2:07 pm
them think that from the beginning we were sincerely interested in sending o.p.c. w. inspectors there we made public statements of that moreover we contacted the syrian side so that all documents including visas were provided to the inspectors as soon as possible. the u.s. u.k. and france retaliated by bombing several syrian government sites now it's not just western powers that are keeping a close eye on the pending inspection all the parties have agreed to allow the o.p.c. w. teams access unfettered access immediate access to these sites you know we can't get around the fact that the syrian government and their russian allies control the territory we're talking about a race against time as concerns grow that possible evidence of the alleged attack may be tainted or even disappear before inspectors begin their investigation could see a lopez so the young al jazeera. and russia's foreign minister says the u.s. led strikes on syria last week did not cross what he called

2:20 pm
popular amongst the fifty odd commonwealth leaders and of course this is likely very likely to be her last commonwealth summit because she's indicated that she won't travel to summits in the future and it will be many years before the commonwealth heads of government meeting returns to the united kingdom and she is a lady in her early ninety's that gives her a lot of moral authority her desire has been supported by the british prime minister and the canadian prime minister justin trudeau will get a clearer indication later today friday on who will be the next leader of the commonwealth when the polls only international airport has reopened after a passenger plane skidded off the runway during the takeoff halting all flights now the boeing seven three seven owned by a malaysian carrier known as melinda ended up in a grassy area at the end of the runway no one was hurt the airport closed for more than twelve hours while the jet was towed away there's no word yet on the cause of the accident. well staying in the country where the government is banning older
2:21 pm
cars in an effort to better control pollution some say the move is unfair for people who rely on their vehicles of making a living from them being a shuster reports from the nepalese capital katmandu. that is traffic can be a nightmare and often the pollution levels exceed that of larger cities like new delhi and beaches you know to manage pollution an accident it's not pass coverage and started enforcing an old decision to ban public vehicles that are more than twenty years old last year public bagels alone were sponsible more than seventy thousand major and minor accidents in the common devalue. twenty year old vehicles were banned from the city two years ago but the ban has now been imposed across the country according to the department of transportation as many as sixty thousand vehicles will be taken off the roads because of this decision. just a few hours outside guttman do in bank village there are a few buses transporting locals drivers here are happy that the ban has just come
2:22 pm
into effect but i know why it didn't register on all the verses on these roads bridges and a student can fail and there can be accidents but vehicles older than twenty years or even thirty years are you still operating around here. but the decision has upset some transport entrepreneurs who are often accused of acting like cartels just last month to come to the end of their monopoly on bus routes and allowed new buses now don chipp in your see this twenty year ban will impact the group is the most divided we have four wheelers operating in the hills they cost one hundred to one hundred fifty thousand dollars now you can't replace those vehicles and people will be deprived of the services if vehicles are damaged even within five to ten years they should be removed from operation capping the life of big girls to twenty years is unscientific and pallies pay high rates of taxes to support any vehicles up to two hundred eighty eight percent government officials say it takes no longer
2:23 pm
than twelve years to recover a divestment on public transport and extra eight years its profit transport entrepreneur say they already run at a loss and it was subsidies to buy you the coals now threatening to go on an extended strike but government officials say they're not going to back down. on the government the government so far has only a regulatory and managerial role in the public transportation sector we need to operate our own public transportation system like the metropolitan cities in developed countries we are lobbying and hope to demonstrate this all over the country the ban of all vehicles might not have much impact on pollution but if both sides don't compromise and vehicles are not replaced on blue roads the poorest people in the country may have less access to public transport. also sierra that might do. let's head to the americas now where thousands of students have marched in the chilean capital santiago demanding an end to profit making in higher
2:24 pm
education is the first must juden rally into the new government of president sebastian pinera last month chile's constitutional court struck down a law that would have banned universities operating for profit it's a sent back to reforms pariah. being free tuition for low income students in acted but. socialist michelle. i angry as thousands of argentinians angry at rising living costs have been protesting in buenos aires the demonstrations are taking place as the country prepares to host this year's g. twenty meeting and that's putting pressure on the government to get its economy in order to resupply reports. it was called the march of the candles thousands of people on the streets protesting against a rising utility rates in the last months. media a local resident says the situation is getting worse each day.
