p g fighters who are currently battling islamic state in syria turkey's foreign minister ses donald trump made the pledge in a phone call to his country's leader or to long. clearly stated that he had given clear instructions not to provide you with arms and that this nonsense should have ended long ago. but the white house was less forthcoming about the conversation it confirm the call took place but didn't mention the kurds it simply said trump informed to one upcoming adjustments to the military support being provided to america's partners on the ground in syria however whether those adjustments will affect washington support for the kurds was not made explicit the us has been sending various types of weapons to kurdish forces on supporting their military operations with strikes but it's been

a major sticking point between the u.s. and turkey which considers some kurdish forces to be terrorists journalist kurdish affairs analyst he wildman believes we're seeing a repeat of what happened in iraq. coalition that the united states has put together the purpose of it was just to end i saw and the kurds proved to be a very good fighting force in this they have finished with them then now the compact are for to go there they this is this has been the situation in iraq three percent it was exactly the same there kurds were an effective force on the ground in the fight against i so when i saw disappeared they were dropped like hot potatoes the same situation in the air in this city in kurdistan will be repeated i believe. egypt is hunting for the militants behind what officials say was the country's deadliest ever terror attack at least three hundred five

people including twenty seven children were killed on friday at a mosque in the north sinai region over one hundred others were injured as yet no group has claimed responsibility but authorities say the attackers were seen carrying on this little mix tape like it's believed between twenty five and thirty mosques gunmen were involved in what's said to have been a twenty minute tuc in response egyptian warplanes have been conducting strikes on suspected terrorists positions.
2:05 pm
apart from the scale of abject brutality of the assault many were also shocked by the choice of target it's said to be the first time worshippers have been attacked inside a mosque in egypt it's the country's cup the christians as well as security forces who usually brought the brunt of such violence but it does appear to follow a broader trend in the middle east the mosque where the attack took place was the birthplace of a revered sufi cleric it's frequented by the followers of sophism which is the inner mystic dying mention of islam they are considered to be heretics by islamic fundamentalists and are as a result often targeted by extremist groups. we talked to middle east analyst martin j. about the assault he thinks there will no be a concerted effort by the egyptian government to deal with extremism in the sinai region to prevent more attacks like we saw it's interesting and it's significant that mosques may well be no future trend in egypt or or in the in the sinai
2:06 pm
province i think this particular mosque in the sinai. which was known to be a supporter of assisi and susie's cc's crackdown on terrorism that probably put it in the firing line as an alternative strand of islam and i think that was another statement so a double whammy of four four eisel or i'm still feeling two groups and sign a will have to wait and see whether that program extends itself will see a much more intelligent a more focused campaign to deal with this terrorism of the root cause and also i think the injection government are working very closely with israel and they'll put a lot of pressure on hamas now to not have anything to do with this group there are still a few tunnels in operation in terms of transporting of arms and hamas will also be on the radar. to another story we're closely following u.s. regulators say their plans to revoke so-called net neutrality rules of widespread public backing the move could lead to a two tier internet where some sites pay to get their traffic prioritized over
2:07 pm
others but it seems that not all the public feedback was genuine. seeing this is pretty annoying and if net neutrality is rolled back in the us people will be seeing a lot more of it here's how it works at the moment internet providers have to treat all online traffic equally that means that they can't block or slow anything down but all thirty's will matter and they think the private sector will invest trillions of dollars into web services if their plan goes ahead they even asked the country what it thought of the move people to submit comments and twenty two million replied the majority in favor of repealing net neutrality problem is some users started to complain that they didn't write the comments then approved by the new york attorney general revealed some feedback to the f.c.c. plan was actually fake hundreds of thousands of americans were likely impersonated to drown out the views of real people and businesses this was
2:08 pm
a can to identity theft on a massive scale. but the scale might be even bigger than that one data scientist claims he's found at least one point three million fake pro repeal comments repetitive language looking as if it was generated by a computer program meanwhile the national tracking poll shows that the majority of americans actually support net neutrality as to who is definitely against it the telecom corporations who stands and huge profits by charging more for faster connections and by the way the current head of the f.c.c. used to work for the biggest telecom operators in the u.s. . well we've asked the federal communications commission to comment on the investigation into those allegations of fake comments on foreign meddling as yet no response if they do we'll tell you. twitching here is no experiment simulating a mission to the moon has just ended in russia half

