who the suspect barcelona have crossed into france we don't have any specific information on this but it cannot be ruled out as the manhunt for eunice. the chance he's already slipped across the border. investigations launched in germany off the claims members of an elite special operations army unit. and played music party. i still suffers another blow in syria as the russian defense ministry says a large islamic state convoy heading to day it is or was hit by an airstrike killing more than two hundred terrorists.
good morning from moscow just gone. international with me daniel hawkins a spanish police say it is possible the man behind the wheel in the deadly barcelona van attack has fled to france is believed to have been part of a twelve member terrorist cells responsible for killing fourteen and injuring one hundred more in spain last week or the mother of the boston attack has pleaded for him to surrender the families of other alleged perpetrators say the men behind the attacks who are believed to be no older than twenty four were brainwashed and the decision to plow vehicles into crowds in two separate cities in the deadliest terror attacks in spain in thirteen years was forced upon them. well you love somebody you we're all shocked the family in spain is also shocked the puzzling question is how sami and the likes of sami became terrorists. hasn't it that you
would never suspect that your son a relative would do this i would tell him to surrender please surrender to the police where parents surrender to see if the police can capture the ones that have done this to you otherwise other kids will be recruited it's not about these kids it's about what was done to them what they have been told and to want. the police suspect that mom who masterminded the attacks was killed in a recent explosion and that's where it's believed the terrorists so had a bomb making factory and had been planning attacks on a much larger scale with the manhunt for the barcelona driver continuing what i guess the of breaks down the how open a new borders have previously played right into the hands of jihadists on the run. in this day and age of tootle surveillance radicals who are often known to police could move down more than one hundred people in broad daylight and get away
they can cross twenty six european countries and there won't be a single border checkpoint the entire way could the suspected barcelona have crossed into france we don't have any specific information on this but it cannot be ruled out frightening isn't it you would have thought europe might have learned its lesson the first time around or the second or the third how many terror attacks of their even been in the last three years the sad and tragic truth is europeans have largely lost track. broken by the attacks in paris nice berlin stockholm manchester london and other cities these days unfortunately the wave of international terrorism is brutally hitting us and turning barcelona and campbell's into the latest scenes of terrorist injustice here is a little map of recent europe trips undertaken by jihad ists i miss our marie
runs over almost seventy people in burlington and makes it as far as italy before he's accidentally court. mohammed travelled all the way from greece to france through at least eight european countries with a fake passport before blowing himself up in paris salah adel salam involved in paris attacks that killed and injured need five hundred people traveled through at least nine european states before the attack he was on terror watch lists and they eventually found him in belgium often it's been the case that the powers that the. authorities already had weren't being used but notwithstanding that they then introduced the authorities the government's new legislation giving new powers to the police and security services notwithstanding that it wasn't any lack of those
powers in the first place that led to the intelligence failures and it may well be that that's true here and the same applies to border controls while it remains a possibility doing in may have crossed the spanish border anybody that knows that border as indeed is the case throughout very much of western europe those borders are extremely porous you can go across as a car in a car in the back of a vehicle or even walk across in some cases they say it isn't punishment itself that deters crime it's the inevitability of punishment but thanks to europe's open borders perspective terrorists can be sure no matter what they always have that chance to slip away. in syria suffered another significant blow off to its convoy was hit by the russian air force says the ministry of defense the air strike result in multiple vehicles
including tanks being destroyed along with i mean while more than two hundred terrorists were eliminated and the convoy was heading to the besieged city of day it is or where i said it's trying to make its last stand in syria the russian ministry of defense says the defeat of islamic state there would be a strategic blow for the group's whole presence in the country and i'm up by you can see in front of me used to have a lot more black are still occupied areas even as early as this august however a lot has changed due to a series of successful operations carried out by the syrian army with the support of russian. i'm going to.
