declared many of the rallies being held on saturday illegal. let's bring in emily sherman who's been at one of the protests in russia's capital moscow emily good to see you let's start by just saying what was the atmosphere there at the protest today well the atmosphere i would say was was tense from the beginning even as the demonstrators assembled on pushkin square in the center of moscow there were actually putin supporters waiting for them who basically started a shouting match with them they were shouting for putin and the demonstrators assembling there were shouting for russia without putin and were shouting against putin and soon after that the arrests started there were groups of riot police out in force basically grabbing people out of the crowd and putting them into police vans now there was some defiance among the protesters as well after the police
7:03 pm
cleared the square some of them kind of returned to the square and kept assembling around the pushkin monument on the on the center at the center of the square as police kept arresting them as well now police here say that three hundred people were arrested just in moscow observers say the number is more likely to be around six hundred now it's worth noting that the protest here wasn't authorized but protests also took place in several other cities in fact around ninety cities today people came out in support of me and some of those protests were authorized but there were arrests across the board. well in terms of demographics who is out there process and today was there one discernible young or old type of person who is in red square there in pushkin square. it's hard to say i think that
7:04 pm
a lot of the protesters today were young but i also spoke to some older protesters . middle aged forty forty fifty sixty there were there was definitely a mix out but when it comes to those protesters who were rather defiant and who kept returning to the square i would say that those were were more or more likely to be the younger protesters who aren't as afraid of being arrested perhaps and who wanted to show the police their defiance speaking of the police we've seen these dramatic videos of the volley being dragged away how did that influence just the atmosphere there in the square well my of course it wasn't really a surprise that was arrested in fact i saw on twitter several users saying that he had arrived at the protests and basically saying ok the countdown begins now to when the police will arrest him what was unusual about today's protests is that the
7:05 pm
police kind of let him get all the way to the square and in fact the footage shows him kind of being dragged off in front of protesters so it was almost like he was being shown off perhaps as a deterrent to the protesters there but certainly it seemed to me that after he was arrested the mood kind of changed there were suddenly a lot more police presence in the center of moscow and the arrests really started and they started clearing the square even on the side streets just off of the square people were being arrested and being kind of moved further and further away from the square sometimes rather violently. a sure win for us in moscow thank you very much for your reporting. u.s. space agency nasa has launched its latest probe to mars a powerful atlas five rocket is propelling the mars insite lander so the planet's

surface as we speak the journey is expected to take six months upon arrival the probe will be sent deep under the planet's crust for clues about how it formed the launch is two years late due to equipment problems which also pushed up project cost more than eight hundred million dollars the solar and battery powered lander is designed to operate for twenty six earth months that's one mars year. the inside lander will be the first to examine the internal structure of the planet mars scientists have been eager to gather data on the red planet's interior for decades. we know a lot about the surface of mars we know a lot about its atmosphere and even about its saw on a spear but we don't know very much about what goes on a mile below the surface much less two thousand miles below the surface down to the center this heat probe should be able to fill in some of those gaps developed by scientists at the german aerospace center it will measure the temperature of
7:07 pm
individual underground layers and determine how efficiently these layers conducts heat to do this the probe will have to burrow deeper into mars surface than any previous drill. another instrument will monitor how much mars north pole wobbles as it orbits the sun. and for the first time a seismometer will measure seismic five gratian on mars surface caused by earthquakes and meteor strikes the data acquired by all three experiments will make it possible to make new suppositions about the inner structure of mars and the information will help scientists to reconstruct the early development of rocky planets such as the earth mars venus and mercury. this will allow them to look back in time to when the super heated elements separated according to their densities and formed layers in the young planets. the

structure of the planets consists of a dense missile core less dense mantles and a rocky outer crust formed as the planet cooled. on mars this process appears to have been faster and ended earlier than on earth there even today we can see the traces of this early. development changes on the earth these traces have been almost completely obliterated. now to some of the other stories making news around the world the former catalan leader has met with party allies in berlin is waiting for germany to rule on whether he should be extradited to spain where he faces charges of misuse of public funds his supporters say the charges are politically motivated. flash floods have hit a neighborhood in turkey's capital ankara injuring six people and dragging cars from the streets dozens of homes and offices were also flooded while residents
