to our international with the news at the top of the hour live from moscow i'm kate . video has emerged from syria showing a member of the white home as rescue group allegedly hounding them to their day to bodies of syrian soldiers and a warning you may find the following video footage disturbing a man can be seen wearing a t. shirt with the white helmets logo apparently moving the bodies into a skip the rescue group has distanced itself from the video however its actions top spot controversy before and as. well since this graphic video was posted on twitter people online had 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 duran and in this video we properly see a man i wearing the t. shirt with that white helmet slogan he's apparently helping a. people remove
6:02 pm
a number of bodies off of the truck and judging on the uniforms on these bodies 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 come firming 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 i refer 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 despite the ongoing criticism on what helmets the western mainstream media has been praising the white helmets as heroes and film documented they were exhibit one 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 the white house also known as a serious civil defense or a group of volunteers who were the first to arrive at the scene of an asteroid when the bombs fall
6:03 pm
a small group of volunteers called the white house meant to run into smoldering rubble and rescue injured and trapped victims still goes to. show why. it's a. way the problem with the war torn syria and what these mainstream media reports often omit is the fact that white helmets happen in queues before repeatedly of the air let's talk to a terrorist group operating in syria and this latest video on twitter certainly is far from the only incident that the white house has been criticized. you're.
6:04 pm
so as you can see this video really is just the latest in a string of constructor see surrounding the white helmet script. jenison s.-a bailey has covered the syrian 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 way to home what i'm 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 of that is there an arab army soldiers according to my sources on the grounds were killed during the
6:05 pm
a touch so they were not all killed in action many are of the i was there an arab 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 their their ethics. and in neighboring iraq suicide bombers have killed at least three people in mosul shopping district the area was recaptured for myself 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. in iraq he doesn't. know much about. the.
6:06 pm
good side you know men leave it for the young lot of coffee a lot of the. top political it like jobs all of the. love going to be part of their god they're not yet. they're going to join up and then you want to cover ok let's say that you couldn't go out of nowhere but out. well meanwhile experts have been speculating over who could replace ice a leader who back at al baghdadi if his death is confirmed it follows reports all of his possible elimination by russian as strike bots unlike al baghdadi who had a religious background the two main contenders to replace him have a very different history. and i add out you might both served as security officers
6:07 pm
under saddam hussein and following the u.s. led invasion of iraq in two thousand and three they faced joins the sun the insurgency part of which later transformed into islamic state military analysts come all i'm saying 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. insignias u.s. forces and also against iranian backed militias a lot of them are not ideological supporters of isis some radical islam but they feel aggrieved by the iraqi governments and that the u.s. has very heavy handed again to sunni are trying certainly united states and united kingdom ignoring all the advice given to them about dismantling the iraqi state specially the iraqi military and security forces because one thing getting rid of saddam but destroyed you are the state system that he had led to this disaster.
6:08 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 but they were met by anti fascist groups who organize a counter rally chanting slogans saying refugees are welcome in the country only as a launch police presence but as artie's noor smith reports that only added to the tension now that that day another protest at least that's how it's being here 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 every i'm going about it as i say of no number of people very very emotional and it being very very
6:09 pm
heavily policed then you find they come around and see just a little bit on the other side i think the police keep them very well apart but the and the fact that they've got you nicely going back to them and other affiliates agree on they all the incredibly rocky that's about fifty of them at the last count but they're very noisy and that they these people the english defense league have no place on the street the person they want to prevent them from arts. that every time he'd yell about the anti fascist amounts as well we spoke to a few of the people who had stated she was going to tempt her against the rise. as them for viet fascism in the u.k. words can't describe how much oil takes. every thing they stand for there are no secret fascists and this by by spinning the saudis were spying for our freedom. no more sure lower in this country. i'm a patriot no racist there is
6:10 pm
a difference because all one christian values is a by me righteous as i see these demonstrations becoming pretty much a regular occurrence by with another one on the same street that's just a couple of months ago and even if they're not big enough that big own destruction there are hundreds of police everything beyond the helicopter up in the sky i just the police boys are very small but as they say very aggressive demonstration. now the third group games of the twenty seventeen confederations cup coffee producing some big results and for our special full coverage neil harvey and stan collymore are in sochi. booked into the black sea resort of sochi where the group a action has concluded the results are in mexico to russia one portugal for you zealand no alongside me as always thank all of our sense of history that the big game of the day russia mexico here we're hoping that the house will go through will
6:11 pm
be very good for the tournament wasn't some of the off open the scoring for russia on twenty four minutes at a very crisp british it was across the right time of the mexican goalkeeper my well steady the nerves great wasn't mexico came back into the game in equalizing five minutes church itself needs to look to manage your game see a game out didn't five minutes later the mexican this is a shocking way to lose our teams one long point to brainstorms and he grew up in front of his one hundred first appearance of the russian national team was in no man's land but the hosts arrived will effect the tournament perhaps not because they're still going to the very best like sanchez christiane overall though but disappointing for russia ok scout mexico go through though they were fancied too and of course when in the group the big favorites european champions portugal is have a look at their couple of the goals from not matching with who else but christiane around there who opened the scoring on thirty three minutes bread and butter for a striker of his quality a penalty and look at
6:12 pm
a confident smashes it home then five minutes later thirty eighth minute to a big summer signing for manchester city but not a silver sliding in for that kind of money expect you'd want to see if it bravery in the box two more goals as well like the fact that new zealand were here playing top quality competition. plus now i'm sure russia the news elizabeth thinking yeah we didn't do too well but great sort of test of their mettle for the world cup let's go now to our correspondent you know neal who's been outside the stadium and inside the stadium. what was the atmosphere like when russia scored that goal i imagine there was a heck of a lot of hope was forty two thousand people inside the stadium and about forty one facing them are russian. they absolutely blew the roof off arena case on a lot of hope at the start of each half as the game went on the composure of the mexicans really started to show russia just 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
6:13 pm
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 top down sun i managed to speak to some of the visitors some of those mexican fountains and most of us were thinking of coming and having a lot of cold people and really has been the opposite like very friendly very like in mexico very open and very willing to help so we have a 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 those 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 thought it or yeah it's better it's warm water we thought it was going to be like more soviet style but it's very moscow's very modern here is like if you like one of the provinces it's also nice aha yeah i. i bought i

