it is three pm in moscow you're watching aren't international in iraq radical islamist militants linked to al qaida are planning to take baghdad after successfully advancing in the north the so-called islamic state in iraq and syria group has already captured the entire province of nabo which you can see here including the regional capital the extremist then moved south and took the city of to crete although recent local media reports say the army has since managed to push the jihadists out and it's thought the government asked the u.s. to carry out drone strikes against the insurgents not explains how that might mean washington's engaging against its own military hardware. but we're leaving behind a sovereign stable and self-reliant iraq two and a half years later the people america left behind are running away leaving for
their lives from host a million people have already escaped from iraq's second city mosul off the i.s.i. oil fields the army to retreat reports a gunman they've also sees a nearby oil refinery town iraq's prime minister calling. for a state of emergency after hundreds of gunman took control of strategic parts of the northern city of mosul by wednesday militants had seized the turkish consulate in mussel kidnapping the head of diplomatic mission and two dozen staff members some thirty thousand iraqi soldiers reportedly turned and ran as militants from the islamic state of iraq and syria known as isis moved in unleashing an all out assault on the city they've taken control of hospitals police stations they have taken control of ammunition dumps and weapons stores that the fleeing government forces of lead based left behind many of the abandoned weapons and military hardware now in the hands of hardline terrorists were imported into iraq from gas

been killed while the u.s. was looking for w m d's and spreading democracy. the unified and competent iraqi. terry that was allegedly a stablished has buckled weapons that were made in the usa are now in the hands of america's enemies and the country left to fend for itself in a state of crisis. r t. well at least two million people have been displaced by the violence and there are also reports of mass beheadings being carried out by the extremist investigative journalist robert perry who's a middle east specialist believes its iraq is collapsing and the u.s. should take responsibility. well it suggests that the iraqi military is indicating that it's beginning to collapse the clearly this is a very divided country in terms of the question of stability or instability the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three was the force that shattered this nation and it's
been hard to imagine how it's going to be put back together in any meaningful way since then you had even someone like senator joe biden now the vice president suggesting some years ago that the country should be divided in three that you have a sunni section a shiite section and a kurdish section and it seems to be moving in that direction. of the cross what's developing in iraq by heading to argue dot com where you'll find expert analysis on the key hottest and players in the troubled country. residence and slowdowns going east ukraine claimed they were fire bombed by the military overnight the city is a focal point in a conflict and locals say artillery fire has been ongoing for days schools hospitals and government buildings have been partially destroyed water and power supplies are regularly cut off ukraine's health ministry says more than two hundred people including nine children have been killed in the east since the government
began its military operation. as well as the regular army the ukrainian government has also been using national guard conscripts and they were the main force behind a military assault in the east but entire units have since had a back to key of claiming they're on paid and have been abandoned by the government . almost impossible to go on a pedestal is that all that is according to official papers we don't exist where in the aleutian it's like we haven't been deployed here we haven't got any ammunition nothing we were sleeping on the ground because we didn't even have camps they just sent us there and forgot about us and while all the generals and commanders was sitting pretty and there were intense guarded by the. they p.c.'s who were sent to fight like cannon for their. fish. so teach us we haven't been paid with our own six hundred or so rival here two months ago and sit we didn't
have any food instead they've been feeding us with promises that it's going to happen tomorrow but we're tired of waiting. rushes during a new resolution to solve the situation in ukraine to the un security council and there's a closer look at the crisis that split the country in today's edition of worlds apart here on r t international now i know that you've just returned from ukraine doesn't feel like a whole new country compared to the previous times you visited it no i think that would be overstating the fact it is true that there is a great deal of hope among but this is a fresh start but equally people's memories are longer than seven or eight years and for many it's just the same old thing one oligarchy has effectively replaced another. america's hunger to dominate the genetically modified food market could get curbed on the other side of the atlantic the e.u.
