3:06 am
this is seen as a very beginning of what could be really the newly appointed team from iran and from the new government of bringing racy is headed by the reigning deputy foreign minister, alibaba murray. and his team of 38 men who are very well versed in the countries economy. they're all specialties at their specialists in iran's economy, from various different divisions of the government. they are here to find out what the other side will likely do in terms of moving forward. they're trying to gauge the mood from the europeans as well as the americans. i've spoken to sources into iran who are looking at the other parties involved to say that they are seeing some members in the negotiating teams from all sides. that are very well versed in terms of the security of the countries. meaning that they are expecting iran and other programs, not just a nuclear program will also be brought up. that is of course,
3:07 am
something the renew of said they will not do. and they said they were only here to discuss how the americans will lift their sanctions. that they've impose on her, on the deputy foreign minister has said they are on nuclear program and other programs as well as iran regional involvement is not for negotiations. but to, of course, the parties involved, including europeans, have said that these talks are not going to go on forever, that there needs to be some kind of resolution as soon as possible. opening statements have begun in the trial of british social like g lane, maxwell. she's accused of enabling the crimes of late sexes than the jeffrey epstein who took his own life 2 years ago, while awaiting trauma. maxwell is pleaded not guilty to the charges. gabrielle is on the reports from new york. jeffrey epstein and glen maxwell met a young girl in a park bench, befriended her, and then later sexually abused her to protect her identity. prosecutors called her jane. she was 14 years old and the abuse went on for years and occurred and several
3:08 am
of epstein homes in florida, new mexico and new york. that was just one of the accusations that prosecutor made an opening statement of maxwell's trial. the accused maxwell of, in their words serving up young women for epstein abuse. she put them at ease and made them feel safe. also they could be sexually abused by a middle aged man, prosecutor said, and also called maxwell, a predator who prayed on vulnerable young girls and manipulated them. but epstein committed suicide. so he isn't on trial. maxwell is an adult, say prosecutors over the next few weeks, will need to show how she recruited, groomed, and participated in the abuse of the girls. we are not in the court room this week, determining whether or not the victims were victims of sex crimes at the hands of mr. epstein. that's not what this trial is about. this
3:09 am
trial is about mid maxwell, a legit activity to enable mister epstein to abuse these little kids for women are expected to testify that they were recruited and groomed by maxwell for abuse, including jane. that 14 year old, the prosecutors say was one of the victims. jane is now an adult, and she plans to tell the jury everything she says happened to her. in their opening statements, maxwell's defense lawyer told the 12 person jury she is being used as a scapegoat for epstein alleged crimes. she is filling the hole and filling an empty chair. she is a convenient stand in for the man who cannot be here. monday was a day for the lawyers on both sides to lay out their case. now it was to witnesses a trial that likely won't conclude until at least january. gabriel is hondo which is either york or the caribbean island nation of barbados will become
3:10 am
a republic on tuesday when it comes time with the british monarchy. barbados gained independence from britain in 1966, but retained queen elizabeth as its head of state. a monarch would be replaced by barbarian president elect sondra mason. got alive now to the capital bridge town, where our latin america edited the she newman is live for. so to see why has barbados decided to do this, ah, you know, there's a, there's not a simple answer to that, but i can tell you that the, the road to becoming a republic has been a very long one for this island nation. it started, ah, shortly after this country became independent 55 years ago, and there were people constant calls for barbados to cut its colonial ties definitively. and that would mean cutting the ties with the monarchy, which as you know, queen elizabeth is still the head of state or, of this country. at least she will be until just
3:11 am
a little under 4 hours from now and at midnight, she won't talk that the alley will not turn into a pumpkin but into a republic officially. now some people say that this was something that is going to modernize the country will bring it up to date with the 21st century that be not a constitutional monarchy makes no sense any more. others have mixed feelings. there are even emotional about the fact that they are going to lose their status as a constitutional monarchy, although this country will remain part of the british commonwealth. but as it were, they're still going to, they're still celebrating their having parties behind me. there is a steel pan, an orchestra, actually with beautiful barbados and music out to my right. they will soon be a ceremony with prince charles attending. so it is a very, very big day for this island nation. one that many say they've been waiting for for decades. barbados, known as little england, is the most eastern li,
3:12 am
caribbean island. it was a slave colony known for its vast sugar fields and gained independence only 55 years ago. but we barbados has been one of the cleans 16 realms countries where she is head of state. and there were demonstrations, but they were of enthusiasm and loyalty. but for many, it was time to cut the umbilical cord with the monarchy by declaring barbados, a republic. wayne evasion as by bay dns called themselves cells, tiny salty fruit, the grows by the seaside, a specialty here. he agrees with the change, i feel to be a positive, but one of us is able to run the quote for, you know, it was a bit from decisions did read of any benefit going to be on our own yontsa. so yeah, i guess guess. okay. but others, like 19 year old could shawna says that the decision to break with the monarchy was imposed on them by the prime minister without consultation. it wasn't even at say
3:13 am
that one day as you see if the properly and now was it. it is, in fact, more symbolic than anything else. a new president will have a largely ceremonial role, and barbados will remain a part of the british commonwealth under its current prime minister. prince charles's hears guest of honor. it's not his 1st trip to barbados, but as representative of the monarchy it will be his last, this former quaker plantation has been the residence of the governor general, the queen's representative in barbados for the last 55 years. now it will be the residence of this country's new president, making barbados the was youngest republic, at least for now. in fact, other former caribbean colonies of the british monarchy such as grenada and jamaica, may just decide that they want to be next. well, this is the 1st time i've ever been to barbados, and i can tell you that one of the things that has struck me the most is just how
3:14 am
proud barb aiden's obey jeans as they call themselves are of their country. that it's whether they agree or not, with the decision to become a republic, they really do identify as bay gents and they, they have a saying when we are expecting perhaps for the prime minister to repeat that when the official ceremony takes place at midnight. the local time, and that is friends to all satellites of none. and that is something that they've been repeating for years and most likely will say that again, as they finally break their last official ties with the monarchy or i, lucy newman. life was there in, in barbados, still head to on edge. is it a watch which is c, e. o. quit and handed power to the social networking slides? technology g. george's former president place is caught off the years in exile as 100 processes show this.
