joshua warren appears in court accused of organizing an illegal protest last year. so iran is now admitting last thursday far that it said nuclear facility cause significant damage its atomic energy organization says the damage could slow development of centrifuges used to enrich uranium to iran says it's planning to update the facility with more advanced equipment sampras ravi has more. what exactly happened at the natanz nuclear facility last week it's a question people in iran and around the world have been asking since a fire was reported at iran's main uranium enrichment facility on thursday a fire incident like this at the centerpiece of the country's nuclear program is easily a cause for global concern but iranian leaders downplay the incident latest satellite
imagery however seems to show the scale of the damage whatever the cause is bigger than initial reports seemed to suggest on sunday the spokesman of the atomic energy organization of iran confirmed the seriousness of the matter speaking to state news he said enrichment activities continue but the damage was significant enough to slow some work at the facility this incident may create delays in the medium term plan for the development and production of advanced machines god willing we will compensate in such a way that the capacities at the site will be greater than before the natanz nuclear plant has been the target of cyber attacks in the past at the time iran blamed various western nations and israel iranian investigators say they know what caused the latest incident but cannot release details due to security concerns but military leaders have promised to retaliate if sabotage is confirmed. the incident at natanz happened just days after another explosion at a military base where iran develops missiles on june 26th
a gas tank explosion at the parchin military complex northeast of the capital caused a fireball so big some to her own residents could see it from their homes on june 30th a fire and explosion at a medical clinic in north to her own killed 19 people. on saturday a fire broke out at a power station in the western city of laws causing partial outages on the same day a chlorine gas leak at a petrochemical plant on the gulf coast injured 70 people these were likely just industrial accidents perhaps triggered by rising summer temperatures but the fire at the natanz nuclear complex happened in the backdrop of serious incidents that have rattled the country in recent weeks. well let's head now from trita parsi who's executive vice president of the washington's think tank at the quincy institute and he says that other forces may be behind the 5 incidence. it seems like the iranians may actually be coming out and explain the damage that has been
done precisely to take the opportunity to on the one hand signal that they're going to double down on the nuclear program as a result of this but also perhaps to signal the europeans that once again the iranians are showing a degree of restraint in case it turns out that this actually was it an act of sabotage from a hostile power and i think they're building up their cards to put pressure on the europeans that the europeans have to do far more than they have done so far when it comes to keeping the nuclear deal alive there is an accusation that the rouhani government has been far too weak when it comes to protecting the nuclear program standing up to it and pushing back against the pressure that the trumpet instruction is opposing on them so signaling that they're going to replace it with a bigger with more advanced centrifuges is a way of signaling not only the outside world but also iran's would read the government's internal critics all right let's move on to these surging number of covert 1000 cases worldwide with nearly 11 and
a half 1000000 people now confirmed to have the virus india has overtaken russia to become the 3rd worst country in the world it's reporting nearly 25000 new cases every day in australia the border between its 2 most populous states is due to close on tuesday there's been a rise in corona virus cases in victoria prompting the decision to shut the border with new south wales indefinitely and latin america now accounts for about half of all coronavirus related deaths cases that have tripled in just a month with brazil and mexico the worst affected nations let's speak now to elizabeth who's speaking to us from new delhi so that's with the india as i say the 3rd worst hit country globally now how is it on the streets and that the tourist sites how are people responding. hi nicole monuments opened in the country for the 1st time in more than 3 months but looking at the pictures of people flocking to the sites which have opened yet and judging
by the number of people who want to go out who do go out to do non essential things we're not actually expecting big numbers having said that the government is restricting the number of people who can go to these tourist sites to maintain social distancing and of course the reason why people aren't 7 going out to other than other than to work and things like that because the number of cases continue to rise you mentioned that you get and now the single highest day rise the we're seeing those almost every other day and we are the india is the worst affected country now and the states are trying to deal with that situation by increasing testing the government has said that it's now tested more than 10000000 people it's testing about 300000 people across the country every day the worst hit states like maharashtra and delhi are increasing their coded facilities and we also had delhi's chief minister he just held a news conference and despite delhi reaching the 100000 mark of cases he was very
positive because he said that only 5000 or a 3rd of the region's hospital beds of being used that most people are actually recovering at home but he did plead with those who recovered to donate their plasma which is being used to treat current patients right now and come true vaastu india every state must have a different story was nuts and has to respond in a different way. it is a very different picture both with the number of cases and the restrictions and health experts are saying that they're not expecting you know india to have the kind of peak that you saw in other countries european countries and that india is going to have different peaks at different times in the sort of a plateau that all of these peaks they going to add up to a plateau and we're seeing the capital of the southern state of catalyst for instance that have been on the poor in which and carola is the state that's best
handled the outbreak it's gone into a full lockdown for one week. did the same thing 2 weeks ago with the worst affected districts including the major city of chad night starting to ease a few of those restrictions today the northeastern state of us on this in the strict lock down the east and city of course carter from today isn't accepting flights from the worst 6 worst cities for 2 weeks a very much a very mixed picture and states are just trying to figure out you know find that balance between trying to contain the spread of the virus but also not letting the economy collapse because the nation wide lockdown was an economic disaster mainly for the hundreds of millions of daily wage and as and that's why there's no. appetite from the central government to impose anything like that on the nation again with its purchase from india thanks very much but thank you. well as we mentioned the border between the strait is most populous states is closing on
