10:06 am
morning but last night there are thousands of people crowded into this square behind me i the only way i can describe it really is like a con of all spirit there was a band playing spontaneous outbursts of either catalonia really was very exciting for the people here who is celebrating independence this morning though there is a very clear feeling that no one knows exactly what the day will hold there is a sense that this could go either way at this point that this could become extremely volatile especially when some of the more practical aspects of madrid the more visible aspects of madrid trying to impose direct rule start to come into force what for example is going to happen to the man who's really behind all of this push him on what happens when he is say arrested for example that something is still very much on the cards there are reports in spanish newspapers that he could be charged as soon as monday with an offense that well he faces up to thirty years in prison so if that were to happen i feel like the mood could should could change

nairobi. catherine we've seen buildings on fire we've seen these terrible images of people covered in blood is there any hope that politicians will be able to bring kenya back from the brink. well it's a lot of people hoping that it will and not really politicians as such right now it's probably more the professional people the technocrats the you know the working class that needs to do something about whatever is going on because it seems that the politicians both don't want to have dialogue. so people are left in limbo that both their supporters are left in limbo and right now it's quite uncertain because last night we saw violence here in nairobi in informal settlements known as we saw some violence in western kenya as well so right with a death toll of about nine we're expecting that to rise anytime soon so right now
