tens of thousands of people in cities across brazil have been protesting against the government of presidentjair bolsonaro, calling for his resignation over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. the demonstrations were triggered by recent allegations of corruption involving the purchase of vaccines by the health ministry. mr bolsonaro denies any wrongdoing. iamjoined by i am joined by a reporterfrom bbc brazil. you were at the protest earlier, give us a sense of what they were like, what was the atmosphere, what was the mood light? i'm back from the protest here in sao paulo. itjust started about two hours ago so it is still picking up. it is very vibrant and very full of people. the audience is quite different from the pro bolsonaro protest that we have seen recently, which one mostly middle—aged and elderly people. this was quite a

9:08 pm
the highest—ranked priest in the vatican to be indicted over alleged financial crimes. a judge in the vatican ordered the cardinal and nine others to stand trial on charges of embezzlement, money—laundering, fraud, extortion and abuse of office. they include his former secretary and the former heads of the vatican's financial intelligence unit. cardinal becciu has denied wrongdoing. two bodies have been found after a powerful mudslide hit the japanese city of atami. around 20 people are still missing. the city is southwest of tokyo, in shizuoka prefecture and is a popular hot—spring resort. it's had more rainfall in the first three days ofjuly than it usually sees in the whole month. sodaba haidare reports. this is the aftermath of the mudslide in the city of atami. knocking down and crushing homes
9:09 pm
and sweeping away cars. officials say the mudslide struck at 10:30am local time, leaving thousands of houses without power. atami is known for its hot springs and holiday resorts. it is in the same region as the famous mount fuji, which usually attracts over a million visitors every year, but there are fear tourism already affected by the coronavirus pandemic could be further impacted. atami is a favourite place not even for people from shizuoka but people from tokyo and kanagawa and chiba, in the tokyo area. so basically, it is going to give out a lot of negative connotation and fear which means that psychological negativity will bear possibly a further hit on the already burdened tourist industry in the eastern part of shizuoka which is in atami.
9:10 pm
the region has seen heavy rains and flooding since friday. japan's prime minister is putting together an emergency task force while rescue workers on the ground are still searching for the missing. residents in parts of three prefectures, shizuoka, kanagawa and chiba, have been ordered to evacuate following warnings of further flooding in low—lying areas. japan is prone to mudslides and flooding during its annual rainy season, but the heavy rainfall is getting more intense and destructive each year which has been linked to climate change. dozens of people were killed in flooding in july last year, with more than 200 dying in 2018 when parts of western japan were inundated by bad weather. sodaba hadaire, bbc news. the canadian military is on standby to help evacuate towns

and fight more than 170 wildfires fueled by a record—smashing heat wave and tinder—dry conditions as the government in ottawa warned of a "long and challenging summer" ahead. at least 177 fires were active in the western province of british columbia, 76 of them sparked in the last two days, officials said. most were caused by intense lightning storms. canadian documentary film—maker, and reporter, brandy yan—chick updated us on the situation. in alberta, there is still a heat warning. it is hot here. i've been living in my basement for a week. people don't have air conditioning units. most people. so they've covered their windows, they are using fans, it is a very challenging situation for us because we are used to the cold, to be honest with you, and we are not used to these high temperatures. it is a very challenging time for those who are living on the streets, who are homeless, and people are volunteering, giving out water and pizza,
9:12 pm
and also the city of edmonton has opened recreation centres, libraries, places for people to cool down in air conditioning. and in terms of the fires, we are seeing pictures now ofjust one of them, and the intense smoke that is billowing across large parts of canada, and ijust wonder how bad things are, in terms of those fires, where you are. have you heard anything about that? so, at the moment, everyone is concentrating on british columbia because there are all these active fires that are happening there. different communities are being evacuated. in edmonton, what is happening in is the safety minister has announced there will be a basic set up here so that firefighters can have a place to have a bit of relief, there can be aviation resources available, and if there are more people who have to be evacuated,
9:13 pm
they would come to edmonton, which is in alberta, the province decide. it is a very scary time for people in british columbia. i know friends are watching the news and trying to see how close these fires are coming to their communities. kamloops has been evacuated and they can go home. it is a very scary time in alberta. it is possible, i mean, it is very dry here, that we could also have forest fires which we have had in the past. and in terms of the military efforts, what more do we know about what they will be doing and how that will help? so, there are about 350 military personnel who have been deployed to help fight the forest fires. they are going to be here this summer because this is not just a one—time thing. i know we have had this heatwave but this is going to be a very challenging summer and conditions are dry so if there is a lightning storm and lightning hits a bunch of grass, i mean, it is like hitting a match, right?
9:14 pm
it's awful. so, 350 military personnel are being deployed. we have the space in edmonton where people will be able to be evacuated to and aviation resources are being made available. and the government of canada has said that they are going to help out and give as many resources as possible to this situation, which is very scary. imagine, you have a house, and itjust burns to the ground, and you have to evacuate. it is just awful. in the us state of florida, officials are bringing forward plans to demolish the remains of a building that collapsed just over a week ago, killing at least 2a people. an approaching tropical storm is forecast to hit the miami beach area late on sunday night. there are fears it could bring down what remains of the twelve—storey building, putting rescue workers at risk. two more bodies were found in the rubble overnight — 124 people are still missing.
9:15 pm
the storm has already lashed parts of barbados and it has prompted the authorities in haiti to order people to leave their homes. haiti is particularly vulnerable to flooding and landslides because of heavy deforestation. the headlines on bbc news... england lead against ukraine, as the two sides battle it out for a place in semi—finals of the euros the winners of that game will play demark — who earlier made it through to their first euro semi—final in 25 years after victory against czech republic. the initial thinking about the ransomware attack, joe biden says
9:16 pm
they think it was not the russian government but they are not sure. check out began crashing on friday evening. the height —— the hack first targeted a florida —based it company kaseya. kaseya is urging customers to use its data visualisation tool to immediately shut down their servers. 0ur cyber reporter explains how severe the attack is. i reporter explains how severe the attack is. ~ :, , reporter explains how severe the attack is. ~ ., , , ., attack is. i think many people would be unfamiliar— attack is. i think many people would be unfamiliar with _ attack is. i think many people would be unfamiliar with the _ attack is. i think many people would be unfamiliar with the name - attack is. i think many people would be unfamiliar with the name kaseya| be unfamiliar with the name kaseya but it is one of these companies that actually is massive and it is used by lots of other companies around the world and that is why this is so serious because it usually ransomware attack involves hackers gaining access to a computer system and they can take weeks or months to gain access to that system and then when they are ready, they will encrypt the network and take over and hijack the system and then demanded payment from the victim. in
9:17 pm
this case, they have gone after kaseya and they have effectively taken victims of their entire supply chain. there is a figure going around at the moment by this cybersecurity company that seems to be a top of the situation, huntress labs, but says around 200 companies that use kaseya have been affected by it. it is normally one of the stories that is a big deal and a bit concerned but now we are seeing a company that everyone does know and thatis company that everyone does know and that is co—op, a massive company in europe, in the uk, and a massive play in sweden, in terms of supermarkets there, something like 20% of all food sold in supermarkets in sweden is done through the co—op and now we are seeing that the co—op, even though it doesn't use kaseya directly, it uses a company that uses kaseya, they have had to close around 500 of their stores in the country and that is a massive impact on not only the company but also people trying to buy their groceries. also people trying to buy their aroceries. : , ., also people trying to buy their groceries-— also people trying to buy their aroceries. : , ., ., , , groceries. any idea who is behind the attack? _

