9:30 pm
about vaccination, because it is the best tool that we have. and i'm also saying to those who are doubtful that vaccines are safe, they're been proven to be so, and they save lives. every one of us needs to practice the basic health protocols get vaccinated, get vaccinated is what the south african president tells his people, reminding them that they are safe. he knows there is hesitancy out there and reminding them that this is the best weapon we have against the army. current variant against all of cove at 19 south africa's president 0 rama, post speaking are corresponding in johannesburg. is family to miller. and he said that there is no scientific justification whatsoever for keeping these travel bands in place at unequivocal about that and the damage that it could do to south africa
9:31 pm
. and essentially the keys statement from the president, esl rama poor. so around some of the actions that have been taken against south africa and other countries in the region that the travel bands are unjustified. and he also said we are deeply disappointed by that router that's been taken by other countries. given that there's very little scientific evidence to justify that kind of reaction he's addressed to night to south africans has revolved around the 2 key issues. one get vaccinated, as you said, that's the main way we can protect ourselves. we've always expected variance will always have variance. covered is here to stay, get your jab because the one of the concerns is that not enough people in south africa have been vaccinated. just 41 percent of the adult population. and then the 2nd issue, really, i think as a message to the countries who have bad travel from southern africa is that we are
9:32 pm
not going to lock down south africa is not going to increase restrictions because we don't believe there is significant scientific evidence to allow for that, so, so a lot of defense, i think he said this a little bit earlier if i meter in defense of the scientists and south africa who sequenced and, and brought the attention of the world to yona con variant and saying, you know, their heroes as well, their people, any, to be recognized for what they've done not punished for and that's precisely what many of the experts and scientists in south africa saying . and i think also the world health organization. as also said, they recognize the work that south africa has done in terms of genomic sequencing and watching out for any changes in the coven, 19 of virus. this evening, the botswana government announced that the number of cases they had risen to 19 of this particular variant. and why i'm mentioning that is because it was in south
9:33 pm
africa that that mutation was detected, those cases coming from neighboring botswana. and many of the scientists here say, trying to equate our good work with us, the country, south africa being responsible for mutations. it is completely unfair. we're doing the best scientific work we can do. and we need to really look at the narrative around cov 19. and how southern african countries in africa as a whole, is looked at. it's tough for me to mila marvin johannesburg for us. but following that address to the nation from president, rama poor sir, ah, well, people in honduras are heading to the polls to vote in a tense presidential election. a countries bracing for potential violence as candidates look to asked the right wing national party, which is rule for 12 years. president, one, orlando, and,
9:34 pm
and as is not seeking re election and has chosen a successor. he has been dug by drugs, trafficking and corruption scandals in recent years. manuel rappel alive in honduras, capital, tennessee. gov. a sounds like it's time for that. the moment is right for change and for, for people to make their voices heard. that's how many people are seeing it here in the capital city of there. was he as a command? many people wondering, waiting as the polls opened at 7 am. now the way begins to see whether not the country will be heading toward a radical lea, different political direction than what they've seen over the course of the last 8 years. or if it will be more of the same. the polls opened here at 7 am, where at up one polling location in at a public school in the capital city of think. lucy alpa, the little cues outside of poli, locations across the city have been quite long, which is quite encouraging. given this expectation that there would be violence on
9:35 pm
the streets linked to the elections. as far as we've been able to see that has not been the case, there was an expectation that many people who may not turn out in high numbers given these rumors, given these a, this of this impression that people had this tension that people had that there would be violence out on the streets. now we should note that while the part public participation is quite high, there's a massive mistrust of the electoral process that has everything to do with the elections of presidential elections that took place 4 years ago, under which electoral observers from a international electoral observers said, were achieved under questionable served circumstances, fraudulent circumstances on part of the ruling national party. now there have been a you e irregularities that we saw when we 1st arrived here earlier this morning with namely, a malfunctioning of certain biometric scanners that were part of an investment made to reduce fraud in these upcoming elections. forcing the pollsters to resort to
9:36 pm
paper ballots the same way that was done last year. but as far as we can tell, and what we have heard from electoral observer so far today is that things are running smoothly despite that underlying tension that many are feeling over that expectation that there could be violence on the streets has not been the case. so far today that's man, while robin reporting from texas golfer. thank you. manuel frances minister for overseas territories is visiting the french caribbean island of guadalupe where there's been days of rioting and protests against new cove at 19 restrictions. hundreds of health workers rally to on sunday against plans for compulsory inoculations and of vaccine pass. the french government that is open to discuss giving guadalupe some autonomy in running its own affairs. his natasha butler. she's in plunder paper in guadalupe. what's coming out of this visit
