north korea it would be devastating to take it to you to. have a staging. moochers the way we are standing in your model as an incredible team around him that's helping them believe that effort it has never moved the u.s. to care about what other countries say north korea will be destroyed and we all know that many of you had tremendous accomplishments on the international stage iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transaction the united states has ever entered and we're going to continue doing that we're going to continue doing that as a team with the president leading that effort these problems will be so i'm a problem solver. the majority of those statements you just heard concerned north korea most recently on saturday donald trump claimed to on twitter that previous american presidents have not achieved anything by trying to

7:10 pm
a surgical strike will be opposed by south korea as well as strongly by china and russia and we also know for sure that diplomatic condemnation and economic sanctions are not going to push north korea to give up its nuclear weapons program . almost a year on from donald trump's shock victory in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election and russia is still making the headlines over its alleged interference with little by way of evidence provided with the leaks editor joining us on just tweeted a market guide to western journalism francis takes his own very personal look. here is only to know to become a top mainstream western journalist these days giuliana sun she has just put together the perfect guide for all you want to be media pros first randomly pick and newsworthy event make sure it's one the russians will definitely cover now all

7:12 pm
with russia moscow somehow got the blame for the catalans will to seed from spain simply because well russia that's right reported on it and now we're getting to the most important part of the guide the motive which according to songe is of course profit them on c.n.n. constantly like russia the structure of. this rating. when you see the news tomorrow and there is something fishy about russia just remember you already know the formula for that headline axis and ya go r.t. . your analyst lionel thinks that meddling claims are so frequently made against russia most people now automatically accept them as fact when ever you say the russians weighed in on something the russians have bought ads the russians did something by that inclusion of the word russians you create

this nefarious connection russo phobic red scare kremlin baiting suggestion and it has been done with such frequency and such volume that people americans in the news people in particular themselves have how big you waited to this they've condition where they don't even ask any questions they don't know b. and they have to like they just listen to this the russians did it again did what i don't know so joy you know sancia is absolutely. correct. the russian military says its latest round of air strikes in syria has killed a number of ourselves field commanders some originating from the north caucasus region of southern russia i just got to have comments. one hundred twenty fight is killed just by the russian air force and just over the last twenty four hours the russian ministry of defense says that
7:14 pm
a good amount of those fighters were foreigners from the central asian republics from various arab countries and countries of the former soviet union and that would be highly characteristic of isis quoting to many reports foreign as out number locals syrians within the ranks of isis but many of those casualties were suffered by isis in the vicinity of. this city forty five kilometers south of that as sort of where we are now was the largest city still held by isis in syria now it is perhaps the hottest battleground in syria was through this fighting lasting throughout the night and continuing now but the syrians are allegedly in possession of over half of the city more than fifty percent the northern and western side isis is rushing reinforcements to dean obesity the don't expect an offensive of these ferocity but eighty people a.t.g. hardass were allegedly caught in
7:15 pm
a slew of russian air strikes as well as eighteen technicals pickup trucks with mounted high caliber weapons nevertheless the fight there continues and isis is still rushing reinforcements. to prevent it symbolic fool hundreds of people have gathered in kabul afghanistan to protest against the continued presence of u.s. troops in the country sixteen years on from its invasion story and more still to come here what are the international. i have. to be. you. have a common interest. and this is why. business community. entertainment and sports. you know.

