horse people out of ukraine, a sanctuary for journalists. it was a haven from the war, and shelter for civilian refugees were like scattered into the garden during cambodia is bloody soon washed off. flooring us up to leave and suddenly we were turning up exxon. the co rouge had taken anything of value out of the hotel, cambodia. let them know a new episode of war, hotels on all j 0 from the wells, most populated region in depth stories from across asia and the pacific diverse coaches and conflicting politics. one 0, one east on al jazeera. ah,
11:01 am
the e u considers it's options after russia makes a drastic cotton gas supplies to europe. ah, hello, i'm adrian. and again, this is al 0 live from dough, also coming up for testers in bangkok, condemned mammals, military jumped up afterward, executed for pro democracy. activists is ready, force is demolished, the homes of to palestinians will be in the occupied. west bank of schools reopen. it's for lanka, but a lack of fuel means that students are still struggling to get to class. ah, you energy ministers are meeting in brussels white bound to discuss how to deal with a major cost in russian gas. the moscow own fun gas prom is reducing supplies through
11:02 am
its nord stream, one pipeline, to europe from wednesday. it will now be just 20 percent of capacity half what it was in june. russia says the disruption is choose a maintenance issues and sanctions arriving at the meeting. the e commission of energy said the move is politically motivated. we know that there is no technical reason to do so. this is a politically motivated step and to have to be ready for that. and exactly for that reason. then, preemptive production of our gas demand is a riser. salvage. that meeting comes just hours of the ukraine's president vladimir zalinski again accused washer of inflicting what he called terror on europe by restricting gas supplies. schulman, pl. budget h o v v. boy. today we saw him do gas threat to europe despite the north stream turbine concession. russia is not planning to resume gas supply to european
11:03 am
countries, as it is obliged to do. all this is done by brought to all purpose. there is an open gas wall that russia is waiting against united europe. they do not care what will happen to the people, how they will suffer from hunger to, to the blocking ports, or from winter cold and poverty, or from occupation. these are just different forms of terror. him still let's go live to cave al 0 as john henderson is there. john, tell us more about the president's view on this restriction of gas supplies to europe, from what more europe can do. but it adrian, when it comes to the non kinetic weapons of war, kia and its allies around the world have wide reaching sanctions, which have gone far to hurt the russian economy. will. russia has energy, particularly natural gas and the lens. he says, that's what it is using the russian say this has nothing to do with a war. they had to shut down a turbine, and that is what is reducing energy. we keep in mind that they're cutting energy
11:04 am
further by half when it had already been cut to 40 percent. do the math. that means 20 percent of the energy that russia use to send to europe is going to go there. and europe gets 40 percent of its natural gas from russia. the issue is far as the landscape is concerned, is that russia is trying to drive a wedge between ukraine and european supporters as they fear for whether they'll have enough heat or cooking fuel for the neck. for the coming winter, he calls this gas blackmail and an open gas war against europe. russia insist that this again has nothing to do with the war, but it is certainly an effective weapon and trying to drive that wedge. and in terms of the fighting in the east of the country and south of the country, what's the latest job whether we're strikes early morning strikes about 5 o'clock local time against harkey in the east and against 2 ports, nikolai of, and odessa. and those were said to be massive,
11:05 am
according to people in those areas. and the case of nikolai, they were missile strikes in the case of odessa, it was apparently aircraft. but in both cases, those, those ports were hit and hit hard. and it's important that odessa was hit because this is the 2nd time that it has been struck by russian forces. since russia agreed with ukraine to allow safe passage, routes for grain that has been stored up on those ports in 3 black c ports to go to the world. and there are potential crises around the world, particularly in africa. so it's important that grain gets out not just because ukraine needs the money, but because that food needs to get to its destination. and that's another things a lengthy is, is saying that russia is using tools such as hunger and energy in order to drive a wedge between the world and ukraine. and he says, these are simply acts of terror. so striking that the russians have said that the
11:06 am
ports are legitimate targets, if they have military equipment for the united kingdom's ministry of defense says, 1st off that russia has had a hard time getting it stories straight when it 1st struck odessa on saturday. one day after this meeting, it said it didn't do so and then later acknowledge, in fact it did, but said it struck legitimate military targets, including a warship and a storage site for american made missiles. so the u. k. ministry of defense says there is no evidence that either of those things were there out there. as john had been reporting live that from ukraine's capital. keith, when he thinks john in thailand's capital bank, can protest to being held outside man mas embassy condemning the execution of 4 pro democracy activists or 4 were accused of helping a civilian resistance movement with us for the military since last year's crew. the executions have brought widespread condemnation from neighboring nations. the u. s . and the united patients, let's go last a bank account with us. tony chang is the tell us more about these demonstrations
11:07 am
outside the b embassy and wider regional reaction. well they were very jo, spontaneous or they were there in relatively large numbers. hundreds of people who went out in the mid day monsoon, rain and fate are to quite loudly protest against the executions of these 4 political prisoners. there has been no little more condemnation to day and fate. in the last half an hour. there's been a spur of the un special rapport ter, who's condemned these execution, rounded as she was joined by the malaysian foreign minister, who said these were a crime against humanity. that is perhaps, that is one of the louder comments we've seen from the region many neighboring countries to miramar remain relatively silent, but it's likely they are feeling very disappointed. they've tried to engage the
11:08 am
