in the near future aleppo is now reportedly split into two parts what the army mainly in the west and rebel fighters in the east gets such a top hold the rebels advance and seize the other half of the cities they talk to call use of explosives effectively in advancing the syrian forces i mean when we speak on the tactical level we have seen since attacks in which produce lot of civilian casualties. cause a lot of. cost for. you for groups in syria wanting kerry sets or tracks. which they have gained. in the war to be it is. for groups here last week the syrian forces discovered a secret tunnel leading from another flashpoint city of homes to damascus suburbs it takes a lot of effort to build one how often not such tunnels used in modern warfare.
well even more and more for you. troubleshooters of. the tragedy of august on the struggles for to transfer the work winds to. problems across the border in afghanistan so i believe these are the same which were pushed from of understanding to what is done ten years ago and to syria now india resorting to the same tactics in syria and in turn a war on terror we have seen that of understand. the security of the region. also pakistan terrorism ground zero many thanks indeed for your time. now the danger of terrorism spilling out of syria was highlighted by the head of russia's security service the f.s.b.
and also he's told boston has more what he had to say tom. of the f.s.b. this was speaking about his concerns not just about the humanitarian crisis in the middle east not about the threats of sectarian violence there but specifically about the threats from the international terrorism and al qaeda he said that the unrest in the middle east has made it a breeding ground for terrorism and that the removal of leaders there has made it easier for terror groups to spring up specifically terror groups like al qaeda and there is an increasing risky things of out of terrorism islamist extremists getting into high government positions in these rapidly changing political systems in the middle east and that could present great dangers for the future as well as that more than just the activities of the groups themselves to a risk of weapons of mass to see whether the risk of weapons of mass destruction in
the region falling into the wrong hands doesn't also increased because of all the turmoil there he said this specific to russia there have been sightings reported sightings of north caucasus terrorists in the middle east gaining valuable experience in the fighting there and that was obviously a cause of particular concern to mr bought because he says that the new strategy bring them in the region is that of a thousand stabs as he put six the death of the u.s. is ambassador to libya recently has now been linked to al qaeda and mr bourne a call thinks that wildfires in the region as well and in the e.u. recently very intense wildfires there may well be the work of terrorists themselves he's citing websites they're talking about the ease with which wildfires could be started
a way to cause immense damage by terrorists with very little imports and that was the. message from bought the coffee talking about the concerns of the possible rise of al qaeda terrorism in the newly rests in the middle east thank you very much indeed tom barton reporting there live. torture violence and arrests the words used by human rights activists in bahrain to describe the government's attempts to crush anti regime support in the latest incident riot police move to despise a funeral procession for a protester who died behind bars after he was allegedly denied proper medical treatment on his policy or has been on that. mohammed was sentenced to seven years behind bars for participating in problem democracy rallies note that i'm saying pro-democracy rallies his family and his lawyer claimed that he was suffering from sickle cell anaemia and he died while in prison because he did not receive adequate
medical treatment and now thousands of people gathered on tuesday for his funeral procession but of resulted in clashes between protesters and police as the protesters were prevented from reaching the pole roundabout which is the center of last year's shiite uprising also on choose date six medics were seemed to jail this after the bahraini highest court rejected their appeal to overturn their convictions for the rolls in and protests which swept the gulf kingdom last year and human rights groups have condemned this the medics were part of a group of twenty doctors who were charged with inciting violence but in fact were really charged with having been perceived to be on the side of those protesting against the regime what we're hearing from human rights groups is that these are prisoners of conscience they're demanding their release and they have criticized the bahraini government for its dismal human rights record both of these stories
have gone launched me and noticed in the mainstream media there hasn't been any discussion at the united nations observers are saying that you need to look at the difference in response between what we've seen here and if by comparison this had happened in syria. bahrain's crackdown on dissent was explicitly covered documentary made by c.n.n. journalist barely on the film one prestigious journalism awards but was only aired domestically in the u.s. and it's in the documentary makers things always motivated by money we were able to kind of dodge our minders and sneak into some of the villages and actually see these atrocities patients who'd run out of the hospitals that were shot up with birdshot. ambulance drivers who were beaten and as we were heading back out of these villages we were violently detained by security forces and buffering about twenty masked men with machine guns who then try to erase all the video that they found and luckily my female producer and i were able to hide some disks. and we
were able to actually get out of the country with this content so you can imagine surprise when we got back to the u.s. and this content was airing on c.n.n. and right after that is when the phone calls started coming into the network complaining about me and trying to get my coverage. is paying c.n.n. to create content that shows bahrain in a favorable light even though c.n.n. says this content you know is editorially independent it doesn't. affect that what we've seen that with this documentary not airing and also with the constant struggle i had c.n.n. to get bahrain coverage accurate coverage of the human rights abuses on air while i was there what c.n.n. is doing is they're essentially creating what some people have termed infomercials for dictators and that's this sponsored content that they're airing on c.n.n. international that's actually being paid for by regimes and governments and there's