to society's rules or. europe has to either change or cease to exist so people who work in this building a new headquarters should change the rules of the european union would have to work on fewer issues both with better results it should be paying more attention to protecting external borders fighting against curbing illegal immigration as well as harmonizing economic policies on the judicial system otherwise the europe we have today is doing it were transformed into a strange loose community of twenty seven countries with nothing in common. international now saturday marks sixteen years since the us invasion of afghanistan
7:17 pm
in two thousand and one then president george w. bush accused the afghan government of sheltering the al qaeda leaders who masterminded the nine eleven attacks that saw the beginning of the so-called war on terror now america's longest running conflict now ahead of the anniversary hundreds of people protested in the afghan capital kabul against the continued presence of u.s. troops in the country demonstrators carried anti u.s. and nato signs denouncing what they see as america's occupation of afghanistan it comes as new figures released by the united nations reveal an increase in casualties in the country over the last twelve months. it uses any for me i was praying in my house and when i saw american helicopters i told my wife and children to save themselves after that i just heard a loud noise and then my house was destroyed six people were wounded including
7:18 pm
women and children. they destroyed our house and our family member's wife the americans are killing our women and children every day in afghanistan and they just say sorry it was a mistake. was sitting in a room together and suddenly we had the massive bombardment of village and i was injured. last night on the explosion happened i was near to my uncle and cousins american soldiers opened fire and a bullet flew about my face i ran in here and came out on the hours later my uncle and cousins were dead so i went to the village to tell everyone and fears of even greater civilian casualties are emerging as the u.s. military has decided to relax its rules of engagement in afghanistan and he says american comments. president trump announced a new strategy to the u.s. this sixteen year long war over
7:19 pm
a month ago which is just outlined by the pentagon chief earlier this week the old rules included. both rules of being under rules of engagement and operating principles included a requirement for proximity of the enemy to be engaged by our air forces so i've removed proximity and bad in itself open to the enemy were ever they are found to the nato air support so u.s. forces will now be fully engaged in afghanistan giving authorization to launch direct off kinds of measures against the taliban previously having only defensive permissions general mattis also announced that the u.s. now fancy place in military advisors in almost every afghan unit we have got to reorganize or our advisors because those units with nato and american advisors when and those without them often do not win so we're going to spread the number of units with advisors but how much of
7:20 pm
a shift will this really be on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan commander in chief i have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional thirty thousand u.s. troops to afghanistan starting next month we will be able to remove ten thousand of our troops from afghanistan by the end of this year is it going to require additional u.s. troops who believe it will involve additional forces so far it seems like every u.s. strategy in afghanistan has failed now the taliban still controls or contests forty percent of the country and it's unclear if these new policies will make any difference at all clear they're not learning anything from the past but i would argue that the system that we are using to. make foreign policy national security policy is not geared to learning from the past of course as everyone knows the
7:21 pm
united states was unable to achieve the goal that it set for itself which was to. basically put the taliban movement on the defensive and prevent them from being able to continue their advance now we're seeing united states paranoia trying to do something along the same line with far fewer troops obviously on the face of it it's an absurd idea one cannot fathom how they could imagine that they could be successful in this. eleven people were injured after a car mounted the pavement and plowed into pedestrians in central london on saturday incident happened near the natural history museum one of the u.k.'s biggest tourist attractions and is metropolitan police say it was a traffic accident and not terror related driver has been detained and is now in custody terrorism expert and consultant david lao joined us to discuss the situation he says despite saturday's crash in a false alarm the u.k.
7:22 pm
should be prepared to remain at a heightened security level for the foreseeable future the u.k. has been on severe which is the next highest level been the full three years and i suppose really it's a sad state of affairs but we're having to get used to this you know it's sort of being prepared for tox obviously today's you know that like a motor vehicle accident but it makes sense if you like to start a high level and to treat it like a terrorist incident does make sense to do that it's easier than scaling down rather than having to scale and investigation of puts and i think these this is chris is quite important i think also looking at security of crowded places i mean for example with say the manchester itzhak you know how far do you help us security code because don't forget. that the bomber came from outside in. awards the entrance towards the end of the. opposition are held

marches across russia on saturday they were called by a kremlin critic and blogger alexina vali joined ortiz you know neal in the studio earlier with the details. around eight hundred cities across the country scheduled to be holding these rallies today most from a call it a birthday gift to the russian president is to say that to me a person celebrates his sixty fifth birthday and perhaps in a plot to spoil the day position figure alexina valmy has called for these nationwide protests now here in moscow resorts one out of around seven hundred people and a small number of people were detained that's now over those people have been released now what i should point out is that not all of these rallies have been authorized by the or otherwise ation is something you need when you bring together a large number of people for safety concerns traffic regulations and things like this so while police have been present at these rallies that launched you've been there to ensure that everything remains peaceful so yes so far no violence in the
7:24 pm
one of the biggest turnouts was up north there wasn't in some petersburg but it's one of the biggest turnouts was in st petersburg up to a thousand people reported to have been at that rally now that's officially over although still quite a lot of people on the streets sausan petersburg now as a result police say dozens have been detained for violating traffic regulations after we saw some confrontations protesters attempted to block police access also police who were forced to issue warnings off to a number of protesters use force to break police blockades now what's interesting about this rally isn't petersburg is that the is that electing a volley actually told his followers on social media that this was an authorized event however city was doris's say that they did not grant permission for this to take place so maybe some people have turned up to this this rally thinking it's legal when perhaps it's illegal. so in paul's cathedral in london has
