a supporter of free speech it was confronted by kuntar protesters who were shouting insults before a riot police blocked there was a group of demonstrators attempted to force their way through the barricade some of them through fireworks on the stones three people being arrested. came just a day after a street brawls at a white nationalist rally in virginia which turned deadly when a car rammed a crowd of protesters. talk us through what led us to the scenes all of this weekend we're joined by our tea samir account some euro hi how are you so the recent clashes in seattle on the tragic events that took place in virginia have exposed the extent of the division in us society and not even the president and his team can deny this. this egregious
display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many sites it's been going on for a long time in our country where terrorism is is the use of violence to incite terror and fear and of course it was terrorism. it began way back during the u.s. presidential campaign with pro and anti trump rallies springing up all across the nation both sides have been throwing accusations and insults at each other even before election day and as you might expect given a campaign was in full swing. i would say we're more open minded we're kind of more moderate well educated people a lot of educated people that are sensible. they were kind of very good weren't they i'm not to judge what other people's education and stuff is it's not surprising that the country is divided in half. but
following the bombshell results of the election half of the country was left in discontent so much so that for some they went beyond rhetoric to vent their frustration as we saw with the violence in berkeley which became one of the main battlegrounds. i. was there. was a. god. and some left wing activists have even gone as far as attempting to assassinate a republican lawmaker now both the newly formed far right and the far left are feeling sufficiently emboldened to come out onto the streets and wreak havoc all
across america the violence in virginia over the weekend over the weekend should have been assigned to stop but more took place in seattle so it seems that seething tensions and violent clashes which resulted in dozens injured and even one death are becoming the new way that americans result their political and social misfits who live from washington d.c. are to some your account think. now the dean of durham university's law school in the u.k. told us that both the right on the left are becoming more extreme. the political dimension is you have very much a clear right and left split in american politics right and left split that seems to be without much of a center ground as you know with the a lot of space in the middle of the right has become more rights and and some would say the left has become more left of the country's become more polarized and people are not seen in total trump his promise to bring people together but it seems that
people have never been further apart under under his rule speaks about you and i do we stand divided. i suspect. that if. democrats. one of the reasons i won the election was. very divided. to another headline stories r.t. is continuing its campaign to find relatives of russian speaking children stranded on iraqi war from each bring them home is the call we're seeking to be heard globally among those identified to date are sisters five year old and three year
old fuss about the youngsters reportedly being taken to iraq by their parents who joined this law makes state the girl's relatives in russia recognize them in a video that we filmed in just a few days prior now their grandparents want them home as soon as possible. it is remarkable how coincidence can change entire lives a seven year old neighbor recognizes her poor mother playmate. on instagram she shows. video that we filmed to her grandparents who had all but given up deja and her sister as last call it fate call it divine intervention but it changed all of their lives. for an attacker because the new words instigated you're it. it's a very you know sort of school for sure you know what i. feel believe grandparents
cried. it was a whirlwind of emotions and they found a new purpose in life to bring the girls back into a privately but deja was only three when they last met and tried to mount me a months old would she remember to review is all and. i tell my good just. he. writes. the facts are. you guessing. if you don't. mean.
to sound. stupid. there is something precious unforgettable it is one of the real opportunities to witness in its purest form we just want to big grandparents to know that despite her young age and the terror of most though she remembered them more i guys do you see from dagestan russia. well since we started broadcasting not story we have been contacted by nist really and viewer mark johnson in his offer to adopt a child whose relatives can't be find my heart broke watching the story when we can humble but on this living will gladly provide for those children should the remain
displaced it's nice country here in australia and the children would be loved. it was not raging soon as i read it i cried and i mean we were promised still think about. it was. very destroy the poor children's were. in despair. we could still see some of them being in jordan but. it shouldn't be that it should be happy to have them surrounded by great advantage the same while their parents abuse them while i can just look at the bit to be part of an overall situation and these children shouldn't be there. when i when i got the boys i think he saw very little people here. cause they're all. and he did the wife that little boy. experience.
