9:00 am
ah ah ah, this is d w. news live from berlin, the u. s. declared the death of the alleged mastermind, the 911 attacks in my direction. united states successfully concluded nurse turned in kabul, afghanistan, and killed the rear of the lawn. our president joe biden says,
9:01 am
a drawn strike in the afghan capital kill b reclusive terrorist command. also coming up tensions over a possible stop. over in taiwan, taiwan, government sources say us house big a. nancy pelosi will visit the island drink to asia trip. china has britain 8 military response. whitehouse is badging is overreacting. and today humanity is just one misunderstanding when miscalculation away from nuclear, in the late stack warning from the head of the united nations. it talks on preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. ah m. anthony, how welcome to the program. the united states says that is killed the leader of al qaeda. i man al. so why hittie in a drone struck in afghanistan, he was one of the founders of the terrorist group and been in hiding for more than
9:02 am
a decade as to why had he allegedly carried out a key role in planning the $911.00 attacks alongside some of the lot is dead, comes ag after the us forces pulled out of afghanistan, u. s. as the taliban had been sheltering. also why he, nina, i'm president joe biden announced also why he's death saying he was killed in the drone strike on a house in the afghan capital cobble on saturday. or jose community located is our here. e. earlier this year had moved to downtown couple to reunite with members of his immediate family. after carefully considering a clear and convincing evidence of his location, i authorized a precision strike that would remove him from the battlefield once and for all. this mission was carefully plan, rigorously minimize the risk of harm rather civilians. and one week ago, to read advise, the conditions were optimal. i gave the final approval to go get it. and the
9:03 am
mission was a success. none of his family members were hurt and there were no civilian casualties. now the taliban has responded by condemning the attack saying it violated an agreement with the us of its withdrawal from the country. there i spoke to middle east security expert roger shanahan, who served with the australian military in afghanistan. i asked if he was surprised that al z a y haiti was tracked to such a conspicuous place. certainly i think this thing that exercising most people's minds, most people would have assumed that when he was killed, it would have been somewhere along the afghan pakistan border in a remote part of either of those 2 countries. but the fact that it was found in the center of kabul, i is puzzling to cite laced and obviously write a series questions about the relationship between the taliban and al qaeda. the
9:04 am
next question being given that al z a y haiti was located under their noses. is it possible the taliban did not know he was living in cobble? well, there's probably more information to come out about that, but does. but the publicly available information is that it appears there is some relationship between the owner of the house or who was fostering at zwang freeze at present, stair and at the interior ministry in the taliban. so the more of these links to put together, the harder it's got a bay for the taliban decide than you nothing about is. what does it tell us, roger about the role of el al qaeda operating in afghanistan today? well, i suppose is 2 elements to it. is the is let me state element which am i have been targeted by, by the taliban oversee by the united states. but there is the relationship between
9:05 am
al qaeda ah, and the taliban neff canister, which is obviously targeted by the west. but out qaeda? oh sorry taliban a bit more circumspect. i regarding their relationship with them in better external partners, all parties abilities to target them. so that's going to be one of the fascinating things we're probably going to find out hopefully of the next weeks and months yet . when did he in a cobble under what is agreement? was he in there? what was he doing there besides being with his family? who else was seeing him who is sponsoring him while he was there? all right. questions that rise. yeah. that we want some answers to before we can start to join the dots in the taliban al qaeda relationship in afghanistan. just in twins in terms of operationally speaking. how is this operation different from side, the bin laden operation? well, this was a remote kinetic attack. it just used to help i'm missiles from what we,
9:06 am
i understand and those particular types of missiles are non explosive. again, as far as weight being told that have blades that shoot out of them. and so minimizes collateral damage and is really just there to, to kill the individual. and that's what appears to have happened in this instance in the summer, been loudon assault. there were troops on the ground. there were several helicopters that went in to pakistani at pakistan. it is by 2 about a bet, so i'm quite different the 2 of them but by the same you know, in a particularly precise information about one of if not the highest priority terrorist target to execute those operations are just shanahan at the low institute and see the many thanks. my pleasure. and media in taiwan, our reporting,
9:07 am
