has been extremely hot to brine forty degrees celsius and that heat has been very bad for us and so it's condition in fact it has significantly worse and his condition he's grown to a halt the disease has gotten worse and now he also has kidney and to live a problems he uses a mix of drugs just to maintain consciousness ok david what are you hearing in ukraine what a sense of family for example saying about his condition. well in ukraine we just recently the latest bit of news is that ukrainian human rights on the mint has published photos she said she received from the russians showing a one but still standing since all the standing in the photo now we can't confirm the accuracy of these photos but obviously this gives some people hope that his condition may not be that bad on the other hand as we've heard from you and from yuri there is great fears that his that his condition is much worse that he could
be very close to the end and of course in ukraine this cause a great deal of concern he is a symbol of the ongoing fight against russian backed separatists in the country's east as well as the annexation of crimea which ukraine and frankly the majority of countries in the world have not. recognized so there is a great deal of concern here about what the condition actually is ok david now signs off serving in this twenty year sentence for what the kremlin says were arson attacks in crimea crimea a sense also says his imprisonment is politically motivated is he a political threat to the kremlin. well it's difficult to say i mean it's obvious the kremlin views that that that way but the view here in kiev is no that he poses absolutely no threat he's a crimean who who kept his ukrainian citizenship as i said he's been
a very outspoken critic. of the annexation what he seems to be is one of many people who the kremlin feel is a threat a sense of a hunger strike is to release to try to force russians to release him and sixty four other people who he says and the ukrainians say have been jailed simply for objecting to russia's actions in ukraine. back to moscow there's been a lot of high profile file support for send solves calls french president mccraw and as we've been reporting today will be talking with them celebrities like johnny depp steven king the writer will international pressure have any bearing in this case. well look for the crown when this in self case is absolutely clear he is the truth and he has a serious criminal in russia president has repeatedly stressed in the past that he believed in the independence of russian courts and the rule of law in russia and as
president he was unable to do anything if someone was guilty of a crime in russia there are a lot of petitions all scheme for pardon that are not concede at all left without any decision lesser than the one percent of petitions are actually considered that clemency commission brian in the country is a very bureaucratic and that means that they usually find a formal reason to refuse almost every plea of a pardon some experts believe that for vladimir putin this insults case is just a normal priority after the world cup as cynical as it sounds the most important thing was that that sense of didn't die during the world cup itself that would have been a p.r. disaster for putin and nevertheless the fact that there is public solidarity with all the acts in self all over the world is of course very important ok we might know more today after the talks of course about the fate of all of a sense of your shadow in moscow thanks very much david stern in kiev thanks use

is pretty calm because people that are affected by the strike the customers that were booked on those flights who are grounded today they have been informed by ryan air over the course of the last three days they have been rebooked so none of these people will show up here today so the situation is under control for passengers however of course the situation couldn't be any worse for ryan air because the. remains will they finally sign betaworks deal with the pilots and the crews and if not how will this airline continue to operate if they keep being crippled by strikes ok and for passengers across europe information is getting out to them slowly we'll have more from lars halter in berlin later in the show thanks for now wars and yemen a spokesman for the saudi led coalition has said that thursday's air strike on a bus carrying children was a legitimate military action and was in accordance with international humanitarian law and customs now it is not clear how many children died in the attack exactly
the international red cross says a hospital it supports in northern yemen received the bodies of twenty nine children all under fifteen years but many other children and adults may have died as well. this is yemen doctors desperately fighting for the lives of children the school bus hit by an aerial strike. why witnesses say that they were on their way to a school summer camp. the devastation of the blasts showing just how powerful the strike was not about what's the through look how the attack happened in the middle of the market and was aimed at the bus full of children. and imam our shops were open and people were going about their daily lives put on money and those who died were just local kids and shop owners. who's responsible the saudi arabian led coalition the coalition has been fighting hooty rebels on behalf of the yemeni government since two thousand and fifteen in
a deadly proxy war the rebels are being backed by iran both saudi and iran of vying for power and influence in yemen but across the middle east this conflict has been unrelenting for civilians who are often caught in the middle even rights organizations say yemen has become the world's largest humanitarian crisis and peace is no way in sight. according to the united nations over ten thousand people have already died with over two million people displaced. last week the un announced that new peace talks will be held between those involved in the conflict these aren't likely to begin before september meanwhile the fighting continues. its dishpan now in a rescue ship with eighty seven migrants on board has docked in southern spain after being barred by italy and malta the vessel is operated by a spanish group and pick up the migrants off the coast of libya for the margins on board the most hazardous part of their journey may be finished but their struggle to fill their dreams in europe is
a long way off the w.'s correspondence all that firsthand when he visited an encampment in southern spain. nothing is left of his heart it caught fire during the night displaced living. in twenty fourteen city became to spain from ivory coast to find work he ended up in this slum near the town of under lucio along with up to a thousand others fires occur frequently due to the flammable building materials gas canisters and forty degrees celsius heat. you know. many of you. know or good looking for. his dream of a better life in europe has become a nightmare he has no residence permit and now he has no home.
