a rare eclipse. it's just been i am in hong kong where a massive cleanup operation has begun the day off the hundreds of protesters stormed the city's legislature monday's violence left day bodies scattered all over the building police used tear gas to clear the area off to demonstrate just smashed windows and splashed graffiti on its rules although still the day the government held ceremonies to mark 22 years since the end of british rule and hundreds of thousands joined a peaceful march where hong kong's leader carried them condemn the actions of protesters that stormed the legislative council on monday evening. extreme use soft violence and vandalism by protesters who stormed into the legislative council building over a period of time so this is something that we should seriously come down because
6:02 am
nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it hong kong's police chief justify the temporary treat with which some say create the gap for protesters to storm the building we found that there was some protest tampering with the electricity poppy i only find that some of the lights have gone out and in fear of a total dock out that the protester while charging someone turned off the like i'm afraid that there will be people stepping people there were already a toxic powder. attack on my office in the afternoon so without knowing whether this is another toxic powder tech we have no other choice
6:03 am
but to temporarily retreat from that cold. well katrina is standing by for us in beijing with the latest reaction out of china we'll also be live in hong kong with our correspondent sara clark but 1st when hate takes a look back at how monday's events unfolded. after another day of protests in hong kong police ran out of patience with tear gas and battens they moved in to clear the area around the legislative council hong kong's parliament it's become the focal point of anti-government rallies over the past 3 weeks because protesters believe it's now largely controlled by mainland china this time they had little choice but to flee and quickly disappeared into the nights. the catalyst for the police action was a decision by the protesters to seize control of the legislative council after hours of smashing windows and doors they went inside vandalizing the building as
6:04 am
they went after several protests over the past 3 weeks some of them turning violent in clashes between protesters and police this group was able to force its way into the debating chamber in the legislative council facing very little resistance along the way they say they had no choice but to escalate the situation after becoming frustrated that the government wasn't listening to them and i think for many many young people. they didn't expect that it took so long for the government. to respond there are rallies every year on july the 1st which is the day 22 years ago that hong kong was handed back to china by great britain but there were much larger numbers this year because of a proposed extradition law it would allow suspects in criminal cases to be sent to mainland china to face trial in the justice system that critics say is deeply flawed. the bill has been suspended but opponents want it scrapped altogether and
6:05 am
the resignation of hong kong's chief executive who spoke earlier. monday at a ceremony to mark the anniversary. of the instant that happened in recent months has led to control the sea and disputes between the public and the government this has made me fully realize that i as a politician i have to remind myself all the time the need to cross a public event accurately. the system agreed between great britain and china 22 years ago was one country 2 systems for 50 years but protesters believe that deal is being pushed aside by kerry lamb and 2 government who they say are increasingly being dictated to by beijing. soon after police moved into the latest rally it was over the streets in the legislative council and their defiance dispersed but they left their mark on what's supposed to be the center of power in hong kong there will no doubt be repercussions but they're vowing to continue a fight that they say has become about much more than
6:06 am
a proposed law it's about the future of the city wayne hay al jazeera hong kong well let's go live now to sarah clarke in hong kong sara so the cleanup operations been going on now for some time just bring us up to date with what's been happening there. the clean up has been going on for hours now since before daylight and we've got piles and piles of rubbish scattered around the entire of the lips of council building or government headquarters here in central hong kong and now it's policy but everything from hundreds if not thousands of umbrella as well as all the devices that were used to store and smash through this floss we're talking saw in the street signs we're talking fences lights fences were dismantled around this area some of those were blockades or barricades that were used in the protests yesterday but others were fences that actually had screwdrivers and they are they detach that screwdrivers or they touch those those fences they've used those 1 then to smash through here so those piles of rubbish are still here we've had trucks removing them but it's going to take
6:07 am
