12:03 am
but so was all of the government under the president. but now news emerging that he's been arrested and charged with treason indicates that there appears to be a political power struggle that has been going on in catholic storm between president or kayak and the former president. no. so that's a by of who, despite having handed over the presidency back in 2019, continues to wield significant power in the country and must seem of was one of his guys. now it seems that i have may have the upper hand having dismissed my theme of arrested my females and dismissed other figures from their rows including the former president. that the buyer who had the role is set head of the chairman of the security council. now it seems that the curve has the upper hand, and he's doing that. it appears due to his agreement, clearly thrust out with vladimir putin who heads the security block that has been
12:04 am
able so quickly to deploy to kazakhstan. so having russian backing behind him appears to be a signal to all those in the police police cars, ext on that. so if he's now the man inch really in charge in control of all the leave is of power in, in the country. oh no overseas john lisa currently being allowed into context on our desert. ronnie grady as at the cadillac border with caregiver done min and soul, thought lucas austonia. although authorities and catholics dont have repeatedly confirmed that all has been restored. we've been receiving reports that the situation is unstable and volatile. from sporadic clashes to protest various locations up to the recurrent gunfire in and around o marty. we spoke to a number of cookers, donny citizens who passed through the border crossing point behind me, and they described the intel of security presence across the city and streets of classic storm extensive search and arrest operations have not been interrupted with a total of $4500.00 people to attain so far. walk the quickest on is we spoke to

12:06 am
much of which has yet to be exploited. russian oil companies, important process, the majority of cars, it's downs, crude oil, all russian space missions take off and land from the by connor space bought in kazakhstan. built by the soviets in the 1950s. it's been leased by russia since the early ninety's, kazakhstan is the latest of the former soviet nations bordering russia to be hit by social unrest. i mean, he has revolution brought regime change in 2018 but fellowship present. alexander lucas shanker managed to hold on to power by force in 2020 at now bring in lucca and jessica, who is a professor of your asian studies at glasgow university. how is the intervention of russia at the invitation of to kind of current, either the country likely to affect his domestic legitimacy?
12:07 am
well, it is very likely to make is a government issue more stable because they obviously have been a series of internal struggle between bots or the elite and russia will scalding battle. kind of in order to bolster up is only g and ensuring the continued to cuss and the governance at this time. unfortunately though, i mean 40 for the cause, like i said in general, these kind of russian intervention is going to have deeper and longer term consequences on the choices to carfax, on the can make in terms of foreign policy. so you have a short term effect in terms of governance in terms of to kind of be bolstered by the other hand, you're going to have a series of more, more important, more consequential each one impact on what kind of son kenyon come to in the longer term if he's feeling confident about support from the russians,
12:08 am
why then arrest foreigner, intelligence chief kind i seem of that. he is a nice one, is a powerful figure in the country, an ally of the former president or sultan as or by as now that to kind of has arrested him. does that? does that mean that he has more control over a security services? we certainly gas, i mean you have to understand this, the power struggle we seen play dark unfortunately in the street of like signing the last week along side. very beautiful, very timid pull. just being played along 2 factions, one headed by took, are you in one if you want, connected to, must see more in the other by family at large saw d or did is lisa 1st and the or less later home. really sick nodes, a relation lunch that is due to function with border
12:09 am
russia as actually want to struggle at least for now. i seem obvious, not on going to question for you guys. very powerful is the 2nd most powerful medical exam and the most reasonable optimism, bye. so it really tells us that the struggle, at least for the moment, has been seen by to harvest. what opening now is a hoax on which we're going to see very much a kind of an, a master stroke on the part of to kind of because he is trying to gain more control of the security apparatus. at the same time, he's cracking down on a and as or by of loyalists at a time when you have people furious at the, the vast fortunes at the elite of a mass for themselves. while people deal with terrible working conditions and low
12:10 am
salaries does that is, does that create some sort of hope that reform might take place? i hadn't used to ward my social because we now have a president who we deeply import unpopular because the people are see on the street . where they will say that he's got no policy efficiency is not deliver in the last 3 years. and now it's called russia mean. so what we have is a very short term continuation made by that in order to say. ready its own power to guarantee. so hold on to the presidency, e, cold ration, c a c o 2 in. so there is a very big difference between how elite paul parties were played with the higher stadium power after the struggle. and we just bought a booty really the many want to to where on the street,
12:11 am
