8:01 am
to choose pro-democracy candidates to run in september's legislative elections. millions of syria's displaced people will now have only one turkish border crossings through which to receive aid that's after several attempts to keep a 2nd crossing open failed to pass at the un security council russia backed by china had been pushing to shut down one of 2 border crossings that was still open our diplomatic editor james bays reports from u.n. headquarters in new york. a security council resolution on delivery of aid into syria is finally passed the result of the voting is as follows 12 votes in favor. no votes against. and 3 abstentions but this was not what 13 out of 15 council members wanted
8:02 am
only one border crossing bubble how one can now be used to deliver aid off to china and russia use their veto power in recent days to block other options so this resolution is not what the united states and a majority of the council fought for and it is certainly far short of what the syrian people need and desire russia's deputy ambassador was competent that the hypocrisy and double standards so far western colleagues at the unprecedented tice you were in the negotiations they were ready to jeopardise growth but the mechanism but to delete messages on you know lateral sanctions and increasing growth crossland deliveries that received this reply that if dimitrius concerned about hypocrisy he probably should not use the words that human or tonight humanitarian aid should not be politicized because that is exactly what
8:03 am
russia has done throughout this process and shamefully continues to do the bab al salam crossing the no clothes also a lifeline for about half a 1000000 children in the area according to unicef a fact seized upon by germany's ambassador these 500000 children will wake up tomorrow morning. and we'll realize that we have let them down our germany and belgium have been in charge of trying to negotiate ambassador said he was aware his chinese and russian colleagues were taking instructions from their capitals but he had this message for those in charge tell them that the german ambassador asked are those people who gave the instructions to give instructions to cut out the 8 of 500000 children if they are ready to look into the mirror tomorrow in nearly a decade of conflict in syria repeatedly starvation has been used as a weapon of war and increasingly humanitarian aid has been politicized what we've
8:04 am
seen here in the last week may well be another episode in the international community's response to the syrian crisis that history will judge badly james plays out just syria at the united nations both the knesset jackson is a u.n. representative then head of office for care international she says thousands of syrians will now be deprived of much needed aid. and the people that are in this area in northern aleppo it's one of the highest concentrations of displaced people it's over 60 percent so this is a people that have been displaced multiple times over the course of the last 9 years and they are overwhelmingly women and children so these are the very people that the u.n. was set out to. and we at this stage we do not have any aid convoys coming from damascus to this region there is a negotiation underway to start there. but the closure by the council effective
8:05 am
today means that we could be looking at least 6 months before any of these convoys actually make it up into this region because of all the bureaucracy and red tape that's required to get all the commissions for the n.g.o.s to make those deliveries and i think that is is the worrying hot that we cannot expect the other crossing the one that remains open to be a substitute because in order to get a from that crossing into northern aleppo you have to cross a front line and although we have a fragile cease fire in effect now we don't know what the situation will be in awake in a month in 6 months molly's president has responded to violent protests by promising to form a national unity government by next week and dissolve the constitutional court mali
8:06 am
has seen its worst civil unrest in years with several people killed during protests calling for the president's resignation balance reports. a solemn feeling well for protesters fake unceasing this is year old was killed on friday his family says he was shot in front of mali's national assembly. they say he was the 1st to fool people after anti-government protests turned violent going to. his mother was sick already when we broke the news to her she had a seizure the neighbors came out and we comforted her with words from islam. thousands of people gathered for friday's protests the 3rd since. they pushed their way into the grounds of parliament and the national television station then tires and barricaded roads in the capital police responded with tear gas. gunfire was heard 60 people were arrested. the protesters returned on saturday but
8:07 am
in smaller numbers. their anger is directed at president abraham. demonstrations began in june after mali's constitutional court overturned election results and evolved to include frustrations over the economy alleged corruption and insecurity from groups from repression reinforces our determination and we will continue with our watch until the end of the regime of ip k. which today is a council for mali on saturday evening case who responded in a televised address. to continue to do it privately i will continue to favor dialogue with all the active forces of the nation for the establishment of a consensual government tame composed of republican and patriotic groups and not the break is end demolishes of the country molly deserves basic than there is going to cost he promised to dissolve the court at the heart of the disputed election
8:08 am
