12:11 am
getting all the infrastructure in place, so people can return. but what they're returning to, well, that's going to take a lot longer to fix them on con, out is there a pin. within 7000000 people are estimated to be displaced inside ukraine, cities in west, in ukraine, a coping with an influx of people escaping the fighting and the other parts of the country. and now preparing for a search of new come, i should russia launch renewed offensive in the east of the country while were bright for ports. now from the western city of tempe hill around this provincial city lines of people waiting patiently or a common site. they wait for clothes and bedding donated by people in ukraine and from overseas, or for basic essentials, medicine and food. people like glued mila petrovna, who escaped the fighting outside cave with barely any possessions. ah, you may have me play equally weekend with nasa natal. absolutely not. let us,
12:12 am
can you just questions, sr. like the frame and ended up we had them, you turn off all and all cities in western ukraine and now dealing with an influx of new comers. people seeking refuge from battle, france as far away as kirk eve and matter you pole in the east. the easing of emergency measures means this city has reopened its weekly farmers market selling local produce for irina and other store holders. it's a welcome return ticket number that the numbers is important for as john money. and it's also good for people in here to take in advice that cheaply be that while they're a growing fears of what this war will do to agriculture in ukraine for now, food here is plentiful and cheap. here in the pacific crisis are the same as before and the snow different, so it's good that markets are open again and it was out of bill shows all the people moving here. need markets like these figures, but this city knows that a renewed offensive in the east will result in another wave of displaced people.
12:13 am
and what does it shouldn't promote group? according to some of the worst predictions, we can expect no less than a 100000 people moving into our region if we could in this city and in neighboring towns. so we are relatively, like other cities in the west to novel, picturesque, unassuming, and now a refuge from this escalating wall. rob mcbride, al jazeera turn up all ukraine. the un says there were no more than $4600000.00 ukrainian refugees around 60 percent of those have now crossed into poland. the vast majority, of course, a women and children un refugee and she says people crossing board is now are in a more vulnerable state. with less of an idea of where they might go. most ukrainian refugees as thing and reception centers where they give them food, medical care and information about onward travel. we are yeah, it's medical border. it's one of the main crossings for refugees. and we have a more than 2600000 refugees that have crossed the border into poland,
12:14 am
which is still bigger, still receiving from 3 and then what makes to thought unique. this crisis here with the refugees are almost all women and children. and that makes them very vulnerable, and for that reason we are trying here to provide this refugees with a safe, a place coming up on this new south from london. the well trade organizations slashes, global trade forecasts aft. the world's pandemic recovery is damaged by the war in ukraine. china easy summerall time measures in shanghai, but officials warn cases i still very much on the rise and support this multi time grand slam when he says good bye. once again. ah, a huge man hunt is underway. new york for a gunman who open fire on

a subway train during rush hour. 10 people was shot and 6 others injured at brooklyn's 36th street station. 5 of the engines are in a critical condition, but stable gave elizondo has worn out from brooklyn, new york 8 30 am. and the moment panic struck on a new york city subway train a confusion turning to sheer nightmare as it became clear shots were being fired in the middle of the morning. can you? ah, at the next station terrified passengers poured out of the carriages. so obviously struggling with wounds i was on 36th street, i'm going to speak and the drink and not to told everyone to get on the train. and i didn't know what happened. it was a scary moments. and i'm at 20 brit street. we're all told to get all those people scream for medical assistance. the scary moment amid the stampede, it appears to suspect managed to escape. these pictures posted a twitter show, the cornet she left behind. the attack happened at the 36th street station in
12:16 am
brooklyn, sunset park, leaving neighbors in shock. and it was like 9 or so. and, you know, and he saw commotion. wa com cars pulling up. so we were concerned griffin advantage . i was white on the new york police department later, gave an update on details. and the man, they're still hunting. an individual on that train dawned at what appeared to be a gas mask given to the canister, out of his bag and opened it. the train at that time began to fill with smoke. he then opened fire tracking multiple people on the subway. and in the platform, again, we will describe him as an individual. he is being reported as a male black, approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall. with a heavy build. he was wearing a green construction type vest and a hooded sweatshirt. the color is grey. the attack comes as many new yorkers are
12:17 am
