1:00 pm
ah with mm pool away issue and line of the journey. ah, this is al jazeera. ah.
1:01 pm
hello, i am sammy's a dan. this is the news out live from dell. how coming up in the next 60 minutes view ends, human rights office says the bullet that killed chile now bar club was 5, buys rady forces. a struggle to survive in afghanistan after a devastating earthquake leaves thousands without homes, food, or drinking water. leaders of commonwealth nations gather in rwanda, but the u. k. it's controversial asylum deal is threatening to overshadow the summit. pressure amounts on british prime minister barak johnson after a pair of bi election losses for his conservative party and his full apollo bank. harold led the way at b, m b, a draft. the orlando magic made the 19 year old, their number one overall ah,
1:02 pm
ah, let's bring you some news that's just trickling into us. the united nation is urging israel to conduct an investigation into the death of al jazeera journalist, sharing a block the for more on this as have now to bernard smith joined us on the phone from west theresa burnett. i understand it also made a finding about the source of fire. yes, i mean, it looks like the u. n. is adding to a, a growing mountain as evidence from other organizations, as well as colleagues and cnn at the new york times the associated press, who found that it's very likely that the bullet that killed serene black clay came from an israeli gum. now these railways have always tried to deny this. they've said that it could have come from palestinian fights, but those very, very little evidence could be possible. nobody suggesting now that the even palestinian fighters in the area actually and was shocked. and so these railways
1:03 pm
facing growing challenges from various quarters to the defense that they don't know where the bullet came from. they have asked the palestinians to hand over the bullets so that they can conduct their own investigation. the palestinian authority says it doesn't trust bays. railways, but what israel did say last month, not long after serene was shot, was that they insisted it was the chief of israel's general staff. the israel military, he insisted that there was no one in it. no soldier fired intentionally at the journalist. they say they investigated that they checked it on that conclusion and they've been sticking with argument since not long after sharing was killed. a lot of mounting pressure then on israel to all for an transparent investigation. where does where things stand in that regard?
1:04 pm
well in that regard, israel has, excuse me, in that regard. israel has said that he wanted an investigation of joint investigation with the palestinians. the palestinians don't trust the israel to be to, to have an investigation live. this is why the palestinian has probably seen parties with queues to handle the bullet. the challenge for the israeli with growing amounts of evidence from investigation is pretty thorough. investigation is done not just by the un, but as i say, other news organizations that make it pretty clear. the bullet came for minis, railey western, and israel is finding it harder and harder to defend the argument that it can't go . and that he can't be sure where the bullet came from. what marriage is, mountain evidence that it came from an israeli weapon. all right, thanks so much fun. smith on the line that now to afghan
1:05 pm
a stand where there are urgent calls for more international help officer. it's most destructive earthquake in 20 years. at least 1150 people have been killed in time villages been reduced to rubble. people in pock teacup province so desperate for food, shelter, and drinking water. i don't know if he begins on coverage. it only took 5 minutes for the lives of these men to change forever. in the early morning hours of the 21st of june, 5.9, magnitude earthquake struck every honest on leaving more than 1500 dead and hundreds more injured. a handful of districts in the south eastern provinces, practical and host, where the worst hed and the han was at home with his 14 family members when the tremors were felt. the when you move the just to move, it was 1 30 am, didn't even take a full minute in my family. 10 people including children,
1:06 pm
were killed. there is a private clinic, but it's 30 minutes away. there is no government hospital here. the remoteness of these villages is one reason why the casualty tool is so high. treating $100.00 the wounded has been particularly difficult as a son continues to struggle under the pressure of international functions. even this regional hospital here and these, the capital of patio province is struggling to cope with the load while helicopters have been instrumental in transferring the injured and providing assistance. there aren't enough of them to go around. malawi, khalid commander of the 2 or 3 months with the army corps says they need more helicopters or whatever planes we had enough canister and we brought them all from kind of hard couple. of course, we still need much more. there's still a shortage for thousands of on the last few days have been full of loss and grief for the top one government, it's been a test,
1:07 pm
a test of their ability to respond to disaster. your coupon says his community is surrounded by tragedy. managers allow for this be but last night there was an earthquake and we lost everything. we have martyrs, there, here, there. there are a lot of injured people. all these houses are destroyed. we've lost our mosque. there's nothing left here, only the injured even women, all because of the earthquake. we're here at the pack to army corps, which has become the epicenter of aid for the earthquake relief. all day helicopters take off and land from here, they bring the injured. they also take with them assistance from international aid organizations and from of on a organization to bring to the most devastated areas in the country. areas that have very little access to clinics, to hospitals, to proper road and to any other services. so really what goes on here is extremely important. or let's go now entirely loc,
1:08 pm
