here. today thanks so much for joining us on the program. over the last few hours police have been clashing with protesters in a french town near the city of. now using crowd control methods to break up an environmentalist. oh my god the. world thank you for your little girl you will be if you feel.
like. you've. got her out that was this land was scheduled to be part of an airport development many people are against that people moved into the land they took over they built a coal mine over many years many people say that this is now the family land they say from here and they want to protect it the government said they had to be out by the end of the winter they were given until last week to leave they've been given in recent weeks grace and what's happening now is this is the battle between the police the c.r.s. and the government and the protesters the saddest who say that this is their land and they will do anything they can to defend it if in throwing bottles they've been throwing fire at the place and the police have been responding in kind with tear gas at times it felt like this the sky was raining with tear gas here and a colleague's artie's video agency will caught up in that take us on friday thank.
you very much because you. already are you ready for the fury and i want you to see well as you can see now the zionists have let fly to one of these a barrier case the police are just about one hundred meters down in the distance ready and waiting for whether they going to charge forward as you can see this throwing foil works except the police and the police do responding calling to that to tear gas and i just want you to just look around me and you can see all of the smoker. that is because it literally has been raining down with tear gas here in not to down the land we are surrounded it is incredibly difficult to breathe we keep being moved on by that gas is actually chlorine at my skin because it hurt so much and the people here are prepared they are also firing projectiles in the
direction of the c.r.s. into the police and they just understand that one of the c.r.s. offices has been injured by one of this project as a spin taken to hospital we've also seen some of the protesters here injured as they've been involved in those clashes with the police the tear gas just all around us i mean it looks like we are covered in smoke if you look behind me there's a fire up in that in the background so just want to take you to have a look at this down this is one of the rocks that they've been throwing at the police and gendarmerie some of those have apparently hit some of the gendarmerie and i also want to take you to have a look at some of the other things have been thrown including this one person who was attempting to throw a monotone cocktail at the place but it didn't go so well. it's expected that this could take
a couple of days the government is determined that it will do everything within its power to expel the hundreds of scientists who made this land their home this saddest say they will do everything to defend the land that they say is their home . israel was behind a missile attack on syria's largest military base that's according at least to russia's ministry of defense. number of rockets hit an airfield with at least a dozen casualties reported let's get more updates now from franco in the studio with me now we obviously news coming in throughout the morning what we know. so far what's come from russian of id today well the israeli air force regularly targets pro raney and pro assad militias in syria but usually they don't comment on it just like they didn't this time around but the timing of this apparent airstrike in syria by the israeli air force is really putting things upside down for everyone.
how could this affect the syrian is going on the situation on the ground what impact do you think this will have while again i'm saying that it's turning things upside down because of this buildup things happening in syria in april for a second year in a row could have put the world on the brink of a global called like remember that last year in april allegations of a chemical attack pushed donald trump towards firing tomahawk missiles at syrian troops and then u.s. russia ties were in tatters and the syria peace process was thrown off the tracks but it is april twenty and last saturday we had reports of corn gas being used in duma that is a town besieged by damascus unlike last year there was no military response from the west despite trump obviously saying look all options on the table is going to
be a price to pay washington actually denied any sort of exactly but there were signals that one could have been in the offing donald trump said the president assad is an add on. the leader of france joined in emanuel macron saying that the syrian government wouldn't get away with it but something they did too was blaming iran and russia once again on the other hand last week lattimer putin warned against as what he actually did was that russia is in possession of intelligence suggesting that the militants and. were prepping a chemical attack as a provocation then following this release of corn gas the washing foreign ministry said that anyone who dares to attack syria in response will face the most serious consequences and then as we see apparently boom israel launches this attack on the
largest syrian army airbase so i mean what's next here are factors that play a lot of agents have got the security council meeting coming up later today presumably we're going to see some sparks flying. what could happen next for the syrian. well first of all the question is whether they will be a follow up from the air force as the likes of the u.s. and france as you were saying the security council is coming up so first of all we will also have to hear what the envoys of the specific countries will have to say there but again i just want to look at this and context and for that month's watch a report on the allegations for the chemical attack by my colleague or i because the. east ghouta is almost over ninety percent has been liberated by syria's government the army of nuestra the al qaeda affiliate easily mists they've lost opting to take the busses to rebel territories.
