if you're just joining us welcome to the program here on our. world headlines. a shake up of europe's asylum policies because it's struggling to deal with. immigrants things have just gotten worse over the last several years as large numbers of refugees conflicts in the middle east and north africa some of which were fueled by italy's more hawkish colleagues now more than. risking their lives many never making it and italy and greece are among the most affected putting pressure on their already burdened economies let's bring us the numbers for you to give you a broader scope of exactly what we're talking about. the official stats suggest
that migrants from outside the e.u. amounts are more than twenty million and in italy every twentieth man is a registered immigrant in greece though the numbers even higher at more than seven percent of the population and the number of asylum applications in italy has increased by more than one hundred percent well just since passed to the compared to last year greece only second to germany when it comes to the highest number of pending applications and let's get some more details on the problem right now offering some insight for us is our tease you go to prison off. they want to buy food from if your puter saddam than traveled to libya and finally reached sicily after what must have been the most nerve wrecking ball right of their lives these three women are hiding their faces from the camera since now they're risking being sent back when we were at sea now the boat with the refugees sank into a three hundred people died but we were lucky and in sicily we managed to void get it registered it's illegal between need to go further north there is nothing for us
here under e.u. regulation all newcomers must seek asylum in the country where they are right and under italian law anyone of voiding registration is sent home but nowadays more and more newcomers are ready to take their chances don't register to try to go to northern states where there are more opportunities with you probably when you arrive here they give you the very minimum there is no jobs no school and you sleep in the streets for six months italy is one of the worst european states in this regard youth unemployment has exceeded forty percent while the economy is in the worst recession since the second world war and international obligations and plane human principles can't allow it only to turn away refugees since for many it's the only chance for survival but the situation is now which to a point when this duty has become too heavy for it to handle on its own the e.u. has pledged italy would receive an additional thirty million euro or just over forty million dollars to deal with the refugee crisis but how will this help to distribute the more evenly throughout the union and integrate them into the economy
is not clear they have been so on ideas so far the sherry they may be some positive . and i see embodies a lot of. good hope but no concrete ideas and as governments and international organizations brainstorm the solution one thing is certain the flow of refugees is only going to continue you've got this kind of italy. the fight against police brutality has seen protesters come out across america rallies against the heavy arm of the law were held in a vast number of cities. and i.c.'s chuck and i went to one of them to find out just why the people there are so angry. in new york and dozens of other cities across the u.s. a national day of protest to stop police brutality repression and the criminalization of a generation this is a time which lends a second marks the eighteenth time these people gather for the simple message this
is not a judge in the how they treat us they shoot us like animals and that's completely unwarranted is literally on warranted when something breaks through like trayvon martin. lee graham or sean bell it gets treated in the media like this is a isolated incident something that rarely happens and then more often it's not reported at all organizers have been documented cases of what they call the stole lives project they say just over the last two decades thousands of killings have taken place by the hand of police officers they say the majority of these cases have been under reported or brushed aside hundreds every year were killed by the police that the majority of them were unarmed and not involved in any criminal activity when they were killed and also the majority of them were young and either black or latino in the mass media is a very good propaganda saw a lot of people are under the impression that people are being stopped and frisked
who are being gunned somehow criminal one of the major concerns for these protesters seems to be the lack of accountability when it comes to gun violence police brutality and even killings that occur under the hands of law enforcement they see the justice system continues to neglect these cases of violence thus not doing anything to improve the system and bring about real change you have to go through hell and high water just to get a conviction of the officer and what he's convicted for doesn't meet the crime to he's accused any winds up if not being found guilty even if he's convicted he gets out on good behavior after serving minimal time activists and families of victims called police who were talent in the u.s. a path. considering the united states lectures the rest of the world on human rights it's time. and i think it's coming to life. and it's most useful friend in the middle east are
going through a bit of a tough patch saudi arabia says it's reconsidering its partnership after the u.s. failed to strike syria and then talks with iran. playing the drama saying it's all a bunch of. human rights groups condemned the fifteen year sentence for an activist who criticized the regime. so good to have you with us today a roadside service has been held in volgograd in memory of the six victims of a suicide bombing on monday and more than forty others wounded doctors some of them still fighting to save the lives of those who were critically hurt. managed to piece together what happened on that day from the very unassuming start to the horrifying it. october twenty first started just like any other monday here in boca gras people woke up with places to go and things to get done heavily using bus
