12:05 am
but legitimate protests. now risk being stamped out by shoot to kill policy robin 1st, see a walker al jazeera. let's just take a closer look at the russian lad military alliance, sending troops now to cause it's dawn school, the collective security treaty organization. it was formed in 1900 to 6 months after the collapse of the soviet union, and has often been described as an eastern response to nato. the group includes russia along with 5 former soviet republics, armenia, batteries, cause its don caregiver on and to g, kissed on they conduct training exercises and oversee on sales. but this is the 1st time in the organization's history where it's agreed to deploy troops to a member state, to refuse several requests in the past, including one from kyrgyzstan in 2010 and in armenia last year. article 4 of the charter says it will only do so if one of its members is threatened by an external
12:06 am
force will be u. s. x ray of state is saying that he is concerned about the need for russian lead troops and context on we were encouraging everyone to find a peaceful resolution and constructive resolution to the situation. when it comes to the cfo, we have questions about the nature of the request. why it came about were seeking to learn more about it. it would seem to me that the conflict authorities in government certainly have the capacity to deal appropriately with, with protests, to do so in a way that respects the rights of protestors while maintaining law and order. so it's not clear why they feel the need for any outside assistance of full strong scales as senior fellow and the russian eurasia program. the canadian down there for international peace joins us live from washington by skype festival this
12:07 am
morning from the president. that that is a shoot to kill policy in place. what impact is that likely to have on the rest? well, it certainly is very concerning. i think the shoot to kill a policy is, is particularly geared towards the violent protesters. there's 2 types of protesters here, and there's those normal people that you showed in your, in the very end of the clip. these are, you know, young men, young women, old older, you know, bob, grandmothers and other people like that, who really want deep systemic change. and then protests about us been hijacked, particularly in the city of almighty, by a group of violent thugs, probably criminal elements. it's not quite clear who these people are, but they're using the protests as a means to sort of terrorize the city and loop the city. and so there's basically 2 different movements. there's a peaceful protest movement and a non peaceful protest movement. and sadly, it seems like the government because it's done, is merging those $22.00 groups together. what does that mean for the peaceful protest as, as a likely to be further loss of life?
12:08 am
i hope not from what i hear particularly now my to you the big city where the violence is occurred. a lot of the peaceful protests have just gone, gone home and they're hunkering down. but you know, for the long term, you know, i do think there's a clear desire for greater systemic change coming from the people cause like stung . and i, but there's also a desire to return order onto the street. and so what i think you know is going to happen is there will be order returned of the people will, will probably appreciate that. but then in a couple months, they're going to expect some sort of answer to their calls for systemic change. and we'll see whether that comes about or not. conflicts on has a long history of promising greater socio economic equality, promising, improved governance, promising opened opening of society. but they've never lived up to that promise. and in fact, it's become more oppressive over the last few years. and so, you know, that's really what is driving the anger on the street. and then there is this
12:09 am
violence element that is really unclear where it came from. interesting remarks from secretary state antony blink. and earlier on trying to strike a balance between the need to restore law and order in some kind of stability while at the same time, protecting the rights of peaceful protest as how will the intervention of russia affect the prospects systemic change you talk about i think it's going to complicate the prospect for systemic change for the 1st reason. when the government, whenever the government of, of conflicts on is going to look like in a few months. it's going to be more dependent on russia. russia is the country that came in in his short up the government, presuming it it's days and power. and so they are going to be no more beholden to, to, to russia. that could complicate any desire and any real initiative to push for the changes. there been some harsh words coming out, you know,
12:10 am
not only against the so called terrorist, these criminal groups. but also again, some of the more moderate opposition coming from the president as well. so he's promised numerous times already to open up the political system, but he's numerous times failed. he's promising that that might be in the cards again. but his rhetoric doesn't, doesn't, doesn't really follow that. and the fact that, you know, russia is involved with russia is she, you know, showing up harsher authoritarian regimes. it doesn't give a whole lot of optimism to me that they're really move ahead. but the systemic changes. can i increase the level of violence on the streets, potentially, to what extent is that the, the, the violent unrest, dimension of, of the protest movement being fueled by a struggle for leadership. i think there's a lot of concern, a lot of lack of clarity over who is in control of these violent groups and who is backing them. so what appears to be happening is there appears to be both
