so thin so mon that was so sick you had to be airlifted to a hospital in pain and that's just one family out of thousands of people who need help wasn't beach is really one of the most poorest countries in the world this cycling hasn't made things any easier the concerned aid workers and the government is to because many people as possible who need help who may be stranded out there as president all trumps nominee for the federal reserve house withdrawn his nomination stephen moore has been criticized for sexist comments and his positions on interest rates more a conservative commentator was to fill one of two vacant positions at the u.s. central bank an empty chair has represented the u.s. attorney general has refused to testify at a congressional hearing about the miller report bill barr wanted to avoid lawyers questioning him about russian collusion and donald trump's election been threatened with contempt by the house of representatives for refusing to answer questions bar has cleared the president of collusion about the democratic party wants to see the full uncensored version of the report to go hey nice more from washington d.c.
2:01 am
. a lot of political theater today as the house democrats called for a congressional committee hearing and they basically talked to an empty chair the u.s. attorney general william barr refusing to show up to testify he said he had a problem with the process that they wanted to take which was basically to have members of congress ask questions but allow one of the committee attorneys to sort of ask those follow up so would have made it a much tougher day of testimony for william barr there's a disagreement between the democrats in the republicans on the committee and in the white house over whether that sort of testimony in that sort of committee hearing would in fact be proper history will judge as to how we face this challenge we will all be held accountable in one way or the other and if he does not provide this committee with the information it demands the respect it deserves the bars a moment of accountability come soon enough and i think what we're seeing from chairman adler is that he's incapable of holding power if he and his committee are
2:02 am
capable of actually asking the attorney general questions themselves and need to staff that out it seems like a pretty pathetic moment for the chairman of that committee and look we lost confidence in jerry nadler a long time ago but it's surprising that it find out that he's actually lost confidence in himself and his capability to do his job he can't and he's not capable of asking the attorney general questions maybe he should step down or resign and allow somebody else said. this is high stakes for william barr because members of congress are already saying that he lied to congress lying to congress is a crime and it could get you sent to prison what they're arguing here is that when muller gave bar his summary bar then then just a couple days later put out a four page summary of what he thinks the report said he was asked about this in congressional testimony before the senate under oath and they said what are all these reports that muller was upset and are said i have no idea what you're talking about well it turns out that robert mueller the special counsel had sent
2:03 am
a letter before that. or saying exactly that he was upset with the way barr was handling the special counsel's probe was that a lie to congress well house speaker nancy pelosi has come out and said that he lied to congress and it's a crime but you want to see how the committees decide to proceed next up though the big testimony we're waiting to see is if the democrats can get robert muller the former special counsel before them they say they want to hear directly from the man who invested the gator the president as whether the president of the united states committed crimes so head on al-jazeera and began an opposition m.p. bobby wine is freed on bail after being arrested on charges he says were made to silence her multiple in saudi arabia appears to be wielding on u.s. foreign policy as the chopper ministration tightens its iran sanctions.

2:10 am
social media and mobile money task that had been introduced to people asking why is he being charged now for something that happened last year what also stands out from this is how the case was hard he was not physically present in the courtroom he followed proceedings of a video link from the prison where he was being held this is a fairly new system that has been introduced by the judiciary official they it's more effective they also think going to cut down costs of physically bringing it to court but then some of the supporters people have been talking to here a thing that the reason why it's happening with bobby wine is because the has the government does not want too many people gathering to wait for him to appear in court there is a lot of fear he's been garnering a lot of crowds everywhere he goes to perhaps people i think the government is afraid of that the situation in the political situation in the country i've talked

conversations the president said conversations with these countries and there they have committed to making sure that there is a sufficient supply in the markets. confirmation of saudi coordination came just days after president trump signaled a major policy reversal in libya in an obvious not to riyadh expressing u.s. support for the saudi backed warlord fighting the internationally recognized government in tripoli the announcement makes clear that saudi arabia is now a fulcrum of the united states foreign policy this despite the fact that congress has held saudi arabia responsible for the murder of the journalist jamal khashoggi as well as for the deaths in the ongoing war in yemen even senior republican leaders have said until these situations are resolved responsibility for the murder of khashoggi is assigned it simply cannot be business as usual the white house

casters are also warning people in low lying bangladesh will keep an eye on that for you or so the headlines keep it on al-jazeera inside story is next. not so fast champion run a pass the so many a is ordered to take drugs to lower her testosterone if she wants to keep competing is the decision fat or is it needed to ensure a level playing field in the sport this isn't.
