ah hello, i'm kerry johnston. this is denise our live from dough. how we're coming up in the next 60 minutes off to week of wildflowers in the south, parts of northern europe were told to brace for record high temperatures. it's that question about life and death and not just want to let will south but also for citizens. and you get a plane occurring. arms from serbia crushes in greece, killing 8 in sparking and investigation. protest as are back on the streets of saddam to demand, to return to civilian rule. and why promises of safety means people cannot return to this afghan to his top. and it's false american. fred curly is officially the worlds fastest man, curly wedding. the men's want under meets his title in the world championships. as us runners claim a metal cleans,
6:02 pm
ah, a summer heat wave is sweeping parts of europe, sparking wildfires and contributing to hundreds of heat related death in southern spain. at least 3000 people had to flee their homes. as a wildfire burned out of control in a mountain range, or several large fires burning in french pine forests, including this one in bordeaux. the hot gusty conditions are making it harder for cruise to contain it. the number of villages and holiday homes have been evacuate on the greek island of crete, when 100 firefighters are trying to extinguish those flames. meanwhile, in the u. k. health authorities urging people to take precautions as forecast as protect records temperatures this week. and im, barber reports now from london in parts of southern europe like here in spain, forest fires and nothing new, but could conditions experienced in the south soon be the normal swear. here in
6:03 pm
britain, the government's been holding emergency meetings and for the 1st time a red warning has been issued for the heat rather than floods or winds. people are being warned as a 50 percent chance of temperatures reaching 40 celsius more than one degree above the all time record. a studies found heat waves across europe have increased $3.00 to $4.00 times faster than in the rest of the northern mid latitudes, including north america. and much of that is driven by changes to atmospheric circulation, known as the jet stream. whether or not that's directly due to human activity, scientists say our continued use of fossil fuels means we're already seeing what was previously predicted for 2050. we're still increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which means global temperatures are increasing. and this means that this is probably something that will be around speak hall, heat life in 3 decades to come. the one thing might also be to change that compensation, that actually it's not a, it's a question about life and death and not for the global south,
6:04 pm
but also far citizens in the u. k. and despite news reports concentrating on, seems like this, you can helpful 30 is a warning, the heat can be deadly, even for healthy people. climate change has been driving extreme temperatures for decades, and the heat is killing more and more people here in england in the summer of 2020 more than 2 and a half 1000 excess decks were attributed to heat waves, and they've only become more intense and more frequent since then, the british red cross predicts that the annual heat waves death toll could have tripled by the middle of this century. much of europe, the increase in heat waves poses urgent questions about how society adapts from education to working patterns, to transport and housing. some believe it's high time we faced up to a hot future. well, nadeem bother joins us now from south london and then that will how is the government in the u. k. coping with this, especially when you consider its own ready, overstretched health service. that's
6:05 pm
right. kerry, they're saying that they are taking things seriously. while trying not to panic. people really is the underlying message. if you like, there was a, an emergency meeting of cabinets and other senior officials on saturday. and boys, johnson, the prime minister, wasn't there. his deputy dominic rob has been insisting that they are putting out common sense or advice to the public. i stay hydrated. wear sunscreen, tried her, her not to exercise or do anything too strenuous, particularly on monday and tuesday. because while on sunday temperatures in the u. k are not expected to go much above 30 celsius. there's a 50 percent chance they could go above 40 on monday or tuesday. we've never seen that in the u. k. hence, those are those warnings. now the government says that it's boosting ambulance services in terms of the numbers of coal handlers and asking hospitals to increase
6:06 pm
their capacity to take patience in. they are really under pressure already. hartley, because of her covert her meaning staff shortages, but a long history of problems with ambulance services in the u. k. and waiting times there, urging people only to use the emergency services is really necessary or now, and we've heard from some senior voices within the national health service that they're worried that simply things like air conditioning and fans are not sufficient in hospitals and in doctors, practices said it advising people firstly to check on their neighbors, particularly if they're elderly or vulnerable. but warning people that those temperatures around 40 celsius are not what we're used to. they're not what people are enjoying here in this park. behind me. there's something to really take seriously and that they can have a serious health impact and even be deadly. if you consider yourself healthy, don't be complacent and adding women's temperatures. how is this impacting k
6:07 pm