has reached a principled decision to let individual countries have the right to ban such crops the move still has to be approved by the european parliament which has long pushed for greater international trade in g m o's even though more than half of member nations are ganske them our europe correspondent peter oliver reports. countries like here in germany we've seen a massive outcry against genetically modified foods people preferring to show that it's all gone extols like the one behind me now the reasons they've given for they saw several most notably health reasons people who go up against g.m.o. foods are saying that there's not enough research on the fact the research hasn't even being done one other concern revolves around trade in genetically modified foods at the end of june we're going to see to negotiations on the new transatlantic trade and investment policy really getting into full swing
a t tip as it's known well its critics say this could allow american companies to pass off g.m.o. food stuffs with l.t. having to let europeans know they say that they will the standards of food in the united states just fall into the scrunch with days in europe now we have seen bombs in the past just recently pulls from the united states so they weren't going to be allowed to be imported into europe so it does seem that when it comes to the general public in europe they've given g.m.o. a resoundingly no. well the facts on people's house have donned perceptions of genetically modified food for years and in that time there have been many studies and just what laboratory crops might do to the human body and research has shown doubt link them in fact potentially to causing diseases such as cancer allergies and also childhood learning disorders and emails
may be divisive in europe but china has taken a much more robust stance as like here chefs he discussed with r.t. is neil harvey. seem to be proud of putting their own corn into the market and the reason for that is because the chinese no longer want to buy the american corn in fact if we put it into numbers and we can see that the the sales and the import has dropped significantly this year china already rejected one twenty five million tonnes of corn the wall street journal put it into money and said that american trading companies lost more than half a billion dollars already we need to mention that china has been the one of the biggest buyers of american corn over the years five million tons per year and the third largest importer and this year the sales of american corn to china dropped by eighty five percent and this is all over the fact they don't want g.m. food now presumably this is because the public are demanding this is well i mean they are the consumers of the rule indeed the main reason cited is that the corn has been genetically modified the chinese government revealed it by what we spoke
to an expert from tokyo research on agriculture and he told us that this may be a very very good move for china and chinese consumers actually getting more sophisticated more qualities consumers so they're looking for value and for emotional value actually in products if you buy strawberry drew or in china and it mimics the tastes of fragrance and. that it has no ethical emotional value to the consumer and as you know china rising middle class in china is very conscious of the program wants to buy. it could be a great spin to that we recently heard a statement from the russian prime minister that russia also wants to sort of abstain from buying genetically modified products and it has enough soil and enough capacities and enough capabilities of growing its own natural food so in the north of china where i was i heard an opinion that this may be
a good sort of point in time for russia and china to trade particularly in corn and other grain production as well so we knows maybe it will be russian corn in the chinese markets. football fans around the globe were counting the final few hours until the starting whistle blowers for the first match of the twenty fourteen world cup and as we reported later football fever house even reached the international space station plus. the smartphone app that's sparking road rage among london cabbies who claim it loses them passengers and money. the. review i couldn't make up down in the final. days the longer the new york

could have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researchers. now taxi drivers have brought major european cities to a whole because of an increasingly popular smartphone app which they say puts their jobs at risk are just explains why cabbies in london think it's just not fair. it's a species that's roamed the british capital for well over a century but is london's iconic black cab about to become extinct there's another beast encroaching on the taxi's turf a smartphone app called. well the up works by tracking your location and showing you the nearest cars available so i'm just booked to newbury my driver olim john will pick me up in seven minutes.
once i arrive at my destination the app will tell me how much i owe and it will be charged straight to my bank card but london taxi drivers say it's in legal for any vehicle other than a license taxi to be fitted with a meter that can calculate your fare is wrong in the next on the phone is a meter and therefore should be regulated by. the car he's one for if you can people do volunteer work for the diary or the form or paid for the cab for more pay for the profit. is for as pale. as competition is healthy the capital's man says the black cap is part of the fabric of the city but there needs to be room for technology they can try those protesting head don't want to be but in london they're not happy with the capital's transpose authority for allowing the app to operate now several thousand of them have gathered in central
london and they brought traffic to a standstill google goldman sachs and a lot of damage and become police they believe is just get over. this kid of the big louise of the rush one must only reason really london i believe to them the system is going to be the winds up money we work hard we don't all use all the knowledge and blood comes along was a fool to. it's about the photo while you go let's go straight to the rich isn't the first threat to the hackney carriage the fact treat that builds it went bust and was any saved by chinese investment it is you know to create sensual kind of iconic london and it's going to toss everyone stay right where you go. fair enough but the irony is that by demonstrating against the new smartphone app the beleaguered london taxi has generated some priceless publicity for the very company
