5:00 am
as we can to the front line now, the smell of death is overpowering. a lot of the stories that we cover high the conflicts. so it's very important that we make them as understandable as we can do as many people as possible, no matter how much they know about a given chrisy saw issue as al jazeera correspondence. that's what we strive to do . oh, her protest is in sudan faced tear gas, the latest demonstration against the military takeover. ah, and armand is the problem and this is al jazeera life from doha. also coming up, call the 19 causes more flight cancellations, who traveled chaos and hospitals and the u. s. and u. k is starting to buckle under the huge number of infections. at least 16 people drawn in the 3rd migrant boat sinking off grease this week. plus,
5:01 am
i think what i decor large lift off the most powerful space telescope ever build sets off to unlock the secrets of my galaxy. ah, protest as have been back out on the streets of saddam was the 10th major demonstration since the military takeover in october security forces fire tear gas internet services were cut and large areas of the capital. it will locked down. the protest is say, they won't back down. bahama vall has more from cartoon, several of the groups of protest as godhood in the outskirts of come to him on saturday afternoon before marching toward the city center where the presidential policies located below. i'm not sure that these people are going out on the streets to reject this military authority. and als slogans are clear,
5:02 am
but they are no negotiations, no partnership, no bargain. um, so what i did, the army is for the barracks. the militias do not rule us. and we demand the hand over a full hour to civilians. we demand civilian democratic rule, but booklet, it's fun to do. forcing the full text, the city of course, security forces closed on the bridges leading to central cup to me. this, along with an unprecedented police presence in the streets, made it difficult for the dumb of places that balance on one or 2 occasions, however, the clouds managed to get a few 100 meters away from the warmth of the president of police. but they were soon dispersed, several went into the protest. this chanted slogans, calling and military leaders in the ruling 70 council. to see the power to civilians demonstrated thomas to organize another day,
5:03 am
a protest on december 13th. they insist not that they will stop their valleys only when power is completely restored to civilian government, $100.00 funds. i've just come to me. now i want alo is an international law and one of africa expert. he says the international community has a role to play, to resolve the conflict. if the military is to continue on this part, this would put, done what a very difficult the mummy to political and security situation. the international community response, when the military conducted the call to see was very swift, not just no powerful actors who have significant economic liberty. and remember, also most trading institutions such as i am, if we're helping as don economy to transition. so then they understand that the response of the international community, and i think that would put the transition process to military
5:04 am
inability for the position. so my assessment is that they are highly likely to continue on the cause of power. but at the same time, there is a significant international pagan domestic pay that will not allow them to continue to be power or. ready completely hide and control power. so ultimately, i think the military has to negotiate and find a way of calming the patient and on the, on the state in might exactly the same way they did on the 24th of november when they agreed to reinstate hum dog and enter into that power shedding 12 years now and israeli soldiers have injured more than $240.00 palestinian protests of the town of boca north of nablus. that according to the pounds, sitting in bed, present security forces, fire tear, gas live ammunition and rob close steel. bullets demonstrated rallied off the area
5:05 am
was closed to residence. neither abraham has this update from bethlehem and the occupied west bank. there is a lot of increasing tension that's taking place in vertical and an older villages around the north of the occupied west bank where palestinians are saying that they've been left a new family for themselves. and they've been organizing local committees to try and find off the facts that have been on the rise lately, the happenings creasing ever since last week when the power seen some policy and fight as a shot at. and it's really settler's car in the field. one second there and injured others, and ever since then the committee has been marching and trying to get to any legal is really in sacramento home that has been sold from settlers in 2005. but then 2nd is a blue tier and an open some sort of
5:06 am
a sensor there. and this is the location where the 2nd half has been killed and is waiting. sometimes i've been trying to get back to whole mission. they wanted support from their political leadership to kind of have a 2nd instead of it being and, and recognize out who 16 they didn't get that the 4 things been launching as series of protest dot have been ending up, going into pasting in the villages and attacking palestinians, the least of which was also 2 days ago. at least 7 people have been killed by an explosion of the democratic republic of congo. the congress governments of the suicide bomber targeted a restaurant and benny group has claimed responsibility for the attack. but the area has been frequently targeted by rebels from the allied democratic forces via the when i went inside, i saw a movement, a motorcycle turned around. i heard back and i lost control. i didn't know what was
