with no host and no limitation. what matter do you know was to be radically how come a thing that's radical for say, part one, i way way and denise the pool. it's not about wanting to sell a lot of the message in the studio b unscripted on al jazeera. ah, china denounces the u. s. diplomatic boy, cause of next he has beijing winter olympics, calling it a pretentious act. ah . hello there, i'm this dante, this is al jazeera live from doha, also coming home tension in the gambia capital as an opposition candidate refuses to concede, defeat in saturday's presidential election. and when we wanted vaccines,
they just kept, you know, giving us the crumbs from the table. south africa as president hits out at governments over their failure to deliver on promises of covered 19 vaccines for africa. and the u. s. is forced to resume a controversial trump era immigration policy that makes migrant waste and mexico while the cases ahead. ah, now china is threatening firm counter measures against the u. s. after announced a diplomatic boycott of next year's winter olympics, and beijing, american government officials will not be attending the event because of what they call human rights atrocities. and genocide, china is embassy, and washington has called the decision a grave distortion of the olympic charter will have more on the reaction from beijing and just a moment. but 1st, this report from katya has her young political tensions between the us and china.
now, playing out and next year's winter olympics in beijing, u. s. presidential bite and said for weeks he was considering a diplomatic boycott of the games over china's human rights record, particularly would washington says as genocide against weaker muslims in shing young province, the biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics and paralympic games given the pierre scenes ongoing genocide and crimes against a humanity engine, john and other human rights abuses, the athletes and team usa have our full support. will be behind them 100 percent as we cheered them on from home. oh, china is accused of detaining more than a 1000000 weaker muslims, and other minorities in camps where force, labor and serialization of women are allegedly common. beijing denies this before the boycott was announced, it warn't of counter measures,
but also talked down and he likely impact from the us move scenarios who sure, you know. yeah. most politicians who clump a boycott for political self interested, or just showing off and hiking things up with nobody cares whether they come or not . and it will have no influence on beijing success in hosting the winter olympics. the boycott is moving forward despite recent effort to stabilize ties, including last month's a video meeting between biden and chinese presidents teaching pink. i think what we're seeing now is both united states and china testing the waters and going back and forth on politics and the olympics become a platform or a proxy for engaging in political verbal batteries. let's just hope it stays at verbal. we're entering a perilous moment and the olympics are sort of ante up the tension between the 2 countries in ways that are much bigger than the olympics. the u. s. also applauded the woman's tennis association for suspending all tournaments and china over concerns for the safety of chinese ton of star peng. why?
with the olympics coming to the u. s. in 2028. there are now questions about how china may respond both in the short and long term. katya low priscilla young al jazeera, while more now on the asian reaction with katrina, you who's in the chinese capital. they have been repeating the same kind of sentiments over the past few weeks when these 1st rumors came out that the u. s. was mulling over this move. china has accused washington of political grandstanding, political, political, manipulation of distorting the spirit of the games. and we've had chinese states media similarly express the same sentiment saying that this is the us trying to contain china and reflect a cold war mentality. so this will no doubt escalate tensions just weeks after president jor biden. and present, she didn't think, sat down to a video colon at the time the business community world to mystic that the
relationship was at least stabilizing. and now this is again, spiked concerns about what this might mean for the 2 countries trade between the 2 countries exchanges between the 2 countries. the aging is currently mulling over what exactly it's going to do to respond. but we're yet to hear any details about what those counter measures might look like in the lympics are supposed to be this really big positive event. it's supposed to represent a sense of unity and for china, they were really hoping that this event could really represent its own. you standing on the global stage, its own new role as the leader in the ease. so the fact that the u. s. is not attending and potentially other western countries could follow suit. other officials may not attend from countries which are allied with the u. s. that could really damage china's credibility and damage its image. well, new zealand now also says it won't be attending chinese winter olympics at a diplomatic level. it says that decision mostly has to do with carpet 19 and
