so but then this way this constituent assembly claimed lives with almost one hundred people arrested meantime the opposition is calling for a new day nationwide. from islamic state extremists in syria. working with our big. stronghold in the mountains of. what used to be the terrorists' hideout in the caves beside the cave we make the shocking discovery what appeared to be prison
cells still. lots of tactical vests and us to enjoy a significant increase in prices as president. as secretary. thanks for joining us this is. venezuela's electoral council says the turnout in sunday's vote for a new constituent assembly was more than forty percent. across most parts of the country.
i. an explosion on a street in caracas injured a number of people among them seven police officers also six people were wounded when a grenade was actually thrown into a polling station the opposition is calling for more protests as it regards the election as illegal. it's a republican we know if we don't have a republic we have nothing we may have
a home food we can start a family raise children die so there's no need if we don't have a republic that's why we went to vote. this is a legal you know when they ask people where they want and are now. i don't think you know you know people are tired of violence they can ask the government to fix the things that should be fixed but basically we need peace president my daughter has now called on venezuelans to throw their support behind the new assembly which will be formed after sunday's vote it will be tasked with a rewriting the constitution and will have the power to dissolve the current parliament the opposition has defied a ban on public protests and denounce the election as a so-called power grab by president. now over four months more than one hundred people have lost. their lives in the bottom so for a moment let's look back and see how all the unrest spiraled it was at the end of
march the powers of the national assembly were seized by the supreme court which was the initial trigger of the public anger that in april the quarter advised his decision but that did not calm the tension the national guard was sent to the streets as the protests turned violent and next president my daughter alice his plan to change the constitution sparking further often deadly unrest meantime the u.s. the e.u. and several latin american countries have already rejected the election results but the venezuelan president hit back at outside criticism. we have the constituent assembly now. the spokesperson of the employer donald trump said they don't recognize the election results how the hell could it matter to us what trump is saying it matters what the people of when israel are saying. and commentators are we supposed to say outside states should mind their own business. the past every nice day. election day. the people goes to exercise them all
nothing. can stop the will of the venezuelan people to go and to exercise their will and to apply the democracy the opposition to choose to be out and to accept it to be out of this of this procedure what we have to wait. and of the opposition if then we they will accept the result or not this is the issue right now. let's update the information has been coming to us over the past couple several explosions now being reported near the iraqi embassy in the center of the capital of afghanistan islamic state says it is behind the attack we understand around five gunmen are believed to have taken cover in the embassy building and witnesses say that a firefight is still underway or so far it's unclear if there are any casualties but of course with a developing story when we get the updates you get to. when
our journalist working with our teams are a big channel has been killed by islamic state in syria. was covering a syrian army operation in the homs province when his convoy came under heavy mortar fire a syrian soldier also died in the attack three other people were injured including a cameraman. started working with r.t. back in april reporting on the plight of families caught up in the war he was twenty five years old.
the head of oxy arabic has expressed the channel's condolences to khalid's family and friends. said in a statement we will support them in any way possible and we thank god for his courage i'm bravery so we're here as one of hollywood's a for more reports on the plight of civilians from iraq. those who use the u.s. led coalition planes and those who give the orders of a long think about the consequences of their actions civilians have been killed or forced to flee because of them and the infrastructure has been destroyed all civilians claim that the pretext of fighting against terrorism and extremism is used to justify the actions of the coalition. and. there is no more water for irrigation as the
land has been in record profits and there is no harvest and if any crops did remain we were not allowed to use them. to hurt us. the coalition struck some schools so children don't study anymore many more civilians were injured when the coalition hit hospitals as well. and. so now we are going hellish jets bombed ourselves so we stop and go in there lots of civilians were killed in that airstrike as they were sheltering here at the time . but on this hezbollah fighters have recaptured the last stronghold of the al nusra
a terror group in the country of the soul mountains are located in eastern libya on a right near the syrian border so here is the lebanese border pass along here syria west border here now for six years since the start of the syrian war this area right here has been an absolute halt bed for extremists but now. travels to this newly liberated region. these are the ourselves in the east of lebanon it's the latest scene of the victory of hezbollah the lebanese resistance group who have defeated the al qaeda affiliate. and not so ended just a few days ago and you can still see the remnants of that with bullets and shells all strewn across the floor and we've seen burnt out vehicles on the way up here and during that victory against hezbollah managed to capture this cave which was
