incident in the u.k. a twenty seventeen pandemic of terror with this now the fifth and every attack demands more security measures and public vigilance down. following the van attack on westminster bridge they put up concrete barriers to prevent a similar salt earlier this month london's metropolitan police came up with another measure to stop the vehicles targeting large crowds steel spikes road mats to be rolled out a big events but just days after the announcement london was hit by a different kind of attack the weapon this time was concealed in a simple plastic bag and bucket and left on the tube during rush hour cordoned off behind me is the area where the fifth terror related incident to shake the u.k. in recent months took place early friday morning in a train topped with commuters or a homemade device partially detonated commuters described the scene as a stampede with people running for their lives just what is lost in memory of the
8:03 am
baby in a crowd with a mob scene men were shouting grab and run so we all piled off the train and just ran for our lives we were literally running for our lives and i saw for a second i'm about to jump over what old boy like. the teachers asian with a beautiful job and going into this these children into over another terror attack has slipped by the authorities but the location this time has left many shocked and questioning where they go from here is following that anybody. can do anything they like that we're not taking this that way like let's take let's watch this kind of scary as authorities investigate this latest incident to see what should and could have been done the attackers seem to be one step ahead creating a new unnerving and unpredictable norm and a party london. where we know a year ago three. living with the threat of terrorism is something londoners just have to excess.
8:04 am
you won't succeed but you want to fight us we will become terrorists. you will see over the next few days i mean crease number. across. the attempts to. make countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together. and. they continue to be visible patrols around. which include the deployment of.
8:05 am
londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days no reason to be a long. rope. as we'll see an increased number of visible police. leaving london aside for now it's been another week of stunned off over north korea on monday the u.n. security council passed the resolution on new sanctions after pyongyang's nuclear test earlier this month although the harsh syringe in a draft prepared by the u.s. was renegotiated to seal the vote washington had wanted a full oil and natural gas embargo against north korea but the final resolution.
8:06 am
imposed only a cap on the country's exports the original draft also demanded a travel ban and then are set free against the north korean leader but that didn't make it into the final draft either the us president was not impressed by the compromise made to the un. we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing. not big i don't know but has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen well it's certainly disturbing to hear these words from donald trump in the aftermath of a vote at the u.n. security council that was widely perceived as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard from u.s. leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic and favorable to peace and cooperation at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harsh talking about the possibility of sanctions against
8:07 am
russia and against china if they don't comply with the new u.n. resolution if china doesn't follow these sanctions we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the u.s. and international dollar system and that's quite meaningful so now we have these words from trump downplaying the u.n. resolution and many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious well those hopes are starting to dampen now they're starting to be some some fear that perhaps once again we are in the danger of a global conflict or some kind of war breaking out in the crisis in the korean peninsula could be once again intensifying despite what was seen as a step forward for diplomacy and international cooperation this is just another dip on the roller coaster and saying this huge every week with the war where it goes up very high than that maybe this one conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force and it's really hard to know what
8:08 am
to make of this yes we do have a positive that is the original u.s. draft was watered down considerably it was acceptable to the russians or the chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from pyongyang we don't know what the next step is going to be could be that the real question is. going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows both sides to step down and in my mind that's got to be something like the double three s proposal that china has put forward the russians agree with but is absolutely unacceptable to washington it seems in response to washington's calls for a new sanctions north korea carried on a missile test on friday according to the south korean military the projectile reached an altitude of seven hundred seventy kilometers and traveled almost five times about this things before falling into the ocean just like the test carried out a few weeks ago the missile flew over to poland triggering an alert on the hope kaito
8:09 am
island however not everyone in japan felt threatened by the launch. but to be frank i don't feel like japan is their target as their target is the u.s. that's why these are just pressing goals with japan and i don't think north korea will drop directly on us and say. it's a missile destroyer of strength good because we won't have to go to school. we were . taking it seriously meanwhile korea react to different ways missile test with a military drills near the border with the north on the low the south korean president threaten pealing young with quote destruction beyond recovery over the provocations he rules stationing nuclear weapons former u.s. congressman ron paul told us washington should let the korean leaders result of the crisis themselves. why couldn't we encourage and get behind
8:10 am
saying look south korea we encourage you to talk to north korea and see if you're going to sit down maybe united states and china could both be observers or something and they get it moved on but not for us to constantly stir up trouble by having our military confrontation about building up and having these war games what are these war games where are they practicing you know is so unnecessary and and confrontational and it doesn't mean that if we didn't have war games that we would give up something on our defense our side has to worry about the bush doctrine which tried just to you know make it our official policy that you need to have preventive war well preemptive preventive war is aggression and that i don't lie. deep anger around the french presidency labor reform plans which are gee this month was clear on choose they with nationwide strikes on hundreds of rallies protests in paris turned violent with projectiles and flourish being thrown.
8:11 am

