marathon bomber. and unsolved two thousand and eleven triple murder that took place in boston now at the time of the shooting up to half a dozen law enforcement officials including two massachusetts state police troopers and an f.b.i. agent from the agency's boston division were present at the florida condo which was not far from universal studios but the f.b.i. has provided few details after the shooting saying that the matter is being investigated by a specific f.b.i. review team and the f.b.i. may not finish its probe for several months now news is coming out that this man was on arms so where does this leave the initial story that the f.b.i. presented to the public now the f.b.i. meanwhile has been under enormous scrutiny for missing several warnings about tomorrow on the biggest warnings coming from a russian intelligence officials years ago indicating that may have links to
2:03 am
extremist groups the f.b.i. for whatever reasons did not follow up and probe the matter to the fullest extent and that some would say led to the execution of the boston marathon double bombings and now we have this development unfolding where our man that was shot and killed by f.b.i. agents turns out according to the washington post to have been on the arm so clearly the f.b.i. is going to have a lot of. questions to answer in the coming days with these new developments on this story. our g. has been covering this case and the controversy surrounding it from the outset and we've got all the details as well as our interview with the father of the man who was killed on our web site r.t. dot com. to the u.k. now where one of the alleged machete killers who had to be british soldier to death
2:04 am
on a london street has been officially charged with murder michael adebowale who will appear in court in late on thursday the gruesome killing has added to the anti muslim and to immigrant sentiments in the country and authorities are now increasingly under fire for dumping the race and religion factor in crimes and a tory assaults with six grooming ring case being one of the most recent examples are to support you boycott explains. across the country many have been shocked at the uncovered sexual exploitation rings first in rochdale then brother and darby and most recently in oxford gangs of men vulnerable young girls some as young as ten with presence in order to gain their trust then they force them to take drugs rape them and finally they sell them off into prostitution they reported gangs are made up of muslim men their victims young white girls so the government choosing to ignore obvious marcuse when it comes to these horrific crimes race and religion to talk about the issue i'm joined by sean thomas he's
2:05 am
a writer and journalist shawn you've written about the case in oxford is there an elephant in the room is the government choosing to shy away from making a connection between these men's religion and their white victims i think unquestionably yes in the past there is some evidence that these crimes have been going on since the early one nine hundred ninety s. if not before. additionally a labor m.p. and cryer raised the issue maybe ten or fifteen years ago and of course in the tourist league the head of the british national party a far right politician raised it in one thousand in two thousand and one and in two thousand and four i want it was right in two thousand and four it was a subject of a secret b.b.c. documentary and the reaction of the of the political and legal establishment to nick griffin enough for a politician raising the issue was to try and silence him not to investigate the crimes that he regarded as being an ethnocentric if not racist politician but but they did what they ignored everything he said and instead tried to soften his point
2:06 am
of view and so the crimes went on for another five or six years at least before they originally were they became finally revealed in the last two to three years you've also mentioned in your writing that it was a muslim prosecutor driving the sentencing in the oxford case do you think anybody who is known muslim feared being branded a racist if they look too closely at the case the fact that it took a muslim prosecutor in the north west of england to finally cut through the. yes there was a problem it showed that that what prosecutors what social workers what legal offices and what politicians were very wary of addressing the issue because they are all terrified of being associated with the b.n.p. with the far right of being seen as racist it can it can ruin careers if you get that label and yet the government hasn't taken this up as an issue you think it's too dangerous a can of worms to open yes completely and in fact to be fair to the government the police forces they are now in fact tackling this crime pretty damn seriously i was reading a report the other day were said there were no fifty four ongoing investigations into into separate asian grooming gangs around the u.k.
2:07 am
but in itself that is an astonishing figure that's fifty four gangs and each of these gangs may have dozens or even hundreds of victims so we are talking about possibly. girls who've been abused raped and even possibly murdered in the last twenty years because this crime was ignored i mean it is very shocking we have to accept that yes what people can also be victims of racial crimes and i'd say these girls were such victims and thomas many thanks for your comments there you have it the muslim council of britain is going to dedicate their next meeting to talking about how they can stamp out such cases of abuse but we're yet to hear anything from the government on the issue. artsy london we've also talked to dr hajim ahmad the oxford islamic congregation who says the current situation is primarily hurting muslims in the u.k. themselves. clearly it's a very fraught time very tense time and i think you know we muslims have actually given the gun given the bullet to groups like the b.n.p.
