i'm sorry, kelly, welcome to the program. lease in cars extends the largest city al mahdi tell state media that dozens of protesters have been killed in what they call an attempt to storm administrative buildings and police stations. they say several police officers were also killed and cassock. sounds president has described the demonstrators has terrorists and has reached out to neighboring russia for help. russia is now leading in alliance of former soviet states, in dispatching what they call peacekeeping forces, including paratroopers. and the 1st protesters protests were sparked by storing soaring fuel prices. and are now in their 5th day, ah, this eye witness footage gives some idea at the level of unrest continuing through the night in kazakhstan, looting, and an attempt to break into a local bank. after skirmishes with security forces,
12:03 pm
a rush lead military alliance has now agreed to dispatch so cold peacekeeping forces to catholic storm after the countries president asked for help in controlling the protests. the unrest originally began over the weekend in the remote oil hub, as janet was then at the price of fuel. but the unrest quickly spread to other cities leading to a nationwide state of emergency in our marty, the police were deployed to curb the unrest. but tear gas and stung grenades have done little to dissuade the crowds. neither have hundreds of arrests or the imposition of a curfew. and newton restrictions in several regions. cassock president, cathy, joe mac talk. i of said he would reinstate price controls. but protest is a now calling for political change beyond the price of fuel. in a surprise, move president took i of sacked the government and took control of the state
12:04 pm
security committee ousting, former president and long time roland new assault. and that's of i have talk i of has lent on the military and is now called on the collective security treaty organization, a moscow based alliance of 6 former soviet countries for assistance which has been granted catholic stones will thorough tarion government usually tolerates little real opposition but this time, the protest is angus seems to have called the authorities off guard. it's bringing journalist for his pioneer a central asia specialist. he's following the story for us from prague. bruce, very difficult to get information out of the country right now. we are hearing that dozens of protesters have been killed. police also saying that several officers have also been killed. what are you hearing from your sources? we know that there's actually information that causes authorities to provide it so, so this is really about all we know a dozens of protesters were killed over and i say at least 8 of their own police
12:05 pm
officers were killed. but you know, this is, this is only, we're only talking about almost 2 years. and you mentioned it's hard to get it done right now. the internet's down phone services are working properly. so these protests were going on in dozens of cities around the house on it, and we only have a rough idea of the death toll and the amount of people who didn't arrested in the commercial capital. what's happened in some of the other places is still unclear. tell us a little bit about the progression and the mood because of course this began as a protest movement against a rise in fuel prices, but it seems that it has tapped into some wider discontent. just walk us through the background. but yeah, you know, this has been kind of building up for several years. if i had to put it to one particular point in time, i would have to say in, in march 2019, when nurses tom, those are by other funds 1st and, and up to that point, only president stepped down and he handed overpowered to counting tomorrow to the
12:06 pm
president now, now there were expectations on the part of many people in cars. it's done that this would be change of pivotal moment in the country and that there would be new ero, her forms. the standard of living might, might start to improve a little bit more, and none of that is really happened. there's been protest off and on the know about the fact that opposition already been registered to participate in politics, which i have said was something that would happen. the fact that the standard or living really hadn't gone up very much if at all, in places that you know, i've made promises about paying attention to all kinds of different sectors of the energy sector, different different parts of the country. and really, none of that ever happened and now it's almost 3 years later. and so i think when the oil workers started to strike over the increase in the price of fuel, it just sparked, you know, a fire that went quickly encompassed all calls. and the question now is what happens next? because we know that the president is attributing this to terrorist forces that the
12:07 pm
bis discontent. we also know that the collective security treaty organization of russia, lead postal, the military alliance says that it will now send so called peacekeepers. and that's the term that they're using. peacekeepers to cause extent at the countries request . how is all of this likely to go down with protesters and what do you make of the language that's being used to frame this? you know, obviously you gave up on negotiating and trying to get some kind of a compromise to this one. he switched to the language of terrorists that were supposedly foreign trained. it seems absurd. i've been, i've been watching for years and years and watching this conflict as, as it evolved, there was never any hint of any terrorist or any other motives than to try to get the government to pay attention to the needs of the people that the things they were chanting when they brought us the chart, which means get out old men were directed and those are by but, but more broadly at the cause of government which has failed to change or make any
12:08 pm
