6:30 pm
i can't imagine that that was done by secondary continuation this is to my understanding is a chemical weapon expert. i can imagine a scenario with the second iraq and to me nation. there's been a second night of violent protests in the french city of nant hovan death of a twenty two year old man shot by police on tuesday protesters clashed with officers throwing water of cocktails and setting fires in several districts police say that the young man refused to comply with the orders and had reversed his vehicle into an officer while trying to avoid an identity check he was previously known to authorities and investigation is under way more details now from r.t. france correspondent jonathan that. i. was. more didn't have all clashes took place in this neighborhood.
6:31 pm
just hundreds of meters away from the place where that young twenty two year old man was killed trying to escape a police check there were clashes with some young people wearing balaclavas who went out on the streets to throw various objects at law enforcement locals who went out on their balconies or just opened their windows they too were throwing all kinds of things at them but we even saw potatoes in peace tossed at officers who retaliated with flash bangs in tear gas these trash bins were set on fire by youth police are trying to retake that neighborhood bit by bit to calm things down but the atmosphere remains highly taps and unfortunately law enforcement expect even more violence. now a group of music fans may have unwittingly developed a way to evade facial recognition tools frequently used in police surveillance by the so-called juggalos or fans of the hip hop insane clown posse who are known for
6:32 pm
supporting for sporting an elaborate style of facial makeup but now our tech researcher claims that the face paint could potentially disrupt algorithms used by facial recognition software here's how he explains it. fish recognition generally relies on looking for a few different teachers usually knows i now. this make up actually kind of replaces the jar imus was a few other large features which makes it very difficult to match it to other regular bases most of the techniques to avoid facial recognition on yourself are generally quite drastic facial obvious stations such as a master anything which completely hides the face is going to be most of that don't i don't think that these technologies to avoid facial recognition will be used for crime right away while this kind of science has come under fire before from rights groups who say it's being used by the authorities not only to catch criminals but also to spy on law abiding citizens is in only again
6:33 pm
i think that fiction recognition technology has some very useful applications especially for rainforest men but i could potentially be used maliciously such as we not sort of hospitals to sell this information was there to insurance companies or other things which might be more morally questionable i think they're absolutely consequences to how obviously recognition technology is being used it's important to make sure that we still continue to develop and understand this technology but people should be aware of how this data is being gathered what excuse for and potentially how to avoid it it may be better to limit the sort of online exposure you have in social media even if you can't about people who are recognizing your face you can limit what they can do with that information. now iran has threatened to block seaborne oil shipments along a route that he she is for almost one third of all oil exports if washington attempts to halt terrans own exports the u.s. state department's policy planning official said that america's goal was to reduce iran's oil revenues to zero. our goal with respect to the energy
6:34 pm
sanctions our goal is to increase pressure on the iranian regime reducing to zero its revenue from crude oil sales you know no need these when they see they will not allow iran's oil to be exported it means that the oil of the entire region will not be exported how is it possible that iran's oil can be exported but the rest of the regions can. it seems they don't understand what they are saying when they see iran will not be allowed to export even a drop of oil ok if they can do it then do it and see the result. than is the result so there have been calls from iran's revolutionary guard to block the strait of four names used by gulf countries for exports the strait is controlled by iran to the north and also by a man in the south the us navy has already reacted by saying it's willing to provide security for trade in the region we are steve kane a professor of economics at kingston university whether the conflict could now
6:35 pm
escalate this particular incident of trump trying to control the oil process i think is really the beginning of the chaos of having a madman in control of a complex system so i think all bets are on if he's trying to control the oil process and push it down at the same time as trying to push stock markets up and boost the economy all in one time it's like watching somebody trying to juggle thirty seven flights at once when they are now two way off one there's every possibility that he will enforce a blockade which iran will have to respond to and yes i think conflict is quite feasible because oil prices are going to anyway given the pressure of demand with a recovering global economy process will rise what regardless of watch iran does and trump will then respond to the rink creation process by blaming iran we're not seeing rational behavior here we're not saying logical thought being applied so i think it's just going to lead inevitably to some form of conflict. international