2:22 am
hello welcome to the program on the wrong custis ammonia is an inspiration to many women around the world but the south african olympic and world champion athletes is accused of having an unfair advantage because her body produces more male sex hormones than most females to stay in the race she's going to have to change a life she's lost a legal challenge against the governing body of world athletics which issued a new rule forcing her to take drugs to lower testosterone levels supporters say that ensures fake competition critics argue that so many a is unfairly targeted because the rule only applies to middle distance athletes like up the court of arbitration for sport admits the regulation is discriminatory but say it's necessary the president of the international association of athletics federations praised the decision sebastian coe is here in doha for friday's diamond league event where so many a is due to compete. i think this is pretty straightforward and
2:23 am
it's very straightforward for any international federation in sport athletics has to classifications it has age it has gender we are fiercely protective about both and i'm really grateful that the court of arbitration has not held that principle so many years lawyers and the south african of let its governing body are considering an appeal and we are so it was extremely disappointed in the outcome because it's not correct to have a law which clothes art in a way that nobody knows yet into a doze out and you can't have the person who makes the law also be the person implementing the law and deciding how it blows out so that is not the way we see fairness so what exactly is her condition it's called a hyper androgen ism which causes her body to produce more of the male sex hormone testosterone the most women between five and ten percent of females are thought to
2:24 am
be affected the un says that up to one point seven percent of babies worldwide are into sex meaning they don't fit typical definitions of male and female testosterone boosts the amount of red blood cells increases of muscle mass and strength doctors are divided on how much improves an athlete's performance. i. let's bring in our panel joining us from london is sylvia account but essie senior lecturer in bioethics and society at king's college london from high wycombe on skype john breaux a professor of applied sports science at buckinghamshire new university and also on skype from oxford students have a lesson director of the oxford euro center for practical ethics at the university of oxford welcome all to the program i would like to start with you dr sylvia so many was born a woman it's not her fault that she has this imbalance of testosterone surely
2:25 am
should she should be allowed to compete it's not an unfair advantage is it. hugh really touched an important point because a discussion that hinges on whether an advantage is unfair or not and we just heard the boss down because the case is straightforward pretty straightforward and actually is anything by straightforward because it's quite complex we need to all distinguish whether they are bonded derive from that is unfair or not and this is not what the courts for arbitration for sport as done the courts for arbitration for sport as requested that i that been asked to investigate to do it is search on levels of testosterone and performance advantage and they come up with some results which by the way i've been demonstrated by several team include in my team to not be replicable and this is been highlighted in the verdict of the courts that i've
2:26 am
titian for sport where they know it of the difficulty are reliant on a concrete advantage by the do rely on necessary ethical advantage between have a soft festus around and performance how have the pint i've been making as a scholar working in attics and sport and as a former middle distance as i'm not the professional one is that these advantages not unfair let me bring in. just right now from high wycombe it's not unfair says dr sylvia cumbrous so she should be allowed to compete in so he's always out of the whole problem with this case and there's never been love with the song on the call until. it was clear out of the. situation. they were. serious maybe it was short he believes it was and you know it was one of italy was so you. need to get
2:27 am
into some of the let's remind ourselves it's just leaving us to see. ammonia is who with all of these will fema who recommended recognition i have is that there to sponsor who you choose to not just because no one individual i can see why innocence seems that way it is so very grey areas the extent to which the levels of testosterone who performs i think we have to bear in mind that you said testosterone was a growth coral causes as you said of the outset. of forces so as we cruise muscles muscles and muscle evokes to strengthen our will we don't lose because it is quite arbitrary is the exact cut off point for forward starts and where it stops nothing particularly we've been lucky it's where we know there are variations in the homeowner who's on a monthly basis you need where he was a problem for example it is something that again is the cuatro she also is going to
2:28 am
be very very difficult so more incidents of police and which is because i want point that you made about that so many not being allowed to compete because she will be allowed to compete but only she and other outlets would sue commissions can demonstrate the test of storms are sort of the who's lower i was speaking on so her concede the last night as i was asked the next step for her should be i genuinely think that she now is such a great athlete that she has the ability and hopefully the desire to carry on with her training carry on doing what she has done so well for so many years and that in some way to prove the doubters won by showing that she can still win or will her big stage so we go medals and break world records even with a consumer level because she may also decide on our own seats as was the appeal but i believe she's a great runner a great athlete and we're in a sense people now even with a slightly lower testosterone but what we're asking her to do and other athletes in
