Sudan declares state of emergency over deadly floods

"Sudan has declared a three month state of emergency after unusually heavy seasonal rains that have led to flooding and loss of life and left tens of thousands of people homeless. Tenaga Chip Coto is deputy director of the UN's humanitarian agency Gauche in the Sudanese capital Khartoum. They're flooding has affected over half a million people and then houses that have been totally partially damaged or collapse was over 100,000. So you can you can tell this quite big is affecting the whole country. But it hasn't to say this is the flood period for her, too, But they say it has been way above the norm. So that's why I'm having this impact currently, and it's the flooding caused by hours of torrential rain or or the flooding of the river Nile. It's both. It's both. So if you look at the western parts of the country that's been affected is more your your flash flooding and you get rain's coming incident but also upstream and when the action for blue now is utopia so intimate, so Pia impacting us quite a lot. AM River Banks being briefed, for instance, the Luminal midst the wet now, which is in factual, that area is overflowing and affecting a large area in hunting itself. And those people who have lost their homes, both local residents, and of course, I would imagine lots of refugees and internally displaced people who've lost their shelter. What provisions is being made for them. So before the rains is mentioned, we have joined season so every year we prepared beforehand we preposition our stocks in strategic areas. So areas where you have your displaced people. As you know, Sudan is about more troubling people at this place because ofthe conflict we have drifted. Jesus. Well, bumping one million refugees in Sudan is well and also in certain areas where we know that flood in the regular basis. So the stocks have them The only challenge you having these days that the rains have been way more. Then we expected so as a result, this talk that we had preposition now running law. We all scores a second. And imagine the health system mistress as well. When you have your reins, people need your your medical medical support, but also looking at issues around your your cholera. When there's rain get cholera. You also have your malaria. Making sure people get water to drink is also a big issue in some areas that are flooded. Schools have been flooded and Children to go back to school. So there are a lot of things that are going on most people who are affected along the river. Now they're seeking shelter with strangers, relatives and then is only the ones that do not money to go to friend's urges, or we're friends relate to that as well. Those are the ones that have been sheltered, using tense or you know the concrete buildings. Is there? Um, any silver lining to this particular dark cloud all the rains welcoming away after a period all the drought. The rain's always always bring in good myself. Agriculture. And also for animals. It means that I wasn't able to have grazing land. But right now we don't know what's more. Is it away the stage where it has caused a lot of damage for the compliments because there are some crops that underwater so The impact is yet to assist. As you can imagine. The focus right now is to measure that lives are saved. But that said, I think this is all happened in a country where the economy is that performing too well. It's been in decline for quite a while. We have coffee like any other country. There's competition in the cases of over there around 13,000 cases and slept over 800. Kids were also having a not breaking polio, so a lot of things that are going on and this is adding a layer off neat. We have not seen the end of the rings, so we expect more flooding for the next two or three weeks. Soldiers stop point is really required.

Herodotus - the Animals of Ancient Egypt

"Ancient times. Crocodiles were common in Egypt. These days Egypt does not have many crocodiles as they can't swim. Pass the great concrete. As when damn that now blocks the River Nile but here auditors sore these fierce reptiles snoozing with their mouths open on the banks of the Nile and he noted that small birds sometimes hopped inside the crocs mouths and picked up bits of food from between their teeth. This type of bird is called the Egyptian plover and it still cleans crocodile's teeth for them. Herodotus describes how the crocodiles grows into an enormous animal after hatching out of a tiny egg he says it has is like a pigs and it's huge teeth. Stick out of its mouth. Well he gets some of his fax. Almost not quite correct for instance. He says the crocodile does not eat anything during four months of winter. Actually it does eat but not very much during that time. He also says that the crocodile does not have a tongue in fact it does have one but it's rather small he tells us that some Egyptians held crocodiles to be sacred which means they worshiped him. Like gods those who celebrated crocodiles brought them up at home presumably in something like a bathtub. They decorated their pet crocs with earrings and bracelets for their feet other Egyptians in my view the more sensible ones saw crocodiles as dangerous enemies and even ate them when they got the chance. They used pigs as bait to hunt crocodiles. Some Egyptians also thought that hippopotamuses were sacred. Her auditors probably did not see these creatures for himself. He claimed that hippos had Maine's entails like horses and nayed like them to. He also thought that their hooves were cloven. Split like a bulls. It's not hard to see where he got. These mistaken ideas from the word hippopotamus comes from two Greek words meaning horse and posthumous meaning river so hippopotamus means river horse. He also told us that authors lived in the Nile in those days and in fact ancient Egyptians made statues of waters standing up as if they were praying. Then he tells us that there's a sacred bird which is not seen with his own eyes but only in paintings the feathers of this remarkable bird where red and speckled with gold it was shaped something like an eagle. This was called the Phoenix. The Phoenix lived most of the time in Arabia and was a very rare visitor to Egypt once about every five hundred years when his father died the Phoenix made an egg out of myrrh which is a perfumed gum or resin from the trunk of a tree. He hollowed out the egg and put his father inside it before carrying him to the Temple of the sun in Halio Palace in Egypt where it buried him. Even Herodotus can't bring himself actually to believe this Tall Tale in truth the Phoenix is a mythical bird that does not exist at all. He also tells us about a harmless Egyptian snake with two horns on its head please. Snakes were sacred to the Egyptians when they died they were buried in the temple of Zeus. Whose name was a raw or Eytam the Sun God. He also tells us about tiny snakes which flew every spring from Arabia to Egypt. He has surely thinking about locusts which alike grasshoppers they're described in the Bible as coming to play the Egyptians according to Herodotus a sacred type of bird called the abyss defends Egypt from flying snakes it describes that abyss as having the legs of a crane and along hooked beak Japan's particularly revered the abyss because it fought off the flying snakes. Well those are some of the wild animals and birds that option is considered to be sacred but the most sacred animal of all for ancient. Egyptians was the cow or bull.

