these are the hawks that we along with are on walking. as iraqi prime minister declares the defeat of islamic state in mosul we look at how many lives it took to seal that they. will go to the slums threatens to shut off its ports to unofficial migrant rescue ships and get seeded backing for it too as the country struggles to cope with the continued influx. of french town's mayor sparked outrage by wanting to make for obligatory on every school lunch menu to promote he says a more secular society we get views from both sides of the divide later in the program on the house of secure is a some people who are clearly racist people are trying to help build this principle it's not about racism or islamophobia or whatever this is all just
creating communities within the french society if we must not underestimate the threat that this can represent to french society. by the midday moscow this is the thirtieth of june twenty seventh kevin zero in our top story the iraqi prime minister has declared victory over islamic state saying the army has recaptured the al-noor a mosque in mosul which is where isis declared a caliphate three years ago but months of heavy fighting between the terrorists and the u.s. led coalition have devastated not only that city itself but also the lives of hundreds of thousands of locals.
within minutes of mosul's liberation headlines around the world were dominated by the recapturing of that city. iraq's prime minister is declaring an end to isis in mosul the end of the caliphate iraq's bold claim as it takes mosul famous mosque iraqi forces say they've taken an iconic mosque in the heart of mosul that was destroyed by isis iraqi forces battled the last isis fighters in those or in what is undoubtedly a victory in ridding iraq of the scourge of isis it's important to remember too the effect on the people of mosul our correspondent in regards to spent over a month there during the battle liberation that's one way of putting it obliteration is the not the goal was noble enough three
thousands from isis isis the so-called caliphate is crumbling wiedersehen abandoned fighters to die local fighters are being left to rot where they fall remaining inexperienced fighters are making rookie mistakes growing them selves and fellow fighters up accidentally in preparation for combat mission accomplished mosul has been cleansed by fire a city almost the size of a room reduced to rubble it is difficult to describe you've got to be there walk down it's blasted streets and you'll feel it this is what the off the mouth of a classic strike in mosul look like view here really epitomizes what mosul has been through the neighboring street all but destroyed the street across rubble
the street over there it's the same story wherever you look the press was tightly controlled no freedom of reporting in mosul. we saw what we were allowed to see but this was enough. i knew little do a little alone would deploy this one hundred got it coming. that is that then i am saying. at the end of the time many of you tell us that animal that i've been the fall again all of now much. thought of the. devil in me. not like the. streets and buildings can be restored lives canales children families whole
neighborhoods was sacrificed to where strikes in the liberation isis made sure that civilians died they used them as human shields hoping that the coalition would stop its strikes they miscalculated the bombs rained down until the end two billion casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation when a single u.s. led air strike killed more than a hundred civilians i remember clearly how they tried but failed to contain that but first they blamed isis then they admitted to the bombing but still blame diocese perhaps civilians are being killed either by mistake or because the enemy is using a tactic that actually has them become part of the target that is on them not on us
you know the news is lunch time the russian foreign ministry shop lee criticized washington's claims that syria's government is planning a chemical attack in the country the minister is concerned that terrorists could take advantage of the threats coming from washington and carry a full fledged attacks to encourage u.s. military action next not his kind of mopin goes to the u.s. state department to get their response to that. the u.s. officials refused to confirm the claims with any facts that the situation looks like a massive program creation easy both male training and information no. i look at the u.s. experts and then he said openly the extremists could use these claims by washington provocations and shift the blame onto the syrian government recent statement from the white house alleging that the syrian government was planning an upcoming chemical attack are you concerned that that could have created an opening for terrorist groups to carry out a chemical attack. now you're not
concerned even though. the groups have been using chemical weapons in syria it's documented now next went on syria seems that washington doesn't share the concerns of russia's foreign minister now on numerous occasions the syrian government has been accused of carrying out chemical weapons attacks the most recent example was in april in italy a province without any investigation with the united states launched fifty nine cruise missiles against syria targeting an airbase now when they were pressed for facts of the state department responded this way evidence kids share with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons because that was an absolutely right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do what you say is evidence of. intelligence i'm not going to get into that with you but
this is a very serious and grave matter let's remember that back in twenty thirteen an agreement was arranged by russia in which the syrian government turned over their chemical weapons to the open sea international bodies oversaw the process in which the chemical weapons were handed over to international authorities however these facts don't seem to matter the united states continues to blame syria for chemical attacks rigged. having any actual proof or evidence. in other news there was a shift the prohibition of chemical weapons meantime confirmed the victims of a chemical incident in april in canseco were exposed to sarin gas the report doesn't identify who's responsible for the alleged attack though political commentator historian addled says u.s. intelligence is selective over syria this suggests that their intelligence sort of core seeing the regime is about to use chemical weapons which is actually the biggest believe if they have got this level of intelligence how
come they still haven't found out who is supplying eisel with arms and finance for three years now so every time i am they seem to be really decisive battle against those just eyes again as the other islam as we see the united states would either have an air strike against the government forces or doing some kind of stopping these are vod i think is some kind of dirty deal is going in the bag around. italy is trying to close its ports to margaret rescue ships operated by n.g.o.s which it suspects are being exploited by people traffickers the countries being increasingly struggling in recent months with tens of thousands of refugees still reaching its shores. was. i.
