this is the weekly news round up this sunday at r.t.e. international i'm kate partridge thank you for joining us. we start in the u.k. were at least six people including three children have been injured after a car plowed into pedestrians outside a sports center in the northeast city of newcastle a woman who'd been celebrating the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan was driving the car that hit the crowd outside the westgate sports center the center had been hosting the celebrations police say a forty two year old woman has been arrested but they don't believe the incident was terror related becomes a week after a man drove a van into people leaving a mosque in london an incident that is being classed as terrorism. going on meanwhile hundreds of people in london have been evacuated from their tower block homes amid fears of a repeat of the grandfather tower disaster more than thirty blocks have failed to fire safety tests across the country well the grunfeld tower disaster britain's
deadliest fire in over a century claimed at least seventy nine lives the fire was only put out more than twenty four hours later the prime minister to resign may admitted a government hasn't done enough to respond to the disaster but her apology didn't stop hundreds of protesters from across the u.k. demanding justice for the victims. the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without ribs 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 but i think that italy is only like. when they try engines in little did i miss my life when they. make choices but it.
was. was a key thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and laws need to be trying and why is the house so getting away with this sort of. big back. the i was there it was really treated like that what do you think two to reason why i should take all the blame for this we all introduce remote through all those people in the house of parliament i've got a good part to play for us or victims of the grand felt players may have been exposed not only to smoke and fire but also to a highly toxic gas that's according to expert analysis over the tragedy hospital report says they were treating three people from cyanide poisoning one of the most dangerous forms an expert has claimed the insulation boards used on the tower
produce a deadly gas when burned and the cladding which was highly flammable material used on the outside of the building is also under scrutiny. well to resume a has ordered a public inquiry into the tragedy and pledged an initial five million pounds to help the victims and assess it chuck and i went out in london asking whether the u.k. should rethink its spending priorities but british government is spending this money on certain things which speaks to think they're spending. with thirteen billion to the n.h.s. social care as in the seventy million user to social care that it is what they're spending on that. they're spending three hundred seventy maybe it only serves to get thoughts in sight your joy here and this is how much is going to the survivors of radical. left is actually shocking when you see like.
five then yeah. yeah. that's the fun to think about but they can spend three hundred seventy on the bottom in politics this book impose really need refurbished really. still says it's shameful shameful. well this week the u.k. also motwani a since it had to leave the european union the actual divorce talks have only just got underway the referendum result caused a political earthquake the 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 theresa may want to do strengthen her hand embrace of negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her standing in the u.k. is divorced 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 in full control of u.k.
borders and no 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 britain is better than a. no deal would be a very very bad out for now will britain needs to work out a new break to plan which is not easy but the divided parliament in the democratic unionist party which may hope 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 so we wait for second breaks that referendum not likely even labor are resigned to this break up like that except respects the result of the referendum there won't be a bluff you know come leaving. the conditions of the divorce agreements and now even more uncertain than ever and things seem to go from the normal messy been
mixed. well the process officially started when brussels received a letter from theresa may finally declaring the intention to leave the glow many british citizens still strongly oppose the decision to shut down the best airline go on friday only boyko takes us through the twists and turns of britain's rocky road to the 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 to resume aid to step up to the plate in the run up to the vote she had been a quiet remain but the desire to lead post brags that britain forced her to reconsider her position rex it means bricks it 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 made called an election in order to strengthen her hand in the braggs it talks but ended up refueling in the polls and losing her parliamentary majority her atrocious result meant that politically her 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 chaum created. what. can be
concluded quickly. threats again. 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.'s one hundred billion regs it vill guaranteeing the rights of citizens 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 reason may direct the responsible because she'd been head of the home office for six years before becoming prime minister. and with all the security and political chaos few people even notice that earlier this week briggs it negotiations officially kicked off but not in the way that london would have
hoped the british government's already been accused of caving into brussels over the braggs its schedule and opinion polls now show that if the country got to vote again it would reject leaving the u. so just like two reason may the plan for braggs it went from strong and stable to week and within the space of just one year. last go around this week that is halting military cooperation with washington over syria after the coalition shot down a syrian warplane last sunday russia's defense ministry warned it will now track any u.s. led coalition aircraft in western syria as potential targets and russia's foreign minister says the americans have some explaining to do. yes. because at least you see i want to see if there is 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. well the pentagon earlier claimed it had shut down the syrian jet in self-defense after it bombed u.s. backed militants but damascus says its plane was attacking islamic state while the syrian jet was downed near the meisel held city of rocca which is under siege by u.s. backed local troops it's not the first time the u.s. led coalition has targeted pro assad forces in the war zone last month in southern syria the coalition also bombed pro-government forces several times after accusing them of violating so-called de confliction zones or arties and so now it takes a closer look at the latest round. the u.s. shoots down as 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 why lence going on here d. as coalition speaking of deescalation after this self defense move the situation couldn't be worse russia and now considers all u.s. led coalition planes in the area a 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 iraq are now washington and moscow have locked horns in syria again focus has shifted and isis 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 and tensions flared
even further on tuesday after the u.s. led coalition shot down another syrian aircraft an unmanned drone the pentagon claimed the armed drone had been advancing on u.s. backed forces in southern syria and once again the coalition said the downing of the aircraft was motivated by self defense while analysts warn that washington is playing a dangerous game 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 the enemy skies with impunity and they feel threatened but also that 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 syria and that of course and who would spy. out of control his 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. 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 that don't want to have the cooperation between the u.s. and russia maybe not necessarily trump himself but i think you do not think is who was very anti russian in the administration a step by step but a trump is barreling down to the anti 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. and the tensions on the ground in syria are accompanied by anger at home with washington's latest military moves president trump's administration is facing criticism for breaking its pre-election vans to scale back foreign interventions this is illegal war at this
point then there's a 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 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 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 its 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 past 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 us from attacking syria apparently hindsight isn't twenty twenty one to get to the white house ducking guga r.t. washington d.c. . the cia chief now claims russian meddling has been going on far longer than previously thought that story coming up a short break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around
corporations corporations from washington to washington controls the media the media the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. but don't walk sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to do salt spreaders tell you that every gossip the tabloids buy fell. off of her eyes and tell me you are not cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along the border want.