used by terrorists as a base so we can go inside and have a look around. inside the cave we make the shocking discovery what appeared to be prison cells it's unclear why exactly elements were needed prison cells in this isolated area. of punishment. to prevent their own fighters fleeing in the middle of the night these are some of the weapons which was captured from japan and we've got these. rockets lots of tactical vests. and there are rocket launches. guns and all sorts of all tillery which were abandoned by no so when they were defeated and they left this cave there's even a room where battle plans are drawn up where fighters receive instruction and they take their seats and listen to the commanders ninety militants were killed in that
battle and those who survived many of them fled to infighting continues between different rebel groups but some of them remained and just a few kilometers away behind these mountains behind us perhaps more ominous to me many more of them decided to defect to the so-called islamic state and some. the hezbollah commander to tell me that they're only four kilometers away from where we are now. in august he said lebanon. since donald trump took office the share price of a number of military industrial companies has shot up among the companies which have seen their shares rise as boeing which besides civilian planes has a large range of military attack as well as lockheed martin a company famous for its fighter jets and missile systems and of course not to be ignored raytheon a major u.s. defense contractor. the top line defense discretionary number is six hundred three
billion dollars that's a fifty four billion dollar increase. we must also ensure that nato members meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe. hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the united states and jobs. however there are growing suspicions of the president favors those very companies who supported him during his presidential campaign. to santiago texan. president trump has chosen raytheon executive mark aspirate to be the next u.s. army secretary now why should you care well first of all trump loves the military
industrial complex will submit a new budget to rebuild our military we will give the men and women of america's armed services the resources you need beautiful new planes and beautiful new equipment you've been lacking a little equipment we're going to load it up but it's not like it really needs all that love i mean look at those numbers the love is all there already second of there are a lot of the fans companies that want a slice of the pie and here comes mark asper a man who's clearly already had a taste aside from being raytheon's vice president of government relations asper also happens to be one of the main military industrial complex lobbyists in the united states and by the way the love is mutual apparently aerospace defense groups boeing and lockheed martin each donated one million dollars to trump's integration fund now they are enjoying the fruits of working with the new administration we
have an administration that is significant and supports an international work for the domestic us in the street and that has opened several doors for us so what's wrong with this i mean everyone's happy right well the answer comes from the thirty fourth president of the united states white david eisenhower. in the councils of government we must guard guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or runs on by the military industrial complex. the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. we must never let the weight of this combination in danger our liberties or democratic process let's wait and see if history really has taught us anything about misplaced power and unwarranted influence me with jago r.t. . putin says the time has come for russia show that it will not leave the u.s.
sanctions unanswered explained moscow's response to washington's latest restrictions in an interview. with more than a thousand people both diplomatic and technical staff currently working in russia with seven hundred fifty five of them will have to stop their activities and that's painful. because then that america has taken a step to jeopardize u.s. russia relations and the important thing is that that step wasn't triggered by anything because this is a move to impose a legal restrictions to attempt to influence other countries including u.s. allies here which are interested in developing ties with russia. but don't forget that we've been waiting for quite a long time so that maybe something would change for the better we had hoped that the situation would change but it looks like even if it does change then it won't
be in the near future quarter i decided it is time for us to show you we will not leave anything unanswered he's alone there will be a political. of course we have more to say that they're all spheres that we can restrict which would be painful for the united states but i think we shouldn't do that and it's only going to harm us russian relations as they are but it's also going to affect us as well also russia ordered the us imus's have used to stop the use of several facilities here we can show you some of them our new sanctions against russia are expected to be signed by president trump the document approved by the congress aims to target russia's and lucrative energy trade with european partners washington claims the measures are in response to alleged election meddling. many more of your old monday worldwide headlines are just.
here's what people have been saying about rejected and. the only show i go out of my way to you know. really. is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same. parent me better than. i see people you've never heard of. the night president of the world bank take. seriously send us an email to make it is that he's the face he'd be or. you. should you be have this. company and this is not to get you ready but. it's to.
