for a second i'm about to jump over what falls will light up with the trees asian with a beautiful golden dawn to the steve drop it 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 flying that anybody. can do anything like that we're not taking the subway like let's take a less walk it's 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 party london. one year ago the myrrh living with the threat of terrorism is something there's just simply have to accept.
you won't succeed but you want to fight us we will become terrorists. you will see over the next few days i mean. the attempts to. make countless acts of kindness brought people closer together. and. they continue to be visible patrols around. which include the deployment of. police presence today and over the course of the next few days no reason to be
a long. road but. maybe you. will see an increased number of visible police. it's been another week of standoff over north korea on monday the u.n. security council passed a resolution on new sanctions. earlier this month although the harsh original draft prepared by the u.s. was renegotiated to seal the vote washington had wanted a full oil and natural gas some bargo against north korea but the final resolution imposed only a cap on the country's exports the original draft also demanded the travel. to the north korean leader but it didn't make it into the final draft either on the us
president was not impressed by the compromise that the united nations. 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 at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harshly about more sanctions sanctions against russia sanctions against china if china doesn't follow these 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 in the aftermath of a resolution being passed unanimously at the u.n. security council and what many saw as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard from u.s.
leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic we are not looking for war the north korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return if it agrees to stop its nuclear program it can reclaim its future if it proves it can live in peace the world will live in peace with. the latest sanctions imposed by the u.n. security council a result of the heinous u.s. attempts to isolate and suffocating tone country. place in violation of us over and that's why we totally reject and condemn these sanctions many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious while those hopes are starting to dampen the are 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 this is just another dip on the roller
coaster and saying that every week with the war where it goes up very high than that maybe this one conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force we don't know what the next step is going to be the real question is going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows us to step down. after washington's calls for a new sanctions north korea carried out a missile test on friday according to the site korean military the project reached an altitude of seven hundred seventy kilometers and traveled almost five times about distance before falling into the ocean just like the test carried out a few weeks ago the missile flew over japan triggering an alert on ok to island or not everyone in japan felt threatened by a bubble. but. i don't feel like japan is their target it's their target is the u.s. that's why the missiles are just passing north would you but i don't think north
korea will drop a meter of directly on us and say. it's a missile destroyer of strength good because we won't have to go to school. we were raised around never taking it seriously. career reacted to friday's missile test with a military drill near the border with the north and although this site korean president threatened pyongyang with quote destruction beyond recovery he ruled out stationing nuclear weapons former u.s. congressman ron paul told us washington should let the korean leaders resolve the crisis 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 about building up and having these war games what are these war games
where are they practicing you know is so unnecessary 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 a preemptive preventive war is aggression and that i don't lie. the french president's labor reform plans which are due this month was voiced on tuesday with nationwide strikes on hundred surprise leaks protests and turned violent with project ellison fleurs being thrown.
yes i was forced out of here you know your. opponents of the labor reform say they give employers more power to negotiate conditions limits compensation for unfair dismissal on merges unions. is in part. one of the big newspapers here in france will miss him i know my son's christening old resolve the biggest street protests to take place in front ever since he was elected president this year and people here are very unhappy about the labor law that he wants to implement paying he wants to shake up the job market and make it easier to hire and fire personnel he thinks full time is obviously high unemployment rate here in front of it is almost non of the rates in the u.k. and germany but the trade unions dead set against the changes and they have come
out in full force hitting the streets in that town says in paris today in order to say no to michael micron's plan for changes to the law now this is being seen as a bit of a litmus test because i know my own seat spent a lot of the summer trying to placate some of the smaller trade unions nevertheless today's demonstration has been organized by the largest trade union and we've been speaking to people what the french railway network to add traffic controllers even people who watch as comedians in cars it comes as old that was weak. but i can see you say that they believe that they represent the likes of the employers in fun i'm not the only take a listen to what they had to say. this lowers anti social because it's reliable for one of. the budget wall this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work
doesn't give privileges in both the public and the private sector as we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement should be from the draft or thanks eighteen million workers the majority of all french workers will significantly limit their rights and make it easier to find people even when it's not justified that. it's about to low which is harmful for us this would leave us without any war there and. nothing not one major bit about last week when he told the people that it. remains and i will be absolutely determined to do that i will not yield in any way not to slack because you're not to cynics not to extremists. we gathered here today to protest against macron and his policies which undermine the very existence of the workers from spirit this movement is necessary it is the
response of the french people who are protecting their right. to positively houston take sun. and he was all about that later on looking foolish in it only. because it had all possible absolutely he's only thinking about it for me to put. it made it clear. to feel that you can do to contribute to school for the little boy you know with. a modem and face the protests here at home and probably the president who is determined to push these those three he says he has a strong mandate in order to implement he has stepped into office in the french caribbean in order to deal with the full out in
a hurricane of baghdad so the protest am leaving billed as a showdown between the pro-business president who's come to power a common thing need to shake on the job market funds the trade union movement he was the last opportunity to stumble upon some of this load of bull or it's washed through mother moments of over the next week. there's been a breakthrough agreement from the peace talks on syria more right off the. charts seems wrong. on all levels just don't hold. yet to shape out just cuts to the ticket and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
to national community continues lee emphasize about one theoretical united iraq as a slogan maybe an approach will for the politicians but in reality on the ground iraqis recognize united and the as kurds to be blamed school what is happening in the rest of iraq under the direct wrong direction is that iraq has gone through . the syrian army has reached the euphrates river i keester teach
a point as groups battle for control of water supplies in the country government forces clear divide us law make state from two more districts in the eastern of the city. earlier this week the russian navy supporting the syrian military had a number of terrorist targets close to the city. russia's defense ministry say that ice will come on down communications posts as well as i mean those were destroyed seven cruise missiles were launched on thursday from two submarines stationed in the mediterranean after enduring three years of terror starvation and ongoing finding in terrorism we're locals are nonetheless trying to bring some normality to their lives.
