6:11 pm
goes off. a major embankment on the butter river has also breached affecting at least a 100 villages. i've seen a huge flood in 2004, but this time it's even bigger, more serious, to be an estimated to 1000000 people are displaced with their homes damaged or destroyed in this farming community. men and women are trying to save the harvest. they have left drying their crops along highways. foster had got them and re n g buggy here. and every name, i only managed to harvest one 3rd of my patty from underneath the water. the rest was washed away and it's been 2 weeks since there was any sun. excessive rain has devastated whatever i manage to collect. i can't try this up. it's rotting on the polled. no than me. i mean, many parts of bangladesh are prone to flooding with about
6:12 pm
a 5th of the country submerged every year. but climate scientists say are warming world is making it more unpredictable. the monsoon season hasn't even started yet. leah harding al jazeera convert, challenging, has more from it to that, and bangladesh. people are desperate for fresh water and dry food. that's what the needs and medicine. because if the stagnant water stays longer, of course, there's a waterborne disease, that's the danger. what we know. so far the water forecasts says that there could be more rain in coming days, which could make things worse because this is one of the highest rain prone area in bangladesh. it is near to cheat up on the walls, highest rainfall area and those water will onrush. come from mega lion i. so i'm in india and go through bangladesh into the bay of bengal. not this pattern of flood is been changing, obviously due to impact of climate change. people haven't seen this kind of flood
6:13 pm
what we have to see how the monsoon season affects it farther. anything that comes in ne, india will affect this part because this is the lower valley of ne india, and the water has to rush through here. so this cleared danger of more flood incoming days. now to india's sod zone, has any natal is in a gal in a santos, thanks. this is one of the thousands of homes in the state of a song that are now empty. we are in a gown district, this is one of the, this is the was affected district in the state. more than 300000 people here have been affected by these floods. many residents have fled, but there are those who are still living here. some say they're not comfortable leaving their belongings, others say they haven't found space in shelters. now, rescue operations our own people are being n lifted in some parts of a some in places like these were flood water levels are considerably high. people
6:14 pm
are being rescued by boat. it is also being given to people who don't want to leave, but people here have told us that they haven't received it. and those who have say that the food supplies haven't been enough. so they continue to live like this water here is neil deep level, at least in some places. it's even deeper. they say they don't have enough drinking water. they have very little food. they haven't made a living over the last a few days and are hoping that they get some more help from the government. now the water that you're seeing over here is coming from a real river nearby that has overflowed. it has brought with it some fish that villagers are catching to eat. now they are nervous about the fact that the real monsoon season is yet to begin. and usually that comes with heavy showers and flooding, which could make the situation over here. even worse. on the 1st u. s. military air cross carrying 32 tons of baby formula from germany. as does
6:15 pm
landed in u. s. the state of indiana. america has seen a critical shortage due to a product recall by the country's leading baby formula manufacturer as well as supply chain issues by the administration, mobilize the military and invoked the defense production act to quickly restore supplies. id. jo castro has more from washington 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 a 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 restriction bite and also invoked the
6:16 pm
defense production act, allowing the government to more quickly restore formula to store shelf and directed my team to do everything possible to ensure there's an up safe baby formula. and then as quickly reaching families needed the most, this is one of my top priorities. biden has come under increasing pressure to resolve the countries baby formula 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
6:17 pm
baby fed. she's giving her daughter more solid foods, though it's earlier than what the pediatrician had recommended. print 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. dr. oscar elaine is an expert in the ologist and public health ex, but he says the shortages could have been avoided in the u. s. there are roughly about 4 companies that account for about over 90 percent of the manufacture formula. so the issue was essentially one of those companies and manufacturers who accounted for about a 5th of the all the infant formulas in the u. s. a centrally what put one of its major plants down by virtue of having some concern around actually,
6:18 pm
but she which the regulatory agency found and made a declaration. so the shut down essentially led to it can be done by virtue of stockpiles or inventory is basically flying off the shelf and really getting us into this particular shortage which was somewhat unseen but could have very much been prevented. it's important to know that the u. s. heavily regulates it's for formula. so their 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 centrally looking at ways for the, for the regulatory agency to permit other foreign markets to supply cost me. a quick example of the u. s. requires there to be nutritional standards that
6:19 pm
are rocks from 0 to $12.00. whereas in europe, there may be other variations to that us present. joe biden has landed in japan on the 2nd leg of the asia trip after leaving south korea. and he was to enforce partnerships in asia. buying will attend a summit for the quote alliance of the us, japan, india, and australia. focus will be to count to china's influence in the region. north korea's weapons tests are also high on the agenda from so for st. louis, look, search what was achieved in south korea. it doesn't get more succinct than a mere hello. that was you as president joe biden's response when asked if he had a message for north korean leader kim jong would. but he offered a lengthy answer. when asked how the u. s. in south korea would deal with nuclear or missile threats? we are prepared for anything north korea does. we've had. he fought through. how
