lose i. i. well let's find out more as to what's going on that cross to our middle east correspondent paula paula. we're seeing some pretty violent scenes at the moment can you update us on the situation. well for the last hour there's been complete chaos here in front of the al aqsa mosque i'm standing just in front of one of the police barriers we arrived here during the day prayers we were on the side where i would say on two to three thousand time this thing is we're training they were heating a call on the spiritual leader not to interview alex and not to credit of the hospital counted yet and pray in front of the net of detectives that he has been detected that these major parties have setup since last friday now this followed a terror attack in which two israeli police officers were killed and since in these
raids have been beefing up security around the alexa mosque and this has led to a week of outrage today is the main day of rage that was called for the outlets to spiritual leader he said that people should abandon they must protest outside these doors otherwise to the situation would explode but it said he has exploded in the hour also there have been convinced charging forward into the crowd where i was it seemed as if the crowd was unprovoked and as if the police want to vote they they started moving inside they started firing tear gas as i'm talking to you there's a strong smell of tear gas in the air that was stun grenades going everywhere a lot of vehicles at a pos in this area the glass has been shattered people have rushed into the homes of the protesters have been pushed all the way back lucky but the scene happening right now is my street clashes so the security police officer saw a surging forward the protesters moved back the protesters moved forward the police surged forward so the situation is extremely tense and it also follows
a decision by the israeli cabinet to keep the security barriers in place the figures we've been given are around three thousand israeli security police around the on the base mosque to try and deal with the situation and it's not new that's as. to which is nice but susan page made it i had to pass it and here in jerusalem having them and also in that we can. add politics for a little bit of technical difficulty that has paula flair out his middle east correspondent thanks paula. well we got the views of people on both sides of the debate to find out what they think about the current tensions. i don't understand why preventing and protecting the holy place the temple mount. should be any reasoning for any kind of terror and violence if some people want to exploit that that situation and incite terror and the only ones to blame for the terror will be
those insiders and those who are acting by it because the israeli security system will do everything it can to make sure to preserve public order the state of israel is instigating violence it's prohibiting people from practicing freedom of worship something that the state of israel claims opposite of the state of israel wants to add a fake jewish feature to the identity of truce along to their claim actually we answer one thing jerusalem is as israeli as moscow is american i'm very sorry that we reached this point i would have expected the leaders of the muslim community to condemn last week's terror attack and to try to calm down the crowd but instead what we've been seeing in the past week we've been seeing the islamic leadership calling upon the people to come today to the temple mount and to organize riots and this is something we cannot allow we're not going to allow to
druce them the city which is holy for so many billions of people around the world jews muslims christians all believers of the viable we cannot allow this place to turn in to its center of riots of stone throwing of endangering the peace of the public order and therefore we had no choice the state of israel created this myth about security this nuclear state is claiming that is in its attacking people's rights for its own security these people are on even the incident that took place that store a disco old process didn't take place i could see sure if it took place outside the mosque. and israel retaliated inside the mosque to create that to the world that the incident happened actually in the mosque and by that it took advantage of the incident only to promote its journey to change just out of school inside a locks almost i think it's the interest of the one that the temple mount remains
quiet and therefore they should be helping out with the israeli police and not in fighting against israeli police they should be working hand by hand because those three muslims who last week are in the temple mount inside this place which is so saying the fight for the past millennium for muslims but many for two million for christians and for three million for jews is a place which we want to preserve think divided we don't want killing to be open there and therefore once it happened once we know that can happen against israeli soldiers are blocking the ways to do so in the state of israel instigates and try to touch upon something that is very sacred to the palestinian people whether was from a religious point of view or national one of you and what do they expect and this violence that we're talking about it's based it's not using weapons it's just protest treated by violently by the state of israel and its soldiers and people react to that but no weapons. the first half
a joint russia china trails and european war to start today in the baltic sea the military exercise between the two countries will last for a week however even before it takes place the event is sparking a strong reaction. and has. western media is in a spin over the joint the twenty seven thousand naval drills starting today between russia and china headlines have been lifted with words like invasion and war was warning of a challenge to nato so what sparks the panic well first of all it's the location in the baltic sea right in the heart of northern europe next to nato bases secondly chinese warships are making their debut tour in this part of the world.
