5:06 pm
back into the burning building to try and help others trapped inside many survivors have spoken of how they would never have made it out alive if there weren't people like top down of their seventeen year old team of pollution is a student at an emergency services college with smoke filling the air he made it to the exit but heard a woman crying for help on able to find her children she pointed towards the fire and beamer ran back inside. i saw nothing there were thick black smoke everywhere her children crying and shouting and that's how i found out where there are three children were sitting in the corner of the room terrified trying. and the boy as all the boys grabbed my bow to hold it tight and took the girls by the collar and carried them out stuff at the winter cherry center risked their lives trying to get as many youngsters out of the building as they could. because it already when we looked at the it was full of people they started helping people to get out of there we have a vacuum at the end of this during those it's calling people to come to us there
5:07 pm

5:08 pm
from officials with rumors having circulated the death toll might be as high as three hundred these claims though were rejected by the investigation committee and later two by the protesters themselves. are you such a massive force to get. the british opposed to just leave it to my mother to look at you. see i was. like yeah it was like i was

5:10 pm
so. close you know i was going to say. meanwhile the investigation into what caused the fire is progressing the two main theories are malfunction of the fire safety system and arson five people have been arrested in connection with the tragedy among them two directors at the shopping center and the maker of the fire safety system in place one of the deadliest in russia in decades it took firefighters around twenty four hours to put it out the victims were mostly children who'd been celebrating the start of the school

holidays. italy is crying invasion and even threatening to expel french diplomats over a dramatic cross border migrant raid romas some of the french ambassador to french border police swooped on an italian railway station to make a suspected drug trafficking refugee take a drugs test italian prosecutors have now opened an investigation into the incident and while the foreign ministry in rome has kept a civilized tone some italian politicians haven't held back the behavior of french agents and better than a very serious matter will remind macron that now foreign agent can come here and assert their authority we are a sovereign country not a province of france we are not micron's toilet on top of expelling russian diplomats we should expel french ones that had no rights no rights this would be
5:12 pm
the first and the last time i'm very angry about what's happened. paris claims a bilateral deal allows them to cross italian borders in such cases but italian police insist that deal says france must notify them of its plans and says it failed to do so authorities are that the room inside the gardener to rail station was a migrant center and that it was therefore off limits moreover migrant center officials are outraged they're calling the raid interference and i'm doing that french offices intimidated the doctor there plus mediators and lawyers however france claims it did us a permission to enter the facility and the migrant in question agreed to take the your interest political science lecturer lorenzo pregnant sco who is in barton and she told us that in his opinion the french police are in the wrong the ngo which is running the migrant center in but at the mic here by the way i am
5:13 pm
a few hundred meters from there i am in a lot of making right now at the end declared the french authorities where you know way acting in an intimidating manner and so this act has been seen by many politicians and i would say by a large portion of the time in public opinion as an act of defiance a kind of violation of sovereignty on italian soil what has been said very clearly by italian authorities is that. italian police was not informed by by french customs agent. about your peroration which is against the provisions of the binational agreements. but this is just the latest migrant related scandal on the french italian border it comes just weeks after a volunteer was summoned by french police for saving a heavily pregnant migrant in the alps.
5:14 pm
well we were doing an ordinary patrolling to as we have regularly done since the beginning of winter to bring aid to people who passed the pass in difficult conditions during this patrol we spotted a group of people who were walking in snow there we saw that it was a family was two young children and pregnant women we gave them food and drinks and dry clothes i took my car to take it to the hospital. i mean to us they are asked for my documents and they catalogued my personal belongings they notified me of a hearing on wednesday and released me at midnight. to two astronomers who if the situation repeated itself tomorrow i would act in the same way i did the right thing telling journalist marcelo four told us that many in his country are appalled by france's behavior over the situation france is one of
5:15 pm
the toughest countries don't cooperate i thought they. already bought us with their very very aggressive rejecting every every time they find son the migrants tried to france and this is said to show that this is becoming a really critical for italy because italy cannot keep all these thousands and thousands of migrants. when used after this short break.

