this is. better than. the c. . heard. president of the world bank. sent us an e-mail. the police say they're now investigating an act of terror. three offices near buckingham palace. the. stranded orphans are reunited with their relatives in russia after their parents took them to iraq when they joined islamic state in running a campaign to help with the safe return. public is demanding it be paid for to reparations to the country also struggles with its european neighbors over migration.
in moscow where it's now seven pm at five pm in the u.k. that's where we're going to start this hour police there. now investigating friday's attempted sort of attack near buckingham palace as an act of terrorism with the details. now know that the mets counter-terrorism command are treating this latest friday evening incident which did occur shortly after eight thirty pm friday evening near buckingham palace where three police officers were injured now what we do know in terms of what exactly on gravelled we the police have said that a twenty six year old man from luton has pulled up and pulled up in his car up to a police found with three armed police officers who had approached this car and
when they did they discovered that the man was trying to pull out a four foot sword while repeatedly shouting allahu akbar now of course a struggle ensued in which the three police officers who again were on arms they were injured two of them had to be taken to hospital the third one sustained my minor injuries and did need to be hospitalized all of the police officers were discharged quite quickly from hospital and we do know that they were able to and past eight this man with a c.s. spray and the attacker is now in custody at a police station in central london this latest incident as one more reason for concern because of course we have to keep in mind that throughout just recent months several terrorist attacks had taken place here in britain.
i talked to counterterrorism expert david lo who says it's hard to link the attacks across europe but terror groups will continue to inspire similar atrocities. i don't know if you can say this directly to our girls though some of these attacks again to be hard to prove was a direct amount given. by. the group really. or islamic state that these are the drivers of it's not with license or expect it
before coming here and it looks as though this school has inspired many individuals and when you compare this to spain where clearly there was you know about ten or so people working together be interesting to see what will come out from this one of your parts was this is a bit working on the road or do they have some form of assistance to this crisis thing you know there was the turkey or finland as well last week that was suspected to be a terrorist incident i mean looking at philip i mean one people ask your wife the people's source why spain. if you look at the group what they have they don't recognize any geographical boundaries if you know with them you're against them but it's their philosophy if there's a. christian or muslim world view it doesn't matter which is regarded nationalism if you look within you're against them and i think this is what we're starting to see there the incident outside buckingham palace happened just minutes
after a similar one in the belgian capital where a man was shot dead after attacking two soldiers with a knife police there are investigating that as terrorism also the man was a thirty year old belgian of somali origin who shouted a lie who act as he began his attack the authorities say he had two copies of the qur'an with him and a fake gun one of the victims has a slightly injured hand that incident took place in the st catherine district which is full of policy and restaurants and usually very busy on fridays a lawyer specializing in religious terrorism says europe's got used to living with terror. some of the leaders in other european countries have said that we just need to quote unquote get used to the fact that this is par. of our lives and it's very sad to see that in a continent such as europe which has had so many freedoms has such diversity of different people and has allowed those freedoms it is sad to see that people are now no longer surprised i mean this was a lesser attack nobody was killed no it's not
a mass casualty or massive billion casualties which is a more positive step but again this is a lot of backtracking they're having to go against major national you are european union policies which state that you know they shouldn't do much they shouldn't look at religion they should look at other things and they shorten the shouldn't police the streets for things like this when a public show of defiance against terrorism take a look at what's happening in barcelona right now people who massing on the streets to reject the deadly violence of the twin terror attack that killed fifteen will the one hundred twenty one a week ago now in boston the tens of thousands of people are expected to be out that rally and that is a symbol of wanting campbells to the south last night for those attacks israel no islamic states claimed responsibility for those twin attacks in which they used vehicles and spain's deadliest day in more than a decade the slogan of the march is i'm not afraid and the local council language
and some of them usually the king of spain is going to be taking part in that moment rather unusual for a moment to the public demonstration the tens of thousands amassed involved right now for a show of defiance against terrorism in the. next five russian speaking children who were stranded in war ravaged iraq have now been reunited with their families and it's believed the youngsters were taken to iraq by their parents who join dogs so he filmed them in a baghdad ofen age where they were taken off to the liberation of mosul we've also been helping to find the children's relatives in russia. target.
