no broadcast on state t.v. as his normal handler reuss they were playing so called chris and speeches the same time as this was happening we've now heard it's going to be broadcast tonight in the main news show but extraordinary scenes and a very tense atmosphere now after after this inauguration and clearly not his critics were on hand either so what is the opposition saying here. well we've heard various obscene figures some comparing this to a kind of. coronation of a kind of leader of the mafia clan saying that he was illegitimate already he's made himself even more so by doing this we've already seen people going out with placards to protest against this students joining people just gathering outside the neighborhoods there's a big protest expected tonight but the capital is on lockdown we were told by security officials who stopped us going live on the last the last hour that basically we're not allowed to film anywhere any time in the center for all of today various reports coming in of anything up to 5 kilometer radius around the
1:04 pm
center in lockdown and a real attempt of see to look down on any kind of coverage or any kind of reaction to this integration nic what effect do you think this inauguration is going to have on this ongoing the protest movement do you think this is going to galvanize demonstrators even more. i think it's definitely going to show that this government is feeling the heat is feeling the pressure this is not the man and the kind of pump that he would have liked to have had this definition is that he is feeling the pressure and wants to get this out of the way as quickly as possible to then presumably begin a crackdown against his opponents people have being ridiculous in this online it's already given birth to countless means i think this will bring people out but definitely very nervous hours and days ahead here in minsk as people really wait to see what kind of violence what kind of measures the regime is willing to use now it gets protesters but no sign from the protest is the veritie willing to go back to being quiet for you and. our correspondent nick conley covering the very latest
1:05 pm
there in minsk thank you. the european commission has unveiled its plan to overhaul the e.u.'s migration and asylum system appealing to member states to show solidarity with one another european countries have long disagreed about the best way to manage migration under the new proposals countries like hungary and poland who refuse to accept migrants would instead offer money equipment or personnel to help patrol borders the european commission president was enough on the line said the continent must rise to the challenge on migration this package reflex of fair and reasonable balance between responsibility and solidarity among member states we all share the benefits we all share the burden. this package also reflects a very pragmatic and realistic approach we know that we have to build
1:06 pm
trust among member states and citizens confidence that we can manage this as a union. alexander phenomenon is in brussels covering the story for us hi alexandra tell us more about what is in this proposal well as we just heard or the off on the line has described this proposal. for realistic and that is indeed what it seems to be not an entirely new plan revolutionarily plan but a kind of compromise looking at the fact how difficult it is to find an agreement on that issue a key takeaways here the european commission is banning the idea of mandatory refugee quartos. requiring you members to take in a certain amount of refugees or migrants and they are a key issue is that the european incoming commission is saying it's important to be
1:07 pm
the screenings for new arrivals use external borders and that it's important to intensify affords to return those who have no right to stay in the european union so overall i would say that this proposal is showing that europe is once again getting tough from my gram's. alexander it does really seem to be a strategy to try to appease some of the countries who don't want to take in migrants so tell us more about how some of the incentives and compromises in this proposal work. well indeed it seems to be the strategy here to reach out and address the concerns of those countries who still refuse to take in refugees and migrants the european community commission here is saying go ok if you're not willing to do that you need to contribute in arbor areas key word here is flexible contributions those contrie will be asked to provide money to fund those so-called
1:08 pm
reception centers or to take over the responsibility for those who needs to be returned to their countries because the asylum claims were rejected in the european union so bad. tempted by the european commission to to make sure that those country are on board and that finally and agreement can be found on this very sensitive issue. and alexandra just quickly what makes the commission think that they have the solution now because this has been one of most politically sensitive issues in the european union well when you talk to you or fish bowls or even german politicians they tell you that everyone now everyone now understands that something needs to be change and that is their argument to say that the chances for agreement right now are higher than before. our correspondent on sunday for norman reporting for us from brussels thank you so much. now
1:09 pm
for a roundup of some other stories making headlines around the world thousands have taken to the streets of bowl garia for an independence day march against the government people gathered outside parliament in sofia to demand the resignation of prime minister boyko but he sought and his cabinet they accused them of corruption and of having links to all of parks. in brazil flash floods have hit the city of rio de janeiro blocking roads and leaving cars stranded residents have been struggling to make their way through water logged streets after torrential rains hit neighborhoods to the south of the city. more than half of the pilot whales stuck in australia's biggest stranding on record are believed to have died rescuers have been struggling to free the nearly $500.00 mammals beached off test mania the stranded pod was 1st believed to be about how the signs before further aerial searches spotted another group of around $200.00 nearby.
1:10 pm
russian opposition leader alexina vali has been discharged from the hospital in berlin not only was airlifted to germany last month after becoming sick during a visit to siberia the kremlin critic posted a photo here on social media we're about to see after leaving the hospital he wrote that he still has a long we have to have german chancellor angela merkel describe the case as attempted murder after lab analysis showed he was poisoned with a novi chalk nerve agent russia has said there was no evidence of a crime and our chief political editor michelle acuteness standing by outside the charity hospital in berlin where election of ali was being treated what has the hospital said about these release. well the hospital said that he was well enough to leave the hospital which he has done over the past 24 hours.
1:11 pm
and that it's still unclear what long term effect there will be since then just a short while ago. himself was taken to social media and you posted on instagram reporting the moment he saw himself in the mirror for the very 1st time where he said that he thought he was a character from lord of the rings after those 24 days in intensive care 16 of those in artificially induced coma it is usually sarcastic tone he speaks of the recovery still to make that there should be play station on a medical prescription because doctors have advised him to spend more time playing games and also taking to social media which i'm sure he will be do more in the coming days of the big question of course now as we've seen a photograph online where he is in a park whether he will return to russia from what he says in that post where he
1:12 pm
talks about the physiotherapy that he still requires this doesn't sound like he's going to leave his doctors necessarily any time soon because he says he still needs them but clearly a step forward in his recovery and a new. tone from the who's also referencing to vladimir putin saying that the provocation failed so far michel and we know this case has put yet another strain on german russian ties how does the situation stand right now on the diplomatic front. well that's a clear allegation not just from the vanu but also from the german chancellor after she learned that nerve agent used was not the chalk which was developed in soviet russia that this was an attack on a volleys life that was weeks ago after she had that confirmation and that russia had some questions to answer ever since we seem to tell you who we believe with both sides blaming each other of not. a lot of withholding information or not
1:13 pm
giving handing over evidence in the case of germany and so i think this will stay at the political level with those very loud calls also from europe that there be an independent investigation into what actually occurred and relations really strange of course and the big focus is on the north stream to pipeline which directly links germany and russia for the very 1st time there was a crack in the determination by the german chancellor to that project go ahead interesting the own stuff are against that you had an exclusive interview with one of his key people as saying that that would be something that could be used as propaganda that's what we say this sounds very many question marks over how much political impact in effect this case will have our chief political editor michel because man central berlin for us thank you it's. and you're watching

the conflict and environment observatory about the potential scale of a disaster caused by the tanker think there's a whole range of snow in the worst case an average extension have a huge fire and catastrophic spill one of the issues of these tankers is that they need to be kept operational to pump gases into the storage tanks and helps to keep down the levels of these falls are gases which actually come off it all is stored in that this vessel hasn't been doing that for years now service protection a very large bottle of explosive gases of the oil and i suppose a huge fire risk structurally the vessel is sitting in a hot she made climate on the salty. the water and so we can see from the outside in the photos up in released good evidence of corrosion without leaks reported in may this yes i know the potential is there for a spill at variance to diety and this is 1140000 barrels of oil 4 times what was in the exxon valdez is a somewhat different kind of oil but you know the potential is there for
