5:01 am
summit as well. lead us pledge to slash methane emissions and reverse deforestation . and america's public health agency green lights coded 19 vaccines with children between 5 and 11. that's been biden colds returning point in the condom. ah, one year of the conflict broke out and the northern region of to dry ethiopia, government has declared a state of emergency after shop escalation and fighting, to grow and rebels claim to have captured towns on the highway leading to the capital, addis ababa. but that's been disputed by the government. prime minister abbey ahmed has called an ali pippins to take up arms against to grow and fight it. frank had good reports, a new frontier. and if you appear swore rebels, antigua, i say, be advancing further south towards the capital, addis ababa. the federal government has declared
5:02 am
a nation wide state of emergency. but it might the decree or does the state to have the right to detain or arrest anyone suspected of working with or assisting the terrorist group. and you, the emergency order dictates that without permission granted from a designated authority is to be no gathering or public protest allowed by prime minister abi amad. as asked all if your pins to mobilize and fight back against the rebels. and the facade was little. there are many challenges, but i can tell you with certainty, without a doubt we will score a comprehensive victory in just a few days. the rebels from the northern te gray state say they have seized the town. so they say on comm, bolger, which are in the neighboring amara state, the 2 are on a major highway leading to the capitol. the federal government has disputed those claims. we have to make sure that our children, i'm not dying from hunger, we have to make sure that they have access to an access to buy out. so we do what
5:03 am
it takes to make sure that the cd is broken. if flatness medicaid, it is what it takes to see when the united states has warned, the te, gray people celebration front all the t p a left against any such move. let me be clear, we oppose any 'til moved to us. or any attempt by the t p. o to procedure us del concerns that violence could escalate with the green rebels. joining forces with the oro, more liberation army and arms group in the region surrounding the capitol. of this, there is a new marriage of convenience alliance between at least a fraction of the liberation front. and a, because the abby has managed to alienate the amo the, including some harass. so he is really increasing the isolated and the dpi left is
5:04 am
trying to take advantage of that situation as well as o l. and it's found least like these well being the highest price for the shifting back lines of if he'll be us war. that's right. don't for nearly a year, more than 2 and a half 1000000 people have been forced to leave their homes and around 400000, on the brink of famine, bianca altogether. well as growing international pressure to bring an end to the, to great conflict, to you as president joe biden, suspending ethiopia from a key trade program for what he calls gross violations of human rights. meanwhile, the un is urging and immediate end to the violence to enable the delivery of life saving humanitarian aid. we have been in touch with the officials in ethiopia, and the secretary general himself has spoken repeatedly with prime minister abbey ahmed. to see what can be done to bring the violence to a halt and,
5:05 am
and also of course to allow for the full scale return of humanitarian assistance to the places that need it, including the places like mckayla and a fire. so let's bring in david shin, he's a former us ambassador to ethiopia. he's currently a professor of international relations at george washington university, and he joins us via skype from washington, d. c. david. good to have you back. so how significant is this announcement by president, by that if you, if you could lose access to this lucrative us trade program, why now? and what does it mean? well, it's a very significant decision by the united states. it is important to understand that it hasn't happened yet. in other words, as of july, there's a january 1 day at which it may become effective if there is no movement towards he's a young man happens. i think he is. ready ready likely to lose about a quarter of a $1000000000.00 and potential exports to the united states. so that's
5:06 am
a lot more come to your line here. the reason now for this session is the situation is getting worse on the ground. yet david, it's worth pointing out the by the ministrations, also preparing to issue sanctions against those involved in perpetrating the conflict. but all the threats of sanctions and losing access to the trade deal going to be enough to pressure both sides to step back. probably not going to require steps by other international community members who are equally concerned about what is happening and ethiopia, by involving their pressure on both sides. not just the government of the year, but at this point also the to grand people's liberation front re chance to extend the battle and do now far and i'm har. regions. yeah. and we recently filled in marriage of convenience, didn't we? between the remote liberation front and c, p fighters and the u. s. has warned the rebels against advancing on the capital is
5:07 am
the conflict in danger of fiercely escalating david? well, it already has seriously escalated the end that the grand forces of apparently entered above that say, and convulsions, which is deep in har region territory. if it were to go as far as out of some bomber, they would be catastrophic situation. we don't really know what the liberation army is up to. i've seen very much reporting on their activity and it is a marriage of convenience. these 2 groups don't really have that much in common except that they have for the moment any way or common enemy. so, so we have significant us pressure on ethiopian government, the t p l f, a joining up with other fights in groups. the prime minister abbey aman declared the state of emergency and calling on all citizens to take up palms. it looks like david ethiopia, in real trouble. could the government actually fall? do you think?