the u. s. house began nancy pelosi will visit the self governing island as part of her asia to a policy is not commented on the possible trip, but their speculation. she could stop over on tuesday night, johnny's government says it would view a visit why pelosi has a provocation and wanted military could take strong counter measures. in response, john abused one as its own territory, whitehouse and racial said there was no need for china to turn the situation into a crisis. or let's bring in the w correspondence accurately in taipei, mary suddenly a lot riding on the 2nd re how sure are we that nancy pelosi will be coming to taught by were according to civil associate from taiwan and his government as worth local media. nancy pelosi may arrive in taiwan in few hours. the arrival time is likely to be $1020.00 p. m local time and is expected to meet
9:08 am
taiwan president. how you weren't? well this morning, a report shows that server chinese war plains flew close to the median, lie dividing the tower trade. besides thailand, defense ministry has reinforced combat alertness label from tuesday to thursday, los, or indicate the high possibility of hello this trip to taiwan. but again, this is nadia come from publicly by any officials here in k one or in the us. now everyone is watching closely. pelosi will make a stop over here. they're watching close the up people in taiwan worried zachary about beijing's reaction. how closely are they listening to what chinese officials a saying on that? were you could talk to people on the street. no one is actually concerned about a threat or reaction from b gin. this is because taiwanese people are very used to china's threats for many years, hence they don't take the warning from china really seriously. however,
9:09 am
how we learnt this morning is late. china has placed a band and hundreds of products imported from taiwan. and this will cause heavy loads. this for some towing. these companies, local media has connected le band to pillows this trip to tie one. zachary, stay with me. i want to get some context here. as china issues a clear warning of a policy not to travel to taiwan tension between the us and china, of the island have been building for some time with each side, blaming the other over the escalation. let's have a look at how this unfolded. he didn't jeans, don't play with fire. ok, that was chinese president. she jan ping's message to was u. s. counterpart joe biden. in the most recent talks, china claims the u. s. is dangerously close to crossing a line on taiwan with its messages of support for the islands. independence in may . biden broke with years of u. s. policy by promising military support. if china tried to invade are you
9:10 am
willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that, yes, you are. that's a commitment we made. the u. s. says china is the one disrupting the status quo. over the past year, she gen ping has provoked taiwan with incursions into its air space and calls for an end to taiwanese self rule. fool on the historical mission of the reunification of the motherland must be and will surely be realised. negotiate a jing, seize the island as a chinese territory temporarily occupied by the political airs of those who lost the chinese civil war. 949. since then, taiwan has governed itself, running regular military and civilian drills to prepare for a possible chinese invasion. to pass that china has laid out off is neither a free and democratic way of life to taiwan. no sovereignty for 23000000 people.
9:11 am
many in the west see it as a fight between democracy and authoritarianism. but that's not the only reason why the u. s. is involved. taiwan is integral to u. s. strategy to check china's power in the pacific. the taiwan strait is one of the most important shipping lanes and global trade. and the majority of the world's advanced semiconductors, used in everything from smartphones to cars. joke are made on the island, tries to relocate production line. if china successfully imposes its rule on taiwan . that would be a big blow to the u. s. and a victory for she didn't pass to y'all. but he and biden, i both have a lot to lose. should they know a full blown war could be the worst case scenario for both their country swan could meet on hope that i got back with the w correspondence act really in taipei. so what's at stake here for tie one, zachary, could they benefit really from this kind of visit, keeping in mind that leading members of the body administration have made it clear
9:12 am
. this is just a private trip exactly. well, but you have to note that pelosi is actually taken in lie to you as president. see if she really be this tie was she will be the highest ranking us politician to visit highway in 25 years. this will be a very significant for tie 150, always 6 support from other countries. as we know, taiwan is isolated from the global society and the constellations between the u. s . anti one would of course, be very significant for taiwan. and this is how thick navy can distribute. zachary lee in taipei. thanks so much. my pleasure. all right, tom, now to take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world authorities in california. i. 2 bodies were found after a blaze that broke out on friday, so called mckinney wildfire has forced at least 2000 people to evacuate. vice have
9:13 am
also broken out in the western state of oregon and montana. police in bolivia have clashed with coca farmers protesting over the establishment of a market in the capital to pass countries leading growers association claims the new market is illegal is run by a rival group. doctors in brazil have successfully separated twins, co joined at the head. the surgery took more than 20 hours to complete and has been called the most complex of its kind. the 3 year old twins were born with a fused brain and will spend at least 6 months in hospital rehabilitating. now the 1st grand shipments from ukraine have restarted under un, broke a deal to end russia's blockade. the 1st ship left and disappeared on monday bound for lebanon. keep says, there are 16 more vessels waiting to depart. if all goes to plan shipments, had been halted since the start of rushes months long war
