another attempt to isolate russia from the outside world this is how these protesters see the latest bill to control the internet with most of russia's media under tight government control the internet and social media are considered the last remaining sources for independent information i don't want to leave all i can churn in the use of fire wall i want internet to be free and. i want to think three years ago it was a joke about that day we'll watch it internet and our today we. see that actually it's not a job to suffer an internet bill proposes to reroute all russian internet traffic through a central point controlled by the state internet providers will have to install specialized equipment the government says it's needed because the country has become more vulnerable to cyber attacks from other countries. u.s.

ten times bigger. but even ten days bigger we don't have couple b. singles for these or something like one hundred thousand engineers the bill which is on its way through the russian parliament is the latest effort by the government to control the internet since two thousand and twelve the government has imposed many restrictions including locking more than one hundred fifty thousand websites arresting people for political santa to online polls and officially banning the popular messaging service telegram while many agree death threats of cyber attacks are real experts say that this bill could actually in danger internet traffic in russia even more recent bills to control the internet have been called clumsy and rushed but this latest bill is seen as a series attempt to control what is considered one of the last sources for independent information in russia dozens of people were detained during sunday's
protest which was officially sanctioned by the government the reasons for the arrest have yet to be given the controversial bill will most likely be approved and become law later this year step fasten al-jazeera moscow. still ahead of al-jazeera in sport the fastest man in formula one had sokoto to take a look at some other speech own kids.
players from attacks by fans of all is a weekend that saw three players assaulted during games across england and scotland the first incident happened on friday in scotland a twenty one year old fan confronted rangers captain james tavernier during a top flight game against to bernie and the fan was arrested and the scottish premier league is investigating the matter of the most serious attack happened on sunday a fan ran on the pitch and punched aston villa's jack agree liz shows they face local rivals birmingham city away in the english a second tier the pitch invader was a rested girlish didn't suffer any serious injuries and went on to score the only goal of the game and the final one was during arsenal's to no home win over manchester united in the premier league after arsenal's second goal united chris smalling was shot by a supporter on the field of play he too was arrested. of course there is
shouldn't be a place. that someone runs into the pitch but then again. it's not nice to see. a very well yes you're right so we just have to. make sure that we do we'll play football and they can watch playing football it's just one of them things that we don't want to see i don't want. that but it's not my my control. i think we can enjoy this report out today i'm very proud of part of the. os but i think we need to do before we have a joining us now is mad don he's a sports writer at the daily express he was at the arsenal manchester united game and saw what happened and that does football in britain have a problem with pitch invasion or is what happened this weekend quite rare. it's his rare and that's why scum immediately to the attention of the papers and and the
public the worrying thing for me is i just have a suspicion that the supposed her at the emirates saw what happened to jack. and thought that was some sort of a good idea back page or out paper pulls a minus morons and i think most right minded football fans think exactly the saying do you think football player is i need more protection i mean what can be done realistically at these matches do you think. they do need more protection because it is important football is can play football without fear from spectators only seen instance in tennis in the past in a sickening incidence and the last thing anyone wants is to put footballers safety in jeopardy and they've been incidents with calling throwing and bottle throwing recently which does society that so it does need to be better policed and. what the clubs are trying to do is clamp down on the supporters of causing these kind of
offenses. the last thing we want to do is see english football drag back to the days of fences you know best shooting. could be in place but it has become a more family affair football matches in england over the last twenty years and we don't want to lose that just because of these mindless morons and i think that the that the bottom line is better education for fans and also i know the birmingham fans cheered on their support so as he left the pitch and i think people will look at themselves today and think why on earth would you support such mindless behavior actually at your match talk about it a bit in your your answer there but you've been covering for him with intending matches for a while now how different is the atmosphere there ad today compared to the past. it is completely different it goes back to when i when i was a kid even before i was covering football matches professionally then there was
