♪ this is al jazeera. ♪ hello and welcome to the news hour, i'm in doha and these are top stories russia frees the u.s. captain and three other crew members of a green peace ship. rescue workers in latvia pull bodies after the collapse of a super market and at least 32 people have died. >> i'm tim friend, london police say detectives are investigating the case of three women held as
5:01 am
slaves for 30 years. ♪ russia has freed on bail the captain and two crew members of the green peace ship arrested in an arctic protest two months ago and 15 members of the group have been released this week and bail hearings for the detained are ongoing and although there is concern now for one activist who was ordered to stay in prison until february. and green peace activist anthony spoke to al jazeera after he left prison. >> we will look at the problem and the problem is that climate change is very serious, the weather is getting much worse and if we don't act soon then it's going to get far worse and now is the time to do something about climate change and green peace have taken the initiative to try and save the arctic so we
5:02 am
can only hope we are successful. >> reporter: green peace ship entered arctic waters in september. some activists on the vessel attempted to scale an off shore drilling platform owned by russia gas and the group was detained after the protest, activists were initially charged with piracy and changed to hooliganism and they face up to seven years in prison and peter sharp is in st. petersburg for us, controversial from the start this case but how surprising was the decision to free on bail more activists including of course the captain? >> well, i think this was part of the process and been happening all week where we have seen and have gone into court in batches in st. petersburg and basically making an application for bail. all but one of the applications have succeeded and then they
5:03 am
were taken back to prison for a short period of time while paperwork was done to enable them to be released and bail was posted so we saw the captain and anthony and two others released from crazy prison in st. petersburg just a few hours ago. now i have to point out they are free, they are out of prison, they are on bail but they are not at the moment going to be allowed to leave russia and have no entry visits on their passport because they were arrested at sea and no travel documents so it's going to be sometime really before they can see themselves going home and then they will be on call then to return once they find out when the trial date is set. >> reporter: so what happens next in this case, are there going to be more bail hearings? >> well, we are in the process of three. the last three are being held today. one has already been granted and we are expecting more people to
5:04 am
be released on bail later in the day and possibly tomorrow. the real concern now is the case of colin russell. he is a 59-year-old radio operator aboard the vessel. he was the first one to appear in court and his bail application was refused point blank and his detention orders extended for another three months and there was speculation that he may have been involved in the actual physical attempt to climb the rig during this operation but he is a radio operator and there is no reason why according to green peace why he should still be held and his lawyer is making a very strong appeal to get him bail along with the others. >> and like we said at the beginning this has been very controversial from the start. is there still pressure on the russian government surrounding this case because of course they did change the charge to a lessor one of hooliganism. >> that is right, right from the
5:05 am
start president putin said it's not a case of piracy and was reduced a week after that of hooliganism and it carries a 7 year sentence. we will have to see, the decision lies in the russian legal system but they have moved by russian standards quickly and most of them will be out free, out of prison now in the next 24 hours and then it will be really up to the russian courts to see if they proceed with the cases against the 30. but again i must stress that there is a very firm appeal going into try and free the radio operator. >> all right, we will be watching that closely and peter sharp in st. petersburg. thank you. 32 people were killed when a super market roof collapsed in
5:06 am
latvia. >> this is left of a busy super market in the cab toll riga and they have been working into the morning to find anyone who may be still trapped under the rubble. >> translator: i have a wife there. there is no information about her. whether she is alive or dead, wherever i call there is no information. >> reporter: it was crashing, most people started crying and screaming as it was sure those left inside after the first collapse would not be alive after the second fall. >> reporter: it happened during the busy evening shopping hours on thursday, it was the roof of the super market that first came crashing down and the impact was so strong it brought most of the high walls of the building. >> it is a huge building and the space when you have to work is pretty limited. we know foreign governments
5:07 am
offered some heft but latino authorities are saying thank you but no thank you because we have all the treatment and all the man power but the rubble is so big we have to do it very slowly and carefully not to injure anyone else if there is someone alive still under the rubble. >> reporter: it's not clear what caused the collapse but there are reports that the roof garden was being corrected on the building which only opened two years ago and police launched a criminal investigation, al jazeera. >> reporter: our reporter who you just heard in that report is on the line from riga, are the rescuers looking for people or is the effort over because this happened what 15 hours ago now? >> hi there. yes, rescue operation is still ongoing and it's probably going to be going on for 24 more
5:08 am
hours. people are coming and looking for their relatives, asking for any information but as was reported the rescue workers are trying to be very, very careful not to injure anyone else. >> reporter: of course is there any more information on what caused the collapse? >> well, the criminal investigation has been open up and police just came out with a report saying they are looking to three different ways, but all are connected with the construction of the building. any violations might be there, nobody really knows, the construction company has said that it will come out with a statement in about an hour. the mayor of riga has ordered to look at the other building that this company has built during the past few years to look carefully at what states are the
5:09 am
buildings now. basically i have to say that this is the largest tragedy that latvia has and the next two days will be mourning with three minutes moment of silence tomorrow at noon and basically all the country is in shock right now. >> reporter: indeed, and we will leave it there, thank you for bringing us up to date with the latest on the tragic accident there in latvia. three women have been freed in britain after apparently being held captive for 30 years. two people who were arrested in connection with the case have been released on bail. tim friend joins us live from london for new scott land yard there, tim the police are saying this is the worst case they have ever seen of its kind and clearly taking it seriously do we have details on the two people arrested and how strong the case is against those two?
5:10 am
>> well, the police are slowly but surely piecing together their case because of course the information they are getting is from the women themselves in the main and they are traumatized. and so they are having to tread very carefully indeed. as to more information about those two people who were initially arrested and subsequently released on bail, they are a man and a woman and not british nationals. one report suggests they might have been married and that is not confirmed, they are age 67. it's unlikely, we are told, that they were related to the captives. now, they were three women, 69-year-old malaysia and 57 and 30-year-old british woman and given they were held captive for
5:11 am
30 years it's highly likely the british woman spent her entire life in one form of captivity or another and some reports are suggesting she was born into survitude and the police are investigating and the two people who have been arrested are on bail until the new year. >> reporter: do we know how the women were actually freed? >> how they were freed is intriguing because a charity liased with the police throughout this case, one of the women who was held captive saw a television program in which the charity featured talking about people who were held captive, who were in servitude and about human trafficking and subsequently the woman made contact with the charity who then made contact with the
5:12 am
police and events went on from there and took place over several weeks. first of all two women were able to leave the house and were greeted by police as they left the house. they managed to escape and subsequently the third woman was released. so the charity played a crucial role in all this in that they were the initial point of contact for the woman, one of the women initially. >> reporter: what a remarkable story and tim friend there in london, thanks for that. at least 22 people have been killed in an explosion at an oil pipeline in eastern china. state media is reporting it was caused by leaked oil that caught fire in the port of qindow and thought the ruptured pipeline owned by the refiner sinopek was being repaired when it exploded and the incident is being