6:36 pm
we're going to take a quick break now but when we come back we'll have a look at the first quarter finals as well. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way he's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure to come out you have to go meet the center of the beach hotel with you and do so with all the great the great good you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get down there we have to go. alone. and i'm really happy to join the team for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia meet the special one i was also appreciated me to say the review beyond
6:37 pm
the team's latest edition to make up as we go so i need to look. thank you again now we are just ten days away from the champions of the twenty one thousand face for world cup and with nations that battling for a place in the final conflict have got you covered for the crunch quarter final games this weekend to mark. one of the watching on a very real world leader for the world cup twenty eight hundred studio just outside the hermitage museum in russia's northern capital st petersburg with the last
6:38 pm
sixteen stage now complete anticipation is already building for the quarter final stage starting friday there's a year of why france clash and then belgium against brazil and we can't forget the biggest game for people here of course. with the england sweden game also taking place on the same day as well promises to be a real football first over the coming days over here bring you the latest first game kicking off the quarter finals. against france are taking place in nizhny novgorod on paper it seems like even the match than absolutely can be looking for that star striker luis luis suarez. out of the match that two goals that saved him . yeah sure the fate. of course has three of the top expensive players in the world one of them forward kill a lot of talk about you know kind of justifies reputation as the world's hottest young talent cup with. very well with those two goals seven goals for we saw in
6:39 pm
sochi yeah and in particular the quality of opposition in argentina perhaps disappointing in the tournament that many people fancy them of course with their star players and he really stepped up and shone on the big stage and of course fans . play the twelfth man in this town. they played a massive part in driving the team forward as one of the of these. was. big game coming up on friday as well brazil taking on belgium in khazan the city on the volga river about eight hundred kilometers east of moscow top names there of course belgium like. now when it comes to brazil of course you have to look at
6:40 pm
their history and their tradition in this tournament there's little doubt that they can go all the way and yet they're still a favorite thing especially now what germany spain portugal argentina all the teams south of the favorites before i think brazil were you know pretty much the top sport though this as well as they still remain as they always are out there brazil the beginning in some pretty much training there with. a player stealing the limelight this time the sports star player neymar he brought his son along for training he showed that he could be following in his dad's footsteps one day perhaps sooner than we might think of course complete with the the daubing attachment so maybe not but hopefully i hopefully he'll be a little bit more of a fair player from the very start of the world cup the atmosphere has been amazing and the fans have been taken through all the ups and downs whole spectrum of emotions here it's a petersburg and moscow all over the country in fact eleven cities yet and you know there have been fans who travel other countries coming to russia in order to support the host nation and i actually managed to draw in a couple of them to get
6:41 pm
a fantastic unique view of st petersburg. st petersburg it's arguably one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities in all of russia it's considered the capital of the north of the country. and one photographer is offering people the opportunity to take in the stunning views the unique style by having photo shoots and the chill here on the rooftops. and that's all it means because i caught up at the small side for some months just on a commuter custer's from i mean from marsh i've been offered him some a cruise ship. nice so i got an approach such as you take on your staff which depend what i need so much so what are. some of the shirts so use it to go to the produce to you when you're still not shutting down appear to be so wonderful but membership. so guys just to the seville bit what do you think about this little
6:42 pm
