6:01 pm
we're expecting over the next few days staying dry eyes to the extremities of our map and in the central patch that's where we'll see lots of wet weather now across australia we're also looking at some wet weather here but this is edging in from the southwest you can see it here already a fair amount of cloud in the southwestern parts of western australia and that area of weather gradually edges its way eastwards as we head through monday and tuesday it will bring us some pretty stormy conditions some of us could see around fifty millimeters of rain and winds gusting over ninety kilometers per hour so that could cause a few power outages here and bring down some trees as well for the eastern part still cool here for many of us melbourne no hotter than around thirteen degrees as we head through tuesday woman city up at eighteen. eradicating leprosy in cambodia relies on education and treatment. on.

6:05 pm
them completely but some warn the danger of nuclear war is greater now than it has been in decades but we are home has more. it was twenty three years after the us dropped an atomic bomb on hiroshima six years after the cuban missile crisis five nuclear armed nation signed a deal a nine hundred sixty eight the brought the world back from the brink of a potentially catastrophic war the us russia u.k. france and china undertook in good faith to give up the nuclear weapons the risk to the world pledged not to acquire them in every country in the world signed up to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty known as the n.p.t. with three exceptions india pakistan and israel we are willing for the banning of or let me guess it everybody else agrees to all three now have nuclear weapons and then there's north korea it walked away from the n.p.t.
6:06 pm
so what could exploit peaceful nuclear technology to make nuclear bombs itself something around end others are also accused of as it stands now there are nine nuclear nations and by that assessment the n.p.t. was a success dire forecasts of a global nuclear arms race never came to pass nuclear warheads once in the thousands of thousands plummeted by around eighty percent but if judged by the pledge to reduce nuclear warheads to zero well it's fallen far short the stock crime international peace research institute all sipri is to make zero most fifty thousand nuclear weapons worldwide all but around a thousand of them are and you. u.s. and russian hands signatories to the n.p.t. when required to abolish nuclear weapons completely they simply had to act in good faith to disarm experts say if it's towards nuclear disarmament a slowing prompting warnings of
6:07 pm
a new arms race as nuclear weapon states like the u.s. and russia look to inject billions of dollars into modernizing and developing the nuclear arsenals but they resist strong push for change even if the world's nine nuclear armed nations and the are resisting it just last year one hundred twenty two countries signed up to a new treaty to ban nuclear weapons it also prohibits nations from allowing nuclear weapons to be held on the territory sanctioned by the united nations it was the product of a ten year if it's for the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons or i can but the nine nuclear armed states refused to turn up and the u.s. urged its allies to vote against or boycott the u.n. conference i came won the nobel peace prize last year for it if it's but it has a tough job to here it needs fifty states to rectify the new nuclear ban treaty to make it legally binding to date only ten countries have done so none of them major

world powers medium honed down to zero. sweeping canadian tariffs on dozens of u.s. imports come into effect on sunday it's also his response to the trumpet administration's tariffs on steel and alan minium experts are warning an escalating trade war could damage the global economy and the calendar there are fears of a downturn al-jazeera as daniel lack reports from toronto. among the millions of products canada gets from the u.s. most of its recreational boats but summer fun afloat will be more costly now as the tariff on imported yachts takes effect a response to the trumpet ministrations actions and rhetoric on steel and. we're helping one client who has a boat right now in miami who has already purchased the boat that's paid for he needs to bring it back to canada and he's looking at you know ten percent on top of hundreds of thousands of dollars more than steel aluminum and sailboats canada's
6:09 pm
also putting tariffs on the clock tick range of u.s. goods each of them and at a politically sensitive part of the country chocolate for example from the swing state of pennsylvania u.s. states are the key to auto was trade war strategy canada is the leading destination for exports from thirty six of them many are being targeted for counter tariffs that's adding to the concerns of companies with cross border business as talks between the u.s. canada and mexico to renew nafta the north american free trade agreement stagnate some firms like this toronto pipe maker are expanding u.s. operations in fear that the border may soon be a barrier my concern is the uncertainty about investing in canada. and what this will do even if it goes away to morrow will buyers and united states you know look at working with companies as potentially risky. trade props up canada's prosperity
6:10 pm
