a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're not talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution. of course tennyson's is going back into the public eye that is this year and april when he was pulled out of the london ecuadorian embassy by british police now he was suspended over 2 and a whole 1000 days which is the sum of almost 7 years in confinement the ecuadorian embassy seeking political asylum he then was moved to transfer to belmarsh prison which is a high security prison here in the united kingdom citing his 51 percent of the greeks who bailed very late u.k. back intrinsics crowd look this is a video that was built inside inmates at the belmarsh prison and taken by off his video agency ruptly and in it you can see that in the songs that someone may sit in sight you get it so he certainly was showing visible signs of a dramatic weight loss when his father did express concerns about his son's health
8:06 am
this week and as we know kiran a son was transferred to the. back to the world in that prison no you know why sick right of context it's not just the united states but to the scientists will say swedish prosecutors that want to see you in a song facing trial that allegations of sexual assault something of which suicide then that lead to an icy also believes it sets a pretext to get him extradited to the united states but in terms of to day as i say it is a symbolic and important step in terms of setting a procedural timetable for his extradition to the united states. sabia edward stylesheet bringing us the latest from london thank you. america's claims that iran attached to all tankers in the gulf of oman has had doubt cast on it earlier washington presented a video of what it claimed were iranians removing an unexploded mine from one of
8:07 am
the vessels the tankers owner though says that his crew reported flying projectiles hitting it. more than a good day with the crew say they were hit by a flying object we don't think it could have been a bomb attached to the boat. as mentioned the u.s. military central command has released a video showing what it claims is the iranian military patrol boat removing an unexploded mine from one of the tankers. iranian leader hassan rouhani has accused the u.s. of destabilizing peace and security in the middle east secretary of state my pump said washington's assessment iran is culpable was based on intelligence i mean that no one else in the region had the capacity to carry out such an attack. islamic republic of iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the gulf of oman the proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication. over the last 2 years the u.s.
8:08 am
has been implementing an aggressive approach violating international law and using its financial and military clout this poses a serious threat to the region and to global security the iranian foreign minister has branded the claim iran is behind the attacks sabotage diplomacy the u.s. has sent that missile destroyer so the region tehran denies any involvement in the attacks and has questioned the timing of the incidence of modern reports. so they were to oil tankers that were hit. i'm going to forward them but i want to know. from one of
8:09 am
them to from both of you. don't want company. to go and you've been wondering why the carnage of a. group where everybody by the book the civil the building the system when the did it will get on. let's go over the facts now the 1st one belongs to john fredrickson he's a long time norwegian trading partner of iran his relationship with iran goes back to the 1980 s. one biography even refers to him as the ayatollah as lifeline so at a time when washington is using all kinds of pressure to try and stop or running an oil exports it really doesn't make sense for iran to then lash out and attack one of its oldest friends now the 2nd oil tanker to be hit is even more interesting this is a japanese owned chemical tanker and it was hit at the same time that japan's prime
8:10 am
minister shinzo abbay was in tehran meeting with iran's supreme leader did that shit on your iran from the ancient times of the persian empire into the present day has been the great country of the middle east and will remain so i mean the future so we're to believe that at the time that iran was making nice with japan while japan was helping them to find ways to help their oil exports keep flowing despite . u.s. sanctions that iran then turns around and decides to bomb a japanese vessel in fact iran has been rather nice to the united states in the last few days a us resident who is charged with espionage was just released as a gesture of goodwill so why would they then choose this moment to fire tar paedos in the gulf of oman the iranian foreign minister job and zarif is describing these events as suspicious reports of the tax on japan related to time cues occurred while pm was meeting with ayatollah for extensive and friendly talks suspicious

8:12 am
the region and may iran's said it would read some of its commitments under the nuclear deal unilaterally abandoned by the u.s. after washington imposed sanctions this escalation sparked fears of a confrontation but both nations say they do not want war after minbar president of the jerusalem institute for strategy and security says it's too soon to jump to conclusions. i'm not sure that any investigation will really be able to come out was it was a clear result basically is our suspicions against the iranians which of course create additional tensions between the united states and iran and we'll see what follows we don't have the facts if 1st americans will produce some evidence of course it's likely that the iranians have sabotaged the ships because. they are under american pressure. it seems that they change those strategies they don't want