especially with got you seem to pulled is going on for exactly the same reason they were before last week. you know, can kaski, thank you very much for joining us. you're welcome. now east 56 people of reportedly been killed in an as striking, easier appears. northern tech. why region? the striking account for internal internally displaced, people in the town of dead have been in the border with eritrea. at least 30 others were injured in the attack, which happened late on friday, according to aid work as the camp host, many of elderly women and also children. but people were not able to escape because it was completely dark. the attack also came shortly after the easy open government announced it was releasing a number of high profile political prisoners, clothing members of the 2 grind rebel forces, government official said it was time to promote national dialogue after more than a year, a war with the to grind rebels, the conflict has spent the country killing thousands of people and displacing
12:12 am
millions. let's discuss this now with certain the turn vol. he is a professor of peace and conflict studies at oslo university college. the director of analytics, which offers advice to government agencies and, and she goes in africa. so we have this prisoner release. tell me, does that mean that some sort of reconciliation is likely to happen between the government and artist and the region of take rye is not what the prime minister's intentions with regard to take right now. well, the recent turn release of political prisoners speaks to an and different context than the civil war taking place in ethiopia. the release of the political prisoners speaks to an the interest of a national dialogue or political change moving forward. so to say, and there are 3 categories of prisoners released, vol no, the groups jar,
12:13 am
becky jordan, warmer them back leg gerber. there are 2 more opposition. leaders speak to the core constituency of the prime minister. or you have as good an egg. the chairman of balderas speaks to an a panic, the open on a, i'm harder, constituency. and then you have the release, or certain all timers, or the degree in people's liberation front, speaking to their, to ryan constituency. but these release of political prisoners, they are aim to foster. it is claimed a political dialogue in the country, a political dialogue for political reconciliation. it is not aimed to earn a start at peace negotiation to stop the civil war, sir their t p a left for the to get in government. and the anomaly brace in the army are still categorized us terrorist organizations,
12:14 am
which the government does not want to speak to. so it is at 2 different context. the civil war is separate from what is happening now, which is aimed to foster some kind or broadening of democratic space in as the opium, which is positive or burn. not necessarily relating to peace negotiations. how long before additional steps are likely to be taken. so to gray is obviously cut off to aid and trade right now. this terrible humanitarian crisis as he say, the tpa life is classified as a terrorist group. are those are those 2 points going to be addressed in the coming weeks and months? well, let's hope so. for certainly the, the civil war is continuing, as you just reported the bone being all that to guy, the civilian a targets into gray is continuing. the human, a tearing blockage of to gray is continuing. there are several 100000 peoples is
12:15 am
starring integral, as we speak, and also the ground war is continuing with conflicts along the to garage border. so that is dick crux of the matter. so to say that is the pertinent issue to address is the civil war, not this condo symbolic gesture, to start a political dialogue at the center with them, with them like minded groups. so to say a of, of, of significant obviously is the release of java and bixler get a bar in a sense that they are the key of position leaders to prime minister of the med and what they've will say in their statement, which is expected to come on monday will be significant in interpreting the way forward in this regard, i can very much satellite turnville, professor, and assign away thank you. in the news, our life from london was to lad,

12:31 am
welcome back. a look at the main stories now. after a week of anti government unrest, kazakhstan, former intelligence chief curry, must see mom has been arrested on suspicion of treason, fueling speculation of a power struggle within the ruling party. at least 56 people have reportedly been killed in an as strike account for entirely despised people in ethiopia, northern tech ry region. it came shortly after the ethiopian government announced it was releasing a number of high profile political prisoners. and at least $22.00 people, including 10 children of died in pakistan of to thousands of vehicles got trapped overnight in a snowstorm. thousands traveled home mountain resort town to see the unusually heavy snow, ignoring extreme weather warnings. when number of people being admitted to hospital in the united states with coven 19 is rising, driven by the highly infectious army con variance of the virus. though more than 900000 cases reported in the last day and over 2 and a half 1000 deaths,
12:32 am
health regulate is a warning that more and more children under the age of 5 are not eligible to be vaccinated. being admitted to hospitals, which are already short staffed or shebra tansy joined us live now from washington . so she has how much concern is there about this rise in the hospital admissions, particularly among very young children who are too young to be vaccinated. there's always concerned because of hospitalizations, remember all this talk of memory years ago flattening the car was always about not straining, straining, hospital resources, and we did see in the last week 37 states break records for hospitalisation, we passed the peak of the delta search. now for hospitalization, across the country, but there are so many caveats to these to some of these statistics, for example, statistic about those under 5 being hospitalized. and you're right now, we're out us around 400000 children under 5 being hospitalized up from 2.5. but
