3:07 am
are ukraine and we will do the rest. us all the weapons necessary and we will fight for our land are out. he was specifically asking for fighter jets, which the u. s. has ruled out for now senior defense officials tell us that right now, part of the problem is that russia has the abilities shoot down fighter jets pretty much over all of ukraine's airspace. so they are looking at providing ukraine more sophisticated missile systems than they have thus far in hopes of keeping the airspace contested. another big concern for us officials fear that russia could use chemical weapons. but the pentagon spokesman made an important point on sunday morning. it is of the russian play book that, that which they accuse you of their planning to do. now. again, we haven't seen anything. indic indicate some sort of imminent kemo, chemical, biological tack right now, but we're watching this very, very closely. on monday, the national security advisor jake sullivan,
3:08 am
will be meeting china's top diplomat in rome. he gave a preview of what i'll have to say. we have made it clear to not just be jing, but every country in the world that if they think that they can basically bail russia out, they can give russia a work around to the sanctions that we've imposed. they should have another thing come in, because we will ensure that neither china, nor anyone else can compensate russia for these losses. a continued push to isolate russia, heard it economy an arm ukraine, in hopes it is eventually enough to change russian president vladimir putin plans and possibly put an end to the daily destruction in ukraine. going al jazeera washington. as we mentioned earlier and independent filmmaker from the u. s. has been killed in the cranial town of european french when i worked as a photographer for the new york times, but was not on assignment for them. when he died. kias regional police chief says
3:09 am
when i was shot by russian forces, another journalist was wounded and taken to hospital as talk about this more now with carlos martinez, the la 7, the he is the program director of the committee to protect journalists and georgia live. now, from new york, thanks very much for being with us. now this is something that has journalists, we never want to have to report on when one of our colleagues becomes a casualty of war, but unfortunately, that is what's happened. so if i could ask you firstly what you know about what happened and what you are calling for as far as accountability. so for either the so what we know, those details are still missing that it seems bends and almost in a car that has a cross check point. right after doing that, they were not as talked, he will set out and killed the result of that attack. and another knowledge was
3:10 am
bonded and these spots of his testimony and fullness. we are still missing details, including who is responsible for these kellen, but we know already a couple of things. we are important reminders. one of them is that you're not as under international from anytime are low or civilians are never do. they may target in a conflict. so, and that happens that amounts to war crime. so that's why we're looking at right now in this case. can i ask you, do you believe the journalists are being targeted in this conflict? and the reason i asked that is because this, this comes a few days after a group of sky news journalists were, were shot out while, while attempting to report to near, near keith. and they were, they survived, and they were evacuated out of the country. but it turns out that they were, they were the, that the gum and were part of a, a saboteur, russian,
3:11 am
recognizance squad. so what does i mean? do you think that there is a trend here? i guess is what i'm asking. what we are very concerned about the trend, we are very concerned about your knowledge being attacked with russian troops and don't know as being sub good 2 different types of violence are really in many cases in which we are more so far. we are also very concerned about how the word child with children, you know, many places under attack. so it's a very dangerous situation. and what we're seeing based on that train and the overall dynamic war is that civilians being constantly exposed to violence. and as i said before, you're not as an international internal law, our civilians, none of them. i mean, certainly asked for in your list can be targeted. and that amounts to work on to really prove that a client will need the evidence. but the dynamic and the attacks are extremely
3:12 am
concerning, as the, as the war keeps going. and to what extent does this highlight the dangers that the journalists face in covering a conflict like this? unfortunately, we know the general tab. austin paid a steep fries for reports in the front line. so this is a word sound. they're doing their best to prevent and mitigate challenges. but we're seeing a war with tribal violence and i said that many players under attack, so they're very exposed to the present time. and again, it's very important to re thread who's responsible for that. so ukranian and russia and need to do everything they can to protect civilians. i'm in put in journalist, especially right, and chips all already being report that are responsible for tax and you're not covering the more you need to stop this. all the,
3:13 am
the people accountable for these crimes and of course do their best to protect it, including john carlos martinez, still a cerner. thanks for being with us. thank you. are still ahead on al jazeera when we come back colombians head to the polls to choose sentences in a vote that's expected to set the tone for upcoming presidential elections and trying to resolve chads and long running conference talks between rebel groups and chads, entering government in cock ah ah look forward to with sponsored point cutaways now 5 days ago, it bit less than that it was about 10 degrees above average for most a central northern china. well the colds come back

