tv NEWSHOUR Al Jazeera July 22, 2022 1:00pm-2:01pm AST
coming up in the next 60 minutes. security forces and sri lanka had descended on an anti government protest camp in the capital for him to tweet out the message about mike pence. it was him foreign gasoline on the fire and making it much worse. the u . s. congressional committee here is from donald trump's, former aides. you say the president refused to call off the mob that stormed capitol hill, hope's a high for a deal that would restart green exports. and the ukranian port of odessa in beirut, intense heat sets of fires at the sight of the 2020 explosion that devastated the city. and in thought, american no eliles retains as 200 meters well title with the 3rd fastest time in history. ah, well we begin in sri lanka, where security voices have raided the main anti government protest camp and colombo,
just hours after ronald become a singer, was sworn in as president protest to say they had planned to vacate that area by friday afternoon. the big room singer has threatened to crack down on what he calls the undemocratic demonstrators who toppled his predecessor shortly after that protest site was cleared danish, gwyn, or what donnie was sworn in as sri lanka, new prime minister. and he is an ally of former president got to buy a roger boxer. the rest of the cabinet is expected to be sworn in laser on friday. well, let's bring in step batson. she is in colombo and she joins us now at step. can you tell us a little more? what do we know about this new prime minister? ah, well, the prime minister is a very close ally off the precedent, omni low, become a senior. he went to school with him. so there been a close friends for a very long time. he was also in the ruling coalition for these past few years, he's gone is seen as also someone who's been supporting the right or fox or so.
it's definitely not to change that protests. us have been asking for demanding for months because of this very crippling economic crisis, sri lanka is dealing with a blamed hatchet boxer family for putting them into all this misery. and now with the new prime minister, they don't see any change, especially not with the new president, daniel become a single, was appointed by a go to buy it back to as his prime minister just a couple of months ago. say they don't see any change. they have been very upset, very angry about these apartments and what we've seen and heard about the new cabinet. it's completely the same. the only change is the prime minister, but all the ministers are still the same faces. nothing you become a singer had promised to bring in like a national unity government to solve the problems to gather. but at that hasn't materialized, at least not until now and step now that their protest camp has been strong. do we have a sense of what the protesters are planning next?
well, they're very angry. i since this morning of garza at 2 am in the middle of the night larch, matilda military and police presence came here to decide it was. they were basically rating with violence. the last proto site that these protests were still holding. it was their presidential secretariat. they were there for the last 12 days. they were rallying did a health speech is all very peaceful, but and this forest came in, protest were beaten lawyers were beaten journalists for beads, and people have been detained as well. and since this morning we've seen this crowd here gathering. now it's a small crowd, but they have continuously been shouting at police saying that they should allow so protest us to gather this. also international outcry about is sir tracked down from the united states ambassador, the high commission out of from written amnesty international. they all call on the government to allow peaceful protesters to gather. of course, the, one of the things that 3 lanka really needs at the moment is political stability.
and they want a bailout package from the i am after basically forced to do this because of their bankruptcy. but many are questioning how this violence here will go down internationally and how this will will lead to possibly political stability. so there's a lot of concern about the weeks and months to come, steadfast and therefore us in colombo, thanks so much step. well, the u. s. how select committee has heard how form the president donald trump sat and watched the january 6th riots unfolding on capitol hill for 2 and a half hours before taking action to form a white house staff as have given evidence, suggesting that trans initially dismissed calls to try to deescalate the situation, she had returned the reports. the committee's focus was the 187 minutes between donald trump finishing his white house speech to the followers he summoned on january the 6th. out of the ventral video message cooling on the writers to go home
after they reached a capital and more evidence is presented, the trump wanted to join the protest. and let me go into a heated argument with secret service agents who refused to take him. but now we got a suggestion about why they refused for security official who chose to remain anonymous . i don't know if you want to use the word insurrection, qu whatever. we all knew that this would move from a normal democratic public event into something else. having been rebuffed, trump retired to the white house dining room where he remained for over 2 and a half hours. the cool logs are blank for that time and the official white house photographer was prevented from entry. but fox news was displaying the unfolding chaos. a few kilometers away, witnesses, se trump made no effort to intervene during that time, but was well aware of what was unfolding. are you aware of any phone call by the president of the united states to the secretary of defense that day? where are you aware of any phone call by the president united states to the attorney general of the united states that day?
