director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the doha institute he says the recent attack in saudi arabia may complicate the terror designation review. he doesn't mention a version he was framed at the house he's being a foreign terrorist organization based on their attacks on saudi arabia and if the news is correct that we had to have today that they're poor and you had attack it would make it much more difficult for the buy in a decision to do this this ignition however does ignition on its own is unlikely to help and this is what we've learned from many of the civil conflicts the designation will not help the enemies inside yemen as much as the saudis and their relationship with the enemy we. already the last couple of days since it's come into force has caused a major computer in among international agencies private companies who are
7:12 pm
supplying food to yemen shipping companies who are trying to carry that put into yemen a lot of them are reluctant to engage in yemen not because they don't want to or the no need for their help but the does ignition and it's blankets form at the moment without much detail and makes it. very difficult for them to engage and a high risk area for them to to engage so lazy is to withdraw and ultimately i think the public will pay the price and as you know yemen is already one of the worst human who attend that disasters and is likely to get worse. without further details on how this does initially going to work i think the situation worse. still ahead on al-jazeera why more palestinians are turning to traditional justice systems to protect themselves and their families. a powerful sights on heads an area of mozambique that still recovering from the effects of

7:14 pm
in the immediate future and that's true for most i'm a lazy indonesia given the focus particularly sumatra java and bali we see a bit of rain in the far northwest of india is still there in the forecast on sunday but it's sort of falling apart and that is more or less a completely dry picture including almost all of sri lanka which means the air is not going to be stirred up in the north and indian plain again so fog becomes a persistent problem which in the cities makes things very unpleasant was pretty poor quality now that last into monday and again par for fusions for lanka you are dry. sponsible qatar airways. north korea isolated and heavily sanctioned yet earning billions around the globe there are $39.00 is involved in everything that makes money for north korea. to carry defer to customers so they come to us. the money this year and it goes

7:16 pm
is reviewing whether to keep the terror group designation imposed on the movies by the trump government. over $1000.00 vaccine maker astra zeneca has cut its promise delivery to the e.u. blaming supply chain issues it's a severe setback for the blocks vaccination program that's already suffering after pfizer beyond tax load then supply. china's reported upwards of $100.00 new daily corona virus infections for more than 10 days in a row is the worst surge in cases it's seen since march last year and this is coming on the anniversary of the world's 1st covert 1000 locked on when china sealed off the city of walk run between january and june testing has been ramped up in parts of the country ahead of february lunar new year holidays that's when hundreds of millions of people are expected to travel to visit their families meanwhile thousands of people in hong kong have been ordered to stay at home the lock down is the toughest pandemic restriction imposed on the territory so far it
7:17 pm
affects a densely populated district that accounted for half of all new coronavirus cases over the past week hong kong has been struggling to contain an outbreak since november it jim brands in the district with a lot of plans in place and explains why it's been hardest hit. well this is something the hong kong government probably wanted to avoid locking down one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in the city but the tape and jordan areas have been seeing very high infection rates during the past week to 10 days those infection rates running up between 70 to 100 a day so now over the weekend medical workers are going to be testing tens of thousands of residents who live in these pretty decrepit buildings you can see behind me and that's possibly one of the reasons why the virus has been spreading many people live in lot of basically subdivided apartments within a flat basically one room apartments where there's barely enough room very even a bed they share washing facilities toilet facilities kitchen facilities and
7:18 pm
government officials say they believe that the virus here has been spreading through broken sewage pipes now so far hong kong has recalled recorded about 10000 coated infections cynthy outbreak began in january last year we've had more than $160.00 deaths but this is the 1st no lockdown up until now and of course the worry for many people is this lockdown might have to spread to other areas if we start to see infections rising in those areas. taiwan's defense minister is reporting what it calls a large incursion by chinese military planes taipei says 13 chinese bombers and fighter jets flew into the southwestern corner of its defense identification zone tensions between beijing and taipei are at an all time high after the u.s. left a decades old restrictions on direct contact with taiwan officials last week william