every principle of journalistic ethics because we're supposed to be watchdogs on these governments we're not supposed to allow them to be paying customers as journalists coming up after a short break don't you ball in space. he is a disaster headed towards the international space station and i'm sean thomas and coming up i've got all of the answers. well. science technology innovation all the developments from around russia we've got the future covered my parents really truly honestly believe that what had happened was as a result of my father's exposure to agent orange i was born with multiple problems . i was missing my leg and my fingers and my big toe on

policies and even hinting at legal action against the leader. of course now from tbilisi. it felt as if georgia had won the football world cup thousands in the streets celebrated the surprising win by the opposition and despite fears the ruling regime may somehow hamper destroy soon their worries were swept aside by the president himself so. it is evident that the georgian dream call it in has secured a majority this means this parliamentary majority has to form the next government for us at least for me the views of this coalition were fundamentally unacceptable and still remain so. just six months ago an opposition win was deemed impossible the ruling party is rating was at seventy percent and nobody could challenge that. really was that he amended the constitution granting more powers to the prime minister a position many bridgette that he would eventually fill himself little did he know
he was digging his own hole when he made changes to the constitution again i would see. it is it time to say dreams italy never see the parliament these are the majority of his party we knew that one day each. but it would come source probably he. just did the constitution on his own shape and on his own he could survive this let's see before they were all arrested in georgia but. that's a little less forever. however this situation did not come out of nowhere prison torture tapes released in september he'd saakashvili the hardest thousands took to the streets as allegations emerged that he personally ordered the torture and filming of these atrocities and now the president could face more than simply losing his grip on power if there's
a big enough majority perhaps to impeach him maybe his term to october next year remember the changing point in this election was the allegations of brutality in prisons and torture and the allegation behind that was of course that saakashvili and his prime minister merabishvili had altered this abuse so if you have a situation where the new parliamentary majority wants to investigate that abuse it could well produce a crisis full his close associates so they could not only have lost the election but they could face serious legal complications the georgia dream party leader and possibly the next prime minister because anybody really has already made his position clear. this man's ideology has established a crime of violence and torture the footage you've seen of the things happening in the georgian prison is the result of his ideology because he brought together the group that carried it out it will be good if he submits his resignation rather than
us starting various procedures to force him to resign. it was not only the prison tapes scandal which brought fortress of power down say experts corruption among elites daunting poverty and playing hardball with russia all contributed but for now georgia is welcoming and you error hoping for a fresh start georgia's history is rich with different sorts of bloody cold it does and forceful change of governments in the outgoing president mikheil saakashvili came to power as a result of the revolution so this may well become. first days in this country's history of a peaceful transition of power. let's. see reporting from belief in georgia space debris closing in on the international space station as they hope to shift all that they've ace in the new face considered every time the chance of a collision exceeds one in ten thousand and thomas brings us up to date now sean.
well certainly space may seem like a. big place but if you consider we've been shooting stuff up into space for about fifty years now a little bit more than that and it is estimated that there is more than twenty one thousand pieces of debris from us that are more than ten centimeters in size that are hurling around our planet at around thirty thousand miles an hour in the same proximity where we work it's not surprising that every once in a while we have to have a course adjustment now sometimes these minor course adjustments are considered as you mentioned and in this specific case a piece of defunct japanese satellite is threatening the station in fact they're saying that there's a one percent chance that it might need to have a course correction or a vase of maneuver if that happens it will be at three twenty two greenwich mean time on thursday so not very long now now at that point it's inside will have to
wait for about five hours and then at around eight thirty one g.m.t. this particular piece of debris is expected to come dangerously close to the international space station now the three crew members on board currently there is one american astronaut one japanese astronaut and one. there right now usually the crew is six people but only three people on board right now if for some reason that it looks like this piece of debris will hit the space station still even after the a very sad maneuver there is another emergency procedure in place at this time the crew onboard will close all of the hatches and then crawl into what they call a lifeboat which. really a soyuz capsule and wait with all of the procedures in place for them to dock rapidly rapidly from the station which means they are one command away from just getting out into space if something actually does hit the space station so right now they are checking to see if they're going to have to make that maneuver and just hours away at this point in time. sean thomas with some space concerns for
