obsolescence to make sure that we keep as much work product. headlines on the hour every hour welcome to it is to say here in moscow we have your latest world news in just a few hours now a humanitarian corridor will open up in the syrian enclave of eastern ghouta to allow civilians to leave the war ravaged district. is located just outside the capital damascus and has been occupied by various rebel and terror groups for years the violence there recently escalated with both sides accusing each other of targeting civilians and the new humanitarian corridor set up by russia will be located near the. camp and we understand buses and. they're on standby to evacuate
civilians from the embattled areas the people inside the rebel enclave are being notified about the location of the corridor or via leaflets text alerts and megaphone announcements first aid points have been set up near the exit to help those in need of urgent medical assistance however despite these efforts it is feared that civilians will be prevented from leaving the war zone as without gas dear of explains civilians dying they're dying from rebel shells from government bombs from bullets shrapnel and crossfire in damascus and in east ghouta the u.n. cease fire is dead on arrival no one stops shooting so the syrians are trying their own way humanitarian corridors backed by russia thousands of these leaflets being dropped over east ghouta by syrian helicopters
there are instructions for civilians on how to get out of the war zone maps with arabs follow them if you dare women of all the jews and children reportedly going to need to be forbidden by local armed groups from leaving the area for security reasons they've done it before in aleppo is limited rebels wouldn't let anyone out they shot at civilians trying to flee to government held areas they shelled humanitarian crossings and if you made it out that part is sure relatives same story in ghouta this is being going on for years the evidence indicates that non-state armed groups in eastern guta and in particular josh islam are also responsible for inflating the price of food and other basic necessities they're arbitrarily restricting the movement of civilians wishing to leave and the done thing and arbitrarily detaining people. you'd think this is important right all
those pundits and activists screaming about good and not once have they asked the pertinent question going to happen i think at the heart we welcome the security council's decision regarding a ceasefire because of the burden on our families and he said this suffering must be lifted the decision to stop the bloodshed caused by the regime an ace in my home and the alarm. when the regime is not abiding by the un resolution i cannot stand still and watch and defend myself and our families in good time why are they still there despite their access to the spokes person of the army of islam the jihad this group that holds east ghouta they have not asked him why his group is blocking woman and kids from leaving a war zone it's good press for him to stand there and complain that innocents are dying while meeting that they're dying big because his own rebel fighters won't let
them leave the armed groups inside east ghouta will not allow those people to leave simply because they know they will be the next target after that it will deprive them from a very strong media arm because those civilian deaths among the civilian actually created sympathy all over the middle east and all over the world i think human are you almost as you know a propaganda tool these bloody war and syria so with it will continue i don't believe it will stop but definitely with this according to your human humility included or actually could do it use that heel and casualties among those people. an investigation into one of the worst cases of child sex abuse in the u.k. is stalling simply due to a lack of qualified personnel artie's poly boy kotex
a closer look. according to this senior officer investigating the scandal one hundred more police officers are needed to uncover the truth so far police have managed to interview seventeen percent of a possible one and a half thousand victims due to a shortage in specially trained detectives. it's a really specialist area engaging and interviewing vulnerable victims a lot of our victims were children when they were abused but they're now adults and have associated problems as a result of that abuse including suicidal tendencies mental health issues drug and alcohol addiction the rotheram scandal led to a national outcry when the scale of the child abuse was first exposed back in twenty twelve two years later an independent inquiry found that decades through systemic failures in policing and social services the sexual abuse of children went on right under the noses of the orthorexic yes gangs of men the majority of whom
were of pakistani origin preyed on mostly white girls aged from eleven to fifteen many of the victims thought they were in relationships with their abusers when it. is in yorkshire were accused of failing to tackle the problem partly through fear of being branded racist on the part of the authorities in their cases they were actually saying that these girls made a lifestyle choice it's about the fact that the authorities didn't want to be branded racist the ringleaders of the rod the room grooming going last year i think you know the distant relatives of mine but you know what it doesn't change the responsibility that people like me have on tackling this particular issue so i've been campaigning against child sexual exploitation and street gang grooming gangs who are predominantly of a pakistani origin for over ten years the investigation into rather abuses has cost