2:25 pm
it's always the same thing it's us the workers who are struggling to make ends meet who have to pay the price of the government's austerity measures this needs to stop now. martin time has got used to generous subsidies on services like water electricity and gas during the previous administration up to the number nine the sticker here the current government. that argentina has the lowest prices on services in the region and that the path back on government spending to reduce the pain and i trap boring investment but people here say that they simply cannot pay their bills. an example of what's been going on can be found here at la behind them. it is a pizza restaurant that was turned into a completive in two thousand and twelve when the owner decided to close down. fifteen people took over the restaurant and are splitting the profit. but now
2:26 pm
they're concerned about the rising electricity bill which has gone up from sixty dollars a month to eight hundred fifty in the last two years phone shows. so it was a shock especially for us we struggled so much to keep this restaurant open we wanted to paint it and fix it all that money we had was used to pay the electricity bill this forces us to raise our prices so less people are coming in we are afraid of being forced to shut down because we cannot pay the rent. the hiking utility services has an impact on inflation that remains one of the highest in the world the government says it is hoping to bring it down to fifteen percent this year but most analysts believe it could be much higher than the more. of the same inflation rate we had during the previous government a similar physical deficit meanwhile we have to control the prices by force because
2:27 pm
if not they will spiral out of control the historical problems of the economy are the same so it's not clear to me how the government expects to get the economy in order. the government insists inflation will go down later this year and the hike in utility services is necessary for the country to grow. but on the streets many have lost confidence that the so-called economic prosperity may come at their expense. also management also inventor has announced he'll be leaving the english premier league club after twenty two years at the helm he's the longest serving manager in league history when the premier league three times and lifted the f.a. cup on seven occasions well in a statement he said after careful consideration and following discussions with the club i feel it's the right time for me to step down i'm grateful for having had the
2:28 pm
privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years finally in one hundred sixty eight americans and the former soviet union were locked in a space race to land a man on the moon it was joining this time of cold war tension and rivalry that two thousand and one a space odyssey hit cinema screens roslyn jordan went to the smithsonian unit museum in washington to see an exhibition that honors the movie. an adventure that ultimately leads man to confront is own destiny its perhaps the grandest science fiction film of all time two thousand and one a space odyssey stanley kubrick's attempt to examine humankind's journey through evolution and technology it's impossible to pick a single iconic moment so we started the film's end and here's the bed where dave and his life question mark this calendar with it when you know intelligence
2:29 pm
is a transformative moment not just for him but for the human species overall. collins is a curator at the smithsonian national air and space museum in washington d.c. where visitors marvel at the vessels used to soar above the earth and now can spend a few minutes inside the hotel suite where the fictional two thousand and one astronaut died or perhaps was reborn. but for those fans it potentially is a kind of stimulate to kind of relive that experience of the film in a different way and for those who haven't seen the film but perhaps as a catalyst to encourage them to go and take a look at the movie an artist and fan of the movie created this replica of the set and museum officials welcomed the chance to bring it to washington not just to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the film's release but to provoke conversation there's
2:30 pm
such a close correlation between cultural products like film and television these worlds become entangled right now but a sort of your kind of lives those worlds separately but the exhibition doesn't tackle is one of the film's most important characters how the computer with a mind of its own and a threat to dave and fellow astronaut frank the film suggested relying on technology could be too dangerous for humanity a plaint recently raised by elon musk the high tech billionaire and inventor could be just something like getting rid of spam e-mail or something it's like unclear as well the best way to get over spam is to get out of humans this is just what you think you're doing today. perhaps two thousand one had the right answer humanity must be able to turn off the power switch on machines even though there's no such
