11:13 am
we go through the day more heavy rain strong winds coming into nor that as a spy and again southern areas of france and really as we go through into sunday it remains very unsettled heavy rain through france still into germany and again look at this some particularly heavy downpours working their way again through italy on towards the balkans we could well have some localized flooding here and when it comes to some of the cities well london is mostly dry the winds have also ease to much is not too bad. his a little bit below the pot for this time of year rome time which is again a little bit cooler as you can see thunderstorms and rain on and off for the next few days that warmer across into book arrest. but. an image can change the way we see the womb if we had not seen this week with me talking about it it can spark mass action or serve the interests of the powerful he created this longing for

11:16 am
it's another night of the protests on the streets of. since the grand jury decided not to indict any police officer of the death of briana taylor it's another night of curfew too but there's a loophole this unitarian church downtown in louisville has declared itself a sanctuary and it is welcoming the protesters to come in during the curfew those who are not welcome other police officers on the national guard they're not allowed in here so therefore despite the curfew this place is going to have. as you might have heard food toilets water legal help jail support they say and transport shuttles for people who want to go home even despite the curfew because if they do step out of here it's very likely that the police could arrest them in the meantime as far as the case of brianna taylor is concerned there are still questions about how the grand jury came to the decision under suspicion is amongst his family and her lawyer is that the attorney general didn't give all the information to the
11:17 am

11:26 am
introduced to the wilds i 2022 catherine sorry argenziano. ok let's stay with that story went to sit down you know he's chief executive of a leading conservation organization called the african wildlife foundation he's in . uganda kut-o. simple you're welcome to al-jazeera why is the go to position on this get more young white rhinos up and running if you will and then put them into the wild why not keep them on a sanctuary someplace. no because that's not quite course artificialities i just watched misha a reader wants us to do all these these wonderful i did was and is to be in their own way or in order for them to provide they followed you call this in cities that didn't need some vibe but also all what you as an as as a human needs be able to create our own sort is that really what we need to do is
11:27 am
put them in there while. we are techie but the story all far of that go that way to try it out is the reader what what's going to happen if we don't take that weight steps just you know if you shoot it we had 3000. that exhibit is lived that is $62000.00 and we had declared the extinct we see that trend or not it was in africa how do the countries that are involved in this put together areas of protection with areas of policy because poaching still happens doesn't it. we went and we're devolved into a project out. or introduced the blood. started to be 3 only $98.00 and now there are $300.00 block right on the scene but it is sudden lot grow a process it requires government force governments other large logs so required
11:28 am
government participation would require the will the party says to be less such a return has to be provided but as such what is need to be for example what is subtle is what will be that national park a well known created a solution for littering was guided trade forwards but that government's role is very very important here the laws breaking the international cooperation on this because that by busy to national is out of africa so that traffic is done up across the board as a whole into that of the international markets so government's role in bringing the rest of the world to bear in the course of action is very very product for the party since i do so since i can what they're doing with the white rhino be applied successfully to other species. absolutely. trying to follow him but insists that putting the right resources and the right science behind but that's really not what what the biggest problem
