9:00 pm
these are the 3 in-depth storytelling around the biggest issues. but you should do it again. 1, 000 s. . this is a news hour on al-jazeera, fully back to go live from our world headquarters in doha, coming up. the u.s. secretary of state, a whole separate talks with the afghan government and the taliban just hours after 8 people were killed in an ice on the town. on kabul, iran shuts most businesses and towns down on travel as it struggles to contain a cold wave. 19 surge, also this hour, hundreds of migrants are transferred to a military site in spain's canary islands. as a local government is overwhelmed by
9:01 pm
a surge. you know, rival those he says freedom. all he said during the ugandan presidential candidate bobby wine says he won't be intimidated by a government crackdown that's killed dozens of protesters and eyeing the rise in sea levels. a new u.s. european satellite blasts off to monitor one of the most challenging effects of global warming. and sport counting down to the middle east's 1st football world cup . it's exactly serious and 2022 kicks off. organizers said, preparations have been largely unaffected by the coronavirus the at thank you for joining us. i source says it's behind a rocket attacks in afghanistan's capital that have killed at least 8 people. the
9:02 pm
interior ministry says dozens more have been injured. the attack came hours before the u.s. secretary of state, michael held talks with afghan government and taliban. the go. she does in qatar, capital doha. earlier this week, the pentagon said it would. so uncool about 2000 troops out of afghanistan 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.
9:03 pm
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, 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 a trend where greater violence in the suits is mainly assassinations. martin, it's all caught on even at a time of trouble and so that they won't be launching attacks. and sometimes
9:04 pm
i, i so has been behind recent attacks in the capital gunmen stormed university 3 weeks ago. at least 22 people were killed. and 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 say of kabul and al jazeera 70 deck as more on michael bales, tall. so the afghan government and taliban negotiators here in my pompei are wrapped up saturday with meeting the taliban delegation, involved into afghan talks. see it met an hour earlier with the afghan government delegation. these are talks that were integrated back in september. the u.s. secretary of state where he was here for that as well, but it's been
9:05 pm
a difficult process moving forward. the old still stuck on the technicalities of what kind of islamic law will govern the govern the framework of these tools. i think the message certainly for my pompei will be that they are keen to get the 2 sides to sit down to really get to the difficult issues when it comes to a long lasting cease fire and a power sharing agreement between the 2 sides. of course you also met the pats are, is it me or he had a lunch with him and also met with the deputy prime minister to be discussed issues like iran. this is a ministration that's been very much an anti iran in a country as a country that has very good relations with iran. it's also one of the issues when it comes to the gulf, blockade the blockade in countries demanding that qatar cuts ties with iran, something they have so far, refused to do. this is also an administration that has said it wanted to perhaps get some movement on the lifting of the blockade that certainly at the moment hasn't happened, not to the full extent anyway. and of course, also in a way of course, and u.s.
9:06 pm
president donald trump not having conceded defeat but patters. amir has already called the president joe biden, to congratulate him on his way. now the world news, united nations says a full scale humanitarian crisis is unfolding in northern ethiopia. the u.n. has called on warring sides to halt fighting immediately. so more aid can be delivered and refugee safe zones can be set up. the government's launched an offensive 2 weeks ago on the great people's liberation front. all sides have accused each other of killing civilians in airstrikes and in discriminates attacks . meanwhile, those who fled across the border into sudan are afraid of going hungry and say they're desperate for help him. and you know, when we came here, we didn't find any services we in the period 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 i dream of another of those people just want to eat and they say we
9:07 pm
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 . hubert morgan has this update from a camp on sudan's border with ethiopia. 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 the course of a state which is neighboring state and were brought here by the thousands 1000 at least transported every day. 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 ethiopia into sudan, and then to get to one day crossing a river. and then coming here. so they say that they need medical access or medical health care access. something obviously is lacking because of the number of people
9:08 pm
who are at the camps. they say that yes, there is a health facility. i mean, 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 stations to provide more. now, 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 a short time as a world struggles to contain the corona virus pandemic government urging people not to travel. the centers for disease control in the u.s. has warned americans to stay at home over the thanksgiving holiday. but the aaa travel insurance agencies estimating more than 15000000. people will travel in the coming week. and that's only a 10 percent drop compared to last year. canada's largest city toronto is going back into the mall, down at the prime minister says a normal holiday is out of the question. in order to get through this winter
9:09 pm
