7:05 am
members of embassy employees to leave ukraine. now in a briefing by to senior state department officials, that 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 trouble warning, but no particular news has actually sparked off this action. however, the state department officials also say that as 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 raised in the level of the travel notice to make clear that employees can stay, should they wish to add,
7:06 am
but their families have got to leave while over the weekend, the u. s. sent to plain loads of weapons and ammunition to ukraine. the $200000000.00 shipment are so called legal aid is aimed at strength and defenses. russia continues to deny to denied spanish military offensive and says the west is drumming up this information to raise tensions. the leader of a pro russian political party in ukraine has denied british claims that he's part of a plot to replace the government in kiev. the u. k also says moscow has been working to push out ukrainian president voting news. lensky in favor of former m. p. have any more of the crime and phase that's nonsense. it's unusual for the british for an office to release intelligence information like this. and it gave almost no detail about the conspiracy. really, challenge has more from london the british government hasn't said why they are not providing the evidence to back up this intelligence claim. but there are good reasons why they might not want to because a course in an intelligent setting. if you reveal the evidence,
7:07 am
the way in which you found intelligence out that can blow the source of that intelligence and close off any more of it coming your way. they don't want to do that, but it does make it just a matter of trust. do you trust the british government when they say something like this? and of course the russians are saying, no, we absolutely don't. it's nonsense. also saying it's nonsense is the man at the heart of this intelligence release. his name is gift. any mariah you can use senior year, but of course everything looks ridiculous and funny. first it's baseless, has everything performed 5. secondly, and absurd because i've been under sanctions from the russian federation since the 1st of november 2018. i have been denied entry to russia. i represent a threat to russian security that happened after a conflict with the victim id the choke. soon after that, i created my own particular sanctions, were imposed to limit my political activity in ukraine. it seems the british
7:08 am
governments announcements is being treated with a certain amount of amusement, and that's mainly because he gave him arrive the man we just heard from is seen there is a bit of a fringe figure with not that much influence. and it's believed in care, there are more obvious choices that the kremlin could turn to if they wanted to put in place some sort of puppet regime. and also there are inter agency rivalries between the g r u the f s b s, the off agencies that don't actually often work together. and so one agency might be planning something, or positing, something which other agencies don't condone and hasn't actually necessarily yet got the by and of the kremlin. so what the british intelligent 17 picked up on could actually be low level chatter and not something that's really a consolidated plan. the taliban has started 3 days of talks in aust low with
7:09 am
western officials and representatives of some afghan groups. foreign minister, i mean can, will talk, he believes the meetings are a step towards recognizing the taliban government, but their host, norway, stress that that isn't the aim of the talks or some been job. it has more it's day one of the 3 day trip for the gone delegation that by the foreign minister, although is the 1st space in europe after trips to russia. iran cut their china in pocket sun, but nor is made it clear that this does not mean legitimacy for the fall of on a chance to talk to those who are in charge of understand the not good anymore. bombed him in norway. we have a meeting with the us and also with the european union on matters of mutual interest. one part of our meetings would be with an afghan, despoil, who are outside the country, especially in europe with their ideas, consultations and plans will be heard. this means that meetings from mutual understanding will continue between afghans during the close doors meeting that
7:10 am
a local hotel, economic business, and political issues are high on the agenda. the west is looking to use its leverage of sanctions frozen. i've got money on humanitarian aid, while the interim government wants money, legitimacy, and removal from van lists. the focus from outside remains and pressing taliban leaders on their promises to deliver women's rights good education and civil liberties. thought about the this 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, and therefore 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 the words that they're putting out there are aligning with their actions and women and
7:11 am
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, children could face salvation. that's despite the united nations providing money to pay for salaries and importing essentially like wheat and electricity, followed by an official and says this the piece and won't let of understand become a security concern. but they say, in order for it to function as a state, the international community must release $10000000000.00 of money for an abroad to get the economy going and address humanitarian needs. a solomon job aid, the the, or meanwhile, about 200 people, mostly afghans living in norway, protest,

