6:05 pm
troops and forces to eastern europe is going to create a severe crisis. this is, of course, exactly what this country wanted to avoid, that the russians had were concerned with nato further expanding eastwards and that they were trying to prevent that from happening. but it appears all the diplomatic efforts have failed and now that will continue to move forward. and the russians are very much concerned and believe that this is a security concern. and they wanted to make sure that nato was not expanding any further. they didn't want ukraine to join the 30 member alliance. they said they wanted to go back to 1997 levels. and after that point, 14 new countries joined this alliance. and that is why we're in this position now, according to the russians, they believe that their security is at risk because they are now very much surrounded by countries as that are part of this alliance. and they believe this alliance has this own agenda led by washington. and that's the further true build up around russia by nato forces, is just going to exasperate the situation for now,
6:06 pm
they're still waiting for a written response to their security demands from the u. s. government and they believe that these actions in light of that and waiting for that answer that hasn't come yet, these actions will only make things worse there. so giving the american silly end of this week to respond officially to what they've demanded in terms of their security concerns. torso, thanks for merchandise dasa jabari and moscow is confusion and conflicting stories out of book kena. faso were an attempted coup, is under way reports from the capital walk, the dogs say presidents, rosh ma, christian, cowboy, has been detained at a military base. and soldiers have taken control of the main tv station. a coffee was declared after soldiers staged a mutiny and they had the support groups of civilian protesters. the government, however, has been denying any army takeover that is, all stems from frustration or with regions battle against armed groups affiliated with iso and al haida soldiers reminding better resources to fight them. attacks of
6:07 pm
killed around 2000 people, and 1500000 people have been forced out of their homes. while henry wilkins is joining us on the phone from the capital walker to go. so the president, as i understand it, has been a tweeting about some of this yet, despite the fact that he is upon clay in detention. what's the latest on that, henry? yes. so these 3 we've gotten in the last hour. the 1st one that we've had from the president on the need to need to, to started. well, what's now turned into an attempt to, to started on may 36 hours ago. he said the, the president has been told the people that were organizing the key and taking part in it to lay down the lay down there can come back to the negotiating table. so it's not to diminish the democratic achievement of the,
6:08 pm
of the country. i mean, this morning there were reports by going to the french radio station, our fi as well, the book and i'll be president, had been detained by the by, by the people taking part in the case. the really i did a whole other layer of confusion to what's going on here and am, i can see you at the moment. i really as the day has progress thing to become perhaps even less than they were at the beginning. and if not, thank you very much indeed. any wilkins talking to us from? why do go ok, let's pick not a nicholas hack on the regional reactions. he's joining us live from senate goes capital dot com. i understand that it was the organization of african states has, has been responding to this one or they've been saying while they came up with a strong statement. first of all, they acknowledge that this is an attempted, coo and have urged the military to return to their barracks. and that the integrity
6:09 pm
and the, the, the body of the president will hoc vocabulary, the integrity of it, of, of his well being, rests upon them, really urging them to dialogue with the president in order to find an air away out of what seems to be a deadlock, i mean what's happening in burkina faso while everybody in the region is watching closely why? well, because there's been a series of qu in the region when in guinea, in september, and that there's been 2 successive cou bye as he be. go into in molly and now perhaps again in burkina faso. so as henry mentioned, there's a bit of confusion about the whereabouts of president hockman, cowboy, on the one hand, that the mutineers say that he's in their hands and some local media reporting that he is safe and sound in the hands of security forces. the last thing that people
6:10 pm
want to see is a country that is divided because there is currently arm groups active in burkina faso. whether it be arm groups, link to al qaeda, or i'm groups linked to i saw and remember that what provoked all of this row, rob really was what happened last november in the nuts, out way, where security forces came under, attacked by affiliates from al qaeda. it turned out that some of them had gone without their food rations for weeks, and they were ill equipped to deal with the attacks that caused public outcry. and there was a series of protests on the streets of walker do ever since, where the president did, instead of reinforcing the security forces and giving them the means to try to combat these arm groups. he's clammed down on protests and there was just a popular protest that was bound on saturday where police fire tear gas ahead. it appears to be now a cool, still a very volatile situation here in brookins faso. rob nick,
6:11 pm
thanks very much. indeed. that is nicholas act talking to us, and i wanna bring in paul melee, his a consulting fellow from the africa program at chatham houses joining us from london. thank you very much indeed for, for being with us as, as our correspondent nick hack was just talking about. it looks as though the president has chosen not to supply the troops with the, the arms and support and medical supplies that they claim that they need. why do you think he chose that option as opposed to supporting the military? i don't think it's so much an active choice to under resourced the military or to deprive them of weapons. it's a, it's a case that his government has really struggled over the last few months to come up with a fresh strategy that could be more effective against that. you're harnessed. there's a sense that for a long time, but can if i so we're slightly self sufficient if you like in, it's fighting against the jihadists on its own territory, as we know in molly and in more recent times,