military mammoth to, to a certain extent chunk curb their excesses. but i think this will be seen by many as a slap in the face to those attempts of engagement. there is an assay and foreign ministers meeting next week in cambodia and this is likely to be top of the agenda. but also in the last hour we've heard from the military, within, mia mar, rare, or press conference with the military government spokesman. he didn't address the executions directly, but he did give one answer to local media who asked about the executions to which he said that sir, these people had been given every opportunity to speak in their defense in court, and they were responsible for many deaths. so they are clearly pushing forward that defensive, but he did go on to say that the military genta had nothing personal with them. and that may be a, some sort of acknowledged to the fact that even within mia mar, over the last 24 hours where protests have been met with very bloody repression by
11:09 am
the military since the military current 2021. we have still seen people going out on the streets, little flash mobs of people protesting against this, and calling for revenge. and i think that is the big concern at this stage that this escalation will just make this conflict even more bloody given all of that. will v jointer press ahead with further executions. i think that's what everyone says. so the remaining, see, there are dozens more people who've been charged, been charged and found guilty on these counter terrorism charges. i think again until this weekend, the assumption was that this would just be a way to keep them under lock and key and in jail for 3 years to come. the fact that this executions have restarted, or after 30 years, i think it is very disturbing to many people and for the fact that they are going to be clearly used against people for political reasons. i think you had to bear in
11:10 am
mind that one of those executed was an elected member of parliament, which i think has been particularly shocking to people, not just inside mir marber, but across the world. that said, a mere mas military has boot group to rebuffed all attempts at engagement, both at a political level and, and with other ethnic groups who they've been fighting within the country. so i think this just shows how much they're at loggerheads oh, at the same press conference. they talked about elections that are still they still maintain. are going to happen in august 2023. that was the promise of the gentle leader made when he conducted the q sam saying it would just be a temporary reset and democracy will be restored. but with the state of what's happening in the country, it seems very hard to see how free and fair elections could happen within the next 12 months. out 0 study ching live in bank. cox. 20 many facts is really forces of rigid the palestinian village of color. what bonnie,

olen old since the beginning of the year were talking about 12 demolitions that the scene here as a punitive measure. so usually when there is an attack by palestinians against israelis, that lives is really dead. these really forces demolish those houses. and it's seen here by human rights organization as a punitive measure against people whose only fault is that they are related to those that israel deans a suspect. the state tv exit poll out at soon as he has referendum on a new constitution suggest that 92.3 percent of those who took part voted in favor of the changes on the electoral commission says that only a course of registered voters turned up. i'll just, he was russell pseudo isn't eunice a task the internship with the company going to the pools for a controversial constitutional ref random. thousands of police national guards and counter terrorism units standing by many in tunisia,

o g sierra tunis schools have reopened a true anchor after the government said that it would provide fuel so that children could get to classes with lessons will be limited to 3 days a week. schools will shop really a month ago because of widespread shortages caused by the worst economic crisis in decades. let's go live now to colombo al jazeera michelle fernandez, is that force. so even school children are affected by this fuel shortages or particular problems. are they facing that? oh absolutely. i mean essentially for them finding a way to get to school and back home is one of the biggest issues. i traditionally lots of kids. i there take a school bus oh, i brought to school in school vans. but, but even that has been quite a challenge because many of those who vans are in queues for long periods of
11:16 am
time. the government did announced that they will make arrangements to provide fuel to these school vans and buses, through the kind of transport board depots, so they don't have to stay in those queues. but a number of school vans that we spoke to said that that system while has sort of kicked in for some there is still a way to go. now that means that a lot of the students, ah, you know, getting to and from school is quite an issue. there are quite a few when turned out, or people trying to stop taxes. either there aren't enough taxes to go around or there are exorbitant fairs. so this is a very real problem for students and is really affecting obviously their curriculum and how they can sort of go through the school system for her kids. generally coping with the crisis in sri lanka right now.
11:17 am
well obviously they've got got to make the best of an absolutely horrible situation . a bad in mind that these disruptions come on the heels of over 2 years of lockdown, related to the pandemic. so kids have, you know, started and stopped and started and stopped there. absolutely. fed up of it because there's no certainty. so the sort of system, the curriculum, the syllabus that's been covered, their walk has really suffered those having to go into public exams are also facing a delays of up to 6 months as some of them. so it's not very conducive, not just to their studies, but to their general well being as well, you know, their ability to spend time with friends, you know, have that kind of interaction with other students and all of that has really taken ahead. so in that sense, yes, they make the best of it. obviously, those varies sort of
11:18 am
a focused on their studies with continued to do so no matter what. but the general kind of student body is really kind of going from one day to the next and not feeling very great about the situation. of serious mal fernandez, reporting live here from colombo without money to people have died on at least 6 injured during riots from eastern democratic republic of congo. the crowds forced our way into the headquarters of un peacekeepers and the city of goma for 2nd day writers of damaged and looted part of the base. on monday, police dispersed with tear gas and live gunfire will demonstrate to say the un peacekeepers have not protected them from violence in the region. as catherine sawyer reports. this is what remains of a un logistics base in goma, in north kibble province. oh, thousands of congolese protested, chanted auntie un slogans demanding the peacekeeping mission, leave the country is through stones looted, office equipment,