travel logistics. but the deputy prime minister says there concerns about human rights still exist and have also been raised with beijing. we might vary regular statements, surround views on human rights issues with respect to charter and the prime minister's rights, those directly with prisoners g. i'm where we are already nor attending diplomatic level as it were. and so it's a hypothetical from apple's, we for now moving on, and police and the gambia have fide t, aghast to disperse supporters of a presidential candidate there who's refusing to concede defeat. the electoral commission has decayed incumbent adama barrow, the winner of saturdays, paul with 53 percent of the vote. an address has the latest mouth from banjo. this is the moment opposition support to say police choir t, i guess. as they gathered at the home of acquisition, u. d. p. eda will say to dapple the test kind of happened at dublin hall, just across the street from the united states embassy in the set of quinn bay area
. support his claim that kennedy was roped in saturday's presidential election and they won't back doubt incumbent item. a battle has again been declared president his 1st arm came after the oppressive 22. we have all a former lead, a jump mot barrel to step down. they rigged the election. the results are worse than what was announced during yard jamie's rain. even he didn't defeat the u . d. p with this margin. witnesses say this kemesha began after stone was cast at the police with and responded with g, i guess and arrest incidents like this have been reported elsewhere. witness to say clashes have happened between supporters of the governing party and the main opposition of having to do so. i'm not happy with that. that no, not wrong. i do not somebody down here. i'll provide it was the
vanity's that hitler hit on those entities. hopes of gumby as post election period would be hit free one dash by these incidents. now even the position of opposition leader, we'll say new double regarding the outcome of this election suffered a setback on monday, one of the candidates who attended a meeting in his house while the results of the elections were rejected. cold and congratulated preston, adam about selection observers from both the african union and european union, found no major problems in the electoral process. or are the candidates like hello for seller? have already conceded defeat, st. goblins have spoken. why do we get to we rewarded this, not my prerogative to inquire into the hot water is their voice. if did the wizard it is forced to accept the police of issued a statement, vowing to deal with troublemakers. i was some opposition supporter saying they
would back down. it could be a term supposed to election period for the gap. yeah. i'm a decrease al jazeera but june the gambia with to the pandemic now answered africa as president has stepped up. his fierce criticism of the way that countries have reacted to the new ami cranberry and so are on the person made those remarks during a peace and security for an senegal. saying western governments have also failed to deliver covered 19 vaccines that they promised to africa from docker and nicholas hack reports. the fight against the new omicron variant in senegal starts here at a health center in downtown to car. we're doses of the coven. 19 vaccines are available, matching with the can, the, it's not because we have a vaccine that we're america. we need to keep protective measures and protect those around us. it's not over at a to date peace and security form held into court on monday,
south africa as president cerebral posts are accused rich countries of creating health apartheid. i have personally really been disappointed in the approach that the rich countries have taken on the issue of vaccines. firstly, they hoarded vaccines, the ordered roll vaccines than the populations required. and when we wanted vaccines, they just kept, you know, giving us the crumbs from the table. and the greed that they demonstrated is something that is quite, quite disappointing. indeed, particularly when they say we are our partners. the pandemic overshadow. the 7 piece insecurity form held here which welcomed heads of state intelligence officers and military chiefs. usually discussions and the forum revolves around greater
military cooperation between western nations in african countries. but with western countries breaking their promise to supply vaccines in their unwillingness to wave patterns, to allow people here to make their own choices. eroding with some nations, looking at new partnerships, to help the fight against covey in africa, china and out. it's sending 1000000000 doses of vaccines on the fight against arm groups in this a hell region. new year's president admitted that al qaeda affiliates are in some places better equipped than the security forces of some countries in west africa following increased attacks. molly, seeking help from the russian mercenaries working for wagner, the private military company. that's way countries like miley, we have decided to go more and more for diversification of our partnerships. we can work with china, we can, will be for russia also at the form of delegates from western nations reiterated
