7:06 pm
i'm sure was. it was a night of frustration and questions in iowa after people cast their votes in the democratic caucuses the process of adding them up and sending them to headquarters was plagued with technical issues it created a terrible image as the country watched the 1st real contests that the 2020 election ton into a farce was the candidates decided to claim victory and move on leaving iowa and its problems behind bernie sanders is looking like the eventual winner of the self described democratic socialist finish tonight or 2nd 4 years ago now he believes he's taken a big step to securing the democratic nomination to date more the beginning of the end donald trump was here mose dangerous president in modern american history the biggest loser of the night
7:07 pm
is shaping up to be former vice president joe biden for a man who campaigned on electability it's not clear to even finish in the top 3 normally that would kill a campaign he played to continue so it's on a new hampshire was south go on throughout iraq during this time of. elizabeth warren seems to me to solace sure it was suggested the massachusetts senator would be competing for the same grind with bernie sanders she says the result sends a message tonight he's already showed that americans have a deep hunger for big structural change it was also a good night for the youngest candidate in the field near people to church had no problem the clearing. victory by all indications we are going on to new hampshire victorious was. for others there's a question on how long they can sustain their campaign. a beginning to have their
7:08 pm
say. on the republican site no technical problems and a clear and predictable when for president donald trump has 2 opponents but even getting 3 percent of the vote. as the campaign all were demanding to know what went wrong it's not a good look for the democrats is a far stamp on the route to the white house it's also not good news for iowa which is keen to retain its farse the nation status when it comes to help picking the candidates alan fischer. des moines let's not speak to another of our correspondents in des moines john hendren john all this very embarrassing for the democratic party has to be said when can we expect results of the caucuses to be. will the democratic party says the results should be released sometime today on tuesday they've got a number of hours left in the day of course it's still before noon here but that
7:09 pm
really strains credulity among a lot of people here in iowa because we were expecting all of these results last night and in the absence of any actual results you had this interesting phenomenon by which the candidates each one by one seemed to declare victory with none of the vote officially tallied now people who judge and bernie sanders each released their own internal figures they say that puts them in a commanding position bernie sanders was said to have been in the lead but of course because of this international embarrassment we don't really know the democratic party says that the votes are actually secure within those $16000.00 precincts they know how many is in each of those precincts but the problem is a program that they have used to transmit them to a central point but this of course was done by the democratic party not by the state of iowa and that has been an embarrassment one that the president of the
7:10 pm
united states has pointed out he's called this an unmitigated disaster his campaign points out these are the same people who want to run health care throughout the united states so one by one these campaigns are declaring victory excess. possibly for the campaign of joe biden who has said that he thinks the democratic party of iowa ought to go to the candidates and explain the methodology of course the other candidates say he didn't do so well last night when i was only it's prided itself john as being 1st in the nation what does this mean then for the future of the iowa caucus and. well the obituaries for the iowa caucuses are already being written there's a story in politico called the death of iowa this may be excessive hand-wringing but. there is a serious question caucuses are an idiosyncratic process it's been accused of being not so democratic because it's sort of dominated by activists and the only reason
7:11 pm
that being one of the 6 caucus states left is 1st in the nation to vote is because it's a caucus and not a primary it seems like a very small point but new hampshire has a law that says it is the 1st primary in the country so if i was suddenly declared itself a primary new hampshire would move its primary before i was and that would really make i would no longer the 1st in the nation to vote and there's already talk about doing that there are a number of newspaper op eds etc with people just saying this is the last straw but whatever you say this is going to be a black eye for this state and people will likely not remember years from now who won iowa this year but they will remember what happened here indeed thank you for that john john hendren i for instance the morning. a stampede at a school in kenya has killed at least 14 children happened in a western region as students were leaving the building to go home for

7:14 pm
a compassionate. and they wanted to be seen as a god fearing figure but everything that he did went to contrary to what what he wanted the people to believe some analysts say the timing point for his leadership was in the 1982 quick tempered by a group of soldiers and politicians in the years that followed his government ordered a violent crackdown on opponents some blame for plotting the coup thousands were detained and tortured though the country remained broadly stable ethnic clashes in some parts became common especially during elections. divide and rule like most politicians do you know that's how he kept. he remained at the hill but then he had to be ability to think when he was or not and you always provide unopposed unity to be. credited by many for allowing
7:15 pm
a peaceful transition of power to his successor why keep aki but by the time he retired critics argue that the economy was in drains with extremely high rates of unemployment and poverty in addition to all that corruption patronage and tribalism had been nominees and most kenyans just wanted him gone. and still ahead on al-jazeera oh it was well tell you why people in malawi are celebrating after months of on my summer last year's presidential election last iraq's government looks to move to cleaner fuel outearn it is but why are iraqis so reluctant.

