5:07 pm
c r. c. a couple of hours ago on our news, our show and the representative was telling us, look, we got people on the ground, but we were finding it very difficult to get a clear picture of what's going on there. there's no communication per se, i'm the only u. n ha. the un agencies do have a skeleton stuff. they've moved much of their stuff away from to grind only because they don't have resources. they don't have diesel. ah, they're not resources to help or assist those that really need help. but again, the job downside is saying it's a t p left that's preventing them from helping those people that need help. and the other side is blaming the children side off, far preventing them from hitting their and providing aid. but i was in a far in recent weeks i. so the truck's heading to to grey. i saw them cross into the to grey side. but you just have to wonder if they are really sending enough
5:08 pm
resources to help so many people that need help. according to the un 91 percent of the population are in need of for emergency aid wine, almost 1000000 are and family condition. so the need is overwhelming and how much the wi fi or other agencies could help is on open debate. okay, believe it them anything, samuel guest, true for talking to us from attis. the united states has added the israeli spyware firm. and as o group, a russian software company and 2 other foreign businesses to its cyber activities, blacklist the commerce department in washington says, is in response to their role in developing spyware and trafficking in malicious online tools. alum fisher jones is live now from outside the white house, so allen, the store is still developing. what do we know? while essentially, the commerce department says to take this action when they think there is a threat to americans, and they clearly see these companies as posing the threat that 2 companies in
5:09 pm
israel, the any so group and can to route they develop spyware. that was used to target journalist embassy workers, businesses activists, academics. and so they've decided that those 2 companies have to be added to the list, also added positive technologies and russia and c, s i c at from singapore, the traffic cyber tools, which allowed people and companies and countries to access the personal information of people all around the world and we've seen many of those malware attacks and just in the last year or so, particularly here in the united states as well, that this decision to put them on the list is made by a company that a committee that includes not just the commerce department, but also state and defense and energy and sometimes on occasions treasury. the biden administration says that this shows that human rights is right at the heart of their foreign policy by taking this action. now this lest was created back in
5:10 pm
1997. it was really in then to try and stop companies abroad and places like a rag obtaining the materials that could be used to develop weapons of mass destruction. but clearly, over the last 10 years or so, much of the focus has moved on to cyber crime. and what can be done in cyberspace that could be a threat to the united states and others. and so what happens when they're on the list is that these companies are not allowed to import any u. s. technology that might help them develop. and also other countries are not allowed to import it and then pass it on to these companies. perhaps the most famous company still on the list is walkway the chinese technology and mobile phone company. no, they have for new members to add to that list to joy while way they're allen. thank you very much. ah,

5:13 pm
. and i think that the tension between the developing and develop world is one of those tensions that you will have below the surface. now, as this conference moves to slightly different phase, the leaders have done that bit. they've started events, they've given it a boost at the beginning. now it's the hard, detailed technical negotiations that are going go go on in all of the many meeting rooms with the many thousands of people that are here comp. and then by the end of next week, that's well, we'll know whether those negotiations are born through, and i suspect get near near the end to give them another extra push. you're going to see many of those leaders flying back in still to come here on alex's era. the way it was ended was plainly that in the french ambassador in kendra accuses australia of defeats in the simmering dispute that canceled submarine deal . and by the strength and electricity work as a angry about

a $100000000.00 debt. the blackouts affected areas near jerusalem ramallah and bethlehem leader ever him is our ramallah correspondence. she joined us today here on set in the studio in doha. why is this happening right now? because palestinians cannot generate their own power. so 90 percent of their electricity, they buy it from israel and in the end they need to pay those debts. by the way, this is a very high rate that the palestinians say they can pay because israel sets the rate of for city based on the living expenses of the people in israel. but then when the house and you know, 40 cannot control a lot of lands in the past and in territory, that means that they cannot insure the old people pay their bills. the collection rate officials tell us is around 85 percent top. so when people don't pay their, their bills, israel says at the end of the day that they need to collect the money and they
5:19 pm
threaten to take it from the taxes they collect on behalf of the palestinian authority. but so many areas under the control that the palestinians in effect, electricity is rationed in some areas. anyways, this is going to kind of evolve and being a double whammy then for how fair they are trying to generate their own power. we've seen a lot of them installing solar panels to try and, and be more self reliant on themselves. but israel also prevents that. they don't have control over the land past any authority, even if it's in principle in taking care and is in charge of the palestinians, but effectively on the ground, the palestinian authority has no power. and there are lots of areas that even the past and security forces can get in to kind of ensure that people are paying their bill. no, thank you very much needed to him. normally ramallah correspondent today with us here in bo, state electricity workers in sri lanka, are protesting against a power deal between the governments and a big
