up with the inaction of europe's authorities this is one of the many. brings rescue migrants from the mediterranean sea to ports like this one here in sicily and for many of those migrants this will be the first time they setting foot on u.s. soil but the italian authorities say there's so many migrants coming here to italy that they might have to close the ports to microchips like this. eighty sites it's the well but the shia believe the. man detained and it's now happened to be cheeky here on the city and people on this island say they feel abandoned by the new. it is not just the responsibility of italy is the responsibility of europe where there is far too much immigration it's really cannot
1:04 am
support all the arriving migrants on board they do nothing because their policies don't work they just. never know but they don't have to have italy where bearing the financial burden came to the states from spain and others to do their part in helping them iran's because as prime minister gentle honest everyone turns away and pretends not to see what to do nothing is wrong europe needs to help out around the european union has provided financial aid to it says it's not enough and now e.u. will make this upset the big bad cools by italy to open up the ports along coast such as say in. spain but that is likely to be met with great resistance in both countries and some people suggest that what you commission is saying is little more than. some countries need to do more to do their

share in distributing the refugee problem hungry in the czech republic have not accepted a single refugee from. unfortunately we have no progress on the question of distribution of migrants within the european union and we stand in solidarity with the italian government and the italian people and we will make available all possible assistance and support it seems there's a lot of but very little action from the powers that be in europe imo meanwhile italy is continuing to sink and the strain of the michael crisis. sicily and while italy says it's tired of bearing the brunt of migrants french police have been using drones and dogs to hunt down those trying to slip across the border from italy to france in super universe. study history professor paolo botha d.n.a. says it's time for european partners to do more to deal with the crisis. situation
1:06 am
is being left alone. now is not is not able to deal with these of these. among the local population and the local population who is with the with the government and with the rupee and you. say you should have done more to have done more i know the housing it system looms or. if you look and all of the african coals so we have to find a solution which might be radical solution to see it off the courts closed paulson who ran. the un's chemical weapons what you're reporting to a deadly chemical incident and province and while there doesn't attribute any blame western officials reaffirming about accusations towards the assad government it
1:07 am
also turns out the o p c w didn't even visit the site of the alleged attack. we've been waiting for this for months in italy a province back in april the chemical attack triggered all kinds of accusations and allegations but not many answers but now we have the seventy eight page report from the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog so did we get those answers first of all the investigators never actually visited the site of the chemical weapons attack in question the illiad province where the attack took place is not in an area under the control of the government so it wasn't safe to go there and that raises another question u.n. officials said the report was carried out in full compliance with the guidelines but the guidelines clearly state they must visit the site where it happened so their conclusions were based on interviews they did with. people claiming to be victims as well as samples they received from n.g.o.s like the white helmets are group with a dubious reputation now the report doesn't even give
1:08 am
a hint as to how the chemical agent was dispersed this lack of information prompted a strong response from russia's foreign minister is that supposedly should he built in a zation 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 from the air they don't know where the sun came from and yet throughout these months tensions have been inflamed now the report was never intended to establish who carried out the attack that's being left to another group of investigators but this hasn't stopped western leaders from reeling in their old mantra. the finger points at the but sad 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
1:09 am
sanctions on three hundred people as a result of this people who drop chemical weapons on innocent people should be held to account we know that assad has used chemical weapons on his own people and he's done that repeatedly including it states against the world that includes women and children destruction and we have all seen that we have all seen the video and there is no debate about that so once again we've got more questions and no definitive answer but for some people that just doesn't matter. r.t. washington d.c. we discussed the findings of the report with russia's representative to the un's nuclear watchdog. there are expressions in the suit like the team was on the able to all the team they will all of these it daunting force of all the were unable

1:11 am
and they just absolutely no evidence coal it will deal with. new german legislation branding both fake news and online terrorist propaganda as criminal activity has been hit with a storm of criticism not least inside the country's parliament and the green party for example says social media firms may overregulate thus violating people's freedom of expression just to avoid potentially any threat of paying billions of euros in fines. more on the potential consequences. germany has approved a bill to find social media networks up to fifty million euros if they fail to remove what's described as obviously illegal content hate speech terrorist propaganda and defamatory fake news freedom of speech and criminal law begins the initiative ends the internet law of the jungle fine flagging up terrorist propaganda is fairly obvious but determining what's hate speech and the truth
1:12 am
behind media outlets accused of fake news is anything but ever wonder what phil accuses i am not going to give you a portion you are straight do headlines and zoom zoom in the guardian very effective this whole notion of election voting fraud this is fake news doesn't today fake sites boortz trolls can falsify viewpoints the russian government also created and spread fake news and conspiracies across the social media landscape as for hate speech different countries have different laws what germany might consider hate another nation might consider opinion the german bill offers this guideline social platforms have to ban what's obviously illegal but obvious for whom germany's bill is part of a wider trend an austrian court ordered facebook to remove hate speech posts against one of the country's politicians not only in austria but worldwide and