8:12 am
law that he wants to implement he wants to shake up the job market and make it easier to hire and by now he thinks that. this is ultimately unemployment rate here in front. of the rates in the u.k. and germany all the was we can see you say that they believe that this was the likes of the employers in france i know the employee. said this lowers anti social because it's reliable for workers. but it was a way of this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work doesn't give privileges in both the public in the private sector as we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement should proceed with the draft or thanks eighteen million workers the majority of french workers will significantly limit their rights to make it easier to find people even when it's not justified by new monk
8:13 am
was. made a bit of a last week when he referred to all the people that it was a low. free man. but not in the way that it galvanized a lot of the protesters here in manhattan that want to buy. people to hit the street the fact is that we have a showdown between the pro-business president who's come to power to shake on the job market and the trade union movement. as the last of which he would say. that the plan for this. was through my mother and then over the next week. well it's just a few months into mccollum's presidency but his approval ratings are on the slide and on the outs on likely to be helped by his recent description of the protesters there are also reports that four hundred twenty riot control officers failed to
8:14 am
turn up to police the protests after officers were bombed from marching themselves although one police union official told r t that the number was actually higher to run to thousand they've got their own issues with the government protesting on sunday with their family's sake and for working conditions they say chronic under-investment will lead to greater risks taken by officers of a time when the country's on high turds. i will be absolutely determined to that i will not yield in any way not to slack because you are not cynics not to extremists.
8:15 am
we gathered here today to protest against macron and his policies which undermine the very existence of the workers from whole sphere is this movement is necessary it is the response of the french people who are protecting their rights. more news in ninety seconds stay with us. that's. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected
8:16 am
. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go right to be press it's like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the water how. should. the international community continues lee emphasize about one theoretical united iraq this is a slogan maybe an approach to the politicians but in reality on the ground iraqis are. united and he has courage to be blamed school what is happening in the rest of iraq i mean the direct wrong direction is that iraq has gone through.
8:17 am
hello again the syrian army house reached the euphrates river after retaking two more districts in the so i think east of the city of terrorist or from eisel earlier this week the russian navy supporting the syrian military hits a number of targets close to the city. this is defense ministry saying he's not done communications posts as well as a mission devils were destroyed seven cruise missiles were launched on thursday from two submarines stationed in the med after injuring three years of terror starvation and ongoing fighting interests or locals are nonetheless trying to bring some normality to their lives.

8:19 am
be true of. many many she. rushes defense ministry has responded to i.q. stations from the pentagon claiming that the russian air force injured u.s. led coalition partner forces east of terrorists or they're responding to the accusation russian military said it. force conducts precision strikes only and i saw positions confirmed by her full intelligence the defense ministry went on to say about considering their intelligence didn't give any information on clashes between iceland u.s. backed forces in the area the question of how they got hit by russian air strikes remains open. meanwhile the latest round of syria peace talks and seen a breakthrough agreement on deescalation zones which could finally provide some peace in the war ravaged country. the garden tours all of the peace settlement
8:20 am
russia. turkey have signed a document marking the boundaries of the final deescalation zone in a province in northwest syria that's on top of the already implemented zones elsewhere in the country and while there is still much to be done to unite all the country's forces in the struggle against terrorism russia's special envoy for syria is cautiously optimistic. we consider the establishment of the deescalation zones to be a major milestone it has served as the lights at the end of the tunnel for the syrian people and made them feel more secure it gives hope for progress in the near future. so the islamic militants have been recruiting foreign fighters in syria and iraq for the past number of years many who went there to fight brought their families along with them but with the terror group suffering a string of major defeats the wives and children of a large number of killed fighters have ended up in refugee camps with certain
8:21 am
futures r.t. was the first to talk to some of the widows of foreign extremists in iraq where hundreds of families are stranded location and identities will not be disclosed for their sake. yes such a dumb was it is no. way. and the. people at the beginning. of the. company. the students that's something please any of the done these things you know how to make you think of them in other words no no. no that's illegal status of the winds of funders is not yet clear meanwhile in europe last year around six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty of them
8:22 am
prosecuted for ties to jihadism though we talked to a couple of political commentators about whether the wives all of the ice should also be treated as extremists. well i think the most important thing we have to do is avoid these people coming back to our countries these people have joined a terrorist organization they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't russia what we're talking about wives and children of isis fighters who have gone out to syria to iraq to kurdistan and have been found themselves inadvertently getting in broiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been in power these atrocities let's be clear what the argument that no one saw is making is that you are an adult war have chosen to join a terrorist organization just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever i want mr savage but you are in
8:23 am
a terrorist organization so i want to not have you make your own please let me say they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look at you actually look a little like your name for yourself as a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out and keep talking the position of the majority of british people in my view is that they do not want terrorists back in the united kingdom they do not want the wives of terrorists back in the united kingdom but there may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i put my ear piece back in these women many of them will be innocent people the children are innocent people they didn't sign up to a terrorist organization it's not like joining a club where you sign up to get a membership form they followed their husbands into a war zone people who have not committed any wrongdoing who are no risk to the state the answer is to integrate them we have the national security apparatus in place to be able to tackle these issues right now. it's been almost two

years since hillary clinton shock election defeat to donald trump she's on the road promoting her new book which pinpoints who she thinks is to blame you should remind her of who she's been accusing along the way. says that word work in two thousand and sixteen russian wiki leaks are perhaps i inherited nothing from the democratic party bernie's not a democrat jim column these latter my primary opponent and a lot of his supporters sexism and the massaging the resentment the stereotype. a lot of people didn't want to hear my plans. well the book's called what happened in which clinton throws ickes ations out those she believes treated her on furley during the campaign she recalls a debate with donald trump which she said made her skin crawl he invaded her personal space she also brings up the bottle with fellow democrat bernie sanders claiming his plan was to disrupt the party on clinton believes vladimir putin's
8:25 am
efforts to install trump as a friendly puppet to influence the election failed well clinton's that literally references are buffing some readers to she mentions george orwell's dystopian political novel nineteen eighty-four with its theme of distrust of politicians and the media for clinton though it's those very people who should be relied on leaving some readers to call her delusional elsewhere in the book she compares herself to a character from the hit t.v. show game of thrones and this is being some of the reaction. they shouted guilty guilty like they really just salads and game of thrones chanting shame shame well so see lannister i walked back there and keep.
8:26 am
the state police in the mind. a place to stay no matter. what that. having said all this why aren't i the points ahead i. did you make enough mistakes yourselves to lose the election without any of the other things you talk about what i will say no matter. you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorable . everyone who isn't us. isn't it basically you're saying that there's there's
