"Islamist fighters have been laying siege since last week to the town of palma in northern. Mozambique near africa's largest ever private investment project over the weekend residents and foreign workers made desperate escape attempts by land and sea. Hundreds of people have attempted to flee the town running into forests and nearby villages. Two hundred civilians were sheltering inside the hotel in the town of palmer of the militant surrounded the compound and nearby natural gas project from french company. Total tell has been forced to suspend operations. Dozens have been killed and many more still unaccounted for. Some described harrowing scenes of streets and beaches littered with decapitated bodies. This insurgency has been terrorizing the country's kabo delgado province since two thousand seventeen earlier this month. America's government designated the insurgents as an arm of islamic state isis mozambique's violent extremist insurgency has re tactic in the countries coupled. Oh god oh province and killed more than thirteen hundred civilians. Isis mozambique's continued attacks. Have caused displacement of nearly six hundred seventy thousand persons within mozambique. This latest crisis suggests that the mozambican government is losing its ability to combat the violence when we last spoke about delgado about things were bad then and now. They're much worse john. Mcdermott is the economist. Chief africa correspondent twenty twenty saw more attacks by jihadist militia than in the previous two years combined and in recent months we've seen slew of reports. That war crimes had been committed by the militia. All told at least two thousand. Seven hundred people have died since the fighting began in the province. And what is it about the province that makes it ripe for this kind of insurgency through godot home to about two point. Three million people is tucked right into the northeast corner of mozambique as the crow flies. It's about two thousand five hundred kilometers away from the center of power. The capital maputo roughly the same distance. That kiev is way from london. So it looks more towards the swahili. Speaking islamic parts of east africa than the mostly catholic portuguese-speaking elites of makuto is also something of a wild west the haven for drug smugglers traffickers of all kinds and kabul gotta has a lot of resources both onshore in terms of rubies and timber in the lake but also offshore it has perhaps the largest store of liquid natural gas anywhere in africa. The ordinary people in cabo delgado have been locked out of formal and these informal economic opportunities. And so the jihadists said the american government are pointing a finger at a calling an arm of isis. Who are they most analysts. Who studied the conflict and cupboard ogato. We'll call the rebels are the answer are sooner or al-shabaab which is the same name. As the unrelated somali group the group evolved from a radical muslim sect. Angry at what they saw as kind of established muslim community that was to in cahoots with the mozambican elise mozambican state. That group was able to take advantage of those religious grievances but also the economic wants that i just mentioned because of kabul gaydos location. The group has always had close links to other cells and fundamentalists up the east african coast. So we know that. They've got close connections with people in drc kenya and in particular tanzania. The question however is still is it international jihadism. We're talking about or fundamentally local conflict. In my opinion the answer is probably both. How do you mean when. I was in kabul delgado about a year ago. No one was really talking about seeing the black flag of isis. When attacks happened or hearing people speaking arabic yet clearly the are some links there have been mutual pledges of affiliation between the mozambican group. And what is known as isis core in the middle east the may also be some personnel exchange and there may also be some financing links the. Us is not going into too much detail about what it knows and we do know that the links between an organization like isis core and its franchises is not a command and control one. It is more about taking the brand and therefore having the recruiting advantages that you might gain from being partly isis affiliation. So how does america's designating these jihadists as part of isis. Changed the calculus here. How how does that affect things. The designation won't have much of an effect unless you're dealing with the group if you fund or work with these groups than you cross. Us law but the designation reflects a sense in which the rest of the world is increasingly concerned about what is happening in kabul delgardo and wants to offer at least some help to the mozambican government that seems out of it stealth as well as it does ignition. America has agreed to train some mozambican troops france and portugal as well as the broader issue has offered assistance with training and some intelligence south africa. Says it stands ready to help with naval operations of the coast and various mercenary firms smelling the opportunity of lucrative. Here are also circling the government. But what if the government actually done here. The violence over the past few days seems to suggest they don't have a handle on the situation. When the conflict i began president philippi newsy dismissed the insurgents as bandits and was very slow to mount security response but in november mozambican tanzania signed a deal to stop the flow of fighters across the border and mr newsom has also tried to wrestle control of the conflict away from the police and give it to the army with which he has closer links in january. He appointed a new army chief. But even then things have gone slightly awry because that guy died a month later of covered and even while president newsy has been trying to do a bit more. He's had to deal with quite allegations from amnesty. International on other about what has government has been doing. The rights group has said that the army and the police have been involved in extrajudicial killings and torture on top of that. Amnesty says the the south african mercenaries hired by mozambique have been throwing hand grenades and firing indiscriminately into crowds of people so taken altogether. What's your view. How will this progress than the will seems to be there at least on on one side of this conflict while makoto seems to want help or this seems to want guns and money and training it has been rather tentative in how has approached the rest of the world it has pressed the bishop of tampa incredible humanitarian voice in the province to leave. The country is expelled a british journalist. Tom bowker who's doing some of the best work exposing what goes on in cupboard godot. The government has denied visas to un staff. All of these things. Add up to a government. That is worried about what would happen if outsiders see too much of the reality of cadeau and that attitude is not something that any designation can change. Thank you very much for joining. Thank you jason.

Multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle. Warhead moves used by missiles carrying model thermonuclear warheads. The international atomic energy agency says the islamic republic's explored various fusing aiming and firing systems designed to make its missiles more capable of reliably delivering a nuclear warhead the program centers around several missiles based on north korean technology to rogue states have been secretly working together on parallel nuclear weapons and delivery system programs for tehran.

Nuclear deal agreed by tehran. The united nations nuclear watchdog also concerned about a missing metal disc of uranium the type used in thermonuclear weapons and the location of other undeclared nuclear material. It's been missing since. Tehran began nuclear weapons research activities. The latest developments follow recent revelations that iran's enriching uranium up to twenty percent purity. That's will be on the three point. Six seven percent. It agreed to under the twenty fifteen united nations nuclear nonproliferation treaty. Tehran recently doubled. The number of advanced centrifuges that operates and it's begun introducing nine centrifuges which is some fifty times faster than those agreed to under the two thousand fifteen accord. Iran also recently switched on a new chain of thirty six centrifuges at its tans nuclear facility thereby doubling the number of working centrifuges there to sixty and allowing tehran to dramatically increase.

"Who's GonNa give you his inside look at what he witnessed from today stage in a look ahead of what to expect for. Tomorrow. But today stage I find out from Johann who's Truly as a student of the sport, as well as an educator that today stage was very significant historically. Hi Debbie yes do they stay stage finished in Leon? That's a you know a mid sized city in France, about six hundred, thousand people live in the on. Historically it's very important for the Tour de France because the very first stage. The very first finish place of the very first Tour de France in nineteen. Oh three finished in Leon. So, the first finishing place of of Any Tour de France ever was was finishing Leon Longtime ago of course one, hundred and seventy years ago. one but I mean the the the to France back then was It was really the tour of France re literally there wrote around France from they started in Paris. And they finished in Paris and It was two thousand, five hundred kilometers long and only six stages. So yeah, that's a bit of his bit of history there for you. Do you happen to know who won the first Tour de France Jabe? No I don't I i. Bet you knew though. About. I mean yeah I yeah. I do know it was a guy called Maurice Gotta Three of the six stages. including the first one and he wanted to France with almost three hours advantage on the second one. Imagine how that must have been Wow Why That's piece of history of the Tudor France they. That's a that's very interesting in which which out dates each other some of the class, one day classics or the Tour de France I'm guessing the classics. In terms of Total years of a how long ago it started which which are older. That you got me. I think. I. Think it must be I. Mean Classics Probably. Although I don't know about. I don't know about those monuments though but. I would I would. I would expect that one day racists. First and then they start at the half stage racists. I just. Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, I mean. Yeah eighteen ninety six was when Perry Ruby started for example. Oh. Wow. Okay. I didn't know that I mean I you know. I was more to to France writer classics writer. So I kind of have a little bit of excuse, but you got me. All right. Maybe people missed the very beginning of the race when the breakaway formed but Johanna you you caught it in observed something interesting going on with Sun Web It was actually a four-man break before it was the two men break that most of saw what was going on Yes. Yes. So from the beginning of the race, there were some attempts to to attack. And initially, it was Initiative were three guy. So it was this guy. Stefan Kuhn and then Edward Tunes from Text Radio and says bowl from somewhere. So there were three guys and then I was surprised to see you know that there was a Fort Guy? Who bridged across who came from the Peleton? Another son Guy. So, there was initially, there were already two writers son whip in the four-man breakaway. So obviously, you know they had a plan from from the start. these were not the guys that they were expecting to be in the final because the ball is a sprinter and the other guy was also You know one of the one of the guys of the leader train but curiously enough when the breakaway of four riders hat like a minute and a half two minutes. And they got the information from their team guard at Bora ounce or had started to set the tempo in the