this week r t launches a campaign to bring home russian speaking children. for the liberation of. iraq. north korea sparks international concern. with the top stories from the past seven days on the latest developments as well you're very welcome to the week here on r t international our top story violent street brawls turn to tranche of tea in the u.s. state of virginia today with one person killed dozens injured it all happened on a far right over the removal of confederate heritage from the small city of charlottesville where a. two car rammed into a group of protesters now the driver has been arrested and charged with second
degree murder a warning the following. so there's room to go. right to the. internal tears well we're right now here at the scene of the attack just behind me is where it occurred i think that the atmosphere here right now is so member a but also hopeful everyone that we've talked to has talked about the community here in charlottesville that it's very much so more like
a family and that they will pull together and they have all been condemning the hate that happened yesterday most people do feel that those that were committing the violence yesterday were more out of towners than what the people from here they said it's a very peaceful town i have with me the headline of a local newspaper here and there's a very intense picture you can see people were thrown up in the air during the attack as the car plowed down the street people were coming counter protesters were coming up to this alleyway when a car came down through the alleyway plowing through the crowd ripping through the crowd of protesters as you mentioned one woman did lose her life in the thirty two year old payor of course the driver of the car fled the scene but he has been i rested and identified as twenty year old james fields of ohio he is now being charged with second degree murder for the death of heather there were also nineteen more people injured in that attack at this point there are still five people in
critical condition this is talk did occur while the city was still under a state of emergency there was a heavy police presence here but the virgin your national guard also here in the town of course it's been condemned nationwide quoting from the president he did say that all parties must be held responsible a comment that many people have attacked saying that he should have been more specific it's very clear who was responsible for the violence in the city. well the main reason for saturday's unite the right to march was the authorities plans for a move a confederate statue on rename to local parks at least fifteen people were injured in the ensuing violence and scores arrested pepper spray on makeshift weapons were used in roles between far right demonstrators and counter protesters in a separate incident a police helicopter which was monitoring the rally crushed outside the time killing two officers while the us president has voiced his concern over the standoff in
virginia we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sites on many sites it's been going on for a long time in our country not donald trump not barack obama. it's been going on for a long long time if the k.k.k. our team were going down there to start a fight shame on them if they were if that was done in the guise of a charity that charity should be revoked and severely disciplined same for the anti for if there are people behind who are are funding it through through charities which i suspect they may be and in provoking violence around the country even in this in the minutes that have passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed placards you know i think
people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who may be guilty of what offenses best to get them and punish them accordingly before we leap to a conclusion as to what may have happened. amidst the violence in virginia many continue to blame it on deep divisions within american society an increasingly polarized politics. spitta by you and i do we stand divided people but i've got to get out of it i try to respect people that are. democrats. one of the reasons i won the election is very very divided nation.
this week r.t. launched a campaign to help bring russian speaking children stuck at an orphanage in iraq back home they were reportedly smuggled into the country by their parents who joined islam mixtape but have now been killed or fled after most of the liberation leaving their children behind. mosul was a nightmare charnel house that orphaned generations not just iraqis take this baghdad shelter that we filmed here leave the children of i still victims together with the children of i sell fighters. to them and. school just
to. get. these harrowing words touched people's hearts my heart broke watching this story will make a humble but on a slipping will gladly provide for those children should the remain displaced it's nice country here in australia and the children would be loved. in mixed with the messages of support that we received were claims from alleged relatives take little league. video video. even. then there's five year old who d.j.
and three year old fatima their parents joined i sell two years ago and were killed in a drone strike in june tells us their grandfather he says a seven year old girls living next door to him recognized fatima and her d.j. from our video and that he can't wait to see his beloved grandchildren again. her. for her to open. up to her. they're lucky deja they're old enough to speak because. this is. a. thing of foreign. companies. but what about the many orphaned children to
young to speak much less know their names even if their relatives know them it is only from photographs as an example one woman believes she recognized her grandson in our video by his eyes. from a completely different economic. station national compassion. there are forty eight russian speaking youths in iraq orphanages that we know of and that's nowhere near all of them will continue visiting iraq often edges and documenting the children there in the hope that after all their pain and loss these young souls can be reunited with their relatives back home relatives who
desperately love them or i guess the. from dagestan russia. barely a day passed this week without a fresh exchange of threat speech when washington and pyongyang over north korea's latest military maneuvers. they will be met. by. the. head again it's a state. maybe it wasn't so. well all that type of rhetoric between the two leaders has led to some colorful come partisans and explains when donald trump threaten north korea with fire and fury everyone online apparently had the same thought game of thrones. north korea. best not to be one of threats to the united states. they will be
met with five years of. life the world has never seen. now arguably the only other world leader whose tirade sound as much like a fantasy villains is kim jong un so we decided to go out and give americans on the street a little quiz we'll give them the quote and they tell us was it trumped was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us game with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out. game of thrones that's kim jong un ok all right. i tried you know as many people as
i can you never know which one you'll need. non-neutral also donald trump donald trump donald trump came through and you're correct that is game of yes all right our military will be given the resources that its brave warriors richly deserved. to. control them came of their own can join them. down a trail right now that's i will not allow the mistakes of the recent decades to define the course of our future. enjoyment came of their own true. i'm just going to go with donald trump again that's correct and you're right you're right we can keep any cesspool of evils in the earth including them within our striking range of game of thrones came around. again with their own spin. on direct your enemies steals and murders your children. kim jong un donald trump be.
they would throw him. it's game of thrones. the great. well a confrontation between the two military powers has of course provoked a lot of international reaction russia says the risks of war are high and china warned trump against playing with fire and that's a quote over north korea some u.s. allies have also stressed they're not supporting the escalation germany says a harsh exchange of words is not the correct response while the u.k. insists that the situation should only be dealt with through the united nations some analysts we spoke to believe that both the u.s. on north korea should change their policy. i don't see the plus in these threats were we getting something in return from these president's threats i don't see it i've never seen the tension so high in the korean peninsula i'm extremely concerned
i hope the president's advisors rein him in general kelly you know the new chief of staff he's got to tell the president you can't conduct foreign policy the way you're doing with words with fiery words i think the north koreans have put forth look we will stop our missile tests if you stop your war games we've been doing war games on that peninsula for fifty or sixty years from now so what good does it to walk away from that entry point into negotiations other than the fact that the united states simply does not want to really enter into negotiations is not why we only want negotiations where the negotiating entry point is the north korean surrender districts of a saudi tongue are reduced to rubble as authorities hunt on terrorists the locals say it's simply a way of driving the shia community out we've got more not after this.
