and as far away as possible from the main roads leading to, to gray. so it is still a walk in progress to grind. rebel fighters have committed rape and other abuses during their recent advances in egypt and conflict. that's according to a new report by amnesty international. the rights group says it's documented 16 women who are right told gang raped at gunpoint by to grind fighters. local authorities say that number is much higher. amnesty says the acts described would amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. ponens prime minister has accused russia of orchestrating the wave of migrants trying to enter poland through bella roost. the humans refugee agency says it's alarmed at the situation on the border. it says thousands of vulnerable people must not be used for political purposes where we challenge reports. yeah, those go in the middle of every humanitarian crisis. there are always human faces.

border. prime minister, mateusz more of etzky, has been visiting troops. nations license with amazon, who would think 23 months ago that we would be dealing with actions that are characterized by the use of human shields. as lucas shankar regime uses civilians, weapons in a hybrid war. what we can see today on new methods and you are a bastion against the nova. germany is urging e u. member states to do more so far, there's been little coordinated action from you, though that might be change a president called on member states to approve extended sanctions against the bella, russian or authorities. and she also announced the exploration of measures against 3rd country airlines that are active in human trafficking. several people along the border have already died from exposure. there could be many more to come, rory, talents,
8:09 am
how to 0. ah. now analysts say the pledges that countries have made at cop $26.00 to tackle climate change would still lead to a $2.00 degrees celsius temperature rise this century, that's far more than a $1.00 degree limit. they've committed to around a $140.00 countries coming. 90 percent of global emissions have announced targets to cut emissions. the climate action truck group says many of the pledges, lack practical detail and short term plans. we are making progress at cop $26.00, but we still have a mountain to climb over the next few days. and what has been collectively committed to go some way, but certainly not all the way to keeping 1.5 within reach. the gap in ambition has narrowed. now the world needs confidence that we will shift immediately into implementation. that the pledge is made here will be delivered and at the policies
8:10 am
an investment will swiftly follow. when only andrew simon spoke to iceland, environment minister who thinks the cop 26 climate talks could be making some headway, more intense negotiations, taking place in this building. and they're getting longer, more involved and more tense. that has to be said, that's what we're hearing from all sources. that's so much to play for here as a lot of things to do and not a lot of time to do them in with me right now is one of the representatives of a small, the smallest states iceland, the environment minister goodman, the good branson. thank you very much for joining al jazeera. welcome. thank you, and tell me this. how is it going? how does it look? i would say i'm more positive towards a battery. so i was a week ago, and i based on the fact that there hadn't been some improvements when it comes to
8:11 am
the n p c. and when it comes to contributions of country and trying to reduce that greenhouse gas emissions. and also we, we here and we might be likely to close the financing cost to the developing countries, the $100000000.00 promise that was made here. the president of the united states of america bomber referred only on monday to the disappointing action of russia and china and not being here and saying that that was crucial. they were there with it was dangerous, it was dangerous, dangerously lacking that response. what do you say to that, and what do you say to that, coupled with the that the pressure that the lobby groups, the fossil fuel nations are putting on the whole affair? first of all, obama also president obama also said that has been made progress in 2015. and i agree with him because a lot of businesses, a lot of countries have stepped up their game. there are countries that still need
8:12 am
to do better. there are countries that are responsible for lots emissions and you mentioned china and russia, we could say australia and all this as well. and i'm really hoping that they will, like we all need to do a step after the game when, when it comes to climate, this is a u. s. judge as rejected a request by former president donald trump, to stop the release of documents tied to the riot on capitol hill in january. trump's lawyers argue that telephone records visitor logs, and other documents were protected by executive privilege. investigating committee wants to see them to determine from potential involvement in the riot. the judge decided it was in the public's interest to release the documents that spring and bill snyder. he's a political analyst and public policy professor at george mason university bill. good to have you with us. so this seems like a k, a win 4 congressional oversight looking into the january 6 insurrection. how significant is the routing below? what does it mean? well, it is significant because it was