PALETTA. They could already think, okay they don't want. They don't want the the breakaway to go too far. And so these two riders, of Sun, WEAP- they just sat up and on the on their own. Their own decision they went back to the PENATTA. So. They didn't want to be all out front of Front there knowing that you know they had basically no chance to To, make it to the finish. So obviously, they this was part of the whole stat strategy of of Sun Web. Because I mean I think we can easily say today there's do teams of the day. First of all there's Boorda Hans Hospital for you know for what they did and for the way they are. Keeping fighting for that Green Jersey. and then at the end of Sun weapons on Web. Again, you know in the mazing an amazing right of them in the final. But. They have to have the legs. Of course, they had five riders in that selected group of whatever it was sixty seventy writers the final. And on top of that three of them were in the in the top ten and one of them won the state. So. Yeah I. Think this is a a good example Johann of a director doing a very good. You know the teams getting good instructions. They had a good plan going in and even with Bora. Pulling all day for Sun Web to attack like they did in as we said on the other show. The attacks. and win after Bora worked. All Day was pretty remarkable. So who who's leading son? Web. make an you know what I don't know there's there's a bunch of a bunch of young guys there I don't really know who the sport director is in the Tour de France but you know I mean there's two things Jeb. Team Strategy and you know you can have. A great plan then you can have a smart director and. But let's not forget you know the first and foremost condition is that the writers have to have the legs and it's clear that these guys are on roll. They're all writing really.

"Astronomers have discovered wooded piece to be the solar system's largest impact crater on the Jovian, moon getting made if confirmed, it would displace the two thousand, five, hundred kilometer wide south pole aching crater on Earth's moon, which currently holds the record as the solar system's largest impact crater. The new findings reported in the journal acres a based on a new detailed analysis of image data from this as voyages one and two spacecraft which visited. Gani. Meeting Nineteen, seventy, nine and nineteen eighty respectively as well as more recent images taken from this as Galileo mission which explore the Jovian system between nineteen, ninety, five, and two, thousand and three. The authors wanted to investigate the orientation and distribution of ancient tectonic troughs and farmers found on Ganymede. Surprisingly they discover that these trump's are actually concentrically distributed across most of the entire surface of Ganymede and this global distribution suggests there actually part of a single giant crater covering much of the Jovian moon the say the radio extent of the multi ring measured along the frozen moon's surface some seven, thousand, eight, hundred kilometers. Ganymede surface is categorized into two primary areas simply known as doctrine and bright terrain. The doctor terrains extremely owed with many craters as well as the trough formations. On the other hand. The bright terrain is comparatively recent with hardly any craters these two types of terrain not coherently arranged and randomly distributed getty meet surface. The fire is believed to be getting meets oldest geological features because they're only found on the duct terrain and there are many impact craters which were superimposed on top of them. Later on the study reanalysed the distribution of these Farah formations over Ganymede entire surface revealing for the first time that almost all of the fires were concentrically. Around a single point, the study showed that these I did indeed form giant concentric rings over the entire Moon from this. The author surmised that there's a giant multi ring impact crater, which covered the entire of getting made before the formation of the bright terrain areas. A similar ring structure. None of the Valhalla crater remains on the surface of Callisto another Jovian moon until now the valhalla crater is been the largest identified multi ringed. Crater in the Jovian system with a radius of approximately nineteen hundred kilometers based on the results of computer simulations. The study's authors from Kobe University, as well as Japan's National Institute of, technology, speculate the Guinea meads giant crater could have resulted from impact of a one hundred and fifty kilometer wide asteroid into getting meet surface at a speed of around twenty kilometers per second. They estimate that the impact occurred around forty million years ago. The European Space Agency's Jupiter icy moon. Explorer mission. which he slated to launch in twenty, twenty two and arrive in the Jovian System in two thousand and twenty.

