failed. the world this is our international my names you know neil welcome to the program police in finland have confirmed they are treating. stopping which left two people dead as an act of terror four people have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack among them believed to have carried out the stopping. eighteen year old moroccan on was previously known to authorities we spoke to a journalist in the city of turku where. but to finish polish just had a press conference very interesting detail had been revealed about this terrorist attack here into a coup or lease considers the possibility that the american eighteen american
asylum seeker had to be purposefully targeting the main dip duvel indeed men actually got to indeed because they jumped in to protect the we mean close to death police also said that they are looking into the group of six maroko and possibly asylum seekers all of them the perpetrator who committed this stop being yesterday killed two people and wounded eight others himself in a hospital in intensive care before all the asylum seekers had been arrested overnight and the van hoosen song where at large possibly in europe some finnish police go pretty close together with the international police force with in support we also heard that there are two finnish people who died in this starving and three florrie nurse it's holly n a university researcher one breit and one swedish person who did all these three are still in hospital police had. given decided
that they think that this was a planned action and this was not just out of the blue so more details they did not disclose during the press conference but they clearly think that this action what's to it will have to be this yes that they had to. resort to two people dying on the streets of who had been very well planned and carried out brutality meanwhile police in the siberian city of surrogates have shot a man dead after he wounded seven people in a knife attack investigators say they're looking into a number of possible motives isel meanwhile has claimed it was responsible down off has more in what we know. officially the police have not confirmed anything at this point we know that this is a high profile investigation and also the police are looking into the possibility into reports that the suspect may have been mentally unstable we've seen the footage from the scene of attack some really graphic images of seven people have
been injured some of them apparently heavily and if it wasn't for a regular police dispatcher the outcome of the outcome of the incident may have been much much worse much more gruesome because as the man was going on a rampage stabbing people somebody managed to call the police and just a regular police dispatch showed up and eventually the took out the suspect now the details of the incident and still pretty scars but we will be bringing you more as we get it. protests have erupted in the spanish city of barcelona in the wake of this week's twin terror attacks which left fourteen people dead and over one hundred injured on t. islam demonstrators clashed with groups who had turned to oppose them. plowed into crowds of people in person. i. was i
i. was. was it was i mean while it house emerged that some of those caught up in the intox in spain had been affected by terrorism in the past chris pauley was one of them he survived the manchester bombing another is julia monaco the barcelona talk will serve third brush with terrorism while the family of scott outran who was also lost on lists has experienced two deadly events at partridge spoke with. what happened here in the heart of barcelona affected hundreds of people their relatives found their loved ones but what's perhaps even more tragic is that this also affected members of one particular family we spoke to a man who was caught up in the attack here on the ground on thursday while his
niece survived the horrors of the paris atrocity looking twenty fifteen at the back to class theater. it was painfully familiar you knew immediately what what was going on i mean i live this life my daughter live next to but. in paris my niece was just here for me it's not like for most people here a sudden unexpected. event for me this is the life i live. i've been working in these immigrant communities and i've been working on jihadi networks all across europe and i thought immediately that it's most likely a moroccan network was interesting because isis had always use spain as this principal. jumping off point for getting recruits into turkey and syria and the
question for me is while isis was in control the attacks were fairly local laws but now i ask myself that these networks are starting to pick up on on their own and whether they'll become just more widespread and cross your. yes the fruit seller across from the bar in mumbai in brussels what's going on he knew a hell of a lot more that was going on than the police but no one seems to be engaged in understanding what is going on in these networks security cameras captured the moment that sped past the shop on less that i'm less in barcelona but destin's can be seen trying to get it off its path islamic state later claimed responsibility for the atrocity we spoke to former british home office counterterrorism adviser john mchugh muti believes attacks of this nature are impossible to perfect. but we
always knew there was going to be blowback for what happened in iraq the vacuum that was created by the illegal invasion by coalition forces in iraq and the fact that isis filled that vacuum and they're now looking to him i mean it was predictable it's nothing that we didn't expect i mean it could happen almost anywhere to be fair sometimes these are unpredictable like for instance what's happened in finland recently a completely unprovoked attack despite the fact that their security services did say there was a risk it is a country that is otherwise neutral so it's very difficult to predict and sometimes these are types of completely random which makes it even more difficult to ascertain like i said random unprovoked like for instance what's happened in finland recently it is very very difficult i mean you'd have to literally be watching everybody and have logarithm set to pick up key words and phrases in every single conversation and communication across an entire continent that's remarkably
