there the latest developments and look back what's been happening over the last seven days to you watching weekly here on r.t. international now north korean state television has announced that the country has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb came after an earthquake measuring around six on the richter scale was detected in north korea it took place in the country's northeastern province and was felt in neighboring china and russia don't trump has reacted to north korea's latest nuclear test saying the country continues to be hostile and dangerous to the u.s. on the skatepark free reports now from china. but it's stormy here in china and the certainly a storm seems to be bringing over the korean peninsula as well u.s. president john walsh trump has tweeted his response to the latest nuclear test by north korea north korea has conducted a major nuclear test their words and actions can. knew to be very hostile and
dangerous to the united states he goes on to say north korea is a robot nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to china which is trying to help but with little success well this is north korea's first nuclear test during the trumpet ministration the last one came in september twenty sixth and here's some of the rhetoric from president trump that preceded the latest test north korea better get their act together or they're going to be trouble like your day shouldn't ever have been a trouble in this world. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe me they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen for me while donald trump is sends another tweet he says that south korea responding as i have told them that their talk of appeasement with north korea will not work they only understand one thing meanwhile the u.s. down south korea have been carrying out military drills across the peninsula and
japanese fighter planes have also been flying overhead much to the annoyance of p.r.n. young and south korea has also stratton's escalation. to purchase that we decided to discuss with the us 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 sure we'll strike capability. for me while china and russia have both condemned the latest nuclear test but moscow is emphasizing that the time is now for negotiations and a return to dialogue rather than military escalation of the kremlin believes that the only way forward is through dialogue talking about the situation in korea as opposed to anything else. partridge there we discussed the escalation of tensions within dependent age a strategist andrew k.p. and he believes that the u.s. administration's approach is partly to blame for the volatile situation on the korean peninsula. what the last korean war of course because the war would mean the
demise of the regime what we want is our own cars assurance our of the regions the ability of the united states trunk and the destruction believes that be the solution is through military means that's the only tool in the in the work kit and it hasn't proved to be successful is a lot of even warsaw and theory but i don't think it's going to solve the problem as has been demonstrated i think the time for coercion is over a got to move on to a korean peninsula stability pact involving all the countries in the region that perhaps should course make sure that there is that the elation on all sides and of course what americans to tune down not only the rhetoric but also military exercises and a lot of threats only stabilize the system. now washington is
demanding moscow sell the three diplomatic properties recently shut down by the us state department that's according to the russian foreign ministry staff were blocked from accessing the buildings of russia's conscience in san francisco and also the trade mission in washington d.c. this video in fact is from inside the trade missions premises minutes before it was closed and as you can see more or less everything had been already cleared leaving only empty shelves and corridors the diplomatic staff were given very short notice to to leave the site only thirty six hours and then san francisco searches were done conducted not only on the premises of the diplomatic site but also the apartments of staff members and their families moscow islam the move is a deeply hoffa dialect ended undermining u.s. russia relations more in this case the direction. of a. longer. what 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 president still in there the trade facility in washington is also being searched and the head of the trade commission has told journalists that. the searches. we are witnessing an example vandalism you need to match the relations it's an illegal takeover russian corporate she. would have been expecting so she would want to get . them to pm local time the u.s. doesn't think we have to magic impunity and 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 read this that 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 he's also said that russia is not the instigator of these moves measures that sanctions already was not launched by russia it was started by the u.s. administrator surely with the only purpose of us russian relations completely u.s. we're not seeking conflict with this country we've always been friendly towards the american people and we're still open to constructive relationships but as you know it takes two to tango now it looks like our american partners are 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 does say the searches are legal claim diplomatic immunity is
revoked following any closure however the enter convention does state that immunity does remain in place until diplomatic staff have left the country. the 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. article thirty nine point two when the functions of a person enjoying privileges and immunities have come to an end such privileges and immunities shall normally cease at the moment when he leaves the country thing international lays it down very clearly the one hundred sixty one fianna convention of to class relations says that any diplomatic affiliated premises nifong country. and any incursion on that territory staff force is an attack on the country this is history not that it's a classic mission so this is the breach of the international rules 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 i guess embassies with which they don't have good relations add to this is a collapse of the international diplomatic system by what the americans and the u.s. government is trying to do. in other news this week the iraqi government