2:29 am
her position to do. is to take performance reducing drugs not performance enhancing drugs about and from the sport completely so this seems to be an ethical question let's bring in julian savulescu in oxford one of the what's the morality of all of this we're actually in effect somebody at the top of the game to not be at the top of their game is that what we're doing well as exactly what sylvia correctly pointed out is whether this level of testosterone represents an unfair advantage and if it does what you should do about it. so the first question i completely agree with that the science hasn't established the degree to which are elevated testosterone level provides that with an unfair advantage you've got to remember that that she probably has a condition which means the receptors protest auster are don't work properly we
2:30 am
don't know what a normal level of testosterone would be for her we don't know how her body functions or indeed her bright functions this level of testosterone so even if you reduce the performance by reducing in testosterone it could be due to a fix on her brine it could be due to the side effects of the drugs it could be due to a whole bunch of different factors unless you can give a really accurate story about what what part of logic cool features were in taught him to do and what we're not and how testosterone works in a complex situation like this you shouldn't be ruining somebodies career a lot which brings me to the second point that even if you thought there might be some significant advantage. this woman has been brought up under a parent's set of rules she's trying to has been treated as a woman she's been allowed to compete and it shines those rules midway through her career denies her the right to work and the right to leave the fictive really
2:31 am
a much better solution would have been to introduce roe. that affected athletes in the future are for example when they're about to start their career not midway through their career i started to run brand molecules but the problem all together is this sort of cool little hormonal playing field which. has in the i double i want to establish isn't really a level playing field because you don't know the response of the receptors to testosterone you don't know the complex biology of the individual athletes national or simply hasn't been worked out so i think it's a very severe let me bring you let me bring you in here dr sylvia the science seems to be problematic so why not julian savulescu said allow her to compete whilst you figure out the science yes definitely that could have been an option indeed i mean i must say when i saw was this packed in like calm everybody else out there very
2:32 am
did yesterday and i was disappointed but not surprised and i think it's important to say this is such a complex and not straightforward issue is that to understand yes it is very good one is to go back a few years and i understand due to the case i did it on was an indian sprinter also targeted by the farmer put under as an ism regulation which were put in place in two thousand and eleven in response to caster semenya skase so you have a case that goes back ten years so you had caster semenya at the billion where temperature two thousand and nine but she was not able to appeal to say i've had hundreds of his own regulations that required her to lower the tests around other that sense to do to. a court for arbitration or sports at a collection where suspended in time to fifteen on grounds that there was not enough evidence about the correlation how have as i had knotted in the twenty
2:33 am
fifteen the grounds on which is a good lesson where suspend it was a wrong. let me splaying why cofer but additional for support in twenty fifteen wrote very clearly that they believe that i that i have add reasons to have these regulations that this is a glacial were necessary this is a cause yes and this is language about necessary discrimination but in twenty fifteen cassel ruled that it was not enough evidence about a proportionality also regulation now is that i that the laugh was given two years to do this additional research which as i've submitted it was most is a new regulation which started at the district a set of events from the four hundred meter to the model are based on is a study published in the british journal sports magazine in twenty seventeen weeks but then defied this. event as events in which women with a high level of testosterone had higher performance advantage to how have they
2:34 am
decided it has also had not been replicated and actually as i was saying with some were frankly not set on the school of economic and are not on spinner but on court as an investor of brighton and spain burgas university we've been able to show that the results cannot get implicated so why these five events i think it's fair to say the caste system as been targeted now i would be curious to see if gustus amenas us competing in a different event will say i dub it after regulation change sadly laugh as cause that aggression live in document cast yesterday is a verdict that buys to defer is up location i was at it relation on grounds that is of the difficulty i rely on concrete evidence of it not of i have or i'd have cried to ronnie but sad that never did take an opposite advise to defer his application as a regulation they give an athlete's one week one week to lower their test as i don't have it in order to compete i'm a eight so you're saying it's very unfair that you bring in john breaux ahead this
2:35 am
