10:07 pm
un and are the u. s. and others issuing a joint statement, calling for the release of jail, businessman osmotica, viola. he'd been accused of involvement in a failed coo and a financing nationwide protest. 3 years earlier, the ambassadors have not yet been notified of their status, but the expulsions would mark the deepest rift between turkey and the west during our de ones 19 years and power if they are carried out. well i sa, i didn't touch bashes as senior policy fellow at your european council on foreign relations. she joins us over skype now from a stumble. thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us. could you start by explaining, could you start by explaining why president are the one that is so upset about this declaration by the ambassadors, which pretty much reflects the ruling that was made by the european course of human
10:08 pm
rights. well, the ambassadors from 10 countries, including turkey's close allies, like germany and united states, recently signed a joint letter to the church government calling on the government to abide by the decisions of european court of human rights. as you pointed out and released or small couple. now coll kabbalah has become a household name in turkey. at this point, he is the science of turkish civil society of turkish philanthropists activists and a business man who has been in jail for 4 years, accused of inciting violence against the government. first, he was accused of sponsoring jesse unrest and then later on linked to the coo and now espionage charges various different cases. but the masters are finding the evidence flimsy and the calling for his release. now the couple
10:09 pm
a case has been an ongoing story between europe, united states center he u. s. congress, the biden administration, european parliament have repeatedly called for his release, but presently entered on. so this as meddling in turkey's domestic affairs. he was very upset clearly and cooled for the cold, for the inbound orders to be declared persona non grata likely than to lead to their expulsion d. thank well, that's a said to for even by the standards of this current turkish government. but that's clearly whatever to onset. so now the turkish foreign ministry, i think, is trying to find a formula expelling the us and master, and the german ambassador and all the nordic ambassadors that would really stand shock waves through not just turkeys, you know, foreign policy establishment,
10:10 pm
not just get turkey in trouble. with its allies, but also the financial markets, the markets when they opened. right. and so you make an important point it, because obviously turkey has had various diplomatic spots in the past, but there are 10 countries involved in this. 7 of them are members of nato, as is turkey. how could a crisis on this scale affect turkeys relationship with the outside world, particularly the u. s. the e. u and nato. i sang, it would really lead to a sense of marginalization for turkey has been trying to recalibrate, reaching out to normalize its relations with some of its regional rivals recently. and has really been trying to man ties with diverse, particularly with the biden administration that as wide an administration has started out with the policy of cool children,

turkey in its 1st 6 months. but recently there's been greater and greater engagement on afghanistan and other re, regional issues and everyone has been present. everyone has been very keen on meeting president biden in new york. he couldn't during the general assembly at the united nations, but now the meeting was scheduled for g 20 this coming weekend in rome. so the obvious question is if turkey was to declare these ambassadors persona non grata, including the american ambassador, what the u. s. president still meet a president and there do on and if he would shy away from doing that, what would the impact be on dervish markets? right, so why then would he do this at a time of rising inflation and financial instability in the likelihood of the turkish lira weakening even more? as a result of us it's really hard to figure out
10:12 pm
a president. hurdle on is obviously a man who has, who wears his emotions on his sleeve when he's angry. he's angry when he is happy, he's happy, but there's also a stylistic issue. his way of dealing with hard times, difficult time challenges have always been upping. the ante is a risk taker and he's taking a huge he, i think everyone is aware that he is taking a huge mega risk. but a usually a gets the ups the ante escalades of hoping that his counterparts would, you know, sort of take a step back or tone down or offer engagement. this may well be the case that he's also frustrated by this lack of engagement from the west over the past few months, not just abide an association, but also european. well, he is really escalating,
10:13 pm
in some sense by sort of hoping this will do so since you say not, it's a move that risks straining relations even more. thank you very much. appreciate your analysis osler, i dean dash bush from european council on foreign relations. thank you. now it's being held as the biggest blow to drug trafficking. this century leader of columbia's biggest drug cartel has been arrested an operation involving hundreds of police officers. darrow antonio, it was still go, who also goes by the name antonio was captured in a remote corner of the jungle, placed the order with panama. frank, a good to has more. dido antonio was sugars, widely known as a tonio, and had been on the run for more than a decade. columbia's most wanted and most fear drug trafficker. now finally in handcuffs after being hunted down by soldiers, put the world's largest cocaine producing nation. or tony was the rest is the

10:16 pm
running dry. in haiti, the price is going up and the cost for delivery drivers could be that like, ah, route the autumn dale's in the snow, they both had a go at scandinavian bits of gold near call. some damage were that things a surprise? me quite. and there we have still got an autumn storm is nearer iceland is still a bit weaker, but i guess in northern europe, this is a bit more active there, but we'll start with an off and here given the winds and our died that we could have suddenly or southwesterly withdrawing up warmer weather now is going to be wet in norway. the snow is a long way north through finland with temperatures in stock. home in london for example, are on the rise that above noble. this will continue wont be blue sunshine. there will be a bit of a breeze, no b, rain or showers on the way through to all or no europe, but the picture is not

