took place on the child the bus where both the mother and the grandmother of the three month old baby were killed the girl was said and that is the report according to some of the doctors the girl was saved by a blanket in which she was wrapped which prevented her from receiving life threatening injuries from the debris that went flying now it regarding the state of health of both girls the doctors are remaining cautiously optimistic because their injuries are serious and so is their condition overall eighteen people have been brought into a wall school for treatment and these are some of the more serious cases out of the more than forty people who have sustained injuries thirty four people have been killed in the two terror attacks in volgograd traditionally new year's is one of the biggest holidays in the country but obviously this is due it is have been seriously dampened by the horrific attacks in volgograd in fact of the first three days of the year are declared days of mourning in the volgograd region there is
also an alert of fifteen day long alerts for heightened terror. danger in the region as well and the mood is also exacerbated by the fact that there are thousands of police who have been brought in from other regions as well as internal troops who are literally calming the city of all grad and the region looking for possible clues and also of course to prevent any other terror attacks from happening again so obviously a very desperate kind of trying time for the volgograd region at the moment. following that time with some russian and. i have called for the toughest of responses to terrorism they want to bring banned the death penalty for anyone responsible opponents say the current law is enough for a closer look at that debate go to our website. the you lifted its seven year migration restrictions on ball garia and romania but authorities in the two poorest countries deny this will lead to
a massive influx which has been the subject of much scaremongering in the british press and a recent poll shows that a quarter of britain's one drastic action taken to curb the number of migrants has pointed out take some leading up to the new year the british government haven't released any estimates about the number of remain ians ambled carians that they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been lifted for them and that uncertainty hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public. and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely anywhere within the european union euro skepticism and public concern say the mass immigration
a written all time high what are you currently doing to stop the influx of non skilled workers in from the e.u. and upon into do we've made absolutely sure that it's not possible for people to come here simply to claim benefits to a putting a brace very tough measures in controls but the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying that person can cope with very many and garion migration according to the paper instead of alarming the public the government merely needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing around by making about it now it's completely absurd it's quite important for politicians to step back and explain that this is not the end of the world but on the whole immigration and indeed free movement within europe and you know been quite beneficial to the u.k.
economy remaining in diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by that portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hardworking and will contribute to british society something that economists had a happy to back up over be available evidence is the migration to britain has been a net positive both in terms of cultural and richmond economic in which we have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working throughout the year and they enjoy the benefits of that so if we start setting up you shouldn't draw benefits for migrants then we can expect a quick cool cool despite the politicians tough talk in the tabloid headlines fears of a flood of migrants have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in officials most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway. judging by
the weather here who can blame them. see london. immigration is just one of the issues pushing people across europe to political extremes and the financial crisis has seen the popularity of far right groups across the region and now there's concern about the methods being used to push their bonuses forward. a new form of pastime is spreading among america's gangs and suspected members of the public being targeted by random attacks just for the fun of it. reports now on a dangerous game that has already been blamed for several deaths. you're walking down the street minding your own business and without warning police say they are investigating yet another knockout attack attackers mainly in their teens targeting victims at random it's called the knockout game the goal of this violent and twisted so called game is to knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch
a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been randomly assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest a seventy six year old woman was walking along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work surrounded me one of them as i tried to get away one of them stepped out towards me. and. with their clothes is hit me in the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have been viewed by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place
in broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue struggling to curb the string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe. former n.y.p.d. officer rabbi gary moskowitz is offering his seventh degree black belt skills for free to knock out victims and others seeking protection we're going up to someone who works worker you must learn how to be a where you're more for how to fight if some go through time where the knockout attacks are for him and for him ready to moskowitz believes are likely motivated by gang initiation was something the n.y.t. . he hasn't officially acknowledged if they acknowledge that there's a guy who had a problem is they have to really try to curb all the gangs and they can't do that so fast here so a lot of times they don't want to put a name on something right away because if they put a name want to run they have to go after r.t. reached out to the n.y.p.d. to find out what america's most powerful police department is doing to combat the
knockout epidemic our questions and interview requests were ignored it is not fair to ask any police for parm to be able to be assigned to everybody in the shrewd they can protect their morals and also in new york city streets the big apple's mass surveillance system does actually allow officials to know where and when many of the crimes are occurring but so far filming the knockouts hasn't helped to prevent them marina port ny artsy new york. it was also international and those more to come later in the program. we'll take you on a ride through the beautiful mountains of the caucuses it's saying that which will welcome those taking a train to the olympic. unexplored antarctica what is it in this icy expanse that attracts the people who come here.