he can only work illegally on one of the many fruit and vegetable plantations don't have no right to walk. you know you don't have no money. you know you don't have. his friend. is in the same position except he's a newcomer in spain having recently arrived from senegal he lives in this hunt he says the roots taken by refugees to europe are always changing currently entering europe via the western mediterranean seems to be the safest. root from libya to italy has lots of problems it's almost like a war you can get killed so now many of us are coming to spain through morocco. spain's new government is taking a lenient stance with migrants but the right wing conservative opposition is in
disagreement and the spaniards are worried. because how many immigrants to cause us problems that's just how it is. spain is a country with high unemployment. there's just not enough jobs for so many people. but on. other spaniards see things differently. but volunteers for an aid organization and supports migrants like any way he can. he helps vegetables and takes care of the red tape and tony and sees the refugees as an economic factor the plantations in the region couldn't get by without them. thanks to these people many others are getting rich. the immigrants live off what little money they can earn so they're cheap labor. and i remember one of the
problems they have to put up with everything and never complain. wants people to know what's really happening in europe but he's not ready to give up on his dream of a better life. a move. now i'm living here. to get. my family. to help myself. you know. what my future. eventually once he saved enough money. intends to return to ivory coast my son needs me he says all of africa needs us but that's in the future right now he's got to figure out where he can sleep tonight. ok let's get more on the story now with a journalist i may have a last question he joins us from a part of
a drop in the least of problems i'm a good morning to you how is spain coping with the increasing number of migrants arriving in the country. well the numbers are indeed very high so far the risky teams have rescued nearly twenty thousand people and now the weather is good you have nearly two hundred people arriving daily. and. the self is close to collapse according to police and social services officials the government has pledged more resources to deal with the influx but the interest on the prime minister insist there is no migration crisis in the european union and the spain believes it can manage of course we don't of the european union ok now spain might be taking this open borders approach but there's a very different sentiment in italy and malta which turned that vessel on our report around didn't allow it to land why is spain taking the approach that it is.
well. the prime minister. rescuing people from disease a matter of human rights but there hasn't the government hasn't changed. the polytheists the refugee fees or their immigration laws and those who can apply for asylum they will be welcome but those who are mere. economic migrants will be sent back to their countries of course source of anything much easier than germany or france because migrants are very likely to keep on travelling north they were brought in one to stay in this being so for. spain is a quite different approach but there are signs of accept that spain is a solid border of the european union and he's. just asking the european union for
some feedback and some resources in order to deal with with we do see do ation at the moment public opinion on all of this does the government have a majority. backing it for its approach. well you know we heard that in the report. and it is true that for example a new leader of the people's party by look at other people's bodies the main opposition party is already saying that is spain cannot host all the my granted are arriving that we cannot keep papers to a million people so there is no doubt surging movement regarding people's attitudes to immigration but despite the society braces itself for being very tolerant and open minded but of course the big influx.
