a look at what it's like to live with the lingering effects of the code. 9 paying attention. ah hello, i am rebecca riches. welcome to the program. it's now 2 weeks until the tokyo and, and pick said you to stop that they'll be a game without spectators organizes have announced a total ban on both foreign and domestic fans. attending the event. after new corona virus state of emergency was declared across parts of japan. the games will be the 1st in a limb, pick history to be held behind closed doors, and some say they shouldn't be happening at all in the matter late than never. some might say, after a long journey through all of japan's 47 prefixes, the olympic flame has finally arrived in tokyo, one year behind schedule,
due to the corona virus pandemic. rising cove in 1900 cases in the capital. also, many members of the public were not there to greet the flame authorities announced the state of emergency in tokyo for the duration of the games to try to curb to spread the virus. amid fears of the delta variance, the measure mostly limits alcohol sales and restaurant opening hours to try to stop contagion. but it also means these will be the 1st 2 limpid games without fans in attendance. stadiums like this one will be mostly empty. the top the government has restrictions for tokyo site i'mma. can i go and sheba? please make sure that would have kept event attendance at 50 percent. the venue capacity up to 5000 people excited data to go to this. we go. we haven't decided to allow no fans during the games as a stricter measure to prevent further spread of the virus,
not even stop. the decision has put a damper on the mood just 2 weeks ahead of the opening ceremony. polls show large swats of the public, don't want the games to take place. some people are even taking to the street. who are you doing? what do you people, what i don't think we should hold the olympics in such a situation. together with these people who share my same opinion, we want to protest against the olympics to the very end and we want them to be cancelled. that's why i came here today. but organizers are not giving up and are determined to move forward. the olympic flame may be small right now, but they hope it will help spark enthusiasm ahead of these unprecedented games. taken. moreland springing generalist mountain france, he joined us from tokyo mountain. the olympic flame has arrived in tokyo to quite
a lackluster reception. how much enthusiasm overall is there in japan for the games? when i think there's a variety of rather harsh reactions here to the decision yesterday, not to allow any spectators into the stadiums. many japanese who were able to get the tickets 2 years ago, naturally disappointed. and so the $80000.00 volunteers were spent a month preparing and were not had much to do without spectators. and overall i think there's a sense of defeat here. many japanese still don't want the olympics to happen, so they are dissatisfied and angry. and you can see that on social media. and rhetoric, owners complain that they have to close early in the evening and are not allowed to serve. louis frightens their likelihood and all of this just for the olympics to be staged. and another part of the public in japan is that the japan has broken its promise to make these games
a success with our spectators. that hardly seems possible anymore. and some japanese people i talked to here are a bit ashamed of this failure. so quite a split opinion that you might say that although cases are surging there at the moment, japan overall has, well, it's really low cases. are the authorities just being overly cautious when they have a big problem, they have promised to stage secure and save games, and now they have to make sure this happens. so the number of new infections in tokyo is quite low. it's so far below the peak levels we yesterday we had about $900.00 cases and the death of a ryan makes up to 20 percent out of them. but prime minister yoshi just to justify this whole state of emergency for the region with its almost 40000000 inhabitants by saying that he wants to prevent the national outbreak of the pandemic. and of
course, this is being done with an eye on the some of the big which begin in 2 weeks today . and it is imperative to prevent depend them from effecting the staging of the games. so the virus must be contained now as far as possible. that is the idea how the immunization program going there relate up to the games. immunization rates had been quite low, as i mean some improvement that's taken problem. the government had to take into account yesterday in its decision the vaccination speed has risen quite a lot. now about 15 percent of the japanese population vaccinated twice and about 25 percent. have gotten one shot. but at the moment, japan is running low on vaccines, so the speed of explanations cannot be increased. and that is also another reason why this state of emergency will last until the middle of august. when
japan seemed determined to push on with the games, despite everything mam fritz journalist in japan, thanks very much and speaking to us, us president joe biden has announced american troops. we'll leave afghans donnelly, 2 weeks earlier than planned by august 31st. that despite the taliban forces making rapid advances across the country, which will bring an end to the longest us war and nearly 20 year conflict. but the departure of nato troops is leaving many worried about a swift deterioration of security in afghanistan. the, the tally been say, this footage shows them celebrating after using control of the keyboard. they're crossing into iran. it was one of several advances made by the militants throughout ganesh, done in recent weeks. they've been gaining ground since the u. s. and now the departure of its military by the end of august, the same military that out of them from power in 2001 in
washington, president biden defended the speed of the withdrawal, saying the u. s. would no longer sustain the human cost of a conflict that cannot change. i've gotten instant course. got it. so let me ask those who want us to stay. how many more? how many thousands more americans, daughters, and sons? are you willing to risk? i will much send another generation americans to war and i can stand with no reasonable expectation of achieving the different outcome. but by and also argued, the u. s. had achieved its original goal of routing al qaeda after the $911.00 terror attacks that led to the invasion. he said the decision to leave was overdue . we did not go to afghanistan to nation bill. and it's the right and the responsibility of afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country. just days ago,
the u. s. pulled out of bag from air base near capitol the center of its military operations for nearly 2 decades. the pentagon says the withdrawal of us forces is now more than 90 percent complete. as foreign troops depart, the african military struggling to push back the taliban. like here enough gun is tense, northwest peace talks between the government and the militants. have so far failed . and many fear the violence will only get worse once the last us soldiers have returned home. friends, marty is a freelance journalist in afghanistan. he joins me now from the capital cobble from welcome the us troops leaving the country. and of course those races mainly rural gains made by the taliban. how likely do you think it is that the entire country could fall to the telephone?
president bind time, this term to scenario highly unlikely. and i, as well as all the knowledgeable analysts degree, is not to say that the situation is not very dire. as you said, they have made unprecedented gains on that 50 plus the rates in the pulse a little bit over 2 months that they have taken over. however, that is nowhere. if he that so far, they haven't made a serious attempt to take over a provincial capital. this seems from the poly both sides to be a deliberate decision. because they seem to now have to strategy to take over rural areas and demand a surrender of african government at the negotiating table. and they will pursue that in the foreseeable future. as far as it looks now, even if they would abandon this strategy and would try the ones that has been so forced. there is a question whether the tony bone have enough enough manpower to like actually take
over everything they might be able to take over several provinces, but not swiftly. the whole country. in fact, i have spoken by phone to people in like newly conquered district, and they told me to barely and totally bond our left because they moved them to the new front lines. so that's why hope all of the whole country is still unlikely at this time. right. after 20 years of international support, the afghan national army still not able to completely defeat the taliban and it seems not even really keep them at bay. can you explain why that is? there are several reasons. one thing that is important to us presidents was already before president biden announced the withdrawal, pretty small, and they didn't do that much. so most operations were done by african government forces. so now that they lost that many districts seems to be more psychological issue in many districts,
government forces abandoned them without being like re forced by to tale bonding. wasn't that the that probably about half the overwhelming military power to the forced them out. and then several districts were abandoned like that without apparently you to a clear plan. another thing is that like the taliban as a movement, they have like an advantage in this as a metric warfare. and at the end, reality is also a not insignificant parts of the population that probably don't have support, especially in the rural areas. so there it is sometimes that the tale bone have more support than the government and that allows them to to like, make them the phone says and makes it difficult for the african government forces. ok, and we're running out of time, but i really want to get a sense about the african people themselves. i mean, i'll be happy to see the end of foreign troops in the country or is ever since
they're being let down by the us and its allies. it's very split. some people profited from, from the us presence from the progress that was made. they are worried, they fear what will happen if the americans leave completely and if the poly bong move forward like this, there are orders that have little benefit of the progress that remain like very rural, very traditionalist and religious. and they are happy that like troops apart. so it's like really it's you have everything. generalist friends, mounting in campbell, africa. stan, thanks very much for the analysis. let's take a look now at some of the stories making news around the world. russia and western nations are divided over access to aid into north with syria, from turkey. moscow wants the u. n. to authorize the extension of a delivery for just 6 months, that western nations and pushing for one year. millions of people depend on getting