their good will and intentions. but countries such as south african center go, see, that's not good enough. vaccines made in africa for africans is what they want. almost a quarter of a 1000000 africans are reported to have died of the virus so far. the message here is those death were preventable if only victims had access to vaccines. nicholas hawk al jazeera de carr, while meanwhile, france is closing night clubs and imposing strict social distancing rules in response to the on the con variant prime it says on cast x says that country is now in its 5th wave of this pandemic. but he believes high vaccination rates and the re introduction of some restrictions will prevent the need for more locked downs and curfews onward. young ladies, good. we see where the risk of infection is highest. it's when we're gathered in festive occasions. when we eat drink wine. when we're standing in doors in close
contact with each other, obviously without masks, it's in office leaving drinks on the seminars, end of year festive moments. it could be in the house, a big dinner among friends, a house warming. these are, my message is very clear until the end of the year, we take it easy. we pause, we protect each other, and we also save our ability to enjoy christmas. well now the mayor of new york has announced plans to make coven 19 vaccinations. mandatory that all work is in the private sector. it's the most sweeping current of ours related measure by any states or major city in the u. s. bill diblasio says children above the age of 5 will soon need to have had one dose of a vaccine to even end to restaurants will faces. cases in new york are rising and narrow concerns about the spread of the micron variant. i describe the actions we're taking today as a preemptive strike. get ahead of this problem before it deepens and used the thing that works. vaccination, we can talk about all the other tools and we will. but vaccination is the central
weapon in this war against coven. it's a one thing that has worked every single time across the board on a strategic level. it's the reason new york city is back in so many ways. as the reason we can avoid or shut down some restrictions. i mean, while a growing number of school students in south korea had tested positive the kinds of 19, since they went back to class late last month, nearly 1500 students tested positive in soul alone last week. that's more than a 30 percent increase from the week before. and the number of critically ill karone of ours patients has also had a record high, hostile ahead here on al jazeera, not backing down protest, isn't it on promise to keep rallying against the military. and the deal that reinstated the prime minister ah
hello, thank you for joining in most of our storm energy around that central mediterranean is pivoting further towards the east and same goes for that shield of snow through the balkan. so sophia bulgaria could pick up about 5 plus centimeters. the worst of the weather i think will be over western areas of turkey gathering steam through the eastern med, we've got a fire hose of rain for on talia. so think we could pick up about 50 millimeters and those winds will crank up to 65 kilometers per hour. our next atlantic storm swoops in. look what it does to ward. hi barea. we've got a lot of rain and wind, so let's break it down. 6 meter high waves for that north coast of spain, about 40 millimeters over 12 hours. so the threat of flooding and those winds that kilometers per hour. the center of the low. this storm, by the way, storm bear a barely in to the republic of ireland. the united kingdom and i think the worst of the winds will be for the republic of ireland, pretty close to about 100 kilometers per hour. and we've got snow for northern
areas of england. scotland lower ground 2 centimeters, but higher ground 10 centimeters rainy day in london with a high of 8 degrees. all of that energy over the mediterranean is whipping up the sand and does for the northeast of libya, the northwest of egypt. cairo's got a high of 20. that's it soon. ah. the end of the country with an abundance of results frayed far and wide indonesia whose ferns forming we moved full to growth and frock. we balance for green economy, blue economy, and the digital economy with the new job creation law, indonesia is progressively ensuring the policy reform to create quality jobs invest . let me park when denise is growth and progress, invest in indonesia. now, lou
ah, welcome back to watching al jazeera, a reminder of our top stories here. the sour police in the gambia have fired tear gas to disperse opposition. supporters protest as they were, seni dalbert should have won the president, adama barrow was declared. the winner with 53 percent of the vote. south africa's president has again criticized sweeping travel bands imposed on his country because of the army kron variant. so are on the poser also accused. western governments are failing to deliver curve. 19 vaccines. china says the u. s. is a diplomatic boy thought. next year's beijing winter olympics could harm relations . american government officials will not attend because of what they call human