"Dedicated to Sacha Hello this is Bertie and I'm here with some history from the ancient world inspired led by the Greek historian Herodotus but I I have a quick message with spinning off my herodotus series into a separate podcast golden all the naturally Herodotus so if you want to catch future additions of Herodotus please subscribe to her auditors in I tunes stitcher. Google play or your favorite podcast APP. Previously I've been telling you about the incredible empire built by the ancient the Persians when their great leader Cyrus died five hundred thirty years before the birth of Christ his son combine sees took over all all the lands that he had amassed including much of what we now call the Middle East young combine cheese set his sights on conquering one of the oldest oldest richest and most mysterious kingdoms of the world Egypt Herodotus visited Egypt when it was ruled by the Persians and and in the second book of his history's he describes what he found there he famously called Egypt the gift of the Nile which is why in this episode. I'm going to be focusing on the River Nile as you may know. The Nile is the longest river in Africa and indeed the longest river in the world. It is over four thousand miles in length. People have been wondering since ancient Egyptian Times where Africa's Greatest River begins gins in fact there are two niles the White Nile and the Blue Nile which join at Khartoum in Sudan and become one great river which flows onto Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea but where is the source of the Nile a learner dejection the scribe of the Sacred Acreage Treasury of Athena otherwise known as the Egyptian goddess of Neigheth told Herodotus this following theory about the source of the Nile. There was a border town in the south of Ancient Egypt called the elephant or Elephantine. It was an island in the River Nile shaped like an elephants Tusk and is now part of the Egyptian city of us when the rapids were very fierce around the island and it was impossible to travel by boat along this part of the river the local God was consume whose head was the shape of a ram which is a male sheep and who supposedly Rosalie watched over the source of the Nile he was often shown holding a jar from which flowed a stream of water according to the learning learned scribe the waters of the Nile float up from the bottomless pit hidden below the swirling whirlpools at Elephantine Egyptian King Sam Medicos allegedly proved the pit went down for ever the ordered his servants to make a long long rope and to lower it down into the pit. They could find no bottom to it. The scribe told Herodotus that half the water from the pit flowed over Egypt and to the north and the other half to the south and down to Ethiopia. This was of course absurd the Nile only flows in one direction from south to north but it is true that Elephantine was the place where the Nile entered Egypt Herodotus has another story that suggested that the Nile L. flowed from Ethiopia. He recorded that an army of Agip Shin soldiers deserted their commanders and marched into Ethiopia there. They helped the king of the Theo Paeans defeat some of his own soldiers who were rebelling against him as a reward. The king allowed the Egyptians wins to settle around a lake. That is the source of the Nile Herodotus says it took four months to travel along the Nile from Egypt by water and land to this place and it is actually true that the source of the Blue Nile starts in Lake Tana in Ethiopia but the ancient Egyptians did not know that the longer prong of the river the White Nile starts even further south with a big source rising in Lake Victoria in Uganda and smaller streams flowing in from Rwanda and Burundi as late as Victorian. We're in times English explorers like Burton speak can livingstone trump away through the deep forests of eastern Central Africa in a race to discover the true source of off the Nile. Although the start of the Nile was very mysterious to the Egyptians they of course knew all about how it flowed into the Mediterranean Sea. A large part of ancient Egypt was in the Delta region of the Nile. This is where the river looks a little like the flat palm of your hand and with fingers pointing out into the sea in between the water channels. The land was very fertile and was one of the best places on earth for growing ruining crops by the way the American city of Memphis Tennessee on the banks of the River Mississippi is named after the ancient Egyptian capital to Memphis on the River Nile. Both cities are at the head of the Fertile Delta regions of great rivers so the name sharing between an American city and an ancient Egyptian. One is no coincidence for most of history. The Nile has flooded its banks in Egypt between the months of June on September. The annual flooding only stopped when President Nasser of Egypt built the giant concrete as when dam in the nineteen sixties not far from ancient elephantine the annual flooding the Nile watered all the lands on either side and made it very easy to grow crops her auditor says says that unlike almost anywhere else in the world the Gypsies had no need to break up the fields with plows all they had to do was wait until the Nile at finished flooding and then scatter seed on the ground afterwards they would let pigs loose to trample the seed into the earth naturally herodotus. I just wondered why the Nile flooded he considered various theories put forward by fellow Greeks who wanted to gain a reputation for being clever according to one theory which she thought was idiotic every summer when the snows melt in the mountains of Ethiopia water flows into the Nile and travels down into the sea through Egypt her auditors could not believe that there could be snow in a place as hot as Africa even though this is what actually actually happens and is the correct answer to the question by the Nile flooded. The idea he favoured was more fanciful he he believed that in winter the blustery north wind blew the sun through the sky to Egypt when it was there it sucked up the waters that flooded over the Egyptian chip fields. That's why the waters of the Nile were low in winter. He's clearly describing how water evaporates in the sun but in summer so oh he said the sun returned to its normal position in the sky and the Nile filled up again with water and overflowed its banks by the way just in case anyone is wondering it's definitely not true that the sun is blown across the sky by the wind herodotus got that wrong but it is interesting interesting to see how he thought over various theories even today about ninety five percent of Egypt's population live within twelve miles of the river were it not for the river and the rich black earth which swept it up the amazing civilization of ancient Egypt would never have existed an so herodotus was right to say that Egypt is the gift of the River Nile and I'm going to drop in a personal note note here my eight year old son. Sasha is fascinated by the source of the Nile his absolute favorite TV program ever is the top gear Africa special in which the car maniacs clocks and Hammond and may go searching through Uganda and Rwanda for the source of the Nile. He must have watched it it. A thousand times is other great interest is cars in fact his first word was car and his favorite song by the way is Africa by toto and so that is why I'm going to dedicate this episode of Herodotus to my son Sasha who has a long standing ending and great interest in the River Nile and if you would like to hear future episodes.

