and government forces say they've taken control of the two towns will sort of how do you and. in the eastern there are countries videos like this one purport to show troops may. many of whom are believed to be iranian backed militia members intrigue was sort of how do you on tuesday the town has come under heavy bombardment and its capture is the first major government advance in this offensive that will allow the syrian army to advance more southwards thought of that i'll bet at the city of that i take it i think that connecting. with that and occupying the valleys of allies that the which way are full of. groups from a guy that forget that the group that will allow the syrian army to advance fast that i first thought of towards the city of that out. by cutting off
4:08 pm
a key rebel supply line in a province more pro-government troops will be able to move in retaking the entire province of that i would give the government control over its border with jordan all the way to the israeli occupied golan heights. and in the extremely complicated terrain of syria's war analysts believe deals have already been made i believe that if. the americans that we have a good deal with the russians now they are out of this of this of this and the city of beijing will take control of that will be good for everybody for the russians for jordan because jordan also although the jordanians actually pretty concerned about any new influx of refugees inside jordan but they want very much action to open the border crossing with syria because economically this is a body until i fly in port the jordanian economy according to the united nations forty five thousand people have so far fled the violence and headed toward the

4:10 pm
a meeting with president xi jinping earlier this year matters called china's rapidly expanding military power a big a national security threat then terrorism alive now to beijing where i'm joined by adrian brown talk us through mattis is concerns considering the growing strains at the moment. that's right this is a complicated relationship jane but it's also a relationship that's in a lot of trouble of the moment overshadowing matters his visit here to beijing his first as defense secretary is of course the deepening trade friction between china and the united states and it's going to be very difficult i think for the united states to expect any sort of cooperation from china right now while the trade issue remains unresolved now mattis is here with his main concern being what is happening in the south china sea the united states believes china is guilty of militarization
4:11 pm
of this vast basin of water and of course united states in the past has cited the fact that china has been deploying surface to air missiles on many of the islands it's been building in this area now the chinese respond by saying the united states is is over hyping this issue they say that what they're doing is simply installing missiles for defensive measures these islands belong to china therefore because china claims sovereignty over almost the entire south china sea china is entitle to do what it wants but the problem is that tensions have really ratcheted up during the past few months the united states has been conducting what it calls a freedom of navigation operations in the south china sea this means that the u.s. warships are coming very close to those chinese islands and the chinese regard the u.s. action as a deliberate provocation and you know just in april china held really its
4:12 pm
largest ever naval parade involving dozens of warships as well as its new aircraft carrier and that was another powerful indorsement of chinese sovereignty of the south china sea thank you for that ed and ron. an unmanned japanese spacecraft has arrived at an asteroid where it will not attempt to take samples the higher both the two craft took off three and a half years ago the asteroid is around two hundred eighty million kilometers from earth from september illit to undertake three landings where it will blow craters in the rock to collect samples if the return journey is a success it could help provide clues about the origin of the solar system ares jones is a space and listen north of when men walk on the moon and he joins us from sydney good to have you with us it sounds pretty exciting doesn't a long time to get there what's going to happen now. what's going to happen now is a very slow pace of sit back study the asteroid from
4:13 pm
a distance take photographs and try to pick an appropriate place to land and take the samples how challenging will that be it's very challenging because the asteroid is very irregular in shape and it's to write in and it's partly a question of finding a safe place to land but it's also a question of saying well which type of to write in which type of service and which type of materials do you want to sample for the returns who would win so there's always a bit of a conflict between what the scientists want in terms of this samples and what the engineers want in terms of policy in the spacecraft and you know it's really jumping in right now about exactly where it should be done ok what do we know about asteroids at the moment i mean what can they give us what sort of danger to they propose to it would pose rather to considering that they can hit us contact.
4:14 pm
well as stories such as the one that high abusive who is visiting do have the potential to endanger life on earth if they get too close and crash into the it we all know that the dinosaurs and much of the life on earth was exterminated about sixty five million years ago by a very large asteroid impact and we do know that several asteroids do make close approaches from time to time to the us and so studying near earth asteroids is helping us to understand the composition and also how we could deflect them or possibly defend the earth through out the methods against an impact in the future and the fact it's unmanned how significant is that. well this asteroid is a very long way into space and at that sort of
4:15 pm
a distance it's the would either be very difficult or next to impossible to send astronauts on a mission like that with the technology we have at the present and it's a question of not just fuel and oxygen but just the physical injury and so on the crew right now a deep space mission like this is only possible with the robot spacecraft but most parents thank you very much. a british appeal court judges ruled because stay on the road in london at least for now the ride sharing company lost its operating license last september because of safety concerns over in and has more. as a business is a global disruptor turning the traditional taxi profession upside down and provoking protests bans and restrictions as it does it the company is now valued at more than seventy billion dollars and after starting with just three hundred u.k. drivers in two thousand and twelve now has sixty thousand u.k.

