from. the. state department is now conducting a search of russia's trade mission in washington after ordering it to be closed to assure a slant of the move saying that it's a clear violation of international law. and we can sing an example you need to match the missions it's an illegal takeover of russian corporate. would have been expected says she's going to give us something we don't call come down. to the russian diplomatic sites are also to be sure the closed also on the orders of the state department further aggravating the ongoing diplomatic spat between washington and moscow. for the news the counterterrorism chief has revealed britain
has the highest number of islamist extremists in all of europe. and i. think you're not why. a member of the black yeah we'll black people right out of police lieutenant in the united states is being fired after this dash cam video shows him assuring a woman during a traffic stop the police only kill black people. good evening and welcome my name is neil harvey and you're watching our international. now searches of russia's former trade mission in washington d.c. have begun after the site was closed on the orders of the u.s. state department staff were blocked from accessing the building starting from two
pm local time the u.s. state department is in charge of the search the head of the russian trade mission alexander stubb nick told journalists that he considers the searches of the compounds to be a takeover in violation of international law. we are witnessing an example of the mandolin you need to mash the missions it's an illegal to be called russian ground we haven't been expecting so she wanted guests. to pm local time the us doesn't these we have to go magic community. or minutes before the closure our t's ruptly video agency managed to film inside the premises as you can see here pretty much everything had been cleared away looks like the job was done ahead of shared jewel just empty shells and carried doors and is anything of significance has been removed and it was all done in short time the staff there the diplomatic employees given around thirty six hours in which to accomplish that and get out.
with a deposit officials are also poised to search the russian consulate in san francisco and that includes the flats of the diplomats that are inside and earlier on saturday russia summoned the deputy chief of the u.s. diplomatic mission in moscow to express anger at what russia has described as an illegal raid and an act of aggression. ok let's bring in the guests now annie marshawn former m i five intelligence officer joins me on the line good evening to you arni ok you've got the state department saying that the trade mission has lost its immunity this century it was lifted when when that consulate was closed down vienna convention which governs consular relations says otherwise it says that immunity is retained unless diplomatic staff leave the country so differing views here who do you think has got this right. well i think international lays it down very clearly that the nine hundred sixty one vienna convention of diplomatic
relations says that any diplomatic affiliated premises in a foreign country. viable and any incursion on that territory is therefore seen as an attack on the country that is hosting that diplomatic mission so this is breaching all international law and i have to say that it seems very hypocritical because for example go back to the snowden disclosures of twenty three twenty thirty where it was disclosed that there were pics illegal spying a technical operations on the roof of for example the british embassy in berlin the american embassy in berlin can imagine the outcry for if the germans then said we don't want a country going to raid these embassies and see what's going on inside them i cannot imagine the international fallout as it happened so why is it ok for america to do this to another sovereign states property in its own country. it seems
a strange decision in the sense that you really i mean you really only have to do an internet search to find out that this apparently goes against the vienna convention on consular relations and yet the u.s. is going to head with this state department why do you think they're doing this. i don't know who i really don't know i can't fathom why they're trying to snow i mean obviously the tension has been ramping up so barack obama in his last days as a president at the end of last year. actually sent home thirty five diplomats from russia which sort of concerned in the public's mind globally that russia was involved in this bogus right you know election hacking thing. and it just escalated from there so more sanctions being placed against russia pinney if. russia has retaliated by expelling. american diplomats and their associates so it's just it's escalated to this point why now i do not know it seems that president
trump initially wanted to try and recalibrate their relations with russia to try and build a peaceful and profitable for both nations and he's been hitting. ever since his election. some sort of. american status. to make sure he can't do that so it's very stagnant you know right i've spoken to already two former ambassadors who told me that you know there's absolutely zero chance of a search finding anything incriminating in any way shape or fashion especially when you consider that they've been given although not be long thirty six hours in of time to sort of clean shop again while i conduct a search is this just for the for the pantomime for the theater of showing people going into you know a russian consulate in this seeming false. i think there's a sense to create it always in these sort of acts but also. concerning to me is
that there is a senate senate intelligence authorization act going through the corridors of power in america it was an outside the middle of august and this will actually effectively. attack intelligence agencies working in america and even non-state hostile intelligence agencies as they're calling wiki leaks for example now we all know that julian assange has had safe haven in the ecuadorian embassy in london since two thousand and twelve we also know that in two thousand and twelve the u.k. government was looking at the idea that they might try and raise the embassy against the international again to try and get him out and trying to fix it is so i'm wondering if this might be linked to the there is some sort of meaningless parade of power by raising these consulates in america russian concerts in america because they're going to push through this new law and then they can use it globally against anyone else they perceive to be an enemy and we know that julian
assange and wiki leaks is perceived to be an american enemy and they want him back that they they want to prosecute him under some secret. and so you might be linked who knows. this deadline of less than forty eight hours in which to vacate the premises where you know people are people not just working the living as well i mean it is very short notice isn't it by anybody's standards we saw but the russians give us a whole month to clear out again do you think this is like the trying to set a precedent to foreign nations no don't get too comfortable we could trust you to get out at any moment. absolutely and we have had a situation since the end of world war two where there's been a certain detente with diplomatic relations where people have assumed there are certain rules in play and it's been quite civilized and it appears now increasingly on all sorts of fronts not just diplomatic fronts but you know in step fronts corporate fronts whatever there's
a. america keeps trying to claim global dominion and i think they're trying to set this in this case the question is why and why now and i think it might be linked to this senate intelligence authorization act that's going through at the moment is not being much support is america ok will have to keep a close are not appreciate the heads up on my guess for my five intelligence officers. now in other news the united kingdom is home to more islamist extremists that are near the e.u. country that's according to the blocks counterterrorism coordinator who also warned that future terrorist attacks in europe are inevitable and the situation has been looking at why britain tops the list. was. both but i was was.
