7:04 am
no relationship and a long history of animosity with not just the president of the trip, but eritrea as a whole. this is huge by every measure. the science is of refugees have crossed over the past. we have a more we can, has more from the sea done ethiopia, forger, hundreds of refugees continue to arrive here at the border reception center. now the center is just about 2 kilometers away from the sudan. if you appear border in sudan's state and hundreds of refugees have been pouring in here in 200, a perception center with the number reaching up to 1000 just over the past few days alone. now most of them live in conditions like this out in the open with no shelter and no proper sanitation. and this is raising concerns among aid organizations here, especially medics. that this would create a health crisis. medics say that most of the people who are right suffer from chest
7:05 am
infections as well as malaria infections due to exhaustion from traveling for days, skipping the fighting in the tigra region. most of the refugees was hoping to speak of the same horror saying that they have seen people being slaughtered, that they've seen aerial bombardments, which is made them fear for their lives and flee here to sudan seeking safety and seeking humanitarian aid. now, medics say that they are quite concerned about the number of refugees and the influx. they say that they're expecting more than 1000 over the coming days. and that's just here. and one day it's what a reception center sudan says that it's putting a total of up to 200000 in the coming week between here in kosovo state and out of state with both border if european and it's calling out for the international aid organizations to help respond to what it's calling is turning out to be a refugee crisis. well, william lawrence is a former u.s. diplomat, a professor of international affairs at george washington university. he says the rocket attacks on eritrea are more serious escalation in the conflict. the 1st
7:06 am
thing that come to mind when i think about this is 1st worse usually store for one set of reasons, escalated for another set of reasons and then are settled on different terms than the original. the original work was started and also in this part of the world, any war is immediately or syrian crisis because of the situation. a lot of the people in the way the words are of and you've got a lot of different ethnic groups here. the fighting immediately effects sudan or tree of ethiopia in sort of counter-intuitive ways in some cases. and that's always there. you've got ethnic animosities, reconsiders, so almost anything as soon as the killing starts and the atrocities start on can spread to other areas rather quickly. it is going to deescalate eritrea doesn't really have a dog that might. and even though they share ethnic commonalities with their region,

7:08 am
leading the country and who has now named a new cabinet, a very conservative cabinet. does that people feel that it does not represent them, and people feel that this group of legislators, 105 who voted for the impeachment of discover, have really stolen the presidency. they say that they did not vote for this new interim government. and people are very angry. also because a lot of these congressmen, 68 of them are facing criminal investigations that go from homicide to abuse, to fraud, to money laundering. so people say that there's a group of, of thugs, really, that have taken over the government, that there is no independence of powers between the executive and legislative and that democracy is, is on the line. thousands

