israeli operated tank off the coast of oman, u. s. and you have joined israel in blaming iran for thursday strike to ron has denied any involvement. 2 people were killed all the in the massive streets when it was hit by what appears to have been a drone strike. us secretary state antony blink and said it follows a pattern of belligerence from iran. hillary man leverett, tis a football whitehouse national security official. she thinks, relations in the region. and let me go to get worse. i'm afraid we're in for a period of a glitch or a tension, especially in bobbing iran and israel. there is no real diplomatic channel or framework to discuss or handle these tensions as, as there was when we had the j. c, p o, a before president trump pulled the united states out of it. that has really taken diplomacy out of the picture. and so there are been, there's been,
10:17 am
there's been escalation now for, for a couple of years. we've had israeli attacked on iranian target, their nuclear scientists, they're nucular installations, various other targets in iran, that israel either claimed credit for or quietly said that they don't know who did it. so there's been escalation now for a period of time, and i think it was inevitable that we would see iranian around in retaliation and, and, and increasing escalation from their part. even though they denied that they are responsible for this attack. i think it was inevitable and i think we are unfortunately in, for a period of increasing tension and confrontation. it's a poor relationship between iran in the united states and one that was really broken by president trump when he tore up the iran new killer deal that the united states had negotiated painstakingly with iran and with our partners. it really put iran in a position where it had to take more of these measures into its own hands. and it had, in that sense,
10:18 am
build up its own leverage in the international on the international military scene . and i think we're in for some real escalation on iran part. there, there been some fundamental changes in the international political, economic, and military structure which makes is rarely shipping in particular, quite vulnerable. 2 people have been killed by gunman as a funeral of a has been a fighter south of lebanon capital bay route is not clay, who was behind the attack and holiday. they opened fire during the funeral service for commander who was killed at earlier. and what lebanese media was saying was a personal vendetta. mexicans voted in a referendum on whether to prosecute 5 former presidents present. and the rest loop is over though has been promising to fight corruption. he encouraged his supporters to take part, but criticized election officials. a few polling stations more than 40 percent of
10:19 am
registered voters have taken part for the result to be binding. but the turn not registered so far as the fall lower to confirm the most important that the important thing is ending impunity in this country. it's been going on for far too long. there has to be justice. there has to be democracy. we're in. this is what we are in disagreement with presidents. they leave and leave us with nothing. another president comes in and they leave him with all the responsibility will ahead of the election. officials that the process would itself be free from corruption, which pretty much is as it gets taken on the pop in our consultation will be carried out within the technical specifications of quality, professionalism, and personality and legality. it's expected that the results would be obtained as a maximum of 24 hours after the close of receiving the pallet tabulations for this it only been as president of latin america's consultancy, a symmetric a. she says the referendum is a way for president over at all to distract from his failings where he is holding
10:20 am
it because it invigorates his base and a mexicans are exhausted of corruption, right? so what he's saying is, is trying to seek these corruption prosecutions. it goes, his predecessors who are from a very well established political qualities. and he is for more than now which is a newer political party. and it's basically sort of a leftist ploy against the right. but actually, it's unnecessary because you can just prosecute people for corruption once they are out of the presidency. so he's holding it really to distract from his mishandling of the pandemic. and from the fact that the economic development has not been there, even despite his sort of changing major infrastructure projects like the airport and, and that he keep centralizing power around, sort of a certain lease. there are his lead and centralizing power around the oil company.
10:21 am
so he is not actually deliver what he said he would do, which is anti corruption and improvement in the living standards of the pool, an increase of delivery of services to the pool, and actually murder rate. despite the pandemic is as high as it ever was under the drug cartels tell the president you seeking the so called prosecutions against already their statute limitations have already run out. and in fact the, the wording is very vague. it's like, do you want reparations for victims by people who have, you know, from people who have roamed the people of mexico from before. and of course anybody would answer yes to that. but there is no set mechanism to very strange political ploy. i don't think that it will actually lead for any benefits for the mexican people. supporters of brazil's present giles, nora rallied in several cities. the backing his proposal of me for paper balance to
10:22 am
replace the electronic voting and extra selection. while the key yet kemp has more readers in error, the thousands of brazilians rallied in support of brazil's president jade, both some out of their backing his plains that brazil current electronic voting system is not to be trusted. it will don't feel that i believe both in our was elected president and the 1st round of the 2018 elections and not in the 2nd round . like the official results, say, politicians and judges must respect the worth of the people who want paper ballot, not just digital ones, someone in washington, but going also follow the president has offered no evidence of problems with the current system that has been used since 1996, but his supporters believe him, they want to paper print out of every digital ballot cast and they're putting pressure on congress and the supreme court to change the system. but 11 political
10:23 am
