that episode wasn't strange enough there's been a nother cloak and dagger incident involving north korea here in europe you may remember that break in it happened last month at the north korean embassy in the dread well over the weekend north korea finally responded calling it quote a grave terror attack a group of armed men had charged into the building and tied up the staff spanish authorities have issued arrest warrants for members of the mysterious french human rights group called free choice and also known as child huma civil defense it claims to have shared information from the raid with the f.b.i. to group posted this video to you tube reportedly from inside the embassy it shows a man destroying portraits of the kim family for joining me now is oliver hotham managing editor of news dot org oliver this is such a strange story what is going on here. well you know it's difficult to say
6:33 pm
when we first heard about this news it was just the u.s. to go ok summit with kicking off and annoy and it really seemed quite unusual quite unprecedented there's never really been something like this happen as a north korean embassy anywhere in the world and then slowly information becomes trickle out we began to hear from the spanish authorities that they had identified a socially an underground human rights organization as you said called a civil defense and that organization came out and took responsibility and then we've had the north koreans now coming out response calling it a terrorist attack but still a lot of the details remain sketchy you know the spanish authorities have said the members of the most critical sistar were beaten up and gagged one of them was put under pressure to defect but as yet we haven't really heard all that much from the group itself or from its legal representation in the us either. this seems to be
6:34 pm
a pretty dark turn in as far as human rights groups are concerned and the north koreans of course calling it a terrorist organization is a terrorist organization i mean of course the hands on who you ask the north koreans are going to be inclined to describe it as a terrorist organization i think from their point of view they've insisted that they committed no acts of violence they've insisted that everything they've done has been legitimate in the context of there are i guess political struggle against the if the north korean government you know it's a quintessential story about you know one of the terrorists is another man's freedom fighter i suppose and the north koreans of course believe that the united states has had some kind of role regardless of whether that's true or not that's what they believe so i'm sure and imagine that it's going to have some kind of impact on the talks between the two sides well the fact that in their statement on sunday the north koreans said that they were aware of reports that the f.b.i. had been involved somehow this that they were aware of links between what they
6:35 pm
describe the and to the park a group and the u.s. authorities but they also said that they they didn't come out and straight say that they believe the united states was involved in the fact the north koreans haven't said that already suggests that there is still a willingness on the part of the north koreans to engage in dialogue with the u.s. i think we're where we maybe two years ago when we saw a similar incident we saw the north koreans accuse the u.s. of a century plus an assassination attempt against kim jong il and we would have seen the north koreans as he accused the americans of committing hostile acts. say all cards are on the table however have them thank you. confusion it still surrounds the outcome of last week's election in thailand the first since a two thousand and fourteen coup over the weekend protesters accused of election commission of cheating after a series of counting errors final results won't be ready until may ninth meanwhile parties supporting and opposing the military junta are both claiming the right to

6:37 pm
so if you want change you guys need to step up. there was hope that with this election things might change in thailand but that hope now seems to be turning into frustration. that we basically we were younger generations the new generation we have the fourth quarter obviously sick sad and wasted it was that into nothingness about and answering questions as well as the i'm certainty of a type of fix i some say patience among thailand's younger people is wearing thin a situation that can jurors up sinister memories this is the sight of. one of the darkest chapters in modern thai history some forty three years ago around one hundred students were shot and beaten to death on this very field at bangkok's thomas at university they were among the thousands who had taken to the streets to protest because they were unhappy with the direction in which the country was

headed a sentiment that's not at all unlike the one spreading among young people in thailand today. at this bar across town the patrons are trying to take things with a pinch of salt. when on election night the election commission said they couldn't continue to count the votes because they didn't have a calculator co owner of a gun leave the house the one offered free drinks to anyone who stopped by to donate one his form of protest we are educated people so we know what is right what is wrong but a thing is it wrong so you're wrong this cannot happen we make up for it if you sad about my generation and in life i don't want to have kids because they don't want to know that you're growing up in this. kind of thing. it is the young who will eventually be responsible for thailand's future but it seems that more and more of
