it's just gone past the midday here in the russian capital you lie with us on our see i'm to bomb with a suspected syrian militants have reportedly been detained in turkey with a cylinder of highly poisonous sarin gas found in their possession there's arrested are believed to be members of the al qaeda linked al nusra front earlier this month a u.n. investigators a voice especially in the nerve agent was being used to buy opposition fighters in moscow is concerned the use of chemical weapons could prompt foreign military intervention in syria archie's middle east correspondent a bullet here has the details. the group was seized in southern turkey and that is according to local media reports the media are also saying that they carried two kilogram cylinder with the nerve agent sarin now turkish authorities haven't yet commented on this report and we are waiting to hear from them questions the united
4:02 am
states and france in the past have said that they believe it is a sound however that is using chemical weapons but they haven't been able to who did produce any kind of evidence to prove this the british government has written to the united nations banking new alleging we knew incidents of chemical use by assad's forces and at the same time the french government says that it is testing samples that were smuggled out by journalists but all of this is hearsay at the moment whereas on the other hand we have them here what we're seeing is fighters from the all nusra front allied with the syrian rebels caught with the sarin nerve agent gas it is important also to point out and remind our viewers that the united nations did launch an independent investigation and what that investigation concluded was that there were signs that rebels have been using the nerve agent in a matter investigation that was initiated by the u.n. chief thank you move that was criticized by damascus because they said that what
4:03 am
banking really was hoping to do was to investigate every site in syria and these three instead of reminded them of the iraqi style investigation into weapons of mass destruction the use of chemical weapons is balland under international law and there are concerns by many people that the arguments that they are being used could trigger some kind of international intervention reports of sarin gas found in rebels possessions or seems to be falling on deaf ears in the west also in his story and told horn told us earlier not even the threat of chemical weapon use can she get support from the syrian opposition. if the syrian government had been caught with sarah gas we would have her work from washington london and paris but of course this should not come as a surprise to anyone been paying attention we know that the internationally respected civil servant carla del ponte a had basically made a similar discovery and revelation on behalf of united nations jets weeks ago which
4:04 am
then was refuted by the white house we also know that in recent days senator john mccain of arizona entered syria illegally and news reports indicate that he consulted with the white house before entering syria this is a very dangerous strategy bents it's clear that there are those in washington who would like to intervene in syria on behalf of the rebels which is quite curious since al nusra front which has been designated as a terrorist organization by washington is at the tip of the spear of the opposition against president al assad meanwhile syria's main opposition group the syrian national coalition says it will not participate in the international peace conference proposed by russia and the u.s. the group cited hezbollah and iranian forces fighting alongside the syrian military as a reason for rejecting the meeting this has reports the words that he wes and british citizen have been killed in syria while fighting for the rebels are cheesy got
4:05 am
things going to take a look at now add the syrian opposition and those who might be armed on its behalf . since britain and france blocked attempts to extend the e.u. embargo on supplying on's to the syrian rebels there have been growing fears that the weapons could end up in the wrong hands and this is why the syrian opposition is made up of many divided and often competing factions and clearly there is no force that can represent it as a whole there's the syrian national council the national coalition for syrian revolutionary and opposition forces the supreme military council the free syrian army the international coordination committee the. brigade and many more and i'd like to point out that only the n.c.c. says it's open to dialogue with the authorities while all the others have officially proclaimed their goal is to topple the regime the only difference being how extreme their approaches are and here is where these two rebel groups stand out
4:06 am
jump out is officially recognized as a terror organization by the u.s. it's also known for its links to al qaeda and for being among the most highly trained rebel forces currently on the ground in syria and the fire brigade perhaps just as notorious after one of its leading commanders was shown eating the body parts of a dead syrian soldier on video but despite warnings raised by international human rights groups including the international and human rights watch the rebels have been receiving weapons for some time now according to western media reports the rebels have received one hundred sixty planeloads of arms shipments from jordan saudi arabia quarter via turkey and then with a cargo smuggled across the border here with syria but no matter which rebel group or the arms may be destined for it's also why we recognize that they usually end up in the hands of the best trained and most radical brigades. we've got more on the

you're watching our see from my headquarters in moscow it's been more than a week barack obama promised to speed up closing guantanamo bay prison but the situation at the hunger striking campaign has only deteriorated not a single prisoner believed the pledges he now. to break them months long protest against mistreatment and indefinite detention in addition the number of hunger strikers who are being force fed has reached a new high with thirty six detainees now subjected to a procedure condemned by the un as torture the number of of those in hospital has also increased now david remes a lawyer representing more than a dozen guantanamo detainees says with a lack of concrete action obama's promising speech looks small and more like smoke and mirrors as for one thing president obama keeps blaming congress for preventing
4:15 am
him from transferring detainees as long as he puts the responsibility on congress it's unlikely that he'll make major moves in addition. he set up this new system for releasing yemenis whereby they have to go through yet another review process which is likely to take a long time if it happens at all so i think that. what he said sounded good as usual but once again. it only provides the illusion of movement it's that men face a very bleak circumstance and guantanamo in terms of being transferred. to the father of one time a prisoner who also has the kuwaiti detainees in guantanamo coming he described his son's condition after almost four months on hunger strike. my son been there for

