rended i have the topic at this moment of time changing any of your shows is not going to do much damage control it has now been confirmed that children because the police definitely had this is brian commission of possible terror attacks and they had indeed feared to act and with the president and the government each passing the buck on each other saying they were not a valid it just goes on to show that there are some c.d.'s that says in the entire administration and the public is extremely angry about this actually what the public want to hear right now is about not seeing or hearing voices resigning but they need some firm oncet from this government a so why does affects the place was behind it what more is going to be done in the coming days and how to see if the nation is going to be in the difficult because one of the see if leaving the houses the changing of features right now is not being welcomed by the public yeah it's
a good point you bring up jimmy lee they're slow with just deciding what to do politically but when it comes to identifying the suicide bombers that has happened rather quickly eight out of the nine suicide bombers have been identified what do we know about them. yes you're right because according to the latest information released by the government to the a.p. also nine to ten bombers have been identified and the government said that one of the bombers indeed was a female the government also told us that all of these almost came from very rich backgrounds and they were highly educated in fact for mommy come on the told journalists today that these attacks being have been planned as back as seven to eight years and this is not something which had been planned in the recent past where i thought we missed ignitions on going to see if this group was leading to any other radical group in the country and may that they have had any funding links so there are investigations going on and maybe in the coming days the governments
will be able to shed more light as to what exactly these groups were and were connected to them ok journalist as i mean the national do you know with the latest tonight from colombo i mean i thank you. well many muslims in say they no fear a backlash after the easter sunday suicide bombings the suicide bombings they have been condemned by muslim groups but many in the communities say they feel vulnerable now. has this report. she is back home often. thought he still has to get to spend the night and he has. another son easter sunday a few hundred meters from where he lives a massive loss to get the. people dead the next day with this young children and wife. and i feel. that
we had crazy it so since we had being in the in the main draw so we thought off. and also being with that with the children we. that is that even what will what made us to be site believe houses here. shake his grief stricken about the attacks and feels guilty that the other themed religion that's him. not to think of him and his family. all along his street the homes and shops office a muslim neighborhood. several muslim one businesses were attacked after the bombings. in the city. bought christian am muslim communities in sri lanka have been talking to ted by blood test extremists in the past muslims and christians in the country have who existed
before least so far the easter sunday have set off tensions between the two minority communities for the first time. local muslims have tried to show their support. sending condolences and. practically condemning the. bot but the tradition of. muslims. a small but vocal group. trying to. defend this is trying to find. the backlash from. religious leaders from both communities to express. crackdowns against minorities on muslim northern. and a national emergency has been declared here again just as it was during the two decades of civil war that civil liberties for the. u.s.
national security and terrorism and the experience of civil liberties being because he. went off to the war in the name of fighting terrorism so days of worry that the . muslim christians have always kept a respectful distance. that is hoped that the easter sunday. between the. north korea's leader kim jong un has arrived in eastern russia with russian president vladimir putin the meeting is in the city. and it will be the first between the two leaders economic cooperation and north korea's nuclear program are likely to top the agenda jim is concerned about u.s. led sanctions against his poetry because of its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program russia has called for the same chance to be eat.
from the german institute for international security affairs good to see. that twice that they always meant to talk about denuclearization of north korea is that what mr putin wants to discuss first of all it's. volved a revival of bilateral relations in general i mean we have to queue the last bilateral summit took place too in two thousand health the two thousand and i don't think it was the head of the father of kim il one moon meeting prime minister medvedev and since nothing. has really happened they have for about increasing and improving economic relations and the third part might be the no grounds there do you think this would be happening if the last summit in one or two between or between kim if that summit had not ended so terribly would there be a summit now with mr putin maybe we don't know exactly but it provides a terrific opportunity for russians and russian foreign policy it provides
a terrific opportunity for our east asian policy and it provides a terrific opportunity to spoil u.s. foreign policy in the region yeah i mean we have two different approaches you have the one the big plan the big. the big deal and the plan by donald trump and the step to step approach by commune one in the russian president as well to give me one and i can imagine that would lead to me putin was watching me twice with kim jong on he he had to have been sitting there thinking why why can't i be there is he doing this summit now in an effort i don't have to do. it for what it's a win win situation for both sides and it allows the communal one to show to the chinese and to a vision pretty good to be americans look i've got other options as well and there's wells and nice return for russians east asian policy and allows to
president putin to present himself as a responsible leader he needs to we i would be surprised if you could see the reinvigorating behind the of the six party talks which f. in there been in two thousand and three would have been dormant to put it this way and this might be one diplomatic approach he's cruising all right mark is not as always we appreciate your insights thank you thank you. there's a look at some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world in syria and explosion has killed at least fifteen people in the opposition held province of it at least twenty eight people were also injured a monitoring group said the blast occurred close to an office belonging to the jihad this alliance. which is largely in control of the province scotland's first minister nicola sturgeon has called for a new referendum on scottish independence from the u.k.
