monster is terrible terrible advantage disgusting even the former 1st lady couldn't stay away because women stick together i was shocked and appalled i was just sick i was shocked i was appalled the issue really is how terrible his behavior was and finally women have come forward to speak out about it this almost became a story that could have been because the investigation into weinstein and the rape allegations was almost killed by a channel that considers itself to be a beacon of women's rights there has been no clear example this year of journalism's ability to change the world training films do almost nothing to stop the harassment when it comes to women and sexual harassment the topic you know i care a lot about it appears need to movement has finally hit wall street ronan farrow a pulitzer winning journalist says that n.b.c. wanted to end his investigation they ordered a hard stop to reporting they told me and
9:03 pm
a producer working on this that we should not take a single call they told us to cancel interviews the question for years has been why why because the network got a call from a certain harvey yes the same harvey harvey weinstein who threatened to expose matt lauer's nefarious activities if the story saw the light of day well it did anyway and farrow went to the new yorker and even wrote a book catch and kill weinstein made it known to the network that he was a well behaved and capable of revealing it and it looks like hillary clinton didn't want pharaoh's investigation to be published either her of all people hillary clinton had scheduled an interview all of us at the head of the weinstein reporting and her folks got in touch and said we're working on a big story sounded very concerned and tried to cancel that interview over the weinstein over the incident stuff errol claims that clinton's publicist approached him and pressured him to drop the story and what he says was weinstein's behest clinton's press people tried to. since themselves from the scandal i genuinely
9:04 pm
respect roman's work but have no idea what weinstein was saying to people to save himself what i do know is simple i've already rejected the wind sinco proposed dork about the election before talking to ronin if i used to be misrepresented franks it wouldn't be the 1st time and b c denied any wrongdoing and b c news signed the harvey weinstein's story to ruin and we completely supported it over many months with resources but financial and editorial of the 7 months without one victim witness on the record he simply didn't have a story that my standard for broadcast no that's of any major news organization now for n.b.c. to say that ronan farrow didn't have a story has got to be embarrassing at this point not only did he expose the rich and powerful but he got a pulitzer prize for doing it makes you wonder if news outlets just their principles when the powerful start pressing i think his words can entirely be trusted i think what we're seeing right now is just the advancement of fake news in
9:05 pm
america you know it's like the president said just last week it's no longer fake news it's now corrupt news and n.b.c. has jumped right on that train you would think that these liberals would be all about this being that they preach social justice and feminism and women's rights but the reality is that these people have deep pockets i think that hillary clinton is only about women's rights when it's convenient for her so when you have somebody like weinstein who is able to contribute to the democratic party and able to you know have the media and his pockets because of the amount of money he has the agenda for these democrats goes out the window we've been shown this time and time again that money talks over policy so they can pretend that the policy is something that they want to it here too but the reality is when their friends have money and their friends can finance their campaigns and finance their agendas they play dirty and i think hillary clinton's about as dirty as they. she's right down there with

9:07 pm
while locals are mourning the deceased girl placing flowers where her body was reportedly found we spoke to the girl's aunt in the family's 1st interview since the tragedy. which to release it wasn't the ordinary sweet seeing in gymnastics just a sweet child i'm not sure she would talk to strangers on the street she was an open and trusting child but she was told not to approach strangers or to respond to unknown man she was a good and sweet child he says grandmother quote me when they discovered she was not at school she said lisa had disappeared. a promise that they need to be formed such parties people started touching one along that path but it was all in vain if we did not expect such a public reaction we simply can't post requests for help. social media and people
9:08 pm
