2:00 am
like shearing cow cats, it's far from resolves. can the government still deliver on the promise piece? special coverage on all 0. ah, ethiopia prime minister abbey act night says he will lead the military from the front lines. rebel advances threatened his hold on the capitol. ah, i'm having to think of this is edge, is it alive from the also coming up? get vaccinated, all risk dying from covey. germany's warning as cases surge in europe next door and austria, it's locked down once again. with the restrictions come uneven bigger emphasis on
2:01 am
the vaccination program. a us jury is asked to weigh up murder or self defense closing arguments in the trial of 3 white men with the killing of a black men in georgia. venezuela's ruling party dominates regional polls with a divided opposition taking only 3 states out of $23.00. i hello ethiopia. the prime minister says he will travel to the front line on tuesday to lead the military against rebel forces. abby and i said it was time to lead by personal example. in a statement posted on social media fighters from the northern tiguan region are pushing further south towards the capital, addis ababa thousands have been killed, and more than $2000000.00 displaced since the conflicts started a year ago. i called on all if he opens who want to be remembered in history to
2:02 am
join him in the fine he said whatever absence is created by his departure, he was sure officials in addis ababa would continue to do their jobs. in response the spokesmen for the tea gray people's liberation front tweeted ivy's mimicry of ethiopia as war time emperors had taken on an all to probable skits a frantic overturn, and that his vow to join his forces in the battle field was another sick joke. let's bring in william lars. now to talk more about this. he is a former us diplomats and a professor of political science and international affairs at the american university joined us from washington. d. c. thanks for being with us. so what message is abby sending with this and who is he sending it to? well, i think it's primary audience to those who would be willing to fight to defend the capital. and he says to stay to be p, o p. in short order, i think
2:03 am
a secondary audience is those who may be on the fence waiting to see these are the o. p. as waiting to see one side of the other prevails. i think there's multiple aspects of his message that are important. one is that i think he's portraying that, that, that the conflict is somewhere up in the grey rather than on the gates of the capital . whereas the situation really be the capital much more dire, is much more dire than that. and he's using sort of messianic languages with applied in your setup piece, you know about being a martyr and saving, being a savior of the country and this sort of thing. and that sort of dire language boats badly for the small window of opportunity that the american beliefs still think is bare for fire and, and in negotiation, we're just picking up on those diplomatic efforts. there is this a sign that they're still far apart on that front and that's why the prime minister is made this announcement. now. i think that's part of it. i don't think that's the
2:04 am
only thing prompting this action at this time, but definitely, you know, if there is no motion to start the part because of the prime minister, not wanting to concede on whatever the terms of the negotiation that have been happening are. and yes, it's very clear that he's ready to fight. he's ready to go to the front lines and fight the battle. he does have a military background. if you look at his nobel prize speech from some years ago, he used a lot of war imagery to talk about the lessons learned about the hell of war. but here we are, you know, almost full circle with the nobel peace prize winner. using the most bellicose language to try to ramp up the stakes ahead of the defense. not only a v p, o p, a, but life and death. you know, he's basically, he's willing to die for the cause, which is the type of stark language we haven't even seen from him until now. just to come this from another. another advantage point could this be seen as,
2:05 am
as an active desperation, given the continued advance of to grind forces not far from the, from the capital. now yes, but it needn't be so, i mean, this prime minister is a victim of his own choices. are all the other parties in this conflict or any conflict, but the fact that he sees it as dire and a dead end moment for his president, t for e t o p for the capital, is, is in the u. s. viewpoint. the wrong way to view it, this whole conflict started because the disagreement over how we feel should be run and what sort of autonomy that the t gray region would have. and now we are over 10000 deaths. later. 4000000 displaced a famine breaking out humanitarian catastrophe. war crimes and people are willing to fall on their swords to fight this battle to the death. and that's unfortunate the us andre jeffrey feldman, who i know well, was there by 18th to the 20th trying to broker a deal and said there were,
2:06 am
there was a possibility there. this is a political problem, not just the military problem. it grew from a political disagreement and those political problems would have to be resolved in order for there to be a she's fire and proper political negotiations. but in said, abby estimate is chosen war because you get your analysis. william lawrence, thanks for the was a pleasure. how she has become the 1st you country to re enter a full nationwide lockdown is infection search? yeah. which daily death they have tripled in recent weeks. under the restrictions, people can only leave their homes to buy groceries for doctor visits or to exercise . andrew simmons has more from the capital vienna. the lockdown is back in austria or as europe shivers of the onset of a 4th wave of cobra 90. this is salzburg, one of the worst hit places where intensive care units are filling up. last month,