8:13 am
a very explicit ruling by the judge. and she pointed out, and this was the key sentence. presidents are not kings, and the plaintiff in this case, donald trump, is not the president. he was trying to exert executive privilege retroactively over over documents that pertain to his own presidency. joe biden is this said that he would not exert executive privilege over those. he's the president and what the judge said is we have a unitary executive, only one person at the time can be president. and that's president biden who has refused to exert executive privilege over these documents that bill, how much does the issue of public interests play into this case? i mean, does the american public have a right to know what's in these documents? and if so, what does former president trump really have to hide? well, that's the question that a lot of americans are asking. why is he trying to hide this information? because the suspicion is that he was very much involved in an attempt to subvert the constitution. and to overturn the electoral process in the united states,
8:14 am
namely to namely congress his role in confirming the electoral vote. that's a very serious and grave affair. what president biden has said is that this is an issue of grave public importance equivalent. the judge said to watergate and to 911 to iran, contra, and therefore it's great public importance means that that's more important than executive privilege, especially retros retroactive executive privilege for a former president bill. let's remind ourselves here because donald trump was a president that was impeached twice. he escaped punishment. so if the committee finds he did indeed have a crucial role to play in the attack on the capital. what happens next? well, what is next is he has to decide he's going to run for president. and again, he has hinted that he was considering it. he may run in 2000 in 2024. and the polls show that his party would consider him the top contender for that he
8:15 am
could become present. and again, present biden's ratings right now, rather low. if he doesn't run for reelection, they'll believe republican, the democrats will probably nominate his vice president, carmella harris. and that could be very close election. everything is at stake here because president trump insists that he will be vindicated. and he is seeking revenge on his enemies. and he considers this entire and pursued and attack by his enemies. most not always good to get your inside. thank you very much. do the talking to us. sure. lots more. so to come here, not just there, including the us job, attends a major ruling against drug make a johnson and johnson the 2nd blow in the final pharmaceutical companies responsible for the of your crisis and back where they belong, france and we're used to honda of a dozens of ancient african autos. more in that stance. ah
8:16 am
hello there. let's have a look at the weather across the middle east and event, and it's turning more unsettled the farther north we go. we've got a wintry mix blowing across the black sea bringing snow to easton areas of turkey that will move across the caucuses and into northern areas of iran. by the time we get into thursday. and some of that rain is going to be felt into iran. if we look at the 3 day, the temperature is going to dip down by the time we get to saturday, there will be showers in some of those showers will trickle down into northern areas of iraq, few showers as well for q 8, but further down south it is looking a lot finer and dryer with temperatures sitting at where we expect them to be. now, as we head over to north africa, it's looking increasingly west for algeria for to new zia, thanks to a storm that's brewing in the mediterranean. we are going to see some heavy rain come into play and we could see some flooding with that. but it does dry up slightly fortunately,
8:17 am
or by the time we get into thursday. for the south of this is we had to central africa. it's not as wet as it has been recently for the heaviest showers. we have to look to the republic of congo anger bond. we could see some too intense downpours here in the days to come up for southern africa. it them, bob, we am botswana that will see the wet weather in the days to come. ah, question the narrative. you don't have ways to check whether d. c. mason e squeal are not. you don't have any way to verify. identify who is telling the story that those device and these are multi national corporations that are interested in profit, anticipate the consequences. the media was complicit in perpetuating this myth. i'm here to tell you that i think that many people died because of the lifting pace, deconstruct the media. on out this era,
8:18 am
lou ah, welcome back. a good amount of the top stories here on the al jazeera, the humans calling for the release of 16 of its local staff, detained in ethiopia, capital addis ababa. it comes at a time of escalating conflict between ethiopia, central government, and rebel forces in the countries north. ponens prime minister has accused russia being behind the wave of migrants trying to enter the country through bella roost. he says moscow's actions threatened you stability. and they say the pleasures that countries have made at cop $26.00 to tackle climate change would still lead to a $2.00 degrees celsius temperature rise. this century, that's far more than the $1.00 to be limit. that's committed to now the top caught
8:19 am
in the us state of oklahoma as overturned a $465000000.00 o. p are drooling against drug make a johnson and johnson. the pharmaceutical giant was accused of feeling the opium epidemic, which has killed more than half a 1000000 americans through deceptive marketing. well, maria glover is a professor of law at the georgetown university law center. she says, while the decision is significant, it won't necessarily impact cases in other states. it's certainly significant, especially since it follows on the heels of a decision out of california last week that also rejected claims against johnson and johnson and other manufacturers under public nuisance theory. so if you're thinking about settling with johnson and johnson, those settlement offers look a lot more attractive in the wake of the california decision. and now the oklahoma decision, it's not significant in that it doesn't tell us how other states might come out
8:20 am
on the same issue. because public nuisance law varies from state to state. but to the extent that this very narrow interpretation of public nuisance law by the oklahoma court, which was very narrow, narrow, or even in the california court, that that would, that will affect other cases. the federal issues involving the satler's are not applicable to how a state would interpret its own public nuisance law and other states are free to and will be presented with the opportunity. if these cases don't all settle to interpret public nuisance law under their own states version of that law in future cases, there's not enough money in the united states, much less the settlement to a b o b with crisis. so both the removal of this money from the abatement plan for now, as well as the delay of paying out anything to update, the crisis is significant for everyone trying to fight the pandemic and all the
8:21 am
families affected by the pan. now a new report says human rights abuses, including killings and torture by me and mars military could amount to war crimes since february, who hundreds of thousands have been displaced and 3000000 in desperate need of aid . the group fortify, right says soldiers of you civilians as human shields and used forced labor that's in the worst effect, a state of current. it also says the military has blocked life saving, 8 women and children. the u. s. envoy for the western balkans are sought to calm fears of war in bosnia herzegovina, despite her renewed, pushed by bosnian serbs to succeed. daniel escobar says political leaders have played support for a peace agreement, but ended fighting in the region 25 years ago. the 3rd member of bosnia has joined presidency. miller, my daughter is pushing for republic. a search go to see, liana millionaire has more not from banner luca in bosnia herzegovina, stanislaus brain, of each and miracle shadow, which presidents of 2 main oppositional political parties in the public. a
8:22 am
subscriber sent a clear message. after their meeting with gabriel escobar, they said that they don't peace accord is a base for everything in bosnia herzegovina, and that nothing can be changed unilaterally. they think that all political parties in the entire country should discuss all issues that to bosnia and herzegovina, clearly has. and that the right place for this discussions are the institutions of bosnia and herzegovina. they also said that our millard dowdy is trying to prolong this political crisis so that he would keep everything going until the general elections next year. and they also think that a he is trying to put to focus on this so that public and media wouldn't discuss all the economical issues that this country has up. gabrielle ask about also mad to with the now they've got to breelle of each who is the president of republicans
8:23 am
subscribe national assembly. and this meeting is particularly important, sends all these announcements. builder daddy has made during these previous months should come to life in a national assembly. however, a parliament members will discuss our some conclusions in which it is stated that the government of the public a sort of sky will make all this possible to come to life next year. not now and be oppositional parties in the public. a sub scott think this is the a clear sign that me orthodontic doesn't have any serious intentions. with this political crisis, the war bank says things are dismal and getting worse for people in gaza. new report shows unemployment in the besieged strip stands at 45 percent and there are particular concerns about the high dependency on social aid unemployment in the
8:24 am
occupied, westbank is 17 percent. and the world bank warns the palestinian authority is challenging. financial situation has left it unable to borrow from domestic lenders . the world bank expects overall growth of 6 percent in the palestinian economy this year, but says this will likely slow in 2022 count on chunk of the world bank come to director for the west bank and gaza. he explained why officials need to reduce the budget deficit this year around that the high vaccination rates that's been an uptick in the economy. so there has been certainly a rebound for up to 6 percent of what is going to happen is that these 2 are, are struggling with a huge deficit off $1400000000.00. and why, why the, why there's been growth. it's not sustainable with this huge deficit. that's the reason we are projecting that. it's going to go come down to 3 percent unless the
