5:05 pm
you know so many challenges. hard, rocky barriers for instance, that impeded their progress at some points. yeah, yeah, yeah. it's not easy at all. you know, we would, they tried everything. they tried to come out and we tried to go through the same well, but it wasn't possible because very, very no doubt, very often to, to dig out, you know, another like guardian, exactly canyon though the, it's not stable. they found, you know, it's, it's very hard so they need to protect the body to protect the, the risk you agree or, you know, the members can i against the 5. that is the most important, you know, think that it's very hot. absolutely. and the conditions themselves,
5:06 pm
i mean how to rescue is continue to dig. i believe they are using their hands now, but one, making sure that neither the well nor the parallel chart that they've created that they don't collapse. exactly, exactly. you're talking about using the very good system to protect the people they are big and also the boy. so they said in a minute we can we can, we can see him and help us. we hope he's alive. the most important. yes. you and so many people, not just who come there to the side to support the family of around, but i believe that this is also being, you know, the live stream. the pictures are being seen on many moroccan television channels. this is something that has been really trending on social media across the
5:07 pm
world too. can you tell us about the sort of, you know, atmosphere there waiting for the rescue effort to be resolved? i can assure you that every house, every one we leads industry, everyone would fall by phone. he is praying for full right. i really, i really even though when you say this, i say i feel emotional. it's because everyone is just talking about ryan and they help to to, to see him out. and the life we hope so. and every moroccan, every are the men. everyone will receive a lot of gold from around the world asking about him, given suggestion and praying for around the world. and of course they've had some glimmer of hope when they've seen the images often because of that camera that was sent down there. along with i believe,
5:08 pm
oxygen and water and how difficult was it to do that and, you know, how much have rescue has been able to gather from what they can see of him. i really both have the information about the phoebe and given him the water bar. yes. the beginning of the beach or how long it was. all they fixed for me to pick and do and what it was. no, it's fine. it's good. you know, it's good. i just want to know about the pricing for this is the only thing we help now. it's to get off the phone with him. you know? sure. when you are the president of the chef shower and association of caving and
5:09 pm
mountain activities. have you ever seen anything like this before? no, no, no, no, no. well, like this one, you know, very narrow wouldn't. so something like that. you know? sometimes it can happen in that case, it would be, we know that in between brackets it's pretty easier than a well, right? narrow and is it because the well as so narrow, especially at the bottom, you know, i'm reading that it's only 20 inches in diameter at the bottom where he is, is that the narrowness of the well that makes it more complicated than a cave? for example. the people 28 it's it's very know the kinds of 2017. so we know it's not possible to control that why they opted to. ready to, you know,
5:10 pm
to go to another another well, just to show on. so again, we're looking at the pictures that we've been able to see of rayon, because of that camera that's been sent down there. now on friday, rescue was looking at those images believe that they were able to see him, that they were able to see him breathe. but again, because he is lying on his side, it's really difficult to determine exactly his, you know, the condition that he's in mr. hobby, how difficult has it been to rally the number of rescue workers who are there now? not just, you know, in this tiny village that's about this. i think more than 200 kilometers away from the city of chef shout. but also because of the pandemic
5:11 pm
doing a very good job and decide to try. and i'm really thinking that because it's not, it's not easy at all. you know too much, a lot of people to manage the risk you are the same time, but they are doing it very, very, very well. we wish you all the very best we thank you for your time. we know that your organization is involved in the efforts. this is a story that we are following very closely on the algae 0. thank you for your time . that is mohammed the awesome and what hobby, what al jazeera, our correspondence allow, is the following. the rescue effort and 1000000 and how about the digging operation is still ongoing. a little while ago, one of the rescue members came out of the tunnel and was very tied. but i managed to talk to him and asked him how many meters were left to reach ryan, and he told me it was one and a half meet his exactly. he said there are some difficulties and there was
5:12 pm
a rock that has hinted the manual digging. now they're doing horizontal digging and this has been going on now for 24 hours. people from different parts of morocco i here waiting for the happy news that rayon has been rescued and is saved. here we have well equipped ambulances with doctors, to take roy and hospital. we also have helicopters to help transport on to hospital to be given help and support. the most important challenges, the fragile soil that has led to little slides. and this is hinted the digging operation, but people are here to show solidarity with ron and his family. well, as i mentioned, the rescue operation is gripping the arab world call. santa maria has been looking at the reaction on social media. the hash tag is save rayon, but it is obviously more prevalent in arabic, in morocco, a small amount there. but i would say, actually a lot more over in the ravine peninsula, particularly in saudi arabia, where there are a lot of twitter uses there. i wanted to show you this morocco world news,
