yesterday also in the forty's this was alexander ovechkin he scored for russia yesterday in their fight to win against would be in their first game this competition and also you might be surprised at the russian women's curling team. they really have struck a chord with the russian nation and their beauty has made many people fall in love with this school but also i really enjoy talking to people yesterday and to me they proved that romance and good humor is alive and well here with these if we want to know who is the sexiest athlete these olympics. gold. russian federation of cookie. joyce just right or joe what's his name sean weiss retainer yes me american it lets us know border yes i think his very good looking he was the most attractive athlete at these olympics.

a mexican citizen with german voile ancestry he says all the negativity that foreign journalists have been pouring on salty could have been cancelled out by some good p.r. think it's great it's a great game i think that russia the only problem that they have to stay should have hired a p.r. person like me to be better p.r. before i mean you know it's a great place they will want the full venue not the full everything is really poor and we should have just got the positive of my over to europe and to america that we're so negative so it's a bit sad that. they maybe in russia you don't do so much p.r. work which is what it's very very important because the word of mouth and the presentation is very important it was too negative and it doesn't deserve this negativity more olympic action coming up for you next hour plus don't miss the live reports while burial in studio and saatchi later today.

sort of compromise but the most sensational statement came from the country's information minister so i mean that our job i think the bahraini opposition is the main ally of the us the terrorist members of the opposition and their leader have close ties to foreign embassies in bahrain wiki leaks of the many documents proving it i talk to the americans and clearly ask them to speak to their friends in the opposition who should understand that bahrain cannot be ruled by an ethnic sectarian parnia bahrain's opposition say the allegations are laughable if that was true they say then why is there no action from the western states the u.s. navy's fifth fleet stationed in bahrain and washington's close ties with saudi arabia may be among the reasons what is happening through. of human rights abuses is. happening in russia the whole was all come up with the whole media. because everything in that region. close to

it's up to date it's going to go to treating people if you were in prison it's not just the women women and men and children everyone who. we go through the torture process that is nearly systematic everyone everyone will be everyone will be sexually harassed if you and we. blindfolded signed confessions we don't go in with what is inside we don't have any access to don't know you or anyone outside that's the situation it is really very bad for anyone to be detained and different like no since two thousand and eleven i know for nothing just for speaking up understanding for the rights of the people. party has been closely following the answer government writing over the past three years on air and online log on to our to dot com to get the full picture of what is going on there and of course how it all started. a second zoo and then mark says it will
have to put down a healthy giraffe to comply with the european breeding laws the management says that euthanasia is the most likely scenario it's the second such case in the space of a few days and it has drawn widespread condemnation as artie's lucic half an hour now explains well animal lovers around the globe are outraged by a danish zoo's announcement that it may put down another giraffe this comes just days after the copenhagen zoo's decision to euthanize eighteen month old maurice thousands of people had signed a petition to keep him alive although he wasn't sick the copenhagen zoo said that it needed to put mario's down to prevent inbreeding well now another dinner zoo this one in julian's park is tentatively making plans to euthanize a seven year old giraffe which by coincidence is also named now a lot of people quite upset by this news went viral on the internet but the developments do highlight the seldom seen practice of just how zoos get rid of
animals that they'd. i don't want or need the copenhagen zoo insisted that it was doing the right thing when it killed the giraffe dissecting him in front of children and then feeding them to lions as for why well they say it's all part of an effort to control inbreeding and to educate visitors according to the european association of zoos and aquaria mario's had genes that were too similar to other giraffes in their breeding programs and breeding in fact is also the reason why the second zoo may euthanize the still alive mario's please do bear with me here. already has to bail giraffes there is a female that may be ready for mating and zookeepers say that basically the two males well they could fight each other to the death over that female and that's why one has to go of course that argument wasn't a good enough explanation for rights groups the animal welfare and conservation organization born free said and i quote the slaughtering healthy zoo animals for convenience is irresponsible and in defensible they want european politicians to
address the issue pointing out that the practice isn't limited to denmark whether or not dylan's park follows goes ahead with its controversial plans to kill the giraffe of course remains to be seens will have to wait and see whether the zoo will succumb to public pressure for now the fate of at least one giraffe hangs in the balance reporting in berlin germany. offers to accommodate mario coming in from russia the leader of the chechen republic instagram's who condemned the killing of the for his giraffe and to tell users he's ready to take in the second also a well known russian animal trainer and go to the posh me he said it's a foot the cost of finding a new home for marise and the russians. now more news coming your way after the break including reports of a birth or suicide bomber in syria counterterrorist forces in the u.k. investigates why a man left his family behind to join extremists in the war zone. and calls