Yes, these are charges against the former president regarding corruption and money laundering. They found few million dollars in his house when they searched after he was toppled. He was taken to Cobra prison a prison in her to north just north of the of the capital town of tomb yesterday. He was transferred to prosecutor's office in courtoom to face these charges now embar, we mentioned a couple of things that we know about the June third massacre. Can you help us understand more of the details? In terms of what actually happened that day this was a scene were in, in front of the army courses took place at any given time. They were several hundred thousand people there. Young people come at night. They congregate. In front of the army headquarters. They chan- the talk and they are severe speaker corners. They're talking about democracy and human rights and celebrating the revolution. Basically, they've been out in the streets for four five months. So that was a festive kind of spirit, and they went to bed a lotta people who sleep there, several tens of thousands of them sleep there, they were attacked in the morning by around four thirty in the morning, military brandishing machineguns and the spring bullets randomly over one hundred people were killed there. We don't know which number of people were burned in aside, some of these stents, a number of people were killed, and their bodies were dumped in the river Nile. So it was a chaotic scene. It was a sad sets at police. And when people are facing. You know, the celebration of the end the from that, and they, you know, some families those their loved ones. It was a scene of carnage, the whole place that was festive for for weeks. Ten into one of the most gruesome, scenes that anybody can think about it, and then literal council is responsible for that. And I almost hesitant to ask, whether you expect that any of the perpetrators will be held accountable for this massacre. Very much, though, that may be would find this give good here and there and this brings us back to what she was doing and these units, who are doing so she is going to face serious, or he will be extracted to the international crewmen corridor. He rightly belong for to face charges of genocide must trusted son or crimes money of these generals are going to be named with him because they were his arm that executed this. So we assume that if they were trying to take shooter two more serious charges. I think, you know, the house, of course of the military council is gonna crumble. We're talking about the recent human rights abuses in Sudan..
