4:01 pm
the assassination of former leader. and who will replace board. johnson, as british prime minister, will look at the growing field of contender and ford. a blockbuster of men had his final is underway at wimbledon, up the nowhere chunk of it, just bidding for a 4th consecutive title, he faces australia, curio, was going for his 1st rent. who's hello, we start in south africa where at least 14 people have been killed in shooting 9. others have been injured and taken to hospital police say a group of gunman, open fire on patrons inside a bar. and they do. hon is burg suburb of so wet to catch a lopez on the latest. the
4:02 pm
overwhelming pain as families are called to identify their relatives. it was after midnight when police say more than a dozen people shot dead by gunman in the bar. neutral harrisburg bodies piled near the entrance. our victims were tried to run out and escape. what we know is that the assailants, the just entered into that space. well, people entering the info from the shorter and only to them, investigators have described the shooting as a massacre. it saddens us that a new one now possesses a gun, was to try it. the account is on our communities and was to call upon communities to actually will indeed assist the police in, bring in to book a. those a paper treat as police, say, nothing was stolen from the business. now the focus turns on catching those responsible, finding out why the victims were targeted to
4:03 pm
a little bit. so the young al jazeera while the attack comes to us, ours, after another shooting and eastern south africa, 4 people were killed during his shoot out at a bar and peter married berg 8 others were injured. earlier i spoke to william, we do, may de, he's the executive chairperson of the democracy works foundation and was also deputy editor of the. so what's a newspaper? he says south africa needs to get a handle on gun violence. what he's very clear is africa culture violence. you know, we've been unable to tackle our culture a violence. and secondly, our culture of guns and weapons, you know, guns freely available in the country. and because the country comes from a history, r o state filings and in anti prostate movement violence and also a culture of a violent and you bring it together with guns in 3 circulation. and then,
4:04 pm
you know, currently a lack of effect of policing in the country brings us this really terrifying violence makes if we are not seeing the company. so as you're saying, shooting is not uncommon, uncommon in the country. i mean, give us a sense of what they're linked to and also how big problem gun crime is in the country and particularly perhaps and so when we're this latest shooting took place, you know, a gun kind really is a very big problem in our country. and we also have the other circumstances in our board is up fully police. so you know, so there's also in trucks of illegal guns and weapons from the side of africa. and then you combine, it's also to already fee of available guns in south africa. so guns are often use with knives in certain parts of the country as part of crime. and then the
4:05 pm
thing was, you know, the crime in south africa, which is often very violent, is often accompanied what guns did the other thing about guns also, factually. it is also, you know, in some parts of a society come past, you know, people's identity, you know, sense of power and the mattress linked to guns has become, throws in black communities. i need many what, why communities actually become. so guns have become poverty. i tend to 2 people and we've been able to this, to the associate guns, were the identity, particular male identity often in the company. so where does the failure lie in not being able to tackle this issue. and what would you like to see done? you know, the 1st part of the failure, of course, is just lack of pre leasing a breakdown of the rule of law in the company so that it becomes
4:06 pm
a government failure. failure if the government friendly to take the rule of law fears to because you know, rule of law impact on the country across from economic point of view from a point of view from jobs. when you associate government has not actually seen. i think the seriousness of rule of law for ability of the country. secondly, is also the society must have a conversation which itself, you know, around guns and around silence. and that we really have to make the juice of violence. must make, it's not part of the society and i must instance itself from guns and from violence the way to deal with problems. protesters in sure. like i say they will keep occupying the president home until both he and the prime minister resign. go to pyro japan, and his prime minister have said they will step down later this week. crowds storm
4:07 pm

4:08 pm
rebuild. as protest, swelled president by a roger poxy fled his overrun, residence, and left the mainland to the safety of an offshore naval ship. yeah, how long he is? no longer the president of long, long he has been expelled by the citizens isreal and therefore this is victoria moment anytime in the official resignation from leaders for a nation in rebellion. now, little more than formalities, this is going to be an extremely critical time to ensure those political stability, as well as economic stability at a time where there's also a law and order situation erupting. so if widens is not contained, they concern that this is going to deepen the crises. so very, very important times i had for sri lanka, overseas remittances and tourism are the countries main sources of revenue. after i
4:09 pm
saw the bomb attacks on churches and hotels in 2019, and then the cobra, 1900 pandemic, both dried up. the united nations has warned with millions already in need of basic help. a humanitarian crisis is looming. the latest political turmoil has been a long time coming. then basra b o. d 0. plenty more had on the aisle 0 news hour, including ah, ridge against the government in argentina were staggering, inflation and amounting economic crisis has united people from both sides of the political divide. we follow the plight of thousands living in unsafe accommodation in lebanon because they are too poor to move elsewhere in sport. here, we'll hear what liverpool manager has to say about the season ahead of his team starts a tour of thailand. ah,