2:07 am
the national daily infection rates were around $3000.00 cases per day. then now hovering between 14 and 16000 in the capital vienna christmas lights may be on, but like everywhere else, shopping has stopped for all but essential items. stalls are closed, people are allowed out for an occasional stroll in this lock down. there's plenty to see, but not to buy. the manager of this restaurant has closed down and is giving his fresh produce away to locals. he's pessimistic. i think everybody has enough of it and question as oh, why again, wasn't there enough time to prepare? we have the looked on now because obviously it's needed not far away. the christmas market usually brightened, busy at this time of year is a sullen place locked out a shuttle to last up to 20 days with review after 10. although many people fear it
2:08 am
could last a lot longer. and with the restrictions come, an even bigger emphasis on the vaccination program. only 66 percent of the population have been vaccinated, leaving one of the biggest proportions of unvaccinated people in europe. so the government will introduce compulsory vaccinations in february. it's led to resistance and protest. this woman has just had her 3rd vaccination, a booster jap. yet she says people shouldn't be forced to have vaccinations. we had a to angela who made only marketing for his career. and, but he didn't explain, and they didn't make a good, a preparation for, for to, to ensure that everyone will be vaccinated. capitals across europe are watching austria closely as they consider their own restrictions here. the daily number of deaths caused by the corona virus has tripled in recent weeks. this locked down is
2:09 am
a last resort. andrew simmons al jazeera piano. hospitals in germany are running out of intensive care unit beds. john's langler merkel says the current restrictions don't go far enough health ministers urging more citizens to get vaccinated if you had them in the thesis been to us probably by the end of this winter. pretty much everyone in germany at some time being said somewhat cynically, will have been vaccinated, recovered or died. it's true with a highly contagious delta variance. this is very, very like the bell. russian president, alexander luther shanker, says he wants to avoid confrontation with poland as thousands of refugees and migrants are stuck in limbo at the border. he's calling on the e. u to take in 2000 people, wanting the crisis could lead to war. was that vast report from the bell russian side of the border with poland after another night and the cold on an empty stomach
2:10 am
hope is slowly fading. many managed to get through this crisis, believing that germany would accept them. like what happened in 2015 when the country to get nearly 1000000 syrian refugees. but germany feels increasingly far away in the spell. russian camp just hundreds of meters away from europe. 70 are not going to take to you. are going to wait. wait, wait, wait. dozens of people in the camp, i've left a home country to find medical treatment in europe. some are physically disabled like 5 year old mom was born without last month troubleshoot mental issues. i didn't tell termini. it's saying no, i don't care. i have to give the not the, in germany maybe in another country to deal with me to give him a health. why it's, i call a g, get better fragile people used by bell,
2:11 am
russian leaders look at shanker, in a cynical power play with europe, with songs. believe them, i saw jimmy doesn't take them. what can we do? there's no way out. could i do? look them up in the images of the cam, a widely broadcast by, by lucian and russian stay tv, commenting that you're black down, people in need. a visit of the world health organization ames to counter this. i'm in touch with many, many countries. and many countries already to support, there's a lot of pressure on europe to take these 2000 to migrants and asylum seekers. will this happen? well, as i was mentioning, just know, the little was part of a larger united nation is family be going to meet with you and country team. each of them has it meant that you and your island, my mission as the reason that w, you'll is helpful. all is really ensuring that health as a human right is respected at health conditions are rapidly deteriorating and
2:12 am
increasingly people are asking to be returned home by the russian security personnel or escorting them through the back door. something we are not allowed to film. what more people returning home is result of the crisis orchestrated by lucas shanker. thousands of data lucian, people have full everything to go on this hopeless journey based on false promises . the e u has shown if and immigration phase and lucas shanker, we did a managed to force europe to open its border for many, it will be back to where they started. after spending weeks been pushed back and forth between one country to try to send them across the border and the other firmly refused and done. steadfast and al jazeera at ballard, ocean border are still head on al jazeera u. s. president joe biden ops for continuity. his pick to had the federal reserve, chillies, presidential election heads into a run off. we'll look at who's facing off for the top job.