rights atrocities. and genocide, while the international olympic committee is also responded in a statement, it said the presence of government officials and diplomats as a purely political decision which the i o c and its political neutrality fully respects. this announcement also makes it clear that the olympic games and the participation of the athletes are beyond politics. and we welcome this. well, an italian is a political analyst who specializes in chinese affairs. he accuses the u. s. and its allies of double standards when it comes to china. this was expected, the u. s. has been telegraphing this move. it's won't be surprising if australia and also great britain follow and suit. these are quote, principal actions that these groups are taking. meanwhile, in afghanistan, a broken battered abandoned countries, interfaces, starvation. so i guess principles are something that are very, very selective allegations against china over sion. john, i've never been shown,
they're all instigated in most instances leading back to adrian's ends and jamestown foundation, which is dubiously funded by ca. so at this juncture, this is the war of words. it'll accomplish nothing except breeding bad blood between these 2 nations who actually need to come together in order to address the world's real problems. are sure the pandemic and the economics. the base of the problem is that china's success has brought it to the forefront us is not used to having any rival whatsoever. and they're acting particularly as a hedge mom who's going to be king of the hill. they do not want anybody challenging us dominance and militarily, lyrically and economically. ironically, if you look at us politics and the us itself it's, it's ribbon by all sorts of factions, lyrical stalemate,
violence on the street. i don't know that this is a country that can stand up and say, look, you should follow us, look at our how well we're doing. it's time for us to lead by example, instead of by preaching. now moving on and ethiopian government forces, say they have one more ground against rebels from the north. that to grind people's liberation front will t, p l f appears to be retreating in the m hara, and a far regions that neighbor t y, where the rebels based soldiers, loyal to prime minister. our b of men have now taken back the towns of dessie and con boettcher. their strategically important because they also sit on a major national highway on a spokesman for the d. ryan forces confirmed they have withdrawn saying, we left north show a culture and dessie as part of our plan. there was no organized unit to liberate these towns and the residents. noah's and abuse generals know it, things are going according to our plan. the rest is just circus ensued on protest,
as their say, they will not give up demonstrating against october's military take over security forces via t, aghast to disperse crowds, marching near the presidential palace. people are also angry about a deal involving the military leader and the reinstated prime minister. they say abdullah hum dog has betrayed them by agreeing to a government dominated by generals. him. morgan reports now from cartoon. it started with a few 100 people in different parts of the dance capital cartoon. but soon the numbers swelled to thousands. protesters returning back to the 3 to voice their condemnation of a deal fight between the army leader general at them for the hyper hahn and prime minister of the lamb duke. last month, the agreement came afterwards. hamlet, a military takeover in october, placing him built under house arrest for nearly a month. i get the deal has a lot of things that have begun could be interpreted in favor of all demands or against it. but the problem is it was signed by someone who doesn't have
a right to sign it as someone who doesn't deserve it. go ham, look, just not represent those on the street and the minute treat cannot be trusted. the takeover is how the dissolution of the 2 year transitional government, which was shared by the military and civilian coalition, known as the forces of freedom and change. they were presented the protest movement that led to the overthrow of sedans. long time president ahmed and bushy. other regions around the country also came out in protest of the dean, including the state of casela in the east. therefore, in the west and just the estates which neighbors harton. i scare monkey in a corner from the army, can't be possible government because they are the ones who come and kill us. they can't be the same ones to come and rule us. so we're coming out against the army chief behind and his deputy. i listened to recommend a feeling they should not use their bullets and tear gas on us and our children. let them use it in a row for the army should be in the barracks. if they were wearing civilian clothing, they could have stood with us all across the mile. thousands gathered in front of
the presidential palace on monday to voice their anger at the military and the deal . security forces use tear gas to disperse them. since the takeover medical workers there at least 44 people have been killed and nearly 300 injured yet more protests are scheduled for the coming days. many here see the one stop until their demands for a full civil in government is meant to guarantee through dance transition to democracy . he but morgan, alta 0 horton, leaders of nasal allies, the u. s. u. k of france. germany in italy have all held a joint phone call about ukraine. they agreed a united front as needed to confront what they see as russian hostility. a build up of russian forces on the ukrainian border has raised fears, ever possible invasion, which the kremlin denies. the issue will likely dominate virtual talks between vladimir putin and joe biden. on tuesday, march, the white house is not katrina says the president to underscore, of course, us concerns with martian military activities on the border with ukraine and reform
