thirty years this theory serious problem had not actually been addressed what will that investigation into the chemical industry secrets reveal. this has been. a tough week for the british prime minister as she faces calls to resign over her handling of the ground fault tragedy which she's apologized as well as mounting protests. as an explanation for. syrian fighter jets led the russian military to start trucking u.s. and coalition aircraft in syria as potential targets. for the muslims around the world mark the end of holy month of ramadan we report. in moscow.

and fears of a repeat of the ground for tower disaster more than thirty blocks failed fire safety tests across the country earlier this week the british prime minister to resign may apologized for the tragedy the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without roofs over their heads without even basic information about what happened what they should do that was a failure of the state local and national to help people when they needed it most as prime minister i apologize for that failure and as prime minister i've taken responsibility for doing what we can to put things right. for in britain for more than a hundred years broke out last wednesday and was only put out more than twenty four hours later the death toll currently stands at at least seventy nine people the reason my own government has been widely criticised for not doing enough crowds gathered in central little wednesday morning my resignation.
during the so-called day of rage demonstration clashes erupted between police and protesters the morning justice for the victims and an end to the current government a number of arrests were also made police say around five hundred people took part we spoke to some of the demonstrators. we need to start the work the only thing we need to start working on it is those people suffering those young people something very good i think that if you lose a leg. they put i don't you know do you know. i enjoy my life when they want to. make sure it was. keeping after this massacre they could just buy people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and louis needs to be trying. to house ok
you know why would this. be fair. to to reason my should take the blame for these. people in the house of parliament. to play. the victim as of last week scornful teleplays may have been exposed not only to fire and smoke but also to hide it toxic gas that's according to the latest expert analysis of the tragedy in the british capital. it is one of the deadliest poisons there is and experts claim insulation boards produce a bentley gas when they burn and there were reports from hospitals that they were treating three people for cyanide poisoning part of the scandal is clouding the material used outside of the building which turned out to be extremely flammable. well tourism money has ordered a thorough inquiry into the tragedy and pledged five million pounds to help victims . in london asking people what they think the u.k. needs to reconsider its spending priorities but british government is spending this
money on certain things which things do you think they're spending. with thirteen billion to the n.h.s. social care as then the seventy million you think it's social care yeah it is what they're spending on that. they're spending three hundred seventy million. thoughts . this is how much is going to the survivors. it's actually shocking when you see like. five then yeah. yeah. that's the fun of it but they can spend three hundred seventy on. this book impose really need refurbished really. this is. it's shameful shameful. now this week the u.k. also marks one year since that motor to leave the european union though the actual divorce talks of only just got on the way the referendum result created
a political earthquake to be off the shocks of which are still being felt today. i will move a motion in the house of commons calling for a general election to be held on the eighth of june to resume a wanted to strengthen her hand embrace the negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her standing in the divorce from the e.u. breaks it. corrects it for tourism a breaks it means giving up access to the e.u. single market and customs union taking full control of u.k. borders compromise on the free movement of people but instead of a mandate to reason may go to hung parliament white criticism of her breaks that position no deal for it is better than a deal or no deal would be a very very bad for now will britain needs to work out a new breakthrough plan which is not easy but the divided parliament in the democratic unionist party which may hopes to form a majority with opposes heartbreaks it well the u.k.
position leaves more questions than answers some fear the negotiations which have already started will bring little progress through the wait for second breaks that referendum not likely even labor are resigned to this breakup except respects the result we were afraid it won't be bluffing or come to leaving. the conditions of the divorce agreement and now even more uncertain than ever and things you should go from the law messy to fix. the process officially started when brussels received a letter from the reason why it out saying the divorce money british citizens still strongly oppose the decision and some express their anger once again on friday parties politico takes us through the twists and turns now of britain's. road to breakup. it was a very changed the course of history the forty eight percent who voted to stay were outraged although the others they were delighted the show has risen.
