news live from our moscow h.t. brand new headquarters you're watching our team with me to see how often of. well syria's rebels say that at least sixty people have been killed in a government airstrike on a bakery in the central hama province state run media broadcast the denial instead of accusing the opposition of the killings designed to smear the authorities and the international peace envoy visited them ask us how much promise had a witnessed intense fighting in the past few days meanwhile russia's foreign minister has rebuffed speculation that moscow is looking to get asylum to the president of syria and that russia is shielding his government sergey lavrov spoke exclusively to our team more on that now from our correspondent in europe is going to. russia's foreign minister once again stressed that there could only be
