8:05 pm
among the other children returning to their families this week with nine year old marion she was injured and very fragile when taken in by an orphanage in baghdad another is allie whose aren't was among the first to contact us he's only three years old just like seoul to norad he can see here his relatives say he's already we're just into every day life at home. now to berkeley in california where a right wing pro trump mobs has led to a tense stand off the activists were a volley outnumbered by a so-called rally against hate. god because. i have you go oh ok. i very happy i ninety four here outside of course a civic center in downtown berkeley california and as you can see around me there's a huge crowd of people calling themselves anti fascist protesters these are people that assemble to calendar
8:06 pm
a right wing rally that was called the for today for this afternoon on the slogan say no to marxism well these are both here that object to a number of the people involved with that recorded right wing rally i consider them to be white supremacy and fascism assemble to denounce it especially in the aftermath of charlottesville so it's quite in the first crowd that is assembled here in front of the civic center what an interesting group of folks as you can see behind me here we have a post that generally referred to as the black bloc you know they've got goggles on now they're covered in black masks sometimes come in an arc is a grouping tom we've got other people here all with different marxist groups are talking about socialism and communism while we have a lot of people sign to say things like say no to hate the city of berkeley has actually rallied around the slogan for a living i did against a that's been hanging from all the public buildings it's been displayed in the stores around the city that we've heard so far about three or arrests on two people were arrested for having mass to their faces as we can see that a lot of interest. but there were two people arrested grabbing masks over their
8:07 pm
faces and there was an additional individual who was a far right a star was arrested for getting into some kind of scuffle and his call to patient with one of the left wing protesters he has been arrested now there's a number of police on the scene of the civic center was blocked off earlier they were searching anyone who came in to make sure that they didn't have any weapons of any kind this is just one illustration of the ongoing division that continues to take place across the united. states now recently there was the incident in charlottesville emily charlottesville there was there was a rally in support of the confederate monument called by some white nationalists and there was a huge counter protest to that as well and then one of the one of the right wingers drove his car plowed his car in with protesters actually killed one person and nineteen other people were injured in the aftermath of that and donald trump very famously condemn violence on both sides sparking anger and as you can see out here in the streets of berkeley many people are outraged about donald trump linking donald trump and his supporters directly to white supremacist. iraqi military says
8:08 pm
it has retaken tal a fall one of the last islamic state strongholds in the country but the u.s. backed the fence it has come as a heavy price for civilians. the operation began a week ago and i saw militants have dropped back from taliban but they still hold nearby territory heard gassed up reports from the recaptured town. we're at the airport of talent five mia five kilometers from the city itself where the operation to liberate the elephant is underway this actually serves as a sort of said hold based serving the entire operation and soldiers from the front lines they come here to rest and to eat before heading back there exultant they say
8:09 pm
that the operation is almost over they've actually even got a message for isis. i have a massive leave they are world now you have no place here will hunt you down wherever you are there jubilation however is a stark odds with what the people of talent have gone through what it was miserable we were under occupation imagine that and you know they turned the mosques into prisons there were thirty to forty people there we don't know what happened to them they demanded that molests recruited young people to join eisel and when they refused they locked them up there was no electricity no food nothing to eat we were almost dying there was no work and no man to sing my kidneys have almost failed it's been three years without medicine or anything the tens of thousands of iraqi soldiers were mobilized for this operation the u.s. led coalition has brought to bear its full mice its people fleeing from talent and
8:10 pm
more than thirty thousand have escaped from the city escaped from the fighting they had to brave walking through the you put in deserts which is all there is here for ten twenty hours to get. a safety to find water to find food medicine medical supplies and indeed treatment and from what we've heard many of them didn't make it but the commander of the operation he spoke to us and he said they expect to be done in another four days. everyone thought deliberation would be difficult and we would be two months the deliberations room is complete another interesting development that we've learned is that on the twenty fifth of august four hundred families of isis fighters were let out of the city the details are murky and nobody knows exactly what happened but the commander of the operation and he previously was the chief of the mosul operation he told us that indeed this had happened he
8:11 pm
confirmed it but again without details and what about the four hundred families that escaped that escaped. did you fail to catch them what did you let them do for humanitarian reasons. we have a system we hand of all the refugees to the iraqi government and they handle them till the battle and telephone is far from over from what the soldiers tell us most of the civilians have managed to get out managed to flee nevertheless there are still thousands of people trapped in a shrinking area where isis still holds sway and where they still haven't been defeated and they have a terrifying few days ahead of them the operation but striking similarities with the recent campaign and nearby mosul which left thousands dead the two cities well i still strongholds besieged by u.s. backed iraqi forces thousands of civilians were trapped inside and the one to call them and many of those who tried to flee were killed in the crossfire and those who
8:12 pm
remained quickly ran out of basic supplies. as the operations have been moving forward of course we see that there are a lot of others to get in this have been affected of course the people in the last one will see similar consequences to what the d.c. to the move will not suffer and from the lack of full knuckles water the necessities the people who i was leaving the already took a risk to see many of them when. not why being shot. pakistanis have been voicing their anger against donald trump that story and more the custom to come.
