this is r.t. international coming live from moscow twenty four hours a day my name's you know neil welcome to the program our top story this hour facebook twitter you tube could be facing fines of up to fifty million euro in germany parliament's passed a law to tackle fake news on hate speech online with more from berlin here's our tease policy or a new bill has been passed that urges web giants such as facebook you tube and twitter to deal with the whole issue of fake news and potential hate speech now according to this bill a company has twenty four hours in which it must delete content that has been flagged as being potentially hate speech or fake news and the failure to do so well in a find that could be as high as fifty million euros now the proposal was put forward by the german minister. justice and consumer protection and it talks about
companies to be quoting obviously criminal offenses but of course the question remains to whom is this obvious and at the same time who decides what is fake news this is certainly not a hard and fast rule and it's not clear now there are concerns that the bull could lead to some form of censorship this is of course not the first time that regulation is being looked at as a way of dealing with so-called fake news earlier this year you had facebook setting up its own fact checking community now what facebook is doing is a using third party fact checkers and amongst these are the a.b.c. and the associated press but the problem is that even these so-called fact checkers are accused of not being impartial and this has left the public very angry who chooses the fracture or is a somewhat older expression of the same sentiment goes who will guard the guards.
facebook is here to say you will so that will tell you when to believe the news all notes i am so grateful no more research for me should make things so much easier now in april google acted against fake news as well creating a use the tools to deal with misleading content but the bottom line is such a have some very serious problems who determines what is fake news what is fake news and ultimately how do you prevent this whole evaluation leading to censorship earlier we spoke to european security and global trends expert matthew burrows he sees the best way to fight fake news is to separate fact from opinion on hate speech it may be easier to do because obviously you can look at whatever is being said usually there it's very clear it's hate speech and you know there's going to be a lot of argument over whether something is fake news or maybe somebody is opinion
i mean when there is a when you can say that something that was portrayed as fact. which was not true and which was known to be true when it was put out there in the media then i think you probably have a way of. going to court prosecuting the media company but it's more probably a. better tact is the have a bigger discussion that we're beginning to have on fake news talk about cases where there has been a using get news organizations themselves to to step up and fact check more but also make sure that they're separating opinion from fact they may have opinion but they need to label that as opinion. the iraqi prime minister has declared victory over a slow mixtape saying the army has recaptured the. 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 the city itself but also the lives of hundreds of thousands of locals. within minutes of mosul's liberation headlines right around the world were dominated by the recapturing of the city iraq's prime minister is declaring it and . in mosul the end of the caliphate in iraq supposed claim as it takes mosul
a messy mosque iraqi forces say they've taken an iconic mosque in the heart of mosul that was destroyed by isis iraqi forces battle the last i think fighters in those all. well in what is undoubtedly a victory in ridding iraq of the scourge of ice as it is important to remember they effect on the people of mosul murat gaz the of our correspondents 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 leaders have abandoned fighters to die local fighters are being left to rot where they fall were 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 if you hear a 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. little bit
little along with the surface one had your garbage comment. that is that then i am sure i actually am. happy and of the time many of you tell. salamat benefit that i've been the fall again of now much a lot of thought of me. like that. streets and buildings can be restored lives canales children families whole neighborhoods was sacrificed to us strikes in the liberation isis made sure that civilians died they used them as human shields hoping that the coalition would stop its s. 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 one hundred civilians i remember clearly how they tried but failed to contain that at 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 it's not our fault that we're killing civilians they said we'll remember this as a victory the liberation of mosul. but liberation may be the wrong.
