east timor in the aftermath of a devastating cycling and. i'm going to see a new in south central chile and coming up i'll explain why indigenous lying grabs and political violence are escalating out of control in just 3 to. no iran's president has held progress in these latest efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal hassan rouhani has called tuesday's talks in vienna a new success for his government to working groups of in session to discuss the possible lifting of u.s. sanctions as well as tehran's commitment to the deal and also on tuesday and iranian navy ship was attacked in the red sea it's still unclear who is responsible let's speak now to us a big case in the iranian capital tehran for us as of starting with this ship attack i know the details are sketchy but. what more do we know at this stage. what
10:02 am
we do know is that this ship was attacked sometime yesterday morning now is raining state t.v. is saying that this ship belonged to the iranian navy it was used as a base in the red sea it's been there for a number of years and it supports commandos that carry out operations to protect iranian merchant vessels and world tankers what the iranian state t.v. says is from piracy we believe that this there was a mine attached to this ship that caused an explosion and this is a number of attacks have taken place of an israeli ships over the last few months now there was a report saying that there has been some sort of covert clandestine war taking place in the seas between israel and iran although there's been no official confirmation from either israel or iran just last month israeli accuse iran of targeting a israeli ship with a missile but this is the 1st time iranian military ship has been targeted and
10:03 am
they are those that believe that this is an attempt by some to sabotage the those talks are taking place in vienna well i want to ask you more about that i said because as this all happens within the context of these talks terror ana said they've been constructive but they're still very sensitive at this stage. yes president hassan rouhani has been talking this morning and he was very upbeat he was addressing a cabinet meeting and he said that the talks were a success he said that the united states had been humbled he spoke about his own government's success in dealing with the sanctions and managing the economy just a few weeks ago he said these were some of the toughest years that he has ever seen but now he's saying that his government has been successful and he's very upbeat he seems very optimistic that there will be something from these talks that j.c. that 2015 nuclear deal will be saved but the context for this is that he's
10:04 am
presidency comes to an end in a few months time the presidential elections in june and that will be and after that it will be the end of his administration and he doesn't want to be remembered just a president that resided over a failed nuclear deal and wasn't able to deliver on his promises of lifting u.s. sanctions so he's very upbeat he wants this to work although the parliament is dominated by lawmakers that are against a deal but he sees it as a success and he from what we what we heard from him this morning it seems like he is saying that the u.s. is willing to rejoin the j.c. is the united states that wants direct and in direct talks and he's seeing this as a victory a subject there with a view for us from tehran thanks so much us. all to me where there are reports of security forces using live fire against protesters once again at least 8 people are believed to have been killed during a raid in the town of kalak that's in the northwest for more than 2 months now protesters have defied a lethal crackdown by security forces to continue to call for democracy more than
10:05 am
580 people have now been killed since the military seized power from elected leaders in a coup back in february scott hyla is across all these developments from bangkok and neighboring thailand for us scott this predawn raid very much in line with what we've seen emerge of the military strategy going forward it seems. it is and was and the reason for that is because of this bloody crackdown that we've seen right across myanmar over the last several weeks against these protest gatherings as well as the civil disobedience movement that is because they've been starting very earlier the protesters and obviously the security forces are responding to that to those early morning even predawn sometimes marches so that's probably what we're seeing why the military and the security forces went out so very early and stage this raid in cali you know this is an area right along the western border close to the western border with india kind of the northwestern
10:06 am
section of myanmar yes we're hearing that several have been killed these are from local media as well as posts on social media that's pretty much the only way you can really get information out of me and more right now one thing that's even more disturbing about this is that there are there is evidence at least again on social media and local media reporting that there is evidence from some of the wounds by some of those protesters that r.p.g. were used as rocket propelled grenades these are this shows a uptick in the weaponry used by the security forces so that's very concerning that you have yet to be confirmed but some local media saying that there are wounds consistent with the shrapnel that these r.p.g. s. are spread out once they're that made that miss something to watch what i see dr who heads that committee representing the ousted civilian government abroad he says they've compiled nearly 200000 pieces of evidence now of human rights abuses by the military what are they hoping lakshmi come out of that process. you
10:07 am
know what they're doing is they're presenting this you know the body of those ousted the democratically elected members of parliament and politicians ousted by the joint they have this group together the doctor saw kind of fronts and what they're going to do what he is going to participate in is they're going to submit this to a body an independent investigative body. and independent investigations in myanmar body specifically within the united nations in about he said about 180000 pieces of evidence that show again this is coming from dr sauce and that group that shows atrocities carried out by myanmar's military now i would imagine today what we're going to see or possibly hear and i don't i don't believe it's going to be an open meeting but we'll probably hear from dr sauce or members of that committee is that they've submitted this this detailed and then obviously have to be investigated by this body that's something that obviously will take quite some time but but it's a move by these you know these leaders this parallel government if you will kind of
10:08 am
advancing the investigation into what the military in myanmar in myanmar has been doing as well as the security forces over these last 2 weeks plus indeed at home accountability that ascot hydra across all of that for us from bangkok thanks so much scott. turning to the pandemic and brazil has recorded more than 4000 coronavirus deaths in a single day only the u.s. and peru have ever reach that threshold nearly 337000 people have died there since the start of this pandemic some cemeteries are now working around the clock to deal with the growing number of burials hospitals are overwhelmed and there are reports of people dying as they wait for treatment. we should have had stricter laws like in some other countries it would've been hard for people at that time we would have had a much lower number of deaths i think if people had stayed home the policy was stricter
10:09 am
on this although. there is still a lot of people to be vaccinated so we have to go faster act faster if they'd acted fast for the 1st stage of the pain demick they wouldn't be the state's right well judea ponce is an epidemiologist and he says brazil's health care system is on the verge of collapse. we have been struggling with controlling mobility in brazil people are still going to work people are still moving around and we have had a sequence of holidays where usually brazilians gather around with their families the latest of which was easter sunday we have also been seeing a very large number of infection for the past weeks and what we're seeing with the high number of deaths is a reflection of the infractions that happened 23 weeks ago we are seeing an increase well the factions have reached a plateau it seems but the deaths haven't started climbing so it seems like we are
10:10 am
still in for about 2 more weeks of increasing deaths we are seeing a higher number of people being infected and being sent to hospitals it does seem that we have people who are more susceptible to this new variant and that could explain the number of people that are being. that are suffering from the virus now it could also mean that the sense of self the bowl population to the wild time coronavirus has actually perished in the 1st waves or. the infections that we had before the present time but we are seeing of course cases that need more specialized hospital units so we need people who. or intubation and this affects a younger population as we're seeing now and i chill a is postponing the upcoming elections by a month because of this pandemic president sebastian pinera has signed