the sort of very many many sheets. when russia has responded to the pentagon after the us said its coalition partners were hit by a russian earth strike close to jurors who were. give warning to the u.s. in advance of the strike not its earth force only conducts precision strikes on eyes or positions confirmed by curfew intelligence the statement goes on to say that russia account unser why coalition forces were located at islamic state positions. meanwhile the latest round of syria peace talks in kazakhstan a seen a breakthrough agreement on deescalation zones which could finally provide some peace in the war ravaged country the current tours of the peace element russia iran turkey have signed a document marking the boundaries of the final deescalation zone in the province in northwest syria that's on top of the already implemented zones elsewhere in the country and while there is still much to be done to unite all the country's forces
in the struggle against terrorism versus special envoy for syria is hopeful. we consider the establishment of deescalation will still be a major milestone it has served as the lights at the end of the tunnel for the syrian people and made them feel more secure gives hope for progress in the near future. well as islamic state suffers a string of major defeats many of the fighters family members are ending up in refugee camps their future is highly uncertain r.t. being among the first to talk to some of the widows of foreign extremists and want to rock the four hundred three being honest they location on their identities will not be disclosed for their sake. until you know i was watching a program does this. people like me go to store the energy. to.
hear someone. tell us. the legal status of the wise advice of fighters is not yet clear in europe last year almost six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty prosecuted for ties to extremists we talked to a couple of political commentators about whether the y. fighters who followed their husbands into conflict zones should be treated like street. 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 and they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't 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 have chosen to join a terrorist organization and just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever what mr ibish are saying how they got you are in a terrorist organization so i want to know this have you met you know i don't these i've been saying they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look at your little girl you don't like your name for yourself as a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out and 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. these women many of them will be innocent people the children the 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. two children have been reunited with their relatives here in russia after being rescued from territory which was under eisel control in iraq here at r.t. we launched a campaign called bring them home to help the authorities trace the orphans. relations. were find in mosul it's believed the youngsters in media families were killed in fighting there too traumatized to tell their stories but it's all thought the boy was rescued from a basement where he hid with his mother two brothers and sister are teammates. in a by dad often age when they arrived there two weeks ago.
to be a mother. but at the door. that . is crucial i knew. i knew the right to be a ball boy nice to be a ballplayer mom. jacqueline who was on thier porch for a swim in the youngsters arrived. both children were clearly traumatized clinging to the adults their finally bringing them home a little had usually kept touching her leg and at one point she lifted up her pant leg and you could see bandages and scars from when she was injured during her time in mosul now we learned a little bit more of young i've learned story was probably around nine years old he told those that he was with apparently that he was in the basement for a long period of time in mosul surrounded by other kids in terrible conditions and
that it was constantly hearing the sound of bombs falling. or. father died separately klein was in a basement with his mother two brothers and his sister he was the only one who survived sadly these two are just a few among many many children for no apparent list and alone far far away from home. well though is the way you've been used pun died this week i mean i know you're leaving you for an hour with the him edges of one of those big stories the ongoing tensions on the korean peninsula between the north and south. with just manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the famous
merry go round. we can all middle of the room sit. in the real news room. eighteen years ago i travelled across the united states exploring america's deadly love affair with a gun if a bad guy tried to get to one of my family members he would have better live better and i think they are inheriting when i buy my babies says my book was published in the year two thousand more than half a million americans have been killed by phones in the us how to saute me as i did this is a middle school we go through drills and we put ourselves some real scenarios it was interest same to see who actually got hit. and i just saw i did to return to the subject to track down each gun owner who i'd met and photographed
those years ago i don't know that but we are not. welcome to terrorism has been unequivocal declared as the scorch of our times a phenomena worthy of wavering condemnation and as a live action but when it comes to the practicalities of fighting terrorism do all members of the international community really practice what they preach to discuss that i'm now a joined by their ordinator of the united nations. monitoring team mr sions
it's such a great pleasure talking to you thank you very much for you for me now you're a security expert who is dedicated to fighting something that is not really defined in international law because there is no universally agreed upon definition of terrorism doesn't that leave you in the position of when you have to fide a label a terrorist brand rather than thin them and then the such well see the interesting aspects about the security council work on that i wouldn't rising on the sanctions is that it has taken that position not to define terrorism but to tell the world who are so we have. seventy five plus exchanges pretty much in the databases groups around the world that sanction us being connected. so there you have your political field the internationally agreed groups that are terrorists but the missions are you know better than i did that. they'll qaeda ideology sometimes
espoused by groups that do not call themselves and in fact in syria we had a number of efforts by and the. brand itself without any doctrinal changes and specifically to sort of distance itself from the al qaeda title so again how are you going to define who is and who is not no it's more than the ideology and. and in fact most of the groups on the sanctions list are not called al qaida what for example is on the sanctions list the terek a taliban pakistan on the sanctions list saw it the definition that gets you on the list is number one you need to take concrete action in support off on behalf of in the name of al-qaeda so it is about active engagement on recruitment on getting money on procuring rep or on supporting in any actual process for example if you are seeking acts of measures. targeting civilians killing innocent people in the name of let's say so.
