announcing a new military strategy to push back to try and get back those gains that tell
8:21 am
about the clearly made in recent weeks and recent months. now he's not announce the strategy yet, but i have spoken to senior afghan officials. i've been inside the presidential pilots in the last 24 hours. and the strategy i think is this is the strategy of consolidation of their resources, looking at the key strategic areas they need to focus on. and that i think means initially they're going to pull back some of the forces from some of the districts . and it may mean initially the african government officials are telling me that they'll be for the gains for the taliban. but the african government wants to focus on what they think of the key areas and then from there push back and try and retake some of his ground. i think that particularly concerned about the border areas for a landlocked country, not controlling your board is, is very, very serious. it certainly is james. and of course gonna stand is, is no stranger to security challenges, particularly over the last
8:22 am
a few weeks and months. just talk us through the why does security situation in the country right now and how much of an impact the afghan president's new strategy. could have connie now, speaking in the presidential palace to that joint coordination and management board . and i'm sure he will be mentioning the border areas most important of all these borders and i've kind of started last borders around the country. but most important is the place where lots of the trucks come into afghanistan, spin bolduc, and that's a border with pakistan that is now controlled by the taliban. pockets on a fully reopen that border. that means that the taliban now taking all the revenue from the border and the amount of revenue, the government is lost in recent weeks from losing its borders, which all by the ministry of finance is 33 point $5000000.00. if you were able to drive in a front line right now from spin bolduc. busy to kandahar that's about 45 minutes.
8:23 am
the security situation in the 2nd city is really pretty perilous for the government right now that fighting on the edge of the city that's been fresh fighting overnight. hospital officials telling us that overnight 17 civilians have been admitted to hospital injured, including women and children in kandahar for police dead in canada. and clearly the taliban pushing at the edge of kandahar city is also meeting a great deal of displacement and problems for the population that it's worth telling you at this ongoing meeting in the presidential palace. the un special representative. deborah lyons is focused on the humanitarian situation. and she focused on one headline figure, she said, there are now 18000000 people in afghanistan in humanitarian need. that's doubled since this time last year. and it is hope the population of afghanistan and now considered by the us to be in humanitarian need. this country isn't
8:24 am
a very serious situation, that it is james, based from africa surge on his life from couple james, thank the white house is reportedly seeking 1000000000 dollars to help resettle afghan personnel who works with the us military. recent advances by the taliban have triggered growing concerned for their safety. president joe biden has already approved $100000000.00 in emergency funding to evacuate. ask our translators, other personnel, and their families. the state department says an initial group of 2500 people will be brought to a military base in virginia. although visa applications are processed. the 1st are expected to arrive before the end of this month. roughly 20000 defcon says sign up for special immigrants visas, otherwise seen as a former us marine who went to get this done in 2012. he says the african personnel
8:25 am
were crucial to the mission, and the u. s. must ensure their safety. they acted both as linguistic interpreters, but also as a cultural bridge between the u. s. patrols and other countries patrolling and off and on and the local communities that were being patrol. so i would say they were absolutely crucial to, to the mission. i don't think, i don't think a lot of the mission crew gone forward without, without their help in terms of their identity being discovered and their families being targeted. that was a risk that day that they were burdened with that. frankly, us soldiers and marines didn't carry with us. and now that risk is even greater, especially for the former interpreters who live in provincial cities. we have to remember that they don't all live in cobble. they also live in provinces, some of which are under the control of the taliban, or surrounded by the tall about. and so i think the risk is quite immediate. and
8:26 am
every day that they, they're left in afghanistan is like playing russian roulette with their lives. they don't need to be processed in inside afghanistan. in fact, i think it's crucial that they're taken out of august on and preferably placed in u. s. territory but, but at a minimum taken out of afghanistan and processed in an area where, where there, they are safe and i think a u. s. territory is preferred because it's best not to out source, our responsibility to a 3rd country. but in terms of simply getting them out of afghanistan along with their dependence, i think that's very feasible for me. a close ally of pope francis is on trial for alleged financial crimes. angelo bet you along with 9 others is accused of extortion, embezzlement and money laundering under simmons reports now from london on the links the case hugs to the u. k. what has the vatican? the heart of the roman catholic church and chelsea,