5:07 am
going on when we left the restaurant. that's when i learned that they had been people killed. i saw those alive and wounded being taken to the hospital to the club. 19 pandemic now. and airlines have been full to cancel move flights because a staff shortages, us airlines law and cold officer, the 900 flights on saturday, bringing the total number of cancellations globally to nearly 5000. the highly transmissible on the con variant has seen an increase in employee thickness, airlines calling on governments to reduce the length of cove in 1900 quarantines to allow people to return to work well. many us hospitals don't have enough staff to deal with the high surge and co. 19 cases about 70000 americans were hospitalized as of christmas eve that figures up about 50 percent from early november, but overall hospitalizations for the on the con very, and have remained lower compared to previous trains. health officials have
5:08 am
repeatedly warned the situation may worse and for tens of millions of americans who remain unvaccinated. while the on the convent fueling a surge of quote of ours cases across europe to france, italy and the u. k. have reported the highest number of cases since the pandemic began. anderson's reports into exhausted french medical stuff like last christmas, this intensive care units, in my say, is struggling with the pressure the most seriously ill patients who haven't been vaccinated. like david saba mentioned his wife, esther says she thought she was going to be a widow a few days ago. david's grateful he still alive, usually directs. usually he says, if he'd been vaccinated, he wouldn't have been at this level of intensive care. while all the crown infections seem to have a lower rate of hospitalization, the extreme increases in infection rates mean the sheer volume of cases are quickly
5:09 am
put in medics under pressure while frances breaking record. so 2 is italy. the u. k. has been running christmas day clinics to give vaccinations. the priority is on booster jabs the government's heavy reliance on vaccinations to try and quell the army. crone infection rates is in question. on christmas eve of reco daily figure of a $120000.00 was reached. and now the office of national statistics. is morning the warning 10 people in london may be infected with cove it in the coming days. oh mars christmas queen elizabeth is sure people suffering in britain. they wouldn't be alone. this year though, her focus wasn't on cupboard. it was the death of her husband, prince philip, the duke of edinburgh. she expressed her grief on a personal level, talking of how she missed the man to whom she'd been married. the 73 years with
5:10 am
christmas can be hard for there. she'll have lost loved ones this year, especially. i understand why that for me, in a month since the death of my beloved phillip, i have drawn great comfort from the warmth and affection and the many tribute she, his life in lag. at 95 years of age, the queen takes her immense care to avoid any exposure to the virus. but for so many people, especially in london, that is the case. and the health services now warning, there's been a 40 percent increase in hospital admissions. this christmas is surreal for so many people living in the british capital, the government says that it's watching that data before making any decisions on heavier restrictions. that prediction of one in 10 people here suffering from cove . it is a sobering statistic. the government may well introduce heavier restrictions, possibly before the new year under simmons, how to 0 london. now,
5:11 am
dozens of survivors of a migrant votes thinking have arrived on the greek island of power off. at least 16 people drowned with a boat cat sized. the agency late on friday, is the 3rd, sorry, disaster and greek washington. as many days, officials say people, smugglers are increasingly using a dangerous route from turkey to italy, which avoids heavily patrolled areas around the age and either will petro molnar is the associate director of the refugee low lat at your university. and she says, tragedies like these will become more frequent as integration policies harden in these horrible tragedies really are a symptom of some of the increasingly hard line border enforcement policies that we've been tracking and seeing all around europe and indeed the world. and unfortunately, with increasing border enforcement and the way that you know, different contexts across the world are developing, people are sometimes forced to take more dangerous route. we're really talking
5:12 am
about open water. and oftentimes people resort to having to take a small boat that is often overloaded with people, and these boats are not really made to carry large groups with people, for example. and also, you know, just the basic kind of navigation that is sometimes very difficult. it's very hard for people who are desperately seeking safety. really important for us to remember that, you know, this kind of sharp border enforcement that we keep all around europe in the book called it fortress, europe. it will not stop people from seeking safety. instead, it'll compel people to take more dangerous route to try and circumvent being captured by border forces. and at the end of the day, it's really more about thinking about the humanity of it all. we're talking about human beings that are losing their lives at sea, and it's incumbent upon all of us to think about how we address the root causes that force people to migrate in the 1st place. now flying, carrying the bodies of 16 rocky, my friends who drowned in the english channel has arrived in the wrong family.
