have you back tolerance towards immigrants is something norway adopted centuries ago tens of thousands of people displaced by wars in their countries have found their way to the welcoming land of the vikings however some modern migrants are being accused of taking their new home for granted as maria financial reports. tolerance is no way as well known trademark maybe even to well known thirteen percent of the country's five million population a remembrance but it seems it may be suffering from its own hospitality problem to sixty years until i was like these green everything that we do but sometimes people call these parts of the city started as if it's immigrant i mean it's a population for years it's been home to a large number of outsiders who believe in peace and many locals are treated respectfully so decided it's not enough a while ago the radical islamic group demanded to make its independence from the city and the sharia law territory to feel literally out. in
5:15 pm
a letter sent to some of the country's politicians and journalists and known extremists have threatened to carry out and nine eleven in no way if their demands are not met. that it's really something really i think it's more a lot of stuff really to be taken seriously but this is not the first death threat coming from noways muslim community in this we do know a pakistani born in mom preaches those not praying should be brought to prison those not fasting during ramadan decapitated is it possible to kill a human being with you. no problem all weapon is made to kill we hear concerns over how some immigrants bring part of their cultures to no way from the head of the country's hunting union on our hunting course is there were pending for muslims who seem to have more interest in. nature and helping
5:16 pm
attending courses is one of the two legal ways in no way to get a personal weapons license if you don't respect religion rules and you want to do. then you can go back to your country opposition party member he himself came to no way as a political refugee in the late eighty's he says the ruling labor party is importing voters immigrants are indeed among the parties strongest supporters but the prize is high how can you integrate minority when the minority is actually the majority in a society who is going to learn from who who is well you are. such rhetoric is too familiar to every norwegian a homegrown terrorist killed seventy seven here last summer protesting against the takeover of muslim immigrants also one towards one of those on that island last july his comrades and friends were killed right in front of his very eyes he says
5:17 pm
he survived to fight for what brave it tried to destroy the most important lesson is that we've never paid. ground of values for ground. it's a fight with the fight for democracy or. for justice it's something that we constantly need to focus on despite concerns of the threat to kill made by some immigrants may be a real noways unlikely to give up its tolerant small toe in fact it's quite the opposite for many the only response to brave extend to immigrants motivated massacre is seen immigrants embraced more than ever before more if an option r t no way. a local council in britain has removed three children from their foster family because of the parents' political views social workers accuse the couple of belonging to a racist political organization due to their support of the u.k. independence party or my colleague bill dodd spoke to paul nuttall an m.e.p. from ukip who described the decision as outrageous. it's an absolute disgrace and i
5:18 pm
think it's a case of desperation really from the labor party we have a by election rather than exactly in the same area where this terrible incident has taken place on the council of going to heaven persecuted this family because they are members of ukip i'm not too sure whether this is a coincidence or not now your party is that critical of multiculturalism and political correctness is this incident an indication that perhaps you're being misunderstood in your failing to communicate your policies. absolutely not i think our policies are quite clear i think the fact that we're now around ten to twelve percent in the opinion polls goes ahead and shows that and the fact is that at miliband the leader of the labor party has come out and said there needs to be an investigation into this that michael gove the conservative education secretary has come out and said that this is a disgrace so we're getting backing not just from the people because the public is on the whole behind us on this they think it's a disgrace it would also getting the backing of the political parties as well so
5:19 pm
you agree with the whole idea that no matter what political persuasion couples are they should be able to adopt children. oh look this corporal have been foster parents for the past seven years they have been giving children homes and doing a good job what happens here this is a case of persecution i think it's absolutely wrong the people who will suffer as a result will be the children because what will happen to these children now look at but this isn't isn't bringing children up in a political environment all of consideration for example would you be happy to see members of the british nationalist party adopting or fostering children for a political party accused of racism. well look i think each case needs to be taken on a sole basis and we are not a racist party it's quite clear that's written into our constitution we actually van members who have been members of the british national party in the past we are completely and also the unsub races could ukip see this is a political advantage and bring to the attention the fact that the adoption
5:20 pm
fostering laws in the u.k. really do need to shake up understand that seven out of eight parents are rejected the. possibility to foster or adopt it is that an area that perhaps you could now pursue. well i think it's something that certainly needs to be looked at i mean there are seventy thousand children in care in this country which quite frankly is obscene that is too many and what we need to be doing is getting these children out of care and into good homes because you know the statistics don't rely on those children in care are more likely to go or can end up in prison and not to well at school etc the best place for children in care to be is with loving families and that's why this whole thing is obscene. now for more stories making headlines around the world for you this hour. around ten thousand people have clashed with police in thailand during anti-government protests officers used tear gas to disperse the crowd as they tried to break through barricades the demonstrators accuse the prime minister of corruption and holding an anti monitoring the stance

gazprom says the company would support the creation of a brand new football league such an arrangement would see former soviet republics compete alongside russian clubs this comes hot on the heels of the russian football association punishing a team owned by god's promise for fan violence going off take a look at whether the grandiose plans are likely to become reality. sunidhi is currently the champion of russia and recently found itself in the center of a scandal when during a match with the team one of the meets fans threw a flare right on the field seriously injuring the. burning his eyes with the match was stopped and his unit was punished with a technical defeat later were heard from the team's management who protested the penalty saying that me stop taking part in a russian football championship all together analysing it is sponsored by gas prom and the energy giants see miller has met with the team's management and he's now saying that if you need me start taking part in
5:23 pm
a whole new other tournament between states which currently doesn't exist but miller says that if somebody started working on the idea then gas plant would definitely support it now gazprom is known to be quite a supporter of sports its deputy c.e.o. alexander may be the is the chief ideologist of the kontinental hockey league which is currently the second largest in the wall you know it's probably the strongest hockey teams in the whole course area so the energy giant definitely has the financial resources to help create a new football tournament as well say between the former soviet republics but again this is all now being talked about not actually being worked on and it's also a question how successful such a project would be how interesting it would be to watch and how competitive would be compared to other football leagues in the world. and you're watching r t coming up after a short break we have