avoid clashes erupted in bali on sunday when anti fascist activists confronted a neo nazi march. europe's ultra right groups gather there to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the death of hitler's top rudolf hess was a heavy police presence on the streets in a bid to separate the two groups but that didn't prevent impassioned verbal spots the sending into fist fights. when you nazis marching in the streets is not the full extent of it recently an investigation was launched the made allegations that members of an elite unit of the german all me had been given nazi salutes and playing near nazi rock music at a party. has been looking into this story. have you ever heard of germany's special
forces command that's right probably not because this is a german special ops team the process to join which the so-called a rigorous only handful of soldiers are accepted out of hundreds for operations and conflict zones all over the world just recently a young woman came forward in german t.v. channel claiming that she had been invited to a k. ask a farewell party her task was to police the commander with the prize but it's alleged that chaos broke out nazi salutes were flying all over the room alcohol was being consumed to excesses and even a pig's head was being thrown about all to a backdrop of a german nazi song being blasted out of the speakers a witness we called some of the lyrics showing how some feel nostalgic for the once powerful regime we are examining the incident the investigation may eventually be taken over by the stuttgart attorney and to lawful after ensues or symbols have not
been confirmed so far headlines about right wing extremism in the ranks of german armed forces have been plaguing its military with some reports suggesting more than twenty five hundred cases have been registered in germany and a necessary distraction to the many threats it's facing as of now sherry as problem is. most of the digital military is not really a threat and the more. of course are the military this is the model that is not excepted by the majority of people of your country when you were in the military and you are. expected by your friends. because you're going to take my last three approaches you are not really into this and you don't get the best people so they're going to tear it you see the military and it really has a crisis that's. all that it is simply in the. if
you haven't read the libertarian reverted to three courses you have a lot of mistakes and there are a lot of the mistakes that happened. british prime minister to resign may has rejected an appeal by survivors and families of the nine eleven attack victims they were demanding the publication of a u.k. report into the role of saudi arabia in funding islamic extremism we respectfully urge you to release the report now finished or unfinished we lost you to consider all the victims of state sponsored saudi finance terrorism their families in the survivors in the u.k. and all over the world the u.k. now has the unique historic opportunity to stop this killing spree of one harvest inspired terrorists the longer saudi arabia's complicity is hidden from sunlight the longer terrorism will continue now the reason for the pleas rejection side of her letter from the u.k.
home office was the amount of passed on classified information involved in the report is so resonates with the prime ministers and michelle position when she was pressured on the matter by the opposition in parliament. last week the prime minister refused to make public a report on the foreign funding of extremists in the u.k. despite pressure from all sides of this house and beyond the survivors of nine eleven last night also urging her to make this report available who she explained at her refusal is simply because the contents of the report would embarrass the government's friends in saudi arabia or is it because ministers care rather more about arms sales to riyadh than they do about public safety. it is absolutely nothing to do with that there is there is certain confidential information in the reports that means that it would not be appropriate to publish it but my right under friend the home secretary has made it available on a pretty council basis to opposition parties in two thousand and two the us congress began its inquiry into the nine eleven attacks two years later the
families of nine eleven victims sued saudi arabia over reports of links between saudi government officials and the hijackers declassified pages of the inquiry report later confirmed those links with congress that approving a bill that allowed families to take legal action against the gulf kingdom. of saudi arabia in turn has denied any involvement in those attacks brought eagleson lost his father in the tragedy he says the fact the u.k. report is being kept secret shows otherwise. it's very clear to us and all the nine eleven family members that there is a relationship that exists between our government and the u.k. government between saudi arabia that our governments do not want to inconvenience so they do not want to interrupt this report that we're requesting to be released would be a very inconvenient truth to both governments this report makes clear connections between terrorist financing and the government of saudi arabia right now we are in a legal case with saudi arabia and stands right now we're going to court and court
in the united states and we hope the court is really the only way that we think that the truth will prevail is just another small setback for us we've been facing setbacks for the past sixteen years but we don't give up we think that ultimately light needs be shed on their resume and this report will do that. the tensions on the korean peninsula the south korea and the u.s. drills on not just this break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to be rich. but you'd like to be prosperous like the before three in the morning can't be good . i'm interested always in the waters among all. this shit.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected a businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. welcome back to the program tensions remain high on the korean peninsula as the
u.s. and south korea have started large scale joint war games this comes amid continuing anger from pyongyang prior to the drills north korea threatened a merciless strike and washington of the risk of uncontrollable nuclear war the annual show of force will last for around ten days it will simulate a military conflict with an isolated country join gangs say the drills practice and invasion while the u.s. maintains their defensive in nature this year over seventeen thousand american troops are taking part in drills which involve land sea and air exercises along with computer simulations that's the spot two of the key mediators in the north korean crisis russia and china are proposing a halt to the war games in exchange for a freeze of pyongyang's missile tests greg realit from the korea policy institute believes the exercises are a provocation but these are mainly current puter relations road and physical exercise of however one of the simulator simulating war with north korea that's a provocative. step in the. right on north korea of the united states.
idea of diplomacy through prior threats and. not the former through it all through with the pairing of. threats have it work north korea there for more threats that are needed backwards way of thinking of the military exercises come off of north korea earlier said it would hold off on strikes handing the next move to washington and let's just take a look at our the recent crisis between pyongyang and washington has unfolded.
