7:03 pm
and if they sever the 4th, that poses a serious nuclear risk is a risk or full, losing the external power through the plan. and it is dangerous because the lilburn will blanco mold as a rule of a certain diesel generator. so if they stop zone, you will have, like melton of a nuclear horror over here, he's asking for the plant to be declared a demilitarized zone monitored by the international atomic energy agency, out of control of the russian army. the foreign ministers of the g 7 group of industrialized nations agree they say it's russia's presence of that plant that endangering it. and they've issued a statement demanding that russia leave and turn over control to ukrainian authorities. the russians in turn blame the ukrainians for putting the plant at risk by firing on the facility. britain's defense ministry predicts the invasion is about to enter a new phase with the heaviest,

7:05 pm
compared with 9 point one percent team june. motoring is awesome if you use our welcome reprieve to consumers for gas prices. and if it has come down, president joe biden said wednesdays data. encouraging we're seeing some size. inflation may beginning to moderate. that's what happens when you build in economy from the bottom up in the middle out. well, they do very well and everyone has a chance. it gives everyone a chance to make progress. now i want to be clear with the global challenges we face from the war in europe to disruption of supply chains and pandemic shutdowns. in asia, we, we could face this not headwind the months of head. our work is far from over, but 2 things should be clear. first, economic plan is working. the 2nd is building an economy that will reward work and bringing out why have corresponding kimberly, how can now who joins us live from washington. they say, hello, they,
7:06 pm
kimberly tell us a little bit more about these numbers. what do they mean in a practical sense? well, the economic plan that the president was referencing their is essentially the monetary policy. in other words, the federal reserve raised interest rates and what the idea was behind it is by raising interest rates. it would cool the economy. in other words, it would stop these inflationary prices. and essentially that's what the data for july shows is that it is working, at least for now. so what the president is saying is, this is an encouraging side of the question becomes, is this the peak? in other words, the $9.00, the inflation rate that we saw last month here in the united states was a 40 year high. that was pretty alarming to most americans who been struggling to pay for things like gas and shelter. and. c food prices, and so this is really taking the bulk of their income and it's only gone down
7:07 pm
a little bit in terms of the price spiking that's going on. and that's due to the sort of falling energy prices and still a point 5 percent. that's still high. so the question is whether this is peaked or whether this is just one month, the aberration. so this is an encouraging side, but it's going to take more than one month in order to see a trends. and kimberly, is this good news for president bond and well, certainly the white house would like to think so. and this comes on the heels of a string of legislative victories for the white house that has had some successes recently on capitol hill in passing legislation to address a rising drug prices as well as tackling climate change. and so this is certainly welcome news. this is evidence for white house says that it's academic policies are working, that it is controlling inflation even though as you heard the president there. so a long way to go, and the reason that the white house is celebrating this is not only because the
7:08 pm
president needs to increase his approval ratings right now. i. he's was somewhere at 38 percent or even a little less. it's just going up by the latest numbers to 40 percent. 55 percent of americans still disapprove, but it's going back up. and that's good news for the president, given the fact that we are less than a 100 days now from congressional mid term elections. the president's democratic party wants to hang on to the house of representatives and the u. s. senate, if they want to continue their legislative agenda for another 2 years. so the president sees this is a welcoming sign, but again, like can change in the next few months, but still the president hopes this is a trajectory that will continue. i'm sure he does. thank you very much for the update. kimberly help it live for us in washington, dc. still in the us and former president donald trump has refused to answer questions under oath in new york, he to the attorney general's office is part of
7:09 pm
a long running investigation looking into his real estate business dealings for more in the story lives bring in gabriel, alexander who's outside to the attorney general's office in new york? hello. they gave what happened. today's questioning, it's been difficult to keep up with all of trump legal proceedings. yeah, that's right. donald trump is been inside this high high office building you see behind me for about 3 hours. now. this is all part of the conclusion of we think a 2019 investigation by the new york attorney general's office. and right now, lawyers for the attorney general are questioning donald trump about his business dealings. what specifically? well, the attorney general's office is that they believe that trump fraudulently inflated the value of his trump organization assets is hotels in golf courses. for example,
7:10 pm
why is that important? because if you inflate the value of your assets, you in theory would get a lower interest rate on loans from banks. so that is fraud, and that is what they are investigating. now, trump is said that this is a witch. and that he is not done any wrong doing, but this is all part of the question. it's taking place in this building behind me right now. now, trump put out a statement saying that he will not answer any questions you will plead the 5th amendment, which the constitution allows for people that don't want to incriminate themselves when in or doing interviews or depositions in front of law enforcement or lawyers. so yeah, so if he's not answering questions and why is he been in there for 3 hours? the answer is because the lawyers are still might want to ask him all the questions, even if he refuses to answer eric trunk. his oldest son gave a deposition to this, this the attorney general's office, and he pleaded the 5th amendment nearly $500.00 times in questioning. that lasted
