crossed the dynasty german border on his way to belgium. but his journey ended in a german gyle sell. lots of it on a utopian arrest warrant has been issued we received a request and it's been looked into. pre-conditions we will farther assess whether extradition can be granted a step before that however is the detention order and we're seeing if we can proceed. if you will include and. shortly after preach to months arrest tens of thousands of supporters rallied in front of the german consulate in barcelona. their message germany should stay out of spain's campaign against the cattle an independence movement one has gotten when they touch a democratically elected representatives they touch an entire people and will keep on protesting peacefully as we've always done. by supporters and opponents of preached to more and now waiting to see how events in germany will play out. now
decide to fight for my cattle and president. and for more on that let's bring in journalists even bergen who is in barcelona for us so you know stephen we saw scenes there from barcelona clashes overnight a sense of anger on the streets as do most people in barcelona though share that anger or is this just a certain segment of the population i think the anger is broadly shared although there is fifty percent of the population actually played for independence i think there's a general sense about ridge where he is but his government has handled this all along they had they've refused to handle as a political question and insisted on turning it into a basically a legal process now to the point where they are simply looking you know everyone associated with leading independence movement in the hope of smothering it but i think this is in the short term this may this play were in the medium to long term
it's doomed to fail and it is it fair to say that this is now a change in tactic on the part of the spanish government because i mean if we just if you just look at you know that the history behind this there is there was this initial warrant out for his arrest back in october that was withdrawn then spain great issued it on friday why. i think that they withdrew it because the they realize that this is serious crimes that puts them on his toes with which your rebellion and sedition on the belgian statutes and so he couldn't be extradited on those charges but since then he's been traveling around europe and i think the idea was they could never live in a country where they were more likely possibly germany to be able to exit doors among the more serious charges i feel ok so what happens then if he is indeed brought back to spain how are people there likely to react. well i think we can assume that on the day that he's brought back and said prison there will be
some reaction on the street there is a call from the mainstream independent sponsors for co on the other hand they are calling for united front against the spanish state which is somewhat contradictory draws roots movements are calling for continual demonstrations and disruptions you know both of them has a long history so movies are a proud history of it was provocative and we could expect to see more. see even bargain with the latest from barcelona where as i mentioned there have been clashes overnight in the wake of the arrest of carlos pushed a man who will go before a court in germany today to find out what exactly he is facing here thank you so much for putting into perspective for us stephen well a fire at a shopping center in siberia has claimed sixty four lives six bodies have not yet been recovered the blaze broke out on the fourth floor of the complex in the coal mining city of kemah rovell eyewitnesses say that they saw people jumping from the
windows just to escape the flames. smoke darkens the skies of kemet oval in central russia a city with many grey days ahead. the winter cherry mall was full of sunday shoppers when a fire broke out over one hundred people escaped the blaze some of them leaping from the windows. but dozens died inside and more are still unaccounted for children among them. is not against it but the people at four ten in the afternoon we received information about smoke in the shopping mall on the fourth floor were children playing rooms and cinemas were situated in. that it took hundreds of firefighters most of the day to bring the massive blaze under control not before over a one thousand square meters of the building had been destroyed. reinforcements have been flown in to help search for the remains of the victims and to help their
relatives cope with the loss. if the rescuers have gas masks to be able to work in a toxic environment but we're ready to work at night but we don't we're taking special lights with us live psychologists are accompanying the rescue group to help the elected population. the cause of the blaze remains are unknown investigators are now checking the shopping mall safety documentation and may bring criminal charges against anyone responsible for the tragedy. and more let's go live now to our moscow correspondent who has the latest for us so drag a terrible tragedy bring us up to day. well the death toll could still go higher the police said that more bodies are discovered during the inspection of the scene at least nine children are among the death so far sixty four people on confirmed dead and many others injured up to eleven people
are still believing to be missing that investigative committee said the blaze appears to have started in the hallway of a cinema the roof college student two theaters this seems to be a typical russian shopping mall with which contains on several floors cinemas restaurants and dozens of shops a sound of bowling alley you name it camera is an industrial city that's winter out there and say we are still very cold so a lot of families don't go out they spend their leisure times especially with the children in a shopping mall and it's really a tragedy and investigators and they want to get to the bottom for civilly of what it is that exactly happened here why it happened they've apparently launched a criminal probe into possible negligence and violations of fire safety do we know any more about what caused the fire and why so many people died here.
well the course of the blaze was not immediately known but from what i've heard so far the necessary fire protection measures didn't work they thought the fire alarm didn't go off witnesses said we can only speculate right now fire prevention efforts are expensive particularly here in russia and there are managers who are willing to spend the money is and others are not willing to spend the money and he rushes sometimes it's a kind of confusing who's actually responsible for the fire protection in the shopping mall is that the owner of the shop isn't the owner of a cinema or is this this stuff was actually running the mall so if both sides are responsible in the end no one is really responsible for it what i heard on this is a radio station here in moscow they said that this stuff didn't organize that if a creation. in moscow thank you. let's get a quick check now some other stories that have been making news around the world