6:15 pm

6:16 pm
it's called the new video replay i think. well done i have to hand it to officially more. than a top of the race i'm sure it was a great great subversive. place. it's very exciting and we've been through all four cities already we go on for example. and then back to some places burke for the fall i know i would imagine that will be a. joy and could be portugal germany could be portugal against chile and every fun that comes of it gets an opera. brights them some stereotypes again one of the reasons why i joined also in this project was because only here are stereotypical comments about russia that we all. came with every single package that you're joining us we should be good stereotype so that i know about a fantastic so i'm it's absolutely tropical here more football tomorrow of course
6:17 pm

6:18 pm

6:19 pm
supremacy using an expanded to version of the how shall i let them die well his post was meant as a comment on the shooting of a republican congressman last week and the storm of anger was so intense the campus was temporarily closed the professor fled the premises and has 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 a twenty percent increase last year kind of open now looks at how racial tension is dividing society reports of hate crimes have been surging across the 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
6:20 pm
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 the race when it comes to picking a president ninety percent of the vote is ninety percent over what black vote trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in such insulting and ignorant terms i love the signs behind me blacks for truck by like those one thing does know is how to get angry white men to vote for. president obama over the weekend delivering a roaring 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 trump 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
6:21 pm
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 but statistics on what people think about in like a different country that way you can know what type of palaces 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 their races that's really. bronze i think it it opens up a dialogue for people to start talking about what some of those issues might be to have some data down allies 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. to
6:22 pm
really actively looking for that wedge issue in order to somehow stick to 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 open r.t. new york. now with less than one hundred days to go before the general election in germany chancellor angela merkel has literally spelling out what the country stones . well just to give. a flavor of the eight is a cheese released the words are there which means state army and photo brought or signed which is for made in germany plus muslims have painted stones for partner of the you and nato along with the word for mushroom hunting and the o.
6:23 pm
is for the famous october fest along with german order well not content with this we took the liberty of creating our own alphabet. and buying among friends is not acceptable. i'm going to say thank you thank you good good record you know what an intensive elaboration. after america's defense secretary admitted us failings in afghanistan last week the pentagon seems to have been looking for somebody to blame and it's found someone
6:24 pm
didn't it's first report to congress since the election of the pentagon named pakistan as the single greatest external factor hindering u.s. actions while the report refers to what it calls support of afghan insurgents by the pakistani government during sixteen years although its involvement in afghanistan washington has given a range of reasons why it's afghan campaign isn't going to plan. iran is reportedly arming and funding the taleban corruption is a huge challenge and afghanistan that russia is now meddling in afghanistan it's very difficult to succeed on the battlefield when your enemy enjoys external support and safe haven we had the. over legitimacy lent to the taliban by the russians the problem that the us has and trying to carry out the occupation and subdue the population and i mean the real answer here is the u.s. has to get out of afghanistan and they claim that they would have resolved
6:25 pm
everything and they would have won the war if only it wasn't for pakistan or only or if it only wasn't for something else but there are always looking because they aren't able to succeed the. problem that they have in a war that has lasted longer than any other u.s. war in history almost sixteen years now is the fact that the people do not wish to accept. and americans attempts to settle the afghan crisis have seen several surprising. we're not winning in afghanistan right now. going for a. look like you know on a cruise i shall see thank you. and a gun paid to six million dollars to mail
6:26 pm
