from poaching and that poaching happens far away in their natural habitat and here they're safe and poaching has come here now so that's extremely destabilising and shocking. tonight there's extra security in place at the rhino enclosure behind me where the two surviving animals are still being housed. this was a well—planned operation with apparently detailed knowledge of the park and it has put zoos across europe on alert. paris was the weakest link today, but it might be another population in namibia or other parts of the world. as long as the incentives and profits are high in and the risks are low enough, criminals will seek out the weakest link to get their hands on the rhino horn. like vince, the other young male at thoiry might one day be used for breeding. europe's zoos, designed to protect the species, are now themselves being targeted for the animals in their care. lucy williamson, bbc news, thoiry. arsenal manager, arsene wenger, is under mounting pressure tonight after his team were eliminated from the champions league. they'd gone into their second leg tie against bayern munich needing to overcome a 5—1 deficit.

laurent koscielny got a bit physical with robert lewandowski and the assistant referee seized his moment, upgrading a yellow card to red. koscielny was off. arsene was baffled. the dream was over. with that extra man, bayern could start to click through the gears and, boy, did they. first, arjen robben pounced on a defensive mix—up. costa nabbed a third. arturo vidal got in on the act with the cheekiest of dinks. and vidal, once again, cut arsenal to ribbons to complete the demolition job. yet another 5—1. how the germans must love it in north london. as the boos rang out, wenger must have wished he could be anywhere but. talk of wenger‘s future dominated the build—up but for 45 minutes it looked as if arsenal had found their fight. a second—half capitulation is an all too familiar champions league tale. that small but vocal group of fa ns tale. that small but vocal group of fans is growing louder. there are many now feel it could and should be

with sanchez. and talks of arsene wenger‘s future. in the first half, it looked as if arsenal had found the fight that had been missing. a second half capitulation is an all too familiar tale for arsenal fans. that small band of fans, who were very vocal, protesting at the beginning, is growing louder. many now believe this could and should be the last time arsene wenger manages arsenal in europe. patrick gearery has the story of the night. at arsenal there are are contests long before kickoff. wenger in or out? the assumption was this would be arsenal out. four goals down, perhaps nothing further to lose, why not have a go. it worked with theo walcott. improbable angle now for the improbable come back. then hope died with the referee's whistle. first a yellow card then changed to
10:36 pm
a red. with the penalty, so effectively was arsenal's. for them the rest of the yeeng as a —— evening was a fade to grey. costa scored, 3—1. the german champions we re scored, 3—1. the german champions were creative with their freedom. vidal revelled in the space. this might look like a replay, in fact it was a recurring nightmare for arsenal. this was the gunners' heaviest defeat for them 5—1 on the night. arsenal out, as the demands grow louder, will it finally be wenger out? in the last couple of minutes, arsene wenger has given a news conference. he said he was revolted by the referee. he felt they should have had a penalty to go 2-0 they should have had a penalty to go 2—0 up. he felt that there shouldn't have been the sending off. made a point of praising his team's efforts, after all that speculation about the off—field problems. but