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. poland's prime minister is also urging families to cancel travel plans, schools, bars, restaurants, and theatres will remain closed until after christmas. singapore and hong kong are postponing the launch of their quarantine free travel bubble after a spike in infections in hong kong. in iran, meanwhile, while the country side mean to contain a 3rd wave of infections, authorities are closing most businesses and clamping down on travel between major cities to try and slow the spread. assad big has a report from tehran,
9:10 pm
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 jam more door draw. the main goal is to control it out of the wires 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, we asked people to abide by protocols for their own health and reduced pressure on medical staffs. we want people to abide by protocol, so this pressure can be removed as 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,
9:11 pm
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. you 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 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
9:12 pm
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 lock down 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. china is testing 3000000 people for covert 19 in the northern city of tianjin. it follows the discovery of 9 locally transmitted cases. the government has sealed off one residential area, hospital and kinda gone. 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 antibiotic cocktail and so provide up
9:13 pm
to 12 months protection and could be useful cancer patients trials involving $1000.00 participants are being held in the u.k. . there's lots more ahead on this news hour, including this year's g. . 20 summit is taking place a very chilly, but that hasn't stopped it from generating controversy under lockdown and out of hope. the warning from mental health experts in the u.k. about the impact of the pandemic on patients. in sports argentina's rugby team aims for another win after their historic triumph over new zealand. and is here with that story. it's the corner virus spun. demick is expected to be a top priority at the g. summit that's underway. saudi arabia is hosting the virtual event, but they have been called to boycott the meeting in protest at the kingdom's human rights records. this is been an
9:14 pm
extraordinary year. the cold in 1000 pandemic has been an unprecedented shock that affected the entire world within a short period of time. question global economic and social issues, or people in economies are still suffering from the shock. however, we will do our best to overcome this crisis through international cooperation. our diplomatic editor james space has more from the united nations in new york. we've seeing kings of saudi arabia by his side, his crown prince mohammed bin some, an opening, the g. 20 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
9:15 pm
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 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, john walsh, show g's. well, the g 20 summit being held in riyadh is again turning the spotlight on sunday.
9:16 pm
arabia's human rights record. they've 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 an end to the male guardianship system. muslim scholar 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 their concerns for a group of saudi royals. and business leaders detained 3 years ago at a hotel in riyadh. the most recent arrests include mohammed bin nayef, the former crown prince, and a nephew of king solomon. barry is executive director of freedom, ford an organization working to end u.s. alliances with non-democratic governments. he says crown prince mohammed bin salman has been especially reckless. saudi arabia's dictatorship is in a very difficult position right now. it's losing its patron in the united states,
9:17 pm
the corrupt trump presidency. and on top of that, you have hundreds of elected officials across europe in the united states, who've called for a boycott of saudi arabia's g. 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. 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 solomon and has been an extraordinarily reckless and brutal leader. he has plunged the next door neighbor, a country of yemen, into a coronavirus pandemic, through his repeated bombing and blockades of yemen, while simultaneously arresting people who have peacefully call for reforms inside
9:18 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. spain is mounting a diplomatic offensive in africa, sending senior ministers to morocco and senegal, following a record surge in refugees and migrants reaching the canary islands by sea. hundreds have been transferred to a makeshift camp on a military side with the local government. overwhelmed, kalik has more it's the tourist season on spain's canary islands. but despite the coronavirus pandemic and the lack of visitors, these apartments and hotels haven't been left empty. they're being used to house a growing number of migrants arriving in record numbers from africa. bishop version of there is where the problem is,
9:19 pm
was not good for her. so we address it in there just as we're going to also the best. we have the family, the government forgot to let us all of africa is slipping. a bit. tell us at least $18000.00 people have landed on the shores this year alone, more than half of that in just the past month. and that's put a strain on government facilities and left thousands stranded in the main port without basic services. it's also angered local authorities, and many of the island's residents who've criticized the government's slow response was this people see not being here, but what can we do? the government says it's urgently setting up makeshift camps on military sites in a single page. almost about we think that by the end of this year, we will have temporary camps to house $7000.00 migrants set up. this is the 1st
9:20 pm