a definitely an air of menace around football matches in the in the one nine hundred eighty s. and around the stadiums and selves these days it's an entirely different atmosphere everyone see to it which is another issue that football needs to worry about because those fans who want to save standing on going to get that all the signs that there's threats to players because the police can't monitor individuals in the same way as they can when they have seats but you know let's not let the mindless minority spoil it for everybody they are cool places to go these days football stadiums there is very little menace to why the players all rival fans those that still look for that sort of thing tend to do so around the games in the towns for whatever reason the that they do that but football match themselves sick in england are probably less intimidating than a number of the games are covered in the continent where where there are still yet a certain segments that you do think it is a little bit surprising when you when you use an english so environment all right

investigations ok whatever his name is lines that from attis out of our thanks very much. as you mentioned earlier china has stopped flying boeing seven hundred seven max in the wake of the ethiopian airlines crash brown has more on that from beijing . well in light of the ethiopian plane crash china has moved swiftly and decisively on monday morning the civil aviation administration confirmed that it had notified all of chinese airlines telling them that the boeing seven three seven max eight aircraft had been grounded and would remain grounded indefinitely it so far affects ninety six aircraft you know the administration felt that there were similarities between the crash in ethiopia and one in indonesia almost six months ago that also involved a boeing seven three seven max eight it was also practically brand new and also
crashed shortly after takeoff and for china that was one similarity to many now the the max eight is basically the latest version of the boeing seven three seven which is very much the the work course of the chinese airline industry now it's not just boeing that china purchases from china also buys from air bus but it's also developing its own version of the boeing seven three seven the co maxi nine one nine an aircraft that it hopes to sell not just domestically but also eventually overseas tom don don is the chief correspondent for e and aviation magazine he says all airlines are praising boeing seven three seven max jets should consider grounding their planes. and the fact is that the new airplanes such as this don't normally pull out of the sky something extremely serious indicated here and because of the similarities between the two accidents and in geneva and now in ethiopia i think it's a very wise move better to be safe rather than sorry some twenty percent of all the
boeing seven three seven max aircraft which are on ordered are going to china so have a large piece of their sales in the chinese airline stock canceling this aircraft if something serious is found wrong it will be a big blow to boeing so boeing i know of course the federal aviation administration the united states will be looking better it carefully at the investigation into this crash to discover exactly what did happen myanmar for instance has stopped flying the aircraft others haven't fiji or fiji airline ties to the max aircraft in three more coming this year it has essentially said that it is confident in its aircraft undefiled training and will continue to fly them virgin australia has seventy of the aircraft on order. the moment is saying it's not making any decisions on that order until he has more details of what happened so
there's going to be a bit of a mixed reaction around the world but there are a lot of max's flying and a lot of airlines will ground them until they find out exactly what the situation is. sense of unease now more than one thousand dollars jerry and judges say they will not. allow actions if president. pursues a fifth term the group has formed a splinter organization protest against the think israel action campaign algeria state t.v. has reported the eighty two year old president has returned home after a two week absence in return to a country rocked by protests has more after a two week stay at a swiss hospital abilities beautifully coas apparently back in algeria according to a statement from his office pictures an algerian t.v. showing what is reportedly the president's motorcade driving from the airport this is perhaps the most challenging episode input of his twenty year rule
a seismic moment in the country's recent history with little sign of diminishing if algeria's authorities still close in the universities early would stop the protest it would appear to have been a miscalculation we are protesting against the president a president who to be enough is enough in a country desperate for jobs anger at the unemployment rates and corruption has been growing especially since protests began three weeks ago students are debating . throughout universities to talk about the solution and to talk about they are the . students are aware and fortunately aware of the situation and they are taking the rights the rights and measures to avoid the weakening of the moment but it's not just the students who are voicing their anger a partial strike across the country is also under way at expected to last for five days at the center of it all this man president abdelaziz bouteflika who has rarely
been seen in public since suffering a stroke in two thousand and thirteen but his decision to stand for a fifth time an upcoming elections has gallop. and ised opposition in the country and while he's offered to limit his time in office after the election promised to change how algeria is run it's not campian rest it's also prompted questions of whether bouteflika is being used as a puppet candidate by a faction of civilian and military figures in a country that largely managed to sidestep the arab spring protests their rallies are a reminder that it's not immune to the discontent that sparked the sudden i go al-jazeera . are men ma says she fares a new crisis for the young he lay has briefed the human rights council also visiting coaxes bazaar refugee camp seventy deca has.
