with the history of this imposing house of worship. drill starting march twenty eighth w. . this is the. russian diplomats to leave nato joins the mass expulsion of russian suspected of being a nato secretary general yet still says it's up and russians attached to the military alliance will be expelled this follows the expulsions of more than one hundred russian diplomats from twenty seven countries to scandal the british
10:01 pm
parliament has summoned him to do the same today he said to london thinks but the thing and russian president vladimir putin blames what he calls criminal negligence for a shopping mall fire in siberia that left scores dead but protesters are demanding answers amid rumors of a cover up. it's good to have you with us tonight there is more fallout from the nerve agent poisoning of a former russian spy and his daughter in the u.k. london is accusing the russian government of masterminding the attack which is left sergei and yulia script all fighting for their lives twenty seven countries including britain the us germany australia and many e.u. members have since said that they are expelling more than one hundred russian diplomats in response nato joined the mass expulsions today announcing that it was
10:02 pm
sending home seven russian diplomats and denying accreditation to three more. with nato joining the expulsions of russian diplomats the alliance's secretary general said moscow had it coming. this sounds a clear message to russia that there are costs and consequences for it's unacceptable and dangerous path on all behavior the crisis started on british soil with accusations that moscow was behind the poisoning of a russian double agent in salzburg earlier this month the british foreign secretary calls the expulsions a turning point. what will seem in these huge diplomatic expulsion is a desire to correct that and to say right russia enough is enough. russia denies having anything to do with the poisoning and insists the u.s.
10:03 pm
is coercing other states to join its lead. to a blow with a group this is over that country tells one or two diplomats to leave while whispering apologies into our ears. we know that this is the result of colossal pressure colossal blackmail which is now unfortunately the main tool of washington on the international arena ocean to let this little. band on the streets of moscow people also expressed belief their country is being victimized and the americans are against us and they're trying to crush us so that our country will not develop and will not become even stronger but come on irony we don't have the influence of other countries like the united states. countries but at least to stay on the present day russia's relations with the west are clearly are nice and a thaw may be a long time coming. so how is this likely to be viewed in the kremlin i'm joined
10:04 pm
now by constantine finnigan he is an analyzed in the russian capital constantine welcome to the show we just heard the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov saying that countries have expelled diplomats because of pressure coming from the united states is that a widespread view there where you are. absolutely i think this is exactly what is being fed to the russian populist when he was seven by the kremlin propaganda machine and i do think that quite a lot of people at the top believe that the whole thing is a settled by washington actually an attempt to frame russia you know in russian politics and putin this some rises in sets in washington everything in the world is about washington russia can only have a great enemy like washington so i think that it's no surprise that this situation is viewed so through this kind of russian american confrontation that is how do you
10:05 pm
think moscow will react i mean so far we've seen a tit for tat response is that going to continue well i think that generally yes this is the rule. in seven cases it will be impossible because of the disparity between the size of diplomatic missions russian diplomatic missions abroad and foreign diplomatic missions in russia the same goes for the nato military liaison office and they do information office in moscow there's just skeleton starved there not enough people to expel but generally yes i think that moscow will respond but i also think that already now they in the kremlin in this morning square where the foreign ministry is thinking about the russian regime likes to call a symmetrical response call that is that a hacker is there are in a room again this in the end even spetznaz is it what is that what you expect from
10:06 pm
the g. that we're likely to see and we've heard the british prime minister say this that there could be some sort of cyber attack that would have originate from moscow. i would miss surprise this whole i do think that until now we would see no signs he was really all moscow relenting because in the eyes of mr putin in the eyes of his in any kind of attempt to pull back to to to relent to stop an easy call to defeat and this idea that you should never show weakness is very strong in moscow that's why i think we should expect retaliate against some elements of it may not be exactly commensurate to what western countries did and as soon as the british government began pointing the finger at russia over the souls very poisoning we all knew that lattimer putin could expect some pushback but do
10:07 pm
you think he's been caught off guard by the scale of this response yes absolutely i do think that no one in moscow expected that there would be such a massive response by the west no one actually expected the united states to join in with such a significant contribution to this expulsions sixty diplomats brought plus one consulate closed especially on a telephone conversation between president trump and latina putin as well if you look at the list you find even hungary viktor orbán the prime minister is presenting himself as someone who is very close to his the blues and very much kind of on the same wavelength and still even bit of bass expelled one russian diplomat then by that showed where there are real and not the propaganda priorities of the hungry lie so i think yes there's quite a lot of that's quite a lot of unpleasantness from moscow and frankly if you look at it there was nothing
10:08 pm
like that ever meted out even to saddam hussein or to the kim family in north korea it is a very very significant diplomatic and symbolic humiliation. because a team fanatic giving us valuable analysis from moscow tonight constantine thank you very much. but tonight the c.e.o. of facebook mark zuckerberg has reportedly agreed to testify before a u.s. congressional committee it's not yet known when such a hearing would take place reports say sometime in april perhaps earlier today zuckerberg refused an invitation to appear before a british parliamentary committee lawmakers on both sides of the atlantic want to question him about how millions of users details got into the hands of a firm that was hired to influence voters our next focus is building community he is the public face of the social network. isn't feeling sociable when it comes to
