8:08 pm
a change, he should allow the media to function. he should allow independent weiss's to be heard. otherwise he'll be denying to nations the right information. and at this stage, it's really crucial for them when the country is going through a turmoil to get reliable, unbiased, and independent information from the media. we do need independent media into nisha at this moment and we need the support of the international community and pressure on the government to stop harassing the media. allow me to organizations like alters, you know, which are highly refuted. and i've done wonderful studies from different parts of the world, including to nice to function and get the news to the people. because people sometimes do not rely on information that comes from the national media because they feel it's biased. therefore, they look for and by sources like i'll read up and also as the most prominent channel in out of the in the region, it should be allowed to function. they should immediately lift the blockade against

8:13 pm
a golf for the concern because the government said that it does not have the luxury of exercising the option of loading down in diet date and therefore it is something that is a measure of concern. we've also heard that back in june. they were less than 2020 later renewed. but right now that would 3000 patients on renter later. and now the government saying that they would have 1000000 jobs far day. now earlier there were the larger reservation as far as many people were concerned. but because now the government has and now and restrictions after august, the 31st people, anybody always will not be able to fly on the national carrier or any airline. also, hotels, off the law enforcement agencies. it will be mandatory for everybody to obtain a certificate and to have that back to the nation. israel will be the world's 1st

8:18 pm
it's important to remember why we went to afghanistan in the 1st place. we were attacked on 911. we were determined to bring to justice. those who attacked us and to make sure to the best of our ability that that couldn't happen again. and we've largely succeeded in accomplishing those directors are solid and latin was brought to justice 10 years ago. and al qaeda in terms of its abilities to attack us, or anyone else from afghanistan has been vastly diminished and we will keep a very close eye on it to make sure that it doesn't reemerge. and if it does, we will do what's necessary to prevent it from attacking us or from attacking anyone else. we were there for 20 years, a trillion dollars more than $4500.00 americans lost their lives and it is time for afghanistan to shape its own future. having said that, even as we're withdrawing our military forces, we remain very much engaged in afghan. instead, with a strong embassy with support for afghanistan's economy, humanitarian support,
8:19 pm
development, support support for security forces, as well as very active diplomatic engagement to try to bring into the conflict at the negotiating table with the taliban. and with the afghan government, there is no military solution to the conflict. now, if an afghanistan emerges, that does not respect the basic rights of its people that abuses the rights of women girls that does not respect the basic gains of the last 20 years. that afghanistan will be a pariah in the international community. at least 9 people as dead as the battle intensifies themselves in syria. government forces have surrounded a neighbourhood and devil which has been besieged for more than a month. it's home 240000. people have been cut off from food and medicine, wash and back to government troops, one opposition fighters to surrender their weapons. and it all meant re, checkpoints to be set up, has an update from crystal soda and it's tumble and neighboring turkey. now just early in the morning, we have seen that the student government have initiated
8:20 pm
a massive military operation on the toner of that which is a part of the greater district. and so far, the reports of the casualties are just coming where one to be the place that is that way, the more to shutting from the regime is confirmed. and 9 of the region, 14 members also being killed by the rebel forces. on the other hand, the rebel forces claims that they have to the control of several checkpoints, in the eastern and western side of dera, and also at tank belonged to the regime has been fears. and beside that 25 members of the regime forces also had been kept captive by the by the rebel forces. so far, also the rebel forces and the people of there are trying to block the roads and burning the car wheels to stop regime advancing into the city. so the how the
8:21 pm
clashes are still going on. but so far it seems that the massive attack from the regime has been re power for now. a massive forest fire and turkey coastal city of antonio has killed 3 people and injured 50. 8. authorities have evacuated, people in 20 neighborhoods and villages. turkey has experience several extreme were events recently including flash floods last week. the killed 6 people from the black seen region. hundreds of thousands of children are going to bed hungry 11 on report. my favorite children found more and more parents are unable to pay for food and medicine. it's worse for theory and refugees, 11 on 9 out of 10 families living in extreme poverty. the reporters, the gap and finance is needed to buy base of goods has grown by 550 percent. in the past year. earlier we spoke to up at bottom from save the children. he paid the grim picture of what thousands of children endure and have been on. it is
8:22 pm
a tragic situation for thousands and hundreds of thousands of children and by the way, from all backgrounds, we're not talking about just one with group or one nationality. one background we are talking about to graphically, demographically, an overall dark and very, very tough situation. just to give you an idea of how these children are living take today. and just to give you a breakdown of meals, for example, for any ordinary charles now and, and for breakfast, the children do not have the basics. they cannot afford things like cheese, for example. now i hear from parents that they children now mixing water and time to have breakfast for for lunch. for example, these children are relying on a bowl of boiled potatoes and a small dish of solid even grains, lentils rice are out of reach for these families. dinner simply doesn't exist for many families. baby milk doesn't exist for many, for many babies. now i hear people are mixing water and little sugar because sugar
8:23 pm