infrastructure transport? for example? well the year network rail via an company that turn operates the infrastructure and transport for london, which is responsible for much of the public transport here in the capital city are wanting people to expect delays, even cancellations, and only to make really essential journeys. but of course, millions of people particularly here in london, do rely on public transport to get to work. now there's no maximum temperature or beyond which people can be expected to work here in the u. k. there is a minimum not a maximum. the a government saying that you are relying on employers to show flexibility with their workforce is we'll see how well that works in the next few days. and then on education there, stressing that their priorities to keep children in school. and they're saying they're issuing guidance, trying to help schools to stay open safely. that's
6:08 pm
a big challenge as well, given those temperatures and, and of course, how play is built into the school day for younger children. so really unknown our circumstances here in the u. k. and the meat, erotic meteorological office, is stressing their message that these heat ways are getting more frequent than the direct result of human induced climate change. we need to start getting used to them and to prepare better in terms of things like housing, in terms of transport, the way we live our day, we structure the working day and so on. it's going to be a big change. okay, nadine barber, i live in london. thank you very much indeed. well, little later in the program, we'll be talking about what the countries may have to do to live with high temperatures in the future. our cargo plane carrying weapons has crashed in the northern grease killing, or 8 crew members. greek or authorities said was traveling from serbia to
6:09 pm
bangladesh via jordan. but nearly a 3rd of the way into the flights the air craft made a sharp you turn before crushing it near the greek city of karbala. specialist greek army investigators are now on site to determine whether any dangerous materials are left in the wreckage samples. robbie reports, eye witnesses describe a plane on fire lighting up the night sky. the crash of an ant enough cargo plane, tearing through an open field. there was put their name to say a band was to speak to them as i wonder how it didn't fall in our houses because it came from over there. it was full of smoke. it had a noise i can describe and went over the mountain. it passed a mountain and turned and crashed into the fields. there were flames. we were scared. a lot of cars came, but they could not approach because there were continuous explosions. look what are the scale of devastation at 1st confusing people who saw the plane come down. level men now,
6:10 pm
now cut the vein of what we see something bright coming down from the direction of the castle, but we thought it was lighted after death. we said fire fire, what is it? is it a plane? what is it? by the time we understood what it was, it has fallen to the ground. we were terrified or we also had children here coming . we're screaming, shouting, local residents and 1st responders describe ongoing explosions following the crash door bure ship or lee lee, your or yourself is crashed to the ground and develop into a large fire with many continuous exposure audio. greek media reports hazardous materials were on board including explosives. this is of the senior, the air measurements at the moment have not shown anything, but nonetheless, instability of the field was observed and other words, intense, smoke and heat, as well as a white substance that we do not recognize. so a special armed forces team has to inform us of what it is and whether we can enter
6:11 pm
the field or the flight was operated by meridian or ukraine based cargo carrier. it originated in serbia, the country's defense ministry confirming the cargo of union dues need you to the claim was carrying 11 half tons of products of our arms trade for the end buyer in bangladesh. the buyer was the bank, the dash ministry of defense as a fully permitted end user and by the flight route was nice. with technical landings in man read met about and was planned to land in dhaka as the final destination moments before the plane went down. the pilot radioed about a problem with one of the engines requesting an emergency landing, but unable to make it to the nearest airport. the journey ending in a field in northern greece was in basra, v o to 0. while david ross in the 1st professor and senior military fellow, the national defense university, he says examining this, the difficult because of explosives in the wreckage 11 and a half tons sounds like
6:12 pm
a lot it's. it's not a whole lot for our shipments. the reason why it was flown rather than sent by sea is because it's not big enough for a ship. you know, obviously if you're shipping weapons, you have to have a dedicated ship just for that. it's a problem when you have explosives, because when the plane crashes, you have to worry about the explosives cooking off afterwards. so the damage always looks worse because people don't go and put out the fire. they have to sit back, let the fire burn itself out and you know, it's, it's always unpleasant. it's always nasty when a plane crashes, but this is particularly unpleasant because of that. they also, there also reports that some of the rounds were mortar elimination rounds, which are not normal. you know, last explosives, they are, they tend to be metalized. finally fragmented metal, which are extremely klamath falls. so again, that would create some problems for firefighters and rescuers. ukraine is among the
6:13 pm
