area it's a very very critical situation and it's the same thing further south where as we have seen it's not just the cattle and the crops that are in danger but particularly the animals that live in the tropical forest. or the team is believe in veterinarians travel to the nimby us to reserve forest fires have been raging for weeks. their mission is to try to rescue wild animals which may have been injured. this was the scene the previous night the fire destroyed everything in its path. but a few animals were seized like this 2 day old wild pig whose mother died in the fire. the nature is extraordinary the way the allows these creatures to adapt in the face of danger and stress and find. enormous dildo with burnt eyes a hawk recovering from smoke inhalation along with

animals that have survived but that helicopter is also needed to put out the fires to save human life. the fire remains out of control a thick layer of smoke and ash fills the air making the sun look red. it's too dangerous to stay in the veterinarian star upset that they couldn't save a single animal i mean. i feel impotent because people aren't seen how the amazon is burning how burning alive and no one is doing anything. while much of the world focuses on the fires raging in the brazilian amazon the devastation here in neighboring bolivia is receiving far less attention. even though assistance is desperately needed not just to put out the fires but to regenerate this fragile and diverse eco system so that what has survived will still be able to live here. truly a short while ago we saw

3:50 am
this has become a weekend ritual in parts of hong kong street battles breaking out between anti-government protesters and police. but this was one of the most intense rounds of violence since the protests began almost 3 months ago. the day had started peacefully the police rejected an application from organizers to hold a rally additionally it was just small religious and student groups that defied the ban we need to pray for home sold off and some off time 1st on may be they also have the same idea but the numbers grew throughout the day as people paralyzed some of the city's busiest roads turning them into walkways. by doing so they risked a rest but there was safety in numbers they shouted their familia cries of stand with hong kong and left their mark as they went but it was inevitable that this day
3:51 am
would develop like so many others have in hong kong recently the violence started when some people stopped at the offices of the government which adjoins hong kong's parliament this is a building that they stormed back on the 1st of july so clearly once they came to this building the police were in no mood to muck around no mood to allow them to stay here and throw things at the building so that to get started fairly quickly. the protist does have developed a relatively new and dangerous tactic of throwing petrol bombs along with bricks and other objects on the other side police fired tear gas and deployed water cannons this time laced with dye to try to mock those who had broken the law eventually those demonstrating moved on but the fight wasn't over. the protesters have retreated from the area around the legislative council conflicts but not very far coming to a place close to the headquarters of the hong kong police have blocked this road this intersection here and sit fire to their barricade taking things to
3:52 am
a new level directions were designed to send a clear message to the police and the government far from being afraid they are intensifying they campaign and in doing so the city's crisis is worsening wane hey al jazeera hong kong. well joshua long was among a group of high profile activists arrested by hong kong police on friday he says the risk of prosecution and jail will not stop the protests. yesterday i was arrested with 3 try just including organizing inciting and participating on old assembly schumann's ago i was released from prison as soon later on be arrested again but we still continue our fight and the most important thing is even i didn't phrase the trial soon in the next there was. a person is on our course on free election. brutality and the government must completely withdraw the bill and the
3:53 am
only way out is listening to the wants of people and home callers on the one democracy the short term goal is to withdraw the extradition bill and the long term goal is to have a free election when elected election become true in hong kong which means that hong kong was by a newly elected government and which means that we can be the run rule whole goal which is the old regime be the one man the plate going on hong kong people freedom and our future. a sudanese judges formally charged deposed president tomorrow bashir with corruption in possession of illicit currency a share to help the cause he received $25000000.00 from the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sound money but that he had not used the money for his benefits millions of euros in sudanese pounds were found at the shares residence in april when he was ousted from power and arrested he denies all the charges against him.
3:54 am
you know that all of this is that. we did not supply the money to the bank of sudan because we meant to hide the source and we did so because this was the desire of the prince and i had hoped that this would have been a secret court in order not to show the name of the prince he did not want his name to appear anywhere which is why he sent the money on a private plane with a private on a boy this was his wish not to be known. now from heart. today's court hearing was the 3rd court hearing for sudan's former president on what i hear and it was the 1st time where he gave his statements to the judge and to the court where he said that he did indeed receive $25000000.00 from saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomonic he said that his office manager got a call from saudi arabia's crown prince's office manager and said that there was a special gift coming on board a special played now he said that when the money landed in sudan he did not want to
3:55 am
turn it down because he was worried that he would upset the nation which is according to his words special relations with sudan at the time so accepted the gift but did not use it in a personal capacity now his lawyers are arguing that he should be set free on bail until the next hearing and until he's formally until he's formally convicted but the judge today turned down that that appeal and said that if convicted 4 of the charges of illegal opposition of foreign currency and illegal creating a foreign currency then the former president faces up to 10 years in jail so he will not be allowed bail he also today formally indicted the former president who says that he is not guilty he said that most of the money he used was for personal interests to try to get the country out of the crisis that that it was in during the time which was shortage of flour and shortage of fuel and he said that none of the money went to his personal account and that's if investigations continue that is what is going to be revealed so for the moment it looks like we're going to have to wait for the rest of the testimonies from witnesses from the defense aside from the former president's side after already hearing from from witnesses from the
3:56 am
state prosecutor side and it's going to be a few weeks before we have a final verdict on whether the former president is going to face 10 years in jail or whether he is innocent. turkish president says plans are in place to set up a turkish led operation to secure a safe zone in northeastern syria in the coming weeks meanwhile at least 13 people have been killed and at least 2 dozen injured in an attack in syria's edler province but it's missed brings us more now from hot near the turkey syria border. u.s. led coalition is confirming that it targeted a building to the east of city that it says was connected with a group linked to al qaeda or a training facility in al jazeera sources on the ground we've spoken to sources who confirm that they say that this was a training center for this group connected with al qaida it encourage people from all ages young boys to teenage men to older men to come to training that's why we we have seen video where at least there is clearly one injured child in the video
3:57 am
but that it was the issue with the scent of the all age groups the good it was believed to be this training center for this al qaeda connected group and it's an indication really of the concern not just that turkey has been of the russians have but also that the americans have that in this last rebel held part of syria the northwestern part of syria there are these hard core groups resisting conducting a last stand the taliban has started a new offensive in kunduz one of afghanistan's biggest cities despite ongoing peace talks with the u.s. military reinforcements have been rushed in to prevent the taliban taking control of the city at least 3 civilians have been killed according to local health officials and the government says at least 30 taliban fighters have also been killed or enters arcadian as a former advisor to the afghan peace council he says the taliban is trying to show
3:58 am
strength in the hope they can get more out of those negotiations. taliban would like to give 2 important signals to the united state. my analysis shows that the cut the negotiation for the time biggest are going very well for example the taliban like to cancel the strategic partnership between afghanistan and the united states maybe the united states includes are the envoy who will accept that but with maybe with different conditions it's not happening for the time being sickened in the south of afghanistan i think there's some terrorism or very number of die each soldier are just raising their heads. would like to give a signal to the united states and also to other international community that they have to be crippling other tourism that's raising from day to day also internally the the taliban leadership would like to emphasize on the. odds and boy
3:59 am
