2:02 pm
the u.n. is warning of disease outbreaks. and kenya at least one hundred twelve people have been killed and more than two hundred sixty thousand displaced over the past two months red cross says it doesn't have enough money to fund its emergency operations under some and has been traveling with one of the relief. the situation isn't getting any easier in fact it's getting worse the kenya red cross warning now that they can only reach a quarter of the fifty thousand people who are marooned cut off completely and in a bad situation we set out with one of their teams to find one area where people needed help pretty desperately. it looks like a vast lake yet this is the river town or it's consumed villages and lives.
2:03 pm
we changed course away from the river going deep into the bush. the mango trees full of fruit hardy. the birds make good out of most situations but any illusion of normality is lost when you look through the clearing . was a seasonal stream has turned into this. the forces of nature are the water line that still rising on the shore line ahead people who have walked for hours from higher land they've waited days for help to arrive no cheers no shouts no pushing but the need here is deep seated. it's not everywhere in the world where you'd find people so calm in
2:04 pm
a situation like this when they've been marooned for several days with absolutely nothing coming in until now but there are pockets of anger because i hadn't heard of that and i didn't know that that was the satellite here that i have been here for the days waiting for the help i haven't received any of the days no a can wait in it all now i need it now. he has all the right to say that but again i can also help way come. across we've done what we can for now and asking more people to come and help us so that we can reach more people. and even some of those getting their rations of food anough aid to give them basic shelter feel it's not enough this mother of eight is setting out on a two hour walk back to where she's living rough her home has been lost along with her life still i don't i'm so much that i was on i did i was even though i'm scared about my children the hungry they're exposed to the rains and because of that we're
2:05 pm
likely to fall sick for those left behind you can see it from their expressions they need help now along with so many others and even more remote places than this . here in the neighboring county of khalifi it's the reverse of baccy another major river that's causing all of the hardship right now people are leaving the school here so many schools have been used to shelter but now it isn't nature that's forcing these people away it's actually the government because they want these schools to reopen there are seven them seven of them here in gary she alone many others are also being used they've got much better facilities obviously water and sanitation but no these people are going through a camp they're having to move again they're not really complaining that fact that their children need education but everyone is really getting to terms trying to get to terms of the fact that this crisis isn't going to be over within days in mind
2:06 pm
will be over within months because there could be a lasting effect so many crops lost so many livelihoods are lost they had a drought now they've had another extreme to long rains to wrench will rain and the forecast is adjusting the rains could go right into june that means crops will be totally destroyed it would have been the planting season and then you're into what could be another drought afterwards well these people are in a situation where there should be an abundance of food here but their whole life loads the whole lives are being threatened. is a live pictures now from the air base in southern california where. bound for mars on board a rocket has just taken off up in the air before dawn in southern california to circle the earth before heading out and mars will be taking around about seven months to get to the red planet causes many reports. to help.
2:07 pm
as well as the planet's composition. it's a mission to deepen our understanding of the red planet quite literally once nasa's mars insight lands it will send probes deep under the surface not just to find out more about that world but also our own mars is geologically similar to earth what's different is that it's relatively unchanged since its formation something scientists hope will provide clues as to how the earth formed after the big bang we want to understand what happened in those first few ticks of the clock on the earth that evidence has been mostly erased. by instrument point but that's not all the mars insights to your mission will also use seismometers like these to measure quakes on the planet and in a first experiment of its kind the mars insight will be trying out new satellite
2:08 pm
technology called cube sat two briefcase sized satellites will break off from the insite shortly after take off and follow it to mars but stay in orbit while it does its work below if they can still transmit the data back to earth it's thought they could revolutionize satellite use its nasa is first interplanetary mission to be launched from a base other than florida's cape canaveral something that should provide some entertainment for southern californians people in was angeles you know santa barbara and they tell me even down to san diego you should be able to have you know a good show for several minutes as long as the fall there's no clouds in the sky but after saying goodbye the scientists will have to wait six months before insight reaches its target and is able to dig deep into the red planet kristen salumi al-jazeera there and right as a space commentator he joins us via skype from dublin there good to have you with
2:09 pm
us which is looking at some pictures there we can see the rockets continuing to launch up in space the conditions are only good for liftoff but how perilous is this journey. well this is in some ways the easiest part of it because the most dangerous part will be landing on mars this spacecraft is a particular type that the americans have sent to mars twice before the first crashed the second was a spectacular success so they'll be hoping that this is a success too meanwhile anyone watching this broadcast in southern california or in mexico near the western coast should have a magnificent view just now as the spacecraft stages the first stage falling away should be a beautiful view that's incredible i wish i was able to be watching it from that what it i've seen lands on mars if it lands on mars once that's what i mean discovery once it's medicine well this is a very unusual mission for one reason the americans have built the spacecraft
2:10 pm
they've also built the rocket that is currently powering its way into space but the main instruments on the inside lander are european the french have provided the seismometer we heard just a few minutes ago about how that's going to probe beneath the surface of mars to understand its interior and the other instrument was built in germany that's a heat probe that's designed to understand the way in which he transmits itself through the martian crust so a very much an international mission and one that scientists are looking forward to because while we it's interesting that we know more about the surface of mars than we do about the earth because so much of the earth is covered in water we do not know anything virtually about the interior of mars and that's what this is going to change so one of the image is a we're likely to see how much is going to be sent back to us here on earth sadly
2:11 pm
this mission is going to be something of a disappointment for us in television because they have picked the most boring place on the. surface of mars to land the spacecraft it's simply not likely that we will see anything except sand and a few rocks simple reason for that they don't want any big rocks that they can crash on right they don't want to take any chances that's all about was under the surface that they're interested in this time exactly this is to understand the interior of mars ok that does briefly tell us what we know about mas already we know a huge amount about the surface we have mapped the surface of mars as i said in more detail than we have mapped the surface of the earth but the most intriguing aspect of mars is what lies beneath not just deep in mars which we know nothing about but also closer to the surface the first half kilometer of mars is where
2:12 pm
there could potentially be life still harbored against safe against the radiation that would otherwise kill it so this mission will provide us with new information about the conditions in the subsurface of mars and combined with the european nation that is about to report to us from orbit around mars we hope by the end of this year to have a much better fix on whether there is life still underneath the surface of mars has that of course remains the big question there and right many thanks for joining us there from dublin. now russian police have detained supporters of opposition leader head of planned protests across the country some of the rallies in the biggest cities have not been authorized but organizers say they will go ahead anyway the demonstrations come just two days ahead of putin's inauguration the theme of these protests is he is

2:14 pm
wayne and another start up. killer wears one of the world's most active volcanoes vulcanologists say it was never a question of when but where the volcano might erupt what's different this time is that a new fissure is a period much further down the mountain the challenge with this activity is the fact that it occurred in a populated area now the question is will it stay in that area will it move to another part of the part of the volcano and how long will it last. officials ordered at least seven thousand five hundred people to leave their homes including everyone in the town of. residence a familiar with the dangers four years ago killer ways lava flow stopped just short of the town. experts say the guess is and highly toxic but while the lever is dangerous it's slow moving that means people will have time to escape even for those who did get close to it but buildings can't
