12:02 pm
let's start with the latest orders from the present. shoot without warning. how is that going down? how's that being received? let's talk about that 1st. of course. yes. well, he has only just come off the air. but these are, these are, this is really tough words from, from the president of catholic stance to that he has personally given the order to fire without warning. and he said we are dealing with terrorists and bandits. they have to be destroyed, and it will be done shortly. and if you order it off with the s t o support in order to restore the constitutional order, we did ads that their mission was for the short time that they would not be that in indefinite. they would be there for a short period of time. certainly this is a very difficult speech, i think he's had to give to the people what's,
12:03 pm
what was disappointing for those who weren't reforms and that they seem to be lumped together in that he referred to civil society groups and others that had been somehow responsible to being behind, they may have some very much fighting aggressive talk from the president fighting aggressive talk from the president out the street. i know it's difficult to get information out, but do we know a protest going on the streets come down? well, the internet is still down across substantial parts of the country, and almost certainly you now mattie, where most of the violence has been taking place and we know how difficult it is right now for ordinary civilians. a lot of people have been sheltering inside their homes because there are a lot of ammunition. a lot of live rounds are being friday, and that is affecting people's ability to do basic ordinary things. we've seen cues
12:04 pm
outside bakery stores. we seen cues for bread cues outside agile stations, both the fuel people are not able to make electronic payments without the internet . so people are really, really struggling, as you get a sense of that. when you look at the tensions when you see what's happening on the streets, you can understand why it's taking a look now at my, my report of what's been going on in our matter. because it's don's government calls. it's an antique terror operation, military units on the streets of cassock, stones largest city al. matty authorized to use lethal force against protesters. earlier, some of the protesters overran police units and distributed weapons. security forces have confirmed at least 18 officers killed in more than $700.00 wounded. the number of civilians dead or wounded is unknown,
12:05 pm
but video circulating on social media appears to show morgues, filling up with bodies. this is violence on a scale not seen in cassock, stones, modern history, including mass looting of businesses. her fuel price rises, provided the spark. but these protests are about longstanding and legitimate grievances, economic and political stagnation, and corrupt authoritarian elite. anger across the country has been directed at the official leader of the nation. first president, no sultan, as a bi of his statue toppled in the city of talbot called gun. his whereabouts are known on thursday, president tor kaya took an extraordinary step, inviting a russian led military deployment to secure his authority,
12:06 pm
solicit apologize, under this collective security agreement. i have to they appeal to the leaders of the c s t o to help catholics done deal with this terrorist threat to recover. it's no longer a threat. what's happening is undermining the integrity of the state. cherished escape. flying in russian troops under the guise of the moscow lead security block . the c s t o could prove decisive at brussels has urged moscow not to exceed its mandate. it goes without saying that such intervention should respect the sovereignty and being dependence of catholics. many in kazakhstan will be wondering, which is worse, the violence or the prospect of their nation depending now on russia to keep the peace. so while i'm trying to figure out at the moment the reasons behind the president to request the c s t o assistance and perplexing to many why he would so quickly ask for foreign troops on catholic soil and,
12:07 pm
and how it happens so quickly within less than 24 hours, and we understand now that troops off lying in mainly from, from, from the russian contribution. but also from bella bruce from menia and antique hist even. and these are, these are all members of the c s t o. the reason seems to be that with dr. justification at least let's say is that she has identified these protesters as groups of bandits as terrorists. and that would allow for him to invoke the, the cfo article that would enable him to bring in foreign foreign troops. but are these really foreign funded terrorists if he is made out or are they are the democracy defendants? are they people who want to see reforms in this country,
12:08 pm
or are they armed warms remnants or billions to the former president knows who knows by and he's met his people who control still significant parts of the country or, or who are allegiance to him. it said mr. president, so kind of may not be giving away all the information that he has and, and it's costing the story in a particular light in order to have it brought in the c s t o foreign peacekeeping force. there is an awful lot of confusion at the moment, especially with the internet down. we will endeavor to, to try to update views with information about what's happening cuz it's gone as we can as soon as we can get it. all right, thanks so much. robin foster walker can body as prime minister is become the 1st foreign leader to visit me in moments, re rulers homes and says he's there to help. and the violence that's been going on
12:09 pm

12:10 pm
uncensored she. and when meant the former president who had been locked up since eric, who in february of last year, what he does in to achieve it is really quite hard to determine. his foreign minister said in statements a couple of days ago that myanmar currently has all the ingredients for a country which is heading toward civil war. i think perhaps the best way to view this is through the lens of hans and himself. he's a leader who's been in power for 36 years. he's just nominate his, his son, his successor. he seems to be preparing to step down. but if he could step into the, into this very difficult situation and cast himself in the role of peacemaker, it might give him a legitimacy and a legacy which will go beyond just the boundaries of cambodia itself. and put him as a really significant player on a global stage. nonetheless, it is a very complicated situation and it's one which is fraught with danger.

12:19 pm
straight in government is insisting tennis stall, novak junker, which is not being held as a prisoner. he's in quarantine in the melbourne hotel where some refugees and the silent speakers have been held for years. joke, which is visa was revoked when he arrives. authorities rejected his exemptions from pandemic entry rules. mr. chuck, this is not bank hill held captain in australia. he is free to leave at any time that he chooses to do so, and waterfalls will actually facilitate that in relation. so you and other people who are in immigration detention with are they in, in white hill in melbourne or whether it be else way in australia and those people are they because they don't have a dollar and these are all they are here illegally. he in australia for might be a number of reasons, and we treat all people who are in the immigration detention daily.
12:20 pm

12:21 pm
our soul applied some awful. so brian, early, this is the moment when jock of each is about to realize his entry into australia is blocked, his visa revoked it isn't a tennis court, he's going to instead, he's waiting for a court hearing on monday that will rule on his deportation. for now, he's in a government quarantine hotel. his mother is outraged. they are keeping him is it really is just not very human. i just called if you will be down as we are. i love you to be a joke of each had a medical exemption to let him play at the australian open tournament later this month. otherwise, the tournament is only open to the fully vaccinated exemption caused a wave of anger among australians who still face some of the toughest travel restrictions in the world joker, which is well known as being against vaccinations. another big name in the sport,
12:22 pm
believe joker, which has himself to play in some way. i, i feel sorry for him. but at the same time, he know he knew the conditions, things are a lot of months ago. so the action against juke of each is also causing a diplomatic incident therapy, as president describes it as politically motivated. michelle was the called, the true it's l. obligation of the state to protect interests of our citizens were dedicated to that. what not now is that this is a political persecution that everyone is taking part interest. even your strain in prime minister jock of each had thought the path was clear of his attempt to the 21st grand slam. instead, he faces what could be a road block, and with it a world wide debate on whether he's been really treated and re simmons out there. or album roseville. he was a senior official, is australia's immigration department. he told us more about yoko,

12:27 pm
