advancing against islamic state in the iraqi city of tal afar thousands of civilians are being displaced they say they're forced to flee from both coalition bombs and the threat posed by terrorists the situation in the city has the to rated it dramatically causing humanitarian organizations to draw comparisons to the devastation witnessed in mosul. we were in from the shelling from we left and the people from islamic state. with. our children a sick we're stranded here without saying there is no fresh water and some of the aid workers have been hit but. this is my son he is suffering we have no
electricity. or is the latest objective in the u.s. backed war on islamic states it comes off the recapture of mosul. left much of the city in ruins over the operation to liberate. control for three years now little to ease the suffering of civilians there. has more. but it is the new ground zero in iraq on the one hand you have a massive formation of iraqi forces backed by u.s. led coalition. forces. trenched in the area for three years in the middle of that you have desperate civilians and it isn't an easy choice for them staying. being used as human shields by. being killed by the coalition air strike or make a run for it bravely. in the hope that you get out
it isn't an easy choice. we are hungry. we need food and water yesterday we get contaminated water even the animals drink it we're living in terrible conditions the u.n. fear for civilians in. suffering that the joy and the dead you danger of the face but getting away from isis may only be the first part of the journey. plenty more obstacles to go if you travel throughout iraq it's very heavily militarized the numerous checkpoints on magic transport routes to get through those checkpoints you need documentation if you don't have it or if you have the wrong kind of documentation you are prevented from moving further on the people who fled to understand it being prevented from going into east mosul and settling there and
also coming into the couldst. bill and other places in kurdistan way that displacement camps when it comes to refugees there's a sense of paranoia here soldier manning the checkpoint and seeing refugees approaching him. a real refugee from an infiltrator were a suicide bomber who's just trying to get close to blow his vest so the security precautions are absolutely necessary but they don't make the lives of refugees in the. operation deliberate. less than a week old and while it is much smaller we can only hope it doesn't end like mosul a city in ruins thousands dead more. and with nobody to hold accountable. according to the u.n. thousand civilians remain trapped in the city basic necessities including food and
medicine. unicef has been raising the alarm over mass to splay some of caused by the fighting in the country according to the agency more than a million people half of them children were displaced as a result of the u.s. backed mosul operation alone the major concern is focused on tal afar where thousands have been forced to flee and more are expected to leave us the operation intensifies according update on the situation from unicef's representative in iraq walid. what we know so far of. the operation that's happening in. about thirty thousand people have already fled and between twenty to forty thousand people still remain with humanitarian situation and nobody actually knows exactly how many people are inside but what we know is the condition of the people that are living in there is not something that is it's considered good.
of food and water and other necessities are running short unicef and protection partners together had been addressing the issues of and combine it and separated children ten percent or close to ten percent of those are children that that company and i can many means they're coming in to be mustering going son comes with no buttons and with the nor one with them. the submerged belgian authorities contacted their spanish counterparts last year amid concerns that a mom who's suspected of masterminding last week's twin atrocities in spain may have had terror links is claimed spanish police at the time that i had the mom had any connection to terrorism or the main focus of attention now is of course on the small spanish town of you can see it disappears south of the french border it's where the modern question preached in the local mosque and it's also where all the members of the terrorist cell grew up last week they carried out twin robbing
attacks in barcelona and also the result of just on the spanish coast here that left fifteen people dead and i came just a day after what was believed to be the bomb making factory in alkan are just a bit further south on the coast was destroyed in an explosion of these pieces all over traveled to the pole to find the homes of the suspects and speak to locals who have known them since childhood. radicalizing force that it is the guy in the rock in borneo police now believe the ripple was at the center of the plot. the small spanish town took away in the foothills of the pyrenees is hardly what you think of as a hotbed of islamic terrorism but it was here in the fall that the terrorist cell which attacked balsa lonna recruited were indoctrinated and radicalized eventually going on to carry out their deadly mission.
