up there are security forces that are nice town sort on the other hand the challenge is that many of the decks your forces are not able to reach people in nepal for example communication dogs have fallen down key high evey's have been got off so the plan for now may well be for these security forces to wait for the monsoons to recede for the water to recede to be able to reach out to because people and helped with rescue and we have an addition to the record is going to show just well in delhi thank you very much. jennifer snow and to hong kong next where the storm of protest over a now suspended extradition bill continues on sunday police and protesters fought running battles in a shopping mall in sharpton district of the city the government described protesters who attacked police as rioters and said more than 10 officers were injured in the while and. was the latest phase in a deepening political crisis an uprising that has no shifted away from the
