5:02 am
of the reason americans are facing high gas prices because oil producing countries and large companies have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough to meet the demand. the reserve holds a one month supply had current u. s. consumption levels. it's intended for dealing with supply disruptions caused by things like natural disasters, not for managing prices, but the white house has been under pressure to tap into reserves as gas prices continue to rise in the u. s. leading to falling approval numbers in recent months for the president. the biden administration also says for the 1st time it has coordinated similar releases from countries like china, japan, and south korea. the united kingdom says it will allow oil companies to voluntarily release their reserves to help supply. biden is also cracking down on gas
5:03 am
companies who have been enjoying lower oil prices in recent weeks, but not passing savings on 2 americans. that's why vash, the federal trade commission to consider whether potentially illegal and i competitive behavior in the oil and gas industry is causing at higher prices for consumers. the bottom ministration touts clean energy as an alternative to costly fossil fuels. but the u. s. infrastructure is nowhere near ready to achieve that goal. my effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas. all eyes will now be on opec plus countries, which include saudi arabia, other gulf nations, and russia. they must decide now how to respond to this latest move. there is a big risk for them if they get the production numbers up too high, because they're not sure what economic underline economic growth looks like. a fight for control of the global energy market could now be underway. opec plus
5:04 am
officials war if a potential response, if president biden and other world leaders tapped into their reserves. opec plus is scheduled to meet next week. kimberly, how can al jazeera, the white house inflation across the world has also been linked to supply chain disruptions and a global shortage of chips used in sectors raging from phones to cause has hit manufacturing. now south korean electronics giant, samsung has announced plans to build a semi conductor factory in the us state of texas worth $17000000000.00 construction set to begin next year with operations to start in 2024. rosalind jordan joins us live from washington, d. c. so was the, what more we learned about this? well, this is the uh, sunken facility for samsung in the austin, texas area. austin, of course, is the capital of the state of texas. and that facility that samsung has had in
5:05 am
that city has been there for about 25 years. this facility is going to be much larger. it's going to be located in a small suburb about 30 minutes away from downtown. it's going to comprise some 5000000 square meters, and it should hire between 1502000 people. once the plant is open for a business. now this is also going to bring about $6000.00 jobs in related construction and so re cost. during the construction period, but in a state of 29000000 people, that's a drop in the bucket. that said, this is the single largest of foreign investment in the state of texas as history added bank. so good on a promise that to both a state officials and federal officials have said about trying to bring manufacturing back to the united states. so from the political perspective,
5:06 am
how important is this then for the, the biden administration? well, this is really important, not just for the biden administration, but for republicans in congress and in a local governments as well. this is one of those where examples where both of parties are members come together around a common cause. and that is the cause of business and the cause of causing employment. however, it is worth pointing out that texas is what they call a right to work state. that means it's very difficult for unions to actually of form in that state. and employers do have the right to let people go from their employment. whether or not they do belong to a union. it's much easier than an in a state that has strong union protections. there's also the fact that for the 1st 10 years of this new plants existence, samsung is going to get a rebate on up to 93 percent of its property taxes. property taxes are what paying
5:07 am
for public services in the state of taxes. and so while everyone is saying this is a good thing, economically, there are going to be questions raised about whether this corporation will be paying its fair share once the of plant is up and running. rosalind, thank you. rosalind jordan, a in washington force our jury in the us state of georgia, has wrapped up his 1st day of deliberations in the trial of ahmed aubrey's death. demonstrated gathered outside the court in brunswick, calling for the 3 white men accused of chasing down and killing him to be convicted of murder. 25 year old black man was jogging through their neighbourhood when he was shot dead last year. graphic video of the incident was leaked on line of the prosecution made a final pitch for conviction before the jury began deliberating, dismissing the defendant's claims of self defense. in this case, they made for different companies including the aggravated shock than
5:08 am
they started that they do not get to claim self defense. and then of course, provocation, you can't force someone to defend themselves against you. so you get to claim self defense. this isn't the law of last. well, she returns he has more from outside the court in brunswick, georgia. i think that's one of the key. key issues now is whether the actions of these 3 men were just the perfectly reasonable actions or 2 of those who are concerned about crime in the neighborhood they would re running through. and they wanted to say, well why, why, why is this matter in our neighborhood? that have been, have been robberies over the course of several months and they chased him to see what he was doing. he didn't stop. then they cornered him. there was an altercation and he was killed and then the process. the prosecution. however, in her rebuttal, the was saying, look, you're saying that you are trying to tell us citizens arrest which is allowed under
5:09 am
the law or in the state of georgia. but if you do so, you have to seen aubrey, commit some kind of crime. and even if you were doing this in the rest, you can use excessive force that's killing him in some sort altercation out of self defense because you will fight and of him will you call them so defensive? you are the ones who instigated instigated the altercation? the prosecutor saying, you just have the unhappy about a black man running through your predominantly white neighborhood as you, especially one half if, when he wasn't a bang your orders. but why would he be your orders? who would a baby orders free men in to pick up trucks? 2 of them heavily oem do you don't actually know. and you know, companies are reasonable to a beta of a their orders, but in the end there, this is a jury of 11 white people. one black person in the deep south. and the question is whether others also thing, wo, i don't like it either with a live person runs through my neighborhood. what are they doing necessarily?

