11:03 am
the credibility given the fact that he was voted out of parliament of the last general elections. he was brought in on the nationalist have been made prime minister replacing the form of reminisced, am i in the roger boxer, and now he's acting president. are so for the protest. does that said they wanted a system change. they wanted a clean sweep of the boards are, this is not a development they are relishing. they are in fact, really, really angry and frustrated that it has come to this. the irony is that gotta be roger park. so once at peak popularity are coming in with the 6900000 volts at that residential election has had to leave in the face of a massive public backlash and a protest. i centered on him while a man who was voted out of parliament did not have a single seat and now sits in the seat of the acting president of this country. ah, and that irony is not mister, but for protest says, i mean overall, they feel that
11:04 am
a drama grimacing her is as much to blame for the state of things in this country as are the roger boxes. obviously, with a little bit of bad luck in terms of the pandemic, the fall of tourism and the economic crisis. all due to that. so that's where protest is kind of stand at the moment. men are we have been focusing a loss on the purchase in recent days. remind us again how tough things are in shlang at the moment. absolutely, i mean, day to day is a struggle for many, many people. obviously, that is a top class that don't really feel of the sort of pinch, but for a large, a sward of society, not just the poorest rung of society, but also the middle class. every one is feeling it. i mean, you find that people, when they take a, you know, their wallet to, or the market or the grocery shop,
11:05 am
things are 3510 times more expensive than they used to be, or inflation, food related, inflation is in excess of 80 percent economy. there are some economists actually claim that it's more than a 130 percent. so all of a sudden when, for example, your gas or your fuel is taking away a huge chunk of the money you do have in and what's left or all of a sudden has to be tempered in terms of what you buy, how often you buy it so it's affecting the food on the table. the medical a sector is an absolute chambers. as much as a brave face, the government has tried to put on it. i mean, we've had doctors really, really are struggling to keep their patients alive. i mean, there's a story that broke a short while ago that said a doctor had actually harvested the pacemaker from a patient who had died to reuse on another patient. i mean, this is how desperate things are babies are incubator tubes are,
11:06 am
were being re used. i mean, and dr. say, look, they took a not, they were in this to use their knowledge, their skill to save lives, but it's being taken out of their hands. they don't have the tools and the resources to be able to do that. and it's a very, very frustrating time. i can thank you for that. michelle fernandez there for us in colombo. yes, president joe biden is due to meet gulf leaders and other regional heads of state on his final day of the middle east, tor, on and arrived in saudi arabia on friday, sparking criticism at home by bumping fis with the crown prince mahonnan been so long. i whitehouse corresponding chimney hawk. it has a story you as president joe biden arrived in saudi arabia to a subdued reception. that may have been because of his past comments about the kingdom . we were going to in fact, make them pay the price and make them, in fact,
11:07 am
the pariah that they are applied. she made as a presidential candidate after a cia report suggested the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon may have ordered the 2018 killing of journalists, jamal could shout g. the president's goal is to re set relations and convinced the kingdom to pump were oil to bring down fuel prices in the united states. i'm doing all i can to increase the supplier for the united states of america, which i expect to happen. but strain ties have made that a challenge, evident is biting. arrived at the saudi palace, offering the crown prince just a fist bump, a moment not well receive back in the united states. cuz shock geez, publisher. fred ryan, of the washington post, calling it shameful. delivering m b as the redemption he was desperately seeking.
11:08 am
and cassandra, his fiance, warning biden, that the blood of any future victim will be on his hands. i'm sure she feels her way. i was straightforward. back then i was straight forward to day, basically said that he was not personally responsible for. i was earlier and biden's meeting with the crown prince. the press confronted both men drove off with all the time i . this was the response of the crown prince. he appeared to smirk a serious question left unanswered with reporters. then i should out. joining us now here in the cedar is our white house correspondent, committee, hulk, it timberly. i think it's fair to say that president barton hasn't had the easiest of trips. he's now on his final day in the middle east. what can we expect from
11:09 am
biden's meetings today? yeah, well the hard work is over for the president. i really, the american media that has been following him was focused on that hand. shake fist bump. what was it going to be mo, went with the crown prince. so the president is perhaps breathing a sigh of relief. and now he's into an area that feels a little bit more comfortable for him. he's a, a senior statesman. he has that foreign policy experience behind him. he's going into a realm of diplomacy that he feels more at ease. so he's going to be in a series of meetings that can we have some key bilateral meetings with leaders of the u. e. iraq. egypt, before he expands, to meet with the broader gulf cooperation council. that includes also a rock jordan, egypt. it's known as the g, c, c plus 3, and this is where there's going to be the opportunity to have those broad diplomatic discussions and really get into kind of the meat of the visit that the president was really trying to do. that is,
11:10 am
reassert the united states in the region in terms of its interests in its values. this is where the president really hopes to make some gain. so this is important to the present. this is important to his advisors because what they see as, as this being critically important for the relationships but also of strategic value to the united states. because the big concern being that if the united states does not maintain these relationships, there is this sort of security vac you and this vacuum that is increasingly being filled by both russia and china. how do you think he will return to the u. s. as he is he going back empty handed willie have achieved what he wanted from this trip? in short? no. and this is a problem for the president and the white house is already doing a little bit of damage control. they sent out a fax sheet. ah, less than 24 hours ago where they tried to kind of portray that the president has secured this oil, you know, deal if you will,
11:11 am
to get the saudis to pump more oil, which was the goal of this visit. but in fact, this is something that was already announced by opec about a month ago. and it what this is, is to increase for july and august above 50 for 50 percent above the existing levels of july and august. so this is nothing new and it's sort of being passed off as something new because there is nothing new to announce. and so this is a problem for the white house as so essentially in the. 2 person it is as you say, going back empty handed and that's not a good look for a president who's already and popular a is trying to find a solution to these high fuel prices back at home and doesn't have an answer is already got a very low approval ratings in the united states, and this is not going to help that. so the president is trying to sort of tell some of the other successes that he feels his been chief to this trip, for example, allowing the israel to use saudi aris race for improving the ties between israel
11:12 am
and saudi arabia. but i can tell you, well, that may matter to the partners in the region, it's not mattering a lot to those back in the united states that are voting for him come november in those congressional elections, not the president, sorry, but his party members. thank you for that committee hook at our white house correspondent the israeli military says it's carried out an air strike on a hamas target in garza, after raucous were fired towards israel. your me says it had a weapons. manufacturing site has at least 2 rockets were fired from garza of the southern israeli city of asked lawn, and one was intercepted by its air defense system as get a unit outside whose life for us in garza city unit. tell us more about what happened. yes, melina calm has been restored now in the gaza strip. earlier this morning in the early hours of dawn we woke up on very violent to each really raids that to
