exacerbated by a surge in deaths among health care workers. >> translator: when many health care workers were being tested positive, my wife risked her life. >> dr. wickan was one of several not vaccinated. >> china's cyanovac were not always safe. a pediatrician lost her brother to covid. despite being fully immunized, her brother caught the virus in late july and unknowingly spread it to his loved ones. >> translator: 13 members of my family were infected, including my father, my mother, my brother's family, his wife and his 2-year-old child. >> reporter: though numbers have now started to improve, fatalities of doctors at the

1:08 am
it. xi jinping infuriated taipei when he called for taiwan's peaceful reunification of the main land. cnn's will ripley was at the national parade and has more from taipei. >> reporter: this may not mass the massive scale for china, but for taiwan, this is an extraordinary sight. missiles rolling through the capitol, an ominous sign of escalating regional tensions. taiwan's military has never played a more prominent role as it has this year. the overall atmosphere is festive, this island is increasingly concerned about the behavior of mainland china. provocative china. more than 100 planes have entered the air zone in more than one week this month. with those ariel incursions come new propaganda videos vowing to
1:09 am
defend their national sovereignty and the weapons on display here. taiwan is vowing to up its national spending on defense by billions of dollars. in 2020 alon$2020 alone they ar 5r billion of weapons including f-16 fighters and patriot missiles. increasingly they're calling on the support of the united states and other democratic regional allies to come to taiwan's events. taiwan's president sign wen laid out the future of not just taiwan but of the world. >> translator: at this moment free and democratic countries have been alerted to the expansion of authoritarianism and taiwan is on the forefront of the defense line of fellow democracies. >> reporter: defending that future comes at a cost. taiwan has upped the military
1:10 am
spending even after they struggled to get a voluntary force. will these weapons, will the help of the united states be enough to defend against the threat from an increasingly assertive main land china as president xi jinping vows to, in his words, reunify the island. he's claimed this island as his own territory. taiwan points out they've never been ruled by the communist party of china and they say they plan to keep it that way putting their military on full display here. will ripley, cnn, taiwan. to iraq now where possible low turnout and calls for boycotts trying to undermine the country's election. voting to decide the next parliament and prime minister has been over for four hours now. ethnic and religious fault lines
1:11 am
and corruption are the main issues. here's what some iraqis were saying going into the vote. >> translator: the elections need to be first of all impartial. that is something we ask for. it has been 16 years. we do not want old faces, we want new faces, the youth. we want youth full energy, someone to sympathize with the youth. we as youth want someone to represent us in the parliament. >> translator: even if there is great degree of confidence, there are always interferences but that does not mean that the whole population should not participate in the vote. people have to participate in order to change things. >> translator: why won't i vote? i have no fate in those running for re-election. look at the garbage, the filth. where are the proj snekts the previous government's proj snekts where are they. >> for the latest we have cnn's
1:12 am
sam kiley tracking events from abu dhabi. sam, this election was brought on by corruption, lack of services. this would be a great day for those iraqis demanding change frmpt what we just heard there, it doesn't seem that that's the case. why not? >> reporter: well, as you rightly point out, kim, this goes back to 2019 and the massive demonstrations that we covered there, a lot of them against corruption, inequality but also the heavy influence of iran and importantly in the iraqi context a lot of those demonstrators were shia. iran being a shia dominated theocracy. there's a huge movement, particularly among young people, members of the middle classes caught fire in 2019. resulting in the deaths of some 600 people in killings conducted against those demonstrators and others who have disappeared
1:13 am
politically. a very fraught period that caused collapse of one government and these, if you like, premature, early elections against that background though we are now seeing what is anticipated to be a very low turnout, particularly among the sorts of people that were demonstrating in order to change their government and part of the reason for that, i think, kim is there have been in a sense a level of state capture particularly within the bureaucracies of iraq, particularly by the pro iranian hard line shia parties and now the leader of a different shia block. looks like he might win by no means a majority but the larger share. he has been a political chameleon but is opposed to the iranian influence. >> as you say, iran has vested interest in the results. so too does the u.s.
