10:03 am
the only candidate in the election that he won. but he has the credentials. i think the china wants right now, and it's a reflection. i feel of what their priorities are. john me doesn't have any real political experience. i can tell you what he won't be doing. they'll be no talk of him, sort of expanding democracy, increasing political reform here in hong kong. he said in his address a short time ago that he wanted to turn on call much more into a hub of new industries. he said he wanted, hein con, con, to cut some of its old dynamism return. but there was no mention of hong kong easing. it's strict 0 cove it policies, which means that people flying into hong kong have to quarantine for a week and business group say look, this is one of the reason why hong kong economy is continuing to sing some. we've also been hearing from president teaching ping, he's been addressing delegates attending the swearing in ceremony. he said one quite interesting thing. he said that there is no reason why the one country to
10:04 am
systems formula under which hong kong is governed, cannot continue beyond 2047 at the moment. we are half way through that transition period from british to chinese rule. in 2047. hong kong is supposed to integrate into the rest of china, but she is saying now while there's no reason why this arrangement can continue, but of course it would be very much on china's terms if that were to happen. and he's 17 people have been killed and dozens, when did when russian miss alice hit residential buildings nearby ukrainian poor city of a desert. a rescue operation is on the way to find people buried in the rubble. the biden administration's plan to tackle the climate crisis has suffered a major setback. the u. s. supreme court has decided to restrict the ability of the
10:05 am
environmental protection agency to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. the case was filed by republican lead states. it was in response to a government plan that would require them to shift away from coal energy. the supreme court ruled the e p. a does not have broad authority to regulate emissions. the ruling costs doubts on the government's goal to have a power grid running on clean energy by the year 2035 president j bought and describe the court's decision is devastating on a step backwards. a sentiment echoed by the united nations. well, it is not our role to provide legal commentary on judicial decisions of individual individual member states. just more generally, i can say that this is a setback in our fight against climate change. when we already far off track it meeting the goals of the paras agreement, the secretary general has said repeatedly that the g 20 must lead the way in dramatically stepping up climate action. david wallace wells is an author known for
10:06 am
his work on climate change, including the book, the uninhabitable earth. he says, whirling won't have any immediate impact. this was a ruling that applies to possible potential hypothetical powers that be environmental protection agency might use in the future. they were originally designed to be part of obama's clean power plan, but that power plan was essentially never really implemented. and so these are powers which are not, not being used today and essentially never happen. which means it's more of a limitation of what might be done in the future than something that's going to dramatically affect america's emissions or even apartment policies. right now it's, it's the handcuffing. it means that less can be done in the future than we might have otherwise. imagine but it's not a setback. the scale. busy of the dogs decision that reversed roe v wade last week . importantly, the court did not find that the a couldn't regulate carbon emissions at all. it just found that an attack that
10:07 am
affirms that carbon was a dangerous a dangerous agent in the world and sort of qualified them the clean air act. from decades ago. what it did find was that they couldn't institute comprehensive national. busy standards as a way of driving down or out carbon emissions from the power sector, which means they can basically continue to regulate power generators as they have, but not good dramatically further on the basis of climate change, which is unfortunate. i wouldn't route for her that power to be deployed, but again, it's not a reversal of anything that's being done right now. as for sale now to ukraine, when the 17 people are dead, dozens wounded after russian missiles hit residential buildings nearby cranium, port city of a desolate sketch. allan fisheries lie for us, and keep or more, can you tell us about this attack? no. dis alan. well it happened in the early hours of the morning. local
10:08 am
officials are saying the rockets were fired by aircraft over the black sea. at 2 buildings were her 1st was a residential building at night stories, tall part of it has collapsed and that's where the majority of the dead were found in the last couple of hours rescue efforts have continued there on this site as they tried to find anyone who may be trapped under the rubble also attacked was a recreation center. there are 3 people were killed including one child and and so the, the local authorities are again coming the area to see if there is anyone still trapped in the wreckage. but there will be deeply concerned this attack from those russian aircraft over the black sea. and it comes just hours after vladimir putin again insist that the russians are not targeting civilians. while he was speaking after a conference in turkmenistan and he said, look, the russians have got the technology that they don't need to target civilians that
10:09 am
they know where the military targets are and they can do so with precision. and he was forced into this comment, of course, after a shopping center was attacked in ukraine just a couple of days ago, and 18 people there were killed. so the russian leader will come under renewed pressure, given this new attack, people will see it was very clear that this was a civilian target, that this was a residential block in odessa that has been hit where that 14 people were killed. 3 others in the rec center, but of course, we've seen that vladimir putin has been largely impervious to international pressure over the last 4 months. thank you for that. alan fisher with an update from keith us president joe biden has reiterated washington support the nato's collective defense packed. speaking at the end of this year's summit in madrid, he said the military alliance will defend every inch of its territory. he also pledged a number $800000000.00 worth of us weapons for ukrainian forces general has the
10:10 am
latest from madrid, against the backdrop of russia's war in ukraine. nato has agreed the biggest changes in its defensive posture since the cold war. we have faced the most serious security situation in decades. but we are, i seem to the challenge with unity solve members contributions to an enhanced state of military readiness on nato's east and flank were led by the united states. president joe biden said the lines had never been stronger or more united. we reaffirm that article 5 commitment is sacred and an attack on one is an attack on all and we will defend every inch of nato territory. every inch of nato territory president fight and announced a permanent army base in poland. the 1st full time us deployment on nato's eastern fringes, the u. s. will also send 2 additional squadrons of f. 35 jets to the u. k. sweden

