12:06 am
airport is currently closed because of the fighting. we're also hearing the un compound, which is all that road from the city to the airport has come on the attack. i'm hearing from local sources that no un stuff had been killed or injured. but there were guards working for the african government around that compound. and there are reports that some may have been taken injured, the reports been taken hostage. there also reported some been injured and i've got one report that at least one has been killed. meanwhile, us president joe biden has welcome the 1st plane load of afghans who worked alongside american forces into the united states. 221 people including 57 children and 15 babies were on the flight. they were taken on buses to for a military base in the state of virginia, so far, 20000 others of apply for special immigrant visas. and what's been a long and complicated process. many of them are interpreters who are considered
12:07 am
a major target for the taliban. we're running out of time and we're not doing what's necessary to save these people. and every day that we don't do anything as a gift to the taliban, because it gives them just that much more time to hide down these people and kill them. we were fighting for the country that we have never seen it, even in our dream and all of us. we have a us flag on our shoulder. and we were fighting for the year for the flood. and we thought we were american. we considered our self with an american because we were, we were serving this country or neural how can i see me fled to afghanistan and 999 with his family and founded the african on central asian association, which helps refugees here in the u. k. joins me now from london. you must be in touch with many afghans in the country. we're seeing a taliban increasing that control of territory around big cities and

12:09 am
people have gone to something they still haven't. let us use content. they don't know what's happening in the next few months. there is a city of uncertainty within the people who have its own outside and inside. i was hearing that, you know, in coal people, they just want to find a way how they can leave the company all do. there are some program brand boy, the whole office to being some of the translators and totally from i've got a song, but the biggest problem is not just the most translators and turkey. it has been working with a really big enough gunner song. there are millions of people who doesn't have any choice tonight. can i ask you, have you been, have you been contacted by anyone inside the country? we have already received number of messages through the social media to see
12:10 am
hundreds of emails for the fall. one month, they are asking us a little bit into how we can help those people to contact the unit or to contact the some of the embassies. but the problem is that, that you and normally they have their own policy. there are only a camper built to support people in the country and order them for insight. i've got a song to forgive me. does that mean that i mean we're already seeing an exodus or anything? many people trying to flee the country? does that mean that we will see a large proportion of africa and fleeing to places like iran or pakistan and then they might try to to make plans further plans for man the migration. how lydia is started to eat on a focus on that or over 5000 my going on for me. i've got to sell all

12:13 am
years old and i have never seen such a severe flood in my life. it has caused a lot of distraction. we used to live without a bridge and now it's been billed. the flood is washed away. news from hong kong now or 24 year old activist has been jailed for 9 years under the territories controversial national security rules, tongue in kit as a 1st pass and tried under the law imposed by bay ging last year. the day after it came into force, he wrote a motorbike into a group of police officers while flying an independent flag has been found guilty of inciting succession and terrorism. china says it has a right to secure, seen out of the terrible, just like any other country. emily allows the chair woman of the international affairs committee of hong kong as democratic party. she says, this won't stop the fight for civil rights. of course, it's a very, very heavy sentence, and if the chinese government wants to send a signal to the home, people about not reaching the national security law,
12:14 am
they have really done it quite successfully. and i think many people are being in jamaica ages and, but i just wanted to tell you the game is not over and we will continue to fight for civil and political rights. and what do you say you're stressing that in the judgment, there was little mention of the protection of civil and political rights, which i in fact in the national security law. so now people just don't know whether these rights are protected at all the boundaries. i'm not very clear, and hence it make people even more vehicle and all the stories of falling. the corona virus crisis in the lympics house country is getting worse. japan is expanding its state of emergency with restrictions remaining in place in tokyo until the end of next month. the prime minister says the virus is spreading is unprecedented, right? and it's mostly because of the delta variant,
12:15 am
rama brian reports. now with cases spiking, tokyo, it seems, has no choice, but to extend its state of emergency through to the end of august. how soon are going to deal with unprecedented speed? the infection is spreading in the capital and can cy area. the delta variant is spreading with strength. and if this doesn't slow down, it will potentially lead to a medical health system crisis. japan is struggling with competing trends. the increasing spread of the more transmissible delta variant accounting. now, for nearly 3 quarters of all new cases in tokyo versus growing pandemic fatigue. with noticeably more people failing to stay off the streets than they did after state of emergency announcements in the past with the seat of emergency being enforced so many times i think people are starting not to take it so seriously. and because of that, there have been more cases at this point. i think there's not much you can do,