party in many brazilians question both. so natalie intention was getting the people want to change the electronic voting once they pay the site to us. what the majority of brazilians wanted, there wasn't, this is just the government's way of distracting the people from what is really going on. like the more than 500000 did by covered 1900 recent polls shobel. so now to faces defeat by former president with the national ruler, the silva, if the contest next year's election in both scenario has repeatedly said he will not step down. if he thinks there is fraud. had any idea that this happening after the opposition has stage 4 nationwide project. 7 for president right above but not as well. so not as popularity has waned in the face of increasing inflation, unemployment and poverty race. analysts believe he is following in the footsteps of former us president donald trump most. and i was trying to do the same thing that
10:24 am
trump has gone on in the election. united states, he wants to have the adam, it's necessary to claim that to actually read and try to validate them. resilience still have to wait more than a year to cast their vote. both on out of supporters and opponents already testing each other on the street monitor and i give i'll just 0 rio de janeiro police officers guarding poorly vaccination teens in buckets on her. been targeted in 3 separate attacks. and the latest assault gunman on the motorcycle shot him killed an officer returning from duty with the vaccination workers in the shower, in the north west of the country. no medical workers were hurt in the attacks boxed on a gun on all the only 2 remaining countries in the world where polio hasn't been eradicated . well, let's get more this qual, hider, who's lived with us, from the shower in the north west of the country. and despite polio being one major
10:25 am
issue, millions of children do to receive those drops across the country. engage to be brit dive. granted 3600000 children and 68 districts across the country. 179000 polio luck, urge tens of thousands of police men. and they said that campaigned richards broad weight rate, because then the boss dollars or dozens of police men and 4 year work they've been targeted mostly by that that he gets all of on budget on budget is some good news because the reported case only one and for the same period last year, there were $66.00 gated code at george that did the god improvement the government and determined to wipe out polio. but i've got that senior jalyn did not to mention the risk of our tag. and the fact that the situation and i've run it on adults so
10:26 am
quite unstable, which means that a lot of people that may move across the board, what complicate issues, but that governments indeed confident that in a position to control and perhaps will be able to wipe out the boys wide range from parker san lee buck. it sounds like a study government's hope for kamala, over, certainly a longer period of time. but there isn't another problem, isn't there? 19 another back. seeing that the, the government is trying to sell to the public at large that this is full well for their benefits. they must take it indeed, that is a need for a campaign country wide to try to convince the berlin that you mention. it becomes even more challenging when you're dealing with a been deb make because the over at 19, the polio vaccination program was suspended for 5 months. and so that showed that
10:27 am
challenge is not judged for the polio immunization, but also to get rid of a large number of buckets on is that it in dead interest and in the interest of the country that they should get a job showing data challenging time. and of course, the government to convince people that they should come forward and take seriously or continue to monitor events with you in the north west of focus on the shower as the day progresses come out to the 4th lodge cruise ships saw no band from entering the center of venice. environmentalists have been pushing for the move for years. adam rainy has more from the island city. picture postcard perfection. tourists are back in venice, but they won't be arriving anytime soon on large cruise ships. it follows years of debate about banning mega cruise ships to protect venus's lagoon ecosystem that the
10:28 am
bait became much more heated with the arrival in june of a towering 90000 tons ship. the government finally announced the ban in july. after threats from unesco to place venice a world heritage site on it from danger to list, the italy is promising to cover last wages for thousands of workers who rely on the cruise industry to keep them afloat. you know what movie? we hope the government comes up with a way for us to continue a subsidy might last a year or 2, but this decrease has ships won't pass through anymore. we need certainty for our future today. now which cuts right through the heart of venice passing by st. mark's square. and it's this very artery to which the huge ships will no longer be able to pack. but that doesn't mean they'll be completely blocked from the venetian lagoon. the plan is to have large cruise ships into the lagoon through a back channel and dock at the mainland industrial port of margarita. the problem
10:29 am
is the port isn't ready to receive crews. passengers like city council medical gasper, the net, they grew up along dennis's canals. he welcomes the band but sees it as a distraction because a visible part of the iceberg, visible deeper is the big ships about many other products and the big ships are not the on the one. and what are the problems like that the city is dying in terms of being a living place with $0.50, living in side and not having to commute that to get the job. which cannot give it a chance to live in the city where we are just that to me that may control as part of an organization that lobbied for the band. she seated as part of a larger push to focus on long term sustainability. all of that would be done not to shift the focus away from accommodating tourism to really fulfilling the needs of the local residents who the fans also on the value of
10:30 am
a versity of the lagoon and on the well being of the whole environment. here the venice rose as a commercial powerhouse centuries ago to the great benefit of its people, finding a balance that keeps coffers full and residents from fleeing will take more than banning cruise ships from its waters. adarine al jazeera venice. ah, just bear with me said robin in doha, reminder of our top stories. the african president has told parliament a state of aggression is being imposed by taliban forces who are talking several cities of god. he said the us forces are withdrawing more quickly than expected. in the past 24 hours, the taliban has moved in from the outskirts to the heart of kandahar and lush. got gone. that been government strikes and fighting and none the ha and tyler bonds form a strong hold off canada. how they one of the main border crossings with buck is.
