a dozen injured is detained by russian old boris and it's. a very warm welcome you're watching r.t. international with me nicky aaron there's another within this hour our top story the new report by human rights watch claims you see the fighters kidnapped and executed fifty two civilians from two iraqi tribes in june these it is are an ethno religious group which abide by their own moral code when it is claim using the forces killed men women and children who were fleeing fighting between islamic state and government banks forces the victims were from tribes that had reportedly sheltered and helps i saw militants build his will from human rights watch told is that anyone in these tribes has now become a target. 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 c.d.'s 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 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 are 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 he's eighty people were kidnapped but i saw in twenty fourteen alone and three thousand are still missing. the man would offer us and skiffs in the evenings they would get together and treat the women and have their fun with us. it was indescribable for me laugh turned into endless suffering tears and hunger i couldn't do anything not quite. as i still loses ground in iraq bell kids will says the unlawful killings and torture of tribe members of easy forces are another dark top to for the war torn country. only 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 the next steps in iraq in any hopes of reconciliation communities. with the world in gearing up for new year's celebrations birdland has come up with a new way to ensure security safe zones for women are being set up at the brandenburg gate party this comes in response to mass sexual assaults at celebrations in the german city of cologne two years ago artie's maria for national has been gauging reaction in the 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 philly to see out the old and bringing the new you can see preparations are currently undergoing with 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 gas will feel sexually harassed of just uncomfortable can get special help it's been men 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 involved most of them asylum seekers the new idea. all 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 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 farfetched 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 years as a events 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 souses little commercial you know way to
early in 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 ocean r.t. from berlin. frank hanzal a member of the a.s.d. party unbalance parliament thinks instead of safe zones the 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 two already built vaults 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 migration of illegal mass immigration 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 goal so that's a problem that i think this is not a good sign for the new year to come. one protester has died and dozens more were injured after thousands of palestinians classed with israeli forces in gaza and the west bank on friday writers through vox and burn tires as they confronted israeli defense forces all the soldiers responded with tear gas. oh my. god. i. want demonstrated died in hospital and thousands were treated by paramedics the israeli military retaliated
after rockets were fired from little as a strip although no title teams were reported mass demonstrations have become a weekly occurrence since donald trump recognized jerusalem as israel's capital on december sixth. what you islam is just one of many bitter alarm disputes in the area and israeli court has sentenced to sixty eight year old bedouin man to ten months in prison and fined him more than ten thousand dollars for trespassing but he claims the territory in question belongs to him other medium is a village elder in keep in southern israel but are in tribes had settled there long before the state of israel was proclaimed an israeli authorities claim the tribes occupy their land illegally and have sent in riot police and bulldozers to demolish the village whenever it's rebuilt so far they've leveled it more than one hundred times artie's policy of reports. i'm here in the nor the negev desert where there
isn't much except a few dozen unrecognized bedwyn villages this is one belonging to the to each tribe they are some two hundred and 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. copied. the. zip. it will take years until this fighting ends they looking to push out so will compromise and will give this land to the state. ema your duty 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 trying to say is they've lived here for seven hundred and fifty years many this document is from nine hundred eighty five in the autumn an era 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 it's from nine hundred thirty six and these are receipts from taxes for the land. everybody here is family father mother uncle aunt relatives only the alps henri family is buried in this cemetery no one else only al tory tried and their relatives are ball. back and. looking. like
a suspect in this week's terror attack in some paint his book has been detained seconds in the has the latest. the russian security services put out a statement saying that they have identified and detained the alleged organizer and perpetrator of this is attacked that took place on wednesday they emphasize that they do believe this was a one man working by himself he planned and carried out the attack all by himself and no further information about the suspect has been released yet but we do know that he's being questioned by the russian investigative committee and they have already come out saying that they are going to make a request to officially arrest him on that charge well a man who is believed to be seen i believe we can show you a video right now of the man he is seen entering a grocery store with a backpack on and it's believed that this is the man who left that backpack in a locker near the entrance of the grocery store and then quickly left and the resulting blast left over
