a train topped with commuters were a homemade device partially detonated commuters described the scene as a stampede with people running for their lives to men were shouting run run so we all piled off the train and just ran for our lives we were literally running for our lives and i still for a second i'm about to die a bomb is about to go off if you are jumping over what old boy like but the other choices and we all jump and go into this these jumping into over people. that you understand another terror attack has slipped by the authorities but the location this time has left many shocked and questioning where they go from here to the leafy cross and scream if you don't think so i haven't yet but that's the show so it's not sure it's. flying anybody. can do anything like that we're not taking the subway like let's walk it's kind of scary as authorities investigate this leader incident to see what should and could have been done the attackers seem to
be one step ahead creating a new one nerving an unpredictable norm and party london. and security council condemned the latest north korean missile test an emergency closed door session it called on all members to fully implement previously imposed sanctions but social was called after the latest missile launch by pyongyang on friday now photos of it have been released by the country's media although no new approach to the crisis was agreed upon russia's ambassador to the un security council said that we are seeing a vicious circle of aggression. we were discussing for a while that we're really in a vicious circle where. it is illusion a provocation pro occasion it is a delusion that another provocation. and we were going to play things many people raised an issue that we have to think maybe out of the books.
the north korean threat has not left us it is rapidly growing more dangerous. those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen. but a more heartening news this weekend the story two russian children who police have been orphaned in iraq after the parents were killed fighting for islamic state of being reunited with their families and our t. campaign called bring them home helped authorities to trace the children's relations the guy's name sadly and had deeds here they were initially taken to a baghdad orphanage after they were rescued from territory that was previously held
by iceland the city of mosul both had physical injuries but there was more than the physical injuries there were also too traumatized to talk about their experiences now less is thought i'd lost his mother and brothers in the fighting has had a huge effect on the. first hours they spent with their families back home in some safety at least in russia i. think. it was. their only. little. look out. now is the moment the doctor say he's all right we need some psychological treatments he won't get but. it was painful i first found joy we knew that we found him just as we saw him there are no worse to describe it it was hard thank god that we found him and you brought him back to us.
so two more youngsters finally home after their relatives so of play but of course many more still stuck in iraq in awful circumstances if you know any of the children you see only on the screen behind me though you recognize many way shape or form please do contact us. those are the only one. of the little.
u.s. president omar trump was given a hard time by critics even before his presidency began of course but now it seems many of his supporters a turning away from him because of his failure to deliver on key policies including building his border war with mexico all thursday though trump did tweet that it is big built on the existing fences of being renovated but it's not enough for some most american reporters make america great again the slogan many trump supporters chose to stand behind wearing his signature maggot hats with pride. and now they're burning them were hurting america great again we love truck we love truck. violence several campaign promises leaves me no choice.
so why are they angry well in their eyes trump has softened his top stance on immigration one of his key campaign promises he's now negotiating a deal with democrats to protect young undocumented migrants and there's no guarantee for he's actually going to build his infamous border wall with mexico we're building the wall we're building the wall folks we're building we're going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for the walls were never where we'll see our work . we're going to get the border security is part of that kind of begin to wonder what. trumps bipartisan outreach seems to be the final straw for its most ardent supporters in return for this concession the president received nothing no end to chain migration the president isn't even getting a border wall though he insisted still somehow get one later possibly if when it gets in the wall i'd prefer a president. at this point who doesn't want to jump in beached critics are viewing
trumps of. it's to charm democrats as a transformation to a normal president. but this transformation might come across as confusing to both his supporters and his opponents donald trump supporters and i don't speak for all of them but they expected donald trump to actually accomplish significant pieces of legislation and now here we are in the middle of september and there's not a lot of concrete to show for donald trump's time in office he hasn't managed to get a lot of people confirmed in key positions so i think we have to view donald trump as a young presidency as a presidency where the people who elected him elected a disruptor people are growing frustrated among his supporters and obviously they're saving anger and resentment among his opponents i think it's high time to actually see our concrete bills that address the core structural problems inside our country which households address humans address for some reason our washington
d.c. crowd doesn't want to address that's what we want to see people are becoming impatient there's a lot of talk where's the action where are the results so the question is who will trump choose to please his base which carried him to the oval office or his critics . well one thing is for sure he certainly can appeal to both. america on our t. washington d.c. thanks be with us this morning after the break french police holding rallies across the country and they protest over their working conditions and tell you all about it. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around corporation perforations washington washington post media the media. voters elected to run this country business
french police will be holding protests in cities across the country today over the working conditions the calling on people to join them in support offices said that frustrated with the increasing number of violent protests that they have to cope with. the truth. and one of the stray sion is just how unhappy french police officers are with the jobs right now four hundred twenty riot control officers reportedly failed to turn up to a label of protest on choose day one police union official told r.t. the numbers actually higher around thirty next looks at the planned police demonstrations coming up. french police say the government isn't doing enough to