they say is driving away their customers. london now to some other world headlines and arm extremists in syria have blown up a car at a market in the city of homes seven people are thought died and several others wounded according to preliminary reports by the local media the attack comes just over a week after the country held its presidential election in may holmes was cleared of militants. the united states has resumed the use of drones in pakistan after suspending the program last december to allow talks between the islam about government and the taliban at least sixteen militants were killed in airstrikes on their hideouts in the northern waziristan province a few days ago taliban fighters launching brazen attacks on the country's largest airport in karachi killing dozens of. troops from rwanda and the democratic republic of congo have clashed on their shared border congolese
officials accused randon soldiers of crossing the border and kidnapping a congolese army corporal who was then killed but rondo insists congress troops attacked first triggering the exchange of fire. america's intelligence agency is on a mission to improve its public image and has been holding its first ever public conference the cia has already got a presence on twitter to try and reach out and give the agency a more human face here's argues going on what came up at the conference cia director john brennan was upset with the media was how is he said distorted the narrative is with regard to the work that the cia is doing all these reports about drone strikes edward snowden's revelations about the u.s. government trampling on civil liberties all of this is not to john brennan's liking his mission is to restore the public's trust and not only of the american public but also of the public globally foreign governments are becoming embarrassed of their cooperation with the cia because of the bad perceptions that are out there
and that worries john brennan to have been dismissed. the narrative seems to be skewed. the middle of the narrative maybe. in the uk after nine eleven a lot of trust was put in the cia then as the director said it went the other way he obviously did not focus on how the agency managed to squander that trust either by providing flawed intelligence on weapons of mass destruction in iraq or it may be due to the drone operations which reportedly kill more civilians than terrorists or due to how the agency managed to miss the boston marathon bombers even though they had the warnings but it was not there to talk specifics journalists were not allowed to ask questions only the participants of the conference and those were scholars georgetown foreign service students intelligence professionals the questions that john brennan received were a very general character and this was the first cia conference on national security
by the way they were not allowed to film anybody in the audience the cia has just launched this twitter account and all of this is a result of john brennan deciding to engage in more public appearances to fix the tarnished image of the agency. while the image conscious intelligence community tries to defend its ways and means activist have launched a new campaign to support with the lower is being hounded by the authorities and backed by the so-called current group in berlin that brand edward snowden's defense fund are you spoke to some of the organizers the reality of the situation is that we don't live in an ideal world and we need to support people who bring out seriously uncomfortable truths so we have the reforms in the united states that allow people to come and talk about real serious abuses of power about fraud waste and abuse we need organizations like courage to be able to support people where the state has fallen short and unfortunately in the united states those united states
have really fallen short for edward snowden i think anyone that speaks streets of power whether it's a whistleblower a generalist or a publisher. that those heroic acts and they should be supported there are many with supplies that are examples of how the united states treats trieste teles and it is they basically prosecute them and that is what they have done with that with snowden you could see it last year when they tout the president's plane trying to find him so i think that the united states has a long way to go in protecting trade tell us as they should the bus takes on the world's financial power players in a couple of minutes here on our team or national.
in london in one of the caring hearts of one of the capitals of loving liberal e.u. they've implemented a plan to finally get almost people off the streets at night so that they provide these desperate people with a job so they can at least earn a few pounds and have some human dignity of course not they put down spikes everywhere. on the ground so that the hobos have nowhere to sleep yes that is right they're laying down spikes to keep up the homeless just like dragon's teeth keep out tanks now if this happened somewhere in say bangladesh on a bad day i might say well that is their business but all the liberals in the e.u. just constantly cry from their ivory tower to the whole world about how we all need to be tolerant and be taxed to death to help people but as a guy who grew up in a bad neighborhood i can tell you that liberals never want to live near the people they claim to want to help you know henry ford was one of those guys who said that you should never give anybody any handouts so what he did was give the disabled and the poor are decent paying jobs at his factory so listen up you liberal loony bin
if you want to get those evil yucky print for people off the streets just put them to work it will reduce your city of its homeless problem a lot faster than spikes will but that's just my opinion. take that as a sign that the united states would be more last ok we'd be only gart still calling the shots in ukraine in such undemocratic fashion as long as they are in line of being us national interests the united states i think its influence over ukraine is possibly a good set. of course i know. even the head of the cia has been welcomed with open arms in ukraine in recent times so of course the ukraine which is western leaning does indeed if you like to american overtures.