week both russian and americans having to pack their bags and leave for home or seattle consulate was closed while the americans were to shutter their mission in st petersburg moscow announced thursday would retaliate to washington's move expelling sixty u.s. and shutting down the diplomatic compound. in washington russia's ambassador to the u.s. on the telly and told of softies expelled colleagues as they got a plane for russia on sunday the plane carrying russian diplomats arrived in moscow all sixty ordered to leave america have now. u.s. diplomats are also expected to leave russia soon following moscow's main response is our russia's foreign minister outlined the steps taken so far. we don't. include the expulsion of the same number of u.s. diplomats and withdrawal of our consent for the us consulate in st petersburg as far as other states are concerned we will always give amir a response. for every russian diplomat kicked out from the two dozen or so
5:18 pm
countries one of their diplomats will be kicked out of russia almost all of those countries by the way either nato members or hopefuls the united states though may have to charter a jet sixteen evidence diplomats have been ordered to leave russia the same number kicked out by washington know what the u.s. consulate in st petersburg is being closed down in response to the closure of russia's consulate in seattle and mirrors spawn's no more no less and again moscow has called on the united states to stop it is proposed to us south or ities inciting in fueling this merican pain against our country to rethink incurred their reckless actions destroying bilateral relations with russia which remotely the nies any role in this poisoning says never before have we witness such mockery of
5:19 pm
international law it is also convened a special meeting of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons would be c.w. has sent technical experts to examine the substance with which the former russian double agent and his daughter were poisoned but their best the geisha will be technical. o.p.c. w. explosive arrived in london to analyze the substance used in the alleged poisoning of surrogate and you'll a script this will only allow them to distinguish the. chemical formula of the substance the o.p.c. w. technical secretariat doesn't have the mandate to verify the u.k.'s allegations by the way the investigation into the case is due to the u.k. and its allies insist that russia was behind this russia then guys any such thing and says that this entire affair is politically motivated there's been no
5:20 pm
investigation no trial no evidence only accusations which have taken a turn the literary rather like the beginning of crime and punishment in really crime. lord man he was a tree full of hours at this point. where all the confidence about the identity of the culprit the only question is whether he will first confess or be caught specially for boris johnson the dusty esky quote translated in english from a hundred trivets you can not make it where it's one hundred suspicions don't make it proof boris johnson went on to cement his case they make novacek we make light statements one is a hideous weapon specifically designed for assassination the other is a implausible theatrical prep with a mysterious buyers like me wouldn't anybody opinion is divided on what exactly
5:21 pm
boyish johnson meant or how exactly he hoped this would help his case not everybody seems so sold on russia bashing for example nine e.u. states chose not to take punitive action austria among them it says london put pressure on vienna to comply. a presentation that sums up the basis for why the us and half of the e.u. backed britain's expulsion of russian diplomats was leaked this week all six slides focused on accusations against moscow it began with the description of the nerve agent allegedly used in salzburg with the blame being placed squarely on russia the so-called evidence includes allegations of previous malign activity by moscow among them it was of cyber attacks alleged interference in elections and what the presentation calls the occupation of crimea former u.s. diplomat jim jatra splays that the russia cards being played to divert attention from internal issues in the west. this is a coordinated political warfare against russia it's global in scale and really has
5:22 pm
nothing to do with solsbury this is a political pretext just like the cut like the kind of accusations we've seen against syria on chemical weapons to ratchet up the pressure on moscow to discredit the recent russian election and also i think it's aimed at the world cup this summer look i don't think we go under and underestimate the degree of danger we're talking about here this is not just tit for tat this is just not the are we in a new cold war or not this is extremely dangerous that with the crisis that is brewing internally within the e.u. i think there was the necessity to to somehow shift the terms of the debate to say it's not about what's wrong with brussels what's wrong with the e.u. it's what's wrong with the russians and i think this will simply increase the pressure on countries like bulgaria like austria who don't don't want to go along with this. police find water cannons and tear gas at people protesting the expulsion of environmental squatters in the friend city of nuns on saturday on the