2:13 am
ah, it's time for another wave of cold. we've had one that miss lee, this is it you like on his way through significant thunderstorms are going with it . there will be a repeat example and it's not this, it's, this went out in the eastern pacific an immediate future. it brings a bit of rain and snow to british columbia. that brings it turns imagine states of the u. s. the lake effects and i would disappear from the eastern seaboard on the great lakes. and they have just left with cold as well as not significantly called out syllabus freezing in winnipeg is but 19 in houston that probably does feel cold . then we'll get progression from the west. these snow showers indicate dropping temperature. quite cold knollys with plain states heading down towards texas. that's the front edge of it, indicated by the blue. that's wednesday. this is thursday, thanksgiving day,
2:14 am
big drop in temperature of a most cities. so it's got to be a cold one for those, celebrating and the front edge of it, significant thunderstorms. this is thursday through texas, running out toward the ohio valley, the worst where they're most likely down in texas. and it's not cold. air floods are even ahead of it. you've got likely showers in cancun and elsewhere in mexico. they could be quite perky about how we get to wednesday east of that. but if you shout in bahamas in cuba, they tend to be drawing up. so it's a dryer looking picture. ah, it was is i was a little boy in india. my dream was to make body would fence. so finally i was going to do it one man's quest to realize a lifelong ambition. the story i chose was my own village, and it does permission going behind the lens as got him saying,

2:17 am
you can be held liable and that's where the prosecution is going for. the, the, the, the prosecutor also saying, look, you festival aubrey was unarmed. he was running away. you can't claim self defense . if you are the one who actually instigated the altercation, you never mentioned anything about a sentence arrest to, to the police, and so on. and on guys and the sort of the prosecution really relying on on the law and the admissibility of the law, not on on race, which maybe maybe wise, given us a jury of 11 white people and one black person. if these men are acquitted, clearly it will seem like, well, there are 22 types of justice in america, which i think most people certainly who are looking for a successful prosecution already. already believe i'm in the argument is always with written the house with these 2 men, just reverse the races, right? magine, if it was, if written houses black, imagine of these men were black and it was, we should remember even in this case, in a reason, this is a trial right now is, i mean the police didn't even follow up on the killing of all, but operate until some footage appeared on facebook 2 months later,
2:18 am
and then they were pushed into into, into, into investigation because 3, what 3 white men being involved, the killing of a black band. they said that he was a robot. well, let your go must must be the case. so, i mean, clearly this will just be confirmation. that justice isn't fair, but the prosecution that seems, made a very good legal case against these men. a police in the us city of walker show in wisconsin, have arrested a man who drove a car into a christmas parade on sunday, killing at least 5 people. 39 year old dow brooks will be charged with intentional homicide will be 40 people were injured in the, in some manner that many of them seriously at least say it was not a terror attack. and the suspect was fleeing the scene of another incidence, a j grey has more from the scene. what police are saying at this point and their investigation is ongoing, or saying that the suspect left what was stabbing a domestic abuse situation before running his su,
2:19 am
be through the crowd that had gathered here injuring dozens and at least 5 perishing as a result of what happened, you can see it marked out on the street here and the sidewalks from investigators the downtown area open. but these marked areas are where there were incidents or injuries. and, and that's going to be a reminder for quite some time for a lot of people in this area, a small town that's very tight knit and now struggling with what happened here. a us president joe biden has nominated jerome pow as chair of the federal reserve for a 2nd term, but spoke positively. a power actions during the global pandemic. but the move is not without prominent critics who disagree with his views on monetary policy. white house correspondent, kimberly how could reports ending months? speculation us president joe biden and now just pick for federal reserve chair. i'm nominating jerome paul for 2nd term. his chair, the federal reserve power, served
2:20 am