5:13 am
members received them at a b. l. a. port, the victims among a group of people who drowned last month trying to reach britain and aid group as far lawsuit against french and u. k. authorities accusing them of ignoring distress calls. still ahead on the bulletin drought and southern pakistan's getting worse, pushing millions to the brink of starvation and a dying profession. we speak to one of the last light housekeepers in south africa . ah ah, look forward to burritos gullies. who with sponsored play cattle, it weighs hello. thank you for joining in. here's your weather report for asia to see you will begin in india where we've got some clouds floating in towards the northwest. that's very likely to generate some showers out of season showers for
5:14 am
new delhi, we look at the next 3 days, 40 percent chance boat. ok. i had set up it to a 60 percent chance on my day temperatures here, little below where they should be for this out of the year. rain is starting to back off across sumatra, still falling, just not at the same intensity. and we've seen a months worth of rain on indonesia as pop. you are island over the past 24 hours. the ne monsoon given us problems once again for vietnam. wet weather, pretty much from hanoi rate down to denying but toward the west. we've got some sunny spells, this includes, you bank hawks, some sunshine and your temperature locks in pretty close to about 30 degrees for the next few days. for areas of japan, some heavy snow for that western portion, those winds will be winding up as well. i think we'll see wind gusts here about 80 kilometers per hour. let's talk about that called. we'll paint the colors on dark, the purple, the lower the temperature, but it's short lived. so this is about the worst of it on sunday. look at solve from minus 6 by monday, 0 and beijing got a high of 6 degrees in the sunshine. can't wait for that. see soon. for the
5:15 am
weather, sponsored by katara always coveted beyond. with taken without hesitation, fulton died for halla, defines a neglected babies to death. beeble empower, investigate, exposes, and questions they use and abuse of power around the go on out here. ah, the me.
5:16 am
watching all of the, with me in the, one of the mind of our top stories, the security forces and saddam have 5 guys protested the capture cartoon tens of thousands of value to call on the military to stay out of politics. the 10 major demonstrations of the palestinian web presence that israeli full of injured $240.00 protest gas live ammunition and rob mcclinton bullets. we'll find demonstrations for rounding and bull coming off to the area was closed due to set direct to the t and from italy and the u. k. have a pull to the highest number of corona bars cases. some. the panoramic began experts, one of the one and 10 people in london could be infected in the coming days. now the volcanic eruption of the spanish island of the palmer is officially over after more than 3 months of davy explosions. the declaration was made following 10 days of low level activity from the cobra va have all cain or destroyed around 3000
5:17 am
buildings and damaged vital farm irrigation systems on the island. now, the largest and most powerful space telescope ever built has been launched into space from south america. scientists hope the james web telescope will help humans better understand the formation of stars and galaxies that are over 13000000000 years old. mano rapids reports from the launch site and crew, and french kiana steps taught. it's a space mission 25 years and the major ah, the launch of the genes web space telescope, the largest, and most powerful space observatory ever build, is one for the history books. mm. as successor to the celebrated hubble mission, scientists say the technology board, the spacecraft, promises answers to questions. we haven't even thought yet of asking. in my dreams
5:18 am
and my hopes i see eng signatures in monetary atmospheres away from our solar system that could hand to the presence of life will be one of the most important discoveries ever using an enormous gold plated mirror. 6 and a half meters across and instruments that operate in the infrared spectrum. the web telescope seeks to lift the veil on cosmic realms that in the past were too distant or too cold for any previous telescope to detect. web is a marvel of human ingenuity made possible through the dedicated efforts of thousands of scientists and engineers, and the close partnerships between more than a dozen countries. the politics, of course, are always there, but there's a scientist which would, you know, sense try to rise above that and say what, what can we achieve together as a common goal scientifically. and that's how we can achieve so much more together by pulling our results is pulling our expertise. but always with one goal in mind,
5:19 am
let's do the most challenging things that are possible to 20 seconds in the flight . the web launch was carried out by the private space firm ariano space, a topic, ari and 5 rocket specially suited for this particular mission. deed, ions 5 as been chosen you to it's reliability. it's like we called but there. so it's capacity to performance. the very specific volume we can accommodate on delta ferrying, so 20 years ago in the early 2000, it was decided that web will belonged by i. and while celebrations are underway, following the successful launch of the james web space telescope, it'll still be a nail biting 30 days before it reaches its orbit. now on its way to its orbit at a location known as lagrange point to some one and a half 1000000 kilometers from earth. wet is on course to redefine astronomy and
