10:12 am
his previous comments have been controversial, saying that he thinks some people have to make sacrifices. yesterday we were talking about the ioc turning down the request to hold a minute of silence to mark the bombing of hiroshima. last night he held the first press conference as the game started, in which he did praise the japanese government at the organising committee, saying that the games are going well above his expectations. on better because controversy is when he was asked about the cost. the japanese government spent an enormous amount of money to host the games and yet it will not see any financial benefit. that is when he said, it would have been easierfor the ioc to cancel the summer games, but instead he said that the ioc decided to invest to give an opportunity to japan and tokyo, was his direct
10:13 am
quote. that hasn't gone too well how much the japanese public because of course we are seeing this surge in covid—19 cases. he ruled out any links between the olympics and the covid numbers, but a lot of people here disagree. the very fact that the games are dear green place may have contributed to the surge we are seeing today. have contributed to the surge we are seeing today-— seeing today. great to see you, thanks so _ seeing today. great to see you, thanks so much _ seeing today. great to see you, thanks so much for— seeing today. great to see you, thanks so much forjoining i seeing today. great to see you, thanks so much forjoining us. i seeing today. great to see you, l thanks so much forjoining us. all the best to your dad, as well, he has been enjoying the golf today and is looking forward to the baseball this evening. we watched the women's madison yesterday and they dominated that event right from the beginning. apparently it was much closer in the velodrome today and it was denmark who took the gold. team gb have got a silver. denmark and 43 points,
10:14 am
gbri a silver. denmark and 43 points, gbr140 and france coming in with the bronze. that is the very latest from the velodrome. we will have more throughout this evening. the uk government has urged all british nationals in afghanistan to leave the country, because of worsening violence. taliban fighters have made significant gains in recent weeks, including the capture of one of the country's provincial capitals. the united nations security council has held an emergency meeting to discuss the situation, as western forces withdraw from the country. we have got to get involved in trying to make sure there is a political process to help chant what is becoming an appalling situation very quickly. that means supporting the afghan government, it means stepping up efforts at the united nations, where there is a need for more leadership in order to get parties around the table and kept that process back up and running. christopher kolenda is a retired us army colonel who commanded troops in eastern afghanistan before acting as a us representative in talks
10:15 am
with the taliban from 2010 to 2012. he's been speaking about the current situation in afghanistan. it feels very frustrating, quite frankly, to have spent a lot of time on the ground in afghanistan, both in eastern afghanistan as a commander and then later as a senior adviser, plan time with their consulting for non—governmental organisations, supporting them. we have all put a lot of energy and a lot of heart and soul into afghanistan and none of us would have imagined leaving the way the united states reportedly left, sorted in the middle of night, slinking away. it is frustrating, it is embarrassing and we certainly believe that we would leave afghanistan and a much better condition than it is now. unforced errors latest on this path. the face

of the afghan government are too afghans have seen has been a predatory and kleptocratic government. i remembertalking predatory and kleptocratic government. i remember talking to some elders and they looked at me, i said, who do you support? they looked at me and said, we are not on anybody�*s side because nobody is on our site. the government robs us, the taliban beat us and asaph palmsource, so you tell us who we should support? unfortunately, it is that many afghans have found themselves in, to the extent of the afghan government has been predatory and kleptocratic, it is driven afghans into the arms of the taliban who are now fighting the afghan government. wales has moved to covid alert level zero, meaning most social distancing rules and most other restrictions have been lifted. from today, there are no legal limits on the number of people who can meet and meeting indoors is allowed. all business are also allowed to re—open too, including nightclubs,
10:17 am
which have been closed for the last 17 months. face masks are still required in most public indoor places, as well as care settings and on public transport, but they aren't required by law in pubs, restaurants or schools. joining me now is our wales correspondent hywel griffith. this comes with a warning from the first minister, though. yes. first minister, though. yes, absolutely- _ first minister, though. yes, absolutely. alert _ first minister, though. yes, absolutely. alert level i first minister, though. yes, absolutely. alert level zero | first minister, though. 1a: absolutely. alert level zero doesn't mean zero restrictions and comes with a great deal of caution from mark drake fruit. he has warned that this pandemic could yet take some twists and turns, and other variants could even see some measures being returned, so rather than seeing todayis returned, so rather than seeing today is any kind of charming estates, it is more the last lap and easing restrictions. that is not to say that people would be making use of those freedoms today. families allowed to mix and each other�*s is

10:20 am
to the an area very close to her house that was under threat. i'm actually at the place where the fire started. we are day four into this freak inferno, which shows no sign of letting up. you can see some of the smoke behind me. this is one of the locations where several of these fires are raging. as i said, it was the start of this inferno, this is where it started initially, and it is back into this location again, with fresh flare—ups, kind of leaping to life, even when people thought the situation had been brought under some kind of control. this is along a main motorway, which is acting as a kind of stop between this nature reserve and main residential district. the scramble for the authorities is to block flames that are coming down these slopes from sweeping
10:21 am
in and tearing into these residential districts — that would spell complete and utter catastrophe for the capital of greece, athens. altogether we have seen 98 new fires sparked in the last 24 hours, 154 blazing altogether across this country that is under siege by these blazes, and 64 of them actually active as we speak. two met police officers are in hospital after an attack in north london. three people were arrested after the incident in wood green. one police officer was slashed with a knife and a second was assaulted. a 61—year—old man was also stabbed. the university of sussex is trying to incentivise students to get vaccinated against covid—19.
10:22 am
campus authorities have introduced a raffle, with the main prize being a cheque for £5,000. anyone who can prove they have been fullyjabbed or are exempt from a shot can be entered into a draw for the money. let's discuss the raffle more with professor kelly coate, she is the pro—vice—chancellor for education and students at the university of sussex. thank you forjoining us. where has this idea come from and why this incentive? the idea came out of the united states, from universities that were incentivising students to get vaccinated. we thought it was a great idea. we want to welcome students back safely when they come backin students back safely when they come back in september, and this was a way of incentivising and saying thank you to those who do get the vaccination. do you think it'll work? we think so. we have talked to