is also on affordable. these pieces, i mean, you would be forgiven to think that i'm reading your passage for much of because a story and 19th century. this is 21st century lebanon, a country that has been, you know, used to be a middle income country. now, particularly these families that have been and middle income category are falling down and done. and now we are talking about people who need 550 percent more money just to survive. more people have been killed, attacks and turf war in the south african city of cape town. rival come news of fighting for control of a busy route, violence who spoke fair among communities and dr. it's robin smith spoke to some of them with millions of south africans dependent on public transport. the government is not taking any chances. rival,
8:24 pm
taxi associations have been fighting for ownership of a busy route. confrontation have raged for years. and it's got worse. with more than 80 people killed so far this year. 24 of them in july alone. among those injured a 5 month old baby, i can eat his drivers and bystanders say they are living in fear. we can't exactly drive like the way we used to shoot because you go there we go, the way they go to shoot the poor guys. so 3 guys came out on the corner and then with just enjoying the sight of sight, the container where we know mine and those guys came to us, ending with guns. and then they came,
8:25 pm
shoots. one of our colleagues piece talks of so far failed prompting authorities to close the notorious route for the next 2 months and to make buses available to commuters as an alternative. and this is taken by government have helped to kuala violence. now, at least, but commuters are still being severely affected every evening, thousands q 4 hours before making the journey home by bus. for many, it doesn't stop failed and for the walk long distances in the dock in order to get home. last full, no, i have to take the next. was it in a book, you know, i'm what i'm thinking with lives and livelihood at stake, commuters effectively help hostage by the taxi was
8:26 pm
a desperate for inclusion to the violence. robinson and al jazeera have told me australia's entire limp track and field team went into isolation after an american athlete tested positive. if it covered 19 us poll, walter, sam kendricks has been ruled out of the competition which starts on saturday. had been training with streaming and home because it's marshall, all members of the extraneous team with testers and none were infected or the number of positive cases of corona var is also reaching record levels and the host city tokyo is reported more than 3800 new infections on thursday, and it's the same story across the country with the highest number of davy cases since the pandemic. again, just to sort of still get the good to and the number of newly infected people is increasing not only in the tokyo metropolitan areas, but also in the cons. i area,
8:27 pm
and many other areas of the country and the number of newly infected people is increasing. we have never experienced a spread of infection like this. movement of people is limited but is not prevented . the spread of infection on the delta variant is spreading rapidly like never seen before. evaluation analysis is being conducted on the think. this is the 1st, the lympics when many track and field athletes will be wearing so called soup issues to help improve their times. critics describe the technology being used as mechanical, doping, but the sports governing body and says no rules are being broken. and the registered reports from tokyo out with the old and in with the new i haven't just bought a fresh pair of running trainers. these are so called super shoes, using technology that can make even a middle aged man run with a renewed sprint get his step thought running with a pair of mini trampling strap see fi. normally when you're running, you lose a lot of energy. when you foot hit the ground, and obviously the longer your foot on the ground, the slower you go with the shoes,
8:28 pm
return that energy to you very quickly and spring you forward into next dried identity. she will be both of my legacy. when kenya's elliot kit shogi became the 1st man to break the to our barrier in the marathon obits in an unofficial race, he did it in super shoes. since the arrival in 2016 times run by top male, marathon runners have improved by 2 percent. it's slightly more women. what we're going to see in the sport is going to be a race between the manufacturers, vol. are all in the race between the athletes. an analogy could be formula one racing. if you're comparing to teams a $1000000000.00 teen versus a $100000.00 teen, if such a thing, you know the, the drive is no longer important. what's more important is the car athletics world governing body rejects. that's all humans saying what's inside the shoes is strictly regulated. so after a highly scientific shoe destruction experiment here in the main press center,
8:29 pm
this is what we're left with. full t millimeters of phones is allowed in a road running shoot. and then this, the carbon fiber plates here, and it's the scoop design of the carbon fiber plate. that's the key that directs the energy back to the runner. the scoop ship of the place essentially gives you a propulsive falls in the right direction. every time needed to when you go to your strength. and there's the where the shoes with salt lake rival shoes around about underneath 7 crumbs. all of these factors combine to around vol folks and improvement when economy are reduced cost ever negative space. the head of the world outlets expressed in co has a vested interest in making sure the rules are followed. early this year, the coast british indo $800.00 me to record was broken by run out wearing a truck version of the super issue. look, every few that's going to be utilized by the athletes has been checked and evaluated. we have a working group,
8:30 pm
but it's done that the broader discussion is always about the balance between innovation and mechanical advantage. but for the very 1st time, we do now have a system to be able to evaluate that. what's in no doubt is that this technology is changing top level athletics. and the speed of my early morning joke. andy richardson, algae, sarah, tokyo, ah, kimbell, and, oh, how the headlines on al jazeera to new z as president is accusing politicians of corruption and demanding the return of billions of dollars. he says was stolen from the public purse chi psi. it has also dismissed the head of the national stake television. the west african nation of senegal is struggling with a 3rd wave of covert 19 infections. hospitals are operating at full capacity. vaccines are in short supply. the delta variance is behind the recent spike and.
