5:39 am
several faultlines and is prone to earthquakes. the most recent major tragedy left over 300 dead in the northwest of the country in 2012. former leavening prime minister saad hariri has spoken out for the first time since his shock resignation a week ago. he gave that interview to a from riyadh.hannel rumors have been swirling over whether it was his choice to resign, but also whether he was free to come home. myd hariri: i am free of movements in saudi arabia. i can leave saudi arabia whenever i want. protect myght to family. i don't want to see my family exposed to what happened to my father, for example.

5:41 am
would not involvlve themselveven an external wars. this was 201012. and theys early days were thinking paparticularly o f syria there. since then, the process has been very heavily involved in the conflict on bashar al-assad full-size. other groups support of the opposition.. but nothing to t the organized extent has blah -- hezbollahah has. this position would d be that hezbollah made a comommitment to withdraw from syria. theyey are alslsaccused of rainn heher conflictcts in the region. think most people would tell you that is very unlikely they would do that. the only circumstance under which that might come about if ththey say the conflict is more or less at an end d and we have been a tory us and we can leave.
5:42 am
that is certainly not the case. genie: adam, in the interview, saad hariri said he w would retn to lebanon in days. do people really believe that could happen? convinced be enenough to the lebanese that their former prime minister is acting freely and not under the pressure of saudi arabia? well, you heard some of his response in the clip you played earlier on, but amongst the things he said, yes, absolutely, he is free, he could leave tomorrow if you wanted to, he is staying in his own residence. he stressed the security concern, the threat on his lab, and do not forget that his father was assassinated in 2005. these are real concerns.. he also emphasized t the strengh of his relationsnship with the saudi i leadershipip, saying hes considerered as a son by the e g of saudi arabia and the young
5:43 am
crown prince r respects him. but this is in stark contrast to what a lot of people have e been sayingng, not leasast of all hezbollah, and those in their political bloc,c, who, if you like, have accused t the saudi's of holdiding haririi agagainst s willll. even peoplee in n his own accout have been questioning that. i do not think there's enough to allay suspicions the saudi's have used a heavy hand to force him to do what they want. but it certainly seems that this has taken a toll on him. towards the end of this interview he even want to fall. it seems to have had an emotional response. adam, thank you, reporting there from her roots. notice boards. lots has changed since 1998.

5:45 am
team can avoid a tricky shootout scenario. they will have to dig deep. the coach does not want his 171st match ridley to be his last. >> as long as the match is in front of us, there is still hope. as long as we keep fighting, it is clear the positive attitude of the fans will help us. reporter: 80,000 fans are expected to cheer for them against in the swedes, who are hungry for world cup after they missed qualifying for the last competition. genie: let's take a look at today's headquarters for you on -- headlines for you on france 24. this country is marking the second anniversary of the horrific attacks that sent shock waves the world. emmanuel macron visited six sites around paris today where 130 people were killed by suicide bombers and gunmen.
