6:19 am
outside mainland china and shell wang is china the human rights watch and she's joining me now on skype from new york thank you very much indeed for being with us now is not the only company that has fallen foul of china's requests why a tech companies particularly so scared of china. because they have a huge interest in china and they make huge money in china. that seem tough and in terms of the amount of money that they're making and in terms of the their involvement $1.00 would assume therefore that gives them the gives china tremendous leverage but when you're talking about social media companies one would have thought that that leverage is something they want to avoid why is that these companies still are determined to work in china even though they know they're probably going to get under pressure from the chinese government. that's a good question because companies like apple i mean they are their reputation is tarnished because said they have removed hundreds of b.p.
6:20 am
and. when china requested it and they have removed. and other things that the chinese come to request to get and but i think the thing is that to just a profit to is huge and they just want to make the money even though you know they are being chips ties to for. him to take chinese government. my understanding is that soon as other tech companies have said that it was taking this action because it was complying with local laws are we clear about what these local laws are supposed to be i have no idea i think you know the letter you mention to the congress to senator so what are they asking and what laws are they are it's very interesting because i mean what chinese law didn't compare was who to censor people outside of china also the chinese constitution guaranteed the freedom of speech and there's no law in saying that to you know people can to commemorate to the
6:21 am
tiananmen massacre so we don't know what that are and they're still needs to be you know clear and transparent about this how concerned are people in china about this decision that the fact that one would assume that chinese people expect to be in some way curtailed in the level of free speech that they have in china but when it comes to curtailing the free speech and closing accounts of people outside of china that's a different thing what is the concern in china there. i don't think chinese people are discussing that i don't at least not on my social media feet so this is not i mean they expect that and this is something that you know meeting of chinese people joining international games me up about something that to people i know that they can't talk about so i think the environment to the. environment where the internet trading is just so bad that i don't think the c.s.a. even something to be discussed right now determining the chinese. forgive me for interrupting you but it's an interesting point because the chinese government gives the impression of being able to have to have as we mentioned before tremendous
6:22 am
leverage over social media companies and yet it's actually not that success for certainly not as successful as it would like to be in terms of suppressing comment on the web because of course when the coronavirus began in i would certainly want it to happened in a whole big that was all over social media and way boeing and we shot in china and it did take the government quite a long time to be able to clamp down on that so there is an element of at least slowness when it comes to the guy government the chinese government's way of dealing with this isnt it. yes i mean back to it you have to think that the current virus was affecting regular people several 1000000 people hundreds of people it's life affected because the governments cover up but i think the team maybe she's different it was that she did you know what's happened at 30 years ago it's not affecting people's life right now so i think the concerns for so such not deceive you know it's good to be journalists much less stand in coronavirus i spent some
6:23 am
time in beijing last year doing some reporting and people there were telling me quietly that actually chinese people were quite adept to managing to get round a lot of the legislation and the rules that the chinese government put in place do you think that this is going to have a significant effect on the way that chinese people continue to discuss. subjects like tenements where for example i mean the chinese laws and cyber security last night sorry i didn't follow them i apologize i was just saying that people were telling me that the chinese people have had years of experience in managing to discuss difficult issues or issues that they thought would be suppressed by the beijing government and yet they've been able to do it for a great number of years is this latest move on zune going to have a significant impact on the way that subjects like gentleman square for example are
6:24 am
discussed within china. i think you know what have impacted because you know where literally banned chinese people join international meetings you know the chinese government doesn't approve but to you know i think the situation has again become worse in a word is so i mean eventually you know the population they really wanted to jump over of the great firewall and to know the you know stance of censored by the chinese government they can do but i think the majority of people i think you know they are. it's not something that is there any concern that very much and the situation is getting worse and worse and probably it's getting harder for them to jump over the wall when we appreciate your time thank you very much to cheer one from a human rights watch thank you for having me. brazil's government is being accused of trying to cover up police violence after excluding complains from its annual human rights report it follows a wave of protests against police brutality and racism government critics say

6:26 am
a minute of silence in the room these constitutional court for the late president and currencies are. government announced his death on tuesday that left the question of who takes over. the constitution says the speaker of the national assembly should then become an interim leader of course of. course there is no need for an interim president as the newly elected president can start his term a day after being sworn in according to article one of the constitution for this reason the court has decided that it is right for president elect and they should be here to take the oath as soon as possible. every day was announced the winner of elections held last month which were marred by reports of violence in irregularities he was due to take over from currencies or in august when currencies a good rule burundi for 15 years his rule started peacefully but ended with
6:27 am
widespread reports of political killings and torture. 5 years ago there were weeks of protests when he announced his decision to run for a 3rd term. political opposition said it was against the constitution many of them along with activists and journalists since fled into exile. now nobody openly criticizes the government on the street level but it doesn't know the president has worked hard and now we've got his replacement every. time we trust to work for brilliance and. the government said in currencies a died of a heart attack many suspect he died of covert 19. he had no policies to slow the spread of the virus. he told burundians that god would protect them from it
6:28 am
thousands gathered it election rallies last month after recent death ministers met on thursday to discuss what happens next they said it was the constitutional court to decide. and it's the same court that 5 years ago was forced by own currencies are to rule that he could run for the 3rd term according to one of its judges and fled into exile rights groups say none of these institutions function independently after 15 years of an currencies rule he may be gone through in the future is still fragile malcolm webb al-jazeera a group of international scientists in cambodia are working on the 1st clinical trial of a universal vaccine against mosquito borne viruses saliva could be the key to stopping the next epidemic reports this small they suck your blood and their bites today's the saliva from these mosquitoes could help save lives
6:29 am
scientists are dissecting them at this lab just outside cambodia's capital and they're extracting this through lines are made of protein in an attempt to create one vaccination against all mosquitoes borne diseases but. we have incubate the mosquito gland if we see a yellow color it means that the patient has developed antibodies against the protein in this alive very gland. only existing vaccines inject a small dose of the pathogen like malaria is an antidote but this type of vaccine is unique enough to uses the carrier in this case in the ski toe to train our immune system to recognize proteins in the mosquito saliva and then respond by weakening or even preventing the infection but mostly talk by each then only inject the divided states and other pathogens but also they inject certain level herbs and old routinely left the bacteria and viruses also on into the human body so this
6:30 am
study has been working on. finding those proteins that are going to say you care about is a predator and using that one as a vaccine and it and this trial it appears that it induces strong immune response has been very little side effect which is certainly encouraging hundreds of thousands of people die every year from mosquito borne diseases and more than half the world's population lives in areas where one type of species transmits multiple diseases including the cat and meaning only one type of vaccination would be needed to protect us from mosquitoes one of the most dangerous insects in the world and scientists believe that they are getting closer to finding a way to prevent the next epidemic saddle height at al-jazeera. this is all just over these at the top stories brazil now has the 2nd highest number of coronavirus deaths worldwide the health minister reported more than