"Of the things that you find out is the geological history of the moon. What other things are you learning from the lunar samples? We also learn about the history of volatile on the moon by volatile. I mean things that are gas to us or liquid so things like water on the moon. That's a really interesting topic. These days, we wanna know how much water was on other planets that helps us understand their geologic history. But it also helps guide future human lunar exploration, if we could live off the land and get her own water. We wouldn't have to bring it all the way from earth. So one of the things that were doing a lot is understanding the water content of lunar minerals, and trying to look for places at water may exist on the moon. Wow. That concept of water on the moon. You know it has no atmosphere. Where are they finding this water? The water is in multiple different places. And this is one of the great success stories of the policy. Apples is when the Apollo samples came back, and we analyze them with. Techniques that we had at the time we could not detect water in the samples. But then as time went on and are in a little techniques got better and better. We went back in analyze those again. We found very trace amounts of water in them. So there's Therese amounts of water in the lunar interior that come out in volcanic samples, there's a little bit. That's adhering to the surface of samples that comes from the solar wind. The solar wind is putting out hydrogen. There's oxygen in the rocks when that hydrogen slams into those rocks, makes tiny amounts of water. There's also water at the lunar poles Molina poser really special place, because there are places that are permanently shadowed. There's places that sunlight has never gotten to for two billion years, or maybe even four billion years, if anything gets in there like a comet or meteorite, that's bringing in water or water. That's hopping around on the surface it sticks there and it stays there and it builds up into big deposits, and we're very. Interested in those places where we might be able to dig those up and use them for astronauts, were, you know, the Apollo missions, were all pretty much Senator around the equator or at least low latitudes. So this concept of having water in the polls. How can that be? Why are they wire? Why are we seeing the cumulation of water there because at the polls, it's very cold narratives, very cold. Places is permanently. Shadowed craters, the lunar reconnaissance orbiter has Nesher the temperature of those permanently shadowed craters. And it's about twenty degrees Calvin that's colder than the surface of Pluto. So they're very cold there, right in our backyard. And they serve as traps that have those molecules, like water, carbon dioxide, Monja methane, they build up in those traps, whereas at the equator it gets very hot because the moon has no atmosphere. The sun, does B's down on it and those molecules turned into gases and they escape the moon. We're you know, we've been analyzing samples returned from the moon for fifty years. You would think we've known everything we can possibly know from that kind of analysis. But is that true? Is there other things that we can find out with the samples that we have the right? They came from a the nearside near the equator and that was because we wanted astronaut safety, we wanted them to come back to us safely. So we wanted to put them in places that are not dangerous with. There's lots of places on the moon that we have not sampled. We haven't sampled the whole far side of the moon. There's an enormous based on the far side of the moon called the south pole, aching base in that may have punched all the way down to the lunar mantle that would be a very exciting place to analyze samples from knowing you say based on how is that created a basin is a gigantic impact crater when you look up at the moon on a clear night on a full moon. There's big round black areas. Those are giant impact craters on the moon. We call those basins and. If you could see the far side, with your naked eye which you can't. But you can look on. L Arroyo as you can see their data. The south way could base in is the biggest impact crater in the inner solar system. It's two thousand five hundred kilometers across huge. In fact, gets its name from the fact that extends from the south pole to a small crater called Aken. That's. Based right basins on the moon are named for a features on either side, so hyphenated. How do you get these lunar samples? So we store them in our ration- facility at the Johnson Space Center. But is this a loan agreement or how's that work? Yeah. So the way that we get an analyzing samples is a pretty long odyssey. It's not something that happens overnight, first researcher would have an idea of something that they wanted to test with a lunar rock or something we won't to investigate in the lunar samples that comes from going to conferences, reading papers talking to our colleagues and trying to generate ideas that we can test with lunar rocks. We have eight hundred pounds as you said, but we're not getting anymore anytime soon so we treat that as a very precious resource. So when I want to request a lunar sample, I make sure that I cannot do the same kind of work on any other kind of rock, a can't do the same kind of work on a terrestrial analogue. The I really need that lunar rock. And then if given a lot of thought to the clinical protocol that I'm going to put into it. So I can use as little as possible, then I write a request and the request goes to a committee and the committee of other scientists who read all of the requests twice a year. They take requests. They read them all