10:16 pm
has been sentenced to life in prison by a ukrainian court for war. crimes are deemed she, she married, admitted killing an anom civilian in the northeast. in sumi region, he said he'd been acting on orders 21 year old trial is the 1st of its kind since russia invaded the country 3 months ago. floods caused by pre monsoon range, causing havoc in india and bangladesh. thousands of people have been killed in tens of thousands stranded, many still waiting for help. policy and officials formerly fall the case at the international criminal court over the killing of journalist sharina blacklist. she was shot in the head by is ready forces while she was on assignment in janine earlier this month. when our china has won the u. s. president not to underestimate beijing's resolve on taiwan. joe biden said he'd intervene militarily to defend the island from any invasion spoken toko, on an asia trip. he hopes will family relations with allies from their own. mcbride
10:17 pm
reports president joe biden came to japan to bolster one of the u. s. is most important alliances in the asia pacific at a time of multiple challenges across the region. but he may have worse and one of those regional flash points with less than tactful answers at the main use conference as he's done in the past. it came in response to a question about whether the u. s. would respond militarily to a chinese invasion to take the island of taiwan that bay ging regards as a break away territory. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that, yes, you are. as a commitment, we may the u. s. dance on taiwan has been far more ambiguous in the past. and the white house immediately had to release a statement, trying to clarify the u. s. position. but what sounded like a threat to china brought this response. hello, monkey,
10:18 pm
crucial the taiwan issue of purely china, the internal affair, which won't stand for any foreign interference issues bearing on china's co interests, including the serenity and territorial integrity that is normal for compromise or concession and no one should underestimate the chinese people's firm resolution. this is turned into something of a distraction in what is meant to be a strong show of unity against russian aggression. and also against increasing military threats from china. as well as increased missile testing from north korea . as the only nation to have been subjected to an atomic attack, japan is deeply concerned by north korea's development of its nuclear arsenal. but it's also troubled by the increasing assertiveness of china with ongoing territorial disputes in the east china sea. yardi title touched it as a major carry, china has significant responsibilities, also an economic field to revoked that responsibility. i think it is important for japan to work with the united states,
10:19 pm
to encourage china to collect responsibilities. and according to international rules, i say, i think such attitudes aren't, aren't biden, has also used the trip to launch the indo pacific economic framework. an initiative aimed at safeguarding and developing production of critical commodities like advanced semiconductors and setting universal standards for labor and environmental protection. it's very, very clear that from america's perspective, china is now the biggest competitor on all fronts. and as a result of that, what america is doing now is building alliances across the world. this visit will culminate in a summit meeting of the leaders of the so called quad security alliance, led by the u. s. and seen as a further attempt to constrain china militarily in the region. rob mcbride, al jazeera tokyo, now the united nations is saying that more than a 100000000 people have been forced from now homes around the world,
10:20 pm
mainly due to violence persecution, and extreme weather. this is more than double the figure compared to 10 years ago. the 100000000 number amounts to more than one percent of the global population. on the 13 countries have a bigger population and that figure a number of people displaced, jump from 41000000 in 2012 to more than 79000000 in 2019 driven by growing crises in places like syria, yemen, the sa hill, and venezuela. the current of ours pandemic is an important factor in this. it's worse than some pre existing dr. isn't was a violence in afghanistan begin a fast. so the d r c, if you're p a, me and my and nigeria in 2021. now push that number to 90000000 by the end of 2021. this year has seen the warren ukraine. 8000000 people have been displaced within the country. and more than 6000000 refugees have fled across the borders.
10:21 pm
but the conflicts isn't the only dr. and natural disasters account for most new internal displacement. driving 23700000 people from their homes in 2021. mohammed vow has this report now. the united nations has sounded the alarm bell on the issue of world refugees. it says the number has exceeded 100000000 for the 1st time on record. in the words of the u. s. h e r. commissioner philippi granted, the figure is sobering and alarming in equal measure. but since the war broke out in february, the rate of refugees and displaced people has been accelerated as early as march 2 point 5000000 ukrainians left our country. the u. n. is expecting the figure to exceed $8000000.00 by the end of this year. guarantee says that new crises should not distract us from the old ones. i think an important message, and you mentioned it yourself, is that there is not just ukraine,
10:22 pm
that we should not forget all the rest. first of all, because ukraine has an impact on many other fragile situations, making it more for making them more fragile food security, energy crises, price increases in stability. and then this, in turn, can cause more displacement by the end of last june, the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide rose to word 90000000. it's the result of violence in each opiate or can a fossil myanmar nigeria, afghanistan, the democratic republic of the congo and other countries. as the number of refugees across the world increases relief agencies become less capable of handling the situation. the un humanitarian office, o. c, h, a warns nearly 18000000 people are going to face severe food shortages in the next 3 months across the african sire region. the officers appeal for $3800000000.00 for
10:23 pm