particularly with its largest trading partner the us more than a billion dollars in business flows between them every day now as canada's government sees it a protectionist administration in washington is sweeping away decades of consensus on trade that the u.s. itself helped establish after the second world war beneath all the bombast there's a logic to it that instead of having him a rules based system same rules apply to everybody the global trading system we've had for the last seventy five years then it's bilateralism awkward word but one off deals. they were the big guys are going to have one off deals. the government in ottawa is hoping that targeted counter-terror will add to pressure on the us administration to settle this dispute and lead to a new nafta deal but much is at stake and the costs of failure are immeasurably high especially in a country so dependent on trade with its giant neighbor. daniel acknowledges era

toronto navy divers have gone two hundred meters deeper into a flooded cave in thailand in search of a boys' football team and their coach video released by the time navy shows how murky waters in complete darkness have hampered the weeklong rescue operation in the cave some progress has been made since the weather cleared on friday and still no sign of the team though scott has the latest from chiang rai. a little bit of good news coming overnight saturday into sunday morning here at the mouth of the cave seal divers navy seal divers have been in the water for the last several hours and several teams have been going back and forth we know now that they are at the furthest distance they have been yet in the cave but they haven't gone that far right on the sea it's only about two hundred meters further than they had been further than that three kilometer mark there kind of stuff because of weather over the last several days and now two hundred meters further in but their immediate goal is to get to a place called the beach it's a cavern named after
6:12 pm
a famous beach here in thailand they are still four to six hundred meters away from that they're trying to get there because they believe that could be a spot where the boys and their coach might have retreated to when floodwaters came rushing into the cave system here so that is the incremental good news coming from the cave here we also know that teams are still working for a way in from the top in the hills in case how is this massive cave system they're still looking for a way in a new cavern a new tunnel downward tunnel was discovered over the weekend they are still trying to access that they're still trying to get down in there we know that in a couple of cases they have dropped supplies so that is still being exploited up in the hills above the cave now we know seven nations have joined the search and rescue operations here you have a u.s. navy personnel here australia has sent some forces japan is here the united kingdom has diving experts here so a true international effort but right now there is a little bit of good news but still no definitive proof to fit in the evidence
6:13 pm
where these boys and their coats might be. a pro-democracy rally is being held in hong kong to mark the twenty first anniversary of the city's return to chinese rule organizers say the demonstration highlights china's growing influence in the former british colony a day earlier hong kong's leader kerry lamb said the one country two systems governing framework was intact but critics are questioning her commitment to the autonomy after the recent jailing of a number of opposition activists. south sudan's latest cease fire has been violated just hours after coming into effect with at least twelve people killed in the north government forces and rebels are accusing each other of breaking the truce agreement was signed by president salva kiir and rebel leader react machar in neighboring sudan at least fifty thousand people have been killed and four million forced from their homes since the civil war began in two thousand and thirteen the un had warned both sides to stop the fighting by the end of june or they'd face
6:14 pm
sanctions and while the african union is urging south sudan's leaders to continue their talks the organization is holding a summit tomorrow tamia on sunday but a recent attack in mali is likely to dominate the agenda al-jazeera has more from the capital. african leaders are concerned about the growing instability in the savage in particular following the deadly attack targeting their headquarters of the g five in severity in mali g five is a task force which comprises troops from mauritania burkina faso chad need share and somali and its goal is to defeat groups affiliated with al qaida the islamic state and boko haram and in spite of the assistance that the g five has been getting from the international community of the un and france it seems that this is going to be a long battle to be able to contain the rise of those groups the african union also is concerned about the instability in south sudan following the collapse of the
6:15 pm
cease fire now leaders meeting here in mauritania are going to put more pressure on the south sudanese president because i care and here's why i've already much chance to try to contain the crisis and push for a roadmap that's good and civil war in south sudan and there are also other issues like the dispute between morocco and the police are we are over the future of western sahara african union is a pan african organization a mean to speed up political and economic integration they hope to be able to have their own single market single currency and a central bank but many say this is going to take some time unless african union's tackle first of all regional conflicts the need and conflicts for them to be able to pursue their political agenda.