's largest to faction,
4:11 pm
still wielded considerable influence, and his assassination may result in sympathy votes for the party. i think our bay has thought a lot about this country, and i hope this election can make his efforts worth while to mean doing. you do go though, who there may be more people had been fought for the liberal democratic party of the assassination was a shocking incident. so i think people have many thoughts, but i hope they can vote based on their own decision. a surge of support will help prime minister for me. you kinda strengthen his grip on power. it may even see the l d p and his junior coalition partner co mito controlling 2 thirds of parliament, which would allow them to take the 1st steps in amending the constitution. one of our, these goals had been to revise the country's pacifist constitution, which forbids japan's offensive military capabilities. meanwhile,
4:12 pm

4:13 pm
donnie ask region. so when you pull through zillow, lima, she loses, what have we done to them? and one of our people done to hurt them. there was darkness. and then it all started. we ran to the basement. there were 3 hits the 1st somewhere in the kitchen and the 2nd i don't even remember there was lightning. we ran towards the 2nd entrance and then straight into the basement. we sat there all night until this morning. the metal door was blown and it wounded a woman, and then there was a man wounded over there. for more on this, let's bring an allen fisher. he's joining us from keep. so what more do we know about what happened and travis belch as if yar alan well, it happened just before dawn, there was a huge explosion around this building, which as you say, is a 5 story building. it appears that it caused the building to collapse. that because of the time it happened just before dawn, the suspect that most people were either in their own homes or in the basement
4:14 pm
sheltering because they may well have the alarm. so in, off in the area beforehand, they've 50, they've been killed. but as you see, the local governor expects that number to go up and to go up there quite significantly in the next couple of hours. 5 people were taken from the that with the wreckage alive. they are in touch with 3 people who are still alive in, at the rubble in the debris at. but the think there are a number of dead people in there as well. and it's also very difficult for the rescue services her. busy on the scene because they have to remove the brick piece by piece until they get to a big part. then they can bring in heavy lifting gear and move that. but this is going to be a slow process. now, the chief of staff for the president zalinski, he has said that this was a terrorist act committed by a terrorist nation, and he's called on other countries to declare russia, a state sponsor of terrorism. the russians of course, have repeatedly denied that the target civilian areas are,
4:15 pm
but we know that the russians have at to a degree taken a pause in the donates area at the ukrainians. believe that is they are just building up forces and building up munitions for a final push to try and take all of the dynette scary. it's just a week ago since they took over virtual control of the hands area and with lance can donates that makes up the whole of the don bass, which of course became a major military goal for the russian. so at the people in the area where this rocket attack happened, i can only stand by and watch the rescue services as they borrow. don't enter the wreckage trying to see if there are more people alive. and if they're on how many more bodies they will pull out of the rubble, sir alan, that is the situation in the east of the country. tell us about what's happening in the countries west. of course, one of the russians main objectives was to move towards kiva as quickly as possible . and that meant
4:16 pm
a great deal of fighting in around the that the suburbs of keith. no, we've been to, to one place where the russians were camped out in the woods. dear bye. as a village i of a significant number of people. but the decided that they weren't going to take their chances and they decided to go. except for one quite remarkable, great grandmother. this village used to be home to around 800 people than the russians came. and there was just one that he is or you can never left as others run for safety. she stayed when there was shelling, she hid in her basement for a month. the 72 year old slept here too with just her cat for company. oh its saying, oh saying when there was heavy shelling the ground would shake and i would slightly open the door just to see if it was my house or somewhere else. when neighbors houses started to burn, i tried to put out the flames, but it was just too much,
4:17 pm
man. she wasn't scared, she says, a voice told her she would be safe. russell that there i saw 2 soldiers. i saw the yellow and blue stripes. i knew they were ukrainians, and i knew then i could come out of him and in a swift the devastation in motion is obvious. homes destroyed, ripped apart, and the fighting. people are no returning with one charity on hand, giving basics to people who have lost everything. we are providing medical support . we're providing food support, baby food, children, food and also various toys for the kids. it seems simple, but at the other hand, they are very expensive for these people. for the people in the village, the rebuild may have started, but the danger is still here. the used to be able to use the forest any time they wanted, but they see there is no sealed off because that our minds there are no one knows where they are. some cried when they saw the shell of the place. they called home.
