attack on and is really operate a tanker off the coast of all mun the us and u. k. have joined israel and blaming iran for thursday strike to ron has denied any involvement. 2 people were killed on the m. b mercer street. one was hit by what appears to have been a drone strike. us secretary state anthony blink and said it follows a pattern of belligerents from iran. hillary man lever it is a former white house national security official. she says relations in the region are only going 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 has been, there's been escalation now for, for a couple of years. we've had israeli attacked on iranian target,
2:24 pm
their nuclear scientists, their new killer installations, various other targets in iran. that israel either claim 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. if really put iran in a position where it had to take more of these measures into its own hands and it had to build up its own leverage in the international on the international military
2:25 pm
scene. and i think we're in for some real escalation on iran part. there's that there's been some fundamental changes in the international political, economic, and military structure, which makes is rarely shipping, in particular, quite vulnerable. ah, umbrella russia sprinter has been issued a humanitarian visa by the polish embassy in tokyo, after seeking political asylum. christina to mount sky had accused bela ruth of trying to force her home on a plane that's after she pub. this plea complained about her coaches, the i o c says she's safe and secure until the embassy of belarus has requested more information from japanese authorities. and richardson has more until you christina, similar sky, i should have been spending monday at these olympics competing. and it's 200 meters,
2:26 pm
a dies and folded, rather differently. now she says on sunday night team officials from valerie forcibly took it from the athletes village. took it to the airport and tried to get her on a flight back. it's about a roof soon. she got to the airport. she immediately saw how the help of japanese police also issued a video play on social media, asking the international olympic committee to intervene. now in the build up to that happening, she's been very critical of team officials saying that she'd been put in a very difficult position, was being asked to compete in a 4 by 4. and you're me to realize she's not prepared for. and the reason for that was that the flex federation, backing valerie, hadn't put other athletes through the required anti doping tests that had a tokyo and therefore they hadn't been able to travel here. now the i see said they were able to speak to her last night and again today and said in her words that she told them she did feel safe and secure. once the authorities intervened. and she'd spent a night in an apple hotel as a post on
2:27 pm
a flight back to batteries. not surprisingly, the international olympic committee now launching their own investigation. and that is starting with a request to the bell aris limping committee for their official version of events. and the u. s. star, gymnast simone bowels has confirmed. she'll go for gold on the balance beam on tuesday after previously pulling out of all 5 of her other. and the big finals balls withdrew from her previous events to focus on her mental health. the american has previously talked about becoming just orientated during her performance and mexicans have voted in a referendum on whether to prosecute 5 former presidents, president to undress my love as a door has been promising to fight corruption. he encouraged her supporters to take part, but criticise election officials for a fewer pulling stations. more than 40 percent of registered voters must have part for the result to be binding. but the turn not recorded so far has been far lower.
2:28 pm
you can get, 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 in this up. what about 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. vanessa newman is the president of latin american consultants symmetrical. she says the referendum is a way for the president to distract from his failings. well, he's holding it because it be great. his base and a mexicans are exhausted of corruption, right? so what he's saying is, is trying to seek these corruption prosecutions against his predecessors who are from a very well established political qualities. and he is for more than you know, 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
2:29 pm
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. 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 and increase of delivery of services to the pool and actually murder rate despite the pandemic, is it high? is it ever was under the drug cartels tell the president you seeking the so called prosecutions against already their statute of limitations have already run out. and in fact the, the wording is very vague. it's like,
2:30 pm
do you want reparations from 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. ah, ah, the headlines on al jazeera, at least 8 people have now died in a fire that are burned across turkey for the past 5 days. crews are still battling several wildfires and the popular tourism areas of antalya and mortgage and neighboring greece crews are also battling large wildfires that have destroyed homes and farms in the south. the flames have spread after breaking out near patrice on saturday. temperatures are expected to reach 44 degrees, sell.
