and if you hear that there's an evacuation, there's really not much else that you not much information that you receive after that. so a lot of people are scared or nervous. i spoke to one woman who was on oxygen in her r as she was trying to evacuate from south lake tahoe. and you know, she had just a handful of belongings on the back of her car. and she only had one question for me, which was you don't think the fires going to catch up to us, do you? and i just didn't have an answer for her. the type of creature got the headlines here on 0 taliban fighters opposed in military fatigues at the time, mac at campbell airport, just hours up to taking total control. the group is celebrating americans exit from afghanistan and then what it called full independence for the 1st time in 20 years . but taliban spokesman held a news conference at the airport a short time ago. and he's going to check the shot to meet no f guns will surrender
to force the way americans left us gun. this done as a good lesson for the future generation. they were damaged financially. it's a good lesson for everyone else. it's a historic day with no doubts. it's a free country, it's a sovereign country. if america was defeated, they could not achieve their targets through military operations. and on behalf of my nation, we want to have good relations with the rest of the world. well, just before midnight, local time on monday, the last american sea, 17 transport plane took off from the airport, ending 20 years of us military presence. and you, effective state, anthony blinkin says washington will work with a new african government if it says american national interests. we engage with a ton of under the past few weeks to enable our evacuation operations going forward . any engagement with the taliban government? campbell will be driven by one thing only, or vital national interest. if we can work with us, can government in
a way that helps secure those interests, including the safe return. my fears, but us citizen has been held hostage in the region since early last year. and in a way that brings a greater stability to the country and region and protects the gains for the past 2 decades. we will do it. but we will not do it on the basis of trust or faith. well, thousands of afghans still want to leave. the un security council has adopted a resolution to let them go safely. but it's not known if a taliban will comply to other news. now the u. s. has been removed from the european union's list of save countries as cobra. 1900 cases continue to rise. the u. s. recommending a pause, an old non essential travel america. daily hospital admissions in the united states have risen past 100004 the 1st time since last winter infections are soaring. in part due to the delta variance. with a headline, the news continues here on down to 0. after counting the cost,
say to in pennsylvania, back and talk to al jazeera, we can what gives you hope that is going to be peace because the situation on the ground seems to be pointing, otherwise we listened. we were never on whatever road to off migration. we meet with global news makers and talk about the stories on sierra ah clark, this is college you the call. so now is if you look at the world of business and economics and this week, like this one is miss, i'll turn the world events in you arms race. russia takes the lead in the new technology that can evade conventional defenses and can fly at 20 times the speed of sound. also this week, rwandan forces help clara moves and beats militants. insurgency will oil, johnson migrant workers return to the gas rich fields in the north of the country.
and we're in tuscany home to its leaves. cultural hotline has also become a target of organized crime. and then behind a toxic legacy. ah, so president vladimir putin dubbed the invincible and with good reason, russia knew hypersonic missile can travel at 7 times the speed of sound and can hit a target before existing missile systems have time to react its technology as well . beating with united states months away from a comparable missile. the talking to the miss all is nato aircraft carriers. and if a nuclear warhead is attached, it would only require one missile to knock out the carrier a week or so later. earlier this month, putin inspected a prototype lightweight stealth fighter plane. the only plane comparable to checkmates has it's known is the u. s. built f 35, causing more g a pallets. headaches for the pentagon was go hopes to sell the single seat a radar. evading fighter to india,
the united arab emirates into vietnam price at about $30000000.00 is cheaper than the $120000000.00 f, $35.00, and could open up new markets. i'm selzer a key part of moscow is pushed to increases. geopolitical clouds from the middle east to africa. russia is no longer receive a power having seated any pretence to that claim with the collapse of the soviet union. it lacks the global reach of the united states, but is still ranked as a world's number to military power. if a good reason, it continues to be a major concern to western powers and close european neighbors is demonstrated its ability to project force abroad with its deployments of forces to syria and where it can't directly send troops. moscow still managed to reach a battlefield through messen reason, the ukraine, libya, and central african republic. or russia's military expenditure increased by 2 and a half percent to 2020, to reach almost $62000000000.00, putting it behind india,
china in the united states. that's according to the stock home international piece, research institute ross, or is the 2nd biggest exporter of conventional weapons with 20 percent of the market. the united states maintains its lead with 37 percent. and despite the pandemic military sell held up according to the moscow times, its order book remained at a level of $50.00 to $55000000.00. in 2020, in 20192018. russia received orders for its weapons were $51000000000.00 and $55000000000.00, respectively. all right, let's get some analysis with dmitri stefan, which joins me now from moscow by stripe dimitris. define of, it's welcome to counting the cost. so 1st up, the, the technical challenge with hypersonic weapons is enormous, isn't it? was russia managed to get ahead of the game here? in russian case, we have invested a lot or even during the harshest year, so the 9200s in the strategic weapons. and now it's paid off, while in other countries probably there were not the investments were not as stable