some time for all of this rubbish to be cleared and we're just outside inside there's also a massive area that's been trashed including inside the council chamber which is where the lawmakers are restricted or allowed to go in but not the public in the problem of the protesters yet so they've got access to i should also start now that the area where we were inside before we've now been pushed out and that area is now a bank. cordoned off and police have cooled this area a crime zone simply because kerry land wants to pursue the prosecution of those protesters who were involved in yesterday's storming of monday's storming of hong kong's parliament and sara how is the media there in hong kong been looking at last night's events and whether the protests go from here as well. well as you'd imagine it's on the front page of every newspaper here we've got this fund this is the the oriental daily news it's a private it's obviously got the front page showing there's a protest of storming into the china but it's the government will never be the same
6:08 am
we've got this one which is apple direly it's pretty considerable product of a critic newspaper front it's got here protesters. with some amazing shots showing the turnaround of events yesterday and i should also say other developing news the executive council which is the hong kong cabinet it's making for the 1st time in some weeks kerry lamb is hosting that she's cancelled media session but she is hosting that have it meeting we've also been talking to some of the pro-democracy lawmakers have been coming in to the let's of council they've been expressing their discontent with a concern about what happened yesterday that could be seen as a negative for the pro democratic movement or to sort of talk in hong kong so thank you let's talk to katrina you now and she's in the chinese capital beijing katrina so what's been the reaction there in beijing to events in hong kong as the chinese government has taken the action do you think. well so far here in beijing it's been very quiet we haven't heard an official
6:09 am
response from beijing we are still waiting on that but we can assume that the chinese censorship agency hit here has been on overdrive from what we've seen we haven't seen any poorest on social media about these riots is very little recent online and this is because the chinese government is very good to sort of take down any posts that they think would stir discontent the events of last night are going to cause very some very uncomfortable questions for the chinese government and here they've been at pains to convince the people of the mainland that hong kong people love the fact that they're now returned to the motherland they returned to china and we've had some responses there from state media although we haven't seen anything in terms of social media so so far what we've seen falls into 2 categories i'm going to show you some headlines from some to state media newspapers quite different to what we would have seen in hong kong we've got here for the global times and we'll have china daily no pictures of protest instead we've got pictures
6:10 am
over celebrations in hong kong you've got another thing if people are saying i love hong kong and and really are having a good time here all yesterday so according to state media at least a decent papers nothing happened it was all happy there was a big celebration but of course we did see from the global times online not on the front page but online and editorial which really struck back at the protestors and this really sort of reflects what the chinese government are going to probably try to do when they do respond to this protest which is to discredit those who are who are involved let me just read a few lines of that he mentioned that these were nothing short of of mobs and they were only acting out of blind arrogance and rage with a complete disregard for law and very interestingly this line he says those who love the city must be sad and frustrated so we're seeing a real. attempts at least by state media to divide the people of hong kong and to
6:11 am
put the events of last night really as the behavior of radicals the behavior of some bad eggs which really have nothing to do with how the people here in hong kong the mainstream people who call feel at least that's the that's the message they're trying to get across here all right to katrina you were there in beijing katrina thank you now u.s. president donald trump says iran is playing with fire that solve the un's nuclear watchdog confirmed that iran is stockpiling more enriched uranium than allowed by the 25th the nuclear deal washington warned it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons and that it will continue its maximum pressure campaign until 10 iran changes course is what trump told reporters at the white house. they know what they're doing you know what they're playing with and i think they're playing with fire so no message to iran whatsoever when earlier rounds foreign ministers said tehran does have the right to exceed the limit because the 2050 nuclear deal has not been upheld. as i've been informed iran has exceeded the 300 kilogram limit
6:12 am