changes in the days when those are by and, and overpower everything just spoke of domestic domestic dissatisfaction, there was no hint that this was guided from outside the country. so, but to get the seo to come in and he needed a pretext. and so then he came up with this. it's a band of terrorists that were foreign train. it's not going to sit well with the people because of course, they know that they've had problems for years that weren't resolved and not other be branded as terrorists. purely to provide a reason for bringing, you know, journalists press, print, air, central asia, specialist. thank you so much for joining us with a view on cats cause it sounds like you, australia has agreed to delay the deportation of novak joke of it. that's after the tennis star put in a legal challenge against his fees. a rejection joke of it had travel to melbourne to take part in the australian open. but he was denied entry on arrival and was detained at the airport for several hours. he has been taken to
12:09 pm
a detention hotel to await deportation. joke has been granted a medical exemption to take part in the grandson tournament, but as continually refused to say publicly if he's been vaccinated. earlier australian prime, mister scott morrison had this to say on the matter on the issue of mr. joker, the rules are rules and there are no special cases entry with a visa requires double vaccination or i medical exemption. i'm advised that such an exemption was not in place and as a result, he is subject to the same rule as any one else. alice kept more on that we are trying now from melbourne by sports journalist courtney walsh. courtney. we understand that you watch the online hearing today what stood out to you. it was simply a conclusion to 24 hours. i supposed to meet him in melbourne after 9,
12:10 pm
making rides around 11 pm last night. mostly procedural matters today. basically trying to lie to franklin for which the parties can provide evidence the federal circuit judge who is here in the matter, it's expedited, given that, you know, as opposed to the need to assess whether he's visa status and the documentation that was used to again, that these are, is actually legitimate which the federal government and government officials have decided that the documents that i sent or not know clearly also wants to be able to play the strain on which begins in 10 days time by the time of his hearing on monday, which was the quickest in terms of the quickest turn around for the hearing. you were waiting detention for 76 to 9090 hours and it will be away from the straight up beginning. it's really an extraordinary set of circumstances leading into
12:11 pm
a grand slam. and there's also a bit of a diplomatic, we have to say, tug of war going on right now between australia and serbia over those. tell us about the politics of play. well, the both prime minister. so both ladies, the countries have elections this year and is certainly suggestions from the way in which the surrounding government certainly is, has tackled be sure of the last 24 hours that there is some posturing applied the federal government and the state government, the local law victorian government with balconies based have been located 20 states over the last 12 months. so. so in terms of the handling of the, the pandemic, the opposing party in charge that's continued in there is some, you know, some school of thought that novak, despite, you know, clearly it would be preferable for him to be vaccinated or to study explanation status of the civil reasons that know that my a fan himself is a porn in this situation, not in some regards. you know,
12:12 pm
as far as when he was granted the exemption, the medical exemption, the grant, which is not yet clear a lot of be trends. so he is a case of a privileged act late getting access into the country. but in because of that privilege, because of the fact that he's such a prominent buyer, it's possible that in cities been himself a target of a situation where this is a stipend being made by the government in terms of you must be vaccinated to come into the country, and given that, i mean, how do you, how are you seeing the potential reputational damage hair? not only for joke of it, but also for the australian open itself. it's always been leverage, says the have you slim. oh, or notice that the slam at the rally? know, i could not roger federer coined expression several years ago when i, when each trachea in the tournament director, correct tale has really played out on that. they've tried to every week and domain in viet late and there's no didn't applies to love coming down to australia. you
12:13 pm

12:14 pm
of the virus. here some other stores make news around the world. north korea says it has launched a hypersonic missile in the 1st major weapons tests this year. for young young said that it hit a target 700 kilometers away. hypersonic missiles fly at more than 5 times the speed of sound from go to south korean president, moon j. n said the launch could create further tension in the regions and calls on the north to engage and talk to people. in indonesia, 3 people have been killed. nearly 30000 displaced after flash floods hit the north of the country in the district of north ha, more than 11000 homes were submerged by the floods that followed heavy rain. on monday, the italian government has approved measures to make coven 19 vaccines mandatory for everyone over the age of 50. italy is struggling with record high levels of new infections. it was the 1st european country to be hit by the pandemic,
12:15 pm
and has one of the highest depth at least 13 people, including 7 children have been killed in a fire in the u. s. city of philadelphia, smoke detectors failed to go off in the 3 story building owned by the cities. public housing authority. firefighter say that they are investigating the cause of the place. they not, it states is marking the 1st anniversary of the storming of the capital in washington on january the 6th, last year, a mob charged at the building just as lawmakers inside began the process of declaring joe biden, the winner of the presidential election. it came after a fiery speech by president donald trump at a rally near by alleging electoral fraud, and urging people to quote, fight like hell. he w, as in as pull reports o, long before election day donald trump had announced that if he should lose the
