human rights watch claims fifty two iraqi civilians were executed by use e.-d. fighters as revenge for supporting islamic state we talked to the group about an alleged revenge killings. will set up safe zones for women on new year's eve to repeat it to prevent a repeat of the mass sex assaults seem to me as a go and a lot to me it sounds it's a bit like i'm only be set up it's a good idea it's needed. in front of me. and our teammates are better in tribal leader his village has been flattened by israeli authorities more than a hundred times we find out why.
this is r.t. international coming to you live from moscow and take partridge's thank you for joining us. a new report by human rights watch claims u.c.d. fighters kidnapped and executed fifty two civilians from two iraqi tribes in june their seat is are a distinct ethnic religious group which abide by their own moral code witnesses claim the as he forces killed men women and children fleeing the fighting between eisel and government bank forces the victims from tribes that had reportedly sheltered and helped by so militants we talked to human rights watch activists. but there are two tribes these are sunni arab tribes one called into it the other jaish these are famous tribes from the area of so enjoy the historical homeland of the according to the izzy these two specific tribes were complicit with isis and the day that isis arrived in the area these tribes helped isis to round up his east
turn women into sex slaves and to massacre other members of the u.c.b. community since then i have spent much time with u.c.d. elders who told me they had drawn up a list of individuals and of tribes and would target them and kill them if they had the chance heard of incidents where or what is now a group of u.c.b. fighters you see the militia empowered on the payroll of the baghdad government that has targeted members of these two tribes but what we understand is that they're targeting anyone from these tribes women children men not because they were specifically involved in nice abuses and abuses against the israelis but just be care because they carry the name of this tribe according to top iraqi officials almost seven thousand new cd people were kidnapped by ourselves in twenty fourteen alone and three thousand still missing. little.
the man would offer us and skiffs and in the evenings they would get together and treat the women and have their fun with us. cause of. it was indescribable funny laugh turned into endless suffering tears and hunger i couldn't do anything not quite. i salute his ground in iraq belk is fairly also says the unlawful killing some torture. tribe members by new cd forces are not a dark chapter for the war torn country. and even in these battles against isis has been to end a horrific cycle of violence and your own violence in iraq allowing groups of armed actors to target tribes to target women children men and we have nothing to
do with the crimes of isis with complete impunity and i'm going to torture and execute with impunity really will spell disaster for for the next steps in iraq in any hopes of reconciliation through communities. where the world gearing up for new year's eve germany has come up with a new way to ensure security safe zones for women are being set up at butlins brandenburg gate party this comes in response to mass sexual assaults celebrations in cologne two years ago r.t. summary if an ocean has been gauging reaction in the german capital just like at new year's celebrations the world over hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to this place here in berkeley to see out the old and ringing the new you can see preparations are currently undergoing but keeping everyone safe without spoiling the atmosphere is a huge challenge for the authorities and these here organizers i go in one step
further aside from usual safety berries and alcohol bans and so-called women's safety area is being set up it's a zone where female guests will feel sexually harassed of just uncomfortable can get special help is being manned by members of german red cross and comes in response to events two years ago back then hundreds of women who were sexually assaulted at new year carnivals they were groped robbed intimidated and separated from their friends according to leaked police documents there were more than one thousand cases reported in cologne in hamburg alone more than two thousand men were reportedly. volved most of them asylum seekers the new idea of the women's safety area has received a mixed reaction that's a good idea many people feel like need help but they don't know who to ask to do and having this service is kind of nice i think sexual harassment was people who
were in groups and you were so how do you get from here to the safe place i mean. it seems a bit far fetched i don't think it's such a good idea it's to me it sounds it's a bit like an early be set up like oh i'm an afro freight but this initiative it's good to feel because it's needed. in front of nearly it's kind of interesting that they do it in a new year's as an event it's because i'd be better if it's like a long long get to like tutor or like the big not just pick one thing that you do first pressure because i don't know you sounded a little commercial you know way too early and police has also issued recommendations for those who are planning to come here for new year's celebrations including avoiding aggressive groups paying attention when someone gets too close and in case of any danger reporting to police reason otieno r.t.