recurring terrorist attacks in europe and the u.k. have become an unnerving fixture for europe's major cities as it turns out britain is at the top of the leaderboard when it comes to the number of extremists here there is many as twenty five thousand fanatics in britain more than any country in europe that's according to the use anti-terrorist chief three thousand are considered a direct threat by m i five and five hundred under constant surveillance to compare france with six terrorist attacks in the last two years is said to have seventeen thousand radicals spain the most recent victim of a major terror attack in europe just over five thousand so why is britain europe sixty mr capital well if i could bring the supposing that in the highest number of jihadi some twenty five thousand does surprise me a bit because i would have expected france a proportion of belgium to. number given particular the alienation of the muslim communities in both those countries but i know hand i'm not surprised the new young
muslims of point you know an eighty from for society and that's growing of research the impact of what britain itself has done and we should remember britain has been next the united states the main program for satanists in various wars we have seen around the middle east the thirty five deaths caused by terrorist attacks in britain this year in westminster manchester and london bridge were carried out by perpetrators on the radar of the security services yet despite that awareness those terrorist attacks weren't avoided and more are expected to happen we are going to suffer more attacks the groups propaganda no longer calls so much for people. to travel to the caliph it but to launch attacks in their places of origin or of residence even on a small scale with homemade weapons across europe while some perpetrators were known to the authorities others appeared to be leading ordinary lives and were even described as good guys this raises the question of just how many so-called good guys are totally off the radar or are currently in the process of being radicalized
twenty five thousand people the security services can monitor that number of people every twenty four hours some of those attacks we've seen have been one wolf for tanks it's very difficult if an individual or even to sneeze small number of people planned something that was just simply wanted to get a hold of a vehicle get a hold of naives it's very difficult to pick that up so if the security services can't guarantee the safety of citizens who can the u.s. extended a european travel alert for americans this week making it clear that europe and britain are not the safest places to go and r.t. london. we spoke to the former head of britain's counterterrorism security office who thinks it's impossible to monitor such a large number of extremists. certainly you know with those carter numbers and where there are not going to be or not police officers to keep watch on them but certainly twenty to thirty thousand people of interest in the security services
that's one thing of course that boils down to probably about two to three thousand people who are really concerned and the police and security services are going to what it's no surprise that spain's been attacked they've got the same problems as everywhere else and of course there are suspects that are in unmarked society. that this is very difficult to police we're going to see a lot of terrorist attacks worldwide over the next twelve months and that's just the way it is and unless we can increase terence i wouldn't say us are pretty good intelligence and it's only sharing. all of us are going to suffer from terrorist attacks. that's come footage has emerged that shows a police lieutenant in the u.s. telling a woman during a traffic stop the police only kill black people and he made that remark after she said she was too scared to reach for a phone. you should own your lavandero i got it.
if you're not why. remember we are like yeah we only got black people right. to question was subsequently fired with his truly criticizing those actions although he did call him an honorable man whom he'd known for years. that no matter what context he tried to take those comments in the statements were inexcusable and inappropriate i'm no newton and for a number of years and i'm always perceived him to be an honorable man ve made a mistake. surveys conducted by media outlets show that last year the number of people in the united states killed by police came to more than a thousand or since the start of the year the figure is already above six hundred fifty of the different racial types the share of black people among those killed is
not in the majority actually according to the mapping police violence survey says the start of the if you wouldn't thirty percent of those people killed were black but in general black people all three times more likely to be killed by police in the united states than an average american plus back in two thousand and fifteen thirty percent of black people killed were unarmed but discuss the issue with ronald and retired d.c. metro police chief he told us that the fire lieutenant's remarks were racist. believe me it probably has come up in the twenty eight years that he's been on the police force cobb county georgia has been known to hobble racism as well as activities about the ku klux klan always right next to to camp kenya where lenin isn't and they have been issued before so this guy did what has happened to this guy and the mistake is that now and this was caught on a camera video not only a very old but we saw that and heard the sound too so now he can't get around the
fact that he used this race this term as well as it also to me is the indication of his behavior over the so i don't necessarily believe the person who said that they've known and mean he's an honorable person i don't believe that a joint syrian of russian operation destroys isaw vehicles will explain all after the break.
