5:24 pm
during an expedition several months ago in the same area where he was last seen with dom phillips video was already being threatened because he was helping local tribes collect evidence of the invasions to their territories and report them to local authorities. here both of them are 1st, we were very hopeful that both men were alive because don was with bruno, who is very experienced. the family thought they must have been ambushed by managed to hide the boat and escape through the forest. but our week has gone by and our hopes are diminishing. all we will now is for them to be found. we have a right to know what happened to them. this march is not only to put pressure on the government, flying rider. don phillips, i'm indigenous extra little bit it. so for a bigger cause, people here say both men defend saving. the amazon monica in ocoee of al jazeera rio de janeiro. the u. n says at least
5:25 pm
a 100 people have been killed and fighting between rival tribes over the last week and see dawned. the fighting started of a land dispute between nomadic arab and african tribes and west doth for providence . armed men later attack several villages in the area and mighty tribes want access to water and grazing for their livestock and became fossil at least $100.00 people have been killed in an attack in the north happened around the city of se tenga, in the border with near the slamming state released this video or line shortly after the attack became faster, has struggled with attacks by our group since 2015 or the 2000 people have been killed. and then nearly 2000000 displaced. the british foreign secretary lives trust is expected to introduce new legislation to change parts of the northern on and protocol e has worn the u. k, against trying to alter the post breaks it,
5:26 pm
trade deal on its own little the non ins. pro british democratic union is party strongly opposed to the existing agreement. it's fade, they could be a trade war if no solution is found. let's get attorney angela. he joins us from outside parliament in london. so charlie, what is the government proposing? who will have the full text in about 10 minutes. but boy johnson has already been doing the rounds today talking it down saying it's a relatively trivial set of adjustments. but that is not how it seen by some here. some in the e u. and in northern ireland and fact the know that on government has just come out saying they strongly reject little possible terms. this new legislation that the government is proposing which goes expressly against the wishes of most businesses and most people in northern ireland. and that's going to be a real blow to boris johnson because one of his arguments for these new proposals has been that under the current rules,
5:27 pm
the protocol will undermine trade between great britain and northern ireland and cripple some of the trade that so to have that contradicted by the know them government is going to be quite brutal for him. now what the government is proposing is essentially a new system of 4 to check. so 2 routes for goods to go from here to, to on. and if they go to northern ireland, they'll go through a green lane where they won't go through checks if they go to the republic of on a go through read label, they'll be forced to undergo much more stringent checks. but there is a considerable pushback from many conservative m p 's here, who fear that this bill could break international law. the treaty that boris johnson himself pushed for unsigned and agreed on in 2019. so what they're saying is it will undermine what everything that britain stanfull this understand that the anger in the you, the commission has said that it would break trust between the 2 sides. and they
5:28 pm
could be forced to north legal action against the u. k. and perhaps even retaliate with some trade restrictions, it could also put into jeopardy the relationship between the u. k. and the us because president biden has said what his priority is stupidity in northern ireland . and at the crux of this is that good friday agreement that is enshrined and protected hope. what was press meant to be protected by the brick set deal changes to this protocol could undermine, thus will find out the, the full details in the next 15 minutes. it seems that might be a deal to be done between the you and the u. k. a, but at the moment it's gonna take a lot of good will and the move that the government are about to make, could undermine that. thank you for that tale angela in london. the number of nuclear weapons around the world is set to rise for the 1st time since the end of the cold war. it's the warning coming from the start comb,
5:29 pm
international piece research institute. the thing time says the when you craig will make it hard to convince countries to disarm the research, to say, recent signalling by russian president vladimir putin has made all the countries think again about that nuclear strategies. the latest figures show there more than $12000.00 nuclear warheads around the world. russia and the u. s. have 90 percent of all those weapons. the inter cheat also notes that china is expanding its nuclear arsenal. satellite images show it's building 300 new missile silos. to re graph is the former head of verification security policy at the international atomic energy agency. he says nuclear armed countries are developing weapons to counter other nuclear powers. partly it is because china wants to push back the united states from the issue a pacific region. also, india, pakistan, and north korea are building up. there are snow slowly,
5:30 pm
and we don't know whether this railways are adding nuclear weapons to their us. and then finally, the united kingdom will not go down to $180.00 nuclear warheads. they will remain at a ceiling of about $260.00. so that explains, in a sense, the small rise for us, any country with nuclear weapons, those is a big threat because any one of the 9 countries with nuclear weapons, good use nuclear weapons, deliberately or by accident. even the united states said that there prompt administration had a policy of using nuclear weapons, due restore strategic stability and russia. they talk about using nuclear weapons to deescalate the conventional conflict. india and pakistan also have rushed out by using nuclear weapons if they are losing a conventional war. so i think the danger is from all 9 countries, north korea would be looking at how the united states unit actually just to get to send the joint comprehensive plan of action with iran limiting around new.
