a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionist party to support her minority government. we have reached an agreement with the conservative party on support for government in parliament this agreement. to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this time the tory government has promised to invest an additional one billion pounds in northern ireland the agreement will also see trees in may by truck on a number of election pledges including reforms to pensions and benefits while the signing off for ten downing street has surprise some as the do you have backtracked on previous policies. breaks down the deal for us it's been over two weeks now since this crash and burn snap election called by theresa may that took place on june eighth leaving the country with an unexpected hung parliament and now it looks like we do indeed have a deal between to rescind may's conservative party and the democratic unionists of
northern ireland in terms of what specifically has been agreed we do know that the g.o.p. have been promised one billion pounds within the next several years of financial support and one stepping stone that's been quite important and watch since we do know that the do you have been quite insistent on not being huge fans of a hard brags that we have heard now that they have agreed that an exit from the e.u. will benefit all parts of the u.k. a document that they have released doesn't get into very much detail this is an agreement that so-called can feel confidence and supply which is a bit of a different format and even with the way that statements have been made on how this deal was reached we did see the do you peel leader speak separately there was no joint press conference so certainly we're just going to be waiting for theresa may to address this deal later on. opposition m.p. for the labor party has called the deal rages on an attempt to stay in power by
throwing money out the north of ireland we got reaction from two political analysts . g.'s it managed to get this group b. little coalition together but the do you pretty whole ten see she's still a minority government i think she's going to have real problems lasting kerry called it at the weekend has said that he thinks he'll be prime minister by christmas i certainly think they'll be an election by october i think she'll find it very very difficult to hold this government together because don't forget she's got to be pleased to see you please she's also got a really. divided party and the conservative party is still massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is breaks it out of the e.u. so it might make you a little bit was more secure for a few days but this is no and i think it bites that obviously makes position more secure because with the do you pray they have a working majority of thirteen of course you don't know your ploys to confidence
and supply matters government isn't going to get much of a legislative program through but that was over didn't in the thin nature of the queen's speech clearly the conservatives wanted to win this triple locum pensions and they also want to means test the winter flow if you will announce that he's paid to pensioners those particular promises and also the so-called dimentia tax the new social care policies rufo very unpopular with the electorate so in a sense it's save the conservatives what could have been a great deal of trouble with some of their own supporters who are very unhappy about these changes it's going to make it more difficult for the conservatives to balance the books which they're having problems with anyway in terms of trying to reduce the budget deficit to a manageable level. living on the conflict in syria has seen a potentially dangerous new development with the israeli military bombing syrian government positions for the second time in as many days or mideast correspondent paula slee reports 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 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 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 noting because russia has recently accused the u.s. of failing to target this very same terrorist group. we're still seeing a case of double standards from what we've seen in the fight against terrorism in syria were under the impression that these so-called. you know whatever it's called now is being speared on every occasion by the u.s. led coalition and its allies now russia hold to its military cooperation in syria with a u.s. led coalition after the downing of that syrian fighter jet last week
a. this latest escalation from israel's bombing of the syrian military is a slippery slope for this truly international conflict which is being fought on so . former u.s. diplomat jim jefferies thinks the timing of the israeli strikes on the syrian military is suspicious it's one thing for the israelis to say that they will protect their border that's leave because aside 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 ropes that the the basques government is making great gains that there is concern to 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 through these really what that means is that
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 democratic lawmakers is attempting to push a controversial bill through congress that would prevent washington from arming terrorists on their allies in syria but also visited they war torn country and a fact finding mission earlier in the year however so far draft has only attracted the support of fourteen other u.s. lawmakers. we must stop this madness we must stop arming terrorists i'm introducing the stop arming terrorist act today to prohibit taxpayer dollars for being used to support terrorists or to the u.s. congresswoman how she views the situation. conference in new york this was
a response i 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 to 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 turned violent the rally saw protesters expressing their anger at the death of a black man following a traffic stop with the details for us here paul you boy. let me. have a. look at. it all started last night but it carried on into the early hours of the morning and protesters here were throwing break the mounted police station they were throwing a beer bottles as well and they were trying to access the building the reason they were so angry was they were demonstrating over the death of a twenty five year old local black man his name was federico holster locally 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 broken and he died in hospital six days off of that initial incident with the police so the protesters that we had last night said it was saying that all they want to know is how mr de costa died take a lesson be broken. if we can give you all says. their family members will cry you mobile cry you should live. show from the way. it was going to buy if you don't see that the police should have called more and you will be different but some people feel that they will take you into their own hands so many people are putting the police cover up the corruption who will prosecute you nobody so really and truly you can blame the public for being angry
and upset but obviously this is a sensitive issue because we know that these things are happening on the cover you know behind closed doors and many people are not good. here what's actually going on on the street people say well you know it doesn't happen anymore racism is not like it was. it's still going on it's happening just behind closed doors all the metropolitan police have said in a statement that as he was being detained mr became well they've also been found that no police officer has been suspended and 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 pace more carried out on mr de costa hasn't indicated that he died from spinal injuries we got reaction from women