6:16 pm
oh yeah it's not. zero. zero zero zero zero. zero zero zero zero zero zero s. . where ever you are. and this is difficult not to say whether someone is going for someone's favorite it doesn't matter we may try to
6:17 pm
think it's how you approach an individual and i think it is a certain way of doing it to qantas barge in and get a story and fly out. well you. know some of the like all will.
6:18 pm
6:19 pm
thanks thanks thanks.
6:20 pm
6:21 pm
. the seven billion lights in the school and each one is still. demonstrably. documentaries. the test for the skin.
6:22 pm
so in some way it could be an organism that's producing the next month of august. over the last twenty is more than fourteen million people have been saying and the number of new to the text of cases this fall and dramatically but in the last decade progress has stagnated threatening our chances of completely eradicating the disease. and i'm here in cambodia to see how a new is zero transmission strategy is being used to track down and treat potential sufferers in the hope that leprosy can be wiped out. leprosy is a chronic infection caused by the bacteria mycobacterium lepper a disease spreads in droplets of nasal mucus between people in close and frequent contact it damages peripheral nerves and as the disease progresses nerves swell
6:23 pm
hands feet and facial skin become numb and muscles paralyzed leading to deformity. loss of sensation also increases the risk of injury with open wounds often becoming infected leprosy is entirely curable and if treated in the early stages disability can be averted yet it still affects thousands of people around the world. so how big a problem is that in cambodia. program . in cambodia. so in. many leprosy in. affective treatment.
6:24 pm
there are limited. so they cannot access to gold roads you know that's why i didn't touch them. over time patients new sensation in their hands and feet meaning that any cuts and so as they develop a painless if these become infected it committal to the loss of fingers and toes as he's left for a so big house right and also maybe today people can still so they make the show and i'm taking yeah is it painful i could have just had just said real thursday just. just a little bit today getting the x. and walk back to continue my studies there physio to have to have freeze over all night and it made me when i make it and we did like we can miles and ya. can you tell us what music you're listening to you are like me or i'll head off.
6:25 pm
some camping go wild you know and so yeah when feelings try to go to our all be quiet i'm happy thank you very much and good luck feel leg getting a new leg and that ain't all that it was used thank you very much. like i said i said ok. thank you hi option can you show us how it looked to say as a fact that you got more than one kid in the. middle stick to the knees. with a chain wait and see where that is affected the long in the in the body is close to toast become amputated because this area gets nailed and then what happens is people damage it just just doing the daily activities walking around and it's not going to get someone so the damage itself can actually take off the times the person will be good night as effect the eyes.
6:26 pm
thank you are to. medicines to cure leprosy are available free of charge all around the world these are provided by pharmaceutical company novartis through the world health organization and have been hugely successful in the fight against leprosy but recently progress has stagnated in june twenty thirty experts from around the world met to develop a new strategy to completely halt the transmission of leprosy the last mai-ling fighting leprosy proved to be the most difficult one what we now do space look at every patient who is diagnosed specially and look up the look of his contacts persons in his family's household the neighbors his colleagues examine them for their procedure and if they do have signs of the procedure opus see they should be treated fairly with the multi-group terrapins leprosy is also very much associated
6:27 pm
with stigma when you get a diagnosis of leprosy you may be excluded from society completely in some countries or you may lose your job which very often is the case. our plan is to introduce that in several pilot areas in six countries in the world to demonstrate that this is feasible and when we have critical mass of data we could convince the rest of the world to apply that as well yes and this is what we hope to do. i pay out a rope her neck to know that means that now but what if you buy it off i guess you might say these guys health workers and they can go into the local communities and. diagnose a chance to see a hypoxia but it will be at the end got you. new for the new on new day some the news and not the labor right i run now which
6:28 pm