7:17 am
parents and friends, especially up to christmas. but we must. and i am convinced of this, take this step together. so i ask you to help out over the next few weeks together, we can turn the tide because the more consistently we pull through this lockdown, the shorter we will need it to be summoned. the united states has set yes, another record for a new coronavirus cases, reporting more than 180000 infections in 24 hours. deaths are also rising fast, and hospital admissions are at their highest levels. yet some states have imposed a near complete shutdown in ahead of a major holiday. the u.s. centers for disease control has forecast that the death toll could jump by another 36000 in the next 4 weeks out to syria's role. reynolds is in los angeles with more on the challenges ahead. it's a very, very dire, very grim picture that we see all across the united states. as the
7:18 am
winter weather begins to set in, people are no longer able to safely congregate outdoors in class, socially distance, distance manner. and it is the holidays coming up, which generally involve people gathering together in the family groups. and, you know, mixing households with that is also great concern and a lot of public health officials and political leaders around the country in the states and cities are calling on people to postpone or alter their traditional holiday celebrations. now all of this takes place as president donald trump has apparently walked away from any effort to actively manage the crisis or use the powers of the federal government to stem the spread of the virus. a newly published report in the washington post cites sources in the white house as saying
7:19 am
that trump has not attended a meeting of the coronavirus task force in 5 months. this of course, makes the prospects for a president elect biden. much more difficult if the current administration does little or nothing to stem the spread, then biden will face a very serious and much more bleak picture. when he takes office as president, on january 20th, mexico has become the latest country to register 1000000, coronavirus infections, and saturday reported more than 5800 new cases, 675 deaths. officials in mexico city have imposed 15 days of tighter restrictions on bonus and restaurants reports in mexico, the staggering numbers. a reminder of the hue cost of the pandemic. more than 1000000 people have now been infected with the cobbett. 19 virus official figures
7:20 am
say nearly 100000. people have died the 4th highest in the world after the united states india, brazil. i'm angry that after all we've lived through in this world, some still don't accept the reality. this really exists. we're not actors and the patients here are dying. having partially lifted restrictions, the authorities in mexico city have come down again, closing bars and restaurants for 15 days. the measures come after hospital admissions in the capital and surrounding areas rose from 20 to more than 100 a day. because it's important that everyone knows that the measures we're working with are vital in stopping this outbreak from growing in the the battle against the pandemic is being fought in the context of continuing violence across mexico. both criminal and political. these residents in better crews demanding justice after their mayor was kidnapped and killed because investigators were asking that they
7:21 am
investigate this terrible murder the murder of our colleague, which should not go unpunished. we hold the national government directly responsible for this. while in the southern state of tabasco, they're clearing up and trying to rebuild their lives after being hit by hurricane eta why should i go to the shelter so i can get infected? no, it doesn't make sense. they don't think about that about the covert infections. many of us just want to stay with our family, us over some institutions are still open to the public, albeit in a limited way. they include mexico city's famous anthropology museum for performer, and we have to get used to the new norm. and we can't think things are like they used to be and getting used to it means that we should be very respectful of the right of others to be healthy. it's world renowned collection of ancient art and artifacts providing a poignant reminder of life as it was long before the pandemic struck. that
7:22 am
al-jazeera thousands of protesters have again gathered outside prime minister binyamin netanyahu is official residence, calling on him to resign. protests have been going on for months now. i demonstrators say he's unfit to lead. why he's on trial for corruption charges. is also anger over his handling of the pandemic, which is hits israel's economy. as a yahoo has dismissed the protest as, as anarchists and leftists. rival factions in libya have agreed to hold nationwide elections in december next year. the decision was announced at the u.n. sponsored talks in tunis, delegates are negotiating the appointment of an interim government's military represent says, have also been meeting in syria, it's in central libya. they're discussing the implementation of a cease fire deal signed last month of the train ascends as this report from the libyan city of misurata. now we just heard that the head of the high council of
7:23 am
state called initially welcomed a date set for elections. but i think a lot of libyans here are also skeptical that elections can actually take place. we saw elections the polity. elections take place here in misrata in september, others over 35 minutes, the polities scheduled to hold elections in western libya before the end of the year. but as far as national elections, there's, a lot of skepticism as in terms of if they can take place. now the u.n. the u.n. has, has said that this is a breakthrough. but also what, what the libyans have discussed so far is the general general kind of general issues coming up, for instance, you know, to stop the bloodshed, to unify all the state institutions to hold elections. but what they're discussing now is appointing a new government and presidential council. and this is where things are likely to get a little bit more a visit. because in western libya, after seen as
7:24 am
a war criminal, he has failed military campaign, cause over 125000 homes have been destroyed. hundreds of thousands were displaced. many died in the fighting. so any government that is seen to be pro have to, might be refused here in western libya and vice versa. any, any government that's seen as pro western libya might be refused by eastern libya. so really the next day or 2 is as is really going to tell us whether or not the u.n. sponsored talks will be able to come out with a real political solution in libya. reporters without borders is cautiously welcomes a decision by egypt's released 5 journalists from prison. that says much more needs to be done, only to have them have actually been let go. dozens remain behind bars. last month, a group of american and european politicians cold on president of just sisi to

a campaign which has seen her being maligned for being among other things. a woman with pro-west and political ideals, she says what moldova needs is a marked change from the problems that have held it back. i hope that people will believe in it because there has been so much disappointment in the past. we have had such an opportunity to so i was a 9 when there was a massive support for european political parties. and then these parties, unfortunately disappointed people because they got into correction. reforming one of europe's poorest countries has been a challenge that has defied previous leaders, corruption and poverty are the main concerns. there is also a demographic crisis caused by tens of thousands of people leaving to work in other countries every year. but it means that the moldova diaspora is an important voting bloc, and it's reflected in the numbers of people who mostly live and work in the west.
7:28 am
over the last 4 years, almost 150000, small citizens fled the country. because the way how this country is governed and the fact that this, despite the fundamental along felt motivated, their participation definitely shows the link with the country and that with the future of this country. this is a decisive election of moldova. it's a battle for its political soul, a choice that could see its ideals, staying east with all that russia can offer, or go west for a different view. so when i go al-jazeera, now archaeologists in egypt seminaries, the major discovery more than 100 years wooden coffins with well preserved mummies . well with dozens of gilded statues of ancient goats, or this is the discovery was announced in a car right next to a parent. as andrew shapiro reports buried