9:14 am
now the ship is traveling across the black sea to stamp from assemble to turkey, where it will be inspected under the terms of a u. n. deal some 5000 nautical miles. it's expected to arrive after that journey light on tuesday, or early on wednesday. now from there, it will continue on to lebanon, where the ship's successful departure ukrainian president vladimir lensky has warned. that it is still too early to celebrate. half a more, let's bring in the w as begin a sugar in key. figured the progress of the ship is being followed very, very closely. is it all going to plan so far? yes, the vessel is on its way to istanbul. the load, it was $26000.00 tons of mays, and up to now everything is gone as planned. yesterday morning,
9:15 am
the ship left the port of odessa, which is heavily mines through a sort of safe corridor corridor. ukraine had established by the mining parts of the port and who it was guided by pilot ships. and now it's on its way to istanbul . there it will be inspected again by a group of inspectors from turkey, russia, and began to make sure that it's only really those m $26000.00 tons of mails on board and nothing else. and then if, if that has happened, the ship can continue its journey to lebanon, and then from there, the grain can be distributed to the world markets. so if this, this works, how optimistic are authorities in ukraine that they can return to something like a normal schedule of deliveries. we could sense here in keith,
9:16 am
a huge relief and that this 1st shipment went that well, but you quoted presidents the landscape is 90 address. he said, don't be overly optimistic because obviously ukraine doesn't trust the russian security guarantees, especially as russia had attacked the address at port only hours after the great deal was signed. and it's important to say that the even more challenging part of the deal is still to come because the big question is, will the ship owners be really ready to send their ships into a heavily mine harbor in a war zone? and will they get affordable insurance? because we have heard a lot of comments by the insurance industry. they said, yeah, this the, the deal still have to worked out. we need more procedures to really assure that the ships can go there safely and pick up the grades for the work markets. briefly we've heard
9:17 am
a lot over the past 2 weeks about the counter offensive back on land fujita. are there any signs of ukrainian troops gaining territory or momentum? yes, absolutely. we, we have seen ukraine as scaling up at these attacks. we have seen a lot of attacks on as supply lines of russia by heating far behind the front lines, ammunition depots, and critical infrastructure. now it seems as if the ukrainian army is sort of closing in to southern how son and governor told us that they, they have a retake at $46.00 settlements. we cannot confirm nor deny this, but this is what they say. but at the same time, russia is deploying a lot of forces from the east and ukraine from, than done it's reason to the, to the cells. so they're very much willing to defend the territory they, they took their so i think we will see
9:18 am
a lot of fierce fighting over the next days in that region. w. begin a sugar include many thanks. now european union countries are attempting to reduce their use of russian gas in response to the invasion of ukraine, germany as restarted an old coal fired power plant to save its gas reserves. and in the netherlands, this debate on whether to reverse a decision to shut down a major gas field. the grown again gesture field is the biggest of its kind in europe. the doubly reporter sonya family cup travelled to grogan where decades of extraction had caused earthquakes. she found locals, they are unhappy about suggestions. the gas should keep pumping. john whittaker's, damaged house is being strengthened to withstand future earthquakes. it's a complex operation on dish and hail this part of the building is already repaired, read. another section had to be completely torn down and has been reuben,
9:19 am
the house was damaged in the aftermath of a strong earthquake. government will urine groningen where gas extraction has triggered tremors for decades under her daughter shortly. it was horrible where everything was moving in, or there was a huge noise and a lot of the house and there was one loud bang. i mile went on to your yard. she sank into a huge loss. it was a beautiful house. we were happy in it. we run down mitchell green. the earthquakes of lead to more than a 160000 damages claims to date. which prompted the dutch government to scale by gas production. and take a decision to close down the gas field by next year. but the russian invasion of ukraine and slashing of gas close to europe has torn those plans into question. the dutch government is now considering tapping the fields, still ample reserves in case of
9:20 am
a gas emergency in winter. marquee on mulder is an energy expert at the university of drone. again, he believes it's possible to temporally res output at the groaning and field to meet a part of europe's gas meets and get the residents on board as well. as the owner usa small part of got these revenues to compensate, all habitants are written of groningen at the expense a bit higher risk for earthquakes because they still exist. so this will be the best. the solution for, for every one has a more casual markets, more f use really? yeah, quicker appropriate compensation for all the inhabitants. and more cas apply to the european gas markets. i've got correction hall, but there's also correction ceiling. but residents and groaning and don't trust those promises. marianna tori has been petitioning authorities for 6 years to recognize and be for the damage she says was caused by gas extraction and pull down