9:37 pm
was going to be interesting to see just how the french minister of overseas territories are, is received and got lou, because for many people, his was a, comes late, the unrest and the strike. so started a 2 weeks ago. and the fact that he's only arriving now is being seen as an example for many people here of the way the paris treat squad loop. some people say as 2nd class citizens, how it ignores the issues that are happening here. in fact, one protester, atom, march on saturday, told me a 3rd such a situation had flared up on the mainland. a minister would have been dispatched within hours. well sebastian, look all new is expected on his arrival here to meet with police officers. frogs, the sent over hundreds of extra police forces security forces to try and calm the situation. i hear in guadalupe,
9:38 pm
he will then meet union representatives and authorities. here i'm from his point of view. he's already said the paris is willing to look at some of the issues that have become a voiced by the protesters here so that things like jobs are the rising cost of living. also perhaps offering what leave the possibility of more autonomy in the future or from the unions point of view. what they are hoping for from his visit is as i said, more help with prices cost of living very high. indeed, here, more jobs, especially for young people salaries. they want those to be a heightened and also they want mandatory vaccines for all health workers firefighters. those kinds of jobs to be scrapped. thought is something though. at this stage the french government says it simply won't do natasha but the reporting from guadalupe. thank you, natasha. no more than 200 u. s. diplomats intelligence operatives, military officials, have all experienced unexplained neurological trauma. that's for some of them to
9:39 pm
leave. they korea's, the, by the administration is investigating, but says it doesn't have answers as to who's actually doing this. i'll state department correspondent rosalind jordan has spoken to one of the earliest victims of what's become known as havana syndrome. cia officer mark palmer, romulus, went to moscow in 2017, for meetings with russian intelligence officials. paula morales never thought he'd come back to the us with a career ending traumatic brain injury. it's been 4 years of a 247 headache, which is, you know, not always a painful, physically, but just in from a mental health perspective. it's pretty, it's pretty debilitating. so while i've gotten better now, because the treatment i received at walter reeves, national, intrepid center of excellence, starts on the world's leading traumatic brain injury programs. i'm still not there yet. i'm still suffering. paula marolla says he woke up in his hotel room, dizzy ears ringing and suffering. a neverending migraine,
9:40 pm
a year earlier. diplomats at the u. s. embassy, and havana reported similar symptoms. at 1st, the u. s. government considered the cases anomalies, but 5 years later, at least 200 u. s. government officials and some of their relatives are struggling to recover from unexplained health incidents. also known as havana syndrome. the by didn't ministration says these cases have spurred it to find the cause. when you sit down with, with our people in here, ah, what's happened to them? how they been affected? ah, it's very, very power. and it only reinforces in me the absolute conviction that we need to do everything possible for our people to care for them to protect them, to get to the bottom of what happ the assumption the officials are being attacked with weapons that use lasers or microwaves instead of bullets,
9:41 pm
similar to what's being demonstrated here. the injuries have turned up in vienna in bogota and guam, joe, and in hanoi, just before vice president comalla harris's visit in august. some speculate russia is behind the attacks, a charge the kremlin denies. still, cia director bill burns recently warned moscow there would be pay back if true the trumpet ministration also blamed cuba expelling some of their diplomats in 2017 mark palmer, romulus and his lawyer believe the government should tell the public. all that knows. we don't know what the intelligence community knows truly about these incidents and if revealing certain information, when caused our country greater pros. but i like to think that hopefully we are the victim and solely the victim in the situation. and that we have something that we
9:42 pm
can do in response, dr. say the cases resembled the traumatic brain injuries us forces suffered in i. e . d attacks during the iraq war. congress recently passed the havana act to make sure the injured get the care they need. but it doesn't address the growing unease, some feel about serving abroad. mark. paula morales says the cia has stood by him in the past 4 years, but he wants the us to send a message. these attacks won't be tolerated if it is an act of war. and so we're gonna respond appropriately. so i don't think this is just simple sanctions. absolutely. you don't want to start to when we're re over this, but there's gonna be have to be some really tough measures taken against your adversary. you know, if it's russia and this is, this is, this is serious business now. a call to action to protect those who thought they knew the risks that came with their jobs. rosalyn, jordan elders, era, washington,
9:43 pm