a dozen people injured and some of which are still in hospital unfortunately and in the aftermath the president came out saying that this was a terrorist attack the day after he said that islamic state did take credit for at the explosion and of course now the suspect is in custody will be hoping for more information on what the motivation was and what not of course many will remember that earlier this year in april another terrorist attack did take place in st petersburg and there metro and that killed over that killed fourteen people and wounded over forty more and that was one of the most deadly terrorist attacks to have taken place in that city but of course it actually could have been in fact worse because there was a second device that just did not explode and was diffused in time. iran has been hit by mass rallies across the country both for and against the government's early this week protests against the high cost of living place in iran's second largest city but shuns isolated turns political and spread across the
country on saturday crowds nationwide then took part in mass rallies in support of the government of the country. supremum leader they were marking the anniversary of pro-government rallies in two thousand and nine which condemned what they called foreign orchestrated and rest after the elections however u.s. criticism is only focusing on the anti-government protests. many reports of peaceful protests by iranian citizens fed up with regimes corruption and squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism a brooch. iranian government should respect their people's rights including the right to express themselves the world is watching but already we do see that foreign players are involving themselves in iranian affairs and this is ironic because the united states right now complaining about a legit russian involvement in the us elections even though they've never provided any evidence for this but i personally don't think that this is anything of major
significance i think the west and western media they want to exaggerate the importance these are protests. that were small most of them were expressing their economic grievances and very few were expressing hostility toward the government or the state and today there are actually counter protests against those groups that were protesting against the political order and they were much larger numbers across the country but again those were not reflected in the west for me. as an active hosted hostage situation at a post office in the northeastern city of kharkov five eleven hostages have been releasing clued in three women and two children the attacker claims to have explosives but that's not yet been confirmed his motives are also as yet unknown earlier police said he was told to surrender otherwise or thirty's would be ready
to use force negotiations are underway and the hostage takers father has been brought in to help the talks we'll bring to you more on this seems we get it. coming up the son of an elderly friend jade worker abducted in africa who says president looks wrong isn't doing anything to help we've got this story and more coming up after this short break. it is the big countdown the ball is going to drop new years starting resolutions will be created it's all so very exciting let's.
we have. doctors here who never thought about it but we took care until the year ago they thought the relatives would hate them and i would just love them and they're just so absolutely inspiring to hear something a telephone call or a person coming actually i just had a man in my room most of the same words he says my wife has just died thank you. russia has had a very busy year and twenty seventeen if you were to believe the mainstream media that is especially when it comes to sowing discord and it's a ferry in elections worldwide but russia's foreign minister had a few words to say about that in his latest interview. there's all the billboard.
but if. we put the goods to put it. off like you do a new. push to reduce again there's nothing you post was right. up there with. the manuals in the political news there's a simple user words. which is the group of we've said the oldest about the bill will 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 tell us i did no no that is actually a video. and. 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 admit 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 second guy 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 today i think that we have a very negative connotation about people and yeah it's the way versions are pictured than western countries. the son of an elderly french aid worker abducted in africa. yes they have family is disappointed at how little president
has done to help free her so if they patrolled in those seventy two years old back in two thousand and sixteen she was abducted in the city of gal by local terrorists this july she was shown in so-called proof of life at first it's released by al qaeda it showed her alongside five other captives her son says despite an ongoing investigation he has received no information about his mother. the parents 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 abandoned due to a lack of results we are establishing contacts to try to trace her and seeking any information to establish with this she is 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. over the past five years the number of people kidnapped by terrorists has been rising sharply
last year there were almost sixteen thousand kidnappings worldwide after hostage footage of so he was posted online the french president pledged to eradicate the militants behind the kidnapping however after a year she's still trapped in mali. if your boss will do your looking better yourself today my thoughts are with our compatriots of people going on who was abducted in girl on christmas eve 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 but 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. two professors from san diego state university claim farmers markets in the us are contributions into the oppression of the country's minorities their professors claim almost half of all markets are catalysts for gentrification and this leads to the exclusion of poorer long term residents sounds people of color and also reinforces the consumption habits of white people or this is despite markets often being established to help promote low income and minority communities and this is not the first time this year the race card has been played on apparently innocent issues.
