countries have tried to reintegrate former eisel fighters back into society in denmark extra even received apartments and jobs to promote integration. earlier we heard opposing views from our guests on how to deal with returning to harvest. initially britain said we're going to make them stateless remove their passports not going to allow them reentry other countries then said let's take a more light approach some of the nordic nations said let's try to repatriate them have cut radicalization programs which in part have actually been quite successful in some areas at the same time then the u.s. is now taking the lead and the u.s. defense said foreign countries need to repatriate their own citizens and deal with them using the rule of law and i think that's essential way to go they should not come back here it's as simple as that because they've committed the crimes abroad so why should the touch. foot the bill for all this rehabilitation and all the
3:05 pm
short probably they do in jail for quite a while that cost more money when these crimes are being committed to god let the authorities deal with him to the rule of law in them. you know there are lots of different stories about what happens to these people if we make them stateless stenciling they will stay out there they will keep breeding extremism terrorism and radicalization and they'll keep killing and they'll keep hating us so we have it's a problem have to deal with you can't hide from it you cannot fall back on this british passport so you know i committed atrocities abroad but all for we british passport into the mix so we get sent back oh no how do we know people have committed crimes without putting the evidence in front of them and putting them on trial just to assume people went out there so i don't want to go out of here i'm in london regularly on trial i'd like to go on in my own regularly well these are obviously the the un is so weak. the you again is so weak just nonexistent the should have. should have at the un peacekeeping forces making safe and so we

could properly categorize these people rather than these people go in to fight for whichever side these people fight. against but now because they fight for the kids to be classed here it becomes a ridiculous situation well here in russia generally the most dangerous form of this. are imprisoned though in the past a number did join the radicalization programs which have no clue as to one case has come to light in russia a former fighter sees he escaped the terror group and turned himself in to russian security services he then face trial here but was later released the court explained that he was never involved in other and also cooperated with the investigation after admitting his guilt our team members to speak with him about his time in syria. i got interested and started reading forums and watching video online i was given
3:07 pm
a phone number of a person who could help me get to syria he is sure me that those who came could leave it any time and no one would be kept there but they immediately took away our documents and telephones it was a shock for me i felt helpless everything was different from what they told me. in syria yuri shin lost a leg in an earth strike before finally deciding to flee he's now working closely with security services and has been shown a certain amount of leniency but action was one of the thousands of russians who went to syria and iraq to join. so there were. after an explosion i lost my sight and felt a sudden pain i realized my leg had been torn off i had surgery and went through rehabilitation at the same time they were making a prosthetic leg for me while i was lying in the hospital people came up to me and
3:08 pm
tried to convince me to become a suicide bomber and they said that i anyway had no leg what else could i do but i couldn't refuse directly it could have caused a suspicion. i was first overcome with joy while on a bus in turkey and only once i was in russia did i realize i had managed to escape and sort of i went to the f.s.b. department and wrote a confession i decided that it would be better i was interrogated a lot and i told him the whole story now i have a new family i married a russian muslim girl i work at a construction company and still stick to islam but i don't want to go to mosques anymore i want to avoid questions. or attention to the u.k. and its planned exit from the european union the british foreign secretary boris johnson has been giving an update on divorce negotiations with the e.u. which many have criticised for lack of progress with the story here's the rest myth
3:09 pm
. this is the first in a series of six speeches to be made by cabinet members in the next three weeks boris johnson has opened this series of speeches in titled road to bret's it and it was an address aimed at persuading people who don't think that leaving the e.u. is a very good idea that it's actually all about hope and opportunity but in the same breath saying that reversing that decision would be a very bad idea here here is a fear that some people are becoming ever more determined to stop brics it to reverse the referendum vote of june twenty third twenty sixteen and a frustrated will of the people i believe that would be a disastrous mistake that would lead to permanent and in the radical feelings of betrayal he's identified three main fears that people who don't want to leave the e.u. have they talk about security the fear that it would cost the u.k. address to fend for itself they talk about it being
3:10 pm
a pulling up of the drawbridge that breaks it is synonymous with xenophobia and also of course economic worries that britain would be worse off outside the single market and the customs union so johnson this morning tried to address those fears in turn the consensus is a speech that as i say was long on what full and slightly off color jokes but very short on detail which is arguably what might make some remain as change their minds about bret's it on twitter of course opposition m.p.'s were very quick to point this out yvette cooper said that with thirteen months to go what we need is on says and not bluster and david lammy made a similar point we've heard it all before a few bad jokes and a few long words even boris himself was sounding a little bit desperate by the end he hears under a hail of questions from journalists enough of your sweet nothings with the clarity do you think that you are the right person to be reaching out to to those remailer do you worry that this in certain approaches breaks it the we're feeding this country is because we have a pm who won't social vote for it today some of the anger that. remain is has come
3:11 pm
from your own government i accept this morning i'm not going to. persuade everybody but i've got to i've got to try and i've got to make the effort that is in the end these are people's feelings and people's feelings matter two questions remain that well also today's media conference and that is whether boris is the man to deliver this message and of course whether it's actually too little too late for. severe weather conditions prompted the if i q ation of olympic park inside korea on wednesday spectators who are us to go indoors now the number of events were postponed strong winds forced authorities to dismantle information tents and they've been trying to was in the eye of the storm for us. some very serious wind issues in this part of south korea we saw earlier on wednesday for the first two
3:12 pm
days of the olympics people were complaining about the cold and then when it finally got warmer some unbearable wind gusts here just a few hours ago i was working outside the coastal olympic park and then and we have to stop filming every other minute because it was almost impossible to work but the volunteers have to stay outside and i even saw one of them being carried away and then taken away by and i view and so there have definitely already been angry because of the high winds i saw the temporary tents with the merchandise being blown away fences falling things falling off the roofs and the trees so that is the reason obviously why the fans were being told to stay indoors but again the volunteers they just have to continue doing their job so it remains incredibly dangerous for them obviously this kind of weather is a headache for the athletes and the organizers and
3:13 pm
a number of sporting events have already been postponed including. alpine skiing and biassed flawed speaking of my own duties here at n.p.r. chang i just want to show you a few funny moments that happened to our crew a little earlier because of that very same high wind. they. would say this time. just let's wait a little bit lower. it just because. it's a hurricane the second. it's hard. for. america's top diplomat assured his middle eastern country
3:14 pm
parts that double trumps this isn't to recognize jerusalem as these really capital will not affect the city's borders or holy sites rex tillerson gave those assurances on the relations building tour across the middle east important to note that when president truman made his decision regarding the jerusalem he also made two very important points as well one of which was. where he was not advocating for any changes to the status quo as to oversight over the holy sites and secondly he made clear that the positions on the final boundaries are borders of jerusalem there's a matter of this left for the parties to negotiate and discuss well back in december president trump threw his support behind israel's claims over the city of jerusalem saying that the u.s. would move its embassy there from tel aviv the move was condemned by world leaders and the united nations and stirred violent protests around the globe.
3:15 pm
well we spoke to palestinian politician dmitri telhami he died tillerson this trip will help improve relations with countries already hundred trucks move. this is doesn't go beyond a public relations effort after the the mess that was caused by trump's decision on declaration on drugs from back in december i don't think he will be successful he known to be
3:16 pm
a lightweight in the us foreign policy especially pertaining to the middle east as he admitted himself the peace plan that he talks about it's only he have seen it he have seen points of it that these are his words so in other words the secretary of state has no idea what he's talking about. also on other side we know that how donald trump runs his white house the ones that like a corporation and he is the only one with the ideas he's only want to take credit for everything but he will push really on everybody else and i believe that. involvement at this point just seeing case something goes bust which things are going. in the middle east this really comes to the peace process or the nonexistent peace process i think is here just to get the blame later on that's all. ok some breaking news just coming into us now from the u.s.

