welcome back you're watching live from moscow and linty france thirty greenpeace activists are accused of piracy after trying to board a russian oil platform in protest against drilling in the arctic russian and foreign activists are among those being investigated for more on this now we're joined by our alexey. alexy tell us what exactly are they accused of and how serious are these charges anyway or the charges are definitely very serious according to investigators or the russian authorities these activists violated the article of the russian criminal code of laws on piracy organized by by
5:14 am
a group and the maximum punishment for the for these crimes is up to fifteen years in prison and up to five hundred million rubles of fine now the incident in question reportedly happened a week ago when an arctic sunrise ship registered to the greenpeace organization reached the russian. oil rig in the northern by sea and tried to infiltrate the oil rig now according to the investigators this ship had some peculiar quick went on board which had been identified means and this leads the investigators to believe that the group was trying to do to do something illegal to be involved in some piracy activities not protesting against the drilling in the northern sea as it has been pulled by the greenpeace organization so currently the investigation is continuing on the causes of on the what exactly happened and why this ship tried to board the russian oil rig but the investigating investigative committee of the
5:15 am
russian prosecutor general's office says that all the people involved all the people charged with this if they're found guilty they will be facing a prison sentence regardless of their nationality and the reports are there that there are thirty activists six of them are believed to be u.k. citizens. so what has greenpeace reacted with after being accused of piracy well the organization itself the greenpeace organization is staunchly denying any accusation saying that they were simply involved in peaceful protest against drilling in the arctic sea world definitely we have to wait and see what the investigators say on that because. there are accusations at the moment there are charges that these people were involved in piracy activities and right now we know that the arctic sunrise ship has been told to the. gulf and in the northern sea and that's where these people will wait until investigation is over we know that they were locked inside the ship they're not allowed to be let out to the
5:16 am
mainland and they will wait until the investigation is over or arties alexy jarosz esky thank you for that. as air pollution levels in the british capital reach a high londoners are encouraged to leave their cars at home and shift from four wheels to two parties polly boyko takes up the story. well our blog the great london small give nine hundred fifty two written by law back in the dozens of square miles blanketed day off today reading this result was an unhappy drunk can be held in iraq today it appears much cleaner but the reality is that london's air is so dessie it's been breaching the legal limits set out by the e.u. for years. thirty thousand deaths are attributed to pollution and people look at the air today and it's clean but unfortunately it's still very dangerous. air pollution today is completely invisible but the reason for this is
5:17 am
it's very small microscopic particles and that's also the reason that they're so damaging to your health because they can travel deep inside of this system and it's london is controversial that's largely responsible for it cars and lorries emit an invisible gas called my trojan dioxide known as the silent killer its effects on noticeable it can cause or spiritual disease reduce lung function and according to the world health organization even trigger lung cancer the biggest single source of notching dockside this toxic gas in london are actually these red buses going we're also very concerned about diesel vehicles diesel vehicles are responsible probably for about ninety percent of the most of the exhaust emissions clientèle earth an environmental campaign group is suing the u.k. government for what they call failing to protect brits from add pollution and failing to come up with plans to drastically reduce nitrogen dioxide levels we're currently breaching limits in forty to forty three zones in the u.k.
5:18 am
and sixteen of these we don't think we're going to reach them until twenty twenty and that's ten years after the deadline in may the supreme court ruled that the government isn't doing enough to reduce pollution and improve public health we got in touch with defra the government department responsible for at quality and they told us equality has. improve significantly in london and we expect it to improve further thanks to the actions the government is taking to reduce transport emissions but campaigners say that charging cars to drive into central london and introducing what the government has tagged as green a buses isn't enough i think they need to take a really hard look at what's necessary to reduce pollution in the u.k. that the choices are extremely difficult and electorally not very popular it basically means taking diesel vehicles off the road in the very foreseeable future you can imagine that's not a vote women have to deal with the city as it is and not some crazy green
5:19 am
gone. wrong. in the movie and maybe drugs are used to produce that is. that is not going to happen since it's not going to happen campaign as a write in london is to each do that bit to make the air in the city clean by shining back cars and paddling around town instead while avoiding the most polluted routes of course but it's not clear how much difference it will make since the government itself admits that london will remain dangerously polluted until at least the year twenty twenty five. london. our web team has more stories lined up for you on our team dot com including unlawful disclosure a former cia employee plead guilty spilling the beans to the press spoiling a top secret mission and putting agents lives rest. plus new york's finest spread the word on apple i phone security time last bent their boss say the fight against

5:21 am
from all political parties that oppose the military coup and this is again a politically motivated charge from the corrupted history anything built on a military coup cannot stand what the egyptians want is their voice to be heard through the ballot box not through tanks not three bullets not through the cold killing of peaceful protesters and what we're seeing now is that a modification of this instability on the ground we've got a very unstable economy at the moment the military junta are insisting on driving the whole country and the entire nation through a very very dark tunnel and we are very worried for the future of democracy and the future of egypt. and now to some other stories making headlines around the globe at least ten people have been killed in mexico two gunmen attacked a home where people were celebrating a baseball victory a six year old girl was among the victims you saw it took place in the border city
