12:10 am
devastation. we still don't know what there is, other than the aerials and some of the images we have had provided to us, the people who stayed behind. we are still trying to assess what is going on. traffic lights are not working on the roads, as much as there are some places that are starting to open up on the inland sides of town, the grocery stores and gas, the lines for gas are absolutely insane. they are opening up and at the same time the officials are telling people to not go on the roads because traffic lights are not working, so there is the potential for even more devastation, basically. the two frontrunners in brazil's highly polarised presidential election have been holding their final rallies ahead of sunday's vote. all major polls have put former leftist president luiz
12:11 am
inacio lula de silva ahead of right—wing incumbant, jair bolsonaro, but anxiety over a contested outcome remains. laura trevelyan reports from rio dejaneiro. there is great uncertainty in brazil heading into the first round of the presidential election and here is why. the incumbent, presidentjair incumbent, president jair bolsonaro, who incumbent, presidentjair bolsonaro, who is behind in the polls to his opponent, former president, president de silva is casting doubt on the integrity of brazil's voting system. brazil has electronic voting machines. the results come through nationally within two hours of the polls closing. the president bolsonaro and his party have suggested, without any evidence, that somehow government officials could alter the results. this is all leading to speculation that perhaps president bolsonaro will not accept the results, should it go against him. this then opens up a world of uncertainty. if he doesn't accept the result, what will that mean in brazil? memories are still fresh of the fact that brazil was a military
12:12 am
dictatorship until the late 19805. it is a possible president bolsonaro could somehow: the military to make sure he stays in power? military officials are so worried about the public perception they would do this, that they have briefed brazilian newspapers that they have no intention of mounting a coup in support of bolsonaro. is it possible he could summon his supporters onto the streets in a repeat of the former us president donald trump, who came up with this cry of stop the steel that led to the january the 6th assault on the us capital? a lot of uncertainty here, but if one candidate let it get more than 50% of the vote in the first round of the election on sunday, that would mean there wouldn't be a run—off on october the 30th. so many, many questions here in brazil and some anxiety and uncertainty heading into sunday's election.

in the takeover. protests sparked by the death of a kurdish woman arrested by the country's morality police show no sign of abating in iran. these pictures show women and students defying the law by taking off their hijabs. it's just one of the cities where protesters took to the streets inside the country. well a little earlier i spoke to siavash ardalan from our bbc persian service. he told me the protesters are no longer fearful of the regime. these are the most widespread we have seen over the last 40 years since the islamic republic took power in 1949. they are the most well planned in the absence of leadership in the absence of a unified opposition central planning headquarters, so to speak. what we had to do, students protesting across 200 university campuses in the country, in some cases leading
12:15 am
to clashes with security forces he fired rubber bullets and tear gas into the campuses. as well as street protests and strikes that took place in five provinces in the western side of iran. the strikes are very important. they took place in kurdistan, which is where the girl who died in police custody and triggered these protests. but protesters are hoping they could be a prelude to nationwide, crippling strikes that could really be a game changer. that could really be a game chanier. ~ ., that could really be a game chanier. ~ . ., , changer. we hear that these irotests changer. we hear that these protests come _ changer. we hear that these protests come as _ changer. we hear that these protests come as you - changer. we hear that these protests come as you say, . changer. we hear that these - protests come as you say, today is such a big day, are you sensing, are we witnessing the beginning of a revolution? some --eole beginning of a revolution? some peeple are _ beginning of a revolution? some people are already _ beginning of a revolution? some people are already calling - beginning of a revolution? some people are already calling it - beginning of a revolution? some people are already calling it a i people are already calling it a revolution. some people are squabbling over who takes the credit, who should replace the government if it topples, what the power—sharing arrangements are. perhaps all a bit too premature at this stage. what we have had is the law enforcement forces, anti—riot police and plainclothes officers trying to repress the
12:16 am
protesters. which evidently and obviously has failed. what matters now is how much the regime's will to survive is. if they bring onto the streets, they bring onto the streets, the notorious revolutionary guards and if they decide to fight to the last bullet, to their last breath, that can obviously change things. but the other end of the scenario may be that the regime may collapse like a house of cards, or anything in between there. what we know is no matter what happens, things will never go back to how they were before, because the protesters have lost their fear of the regime. here in the uk a man has been charged with murdering 9—year—old 0livia pratt—korbel five weeks after she was shot in the chest at her home in liverpool. 34—year—old thomas cashman is accused of killing 0livia, who died after convicted burglarjoseph nee was chased into herfamily�*s property in august. judith moritz reports.
