we often talk about how secretive north korea is. not today. here's the man running the associated press news agency in north korea, eric talmadge. he's talking about this image, released by north korea. you can see the shadow of kim jon—un falls across what appears to be a diagram of an untested missile. the officials with him are standing in front of a chart showing another one. we've seen this before. two weeks ago, photos of kim jong—un planning a missile test in the direction of the us island of guam showed an aerial view of an american base there. and back in 2013, a wall chart with the title "plan to strike the us mainland" appeared in the background of a photo with the north korean leader. analysts say this could all be deliberate. jenny town, assistant director
9:32 pm
of the us—korea institute atjohns hopkins sais and the managing editor of 38 north. new don't believe this was only iceland? no. it is deftly not a nice of them. they do like to demonstrate power as well as demonstrate that they have options as well. widely it in this way, as if it was some kind of coincidence that these badgers happen to be in the background?” think we have a lot of reasons for doing it this way, one is again this year year as talks about, we have military options, all options are on the table. i think it is way that they are signalling that they have plans in place in case something happens. and i think it is also a way to send messages without backing yourself into committing to setting
9:33 pm
things, like not largely saying the words, we're going to threaten you, we're going to attack you, but there again showing that there is something in the works if they needed. and i suppose the advantage of doing it in this way, you don't even have to have developed the technology, are you have to do is show a picture of the blueprint and you have the world talking. yes, but at this end, i wouldn't talk it up com pletely at this end, i wouldn't talk it up completely to a blah. i'm sure, even ina completely to a blah. i'm sure, even in a picture we saw recently, there was a picture of a missile in the background that that have... i am sure it is something and development, and we think we have seen this before in terms of, this is the missing chain in the length that we haven't seen any well. i would trust that these are designs that they are working on, and things
9:34 pm
that they are working on, and things that they are working on, and things that they have been working on for a while. but the idea that they are showing us these things does give them different ways to sort of their mind us that there is much as we have options, they have options to. i seriously particular match being taken this time? it is hard to say. i think the bigger question now is julie, yes there has been a part msl testing, there could be several reasons why that is, and some could be political, some could be technical, and they could be making adjustments, but they could also be thinking about, are they ready to test these new models as well? what might happen after the military jails are over. thank you very much for joining jails are over. thank you very much forjoining us. sport now, and the champions league draw has been made. let's go to the bbc sport centre to find out more. steve wyeth is in the bbc sport centre. it is not often, in fact it is not
9:35 pm
often until the draw is made that the real reality ofjust how competitive european football's .com petition as becomes apparent, and once again there are some tantalising ties to look forward to, not least the reigning champions real madrid. they might have anticipated a favourable door, but instead they look to be in the toughest group of the lot. they are joined by borussia dortmund and totte n ha m joined by borussia dortmund and tottenham hotspur. a mouthwatering licking group there. two of the most exciting teams in all of europe, manchester city and natalie, they have been drawn together in group f. those are two games that i will be looking out for. and liverpool, they will be satisfied with their return to the champions league group stage, because they have been paired with spartak moscow because they have been paired with spa rtak moscow and because they have been paired with
9:36 pm
spartak moscow and malabar, two of the lowest ranked teams in the competition. any other half of the job, manchester united, another side making a return to the champions league, they too should feel confident are progressing. that contains two teams who will expected go deeper into the competition, but they will have to deal with each other first, by munich and paris st germain, who very recently made name at the first $200 million footballer. pepsi is very tough. chelsea, atletico madrid and roma will all have very serious aspirations of making a big impression. finally, last season's beaten finalists juventus start their quest in group d with a team they beat en route to the final, barcelona. the group stage gets underway second tuesday of september, september the 12. plenty to look forward to. boxing, and the countdown to mayweather against mcgregor is on. they face each other
9:37 pm
in las vegas on saturday. mayweather has come out of retirement to fight the mixed martial arts champion who'll be making his professional debut as a boxer. and if the fight lives up to the hype in the press conference it could be quite an event. i have taken the workers of beans break those very seriously and i boggle at and perform. i am going to ibrox this man at his own game. that is how much of a different level i am to him. we had a little bit of the press conference. ben mundy is in las vegas. what else have they been saying to each other? that press conference was actually toned down, if anything, compared to the build—up to this fight over the last few months. a little bit of respect been
9:38 pm
shown by both fighters. reality of this begs now just shown by both fighters. reality of this begs nowjust a0 miles away. lots of added here to back their man, conor mcgregor, the champion who is watching sports to take on floyd mayweather. as you say, eg is out of retirement. he retired in 2015, he has a9 wins out of a9 fights, and he is back for one reason— to break the record. fights, and he is back for one reason- to break the record. just how lucrative is a fight going to be? it depends who you believe and which reports you read. they have signed a contract not to die was the amount of money that they will pocket from this. it is rumoured to be around £80 million —— £80 million. rumours suggest that some
9:39 pm
