Stock markets around the world have declined as news of a new Covid-19 variant emerged. With the UK and others banning flights from the affected southern African countries, travel and tourism shares have fallen most sharply, and we assess the potential impact on the sector with Helen Tustin, founder of Wellbeing Travel. Also in the programme, on the shopping festival Black Friday, we get a sense of how toymakers are affected by global supply chain problems from Steve Finch, founding owner of toy company Bopster. And we get wider context from Andy Mulcahy, head of strategy at the UK e-commerce association IMRG. As the World Chess Championship gets under way in Dubai, we hear about the financial side of the game from Ilya Merenzon, chief executive of World Chess. Plus, amid concern that the conflict in Ethiopia could be about to escalate, we examine how the country's economy has been affected by the ongoing dispute between Tigray state in the north and the national government. Samuel Getachew is a business journalist in Addis Ababa, and tells us how before the fighting began, Ethiopia had become something of an economic miracle. The US is threatening to kick the country out of the AGOA preferential trade programme, and Rohit Nair, vice-president of garment maker Epic Apparel explains such a step could mean the closure of his business. And we also get the perspective of Zemedeneh Negatu, global chairman of the Fairfax Africa Fund, which invests in and owns companies across Africa. Today's edition is presented by Fergus Nicoll, and produced by Joshua Thorpe and Faarea Masud.

Even the most seasoned observers have been stunned by Ethiopia's recent twists and turns. The first shock came in 2018, when the country saw a peaceful transfer of power to a coalition led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. For some, this promised a turning point for a country that had long struggled to open its political space and find a workable political model that balanced its strong state with regional demands for ethnic autonomy. This optimism did not last. Ethiopia has since been plunged into a deadly civil war that threatens the very integrity of the state. Only weeks ago, Tigray forces captured towns in the direction of Addis Ababa, leading some foreigners to evacuate the capital.This week, Alan is joined by Ethiopia expert Christopher Clapham, an author on the Horn of Africa and retired professor at the University of Cambridge, to take a deep dive into the country's complex history. They discuss the legacy of Ethiopia's imperial past, Ethiopia's exceptional resistance to European colonial rule, the lingering effects of the Derg's violent revolution, and the contradictions inside former Prime Minister Meles Zenawi's vision for ethnic federalism. They also talk about the breakdown of the Ethiopian regime after Meles's death, the “miracle” of Abiy's ascent, the slide into civil war and the possible scenarios for Ethiopia's political future as the military tide turns against the government.You can find more of Crisis Group's work on our Ethiopia page.

When Abiy Ahmed, Ethiopia's prime minister, launched an attack on the restive region of Tigray in his country's north last November, he promised it would be a swift victory for his forces. The goal, Abiy said, was to punish leaders of the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF) for an attack on a federal military installation. A year later, the Prime Minister's confidence in his troops looks misplaced. The conflict is still raging and there is no end in sight.

Kate Adie presents reporters' despatches from Ethiopia, the Cop26 climate summit, Switzerland, Georgia and Brazil. The conflict in Ethiopia has left the country's northern Tigray region largely cut off, with millions facing starvation. Among the many combatants now on manoeuvres are the “Oromo Liberation Army” – the Oromo being a people who live mostly in the centre and south of the country. Catherine Byaruhanga was given a rare invitation to meet them. Ethiopia is one of the countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change - the subject of the Cop26 summit in Glasgow. Among those attending were the BBC's David Shukman, a veteran of ten previous Cops, and someone who has watched at close hand the long battle to see the dangers of climate change. The ski industry is already preparing for warmer temperatures, with predictions that the snow at many resorts will regularly melt, or never form in the first place. So what can these resorts do to stay in business? Simon Mills reports from Switzerland. After former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was smuggled back into the country, and then chucked in prison, he went on a hunger strike leading to protests in the street. What exactly is happening is still unclear, but then Rayhan Demytrie says that when it comes to Saakashvili, it has always been hard to separate myth from reality. The pandemic meant that Sao Paulo's bars and restaurants were forced to shut – and yet there was one kind of food outlet which was permitted to say open, deemed an essential part of Brazilian life. They are called lanchonetes, local eateries with a tradition going back more than a hundred years. Andrew Downie explains why he is a lanchonete fan.

Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Jessica Steinberg on today's podcast. On today's show, we open with a look at the intensifying war in Ethiopia and its impact on Israel. After reports that Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed angrily complained in a phone call with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that some of those airlifted to Israel were officers involved in war crimes, Israel promised to send back those found to have committed such crimes. We look at how Israel got into the mess, and how it hopes to get out of it. We assess the impact of claims that cellphones belonging to at least six Palestinian rights activists were hacked using the contentious Israeli cyber-surveillance firm NSO Group's Pegasus software, and the international criticism of Israel after the government outlawed six Palestinian rights groups, accusing them of acting as fronts for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group. We analyze the alleged Iranian-linked drone attack on the Iraqi prime minister and ask how destabilization in the country is seen by Israel. And finally, we hear an update on the recent strikes in Syria attributed to Israel. Discussed articles include: Israel said to promise to return Ethiopian immigrants who committed war crimes Ethiopian PM said to complain 4 war criminals among those airlifted to Israel Report: Palestinian activists' phones hacked with controversial NSO Group tech Europeans on Security Council criticize Israeli blacklisting of Palestinian NGOs Iran-backed militia launched drone attack targeting Iraq's PM Drone strikes Iran-backed militias in eastern Syria – report ‘Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Mittwoch – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Belarus: Maas droht Schleusern mit Strafmaßnahmen Der geschäftsführende deutsche Außenminister Heiko Maas ist für Sanktionen gegen alle, die sich an der Schleusung von Flüchtlingen nach Belarus beteiligen. Niemand dürfe sich ungestraft an menschenverachtenden Aktivitäten beteiligen, sagte er mit Blick auf Machthaber Alexander Lukaschenko. Dies gelte für Herkunfts- und Transitstaaten, aber auch für Fluglinien, die den Transport von Menschen nach Belarus ermöglichten. Die EU sei bereit, "klare Konsequenzen zu ziehen". Die EU wirft Lukaschenko vor, gezielt Migranten ins Land zu holen, um sie dann an die Grenze zum EU-Land Polen zu bringen. UN fordern von Äthiopien Freilassung von inhaftierten Beschäftigten Die Vereinten Nationen haben von Äthiopien die sofortige Freilassung von festgesetzten einheimischen UN-Beschäftigten verlangt. In der Hauptstadt Addis Abeba seien ohne Nennung von Gründen 22 lokale Beschäftigte verschiedener UN-Agenturen inhaftiert worden, sagte ein UN-Sprecher in New York. Sechs von ihnen seien inzwischen freigelassen worden, aber 16 seien noch immer in Gewahrsam. Die Festnahmen erfolgten offenbar im Zusammenhang mit dem Vorgehen von Sicherheitskräften in Addis Abeba gegen Angehörige der Volksgruppe der Tigray. Macron kündigt Bau neuer Atomkraftwerke an Frankreichs Präsident Emmanuel Macron hat den Bau einer neuen Generation von Atomkraftwerken angekündigt. In einer Fernsehansprache begründete Macron dies unter anderem mit dem Kampf gegen den Klimawandel und der Sorge um eine zuverlässige Energieversorgung. Zugleich solle aber auch die Entwicklung erneuerbarer Energien fortgesetzt werden. Frankreich gehört zu den Staaten, die seit langem auf Atomenergie setzen und auch dabei bleiben wollen. Derzeit sind dort 56 Reaktoren in Betrieb. Bereits im Oktober hatte Macron Investitionen in Höhe von einer Milliarde Euro in die Atomkraft angekündigt. Frankreichs Senioren bekommen Geimpft-Status nur noch mit Booster-Impfung Wegen steigender Corona-Zahlen erhöht der französische Präsident Emmanuel Macron den Druck beim Impfen. Menschen über 65 Jahren gelten ab Mitte Dezember nur noch als geimpft, wenn sie eine Booster-Impfung nachweisen können. Sechs Monate nach der Impfung verringere sich die Immunität und das Risiko einer schweren Corona-Erkrankung steige, sagte Macron in einer Ansprache an die Nation. Die Lösung sei eine weitere Impfdosis. Die Booster-Impfung solle demnächst für alle über 50 zugänglich sein. Zudem