i came, jeffrey's has been elected as the new democratic leader of the us house of representatives . he's the 1st black person to hold the role. jeffries will take over from nancy pelosi, who served for 19 years he takes on the leadership at a critical time for the democrats who lost their house majority in the mid term elections. at 52 years old jeffries is relatively young, 6 years younger than the average age of those sitting in the us house of representatives. he has been in the house since 2013 and it's shared the house democratic caucus since 2019. jeffrey has had a significant role in the 1st impeachment of donald trump. he was selected as one of 7 house managers presenting the case against the then president. he's the 1st black person to hold a top party lead a position in the house or senate. heidi jo castro joins us live now from capitol hill. and heidi, as we've just been saying this appears to be a step towards younger, more diverse generation of democrats taking over in the house. absolutely. and that
is what this trio of new leadership that was just elected, have been telling reporters, not only was jeffrey's unanimously elected as leader of the democrats in the house, but also the number 2. and number 3, they are also relatively young. in their forties and fifties, a very different from the off to gent octogenarians who held those 3 posts of course led by none other than 82 year old nancy pelosi. this new slate of leadership is also more diverse. we have jeffries, who is the 1st african american to lead any major u. s. party in congress. and we also have pete aguilar who is a member of the hispanic house cock as he is now. the new caucus chair. so all of this is a moment that had long been anticipated. pelosi said she would be stepping down from her house speakership role in this new term after
a democrats very narrowly lost their majority in after this last midterm election. and so this new, these new leaders coming in, we'll have quite the job, cut out for them. come january 3rd when this new congress has sworn and given that they will no longer have the majority though, really be playing defense as their major role against a republican house majority in order to re experts hockey jeffries, to do the job differently to nancy pelosi, someone of course, who's loom large over us politics for so many years. right. and that is something that we will find out. certainly. pelosi had such a strong following. of course, there were some descent from progressives among democrats, but in the end, she was always able to hold all those factions together. partially because, as you said, of her longevity and, and the big shoes that she certainly left to be to be followed. jeffries may have
a different style, he has been described as and more of a, as a grassroots type leader. he has specifically said that he will try to the more inclusive of relative newcomers to the u. s. house of representative. i'm and this is something that was echoed by his a lieutenants as well. we know that he describes himself as a progressive, but he has a lot of respect and a lot of a, a he has worked with establishment democrats for many years. so because his ascension was due to a unanimous vote, it's likely that everyone will fall in line whether or not that last. so through these next 2 to motorists years, while democrats are again in the minority in the house, that remains to be seen. hardy many thanks, honey. j cross through the old capitol hill. at least 15 people have been killed in a bombing in northern afghanistan. lib happen to the religious school. if i bach

ation and security aspect brought us away from and out. the joblessness and other problems take some as on one exemptions on telephone is government, they have been increasing the difficulties for taliban and so many on mother says, which are the main areas of recruitment and stronghold of caliber leadership on prevention level. it should be affiliated with the governor's office or the police force tyler by now that is to go into attacking such kind of centers. again, it shows that the taliban, i've been to lynch on this important area of improvement, which is bringing security to talk. god has done after the fall of carbon, japanese and american pharmaceutical companies have published results of a trial which show a new drug can slow down cognitive decline in alzheimer's patients. alzheimer's disease international says on average one person develops dementia every 3 seconds
. outside as is the most common cause of dementia, the number of people with dementia is expected to double every 20 years with much of the increase in developing countries. dementia cost globally are more than a trillion dollars about a 3rd of the u. case annual g d p. those costs include direct medical care, social care, and unpaid care, how we force it as more. for over 30 years, scientists have tried and failed to design a drug that tackles the cause, not the symptoms of alzheimer's disease. now comes the 1st evidence of real success and antibody infusion that attacks a specific protein in the brain. slowing the development of early stage alzheimer's by around a quarter professor john hardy. first develop the theory of this. we said that this approach might work 30 years ago and you know, if you'd asked me 30 years ago how long it would take, i'd say 5 to 10 years. so for me it's, it seems definitely momentous. i think for patience, it's
a real step forward, a real step forward, and it's going to take a couple of years to get it into the system. it's patience like john teeling in the early stages of the disease who stand to benefit the most. john says he felt the ground open up when he was diagnosed. he'd embrace anything that gives him more time with his wife and family. you put it at any mind, you know where you go or end up life. and you know, there's nothing you can do about it, but you can't worry about it because there's nothing you can do. someone be accepting of it. the new drug, la cannon, mad inhibits the build up in the brain of a protein called peter amyloid visible is so called plaques. in the brains of alzheimer's patients. nearly $1800.00 patients around the world took part in a study which showed a 27 percent slow down in the deterioration of their cognitive skills over 18 months. but if approved, the treatment will be laborious and costly. put minister through bud infusions
twice a month. and will also require major investment in screening for the disease to catch it sufficiently early. and at the moment we did up through kansas trance, regal spinal flit, testing for a from a lumber puncher. and that is, ah, we need to broaden access to ways in which we can have access to those kind of tasks. we also want to see a new techniques that are quicker and faster and potentially cheaper. for example, blood test, if 30000000 people around the world suffer without highness in itself, just one form of dementia. much difficult and costly work remains before treatments . let alone cures a widely available. but this is a hugely significant 1st step. harry faucet, al jazeera london, ah, it wednesday is world cup action, australia beat denmark, one know then a through to the next round. they will now go on to face the winner of group. see

be every bit is influential. and to nicea they're out of the competition despite beating the reigning champions. france, why? because re, school chinese is 1st call a catch 2022. that was enough for one. they'll win, but not enough to put them into the last 60 and the game between argentina and poland is about 10 minutes in the school is nell or france or at stadium 974 is the teams played out in a match that will decide who progresses to the next round, poland is on 4 points. argentina on 3 stadium nice have been for is a temporary and you made some recycled. shipping containers also underway, the game between mexico and saudi arabia at loose sales stadium. that's also neil all so far. they will also decide who will proceed from the group. sarah hyatt was outside the stadium before the match. now france repetitions. a mexican font is about to attend the game. brian, what do you know about the performance?

the book, not just from saudis, but pretty much from all of the region. and why is that? do you think? i think because that's how the national team showed the world that we can do better than what we thought about us. and we've led me to, well, i guess one of the tournament favorites to when we played a shock for people. yeah, of course it is. my personal opinion, i think i was going to make history today, and we will over mexico to neil that there were next. yeah, of course. well, as you can see, i mean the law spans are very much excited towards this, but there is trepidation with the make the con mexican fans rather specifically the saudi things that even if they do this by that they've got this ball, it's fairly strong team at the moment and this walcott has been increasingly thank you very much, is raising the surprising with surprising resolve this me from the,
