no employee exhibition that is entering new territory and has been organizing employee exhibits for nearly 100 years. but this is the 1st time one has been open to the public. more than 400 of the met 1700 workers submitted. there are so even the security guards here are artistically talent, especially the security guards demand for me. that's really interesting. it's the people who have jobs that don't seem to be ones that involve necessarily the artistic talent. it felt that exhibition design manager daniel kershaw to organize the works installation, gives you a slice of what's on the minds of more varied types of artists in new york. then you can possibly get anywhere else. the exhibit is a sign of appreciation for the met employees and a fresh approach to art from an age old institution. ah,

russia accuses ukraine of sabotage after an attack on the nova. a halt, got dam. ah, hello i mary. i'm demising in london. you're watching alger 0 also coming up on the program. who will compensate the world's poorest for the damage caused by climate change? cop 27 begins in egypt. rescue operations continue after a plane crash lands in tanza, near lake victoria. at least 19 people, a confirmed dad to stand off in sicily, the captain of a migrant rescue ship refuses to leave port until everyone is allowed to leave the vessel. ah, we begin in ukraine and moscow backed officials in the harrison regional saying
1:02 am
they have been power outages. after reports that ukrainian forces attacked a crucial dam. the 30 meter high dam controls a large volume of water along the knee pro river, which cuts through eastern ukraine. since october, both russia and ukraine repeatedly accused each other of planning to breach the dam using explosives. or the nova kafka dam is located near the city of harrison, which ukrainian troops have been pushing towards for weeks in an effort to recapture it from russian forces. downstream from the dam is russian control crimea, which supplies water to large parts of southern ukraine. or president odom is zalinski says that russia is suffering heavy losses in the eastern. danny at squadron is claiming that the countries now prepare a new assault on ukrainian energy infrastructure. as i beg reports from cr v. now we haven't heard anything directly from the ukrainians a back, those elect strikes on the down. but what we do know is that the ukraine have long
1:03 am
been concerned about the possibility of the russians blowing that down as they withdrew from cosign. now the general stuff of the ukraine on forces has said that they believe the russians want to blow it. they say that the reason for this is that because russia has told residents of the city to evacuate on the 10th of november cycling, the undermining of that done by the ukrainian forces. now the fighting in the round, carson has intensified. we're hearing that the shuttling has been more intense now than it has been over the last week. now they should rushing back to 30 in her son . have said that the ukrainians messing on the vehicles on the 1st on axis. but we also hearing from the ukranian that russia has around 20 to 25000 troops on the west side of the new pro river. so the car sun is still yet to happen. but we all ready hearing information and disinformation claims and kind of claims from both sides at the moment and the east of the country. the better for the mode is still ongoing. we heard from the russians saying that they had managed to enter the city,
1:04 am
but the ukrainians have been posting, which is of the inside. but i think that the unbreakable that they still hold it back. it's still a price for the russians. they want to be seen as making advances after a month of where they faced the counter offensive from the ukrainians and lost them to free. russia wants to gain control of the strategic hub for them. it gives him access to roads that lead to other parts of the country, but also politically, they want to show back in russia, they are making advances against ukrainians. well, as the u. n. 27, the climate conference opens in egypt. the world major logical organization has just published its latest state of climate report. and it's showing that delegates are going to have a difficult few weeks report says that this sea level rise. is it a record high double since $993.00 european out slots. so record amount of glasses and talk take see i dropped to its lowest level yet. and in september it rained for

the 1st time ever on greenland ice sheet, or that because the last 8 years have been the warmest on record, affecting millions of people, and costing millions of dollars. a horn of africa is experiencing its longest drought in 40 years. this puts nearly 20000000 people at risk of famine that was widespread flooding in pakistan this year. that's killed of one and a half 1000 people in affected 33000000. others that have been heat waves across china. the us and europe destroying crops and sending wildfires ripping through towns and cities. our plan to be sending the stress signal. the lights, a state of the global climate report is a chronicle of climate chaos as the world methodological organization so. so clearly change is happening with catastrophic speed. devastating lives and lively woods on every continents. delegates had caught $27.00 also gonna discuss this issue of who should pay compensation to developing nations for the effects of
1:06 am