neighb- review them, and they say is important science. Can this be done in this laboratory? Are they making the best use of the lunar samples? They can. And the answer isn't always. Yes. But they will try to put you in touch with someone who can help you better your request. If the answer is, yes, then the curation staff at Johnson Space Center works to fulfil your request by cutting up samples or doling out samples. They put them in a little box or little vial. And then yes, it is alone agreement. We signed security protocol, so that we will take care of the samples will not let them out of our possession. And then we can only do the things that we said we were going to do we can't just willy nilly do any analysis. We want. Then when we're done with the analysis, we send those samples back to Johnson Space Center, and they keep them. And maybe someone else would wanna use them. Some day were, you know, some of the analysis, that's done is destructive. Can you actually propose to get access to a small sample and then destroyed in that analysis process is that okay? Yes. That is okay if you have a very good reason, so you need to demonstrate to the committee that you have a really good reason for doing destructive analysis. But yes many ever analyses are destructive a very small amounts of material. And when I did my dissertation, I actually calculated the monetary value on the street of the lunar material that I destroyed during my dissertation and it turned out to be only a few hundred dollars because the samples user, so small and were so careful with them Arthur, some samples in our cub that we've never really analyzed to any level. There are they're called pristine lunar samples when the policy came back. We took a portion of them and we put them into permanent storage for. For future generations to us when they come up with techniques that we couldn't even think about, in fact, we're going to open some of those we just had a call. Thank you, Jim and others at NASA headquarters, they decided to open some of those for the community now. And that was prompted in large part by some of the analysis techniques that we talked about earlier that found water in the lunar rocks. We have more analysis techniques that we can use now on Iraq's end. Hopefully we will see some of those results soon. So how many samples go out to the science community a year year? Thank there are hundreds of active sample. Researchers on, so I think there are tens of samples may be fifty or so samples every year, and they go all over the world, not just to the US to every country, all countries that want to anyone can request a sample. And if they have a good reason they can receive that temple where you know, it sounds like we haven't brought samples back from every place that we would like so we're on the moon. Would you lie? To get some additional samples in what will that tell us personally, I'm very interested in the history of impacts on the moon, and that is something that the policy opened up for us in a major way, we did not understand the role of impacts or the history impasse before we got the policy ampoules, but they've been a blessing curse. We formulated, some really interesting hypotheses based on those samples that there was a spike. It impacts that affected the earth and the moon. But now we know that those samples, they all came from the lunar nearside, they may all have been affected by one big basin. That formed at that time. So now we're re opening that idea were questioning our original hypothesis. And personally, I would like to have more samples from actual basins basin impact melt sheets now. That's very difficult because a lot of those have been covered by the salts so we're looking for places where maybe a little bit of milk. She just peeking through. Or maybe we hook up a two meter drill. Go up there and really get some good samples. Sounds great. You know as Nasr's moving now towards a really important program, going back to the moon is sample return part of that thinking absolutely like I said, in the beginning Russia, the US are sent robotic Rovers that got samples for us, and that is a lot less expensive than sending humans. Although you don't get the benefits of having humans on the moon. They're different from each other, but they're complementary. But I think that going to the far side, going to lots of different places on the moon. If we could have robotic sample return to some of these places it would just be a huge benefit, not only to our community, but to the planetary science community for figuring out how the moon works by extension, how other planets work. That's fantastic, or astronauts at will be going to the moon in the future. They just have to be trained in geology. They just have to be able to land and look for the right material and bring the right stuff back. Yes. And we got her doing some of that astronaut training alongside JSE that's.

In the wild today, this conic bears only found in a handful of mountain ranges in central China. So what did this drastic shrinking of territory due to the pundits, genetic diversity to find out a team of researchers sequenced DNA from a five thousand year old panda bone founded an area far south of where the animals now live? Analysis revealed the bone belonged to a member of a group of giant pundits that have now vanished. However, this extinct lineage, appears to have interbred with ancestors of the modern giant panda, several thousand years ago, the research is behind the word say that, although there is genetic diversity among modern panda populations. There was much more diversity in the species before the territory. Shrank read that paper over current biology.