them back cia chief mike pump a zero claims russian meddling in the us presidential elections was just part of a decades long efforts to undermine american democracy russia has always denied any interference will pay a statement comes in his first t.v. interview after taking up the post of cia director in january. i can't talk about the details of the intelligence but we have the intelligence committee has said that this election was meddled with by the russians in a way that is frankly not particular original they've been doing this for an awfully long time and we are decades into the russians trying to undermine american democracy i think a lot of actors try to exercise influence in the in the election i don't know the specifics of what russia may or may not have done and what other nations may or may not have done i think the facts are clear in the public domain that the democratic national committee try it may well have rigged the primary for hillary and did
their level best to tip the scales in the elections to a bigger issue is the degree to which the obama administration seems likely to have tried to tip the hand heavily in the favor of installing hillary clinton as a successor to barack obama that's something that really needs to be investigated. the final two green games of the twenty seventeen confederations cup have decided the last two semifinalists chile and germany when trail will now face portugal and mexico in the last four and it wore his new hobby and stan collymore in sochi. to sort of see the semifinal lineup is now complete let's cut to the chase is germany and it is chile who will complete the final four alongside me stan collymore you made some predictions earlier alongside nica the bear come on come on let's let's go a little bit more of course paul the octopus back in germany in two thousand and
six was very good nick of the berries get in there germany as we expected when the first game you go thought of is going to happen as of yesterday germany three cameroon one very good cameroon were in the first off apply very aggressive very youthful but the german quality kind of threw kerry during by t.s. off annoying piece first appearance of a conflict called first goal. cmos were in a watch out for the straw in the next twelve months he will be in the germany squad . for the world cup when the germans come back here peaceful two goals the first time a german high school two goals in the confederations cup and then of course it again chile against australia almost completely wrong to chile would have beast fairly comfortably a very strong chile and saw it against an australian side which is very useful for this exchange might be for the game and a really creditable draw from the australians let's just you know play some g.'s here and you can buy one from australia which was on the cards for the first forty five minutes so if i was a betting man and i'm not i would have german
a still against chile following germany get steyn so they want to be pleased with that ok let's bring in now mon both of these former australian aston villa's so many of the chelsea seven of the teams he playful and you know what he's an old paolo team and he also let you speak soon first what's happening sung. good evening meal good evening stan good to hear from me mate. great to hear from you obviously watch the game you've been in russia for the last couple of days that start with the football for us. very creditable australian performance today zaki their best performance today new manager for a very long time that was better than chile in the first half and they more than match them during the second half as well chile to be fair stepped up again second half and equalized rodriguez but overall a strike and feel very very proud of their performance there for a while there it looked as though the great upset was on obviously
a lot of people especially in the west australia very very concerned about traveling anywhere these days and i was different to come in here but i was wonderfully surprised that i live here in moscow which is absolutely mobbed the city the culture the architecture everything good bad is just first class but same pay this big i was there for nearly a week and that was absolutely at standing as well and the main concerns are obviously people lost. me about in australia is number one the security and security second set out it's absolutely world class the food has been fantastic the people have been very very helpful and so many people are now in australia now dying to tell me for the world cup there's only one thing that i think is wrong is that the taxi drivers drive too fast. but it's just really allow you to appreciate what this place has to offer summer and winter destination if you want to go on holiday beautiful beaches at the same time will class ski now did annoy the saudis to see how long it was going to try to get from the stadiums the arenas the sea level here wonderful sea level attractions to the olympics i left i'm sorry