responded and it resulted in such a big such. others that i expressed my deepest scratched you to the people it is an incredible response many thanks really lisa's mother is holding on as best she can you. see this for it's. all the children go to school that way when i saw that part for the past time i was shocked it was terrible i understand the anger of some people they ask why let a child go along that path but a lot of children use it every day he said was unlucky officials have promised to ensure the jogging to school is safe and i hope the measures will be taken but we will not sit back he says mother will write to them again and again. british officials say there was an escape attempt by eisel family members from the all hole refugee camp in the region of northern syria attacked by turkey it's gape
9:09 pm
attempt was caught on video cam security stopped them fleeing officials say dozens of residents attacked the exit gate of the camp where tens of thousands of eisel relatives were kept a spokesperson for the kurdish forces said the security situation in the area was critical since turkey began its offensive on northern syria on wednesday similar warnings have been raised not only by the kurds but intent internationally as well . the vision does not only threaten the reactivation revival of islamic states but has revived and activated it stills in chemistry and other areas where they're fighting on 2 fronts one against the turkish invasion and another against the organization. of the statement told of the threat. well they're going to be escaping to europe that's where they want to go military action will undermine the security of the coalition partners namely the kurdish forces and risk
9:10 pm
protected instability in syria providing 1st time a ground for discharge and. there are hundreds and thousands of i saw militants where will they go this is a real friend to all of us. and the pentagon is denying any responsibility for prisoners in the area insisting that is turkey's job. as i understand it the united states has no legal responsibility for those detainees the turkish military has responsibility not only for the prisoners but for collateral damage humanitarian assistance all the rest of it in the areas in which they're conducting a large scale military operation there is big doubt that you would be able to do with that 1st of all when i arrived at that particular camp and find them safely guarded or. most of them gun or even if. i mean managed to do that how they will deal with them their main road has to be on the europeans taking. most of them to europe they
9:11 pm
brought up there and you would hope. that they did not do much to stop them coming to syria and simply they know their way to go back or to. another country is they managed to go through. this he believes that they have realized. so they could be as well they could leave the blaze and go somewhere we don't know to europe to other countries. for sure that are at risk. operation peace spring began on wednesday with turkey launching airstrikes on kurdish held positions prior to the operation the u.s. had withdrawn its forces in the area and something could see as a betrayal withdrawal sent shock waves across america with many condemning trump for turning his back on the allies but there seem to be double standards over the issue as are the of comments. kurds a hero's shout that people who couldn't point out on the map where the kurds live
9:12 pm
brave say the people who never have and never would fight alongside them how how could try tray them say the people who couldn't care less about. it's just fashionable these days playing the cod using them to get attention or for pathetic little political games where is the honesty is the truth. well let's try c.n.n. in this case you're looking at not only betraying the kurds and betraying some of our other allies in the gulf region what the president has done to the kurds the betrayal of the kurds to be butchered by the turks. are the ground forces that destroyed the caliphate with american air power we've abandoned them there breaks my heart the message is clear c.n.n.
9:13 pm
stand by the or well rather some cnn's other cnn's want those terrible kurdish terrorists stamped out as soon as possible this year not to go to c.n.n. time right now on the frontier of the border point you saw it was one of the 1st targets that the terrorist organization as you can see at that point there was a huge explosion that area is in the hands of the p.k. k. terrorist organization and we see an end price of the boundary approximately 70 meters away and the areas that you see around us all of them are in the hands of the p.k. k. terrorist organization absolutely remarkable c.n.n. turk license is the name on the condition that they adhere to c.n.n. strict journalism standards so how how did the same journalistic standards and with one c.n.n. almost worshiping kurds and the other c.n.n.
