12:03 am
and also they're likely fall out from that closer all the top story this hour is that it's too darn where at least 7 people have been killed by security forces they're in the latest crack down on descent against last year's military coup. thousands of people marched in the capital and in other cities, they are demanding a full transition to civilian governance, which was set back by the military takeover in october. since then, at least 67 people have been killed in protests on security officer is been killed . the united nations has condemned the use of lethal force while a crowd of thousands march towards the presidential palace in the capital har tune, calling. the change in the country latest violence comes ahead of a visit by us diplomat who is seeking to revive the process of transitioning to civilian rule. all united nations as announced that it will launch talks to help resolve the crisis. our correspondent heb morgan is in hartford with more on this.
12:04 am
now, as the un mission here in sudan prize to mediate between the various will ethical parties, civil societies associations, and various actors here in sudan to try to break a political deadlock that has been enclave since the military took over bar and late october last year. protest a glimpse against it to the $0.03 to take over. there have been calling for the military to return to their barracks. i leave to dance politics and best protest come before a visit is expected. by thea, you are the official, the assistant secretary of state or for african affairs and a year for so and for, for the horn of africa are expected to arrive in order to, to give us the board to the you. an initiative which is hoped to break the political deadlock that has left to them without the government for more than 2 months now. so don't we serve and to council lead by the military that it accepts the u. s. initiative to try to break the political deadlock,
12:05 am
but brought us to say they don't want to negotiate with military. many of the organizers of this protest day, they will not sit down at a round table where the military present. political parties, on the other hand, are divided some say they are willing to negotiate, to try to get the country out of a deadlock while all the say they also want the military going before any kind of negotiation takes place. the biggest challenge to the you and initiative that is currently under way is the issue of trust between the various parties. since the military take over and late october, the trust, the very fragile trust that existed between the political parties and the military was broken. protesters have been met with sir gas live ammunition by security forces. the u. n. has condemned the use of force by security forces. at least 64 people have been killed. 100 have been injured as they demand a complete civilian rule despite the violence that protesters have been met with, they continued to organize, protest,
12:06 am
continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military return to the barracks despite the violence that protesters have been met with they continued to organize, protest continue to demand for civilian government and continued to demand the military return to the barracks. we'll see it on my face, the director of the africa program that european council on foreign relations. he says a situation in the country is likely to escalate with more violence as neither side is prepared to back down they are. 4 trying to break the back of the, of the spirit of the, of the protest movement and hoping that they can quiet the streets. and then somehow, whether the international opprobrium that their actions have caught. and come out on the other side of this in control. but it's not working out and they're ending up in a corner. let's be clear. the most important and powerful force right now is still the sudanese street, but their international partner, their allies,
12:07 am
the group of faith to stand with the democratic aspirations of sudan also have a role to play up until now since the coup with perpetrate in october 25th those partners of all frozen there. since this is the gesture that they made, what they haven't done yet is bring any sticks to bear, bring any course with measures targeted sanctions, things of that nature. this is something that would represent and escalation and would show a new degree of pleasure on the part of the international community. in the news, our life from on the national still ahead to on the program after saturdays are option in hunger. the scale of the disaster remains unclear, australia, new zealand, and reconnaissance aircraft to find out more. ukraine swarm president returned time to face treason charges with a mass show support outside the court. and i found the dal is up and running at the australian open as he chases
12:08 am
a record. the 21st grand slam title will be later in the news. now the united nation to saying the taliban is attempting to steadily erase women and girls from public life. comments came from a joint statement by a group of rights x. but now they're saying that the taliban policies constitute a collective punishment of women and girls, grounded on gender base bias and harmful practices. they are concerned by continuous and systematic efforts to exclude women from a social, economic, and political fears. i also want it's now harder for women to work and to make a living. pushing them further into poverty. can now speak to fazio coffee, the 1st female deputy speaker of parliament in afghanistan, and a women's rights activists. so un human rights ex but are worried about
12:09 am
institutionalized gender based discrimination and violence. what does that mean for women and girls? how has life changed for them since august? well ma'am, you know, does what's happening in a fun unfortunately, is very unique to the situation. there. it is not happening in other muslim countries, and it's not certainly happening in the greater world community. a woman are deprived from their basic fundamental rights and slavic rice. i must say, including the rights to goes, go to school, go to work, and access the sources, access a public transport. basically, they're becoming invisible. and his heart became good because some what's been done to the women of a plan is that especially under the name of islam is on the contrary against this