increasingly concerned about rising crime in the subway system. eric adams, cities, new mayor, has only been on the job for a little over 3 months. he's a former and why p d police officer himself and he's made fighting violent crime and the subway system . one of his key initiatives. do your governor kathy hoko said crime each to stop. let me say no more. no more mass shootings, no more disrupting lives. don't worry, creating heartbreak for people just trying to live their lives as normal new yorkers. it has to and it ends now. some of the injured were taken to a local hospital. none of their injuries appear to be life threatening. a small silver lining on a day likely to shatter faith. the safety of the subway or sometime to come, gave rose onto al jessina, brooklyn, new york police and find the british prime minister in his finance minister over the so called policy game scandal makes boys johnson the you case 1st prime
12:18 am
minister to be found guilty of breaking the law while in office, his apologize for this, refusing to quit for beaching. coven regulations at his government office from dining, st. paul bannon explains. you must obey the rules on social distancing . and the messages were clear. stay at hermaline, don't mix with others. and yet, while the u. k was forced indoors into lockdown forest, johnson and his staff were breaking those laws and attending parties and other gatherings. party gate, as it was called, was splashed across the front pages. 2 downing street parties were held on the eve of the funeral of prince philip the duke of edinburgh, with the country in national mourning and queen elizabeth forced to sit apart from her family. now, after months of denials, prime minister has been forced to admit, he broke the law. i understand the anger that many will feel that i myself fell short. when it came to observing the very rules which the government i lead had
12:19 am
introduced to protect the public. and i accept in all sincerity that people had the right to expect better and not just the prime minister richey soon act, the u. k. chancellor, who also lives in downing street, has been issued with a police fine as well when the police investigations are ongoing, more fines could follow. at the heart of the anger over this scandal is the fact that in the height of the pandemic, the british public were legally prevented from gathering together from burying loved ones even from attending weddings. while at the same time, the people responsible for those legal rules here and down the street, where having bring your own boost parties and organizing, leaving dues for departing staff. some of which were attended by the prime minister . and the chancellor. boris johnson has always said that nobody told him that these gatherings were against the rules, but it's that, excuse the calls into question. his judgment, his character and his credibility. this is the 1st time in the history of our
12:20 am
country that a prime minister been found to be in breach of the law. and then he lied repeatedly to the public about it. britain deserves better the half to go. but to depose the prime minister, at least 54 m, he's from his own conservative party, have to trigger a vote of no confidence with the ukraine war still raging. even johnson's fiercest critics are uneasy with the timing the premise, the faces were serious situation, which the house of commons is going to have to deal with. because patiently, he has missile at the house. but instead, we're in the middle of an international crisis. and now is absolutely not the time to destabilize the government, a government that's actually leading the international coalition against bruton. those conservative m. p 's, who have a power to oust him, will return to parliament next week. and they have between now and then to way up
12:21 am
the appetite for calling the removal trucks pull. brennan, i'll jazeera downing street, was been plenty of reaction across the u. case political spectrum. the scottish national party leader has called for boris johnson's resignation. nicholas surgeon twisted people the law and repeatedly lied to parliament about the basic values of integrity and decency essential for the proper working of any parliamentary democracy demand that he should go. and if you take out, if i were to touch chancellor with him and the liberal democrats the, the ed davey weighed in as well to see the police have now completely shredded boris johnson claims that no laws were broken in number 10, he cannot be trusted. and cannot continue as prime minister nor the leader in any other organization would be allowed to continue after law breaking on this scale. or mo, who saying is a political commentator and a former press officer number 10 downing street. he joins us now from london move. thanks very much for joining us on the news. our. well, what's your take on the prime minister apology and get
12:22 am
a refusal also to step down. it was rising. the prime minister has refused to step down. anyone he knows him as well with him now you say he would like dug in and try to stay the course on this. you did have a bit more humility in the apology, which i think was right. but then there was a quick focus on the big picture. what are the things that he and his government on dealing with, whether is the russian born ukraine, whether is getting on with the domestic agenda here in the u. k. to try and make the point that he's trying to deal with bigger issues. and does this really matter? i think it's to be seen whether that will resonate with the public or not. and there was a question in his statement as well, around what it, there are more fines and he couldn't really answer that. i think that is the real potential damage to come because one find way he can say he didn't know he was
12:23 am