kind of tour it's amazing i mean if you look around you have so many classy buildings all over the place and it's it's a really beautiful city you can see to cities bustling with the markets and everything yeah because what do you think about the tournament itself the football that strangely i mean it's such an open turn in the sun there's no clear favorite or we're both rooting for a shot asli i mean we're in the stadium when they play spain it was was just crazy so i suppose before in england in particular there's been a lot of scaremongering and now back home a lot of our fans i'm good with the government and with the media because they say you told us it was going to be this and yeah no actually i think you have to come here we have such a cliche view about russia and the russian people when you hear you see how what a wonderful country first of all it is and how nice and great the russian people are by i would say the world cup just adds to it because there's always plenty of people around you know all everyone from the world unite to the sort of football so it is just a great atmosphere. so many people coming from all over the wild partying
6:43 pm
in the streets drinking dot sing singing. that's what a fantastic atmosphere so far is not looks like it's just getting started almost i've not been here in st petersburg for the majority of the tournament i was in moscow for a bit and it's been amazing it's been an education to learn about this city its history the beauty of the buildings the people here are very friendly and open minded and it's been one of. stop this i think all those tourists who come in the learning are like myself really you know taking a lot of of russia's cultural history says that it's been it's been educational you could have come out differently but that's not to compare your visa visa type work start now with a composition wondering on i caught up with my city get out loans a russian opera singer and on a bus an hour for up the world cup in that same petersburg we got things off on a bit of a high note and we think. we sleep world cup is a fantastic festival for russia fantastic event for said petersburg what does it mean to you to be the ambassador for this city and we need to sell it at the fair but you have no idea this is such an honor to represent our beautiful city hospital
6:44 pm
our great country at this feast of sport but as the four world cup of football i'm really proud and happy to be a part of it august that's really what i take it you're obviously supporting a russia to go as far as they can but in terms of the other teams is there anybody perhaps that you watch what's in closely some other favorites perhaps that you want to see do well as well that i see of course i support russia but i'm rooting for football in general because of it passion and what is now happening in our country is absolutely amazing and we are rooting for the beautiful game but we are rooting for all these wonderful team has that came to russia i mean want to say thank you for all of this. and do you think people's expectations of me justified for this before well first of all a lot of media perhaps reporting there may be problems of all sorts with the organization without putting in russia have they been proven right or of things gone very much the plan we need to start a i've talked to many fans myself and you won't believe it or are amazed by our
6:45 pm
country because people here are really friendly you know fans were expecting it to be freezing cold all of that with all these dolls and bears but this is a wonderful country with wonderful people exit have a big car see the russian people are really welcoming you boy so don't be afraid to come to russia and see it for yourself think they used to see this bus. well nothing but the most and of these next night i was with does a decent of so they could give it another give me something to work up at the doors of the museum i missed you that i should be back here next year when you're the life people. love the heart and i. thought about the models you saw. so close to get off after he died c.d.'s audio zavos oh here you know most of them are you. sold and ended up. here i

6:48 pm
welcome to the alex sullivan show for the rock of gibraltar today massage and of our free fall serious we focus attention the peoples of the communities of us fascinating paraphrase we delve into the history of the culture and we talked to some interesting characters of course there was a socialist soldier pretty mills and your messages of course this is in relation to the banks issue and as ever there are strong opinions and he says campbell seems to forgotten those in the majority voted for banks that whether you agree with them or not they voted democratically for this labor not believe in democracy anymore i'd rather sad and complementary about the d.p. he says how laughable are they just what family both an m.p.'s are on alex semin to
6:49 pm
that for the republic of ireland and the e.u. itself i dish border crisis a bit light saying my dog has to go on the pavement and that is for my neighbors to clean it up green benson and it spawns two trees amazing lack of getting into do you say it has a penny ever done less in the media i can't remember one involved interview with best lady artist and i says great alex salmond show breakfast special celtic nations well represented and rightly they should be wide variety of guests all alight to fix that constant interruption a battering bravo titan alex will thank you for that and then robert and a sponsor alex he said that he's unable to lease disliked pm roberts has at least but if an understatement there alex boy or rather i'm inclined to agree with you and bats the man himself and gibraltar. i'm not joined by will cain face and these bottles as a whole local historian knows just about everything that i still know about the
6:50 pm