yang is a journalist and vice president of the taiwan foreign correspondents club he says this move by beijing is a message to the biden administration. this is a continuation of from the policy and the strategy that china has adopted since last year over the last year the 20000 men have been deploying its fighter jets for more than 300 times throughout 2020 in order to respond to all kinds of different incursions by chinese fighter jets into the a.z. id and then today we saw the biggest number of single day incursion. prompted by the chinese fighter jets and i think this is a very clear sign that china is sending to the us it is very unhappy with what the trump administration has done before it left the office and it should also be seen as a message that biden at the ministry shinde pacing is closely watching the monitoring how washington is planning to at sam's work continue its relationship with
7:20 pm
timelines for the part of taiwan it really depends on how the taiwanese government is going to interpret the messages and also the engagement coming from washington and at the same time for biden it is he's administrating well have to walk a very fine line between not angering beijing by very publicly in handling the engagement with taiwan but at the same time ensuring that how many people are not going to worry that the lesser public engagement won't be viewed as a way that the bike and the station is going to walk away from what the taiwan and the u.s. have been building over the last 4 years. protesters are out on the streets of tunis again demanding social justice and jobs it's one of several rallies held since the 10 year anniversary of the jasmine revolution on january the 4 teams activists say the promises of what the movement kicked off the arab spring have not been met china's is economy is struggling with high inflation and international

7:22 pm
killed in a quarrel and her water last me. it's either us or them i don't care if we all die even if the case states what generations will keep telling our children and their children what happened those responsible for the killings are now serving time in palestinian jails their families have been forced out of the village their houses have been set on fire not once but several times who will defend the tribal justice system say it's helped the revenge. others argue that they want basic human rights still these tribes work under the umbrella of the palestinian authority more than 60 percent of the occupied west bank is off limits for the palestinian authority this makes it more difficult to arrest offenders and enforce court orders . b.s. legitimacy continuity and. protect the political system.
7:23 pm
drives can sometimes be faster and more effective than the state's courts they can put pressure on families as mohamed knows only too well he was in an israeli jail when his father killed a man in 2009 isn't all your family was forced to leave the village and he hasn't been allowed to return to his house. yes there has been a crime if this means that a whole family will be punished for 15 to 20 years and we don't live in a country that respects itself. 40 percent of palestinians trust. just the systems something the palestinian authority has failed to establish a strong judicial apparatus more than 2 decades after. the occupied west bank. cyclon enemies has made landfall near

7:25 pm
a few 1000 people have been relocated to places like schools to areas that are low lying so that people can be kept safe from the flood waters but the concern is that those flood waters are expected to continue over the next 72 hours and in areas outside of barrow like boozy which was severely impacted 2 years ago with is barely been a recovery from psycho it i once again we're seeing a very difficult dangerous situation there at a point now where aid agencies where workers can't get out to this area be they can only reach boozy by boat and at this point even that seems impossible so there's a lot of concern around the capacity of the aid agencies as well as the government to how people we know that the national disaster institute has said about half a 1000000 people could be impacted whereas the international federation of the red cross has said that could go up to 1000000 people so so far we understand potentially devastating scenes coming out of mozambique and

7:28 pm
years old i would come on sunday mornings as you would go have a coffee in the path of the then you come for a walk around the your feet see we would walk in and out with ease this of course was a long time ago. but it's a big. if we consider it part of our culture as a florentine it's our home museum you'd have to book a month in advance then you'd have to stand in long queues you don't feel like it's your home any more it makes you lose the desire to visit these are arguably some of the most famous paintings in the world this is what the chinese spring and then over there you have the iconic the birth of venus to be able to observe them pretty much alone is an extraordinary privilege and it's raising a question here among italians about the need to control mass tourism. outside florence is unrecognizably empty. temp you know the mali we in normal times this would be full you couldn't even take
