9:33 pm
and even rossi is trying to develop infrastructure in them via that's why when you move around, you see in someplace the sub, for example, nice road, my bridges, public hospitals going up power sessions. people feel that that is a good thing. one thing people ask was, relations that is going to be free and faith opposition supported offer straight to they say that when they were trying to campaign, they couldn't do it effectively. the general ban on the one general banner campaigning in them. be a part of the coven 19. but the opposition say the government used it as an excuse to try to live with them. we, when they couldn't campaign effectively. they also say that some of their supportive were beaten, injured, and some of them were killed. the governor parties is what hang on a minute dream clashes. we also had our support from the ruling party, also killed and beaten britain was off or maybe friday afternoon, maybe friday evening. but i was also the only be announced in a few days time,
9:34 pm
people, and wandering. of course, if we ever lose you listen, is going to accept the results and they're concerned about political violence and the way forward for the country. sedans, former president could soon be in the hands of the international criminal court. chief prosecutor is in talks with sudanese officials to hand over those wanted for alleged atrocities committed in the for in the early 2, thousands how many, but she had ruled the country for 30 years until he was ousted in 2019. the government said he would also hand over other wanted officials to the court. a formality is a specialist on the international criminal court and a former journalist with the international justice monitor. he joins us now from nairobi. thanks very much for being with us. so i want to ask you, 1st of all, what you make of this development and in particular it's timing. thank you for having me. this is
9:35 pm
a significant development in the search for justice for the games or the doubtful conflict. and i think everybody will see everybody who has been following the issue will be waiting a big best to see with the rest of the silver. and the last, the done makes a decision to handle the brochure to the international criminal court. and just, let's just remind ourselves what exactly the former president is accused of here because this original arrest warrant was issued quite a long time ago. back in back in 2009. yes. the 2 arrest warrants of the international criminal court issued for moral bashir the, the accused of committing genocide and war crimes in the adoption conflicts. and these are risk lawrence,
9:36 pm
emanated from united nations security council resolution referring that particular conflict to the international criminal court. and the united nations security council did that after an investigation conducted by international lawyers appointed by then you entered to general. and those lawyers investigated the situation in full and drew conclusions that general tight had been committed. war crimes are be committed and drew a link between the militia, the gender, the old, and the governmental sudan, which was headed by omar. but you know, the thing and given, as i said that this, this warrant was issued several years ago more than a decade ago. how much of a challenge is it going to be relying on evidence that fall back, checking the lists of witnesses to see how many are still alive and how many of them are still able to recall accounts in detail and so on.
9:37 pm
there is, there is that reality that the prediction to see where the witnesses, the interactive with the evidence material, evidence that they've collected would have to be viewed if and when she's handed over to see for them now to see whether it's in, whether there's a need to updating sion to re conduct goodness. is it possible that some of them asked for 2 reasons between 2009 when the original order was issued? and now but more importantly, i think is the corporation. but the prosecutor seems to be seeking from the sudan government in his pigment today, or the conclusion of we think we have to. he said that one of the things that he's looking for to under asked the authorities in so done was to give them
9:38 pm
access to evidence. and he said that he's office the office of the prosecutor cc. and the government of sudan signed a memorandum of understanding, which presumably includes some of these aspects good to get your perspective commonality, thanks for talking to us. thank you for holding. now the united states says agents at the border with mexico encountered a record of 212000 people in july, us secretary of homeland security. i'll handle my york us says about half of the migrants a single adults, and that's a pos is the previous record of 188000 encounters in june. many of those arriving from central america, fleeing crime and poverty, worsened by a series of natural disasters will fill lavelle is in macallan, texas forced to feel does the administration feel at this point that it's getting
9:39 pm
a control situation? well, i mean, not as well. they would like you to believe because you know, this visit is just as much about optics as it is about policy, right. you know, we, we've had the secretary in mexico the last couple of days speaking to his counterparts, that we saw a camera harris back in jude and guatemala. say, do not come down the lens to would be migrants. and of course, she's been speaking to the officials in mexico for the last 24 hours or so. but you know, those numbers don't lie. that message is not getting through to those who will make this crossing because, you know, i mean, let's look at them. they are absolutely astronomical compared to what we've seen before. they got shut off. they have rockets, it up a 180000 in june 21 year high. that was smashed in july 210000 vibrant. crossing on average, we're looking at around about $1800.00, making that crossing every single day. and of course this goes against what we heard from president joe by not so long ago when he described this as
9:40 pm
a seasonal issue. you know, he said that during the summer months the numbers would probably falter. and you know, the reason he says thought is because that's typically what happens, right. it's august. it is texas, it's hot here. it's hot across the border and mexico and between the 2. you've got miles of scorching doesn't you've got the rio grande. this is not a place that people wants to be if they can help it, but still they are making that crossing. they are desperate to get across. the government here is trying to show conservatives who are saying they've lost the plot. they don't know what they're doing. the government is trying to say, we do have this under control, but you know, this was a visit. there was no real, huge, substantive policy change announced it was more reiteration of what we've heard before. i think for a lot of people here that we want to see actions rather than what's, what happens to the migrants when they cross into the us. well, there 3 scenarios, one is that they slip into the country on the test, and of course there are no numbers for that. rob these reasons 2 is that they are