4:18 pm
but they are rebuilding, we have no choice, this is all the have. first room will all, everything we have go to was destroyed as usual. nothing left to me and we have to start again from scratch. it will take years to assume that he is acre is glad people are coming back. she says it's nice to see old faces. nice to no longer have to hide next to no longer have a war raging on her doorstep. allan fisher, i'll just either motion you cream while the line up of candidates to replace bar. as johnson, as british prime minister is growing more crowded by the day, the former defense secretary penny more dance has announced. she's launching her bed. that follows for contender, as who entered the race on saturday. paul rece reports warning mercy. how do you follow an act like boris johnson? that's what the contenders for the job of next, british prime minister, a trying to work out. decide whether richie soon act chancellor until last week,
4:19 pm
and one of those whose rebellion force johnson out looks like the front runner do we can he set the tone as he launched his bed with a re slick video nation. let me tell you a story. it details indian grandparents arrival in the u. k. t via east africa. and the video is high on a motion perhaps to show his conservative party colleagues that he can relate to voters. it's your story matter moon. in the short term, it's the conservative policy which will select the next leader, long term. it's voters who will decide some people, one big personality, just like always, other people are going to be looking so many can stand on the world stage. the conservative party m p 's party members will be thinking, who's best place to win an election in 2 years time, whose personality can cut through to, to intellectual, that's often seen as pretty disgruntled and disenfranchised with u. k. politics.
4:20 pm
after receive soon, i get a list of increasingly unknown characters who are lining up 3 leader. that could give the conservatives the problem of how to reach voters who swayed just as much by bars. johnson's personality as they were by his politics the among those confirmed iraq war veterans home to the heart and attorney general soa braverman. sooner was heir apparent to johnson for a long time before his 1000000000. i wife's status as a non taxpayer cause problems for me and charged with handling the case finances. but johnson often proved the depth of moving on from the mistakes he made in power . soon. not cool hope he can do the same and replace his former boss. let's speak to paul, he's joining us from london. so new names in the mix today. paul, tell us about them. yes, serena. busy as you mentioned, penny more than the last one to officially confirm that she'll be running to be a concert leader of the conservative party. and by extension,
4:21 pm
british prime minister, she's one of the ones who really isn't a household name in this list that's down to 9 people. so fall, she's, she made a page that it's time for the, for the policy and the country to move on from the sort of personality, politics of boris johnson and, and, and, and hate these, these candidates haven't really shown a great deal of personality so far on saturday, a couple more we're. busy we're. busy we're frame sachi, javan. he was health secretary until last week, and he was one of the ones who resigned to add to spawk the downfall of forest johnson. as british prime minister johnson resigning of course, last thursday at alongside his resignation, was richie su, not who was mentioned in, in that report that he was chancellor of the exchequer. before he resigned. and he released the vice slick video to announce his candidacy. he's perhaps the front
4:22 pm
runner, and we are expected to see pretty patel the home secretary. decide whether she's going to run in the next 24 hours. also patel best known perhaps as a mastermind behind the decision to try and the port asylum seekers to rwanda. right. and once this actually gets to a general election poll, what are the big issues for for the u. k. voters? well, basically, it's the economy, there's several issues that are affecting the u. k. economy economy. at the moments the fall out from breck sits, they are continuing fall out from the cove. it crisis at the the effect or no energy prices are impacted by the war in ukraine. more specifically, the issue in this leadership com type contest and further on to the election looks at the moment to be tax. that's where the battle lines are being drawn in the
4:23 pm
conservative party leadership contest. and they look like they're being drawn mainly against richey soon act. now, when he was chancellor of the exchequer, he brought in measures at to deal with the crone of iris pandemic, including the furlough scheme that settled the u. k. with the biggest levels of borrowing since the 2nd world war and his plan to get the u. k. out of that was to raise taxes. and indeed, he suggested that that is still the responsible thing to do raising taxes is something that conservatives usually are allergic to. and his opponents in this race a saying that is not something that i going to do. they want to reverse. some of the tax rises hayes made, lower taxes overall in order to stimulate the economy. and that's why that's something that sooner has said that he's afraid, well, just increase inflation even more inflation. one of the things currently
4:24 pm