and this is. what i mean couple of years old that was one of the most harrowing bits that i remember. and his description of saying saying the person. you through all these little voices i would describe such in the way that stuck with me and i would never want any trouble from that come across them for that matter. well perhaps you may have some information about the kids please do contact us using the e-mail address on screen children r t t v dot are you. russia will do all it can to bring peace and stability to libya which has been engulfed by civil war for years the announcement came as the chief of the libyan national army which is opposed to libya's internationally recognized government
visited russia's foreign minister here in moscow for more years a role as these brokers does not a month finding a recipe but enabling the creation of the best conditions for dialogue between key libyan figures to allow them to negotiate the future of their own country. and i think the results of our negotiations is very good russia is no thinking about what part it could play in bringing peace to libya we will be happy if russia continues to play a part of this process that. libya is currently mainly governed by two competing authorities the u.n. backed government of national accord has its headquarters in libya's capital of tripoli and controls the western part of the country there too brooke government representative is in moscow controls the east of libya the political unity of the country was broken in twenty eleven following anti government protests.
i. was. going to. well we got reaction from all over miles a former you can buster to libya. doesn't want to be association with one policy un efforts to bring all the parties together there are too many people in libya who have some power at the moment they have weapons. probably afraid of what will happen if they give up the weapons they know that they might. be called to account for crimes they've committed or even if not crimes that they might be called by the
enemy is i think that's the bottom line on the difficulty is to bring all these groups together and convince them that they have to work together because otherwise libya is going to. libya is a rich country in terms of oil for of money but at the moment you wouldn't think it was a rich country at the moment everybody is living. short break look at the ratcheted up tensions between the u.s. north korea. politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express an injury. or something that's. actually going to be for us this is what before three of the people. interested
and north korea is generating plenty of headlines and made growing fears that could erupt into a real confrontation donald trump's military adviser is also ringing the alarm but i think we're not closer to war than a week ago but we're closer to war than we were a decade ago and this has been a problem that we've procrastinated on for a long period of time and now it's coming to a head where the threat from north korea not only to the united states but to the world is very very clear. following statements like that it's perhaps not surprising people are worried google searches in the u.s. for how to survive a nuclear attack or trending classics like how to get rich how to be happy that you hawkins has been taking a look at who actually benefits from any scaremongering. the higher the tension the hotter the rhetoric we've certainly had no shortage of that in recent days but who stands to gain from this war of words for one the u.s.
president has kept busy sounding military drums against north korea. they will be met. by view. that if there is a state. maybe it wasn't so. tough talk like this that brought him unique popularity according to one poll trump's approval ratings jumped to forty five percent on the back of those comments. next on the list the north korean all me twenty one claims of well paying three and hoff million volunteers have signed up for the country's military all because of the recent escalation if true definitely a win for his all the recruits is. now moving on to the u.s.
territory located closest to north korea people there have already received god loans and what to do when they see a mushroom clouds but there's an unexpected cause for celebration because apparently all the hype will actually do the good. and where there is war or even the talk of one is always big money and this time it's ten points for the bunker business really worried for my family my kids just want to make sure the room protected sales are going through the roof on the way. apocalypse styria now with military tensions running high bomb shelters are alas making a comeback client scott helps people who are really bridge and really freaked out
his clientele has changed for people afraid obama would take their property to those of great trouble start a nuclear war all this drama with north korea it's paying off in a big way for this company take a look at what they are selling here these are massive bomb shelters one such companies even advising people to form an entire survival community if nuclear armageddon talk has you scared feel you could move to one of these bunkers scattered around a whopping twenty square kilometers in south dakota yet another says they're completely sold out or even did so but we have the capacity to me. there's a year's supply of me trees around the world. so plenty of point scoring on the back of me. but while the big bosses are reaping the rewards a lot of communities of people are left losing sleep over the fear of the yet another conflict. a rights activist and university of language profession that we
spoke to see as he's concerned by trump's reckless rhetoric. is used by the united states it defends the united states but it's not really the united states. and the north koreans were to say that we're going to target off the coast of california or we're going to target off the coast of washington state or even target off the coast of hawaii there would be a very different response from the united states because you are directly threatening the homeland but what is the purpose of a territory or a colony the purpose of a colony is that you exploit it when things are good and if things get ugly you cut it loose the fact that trump speaks so recklessly and so is repulsively only helps to underscore a lot of those those anxious tensions. so another big story of the day a mudslide near sierra leone's capital freetown is believed to have killed at least three hundred twenty people with more trapped in their homes.