was. but it was here that the terrorists that rammed his truck into crowds of people in wasilla alone lived. the twenty two year old moroccan was gunned down on monday following eight four day manhunt by authorities was the hour were. local people here say they believe he lived within their community. they play football together on the beach nearby with other kids from the neighborhood they were brought up here. of course the payments not the behind will happen round here we can believe it the seem to be very nice people who want it to be really cold running around but it's just they came out after the box
a little bit time and they also i think the cell melted into a full society attending the local high school and being a fixture on local football fields so how did say seemingly quiet group of quiet teenage is a quiet town and is part of a jihad to sell. the answers to that many are looking towards the mosque that they attended it's here that they're understood to have attended prayers led by our society who's been accused of being the ringmaster behind this terrorist cell the authorities pointed the finger at him and now that's being reiterated by some of those accused of being part of the cell have appeared in court but who is. what do we know about the thirty year old moroccan national we know that he had a criminal past in front back in twenty ten he was sent to prison here in spain for
his part in a drug smuggling operation and it's in jail where he's understood to have become radicalized in fact he's believed to have spent time with those who plotted and carried out the madrid bombings we also know that back in twenty sixteen he spent time in belgium around the time of the bombings on the metro on the airports in brussels. he is believed to have been killed it was announced by authorities that his d.n.a. was found at the site of a bomb making factory did exploded in at the moment the authorities are writing that off as that his own potential weapons of death course him out in the end. as the investigation continues arrests continue to be made including that of the owner of an internet cafe that suspected members of the terrorist cell and no into
a frequent it begs the question just how many of those small tranquil communities like this could potentially be harboring fatal terrorist cells peter all of a r.t. . i'm joined now by philip munir he's in the studio visiting moscow thanks for joining us today so good to have you on the program. not just the jungle club if i can start with that that was cleared some time ago was that now when i was actually in cali a few months ago it did seem pretty pretty empty certain nothing left of what was once a very big what's the situation like now there because migrants are still trying to are still trying to reach the u.k. through cali although that's still very much a travel point so what's the situation there like we have now. five hundred migrants. and the situation is no comparison to what it was before
october sixteenth last year before the comp was cleared but so. the situation is becoming again a bit hard nothing up in the city center nothing at all it's couple of miles away but it comes back very difficult we had at the beginning of the week again some riots between africans and africans about two hundred migrants fighting once again to the other. so we really need those people to be. moved away from. the produce the president said no migrant in cali we want now the new president mr marquand to say the same and knocked to say we can't have the cali citizens comte accept and. more a situation as we've known before if only if even if only now they are five hundred the situation is becoming hard again and we don't own that anymore in cali and i
mean how is the authorities coping with the moderates that are still in the town and saying it's becoming more hard are you anticipating an. influx of more moderates coming in over the next year of course the mayor of l.a. . refuse you probably heard that we were sent to court by associations we lost when i say we state department and city but we are refusing us as a city to fit any kind of facility why the home office minister created two new centers for four migrants so facilities are existing in after least those two centers migrants must go it's not to say would you like to go would you accept no they must go in those centers there is no way for the city to accept any kind of facility because we know that as soon as something's created in cali or in the callier area more migrants are coming there was nothing at all we know of about five hundred migrants. state is fitting so water distribution points toward
its search for the migrants will stand again around those points and more migrants will come and on top of that some associations i claiming more and more and more you do more you've got to give so they must go to different centers if they want to claim they can so on are not claiming nothing at all except when maybe they want to go to england england is refusing them what do we do with them it's up to the french government to make the decision and you have some will not be entitle to claim them such as africans for example about two hundred africans they must be sent back to their countries and it is for the french ministers to argue with the african governments and the afghan embassy in france because you need to some paperwork to stand but some people they must force them force the authorities are going to thirty's to take their people back you mentioned that the afghans have to
be sent back because they're asylum applications will be rejected but i mean afghanistan is a many people will say a very dangerous war torn country i mean surely there's a question of morality here as well is it safe sending these people back to a country where likelihood of death or injury kidnapped set or is very high it's the case but officially for the for france anyway. afghan afghanistan is not in war anymore so they are not entitle to claim massive i'm. really here i understand what you're saying they're considering it can be done but it can be dangerous anywhere in the world we've got to accept all the people saying it can be dangerous in their country. so i think you need to nations i've got to deal with it as well to really say and consider where it stands us where it's not the hundreds in any case for
france afghan i've got to go back and like to turn to the question of see the terror attacks in spain recently the double carjacks in and boss and can brutal they were perpetrated by suspects of moral code origin as were other terror attacks in europe as well why people have backups come in claiming asylum as well how much of a concern do you think is the issue of radicalized refugees committing these acts it's not only with the terrorist attacks it's not only we have the case in france where some people were born in born in france. after the decided to radicalize in and this and that so we're i think we really need. a central office european office for intelligence dedicated on that. i know there is in europe. project about it but it's not only projects we need we need to work on that on even if they are born in france or spain or whatever born in europe once
they go in the country to learn how to create a tax. they must be. kept away from europe and they must stay in this in these countries it's not to decide whether they come back and we treat them differently and we found them to santa is. to protect people that set know they must be probated to come back and we need intelligence a real european intelligence service to work on that nobody in europe whatever they are migrants or not and nobody in europe can say i'm safe in my country. nobody's safe in our country that's of course a key part of discourse now in the media that no country is safe for the first one ever in finland in barcelona which is an unusual target do you think the terrorists are succeeding in spreading fear and panic and that feeling of real disconcerts among europeans or are people standing firmly in resolutely i would say both
