she's in real fragile state she often cries she says she's often in a lot of pain from her many injuries. now describes the all deal this little girl's going. form called to that very same shelter. the voice on the other end says another girl has just been brought in from mosul. but it could be too early to talk for her any question and the girl may break down. in this psychological state she's struggling to answer a question as simple as what's your name got to be. i. just anybody else that. this is that. it's clear mariam is lucky to be alive there are scars right on her face surviving this head injury as almost a miracle. surrounded by other kids in caring shelter workers mariam gradually got to the point when she began talking believe it or not mariam gets
4:03 am
least stressed out when she speaks of her once just to fill the bill in the chill button that. it took oakley for. a school killing you. like it. it seems the lucky escape happened shortly after that dreadful experience but here's maryam describing what happened just before she found herself at the epicenter of the war. they teach this. is that they just don't need to do that it would. if it were known that a lot of mariam is not the only girl who has told us about the horrors by some river that's apparently where many children lost their mothers. how much of this is just. letting. the living.
4:04 am
mom i know never mom or dad each did what kind of other horrendous things these people went through somewhere by that river in mosul we can only guess mariam doesn't remember anything more or just can't talk about it we ask about her father but she can barely see a thing but we knew. the stimulus bill did. you . get there is a glimmer of hope that she can grow up in peace and reunite with her family grandparents. would be a good wash does it bothers. us that he doesn't like the. elite betraying our teeth.

4:06 am
the specific political or. religious thing is important. because lindsey was. one of the more conservative ideas you're going to use. it's. a trick to get out quickly echo might get disclaim. to. punish. fish. also today thousands of people have turned up for candlelit vigil in charlottesville in the u.s. state of virginia they gathered to condemn violence and hate for
4:07 am
a woman died opposing a white supremacist rally on saturday two state troopers were also remembered they dug in a helicopter crash while monitoring be on rest below the wave of violence started with a protest over the removal of a statue of a confederate general authorities now taking down similar monuments across the country sometime security reasons many in the u.s. had links to controversial personalities from the civil war but many people are reluctant to condemn them to khaled mopeds goal. here outside of st john's episcopal church in brooklyn there was a monument commemorating confederate general robert e. lee it was affixed to this maple tree and it was here for over one hundred years now in light of the violence in charlottesville related to a statue of robert e. lee it's been removed all across the country activists are demanding that symbols honoring a related to slavery or honoring the people who fought for it be taken down perhaps
4:08 am
this is sensible after all slavery is a barbaric practice millions of people died coming to the united states millions more worked to death on plantations however getting rid of the symbols related to slavery might not be as easy as it sounds. this is new york city's madison avenue it's named after u.s. president james madison now james madison owned over one hundred slaves and in his personal letters he said some pretty reprehensible things about black people do you feel like there's a little hypocrisy that we're changing things in the south but not changing things here absolutely want to change every way i think if he represents you know a troubled past or is there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it should they stop madison avenue. and rename it now. i think it's fine so if one person is a fake people there will be a bible so you'd be a good idea to take it to these would be a different kind of but i think a lot of people in the south do want to take the statues down it's not just people
4:09 am
in the north that are trying to take down. now we're here in thomas jefferson park thomas jefferson was the ideological founder of the american republic and he was also a slave owner not only did jefferson own hundreds of slaves he actually impregnated one of them there's a number of african-americans living today who can trace their genealogy back to thomas jefferson and one of his slaves sally hemings before him having slaves he was a you know this the changes they very shouldn't be this even slaves right now and does they have heard of them but. that's not the way to get out. get out late try to kill the show. the first president of the united states george washington started owning slaves when he was just eleven years old by the time of his death he had over three hundred even signed into law the infamous fugitive slave act which allowed slave
4:10 am
owners to track down escapees all over the country i think anything that's owned by a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be because this is times two thousand and they have only they've had enough time to do it while washington didn't go to war to defend slavery and i think consequence is very important in these tough situations george washington's faces on the one dollar bill he's often referred to as the father of our country slavery didn't just exist in the south it existed all across the united states getting rid of everything related to slavery opens up an interesting can of worms might not be as easy as some people seem to think kaleb oppen artsy new york you know well now the ramifications of it the hudson the way for activists on both sides online there's a firm. isn't it a campaign to name the charlottesville protest as well the u.s. justice department scouring for people who visited a website used to organize protests during donald trump's inauguration is boys out
