al-qaeda the guy that prime minister tony blair and president bush said that saddam hussein had toews to or is it the al qaeda that weren't that dangerous or die hard al qaeda or or dangerous islamised so we don't really know who these people are but from what i see and from what i know from what i read and from what i learn these are just disparate gangs of murderers and criminals it's a moral issue out a military issue and that's the only way it's going to be solved. as the syrian conflict rages the country is busy dismantling its chemical also in accordance with international agreements a third batch of toxic material has been shipped out for decommissioning so you were recently missed several deadlines to hand over its chemicals saying rebel
activity will still blame but damascus maintains it will meet the un backed road map and fully designed mixed toxic arsenal by. this is unchanged or national and coming up later this hour it's might just be the right time for some house hunting. great. british town puts homes up for sale for just one pound look at what's proven the local council to let them go for next to nothing. it's a busy day for waves sultry with eight sets of medals up for grabs kind of days on top of the medal table at the moment and there's been no podium successful the hardest so far today however that doesn't mean there's nothing to cheer for the home crowd she's in isa now reports now from our century headquarters. the competition is gathering pace and every day brings new reasons for celebration here
in sochi but the russian's women's curling team has moved a step closer to medal success beating their american rivals let's get the details from our andrew farmer well there has been more success for the russian women's curling team they've beaten the americans nine seven to record their second win in a row and a bit later on will turn out again to face the chinese and also a bit later on we'll get another glimpse of the figure skating stars maksim and tatiana. they've already won team gold and are favorites for the pairs event which does get underway this evening it's also worth noting that they are world and european champions despite only being together for three years and despite. famous bad temper so what is the secret of their success over such a short space of time or maybe just maybe it could be written in the stars i was familiar with some of what seems to treat. my zodiac sign is gemini and lexeme is
a libra so we get along just fine. when we first started skating together i told her to know that more than half of what people say about my personality is probably true as she told me she could get along with pretty much anyone. whatever people say my or someone else's personality figure skating is a sport and what matters is the result doesn't matter what my personality is like some would say about a coach for example he's insufferable the most important thing is my training and my performance and the medals i win which who cares if i'm a difficult person well also today look out for the names of nikita crew caught in the men's cross-country skiing and also. in the biathlon on the first medal of today again when the canadians it went in star skiing and that really does cement their place at the top of the medal table and not long ago actually the fall. full sisters from canada displaying the gold and silver medals they won in the moguls at
the weekend we caught up with that of the system he told us where he's made a comparison between the vancouver games four years ago and the sochi games now because i am kitty and it was own soil in vancouver there's there's an intensity level difference where in russia so the russians are at home and whatever russian risking on the course the crowd would go and say it wasn't as intense for canadians or other athletes but in some ways i think it was kind of a relief kind of feel like oh i'm here to is very exciting the night of the event the crowd is there there is some fear so definitely olympic by going on i saw key is also expected to steal the show at the sochi olympics and it's promising to be one of the most exciting torn in years we caught up with russian hockey legend legend. who is a two time olympic gold medalist to find out what his hopes are for the russian team. just going for gold for the ocean
and all kinds of qualities to do so. before. good coaching style for group experience. competitions. really will support their fans. can give lots of pressure. to be in. the know how to handle the pressure going out to be under pressure. and expect the gold medal from just. this russian team the winter olympics in sochi have been making headlines around the globe but not necessarily about the competition many news outlets have set the alarms ringing over the alleged. terror threat that's despite russia's unprecedented security operation let's also not forget the never ending tales about
the saudi hotels and bad organization while very few missed the opportunity to deliver horror stories about the rounding up of the stray dogs while lead singer putin has dismissed such coverage as an echo of the cold war code in the whole during the cold war era there was the so-called containment policy that's what it was called it was the policy and practice of containing the soviet union's development of unfortunately as we see now occasionally there are through backs to these policies every so often so when russia demonstrates a positive development it's clear that the period so you harmful players and competitors in genders somewhat fear them in areas such as the economy politics and security attempts to contain russia emerge here or there including with this olympic project the man snowboarding half pipe final is one of the most anticipated medal events of the day crews are racing to smooth the course after complaints by
some athletes the slopes of sochi make currently be the olympic battleground right now but they promise to become a popular tourist destination after the games we send our teams martin andrews to sochi mountain cluster to test what goes up must come down there's no better way to see the beautiful caucasus mountains zooming down the slopes taking the breathtaking scenery and marvel in the vast resorts and facilities they now have here as you know the famous phrase when in rome so it's on with the boots and off to the slopes at krasnaya polyana a totally transformed area of this month's liberty opening this is just beautiful it's been fun we came up skiing the other day a couple days off between work and sochi and adler and corky all came together nicely when we got here is a little and then end up in a couple days a hammer it out it's really cool since no boardings inception. as an established winter sport it's developed various styles each with its own specialized equipment
and technique snowboarding only became a winter sport in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight ranging from the stunts of freestyle to the fast pace racing of slope style used for both recreation and professional snowboarding it's my first time and it's not as easy as it looks but it's a little bit confusing as i've been told that i'm left footed even though i'm right handed i said in the same three position was pushed forward and the first foot that i fell on was the direction i should go wish me luck. there are around one hundred thousand risk of fractures worldwide among snowboarders each year i'm not going to be a statistic to me and my instructor says he can teach someone to be a recreational snowboarder in one or two days with the ability to use all lifts perform controlled link turns control speed and direction and stop confidently something i'm having trouble with the slopes are busy now with locals and visitors
from all over the world but what's the future of the region after the olympics i think it's best to reserve the rush for a prosecutor through the summer times because all of only because objects. connected in the one large resort people of all ages come here to the slopes fifty kilometers from the black sea coast the perfect way to exercise and to stay youthful. slopes and solitary and great i'm enjoying them but i'm trying not to go too fast so i don't get knocked down it's risky at my age but she's not known for its alpine skiing or snowboarding and might not be very good at it but it's an activity that's on the rise and as the professional snowboarders with their various olympic medals on this very mountain it seems that some of us were not born for such winter hype to tease not to danbury's r.t. . will keep you up to date on everything happening at the sochi winter games