1:13 am
canada's top court ruled google can remove entire websites from its global search engines following one complex case so it seems in this online age borders don't matter the boundaries still do and when some governments seek to impose their own lore on the internet they're disregarding other borders with their own version of what's obviously illegal the new rules mean companies will have twenty four hours after notification of quote obvious potentially threatening content to remove the material first because already revealed some eight thousand employees will be directed to check the flagpole. but with two billion registered users on facebook alone there are concerns that web giants may be overwhelmed by the complaints now we've reached out to facebook for comment but the company told us that legislation is this kind of legislation is the wrong way to fight online hate speech with regulation threatening to remove content that is not actually illegal to discuss the issue with mattel your book i mean the founder of the political activist group
1:14 am
shout out u.k. he believes the risks leading to censorship. everywhere you look on the internet there is how each beat hate speech for defamation law and those kind of things but there is a problem when you start to try and tell private enterprise corporations to try and do it and then there's also this issue that you've got to find what it is you know for someone hate speech may be actually true for all vice versa you know how do you define what actually is a reality in every single newspaper or news network out of the sun has a slant of some kind or another part of the problem where you've got a government which is essentially trying to do that for the people who are saying well this is this we don't regard as new so we're going to get rid of that for you we're going to get rid of that and you need to watch this kind of news and i look at it only frou frou this kind of lens now becomes quite dangerous phase essentially censorship you can call it regulation you can call it whatever you want but the reality is essentially a ship because you are censoring a certain point of view or a certain set of knew when i was
1:15 am
a she just because you don't deem them as as fair or or factually correct the establishment is worried about the internet you know the internet is this one place where everybody everybody in the world can essentially have a voice they see that as as the centralized they see it as almost anarchic and for that i think it scares them. another case of police brutality has were making headlines in america it's off the video in most of an officer in atlanta beating a suspect he claimed was about to smoke a crack pipe however no drug was ever found on the victim i should warn you you may find the following footage distressing. of this incident happened just over a week ago at the video seems to show the officer punching the back of the man's head right there reportedly three times while the others hold him down now the
1:16 am
police report into the incident claims the suspect had resisted of arrest for possessing a crack pipe of atlanta police department chief says the situation was avoidable the officer has been placed on administrative leave twenty days but the greater atlanta president of black lives matter told r.t. it's disrespectful to the victim. twenty days a suspension certainly kicks justice in the eye and definitely is a insult to the victim the officers alleging that they saw our our client but to smoke crack however during the altercation and even after there was never any narcotics or no crack cocaine follow and i think it's important to note that this officer has a history and reputation on beating on people and he also has our report who said that they tried to use the taser and so when you use a taser to be in it was dean non-effective what makes you think that your hands are sufficient that makes no sense and so there's a lot of inconsistencies i don't accuracies with the police officer's testimony and
1:17 am
what was in the report and so the video speaks for itself so just the latest incident of increasing what some people are saying as a wiring increase in police brutality in that country. i thought. all right. well you. know you can see right here you can't. this is a culture that happens in policing and it must be addressed a lot of times along force where they had this them versus us mentality or were above or better than most people like you know when it as it pertains to law and so long for some it officers are not the law they don't get to be so become the judge the jury in executing right that's not their job their job is to enforce the law the chief of police is their responsibility to come out and say hey we got it wrong but we're willing to correct the issue that's joining us so far here not
1:18 am
international today still lots of your stories coming your way including other u.s. ambassador to the united nations compares iran to a scorpion more on that off to the park. one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber
1:19 am
crime is attribute who did it why did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks i mean you've mentioned one across the recent won't run somewhere attack it's still unclear where that originated from so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything. nearly twenty posterity moscow that the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared iran to a scorpion in robotics about the country's nuclear disarmament. the topic of iranian regimes compliance with its international obligations reminds me of the fable of the scorpion and the frog. the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the river the frog quite rationally asked how do i know you won't
1:20 am
sting me and the scorpion replies because it would kill both of us we'd both drown . so the frog is convinced he lets the scorpion get on its back and starts across the river but sure enough midway through the scorpion stings him with his last breath the frog asked why and the scorpion replies because it's in my nature. the secretary general's report is filled with devastating evidence of the nature of the iranian regime. not the first time a top american officials have used interesting rhetoric when describing other nations of the cia's former director james clapper was once fairly outspoken about the genetics of russians the storable practices of the russians. typically almost genetically driven to coopt. penetrate.