1:14 am
for president biden especially after what happened in afghanistan, what's a good outcome? >> well, stability think is what the regional players really want to see in iraq. from the united states perspective there's also interesting tleel iraq has been playing in reaching some kind of facilitating the early stages of context between iran and saudi arabia. de-escalate regional tensions separate really from the biden administration. from the american administration's perspective, u.s. troops in terms of combat role are out or leaving iraq. there's not going to be a flood of refugees or anything like that in the wake of the u.s. withdrawal really running in parallel with what we've seen in afghanistan but in very, very different circumstances. the war against the islamic state is very much handled by
1:15 am
the iraqis and u.s. allies in northern syria. so stability really is what the biden administration is looking for. >> all right. we'll continue to follow the results there. really appreciate it. opposition groups in the czech republic appear to have eked out a razor thing victory in parliamentary elections. cheers erupted in prague as the center right coalition narrowly won the majority in saturday's vote. the leaders of the opposition groups are pledging to work together to form a new government. >> translator: ladies and gentlemen, friends, the democratic coalitions have a majority in the lower house and now have a chance to create a majority government. that is the change. we are the change.
1:16 am
you are the change. >> so if they succeed, it will end the prime minister's grip on power even though his populus group won the most votes of any party. the father of pakistan's nuclear program has died so while his own country haled him as a hero, western nations saw him as a dangerous threat to security. we'll have more on his life next and why passengers were forced to evacuate their plane after a serious incident at new york's laguardia airport. we'll have more on that coming up. stay with us. with hydration that beats the $400 cream. tried. tested. never bested. shop at

1:20 am
to treat 16 types of advanced cancer. and is being studied in hundreds of clinical trials exploring ways to treat even more types of cancer. it's tru. keytruda from merck. see the different types of cancer keytruda is approved to treat at, and ask your doctor if keytruda can be part of your story. pakistani officials are paying tribute to the man known as the father of the nation's nuclear weapons program. abdul kadir khan known as aq passed away at hospital. he's seen as a dangerous threat by the west. pakistan's prime minister calls
1:21 am
him the father of pakistan. tell us more about the man and his controversial legacy. >> reporter: kim, he is known as being the father of pakistan's nuclear program. it's an honor that is revered here in pakistan. he is revered across the political spectrum, across all ethnicities. pakistanis rarely unite to praise their public figures. he is one who did unite pakistanis. he does have a controversial legacy. he was known and was accused by the united states and the european union for vast -- foreheading a vast nuclear proliferation program which shared nuclear secrets with north korea, with libya, with iran and he had been placed under house arrest by pakistan's
1:22 am
then leader in 2004 which was lifted in 2009, however, he had -- his movements had been severely restricted partially due to his safety but also under fears that he might share more information with other parties. he is being afforded a state funeral in pakistan. there's been a notification announced that all pakistani flags will be flown at half mast throughout the country. there's been an outpouring of tributes for the man who is said to have strengthened pakistan's defenses in a hostile neighborhood with neighboring india which has long been becoming a nuclear state as well. in the late '90s pakistan was strengthened according to many pakistanis. most pakistanis love him. a state funeral will be held at
1:23 am
amos being which is iconic and large in istanbul. yes, a complicated legacy but someone, as you said, who is haled as a hero and a villain. kim? >> sophia in pakistan. thank you so much. now turning to political turmoil in central europe. efforts are underway to designate a successor to austria's high profile antiimmigration chancellor. he stepped town after his office was raided by investigators. opposition parties have threatened to bring a vote of no confidence against him next week. we have the story from london. take us through the events that led to this. >> absolutely. prosecutors raided the office of mr. kurtz. he and nine other officials linked to him are under investigation for allegations of bribery, corruption.
1:24 am
essentially the allegations are that public funds were used to obtain a favorable poll for kurtz and to publish that poll in the media. it's the second time kurtz has been forced to end his tenure before it was completed and the second time that it has led to corruption. very serious concerns about the ability to lead, about his legitimacy to lead. mr. kurtz denying these allegations but stepping down, he says, to give his country a sense of stability at this time. but this has larger implications, kim, beyond austria which is wrangling to see who leads the country next. kurtz has proposed someone but we'll see if it happens. germany is looking to kurtz because he is a young, charismatic figure at a time
1:25 am
when center right parties are failing and lagging behind in polls. at age 31 kurtz was the youngest or among the youngest democratically elected leaders in the world. he was seen to really help this party galvin niez its supporters at a time when there was strong antiimmigration sentiment across the country and across parts of europe. i was in berlin last month during the elections and there was a shock defeat for the christian democratic union of angela merkel. they were looking to what's happening in austria because that's a center right party able to form a coalition with the green party in austria. that conservative politics and progressive politics is what they're looking at and looking to. all of that puts it into question. the larger concern here, kim, is because the center right parties are able to galvanize both the
1:26 am
left and the right, does that mean moving towards more extreme far right parties for those in the voting public who can't find a relevant center right party for them? a lot of questions about politics at large here. for now, austria looking for someone to lead after kurtz. >> all right. thank you so much. we appreciate it. an airline passenger was taken into custody saturday after a security incident forced a plane to make an emergency landing at new york's laguardia airport. social media video shows people standing on the tarmac and law enforcement responding but it isn't clear whether the video shows the passenger placed in kun did i. other travelers alerted the fly crew and passenger about the suspicious and erratic behavior. they're monitoring the situation. there's no reason to believe anyone is in danger. afghan women face harsh

1:31 am
taliban seized control a month ago. they have been meeting in doha sidoha, the first since they took over. they want them to unfreeze funds beginning to afghanistan. that would stabilize the country which is in the global community's best interests. the doha meetings are a continuation of pragmatic costs. those are women's rights and the safe passage out of the country. through all of this, women in kabul are taking a stand as they're trying to roll back their rights. cnn's clarissa ward has the story. >> reporter: standing quietly but defiantly. they're here to protest the taliban's de facto ban on girls going to school after fifth grade. a small act of great courage.
