6:00 pm
and redefine their status in society. misses that. nigeria's women will witness on al-jazeera 0 0. this is the news hour on al-jazeera. i'm fully back to go live from our world headquarters in doha, coming up in the next 60 minutes, was more than 20 rockets rained down on kabul, killing at least 8 people i saw has claimed responsibility. the attacks come as the u.s. secretary of state is in qatar where he is meeting both sides in the afghan conflict . and so this hour, iran shuts most businesses and clamps down on travel,
6:01 pm
as it struggles to contain a covert, 19 say, and eyeing the rising sea levels, a new satellite blasting off with a mission to keep track of one of the most challenging effects of global warming on far as small, have all the data sport including counting down to kick off. it's now exactly 2 years to go until qataris world cup and organizers say preparations have been largely unaffected by the corona virus pandemic. thank you very much for joining. as i saw says it's behind rocket attacks in afghanistan's capital that have killed at least 8 people. the interior ministry, says dozens more have been injured. the attack came just hours before the u.s., secretary of state michael bell was due to hold talks with afghan government and
6:02 pm
taliban negotiators in qatar, capital doha. earlier this week, the pentagon said it would soon pull about 2000 troops out of afghanistan. for a begins our coverage with this report from kabul. schoolgirls running for their lives after a rocket lands near their school, part of a coordinated attack on the capital. kabul of the, of the more than 20 rockets landed in residential areas near the green zone, where many embassies are based. it was a little after 8. 30 in the morning when the 1st rocket landed in the afghan capital for the next 10 minutes. it felt like kabul was under attack. witnesses say the attack during the morning rush hour was timed to cause maximum damage. but they could, it was morning and we were leaving our home when an explosion happened 2 of my sisters and my mother wounded. so we took them to hospital,
6:03 pm
i would have thought the way it was around 9 am. rockets hit the bakery wounding an employee who needed hospital treatment. lots of shopkeepers are going to suffer financially because of this. i still has claimed responsibility for the attack. it came just hours before the u.s. secretary of state mike arrived in qatar is capital doha. he's talking to both afghan government and taliban negotiators. involved in peace talks, there shows richie's and security that are just pressed. yes, again, so that the sort of weaponry gets into the city. and secondly, it's part of the trend where the suits is 90 minutes even at a time of trouble and so that they won't launch attacks. and sometimes i, i so has been behind recent attacks in the capital gunmen stormed
6:04 pm
a couple university. 3 weeks ago. at least 22 people were killed. the government says in saturday's attack, fighters fired the rockets from the back of 2 trucks. it's investigating how the vehicles managed to enter the city undetected, posing more questions about the government's ability to keep the capital city secure. contrary, i'll just see you. and for more on the u.s. visit to speak to stephanie decker live here in doha. so stephanie micron pale meeting both sides of the afghan call, say terry, in doha today, just how challenging is it to bring them together with everything that's going on back in afghanistan, the deteriorating security situation there of the security situation. afghanistan has been pretty bad for a long time and take care once you've been trapped for started. this is between the afghan government and the taliban. there been complaints that it's become worse. of
6:05 pm
course a days attack was claimed by isis. so nothing to do the taliban. what we have now is texas state peo, part of the 7 country tour he met with captors emir earlier today with the deputy prime minister. he's taken the opportunity of being here to meet with both sides. again, he was here when those talks were mentioned september, of course they are the result of a lengthy and difficult negotiations and his deal signed between the americans and the taleban in february of this year. now, what are we expecting? he's going to be urging them to go to the nitty gritty, so to speak. and they're still talking about technical issues fairly, the 2 sides talking about what legal framework, what religious legal framework should be used to govern these talks. so they haven't even started sitting down opposite each other to talk about the complications when it comes to cease fire when it comes to how a power sharing agreement in kabul is going to move forward. he doesn't have much sway, let's say, i think to really solve it. it's very,
6:06 pm
very complicated. these are 2 sides that have been fighting each other for decades . there is mistrust even today, the taleban came out with a statement where it condemned the leadership in kabul for urging the u.n. security council for continuing to impose sanctions on the senior leadership of the taliban. so it just gives you an indication of how complicated this is going to be . he is, however, taking the opportunity of being here as part of this, showing, let's say, tour of his to talk to both sides. and i think again, give the message of the americans are keen for them to start moving forward. and the u.s. secretary of state, also talking with qatari officials. what's on the agenda there? what is he trying to achieve? yes, this is really part of the trip. the main part is talking about involving the forces in the news and that is very much anti iraq after is an ally of iran. the blockade is high on the agenda. a discussion of this administration also said they're keen to try and resolve, but i think that's still