rock he's a welcome to the alex salmond show glad to be a. devil's gap which is a fantastic place to to talk about gibraltar but first i don't know a lot of places in gibraltar seem to have devils and then within that does not reflect the continent history most maybe why why not but people are very annoyed with the names that we even had to an exhibition called father level and he added everything to there was a very nice person but yeah we have about six in terms of angels point of view the heavenly choir of all but we have many many churches and cathedrals to cater for that you know to think like that's the devil's god i mean you can see the changes taking place i mean when you were a lad it was the sea well the sea was quite much closer than the places which are for example where i live today i used to fish and swim there once upon a time. the naval grounds which is where you see those buildings that i used to go to the boulevard to watch the and figures aircraft landing around the bay there was
6:51 pm
a guy in the back of the sea of the flag the military possibility has been a military base of one kind or another for thousands of years but that has changed dramatically in the last quarter of a century but tell us about that definitely i mean you brought us famous for what it is a fortress everybody knows the fortress of gibraltar and throughout the years we've had people of all kinds living here from the most of the spanish to the british and with the british occupation i must tell you that it's been it ethical point in british history remember this was the fast to malta to egypt to south africa when they open the swiss canal again a passage ships used to come here to to get coal and be chilling and things like that so it's been very very important in the in the life line of great britain to put it that way but the percentage of military spending and abroad has gone from what sixty percent to six percent you know a couple of decades definitely has the rock coped with that well we had to change
6:52 pm
from one thing to another for example what was once a dockyard is now a commercial yard and if you look in the docks. ironically you're going to see many spanish ships coming here to have refit instead of going to their own doctor because we're more economic in your boat and they're in spain and i hear over the half the world shipping still comes through the straits of gibraltar i think is the busiest. place in the world where ships come through with your in the defense forces yourself there were think when you were you were doing the. let the see the day that financial services and gaming and tourism dominated the economy of that oh no way tourism was always i've always culture is on the scene they're eligible so it's always been there everybody can see what they want to see the agents in the case want to see the highlights but other than that you brought us have to change through other times the situations we've been through spain causing his voters he said and i've always felt people said look it's one man's meat is another man's poison some businesses have to close other sprout as a result of what happens is it and i've always said that in gibraltar we had
6:53 pm
natural siva so much of what during the second world war the whole population was evacuated the civilians women children you know and with we went through that my dad stayed behind was a goner but we've been through many many other episodes which have been we've been hit hard but i was a he was like a catch when you got me like that and you drop it always falls on his feet i mean the lives of your heart they're well i feel if you i mean these changes affected the people we you know i faced me as a community which is a service base a bit of created shipping for anonymous is fundamentally different from a community which is based on savages financial services things of that so how are the complection of the people of gibraltar changing as the economy changes we have to change with the times and people of the rotate is a very resilient you know the what was at the moment we go for that we don't say we have to break with traditions sometimes you know we have eighty how shall i say up to two to change
6:54 pm
a subject you can adopt no we do we have to adopt it whether we like it or not we have to we have to live with the times we kind of stay living in the old colonial days you know just one of things like that things change and we have to adapt to the best means that an available i think a lot of the knows more than you about the history of the role. but tell me about the future i'm confident are you of gibraltar continuing to flourish in this new world you brought us economy is very very sound we have very well founded as we like way unfortunately have a neighbor who's always hampering us and we have to be here at their whims of whoever's governing in spain now if we had a better association with spain this would be part of the ice to start with look at this base. look at the ice so we've got there refinery that was frank was doing that refinery was going to that although spain where they actually put in their twenty's the spanish workers you don't worry when we cross the border you've got a job sorry there's no jobs only for about eighty there reza to immigrate and that he had to land became a ghost town you know so much better when you've got
6:55 pm
