9:07 am
me. i'm standing a few meters away from the gates of the embassy where the bombs detonated. you can see security measures are still in place. when there was light here, you could see also the facade the nearby buildings torn off by the sheer force of the blast. the lebanese army saying there were two suicide bombers, one on a motorcycle, one in a jeep detonating devices not far apart from each other. among the dead, we now understand from multiple media reports, the attache to that embassy and a claim of responsibility from a group known as the abdullah saddam brigade. not particularly prominent, accused of firing missiles into israel from lebanon. they're clear they were targeting this embassy in a bid to get account political and militant group hezbollah fighting alongside the syrian regime to get them to pull out of the syrian area. this is another sign of the
9:08 am
spillover of violence inside syria falling into lebanon and the possibility of that dragging this country into the wider conflict. suzanne? >> and nick, what about the impact of hezbollah on the battlefield? how much help have they been to bashar al assad, not just on the battlefield i suppose but in terms of cutting off supply roots for the rebels from lebanonen into syria? >> reporter: differing reports as to how widespread their involvement has been in the campaign. let's quite clear they took a leading role in taking a vital borderity to the north of lebanon, the border there. they were pretty helpful earlier in the year in the move to the retaking that. it had been heavily fought over between the regime and rebels over a substantial period of time. there are reports of activity across syria all around the country in different parts of the frontline. sorry, you can see there's still motion behind me. still very much an active clean-up site. the key issue has been its impact inside lebanon.
9:09 am
there's been a lot of criticism from the leave niece about hezbollah's decision to be so openly involved. they will stay alongside the syrian regime right till the end. part of the background to this blast and the claim of responsibilities direct statement they want to southeast him pull his forces out of syria and amplifying the impact that's had inside lebanon. >> nick paton walsh on the spot. it's very worrying. only a couple months ago, there was another bombing too when hezbollah went into syria, the rebels said if you don't get out, we'll attack you at home, which means lebanon. the big fear that fans the flames of the sectarian in many lebanon. >> into absolutely. the white house is focusing on the region and unrelated development involving iran, president obama today making a personal push for congress to delay any sanctions against the iranian government. the president has been meeting today with a bipartisan group of senate leaders and updating them
9:10 am
on the international negotiations that have been taking place, trying to curb tehran's nuclear program. the president wants lawmakers to simply give diplomacy another chance. >> we're going to take a closer look at the diplomatic effort and the u.s. position later this hour. we'll have a discussion about that. meanwhile, it's a royal mission for prince harry. it would be, any mission would be royal. he's not known to shy away from a challenge. but this next one would test his strength. >> he looks really cold. the race to the south pole coming up. plus, the latest from the tornado disaster zone. how families are returning to their homes, only to find nothing remains the same. >> good lord above was with me. all i can say is i got three angels up there. i got my father, my grandparents, my grandma and grandpa looking down on me. they're my guardian angels today. they said you've got to stay here and take care of your family. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer.

could backfire. >> the fact that israel has a an disagreement is the not going to change the u.s.'s relationship with israel. the fact that the prime minister of israel is so vocal and an so aggressively publicly against a deal is certainly making things much more difficult for president obama. i'm sure is not particularly appreciated. the bottom line though is, i think this is a very good deal for israel. this make sure that the iranians cannot move towards a nuclear weapon without getting caught at a very, very early staining. >> what do we think about the likelihood that will iran will cooperate here? i mean, with the potential of taking away some of those sanctions, loosening the sanctions, they have cooperated with the international atomic energy agency so far. do we think they are honest brokers? >> i think to get the iranians to collaborate so far, the discipline has been quite strong on the iranian side. i think the challenge is going to come after this first deal because after the first deal, there's going to be a second phase in which there's going to
9:46 am
be a need for the u.s. to provide more concessions. in the first deal, the iranians are providing the vast majority of the concessions. congress it going to having to lift sanctions in order for the iranians to agree to the final stage of this. that's going to be tough snux yeah, it's a difficult situation indeed. a lot of domestic politics at trita parsi, appreciate you coming on the program. >> everythinging that you for having me. prince harry not known to shy away from a challenge here. but in next one could be a test. >> you like thissing >> i do. i like that. >> he's going to the south pole. >> south pole coming up, next. no matter how busy your morning you can always do something better for yourself. and better is so easy with benefiber. fiber that's taste-free, grit-free and dissolves completely. so you can feel free to add it to anything. and feel better about doing it. better it with benefiber. i got this.

hunting show in the u.s. coming under fire now for a recent hunting trip in south africa. melissa bachman posted a picture of herself on facebook with a lion she had killed on a reserve just outside of johannesburg. >>ing that photo went viral. animal lovers were outraged and a petition began asking the south out african government to ban her from the country. check out her show, it's called "winchester deadly passion." you get to see her big game hunting all over the world. she uses a bow a lot of times as well as guns. some of the pictures she has posted from the hunt show the a wide variety of animals. >> so robyn curnow joins us from johannesburg. explain this for us. what is the controversy over this? her show is hunting. she is supposed to be hunting
9:57 am
animals. is that right? >> absolutely, it appears so. this seems to be mostly being played out on social media, a lot of indignation by people here in south africa and, of course, over there in the united states saying that it's disgusting, that she's killed this lion. other people threatening to shoot her saying that god will make her pay. but i think if you're a little bit more pragmatic and a lot of conservativists i've spoken to, a lot of people who work in the conservation industry say say take a deep breath here. don't get overly emotional. hunting is not banned in south africa. you can have a license. she went through the process of hunting for a lion in the way that most people hunt for lions and other animals, other wild animals here in south africa. this is an industry that brings in millions of dollars not only to tourism but to conservation efforts, as well.
9:58 am
this has become very emotional on media, but here in south africa, those who is work on the ground say let's be more pragmatic here. >> a lot of people would look at photographs of animals like that and shake their heads. there are a lot of people involved in hunting. what about the place she hunted at? this was a reserve that was set aside for hunting as i understand it. was that lion part of any endangered grouping? >> >> reporter: no, i think you know, this is the thing about south africa. africa generally, hunting is very much part of life and has been for decades and hundreds of years. of course, the question is, is the hunting regulated? is it done responsibly? and are these animals not threatened with extinction? under these circumstances, the answer is yes, yes, and no. i think michele bachman while many feel that she perhaps was bragging by this, that melissa
9:59 am
bachman was bragging, that perhaps it was inappropriate, the fact remains that these reserves are set aside for hunting. they're professional hunters that often accompany hunters from the united states. big game hunter who's pay a lot of money to these reserves. sometimes these reserves even have lions for hunting. to there's those kind of examples. there there is this sort of balance. are they threatened, are they endangered in they're not under their endangered spies list in terms of being critically endangered. of course, lions and many african animals are under threat specifically because their habitats with being encroached upon, there's so much urbanization, that they can't roam. that's where the threat comes from they're telling me. >> robin kernow in johannesburg.