the see in the some province of park alley, we're hearing about new casualties. tell us how significant these new trends and after shock saw. so we've just gotten confirmation from officials and cobble and, and practical province that late friday morning at around 10 am. there was another earthquake that killed at least 5 people and injured another 11. this comes out of time in the district of guy on where we were just yesterday. you know, where people were essentially the ones who had some, some once of a home surviving were living in mother houses without rooms with cracks, all over them. just trying to hang onto whatever they had left. so it's only adding to the damage. you're talking about damaged homes that potentially face even more damage, which is why the government is asking for more assistance in these areas to provide
1:09 pm
some form of temporary housing. and till they can be repaired and until they can be certain that there won't be any eminent aftershocks, reports of survivors in a really desperate situation. now in need of basics is a coming fast enough or alley. 4 i'm going to try again. hopefully you can hear me. what's happening with survivors is a reaching them fast enough. we're hearing that they, they need i obviously we lost out of them. we'll try and come back to him later. now commonwealth heads of government meeting has begun in rwanda and the controversial u. k. one, the asylum deal is threatening to overshadow the summit. both britons prime minister and the case prince charles are attending boss. johnson has defended his government's plan to deport migrants to wander while prince charles has reportedly
1:10 pm
criticize the deal in private, malcolm, when joined us now from kigali. so how much control overseas? the u. k. the sign and policy stirring there? will prince charles had described it according to british newspapers as a pool? if not how you describe this policy to the poor asylum seekers from the u. k. through under the 1st claim was meant to land hearing kigali last week. it didn't happen following a series of last minute legal challenges that plane didn't actually fly, but both the government say that they do still want to try and do this. we just heard the prince charles and boris johnson speaking short while ago in the convention center. there where the, the meeting is taking place. they did, they didn't mentioned it the little prince. charles did talk about the or acknowledge the growing republican sentiment in some of the commonwealth members,
1:11 pm
a growing number of commonwealth member states, talking about no longer having the queen as their head of state, the queen of the united kingdom. prince charles is here representing her, so he did acknowledge that is why things are going for his johnson spoke about development and co operation. and he was very critical of russian aggression. and he spoke very critically rushes invasion in ukraine. but interestingly, military aggression is one of the things that rwanda is accused of right now about a 120 kilometers from here in that direction and over the border in the democratic republic of congo. just lot night. the 23 armed group attacked the town of remind garbo that trying to take the town. it follows a series of attacks in recent months by the rebel group. and congo says that rwanda is behind it. and $23.00 is operations tend to start at the rwandan border. 10 years ago, you and investigators documented that rwanda was in fact arming and backing them.
1:12 pm
congress says that's exactly what's happening now. we're wonder, always denies it. very few people in congo, believe them, and they say that tied of rwandan military aggression in eastern congo and looting of minerals, which i say has gone on for decades. but no one have in the convention center is talking about that control vesee that's happening. not very far from here. all right, we'll leave it then. thanks so much malcolm with the u. k. governing conservative party as last 2 crucial by elections, increasing the pressure on prime minister barak johnson the losses of from to the resignation of the parties. chairman, who says it's supporters deserve better, jonah, how reports the green fields of rural devon, reliably, conservative for years, until now, the people, if it didn't want to have both paper break, they said
1:13 pm
a loud and clear message. it's time for us to go and go. because thinks it's a whole thing so far we've had so many years and thinking any best buy and actions don't always represent the wider national picture. they are often protest boats with a local focus. but nor do they tend to overturn majorities like this one in 2019. the conservatives won the tipton, and hornet, and constituency. by 24000 votes, a margin. they've now lost a loss that even conservative voters. so coming, i think it's possibly a little bit change. you could say the liberal democrats have done a very good campaign. they're absolutely full on in the current political climate, it's hard to separate the local from the national people do of course complain about public services about the cost of living and many say the conservative party
1:14 pm
has taken them for granted until that is their m. p stood down when he was found to have looked at pornography in the house of commons. but repeatedly he had people do also cite national issues as reason for their choice. hello there, i'm going to chamberlain. i'm calling behalf of richard. fortunately, themes for violation, i just think with all the recent things in the thing that behavior with covert is the law of people, i think it doesn't fit right with. and i think this is the best chance of getting them sending a message really facing them, sending a message to the conservative that you know, we're not happy. and that's why the liberal democrats success in tifton and on it and matters nationally after this defi some conservative em pays, will be thinking, do i really want bars, johnson to be leading me into the next election. you know, with losses like this already happening. football is johnson's party, the swift country seat as delivered, a severe blow, the prime minister,
1:15 pm
