12:06 am
its being described as a battle of artillery heavy shelling and multiple locations most focus in and around that city of civil than it is one of 2 cities that the russians do not yet control in the la guns province, so ukrainians very much up against it in the east. so today's decision in brussels, of huge significance and, and moral importance for this country. the united states is ready to send another $450000000.00 worth of military assistance to ukraine, including long range rockets with an unofficial announcement expected in the next few hours. a rush of news agency on thursday release video that appears to show heavy fighting between pro pro russian and ukrainian forces in eastern new cane. russia is advancing in the dumbass region, capturing 2 more villages and their efforts to cut off supply lines and take control of the strategic city of sierra jenny asked moscow's news agencies as

12:08 am
2 separate voices, one from the chemical industry association, another from a large energy energy supplier have said that they can, they see this move by the german government as a logical step. and that it does not change the fundamentals status quo. for the time being, and those are the operative words here, the decision by the russian government to reduce the amount of gas that it pipes to germany has certainly made ministers here. start to worry which explains why they're trying to find other sources of energy for the moment. the green minister in charge of this particular portfolio is trying to find coal and other things. remember also the climate change goals that this government has are really imperiled by a decision to go to other fossil fuels, which explains the dilemma. the berlin government has right now. search and rescue operations in afghanistan of ended in most major regions following its most
12:09 am
devastating earthquake and 20 years efforts are now focused on remote areas. at least 1500 people had dared. and there were urgent appeals for international help. people in pack teak, a province where entire villages were reduced to rubble, a desperate for food, shelter and drinking water. aid is trickling in, but it's not enough. given the scale of the disaster, a summer binge of aid as more ah, even at night, the search for the missing continued in easton of limestone. it's a race against time before the rescue operation turns into recovery of the dead. i did using bare hands and shovels to free those buried under the rubble in the remote villages of host and buck beka provinces were in bed when hundreds of homes and buildings were destroyed by the powerful earthquake managers lowered for the spirit i was sleeping. and i felt a strong tremor. the roof fell on us. i hardly got out of the house. and when i
12:10 am
looked back, i saw my wife and daughter under the rubble in the next room, my nephew, his wife and his daughter. they died. i lost everything in the blink of an eye. ah, as the scale of the devastation becomes clearer, of understands currently does a realizing the challenges in providing relief and shelter for the displaced lords were already in disrepair. and now they are blocked or destroyed by ensuing landslides. after the quake. afghanistan with its various agencies and ministry is launched a joint operation to assist the injured and dispatched a specialized teams by helicopter to provide medical assistance and emergency meeting was held by the prime minister. and it was decided to provide urgent financial aid for compensation. the prime minister appealed to foreign agencies and organizations to assist them gunny people in these difficult circumstances i understand is already facing a humanitarian disaster. most international aid,

12:12 am
humanitarian situation in afghanistan is grave. that was the key message from top un officials to security council members in what was a regularly scheduled meeting to discuss the overall situation in the country. but given the recent devastating earthquake, the immediate humanitarian conditions obviously were front and center, search and rescue operations remain ongoing. as it is expected that the number of casualties will bothering fees or the coming days along with the number of defective communities. i'm sure you will agree that yes, this earthquake was here and i'm a tragic in my other medium dangers which are facing some people at this time. the un estimates they are about 24000000 people in afghanistan or about half the country that are in need of humanitarian assistance. just to survive. the un
12:13 am
already has the f ganna stand, humanitarian response plan. they're asking for about $4400000000.00 in an annual budget, but they've only received about one 3rd of that. meaning that they are on pace to potentially run out of money by the end of the year at a time when this money is needed, the most. we face a $3000000000.00 funding for the last 6 months this year. i think probably i got this is and i was difficult situation in terms of a gap between funding and needs to be anywhere in the world in a country where an earthquake has exacerbated already dire humanitarian conditions calls from the united nations headquarters to rally the world's attention earlier i spoke to mohammed unwise, who is a senior health coordinator at the humanitarian organization, care enough kind of stuff. i started by asking him about the challenges faced by rescue with these are remote areas and there is very poor infrastructure
12:14 am
shelter. so these are prone to the, to the big don't easily unfortunately, so therefore this diggity off, i pick it go so devastating part of the part of the people, especially in the car, in hosp provinces. and where are we in terms of the rescue operation, that the moment the disco environmental operation is still in progress? a we are taking people out of the amount and discharge shelter. access is a bit different in some areas. for example, in spade, our district of host the or is how daily and last night it was heated ain and flood . and also when, so this is a situation worse. and given how remote the area is, has specialist equipment been able to reach those areas and need. yeah, at 1st there is need for high powered vehicle because we had some ambulances, they were not able to go up. so people and it is colleagues need to go by walking
12:15 am
and take the other medicines and all the other things. so there is a need for some of the tools and machinery to actually support the operation. and to what extent has the taliban reached out for international help and how successful has it been in making sure that help has been provided? so usually you in an international and national india or are providing support as part of the usual to be of the, of the working and i will, honest on. so we are working in a little coordinated manner to actually support people. the need is very big data and we need to support the people, especially on the basic life needs. and specifically, what lines of, of cooperation and communicate in are there between local officials of taliban
12:16 am
officials and these international aid organizations. how are the right messages getting through to make sure that the right equipment and support is reaching those in need? yeah, usually the are, are some coordination meetings are held up locally. well, when you are go going to the provinces. so we are getting together, the local communities represent a div, some of the, of the options locally, as well as the representative of the agencies. and just putting all of their se in contacts. of course, millions of people in afghanistan of already been suffering as a result of the, the sudden political change of leadership not to mention drought mount nutrition. and i believe also a measles epidemic. it seems like a tremendous amount for people in afghanistan to have to deal with right now because it was already overwhelmed by a hot intern last winter in the changing of the situation of, i guess 152021 i over d,
12:17 am
reduce of importing of the some basic items from outside the country and just people are becoming jobless, unfortunately on. so the most of these killed people left country. so on, off these are because celebrating factor, good eating a risha circle. unfortunately aimed at the situation is becoming worse and worse. this a natural disaster is easily devastating because of the oddly d at the people it was on you to put on to that with to this of the bus situation. so the, so therefore, these people made in need not only short term support, but they need actually to be recovered. and this at the need will be a long time actually coming up on this new south london, u. k prime minister boys johnson defends

