10:02 pm
a murder for hire. applaud and a member of iran's revolution regard is warranted by the f. b. i on charges relating to the alleged plan. 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 especially appalling example of the government of iran, perpetrating a grievous acts of transnational violence in violation of us laws and our national sovereignty. while our white house correspondent, kimberly how kit joins us live from washington, d. c. hi there. kimberly good to see you at one of the details. well, what we know is that the person that has been charged with these alleged crimes is still at large. in fact, he was charge in of said she is 45 year old iranian national by the name of sharon poor sofie. he is also known by the alias of massey rate zion. now what we do know
10:03 pm
is that he allegedly tried to pay some $300000.00 to assassinate the former national security adviser to the trumpet ministration john bolton. and that this plot was allegedly to take place either in washington dc where we are standing or in the us state of maryland, which is just north of here. now, this obviously was thwarted, but what we do know is that there are no efforts by us officials to try and detain and arrest this man and to see him brought to justice. now, oh, we can tell you that this is not the 1st time that the department of justice says that it is uncovered. plots against u. s. officials on us soil by the iranians. but certainly this is an egregious one, given the fact that this is such a high level u. s. government official. and kimberly won't spend the reaction from them. john bolton himself. well, we have heard from john bolton. he issued
10:04 pm
a statement and he has been issuing comments of 2 national television stations. what he has been saying is, not only is he grateful to the u. s. justice department for stopping this plot, but also that he believes that underscores the threat that the united states and the wider sort of middle east faces as a result of the instability and destabilizing activity that iran is causing. in fact, he says that he believes that he is not the only one that the i a toll is in tehran are trying to assassinate. so this is the kind of government that we have in iran, that is a quote from john bolton. i can tell you that that quote is consistent with some of the testimony that was put forward by the current secretary of state antony blinking back in april before the u. s. congress. he said that he had knowledge of threats by iran, against us officials both past and present. so this is significant. we should also
10:05 pm
tell you that the white house has reacted to this latest as charges that have been laid against the 45 year old iranian national. that did try to murder john bolton. what we could tell you is that the national security adviser, currently, jake sullivan, has said the by the administration will not waiver to protect and defend all americans against threats of violence and terrorism. should iran attack any of our citizens or rom will face severe consequences? and just very quickly, this does come at a particular precarious time. given the fact that this administration is trying to revive the 2015 agreement to limit or was nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. in fact, the final text of that has been sent to the following negotiations. vienna to both to ron and washington d. c. it's not clear whether or not this going to sort of her a,
10:06 pm
in any way foil those efforts to revive that 2015 agreement that we should point out. donald trump pulled out of there may of 2018. so there's a certainly a very interesting development and it certainly could potentially complicate those matters. kimberly, how could joining us with the latest there live from the white house? kimberly thank you. with there are growing fears over the fates of europe's biggest nuclear power station. the russian occupied sapp parisha plant in southern ukraine has come under attack several times over the past week ukrainians. a warning that the russians are preparing to connect the facility with crimea, which they annex back in 2014 or the u. n. nuclear watchdog is warning of a nuclear disaster, john hender and explains now from keith in petro coach and says, ukraine's apparition, nuclear plant faces
10:07 pm
a serious danger of radioactive milk down. he says, he believes the russian military occupying the plant is shelling it to disconnect it from the ukrainian power grid and reconnect it to a power system in russian controlled crimea. taking all the power with it. they have already cut 3 of the 4 connections to the ukranian grid, he says, and if they sever the 4th, that poses a serious nuclear risk is a risk or full, losing the external power through the plug. and it is dangerous because the lilburn will block out more until the start and diesel generator. so the, if they stop zone, you will have, like melton of 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 is presence of that plant that is
10:08 pm
endangering it. and they've issued a statement demanding that russia leave and turn over control to ukrainian authorities. the russians in turn blamed the ukrainians for putting the plant at risk by firing on the facility. britton's defense ministry predicts the invasion is about to enter a new phase with the heaviest, fighting shifting 350 kilometers to the frontline that stretches from separation to her son nearby in battle. scarred mc alive. residents have emerged from a 54 hour curfew. they've come out to queue up for water and food in a region that's been the target of russian bomb since the invasion began in february. ludmilla, steve goes among the thousands of displaced people evacuating ships sion cove, a village near her son. now, under russian control, the daily bombardment is taking its toll credit for years in a certain budget. of course, people are afraid, but every one is hoping that they will not reach us and things will get better. but

many houses in our village are destroyed. and people have died. there are a 150000 people in the city, and the red cross is all need some kind of help. john henderson, al jazeera keith, what? as of wednesday, european union member states can no longer import cold from russia. it's part of a 5th at sanctions package on moscow to cope with the hard turn away from russian energy. you countries as setting power consumption caps, i before the war, russia supplied 40 percent of europe's gas. replacing that, just before the northern winter, is nearly impossible. in july e u energy ministers agreed a voluntary plan to cut their gas consumption by 15 percent starting in august. the u says if it's fully cut off from russian gas this winter, it could cost members states economists as much as 1.5 percent of their g. d p. this coal being unloaded in the german town of line bah, is from russia party to one of the last consignments to germany before the
10:10 pm
e. u. embargo took hold until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now it's coal is banned, its oil is soon to follow. and far less of its gas is being piped here than was planned. meaning across the 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 long, not the long term solution is a certain 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 has not done sustainable long term perspective. the difficulty for the german government is that many of its leaders has 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, v. as in v opinions,
10:11 pm
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 and germany have technical abilities that are realistic and police economically functioning, jobs and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own sovereignty upping it cuts. but saying that and doing that are 2 different things, speak as very many power stations and industries have based their plans on an uninterrupted delivery of coal. and more often gas, such as here, the learners, aluminium foundry ins, all tal where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices. mom was recent, i saw an ag, i walked so far starting up a foundry, luckys hitting up the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or overnight and then heading it up again in the morning. is crazily expensive? that's why we now either run it around the clock in 3 ships or shut it off
10:12 pm
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, their country took longer to follow suit, but has now done so, as it must be said, has the e u. but getting out of a dependence on russian gas is proving much more difficult. dominant cane al jazeera berlin. well, in spain they were planned blackouts and thermostat regulations is pot voluntary consumption cuts, but local say is just too hot to comply. leah harding has more it has been a sweltering summer in madrid, but his temperatures have soared. so too has the cost of fuel. so the spanish government has mandated that offices in stores cannot set their cooling systems below 27 degrees celsius. in an area dependent on tourism locals are afraid the

10:14 pm
display light is going to make much se burnett. shops have to turn off window lights after 10 pm. however, street lighting will not be affected when i didn't know mcglochan. why would visitors come? because when you go out for a walk, would you want to see his joy soon? we won't have lights. so if you decide to come to here and everything is switched off a couple, you're going to ask yourself, what's the point? the measures will be reversed in winter when regulations will prohibit indoor areas not to be warmed above 27 degrees. leah harding al jazeera inflation in the u. s. could be cooling the consumer price index, which kind 8.5 percent of the year through july compared with 9 point one percent back in june. while street is up and the figures are a welcome reprieve for consumers, full gas prices and air fairs come down still to come. now just climbing,