6:07 pm
a little early to call. but certainly there is a think that that will be discussed. the blockading countries want to cut ties with a rod. it's one of their demands for lifting the blockade. something catchy refuses to do. so it's a complicated situation. i think he's trying to push any kind of, let's say gays in the last months of this outgoing administration. of course, as u.s. president, donald trump still haven't admitted defeat, but had, as a mayor has called president elect joe biden, to congratulate him on his way. and so whether they discussed that, we don't know, there's been very little information coming out of what we do know is that a player was in his last night here, meeting with the taliban. he met with the afghan government a couple of hours ago. so we have to wait and see if anything comes out of that. stephanie deca in doha, thank you. the united nations says a full scale humanitarian crisis is unfolding in northern ethiopia. the un has called on the warring sides to hold fighting immediately. so more aid can be
6:08 pm
delivered and refugee safe zones can be set up. the ethiopian government launched an offensive 2 weeks ago on the t. gray people's liberation front. both sides have accuse each other of killing civilians in airstrikes and indiscriminate attacks. an official from the grave region has accused government forces of court, wanton killing, and as called on the international community to do more to help is also accusing neighboring eritrea of supporting the ethiopian government offensive. if you o.p.'s government and military have repeatedly denied targeting civilians saying they strike only the left are, gets our resources very much interested in wanton killing of civilians and of towns. in fact, it has a forces, have a contingent of trucks that are meant to export to transport goods and items that they steal from from the towns the temporarily occupied. it's
6:09 pm
rather strange resources working because with sources in the destruction of private property, in many parts of the in the number of civilians who are being displaced. it's members. meanwhile, those who are fed the fighting across the border into sudan are afraid of going hungry and say they're desperate for help in him. and you know, when we came here, we didn't find any services. we, in the medical grid that we took from the mill look at this massive crowd. some people get trampled and stand in long queues to eat. only have one meal a day. so you must know that that would people just want to eat and they say we didn't die in the war. but now is it possible that we die of hunger and understand how the government should help those of us who are suffering from hunger? we ask the government to help us make whatever they can. we can't do anything alone
6:10 pm
. speak to morgan now who is live in the diary, near the sudan, ethiopia border. he's the refugee, in fact, continues, and the numbers that are seeking help from ethiopia seem to be on the increase. tell us 1st how this is all unfolding where you are. while fully we can see more and more refugees arriving here to get out of in various refugee camps. now this one here is called and we spoke to the officials who are responsible for the camp, and they say they receive up to 1000 refugees here alone. now those are mostly refugees who came from border points from the neighboring states of i'm speaking to those refugees, they all say that they lack basic services. they say that there's a shortage of clean drinking water shortage of health care and shortage of food. they say that they line up for hours and hours to get meals. now we also spoke to the world food program and they say that they've started distribution. logistics was an issue for them to get to the refugees, but now they're working on it and they are planning to distribute it for the
6:11 pm
refugees who are here. but let's take a look at the camp itself. it's not new, it's a camp that's about 85 kilometers away from the sudan if you'll be a border account that was established in 1985, and then shut down in the year 2000, only to be opened 20 years later to receive refugees. so it is used as accustomed to receiving refugees, but this time the influx of refugees, the number of people who are arriving fleeing the conflict in the tigre region, has been overwhelming to the point that the officials here say that this camp capacity is up to 10000 but the expect the figures to be much more than that and are calling on agencies to open new camps for those refugees. tell us about the needs of the people who are there right now and how easy it operation proceeding. how well coordinated is yes or between aid organizations on the ground and sudan's government? well, the biggest need, when you listen to the refugees here at the camp, they say that they need shelter. that's because again, most of them have been transported from the border point in a state which is
6:12 pm
a neighboring state and were brought here by the thousands 1000 at least transported every day. and so this camp was not prepared to receive those refugees . so people here say that the 1st thing they need is shelter. the other thing that they say they need most is health care. they say that many of them have been walking for days to cross the border from if you're into sudan, and then to get to crossing a river. and then coming here. so they say that they need medical access or medical health care access. something that they say is lacking because of the number of people who are at the camps. they say that yes, there is a health facility, and there's water being provided there is food being provided, but compared to the number of refugees that are actually here, that's not enough and they've been calling on to provide more now are going to stations, mostly u.n. agencies, say that they're coordinating with the government of sudan to try to respond to the situation, but they say that they expect up to $200000.00 in the coming 6 months. so there are concerns that the influx of refugees will be too much to respond to in such
