al jazeera. i really felt liberated as a journalist was. getting to the truth as i would love for this job to. china condemns the storming of hong kong's palm and calling violent demonstrations and i'm this guy's challenge. and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. and i think they're playing with fire. the u.s. president vows to keep up the pressure on the run off that iran announces an increase in enrich uranium. on the frontlines we need the medical workers in libya's capital working on the dangerous conditions. and we look to the skies from
a small town in chilling to watch a rare eclipse. china is calling the overnight protests in hong kong a blatant challenge to the one country 2 systems principle under which the territories run it's the strongest condemnation from beijing since protesters stormed hong kong's main government building on monday night protesters were angry about an extradition bill which would allow suspects to be tried on the mainland. those scenes followed a largely peaceful rally through the streets of hong kong around 500000 people attended that march on monday occurred on the 22nd anniversary of hong kong's handover to china from britain hong kong's me there carrie lam condemned the actions of the protesters and stormed the legislative council. to extreme use soft
violence and vandalism by protesters who stormed into the legislative council building over a period of time so this is something that we should seriously come down because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community at large will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it. katrina u. is in beijing with more on how the chinese government is reacting. chinese state media have begun broadcasting reports about the events of last night in hong kong but we're seeing very different pictures on chinese state media compared to what we saw on other channels for example the chinese state media broadcast very much focused on kerry land very much focus on her condemnation of this violence and also
focused on what the hong kong police have said probably criminal acts committed by these protesters beijing has very much said that they're going to back any investigation in any prosecution in pursuit of prosecution of of possible crimes that took place last night now here in china this is very much of the point of view that beijing is trying to get across that that these are not brave daring protesters who are frustrated these are fact probably just dogs and to emphasize that message what we did see here on chinese state media on 2 papers here english language chinese state media newspapers the 1st in global times an image not of protesters not of a trashed alleged car but of people having a very nice time celebrating the anniversary of hong kong's return to the mainland by gathering in and forming a sign that says i love hong kong and similarly on the front page of china daily we have a picture of some locals joining in with the chinese military officers to celebrate
the event and to say how happy they are about being part of the motherland so that is definitely the image that beijing would like to convey to the world trying to dismiss anything that happened last night is really nothing more than outliers and that's what we expect to hear more of when china's foreign ministry give a statement later on today let's go live now to hong kong and speak to wayne has what does the day after both those peaceful rallies in the more violent storming of the legislative council look like. you know sam it's been a remarkable transformation really just a few hours ago there were those scenes of absolute mayhem here on the streets around the legislative council building behind me basically hong kong's parliament and it has been an emphasis on the cleanup really so far on tuesday morning because there's the riot police moved into this area to clear the protesters away from the streets and also those that have gone inside the building itself forcing their way
all the way into the debating chamber inside the parliament building as they fled they left behind a huge amount of debris rubbish all over the street so that has been one of the focuses of tuesday morning is to clear the streets around this building the streets are open to traffic again the building itself though still very much cordoned off by police it suffered a lot of damage throughout the course of monday into tuesday morning as those protesters went in there they smashed through the glass windows and doors to get in there and it didn't end there once they were inside they spent a lot of time vandalizing parts of that building right in graffiti on the walls destroying internal doors and walls so the police are going through that building right now treating it as a crime scene they are building a case they say against anyone that they can identify that was inside that building
unlawfully so that is very much the focus at the moment and it will be some time before that building can reopen again because of the fairly extensive damage that was done to it a lot of head scratching going on no doubt what's next for the pro-democracy movement. yes i think this period will be a period of backing off to an extent this was such a peak in violence compared to what we've really seen over the past 3 weeks throughout the course of this anti-government movement these proteus on the streets of hong kong it was unprecedented what we saw take place on monday morning into the early hours of tuesday morning so i think both sides will certainly take a step backwards what we're hearing from the protesters from the anti-government protesters or at least pro-democracy politicians and activists is that the fight will certainly go on and the reason for that is that they're not getting what they want from the government led by hong kong's chief executive kerry lam
a big complaint is that this government led by her is simply not listening to their demands it started of course with that controversial extradition bill that would allow criminal suspects from hong kong to be sent to mainland china to face the justice system there but that was really just seen as the latest example of what the protesters view as beijing's increasing influence over the political system in hong kong they want kerry lamb to resign they want that extradition bill not just suspended as it is now but they wanted withdrawn altogether so far there is no sign of either of those things happening so i think in the long term we'll see more protests on the streets of hong kong all right thanks so much wayne hey there joshua wong is one of hong kong's most recognizable activists who was only recently released from prison after leading the protest movement he hopes the wider public can understand the frustration of protesters. at the same time if the lawmaker of hong kong people critically elected the bill can be so easy. but now. it's just
a puppet of beijing it's hard to fully agree and it's not good to encourage people to pay their. life and i hope people can have understand understand because when hong kong only 7000000 population 2 minas of then they deferred people to settle down peacefully parents hold the baby costs bring their children join the rallies sure to watch the show the voice of people beijing do you keep silence if the totally peaceful demonstration. how come youngster high school student younger than me they pay to live at recess and might face 10 years general terms even people might disagree i think that blame on them is not the way it's terminated withdraw to be 0 is the way out i strongly q re is
