6:04 am
rainy g 0 roam a global corporate tax agreed by d 20 lead his aims to discourage multinational corporations for dashing profits to countries where they pay little unknown taxes. lauren's cott lakoff is a professor of economics and boston university. in the us. he explains who will be most effective this will actually be good for a low tax rate havens because they'll all be able to collectively raise their tax rate up to the 15 percent minimum and not have to compete with each other in this race at the bottom so, you know, is a good for the, the big countries, not necessarily because it should be less of incentive for companies to move outside of the u. s. or major or higher tax regions. and we have all these countries have signed on, including tax savings. so there must be some benefits. one of the benefit is that they're not competing with each other. if you get my drift in and you're also going
6:05 am
to be able to get more revenues, they're still going to be lower tax. they're still going to be concerned to operate there are just won't be as big as it was. it's not an end. it's a termination of tax havens. i think this race is the bottom problem of operating in countries that have very low taxes to attract capital. that's been a problem for the big countries and then the small, the tax savings are competing with each other. so they're not getting much revenue . and so this is, i think, a win win. in general, it's not my ideal tax reform to tell you the truth, but it's, i think, better than what we have. the united states on the european union have agreed to east tariffs on steel and alam many imports. the deal to result role the trade dispute was announced at the g 20 summit. yes. will now allow certain metals from the you to enter duty free. it avoids you retaliatory measures on us products which were due to go into effect in december. former president donald trump introduced
6:06 am
the levies 3 years ago. philip bell has the latest motion to what this does is it gives president biden a number of wins at 1st of all allows him to show off on the world stage that the u . s. is back that it's making friends again, which is what a lot of the d trends he's been about. it's about him showing that the u. s. is moving away from that isolationist approach, that the previous administration favorite in a number of ways. it allows him to also avoid these e u retaliatory tariffs. remember they would you to kick it in a matter of weeks, they were going to double duty on a number of things. like for whiskey like harley davidson motorcycles, all american products and this would not have gone down well domestically. it also allows him to show off his green credentials. we know the president biden has made a tackling climate change, a real tenant of his presidency. he's going to be at the cop summit in a matter of days. this allows him to show that they're working in the u. s. with your rep, which is known for producing what you might call clean metals, as opposed to china,
6:07 am
which is allowed use as co powered furnace is so can make cheaper metals, but not necessarily battles that are great for the environment. and also on the subject of china, it allows him to show some presidential muscle against china, which you guys will go down well with some quarters here in the united states. now, in terms of the actual logistics of this agreement, the announcement has to be made. we've had an announcement of an announcement that is coming at the moment. the terrorists are 25 percent on steel, 10 percent, all minion, we believe, but it's probably going to be something more like a sliding scale. so depending on how much the input level is, that will then affect how much the terrorists, aw, so it will be all relative. and again, the amount will be this buffer zone, this green zone of what we think will be $3300000.00 tons a year. allowed in but again, those details are due to be made public later by president biden. us live on the live. crucially. these metals will have to be made in the a use that means they are melted and poured in the you. it means that countries
6:08 am
like china, like russia, like south korea, can't make them than send them to europe and pass them on saying they were made in europe because they had a few finishing touches put on in europe. but as i say those details coming and becoming house. i said, since they don't say another 3 people have been killed in protests against the miller, she cared. hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets, soldiers, jews, tear gas and blocked major roads. and have been multiple reports of gunfire. hebron morgan reports from caught him a protest that's been days in the making. thousands of people gather on the streets of her to demanding a return to transitional government. something they say was rob, from them after the military coup on monday. i know some of them. we went to the street because we reject the military rule and we reject authoritarianism. and we categorically reject all the behavior of the military council. i don't know my be
6:09 am
not one another would log on. we want to topple the security committee and bring it down. we don't trust these people. this is not their 1st coup. we need the world to know that the sudanese people are living under oppression and are being beaten. our voices are not listened to because there is no coverage and there is no internet. ah, they're risking a lot. days of protests in the capital, letters treat to st. battles with the military and demonstrators killed. with the internet, cut off organizers used mosque flyers and graffiti to reach people. ah, the military also blocked the main road to the airport. the plant root of this march saturdays protests were met with tear gas and live ammunition. what is really concerning is the vast array of military security actors that are on the streets. there are just incredible set off out of security sectors that now patrol the streets. no sense that they are necessarily taking orders from