9:21 am
the house if needed. she still waiting for a decision. the damage, meanwhile, is coined them. this is the type of damage that, that we see a lot. and it's the one that it's the show them that really scares because people are afraid with an next earthquake. that the roof will come down and well, the beams may land on you. the does state and the gas heat operator have paid out over a $1000000000.00 so far to affected residents for rebuilding and strengthening homes . none of the residents are looking forward to continuing damage to the homes, but the dutch government may be out of other options. if the gas crisis takes a turn for the worse in the winter. from brussels, i am now joined by d. w correspondent, barbara fazel, barbara, good to say it. i say that desperate times call for desperate measures. knowing what we know about the thread of earthquakes are these desperate measures fairly. because of course, there has been
9:22 am
a long running controversy about this dutch field and its exploitation, and this is going back decades really. so it's not an easy option for the dutch government bought as desperate times. but it also contains a warning. of course we're on the european countries. there is one since in germany debate, whether it should start fracking, germany has, as opposed to the netherlands, no sort of easily to be exploited gas fields. they, they're lying fairly deep and they're contained in rock. so it would need to have to have to be fracking. and the, the dutch example shows that there is no energy in europe. that doesn't come at a cost, not only financially, but also human cost, a political cost. and that is something that governments, at the moment in europe are, have to be weighing up. is it worth it? can we contain the fall out the political fall out? the protests, for instance, often habitants in certain regions. and so this is the situation, and it is,
9:23 am
of course, in the example of what really european countries have to deal with at the, at the moment. you know, this one solution and extreme solution, some would say to the energy crisis. but there's europe, have any other options you have has the option and that at the moment is really the biggest slogan a within the european union is say, you have to save gauss. i mean, they just agreed to say 15 percent and countries are doing all sorts of things. in italy, for instance, the government has decreed that air conditioning has to sort of be set up to 28 degrees. so just cool offices and, and apartments it bit but met don't make it really cool. like 21. and you feel like you're in spring in spain, the french friday, the, the spanish prime minister pedro such as he and said on t v, everybody take off their tie in order not to get so hot, you know, just to clothing to the higher temperatures and save energy,
9:24 am
we can't waste all this energy for air conditioning is similar in france. there was a decree that the shops would have to sort of close their doors and not waste energy anymore. so there are a lot of small measures and every one hopes that these 15 percent can be reached would be a big step. our proposal in brussels, thank you. now the head of the united nations has warned that the world is now closer to nuclear annihilation than at any other time since the cold war. secretary general antonia who terrorist made the stock comment. so the un conference i aimed at reducing the spirit of nuclear weapons. the non proliferation meeting was postponed for 2 years because of the pandemic. the stakes are high as the month long conference gets under way at the united nations headquarters in new york. russia put its nuclear forces on alert after it invaded ukraine. the u ends chief set, the threat posed by nuclear weapons today hasn't been seen since the cold war. and
9:25 am
he issued this morning. we have been extraordinary, lucky so far, but luck is not the strategy, nor is it. the shields from geopolitical tensions barling over into nuclear, conflicts to with a humanity is just one misunderstanding. one miscalculation away from nuclear, at any lation. we need the treaty of non proliferation of nuclear weapons as much as ever. germany's foreign minister accused russia of reckless rhetoric and reminded signatories of their obligations to the non proliferation treaty or n p t. we are here to defend the rules based international order. the entity is not just the piece of paper. it embodies some of the most fundamental commitments of human kind to prevent the
9:26 am
spread of nuclear weapons to ensure nuclear weapons. i never used again and to work towards our common goal of a word free of nuclear weapons. in a letter to delegates, moscow said nuclear war should never be unleashed, and there could be no winners. the treaty is the cornerstone of global efforts to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. over the following weeks, participants will discuss a consensus on future steps. japan is spearheading talks as the world's 1st and only country to be hit with atomic bombs. the push for agreement comes days ahead of the 77th anniversary of those nuclear attacks. oh, here's a quick reminder at the top story we're following for you, this l. u. s. president joe biden says the leader of al qaeda has been killed in an
