I think the U. K has got to learn a lot about this. It was thought that South Korea was particularly good at the beginning because they were so well drilled in this kind of thing. Because they looked at the possibility of biological and chemical attack in their big national defense drills they had annually against a possible attack from the North, which might have been involved nuclear weapons. So there was that discipline, the words those protocols. That's why it's so worrying that they're not getting fully on top of it. This thing rolls on with mutations. Catherine. Yes, I agree.

And this is the newsroom from the BBC World Service. Satellites have picked up significant activity in North Korea at a site, where rocket tests have previously been launched. The development comes days after analysis that the regime in Pyongyang has reassembled its main rocket site following the collapse of talks with the US in Vietnam. Our correspondent Laura bicker is watching developments from the South Korean capital. So this is a site known as sun Dong, which is just outside Pyongyang. It's where North Korea has assembled most of its ballistic missiles and its intercontinental ballistic missiles, and where it's assembled it's gonna satellites and rockets for launch. There were reports from the National Intelligence Service director here in South Korea earlier this week where they talked about increased vehicle movement at the site. So a number of US experts have been looking at satellite images, and what is suggest. Is it? There's a lot of heavy vehicle. Traffic the kind of kind of vehicles that they've seen in the past that we're used to move either missiles or rockets for launch at this activities all thought to have started way before the summit between Kim Jong in and Donald Trump in Hanoi. When it comes to other reports earlier this week, you may remember that satellite images suggested that the satellite launch pad at. So he had also been rebuilt. The started dismantling it last year, then stopped and no it seems to be fully operational. According to US think tanks. So all of this together means the analysts are telling me that it's likely that North Korea is preparing for some kind of launch. So sort of reaction has there been so far? I think there will be disappointment when it was put to the State Department earlier this week during a briefing, the US State Department said that it would be inconsistent. Even a satellite launch would be inconsistent with the agreement. Switch between Kim Jong and Donald Trump. So what might Kim Jong UN be trying for here back in twenty seventeen before the kind of current deterrent. They had said that they want to launch some satellites. They told Russia that we're going to launch some satellites, but it may also be that Kim Jong and his pro during the Trump administration, maybe showing exactly what it can do not only can I dismantle my sites quickly at can rebuild them quickly. And it might just be tried to force the United States to come back with the deal by saying, look, I can breach this in some way by launching a satellite.

The Venezuelan people could die as a result of your negligence. Correspondent will grant is in the capital Caracas. And I asked him if the lights were back on yet. I think they are in some parts of the city. I've just taken a drive around Caracas, and certainly in some areas, it looked like a semblance of normality was returning. I would say certainly in the past couple of hours really still the majority of the city is in darkness and already getting reports that those that did have lighter collapsing again. So I think the best word is just patchy it's very very patchy at the moment. And therefore what is? The safety situation the security situation because as a city full of people without light must be quite a frightening place. This is a frightening place at the best of time. So yes, the combination is quite dangerous. And of course, this comes at a very tense time. Anyway, Venezuela, the political situation doesn't help matters. We're only a few hours away from that big launch demonstrations on the streets of Caracas. So you put all of it together. It's very combustible very volatile. You mentioned these big demonstrations which are being planned for Saturday by both pro and anti Maduro forces what sort of level of security, can we expect? Are there concerns that there could be clashes? I think the main thing for the city authorities in cadavers at least is to keep those two marches well apart there is real potential full clashes at any stage that said in two thousand seventeen a lot of people died over a hundred and forty on the streets have cut Akers. And I think nobody wants to see. Any kind of repetition of that. So for now, there's a lot of talk of sort of holding your ground or forcing the other group out of power. I think ordinary people are very wet. These are quite high stakes and that at least on the opposition side. They want us to be very peaceful demonstration showing that they are against the Maduro government. And of course, Mr. Maduro is probably equally aware of just how terribly would play in the eyes of the international community so much of which is lined up against him. If he's authority started firing on on on protest is. So that alone might stop any violence, but absolutely it's tense. It is a very very complicated and Novus time in Venezuela.
