thank you for watching the news adeleke international coming to you live from moscow i'm kate. video has emerged from syria showing a member of the white helmets rescue group allegedly handling that to capitated bodies of syrian soldiers warning you may find the following video disturbing a man can be seen wearing a t. shirt with a white helmet logo apparently moving the bodies into a skip the rescue group has distanced itself from the video however its actions have sparked controversy before and really soon as. well since this graphic video was posted on twitter people online have been outraged by it and in fact i believe we can now show you the video a blurred version of it once again so it was reportedly filmed in the southern syrian province of derogate and in this video we properly see a man wearing a t. shirt with that white helmets logo and he's apparently helping a group of people remove a number of bodies off of the truck and judging on the uniforms on these bodies
2:02 pm
well they're most likely either syrian soldiers or pro-government fighters and in fact at the end of the video what we see is this man with a white helmets t. shirt holding a syrian flag that was pulled out from the bodies but since this video has emerged while the white helmets has distanced themselves from this incident confirming that this man although he was a white helmets member but he's since been fired because he's violated the code of conduct of the group referring specifically to this video that was posted well they say the man was acting independently and not in the capacity as a white helmets member but the spy the ongoing criticism on what helmets the western mainstream media has been praising the white helmets as heroes and film documented they were actually won an oscar earlier this year here's a sample to be nominated for a nobel peace prize one of the subject of a new documentary on netflix. also known as a serious civil defense are a group of volunteers who were the first to arrive at the scene of an asteroid when the bombs fall a small group of volunteers called the white house minutes run into
2:03 pm
a smoldering rubble and rescue trapped victims story goes to. show why. it's a fairly moving away from the probably a little bit more toward syria and what these mainstream media reports often omit is the fact that white helmets happen in queues before repeatedly of the elex tie is to al nusra a terrorist group operating in syria and this latest video on twitter certainly is far from the only incident that the white helmet has been criticized. as. you feel . i am so as you
2:04 pm
can see this video really is just the latest in a string of constructor see surrounding the white helmet script. well genista nesa bailey has covered the shimming crisis on the ground many times during the conflict she says the video once again demonstrates the group's questionable ethics this is not the first time that we've saying the whitehall not being videoed participating and various atrocities in surrey and going back as far as two thousand and fifteen and the only reason that the white helmet so's i can put out a statement is of course because they've been caught out not let's just examine the incident it took place and it was an attack on this area an ira bomb aid the funding and advice on the old south to damascus highway not all over there an arab army soldiers according to my sources on the grounds were killed during the i touch so they were not all killed in action many are of those there are an arab
2:05 pm
army soldiers were murdered was slaughtered as prisoners of war that bodies with and clearly dismembered and mutilated and this white home it operates a was seen clambering over the bodies of the syrian arab army soldiers this is not the first time that this is being seen and has been photographed and has been questioned as regards them moral and there is their ethics. meanwhile in neighboring iraq suicide bombers have killed at least three people in mosul shopping district the area was recaptured from lies so several months ago the country's prime minister said the total liberation of the city will come within days but for now the heavy fighting there is affecting thousands of civilians who remain trapped. the other she doesn't. like it i'll tell.
2:06 pm
you that puts audio may be but i love you a lot of coffee a lot of. politics is going to look like jobs but hard to. love what appears to be part of their god they're not yet. either going to join in the joy to cover ok let's say. your car oh it right out. on me while experts have been speculating over who could replace icily to abu bakar al baghdadi if his death is confirmed it follows reports of his possible elimination by a russian and strike box on like al baghdadi who had a religious background the two main contenders to replace him have a very different history our by the and i add algy mightily both served as security officials under saddam hussein and following the u.s.
2:07 pm
led invasion of iraq in two thousand and three they both joined the sunny insurgency part of which later transformed into islamic state where military analysts come out alone thinks a disaster could be avoided if the u.s. led coalition didn't destroy iraq institutions when the army of saddam was disbanded a lot of the baath was for disgruntled to join the sunni insurgency against us forces and also against the iranian backed me. a lot of them are not ideological supporters of isis some radical islam but this feeling aggrieved by the iraqi government saying that the u.s. was very heavy handed again to sin they are trying certainly united states and united kingdom ignored all the advice given to them about dismantling the iraqi state specially the iraqi military and security forces it was one thing getting rid of saddam but destroyed you ocky stay systematic he had led to this disaster.