now i only go to the dock. and enter into. a new generation of polar explorers is coming. we have a new group of specialists here now all of them are young how are they going to get along with each other i don't know. do. i used to be a bureaucrat. seriously. what adventures await in this mysterious land where do they live what do they eat and what are they actually doing it on top to go.
approximately sixteen percent imports came from illegal fishing. the european union is ironically taking fish from some of the poorest nations on earth so this is a very serious and very urgent problem that needs immediate international action. on full day enter our territorial waters they. fish they load this fish into the ships and leave for europe. today illegal fishing just taking the bread out of our mouths. millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a lifetime food supply no charge. they can the very strong

eight has launched a trend that could be difficult to revise the far right is rapidly gaining ground across the european union with the u.k. greece and france among those witnessing the spread of nationalism to own of an hour. from the d.l. in britain in the north to golden dawn in greece and the south far right groups are making their voices heard in europe. this financial crisis affected everyone and it has allowed the right wing organizations to give people someone to blame for their problems it's those people's fault that is how they recruit greece has seen a marked increase in support of the far right and neo nazi groups golden dawn and all guys ation the right did by their critics as hooligans and thugs heralded by their supporters as the savior for greece for the greeks and they systematic and not going to preach and cultivate. violent behavior but
they attack systematically immigrants present golden dawn have made it further than most they have elected officials on their books including current greek m.p. elias comes to the out us it's not only in politics that extreme right to abuse of permeating this goal celebration by the athens he ordered to stop the itis so the midfielder banned for life from the national team despite his claims that he didn't know what the salute meant but the clearest indicator of the popularity of the far right will be when europeans go to the polls in may to vote in the e.u. parliamentary elections one of those parties on the rise in france's modi depends on national front that this will hundred on course european people are realizing that the use in empire the soviet union that in fact is destroying their freedom
despite insistences that they want to take part in the political discourse we've seen repeated violent clashes involving these groups even in some of the most stable nations like austria where around a third of people voted for parties that are considered the right wing in a recent election. so we need to slow down immigration i have nothing against foreign us but enough is enough. e.u. is saying where the money should go to like. poor countries on its own country and it used to wouldn't be like. dictate everything. it used to be the. interest spruced and the e.u. second no it's only. it seems as long as europe's finances continue to languish in the red more and more its people are seeking answers to the right
key to all of germany. and. the next button social trends head believes right wing policies are gaining support because they propose alternatives and it doesn't matter what their tentative is are the financial crisis is really to keep these parties have gained support in recent years the crazy. distrust of politicians is it has led to distrust of immigration or immigrants and i think what they're offering is not a very concrete alternative in terms of policy in terms of economic policy support for these parties is really based on you know and dislike of the established political regime whatever that is and so people are looking for some alternative and these parties come in and provide that but i don't think it's clear to people what they actually represent or what the consequences of their policies would be.
next hour marks guys that put his finger on some of the reasons europe is still dealing with the financial fallout i here's a quick preview. we now know that people who are in charge of economics know absolutely nothing about money for example none of their economic models include money they just modeling based on certain assumptions that don't include debt so in the u.k. economy as close to a thousand percent debt to g.d.p. . inclusive of bank dead national debt household debt corporate debt that's a thousand percent what you iceland before blew up but i was born tells us this is a good this is a recovery this is good news and this to paper the times of london carries a story saying he's the britain of the year he's the cloud of the year he should be getting the clown of the year meanwhile the clown association over there at the festival of red nose day one of the color comic relief they say they're out there actually investing in cigarette companies gambling companies energy companies
they're the ones investing in the worst the worst of the worst in terms of companies so the real clowns are investing in death and destruction and this guy is not supposed to be a clown is out there doing a clown or james getting people more into debt. for you is they pick a ship when you can have designs to thrive behind. the suspicious steam than detected coming from the damage on the plants operating through ponds to one side state interests are not also waiting for you that. interview by americans and it's a cheap has been dubbed the most hated to point to say a teen was made promises of years express their dislike for it playing to. the middle of these policies if you.