for we can cross live now to baghdad to speak to unicef's representative in iraq peter hall conspiratory welcome to the program and before we get on to today a statement coming from you and your group about the number of children who have been trapped in areas still held by us just on what their rights are correspondent i believe you could hear what he was saying in terms of the civilian cost that the
loss of lives in the operation to to free mosul is there any clarification as to how many lives were lost. now it's very difficult to say at the moment and i'm delighted last we still haven't got the full facts yet but all will children of the innocent victims of any war and in this particular war to those children trying to still trapped in west mosul are in dire need of protection and this is what we're calling for will civilians be able to return to their homes considering the devastation of the city the pictures we're looking at just look absolutely grotesque i suppose to put it simply is it livable nonetheless allowed all. well we said the same thing about ramadi and mosul is is the western part of mosul is no different whole way of life has been taken away from the people but the resilience of these people and especially those children in ramadi educational services pool
started to open very quickly and started to offer a ray of hope for the people returning in the east in mosul over three hundred fifty schools are now open they started to open within a hundred days of the conflict the whole reached three there. it is possible but the devastation of west mosul is extreme to people have been damaged psychosocial care of these children has to be our concern and that's what we are going to start with all our partners are trying to address at the moment. and we have heard that nine hundred thousand almost nine hundred believe people will be displaced how do you believe humanitarian organizations in the area cat can help then we've already started to we are aging to go starts to set up camps outside of mosul to accommodate the displaced coming coming out in the south and providing water child friendly spaces to children and. to resume their normal way of life with
educational for the filipinos facilities who problem now is that these one hundred thousand people of the sheer scale of it and the time length of time that they have been displaced which is going to affect so our planning procedures that are in place but the fact that over the next three months or perhaps longer we're going to have to continue to look after these places because there are enormous strain on our resources it's a stunning figure close to one million people of course do civilians in a is a last stronghold in syria iraq did they face a similar situation to the one in mosul. it's difficult to say and we're not privy to what is happening there but just as they removed this last bit slower we can over the next few days the plight of children and their protection has got to be. every day two of them are coming out unaccompanied trying to reunify them with
their families trying to remove back into the group of families if their immediate families are more of very little but it's their protection they have the innocent victims of this conflict and their protection were good moves so must we at the top of our list of the most yanis we've seen in iraq and syria before of course when terrorists are beaten they just don't slide or slink into the shadows they leave a lot of problems and terror for the people left behind well thank you very much for giving us your take there from baghdad unicef representative in iraq peter hawkins. of the u.n. chemical weapons watch dog house confirmed that the victims of a chemical incident in syria is it province back in april were exposed to sarin gal's the latest statement from the o.p.c. w. also points i thought their fact finding missions monday does not include identifying the perpetrator the thirteen was on able to visit the actual site of
the attack so the report's conclusions are based on post-mortems biomedical samples collected from victims who were moved to post a neighboring country the report hasn't been made public but was shared with countries party to the chemical weapons convention russia's foreign minister had this to say on the. but if it is a it was a position you should be organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has been acting unintelligibly it refused to go to the scene of the incident and did not provide any information yesterday the issued a report it says they're not convinced that sarin gas which was apparently found was dropped by a bomb from the air they don't know where the sun came from and yet throughout these months tensions have been inflamed. well this by the british foreign secretary boris johnson rapidly reacted to the findings by reasserting accusations against the syrian government i got absolutely no doubt that the finger points at
the assad regime and we've got a european council coming up where we will drive on with the u.k. campaign to impose sanctions on those responsible the us has already brought out sanctions on three hundred people as a result of this people who drop chemical weapons on innocent people should be held to account. the russian foreign ministry has sharply criticized washington's claims that syria's government is planning to carry out a future chemical attack in the country the ministry is concerned that terrorists could take advantage of the threats coming from washington and carry out false flag attacks to encourage u.s. military action and went to the u.s. state department to get their response. the u.s. officials refused to confirm the claims with any facts the situation looks like a massive probation both male tree 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 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 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 that'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 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 as evidence kids share
with us about this potential preparation for these 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 it's evidence of. intelligence i'm not going to get into that one 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 o.p.c. w. 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 regardless of having any actual proof or evidence. to stem the tide of refugees the details right after this.
a little. twenty minutes into the program your welcome back italy is threatening to close its ports to migrant rescue ships operated by n.g.o.s which it suspects are being exploited by people traffickers the country has been increasingly struggling in recent months with tens of thousands of refugees reaching its shores. was. the one i was reading writing. was.