declared the former islamic state stronghold city of tal afar liberated however little does remain off the city aside from the many booby traps left by the terrorists parties murder gas they have sent this exclusive report. then the islamiya by 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. what. one lawyer doesn't want them to what i says sure to leave behind plenty of surprises booby traps every red intel a frog they have ten the city interests up as night and coming here we were bloomed multiple times not to touch anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we know beyond any of these. could be explosives booby traps brands behind the times even in the right switches. has been one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa and exploded and along with half 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 tell a fine you can didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. i will do all we can to disarm everything but there is only so much we can do some houses will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for those but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i still couldn't get the car bomb out our 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. iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone thing would still far too 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 was the proper began bringing them us from the present an order to get away the poor of the iraqi ministry of the u.s. led to release and. then to write. a fraud where is the facility of combat the question of how much of tal afar there be left to come back to more i guys. from iraq meanwhile the u.s. led coalition confirmed this week another sixty one civilians are likely to have been killed by its strikes in 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 result. active military operations either backed or carried out by the us continues in both countries piano tarion organizations they have been raising the alarm over the impact on innocent lives but america's defense secretary believes that locals do understand why coalition forces are fighting the. good guys munitions people on a battlefield know the difference. i saw with my own eyes three houses destroyed in an airstrike of isis fighters first went there and run away then the jets bombed where they were seventeen civilians were killed but they would go on the roofs of people's houses and start shooting they wouldn't let people live which later. with all the civilians still inside. one of the planes bombed us heavily this happened in downtown
misled went around i saw was slaughtering people many were killed and houses were destroyed. that arm of the coalition shelling targets civilians hit civilians four story houses full of people all over the neighborhood certainly many have been killed among them are cousin he died in iraq or in an airstrike the u.n. estimates that an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq every day or the situation in the syrian city of iraq and mentioned there is a particular concern to the u.n. thousands of civilians are still trapped between eyesores cruelty and intense coalition strikes authentically davies who's written extensively on the invasion of iraq suggest that the number of civilian deaths there and in neighboring syria are actually much higher than being reported. what is coming from the coalition are not in fact estimates of 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 ouch it so-called war on terror and it has relied on the media to accept these completely absurd. numbers that it puts out as a serious estimate of the numbers of civilians being killed this is you know this is this is absurd it. led coalition in yemen has killed over a dozen civilians after striking a residential complex we'll have the details after the break.
come along for the ride. welcome back to the way thousand nine hundred people took to the streets of paris some wednesday to protest against president new labor law designed to make it easier for companies to hire and fire workers. reports. out of the demonstrators have come out again in france to show how i'm happy they are with a manual that once one perform on the working code they have despised i'm on your mark on this being a man who not only supports business i once took the rights a look at this is what people have been saying to us and said that. if you tax work and workers were against it because it has no wish and we can share the work.
represents the big bosses and those who want to come public services social protections and everything achieved by workers i don't agree with that song. it's about ideology to be able to sound quirk is more easily in stop work in fact he wants to get rid of employee protections all together it's a big attack of the hierarchy corporate deals will now take over those are some. the reasons why the demonstrators here feel so passionately against these reforms to the working code but not everybody is unhappy with the plans to reform the working code here in france the use of forms that suggest it will mean. 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 a manual match point to go all in when he introduces that working before some people have described this as being a bellwether for my presidency because this is his first major time to pass a big piece of legislation here in fronts but recesses have failed you see. will be able despite this continuing plunging popularity in the polls to be able to push this reform through and to appease the french people. ahti paris because charlotte said there is much from this move to reshape the economy the latest poll show he's losing popularity you can see it's actually dropped to forty percent in just a couple of months micron spokes person however does claim the president paul quote transformed the country while other presidents have fared a lot better at the same point in their careers nicolas sarkozy had
a sixty nine percent popularity rating and france well on the on the right hand side had a popularity rating of fifty four despite being called mr unpopular meanwhile some of the accused the new french president in light of some of the things he's been saying on the world stage. we have absolutely different positions to vladimir putin i act france will not pass on anything he is ready to follow us and then we will have some progress on syria. i can't really imagine calling anyone other than himself and i figure they have different views of their political views i can't even imagine something or that would actually work i. think because.