no, you have any phone call by the president of the united states, the secretary of homeland security that day. i'm not aware of that. those in the white house growing more alarmed, desperate to get the president to do something. so with trump, children, his closest allies, the republican leadership in congress, even fox news hosts, but to no avail. on capitol hill, members of the vice president security detail say they were terrified members of the b p detail at this time, we're starting to peer for their own lives. but instead from twitch is an attack against like pants that inflamed the crowd further, it looked like fuel being poured on the fire. donald trump's daughter, vanka, managed to get her father to agree to cool and support his quotes to stay peaceful, but only after protracted negotiations. me that the president did not want to include any sort of mention of peace in that tweet by the pending committee. argue that only when it was clear that any attempt to stop the votes, edification would fail, and the national guard was on its way, did donald trump speak?
but even then, he refused to use the prepared statement. it was a land slide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. but you have to go home now. we have to have peace. sure, i can't see it for the next day of the address. the nation probably still would not conceive, but this election is now all congress has certified the results. i don't want to say the elections. i just want to say congress has certified the results without saying the elections over. okay. the committees argument is that trump broke the oath of office by not acting on january the 6th, but it just failed to act. he chose not to act. i'm the committee will hold more hearings in september to make the argument that trump isn't fit to ever hold office again. she advertise the al jazeera washington bruce fine as a former us associate deputy attorney general and also a constitutional lawyer. he says form of vice president mike pence needs to appear before that committee to explain donald trump's directions on january 6. even the
statements that trump issued that were ambiguous, in the sense that on one hand, he says you should be peaceful, but we love you and your patriot is that way he never ever consider doing was saying president biden won the election according to our processes. never, he's won, there'll be a peaceful transition. and unfortunately, you know, you have violated the law and our appointed special task force that the justice department you're going to be prosecuted and go to jail and don't think you're going to get pardons just what someone would be saying when they have an obligation to faithfully execute the laws you want and the violation for so flagrant that everybody in the white house except for him could see the criminal al with that was going on. and it is, it seems to me a very important at some point that the committee forgetting the actual words of president trump, when he was told repeatedly, you have to do something,
you got blood on your hand. this is really terrible. i remember in the nixon impeachment it was very important when john d testified about raise money to pay off the water in the burglar. then he would say the nixon that, oh yeah, well, we could do it, but that would be wrong. and you know, that would be wrong. there was a famous free that would use woodward burge the in, in watergate because it did add a very personal dimension, giving you insight into the state of mind the president. and that's why i think the committee is going to be darrell. it talks about dereliction of duty. if they do not insist on getting mister pens, his testimony and having mister chip alone back in others and tell me you need to tell us. what did the president tell you? you have no privilege your duty as a government lawyers to the constitution. this is not, not to germany or you take an oath to dare pure you take no st up all the constitution of the united states. what will needed in my judgment,
if you want to say the smoking gun will be direct testimony from mister pen, stating this is what the president was doing to me harassing me. he use these curse words. he said, i don't care x y z. that will gravitate all eyes in the whole nation, that in my judgement could be sufficient to push this into credit accused by the justice department. or meanwhile, u. s. president biden is experiencing mild symptoms after testing. positive for cove at 19. it's the 1st time that the 79 year old has had the coin, a virus vice president, comedy harris has also been identified as a close contact. our white house correspondent, kimberly hallett reports. wednesday was the last time the u. s. president joe biden was seen publicly returning to the white house from an event in massachusetts. he appeared in good health, put out in every way, but on thursday the white house confirmed biden had contracted coven. 19 president

a very powerful antiviral. and that further reduces his risk of serious on that anti viral is packs low bit and well, it's not clear which strain of cobra the president has contracted. thousands of americans have been hit by an uptick. the arm across a very it be a 5 responsible for a wave of recent covered cases in the united states packs low bid if taken early is one of the top treatments. oh, those closest to the president are so far testing negative. dr. joe biden. the 1st lady reassured americans, she was in good health and had no intention of halting her public schedule. vice president comalla harris has also tested negative binding isn't the 1st u. s. president to contract co bid in october of 2020. donald trump also got the
