good morning for me kevin i when you're at r.t. h.q. this with you are welcome to the weekly around to put the big stories of the last seven days first developments to tell you about what i'm going london on friday friday so london hit by another terror attack in which an explosion on the train injured around thirty people in the rush morning now within the last hour the metropolitan police now have confirmed that a second man is under arrest a twenty one year old in west london on saturday officers detained an eighteen year old man in connection with it an improvised explosive device went off inside that choo train in height of the rush hour eight twenty of the morning local time the explosion obviously caused panic and then a stampede a young child was among the injured islamic state claims it was behind that attack and this is it churkin it reports now from west london where this all happened. yet another terrorism related in city. in the u.k.
a twenty seventeen pandemic of terror with this now the fifth and every attack demands more security measures and public vigilance around you are you. following the van attack on westminster bridge they put up a concrete barriers to prevent a similar salt earlier this month london's metropolitan police came up with another measure to stop the vehicles targeting large crowds steal spikes road mats to be rolled out a big events but just days after the announcement london was hit by a different kind of attack the weapon this time was concealed in a simple plastic bag and bucket and left on the tube during rush hour cordoned off behind me is the area where the fifth terror related incident to shake the u.k. in recent months took place early friday morning in a train topped with commuters where a homemade device partially detonated commuters described the scene as a stampede with people running for their lives just what is lost in memory of the baby in the car with the mom a man was shot in grad run so we all piled off the train and just ran for our lives
we were literally running for our lives and i saw for a second one of that stuff people jumping over what all's well like. to transition with a beautiful golden dawn to steve jumping into over another terror attack has slipped by the authorities but the location this time has left many shocked and questioning where they go from here is the following that anybody. can do anything like that we're not taking this that way like let's take. this kind of scary as authorities investigate this latest incident to see what should and could have been done the attackers seem to be one step ahead creating a new unnerving and unpredictable norm and as you're going to london. a year ago the living with the threat of terrorism is something that london is just have to accept these days.
you won't succeed but you want to fight us we will be cowed by terrorists. you will see over the next few days the increased number of. across. the attempts to. make countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together. and. they continue to be visible patrols around manchester which include the deployment of armed officers . that is will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days no reason to be
a long. road. to be any. longer as we'll see an increased number of visible police officers. it's been another week a standoff over north korea on monday the u.n. security council passed a resolution on new sanctions after pyongyang's nuclear test earlier this month although the original draft prepared by the u.s. was negotiated to seal the deal at the end of it washington had wanted a full all oil and natural gas embargo against north korea but the final resolution imposed only a cap on the country's exports the original draft also demanded a travel ban and an asset freeze against the north korean leader but that didn't make it to the final draft either the u.s. president wasn't impressed by the compromise at the u.n.
that. we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing. not big i don't know but has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen well it's certainly disturbing to hear these words from donald trump in the aftermath of a vote at the u.n. security council that was widely perceived as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard from u.s. leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic and favorable to peace and cooperation at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harsh talking about the possibility of sanctions against russia and against china if they don't comply with the new u.n. resolution if china doesn't follow the sanctions we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the u.s.
and international dollar system and that's quite meaningful so now we have these words from trump downplaying the u.n. resolution and many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious well those hopes are starting to dampen now they're starting to be some some fear that perhaps once again we are in the danger of a global conflict or some kind of war breaking out in the crisis in the korean peninsula could be once again intensifying despite what was seen as a step forward for diplomacy and international cooperation this is just another dip on the roller coaster and saying this huge every week with the war where it goes up very high than than maybe this in conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force and it's really hard to know what to make of this yes we do have a positive that is the original u.s. draft was watered down considerably it was acceptable to the russians or the chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from pyongyang we don't
know what the next step is going to be could be the real question is. going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows both sides to step down and in my mind it's got to be something like the double three proposal that china has put forward the russians agree with but is absolutely oh i accept little to washington it seems in response to washington's calls for new sanctions north korea carried out a missile test on friday that according to the south korean military that projectile reached an altitude to seven hundred seventy kilometers and travel for nigh on four thousand kilometers before eventually falling into the sea and just let the test carried out a few weeks ago it flew right over japan triggering an alert on hokkaido island the sirens went off there people are told to brace for cover but not everyone in japan it seems felt threatened by the launch. to bring i don't feel like japan is their target as their target is the u.s. that's why the missiles are just bursting or would you prefer i don't think north
korea will drop a meter of directly on us and say. it's a missile is trough strength good because we won't have to go to school oh leave and go home we were raised joking around never taking it seriously. south korea did react to friday's missile test with a military drill near the border with the north and although the south korean president threatened pyongyang with destruction beyond recovery over the provocations he did rule out in the week stationing nuclear weapons there former u.s. congressman ron paul there told us that washington should lead the let the korean leaders resolve the crisis between themselves. why couldn't we encourage and get behind saying look south korea we encourage you to talk to north korea and see if you're going to sit down maybe united states and china could both be observers or something and to get it moved on but not for us to constantly stir up trouble by having our military confrontation by building up and having these war games what
are these war games where are they practicing you know is so unnecessary and and confrontational and it doesn't mean that if we didn't have war games that we would give up something on our defense our side has to worry about the bush doctrine which tried just to you know make it our official policy that you need to have preventive war well preemptive preventive war is aggression and that i don't lie. the french president's labor reform what should you this month was loud and clear choose there this week with a nationwide strikes and hundreds of rallies over it protests in paris to follow it with projectiles and flares being thrown. was. was. was was.