are set to add a lot more than that. it is likely to break a pay—per—view record. five maya people expected to watch this fight around the world. it is likely to be shown in 220 countries on saturday night. it is back, and that is going to be very lucrative for both of those men. thank you very much. two days to go and tell that fight. stay with us on 0utside source — still to come: we spoke to nawal al—maghafi yesterday about the human suffering the civil war in yemen is causing. today, she's back to talk about this enormous political rally that's been held in the capital. middle—aged people are being urged to walk faster to help stay healthy, amid concerns inactivity may be harming their health. dominic hughes has this report on moves to increase activity. in the derbyshire peak district, the
9:40 pm
stockport workers are about to head to the hills. i believe the weather is going to be fine. the beauty of walking is that it is free, you don't need any special training or kept. regular rockers will tell you that there are huge benefits. this manjoined the that there are huge benefits. this man joined the club after putting on weight in his 50s. psychologically, it is great. if you feel a bit down, you get some miles and evil, and when you get on the appeal 100% better, and nothing feels as bad as it did before. now public health england says too many adults are not getting enough physical activity, leading to hundreds of avoidable early deaths. but walking briskly, at around three miles per hour, for around ten minutes each day, can significantly reduce the risk of ill—health. that's the advice gp dr zoe williams offers her patients. practising what she preaches, she uses a smartphone app to measure her own progress. but according to a survey of our exercise habits,
9:41 pm
millions of adults are missing out. four in ten adults between the ages of a0 and 60 are not managing to achieve ten minutes of brisk walking per month. which sounds unbelievable, and lots of those people will be walking, but not walking at a brisk pace and it's important to walk briskly because that's when you start to get the health benefits. this advice from health experts to do ten minutes of brisk walking every single day sounds simple enough, but many of us struggle to work that kind of activity into our everyday lives. so here are some tips. if you use public transport to get to work you, could hop off a stop early and continue the rest of your journey on foot. once you get to work, don't take the lift, use the stairs. if you do get a break during the day, for example a lunch hour, you could use that time to stretch the legs. walking can help with weight loss, back pain, long—term conditions like diabetes, even reducing the risk of cancer. now we're all being urged
9:42 pm
to get up and get moving. dominic hughes, bbc news, the peak district. this is 0utside source live from the bbc newsroom. 0ur lead story is: prosecutors in denmark will bring murder charges against the inventor suspected of killing a swedish journalist on board his submarine. the government of cellular and say people have died in the capital of freetown. chechnya's leader is encouraging divorced couples to the nite. some excise have complained
9:43 pm
about the pressure to reunite, with one calling the initiated by then. bbc russian has that story. brazil's government has abolished a vast national reserve in the amazon to open up the area to mining. brazil is a massive country with a vast rainforest. the protected area straddles the northern states of amapa and para, and is thought to be rich in gold, and other minerals. it is larger than denmark. according to the energy ministry, protected forest areas and indigenous reserves will not be affected. it says... "the objective of the measure is to attract new investments, generating wealth for the country." but there's plenty of opposition to the move. the head of wwf in brazil said that mining in the area would lead to "demographic explosion, deforestation, the destruction of water resources." on the government's position. for a while, the government has been
9:44 pm
making a series of decisions, announcing a series of measures to increase the amount of money it is able to get every year, because purcell is, at this point, in a very, very large deficits, at least the public accounts have been quite recently. they have been announcing a number of measures including this measure is this ethically, and ordered to give it some more space for the mining companies in brazil. this is actually a request of the mining sector, has been a quest of the many sector for years, mining sector, has been a quest of the many sectorfor years, and mining sector, has been a quest of the many sector for years, and so far all of the requests to mind their specific area have been denied. well, no, no more. the government has given some reassu ra nces government has given some reassurances that indigenous people and the forest itself will be protected. there are many who simply don't believe that. exactly. there are currently nine conservation
9:45 pm
areas inside this whole reserve, i mean, former reserve. like most of the environmentalist and human right groups in results eight is that this is already a very difficult area to control. we have talked to some people who live around this natural reserve , people who live around this natural reserve, and they say, already we see legal this forestation happening, and it is a protected area, can you imagine when it is not? what is brazil's record like in recent yea rs not? what is brazil's record like in recent years in protecting the ra i nfo rest recent years in protecting the ra i nforest it recent years in protecting the rainforest it is in charge of, even getting involved in the forestation. it has been pretty active? in the past 15 years, brazil has had more victories than losses, but the situation is very far from perfect. in 2000 and a2 2013, the forestation actually decreased around 70%, and the result was considered a case as
9:46 pm
it -- the result was considered a case as it--a the result was considered a case as it —— a case of success, but that year it started to entries mostly due to criminal organisations in the area. this year, again, in the past year, the forestation has started to decrease again. those fines must happen because of the kind of occupation you have in the legal amazon. brazil is struggling cell, especially the most recent government. environmentalists are complaining that in order to get support inside congress, the president has been relaxing a a lot of the laws of economic activities in the amazon. we had nawal al—maghafi on the show last night to talk about the suffering the two year war in yemen is causing. you might be surprised then, to see these pictures today from the capital. the man who's face you can see on these posters is the former yemeni president, ali abdullah saleh — he's held a big rally in sanaa.