6:10 am
a central spot. and i think that i know that diversity of different meals are actors is really worried. ah, these demonstrators are demanding that prime minister, the lamb dukes cabinet, be restored. it was toppled by general abbot for that pro hahn. he also does all sovereignty council established after the overthrow of omar bashir 2 years ago. some political parties have supported the cool o 11 ship hon. you were hon. says he will hold elections in july 2023 and then hand power to the elected civilian government. with the takeover has provoked international condemnation. the u. n. m. u. s. has called on the military not to intervene in the protest. regional and international acts as have been urging general hong to reverse his school and was so the transitional government which he dissolved on monday, but many processes here. so even if that happens, it's their faults short of their demands to completely hand over power to civilian rule. the people on how to toombs treats call it a power,
6:11 am
grab and demand. a returned to a democratic process. he bo morgan august 0 or 2 rebels from ethiopia, tig righ region say they are now in full control of the strategic town of jesse in the neighboring a power region. the government is contesting that claim fighting has moved into the em horan afar. regions are to rebels, re took control of to grey. the conflict has been going on for more than a year. what im davidson as a senior ethiopia analyst at international crisis group he says, taking control of dessie would be significant for the t p l. f. i think it's important as it opens up the routes to and i just have about is another major sort of obstacle. so it's a great forces. it's also a large and significant hara. and it also allows to see great forces, easy, a passage to the east, and perhaps to take control of the booty road, the main trade route. so it's important and those are special. so
6:12 am
a large psychological below this is to be great for doing the take control of it. and i think, you know, they have a decent amount of control, but they're still fighting ongoing and, but it is part of the steady games on the battlefield for the 2 great forces in july, we do not know whether they will face stiffer resistance on the other fronts in northwest, around gone and these types of areas, but it does look like that too great for to have a significant military ascendancy where that actually takes us in terms of the politics of the situation. i mean, of course, a whole other question yesterday, quite a significant but a further call to the people. they're not just a military to defend against the great 40. so you can see this guy the threat. but other than those types of options we have at how being used again, cities is great over recent weeks, but that's not likely to have any significant minutes we effect. so at some point, the federal government may have to look at the option of negotiations as the
6:13 am
pressure increases because of the 2 great advantage. a security source at aiden's international airport says at least 5 people have been killed and 30 injured in a blast in southern yemen. a car bomb exploded near a security checkpoint close to an airport hotel. still had on out a make or break moment will tell you want the steak as well as gather it and running on empty of fuel shortage in china as well. second largest economy to ration diesel. ah. with news of the u. s. recently has been focusing on the east coast east coast floods because of a shoot system has been running really intense rain up at coast. now it's spreading
6:14 am
outward slowly to be honest, but what you saw on the ground was enough to give you something like ne, hi flooding away from virginia out through maryland, and quite possibly in the next 12 hours or so. up in may. now about time we get through to the end of sunday has gone out through new brunswick in towards nova scotia left behind. much dry weather was a breeze. it ought to be getting or bringing cold weather him. it is not extremely cold, not just yet. the bigger picture for monday, you can see there's snow up in winnipeg and it tries to come across the great lakes, but toronto hangs onto 11 degrees on the pacific coast. we have more rain on its way. nothing like as the intense storms we saw only a few days ago, and probably welcome right down as far south san francisco or beyond. now that cold air there is penetrating to southern northern states. we're really do much to toronto till the end of the week. we get on to 6 degrees by wednesday. i think they'll be snow showers by friday, but that's canada. done the caribbean. huge amount of rain just beyond the smallest
6:15 am
and the flux is probably going to be further west in nicaragua. ah. pollen culture because really absurd. losses. bankruptcy bailouts, when will retail light industry will probably begin washing terms. diminished influence in the last of america. the 1st floor becomes the 1st one trillion dollar auto baker, where of this world, this is the talk industry counter recalls on alger 0 with bold, and i'm told stories from asia and the pacific on al jazeera. ah ah
