lead midway through the second period a great moment for him he of course plays his hole in the n.h.l. but goals from. and then. put the usa to one up before it was on hand again to level matches at two two with five minutes to go russia thought they'd done enough to win the match but what would have been the winning goal was cancelled out in the final few moments because the net had come away from its moorings it was a controversial moment with even the u.s. coach admitting afterwards that he was surprised that the goal didn't stand now it was a physical robust but only contest between two fierce rivals the game eventually went into overtime but still nothing separated the two sides and eventually the usa prevailed in a long rocking ten round shootout and these u.s. hockey stars. have been expecting a tough challenge as crazy as the back and forth game it seemed they paid score we score and we score they scored. so it was it was a good game as

a russian pilot jailed in the u.s. is given urgent medical treatment constantini health is critical but he has been refused access to a doctor. reports. first he received twenty years in prison in the united states for a crime he never committed on the american soil now it has gone from bad to worse for russian violent constantin you know. he called me in the morning and told me he felt very sick and that he'd be lucky to survive until monday he seems to be having heart attack because he told me he was suffocating experience and heart pain and was almost unable to walk and he felt sick they put him in lock up and left him on the cold floor while he was off or it was flu medication and some antibiotics you know showed his lawyer told r.t. that the head doctor at the new jersey prison where he's being held will not expedite his treatment monday is. also a federal holiday in the united states so my supposition would be that any kind of
medical treatment so constant in your i shan't go could be provided only on tuesday the u.s. center was arrested in twenty town in liberia on suspicion of drug smuggling he was reportedly severely beaten before being transported to the u.s. where he received a twenty year prison sentence this is something we are seeing repeated over and over again kind of arrogant attitude that washington has toward other countries and particularly to other countries who are now. doing what washington was to dictate to them to do the presence system of the united states has no terror notoriously. disregarding of the rights of prisoners even the most fundamental rights including the return to the mosco has been insisting all along that the way you know shank this case has been handled regardless of whether he committed the crime or not is a gross violation of human rights probably very beginning so if you are a shrinker it has been absolutely politicized we have expressed many famous over
the seriousness of having failed to get through to washington via official channels the russian foreign ministry resorted to social media and posted at. for help on its facebook page ever since you know it was delivered to the u.s. russian officials have been denied access with the situation now taking a dramatic turn the russian foreign ministry officials are once again demanding to be allowed to see him along with their own doctor that is of course if you know shanker himself lives to receive that help. now still to come in the program swiss voters back conversely and to immigration rules. control of the. boulders. and we'll be reporting on the shock waves and sending across the e.u. in the build up to the european parliamentary elections. deadly violence and

has deeply angered assad's enemies do you think we're going to see more explosions like this while today i dare say. anything i can do for sonny brothers anything i can do for syrian brothers i will do anything i can do for these people suffering from injustice i will do. anything he unkind to affiliated to a new survey front claimed responsibility for these recent deadly bombings just days before a man calling himself and al qaida commander announced via you tube that the group had put down groups in lebanon or people we've met her on the ground deny belonging to either of these groups but don't hide the fact that they share their views. no there is no al qaeda as an organization anymore but al qaeda as an idiology and it doesn't need money to spread it spreads by itself everywhere in the world not
only in lebanon but in america britain serbia. here radical ideas of bread from a young age fighters here colette card as. bin laden a teacher and their fight jihad. when twenty three year old med returned from syria where he joined the free syrian army he continued his jihad here in lebanon. targeted a district where she'll leave tripoli is divided into sunni and shia parts ironically by the street called syria two years ago a field on that street district in the city of tripoli separates alawite and sunni neighborhoods in this part of north running like a murderer between those who support the syrian president and his regime and those who want him out today who can't get. caches sometimes oh. who do you fight against who is your enemy i'm addicted and i fight against them
for those those who don't carry that for i go far eleven is probably the war spillover of the syrian conflict and while the world is hoping for peace to come back to that middle east country war seems to only spread for their own. people here seem to be used to seeing fighters carry sniper rifles through busy markets they tell us everybody here has a weapon and is ready to fight. these can go outside you will see every day to raise a little get her stroller said it doesn't take well you know for someone with zero experience become a real fighter. a week's training and you are in for a life time of obedience routes for those who want to become one giant being you have to forget about money and be ready to die or to be arrested and to accept that no one will take care of you or your family let jihadi flags on the walls weapons

and the opposition refusing to set aside their calls for asad to step down jonathan steele a columnist for britain's guardian newspaper says one of the key obstacles to peace is a foreign aid being provided to syria's rebels but it's hard for sides to admit it to spend all this money in treasure and lost lives for not getting victory and so you still cling to that hope the guessing and it's a tough time i think with the u.n. pressure from a photography me and it's the regional countries. convincing the government and the opposition that they must make a deal and it doesn't that would help could it also means cutting back on home supplies and all these jihadi fighters going in and stopping it being a proxy war and reverting to being what it should be just an internal problem among civilians and u.k. authorities are alarmed over the number of britons taking up arms to fight alongside the rebels in syria british nationals are among the hundreds of e.u. citizens who have joined the jihad ists boyko has a story of