5:08 am
no, it isn't co, i think it's some distance away from falling. but if it stays on this course, and if the, the forces are aligned against the continue to make progress, then yes, that would be a possibility. and that would be most unfortunate. the key is to bring this complex to a cease fire situation or media like that. just a final thought to you. the united nation has already found the alarm. it says the conflicts driven something like 400000 people into famine like conditions up to 7000000 in desperate need of food assistance. how, why we did the u. s. administration about the worsening humanitarian crisis that i think that is really what is driving us concerning this point. the managerial prices as clearly worse and worse and t gray regions. it's now expanded into part of our region. the song part of our far region. well,
5:09 am
it's getting out of control and it absolutely has to be brought to a haul or you're going to have the many civilians. and david, she's really good to get your insight on this. thank you very much. indeed for talking to us tough chemist on now where at least 19 people are dead and another 50 injured in an attack on cobbles, largest military hospital among those killed was the commander, but taliban special forces was also in charge of cargo security. i saw train responsibility shot, a balance reports from cobbled. oh wow. when a can consensual cobble and telephone security forces run towards the size of an explosion, smoke leads them towards dallas, han military hospital, across the road from the now abandoned us embassy. one device was decent, aged at the hospital interim, allowing attackers to move in. 20 minutes later, 2nd exploded inside the compound. with this man,
5:10 am
films from inside the hospital repeating, god have mercy on us. as he watches the attack take place. people shelter where they can despise from the explosions, burn and gunman moved between buildings. dozens of others managed to reach the back of the hospital. compound, watch towers, insecurity walls that were meant to keep them safe in size. now the biggest obstacle to escape the above. afghani was helicopters circled, flown by pilots from the previous government. when i pass the telephone's defense, tell them responded by sending these special forces to the site of the attack after the 1st explosion that created quite a large cord and around with the tech has taken places spread. it gum far has continues throughout the afternoon. so could have and there were 2 explosions and 6 attackers and all of them were killed. the security forces of the tunnel banner in the area and our special boundary unit here who are very quick in opperation. the
5:11 am
whole area is now under our control. the taliban nor houses secure the military hospital because they know its weaknesses. they attach themselves 10 years ago. i suffices also targeted the hospital in 2017. then they dressed his doctors to evade security. more than 100 people were killed and injured. i saw his challenge, the tele bonds hold on security since it came to power in august. the group is carried out 4 major bombings and killed hundreds of civilians. the worst was at cavalier port. tens of thousands of people evacuated. the last, foreign military forces withdrew. the main thing that people really much need and one from taliban was the grip over the security in the last. if they lose that grip and security increase as i think it will. somehow, a discrete tyler by the presence in the power to tell a bond,
5:12 am
his downplayed the rate of isolate, but the group is getting harder to ignore telephone casualties and mounting as i saw targets its members, particularly in eastern provinces. still in kabul taliban members respond like the previous government would have just a few months ago. the sit up a large colon to protect the public special forces and cover deployed intelligence units. gather evidence that people here are hoping for more stop to attacks altogether shall at bellis, osha, 0, call. us president joe biden, calls it again, changing commitment. the pledge by more than 80 nations to slash meta and emissions by 30 percent. by the end of the decade, the agreement was announced on day 3 of cop 26 and the 2nd, the 2 major commitments. the other one, a 100 countries, are going to reverse deforestation by the end of the decade. diplomatic, get it a james base report from glasgow. this is one of the main causes of the climate
5:13 am
crisis. humans have for centuries raised at the world's forests, which naturally protect the planet by absorbing carbon dioxide bots, an agreement a cop $26.00 if the words are matched by action could be a breakthrough. more than the 100 nations have pledged to reverse deforestation by 20347, potential to reduce, reduce carbon globally by more than one 3rd by more than one 3rd. so we need to approach this issue with the same seriousness of purpose as d carbon eyes in our economies for the other 3 important. but i me, another leader, the president of brazil, the country with half the planets tropical forests. jerbill scenario also supported the initiative in a video statement, even though act of his say, the destruction his sword during his term. in addition to the announcement on forest, another important development, a new initiative to cut methane levels,
