but let's bring in our
team is andrew farmer i'm sure he was watching the mat match and i want to talk a little bit about the third period that goal for russia that put the score up to three two but was then nullified by the international ice hockey federation what do you think was a fair call. well look there are official statements that's come out is said that if the goalposts were moved off their moorings before that part went in then it is not and that's what happened so i can't say there's going to be much room for complaint about that even though many people are disappointed i mean just to add to your comments it was a captivating game many of the reports i've read this morning have said that it is oh it was international hockey at its best it is very unfortunate that russia were on the wrong end of a three two defeat to be united states but look there's no need to be despondent because they are still on course to make the second round they are still second in
their group and today they will play the same vacuums who've lost both of their opening game so russia should win that one i don't think there's any need to be too pessimistic can certainly many of the fans we spoke to were upbeat. almost when i came here with a friend of mine just to see the match we're very disappointed and we hope our team will still show their worth of these games in the. this isn't the last going to russia will deliver yet we just have to believe in the hope and cheer for the. new bulb in the mask no matter what little score random best country we have to have a machine after. come on guys don't let us down next time the whole such a the whole country is cheering for you goal russia by naive. so many of those fans i'm sure will be taking their seats again in the bolshoi i stay in the match against slovakia getting underway at sell for. thirty local time
so often it. certainly will be watching thanks for that and you just stand by there will be returning back to you in a bit of course a roller coaster of emotions for russian fans top officials included kremlin administration chiefs of gavan all have been cheering on the home side and he told me they're still firmly in the running. including cruel costs today wasn't next week is going to close a good game i looked at i'm still emotional because i came to straight after the game. well it was an equal game it was a tough game. it was tied and those penalty shots it's like lottery you're never guess and besides the game didn't mean much from the final standings point to russia still has a very good chance just. where at the
games russia has seen some major breakthrough it's now jumped from seventh to third in the medals count having bagged gold in skeleton and both gold and silver in short track speed skating let's get back now to andrew farmer in the mountain cluster quite a turnaround for us after a slow start of the games. has been hosting it and it could be a few more miles today because we've got the relays and cross-country skiing. but one thing i'd like to talk about is the fact we will see some of the greatest characters these olympics taking part in the bulbs that starts today russia's two man team includes a former world champion in arm wrestling. and he teams out with alexander zuckoff and both of those are tipped to get a medal in this event we will also see that you may contain making an appearance after just over a decade the last time they were in the olympics he did probably the making of that coach film cool runnings but this time around it is the pairing of winston watts
and marvin dixon who are flying the jamaican flag and they are loving every minute . i love watching love the people there they're real love. makes us feel like we're stars but you know stars is something that shines really bright which is a jamaica team be all of the you know across all obstacles that we do for our courtship. not to concentrate on the obstacle that we possible will concentrate on we're here in sochi. also to look forward to today we have the resumption of figure skating. so you even though russians may not win this one it is a russian who's been coaching the favorite she won not have heard of the name of marino but she has been training the favorites of canada and america and they are fully aware how much she is help them achieve success. we've been

team to sochi twenty four take. on our team while moscow is urging washington to ensure that a russian pilot jailed in the u.s. is given an urgent medical treatment constantino his health is critical but he has been refused access to a doctor or did life here chaps kaye 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 pilot 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 when he felt sick they put him in lockers and left him on the cold floor oh he was offered the most 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 constantine your i shan't go could be provided only on tuesday you know i was arrested in twenty ten in liberia on suspicion of drug smuggling he was reportedly severely beaten before being transported to the us 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 for not. doing what washington wants 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 key so if you're a shrink it has been absolutely politicized we have expressed many famous very serious concerns 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 doctors that is of course if you know shanker himself lives to receive that help. still to come in the program swiss support for tighter immigration rules sparks a heated debate in the e.u. . people are coming out from to your to come from your film i know you don't that's your book shows control your articles is all we're reporting on the shop ways it's

a new survey front claimed responsibility for days recent deadly bombings just days before a man calling himself and al qaida commander announced via you tube that the group had to 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 call a card is 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 we filmed on that street first street in the city of tripoli separates the whites 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 we can't get. cash he sometimes oh. who do you fight against who is your enemy. i fight against them for those those who don't carry them for 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 further on. 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. it will come to this camp outside you will see every day to raise a little first told us that it doesn't take well you know someone who is here experiencing become a real fighter. a week's training and you are in for a life time of obedience the growth of real rulers for those who want to become one i deem 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 lek jihadi flags on the walls weapons on the floor this is the life of a true fighter. it's tough and the rules are strict as who introduced himself as a tripoli sunni leader says many youths are willing to join the blood in the more from now until i grow up i'm ready to defend myself i'm ready to kill
a whites and syrian army at your age and kill for that other than about about me about the world we hear and while the syrian conflict expands a legion of fighters on to these deadly weapons and an even deadly ideology is on the rise. from lebanon meanwhile in geneva a second round of syrian peace talks has failed to produce results. then events already apologized to the syrian people. in a press conference here at mediator lakhdar brahimi apologizes william suffering from the un resolve conflict the warring sides remained locked in a stalemate where the government wanted to focus on combat terrorism in syria and the opposition refusing to set aside their calls for assad to step down jonathan steele a columnist for britain's guardian newspaper thousand one of the key obstacles to peace is a foreign aid being provided to syria's rebels it's hard for sides to admit it to
spend all this money in treasure and lost lives for not getting victory and so they still cling to that hope the casing of the top of my sink with the u.n. pressure from me and it's the regional countries. convincing the government and the opposition that they must make a deal and it then 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 in reverting to being what it should be just an internal problem among syrians. u.k. authorities are alarmed over the number of britain seeking up arms to fight alongside the rebels in syria british nationals are among the hundreds of e.u. citizens who have joined the jihad is our just bully boy who has a story of a british national who reportedly became a suicide bomber in the war zone. facts are sometimes stranger than fiction this is the street where abdul wahid the first suspected british suicide bomber in syria is