was at was. the. opponents of the labor reform say gives employers more power to negotiate conditions limits compensation for unfair dismissal emerges unions boy because in paris. one of the big newspapers here in france and i know my son's christening all of these all the biggest street protests to take place in heaven since he was elected president this year and people here are very unhappy about the labor law that he wants to implement he wants to shake up the job market and make it easier to hire and by now he thinks that. this is ultimately unemployment rate here in front. of the rates in the u.k. and germany although was we can see you say that they believe that this was the
likes of the employers' enfant i'm not really. this lower is anti social because it's reliable for workers. but. this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work doesn't give privileges in both the public in the private sectors we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement. the trust or effects eighteen million workers the majority of french workers and will significantly limit their rights to make it easier to fire people even when it's not justified monument one made a bit of a god last week. when referring to all the people that are. pre-made. but not in the way that it galvanized a lot of the protesters here in. the street.
we being built. down between for a business president who's come to power wanting to shake on the job market and the trade union. of the last of which. over the next week. there were also reports of four hundred twenty riot control officers failed to turn up to police the protests after officers were banned from marching them selves although one police union official told us actually that number is probably higher than up close to a thousand they've got their own issues with the government right now protesting on something with their families against poor working conditions they said chronic under investment will lead to greater risk taken by officers at a time when the country is still a long lasting no fight. it's a few months into macross presidency but its approval ratings are on the slide and that's unlikely to be helped by his recent description of the protesters.
i will be absolutely determined to that i will not yield in any way not to slack because you're not cynics not to extremists. we gathered here today to protest against macron and his policies which undermine the very existence of the workers from whole sphere is this movement is necessary it is the response of the french people who are protecting their rights.
but want to come including a cold to ban russia from the twenty eighteen winter olympics that came in on thursday it's divided anti doping bodies an agency chief says a lot of fuss over that will give you more details. here's what people have been saying about reject. the only show i go out of my way to. really pack them. yeah john oliver of r t america. we are apparently better than. see people you've never heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank take. it seriously send us an
e-mail international community continues li emphasize about iraq or united iraq as a slogan maybe approach the politicians but the reality on the ground iraqis are. united and he has courage to be blamed school what is happening in the rest of the direct wrong direction is that iraq has gone through. again the syrian army that has reached the euphrates river after retaking two more districts in the southeast of the dia resort city for myself earlier this week the
russian navy supporting the syrian military had a number of targets close to that city. russia's defense ministry says that command the communications posts as well as i mean mission to destroy destroyed the seven cruise missiles part of it was launched on thursday from two submarines that was stationed in the med after injuring three years of terror starvation and ongoing fighting and there is or locals are nonetheless trying now to bring some normality and peace at last to their lives. and. she's. alive each and i live. in some of the army up five now. i didn't get me in yet but they like that if daddy. i there had he lived.
