where the little sisters had vision for thema bases and other thing of the past here is then your home and their family has agreed to share their first day together with us the girls found the perfect remedy in their grandfather plenty of sweets and friends to play with this is had the usual and she's clearly the leads of the pack it seems to gruelling experience of football's own has made her even stronger for team zero six comfort in the arms of her granddad who seems just too afraid to part with her again even for a moment it looks like the perfect family image a house filled with children's laughter cries plenty of noise and fussing about it takes a while to realise what's missing and. she saw everything but she says her parents are alive why would i tell her otherwise. and yet even with all the love and care the has to offer his granddaughters there
10:04 pm
are still many rooms left on here. today and as it was the day three days without food or water in a dusty dirty basement she told me when there were bombs they would go to basement and when she sees a helicopter now she's terrified and they tell her not to be afraid you know what that i was opening an ice cream the other day and i have a habit of opening the wrapper popping it i did it once and she jumped as if she'd had an explosion. you. know. conflict is the creation of adults but it's often children who pay the heaviest price while hundreds even thousands of youngsters who remain trapped and lost in what appears to be the ruins of a self-proclaimed caliphate at the asia and that seem along with a few lucky ones who escaped well now hopefully learn how to be happy children
10:05 pm
among the other children returning to their families this week was nine year old marian she was injured and very fragile when taken in by the orphanage in baghdad another is alie his aunt was among the first to contact us he's only three years old just like sultan noor and he can see here his relatives say he's already we're just into every day life at home. now to berkeley california where rightwing pro trub have led to attend standoff the activists were bosky outnumbered by a so called rally against hate. crimes we tried to have you go oh ok. i carry. i ninety four here house side of course the 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 a right wing rally that was called the for today for this afternoon and the slogan
10:06 pm
say no to marxism well these are both here that object down to a number of the people involved with that recorded right wing rally are considered to be white supremacy and fascism assembled 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 we've got other people here all with different marxist groups are talking about socialism and communism while we have a lot of people signed to say things like say no to hate the city of berkeley has actually rallied around the slogan for you and 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 arrests and two people were arrested for having mass to their faces as we can see that a lot of very hassle. but there were two people who were arrested for having masks over their faces and there was an additional individual who was a far right
10:07 pm
a star was arrested for getting into some kind of scuffle and his call to patients with one of the left wing protesters he has been arrested now there's a huge 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 the family 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 into a crowd protesters actually killed one person and nineteen other people were injured in the aftermath of that and donald trump are very famously condemn violence on both sides sparked 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. well for some analysis in this we
10:08 pm
can now cross live to involve a who's vice chair of the libertarian national committee look all been bogged berkely story has a long history of left wing activism do you think it was potentially a bit provocative to choose the city is a venue for a pro trump rally. i don't think that there's anything wrong with having a rally of any kind anywhere as long as it's nonviolent but a rally that's coming from a recent history of a culture of violence is is could be problematic i think a lot of the responses that we're seeing in terms of violence in terms of using mace in terms of using other tools is really showing that a lot of that self described an arc is are not actually anarchies they're just people engaging in violence there's an anarchist or people who oppose the government not people who just opposed people that they agree with that they disagree with and try to fight words with violence well look the original gathering was supposedly against marxism and yet crowd switch on to the nazis off our streets
10:09 pm
do you think this kind of language is making matters worse. i think that one of the really big things to realize here is that language is fine language is a part of the marketplace of ideas and sometimes your ideas are going to fail if your language is provocative people might reject it if your language is out of touch with what most voters believe in what most people believe which is what we're seeing from both the left and the right you're going to lose in the marketplace of ideas and that's fine what we believe is not fine as a libertarian is that is not fine that when your ideas fail to try to use violence to rescue them and that's what we're seeing here we're seeing two sides that have ideologies that people simply do not want that are both fighting over who has the worst ideology and the problem is that they're resorting to violence but we have that we have been seeing a lot of violence as you've been saying over the past couple of weeks with in the
10:10 pm
wake of charlottesville and the tragic events that unfolded and obviously lots of people calling for removal of confederate statues and the arguments that ensue from that well as you see all of this heading. right now we're going to see american politics go in one of two directions the direction that i hope it goes in is a deep projection of violence in politics and i mean that both in terms of violence within american politics and also an end to the vile the example of violence that the government is currently setting i believe that a lot of the normalize the ssion of violence that we're seeing is happening because even at the government level we're seeing situation with the government settled its disputes with violence that there's a dispute with the islamic world is settling with violence if there's a dispute with drugs and all that with violence and that example needs to change so one possibility will be a wholesale rejection of violence at the personal level and at the governmental level and that would be an incredible opportunity for american growth but the other
10:11 pm
ophrah stability about a hope does not happen is an increasing cycle of violence where violence is normalize or becomes more and more part of our politics and a violent politics is a rejection of everything american stands for one of the great things about america is that we're able to settle our dispute with out violence it is one of the things that has set america part since our founding and to see that going in this direction to me is it's heartbreaking i want to see it stop and so many libertarians and repugnant conservatives and liberty i literally are hoping to see it end and i really think that the vast majority of americans want to see an end to all of that violence all been for a vice chair of the libertarian national committee thanks for your insights. the wrong key military says it has retaken telephone one of the last islamic state strongholds in the country but the u.s. backed offensive has come at