difficult these are random attacks and they are difficult to ascertain and to evaluate and assess. moving on the american president's chief strategist steve berman has left the white house even before donald trump took office bahman was seen as a key figure in his team however he spent only six months as the president's chief tactician a white house statement to explain the decision for a balanced departure as a neutral one in our return to being the executive chairman of breitbart news one commentator we spoke to diets that bannon's exit will help trump in the long run. and it is the one guy in the white house that the deplorable and like they know him they like him they admire him and the fact that he's been hated by the media and hated by all the lefties is just. icing on the cake for these people they will they like him they are the fact that he's being and that bennett is being attacked
raises him in there and there are. steam so the fact that trump fired him will hurt trump it's going to i think the white house polling is going to show him after this sinks in to everybody that it's hurt him with his own base it's not something he going to ford by the way to from a political standpoint or we have seen a lot of similar some tape because bonnin is the latest in a long list of departures from the trump administration following his exit bond and said he's ready to go to war for trump against his opponents on capitol hill as well as the media and corporate america and wherever there's what he added later the trump presidency that we fought for in one is over we still have a huge movement and we will make something of the strong presidency but that presidency is over and one analyst we spoke to believes the establishment is trying to push i challenge it. trump is still determined to fight unregulated
globalism to preserve the constitution of this country to reform the vast excesses in spending in our government spend six trillion dollars a year all governments inside the united states just on government six trillion dollars is an awful lot of money to be spending on government and he and he embedded others were trying to change that but they came up against i think some globalists well things stateside protesters in the capital city have poured red paint over a statue of a confederate in the tree officer and are demanding that it be taken down the monument represents officer albert right on it is that he did enjoy a dish reese where in washington scuffles broke god next to the statue when several men claiming to be journalist argued with protesters he should have racially divisive monuments is playing out across the country after the unrest in the city of charlottesville a week ago. meanwhile in new york city subway tiles the times square station will
not be altered due to their resemblance to the confederate flag and these are not confederate flags it is a design based on jus metric forms that represent the crossroads of the world and to avoid absolutely any confusion we will modify them to make that absolutely crystal clear artie's caleb maupin our reports from the city on the controversy which has brought america's historical figures to the forefront. not long ago we were out here on the streets of new york asking people if they thought that every monument to a slave owner should be demolished even if their founding fathers. did they stop madison avenue. and rename it yeah no i think it's fine so if one person is the first people there will be by the city you'd be a good idea to take it to. anything that's owned by a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be washington didn't go to war to
defend slavery and i think concerts is very important even though we didn't expect people to want to tear down monuments to figures that are almost sacred in american history like george washington or thomas jefferson the idea now seems to be gaining momentum he wasn't protecting my freedom i wasn't someone who my ancestors weren't deemed human beings to him and so to me i don't care if it's a george washington statue or a thomas jefferson statue or robert e. lee statue they all need to calm down and if those two aren't enough for you how about we try let's blow up mt rushmore that was actually the title of an article from vice media before they changed it to something a little less insatiable but the point was pretty much the same now it's certainly true that george washington and thomas jefferson owned slaves mr president look i think the issue is that you and robert e. lee both own slaves right. that was bad that was wrong but if you want talk about owning slaves you should talk about thomas jefferson whoa. abraham lincoln
certainly did not own slaves he was always an outspoken opponent of slavery which he ended up abolishing in the context of a civil war now you would think he wouldn't be a target for anger but the people who did this certainly think he is going to launch a full scale war against history you should probably expect that there's going to be collateral damage.
this type of actions should have been taken then perhaps fifty years ago with the civil rights movement this is whole situation has been created by certain media outlets like for example c.n.n. that they have you know pushed down on the narrative on the fact that you know that trump is a racist so that everybody that support a troublesome racist or or even going further that every single white person is racism i'm completely against this. discontent is growing in afghanistan over u.s. military policy within the country we get into the anti war and i say.
