who has been pushing for stricter immigration laws says it's the european union's biggest achilles heel. the idea of open borders europe has shown to be a utopia and we have the choice of the european idea or reality as we live in the real world we can see what comes across our borders and not least at least what this leave in denmark was stolen goods have increased we cannot see the just watch that happen the same thing we see with the euro the instruction of europe even in countries that were meant to have it every year and couldn't do the proper way we see the e.u. . disintegrating and i can see that happening all over the place not only in boom or we might just be the first one to take steps to avoid further problems for our country the e.u. it's an idea it's an ideology if you like is disintegrating. we want to know what do you think about how closing the borders will affect europe's unity and here's

3:10 am
already shows that the world of terrorism is connected to each other and when we talk about the problem of terrorism the really there are simply no borders between countries and that the problem of terrorism is a global issue for example here in russia's north caucasus and this volatile region where we are right now after a number of. leading hands of terrorism and with links to the international terrorist organization al qaida have been killed and they were behind some of the worst terrorist attacks on the russian capital and now it's really no matter where the terrorist attacks happens now the same people are behind this moves and really we are fighting the one single anime and several several years ago at the world saad. there are present here and russia's north caucasus. rebels but now the situation has changed and russia's most wanted. was put
3:11 am
by the united states on. the list of the world's most wanted terrorist now all of this moves really show with thoughts of the problem of terrorism as a global issue and it's far from being solved. all right matthew thanks very much indeed for bringing us this update live from logic of cause and russia's north caucasus. well so have here in our crime and punishment for deaths in the balkans war. you know you get a mandate to disarm and then they're telling you actually wall don't disarm bellbird breaks out and you're the one left responsible as of that score it puts the blame for the deaths of three muslims in the massacre on benevolence some say it's the view when that's the guilty party. and while some places strive for in the panels we hear how emotions are running high in one country over the prospect of becoming part of it stronger neighbor not everyone would consider

to what happened in seventy eight so you could see that they were actually put in a quite a difficult position politics were being played high politics with people's lives you know you get a mandate to disarm and then they're telling you actually well don't disarm and then babbar breaks out and you're the one left responsible. mobile phones are increasingly sophisticated these days by there is one the use you might not have considered catching fish and even troller cruz used to rely on luck for a good catch but as preassure now reports it's a different kind of network that's funding their fortunes. mohun kumar revs up his engine for a day of fishing off the coast of carolina the southernmost state in india with a little bit of i studied in school until the seventh grade but then i had to leave school because we were not economically well off so i had to help my dad with fishing kumar is one of thousands of fishermen in the state who wake up at one o'clock in the morning to earn a living for decades fishermen like kumar relied on luck and prayer to find
3:16 am
a good catch but all that has changed since the introduction of the mobile phone in the state more than ten years ago but. if the fish is not available where we go fishing fisherman in other parts of the sea call us and tell us where we might be able to find a good catch then we go to that particular place. in addition because of the new ease of communication kumar is able to find out how much demand is that his local market and the prices the buyers are offering in order to determine where best to sell his fish today he is making double the amount of money he was making before he started using a mobile phone he now owns his own boat and says he is able to send his three daughters to college india has the fastest growing mobile phone market in the world in the most growth is happening in rural areas what may be seen as a convenience in the west is being utilized by indian fishermen revolutionizing their business and turning them into entrepreneurs and business men in their
3:17 am
communities most of these fishermen have been doing this work for generations and never imagined they'd become so tech savvy they had watched their fathers and grandfathers come home from sea several times with no fish at all but today that never happens you know about a little bit of there's a lot of difference between the times when we used to go fishing with stick boats and now when we go fishing with engine but after the arrival of the phone it's become easier for us to studies show that mobile phones aren't just empowering the fisherman in the community more competition means better prices for consumers on average they fallen by four percent it's a new quality of life for the people of this community who never dreamed that they would escape poverty. most fishermen are illiterates but we want to give a proper education to our children and that is possible because of the earning we get from the fishing business there's no doubts that mobile phones have helped. providing new opportunities by advancing their tradition with technology preassure