ten million pounds so far four individuals have been convicted eighteen have been charged and thirty eight have been arrested no one senior has been held to account and with just seventeen percent of the victims interviewed so far all this. may just be the tip of the ice bag. and i t. expert from california is fighting to stay out of jail and avoid paying a hefty fine due to his passion for recycling electronics eric lundgren has been accused of creating thousands of illegal copies of microsoft windows to help sell refurbished p.c.'s. a sustainable waste advocate helped to launch one of america's first electronic hybrid recycling facilities it's where discarded mobile phones and other electronics are given a new lease on life admits to using copies of windows were pushing old computers
here's how he explains the process for microsoft's software itself gets missing d.l.l. files and below where and viruses but over time will break down the software so that it doesn't operate and function as intended you might have seen that before if you ever use the computer and it just seems to slow down over time and it needs a every fresh which is what the purpose of a restore cd is so you have a license with your computer and that follows your computer in perpetuity until your computer's no longer working and that computer can be used by hundreds of people thousands of people and the license follows the hardware so the hardware itself over time might get missing d.l.l. files or it might get viruses in bloatware and what you'll end up doing is you want to refresh your re-install your valid copy of license on your computer and to do that you need three things you need to see a way you need a license and you need to restore media restore cd the restore cd is free you can download it anywhere online but the c.e.o.
and license have to come from microsoft they're the only ones that can provide you with that last year and was given fifteen months in jail plus a fifty thousand dollars fine but an appeals court allowed him to argue his case once more prosecutors allege the expert made twenty eight thousand counterfeit copies of microsoft's operating system which the company maintains deprived of profits insists it wasn't a profit making scheme as he wanted to prevent second hand computers from turning into a waste. i'm fighting this battle and i'm hoping that the more transparency that occurs in my case that people will understand what the purpose of of all this is i was very very shocked when i was given a prison sentence for extending the life cycle of electronics and practicing recycling and trying to empower people i think i was helping people extend the life cycle of their electronics to combat planned obsolescence and to make sure that we
keep as much working product out of landfills as possible i've been a recycler for sixteen years and all i care about is the environment i want to make sure the things that work continue to work for the benefit of mankind. one of the holiest christian sites in jerusalem has been shut down in protest against israel's decision to levy taxes on religious properties religious leaders have criticized the decision doubling it in an attempt to weaken the christian presence in the city or to use travel to the church and spoke to some rather disappointed. i'm standing here in one of the most sacred sites in christianity of the church of the holy city this is a place where does believe that christ was crucified and buried and ways are wrecked it but as you can feel the door to the church is closed following a decision by church leaders after jerusalem municipality announced it was going to start collecting tens of millions of dollars in property taxes from churches for
church owned property without houses of worship now this flies in the face of a generations old agreement i've been talking to paul gans here from all over most of whom of course disappointed many thought as they come to the city of jerusalem on the holy land and they're leaving their family is a pool of blood and deal for of money to spend on hotel is transportation. and so on to leaving their jobs and to leaving their family and to come to his the church and they want to put the fun the church is closed and he felt bad because we came all the way from the philippines and this is actually one of the highlights or the highlights of the. pilgrimage and we were already in front of the church when the church was closed and that's really bad we're sad because one of the main reasons coming to israel was to visit the church for us to have to find
a peaceful solution should talk about it like a human being. sit down and don't use it politically for any saying not say israel is not such a church as nobody just sit down and live what religion should be it should be peaceful church leaders are also concerned of a proposed legislation that they fear could result in the state being able to confiscate such land but the sponsors of the bowl say that they're not trying to interfere with the church and what it does with its own property but only when that property is sold to a third. given israel properties belonging to churches synagogues and mosques are not taxed it's often clear how the situation what was also itself coming as it does just weeks before easter. to be slim. the russian presidential election has already started at least in northwest siberia which became the first region to cost ballots in early polling this was organized
seemed wrong. just don't hold. me. to shame. to stay active. and engaged with. the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans and.