6:12 pm
nish air as well. the french and the european forced to cooper, have been involved in this fight against the jihadists. but up to very recently, burkina faso has tended to rely mostly on its own forces. and there was a growing frustration over recent months that the military machine just wasn't able to cope. and that the, the president and his government weren't coming up with a strategy that was really effective at fighting. and then these reports were soldiers, as a nickel reported, found themselves under resource under fed, feeling neglected as it were in these exposed outta line garrisons. that's really produced a lot of resentment and anger. and the other codes that have taken place in west africa, in marley, and in guinea. i've also had a bit of a political component,
6:13 pm
frustration over the manipulation of election results. all that sort of thing. but in the case of but kind of fast. so it really does seem to be driven by the security crisis itself. and a couple here was reelected only just over year ago. i have very comfortable margin and he's been holding reconciliation talks with the opposition. his political, conventional political situation seems comfortable, but does collapse in the security situation, which is seen close to half the country slide into a position where people can't move around freely and in safety means that that sort of base it public confidence in him is just slums. and that's created the space where mutinous soldiers feel 1st, that they can mutiny. and then secondly, in fact, some of them at least try and force his resignation from office and the threat from
6:14 pm
the on groups hasn't of course, gone away. what is the risk? do you think that they're going to start taking advantage of what might appear to be a vacuum of security in the country? well, i think if, if the current confusion in one going to go persisted for a long period for several weeks, for example, the name would be able to get organized and actively take advantage of the situation. but i suspect that in a practical military level, and we saw the same thing happening in molly after all the difficulties they've been there of the last year at a practical level. just as the molly, an army has continued to work very closely with the french and with the europe in forced to cooper. one suspects that in fact, the booking of a military actually out in the regions in the north and east will continue to cooperate with international forces. something that campbell had tried to launch in
6:15 pm
recent. really, in recent weeks, there's been a new initiative of working more closely with the french, getting more french support for that fight with the jihadists. and on suspects that actually a practical level on the ground that will have to be stepped up and military commanders in the field who want to do that regardless of what is happening in we're going to. but as, as today's events are showing, it may be that come to his own personal position as a political leader, it becomes untenable. even if, even if in theory he's is not actually to take we, as we don't know, it really good to get your thought a little formally forgive me. unfortunately we're running out of time but, but thank you very much indeed for joining us. and i'll just, you know, we do appreciate it. thank you anymore. i had on the news i, including the latest developments on the expedition battle facing wikileaks, found
6:16 pm
a gillian, our son was ah, fears over the deepening political crisis in honduras is factions of the president elect party, swearing liable heads of congress and top seeds. daniel the medford of wins again in melbourne groups. the quarter finals of history and openness coming up with peter is ah, lebanon's prime minister has been meeting his cabinet for the 1st time in 3 months . the government's been divided since october about the investigation into the 2020 beirut port explosion has bhalla and its ally. the amal movement won the judge, leading the inquiry to be removed. the standoff has happened. as the countries economic crisis gets worse. and the former lebanese primer society hardy and he says he suspending his role in political life and will not run in the upcoming
6:17 pm
parliamentary elections. really has urged his political party not to participate either. was there a hot has lifeless now from beirut. let's talk about soc hardy's at speech. first of all, was this a surprise that he intends to pull back? well, not really the former prime minister, a subtle. how do you, these political position has been weakened in recent years, in the past 2 weeks, he was away from the country really even look defeated. he acknowledge that he made mistakes and that he angered his allies. he even angered members of his family because of his policy and really at the expense of that, he lost the loss of support. i mean, the man at the end of the day, his traditional backers saudi arabia. they have been angry about his attitude, his conciliatory and compromising attitude with has the law. in fact, a thought on how do you the said,
6:18 pm
i don't see the possibility of any good opportunity for 11 on as long as there is iranian influence in the country. you're ready and influenced by extension, of course, has the law, it has the law. and this allies now controlled a political power in lebanon. so he's withdrawing from political life. his future movement is withdrawing from political life. they won't be shielding candidates in the upcoming elections. and made what is next? well, there are a lot of questions. this really is a political vacuum because he has been the leader since 2005 who is going to replace him a short while ago we spoke to the vice president. c of the future movement loose and we asked them that question. what he told us is that there will be attempts to form some sort of a coalition across the carry and coalition. and the anti iran outside has coalition to field come to this in the upcoming election. so this asked, the question was, how do you do something in the way compromising attitude is non confrontational.