7:11 pm
multiple hours and 2020. so we think that, that potentially what's going on right now could be some hours to go. and gabriel, how does this old plane to his potential run the presidency that trump has been hinting at? coming up in 2024? well, it depends who you ask. i mean, trump is clearly using this as a chance to rally his supporters. he put out a statement saying that this is a, which he's supporters say that that this is just the, the quote unquote deep state trying to, you know, tarnish him before a potential 2020 for presidential run. trump hasn't said if he will run for president, but he's sure certainly giving him that he will. there's already been a campaign like video that's been put out. take a listen to a little bit of what it had to say. we are a nation that is weaponized law enforcement against the opposing political party
7:12 pm
like never before. we've never seen anything like this where a nation that no longer has a free and fair, fresh fake news is about all you get. we are a nation where free speech is no know how to point to point out that this investigation here in new york by the attorney general is a civil investigation, not a criminal one. so that means that trump could potentially face fines in the millions of dollars that could cripple his business. or he could reach a settlement or the attorney general here could say, i want to take this to a trial. but bottom line is, this is a civil case, but it's still certainly ripe with a lot of land mines, potentially both economically and politically. for donald trump in the weeks and months ahead, as he is now facing multiple investigations by the f b i by congress. and by here by the attorney general in new york as well. so if you
7:13 pm
have a seat belt, you might want to buckle up because the political situation here in the us could be getting but very much a rocky ride in the coming months. really years before the 2024 election. greg to speak to you as always. gabriel, alexander. i live for us in new york. thank you. the us justice department says it's charged a member of ron's revolutionary god, in connection with a plan to murder former former trump administration. national security advisor john bolton, sharah, post sofie is wanted by the f. b i on charges related to be alleged murder. if a high, a plot prosecutor said this game was likely in retaliation to the january 2020 strike, the killed the head of a runs, a lead comes force, custom sala, money. we face a rising threat from authoritarian regimes who seek to reach beyond their own borders to commit acts of repression including inside the united states. this is an

7:20 pm
remembered being loved, staying in people's heart and my iraq, she, atlanta, i'm tired of sata has called on the countries judiciary to dissolve parliament by the end of the next of next week and asked the president nominates and new prime minister. it comes after wakes of protests and is seen by his supporters, whose don't the parliament building. my motor. abdullah het has more from baghdad. the political crisis in iraq is getting from bad tours between statements and counter statements from rival politicians. the supporters of she, our leader mocked her the souther are camping right behind me in front of the parliament. now they have been commanded by the leaders to continue the sit in until the demands are met. their demands are, the parliament be dissolved and every elections be held as a way out of the current crisis. but not the southern himself has taken the crisis
7:21 pm
into a higher level by calling on the supreme judiciary council to dissolve the parliament and has given an ultimatum until the end of the upcoming week. meanwhile, has called on his supporters to continue their sit in until their demands are met. now, according to article number 64 of the iraqi constitution, the parliament can be dissolved in only 2 cases. and that is if it is normally functioning. the 1st case, if 2 thirds of the lawmakers request, the parliament be dissolved. the 2nd case, if the prime minister requests that parliament be dissolved and that is approved by the president of the states in both cases in both cases, that should go into a vote. and if the majority of the lawmakers vote with yes,
7:22 pm
then the parliament is dissolved. but there is political, norman iraq, the god gives the supreme judiciary council, the authority to dissolve the parliament not by constitution, but by political norm. because by virtue of the app, the political authority, the authority that the supreme judiciary has over state institutions, it can to levine when in case one state institution is not functioning for a long time. and that is causing a problem. in this case, like the parliament hasn't been functioning for the past 10 months, in this case, in this case, the supreme judiciary council can intervene and pass a judgment into this dispute. the number of maryan soldiers killed in an attack over the weekend has been revised up to 42 on wednesday, the army says the attack was perpetrated by it suspected jihadists is one of the
7:23 pm
highest death tolls in a single attack. during a decades long insurgency had happened on sunday in the town of tacit in the troubled tree border region, where marly burkina faso and near converge. as of wednesday, european union member states can no longer import cole from russia. it's part of a 5th sanctions package on moscow to quote, with a hard turn away from russian in a g e u countries as setting power consumption camps. tom nick kane explains from berlin. this coal being unloaded in the germantown of linebarger is from russia party, one of the last consignments to germany before the embargo took hold. until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now its colon band, its oil is soon to follow, and far less of its gas is being piped here than was planned. meaning across the
