it's a joy to beatrice with what before three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of my. first sip. headlines on r.t. international north korea successful hydrogen bomb. technology in the country's northeast. us security services ruptures diplomatic outposts in san francisco and washington after they were shot down on the state department's orders russia. has a clear violation of international. an example you need to match relations it's in the legal take on the russian group. who haven't been expecting wanted guests. and the state leaves behind
a booby trap. driven out of the studio by the iraqi army but here on this program we'll have an exclusive report from the ground. stories of the week the top headlines today welcome to the weekly here on r.t. international. north korea has successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test this according to the country's state television it came off to an earthquake measuring around six on the richter scale was detected in the country it took place in a northeastern province bordering china and russia and was felt in both of those countries let's cross live to china and get more details from. kate it's been a year since the last nuclear test how is the world reacting this time.
hello there henri yes there's been widespread condemnation coming in from russia and china as well because this move comes in violation of the u.n. security council resolution. and if you said it's been a year since the last test well let's recap on some of the more recent events that we've been seeing just ahead of that new testing that we heard about north korea announced to their central news agency that the country had developed an advanced hydrogen bomb and that the country's leader himself when john had been there to personally inspected this was very briefly then followed by that earthquake that you described six point three on the richter scale in the northeast of the country that was felt in china under russia in the countries that border it as well now what north korea then said is that they've developed a particular type of warhead that's been designed so we can be on an intercontinental ballistic missile the likes of which was tested last tuesday as it flew over japan well as you said it's been
a year now since the last testing it is the first of president trumps presidency and he is saying that effectively off about last test that went over japan saying that now all options are on the table strong language he was using strong rhetoric that's been that's been a trademark effectively of the escalations all these tensions in the korean peninsula. north korea better get their act together or they're going to be trouble like your day shouldn't ever have been in trouble in this world. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen. when the means on the u.s. and south korea have been practicing widespread military drills also japanese fighter planes have also been going overhead as well much to the annoyance of p.r. young and since this latest testing south korea has also responded with some very
strong language. has already decided to discuss with the u.s. the deployment of the most powerful strategic assets of the american military that would enable us to neutralize north korea's nuclear facility and missiles and show us. capabilities. they believe the only way to solve the problems on the. dialogue. around the. president. the russian foreign ministry has demanded the return of us diplomatic properties in the united states which were closed. after washington's order a more. deeply hostile aimed at undermining u.s.
russia relations for more. where security forces have conducted searches in the facilities that we do have is a number of videos to show the facility in san francisco when the inspection took place and you can see from one of the videos that the security officials were actually searching the apartments for the residence still in there the trade facility in washington is also being searched but we have had some reactions and the head of the trade commission has told journalists that he feels that the search is all a take a. thing in example you need a national relations it's an illegal takeover of russian corporate she's. going to be expecting so she wanted. two pm local time the u.s. doesn't think we have to call magic immunity anymore there's also been other reactions and we had reaction from the russian foreign ministry the spokes person there has slammed the search and i'll read this out to you as
a diabolical circus that's illegal and pointless and we just have to take note here that the diplomats and their families only had two days to vacate their properties there now if we look at the reasons the u.s. has stated that this is a response to russia's decision to reduce the size of the u.s. mission in russia back in july twenty seventh teen we've also had a reaction from the russian foreign minister himself so good i've spoken out about the decision to close the facilities is also said that russia is not the instigator of these moves measures or this. story was not russia it was started by the u.s. administration with the only purpose of u.s. relations concerning the u.s. conflict which is going through always been friendly towards the american people and we're still open to constructive relationships but as you know it takes two to tango. american partners or breakdancing on their own time all the time so as you
can see the relations between the u.s. and russia are still pretty tense. well the u.s. state department says the searchers are legal claiming diplomatic immunity is revoked following any closure however the vienna convention states immunity remains in place until diplomatic staff leave the country vienna convention on diplomatic relations article twenty two point one the premises of the mission shall be inviolable the agents of the receiving states may not enter them except with the consent of the head of the mission. school thirty nine point two when the functions of a person enjoying privileges and immunities have come to an end such privileges and immunities should normally cease at the moment when he leaves the country so here's a reminder of how it all started for example it was a back in december that then president barack obama expelled thirty five russian diplomats over alleged election. deciding not to respond in kind on the same day president vladimir putin instead invited children of u.s.