5:13 pm
the front page of morocco, world news dot com. obviously the top story, celebrities embassies express sympathy with little ryan, but also 123 of the 5 top stories are all about ryan. it's a huge story. obviously in morocco with people, absolutely glued to the television screens and there're their phones. morocco will news also put this out on instagram. i thought this is actually quite helpful. this is in the, the news you can use categories showing how this rescue operation is going to look . there's round on the bottom and you see there, if i, to circle at how the well narrows down to just 20 centimeters at the bottom. and then if i get rid of that, you say the 150 meters that have had to dig in and down to get to where ryan is in . now, hopefully getting to the end of that's official social media channels. i have been shaming and is all, this is just one example from the u. s. embassy morocco. in arabic, they're giving their best wishes to round and those who are rescuing him. and then
5:14 pm
i've seen a lot on twitter football as actually algerian football stars, including this former football andy de la, who has, oh, it's not china there. he goes, see, says infringing for severe liberty high on we must save a little ryan art work like this is actually been really prevalent or just selected a couple more here for you there. this one's quite nice on the left. see just down the bottom. it's got the world and around and that's what it says in arabic. it's like the whole world is down there with him. and this picture on the right, what we are all hoping for. moving on to other news for now in thousands of ukrainians in the northeastern city of card came, taking part in a solidarity march is the situation with russia remains tens. the city is located on the border with russia, ukrainian, president anonymous. zalinski has expressed concern that if there were any escalation cod kids could be the 1st city to be invaded by russian forces as got her corresponding child stratford. he is joining us live from cock give. we could
5:15 pm
see a lot of people, valley and singing songs early. a child, what's happening there with the situation is die down somewhat. now, most of the participants in the rally have gone home, but it has been interesting. as you mentioned, talk a very close to the russian borders about allows drive away. and as really reporting, it's believed that there could be tens of thousands of russian forces just over on the other side in russia. so you can imagine a hugely significant that people are coming out here and protesting and a show of unity against what they describing as rush and aggression. we saw various different members of political parties and actually groups here, patricia fighting in the riley and the voices, i say one very much of unity in the face of yes, what they say is as bullying from vladimir putin. one person i spoke to shade the
5:16 pm
very concerned indeed that sir, if they wanted to, if there was to be some sort of russian invasion, then it would split the community here even further. because let's not forget that they're all, there are a lot of people in this area who do associate with russia and very much respect and value, which is language and culture. somebody else saying that they had russian relatives on ukrainian relatives, sorry, living in russia and wouldn't be prepared to fight. and then as the rally, mild up there was a very interesting word said groom some of the speakers on the stage. one man is saying that if you want peace, then you should be prepared for war and actually saying that if people didn't have ammunition, there were ways and means of getting it. so where it has been a fascinating sort of insight into of the kind of emotions and phase that the city are feeling as these people have asked. again, what goes on,
5:17 pm
let's not forget that russia has repeatedly said that it has no intention of invading ukraine. prisons in ski of ukraine, telling his european and america partners not to escalate the situation with rhetoric and words and also the western media. certainly today is to say there was the show of unity as there are concerns in this city. the city of god gave that he's so close to the russian border. chance. thank you for that. is charles traffic with the latest life horizon cod can't thank him. still ahead on the bulletin. ah, neighborhoods tend to ruins is lance lies in floods, causes devastation in bolivia. ah

5:21 pm
a coordinated response to those problems will be at the heart of the meeting of the $55.00 member african union. if he appears prime minister, be out of used his opening remarks to address the conflict in the to grey region. our commitment to put st. last in global peace in our country shall remain. steadfast excellence is less and gentlemen, the greatest lesson that did your behalf limit or the past you is that we those the thought that if you're our african brothers and sisters, our existence or the nation would have been at great risk. and mohammed those and addis ababa with more least concerned about the number of coups these continent has had to for the past at, wanted, have years. 6 of them in total for them in west africa, which has traditionally been known as the cool belt of africans. and they are the
5:22 pm
eas, the shortfalls uncovered vaccinations in the continent, only 11 percent of the continents of people have been fully vaccinated, sofa and the ease a real need for a push on that. and now joining me to discuss all these are father is a former prime minister of the republic of kenya, rayleigh, or dingo, who is also a high representative on infrastructure for the african union. studying. are you seeing a resurgence of coups in africa? and there seems to be a disconnect between the lead us and the people. what in your opinion is causing this resurgence of a cruise when people were thinking that africa was finally on the road to democracy . well, it is a ugly aversion, regrettable development. the continent that to did democratization process, that it is, it started out in the early ninety's is,