from berlin. i mean while frank council member of the f.t. party in palin's parliament thinks instead of safe zones for women it's migration policies that need rethinking we feel that there is a new step of. danger coming into our country we've seen it since we have to already build vols against our christmas markets this is a development we do not want to see really policy should change we should not continue to have this mass immigration of illegal mass migration we do have we have to count and see who the people are who came to our country have to register them this is a process which has not been come to an end and we must close the borders in order to have a stable society you can go much further than the security forces or the politicians in germany go so that's a problem and that i think this is not a good sign for the new year to come. thousands of palestinians clashed with
israeli forces in gaza and the west bank on friday. i. was. already i was. i. was. rioters threw rocks and burned tires as they confronted i.d.f. troops in response soldiers deployed tear gas thousands of people needed treatment by paramedics mass demonstrations become a weekly occurrence since donald trump recognized jerusalem as israel's capital on december the sixth. ms rowley court has sentenced a sixty eight year old bedouin man to ten months in prison and planting more than ten thousand dollars for trespassing but he claims the land in question belongs to
him abdul mahdi army is a village elder in al iraqi located in southern israel but even tribes have settled there long before the state was established but israeli authorities claim they occupy the land in legally and send in riot police and bulldozers to demolish the village whenever it's rebuilt so far they've leveled it more than one hundred times horsley reports i'm here in the northern make of desert where there isn't much except a few dozen unrecognised bedwyn villages this is one belonging to the to retry but there are some two hundred fifty people who live here and they say that this land is they is going back generations but the israeli authorities insist they here illegally. have. the.
it will take years until this fighting ends they are looking to push out so will compromise and will give this land to the state. if i was jewish the soldiers wouldn't come here at six in the morning on a rainy day they don't care this is just a bedouin house they don't think the bedouins are human beings they don't care that bedouins the citizens of this country they don't care that bedouins live on this land not the country's land. the tribes says they've lived here for seven hundred and fifty years. this document is from one thousand a five in the autumn in the air and the second one with the red stamps is also from autumn in times nine hundred twenty nine and this third one doesn't. have to do with the land is from nine hundred thirty six in these are receipts from taxes for the land.
everybody here is family father mother uncle aunt relatives only the alps worry family is buried in this cemetery no one else only al tory tried and their relatives billboard. now russia has had a very busy year in twenty seventeen if you were to believe the mainstream media especially when it comes to sowing discord and interfering in elections worldwide but russian's foreign minister had a few words to say about that in his latest interview. it was all above board. but. you know we.
often work you do and you. were right. you mean you. were doing this as a simple user would. people which is what. we've said you know this the but the but when you go go go go. so did you hear that russia's foreign minister actually admitted to meddling in elections around the world i don't pay attention as this is because i did no no that was actually a video. what do you think do you think that that actually i mean are you surprised by that that he would admit to actually meddling in the u.s. election absolutely i think definitely changed everything that the public was seeing right now and of course he would never meet if they did anyway right it's quite surprising that he would have made something like that and even go further
it's actually it's a prank video it was a comedy show that he did he was totally being certain guys i miss him already i knew. he was being sarcastic ok much more sense you're saying he's joking yeah it was a comedy program yeah right but who knows that he's joking do you feel like people are predisposed to believe negative things about russia one hundred years ago and to say i think that we have a very negative connotation about people and yeah it's the way versions are pictured than western countries. that he thought installing the latest antivirus software would protect you from being hacked and think again even leading cyber security expert john mcafee hasn't been immune he claims his twitter account was breached and used as part of an elaborate crypto currency scout well here's what happened.