diplomats in russia to come to a new year party at the kremlin and in july after the u.s. house of representatives overwhelmingly passed a new anti russia sanctions bill moscow cut the u.s. diplomatic presence in russia to the same level as in america and that led to extend sanctions and analysts told us the raid is a clear violation of international law. i think it's national lays down very clearly that the one nine hundred sixty one fianna convention of to plastic relations says that any diplomatic affiliated premises nifong country. and any incursion on that territory is an attack on the country this is hosting that. diplomatic mission so this is breach of international law that there is some sort of meaningless parade of power by raising america the big issue here is now that this creates
a bad precedent because with this event taking place now in the united states other countries may follow against embassies with which they don't have good relations with this is a collapse of the international diplomatic system by what the americans and the u.s. government is trying to do. the iraqi government has declared it a former islamic state stronghold city of tal afar liberated however little remains of the city aside from booby traps left by terrorists. has filed this exclusive report from the ground. then when the islamiyah bahia the islamic state will remain you'll find. that plastered whenever the bridges and buildings entitle frog iraq he sent his haven't yet gotten around to covering them up what with being busy fighting. was. why i know you didn't
look at them for what i said it's an evo hind plenty of surprises booby traps everywhere in thailand frog they have to turn the city into a sap as night and come in here we were ruined multiple times not to touch anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we know. these. could be explosives booby traps bradman's behind the times even in the right has. been one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa and exploded and along with the house they had booby trapped the sofa another example they were explosive to light switches when you turn on their lights the house explodes they were bombs into refrigerators and even the door handles when you open the door and explodes. i've just come back from tel afar and you can
didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. do all we can to disarm everything but there is only so much we can do some house will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for does but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i still couldn't get the car bomb out oh engineers found it and dismantled it if it had been used it would have done as great damage they disarm the explosive canisters and detonated them in a controlled explosion but it's strange isis folded. almost too quickly. there is evidence that around four hundred families of isis fighters were allowed to leave on august twenty fifth in an unspecified direction the rumor
among iraqi troops is that as many as two thousand isis fighters have been given safe passage out of. into syria again this is a rumor and we card confirm it but it would explain the unexpected easy fight iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone saying would still far too dangerous but having spent some time here in the suburbs we haven't seen a single civilian most of them ran when the opportunity presented itself as the battle began braving the months in the desert in order to get away before of the iraqi military in the u.s. led to release and brits to their might file a fraud of them through and through combat a question of how matter of tal afar there be left to come back to more i guys do
you have from iraq. the u.s. led coalition against islamic state confirmed this week another sixty one civilian deaths are likely to have been caused by air and artillery strikes in both iraq and syria in the month of july the coalition completed the assessment of thirty seven reports resulting in sixty one unintentional civilian deaths the coalition assesses that sit is more likely than not at least six hundred eighty five civilians have been unintentionally killed by coalition strikes since the start of operation inherent resolve. meanwhile active military operations are the back door carried out by the u.s. continue in both countries though humanitarian organizations have been raising the alarm over the impact on innocent lives but america's defense secretary believes locals understand the reason coalition forces are fighting there. we are the good guys. and people on
a battlefield know the difference. i saw with my own eyes three houses destroyed and they're striking isis fighters first went there and run away then the jets bombed where they were seventeen civilians were killed they would go on the roofs of people's houses and store shooting they wouldn't let people live in this later. with all the civilians still inside. one of the planes bombed us heavily this happened in downtown bend around i still slaughtering people many were killed and houses were destroyed . in shelling targets civilians civilians four story houses full of people all over the neighborhood certainly many have been killed among the my cousin he died in iraq in an airstrike the u.n. estimates that it's an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq every day the situation in the syrian city of raka mentioned there is of particular
concern to the u.n. thousands of civilians are still trapped between i suppose cruelty and tens coalition strikes or nicholas davies who's written extensively on the invasion of iraq suggests the number of civilian deaths there and in neighboring syria much higher than reported. what is coming from the coalition are not in fact estimates total civilian casualties what they are is a very limited number of individual incidents that have been reported and so therefore the u.s. so authorities have had to address them and conduct some sort of investigation and this is this is very very limited this is the way the u.s. has conducted warfare through out its so-called war on terror and it is relied on the media. to accept these completely
case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around corporate cooperation from washington to washington to meet. the. voters elected to business to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. sunday afternoon here in moscow thanks for joining us hundreds of people took to the streets of paris on wednesday to protest against president new labor law designed in part to make it easier for companies to hire and fire workers our correspondent charlotte due pinsky was at the scene. but
the demonstrators have come out again in front to show how unhappy they are with emanuel not once one perform the working code they have described emmanuel my own as being a man who only supports business i once took the rights of look at this is what people have been saying to us and said that keeping small talk is a tax work and workers were against it because it has no a show now and we can share the work. represents the big boss says he wants to cut the services social protections and everything achieved by workers agree with something. about ideology to be able to sign. what in fact he wants to get rid of employee protections all together it's a big attack of the hierarchy deals will now take over those are some of the