a run wonder and when people surveyed announce that my universe is small and 70 percent of people are not suspend they are still asking to withdraw it because people have no trust on paging and hong kong government so why not withdraw to be able to solve the political crisis generated by caroline. president donald trump is accusing iran of playing with fire that's after the un's nuclear watchdog confirmed stockpiling more enrich uranium than allowed by the 2015 nuclear deal washington is warning it will never allow to develop nuclear weapons and it will continue its maximum pressure campaign until long changes course. no person should iran they know what they're doing they know what they're playing with and i think they're playing with fire so no message to iran whatsoever iran's foreign minister
says that iran has the right to exceed the limits because the 2015 nuclear deal has not been upheld. as i've been informed iran has exceeded the 300 kilogram limit to enrich uranium we had previously announced they said we were transparent in saying what we are going to do we consider it our right reserved in the nuclear deal. per your coffee and. actions by the europeans have not been enough so we will move ahead with our plan we are in the process of doing out the 1st phase of action increasing our stockpile of enriched uranium as well as our heavy water reserves we have already announced a 2nd phase which would be surpassing the u. rhenium enrichment limit of 3.6 percent this will be our next step. john hendren has more from washington d.c. . president donald trump says iran is playing with fire that is after iran announced that it is violating the 2015 nuclear agreement the multi-national
agreement in which it set levels at which it could store stockpiles of uranium before that happened the white house put out a statement saying in part maximum pressure on the iranian regime will continue until its leaders alter their course of action the regime must end its nuclear ambitions and its malign behavior but responses have also been pouring in through the 280 character format of twitter from the administration we have secretary mike pompei oh the u.s. secretary of state saying the world's top sponsor of terrorism can never be allowed to enrich uranium at any level john bolton the national security adviser for the u.s. says there is no reason for iran to increase its enrichment unless it is part of an effort to reduce the breakout time to produce nuclear weapons there have also been responses from the democratic presidential candidates bernie sanders says he's pushed us to the brink of war with iran and kept us in the horrific saudi led war in yemen we need real diplomacy any club which our centrist candidate says now iran
is closer to a nuclear weapon than before trump took office this did not need to happen and we should negotiate back into the agreement that's the 2015 nuclear agreement the us has bailed out of n. joe biden the former vice president and leading candidate in the democratic presidential race says trump's iran policy has alienated us from our allies and taken us to the brink of another war in the middle east everything this president does is backwards this could end in a number of different ways with an agreement possibly between the u.s. and iran with a military conflict like the one that only days ago president trump said he was within 10 minutes of ordering or we could have the kind of prolonged standoff that we have right now. so dan's protested as a value. demonstrations they've called for nationwide civil disobedience later this month they blame the military leaders for the deaths during sunday's rallies 11
people were killed funeral processions were held for some of them hundreds of thousands of protesters were once again on the streets demanding the military hands over power to a civilian government in the process the they say they don't trust the transitional military council. and it will be made it clear to the ethiopian african mediation that there should be a time limit for the mediation process and it should not go on forever the struggle of the sudanese people will continue with its commitment to its peaceful methods until the objectives of the revolution are achieving are peaceful tools including negotiation will continue until the objectives of the revolution are cheap. well still ahead and i'll just 0. why it's a thumbs down from international monitors for albanians municipal elections and we'll tell you about a foreign invader choking nigeria's rivers and waterways. the

like me at. the water i think and then the process of my research using the educational metal. plants or what i sing. in water and this is my dislodged from roots and are now using it for their on their research work innocently using it for. something that might prove beneficial to nigeria as it struggles to generate electricity to power its factories and homes. back on the river you mean a model which is the weed will just disappear so the fish can return in numbers how much greece al-jazeera lagos. now stargazers are flocking to a small town in chile what they hope will be an exceptional viewing will be looking out for a total solar eclipse which is set to darken the skies over south america later on tuesday it will travel across parts of chile and argentina in
a journey lasting about 6 minutes our latin american editor lucien newman travelled to live where in chile the best place to see the rare event. the transparent skies of northern chile especially the cold kimble region have turned this into the world's astronomic capital. but scientists aren't the only ones rushing to witness a cosmic event that is drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors here to see a total solar eclipse people say well what's question without a why do you want to travel so far to say. after you see the eclipse you will know that this will be the american couples 16th have been chasing solar eclipses the world over in a full solar eclipse. the position of the moon appears to fully cover the sun turning day into night it occurs somewhere on our planet roughly every 18 months but they're all different depending on the new cation the position of the sun and
the clarity of the sky and maybe this french family just arrived from paris and says they expect this their 5th eclipse to be the best one yet yes it's an expensive hobby but once you see a full eclipse. you get addicted actually you want to see the next one. accommodation in tickle kimball and at the comma regions have been sold out for more than 6 months this is like a get up population $4000.00 where almost everybody is renting a room or their home or even just a little piece of land where people visitors can camp out and the reason is that this remote place has some of the best views of the stars of anywhere in the world and which according to astronomers will also give you some of the best deals all the eclipse. but for astronomers and physicists who also camped out here it's an opportunity to see elusive stars gather data or demonstrate the theory of
relativity through these telescopes so you will go to the better if you are able to see weak stars during a total eclipse we will be able to determine if the light is displaced and and demonstrate once again on stein's general theory of relativity and they said it's wonderful that's what sharon and byrne are bill cults have less ambitious expectations so i'm hoping to see stars in the daytime. if the weather cooperates as meteorologists predict she will more than likely get her wish. you see in human like good at chile. well let's have a look at the headlines here on al-jazeera china is calling overnight protests in hong kong a blatant challenge to the one country 2 systems principle that's the strongest condemnation from beijing since protesters stormed the city's main government
