taking the german chancellor chats to you tube but delays at the same time facing a rival's on national t.v. . afternoon for me just past that midday this thursday lunchtime here in moscow money top story this channel is campaigning to try and help reunite orphaned russian speaking children who've been left stranded in iraq it's understood they were taken there by rather close parents who joined islamic state now we've been appealing for anyone who might recognize the youngsters shown in their reports to get in touch and it is indeed likely that we may have found some of the families among the responses we've. meantime in the iraqi orphanage itself there are still new arrivals coming in let me introduce next little mary and her story.
5:02 am
she's in a really fragile state she cries all through she says she's often in a lot of pain from her many injuries trying to describes next the old deal this little girl is going through. the phone call 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 as old if you. will study with us maybe. get us a good doctor 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
5:03 am
gradually got to the point when she began talking believe it or not mariam gets least stressed out when she speaks of her once i don't know just to kill the governor the chill button that. it took oakley for. a school killing you. but it was cool and. it seems the lucky escape happened shortly after that dreadful experience but here's mariam describing what happened just before she found herself at the epicenter of the war. that each witness says is that you just don't need to do that it was a. little bit of unknown that a lot 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.
5:04 am
a moment to see just. say. the least. this was a mom i knew only a mom or dad each did what kind of other horrendous things these people went through somewhere by the 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. will stay with us from below you. will . get there is a glimmer of hope that she can grow up in peace and reunite with her family grandparents. are quite good for the good. stuff. but that he doesn't like the.
5:05 am
iliad to train our teeth. if you've got any information about the little girl you saw there merriam or any other children with mention of the last couple of days please do contact us on the e-mail address you can see on your screens there at the bottom in the meantime we'll continue to try to campaign to reunite these skills boys with their relatives back home in russia. so. yes. so the i'm cool. calm it was only it was still. close up until mom of the school mom olivia they just showed. this was
5:06 am
a mom i know never mom or dad age. in the city or the other. thing is important. and is sure. it's. a fact that dad quickly made a film i did just. want to. finish his. thousands of people have turned for can live in charlottesville in the u.s.
5:07 am
state of virginia they gathered to condemn violence and hate after a woman died opposing a white supremacist rally on saturday two state troopers were also remembered they died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the rest of the wave of the start of the protest over the removal of a statue of a confederate general thorazine that would take them similar monuments across the country citing security reasons many landmarks in the u.s. are linked to controversial post militaries from the civil war in iraq but nonetheless many are reluctant to condemn them still column open is the latest. 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
5:08 am
honoring a related to slavery or honoring the people who fought for it be taken down perhaps 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 which changes every way i think if he represents you know a troubled past or because there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it should they stop madison avenue. and rename it yeah no i think it's fine so if one person is a fake people there will be a bible so if you could be
5:09 am
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 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. poet changes they very shouldn't be this even slaves right now in this day after all 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
5:10 am
the time of his death he had over three hundred even signed into law the infamous fugitive slave act which allowed slave owners to track down escapees all over the country think anything that's owned by a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be because this is times two thousand definitely they've had enough time to do it while washington didn't go to war to defend slavery and i think concerts 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. sun the way for activists on both sides online there's a further into the campaign to name the charlottesville protest as well the u.s. justice department scouring the people who visited
5:11 am
a website used to organize protests during double trumps inauguration ball outside of it. the gable probably think blacklist of your opponents may very well violate personal privacy and could just ruin lives however both sides are willing to play. who are the people interested in protesting during trump's inauguration the us justice department wants to go demanding that dream host a web service provider releases all the information of 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 content each of these dissidents viewed on the website. most recently targeted in charlottesville last
5:12 am
weekend twitter users embark on a mission to identify and shamed those who attended the infamous united the right rally the twitter account called yes your racist has even been posting i.d.'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 to charlottesville 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 innocence being caught in his net he's willing to take the risk but
5:13 am
the search for personal data of those who disagree with you smells like a witch hunt so i can see where it could. become. a blanket intimidation against everybody protesting if this caught on in you know right wing groups started publicizing the names of left wing people who participate leftwing people publicising the names of raping 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 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. more big stories today south korea may send a special envoy to pyongyang if the north stops its missile and nuclear tests meantime though the u.s. is taking a much harder line on the crisis on the peninsula. this president has made clear
5:14 am
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 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 wide jaclyn next looks at how american policy seems than right now to go against what the rest of the international community is pushing for the moment. 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 depth. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire
5:15 am
and fury. life the world has never see. the escalation in brest break certainly doesn't solve the problem the solution to this crisis must be political the potential consequences of military action. to even contemplate. the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal and agreement that took two years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. in 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
5:16 am
a key election. help bring an end to that trumps and just meeting fire with fire apparently at 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. 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
5:17 am
making friends with everyone. washington d.c. coming up here after the break germany's chancellor angela merkel is on the election trail we know that and she said the reaching out to younger voters so the facing rivals on national t.v. she's been chatting to. tell you about.
