    It's probably CGI.

    What is CGI?

    Computer generated imagery? Like in Star Wars Rogue 1 where deceased actor Peter Cushing appeared alive, well and putting on a great show.

    What's the point in having news, whether on TV/radio or in newspapers, if you can't believe a word of what you're reading? It's all very well being cynical, but if you set out to believe nothing, you'll probably end up believing anything.

    Was it Peter Cushing? I thought it was the bloke out of Holby City made up to look like him.

    The Holby City bloke did the voice and was on set while filming. The CGI Cushing was then layered over the top of this.

    Weirdly not an approach they are taking for the upcoming Solo stand alone film...

    Lots of arrests but I expect they will be charged with public order offences rather than with the terrorism offences their organisation merits. Governments need to get on top of this sharpish. Militias cannot be allowed to control public spaces.

    Don't dismiss it just because it's on RT. This was on news here and has been widely reported as far as I can tell, provided you're prepared to look beyond the BBC.

    Local authorities in Nantes squabble over hundreds of vagrants occupying public park, posing public health risk:
