the south african government is complaining about the way it's been treated since identifying omicron part of a foreign ministry statement reads like this. this latest round of travel bands is akin to punishing south africa for its advanced geno mac sequencing and the ability to detect new variance quicker. excellent science should be applauded, not punished for me. the miller reports now from johannesburg, while the south african governments urged people not to panic, many or worried, especially as some continue to rush to leave south africa. my family generally as a whole, is ready, deflated by the entire situation. disappointed not feeling as though wishing catch a break, we haven't seen each other. the 3 as many have struggled through a slump of the economy because of previous travel bands and lock downs. and the now uncertain about how the new army cron variant will affect them. some been civil

leveling and, and then let's go and get vaccinated, especially people my age so we can protect ourselves. that's all i can say. i know we all have our opinions about the vaccines, but on my side, i want to get vaccinated. but there's been a slower than expected vaccination rate in south africa. slightly more than 40 percent of adults have had at least one job in terms of um, vaccinations. oh to oh it's it's some of choice with little bricks. needle nod whitlow too, too. too much or 2 people to get in did he did big sneezing. if his point, cuz the living in luke avila excuse, do full drug look right now, his administrative beginners, and as soon as possible as the holiday season approaches, the tourism industry had expected an increase in visitors, many of them from the u. k. and europe to bring in millions of dollars worth of

braving the toughest conditions. with the advent of winter, they need covers. it is true, many relief agencies have come to help from us, but their contributions remain very limited. the total number of internally displaced people in the profile of medic alone exceeds 2000000 that represents more than half of all those displaced across human estimates about 4000100 fund. i'm just the widow of a south korean dictator known as the butcher of glen ju, has apologized that his funeral for the pain inflicted during his rule should do one, died and soul. on tuesday, at the age of 90, he seized control in a $979.00 coo and said him power for nearly a decade during which dissidence were tortured and political opponents repressed. shouldn't never expressed remorse. he was condemned to death in 1996, but was pardoned. we spoke to kimberly mckee, who was among more than 60000 children, sent abroad during sean, who had one's presidency. i think for me like many adoptees and other folks who are
3:25 am
affected by what the political situation in south korea, we are thinking about this the lives and the future that were lost in terms of those who are adopted out from korea to not only north america but also europe and australia, sometimes it's too easy to consider sort of adoptees, myriad of emotions and feelings around being sent for adoption as angry. rather, i think it's a little bit more complex because so often we don't talk about the need for family preservation and the reasons fueling, the relinquishment for adoptees, which included economic prosperity and lack of social welfare support. and so what you're seeing now with the adult adopted community, both in korea as well as abroad, is a greater effort to both support unwed mothers as well as change sort of broader narratives around why children were placed for adoption. so when thinking about international adoption at that time period,

3:27 am
a family who for years had been rumored to use violence and corruption to transform the country into what many now considered to be a norco state. in the case of the president, in the case of one or lumber members, all he has to do is answer one simple question. the june that know that your brother was trafficking arms and co came into united states. you were the president, you were the most and foreign person in the country, at least in theory. you didn't know when a landlord and then this became president of honduras in 2013 and in 2017, he would go on to win a 2nd term in office, despite a constitutional prohibition against reelection. in under what international monitoring missions characterized as questionable circumstances. in the 8 years president wander, landlord amend this has been in power. political observers argue his government has letty dismantling of democratic institutions and the siphoning of public funds for
3:28 am
the political gain of the ruling national party. one of the most recent and emblematic pieces fraud and corruption under the watch of president and man. this is the case of the mobile cobit 19 hospitals using the pandemic as a pretext, the government made a purchase of 7 so called mobile koby care use at a cost of more than $60000000.00. from what metallica on dr. catalyst manya, president of the honduran association of medical professionals, tells al jazeera the case is one of the biggest scans ever pulled by the government and, and directly resulted in the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands of 100 citizens upon his f agreement, the less oh, manilla, one, the, it's a crime against humanity when you rip off an entire population that needed health care. when you steal public funds. when you look at this and see how people died in the street, and in the trial centers over a lack of oxygen, it definitely amounts to a crime against humanity. and some day those who did this will have to pay the
3:29 am
consequences. oh, according to national human rights groups, the poverty rate in honduras is also grown significantly during the it and then this administration inter are leading to a historic exodus of migrants fleeing to the united states. and as general elections draw near the challenges of improving conditions and honduras are becoming ever more apparent than you will go with whoever wins is going to inherit an extremely difficult situation. economically, with the health crisis, obviously the pandemic with the economy trying to rebuild the trust of investors not only for him, but also naturally. and of course rebuilding all of this legal framework which has been destroy. it has been debilitated in an extreme manner by the last 8 years of one of the franchise. for his part, president mondays has maintained his innocence instead touting how his government has reduced the national homicide rate. in