can be taken into the afterlife that's a lot of people from the future are now arriving in the present like he's able to pay for it very into the present using but klein he doesn't talk about it much because he's already considered to be quite a strange man but you know that's the truth. welcome back the russian foreign ministry has released new video of air strikes that have destroyed i saw vehicles need to resort in syria the strikes were conducted as part of a joint operation carried out by russian and syrian army is the ultimate goal to
liberate the city of dare resort for myself since the beginning of august the syrian army has made significant gains. there is always been completely surrounded by eisel for three years now just a tiny portion of the cities occupied by the syrian army and almost one hundred thousand people attracted by isis.
as you are that very the late in the navy as isis terrorists raided our house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i had her in a water tank so that the terrorist didn't take her as a slave it was not good at is not cut is the situation in there is or is catastrophic terrorist from iraq execute civilians in the streets and leave bodies lying there for up to five days by secretly drove my sons out of the city otherwise isis militants would recruit them by force inject psychotropic substances and later used in the suicide bombings.
geo political analyst patrick henningsen believes that the russian air force is being paid to the syrian army's recent gains. might be the most important choke point right now in the syrian conflict because of its geographical location regionally russia's been making incredible advances with airstrikes with the syrian armed forces on the ground isis being basically pinched on both sides of a sort of a greater regional area that they had more or less strategic control over. a year a year and a half ago eradication of isis but not just isis also. is absolutely going to stabilize the middle east as a whole syria can be seen as a stabilizing force an important player in the middle east. city council voted fourteen to one in favor of renaming the federal hall the date
was called columbus day but will now be known as indigenous peoples day. explains. the time of heated discussion over america's historical figures and their often controversial past los angeles has become the most recent city to vote overwhelmingly in favor of renaming columbus day to indigenous peoples day the opposition to honoring christopher columbus whose brill treatment of native americans is often overlooked coincides nicely with the recent fight against the symbols of the confederacy new. democratic economics energy poor african american and brown. that there is the christopher columbus statue that was vandalized someone took an axe to christopher columbus is that there is no red paint all over the statue removing columbus his name from the national holiday is meant to be a way to make amends and acknowledge america's bloody past but is the relabeling of a day really the best way to help america's indigenous people it's not going to affect people who do anything that's going to change their situation unfortunately
the better the freedom day might be a good thing. or a cloudy day we can get if we can get something for them in terms of a date that's perfect and then that way we can do like i said go ahead and start talking about the issues at hand and then we can work towards getting getting more and more from people should be other centers and care more about other people than they do that more people care about themselves these days than they do other people focus more so than just change the name incomes for native americans tend to be relatively low and unemployment high in two thousand and fifteen the poverty rates were the highest among any groups in america so perhaps efforts would be better spent on trying to improve the everyday trials and tribulations of the native americans instead and something important to note is that in l.a. many who were trying to keep columbus day as the holiday offered the idea of having a separate day and naming that indigenous people say but the idea was shot down leaving one wondering how much does renaming a day really and help the indigenous people of america and also why is this getting
a second wind now perhaps has something to do with the anti confederate term phenomenon. r t y. and in d.c. . just three weeks to go before germany heads to the polls the authorities are looking at potential threats to the democratic process and a surprise russia once again finds itself in the spotlight it's all of the story comfortably ahead in the polls but this election campaign hasn't been a walk in the park for a blue merkel eight years he says he. understands. the kids i'm sure i know i know. i'm glad merkel remains around fifteen points ahead in the polls but that hasn't stopped the security officials from looking for a bogeyman in this election we believe russia is capable of starting descent from asian campaigns in connection with the elections to the bundestag yes we heard
about the u.s. election we heard about the french election now it's germany's turn is claims are being made that russia is out to influence the vote but this isn't the first time that we've heard these type of comments from hans the old musson. dienst isn't about the american intelligence services are convinced that most likely russian intelligence services are behind the attack we have no evidence of course but it is obvious that a similar scenario was possible in germany to. and he's not the only one banging that particular drum but. we have seen the alleged influence in the us elections the french elections as well as clear evidence to suggest that these attacks came from russia. there's a crucial hole in claims that russia is attempting to influence the outcome of this year's election in fact we heard the head of germany's interior security service talk about it just a few seconds ago that is there's no evidence no evidence that hacks took place in
the past or that there's the intention to carry out hacks in the future in fact the german government has had to come out and. said i don't have any information that these kinds of food can be proved and i have no knowledge of them . germany has been the victim of high profile cyber attack in the past back in twenty fifteen the bundestag systems were the victim of a cyber attack and the finger of blame for that one remains pointed at russia russia was initially blamed for the telecom hack at the end of last year and that has nearly a million people offline across germany in fact though it was the work of a twenty nine year old british man who was doing it at the order of a liberian company in exchange for cash russian president vladimir putin was put on the spot about meddling in elections during the g twenty and amberg. we did not
interfere in the u.s. election so why would we create any problems here we have good relations with germany it's our largest trade and economic partner in europe i'm glad merkel looks almost nailed to be returned as the chancellor of germany but almost half of germans say they still don't know who they're going to vote for so the next couple of weeks could well prove to be crucial and being able to patrol yourself as the defend against foreign meddling could well be a vote grabber come september the twenty fourth piece for all of our. you're watching international news service a please stay with us this evening i'll be about the latest news headlines for you and.