5:14 am
again signed by over a 100 countries. by the year 2030 methane doesn't stay in the atmosphere as long as carbon dioxide, but it's 80 times more potent in warming. the earth, despite some positive developments, there is still war, is about a lack of ambition from those gathered here. frankly speaking, there is no dignity to a slow and painful death. you might, as obama island, instead of making us suffer only to witness our slow and fateful demise. leaders of the g. 20. we are drowning. and our only hope is the life ring you are holding. that theme of the western nations not doing enough was again reflected when representatives from more than 20 african countries called for more support for the continent. the un secretary general antonio good terrace, has warned. the divisions between the developed and developing world could completely de rail this spiteful summit. james bay's al jazeera glasgow last night
5:15 am
. so to come here and our desire, including early election results are coming in from the united states. a vote seems a litmus test for president joe biden, a year ahead of mid term. ah, on the melody of aleppo, syrian singer saba barclay known for his purity of voice. and marathon performances has died at the age of 80 more. that stains. ah look forward to brighter skies the winter sponsored my cattle airways. hello there, let's look to south asia and there's more wet weather on the way for southern areas of india. you can see that dense cloud cover bringing heavy rain to carola to andra pradesh, as well as tunnel now do and pooty cherry. now we've got amber alerts out here for
5:16 am
the next few days. some of those sheldon storms pushing down into shalanda. i'm pulling up into central parts of india, but as we go into thursday, the rain will ease in the very south, though karen will continue to get a drenching as will that eastern coast of india. but the further north we move, it becomes finer and dryer. lots of hazy sunshine for new deleon, there's a lot of heat building along the north, west coast and into pakistan. though the further north we go, it is getting cooler. we've got a cold snap pulling down, and that's going to affect nepal and bring the temperature down in katmai due to below average for this time of year. that was moved to east asia. it's been rather chilly in the north west of china. we've had significant snow fall and those cool conditions have pulled into beijing, but the temperature will pick up over the next few days, though the air quality will remain rather unhealthy. down in the south, we book cloud bringing showers to coastal areas as well in the east. it remains fine and dry for the korean peninsula as it does for japan. the weather
5:17 am
sponsored by katara ways of 2 years ago, the grace of the damage caused the precious gras. samantha chilling its being reversed with one of the world's biggest conservation projects. they're pretty emblematic of the patagonia and if they're plentiful and they're calm like this one is, then you know that the system is going back and that they feel no threat. and that's why you know, i, for 3 wilding passive own yeah. on al jazeera. ah oh
5:18 am
well good luck, a quick reminder, our top stories here, this, our ethiopians, government is declared a nationwide state of emergency as to grind rebels advanced further south. the u. s . is calling for an end to the conflict and has suspended ethiopia, the key trade program. i so says it was behind the killing of 900 people in an attack on cobbles, largest military hospital among those killed was the commander of the taliban. special forces was also in charge of cobbled security and more than a 100 nations of pledge to reverse deforestation within the next decade. that with you any plan that summit in glasgow agreed to cut levels of meat and emissions by 30 percent. yes, president joe biden says a program to vaccinate children will be fully up and running. next week. the food and drug administration had already said 5, a shot was safer children, age 5 to 11, a smaller dose was recommended. now, officials at the cdc have given a green light fritz bed minister to 28000000 young souls will alley thought thomas jackson ologist,
5:19 am