as russian case. and now the important factor is that the, well, we must understand that hyper sony weapons are not but new actual research should date decades ago. so probably now what we give, what we've got during the last decades last year says that we actually achieve the reliable systems due to materials due to the hardened electronics you to communication. so things like that. why is russia developing this technology? the reason for rapid investments in the of in the vase in sick is actually us withdrawal from the abm treaty to the limit of missile defenses and hyper sonic weapons. i considered as a good tool to overcome any foreseeable michel defenses or take all me. so defense assets on a, dr. go scale. and now the reason why probably that was some speed up and deployment of for not yet will develop systems,
is the general deterioration of military political situation? because a despite all declaim, saw, like rush and aggression, and the greatest things like that. the actual reason for that is the russian sense of will not be with russian sense of meal dream theater. that it could be, would you solve for the u. s. central with some other states. sure, evidently is a dangerous weapons. what needs to be done to ensure there isn't any proliferation in this technology? i'm afraid that if we speak about proliferation, as in the development all this weapons in other countries or selling those, the only tool to do is to strengthen. they exist an expert control regimes like they miss out acknowledging control regime and probably some other instruments. and i might remind everyone that russia will be ahead of the m t. c r over the michelle technology control regime. the next had in 20212022. and i am looking forward to
see saw my initiatives that might address hypersonic work. but as well, on the other hand, it is impossible to limit their national developments in this field. and the probably, if we country, if these are that country will believe that these type of weapons are necessary to achieve, to ensure the security. but what about this is that checkmate fighter that we were just talking about, it's that is a real door opener to market to the check. my fighter is developed to actually help 3rd countries and cons better security and also enhances the are relatively cheap without wasting too much resources a and at least this is the idea. it remains to be seen whether the check made will actually fly both in terms of flying as an airplane flying as a project bought, i believe that the varies. there are reasons for some caution subdomains,
because as well definitely there is no comparable offer on the market at all because we have the f 35 single engine generation jed, but it is expensive and as any us weaponry, it comes with a set of 4. well, well, if you go obligations, something like that, and hyper on a weapons, old fighter jets, the straight out rule for russia is very important. most indeed than it's oil and agriculture exports. if we speak about the weapons today, export contracts also contribute to the well to the well being of the russian military industry. because obviously you can sell weapons abroad for great prices, then you need to sell them to the national armed forces. now what about afghanistan? russia and not a superpower, but it certainly wields a great deal of influence. and the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan will be perceived as a great victory for the right of answer. russia went, well,
i can't agree that there is a victory or advantage for russia because in the and we have another hold sport. well, it was there for a while, but now we're getting a quarter near borders border so far our allies within the a c. s. t o the collect the security threats organization within our partners of the c o corporation organization. and it also leads to a number of possible disagreements with india we spoke is donnelly's a china, which are all very important for russia and international policy. and actually, russian calling as well, so i wouldn't painted as in like black and white. don't like bad for you as good for russia. it's much more complicated. although, of course, russia tries to be a break to fin, called doug. so we, as they get it is then, and the early
a new leadership in august and russia try to keep things manageable. but it remains to be seen who will be they who will get the advantage until they say, greatest iteration. indeed, i just great to get your analysis dmitri the front of it. thank you very much. thank you. it was a pleasure. ah, no investigated. say one of the most powerful criminal organizations has been dumping thousands of tons of toxic waste and it's allegedly being left in one of the countries my scenic regions from tuscany is that i'm ready on the edge of a farm and tuscany, environmental police check for toxic run off from a leather tannery water treatment plant. it looks clear now i but this officer says until recently this plant was releasing waste into the river basket. the commander shows as footage of the same river. he says it shows,
haven't drank into one of italy's most powerful criminal organizations, allegedly dump tons of toxic waste from leather plants. and he showed us how they allegedly bury toxic mud under highways across tuscany. a wealthy area of italy considered far removed from historic mafia strongholds in the south, and only indulging a complex, say, it's a complex investigation going on 3 years now. we charge people with various crimes for taking part in a criminal conspiracy that's, that's aggravated by dealing with the mafia trafficking waste, including the environment. the police say suspects pocket a tens of millions of euros to clean up the byproducts at italy's leather industry by products that include heavy metals that can cause cancer. we drove by the tannery with mighty or recently who worked in a leather plants for more than 45 years. when i'm interested, they started. pollution has always been common. the problem is the mud and ash the
byproduct from the tannery should be treated and made harmless to use as landfill. but they didn't do that, but i asked mattie, or for this pollution was an open secret. here to show green, i mean pollution and cancer have always been considered a necessary evil. but that's the job. the tannery sit at the top of the food pyramid, the highways like this one that cut across the landscape of wineries and small farms where the waste was buried. we're here long and embankment where investigators found toxic waste buried under the highway. they took soil samples and coveted backup with his sharp police say they've found 10 such sites across tuscany, but they acknowledge there may be dozens of others across the region since we met with citizens groups who are pushing local officials to give them answers. we have a 1000 tons of dangerous, but here we know exactly what it is made off any it's exactly there.
