program is an act of self defense. he says the build up is necessary to face hostile policies from the u. s. and increasing military forces in south korea. and a newly released parliamentary report has called the u. k. government's response to the sort of the current of iris pandemic, of the countries worst ever public health failures or the report did praise. the u . k. is vaccine program are more now on our top story and various un and independent agencies have sounded the alarm on the increasingly dire situation in afghanistan. 95 percent of households don't have enough to eat according to the world food program and to 1000000 children are malnourished because of a acute food shortages. about 90 percent of health facilities have been forced to close because of a lack of international aid. and the un phase of ganeth sans aid reliant economy will need $600000000.00 in the next few months to sustain humanitarian operations. but international donors have only provided about 35 percent of that. well,
4:31 pm
let speak to mister omar, abdi about all this. he is the deputy executive director at unicef and he's just returned from afghanistan is joining us live from the un in new york. thank you very much for being with us, miss abdi. it's not just, i guess about assets being frozen and money being frozen in afghanistan. it's also about resources running out you've just returned from afghanistan. give us a sense of how your teams are dealing with the crisis and what your messages to g 20 leaders meeting today. thank you. thank you for having me and thank you for reporting on let's kind of as you report it kind of stand is a country facing and huge crisis humanitarian crisis. even before the recent i people, we estimated about 10000000 children were in need of humanitarian support. and at least 1000000 of those were
4:32 pm
a crisco dying with severe mom attrition. i visited their hospital in capital or the manner attrition was what we saw was very shocking. the child, the hospital was still beyond capacity and lot of children. i did break up dying for run leticia and we expect this tuition to even get worse with the winter coming with severe trouts with the collapse of the social service system. as you reported, situation will get worse unless we all want believes quickly to convert a catastrophe. the your commission has pledged an additional $800000000.00 in emergency aid. but at the same time, the e s foreign policy chief has said they want to to give direct support to the afghan population in order to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, while not recognizing the taliban. so there's talk about creating other channels to bypass the taliban and get the resources directly to the people. how feasible is
4:33 pm
that bill is? is it easy for you to do that without dealing directly with the taliban on the ground? i think it is feasible it so the current though, the mountain now the priorities to our birth, thinking about it, city and crisis, why talk sat on going between the de facto government and the international community. we have had similar situations in yemen and other places where support to protect you went to the population so that you can set up systems where the support can reach people directly. which is the greatest priority right now. is it keeping pressure on the taliban to protect human rights? the rights of women in afghanistan, or is it preventing a humanitarian crisis? i think it's either or we're doing both. we're providing humanitarian support of
4:34 pm
the same time. we are advocating on asking the taliban to the promises that they've made with regard to the rights of women girls and minorities to deliver all it. i was able to discuss about the girl is going to secondary school when i was there. and we've got prom message and we expect that to few weeks that they will deliver. hopefully, it's abdi some n deals working in afghanistan have complained about harris meant and not being able to work in ideal conditions. is that something that you and your teams have faced on the ground? have you been able to conduct your operations as usual? we have also heard does some oh, we've had anecdotal information on our us mentioned as you can imagine i've kind of son is in transition to country and transition in some areas. we have access
4:35 pm
places where we haven't had access for many years in other areas. we face difficulties, so i think these are the issues to be expected that, that then yvonne takes control of the whole country. which brings me back to an initial question that i was asking, you know, the money is being played to european union pledging $1000000000.00. whatever money in aid comes to, how are we sure that it will filter through the people that it will go to the people directly? well, you know, the country there are n g o z that are you and agencies that can deliver reminded stadium support direct but anyone italian support is just part of the bigger issue that we need to address . i think there is no way that 58000000 people can be fed by it by revenue p. at some point the private sector has to come in, the economy has to kick in on. so the international community under
4:36 pm
defacto government would have to find a way of providing preventing the economy to collapse. thank you so much for taking the time to speak to us. our abdi is the deputy executive director of unicef joining us there from new york. we appreciate your time. chinese government is declaring a state of emergency in its south central region of aconia. that's where armed members of chill is indigenous. my poochie group have taken control of force. they've been protests in recent weeks in the capital santiago, my pu chair, demanding self determination and the preservation of an festal lands, largely owned by logging firms. live to our latin america editor lucio newman, who is in santiago for is so why is the government taking this measure now? and what does it imply in the last few months? certainly this year, these armed militants,
