. think about. my life gone through a 360 degree spin i don't have peace i can't sleep you're waiting for someone to come and tell you i was there he was dumped here but 1000 questions were no answers . those questions are being asked by groups of relatives who are scouring the country looking for the 40000 missing for the 1st time we had the chance to put those questions to a man who admits disappearing people he works for the sin a lower cost tell i asked him why they hide their victims the answer he says is simple we're more than that without a body because no crime that's where nobody. it's a common belief in the criminal world it's not completely accurate but the lack of a body doesn't make any murder investigation much harder but that's not the only reason gangsters disappear people it's also meant as a warning to kruger we have
7:28 pm
a saying it's a dodgy business but we play straight so when someone's given a chance to work on his own to sell the product they don't pay their dues we make an example of them and say the other's work rate well the same is going to happen to you oh no but of course many of those who disappear in mexico as simply innocent bystanders that hasn't stopped the gangs from inflicting on thousands of families and then ending punishment afterwards when you when you've seen the results for the family how was that made you feel when they're still looking for their lost their lost relative and you know where they are or you know that at least they're dead but you don't tell them i mean how does that feel remorse. it's something that we know was painful for the families sometimes become an ask us and i know where their relative is but i can't tell them because i'll probably end up just like the victim . maybe you feel better because they could be your friends or people you know but
7:29 pm
there's nothing you can do. now the government has a new plan to find the disappeared it said unlimited funds will be made available to searching the frenzy kissel ities to identify bodies. but that won't take away the motivation for criminal groups and certain authorities to hide their victims well that remains so too will be used desperate search is lost love words john hope of how does it up to the lower. and on sunday we'll have more in our special series on the 6 months of lopez obrador spread and he will look at the steps a mexican government's taking to stem the soaring murder rate 2018 was the most violent year since records began in mexico with $30000.00 killings that's next in our special series. now missouri cortez all the u.s. states only abortion clinic can stay open for now was to have close at midnight the state's health department said the clinic did not pay enough attention to patient

7:31 pm
washington. but how are you concerned he hit the u.s. coast it was disastrous but it could have been worse if what the scientists had not predicted the path of the storm and the point at which it would hit several days before they'd on hurricane sandy very impressive storm the national oceanographic and atmospheric agency noah says this will no longer be the case if bandwidth in space is sold off to 5 g. companies the reason noah says senses on satellites that measure crucial indicators like water vapor being compromised by the signals from 5 g. providers in a shared bandwidth there is genuine concern here that as 5 g. is deployed in it interferes with those atmospheric signals that we're trying to detect with the weather satellites that we will not be able to provide the same quality and reliability a forecast that we have currently but the f.c.c.
7:32 pm
and the 5 g. industry denies they would be any interference and wireless industry representative brad gillen said in a blog post it's an absurd claim with no science behind it he maintained that no as claim relies on the study of a microwave sensor that never went to to use not so insists the scientists well i can tell you that there is many scientists know nasa and outside of the government that have looked at this and also our international colleagues and determined that there is a serious threat here and that the science must be considered or we do risk losing our predictions still 4 major storms that would impact us. the updated senses also improve research into climate change factors a critical study given the unprecedented increase in extreme weather conditions ranging from intense drought to and seasonal storms. but this argument is
7:33 pm
rejected by influential figures in the administration who are climate change skeptics including the president himself officials from the u.s. state department are attempting to bring the 2 sides closer together a unified position is critical as the meeting of world spectrum regulators is due to take place later this year but the scientists are hoping that the conflict will be resolved by an international convention that would deny 5 g. operators access to the same bandwidth as the weather senses. in a month that seen a series of tornadoes strike us states the fear of scientists is that the trumpet ministration may be reluctant to sign any more international agreements and will side with those intent on securing a river news stream from 5 g. providers rather than those attempting to predict the next economically crippling threat for.