12:16 am
even if you get the corona virus, i don't want to get infected. but there are a lot of people who can't avoid it. states of emergency are expected to be extended to 3 more prefecture as neighboring, tokyo, as well as o. sucka, which was badly hit by an early wave of the pandemic in the spring when its hospital resources were stretched to the breaking point. the fear is, unless this wave can be brought under control of the prefect, yours will suffer a similar strain. and because it has been recognised that both the infections situation and the pressure on the medical care provision system is extremely severe . and still, even as these games finish their 1st week, protesters continue to demand that cancellation, taking their message to the office of the prime minister. ja shahid, a suga in this election year, suga may find pushing ahead with these games will cost him politically,
12:17 am
with still deep uncertainty over what price japan will bear in terms of public health. rub, mcbride, al jazeera. elsewhere, china is battling its 1st major covered 19 outbreak and months honoring the 84 cases have been diagnosed hundreds of thousands of people and now in locked down in ginger province. costa was 1st detected in the regional capital, non ging, but as spread to 5 all the provinces and to beijing. officials believe the surgeons linked to the delta variant. and then thailand is bonding domestic travels, the tourist hotspots of cat next month after but foreign is vaccinated against co that they will still be welcome. the resort island, is it a center of efforts to revive the tourism industry, which was devastated during the past 18 months? thailand itself was mostly on the scale by the pandemic until only recently. but on thursday, it reported more than 17000 infections. and $165.00 deaths, which are both rec, or daily highs. and as those cases rise,
12:18 am
time government is warning people against spreading what it calls damaging information. honors there is tony chang has more than this now from bangkok. well, this is, i think, some of a shock to people who are really wishing the gun would concentrate its efforts on trying to resolve the dramatic rises in an infection rate and that we've seen over the past 3 weeks. nonetheless, the government has published new regulations saying that it will have people who publish misinformation. they're using the term fake news financially as it's described in the law. it says anyone who creates panic amongst the public, by publishing information regarding the coven 19 crisis. now they've actually had these pounds since they introduced the lockdown measures 2 weeks ago, but they've decided to tighten them up. the prime minister and the person in charge of the digital ministry said they would be enforced. they've asked internet service
12:19 am
providers to shut down the eyes piece of any one they feel is guilty of doing this . but i think basically there is, it's an indication that there is a lot of criticism out there about the government now living to africa and in uganda. the president has extending restrictions to contain the virus off to the countries death toll increased 6 fold since the month of may. a nighttime coffee will be enforced in places of worship or main close for the next 60 days. schools are also stay closed until the country complaints at vaccination program. only about a 1000000 of uganda is population of 45000000 have been vaccinated so far. and then in canyon, the government there is extending its nighttime curfew and binding all public gatherings as it struggles to control a surgeon curve. at 19 cases, health minister is warning. the hospitals are overwhelmed and people who get sick will not have access to
12:20 am
a bed. kenya has been on the some of the some form of coffee since march last year . now recorded more than 200000 cases. and nearly 4000 death. we go to italy, now. the country is fully vaccinated, more than half of its population over the age of 12, but not collecting hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants is proving a challenge as adam rainy reports now from just outside run the night on a recent evening in room a couple of dozen people get their jabs had a pop up, cooper 19 center. some are homeless. others are immigrants, clinics like this are the only chance they have to get vaccinated below final thought and you can't get it vaccine appointments, a health card or visit a doctor if you'd like me and your residency isn't sorted out for medical media. but i'm wondering in, across italy, there are more than 600000 people who live in work without documents,
12:21 am
many of them migrant farm workers from asia and africa. and for month, italy has struggled to find a way to reach these communities. it was made more difficult because the delivery of care is handled by italy's 20 regions. so each region has had to come up with its own plan. i want to feed us, i need audio. i don't have feet anchor political it say public health and political challenges. the goal is to provide the service to the last one in line on the migrants who have been totally exploited content. at the same time, we help our sales by vaccinating them on can see the next not sure. now, regional health officials are partnering with agencies and charities and going directly to these communities, making appointments for people, whether they have national health insurance or not. they're also setting up mobile vaccines centers like this one on the edge of a large immigrant community. and 3 days officials have vaccinated more than 1100
12:22 am