by the year twenty twenty one if britain leaves the european union she said the scottish government will introduce legislation setting the rules for a second vote which would first need the british government's approval sudan's ruling military council has proposed a new talks with leaders of the ongoing protests that toppled president omar al bashir it comes as demonstrators threatened a general strike and called for a million strong march to demand an immediate transfer of power to a civilian government. brazil's a second highest court has reduced the sentence of jailed former president lula da silva from twelve years to eight years and ten months of that means he could be moved to house arrest later this year to silva was convicted of corruption and money laundering. down to france which is taking part in international commemorations of the armenian genocide starting in one thousand
nine hundred fifteen turkey's autumn in government carried out mass killings that claimed the lives of more than a million armenians france was at the time one of the main safe havens for them and is now home to europe's biggest armenian community france announced earlier this year that it would observe commemorations annually on april twenty fourth lisa lewis reports from the southern city of marsay which was the first port of call for armenian refugees. as you seek your fuse incomplete she was born in france as the granddaughter for survivors of the armenian genocide she says she has inherited their trauma. resource a lot also gives your. as a teenager i began to ask questions about my background my grandfather had always told me about the village where he grew up and was a haven of peace until it was wiped off the map just like the armenians they were
left with a feeling of injustice of having suffered collectively this has been passed on to me part of my heritage has been cut out actually more to most. to do almost to our program parents came to must say in the one nine hundred twenty s. they counted themselves among the lucky ones compared to the more than a million armenians who were murdered but ottoman turks but they also suffered much hardship it is a. murder was mostly below the only two of the fifty members of my grandad's family survived he was taken to a concentration camp he told me how he united into his sister's hands so that she would have something to drink as she died two he spent the next four years wondering from country to country ending up in must say in one nine hundred twenty four my grandmother's family were more fortunate they managed to flee but they lost everything. where were. they feel like in many armenians they came to mass
a because france was known to take in refugees. because there was work as well as ted has made it her job to find out more about the past she's a history teacher and works as a volunteer at an ngo that collects documents about the armenian survivors but for her this is also a fight for justice. who. this helps me complete my identity. through collecting other people's memories i find the missing pieces of my story but i'm also an activist this was mass murder we have a collective history we must gather evidence of what happened especially since turkey still denies that there was a genocide against anybody. wanted to be sure their community private about thirty
other countries have recognized the armenian genocide france's move to establish an official day of commemoration is good news she says but more needs to be done. what if you have also been near an alternate and this is progress as it gives the commemoration ceremonies a legal framework france and other european countries need to go further and create laws to make the denial of the yemeni and genocide illegal. the overall deal was the way it's incredible that it still goes unpunished you know here on a slip up through apologists. even such additional measures wouldn't fully satisfy astrid's only if and when turkey finally recognizes the armenian genocide which should be able to find some peace of mind. it's in turkey it is a very different story police there have blocked armenians who tried to demonstrate
in commemoration of the genocide victims about one hundred protesters including some french and european parliamentarians attempted to hold a ceremony in istanbul to more the massacres now turkey acknowledges many armenians were killed at the hands of the overman empire but it rejects the term genocide the turkish president has been critical of france's decision to host its first ever national day of remembrance for our media big. our correspondent dorian jones told us more about what turkish president richard thai air to one had to say today we're hearing some very tough language from president he said that france has no interest in finding out the truth when went on to say that france was responsible for the rwanda genocide in which you have eight hundred thousand people die so a very very tough language coming from the president clearly very angry over these commemorations being held by the french president in france this has been a long point of tension between these two countries when the french parliament
a few years ago passed a motion recognizing the armenian genocide turkey slapped sanctions on several french companies doing business in turkey we've seen none of that today it's just be mainly hot rhetoric and i think it's a recognition here in turkey that micron is using this to consolidate his base inside front while turkey hit the president too with looking to bolster his support among turkish nationalists in the country but at the moment it's more about political handbags rather than any serious throw out that i thought happened in the past and another reason why turkey doesn't want to pick a trade fight with france is because the turkish economy is in such dire straits at the moment political tension could threaten further economic turmoil. there was dorian jones there reporting from istanbul where the leaders of ireland and the u.k. were among hundreds of guests today attending the funeral of slain northern irish journalist leader mckee she was shot by irish nationalists last week during rioting in the city of london derry which is also known as derry