the international stage is not really cool you know also i am the one obliged to speak to enter one every ten days. here but i made the film take i don't think it's a smart move by my i guess that's like the new thing nowadays to have no experience and thank you the good is that everything you could pick. up i know. this week the f.b.i. tonight a freedom of information request to release files relating to hillary clinton's e-mails does claim that there's a lack of public interest for such a disclosure to be made because fran santiago has the story new york attorney tyco have injury has been waiting for more than a year for the f.b.i.
to fulfill his freedom of information requests and reveal the files on hillary clinton's e-mails only to get this response you've not sufficiently demonstrated that the public's interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. well whatever the f.b.i. thinks the public certainly made its interest in the e-mails loud and clear these are the three questions that are coming out of that timeline that continue to drive the story i'm sorry when you use a private e-mail on a private server your privacy rights are out the window when you're the secretary of state of the united states of america you don't have privacy anymore she chose to do that because on her and i personally would like to know in a way reminds me of the nixon tapes shouldn't go away on the substance and voters do care about there are enough all that fuss was being made while clinton was still running for the presidency but perhaps now the emails won't be as damaging especially given that clinton insists there was nothing classified in the first let
me say that i am confident that i never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received there was nothing marked classified on my e-mails either send or receive only problem for her is that's not true it's. never sent or received in the classified information over her private e-mail was true. our investigation found that there was classified information so it was not true just weeks before the of the ice there's nothing in clinton's e-mails the public needs to know a federal judge ruled that the state department should do more to investigate its servers for clinton's messages related to the tragic been gazi attack which left several u.s. officials dead that decision was welcomed by judicial watch this major court ruling may finally result in more answers about the benghazi scandal and hillary clinton's involvement in it as we approach the attacks fifth anniversary yet still be a vi keep silent insisting there is insufficient proof of public interest to more
conditions also mentioned by the agency earlier this year they said they are ready to release the records if mrs clinton agrees to do at least have the information or passes away we go francis and jago r.t. . now in yemen fourteen people were killed. when a society led coalition strike hit a residential building in the capital sana'a the destruction brought down a whole apartment block a young girl was the only survivor from one family and she's now being treated in hospital a word of warning there you might find the upcoming images disturbing. thing to get you to date. and if you get eight get a little heat and nadia she is the only child who survived the airstrikes that hit the house a matter of all of her family died her father mother and sibling. there . we found multiple fractures in her left cheek as well as cracks in the bone
around her eye and across her forehead. well the saudi led coalition said the bombing of the residential area was in fact a technical mistake we spoke with a human rights activist about the dire 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 . i've been watching the weekly here and i see international thanks for the company tonight don't forget you can have a look at all the stories with others at aussie dot com and also our social media pages neil harvey will be here at the top of the next hour to keep you updated.
with manufactured incentives to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final. we can all middle of the room see. the real news is really. what politicians do anything to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to.
have to try to be close to see what the forty three of them or can people get. interested in the waters of our. city. this is what we discover inside the machines interrogate the donors the volunteers answer the medical questions at electronic terminals one single physical examination measuring blood pressure. this is mainly to avoid the donors fainting
while donating blood which would slow down the entire chain. not a single chair in the room is empty an endless stream of donors with no time to recover after the donation twelve hours a day seven days a week. in view of such summary checks everything is based on what people say pay donations entailed a certain risk they encourage donors to lie about their health. such compensation also attracts a high risk population that sometimes has secrets to hide. might be. a very. key. question but the basic law i can offer you this computer no no.