breaking the rules, which obviously is a debatable point. how many more times can you say that if he were to be fine again? so i think this is very much the beginning of the process, and they could well be more to come in terms of the drip drip that we've already seen on pot gate. what we've heard some thought from tori circles of this idea that the british public has kind of moved on is it that they've moved on from party gay, or they just war now by revelation after revelation. and i suppose there will be some people that see mister johnson as they say for a pair of hands in current, challenging time. yeah, i mean there will be mixed news on this. i'm not sure they've moved on his sides. we haven't really been talking about it because the focus, understandably, in the news agenda said to me, has been on the russian war in ukraine. but this has been happening in the background with the police. continuing to investigate the investigation is not
12:24 am
concluded yet. we are still waiting for great report as well. it's very easy for this to rise up public agenda again. it's something that a lot of people can relate to because they can remember what they were doing at the time and sacrifices that they have made personally. and i think m p 's that the prime minister needs to support may whoa, try and say that things have moved on, but they will be spending time in the constituency they will be hearing from the people they represent. views may change in the coming days and weeks more. i'm interested to know from you your perspective on, on the working relationship between where she cynic and boris johnson, you know, working together fellow breakers working together again in challenging times. what does that relationship look like going forward? i think behind the scenes is become certainly more and more fractured. there have been real disagreements on the direction,
12:25 am
trouble on economic policy. and do you have a small estate or do you have the biggest state, chancellor in the u. k here is had a very bruising week with various tax revelations and revelation about having a green card. this is really i them to an already terrible week for him. and i think there was a bit of all eyes on number 11 because it's a chance let what to resign. as a result of it, and we were told that he had been thinking about the last few days anyway. then the question would be will get a chance to designing, why is the prime minister not resigning as well? so they are not in a good position collectively, and i think it's very damaging for the conservative party with elections coming up lo, collections. in a few weeks that the 2 most senior people in the party senior people have a couple of both. now, todd with this bruship breaking the very rules that they themselves made. and this plays into the narrative of one rule for them. one for every one else which i think
12:26 am
is actually cutting through with the general public within their political commentator, more fun case. chinese officials, a warning the spread of covered 19 in shanghai is not under control despite the easing is some restrictions in the commercial hub, the cities to eat last time left many residents without access to food or medicine . the easing of restrictions is teared with about 15 of the cities 25000000 people still borrowed from leaving their home. shanghai has had the highest official infection rate in the country. since the pandemic began. katrina, you have more now from beijing. shanghai authorities say 43 percent of all neighborhoods in shanghai have had, they have restrictions either. but what this means really varies from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. in many cases, what it means is that if your particular residential compound has not have had any positive co vid case for about 2 weeks,
12:27 am
you may be finally allowed to walk out your front door. and that means you can get some walk around the courtyard of your compound, but in many cases you're not allowed to actually leave your compound and entered public areas. and for the relative few that are allowed to walk into the streets, there really is not much to do because the majority of businesses remain closed. i think the bottom line is that in shanghai, most of the 25000000 people living in that city are still under some form of strict locked down. and the reason is because of the numbers on tuesday, we had 23000 cases or just over reported of curve at 19. this is slightly down from the figures on monday, but it's still nowhere near where authorities want those numbers to be on tuesday, a shanghai official said that the outbreak is still not effectively under control. and so what we're seeing here is the government really under increasing pressure to do something. it says it is eating a restrictions, but just really mildly because they are facing
12:28 am
a lot of complaints about the way this lockdown has been handled so far. there's lots more still to come this hour indonesia parliament passed through the bill tackling sexual while and which was previously regarded as a private massa. dozens are killed and devastating floods in south africa. club zulu natal, proven and in sport and early contender for catch of the seasons baseball action coming up later. ah. you're locked into your world whether update for europe in africa. hello everyone. we've got some disturbed weather toward the west and also the east. let's go region by region right now and break it down. so outbreaks of rain across siberia more so for that eastern portion of spain, not too far away from valencia. we'll see some pretty powerful winds here as well.
