sanctions in place prevent syrian regime from importing oil and gibraltar said it believed that grace one and its barrels of rain in oil were bound for syria however it's understood that iran has provided these documents to the u.k. proving that the vessel was transiting to a primitive destination although it didn't exactly specify where since then. and spain have become embroiled in a row about the seizure with madrid saying that grace one was intercepted because of a request from the u.s. to the u.k. i was greedy and we have been aware of the operation civil guard. have been watching the area but we are investigating the circumstances under which the us said its petition to the u.k. well as well as spain a senior iranian foreign ministry official said that the united states had asked the u.k. to intercept the ship however just bolters government said in a statement that they acted independently on their own accord the decisions of her majesty's government of gibraltar were taken to do independently waste some

path the small african nation may have found a different roadmap to success. african affairs analyst lawrence freeman told us today that china's extensive investment in rwanda has been the real driver of its development over the last few years. unfortunately i think the west is now really helping out from country by country or be under modesty when the west has done nothing nothing to actually control this restructuring economical and it's a shameful at both the united states and other european countries it's only been the last 10 or so years that and china that you ship or president xi jinping and they actually begun to go where words tell pollutes imports. where the previous 50 years nothing was done by western nations and that to me crews that are not that serious about mark received and that they use democracy as

a former psychiatric nurse whose life support systems are being switched off almost 11 years after a car crash left him in an irreversible vegetative state the call comes after france's highest court ended a long running legal battle last friday ruling that doctors could disconnect the 42 year old's feeding tubes that would leave him to die slowly of the duration in a sedated state while euthanasia is illegal in the country medics are allowed to put terminally ill patients into a deep state of sedation until the death but while some of us believe he should indeed be allowed to die his catholic parents a strongly opposed to that decision they say that as he only requires basic care and can breathe on his own in fact he's being murdered they say. i beg you to intervene to remind france of his obligation to respect the precautionary measures prescribed by the committee and not to kill my son the young my son is the life of one soul than 700 people who share this condition and that are threatened
5:19 am
please help us. with more on the case which has proved to be polarizing both. as a whole is more of an ocean. this could be the end of a complicated contradictory and absolutely heartbreaking case which has lost more than a decade in 2008 a traffic accident left vincent lumbered a french nurse in a vegetative state his brain was unresponsive his body was paralyzed he could only be fed and hydrated artificially after a 5 year battle for his life the battle for his death has started where numerous medical exams stated vinson's semiconscious condition was irreversible the question arose for the 1st time should we incent continue receiving life support assistance or not it's not a question that is easy or simple to answer and it has divided instance family his
5:20 am
wife and 6 of his siblings wanted to let him die peacefully as they put it this is not the life vincent himself would want to leave opposing them were his parents arguing that vincent is simply a person who does not fall under france's and of life legislation and that he should leave when the 2 sides failed to reach an agreement to dish a marathon started that resulted in vincent been off and back on life support 5 times after the ruling to stop artificial attrition was confirmed by 5 different legal bodies including the european court for human rights we do rely on doctors of course and as a see vincent has been in this state for 10 years so his chances of recovery let's be perfectly honest with you a route how much does he understand what quality of life does he have would you wish this sort of life on your worst enemy never mind loved one when says mother
5:21 am
was never ready to give up at one point she even released video clips of vincent's crying in attempt to show that he does feel and he is aware. but brain specialists say that this is not necessarily the case as far as it's known with logical. not realizing what he's living. normally should storm is mostly. they have nothing to do with emotions several more times the mother has tried to persuade the public and legislators that vincent should leave however every time she appealed him being taken off life support the plug was pulled anyway you know it's a crime that's all i am ashamed of france this monday been since mother made her very last plea she appeared at the u.n. human rights council in geneva emotionally appealing for her son's life. schism
5:22 am
rooms i'm sorry for being too emotional i'm crying knowledge of the top of my voice that this is the murder offense and that's the right word while we're not being listened to vincent is a human being he is not an object he's had has been held under water i agree to come here in the hope that we might be able to defend him but despite all the efforts vincent was taken off of life support yet again the very next day. that's the end of this dispute there is no longer any plea that can be made it can suspend the discontinuation of care there is no longer any legal obstacle to the discontinuation of care and so that's the end of this legal case minsan stories truly heartbreaking and controversial in many ways the battle of 2 sides of one family both wishing the best for their loved one the mother says she was fighting against a system that she believes fails to protect its citizens at some point out there
5:23 am
was an important lesson to bill learned from vincents case in an ideal world most of us or all of us should discuss death with our loved ones of course we don't especially when you're young of course you don't think you're ever going to die you think you're going to live forever but you know the organization to which i belong friends at the end we urge people to make an advanced directive but it seems that regardless whether the man's and is peaceful or not the fight is far from over he's parents and now preparing to press murder charges. rifa national party. farmers in the u.s. state of kentucky say that an increasing number of black of vultures have been terrorizing the livestock they claim they stand to lose as much as half a $1000000.00 in business as the number of predators continues to grow in video collected by locals the birds could be seen harassing a herd of cows the birds are said to be preying on the most vulnerable of the