dollars. the supermarket morrisons has agreed a takeover deal worth six—point—three billion pounds. the bid is from a new company backed by three private investment groups, including the american owner of majestic wine. last month the chain rejected an offer of £5.5 billion from a different firm saying it significantly undervalued the business. a stockbroker told me the supermarket is seen as an attractive prospect. supermarket is seen as an attractive --rosect. , , : prospect. they will feel the price is too low and _ prospect. they will feel the price is too low and there _ prospect. they will feel the price is too low and there is _ prospect. they will feel the price is too low and there is value i prospect. they will feel the price is too low and there is value to l is too low and there is value to have. it is a good business model, and the shares have done very very little for the last five years so i

scientists at the university of essex are working on a solution for one of the largest and most complex environmental problems facing the country. the uk has nearly five million tonnes of nuclear waste to dispose of, but the job is so difficult and dangerous that it would take humans 120 years to complete. the scientists are designing a new generation of robots capable of working in some of the most radioactive places on the planet. here s our science correspondent richard westcott. there is enough nuclear waste in britain to fill wembley stadium. some of it has lain untouched in waterfor decades. if humans cleared it up, it would take 120 years. so scientists are developing a new generation of intelligent robots to help out. their circuit boards will need to withstand huge levels of radiation, so they are testing them in this special room. the entrance is this one and a half tonne steel and polythene door, which you just pull like that and get out of the way and then
9:22 pm
ijust have to stop the momentum so it does not bounce too much. it is pretty heavy. then we go into the room, i have the geiger counter, but it is very safe, the room is not being used at the moment. you can hear there is no radiation anywhere. when you come in, there is this blue door here. that will open and a beam fires one and half billion times the normal number of neutrons at whatever you put in its path. what that does is recreate really high levels of radiation. let's see what is here. there will be a few blips because it is just background radiation. richard, i have one of our robots here that is carrying one of our processor boards. it has brought us a little present, hasn't it? for experiments. and what you can see here is a processor board that we have used for these experiments here which we have blasted with radiation and even though it looks perfectly fine, it does not work any more because the circuits have been damaged by radiation.
9:23 pm
so at the moment, from nuclear decommissioning and processing of nuclear waste, this is mainly done by human operators who have to wear protective clothing and it takes about five to six hours to go and get these protective clothes on and they then have to travel to to the site where they undertake the work for another hour or so, undertake the work for two hours and afterwards they have to come back and get undressed. one of the benefits of using robotic solutions for that is that they do not have to go in these protective clothings, they are in the environment all the time. they can work 2a hours, seven days a week. here is the room in action. the white dots are radiation damaging the camera's electronics. building tougher electronics could also help protect our technology from naturally occurring cosmic radiation. it has become a modern problem, because electronics are getting smaller, it is getting faster, it is doing more, and that means that it is getting more interfered with by these particles. so things like driverless cars, electric vehicles, internet technologies, modern electronic systems, a! systems, machine learning systems, almost anything you can think
9:24 pm
of in our modern electronic world is being interfered with by these particles. clearing up our old nuclear waste is one of the most complex and expensive environmental challenges facing the country. building robots to work where humans can't survive is key to solving the problem. richard westcott, bbc news, the rutherford appleton laboratory in 0xfordshire. ukraine army have been expected to parade in high heels and this has caused outrage. many soldiers are not impressed. the caused outrage. many soldiers are not impressed-— caused outrage. many soldiers are not imressed. :, , , not impressed. the most interesting, im ortant not impressed. the most interesting, important reactions _ not impressed. the most interesting, important reactions in _ not impressed. the most interesting,