2:08 am
and the these a far right fascist groups and tell them shoot us but we provide them with the ammunition by but by engaging in mindless target in terrorism and then also by targeting white girls that simply doesn't in india us to the majority population to muslims have to take some responsibility but we also have to admit that there are folks out there who take advantage of the of the situation multiculturalism has failed in this society and what is multiculturalism do it keep communities apart in a bubble so they didn't actually mix the state apart from from each other and what we need is an integrated society and the cultural rather than a multicultural society where each culture mixes with others at the moment we have places like luton or leeds so leicester whatever with actually muslim ghetto people living in sort of apartheid like residential neighborhoods never meeting other people and i think this is only reinforces in the reentering just this dichotomy between them and us will bringing you more pinions on this sunday out of
2:09 am
a controversial story throughout the day online and on am well pinions a very telling tension is leading to why population shrinking in some parts of the u.k. including the british capital r.t. surfeit has more on the exodus and what else might be behind it. london. a multicultural hub known for its thriving diversity spanning the centuries but research by social think tank doubles reveals that while london remains is fighting to serve a it's perhaps not as integrated as some people might think i think you can say most of the successful city people celebrate for example london is a great multicultural city. longdon has experienced a huge amount of white flight. income people mainly in the outer suburbs leaving london because they think it's
2:10 am
changed too fast for one of these people is jane kelly having lived in london most of her adult life she seemed first hand the cultural shift is now looking to me for house she fills the area she lives in it's lost all sense of community all people i knew when i moved in here have gone they've all moved away. now mostly flats with very transitory population but perhaps surprisingly it seems many of the older generation of migrants who live around here and has settled and built up businesses agree that integration is not working is whether that maybe should be ethnic cultural diversity in london it's part of what makes land rights groups so why do you think we're seeing a little too close to the problems the right to be on his resume is it's foreign people more or less these european people they just interested to do a short journey make their money and then run off the country and there's no
2:11 am
investment in very very return to their country there's nothing to rebuild the country is only for themselves to make money and that's you know that's what i'm here for i mean i've been to this country when i was like twenty three years old now i'm forty three years old so i'm investing business i'm doing so many things in this country paying into. by going to the contrary. that's the way it has to go in london white brits now make up just forty five percent of the capital's total population in some boroughs the shift has been dramatic in two thousand and one and more than eighty percent of people in barking and dagenham in the east of london while white british decade on and they're in the minority just forty nine percent we're here at one of london's busiest train stations and in the working week a commuter hub over the course of a decade in london stories white british population for a moment six hundred thousand people lost in the commuter towns on the outskirts of the populations become more ethnically mixed so you know that white points are
2:12 am
leaving london behind the question is why i want to thank tiffany is having on the local community they've left behind well the diversity which is very nice in any city. but when the diversity becomes so extreme that you have. balkanized groups but. traditional communities all the traditional communities around completely newcomers newcomers keep rolling in it has a very alienating effect what's been seen across the cape for a long time has been most acute in london but the figures aren't the full story avoiding ethnic communities does play a role in so-called white flight but evidence shows that race may not be the main driver other important factors such as class an economic status a key to the migration and ignoring the misinterpret people's complexity when it comes to reasons they're leaving london i think the main thing about that white
2:13 am
flight reminds us of is that there is a problem the mistake it makes the problem is just about ethnicity it's not it's about age and it's about mixing between people of different incomes and we need to address all these things together there are now concerns britain could see yet another immigration surge. at the end of this year when some twenty one million romanians and seven million both guerin's free to travel and what across the e.u. only a fraction of those a full cost to actually come here the previous immigration under-estimates coupled with white british relocation a changing the face of london's ethnic makeup without much understanding what the full ramifications of that might be. some of us see london. still ahead for you this hour the drash full price of austerity we'll look at how growing unemployment along with the ever more expensive medical services affects the infant mortality rate. plus

mortality has to do with a lot of access to medical services people without papers. are fused into medical services because they have not the right papers it takes a lot of time to have these papers to have access and so on i was part of a lot of pressure on the doctors and on the administration in general to not accept people who. prove to take on pain in light of increasing unemployment the talk of the so-called a lost generation of young people without jobs the increasing wealth gap among citizens this is yet another problematic aspect of the social fabric of europe that the leaders will have to find a solution to reporting from brussels i'm just are cilia. to some other international news in brief now a u.s. army soldier will be guilty to killing civilians in afghanistan in a deal to avoid the death penalty and staff sergeant robert bales will have to go into details of his rampage last year final sentencing is set to be announced in

2:27 am
is an attack from multiple fronts antibiotics are often overused in cattle which can and eventually said they will lead to anti biotics resistant bacteria evolving animals are also injected with various hormones which can make their way into our stomachs and speaking of mysterious things getting into our body pretty much any crops and you we are doused with all sorts of pesticides and sit on top of powerful fertilizers which can affect bodies of water far beyond the fence of the farm obviously technology has been and should be used in farming so we all don't starve i get why pesticides exist and why they start giving diseased animals antibiotics but there comes a point where out putting a lot of poisonous food will kill you just as dead as slowly starving will there is a healthy middle ground out there somewhere but if we only worry about just the g m o's and only won that battle then we'll still be eating food loaded with bad stuff just other bad stuff but that's just my opinion.
