ends it good malaria must go on so millions can live. to regret it but. this is you know really who's life for berlin on a knife edge clashes erupt at hong kong airport as pro-democracy protesters called flights for a 2nd day in a row police used pepper spray and for times trying to force their way into the building and hong kong chief executive gerry lamb warns that the city could be on a path of no return also coming up from radiation that in
a russian town authorities clean up the area amid fears that a recent explosion at a nearby rocket testing site involved nuclear materials and child labor in bolivia were kids work legally from the age of 10 that they could only dream of going to school. a very warm welcome to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and to our other viewers around the world chaotic scenes have unfolded at hong kong's international airport where dozens of rioters riot police clashed with pro-democracy demonstrators thousands of protesters return to the airport for a 2nd day in a row causing all the parts of flights to be canceled hong kong's chief executive
ward protesters that the city is on what she called a path of no return. it's shut down day too. was this serious anger from protesters towards the police i with protesters clearly losing their cool i. was demonstrators claim that this man was an undercover policeman i was and shortly afterwards he's attacked i was eventually medics secure his release. was. protesters continue to apologize to frustrated travelers was i was
right i don't know i was i carry lamb hong kong's leader is fearing or threatening the worst. hong kong society has become insecure unstable and violent no matter who's perpetrating violence it will push hong kong down a path of no return but. it will put hong kong society in a very anxious and dangerous situation. she was then harangued by journalists who want to know whether she's following beijing's orders speaking to d.w. news pro-democracy activist joshua one thinks beijing won't send in the people's liberation army standing you know into a hall call my just wrist out in the mh hall call it calling me and it would not only trick at this content of hong kong people but also a record high current might be if they satisfy because just got back at financial
market my 1st serious crack when pierre way were sent through a hall called protest sol i would that it's crystal clear now is that high well what we. just pay attention to all call they should not let people walk alone. but images from across the border suggest a showdown a visible military build up just 30 kilometers away over the border in stands in the question now is is this just a threat from beijing or will the chinese military actually move in. and felix at least spent 6 years as china correspondent for the berlin daily detoxed sayto he is with me here in the city here to talk about these very dramatic developments in hong kong let's pick up where that report left off of that video released by chinese authorities a build up of military vehicles along the border with hong kong has a lot of observers very worried my question to you because all eyes are now on
beijing that's where the real power lies when it comes to any possible future intervention i think really prepared to set boots on the ground while they're threatening they're threatening but i don't believe at this moment that they want to do that because actually beating doesn't want pictures which would remind the world of 1989 the massacre of chinon men. trashing the china democracy democracy movement. china is celebrating the seventy's and diversity on october 1st and they don't want terrible pictures before that because this is such a symbolic year for chinaman all these anniversaries are taking place all right now . if china were to move or intervene how much of a game changer with that be i mean would it be a tipping point this would be. a catastrophe i mean of course but also for china
and because so far china still has autonomy state for another 28 years it's supposed to have something a little at least a little bit similar to western democracy that's what. form the statesman once promised to the hong kong people and so far the promise is still. the promise is still. yes still valid but i wonder you know from the get go was this an untenable situation this whole idea of one country 2 systems you know can hong kong retain its unique character i mean really be swallowed up by china basically i think what nobody expected back then when they negotiated this contract that whole society would change i mean especially when i look at the young people they are pretty much raised as westerners they believe in democracy they share the
. democratic beliefs and they're more similar to people from europe or north america than similar to people in china i mean in china and this is a problem they they don't. they don't trust neither the hong kong government nor the china government and everyone expected that after this 50 years hong kong people would draw together with the chinese but. what happened is the opposite is the opposite has happened. how important is hong kong from mainland china it is still important not as important as it used to be i mean just looking at the numbers that used to be. almost 20 percent of the trade with the rest of the world between china and the rest of the world was going on. through hong kong now it's less than 3 percent so already by this you can see that the hong kong.
importance of hong kong is much less than 20 years ago and and there are other cities just across the border which was mentioned she has more successful economy knowledge more power you growth rates in hong kong holiday so it's getting harder for hong kong felix where do you see this going i mean both sides are just so entrenched in their respective positions do you feel that beijing is also partially to blame by how it handled the situation for its spiraling out of control absolutely i mean 5 years ago the people off hunger were already protesting wanting more democracy and it was a peaceful protest back then and beijing and the hong kong government did nothing since then made it even worth and now we see that the especially young people are frustrated and that's why i've had to in order to violent to felix
a leader who is the china correspondent for the berlin daily the toughest sidetone thank you for way thank you we turn our attention now to russia because authorities in that country tell people now to evacuated after a rocket explosion caused radiation levels to spike only to cancel the order just hours later adding to the mystery already surrounding the accident russia's state weather agency says the explosion which claimed the lives of 5 nuclear engineers last week caused radiation levels in the city of sanford offices to rise by up to 16 times of normal levels. and we asked our moscow bureau chief for your ear shadow how the accident was being reported by the russian media and he gave us this assessment. well russian media also have very little information about what happened exactly. the accident itself nor about the danger
for people in the area where it's happened according to the russian state whether engine see the radiation went up by 16 times last week or 30 you said it already directly after the explosion the ministry of defense in moscow had claim to there was no increase. to close to the explosion had reported a short term increase activity by the that then that information disappeared suddenly from the they are officials right so nearly a week has passed since the explosion and was to have almost no information about what happened and even today there has been contradictory information about whether the area has to be evacuated on or your rachet are were reporting from russia soldiers in portugal are driving fuel tankers to distribute gas because of an open ended strike by tanker drivers overpaid which has entered its 2nd day police
officers were also making deliveries because almost $500.00 gas stations have run dry the government has now imposed fuel rationing. fully laden and under police protection the convoy leaves a warehouse near lisbon this is how the portuguese government has been trying to guarantee a minimum amount of fuel is available for the country's drivers reluctantly the picket lines allow them through. u.s. . support to go i think this strike gives the impression to people abroad that portugal does not respect labor rights. if this so these people have their rights in the country the government and the companies are doing their best to limit the exercising of those rights. to take a drivers were just 17 hours a day. wage in an effort to change that they're protesting for the 2nd time and for
us during the strike fuel has been rationed pumping stations and special legal measures have been brought in to force drivers to deliver the minimum supplies after the government on monday complained refineries weren't doing enough. costa to scoop but the quarter meant that we noticed that particularly in the afternoon shift the unions that caused the strike and the work examples did not comply with the minimum services to terminate for example there was not one single supply port refinery service at the southern region of the country zinj said with them into sports steve oakley that's a super nice. 6 more than 14 tankers have left the seams are finery driven by soldiers. with no end date set for the strike portuguese drivers are having to be conservative at the pumps where the pumps aren't already running dry i. want to

imaginable. for years eastern congo has been wrecked by war. peacekeepers from the united nations with their distinctive blue helmets on the ground they don't need to could use to get around but scooters painted in the un kindness can be found this one's own public see claude giovanni he and his 2 could do are a familiar sight across the city but i'm not bothering about how much you could do like this because the area i travel through is home to many rich people from the u.n. it's really a mugger you know. he makes a roll of not transporting objects that might make his brilliance good to dirty but his work is the same as it is for all other to put in the driver's transporting heavy objects to customers. because i want to build us on
