2:13 am
agreements that were signed last year between israel and 4 era countries. this represents a type of opportunity for a country like egypt to become more public, if you will, about its relationship with israel. obviously there's a, there's a strategic relationship there. there's an economic relationship. but i think the cc administration or the c c regime rather views this as an opportunity to become more public, a chance to curry favor with the, the, by an administration in the united states. bennett, as described in meeting held in the c resort of michelle, a very good, but without the resolution of this really palestinian conflict, the gyptian leader won't have the backing of his people. a recent poll showed that only 13 percent favored relations between the 2 countries. this visit could signal the re booting of an agreement, often described as a cold piece. and that how many jersey are going ahead on

2:18 am
collapse. look behind me, gas stations are close. there have been crippling fuel shortage for weeks now. it has paralyzed. the economy paralyzed the country. we are as a main thoroughfare. it's monday. the 1st day of the business week, there's supposed to be traffic and as you can see, traffic is very thin. yes, this is a government that is cash drops. this is a state which is nearly bankrupt that can no longer subsidize, essential goods essentially like fuel. and once those subsidies are lifted, not only will the price of fuel skyrocket, the price of every other commodity. so this new government will have to contain public anger, but it has received a financial lifeline lab and on the shareholder in b i m f, which means it has special drawing, right? so it has been able to withdraw more than $1000000000.00. so definitely a lifeline. how will the government spend it? will it continue subsidizing good?
2:19 am
a policy which has been criticized because it has led to modeling and importers hoarding fuel and creating a black markets. or will it use this money to support what half a $1000000.00 families vulnerable families who are desperately in need of a $100.00 cash assistance every month. so the economy has collapsed more than 80 percent of the population for the currency has collapsed. so a lot of challenges ahead, but that $1000000000.00, of course, it will help, but that is a short term solution. what this government needs to come up with is a sustainable path to recovery. a us president joe biden is visiting western states to assess the damage from major wildfires. his 1st thought was to meet fire fighters in idaho button is also trying to gather backing for a trillion dollar spending plan that includes proposals for fighting climate change is also visiting. colorado and california montana joins us live now from washington
2:20 am
. so mike, what is the president hoping to achieve on this trip? well, he's hoping to discuss with the local authorities how to better lead combat to the ongoing wildfires that have been occurring in the west coast. but that's something else as well. and that is he seeking support for his trillion dollar infrastructure bill. now, as part of that bill, he sees the combating of climate change as a very critical imperative that to be battling of climate change. he argues, can only increase the and better the economy. but it can also come to the type of wildfires that one has been seeing in recent months. it's exactly the same message that he gave during a visit to flood ravaged areas on the east coast last week. basically saying that this is a consequence of climate change. my infrastructure bill is an effective way to
2:21 am
counter climate change or to begin to do it. so supports that bill and we will help to begin to deal with climate change. and as we mentioned them, mike, he's been in california as well. on this monday, hoping to he's met with the governor, gavin newsome narry was facing this recall election presumably hoping to give him a political boost their fellow democrat. well, very much so a double duty visit to california in sacramento where he is at the moment discussing once again those wild fires. but then he'll be going to long beach where he'll appear. read a campaign event with gavin newsome, the governor of california facing that recall election. now by the support very important. all the democrats have come together to back the democratic governor in california. and this is for things that go beyond the party,
2:22 am
read and the reasons newsome has been very active in taking mitigating measures against the cobra virus. and this is one of the reasons why his opponents fought for the recall. they did not fly, cow knew some handle the cobra situation, but the results would appear to indicate at the moment he's the head by double digits that the people of california support, the way in which he combated colbert. and this in a way is a playbook perhaps for democrats as they go down the line leading to next year's midterm elections. that code and combat in cockburn has actually become as important a political point as the economy. my can live 1st in washington. thanks mike. now apple has released the software to fix the security hold that allows hackers to infect iphones and other apple devices without users, even doing anything spyware. research is captured, what they say is a new export from an s o groups pegasus spyware. to it was used to hack the phone
2:23 am
of a saudi arabian activist and the 2 targets i phones and other apple devices through i message larry magic is ceo of connect safely dot org and internet safety and privacy security organization. he joins us live via zoom from san francisco, thanks for being with us. so just 1st of all, before we get into the implications this talk us through, for the uninitiated amongst myself, included how this spyware works, in, in hacking, into your phone. and what apple has come up with to fix it, what's particularly concerning, but the spyware is, unlike most infections, where you have to click on something or do something, it just gets into your phone. you. so the user can, you know, doesn't have to do anything other than just on a phone or for that matter or a mac or an even apple watch. and once it infects your phone, then the people behind it have complete control. they can read your messages, turn on your microphone, turn on your camera, you have a 0 private fee. so it's
