have training prinz actions with north korea as well as any financial institutions that facilitate these transactions now donald trump has actually praised china for agreeing to facilitate this with the chinese central bank let's take a listen to what donald trump had to say about that a new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund north korea's efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to human kind the order in hand says the treasury department's thirty's to target any individual or entity that conduct significant trade in goods services or technology with north korea now donald trump has specifically talked about how the chinese central bank will be enforcing and preventing the entire chinese banking system from having any transactions with north korea now we have not yet heard confirmation of that from chinese officials now since the beginning of this crisis there has been
a proposal from both russia and china for deescalation from the boat from both sides china and russia have united and called for south korea to end its provocative military exercises and to end the bad missile system which which is considered provocative in a strike enabling in exchange for north korea ending its nuclear proliferation and ending its provocative missile tests now regardless of this proposal from russia and china the crisis has certainly escalated let's take a look at what's happened over the past several weeks. this is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country and a generation. these sanctions will cut deep. today's resolution builds on what were already the deepest cutting sanctions ever
leveled against north korea those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen. now in the past economic sanctions and isolation of north korea hasn't really led to peace it has really not deescalated the crisis at all so the world will watch now and see what happens next as we hear this announcement of a new sanctions imposed on north korea from the united states thanks to our correspondent kelly bring us up to date the live from new york. now the
news violence has erupted in paris where protesters have thrown flares and stones at the police the clashes occurred during the latest rally against president emanuel micron's controversial labor reforms. on the. company. looks like. it is not giving him enough time and i'll. be happy it's kind of situation to sit. up on. our knees please. pushing to see. any point listen to listen
the league's elite. on. the spot. i was very clear during my campaign about the reforms. i explained as reforms i presented as a reform during weeks and weeks and i was elected and as reforms i do believe in democracy and democracy is not in the street. and it's a vault. of retaliation if syrian government forces once again come under attack from the territories controlled by washington backed rebels it comes after russia's ministry of defense reported two such attacks during the ongoing operation by syrian forces to break islamic state seizure of the city of there is or if reports now from syria
. isis collapse in data sort of continues just over the last night the syrian military backed by russia has liberated sixteen square kilometers they've taken to villages the russians say that eighty five percent of dead his own city is now being liberated and the rest will be retaken within the week there's been tremendous progress in recent weeks they've taken over dozens and dozens of settlements villages towns thousands of kilometers square kilometers from isis on the ground are russian special forces and the syrian military however very close the s.d.f. syrian democratic forces u s backed forces and there has been some tension the russians say that. over the last week or so the s.d.f. shelled syrian government positions while they were engaged in fighting isis no
less than two times utilizing more. generally they say this cannot be allowed to happen they got in contact with their american colleagues via the hotline that the russians and the americans have established and they had said in strong words that if this happens again the russians will use all available means to make sure that the syrian personnel and the russian personnel on the ground is safe to suppress any fire coming their way from u.s. backed forces more than that the russians say that the syrian democratic forces being redeployed from the rack up to date is your rock of course the former capital of isis and well still holds twenty percent of the city that has lost it for many many months nevertheless before its completion of fighting us back five years of being redeployed from that today it is or provence which is a little bit suspicious because the russians also say that over the last week they
haven't detected a single clash between u.s. backed forces and isis in debt as well. as their own we had reaction to the latest developments from political analyst amount of what cost. it is in the interest of the of the united states to keep the syrian army out of the eastern side of the euphrates in order to prevent the syrian state from brea gaining the oil fields and apparently the syrian army offensive backed by russia and its. other allies reached arizona or prematurely for a us plan the situation is very fluid there but what is clear is that there is no confrontation apparent. as per the russian intelligence and drone footage and everything that is taking place in eastern ukraine so this is again raising suspicion that there is a bit of corporation going on which would literally force the russians and the syrians to consider the as dangerous as. the
online retail giant amazon is under fire now for potentially helping would be terrorist softer it was revealed that its website which displays other products that you might like to purchase suggested the various components needed for a homemade bomb has more. what do you do when a computer algorithm takes on a life of its own and that's the question facing online retail giant amazon after a channel four investigation revealed that its search function suggests the ingredients required to make a homemade bomb when used as search for one of its components so if i type in the particular chemical compound that can be used to make a crude homemade bomb i'm in gives me the search results but also there's this section just beneath the search result that's called frequently brought together in that the search engine generates the other ingredients required that would get you
well on the way to making that improvised explosive device yourself you scroll down even further that is another section called customers who bought this item also bought and then there's a whole host of supplies that we can show you hey but they include things like beaches for mixing chemicals in weighing scales and even rather roman asli ball bearings that could be put inside a homemade bomb in order to make a bigger impact. the source of impact that this crude bucket was meant to have the explosives planted on the train in paulson's green failed to detonate properly it caused burns and minor injuries to tens of train passengers the revelation that the ingredients to buy
items that could lead to mass casualties on just readily available but it being all to most likely suggested by amazon search function has raised concerns about how much internet giants are able to rein in the algorithms they themselves have created even as the true. you know the answer manufactures devices if they've got the capability is good enough though. there are still curious teenage bullies there are still some. you know infuse us eccentrics who decide they want to go and make a bomb and blow it up at the bottom of the garden and this particular issue makes it far far easier for those people to do stuff and of course if they're making bombs and it's going to be some sort of accident and a loss of life as well so much more has to be done is really quite irresponsible. not to be doing more notes of the more sedate research out this week has shown that
jadis material is viewed more in the u.k. than in any other european country and in twenty sixteen britain was amazon's biggest market or now with that emerging that algorithms like amazon's be helping terrorists to plan attacks the question is one of the tech giants able to do about it. was on has responded to the investigation saying that it only sells products that comply with british law adding that it will review its website to ensure products are presented appropriately ok i will be talking to law independence protests the much more after this break. what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. wanted.