1:21 am
to gain favor whatever is there any reason to believe that russia is not continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations individuals or drew or. you would think it's in their d.n.a. . we discussed the rhetoric from top u.s. officials with the legal and media analyst live. when the i.a.e.a. and the and the u.n. and everyone is saying that as far as they know iran seems to be in compliance what is the narrative that haley is talking about you know this reminds me of something and i and i hate to bring it up we saw it recently what it's like when you keep saying that there was russian hacking and russian interference even though there was none but people kept saying well look you only if they're telling your read this no matter what happens read this and say this above the scorpion read it
1:22 am
i'll read it it says no no matter what happens no matter what iran is doing no matter what the u.n. in the are you say nikki haley is not going to to veer from her script that's what it seems like to many the observer. but u.k. prime minister has rejected widespread calls to resign despite of falling ratings so a group of activists decided to get coverage when they got together on facebook to arrange an event with the optimistic title to resolve may's leaving drinks it was supposed to happen in a small pub in london but off the thousands signed up the party was moved to st james' park. now the prime minister is facing a growing backlash over the handling of the deadly ground. her refusal to lift a seven year cap on public sector salaries and her strategy. went to meet the people hoping to guide me to the exit.
1:23 am
well we're to gathering that stuff to reset means leaving drinks which obviously is an imaginary events where people have gathered to celebrate the british prime minister leaving downing street and while it's clear that's theresa may has indicated that she's not going anywhere the people gathering here are saying it's time for her to go to resign my still still prime minister but at the end of the day with. she you know she's very much we couldn't she called achieve the things she wanted to achieve in this soft snap general election which is actually come a blunder in the face i just think that she doesn't make any and i think that i really like to keep believing and that's good for the person i think that she's just protecting one very. kind of rich people who think that she should go and so we just have. a long. well i don't think she will but i think it's
1:24 am
important people come together. in a situation that is really all for which he was the biggest mistake. because obviously there have been some several. lack of compassion. on so many left. standing the general populace. want to get a super majority that was the idea of a snap election and it's been a complete humiliation for that you know she made a self over election was held maybe next week probably be seeing. interviewed one of the organizers of the event and going on the ground you can watch the full show but also you talk. she's lost the trust of the country that we think we think that the result represents a rejection of oversteer it represents a rejection of further cuts in privatisation the whole tory policy which obviously
1:25 am
became more and more important despite huge bias in her favor in terms of the mainstream media and a whole institution throwing their weight behind. the conservatives and still they failed to gain a mature in this is to me that people are rejecting the idea that is the media and that the conservatives in food know they need to step in and they need to resign immediately. the football confederation's cup bringing together some of the world's top teams has now reached the knockout stages we're covering all the action both on and off the pitch with neil harvey and stan collymore joining us from st petersburg one of the four host cities opportunity and you can join us this evening with the latest from the confederations cup and. i'm all about the latest on the story just go on to wate dot com and i'll do stay with us for the meantime here are reporting a village in india located on top of a constantly bunning underground coal field but if you're joining us from the u.k.