to enrich uranium we had previously announced they simply were transparent in saying what we are going to do we considered a tower right reserved in the nuclear. power your coffee and. actions by the europeans have not been enough so we will move ahead with our plan we are in the process of doing our 1st phase of action increasing our stockpile of enriched uranium as well as our heavy water reserves we have already announced the 2nd phase which would be surpassing the rhenium enrichment limit of 3.6 percent this will be our next step. john hendren has more now from washington d.c. . president donald trump says iran is playing with fire that is after iran announced that it is violating the 2015 nuclear agreement the multi-national agreement in which it set levels at which it could store stockpiles of uranium
6:13 am
before that happened the white house put out a statement saying in part maximum pressure on the iranian regime will continue until its leaders alter their course of action the regime must end its nuclear ambitions and its malign behavior but responses have also been pouring in through the 280 character format of twitter from the administration we have secretary mike pompei oh the u.s. secretary of state saying the world's top sponsor of terrorism can never be allowed to enrich uranium at any level john bolton the national security adviser for the u.s. says there is no reason for iran to increase its enrichment unless it is part of an effort to reduce the breakout time to produce nuclear weapons there have also been responses from the democratic presidential candidates bernie sanders says he's pushed us to the brink of war with iran and kept us in the horrific saudi led war in yemen we need real diplomacy any clothes are a centrist candidate says now iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than before trump took office this did not need to happen and we
6:14 am
should negotiate back into the agreement that's the 2015 nuclear agreement the us has bailed out of in joe biden the former vice president and leading candidate in the democratic presidential race says trump's iran policy has alienated us from our allies and taken us to the brink of another war in the middle east everything this president does is backwards this could end in a number of different ways with an agreement possibly between the u.s. and iran with a military conflict like the one that only days ago president trump said he was within 10 minutes of ordering or we could have the kind of prolonged standoff that we have right now. time for a short break here and al-jazeera when we come back foreign observers give a thumbs down to a crucial election that took place in albania over the weekend and we'll tell you about a foreign invader that's choking nigeria's rivers and waterways more of that stands .
6:15 am
hello apparent obstructive dome of warm air is the plains of the united states and around the top we've had this very active sunday storm season the size of the cloud that's covering the whole state south dakota had that quite slow moving amazing tornado you might see on social media however the whole lot sort of collapsing in the big showers are going to be a bit further south so chicago right get some done in kansas the 2 back in the brass coast slightly less warm than in minneapolis i will be paying about where it should be still warm the east coast up into the thirty's and it stays there and quite humid thing during when september dropped a little bit in florida and the west coast well has been nice and quiet still showers on the canadian border but only 19 in the sunshine in san francisco so that's active slow moving summer weather and we've had an awful lot of weather
6:16 am
coming from the sahara right the way through the caribbean bringing dust as far as cuba even florida that is probably cutoff night light showers are the most not many showers building in cuba largely because you got rather more action down in places like costa rica or on the pacific coast of mexico was actually a tropical cyclone over mexico itself tremendous hail as you've probably seen again but big showers continue. capturing a moment in time. snapshots of out alive. other stories. providing the glimpse into someone else's work. inspiring documentaries from impassioned filmmakers and the front lines i feel like i know what i have to prove. witness on
6:17 am
al-jazeera. welcome back at home out of the top stories here on the al-jazeera clean up crews are at work outside of hong kong let's go to counsel after the storm by protesters on monday police have to use tear gas to clear the area of violence following a peaceful protest earlier on the day of the terror to mark 22 years since the 100 china. hong kong's beijing but chief executive condemned protesters of being quote extremely violent she said it's heartbreaking to see so many young demonstrators break the law and once again rejected calls to resign. president donald trump says

6:19 am
a 3 story building and the building collapsed fully half toward doesn't only kind of missiles they are owned by the u.a.e. we said this before the jets that have attacked tripoli are the same jets that attacked ready and after have to us forces were defeated iraq's prime minister. has ordered the country's powerful paramilitary groups to be integrated into the armed forces they've been ordered to comply with the orders by the end of the month the prime minister says offices and checkpoints operated by militia groups must be shut down apparently most of iraq's paramilitary groups are believed to be backed by iran. funeral processions have been taking place throughout the 11 people were killed during mass protests on sunday hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets demanding an immediate hundreds of power to a civilian led government the military joins us says security forces responded after being attacked by protesters the main opposition coalition is calling for an independent inquiry. and we made it clear to the ethiopian african mediation that
