italy has been under huge pressure and it's now asking for more decisive action from the e.u. dorothy used to have french really tackled this crisis. a correspondent shot a hole to be italian island of sicily where charles being one of the main points of a rival for african migrants i should talk to locals who say they all fed up with
the an auction 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 would be the first time they setting foot in surrey 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. i don't know. eighty cents it's only the loan but the shia believe the mind thinks this is the man detained and it's now having to come to be cheeky here on the island sicily and people on this island say they feel abandoned by the. local who it is not just the responsibility of italy is the responsibility of europe there is far too much immigration it's really cannot. supports all the arriving migrants. they do
nothing because their ball issues don't work they just. pitch it bad they don't have to have italy we're bearing the financial burden game jesus we are the states france saying we have their part in the mind because his prime minister gentle honest everyone turns away and pretends not to see what to do nothing is wrong europe needs to help out while the european union has provided financial aid it says it's not enough and now e.u. of said the big bad cools by italy so open up that along the mediterranean coast such as say falls in spain but that is likely to be met with great resistance in both countries and some people suggest that what the commission is saying is little more than. some countries need to do more to do their
share in distributing the refugee problem in hungary and 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. solidarity with the italian government and the italian people and we will make available possible assistance and support it seems there's a lot of us who are very little from the powers that be in the europe i know meanwhile italy is continue to sing and the strain of the crisis. sicily. and while italy says it's tired of bearing the brunt of migrants french police have been using drones dogs to hunt down those trying to slip over the border from italy into frogs in superior university history professor. who says it's time for italy's european partners to do more to deal with the crisis.
he is being left alone. now is not that 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 we do you pm you. call per day you should have done the more. i know glamorizing in system. or. if you'll go all of the african calls so we have to find a solution which might be radical solution to see it all the ports closed but also the people. the un's chemical weapons watchdog has published a report into a deadly chemical incident in syria's province and while it doesn't attribute any blame that has not stopped western officials from renewing accusations towards the
syrian government it also turns out the o p c w didn't even visit the site of the alleged attack and washington reports we've been waiting for this for months 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 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 that 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 a group within. dubious reputation now the report doesn't even give
a hint as to how the chemical agent was dispersed this lack of information prompted a strong response from russia's foreign minister at the news that supposedly should you have built in a zation for the prohibition of chemical weapons has been absent 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 i've got. 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
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 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 little expressions. like the team was on the table so they don't. use it i don't think was the ball. we were unable to determine
where. the fill tool set is so the. teacher called the. book saw the. fuel bills there with both feet that we can't books in just creates. these missions is the mission so. just this serious and good if it was texans to smile. davies that mission and that these are people that. it was impossible to implement the chain not past the point the key. for samples from the schools and they really didn't. reach really is a bit of something. you can work somebody
a boarding school when somebody. just absolutely no evidence cole it will build. it up imposter and moscow new job and legislation branding both fake news and online terrorist propaganda as criminal activity has been hit with a storm of criticism not least in the country's parliament of the green party for example says social media firms may overregulate those of violating people's freedom of expression to potentially avoid any threat of paying billions of euros in fines. partridge has more on the potential consequences of. 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 begins the initiative ends the internet law of the jungle fine flagging up terror. propaganda
is fairly obvious but determining what's hate speech and the truth behind media outlets accused of fake news is anything but ever wonder what fake news is i'm not going to give you a question you are fake do headlines and soon and you're in the guardian there effective this whole notion of election or voting fraud this is take notes. doesn't today fake sites born strolls can falsify your viewpoints the russian government or the creator to spread fake news and conspiracies across the social media landscape as for hate speech different countries have different laws what many might consider hate another nation might consider an opinion the german bill office 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
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 government seek to impose their own lore on the internet there disregarding other borders with their own version of what's obviously illegal the new rules mean companies will have twenty four hours to remove the content facebook has already revealed some eight thousand employees will be directed to check flagged posts with two billion users on facebook alone there are concerns that web giants in general may be overwhelmed by the complaints or we reached out to facebook for comment the company told us that legislation is the wrong way to fight online hate speech with regulation threatening to remove content that is not actually illegal and we discuss the issue with mattel you bugger me from the political activist group shout out u.k. he believes the risks leading to censorship. everywhere you look on the internet
there is how each beat hate speech 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 fru fru this kind of lens now becomes quite dangerous that is 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 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's them. another case of police brutality has been making the headlines in america it's off the video where most of an officer in atlanta beating a suspect he claimed was about to smoke a crack pipe however no drug paraphernalia was ever found on the victim just to warn you you may find the following footage distressing. was. the incident happened just over a week ago the video shows the officer punching the back of the man's head while he's being held down the police report into the incident claims the suspect had resisted arrest for possessing a crack pipe of atlanta's police chief says the situation was avoidable the officer