4:11 am
to use america they gave a publishing blacklist of your opponents may very well violate personal privacy and could just ruin lives however both sides are willing. who are the people interested in protesting during trump's inauguration the u.s. justice department wants to go demanding that dream host a web service provider release all the information of the users who visited a website launched by the organizers of the demonstration and that's roughly one point three million users now the web host is trying to fight back in essence the search warrant only aims to identify the political dissidents of the current administration but it seems to identify and understand what concerns each of these dissidents viewed on the website. most recently targeted in charlottesville last week and twitter users embark on a mission to identify and shamed those who attended the infamous unite the right
4:12 am
rally the twitter account called yes your racist has even been posting id's of the marchers their communities need and need to know who these people are and what they're trying to do to our nation while there is no defending the violence of neo nazis in charlottesville the amateur investigators search for racists seems to have missed by kyle quinn a professor from arkansas was falsely identified as a right wing charlot school demonstrator the man runs a lab doing medical research and has nothing to do with white supremacists however he received scores of hate messages after his address was posted online you have celebrities and hundreds of people doing no research online not checking facts i've dedicated my life to helping old people trying to improve health care and train the next generation of scientists and this is potentially throwing a wrench in that the founder of the yes your racist twitter page says that. despite the chances of innocents being caught in his nap he's willing to take the risk but the search for personal data of those who disagree with you smells like
4:13 am
a witch hunt i can see where it could become a blanket intimidation against everybody protesting if the squad on in you know right we group started publicizing the left we knew it would produce a lot of people publicizing the names of raving people who participate. so it could be a backfire on whoever tries to do it because it could start becoming the thing to do and that's the double edged sword of the social media that you know you can use it to organize but you can also use it to shame embarrass or intimidate. south korea may send a special envoy to pyongyang if the north stops its missile and nuclear tests meantime the u.s. has taken a much harder line though on the crisis in the peninsula. as president trump has made clear the era of strategic patience is over with regard to north korea all options are on the table in the united states will continue to bring the full range
4:14 am
of american power economic and diplomatic until north korea abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs those comments come despite the fact that north korea earlier said it would hold off on strikes and donald trump called pyongyang's decision very wise jaclyn next looks at how american policy seems to be against what the international community is pushing for right now. when it comes to foreign policy it seems that trump is trying to twist the knife into some of the most volatile international issues. there's fire and fury for north korea while the international community is calling for deescalation in the region trying to spouting some of the most aggressive rhetoric that's been heard in decades. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see. the escalation in breath rick certainly doesn't solve the problem the solution to this crisis must be political
4:15 am
the potential consequences of military action are tool raef week to even contemplate. the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal an agreement that took two years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. and response to washington's threats of more sanctions to promise so that they can pull out of that deal all together but america's u.n. ambassador doesn't appear all that concerned iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage the nuclear deal must not become too big to fail. and then there is venezuela a country divided after months of violent protests and the run up to a key election.
4:16 am
help bring an end to that trumps in just meeting fire with fire apparently the white house wants to kill a divided society and political scene with more violence we have troops all over the world in places that are very very far away venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and dying we have many options for venezuela including a possible military option if necessary whatever happened in terms promises of making the world a less nasty place to live i would love to be able to get along with everybody right now the world is a mess but i think by the time we finish i think it's going to be a lot better place to live for now it seems the president has zero intentions of making friends with everyone. our team washington d.c. will continue to follow the twists and turns following this coming up it's slow and steady for the german chancellor on the election campaign trail she's been shot in
4:17 am
the bloggers but seems she's been avoiding facing our rivals on national t.v. at the same time we'll examine why that may be. seemed wrong. just. to. get to shape out just because the ticket and engagement equals betrayal.
