and welcome to our international twenty four hour news live from moscow our top story now thousands of security officers have landed in the russian city of volgograd following two terrorist attacks in two days they're trying to find those responsible and stop a third act of terror taking place this is side bombings took the lives of thirty four people leaving dozens injured and doctors are still fighting to save the lives of two critically wounded young girls who were brought to moscow for specialist treatment are going to now reports. russian children going to hospital it's one of the best such hospitals in the country and the girls are both being treated here now the nine year old received her injuries during the first blast that took place in the volgograd on the twenty ninth of december both the girl and her mother have sustained injuries and that's terror attack this second

days of the year are declared days of mourning in the volgograd region there is also an alert of fish. terror. danger in the region as well and the mood is also exacerbated by the fact that there are thousands of police who have been brought in from other regions as well as internal troops who are literally calming the city of volgograd and the region looking for possible clues and also of course to prevent any other terror attacks from happening again so obviously a very desperate kind of trying time for the volgograd region at the moment. following that time some russian m.p.'s have called for the toughest of responses to terrorism they want to bring back the death penalty of anyone responsible opponents say the current law is enough and for a closer look at that debate go to our website. the live to that seven year migration restrictions on both garia and remain here
but authorities in the two poorest countries deny this will need to a massive influx which has been the subject of much scaremongering mongering in the british press and a recent poll shows that a quarter of britons drastic action taken to curb the number of migrants is point a boy. leading up to the new year the british government hadn't released any estimates about the number of remain ians ambo gary and that they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been lifted for them and that uncertainty hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public. and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely
anywhere within the european union skepticism and public concern say the mass immigration a written all time high what are you currently doing to stop the influx of skilled workers in from the e.u. and planning to do we've made absolutely sure that it's not possible for people to come here simply to claim benefits to a putting a brace very tough measures in controls but the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying that person can cope with very many and ambo garion migration according to the paper instead of alarming the public the government mainly needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing around power making about it now it's completely absurd it's quite important for politicians to
step back and explain that this is not the end of the world but on the whole immigration and indeed free movement within europe and been quite beneficial to the u.k. economy remain and diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by that portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hardworking and will contribute to british society something that economists had a happy to back up over the available evidence is that the migration to britain has made it positive both in terms of cultural and richmond and economic in which we have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working through you and they enjoy the benefits of that so if we start setting up you shouldn't draw benefits for migrants then we can expect a quid to cool cool despite the talk politicians. talking the tabloid headlines fears of
a flood of migrants here have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in officials most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway judging by the weather here who can blame them. see london. and immigration is just one of the issues pushing people across europe to political extremes the financial crisis has seen the popularity of far right groups while across the region now there's concern about the methods being used to push their policies for. a new form of past time with america's gun and suspected members of the public are being targeted by a random us hawks trust for the fun of it marina burton i reports now on a dangerous game that has already been blamed for several deaths. you're walking down the street minding your own business and without warning police say they are investigating yet another knockout attack attackers mainly in their teens targeting
victims at random it's called the knockout game the goal of this violent and twisted so called game is to knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been randomly assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest seventy six year old woman was walking along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work surrounded me one of them as i try to get away one of them has stepped out towards me and. with the clothes is hit me in the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have been viewed
by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place in broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue struggling to curb the string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe. former n.y.p.d. officer rabbi gary moskowitz is offering his seventh degree black belt skills for free to knock out victims and others seeking protection we're going up to someone who works worker you must learn how to be a where you're more for how to fight if some go through time where the knockout attackers are for him and for him ready to moskowitz believes are likely motivated by gang initiation was something me and wipe. he hasn't officially acknowledged if ignored because the guy who had a problem is they have to really try to curb or going from they can't do that for

a marked increase in support of the far right in leo nazi groups golden dawn and all guys ation the right they did by their critics as hooligans and third heralded by their supporters as the savior for greece for the greeks and they systematical not only preach it and cultivate. but they attack systematically immigrants present golden dawn have made it further than most they have elected officials on their books including current greek m.p. elias custody at us it's not only in politics that extreme right to abuse the permeating this goal celebration by the athens he ordered to stop the itis so the midfielder banned for life from the national team despite his claims that he didn't know what the salute meant but the clearest indicator of the popularity of the far

for these parties is really based on you know and dislike of the established political regime whatever that is and so people are looking for some alternative and these parties come in and provide that but i don't think it's clear to people what they actually represent or what the consequences of their policy would be. and until skies it puts his finger on some of the reasons europe is still dealing with the financial fallout and has a quick pretty. we now know that people who are in charge of economics know absolutely nothing about money for example none of their economic models include money they just are modeling based on certain assumptions that don't include debt so in the u.k. economy as close to a thousand percent debt to g.d.p. inclusive a bank dead national debt household debt corporate debt that's a thousand percent what you iceland before blew up but i was born tells us this is