5:18 am
still you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles. for new socks for the tell you the lobby gossip the public record. highs and tell me you are not cool enough to buy their products. all the hawks that we all love walking. the german chancellor seems to be taking the easy road back home to the election triangle and put all facing our rivals on live t.v. by rejecting the terms parlay instead she was chatting to bloggers on you tube next looks at why she might be taking the softer option. angler merkel should be feeling
5:19 am
energized and a fresh after her three week break in the italian alps but judging from her latest 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. ok. this is stars. and this is me in a quite nice outfit there protects my skin. 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 and the chancellor was cool calm and collected in her answers for. are there any plans for electric cars so.
5:20 am
we need to create infrastructure which will motivate people to use electric vehicles many people are currently afraid 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 hard on that he was surprised that i impute to a blogger was chosen to conduct an interview with you many have said that my subscribers are not smart enough to ask the right question. 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. tell us honestly when you read donald trump's tweet by phrases like. what do you think about what comes into your head we should generally be careful with language language is often a step towards escalation and violence i stand by all means. against this.
5:21 am
instead of meeting with the legitimate media with people who are trained to get checked when the politicians are playing games shows their mirco as 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 if the softest question and answer approach that she could face is the i feel for a politician who wants to be. smooth sailing for angela merkel there but it certainly won't be so easy why should they stop her main rival martin schultes 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 to reject a 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 julia lection companies doesn't it is the arrogance of power nothing else the
5:22 am
ladies and gents in us. german broadcasters want to read this side of the bate so there's more room for spontaneity allowing the two politicians to challenge each other more 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. program the chancellor's representatives did not agree with such dramatic changes and refused to participate under these conditions with campaigning in germany stepping out of here before the election angle america seems to be making sure she's in the try thing seat and r.t. . meanwhile the german chancellor refugee policy is under intense scrutiny once again a syrian refugee right 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 simply recognized him in the street and go from santiago
5:23 am
report. the forty two year old was arrested in april last year and is accused of abducting and torturing 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 show narrative that guy is syrian army just like europe did with the good guys. you know it turns out what the for instance critics you can say right from the beginning these are good guys for the position to a lot socorro position. they're being hijacked by by by terrorists by you thought it was interesting the enough it appears the suspect came to germany as a refugee but was caught after he was recognized by
5:24 am
a man he allegedly tortured and here are some of the answers he put down in his 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 should breitling about it why not talk a new. course. you shouldn't so i. was

responsible for all these people who. drove. all. the verdict in this case as expected in september when 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. . so to raby has released a chilling warning in its bitter feud ongoing with cattle with t.v. news animation showing an aircraft being blown out of the sky is meant to explain to viewers the worst case scenarios if qatar violates riyadh's strict sanctions that were imposed in june. a country can send fighter jazz to force the plane down and then charge her with anything from posing
5:26 am
a threat to national security or putting civilian lives in danger what's more international law even allows the plane to be shot down if it's violating airspace classifying it as an enemy target especially in the military areas where there are new air defense restrictions so to arabia the united arab emirates egypt and bahrain all cut diplomatic ties with qatar after accusing it of backing extremist groups as part of the riyadh imposed blockade air land and sea links was severed with saudi arabia also wish list a tough demands which rigidly include expelling turkish troops stationed scaling back ties with iran and also closing qatari funded news outlets like. what middle east analysts we spoke to says the airline a warning now is part of a tried and tested method used by the saudis to weaken opponents. usually there's such. to a lot of principally designs by by this. to actually strike fear they are
5:27 am
sort of trying to impose their will trying to bring that to their knees and to trying to punish them to make it to make an example of them and to show that anyone who dares stand out challenge or defy saudi arabia and its leadership all the way it carries out its policies will pay deadly for it all these news stories and so much more to our side are called you can always have your say on everything you see there as well i'm kevin thanks for watching. the room.