. reaffirm the united states support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the ukraine. it's also an opportunity to discuss a range of topics in the u. s. and russia relationship including strategic stability, cyber and regional issues are but you can certainly expect that ah, the are, are concerns about the military activities on the border. i will be a prominent part of the discussion on cadre leak is a senior policy fellow at the european council. she says the u. s. can't meet the gremlins to monta, keep ukraine from joining nato. i don't think by then when want to expand nato touring his term in office, but clearly not in his plans, but stopping it officially for goods, but would require unanimous decision by all nato allies and actually the redrafting, some of nato's internal documents. so he cannot clearly deliver on him on,
but i'm sure that he will try other means to deescalate the situation because he doesn't need a crisis in your crating. i think thought denise, serious about seeking control away ukraine, future political choices. and ideally, russia really would like to discuss european political order to carry tilda and ukraine place, which should be outside nato. so i read all but mobilize ation, military mobilization as a whole west discuss, raises sue's actually putting pressure on the west to discuss the issues. but the 1000 wants to discuss because the west clearly has been shunning but conversation whenever russia has tried to make stars on it. i don't think that's preparation for actual invasion like a coming weeks. but it doesn't make it any less dangerous because i think russia is
quite serious about its ends. so we could still see a military attack, except it would come suddenly, we would not see months of preparation leading up to it. a memorial has been held to mark the 80th anniversary of the japanese attack on the u. s. naval base. pearl harbor o. bombing in hawaii, in 1941 killed 2390 americans. the u. s. had been neutral and the 2nd world war until that attack president franklin roosevelt. then declared war on japan the very next day. he famously describe it as a date which will live in infamy or meanwhile, officials in hawaii, a warning of catastrophic flooding. and coming days as a storm sweeps through the island, it's bringing high winds and heavy rains that have already closed flooding and the capital, honolulu, its down electricity lines,

a lot of violence in our country. we haven't journal law, and if we go back, we will die. we have decided to wait and see what happens and see what decisions the u. s. government will take us president joe biden suspended the remain in mexico program, cooling it in humane, but a court order has forced it to be reinstated form the president. donald trump used to the policy then known as the migrant protection protocols to send more than 70000 asylum applicants back to mexico was they were forced to wait for months. human rights groups reported several cases of kidnapping, rape, and torture. but the white house says improvements to the scheme will give asylum seek legal representation. this program is, hasn't done, was it imposed under it has imposed unjustifiable human costs, pulled resources and personnel away from other priority efforts and failed to address the root causes of a regular regular migration. deeply flawed under guidance from mexico. the u. s.
will now provide cobra, $900.00 vaccinations and exemptions such as for those with physical and mental health challenges. the 1st migrants are expected to be returned from the state of texas and california. this shelter is preparing for a massive influx of people from open, but under, but at the, near my year we are preparing to increase the capacity of the shelter. we had a capacity of 150. now we want to have a capacity of more than $200000.00 migrants because we believe that they'll be mobilization to woodson, northern border. while there's deep concern about the return of the policy, some remain hopeful. they can still begin a new life with their families. it's really hard to be racing and now again with the migrant protection protocols, but i think it is a really good thing because we have the hope to get another opportunity to wait and see if they let us cross into the u. s. and be without families, the mexican government has said it's committed to maintaining the health and safety
of asylum seekers. as the new program gets under way these migrants are hoping those promises are kept. her marriage old 3 out to 0. now wrangler refugees and the united states are suing tech giant messa, accusing it to failing to act against hate speech targeting them. they want $150000000000.00 in damages. they say facebook's algorithm encouraged uses to express extremist views. more than 24000 ratings have been killed in the law since the government crackdown in 2017 hundreds of thousands of them fled to neighboring bangladesh. oh, there this is al jazeera, these are the headlines. china says the u. s. as diplomatic boy cause of next year's beijing winter olympics could harm relations. american government officials will not attend because of what they call human rights.