10:12 pm
a heavy price still civilians. the operation began a week ago and i saw militants have dropped back from california but they still hold nearby territory who had gas dia reports from the recaptured town. we're at the airport of telephone mia five kilometers from the city itself where the operation to liberate telephone is underway this is actually serves as a sort of central base 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 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
10:13 pm
wherever you are there jubilation however is a stark odds with what the people of tal afar have gone through it because 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 i sew and when they refused they locked them up there was normal to 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 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 telephone more than thirty thousand have escaped from the city escaped from the fighting they had to brave walking through the you've been deserts which is all there is here for ten twenty hours to get to safety to find water to find food medicine medical
10:14 pm
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 dumas can. pleat 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 confirmed it but again without details and what about the four hundred families that escaped that escaped. did you fail to catch them or did you let them do for
10:15 pm
humanitarian reasons. we have a system we had of all the refugees to the iraqi government and they handled 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 and 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 the. operation but striking similarities with the recent campaign a name by mosul which left thousands dead the two cities well i saw strongholds besieged by u.s. bank to rocky forces thousands of civilians were trapped inside both tal afar and mosul under constant involvement many of those who tried to flee were killed in the crossfire and those who remained quickly ran out of basic supplies. the operations have been moving forward of course we see that there are a lot of others to be in that have been of course the people in. need similar
10:16 pm
consequences to what the. french on the left who want your furnace does to ease that people who are leaving be able. to leave many of them rather than nine while being shot. people in pakistan have been denouncing donald trump after he accused the country of harboring terrorists crowds took to the streets of karachi and sound a chanting death to america and tried to make their way to the u.s. consulate islam about earlier 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 stance as disappointing as it ignores the enormous sacrifices made by the pakistani nation and the u.s. president's rebuke of pakistan came as he announced his new strategy for afghanistan and then mount
10:17 pm
a 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 a boost in trip numbers in afghanistan trump chose to keep. a secret and he called on nato allies to make a greater contribution in afghanistan the president's new plan there provides no time frame for withdrawal we asked people in afghanistan what they think about the u.s. military presence. how did you go you couldn't american and afghan forces carry out operations at night sometimes their intelligence reports are inaccurate civilians including women and children get killed. and there was a doctor as a horse so who is hit by a drone strike and another man was on his way home when he was killed by a drone. a u.s.
10:18 pm
operation into the house and saw a school boy they shot him dead later they said they had killed the taliban fine 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 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
10:19 pm
a year and looks like he's planning to be there for the long term. the syrian army backed by russian air cover has destroyed one of the most active islamic state units in syria some eight hundred militants were killed in the operation and euphrates valley a large number of heavy machine guns were also destroyed along with tanks and artillery according to the russian defense ministry and it's all part of the wind to push to break isis blockade the key city of dare is or the battle took place near this village chips about ninety kilometers from there is still one of the terrorists' last strongholds in the country the syrian army's advancing all multiple fronts to lift a three year long siege that all middle east correspondent paula slee has the latest. it is very significant basically the taking of deer as all 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
10:20 pm
and in the past few weeks we have witnessed and number of breakthroughs that the syrian army is making against the terrorist organization. the earlier. now there is or is a city that islamic states has completely surrounded 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
10:21 pm
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 job or their boss. mark that we feel no one would like to come out. first of course come to know much of you know that 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 a 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 the peace rally in barcelona on saturday evening marchers
10:22 pm

10:23 pm
wasilla alone lived. the twenty two year old moroccan was gunned down on monday following eight four day manhunt by authorities. why the. local people here say they can't believe he lived within their community. they play football together on the beach nearby with other kids from the neighborhood they were brought up here. but. of course. they were behind what happened around here can believe it the seem to be very nice people who will. be probably be roaming around but it's just the how we have to salute a whole slew of things that the cell melted into whole society attending the local
10:24 pm
high school and being a fixture on local football fields so how did say seemingly quiet group of quiet teenage is on a quiet town and is part of a jihad to sell. the answers to that many are looking towards the mosque that they attended it's here that they're understood to have attended prayers led by our society who's been accused of being the. the master behind the 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 is. what do we know about the thirty year old 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 in 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
10:25 pm
carried out 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. was found at the site of a bomb making factory did exploded in at the moment the authorities are writing bad off is that his own potential weapons of death course him out in the end. as the investigation continues arrests continue to be made including that of the owner of an internet cafe that suspected members of the terrorist cell and no into a frequent it begs the question just how many of a small tranquil communities like this could potentially be harboring fatal
