9:06 am
office in two thousand and six was the deadliest year in his presidency when almost one hundred civilians were killed just by two strikes and two years later drones became much more frequently used and then barack obama became president in two thousand and nine and that was the year which saw the bloodiest number of killings the biggest i should say one hundred and sixty two in the next twelve months these trikes almost doubled and there were more than a hundred of them on the program goes on the latest attack in pakistan happened just over a month ago so we can see that the lion's share of drone strikes were carried out by the obama administration around one thousand civilians have been killed including two hundred children that the total number of deaths is more than three thousand people more details now from our lives account for that. the predator drone remotely controlled and heavily armed it's the weapon of choice in the cia's
9:07 am
under cleared war in pakistan that's where the u.s. is believed to have launched more than three hundred strikes since two thousand and four the target suspected taliban and al qaeda militants the white house says better drones then boots on the ground and justifies the covert program as both affective and legal america does not take strikes to punish individuals we act against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the american people not so according to amnesty international in a damning new report the human rights group warns u.s. drone strikes could amount to war crimes documents recent killings in pakistan's northwest tribal areas and the lack of transparency surrounding drones this is a secret program in fact in our case we've found at least in some cases they've clearly killed civilians and some of these cases might be war crimes that really concerns us one such case is that of sixty eight year old man nama bibi killed by a u.s.

drone last october she was picking vegetables with her grandchildren when that attacks took place a double strike the children miraculously survived. first it was so then i heard that. the first hit and the second hit my cousin. but her grandmother's body was pulverized these missile fragments are all that remain amnesty documents other such cases but its main point the need for transparency and accountability the u.s. must explain why these people have been killed people who are clearly civilians must provide justice to these people compensation it must investigate those responsible for those killings the u.s. continues to give very little public information about the drone program but it will face more international pressure later this week that is because on friday the u.n. general assembly will be done. bating the use of remotely piloted aircraft now in a separate report a un investigation looked at thirty three drone strikes around the world not just

in pakistan that violated international humanitarian law and also resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties that report also calling for more transparency and accountability from the united states reporting from moscow i am lucy catherine of and we're also spoke to the head of the drones report she says people in pakistan fear the unmanned aircraft the same way as they do the time ban and. what we have done it's conduct painstaking research into a specific time period in pakistan where u.s. has carried out drone strikes and that's a very recent eighteen months in a very particular part of the country in north waziristan this is one of the most neglected remote areas of the world. ordinary residents suffer abuse from armed groups also disappearances and torture obviously detention for the focused on and.

on top of that out of the skies. they are being attacked by u.s. drone strikes. in some cases that some of those some of the killings have been unlawful that amount to extradition executions or war crimes we contacted the u.s. government in advance of our report being published. referred us to cia referred us to the white house and the white house referred us to u.s. president barack obama's speech on may twenty third team which made promises of transparency we've seen little change to date. despite the outrage against the use of the unmanned aircraft washington refuses to acknowledge any unlawful killings that's why some experts are calling for an international investigation into drone strikes. the us has a consistent position in refusing to allow its highest officials whether political or military officials to be held accountable for the consequences of wars that are

themselves fundamentally violations of international law international law in the united states unfortunately is too often only applied to other countries and not to ourselves one of the big problems with the drone war is that we don't have good information it may be that there are war crimes involved if there are. decisions made to use drone strikes when other options are available if decisions are made to use drone strikes against settings where there are known civilians they may well be work crimes there needs to be a thorough investigation and what we've seen is that the u.s. government is not prepared to investigate itself so the question of international investigations whether it's in the context of the international criminal court to which of course the united states is not a member or whether it's in the context of amnesty international the united nations other agencies all of these need to be explored and used. they're watching all say and coming up to have their shoulder break america's homeless shelters fill up with

want to wear the niqab so norwegian authorities looking into this to try and track down these two women who are believed to be in turkey trying to cross the border into syria they say they have evidence that they've been spotted in that area security offices working with the norwegian security services are saying that we are seeing a growing trend in organized groups trying to to recruit and radicalize muslims muslim people in the in the west in europe and across europe we have seen cases where by anti assad fighters have turned up with with passports from across the european union norway itself believes that around forty of its citizens are currently fighting in the area one of the largest groups from europe that's made their way to fight against assad troops have been from right here in germany it's believed that in the north of syria there's a camp that's been labeled the german camp by newsmagazine around two hundred
9:16 am
german citizens most of them from the north rhine-westphalia area believed to be there the numbers while the numbers speak for themselves is believe that or over one thousand european fighters currently battling assad forces in syria right now and that's gone up from two hundred fifty from this time last year so if it does seem that if these these organized groups are recruiting that they're certainly getting more and more people to their cause. and as always got more stories online for you including journalists united as the ranking u.k. media representatives for a petition demanding the release of a british comer a man detained in russia i would have greenpeace oil rig protest in the arctic. the russian sibling of santa claus made the olympic flame on the latest stage of the torch relay read more on the sporting symbols voyage.

the e.u. the french leader is planning to push the issue of the european summit later this week you know makers have already bought new laws to protect one of the online information which would outlaw most data transfers to third countries including the u.s. and paul murphy and irish and we appreciate his view on the new regulations despise want to spoil a spy even though it already is a side of the law and it will make it more difficult though because what's happened in terms of the massive spying that's taken place so far that's been facilitated by major multinational corporations like facebook like google in contravention of any sense of the right to privacy the right to data protection and situations go through and i think they likely will the transfer of european data to all their authorities such as the u.s. authorities third country authorities will be made illegal i don't believe these spying operations are taking place in my interests in other people's interest in

art and or across europe or across the world and i think what's happening is is there's a whipping all of a hysteria an attempt to use that histeria to undermine the rights of people to privet see the rights of people to have their data protected. no fresh n.s.a. scandal has caused friction between historic allies and as american political cartoonist and columnist ted roll believes the damage could well be a long long stay it's pretty hard to under listening to tens of millions of phone calls isn't it at this point i think what shocking the french is there not just the extent to which the united states is spying on their people but also the fact that they consider themselves to be u.s. allies and if this is the way the us treats its friends well what's the point of being a friend this creates tension between two countries that like to think of themselves
9:20 am
as allies and it's third it's difficult for for the french to know exactly to what extent what they're doing is being listened to watched spied upon so you know it's hard to be friends with people you don't trust. let's now take a look at some other world news in brief a spanish court ordered abbas commissions to be freed after the european court of human rights ruled against her continued detention in estelle rio was captured in the late one nine hundred eighty s. and jailed for her role in twenty three martyrs under series of explosions carried out by the separatist group eta the european court decide its punish judges were violating the rights of the fifty five year old spanish authorities a subset of the ruling but warned that more than one hundred terrorists and killers could be released following today's precedent. to australia now where five teens are battling massive bushfires in the state of new south wales out

a message you see corrupt officials are usually cowards and they do what they do because they feel they can get away with it when you start to put the fear of god into them they start to behave much better so the question is will the mainstream media grab the story and really use the conviction of detroit's former mayor is an example probably not but it would really help the country if they would but that's just my opinion. mission free credit taishan free storage which is free. range was free. free. to free. download free books p.t.o. for your media projects free radio down to our tom. morris hello to you. and what's your name. since i was born i haven't been able to get all my body was slowly changing my
