1:06 am
genomics and south africa has been outstanding throughout this whole pandemic period. and that's why we've been able to identify when changes occur. the fact that we are able to identify changes quickly is good news is good news for the world. but we must be careful that we don't then jumped the conclusion of, well, that equals, it came from here. it came from there. and it means it's this, or that we need to understand much more about this. so far, dozens of infections have been identified in south africa. while in botswana, the government says the new virus was found in several foreign nationals on a diplomatic visit. while this african government says it respects the decision taken by the u. k. and other countries to limit travel to and from the region. and that precautionary measures may be necessary. it says the decision is rushed. so we know that promise interventions were brought to soon we did to

1:11 am
well in the hours of to 27 people died trying to cross to see between france and the u. k. the leaders of both nations promised a new resolve to prevent more death. but barely a day later, a political route over a letter sent by the british prime minister has led franz to freeze its neighbour out of an emergency summit. this weekend. the number of refugees and migrants entering europe is, for instance, the height of the war in syria, with a sharp decline during the corona virus pandemic. so far this year there is a slight trend upwards compared to the past 2 years. most of those people have applied for asylum in germany, france, spain, and greece leaving the u. k. only 5th on the list. you have to be on u. k. soil in order to claim asylum. and in the year to september, around $45000.00 people made the journey that's about 11 percent on the previous year. but the big changes in the way people try to get that. most people used to
1:12 am
hide on the back of laurie's, but from 2018 to 20. 20 number of people crossing on small boats and dingey went up 30 fold to more than 8000. and this year the increases grown to more than $25.00 and a half 1000 people. events this week have shown ill prepared to put their lives at risk. 194 people of died crossing a straight since 2014. before this. the rate was $166.00 pull. brian reports from dover on england, south coast. seeing these migrant boats close here endeavor, hava. it is easy to see just how inevitable wednesday's loss of life was. the $6.00 to $8.00 meet the inflatable simply on designs to cross the treacherous waters of the english channel. but what was left foreseeable was how the initial political consensus that there needs to be closer cooperation between france and england to
1:13 am
prevent these crossings happening has fallen apart in the space of just 3 days. britain's proposals included, for example, putting british police and potentially army on french beaches to help the french patrol that stretch of coastline. but the french had been resisting beth for the previous 2 days. so when bonus johnson formerly requested joint patrols, the reaction from the french was exasperation. gdcp was good. i spoke 2 days ago with prime minister barak johnson in a serious manner. but on my end, i seek to continue doing as i do with any country in any head of states. i am surprised by methods and they are not serious ones. if you don't communicate from a leader to another, and these matters via tweets and letters, you are making public. we are not whistleblowers kamani. and some boots on breeches appears to be one of the biggest bands of contention between the british and the french. specifically, britain's ongoing pressure for the french to allow joint patrols along the french beaches in order to prevent the boats putting to see in the 1st place. but the
1:14 am
french of long resisted that idea, saying that the length of the coastline means that that's simply not practical, as well as the issue of sovereignty. so embarrassed, johnson included the beach for charl idea and a formal letter to president micron. and then similar tennis li tweeted, the less it's a social media. it had the impression of trying to bounce the french president's into agreeing with the british perspective. what he did was sent out of 5 very good, clear. if you take time to read the less you'll see this idea is makes it very, very clear that we want to work and cooperation hand and glove with the friends. i can't think of another way lower than to talk about it and to put additional measures in place. so close and yet, so far as things stand breton will be excluded from sundays meeting over the in kelly with the rest of the channel nations. there will be no new cooperation despite the appeals earlier in the week from president micron, a prime minister johnson, and nothing new to stop refugees and micro attempting to make the treacherous
1:15 am
