italy has been on the huge pressure now austin for more decisive action from the e.u. already used to finally tackle this crisis. our correspondent who traveled to the italian island of sicily which has become one of the main points now of a rifle for african migrants if you talk to locals who say they are fed up with the
inaction of europe's authorities this is one of the many. brings rescued migrants mediterranean sea to ports like this one here in sicily and for many of those migrants this will be the first time setting foot on u.s. soil but the italian authorities say there's so many migrants coming here italy that they might have to close the roads to microchips like this. was. a to meet says it's the well but the she. might think it's landed and that it's now happened to be cheeky here on the sicily 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 there is far too much immigration italy cannot support all the arriving migrants and they do nothing
because their policies don't work they just talk. they have to have italy where bearing the financial burden you know i want other states from spain and others to do their part in helping the migrants because this prime minister gentleman is that everyone turns away and pretends not to see to do nothing is wrong europe needs to help all that while the european union has provided financial aid to italy it says it's not enough and now e.u. who make this have said that they cools by italy to open up the ports along the mediterranean coast such as say in france and in barcelona in spain but that is likely to be met with great resistance in both countries and some people suggest that what the european commission is saying is little more than hope.
some countries need to do more to do their share in distributing the refugees poland 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 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 poor but very little action from the powers that be in europe imo meanwhile italy is continuing to sink under the strain of the michael crisis charlotte. r.t. sicily. and well at least says it's tired of bearing the brunt of migrants french police supernews ing drones and dogs to hunt down those trying to slip across the border from italy to france and in super university history professor paolo bernardino he says it's as well after time now for at least a european partners to work harder to finish the crisis.
being left alone. now is not is not able to deal with these and more these create. among the local population and the local population who is with the with the government and we do pm you. you know the. day you should have done the more. i know glamorizing in system acceptance 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 all the ports closed but also the people who are. the un's chemical weapons watch dog because published a report into a deadly chemical incident and serious problems well that doesn't attribute any
blame that's not stopped western officials from renewing their accusations towards the syrian government also turns out they didn't even visit the site of the alleged attack in washington. 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 with a. 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 he 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 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 the 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 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 caleb 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 pull the team they will all of these. daunting force of all we were unable
to will determine where. the feel cool will. lead. teachin all the. side the. source of fuel for speed kills. two three we can't books interpret. these missions is the mission so. just the serious imperfect actions to put it mildly. there is a mission and that is these are people that. it was impossible to implement the chain not past the point the team. samples from the schools and he says they really didn't but. some things. you can do by
somebody or more to. somebody and they just absolutely no evidence cole it will deal with. you drum 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 the green party for example says social media may overregulate violating people's freedom of expression to potentially avoid any threat of paying billions of euros in fines. partridge has more. 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 behind media outlets accused of fake news is anything but ever wonder what fake news and i'm not going to give you a question you are fake do headlines and zero zero in the guardian very effective this notion of election voting fraud this is take notes. doesn't today fake sites blunt trolls can falsely find 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 office this guideline social platforms have to ban what obviously illegal but obvious behavior 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 they're 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 is already hiring more people to check flag posts but with billions of users there are concerns that web giants in general may be overwhelmed by the complaints we reached out to facebook for comment the company told us the legislation is the wrong way to find online hate speech with regulation threatening to remove content that is not actually illegal we discuss the issue with mattel your book i mean a political activist group shout out u.k. he believes the law risks leading to censorship everywhere you look on the internet there is how you treat each 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 vice versa you know how do you define what actually is a reality in every single newspaper in. you never know 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'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 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 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 scares them. another case of police brutality has been 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 paraphernalia was ever found on the victim i should warn you that you may find the following photos distressing. the incident happened just over a week ago video shows the officer punching the back of the man's head while he's being held down at the police report into the incident claims the suspect had resisted arrest for possessing a crack pipe now atlanta's police chief says the situation was avoidable the
officer has been placed on administrative leave for twenty days but some activists say that's disrespectful to the victim. twenty days a suspension certainly kicks justice in the eye and definitely is a insult to the victim and the officers alleging that they so all are 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 resolved report who said that they tried to use a 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 is logic is to seize it in accuracies with the police officer's testimony and what was in the report and so the video speaks for itself incidents of police brutality or increasingly being caught on camera.