12:11 am
a bottom up of protests in the bottom up descent, and then there are, you know, elite and there's a big, there's been a big power reshuffle in the country. mr. to kai, of the current president has removed virtually all the people who are loyal to his predecessor from the government. so this is more than just a bottom up roles. there's also a lot of the lead politics, you know, shifting here. and it's not quite clear it looks like, you know, mr. kyle is, is the one who's, who's ahead. but you know, down the road. there's going to be a lot of other decisions about how the economic resources are going to be divided. so we really don't know how this is going to pan out, but i think you know, 1st they need to restore order and then conduct start is going to be on a very long trajectory to try to build up and re stabilize the country. thank you very much for joining us from washington. paul, strong sky of the carnegie endowment for international peace. thank you. will in all the developers, nato's true gentle, is warned that the russian threat to its member nations remains high. for minutes
12:12 am
to spoke about, the russian military build up on the border with ukraine on a video call. tension has been rising and recent months between russia, the us and european nations president let him push in is expressed unease about the organization's expansion and weapons deployments. in some former soviet states, the russian military buildup has not, not stopped. it continues, and there are gradually building up with more forces, more capabilities. we see armored units. we see artillery, we see comma to the troops. of course, that center message. that there is a real risk for a new on conflict in europe. but that's a fact they want is so important. engage in dialogues. algebra is jona hall has more details on this now can stolen those comments throughout that press conference . very much pointed to the substance of the foreign ministers meeting
12:13 am
a short while before, which was an opportunity for them to talk about russia and ukraine, but principally to align their positions against one of them. the british foreign secretary, this trust, called russia's unacceptable aggression towards ukraine. so that the secretary general could come out afterwards and project this sense of sort of unbending unity, strength and determination by nato. in the face of what he describes is the real risk still of a russian invasion. he pushed back again against russia's notion, this demand really by president putin, for legal guarantees to be given that data wasn't ever take ukrainian as a member that it won't expand any further east eastwards to take in other countries like georgia. and he said, you know, there was a pathway for dialogue and diplomacy to go along potentially a positive one. but he said it was important to, to prepare for it to fail. and for a clear message to be sent to mister putin. if,
12:14 am
if they failed, the consequences would follow specifically politically economic and financial sanctions. as we've heard all of this preparatory really to senior high level meetings next week between russia in the united states in geneva, on monday, also between nature and russia council on wednesday, they haven't met for 2 years. a potential there to move things along. if this unity can be upheld and if this message can be clearly projected to president putin, the consequences will follow otherwise. and that's, i think what mr. stoughton set out to achieve this afternoon. or also watching ethiopia closely the government there is implied, there might soon be a breakthrough in the ongoing conflicts in its northern at tegra region. now, on a statement, the government said it will begin dialogue with to grime political figures. this after announcing the list of promo opposition leaders to be released from prison. a 30 mob conflict integrity between the army and rebels has divided the country left
12:15 am

12:16 am
william bryan, was also sentenced to life that could seep parole after 30 years. the sentence is come nearly 2 years after the men chase down, unarmed, and nod aubrey before shooting him. a joke. well, le, let's just speak to mike hannah. he joins us now from washington. might tell us about the reaction to the sentencing. well the man day 3 sentence for felony murder, which is what these men were convicted of is life without parole. and that judge had to decide in the course of the sentencing hearing whether or not he was going to allow parole in these cases. now, family members address the court during the hearing, and they made very clear that they wanted the maximum sentence imposed. we heard from his father, from his mother and from his sister. and they insisted that the judge must impose
12:17 am