12:16 pm
white horse, then only because the election was ripped. it didn't come as a surprise that thousands of tron followers gathered in washington d. c. the very day the peaceful transition of power was meant to take place. january 6 and 2021. in there he is in the very i had been at the mall for hours to report for the dublin hughes and could physically feel how the more changed during the speech of donald trump. the protests so far had been intense, but with every sentence donald trump spoke, it got more and more aggressive. our country has had enough. we will not take it any more as, as was, this is oliver. no one was prepared for what happened then. neither police nor politicians, the images of trump supporters storming the capital of the united states shocked
12:17 pm
the world and left deep marks in this country which claims to be one of the oldest democracies. the findings of the investigations showed how close a real could it off was this cold january afternoon one year later, the u. s. seems to be even more polarized dent radicalized. law enforcement might be better prepared for future attacks on the capital. but what about us democracy? so well, federal prosecutor say that as many as 2500 people may have been involved in that january 6th attack. the legal and political consequences are far from over with a congressional investigation underway. plus lawn force meant pursuing cases across the country. democrats are under pressure to conclude their work before november's mid term elections after which they may lose control of congress. let's bring any deb, he is willing to croft who has more on this. don't marble. thanks,
12:18 pm
sarah. yeah, this is one of the largest most complex investigations in american history. let's have a quick look why that is. so there are 2 tracks here. first, there is the legal, the criminal side of things. and so far, we're looking at a $725.00 people arrested in connection with the capitol attack. now some of them have military and law enforcement experience, or belong to militias or other far right groups. but many more our 1st time offenders who say they simply got caught up in the chaos of the day. now, around a $165.00 guilty police have already come in, and 70 of them have been sentenced. many more will go on trial starting next month . and then there are $350.00, more suspects that federal agents are looking for. they're still at large. now, not all the defendants were directly present or actually breached the capital. and that is making for a very difficult prosecution. and a lot of disagreement about how hard to go on those involved is also unclear if these investigations will extend to big name,
12:19 pm
media or political figures for any of their potential involvement. where might that come in? well, that's the political side of things. now you might remember republicans rejected a broader more formal investigation. so democrats who control the house at the lower house of the legislature. they establish their own special committee to investigate the causes and consequences of the attack. now does it 9 person panel and include just to republicans, and that shows just how few republicans are willing to publicly cross donald trump . this committee has gone through a huge amount of evidence, including $300.00 witness statements. 30000 records 52 subpoenas, a subpoena legally requires a person to answer questions. and if they refuse, they can be held in contempt of congress, which is so far happened to 2 people. both of them close trump advisors. others are suing the committee to keep it from getting access to documents. and the question is, how much will this committee go after high level trump allies, or even donald trump himself? and what will they do with any evidence they collect?
12:20 pm
and if democrats lose the house in november, this committee is likely to get shut down. but the biggest question is, doesn't even matter. the committee says it wants to have high level hearings in prime time to present his case to the public. but house already did that when they peach. donald trump, for the 2nd time, this time, last year in connection to this insurrection, and the senate acquitted him, it didn't change public opinion much then. and that appears to still be the case depending on the poll or the question asked a considerable number of americans. and sometimes, majorities of republicans believe the lie that the election was stolen, despite no evidence. and all the evidence to the contrary. many, many fear for american democracy or expect another mob like attack republican lead states have tightened voting rights and trump has never been stronger in his party . most those convicted have further involved in the attack are getting light sentences like house arrest fines or probation was just a few people facing some jail time. and that's because the u. s. doesn't know this
12:21 pm
kind of political turmoil. so coming up with the appropriate punishment that fits the crime is a big challenge. judges disagree, but sentencing. many of the individual alleged crimes are small time sarah, but they add up to the most serious attack on american democracy since the civil war. it's a situation which is certainly very much still developing and willingly have to mention of that president biden and vice president. camilla harris will be speaking at 3 pm central european time. today. i do stay with us here and eat up the news. you will have coverage of that speech in the meantime. william, thanks so much for breaking it down for us, sir. i'm going to turn to some other news now. we're heading to israel in fact, where residents of so called mixed cities are still working through an outbreak of violence that occurred in the spring of last year extremist, jewish israelis clashed with arab israeli citizens since the violence to young people with neighboring businesses in the city of load have rebuilt and said say that they are shared experiences have brought them closer together. this life has