seemed wrong. but. just don't hold. me to these yet to shape out. he comes to advocate and indeed treatment equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. now if goober tanks that's a seventy billion dollars potential loss and you point out it's mostly private investors which would include let's say goldman sachs and others but if these folks like the goldman sachs suffer any losses at all remember they vanka on the government for a bailout so they could go to the government say blew up we need to bail out and the government because of staff by goldman sachs employees mostly. they would rubber stamp that bailout and then to pay for the bailout they'd have to go into people's pension accounts and they have to grab that money or wells fargo and go
into your personal account and grab that money. seventy minutes past midnight here in moscow welcome back frustrated off your growing increasingly onesie over the u.s. led military campaign in their country saying the civilian deaths and destruction are wielding few results in the fight against. can you see the damage house they dropped the mother bombs in that area we didn't get any benefit from the u.s. they target civilian houses but they don't target still militants they say their operation is to finish but in fact they don't most of its own they do target value
with islamic state groups are active. when the u.s. and afghan commandos came here they first dropped the mother of all bombs in the area in the last six months they only captured a one kilometer area from islamic state militants we don't know what the problems were why they didn't advance if i had two helicopters with one hundred armed men i could clear this valley of enemies in a matter of hours but they didn't do it meanwhile president trump spend several hours at a meeting with his military and foreign policy teams the scuffing the long awaited strategy date for the war in afghanistan he took to twitter to ninth's that decisions have been made but didn't specify the white house media release didn't give any details either and instead saying information would be released at the appropriate time or washington correspondent brings us more about. america's war in afghanistan has been ongoing for sixteen years and seen three different presidents
come and go on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan i know that many of you have grown weary of this conflict. as you are well aware i do not support the idea of endless war given what's at stake in afghanistan i am firmly convinced that we should make this extra effort. seventeen years or longer smores it's a very big decision for me i took over a mess and we're going to. make it a lot less messy the results while even u.s. generals have a rather bleak outlook on the progress made or not we don't understand it's my responsibility we're not winning in afghanistan right now mr chairman i believe we're in a stalemate at this point u.s. casualties in afghanistan are approaching the same numbers as the victims of the nine eleven attack the tragedy that triggered the u.s.
campaign the taliban still controls a significant part of the country and is making efforts to expand its influence investing in afghan forces at this point doesn't seem justifiable so far little has been achieved a new strategy settled on so what is team trump doing about it we know what the strategy was for the last eight years don't lose it hasn't worked when can we expect it congress united states to get a strategy for afghanistan that is a departure from the last eight years which is don't lose well on friday the president has national security team were moving over the options and according to some reports trump has option a and b. one boots on the ground preferred by military officials hoping a strategy to break this stalemate and is it going to require additional u.s. troops do believe it will involve additional forces to ensure that we can.
make the advise and assist mission more more effective or move out of afghanistan altogether and let private contractors help local afghan forces either way the u.s. defense secretary has indicated a decision is imminent we will move this toward a decision as i said i think it was yesterday publicly we are coming very close to a decision and to spend it in the very near future so for now we all just have to wait on the edge of our seats to see which way the american troops rollercoaster will roll this. i'm up or down. r.t. washington d.c. . he's president has hit back at germany's foreign minister with some scathing criticism after his signal queues them of interfering in germany's upcoming election. he knows no boundaries who are you to talk to the president of turkey know your place he's trying to teach us a lesson how long have you been in politics how old are you the latest began over
president obama's call for turkish nationals in germany not to vote for establishment parties including chancellor merkel's dot caused a major stir in the country's media outlets the foreign minister of gabrielle described it as brutal meddling in the country's internal affairs and on president and some sort of an attack in particular against merkel the chancellor has been facing a lot of public criticism from german officials today italy gabrielle for instance has accused merkel of khattala being to the u.s. after she pledged to boost nato spending the chancellor was also heckled at a rally she spoke out on thursday. this is. if there's no it's a. runner up a former german intelligence officer told us her no on this call will have little impact in the election. i don't think. that movie is the true
story of the nation very much because they've made up their mind already anyway. of the. grow do stuff from fox he's at all. has changed amongst the. german citizens. so i think it may only be. the so-called election recruitment. people you know. let's finish on a bright note quite literally because this skyline of the russian capital is being lit up with values and fireworks stop the international pyrotechnic festival the spectacular displays being put on by russia's biggest high tech company which is