member said on the q. and a much more case of the fifty or so three hundred meters around the house where the person was identified yeah yeah it is reading tracking down that procedure and is the how to go through it of the fish and among those that were seeking through. to eradicate it i think it's obvious that most don't want to match that particularly when you're. in a country still recovering from civil war and genocide the basic health care provision available means that knowledge about leprosy is limited a key element of the strategy is raising awareness of the disease reducing the stigma surrounding it and informing the communities that the health workers are coming before the contact tracing begins the team put on a festival for the local community so that when it just just getting ready for the field to show where people are going to be told about leprosy and that she cannot stand and began to speak is going on the next day from the open i come with you yet
6:29 pm
really good. to see. that this is ok this is not what i was expecting with ecstasy to be driving along in the van but over the program on the phone from one of the problems of the fire was all of what i was going to have about a vocal group out on the compound of the not far from that i'm about i don't tell my people but ma'am i'm not afraid of anybody it's not as easy for me from about. my house this is the key elements of the stuff here to go out into the pit and tell people about the show but again that i never see her home on her own car number one i would call her older than i would girl call or five or whatever haha. i'm amazed by how many people arrive for the show. it really demonstrates the power of putting on a show for communities such as this one we. would
6:30 pm
. like to. know what. this show is telling of a show about iraq. is as much about information if you met him i didn't know what was the real one who was who the. little ones who got killed. i guess you could make a living on one of the last. night the actors perform parables about leprosy to educate the community about the
6:31 pm
reality of the disease and also to inform them about the contact tracing that will take place the next day. now they come to. ok have to. be going to check up on. how many think. about what to actually get. the team doubters at the home of the cured leprosy patient from where they will head out into the surrounding community to trace his contacts to check if anyone has been infected. with the person. hello nice to you it diagnosed five years ago. do you have any symptoms from the leprosy still. have been. no not on me and on who lives with. my what i do with three children
6:32 pm
that keep me very busy yes ok. so you have one child affected by let's see about can we meet your child. oh hello ok. i am live rather you need him to be legalized to me to how do you. do so and when did you get diagnosed. and how did they diagnose you how did they know that you had leprosy. was not. where's where is the package can you show us. thank you so it's very it's very very subtle. it's the health care workers have been trained how to defend the test for they touch the skin lightly and the patient is asked to report if they can feel it whether leprosy is the coffee that because the area is now no more fertile now
6:33 pm
but the team confirms that germany has been entirely cured of leprosy thanks to the medication what do you think might have happened had the health care workers not come to find you and i mean connie do you do you give them yes so this is this is how easy it is to treat leprosy there's no big deal needles there's no drips there's literally a small packet of pills the patient just keeps in the home just takes one every day and it's free. for more jim john leo you know on friday me. about them were known for i mean. it was really important and little part of the tracing health care i came here had been burned there verifying with that they've got even members of the family. name i went around in the area all of them is meticulously. so we're going to cover an area of about three hundred
6:34 pm
meters asking to go into the home and examine people looking for the signs like this or just the pale patches or asking if people have symptoms. that they. are out there. yet and. that was really going to. come in and that. was. over when i was. in the ranks of the one. who lose on the you know let me try it with some of the union movement. something like that in another neighborhood and it will really. look like. in the same venue is another
6:35 pm
previous patient who was reexamined to ensure the treatment has been entirely successful here. ok so this is. the person ok when you had your diagnosis of leprosy how were your friends with you differently with a just the same. to give him the jump. you know. your god to move. him. and does that still happen or are your friends more understanding of the condition now i'm ok len i get the budget corner been cracked open and when i'm done i. can tell you with women but. we're going to you
6:36 pm
a little. bit here that they have actually just identified. a little area here that you can see on this young man's leg the top of it you put on the second. they. now know to hold what put it back no matter. what you did among the one. gram. know that on on there on the. moon the you know the feeling for the meds on the inside of the arm just by the elbow sometimes they can be second with the disease these are the most typical lives that can be affected. after various noninvasive tests the team finally confirms the prac. so have we made the diagnosis and. this is leprosy.