tuesday the new south wales permit says the controversial decision was not taken lightly. we have done mispriced on health advice and especially given the fact that when our nation had those high number of cases back in february and march the vast majority of those prices were from either face travelers or littering home towns what is happening in victoria is very different which is why the pressure to take these cases serious stands we would have taken the stand on this we absolutely had to but time now for mcconaughey to send this update from a straight a's capital of cumbria there have been some people speculating about what happened during quarantine there when people did return from the ses but it has happened as well as restrictions have been easing across the country is charlie has been very successful up until now really to suppress. tain which means that shops have started to reopen public gatherings have returned and this is when we
have seen a huge but in cases in specific pockets of the city of melbourne and the victorian premier daniel andrews gave an update a short time ago and he said that they had been 127 new cases reported in the states over the notch on sunday now that he's like the biggest jump in cases that victoria has seen since the start of this hand to make which is why many different social distancing measures have now returned. dozens of suburbs now returning to strict social distancing measures but also 3000 papal stuff at least 5 days if not more in 9 public housing towers in melbourne that means like leave holmes for the next 5 days until the government makes another decision on
what will happen. intensive care units are filling up in. cases doctors are worried many deaths reported. the reports now from. $1000.00 victims arrive for cremation. on the outskirts of. the recent increase in the number of deaths in the colombian capital has meant cremation service is tripled here in the last couple of weeks. it's a sad situation for the relatives who can't give their loved ones a proper goodbye. people are helpless. entering the hospital 20 days before and never see them again until they meet in the closed coffin. sectors of the economy in june following a strict quarantine seems to be responsible for a sharp rise in hospitalizations. intensive care units are now 80 percent full in
the national government ventilators to increase availability but a lack of trained doctors means not all of them can be used at the same time and now authorities are worried by a sharp surge along caribbean coast soldiers and police in full protective gear or on the streets of the port city of. to enforce quarantine measures. the atlantic a province has registered almost double the number of deaths compared to with only one 3rd of the population. authorities say here people have been more openly flouting social distancing rules holding parties in other gatherings and doctors fear some could be the 1000 related deaths are not being reported. many patients dying at home or arriving at the hospital dead are not being included in the statistics but from feedback from families in clinics it is clear that the
person died of corona virus and we are not reporting it. the sharp upturning pales in comparison with some neighboring countries like brazil it is very worrisome especially since health authorities say we're still weeks away from reaching the peak of infections and the government is excluding the return to stricter measures saying it's time to revive the country's battered economy leaving much of the responsibility in the hands of people wearing face masks and maintaining social distance a lesson that m.p.'s just. nearly 40 people are feared dead in japan after torrential rain triggered floods and mudslides roads and bridges on the island. have been washed away leaving many isolated communities caught off for it is avoided 200000 residents to evacuate their homes and the heavy rains are expected to last until tuesday afternoon. celeb here in algeria we look at how sweden urban

been targeted by beijing but we also encourage the war global community to let our voice being heard in the world once we do have and the possibility we still have to live so well to know that now is the time this time of hong kong and now is the time for home home and keep our momentum so let's go to sarah clarke in hong kong and her on the stand the hearings now finished. it was only mentioned today but the 3 people who are charged this agnes child a juncture woman ivan lamb now these are all full up members even founders of the dipsy star group the pro-democracy group which you mentioned earlier has already disbanded due to the triple risks associated with the newly introduced national security laws out there 3 of them have been charged for taking part in a gathering of what was deemed legal assembly in june last year outside police
headquarters now the charge is that inciting organizing and participating in what was called this illegal assembly at the place headquarters in one child during those anti tradition the government protests last year and i should state that i just how has pleaded guilty to 2 of those charges but the other 2 have pleaded not guilty to those charges now at the hearing has finished now it was a mention only it will be reviewed again in august but these are the 1st charges relating to these 3 with regards to the anti extradition movement last year joshua one agnes child have appeared or served time in jail before that's true of the occupy movement back in 2014 arrested in charge of that on a rival they did not know that they face an uphill battle but they said they will continue to fight for democracy in hong kong and they want to kowtow to beijing and so this comes in the context of the national security law doesn't that does the law in this case and potentially sentance.
well these charges were laid before the national security laws were introduced on july 1st which was last week but it certainly shouldn't affect as a result should affect the sentence and shouldn't affect the hearing but given the high profile nature of joshua one he has long been a political target he was the face of the occupy movement back in 2014 and was also well known internationally he was nominated for a nobel peace prize in 2017 and he also played a key role in convincing the u.s. to pass the hong kong human rights democracy and human rights act i should say he's been disqualified in the past and no doubt as he acknowledged today he expects to be pursued under these national security laws as you mentioned earlier as well knight the boy with a demonstrator it disbanded already last week due to their concern about the risks of facing jail time at nights and one of the key founders of demister he's already left hong kong because he's acknowledged he could face jail for criticizing the introduction of beijing's national security laws in hong kong or that's the story from hong kong circuit thanks a lot. libya's u.n.
