Now relocated in Scotland, the family pleaded for help,
and against all the odds, a rescue mission was mounted
and Mohamed arrived in Scotland a few weeks ago.
TRANSLATION: The operation went a very secret way and no
information was revealed to us, just for his protection.
The lack of information made me sometimes worried,
sometimes concerned, but I always knew that it was going

The team was there to make sure the family was supported and no

We will probably never know how he was brought here to Midlothian

Others have only seen it on TV, Tommy Gemmill in 1967 scoring
in Celtic's European cup final victory, the first by a British
I am a Celtic fan through and through.
He was a fabulous player and look at the pride he brought a Glasgow.
When the time came to say farewell, the reaction was spontaneous,
the funeral cortege making the journey to the crematorium
where family, friends, former team-mates and rivals gathered.
Green blazered against the sombre backdrop, his fellow Lisbon Lions.
There have been many fine fullbacks who have worn the hoops
with distinction but undoubtedly the name of Tommy Gemmill
will be right up there with the best of them,
A tall, athletic full-back in his prime, a close friend
described his attitude as illness took its toll.
One of his favourite sayings was, why should
I didn't think there was anything left for Tommy Gemmill to do
I was in awe of his courage, strength and character.

The Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has claimed his party
now represents "majority opinion" on Scotland's future.
At the party's annual conference in Perth,
Mr Rennie said the LibDems were the only ones now giving full
support to Scotland's place in both the UK and the European Union.
From Perth, here's our political editor Brian Taylor.
Sharing this venue with the curlers, the Liberal Democrats reckon
they are entitled to make a bit of noise, too.
Liberal Democrats speak for the majority of people in Scotland.
We are pro-United Kingdom, but we also wanted to stay
62% of Scots want that, so we represent the majority
of public opinion, and our ambition is to get that high

reckons nationalism is well out of kilter.

How is that different from Nigel Farage wanting to take
Or even Donald Trump wanting to do deals, great deals,
Nick Clegg formally led the Lib Dems and is now
He told me of plans for a further EU referendum on the Brexit terms.
If the British people were to say, we don't want to jump off the cliff
and would rather stay on terra firma, clearly, it would then
be for us as a nation to decide whether we actually
after all want to stay in the European Union.

Only if the British people change their mind.
To be clear, a second referendum is roundly rejected

Party leaders believe they can remedy that in Scotland

Well, It's over to Christopher now with the weather outlook
Fairly cloudy and damp tonight with a band of rain moving in of the
Atlantic. This is the chart, the rain edging in across the mainland,
further south and east any wet weather is light and patchy but
fairly cloudy. Tomorrow morning, Saturday gets off to a cloudy start
but should improve because the Rome is clearing away towards the North
Sea. Behind it, a legacy of drizzle holding on. Brightening up across
the far north-west and for parts of Northern Ireland, the North of
England, Wales and the south-west, cloudy and in the south and East
some sunshine, 16 to 18 Celsius. Nothing quite that high here but
nine or 11 Celsius covers it in the south, quite murky at times, the
central belt cloudy, clouding up for Edinburgh. Best of the sunshine in
the north, like wind, 13, 14 Celsius. Perhaps stilts Shari
Shetland. The rest of the afternoon, evening and overnight, mist and murk
on the hills and wet weather edging in across the south. Another weather
front on the Atlantic so Sunday starts cloudy, damp and drizzly. The
rain edges in eastwards through the day and then brightening up so by
the afternoon some sunshine coming in across western Scotland, further
east a few showers but both days it is the afternoon that will fare best
in terms of anything dry and bright. From everyone on the late
team - goodnight. Let's Sing And Dance exploded onto
