6:02 pm
these have been ongoing discussions as the taliban seat, such as the international legitimacy. after taking over the government in afghanistan, we've been seeing talks from various different countries engagements and various different envoys heading to afghanistan as well as afghan and boys heading abroad. these are obviously very critical talks and some, some, some ongoing ones that we expect to continue. or will be bringing you all the latest from there as we get it. in the meantime, though, let's move on to the current virus pandemic. now, he downplayed the severity of coven 19 and ignored international guidelines to contain the pandemic now and investigation by brazil. senate is recommending that president j able scenario be charged with crimes against humanity for his response . the parliamentary inquiry committee is accusing him of pushing brazil's death toll to the world's 2nd highest. more than half
6:03 pm
a 1000000 people have died from the virus in brazil, the draft report still needs to be voted on by the senate committee, where it could still be vetoed or altered. or let's now speak to monica yanna care that she's live now for us. and one is aries at monica. just how serious are the findings of this report? the sound like fairly serious charges? yes, they are well on crimes against humanity. that's very serious. and as you said, he's being accused of at least being responsible for the death, the deaths of 300000 of the 600000 that died. and because he delayed the vaccination campaign, although brazil does have the means and the expertise of mat vaccination, he flouted the use of the mask. he scoffed at of safety measures all publicly. so there was a lot of counter information in brazil which, which led to, to
6:04 pm
a lot of unnecessary deaths. i just spoke of. 7 out a few hours ago with the president of the senate panel, it has 11 members and asked him, what could this lead to? he said if, if all the crimes that bull sonata was being charged with really were taken seriously by the justice. he could be, he could have, could be penalized with 80 years of prison. now this is not likely to happen, but it is still something that, at least we'll make somebody accountable for what happened in brazil. and they are thinking also of going to the supreme court and of going to the international court at the hague, against full sonata. so this is a very important investigation. no other present in brazil has ever been charged with so many crimes as bull,
6:05 pm
so not right now. now this has to be voted by this 11 panel committee on october 26. and it will probably be approved because 7 of the senators including the present and the repertoire, himself and the vice president, they are all in favor of this report. monica, what does all of this mean for both scenario? personally, could he potentially face impeachment ahead of elections that i believe are expected next in yes, well the elections will be in exactly a year. and i, again, the president of this saw senate committee told me he thought bad and impeachment would be unlikely as do many other analysts because there isn't enough time. and it's a political issue. and both sonata still has a support in the house of representatives. the president of the house of the representatives is the person that has to accept, ah,
6:06 pm
an impeachment request there already 130 impeachment requests against bull sonata. and they have been all sitting in the drawer, so it's unlikely he will be impeached, but it is taking a toll on his popularity. and at this moment, he would lose the election to former president, louisiana, to lula, thus silver. if elections were to day, but anything can change from now to a year in a year's time, some interesting months ahead. and monahan account there with all the natives for us humble desires. thanks monica, and back to moscow, which as i said, alley is missing. talk to kathy from sally bank and how long has been given an update on freezing the assets of one of san central bank, which is actually the us itself, the avalon people. and it should not be connected with political issues. and also all the but the bidding countries, they supported close engagement with the new islamic government and of honest on

6:12 pm
i'm gonna p o the shade, little cool. it took a whole lot more saw that, that is sunny, a devil understand what they're going call to be sold to. i had and the home i gotta saw was lot america until the he looked at the roster, muddy auto on his thumb. tomorrow she'll probably what he's on fi, baldwood jealous, mamma, whom repeal obama? all right. he will be bringing you more from that press conference a little bit later on this bulletin. but for now let's move on. now to bonds have exploded on an army bus in the syrian capital killing at least 14 people, the west attack in damascus in years. several others were injured. a 3rd bomb was also dismantled near by him. how to have the nicest or rare attack in the heart to the syrian capital. a military bus was the target. many were killed and injured. when, according to stake, media to explosive devices went off, the bus was at
6:13 pm
a transport point under the east bridge and damascus. these kinds of attacks haven't happened in years, particularly since 2018 when government forces clear that the armed opposition strongholds around the city, though there has been no claim of responsibility. but the syrian regime is facing threats on multiple front. i remain the end of the declared candidate in syria in early 2019 by the joint forces of the us. and as the did not mean the end of the year had this organization, which still was the threats and a thicker the challenge, especially after the change of status of the stomach state, which largely focused on the site attack. the country remains divided along front lines and millions remain displaced. and while some host countries are starting to promote their return, human rights groups are again warning. it is not safe in the absence of certain conditions. in a report, human rights watch said it interviewed 65,
6:14 pm
return knees or family members. it documented $21.00 cases of arrest and arbitrary detention, 13 cases of torture. 3 kidnappings, 5 extra judicial killings. 17 enforced disappearances. and one case of reported sexual violence. this includes people that had clearances, supposedly before they return, they assurances that they would not be persecuted or reconciliation agreements as they are called and were given documents to say that they would not be hunted down . but in fact, that's exactly what happened to people. president bashar assets forces now control much of syria after military help from his allies, russia and iran help tip the balance of power in his favor. but wednesday's explosion was a serious security breach, and it shows, once again, syria is still in crisis than other al jazeera. soon after that explosion and
6:15 pm