12:10 am
tommy principles and all that certain groups of women that are particularly vulnerable ethnic minorities, that might be most at risk, for example, the has are a community well, we all know that the politics of talent is a politics of m, you know, exclusion. and they believe in exclusion. and their definition of inclusion is basically establishing a government that is made of taliban different background from an ethnic point of view, from a religious point of view. and from also gender points of view that had about the fact to power does not represent any of these a benchmarks. it's a government majority from one social and i do have a group,
12:11 am
no woman at all. and of course it is no ethnic balance. and there is no religious a presentation and they have tried to repress, maine and woman from certain ethnic groups and certainly from religious, minority of hazard, as you mentioned, but also from other ethnic groups as well. they try to have extra judiciary, address, extrajudicial killing in common, for instance, the poor, some people. but if they force people to leave the advantages enforced this placement, enforced this appearance lately, they have become more violent towards, you know, the, the woman who actually protesting the streets of couple demanding for their rights . let's remember that the other one have taken over a, from a institutions and from a basically government. i would say that was recently bully delivering to the
12:12 am
people as opposed to the taliban that took over in 1096 another kiosks and civil war. there was corruption during the previous government. of course the power was basically center in the hands of few people, you know, wrong appointments, etc. but at the end of the day, it was a government that had the media was the important factor for democracy and freedom of speech. now people are used to that level of accountability and responsiveness for top one to be only, you know, you should decrease back to back if you piss woman depress religious minorities, you play a purpose ethnic groups. you know, lately, for instance, that there have been images that came out to social media from cobbler who actually they went and committed extra tradition of killing and was, were disrespecting to the bodies which, you know, as, as most of them, we all know that this respecting to the body is not within any religion and within
12:13 am
any, you know, human rights principles or any cotton. and i suppose women and girls and other groups in the country are going to be disproportionately affected by the humanitarian crisis in the country. now you have half the population going hungry, millions of people of facing starvation help us understand the urgency of the situation and just the level of suffering in afghanistan. right now. let's see that the woman and the developed communities and the minorities are the main victim of this humanitarian crisis. because during the war over for, for the kids of war and but particularly over to the kids of war, a lot of women actually lost the bit winners of the family. and they have been the big winner of the family now that they are stopped from accessing office is going to work. or even they are not allowed to get out of their homes and travel up to
12:14 am
a certain distance with the main company. and if the without the main company, if they have to travel in public taxes or buses, they need to be asked for a mail company or madam. and if they don't have a company in the taxi driver cannot, basically the taxi drivers have become like, you know, a moral police for women or. c 3 which is so wrong because how can you actually ask a police, a taxi driver who is not even educated to be the, the motor police for women. so women and minorities are the most, i receive hundreds of calls per day from the local communities asking for basic food. and i think yes, humanitarian crisis is there. we need to really ensure that women are in the mainstream distribution of the age, not only as recipients, but also decision making as people who are higher. i don't want to put as international community to make gender inclusion as a condition,
12:15 am
but we need to really seriously negotiate the international community. must negotiate to ensure that women are part of the, in a distribution of 8 in the decision making. as staffers as the manager, as people who are at the, by international community, they need to really show case that women can do and women must be included. but beyond that media, i think it's time for international community to support a political dialogue about us. and how long are we going to like? the, you know, expedient, the situation. thousands of people had left the country awaiting you have seen the in the passport department. people are chewing. some people actually lose their lives, waiting for to get the passport. the country cannot continue to post trip for the world security eventually, because if it's a government that is not accountable, it can post trade for the well security. and therefore, i think the world must get out of this humanitarian crisis business, which is needed. but we have to look ahead and have a vision for political bio because this cannot continue to be like that. i mean,
12:16 am
the people cannot continue to be the victim is richard. a woman we are seeing the country does not actually have any other country. the same situation in the world where women are deprived from the principal islamic right to education. how can you actually claim that you are in a muslim when you deprived woman from out here, a paving education. thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us on this is report today by panel of you and human rights experts. thank you. and we do, or me, one of the story from afghanistan now has been in a quake at least 26 people have been killed. it's a $5.00 magnitude trema, which shook a western province of bad guess. reaching affected areas is difficult over here as a humanitarian crisis in the country right now who just hearing about that, but also very difficult mountainous terrain there. so we'll stay across that story for you. but also even falling developments with the who sees and this attack on