6:20 am
there should be a time limit for the mediation process and it should not go on forever the struggle of the sudanese people will continue with its commitment to its peaceful methods until the objectives of the revolution are achieving are peaceful tools including negotiation will continue until the objectives of the revolution are. on the u.n. says those responsible for killing protesters must be held accountable. we've seen what is going on in khartoum we're following those events very closely. it's very important that there be accountability for the loss of life that we've seen over the last day any loss of life by protesters the civilians including those i mention from yesterday we continue to call for restraint by all sides and urge and resumption of the political talks now fishermen in nigeria are worried about the impact of foreign plant is having on their trade the water hyacinth native to
6:21 am
the amazon basin of south america started appearing in nigeria in the ninety's when it since spread to cover many rivers preventing aquatic life when getting much needed sunlight causing problems for those who lie on water transport managers reports. on land hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks clog the streets of lagos. and for those people who have increasingly turned to the water for transport an invasive weed is making life difficult there. because of how enormous it is is the governments just will kill more machines to show that we're able to. properly the spread of water hyacinth is heading inland covering small streams and rivers at least $26.00 out of nigeria's $36.00 states affected it is accelerating the buildup of silt at the bottom of rivers and choking about aquatic plants by blocking sunlight and oxygen. what to herself was 1st noticed
6:22 am
in nigeria in the early 1990 s. since then the invasive plant has disrupted not only transportation but also hydroelectric generation and fishing in several regions efforts to control it have so far field. you mean a model who's been a fisherman all his life says the job is now getting harder. to stop i like our band presence of the plants makes it difficult to part of a boat and cast your net the catch is decreasing in fact the water is becoming shallow. but what you see is the solutions others see an opportunity they have as the plant to create an artwork out of it for sale but importantly scientists say there is a lot of potential of water hyacinth including electricity generation. scientists like me. so the what i think and the long process of my research using the
6:23 am
educational metal. plants what i sing it in water and this is missing dislodged from new and we now use it for they or their research work innocently and years into production of bounty is something that might prove beneficial to nigeria as it struggles to generate electricity to power its factories and homes. back on the river. the weed will just disappear so the fish can return in numbers how many trees. lagos international observers of albania as local elections say they were held with little regard for the interests of the electorate the main opposition parties boycotted sunday's poll about claims of corruption as it was john psaropoulos reports now from skoda in albania. the mayor of chicago is tallying voter turnout in sunday's local election it is pitifully low which is good news for the incumbent then me because
6:24 am
the democratic party she represents boycotted this election so she wasn't a candid it people. it is and this is wonderful this is not political this is being a citizen so because of that i think that it is there and because of what they feel . the democratic party accuses the socialist government of corruption it is demanding the resignation of prime minister and the general election president who is sympathetic to the opposition claims declared the local elections cancelled and rescheduled them for october to give the parties a cooling off period but the government under held them anyway. has been a democratic party stronghold since the fall of communism in 1998 but on sunday a socialist party candidate stood here unopposed according to the municipal tally fewer than 7 percent of registered voters turned out to vote and many of those
6:25 am
apparently in protest. and some of those are workers in state services who told me they were ordered to vote in resulting political disagreements international monitors blame the 2 main parties this is 30 years of june local elections were held with little regard for the interests of the electorate in the. climate the political standoff and polarize ation 30 years did not have a meaningful choice between political options. in february the democratic party opposition walked out of parliament this polarization has left voters confused and disillusioned. the politics of the last years is so very very confused you know for all the people and the people are so so tight honestly we need an opposition even if it's maybe bad without any organization or anything like