reasons why the demonstrators hate feel so passionately against these reforms to the working code but not everybody is unhappy with the plans to reform the working code take it in front of forms that suggest it will mean that in four years we'll have more ability to hire and fire people to negotiate over salary in terms of additional hours that people work and that's why the head of the employers federation has actually come out not just in support of this reform but is actually emanuel not going to go all in when he introduces that working reform some people have described this as being a bellwether for mcallen's presidency because this is his first major attempt to pass a major piece of legislation in front but recesses have failed to mange p.c. . will be able despite his continuing plunging popularity in the public in the
polls to. able to pressure this reform through and to appease the french people. see paris. moves to reshape the economy anger is rising among the french people just the latest polls are showing three months into his term already less than approve of his policies now at the very same time though in their presidencies predecessor nicolas sarkozy he had sixty nine percent support even a francois all along who became known as mr unpopular he had fifty four. despite those findings a government spokesman claims the figures can be ignored macro will quote transform the country. people in paris about the president's apparent fall from grace. so it doesn't surprise me that what he's doing is making human popular nobody supports his proposal for extending working hours. if the french people are too closed
minded when it comes to changing benefit reform so it's not surprising that his ratings of foreign. very rare for presidents popularity to increase so i'm not too surprised we need to give him time to get things done for one direction so we need to live with that we spoke to be editor in chief of the popular magazine who believes character is grating with the voters. in this country in the spirit of race maybe not so surprising everybody. will find a solution let me tell. you he's ready to fight polish prime minister said this remark was a. strike because what he said. what he said maybe later he's out of. this. criticized. racist something which is totally much a joke but it will make you say things wrong stuff credible she said for example
the french all want to see that they were. constant bombing and endless civilian casualties have become the norm in yemen and the beginning of this week saw hundreds of locals gathering near the country's capital to mourn the victims of last week's saudi led attack on a hotel that killed sixty three hundreds of locals have also returned to the scene of the strike to protest riyadh's continued bombing of yemen the strike hit the hotel ten days ago and aside from the. dead more than a dozen people were also injured relatives of the victims are now demanding justice . can read about on your own they were just workers trying to make a living and they were targeted by warplane the yemeni people want to show their anger at this crime committed against them. to my sons' were martyred by the saudi grocers they were farmers they had nothing to do with the war i appealed to the
international community to the united nations to punish those who committed this crime no one does or not would demand that the international community and the united nations which is remaining silent find a solution for these disparate people. in another incident fourteen people were killed when a saudi led strike hit a residential building in the fog neighborhood the destruction brought down an entire apartment block a young girl was the only survivor from one family and she is now being treated in hospital i warning you may find the following images disturbing. they know. fame to get you to date. and if you get a scarce guess how to get away and she is the only child who survived the airstrikes that hit the house and at san all of her family died her father mother and siblings. their parish.
we found multiple fractures in her left cheek as well as cracks in the bone round her eye and across her forehead. the saudi led coalition said the bombing of the residential area was a quote technical mistake we spoke with a human rights activist about the diet situation in yemen. they have to be held responsible under international law unfortunately what we have is the power of the international politics that is supporting the saudi led coalition that is causing untold amounts of these war crimes secretly council is dominated by two prominent members who are the ones who are selling the weapons to the saudi regime and that is where the main obstacle lies unfortunately and every move to commission an international investigation you will find that these two countries britain and the
u.s. do everything they can to obstruct to that the saudi regime along with all those who are assisting them in this unfortunate creation of a manmade catastrophe in the yemen have to be tried for war crimes sooner or later . this is art international thanks for sharing your sunday with us here for the weekly on this channel my colleague on the fama here manning the helmet about often .
welcome to worlds apart of the tomahawk missiles launched by two american destroyers in syria last week definitely had a bombshell in fact on global politics but they didn't change the balance of power on the ground did that strike represent a pitch for a new american strategy in the region or just a publicity stunt for the new administration well to discuss that i'm not joined by commander keke lippold former commanding officer of the u.s. navy destroyer u.s.s. cole commander it's great to have you on the show thank you very much for your time well thank you for having me on today a pleasure to be here now contrary to the expectations the news cycle here in
moscow today was rather slow the u.s. secretary of state the rex tillerson already had he's bidding with his russian counterpart sergei lavrov but it's still unclear at this point he's going to miss a bit of the russian president do you expect anything substantial to come out of his russia visit. i actually do i think the despite the obviously tense introduction that. secretary teller hsan and lavrov had where there was no eye contact made on purpose by secretary lavrov the two of them said down and once the initial posturing for the cameras was all said and done the people that didn't really need to be in the meeting left and then the governments could sit down and start getting down to the real facts the real basis and start discussing what about the chemical attack one of the objectives of each country both in syria and for the region and so i think that there was some very good discussions these had to take place following these strikes to not do them what i think
a been more detrimental to both country's interests in the region while commander on the eve of this meeting the russian official said that di expect ations for a fairly modest they just want to simply understand where they trumpet ministration stands on a range of middle eastern issues and i wonder if you think that they trumpet this nation if south knows about its stance i think they do i think in this case when you look at it one of the things that came through very very clear was while the previous administration under president obama put that red line out there and then never did anything of substance to enforce it to the trump administration felt that the use of chemical weapons in clear violation of international law merited a swift and forceful response in my opinion it was forced it was proportional it was appropriate and it's done i think it hopefully send a signal to the assad regime that this will not be tolerated anymore mr de paulo the bombing.