disease eventually requiring 3 nights of hospital care. for now, the white house staff has been reduced to essential employees only. well the president recovers, but given his mild case, there are no plans to transfer his executive powers to his vice president. kimberly hell can al jazeera the white house. well, there's still plenty more ahead for you this news hour and to day. ah, anger roberts and a brazilian sevilla off to another police raid leaves 18 people dead. desperate for help, thousands flee their homes during tribal unrest and sued on now aid group. say they can't reach them. and in sport, we have an exclusive interview with african footballer of the year santa monica. ah,
now turkey says russia and ukraine are expected to sign a d later on friday that will we open black see ports green shipments of in stock in ukraine since the war began back in february. and that's led to a rise in global food prices out there. understands at this deal cause for a joint control center to be set up in istanbul, which will shed your shipments. ukrainian vessels will guide the grain ships through mind waters in and out of port. russia agrees not to attack any of the shipments as they move. and turkey with support from the united nations will inspect the ships to lay any russian fears of weapons smuggling. the agreement will last 4 months and be renewed automatically will let spring and send him cassie ali . she is across this forest in istanbul. and i'm can you talk us through a little more about what we know about the steel wellness? i say we are expecting the deal to take place within 4 and a half hours. 4 30 pm,
a stumble local time. a delegation from ukraine and russia will be attending this signature ceremony and turkish president, judge, update bardon, will be a with united nations secretary general antonio gutierrez to sign this ceremony. this is what we expect for this afternoon. as you have also mentioned, there are 4 important items in this agreement, which is the 1st establishing, the joint control and coordination center, and is stumble to check it to, to audit the safety of this exports or trade mechanism from ukraine to world markets. another. another detail is the inspections of the ship. as russia is concerned, that wars might be brought through these ships to ukraine and ukraine is concerned about the safety of its wanes delivery to the world markets. also, the inspection is very important. and in terms of the safe massage as a,
as we all know, 3 ukraine had 3 ports or trade, and 2 of them are already under russian control. know the support is on the refraining from florida and the shores of all the support are already mine. we've been hearing that the, the shoes of odessa a port will not be d mind as if it will require a lot of time to complete that the mining operation. that's why there will be some a say for saw just for the vessels afraid and agreeing of the grades and fertilizers, and to the turkish court. of course, the seal is important in another way, as you know, alone with ukraine. russia is also one of the world's biggest grains supplier, its grades even though they are not under sanctions, can not switch to the world markets because of the other factors that are
sanctioned, like the banking system, the system that's my cell will pay the way for the russian for them for why the market as important as it will be a very success for every united nations landmark success actually, especially after the ukrainian war broke out at the beginning of this year. and this will be a very big success story when it's completed for the un secretary general. tony, i've been a warning world about the coming. he has been warning the world of multiple fan and it can be in many places around the world in 2022 and in 2023. the condition living full nations, especially in terms of food, will be worse in the coming year course within the as you play more iraq, that the full price to sorta le, close the world. and through these millions of grains reaching to the world. my
kids, the foot prices are also expect to come down on the other hand for turkey with the agreements today. and it is also a success, as it has said, that the feel on the leadership of the night under the leadership of the united nation as turkish president is one of the unique leaders who can both speak, ukrainian, or russian presence at the very same time. keeping a sound from the conflict so far, look at the potential impact will be a little later this news hours was him only in assemble. thanks so much. now moving on and fire crews and lebanon's capital are wanting that the remaining grain silo is that the bay route forwards are at risk of collapsing, rising temperatures, and the feminine taishan of the grain. there has spunk fires. at the storage facilities last month, the silos were badly damaged and the explosion that they report in 2020,
that killed more than 200 people, was in a hotter, joins us now live from the capital bay route anna, can you talk us through just how serious these fires have been well, the silos behind me at baby port experts as well as fire fighters. tell us that the yes indeed they risk collapse. it's hard to say when it could be in the next few hours, days, or, or even weeks. but the bottom line is this, the wheat, the corn that is stabilizing the, the structure, thousands of tons of we've been corn, they are slowly burning. and if they continue to burn, or if you remove them than the structure collapses, if i just get out of the way you can see the smoke rising in recent weeks. there has been really a series of, of fires. the last one was the ignited last night. fire fighters are telling
