9:09 pm
look at the district where you realize that just crossing the street it just became more dangerous but people are angry people are also angry there have been questions above is there is this a terror attack it of course is a terrorist act who perpetrated it and whether they were organized is another question but there's a feeling that to some extent of the authorities trying to to make this ground than it really is so there is a political risk now for the government and also we are entering a week in which comment is going to fall to the bill that will change some dispositions of the state of emergency into particular and there has been objections in some in some respect i will say that this helps but certainly if you don't reject it you fight you are left with a position in parliament if. they mention that some measure of surveillance but necessary exactly at a time like this that analysts the best reporting for us from paris thank you

u.s. controversy continues over whether football player should stand for the playing of the national anthem more and more professional players have chosen to kneel during the anthem in an act of protest against police violence targeting african-americans . to return to the protests during a speech in alabama last month calling it disrespectful to the flag the protests have only grown since then. our correspondent alexander phenomena is at a ravens football game in the city of baltimore alexander i understand that fans in the stadium brewed the ravens players why what happened. well i was surprised myself because the ravens decided to kneel down as a team for a couple of minutes before the national anthem was played and then they stood up and that was exactly what the fans told me many of them told me that they wanted to
9:12 pm
see the ravens standing during the national anthem so i was surprised but then i asked a couple of fans here and they told me that it's going was not only about today it was about it's last sunday when the players decided to kneel during the anthem and that was the sort of sending a message that the fans don't many of them of these stones won their players their ravens to kneel during the national anthem and that we have to say that we've been told that some seeds in the stadium were left. as a sign of protest and the people told me that the situation in the stadium was quite tense today all right so some fans are staying home and some bands are verbalizing their failings why is this such a big deal it's just a song right. yes i told so many fans here and most of them told me some of them veterans that they think that it should be about