10:09 pm
taking questions especially not from european politicians. as inquiry's mom to face big news is the data of its two billion users he told this british parliamentary committee he would not be giving evidence we believe given the serious nature of the allegations that have been made around the access and use of facebook user data that it is appropriate the money should give evidence to the committee. one man who did want to talk with the pink haired whistleblower at the heart of this data scandal is that he said it was the race for the white house that made him go public she don't chung kind of makes it click in your head that this actually has a much wider impact so i don't think that a. military commission operation is conducive for any democratic process whether it's a us presidential or a local council race political campaigns have changed christopher wiley what does
10:10 pm
a data engineer for london based cambridge on a letter the farm boast of its ability to when elections on the cheap smart in twenty fourteen they paid for millions of facebook profiles and are accused of using them to build psychological programs to micro target voters right moment is more important than ever this is where cambridge analytical in our revolution and help them swing votes in elections around the world including donald trump they deny using the data to break down voters the company's co-founder disputes that claim. it is categorically untrue categorically untrue that it came in general has never used facebook data. it is one silicon valley billionaire who could surely shine a light on this and many other questions. and the facebook story just gets longer legs joining me tonight is jonathan taplin he's with the
10:11 pm
annenberg innovation lab at the university of south california he's also the author of move that fast and. break things how facebook google and amazon corner culture and undermined democracy mr kaplan is good to have you on the show i want to get your reaction to these reports that mark zuckerberg has agreed to testify before u.s. congressional committee will these lawmakers in washington will they be able to rein him in this way well i don't think he has in the shorts. this is going way too far on he isn't or did test on himself he sent his lawyers two months ago to the congress. and that was kind of an insult to the congressional leaders but now he has to show up in person and it's very clear that for the first time the u.s. authorities are going to try and hold these companies and to control in
10:12 pm
a way that only the europeans have to date on it seems to me that the federal trade commission has now reopened investigation. and facebook signed a consent decree with the f.c.c. in two thousand and eleven that had fines of up to forty thousand per occurrence of down a breach per day so if you do them out like a two trillion dollar fine obviously they're not going to find number two trillion because they would quit amount of business by the rate they could find them in the billions close to what the find of the e.u. find overall of six months ago. what about zuckerberg saying no to the british parliament what what good is he doing himself or facebook for that matter by saying yes to washington no to one he's not doing himself
10:13 pm
any good at all. he's. has really mismanaged this crisis they stayed quiet both he and sheryl sandberg stayed quiet for almost ten days. didn't say anything and when they did say something they kind of blamed it on cambridge analytical as if they had been buffaloed by cambridge and living in fool and it's so obvious that this breach which took place two years ago. all facebook did was send them a letter saying oh please delete the information on fifty million of our users that you have in your files and of course cambridge and luke ignore that the cambridge analytic of whistleblower mr wiley he spoke to british parliamentarians today and
10:14 pm
i'm quoting him here he said i don't think that military style information operations is conducive to any democratic process i mean military style information operations is that the reality of the threat that we are facing you know if you're able to do deep cycle route through profiles of you know two billion people and be able to target them with exact kind of. information warfare or threat you know they will respond to at the exact moment that you know that they are riled up i don't see how you could call it anything else but information warfare. right mr to happen of course we're out of time but we appreciate your insights tonight jonathan taplin there with the end of birth innovation lab joining us tonight from
10:15 pm
california thank you my pleasure. here is some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world israeli media reports say that prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been rushed to the hospital and yahoo seen here meeting germany's new foreign minister on monday is reportedly suffering from a high fever the sixty eight year old has served as israel's prime minister since two thousand and nine and has also held the job back in the night ninety's the lawyer for detained cattle on separatist leader. says that his client will never surrender in the fight for independence from spain which tomorrow is in jail in germany after being detained while in transit he's awaiting a decision by german chords on whether he should be extradited to spain to face rebellion charges in a phone call with u.s. president donald trump german chancellor angela merkel has called for dialogue between the european union and the united states over trade the white house said
10:16 pm
the two leaders also discussed what washington described as china's illegal acquisition of intellectual property all right it looks like germany's biggest lender is banking on a new boss deterred those fortunes around in as right john cryan probably wishing he could borrow a bit of credibility right now dodgy bank is looking to replace c.e.o. john cryan that's according to a newspaper article continue clashes between cry and then the banks chairman. reportedly behind the move that struggles to get back in the black and the profit warning came in january but who would even want to replace jon cryer the top job is increasingly seen as a poisoned chalice. he took over in twenty fifteen toft with turning the bank fortunes around now of reports in britain's times newspaper suggests john cry in days at deutsche bank could be numbered speculation about
