a catastrophic escalation. that we can hear a lot international with mean a day or two day roundup of the week's top stories in the up to date news welcome to the program one person was killed and dozens injured on saturday in charlottesville virginia when a man rammed his call into a group of people who were protesting against a white nationalist rally the driver has been charged with second degree murder a warning here there are some disturbing images coming up. thank.
you people. like ok we're ok there's room ready to. try to get out. intentional 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 are 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 are they said this is 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 heather haier 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 attack did occur while the city was still under a state of emergency there was a heavy police presence here but then the burgeoning 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. the old eyes of the unite the right moment attempted to hold a press conference he was continuously booed from the moment he appeared before the crowd and ultimately his microphone was hijacked. yesterday. very. saturday's march began as a protest against the removal of a confederate general style chair at least fifteen people were injured in the ensuing clashes and dozens of arrested pepper spray buttons and makeshift weapons were used in the fighting in a separate incident a police helicopter which was monitoring the rally crashed outside the city killing two offices president trumps a national security adviser condemned the car running as an act of terrorism. where
terrorism is is the use of violence to incite terror and fear and of course it was terrors 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 now 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 anti for 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 a minute sort of 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 baby 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 and increasingly polarized politics. by spitzer by you and i do we stand divided people but i've got to get out of it i try to respect the people who got to. see the democrats.
one of the reasons i won the election is very very divided nation. this week on t.v. launch the campaign to help bring russian speaking children stranded at an orphanage in iraq back home it's believed they were smuggled into the country by their parents who joined islamic state but have now been killed or jailed after muzzles liberation louvin their children behind. mosul was a night man charnel house that orphaned generations not just iraq he's take this baghdad shelter that we filmed heah live the children of i still victims together with the children of i sell fighters. to turn them into. 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 that. we've given. us. then there's five year old who d.j.
and three year old fatima their parents joined the i.c.l. two years ago and were killed in a drone strike in june tells us their grandfather he says a seven year old girl living next door to him recognized fatima and her deja from our video and that he can't wait to see his beloved grandchildren again more than desert and her. courage to open. a little push. they're lucky dejah believe they're old enough to speak. this is. a. thing of foreign. words. 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 often ages that we know of and that's no way near all of them will continue visiting iraqi orphanages 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 more i guess the of. from dagestan russia.
barely a day passed this week without a fresh exchange of threats between the united states and north korea. they will be met. by your. head again it's a state. maybe it wasn't so. all this rhetoric between the two leaders has led to some colorful comparisons as caleb maupin 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 hear what 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 was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us came with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out. donald trump 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 game of thrones you're correct that is game of yes all right our military will be given the resources that it's brave warriors richly deserve. to. control them game of thrones can join them. down a trail right that's donald trump i will not allow the mistakes of the recent decades to define the course of our future. game of thrones donald trump donald trump 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 game of their own can influence. their own spin. on direct your enemies steals and murders your children. kim jong un donald trump be. able to. tell the truth it's game of thrones.
the great this is. a confrontation between the two military powers has of course provoked a lot of international reaction while russia says the risk of war a high china war against playing with fire over north korea some u.s. allies have also stressed the not supporting the escalation germany says a harsh exchange was isn't the correct response while the u.k. insists that the situation should only be dealt with through the u.n. some analysts we spoke to believe that both the u.s. and 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 one we only want negotiations where the negotiating entry point is the north korean surrender. this strength of a smallish town insomnia maybe i have been reduced to rubble by government forces. still to come.
and program saudi arabia's marriages continuing the demolition of a small town entire districts have been reduced to rubble supposedly in hunt for gunmen responsible for attacks on police residents told us was behind the operation they asked for their voices to be disguised. no the shooting. the shooting but i think it's good. to start to turns against civilians who are russian. mancini's now well. you. know. nobody's out because sure sure. sure. sure.
sure more sure it's not. sure. i can't see it. so i wouldn't want her. to shoot. you know i go when no one out there wants to go however the local man says the bulldozers on the streets are less thing to do with the fighting he says they're clearing the area to make way for new infrastructure he also claimed that most locals wanted to see their neighborhoods and we developed our media has a population of around twenty five thousand people is predominantly shia and is mostly opposed to the sunni run government it was the how time of the executed him
a. critic of the country's rulers over the way they treat the shiite minority given the ethnic background locals claim their innovation plans are simply an attempt to drive a lot. government. information . and information it's just. become more hard to susan. thank you i actually am. you can hear my question actually. why the government come to. completely. true government stand down. the months long crackdown has claimed its youngest victim a boy who died from his injuries.