world air leaders in air cargo services they produce or any did until the russians to try the factory. you know, wide body aircraft, nato countries, charter aircraft from the ukranian firms. quite frequently they, they are among the world leaders. so this isn't some shady fly by night. it's an established, well accepted practice. although you know, they're not subject some of the scrutiny that a western country would be. they're not part of any european institutions, but they are a known quantity. the initial report said, mortars and mines, and i think they met mortar rounds. i know that there's trace elements of, you know, illuminating radioactive material. sometimes in mortar sites that you could view at night, same as you get in a wristwatch. if there's any kind of toxic substances, the greek government probably consolidates all that under their own. ringback or energy authority, and i think it makes sense to at least scan it because low level radiation is use not an munitions, but in some military equipment. what on their chattering is lifeless indica tongue,
6:14 pm
aside from the tragedy of those killed in the crash, once more, all the authorities saying about the across cargo were we spoke to the interest service. public relation off is essentially a media wing of the defense ministry. and the combined defense forces now they didn't want to add anything more than there were defend out a small state men in bangla, which essentially said that worse. and that cargo was destined for bangladesh in consisted of mortar shells for bangladesh. army as well as for. 4 bunger this border gods. now this cargo of that friendly was in charge. and he was made agreement signed last year between bangladesh, director general of defense partners office. and they, aside, we enter on stating company valley. that's all they have said nothing more than to speculate now. we know there's some contradiction and confusion as to what the serbian defense minister said that this web illuminating minds and weapons. now we
6:15 pm
know that from what the bang, their site said, it's ammunition. so there is a tons of different as to whether it's weapons or emanation. we wouldn't know until that greek alternative. exactly. find out what was in the cargo plane and tons of it. does this reveal anything about her? bangladesh is a minute treat aspirations in this respect. not so much unusual, a banner that centered bob had been traditionally buying a man from the former soviet bloc countries. and getting weapons from farmer. check us back. yeah. you have a lobby, belly, russia, and of course, from russia. and they're carrying on the same principle. they're bringing weapons from serbia. the 1st time that broad weapons from cyber. yeah, there's been other location as well. traditionally, bangladesh, use a russian grade weapons. most stuff is kept ment, russian grade,
6:16 pm
even though majority of the weapons comes from china. but most of them again are standardized. russian grade weapons and many of them are used in peacekeeping operation, bangladesh, the largest escaping contingency across different parts of the wall. and many of these weapons used there. so it is not so unusual that bangladesh and folks item from eastern, brought farmer server block trenches. ok, related to tons of chantry life. first in dark. i thank you for that. only in or it is in belgrade with more on the response from the serbian government. serious defense minister members as defined image, confirm that ukrainian cargo plane undone on the 12 crest in greece was carrying weapons from serbia. but also on the line that it has no relation to the board in ukraine, according to the minister claim was carrying 11 and a half tons of military equipment such as the ripens and mines were used by serbian rebels company. volleyer for the ministry of defense of bungalow this as the end
6:17 pm
user. serbia minister also stated that the plane had all the proper permits in accordance with international regulations. the aircraft that to go from the nearest airport in south therubi i it, saturday around 8 40 pm has crashed to near the greek city of karbala savannah beach. explain that to technical lending. were planned in our man or eod and ultimate album with final destination in dock up the volume company management confirmed that the plane was carrying the mines for the training of bangladesh troops and the delivery was arranged back in 2021. this account of events was also confirm by the management of ukrainian aircraft company marry the end of 20 more head on the news hour, including your search for justice. why crimes, olden you are going unpunished in lebanon. the core of a tree is something like a book, it tells the story,
6:18 pm
not just of the tree but of the whole area. and the last hundreds of years meet the great grandfather, the tree in chile, that may be the oldest living thing on earth. and in sports, her moments to forgets for chelsea fans ahead of the season and he will be here ah, the testers are back on the streets of saddam demanding return to civilian rule in the capital cartoon. the security forces used tear gas to disperse demonstrators. saddam's military seized power from a traditional civilian government last october. since then, anti military protests had been held in several cities nearly every week. dozens of people who died in the unrest give a morgan has more now from car to the last major protest for the july 30th the left . at least 9 people killed and more than 600 people injured when security forces
6:19 pm
