this and try to clarify exactly what's happened here is this the hijacking of a saudi ship and a south korean oil rig or are we still trying to ascertain. yes according to the office full statements by the whole thing is that the he said that they have already can be skated by the cost guards of. 2 military vehicles but they haven't given more details about the about these vehicles the mention that the have been the money regional waters so the coast guard have carried out their dinner a procedures on they have killed or skated or they have stocked these 2. military vehicles are into the yemeni course lines but so far the according to sources that i've talked to said that the these 2
vehicles or the. car south korea and a south korean ship meant or a rare oil rig but they haven't given more details but according to our southern sols or from the how these government they said that the there were 2. ships one belongs to the south korea it's an oil rig on board that. there was there were 28 sailors while the other. ship was belongs to saudi arabia it's an oil tanker that contains a big quantities of oil this same healthy source expressed. outrage that the international community. have already out cried over these ordinary procedure
while shipments of oil are still being kept and banned by the saudi authorities despite that the united nations have already given them clearance to enter yemeni. tone tell yemeni waters. just just clarify for us as well what the process is from here and when are under what circumstances these vessels would be released you hearing anything about that. there were according to the holy souls that are going to held a press by the. official of the army spokesperson all speak about the the circumstances of the incident and why the coast guard carried out their procedures on the have during their patter all so and also will talk about the procedures how they are going to release but according to a source that i have talked to the. told me that the they are ready to receive any
confirmation by the south korea in case it it it it has such already it belongs to them and also a journalist source told me that the where is this oil rig is being taken because the the red sea is fall with a big result of reserves of oil specially that this is is just. they were not any day digging inside the red sea which has big reserves of oil ok thank you for that mohamed we can discuss this further now phil dark on is a partner at dr global a maritime security risk management company he joins us by skype from kent in the u.k. phil i don't know if you were listening to our reporter mohammed the basically he's saying that who things have confirmed to him that they have see or seized these 2 vessels one perhaps a saudi vessel the other a south korean or already when you hear this what are your immediate thoughts
particularly when it comes to the legalities of the situation. good evening so the 1st thing to remember is to put this into the wider context we've seen over the last 6 months alone the power play the interchange between iran and saudi arabia and let's not forget that's exactly what this is about so no doubt there has been that the proxy influence through the booties by iran on to saudi assets and really the target here is the saudi vessels the tug the sunny battle that is saudi flagged and is likely to be saudi crude so that's the real aim or target of of the of the capture as it were so what's our reaction well this is exactly what we've been advising our clients for the last 6 months it is that saudi assets in particular are a specific threat form or a 1000000 backed will proxy efforts against their own saudi assets in the areas particularly in the sudden red sea now we've seen it play out in the straits of hormuz all who is as well and more recently of course the drone attack on the saudi
on thirty's all of the time when aramco is of course looking to float so this is this is prime time to get that attention and it's look at the wider context of what's going on with potential peace negotiations yet the hooty are letting us all know that they are still a player. i want to go through some of those things but the who things are also general cording to our reporter there expressing surprise that there should be any outrage or any outcry about this legally how is this seen under maritime law. well anything that is in international waters is of course if you interfere with that then you are going against effectively a sovereign asset so it is an illegal act as there were a lot of this just think back to you on the straits of hormuz there are lots of ways of trying to present a situation as being illegal are all that conducting an illegal activities and they are actually conducting illegal ones but really outrage in terms of interfering
with a freedom of navigation absolutely this will be an illegal act in that sense but butties really. will be worried about that you know because there's a wider picture here going back to that wider picture you mentioned just just a moment ago of course not it's not just the capacity to be able to carry out operations like this and hijack a vessel but also those attacks on the saudi oil plantations as well what does this then tell us about the ongoing capacity of the who are these so many years into this conflict and i think that's exactly the point has been trying to be made here now there's no doubt that they're being backed by external resources i mean the attacks example on the oil facilities that was a high intensity attack that required a lot of resource this one far less so this is definitely within the hooty capability without specific backing or significant results edition to them so it's totally in line what they're capable of doing phil thank you so much for giving us
a ton of pressure at that thank you now turn to hong kong protesters they are confronting police as they try to rescue people caught up in a university standoff demonstrators have been holed up inside the campus for several days before dawn on monday police entered the grounds and faced a barrage of petrol bombs and arrows they responded with tear gas and water cannon more salami. then the weapons were used in a poorly attended university which has become a weapon factory as well as a refugee for extremely violent viruses the development so robbins has reached a critical level rochus has so intent to murder our officer at all cost. later a number of demonstrators fled the university building some on motorbikes several were arrested but it's not known how many remain inside now large groups of people have been marching to the campus to try to break through the police cordons and

by creating hotspots in other areas of callaloo and they would draw away police manpower and take some of the pressure off the police cordon around the university allowing some of those protesters the chance to get away because all of them do face lengthy prison sentences the police say that they will be charged with a number of offenses including rioting which does carry a lengthy prison sentence for the protesters themselves obviously wanting to avoid that they've been looking at opportunities of trying to get out but the police are determined that all of them will have to give themselves up eventually and will face prosecution. was probably more ahead on the news hour including dozens of people arrested in iran a key. of leading riots you guys petrol price increases. power shortage of onions in bangladesh is causing hardship for the poor. but in sport here with all the

couldn't they were not able to get on a plane because they were discriminated against and the reason why they're here to do it is because they want any administration that takes office to know that something like that can never happen again to rosa thank you to as a boy live there from the possible round by supporters it of ephemerality. deforestation in the amazon has hit its highest level in a decade brazil's space agency says the world's largest rainforest lost 9763 square kilometers of vegetation that's a rise of 29.5 percent between august 28th maine and july this year and vajra middle of sublime in brazil's president jaya balsa naro who favors developing the rainforest for economic gain there is a senior research associate at the ecosystems lab at the university of oxford and a visiting research associate at lancaster university she joins us by skype from
santorum in brazil nice to have you with us just remarkable numbers when you look at the at the level of deforestation i want to get to the causes in just a moment but what is the impact of this we've already seen fires at record levels more broadly what's the impact of this deforestation. this impacts that we're losing the most rich eco system on the arts they are losing their system to have the largest amount of biodiversity and that the store is a large amount of carbon and once we've barn and forest if there is all this current event back to that much here footing has been climate change so this is that. and when it comes to the reasons here are some of course this is all because of the expansionist economic policies of job also narrow others though there are illegal logging illegal land seizures and so on that also contribute to this where does the balance in this fall. well we have