us that the army created a cordon around the structure, not allowing them to get close because of the risk of, of, of, of it collapsing. and they don't have the equipment in order to reach the source of the fire. so if this continues to burn, then the what really holds the silos up to keep it standing will continue to burn and there's 9 meters under ground. filled with grain filled with corn, which is turning into oil. so really, this silos has a lot of symbolic meaning for it, for the people of the city and of this country in particular for the victims of the families of the victims of, of this devastating blast which really killed more than 200 people and devastated neighborhoods they see this as a witness, a witness to a crime that still has not had it has not been solved. so it will not be easy to
save the structure from collapsing. a french study experts are, are talking about the structure starting to tilt, and i'm not sure if you can actually see the crack in the middle of the structure. but for many, this structure saved the western part of the city. it absorbed a lot of the blasts and zanna just looking at some of the debris there around the port. still this is obviously what is it been this close to the 2nd anniversary now of the port exclusion? what's the latest on the investigation? yes, august 4 will be the 2nd year anniversary. since that explosion, there has been no justice. there has been no accountability and there have been no answers. and this is why so many people are frustrated for them. this was a man made disaster tons and tons of ammonium nitrate was stored on safely in one
of the course warehouse with flay, mobile materials. there was a fire that eventually led to the blast, but it is still not known what caused the fire. it is still not known who owned the ammonium nitrate, which was stored at the ports with some investigation, suggesting that when they were 1st offloaded from the ship, at least 2000 tons were taken away. and 700 tons remains in that warehouse. so. so many questions on answered the judge, which has been investigating the case has been facing a lot of pressure from the political establishment. the security establishment, as well as the judicial establishment which has been really politicized. in this case, legal losses have been filed against him. he hasn't been able to issue indictments . the investigation has been suspended for 6 months. and 2 officials who had wanted to question and he had subsequently issued the arrest warrants were re elected to parliament in may. so people have really lost faith in the domestic investigation.
they've been calling for an international investigation, but that has not happened. then what are there for us in the lebanese capital barriers? thank you, then. now italy will hold a snap election on september the 25th after the president dissolved parliament. the resignation of prime minister mario druggie caused the collapse of the coalition government on thursday at a rainy report. now from rome, italy's president, sir, drew montela, announcing a 70 day timeline for early elections. clearly a decision he did not want to take, nor shall he went on to ship out of the parliament or the early his own of parliament is always a last resort. particularly if the government, as it is the case in this period, he, although the parliament has many important tasks to complain, more in the interests of our countrymen. but the developments in the political situation have led to this decision. his announcement came hours after mario
draggy stepped down on thursday. the prime minister made his last statement in parliament before tendering his resignation. jerbill thank. busy inquiry, making sure that even central bankers hearts are touched some times. thank you for this, and thanks for all the work we had done together during this time. draggy lead a government for less than 18 months. many leaders across europe saw me as a steady hand to pull italy and maybe even the whole continent out of the pandemic . he helped steer billions of dollars, have recovery funds to italy, the largest recipient in the years zone, and was a leading voice. and europe support of ukraine against russia. but in the end, this central banker couldn't wrangle the diverse group of parties in his coalition, each with its own priorities. he couldn't tame the populace because populace fivestar movement splintered, and ernest, who couldn't jane the other populace the leg from the,
from the right wing. and because they're living. so there's a great payoff right now underway while how are lamenting the government's collapse . one party is thrilled the far right wing brothers of italy currently leading in the polls looks likely to win more seats than any other skeptical of brussels and policies. it's not clear, it will be able to manage relationships with other e u leaders as well as the rocky and some worry could even put further e recovery fund payouts at risk. adarine algebra. rhone, tribal fighting and sudan, blue nile state has forced thousands of people from their homes there. the volatile security situation also means that aid organizations haven't been able to reach many of the displaced families. the violence in blue nile which borders south food on andy therapy has caused the security and humanitarian crisis in the region. have been morgan reports now from blue nile capital dallas in for the past week,