use here gather live, ammunition. previously, the un and human rights groups have described before used by security forces as brutal and excessive because the, the process have been largely peaceful with for us as trying to make their way to the presidential palace. and it was the same case again on sunday, protest says trying to make their way to the presidential palace, to voice their anger against the military to show that they want a civilian government after the military took over power more than 7 months ago. despite the fact that again, security force of using terror guys against protest keeping them away from the committee of the presidential palace. they continued to try to avoid the anger. they say that the military take over the end of the transition to democracy, that they've been demanding for for nearly 4 years now. and if anything, they will continue to tell the military that they want to see a civilian government. and they want the military to return to the barracks and stay away from for dance, politics or thing incident, at least 60 people have died and at least 157 have been wounded in the southern
6:20 pm
blue nor region during days of violence between rival tribes minister of health for the area told al jazeera that local authorities don't have enough equipment or 1st aid supplies to cope. he's calling on the government to intervene some in the country blame last year's military coup for a resurgence of ethnic violence in the area. russian missile strikes have hit a number of towns in ukraine. it follows a declaration for moscow that it was ranting attacks in all operational areas. russia says its forces destroyed and arms factory in the city of the ne prep. an fisher has more from the capital, keith, while it appears that there is a war of attrition developing in 2 parts of the country. first of all, around the don bassetti, where the russians an intent in moving into the hands to take over the entire body of the don bus. which of course became that mean military focus after they failed
6:21 pm
to capture keith. in the early days of the war, they are reinforcing they are, we are told that they are re supplying the troops that they get ready for a final push in that area to try and take over dumbass. meanwhile, in the south, the russians are fortifying their positions improving their security because the the ukrainians have said that they will assemble a 1000000 man army to take back territory in the site. that is perhaps more aspirational than practical. but it certainly shows the ukrainian intent and certainly over the last few hours, we've had reports of ukrainian attack on carson, which the claim killed. 36 russians and destroyed a number of russian ammunition dumped. the russian defense minister says that the russians will start increasing military pressure, that they will go in the areas that they need to go ask for president zalinski here in ukraine. he believes that as an indication from the russians that they will continue to target civilian areas, saying that that's exactly what they've done over the last few weeks. and of course,
6:22 pm
you remember there was a significant rocket attack on friday at the ukrainians were saying that it was a residential block in a factory that was hit that killed so many people at but the rush and say what we were actually targeting a meeting of the ukrainian navy high command, what's important to remember is that it's now been 20 weeks since since the war began. and in that time people continue to be killed. a sunday's wells day for international justice aims to highlights the fight against impunity. and the rights of victims is a cause that activists in lebanon have been pursuing for decades. of the holder reports from beirut, lebanon has never really moved on from its 15 year civil war. 3 decades later, society is as divided, and former warlords are still in politics. a general amnesty has left crimes unpunished. while the families of an estimated 17000 people missing are still
6:23 pm
waiting for answers. the lack of accountability have deep rooted causes that wed never address. at the end of the war, people will continue to find them. so victims of the car up and i'm just system, i'm still that system is up with an entirely. it's a system that suspended the investigation into one of the biggest blasts in history caused by a stockpile of ammonium. nitrate at bay will support 2 years on political interference has ensured no officials have been convicted for them more than 200 lives. last justice has yet to be served. among them, 3 year old alexandra. we will not get justice lebanon. it's impossible. giving the history of you know, everything that has happened already. there was a time when tracy nature had hope, but she says the re election of 2 m p. 's charged in connection with the explosion
6:24 pm
with a wake up call. or you can't us so criminal to judge criminal. the lack of the coming from the people of 7. we are alone. we shall alone. today. lebanon's political and securian fault lines have been exploited by politicians in the battle for accountability and not just with the baby port blast. and in my own case, that's my father's legacy. trying to circumvent a geopolitical problem in lebanon. you pay an ultimate price for that. mohammed shut off was among the politicians who opposed syrian and iranian influences, lebanon killed in a wave of assassinations. investigations haven't been credible, and culprits were never caught for his son roni, an independent judiciary and having the tools to pursue justice won't be enough. that's a security problem that lebanon is burdened with. not every problem in this country
6:25 pm