12:33 am
what we're hearing from doctor, when you dig deeper into, in today's statistics are a lot of those are children who are hospitalized for other reasons. and then when they get to hospital, they are found to have the virus and effect as far as severe disease from disease from the virus is concerned, that stops, that is very low. but the point is that, and it may be online conditions that may have been made the more susceptible to the virus to the 1st place. but these children are often going to the hospital for other issues being tested. and then i have the micron, the, the, all the con buyers, because it is just so prevalent around the country so that, that's can actually, it's a very similar, similar situation for adults. now we see these huge hospitalization figures now for adults as well. but the new york times the suggesting that maybe a half are also incidental curb and patients that as people going into hospital for other conditions. and then they're being tested and then they are found to have cobra. so we have to pass those sophisticated bit more and we should always
12:34 am
remember as you suggested, all going isn't as severe as delta, that's not the point. and in fact, when you look at the graphs and you see the normal spike, in cases with alma chrome, you don't see a proportionate spike in hospitalizations. but what we are seeing is because so many people have on the chrome, that's why you're seeing such a burden on the, on the hospital system. because a small percentage of a huge number clearly is going to be a problem. and the cdc, the center for disease control kaufman agency, changed its guidelines around isolation again, what's, what's happening with that? well, this, this raise eyebrows just because that seems to be a bit of a whispering campaign. anyway, we'll, we'll already whispering a bit of a shouting campaign really against the cdc director where she will and ski she has become a bit of a scapegoat in the last few days. because throughout the pandemic, frankly, the cdc has given mixed messages that seem so ramped up a bit in recent weeks. and then when this new guy just came out, which said ok,
12:35 am
if you get cove it, you no longer have to self isolate for 10 days. but for 5 days, and in fact, you can leave a self isolation within 5 days. but what you don't have to test yourself is just assume that you're a k will not raise eyebrows because it was like, well, how did you come to that conclusion again? and it's sort of suggested, well, why i'm, even though, let me tell you the science now. you're not, you're not as infectious after a few days of code of it. but how do they come to this and was this perhaps because of political expediency because of the reality on the ground was the pressure from the white house, because frankly, the bite administration has been woefully unprepared when it comes to the supply of tests. self tests in the u. s. are these questions have been going around, but the white house has been very much like, wow, it's all half old. it's what i'm ski. well, she's not very good at messaging. today was leak, that she's been on a media training course, but it's not clear then, whether that's necessarily entirely fair because the questions about the whole bite administration's approach and communication throughout this pandemic. i remember just a few months ago was joe biden, who declared the pandemic over at the beginning of summer,
12:36 am
even as all the crew was just taking hold in south africa and elsewhere as the bite and ministration to fail to get tests out and, and then ramp up test production, now they put in $3000000000.00. now they say they're going to send some tests to households who want them, but in the past biden was like, no, leave it up to the private private, the private market, the health insurance companies. good news for them. good news with their profits, but he didn't seem that concern. so that seems to be a bit of whereas off of, if it's household football going on. and then, you know, also in general, frankly, when you look at the bite and ministration, i mean there's also the issue just to, to, to variance and so on it, we were burned out so much information that they're dragging their season intellectual property protections. they said they were in favor of waving them for vaccines, so the rest of the world can get vaccinated. we can prevent more variance. they're not doing anything about of, of capitulated to the pharmaceutical companies. to love it, blame to go roamed, but the white house was certainly focusing on rochelle valencia of the cdc. right now. our thank you very much. amber tanks. he there in washington. now and all the
12:37 am

drones and hijacked ships, which makes them targets with unanimous of them will animate than a year. the hope these have to reconsider when using civilian locations. because under international humanitarian law, they forfeit their immunity. if they miss shoes, such sites under the international humanitarian law, the site will not be considered the civilian size. and thus it will be a legitimate military target or not a development at a saudi princess to attain without charge for nearly 3 years has been set free floors. he is released 57 year old bus mob been sowed, and her daughter both were men, went missing in march 2019 princess bus. my later appeared on social media saying she was being held captive and the capitol riyadh. officials have not filed any charges or provide an explanation. the princess is the youngest child of the late king sowed and has campaigned for women's rights and egyptian palestinian rights.

