12:32 am

people in germany who were badly hit by last week's devastating floods. the lesson is in the historic town of bought, nor in iowa, where she found covered in a thick layer of mud. while it does not look anything like the popular tourist found known for its been yard. instead of finally reopening their restaurants and shops of the month of lockdown, residents of clearing tons of debris, some by stop, from kilometers away according to residence. local police have markets and tries to offer mental support, listening to relatives who lost their loved ones. like a man in his church witness, his parents being swept away, told me the image of the woman when swept away, waving her hand, crying for help. you know, i have to i didn't, didn't make it. and i'm not sure if they were found. like most people living along

12:36 am
a lot of house sick. yeah. she's been there since wednesday, but i think she's fine. what is striking in the wind city of iowa, is he optimism or survivors who have lost everything, but simply happy to be alive by keeping themselves busy with the largest clean up the city has ever seen. they don't need to think about everything they loft, but community leaders say that moment will eventually come. while there things might be replaceable, the trauma of losing their businesses and their life's work may be stuck with them forever. i'm afraid of the situation. that's not long away was the situation when people are finished with work, they have nothing to do that's time to read. and i'm afraid that then the situation is the people are falling apart inside of them. so far, the spirit in this down despite the enormous mass,
12:37 am
is one of confidence and hope that together they will get through this steadfast and al jazeera. but no, i live in germany because much of germany, the story is the same. adam rainy is about 40 kilometers away, where cobblestone streets were washed away and businesses ruined. were here in the historic boss hound, a bad move, the rifle and the clean up operation is in full swing. we have vigorous picking up all the debris that was stacked up and left behind from the rushing flood waters that have receded now. and we've seen half a dozen towns like this across this region. there's dozens of other gives you sense of the scope of the damage that germany is dealing with and to get it better since just take a look around this town, which is famous in the summer for tourists coming to take part in and hitting the spies and shop and some of the high end stores and you kind of traditional stores in this town in northwestern germany, this main street was covered in cobblestones,
12:38 am
mostly have been stripped away because of the flooding. you can see that the earth caved in more than a meter and some spaces more than 2 meters. some of the to sort building are actually being propped up by steel polls. and when you walk around this street, you step on the fastball that was the foundation of the cobblestones above them in the asphalt is so weak after being solved and water log that it breaks under the weight when you walk around. so germany is just now coming to terms with the billions of years of destruction. damage that it's going to have to somehow repair and rebuild in the coming months if not years. $180.00 wildfires burning across russia is normally freezing siberia region. the cookie area is one of the worst effected with more than 200552 battling the flames. while files do happen during severe is short summers be more intense this year because of unusually high temperatures. the 3rd year and arose,

officials warned residence to shut the windows and stay in doors to avoid choking smoke. he could, but with our eyes are burning and over all the smoke is very dangerous. for the health of us villages, we see on television plains that are dropping water on the burning forest. but i am sending these plains to help us for some reason. yet katia has been in the state of emergency for weeks. last month, the temperature saw to 38 degrees celsius if the highest ever recorded in the arctic circle. this snap from nasa shows and read the early summer heat waves that has been scorching eastern russia and europe. the figure says that's ok, it's all because of the drought for the 3rd year straight. we aren't getting the copious amount of rain that we used to get. the heat wave is sucking moisture of recon trees creating a tinderbox in siberia. usually one of the coldest regions on earth,
12:41 am
the fire is consuming what was once permanently frozen ground. and the carbon rich pete below. the scientists worry that this will release more carbon into the atmosphere and contribute to climate change their proper that i would probably kill the situation with was far as in our republic. it's very difficult because we are experiencing the try us summers of the past 150 years. and the code here on the month of june was the hospital records. the russian military is flowing in fi. fi has more than 2500 a battling the flames. the weather is exacerbating the problem. if not for the strong winds, we could do it faster. what you see, how strong winds are. that's our biggest problems right now. the passenger flights you could have been suspended now military playing to taking to the skies to douse the flames. but these fires are also igniting amongst resident by,

12:44 am
is policy jacob zoom. it denies any rolling corruption, sodas, toddlers. now the trial only got going in may after many, many, germans over the years. and then a couple of weeks ago, zoom was jailed for refusing to give evidence to a government corruption. inquiry that sparked the violence that swept these countries to most popular populace provinces in the last week. and there were concerns that with the trial restarting today, that would be another focus for violence. a load zoom and supporters did not set up in court in march book on monday, zoom as defense lawyer want this case adjourned again, its being heard virtually at the moment. they wanted to journey until zoom is able to pay in person to make his case. the judge rule on my application on tuesday, russia says that his success retested a new hypersonic cruise missile flying at 7 times the speed of sound. the miss all has been touted by russia superior to rivals existing arsenals. president vladimir