i thought i think all right. well you. know you can see right here. this is a culture that happens in policing and it must be addressed a lot of times in law enforcement they have this them vs us mentality or we're above or better than most people like you know when and as it pertains to law and so long for smith officers are not the 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 the issue so a lot of news coming your way here today on r.t. international including the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. compares iran to a school well the lift the lid on that story next. it's. what
politicians do. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president. wanted. to go on to be for us this is what the three of them can't be good. interested always in the water. one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime is. who did it what did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks mean you've mentioned one across the recent run somewhere 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.
just twenty twenty foster and most of the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared iran to a school this in remarks about the country's nuclear disarm. 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 when we're talking about international agreements and enforcement and when we're talking of the potential of prosecuting through military means or the like. these little metaphorical parable references lose their quaintness this is serious business here so when it comes to international diplomacy but it comes with the possibility of sanctions when it comes to the possibility theoretically of war i would prefer lay off the metaphor of the parable and the simile and let's be very very clear and also never overreact always look for a peaceful peaceful interpretation and
a peaceful outcome i hope the first time the top american officials have used this type of rhetoric when describing other nations the cia's former director james clapper has been fairly outspoken in the past about russians. historical practices of the russians. typically almost genetically driven to watch. penetrate. to gain favor whatever is there any reason to believe that russia is not continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate us political organizations individuals all i'm quite sure they are. doing i think it's in their d.n.a. . one of those critical of american policies that target it with such rhetoric but on the broader but also inside the us as well the american philosopher i know i'm chomsky explain how the anti-americanism label is used by politicians and the latest episode of contact with chris hedges the full interview of valuable on our
website and america's u. two page is a quick preview. suddenly critics of american empire american capitalism got tarred with this and he american is you know that american is a very interesting concept it's a concept that only exists to filter in states in the soviet union old soviet union you could be condemned for being the soviet the brazilian military dictatorship you could be. but aside from the united states i don't know of any other. toter in authority there and country with the concept even exist it's a very striking country concept if you're critical of policy you're an idiot american actually this is an interesting biblical origin. who is the ultimate ultimate evil of the bible the cold the prophet. elijah to
him the. way he is hater of israel meaning condemning the evil that's a basic concept authority if you challenge authority you're opposed to the society culture community and so on. a new one point four billion dollar deal sealed by president trump with taiwan has sparked fury in china which argues that the moves contradict earlier pledges by the us administration. to want you to be taiwan is an inseparable part of china we firmly oppose the export of arms to taiwan we stressed that nobody can we can or determination to uphold the territorial integrity and sovereignty and we oppose any external interference in our domestic affairs we urge the u.s. to abide by its commitment to the one china principle and to stop sil's to taiwan
and all military contacts in order to avoid further damage to our relations and enable corp in other fields the new dealing kluges multiple types of missiles torpedoes and various forms of technical support and strong much criticism not least because the us doesn't even recognize taiwan as a sovereign state and although the current administration is no different from its predecessor and sending arms to taiwan experts say trumps honeymoon period with china might soon be out of the business as 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 is 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 the what will be interesting at this moment will be i mean if you look back over a lot from said last year history is that they probably will challenge one china
policy and they want to make it we negotiate everything but to me few months later they come back to stick to your person the u.s. 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. over taiwan if you look at the water. feel i think go. help. so all the. question will be. between. the chinese president xi jinping almost half a year into the presidency the world still trying to figure out just what his policy is towards both china and taiwan and we've been taking a quick look at the headline. china china made
a lot of money with. china i don't want to. call between the president elect and the president of taiwan. united states longstanding commitment to the one china policy white house says president the one china policy. the football confederation's cup we're going to go to some of the world's top teams has now reached the knockout stages covering all the action both on the off the pitch. joining us from st petersburg one of the four host the tournament.
arrived in a rush hour on friday. some of his thoughts with journalists. but if you look at russian nation 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 us 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 all into enemies. to join us if we can on a saturday evening moscow time the latest from the confederations cup and more also details an updated our team doc.
this country. this is what we don't understand how we are in such. a. similar. i do like a good one one legged because if you feel if the minutes of gone were not there god can we leave again in the world with the phone with the computer without the plane . to come back to the three story do you have to see. the end. of june to. move to you. know i've negotiated with the palestinians under oficial and non-official it's for hundreds and thousands of years what i have seen.