9:41 pm
oper, handed by customs and border patrol officers or 3 they voluntarily give themselves is up because they can now begin the process of a site of now what happens is they go to this processing phase where it should take no more than 72 hours that checks the cobit criminal record checks, then they'll put on 2 buses. i'm. they are dropped off places like hey mccallum, we've got a bus station just shot over here. they often have nothing more than the clothes on that packed the shoes on their feet. maybe a bit of money in their pockets have the papers that they've been given. they have to keep hold of ahead of their asylum hearing, and then they go into the care of immigration sent to migration centers like these one piece of the catholic church with either dozens of beef. but even these places are now running out of resources. they're running out of cash, they're running out of mount power that be hampered by cove. it's one of the big ones in the city of mission, which is just a few miles away has now had to close. so all the migrants that were heading there . and now being bus to houston, which for context is nearly a 6 hour drive away because those numbers are increasing. and of course,
9:42 pm
remember with cobit as well. those migrants who go into these migration centers, which really extend it into parts just because they're running out of space. they have to have cobra safe areas, quadrant areas and non quarantine areas. so that finite space is shrinking even more. but still those numbers keep on rising. i may keep on coming. fell of our life 1st there in macau and texas. in staying in the us, one of the largest gathering sit there has open despite concerns about rising coven 19 cases. thousands of people are expected at the iowa state fair and event that more than a 1000000 people attended in 2019. it was cancelled last year for the 1st time since world war 2. no masks or vaccinations are required to attend the event of thousands of people are also gathering in neighboring south dakota for the sturgess motorcycle rally. gabriel elizondo is lifeless in de moines. gabriel,
9:43 pm
i was going through a search in corona virus cases. why did they decide to even hold the fair this year? well, mostly officials will tell you that did delta very and that we're seeing here in iowa, just really hit hard starting about 2 weeks ago. so officials here basically saying they feel comfortable holding this rally. give, holding this iowa state bear because it brings in so much money to the local economy, tens of millions of dollars. and they feel that while there is beginnings of a search in crow virus cases here, they just felt that they could handle this safely. they think that because much of the events are held outdoors, we think it'll make it safer. although there are many our events indoors as well. and the governor said no masks are required anywhere in the state. so bottom line is officials fear feel that they cancel last year,
9:44 pm
but they didn't feel they needed to cancel this year. this is the opening day of the fair 11 day event. thousands of people are here, as you can maybe see behind me this has been going on for 167 years. and this is really the single biggest event in the entire state of iowa. but bottom line is just in the last week. the number of positive corona virus cases here in the state has increased by 50 percent. now, just in the last week, over 600 people tested positive for chrome virus. many people here we are talking to are saying they feel comfortable and they say they do say, and people that are attending the fair today. what do they tell you in terms of their concerns about the virus? the yeah, we've spoken as many people here and some said a, they thought about it a little bit longer because of what's going on with the corona virus. they said talk to one, couple elderly couple. they said we were going to bring our grandkids, but we decided not to just to be
9:45 pm
a little safer. some people are wearing masks. some people aren't, lot of people are telling us it's pretty much their personal decision on how they think they should handle. a lot of people are saying that they feel because they're vaccinated, that they feel safer because of that in the state of iowa, about 47 percent of people are fully vaccinated. so a little bit below half. it's a little below the national average. but a lot of people obviously just feel that it was because it was cancelled last year . they feel the urge to get out and be here this year and simply don't feel that the dangers are high enough to where it would keep them away. outside of the people here, i would say about 10 to 20 percent are wearing masks voluntarily. the rest simply aren't a lot of outdoor space here, obviously. so it's a little safer, but there are also a lot of indoor spaces as well. where it's a lot more dangerous. i will say one of the main health officials from polk county, which is the home of de moines, was asked, would you go to the iowa state fair? she said, absolutely not. gabriel is on the line for us in des moines,
9:46 pm
iowa. thanks. i'll sport is next. on al jazeera, it was like the 1st day of school for leonor messy the origin time super joint is new teammates the p. s. g. more on that, coming up with the brought to you by accenture, that there be change the use

9:49 pm
the pandemic may have eclipsed climate change as the world's number one threat. but only briefly with the next big climate conference happening in glasgow in november . it's perhaps fitting that art and artists themselves emerging from months of locked down, turn their attention now towards that other great crisis of our time. turning, it's under what are some symptoms for the 1000000 or please try. this storyline is about species of aliens that have come from that planet. it's been destroyed by the climate. so we've come to this planet, come to to help people make a change in making us better. but we're trying to put it across in a very positive, joyful way rather than keep people down about it. so trying to convey a very important message, but that people li, feeling like uplifted like i'm going to make a change and it be exciting. and it be helping the planet with it that we're living