results hold re-elections in contested areas and form a national unity government next week they're an important 1st step. and i think the idea is that the president is going to join with the opposition and have hopefully real dialogue. and and hopefully this will take place under the eyes of eco wasse the regional group that i think can actually help make sure that this moves forward smoothly. no opposition had earlier rejected kate his offer to reform the constitutional court and demanded the dissolution of parliament following friday's embraced 3 of their leaders were arrested and they had cooled his range and it's unclear where the president has his concessions will satisfy them and stop the scenes repeating. the ballasts. the united states has reported another all time daily high for new infections of covered 19 more than 66500 cases were
8:09 am
confirmed on saturday president trump has visited a hospital where he wore a mask in public for the 1st time since the start of the outbreak particle hand reports now from maryland. this is the end of that many health experts have been hoping and waiting for the u.s. president sending a message to his supporters that it's ok to wear a mask for many not doing so is a kind of political statement but before leaving for visit to this military hospital he sent a different message with his words when your hospital especially at that particular setting where you're going to do a lot of older people that in some cases just got off the operating table i think it's a great big deal where you got to have a pretty good bet but i do believe that by the time. far from the universal endorsement that might make his supporters change their habits in many of the states hardest hit masks are not mandatory and the numbers of people being tested
8:10 am
for and dying from the corona virus are climbing quickly in florida another day of record cases but despite the figures disney world reopened there with restrictions on smaller crowds masks are mandated inside the park but not in this state and the republican governor is not promising any changes soon we really believe that you know those in that 65 enough age group are at the increased risk and we're continuing to advise them to talk to let me close contact outside the home and to avoid crowds armies with as much as possible in another hard hit state louisiana the democratic governor has closed bars and mandated mess so it's become clear to me especially ash after the numbers that we saw yesterday that our current restrictions are not enough the people that we've been making to the people of louisiana to do better abiding by those restrictions and doing better by complying
8:11 am
with our mitigation measures just have not produced the results that we had hoped for and the the results that we need pretty much across the board the experts all agree the easiest. the cheapest way to make sure the virus doesn't spread out of control to make sure hospitals like the one behind me don't become overwhelmed is to wear a mask but once again the u.s. president is sending a message to his followers with his words that they don't necessarily need to follow the advice of the experts. particle al-jazeera maryland now more than $200000.00 people in hong kong have turned out to vote in primary polls held by pro-democracy parties these will decide candidates for the legislative council elections in september that vote will be the 1st since the imposition of a new security nor by beijing on thursday a hong kong government minister warned that those involved in the primary may be committing an offense under the new nor was difficult paul and joins us live now
8:12 am
from hong kong davis so an unexpectedly high turnout on day 2 of the primaries tell us what's been happening. absolutely despite the fact that the government in seems to have tried to dissuade people certain government officials had said that this could even violate that national security law these primaries people have been turning out in large numbers their cues across 250 booths across the city so it seems like this movement is still going and people are defying whatever fear or intimidation that is perceived at the moment but talk more about this i'm here with joshua wong he said democracy activist and also a candidate in these elections he is well known in both locally and in a to national circles for fight for democracy for hong kong joshua good to have you here with us firstly joshua i need to ask you it's been a really interesting impressive turnout it seems but the question is you are running for this but how valid will these results be particularly you are currently
8:13 am
facing charges the you have been spent time in jail before do we are you concerned that even if you do well you could be disqualified if the race of think this qualifies being censored out from a in the official election we still realise that the primary election is important and every bolt conk to show up with this content of beijing and with no trust to the company's reach even after the implementation of the national security law so today is the primary election day it's also the 1st time for you. what's right after the law is implemented to home call and it's time for us to fight back more than 250000 people come out the world which is rated impressive and we hope to finally have almost half a 1000000 people come out to have the protest vote and let the world to know that we should not to kowtow to china absolutely but there are concerns now that given the fact that this national security law doesn't seem to dampen your movement could this backfire and could instead the authorities even crack down harder or try to
8:14 am
restrict your activities and the democratic camp to these with the police try to crack down on the primary election they try to have the political center ship and to stop the campaign it's just struck them all and the whole column has come out to vote so when days suppression will have more continue fight. so the other issues even if the democratic camp which wins more the majority of the legislative council seats in september for the elections is there any real guarantee that they will be able to be effective within the government given the way we've seen things have gone been going if beijing sheers not to cancel the election on early september i'm still of the news that we can't take much royalty in the legislative council but once beijing used the national security law should stop the election or even do not recognize to resell it off the election it would just shut them all and will backfire so now it's time to encourage the global community to put hong kong election under the global spotlight when beijing hope to