then the vast majority of rebels surrendered and negotiations are underway for the handover of the last stronghold on the cusp of victory as is now tradition assad goes against all reason and logic he's won this battle and launches chemical weapons at civilians according to his enemies he contact helped put the united
states continues to use all efforts available to hold those who use chemical weapons in syria and otherwise a cannibal the regime's history of using chemical weapons against its own people is not in dispute. russia warned repeatedly that this may happen they had intelligence a month ago that rebels were preparing to stage these attacks why not if they can't fight if they can't win why not try to provoke an international intervention it's worked before that is not to say we're jumping to conclusions or meanwhile in the besieged enclave of eastern ghouta rebels are continuing to leave for the last group has agreed finally to be evacuated to the north of the country to a province we spoke to some doctors who work in duma are doing previous reports of chemical attacks in the area. there was one case i faced on january
thirteenth at six am reports came in about the strike and the use of chemical weapons six people were hospitalized we examined them and found no problem with the airways they were just scared and i think it went into it and it was impossible to talk about it even after analysis of blood and clothes. there were. there were also cases on january twenty second of february twenty fifth during the medical examinations nothing must found people had the symptoms of panic and fear but not poisoning. so we discussed the latest situation with max abrams assistant professor of public policy in the department of political science. the key determinant for attacking civilians is weak helps when governments are losing in bad or when it looks like regime change is imminent the structural conditions are going to scenario. up us here so she hasn't been as secure in europe
makes absolutely no sense for your side to him to jeopardize when the incentives go in the opposite direction that the rabbit would want to hear this kind of an attack on the regime i don't think that we should be stars. strictly of the so-called white of these are told him or fall on their readers if you will have a political agenda are independent evidence certainly needs to be gathered. as a tornado of media speculation over the scribbles continues to swell it's now being reported that and you are being offered new identities by u.s. intelligence has both the former russian double agent and his daughter appear to be recovering follows a nerve agent attack last month in the english city of salzburg whenever a family relative believes there would be no reason for you to abandon their home in moscow victoria screwball spoke exclusively to the ripley video agency after she
was denied a visa to the u.k. . you have to suppose i ask and you personally to reconsider the decision to diffuse my visa they are scared that i will find out something more that he will tell me something yes they try to many please me not the crime one but m i five at first i was happy that he called but it was clear that she wasn't speaking her own words she was being prompted you can hear it in the recording but there's a start she was told yes you can talk which meant that she was being guided. meanwhile the british foreign secretary boris johnson has branded the opposition labor party leader the kremlin useful idiots after jeremy corbin refused to blame russia outright for the poisoning and he said he takes a closer look at foreign secretaries recent statements. boris johnson's been caught out a fair few times in his role as british foreign secretary sometimes doing the wrong
thing other times saying the wrong thing and this time his blunders have taken the form of the written word is after a series of unfortunate events at the u.k. foreign office having to delete the old tweets and post new ones boris johnson felt it was time to get the facts in the script straight once and for all. boris writes that britain's porton downs chemical weapons lab that identified the substance he used had been developed by moscow well we remember the porton down interview slightly differently we have no verify the precise source you have not been able to establish that this was made in russia as i said it's our job to provide eat you know the scientific evidence that identifies for the particular and their future is typically you will not tell you to look cool down to say where it is from we haven't yet been able to do that. within the last decade russia has investigated ways of delivering nerve agents probably force us to nation and as part of this
program has produced and stockpiled small quantities of novacek hold your horses the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has confirmed the destruction of all chemical weapons in russia actually the elimination of weapons that the last facility to hold such chemicals was in fact a knowledged by the international watchdog last year. boris writes that russia has an obvious motive for targeting sake a script well that appears this obvious motive has zero value russia knows the double agent wasn't of any importance off to me having to be as part of the spy swap. he was handed in to britain as a result of exchange so why should russia and even. command that is of any importance or that is of any value it's unimaginable why not take the death of one spy into another that seems to be the firm favorite for boris
the fate of alexander litvinenko murdered in london in two thousand and six demonstrates the kremlin's willingness to kill someone in this country the russian duma has actually passed a law that allows the assassination of extremists overseas first of all it's never been proved moscow was behind slip an anchor's death and secondly former spies are not exactly stream ists but to follow boris's logic the kremlin is simply willing to kill someone in person after listing these facts boris comes to the same old conclusion that only the russian state has the means motive and the records to carry out this crime a lengthy and thorough investigation carried out by the best scotland yard detectives military and come to expect it oh wait now if by the man becoming rather notorious for his gaffes or restraint we've also spoken to james tor a chemical weapons expert he believes it's easy to make nerve agents if the structure of the chemical compound is available. it is not possible to know where
a nerve agent has been produced whether it's whether some one country or another it's not possible to to identify that by to a certain country that there's many well published formulas of nerve agents and the structures are known to the toxicity profiles are known so so many people can make nerve agents they know what structures to go to go to work but the only way you could get the exact source is if the nerve agent were not very pure so if it were not very pure and you found at that particular site the same impurities in the sample as you're finding it some other location then you could say there's a high probability it came from from that source but unless you've had samples like that it's hard and if if it's made by a nation state that knows what they're doing and the purity is there then you don't have any impurities to mark against it would be very hard to to name it to a specific location or a particular laboratory. general election in hungary sees voters backing the
