8:02 am
mentioned, very early in the morning. most people would have been sleeping at home. this is an area which has mostly marked and storm construction. wait for construction quality at dad killed many of the b. but what trap done that a rule? many, as you mentioned, at least 20 canada military ellicott to and then what rush through that area to evacuate the most mediately injured and also to move and send out the equipment. this is i've got at a more region and the fact that dia craig, were there shallow one thought configurable damaged. it also cut off the key access road. so people out to was that the force this bond direct to work with dodge lights to dig through the rob. but however, we are told that military rescue teams at now dead, the national debt. the provincial de dr. management auto did not dare and dead. of course, probing to see what had happened on the ground and not many structure have collapsed

8:04 am
the shaking was very strong in the of the center area. her name is very close, you are only about 15 kilometers away from the abbey center. and so if you add that to the construction of the harms and structures in the area that will unfortunately cause learned damage. the fact that it happened at lag rent, diversely being that even exacerbates the damage and the injuries that would happen in the area. because it's in the mountainous region, the region will be brown to landslides, blocking the roads and hindering aid coming into the area. how does this compare to previous earthquakes? we've seen in this region. in the past 3 years, jessica sorry has recorded about 21, many to 6 and larger earthquakes within approximately 250 kilometers of the epicenter. so the regional knows large earthquakes and they, they happened from time to time. the most notable events that happened where

8:17 am
let me read it because she's really kept her cards mostly to herself and to her inner circle. it is also important that the vice president comes from the opposition party. she has been subjected to a tax of from the support. there's not just from the support this of the president, the president of the legal without the himself. she was a reluctant candidate. she was never really a politician. she was a rights lawyer who was only propelled to power when her husband died, who was interior secretary during the previous administration. she wanda, vice president and beat the son of a former president and dictator, fred marcus, all who is also going to be running for the presidency. so this is the service actually showing. she's 4th and the polls. but these are surveys that are seen to be preliminary at this point. and so pretty much it is an open game. but her announcement today makes her the opposition oppositions official candidate for the 2022 election. tell us about the other contenders and what the main issues are

8:20 am
. s. at the u. s. phases at, in terms of competition. this is a word that china says it does not like it is seeking, it says a good relationship with the u. s. as it stands at the moment. president biden has now made clear that he will continue the policies instituted by his predecessor, in particular that agreement that was reached in january last year. the so called phase one agreement, in terms of which china made certain commitments which president biden says, he is now going to insist that china meets also staying in place. so other straight tariffs that president trump, then president trump, imposed no sign that the u. s. administration is going to change that there despite repeated calls from a number of businesses who are believe i'd be suffering from that particular trade tariff, a policy that was instituted by the trump administration. so very important though, from both leaders to keep the lines of communication open to avoid any