stations just like this but for several people needing bus number twenty nine they could never have foreseen how quickly their lives would change when they took that ride. the route ran without incident from morning till afternoon until one person got on board thirty year old why you don't see all of that is when things took a tragic turn and a start to the very on a boy was on her way home from classes at the university laughing and talking with the other students crucially it was in the middle of the bus which say trade life. when the boss hid everything around me when flying and from that moment i don't remember anything on the recall being thrown onto her window then suddenly finding myself on the street and in a panic i realised something had happened to my hands i was covered in blood. it was right here at about two pm local time that a blast ripped through bus twenty nine filled with about forty people first
responders thought it was perhaps a malfunction of the buses fuel systems but aside from the shop they felt to ask themselves if this was a gas explosion what was the fire. and exactly that was the safety record in the car everybody in the blast was touching their faces and heads asking what happened what happened there was a lot of blood on them and a lot of flesh everywhere i was very afraid i got out of my car and i saw the head lying there i mean my friend took a young boy and his father to the hospital the remnant of an explosive device told the shrapnel t.n.t. and a grenade the accident site became a crime scene while edgy hottest from republic of dagestan became the central focus of the investigation and then the story took another twist the attack wasn't meant for volgograd at all bessie oliver had apparently taken a detour. she had purchased
a ticket to moscow and boarded an intercity boss that passed through volgograd when the bus was almost at the city limits i see all of our gado and went back to downtown belgrade right now investigators are trying to find out whether this move had been planned in advance or are altered the plan along the way looking for a place packed with as many people as possible also under suspicion are three men believed to have helped in the plot to attack the russian capital two from dagestan wanted for twin terror attacks there in two thousand and twelve were said to be waiting for her in moscow on his way there was a c. all of us has been to meet her circle of an ethnic russian convert to islam missing since two thousand and twelve some reports suggest the couple had an argument shortly before the attack which may have caused a last minute change in her deadly plans authorities will be keen to find her husband in the hope he may have the answers lindsey france r.t. in volgograd it is well known terrorists plot their attacks hidden away in small
clusters called cells terrorism nowadays could be changing with criminals openly engaging in society and using social media to raise their money these polls scott while the report that we don't even know what happened please help us. well this is the russian t.v. program called wait for me it's june two thousand and thirteen and a distraught mother is making an appeal for information for the return of her missing son who's been missing for around a year now it's the type of appeal that's been at hundreds of times before over the years and at first glance nothing appears to be out of the ordinary and likewise this appeal in a russian social networking site doesn't appear to be out of the ordinary it's an appeal for funds so that a friend can receive medical treatment for an incurable disease well the friend turned out to be naive to ask the suicide bomber who carried out monday's volgograd
bus bombing the son turned out to be dimitri circle of an explosives expert wanted by the authorities and living on the run having converted to islam a married couple headed to dagestan after meeting at a moscow university also received believe that at the very same time these appeals were being made public plans for monday's volgograd bus bombing were being hatched and those who donated rubles to help a sick woman or phoned in information to help a distressed mother later discovered that those capable of carrying out such atrocities don't always shun mainstream society and in some cases play an active part in it. are on the website right now we've got those our witness accounts or the dash cam footage and a lot more on the alleged perpetrators and also see the suicide bombers bus ticket which she apparently was planning to use to get all the way here to moscow. are still to come on the program on our revelations of the sheer scale of n.s.a. spying in france now has the country's politicians they're in
a state of shock. if we are going. to go and that's another report exposes the u.s. surveillance of the united nations and the unleashing of a swarm of spyware and diplomatic computer. on the gifts that keep on giving young women in the u.k. a specialized online dating site so all in the hope that older men. money that's just ahead. serious last chances are the dates for the geneva conference are being arranged the assad regime may sit across from an empty chair syria's rebel opposition is on the ground or hopelessly divided the syrian political opposition in exile is divorced from the brutality on the battlefield so what can geneva two point zero hope to

for a difficult break up saudi arabia's ruling family is upset with changes to u.s. foreign policy and the worst case scenario for washington could be a disruption to oil supplies are the white house officials insist the rao is no big deal when i saw you can explain they've been wrong before. saudi arabia hates the fact that the u.s. didn't bomb syria saudi arabia did everything possible to make it happen and it didn't saudi arabia hates iran and any mentioning of a possible nuclear deal between the us and iran and washington and tehran are far from any deal really but even the talk irritates saudi arabia so saudi arabia decided to go public with all that invitation the saudi prince bandar bin sultan said there will be quote a major shift away from the u.s. and that it will affect arms purchases and oil sales and most recently citing a protest against the us saudi arabia refused the seat at the u.n.
