5:17 am
those detainees haven't got the right to a lawyer ought to be informed why they've been arrested. human rights groups say that many a process in mass hearings in which evidence isn't usually presented freeness as a husbands among them. my husband was working and i didn't find out. he was detained until 10 pm gala, or the congress dominated by the ruling party, overwhelmingly, voted for the measures to continue with the lookin, the president of el salvador. and his government will do everything that is required to guarantee that these 50000 game members have been captured. that us will not put a foot inside the communities. and why not? the state of exception is widely popular among and electra exhausted and traumatized by decades of predatory gang. i live an association of bus companies has said that extortion among its members who's dropped by 95 percent. i'm the president, the architect of the crackdown regularly tweets,

the countries seeing days of 0 murders as a result of it. but at what price? amnesty international says dozens of people have died in custody. and on the past, crackdowns, the gangs of simply re emerged again at the end. but i can, but there is a sort of on this as soon as the rest of the government puts away those concerns and lambasted critics. it says it's, it was more when this john holman al jazeera, an exhibitions in south korea capital has been showing off the latest in drone technology, including military hardware as, as the country arms industry. mergers is the 8th logistics bought in the world's help. in part by the war, ukraine, from the bride reports from so it's some of the latest military drone technology that's transforming the way war risk falls from stealthy surveillance high above the battlefield,
5:19 am
to sudden precision attacks down onto it. they're used by both sides in the war in ukraine has increased interest globally. thrown on. we have seen drones been widely used in ukraine, which shows data say city is increasing. so i think the market is getting bigger and bigger at high tech weapon making. it's supported by south korea as advanced manufacturing, just as it's precision and heavy engineering have helped it become a leading supplier now benefiting from the war in ukraine or south korea. the war provides both opportunity, but also risk is stopped short of supplying weapons directly to ukraine for fear of angering. russia, which exert influence over north korea. but the war has also increased demand from east european nations who want to buy ever more nato standard equipment. south korea has used its alliance with the us and friendly ties with nato to position
5:20 am
itself as the supplier of choice, signing its biggest, ever single arms deal with poland for tanks, self propelled guns and fighter jets to replace equipment that poland sent to you. crane. pretty and i told you i was, i'm good, i'm going through the nato summit. we exported the k to tank the canine howard here and f, a 50 jack to poland, achieving our biggest ever arms sale last year. south korea is mil, 3 exports set. a record of more than $7000000000.00, a figure that is already eclipsed by sales this year. thanks in part to fighting thousands of kilometers away in eastern europe. robert bride al jazeera, sole violent storm has hit the french island of corsica. kenning, 3 people. hurricane force winds up reaching trees and left tens of thousands without power. a senior girl was among those killed because she was hit by falling tree at
5:21 am
a camp site. 2 people were critically injured. now the rhine river flows through 6 european countries. it is a key was away transporting coal on, on the natural resources. but weeks of high temperatures and little or no rainfall have made it impossible for many ships, dominic cane reports and claim it could almost be a picture postcard of the rhine goods barges chug up and down the river. while children explore the pebbles on the bank. and yet a closer look shows something else for in most summers, much of this area would be submerged. but months of high temperatures and little or no rainfall have changed things. or we see right now with a low or water levels in rivers is the new normal or it's even worse of the new normal will be even more extreme. we have seen a global temperature increase of 1.2 degrees on global average right now seen from
5:22 am
overhead. the situation is clear, this satellite image of nearby dusseldorf shows the river. now, this one, how it was in the same place, 12 months ago, if the science of what's happening is clear, the practical application of it is causing problems for many different companies. the shipping ones in particular because they look at the rhine as it is now and have real concerns about how deep it is and how easily they can navigators. and crucially how much each of their vessels can carry. for one or 3rd, one ships bringing salt here from high up on usually carry almost 2200 tons. now they're arriving with $600.00 tons. and that shows the less water, the less cargo on the ships. and in this year of war in ukraine, there is another drawback with russian coal now embargoed across the e. u. many companies have paid to ship