2:10 pm
will this is the first stage of the experiments next year participants will spend around four months in simulated space then in twenty nine thousand a isolation will last for eight months the final stage is expected to last for a run to a year it's hoped the results will help pave the way for anyone to travel into space in the not too distant future. soon normal citizens will be able to spend time in space it's going to be something that not just astronauts and not just highly trained personnel can go to so it's a very important that we take normal citizens or normals scientists that don't have astronaut background we see how they're going to work on these environments there are a lot of qualities that people generally have that could be used very efficiently in space exploration so i think that it's a good thing to have these sorts of programs of space collaboration and exploration
2:11 pm
that do not require people to go through this kind of formal you know nasa or russian astronaut and cosmonaut training. eagar kaufman is from human research program he highlighted some of the benefits of cooperation with russia so nasa has a long standing. collaboration with the research arena biomedical research where russian space industry particularly with i.b.m. p. institute for biomedical problems in russia we have been doing that for years. we bring a great deal of experience both sides. a lot of experience and in this area both sides have been conducting this type of research studies as well as spaceflight studies op on. the international space station for many years so it was only

natural for us to join forces and the latter to take basically leverage each other's abilities and it's only eleven makes sense to increase or efficiency in joining our forces and going further together. six islamist protesters are killed and nearly two hundred injured when riot police break up a demonstration over election rights in pakistan that story and more after the break. with more makers manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the final

minutes into the program welcome back american tech giants are being asked to help the country's immigration authorities it's reported they are planning to vet the social media accounts of people who want visas with more on what's proposed kill or block but. the information revolution and the boom of social media have put the world at our fingertips but they've also created some very convenient tools for the government so is the i.t. sector still what the users want us immigration and customs enforcement has asked tech companies microsoft included to help them screen the social media of people holding or applying for american visas in order to make that happen the government is asking them to develop special algorithms we have millions and millions and millions of people coming every year and subsequently to processing so we have to be smart about it and i'm sure there are tools out there that can help for microsoft this won't be the first experience they've had working with u.s.
2:15 pm
authorities last month microsoft released a program called as your government a cloud service of classified information customers with secret requirements can expect to gain access to technologies that scale including services such as cognitive capabilities artificial intelligence and predictive analytics amazon will also be helping to stock the government's tool box last week they released a cloud computing region that will be helping the cia and other intelligence agencies they double you asked secret region is a key component of the intel communities multi fabric cloud strategy and u.s. senator mitch mcconnell has blatantly stated that the i.t. sector should be working to serve us foreign policy goals and of course he mentioned the russians what we ought to do with regard to the russians is retaliate seriously retaliate against the russians and the. farms could be helpful and having those give us
2:16 pm
a way to to do that the tech sector is private it's supposed to only serve its users and its shareholders but recently more and more it's starting to look like silicon valley is a wing of the u.s. government caleb mop and r t new york we've got reaction to this including from u.s. journalist derek bruise now he say's that people should be aware of what can be done with thirty two. it's worth noting in understanding that when you search and you use google when you use social media tools like facebook and these other softwares and these other types of apps that they often are very forthcoming with your information they're willing to give your information over to the u.s. government without much of a fight some of them do put up a fight occasionally but for the most part they work with them very regularly and that's something you should take into consideration and perhaps pursue alternatives google is not the only search engine that exists there's better alternatives there's better alternatives to facebook there are better alternatives to all these different companies and at some point people should say if you want to support the
2:17 pm
u.s. government's surveillance and the u.s. government's push towards a police state that i'm not going to buy your product anymore i'm not going to use your product anymore it really will and could be problematic especially with the social media monitoring of immigrants and really the social media monitoring of all americans and in foreigners and people abroad it has implications beyond you know just whether or not the u.s. and these private industries are working together they're definitely working together whether it's for profit over something more nefarious we don't know at this point but i would say this is something more people should be paying attention to there's always been private industry working for governments that's kind of a standard practice but i do think that what we're seeing is this relationship between big business corporate america and the u.s. government it's getting further and further and mesh in till they're becoming just one single entity. moving to pakistan where the government has ordered the army be deployed to the country's capital islamabad after six people were