it's of my family. and i want me and i lost my students and friends. in the assault. on the city a child was shot by the saudi special forces and he doubts that he was shot in the car is this family the so-called scientists renovations began in the spring and have been aided with these western equipment canadian military vehicles for example are involved. we are looking at these claims very seriously and have immediately launched a review saudi arabia is canada's second biggest arms fire the u.s. and u.k. also routinely sell billions of dollars worth of equipment to the kingdom which has repeatedly been accused of human rights violations and activists told us about the destruction of our mia. two thousand and eleven
a war me i was. one of the strongest towns in qatif calling for reforms calling for more right in saudi arabia not only for she even for certain is a will there the government to invite independent investigation of what's happening to interview these twenty thousand who have been disciplined east not to sell elect some members who they know what would they say then they will told the government narrative. r.t. has spoken to a palestinian father and his son who say they were brutally beaten by israeli police in east jerusalem they described a video of the incident which emerged shortly afterwards online. i mean the directive to hold me to open a neighbor's house without any reason i replied that this is not my house and i do not have the key to it he still yelling at me and at the same time ordered the
soldiers accompanying him to break my. notes on it and it was a byproduct of consequential that was a pleasure to her. there were five to six people they were employees of the special forces they attacked me twisted my hands behind my back and began to beat me. not only for it also but not for. their oh never should prefer. they beat me hold on the head it sharply twisted my right hand behind my back and started to beat it insistently so that my elbow was friendship. and his fifteen year old son ahmed told us that after being beaten they were taken to the police station house for two
days however nobody explained to them why they had been detained in the first place . they forced us into a car and drove to the polish station they kept beating and insulting us during the right at this station they confiscated our clothes one officer asked me to stand near a wall and smash my head against a two car fingerprints and took my father away i was kept at the station for two days for the help of how you're wily but they didn't explain why they had beaten us we didn't attack me nor my some did nothing to us. the incident comes a growing concern over israel's treatment of palestinians in east jerusalem human rights watch warns the practice of removing residency may be a war crime. the rights group issued a report warning about the growing number of revocations in recent decades israel has shipped over fourteen thousand palestinians of their residency residency
permits human rights watch says that residents who guarantees civil rights to palestinians so when the permits a revote they're forced to leave their homes. work crime in question is the forcible deportation of the occupied of the protected population. is part of the occupy territory here we're not talking about people forced to leave their home at point to god we're talking about policies that in fact forced people to eat despite concerns from rights groups israel gives a number of justifications for its actions authorities say residency rights are usually removed when jerusalem is no longer a person's main place of residence however in recent years palestinians have also been stripped of their rights for attacking israelis and also as a punishment against relatives of suspected attackers as. we've just heard some news in from the west african nation of bikini faso gunmen
have reportedly been filed in a restaurant injuring at least two people in the capital good to the attackers are believed to be islamic extremists but so far there is no confirmation of the us soldiers have arrived at the scene and an armed standoff is ongoing the country has seen a surge in terrorist activity of the past few years and we're closely following the story and we'll keep you updated. check out to us on facebook and youtube and of course our website amanpour dot com you've been watching the week here on the international i'm going to today and i'll be back at the top of the hour. plus. all the field we don't know something. everyone in the world should experience freedom and you'll
get it on the old the old. the old according to just. lock up the modern world come along for the ride. we really. don't want. to be not about. the mission of newsworthy is to go to the people tell their side of the story our stories are well sourced we don't hide anything from the public and i don't think the mainstream media in this country can say that i think average viewer knows that our to america has a different perspective so that we're not hearing one echo chamber that mainstream
media is constantly spewing. we're not beholden to any corporate sponsor no one tells us what the cover how long the coverage or how to say that's the beauty of archie america. we give both sides we hear from both sides and we question more that journalists are not letting anything get in your way to bring it home to the american people. your launching an r t america special report that i am this. is my that. basically everything that you think you know about civil society has broken down. there is always going to be somebody else one step ahead of the game that we should not be on the normalising. we don't need people with things like this on our
planet. this is an incredibly situation that. might have been tonio and this is america's lawyer the oppression of native americans in the united states has been one of the most overlooked stories in all of us history from the earliest days native people have been stripped of their land stripped of their rights and script of constitutional protections broken treaties underfunded government programs and the lack of media attention have only made the oppression worse tonight we'll take a look at how the u.s. government has for centuries been trampling on the rights of native americans and then later in the show i'll talk about another legal battle against monsanto as one of its herbicides has midwest farmers complaining that it's destroying their land so don't go anywhere america's lower starts now.
most people in the united states tend to believe that we're ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to the rights of our citizens we criticize them publicly admonish other countries when they violate the civil rights of their people but we often turn a blind eye to the abuses kirit it right here on our own soil there's no shortage of. oppress groups here in the us the list seemingly is inless of different groups that have been attacked by the government the media law enforcement agencies but one group that's often overlooked in is in these discussions is the oppression of the native american population since the very first days of our republic native americans have been pushed aside quite literally to make way for wealthy white landowners we stripped them of their land they lived on for centuries so we could create new settlements and expand our territories and in the centuries since that time things have.