6:13 pm
a short time. morgan reporting there live from near the ethiopia sudan border. earlier we spoke to come polson, who's with the world food program and is working in the camps in sudan. he says feeding of thousands of refugees is the top priority. well, the task is big currency. even h.r. reports that some 35000 people have a right as of yesterday and probably more are coming across the border today. what we are doing right now is trying to assist them at the border crossing and then trying to continue that assistance once they settle in one of the camps with longer term assistance. so initially we do to contribute to unity or for hot meals. and we also provide them with high energy biscuits. once they settle in the camp setting, we provide them with a monthly ration that should sustain them. here we also have to work with partners, other than u.n.h.c.r., working with minister of health, with unicef, to work on the nutrition programs to make sure that women and children get the
6:14 pm
right nutrition should they have suffered before or was coming here. both the united nations agencies that work on the medical side n.g.o.s are working hard right now to cover the medical needs. w.s.p. focus right now on food nutrition just except for and to some extent also providing i think the support for agencies responding to this crisis. there's last more ahead on this al-jazeera news hour, including $1000.00 cases in sweden and so or why the government says it will not change its no longer down approach. this year's g. 20 summit is taking place a very chilly, but that hasn't stopped it from generating controversy. and in nashville have reached a major league soccer postseason ends tie details coming up later with the resurgence of covert $1000.00 cases across the globe as many countries tightening
6:15 pm
restrictions. poland's prime minister is urging families to council travel plans, schools, bars, restaurants and theaters will remain closed until after christmas. cameras, as largest city toronto is going back into lockdown. the prime minister says a normal holiday is out of the question. in order to get through this winter without overwhelming our health system, without losing too many more of our loved ones, we need to do one last big effort these coming months and it starts with the coming weeks of really tightening up, which is why i'm back here in front of my house telling you it's time, it's time to tighten up. meanwhile, singapore and hong kong are postponing the launch of their quarantine free travel bubble after a spike in infections in hong kong. and japan is scaling back its government back
6:16 pm
campaign to encourage domestic tourism daily cases have reached record numbers for 3 straight days. iran is struggling to contain a 3rd wave of infections, 0 authorities at closing most businesses, and clamping down on travel between major cities to try and slow the spread of big has a report from tehran. nearly 500 people have been dying from covert 900 every day in iran, as it battles a 3rd wave of corona virus and daily infections number more than 13000. that's the highest the country has had since the start of the outbreak. current prevention measures don't seem to be working. now the government has imposed a 2 week lockdown that had john moore had a good draw. the main goal is to control the threat of the wireless and reduce it to a minimum. and to reduce the number of gathering from people commuting and for some places we had no other choice than in the past,
6:17 pm
we asked people to abide by protocols for their own health and reduced pressure and medical staffs. we want people to abide by protocol, so this pressure can be rewarded soon as possible. only essential businesses are allowed to remain open. and some people say they need help to assure when it's closed. we have no other source of income, but there is no other choice. we should do something to curb the chain of the virus . it's tough, but there's no other choice. we need to be patient and have only the infection rate reduced. i don't think 2 weeks is enough to control the situation. i agree with the idea of closing down 100 percent, yet many other problems will be created that i don't agree with. like financial problems for people. shopkeepers still have to pay rent and their employees will receive no salary. private vehicles are banned from the roads from 9 pm until 4 am . travelling outside cities is also prohibited. the government says people found to
6:18 pm
be breaking the rules will be fined, but it's facing criticism over its handling of the pandemic. 2 officials in the health ministry have resigned and issued open letters. reza says the government has mismanaged the crisis and disputes statements made by the health minister about the country's progress in finding a vaccine. the closure of businesses is making life worse for many in what was already a tough economic situation because of u.s. sanctions. the grand bazaar here into iran would usually be packed with shoppers, but it's closed. many agree, the lockdown is needed, but livelihoods are at stake. $10000000.00 families are to receive around $4.00 a month for the next 4 months on a $40.00 loan. but many say that's not enough. the challenge the government faces is whether it can persuade people to keep abiding by restrictions when they need to work to feed their families as a break to her own. in sweden, the rise in infections is putting its known law under pressure for the 1st time.