solution. it blames the increase in arrivals on e.u. agreements with turkey, libya and morocco that have stopped many migrants using established routes. the interior minister has held talks with his moroccan counterpart and the for minister is to meet u.n. officials ahead of a visit to send a go that's become one of the main points of departure for those willing to risk a perilous journey in the hope of a new life on european sure's car leg al-jazeera. while let's take a look now at the scale of the problem, more than $18000.00 refugees and migrants have reached the canary island so far this year. that's 10 times as many arrivals as a previous year. half of that number about 9000 people have arrived in the past month, around 5 and a half. 1000 have been put in hotels and toys apartments that are empty because of the coronavirus pandemic. spain's government says another 7000 will be placed in
9:21 pm
temporary reception centers to be built in the next few weeks. they speak to catherine wallowed about this. she is the director of the european council on refugees. an exxon cheese fries from brussels. thank you very much for being with us. let's try to understand the problem 1st. the north atlantic route had been largely abandoned in the last few years because of its danger. why is this route now getting busy? again? why? why are people risking everything to get on unsafe boats in the north atlantic? i would say this to keep reasons. one is the number of people who are, of course, at the displaced global a, which is at record levels around 80000000. people have been forced to leave their homes and that continues to increase year by year. secondly, as your correspondent has already mentioned, are those routes have been closed. so people are now forced to take the more dangerous route. we believe there are many people within those arriving in spain,
9:22 pm
who are refugees who are being forced to flee with no turnitin except to arrive via the atlantic route. more than 18000 people have a 2nd area insists here, and we've heard that refugee reception sent is for what the situation on the ground, what sort of conditions are they faced with, and what has a spanish government doing done to improve the situation? i think we need to say 1st of all, even though the numbers have increased, the situation is manager. 18000 people sounds like a mark that spain is a country of 49000000, people, and europe as a whole has a population of 500000000 and it is the richest continent in the world. so we reversed a little called getting to grips with the situation and managing it, which is eminently feasible. the un and the i.o.m. on a recent visit made exactly the same point. and if we look at our displacement situations, for instance, the conflict in ethiopia is costing around $200000.00,
9:23 pm
people to flee to neighboring cigars. and so nonetheless, the situation on the canary islands is it's highly problematic. there are 2 elements that concern us. most of all 1st access to reception to decent reception conditions. this is an obligation under a new law. so spain should be providing people who arrived with adequate human, humane conditions. there we would say there should be urgent documentation of people to the mainland because so has no obligation to keep people in the canary islands. and in particular, most vulnerable as a matter of priority should be transferred. and that includes the 1600 unaccompanied children who are there. the 2nd concern is access to assign procedures. everybody has the right to access an access in the soil and procedure to hear their case heard. as we say,
9:24 pm
there are likely to be that many refugees amongst those rioting ranks of the countries of origin. right, right now the spanish seem to want to tackle the problem at the origin. they've sent a delegation to senegal and morocco. i mean, what do you make of that? can that achieve anything? what else can spain do to try and mitigate? you know, the, this crisis in the amount of people living on the islands. ok, we'll stay in house access to the support that it needs from the european union union as a whole, those motives, the funding available. there's also support from the cities, and there's also active civil society organizations in spain, including members of our network, a network event, you know, the red cross. so they are the council on assigned refugees who are ready to assist . so therefore, it is need to turn to those that support and then follow their obligations
9:25 pm
under a new asylum law, which means making sure that people have access to that sign. and procedure have access to legal assistance and are able to hear their claims before spain starts talking about courting people and trying to return them. because this creates the risk of full breach of the principle of moer a formal, under international refugee law. where people would be rich, people are returned, where there is a risk that their lives may be at risk. and given the people who are leaving because they flee persecution, they both flee violence. there needs to be proper, a hero. and the reception situation can be best resolved by yes, providing reception centers in the canary islands, but also through the transfer to the mainland where there is a why, despite a reception center is available. thank you so much for talking to us about this
9:26 pm
catherine. well, it director of the european council on refugees in exile, stunning us there from brussels. we appreciate your time. europe's safety regulators expected to allow boeing 737 max jets to return to the skies. in january this week, u.s. regulators cleared the plane for flights. the 737 max was bound to 2 crashes in indonesia and linked to a faulty anti stall system. biggest market, china is yet to allow the aircraft back into service. the leader of tibet self declared government in exile has visited the white house for the 1st time in 6 decades. the us government invited nobs to meet with its newly appointed coordinator for tibetan aisha's. the move could further strain ties between the us and china, which sees tibet in 1950, in what it calls a peaceful liberation. but critics say, amount to cultural genocide. 2 hong kong movies critical of china's
