going to r.t. international live from moscow thank you for joining us and. i want mean videos have emerged online allegedly showing iraqi troops beating and brutally executing detainees in mosul baghdad officials have been launched an investigation after condemnation from human rights groups the warning you may find some of the following images disturbing the video we're showing you right now ends with soldiers throwing a suspected jihadist off an embankment the soldiers shoot the man after he hits the ground human rights watch told us they were able to confirm that the location of this video is most of. what we were able. the images in the videos satellite imagery show that they are cracked or around the areas of most school here to be in. we don't really know what you mention about the videos
jugular but they do match he says that we've been documenting for many months now of actually usually execution. why the rocky security forces are both federal police forces as well as a particular mobilization forces there are really many many cases iraqi soldiers executing a suspected isis militants torturing going to be using family members of suspected isis militants so sadly i have to say that these are not new or surprising well these latest allegations come just days after another rights group amnesty international blamed the u.s. led coalition of assassins of civilian deaths during the battle for mosul it said the coalition's actions may amount to war crimes and u.s. state department spokesperson was grilled on the issue on thursday. it seems to be and this is not just something that unique to this administration but for many over
the course of the last four or five thought of this research when amnesty or another human rights group group comes out with a report on a country that you don't like they like north korea or syria you're and they don't consult those governments when they do that you're for it's you guys except it was you know and you even talk about it and praise the reports from from from the podium and say this is you know we can't relate chemical weapons in syria but when they come out with a report that is in a country that is a madman i have to say we want is also on that report like hartmann of defense puts together a very thorough humanitarian excuse me a very thorough civilian casualty list this is not a case does not a situation where you accept reports that if you like the results but do not accept them as i'm not going to characterize it that way at all ok i think we've been over this now we have repeatedly raised our concerns with the u.s. government in the great compound operations including parts and also really for
example about very many of them says that we are continuing to document iraqi government sources i should say that the interior ministry in iraq has promised to investigate these particular videos just that they promised to investigate prior videos showing severe abuses by iraqi government forces are planned to date we have never see the iraqi government actually hold any soldiers accountable for these abuses that are being documented what would really be best for the iraqi government and the syrian government to ratify the wrong statute and join the i.c.c. so that we can bring music pincers to an international clive you will the mistreatment of anybody never just even if they are isis fighters they should not be street is that's why we have international laws that are going to separate us from isis that's why we can say the international community better than isis because we don't mistreat me. with islamic state losing ground both in iraq and
syria it's not only foreign fighters who've been fleeing the former strongholds but also women who became the wives of the terrorists is the second part of their testimonies about what life is like inside i so the first part is on our website and you tube page. and there were a lot of horrors in places where women live kids had rashes lice and when they got sick they didn't get treatment those places in iraq are like real presence that it was absolutely disgusting to be there one woman had contractions so she went to the chief and said that the woman was knocking at her door and crying for help but most of them i kicked her out saying that she wants to sleep and shouted i wish she were all dead but the woman went into the garden bleeding and stayed there until morning no one paid any attention to her in the morning has found her lying in the garden
and will fight as if nothing happened as if she was just a dog if wives were treated this way others weren't even seen as human beings. at least that i still find so separated girls from married women and from slight looks lots of attention was paid to the girls men brought the make up just to sell them for fifteen thousand dollars virgins were sold for thirty thousand some girls managed to escape to rock those who helped them were killed. my husband told me there is no release of the year no lore and that we must return home so we started planning how to escape. a little bit of thick if in fact i knew what i saw was like i would never have gone and joined my cause been there. the hey i know my husband and i made a huge mistake when we came here and thank god we escape. now the
majority of americans view north korea as the greatest threat to u.s. national security even more than islamic state that's according to a new poll that comes off to pyongyang's latest ballistic missile. asked. open reports from the streets of new york when asked about what was the greatest foreign threat to the united states forty percent of americans listed north korea now that's not really surprising given all the talk there's been in the media about the danger posed by kim and his friends. with the united states the north korean dictator kim jong un threatens the united states with nuclear weapons tensions are really inching to the point of war so how much are americans really in danger from north korea their closest neighbor south korea says that intelligence shows that north korea really doesn't have the capability to carry out an intercontinental ballistic missile strike considering how north korea does not have any testing
facilities for reentry technology the agency believes north korea has not yet secured that technology yet north korea is still listed is the greatest threat greater than i still and that's despite the growing threat of radicalization and homegrown terror recently described by homeland security the number of post nine eleven homegrown terror plots in the united states has served so many aspects of this terrorist thing obviously you've got the homegrown terrorist i don't know how to stop that i don't know how to detect that so why are people so afraid of north korea we decided to find out the greatest foreign threat to the united states. everything yes everything and while the group north korea churning with its career russia chinese i says russia iran or saudi arabia i don't think the relationship between trump and putin china russia korea why do you think korea is a threat. well it's pretty obvious they want to annihilate us right they have