something was almost everyone can face and when you very in the focus of the fight against covert now, yes, the government especially is trying to make sure that they are not caught unaware to be made to pay the job. the 2nd be in the indian side, but not utilizing how difficult the dental could become for the country of detected abil. again, december and in march, week before the 2nd the has the seeing the end game of the fight against now the new year for the dead red and don't be a couple 100 the was but india has already declared to read the concern. but do be that much more, he thought the think really needed to find out if the judy got to lead to confirm it of more and it, but it is more that now in terms of fighting off a 3rd wave, vaccinations are expected to be k. how is the vaccination rollout going?

years, a venue for the top exhibitions. hollywood act. valium, defoe's y'all. time friend of artist julian, snapple, has been shooting a film nearby. on a day off. he came to take in an exhibition of large format, novel paintings. ah. when i'm here by myself, i took it all in and of course the miracle of this show. and i'm not saying that just to be pollyanna positive is it's so well integrated, these pieces look like it was made for, for this specific chapel. and it all comes together just purely and symbolically. and there's, there's a dialogue going on here. but they're all speaking the same language,
all these elements. judy and novel dedicated these work to his friend, the painter psy tombly who died 10 years ago. the series is called on the day side died. we caught up with the painter and film director by assume at his home in montauk, on americas east coast. shaky camera work, we cooked up novel, free style. i painted them out here. i painted them the day that i found the site, my dot a little that called me from italy. she was there. so that was 6 hours ahead of us in to tell me i was dead and i had this material around and i laid the things out and pain the pain. it's ah, them outside i just wanted to paint the pain. and so i didn't think of where they
were going to go. everything is not so premeditated, you know, in 10 years old, they seem to have found the home here. the large campuses were created by applying every like white paint to top holdings taken from military trucks or so our mental fits with the kind of clean, clean this of the chapel. and also just that kind of austerity of matters spiritual. let's get serious. now we get some crosses. ah julian, julian, i'm looking at your paintings from this beautiful place and the roof is

i answer because what would you think of i told you that excessive meat consumption harms both our health and also our planet. we can change our diet and improve the state of the planet. the minister noted the beef production in particular requires huge amounts of water and produces greenhouse gases responsible for global warming . some surveys have showed spaniards as europe's top carnivores consuming an average. 98 kilograms of meter year. well above the average of 76. the suggestion to meet and take prompted the prime minister to way in from an official trip to let the way near estoppel. and because controversy is personal to me, as far as i'm concerned, there's nothing better that i'm perfectly done state interesting, by the way, convincing spaniards to change their meat loving ways may prove to be a hard so it will change a w news. here's a reminder of our top story,
the olympic flame as arrived in tokyo, 2 weeks before the games due to stuff, but they'll be no spectators in the stadiums due to a new corona, virus state of emergency. ah say to now peter craven is up next with to the point. we'll have more headlines for you at the top of the out. i'm rebecca versus thanks for watching. the news . the news, the news?