4:37 pm
my point to groups have become more and more bold carrying out acts of our sins, sabotage, taking over land and define it just recently. there was an attack on a home that it was set on fire. the couple that was inside was unable to escape. the husband died from the burden wound, the wife is still in hospital. and then finally, the last straw came when another unknown until now armed group of militants, of put, sent out a message on social networks and said that they would not, they would fight to the finish who police tried to expel them. and a community that had taken over to his oldest national reserve, and that is a forestry reserve in the albany region. the president has been under tremendous pressure for months now from conservatives within his own party and even and other groups, including truck drivers to call a state of siege. we had our gun. yeah. but he has been reluctant to do so until
4:38 pm
now. but finally, apparently the pressure has been too great. he is going to make the announcement officially some time today, according to the president of his political party, he's keeping his cards very close to his chest. so far we know that the state of emergency is going to last for 3 weeks, at least, and they did a lot will allow for the army to go in, work alongside the police and presumably really get tough on these groups. and until now, have pretty much been able to do what they like, what's likely to be the reaction to this state of emergency. well 1st of all, the opposition is it says that this is just a ploy, a political ploy on the part of the president to try to, to, to deflect attention from the fact that he is facing a, an impeachment bid in congress which may be voted on as early as tomorrow, others say that it's simply he's caving in tool pressure from the conservatives in
4:39 pm
the country because the electric presidential elections are coming up in 6 weeks time. but certainly, some people in the elk idea region, the chileans, the farmers, especially the truck drivers and the forest companies will be applauding this measure. the question is how effective will it be and how much will this contribute to actually resolving the issue? the problem with them approaches which are it where a cause for dialogue have been completely frozen so i won't solve the problem, but it might make some people happy in the short term lithia. thank you very much. lucy newman is our latin america editor, live there from santiago. in bolivia, anti government protestors have been demonstrating against the proposed law. they say is a step towards a police state grants blocked street and were met by counter protestors in support of the president legislation being considered would allow authorities to investigate the office of any citizen without a court order or the government says it's essential to tackle elicit earnings and

a new treatment for head and neck cancer and tries testing. a combination of immunotherapy drugs showed it may work better than chemotherapy. scientists in london found mixing to medication significantly reduced or kill tumors in temporarily ill. people. survival rate saw the highest recorded in a 1st line therapy child for people with head and neck. cancer patients who took part lived an average of 3 months longer than those receiving chemotherapy, and the new treatment reportedly cause fewer side effects. kevin harrington is a professor of biological cancer therapies at the institute for cancer research and consultant. clinical oncology, said the royal martsen, he explains the aim of immunotherapy. so in contrast to normal treatment with chemotherapy, immunotherapy tries to wake up the patient's own immune system to attack the disease. so rather than trying to poison cancer cells into submission, we actually enlist the help of the patients own immune system to do the heavy
4:45 pm
lifting and to attack the cancer. 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, 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 real improvement. and for some patients, for the 1st time, we're beginning to see we can potentially cure their disease. so they remain in

what they wanted as quickly as possible after they became the 1st team to qualify for the cat hartwell cup. they beat north macedonia to secure top's thought in their group. they were already goal up when team a verna score 2 and 3 minutes to put them in complete control. and 18 year old sub jamal marcial, a made it for knell to become germany 2nd youngest ever scorer, germany making up for their surprised defeat to north macedonia. back in march and secure their place, woke up with 2 qualifying games to spare them into cedar ice sales. we have now achieved our goal of qualifying as quickly as possible. so we are the 1st motion of the cato to qualify the 1st or for the good while when we lacked a bit of determination. but in the 2nd path, we did much better and deserved to windless game, which i may have had a great run under new coach hansi flick the man who previously led by and munich to 6 trophies in one season. they $1.00 oh $5.00 games since he took over from yoke him, lo, after the euros securing 18 goals and conceding just one. we spoke to football,
