a top u.n. investigator in says there are strong suspicions the rebels in syria have used chemical weapons but says there is nothing to suggest the government forces have done the same. meanwhile it grows condemned for a series of as tribes inside syria but takes a look at whether the ultimate target of death tax could lie elsewhere. also thousands are gathering in moscow to mark a guess since an antigovernment protests turned violent and you're seeing live pictures right now from central moscow. last record unemployment painful austerity and the lowest ratings in britain french history france all alone marks the end of a tough first year as president. this
results seen coming to live from moscow hello and welcome to the program. first and leading you on investigators says there are strong suspicions rebels in syria have used the deadly nerve gas so reinjuring this civil war but call a del ponte a also insists she has no evidence the government has resorted to the use of chemical weapons there those claims are in contrast to an earnest statement by the u.s. has accused president assad's forces of using them and threatens to take action. reports now from washington. you want human rights investigators say based on the evidence that they have the rebels in syria have used the nerve agent sorry this is a major development which comes at a time when the assad government is being accused of having used chemical weapons
and so this investigation which says that in all likelihood the rebels have used chemical weapons challenges the narrative which is dominating in the media here and that if chemical weapons were used they were used by the assad government there has been an intense build up of tension around the issue as president obama said the use of chemical weapons by the assad government would be a game changer although he did specify that the u.s. had no hard evidence to accuse the assad government of doing that now this geneva based u.n. investigation is believed to be separate from the investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in syria in the middle of march assad forces and the rebels blame each other for that damascus has requested a u.n. mission to investigate the incident but the investigation is being stalled because in addition to investigating that specific incident the u.n. chief now the men's access to all facilities in syria and there are concerns that this inquiry wants the u.n.
into the center of a possible hunt for weapons of mass destruction where it faces the ghost of iraq the fear again is that politics may get ahead of facts. every good tennis safe from the french center for intelligence studies told us see when rebels may have received chemical weapons from abroad. while it's very difficult to say probably be stolen them in in some syrian stock but they could also are being. received to the gateway center in from the foreign countries because we dumb ass and bashar they don't have any interest to use chemical weapons because they control more than the person off the territory they are in position or they are going to war again to rebuild so they've doubled after use chemical weapons because it would be absurd to come to a predicted so every time we receive something from nation saying that the bashar regime is using chemical weapons we are very very cautious because we don't believe
that going out of information. after launching air strikes inside syria over the weekend is bolstering missile defense on its northern border it wants to protect itself after launching to the toxin syrian targets within forty eight hours see where has reportedly pointed its rockets at israel and threatens to strike by immediately if there are more raids pulis liaise following the escalation in the region the syrians are stressing that all options are on the table although they haven't specified exactly what they mean when they say that assad has also said that he would and now palestinian organizations operating in his country to wage war and to wage attacks against israel from the golan heights which is of course the mountains that border israel and syria what this means in effect is that the syrian army will not stop any palestinian from embarking on any kind of military action against israel that emanate from within the syrian territory is whole does
seem to have shot itself in the foot to have its borders now open for palestinians who essentially israel has strained relations with is hugely problematic for this country and what we see now is that israel's actions have made its northern borders are vulnerable for attacks or infiltration from palestinian groups what many are saying is that the israeli strike could essentially or is essentially backfiring on them it also is that it was targeting a military convoy that was making its way from iran to hezbollah in lebanon through syria but what syria says is that one of the targets was a research center as well as a very specific military targets such as soldier barracks and compounds. both the u.n. and arab league have condemned the israeli action but there are concerns that tanks could be aimed at a nothing major nation in the region and an old israeli photo as well she's made in a culture explains there is a third player here fellow shia ally to assad and has
a bill on the big boy on the block and israel's arch enemy iran now reports suggest that it was in the rain in shipment to has volokh that israel was targeting so it's possible that syria is just the middle man and it wouldn't be be young reason that around is equipping has a block as a backup in case of conflict with israel israel with this provocation there will be for a response either from syria even from his bloc better yet from the point of view or the obama to be in israel from iran so if you run in syria don't do anything for the moment just wait this will be seen as it is just a provocation but if there is you know the slightest bit of a response from either syria or your own that's the perfect brick text for a lot of really shocking or against syria iran is seen as the main thread by israel's government which is very nervous about its nuclear activities and in response to these airstrikes iran has already called on the whole region to stand
against israel iran labeled the airstrike as an act of aggression accusing israel of advancing its own interests by creating instability in the region with an unprovoked attack and the commander of the country's ground forces warn that iran is ready to provide logistic support and military training to help syria defend itself against israel so townshend's ass collate and the motives are for onlookers to guess at is launching missiles into syria actually part of israel's plan to contain iran. still ahead for you this hour on r c three election violence rips through pockets strong with fourteen killed in the latest we've got an update from islamabad later in the program and also. the mystery behind a plane that disappeared over the russian urals a year ago with thirteen aboard is finally solved that and much more later in the