12:29 am

12:30 am
african stories from african perspectives, machinery, songs of me, no mama go now when i did it with your documentary, from african fill me from wanda and bookkeeper. fast. i found them home in the coach, africa direct on al jazeera. it's the largest war in europe since world lou. this president, putin re, i mean what belong to russia? was natal coming to growth and what does the end gate look like? an in depth look at the war in ukraine, hooton's, blonde, or the west neglect with ukraine,
12:31 am
the seeds of whom. on a judah lou ah, a reminder of our current top stories here on al jazeera, russia's president has defended the war in ukraine as a noble mission that will achieve its goals. he says, after meeting his bell ocean came to part, not a mere boots and also said peace talks with you. craig had come to a dead end. the mayor of mario pool says an estimated 21000 civilians have been killed in the besieged ukrainian port city. the military is warning, the russian troops are likely to capture the devastates of city and see new york place as searching for a government who opened fire and a busy subway carriage. during the morning rush hour,
12:32 am
10 people were hit by gone far and 6 others are injured. well let's bring you a quick update on that story and the search for the attack her gay bellas, and it is live at the scene game. what are you hearing right now? well, police are still looking for the suspect in this shooting from murray tuesday morning here in new york. but just within the last few minutes from various different sources, we're hearing that the police have found a rental van that they believe is associated with the suspect. they have not found the suspect yet, but they still searching, but this van police thing is somehow related to this suspect that he perhaps even drove his van to new york or near the location of the shooting. and they have apparently found this van unoccupied. just a couple kilometers away from where the shooting here took place. so we expect to
12:33 am
hear from more from the police later. but what this essentially is, is it perhaps per for the police, or maybe closing in a little bit as they start to gathering information from, from anonymous tipsters that are calling into tip lines. and also just from the evidence that they've been gathering over the past several hours, trying to get any more details on this suspect where he could be, they have not released his name only identifying him as a, as a black male. identifying that he was wearing a vest and a mask at the time of the shooting. other than that though they do not know what direction he left and how he left after the shooting took place. but clearly the police think that they have, might have gotten a break here. in this case, at least finding a van that they think is associated with him, gave a list onto their live with that update from new york cape. thank you. we're turning to rushes war in ukraine, the world trade organization said the conflict has damaged the world's economy. at
12:34 am
a critical point in its recovery from the pen there make its warrant of a food crisis because of surging prices. is revised dime is forecast for global tre, go this year from 4.7 percent to 3 percent. well, treat organizations as global tre could in shop to 3.4 percent in 2023, but of estimates depend on the crane conflicts outcome. and it says with russia and ukraine, both major supplies of green and fertilizes disruption to exports, could hit poor countries, the hardest, including some $35.00 countries in africa. a potential food crisis is looming. food and energy prices were already high by historical standards before the war. low income food deficit countries, so their food bill rice, 20 percent in 2021. an increase of a $120000000000.00. we need to act an act decisively on this issue
12:35 am
of food in order to avoid food riots as the light cove we tree, we begun to experience in 2008, 2009 food crisis that we already seen in some countries. no see demonstrations in sri lanka in, in different countries all over the world. well adam, her, she's a visiting economist of the economic policy institute and he joins us from washington, dc ads. and thanks very much for being with us and add some what's your take on this forecast? what's the landscape looking like from your perspective? well, as troublesome as that outlook you just reviewed, say, worried that the situation could be even more tenuous. as he mentioned, this conflict of created a lot of uncertainty and we don't know how long the conflict in ukraine may enter for. secondly, the u. s. federal reserve is preparing to high interest rates quite sharply. next month at their open market committee meeting. when that happens,
12:36 am
the growth that the united states has been experiencing is going to be cut down along with the import that that growth buys in emerging market and developing economies. when the interest rates in the us are, we can expect the capital in financial capital is going to flow out of those countries back to the us. and that's going to lead to currency depreciations making it harder for them to import the energy in agricultural commodities where prices are spiking as well to service their debts. adam, when, when the ukraine conflict started, it was being called a new era of economic warfare set to spend to the world economy yet further. and i suppose we're already seeing the impacts in places like tra long and of course, beyond. yeah, this impacts of the conflict are going to be felt around the world. because russia and ukraine are such central producers of energy and agricultural commodities.
12:37 am
russia producing about 10 percent of the world's oil and gas producing about $1.00 and $6.00 tons of agricultural commodities grants and so forth. but they're also exporting considerable amount of fertilizer to the rest of the world. so not just countries that are importing food stamps from directly from ukraine and russia are going to be impacted. these are global markets or global prices are set. so everyone is going to feel the brunt of the ad. and we heard the w t o is direct to general, they're talking about taking what she called decisive action to avoid food shortages . but i'm wondering with so many factors play across the globe. what can actually be done is going to be a tough crunch because we're not just dealing with price spike, but actually decrease in the quantity of agricultural commodities that are
12:38 am
available to supply the world markets. so there's going to be need for considerable support to food dependent food insecure countries that will be facing rising prices and time ads. and lastly with you, what's your view? and what we'll see in, in the short term, in terms of impacts, particularly on developing nations, which i guess are going to be hit hondas. yeah. and that the, you know, these shocks from the ukraine crisis are coming at a time when cobit is running rapid. again, through the global supply change with the really severe locked downs experienced in shanghai, china, and other cities. their reports that feed the world there have a ground to a standstill. that's not going, that's going to affect not just the guys that are being export it out of china to global supply change, but it's creating backups in the shipping and containers that are needed to make the entire global economy run. adam,
12:39 am