2:24 am
a particularly pernicious type of malware, even though it does come from a company, it's not coming from a group of criminal hackers. it's coming from a company that failed that the government, but that doesn't mean it's any less dangerous if it gets into the wrong hands. and what's the stop a company then like, like pegasus from coming up with its own updates in response to this that will bypass whatever apple has done. i mean, is this always going to be a kind of a, a cat and mouse game. you, you know, the, the nfl group which is behind this product called peg if, if it's a legitimate company and a fence. and they say that they only sell to non oppressive, legitimate governments, but they have nothing to stop a criminal from getting their hands on it. or there may be things to stop them, but it can still get through to criminals. and of course, governments, government that you might consider to be benign, i might consider to be oppressive. so i, you know, that's a political issue. but apple is very concerned about it,
2:25 am
which is why they initiated dispatch i. i found out about it today and immediately updated my iphone. i recommend everyone do that today right now because it's very dangerous and you know, apple is trying to prevent it, but haven't been successful completely in so doing what i get. so my next question, i mean you mentioned there were the people should update their phones regularly. but what else can we as ordinary phone uses, do to reduce our vulnerability to hackers? well, i'd addition to going through and updating your phone and don't just wait for it to happen automatically if they happen to do it. now, we can put pressure on companies like apple and google, which makes android to do a better job at themselves. detecting this kind of malware, it was detected by a 3rd party research group and they, they told apple and apple took action, which is good. but i'd like if the app will be more proactive in detecting it themselves, they fail. they will have better security software with their next version of their operating system to come about the fall. but you know,
2:26 am
the i phone been in the market for a long time now, and it's not secure. i wish it were good to talk to larry maggie in san francisco. thank you. thank you. a ride sharing company. uber has lost a court battle over drivers rights in the netherland. a court ruled the company must employ drivers on a permanent basis. change should give them higher wages and more rights if they for ill. goober has been ordered to pay compensation for failing to comply but says it will appeal company had all the drivers who use the app are self employed. a dozens of angry investors have stolen the headquarters of a cash strapped chinese property. develop security guards from the wall at the entrance to ever grand group where protest is shouting a company. workers group says it's facing unprecedented difficulties, but rejected rumors. it is on the brink of bankruptcy. every brand is the world's most indebted real estate company and is struggling to have raised

2:28 am
a person who wanted to make sure that all the proper person do procedures are followed so that both the mine and the community door came from this. the report paints a harrowing picture of escalating violence against defenders. latin america remains the deadliest place for them. latin america has, obviously it's very rich and that's wonderful. and also very rich in development projects and that full potential conflict between communities living in and around those resources in digits, people's group and those companies who wants to undertake development projects and very often don't consult with those communities twice. meditations, happy there. these people who are taking a piece of met at columbia stop the left with 65 that's more than doubled in mexico,
2:29 am
2nd place and murderous trains. that is only worse and since the signing of a peace deal in the country in 2016 that has opened larger parts of the country to extract of industry and new fights for resources. they can feel gloomy in human rights groups. place the blame on the government for feeling to protect activists and siding with the companies. exploiting the resources environment allow them to help only because it's the lack of a policy of guarantees for those exercising, social, and environmental leadership. and we see it when politicians fail to ratify international agreements like s because the fail to passing congress people on the front lines like mexican activist, my ts valensuela, who fights criminal groups controlling illegal mines in the sonora desert says he knows his life is on the line, i do feel afraid that i will, i will be harmed, i could be murdered, i could be harmed physically or harm, spiritually. and those,
2:30 am
those are certain things that those are realities that i have to face in my in my stance, in my, in my stance and in protecting our lands. these activists see themselves as the last line of the fence against the exploitation of resources in a worse and in climate. and they know all to well, that there's a long way to go before they can see an end to the impunity that allows them to be killed. allison and jesse it, i've gotta, ah, it says edge, get around up now the top stories international donors have pledged more than a $1000000000.00 for afghan installed. the un secretary general saying he's concerned countries. economy could collapse. the international community must find ways to make cash avail.