3:17 am
a sign of progress in talks between russian and ukrainian negotiators. my hon has more on that from keith on sunday. ah, the ukrainian president's advisor issued a statement saying that he thought progress could be made in talks. and he said that the russian side had become more constructive. you also can said that we will not concede in principle on any of our for positions russia now understands this and is not russia is now beginning to talk constructively. now, as that statement came out, there was a statement from the russian side as well saying that talked to the ukraine, had made significant progress. and it was possible that the delegations could release a joint statement soon. well, that was met with skepticism here and here certainly amongst the people i spoke to . a lot of people here are hunkering down they loading up on food and water. they're preparing for the worst. they are hoping for the best,
3:18 am
but they are preparing for the worst, or they feel that this idea of the, of a joint statement is very vague. they don't know what that means. and also a lot of our political experts that we've been speaking to throughout the day, suggest that this may well be the beginning of the end of the piece talks. but it may not be the beginning of the end of the war. that is to say that the talking is still going on, but it may be that there is still a lot of talking still to do. in other news, iran has claim responsibility for a barrage of ballistic missiles. the struck me the u. s. consulate in the northern iraqi city are then bill iranian stated, he reported the attacks were aimed at what he called secret israeli bases and said they were in retaliation for an air strike in syria. they killed 2 of its revolutionary guard members. a u. s. official says the consulate, which is unoccupied, was not hit a satellite channel near the u. s. consulate went on air shortly after the attack,
3:19 am
showing shattered glass and every on the studio floor. some of ingest aid has the latest from baghdad. this is the 1st time that we're hearing of an attack using ballistic missiles into or out by from iran. the i r g c has claimed responsibility, but they're not explicitly said why the card thing that is in response to evil deed by israel. and if it doesn't stop our warning, of more attack and deadly attacks, what we know so far from official who can spoken to us on the condition of anonymity is that the missiles had around midnight iraqi time on around this new post. the building which is going to be one of the largest building of the u. s. department in the region. there was no material damage. there was some damage to nearby buildings including the this television net but the private television, the k 24. but so far, there have been no casualties. an investigation has been ordered and it has been
3:20 am
a plethora of of reaction after this. we heard from the prime minister of the semi autonomous goodish reason mister bizarre calling it a terrorist attack and saying this can be there can be no pretext to attacking iraq . the sovereignty harry force it is in west jerusalem with more on israel's response to the missile attack. there have long been these reports of an unacknowledged israeli presence in kurdistan. there was a report in the iranian media last year about an attack, supposedly, by iranian forces, against such interests and against my side individual something which was largely disregarded here in israel, and certainly no comment about that so far. and the kurdistan authorities themselves a saying that there is no such base inside israel. however, it does go to the, the wider picture of the pretty constant israeli attacks against iranian interests
3:21 am
inside syria. and the fact that there haven't been, it seems any casualties or any material damage that potentially gives away as some kind of de escalation. will that be and is really response if there hadn't been any direct israeli interests struck or will the very public accusations and the very to the unprecedented nature of this ballistic missile attack for that specific reason given by the iranians. will that mean that some kind of military response potentially inside syria, again, will be forthcoming, relatively senior iranian military figures were killed in strikes attributed to israel just in the last few days. it also goes to, to further emphasize the need that israel places on its actions inside syria. one of the reasons that the prime minister natalie bennett has been publicly very low to criticize russia over its invasion of ukraine in recent weeks. because there is
3:22 am
essentially tacit rational approval of those already a not challenging of those is radio strikes in syrian territory. a dozens of people have been injured in violent clashes between police and protest. this on the french islands of corsica. demonstrations have been taking place for days after a prominent nationalist figure was attacked in prison. yvon colona is in a coma, after being strangled and protested, hold the government responsible. it was imprisoned for murdering a politician in 1990 a vote counting on the way in columbia as legislative elections. 39000000 people welcome to cost balance and sundays contest. the result could set the town for the countries presidential election just 2 months away. columbia has always been ruled by the political right proposed show that a left wing party stands a real chance of winning alessandra and petty reports from cali where major anti