eleven years without having justice and he is there without committing any crime nor charges again it's against him it is very difficult for him to tell me what's going on there because there is a surveillance on the that is that restrictions for all the detainees not to talk about the conditions inside the camp but i can tell by the way he looks he was so skinny if this is the first time for him to put some glasses on his eyes. looks he looks horrible. he could not concentrate while he's talking to me. i have sometimes to repeat simple sentences to him. to old to three times just to bring his attention so he could understand what i am saying he has

many of the same impeccability of the u.k.'s justice system stands as a shining example but as a country green simple soldier lee rigby had to death with a cleaver in broad daylight which continues to allow a self come first murderer to make a home the boy call reports. he says he's murdered up to four hundred people with a machete in his native kenya killed police and taken part in female genital mutilation but of course ruled that twenty seven year old john is free to stay in the u.k. he arrived illegally back in two thousand and three but when the home office tried
4:19 am
to deport him he appealed and an immigration tribunals ruled that hugo suffers from schizophrenia and had made up the atrocities he was granted leave to remain in the u.k. because he's at risk of committing suicide if he returns to kenya you would think this is not appropriate person to bring into the problem if you look at the european convention of human rights it is possible for him to stay here because criminal of the sort we've seen. this is one of those he falls short of breath he's going to be allowed to walk and that's the problem john is that the fust potentially dangerous individual that the home office of tried and failed to deport jordanian terrorist suspect abu qatada has avoided extradition for over a decade qatar his lawyers argue it's against his human rights to return to jordan
4:20 am
where he could face torture not all the countries signed up to the european convention on human rights choose to follow it the french and italian governments deport dangerous individuals first and then hear their appeals i think one of the problems we have this country has been often is drastically wrong we don't seem to want to find a solution or effective solution for the problem we tend to leave things as they are all the problem is big and off something really does go wrong in the sense that something like this goes on the streets. people but it did happen over here in the soldier lee rigby was hired to death in broad daylight by two men. wielding meat cleavers the murder shook the country the suspects have been known for morrissey's and questions have been asked about whether or not the police could have done more to prevent the murder and yet a week later we learned that a mentally unstable man who claims to have killed hundreds of people gets to stay
4:21 am
in the u.k. r t contacted the home office they suggested we drop the story because a judge had ruled the claims of committing murder were false but the ruling once again raises questions about who safety the british immigration judges are protecting. r.t. london. let's take a look at other stories that are making headlines around the world the police have really protested campaign is symbol windowless traitors were protecting one of the cuts city's central park from being demolished the incident happened during a third consecutive night of protests principle the shopping arcade at the sport was outrage among activists opposition leaders have already voiced their support for the wedding saying the war helped stop developments there. and wildfires continue to rage in california forcing almost a thousand people to be evacuated from the area the latest blaze started in the los angeles national forest and quickly spread to have a two point five square kilometers the maid high temperatures and gusting wind now

threatens dozens of homes and power lines. reports of surfers that age church and man was on armed when he was killed by and in his florida home was being interviewed for his alleged links with the main suspect in the boston bombings early authorities issued conflicting accounts of what happened with one claiming abraham to target to agents with a knife his father however finds the allegations are hard to believe. from the photographs that were sent to me it's evident he was shot six times to the body and wants to the head the back of the head it looks like a finishing shot of an assassination to me it looks as if they came to his house like bandits and shot him in cold blood from the photos his house looked like it had been robbed he was questioned for eight hours without witnesses or a lawyer no one can tell for sure what happened there until there's an official
4:23 am
investigation the agents say my son attacked them but there were several armed and well trained men even if he lost his temper and became violent they could have restrained him or wound him shoot him in the leg or the arm or the shoulder but what happened was murder complete with a finishing shot maybe my son knew something the police didn't want to come out and they killed him to keep him silent. the f.b.i. says an internal investigation into the is it in a would take months to complete out is where you know what i looked at whether we're all currently stands on the issue. at the time of the shooting up to half a dozen law enforcement officials including two massachusetts state police troopers and an f.b.i. agent from the agency's boston division were present at the florida condo which was not far from universal studios but the f.b.i. has provided few details after the shooting saying that the matter is being investigated by a specific f.b.i. review team and the f.b.i.
4:24 am
may not finish its probe for several months now the f.b.i. meanwhile has been under enormous scrutiny for missing several warnings about tomorrow on the biggest warnings coming from a russian intelligence officials years ago indicating that may have links to extremist groups the f.b.i. for whatever reasons did not follow up and probe the matter to the fullest extent and that some would say led to the execution of the boston marathon double bombings and now we have this development unfolding were a man that was shot and killed by f.b.i. agents turns out according to the washington post to have been on the arm so clearly the f.b.i. is going to have a lot of questions to answer in the coming days with these new developments on this story. now back with more news in about thirty minutes and meanwhile stay with us