satisfy the courts and keep their citizens safe. kristin salumi al jazeera new york . the u. s. house select committee is holding its 5th hearing into last year's storming of the capital building and whether then president donald trump attempted to overturn the 2020 presidential election. the former acting deputy attorney general robert donahue describes how he responded during the near daily discussions between trumpet members of the justice department about allegations of votes of fraud. i felt in that conversation that was incumbent on, on me to make it very clear to the president what our investigations had revealed. and that we had concluded based on actual investigations, actual witness interviews, actual reviews of documents that these allegations simply had no merit. and i want to try to cut through the noise because it was clear to us that there are a lot of people whispering in his ear,
12:22 am
feeding him these conspiracy theories and allegations. and i felt that being very blunt in that conversation might help make it clear to the president at these allegations were simply not true. all right, let's begin heidi joe castro joins us live from capitol hill id. tell us more about this press a campaign. trump had towards the department of justice. right, and i'll take it right from where that speaker left off because trump did not hear what he wanted to forwarding to these investigators. when the department of justice official said that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud and the people whispering in his ear was in fact one of a lower level department, justice attorneys, jeffrey clark and environmental lawyer. all of this pressure that constant phone calls and meetings between the d o. j in the white house building up to a consequential meeting in the oval office on january 3rd. and i don't want to make light of this meeting,
12:23 am
but there were even chuckles coming out of the audience in the hearing room because it is so absurd. the description of what happened there. trump invited jeffrey rosen who was then the acting attorney general that the leader of the department of justice to that meeting as well as jeffrey clark, the person trump wanted to replace frozen with any sensually. what played out was a scene out of the apprentice. then the reality show that trump used to star. and before he became president in which he had both men essentially argue to keep their jobs, he was going to fire one of them at the end of the day. and according to the white house log hit, the president's mind was already made up even before the meeting began. because clark, that environmental lawyer, he was already titled acting attorney general, which was the promotion that he was seeking, that the president was willing to give him. well, why did president trump like clark? because car wasn't willing to go along with these conspiracy theories that trump
12:24 am
and his 8th were spreading, trying to overturn jo biden's legitimate when in the 2020 presidential election. and the only reason that clark was not promoted to attorney general that day is because the actual attorney general jeff rosen, was armed with information that didn't disturb trump. knowing that not only what he was from his job, but his assistance and possibly hundreds of other department justice employees, they told trump in that meeting that, that, that clark would be left leading a graveyard department. and essentially that is why trump did not replace his attorney general and why his effort to pressure the department of justice to falsely declare that this election was a law illegitimate. why that effort failed id, joe castro, live from capitol hill? thank you. now 24 democratic senators have written to you as president joe biden, telling him to get washington directly involved to the investigation into the

