10:01 am
sir, i'm afo's us not doing more to stop years of corruption. ah, now afghanistan's taliban government is appealed for more international aid. after the worst, earthquake and 20 years struck a remote region in the southeast, at least 1500 people are known to have been killed. many more injured. it's feared hundreds of still traps in the rubble. rescue and relief teams are struggling to reach the disasters or on the magnitude 5.9 trans. struck early on wednesday in a rural mountainous area in tactical province. i 7 family members in one room, 5 in the other and 4 in another. and 3 in another have been killed in my family. i can't talk anymore. my heart is getting weak. one of the best clever. when the roof
10:02 am
came down on me, i thought i had been shot by a gun. my body was in pain in burning. i tried to get up while i couldn't live or i, let's go live now to alley lot sci fi. he's in the eastern province of pac thea. good to have you with us. so we know authorities are pleading, as i said, for more international aiden. how are they guessing it we've seen so we're outside the hotel regional hospital and just standing there. we've seen world food program trucks passing by. we know that the international rescue committee has started some effort in terms of mobile health care and terms of trying to bring cash to the community. there's another young start up out of the united states called the i c lap, which is also hoping to begin distribution today or tomorrow. so there definitely are efforts, but it doesn't seem to be enough as of yet because one major issue yesterday was the inclement weather. which created road blocks which made it very difficult for
10:03 am
the agency to reach the area. and today here being at the patio regional hospital, we've seen that even though this is a regional hospital where a patient from 3 for different provinces, it's still lack very important resources. for instance, they don't have a helicopter. so when patients come from pack the car here, if they're in bad condition, they have to send them to cobble because they don't have proper emergency services or head injury treatments. they have to send them to cobble by road. and we spoke to a doctor who said, that's of course, very dangerous because you're sending someone in critical condition for 5 hours into another city just to get them basic, you know, emergency services. so just as a whole, you know, the medical system here has always suffered. and this is another very clear example by all of the aid and everything that had come in the past. you know, even a regional hospital suffering and facing difficulties. trying to treat all of the patient, i'm just listening to your answer. then i'm wondering then what kind of international
10:04 am
a do they need if the problem is that they sometimes have to move patients from a hospital because they simply aren't able to treat them, do they need more skill doctors or do they need more long term infrastructure that you know, might take a while to, to bring in and so for instance, we were talking to one of the had doctors here and he said their biggest issue, their 2 biggest issue is, is that they don't have proper emergency services here. a proper emergency ward and again, and they said, you know, patients from 3 to 4 different provinces here at any given time. and also they don't have a helicopter. a helicopter is very important because otherwise it's only maybe about an hour by helicopter, from cobbles. again, these, but now it's going to be for 5 hours on a row. so, you know, again, this is, this is, as you said, it's about infrastructure. it's about long term investment. it's about creating long lasting foundation, something that was lacking over the last 20 years,
10:05 am
despite all of the money that he met. so now what people are hoping for is that proper foundations are, builds, and proper services are brought all over the country. all right, thanks. so much honey for that update. how the u. n. special repertoire says more must be done to stop me and marcy, ma'am, italian crisis and help refugees. tom andrews accused the military john to which so power nicu, last year of war crimes and crimes against humanity. he's in malaysia urging the regional block a ziann to and it's policy of non interference under his latest report documented the killings of hundreds of children by armed groups. since watching the qu, winter forces have arbitrarily detained more than 1400 children. and they have tortured, at least $140.00 to me and more children children have been beaten. they've been cut. they've been stabbed. they've been burned with cigarettes.
10:06 am
they've been forced to hold stress positions. they have been subjected to mock executions. these children have been sexually assaulted, some have had their fingernails and their hair pulled out. july, allan doug and his following the visit from the philippine capital manila. so july, 1st for how much of an eye open all the statements there by mr. sanders about the abuse of children that's going on well, it is something that is relatively new, i mean, unexpected. and in terms of just how graphic the details have been, he spent the last 8 days as speaking, not just the survivors refugees, but also the factors of police and military members of me and mar. i'm. and he also mentioned the vulnerability of children in particular. he said that within the next year, at least 30000 children are expected to die from preventable diseases brought about
10:07 am
by the lack of basic medical services such as immunization. mister andrews also talked about, you know, the humanitarian situation and describe it as catastrophic. and he said that over the last few years, thousands have been in jail. those have been detained and managed to make their way to malaysia, talked about the harrowing conditions of being starved in detention centers of being sexually harassed and tortured. so this really ours a press conference today by mister anders in malaysia really was a reminder to the situation. me and mar is worsening. and you really are singled out the role important role of assay and really in this situation and what it can play, not just as an negotiator, but hopefully as a critical mover in making the mia mark wound actually moved towards loosening and improving the situation, particularly for ordinary people in the m and is also news that ousted min more lead along. su cheese being moved to solitary confinement. why?
