the hawks we all. know what. syria accuse israel of aiding terrorists after the i.d.f. bombs syrian troops for the second time in two days as damascus soldiers battled with yeah he's bringing up a spade and all that coming up to we hear from a us democratic congresswoman who is pushing the stalled washington arming militants in syria. each time we have these wars it has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups. and russian investigators say the perpetrators of the same petersburg metro bombing in april used the encrypted messaging service telegram to plan and carry out the atrocity.
very good afternoon for me kevin i we just turned one in the afternoon here in moscow this is an international if you just choose our top story the conflict in syria has taken a dangerous new turn over the past weekend with the israeli military bombing syrian government troops for the second time in as many days a middle east correspondent paula sleeze got the latest from tel aviv. israelis claim that these strikes are in retaliation for cross border shelling from the syrian military earlier this morning monday they were again reports that idea of tanks had fired across the border after another round of mortar fire from syria landed in the israeli side of the golan heights but the israeli army has since said that these reports of foles however regarding the earlier two incidents of syrian shells landing in israel there's been no proof that in fact it was the syrian military that fired those shells damascus has said that its forces are currently
battling jabhat al nusra terrorists in the area so there's no way to pinpoint exactly who fired the shells damascus has now accused israel of effectively providing cover for the terrorists by bombing the syrian military is one of course has been illegally according to the international community occupying the golan heights since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven israel's bombing of the syrian government forces comes just a week after the u.s. u.s. led coalition shot down as syrian military jet and an manned drone u.s. officials often say that they like to lead by example and in this case it seems to apply to what israel is not doing when the united states and its allies target the syrian military with impunity and that of course stands a signal to other countries that they might be able to get away with the same kind of thing and as i mentioned the syrian government is fighting it out on the street terrorists near the border because well well this might just be another example worth noting because russia has recently accused the u.s.
of failing to target this very same terrorist group but. we can't forget that since the beginning of this crisis we have strongly felt that. contrast with for whatever reason was not targeted by a u.s. department. would be americans i will be taking up the issue with rex tillerson once again as the lead future now russia hold to its military cooperation in syria with the u.s. led coalition after the downing on. that syrian fighter jet last week and this latest escalation from israel's bombing of the syrian military is a slippery slope for this international which is being fought on so soil. we used to promote jim just trust told us the timing of the israeli strikes on the syrian military here is suspicious the things is one thing for the israelis to say that they will protect their border that's lead because the question what the status of the golan is the bigger question is this is there is there something more behind
this then just the israelis responding to what they meant as an errant lending of syrian missiles on their side of the border the anti-government forces in syria are on the road that the the basques government is making great gains that there has concerned these terrorist forces by as we know saudi arabia qatar and these other countries with the silent backing of israel and of course the participation of the united states are in big trouble and are these really what that means is and they are quite clear about this that they don't want to see forces allied with iran on their border particularly hizbollah and i think that's the real concern that they're expressing through this action whether it will grow into something major i don't know meanwhile the u.s. government's agenda in syria is coming under increasing scrutiny on capitol hill we can reveal democratic lawmaker told. he's trying to push through a controversial bill through congress that would pressure washington to stop
bombing syrian rebels she's visited syria on a fact finding mission earlier this year so far though a draft so excited to the support of fourteen the u.s. will make his. we must stop this madness we must stop arming terrorists i'm introducing the stop arming terrorist act today to prohibit taxpayer dollars from being used to support terrorists he caught up with the u.s. congresswoman she was at nancy tedder a conference in new york. and many others are working hard to continue to build support for this legislation with the goal of getting it passed and ending this policy i think that there has been a concerted effort to both on the part of some in the media as well as many in politics and many in our foreign policy establishment who have been advocating for a continuance of these regime change wars really ignoring the fact of what has been the consequence of these wars in countries like iraq and libya and syria where each
time we have these wars it has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups like al qaeda or the creation of isis and it has resulted in a tremendous amount of suffering and death from the people of these countries. six police officers have been injured in london after a protest against police brutality to four people were arrested. recently. i. know that there. was. no of course. well we are
at this. protest that was peaceful and it up tatting violence and six police officers were injured as a result it will stall sade's last night but it carried on into the early hours of the morning and protesters throwing rate would be and they would be able to as well and they were trying to build a reason they were saying. angry was they were demonstrating over the death of a twenty five year old local black man his name was. he was known as ed said he was a comic cannick he was pulled over by police when he was in his car earlier this month and campaigners say he was brutally beaten some reports even that he may have died as a result of his neck being brain dead and he died in hospital six days off of that initial incident with the police so the protesters that way had last night saying