them before he could finish a sentence a standing ovation erupted a clear sign of people's exasperated with the violence and odd moment for the politicians who only joined after some hesitation. even if he were shot last week by reporting on rioting and londonderry as she stood behind a police line the new ira a splinter group of the former irish republican army claimed responsibility for a death and later apologized to her family the group wants to reunify in northern ireland with the republic of ireland. the young journalist was the first to be killed on the job in the u.k. for almost twenty years now people are hoping her death will be a turning point for northern ireland. in the words of lawyer herself we must change our world one pace at
a time. now let's get to work. father mark mcghee a later start that mickey was a powerful example of the pending my dear than the sword that something northern ireland will likely bear in mind after this tragedy thank you. well the u.s. aircraft maker boeing has posted a steep drop in quarterly profits the company still grappling with the fallout of to fade away crashes involving its flagship seven thirty seven max model says the seven thirty seven max crisis has cost it more than billion dollars so far it has now abandoned its financial forecast for this year u.s. regulators ordered the plane grounded around the world last month that decision came after one ethiopian and one indonesian seven thirty seven mags had gone down killing all on board a fault in the aircraft's anti stall system is thought to have been a major factor in both crashes. or nasa's in sight
lander appears to have detected the first ever mars quake it would mean that scientists finally have proof that mars is still seismically active the probe sensors picked up a faint rumble on mars likely to be the first seismic event detected on a planetary body other than the earth and the moon by analyzing mars quakes researchers are hoping to learn more about how rocky planets including our very own before. earthquakes mars quake. the swiss region of him and hall is famous of course for this stuff cheese of cheese makers there they often use centuries old recipes but one of them well he's deejaying up the the recipe a little bit by adding music he says the type of music played is cheese ripe and affects the way it tastes he's even found a scientist to curio the study and after eight months they're presenting their all
the full results for. the gammon valley or m. and tile is where switzerland's best known cheese comes from and one of the producers here wants to make his product even better. they're fun flower is a veterinarian and a cheese maker who's looking to revolutionize the world of cheese. and this i am intolerant two and a half years old microorganisms are working on it it mostly bacteria and if that's the same and it's amazing actually that they're able to affect its aroma all the way down to the very heart of the cheese at this case as this infant can be nine. zero zero family once to get those bacteria to begin vibrating to music he believes that might change the taste of his genes. then on the when you put your hand on the wheel of cheese and feel the sound waves move through it but it's hard to believe it wouldn't have some kind of effect on the. firm clues experiment is
getting a little help from students at the university of the arts in barron. for more than six months they'll serenade his cheeses with a range of beats and sounds including rock songs by led zeppelin mozart's opera the magic flute techno or hip hop equal or if you want to see that it's like. the sound waves will pass through the wheels of cheese causing them to vibrate in different ways depending on the music hip hop. hip hop has lots of bass and it's also the classical piece not very dynamic with quiet sections but very loud ones tonight the loud so does the cheese feel any different after half a year of acoustic your radiation. pattern and we feel a difference with the rock'n'roll one but i hope i'll be able to taste it to make it the whole. jury made up of cooks and artists is judging the results of the
experiments they quickly reach an unequivocal conclusion. there are differences on the sea that. according to the experts here hip hop brought the best results. i'm pretty surprised by the results of my guess is that the constant beats and intensity of hip hop has some kind of effect on the cheese as it ripens the stuff in the case that provoked all of this what do the other judges think. that the rock music cheese tasted best i guess because it was strongest it had a rock n roll flavor and on cleft it seemed that he was on it's a hit it's very soft and slightly sweet stuff and just from cease. fire is happy that the hip hop cheese got such rave reviews tying his product to the musical genre could make the younger generation interested. doesn't there are many young people out there who've never given a second thought to em intolerant hard cheese unpasteurised cheese things like that
and on the sets which is why i labels like hip hop or techno m. and teller could prove a hit. of live is now checking for measurable difference is in the different cheeses. and let's not forget a traditional form of singing from the region who knows maybe one day them and tell you a little cheese will be the next big thing. so they start breakdancing when they have beg your bread all right here's the revised of the top stories that we're following for you they do. toll has risen to three hundred fifty million after a series of suicide bombings in sri lanka on sunday dozens more people have been arrested the sri lankan president has asked the country's police and dispense chiefs to resolve north korea's leader kim jong un has arrived in russia for talks with president vladimir putin the first ever summit between the two leaders is set . with the standoff over north korea's nuclear program likely to be on the agenda.
