Hi, I'm Hayley, coming

up on Newsround:

0:00:040:00:08

A spy mystery involving

Russia and the UK.

0:00:080:00:12

A Chinese clay army

on display in Liverpool

0:00:120:00:14

And...

0:00:140:00:20

The hostel where you can

pretend to be an astronaut!

0:00:200:00:28

Officials in Russia are being asked

to explain what they know

0:00:370:00:39

about happened to a former spy who's

been hurt here in the UK.

0:00:390:00:42

Ayshah has more on this.

0:00:420:00:44

This is Sergei Skripal,

he's from Russia and was jailed

0:00:440:00:46

there more than ten years

ago for being a spy,

0:00:460:00:49

but he was released and now lives

here in the UK in Salisbury.

0:00:490:00:55

Just over a week ago,

he was found on a bench

0:00:550:01:03

in the city centre along

with his 33-year-old daughter Yulia.

0:01:030:01:06

They were both very poorly.

0:01:060:01:07

It's thought they'd been

poisoned deliberately.

0:01:070:01:08

It's also thought a policeman

was affected by the poison

0:01:080:01:11

after going to help find

out what happened.

0:01:110:01:13

He's in hospital too.

0:01:130:01:16

Skripal spied on Russia,

where he's from, for Great Britain

0:01:160:01:18

and that's why many people think

he's been hurt.

0:01:180:01:22

The British Prime Minister

says the poison used

0:01:220:01:24

to attack him was made in Russia.

0:01:240:01:26

The Government has concluded

that it is highly likely that Russia

0:01:260:01:30

was responsible for the act

against Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

0:01:300:01:36

But a member of the Russian

government says that's rubbish.

0:01:360:01:38

Theresa May says Russia has

until midnight to explain

0:01:380:01:40

properly what happened.

0:01:400:01:45

Skripal and his daughter had been

to a restaurant in a pub that day.

0:01:450:01:49

People who'd also been there have

been told to wash the clothes

0:01:490:01:52

they were wearing and any items

they had with them.

0:01:520:01:55

Health experts say the risk

to the public is low though.

0:01:550:01:59

Emergency services and army experts

are investigating and helping

0:01:590:02:01

to keep people safe.

0:02:010:02:08

OK history fans,

stick around for this,

0:02:080:02:10

we're heading to Liverpool to see

an ancient underground army

0:02:100:02:17

that's been kept hidden

for thousands of years.

0:02:170:02:19

Martin s got this.

0:02:190:02:20

This is the Terracotta Army.

0:02:200:02:22

It was buried deep underground

secretly guarding the tomb

0:02:220:02:27

of China's first Emperor

for more than 2,000 years,

0:02:270:02:31

until it was discovered by accident

as farmers dug the land.

0:02:310:02:37

The tomb belonged to

Emperior Qin Shi Huang,

0:02:370:02:39

the founder of the Chinese empire,

who had many enemies.

0:02:390:02:42

He believed that these full-size

clay soldiers would protect him

0:02:420:02:44

in the next life after he died.

0:02:440:02:47

Now, they've been carefully brought

back to the surface and repaired

0:02:470:02:50

for everyone to see.

0:02:500:02:53

But you don't have to go all the way

to China to see them,

0:02:530:02:57

some of them are right

here in Liverpool.

0:02:570:02:59

So these kids have been

to check them out.

0:02:590:03:01

How long did it take to make

the terracotta warriors?

0:03:010:03:04

We don't know exactly

how long it took

0:03:040:03:12

to make one warrior

but, as you can see,

0:03:130:03:15

they are so detailed

and elaborate, I imagine

0:03:150:03:17

it would have taken quite some

time to make each one.

0:03:170:03:20

Each part of the body

was made separately,

0:03:200:03:22

so the legs and feet were made,

and they were solid clay.

0:03:220:03:25

Because they're so heavy, the base

of them had to be quite steady.

0:03:250:03:28

Who were the strongest warriors?

0:03:280:03:29

The warriors are all soldiers

who were ready to fight in battle,

0:03:290:03:32

but in another pit nearby

were figures that the emperor had

0:03:320:03:34

made to entertain him

in the afterlife, and in that pit

0:03:340:03:37

were acrobats and strongmen,

and the strongmen figures

0:03:370:03:39

had really big muscles,

so I imagine they were

0:03:390:03:41

meant to be very strong.

0:03:410:03:43

So, what do they make of the army?

0:03:430:03:45

I'm so amazed how big

the terracotta warriors are.

0:03:450:03:48

I like how they look

and they've got armour on,

0:03:480:03:50

they look really detailed.

0:03:500:03:53

When I imagined what they would look

like, I wasn't expecting them

0:03:530:03:56

to be a really big size.

0:03:560:03:58

I think it's actually really

impressive that they came from China

0:03:580:04:00

all the way to Liverpool and that

they're still in really

0:04:000:04:03

good shape and condition.

0:04:030:04:11

Thanks, guys.

0:04:110:04:13

And if you've ever wanted

to experience staying in space

0:04:130:04:16

but don't fancy the long rocket

flight, then check out

0:04:160:04:18

the 'Subspace' hostel in Croatia.

0:04:180:04:19

Croatia's first space capsule hotel

has just won an award for the best

0:04:190:04:22

hostel in Eastern Europe.

0:04:220:04:23

Guests get to feel like they're

on board a spaceship

0:04:230:04:25

with all the gadgets and gizmos

and of course the

0:04:250:04:28

cramped living space.

0:04:280:04:30

The tiny bedrooms are called

capsules, they're only two metres

0:04:300:04:33

long and are 1.2 metres

wide and high.

0:04:330:04:35

That's about the size

of your school desk,

0:04:350:04:37

but they manage to squeeze in a bed,

a monitor, a safe

0:04:370:04:40

and a mirror there.

0:04:400:04:48

There's no windows or natural light,

but you can see the stars

0:04:520:04:54

and planets painted on your ceiling.

0:04:540:04:56

So you can imagine you're flying

through space when in fact you've

0:04:560:04:59

not moved and cannot move further

than a few steps.

0:04:590:05:01