6:19 pm
the government has rejected advice from the public health agency for race has more from home commuter rush begins in stockholm with little evidence of concern about sweden's mounting coronavirus crisis. it's just a couple of months since the decision not to impose a lockdown seemed to be working. but with a 2nd wave of the pandemic building momentum, it could be a long cold winter ahead. for the approach that has been dubbed the swedish model. a record 7240 new cases were reported on friday, with 66 more deaths taking the toll to almost 6 and a half 1000 who have been getting more and more patient. is it procedures for taking care of them there late with that in front of us and we are far behind. sweden's government is starting to impose tougher restrictions. no more than 8 people can now attend official events,
6:20 pm
while pubs and restaurants abound from serving alcohol. after 10 pm. there are new limits on visits to old people's homes. after infections again started spreading rapidly in places where thousands died in the spring or fall, the government will continue to take all necessary decisions to reduce the spread of infection. sweeden strength in this crisis however, is that every person takes their responsibility. does the juice for their fellows, and for our country? about personal responsibility has been at the heart of sweden's fight against the pandemic. but now many are questioning whether people should be forced to comply with tougher measures, including having to wear masks something that most swedes have so far shunned. that's after the royal swedish academy of sciences released a report showing that masks could prevent the spread of infection indoors. we found so far, clearly supports the fact the plant defect in diminishing of its
6:21 pm
not exactly preventing the spread. but that's in contrast to recommendations made by the public health agency on the chief epidemiology. just understand, you know, who has repeatedly said masks, can make people more careless about social distancing. not everyone has listened with masks, sales tripling its one pharmacy chain in november. even if the government does bow to pressure on masks, that could be as far as it's prepared to go. the so-called swedish model may be under some pressure, but a full lockdown is unlikely and perhaps even impossible. such a measure is guarded against by the swedish constitution that protects citizens, freedoms. even in a time of crisis. paul recent al-jazeera stock car astra zeneca says it's begun final trials of a coronavirus prevention treatment for people whose immune systems are too weak to tolerate a vaccine. the pharmaceutical giant says the untied body cocktail aims to provide up to 12 months protection and could be useful cancer patients,
6:22 pm
trials involving 1000 participants are being held in the u.k. . now the pandemic is expected to be a top priority at the g 20 summit. that's just gotten underway a short while ago. saudi arabia is hosting the virtual event, but they have been calls to boycott the meeting in protests against the kingdom's human rights records. ok. i mean, this is been an extraordinary year. the covert 1000 pandemic has been an unprecedented shark that affected the entire world within a short period of time, causing global economic and social issues. our people in economies are still suffering from the shock. however, we will do our best to overcome this crisis through international cooperation. i diplomatic editor jane space has more now from the united nations in iraq. we've seeing kings of saudi arabia by his side, his crown prince mohammed bin solomon opening the g 20,
6:23 pm
calling this an extraordinary year. there are many that believe though that the g 20 has not risen to the challenge. they look back 220082009 the last financial crisis where the g 20 really did lead world efforts. and there are many urging the g 20 to do more in 2 ways, number one. but the 20 has come up with something called the debt service suspension initiative earlier in the year to have debt relief for some of the poorer countries on earth. some say that that needs to be extended both in generation and in scope. the other big challenge is getting vaccines to people in some of the poorer countries on earth and more money, much more money apparently is needed to fund that at this stage. this is a very different g 20 from normal. in fact, what she just now, what is normally an international summit looked more like a zoom call between world leaders. it's also very truncated. normally there are
6:24 pm