5:20 am
begin to unfold the mysteries of our universe. manuel wrap a little al jazeera carew, french guiana, and you can follow the telescopes a month, long journey on the nasa website. it's moving at 2 kilometers, a 2nd. deploy stages over the next 1300000 kilometers. well, let's get more on this. we're joined by tanya harrison. she's a fellow at the university of british columbia is out of space institute and she's joining us via skype from toronto. very good to have you with us on al jazeera. so the head of the james web space telescope mission said after the launch for the easy part is done and the hard part starts now he laughed. but there are literally hundreds of steps which need to work out perfectly for this mission to achieve just some of that goal. absolutely, i think we always assume the launches the tricky part. but james webb has over $300.00 separate deployments that have to happen. and all of them have to go
5:21 am
essentially, flawlessly, for the telescope to function at all from the deployment of the high gain antenna which should happen in the next day or 2. the sun shield, which is the big, shiny part that you've probably seen in a lot of the renderings and the telescope itself. so all of those gold plated years that we saw earlier as well and above that gold plated. so that is a 6.5 meters wide mirror, almost 3 times wider than the prime, the primary reflected on the hubble telescope. what will that allow it to see? it's going to let us see things that are up to a 100 times dimmer than anything hubble was able to see about 10 times more clarity than things we could see with hubble. and we're looking at things in a different wavelength. so hubbell took a lot of images in the visible wavelength range and a little bit beyond bad. but we're actually focusing on the infrared with james web . so that lets us see different types of features that we couldn't necessarily
5:22 am
resolve with hobble before. and we're going to be able to see back in time, so to speak, even further, all the way back to about 13600000000 years into the history, the universe, which is a huge deal because we think it would be universe is only 13800000000 years old. so this gives us a chance to see the university right after it was forming those really early stages . yeah, i mean it's absolutely mind blowing. so as well as you know, looking further into the beginning of time, it's also going to be looking at some of our nearest neighbors i believe, or x or planets. right, and this is something that wasn't even thought of when james webb was being developed because it was actually proposed before we had discovered any extra floor plan. it's plans beyond our solar system. and so it's really amazing to see how far the science has come in the 20 plus years that it's taken to actually design. and finally launch the telescope will be able to actually look at the atmospheres of
5:23 am
these echo planets. and i could tell us if there are any that have oxygen in them, which could hint that there is some kind of plant life there. or if they just look, they could have habitable conditions in general to be able to support life as we know it. tanya harrison, thank you very much for your time there. that is tanya harrison. joining us live from toronto. thank you. thanks so much. now, pocket farm has been spending up to $14000000000.00 a year to adapt to the changing environment. the government has described the cost of climate and justice because its contributions less than one percent to global carbon emissions. rising number of floods in the north drought in the south and changing weather patterns have put millions of people at risk. sol been java reports from cornerstone and southern pockets on millions of capital migrate. and water dries up in southern park is fun. farmers and more districts film on their
5:24 am
phones and the dry spells are becoming longer and the movements more frequent. it's a long off road track to get to their villages, with no government support people in the going stand region are trying to adapt to climb attic changes around them. for generations, people and animals here have used the same water source. these ponds retained rain water from surrounding hills. now some non government organizations are helping increase their water attention capacity. so when it rains, it lasts a few months. 48 reservoirs, but some up to 800 feet deep, have helped more than 74000 people in this building terrain. the in the earth trust says it's use corporate social responsibility funds from large corporations. and there's no government assistance to provide water to villages, bonds like these have help people adapt to the changing climate. but they're still angry of the politicians who represent them saying they only come here for votes and basic services such as health, education and accessibility are still non existent activists. the big landowners
