march 33 years since the qu, that his taste to grap power. his party has been disbanded after his overthrew but protest this day. the loyalists are still in charge of hustling nor the military and power. now are members of machine security committee, but all they did was replace the figures, but the form of ruling policy are still in key positions and government institutions. nothing has changed and that's why we're are protesting. we're out to overthrow the security commission and the former ruling policy. security forces you steer guys and live ammunition to disperse. protestors. several were killed and hundreds injured. more than a 100 people have died in anti military demonstrations. the military has repeatedly stated it will not step down unless elections are held or a political consensus is reached. reaching a political consensus has so far proven to be difficult. talks between political parties facilitated by the united nations african union and the original i guide
11:18 am
were by quoted by pro democracy groups and later suspended. and no new date has been set for its resumption. political parties have refused to join the talks, saying they want to end the military take over and not enter into a power sharing agreement. and how much can you leave a political solution if it achieves the aims of the streets? and we can be a part of it as a political process and the current form is something we put objective conditions on. if they're not met, i can't go forward. the most important condition is the aim of the political process. if it's ending the military takeover, we can talk about the way otherwise we can't go ahead and get up. but the military continues to hold onto power provoking chaos on the street and hope to transition to democracy. faith further. here morgan, alta 0100 to me to michigan state media have published the draft to the proposed new constitution that would give president case site even more power. it's expected to be put to a referendum this month, one year of the sites. fact,

11:20 am
a national council as the regions and district. and then that would be quite a different state structure, but ultimately the power resides in the hands of the president. i think the one of the things that would be most inflammatory is what if you don't find what? because the last 10 years and 10 say it's been a debate about political islam. this is something that has thought, nobody's thoughts, a lot of device on social media. and they've been more and more homes for a boy crossing over the referendum. a tele bonds, reclusive supreme leda has joined a meeting of thousands of religious scholars, clerics and tribal elders in afghanistan is the 1st gathering of the lawyer jiggle . since the taliban sees how many a year ago, the stop was interrupted when 2 gunman was shot dead by security near by. 3 day all male gathering is expected to address topics including education for women. a be
11:21 am
bas robbie was the 1st ever female governor of an afghan province. she explained why there were no women at the meeting. fortunately there was no and the women represented and their new age. ok. so it was only meant that attended to do it. so this is something that kind of on don't believe to women's rights. they did it thing. yeah, i got to get the mindset is that women should to stay at home and do the house rules and just the taking care of children and to make food for, for mine and afford them. so that's why they don't believe to women's dice. and it was the reason that they did and vice, or didn't have any women inside them do it. it's a kind of a traditional system in our country. but of course now we have, we had the constitution because the constitution made it everything very clear.
11:22 am
they wanted to actually get the legitimacy from that to the agent, because they took the power by force. and so there is no legitimate government, and not honest in no country, and the war to cook nice on a government. north korea has suggested that the coven 19 outbreak is coping with originated from south korea. claims south is denied north korean officials say the 1st cases can be traced to foreign objects. on a hillside in come, gang county may the border. robert bryan reports from south north korea has implied the most likely way the objects could have arrived was by balloon defectors in south korea, sometimes release balloons carrying propaganda. messages that always anger the north korean leadership conference and general cock im, joked little an emergency instruction has been issued to vigilantly deal with alien things coming by wind and to trace their source including balloons. in areas along
11:23 am
the demarcation line, south korea has dismissed the possibility that balloons could be the source routine community. and it is the common view of experts that the spread of them fiction through the virus being carried on. the surface of an object is virtually impossible. and gig, the more likely cause of the outbreak is thought to be from china with restrictions on the border finally being eased earlier this year to allow much needed trade after being sealed. since the start of the pandemic accusing the south of being the source is politically convenient, with a conservative administration now empower here, which is viewed as being far more unfriendly. it also helps to shift the blame at a time when the north is facing multiple crises. without vaccines, north korea has relied heavily on promoting exercise, homegrown remedies and medicines to overcome the outbreak. and with less than
11:24 am
$5000.00 new cases of fever a day, it seems to be over the worst of it. but there are also warnings about an increase in waterborne illnesses from abnormally heavy, some floods which have damaged agriculture, and further adding to north korea's ongoing food shortages. rob mcbride, else's era, sol. only 16 people have been killed in landslides, north, east indian state of manor, poor or the 70 others. a 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 worn . there may be more to come with the as i river close to best types, emergency crews and peru working to contain a forest fire near the archaeological site of my 2 peak too. if i was started on tuesday by farmer's burning cross and debris on land being east for crops,

the flames have been closing in on the ruins which were built by the ink is more than 500 years ago. the bottom administration's plan to tackle the climate crisis has suffered a major setback. supreme court has decided to restrict the ability of the 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 have required 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 cast out in the government goal to have a power grid running on clean energy by 2035 president joe biden called a devastating an 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
11:26 am
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 in meeting the goals of the paras agreement, the secretary journalist said repeatedly that the g 20 must lead the way in dramatically stepping up climate action. david wallace wells is an author known for his work on climate change, including the book, the and habitable, as he says, the ruling won't have any immediate impacts. 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,
11:27 am
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 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 affirms that carbon was a dangerous a dangerous station in the world and sort of qualified in the clean air act. from decades ago. what it did find was that they couldn't institute comprehensive national 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 would route for her that power to be deployed. but again, it's not a reversal of anything that's being done right now. beating you as stalks have
11:28 am
suffered the biggest slum for the 1st half of the essence to maintain since 1970 s and p 500 sled. more than 21 percent from january to june, phase of recession and week consumer spending have been feeling the sell off. asian markets have also been struggling. this week the white house announced its planned to fight monkey pox expense say that the u. s. has dropped the ball on testing while demand for the vaccine exceed supplies. cable alexander is more kneeled 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 that tens of thousands of vaccine 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 a half years later than i. i was on my on my arm and then the next day woke up and
11:29 am
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, there have been nearly 5000 confirmed monkey pox cases in 49 countries and 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 numbers have doubled in a week. now more than 300, 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
11:30 am
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 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 worried it could be too little, too late. we would need to be vaccinated widely, and we need to be doing that several weeks back, reported to multiple states throughout the us. let's do the 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 in the city like new york, then we might be feeding.
