countries. a haunting warning — as these funeral pyres burn through the night in the western indian city of nakpur, they indicate how the country is failing to save precious lives. this public hospital in india's capital, delhi, is simply unable to cope. romilla kumar came with her mother, who is on oxygen support and needs immediate aid. but, like many others, they are forced to wait for hours outside. since morning, we are calling people, trying for oxygen and everything, but nobody�*s responding. even though the government is opening new covid facilities to admit patients and transporting additional oxygen supply to the city, they cannot meet the unprecedented rush in the hospitals. for now, countries like the uk and the us have come to india's aid with essential medical supplies and oxygen kits, but much more is needed. and until then, for thousands
in the city, the endless nightmare continues during the day. on sunday, this hospital in north delhi has its oxygen stock dwindled. families like that of this man were told to organise oxygen on their own. he managed to refill the cylinder by paying 900 times the regular cost. for him, it's a small price to keep his father alive and breathing in the icu. translation: | got 10 | litres of oxygen cylinder, but how will it help? it won't last for more than one hour. where do we go? which government should we go to? who will give us oxygen? my father is in the hospital right now. as radit rushes to search for another oxygen refill, throughout the day, countless others are running out of time in india's capital. devina gupta, for bbc news, delhi. to the us where thejustice department has ordered an
assignation into the lewisville police department in kentucky following the fatal shooting of breanna taylor during a police raid a year ago. the announcement came a week after derek shelving, a former police officer, was found guilty of murdering george floyd, whose death spiked the black lives matter protests. —— chauvin. the inquest will look at whether the police acted unlawfully. today, thejustice department is opening a civil investigation into the louisvillejefferson county metro government and the louisville metro police department, to determine whether lmpd engages in a pattern or practice of violations of the constitution or federal law. the investigation will assess whether lmpd engages in a pattern or practice of using unreasonable force, including with respect to people involved in
peaceful expressive activities. atticus scott is a kentucky activist fighting for police accountability. she introduced accountability. she introduced a bill earlier this year which would band no knock search warrants in kentucky. she gave us her reaction to this enquiry. look, it is a start and definitely and i will say that the hundreds of people across the country who wrote to the attorney—general are the reason we are here today. it is a beginning. notjustice because justice would be breonna taylor being here and think she is not, we still demand that all of the officers involved in her murder are fired, arrested and charged. this is a beginning, a step towards accountability. i would say that there are definitely some folks here at home who are hopeful that that is indeed the case but we know what history has
shown us with the department ofjustice investigating into police department so we remain hopeful that it is a thorough and complete investigation. the system is not working. that is why every single week we are hearing about somebody�*s child being shot four times in the chest by police or a child with his hands up being murdered by police. this investigation is one of the tools that we need to have to hold police departments accountable. but it is definitely not justice, it is the beginning. in other news, the karen national union claim to have captured an outpost. witnesses in thailand said heavy findings that erupted with videos posted on social media showing flames and smoke on the hillside. a spokesman for the karen national unity said they had captured an outpost and bent it down. prisoners have been released in burundi following a presidential pardon. a move to

that's bbc.com/sport. but from me tulsen tollett and the rest of the team that's your sports news for now. our thanks to tolson tollett and the scene. —— team. before we go, we've got some incredible pictures of the first supermoon of 2021. a supermoon refers to a full moon that occurs when the moon's orbit is closest to earth — making it appear larger than life. this is how it appeared in istanbul on monday evening, over the city's galata tower at dusk. it was also seen in many other places around the world. these pictures come from venezuela. and earlier the supermoon was also seen in australia — these shots were taken at sydney's bondi beach. according to nasa this month's supermoon is set to be at peak illumination on april 27 or tuesday, so if you haven't caught itjust yet, there's still time.
on my way in, in the earliest hours of this morning, i didn't look out the window. i was busy reading all the news as you do so i missed that. i might pop out in a moment. hello again. this month has been a really dry month, particularly across parts of england and wales, where we've just recorded five millimetres of rainfall so far. and that's left the ground completely dried out, desiccated and cracked in places. but there are changes on the way. on monday, we started to see low pressure move in across scotland, and that brought some thicker cloud and finally some rain. and looking at the rainfall amounts that we're expecting through the rest of this week, we'll get around 5—10 millimetres of rain. in the grand scheme of things, that's not a huge amount, but it's easily doubling what we've seen for many so far this month. so the rain, i'm sure, is going to be pretty welcome for the farmers and growers, although you probably want even more than we're going to get. so, there's our area of low pressure moving its way in, and as we go through the next few hours, the rain will continue to push its way
southwards, always quite showery in nature, across northern ireland, northern parts of england as well. but with the cloudy skies across these northern areas, it doesn't get that cold. in the south, still cold enough, though, for some pockets of frost. it's here where we'll have the clear skies to start the day, and for some it will be a nice sunrise as well. through the day, our centre of low pressure is going to start to wobble back inland and dive in a diagonal south—westwards towards wales, and that will bring outbreaks of rain across northern england, wales, into the midlands. still some showers around for northern ireland and scotland as well, but it is an area of low pressure where the amount of rain that we see from place to place is going to vary quite a lot. now, on into wednesday, our low pressure continues its journey southwards, so again we'll see some rain moving into wales, parts of the midlands, southern areas of england this time with a few showers following. but on wednesday, we'll also
start to get a really quite brisk and cold east—to—north—easterly wind blowing in off the chilly north sea, and that means around some of our eastern coasts, temperatures may well struggle to get into double figures in places. even further west, it's not going to be exactly warm for the time of year. now, looking at the weather charts as we end the week, our area of low pressure moves back out into europe, but in its place, the winds tend to become pretty light. we've got cold air back with us, so again we're likely to see some night—time frosts. there will be loads of showers around, particularly on friday. and because there's not going to be that much wind around, there'll be nothing really to blow those showers along, so some of them could end up being pretty slow—moving in nature. and it's not going to be a particularly warm end to the week, but at least there's going to be a bit of rain.