such a sad. must see. the children back home and can now have for a return to normal life among their families but though they're now safe some have heartbreaking stories of that time and war torn iraq and goes donald has the details. this is a second short a childhood for these lucky youngsters some of them like this boy are too young to remember anything but war and the stream missed world that surrounded them so to nerds parents decided to join i still and took him to iraq he was just two at the
time distant to remain an orphan stranded alone in baghdad he's aren't recognized him in an arty compay in to help the children. of. the earth. his story is similar to the rest of the children take ali he's mother took selfies with eisel flags and sent them to their family in russia ali's dad died right before his eyes it was only at. work. but his aunt was among the first relatives to get in touch with us. was. that you know. now he's going to leave with me and my children i want him to understand that he's still a child that from now on everything will be calm and peaceful of course he's going
to visit his grandmother but not right now for now i won't let him go anywhere i want him to forget everything. one of the most remarkable stories is that of a deja and fatima a former neighbor and friend in dagestan just seven years old recognized the sisters she took our video to the sister's grandparents we filmed the grandmother and father to find out whether the girls would recognize them despite having spent almost half of their lives thousands of miles from home in a war zone they hadn't forgotten ective got a phone call can i tell my good escape. i've tried to see. mom put it cleaned. up again mom that's good mom allegedly just so. this was a mom i know never mom or dad each day. and then there's
a. new person. to go he's going to lose don't. marry him she was scarred by the war both physically and psychologically. they teach a buddhist it's just that they just don't need to do that it would. do it but there were no middle class there was just they like to kill the governor chill but in that. it took okoye over. a school killing you know but it is a close look at pictures. they are the lucky ones all of them now home with family
again but for so many orphans back in iraq this ordeal is far from over eager donna r.t. . poland is demanding millions of euros in reparations for its losses during the second world war as the country struggles to against its european neighbors over multiple sticking points right now. in fact it could be said that pollan is demanding justice we are victim of the second world war the damage was not repaired in any way just the opposite today talking about her prey sense is a claim for justice and for what belongs to poland. not of the politicians with an eye on compensation either take a look at this the majority of poles support the idea of germany paying war damages sixty three percent want some compensation from berlin about a third disagree with that though the rest of us six percent unsure about what to do well it's not just the only issue is proving to be a stumbling block for poland and its european partners right now poland's long
being critical of the e.u. is migration strategy and earlier this week the polish interior minister blasted brussels policies saying accepting so many migrants into europe is effectively putting a noose around the continent's neck meantime poland's requested that the european commission withdraw legal proceedings against warsaw over its refusal to adopt man to treat migrant quotas and polish all the only e.u. country to fail to meet its obligations in taking in migrants it's joined by the czech republic and hungary on that score it was expected to take in seven thousand refugees but so far as you can see on the screen it's taken zero poland foreign ministers defended his country's position after the french president said it was so is isolating itself i think that baldwin statements are another arrow in the strategy of the country and the manifestation of how this country wants to position itself on the margin of europe's history present and future the state chose today to isolate itself in the functioning progress of. poland is not isolating itself
and has not been isolated it seems to me that president macro in carelessly follows media reports and doesn't know what's going on in our part of europe it happens sometimes journalist in eastern europe expert martin summers told me earlier poland's defiance against some e.u. policies will cause problems for the blog. poland's a big country and a major player. and of course if the no in cheating with the. european partners there's going to be problems further down the line of course the isolation themselves from the big players in the european union specifically the journals of the french of course they resent they feel as if they talked about the germans and the french and so on they're very skeptical of the policies being pursued boy european union. gratian for example but of course the opinion has got lots of other problems to resolve you know. the poles may dislike the european union but they get an awful lot of money from them and if they leave the bloc then the money from
seems wrong wrong just don't. get to say proud to stay active. and engaged because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. both news for you now the german government's ban the radical left wing web site blame for inciting violence during the g twenty protests in hamburg this summer a raid on the homes of activists behind the site uncovered. homes our europe correspondent peter all of the has the details. last month's g twenty and how violent unexpected and ferocious scale for the times seemed to catch german
security services by surprise. that. far as i can tell and i'm from. i've never seen. the autopsy and why those violent scenes were able to happen so the interior minister here in germany decided to close the website links saying it had been instrumental in organizing the violent scenes that marred the g twenty summit it's as model of first of all it is about a ban of the associations not a news outlet and from now on the operation of the site is with immediate effect
a crime even continues its operation then there will be reason to press charges that will surely follow starting from today. the web site was used to walk in ice attacks on security services as world leaders mixed at the big get together but finding out just where the website was based has proved harder that it may first seem we understand that some two hundred fifty officers were involved in searching five properties in the area around the city of freiburg as they try to find out the source of where the website was coming from the operation uncovered numerous weapons raging from tons to pursue slingshots all things that could be used to cause real damage if in the wrong hands which all begs the. question is this now the new normal when politically active groups such as the far involved should we expect the violent scenes we saw in hamburg to follow closely behind peter all