that all they want to know is how mr de costa died take a listen. we just. if we can give you answers. their family members will cry you more will cry you. that's a lot. to commute to be. trying. to get what we. call the metropolitan police have said in a statement that as he was being detained mr de paul still became well they've also been found that no police officer has been suspended and that every result of this incident with mr de costa the police won't stop here in the u.k. is investigating what led to his death the independent police complaints commission and they've already said that in the initial post mortem carried out on mr hasn't
indicated that he died from spinal injuries roy a big discrepancy the between what the victim's friends and the police initially. from london. more fortunate for martin jol would winning journalist let's start with you know why the discrepancy do you think i mean the victims' families we just claiming the. broken you suffered head injuries in a permanent police complaints commission says a preliminary examination failed to establish quote a big discrepancy why. that's a tough question to ask at this stage with that we just don't know but i think perhaps the answer the question we should be asking is how independent is the i.p.c.c. i mean please police units investigating colleagues for potentially months which is not ideal is it so does does this discrepancy is the honest think the families the
recent royals their credibility going about it into. well i think so yeah i mean we would there's a lack of accountability they have they don't seem to have made any real symbolic gesture to suspending any offices and we should also look at the history i mean if you have to go back to two thousand and eleven this is not the first time a black individual's been arrested in this died on police custody in the u.k. so i think that raises a lot of important question marks and i think the family deserve answers and deserve them in a proper form and we saw the anger of those people. we just brought it up yourself we saw what kicked off back in twenty eleven in london of a mark duggan that his death shot killed by police in in talks on north london and boy didn't it kick off we saw the huge riots there that seemed to be almost spontaneously coming out and nothing very quick very fierce worries this kind of
thing might happen again no. yes it may well do i mean. if you look at the black lives matter the whole issue that's beginning to permeate into it now we're seeing a lot of people social media. get behind that i think the problem of institutionalized racism in the in the british police is an demick and i think this is just one one more ugly example so i think that the all eyes now will be on the police commissioner to see if we can contain this and so on to resume a let's let's not forget the reason may is buckling a government is having a very hard time indeed containing terror attacks and and and and this sort of irregularities so we also need much more governance among clear and better answers about what happened to this young man and we don't know the actual facts of investigations are continuing cause you look at so many cases reported so regularly of police brutality in the united states also in france is just the way it is these
days the police get tougher because therefore we what is the what is bringing it on the police have to get tougher because they're facing more violence or are they just getting. less marshaled in the way they would deal with this other thing. well i think the problem is they're under greater pressure i mean in britain in particular with the police around facing more cuts so i'm in the same job with less money and the pressure from the public and the pressure from a new wave of terror attacks is making things easier for them so they're under extraordinary strains now when i mentioned earlier institutionalized racism if you look at the statistics in britain you're twenty eight times more likely to be arrested as a black man as a caucasian and i think come the pressure in the strain affects some of those police officers and you know the knee jerk reaction is to is to overreact was the black community. martin thanks for giving us your. thoughts worldwide in german
says you were always a pleasure to see on the show thank you. new director of the cia is devoted a few minutes of his first t.v. interview on national network television in america to rather familiar story accusations that russia meddled in the u.s. presidential elections on the go again he believes in fact has been going on for decades trying to undermine american democracy russian of course has always denied any interference 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 however if the cia chief isn't tired of accusing the kremlin seems many americans are these days newly released poll suggests that more than half of the people surveyed would like to see congress and the media focus on other issues such
as health care for example we got expert opinion on the allegations against russia from john mcafee no less he created the first commercial antivirus software for nasa to he says the u.s. elections could have been hurt by anyone that so easy it was. russia has been seriously abused by america and certainly our american pop government and politicians over the false accusations of russia tried to hack our election i know for a fact that russia did not hack the d.n.c. source absolutely not yet all of our politicians all of them are going crazy about us the russians tried to hack us they tried to control us we had a report from homeland security here in america that actually included the malware the software that was used for the hack well myself and hundreds of other
researchers have looked at that and discovered that it's a very common piece of malware called p a s web shell it was it was collected from a website that only asked for donations and it was six versions old and even the newest version only sells for fifty dollars now i ask you please people do you believe that the russian government cannot afford to pay even fifty dollars if they wanted to buy software that they would go to a donated site where you didn't have to pay anything it was it was some teenager a random teenager somewhere in the world that did this coming up in the next ninety seconds encrypted messaging apps back in the spotlight over the use by terrorists this morning investigators say they've made a key find in a simply does but metro bombing probe will tell you all about it. that's.