reports. sixty children are among it's believed that many were caught asleep when the mudslide struck homes to rubble emergency crews are now working off the scene where roads have been turned simply into rivers of mud people of course struggling to get out in that situation we will keep you updated on this situation as new figures are clarified and we can verify them as well. as federal security service detained and linked group allegedly planning terror attacks on public transport. has been following the security services operation. powerful explosions on public transport services and at moscow's shopping malls it
looks like if it wasn't for this raid by the washing feds we could have seen bloodshed in the russian capital among those who have been detained are a suspected islamic state member besides this two men that appear to be suicide bombers and also someone who is responsible for putting together explosive devices by the looks of it russia remains one of the primary targets for terrorists the number of attempts that had to be prevented by the russian police and special forces looks quite impressive in the year two thousand and sixteen forty two terror related acts from war to twenty seven teeing so far twelve out of thirteen the attack that couldn't be prevented though was of course that horrific suicide bombing on the st petersburg metro which took the laws of sixteen people in april. the e.u. migration commissioner
a house call for member states to get tougher on illegal immigrants and ensure they get deported across the story first artes and. there's certainly a change in rhetoric from the e.u. migration commissioner or dimitri opera marple as who one here ago is that the e.u. should work harder to accept more asylum seekers let me remind you that you're already has the highest asylum standards in the world and we have to uphold those and our commitment to protect those seeking protection. we need a strict and more effective policy for deportation too few migrants are being deported the european states have to do more his change of term really boils down to the e.u.'s relocation policy for the refugees and migrants is apparently falling apart i mean in the beginning it was mostly the eastern european states like hungary and poland in the baltic states being against that used welcoming policy for the migrants and refusing to take in more and more refugees but now we're hearing more voices of this content from other countries as well particularly italy
which really has been bearing the brunt of the migrants are the refugees arriving from africa as well as the middle east in search of a better life in europe since the beginning of this year we're talking about new the one hundred thousand migrants who have arrived in italy and we can really see that things are reaching a boiling point a situation is particularly worsening in the small italian town of. were locals have been protesting against building a new refugee shelter for under age migrants. ok did you know we had the police a minute approached a friend of mine and got into his car he was trying to come back we couldn't handle the situation any more i don't blame this people i blame the government i don't know what they're doing i'm just here to see that we can't take it anymore we don't want them here. because.
we give them a place to sleep and food we give them eighty euros a day but first we should be taken care of our own children our own people only. the men. a year out this town says ventimiglia simply has been left alone to deal with the crisis by themselves and he's one of the many who has been accusing the e.u. of not providing its countries with enough support to take in more migrants modern europe. the european union we've never seen do anything here i don't think the e.u. has given us any real support so the big expense for us comes from underage migrants who the town according to law has to take care of generally we will be reimbursed around home for the expenses there are tens of thousands of you're going to town is paying because of this earlier this year it's really even threatened to close down its ports to boat carrying migrants so we'll just have to wait and see how e.u. officials will react to the situation and it's free and also how they plan to tackle the ongoing migrant crisis in the. well speaking of italy room has already
tighten the screws on the various n.g.o.s operating at sea to rescue mine prince buck in july authorities impose the new code of conduct threatening groups which fail to comply won't be to italian ports the n.g.o.s say the new code impedes their work but it isn't the only obstacle faced by rescue groups they're also describing the libyan coast guard stance an explicit threat to doctors without borders save the children and see to suspend their migrant rescue operations in the mediterranean expert in modern european history paulo burton and deni sees officials are passing the buck as the situation worsens. while eighty is least in my the same time it is blaming this central charge of the state with the fact those states are perfect to shoot back so and the fact is the mayor was the local dog. and they are liking the situation we. they accuse each other all the passive look
and the same time the population they may to resign and they you is absolutely not the alkie of this issue has to be tragic i will say if. continue up the crowd we are going to face a very valuable emotions. always worth remembering that updates of bali the minute can be find on our twitter page will be here with a summary of the day's big news stories the top of the hour. about your sudden passing i have only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last turn. to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got
off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each day. but then my feelings started to change you talked about more like it was a case still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters mind gets consumed with this one to. speak to us there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its make. and take your needs. again this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington or washington controls the media the media over the voters elected a businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business