crossing. these 2 countries, so close geographically, remained so very far apart on this thorny issue pull brennan al jazeera dover. much more. so to bring you on the program, ukraine's president sang russians were involved in a plot. and als, tin is his name, is troops mass in a border and ancient egypt for stored after 3000 years me thinks is, is anal in luck, song. ah, hello. we have still got somewhere, whether it's eastern parts of australia, things drawing up behind over central and west and past. we've got this weather system just around the top and it was at east side of the country, not a little area of low pressure. they're just pulling away slowly but surely across

1:18 am
a great look at the headlines this hour now in the u. s. is joined the number of countries and bonding travel from southern africa, where a new very into the corona virus has been detected. world health organization is designated a variant of concern. and then the french president, emanuel micron is canceled invitation for the british. i'm secretary to a meeting on the micro prices. is raleigh you case? it gets serious. so remain locked out of discussions. well now to ethiopia, the prime minister there is visited troops battling fighters of the tag ry people's liberation fronting the countries north. he told reports, as the armies morale is high, the rebels and their allies have been pushed back. their advance is spot fear the group could potentially reach c capital addis ababa? the u. s. embassy is tweeted, durgin, us citizens, to leave the country. now, brianca go to reports. the front line is not an unfamiliar terrain for it. he appears prime minister. by this time, i'll be amad who also holds the rank of lieutenant colonel,
1:19 am
has returned to the battle field to rally his troops for what he calls. an existential war. video released by the government shows abi, with soldiers, who are fighting against tiguan rebels in the, off our region. where the, the way without to what you see behind me is a mountain area that was a strong hold for the enemy until yesterday. now we've managed to clear the area fully. the morale of the defense forces is really great. the war is being undertaken with great fate. now we've taken cast the gator. today we will take over schieffer and burkle. we will continue until a theory appears. freedom is insured to pay more noise. since july, the rebels have been expanding the battle from inside t cry into neighboring amera and off our regions. they have ceased towns that are a few 100 kilometers from the capital, addis ababa. they say, the prime minister has lost his chance at peace,
1:20 am
much using war. the measures taken by our b of med desperate. it would have been better for him to suggest solutions for peace and negotiations. yet he chose war. he should have upheld the opportunity for peace. canada has now joined a growing list of countries who are asking the citizens to leave. and with the fears that the battle could move towards the capital and that the fighting could get a lot worse. prime minister abbey asked meds, decision to move to a front line, apparently in the region where fighting is not actually so serious at the moment. is apparently intended to galvanize his support base and mobilized new recruits for the armed forces. and that's not likely to be effective. i think many people may respond to the call, but this war is being fought with heavy weapons and and in some cases, well trained battle hardened troops. so volunteers at this late stage,
1:21 am
little training and few weapons and i'm going to make a difference. the civilians are already paying the price of a few appeals here alone conflict. more than 9000000 people are facing hunger. hundreds of thousands on the brink of famine. but so far, both sides have refused to buy down. why what the un colds? the textbook definition of a humanitarian crisis, continues to unfold. brianca, to 0 or the flow of migrants in refugees is causing concern on another of the eas borders. this time between poland and beller roost, whose president, alexander lucas shank, has visited a crowded border camp. he met some of the thousands of people at a makeshift shelter and told them they were free to head west or to go home. the european union is accused bearers of engineering this crisis by distributing visas in the middle east and then flying people in to push them towards the board out with poland. a go. shank, as, as bowers will help people to return to their home countries,
1:22 am
though they won't be forced to do this. just what they're all done. yes, i'm looking ahead and if the margaret crisis and bill ruth is not sold, no, you will grow much bigger. what not only in spring, but next winter, we understand that a large flow of people will be arriving and bill ruse, and it will be hard to hold them on the border. it was, the problem must be solved now before it grows much bigger like your on all the stories of falling security services in care gustavo, that a fall than attempted coup just out of sundays, parliamentary elections, at least 15 people have been detained, including politicians and former officials are accused of trying to stage a violent protest against the result present side their jumper off is expected to maintain his grip on power. critics accuse him of suppressing descent by arresting potential rivals. 52 people have died in a mining accident in russia's siberia region. this is the worst incident in the