that you do like to be that's what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the water. i get invested it is looking into some petersburg metro bombing in april so the attack and there's a compass is used a controversial encrypted messaging service to plan and carry out the atrocity of what details earlier from a correspondent in a patrol. the telegram messaging app is famous for its outstanding levels of privacy with all the encryption but the secret chats just to remind you almost three months ago a suicide bomber killed fifteen people in the st petersburg metro and the investigation into that got to the point when the russian federal security service are saying that at all stages of the preparation both the attacker and whoever
assisted him in russia and abroad were using telegram another thing that they are saying is that telegram with all its encryption features has become the most widely used app by terrorist organizations in russia when it comes to messaging now just a little earlier russia's communications regulator zor said that it could be days away from blocking telegram russian authorities have demanded that the telegram team provide access to the chats and their crypto keys when and if needed to which the founder of said no and he also added that the privacy and the people's right to it is more important than the fear of terrorism the course is not just telegram there are others as well that a guest could conceivably be used by terrorists as well there's the general public
that's got nothing to do with terrorism and genuinely they really praised all the new features that these tech thing ops are now like telegram are offering with the new levels of privacy but the authorities are on high alert and they're absolutely not happy with these loopholes and perhaps that is justified because to research organizations have published at least one hundred reports of the hottest organizations using telegram in the past you were saying that there are other apps that are grading their encryption facilities like watson app developers of that got on. in the u.k. after the terrorist attacks in britain and that was criticism on a very high profile level companies to develop tools to identify and remove harmful materials automatically i want to see them reports this content to the all storage is and block the uses to spread it there should be no place for terrorists to hide we need to make sure that organizations like whatsapp and there are plenty of
others like that don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other we need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted whatsapp have been but the great threat is still out there and since the number of terrorist attacks in europe has only been increasing i guess it is fair to say that the authorities failed to contain it and now they are saying that the only way for them to do it is get access to the chats and crypto keys so in the near future we are bound to hear more debate on that the usual thing security versus proxy. tell you police of dozens of refugees who are trying to cross the country's border and enter france the clashes erupted near the italian city of and million on sunday night after the confrontation some migrants then took to a river to the temple bypass a police barricade the refugee crisis is one of the issues which the former european commission president jose manuel barroso has been discussing with those sophie shevardnadze the full interview is here throughout the day. for us it seems
like there is a wedge between the west and east because of the situation and to us it also seems like work said in large part happened because of the migrants you ation jane don't feel like the migrant situation you know grabbing a. real problem. first of all for the migrants and for the refugees that's a real treasure when europeans i mean let's put things in context when some of my colleagues in europe say that we have a good big problem i say look our problem is nothing called bear we do. well that are suffering and they are dying for the disease so we have to help these people so let's begin to see it as a problem for europe it isn't the issue that we have to settle but by the way it's no better than two years ago. so this is twenty sixteen presidential campaign donald trump has been doing time
time again promising to bring the nation to get. i say it is time for us to come together as one united people we may have our differences we are strongest when we are unified good plan but the divisions appear to have deepened since last year's election pitting not only political opponents but even us states no against each other as reports. liberal california is unhappy with some of its conservative sister states its ban state sponsored travel to texas alabama south dakota and kentucky with north carolina mississippi kansas and tennessee already on the list these sanctions of sorts are bringing up some interesting historical memory. california says that it's taking this action in response to what it says is discrimination against lesbian gay bisexual and transgender people each of those
states in the recent weeks have been acted legislation that may deprive some of the individuals of those states and individuals who visit those states of their constitutional rights there are consequences to discrimination restricting state sponsored travel is a consequence i think they're just trying to cause infighting in the u.s. i think be all to make goal of liberals in some kind of civil war and that's where that's their goal at least for the lone star state is fighting back taxes along with twelve other states is threatening to sue california for its climate change initiative. which discloses companies investments in fossil fuels now the governor of california has announced that he is ready to fight against the republicans in d.c. california and other states and other provinces throughout the world will step up there's already been talk of a calyx that are this liberal state behemoth breaking away from the rest of the country seem to be escalating right now in a war of words between the conservative forces in california california is more to
the left of the trump agenda of the nation so right now california is one of the more progressive states in this country and not to be outdone a few texans are now raising the idea of secession and raising the lone star flag once again we are advocating for texas leaving the union we've been doing this now for well over a day and we've you know in this last legislative session we came closer and we've never come before there are going to be states that are going to be leaving the union and it's going to happen sooner rather than later if you pay attention to american politics it's pretty clear that folks don't see eye to eye but are we really getting back to civil war levels where we all can't be one country some folks certainly think so and the gap between the liberal and conservative states is only getting bigger tale of my art see new york i'll leave you without thought coming up after the break going to go next to you kim a closer look at the british prime minister's two big battlegrounds right now those
bricks a trying to stay in power. about your sudden passing i found the just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last bang turn. your act. would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i know. when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about more like it was a cave still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death and this one