3:15 am

3:16 am
eastern part of java. lot of rain as of late the other side of the island will power up some thunderstorms for jakarta. with a high of 2070 grees, a solid band of rain running right across the korean peninsula slamming into southern japan, q shoe, southern honshu into chicago. when you see a lot of rain as a result of this, and in behind that system, we'll see that cooler air infiltrate. so sol goes from 10 degrees down to to same goes for a cargo. sheila, just a high of 2 degrees bundle up. that's it. see sir, ah, the weather sponsored by katara always. in the light of the open seas hides the dark secret men forced to work without paying inflate for years. but a glimmer of hope remained for the forgotten fisherman. as a group of activists delve deep into the illegal fishing industry,
3:17 am
demanding justice and freedom. ghosts fleet, a witness documentary on al jazeera. ah ah. but again, you're watching, i just need a reminder while top stories this out, the world health organization is warning. the newest co, with 19 variants on the kron poses of very high risk of a surgeon infections. i'm supposed to take it in southern africa last week. iran says it is optimistic after the 1st day of talks in vienna aimed at salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal. representatives from russia, china, germany, france, and the u. k. met with iranian officials, the u. s. is there,
3:18 am
but only holding talks in directing. the trial of british socialize, he lane maxwell has begun in new york. 15 year old is accused of enabling the crimes of convicted pete of foul jeffrey epstein. she denies the charges i. u. s. president joe biden has held talks with ceos of several major retailers to talk about how best to tackle the nation's supply chain problems. the federal reserve chairman has warned be on the crown variance of coven 19 could slow the recovery of the u. s. economy and add to inflation wars. let's talk more about this with him. we. he is the associate director and member of the economics research group at moody's analytics. he joins us from west chester, pennsylvania in use in the us. thanks very much for being with us. so to what extent then? because the supply chain problems have been around for, for us, for several months now. to what extent is this new on the kron variance of cove it
3:19 am
going to potentially add to that? thanks for having me. it's certainly a significant risk factor we've seen from previous waves of the delta area and that, you know, port closures, as well as a factory closure. can have a significant impact on, on the supply chain issues that we're seeing today. in particular, i think, you know, said there be a port closures in china as well as other manufacturing hubs all around the world due to spike's because of the, the crime virus. you know, that would certainly pose a challenge in terms of getting containers in and out of ports. and secondly, i think with, with factory closure is to be seen how detrimental they can be to, you know, things like auto production. for instance, the recent delta spikes taffy's asia is a testament to that. so to the extent that the, the army crime very and produces similar spikes in different countries around the
3:20 am
world. it was certainly worse and the disruption is not working right now. was pointing out there, this is this, these global supply chain disruptions. it's a global phenomenon, isn't it? so how does, what can the us to really do from its end that i mean, to what extent can they, can they try to resolve these issues? yeah, it's a great point. i think what the president has done has really i think produced tangible results domestically that i agree with you 100 percent that i think there needs to be more international coordination. the difficulty live in the fact that the supply chains have multiple leaks and what the president has done very well over the past couple months is really to try to unlock some of the bottlenecks along these different links within the supply chain domestically. he started with, you know, operating the flex, 247 in long beach and, and l a in california. and he worked with these union workers as well as union
3:21 am
pacific, which is a railway operator to make sure that there would be a handover, right of goods from the ports over to, to the railway stations onto the warehouses and so forth. and today's meeting with, with a ceo is, is further customer to that. and, and while my ceo has, has, in fact, said that, you know, throughput has increased by, by over 25 percent nationally following these efforts. the difficulty is that there is differences in the way that countries have handled cove. it in particular there are countries up until recently a few different countries that had called a 0 policy. which means that the moment that there is sort of cases being detected, that there would be a lot of a city locked out of a port. and that is very different from, from a lot of the countries out here in the west. so. so if you continue to have this
3:22 am
sort of these, these differences and policies, you know, the, the global nature of the supply chain is going to exacerbate any, any issues within each of these links. good to talk to you tim way. thanks so much for your analysis. i thank you for having our position. supporters have rallied outside kingston's election commission, claiming irregularities and sundays parliamentary poll. they're demanding a new vote. zane bas robbie has more from the capital. bish kick curtis don's parliamentary election report card international observer say the country has potential but needs improvement. assessment is that yesterday's parliamentary elections were competitive. fundamental freedoms were generally respected during the campaign and the thought to displace the political will to ensure clean elections. however, strict enforcement of subsequent measures their 2 candidates campaigning with

3:24 am
far from conceding, those who last are planting the seeds of distrust and both automated and manual vote counting. the rally here today was peaceful, small and short, but it's only the 1st day after elections. and if these rallies continue, if they get bigger, if they spread, that could become a problem that could take her guest on down a familiar path. political dialogue in this country can unravel quickly and spill out into the streets. but heated debate of vocal opposition protesters raising flags instead of fists all still so far hallmarks of democracy. then basra b o. d 0 bas kit, a ga, the former president has appeared in court on charges of abuse of office because the hush really has been held in jail since returning from exile last month. he faces 6 years in prison, but says the charges are politically motivated. robin forest walker reports from the capital tbilisi. this was because 2nd believe,