thank you joining us here on out to you today cold independence all growing in southern germany that's where one in three both ariens now say they're in favor of breaking free from the country and the e.u. those in favor of breaking away demand to have more representation on the biggest say over the future of their region correspondent peter all of us now explaining why the cracks saw starting to appear. every country i came to ask for video come from and out of a set of area michael is a third generation money maker but when it comes to the month of june many he'd rather have it redrawn he says go very is too important to be a nation in its own right and a recent poll shows that one in three bavarians share his view. needles and bison
foreston off the top of fist strong images of germany but they're actually a very very a is a is a is a market. is a market a brand. on for me it's a better brand than come from germany it tastes bad the smell spat. while most of the german states are simply called the states all right somalia and right in line a lot mate very good looking three states very it makes absolutely no difference but it's a name that's a little different over the last couple of years but there is a political focus is shifted because of the ongoing refugee crisis hundreds of thousands of migrants crossed into germany through the state leading to politicians here to challenge chancellor merkel's phone to policies. for all them in our
culture everyone needs to learn german and it's vital to ending a living and maintaining law and order and it should be our own law and order not that of the arab world. i think the berkeley. such you already against splitting the fact there's only one fourteenth with an independent their real their manifesto to find part time you believe it should be not a very dominating state you know we believe that only should be a state which is peacefully to be of use and which decides his own. economic situation its own democratic situation its own code from situation and there is not just directed towards berlin now we. are ruled from. brussels on the other hand and these people decide a lot of the people. we have no influence the so. in the european parliament
we have only thirteen members. for example greece which has less inhabitants. who lose. well then maybe three brinker we there is a supreme court here in germany ruled earlier this year that any kind of referendum on the subject would be against the german constitution so for the time being at least. they will continue to rule over the very unlikely things are all. over to the united states now where the house of representatives has passed a spending bill with a whopping one point six billion dollars allocated for the construction of a wall along the mexican american border cracking down on drug smuggling was one of the focal points of tom's presidential campaign however some in the state of arizona still not happy with the efforts made by authorities and now taking matters
catchphrase the war on. whenever they put it in front of something else the war on drugs the war on terror all that means is there is no goal there is no objective there is no end game i have a saying you want some done wrong get the government to do. with critics of the approach say it won't help those people in some central american countries are simply desperate to escape the violence of. medical people across central america are facing harassment from all sides the gangs in cottle's work together and make life impossible so the only option is to flee people know they're risking their lives to get to america but they'd rather die than sit at home and wait to be killed every time americans tighten controls on the border that means more business where organized crime it means more death and suffering for those
trying to get across this problem will not get better until a more rational approach is front. of ice are joining us so far here on the program on r.t. international on this monday before we go let's have a quick look back at the spectacular navy day celebrations that were held in russia on sunday. and those are pictures are showing some of the forty warships and numerous times on display for that navy day there in the venice of the north some piss book will look
selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle. for new socks for the tell you that celebrity gossip and tabloid by itself it. doesn't tell you enough to fight. the hawks that we along. with one. you should really. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. want to be rich. but you're going to be cross which she was before three of the more people. interested always in the water . there should.
be. welcome to sophie and co meets the shevardnadze embassy learning metaphorical thinking as what we really are the very things that define us as human that's what we teach our children that's what our culture is about but a team of researchers here in italy suggests that our humanity is biologically coded their findings claim that there are mirror neurons in our brain that make us experience to feelings of others so are we humans programs to relate to each other
or do we have a choice while we're here to talk to dr john lackey who is the nearest scientist in charge of the mirror neurons in our brain. is human nature to mimic each other's behavior do our emotions work in the same way we instinctively return smiles to strangers feel another person's play like it's our own and we copy those we admire but is this conditioned or not children if our brains are trained to imitate this. manipulated what has research into human behavior discovered so far and will the latest discoveries change the way we understand human emotion. dr jekyll modi's our lab it's really great to have you on our program welcome thank you very much so let's go from the beginning your discovery mira nair right there responsible for people's ability to understand reactions there is possible for compassion they're responsible for empathy so logically are those little cells in your brain very
thing that make us human no it's not true because our or so monkey have a mirror it's a mechanism for sensory representation into motor cars. so i go to. a cup of coffee i have the same both of opposition in my brain he's grasping coffee so this makes it easy it's very asian it's but as it's. the other people are not my group discovered in the birds so some birds have these mechanisms so then in humans it has been just for women but it's not exclusivity in human beings so why is it that humans actually insights and compassion and not in monkeys. humans they don't know certain in human manner make it even if it's.
