during the day we heard some heavy as every johnny artillery fighting so as we speak the clashes continue and there is no cease fire i have to though that we can't independently verify the claims coming from but who this country has been under martial law for the past few weeks there are strict censorship rules here the internet is being so down social media are being blocked there is a lot of propaganda and rule rhetoric around here the president appears regularly on t.v. sometimes wearing camouflage and he has insisted that his country has the right to reclaim its territory by fools by territory he means to go in a car about and the surrounding areas so as the fighting enters a 2nd month there is no sign of backing down here in azerbaijan aaron the armenians are accusing azerbaijan of violating delays laid
a ceasefire brokered by the u.s. the armenian prime minister is also been very active communicating his country's position on social media can you tell us something about that. definitely prime minister nicole pasha took to social media yesterday late last night actually and as a surprise to no one declared that the ceasefire had patently failed and some other comments which she posted to facebook which i found quite interesting he actually expressed how little confidence his government had had in the cease fire efforts to begin with he said in advance he'd actually reached out to american diplomats and asked them to actually closely monitor the situation because as he put it he said armenia was going to blame azerbaijan azerbaijan was going to blame our media and that he needed international observers to be playing close attention to actually kind of functions like an arbiter of truth to actually express what is really going on in the conflict region and really at its core a kind of goes to show you how little confidence the armenian side actually had in this internationally money. monitored cease fire. you've been about 20
kilometers close to the front lines you were on board to and as every city caught up in this conflict what did people there have to say to you. what barbara is still considered to be relatively safe and it's a place where people who are living right at the frontline in the villages there have fled to to seek safety so in bartow some schools have been turned into emergency shelters to how's these people and many people there have all vs leave been for a long they've lost their homes many people also have lost relatives or a loved one either at the front line because they've been fighting there or a soldier is more in their shelling but would review strikes me is despite everything people i spoke to really support this war and they are determined to continue they say they stand behind their leadership ship though so there is
a striking absence here in the country of critical opinions when it comes to this war and the human cost of it. thanks so very much for that as for by john our until. the armenian capital thanks. thank you. to germany now or a doubling of coronavirus cases in just one week has chance for all america considering more drastic measures to contain the pandemic on wednesday or be holding an emergency meeting with the country's 16 city from years to discuss tougher restrictions they're likely to focus on orders to close bars and restaurants and restrict public go. german officials are worried about the latest numbers coming from the country's public health institute daily infections have reached new highs and there are more than 250 hotspots nationwide germany last weekend also exceeded the grim milestone of $10000.00 coronavirus deaths now these

ever thought before but they shut down the idea that that would mean the moon could harbor life. the discovery of more water on the moon was confirmed by technology from its flying lab the stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy known also by its acronym sophia the scientists said that the deposits are at least partly the result of meteors that carried water and that crashed on the surface of the moon the impact to const rock to melt and form glass beads and trapping the water thus allowing it to survive on the moon's far surface more water bearing beads might also be buried deeper nasa also said that there is perhaps more water hidden in the form of ice patches located in permanent shadows of the moon one of the nasa scientists said that it's not a lot of water the amount is equal to $1300.00 milliliter bottle of water per cubic
meter another said that the water doesn't mean that there could be life on the moon because you need more than water to ensure the conditions for life oh. well. however scientists did say that if they can eventually extract enough water from the moon it could eliminate the need to bring water on space missions water is very heavy and takes up a lot of room room that could be used for other purposes. we have some business we go football now on a monday night match here in germany with aus for playing at leverkusen that match was tied deep in the 2nd half but lukas a lhari 0 directed the ball into the net with this free kick for his 2nd goal of