of the oil we bought from cerro de because he. was a straight that needs to be open at all time to ensure that the flow of oil is not destructed because we have a camp base here in bahrain which the americans rely on as a sport to watch over the region all of that have taken its toll on the people on the ground yet that have taken its toll on the children that are being asked to do from there is this close on the women that are that are being tortured in prison all of that captures because of its context different interest human rights. next to the political wrong than bahrain we don't really have any other choice but to force this damage has been done and my cousins are again my friends are in danger and so for me it's the only if you kill king told me to do is to help them as gay
help me help me before. thousands of opposition oxidase have gathered in central moscow to mark one years since mosque prize has that ended in violent clashes and you're seeing live pictures from the heart of the capital right now last year's anti-government rallies that left dozens injured and so four hundred arrested and right now we can go live to. his joining us now live if you can hear us. yes said just how big is today's rally and wolf the demonstrators message that . well we can't say for sure how many people are exactly here but we can say that thousands have come here despite that monday is a working day in russia string of holidays and still thousands here all peaceful and quiet so far heavy police presence of course keeping in mind what happened last year when the protests turned violent and literally i had to walk for several kilometers to get to the place where i'm standing right now several cordons of the
police so everything is peaceful so far although there was a chance that this rally wouldn't happen at all because before it actually started when the organizers was setting up a stage here at the disco and central moscow one of the workers one of the volunteers who was installing the stage died tragically in an accident it's still unclear why exactly that happened but still there was a chance that the rally would be council now it starts as we speak the first speakers on the stage the stage is by itself it's something like a truck which was eventually supplied by the government of mosco because the initial stage was not complete the because of the death of the worker the message of the broadcast this is the basically simple they are marking one year since last year's broadcast on may the sixth twelfth when the protests turned violent several hundred people were injured on both sides on the opposition and on the police from the police as well so right now these people here are demanding that those who are now in detention those who are on trial for instigating those. riots
a year ago these people want them to be released we understand at the rally would last for another two and a half hours certainly will be here want to bring the situation and see if anything like a last year could happen again but as i said the police presence is very heavy here so it's looks unlikely that it might search on violence after all. right of course in excess of skill be looking forward to hearing more from you thank you for that update thank you from central moscow and i will be back with more news after a quick break to stay with us.

victory of socialist president francois hollande but here on the thousands of people are again gathered but for a very different reason this time they're asking the president where are the changes that he had promised asked by the very same people who voted left and put along didn't place recent poll shows popularity has plummeted to less than twenty five percent the biggest force for any french president in the past fifty years. i let you know where your promises are come on where are they if they're not just sure it is not me and i've yet this is the mission that from now on will be mine to give the european construction a dimension of growth employment and prosperity you have france's hit record unemployment of three point two million people in march the biggest source of public anger it's also scratched hopes of cutting the budget deficit to three percent of g.d.p. by two thousand and thirteen and the european commission's most recent forecast

into the economy whatever you want anyway i just would like to hear your president which is not making that much promise which is keeping some heat on which is not going to explain that you know their magic pretty beat up no one has before. yeah yeah yeah. a magic recipe this filmi. says is nonexistent he made this video during last year's presidential campaign to show the country's lack of choice. to feel when you listen to the media you think there were a lot of differences between the two that's just on a superficial level the most important things they agree with do we need to intervene in another country to fight they will agree to intervening in other countries because the weapons lobby will always be behind. a lot is well aware of his unpopularity but says he will weather this storm improve he can't keep his
promises at the end of this five year term don't want all that he needs time fine we are here to tell him mr president time is up you know need to start changing but others like these workers from a recently closed steel plant of eastern france are not even hopeful symbolically laid to rest a lot of broken promises under were heading which reads the trail. does are still the r r t paris six people have been injured in a drive by shooting in california the broad daylight at a bus stop in palo alto came on the same afternoon as a major gun lobby get together in texas the national rifle association's annual convention saw the group's new hardline chief vowing to resist president obama's push for tighter firearm controls he's wearing a partner i asked after. the national debate over gun control may be among the most
divisive issues in the united states but it's also proving to be a p.r. success for america's largest and strongest gun rights organization approximately seventy thousand people turned out for the national rifle association's annual meeting taking place here in houston texas those in attendance are not allowed to fly any of the weapons or ammunition but they certainly are allowed to pick up the guns hold them in their hands aim them and get a good feel of what these weapons are all about for the kids there are air guns that the kids are allowed to shoot also virtual gardens to play with the recent weeks u.s. president obama's out for furthering dawn control legislation failed in the senate that effort of course was for strengthening the background checks when you hear from the people that turned out they say that they will stand behind the n.r.a.