climate change. the a haunting has more on that the seas have never been this high. the planet has never been this warm, distinguished delegate for 2 weeks representatives from nearly 200 countries. while whole talks in egypt on a continent already ravaged by severe drought in food shortages. the annual un summit is focused on global climate action and how to pay for it. every call is a medical break comp, every comp counts and every call should move us one step closer or multiple steps closer to that target of javion emissions by 2030 natural disasters are expensive costing billions of dollars. developing countries are some of the hardest hit by climate change, and they rely on assistance during heat waves, droughts, and devastating floods. like what we saw in pakistan earlier this year,
1:07 am
developing countries are, can t continued to invest in the climate action that they need to take in the long term and a short term. they need to see those funds flow from the developed countries who have greater historical responsibility for the causes of climate change. some savvy summits are not helpful and take too long to reach decisions that impact billions of people and are only decided by the world's elite. what do we want? on friday, hundreds of climate activists blocked the departure of private jets at amsterdam sky all airport to protest against the pollution caused by the aviation industry. however, some progress has been made. good news is that the 15 countries have been able to read you is there, i mean, just doing the best but 15 years it's mostly the european countries, sir, japan, united states, sir singapore,
1:08 am
and maybe have also much better technology got needs to be successful environment mitigation the pricing so far and being that you have been dropping. oh, expectations are high for this climate summit. but after a year of unprecedented natural disasters, action may come too late for some, lia hardin al jazeera. at least 19 people have been killed in a plane crash in tanzania, the aircraft crash in to late victoria, or is it attempted to land in the town of cobra? tanzania, as president, has expressed our condolences to those affective than his call for com. michael web reports. the plane was coming in to land. the small 50 you recovery times in here. that will run way ends on the shore of lake victoria, africa's largest lake. new york. um yeah. when the aircraft was about a 100 meters at mid air, it encountered problems in bad weather. it was raining on the plane plunged into

the water. everything is under control. the armies had to rescue missions and firefighters from the province of cu get are on the scene. they are fully equipped to deal with rescues and safety. rescue efforts are currently underway in order to retrieve the aircraft. the plane belongs to precision air. townsend is largest, privately owned airline, is propeller powered plains, carrying passengers between tons and in cities and to neighboring countries and a we've already informed the prime minister. also, we have received the condolences from the president of the united republic of tanzania. he has agreed to more resource is for the rescue efforts for the remaining people below. domestic flights or a crucial part of townsend is transport sector. cross country road journeys can take days for those who can afford it. air travel is much quicker and usually safer . malcolm web al jazeera
1:10 am
ah, there is less than 40 hours to go before the u. s. midterm elections and pressure is building on the democrats are public and efforts to generate fear of the economy . crime and immigration may tip the balance of power in closely 4 seats. allen fisher reports on this now from washington. the big guns are out in the final days before the mid term elections. the democrats won't need to want to generate a big turnout. the selection is not a referendum, it's a choice. it's a choice between true vastly different vision for america. traditionally, the party in the white house can expect to get hammered, and the polls are pointing that way. you're biting more approval. rating doesn't help voters when they can't vote at the top of the ticket. use elections as a referendum on the party in power. and so most of the time the president's party
1:11 am
loses seats in the house during the term election. losing the high school spell will problems, but you'll biden's agenda and legacy. since he took power inflation, his spiked prices for food and gas have risen. successes in cutting drug prices addressed in climate change. rebuilding infrastructure is not energizing voter. republicans want to end the january 6 hearings, investigate biking for as yet unspecified reasons. reform hope payments are made to us seniors and some are pushing, but a restrictive national abortion law biden can veto some of that. but not all an energized republican party could shrink his presidency as with any president that exists in a divided government, it will be much more difficult for him to get anything done. and as we know in an air of polarization, what we've experienced in the last 30 plus years is that presidents and divided government have a very difficult time passing their agenda. many republicans running this time around, believe the last presidential election was stolen and they won't commit to accept
1:12 am