activists detained in egypt for over 2 years has arrived in france. ramey sharp was released on thursday before being deported. co founder of a pro palestinian group in egypt was accused of having ties with an outlaw organisation. shop was forced to renounce his gyptian citizenship as a pre condition, his release and a half years later, i still have all my days old and my determination to continue. i am continuing my way. i am assisting on freeing my friends and my comrades from egyptian jail. i'm insisting on human rights in egypt insisting for a free palestine. i am insisting that this will continue and they will not stop us through what happened now. the largest and most powerful telescope ever launched into space is fully deployed. completing what nasa describes is the most daunting such project ever attempted. the 2nd of the 2 primary mirror wings on the
12:42 am
10000000000 dollar james, where a telescope has been unfold. the mirror is 6 and a half meters across and out to be folded to fit into the nose cone for last month, left off. capable of seeing the 1st stars and galaxies that formed 13 and a half 1000000000 years ago, all from a classical emotional about it. what an amazing milestone receipt. beautiful pattern out there in the sky and out. almost complete, of course it needs to latch but what an amazing milestone just ahead of it. a 178 out of a 178 of these. you know, actuators, that dog that had to fire the right way. i'm just so amazed about this team where amy, lynn thompson, is a florida base base and science channel as he writes his face dot com. she joins us now from orlando. so this is the last bit of the deployments as the james web telescope, just put into context for is how significant these,
12:43 am
these maneuvers were today. and being able to unfold the telescope so that it can find a b operational. sure. so it's incredibly huge achievement . his telescope has been 25 years and the making and scientists are so ready for it to get to the point where it can actually send back pictures. and these were the crucial steps that had to happen to make sure that that works. what could have gone wrong? so many things there were actually 340 for a different failure points. and all of those i believe, except for $48.00 have been cleared and those are normal ones that happen over the course of the mission. so it has a sun shield which is basically the size of a tennis court and that has 5 different alter thin layers to it. so just those alone had to a unfurl and b tension. so that way it would actually keep the telescope cool
12:44 am
enough to complete at science objectives. and then on top of that you had the mirror unfolding. and all of that is just a significant achievement. right? this is a very exciting day, isn't it for self proclaimed space geeks, but perhaps anyone who might be interested in the the origins of the universe. why have scientists describe this as a time machine? so it is going to look very far back into the universe as maybe about a 100000000 years after the big bang. and what it's going to do is look at in for red light. and so that's like the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that we feel as heat. and so stars and galaxies, planets whenever they form are very, very hot. so the telescope is going to look for those heat signatures as far back,
12:45 am
you know, as a 100000000 years after the big bang, which is incredible. so we could not only see some of the 1st stars and galaxies, but it can also do things as sniff out eco planet atmosphere to see what kinds of chemicals are in there. maybe even to find, you know, other habitable poll, habitable planets out in the universe. right. so we might learn more about how stars came into existence and how they and how they evolve. and perhaps also the, the possibility of life in our planetary system. yes. so with other nasa observatories, especially the kepler's space telescope, nasa has been able to identify thousands of potential ac, so planet, so planets that orbit stars outside of our solar system. but they aren't really
12:46 am
sure exactly what they're made of like, are they a planet that's like earth? are they a planet that like jupiter, that sort of thing. so they can get a rough estimate. but this odd telescope will actually allow them to sample atmospheres. so it's pretty incredible. oh, thank you very much for sharing your thoughts for this amy lynn thompson, joining us that from florida. thank you. still had on the news hour and a get you all the latest. 4th news and the well number one continues, have perfect warm up head of the 1st grand slam of the year from color to black and white wine, you european union health ruling could have a major impact on the tattoo industry ah, from lagos, to jerusalem, to buy 'em on the governor's is going to use my own home milestone history,