to become a national bank holiday we will call it a. night of firearms may have been jumping the gun his so-called independence day is still a distant prospect the referendum result killed the political career of david cameron and allowed home secretary theresa may to step up to the plate in the run up to the vote she has been a quiet remain but the desire to lead post brags that britain forced her to reconsider her position bricks it means bricks and we're going to make a success of it a year down the line that sounds like something from an alternate universe considering that reason may hold an election in order to strengthen her hand in the
braggs it talks but ended up in the polls and losing her parliamentary majority her atrocious result meant that politically weakened government limped into negotiations with brussels earlier this week and bear in mind these talks were never going to be a walk in the park. but it. can be concluded quickly. threats against a question that's been issued by european politicians commission was trying to bully the british people arguments over whether the u.k. would pave the e.u. one hundred billion just read this bill guaranteeing the rights of he uses isn't in the u.k. and who would get custody of gibraltar. what we thought any issues but there is aroused took a back seat when britain was hit by a wave of terror for terror attacks in the space of just three months to be precise
and many britons held to resume a direct plea responsible because she'd been head of the home office for a six year is before becoming prime minister. and with all the security and political chaos here people even notice that earlier this week brings it because he ations officially kicked off but not in the way that london would have hoped the british government's already been accused of caving in over the braggs it gadgil and opinion polls now show that if the country got to vote again it would reject leaving you so just like to reason may be the plan for braggs it went from strong and stable so weak and wobbly within the space of just one yeah.
now syrian state media says at least two people have been killed by israeli airstrikes and disputed golan heights israel's defense force says it bombed syrian military targets off they fired across the border into israel the i.d.f. released this video of its bombing raids the incident took place during a battle between syrian government troops and the hardest militants in the area of damascus has accused israel of providing cover for the terrorists strikes syrian officials have not commented on the alleged firing of their military into israel. meanwhile there is confusion over the rules of foreign agent in syria after the downing of a syrian fighter jet by a u.s. warplane last sunday and has now halted its military cooperation with washington in syria over that incident russia's the fence ministry warn that it will now try any u.s. led croft in syria as potential targets the ministry also accused washington of violating a key military agreement with moscow russia's foreign minister says the americans
have some explaining to do. yes. there was a mechanism to avoid syrian airspace incidents between russia and the us that is now suspended after the us shut down the plane we have requested a detailed explanation through the ministry of defense we expect that it will be provided by the us. at the pentagon earlier claimed it has shut down the syrian jet in self-defense software bombed u.s. backed militants but damascus says its plane was attacking the islamic state is not the first time either the u.s. has the u.s. led coalition rather thought of forces in the war zone or the syrian jet was down near the i still held city of rocker just here which is under siege of course by u.s. backed local troops last month in southern syria the coalition also bombed pro-government forces several times after accusing them of violating the so-called the confliction
zone around the area of the border crossing artes and it's an army takes a closer look at the latest role. the u.s. shoots down syrian plane over syria in self-defense the only actions that we've taken against pro regime forces in syria and they've been to specific incidents have been in self-defense let's imagine a random guy comes into your house with a gun and shoots your dog and then he's like it was just self-defense i wanted to make sure there was no violence going on here d. as coalition speaking of the escalation after this self-defense move the situation couldn't be worse russia and now considers all u.s. led coalition planes in the area of potential targets and are tracking them all of this happened as both the u.s. and syrian government backed up by the russian air force were fighting isis in the stronghold of raka now washington and moscow have locked horns in syria again focus
has shifted and ice is probably breathing a deep sigh of relief while watching syrian fighter jets crash in flames on the horizon good job superpowers you're not so super slick. tensions flared even further on tuesday after the u.s. led coalition to shut down another syrian aircraft. drove the pentagon released the statement claiming the drone had been advancing on the u.s. but forces in southern syria once again the coalition said the downing of the aircraft was motivated by self defense reaction to the spiraling situation from several experts on the region did the americans react to syrian threats as a source or were they trying to assert sovereignty over syria who think about it really ever since the early one thousand nine hundred ninety s. have been used to it being able to patrol what they regard as enemy skies with impunity and they feel threatened but also the allies on the ground are threatened so there is a risk that in fact they may try to assert themselves against any syrian or russian
