10:12 am
remember or we need to remember that in 2019 holly for have to launched a military offensive on tripoli for 14 months and that was really devastating. so a lot of people see him as a trader, as someone who has aligned himself with someone who destroyed their homes and displays hundreds of thousands of people. but we're here now that the situation has come down and, and we haven't been able to confirm, but we are hearing that fed. tabitha has left left tripoli in order to keep them to keep the peace. now the un support mission has said that they urge for call. they are the to preserve the com and, and urged all parties 22222 not to not to not further the tensions and the escalation. and so we're going to have to see as a story develops in the coming hours. molly, thank you very much for that update malik china joining us there from the damage in

10:22 am
dust will be bad for the eastern province of saudi into cats are as well, especially when you consider for doha, those wind gusts will be about 60 kilometers per hour. it's not just wednesday, this will carry through into thursday as while this icon here that's that easy and dusty skyline that will be dealing with temperatures though are above average down another spot. we've got some high heat is south asia. once again, we're cranking up the temperature, so we put the colors on here, darker the red, the higher the temperature and look at this is far north is i'm ritz, are coming in at 43 degrees. so heat wave warnings and alerts or once again be issued. so that's on wednesday. let me take out toward friday now and here we are in boxed on. i think once again, we're going to see some temperatures in the fifty's. this includes for new op shot . no watch at 50 degrees. jacob, a bad at $49.00, but even as far south as karachi, 40 degrees and as far north as $45.00 in low hor, that's the forecast. so another blast of heat to go fully. thank you jeff, for that update. let's get an update now on the situation in baghdad,
10:23 am
mahmoud abdel, why is there for us? how are these repeated sandstorms, mahmoud affecting lives and livelihoods in the rocky capital? will test really have a heavy toll on a life here on civilians, on a people on facilities it remember now it's much, much better than the past couple of days as you know up. it started in a sunday midnight's sunday late at night monday early morning and that have been an orange and red haze is of dust and sense and sweeping over at many areas across iraq, including good at 7 major cities in central and southern iraq, including get the cap bottom about that in these provinces, authorities have ordered to shut down of governmental an official institutions
10:24 am
accept health facilities. health was in this is that received according to the health minister, around 4000 cases, suffocation cases, those who have had a difficulty of breathing because of this sand stores. as you know, this has been caused by, according to material religious by a climate change, namely the lack of rain in the past couple of years. and also the decent to vacation of larger sweaters of lands in iraq. as you know, this recent sandstorm has been coming from a notice from north africa of going over city a heading halt. they resort area in close to the borders with the iraq and then sweeping over many areas in, in, in iraq, a clinic with including this, these 7 provinces. as you know, this is the 8th, our hardest sandstone to hit
10:25 am
a rock since mid apron. it has also moved forward to enter iran. now today in iran, officials say that some official institutions have been closed on because of that stand store. thank you for that mahmoud abdougla had life arrest there in baghdad. north korea is crumbling to deal with what's believe to be a major coven 19 outbreak. 6 new desk were reported on tuesday with a for the 270000 people showing fever like symptoms. it's either came john own is blaming his health officials for being irresponsible in their handling of the crisis. nearly one and a half 1000000 people have tested positive since the end of last month, and 60 people have died. rob mcbride has more from sole south korea less than a week ago. this wasn't officially a thing. it didn't officially exist in north korea. and now we're talking about a total number of cases of people with symptoms with fever. some people who have recovered around about one and a half 1000000,
10:26 am
and it's very difficult to really get a grip on just how far this might have spread throughout the population. because of course, there is a real scarcity of testing in north korea. and famously, this is a country that is said for 2 and a half years that it hasn't officially existed. and an awful lot of focus is now being put on some of these events that we've seen in the past weeks and months where north koreans have been going out. they have been holding mass, military parades through gang for important anniversaries, gatherings of party members. and people looking at those and wondering whether, if this virus has been spreading through the community, maybe as the on the con virus silently where they out any symptoms that these of all the mass spread or events that are now coming to manifest themselves. certainly kim jungle has now declared an emergency has been seen to be chairing meetings. there's been official video of him visiting pharmacies, criticizing his own health officials, calling in the military and calling for more pharmaceutical products and
10:27 am
therapeutics had to be passed out to the population. but obviously, what would have helped would have been vaccines and north career is one of the only 2 countries in the world that has not had vaccination campaigns. and his course is very vulnerable because it has a population already somewhat weakened by malnutrition and relying a problem upon a medical system that is shaky to say the least families of victims of the latest mass shooting in the us are renewing calls for restrictions on gun ownership, 10 people were killed in buffalo, new york on saturday in a racially motivated attack. have been nearly 200 mast shootings this year in the u . s. at 10 a week. yes, reson joe biden has praise the bravery of police officers a head of a visit to buffalo on tuesday. please say the 18 o suspect deliberately targeted black people and was driven by so called replacement theory. al jazeera alan fisher explains. it's the deadliest mass shooting of the year in the us and police say the know why the accused gunman did
10:28 am
it. this was about killing black people as many as possible. we can't sugar coat it . we can try to explain of a way, talking about mil to an illness. no. this were of domestic air river em perpetrated by a long white supremacy. before the shooting rampage that left 10 dead, the 18 year old gunman posted an online screen claiming white people in america were being replaced by people of color. it's cold replacement theory. what we're seeing now is a subculture in elastic reservoir agreements. it takes all comers, and some of them will get radicalized because you're a racist and year old conspiracy theories. attending to all went from colin and liberate the stage to stall on elections by african americans to african americans stealing our culture. and our school, once the fringe idea pushed by racists,
10:29 am
it has become a popular theme for conservative media figures who reach millions. now i know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on twitter become literally hysterical if he used the term replacement. if you suggest the democratic party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots with new people more obedient voters from the 3rd world. but they become hysterical because that's, that's what's happening actually is extraordinarily serious in part because of how far it's gone. and how, how deep into mainstream culture this or the these type of a white supremacist. i'm talking points of have gone right because we hear them on, on fox news. we hear them coming out of tucker carlson about which a lot of people are talking about right now. but we also hear them out of republican politicians. it's not the 1st killing by sale, proclaimed white supremacists, pittsburgh charleston, south carolina, and even charlottesville, when right wing extremists chanted about replacement theories as the marched of all
10:30 am
been touched by the violence. a pool released last week suggested one and 3 americans believe there's a program underway to replace the was born in the u. s. with immigrants, for electoral gain, a theory that is becoming more extreme. and at the same time, more mainstream. allan fisher, i'll just either. oh, ah la again, i'm fully battle with headlines on al jazeera, ukraine's military command says the mission, just to defend the as a found steel plant is over. more than 260 ukranian fighters have been brought up from the last stronghold of resistance in mary. a pole has been fighting in libya. capital between rival armed proves it comes after the prime minister appointed by the eastern base parliament arrived in tripoli. fatty bershana planned to take control of the government from the rival.
