8:00 am
iranians prepare to farewell the top nuclear scientist who was assassinated last week. we want to come all santamaria. this is the world news from al-jazeera to glenn forces that say they have shot down an ethiopian military plane a day after the prime minister declared victory in the region. also in the news u.s. president elect joe biden's, fractured his foot. hours after another contested state confirmed as the winner of the election indians farmers
8:01 am
reject the government's offer the talks and threaten to intensify their protests against new farm. so ceremony is being held for iran's top nuclear scientist who was assassinated on friday, most in fact result is due to be laid to rest with iran's leaders blaming israel for the killing and vowing to retaliate. let's start with us a big following events from teheran today mourning. what's expected today? well, we understand the body of most in fact is that they would be brought here to the most of the many, the founder of the islamic republic on saturday. his body was taken to the holy city of the holy shrine yesterday. it was taken to the holy city of rome,
8:02 am
and we understand it will be a quiet affair, partly because of the coronavirus pandemic. and partly because of security reasons, could be minister defense officials attending the and also other scientists who may not want to be seen on camera. but i think that part of it will be broadcast on state t.v. . but the questions about the security of the country continue yesterday. we had news agency that's linked to the revolutionary guard published version of events. they said that there were 3 security cause one security call went up ahead to scout the route and then there was a machine gun inside the pickup truck, the pickup truck that was remotely controlled, and that began to fire. the pickup truck was then blown up and that was the cause. and they said that there were no gunman. now, that is in stark contrast to what we heard. following the event state t.v. ran interviews with individuals. i said that they saw gunman and why we're hearing
8:03 am
these version of events is because there are questions being asked about the security services. how this was allowed to happen. what exactly happened because there's one thing in the nation with so many individuals inside the country, but there's another thing getting away with it. and the intelligence ministry is yet to issue its report. its investigation, citizens in iran have received text messages with a new phone number for the intelligence ministry hotline if they see anything or find anything suspicious. so the question of the still being as the body of most and this lead scientist in iran is being buried today. as we understand said, i'm wondering about the feeling across iran. we saw earlier. i think it was saturday, actually, when the iranian parliament met and they were chanting death to america, they were chanting death to israel. is that anger reflected across the population in iran? well,
8:04 am
there is considerable anger around what has happened now. iran is no stranger to assassinations. between 20120124 scientists were assassinated also at that time, israel was blamed. this is as a nation, has highlighted some of the political differences between the factions, hair, now yesterday, statements put forward in parliament, signed by most of the members, were they called upon the government to stop inspectors from the country. now if you look at the 2015 nuclear deal, what's pretty much, all that's left is those inspections. currently i.a.e.a. inspectors can visit iran's nuclear sites without any prior. notice now, we expect a motion to before parliament that will call in the government to stop those inspections. but also there is considerable anger conservatives in this country that feel that this idea of maximum restraint from the country or strategic
8:05 am
restraint. that means holding back and waiting for president elect joe biden to come into office in the hope that the united states will rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal and lift those sanctions. policy hasn't worked, they want action, they fear that they feel that holding back has emboldened iran's enemies and allowed for brazen attacks like this. we also heard considerable anger from foreign minister zarif and the european union issued a statement saying that all parties should show restraint and again, calling on iran to show restraint and said it's shameful that no one's condemning terrorism and yet asking for restraint. so we're still waiting to see what iran's response will be. yes, there is considerable anger and calls on the establishment here to do something in tehran. we'll talk to you again later on as we wait for this funeral ceremony to begin for iran's top nuclear scientist sasson ated on friday. his funeral due to

8:09 am
them have not yet been registered in this camp. we are told that there are already 10000 people and more are coming. the numbers have dropped during the last few days . we don't know if that's because the fighting has subsided to some extent or because the roads are blocked and that's not something that's what some of the refugees are telling us. however, the news of the fall of the capital in the hands of the federal military is not reassuring among these refugees. we ask them if they want to go back home, but they say it's not your time to return home. we don't want to go back because we so the administration of met he has slowed a lot of digging, a speaker with the help of everything and government we have made in not elected by the people. he's a soldier, he's a soldier. he's not nominated by the people. that's why we don't want to be killed

8:12 am
crannies of this area. the farm workers will contract to, to harvest crops, some 25 kilometers away from the city of my degree. the men out there were killed to suggest they attack us or careful not to attract attention. but last month the armed group killed $22.00 farmers in 2 separate attacks outside the regional capital in a degree. the president has issued a statement condemning the recent attack, but after a decade of such raids by boko haram and the ongoing ethnic violence kidnappings under robberies. many nigerians say the government is not doing enough to protect the united nations resident representative issued a statement condemning the attack saying many women had also been abducted. an estimated 36000 nigerians have been killed by book was over the past 11 years. and more than 2 and a half 1000000 have been displaced. and this month
8:13 am
went well. for many years, the nigerian government has been claiming victory of a book. but the armed group continues to attack both civilian and military targets was devastating results. this latest is one of the worst since the start of the book quote, i mean surrogacy that was launched 12 years ago and has now spread to neighboring chad cameroon, and the ship, where thousands of civilians and security personnel killed 70 priest al jazeera. but of us political news, medical news to start with in fact, us president elect joe biden, being treated for a fractured foot a day before he is to receive his 1st presidential briefing. this was the 78 year old at a clinic where he had next rain, a c.t. scan. this is just as his victory in the state of wisconsin was confirmed. there

8:15 am
history. the communications team will be staffed entirely by women. putting out a tweet pointing out too that all 6 have young children. so it will be a very different white house and a biden. it would appear certainly from a communications point of view biden's receiving the personal daily brief. this is the intelligence information given to the president supposedly every day. although many reports indicate that president trump has not been receiving the daily briefing in recent days, president trump himself continues to insist that there was fraud in the election. he's repeated these allegations without providing any form of evidence whatsoever. we'll update the headlines in a moment and then the deadly attack in afghanistan targets an army base. dozens have been killed and police in argentina raided the home and office of dr. part of an investigation into the football legend. death.

8:17 am
also likely in this time, but in the same area where the cycling past rain seems like the for mogadishu looks dry, in fact, much dryer. now in kenya an evening in uganda, throughout the rift valley, there's an increase in the likelihood of fairly heavy, right and in tanzania too. it looks fairly wet. that line, if you take it along, unless you takes us to can show us, are also wet. but maybe more welcome rain is to be seen further size, where this line is moving up into mozambique for eventually malawi. but for me out here in london, broke out 10 tactile. you special get in conversation. when you say a lie a 1000000 times, that becomes you then can create whatever narrative you want, unprompted uninterrupted, and i realized i was working for telling those evil, you know, being a part of that recreating at maria. let them eat christopher. while the death of

a gift to the incoming biden administration. so this is positive rhetoric in the community and diplomatic sources that i have talked to over the past several months . all point to that, the resolution this would incite, of course, we don't know whether or not the resolution today crisis will be solved before trump leaves office or immediately after biden takes office. so that is the question mark is, is really not if, but when the crisis between qatar and its neighbors was a manufactured crisis, it was a crisis that was based on the false allegations that and all these, all these allegations have been proved to be on true and in did it, community understands that now? so was the question is really how do you get that back in order? so this is really a matter of semantics, but i think that also because jared herschel, as we know, has such