5:25 am
are still underestimating the impact of climate change with killing the abductions common. here they say it's risky to raise their voice for basic rights. here that is all we need schools, hospitals, and roads. but our most important necessity is water. and about a month this water will dry up and we'll have to travel far to get some our children cry of durst when we run out. and when pregnant women travel for water, many faint and is no near by health facility, gaily lives become tougher here as yearly rainfall has dwindled, a car says during the time of ancestors, water was plentiful, but now it runs out and many people are forced to migrate and then be delivered, and you don't need to like 360, not even a road, but we are desperate for the water for ourselves and our capital in minutes to say it's not possible to reach everyone is focused on is among the top 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change, focus on cash strapped. government says it's
5:26 am
a victim of climate injustice. we estimated between fixed and $14000000000.00 a year that we have to spend because a forced application. it's not a choice. we have to be, we are forced to adapt to climate change and these funds come come out of our practice held out of education out of governance. so i think this is the area where the world needs to wake up because this injustice cannot continue with some help. people are adapting, harnessing solar energy has meant there's been diverse migration in some villages. having electricity is like a medical for the, with the family. they can finally book after daylight hours for crazy and we have electricity now and the children can study. but we still have no water or gas, so we have to carry water on our heads. but despite all this, some of our villages have returned as there is electricity. here. small scalable
5:27 am
projects can be adapted for larger communities if there's political will and money . but focus on what challenges are complex, multifaceted and time is running out to address them from a majority to their correspond, southern pakistan, human rights groups refusing the mas, military of commission and massacre against civilians as it intensifies and offensive against rebels forces. the child remains of $38.00 people have been found and kaya state witnesses, se villages including women and children, were round off and shot dead, save the children shout, he has to have it start missing in the area. now margaret stuck at the mexico border, spending christmas hoping for a better life in the united states. those seeking asylum remained in mexico after president joe biden revived a controversial policy from the previous administration. it forces refugees to wait in mexico while their applications are processed and immigration court. now,
5:28 am
most of the wolf lighthouse is now manned by robots computers and apps, and hardly any by people. the job of lighthouse keeper is a dying profession in south africa. just 6, remain from the miller met, one of them in cape columbine, 45 lighthouse as a dotted around south africa coastline. and for passing ships and fishermen, they offer a vital beacon for navigation. this lighthouse at cape columbine on the west coast was both in the 1950s. it's one of just 60 manned by a keeper. it's the 1st landmark of the southern african coast, seen by ships traveling from europe. wayne brown has been here for 17 years to be like dusky. this is actually a blessing for me. for a personal point does that does that might be the times change and so does
5:29 am
technology. wayne is one of the last few lights, housekeepers in south africa. we, we had a radio beacon with the old moscow with people, with the most coat that changed. then they had the gps, and from the gps had changed to s. yes means what? a metric identification system. the light from the 15 meter tall lighthouse is magnified violins which on appeared day can be seen as far out as 32 nautical sea miles. that's almost 60 kilometers. when says he takes great pride in keeping the length clean and working at its best. the lighthouse stands above the west coast village of pots and auster known for its heavy gales and thick fog that obscures the coastline. this like actually turned to motors, but in the old days it works like a grandfather. clock. the light does keep a must come up during the night. it is 3 hours. you must wind it up for this light
5:30 am
to turn it on. but nowadays, with 2 motors that it could do in the old, in so on. the light is now also automated and if anything goes wrong, head office is alerted by an app. even the traditional fog who doesn't require manual labor, it automatically misses of the is humidity, blasting warnings when necessary. but wayne says nothing can replace the human touch. it's a sad thing and also a bad thing because if you, most of the space with, you know, like us keep us on that look bay to be honest. the 1st lighthouse in south africa dates back almost 2 centuries. this lighthouse in cape town is the oldest in south africa, and the 1st slide keeper began working in 824 back then the light was powered by oil and lay to gas and all the work was done manually. but advances in technology mean a light keeper is no longer needed if.
