walk here of course it's anti terror operation anti-government forces used to control this territory but army troops forced them out closer to the regional capital fighters now say that this area in orange is under their control and they're driving the army out in the past few days they managed to seize around a dozen towns the ukrainian army is surrounded in several locations as you can see here in the latest incident hundreds of soldiers were encircled but were allowed to leave three humanitarian corridors right now and to government forces are closing in on the port city of mariupol they say they've blocked all the road roads leading in and out of the city however no offensive has been planned or if a national reports on what the civilian population is going through during kiev's assault what many feared could happen is happening the constant bombardment of the guns has destroyed buildings and streets and populated basements
. every time we visit we find more people sheltering underground a cold and humid room three meters down is the only place these people feel safe that you know you're going to hear or that you even heard from the pointer tell anything like that it's not loony and what that frankly is to. believe here in the world would we need to have. to stay tuned. this is a soviet era bomb shelter built during the cold war but until now it hadn't been used. because those. clashes are also intensifying around the guns go is to surround the city and cut off the anti-government forces from their bases people from the embattled areas
surrounding the guns are among those seeking refuge from the fierce fighting which has overwhelmed their homes by the you're heading up on to. your flock. to jupiter studio to ship the ocean. obviously a movie to the confidence wayne la doesn't need for thought but a mission when the because family celebrate the birthday of one of the younger members the also good thing is that they have finally found some kind of safety and it will not. give me a good a stereo it is too worth putting that on one with both of the equipment in order before i see that you are all just little and how it's done. in the not to shake it up andrey used to love playing war like old boys of his age questionable a lot but not anymore. andrey shows me what he found in their back yard after another shelling these tiny and lethal metal guards. sprayed from
so-called flechette shells which are internationally banned here's large scale military operation here in eastern ukraine has lasted almost five months so far as more destruction is caused and the casualties rise people's pain feeds the endor and many fear when the guns fall silent ukraine will not be able to overcome the consequences of what has happened here. r.t. in eastern ukraine in the meantime human rights watch says three hundred civilians have died in new ganske since may an indiscriminate bombing members of the organization just back from the city say many attacks were carried out in populated areas indiscriminate attacks are a violation of international law or anti-government leaders and they don't yet can you guns regions have settled their positions on a stumbling ties with kiev and the conditions that need to be met to get more on the story on our website r.t.
dot com. in iraq kurdish forces are advancing on the hardest from the islamic state that have occupied the northwest of the country with the help of u.s. airstrikes i'm sure volunteers they've managed to take over a militant stronghold coming to senior fighters meanwhile western leaders are raising the alarm of a possible jihadist attacks on european and american soil bases prompted a wider debate over the west taking on the islamic state parties going across or have a look at some of the proposed solutions. as more countries admit they're up against an abstract threats from international fighters join an islamic state it's more important than ever to find a common solution i don't want to put the cart before the horse we don't have a strategy yet there's no point in me asking for. action on the part of congress before i know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job done. america might not know what to do gets but germany seems to have an idea to
spend seventy million euros arming kurdish forces to deter islamic state militants in iraq where it's believed some four hundred radicalize germans are fighting. among terrorists seize control over an area to create a base for their reign of terror and to retreat try the fanatics this creates a dangerous it affects our security interests but is getting even more involved a viable way forward i'm not sure if the kurds especially if there are influences from the p.k. k p k k is known to be a terrorist organization p k k it's on the terrorists for both the european union and for the united states if the p.k. is receiving weapons from the germans then i think we are about to repeat a major mistake of arming once again the wrong side here in the u.k. fears have been growing since soldier lee rigby was slaughtered in london now where the beheading of an american journalist by
a suspected brits is to her. and revelations that one of these lawmakers they he financier's was the director of a muslim faith school in the city of birmingham brought so want to feel safe and they want the government to take drastic measures it is apparent that people who declare allegiance elsewhere able to return to the united kingdom and pose a threat to our national security we're clear in principle that what we need is a targeted discretionary power to allow us to exclude british nationals from the u.k. cameron spline tearing up passports from door nationals and banning fighters from returning home from foreign conflicts according to you gov two thirds of british people support taking away citizenship from known radicals although it's claimed that hasn't worked before two thousand and fourteen terrorism may started confiscating passports using the war. so they've been doing this exact measure they're talking about for an extended period of time where they in many many cases
but they we and they bring out is now legislation so that they can look like they're being proactive against the isis issue when really they're just trying failed policies world leaders seemed caught off guard by increasingly militarized and the well funded islamic state jihad this who are stealing a march in syria while abroad politicians shift nervously to avoid sending their soldiers back into the middle east but delays and in the size of this could ignite the time bomb that will bring the terrorists to them marina cost of a reporter from london for artsy. well the flow of jihadi volunteers from the e.u. has sparked some radical ideas from western officials the mayor of london has even proposed labeling anyone who travels to iraq and syria without telling authorities as a terrorist as until they prove their innocence the idea found little support though with more than half of those surveyed saying no to the plan political and social commentator mohammedans are believes only
a change in foreign policy will help matters firstly the fact that we have this return of control orders and he claims i think but before you can we get to that stage people are wondering how when somebody is returning from syria or from the middle east are we going to assess whether they've been involved in any kind of radicalization any kind of terrorism or have in fact been fighting as to how do you think the problem has been that our. policy on how to radicalization counter extremism has sensibly failed many failed to intercept the failed around seven seven it's continued to fail seeing people who are under surveillance going overseas to fight as they see it in an ideological in an intellectual or spiritual you have overseas so we had to have a domestic policy. center at the home office which is mired in control of c. well with tensions in gaza still haya we look at the plight of palestinians as they face years or rebuilding after israel's military crackdown not coming up after the
short break. differently here in syria now many of the members of congress of both parties who have gone to syria in recent months have said they believe he's a reformer to make clear mr president the senate which is diddy's time for him to get. stability and peace to syria is going to be most of the stuff to. play. well told you my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports i'm likely to put in the know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month please save it please or carry out
a car is on the docket no god there they go no more weasel words when you made a direct question to me prepared for a chase when you run should be ready for a. printout of speech and a little down to freedom to cost. cuts . there's a media leave though so we leave that maybe. the scene motion secure the play your part of the musical. where shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you
deserve answers from. politics only are to. laugh and play and every so after world war i want a bunch of european countries just jump in the middle east and draw a line on the map and say all these are the new countries going to care about this trick culture well last august twenty fourth and you end up with islamic state or isis. i'm happy martin the stories we cover here are not going on here in iraq other big story the extreme mad life and talk there's a reason they don't want to. portray that we should be completely out and let's break the set.