12:17 am
oil facilities in the united arab emirates, in which 3 people were killed. mama del a tub is an yelman's, capital santa and joins us now. have you heard anything more about this claim by the who sees yes, and according to the statement of the how these spokesperson the soviet, he says that the, the carried out this could get the, you know, a grammar. it's in order and retaliation to of the he described its participation and the solid quality and the war. he said that the visit, the problem was that we have the we have made and they have fil failed. so such a promise we have used according to his statement, 5 winged missiles that have attacked according to the oil refinery and so far, and also the international thought of dubai and will be,
12:18 am
he has mentioned also the have a target, the international parts of lobby and and do a so the situation is a father escalating that the he, he also was that there is a dense and also far foreign companies in order to, to avoid becoming a close to, to vital facilities according to his words. so this is not to be target, especially if he said that if the united decide to continue, it's what he described aggressive escalation against him. and the, the situation as you mentioned, is escalating so far be willing to now extend their targets. he mentioned that he would expand their targets, bags of their targets, in case you decided to continue. it's 5 spacious. this, this, this has followed also the saudi lit quality and attacks on some
12:19 am
reports as civilians, number of civilians injured, kill an injured. so the, the did the lobby on escalation or civilians on both sides are the victims of such a war that has continued for 7 years now. all right, thank you. mm hm. and i tab there in the capital center. thank you. al janet foreign minister says she'll do everything in her pallet to guarantee ukraine security. and alina bab bulk made the comments during her meeting with ukrainian officials in kiev. are trying to revive full way peace talks with russia and france to and the conflicts in the east and dumbass region. russia has been massing troops at the border with ukraine raising fears of an invasion jannen 5 minutes to meet her russian counterpart in moscow. on tuesday, dominic kane has more from berlin. the thing that really stood out from this meeting at least the news conference had emerged after the meeting of the 2 foreign
12:20 am
ministers was a restoration of germany's prospective. germany's support for ukraine on the line a bell book saying effectively to the russians that any further, each further aggression would be met with some diplomatic response from her country and others saying in her opinion, that diplomacy is the only way to solve this crisis. also referring to the normandy format, saying that the 4 way meeting of ministers between paris here, moscow, berlin, that, that's a format that they want to reinvigorate where possible. but it is worth making the point that in questions both to mrs. burbock and to her counterparts. rhetorical yuba, when the question walls about worth of the german government would seek to provide some form of more material support in the form of weapons perhaps. and alina beveled did not touch on much choosing not to answer the question directly, which of course is interesting in itself,
12:21 am
because they're all those who say that if germany wants materially to support ukraine and perhaps weapons would be a way of doing it. but as a say that was not touched upon, at least not by the german foreign minister. after a strong start, china's economic growth slowed at the end of last year. the pandemic real estate troubles in the lowest birthright and decades of being blamed for the slumped brit clinic reports on this. now from hong kong. as china tackles its on the chrome spread, a temperature check on the health of its economy shows mixed results. 4th quarter g d p rose by 4 percent from a year ago. according to china's national bureau statistics that stronger than the government's own target, but nearly a full percentage points slower than the previous quarter. the chinese economy grew by 8 point one percent in 2021 with the help of steady industrial output, as the world continue to buy china's goods. and actually father industrial production, experienced sustained development and high tech manufacturing and equipment
12:22 am
manufacturing experienced fast growth. but momentum is waning and its economy last steam in the 2nd half of the year, triggered by a slow down in the real estate sector and regulatory clamp downs authorities restricting the amount of money property developers could borrow. after the fall out from the debt hid ever ground crisis, authorities will also need to address the effects of an aging population and the lowest birth rates since 949, just 7.5 births to every 1000 people. that's despite relaxing family planning measures like the one child policy. young chinese couples are increasingly choosing not to have babies because of higher living costs. other challenges on the horizon for china include supply chain problems and uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. the on the chrome varied has spread to a number of its cities, prompting locked down and wrapped up restrictions. at least one case has been detected in beijing, which is gearing up to host the winter olympics in less than 3 weeks. restrictions
12:23 am