6:26 am
that. a demi's term officially ends in august since she doesn't recognise this election as legal she is refusing to give up hope post as a 23 other opposition mayors prime minister rama has invited the opposition to talks unless the political parties reach agreement it will be up to rome whether to initiate legal proceedings that will put a demi and the other opposition mayors in jail jumpsuit al-jazeera. e.u. leaders will meet for a 3rd time on tuesday after failing to pick a new president despite more than 20 hours of negotiations they're divided over who should succeed. the european commission president eastern european countries object to fans timon's a dutch socialist politician was the backing of germany spain and france the french president emanuel macro has criticized the blair. took office even if i believe in the long term we must draw all the consequences of such a failure our credibility is deeply damaged by these long late innings that lead to
6:27 am
nothing we give an image if you will but that's not serious. but german foreign minister hi come on as warm the arrest of a german ship's captain in its could lead to considerable aggravation and call for her immediate release counterattack she has appeared before a sicilian court after being detained on saturday when she illegally docked a vessel on the island of lampedusa it was carrying dozens of migrants 31 year old has been accused of deliberately ramming the sea with 3 rescue ship into a police boat that was trying to stop them from the port. now on tuesday a dramatic total solar eclipse will darken the skies over south america they clips will travel across parts of china. in a journey lasting about 6 minutes a lot of america and it's on the sea and human travel to get on in chile the best place to see the rare event. the transparent skies of northern chile especially the cold kimble region have turned this into the world's ass drawn in the capital. but
6:28 am
scientists aren't the only ones rushing to witness a cosmic event that is drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors here to see a total solar eclipse people say well what's the question without a why do you want to travel so far to see you. after you see the eclipse you will know that this will be the american couples 16th we've been chasing solar eclipses the world over in a full solar eclipse the position of the moon appears to fully cover the sun turning day into night it occurs somewhere on our planet roughly every 18 months but they're all different depending on the location the position of the sun and the clarity of the sky and maybe this fringe family just arrived from paris and says they expect this their 5th eclipse to be the best one yet yes it's an expensive hobby but once you see full eclipse. you get addicted actually you want to see the
6:29 am
next one. accommodation in the atacama regions have been. sold out for more than 6 months this is like a get up population 4000 where almost everybody is renting a room or their home or even just a little piece of land where people visitors can camp out and the reason is that this remote place has some of the best views of the stars of anywhere in the world and which according to astronomers will also give you some of the best deals although the eclipse. but for astronomers and physicists who also camped out here it's an opportunity to see elusive stars gather data or demonstrate this theory of relativity through these telescopes so you will go to the better if you are able to see weak stars during a total eclipse we will be able to determine if the light is displaced and and demonstrate once again on stein's general theory of relativity and they said it's
6:30 am
wonderful it's one sharon and burn our book cults have less ambitious expectations so i'm hoping to see stars in the daytime. if the weather cooperates as meteorologists predict she will more than likely get her wish to see in human light get that chilly. tartuffe a quick check of the headlines here and al-jazeera cleanup crews are at work outside of hong kong's legislative council after it was stormed by protesters on monday police had to use tear gas to clear the area the violence followed the peaceful protests earlier on today the town to mark 22 years since the 100 to china hong kong leader caroline condemned the actions of protest as that storm the legislative council on monday evening. extreme violence and vandalism by protesters who stormed into the legislative council building. over
6:31 am
a period of time so this is something that we should seriously come down because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope. you will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it yes president donald trump says iran is playing with fire after the un's nuclear watchdog confirmed the term on a stockpiling more enriched uranium than allowed by the 2050 nuclear deal washington warned that it will never allow iran to develop nuclear weapons that it will continue its maximum pressure campaign until to run changes course here's what trump told reporters at the white house. to iran they know what they're doing you know with the airplane with him i think they're playing with fire so to iran whatsoever. who the rebels in yemen's say they have launched another attack on an