a spanish ancestor yourself like many many gibraltarians so that that difficult relationship with your neighbor must be a source of some some grief to you not it not me not really because what happens is i try to to convince people about the truth of things that happen i give talks and i always show things i don't just talk and i look look at this treaty look at what happened here look at what happened there and when they see it with their own eyes or where we've never been told that well i'm telling you now look how how like goebbels you say give give it a lie tell it so many many times that you do come to believe it and that's that that's our spanish friends there and some say they would even admit that they're wrong i remember once enemy of the not the only nation that doesn't do that now but i tell you one of them remember. i'm sorry for you if you will tell us what the british did us or what did to be dislodging they close the border you know it was spain no no it wasn't another thing i'm trying to to to to infiltrate is that with
6:56 pm
this culture sovereignty things that they're offering gibraltar and i said tomorrow mexico is offering course orange is the united states well even to know that if they build the wall then present some by except the bab i want to come to you tito that by. siege in the early eighteenth century i mean if i had been an english gentleman said of a scottish general defending i probably would have said i end up i don't think so the pride was too much at the time. and remember we had germans here as well we had the head of aliens fighting alongside the british here ok so that was one of the branches milestones in history and a few of the first world war both german soldiers and british soldiers had the same am will move from a siege to bravo exactly the drop of a sleeve which tells us that history has a way of fixity attempts to the future you think the rock is standing strong we're standing strong and i hope that our neighbors. try and follow our example i mean
6:57 pm
with this new government that they've got in they need to change their laws they're still very antiquated they were traditionally a center left government in spain has been friendly towards good relations and the popular party yes it's a senior royo exactly much lamented your but peter these people came in because we were going in in a very nice. way you know the first time that the in the spanish airline came to the first time other foreign secretary officially came to britain and things were looking good and all a sudden these people come in and they they crash everything they had done we even had it is futile to set a bunch of you broke you know they took that away as well. owners and we have to live with what happens next door unfortunately if you do i can guarantee the future but what i can do is guarantee you and i like salmon quick you know the drill oh yeah westin the where your many close friends but of course i need a bigger one. thank you very much i think about.
6:58 pm
the rock it's not just about high politics and high property prices there is a thriving cultural into line the gibraltar and one of its cultural icons joins me now david ben tata good afternoon welcome to examine the show thank you there's something scottish about that lame brain matter almost almost no not quite originally the name comes from rock of from the mountains if used to be been done sons of sultan on the wrong side of the bed but that's where we were and then the family when you're born here who was born here. do you think there is a genuine cultural underpinning of the rock incredibly strong thanks to franco before before the front problems and the the siege and all that we were like almost second class citizens here this is when frankel closed the border that separates the. that's right you know and we were very concentrated and all could
6:59 pm
hear was the advertising the propaganda from from spain saying that we were. i don't know were immigrants prostitutes and everything you know drug smugglers the works and suddenly we turned and said hey hey that talking about us so that they used to broadcast across the water to lose to broadcast in spanish radio spanish television and we didn't have television in those days so we would watch spanish t.v. and it was terrible the propaganda was like nazi germany but then of course. right back to the origins of gibraltar as a british territory in fairfield in them in those played in a period ornament in the hills of spain of the lot yes in fact in seventeen of four were not near route to. the queen of spain apparently had a little towel castle built there and she sat there is called the seat of the queen and she wouldn't eat or drink until she saw the spanish flag hoisted in the town and admiral wrote being
7:00 pm
a gentleman host of the spanish flag so she wouldn't die of hunger and how long the dark last for those pilots flying back i think it was about ten minutes you know just. the cream to break a fast with yes yes very much to be required gentlemen. and she must have been a very silly woman. but she was a quick oh yes but that doesn't really follow does it they were ninety six percent of the people gibraltar voted to remain and as european union members but overwhelming result in any of these terms wallace the motor forces behaved such a very well it was a very pragmatic vote the only way that we kept spain at bay was by all of us being inside the repeal union and the european union would keep spain more or less in rain so that they wouldn't do any move problems with the front or all the things that they used to do politically so we voted practically to stay in the union my heart.