4:18 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground. again hope he says there's going. to the german chancellor seems to be taking the easy road back to the election trail after a holiday. put off facing her rivals on live t v she said she rejected the terms on offer this summer rather instead she's been chatting to bloggers on you tube. why is she might be taking the softer option angle or merkel should be feeling energized and a fresh after her three week break in the italian alps but judging from her latest
4:19 am
election campaigning looks like she's still in vacation mode the chancellor spent time talking politics with several young you tube celebrities here in germany one of them is a video blogger that specializes in german izing american pop hits another is a lifestyle blog where the shares her experiences and ventures with her viewers oh and there's also a fashion and beauty blogger. this is. and this is me in a quite nice outfit that protects my skin and how these beauty and tech bloggers were chosen to speak to merkel at the height of her campaign we don't know but hot political topics were brought up in the chancellor was cool calm and collected in her answers for how are there any plans for electric cars. we need to create infrastructure which will motivate people to use electric
4:20 am
vehicles many people are currently afraid that they will be able to get to work but won't be able to get back home and that's what is your favorite smiley the smiley with the small. i'm just going to go he was surprised that i would be blogger was chosen to conduct an interview with you many have said that my subscribers are not smart enough to ask the right questions because. it seems silly to me that some consider people from the beauty industry unable to make the right decision in the elections this is a everyone is able to. tellus honestly when you read donald trump's tweets with phrases like locked and loaded what do you think about what comes into your head up at the thought we should generally be careful with language language is often a step towards escalation and violence i stand by all means against this. instead of meeting with the legitimate media with people who are trained to detect
4:21 am
when the politicians are playing games chancellor merkel has a group of amateurs with whom she can play and that's what's happening here it reminds me of a prize fighter who is that free to meet a real challenger it is the softest question and answer approach that she could face it is the i deal for a politician who wants to be a. smooth sailing for angela merkel there but it certainly won't be so easy when she faces off her main rival martin schulte in september. for everybody it should be clear what it means when a central government and when the headquarters of a governing party systematically decide through the debate on the country's future when a party comes and says we do not have anything to do with this and we do not debate this journey election campaigns that's and it is the arrogance of power nothing else the ladies and gentlemen are. german broadcasters want to leave this side of
4:22 am
the bate so there's more room for spontaneity allowing the two politicians to challenge each other more but america's team reportedly threatened to cancel so the broadcasters gave up there were forty five minutes provided for each block of the t.v. prog. the chancellor's representatives did not agree with such dramatic changes and refused to participate under these conditions with campaigning in germany stepping up a gear before the election angle america seems to be making sure she gets writing seat and r.t. very late meanwhile the german chancellor refugee policy is under intense scrutiny once again a syrian refugee now is being tried in germany for alleged war crimes the suspected former commander of the free syrian army is accused of torturing civilians in the city of aleppo local media reports that he was arrested after one of his alleged victims recognized him in the street to go francis and the argos got more. the forty two year old was arrested in april last year and is accused of abducting and
4:23 am
torching civilians in aleppo he allegedly led a militia group of one hundred fifty men links to the free syrian army considered one of the so-called moderates in the west this is a very comfortable to use for the narrative that guy is a syrian army like you're a bit of the good guys and you know it turns out what the for instance critics you can say right from the beginning these are good guys on the opposition to a lot so opposition is. being hijacked by by bioterrorist by jihad it is interesting the enough it appears the suspect came to germany as a refugee but was caught after he was recognized by a man he allegedly tortured and here are some of the answers he put down in his
4:24 am
refugee application do you have no knowledge about war crimes committed in syria or crimes against humanity in particular about fide as a taken civilians the perpetrators who commit these crimes or syrian regime and terrorists from isis can you name offenders by name i know no names as an alleged rebel commander who is now being prosecuted for torture is the answer seem quite well expected and this baffling story by the way has barely been touched by the mainstream media among the few mentions it's had in germany it seems the coverage is making sure no one things badly of the free syrian army of course they're not the bad guys just good willed rebels according to the findings of the federal prosecutor's office his troops pursued primarily self-serving interests why nobody is writing about it why it's not top news is because. people. shouldn't so on.
4:25 am
google we have to go fishing and arity it was responsible for all these people. coming. up you know you old guys the verdict in this case is expected in september one germany set to vote in its general election there is little chance this quite explosive story will make any more headlines francis and giago r.t. . that's the drop so far this thursday so much more from as a cause to call me tom i'm back in our house now the next live update here this world's part right after the break. the pharmaceutical industry the medical insurance industry and the bankers they are profiting from the american holocaust and the american economy is so dependent on