only a tell me in prime minister say's the country is being forced to take drastic measures and wants his neighbors to help. this message doesn't come from a contrary that wants to break the rules all abandon its commentary and position its a contrary that is under pressure and which asks. for a concrete contribution money if you can give up limited i'd like to say that we launch how to address this issue. obviously we have to discuss the issue together we do believe we can't leave find that it's only grease on the sound prime minister gentle loney also stressed that his country's bearing the brunt of caring for migrants under the new rules refugees need to apply for asylum in the first member nation that they enter now that places an enormous burden on its sleep because of its proximity to north africa from where many boats arrive and there's also tension on it police northern border this week around four hundred refugees clashed with
police near a time where they were trying to cross into fronts the tunnels being labelled italy's many calley in reference to the huge migrant camp once find out the northern french border police used tear gas against the refugees who tried to use a river to bypass the park. we talked to a former italian diplomat and former head of the european security monitoring organization the oas see he ses the e.u. should do more to help italy deal with the refugee crisis because elective the european last fall it's nice to be. more i think you want to touch down the shoulder he's not to. say it's. too close look for sure shapers we clearly stating that the telecom to be the only destination that i can see is to
go where the power is my brother said so it's a natural force for this issue with the european and major national. for a t.v. channel video cameras have been giving c.n.n. for a few headaches this week after a string of embarrassments over the network's russia coverage the investigative journalism group project vera tells us now released a new video showing c.n.n. president jeff zucker trying to make a quick escape while being challenged this is mr suckers resins on thirty to sixty fourth street in new york city the same. comments about russia story. ok that was pretty cowardly there wasn't. a project veritas published a clip a few days ago showing a c.n.n. producer admitting russia stories are a by chasing ratings and then another featuring one of the channels contributors describing russia coverage as
a nothing burger today's crosstalk takes up by how developed they are in r.t. people can talk about it in these terms of oh it's this big nothing it's not a big nothing and you know why he and joan said what stupid thing he said you know you'll have to ask him again oh yeah basically if you're on your air is just stupid ok that's the explanation there is no journalism in the leftist media there is no journalism in the mainstream media which is the same thing it's the leftist media this from the beginning this russian nonsense has been just that nonsense and c n n n m s n b c saw a spike in their ratings immediately so they're keeping it going with the project very tad's video is those approved or film for c.n.n. c.n.n. is. that zucker. production you will see the ultimate three zing out this is the denouement the epilogue that
carlota. britain's security. services are facing legal action over the prime minister's secret orders to british spies the cases being brought by campaign groups reprieve privacy international comes after the government refused to reveal details of the existence of secret policy directions they are prime ministerial orders given to the intelligence services three have been made one covered the interrogation of detainees held in another country by the cake another was on the humbling of both personal data by the intelligence agencies the third is shrouded in secrecy the suspicion is 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 intrudes if 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 well this comes amid prime minister trees amaze controversal plans to crack down on tech companies and regulate privacy in the internet the initiative could allow the secret services access to private information on phones and also web browsing history now we asked people in london what they would be willing to give up for the sake of security what kind of privacy could you be giving up. your skirt. also quite a terrible. message that you send to your friends but i hope they get to know pretty well i hardly use them anyway so it's not really that big a deal i'm more concerned about my chodron i'm all happened to them in the future. not just randomly. is all i'm doing is having normal conversations about you know what your kids are doing stuff but often. she'll see. it
but 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 but a g.p.s. location. the program anyway. doesn't mean to suppose it could triangulate puts you cell phone 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 if it was for security i want us to know but not for anything else and lastly what about surveillance at home for example for your smart t.v. or something absolutely against that but i get up to all the rest of my family get up to an hour in time is entirely alright just a bit too much to know. how to not that i wouldn't feel like that if it is it might have my hair my dad might have missed my car so whatever the view from london tied up next sophie shevardnadze meets next adviser to both the former u.s.
president ronald reagan and the dalai lama to discuss the syrian call. in a revealing video c.n.n. has shown as many critics have claimed the network is more interested in the bottom line and a political agenda rather than reporting on real news we have asked c n n's evidence free war against donald trump is really at the expense of real journalism. the private companies were sixty or seventy billion dollars. left. who are going to parachute in.
billion dollars for. others a lot of people speculating that the core business model. and this is going to go the way a. billion dollars. will come to so if. there were this syrian conflict escalating. around the world between major player more complex leaders of confrontation where our interests collide well we're talk to military strategist and adviser to presidents ole over the world.