10:17 pm
a possible successor is ready rife. we are hearing that the lender has apparently asked the vice chairman of goldman sachs richard kanada to take over which is interesting because also the new state secretary in the german finance ministry is a former goldman sachs employee but it seems that in order it's not interested but one thing is very sure it's going to be a very challenging job among the many challenges germany's biggest lender is facing reversing three consecutive years of losses some of which can be attributed to the billions of dollars it had to pay out as a result of scandals related to mortgage fraud and price manipulation. and then there's the mammoth task of restoring the banks battered image in this area critics say there's a lot left to be desired koreans decision to put drupal bonus payouts last year despite making a loss did little to allay concerns. alphabets autonomous driving
10:18 pm
company way mo is teaming up with comic jack you are it marks the first major venture into luxury self driving cars the two firms are keen to emphasize safety after an autonomous vehicle from a rival company recently killed a pedestrian is so confident in their offering they say you'll be able to hail an autonomous later this year. it's a big deal for the car industry and the tech sector way more in jaguar one to develop the first electric self driving luxury vehicle c.e.o. john craft stressed that his company's cars have traveled more than five million miles on public roads so we do have that level of confidence that we're what we're putting on the road is safe technology and it's only going to get better i think a really important point to keep in mind with the drivers that we're building is that each car shares all of that knowledge that may not be enough to put the
10:19 pm
minds of driverless technology critics at ease but one thing is clear the race to launch autonomy to be a cause is speeding up. and hence quarter has the analysis from wall street as we heard competition in the automotive driving space is hotting up and choose day session tesla's stock trimmed its gains yet could be a threat to tesla there's no doubt about this at this point then tesla is running behind production schedule anyhow with the their own fleet of the stock dropped more than eight percent in value probably not just because of the competition from way more and from a jaguar but also if they had been a deadly or fatal crash last week with a tesla car and now we heard here on tuesday that investigation has started that put some extra pressure on the stock of tesla keeping it with automated cars chip
10:20 pm
maker nvidia is suspending itself driving cop program what can you tell us. well also because of a fatal accident last week in arizona it was over a car and therefore video now said that they're putting their tests on hold globally by the way so that would probably also affect the tests that are being run in germany in the past couple of weeks and a month and if you look at how important the driverless technology is for and if you do right now as a percentage of revenue it's tiny but it is future growth that investors focused on and the stock of in video also dropped by about eight percent and took the end tire tech industry down with that so we saw a sharp selloff here on wall street in general and that started with the news from invidia that they're holding their tests while we were warned that serious
10:21 pm
accidents could happen it looks like they're already here against quarter thank you very much for that as rent in big cities rises and rises urbanites find it difficult to enjoy the simple pleasure of gardening but you can grow your own fruit and vege in the city just don't look to the ground for the solution because your roof top instead. steel glass in concrete as far as the eye can see. that can leave nature lovers feeling bereft in places like hong kong luckily they can now retreat to little green away sees way up high. this garden is nearly one hundred fifty metres above ground level it's run by a start up catering to health conscious hong kong residents it supplies them with organic vegetables and a chance to plant their own. want to grow. and also they have
10:22 pm
rights if i do it myself i know what. i can trust whatever that's coming out of that lawn. it's a growing trend everywhere from paris to johannesburg. and urban gardens aren't always outdoors it's. the seventeenth floor of this industrial apartment block in zagreb also holds a bean sprout garden. not to be outdone londoners are also planting vegetables deep underground in old bunkers but there's all this even make sense. of the produce the actual total volume of what they produce is quite small but what they do produce in very large amounts is hocking nuts so a garden doesn't just have to nourish the body it's good for the soul too and the best place for one is almost anywhere. in the whole of your business now and hundreds of to breath very much we're going to move now to russia anger is melting

identify my children were killed because they suffocated by the other children that were brought had only half of a head they were here without hands and legs. when the blaze and gulf the mall the fire alarm didn't sound we're discussing investigators say it hadn't been operational for two weeks. as people tried to flee they found many emergency exits blocked there are reports children were left locked inside stuff led investigators also say the public address system had not been switched on. a lot of children died because of irresponsibility of the management and they could not imagine that the scale of the tragedy would be this speak up and most of all i am shocked that they are hiding the truth from us the mulcher the. two days after the tragedy and amid criticism for its slow response the russian government announced a day of national mourning president putin visited kemah and asked the protesters
10:25 pm
to trust in a transparent investigation. which literally one hundred investigators are working on this case they'll inspect the whole chain starting with those who gave commissions and finishing with those who must have been in charge of the security forces. but many still searching for loved ones are mistrustful of the government's promises volunteers across the city are distributing their own lists of those missing scores of names have been added most of them children. and the united nations has warned that the future of an entire generation of children is in doubt unicef says close to half a million children in yemen have dropped out of school since two thousand and fifteen that's when saudi arabia and its allies intervened in the fighting. it's the weakest who suffer most these children are in a hospital in yemen's capital saana many of them