3:18 pm
the headlines reading the specter of direct u.s. russia confrontation well moscow responded to the claims. russian citizens might be in syria but they don't belong to russia's armed forces over if they do remain russian citizens once again we are calling on everyone not to move on in time to move forward from formation and the serious approach in describing such an important issue to me because also suggested all media sources to reach out to russia's defense ministry to various facts before publishing and asked for the us side the world there has been no confirmation coming from the air on the contrary the us defense secretary said that he has a no information that a knee a russian army servicemen were and the casualties following the u.s. air strikes now a number of reports first appeared on different social media platforms last week suggesting that anywhere from several dozens to up to several hundred russian

3:20 pm
surface there's nothing much to set it aside from the thousands of other towns in the country but you don't have to scratch very deep to see that trap is very different where you won't see any non how the butcher shops there were i think at the moment over fifteen hundred prayer rooms and five mosques if you look at people on the street you won't see couples holding hands you'll see the women are dressed in strict islamic dress. there's a lot of home schooling so you couldn't really consider trap. typical french town anymore it's a little bit like a state within a state for decades it's been considered a magnet for muslim fundamentalists hardline salafism and what a widely practiced and trap has become synonymous with jihadism. and dozens of people. islamic state i was have carried out attacks on french soil have
3:21 pm
been linked. in two thousand and fifty why with her right appears to. think that. there is some plain white pride remaining bad but your heart is it's only a matter of time before we have another attack the basic problem is that the ideology that's driving this and this goes much deeper than terrorist cells planning and executing attacks that ideology is so ingrained that last year a poll of french high school students revealed thirty two percent of muslim students believed islamic doctrine was superior to scientific fact another in two thousand and sixteen showed that sixty eight percent believed islamic law was superior to french law there's also concern that in an area like this that was once branded. by the authorities. but syria is becoming the lands.