7:20 pm
a nother crisis or they could just say they accept the thing and the country will. be the $1800.00 is going to mean that it takes 40 let's decide what to do with the electoral commission that's the new kings of the siding. i think all going to be 50 if they're not going to be. put in place to make sure the issues that sold out in a maze election won't repeat themselves. libya's warring leaders are free to separate in talks in geneva aimed at ending years of chaos and conflict speaking at a news conference the un's libya envoy. said that all sides were working to transform a truce that was put in place had the berlin conference last month he also said there is new evidence that both parties have violated a noms embargo and that the new men and that new mercenaries are arriving in libya

7:22 pm
opposition to the appointment of the allow as the prime minister designate they're also criticizing shiite cleric loadout father for endorsing him and of course this march comes at a critical moment it just comes just days after a split within the protest movement between the followers of father on one hand and the other protesters who reject allow islamic nation this march aimed to improve their numbers to show that the protest movement is not over despite mohamed allow it being appointed as prime minister president and the students are determined to keep going until their demands for an independent candidate are met even if that means putting their own future on hold and keeping. a saying in iraq the government there is trying to get people to switch from imported fuel to locally produced gas all new public transport vehicles must now run on liquefied petroleum gas but despite awareness campaigns and government subsidy users are reluctant to move away
7:23 pm
from traditional asama bin job it has a story from baghdad. if. that's the sound of a cleaner start. talks he now runs on iraqi produce liquefied petroleum gas. is daily fuel cost is nearly a 3rd of what he used to pay for breaking the petrol. for sure it is more economical and hence more profitable incentives paying $16.00 per day for fuel now a pair run $6.00. it's mandatory for new public transport vehicles to install in p.g. kits although the law was passed in 2016 it was only implemented a year ago the oil ministry subsidizing the installation instead of a $1000.00 it costs around $400.00 to install an l.p.g. kit. any new project faces resistance the oil ministry has tried to tell people that there is no danger as the cylinder doesn't explode because it's
7:24 pm
a safe and with international standards the gasket is safe and complies with international standards there is propaganda to defame the ministries if it's just needs some time so people start to understand the benefits of l.p.g. . there are up to 6000000 cars in the iraqi capital more than 500 are registered every month with no new roads or bridges some of the 30000 offices and 600 cameras still can't prevent gridlock the traffic department is encouraging the use of alternative fuel to these baghdad's public transport spews fewer emissions. we have installed gaskets on different types of vehicles there have been no accidents or explosions through word of mouth other drivers are also beginning to see the benefits. that's the case among many drivers who started using gas powered taxis. yes of course i encourage all drivers to install it it's safe and nothing wrong will happen. people say it's not safe to use the gasket i have witnessed 2
7:25 pm
incidents with friends cars who did not have the kit their fuel tank caught fire because of loose wires in the fuel pump. is the 2nd largest producer of oil producing opec nations and is trying to reduce its gas flare at defining much over all its liquefied petroleum is a readily available byproduct the pilot. if transport is meant to reduce the carbon footprint and expensive refined imports the government plans to expand it to hospital restaurants and even almost but it still needs to convince iraqis that it is the safer cheaper and cleaner alternative some of it out of there. now cancer is the 2nd biggest killer after heart disease but the world health organization says millions of lives could be saved if the gap between rich and poor nations can be bridged in the fight against it is easy around one in 6 deaths are caused by cancer last year it killed nearly 10000000 people around the world the
7:26 pm
number of cases has gone shopping in the last 10 years and is expected to nearly double over the next 2 decades lung cancer is the most fatal followed by calling and stomach cancers that he chose says more than 2000000 people die every year from cancer caused by tobacco products dr andre bauer is a cancer control technical officer at the world health organization he says investing in cancer care in poor countries can save money and lives in the long run . we know that the cancer burden in poor countries is increasing quickly if we focus on prevention now we can avoid the cancer cases that we know will come in the next $23.00 decades at the same time we have to also invest in treatment capacity because many cancer patients who live in poor countries are unable to access even the most essential or basic cancer services so if you're going to tackle this major cancer and public health challenge we have to do both prevention and control
7:27 pm
because in fact there are many lifestyle changes that we can make that will reduce our cancer risk for colon cancer as an example we know that diet makes a big difference both the foods that we eat and the risk that we have to develop obesity that is related to the foods that we eat those 2 factors significantly impact the likelihood that an individual will develop cancer there are many countries that are struggling to get health on the agenda because there are limited resources and there is a perception that diseases have to compete amongst each other but what we've done with this report this is show that cancer should not be seen as a competing disease in fact if we invest wisely we can save lives and add societal value that is in the form of reentry into employment productivity gains and broader societal benefits. one of the most polluted cities in the world as the people of new delhi prepared to vote in local elections this week many are demanding action to improve equity in india's capital last year evolution levels were 40 times the