2:08 pm
there have been more protests in central london members of the english defense league took to the streets to vent their anger at a spate of islamist terror attacks plus the met by anti fascist groups who organize to counter rally chanting slogans saying refugees a welcome in the country there's a large police presence but as aunties nora smith reports that's only adding to the tension. another day another protest at least that's how it's being fair in london at the moment these are two small but very strong demonstrations here we're standing with the english defense league they have come out today in response to the number of terrorist attacks that we have had here in the u.k. just over the past couple of months that saying enough is enough but we need to go up islamic fundamentalism because it's all for the reason that very angry about it as i say a small number of people very very emotional and it being very very heavily policed day and i'll get you when they come around and see just a little bit on the other side i think the police keep them very well apart but
2:09 pm
those are the anti fascist state that unite against them and other affiliates agree on they all the incredibly rocky that's about forty fifty of them at the last count but they're very noisy and that say these people the english defense league have no place on the street the person they want to prevent them from marching that every time he out of the out the anti russian amounts we spoke to a few of the people who. it's a good thing what's going to tempt the third one against the rise of racism as them for viet fascism in the u.k. words can't describe how much joy takes what every thing they stand for they're not see that precious son is by placing them in society we strive for our freedom. no more surely lower in this country. i'm a patriot no rights is there is a difference just because i want christian always does it by me rights and i think the demonstrations of a crime pretty much
2:10 pm
a regular occurrence why would that another one on the same street that's just a couple of months ago and even if they're not big enough that they have big own destruction of hundreds of police say a police helicopter up in the sky just to please or is a very small but as they say very right the administration. well meanwhile racial tensions in the us and making headlines yet again a university professor from connecticut received death threats after an inflammatory post on facebook he called for an end to white supremacy using an expedient filled version of the hash tag let them die. while his post was meant as a comment on the shooting of a republican congressman last week the storm of anger was so intense the campus was temporarily closed the professor fled the premises and a since issued a public apology well the latest figures show hate crime in the u.s. has rocketed in at least six big cities this type of crime sorte least
2:11 pm
a twenty percent increase last year kind of open looks now at how racial tension is to fighting society reports of hate crimes have been surging across u.s. headlines in recent months. the rise of racially motivated attacks has been a trend in the united states since the two thousand and sixteen presidential election new york city has seen a twenty four percent rise in hate crimes with twenty percent across the state cincinnati ohio has seen an increase of thirty eight percent while chicago has seen twenty percent but all of this comes as both the press and politicians have reveled in race when it comes to picking a president ninety percent of the vote is ninety percent over what trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in such
2:12 pm
insulting and ignorant terms i love the signs behind me blacks for trump i like those i one thing he does know is how to get angry white men to vote for him president obama over the weekend delivering a roll ring and deeply personal appeal to black voters at times it seemed like the election was just all about race we heard about minorities who felt threatened by trial and angry white men who voted for him but if you look for such a narrative elsewhere you'd struggle france italy in the netherlands for example don't allow any collecting of statistics based on race or religion and it doesn't play any role in politics so are they right and america wrong we decided to ask people's opinions on the street i think it's a great thing to get statistics on what people think about him like a different country that way you can know what type of palace you need to be developed i think they're stirring people up to put one against the other and i believe that. assuming someone's economic or social or political standings based on
2:13 pm
their race is definitely. wrong i think it it opens up a dialogue for people to start talking about what some of those issues might be to have some dated analyze so you should could collect statistics or ethnic or religious affiliations has always been used as a kind of power the power in the united states in terms of politics public in the democratic party really capitalize on. divisions of all sorts and they use this as a wedge to drive. whatever the arguments or whatever the political agenda is parties are really actively looking for that wedge issue in order to somehow state that really to steer the public away from the really common issues which are affecting all spastics of society as with any controversy related to race it's quite apparent that americans don't see eye to eye. party new york. coming up after
2:14 pm
the break it's our special coverage of the twenty seventeen confederations cup. i don't agree that this is the time for the financial sation bubble to implode to collapse i don't think it's time that these banks add another fifteen trillion dollars to create the european central bank to leverage this up but other five trillion dollars easily bank of japan is a never ending fountain of free cash zero percent interest rate so this is a way to go. the recent spat between the gulf states has highlighted yet another middle eastern conflict while turkey is siding with cretonne iran against saudi arabia the long
2:15 pm

2:17 pm

2:20 pm
a little bit out of their depth when it came to holding the ball up and trying to get it up front but maybe that's something to learn. for that the really big tournament in twelve months time at the world cup but a lot of excitement here before the game as well a lot of summer bro hot side in the tatarstan sun i managed to speak to some of the visitors some of those mexican fountains and here's what they told me. made most of us were thinking of coming and having a lot of cold people in really has been the opposite like very friendly very like in mexico and very open and very willing to help so we have been very very exciting to have these. amazing culture from the russians nowadays well we have some things that are very similar in terms of the culture and all the rest are very russian of course but we're enjoying very much good use of the weather changes every thirty minutes but aside from that everything is good sort of entering the ice it's warm water we thought it was going to be like more soviet style but it's very moscow's
2:21 pm
very morally here like if you like one of the provinces it's also nice la. i. know you'll hear. those and yet you notice here only it will even lower lows for us alone here is a singing along that if anybody wants to know because you can get and use that because mexico will be back next year the top of their regional grouping called. sixteen points there in costa rica at a very good world cup in two thousand and fourteen on thirteen points in the united states in third the top three from concord tough to qualify for mexico el tree i'll be back with a sombrero is next year i'll be really glad that we got that what i would call a pace that hearing from the fans because as much as it's about the football i would say an equally big part about the world cup this is the globalization russia is going to be welcome in people from mexico from costa rica all over the world going to come going to bring their culture and as much as anything it's