4:21 pm
you stand the differences. and the same analogies and cultures across the world. al-jazeera. facebook on the defensive again it now says no european news is data was shared in the privacy scandal which is the reverse of what it said before so why the flip and will it change anyone's mind this is inside story. i welcome to the program i'm peter dobby now facebook says no european uses
4:22 pm
information may have been shared with the u.k. for at the center of the privacy scandal after all but at the hearing the social media networks executives that they still had to conduct an internal audit to confirm that facebook had previously said data from up to two point seven million users had been improperly shared with cambridge analytical that's the first reportedly hired to influence britain's breaks that referendum and the u.s. election campaign that saw donald trump getting into the white house the facebook founder mark zuckerberg has apologized and pledged to apply new european data protection rules globally but has that happened yet well that's the key question for our guests in just a moment before we get to the discussion here's a reminder of how the facebook scandal unfolded on march the seventeenth millions of facebook users woke up to the news that their personal information had been acquired by the data company cambridge analytical the revelations coming from the coast. the u.k. based company
4:23 pm
a man called christopher wiley the dates it was reportedly sold to cambridge analytical and used for political purposes linked to the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election campaign and also the brics it campaign the company said the data was destroyed in twenty fifteen but there were reports not all of it was actually deleted facebook then confirmed that up to eighty seven million users details may have been improperly shared it also goes back to twenty fourteen when two hundred seventy thousand users took an online personality survey via a third party quiz this gave access not only to their facebook information but to that of their friends facebook says it was a violation of company policy ok let's get going let's bring in our guest joining us here on inside story from palo alto california on skype is laurie majid c.e.o. of connect safely dot org that's an internet safety and privacy and security organization in london is sense esprit senior lecturer in the department of
4:24 pm
informatics at king's college london and joining us from brussels on skype even a member of the european parliament and the chair of the parliament science and technology options assessment a warm welcome to you all let's just talk to you first innocence us tree in london what does this mean for the people who thought their data had been accessed well that basically means that there are there are details have not been doing deals to some company so it's good news for these people but it's not so good news still for the u.s. citizens and others whose data has been leaked to. and in california does this mean that people trust facebook less or more than they did back in may when the scandal broke. i doubt if it has much impact on people trust their facebook and it was said it's good that europe may not have been impacted in the
4:25 pm
way the us was but it's still a big issue in the u.s. and i must say that the victim of their not just those who the information with taken but everybody who believes in democracy who they vote may not have been counted in the way or maybe that counted but who in the lection outcomes may have been influenced by the result of this and other campaigns even kylie in brussels the scope of the g.d.p. all it does that go far enough because that basically means that people that you click on except with they have to tell you they have to confess and say no your information will or will not go to other people. let me say that least e.p.r.i. maybe we should have been faster but the staff and the skin create some global standards on how we treat data so that means people citizens have not the option to control the state that they can take them away they can ask for transparency with
4:26 pm
what is happening we through data and basically make it too much they should deny or allow access the data so i think giving them back control is the first thing that happens but because the vision is happening we. have to be asked to us more requirements more options to cease to be able to understand who the stuff. we're saying is if you think that we made of course the consequence is even worse think that's even a grandsire to understand that there is a media. knowledge base but they don't understand more or less those or they don't know exactly what the data has and how they can use them or work to prove that we have nations coming about and think the main purposes. ok larry
4:27 pm
magid back in california facebook is promising an internal audit what are the key questions for you that has to address. well i think that the main question is are there systems in place today that could prevent this type of thing from happening again have they tightened up sufficiently the access that their third party developers have to the data and also have they increased their own surveillance techniques and by surveillance i don't mean spying on people but the ability to in fact surveil the apps that they know that the things can't happen again so they have to have very robust systems with their software in their service to prevent these types of things from happening in the future and this ancestry in london i mean people uses and politicians they were frustrated i guess by the reality of the revelations but also by facebook's reaction to all the people's reaction to the revelation shortly. yeah so i guess the part of the
4:28 pm