6:16 am
ah, you watching out as a reminder of our top stories as active as say 3 people have been shot dead in see don during protests against men as she cru, hundreds of thousands demonstrated in what's being described as the most significant challenge to military leaders since they seized power on monday, the us any you have agreed to ease tower, so in steel and alam, minium imports the deal to resolve the trade dispute was announced. the g 20 summit . us will now allow certain metals from the eve to enter duty free lead is of the wells top economies have agreed to introduce a global corporate tax for multinational companies, a meeting in rome for the g 20 summit, where they have been also discussing the climate crisis well, the focus asked is, need, is, will now shift from brain to glasgow. as
6:17 am
a un climate summit gets underway, a meeting has been described as a make or break moment for the planet. net. clark is in glasgow to say there's a lot at stake here in glasgow. busy is an understatement, the science tells us what needs to be done, and we'll see in the whole, behind me over the next 2 weeks. if national leaderships have what it takes to step up, the world is overheating, and extreme weather is already hitting hard. and to demonstrate the importance of this conference, we returned to every year in greece scene of those devastating wildfire in the summer weather still picking up the pieces sh. in early august with temperatures at unseen highs, wildfires ripped across southern europe. the land was parched and the fires quickly spread, nor the levia in greece was a hardest hit. inferno lasted for 2 weeks, thousands were evacuated. today you can see what's left. the devastation in this area was total. people are well used to annual wildfires here,
6:18 am
but not on this scale. not with this much last thousands of hector's of forest and livelihoods just incinerated. and because of the fires a new threat, as the rain comes so do floods and mudslides, the fires have destroyed the lands, natural ability to withhold water, to act as a flood defense system. the non periods of intense rain, the water just cascades of these hill sites. so they're using the dead trees to shore the soil and the land intact. it is hard, exhausting work, but vital to preserve what's left and encourage regeneration of the forest. a big part of ebay as forest economy has been obliterated. cost as i own use, livelihood comes from his bees who make honey from the resin of pine trees, or used to. i feel sad that this once green forest has been burnt,
6:19 am
and i find it difficult to figure out what we'll do and how be keeping can continue to exist on ever. we will not be around when this forest is once again able to give us honey. so for us, our area has died. collecting pine reson was an important money owner for farmers like georgia's agnostic but not in the more. he also lost a fit of his goat, her to the fires. across the island, more animals died than survived. but the destruction was great for farmers, buildings were burnt, animals were lost, and grazing land has disappeared. in other words, what we had here was last many years need to go by so that things can return to how they were helping people around the world to adapt to and mitigate against catastrophic events. like this is a big part of the climate conference in glasgow. so what a success at cock $26.00 looked like the science tells us we need to prevent temperature through rising beyond ideally one and a half degrees celsius. but the 2021 production gap report shows that current
6:20 am
government plans will produce more than double the amount of fossil fuels required to make that happen. so in glasgow, we need a strong declaration. they commit to net 0 missions by 2050, as well as big reductions by 2030. this has been a seismic event that has changed lives perhaps for a generation, but the forest will come back because nature always does. if humanity allows it to . we're right now, the omens here in glasgow, not good. just this week. we heard that even with the latest global commitments to cut emissions, we're still heading for $2.00 degrees celsius. a. remember, the target is one and a half degrees, and the $100000000000.00 a year promised by rich nations to developing countries by 2020. well, that won't arrive now until 2023. trust is a limited commodity here in glasgow and it will be a long, hard battle to reach the agreement the world. these polls have opened in japan's

general election as vouchers decide whether to keep the country's newly appointed prime minister. the governing liberal democratic party has been led by from york as she does since he won a vote just weeks ago. a sluggish economy on corona virus recovery is expected to hit the policies popularity, whether the l d. p can keep its majority is unclear. china has started rationing diesel, a nation wide energy shortage sled to a surge in demand for the fuel and a rise in prices. many truck drivers say they're not able to compete complete long distance routes and deliver vital goods. katina you has a report from basing these truck drivers are used to criss crossing china driving hundreds of kilometers every day. but a nation wide shortage of diesel fuel has changed that. are you a girl? me? oh, i'm scared to leave beijing and the dr. long distances,
6:22 am