12:26 am
it was not there and is really bullet that killed sherry and ever i play. and in fact, media investigations as well as palsied investigations, conclude just the opposite. that there is, in fact, some deep distrust with these conclusions. and that is the reason that these democratic centers say the united states must get directly involved in order to get the transparency and the full accountability that the secretary of state antony blinking has promised that the united states will seek to try and achieve construction work has begun on a new separation wall at the edge of the occupied west bank. it's parallel to these railey separation firms near the palestinian israeli village of salem. the concrete would be 45 kilometers long as it is expected to be completed later this year. israel's foreign minister has met his turkish counterpart in ankara. darla pete arrived in turkey on thursday to meet level of java. so lou security concerns were

12:33 am
an urgent appeal for international help. the u. s. supreme court has handed down a landmark victory to gun rights advocates. it ruled that century old restrictions in new york state on carrying conceal hon. guns and public are unconstitutional. indigenous groups in ecuador have rallied against the government for an 11th day. the protest is in kito angry at rising fuel and fuel prices. they say president gamma law says economic reforms are hurting the country's most vulnerable communities. the demonstrations are growing increasingly violent. at least 2 protest this have been killed in recent days. while our latin america editor, lucy newman, joins us live from quito, alysia, the country's military has labeled these demos a grave threat. but what are the protest is main demands? well, i could certainly say that this crisis is becoming more and more complex by the
12:34 am
minute. certainly by the day it's actually the 12th day. and what you see behind me are members of the army in their full riot gear. they are basically the 1st line of defense leading up to the presidential palace about 3 blocks in front of reason. that direction is where very, very fierce clashes between riot police and protests were taking place. just a few minutes ago. we've come from there. the protest years have been asking they have a 10 point. dement going to say a list of demands and the among them are the lower entries, the price of fuel to, to improve health, education, and, and pensions for the people, especially the indigenous farmers home. the confederation of indigenous peoples of ecuador represent they are the ones who are leading this, this national strike, but the others have joined them at this point it's, it's paralyzing the countries,
12:35 am
certainly the city, there's nobody, everything is shot. there's no traffic, there's no public transport. there, shortages of, of petrol, of cooking, gas of fresh food. and it doesn't look that there's going to be any solution to this anytime soon. the president had asked for a dialogue to take place, and as a sign of a conciliatory gesture, the 1st one. since this all began, he allowed the indigenous confederation to take back the house of culture as it's called that is uses going to rain. yes. so you'll have to, you'll have to, excuse me, the house of culture, which is where they normally gather that in an unprecedented move, the president had ordered the police to take it over. but that hasn't really quite passions very much at all. the president says he wants to talk about this 10 lists of these 10 demands, but they've been talking for the last year and the confederation says they don't trust the president to really, to do more than just by time, by sitting down with them. again, let's say you kind of touched upon this already,
12:36 am
but give us a sense of the, the kind of power the vis alliance behind these process actually, wheels in the country. they have a lot of power. i think there's really no way to underestimate it in the past, in ecuador, just so that argue is get an idea. they've been able to lead to the, basically the demise, the resignation or the overthrow of 3 presidents. and that i'm not talking about a 100 years ago, i'm talking so it's 1990 until now. they are very well organized, very, very disciplined. they are usually the ones who lead the charge. when there is a demonstration, they are asking for concrete economic changes, but what we're seeing now are moves to perhaps lead to one institutional change. in other words, for the moves for the president to resign. just a short while ago, when those classes took place, it was because members of the indigenous community were trying to deliver
12:37 am
a letter to the president of the national assembly. that lever, called on the national assembly to use article 130 of the ecuador and constitution to see whether to decide whether the president was fit to remain in office and also to seek a political solution to the crisis. this is something we hadn't heard until today. and it certainly is moving this, this crisis towards an institutional crisis, not just wouldn't nomic one or security one as we have seen until now. lucy and human left america editor and keith. so thank you. lebanon's prime minister designate is calling for political factions in the country to put aside the differences and cooperate to ease the country's economic crisis. not cheap. mccarty is speaking after being asked by politicians to form a new government so holler is in beirut. no, she me at is back as lebanon's prime minister. he received the most support from members of parliament on thursday after last month's legislative elections. the

12:39 am
there is another factor raising the stakes. in october, parliament must elect a new president. and if no individual gets the support of at least 2 thirds of m. p 's, the incoming government will have to assume executive power by proxy. parliament is polarized a fragmented, if there is no international consensus. if there is no modest randy between the original powers, it will prove extremely difficult to find the president to succeed me. shannon, in that case, the government will become de facto in charge off, leaving their country with the exceptional prerogatives. 2 of the last 4 years were spent under a caretaker administration with limited powers, as people faced multiple crises. but even when there was a government in office, politicians fail to address the economies freefall. the state has all but collapse . it's struggling to provide services and the public sector was barely functioning