can who has hacked twitter has been notified of the day tweet was not me. or john mcafee is the creator of the popular mcafee antivirus software is also behind a wide range of other cyber security products we spoke to him about his own online security woes and his take on the rise of cryptocurrency we lie on a number of people who are on our carriers the telephone share is around twitter my
father was hacked through my carrier eighteen prior to being hacked my phone was totally disabled you couldn't call into it i got calls from it they sent to my phone number a special code so that i could get in but it wasn't me it was the hacker. this is something totally out of my control totally out of everyone's control what happened to me is not a threat but there's a great threat to our mind this is a great threat to our. cryptocurrency most people do not come and sit on their own while we're living in a new world and a new world of risks before all of us using the internet or something coming more and more efficient and more sophisticated in their hacking techniques this is going to happen to me i promise you it can happen to him or. r.t. talks to the son of a french aid worker who's been held hostage by terrorists in mali for more than
america is going to say that we are apparently better than blue that i see people you've never heard of love redacted the next president of the world bank so terry i'm going to write a seriously send us an e-mail. welcome back it's been more than a year since a senior french aid worker was abducted in mali she gone there to help malnourished children so people one that is seventy two years old back in twenty sixteen she was taken hostage by local terrorists and in july this year she was shown alongside five other captives in so-called proof of life footage released by al qaeda or spoke to her son who says despite an ongoing investigation he's received no information about his mother nor the ease with the paris prosecutor ordered an urgent investigation but it has stalled we are now trying to find new materials to
restart it so that it won't be a bow. and in due to a lack of results we were establishing contacts to try to trace her and seeking any information to establish with the she's alive and where she might be found so far we have no news nothing concrete be the from the kidnappers nor from any contact persons and also nothing from the foreign ministry's crisis center. well the number of those kidnapped by terrorists has been rising sharply last year the total number worldwide reached almost sixteen thousand people in july french president emanuel like long called for the mobilization of all possible resources to bring sophie back however after a year she still trapped in mali. if your boss will be a little but the odds of today my thoughts are with our competitor it's a fifty seven on who was abducted in go on christmas eve you know and you may be sure that all the resources of the state are being mobilized to foreign her and bring her back to her family but also be certain that as far as i'm concerned i
will not give in to any provocation because that is precisely what our attackers want it's good that they can be contacted for support her family has been disappointed by the government's failure to make any decisions in this case yes it's wonderful that we are being supported with the world who really needs support is my mother we need to ask mr marquand about this he has power in the situation he can decide on a course of action it must be admitted that so far no progress has been made in tackling this matter. the first ship carrying russian produce gas has reached the u.k. under a new energy deal the liquefied natural gas is produced by a company which the u.s. has put on its sanctions list in a move strongly supported by london at the time the first round of washington sanctions were imposed in twenty fourteen in response to russia's alleged military invasion of ukraine the us has always been critical of russia's gas supplies to europe the americans say these undermine the continent's energy security with
moscow using fuel supplies as a foreign policy tool of the e.u. that britain has supported we have seen how countries such as putin's russia used tear gas supplies as a tool of foreign policy threatening to cut off supplies or drastically increase prices it's not in europe's interests it's not in our interests it's also a political rather than a commercial undertaking and there is an existing framework in place for the e.u. to take more aggressive action on north stream two and similar projects if it wished to do so politically however the end of twenty seventeen has seen the u.k. out in the cold and in need of russian gas and started around three weeks ago when the most important type lines of bread. was shut down due to a crack then one of the biggest hubs in europe suffered an explosion which led to a shop rise in gas prices and britain has faced an unusually cold winter with blizzards and freezing temperatures and gas experts mando salamis says britain has foregone foreign policy for cheaper russian fuel why is the european union but if
them sub borked you are sanctions when it comes to their own needs they can put aside or a share of the sanctions for their own benefit and that is the situation with the united kingdom now russia has a liability supply of fuel so i think that will continue of course the united states would like to be able to to use europe as dependence on russian gas and a lot of oil but they come out they might try through sanctions doing careers that are supplies of really. but it will not work because very can be is far more expensive than the russian gas. two professors from san diego state university claim follows markets in the u.s.
contributes to the oppression of the country's minorities. the professor's claim almost tof of all markets are set up in wealthy areas which discourages poor residents and people of color that's just white markets often being established to help promote low income and minority communities and it's not the first time this year the race card has been played on apparently innocent things.
we have. doctors here who never thought about the weight of care until the year ago they thought the relatives would hate them and relatives loved them and it just so absolutely inspiring to hear something at telephone call or a person coming actually i just had a man in my room oh said the same words he says my wife has just died thank you. los angeles the city of luxury and free but also an alarming number of people
living in the streets. a simple fact in l.a. use there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in and it's been a struggle. to get this man from his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the authorities accept such. a tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution you craft someone wanted touring the site otherwise it will be a free for all the news there a better alternative to envy homelessness crisis. it is the big countdown the ball is going to drop the new year starting resolutions
will be created it's all so very exciting let's check in. a batch or sudden passing i phone the just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last. strong turn. your at the top to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me 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 fret. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more 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 again like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite different s.p.t.
now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. in two thousand and sixteen the panama papers shocked the world with the tax haven secrets two trillion united states dollars passed through most of conseco in the amount of time that we had that then in the panama papers exposure that's what it shows a lot of money it really is. journalism it's a fact of journalism looking at things that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things secret. millions of mosaddeq from circa documents were examined. the only people which basically have tried to get an advantage out of this sort of newspaper. and probably other politician which were attacking other politicians the media would
point to find their targets such as the kings of morocco in saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. my god i've had so i have. so many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very striking there were no one americans in the us specially. people from the brics countries specially brazil russia and china that their special project reveals what was missed in the media coverage. of the panama chronicles. you. know. the full.