8:13 pm
good coin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula for trying to think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be crashing into you trust the good doctor is professional you trust the hospital is working in a trust third parties all day long but the point is the first international currency doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying into the protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse i like about it i mean wealth comes and goes and watching central banks crawl into their p. themselves and cry that's why.
8:14 pm
people in pakistan have been denouncing donald trump after he accused the country of helping terrorists crowds took to the streets of karachi on sunday chanting death to america and trying to make their way to the u.s. consulate islamabad rejected trump's allegation saying no country in the world has suffered more than pakistan from the scourge of terrorism the statement went on to describe washington stunts is disappointing as it ignores the enormous sacrifices made by the pakistani nation. the u.s. president's rebuke of pakistan came as he announced his new strategy for afghanistan and i'm all to complete reversal of his pre-election promise we will also expand authority for american armed forces to target the terrorist and criminal networks afghanistan is a total and complete disaster let's get with it get out of afghanistan although his administration hinted at
8:15 pm
a boost in troop numbers in afghanistan trump chose to keep the exact figure a secret and he called on nato allies to make a greater contribution in afghanistan the president's new plan though provides no time frame for withdrawal wheels people are afghanistan what they think about the u.s. military presence. you could on american and afghan forces carry out operations at night sometimes their intelligence reports are inaccurate civilians including women and children get killed. there was a doctor is a horse sulu is hit by a drone strike and another man was on his way home when he was killed. during a u.s. operation into the house and. they shot him dead later they said they had killed the taliban before they left they blew up the entire building we spoke to former u.s. presidential candidate ron paul he told us the american military presence in afghanistan is likely to continue for many years to come. he
8:16 pm
changes the words and makes it sound like the world will come apart if we don't continue to be the world's policeman he says he's not into nation building but there was a pretense anyway how many nations that we can really build or improve we've torn nations apart so he is seen as a flip flopper which i think politically is a bad position to be. going to be perpetual war nobody knows exactly who the enemy is and nobody will know when it is ended but i think trump has been maybe a little bit more upfront that his goal isn't to get done in six months or a year it looks like he's planning to be there for the long term. the syrian army but by russian act of a has destroyed one of the most active islamic state units in syria eight hundred militants were killed in the operation in the euphrates fanny a large number of heavy machine guns were destroyed along with tanks not hillary
8:17 pm
according to the russian defense ministry it's all part of the wide to push to break the blockade of the key city of dare is the battle took place and in this village it's about ninety kilometers from there is or one of the terrorists' last stronghold in the country the syrian army is a bouncing a multiple from the fifty three a long speech that middle east correspondent paula has the latest. it is very significant basically the taking of the year as a whole would point to the strategic defeat of islamic state in syria it follows weeks of fighting between the syrian army that is being assisted by the russian air force and islamic state and in the past few weeks we have witnessed and number of breakthroughs that the syrian army is making against the terrorist organization. the over there. in the.
8:18 pm
arab. world. now there is or is a city that islamic states has completely surrounded it for the better part of three yos there's only a small part of the city that is in the hands of the syrian army and they're completely blockaded there's no way in there's no way out and that's the reality for also for residents of the city if you can just imagine that this is a city that is home to some one hundred thousand people and for the last three years this has been their reality they are going to go about their work there was. a lot of them feel no one would like to come out. first of course having to know
8:19 pm
what to. look for the journey the journey of any any i mean if islamic state was able to be defeated here it would be a major significant achievement by the syrian army because essentially islamic state finds his would be cut off from any kind of other military forces and also from major financial resources and sources for them and so it would see. the final chapter of islamic state in syria. half a million people attended a peace rally in barcelona was that the evening marchers held banners with the message i am not afraid in reference to the terrorist attack earlier this month that claimed sixteen lives the probe into the atrocity has been focusing on the small town of rafah where the terrorist cell was based peter all of a travelled there for r.t. . radicalizing force they were radicalized by a moroccan born police now believe the ripple was it the same sort of the plot.
8:20 pm
this small spanish town took away in the foothills of the pyrenees is hardly what you think of as a hotbed of islamic terrorism but it was here in the fall that the terrorist cell which attacked barcelona recruited were indoctrinated and radicalized eventually going on to carry out their deadly mission. was. but it was here that the terrorists that rammed his truck into crowds of people and boss alone lived. the twenty two year old moroccan was gunned down on monday following eight four day manhunt by authorities was the our.

8:22 pm
to have attended prayers led by our society who's been accused of being the real. behind this terrorist cell the authorities pointed the finger at him and now that's being reiterated by some of those accused of being part of the cell have appeared in court but who will. see what do we know about the. moroccan national we know that he had a criminal past in front back in twenty ten he was sent to prison here in spain for his part and a drug smuggling operation and it's in jail where he's understood to have become radicalized in fact he's believed to have spent time with those who plotted and power the madrid bombings we also know that back in twenty sixteen he spent time in belgium around the time of the bombings on the metro the airports in brussels. he is believed to have been killed it was announced by authorities that his d.n.a.