to go right to be close it's like that before. people are. interested always in the water how. things should. interests european interests really deeply intertwined with each other i think. having the interests. of those of. one side has to work with the opposite. that's really exactly the world so. it isn't relevant to the.
welcome but. you know what tens of thousands of people have hit the streets in support of the region's upcoming independence referendum. catalonia has seen enough a day of massive street protests local journalists and he says it's good though britain says more on the public's reaction to the arrests of pro referendum figures . we are here at the supreme high court where people have gathered to protest against yes this arrest for this house removed from the time i got there. and see the score just from here is where the four there are tourists the call fully expect the spanish police arrested came from. the capital yeah but you didn't get us as you say this morning that the logistics of the referendum are in real danger after these arrests and also have to rethink their base and also up to nine million
leaflets. that were they can be in the uni post office. as you can see behind me people are just peacefully for this the people have just left for scum with their families to protest against what they think it's a mystery that when just too far from the spanish government and the spanish police there is a problem or that is something that we have to sold so dirty it's a way it's like bolting i'm counting how many people want something i'm from a southerner and i'm here to fight with my rights for my rights now it's time to make you story to change your story to show the world that we only want to vote if you do this in provence remark remember that this policy of the spanish police was the one doing the rest but they did it under the protection of the catalan government because we have the obligation to protect their partner from spain. the
spanish government is trying to stop the referendum from going ahead national paramilitary forces raided more than twenty council and government offices and they detained at least fourteen people the previous night so a protest is clashing with the police. was. there was. a it was the today of the arrest the search of spain's prime minister search catalans to abandon what he called an impossible bring our response abolition there are generally those in charge of the catalan government who are the protagonist in this challenge to our coexistence on else and to cease in their illegal activities they should abandon their objectives they now know that this referendum cannot be organize it was never legal all legitimate it is now no more than an impossible
dream or what is worse the excuse that some seem to have found to deepen the splits that they have provoked in cattle on society. it was meanwhile an eight hour standoff in barcelona between police and demonstrators ended with officers abandoning attempts to enter the office of the region's key pro independence party apparently without an official warrant since president branded recent moves by spanish authorities as quote coordinated aggression and accuse madrid of putting in place a state of emergency in the bridge. over to look at the one year i started. to catalan government has been subjected today to a coordinated aggression committed by the police forces directed by the spanish interior ministry the objective has been to stop the catalan society to express themselves freely and didn't peace on the first of october this aggression is
outside of the law it damages the state of law and all of the constitutional guarantees and also damages the european union bill on human rights in the last few days and particularly today the spanish state has suspended the self rule of catalonia and is put in place a state of emergency. which would seize the range of measures in its bid to stop the referendum from actually taking place that declared the upcoming vote illegal and conducted numerous raid this cease pro referendum materials currently more than seven hundred men as a under investigation over their support for the vote and most recently madrid's announced plans to take control of catalonia is budget that's in order to ensure that money isn't spent on the referendum well let's take a closer look at what spain words in danger of losing if catalonia became independent. first of all of the region makes up only six percent of spain's
territory with sixteen percent of the population living there it counts for one fifth of country of the country's entire tax revenue and a quarter of all its exports welsh assembly member adam price believes that the catalonian people have a fundamental right to independence the tectonic plates if you like a shifting everywhere as there is a. no we're coming desire amongst nations and peoples to actually be free to chart their own course what we're seeing this escalating use of force by the spanish debt against the right of the cartel on people to choose their own future you know it's the worst breach of democratic rights that there is a fundamental right of peoples everywhere to decide on their own future i mean it's in shrines as we know in the united nations charter the rights of missions that self-determination. hollywood star morgan freeman has targeted moscow in an unusual
video over its supposed meddling in the us presidential election the clip promotes the committee to investigate russia and the new group created by artists and politicians and it's just the latest initiative probing moscow's alleged attempts to interfere in u.s. politics is a nice and now with more. do you like morgan freeman i do everyone ties voice he's a great actor but you know what i don't like when celebrities warmonger and wage wars we have been attacked we are. poor we came under attack by the russian government no he's just acting i don't believe he's probably just promoting his next movie or something imagine this movie script a former k.g.b. spy angry at the collapse of his mother and plots of course for revenge secretly use a cyber warfare to attack democracies around the world and when. it's
just described and i thought this guy might pick corn crazy glad i'm here to stand by and this is no movie script. ok the voice of god imagine this movie script actors are pushing an agenda and promote war with zero evidence to back their claims because politicians have got hollywood in the back and this is just like a movie script every detail plotted and playing out perfectly scripted how do i know because the very next day after this beautiful performance by morgan freeman a hollywood director came on t.v. repeating the same entre they've attacked us they're trying to undermine our democracy our country is attacked democracy is on the brink too you know if we're going to survive we need to come together as americans and understand what

don't know why hollywood imbues certain people with this sons of expertise and everything they are actor they play roles they inhabit positions that they're not they're almost chameleon and all of a sudden and given the opportunity to do so they become experts. ok so a good liberal is expected to be speaking at the u.n. general assembly some tongue soon this evening if that happens in the next half hour we were planning to break our coverage and go to it to stick around for that if not about with the latest news headlines at the top of the hour.