dinners, there are bilateral meetings, and all of this is a little bit of a blow to the saudi hosts. so i think we're hoping to rehabilitate their reputation because certainly that has been shattered by their human rights actions with regard to the war in yemen. internal repression in saudi arabia and the murder of the journalist. and the g 20 summit being held in riyadh is again turning the spotlight on his human rights record. have been renewed calls for the release of female activists, royals academics and business leaders in saudi jails. a group of female activists are in prison for campaigning for the right to drive and to the male guardianship system. was arrested in september, 2017, and faces the death penalty has been charged over alleged ties to the muslim brotherhood and for demanding government reforms. and there are concerns for a group of saudi voyles and business leaders detained 3 years ago at a hotel in riyadh. the most recent arrests include mohammed bin nayef,
6:25 pm
the current form, a crown prince, and a nephew of king solomon. let's speak to barry about this. his executive director of freedom forward an organization working to end u.s. alliances with non democratic governments. his via skype from washington. very good to have you with us. so as we heard their g 20 of a different kind under way in riyadh and i know your organization and political leaders to boycott the summit over saudi arabia's human rights issues. but a number of leaders are nonetheless, taking part using justifications, including that this provides the opportunity for the kingdom to perhaps walk back its human rights abuses. you believe that could be the case, it could happen. well, saudi arabia's dictatorship is in a very difficult position right now. it's losing its patron in the united states, the corrupt trump presidency. and on top of that, you have hundreds of elected officials across europe and the united states who have called for a boycott of saudi arabia,
6:26 pm
as you 2400 something members of parliament in the european parliament, 45 members of the u.s. congress, members of parliament in the united kingdom the list goes on and on, and so there's a widespread tide of discontent. and rejection of saudi arabia's monarchy as a host for this event because of saudi arabia's, for if it's human rights record. but some important leaders are nonetheless attending, including germany's chancellor. anything that have an opportunity at all to raise these issues, especially when the summit is factual. absolutely, and we've heard anecdotally that many governments have been engaging both publicly and privately, because everyone is fed up. you know, the saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin sultan on has been an extraordinarily reckless and brutal leader. he has plunged the next to a neighboring country of yemen into a crude virus pandemic, through his repeated bombing and blockades of yemen, while simultaneously arresting people who've peacefully call for reforms inside
6:27 pm
saudi arabia. not to mention sending a death squad to kill jamal khashoggi in turkey. so there is a global tide of criticism. and we have heard definitively that prominent leaders, both in the business and political communities, have been both privately and publicly calling on the saudi monarchy to change its behavior. but do you think anything will happen? the crown prince has been defending his so a chip of the saudi qana, me and also touting progress in promoting women's rights. and saudi authorities have said time and time that people have to understand that change on human life says and happen all at once. there's been a little bit of progress when it comes to women's rights, but at the same time it would seem that things have gotten worse in many other aspects. how do you explain this? so this isn't a question of culture. this isn't a question of political allusion. this is a question of a leadership group in saudi arabia that uses torture and brutality to silence its opponents and to silence critics who simply want more freedom. and because of that,
6:28 pm
any claim by saudi arabia's crown crown prince, or by saudi arabia's ambassador to the us princess rima, that things take time is just nonsense. it's propaganda because all they have to do is say, we're not going to do this anymore. we're going to freely jayna, have little, we're going to stop bombing yemen. and the violence sent us right. until now many countries have been willing to, to set aside reservations about being involved with saudi arabia. are you hopeful that with, with the new administration coming into the u.s. by administration set to come in in january that things could change that we could see more pressure on saudi arabia. unlike the way the administration has dealt with a kingdom. absolutely, president like biden has a unique opportunity to put a lot of distance between himself and the trumpet, ministrations, terrible, legacy here. this is a big opportunity to dramatically change how the united states in gauges with
6:29 pm