contributing to the cost of living crisis in the u. k. so when it comes down to the election in 2 years time, and the party now is going to have to decide, will the voters want to back someone who's saying, okay, let's be responsible. let's raise taxes to get ourselves out of this. i out of this crisis less not daydream, or are they going to want to say back someone he says, i'm going to put money back in your pocket pocket right now. historically, it's usually the latter kind of candid i, the voters have gone full. all right, thank you so much. paul reese, reporting from london. the rising cost of living is causing economic turbulence across latin america. in chile, inflation is forecast to hit 12 percent by the end of this year, fueled in part by political uncertainty. lucio newman reports from santiago for generations of jillions will never experienced high inflation. rising prices of
4:25 pm
food and fuel, our shock sales woman claudia, at an id. i says she's never seen anything like it. yes, i'm a for you. the other day i paid $12.00 for a tiny piece of meat and bones for that price i used to buy a kito, a fillet her sirloin steak. i'm not joking. this is all i have, biscuits, a capsicum to tints for the calf and another kado. i think $15.00 company looking at it on the hurdle, you know that in the last 6 months, inflation has surpassed 7 percent compared to the usual 3 percent a year. last month, the central bank raised interest rate to yet again, by 9 percent, which means new homeowners are struggling to repay their loans. and to make matters significantly worse, the u. s. dollar has reached a historic high against the gillian vessels or passing the $900.00 missile mark. in fact, experts say that it will likely go over 1000 vessels in the next couple of months.
4:26 pm
and this is, it's really problematic. there's 2 out of every 3 items in the basic basket of goods. the chileans consume, is imported in us dollars. chilly needs dollars to buy petrol and gas, which it does not produce fuel and food have shot up most of all, mainly due to the ukraine crisis. but they're also internal factors. the previous government overheated the economy with aggressive pandemic subsidies. it's been followed by mumps, of political uncertainty over the economic repercussions of constitution that could be approved in september by one. i would talent them and unfortunately we are in a very stormy scenario. the authorities will have to work wonders revert. the situation was shocked to her new government was elected on the platform of ambitious social reforms and promised tax hikes to pay for them. but given the economic scenario, many question,
4:27 pm
this week's decision to push ahead with it. a move finance minister mario marcel defense, even though it will further spook investors. one delory was from willie me though. when the states resources are limited, the government must prioritize them. the next government or minister changes that were signs, resources elsewhere and discretionary manner that ends up eroding the legitimacy of the states public policies. okay. whatever the reasons, inflation and uncertainty, both of which have been strangers naturally. i be coming every day, worked in what was latin america's most stable economy. lucy and human al jazeera santiago and in neighboring argentina. its government is facing a rising tide of demonstrators as it struggles to rain in soaring inflation and poverty protest her from across the political divide held separate rallies in the capital bonus iris. daniel schriner reports argentina united facing its problems together. that was the message to the nation given by

4:35 pm
a victory. and for more sure, lumpkins that are here. they say they're not going to lose an opportunity to see how their leaders lived. this is our tax money. so i'm here because of the out. so what kind of things been done for our tax money? that's excellent, but i'm here is the maximum. so just so to understand the part of people and the sheer number of people trying to get in to see the president's house is posing a real problem. those who are part of the protest campaign who are still trying to control some of the crowds are urging people to be careful, very structural damage, obviously a very all property and just cannot handle. the sheer numbers are climbing up the staircase that has been structurally shoes. so that's posing a very real problem and the danger. and this obviously the swimming pool at the president's house of the water looking very much. 2 worse for the ware, but those iconic pictures of people are diving into this right after the protest is
4:36 pm
essentially over at this residence. now president go, toby raja boxer is reported to have been evacuated to safety before the protest has actually got into the property. we still haven't seen any signs of him other than to hear the statement that he has indicated he is willing and able and willing on his resignation. on the 13th of july, let so speak to helen catacombs, who's a political economist than senior lecturer at the university of josh. he's joining us from there. welcome to al jazeera, thanks for your time. so we know that people obviously are struggling to get essential is like food, fuel, and medicine in the country, but paints a picture for us in jaffe, not in the north of the country, tell us how people are struggling. their situation has been quite fresh throughout the country and it has been in the north as well, particularly for daily labouring sound is given one miller days now becoming difficult because there's no production happening in the economy. i'm not able to
4:37 pm