people here, all of the migrant farm workers and 20 percent of them have no legal work papers. some here, if those without documents, were afraid of being caught out and sent home just by taking the shot out through a job, the translator one and documented worker told us he wasn't scared. he just wanted to be safe from coven 19. but not many migrants are given a single johnson and johnson dos and acknowledgement that they are hard to track down for follow up appointment. some officials though are hoping this is a turning point for italy at the pop up clinic in the room. temporary national health cards are issued. so the vaccination become an entry point to give some form of health assistance to people that do not have the opportunity to. italy relies heavily on foreign workers to pick its fruit and vegetables. although regions are
12:23 am
trying to vaccinate as many people as they can, there is no national database of how many undocumented migrants have received the shot. that poses a risk both to the migrant themselves and italians, adarine algebra, rome will israel has become the 1st country to offer a 3rd shot of a coven, 19 vaccine president isaac huts, oak, and his wife. for the 1st received a booster shot will be people over the age of 6 who received their 2nd dose more than 5 months ago to attempt to carve infections caused by the very contagious delta variance. or in other developments, israel's foreign minister is calling for a harsh response to an attack on an israeli managed oil tank off the coast of oman, which killed 2 crew members. zodiac maritime says the partition remain in work has died in an incident, a cold suspected piracy on the vessel. liberian flag tanker is wrong by

a company owned by the wealthy israel ofa israeli over family. the u. s. navy is escorting the vessel to safety. donald trump has been hit with 2 legal setbacks, courtesy of the us justice department 1st could reveal more about his tax affairs. the 2nd shines a light on his attempts to overturn last year's elections. let's get more in this now from shop or town. see in washington, 1st of all what, what are we seeing with the tax returns? specifically, what does the, the treasury department has to do? now? it appears the treasury department is going to comply with an order to hand over 6 years of donald trump's tax returns. when the house ways and means committee in 2019 1st requested them as part of an investigation into donald trump's. and that just conflicts of interest that the department of justice to his office of legal council decided, but the, the congressional committee had overstepped it. it's market didn't have
12:25 am
a legal right to get these get these tax returns and went to court, try and challenge that. now, the office of legal council under joe biden, has decided, in fact, that congressional committee does have the rights to see, to see those tax returns. it has the rights to does huge leeway. in fact, if anyone's tax returns, if it wants to, that doesn't mean that they're necessarily going to get it there. because once again, donald trump certainly can. if he wants, we haven't heard from him yet. he can now go to the courts and challenge this challenge challenges. that's the order to hand over the tax returns. but certainly another demo in donald trump's attempts for such a long time than to keep his tax return secret. we will circles that the new york district attorney have access to some of his tax returns to, but those are remain secret cuz they're all part of a grand jury investigation. and then what about these attempts to overturn last year's election results? what action might be taken against donald trump on that matter? it's not clear, but the department of justice has handed over. what were,
12:26 am
what's been presented as contemporaneous notes from the deputy attorney general last december of a telephone conversation between donald trump, the attorney general and the deputy attorney general. it was an immediate relief to the new york times and exhibited for internal use only do not distribute well we habit and the stunning but is that you can see the scan. these are presented as the, the accounts the memorialize. ation of that conversation by the deputy attorney general and it documents over and over again. donald trump basically pleading with the acting attorney general and the deputy did a general to, to look into and advocates that there was plenty of election fraud underway in november. and that both segment mississippi no evidence about actually happening. and we certainly can't overturn the election. and then the a kid aligned, according to this contemporaneous notes by the w 2 in general, is tom says, look out, understand that. but you can't overturn the election. just say that the election
12:27 am
was corrupt and leave the rest to meet. and the suggestion is also that he would then we'll leave it up to his republican allies and congress them to run with any statements from the d. i. j, about the conduct of the election to try and carry on that narrative that the election was corrupt. it is raising some eyebrows there because ordinarily the d. j wouldn't release notes from officials in any event iteration because it's, that's a precedent. and how could actually any official give candidates, private advice to a president when he thinks of actually what you think. so this will going to be handed over and made public sunday, but the da says this is extraordinary circumstance that the, the right to confidentiality is for the benefit of the nation. and in this case, this is an investigation to the conduct of a sitting president. so therefore it's ok. in addition, the d j is also allowing the deputy attorney general, the attorney general white house officials to give what their cooling and unrestricted testimony to congressional investigators looking at all the dramas conduct after the election. all right,