predicament is that we have all started to use facebook and such and it's embedded in such deep place in our daily lives that the feel as if we are betrayed by these kind of revelations that somebody that you trusted with sort of the basic bits of your life has now given away that data to someone else now so it should be very clear that facebook has been tightening up and has cleaned up for itself in quite significant ways but it still feels as though they could be doing a little bit more it also feels like they have already given of a some amount of data and that's part of the frustration and i think this is this is also is in some ways the normal in the sense that the technology is evolving very fast as they were saying and in many of the tech companies are
4:29 pm
putting up new functionalities before completely allies ing what the consequences of these are and so it's a consequence of the of the evolving landscape that we have here even is that part of the problem in your last answer you were talking about more legislation still to come but unless the legislation chimes perfectly with where the technology is going people like yourself the european i mean you're always going to be playing catch up . well that's true but you listen because of the you know nation cannot follow the rules you know vision takes place by thinking as the books so we have to move fast but speaking faster because then we can see the innovation what i can say is that you know there's not a company we have to make sure the future understand their perceptions can be funny should be eighty five thing you see so this is not about to use the hook and the c.c.c. if you see a lot of people in this county condon this could change or lose this could affect
4:30 pm
your options and you choices and lets you educate people to understand less the t.v. and make so that by the fourth day newspeak is not being manipulated you know that the sun gets the size and that's a suburban the legion of you please begin the sensory information that sexualization that i think we're going to see left behind because we haven't understood exactly identified the main problem which was a manipulation of the suggestions to create an uncertainty and you need to vote. for an understanding of the war. some. different phones and i think that's why i mentioned. we should understand the technology and try and set up the right there in order to see who called to the citizens and allow them to use the application but not all of their use their state does to make sense and that
4:31 pm
needs to nations we need to i think underscore that we will be successes affect them larry magid in california it would appear to me that these two point seven million europeans are safe they are home and dry when it comes to the data what they will how they will react to say advertising how they were react to echo chamber conversations but that's just two point seven million europeans there are surely other europeans. who were in the united states say when this was all going on so how do you come up with global legislation such as the legislation that eva is involved with to make everyone that uses facebook as safe as these two point seven million europeans. well first of all i want to make a general comment about legislation i certainly agree with the con common even made about principles but it's very difficult for regulators to micromanage companies
4:32 pm
what we need are principles that can last for potentially decades about privacy and security that are independent of the specific technology because technology will change very quickly but general principles can can last for a long time as per global regulations well the good news is that the g.d.p. are even though it only affects europe actually it having an impact of global a because some of these companies at least are trying to apply g.d.p. are on an international level because it's actually easier for them to have one set of rules for the entire population and to have to break it down country by country and the famous true for example with the children's online privacy protection act in the united states it doesn't affect directly any other country but most of the internet service providers have complied complied with it globally so i think that we're all benefiting through g.d.p. are but having said that i know there will continue to be discussions in washington about way the u.s. can tighten our privacy laws that's inevitable i think mark zuckerberg realizes
4:33 pm
that his goal i think is to try to make it so it it doesn't hurt his business but they all know it's coming and i think europe set the pace for the entire world in a sense it may sound like a slightly idiotic question but is there anything that one can do to make oneself safe for him when the scandal broke one point eight million australians deleted their accounts but off the back of that we discovered that sixty six percent of facebook users don't know how to set their previously settings and if you look at the facebook screen even if you want to log off your account eva's noting she's able to go through the same process if you want to log off your account you have to go to that small triangle top right hand side and if your on your i pad or your i phone it's difficult to see maybe sleeve yourself loek in even more at the end of the day. mysa wants you to be logged in for as long as possible because facebook is a multi-billion dollar company and he wants to monetize you a use as
4:34 pm
a resource. sure i mean so just to the last point about well as being the product that is certainly the case today and with legislation such as g.d.p. or and other things that that proposition is sort of drying up a little traces of it presumably in the near future we're going to start seeing new business models for new internet companies or even for old internet companies to be made themselves such that we are not the product but rather the service they're offering is the product as it should be but a going back again to what you're saying yes it is extremely difficult today for even well informed users so one of the things that i've been trying to do since g.d.p. is every new web say that i was it i make sure to see what their policies and what kind of cookies are they storing on me and so forth this is information that i could have figured out before but was not so easy to figure out before and now
4:35 pm