are being stepped up to contain the spread ahead of the learn a new year holiday bite. don't honestly, i'm bored that the winter olympics will bring in more cases when people come from other countries, we do not know how the situation will go. i'm not worried, i think the government has been doing well. chinese officials of warning people in high risk areas including beijing, to avoid traveling during the fed. 5th period, bridge clinic al jazeera, hong kong, or mainland, china's birth rate has dropped to of record low, nearly 6 years offer. it ended. it's one child policy couples can have up to 3 children in an attempt to avoid economic risks from a rapidly aging population. 2021 rates of birth a 1000. and that was the lowest since $949.00, it's far from the only superpower phase with the prospect to the shrinking population. fuel babies are born in the u. s. as well in 2020 than any years since
12:24 am
979. and it was the 6 consecutive year with a declining birthright fall is being seen worldwide since 1950 average number of children born woman is harmed, projected the planet below 2 point one by the end of the century. according to a study published in the lancet. that's the right needed for population replacement in developed countries. historically countries have been able to compensate by encouraging migration to boost their working populations. that's going to become harder though, as more countries start to see that populations fall. so worn this last b t, professor in golden. he focuses on globalization and development, the university of oxford, thank you for joining us. tell us more then about the ripple effects of an aging population. well, there are many consequences from the miss. it's really a sign of progress in particular girls education,
12:25 am
the rights of women to choose are they going to have babies? and as populations age a greater and greater share of older people, it was a healthy as a key question is, are they healthy? they dependent and how are you going to keep them going? and also, of course, important is how they going to be supported, who's going to pay the pensions. and as the elderly become a great and several population that political power increases. so it's vital that we see the interest of young people as well being sustained throughout the world. this is happening globally. in fact, we're going to be reaching the level of about 2 point one way before 2050. i think in the next 10 years we'll see the majority of the world's population not increasing at its reproduction race. in other words, more all the people less than less younger people, adversity or societies in fact, already today. for the 1st time in history, there are more people over the age of 65 than they are under 5,
12:26 am
and this is never happened before. so it's, i mean, massive shifting societies. we need to keep all the people healthy. i think we're going to see that older people stay in employment, much longer pension ages will rise. i think what we're going to see as well is a need for people to rely more immigrants in many societies and also on technologies which be able to do many things that humans did. we were just mentioning that china ending it's one child policy. why has that not had an effect on the birth rate or a significant impact? it's not going to have an effect on the birth rate. in fact, china's neighbors that had no policy at all regarding birth control. for example, taiwan, hong kong and south korea have much lower birth rates than mainland china itself. it's really a reflection of women's education, the ability of women to choose the cost of living in urban areas. the fact that you're no longer support, you're in support. you in your old age,
12:27 am
so the benefits have gone down. the costs have gone very rapidly in terms of an apartment to a room for children, the cost of education, the cost of health. and i think people are just choosing to enjoy themselves rather than become child rarer for the greater part of their lives. so this is something which is happening across the world. in fact, in spain, in germany and italy, in many countries, both rates away below what they are in china and china is very, very close to the usa now. so it's not about policy. it's really about many other things that are happening that are driving these low fertility rates in difficult question to answer. it will depend, i suppose, on where in the world we're speaking about, you know, we've seen this demographic trend in japan and now we see much of the western world going in the same direction. but would you describe this as an opportunity or a looming crisis?
12:28 am
i think it can be an opportunity, it's really up to governments and societies to make it what it means is that the same amount of resources that we have on our economies will be shared by small number of people. i think that's very good to make people wealthier in many ways. i think it creates an opportunity for older people to stay active and healthy and work. i think it's going to create employment opportunities for young people. so reduce unemployment, which is very good. of course it was. ready it could be good for the environment if we consumed less well that just new york state consumes more energy than the whole of $46.00 countries in sub saharan africa. so what we choose to do is going to be apps the vital and of course it creates an opportunity for immigrants which are actually vital for our well being. we see this, of course, in the u. s. e, where it's about 85 percent plus of the population is immigrant. but around the world immigrants all sorts of dynamism. and they come from per places. they often
12:29 am
come from immense hardship. and so this is an open changes well to embrace immigrants as a vital part of growing countries in golden. thank you for joining us. it's a great pleasure. thanks for having me with denise our lie from london, and we'll still add on the program. many journalists, the cashier press club, was in office as well as an important meeting place. now it's been closed down by the indian government. novak joke of it goes off to being deported. a new law means you might be able to compete with the french open. i find out why a bond is top striker has been sent over the ask a couple of nations from away jama. ah,