and if that wasn't threatening enough that teaming up with russia but joins the drills are nothing new they've been held annually since twenty twelve but this first stage of the baltic coast has already caused a frenzy as a trio of chinese vessels made their way there leaving the british danish navy's scrambling to shatter them out of their water is much to the amusement of the russian ambassador to china the baltic states repeat their usual incantations but at the same time they take for granted the fact that nato is deploying large forces on their territory but then wasn't this response predictable in october last year a russian fleet sailing around europe spotted headlines like the leading some
european states to even consider sending vessels to intercept the group and this fear of the russian ships has been around for some time already you can just ask sweden a country that spent twenty years insisting that russian submarines were sneaky. around its coastline until they realize that the only thing lurking that mix now we can confirm that as of this moment you know makes all scheduled to take part in joint c. twenty seven c. . meanwhile the u.s. and allied countries have just finished their own massive exercise in the region say but guardian took place in eastern europe on the territory of three countries still aimed at deterring so-called russian aggression some twenty five thousand personnel from more than twenty states participated in the biggest drill of their kind in five years we spoke to writer and political commentator john white who says the media is amping up its usual job of hype. part of an ongoing propaganda
campaign is being conducted in the western media to try and paint russia and china came of evil empire riku distance of cold war and all strongs to try and demonize both countries we're only about eating by the rate to seal in international waters or do nothing wrong nothing illegal. western media has to say to try and inflame the situation is a serious part of this ongoing cold war part of the game that we've seen who know us few years. a police officer in the u.s. state of baltimore has mistakenly caught himself on camera staging a drug bust the video shot in generations the officer planting drugs in the backyard of a house alongside two of his colleagues who are seen in the footage the officer then leaves the area to turn his body camera on forgetting the units set up to record the last thirty seconds before manual activation he then returns to the scene where the drugs were earlier buried to discover them an internal
investigations now underway and the people arrested for drugs possession have been released. baltimore state attorney defended the judicial system and her office saying they weren't aware of the videos existence critics have questioned why the officers would choose to fake a crime when the city is already struggling with law and order as it is. your cities your body american urban decay and more depressingly than the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. murder out of control. yes baltimore there is a robust active crime strategy. seeing women say. this week we have two suspects that we need your help to buy.
out a problem in baltimore there's a miscommunication among police officers in a community all over the united states of america i think one thing that needs to happen is that we as long foresman we ought to get out and really really work with the community there was an officer who planned it some drugs in the community and dead since a negative signal not just to the police else's but the community as a whole it made sense although. there are increasing calls for the aid to help it's me cope with a constant stream of why guns or not story after this break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington to washington controls the media the
media. the voters elected to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. one else seemed wrong all right all wrong just don't call. me all the things yet to say proud to stay active. and engaged with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
welcome back to the program as italy seeks help from the to cope with the daily influx of migrants foreign minister has urged rome not to allow the newcomers to make it to the mainland he's declared even if they are plucked from the sea they shouldn't get quote a ticket to central europe as the mayor of palermo said the indifference of some states in the plot to the crisis equates to fascism lived all over. europe will be on trial for genocide this will be the second nuremberg trial maybe not in the courts but in the history books because of this ongoing genocide in the mediterranean and it's all because the indifference of certain states in the european union the e.u. has to recognize the freedom of movement as a human right this is very serious and i think the european union should can i say feel ashamed if he has witnessed a record number of migrants arriving almost ninety thousand since january and more
than two hundred twenty thousand are expected by the end of the year local authorities are trying to find a solution that is all too easily petrenko reports or sicily it's certainly proving a struggle. migrants keep comin for solutions not really local mayors are desperate for help from the central government and the new but they're not getting it so they decided to get together right there to see what they can do about it first. there are no jobs for old people and so of course they won't be any to migrants. to the migrant crisis was caused by wrong european policy. i blame our government for this persistently the migrants primary destination after crossing the mediterranean and messina the ferry gateway to mainland italy the issue is super delicate and urgent and the meeting is happening behind closed doors . just.