the maximum sentence. they should be no parole whatsoever, while the judge chin outlining the reasons for his sentencing made clear that he thought that the 3rd convicted person william bryan showed some remorseless, made a bit of the difference in terms of the sentencing with the father and son pe, you sentence both of them to life without parole. once again witching, the wishes of the family, william bride though the 3rd convicted person, he presented to life but raised the possibility of parole. now the family members have welcome judgment as have the lawyers gathering outside the courtroom at the moment in the wake of the sentencing hearing. but the legal process is not over yet for the 3 convicted. they all hate crime charges which will be brought on a federal basis. next month. the judge has given them the right to appeal, which in all likelihood they would, however, the legal process will continue. and this time on
12:18 am
a federal basis with hate crimes charges being brought against them in the coming month. all right, thanks very much from washington. mike, hannah, well, us supreme court is considering 2 major white house policies as covert cases continue to spike in the country. justices weighing out whether to block or rule enforcing vaccines and testing for large businesses. the outcome will affect more than 80000000 people. challenges. argue the rules exceed the administration's authority while government lawyers say they'll prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and deaths. nearly 207000000 americans are fully vaccinated and more than a 3rd of the people have received a booster shot. meanwhile, india is experiencing another covered outbreak with daily new infections there more than doubling in 3 days to a $117000.00 government is now imposing tighter restrictions including mandatory home quarantine for all international passenger arrivals. now these ties new
12:19 am
measures apply even if travelers return a negative coven 19 test at the airport. the chief minister of our sam, state ne, in india, is that the all cases of virus will be treated as amik wrong. the surgeon, new cases comes after a number of important religious festivals and gatherings over the holiday period have been taking place. last year the delta variant overwhelmed the health system. poverty miss al is in new delhi. what does basically means is that everybody who now flies into in del, when have to quarantine at home for a week. and then on the 8th day to a lab test, test for the virus and upload the results on a government portal. so that authorities are in the know also remember india already mandate passengers to test the full boarding of like and to present and negative tests. now many states already had their own travel restrictions. but what's been happening is that
12:20 am
a large number of passengers who have been coming from abroad have been testing positive on arrival just a couple of hours ago. there's a charge of flight from room that arrived in the city of more than a $170.00 passengers on that flight tested positive on arrival. now the state of been goal had suspended all direct flights from the u. k. it also went ahead and restricted domestic life from jelly and moved by 2 of the hardest hit cities. and now the state requires all passengers from outside the state to present a negative test. before arriving the state of canada in southern india also has a testing mandate for some passengers coming from certain states. so like my roster and go, and some other states that have high coven, 900 cases moon, by which again close to 20000 mach in new cases, has already been testing all passengers. upon arrival. meanwhile,
12:21 am
200 british military personnel have been deployed to hospitals in london to fill staffing shortages caused by a surgeon covert cases. thousands of doctors, nurses, and all the health workers are off every the sick with the virus, or they're having to isolate the world. college of nothing has described the situation as a crisis, saying that government can no longer dismiss it. a dean bama is outside a hospital in central london. winter is always a very stressful time for anyone who works in a hospital like the one behind me anyway with illnesses such as flu, more accidents and so on. so we heard, or if in the week from bars johnson, the prime minister that he didn't want to bring in more restrictions, even though while the car was continuing to spread quickly through the population. but he did admit that what he said, but the chest, the national health service, would be temporarily overwhelmed. well, it depends what your definition of overwhelmed as to whether that's already happened. new statistics suggests that more than 3700000 people in the u. k. would
12:22 am
have tested positive for coffee, 900 last week. the real figure could actually be higher because testing has become quite tricky in recent weeks, or people having trouble getting hold of kids. but anyway, the situation is now the government says that 200 members of the mature you're being asked to help around london hospitals. only 40 of them, a medics. the rest will be helping with things like checking people aiden, but it's very, very small in terms of what's needed around the country. elsewhere in germany, any people have had a booster shot are going to be able to enter a restaurant without. also having to show a negative test comes is the countries chancellor aims to distribute $30000000.00 more boost vaccines by the end of month to combat a search in cases more than $56000.00 new infections are reported on thursday, nearly 3 times the number recorded a week ago,
12:23 am