monarchies and other oppressive governments in the middle east. whether you're talking about saudi arabia, u.a.e. egypt, or israel's prime minister, netanyahu for far too on all of them have been given a blank check by the united states government. and it's time for that posture to change. thank you so much for talking to us. barry, chief executive of freedom forward joining us there from washington. we appreciate your time and insight still ahead on al-jazeera are fighting for racial equality. anger in brazil after security guards beat a black man to death by pastor pickets next president on sunday. but many people are scared of heading to the polls and support some local wildlife gets a chance to witness a comeback race of a double olympic champion. hello,

6:34 pm
reportedly putting pressure on republican majority state legislatures to ignore the popular vote and send delegates to the electoral college who will install him as president alan fischer reports from washington. thank you very much. given to the white house was to talk prescription prices. but donald trump couldn't help talking about the election claiming pharmaceutical companies, believe news of a vaccine to help him politically big pharma, written millions of dollars of negative average against me during the campaign, which i won by the way. but, you know, find that almost 74000000 votes. we had big pharma, i guess we had the media against us. we had big tech against us. we had a lot of dishonesty against us, while joe biden spent his birthday meeting with democratic congressional leaders to talk post-election plans. donald trump was meeting republicans from michigan to the white house denying reports the president wants them to stop the state certifying
6:35 pm
biden's when there he routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country. but one democrat from michigan says, this is anything but a routine meeting. joe biden, one is good michigan, but a margin 14 times greater than down the truck. when our state 4 years ago, the president is trying to, i don't know what word to call it, is cheat his way to victory by pressuring local officials. after the meeting, the 2 republicans said it had no new information to change joe biden's victory in the state. adding the result certification process should be free from threats and intimidation. and joe biden's legal team called it an abuse. of course, it's an open attempt to intimidate election officials. georgia is the latest state to certify a joe biden victory after a manual recount of 5000000 votes. he becomes the 1st democrat to win the presidential race in the state. since 1902. there are 2 recounts underway in
6:36 pm
counties in wisconsin, but it's unlikely they will change the result there. president elect joe biden. no stands on $306.00 electoral college votes. exactly the same number. donald trump achieved 4 years ago when he claimed a landslide victory. alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house. a twitter says it will hand control of the u.s. presidential account to joe biden. when he takes office on january 20th, next year, the posters account is run by the white house. it's separate from donald trump's personal account. others including those of the 1st lady and vice president mike pence will also be transferred on inauguration day to brazil. now, where 2 security guards are being investigated for homicide over the killing of a black man outside a supermarket. one of the guards was on off duty policeman video shows the guards repeatedly hitting the 40 year old man in the face before his death. a warning that some of you may find some of the violence in our birdman news report,
6:37 pm
the stepping up outrage across brazil of the killing of a black man by security can't protest is focusing their anger at branches of the french supermarket chain costume, where the incident happened being black in brazil means you have your humanity stolen. you have all your rights stolen. you don't have the opportunity to come and go in peace. you have the security system designed to have you accused. even when you were the victim, you were the target of any bullet that circulates in the city. there is no bullet lost when it hits a black body. the killing was caught on camera with the video spreading on social media. alberto, so they're afraid to us was held by one security guard and repeatedly punched in the face by another. and what's drawn comparisons to the death of george floyd in

the u.s. . one god was seen kneeling on him moments before he died. one of the gods was an off duty police officer, and both have been arrested. brazilian subsidiary says it will push for a criminal case to hold those responsible to account. in a tweet, the state governor said when we should be celebrating progress in the fight for racial equality, instead, we're faced with excessive violence that led to the death of a black man. in south pounder, protests said the violence was a legacy from black slavery. what we saw in porto allegro is the most despicable expression of structural racism, institutional racism, and of how much brazil still inherits from the heritage of the slave countries. operating in america, as my brother, who died is not just he's part of the black family excluded from society for 500
6:39 pm
