any cartoon, let's start hebert with word that caught him. airport is reopening. yes, indeed. we spoke to the civil aviation authority director who said that the airport will open at around 4 pm local time. that's around 14 g and said that afterwards. slice can resume their operations. now there has been a backlog because lights were canceled since monday morning when the military then re enforcement to the airport and started from operation. but there's also questions about how many workers will be present, how the operations will be run. because of the calls for protest and for a general strike of civil disobedience by the forces of freedom and change coalition. they've called on people, people on civil workers, both at state and federal, federal and state level, to join the growing movement off of protest and general strike thing that they want to make it clear the military that they want a civilian transitional government. they want to see the political figures who have
12:07 pm
been arrested and continue to be arrested with more arrests happening on tuesday and on, on wednesday night. they say that they want to see what started on tuesday night. so they want to see those people who are being arrested, release the politicians, and the members of the dissolved sovereignty council and executive council who arrested monday morning released. so this is all reason concerns about how many workers will be there at the airport, how the operations will be run and flight companies will feel that it's safe to return with calls not just for civil disobedience, but more protests around the country and the capital. here what's the story on oil workers and potentially joining the civil disobedience was massively important in sudan. yes, the oil sector was already freezing challenges before the military take over on monday and the strike that has been called for by the state or workers. now for more than a month, oh, it was important for me within a month, the main port that brings in or through the rest of the country, port sudan in the state was blood by processes who say that they want a part of
12:08 pm
a peace deal that was signed in october last year, cancelled before they open the 4th. that for it is it to be opened despite all the changes that have been happening. and today, over the past few days. and the ministry of energy in the government that have been dissolved by the military council had said that the petrol reserves and the all reserve were running low. so with oil workers are joining the strike and the civil disobedience caused by the sudanese professionals association. and the forces of freedom and change coalition, the concern that we will see more more aligned mark he was in front of petrol stations. people already queueing up when the news of the military takeover came in . they see that they were worried about the coming days. there's a lot of uncertainty, many did not know what was going to happen in the next few days. so people were queueing up at bakery than at the fuel station because especially a fuel station because of the news that the military is taking over. but also because of the news that the oil reserves will also own workers, safe work state work is joining. the strike is led to increase the panic among civilians here and the capital one other parts of the capital. thank you. have

a morgan the latest from sudan, the of the us government is trying again to extradite the wiki leaks found a really nice sounds from the u. k protested, denouncing the extradition are outside the high course in london with that to day hearing is being held a lower court previous the rule that songs not be sent to us on mental health from the face of 18 chances, they are related to the publication of secret military documents, nothing baba reporting from london for us today and looks like plenty of people still very interested in the case of julie. nice orange absolutely, i'm sure you can hear some of virginia hassan. just supporters behind me. his father has already entered court, and he's a fellow wikileaks found a christian reference in his address. the crowd asked as his partner stella morris, with whom he now has 2 children. she said she saw him on the weekend and was worried about him. he, she said it is very thin. of course, as you were saying,
12:10 pm
it was on a health grounds that the judge at a lower court earlier this year said he shouldn't be extradited to the us. so that is significant because since then the u. s. lawyers have tried to introduce other factors which might change the circumstances around julian sounds is a mental health. and notably the fact that he does have those children and for a bit more own way this case could go. i'm joined by stefan sim out of it from amnesty international stefan the u. s. has a given assurances do the u. k. that julian assigns will not, in fact, be dealt a crew of harsh punishment in the us and that he could even be jailed in australia for example. what do you make of those assurances? well, not so much the, i mean if tuning assigned to is an extra large america,
12:11 pm
he could face detention conditions which could amount to torture under international law. now the assurance is given by the americans and saying that they won't put him into special administered tension, which is, is one of the, the lulu, the descriptions of these mexican maximum security facilities whilst they may sound good. they also reserve the right to reverse that decision, and therefore that kind of undermines any credit policy to those decisions. also, we saw last month on the yahoo news report that are over 30 whistle blowers from the cia and the u. s. government had said that the u. s. under might compare, had allegedly plotted to kidnap or even assassinate gillian fashion that further undermines any credibility to those assurances. and i also raises questions about the political motivations of this whole call that we're seeing here. i want about
12:12 pm
the wider arguments what, what implications would face have for, for free speech and for journalist activity, journalistic activity. if the extradition goes ahead, well, they are very grave. i mean, the implications here for free speech or massive. this isn't about one man, this is a much wider implications. but really, in a fashion, as a publisher was doing something that we journals to as a regular on a regular basis, which is part of our our job is to find information which is in the public interest and of government going, doing potentially. and to bring that to the public, and if journalists all stop from doing that, and another worrying thing is about the jurisdictional issues, the fact that america can choose to go off to someone who is not american citizen who's not in america and to try and expedite them on the expedition laws. now, this is a deeply concerning issues amongst which amnesty have repeatedly raised both with american authorities. c amish political. c services that on some of its thank you very much for your time. well, just
12:13 pm
a reminder that today the court we hear from us lawyers tomorrow juliana sanchez defense, will be given the chance. and it could take several weeks. in fact, for the high court to give its ruling, but whatever it does that could then be appealed at the you case, supreme court. so this could be a lengthy process, not in barbara's reporting from london today. thank you. 9, a brazilian senate committee has recommended president john wilson aro fights criminal proceedings for the way he handled the pandemic. it calls on prosecutors to put balsam arrow on trial for charges ranging right up to crimes against humanity. sentences say many of the countries, 600000 karone of our estates could have been avoided. the committee also wants the president's band from social media for full si lincoln cove at vaccines to h. i. v. wonky in ocoee of now monitoring developments from neighboring argentina. this damning report was approved,