was was one of the. italian prime minister says the country's been forced to take drastic measures and wants his e.u. neighbors now to help. this message doesn't come from a country that wants to break the rules or bend and it's a humanitarian position it's a country that is under pressure and which asks our european allies for a concrete contribution money that they can give up limited i'd like to say that we want to help drastic issue to dissolution please if you can obviously we have to discuss the issue together we do believe we can't leave italy or greece and he sounds italian prime minister also stressed that his country is bearing the brunt of caring for migrants that's because under e.u. rules refugees need to apply for asylum in the first member nation they enter bad news that for italy that places an enormous burden on my country because of its
close proximity to northern italy to do so with many of these boats arrive italian journalist says his country is being left to cope alone. italy has been left behind by the country's european union so far was not very effective on tackling this problem i mean they keep saying that they will not like italy alone but in fact all the measures that they have forecast all who tried to take were not affected by the other thing is that all the big majority of the immigrants be remediated on good to other countries the majority of the italian people and they get the majority of the european people believe that this huge grecian of people is not acceptable anymore they are not willing to receive more immigrants equally or in europe and this is quite worrying because if these trends will not be stopped the risk of
a social crisis a social tensions with russian patients we see europeans and immigrants will become increasingly higher and higher. in related news meantime still in europe tension of the migration issues been rising in neighboring france this week around four hundred read. fiji's clashed with police near a northern italian town when they try to cross into the border with france the town's been dubbed italy's mini kalai and reference to the huge migrant camp once found at the northern fringe paul kelly. police used tear gas against the refugees who tried to use the river to bypass the barricade caused a lot of disruption there earlier. and so going to france the mayor of one french town says he's going to put pork on every school lunch menu to promote a more secular society but critics say it's instead going to spread intolerance and marginalize religious groups. we are putting an operation in place so the children
eat everything and their diets are balanced there is too much waste so we will teach them to eat meat meat poultry or pork today we're talking about secularism in a generally anti muslim way we see secularism as a tool of tolerance and living together and nothing exclusion any people who refuses to eat pork should feel east we have both sides of the divide which came down to a battle between integration and intolerance for the mayor who has decided that it is there is no tentative for the poor it's a way to say that we don't care about the muslim faith or the jew faith because jew jewish people don't eat pork also so it is very bizarre to notice that in that they want us to look at the country mayor who are a representative who has decided to not respect the law he's deciding to do this as the representative of his constituents and so this is the first elements of democratic process second of all i think we must not underestimate the threat that
this can represent to french society i mean definitely there is a problem with into really integration of of migrants of one part of the muslim community and i definitely think that right now he can no it's not the good time for the muslim community to be starting to ask for specific diets because what's the next step was the limit were is the school where everybody goes to school and it's normally and just has a food just have an ordinary meal this is the first point let's get back to islam first you can ask for specific meals then what are you going to ask for now the thing is that on behalf of security reason some people are who are clearly racist people are trying to handle this principle we're just not about racism in our islamophobia whatever this is about just creating communities within the french society french society is not going well the mayor is saying that to there's a cost behind that are the other people of this town ready to pay for that cost there's a cost as an organization also when you buy muslim food in some. condition specific
conditions you are paying back part of this or the money you're paying is going out to the muslim community do the inhabitants of this town want to be indirectly funding islam a cultural centers or moscow stuff like that where is the limit we just go to school this is not a place to say we can just pick or choose and leave if you want dishes various you know i'm sorry that in france you can have your way hosley peace and then you let people speak you know you know you just a fundamental in your answer yes why don't why don't let me just say when that's all you are about just that i can't administer a shit and go to muslims almost you are saying that muslim people want to have their own rule that's not true that's completely false that we french muslim citizens want to be equal we don't want to have more we don't want to have less also and you have to make sure that's disguised as consideration is just helping more stigmatization that's a good way to make sure that we're all living together rather had had british spies on dubious missions we look at what the promise is keep it keep them quiet.