1:32 am
taliban fighters start to pour in. heavily armed presence a menacing question mark. a new arrival appears unsure to get out of the car. for a moment it seems the taliban may have come to protect the women but the illusion is quickly shattered. members from the taliban have come in and telling everyone to put away their cameras. senior talib rips the phone out of a woman's hand. she shove journalists back. we try to keep filming but the taliban don't wand the world to see. a machine gun sends a clear message. the protest is over.
1:33 am
we're told he is the head of the taliban's intelligence services in kabul and that the women did not have permission to protest. why does a small group of women asking for their right to be educated threaten you so much? >> translator: i respect women's rights. i respect human rights, he says. if i didn't respect women, they wouldn't be standing here. >> reporter: would you have given them permission if they had asked for it? >> translator: yes, of course, he says, we would have. but permissions are elusive and previous protests have met a similar fate. on the streets in the neighborhood, the consequences of one recent demonstration can still be seen. at almost every beauty salon images of women's faces have been defaced. the women inside this salon are too scared to appear on camera.
1:34 am
hi. how are you? i asked them about the posters outside. who did it? >> taliban. >> reporter: the taliban did it? the taliban came and drove away the protesters, then they cursed us, said to remove the posters. they told us to put on a burka and sit in our homes, but this city is full of brave women who refused to do that. the activist and mother of five says she was forced to become a taxi driver after her husband was murdered one year ago leaving behind his car but little else. tell me a little bit about how life has changed for you. >> translator: a lot of changes. i'm sorry. imsatisfy orie. >> reporter: it's okay. take your time. it's okay.
1:35 am
>> translator: since the taliban regime has come to power, it has become very difficult. >> reporter: she offers to take us for a ride. it's another small act of courageous resistance. while the taliban have not officially banned women from driving, she says she has received threats and that the militants hit her car two weeks ago as a warning. i see the men, they stare at you. they look at you. >> reporter: yes. it's not long before she picks up fare. she usually picks up women. are you aware of the risks you take every day going out and doing your work? >> translator: yes. yes. some places where i see taliban checkpoints i'm forced to go on
1:36 am
different streets. >> reporter: english teacher is also working hard to give her students a better future. the past here has not been easy. in may a horrific bombing targeted the school where she teaches taking more than 80 innocent lives. we were here when the explosions happened? did you see it with your own eyes? >> very huge explosion. >> reporter: incredibly, the school reopened. weeks later, the taliban swept to power and announced for the time being 6th through 12th grade will be closed at the school. just very striking that a bomb was not able to stop these girls from coming to school but now
1:37 am
the taliban has been able to stop them from coming to school. >> yes, it's true. every day i see taliban on the streets, i be afraid. >> reporter: but you're still coming here every day. you're still teaching? >> yes. what should we do? what should we do? it's just the thing that we can do for our children, for our daughters, for our girls. >> reporter: in the fifth grade classroom the girls are excited to test their english skills. hi. >> hi. >> reporter: i want you to raise your hand if you love school wow! everybody loves school. this may well be the last year they get to come and study yet they are still full of hope for the future. raise your hand to tell me what you want to be when you grow up. what do you want to be? >> doctor. >> reporter: doctor.
1:38 am
okay. who else wants to be a doctor? oh, wow. there are a lot of doctors. 16-year-old hanna used to have dreams, too. she wanted to be a dentist. the explosion at her school left her with serious injuries but she was brave enough to go back for the sake, she says, of her close friend who could not. >> translator: i felt i must go back and study for the peace of her soul. i need to make her wishes and dreams come true. >> reporter: so right now you cannot go to school. how does that make you feel? >> translator: i feel all of my dreams are crushed and buried. for i won't be allowed to go to school and study. all my motivation is completely gone.