putin claims the technology is fast enough to bypass us defense systems. justin brock, as a research fellow at the world united services is jude in london, is federal to 0 earlier and said the michelle is being used as a threat by russia as opposed to being part of a nuclear arsenal. i think the main reason they're actually developing these to be able to continue to threaten american key bases. and i like bases and things like american carrier battle groups as echo carriers, which have very, very capable ballistic defense missile defense systems. and also missile defense systems can traditional even supersonic cruise missiles. so it's more of a means to continue to threaten high end conventional military capabilities rather than i think the new still to come on. i'm 0, an ancient tradition interrupted by a modern problem for the 2nd year. the pandemic means a streamlined hodge will tell you what to yoko is no longer interested in limerick,
12:46 am
appetizing in japan. ah, ah cruise me
12:47 am
. ah ah ah ah no, his peter learned. thank you very much, just for days to go now and one of the biggest sponsors of the take it with him because withdrawn all of the tv commercials in japan related to the games. because his biggest auto make a toyota will continue to athletes associated with the company. but at c, e o and other officials will not attend the opening ceremony on friday. it's
12:48 am
largely due to the lack of public support for the olympics with polled, suggesting 2 thirds of japanese people doubt the games can be held safely in tokyo . earlier, we spoke to simon chadwick, he's a professor of sport industry in the u. k. he believes that we have made the move to show solidarity with the japanese people. we already know that there is a great deal of public resistance to the olympics. and a poll polls continue to suggest that people don't want the olympics to be there. so i think it's a direct response to that from the part of toyota, toyota is actually a global sponsor. and so much of toyota's promotional activity act activation as we would call it marketing terms, is going to take place outside japan. anyway, i think really for me, it's the symbolism of what's happened inside japan. that's going to be more significant. because i think if toyota was seemed to be associated with an event that may alternately become known as a super spread or events that wouldn't play well with the japanese public. so i
12:49 am
think what toyota is doing is to send a signal to, to the japanese public that i understand that it empathize isn't and that it's not going to do anything to the that he's detrimental to, to the tokyo population covered 90 cases in the athletes village were expected, that's according to the head of the take you independent panel of medical experts. just 4 days ago i, as the president thomas buck said that they were 0, johns of athletes infecting the japanese public with corona virus. those words are not looking very safe right now on sunday to south african football as were the 1st to test positive. and the total of games related infections is now $58.00. it is expected that as we go through the different layers of filtering, we see cases coming out. so we see cases currently who've been tested before, departure, who are not coming. we see people who get then get to the airport and they get filtered. i dare then he gets further that when you get to village, each layer of filtering as a reduction in the risk for everybody else. and that's what we expect to see. and
12:50 am
numbers we're seeing are actually extremely low. they probably lower than we expected to see if anything. i see president thomas has encouraged athletes and officials of the turkey games to embrace the meaning and spirit of the limpid truce . a mural was unveiled in the olympic village on monday with urging people to fund the panels to show their commitments in helping make a better and more peaceful world through sport. the olympic truce calls for the lane down of alms across the world and for fighting to stop during the period of the games. the olympics have shown that organizing a big sporting of in, during the panoramic is clearly a huge challenge. and tough athletes to training with the possibility of their events being postponed or cancelled. al jazeera pete adobe revolt from the half i, and then triathlon race in lottie in finland, which involves 1.9 kilometer swim, and 90 kilometer bike ride, and a half marathon. sleepy
12:51 am
a back quarter, the chicago of the nordic countries, all those episodes were lottie. all wrong until recently, however, about the most exciting thing to do was practice your winter ski jumping skills during the summer on a really long piece of competing. and then triumph long came to term for the race director. this is not been easy. last year, when the pandemic hit, this race was postponed and then cancelled outright. we had good plans from our own organization and we had to really good communication and relationship with all the local, local, and health authorities. so we had a constant communications with them and we of course we monitored the code to trace them since the athletes to it's not been an easy journey either they've had to adopt and adapt to the new normal. and if you can't swim in water to train, well,
12:52 am
you improvise, can we do a new? i'm also in france, we haven't had swimming pools, they have all been closed. so i have been training swimming in the elastic band or whatever. but with training old on it's time to rack the bike panic just a little bit more concentrate just a little bit more and then we'll just do it. why go? the competing at this level is no easy task. this is not a 5 k park run on a saturday morning. these people unnaturally competitive. the very competitive, but what do they do if they can't compete? also from a secure pointing. but how do you maintain that focus when the race might not
12:53 am
happen? how to go like getting another goal and ok, well, it's very hard to cope and somebody needs help to coping it. for example, to go to sports. i call it this whole mental coach or, or if you have a friend to talk about because it is very hard. but the real test for everyone here was the possibility of coping transmission. according to the race director's office, the number of new cases associated with this event 0. and that's a huge success story. and then before you know it's, it's all over no more swimming, no more cycling, no more running for the race organizer. has it been a success? yes, but frankly, has it been a success? yes, it absolutely has. these people trained, they retrained, they plan, they re plan and they got here despite corona virus. and despite the impact of all the international travel restrictions that we all now have to live with, this is the new normal, can international sport survive corona virus,
12:54 am