cultivate because they don't have just the fishermen. i'm not able to go to see. so this whole cycle for regime change is island white because people are feeling the pressure throughout the country. and this president and time is to have been the lead to ice throughout the country. what do you make of the, the scenes that we saw yesterday and the protest that took place in colombo, i mean, have you ever seen such scenes in the country? no. this is unprecedented, but it was also a great day for democracy and 3 lot of people around the world. but judy list with a 5 fractions going on, even in the notch. for the 1st time protest installing data to the most financially in the not as well. so it's been
4:38 pm
that reflects all the sort of democratic energies of the people that the big question is. what next? and how we're going to win through, particularly the economic crisis as deform an intern gotten that right. so but in terms of the succession plan, so to speak, the president and the prime minister are saying that they have the intention of resigning if and when they do so, what happens next for wine. as soon as the president had to resign, the speaker becomes an acting president and then they would have to elect another president from. among the parliamentarians has also been called for abolishing the presidency. the contrition so much power in one individual. so hopefully someone with the agreement that is going to be
4:39 pm
a symbolic president until such time that constitutional changes can be brought for them to abolish the presidency. all the parties that are not part of the government and will not be the raj boxes could hopefully form the national government. and even if it's a minority government with the support of the peoples movement, government, the country for a period of time, particularly to bring about political. but also you can mix up getting essential goods. and that is what people are really looking for. some sort of economic stability. how do you see that, that playing out? the crucial need now is the supply of fuel and medicines and food. in particular, physical food prices might even be in 2 months time.
4:40 pm
unless agriculture production is encouraged and the needs of the people are met through reading. this is not the time for it from on the fonts. you would have to get a fresh mandate, the new job. and then before we just go for a moment to form immediately, there can't be it will auster and she should be getting ready to be able to survive . i economy would be shrinking as much as by attend this year. so it's very nice to to us. ok, thank you so much for speaking to us from draft not in sri lanka into space x, a set to launch another 46 darling satellites is faith. the falcon, 9 rocket will be jetting off from california, vendor berg space force base on monday. and if all goes to plan and the satellites will be deployed into low earth orbit about an hour after a lift off, let's talk about this. with justin caspar, who's a professor of climate and space sciences and engineering at the university of
4:41 pm
michigan. he's joining us from washington, d. c. welcome to al jazeera. so talk us through the significance of this launch. this is space x is 50 if one ship startling spacecraft. once this launches successful, they'll be about $2500.00 operational starling spacecraft circling earth accounting for nearly half of the operational satellites and orbit around are really a stunning accomplishment. right, and what is the ultimate aim then to have all these orbiting earth? so earth is being surrounded by a mash of these small satellites. they can pass internet data between satellites and then they can communicate to whoever's underneath each of those satellite. so as more and more of the spacecraft, orbit earth anywhere in the world. if you have a small satellite dish, you can have broadband quality internet access. so we'll, we'll, every, i mean this is, this is a broad question, but will everyone then have access to this type of technology? how does it work?
4:42 pm
that's very interesting, right now. star link is opening access on a country by country basis and the satellites pass over every country in the world . so it's up to space x and startling to decide which countries they allow subscriptions into. but we saw just a few months ago with the flip of an electronic switch, they were able to enable access to ukraine. that's exactly what i wanted to ask you about next. in fact, because talk to us about the evolution of sterling because as we're seeing, it seems to have evolved from commercial use into as you just reference ukraine and providing ukraine with 1500 sterling kits which allowed the ukrainian military means of communication. yes, that's right. you know, it's, it's a means of communicating and sending information. and so any kind of information can well in this, in anyone that startling allows to, can use it. so i think this is a really interesting new mode of communication that

a lot of countries are following. you can't firewall or block the satellites. in fact, we saw there were attempts to jam the startling spacecraft over ukraine and they were able to defeat that jamming technology very quickly. so how serious though is the concern that nasa raised a short while ago in fact saying that the starling satellites risk collision in orbits with other satellites. and in fact, they had approach dangerously close to the chinese space station last year. that's what the chinese had said. that's right. you know, as this accounts for more than half of the spacecraft orbiting the earth, there are more and more frequent potential collisions between these subtle it's starling says they use information about known spacecraft to automatically maneuver to avoid collisions. but as we have more and more debris in space,
4:44 pm
