5:05 am
television, secretary of state and the blinking has moved russia against any military incursions. we provided very significant military assistance to ukraine. we've been taking action against russian agents in ukraine. but as to the sanctions, the most important thing we can do is to use them as a deterrent, as a means of dissuading russia from engaging and further aggression. one sanctions are triggered, you lose the deterrent effect. so what we're doing is putting together a whole series of actions that would figure into president putin's calculus. my kind of joys, now live from washington, d. c. mike, what else is the state department saying about this? this order for family members that stuff to leave ukraine. well, the state department has issued a level for travel notice which means that those employees of the state department who wish to lose believe or can voluntarily do so. but it's also ordered family
5:06 am
members of embassy employees to leave ukraine. now in a briefing by 2 senior state department officials, it was made clear that this did not come about because of any new information that's being received in recent days. rather, it was seen as an opportune time to lay raise the level of the travel warning, but no particular news has actually spark talk this action. however, the state department officials also say that the american citizens, us citizens who are living in ukraine, will not be able to get out with embassy assistance if they want to leave ukraine. they must do so by themselves. busy booking commercial flights if needed, and so once again, that position being made very clear as well, but it is raising the level of the travel notice to make it clear that employees can stay, should they wish to add, but their families have got to leave. meanwhile,
5:07 am
if we look at was the secretary of state antony blinking is saying what we just heard him say earlier is the us shifting its position in terms of sanctions? well, it's a novel interpretation of the nature of sanctions by the secretary of state. what he appears to be implying is that sanctions are not punitive, as such, they are more used as a deterrent. he's saying that if the deterrent is put in place, then there's no need for the target to be sanctioned at all. so certainly this is somewhat novel approach to this issue seeing sanctions as, as a deterrent rather than as a punitive action for something that has already been carried out. that is, in this case, they should russia invade ukraine. now this is different to what some of the us european partners would see it. they see sanctions as
5:08 am
a punitive action. the threat of sanctions as a very important way to prevent russia from going ahead with any incursion. but what the secretary of state appears to be saying is that sanctions are just one element in a wide range of different medic actions to prevent directions from carrying ahead with an incursion as the us and its allies and russia is contemplating. i my camera in washington dc. thank taliban. official sovereign talks with western powers in norway. they focusing on afghanistan, worsening humanitarian crisis, and reports of human rights abuse. senior taliban members are expected to meet officials from several nato countries, including us representatives as our been surveyed reports. it's day one of the 3 day trip for the afghan delegation led by the foreign minister of though is the 1st place in europe after trips to russia. iran got their china in pakistan. but nor is

5:10 am
trying to move from a fighting force to a governing council. have yet to deliver on a country wide secondary education for girls, but have allowed women to work in hospitals. schools in the airport. they deny arresting them and cracking down and activists while some of them and continue to protest and demand their rights. very often, in the absence of that communication, the international community or different stakeholders keep moving, the goal posts. so in order to make sure that the top one are there with the words that they're putting out there, are aligning with their actions and women and disenfranchised books. in general, in upon us on our protected, that's going to be a huge outcome if that can come out of or we can start headed in that direction from norway. the harsh winter is yet another screen for most guns who have not been paid for months and struggling with a collapsing economy. and the biggest fatalities needed is to keep the population fed and war agencies warned. a 1000000 are gone,

ah, you're working on this era, reminder of our top stories, the cell authorities advocate far so have to fed an overnight curfew after a day of violence. soldiers new needed several army camps. the government denied that there was an attended crew. b u. s. is told that citizens in ukraine and families of its care of embassy staff to leave the country. the state department is wanting military action by russia could come at any time in the us will not be able to evacuate american taliban officials on talks of western powers in norway are focusing on afghanistan, worsening humanitarian crisis. reports of human rights abuse. fighting between us backs kurdish forces and to i saw fight is, has continued for
5:15 am
a 4th day near a prison in northeast and syria. the armed group attacked the jail to free imprisoned members. the violence is left more than 70 people dead. and as i said, beg reports, even the area has begun fleeing their homes. but this is the moment i saw detainees escaped from prison in northern syria. with the 4 days i saw fight to have attempted to free their fellow members. it's unclear how many have managed to escape how many have been killed or recaptured by kurdish forces who are being supported by us there strikes the prison houses more than 1200 prisoners from 50 different nationalities. it's seen as the most significant attack by isolate since the armed group was defeated in that region 3 years ago. ah, this footage shows eyes who fighters breaking into prison. a pile of bodies dressed in uniform lay in the corner. kurdish forces say they have the upper hand. i like
5:16 am