6:37 pm
non-starters treatment today starts its day. you know you. live. in this movie had no. idea. how to listen here is recorded the area of skin that was affected when we saw the tape it meant to auction what it was and i was absolutely vital as at this young man's family members the potential contacts with the disease are all recorded on here so they can either be checked today for the health of the visitors come back and check them another day when they're all present. so this is all them up to come up personally as. early you know disability yeah we will be wait until three more he'll have this ability so this is the. great knees. by
6:38 pm
a human products diagnosis means that he can start treatment immediately and should be able to cure himself and it's a perfect example of the importance of this strategy the team will continue to go from community to community tracing the contacts of previous patients with this new strategy on the existing drugs the hope must be that one day no one need suffer from the devastating impact of. one of the greatest challenges facing the world today is increasing rise of bacteria resistant to antibiotics meaning that even the most common infections could become impossible to treat and taking us into what is being known as opposed to. i'm dr john place and i'm here in norway to join the first part of a worldwide expedition on the hunt for new antibiotics. the pharmacy project is a collaboration between scientists from across the world the goal is to collect
6:39 pm
marine organisms from some of the hottest deepest and coldest places on the planet which have never been searched before the hope is to create vital new drugs and antibiotics from them and the project starts here in the fields of norway. funds can you explain to me why is there a name for finding your own body it's been in years since the war seven years ago and already a lot of people are immune to pencil in order different at their belt explain how more and more people die of the force of infection with antibiotics but by killing or preventing growth of bacteria by breaking down the cell walls or interfering function synthesis but over time bacteria can build a natural resistance this is drastically celebrated when they are misused such as when we don't finish our prescription the surviving bacteria will then be produced
6:40 pm
with inbuilt resistance to that antibiotic. runs his hope is that the incredible marine life here will provide solutions to this problem but in organists they have the main story better move to get there though infection so when can isolate the not trying to avoid things they produce weaker maybe produce a new antibiotic for human use yeah it's a long process and it takes many years but. it must be done. the team on board the helm hunts and will be trolling organisms from the bottom of the sea as well as sending out dive teams to hand-pick marine life from the sea floor. eighty miles north of the arctic circle marine life that can survive under these conditions will hopefully have. the right properties to become the basis of new antibiotics.
6:41 pm
why do you think in this environment sickness seems to be the key findings and you want to kill them and by months have. you finally shifting away from the county stream the snow then or you must also use these old. extremal fires as we. have through evolution adaptive suppression of cyclists at the organist's further so long as. you have large amounts of organised by diversity that must compete for space. so they can compete for example by reducing deterrence chemicals right all over the species. turns out the songs will.
6:42 pm
take everything back to the bone have a look at them close to look. at this time of year is part of norway doesn't get dog meaning that for three weeks the team will be working for twenty four hours a day. writing. one i mean. once the organisms are collected the team and the on board lab arrange them into species ready to be sent ashore and see what we've got. so there are some interesting stuff to start with. i do it's this kind of move to the monks normal space rich harbors like you're going to need to separate everything out it's really tedious work. but. there we also have some new difference on people watch just with your bare bones through filler to get a listers really so these guys must produce a lot of interesting chemicals well then they would just put everything on the
6:43 pm
table you take the person with thank you intel on the new guy. and use the same lawyers sue stores so lovely all of the time consuming world care would separate i love with to go through this resume to the point work and drive them along with it with a month to start here. so in some way could be an organism that's producing the next antibiotic maybe maybe this petri dish as it. is hope so. the species are taken to the state of the art lab at the university of trauma. on my hard resume on job hard work you know. as you can see this is a good start so i well that's what he's doing now is kind of cutting out for
6:44 pm
somebody just putting up with office shifts thing i want to prescribe a sample. it's is somewhat dense the system and this is the stuff bush ground up in your problem with microorganisms such as plankton which are also collected on the boat need to be cultivated in the lab to create enough quantities to analyze what we have here this is where we have our full ethanol are on the chemical and extract that's a said the good the molecules of the three and the the the the few. so this is star is knowing that you inside one of these test you could be a new drug a new antibiotic or even look but the thing that we need. such wrong order. we are going to do next with the samples though are going through what you say screened. with what a final goal is i don't know why the activities we have been doing this the samples . but this is a robot which actually is doing all the screening lawyer says the bacteria is in
6:45 pm
one of them solution the other somebody actually acts in all of one and always thought of mixing them and so if you find that one of those samples has killed the bacteria in your petri dish what's the next stage when you know what the next thing is that to find out which are the most cures are actually the actor one against the bacteria. finding the active molecule is a painstaking process and even when one is found the scientists have to make sure it isn't an existing antibiotic. trying for free work what is the dream wonder what do you hope to come out of this whole process well done that we can come up with some new molecules active against bacterial even more and more bacteria are develop resistance ability and that's a big challenge for the i mean for the whole world of the world.