a special many thanks indeed on time now for the latest market rob. thank you you know of course where moments are in the markets here primarily and then of course starts take a look at what's happening in europe right now we're still seeing losses and all this is related to spain and that is because we've heard for the past couple of days rumors that spain will might have to ask for another bailout then there were many analysts saying that if that does happen it will mark a new low for the euro crisis and some say it's saying that a boy indicate better wall spiral out of control but investors were really looking forward to it and they wanted to hear about it but since then the spanish prime minister has said that there would not be looking to get another bailout anytime soon and this is appalling when the markets are reacting to investors in particular we see in the numbers in the red at the moment although there are minimizing the earlier losses by a little bit so they're approaching of the lot picture right now and will move on
and take a look at current season to see that the euro has not found his strength in versus the u.s. dollar when it comes to the ruble it's still losing against the name currency basket and if you take a look at the russian market since for mentioning the ruble as one year and of course tracking everything that's happened overseas the r.t.s. the shuttering over half a percent similarly with my sex and of course lower oil prices always have an effect on the russian economy and this is very energy dependent and that's what we're seeing reflected right now in the numbers and investors are also looking forward to see what will happen on friday because we're expecting a u.s. jobs report and also on the. payrolls report so we'll keep monitoring that but let's stay with russia and talk about the third largest oil company which is to b.p. which is now looking to get out of the six crude block and then there's the well of the oil field is being developed by a group of companies led by ross there and that twenty per cent stake is what is on the table and that's worth about two hundred million dollars another russian oil
companies have to go with the project last month. as it was a slow as this are back to thanks marina in a few minutes john is far special report it's called on top of the world is coming your way in a couple of minutes. if you're passing through rushes to view a region you really can walk on the wild side thousands of kilometers of unspoiled countryside make up an area where it's still possible to live off the learned and enterprising locals so the fruits of the forest by the side of nearly every road such spectacular scenery makes it a paradise for fishermen and provides a business opportunity for hunches. you know he has been hunting for more than thirty years and works for a company providing expeditions for tourists this season ducks are on the menu.
for two things a successful duck hunting. and a bubble silence which means that i need to be very quiet i'm not going to write in the. office. but when you've been in the business as long as he has the birds don't stand much chance. there are defined hunting seasons in russia but lax enforcement means many animals are killed out of the allotted times which can leave young animals orphaned and unable to survive but environmentalists are fighting back the heart of just us forest provides a sanctuary for the most famous beast in russia it's home to a group who rescue often bear cubs and raise them when they're old enough to fend for themselves the cubs a target taken to a remote location and released back into the wild but it's not just bears who find a haven here this is wolf island here wolf pups have been captured by
hunters or bought from zoos have a second chance at life and conservationists have a unique opportunity to observe them these walls are all around four months old and they'll stay in this area for up to three years then most will go back to the wild for good just viewing them from the car was an experience in itself but then after a bit of a bumpy ride came an opportunity i just couldn't pass up. and this is where i was hoping for when i heard i was coming to a place called wolf i had a chance to get up close and personal with the locals and it's these guys are going to act as foster parents for the next generation of wolves who come here. using the old rules a surrogate parents has already proved a successful technique. every i place infant wolves with one year old wolf cubs his parental instinct is totally shaped and they take them as their own cubs it's an
important part of the world's development and a major factor in the success of a project which has seen more than twenty generations of cubs grow up here it's going to continue to take time and money to rehabilitate the wolf's reputation in russia. but the keepers here hope their research and dedication mean that wolf island remains a place where visitors can truly understand the call of the wild. good news sigrid laboratory tim curry was able to build a new world most sophisticated robot which on fortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tunes mission to teach creation why it should care about humans and we're going to this is why you should care only on the dog.
would be soon which brightened. someone from finest impressions. whose friends start on t.v. dot com. my parents really truly honestly believe that what had happened was as a result of my father's exposure to agent orange i was born with multiple problems . i was missing my leg and my fingers in my big toe on my right foot i use my hands a lot in my artwork i find myself drying my hands quite a bit to me. for my hands you know just as if anyone won but they do tell a story they tell us story of. the oxen. only
twenty minutes to cover two hundred twenty meters with no safety ropes. known as dexter on the internet storms a radio station in electra's a city not far from moscow ok here we go. he is most likely to establish a new record. to friends of our leg follow him with no safety rope seeing. if his online name is bassett. the youngest of the three. legged conquers the
summit even quicker than the expects it in just fifteen minutes. and. they've never trained as professional rescuers they've never even completed a course for climbers. extreme sportsman explorers of urban roofs this is their third ascent at the top they took the footage which made the british daily mail call them crazy russians a five minute video made them true internet celebrities they received more than one million viewers in the first week alone. i don't think there's anything a person can do those who can do something they think is impossible.
