obviously some people and others who were injured in that some way we said they were trapped in there for as much as an hour and a half. and so i did see that we saw on here the whole now in that 153 there, continued to be some seriously injured people in the hospital. so that could still ride. you can understand why survivors are likening it to a movie scene. we also understand that many people have been reported missing and their relatives are desperately wanting to hear news about them. how are the authorities dealing with the search? fortunately, by this evening, we've been told that the vast majority of the people who died happening identified . and there's only a small handful where they're still trying to contact family members. however, when we visited some of the missing persons facilities throughout the city today,
they were certainly heartbreaking of desperation by parents and other family members. friends seeking any kind of word from their loved ones. in many cases, these were community centers that are staffed by bureaucrats normally do things like register birth certificates or new apartments. and they were pressed into helping gather information and collect information. i'm missing persons and are dealing face to face with really distraught and parents and family members who are finding out the 1st time that in many cases the children had been i can't imagine how much else is being talked about today in south korea. how is the country reacting to what happened? it's certainly a bit of a state of shock. we've seen a lot of cancellation of bearing festivities. this was, of course, part of our hollowing celebration, which is not really a big holiday in south korea. but it's been kind of increasingly become part of the
goal, taking part in different parties and cost and parties, things like that over the weekend where we had major companies as well at schools, things like that. cancel a bunch of following thing, activities and other promotion. so we're expecting to see that last, at least through the period that president would have designated as a period of morning and also ex answers to the political by students. how did this happen? what was the official response, including an apparent lack of some police crowd control in that area? right? josh smith, corresponding for reuters. many, many thanks somali as president says, the death toll has risen to at least a 100 after 2 car bombs hit the capital. mogadishu, on saturday, hundreds more people were injured. the al qaeda linked, al sure bob extremist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

which include a lot of countries in the middle east, north africa, and sub saharan africa and other parts of the world. but also good news for consumers worldwide. just because that more is price. well, no doubt the repercussions of this will radiated corners around the globe. but give us an example of where people will now feel the impact the most from the collapse of this deal. well, i think in the countries that it does grain, you know, to receive grain from from ukraine that that is now tied up again, they are going to have to seek alternative suppliers. now that in the past, good news is countries have been able to find alternative sources. so we in mason, in farley and other other products. but again, is the question how much they have to pay for that exact means they have to source it for more expensive suppliers and that comes out of treasury's of those countries
. one of course is always dealing with an ever changing situation when it comes to war. time, so do you see any way the grain deal could in fact be salvage? well, you know, you're probably well aware for the last several weeks, russia has threatened to pull out of the grain deal deal. it was scheduled to expire the mid november. and the question, there was a very good question about whether or not russia would renew the agreement. i think that, you know, russia has wanted to see some changes in the agreement for one day. like they would like to see the ability to export and hydrogen ammonia. rubio doesn't words from their plants on the go. there's a long pipeline that traditionally they, they export that way. so there are things that russia would like to see changes.
but again, the broader issue of course is the word so ok, many, many things that is a joseph glover from the international food policy research institute in washington d. c. thanks michael. and a reminder of the top story we're following for you. south korea is morning at least a 153 people killed in a crash in the capitol. so an investigation is underway into the cause of this. and pete and a night life hot spot where huge crowds had gathered for halloween celebrations. most of the victims were in their teens and twenties. don't forget, you can always get d w news on the go. just download our app from google play or from the apple app store that will give you access to all the latest news from around the world as well as push notifications for any breaking news.