10:12 am
the only hint of this unity came from president of the one who'd lifted his objections to finland and sweden membership bids on tuesday night. after a deal was reached between the 3 on measures that could lead to the expedition of members of curtis groups wanted in turkey, he warned that if he didn't see swift action on those commitments, well, the membership ratification process could yet be held up in the turkish parliament in his closing comments, nato secretary general described a world that is more dangerous and unpredictable, and he wore the things could get worse. a summit that took in climate change terrorism and the weaponized zation of space seldom strayed far from the russian strength. during the whole, al jazeera madrid still head on al jazeera, ah, in other ways of anger in sit down again, it's military will,

10:20 am
a lot more power and also diminishing the judges. so one of the things that's been in it is about a striking for judges, whether the military and the dates that's going to be restructure in terms of how the parliament operates. they'll be a national council as the regions and district. and then that would be quite a different structure, but ultimately the power resides in the hands of the president. i think the one of the things that would be my son from a tree is by what the biggest, the last 10 years. to say there's been a hot debate about some killers who is lamb. this is something that his phone, nobody stops along the device from social media. and the been more and more calls for a boy crossing over the referendum. the tele bonds, reclusive supreme leda has joined a meeting of thousands of religious scholars,

10:22 am
that's why they don't believe the woman's dress, and it was the reason that they didn't and vital didn't have any women. and it's a kind of additional system in our country. but of course, now we have, we had the constitution because in the constitution made everything very clear, they wanted to actually get the legitimate from that sewage because they took the power by force. and so there is no legitimate government and honest, and no country in the world to cook nice tolerable and government. only 16 people have been killed in landslides, in the north, east indian state of money, poor more than 70 others are missing. heavy equipment has been deployed to help with rescue operations. one landslide has a camp for construction workers on a railway project. the disasters were triggered by 3 weeks of rain. authorities warned them maybe more to come with the as i river close to burst in its banks meal

10:26 am
u. p. t. u. the fire was started on tuesday by farmers burning grass in debris on land being used for crops. the flames have been closing in on the ruins, which were built by the inc, has more than 500 years ago. north korea has blame what it's cooling foreign objects for causing its 1st coven 19 outbreak. according to state media, an 18 year old soldier and a 5 year old child, touched on identified materials near the board with south korea in early april. they later showed symptoms and tested positive for the virus state medias. as nearly 5000000 people have become sick since the outbreak began, rob mcbride has more himself. these are interesting claims and they would seem to fit the timeline of this sir outbreak. north korea 1st admitted to having the outbreak in mid may, it spread very quickly through the entire population at one point or recording hundreds of thousands of cases of fever every day. and it is so it would fit with
10:27 am
that timeline. and it says that it can all be traced back to this. is it an event that happened in early april when several people it says, came across what it calls aliens? things on a hill side in kang, one province. this is a province over on north korea's east coast that borders with south korea along the a, d. m. z. now without specifying exactly what these alien things were, north korea is inferring that they were brought by balloon. now defectors, groups here in south korea will regularly release balloons into north korea, carrying propaganda messages we know are from various postings on social media, that there has been some balloon activity in the past few months. interestingly, some of these balloons actually carrying things like masks and medicines for north korea to tackle this outbreak. so it is a good fit for north korea to blame these defectors. it's thought in reality the most likely way in for the corona virus would have been across the border from china because at the beginning of this year,
10:28 am
some of the restrictions on that border were lifted to allow much needed trade back and forth this week. the white house announced its plan to fight monkey pox. experts say that the u. s. has dropped the ball on testing while demand for the vaccine exceed supplies. campbell alexander has moved from new york weeks after the 1st cases were discovered in the us. the white house is starting to take action to tackle the spread of monkey pox this week, announcing the 10s of thousands of vac seen doses will be made available. but for some it's too late. gerald feebler started seeing the tell tale symptoms of monkey pox. earlier this week. i then found one of my foot and then a few hours later than i was on my on my arm and then the next day will company. they were kind of all over my body. he was one of hundreds of men who missed out on the vaccine. this new york city clinic in the chelsea neighbourhood had just a 1000 doses, but ran out in one day because of overwhelming demand. globally,
10:29 am
there have been nearly 5000 confirmed monkey pox cases in 49 countries. at one death, the world health organization emphasized that anyone could catch the virus, although it is primarily affecting gay men. however, the w h o says it's not yet an international public health emergency, but it could be soon. in the u. s. case number's had doubled in a week. now more than $300.00. many experts believe the number is actually much higher. epidemiologist, calisto macro funny has a friend who had monkey pox symptoms, but had to wait 7 days before he could finally get a test that came back positive for me. that's an indication that testing is not accessible. and, and so we don't really know what the numbers are. the u. s. federal government said they would release a little more than $50000.00 doses of monkey pox vaccine immediately to various
10:30 am
cities throughout the united states. and about $750000.00 doses are expected to be made available by the end of this summer. but many health officials worry it could be too little, too late. we would need to be vaccinated every, we need to be doing that several weeks back, reported to multiple states throughout the us. let's do math, 50000 doses right now. it's not, it's not very much. there is only a short window to stamp it out before it spreads even further. my worry is, if we don't deal with this outbreak here, and now, especially a city like new york, then we might be seeding a pandemic which is then endemic. and that is the worst case scenario. everyone wants to avoid. gabriel is dondo al jazeera new york.