city. and also, as a talks began chanting no to taliban, the demonstrators said any move towards official recognition should be resisted. claiming that the taliban hadn't changed since it was pushed from power in 2001 still ahead on al jazeera is really scientist amounts. what they say is promising data. about 4th covered 19 shocks, especially for people over 60 and why italian suddenly paying attention to the rates for a large me ceremonial position. ah, ah, look forward to burritos. guys. with sponsored by cut on airways, winds have died down and temperatures are on the way up. hello, everyone. great to see. let me show you the details. here we are on monday already
7:13 am
. we can see improvements riyadh at 24 degrees. let's go in for a closer look around the golf. i'll put this a few days out. so here we are on wednesday and we've got to other the push of air, so that pops up the temperature and react to 26 degrees. just a few days ago, your low temperature was about to and every one seen improvement in their conditions. minolta, a high of 22 off the pakistan, karachi, it has been fairly windy over the past little bit, but those winds are finally back and off temperatures arise in here too. with the hiv 28 and showers in before have helped to improve the air quality. we do have a lot of snow across turkey, had stranded people in the south and we may see snow where we don't usually see it . so for example, on tale, i will look at the next 3 days, you know, over the last 30 years about one to 2 big dumps of snow. and we could see 2 to 7 centimeters on tuesday for southern africa. we've got a tropical wave of moisture rung out its moisture over madagascar and it's now
7:14 am
slipping into central parts of mozambique flooding to be expected here. and temperatures are dropping in cape town on monday. and now you're in the notes here soon. oh, the weather sponsored by katara always dictatorships to democracies. activists to corporations, control of the message is crucial. oil companies have become very good at recognizing ways to phrase what they want you to hear. we care about the environment you do to you should buy our oil plate for public opinion or profit. once you make people afraid, you can use that to justify stripping away basic civil liberties. the listening post examined the vested interest behind the content you consume on al jazeera lou.
7:15 am
ah, you're watching al jazeera live from doha. reminder of our top stories authorities in book in a fossil have declared an overnight curfew after a day of violence. soldiers mutiny dead. several army camps, but the government denies there was an attempted call. the u. s. s. whole family members of embassy staff in care of to leave, citing the threat of russia invading ukraine. americans are also being urged not to travel to russia. and taliban officials are in talks with western powers in norway . they're focusing on afghanistan, worsting, humanitarian crisis, and reports of human rights abuse. are fighting between us back kurdish forces and i so fight it has continued for a 4th day near prison in northeast and syria. the armed group attacked the jail to free imprisoned members. the violence has left more than 70 dead. and as i said, beg reports, people in the area have begun fleeing nels all over the country. this is the moment
7:16 am
i saw detainees escaped from prison in northern syria. for 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 aunt group was defeated in the region 3 years ago. ah, this footage shows i saw fighters breaking into prison. pile of bodies dressed in uniform lane, the corner kurdish forces say they have the upper hand. i suppose habit now days exist only in the prison. i mean, apart from the prison, they don't exist anyway. so they are controlling the prison only and we are surrounding them. they do have weapons, i don't deny that,
7:17 am
but they can't do anything with that. they might run out of ammunition and therefore they don't fight back residents near the prison or fling the fighting. but it's been bombing bull, pain, and conflict since yesterday, and young people were slaughtered. what is happening? situation is catastrophic. we fed the shelling and conflict. we got scared for children in flood. there's also reports i so fighters have broken into homes and killed people slaughtering diane members broken and killed for men. our neighbors. 2 of them were brothers. the fighting continued. 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 future front against kurdish forces . i said bake jazeera, we police in belgium, her fired water cannon, and tear gas to break up
7:18 am
a protest against corona virus rules. tens of thousands of people march through brussels in the largest demonstration in recent months. lease moved in after people ignored instructions to disperse. demonstrators want to scrap health passes, which are needed to enter businesses and venues. almost 90 percent of adults in belgium have been vaccinated. scientists in israel say a 4th chart of phases covered 19 vaccine. triples protection against severe illness, for people over the age of 60, according to a study, the age group also becomes twice as resistant to infection, but the additional booster will not provide complete immunity. israel began offering a 4th dose earlier this month. dr. christner who diag lamar is director of the duke global health innovation center. he says, a force shot might offer some protection, but things 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