welcome back to the program hungary's prime minister has victory rally in budapest following sunday's general election almost all the votes are in now the ruling coalition has won one hundred thirty four seats that gives them a two thirds majority addressing supporters said the result gives him the opportunity to defend hungary. i mean you know start regarding the results so i can tell you dear friends that it was a big battle and we've gained
a decisive victory we've created the opportunity for ourselves to defend the country our country hungry is still not where we would like it to be but it's already started along the path it shows for itself we're going to move together this way all strong and to migration starts has one support from anti establishment parties across europe but from e.u. officials who will vote shortly on whether to strip of its voting rights political analyst the tiller told us tackling the gratian is proving a vote winner. telling the truth orson majority of the congo army m.p. for voice and standing by to defeat this campaign was messy chained and decor and messy keys that the immigration the stove and eat towards be not allowed for migrants to enter or to
hungary and that was the fetus messaging of course i can expect for. tensions between grass so that you will be a uni on and. government because or band has already said. leadership will do your european union on one t. . e implement you will measure us on immigrations polisi in. the hunger the i got them and. how with the rocketing crime rights and a widespread disillusionment in the corruption ridden system candidates for july's presidential elections in mexico face a pretty hard battle winning voters over face an even tougher struggle though in a small invasion of the town of show that's because it's long banished all political parties are to have as a. signal
to. have complete control over the city our council he's in charge of giving security to our community. we are trying to keep the invaders out so they can take away what little is left of the forest. it's not resistance started because of the incompetence of those in power especially of the kidnappings attacks and extortion and clearly over the issue of the devastation of a sacred source of life the forest. over matters imo we started to say that we'd done with parties with division that would
speak for itself the device the community is a communal government without political parties without a city full government with the cultural heritage of our ancestors and established through dialogues around two point five. times the community became more united there was more sympathy with our brothers than maybe. now it's a hundred years since russia chose a new destiny a revolution which saw the overthrow of the country's last wealth and to tell a story over the romanovs. a new interactive projects you can learn more about the family through a massive collection of photos about four thousand of them some taken by the romanovs themselves over the next one hundred days their life story of those royals will unfold on four different social media platforms each will have their own unique content those behind the project shed some more details. so last year when
we were preparing one hundred seventeen life a project about the russian revolution of one nine hundred seventeen we struck absolute gold when we've discovered about four thousand photos of the vermin a family in the state archive here in moscow yeah so it turns out that the romanov family were complete photo geeks they had their own cameras kodak sent them some very special brownies they even had a panoramic camera we have a project coming up which is incredibly exciting we're going to use these images in a very unique way. so we picked up on this archive we've got you service and we've got the opportunity now to publish it and tell stories. so we're creating what we're calling kind of a social media picture puzzle while it's only running for one hundred days which is going to make it very condensed intense you don't have to follow every single platform all of these photos are not going to be pasted. so you tube is going to be kind of music and facebook i think would be a little bit more lyrical would certainly be looking at a kind of
a family the took a lot a lot of photographs of itself twitter would be factually driven the news driven in the style that you used to and then of course there's used. to choose you know work and then get on to the. regulars know i'm out of here. now ahead of this summer's world cup here in russia the. campbells been visiting one of the host cities volgograd in the south of the country he was the star attraction of a football festival which has been traveling around the country during his long career carol played seventy three games for him and even kept in the team as well he won the premier league twice played in three world cups and managed to get this exclusive interview with. i'm sure in the deafening the world cup we rushed in but so far people being
warm and open the park has been great it's a great set up obviously going to be slightly bigger with a big screen for the close to the water's edge but from a the gauge went everyone's happy russia will put a fantastic show on just like sochi amazin they want it to be proper i think all the journos who who reported you know the highest level and i mean you know it will break a lot of barriers down and i think probably surprise a lot of people back home in the world it's all been put together. in the first black captain to lift a cup probably the whole lot of people though that. is you know. captain they've been a couple of final and it's great to soak up those steps as old wembley steps and
and have a little bit history as well. and politics should never mix and. the sport is the winner that's the main thing and that's what you've got to do so everyone has to do to kind of win the day regardless of what's happening above. above sport. allow it to happen because you have to just let it happen because that is a different kind of different galaxy. yes it does clash for sure it's inevitable that it's going to clash but. keep it separate. it was england's sol campbell that saw the headlines for myself and the team here at all t. for this hour to join us again in about thirty five minutes for the latest updates on those global headlines and see that.
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics or business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. apply for many clubs over the years so i know the gaming so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super manager kill the narrowness and spending two hundred twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else not to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful game but
great so one more chance with. the base it's going to. zia's says harlan kentucky. boy susan it was very funny. money city with almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the pay rises showed. that it was love to see these people the survivors of disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in the million years i would see that and it's happened it's happened.
here on sophie shevardnadze and islam in europe has long been viewed with suspicion by the majority accused of not representing european values is that really true and can it be changed well i ask sharing han khan denmark's first female. islam in europe is a magnet for controversy used by the right wing to stir of fear of folks feared by the people in the wake of center attacks and the refugee crisis and we do extremists inside the muslim community for resisting integration and feeding mistrust come to a vicious circle.