10:08 am
what's going on there? well, there's very little information about the situation of miss sushi are based on the information released by the hunter. she has been moved a solitary confinement last wednesday together with a few members of her local staff. not much has been heard from sense, but also mentioned that the press conference of mr. tom andrews is at the situation of mrs. sushi and her party is proof really of the worsening democratic situation. me and mar that the hunter cannot claim that they're, that they're planning to veered towards a more democratic form of government. so if we look at the current situation of miss to chance, he's she be, he basically warned that unless the international community puts a lot of pressure, economic and defense pressure on me and more that not much will actually change. now going back to our c n, as in really as largely been split,
10:09 am
the 10 member party group of us ian has largely had the tradition of non interference. but there's been a glimmer of hope. because recently, the malaysian more foreign ministers singled out me and mar and questioned the rest of the, the assay and organization and said, perhaps it is time to challenge that traditional view of our non inter friends and towards he says, a policy of non in indifference instead all right, thanks so much jamal and oven. how thousands of protesters of march through i kudos capital on the 10th day of a nationwide strike digit. as demonstrators were joined by students and trade unionists, there one action from the government to stem rising, living cos at least 2 protests were killed in earlier march. a latin america editor, the c. anyone, folsom kito. indigenous ecuador ins from the mountains to the coast, to the amazon, a congregating in the capitol quito. define

10:16 am
more injured. the un special repertoire says more must be done to stop me in mars, humanitarian crisis, and help refugees. tom andrews accused the military jones to which to power the crew last year of war crimes and crimes against humanity. thousands of indigenous protesters of march through ecuador capital, quito, the 10th day of a nationwide strike, demanding lower prices for food, fuel, and food. now in south africa, the final report looking into the so called state capture scandal is criticized president semerano poses for not doing enough to stop years of corruption. the 3 year judicial commission investigated a string of allegations against his freed assessor jacob zuba. the report found summa stopped investigations into the goop to brothers roger sh, and our 2 groups were arrested in to by this month accused of using their connections with zoom to win state contracts. this appropriate state assets and
10:17 am
influence cabinet appointments was revealed. zoom are also stopped. authorities from investigating the head of state security off of fraser for running a rogue parallel intelligence organization. fraser was in the news for reporting a burglary in 2020 at a game farm owned by rama, poster involving undisclosed sums of foreign currency and run, oppose. the said, the report could be used against future corruption in south africa. the report is far more than a record of widespread corruption, fraud, and abuse. it is also an instrument through which their country can work to ensure that such events, such a state capture never have ever happen again. in our country. for me, the miller joins us now from johannesburg. so 1st of all,
10:18 am
for me to how compromising are these findings for the president? well, many critics would say that, so given the president, serum of course, has positioned himself as a, as someone fighting corruption. he really hasn't done enough to fight corruption really or graft with in the african national congress. specifically. he testified at these under commission this inquiry. it's just an inquiry into state capture. and this might have backed by of back fight for the president, because we've also heard from this under commission that it finds the president's testimony was somewhat circumspect. and that jacob zoom or the from a former president abused power. and that reports are often let him do so. so certainly the president j of so i am opposed to hasn't come out of the serv inquiry or the report really are looking very good because the party as a whole,
10:19 am
the african national congress is also compromised in that early leaders under commission has been very critical of the a and see perhaps supporting and enabling the former president, jacob zoom in terms of corrupt activities and especially the relationship with the group to brothers that you mentioned, sir. um, of course i certainly would have to do a lot of work going forward in terms of repairing his reputation a given that he was deputy president of the a and c at the time under jacob summa, and clearly hadn't done enough to clean up a government and what happens now though with the reports, recommendations, all the president has full minds to present this report to parliament and were looking possibly at the national prosecuting authority lane, criminal charges against certain individuals. and that's often investigation. but we also understand that these findings will go to parliament, a head of the president of presenting the findings to that institution. and we
10:20 am
parliament and the national assembly could possibly have the freedom to initiate investigations or at least lead the way forward in terms of what happens next. there is concern, of course, around some of the recommendations in just how president silver i'm up was a may take action, but the a and c has said that it is supporting various institutions, including law enforcement agencies to criminal investigate certain individuals. even those are that the agency are only there. thanks so much for me to mila a coffin of a slain congolese independence hero has returned to his home more than 60 years after his assassination. the last known remains of her through slumber. a gold tooth was handed over to his family at the ceremony in brussels. earlier this week, lamar played a major role in the democratic republic of congo, to fight for independence from belgium. he was abducted and assassinated in 1961.

10:29 am
of this, but it thought that this could be linked to, hence that north korea gave a couple of months ago about deploying a tactical nuclear warheads to frontline artillery units. now these are they a small kinds of warheads that we know north korea has been trying to develop that has been speculation that it is preparing for another underground nuclear test. they are also the kind of a smaller warheads that are carried by short range missiles and rockets that north korea has been actively testing. especially since the beginning of this year with 18 rounds of tests of such weapons. so far more important perhaps than what was said was how they said it and why. now interestingly, with news of this meeting, they released a series of pictures, one of them showing intriguingly a map of the east coast of the korean peninsula with the details blurred out for security reasons. but the very fact that they would show this in such
10:30 am
a secretive state is interesting. it is unusual. and also the fact that they referred specifically to frontline units. these are the kinds of units directed at specifically at south korea. so this does seem to be a deliberately aimed to deliberately time to pressure tactic aimed at the administration at south korea, which is conservative. it has promised a much tough line with north korea, amid speculation that we are in for a much tougher, more confrontational period into korean relations. ah, i'll come back, let's recap our headlines now. i can stand taught a bon government has appealed for more international aid. the worst earthquake in 20th struck a remote region in the southeast, at least 1500 people have been killed and many more injured. i lost the fees in these province of.
