2:03 pm
order. diplomats tell me there's no way the u. s. and it's western allies will agree to unfreeze afghanistan's assets and hand that money directly to the taliban . but the un believes there's another solution to inject money into afghanistan's economy, and that's using trust funds set up, for example, by the u. n. development program or the world bank, and those funds can then be used to pay for vital supplies and salaries. already one such scheme is up and running, allowing a fund of $15000000.00 to be accessed by hospitals and health care workers. james bayes al jazeera at the united nations of 0, stephanie deca jones, her son alive from cobble stuff. the the u. m. secretary general was painted a really bleak picture of the humanitarian economic crisis that to afghanistan currently faces give us some idea of the challenges. but ordinary people have to deal with on a daily basis. well, at the moment, one of the main things is simply feeding themselves. and i don't like to always
2:04 pm
quote un figures because you kind of lose the, the individual tragedy of those stories. but as well through program saying that only 5 percent of households are getting enough food. why is out there is no money . you know, there's very little jobs these days. there is no cash people cannot get hold of cash. i, if you do have money in the bank, you need to q, you can only get it in cobble in a couple of other major cities. so you need to travel if you live anywhere else, q up major qs, adrian, and then not guarantee that you get your cash $200.00 maximum a week. and this is people who have means you have other people who've been depended on daily jobs, daily wages, and with that feeding their families. they're large families, your age and people have many kids, 8910 children. and then you have food insecurity. you've had one of the worst droughts that afghanistan has in over 30 years, so the farmer is in the provinces and you know, there is no water, they don't have crop. so it's a whole cycle of catastrophe at a time when this country are ready before the taliban took over,
2:05 pm
was facing economic hardship. i covered the maria refugee camp, burning down last year in greece. europe's biggest record you kept. the majority of refugees there last year were afghan refugees, people you speak to now? okay. yes. many people want to leave because of the taliban. but there's others who say it's not about the taliban. it's about the economy. and the challenge now is we've just had a pledge from the european commission saying, you know, most 1000000000 euros being pledged yet. how does it filter through to the people salaries aren't being paid? people haven't been paid in months. many of the taliban fighters have been paid for months when that could be a the challenge at a time when ice okay, is on the rise year in terms of recruitment. so there's so many elements to the us of the stand off, if you will, between the international community and the thought about of withholding. you know, billions of dollars of money that this country has become dependent upon over the last $2.00 decades. and really is having a devastating impact on the people. al jazeera, stephanie deca,

reporting live from cobble stuff. many things, preliminary election results in iraq point to a strong outcome to the party of shia cleric mac tut asada. ah. but none of the political blocks appears to have secured a majority. full of private said, no real monarchy looks to have the 2nd largest vote among ship parties. sunday's pole was held several months early, but voter turnout was a record low of just about 40 percent. let's go life out of baghdad. i'll just here was alley hush is that we were to tell us more of the reaction to these election results. it is the selection go to make, make any difference at all to the lives of ordinary iraqis. well that when it's clear, this is not going to change a lot. the same political factions are back in the parliament, but with different numbers of seats. now we have looked of a sudden securing the majority by it's not the majority that will allow him to go for a to choose
2:07 pm
a government untrue to rule the country. he need other allies with him. so he is going to forge allies alliances with the sudanese, with the kurtz, with all their independent. i'm a candidates are members are falling now in order to be able to name and you prime minister and just to, to, to, to explain it. looked of a sudden, a has 73 seats now in the, in the parliament while department, the parliament is made up of 329 seats. so his still needs another and may be 90 seats in order to be able to choose a prime minister. and this is very complicated given the situation in iraq. now other putting aside most of us, other that are other players, especially from the shaw community for example, the father, a coalition that represents that v amused the popular mobilization units that they wasn't able to get the number of deputies and our members of parliament. they had
2:08 pm
them to pass elections now they are denouncing the whole election and saying that it's not unfair. it's a, it's a, it's a frode. and it's kind of a resort into a brinkman ship in order to pressure for the leverage. so that they'd have his say in the choice of the new prime minister albany, thanks, al 0 alhashan that live in back that the u. k. government's delay in imposing a locked out at the start of the pandemic is one of the country's worst ever public health failures. that's the damage conclusion of a newly released parliamentary report. the inquiry by m. p is also found that releasing people from hospital inter care homes cost thousands of lives. they also criticize the test and trace process and weak border controls, but they praised the u. kays vaccine program life to london, al jazeera jona hall is at the national cove at 19 memorial wall in the capital
2:09 pm
jona, one of the worst public health failures in u. k. history. that is, as we said, a pretty damning assessment. tell us more about what's in this report. but it is an almost universally scathing damning report this by cross party group event, bees empties from both major parties into the government's handling of the covey pandemic, particularly in its early stages. there are a few moments of positivity, praise for the government to the extent that it was involved in these things. in terms of the rapid development approval of roll out of the vaccines. also the development of life saving treatments, both of which baltic or scientists from oxford university, but on the whole a litany here of criticisms and failures laid bare in the report. that concludes, as you said, britain's early handling of the corona virus pandemic was one of the worst public health failures in u. k. history. i'll take you through a couple of the pilots. it looks at the delay by boris jocelyn ordering the 1st
2:10 pm
locked out in march. 2020, that despite evidence from other countries that showed the lockdown to being used to some effect. but that was part as the report of a deliberate policy aimed at achieving heard immunity as proposed by official scientific advisers. it caught said the report a significant number of lives, only when that policy was found to be or shown to be impossible. did the government change? tacket accuses scientists and ministers of, quote, group think leading to a lack of transparency and decision making, a lack of meaningful challenge, a lack of information and knowledge sharing with international experts. all who were dealing with the same price is at the same sort of time. it notes that despite the u. k, being among the 1st countries to develop a useful cobit test, squandered that lead and turned it into quote, a permanent prices after the government dropped mass testing in march 2020. and only when a test, when a test trace nights or some came along
2:11 pm
a couple of months later, it was described in the report, a slow, uncertain, often chaotic and ultimately failed in its objective. and as you pointed out, that they were further criticisms level, that the government's failure to protect vulnerable groups, notably, care residents and black, asian and minority ethnic groups, as well as the restaurant a whole life in london, germany thinks the are a state of texas as band organizations and companies from enforcing coven 19 vaccine mandates. governor greg albert has been one of the most vocal opponents of making vaccines mandatory in the u. s. his move comes as the bible administration prepared to require employers with more than $100.00 workers to be vaccinated or test weekly for the virus thailand. plans to accept vaccinated tourists flying from countries that it says a low risk from next month. it was crap hotel, quarantined to travelers from 10 countries that include the u. k. the u. s. germany