8:15 am
override the election results and hope that this qualified candidate we need to realize that the world is watching you have been tireless in your campaigning for democracy in hong kong but as looking in from the outside it almost seems like a losing battle so why do you keep continuing despite the fact each time you move forward it seems to have gone one step back that more restrictions fight for democracy in such uphill battle just like the battle of they fit fiscal life sometimes we might feel it difficult and also under pressure but the fret can't defeat us make us even stronger determination and just like 100000 people come out of what was it just already a lot of age you know that even they have to turn to hong kong to do an exchange on what about we've feels it and we never call it home and we never surrender. now bringing back to today and this impressive turnout we've seen why do you think that people are not concerned about the national security law right now and why are you not concerned evil constantly a lot about elections it's real including me and that's also the reason why we come
8:16 am
out to vote some of my friends or some of the elderly's told me that all regionally feel weeks ago 'd that no plan to come out to vote but because of the suppression from beijing they realized it was really a critical primary election in the western world by just about the policy platform or the quality of candidate by primary election and haul it out a protest vote to beijing and realistically speaking given their reaction we've seen from the government. there are many questions about how the government is going to view this joshua thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us taking taking the time to talk to us on this very important day for you and the democratic democratic camp that's just how long there are democrats the activists in hong kong and has lobbied hard in the international community to highlights hong kong issues and fight for democracy back to you daryn all right a difficult problem there live for us in hong kong thank you for let's come here and i'll just say there including a presidential runoff in poland that could shake up its politics and affect ties with neighbors. and

several people were killed during protests calling for his resignation. and the united states reported another daily high for a new infections of cope with 19 more than 66 and a half 1000 cases were confirmed on saturday it comes as president trump has won a mosque in public for the 1st time. puerto ricans are demanding the removal of all symbols commemorating colonialism protest as wearing indigenous clothes demanded a statue of christopher columbus beat taken down along with memorials they want to rename city squares and streets puerto rico is one of many places witnessing movements to descend on the past people in poland are voting in a presidential election the runoff that could shake up its politics and affect relations with neighbors the office is largely ceremonial but the president can veto parliamentary legislation some of the a get reports. this is a stark choice for voters in poland one which will shape its identity in europe and
8:21 am
the rest of the world over the rio mars this is the incumbent crowd pleaser and trade with poland's president since 2015 an independent who has the support of the ruling law and justice party is seen as a stalwart of the government's message of nationalism and conservatism his backing of only traditional families and opposition to gay marriage adoption has put him at all those with poles and others in the e.u. who fear he's taking them backwards but his populist agenda has won over many voters i think. he is a good candidate because he's a tried and true man for 5 years we know what he has done and who years and i think will be the same as in the previous term of office. under total movie that andrea do what he says he tries to carry out even if not everything can be realized at a given time he says he'll do it and he does it i trust him as
8:22 am
a politician and that's the president i want my andrea do to win the opposition believe they have everything to hope for and ruffle trust of ski the male of warsaw is regarded by many as liberal tolerant outward looking and being more closely aligned with the rest of the european union and independent of the judiciary. it's ask you when this is a change itself happening here will be he will not he's not a part of the current government he thought part of the current ruling party so the situation itself having just parliaments rule. his party by the rule of law and justice party and the president from the other side of the political spectrum will bring a sense of dialogue into this country again but lack of consensus and unity among poles was so polarized about how they want poland to be seen has been demonstrated by this election. if you look at the votes of both who are in the retirement age by
8:23 am
overwhelmingly vote for. these but if you look at the youngest voters very mostly vote for. politicians so it seems that in the next years justice would have or would need to change politics because otherwise we would lose support this is being seen as one of the most important elections since the fall of communism in 1989 the result of which is likely to see poland loosen all tighten its ties with its neighbors. thousands of israelis are protested in tel aviv angry at the government's handling of the economic crisis caused by the pandemic demonstrators say aid packages have been delayed and insufficient israel reimposed type restrictions early this week after the number of cases increased our force that has more from western. it's an issue of what they say is not enough government support to the people hit worst by the economic fallout of the pandemic the self-employed