the only com very now accounts around 44 percent of cases. and then there's been outrage in anger in the chinese city of yan, of the treatment of people under the strictest lockdown in the country. says he lead is of praise. the success of the restrictions aimed at stamping out and outbreak of the delta variance. but as katrina, you reports several incidents aimed at protecting people actually cost more lives. chinese health officials say there's been a turning point in the city of she on with 13000000 people have been under locked down since the 23rd of december and outbreak of the delta there it has been contained and numbers of infections i declining. since i was agile, although there may be cases in the future of the risk, a large scale resurgence have been brought under control as our anti epidemic efforts. or would she results? but these results achieved by the strictest measures impose since those and the city of ohio in 2020 have come at a cost, a woman who was 8 months pregnant,
12:24 am
lost her unborn child after being refused entry to a hospital until she tested negative for the virus the incident spiked anger on line with some posts describing the woman's treatment as heartbreaking. the joey wonder is under both here on behalf of the municipal health commission, i deeply apologize to this patient and deeply apologize for the poor access to medical treatment during the academic an elderly man died of a heart attack after also being refused care for similar reasons people have been confined to their home since the lockdown was ordered. many have complained of an adequate food deliveries. one man was beaten by pandemic prevention stopped for trying to leave his apartment, blocked by bread. francis miller is a college counselor who's worked at a school and she, and since 2018, he says he and his girlfriend have enough food because they stocked up ahead of
12:25 am
time. but some of his peers aren't so lucky. i know that some other americans, shyanne have had trouble getting food. no one guy has been living on basically as the noodles for more than a week. i think it depends on each person's situation and also your property management company like how competent people are there. so especially like people who have larger families or who have difficult medical situations or stuff like that can be very difficult right now for people to get the things that they need. whether it's food or medicine or otherwise. francis says many has been shocked by poor city management and the failure to learn lessons from the 1st outbreak and han, you know, given that it's been 2 years since then. how difficult it's been for, you know, that she on to deal with this new outbreak. and how long it's taken kind of the city and especially decision makers to, to react and to solve problems as
12:26 am
a city leaders said those responsible for mishandling health delivery and corona virus prevention services have been fired, suspended or punished. meanwhile, authorities in the neighboring colon as a battling and outbreak, which is several. 1.16000000 people will put under locked out in the city of utero . after only a handful of infections were discovered, china's coven 0 approach has acquired a new urgency. the lead up to the winter olympics, which opens here in february, katrina u. l. 0 stage in cambodia as prime minister and said is on a 2 day visit to me and mom is the 1st regional leader enter the country since in military could last year. many concerned that is true or bring a degree of legitimacy to me and most military genta. tony chang reports on this now from neighboring thailand, cambodian prime minister, who and sen takes
12:27 am
a few uncertain steps as he starts and official today visit to me and mom. he's the 1st head of state to visit myanmar since the coo last february, while a military has rolled out the red carpet, few others welcome the trip. on social media and side man, mom has been full of images like this. people showing their anger at hanson. those opposed to the coo and me, and mars military rulers. there, the visit gives legitimacy to the regime. the people are, are clearly sending a very strong message that on son is not welcome. in that they are very upset that they're on santis, a chevy, providing visitor missy cheer, the murderers hunter and, and which is actually terrorized. the whole country is also concerned that hudson could open the door that allows me on my way back into ashy and the association of southeast asian nations southeast asian leaders have already taken an unprecedented
12:28 am
stand in excluding myanmar until certain conditions are met. such as the release of political prisoners and the end of violence against protest is it's unclear how much backing when sin has from other regional leaders. but his arrival in myanmar could divide our sienna further. it's also very unlikely once and we'll meet any of the jail democratic leaders deposed in the qu, but he may be looking for some time in the global spotlight himself, who in san are realized that he is going to play the central role on the stage. he relishes that, i think it also is something that makes countries that have criticized him like the united states and the european union need him that they need his co operation. protest is inside minima have consistently called for the international community to pay more attention to the cause. but a visit from one of the longest serving authoritarian leaders in the world is unlikely to bring them the attention they want. tony ching al jazeera said ad on