damascus government forces bond, the rebel held city of rica, that's an in the province at least 13 people that were killed, including children out there as milan. fidel effect. i shall stop by the field more than a dozen people have been killed and others injured. here in ari has city in the it live province. a syrian government forces targeted the city with nearly a dozen artillery shells. about about the showing came in the early morning hours when children were on their way to school. as a result, majority of the victims were young children of poplar, or the highest considered one of the most densely populated cities in the opposition held area laid policy. as you would expect, most of the residents here have been displaced from other areas within syria. it might be very hop on the follow following the recent bombardment. residents have started to leave the city which is situated on the south end of the aleppo le takia
6:16 pm
highway. it is a strategic geographical location as it is the connecting point between the opposition held areas in the north with those in the south of it lived in the uh huh. i still plenty more heavy. the sneeze are including north korea confirms tuesdays ballistic missile came from a submarine. the u. s. denounces the provocation that says it's open to tools and china lights and the olympic flame and beijing ahead of its controversial winter games and 20 twenty's that's coming up in sport, please. ah, now the man accused of killing 17 people that afar at a high school back in 2018 has pleaded guilty in court. nicholas cruz was expelled from marjorie steinman douglas high school for disciplinary reasons, days before the shooting. a jury will now decide whether he should be executed or
6:17 pm
sentenced to life in prison. while it's now speak to andy gallagher, he's following the hearing for us from miami and the i see nicholas appearing and caught himself to day. yeah, he appeared in court himself and essentially by pleading guilty to 17 counts of murder and 17 of attempted murder. he's given up his constitutional right to a jury trial. that means in the next few months, he will face a jury of his peers and they will decide between 2 options, which is life in prison and in florida, that means you die in prison and the death penalty. but during this trial, you could see the relatives of those that were lost 3 years ago. on february, the 14th, it was a very emotional time for them. people were wiping away tis, but nicholas cruz also gave something of an apology to the families of people that were last saying that he has to live with this every day that he cannot sleep. but even more bizarrely, he asked the judge and the court to let the victims families decide his fate. that
6:18 pm
is not what is going to happen. he has to go before a jury of people that will not be related to any one that was killed in what was one of the was us school shootings in history. and i'm pretty sure that apology at will bring scan comfort to those who lost people. this was one of the worst match shootings in us. history at nicholas cruz took an assault rifle into a school he'd been expelled from an open fire. we saw those pictures around the world of those at children running away from that school, but he now faces 2 choices. one is that he goes to prison for life until he dies. all that he's executed under florida state laws. so i think for the parkland community this may be the beginning of something like closure, although it's hard to imagine if you lost a child, whether you can ever do that. but incidentally on this day as well, the broward school board awarded $25000000.00 to those people that lost children
6:19 pm
and loved ones. and also those that was severely injured at money that i don't think will make up for what they lost on that day. and he kind of got, are following that for us from man. thanks so much. and he now for the pandemic and the white house has unveiled plans to vaccinate millions of children between the ages of 5 and 11 against the 19 centers for disease control and prevention advisory meeting is scheduled for november 2nd. and then once the panel gives its formal approval, vaccine shipments will be sent out with an hours and then also include small needles and needed for injecting young kids. we have more than enough vaccine for every child age 511. that's $28000000.00 in total. as soon as the vaccine is authorized by the f t a. so the 1st step in the process, that's when we will begin to ship pending the cdc's decision will ship, about $15000000.00 doses out nationwide in those next few days,
6:20 pm
with millions more going out each and every week to make sure that we're matching the doses with where they're most needed while rasa is giving work as a week off with pay to have an alarming rise and curve in 1900 cases and deaths. their present got to be approved and has just approved a government proposal for a week long holiday. at the end of the month. there's the hesitancy among russians to get the locally produced sputnik vaccine. putin is urging the public to show responsibility and get vaccinated to do the situation related to the corona virus pandemic is difficult in our country with the pace of the spread of the epidemic in many regions has significantly increased recently. what you do, your colleagues have just told me the statistic numbers. in the meantime, the vaccination rate of citizens remains low, unfortunately. well, me, well can you of president has listed a nation wide caf you as a spread of curve at 19 that appears to be slowing. it's been under some form of calf you since march last year. the restrictions such as wearing mosque,
6:21 pm
so remain mandatory. now moving on an air strikes of hit the capital of ethiopia, she grew region for the 2nd time this week, the government said it was targeting facilities used to make and repair weapons. but a spokesman for the rival to bryan forces denied that at least 3 people were killed in strikes on mcclay. on monday, the conflict in the north has been going for nearly a year now. 1000 have been count. well, john, this samuel gets into says it's difficult to actually confirm details independently because of the communication black out across the region. from the images were able to watch but cannot verify. it seems to be a heavy target and there will be many, many victims from this later strike that happened then mccully, they took government on monday night and then they confirmed this. but the target, this head is communication equipment to try to slow down the success that we've
6:22 pm
been watching left in terms of capturing tone outside of to go into the horror and the party from the get go. the ciocca and government has been clear in terms of pointing their fingers against that they've been saying that the money that has been stealing resources and using it for to perhaps provide support to their soldiers. that's the persuasive of, if you will get it in the past. the t p i left, they would say the opposite. so this is a conflict that we're a bate in a challenging position to verify what's being said. because we have no access of the state of well demonstration in nigeria, a mocking a year since at least 12 protesters were killed during rallies against police brutality. i add to the say the government's promises. a reform had been hollow crowds and lagos