5:23 am
a non russian alternative via the rhine instead. but as the demand has risen, so the water levels to allow it to be delivered have dwindled. right now, most shipping companies are concentrating on the near future with autumn just weeks away. they expect its cooler, wetter weather to replenish the wine. but some scientists say that too could bring danger, dance terrain on touch the dry. it was the water can not infiltrate into the soil and with diamond get surface run off. and the water runs out of the system of catchment and produces such threat shots as we know from, from california. for example, the rhine has run dryer in summer before, but not often. it will have to rain a lot to return the river to its more normal state. dominant cane al jazeera cologne,
5:24 am
and pakistan weeks of floods and landslides have killed more than 650 people in the south west. the government has sent help, but many say the response has been too slow. cut, lopez for the young has. most of these people have lost everything. floods have swept to the village of tanza in south west pakistan, destroying their homes, and livelihoods, roads that were clear just weeks ago, have turned to lakes, leaving thousands stranded it. oh, we've had more rain, misha. he's had a severe impact on many areas along the river belt. the water is leveled off in some parts, talked about it already destroyed, himes crops, and infrastructure. the aftermath is overwhelming. more than a 1000000 people have been affected by flash floods and last lights and hundreds have died across 4 provinces. w. climate change officials say is fueling unpredictable weather patterns. entire communities across baluchistan province are

5:27 am
i hope the children run. i couldn't do anything because what was happening outside as you can see my house, the garage is destroyed. i couldn't say anything. it's god's will. thank god, the children of the forest fires have become an annual occurrence in algeria, where climate change is turning large areas into a tinderbox. most of the death this time have occurred in the l. tar region near the eastern border with 2 nicea, temperatures have reached 48 degrees celsius. 100 the people have had to flee their homes with many more having suffered from burns or re spirit re issues as a result of the smoke. some are blaming are so back to what you gain when you set it, fire and people die. what does the arson is gain from setting these fire? i hope is hard burns. across country. dozens of fires are still burning with
5:28 am
authorities concerns. strong winds in the blistering heat wave could spark new flames that they are ill equipped to fight chile wolf, al jazeera, heavy rain as hit new zealand for a 3rd day, causing major disruption, flooding and land slides across the country. for some roads to close. on the south island, nearly 400 homes have been evacuated. the city of nelson husband west his after receiving more than a month's rainfall in just a day. our scientists in australia, the u. s. a hoping to bring the tasmanian tiger back from extinction, also known as thy last seen, the animal died in captivity in 1936. such is want to take stem cells from living species with similar dna and then use gene editing technology to create an animal very similar to the tasmanian tiger. there's been consistent skepticism about attempts to bring animals back from extinction. when lamb is the ceo of colossal
5:29 am
bio sciences, that's the company involved in this project. he explains why and how he wants to bring back the tasmanian tiger. the story the tells me entire is a tragic one. it was actually hunted 100 percent to extinction by mankind in early settlers in tasmania and in australia. and was crazy about story was not only was it hunted to extinction, it was also given an, a terrible reputation that it was eating sheep, which none of that was true. and so it's a great opportunity for us to leverage cutting edge, you know, editing technologies to bring back a species that man eradicated under completely false pretenses. now we already off to the right start. so 1st we map existing genomes of the specimens that we have in the case of the policy. we've got incredible specimens. we also have hundreds of pell specimens. so even new population genome studies understand not just one gene but a lot of genomes of different thousands. and then we compare that to the same process
5:30 am
that we do with the closest living relative which in this case is called a little more to. busy back out on our and then after we look at the genome, we do all the computational biology to understand the differences in the genes that create the traits. we then use cutting, you're generating technologies like christopher and a few others to actually combine those genomes and create a resulting embryo on it. needs to people have died on to, to planes, collided at a local airport in california by small aircraft to trying to land. when the collision happen in watsonville south san francisco, being investigated by the federal aviation administration. ah, this is out there at the top stories and he's for explosions have had a military force in russian.