6:20 pm
will you fond to whatever they do? and so i am not concerned suggest just before he left for tokyo to continue his tour of asia, fightin and south korean president unit secure, visited an air force command center. julie was on it. he air and space operation center. here is a key place for the republic of korea and united states to jointly respond to the increasingly sophisticated north korean nuclear and miss south bristol. and it is a symbol of the republic of korea, an u. s. alliance challenge legal, the joint appearance, the choice of location, to showcase the country's strong security alliance. a day earlier, the 2 leaders had agreed to step up military exercises and possibly deploy more strategic weapons to the region to counter north korean threats. there was also an offer to return to negotiations. although some analysts say north korea is unlikely to respond just yet. i think they're waiting to gauge what is going on with the new
6:21 pm
president of south korea, president units like y'all. and they already know a lot about biden, from his house dealings in the u. s. senate and his vice president. so i think they're just going to sort of buy their time and see what cooperative efforts may be in the future. north korea is dealing with a severe outbreak of cove at 19 and has not responded to international office of assistance, including from the u. s. sudden, but to biden's visit was as much about security as it was about the economy. and he used it to highlight multi $1000000000.00 investments. south korean companies were making in the u. s. biden will be in japan till tuesday, where he's expected to continue with the overarching theme of his trip to asia. that the u. s. is committed to the region and although he's not said this explicitly, analysts say the u. s. once countries in the region to see it as a counterweight to china's rising influence, florence louis al jazeera sole, and robin mcbride and turco looks ahead to the agenda in japan. president joe biden
6:22 pm
comes to japan with a view to strengthen ties with his very important ally in northeast asia at a time when the united states and japan face a number of challenges on a number of different fronts. this is meant to send a message and to north korea at a time of increased missile testing and speculation about a possible and nuclear test. it also is meant to send a very clear signal to bay ging about. it's increasing assertiveness in the asia pacific region and its territorial demands. that is something which is felt very keenly here in japan, which is in dispute with china, her over various territorial claims in the east china c, a with events in ukraine. i think it also sends a very strong message to russia or the united states is leading. the international community in its condemnation are also in boycotts and sanctions. it is something which is supported by japan. and in fact,
6:23 pm
the u. s. has praised japan full rallying other countries in asia pacific to also condemn russia for its actions. all of these things will be discussed in the next a couple of days. this central part of tokyo, the streets at the moment, are quiet this sunday. but there is a very, a very strong police presence, and in the next couple of days, there will be all sorts of motor cade's back and forth to these meetings where all of these issues will be discuss, culminating in a meeting on tuesday of the so called quad security alliance of a japan united states, australia, and india. again, this loose alliance, which is meant to try to constrain china's diplomatic and military ambitions in asia pacific awesome breaking news now, and iran's elite miniature unit. the revolutionary guard says, one of its members has been assassinated in the capital terran gunman on t motorcycles, shot dead son sign on. could the ari in his car outside his home when in

a separate development, iran's state tv earlier announced that members often israeli intelligent network had been found and arrested. this is allie hudson has a covered iran extensive in joins us here. now what more do we know about what happened? i go for now. there are just few information on this story. the, i do see the information that issued a statement saying that has some say are or they are. he was assassinated by the enemies of that of the lucian, and that he was killed with the 5 bullets and one of the neighborhoods of southern toronto. now, a given the position of hassan southwell doughty as a member of the what's force and also him being operating in syria during the past . yes, it seems this assassination has nothing to do with the nuclear file, rather with iran's intervention or presence in syria. this is the main issue that
6:25 pm
we can, at least from now, somewhat eyes from this assassination. however, the direct announcement from the i r g c. and now we can see several iranian officials are tweeting and talking about this assassination as including the governments spokesperson, who said that enemies can, could kill our spot. this means that we will know more and we will, we will not be afraid of them anymore. so it's for now it's, it's more into the revolutionary rhetoric, maybe in few hours was thought knowing what's the role of has since they are for they are a what he was doing in syria. and what's the message out of this assassination? is it an israeli, for example, assassination? this is what the iranians are, are referring to and they are saying that the enemies of the revolution are behind this assassination. when in fact, yes, the reigning authorities earlier announced that they had arrested and is really
6:26 pm
sell. could these 2 events be linked in anywhere? well, there are separate because the rest of the israeli intelligence. so as for the, the see statement that happened before. now, is this part of an israeli intelligence operation in iran? now they might not be linked together, but at the end it's me, it might, it might be and it might not be that we don't have the answers to this. but at the end, it seems that within all this developments taking place in the region and the rivalry between us or israel and iran, and also iran and other parties and the region that we are. we are actually a witnessing a lot of similar accidents on a similar attacks just 2 years ago, maybe even even less than that. mos in factories either one of the leading iranian nuclear scientists was assassinated near to han and just 3 years ago. and at the
