a public policy analyst. these as it's unclear how warnings of interruption could have been missed, marrow mountain is located in one of the most eventually related area at it's been it's always a closely monitored by our look on all of this. and they know that every time we have a big rainy season, some sort of what they sometimes they go to country or option heflin. so they should have been able to get warning or people that from the interview going to many. okay. so why would they seem to be caught by sort of rice? so this is still a question that has to be answered. why what, why to bryce? what went wrong if somebody sleeping on the job or our way of communicating that they get it is not so be here. or maybe when, because some people waiting area they should be because as you know,

and then dispersing very quickly before the security services get there. no, it's not clear at this stage where the security services knew they were planning this. it's act of disobedience, but clearly they were there. they were on the scene. they reacted very quickly. but i think it just does show at this stage how those protest is even by doing something very quickly, are taking their lives very much in their hands. and it shows how much the security services really have very little disregard for preserving human life. it's not the easiest place to get information out of tony. do we know what kind of impact, what kind of a toll these protests are having on the regime? what we are getting 32 reports of casualties. there are organizations within me and mark and internationally who are observing everything that's going on. and the toes reported to be know well over 1300 people in acts of civil disobedience

12:19 pm
been hard to hit by the rise in covert 19 infections between 70 and 80 percent of new infections across south africa in this province alone. and that is why authorities are saying that people need to get out and get vaccinated. there has been some level of vaccine hesitancy, about 42 percent of people who are eligible for a vaccine have actually taken that up. but that number drops to about 56 percent for people who have taken up 2 doses, who are fully vaccinated. that government has fits up a number of drives, door to door awareness campaigns, trying to create awareness around why the vaccine is important, especially because so little is known around the army con variant. and the greatest concern there is just how easily it spreads. and that is being reflected in the spike in numbers that south africa is experiencing. one area of concern, while hospitalizations of people has remained relatively low,
12:20 pm
a number of young children under the age of 5 are having to be admitted to hospital . now becoming ill after contracting cove at 19 this week routine a number of students 12 to 17. since it was open to that age group a month or so ago, that has come in now for, for the vaccinations coming in with the parents coming in as families. so there has been that we have seen an optical, a number of infected, a kids at the surrounding schools over years where i think parents are exercising portia a week ago this vaccination center had about 50 or 60 people coming through every day. and now that number has doubled, so that is encouraging for people trying to make sure that south africans are getting vaccinated. but we've also been to several vaccination centers in this province, some entirely empty, some with people trickling through and others more busy. so there's still an issue around vaccine hesitancy, but certainly a significant proportion of the sub african population has been spooked by this new

army kron variant. and more people are coming out to get a job. the mayor of rio de janeiro is cancelled new year's eve celebrations. after brazil confirmed its 1st cases of the army con variant, thousands of residents and tourists usually flocked to the cities famous krakow, on a beach to watch the fireworks on december 31st. more than 615000 people have died in brazil from covered 90 asylum seekers from cuba, joining others from africa and asia trying to enter the ear through greece. but they shot out of established procedures and processes, leaving them desperate for food and shelter. john thoughtless reports from athens. one spends his days on his phone, contacting other asylum seekers from his native cuba, a sally thermometer, and i thought of making a list to see how many cubans there are and give this to which our organization we could. there are lawyers, doctors, civil engineers close on. we're not brigands. we want to the country though,
12:22 pm
all embrace us to see that we can offer things to society. we're not here to extract wealth and go home. let's be part of society and contribute. can says he became aware of the plight of other cubans when he was arrested while trying to catch a plane to italy. the walls of his cell were covered in graffiti opposing the communist regime and havana. cubans had been arriving in greece since food shortages led to unrest and a violent crack down in havana last july. the u. s. border is close to them, so they fly to russia visa, free than to serbia and walk to greece. many pay about $9.00 a night for a bed and a flat, but with their money running out, they sometimes find themselves on the street horns. friend carlos managed to find a week of work in construction toward our hon. i have 11 euros on me. that's all that's left from the week i worked. there are 9 children, one and i pulled our money and bought milk and other groceries for them. we are part of a group where everyone helps each other than to night. i don't know where i will
12:23 pm
stay. i will make some calls if i can't find a place, i'll make a plan. but there are others who are worse off. carlos, spend all the money he brought from cuba, buying several tickets to fly from greece to germany or spain. police foiled all his attempts to get their cubans could apply for asylum that would entitle them to run subsidy and monthly cash allowance. but they would have to have registered at a reception center like those found on the easter g and islands. the usual and free route for refugees. there was no such center on the north macedonian border where they entered greece. so their only option now is to apply online. even that is difficult, says basil is papadopoulos who runs a legal aid charity for refugees. the not even simply the, not even the spanish interpreters because this is a new, a new, the future waverly too late. now what is going gone is that the authorities
12:24 pm
do not register them as, as alan, she chose and the force of the military to leave either back to their own country to coma or to find their own way. let's say elsewhere. these refugees have another option. they can formally apply for asylum before being deported, but then they'd risk being imprisoned back home. we asked carlos how he felt about that, but i think i thought brussel, i'd rather spend my life in jail here, dead return to cuba. jumpstart, hopeless al jazeera athens, israeli forces of shot and killed a palestinian man who police say, stab than israeli civilian. it happened just outside damascus gate and occupy the east jerusalem on saturday. video appears to show his ray police pointing their guns at paramedics, preventing them from treating the palestinian israeli stabbing victim was treated and is now in hospital. farmers in west, in afghanistan have just finished harvesting flowers that produce sac from. it's

12:26 pm
government method can make on on problems of the banking system. are a big issue for businesses, but i think we face list bureaucratic interference and the long term i'm optimistic about the future. extracting the precious filaments from the flowers, processing the individual threads to remove impurities, then sorting them into different grades requires painstaking attention. it's a role traditionally carried out by women. while men do the work in the fields, despite concerns they, taliban might try to stop women from working produce as we spoke to say there's been no problems so far. and that's good for the wider social significance of this spice, or in the last couple of decades, it's been promoted as an alternative to growing poppies for the opium trade. a trend helped by saffron's rising international price. and of course,
12:27 pm
there would be some interest from the other problem anyway, they see that the price is really high. of course, there is a debt bring also the law under the contribution of the flooring, the thought from as a lucrative alternative to puppy production. saffron cultivation was encouraged across afghan is done by the previous administration. it stands as one of its more successful legacies. but the vast majority of the country, saffron and the best quality spice still originates from the fields of had its been recognized by international awards. as among the best in the world and more of the staff because i export to more than 27 countries. and i know that suffering can change the economic face of i'm going to stop and i know the soil and other provinces will also produce a front placing such trust in the powers of one tiny flower may be hoping for too much. but this is a country in need of any little help right now. rob mcbride,

bag unless it is ready. this is one of the initiatives this year to revive the economy christmas market where people can sell their products as well as their crafts people. here in bethlehem have depended on tourism for decades. so naturally when tourism stopped, the economy took a hard hit. now, you know, christmas people are looking to buy presents and the things are turning around, at least for the holidays. people are willing to spend more to try and bring some bright brightness and hope into the house and have like a happy holiday. so i think during this time people will spend, even if you know it's a bit difficult for them, palestinians do not control their own borders. so they have to rely on what restrictions israel has in place. november. israel has allowed vaccinated tourists to come in and so people here were hopeful that tourism is going to be back. but soon after news of the new barian has emerged, israel has shut down its borders again. people here are saying that while they're
