8:07 pm
heavy artillery and tank fire. but the russians are pushing and the intention is to take a pos of the east and the south essentially are land locking. ukraine to that. fighting is continuing and many people here have left this area. there are some of the supermarkets that are open, that i love there, the shelves, the empty, the accused actor perpetual stations is a limit and have a few people can actually buy. but like i said, it's very, very quiet. are very few people out on the streets. that's because most people fear that the russian push is still going on. the russians are still trying to take territory and they feel that in the next few days, there will be a further push from those troops are not far from here. in fact, around 18 kilometers. the u. n. chief has visited montalvan. it is home to the russian breakaway reaching of trans. yes, tree out there is concerned that russian forces could attempt to seize it to complete a land border back to russia and tony, the terry says, mold overs help with refugees from ukraine has been immense. for 9 may of all days,

surprise that he chose berlin once again after his re election as his 1st overseas trip. this is about a matter, michael, underlining what he sees is the fundamental importance of the franco german relationship, not just as a bilateral relationship. it also has a relationship which really defines in some ways was seen so often as the motor of the european union, both macro and all f shows the german chancellor said in their press conference together they felt that it was very important to reinforce and strengthen and bolster i. e u sovereignty in several areas, but particularly in the area of energy. very relevant at the moment, of course, in the context of the war in ukraine, the use trying to reduce it's a energy dependence on russia. but schultz, michael said that that was absolutely essential and vital. they also both pledged their ongoing support and commitment a to ukraine in its fight to for its own sovereignty. and they also said,
8:13 pm

8:23 pm

8:26 pm
i believe that this started as soon as they left power in 1986. but it looks like this year would be the year that they would be able to succeed in really returning back to power. while leaders and delegates are meeting in ivory coast as big as city abidjan to find ways to protect biodiversity. the main goal is to start fertile land becoming desert. the you and estimates $12000000.00 hectares is lost every year. nicholas hungry for some unaffected village in synagogues for door reaching on the edge of this, a hill in northern senegal is no dull day, no longer an oasis, but a village sinking in the sand. gone are the green pastures and vegetable gardens. it hasn't rained for almost 10 months. the villagers used to grow food. now they're going hungry. they're emaciated cattle look for what's left on the sand. hope for shambles. bark comes in the shape of a cloud high above. but will it rain?
8:27 pm
dorothy, villain! i don't think so. even when it rains it doesn't stick to the ground. it's gotten so hot. even birch dropped from the sky. it feels like the desert is moving forward, swallowing our village. and so the men are leaving on the move is onion, former brubaker game. he sold his land for a $1000.00 using the money to pay a trafficker to take him to spain by boat. he worked as a stonemason in malaga, constructing homes for british taurus before being caught and deported by spanish authorities. oh man room room. the situation is bad. it's bad for all of us. we can't go back to farming on the coast, people's homes being destroyed by the rising ocean. i am ready to try to go to europe again. and there are many more like me. are of some wonder what you, hon. oh, do fall, spend for years in a spanish prison for trafficking africans to spain. i don't think the proper people
8:28 pm
and not clean war but droughts. it's when there is no water, no rain for 8 to 9 months. there are more to purchase for europe. and so traffic is wet for that term of the year when people are desperate to do to crossing what these are for now, these men turned to fishing and found a we, but the catch is meagre. access to the waters are restricted because next year british petroleum will begin extracting liquid natural gas on their fissions. and this is behind me as a senegalese navy ship here not to protect the fishing vessels and fishermen from the rough sea, but rather to protect that b platform that you see in the distance. it is here, one of the biggest discovery of liquid natural gas in the last few decade. the problem is beneath that platform is a cold water, coral reef rich in bio diversity. and that's about to be destroyed. the discovery will bring some new jobs and revenue for senegal,
8:29 pm
but most here face an uncertain future, caught between a rising ocean and an expanding desert. nicholas hawk al jazeera and jodi northern senegal to south korea now where the wearing of mosques remain popular despite the government relaxing. corona virus was a week ago. robin's bride has moved from sol when mosque mandates have been lifted in other parts of the world that have been scenes of need jubilation, of finally dispensing with the things after 2 years of breathing. your own breath. but south korea went in and out last monday. but not outdoors were no longer mandatory, but only recommended. this was the result. from a few exceptions, most mast remaining firmly in place. it's now a week later time enough you would have thought for the message to be getting through. you don't have to wear it. no, none of it. i still have to wear
8:30 pm
a mask and doors. it's so inconvenient to take it off and put it back on again. i have not been infected yet, and i believe the virus can still spread to others, even outdoor cells. so what's going on, what's going on? i also want to take off the mask, because if i just think about my convenience and get infected, i could spread the virus to others. apart from some pandemic fatigue like anywhere else, south koreans have gained reputation in the past couple of years for public spirited cooperation that probably accounts for the continued mosque wearing. but this is also a society obsessed by looks. and it's thought that women have welcome the johns not to have to wear so much makeup, old men to shave so often. and then of course, with cosmetic surgery, being so popular here. it's thought some people may use the mask wearing as a way of having any number of procedures without anyone ever finding out.
8:31 pm
ah, hello again. i'm fully battle with the headlines on al jazeera president vladimir 14 has sold his soldiers in ukraine. they're fighting for the security of russia. thousands have been.