We see the greatest density of craters basins on the far side, and that tells us the oldest terrains on the mooner located. They're the biggest impact crater on the moon that everyone agrees is an impact crater is just one called south pole aching basin. It's over two thousand kilometers across, and we think it's the oldest impact structure on the moon, ten full landed Elliott this year in the phone, common crater, a small dip within the south pole eight conveys in and it's Rover UT to set out to study the terrain around it using spectrometer.

However, what we found quite deeper from nearside Meyer was out. We found that the mailing compose off olive and a low caste impaired seen. So this is kind of surprising to us. The findings are unlike anything ever detected before in the news side samples. But they do much with evidence seem by Otis from above and the team have a theory about what they might be seeing.

And the latest scattered across the service by another impact, which created the nearby Vincent impact, crater his Bill again. It could very well be that the Chinese mission has managed to sample or at least understand some of the material that have come from the very deep interior the moon. Now, I will say with that said, there's some other possibilities, this may not necessarily be lunar, mantle. And they discuss that in the paper. But I think it's an exciting possibility..

"Producer Tom here in my shed. Now, we talked a lot in this series about the pro side of cycling starting to pay more attention to the world of endurance and venture cycling and other forms beyond. Nice seems to be a real trend. Real theme. Simon was talking there about rafters partnership with ear education. I and their plans to have an alternative cycling calendar feature in gravel racers and Jones races mountain bike racers. Also, it's not surprising. Then the Lackland Morton has returned to Johnson voice team for the upcoming season. Now like my more on as a little bit of a here. A little bit inspiration of mine, if you don't know Lackland he began his pro career with Jonathan voters when the team were known as Garmon shop, and he was hotly tipped as a stage race, but he kind of fell out of love with cycling. He struggled to find evasion. And in order to try and refine his mosier he sat on a ride from his home in Palma query. That's in New South Wales. Australia. To allow as rock. And he was accompanied on that trip by his brother Gus himself, a former cyclist, and they made the two thousand five hundred kilometer journey in twelve days, and it was documented in the film thereabouts. And it works the two brothers. Both ended up joining jelly belly for the twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen seasons and 2016 Lackland won both the tour of Utah and the tour of the healer. This is what brings it back to what we see with if education. I when those brothers signed jelly belly. They did. So with the condition that the team would allow them to the time and the space still go on this type of venture and have they've got on to make two more films in the data about series and luckily through doing that refound cycling, and he found his way back to the world tour I with team dimension data and now as mentioned this season coming up with F education. I and I said that star lack Lackland and Ghosh's rides have by myself. There's something infectious about watching them. Just ride for the fun of it. This why I think teams are wanting to explore the of cycling because there is captured something that is universal. I also quite like the way that Lackland rocks are biblical and denim shirt. Combo on the bike very fetching is a look I've totally ripped off myself. So if you haven't already then I urge you to check out there about films all three of them. And they're an example of something we seem to be seeing much more amongst pro cyclists that desire to rediscover their love of the bike by going on this kind of adventure. Anyway, that's enough of me being total Lackland more fan. Boy, let's hear him talking to Richard more. The drains like be able to raise world tour vents and then combined with some. Different more adventurous stuff that no one's really delved into you know, at the highest level of. So I. Kind of. So the open to new too good to pass up. I mean, you've been at the vanguard of this really with guess starting your whereabouts, filming and competed Leadville and things..