12:20 pm
the army intelligence headquarters at 6 g m t. this morning. he did not show up. he has, has refused to show up saying that he will not be the only one to be questioned. he believes that the other party involved in the cautious the she r has bella, movement to their leader hatton, the seller should be questioned again. and now, josh, how's the lawyers are also filing a case saying that the military judges decision to summon him is illegal because when the army passed the case transferred, the filed to the military court, there was no reason for the army intelligence to get involved. and it's not just that there's a lot of concern that he is a politician. he is a civilian. why is the case being decided by the military? in fact, human rights groups have criticized the military courts in lebanon as being politicized . they say that judges are not independent because they answer to the defense ministry. so people here feel that their leader is being targeted politically that
12:21 pm
the judge is going after him a single in him out, because this is a party that is the most staunchest and vocal opponent of has the law and has been in its allies now control the the, the political order in lebanon until those classes really were a dangerous escalation. now, the investigation further a, creating a divide polarizing this society, southern region of madagascar is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years, pushing more than a 1000000 people to bring your family. this is according to an the international report where says, 4 consecutive drops of white dot harvests and claims lives. the number of children with life threatening malnutrition, as a result is also quadrupled. the un says not against god's close to experiencing the world's 1st climate change driven famine. we spoke to mark hobbin about the through the climate change expert at these trading national university and it's vice chair all the i p c. c, d intergovernmental panel on climate change. he says world leaders need
12:22 pm
a comprehensive approach in aiding countries most impacted. i think we need to look at those vulnerable countries which include places like madagascar, and it's vulnerable because it's a combination of, of social, economic and climatic factors. and so we need to take all of those as a package and see what we can do to, to support those countries deal with these sorts of changes. and, and one of the problems that we see with things like drought, to some extent is drap seeds on itself. is that a drought and makes things harder because there isn't the moisture to evaporate and cool down the landscape. and that because it's hotter and that tends to dry the air out and that tends to dry the landscape out more and was more heat. and in the process, of course, it reduces agricultural productivity. and we've seen that in madagascar with people being a forced to eat food stuff that they normally wouldn't eat. and of course,
12:23 pm
that then causes disruption of different types socially and asked us to phrase the social fabric and reduce the ability of that country to act in a way that supports all of the of the inhabitants. and so we can see these things building on each other, and that's why we need to take a comprehensive approach in meetings like the black guy called in iraq at least 11 people have been killed by i still attack as indiana province. they used hand grenades and machine guns during their assaults on the village of al, how usher a u. n. report published early this year, estimated around $10000.00 ice will find his are actually still active across iraq and syria despite their self claimed caliphate collapsing. israeli forces of arrested 16 palestinians across the occupied west bank including 2 children. the raids mostly happened in the palestinian village of beard alba and jeanine. video shows people's belongings strewn across the floor. after these ready soldiers

12:25 pm
the conflict in ethiopia. these are the things which currently have the world's attention, but the urgency of those crises as overshadowed other long running humanitarian emergencies is particularly dire in syria. yemen in somalia funding though is scarce. our diplomatic editor james base as well. any, the humanitarian situation in afghanistan is already a crisis, but the un fears that if there's a total economic collapse in the country, it will become a catastrophe. conditions of worse and to in ethiopia, where the effects of conflict now spread well beyond t gray. the to crises now threatened to overload the whole humanitarian system. other conflicts from syria to yemen to somalia continue to cause immense suffering . these wars have not ended, but they're no longer at the center of the world's attention. and international donors seem to have forgotten them. for example, the current un humanitarian appeal for syria is funded at just 36 percent. the
12:26 pm
figure for molly stands at 32 percent. it's clear that not all humanitarian crises are created equal. some get more attention from the media than others, but the bottom line is that they all need to be funded. those countries that can afford it need to show global solidarity. i. one of the biggest global humanitarian organizations is the international committee of the red cross. the t c o t y is the i c r, c's representative at the u. m. we definitely have a crisis that, that gone for many, many years and there's a certain donor fatigue god that also poses to us and challenges at the same time. we also come to the point where quick a quick fix center and humanitarian bandaid solutions are not the response that needs to be brought in because it is really the capacity to tackle
12:27 pm
broader issue that we actually bring more. we live to the people in a matter of weeks at the beginning of december, the u. n. will finalize its humanitarian appeal for 2022. last year they asked for record amount $35000000000.00, and it's already clear that this time the figure will be considerably higher. james bays al jazeera, at the united nations indigenous communities across ecuador have been protesting against the government's economic policies. they demanding the president reverse of rise and fuel prices, and are angry as well about plans to double the amount of oil and mining exploration in the amazon. theresa bo reports from the province of caught the poxy south of the capital. kito have ready to means wake up in the local key to indigenous language. and here in the province of got a back scenic, whether it is what indigenous leaders are asking their people to do. oh,
