7:38 pm
months now but the concept of sharing the tournament with qatar's neighbors is complicated by geopolitics qatar is being blockaded by saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahaman and egypt however oman and kuwait have remained neutral which is why we may now be considering them as a potential co-host this is sure to be a hot topic when the fifa council meet in miami next week the video assistant referee took center stage in the champions league especially in paris where manchester united pulled off an incredible comeback against paris sense among united were down two nil from the first leg but won the second match three one scoring a crucial penalty in the ninety fourth minute which sent them through on away goals the penalty was given by v.a.r. for handball and marcus rash word scored it to send them into the quarter finals united are the first team in champions league history to come back from a two nil home deficit it's another win for enter

a manager ole gunnar sol shire he lost just one game since taking over in december and believes they can win the whole tournament. well you have to refer to as we found ourselves we can go all the way but we could. we just have to wait for the drill and then take the game as it comes p.s.g. star player neymar ripped into the officials on social media after the game the brazilian is injured and watched from the stands he said in the tweet or on instagram rather this is a disgrace they put for people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for v.a.r. there is no penalty how can it be a handball when it hits his back the p.s.g. manager wasn't happy for me which makes it super hard is like that i had to leave feeling that the shot disco going not on target and to get a reward from shooting from twenty twenty two metres over the bar and you get rewarded with a penalty from eleven meters it's like there's no logic in that the night's other
7:40 pm
match was also an epic and again v.a.r. played a major role roma were taken to extra time by porto who were awarded penalty thanks to v.a.r. in the dying minutes is converted from the spot and porto went into the quarter finals four three on aggregate it's the first time they've reached the last eight since two thousand and fifteen human rights groups accuse formula one on wednesday of ignoring abuses allegedly related to the bahrain grand prix the country will host the second race of the season this month activists not to use if it was jail for three years and twenty seventeen after criticizing the grand prix on social media in a letter f one says the bahamian government assured them her imprisonment had nothing to do with criticizing the sport human rights watch says that's just not good enough. rely on baseless assurances by the bahamian government
7:41 pm
that the charges have nothing to do with who says peaceful opposition to the grand prix races is false and they have seen the evidence claiming otherwise for me no one should publicly call on the bahamian government to drop the charges against me that are related to her exercising her right to free speech and they should also use their leverage with the whole new government to pressure them to conduct an investigation into her allegations of torture and the treatment and hope of the officers who subjected her to that the treatment to account there's an ongoing investigation in california to find out why twenty one horses have died in the last two months at one of the world's top horseracing facilities rob reynolds has more from arcadia. california's santa anita racetrack regularly hosts some of the most important dates in the u.s. racing calendar for now though it's closed indefinitely after a spike in the number of horses dying at the course in recent months. since the
7:42 pm
winter racing season began on december twenty sixth twenty one horses have been put down at california's most famous track after being injured while racing or training the most recent death was on tuesday when a four year old filly was euthanized after breaking a leg the number of deaths is nearly double that in all of twenty eighteen at the track the straw not group which own santa anita says the one point six kilometer race course will undergo extensive testing adding that the safety health and welfare of the horses and jockeys is our top priority and recent days animal rights activists have demonstrated outside the track this is animal cruelty they say profits not the horses safety is the racing industry's main concern this is an industry that makes its living on these horses and they need to put the horses first that has to be the priority why have so many horses died at santa anita so
7:43 pm
far there is no clear conclusion many horse racing industry professionals believe it has to do with the condition of the track after weeks of heavy rain and unseasonably cold temperatures santa anita management is testing the track with ground penetrating radar and has even brought in a machine that mimics the impact of a thoroughbred racing at full gallop animal rights activist suspects without offering definite proof that race horses are given drugs to mask injury symptoms before being put on the track others say horses are now being bred too much for speed rather than stability making them more injury prone at this point everything needs to be looked at we need to be looking that the can do. the horses the veterinary records whether or not the horses had injuries before they got on the track that were looked at carefully according to a database maintained by the racing industry more than five thousand six hundred forty horses died on us racetracks between two thousand and nine and two thousand
7:44 pm
and seventeen robert oulds al-jazeera arcadia california u.s. racing journalist jay president told al jazeera that the way that the track is being managed could also be linked to the horses entries. policy that has worked previously at santa anita which is to have a sensible number of races each day and to not try and exploit a finite pool of horses and make them run try and run more races per day or more start for animal would be a sane rational return to policy here in southern california the management team at santa anita has changed significantly from what it was a couple of years ago there are new people who are overseeing things here they had a different way of approaching the way racing should be conducted here and there have been problems as we've now seen two months in to this season and i think
7:45 pm
a sane rational approach to start would be to take a step back and to not try and be so aggressive in terms of number of races or pressure put upon trainers to run their horses more often. le bron james calls himself king james and for good reason he just pushed michael jordan out of the top four on the all time highest scoring list in the n.b.a. he scored thirty one points in this game against the nuggets even so though the lakers didn't win james who is thirty four is now part of an elite group of basketball all stars to the right for ron brown clearly saw this milestone coming he only needed thirteen points to eclipse jordan's record and took to his shoes to write a letter to the basketball superstar before the game saying thank you m.j. he signed it with a crown for king james wanted to be like m.j. wanted to shoot fadeaway is like m.j. i want to stick my tongue out on dogs like him going to where most niggers like him
