5:12 pm
a statement saying that they have identified and detained the alleged organizer and perpetrator of this attack that took place on wednesday they emphasize that they do believe this was a one man working by himself he planned and carried out the attack all by himself and no further information about the suspect has been released yet but we do know that he's being questioned by the russian investigative committee and they have already come out saying that they are going to make a request to officially arrest him on that charge well a man who is believed to be seen i believe we can show you a video right now of the man he is seen entering a grocery store with a backpack on and it's believed that this is the man who left that backpack in a locker near the entrance of the grocery store and then quickly left and the resulting blast loved over a dozen people injured and some of which are still in hospital unfortunately and in the aftermath of president putin came out saying that this was a terrorist attack the day after he said that islamic state did take credit for an
5:13 pm
explosion and of course now the suspect is in custody we will be hoping for more information on what the motivation was and what not of course many will remember that earlier this year in april another terrorist attack did take place in st petersburg and there metro and that killed over that killed fourteen people and wounded over forty more and that was one of the most deadly terrorist attacks to have taken place in that city but of course it actually could have been in fact worse because there was a second device that just did not explode and was diffused in time. iran has been gripped by nationwide rallies both for and against the government it started as a protest against soaring prices and unemployment and snowballed into the biggest anti-government movement since two thousand and nine but later on much larger crowds turned out in support of the country's superior leda in spite of that the u.s. is only focusing on the antigovernment protests. many reports of peaceful protests
5:14 pm
by iranian citizens fed up with the regime's corruption and squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism abroad iranian government should respect their people's rights including the right to express themselves the world is watching but already we do see that foreign players are involving themselves in iranian affairs and this is ironic because the united states right now is complaining about a legit russian involvement in u.s. elections even though they've never provided any evidence for this but i personally don't think that this is anything of major significance i think the west and the western media they want to exaggerate the importance these are protests. that are that were small most of them were expressing their economic revenge fears and very few were expressing how so the tea towards the government or the state and
5:15 pm
today they're actually counter protests against those groups that were protesting against the political order and they were much larger in numbers across the country but again those were not reflected in the west from the. family of a french aide worker abducted in mali are accusing the government of failing to help because our story and most of the kind. thank.
5:16 pm
you she's going. to put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so we want to be present. for something i want to be. that you'd like to be this is what before katrina more people. interested always in the water you. should. welcome back well russia has had a very busy year and twenty seventeen if you want to believe the mainstream media especially when it comes to sowing discord and interfering in elections worldwide russia's foreign minister and how the few words to say about that this latest interview.
5:17 pm
we. talked. about the. so did you hear that russia's foreign minister actually admitted to meddling in elections around the world i don't. know that.
5:18 pm
what do you think do you think that that actually i mean are you surprised by that that he would admit to actually meddling in the u.s. election absolutely definitely changed everything that the public was seeing right now and course he would never move if he did anyway right it's quite surprising that he would admit something like that and even go further actually it's a prank video it was a comedy show that he did he was totally being so good i mean this only i knew. he was being sarcastic ok much more sense you're saying he was joking. program right but who knows that he's joking do you feel like people are predisposed to believe negative things about russia one hundred years and. i think that we have a very negative connotation about people in russia yeah it's the way russians are pictured the western countries. the son of an elderly french aide worker abducted in mali say her family is disappointed how little president mccrone has
5:19 pm
done to help free her so if he is at seventy two years old back in two thousand and sixteen she was abducted in the city of gower by local terrorists this july she was showed in so-called proof of life that first it released by al qaeda and showed her alongside five other captives her son says despite an ongoing investigation he's received no information about his mother. the paris prosecutor ordered an urgent investigation but it has stalled we are now trying to find new materials to restart it so that it won't be apparent in due to a lack of results we're establishing contacts to try to trace her and seeking any information to establish with the she's alive and where she might be found so far we have no news nothing concrete be the from the kidnappers nor from any contact persons and also nothing from the foreign ministry's crisis center. over the past five years the number of people kidnapped by terrorists has been rising sharply
5:20 pm
last year there were almost sixteen thousand cases worldwide after hostage for so if it was posted online the french president pledged to eradicate the militants behind the kidnapping however after a year her whereabouts are still unknown. if your bones will do you're not looking but the odds of today my thoughts are with our compare traits of people going on who was abducted in girl on christmas eve be sure that all the resources of the state are being mobilized to foreign her and bring her back to her family but also be certain that as far as i'm concerned i will not give in to any provocation because that is precisely what our attackers want it's good that they can be contacted for support but a family has been disappointed by the government's failure to make any decisions on this case yes it's wonderful that we are being supported but the one who really needs support is my mother we need to ask mr marquand about this he has power in