9:14 pm
all but cheering their deaths but come on picking an easy targets what sane person trust journalists these days scratch the journalists what about celebrities with their newfound admiration for kurds surely they're sincere i want you to ask can there is blood on anyone's hand starting with has a president trying to is letting this happen because these people are being slaughtered after standing with our troops in the middle east. for a really long time fighting against terrorists powerful words from the daughter of the late john mccain like father like daughter but i've been so mad this morning and so upset about this news that we are abandoning our kurdish allies in the middle east these are allies of ours that american soldiers are still continuing to fight alongside all we did was arm them and they fought for america and to everyone in the white house and every republican who is mad that president obama pulled out
9:15 pm
of iraq you unpatriotic cowards that feckless unpatriotic callid is also your daddy meghan or have you not seen this photo there is your father and next to him is syrian rebel commander general salim idriss who your daddy did his best and train who is now eradicating those same kurds we are ready for the operation to the east of the free t. s. these lands are currently under the control of the syrian democratic forces group which includes the kurdistan workers party ringleaders these terrorists occupying our homes but c'mon meghan mccain isn't john mccain she may have reason to fame entirely for being his daughter that doesn't mean she have different opinions again last example justify this contradicting yourself we destroyed
9:16 pm
i says with the help of the kurds we can't abandon the kurds now we can't turn it over to turkey to think that will work is really. really miss the grid him it seems like there's 2 possibilities either the senator really supports the kurds with his heart or he's just another spineless hypocrite using the kurds to score cheap political points. case you're on the fence enjoy this it's the recording of a righteous senator speaking to pranksters who pretended to be the turkish minister of defense you know why p.g. kurdish problem is a real problem i told pros to trump obama made a huge mistake in relying on the y p g curd everything i worried about come true and now we've got to make sure that turkey is protected from the spirit in syria
9:17 pm
sympathetic to the white p.g. problem and those to proscribe court for it honestly seems like principles and integrity going extinct i feel sorry for you abandoned by your allies facing invasion there and on top of all of that every 2 faced hypocrite is called out from under the rocks to use your hurt your pain your suffering for the. pathetic advantage. of the 16 people have been killed in an attack on a mosque in the west african nation of brooklyn a far so gunman opened fire inside the building during friday prayers earlier my colleague just vulgar discuss the issue with r.t. correspondents ask you to. what reports have just come in as you said that 16 people have been killed and 2 others seriously injured in a mosque attack in kenya fast so this actually happened late on friday or only now
9:18 pm
beginning to piece together the story because there's very little information even now what we do know is that a number of unidentified gunman opened fire in a mosque in a village in the north of the west african country and this is not the only country suffering from attacks one no again we don't know anything about the motives of the group involved in this particular attack but we can say that the incident isn't right in the region i mean picking up faster has been battling an islamist insurgency and with. seeing the terror spill into for example mali which is in a conflict with the hardest. and in fact to the very start of october we saw one of the deadliest attacks in the region in recent times and that was off to mali and army bases on the border with the targeted not result in the death of 8 soldiers and several dozens all still missing as is often an affiliate of al qaeda claimed
9:19 pm
responsibility for the attack this of course led to heightened pressure on the 1000000 government from its people who say that not enough is being done to tackle the issue of the is a missed insurgency and this frustration was really bolstered by cries of several other west african countries who are worried about the spillover into within their own borders why a particular. so while for the islamists this is a hot spot it's something they want to get their hands on because it's part of a vast space called so how and this is a land that stretches from africa to coast all the weight or trailer and for them they believe that if they can establish their presence in that region and gain access to certain major ports they'll be able to establish a clear trafficking route for both drugs and weapons from oh why her perception of what's the international reaction to what's going on in the region while the
9:20 pm
international community would argue that it's doing its best to try and calm the conflict that you for example is committed to building security in the region and it's keen to prevent any spillover of crime terrorism and crucially migration it is of course in the europeans interest. to get to the root of the issue so that they do not have any mass migration to the continent which is obviously as we well know a controversial and divisive political issue in europe since 2015 the french for example of. on the ground and various nations including u.k. germany and spain sent in surveillance aircraft they've been a bit more hesitant to send in troops but there's been little success from these efforts because the contributions are widely considered small poorly coordinated often just come too late and that's possible was a sort of final point here that cynics would say that international efforts to help
9:21 pm
including providing aid as well as troops are part of a wider geopolitical game the u.s. and china for example are both keen to gain influence all across africa since it provides an amazing opportunity for infrastructure including the building of ports of railways of roads china is actually slightly ahead in the race for sort of trade and influence in the region so a lot of political issues in play here africa is important strategically and unfortunately all these major powers of just looking for influence in the region we are seeing an increasing number of attacks just like this. young going syrian crisis russia's middle east policy and economic ties with the arab countries these are just some of the topics touched upon in a foreign agent interview given by vladimir putin to r.t. arabic our obeah sky news arabia we will be showing you that full interview on sunday on r t international you will also be able to watch it at r.t. dot com but here's