stand together. in the months and years ahead with the people of south korea. this is a very dangerous situation because. what has happened in the past when north korea has actually attacked. it has always been that it is attacked south korean military or naval targets honestly if it is attacked american forces i mean there would be retaliation again you should ever think of the
declared intention to use what could be a nuclear armed. weapons as an empty threat because it is possible to use them and they have been used before i don't think that north korea wants to risk a nuclear war i mean it would have to be crazy to do so and actually is not at all crazy. a u.s. guided missile destroyer has collided with an oil tanker in the strait of malaka located between malaysia and indonesia as a result of an accident five navy sailors are injured and another ten i'm missing a search and rescue operation is currently under way in the wake of the collision at sea president trump has posted a tweet saying all thoughts and prayers are now with the crew members this is a second similar accident in the last three months back in june a few around with a warship the u.s.s. fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel off the coast of japan seven sailors were killed in the incident
and three more injured. back to the middle east now where israeli authorities have raced to the ground the house belonging to the family of a palestinian terrorist who reportedly stabbed and killed three israelis last month according to locals the suspect's father mother and three brothers have been detained as well we wanted to speak to the uncle of the alleged terrorist. but didn't get a lot of bad luck and i won last night about two am we woke up and told the bulldozers are heading away to demolish our house we got dressed and about ten minutes later the only came because they started destroying the inside walls of the house with sledgehammers and then the bigger came up and started hitting the house from the front and back you seen yourself was lived nothing. demolition is widely used punitive measure by israel in retaliation for acts of terror committed by palestinians since twenty fifteen alone the practice has resulted in the
displacement of one hundred forty nine people that includes sixty five children human rights watch has repeatedly said destroying family homes violates international law no demolitions ever have been taken against jewish people who carried out terror attacks our palestinian activist told us it's a form of collective punishment. before doing anything or even conducting the investigation they demolish the homes clearly here israel is using no law actually they are functioning outside the ranks of proper law demolishing people's houses and families houses is the worst form of collective punishment but more than that israel and israeli army practices this collective punishment is also discriminatory in the sense that when an israeli jewish person commits an attack on palestinians including for instance burdening a list and like has happened today on. man from
a young boy from kabul for their family nothing is done to their family nor act of punishment like that like demolishing their house to explain you have two systems of laws for two people living in the same area one law for the israeli jewish people and another low for palestinians and that is called an international law a system of apartheid and racial discrimination. good intentions without proper knowledge behind them sometimes he'll don't bear acing results and that's exactly what happened with the new road safety campaign by transport for london.
no all of us were headscarves i don't wear a headscarf and i know many people many of the people who don't that is not a function on who we are as muslims muslim women come in all shapes forms and sizes from all different types of nationalities different backgrounds different ethnicities the company itself though wasn't trying to me it was misguided on the fact that so many people would have looked at this company and signed off on it before she went when tao makes me think that perhaps transport for london they they perhaps need more diversity training. radio host john gaunt believes such campaigns receive the exact opposite of what they were supposed to do. this is just a classic example of politicians desperately trying to appease the muslim minority and it backfired spectacularly because not only has it been
a waste of two million pound issue so upset sections of the community look these children didn't have to be identified by their religion who couldn't miss shouldn't come into play you gave it to issue just about road safety but it's typical of people in the local councils to act in this way and this kind of madness is called a size ation this kind of treading on eggshells around ethnic religious minorities needs to spill. all around up from me for now we'll be back with more headlines were on the wall then off now meantime of course all stories on or off social media .
seem wrong. to me but yet to shape out these days become active. and engaged because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. lemme warhawks selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they believe the new socks credit tell you that what we gossip and tabloid bias files a little one day. telling you are not cool enough and that's why their lives all the hawks that we along with our audience
one dose may not only be to stay but also. to the relationship between kids sure it was proved suggested no proof and a fairly strong one there were two thousand routes involved in the study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the advertising. really increase the risk of cancer and i chose a means of known to use damage in the launch of test is it a shared skin. this is a. this is true by independent scientists. industry. compensation for my time as well as the others why is that me too happy. to like what we are doing if you want to learn. a. lot of.
big business against. this started. oh and welcome to cross talk where all things are considered i'm peter lavelle for many particularly his critics to trumpet ministration is nothing less than chaos on steroids for some who know the president this is merely business as usual for him is this a winning strategy for the president america and the world. crosstalk
in the trump presidency i'm joined by my guest james chatteris in washington he's a former advisor to the u.s. senate republican leadership in williamsburg we have andrew langer he is president of the institute of liberty as well as host of the language network and in london we crossed to interject palmer he is a professor of international politics at city university of london all right gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate jim let me go to you first in washington an article in politico a couple days ago caught my eye and it it is. really said a lot to me about the presidency under donald trump good and bad and in between and the title is to america it looks like chaos for trump it's just tuesday i think that really kind of sums it up because he there is some kind of method to his madness so the left and the democrats they don't understand and they don't like it but there seems to be something to it we also had.