limitations on their activities over. there are a lot of calls and could spiral out of control who are very dangerous situation although some people in washington are saying all the russians will never stand up to us well maybe not but what if regarding are we going towards you know more suspension of cooperation i think that's what some people in the us administration actually won so they don't meaning they don't want to have cooperation between the u.s. and russia maybe not necessarily trump himself but i think you do have thinkers who are very anti russian in the administration a step by step a trump is bowing down to the hand to russian voices in his in his administration i think we are heading towards a more suspension of cooperation and more hostility between moscow and washington which could mean some very bleak scenarios for the future. for us questions about the targets of the u.s. intervention in syria now being asked on capitol hill
a prominent republican senator rand paul has slammed washington's latest military moves this is illegal war at this point then there's the practical question the practical question is doing anything you want killing every perceived enemy in every perceived leader of chieftain of five people in some misbegotten village is it helping president trumps administration is also facing criticism for breaking its pre-election valves to scale back u.s. foreign interventions. looks at the mission creep of washington's latest war. trump made it clear that defeating terrorism and putting an end to the trend of u.s. interventions in the middle east were top priorities so he opted for granting more power to the military what i do is i authorized by military we have the greatest military in the world ok but if it helps eradicate eisel what's the problem well first we have the us training and giving arms to a bunch of anti-government forces one of them the new syrian army would really like to topple assad then there's the syrian democratic forces largely consisting of
kurds who would really love to grab more power from the government and eventually become independent so once i suppose finish we will have fully trained armed to the teeth forces controlling significant chunks of syrian territory partially hostile to the government what could possibly go wrong so it seems in this effort to defeat beisel the u.s. could in fact be fanning new hotbed of tension if you like washington has a case of tunnel vision trying to solve only one problem without seeing the bigger picture sound familiar and should iraq anyone but history teaches us nothing clearly not even tweets such as this one from donald trump to then president obama in two thousand and thirteen he warned that nothing good would come to the u.s. from attacking syria apparently hindsight isn't twenty twenty once you get to the white house talking booga r.t. washington d.c. a short break we'll see which country is being blamed for increasing the number of drug addicts worldwide and why drain the drugs that we have put in of course
and you'll get. the old according to a just. world come along for the. an oil truck explosion has killed almost one hundred fifty people in eastern pakistan after it overturned on a motorway most of the victims had gathered around the vehicle despite police warnings not to in a bid to collect the leaking fuel or caught fire and exploded a spokesman for the rescue services said somebody tried to light a cigarette at the sea some eighty people were injured those in critical condition were airlifted by helicopter to hospital. american soldiers in afghanistan are being targeted by some of the very people that
have been training in two recent incidents three u.s. troops killed and seven more wounded by afghan government soldiers artie's what does if investigates. that camp in a joint afghan and nato military base. here that the taliban in for a traitor turned his gun on coalition troops injuring seven american soldiers everyone who knew him friends with him is now under investigation being questioned though the base itself is still operational and training continues what we can safely say is that from now on after this latest incident american troops will be looking at their afghan allies just that little bit more suspicion. green on blue attacks when afghan forces either infiltrators or defectors purposefully coalition troops it's been
a taliban tactic for years this is an achievement for the mujahideen who have managed to create mistrust among the enemy forces such attacks peaked during a bomb as troops it got super bad that the really wrote the book on security. so. you know now that our first american soldiers training afghans were assigned body gods then all coalition troops well ordered to have their weapons loaded at all times afghan recruits were made to go through an eight step vetting process while an inquisition like body purge to anyone it deemed radical yet here we are. some breaking news out of afghanistan three u.s. service members are dead a fourth wounded after a shooting reportedly carried out by a member of the afghan military seven u.s.
army soldiers that have been wounded in northern afghanistan now this comes a week after three west army soldiers were killed in a similar incident to a deadly attack on american soldiers two attacks in the span of a week childer with three soldiers killed seven wounded in a fire sure it's nothing like two thousand and twelve when green on blue violence killed or injured more than one hundred troops but the situation was different then there were fifteen times as many americans in afghanistan and the taliban was losing not so now i understand it's my responsibility we're not winning in afghanistan right now the taliban is resurgent taking over vast swaths of afghanistan islamic state is also spreading across the country the afghan army the coalition a beset by challenges. for another troop surge. some
additional forces from the united states who come to afghanistan to take part in training and advising our national forces if one hundred and forty thousand troops couldn't win this war what difference will four thousand make would be four thousand through two americans colonel defeat it. the taliban in afghanistan just want the fighting to continue so they can achieve their goals. with more american troops in afghanistan people will get more frustrated and insecurity will increase afghans a pessimistic they've heard it all before promises of security victory at the end of the day how do you win a war when you can't even tell which of your allies is going to shoot you in the back where. from kabul afghanistan. the muslims around the world are celebrating the end of the holy fasting month of ramadan russia is home to some twenty million muslims has the largest muslim
