that surrogates create paul and his daughter yulia were poisoned with a nerve agent developed by russia and that leads the prime minister to one of two conclusions either this was a direct act by the russian state against our country or the russian government lost control of its potentially catastrophic lee damaging nerve agent and allowed it to get into the hands of others she presented the russians with an ultimatum. we must now stand ready to take much more extensive measures. mr speaker on wednesday we will consider in detail the response from the russian state should there be no credible response we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the russian state against the united kingdom. but from russia so far blanket denial vladimir putin's spokesman says service group all worked for british intelligence the incident happened in britain so it has nothing to do with

1:05 am
to respond towards a rush or could. point to somebody who may have been acting without the government's approval and and allow the investigation to move in that direction or it could dig in its heels the way it did over things like image sort of a light other case that we've reaction to that i've been today statement to say well yes i'm very happy and i mean we've heard i could show that this could be a false flag operation the british government itself could have been behind it will have to wait and see what happens the likelihood i think is that they will probably deny any knowledge or involvement having turkey turn this in her statement today as. unlawful use of force by a foreign power right that does raise the stakes what she's going to have to come up with some kind of a response that rises to the level of the rhetoric the tense amount to a declaration of hostilities now in nepal investigators are trying to find out why

a rebel group operating in syria's eastern ghouta and place says it's allowing wounded people to be evacuated after striking a deal with russia. the commun president says his government will restart peace talks with the guerrilla group and after a six week pause president one manual santos suspended the talks in late january after bomb attacks by e.l. and killed eight of these offices the airline says it will agree to continue the peace talks but that the us a little more than little the alternative is to continue killing ourselves to continue confronting one another for many more years or decades to come our firmly believe the country has no need to resign itself to this for that reason thinking of life in so you can lives in a tree even peace for colombia decided to resume peace talks with the. well on a sounder m.p.'s he is following these developments for us from bogota was this a surprise announcement by one sent to us. well i am it definitely
1:18 am
was a surprise for many colombians especially since the announcement came just one day after anti peace party's one legislative elections here but two things happened that might help us understand sense of this season first of all was the fact that the year len sent sent a signal for peace to the government which was the fact that they announced a ceasefire during the elections and indeed a void that any attacks on election day which has long been a constant here in colombia yesterday's elections have been the most peaceful in the history of the country because the fark the rebel group signed a peace deal with a government that took part in it and the plan essentially follows through with this ceasefire so the census took advantage of this
1:19 am
a signal as an opportunity to restart the talks but this is also probably a signal to the rest of the political spectrum in the country as sometimes once peace to remain on the re there in colombia wanted to remain a key element of the presidential campaign here it also shows that he wants to persevere until the end of his presidency which will be in august and try to end all civil conflicts in the country however it will be difficult because the yellin is less centralized organization then the far and there are divisions among its leadership on how to continue the species negotiations with the government right and. santos wants to focus on making peace with these groups seen the right wing parties make strong gains in recent elections he has many opponents and the country is very divided on this what does how will this affect the crucial presidential
1:20 am
election a couple of months. there's no doubt that colombians are divided on this issue in particular the way peace was achieved with the fire why it's in that peace deal the fact that these rebels can now participate in politics we saw fark rebels voting yesterday they will enter congress only a few colombians voted for them but they are indeed participating in legal politics in the country but many people here instead would like to see them in jail or responding or asking for forgiveness and in a different way from what they've done so this issue remains one of the big dividers in colombian society and the elections. elections tell us that a majority of colombians are following right wing parties who are opposing the peace talks and the frontrunner for the next presidential elections on may twenty
1:21 am
seventh is at this point he's the candidate for the democratic center party this is the party of former president alberto diva who was the man who was voted the most yesterday he is the first senator by votes in the in the country still probably the greatest political force in the country so where it shows that these parties could come in power dave do control and i'm sure it is now in congress and this could have grave effect in the implementation of the peace deal with the fact there are many reforms that congress passed as part of that peace agreement and this could also of course have an effect in these negotiations with the land from long time alexandra thank you very much. well the white house has announced a setting up a commission to deal with gun violence in the united states the commission will push to on teachers and u.s.

a misery at this rigid refugee camp in eastern bangladesh many of those who live here say they just want to go back to their homes in myanmar's rakhine state but if you are certain if they ever will what's also unclear is whether they will ever see justice for the abuses faced abuses the u.n. describes as bearing the hallmarks of genocide there appears to be a policy of forced starvation and place designed to make life in northern rakhine unsustainable for a hunter who remains. i miss the international is also questioning whether the more than seven hundred thousand written injured displaced in months of violence will ever be able to return to their homes be satellite images appear to show areas where rohingya houses mosques and businesses once stood and where since the sort of the year there has been a rapid increase in the construction of myanmar military infrastructure including three new army bases construction the rights group is describing as