immigration reduced and also the vast majority of britons hold a similar view in norway a record number of illegal migrants were deported last year and as are it's easy going to school off reports the situation is putting pressure on the governments. this used to be a quiet suburban town in the outskirts of oslo where money is spent fourteen years of his life until he says along with most of his norwegian friends they had to move out because of constant attacks by teenage immigrant against. the ambulance five times or something so it came to the point where i didn't have the time to be robbed all the time and go to the hospital today three out of four students at the local school are a foreign descent mass energy exports brought more we some of the highest living standards in europe and made it very attractive for immigrants over the last thirty years their population has grown tenfold but high living standards mean high cost which not all newcomers are contributing towards many immigrants welcome in africa

artie's polly boyko is following the story. facts are sometimes stranger than fiction this is the street where abdul wahid the first suspected british suicide bomber in syria is alleged to have lived it schooled martyrs avenue the forty one year old man that lived here is suspected of carrying out a suicide bombing in a truck in the city of aleppo last week after joining the al qaida linked to al nusra front the father of three is said to have put his day job six months ago and joined a convoy running aid into syria he was reportedly in contact with his wife and children up until last week if his identity is confirmed it will be the first known attack by a briton in syria according to the center for the study of radicalization in king's college in london hundreds of u.k. citizens have traveled to syria to fight with jihadi groups recent posts on social
media suggest that some of the brits fighting back have been involved in b.c. and execution of fellow rebels while residents of ma says adding you come to terms with a reported neighbor suicide attack security services in the u.k. of becoming increasingly concerned about the potential threats fighting in syria could return and stage attacks on u.k. soil. west sussex well britain is not the only european nation whose citizens have been joined in the civil war in syria now a recent study suggests that hundreds of citizens from germany belgium and france and several other states have left their homes to for its alongside the jihad this and some estimates put the figure much higher in fact in the thousands and this of course poses a major security concerns for europe as several of these volunteers have said they plan to enjoy a holy war in the west after a better return now
a group of british nationals fighting in syria has even turned to social media to support extra its. message across their release propaganda posters threatening terrorist attacks in britain and the us targets in public transport and business centers the captions on these images urged people to join the holy war and become martyrs for the cause political analyst mohammed and sar believes that these foreign fighters pose a threat not only to europe but also to the people of syria one of the most worrying aspects we've seen of late is that people who are out in syria fighters from britain have been calling others to come and join them whether they are british muslim women to support them a factory or sort of themselves out and so in themselves after being effectively warlords who are out there who are gun toting are really no benefit and no blessing to the people out there and are going to become increasingly radicalized and often go out there with
a martyrdom mentality i think really understanding the nuance to be around the nature of these people who are going out to fight in syria is going to be crucial to understanding the level of radicalization and how these young people feel the u.n. security council is such a vote on a new draft resolution on syria however russia has made it clear that it will use its veto to block the west from bag documents which proposes a fifteen day also made some for the syrian government and file an across the country and russia's foreign minister says the west's one sided approach to the conflict is holding back enter national peace efforts. we get the impression that when those who brought the opposition into the talks everyone to focus in fulfilling the geneva communiqué what they were really after was regime change the only thing that the syrian opposition want to talk about is establishing a transitional government only after that will they be willing to discuss the
problem of terrorism as things stand most of those fighting against the government stream ist and terrorist groups. in other news around the world that circus police have used tear gas and water cannons against protesters in the capital ankara they were advancing their anger over a new answer that controls the government claims the legislation will protect individual rights but many see it as a clampdown on freedom of speech demonstrators were also demanding the release of army officers and jailed last year for allegedly trying to stage a coup. over cells in indonesia have ordered the evacuation of over sixty thousand people and raise the eruption alert to its highest level after a volcano on java started sending plumes of smoke into the air three airports have been closed with asking over and planes on the ground the military has been called in to help and get people away from the area or thorazine is our urgently port to