the ash must of inhabits. now dice exist only in the prison. i mean, apart from the prison, they don't exist anywhere. so there are controlling the prison only, and we are surrounding them. they do have weapons, i don't deny that, but they can't do anything with that. they might run out of ammunition and therefore they don't fight back resistance near the prison or fling the fighting. a member has been bombing bull, pains, and contracts since yesterday, and young people were slaughtered. what is happening? the situation is catastrophic. we fed the shelling and conflicts. we got scared for our children in flood. there's also reports i sell fighters have broken into homes and killed people as bad as i was. i slaughtering die ash, members broken and cold for men. our neighbors, 2 of them were brothers. as the fighting continues, the fear now is whether this attack means a significant return by the armed group or a one off attempt to replenish its numbers for a future front against kurdish forces. i said bake al jazeera
5:17 am
with the walls of organizations. europe, director says there are further signs. the only con variant is moving the pandemic into a new phase. he's optimistic that cove at 19 is shifting from a pandemic till more manageable endemic illness, like the flu. it blows above that dead agent is moving the words account over, but the mic and then what an angle of the covert 19. but upon them it in wednesday mccomb. ruth was upset the laundry for quite some weeks and months. oh good entity . other things with obscene or because people as in the inception and also modem, says another thing. so anticipate debt did maybe put it off quote,
5:18 am
by far above it, maintaining mortgage back towards end of the year. but not necessarily depend demik going back. the spread of the only con variant could spell the end of measures imposed in most countries for almost 2 years. ireland has and for some of the toughest covered 19 roles in europe. despite having the 2nd highest number of cases in the e. u last week, it's al, scrapped almost all measures, including use of a digital vaccination certificate. in england rules around face coverings and covered passports will end on thursday. the government dropped its work from home advice last week and with infection numbers falling france expects to ease restrictions for vaccinated people. next month. governments dropping restrictions are citing high vaccination rates, natural immunity, lower hospitalizations, and fewer debts or catherine bennett is chair and epidemiology at the deacon university institute for health transformation. she joined us by skype from
5:19 am
melbourne. thank you for your time. so are we in the pandemic end game? i mean, what, what does that mean? well this on the wrong way has been very different to previous ones. and it's not just because we have i vaccination rates that really helped protect in serious illness and overwhelming hospital that the incredibly high infection rate actually falls countries including a strayer, that was uncomfortably starting to learn to live with the buyers in the community. come to terms with the fact that it was going to be here because you just couldn't hold back unless you and even then were guaranteed you went to severe restriction. you could contain that. so it really was on the chrome that thankfully, didn't start countries with away it, it overloaded hospital, it was manageable even with really high waves impact, you know, change the whole horizon in terms of the talk about living with the virus. now
5:20 am
suddenly we were all doing it in a way that the countries like a strategy we hadn't done before. and those countries that went in district locked down, including, as you say, island wheels. so those similar things in the netherlands didn't actually hold us and the virus still continued. decline buddies still manageable with the levels of visitors that, that now have rolling out in those settings as well. so with restrictions being drops and with these high infection, right. what is that trajectory going to look like? will be infection, right? dropoff, even though some of those restrictions are being lessened, all was the trajectory here. well, it depends at what point they are easing out of restrictions in, you know, in places like south africa, we saw the very rapid climb in the very rapid decline in australia way coming out
5:21 am
of our way here. but just at the time when people are coming back from holidays, from the summer holidays here, you know, to go back to school, go back to work. so we expect that might slow the drop. you know, it might be that we be plateau rather than dropping case numbers, or it might just happen quite slowly. so i do think it depends on how much people were relying on those restrictions to hold it. and whether the true growth is actually the past that take the rely on a lot in this turnaround on actual infection rates for us in australia and many other countries, most people infected were between 20 and 39. that was the, the main mixing group and their infection rights was so high because vaccine didn't the primary cause didn't really protect you from infection. that in fact we've, we've got infection acquired immunity in those core groups that really do slow the spread. then through the whole population, once you have
5:22 am
a combination of the sta and infection in just immunity against, i'm a chrome in that man group, so hopefully that'll be enough to stop. the case is rising again up to ac restrictions, but it might just still slow down the decline when be quiet. has come as far as coming off as it was taking off. all right, thank you very much for your time. really appreciate katherine been at their chair and if you know the deacon university institute for health transformation, a group of scientists in israel says a full shot of 5 is called 19 vaccine triples protections of people over the age of 60 early result. so that it makes that age group twice as resistant to infection than those who've had 3 infix injections rather. but the scientists have clarified that the additional booster will not provide complete immunity. dr. chris, nor would they would they, a coma is the director of the duke global health innovation center. he says,
5:23 am
a full shot might offer some extra protection, but thanks. most countries will stop at 3. we should remember that about 52 percent of everybody in the world has been fully vaccinated, but that rate is only about 10 percent across the continent of africa. so we still have a lot of work to do to get 1st 2nd doses to be protected. and also for the 3rd dose is that we have more and more data is highly protective relative to 2 doses, especially for omicron so well there may be a little bit of relative additional protection with a 4th dose. i don't think that beyond special circumstances with a very high risk population that, that's going to become the norm for many countries. the good thing is the global vaccine supply is picking up pretty significantly. we're now producing over a 1000000000 and a half doses a month. we've got new vaccines, especially the protein sub unit vaccines that are coming online. so the supply scenario looks promising over the coming weeks and months. but we should be really