sollen Kontrollen des Gesundheitspasses in Gaststätten, Zügen und Kulturzentren verschärft werden. Neue Gedenkmauer für Österreichs Holocaust-Opfer in Wien In Wien ist eine neue Gedenkstätte zur Erinnerung an die mehr als 64.400 österreichischen Jüdinnen und Juden eingeweiht worden, die während der NS-Diktatur ermordet wurden. Ihre Namen sind auf 160 Granittafeln eingemeißelt und stehen als ovale "Namens-Mauer" in einem Park im Zentrum der Hauptstadt. Eine Gedenktafel erinnert zudem an andere Opfer des Nazi-Regimes. Bundeskanzler Alexander Schallenberg erinnerte an den schwierigen Umgang des Landes mit seiner Rolle in der NS-Ära. Die Menschen in Österreich hätten zu lange weggeschaut, bis sie sich ihrer Rolle als Täter bewusst geworden seien. Mehrere Verletzte nach Hauseinsturz in der Türkei Beim Einsturz eines zweistöckigen Gebäudes im Osten der Türkei sind mindestens elf Menschen verletzt worden. 13 Menschen seien von Rettungskräften aus den Trümmern des Hauses in der Stadt Malatya befreit worden, acht weitere hätten sich selbst in Sicherheit bringen können, sagte der stellvertretende türkische Innenminister Ismail Catakli. Nach Angaben der Regionalbehörden wurde am Abend niemand mehr vermisst. Einsatzkräfte setzten ihre Such- und Rettungsaktion dennoch fort. Zunächst war von mindestens zehn Vermissten die Rede gewesen. Ursache des Einsturzes war demnach eine beschädigte Wand. Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Malala hat geheiratet Die pakistanische Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Malala Yousafzai hat geheiratet. Das teilte die 24-Jährige per Twitter mit. Das Paar habe eine kleine traditionelle islamische Hochzeitszeremonie mit seinen Familien zuhause im englischen Birmingham abgehalten, so Yousafzai weiter. Malala Yousafzai erhielt 2014 für ihren Einsatz für das Recht aller Kinder auf Bildung als bislang jüngste Preisträgerin überhaupt den Friedensnobelpreis. Im Oktober 2012 hatte sie ein Attentat überlebt, nachdem Taliban-Kämpfer im Norden Pakistans ihren Schulbus gestoppt hatten.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.UN-Sicherheitsrat besorgt über Kämpfe in Äthiopien Der Sicherheitsrat der Vereinten Nationen hat ein Ende der Gewalt im Krisenland Äthiopien gefordert. In einer gemeinsamen Erklärung verlangte das mächtigste UN-Gremium von den dortigen Konfliktparteien, einen dauerhaften Waffenstillstand auszuhandeln. Der bereits seit einem Jahr andauernde Konflikt zwischen der Regierung und der Rebellengruppe "Volksbefreiungsfront von Tigray" (TPLF) hatte sich in den vergangenen Tagen deutlich verschärft. Die USA und andere Staaten riefen ihre Bürger in Äthiopien auf, das nordost-afrikanische Land so bald wie möglich zu verlassen. Repräsentantenhaus billigt Bidens Infrastrukturpaket Nach monatelangem Ringen hat der US-Kongress eines der innenpolitischen Kernvorhaben von Präsident Joe Biden beschlossen. Einige Wochen nach dem Senat verabschiedete auch das Repräsentantenhaus ein großes Investitionsprogramm, mit dem die Infrastruktur der Vereinigten Staaten modernisiert werden soll. Insgesamt hat das Paket einen Umfang von mehr als einer Billion US-Dollar. Es wurde schließlich mit einer komfortablen Mehrheit verabschiedet: Mehr als ein Dutzend Republikaner schlossen sich Bidens Demokraten bei der Unterstützung des Gesetzes an. Österreich verschärft Corona-Schutzmaßnahmen Angesichts zuletzt stark gestiegener Corona-Infektionszahlen hat Österreich massive Einschränkungen für Ungeimpfte beschlossen. Von Montag an erhalten nur noch Geimpfte und Genesene Zutritt zu Restaurants, Cafés, Hotels, Freizeiteinrichtungen oder körpernahen Dienstleistern, wie Bundeskanzler Alexander Schallenberg mitteilte. Auch bei Veranstaltungen mit mehr als 25 Menschen gilt in Österreich künftig die sogenannte "2G"-Regel. Diese solle einen "starken Anreiz" schaffen, sich impfen zu lassen, erläuterte der österreichische Regierungschef in Wien. Airport von Mallorca vorübergehend gesperrt Ein ungewöhnlicher Zwischenfall hat den Flughafen von Palma de Mallorca für drei Stunden lahmgelegt. Eine Maschine einer marokkanischen Fluggesellschaft legte auf dem Weg von Casablanca nach Istanbul wegen eines medizinischen Notfalls eine unplanmäßige Zwischenlandung ein.