is sport sport is supposed to be fair the. regulations these rulings are designed for a level playing field and it's designed on age and on sex. is it time to take a real hard look at that and to try and come up with a different definition or is it simply we've got to draw the line in the sand somewhere. and think we have to must think will rule it now look at the whole integrity of all the water people will all be watching the spall many millions of pounds is invested in through casting rights through sponsorship deals and so on and i think i am bitterly silent and sorry for athletes such as custer so many who are located in the grease on one with a little carry on competing at the same time a lot of things i don't agree with comatose occasional consumer or so is coming from in the sense we do have to create in the bargain bin laden's fema who don't
2:36 am
have the will we high levels of testosterone to feel they can excel competes in the sunni well in favor of sport we only have to look over the last twenty or thirty years of the way in which very rightly the last fall has grown and that we have much greater levels of us in asia much greater levels of sponsorship hospital as a couple which and that is absolutely to be welcomed i think we also need to bear in mind that we should be cussed and again we come back to this inevitably it seems as if it's so that is targeting her as an individual it is as as a set of values of the all athletes one hundred isn't it is also to some extent been clouded with another barrett who is the one transgender athletes going to kill males go through sexually or in stations such transitions become females and computers females are part of the reason why the other way or another people looking at testosterone levels is a way to gain level own groups ensure that when an athlete does go through sexual
2:37 am
reallocations transition then they have a testosterone level the least puts them in a castle level where a can compete own style team up it's. extremely difficult area and a surly one with the problem we know. but i do believe we have to protect the integrity is all the same time so here's what the second is the whole lot of research needs it is the work of exactly a couple of these very minute that starts trying in a different way when it's measured is bound by the agency because it forms in handsome effects so that we know that forms of variance on testosterone itself will go in hospitals but we're not quite clear on his exactly what those levels are so this is in a sense of couture so it would be nice to see more work. done since it really get just right and it never spews situation it's not going to be we are going to be
2:38 am
some windows and some lose nothing what we have to do is have the starts of discussions in a very level headed pragmatic way to come up with the best solution for both individuals and supporters already for society as well journey and brings up a very interesting point there i just want to ask you a very direct question only now in a position where we're trying to. regulate the human body where we're trying to legislate the human body and what it's capable of doing and surely that's bad for the sport this is naturally occurring and caster so many or perhaps that's recurring other people it just means that they can compete at that level. you know i think that's exactly the point the it's inconsistent with the logic of sport as it currently stands that your main to be tasting and individuals natural potential but you're trying to reduce the natural potential with testosterone not lowering drugs you have to remember that the definition of a woman used to be until the ninety's having to excrete his arms if that had
2:39 am
continued to be the definition he has to say maybe it wouldn't have been allowed to compete because she probably has a condition where she has a y. chromosome and edge an insensitivity now she didn't make the decision to change that definition it was my by the sporting with our toes and sorrow i move to an anatomical definition of what it is to be a woman when she conforms to anatomically she's a woman she has a female appearance even though she might having to also histories and dies of producing testosterone so they chose to move to a different definition of woman and within that definition she's completely natural that's not her decision she's conformed to the rules i completely agree we have to have a set of rules but they'll always be great crisis and you shouldn't be disadvantaging people who have conformed to the rules and you decide to chimes the midwife through
2:40 am
it's to point to recognise that this decision doesn't apply to all into six conditions it applies to only those people with a white chromosomes who also have high levels of testosterone but there are other women and other conditions you need to six that produce high levels of testosterone that are not covered by this judgement so she is being discriminated against very clearly even amounts into sex athletes i was reading a very interesting article so if you want to bring you in his very interesting article that suggested that the people running sport overwhelmingly male overwhelmingly white and overwhelmingly over the age of sixty so that definition of what is a man what is a woman is very set in stone of a little old fashioned do you think that has anything to do that. that this has definitely something to do is it and fat already in twenty two hours with my car
2:41 am
stanford university wrote an article for his american journal of bioethics where we were targeting the hyper androgynous regulation and we pointed out i was there were different levels of unfairness is a regulation including the way they were being drafted and implemented and looking at the kind of people that were making this decision i think it's really important to distinguish the pint of whether is this our banter is unfair or not back to twenty fifteen in order to understand today's case could have ruled in a different way indeed i'm really curious to read one hundred sixty pages of the entire very good when they are published because it says that it was dropped by majority so i understand this as there was a minority that didn't agree with their oil it was a rule in what this means is that cost did not engage with the question is an
2:42 am