8:19 am
these platforms that are open and in fact under the law these are supposed to be communication systems. which are protected speech that people have it's just like a telephone they don't censor your telephone calls and why should they be able to censor you when you go on twitter or on 1 instagram this is the kind of thing that's happening now and people just need know one thing they cannot trust these platforms for anything. the b.b.c. is facing a backlash from u.k. pensioners they're angry after the broadcaster announced it was scrapping free t.v. licenses for the over 70 five's are to have has more. respecting and honoring our elders looking out for them is one thing but money's money if a 75 year old can watch t.v. they sure as heck can pay for it says the b.b.c. currently all households with people over $75.00 are entitled to a free t.v.
8:20 am
license that government funded scheme which is expected to cost $745000000.00 pounds by 2021 slash $22.00 comes to an end in 2023 tele's over the grandpas and grandmas time to cough up insured millions of pensioners many of the disabled and living on very modest incomes are going to have to sponsor the b.b. she because the corporation doesn't feel like shutting some of its hugely expensive projects the b.b.c. did the math right what they got wrong was the public reaction outrage boycott the b.b.c. there is disgrace money grabbing all sound a 5 year old should be exempt from pains a license fee. so over 70 five's have served their country and worked for decades to make our country a better place will not be church $154.00 pounds for a t.v.
8:21 am
license a week after d.-day commemorations shima new b.b.c. petitions popping up left and right anger frustration a feeling of injustice why of those who worked serve the nation for decades being put in the same level as everyone outs where are your manners even government ministers party leaders are upset pensioners have spent their lives contributing to our society providing over 74 hours with free t.v. licenses is not too much to ask here is the kicker the b.b.c. plans to make an additional 500000000 pounds by making the seniors pay for comparison that's roughly the cost of $5.00 f. $35.00 fighter jets which the u.k. is buying $140.00 of talk about priorities some are angry about the t.v. license cost say the b.b.c.
8:22 am
of today the quality of their programmes don't justify the billions that go into it with the latest public hits show hosted by a cartoon vladimir putin who has what appears to be a middle eastern accent. you see now why the b.b.c. needs more money the poor fellows can't even afford a russian voice actor public patience is wearing thin for those that are getting tired of the scandals of the scandal coming out of the b.b.c. be it ridiculous salaries for the top guys or lack of objectivity so many british people are asking openly why are they still paying to. these in the age of the internet almost certainly this idea of a t.v. being a separate box that stiffer into your computer will completely disappear. from many
8:23 am
many households and then the question do you have a t.v. will become a weird question to ask by the way the b.b.c. is still 250000000 pounds short of keeping the all of its stuff on there so if you have any ideas of who al it's the squeeze for a few more quid immigrants ginger's centenarians don't hesitate get in touch i'll appreciate it the b.b.c.'s decision comes after the u.k. government passed the cost of funding for licenses for the over $70.00 five's to the broadcaster the b.b.c. says maintaining the free license is what affect the quality of its programming adding that those least able to pay will still be entitled to a fee waiver writer mike yardley says people are losing their patience with the b.b.c. . there is a tremendous amount of anger in the country about the b.b.c. there is this feeling that the b.b.c.
8:24 am
no longer represents the voice of ordinary british people and it is of course a state broadcaster and t.v. licensing is a brand of the b.b.c. and it is extraordinary the 10 percent of the people who go to court in britain are going to court about t.v. licensing issues and that most of those people are little old ladies and some of the may even end up in prison for not paying a t.v. license i think there is an argument that people are deeply concerned about the elitist liberal direction of the b.b.c. they're concerned because it pursues certain agendas for example it's very positive on global warming this is a major issue for the b.b.c. it doesn't like mr trump it doesn't like bracks it and a lot of people feel there's been a huge political bias not just in b.b.c. news. but in b.b.c. comedy and in all the output i mean this is a very big issue. that's up for now but i'll be back at the top of the hour with
8:25 am
the latest thanks for tuning it. we are in strange situation where everybody is making a lot of noise about military action against iran but nobody in the part of that alliance actually wants to do it there's no desire for it so they hope that iran makes a mistake. somehow and then there's some kind of confrontation and then the iranians will be forced to come to the table you know begging for some kind of solution on american terms but you know i think that is dreaming that's.

a 2011 study by the national institute of health showed that only those individuals that were inactive were at a significant increase risk for all cause mortality independent of being overweight or obese city and another 2015 study in the international journal of cardiology found that overweight or obese individuals who are fit and active tend to have morbidity and mortality rates that are at least as low and in some cases lower than normal weight individuals who are unfit or inactive in other news this week the 2019 women's world cup was a flashpoint for controversy when the u.s. team kicked off their world cup run with the 13 a no win over thailand and they celebrated their goals on the field now some are asking not only of the u.s. team should have celebrated their win but even if they should have been allowed to score so many points against a less successful team it seems we've lost. sight of the point of competition and defying our own limits which means we should start watching the logs.

today thank you so i guess i'll start with you what do you think what do you give a's those comments by the time your gold i mean she called it a dangerous lie this idea that we had a will will women keep the it's sort of like you know we are we going to exercise and should we exercise them if we do are we allowed to wear nice things while doing it i think it's a vicious cycle of people who maybe are overweight or need to be healthier want to work out so you want to look good when you work out nailing a because you know when you feel good about yourself you're more likely to do something but also workout equipment can be dangerous you don't want loose clothing that you get stuck in a barbell or 2nd machine and then disaster ensues. but that same time they're telling you no no your body can't wear that nice tight spandex stuff so then you're in this vicious cycle of you these people want to be healthier they want the clothes to wear and then nike or other women and you know they're making them and people are going no no don't wear it you know the water is of us who. don't go into the future i think it's interesting too that she's commenting on.