protect them on the front line with the country in a permanent state of emergency and unions are complaining that office is a force to work in insufficient i'm delighted dated conditions. french citizens have a misleading image of what's actually going on with law and order all the police here whether it's on the street or the investigators they're working flat out they're doing everything they can but they don't have the resources to do everything that they can the national police are working and deplorable conditions offices have even tried to use some humor to george tension to their concerns these images of vermin and rundown police stations were submitted for a police union photo competition asking for proof of poor working conditions adding to the pressure is the increasing number of terror incidents with security services failing to prevent seven attacks within the past eight months alone and the police
themselves are often becoming targets french police officers a fallen victim to increasing violence over the past year back in april it was here on the show say that a jihadist gunman shot dead a police officer and injured two others and in october twenty sixth outside of paris youths told petrol bombs at four police offices one nearly died of his injuries. that incident sparked protests from police unions demanding that the french government do more to protect them and protests are under way again across from the new delhi the protesting simply because the resources there is a rock bottom each subsequent government promises things that the never deliver the police have had enough and that's why they're protesting with emanuel not quantised president police unions in the country are even more concerned my. promised to cut
public spending and tackle france's public debt but french police say the country simply can't afford to cut corners when it comes to france's frontline security. i would universities retracted an invitation previously sent to the u.s. military whistleblower chelsea manning to become one of its visiting fellows it said that designating her as a visiting fellow was a mistake now that announcement comes after the university was criticized by the cia director. he says harvard's offer legitimizes manning's quote treasonous actions remind the chelsea really was behind the release of hundreds of thousands of classified u.s. government documents she was charged with espionage after handing them to wiki leaks back in twenty ten and she was sentenced to thirty five years in prison that was commuted however in the last days of barack obama's presidency and she was eventually released back in may of this year.
there are traitors in america that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo whoever leaked all those state department documents to the wiki leaks website is a traitor and should be executed or put in prison for life i think with manning did was appalling i think he betrayed his fellow members of the military he betrayed the foreign service. and he should be going to prison and he will be.
so was the part of history after invitation the now to become a visiting father was a truck to the whistleblower took to twitter calling america a police state with the cia did was being taught in educational facilities he wrote we spoke to former british and us intelligence officers about the controversy they told us the situation shameful for both are good the cia i think that was a mistake in itself you know they didn't get their ducks in a row academic institutions are supposed to be independent there's this be academically rigorous and they're supposed to want to investigate the truth however inconvenient it is and harvard is one of the best in the world allegedly so you think it would have the guts to stand up for their principles of truth telling proper investigation proper research and this is something i think someone with chelsea manning's background could have contributed to so much and the fact that
they put out the invitation and then rescinded it in a few days because of political pressure you think they would have sources tell us ahead of time and i'm sure that the leadership in harvard probably did sound out the authorities and were told it was ok and if someone who threw a hissy fit in the back rooms of some intelligence agency somewhere who's feeling particularly spiteful vindictive towards a whistleblower this is a regime for situation. well harvard and other educational institutions depend very heavily on government funds and are heavily influenced by what we call the deep state chelsea manning has the same rights as pompei o. does it's an outrage that pompei o should say to harvard cancel that fellowship harvard has has an endowment in the billions of dollars but i guess they feel they still need all that government money that comes in other ways to support this or that institute none of them studying torture techniques or any of the abuses that
pompei oh it's favoring here. the i phone x. which apple unveiled at a big press event old shoes day has a wide range of next level features of course one of the most significant is face i.d. it allows users to unlock their devices through facial recognition very clever simply by looking at it but many customers are concerned about how this new feature could be used. this work with a photo of the face no no it will not it requires an actual face see need to hold it to remember that movie face off with john travolta nicholas cage yes yes thank you what is the maximum number of faces the phone can recognize since just just one just your own i have six.
hundred twenty troubles i check it out see dot com for more news thanks watching for the latest live update for me kev and i went out to h.q. moscow this morning with more in thirty minutes time. i would need to make this manufacture consent instead of public wealth. when the ruling classes and project themselves. in the primary your realm lifts only the woman has a job. we can all middle of the room sick. to lose millions more you leave this world in the world.
about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there were no other takers. claimed that
was. a. guy. who did. this past weekend you probably saw the film of the wall the wall hurricane irma reporting it was mostly a name vapid coverage like this you know when you can alter it and you can surround yourself with couch cushions you know if you can spot and brick structure while living back on the story of the big bad wolf the people who live in the straw and the stick houses are usually but of course the people who live in stone structures like this letter put the literally jumping the american populace down the nursery rhyme i'm. serious.