who narrowly survived the leadership challenge recently, will now worry about his party's core support. as will his m. p. 's. if the conservatives can lose here, they can lose anywhere. with john hall joins us now from tibbets. and the 1st of all, you know, there's a lot of talk about this last this lecture last, jonah. why? what was the significance of these 2 feet? losing 2 seats in one night and 2 by elections is bad enough, but these represent very different constituencies. it is a twin prong attack on forrest johnson's parliamentary majority. if you extrapolate forward to the next election, the 1st in west yorkshire, wakefield going, unsurprisingly to the labor party. it's very much part of what was considered the labor parties, red wall of seats until 2019, when it crumbled many going to forest johnson. and the conservatives, this is
1:16 pm
a sign that labor as a good chance of rebuilding its red wall at the next election. thus far more important. one is here, tilton and huntington in east devon because this is true blue, conservative country. this is part of the blue wall, it's the sort of seat, an area that's very conservative for a 100 years that they'd expect to hold on to with very little effort. instead going to the liberal democrats and doing so with a historic numerical swing. if you add to those 2 events, the resignation this morning, of a real party heavy weight all of a doubt and the chairman of the conservative party in his resignation letter, he didn't pledge his loyalty to the prime minister. he said things have got to change. there can be no more business as usual, and there you have 3 reasons for a real state of crisis in government and in the conservative party today. and on that point. then jonah, how real is the fears? i guess that this may prompt nps, members of vice johnson's own party,
1:17 pm
even government, to organize and move against him. well, let's hear from burris johnson. first of all, he's away in rwanda, of course, far from the fray here, but far from insulated from it. if your likeness was his reaction this morning. yes, it's absolutely true that we've had some, some tough by election results and they being, i think, a reflection of a lot of things. but we got to recognize that our voters are going through a tough time about and i think that as a government, i've got to listen to what people say. and in particular to the difficulties people are facing over the cost of living. so he'll listen, but he'll carry on and to answer your question, sammy, for how long? remember this is the prime minister who less than 3 weeks ago survived, but far too narrowly survived. a vote of confidence among his own and peas,
1:18 pm
2 in 5 of whom turned against him at that in the wake of a series of scandals and controversies in government. issues of trust and integrity . not least the prime minister himself being fined by the police for attending a party in downing street for breaking the law. now these 2 defeats could very well . now send a message to his m p 's to his party, that he is no longer on top of all that even a vote when an electoral asset. and i think it's highly likely that moves will begin behind the scenes to start plotting their next move against him. all right, thanks so much, joan. how they're plenty more still ahead on the news out including hunger as a weapon of war. food securities in focus to the meeting of g 7 foreign ministers in germany. we have the latest from the virtual brick summit where russia's president is making his 1st major diplomatic appearance in the ukraine invasion
1:19 pm
sports. we'll hear from the pe setting golf says key we fruits has been the secret success ah. returning to our top story now, the un says its investigation into the killing of al jazeera journalist. surely not box shows the bullet that killed her most likely belong to israeli forces. let's take a look. what's happened since sharon was killed? she was shot dead while reporting from the janine refugee camp in the occupied westbank hours after her death. these re, the government began circulating video suggesting she was likely shot by a palestinian fighter. while it later changed that account saying it's possible that soldiers may have killed her. palestinian president mahmud bass rejected a proposal for a joint investigation with israel fighting. a lack of trust is ready for his attacks morning at the funeral. on may, the 13th israel has yet to make an investigation into the incident. public media
1:20 pm
outlets associated press and cnn announced their own investigations which found that close likely killed by israeli fire. a palestinian authority pro found the barclay was deliberately killed by israeli forces. on the same day, al jazeera said it was file a case with the i. c c and on june the 9th, the palestinian foreign minister took the results of its investigation to v i. c. c . al jazeera as senior political analyst model on the shower, joins us now from london. good tabby with us. some are on this is quite a significant development that even the u. n is weighing in and saying all the evidence, it has seen points in the direction of israel. yes, absolutely. certainly the evidence is building up, the proof is building up. clearly, whatever israel has claimed are from the outset was not credible. it was simply an
1:21 pm
attempt at mystifying its role in the crime against our colleague. but i think what is new in the u on report that i thought was quite interesting or not a forensic investigator. but i think the fact that the said specifically several sing go seemingly well aimed shots at our colleagues, means that there was a bit of a deliberate attempt to shoot and kill, especially coming from the side of the israel unit that is basically hiding behind . as some sort of a steel protection, which means that we're not exactly defending themselves. they were aiming well at those who had press written all over them. but single several meaning it wasn't just sort of a machine gun type thing by mistake. so clearly we're getting closer to closer to
1:22 pm
the idea that this might have been deliberate whether it was ordered or not, whether this was targeted assassination or not, as for example, some palestinians are now claiming that and as far as i'm concerned, remains to be seen. but clearly the evidence against israel and his occupation forces is building up to be that one all a deliberate shooting at our colleague rendering the her dad. unfortunately, i'm still not taking responsibility for the act, but on the have been precedence in the past where countries don't want to, even when countries don't want to cooperate with an international investigation, the u. n. has still be able to get some kind of international investigation or special repertoire in place. what's the likelihood that this is going to happen now with all the mounting evidence you've been talking about historically speaking. so