"This podcast. Welcome to the science our on. Roland Pease ready to head off on a grand tour of science, health and technology could see if the BBC were racing to the sun and to the edge of the solar system will be seeking music for the hawk. We'll be protecting crops from invasive species, but we are in danger of running out of gas is actually a world shortage of helium at the moment, and it's really important gas needed for kinds of applications. MRI machines, particle physics experiments are the one I work on. Sarah sources of it running out was actually a real problem. Well, that's the physics of it all, but my CD our guest today is science nights at Ainsworth here to keep my biosciences straight. You've got the qualifications, which I haven't. Actually, we do need that. We start with the new and very worrying outbreak of the abode of virus in the Democratic Republic of Congo is just two weeks ago, the authorities they had to Clinton early outbreak in the west of the country to be over that success was put down to the rapid response approach device after the poorly contained epidemic in west Africa in two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen, but now more than two and a half thousand kilometers way in north key province near the border of Uganda, they've been thirty six deaths as we record this program, some of which have already been confirmed as Ebola. It's the same strain as before, but the outbreaks probably not actually linked the problem in dealing with it as the deputy director of emergency preparedness. Peter Salama. The World Health Organization told Claudia Hammond is this outbreak is going to be far more challenging to contain and even riskier. For the medical staff involved. The outbreak is centered around Mela beco- health zone, and particularly around us Motown cooled, men Geena. That really is the epicenter of the outbreak. We are however, receiving notifications of suspected cases that go beyond this particular healthy area and health zone. So they're being investigated in there more than thirty suspected cases currently. That this outbreak is completely separate from the one that was only declared over a couple of weeks ago. Is it because it's it's so far away across the other side of the country. We don't have definitive evidence as yet, but nor do we have any reason to believe that these outbreaks connected the distance between Ecuador, province and north keeping provinces is around two thousand five hundred kilometers. We know that this outbreak is likely to have taken off towards the end of July, and there were no active cases in the Equitor outbreak. After early Jews, how worrying is this new outbreak? This outbreak is extremely concerning in the Ecuador outbreak. I spoke of number of complicating factors, logistics affected health workers were infected early, which is, of course a ruse fan publication. The fact that the sites were much close to forested area. The fact that we have multiple sides simultaneously to address in terms of outbreak response. The fact that we also had proximity to Buddha's. So in this outbreak in northern kiva province, we have all of the above, but above and beyond. All of that here, the biggest constraint is security. There are more than one hundred groups in the North Kivu province more than twenty highly active and there is of operation really of Aleppo. Unfortunately, we've many of the areas which we're going to have to cover to reach all of the context out of the eight million population of northern kiva. One million people are internally displaced, so it's a population on the move, so that must make it much more difficult to work with communities. If you've got communities. So broken up on areas of conflict, metro difficult, much of this province is in UN security level for and what that means in practice is that many of the roads will have to travel alone who require escorts. Now, staff will require security, pistol protective equipments and not just the regular PP. We're used to using any Bill. Outbreaks to protect from infection, and we'll be relying heavily on the UN to help us with negotiations if needs be with some of the armed groups in order to access the population. So what's going to happen next? So we have more than twenty people. Now in that critical town of Beni, which is our initial base of operations. We've established an incident management structure across the three levels of the organization. We've advanced funding to the field, so they have the resources to begin to respond..

They were hit by another, at least thirty four people are reported to have died in a fresh outbreak. In the northeast, the World Health Organization has begun a vaccination program to contain the deadly virus, but that's been complicated by the presence of multiple armed groups in the region. What more do we know about this latest outbreak? Alice porter takes up the story title. A forty four cases have been reported so far seventeen of these have been confirmed as Bella. Now this three really significant points to this latest outbreak. Now, the last one was an Ecuador province. Now that's in the west of the country. Two thousand five hundred kilometers away from this new outbreak in the north east of the country in north cuvee province. Now, this is a very populated area and there's a sort of unease with the way Birla keeps popping up. It keeps reappearing completely on the other side of the country from where it was previously. Now, this region North Kivu. This region crucially shares a border with Rwanda and Uganda, and there's worries. Bullock could infect other countries like we saw previously with a major outbreak between twenty fourteen and twenty sixteen, which killed more than eleven thousand people. But most significantly this area there is ready amass. If humanitarian crisis with over a million internally displaced people, they've been fleeing from ongoing violence between the military and splintered ethnic militias. So so many people are starving that they're very vulnerable ready and they're on the move there. So they may well seek refuge in Uganda. Burundi Tanzania, potentially bringing the deadly Abol of virus with them all that make it very difficult for aid agencies to access those in need. Yeah, absolutely. I mean health workers, they've got to figure out how to get safely into these aims to fight Bola and administer vaccines, some aid workers.