a very. hostile dictator it's very offensive towards united states that is to the whole thing without a warm beer as they have the missile and they tested it and. it's scary you know i don't know i mean are they really a threat are they will what are they really are are they really going to shoot over missiles i mean are we going to have a nuclear holocaust i think that's a little bit much you know but i don't know with north korea is a as big of a threat as we're being as being perceived i don't feel that that they're amman and thread i think that they can start something however and that can spy caught globally what makes north korea a greater threat than i so. i don't know that's a good it's a great question i would think they're unpredictability but they're both unpredictable and i think they have the ability of the atomic weapon i think right now isis is more of a threat the north korea but again and maybe ten fifteen years down the road north korea could be more of a threat i think it's a genuine threat if you like the media's hyping threats about north korea is a big time big time i mean i mean i just i think that it's so it's it's fear
mongering you sit down and you watch fox news m.s.m. is you don't they're all it's more entertainment now it's more they just want to keep you glued to the t.v. screen to see what's going to happen next is up to media is hyping anything they can hype in order to get people to watch at this point u.s. president franklin delano roosevelt said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself and perhaps the most dangerous fears are those that are manufactured and not based on credible threats they will mop and r.t. new york. well let's just look at where the north korea's program nuclear. graham really is as dangerous as the media seems to make it out to be north korea claims it has a number of nuclear warheads estimated to be ten but pyongyang doesn't yet have any missiles capable of sending a warhead over a large distance the furthest they've landed a test missile is nine hundred thirty kilometers which falls well short of reaching the us well this all means that in effect north korea has no active strategic
nuclear forces investigative journalist tim shorrock believes the media scaremongering the united states public has been has been subject to a massive propaganda campaign war is you know coming tomorrow to korea the idea that somehow north korea is more of a danger though you know comes from this propaganda that north korea's aiming is building weapons in an offensive way and this is trying wants to attack the united states and then north korea's developments of weapons or aimed right at the right at all our cities and they are ready at any moment to attack us there is no background at all explain to people you know how we got here what the role the united states has been in this crisis what can be done to get out of it it's all just scaremongering. by them protests mark the recent g.
twenty summit in hamburg germany as interior minister thomaston as the areas proposing to attack potential witnesses in the hope of preventing a repeat of the situation rodgers should be prevented from reaching demonstrations we should make them repeat to the police at specific times or if necessary. only ante g. twenty rally in hamburg started relatively peacefully with activists marching through the streets chanting slogans and holding banners however in the evening violent confrontations erupted involving the police. well the electronic tags proposed for potential rioters can already be ordered by
the courts in certain situations but usually take the form of ankle monitor as in the most commonly used on people under curfew or those released early from prison tegan's also used in health care to help keep track of people with dementia but professor than a pats out from dressed in the university of technology believe such measures would be completely ineffective at stopping riots ceases vamose is more symbolic in basically helpless measures announced by the government or by others in germany these are the seasonal roxanne's of violence which are due to some problems we have mystically growing under the present law it seems not to be legal it is helpless to make change this last which we are not leads to the decider and see we have hit such tax or is long niece who lives the
list got rid of sin so this is more or less as the announcement without any effectiveness in practice. austrians aa divided off the pool kes taken off school menus more on that story after the show break. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us is that it's pull along. the only show i go out of my way to find you know what it is that really packs a punch. yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than. c. people you've never heard of love jack tonight. president of the world bank so very . seriously send us an e-mail. you don't leave universal basic income when you have an economy around the world that rewards imagination and monetizes free
thought free thought free movement of capital and all the intermediary forces go out of business a lot of bankers lose their jobs a lot of politicians lose their job the nation state collapses as we know it and people are as free as their money because right now money is a lot freer than people. welcome back if a child in the austrian city of salzburg is feeling partial for some poor lunchtime they're going to be disappointed and set off the menu in fact has been missing from it fine he is but it's over come to light in the last week to parents fall to request with the mayor's office they were told the decision was made on health grounds but also to meet the needs of muslim children. parents in austria have got
beef with the authorities pork was given the chop from kid to go. has been missing for menus for five years but now it's been spotted austrians are in. your thirty's claim children simply. chicken and carrots the dish was drab due to health reasons among other things the needs of muslim children that's one line this left the non-sweet all sour taste in parents mouths and those polled say they now strongly oppose the decision despite the mayor's claim there's been no official decree is still new some of finding difficult to digest. well we heard reaction about this issue from christian edna from the chamber of commerce in vienna and we're going to shift the ramadan foundation i cannot really see a reason why the mayor of of salts work is denying austrian children access to normal austrian pork dishes pork dishes are part of our culture if