it's not an answer but you really know today their strategy if any. i don't know if somebody is. he didn't somewhere or i did seize these mentality of a project or if somebody wakes up in the morning and say well i will do an attack today nobody knows this is where we really need intelligence. we know in france for example you've got people. what they call fish s. . those people must be much more controlled it's not only to say we know one day per ops they could know those people are known because off. some ideas they have they must be much more controlled. again nobody knows
who tomorrow could do an attack a terrorist attack. nobody knows in the name of who could be and it could be done in a time but intelligence from would be reinforced. and people personally i'm not trucked at all if one controlled for any kind of reason if you don't have by the ideas you can be controlled ten times a day doesn't matter but some people are known there must be much more controlled but also. in some countries. we have europe all countries have got intelligence infrared got foreign countries those must be reinforced as well so there's about cooperation here it's a real cooperation and if somebody comes from a country was the idea to creates a terrorist attack why why does it leave the country hope when he leaves his
country intelligence must know is about to leave. all right kelly deputy mayor philip community thanks for joining us here on your leg would have been very much. who has the moral lead in the u.s. these days find out just after this break. what politicians do. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. want. to go to the press it's like before you know more people are. interested always in the water. there should be. the sort of
situation is that there's concerns on the part of the four out of countries egypt saudi arabia emirates. as relates to policies of. have to be addressed to have a very adverse impact on national security and the case of material evidence exists in the face of policies that have adversely impacted create. a loss of life in egypt this is a. situation. welcome back to the program critics are claiming america's moral compass has lost direction on the donald trump the us media isn't really pushing the idea that it's big business leaders who now offer the best guidance and i'm open asked people in new york whether they share that view. with so much chaos and confusion these days many
americans are looking for a new source of moral guidance so who should be giving that stuff i think the founding fathers have a lot of inspiration there donald trump is the moral compass the u.n. secretary general antonio pretentious jimmy carter you like jimmy carter yes a lot of mainstream media outlets have another voice in mind the top dogs of corporate america. that's right the big boys in the boardrooms are now standing up for justice and fighting the power after charlottesville they just can't hold back any longer hate should be condemned and has no place in a country that draws its strength from our diversity and humanity prism drill missed the critical opiates unity to help bring a country together i'm the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business
these chief executives have taken the risk to speak truth to power yes truth to power and these men are just known for their good deeds j.p. morgan got caught overcharging thousands of military families for their mortgages and had predatory lending practices that specifically targeted black and hispanic people walmart is known to get their clothes from sweat shops in bangladesh where the workers get paid fourteen cents an hour oh and over here they've been caught paying out millions of dollars in bribes in order to get building permits and they're in walkers pepsi co they've been caught with discrimination in hiring practices and been forced to pay out millions of dollars in settlements and who can forget their oh so classy advertisement featuring police brutality protests a pepsi are they a good moral company. i mean personally i don't think their products more heidi i don't think feeding sugar to you know americans in the quantities. overall they're
dependent on their products that are maybe not good for. not good for your house. no no if you want to do you think j.p. morgan the banking firm is a good moral compass for america i don't really trust any banking institutions don't think that a corporation should be morally reprehensible what about wal-mart do you think they're a good moral compass for america probably too big or too big of a monopoly when you hear people's experience it will not be twenty inside it doesn't seem so they employ a lot of people minimum wage laws are what they are perhaps it isn't just a burning passion for social justice in the wall street sweets but rather that they've discovered that social justice is a great marketing strategy caleb oppen artsy new york a soulful i'll go back with more global headlines in the next cough now. it's.
already. here's what people have been saying about redacted in the us actually just the long lost of the only show i go out of my way to. the really packs a punch oh yeah john all over a party america is going to see we are apparently better than two thousand and six and see people you never heard of love redacted tonight not the president of the
world bank they. were going to. send us an e-mail what is it when the swiss national bank to such a bank and other such all banks on behalf of governments are now the biggest owners of stocks when japan is the biggest holder of exchange traded funds that's called nationalization of socialism and combined with the central bank the polling bureau that is fixing the price of money it's not a free market for money and combined with purchase of open house it's nationalizing those assets that's called me an ism that's nationalism that's why this is a global economy is shrinking because these social banks amount to what danny blanchflower power says they're not operating in ways to stoke free markets. all.
oh and welcome to all the part of the trumpet in this situation may be unconventional in many ways but like most its recent predecessors it also wants to try it sound at mediating palestinian conflict the u.s. delegation allowed by the president's advisor and son in law. is expected in the region this week the stops in a number of arab capitals including cairo is the current us administration. to take on the challenge like this especially given the divisions at home well to discuss that i'm now joined by foreign minister of egypt. minister it's great to see in moscow thank you the last time we had a chance to talk to you was in spring of two thousand and sixteen in the final years of the obama administration when the world already seems like
a pretty messy place judging from your vantage point in cairo how has the situation in the wall changed. well we certainly have. continued to strive to meet the various challenges both regionally and internationally changing and the administration the states of course is an important juncture with new policies in place and we seek to cooperate well through the united states with the russian federation with our partners in europe to create the necessary stability to regain and especially not part of the world the stability that has been moved by the events of the two thousand and eleven the situation and conditions in iraq in yemen in syria have all had very negative impact on the area. the return to the state institutions that can effectively create stability provide for the needs of the people.