is ours. some are, and i think those are the steps forward for reform. but the larger picture, i don't think we have control over that. there has been violence when voices are raised. those in power have made the choice between peace or justice, said the alternator belt petitions. and should i have turned this site from choosing a successor to former president of roger packs up before they should? i can see the crisis that led to his departure continues. millions are enjoying shortages of food, fuel and medicines, and financial reports for markets in columbus. traders at this sunday market, see they're having trouble selling their goods. even the things that they bring dean, the out, are not selling enough for them to make a profit. now if i just take you here, this is basically a greens store, a staple industry lunk and died. we have greens for pressure for sugar, for diabetes of fob hot ailments, the works. and even here,
6:26 pm
prices have gone up early, a few who go about 2 or 3 widget of us. oh, you can't afford to do that because the cost of living is so high. so we have to cut down those things. even transportation, balancing that reducing purchasing power with the need to put nutritious meals on the table is one of the biggest challenges facing she lumpkins. amid this economic crisis, the acting president runner, vicar missing her, says between 6 and 7 and a half 1000000 people are malnourished. and the country is really struggling to get its economy in order or from anchor is appealing to friendly countries for help with its flagging economy. india has extended a new credit line, worth $55000000.00 for fertilizer in ports. china has announced assistance worth $73000000.00 for the supply of essential goods, but stayed silent on tranquil request to defer the loan repayment. colombo is also
6:27 pm
seeking an i m f bailout package to tied over the worst economic crisis since independence. wearing wicker rotney is a sri lankan member of parliament turned the former statements to finance. he says the country needs both short and long term financial support. the media challenges that are you running into the people on the street trying to get to yeah. then that will get shock cooking i started. busy the pharmacy because. ready life if you are to quantify your need about roughly about. busy $400000000.00 a month on board and about another $100000000.00. but guess pharmaceuticals for life. so if you needed to maybe supplies and also fairly easy actually thing to take care of the media on the street
6:28 pm
in colombo, the economic issue is much why that. busy discussion the diamond, i think the new government in place next week, i would expect to sign an agreement top level agreement with the within week. that would be the beginning of actually trying to turn things around. i think the impact of the certainly not in long give a statement to the market because we have been away from the market and then actually to get an i mean program approved by the i'm in my several months, but this is only the beginning. so meanwhile we have to be. busy that we are working to extend the funds but we have to be far more emergency funding. but the stock level agreement in place are still a head hair on al jazeera india's ban on some single whose plastics is causing
6:29 pm
controversy. as people try to adapt. why a bi election in pakistan's most populous province could have national implications . oh, yeah. oh, reach on the world. and the ethiopian tract stars celebrating her 1st major go metal. ah ah hello. we have more very heavy rain pushing back into a mon over the next few days. you can see this massive cloud into the north of the arabian sea. that's circulation. that's gonna fit some very heavy down poles in it . once again, the likelihood of 1st some flash flooding in place is certainly something to keep an eye on 43 celsius, the doha, and 40 by large. he tries a 50 there impact that
6:30 pm
a rather more comfortable $2930.00 or so just along the east coast of the mediterranean, over the next few days, some of the picture for tuesday, still some showers around southern parts of the arabian peninsula. pushing back into yemen, southern areas of the red sea could catch one or 2 showers. they joined up with a showers just sliding off the ethiopian highlands through the central areas of africa across the central belt. some lively showers pushing actually into our northern parser of west africa. so we could see some localized letting us know them areas of nigeria using across southern parts of molly, maybe easing over toward sannicolas. well, some big outpost there for liberia and sierra leone. we could there was some ra wet a weather into eastern parts of africa, not too much of that on the cath, but there will be some showers. having said that, some showers there into where most and baking sandy some showered into madagascar. meanwhile, it's largely dry. the south africa ah,
6:31 pm
housing has become a commodity instead of human rights. thank you. somebody with the ability to take advantage of others, the elite feel free to violate basic laws, the working classes that have lost a lot of ground society. a un special reporter on adequate housing travels the world, investigating a global crisis. as people are evicted to clear the way for investors and properties too often left empty, push a witness documentary on al jazeera. we tell the untold stories. ah, we speak when others done, ah, we cover all sides. no matter where it takes us. a fear of my eye and power impartial. we tell your story. we are your voice,
6:32 pm
your news, your net out his ear. ah ah, do with al jazeera reminder of our top stories, this are a cargo plane carrying weapons as trashed in northern greece, killing all 8 crew members. air craft was traveling from serbia to bangladesh. the pilots had reportedly requested an emergency landing due to an engine problem that was unable to reach the runway protest, as are back on the streets of sudan, demanding a return to civilian rule. capital cartoon security forces used to tear gas to disperse demonstrators. southern europe is in the grip of