their country. now this is the first interview that george galloway gave after being attacked in london apparently for his comments on israel he shared the story with a nice. i was in the street around seven thirty seven thirty five in the evening it was broad daylight out of nowhere dressed in israel defense force short complete with the logo came a man charging up me cursing and swearing and shouting. support for israel and opposition to my views on israel and then a torrent of punches and kicks the man was a pro israel fanatic. his book the art of mourning in his words he would like to cut my throat. and saw a man who says it like to cut your throat and then dresses for the occasional in an

hundred sixty two stories bill made space history by spending over twenty five hours in orbit and making it back home alive the first creatures ever sent outside the earth's atmosphere and for such a long time to be for them though dozens of dogs took part in soviet spaceflight experiments and i can tell you without them the u.s.s.r. would have never been able to send the first man into orbit pioneering which is daisy and for instance became the first to reach the upper levels of the earth's atmosphere but they're a twenty minute flight was rough extreme turbulence and zero gravity but they landed safely and alive wasn't so lucky the vehicle decompressed and the animals suffocated but it's mainly because of that incident that space suits were introduced and that led to the first canine spacewalk lisa became the first live animal ever to float outside a craft in a space suit she came back alive and well and gave birth to some healthy puppies to most cruise ship had an extra twist her landing pad got lost in
a storm scientists took two days to find it because a herdsman stall her colored parachute dog was ok though but the breakthrough in space came with like her mission is also probably the saddest she became the first ever animal to get into orbit but stressed and overheating meant she died a few hours into the flight but let me tell you the scientists involved including the head of the soviet space program took these dogs to heart and cherish them as spent so it was a brief adventure for some of the man's best friends led to some giant leaps for mankind. now to something else that is out of this world and watching this video in my finger this name base being built on earth but having a fair is the construction of a brand new headquarters for a u.s. tech giant had online who owns the space age building. plus a kurdish oil tanker i've been missing for days is located by satellite of the

military intervention bureaucratic structure and due to corruption in the political and civil and military group to see the democratic institutions cleaned up and flourish and that has actually we couldn't do pretty practice is what we see in the recent days that is actually a manifestation of people's lack of confidence into pretty practice is a nearly a recently more recently elected government as has been put into use to situation which are called actually do any good to the democratic side. this is just a rather me fast dictated military intervention so yes the reason warning sign did you used a lot of concern to. be able to sustain. these more world news now starting in somalia where the u.s. military has carried out
a counterterrorism operation against al shabaab militants the pentagon gave no further details about the time destine operation and didn't say if it was successful local media reports suggest u.s. drones fired missiles near a militant stronghold african and somali forces have regained several towns this year the al qaeda linked groups still hold large areas of the country. staff are liberia's largest hospital have gone on strike demanding better pay and proper equipment to deal with the outbreak nurses are refusing to return to work until they're supplied with protective suits health workers also protested in sierra leone in guinea meanwhile a suspected case was reported in sweden the first case of the deadly virus was confirmed in senegal last week almost fifteen hundred deaths have been recorded since the outbreak across west africa you know. memorial services continue in beslan in southern russia marking ten years since a terrorist attack on a school there throughout the night candles were lit in remembrance of the more

most natural. now if you find yourself heading to berlin anytime soon you might want to travel light or get a helping hand to carry your luggage because locals in the german capital are demanding a ban on the use of suitcases with wheels saying this kind of baggage robs them of sleep peacher all of our explains. every year thousands of tourists flock here to the german capital billions reputation as a cool destination for a city break has seen those numbers increase along with the tourists comes the luggage and one type of luggage in particular is causing consternation in some of the neighborhoods suitcases on wheels combined with cobbled streets has resulted in local residents complaining about the noise late at night and early in the morning in fact there's been so many complaints that the mayor of the region of berlin has
actually said the bag should be bombed out right that's not something the tourists themselves particularly agree with. i cannot carry heavy items and it would be impossible for me to travel the twenty kilograms suitcase without wheels my my opinion it's stupid idea but i don't know all the people who live in quotes back problems they have another opinion and so it's their decision but i think one should go through but. i think it's an overreaction it would make no sense to suggest quite so we should be the streets with this new the surface perhaps other possibilities should be looked at first before making this long at times tempers flared over this issue we've seen some graffiti around the city that say things like you are not and even as far as the tourists whether they like them or not burley needs the tourism industry and invariably those tourists come with suitcases