an adjunct professor at michigan university joins us via skype from ann arbor in michigan. allie, always good to see you here. so the cdc is given the green light for 5 to 11 year olds to get the pfizer vaccine. how significant is there, sir, and does it come as good news? thank you for the invite. it's most bonds actually achievement that we are getting to the point where we are immunizing, the little sudden that's probably measures going back to normal life and especially schools and elementary schools and middle schools. so it's really good at the treatment and it's a, it's a minus for everybody. an alley, the cdc says cobra 1900 vaccines will continue to undergo intensive safety monitoring. but what sort of safe dosage is recommended for young children presumably, if not the same as other vaccines? yeah, exactly. i think that's fine to get a job by cutting down in the,
5:20 am
in the dose. it's that those that, that has been shown. and those little kids, 5 to 11, was one 3rd of the those given to the sort of the young adults on the previous explanation. so basically we're getting these receive only one 3rd of the dos and they're immune response was in fact equal in different compared to the older kids and 2 adults, which is a great big so basically when you did use the dose, the due side effects you did you have any other issues that might be with the vaccine, and i'll be doing the early phase of the pandemic. what we've told the children don't get us sick as adults, but, but cobra, 1900 cases in children can still result in hospitalizations and even dance. yeah, definitely in the beginning go was the old version of the carpet. sorry. be,
5:21 am
get. so we were thinking that they are not there to the infection, but will be coming out. the difference is specially the delta with the high efficiency infection. we seem that more and more kids are getting infected with this with this virus. and therefore we see that our kids are getting inspected complication the quinn sequence of result of the infection and d. and because those gifts is very important, bought off really looking for back than anything these gifts. and also we had quite a significant number of kids that actually lost their lives because of the infection. so therefore, we think that this is a great achievement. and this is a great of the back. just a final quick thought to millions that parents in the us are eager to vaccinate their children. but there are still a substantial number of parents won't allow their kids to get the job. is that
5:22 am
unlike the impact the take up of children's vaccines across the country just briefly? yes, for sure. and that is an issue here because we have that nice experience with the safety of the spec theme. and with the object of piling, those kids that are about wasn't ready for more to go and get the vaccine. the 2nd step on back, they are thinking about getting their kids to get the vaccine once more safety and age group, which is coming up and also one of those. okay. and of course, those are some of the year that still not back then it did themselves so they will not give it back to their kids. they are not themselves. the alley, always good to get your thoughts on the fat to them. they're from ann arbor, michigan. now, early election results are coming in from the united states
5:23 am
a year ahead of crucial mid terms. voters are choosing mares and other local officials. they're also considering referenda and some state policies, but the most closely watch the races are in virginia and new jersey to decide on who becomes the next governor. well, we have to correspondence keeping track of the elections. kristin salumi is in boston, but 1st let's go to fill a veil in washington, d. c. at filled. so the virginia race still too close to call, but it now looks like the republican glen young can is pulling slightly ahead. the absolutely what a difference a few hours makes a difference. because when the post close, the exit polls were putting terry mcauliffe, the democrat in the lead, just goes to show because you never know what's going to happen in virginia. it is a swing state. you look at the presidential elections that went for donald trump in 2016 when for joe biden, in 2020, and now it appears at the current rate trajectory that it is going for a republican governor. and this is bad news for joe biden, because this vote is seen as 2 things. first of all, it's being seen as a referendum on his presidency so far at a time when his approval ratings or not,
5:24 am
where he wants to be. secondly, it's being seen as an indicator of what we're going to say probably when it comes to the mid terms next year, because out of the last 11 governor elections in virginia, the candidate who's been, who was one that party has gone on to do very well in the midterms now, it's been a very tricky situation for glen young. can he's been at a quite a, quite a tight situation here. and this is why because he has been endorsed by donald trump. and i remember donald trump is very popular still with some branches of the g o pe. but he couldn't be seen to be too close to donald trump because he is also disliked at a number of areas. so he's had to accept that endorsement and that association, but also keep it at arm's length even when donald trump held at telethon events yesterday to try to raise awareness and funds and support for gland young kids. so he's really got to decide really, what kind of republican governor he's going to be. but of course, donald trump has taken some credit for this. he's released the statements in the last few hours, thanking the mega movement,