10:20 am
there is a time frame when depend on the circumstance of the time which would include what the terrorists are getting on the subject that you're but in here and so if there was say for example the subject was under control and handcuffed with this be authorized i would say no the defense argued in cross-examination that officers had to consider the possibility that even when it appeared to george floyd was unconscious there was still a threat earlier the court had from care yang a crisis training coordinator and he acknowledged that some police techniques were necessary but the policy was clear the policy requires save infeasible. and he insisted force should only be used when necessary the defense is trying to suggest that derek shoving did what was necessary to protect himself and his colleagues and the growing crowd complicated decisions on the ground the prosecution accepts the use of force is

escalating attacks into recovering and sister land and gaining territory control of the region. on monday they destroyed 2 and a half $1000000.00 worth of forestry equipment. but the com is no longer the only armed group operating in this vast region one radical groups have sprung up launching attacks taking over land and killing civilians last week a prominent chilean journalist and his cameraman ambushed and shot he barely escaped alive but the cameraman lost an eye which you with a we traveled to the conflict zone to meet becomes elusive leader. the 1st foreign news organization to do so when we're not in a condition of mind but the fact that there are other groups is something new in the scenario of confrontation between our people and the state than another member now we have nothing to do with the actions where lives were lost but we're not going to answer for other mcclatchy groups but we aren't going to condemn other
10:25 am

10:27 am
also not only spurred lang grabs but also put a political violence like what you see here. yes now now that it is shows us what's left of her family's business which provides services to forestry companies but that you get inside this harvester was the driver who was finally taken down and stripped of his means of employment. to drive on our roads is terrifying i use a bulletproof helmet invest the state has lost all control it's the wild west here . it's becoming an increasingly complex confrontation with an increasing number of actors on all sides of the conflict making efforts for a political solution more urgent than ever before. c.n.n. al-jazeera do you believe chile. airways has launched the wilds of fast fully vaccinated flies they missed a show that at travel can be safe even during this pandemic. is on board. these
10:28 am

10:30 am
mean there's a bit a sense of return to normal there's a lot of hopes i can see people really enjoying to fly looking out the window a lot of people have to travel for over a year so this flight hopefully is the start of the norm and we can all get back to our normal daily routine of life and this doctor is trying to make that happen in qatar so what i'll buy out is heading the country's vaccination drive and had a message for those who want to return to something approaching normality and hope this emphasizes the importance of vaccination. and i think it's a strong message by the airline of our national carrier. it's a great light with many people who are advocating vaccination. while this flight left and returned to doha without landing anywhere else it provided some hope that air travel can make a comeback in the.