welcome and glen call to the news on our former deputy national intelligence officer for trans national threats with the c i a, he's with us from boston. i call this a trans national threat. it's been going on for 4 years now. is it surprising at all that more progress hasn't been made in 4 years, or is this really something completely new and a complete mystery? why i think both statements are true. it is surprising that the u. s. intelligence community and investigators haven't been able to make any progress so far as we are aware of it is at the same time a new iteration of the kind of nasty world intelligence can, can be prior to the distance of the havana syndrome attacks will call them any number of my colleagues were victims of different kinds of harassment, whether it was poisoning of dogs or,
9:44 pm
or slashing of tires or brushing them up and so on. so in a way, this is a new iteration of the old war. but the gentleman that you put on the air this before roblis spoke correctly, that it is an act of war. but although i agree with his call that there have to be consequences and director of the cia. so there will be, you can't do anything until, you know, one what has happened and to who has done it. and we don't know. and even when slash, if they find out what it is and who's done as, and it seems to be a lot of focus on russia. anyone could just deny it, couldn't they? you know, we could be in the sort of never ending circle of like, i don't know you, if i was, i mean, never knowing where the russian statements are meaningless. the russians will always say that they are not guilty of anything. and that america is guilty for everything. it's so i don't think we need to worry too much about when they have to
9:45 pm
say. but it is a and almost unsolvable dilemma for policy makers. because as the gentleman before said, the officers, a victim said, you don't want to start a world war 3 and you don't want to do nothing. so what does a policy maker do? somewhere between there that might dissuade and yet not intensify the crisis. if i say one more thing should have assumed russia don't know, but i think it is a reasonable assumption. you have to look at what countries would be capable and have engaged or might engage in this kind of behavior. and there are very, very few. and the most capable and most motivated are rushing right at the end of rosalind report. she talked about people knowing the risks of what came with their jobs. is this the kind of risk which you think could put people off from wanting to
9:46 pm
get into this line of work? oh, well no one wants to suffer neurotic neurological damage. of course, no soldier wants to be wounded or killed. but soldiers and intelligence officers and diplomats, i understand that it is a dangerous business as we choose. and i think it will dissuade some from pursuing the professional. but many others understand that although you do your best to avoid any sort of harm, that the risks in our calculation are justifiable for the greater cause. so i don't think there will be too many earnest weight gain. cal, always interesting, talking to you and getting your perspective. thank you for your time. and the time to the conflict in ethiopia ticker, i think, which is now spread to other areas, including ne and afar,
9:47 pm
a region where most imports come through. i'll just here is the 1st international news channel to gain access to the region since the fighting began. mohammed pathological from us is to channel al jazeera arabic was live on air from the town of chipper when this happened. and i'm out of the medina. i am now standing in the heart of shifter city. i didn't that it has been debbie center of military operations during the past. 40 days. i had a very name much hi denny. hi. this is the situation that you can and how much you'd better take shelter. it looks dangerous. okay, i'm gonna hi ton. this is the situation we have been seeing since we entered the city. i just was one of the 1st to arrive. we were the 1st team of journalists to enter the city. this is a mountainous area and what we heard was gun fired exchange. the scenes we witness
9:48 pm
are very appalling. that bodies everywhere on the street, it is a living proof of the ferocious ness of the fighting. there are clear signs of the lack of humanity in this conflict that the grand forces were driven out of the strategic area by militia from the far region. the cities, commercial shops were totally destroyed, even the mosques were not spared. we have been hearing gunfire from all directions over the bus for hours. all the residents have fled for their lives and the city has turned into military barracks for their 40 fighters. those militia are supporters of the fuel, be an army. they have seized the city and their advances towards body and combo chaff. the international community you will need to step in of the humanitarian situation here is really dire. as a result of the fighting, the dead should be buried at the earliest in this small city like you can imagine how the situation would be when the fighting goes to larger cities within them. how to provence. thousands of people are on the streets of senegal, capital for the great decant carnival labrat face paintings, fire ages, musicians,

9:54 pm
a couple of years ago. it was very important to him that the 400 or 500 stoffer williams height she were looked after because he saw as a family em and he wanted them to, to live on. and i think it's because he treated the team in such a kind hearted way, but he was so driven to succeed and wanted to do everything that he could is why they would say successful. but it was an over sale success. he'll say face some terrible times and he lost the ease of his legs after series congress. and then as i previously mentioned, the death of at and center as well. how do you think he was able to carry on in his voice off to such adversity? frank was perhaps one of the most driven people that i've ever met. when his back was against the wall. he found another level to bit to be able to, to step on when at and passed away. thought really hit him really, really hard of see when he had the accident as were on as well when he was on his way and touched you on a marathon. he was very fit and healthy person. it was very important to him to,