6:19 pm
aptitude, what has below was the founding. and the way for symbol, because a new alliance to emerge, it's so early to speculate the elections are in may, but no doubt there is a deep divide in this country. subtle. how do you, the stepping aside really is a turning point 11 is politics. like i said he has been suddenly the leader in this country since 2005 the thank you very much. that's hard talking to us from bay would the u. i. e 's launched airstrikes in yemen after intercepting ballistic missiles followed by who the rebels. it's the 2nd reason to attack targeting abu dhabi last week 3 people were killed in a hoodie drawn strike. i hope you spokesman is wanting of further attacks on the u . s. e. i will tell them was a lot in response to the belligerent escalation by saudi arabia and the u. s. e. and there are crimes against or blocked people. the missiles and thrown units of our armed forces carried out to successful large military operation. job in our armed forces, stress, its full preparedness, to widen the scope of its operation in the coming period of time and to meet
6:20 pm
escalations with further escalations, our armed forces renewed warning to the foreign companies. investors within the u. e to leave as the u. e. is declared an unsafe country and the target of our future operations, so long as it's belligerents and siege against him and is not halted. toby, on the soviet, is a principal analyst for middle east and north africa, the political risk consultancy various make full croft. he says these attacks shift for security risk and the region is a difficult dilemma facing the iraqi authorities now increasingly under threats from that he sees. but at the same time, we've seen over the last 4 or 5 years, we've had a pretty extensive military campaign in yemen. and rather than reduced to miss l threats to the g c states over since that is an increase in that threat. so for the mirror is, you know, if, if, if the good on the roofs of trying to target the,
6:21 pm
the huge is more aggressively in yemen. that, of course risk still contentions further and triggering a downward spiral. but equally, if they kind of sit back and just try and defend passively against this threat, that's also something that's very difficult to do with the tax this morning. the out offensive work just to shoot in terms of targeting to ballistic missiles. but we've seen with different types of attacks, whether we sort of swarms of drones or christmas files or different types of missiles working together. it's very difficult to defend against these types of weapons once they're in the air. so for the route you saw it is, you know, that means that in terms of finding a solution is going to have to be something that goes beyond just a sort of purely defensive military posture. it will have to build no diplomacy efforts to increase the resilience of, of critical civilian and an energy infrastructure in the country. so it is a really complex task facing the authorities in terms of meeting this,
6:22 pm
this threat. that is protests against military rule in sudan have been met by security forces. again finding tear gas medics working with protest. organizers say at least 70 demonstrators have been killed since the military coup in a tobar. morgan has the latest from the capitol cartoon. it's been 3 months since the military took over power in sudan dissolving a 2 year transitional government. and since then, the protest against that take over has been ongoing. people have been taken to the streets, nearly daily to boys their anger, against the military takeover and against the army being in control and being involved into dance politics. they have been demanding that the military handled power to civilian government and return to their barracks. now since that take over to dance, millet politics has been in disarray. political parties are divided. some have shown support for the take over saying that it was necessary while others have
6:23 pm
condemned that saying that the military has a stage, a coup and disrupted a democracy. democratic transition that was underway now protested are making their way to the presidential palace. now protested, are making their way once again to the presidential palace. the last time they tried that was a week ago and security forces use tear gas and live ammunition to stop them from reaching their destination. at least 7 protesters were killed in the previous protest to the presidential palace, but that has not deterred protest. it will continue to take to the street, at least 72 people have been killed. and 2nd, bruce asked them to take over 3 months ago, more than 2000 have been injured. but despite the use of force by security forces, which though you, when says has been excessive and brutal, people continue to void their anger against the takeover. they say that they will
6:24 pm
not stop until the military hands over power to complete civilian government and returned to the barracks. the un has been trying to mediate and bridge the gap between the political parties and protest us and the military thrown initiative that it says it's hopeful and to dance political crisis, but until then protested they will to take to the street. was there anger against the military? i continued demanding a complete civilian room. you have got taliban and western diplomats have begun. the 1st official talks in europe since the group to control canister. last august. the closed door meetings with u. s. and e officials are taking place in norway. earlier on sunday, the taliban met civil society groups. diplomats are asking them to uphold basic freedoms. in return for humanitarian aid. taiwan says china flu, 39 war planes near its airspace and what's being described is the largest operation for 3 months time. on air force issued radio warnings and activated air defense

6:31 pm
and of course the investigation what's emerged on monday is that when the former pope gave evidence to a 2 year long inquiry into allegations of historical sex abuse of children by priests in southern germany. that his evidence in part was misleading. he says that when he failed to recollect a meeting in january of 1980, that was it not bad faith on his part, just bad editing of the evidence. he was presenting the problem for him. and indeed for the catholic church is that his evidence had said he wasn't there. he couldn't recall the meeting. he wasn't there, therefore he couldn't know what was talked about there and yet is now proven that indeed he was there. and the meeting matters because it was there that the case of a priest who would go on to be convicted of child sex abuse walls, disgust. he was present at that meeting. so for him,
6:32 pm
there are now many questions. what about the rest of his evidence? the investigators have looked through the evidence he gave and the evidence they gathered, and they failed to provide what they consider convincing proof of anything otherwise by the former pope bill as no question that there are now many questions about what the former pope knew when he knew it, those facts and what he did about them, remembering that he was the most senior catholic church official in that part of germany at that particular time. and he would go on to be the most senior catholic priest in the world. many questions indeed for him and the church to answer donna came talking to us from berlin. dominic, thank you very much. judges in britain have given the go ahead for gillian songs to

6:38 pm
a 4th shot might offer some extra 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 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
6:39 pm
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 at 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 that the world health organization says it's dangerous to assume that the pandemic is ending just at home . but i said that the way out of cove in 1900 will come by vaccinating at least 70 percent of the population of every country. there are different scenarios for how the funding could play out and how the acute phase could end.