some petrol stations have run out of diesel fuel. the machines are closed. 2 days ago, i drove south to whole bay province, and a man in paddle stations didn't have any. the shortage has been accompanied by a sharp rise and prices. since january, the cost of diesel here has increased by about 30 percent abyss petrol station. huffman is limited to by the 200 meters of diesel fuel. but outside the capitol. the supply problem is much worse than some supply with having to wait days to refill. there have been long lines of vehicles at petrol stations and china's southern and eastern provinces. due to rationing. many drivers say they can only refuel for one day's journey, which means cross country deliveries are taking longer to arrive. china is in the middle of a power crisis that is triggered blackouts. in many cities, shortages of coal and natural gas have led to a surge and diesel consumption. factories and businesses have turned to diesel power generated to maintain operation draining supply. the 2nd reason is probably
6:23 am
because a lot of these are its being re routed to the our culture sector during this harvest season. to basically support our grain, trying and to prepare for planting, winter cross. and on the, on the supply side, basically the domestic supply for diesel hosting going down because china has the sporting a lot more diesel to the rest. so to, to the rest of the world, some estimate china's diesel stock pals to be at the lowest level and at least a year. environmental crackdowns on crude oil production in some regions have worse than the shortage. the government has asked chinese refineries to increase production and imports, but this would be enough to contain the shortfall expert sworn that scarcity of diesel is likely to last for months and could worse an existing problems in the global supply chain. katrina, you out a 0 teaching for you. case prime minister says he can't wool out taking legal

action against france as a post briggs at fishing dispute continues. the rift got worse early this week when france seized a british vessel. paris is threatening to block ports and increase checks on boats on laurie's. if the u. k. doesn't grant war licenses to french fishing vessels. the british government says that will put you in a breach of a trade agreement. po brennan has moved from london. the route over the fishing rights dispute has at least 4 and off the front pages of the case, major newspapers on saturday. but the exasperation over how this disputes has been allowed to fester an escalator over the past 4 days remains bars, johnson is in is in room for the g 20. and he's been speaking with the president of the european commission, actually on the land reiterating what he describes. his puzzlement that he has got this far. he told us live on the land that he raised concerns about the rhetoric of
6:25 am
the french side. he told her that the threats by the french were completely unjustified. that is the threats to prevent british catches from being landed in french ports. and he told reporters before he met miss what mrs. wonderland, that basically britain would do, whatever is necessary to protect you. k interest, but at least that wasn't an escalation of the kind of rhetoric that we've seen earlier in the week where one of his ministers was saying to complain that game threatening a further ramping up of tensions with, with france over this fishing dispute. and i think they route to de escalation and all of this will be to dial down the verbal rhetoric and the posturing and perhaps go back to nuts and bolts and facts and figures. because that seems to be where the disagreements actually lie written in the read after the vondell and encounter between bars, johnson and the land. as you said, the 98 percent of license applications by
6:26 am
e. you vessels had been approved the 92 percent not. but that doesn't actually tally with some other statistics that are around which say the jersey is approved just 16 out of $47.00 application. so if the 2 sides can actually work out what is fact in the sense of statistics and what is not, then there might be a little bit closer to try to work out where compromises might be found before tuesday deadline. columbian police have sees more than 2.2 tons of cocaine in the tour. a city of catania to india's office is found almost 2300 packages and a container bound for ra saddam in the netherlands. seizure is worth $100000000.00 . kilometer authorities have confiscated more than $302.00 tons of cocaine. so far this year. to load are linked as shown, days received about 2.2 tons and gross weight of cocaine. hydrochloride that the drugs came from the port of curriculum ecuador. that was the final destination being the port rotterdam in the netherlands. this drug was possibly going to be

6:28 am
serve diminishes. yep. okay, well the last element, every day you go to the market and you'll find the price today is not the same as the price yesterday. it's very common. prices rose 3.5 percent in september. more than 50 percent over the past 12 months. isn't a good m. okay. no rush. what we'd like is that people can buy what they need to know. they'll be able to eat nothing more. just the basics, the things we need to live a normal life. oh yeah. not a month. over 40 percent of argentines live in poverty, or more than half of children under 14 years old, don't have enough to eat this for many. as the last resort, the offer of a bowl of rice which will lock will contain something you tricia's to get them through the day. because inevitably, the fight just to keep going will continue to morrow. the government last week for the prices of 1400 essential items in the battle to control inflation. it is