1:39 am
>> reporter: it's okay. take your time. it's okay. if you want to stop, we can stop. it's okay. >> translator: no. the taliban are the people who are the cause of the situation i'm in right now. my spirit is gone. my dreams are buried. >> reporter: and yet recently she has started to read her books again, study a little bit every day. just one more small act of great courage.

on this columbus day weekend in the u.s., joe biden has done something no other president has done before. he issued a proclamation recognizing indigenous people's day. more than 100 cities and towns have replaced columbus day with that. with the stroke of her pen's maine's governor did away with columbus day in 2019. the white house acknowledged the president's proclamation doesn't go that far. listen to this. >> well, today is both columbus day, as well as indigenous people's day. i'm not aware of any discussion of ending that -- either ending the prior federal holiday at this point but i know that recognizing today as indigenous people's day is something the president felt strongly about personally. he's happy to be the first president to celebrate and to
1:45 am
make it the history moving forward. >> vaughn sharp is the president of national congress of american indians and she joined me from lake quinault, washington. thanks for joining us. president biden became the first president to proclaim friday being indigenous people's day. but as we heard there, unlike many cities and states, he didn't replace columbus day with indigenous people's day. was this a mistake making this a half measure and not fully replacing columbus day? >> i think it's a step in the right direction. we know as tribal nations that there's a truth to be told and there are many truths that make up this country and as we progress and as we reconcile with our past, we're taking incremental steps but ultimately we do see this as a very positive move. >> but would you like to see it replaced?
1:46 am
>> yes, absolutely. >> also making news this week, the president undoing the cuts made by the trump administration to two national monuments in utah. this puts 2 million acres back into the national monuments. i went there a couple of years ago to cover that issue when president trump was about to shrink those areas by some 85% and spoke to some indigenous leaders there about what effect this would have. for our leaders who may not be familiar with this area, why is this reversal so important? >> this reversal is critically important for our effort to ensure that our secret sites maintain that nature from when time began to the end of time. we have a very spiritual connection with these places. we've never relinquished that spiritual connection. it's critically important to us. >> talk to me a bit more about that. there is so much history in that land and having it sort of
1:47 am
shrunk and exposed to, you know, logging, mining, other things like that, what effect would that have had? >> it would have a devastating effect. when we consider our entire being, mental, physical, spiritual well-being, just where we are as a country in terms of all of the implications to our natural world through climate change and other apocalyptic challenges we are facing, there are many things we don't have control over. we can make a conscious and intentional intent to protect them, not just native americans but every citizen of the country. >> you just touched on the number of issues that are facing the indigenous communities there. covid is one of them. indigenous people i'm seeing are among the highest risk of dying of covid-19 than any other ethnic group and are at least twice as likely to die from covid-19 than white people. why have they been at such high risk during this pandemic?
1:48 am
>> i think it's important to note that native americans have been incredibly vulnerable even before the pandemic. we have a failed system of our trustee failing to live up to treaty, commitments and obligations. there was a report by u.s. civil rights called the broken promises report and it detailed not one federal agency is living up to its trust responsibilities. when you're talking about health care, infrastructure, access to all of those things, we are failing on every metric. this exposure made the world clear and told the world what we've already known long before covid. >> yeah. in canada there have been many tragic headlines this year about the discoveries of indigenous people who have been died after being taken from their homes and placed in schools. canada has a long way to go when it comes to aboriginal issues.

there's an attempt to grapple with the sad piece of the past much more than the u.s. the issue of indian boarding schools has been ignored. interior secretary deb haaland announced an investigation. there was a bill introduced in congress to establish an american indian truth acommitte about this. why spend time and all that political capitol on the past? what would you say to that? >> we have to as a country spend the time. this is one of the darkest chapters in history no one talks about even in our own communities. it's so hard for us. some of these things are unspeakable. when we try to talk to some of our elders, the victims of boarding schools, it is so painful. generation after generation
1:50 am
we've had to carry this as well as this country. it's so important for us to put up a mirror and take a cold, hard look into that past to reconcile so we can begin to heal as a country. it is important. it's the darkest chapter, foundational in this country. until we do, we're going to continue to experience multi-generational trauma, pain and division. it's important for all of us to face that cold, dark past. >> so many challenges ahead but really appreciate your insight into all of these issues. president of the national congress of american indians. thank you for joining us. >> yes. stay well. thank you. coming up here on "cnn newsroom," the volcano on the canary islands keeps erupting destroying even more homes. residents tell us their livelihoods are gone. ctual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus.
