welcome back. pick them out of the top stories here. this year's president joe biden has approved an additional $40000000000.00 aid package for ukraine. the latest financial packages on top of the already $13600000000.00 worth of funding. the u. s. government has pledged to the country. the conservative coalition in australia has been voted out of government for the 1st time in almost a decade. stadium voters of back the labor party instead of falls to anthony albany, see to form a new government, easier to secure a parliamentary majority. and urban says he'd be willing to meet tim junk food if a north korean leader wants to talk about security in the region, us presidents and sold his 1st trip to asia. since he took office more than 32 tons of babies formulas heading to the u. s. troy military base and germany, there's a critical shortage because of a product recall by the countries leading manufacturer as well as supply chain issues. i'll just say was,
5:17 am
how does your castro as me these us soldiers are loading, precious cargo onto a military plane in germany. 32 tons of baby formula, enough to fill one and a half 1000000 bottles for hungry children back in the us. we're getting to help american citizens who are in need of help and you can always depend on us when you need us. president joe biden announced the campaign dubbed operation fly formula this week. several flights will take formula manufactured in europe to america. after the us food and drug administration lifted some import restrictions. biden also invoked the defense production act, allowing the government to more quickly restore formula to store shelves. and i directed my team to do everything possible to ensure vision of safe baby formula and as quickly reaching families it needed the most. this one of my top priorities biden has come under increasing pressure to resolve the countries baby formula
5:18 am
shortage down about 40 percent from normal supply levels. the problem began with pandemic supply chain issues and grew worse in february when a major formula factory closed due to contamination issues. the f. d. a says abbot nutrition plant in michigan is now safe and will resume production soon. but it could be months before its product returns to shelf. it's been impossible to find him. a natural is on the last can of formula she has saved for her 5 month old daughter. like other parents. she's had to turn to in perfect solutions to keep her baby fed. she's giving her daughter more solid foods, though it's earlier than what the pediatrician had recommended. a friend very difficult for us to navigate now that were literally in our last can. the baby formula flights are just a stop gap, and it remains to be seen how quickly the which hungry little mouth, heidi joe castro al jazeera washington. joining us now from new york has dr. oscar
5:19 am
allen. he's an epidemiologist and public health expert of the good to have you back with us. so look, i mean, it seems, i'm believable that a country like the u. s. is dealing with a major shortage of baby formula briefly. how do we get here? how serious is this? do you think? well, we know there in the u. s. there roughly about 4 companies that account for about over 90 percent of the manufacture baby and infant formula. so the issue was essentially one of those companies and manufacturers who accounted for about a fit for the all the formulas in the us. essentially what put one of its major plants down by virtue of having some concern around actually patchy which the regulatory agency found it and made a declaration. so the shut down essentially led to it can be best by virtue of stockpiles or inventory is basically flying off the shelf and really getting us
5:20 am
into this particular shortage which was somewhat unseen but could have very much been prevented. yeah, and we're hearing about baby formula being flown in from germany, the defense production that's being initiated. how as a u. s. u. s. government handle this crisis, do you think? so one of the things that i think especially from an international audience is it's important to know that the u. s. heavily regulates it's for formula. so they're nutritional standards that are sometimes a bit higher in the u. s. than other particular places. so it's not as easy to say, let's use a foreign market our formula, what has been done and centrally looking at ways for the, the regulatory agency to permit other foreign markets to at least apply and meet standards. a quick example of the u. s. requires there to be nutritional standards that are crossed from 0 to $12.00, okay. are as human in europe,
5:21 am
there may be other, you know, variations to that. and that's one of the difficulties when you see having to not only go outside of the u. s. okay, also how you integrate that into our particular system. oscar just a final thoughts you. i'm in all of this puts the spotlights and how america feeds its babies. does not mean us daughtry guidelines. say babies should be breastfed for the 1st 6 month. but in practice, most babies get some kind of formula before that don't make that shoot, but we also have a lot of infants who are unable to be breast fat are teaching medical or other concerns or so yes, there is this kind of a both an impetus i'm trying to ensure that there's more breastfeeding as a way of addressing this, but also ensuring that we have a supply chain that isn't so easily impacted by domestic issues as what we've seen . dr. oscar alan. always good to get your thoughts here now to 0. thank you very much and have a talking to us. thank you, dan. out a 0 meter network continues to demand a rapid,

independent and transparent investigation into the killing of its journalist and the occupied west bank. showing of clay was shot in the head by israeli forces. while she was an assignment in janine, on the day of her funeral israeli forces storm the possession and started beating mourners, causing poor barrows to almost drop her casket. that didn't stop thousands of palestinians and marching through occupied east jerusalem to take part in her funeral and burial. members of the international community have condemned her killing and continue to cool with an investigation of barclay was without a 0 for 25 years. covering the story of these railey occupation, she was known as the voice of palestine. well, one artistic depiction of shootings, killing by israeli forces, is getting a lot of attention this cartoon by south african artist, a piro was published in the daily maverick newspaper just days after her death. it shows sharina being carried away and that israeli sniper with a smoking gun, the artist says he was motivated by the perils he saw, but in the palestinian cause and some africa's anti apartheid struggle. while the
5:23 am
artist appear, described what drove him to crate the cartoon? the parallels have been striking me for a very long time as a jewish south, african and white. so the african i will, i didn't join this, this struggling tell every goes a jewish i've ever going to join as a white african. obviously, somebody not oppressed by the system, but somebody who was against it, there was a small proportion of white people who fought against a party in various ways. and, and then, you know, during that period i became aware of how many similarities they were in various struggles around the world. ready in particular then as a jewish south african, i had to look at myself and say, i cannot support what is happening in israel when sharina berkeley was, was killed. it seemed like another targeted attack on an activist
5:24 am
or in her case, a journalist. there have been many and there were many during apartheid. i felt that those, these parallels that i see with the kind of bantustans in, in that, that on the way that, that israel is, has treated the palestinian territories. ready various times and putting walls up and preventing people from moving it feels like the older party understands the detentions, the torture, the deportations, the on for the exiles. so i think i'm afraid is probably among the countries with the highest sort of an unapologetic support for israel amongst jews. but i think even here it is shifting a bit. now, kaufman has and scientists and bangladesh. i've been working together to revive a special fabric doc, a muslim was made for royalty, but the technique for making it was all but last for more than a century. now, after painstaking search for a red cotton plant, it's being produced again,