to continue to fight any efforts washington makes on furthering gun control legislation make it shows a feel. free to second amendment and most in this show are supporting the n.r.a. because they are a backbone for believing in fighting for our rights former vice presidential candidate sarah palin and texas governor rick perry are among the long list of names of pro-gun conservatives that addressed crowds throughout this three day event all those that spoke accuse president obama of leading a vicious attack against the second amendment now the n.r.a. is c.e.o. wayne la pierre referenced last month's boston terrorist attacks asking the audience how many bostonians wish they had a gun two weeks ago as an unprecedented manhunt for the bombing suspects was underway now ironically as the u.s. leader has been making his efforts to strengthen gun. laws gun sales have been
agree increasing membership to the n.r.a. has been expanding so while the issue of guns remains very divisive to work the nation so far in this ongoing political battle the n.r.a. is clearly moving itself to be strong enough to go up against and defeat the president of the united states reporting from houston with r.t. . and now a quick look at some other international news in brief in up to twenty eight people killed and dozens injured in the riots involving islamic calling for an anti blasphemy law will be introduced security forces used rubber bullets to break up the gathering as tens of thousands of demonstrators flooded the streets of the company isn't as groups are fiercely resisting a secularist movement that's been gaining ground in bangladesh since the start of this year. the high profile trial of a new nasa terror group has opened
a new nick the last surviving member of the national socialist underground b.r. to shuffle he's facing life in prison for murder she and for coke conspirators are accused of killing eight citizens of turkish origin along with a greek man and a german policewoman between two thousand and two thousand and seven but he's have set up security cordons anticipating possible far right protests. in libya and morgues have gathered outside state ministries in the capital tripoli demanding the government's resignation this comes after a new law was introduced barring people who worked on the colonel gadhafi from serving in the leadership a number of politicians including the prime minister alike have to move their jobs as a result of this comes after a heavily armed militants laid siege to the foreign and justice ministry last week demanding the bill be cost. the wreckage of a plane the wreckage of a plane that crashed in the euros killing also on board. has been found nearly a year after it went missing thousands of square kilometers have been searched
without success but it turned out this search teams didn't need to look so far afield it was in a swarm just a few kilometers from the airport with more now here's andrew farmer it was a disaster that looked like it would never be solved this was the devastating scene three men stumbled across this week in the russian urals the remains of a plane that had gone missing nearly a year ago with the loss of thirteen lives normally the biplane was used to put out wildfires but on the night of june eleventh last year it's believed the pilot took it for a fatal joyride with twelve friends and relatives. speed was one of three people who made the discovery and he is with us now this plane was missing for over a year how did you find. your thoughts talk we were approached on behalf of a group of hunters who saw a strange metallic structure out in the bogs not far from the city of syria of
although they suspected it to be the plane they we're not sure that the. the location was only four kilometers away from the nearest road but the journey was very difficult and it's no easy task trekking through the tiger when we got there it was obvious that the metallic object was indeed what was left of the plane and can you describe the scene of the crash was the plane badly damaged where the bodies. of the somalia of the plane itself went down at a very sharp angle and became half submerged in the bog the shock of the impact stripped the plane's body of sheeting leaving behind only a skeletal airframe packed with human boners not one skeleton was intact and we counted eleven skulls in various conditions some with evident burn marks of those with multiple puncture wounds and why do you think the authorities were unable to find this airplane after all it crashed only eight kilometers from the airfield.
the of course thought for most of the year the taiga in this area is simply impossible the plane crashed in the middle of a bog and with ice still present there it allowed us to fairly well to get to the wreckage in the winter the snow is too deep and in the summer the entire area becomes a bog that when the rescue was conducted in the summer rescue is simply couldn't reach the area and we saw the pass that they had left behind as it turned out they had passed only about fifty meters from an area where the wreck could be seen well a criminal investigation has been reopened into the case and will try to get to the bottom of what happened what after all was the pilot's incentive to steal a plane with friends which included a local police chief security guard and the airport's nightwatchman officials have claimed they may have been drinking and may have wanted to fly to a remote in the region and then there are days he thinks something more sinister could have happened the whole episode is reminiscent of the infamous t.f. last pass the plane crash in the same region in nine hundred fifty nine then nine
people perished in the. stances on their mutilated bodies were found at the scene with a selfie to investigation concluding they had died from a compelling unknown force or despite the wreckage of this latest crash being found there are still an awful lot of questions to be oncet. coming out right now for the latest edition of our debate cross talk with peter about. it yet another step along the pointless anti gender crusade activists in sweden are pushing to promote a new gender neutral pronoun these activists want the term hen to replace the pronouns han and han which mean he and she respectively i think the logic of these
bizarre gender neutral movements in the e.u. is that they really feel that it's awful to force someone into a role that doesn't fit them you know i can kind of see this i remember back to when i was a boy in school and with me there was a kid what kind of only female friends and he certainly wasn't the sport's a toy trucks kind of kid if you understand what i mean you know i could see this guy having all those male stereotypes shoved down his throat you know it made his life at school really unpleasant but the wacko e.u. liberal answer to some tiny amount of people being pushed into gender roles they don't like is to force everyone else into a genderless world they don't like fantastic i guess gender neutrality advocates can speak swedish how they like and they're free to use this word hen but don't force everyone in the country to do things your way the overwhelming majority of the world is very happy with its gender thank you very much but that's just my opinion.