the result if they lose. that leaves many expense. what is that this could undermine the whole election process if there is any sort of massive kind of error. there are challenges there are recounts their audits, so to not concede to refuse to accept the results. as long as all of those processes have been gone through is just further rhodes trust in the the system, the pain of the economy remains voters to concern hammering here to leave by not just unable to push his agenda fixer walker girl, but might damage him. so badly the idea of running again in 2024 could be ended right here. alan fisher al jazeera washington john laughing a is a former communications director at the democratic national committee and as fast as the democrat joins us now from wilmington,
1:13 am
north carolina. i will ask you about inflation in the us. it's running at 8 and a half percent. seems as though cost of living and recession fears a weighing heavily on the minds of many americans right now. how the democrats dealt with this issue, not as well as they should have married him. it is fair to say that there are big economic debates. an economist don't agree exactly what's causing this. we're seeing it globally of course. but domestically what we see is not only 40 your highs and inflation, but 70 year highs in corporate profits. and so a lot of those higher prices that money is flowing directly from consumers into corporations, bottom line, they're buying ac stock, etc. and so the democrats have been talking about that a bit, but they haven't been full throated in making that case, which the public is very sympathetic to them. republicans can basically just sit back here as they can in most mid terms. if things aren't going well, you have a democrat in the white house democrats, at least nominally,
1:14 am
and control congress and people unhappy. so republicans can sit back and say, hey, this inflation happened on that guy's watch, so you better vote for us. and that's mostly the case that they've been making, and that's despite all the other issues going on here, that is still as you say, the number one thing, especially on the minds of the voters who are not sure which side they want to vote for just yet. so why anything as a demo has not been more effective at picking up on this because we saw already deteriorating economic think as really from before the war and ukraine didn't leave the 0? yeah, yeah, for supply as he's yes, supply chain disruptions off the back of co that why they are you talking about this now? i mean, they have been talking about it. they were talking about better antitrust enforcement. a beginning a little after a year ago. they were certainly pointing to putin's invasion and saying, well that's part of the problem too. and then in the spring, we saw these bills that were going to allow the government to rein in corporate
1:15 am
price gouging. so in other words, if you charge an arm and a leg when your supply costs weren't going up, we were going to tax you a little bit extra on that surplus to try and beat back some of this price gouging . that's going straight to the bottom line. but that has not been the central theme of democrats talking here, as you heard in the set ups. there are a lot of good numbers there. a lot of good economic numbers here. believe it or not, jobs are up the, the rick coming out of the recession that we had after coated things going much better than expected on a lot of other numbers. and so what you see is democrats who've been working hard on this kind of looking for a gold star opening a pat on the back and saying, hey, there's a lot of good dues here. that doesn't go over really well with voters who are just seen ridiculously high prices at the gas pump in the grocery store. they want to know, 1st of all, that whoever they're going to put in charge going forward gets that and feels that pain. and right now the, it's hard for democrats to resist talking about all the wonderful things they've done. it, whether it's in terms of prices, were raining in the medical prices or the micro chip manufacturing
1:16 am
there. and they've gotten a lot done, but voters are not looking to hand out gold stars right now. they want to make sure somebody is going to take care of their urgent problems. what are you waiting is going to happen? republicans are enjoying a place in the polls on i think you're a bit skeptical about polling numbers and of course have to be careful how much and how much focus and important to be give them. but it, me, it's looking, i've got better prospects in, in senate races, right in pennsylvania, georgia, arizona, new hampshire. and so at about a month ago, democrats were looking like they were going to defy political gravity. and suddenly they were going to have a great year. and maybe even the house would be close, those polls shifted since then, and the republicans definitely gained or rather eroded a bunch of that advantage. but that if you, if you're tracking these things really closely, like those wasn't politics, do that plateaued a number of days ago now. and so what you're seeing is early vote numbers coming in for democrats higher than people expected. so i think the smartest people i know
1:17 am
about this, people who spend more time looking at numbers than i do, genuinely, don't know what to expect. it's what they call a jump ball at this point. oh, thank you very much. appreciate you taking time speak to us john answering or not. yeah, thank you. so of course are going to be having special coverage of this story. us mid term elections. 2100 g m t on monday right here on out 0. so do tune and for that with the al jazeera ally from london, more still to bring you after the break. i'm under simmons at nicosia airport in cyprus, abandoned, in the 1974 conflict. i'll be reporting on rising tensions between turkish cypriots and greek cypriots. ah, with how i was there were