in the san. school is so typical my dad. would only be. thirty. seconds before. adam of course they're going to get it. shifted or a lot of them to maybe maybe she a lulav a very measured amount of. training to study well. this is. my becky humour's no more remarks on the sort of the middle any she's. thinking. of. meanwhile the latest round of syria peace talks in kazakhstan has seen
a breakthrough agreement on the deescalation zones as the terms which could finally provide some peace in the long war ravaged country the guarantors of the peace settlement us russia iran and turkey signed a document marking the boundaries of the final deescalation zone in the ad libbed province that's up in the northwest to syria it's on top of the already implemented zones elsewhere in the country and while the still not much to be done to unite all the countries forces in the ongoing struggle against terrorism russia's special envoy for syria is cautiously optimistic. we consider the establishment of the deescalation zones to be a major milestone it has served as the light at the end of the tunnel for the syrian people and made them feel more secure it gives hope for progress in the near future. islamic militants have been recruiting foreign fighters in syria and iraq for the past few years many of those who went there to fight course with their families along with and to but with the terror group suffering
a string of major defeats now the wives and children of a large number of killed fighters have ended up in refugee camps with uncertain futures it's another big side of the story r.t. was first to talk to some of the widows of foreign extremists in an iraqi camp where hundreds of families literally a stranded location and identities are not going to be disclosed for their safety. by my. pizza chain. because it's because it is such a dumb as it is now but also to. the. people of the right to carry. the i believe. you have conceded that so. many of these things you have to make you think that with them i would like to know what. the actual legal fate of the wives of
ice or fighters isn't clear either in europe last year around six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty prosecuted for ties to jihadi is now should the wives of vice or fighters be treated in the same way as the other is the missing which is the question that's now coming up we discuss the big issue with political commentators walker and mo answer of the week . well i think the most important thing we have to do is avoid these people coming back to our countries these people have joined a terrorist organization they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't russia what we're talking about wives and children of isis fighters who have gone out to syria to iraq to kurdistan and have been found themselves inadvertently getting in broiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been in part of these atrocities let's be clear what the argument that no one saw is making is that you are an adult war have chosen to
join a terrorist organization and just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever what mr savage but you are in a terrorist organization so i want to not have you make your own piece of this they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look if you actually look a little later a name for yourself as a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out i keep talking the position of the majority of british people in my view is that they do not want terrorists back in the united kingdom they do not want the wives of terrorists back in the united kingdom but there may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i put my ear piece back in these women many of them will be innocent people the children are innocent people they didn't sign up to a terrorist organization it's not like joining a club where you sign up to get a membership form they followed their husbands into a war zone people who have not committed any wrongdoing who are no risk to the state the answer is to integrate them we have the national security apparatus in
place to be able to tackle these issues right now. for the big stories of the week there was a call to ban russia for the twenty eighty winter olympics on thursday was made by seventy national sports doping agencies but the head of the world anti doping agency hit back at an international olympic committee session. comments that have been made by the. timely work that has been done to develop the proper system. backwards or rather. it comes after seventeen national anti doping agencies including the u.k. and the u.s. called on the international olympic committee to take action against russia in a strongly worded statement the agency's accuse the i.o.c. of not doing enough to investigate allegations of russian doping adding that the reluctance to take action against russian athletes could even threaten the future
of the olympic movement itself but this statement didn't come out of nowhere it came hot off the back of revelations from was a that the ninety five out of ninety six of the russian athletes who were mentioned in that mcclaren report the now notorious mclaren report has been found clear of any wrongdoing due to a lack of sufficient evidence however there's no clear sailing for the russian athletes just yet they're going to have to wait on a final decision on whether a blanket ban on russia taking part in the olympic games will be in place or not which is due from the i.o.c. in november sports government special asylum or spoke as a brother of the things the late as calls to russia from the winter olympics are. it is based on very flawed evidence based in a whisper who know that the russian authorities can't even get the american authorities ask questions of what all he knows and what was being done so basis is
open like back on to russia however it seems that everybody is complicit in some way or shape or form so it's kind of a case of like how much how much is too much and when will it be enough for these kind of like group of seventeen very much boy is interested parties to just say ok russia prove you just keep proving that you're doing the right thing you kind of wonder what our deal to your motives for these people to be pushing and pushing and pushing because it really isn't fair it shows great consistency on their side that they're able to be you're pointing the finger at russia when their own houses are very very far from it being in order however we have to look at what's going right in russia. we'll continue to follow the story it's eleven twenty five moscow time of the morning that's the way the news panned out this week i'm kevin o. and leave you for now then with more of the images of the big stories of the week this one the ongoing tensions on the korean peninsula between the north of the south the rockets funny that which way thanks for watching have
a good weekend. guys or financial survival guide liquid those that you can convert into a cast quite easily. to keep in mind though as a tremendous place of. record. seemed wrong. just don't. get to shape out just. how to cook and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. up. years ago i traveled across the united states exploring america's deadly love
affair with the gun bad guy tried to get to one of my family members he would have . since my book was published in the year two thousand more than hoffa million americans have been killed by firearms in the us. this is a middle school we go through drills and we put ourselves some real scenarios it was interesting to see. i decided to return to the subject to track down each gun owner who i'd met and photographed those years ago. but we are not. in denmark the situation is all the more disturbing in that few associations exist to accompany overindebted people some full of tears provide free counseling but
mainly for those who live below the social minimum the others have to fend for themselves or call upon private specialized companies consultants since the two thousand a crisis such consultants have proliferated to denmark and take advantage of the situation to sell their services to people in financial difficulty. so. the more. you know i was meeting over a month later today so if my not. skinny
on my. scale horton known as yeah for paul sloan as i stated i am if you had a computer at the expanse part of the sun for what do you think it. meant to lead from a thinking system too far. off the old to the winter to him and she might have to deal with. ok. magazine. no no to her new one and it taught a bunch of her friends are beyond our culture because they're not so we did the mom . it's just a disease on this that's also the d.n.a. going to want people. to help odd jobs a woman saying goes on. feeling for. him and it was. a minute.
