2:05 am
the you for months, thousands have been entering the block through bella. ruth, at 1st via lithuania and latvia, now mainly through poland. the e. u has accused bella ricin leader, alexander lucas shanker. of orchestrating wave. upon wave of undocumented migrants and asylum seekers in retaliation, they say, for sanctions it imposed on his government over its violent crackdowns on the opposition court in the middle of his brinkman ship. those attempting to escape the harsh conditions they find themselves in it, no shelter being to steer towards poland by bela rusty and state border officials. some had taken the chance after hearing that bela was him travel agents were selling these invitations to the you only to find themselves surviving for weeks in the forest that border, poland, and belarus. but yet we will give us the cut of the year. they provide the didn't then, but when you say when, when you said to them, ok,
2:06 am

borders between mexico and canada have also reopened. in addition to po for vaccination, people will also be required to provide a negative coffee 19 test live now in the us mexico border where john holman, is he's joining us from t juana. so what does the reopening of the border there mean for the people in tihano way you watch on it means a lot of excitement actually to the people that live here. and that's because this city, tiquana and i, i should to say i to be, we're in the suddenly seen through which is the busiest border crossing point in the americas. you can see the cars sort of rolling down here going towards the united states. so united states checkpoints, united states officials here, and the people that live in this city, tiquana, they've got a really cross border lifestyle. they've got call to the if you're a resident into one or you can go 25 miles into the united states. so a lot of people do that for their shopping, where they want to go to restaurants when they want to go to cinema and krishi when

2:09 am
yeah, interesting me, it's actually probably more crucial to them than to the people on this side in terms of livelihood. some things like that tiquana has been fairly active, still grow the pandemic. and that's because they still been a peep from the us coming over here to keep one of the flow of united states nationals hasn't been stopped by mexico. but since the flow of mexico national to be right night to states has been stopped, a lot of businesses in san diego and sign the seeds role that's rightly of the side the base have suffered as a result of that. one about teams went earlier on this year, they just wrote, wrote of close businesses, hundreds of them that been close down to now hopefully with this sort of pumping rows of cars that are going through that they'll be able to reactivate some of the local economy in sunny seeds, rural san diego, and again, this will be a for i being buddha crossing point. thank you so much for that, john,

2:21 am
city, has gil, at least 26 children? it happened in the city of merante, near the border with nigeria, pfizer school spilled from framer both straw and wood, common, but rarely result in casualties. 20 students died in another school fire in the m a in a pro us freshmen voy for the balkans. gabriel escobar has been holding talks in boston and has the coffee now with members of the presidency. this comes after the bosnian serb leader announced france establish a separate army within the country. that violates the 1995 days in peace agreement which ended the boxing and conflict. dramatic shy and has more from sorry of the usaa and voice to the region. guerrero escobar met separately with each of the 3 members of the bosnian presidency. after those meetings, they all came out with at least one unified statements, which was an insistence that there would be no armed conflict. there would be no war whilst the crow,
2:22 am
as both members of the presidency insisted that the rule of law, the constitution i. e v. data agreements which are brought about the end of the $990.00 s war. and essentially it sets out how it wasn't good enough should be governed, that they insisted that this should be respected and not everything would be working within the framework. miller, i've done the serve, representative in the presidency. i had this to face one or some premier on on not sure what i've noticed is that he considers our objections to be our frustration. yes, of course, we are frustrated, deeply, frustrated by the lives that have been often told to us that the state is governed by the rule of law. the constitutional court, as i said, is an inquisitorial court that made decisions outside the constitution. and this cannot be tolerated. so while nodding also insisted that there would be no arms conflict. he did, however, say that he was going to push ahead with withdrawing republic a serv, scott,
2:23 am
part of bosnia herzegovina, withdrawing it from state institution saying, quote, unquote, it would take care of itself. now this seems to be contradictory through the messages of no conflict, because the only reason why people were talking about the possibility of war was because of the structure withdraw from states of students and form essentially his own militia, an armed group that would be unconstitutional outside of states organizations. so the crisis while that seems to have maybe settled slightly due to the verbal assurances given by the us and voice as well as politicians within the con. if the other continues to push ahead and actually physically withdraw from those major states institutions, particularly the courts, particularly the security services, then that means some sort of a conflict could very well remain on the horizon for my georgia president. because my gosh, really has been transferred to prison hospital. he's been on hunger strike in jail

2:25 am
the united states has already not only said that it won't recognize these elections, but also that it will impose stronger sanctions on the ortega government of the european union, as said the same latin american countries from chile to here in costa rica and said they will not recognize that government either, but the real question is, what is going to happen next? and how would that impact are what is already in increasing flow of migrants outside of nicaragua and increasing the, shall we say, lack of hope that things will change any time in the near future on the part of the nicaraguan people who according to the latest gallop poll, oppose. daniel ortega, at least 80 percent of the population. china's willing communist parties holding a leadership meeting that will lay the groundwork for the 2022 congress where present cheating being will seek a 3rd term. katrina, you report some beijing about 400 of china's most powerful officials are meeting

2:28 am
use. this is planning to elevate herself above previous leaders. it's likely that his version of recent history will be accepted as the official history of the party, and he will further strengthen his power base, critic se, there's great danger in this. generally the what we are seeing a resurgence of authors theresa with work or one that combines the solid idiology, nazi germany and even previous japanese and italian models, you're right along with china's own tradition with her that she what this means, that in face of criticism from all over the world people, it is very difficult for it to react, flexible in that to react with a real openness among the seclusion i believe it is the greatest the threat to the chinese communist system. now, the 40 gathering will also include discussions on who rural place, other top leaders, including the premier, starting next year. katrina you out is irritating. time is running out fast. the