7:19 am
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 on line. so the supply scenario looks promising over the coming weeks and months. but we should be really 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
7:20 am
role of vaccines is going to be less about protection, can lead 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. one of almost 80 pet hamster is surrendered to authorities in hong kong has tested positive for covered 19. the city is calling the animals after some imported from the netherlands were found to be infected over all more than 2000 and have been slaughtered so far. on kong is worried about animal to human transmission and the dies fates of lebanon. the economy has again, brought out protesters. they say the government isn't capable of making the reforms necessary to keep lebanon from slipping in and out of financial disaster, as in a harder report. somebody will deny their money in their savings. these people say
7:21 am
they are faced 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 the revocation, changing the deposit, and so it would take us to a hyper and hyper inflation. this is very bad that the 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 back together as a result the success of human cannot make model, it's fine deposit through, through deposits 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 have not agreed on the way out of the
7:22 am
crisis, but they acknowledge the revocation 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 when they will benefit. as far as i know, a prime minister is doing his best and order the small and the middle deposit the to receive back their deposit. many are skeptical protests like this one have neither broader chains. the state is still controlled by the same political class laid for the financial collapse. and those who hold the power and the individuals linked to them are the majority of shareholders and bank. depositors say it is day who have been bearing the losses and the financial sector officials estimates amount to $69000000000.00 within j. i also like back that increase back on people.
7:23 am
i meanwhile, like the majority of you will get beaten low any 0 to last round, 95 percent of it, value politicians should be presenting an economically cover replying 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 and put their elders. eda, beirut, thousands of spanish farmers have been out to denounced the government's economic and environmental policies. they blocked streets in madrid, calling for more subsidies. they also want prices for their projects to be regulated. the government argues it's already doing enough with $5000000000.00 set aside to help rural areas delayed elections. local elections have taken place in senegal. they're seen as a tester for president mackey sol as well as the opposition after he said he'd

influence over policy sac. his yacht has held the mostly symbolic position since a bloodless revolution in 2018, which al, said the previous government, the astrophysicist has been at odds with prime minister nico, passionate about several issues. they disagreed about the dismissal of the armed forces chief after the war in 2020 with neighboring azerbaijan. a secret ballot will begin on monday to choose a successor to italy's president, sergio montana, whom a prime minister ca bernasconi withdrew from the election over the weekend and is currently in hospital. but he's still trying to influence the voters. adam rainy reports from rome. 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 winning the prize. that man prime minister mattie draggy has led a pandemic unity government for the past 11 months. no, it most candidates don't formally and how to run,
7:28 am
but druggie has strongly hinted. he wants to move on to the presidency, our faculty to local gra molto, the gray look a aristotle gamma we have accomplished what we were called on to do. i'm a man, a grandfather if you like, the service of institutions soon. if bruce, coney and the leaders have at least 2 main right wing parties keep dragging the prime minister's office, they might be able to stave off a general election for another year. why 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 fair in 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 is doing a good job. my god, we all wish our current president mac, that i would just stay in office for another term italian see 80 year old sir john at that ella as a steady and unifying force, he says he has no interest in

7:30 am
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 . so again, i'm fully battle with the headlines on al jazeera authorities in booking of fossil have declared an overnight curfew after a day of violence. soldiers, me to needed several on the camps on sunday. but the government denies there was an attempted call. the u. s. has told it citizens the ukraine and families of its kia embassy staff to leave the country. the state department is wanting.