so we are really very care mafia expert. renata scalia has repeatedly warned tuscan authorities voltage. i've been for years we've been raising the alarm to the mafia . here in tuscany, but it falls on deaf ears. the conventional wisdom says we shouldn't raise the issue because it seen a smearing tuscany honor and reputation. a reputation and more importantly, in environment. now, in need of being cleaned up quarterly this month of force including rwandan troops captured the ports of mockingbird. the prior from is mist insurgence could be a turning point in the 4 year insurgency, which was crippled. merchant, biggs, gas, rich, nor has foreign companies evacuated their stuff. over that time, thousands of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands have been displaced . catherine, so i has this report these are soldiers from was in big and wonder into port city of most seem what da, prior the region in nothing more than bix cobbled l god province,
was the last stronghold of an armed group. luckily known as all about the fighters had used it to launch attacks across the province. since 201712000 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced. the soldiers, he r updates, the commander said will now take less than a month to complete the offensive, and then tie a province of the enemy. how about was this most? what they put on? as you have seen along the way, most of the enemy are killed. we have killed along the way. so as i have disappeared, any 40 we are now planning to pass through doors. you and me pocket alone was a big has been struggling to fight against the armed group, which is believed to have ties with. i saw the town of paul, my 80 kilometers away, is a scene of the most recent major. a talk fighters laid siege for days in march,
killing several people, and causing many to free from their homes. it was one of several attacks that was planned for me was seen what the prior, so the town falling back into the hands of nothing forces is a strategic victory. wanda deployed troops in july to help more than big national army. the enemy was estimated to be between the 200-8000 but he always put it in this model. busy whoops, yeah, so. busy busy course on in the 4th over the ground. it is very important because it is hard to go over the terrorist. many people i feel afraid to go home and continue to leave rough income for the displace. no, i said i do not. we did not cause the conflict, we are suffering losses without knowing the cause. do we just ordinary citizen, when was am becomes in this region rich in oil, gas and other minerals,
say they want peace, they want to rebuild their towns. and they hope the truth will keep them safe enough to go back home. but what little is known about the rise of the islamist and says he has been attributed to inequality and the lack of jobs in a region which is expected to deliver $100000000000.00 in gas revenue. in the coming decades. ironically, the insurgency started after a $2000000000.00 loans, gamble came to light in 2016 for one of the poorest countries that represents 12 percent of g d, p. and according to independent development institute c, m, i, the scandal may have cost the country, at least 11000000000, nearly the countries in tar 2016 g d p is estimated the almost 2000000 people have been pushed into poverty. the off budget military spending involve companies that were partly owned by mozambique security forces. $500000000.00 was to be spent on petroleum cross boats and radars. $200000000.00 was to pay middleman.
$1300000000.00 a still not being accounted for. and that's a starting point of our analysis with jasmine ottoman jasmine is an africa analyst at north 14 strategies as technical based think type of joins is now from pretoria . jasmine overman, 1st off, has anyone been held to account for this missing money? no, no one is going to be, no one has been held the count and i don't think we must expect that it will be quite soon already. it seems like the extra edition orders on hold. we must keep in mind. they are high profile people linked to this case. so there is a question mark over what will happen next with those who have been arrested and whether indeed he will face justice. a good question. i mean, all eyes are now on the motion beacon judicial system. and i think that's where the problem lies, both from shot africa and the united states is healthy at trial. it will be
when it comes to be people being involved and will be used as a diversion from those that actually benefited from a massive amounts of money that started the downward spiral from mozambique and financial position. i do not think at the end of the day, we all go truly see that day will be a conclusive judgment and prosecution and incarceration. all those that benefit that just like we have seen for the past. how many years you know that be with organized crime, it is really big for refinement, finance minister who's, who's in the frame. and the considers you say is that he could get off lightly compared to what might happen if he would say, extradited united states, where investors will conduct a millions of dollars correctly. and i think that is why i think though, issue of united states comes down to diplomatic relations between shut african
united states between mozambique and the united states, and been also shot united states. and those names being mentioned and companies involve thomas exposure, do the action you want in terms of the benefits that obviously would have gone to specific individuals. and as far as the ongoing violence is concerned, the most big cause part of the south african southern african development community . yeah, the president was slow to get military support from some historians, allies, lights, and bob were in south africa. why was that? i do believe that we need to realize they walk on to me at play. we need to understand that they are contracts with boss amounts of money at play. we need to understand that, carbo doubt, god, who has the story called conflicts of b shows, gaining from organized crime syndicates. so by involving said it by getting