9:47 pm
just to remind you of the situation in yemen, mr saleh is allied to houthi rebels who control the capital, that's the territory in green on this map. they're fighting forces loyal to the internationally recognised president, who's backed by a saudi—led coalition — their territory is in red. earlier i spoke to nawal — i asked her how significant it was that that rally went ahead. there has been a lot of talk about them not wanting them to go ahead, so it is quite significant. there we re so it is quite significant. there were huge numbers there. people were really worried that this would mean he would and i said he is finally breaking the alliance, but that did not happen. tell us about this alliance between the former president and the rebels? why is it showing signs of strain at the moment? in the last few days, we
9:48 pm
have seen the president make state m e nts have seen the president make statements against them. he has said that they have money to pay civil serva nts that they have money to pay civil servants salaries which have been stopped by the last ten months. their rebels have said that he is void of any religious arpeggio take —— arpeggio take responsibilities towards yemen. you can see the growing tensions between them. also, the rebels are worried that deals are being cut but saudi arabia who has been leading the war against yemen. what might it mean if they both when the separate race? together, they create a force in the north of the country that has made it impossible for the saudi led coalition to reinstate the internationally recognised government, but a part edward mean that the rebels don't have the strength to stay in the north, i'm a big first to go back to where they we re big first to go back to where they were originally from. it would also mean that we have gone back to
9:49 pm
square one. if the president gets the backing of saudi arabia and cuts as deal with them, he willjust be the man in charge again. and meanwhile, on the ground, the white rages on. exactly. -- the war rages on. that there is a situation that you have reported on. you have seen it for yourself, it is truly appalling. it is shocking. every time we got, the one thing we see a major change in is that you manage trading situation. as far as we were reporting on starvation, and this time, colander. it is about epidemic that we have seen in decades. —— cholera. now let's take you back to rio de janeiro this time last year. we'd had the excitement of the olympic games and its spectacular carnival—inspired closing ceremony. a year on, with the world's gaze no longer on the brazilian city,
9:50 pm
it seems to be facing challenges on several fronts. katy watson reports gunfire on the streets of rio. every day brings new shoot out and new victims. according to state security, nearly 3500 people were murdered in the first six months of this year. the number of people killed by police and shoot outs rose by 45%. killed by police and shoot outs rose by a5%. thousands of soldiers have been deployed on the street in recent weeks, issue of forced. but with an economic crisis and police budget cuts, not everyone is convinced they will make a difference. translation: the violence has increased a lot and then last year. i think it is because the state is in crisis. that affects the people and unemployment, which increases the number of criminals on the streets. things are out of control. we don't even want to leave the house might because we
9:51 pm
don't feel safe. in my neighbourhood yesterday, eight vehicles were robbed, and now the crossfire can be heard everywhere, not only nfl ellis. every day, the newspapers have news headlines as the number of victims have risen. this newspaper has created a section dedicated to covering the violence. amid the violence, some offence came up with a bright idea, and at informing people about shootings. it started asa people about shootings. it started as a personal project, but neither has hundreds of thousands of followers. the government was not doing anything. nobody knows how many shootings are happening, how many shootings are happening, how many robberies are happening. we are exposing the violence in real in this point in time. this former police commander says it the problem is bad policies. when a brazilian
9:52 pm
dies every 9 million, when 10% of the homicides in the world have been here, there is something deeply wrong. despite being one of the largest economies in the role, there isa largest economies in the role, there is a brittle and equality. historically, we have tried to solve the problem of violence is classically with the police. that report from katie watson. scientists say they have developed an insecticide that exploits a mosquito's attraction to sweet substances and makes it believe it is drinking a sugary treat. over1 million people die from malaria each year, mostly children under five years of age. 90% of malaria cases occur in sub—saharan africa. the drug called vectrax has successfully eradicated malaria in several tanzanian villages where it's been trialled. agenor mafra—neto is a chemical ecologist who has developed the new product — he explains how it works. usually people think about
9:53 pm
mosquitoes taking a blood meal. we found out that mosquitoes go for flowers a nd found out that mosquitoes go for flowers and other sugar solutions, and nectar is basically the daily fuel. they need constantly to take a little bit of sugar everywhere. what we decided to do was to work with the smell of lavender, the smell of this nectar sources. the interesting thing about the sugar, the flower smell, is that it attracts mosquitoes outside the house, and allows us to manipulate their behaviour and induce them to feed on populations that can be sprayed outside. the us defence secretary has been a new key and —— has been in ukraine on its independence day. russia and its chimera from ukraine in 201a. let's show you some badgers. —— some
