5:31 am
airstrikes in syria pumped the opposition to walk out of peace talks in geneva. they say they cannot negotiate when civilians are dying every day. thiscoming up for you hour, the european union hits google with a new competition investigation. this time over its mobile operating system android. we will have the details in our business update. and french families find a new ways to use up their excess food waste and get a few fresh eggs in the process. more on the new home chicken craze on the way. but first, our top story live from paris. we will start straight with the u.s. presence of campaign. gotionaire donald trump home the republican primary in new york with a crushing victory in his home state.
5:32 am
to 25% of of the vote the vote from ohio government john kasich and 14.5% from ted cruz. he says the win makes him a shoe in for the nomination despite continual resistance from the republican establishment. >> nobody should be given delegates, which is a ticket to victory and it's not a fair ticket. aen though we are leading by lot and cannot be caught, it's impossible to catch us. nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting. and that is what is going to happen. and you watch. because the people are not going to stand for it. it's a cricket system -- cricket ooked system. you go back to the old system where you vote and win. nobody can win an election the way they are doing it with the republican party. won bigillary clinton
5:33 am
in her adopted state where she was a u.s. senator for eight years. her win their snapped a string of victories by her arrival and new york native, bernie sanders. >> we won in every region of the country. [applause] from the north to the south to the east to the west, but this one is personal. [applause] new yorkers, you have always had my back. [applause] and i always try to have yours. genie: for more now, let us .ring in james cohen cou we heard from a very triumphant hillary clinton in york. can you say her nomination is a lock? james: i cannot say that.
5:34 am
there is a narrow path for bernie sanders thi and his campaign. there's no reason for it to stop now. they established a presence within the democratic camp and they're going to try to maintain the presence and have some effect on the campaign in november as well. genie: it is true that he does have a definite presence, some that might have pushed hillary clinton more to the left them before. is it worth it for him to stay in the race at this point given that mathematically he will not catch up? james: i do not think hillary clinton will be pushed to the left per se. what the senator's is doing is establishing a presence in the campaign that hillary clinton does not represent. she will be perhaps push into taking during november, but that does not make her a candidate of the left. genie: what about on the republican side? we saw the big win for donald trump in his home state. is that enough to kick away his
5:35 am
biggest nightmare -- an open convention? james: it is not completely certain yet. there's still some trouble ahead for him perhaps, but maybe not so much either. the trouble is for the republican party in general. the republican establishment is tearing a tear out and does not know what to do because trump is pretty much destined to lose the general election. genie: that does seem to be the general consensus, but how was the republican party react? will they rally around someone like john kasich at the convention? see how thatot scenario pans out because you so little electoral support. in new york and he gets 25% here and there, but he is an outstanding alternative as a citizen on the rebel can side, but that does not give him
5:36 am
legitimacy to be chosen as a candidate as some sort of maneuver in the convention in july. i think trump is on his way. all they that measuring gravity of the situation because a candidate who stews a lot of hate and intolerance. genie: you do think the republicans will end up backing donald trump? james: i do think they will end up backing him. i do not have their formula in mind. i've no secrets from their camp, but i think the disappointment will not be as firm as he would like. part of the party would like to disassociate from him because he is likely to create some damage in terms of electoral seats. genie: in a strange situation where the rebel can has to candidates and either are appreciated by the mecca public american public.
5:37 am

5:42 am
towns. that is from local coronation communities and this takes place in a context where the opposition has recently announced it would carry out new offenses against nearby locations of government forces in the north province. these could very well be airstrikes carried out as part of a counterattack by the government forces. we do not know exactly who carried them out because they are both syrian and russian planes active in the area. there is certainly no mention of these strikes by the syrian state media. that this isugh is perhaps the deadliest single attack since this came in to place in the 27th of february. is still being in
5:43 am
.lace in some parts of syria in most people's mind, that has all but collapsed. the same has been set of the peace talks. the opposition seeming to have walked out on monday before this attack. however one of the things they have said is that they were pulling out because of increased attacks on civilian areas and increased bombings on civilian areas. see this as a justification of that decision. ettse: that is adam pl reporting.

idea and a fun ones -- the world's smallest nightclub. stephen: it is quite a good read for something not useful anymore. a company called kelly disco converted three phone boxes into tiny nightclubs complete with disco balls, lights, and a small smoke machine. the current record is nine people managing to fit inside a phone box. i do not know if there is much room for dancing though. [laughter] genie: that actually looks kind of fun. thank you for that. that is a look at business news. now time for the press review. we are here on the set with a look at the papers. a lot of reaction to that u.s. primary in new york state. are calling it a happy homecoming for both donald trump and heller clinton. >> trump wins big in new york. that is what "yesterday" is saying. he is poised to win all but a handful of his home states 95
5:52 am
delegates. her in his victories each, he boasted that we do not have much of a race anymore. papers are also calling it a triumph for hillary clinton. those are the words of "the new york times" today. it is becoming nearly mathematically impossible for bernie sanders to catch up to clinton. there's an interesting article about hillary clinton's relationship to new york state in general. she has had dramatic highs and lows during her political year, but the new york state has always loved her back. she is actually not from new york, but actually she was adopted in a lot of ways. tuesday, new york state really delivered one of her biggest that was, a boost crucial during this rocky and unpredictable race. genie: a rocky race that has done an damage to her image still. florence: let's take a look at
5:53 am
"the washington post," saying her images underwater despite this much-needed boost out of new yorrk. it has been a battle for new york senator hillary clinton. let's take another look at the washington post. this article saying that the 2016 presence election is shaping up as an unpopularity contest of unprecedented proportions assuming hillary clinton wins her nomination and that is regardless of whether she went against donald trump or ted cruz. general election is set to be between two candidates int unfavorably viewed history. it will be the first time in history of pulling that we have major party candidates disliked by the majority of people going into this election.
5:54 am
whoever wins this election will probably be in a weak position and have a lot of work to win people's hearts and minds. genie: in the meantime, while those two leading candidates are now focusing on the general election in november, "the near times" has a message for the underdog s. florence: there will be calls for john kasich and bernie sanders to leave the race, but they say they should ignore any pressure to quit. john kasich is not an exciting candidate for "the new york times," but he is the most sane sounding candidate in the republican field so it's important to stick around to give the party grounded. for sanders, he has made the race more substantial and he is actually push clinton a positive way. those are two reasons they should stick around. ultimately it should be up to voters to decide who stays in the race and who does not. the article says do not cheat
5:55 am
voters out of that choice by stepping down. genie: let's go back now to france for papers are focusing on the government's plan to reform the labor code with the leading business representative giving an ultimatum. florence: it has given the government three weeks to change law thatlled elcon wants to amend or change france's labor code. you can see it on the front page that there is the president of this business association and he is angry that the government has essentially given in to the pressure of protesters in the streets and water down its original version of this law. amendments to the original law and he is upset the government is backing down. government should not backtrack and should go back to something closer to its original project. he is threatening to pull out of negotiations altogether unless
5:56 am
the government goes a little bit back-and-forth on what it is actually saying at the beginning. here's a funny take on things. they are talking about business owners up in arms. with the play on words protest movement that we have been seeing gaining ground across the country against this labor code reform. genie: they also like in this whole labor code reform to a greek tragedy c. florence: according to the editorial, this labor reform and code we have been talking about is going to end up being quite a mess. it is going to be overly complicated and not boost job creation, which is what it's all about overall. in the meantime, there will be a lot of collateral damage. the major victim is something called social dialogue, a very important institution, the relationship between business owners and representatives and trade unions, people who represent workers. that relationship is crucial to