security council so could an ally be turning into a follow i spoke with professor daoud. the u.s. has invested a lot in the relationship with saudi arabia and now saudi arabia is rightly the us i mean talking minds and all we hear is this alliance going well. by supporting saudi arabia saudi arabia and many of the gulf countries are probably the most undemocratic the most corrupt and they are really a liability and they have contributed to the sense of alienation between the. world so for saudi arabia specially mr bundy to take this position is a little bit astonishing. but i think i don't think that there will be a total disconnect but if there will be one it would be in the best interest of the
. whole. the u.s. would not be associated with a country that is regenerate of terrorism it will not be associated with a leader like but who is. playing a major role in the bloody war going on and supporting terrorists the u.s. now downplaying this shift with saudi arabia possibly thinking that the saudis are not going to go too far but the u.s. has underestimated such dynamic before with saddam hussein he was an ally of one point with a major hit in afghanistan and other folks so in this case it all depends on how four saudi arabia is actually willing to go with this number in virginia i'm going to start that are shifting the focus now to cattle where simple rhymes can get you behind bars a court has upheld a fifteen year sentence for a poet found guilty of insulting the ruler and inciting people to oust the
government the decision for the activist who was sympathetic to the arab spring has now been condemned by certain rights organizations and nicholas mcgee and the research from human rights watch he says that the case was clearly politically motivated. what we've seen of the poems that were unloaded onto the internet doesn't seem to be a saying that he's you know guilty of these offenses and of course you know these offenses are a country it's international standards of freedom of expression and we saw it it does seem to be a case that has a political slant to it yes you are i can see out of it the manner in which he was treated pretrial he over in addition to that he wasn't crazy for many of the original trial stations invite he wasn't even present for the the final court of appeal decision which was a yesterday morning when i seen a lot of pressure on bahrain marching a lot of pressure on me make it out of the emirates and i'm count always doesn't have the same levels of domestic this and as they did or it's the same story the issue where they are getting pressures migrant workers' rights and i thought but
generally speaking i think the international community can be a bit silent where the goals can sound and obviously. to some extent enables them to as you say to get away with some c.d.'s human rights violations. or lots of goodies waiting for you right now at our dot com that includes a very special souvenir from iran to russia a copy of a cia spy drone that iran says it shot down two years ago we've got more on the story about that at r.t. dot com including how the machine was captured reverse engineered and coded and why you're there you can also check out this story it's called a brain from orbit european science satellite expected to fall back to earth after two and a half years working overtime it will split into more than fifty pieces and where they'll end up that's anybody's guess. for now on the program on r.t. in its latest official statement on n.s.a. spying in france that u.s.
has labeled allegations that it logged millions of phone calls a lie this hasn't stopped the newspaper le monde from publishing another report this one about how america got the diplomatic upper hand by bugging computers at the united nations and more than half a billion dollars reportedly used to keep the so-called genie spy program up and running genie being the sibling of a notorious prison project allegedly saw millions of machines fire walls and routers all getting infected and dominique de villepin who served as the country's prime as well as interior and foreign minister he says simply put the u.s. has crossed the line. we knew that. some practices were existed but the search and overall system this came as a surprise for everybody in fact what we are seeing today is the incredible privileges of the us administration over the control of the world system we knew
that the us were controlling the financial system through the banking dominance of some big banks through the dollar currency reserve currency but controlling internet controlling the information you know well this is a privilege and monopoly if we are going to follow the same direction then confrontation might be in the. civil rights activist norman solomon he thinks the u.s. is trying to undo the damage to its image but it isn't even thinking about changing its spy upon the seas president obama is extremely adept at dancing through this kind of a firestorm and saying that he's willing to disclose and willing to be more forthcoming and he's willing to re-evaluate frankly he said that earlier this year when there was a big speech he gave in washington about the use of drones and yet we saw almost no
change in actual policy once it could be measured so i think one way to put that in context is that after secretary of state kerry arrived in paris in the last day he told a news conference that he would not discuss intelligence matters so there's a lot of fog coming from the white house and the state department not a lot of substance. some other global headlines for you briefly with the greek parliament that has now passed a law banning government funding to parties whose members are involved in criminal activity this means that the golden dawn party is funding will be frozen after its leaders were charged in connection with the killing of an amusing death which caused protests across greece and the party denies being a neo nazi movement despite its symbol also in the world update. hundreds of workers in london's chinatown have stopped making a racket as they marched through the streets in protest of police raids against
illegal immigrants they waved banners with slogans labeling the searches as racist and poorly targeted more than a dozen businesses have been hit in the area in recent months. the world headlines in the clashes between israeli soldiers and locals have been reported in the west bank city of ramallah. it's after troops killed a palestinian who was a member of a radical jihadist movement i.d.f. forces say he played a key role in. the bombing just last november. and the u.s. will send an extra one point six billion dollars in aid to pakistan military support will make up the major chunk of the allocated funds with only two hundred sixty million going toward civilian needs this comes right after amnesty international condemned america first drone war in pakistan saying it could be classified as a war crime. and america along with ten new european and arab states are throwing
their weight behind a peace conference slated for next month to try and find a solution to the syrian conflict though the rebel groups haven't yet said if they will attend the talks or not in geneva whether the fragmented opposition has a valuable role to play in rebuilding syria well that's all up for debate and that's the main subject with artie's crosstalk coming your way in about six minutes . they are very much themselves whether it's for a pan-islamic state or whether it's just for their own various criminal rings we don't really know and i don't think we should be so concerned we should focus on power sharing conflict resolution and reconstruction in syria whether anybody from the opposition cons or not my question is what. bring his people bring to the table to persuade those who do it. the future is open it's not predestined that he is going to be. the forever president of syria and it's not enough to do is to say well we'll have
a free election and let the people decide because the history of syrian elections over the last. has been that. if you lose your lection. cross-talk is happening in just a moment here on r.t. before we get there. the young attractive and they have a whole debt to pay off so some female university students in the u.k. are turning to pay for the dating websites where men can lavish cash and gifts on the goal of their choice but as r.t. sarah furthur reports its modern approach to money making can certainly have some unwanted consequences. young pretty student seeks wealthy older man welcome to the world of sugar daddy dating where anything you want question the. bags hair needs can apparently be yours at the click of