5:25 am
saying that it was down to them. i can move and essentially that this when has gone through. so all the things happening in the us tonight because it is an incredibly exciting night if you're into politics, new jersey, as you say, also looking for a new governor of the incumbent. phil murphy, who's at democratic, is hoping to be the 1st democratic governor to be reelected in 40 years, but that is also a very tight race. at the moment. there is just one percent between the 2 candidates. also new york has tonight had it's been given its 1st black district attorney and its 2nd black mare islands. there has been a crucial vote in minneapolis. not only are they looking for a mass, but there has been a big focus on the future of the police. remember, after the murder of george floyd though a huge cause for the police to be defended, there are being co claims that it needs to be completely revolutionized. so people are voting on this new services, new departments for okay safety, which would have effectively put the police alongside other elements. but i have now rejected that are all right. i philip alive for stay in washington dc. philip
5:26 am
santos cross over to boston and talk to kristin smith. kristin, so the vote in boston is unusual for a race point of view. what's the latest there? that's right. he had no matter which candidate winston i. boston is electing a new mare and no matter which candidate wins tonight, it will be women of color. i am not adverse. this is a city that has been getting increasingly diverse. the majority of residents here are minority. white population only makes up about 44 percent of boston. and yet, like, unlike other cities in the northeast, which had also been diversifying this city has never elected a woman or a person of color to leave the city. and that it all changed that will all change tonight. the front runner in this race isn't woman by the name of michelle. you can
5:27 am
see here a big crowd has gathered in her support. we're seeing some election results up on the screen there. and i, she has a pretty commanding lead at this point. she's the daughter of taiwanese immigrant. her opponent, however, is also a daughter of immigrants, a daughter of a to meagan, and polish emigrant who also identifies as a women of color. lisa saw the george in this raisins. oh, quite interesting. for that reason we seem to take the more aggressive stance in this race. both candidates are democrats, boston also has a long history of electing democrats. so both have talked about things like warming the police with
5:28 am
issues in the democratic party and in the democratic party between the more progressive with traditional mainstream, with regardless, no matter who wins here tonight, it will be restored. mercer boston over at jefferson law firm from boston. kristen, thank you. i. one of the arab world's most famous singers, suffolk re, died on tuesday at the age of 88. a syrian was known for performing songs and spot by arabic, poetry and his concerts that could go on for hours. natasha gonna report. assyrians 1st heard sama factories, tenor when he was a child, calling muslims to prayer at a mosque in aleppo. during his 70 year career, he revitalized classical arabic music fans adored his career. huh?
5:29 am
and his endurance, on stage. in 1968, he sank for 10 hours to a crowd in caracas, venezuela, and made it into the guinness world record. finally, once told an interviewer, he came out of the room singing his family, used to pinch him just to hear him cry because they loved that booming sound. ah, fuck remind era poets from centuries past for lyrics. the singer was patriotic and said his syrian heritage deeply influenced his music oh, factory performed across continents during his career, bringing traditional arabic music to audiences far from the middle east. hearing the news of his passing, one kuwaiti composer said the melody of aleppo and the light of music went out in
5:30 am
the levant. ah, quite top of that, you got the headlines. they are now to 0. ethiopia, government has declared a nation wide stage of emergency as to brian rebels advanced further south. u. s. is demanding an end to the conflict and has suspended the government from a key trade program. he invoice for the horn of africa is calling for a strange little side. we have consistently condemned the keep your lips expansion of the war outside to grow. and we continue to call in the t purelife to withdraw from afar. and i'm horror. that expansion of the war, however, is as predictable as it is unacceptable. given that the ethiopian government began cutting off humanitarian relief and commercial access to, to grow in june. which continues to this day despite.