if these dollar and is rather fragile and maybe we can just seen some sense of. any society in the coming months if if the influx is getting really really serious. we will have to wait and wait are many thanks very much for that jaime of alaska for us and. thanks very much. we have some sports now on tour de france winner darren thomas received a hero's welcome when he returned to cardiff wales thursday a sea of supporters lining the streets near the city's castle is thomas donning the winner's yellow jersey did his victory ride thousands of screaming fans there ceremony congratulating thomas' achievement followed he's the first welshman to win the tour de france. well one of our big stories they if you are flying
ryanair be prepared for some real difficulties brian europe's biggest budget carrier is bracing for mass travel disruptions on friday as pilots across europe begin a coordinated twenty four hour strike germany will be worst hit by the industrial action with two hundred fifty flight cancellations at ten airports i was no frills that it would be scrapping some four hundred out of two thousand four hundred european flights scheduled for friday as pilots and island germany belgium sweden and the netherlands walked off the job more than seventy thousand passengers will be affected by the strikes. over customs refunds all the option of rerouting that journey. well let's see how this all works out in real life. as one of ryan as european bases laws what's the situation there right now. well the situation is pretty calm right now even though we had a little bit of
a morning rush right now but people coming in shaking in boarding their planes what we do not have here today is tons of people looking desperately for their flights and being worried about their vacations because as you just pointed out ryan air has informed to passengers over the last couple of days if their flight was affected by this strike so the situation here very much is ok for customers however it is obviously not ok for ryan at the espy got problems on the horizon i'm going to talk about that in a moment but let's first have a look at the report that we had the coast lines are popular because people love a bargain but since she started this success story some twenty years ago there's also been a flipside not only stuff but the cost of cheap travel very often passengers also have flights delayed flights delayed or cancelled due to tired scheduling and a lack of flexibility in the airlines business model. these passengers have to trek
across open tarmac to get to the airplane but they don't mind by flying a low cost carrier they can save money but often a flight with ryan air easy jet and others can cause worse inconveniences than that in many cases flights face delays or simply counseled almost every budget passenger knows the problems regardless of strikes consolations out on the raw is this year britain's easy jet comes with more than one thousand two hundred flights in june last year the figure was two hundred thirteen irish compared iran air cold of one thousand one hundred flights this june compared to only forty one during the same period last year. airlines blame the weather or understaffed air traffic control but it's a fact that cramming as many flights as possible into a day is part of their business model it's one way low cost carriers keep costs down experts say the budget airlines have overreached themselves with their super
tight schedules a single flight delayed can stop or timetable and even if the plane shows up luggage doesn't always arrive with it in europe eight budget items pay a one thousand passengers are reported missing each year passengers have no choice but to accept that a bargain flight coming shouldn't laws will ryanair and other budget airlines actually have to rethink their business models which relies on squeezing employees very. i think that you'll get out absolutely we've seen that over and over again of course ryan air being the most affected airline because they're basically the king and the budget six meant they kind of invented it and they put the price pressure on nine year old flights to london fifteen euro flights to some people expect these days that you can fly to your vacation destination for about the same price as you going to pay for your first cocktail of the. beach that is obviously not
a sustainable model and if people are only willing to shell out that kind of money of course you cannot pay your pilots and your crew at decent price so this has run its course and over the long run i think this is not going to work out anymore. last heart of the. father thank you very much. and here's an interesting question how much influence does a company have on how its products i used gunmakers constantly face that question but now german drug company for seniors has a similar problem and says the u.s. state of nebraska illegally obtained two of the drugs to kill a man by lethal injection company fears were petitional damage if its health care products are used to kill a human being so enough was in use in taking the state of nebraska to cause to stop the execution. executions by lethal injection in the u.s. carried out in chambers like this for years some twenty european and american
companies have refused to sell drugs to prisons for use in executions now nebraska state has managed to obtain a muscle relaxant and a chemical which stops the heart germany's for seniors carby says it is the source of the drugs it's ask the federal judge to block the state from using them in an execution planned for next tuesday. it says while for seniors cubbie takes no position on capital punishment we strongly object to the use of products for this purpose products were developed and are approved solely for patient care and we expressly restrict the sale of our products for use in lethal injection procedures . that's a jump today. she's