a 1st term during one of the worst economic downturns in recent us history. that's why biden believes he's the right choice. again, our country was hemorrhaging jobs last year and there was panic in our financial markers. j steady and decisive leadership helped to stabilize markets and put our economy on track to a robust recovery. powell faces a storm of challenges. rapid us inflation with price spikes for every day, goods like gasoline and food, and supply chain shortages that have left retailers struggling to keep shelves stocked. the central bank must decide how to keep prices stable. it will use our tools both to support the economy and strong labor market and to prevent higher inflation from becoming entrenched. analysts say raising interest rates is one possibility. what is not clear, he should do that. because yes,

2:22 am
the salumi has more from new york on how the market's reacted to the news markets initially responded quite favorably to the news of jerome power nomination. the dow jones industrial average did close higher and bank stocks in particular did quite well closing up more than 2 percent. and that's because investors know jerome powell, he served under democratic and republican administrations, he seen as a steady hand in shaky economic times. it was under powell that the fed decided to cut interest rates to nearly 0 in march of 2020 and start an aggressive bond buying program to stabilize the economy during the pandemic. and under how we watch the markets have done quite well with 2018, rising nearly 70 percent. but now of course, inflation is a big concern with supply chain issues resulting from the pandemic and prices
2:23 am
storing the feds last meeting indicated their plans for moving forward to ease up on that bond buying and gradually begin interest raising interest rates . now, some in the democratic party would have liked to have seen a more aggressive fed share, someone who would take on climate change in more regulations and so on. but for investors, they don't like surprises. and jerome powell with jerome, how they know what they're getting. venezuela's ruling socialist party has claimed victory in regional elections. president nicolas medulla party winning 20 of the 23 state governorships, turn out was just over 40 percent. one of the lowest in the country's history opposition. biggest say the result is a blow to their 1st campaign after a 4 year boy called that i saw bo has more from caracas. it's a major setback at the interesting to know that the opposition has gone through the
2:24 am
elections in the past, but in a way the they decided to participate in the elections because they're frustrated by the failure of us sanctions, who we moved nicola from office. they were also involved and by the presence of, of, of servers from the european union in the country. they have been to go to several parts on the country. people talk tobar. so they were expecting that control on the ground would help them achieve their object. however, think they slammed, there were the biggest problems, the opposition phase here is that around 60 percent of the population did not know that we're also 5000000 people that could have voted for them that have left the country. but also the big divisions that exist within the opposition among them is they're all proficient leader, one, why don't we challenging the going to constantly he was reluctant to participate in the election. what other members, 150 to participate in the election then what we saw and that we saw that this division in many local parts of the country where there were 2 candidates from the
2:25 am
opposition ended up hurting their chances of winning those municipalities. those states, among other things, when you see the national results, you see that the opposition in total had at least 9 points ahead of the ruling socialist party. and that those divisions is what complicated their chances of winning in many parts across any way or chile is headed for a presidential election run off in december. the 1st round of voting left julians facing a choice between 2 polar opposites or latin america. salisia newman reports from santiago the results of sunday's 1st round presidential elections will force chileans to choose between 2 radically different visions for the future in less than a month. one that promises a new economic, political, and social model, and another that bows a return to stability, family, values, law and order. both candidates are practically tied conservative,

2:27 am
as address income inequality. and it can, you get a dollar, we must go to every corner where our message has not been heard to the regions where we haven't been able to deliver our proposals for the common moderation that's needed in place. if dyslexia must see if the equal any saga, this is the most uncertain and polarized election and cheerless is 1970. we don't know who the next president will be, and that alone is a novelty here in chiller. the one who got most votes in the 1st round, always one in the 2nd. but we can't say that this time either is an audio central lift candidate, michael and rick is when the nanny who did not make it to the run off, says the millions of chileans who marched for more social justice, 2 years ago, had not signed up for the violence that has often accompanied protests, elaine noticed from van own it became a debate between distribution of income and order. and so far it seems that old is winning because a large part of the country understands that order is more important to social justice than social justice is for order. as is usually the case,