war against donald trump is really at the expense of real journalism. with us today britain's security services are facing legal action over the prime minister's secret orders to pretty spies the cases being brought by campaign groups reprieve and privacy international it comes off the government refused to reveal details of the existence of secret policy known as directions their prime ministerial orders given to the intelligence services three of the maid one covered the interrogation of detainees held in another country by the u.k. another was on the handling of bulk personal data by the intelligence services and the third is tried it in secrecy giving suspicion that the british government is hiding human rights violations. we know the secret policy hides
a large area of activity that is at least as serious and intrusive as interrogating detainees overseas and the mass collection of personal data the prime minister needs to tell the british public what her government is up to this comes amid prime minister to resign may's controversial plans to crack down on tech companies to regulate privacy of the internet now the initiative could allow the secret services access to private information on phones or web browsing history for instance we went out into the streets of london to ask people what they'd be willing to give up or not for the sake of security what kind of privacy would you give up for. the story. also quite a little. bit but messages that you send to your friends well i hope they get to know pretty. i hardly use them anyway so it's not really that big a deal i'm more concerned about my children and what happened to them in the future when they grow up not just randomly you know not bothering to somebody checks is
all i'm doing is having normal conversations about you know what the kids are doing but often the government should see. everything what about the government having access to your browsing history i think i've got nothing to hide i mean i kind of think it's happening already anyway i wouldn't object to it so much what about your g.p.s. location. would probably have anyway. doesn't bother me because above me pick a triangular. data so whether you know you've given permission to access your location or not used to do it i think that's a step too far if it was for security. you know but not for anything else and lastly what about surveillance at home for example or your smart t.v. or something absolutely again that i get up to all the rest of my family get up to in our own home is entirely all right just a little bit too much to know. now tonight that that is what is said
my hair and my hair my and my how much my castle or whatever. develop a new so small within the last few hours the german parliament voted in favor of legalizing marriage and adoption for same sex couples it's likely to become more than before the end of the year chancellor merkel voted against the move herself but it was her efforts that paved the way for the snap vote take place europe correspondent next explains how far she's been ready to change of use in order to sleep in a job. it's almost nailed on that angle merkel will take the top job germany's election this year that would be her fourth term as chancellor but in order to do that she's almost certainly going to have to form a coalition government and potential suitors will they all come with their own demands it all boils down to what concessions for all merkel is willing to make if she's to go for a so-called grand coalition with the social democrats who are the second largest party and she's going to have to legalize same sex marriage that's
a good analogy this means or ways of life. are included in this and that's why we want to bring about same sex marriage in our future government. i will not sign any coalition agreement in which same sex marriage is not featured. but the social democrats represent under merkel's biggest challenge in this upcoming election and they'll be looking to try and form a government of their own if they can however a softening of her stance on gay marriage opens up a potential coalition with the green party for the incumbent german chancellor device you might have marriage but everyone thirty times would have placed this request thirty times it's been looked at and thirty times nothing happened but now we come to merkel and say that this is a matter of conscience if the green party don't get enough seats in order to form a coalition with it it doesn't look like they will do then the free democrats could also join not to make a three party coalition however the free democrats are likely to ask for something
that i'm going to may not be too keen to give and it's an issue that in the bundestag moment they want to see a pulling back of security services when it comes to their retention of digital data they also want to see less c.c.t.v. video surveillance being set up and widened across germany these are all issues that angela merkel's unlikely to give ground on for four years civil liberties of had no advocates in the grand coalition so which way will the chancellor bend since two thousand and five her party has refused to grant equal rights to same sex couples when it comes to marriage but after twelve years in power she may have to change some of her ideas if she's to remain there peter all of a r.t. believe. a final thought for me this half hour of news for you a glimpse of life one hospital in the solve proclaimed republic of donetsk in
eastern ukraine and its ongoing difficulties in trying to care look after cancer patients from both sides of the conflict. the. principal can do you question the community when you french foreign ministry said mrs bush but none of them got back the money from your minimum three beseems from public interest. you know parcel sure. as all the stores. would be the.
people doing the best in difficult circumstances this is arts international thanks being with us coming up after the break there's an indian city built on a cold the field that's been smoldering ever since a blaze there more than a century ago you hear me right well today locals riskily death to provide for their families in our area listen to their unique stories coming up next. we have learned something in the muslim world view i don't have dictatorship and therefore i don't think there's any interest in the movie anymore big paper. most people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice or the biggest read in truth
to stand out news business you just need as the right questions and demand the right answer. question. if there's the situation. of the private company where sixty or seventy billion dollars a lot of. negatives are leaving or have left the c.e.o. who are going to parachute in possibly. according to c.s. it and so that i'm sure will be another hundred million dollars he's already a billionaire. on a billion dollars for her regardless of whether or not there's a lot of people speculating that the underlying core business model of the liver is unsustainable and this is going to go the way of enron as multi billion dollars.