control, it has to be accompanied by accountability. how much is the government willing to accept responsibility for what they have contributed to the forgotten cob del garden? and i do not see a shift in that mindset. i do see a shift that development is needed. that when that they need to look at just certain crucial aspects in terms of bringing people back to the land. but in terms of accepting responsibility and accountability, we seen the government in my put to sol reluctant in putting the costs on the table . dimensions. rwanda, what do they get from this? i think one must start off by saying that they've made a difference jayce, but they've made a difference on what i call the low hanging fruits. that is to say the areas we
expect have been to move in. but if you look at the deployments each, all palma muslim brought a prior, although non gaudy can be added now with the 10s indian border that clearly the g sector and the security corridor group gains paramount importance. hinge, we going back to france and we gain back to the strong, more than likely is contributing excessively to the financial deployment in cobb l god to with intending to get the l. a. g shaped doll with a 26 percent interest in this drawing as quickly as possible and what that expanding strange interest and that isn't undeniable reality. secondly, ad crucial aspect is how this plays into the audience in wanda dave
immediately had journalist, the company came immediately, they were reports on the successes, they have gained excess of numbers to start off with. i see that down playing the numbers now, but base also a message back home of idea, faint force in control capable of dealing with a situation where and work that ball string, the position of president, gama. and it's interesting, you mentioned processes, because the comparison, we can look at frances counterinsurgency efforts in this a whole which actually have to, you could say that violence is increase. what i guess, if you look at the hell and they're trying to withdraw, and it is not as easy, and if you look it up garnished on just to throw that into this whirlpool of political agendas and interest. but if you look at, in terms of stepping into saw hell was quite easy, stepping out, he's not that easy. so for france to make in years all grew wanda,
and i hate there were proxy as he does connotations, but late use the word proxy for the lack of a better word without any direct involvement. gives thing that need breach of behind the scenes pressure influence and leave each other than the most bacon government which stole prioritize the l. n. g sector as any border to economic development which it is, but not the way it was done. the last 34 years just went overman, appreciate that. thank you. it's a pleasure now to high profile sexual assault cases have brought to china as me to the movement back into the spotlight. chinese canadian popstars chris wu is under investigation after being accused of rape follows an outcry over an alleged assault at the tech jauntily baba to treat a year reports now from aging. video of
a woman protesting in her workplace canteen was viewed hundreds of millions of times. and chinese social media. the employee of tech giant alibaba had been silenced after accusing her boss of raping her during business trip last month. security cameras recorded her supervisor entering her calvary several times. the women took the social media after management failed to act. alibaba, human resources team or slow and indifferent, they didn't take it seriously. i was shocked because alibaba is such a big, famous company, but i'm also used to it because these incidents happen again and again in public outrage around the case prompted a police investigation. alibaba slide the many question and also several executives for miss handling her complaint. the incident came the week after the arrest of chinese canadian celebrity chris, woot. the pop singer, actor and variety showed judge has been accused of luring under age women for sex.
more than a dozen brands, including louis the tall and poor, she have severed ties with ruth, and they have been cause for him to be deported. both incidents have turned the spotlight on cases of sexual assault and misconduct in chinese workplaces. it's also given birth to the countries me to movement, which has been stifled by authorities in recent years. she concerns of sparking social unrest. the might is wouldn't rights activist who is detained in 2015 for protesting about sexual harassment on public transport. she says women working for chinese companies often suffer harassment and are forced to drink during business events. alibaba has a serious problem. i would say there's a culture of haunting women or using women as sexual resources. this phenomenon also exists in many of the big companies, state enterprises and ethan and g o. c, d, 's. in recent years, china has introduced laws dealing with domestic violence and sexual misconduct. but
active is said the poorly defined and difficult to enforce. police are often reluctant to interfere with what are traditionally seen as private matters. alibaba says it's reviewing company guidelines and has set up an emergency hotline for employees rights group. say they hope the alibaba and chris were scandals will encourage more victims to come forward. and for employers to change their work cultures, that is i'll show for this week if you'd like to comment on anything you've seen, you can tweak me, mcclark al, jazz. please use the hash tag a j c to c o. drop us an email, come to the cost at algebra dot net is our address as plenty more online at algebra dot com slash cdc. that will take you straight to our page. entire represent you to catch up. but that's it for this edition of kind of cost. i'm a clog in the whole team. thanks for joining us. the news on al jazeera is that the september
