2:03 pm
wounded has been particularly difficult, as long as sun continues to struggle under the pressure of international sanctions . even this regional hospital here and these, the capitals 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 kinda 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, a test of their ability to respond to disaster. your coupon says his community is surrounded by tragedy managers and i was there last night. there was an earthquake
2:04 pm
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 roads and to any other services. so really what goes on here is extremely important. well, the taliban governments deputy chief and interior minister as cooling on the international community to do more to help us to live. on the 8th,
2:05 pm
we request all the agencies in other countries to send us urgent aid and to help us . since many houses have been destroyed, and many people are effected, the islamic emirates of a canis danville transparently distribute all aide to needy people through land or air. we again urged for urgent help. us go live to ality views in the eastern province of pock adi, a desperate situation. what is the latest on the ground? you said there was another earthquake earlier today that left at least 5 people dead up to 11 more injured. i in a districts impact call province over the last 2 days, the acting interior minister said dean, i'm funny, husband visiting the victims in both host and practical province and his visit. you know, it's sort of a highlights the irony of the situation. i want us on currently, on the one hand, he's acting interior minister and he wants to bring as much help to people as
2:06 pm
possible. but on the other, he's a much feared man who is that, you know, part of one of the most violent facts of the taller ball and in the past. and most importantly, he has a massive f b. i bounty on his head for millions of dollars. and really anyone who knows his whereabouts is supposed to give information to the f b i to turn this man in. and yet this is the man that is responsible for security domestic security in the country and who is also trying to bring aid and assistance to thousands of people that are desperately needed. so it's, it's the symbol of the, of the paradox that i want to find has become under tolerable control. it is a paradox indeed. in terms of what people actually need, what is it that they need? i mean, there's been cause international support. is it more food? is it more shelter? is it more health care?
2:07 pm
it's you know, more, more health care for sure. you know, we were talking to hospital officials here in the regional hospital and got these and packed. and they said, you know, something that they desperately need is more on the ground hospitals within the areas. because for instance, today's earthquake is another example of why they need to make sure that even the village level has the proper clinics and medical attention for people. especially at a time like this. they also need air power. they need helicopters to bring the wounded from these areas, you know, which can be oftentimes up to 10 hours from the next major city into the, you know, again the next capital over for treatment. so they need that they also need proper coordination with international organization to make sure the international organizations are able to work on the ground and really partner with local, regional organizations that has been the biggest issue for international organizations. is that a lot of the constraints put on them by the you and, and other organizations keeps them from being able to work with groups who would
2:08 pm
have much more direct access to areas like this. and requires them to be much more at the whim of the larger scale organizations like the united nations and their different restrictions and guidelines of how to operate in the current conditions. ali ltv speaking to us from the eastern province of park to yeah, thank you. a commonwealth heads of government meeting has begun and wander on a controversial u. k. one to assign him deal is threatening to overshadow the summit by the british prime minister boris johnson. and the u. k. prince charles are attending. johnston has defended his governance plan to deport migrants to under while since apartments charles is reportedly criticized deal in private. let's go to malcolm webb, who is live for us in kigali 1st. not come tell us about the u. k prime minister boris johnson, to what extent is his deal with wanda dominating the conversation?
2:09 pm
well, prince charles and maurice johnson spoke a short while ago at the opening ceremony of the meeting taking place in a convention center just over there. and neither of the mentioned this at all, but we do, you know, from what was reported by british newspapers just days before prince charles travelled here in private. he describes this asylum deal as a pulling to deal by which the u. k. has paid already about a $150000000.00 to president polka gummies government. just the 1st down payment asylum seekers from the u. k. a meant to be flown here. the 1st claim was meant to land haven kigali last week. it didn't following a series of last minute legal challenges in the end, it didn't take off with both government say they still want to push ahead with this plan,
2:10 pm
which is drawn widespread criticism from rights groups. boris johnson in his opening speech did also talk. we did talk about russian aggression in, in ukraine. he evidently wants to try and galvanized commonwealth countries behind the british and western opposition to russia's invasion of ukraine. now it's notable that some of the commonwealth heavy weights, the heavyweight countries didn't send their heads of state, but instead, instead said more judaea, delegations instead, they include south africa, australia, and india. prime minister modi isn't here, it's one of the ministers that incentive who india is trying to maintain relations with russia, russia, how strong economic ties with russia and malcolm. what else is on the agenda of this? have a commonwealth heads of government meeting?