5:15 am
manager editor. now this only came to light because of an e-mail containing his comments, that was leaked to the public. there is one extract where he says the last few days have been most testing and i squarely take the blame for this, a bad lapse of judgment led to an unfortunate incident that rails against all we believe in and fight for. the managing editor has now been speaking to the media and this is some of what she has to say. >> he had a different version of the account contrary to what you have been saying in the media, i absolutely overruled his version and asked for a unilaterally unconditional apology from him extended to the journalist, within a day, she complained on a monday and the apology was extended to her by tuesday. >> and they are taking a
5:16 am
six-month break from work but this story is not going away, he is a member of the national commission for women. >> translator: he said arm committee would be set up but i think this is too late and should have been done earlier when the complainant demanded it and it was disappointing and the women commission directed the police to take up the measure because there is a concern from the accused. >> reporter: let's go straight to new deli and roman is there for us and this case keeps growing and still no charges filed against him, is that right? >> yes, this incident happened earlier in the week and no
5:17 am
charges definitely but for our viewers the investigation is deemed from the police in goa to start with the first incident report and they are legally bound to investigate such an incident when they hear of it and therefore they have asked the hotel whether this incident is alleged to have taken place on cc-tv footage and asked the victim to come forward and make statements. neither of those individuals have done that yet and so therefore you have this media frenzy about what exactly has been said and what was the content of the e-mail, the complaint that went from the alleged victim to her management team. and there are lots of organizations all complaining about what should have been done by the deputy editor and nobody really knows what the content of the e-mail is and that is what the police investigation will uncover and to let you know how big the story is becoming, i mean it shares the front

5:20 am
senators tightening sanctions will pressure the iranians essentially? >> yes, but i don't really know which way it would have an effect on the delegations here around the table. will it push them to try and come to a deal or will it make a deal less likely? what we do know of what is going on here at the moment is talks continue and detailed negotiation on a possible text taking place away from us in a five-star hotel and locked in the hotel and not coming out and not coming to speak to us and we know there was a meeting in the last couple of hours that took place between the iranian foreign minister mohamed and the eve foreign policy chief on behalf of the european powers here kathryn ashton and they had a meeting and went on for over a half an hour and at that meeting we have one bit of information that came from kathryn ashton's

aid agencies are covering education experiences of syrians because the government can't afford to and teachers get paid over time and freelancers are still getting hired but there is no funding to cover the costs of running two shifts. >> translator: we hired an additional thousand teachers and administration assistance of freelancers but the salaries and books the libraries are depreciating faster and this is all unplanned. >> reporter: the school day for both sides is shorter and each shift is only 4 1/2 hours long and lessons are shorter and so are the breaks, some say educating syrians is coming at the expense of jordan students. officials say double shift schooling is ineffective because the school has to teach the curriculum to two groups in one day. that leaves little or no time for arts classes and sports activities that make the whole