5:12 am
all people here are vaccinated. so that's a high number. and a high infection rate, it doesn't really fit some claim. it's behavior over the people here, but this is a situation that's alarming to all concerned. the german government is considering further measures. as corona, virus infections hit record highs there. some officials are calling for public spaces to be restricted to vaccinated people, or those of recently recovered from cope with 19 authorities in the french overseas territory of martinique. se, protest is open fire during a demonstration against cobra. 19 restrictions protests against the strict vaccination requirements imposed by the french government. of course civil unrest in both martinique and guadalupe french president emanuel has sent special forces to the caribbean islands to help defuse the situation. all right, still ahead on the edge. is it a? was a pod. why many in south africa's poor city of cape town. so that being pushed out

5:17 am
so it's very significant because the software was developed to target iphones and android mobile phones. so if apple can succeed and get a ban or an injunction so that the n s o software can not be used on their phones, it will effectively kill they as the market for the software. so it's a very big move by apple. one that i'm very glad to see them take, i think it's very important. oh and it's a group, it's part has broadly denied any, any wrong doing here. and they, they say that it's products have been used by governments to, to tackle terrorism and, and crime. what, what do you say to that that they are trying to hide, but they're fear mongering and they're trying to hide behind terrorists and peta files. and the fact is they aren't trotting out examples of terrorism and head of
5:18 am
files and their technology successfully defeating that. what we're seeing is governments that have use this technology to suppress human rights and civil rights and ways that are countered to democratic principles and certainly in the united states national security interests. so they are just simply trying to hide behind israeli defense licenses for the technology and also claiming that it can be used to catch bad guys while the bad guys may be in us. so. but in the meantime, while, while all of this plays out in the legal arena, what can, what can smartphone uses do to to make themselves more more cyber, secure in know, we're going to tax like this, it's getting better. ah, so amnesty international has developed a tool that they say will help to test if this technology is on your phone. and
5:19 am
apple has said that they will donate any i think, has gotten donating money like $10000000.00 plus any other proceeds they get from the lawsuit to organizations like the monks center in toronto and amnesty international. and some of these organizations that have targeted this detected this malware and, and have made a coordinated effort globally for it to be investigated. but it's very difficult if you think you have this malware on your phone, it's very difficult to detect. and you can try to use one of these tools but, but the best thing to do is throw your phone away, do not transfer anything on the phone, get a new phone and start over. good to talk to jody wispy jonas that hi salinas. thank you for your interest in this or the president of kenya and south africa. i have called for a cease fire in ethiopia. it comes as footage has emerged of thousands of federal

5:25 am
evicted from shelters to make way for new buildings. for me to miller reports. living on the sidewalk and shelters built of scrap metal and plastic sheeting, this group of homeless people in cape town have been here for 2 years now in 2019. they occupied a vacant old people's home on the site days later, city authorities evicted them and demolished the building. right in this up, up now, together with every 40 this out. so now, when they are kicking us out, they are showing that they want to keep this city white. they don't want anyone to here except right between his in his city. while the eviction has been taken to court, the lives of people here remain in limbo. this lands been sold to a developer and barbara's hoping the courts will intervene. there is definitely a prioritization of capital in our city, and the needs of the poor are not being met if they are. if housing development, software aged is usually created on far flung areas on the outskirts of our city.