1:23 pm
i me, as you will know when, as our yours, our own, perhaps our viewers on the was, remember, israel has always rejected any sort of rule for the un, even in diplomacy, let alone in sort of what it sees as infringement, in its own internal investigations or affairs or commissions, or what have you. this is i've always rejected the you on rolled out afraid of what you and might look in and see. and that's why they typically resorted to the united states. unfortunately, the united states is not putting in a freshman at the u. n. and israel to make sure that this happens in as far as we can see, sunny the united states remains. and you know, quite, i don't want to say hasn't that. it's worse than has it been it's, it's almost complicit with these railey crime in the way that they continue to defend israel and said, we don't know who's behind it. even though see
1:24 pm
a new york times wasn't, was all the main media outlets in the united or the came out with the toils about the matter. clearly for washington, it is not about the act sandy. it's more about the actor. if the actor happens to be russian kidding, ukrainian journalist. no one is asking for an investigation. if the actor is iranian, even if the african is palestinian, the united states does not ask for investigations or permissions. but when the actor is, is read, doesn't matter if it's, that's what the federal and state sponsored terrorism on the part of these 8 many 30, then the united states, only you and simply asked for investigation. and this is the dilemma were in israel . would not that budget do its own investigation of its own military and its certainly capable of doing so the united states would not put pressure and they un simply could, you know, make the claims but would not be able to get involved. and that was our senior
1:25 pm
political analyst, not one be shot at i now ukraine has taken a major step towards membership of the european union. after e, you states voted to give key of candidate status. it's the 1st step in what can be a years long process. less than sasha bought the reports from e u. headquarters in brussels sends a strong message to russia. ah, just days after russia began its invasion of ukraine, keith applied to join the european union. 4 months later, you leaders at a summit in brussels, approved the request and put ukraine on the path to future membership. we have decided to grant to the 32 you crew and moldova. then you are ready to grant to the suitors to ga. once priorities will be addressed. there can be no batch,

a sign of hope for the citizens of ukraine mould of an georgia in these troubled times. ukraine's president of anatomy zalinski called the eas decision, a unique and historical moment in relations. we have just received the european union candidacy. this is a victory. we've been waiting for this 120 days of the war. and even 30 years of our independence. it usually takes years for a country to gain candidate status. after applying some you official said fast tracking the process would prove the block solidarity with ukraine as a defense itself against russian attacks. a sentiment echoed by the head of ukraine's mission to the you had a gathering in the city. it's important for the whole country for the whole society . and it's important also for the granular army to have a clear reason what we are fighting for. we are fighting for the future. we are fighting for the modern independence over european country. becoming
1:27 pm
a candidate country is only a step to be granted. membership is a long and arduous process. the could take many years. some western balkan countries have been waiting for more than a decade for progress on fe. you beds. leaders from the region were also in brussels to urge you officials to speed up the process north, macedonia, albania, serbia, and montenegro are all candidate countries. the want to achieve full membership with definitely support the candidacy status for ukraine. we also support the candidate status for moldova. we are very thrilled at the georgia is also being given the european perspective. but we also ask our european partners not to forget about or leave the western balconies behind the e use approval. if keith's candidacy sends a strong message, not only to ukraine but also to russia, but despite moscow's fire,
1:28 pm
power and efforts, keith is determined to look west. here leaders are continuing their meetings in brussels today and natasha butler joins us now live from there. so natasha is a more coordinated response emerging from europe towards the continents energy challenges leaders and knocked in their discussions now. and they are talking about how the you can try and ensure and secure energy supplies in the winter months as the book toys to wean itself all for russian, a gas in response to the crisis in ukraine. now it is expected that you leaders will call on the commission to try a see if the commission could look at securing energy supplies. in other words, acting collectively in a lot, each member state, acting alone,
1:29 pm
but at the commission would look and see if the control and secure those energy supplies on behalf of the block a bit like we saw during the cove it pandemic with the vaccine. well out, there are 12 countries, 12 member states in the you that say that their gas supplies from russia on nearly at 0 or running very, very low. indeed there is a lot of concern. we also know that you the does a looking at ways that they can bolster their gas stokes as those winter months come. because there is a lot of concern in these member states about how consumers will fit in the winter months. we're ready talking about a situation which there's a cost of living crisis inflation soaring prices rising. and what they want to do is try to shield consumers for many more pi sites. i thanks so much and sure, buckler. now us secretary of state antony blinkin is in germany for a g 7 meeting on global food security. ahead of the meeting,