of germany. french police say they're finding it difficult to fulfill their duties during the country's lengthy state of emergency because of poor working conditions one officers unions even held a photo competition to draw attention to the problem from rats and cockroaches to leaky pipes and damaged equipment the photos show the shocking state of police stations across france in many cases it's apparent that even basic equipment has become unfit for use more than one hundred fifty photos of already been submitted by officers who say their jobs now lack dignity. i didn't expect to see such could just drive it photos from across france i was aware that working conditions needed improvement but i honestly did not expect to see a car which had done five hundred thousand kilometers or loggers flooded with water that happened in toulouse vehicles are no longer exempted for what we now regard is
terrorist measures there is a police station which is literally falling into the ground the soil is crumbling beneath it no i didn't expect to see such things as well as the deteriorating working conditions french police are also worried that they may not be able to cope with a day of strike action of marches over labor reforms which is shadowed for next month . i. was i. was i. was i. was was. tortured a lot were like to draw the interior minister's attention or the deteriorating
working conditions of the french police would also like to inform i was citizens that we cannot carry out our public mission correctly given the fact that we are in the state of emergency now and facing a terrorist threat over the last fifteen years instead of four guys in large scale negotiations on security issues is our government has limited its budget and implemented small measures the police force in france has been sick for dozens of years and we're not being given any means to change that since the beginning of twenty seventeen two of my colleagues have been burnt alive these tragedies haven't stopped some of my colleagues have been shot by terrorists every day we face violence. u.n. committee is warning that a deep racial conflict is brewing in the united states it follows the clashes in charlottesville and the widespread protests the followed but while reporting on the social rift between the left and the right the mainstream media in america might be
guilty of a bit of exaggeration as calum opens been finding out. every day you can hear from politicians and mainstream media that the usa is now a battlefield between the left and the right on usual intense polarization among the population and in the political arena. oh dear you quote from supporters racists are have to stand up there and nazis shows that you are racists on the ground with what about the all to left do they have any semblance of guilt the emerging racist ideology known as the all to write hysteria and the absurdity of some of the claims on the left and you look at how both camps look at most major political themes you'll see that there's not much of a division there. my
position and i think it coincides with the basic broad. left position real really left position in the united states is that all u.s. intervention abroad is wrong. we should focus on our home front. there's clearly an agenda by the military industrial complex which is operating soley for profit with a giant profit motive to in my opinion destabilize this part of the world when it comes to ties between big business and us politics both sides find it just as troubling. to have suggested that politicians should walk around like nascar drivers and have all their sponsors pasted on their suits is a great one because if they did that they'd just be multi-colored people with all
the emblems of these corporations that bought them most of the members of congress are millionaires and they didn't weren't millionaires when they were elected which tells you a lot money talks in america and frankly we need to strip money i think out of the political system completely and allow the average person to run and give them an equal chance the so-called left and right both have a distaste for the international monetary fund the world bank and treaties which have hurt the u.s. economy. what about mainstream voices this t p p says the gold standard in trade agreements to open free transparent fair trade t p p that's twelve pacific nations that's forty percent of the world's g.d.p. so we need to get in and write the standards so that we are writing the rule book
for the global economy for the twenty first century looks like the real gap these days isn't really between the left and the right but between a stablish with voices and mainstream media and those who challenge their narrative there's been leftist commentary that's come out from. organizations like the huffington post were suggesting well you know rome used to remove statues leader would die and they desecrate the statues remove them build new ones remove them build new ones remove them build new ones we'll guess one room collapsed it's a totally corrupted system at this point. and it's because we have this first amendment that the supreme court have said means that rich people can spend as much money as they want to buy the elections and that's exactly what they're doing. that's how the news looks so far they suffer by thanks for watching this is all too international.
would like to erase the past because it's an inconvenient truth that she was a horrible generation and made a lot of mistakes so in an attempt to erase her she wants to erase america's past so she's galvanizing and supporting the last isis of the american political spectrum. that. oh thank you thank you a. thank you thank you good night ok i want to spend the whole
first half of the show on something the mainstream media won't touch with a ten foot pole which is actually a lot of stories i mean in fact this is c.n.n. storage facility filled with eleven foot poles they used to keep the real news stories a brain and here's jake tapper using one to keep away an anti factory farm protester . not cool taps not cool but tonight let's talk about the fact that there was no russian hack of the d.n.c. server last year. is one of those it's one of those was the lovely miss big foot or the loch ness monster or a threesome that doesn't leave someone crying. the myth. and others go through the proof that there was no hack instead.