5:24 am
clear that there needs to be transparent and equitable allocation of those, especially to get high risk population vaccinated everywhere in the world. and in places like israel, that a relatively small population. and they've taken a very aggressive stance with vaccination so far. but what we're seeing is that the role of vaccines is going to be less about protection, complete immunity, against infections in transmission, and really much more about making sure that individuals are protected against severe disease. and that we're using it to protect health systems as they become vulnerable. so in that scenario, really global vaccination is the only path forward lebanon's economic collapse has again, brought protest is back on the streets. they say the government's recovery plan is short of much needed reforms. and as the crisis continue, some demonstrated fear, they may be no end in sight. that hor, report from denied their money and their savings. these people say they are faced
5:25 am
with no choice but to keep protesting. it's been 2 years since lebanon's banks insisted. money could only be withdrawn in the local currency, the lira it is at a much lower rate than the markets, which means they lose 70 percent of its value. it's a process now known as li revocation. changing the deposit would take us to hyper and hyper inflation. this is very about the revenues economy. the financial system collapsed in late 2019 successive governments had piled up that for years before money stopped coming in the bank in the central bank and the state where literally that together both the excess of human to pick and model is fine. do deposit through through a deposit from the wealthy community which the bank then use the land to the central bank. now this status nearly bankrupt and banks are insolvent. authorities
5:26 am
have not agreed on the way out of the crisis, but they acknowledge lubrication is possible, but at the rate that dominates trading litigation is one of the things that it is mentioned from now and then makes it very difficult in order to see exactly what they think better because as far as i know, a prime minister is doing his best and order the small and the middle deposited to receive back their deposit. many are skeptical protests like this one have not abroad change. the state is still controlled by the same political class, blamed for the financial collapse and those who hold the power and the individuals linked to them are the majority of shareholders and back depositors say it is day who have been bearing the losses and the financial sector. officials estimates amount to $69000000000.00 within guy also like back that increase back on people. i
5:27 am
meanwhile like the majority of the people get paid and living, you're out a lot around 95 percent of the value. politicians should be presenting an economic recovery plan to the international monetary fund to receive assistance, but that would require reforms that we can there hold on the states resources. instead, they prepare the state budget that appears to put additional burdens on the people while protecting their own financial interests. that could their elders, either beirut, a secret ballot will begin on monday to choose a success. it is least president sergio. martha rella, former prime minister silvio berlusconi, withdrew from the election over the weekend. but he's still trying to influence the vote and adam rainy reports from wrong. oh, now that scandal tainted former prime minister silvio berlusconi has pulled out of italy's presidential election. his main goal is to block the leading contender from
5:28 am
winning the prize. that man prime minister mattie draggy has led a pandemic unity government for the past 11 months. you know, most candidates don't formally and out to run, but draggy, his strong. we hinted he wants to move on to the presidency, a fact the to the local group molto, the grey look at us. we have accomplished what we will hold on to do. i'm a man a grandfather if you like, the service of institutions. if bill scone and the leaders have at least 2 main right wing parties keep the rug in the prime minister's office, they might be able to stave off a general election for another year while they build support for conservative government. at least president mainly perform ceremonial duties, but can be called on to resolve political crises, the election and normally behind the scenes of fare and which legislators and regional representatives cast secret ballots has now captured the nation's attention. i am in favor of electing a woman and leaving druggie where he has been doing a good job. my god, we all wish our current president would just stay in office for another term,
5:29 am
a tie and see 80 year old serge ometer ela as a steady and unifying force. he says he has no interest in a 2nd 7 year term. there is a chance he could be convinced to stay on. also in the running justice minister mark to cut tabio, if she went, she would become at least 1st female president. the focus right now though is under aggie, and that ela, many italians worried that if motto, draggy is elected to service the president. here's another palace that the stability his government has secured of the past year will fall apart as political parties here fight over who becomes the next prime minister, least political historian, lorenzo castellano, he says legislators would already have a plan in place if they choose to like bragging or drug will be elected only if there's an agreement on the future of the government. but i had overseen the influx of billions of dollars and the you recovery funds. the worry is if he's no longer
5:30 am
prime minister, elite recovery could go off track. many people can be president of the public while as a brand new or a drug, he is not easily replaceable. so ease much more useful as a premium. the election held in parliament will likely go on for several rounds until a candidate gains enough votes. whoever wins will have to try and help italy avoid political crises, and it tries to solidify a sustainable recovery from the pandemic. adarine algebra, rome ah, down to there, these are that helped stories? well thought isn't because if also have an overnight curfew after a day of violence, soldiers new needed several army camps. but the government deny that there was an attempted to. the us is told that citizens in ukraine and families of its give embassy staff to leave the country. the state department is wanting military action by.