6:33 pm
a devastating summer heat wave which has sparked wildfires and let us hundreds of heat related debts to fires in southern france have forced evacuation 14000 people . let's look into this now with that he kirk costler. she's a specialist in urban development and the climate change at the university box, which she joins us from antwerp in the netherlands. thanks for being here on the program. can you give us all an idea? first of all of the frequency and intensity of heat that many countries are lucky to face going forward. well, so, okay, so the i p c c, which is the. ringback state of the art climate science circle to meets clear at the frequency and the intensity of extreme heat waves is going to increase as atmospheric temperatures, right? so we are in for seeing much more extreme temperatures, much more frequency of these extreme temperature. and this is only going to increase not just introduce many hot climates,
6:34 pm
but also climate that are not equipped often to deal with the level of extreme heat . and is anything we can do then with a, for example, design of new buildings or existing buildings of the urban landscape, for example, to try and help this situation. yes, so much so. so buildings are on it, one of the largest consumers of energy and cooling the cooling, to be able to provide relief from extreme heat is one of the largest sources of growing sources. oh, energy use within buildings. in fact, the largest increase of energy in buildings is going to come from cooling, particularly because of this rising heat that twisting around us. now, there's no real way to ashley tackle this issue without making buildings central to us solutions. the ways in which we can do that a both active measure and passive measures. so i described that in a few words. active measures is when we use energy intensive mechanisms to be able
6:35 pm
to provide cooling. so using fine syncing at conditions. but actually, these are not great because they use a lot of energy, which is often fossil fuel based. the other way to do it is passive message measures. so for instance, protecting buildings from heat using things like shaving high bill materials that actually don't let heat enter the building. so having well insulated buildings having better reflectance. so having roofs walls that have high reflectance event, but when the heat hits, it bounces off, having water, bodies of agitation that absorbs their heat and doesn't let it enter the building. these are all the different ways. and there are many more actually in which the boat environment and help protect people from extreme heat. and given what you say is anywhere in the world that's doing particularly well in tackling these environmental issues. well,
6:36 pm
there are no heat action plans now in many parts of the wallet in india there she's actually man in the city of and the bug which is almost a decade old, that has been quite successful in saving one number of flights, the built environment. oh, it are often they difficult to change once oppertunity in real estate in many parts of the world, but also in terms of going back and better some of the buildings in, in developed parts of the world better seeing these dr. temperatures. now next he will building the building that actually don't use any active energy. are evidenced and seen across the world. they're not focused or not to be limited to a particular region or a particular climate time. and i think that's quite promising to be able to see the types of met the will building in different cities around the world. ok,
6:37 pm
we'll leave it that he can come from the university box with thank you very much and a few time hand today on i'll just hear thank you. a china is a struggling to manage in extreme temperatures. electricians are trying to maintain power grids and buckling under the strain of relentless heat waves. 68 cities including shanghai have issued red alerts in temperatures exceeding 40 degrees celsius. a forecast the next 24 hours. while counting is a climate change expert at the australian national university, he says reducing greenhouse gas levels quickly is proving difficult, meaning people will have to adapt. there's a particular thing that's happening and that's particularly related to changes in the jet stream. that's a high level, very fast moving band if it circulates the globe. and at the moment that's been changed by climate change. and that's bringing in this particular case, very hot from side india across towards china. at this point,
6:38 pm
our emissions globally going up. they're not turning in round the corner and studying to go down any way to limit the effects of climate change life. the heat was, we're seeing all the files that were seeing. we have to reduce those emissions very rapidly and very significantly going down something like 45 percent by 2030. and we have a long way from that at the moment. but given that we haven't been able to turn around those greenhouse gas emission trajectories, that means we have to adapt to the climate change is experiencing now, and we'll experience over the next decade. so everything from putting more green spaces in cities to, to cool the cities down to i having more heat reflective building materials and road materials so that they don't absorb the energy but reflect it back out into the atmosphere. india has banned several single use plastic items into plans to phase out more by the end of the year. many who rely on the products, so they aren't ready for the transition. have limited reports from the day. india
6:39 pm
