and bottles of water trying to save one village is most precious eco systems from fires that have already destroyed more than 1300000 hectares of forest land. and we are huge trying to suffocate the fires with noise quitman or special training it's heartbreaking to see all the dead animals and lost flora. these unprecedented forest fires began a month ago for those in neighboring brazil this is the world's largest dried tropical forest what that means is that there is a very very thick and highly inflammable mattress of dry twigs and leaves and for example these seeds from a coconut tree the have oil inside them so when there's a fire this becomes explosive and the fire spreads from underneath the ground which is why you don't see so many flames but these are all burning cinders. these men and women have no training uniforms proper masks or other equipment they say they desperately need support from milk to counter the effects of smoke inhalation to

10:13 pm
constitution to allow burning in the air in these dry forest areas this was never allowed before and before that we can see a history of many years of laws which have led to more and more expansion into bolivia's largely untouched forest land areas give us some idea of how precious this area of rainforest in savannah is. well the tickets on a forest which is up in flames is unique in the world there is a lot of it in bolivia apparently a lot of house now being destroyed and there's a very very small amount in the muscle across a state in brazil apparently much of the bolivian pounds now has also been destroyed this is also you know incredibly important. globally and it's now spreading into the chucker dry forest which bolivia has the best dry forest the
10:14 pm
best chucker dry forest in the region it's seen in the highest quality up until now . and you know there's a been a lot of focus on the last supreme decree and also on laws 7 for one which allowed burning increase the area of banning from 5 hectares that you could now been over 2020 had has but we did an analysis in june which was published in june looking at the last 13 years of environmental policy in bolivia and what we see is that there are many many laws increasing the agricultural expansion for example plans to triple agricultural area published in 2015 pounds to expand biofuel published in 2018 and i should stress that this is not to feed the bolivian people. this is to but mostly to produce beef for export to china so just this year there was a huge announcement of the new beef deal which was being agreed with china and
10:15 pm
actually in the midst of the crisis in the midst of the fires the 1st 1000 tons of beef have been shipped to china amidst much celebration in the past and many libyan people have been protesting about that shipment. really good story too many thanks indeed for being with us clay woodley there in berlin. aurukun dorian is still on course to ruin the holiday weekend story about that more details now from meteorologist rob mccallum week yeah birthday and flurries major american but it's have a look it's progress when it went and it starts to decide bob is right went through the us version and it was just a tropical storms give you an idea that's what a tropical storm does a fair amount of flooding a good hour wind blow and a certain amount of damage usually it's minor damage that's tropical storm this thing is to growing from space it doesn't look very much preps are going ahead in florida several 100 kilometers of course away from it as the full cost takes showing in some shape that other is to doesn't get a proper eye but is

10:25 pm
one it seems that some of them may be related to organized crime and even other forms of crime and the alternatives and not doing a lot to mitigate the cases there's own was complete impunity for these crimes there are just a few. at around 10 cases in cords trying to punish this crime stand still 14000 people missing ok you say that there's always completed it beauty here is that is there no chance that of closure for the families of mexico says. that there isn't a good should they want to know they were out of their rugs and of course they want to see justice deliberate to them and they are asking very forcefully the government to do that and they will pressure the government to do that the families are the one trying to find bodies and trying to to find their relatives they are actually. becoming experts in forensic and going to the feeling very dangerous
10:26 pm
situations to look for illegal rapes callus really good story mary thanks for being with us that's understands nationals colors as whether they're in mexico city and. east timor is marking 20 years since it voted to become an independent state that been celebrations in the capital dili of what it emerged from a prattle against indonesian influence indonesia invaded the former portuguese colony in 1975 during the festivities a strait is prime minister scott morrison signed up to a maritime boundary treaty and investments in oil and gas well while east timor's rich in energy energy resources it still struggling to deal with violence between rival groups poverty and corruption almost half the population of 1300000 lives below the poverty line its economy almost entirely relies on oil and gas most recent figures show 90 percent of the government's revenue comes from the energy sector but that income is flat has fallen from nearly $4000000000.00 in 2012 the

