4:05 pm
to change the advice change the rules they are giving about mingling amongst family christmas and whether christmas can go ahead in its limited . but relaxed way most many people in the u.k. are living under the hot the highest possible tear of covert restrictions there is a possibility being talked about that those searches may be toughened even more and that say travel across the country might be outlawed for a brief period of time. i think what this new news does about the the this new strain is gives the government an opportunity to correct what they might have been thinking was a mistake anyway and relax in the regulations over christmas now they can turn to the country and say the situation has changed this new strain alters our calculations and we think that actually christmas card go ahead as planned but for
4:06 pm

4:07 pm
doses expected to be shipped out of the medina laboratories and warehouses on sunday more vaccinations occurring on monday now what are the best what are the differences between this approved vaccine and the pfizer that we've long talked about well they are both 95 percent effective which is great news and another thing that makes this modern of vaccine slightly easier to handle as far as distribution is that it does not require an ultra cold storage and it ships in smaller batches that means that these that will have an easier time making it to more remote places also this distribution of the durned vaccine is being overseen by the federal government under the authorization and money of operation warp speed that was not the case with pfizer all said and done this could not come any sooner for americans
4:08 pm
with more than 300 people killed from this pandemic and projections of another 200000 americans dying within the next 3 months of according to the university of washington overall of course 17000000 cases in the united states vastly more than any other place in the world kim. how did your pastor there live for us in washington d.c. thank you protests are expected in sudan to mark 2 years since the uprising that eventually led to the removal of president obama of a shift from office thousands of people in the city of a took to the streets in december 28th to protest against high unemployment poverty and corruption within days the demonstrations spread to other cities including the capital khartoum by april 29th teen president omar bashir was overthrown by the military 4 months later and after accusations of excessive violence against protesters the military agreed to form a civilian led transitional government. ever morgan is live for us now on the
4:09 pm
streets of cult sume haber how are people marking the day. well it's a bit of a celebration but it's also mostly people angry about the fact that the economic situation which has led people to take to the streets 2 years ago has not improved the inflation was a around 50 percent when people took to the streets in december 28th. 4 months before former president i want to pursue was also there but now it's up more than 240 percent so a lot of people are saying that this government has not fulfilled its promise of improving lives for the people unemployment is still high poverty is still hard so they're saying that their main cause of sitting to the streets better economic conditions better living conditions has not been achieved yes there has been new legislation but have been passed by this transitional government which came to power in august last year in a power sharing deal between the military and the civilians there they say that this has created some kind of optimism in this and in the. transition.
4:10 pm
they haven't felt any changes in their day to day lives and therefore they are taking out to the streets right now to protest against the government but they're saying that's largely because they feel like the military is still in charge of this government right now the transitional government is led by civilian and military and. with the military believe for the 1st half of the transitional period so people are saying that the military is largely tired of the economy of the day to be affairs and that is why there are families and is not complete. can you can see obviously the people out there on the streets behind you i'm wondering if some of the perhaps positive developments for sudan like getting off the u.s. state sponsor of terrorism list to people feel like that anyway has that at all affected the mood in the country. well in the 1st days of an ounce america 1st time. around dollars.
4:11 pm
have group in the 1st time it was quite. you know it's all him and her from the prime minister at the time in fact improvement. and that people lived through but then again at the on the current day to day affairs this has not reviewed and not for years and it's kind of ok to be nice to losing and to follow your confidant it's still dropping like a pleasure austin increasing so people are saying that well they know this is a good step while they're not at the transitional government has really worked hard on back and with other legislation that has provided more freedom and more rights for women and people generally that has not changed their day to day affairs that has not improved their economic situation the very things i am as much as they are glad that there has been improvement there has been changes business not mean that their demand for freedom justice and stick them out to the streets in december 2820

4:13 pm
change and right now 11 of them were told. they are headed towards the camp. it's all gone now with the reason why they're they're angry and upset despite a peace agreement and put in place in 200-1000 is that much of the peace agreement they say had not been put in place where they're looking for is positions and government positions of power and the current government of iraq who's running for reelection in days to come but also funds to start the militarization or did you know the dropping of weapons of these armed groups and that's what they're looking for and that's what they say hasn't happened they don't trust the current government who are taking steps towards peace in the meantime the spokes person of the government has come out he calls this. a movement or this statement. a coup attempt to destabilize

4:15 pm
stake in this election they're looking for someone that can deliver peace and stability in a country that has been really rocked with instability the u.n. forces on the ground have been accusing the but in the past of sexual violence against the people that are meant to protect the armed groups are we're told hold some of the population round them and then there's the involvement of outside players the russians recently have been increasingly involved in. training the central african republic forces to try to regain ground this summer they've launched operation against the armed groups and that has really angered some of these. leaders of armed groups that signed this document against the government but also we've seen. friends of former colonial power also very concerned about the situation there especially that we've seen that the former president. kim who is
4:16 pm
under u.n. sanction for for men saying ethnic and religious violence back in the country and the government accuses him of being involved in this latest attempt to destabilize the situation so there's a lot of pain because the neighbors of central african republic so we're talking about countries like cameroon. well they are the consequences of this conflict in their country with large numbers of people from central african republic fleeing the country kim thanks for that update there across developments in central african republic. coming up in the news are a look at how the park rangers in zimbabwe using eyes in the sky catch punches. kids get past 15 bodyguards to shoot the former governor mexico. and the boxing world gets ready for one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year

4:19 pm
is an order of 1800 children were casualties in this conflict imputing 553 children who died and this is information only after september so this is quite common in afghanistan unfortunately a very dangerous place for children to i mean there's the conflict element but afghanistan also is 2nd in migration only to syria and wondering with so many people who are trying to flee or to move what does that type of disruption do for children and for young people what other kinds of dangers do they face. so the children including young adults. are desperate some of them are trying to cross. some of the some of try to cross into europe is you know with the. crisis in the military and in a lot of the. your children from afghanistan so it's difficult you know to mysie of. you know traffickers and