tell me not to come in and that's ok. thank you how many people are taken part in this meeting over five police officers and about forty government officials the forty mayors of local towns spent hours together with the local governor but these aren't the people who are talking to the big officials of the let's see what they have to say about that i was told that the meeting is going to be over soon. at least. the migrants are victims of tragedies in their homelands but our communities paying the price too and we're not getting the necessary help. we've heard a lot of talk from the u. but barely anything is being done we're all alone the mayors are facing growing
pressure on the one hand after several protests they're here to save the day for their small communities on the other and they're trying their best not to be labeled racists and the migrant issues very very urgent for all the regions it's all about the numbers the quota agreement of two point five migrants per thousand citizens has been violated several times. here initially we're trying to divert the flow of migrants and spread them across communities we asked the e.u. to do the same but they're turning their backs on us i haven't spoken to officials in this building you get the impression that they're ready to make compromises they're ready to think several steps forward and they're ready to sort out the issues themselves when it comes to the law or weight of assistance from the you and that obviously they have completely lost their trust. it's the fourth day of the max as i say that's taking place there moscow the latest planes and aviation technology are being showcased at the event while some of the best of
display teams from around the world are demonstrating their skills but as well as looking to the future many have been taking a few moments to marvel at something a little special on the past. a legendary soviet illusion two fighter affectionately known as the flying tank took to the skies for the first time in decades this particular one that was shot down in one thousand nine hundred forty three it had been lying at the bottom of a lake in northern russia for more than seventy years before it was recovered restored and returned to the air the illusion to hold the record for being the world's most produced military fighter although these days there are only two still flying. artie's sophie shevardnadze has spoken to a veteran drug enforcement agent who spent decades undercover exposing cartels across latin america here's an extract you can watch the full interview later on friday when i was working undercover at you had to be extremely careful
of you know not be nervous because drug dealers buy their psychological make up are very very suspicious you know there are they suffer from paranoia and they passed you constantly they ask you questions what i did to control any type of nervousness is i expunged from my mind that i was the agent and psychologically i transform myself into a drug lord. i was one of them i dressed like i like. i could not afford to think like law enforcement and i did law enforcement for so many years but i had to completely completely remove that from
my mind and there was a transformation very much like an actor and before he plays a role in the movies or on television however. in this case you were playing a deadly game of cat and mouse any minor mistake that you made and you worried that . france's official presidential portrait doesn't have a pose much of a problem until the latest incumbent emanuel macron who now wants a bigger one than his predecessor.
people just completely unaware of what they're agreed to you could literally anything you want to condition those people just don't read it that will be agreed to all sorts. watching the whole coming up next here on. the magic. six thirty five and you have a what a career and a career involves using your i phone in your computer things like that in an office and perhaps you start getting headaches a circular tooth going to have to stop doing all of this and this is tell you lou there must be freight my world became smaller and smaller and smaller until i ended up loving it and the box. very strong magnetic field held in my
head. think of it like a real hard pressure my skin burned and that wireless access point six continues on today with our students in the schools. we are just continually bathing our citizens in this microwave radiation it is certainly electro small and it's getting worse. when lawmakers manufacture consent to step into public wealth. when the ruling classes to protect themselves. with the financial merry go round the sun. the one. making the middle of the room sick. to let her.
world with over forty million lives lost both civilian and soldier that was world war one was one hundred third anniversary is coming up on july twenty eighth just twenty five years later those same mistakes were duplicated this time in the skies above japan when the united states dropped the atomic bombs in world war two and now today we may very well be seeing these these same miscalculations and battlefield who bruce playing out all over again but this time the the weapons are not made of iron and gunpowder but of ones and zeros the associated press is reporting this week that according to u.s. officials the trump administration is finalizing plans to revamp the nation's military command for depend sivan off and subside bra peroration in hopes of intensifying america's ability to wage a cyber war against the islamic state group and other photos the plan would involve
separating the military focused u.s. cyber command from its current home of the n.s.a. and elevate it to the status of a unified command under its own commander this move according to the a.p. would relieve the operational tension currently arising between cyber command and the n.s.a. a.p. journalist will lead about do a writes that the defense department has been agitating for a separation perceiving the n.s.a. and intelligence community as resistant to more aggressive cyber warfare particularly. after the islamic states transformation while the military wanted to attack islamic state networks intelligence objective was prioritized gathering information from them so as the white house and the pentagon prepare to put cyber warfare into the same realm of battle as sea air and land it let's take a moment to pause and wonder if our humanity is once again being blinded by millet .