7:24 pm
country, much of industry is having to contemplate buying fossil fuels from elsewhere. i think there will be only a temporal return of the coal fired power plants to the market. so this is a non, not long term solution. this as a solution for the next 3, maybe 4 years, which is a significant contribution to solving the gas problem or the security of supply problem. but it is not sustainable long term perspective. the difficulties of the german government is that many of its leaders have spent much of their political lives looking to phase out fossil fuels. and yet they now find themselves having to buy them in on a short term basis. we have, in the opinion, we see how dependent we are on energy imports from all over the world. and in this case, especially from russia, it's important to know that we in germany have technical abilities that are realistic and produced economically functioning, jobs and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own
7:25 pm
sovereignty cuts. but saying that and doing that are 2 different things because very many power stations and industries have based their plans on an uninterrupted delivery of coal. and more often gas, such as here, the hood is a new minion foundry, involved towel where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices. i'm with this and that's what i hope to find. setting up a found, we like this hitting up, the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or not. and then hitting it up again in the morning. is crazily expensive? that's why we now either run it around the clock in 3 ships will shut it off completely. the company that runs this power station decided to get out of a dependency on russian coal. soon after the war and ukraine began, the country took longer to follow suit, but has now done so, as it must be said, has the e u. but getting out of dependence on russian guess is proving much more difficult
7:26 pm
. dominant cane al jazeera berlin, 5 days after began a huge fire in cuba, his main oil depot appears to be contained, with millions, already living through chronic power cuts. the energy crisis on the island is threatening to get worse. ed august and reports from montana. i'm not sure on sunday and exploding cybil so great 100 kilometers away in havana. but by tuesday evening, the smoke had turned from sit black to light gray evidence that much of the large fire at cuba main oil depot was out. but with a thick, toxic smug over the city of mate answers, people are still worried. you're on the cedar, i'm covered up because i see the clouds. i smell the cellphone up and i don't want
7:27 pm
this to affect me in the future. i'm okay. good. after that, i already were expecting the situation to worse and the oil, everything that was lost or damaged like oil reserves, everything will be harder. now. the cuban air force used helicopters, manufactured in the soviet era to douse the flames. but more modern technology was needed. mexico and venezuela sending more than $100.00 specialists, technology and tons of extinguishing foam. but material supports did not come from the united states upsetting many like the only law, the u. s. offered technical assistance, but in the end we haven't seen anything concrete. so how about our fight? i think it's a lack of humanity above all because we're not talking about a political issue. we're talking about a humanitarian issue. in the 2020 u. s. presidential campaign trail joe biden had promised to reverse the sanctions former president donald trump imposed on the island. but in office,
7:28 pm
the bulk of them had remained in place, including sanctions on oil tankers, which aggravates the islands energy crisis. legal experts say u. s. law does not prevent the united states from providing material assistance. 4 days after lightning strike ketchup is biggest oil storage facility. the blaze finally seems to be under control. but analysts say the loss of 4 supertankers will only aggravate cuba is already critical. energy crisis is most claims extinguished . rescue workers have now entered the disasters and for the 1st time to search for missing firefighters. and while the lights is still on for some, he was energy crisis is set to become critical. ed augustin, al jazeera montana, says cuba, the african football's governing body cap has officially announced a new african civilly to stand next to you 24 of the continent. the best haines will, can pay for $100000000.00 the prize money with the winner pocketing $11600000.00.
7:29 pm
that's in the 5 times once on ortho, in the current african champions league organizers, hope the project will boost to african football's economics, which is one of the biggest problems of f, the top every come clubs participating in the current champions league is they spend a lot of money on transport, and they spend a lot of money on accommodation. and when they, when the money they get does not justify or compensate for the use expenses they've undertaken. so the 1st $24.00 claps that you want to be part of the african football league. we will give them a contribution every of $2500000.00 to use. and i know they use some of that money to buy and, and recruit some of the best pays on the computer, but also to assist with their transport. and with all of the other expenses,
7:30 pm
but there has been some negative reaction. south africa's plays union says the project is unworkable. and could rec, professional football in africa. comparisons will also be drawn with the sibling in europe, which launched and spectacularly failed within a matter of days later, days last year, following a backlash from fans well governing body faith. it was against a europe super league, but is backing africa's version. we had often when speak about football is too much wood, which is played right. and there's probably right in some parts of the world in other parts of the world, there is not enough. in this particular case, this is definitely a historic moment because it is currently the most exciting football project a globally in africa to boost to improve club football.
