they're looking for tighter gun laws at a federal level and they've been successful so far in getting some gun legislation passed in their state of florida which had rather lax gun laws before this but the question is can they get that legislation passed by possibly getting people to go out and vote in the fall for candidates who are in favor of gun control that's going to be tough because they're going to be up against the national rifle association which is a very powerful and sophisticated lobby group here in the u.s. . a car bombs exploded near the center of the rebel held city of idlib in the northwest of syria killing at least fifteen people the head of the local civil defense agency says it happened near one of the main hospitals it live provinces syria's largest remaining rebel stronghold more buses have taken feiss and civilians to province from eastern in the south it's the latest withdrawal and

3:22 am
dramatic fall. remember this it's hard to forget really an eighteen day revolution it's hot in cairo's tahrir square which brought down a president so firmly entrenched in egyptian life i called him the pharaoh but equally a revolution can be something which goes full circle and it's hard to argue that it's not happened in egypt seven years later the play is largely the same just with a different cast. after president hosni mubarak stepped down in two thousand and eleven the army took power but for months the protests continued egyptians were not happy with the slow pace of reform they eventually got a national unity government by the end of that year followed by a presidential election in june of two thousand and twelve which was won by this man the muslim brotherhoods mohamed morsi think about how big a deal this was the leader of a party with islamic principles which had been banned in the mubarak years was now
3:23 am
the democratically elected president of egypt but perhaps not surprisingly this didn't sit well with the old guard nor did it help that morsi dismissed the defense minister the chief of staff and trying to limit the influence of both military and judiciary by early twenty thirteen the protesters were back this time against morsi and in july the president was overthrown by the egyptian army and it is at this point that we are starting to see the beginnings of that full circle which we talked about the muslim brotherhood it was declared a terrorist group political parties based on religion were banned so again that only really affected the muslim brotherhood and when a presidential election was held again in may of twenty fourteen egyptians elected a former army chief bill foster o.c.c. as their leader with nearly ninety seven percent of the vote though it does have to be said there was a low turnout and a massive crackdown on campaigning and the media meanwhile morsi was sentenced to twenty years in prison over the arrest and torture of protesters when he was in
3:24 am
office as well as being condemned to death a ripper a count of muslim brotherhood prisoners that sentence was overturned in a vendor of twenty sixteen in a retrial ordered but morsi does remain in jail to this day and all the while sisi has strengthened his grip on power journalists have been arrested including our own let's not forget while potential political opponents have been i have a banned from running or arrested themselves sisi will run for a second term in this presidential election and right now there is very little to suggest he won't win. france has been paying tribute to a police officer who died in a supermarket siege on friday the gunman who went on a shooting spree and took several people hostage was killed on a second suspect has now been arrested is natasha but. people in the french town of cactus on pay tribute to. the forty four year old french police officer had swapped himself for a hostage in a supermarket attack on friday shot by the gunman he later died of his injuries in