has been placed on administrative leave for twenty days but activists say that is just 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 so all are our client but to smoke crack however during the occupation and even after there was never any narcotics no crack cocaine from home and i think it's important to note that this officer has a history and reputation on beating on people in the also resolve report who said that they tried to use a taser and so when you use a taser to be in it was deemed not 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 what was in the report and so the video speaks for itself. say the police are
increasingly targeting that community. thinking all right. well you. know you got to stay right here you got. this is a culture that happens in policing and it must be addressed a lot of times along force when they have this them versus us mentality or we're above or better than most people like you know when it as it pertains to law and so long for smith officers are not law they don't get to be 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. it it's an international thanks for joining us on this saturday morning here in moscow now the u.s. ambassador to the united nations comparing iran to a scorpion will describe that story in
a moment. what politicians do something to them. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go right to the press this is what before three of them or can't be good. interested always in the waters in the. first. i've negotiated with the palestinians under oath official and unofficial it's for hundreds and thousands of years what i have seen is that by the syrian. border not being. kind. to you every time that we reach
a juncture in which there was a possibility the result would be the this team has just walked away. thanks for joining us here on aussie international but the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared iran to a school piano at the center of mosques 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 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 asks 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. it's not that at the time top american officials have used this kind of rhetoric when describing other nations the cia's former director james clapper has been fairly outspoken in the past about russians . the storable practices of the russians. typically. genetically driven to coopt. penetrate. 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 true or. you would think it's in their d.n.a. . we discussed this kind of rhetoric from top u.s. officials with media analyst lionel 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 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 a russian hacking and russian interference even though there was none but people kept saying it were nikki haley is there telling her read this no matter what happens read this and say this above the scorpion read it i'll read it it says no no matter what happens no matter what iran is doing i don't want to 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. a new one point four billion dollar arms deal sealed by president trump with taiwan has sparked fieri and china which argues that the move to contradict earlier pledges by the trump administration. about you that taiwan is an inseparable part of china we firmly oppose the export of arms to taiwan and we stress that nobody can weaken or determination to uphold the territorial integrity and sovereignty and we oppose any external interference in the domestic affairs we urge the u.s. to abide by its commitment to the one china principle and to stop to taiwan and military contacts in order to avoid further damage to our relations and enable corp in other fields the new deal includes multiple types of a missile iles torpedoes technical support history and much criticism not least because the us does not even recognize taiwan as
a sovereign state although the current administration is no different from its predecessor and in sending arms to taiwan experts say trumps honeymoon period with china might soon be over the business of your approach every u.s. president is going to do that and china obviously will protest but this business is who you are it does not mean that has a fundamentally different taiwan policy i mean it's not a major shift of america's one china policy the u.s. is not interesting in seeing was security power so there's nothing about that but what will be interesting at this moment will be i mean if you look back over what from said last year in history is that they probably will challenge one china policy and he want to make it we negotiate everything but the me few months later they come back to stick to serve your person in the us president is going to do with one china policy so what he's doing now i don't think there is
a fundamentally shift from the from from spaces or over taiwan if you look. i. feel. as i go. help. so although i think the wider question will be. between. the chinese president xi jinping and almost half a year into presidency the world still trying to work out just what his policy is towards both china and taiwan and here at r.t. we've been taking a look at the headline. china china made a lot of money which shows through china china china i don't want china dictating to me. very extraordinary phone call between the president elect and the president of taiwan.
to honor the united states longstanding commitment to the one china policy white house says president under the one china policy. so 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 of the tournament i mean. who arrived in russia on friday and shared his thoughts with john. but if you look at russian mission i think anyone would want to be the manager.
i think our will to defend our lands makes us strong and i don't think that the us can dominate the world anymore especially not with countries like russia china and north korea the u.s. cannot play sheriff we have our own guns to answer there is nobody wants a war but when you look at cartoon characters like donald trump you have to wonder whether he might get something into his hat and turn us into enemies when i do join us this evening with the latest from the confederation's cup. that's all the hard news for now we're back in half an hour with more for the meantime though you can get all the news stories and many languages at all if you thought the meantime though international law redacted tonight looking at how comedians well bullied by the media during the elections thanks for joining us.
there's a saying. i think they're on the cheap. and then prove it come true so let's . get right. to a skeptic he said if you ever do to. this country. this is what we don't understand how we are in such. a. similar. if the minutes of not got to. do with the phone. with the plane. would come back to the place story you have to see.
a health care debate sure there are red faced politicians screaming about one make believe side of the other but that doesn't mean there's a legitimate debate it's kind of like alex jones radio show like i get that it exists somewhere and then a certain number of people who don't watch properly listen to it like. i know it's out there but i don't really acknowledge it's a thing that matters. not even alex jones believes what he says matters no seriously seriously in court recently his lawyer said on his behalf he's playing a character he has a performance artist. yes he's impersonating an internet troll who's medications are not interacting well. anyway in order for there to be a health care debate there needs to be two sides with some merit that can be argued about right but that's nowhere to be found in the health care debate right.