bennett from the unite against fascism group he sees it often proves difficult for anyone in authority to be held to account but i think there's a real problem with the number of black men. after an encounter with the police and there's far too many of a thousand people have died at the hands of the police of the last ten years to a year and all these unexplained and usually the victim is to blame and we think that something is terribly going wrong in terms of the impact of the police in the black community the police officers have not been suspended and we think this is a gross misconduct in any other occupation if you were involved in the death of somebody you'd be suspended until there was actually clear evidence that you were not involved in the killing otherwise what you have set up is a system in which there is a difference of people that have been involved in wrongdoing and there's no means of bringing them to account in other words the police judge themselves to be
innocent and there's no way of actually proving the it's a cover up because these deaths keep happening and nobody's ever held responsible for them. russian hackers are back in the headlines this time in the u.k. that story and more just. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around corporations corporations from washington to washington. voters elected to businessman to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. the war hawks selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they don't need. to do socks for the
tell you that would be gossip and probably worthwhile for the reporters today. the bad guys and tell me you are not cool enough to buy their products. the hawks that we along with all the. welcome back to the program the u.k.'s guardian newspaper has suggested russia is the main suspect of a cyber attack on the british parliament which targeted n.p.c. emails on sunday up to ninety a concert compromised as a result of the hack more than ten thousand people were told to change their passwords and politicians were also denied access to the emails on the vices
outside of westminster political analyst chris bambery says that the spike the absence of proof the media came to presented us fact you have to start by saying there's no hard evidence whatsoever the russian government is behind this this is a suspicion suspicion has been presented almost this fact and so much of the bridge british media but i think also any of you and i want to think about who might have it in for the british government internationally and the list of coper it would be a very lengthy one indeed to give britain's involvement in various wars and adventures around the world so why it narrows down to russia i don't really know i mean no north korea has also been mentioned it was seemed to me that what information you get from m.p.'s mailbag is more useful to those interested in cry rather than national security. russian investigators looking into the sim
petersburg metro bombing in april say via tucker and his accomplices used the encrypted messaging service to plan and carry out the atrocity kevin on went over the details with the train career. 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 this in 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 and when it comes to messaging now just
a little earlier russia's communications regulator ross called nodes or 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 watch 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 other as well that a guess could conceivably be used by terrorists as well there's the general public that's got nothing to do with terrorism and genuinely really praised all the new features that these take this thing out so 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 two 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. under fire in the u.k. after the terrorist attacks in britain and that was criticism on a very high profile level we want companies to develop tools to identify and remove harmful materials automatically i want to see them report this file contents 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 kevan but the great threat is still out there and since the number of terrorist attacks in europe has only been increased 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 think security versus probably. at least center right parties delivered a significant blow to the center left government in these my world elections center right parties made gains in six out of twenty five key policies one of the biggest victories was in the northern port city of genoa which has been a traditional left wing stronghold for more than half a century. reports. this looks like a resoundingly victory for center right parties and a big blow to the ruling democratic party which is a center left coalition now what we've seen in this is that many of the winners who were from center right parties were actually backed by a former prime minister silvio berlusconi very famous a man who was ousted from parliament back in two thousand and thirteen over
a tax fraud conviction now what people are suggesting is that these results could see an overwhelming call for the center right parties to reunite into one party to be a force at that general election which i must take place before may of twenty eighteen now that comes of the many voters say that they are disaffected and unhappy with the current government which is led by the democratic party that center left party and that's because of three main issues one of them is the migration of italy is seeing thousands of migrants coming into its shores mainly on areas like the island of lampedusa with people arriving from north africa and italy struggling to deal with that it's also been struggling to deal with a timid economy for many. employments currently it around eleven or twelve percent and more than that its banking sector is being in dire straits for many is bad debts in the banking center account for around
a third of the total debt in the eurozone that's three hundred and fifty billion euros and just on sunday two for the banks have to be bailed out yet again to the tune of more billions of euros and many people are unhappy about that so the suggestion is if somebody like silvio berlusconi can overturn his ban be able to run again for public office can reunite sort of the center right parties then we could see a dramatic shift in politics before the next year is over that's the in italy now because italian police have fired tear gas at dozens of refugees who are trying to cross the border to get into the. fronts the clashes erupted in northern italy near the port city of genoa some migrants even tried to cross the river in an attempt to bypass a police or a kate the refugee crisis is among the issues which former european commission president jose manuel barroso has been discussing with sophie shevardnadze and you can watch the full interview later today. for us it seems like there is
a wedge between the west and east because of the migrant purchase situation and to us it also seems like work said in large part happened because of the my current situation jane nothing like the migrant situation you know grabbing the. real problem. first of all for the migrants and for the refugees that's a real treasure that. i mean let's put things in context when some of my colleagues in europe say that we have a problem i say look our problem is nothing called bear we do promote people that are suffering and they are dying in the military the disease so we have to help these people so let's be straight as a problem for a year or two sheedy's it is an issue that we have to settle but by the way it's no better than two years ago. that's a good reminder of that news coming into us from the u.s.
the american supreme court has partially allowed donald trump so-called muslim travel to come into effect in new immigration rules affect people from six predominantly muslim states iran libya somalia sudan syria yemen or according to the ruling people with no relationship to anyone in the u.s. will now no longer be able to enter the troubled ministration against the lower court's decision to block the immigration order since the beginning of this year yeah the u.s. presence repeatedly accused judges we know of being politicized that the supreme court has a. if you that in october so that's so-called muslim travel ban to go into effect partially ok the ramifications of the guitar crisis are in focus next in.
who she's old enough to post the center of. the law i. told. you a little of both of those. you. just. have to leave the last of. the bucket. list i don't know that might. sell for what they sell but oh. but the investigative police officers behavior as well. i'll take drugs and weapons and albatrosses here. calling me people i do.