a new sort of a pop up comes up for me that says are you ok that i'm collecting such and such cookies and i go through and figure out what the cookies are and it is a tedious process it's actually affecting my work because i'm no longer able to browse in the same way same seamless way that i used to before so even with things like consent that doesn't necessarily go far enough in preserving the same kind of browsing experience that we used before and again so this is this is because of the advertising based business model that we have and it's also because with social platforms it becomes even more difficult to think about what does privacy mean so if i gave access to the world to see effort a graph of me and my friends would my friends who happened to be in the picture be ok with that how do they prevent that from happening if they're not ok with that
4:36 pm
this are difficult thorny questions. and somehow the governor then have to figure out ways that around this and we are they are going forward but are not quick enough ok even early in brussels i mean still surely is the case facebook doesn't seem to want to admit or concede what it actually is it is not some some organization of the vanguard of freedom is it a news organization is it a broadcaster is it i've used the phrase before on the show an echo chamber for people's your friends opinions and you know other broadcasters other publishers are monitored people do monitor them because they've got to because there are legal issues to do with that and yet facebook wants to still be above all that perhaps. when on the legislation for such a slot firms and their responsibilities to see this is especially is now in the opinion unions so i'm going to work on these five and i will try to make sure those
4:37 pm
that are a few cities in the state and the average stand how. the source of business is to be able to u.c.s.b. cation but to be subpoenaed and that's when i think you can see i was in court because you mention these cannot speak the old definition of what facebook and other. something new i was i would like to see is different so this is actually and we have the only nation to what the also so maybe as i said we have to make sure that we. must friends in the nation. for every month of the for some of the this is for the first spending that we have to make so this year and that you have many options to be able to say yes i want you can. i can use any movies but they were to use it but the rest of my day. than you because i use
4:38 pm
it for food or science or hands or send them to you know you can access without my knowledge and funds and so i also gave them the night access to so suck you in for somebody and if you do so call me maybe you excuse it and then even one screaming and even the lies so basically we have to suffer specific who should we send them. a sense of peace and privacy and not speak and then to give more options to the cities and. towns are a few for the loose lunch we are sure and certain but we too so for me. to do and since there is no board or something then that lets you. so you can be are if you want to warn you of and those that become but actually do want to hear they have to comply we have the right people gone and we have the right information
4:39 pm
we have the right to privacy as we have to find this new balance between the rights that we have so it's an ongoing process meaning we have to learn from what happened and make sure that people we not be manipulated especially incensed like political decisions and legion understood understood and i just want to boil that point done for a second to put that in california larry clearly the essence of what we're discussing here when it comes to these two point seven million people in europe is pushback but how do you strike the balance i mean is faintly ridiculous because for example the chicago tribune website it's a perfectly reputable newspaper website you can't see it in europe then you put up a v.p.n. and you can see it in europe i mean how does that work. well first of all and i've been to facebook safety advisory board for a number of years right so far and these conversations come up all the time and i
4:40 pm
just want to make it clear that often it's nuanced for example i agree that there should be a lot of privacy controls but the more private they control the ad the more complicated they become so that there is a tradeoff between simplicity and control and i'm not suggesting that facebook couldn't do a better job i know they could but but these are things that facebook and their advisers have been struggling with for years i also want to point out that consumer education is critical you can have the safest platform in the world but if people aren't using it in a safe way then their information is going to be a getting into the wrong hands because ultimately social media is about sharing and the question isn't whether we share information i wouldn't have any use for facebook if i weren't using it to reach out to my friends and share information the question of how do we keep control over our information yet still have the ability to share it and with that freedom to share means we have the freedom to go too far if we're not careful so it's a it's a balance their government has a role obviously industry has a role but the rest of it have
4:41 pm
a role and that's where i think consumer education is so important. in london using social media and trusting it without question of those days now gone. i think you'll find that there are people who have very very different conceptions of what privacy means and what play with the means to them there are still a number of people who don't care that much about privacy and oftentimes the argument that here are being made is i don't have anything to hide so why do i need to care about privacy there are others who are privacy extremists and whom i. go to great lengths to keep themselves private from from from these big huge companies like so given the specs some of the friend kinds of users that there are there's not going to be a single right balance and which is why you need users to have more control over exactly what how their data being stored and what are the services that are being
4:42 pm