less than half a 1000000000 in 2017 australia china and the u.s. are vying for influence attention asia's youngest democracy at the center of a regional power struggle david webster is a professor of history at bishop's university joins us now live from much of brooke in quebec good to have you with us david what's your overriding thought then on this the 20th anniversary of east timor's vote for independence well i think it's. overall thought is a success story the east timorese people 20 years ago today voted massively for independence as you've mentioned the events leading up to that are a group of big surprise that it's an unlikely state it wasn't supposed to go that way in 1975 the indonesian army invaded indonesia and next timor leste as its 27th province and for 24 years the international community whether politicians diplomats
10:28 pm
journalists academic experts they all said team reason dependence was a lost cause that it could never become independent that was impossible and yet it did the team mobilized on a whole variety of fields to seek their independence of the restoration of their independence that they declared in $75.00 their international supporters mobilized around the world and eventually want to diplomatic victory over the in the nation diplomatic corps and to me it says really there's no such thing as a lost causes in international politics citizen diplomacy can make a difference and change the course of events and that's a lesson worth drawing 20 years after the team reserve voted for independence in such large numbers that some of the young country and it is an ounce of a danger yes i mean to there are people who say that it's becoming a failed state. that has been said i think that's harmful rhetoric to be bandying about. 20 years after independence no country is perfect as you say poverty remains
10:29 pm
a massive problem in particular this is one of asia's poorest countries and that's partly the result of. more than 20 years of military occupation and the results of the violence since then however you do have what's rated by a number of observers of southeast asia's most democratic state you do have one of the few states in southeast asia that for instance has no difficulty holding a lesbian and gay pride parade they just held their 3rd version in july which was there are about 3000 people attending with no problems this is a free and open democratic society with several peaceful changes of power from one political party from one leader to another so i don't see a failed state in the making i see a state with a lot of challenges ahead of it but with a lot of resources amongst its people to meet those challenges successfully and go on to a better future professors really good stewards you many thanks indeed for being
10:30 pm
with us david webster that israel has revealed what it says is declassified intelligence outlining and raney and program to assemble precision guided missiles inside lebanon israeli troops remain on high alert near the lebanese border after hizbollah warned of an imminent strike does that is how the force that reports now from west receive them. on high alert but in protective posture israeli forces near lebanon have been pulled back from the border positions in recent days as they wait for a promised strike by hezbollah in response to recent israeli attacks and now israel is upping the pressure on both lebanon and hezbollah it's released what it says the details of an iranian led program to convert hezbollah missiles into precision guided weapons using components brought in by land sea and air its warning lebanon's government to take action will be held responsible for the suffering we are determined to toward this dangerous program the aim of the publication today is to clarify that we will not stand aside and allow our enemies to arm themselves
10:31 pm
with fatal weaponry i told them this week be careful and i repeated a narrow pick. hezbollah's leader hassan nasrallah has denied precision missiles are being manufactured inside lebanon he says israel has in recent days breached the rules of engagement in place since the last war between israel and lebanon in 2006 and. i said to the israeli army on the border from tonight stand guard and wait for us he was speaking shortly after 2 drones came down in a hezbollah stronghold in beirut one of them exploding there have been reports that an important component of hezbollah's missile system was damaged the israeli army has remained silent on the issue israel has for years been targeting iranian interests in syria last weekend it said it prevented a multiple drone attack from inside the country by launching an as strike that killed 2 has been our fighters there the united states recently confirmed that
10:32 pm
israel was also carrying out air strikes inside iraq targeting iran's missile supply route there but the more widespread and more admitted israel's actions become more risky but its adversaries feel compelled to retaliate risking in turn a broader escalation that's in line israel's prime minister fighting an election and once again promoting his ability to keep israelis safe as long tried not to cross this week he told by name to calm down i think they said now absolutely does not want. military confrontation i think the call to calm down was reflected that on the other hand i think the feeling and it's beyond that and you know i think the feeling in israel is that you cannot have iran which is declare it really interested in the demise of israel to deepen its military capabilities just across israel's northern border. for now on that border the wait continues for hezbollah to make its next move harris will sit i'll just 0 west jerusalem the u.s.