relief has generated less than 12 percent of that amount so far. ah, the palestine, one of the oldest refugee crisis goes on with no end in sight. other refugee crisis have been around for decades as well. governments and international organizations. what now need to think of a new way to address this an antique problem hammered fun. alicia, a sandstorm in iraq is forced airports and schools to close streets in the capitol . bagdad mostly empty, is a thick blanket of dust, covered the capital and other cities. dozens of people have been hospitalized with breathing difficulties. 40 say the increasing frequency in sandstorms is related to climate change and rack or low rainfall. i'm would up the why it has more this from baghdad. life is getting back to normal in better dad's streets, following the sand. the storm that hit the country on monday, forcing
10:24 pm
a closure over spaces in airports and also a forcing a closure of estate institutions, schools, universities, and many other state facilities. now, many people were sent to the hospital to receive medical treatments because they suffered from suffocation because of the dust. thompson. in fact, dozens of thrones of dust were carried over by the de sandstorm over many provinces across iraq. this is the lines sandstorm to hit the country since the beginning of april. it has been war sitting in iraq for many reasons that is related to the climate change dissertation. also lack of rain or lack of or sorted of water delivered. it's because of the damming pro bro programs by both dirty and iran that have the springs of the main sources of water in iraq, the tigris and euphrates rivers. now cases of monk,
10:25 pm
monkey pox are rising around the world with some countries introducing strict isolation measures that anyone exposed to a confirmed infection expert say quick action is needed to prevent a global outbreak. john hall reports scientists and health agencies are trying to understand why monkey pox is suddenly spreading more widely than ever before been well studied in the african region. we've seen a few cases in europe over the last 5 years just in travelers. but this is the 1st time we're seeing cases across many countries at the same time, in people who have not traveled to the, to the endemic regions in africa, endemic in parts of central and west africa. in the past, it was generally confined to isolated cases outside that region. now, with evidence of community transmission via post bodily contact across many countries, they'll be investigating whether the virus has become more transmissible,
10:26 pm
nashville, and so i can knock on this and up as well. the question is whether it will develop like previous monkey pox outbreaks. we must take into consideration that the way the virus spreads could mean it changed. so we must react quickly and decisively now to contain a global outbreak. and most of the symptoms are generally mild if on finally, and often clear up on their own. but there are higher risk groups among the young and immunocompromised. so the european center for disease prevention and control is warning member states to gear up for possible vaccine distribution using remaining supplies of the vaccine that helped eradicate smallpox in the 1980s. the only concern, however, no one is signaling alarm for the broader population, the likelihood of breath is very no. however, the likelihood of further spread of the wireless through close contact for example, during sexual activities among persons with multiple sexual partners,
10:27 pm
is considered to be high in a world still racked by the coven. 19 pandemic societies have an advanced understanding of viral spread and protection. testing contact tracing, self isolation and basic hygiene our household concepts, so containing a disease like monkey pox should be relatively easy. jona whole al jazeera, indonesia is resuming palm oil exploits, ending a 3 week ban was part of an attempt to bring down rising prices. government says will impose a new policy to ensure 10000000 tons of oil remains in the country. jessica washington reports now from jakarta into these is north kelly, mont, and region palmer oil farmers prepare for business as usual. as an export ban comes to an end. gov and look at the more that the export band caused a huge loss for us to get the price for so long. it really hits us farmers.
10:28 pm
indonesia is the world's largest palm oil producer. pommel exports had been banned for 3 weeks as a way to help ease domestic problems with the price and availability of cooking oil . while there's been rising international demand, the government will also re introduce a domestic market obligation for palm oil producers, forcing them to sell their products locally at a set price. but more a pump on from the dealer bang from what we've seen in the field. the price of bulk oil is slowly declining as the cooking oil supplies becoming more abundant. summer experts criticized the export ban as misguided. it also set a precedence a bit and they got the precedence to abdullah o booster countries. if b a d have some of difficulties in the domestic market. the just a cut off. good. the export or, or badly export, dan is it would make good a global foot security is in disarray. farmers held regular protests against the
10:29 pm
export ban and say the government needs to find a better solution in the future. so i mean, they got him in the had a dock so we see that there is a mistake made in the chain of distribution. it seems like discounted, didn't realize that cooking oil is a primary need, minimal. they give it to all private sector companies, like millions around the world. indonesians are noticing they're paying more for the essentials. shop is, and business owners say the volatility of food prices is making life harder for that. cooking prices have fallen. the export ban was introduced, but there's still higher prices. people i used to the government had initially planned to keep the export band in place until prices reached $0.96 per liter. that target has not yet been met. out to get it back. we had to raise our prices because the price of meat is going up and the price of cooking oil is still up. it's very difficult for us. the government says it will continue to monitor prices to make
10:30 pm
sure indonesians can afford the essentials, but many here say they are already struggling. jessica washington al jazeera jakarta. starbucks is announced that it's leaving russia after nearly 15 years. a coffee company joins fast food truck giant mcdonalds, which has also started moving its trademark golden arches from its outlets and the country burger chain and out last week it was selling its restaurants to a local buyer who operate under a new name. donald says, running restaurants in russia is it no longer consistent with its values because of the war in ukraine. it's arrival 30 years ago is seen as a sign of change for the soviet union as it opened up to the west. and its exit is also being viewed as equally symbolic. ah.
