8:04 am
epoxy brothers and their government resign. but protested, say the violence unleashed by the prime ministers, a boarders forced them to respond. police and the armed forces have the challenge of now restoring. come. okay, let's talk to michelle, who's life for us in the capitol manella where we're saying earlier that it's a bit commoner that curfews you were talking about. your report has been extended until wednesday. what is the risk that we're going to see more violence at the moment? from water we've seen on the streets in colombo, are things seem to have settled to some extent. obviously there is a curfew extended to wednesday morning. that is a heavy military presence on our way. here we got stopped at multiple check points, manned by the air force, some by the army and the navy is out. the police is out. so very much, those celtic scenes where you saw a protest, there's
8:05 am
a sort of taking all the law into their own hands. they seem to have retreated back into their homes. that anger, that frustration that really spilled over on to the streets seems to have abated for the moment. rob, the protest has been calling for the full resignation of the government. we've seen the prime minister go now his brother, the president, is under, under pressure to go as welsh. what is the response of the government? how widespread could this be? i mean, this entire protest campaign began over a month ago now. and one of the resounding sort of themes of the campaign was gotta go home, which is a reference of present gotta be roger boxer. obviously, the 2nd wrong of that was for the raj boxes to go home, given that the prime minister, his elder brother and former president was serving also in that cabinet. and right

8:07 am
a system change. so even this resignation of the prime minister is unlikely to appease the protesters. obviously, the president is trying to look at all kinds of alternatives, an interim government, a national coalition, the unity government. because obviously there still some time left on his term, but people seem to be digging in their heels and seeing enough is enough. we saw that resolve yesterday in fighting that violence that had been unleashed against the producers. so right now that resolve seems to be holding, and they say everyone needs to go and they need fresh blood. i know you're going to be sent across the story for us, but for normal fernandez in colombo, thank you very much indeed. the marcus family may be returning to power in the philippines. unofficial results from a presidential election suggested ferdinand marco's junior could become the next

8:18 am
couldn't do is, is, is give a version of revisionist history that took the form of this information that we have seen to commonly as the russian playbook. now what is fortunate is that we are all aware reporters around the world are aware. europeans are where americans are aware of the disinformation factory that present impudent and the kremlin seemed to be. but the suggestion that this war, that was prompted by directed by president putin was prompted by western aggression or western plans is patently false and absurd. the russian ambassador to poland has been dozing red paint by anti war protesters during a memorial service on bicycle on the air. and his stuff were surrounded by demonstrators at a reflex ceremony of the soviet military cemetery and more sole. protesters