even though they have announced the destruction of or system we heard yesterday from the us defense, mister lloyd austin, that they're going to deliver even more numbers of these missiles and the numbers that we know now that, that could you could nance have is 20 so they have now 1717 of this long sure, of very precise on g b as guided miss i. so the fighting here is that the need to, to be extended more. and maybe it's going to get more even more and more fire between the both parties, lama there on the ground for us in done yet, said he thank you so much, buddy, and stay safe. now protesters in iraq have tried to storm the turkish consulate and baghdad. they blamed turkey for an attack in the semi autonomous kurdish region on wednesday. that killed 8 people. anchor though, says it isn't responsible, not lit up. why hid reports now from baghdad? funerals for the victims of when his days artillery attack in the semi autonomous

a cooling a massacre. thing the punishment doesn't hit the crime in order to money on to 0. now as we've been saying, we expect a deal to be signed in the coming hours between russia and ukraine and turkey to open black c ports. so grain can be shipped from them for more on that deal, let speak now to stella nord hagan in geneva. she's a senior technical specialist at the global alliance for improve nutrition. stella, thank you for your time. this is obviously an enormously important development for countries well beyond the region. and this is a deal that specifically covers a shipping route. we know the land car doors obviously haven't been moving the grand they need to. so how much of a difference do you think this will actually make? yes, this will make a difference. this is an important deals that we see coming out of turkey and very good news for us that work on food security and nutrition to come in to see it coming out. at the same time, we need to make sure that it is followed through on. and we also need to recognize that at this point, it probably won't be enough on its own to stem the global food insecurity. crisis
that we see worldwide. but it's good news. well, the speaking of the global crisis that we've been seeing, the u. s. has been saying that this was about weapon ising food. now, rhetoric aside, just how effective has this blockade been holding the world hosted, so to speak. so the conflict overall, including the blockade and also coming of some of the secondary effects of conflict that have restricted the flows of grain and also oil, see crops and fertilizers from russia. and ukraine have had a very important impact on the world's food situation. at the same time, it's important to realize that that is because it started the situation already and a position of vulnerability. the ongoing effects of climate related disasters as well as the effects of the cove at 19 crisis and the economic fall are related to that meant that we were going into this some this spring already in a week situation for food security worldwide. the effects of the war on top of that
really kind of exacerbated and already bad situation and definitely have made it worse. indeed, i see russian foreign minister said caleb rob is about to head to africa and he's been assuring countries there that moscow will ensure its obligations for food and other exports. but many african countries have been feeling this grand shortage more acutely than most and the steel does also, i believe, cover russian grain. yes, certainly african nuff soup countries have been most effective here. we know that about 20 percent of africans already suffer from malnutrition. and many of those countries are heavily dependent on imports for their food supplies, including from, from russia and from ukraine. and also what makes them more vulnerable is that many of the consumers in african countries. they really spend a large part of their income is on buying food, much more than we would spend in europe or in north america and other parts of high income countries. and that means that when there is an increase in food prices, they really feel it. you really feel it's not only on what you buy,
the grocery store, you feel it in terms of how it affects the rest of your budget. so it can have really important effects in terms of, of food insecurity, but also in terms of poverty. the world bank estimates that for every percentage point to increase in food prices that leads to about 10000000 people falling into acute poverty. so their series affects threat africa, one of crises. i see that the wild food program has already cut their aid to south to dawn. the horn of africa obviously also dealing with a terrible drought. now just taking a bit of a step back here. why is the world so dependent on specific countries, full grain? it's a good question and i think it's one that probably a lot of a lot of countries will be looking into seriously over the coming months and years about how they can improve their own resilience by diversifying their food supplies . partly it's a question of simple economic competitive advantage that ukraine is known as the bread basket of europe because it's a great place to produce many of these grains. it has the right climate. it has the right supporting kind of infrastructure and technology. so it's
