POCONÉ, Brazil (Reuters) - A fire has been burning since mid-July in the remote wetlands of west-central Brazil, leaving in its wake a vast charred desolation bigger than New York City. This massive fire is one of thousands of blazes sweeping the Brazilian Pantanal - the world's largest wetland - this year in what climate scientists fear could become a new normal, echoing the rise in climate-driven fires from California to Australia. The Pantanal is smaller and less-known than its famous cousin, the Amazon jungle.

Hong Kong’s security chief has piled pressure on Taiwan over the detainment of five Hongkongers who allegedly fled to the self-ruled island in an asylum bid, warning Taipei against “harbouring criminals” and calling for them to be handed over.The government has yet to receive any information from Taiwanese authorities on the condition of the individuals, according to Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-chiu.“We did not receive any request for assistance from their families either,” he wrote on his official blog on Monday.Get the latest insights and analysis from our Global Impact newsletter on the big stories originating in China.Lee’s remarks came a day after Taiwan’s semi-official Central News Agency quoted an unidentified source as confirming reports the five who fled Hong Kong were still being held on the island.Taiwanese newspaper China Times reported late last month the activists were intercepted by the Taiwan Coast Guard at the end of July after their boat ran out of fuel and drifted towards the Pratas Islands, also known as the Dongsha Islands in Chinese. At least two in the group face rioting charges stemming from anti-government protests in Hong Kong last year, it reported, although the identities of the five individuals have not been confirmed.Lee urged Taiwan to shoulder its responsibility in combating cross-border crime.“If they are suspected of committing crimes in Hong Kong, do not harbour criminals,” he wrote. “We hope that Taiwan will hand them back … after going through legitimate procedures, so that Hong Kong will handle them in accordance with the law.” Hong Kong steps up maritime patrols amid reports of activists intercepted at seaAccording to the Hong Kong authorities, dozens of protesters have fled to Taiwan, but no extradition treaty exists between the two jurisdictions. Hong Kong cited the lack of a formal arrangement in launching last year’s ill-fated extradition bill that triggered months of social unrest. The introduction of the national security law targeting acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces, has further complicated ties between the two governments.“[The suspects] should calmly face their legal responsibilities,” Lee wrote. “It would be much better than bearing with fear the stamp of having absconded for the rest of their lives.”The minister also hit out at people in Hong Kong, including politicians, who had supported violence and “colluded with foreign forces to endanger national security” since last year.Other jurisdictions must not interfere with the city’s law enforcement efforts, Lee said, adding police had inquired about the situation with their Taiwanese counterparts.The Central News Agency confirmed the residents were given the right to consult lawyers.Taiwanese journalist Edd Jhong, who earlier said he had been trying to help the five reach the island, has urged Hong Kong protesters to avoid trying to make such asylum bids, despite the administration of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen vowing to offer assistance to those fleeing the crackdown.The Post has reached out Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council for a response.More from South China Morning Post: * Hong Kong steps up maritime patrols amid reports of local activists being intercepted at sea while attempting to flee to Taiwan * Age of national security law and fleeing Hong Kong activists stir memories of nine-hour swims, brushes with death on the waves for veteran trioThis article Hong Kong steps up pressure on Taiwan over five residents detained in reported asylum bid first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2020.
Khan Agha has endured years of violence in Kunduz, but it was the Taliban's attack on the strategic city in northeastern Afghanistan, as the government and insurgents were preparing for historic peace talks, that unnerved him.