9:22 pm
a short. little bit of logic 1st if anyone thinks that seizing tank is an attacking oil infrastructure can in any way think cooperation between russia and iran friends saudi arabia and the u.a.e. if they can undermine or break down our cooperation with us then they are profoundly wrong so. you're a big country like iran which has existed on its territory for thousands of years and has its own interests persians and iranians have lived here for centuries and we should respect those interests those 2. that is our butts of which if you are so you need to have dialogue to understand each other to puzzle out all the nuances intricacies and issues without dialogue you cannot solve any problem that is why i think i can share the concerns of the u.a.e. and saudi arabia but in the case of bilateral issues it is up to them to resolve them which is to say you. are all the forces deployed illegitimately inside any sovereign state in this case syria must leave this is true for everyone if syria's
9:23 pm
new legitimate government chooses to say that they have no more need for russia's military presence this way just is true for russia right now we are discussing this openly with all our partners including iran and turkey we spoke about it with our american partners many times and i will be open with you as i have been with my counterparts syria must be free from other states military presence and the territorial integrity of the syrian arab republic must be completely restored. if you work for russia today don't you while it is because of people like you that russia weak used of meddling in the election. put ins interview comes ahead of his official visits to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates which will be the 1st since 2007 earlier russian journalists visited the saudi oil refineries they were type last month now the facilities are working again but some of the destruction is still visible oil and trade along with
9:24 pm
regional security on president putin's agenda during his visit to saudi arabia. by the dozen for me i'll be back with more news of top the hour this is our change national. you know world a big part of new things a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bad and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
9:25 pm
really get the. room that was appealed to social media needs it's just. that they did some things. that. let's. let. the commission says so smoking. pot on the. let's call. lists at least. that.
9:26 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront ation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful it's very clear to kill time time to sit down and talk. thinking of getting a cue from the ones we got in here shows no problem was as he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired coach you don't need a crate with him he will just stir reaching out into the wall when it's pretty much anywhere near and thousands of breeding dogs are caged in in 2 main conditions on puppy farm i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the courtier the rain the snow the founder nothing they have no protection. to continue

. to get through chaos across the u.s. cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows and pet stores most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sold in stores even joined a group businesses are involved like agoa mom center there has been a shocking amount of organized opposition to adverts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding for so many days most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with jobs don't buy dog. this is a murder that was caught on video the murder was committed by the great street
9:28 pm
crips it was an in-house murder meaning that a street crypt killed another street crips oftentimes gang members killed by cold and one of the code says to never commit crimes against your own gang members in this particular scenario or murder investigation there was a. transplant that was a narcotics user he went to purchase narcotics from 3 crew members on the narcotics was either bad or he was somehow slighted on it as a result he went to another great street cred gang member in got a gun with a gun the transience shot and killed a street gang member at the time of the shooting there was another great street gang member with each person that was killed the victim of the murder and according to the game code he asked to make amends for allowing a gang member to be killed on his own watch. if he doesn't act toward take. some sort of action against the shooter and he will be disciplined by his own gang so.
9:29 pm
on this scenario that particular crips gang member. carries out the murder against the great street gang member who provided the gun to the transit and it's all caught on video. this is inside jordan downs it's mid day and you can see there's about 10 to 15 gang members loading the parking lot. just going about their daily business. is the group of the members several of them loitering you going to see the victim of the shooting come running. to this area with the suspect shooting behind them. here you can see on the big game members scatter. and they kind of hang around. because they know it's going to be a great street on great street or who's disciplining another member so they sit. around and watch where it is it was a rival gang shooting all of them with one out of the way because they'd all be
9:30 pm
intended targets here the suspect is chasing the victim around the vehicle. and he's just waiting to kill him. here the victim tries to run the suspect shoots him in the hand. he falls. and then he comes up and finishes a mom. puts the gun in his back we're going to somebody and then just slowly walks away he has nothing really to fear here in the neighborhood because they're all great secret gang members and he's banking on the fact that no one's going to go to court and testify against them. and again you see that nobody's really shocked about it nobody's talking about it nobody chased down the suspect. and then they just go about their daily activities and then obviously homicide will come in and start their investigation. the 1st time i was shot 3 times i mean i really didn't realize it until my stomach starbird.