a very efficient and effective producer of these grains. that's good because it means that they can produce them ats, lower costs than you might in other places and contribute to world food supplies overall. but when we run into situations like the present, we see that being too reliant on just a handful of countries for our food supplies means that we're not very resilient, did that we are really vulnerable when shots like this happen. there's also a 2nd layer of kind of vulnerability that's brought on by the fact that as kind of the global population, we are reliant on really only a few major food crops, things like mays, wheat and rice. so when there's a shock that affects 2 of those, as in this situation, it doesn't leave us too much else to work with because so much of our diet is coming from just a few crops. so there are several ways in which in the future we can hopefully look to diversify. not only what we're important where we're importing from, but also what we're importing and build the more resilient world stellan. what hegan there from the global alliance for improve nutrition. thank you. so much for
your time, stella. thank you. i'm moving on and a sub in corona virus. cases in australia is putting pressure on hospitals, hence due to a highly contagious sub variant of ami chrome that's driving a fresh wave of cove 19 infections across the asia pacific. sarah, comparable with now from brisbin. hospital admissions from covered 19 are at record levels. in some states in australia, the countries in the grip of a 3rd wave of the oma kron variant with more than 300000 cases, recorded this week and the peak expected in august. i think there's a little bit of uncertainty, but we're probably gonna reach record numbers and record numbers and hospital potentially embarrass parts of the country now, which is the concern bidding, as i said, we're starting from a complete position of disadvantage in having hospital which are completely full as they normally are. australia is among the most heavily vaccinated countries against coven, 1995 percent of the population above the age of 16 has received 2 doses. the
federal government is now offering a full dose to those over 30 years, but so far has been cautioned to take up the offer. both shock give the additional protection we're seeing that very clearly from across the world. so essentially we just need to get more of those shots in the new ways evictions is not just being felt here in australia, but also across the asia pacific. even micronesia, which had been covered for you until now as has 1st case reported in the community, epidemiologist. so encouraging pacific nations to expand the roll out of the 4th dose of the covered 19 vaccine to avert a spike in infections in countries sticking the asian pacific region where a lot of countries get their infection right down. didn't have a big history of infections. but we're relying on a vaccination, we still have the same problem that we, we ended up needing to really get bash protection from these new sub barriers. when you saw the variance of the latest challenge to china. 0 type of policy was
shanghai rolling out mass testing, and residents now required to take a p. c. i covered 19 test, at least once a week until august. in the chinese territory of macau, a government imposed extended lockdown will be lifted and casinos allowed to reopen on saturday. south korea, you cases are nearly 10 times higher than a month ago, with nearly $70000.00 cases on friday. at the warning from the health agency that it could serge 2 over $200000.00 daily cases next month sir clark al jazeera. now the u. s. house of representatives as pastor bill to protect access to contraception. democrats introduced the legislation after the supreme court ended the national right to abortion by overturning the roe v wade ruling. the bill would create a federal right for people to access contraceptives. it is yet to pass, though in the senate are soaring. fuel prices, wildlife have made many consumers think very seriously about getting an electric
vehicle at some con, theseus con, let go of the classics of yesterday. and that not how spunk the creation of new hybrid vehicles. from panels reports now from san marcos and california work wagner's volkswagen rolled off the assembly line back in 1962. it's definitely my daily driver. and if i'm going a grocery shopping of them, if i'm going to hockey, ah, if i'm running errands like this is, this is a car. well, most beetles from the kennedy era have long since made a one week trip to the junkyard. wagner's runs like a dream and fast to because this old beetle is now an electric vehicle. it's clean, it's quiet. ah, it's reliable, is a lot less moving parts, and a lot, lessing go wrong. is a joy to drive or, and more owners of broken down or mechanically challenge classic cars or taking them to shops like evie west, where owner mike bream and his expert crew,

maybe its been handed down or, you know, our customer has driven it since high school. so typically, automotive enthusiasts best describes our customers right now. those customers are also laughing at sky high fuel prices. bream says he's concerned about the environment and global warming, but reducing c o 2 emissions isn't his big motivation. a motorhead, i'm a hot router i might speak, i'm wagner, is proud. that is old. the w isn't making the climate crisis worse. i'm excited to . ah, you know, take it up to the mountains, driving through the national forest, not polluting anything, whether it's for going green or going for speed. classic cars are getting a new electronic lease on life. rob reynolds al jazeera san marcos, california ah, to sports and the wells athletics championships now and no alliance has retained