She spoke to UN News's Daniel Johnson.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Mittwoch – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Republikaner Youngkin gewinnt Gouverneurswahl in Virginia Der Republikaner Glenn Youngkin hat laut Hochrechnungen der US-Fernsehsender die Gouverneurswahl im US-Bundesstaat Virginia gewonnen. Youngkin schlug demnach bei der Wahl am Dienstag mit 2,7 Prozentpunkten Vorsprung knapp seinen Rivalen Terry McAuliffe von der Demokratischen Partei. Die Gouverneurswahl galt als Stimmungstest für US-Präsident Joe Biden und seine Demokraten. Die Niederlage McAuliffes im bislang demokratisch regierten Virginia ist eine schwere Schlappe für die Demokraten. Der 64-jährige McAuliffe hatte in Umfragen lange klar vor Youngkin gelegen, zuletzt hatte Youngkin aufgeholt. USA starten Corona-Impfungen für 5-11-Jährige In den USA starten die Corona-Impfungen für Kinder im Alter zwischen fünf und elf Jahren: Nachdem die Gesundheitsbehörde CDC eine Impfempfehlung für diese Altersgruppe mit dem Vakzin von Biontech/Pfizer ausgesprochen hatte, wurden noch am selben Abend die ersten jüngeren Kinder geimpft. Präsident Joe Biden sprach von einem "Wendepunkt" im Kampf gegen die Pandemie. Die US-Arzneimittelbehörde FDA hatte dem Impfstoff Ende vergangener Woche eine Notfallzulassung für diese Altersgruppe erteilt. Die Regierung begann daraufhin bereits, weitere Impfstoffdosen ins ganze Land auszuliefern. IS bekennt sich zu Anschlag in Kabul Bei einem Angriff auf ein Militärkrankenhaus in der afghanischen Hauptstadt Kabul sind mindestens 19 Menschen getötet und 50 weitere verletzt worden. Dies teilte ein Vertreter des Gesundheitsministeriums der radikalislamischen Taliban mit, die seit August in Afghanistan an der Macht sind. Der afghanische Ableger der Dschihadisten-Miliz Islamischer Staat bekannte sich zu dem Anschlag. Nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban hat die mit ihnen verfeindete IS-Miliz bereits mehrfach Anschläge verübt. Äthiopien ruft landesweiten Ausnahmezustand aus Nach dem Vormarsch der Volksbefreiungsfront von Tigray hat Äthiopiens Zentralregierung für sechs Monate einen landesweiten Ausnahmezustand ausgerufen. Er gibt den Behörden unter anderem die Möglichkeit, Straßensperren zu errichten sowie Verkehrs- und Kommunikationsverbindungen zu unterbrechen. Auch die Übernahme der Verwaltung durch das Militär in bestimmten Bereichen ist damit möglich. Zuvor hatten die Behörden der Hauptstadt Addis Abeba die Bewohner zu den Waffen gerufen. Die Rebellen hatten zuletzt die Einnahme zweier strategisch wichtiger Städte gemeldet und mit einem Vormarsch auf die Hauptstadt gedroht. Facebook gibt Gesichtserkennungs-Funktion auf Facebook schafft die Gesichtserkennungs-Funktion ab, mit der Nutzer automatisch in Fotos markiert werden konnten. Gespeicherte Daten zur Identifizierung der Gesichter von mehr als einer Milliarde Menschen werden gelöscht, wie das Online-Netzwerk ankündigte. In der Gesellschaft gebe es Sorgen um den Einsatz von Gesichtserkenungs-Technologien - und Regulierer seien immer noch dabei, Regeln dafür zu entwickeln, hieß es zur Begründung. Facebook sehe aber weiterhin Einsatzmöglichkeiten für die Technologie etwa für die Anmeldung bei einem Account oder das Entsperren eines Geräts. Niederländer müssen wieder Masken tragen Die Niederlande haben wegen steigender Ansteckungszahlen die Corona-Maßnahmen erneut verschärft. Regierungschef Mark Rutte kündigte in Den Haag unter anderem eine Ausweitung der Maskenpflicht an. Auch der Corona-Pass wird für mehr Orte verpflichtend. Bürger sollen wieder den Sicherheitsabstand von 1,5 Meter wahren. Erst vor gut einem Monat hatte das Land viele Maßnahmen aufgehoben und etwa die 1,5 Meter-Regel abgeschafft. Daraufhin waren die Infektionszahlen schnell gestiegen.

Senior executives of the multinational oil industry have been giving evidence to the Oversight Committee of the US Congress.

The oil representatives have denied that they or their companies misled anyone. Also in the programme: in Ethiopia, the war between federal government forces and their allies and the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front rages in two towns in Amhara region - we hear from a senior TPLF spokesman in Tigray; and, over a year after the blast in the port of Lebanon's capital killed over two hundred people, the judge leading the investigation faces continuing obstructions.