8:25 am
whole huge deficit is address. the palestinians do not have access to international market. they do not have that currency and they do not have a monetary policy. so the instruments which they have very limited. so hence, we would be would need support from donors, from the government of israel, and certainly the bank is doing is bit and there's also actions with the palestinian authority, which is, which is doing i'm and there are some extremely important reforms recently we need to give them credit, i'm at the same time. we also need international donors. that's been a huge drop off in international don't assistance this year in particular. so i think that all the all parties needs to come together to be able to support the palestinian people. 7 violent protests in bolivia against a new law meant to tackle elicit profits. several unions on political groups have
8:26 am
gone on strike, accusing the government of using the law to target critics. but if your socialist government says your position partner who has been growing political divide in the country, since it's formally the even morale is resigned. in the wake of protests in 2019 general electric cars, announce it spitting into 3 public companies. the u. s. multinational says it wants to simplify business, reduce debt, and boosted share price, spit marks the end of an era of the 129 year old company, which has been a global symbol of american business power. these companies can much, much more. li, cut the debt that they want to cut and then focus on their own businesses. and that really is what, what can help a company turn things around. i mean it's, it's, there's a lot, i guess, another, but there's a lot of companies that are carrying a lot of debt. so the fact that g is, is making these moves. now is a very smart move because we're going to see more companies do it in the years to
8:27 am
go from some benign have reach an agreement to return 26 historical artifacts to the african nation. the deal between the manual micro, i'm going to president battery so long was done in paris, some of africa, most significant artworks were looted by french colonial troops. back in the $900.00 century natasha buckler has more from paris of quite an emotional scene at the least said the french president, the manual macro and the presence of benito patrice tunnel, holding a ceremony to formalize the return of the 26 artifacts to benny, macro said that this was a breakthrough moment, and his stoic moment as these artifacts would embark on the journey home. the presence of benito said this was not just about the restoration of these works to been in. this was about painting. regaining some of his soul. he praised him out of my call for breaking the 2 of restitution of our works. now the
8:28 am
$26.00 alt was comprises various objects. we thought about fact use palace doors as even a throne. they are known as the album, a treasures, and they were looted by french colonial forces in 1892 from west africa though then brought to paris, where they've been in various museums ever since for over a century. most recently, they were displayed to assa museum in central powers, the people to see them before they return to benito. so the french president minute mycroft. they're already wrapped up therein crates. they're at the airport. they all ready to go. they will leave at the same time as the president has been in and they will make their way back home. and this ends a very long process which started several years ago. what allows them as a professor around topology at shawnee state university. he says, the effect of the artifacts is a reminder of africa, of colonial pos, their part of the colonial history of africa,
8:29 am
dating back from the and $900.00 century when much of africa was looted, not only of its natural wealth, but also of its cultural. and wealth as well. i'm in this particular case, he was a officer, a british explorer by that i think the name of james phillips had tried to enter the kingdom of beneath him at edge he breaks out and in the process he ends up being killed. so that the british and a punitive expedition to benign and in the process also managed to loot. so these fantastic treasures i believe is over $3000.00, possibly $4000.00 objects from this large collection floating around the well to bay in various collections, private and public collection of public museums like the the women in france in berlin, in germany. obviously in the british museum in the u. s. and math and so on, so forth. and add like all these countries and nations. and since the end of
8:30 am
colonialism, they've been calling and demanding for the return of their cultural property and death. this is a happy day, i believe, for, for the people have been in bed. they are going to get some of their objects back. a small ark 26 items. i believe it's an ongoing process and look forward. seeing more buzz pretending, ah tougher check of the top stories they are now to they are the you ins. calling for the release of 16 of its local staff, detained in ethiopia. capital at us not above comes at a time of escalating conflict between ethiopia, central government and ripple forces in the countries north. as far as i know, no.
