the woods yet we do know that there are at least 2 active clusters of the corinna virus 5 or 6 cases were identified some weeks ago in rouhani at the center of the outbreak and that's a citywide testing schemes are millions have been tested in the last few weeks and perhaps more worrying for authorities is a cluster in jilin province which is in china's north east and there have been more than 100 cases identified there recently and actually 2 small cities have been put into lockdown. lockdown with some residential compound sealed off and travel restricted in and out of those cities are definitely while it is a good very good news for today we still have those suspected cases and still china's fight against the coronaviruses is far from over. spanish protests driven the cars around madrid demanding an end to the long down the mobile rally in the capital was organized by the far right vox party it's part of growing opposition to

2:16 pm
1997 it. promised the city a high degree of autonomy for 50 years. but china's leadership now says those freedoms are being undermined by violent protests subversion cools for independence and foreign interference. and under the basic law hong kong's mini constitution they say they have the right to impose security legislation only on friday the vice chairman of china's national people's congress. confirmed that china's security agents will operate in hong kong when needed words that have unsettled many people here they all feel that the one country 2 systems is dead and and now the reaction is general penny people would like you and me grey and making preparations to leave hong kong some people we spoke to said the law was long overdue others resigned to it and i think. it would have happened anyway like if the fear i think i've gotten
2:17 pm
past this stage about being afraid or got it all makes sense a country needs laws to protect itself people only abuse freedom if there is too much. business groups here fear the proposed law will threaten hong kong staters as asia's leading financial center and put further pressure on its independent judicial system it is almost 2 years since protests began over another proposed law that would have allowed wanted people to be sent to the mainland that bill was eventually dropped but the prospect of more on risk this time is unlikely to deter china's government from pressing ahead with this security law adrian brown al jazeera hong kong. anger is building in the indian city of call carter over the response to a powerful cycling which is left millions without power and water. protesters

2:19 pm
in the electricity department in the area however what locals found is that when they went to these offices of the like the city department they were told that it's a weekend and hence the office is shut up this is not something that they expected especially when the city's grappling under the aftermath of the cycle on what authorities are now doing is giving out headline numbers so that people in the areas can contact these numbers and they represent the people are so desperate in the various localities that they are also reaching out to various people on social media some of them other people's representatives from various parties so this is what is a desperate attempt that they're trying to do to get back in activity and water because we must remember that the cities also grappling under the cold night in prices that are elderly people at home some have the houses which have been you know devastated because the cycle for both problems are mounting for the people in the city and the surrounding districts in lebanon inflation is soaring on the economy is close to collapse as the cost of bread another basics continue to climb