2:13 pm

2:17 pm
a new treatment for head and neck cancer. a trial testing a combination of immunotherapy drugs showed that it may work better than chemotherapy. scientists and london found the mixing 2 medications significantly reduced or killed tumors in terminally ill people. survival rates of the highest reported at a 1st line therapy trial for people with head and neck. cancer patients who took part lived an average of 3 months longer than those receiving chemotherapy, and that you treatment reportedly caused fewer side effects to tell us more, kevin harrington is professor of biological cancer therapies at the institute for cancer research and consulting clinical oncologist at the royal marston hospital, he's with us now a good chevy with this professor. so how does this work? so in contrast to normal treatment with chemotherapy, immunotherapy tries to wake up the patients own immune system to attack the disease . so rather than trying to poison cancer cells into submission,
2:18 pm
we actually enlist the help of the patients an immune system to do the heavy lifting and to attack the cancer. as we said, it's being hailed as a very promising combination of drugs of drug therapy. and yet we went on to say that people are only living an average of 3 months longer than those on on chemotherapy. so is it, is this a miracle drug or not? i think it's important to set this into context so regrettably, for patients who have head and neck cancer whose disease comes back off to the original treatment, which is usually either surgery or radiation and chemotherapy, or a combination of all 3 of those treatments when the disease comes back, the average life expectancy up until now has been about 10 months. that's a miserable figure for these poor patients. what we've been able to show in this study is that in contrast to chemotherapy, the average survival,
2:19 pm
the average survival has gone up by 3 months. but for a significant number of patients, it's greater than this. and so in the best responding group, the average survival is as high as 18 months now, which is a very, really good plan. and for some patients, for the 1st time, we're beginning to see we can potentially cure their disease. so the remaining durable man remission for many years after treatment. so there's still a great deal more to do, but we are potentially beginning to get to the point where we can cure this cancer in some patients. what about other counselors? does this, does this drug, a combination of drugs have potential beyond head and neck counselors? well, and indeed it does. and of course, this combination of drug treatments was initially developed for the treatment of other types of disease. so it was initially trial in melanoma where it has been actually revolutionary. and also in other types of kansas,
2:20 pm
notably in lung cancer. combinations of immunotherapy have also been shown to be beneficial kidney cancer likewise. so this study that we have been produced here is really following in the tracks of others. but really in a disease that has such a miserable i come with the very impressive improvements in survival for some of our patients. you're a clinical consulting clinical oncologist, your it's your profession to new york. that's the way that you are in your profession to be measured and not to to, to raise false hope and people. but are you excited it, professor? well, we are seeing a complete c change in the way we address a number of different types of cancer including head and neck cancer. so until 5 years ago, if patients develop recurrent head and neck cancer, the only recalls for them would be chemotherapy. we're now in
2:21 pm
a situation where we have more than one approved drug for the treatment of this type of disease, which is immunotherapy. and we're actually in a situation what no way around the world. the majority of patients will potentially be able to benefit from immunotherapy, including potentially combinations of these sorts that we've just tested. and also combinations of immunotherapy, with chemotherapy, where we're seeing even those combinations are working better than standards of care. so i hate to raise fall so, but i think we are at the beginning of a sea change in the way we address a number of tumors, including internet professor. it's been really good to talk to you, but effective date for being with as much research my session. thank you. north korea's leader settled his weapons. development program is an act of self defense. kim jong own, made the comments and an exhibition showcasing military hardware. he says the build up is necessary to face hostile policies from the united states and increasing
2:22 pm