somebody wants to live here actually they should respect our culture it's a treat from the far right who perpetuated this thing about muslims then outside is you know getting preferential treatment i don't support i second you know i'm not criticizing the mayor for having a good thought you know i'm trying to be inclusive but i think you can't be inclusive if you exclude a particular community the one side who things we should proceed were kind of for peace and strategy to accommodate muslims in europe and to make sure that the feel like at home and others who think wait wait a minute this is europe this is our country these are our countries we're not muslims we want to keep our identity so this is part of a major political conflict muslims are not alien to societies that are early to germany or france or the united kingdom or russia and anybody who tries to divide communities anybody tries to perpetuate this hatred inherent hatred that we see i
think should be called off or is it's racism and xenophobia against community there isn't the strategy of the muslims is took out call any criticism on them islamophobia and now especially left wing politicians oh mr very much afraid of of being called islamophobia of course you're a austria switzerland you know we are seen an inherently anti muslim agenda and in those spaces the rights of muslims are being taken away the freedoms of muslims are being taken away and yet still we have people out there suggesting a similar muslims again preferential treatment. it's an absolute lardy and it should be called off for what it is. turkey has begun week long commemorations for the failed coup that took place exactly one year ago today in these latest pictures you can see thousands of people marching from neighborhoods in istanbul to the iconic martyrs bridge turkey suffered the bloodiest coup attempt
in its history over two hundred fifty were killed more than two thousand injured elements of the military launched operations in major cities to try and topple the government with soldiers and times on the streets of istanbul they were met by counter protesters and loyal soldiers and the attempt was quick use of change. now china is deploying troops to its first overseas military base in djibouti the small east african country already hosts troops from several foreign powers and every so explains why it has such strategic importance djibouti a small country in the horn of africa that often slips through the mainstream international media's radar but this week it made it to the global spotlight and here's why two chinese navy warships left to port john john on tuesday to launch beijing's first ever overseas military base in djibouti out of all places in the world wide you pretty well for starters the tiny african country provides access
through the red sea to the suez canal one of the busiest shipping routes in the world another key aspect of djibouti location is its proximity to potential crisis areas namely yemen where saudi arabia is fighting who the rebels in an ongoing civil war and somalia a stronghold for the al qaeda linked militant group al-shabaab so what's in it for china officially it's to boost the thousands of troops and millions of dollars beijing has poured in to assist us please keep the efforts in africa will be joining a two bit of fulfill its international obligation in somalia which is carrying your it's me. providing humanitarian aid it would also benefit in social and economic development and enable china to make further contribution in safeguarding peace and stability in africa and the world the base also help secure china's fast economic interests in africa with beijing investing in so many key infrastructure projects
wrote the continent that is why china is joining the crowd of global powers of ready operating in djibouti washington spilt its biggest four thousand strong base on the continent as you can see marked in blue here on the map france has nine hundred troops there six hundred japanese marines are stationed nearby and saudi arabia is also building a base in the tiny east african state. with all these different countries flexing their military muscles almost literally side by side is djibouti becoming the next playground for the world's leading powers the chinese news one day of the world be called that are big shouldn't between them and united is there one be the one thing i do feel between them and united to do with the two oakland that i do sin and pollution in them both of the work that they came to deal with the united states all clues japan will be out of the soap and or not of mother the divine is with mo

will trust behavior has sometimes triggered waves of indignation both in the media and among the public some commentators think it may have contributed to the fall in his approval ratings yet many of his key policies are not only popular but also similar to those of pretty december a car bomb or his ratings at the start of his presidency were sky high octane very good looks at why the two office leaves so differently. according to a recent poll president trump's approval ratings are low really low but it seems that people don't so much just like him as a president as much as they just don't like him as a person sixty five percent of those who disapprove of trump said it was because of his personality while only sixteen percent objected to his policies ok trump is undeniably a one of a kind president who has said and done some awkward things i think by single greatest asset any assets i have is by temperament you know just like showed. i'm really rich just i'm like a smart person i think i'm much more humble than you would understand. if you
compare term to his predecessor barack obama the figures were almost the exact opposite at the beginning of obama's first term sixty five percent disliked his policies while fourteen percent didn't care for his character a large portion of america really fell in love with who he was. in my first term we ended the war in iraq. in my second term i will win the war on christmas. you pretty tough guy are you a tough guy you look like you're pretty tough and and so you just got to keep on going. but for often being perceived as polar opposites the two actually have a number of political moves in common our own members trumps controversial travel ban that affected people from seven muslim majority countries while the obama administration did the same states as areas of concern and put travel restrictions
on their citizens and some of the rhetoric we've seen from both presence is shockingly similar take their stances on america's place in the global arena it's better that you know i'm out of american lives could result the political just remember that lies at the heart of someone else's civil war we cannot be the policeman of the world and of course those promises to help out the average joe. we're going to bring back made in the usa and we're going have a lot of jobs come back we're going to have a lot of jobs made in america hopeful trend they're bringing jobs back from overseas as for trump the analysis of that gallup poll french is off with a rather somber prognosis for him there izing that unless the president changes his unique style his numbers will continue to plummet it seems in this case everyone is judging this book by its cover r.t. washington d.c. . final rehearsals for one of the world's top shows have taken place just outside moscow and here are some of the best performances from the day.