10:20 pm
death of pablo escobar back in 1993, and that is the case for a number of reasons. escobar was a larger than life figure. he was a very public figure on like 14 year old, who spent most of its life in the. nobody really has ever seen them unless, if it was on the pictures that the police have shown since he was the most wanted person here in columbia and ask about also a spent break. li are poor people, important neighborhoods of his home town of me the year, and he became a sort of sort of a hero for a lot of poor people in the country. he had a theme thing, congress. and then he very old for li. confronted this state here, through a terror campaign with bombs that exploded the here in the capitol, booked in the,
10:21 pm
in the very public places, killing hundreds of innocent people. and so away and he died. i think the effect was much larger. now people hear that people we've talked to say yes, this is definitely a significant success for the governmental and most people don't think they will make a great change in the way that the business of drug trafficking operates in the country that might not even make a great to change in the way that the golf clan, the criminal organization that also yeah. lead that operates in the north of the country. not only they moved tons of cocaine to the united states and europe, but they also control illegal gold mining. the legal mining of other things in different parts of the country. they also tax the movements of migrants from columbia to pass on my and the feeling is that the people under him will be able to
10:22 pm
continue with yoga and the station operating in the same way. thank you very much about guitar lessons are important to us. now protest is back in the military of briefly brought to major roads in a bridge, sedans capital, as tension scro between the generals and the pro democracy movement to gases, fired to clear the protested and hard tune relations of salad between the military and civilian sharing power in a fragile transitional government, it supposed to lead to don 2 elections after a long time the, the amount of a share was pushed from the hour and 2019 it, but morgan has more from him. the response comes after the processes in front of the presidential palace where they've been staging assistant for over a week. now try to expand the area of the sits in to try to pressure the government and to dissolving itself. and a new cabinet be formed by the prime minister. now the reason why this page that
10:23 pm
sits in front of the presidential palace is because most of them are pro military. they want the military to take over and take charge of the country. many of them coming out of their that they want the military to handle the affairs of the nation until elections are held because they said that the government is not representative. now, the governor of whom issued a statement just after the dispersing of the protest, saying that those who are behind the blockade of the bridges and the roads are members of the former ruling party, which is out from power on april 2019 following month of anti government process, he said that there are also parts of the group that are participating in front of the fit. and i'm trying to the stabilize the, the country and trying to make it very hard for people to move, so that people can be frustrated to the point that they're drawn into violence. now again, the system has been going on for more than more than a week with processes demanding that prime and it's happening to him to dissolve his cabinet. and that's the result of a split between the force of freedom and change coalition. that's the ruling
10:24 pm
coalition. that is right now running the government. well, in other developments, the u. n. is saying climate change is to blame for intense flooding and south sit on the worst in the region. in 60 years, around 700000 people have been affected and the livelihood of 11000000 more risk. while cyclical droughts and floods are common in south street on climate report. released early this week want of increasing climate shocks across much of africa. i've been daily protest. oh, the severe fuel shortage is in the haitian capital prices have sought and some petrol stations have been forced to close. now gangs have started kidnapping and killing fuel truck drivers. i know raffle airports from puerto france ah, fires burning in the streets of the haitian capital, while protest, super worsening. insecurity, have swept the city in recent days. demonstrations over fuel shortages are also becoming a daily occurrence. there are fears, the city would come to
10:25 pm
a standstill if supplies aren't resumed soon or that was i ended up with the government is not doing its job. they are the ones that you give us security. they should do everything to make sure pumps of petrol. so we can do what we have to do by the plug that despite some gas stations already running dry cues of motorists keep growing as detention at the pump. and when the problem is, the people in government, the richer fighting the pool, some motorists tell us fuel is becoming so hard to come by. it can take days to get their hands on only a few gallons across the haitian capital. many petrol stations have closed their doors all together, creating a black market fuel. in recent days, the price of gasoline has gone from $10.00 to $15.00 per gallon. and it's the cost that's only getting higher as the fuel shortage. worse, delivering fuel to residence has become more difficult as violence linked to
10:26 pm
criminal gangs spreads to more parts of the city. gang members have made a lucrative business out of extorting and kidnapping petrol delivery drivers. you'll transporters are threatening a strike to protest against violence directed towards delivery personnel. women from opera, not very by garza. a reason why there's no petrol is that some of the drivers have been kidnapped previously with their trucks, donors of paid for the truck to be released, but left the driver behind and they kill was given up. that's why drive of now scared to go to the cargo terminal because they may go kidnapped guys. though the recent abduction of 17 missionaries by haitian gang has captured global headlines, violence and kidnappings are challenged, that most residents here face on a daily basis. and between increasing insecurity, fast rising fuel prices and in economic crisis exacerbated by the ongoing. coby 19 pandemic security experts say the situation. is it taking time bomb for social
