well we. want. a development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in the syrian town of duma with russia are inviting local witnesses to testify the incident was staged. in another level. in the basement and then heard someone outside screamed go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this but on the phone as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used to. pressure mounts on cattle from its regional rivals amid claims the dubai based company commissioned a film linking the gulf state terrorism to justify sanctions. and not even a dollar facebook's technology chief tells british m.p.'s that moscow is spending on adverts during the breaks it votes total for just ninety seven cents.
you know watching the latest headlines here is r.t. international thank you for joining us i'm kate partridge local doctors in syria say they've seen no one with symptoms of chemical poisoning in the aftermath of the alleged attack in the town of duma witnesses explained how events unfolded on april the seventh to the un backed chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative r.t. speech or never has the details. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the opi c.w. alexander surely again he was an equivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took place in doomer on the seventh of april eighth
staged chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up and then statements by the syrian representative the b o p c w and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in the tank now one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old has sunday up he was one of those people that was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack. he described a very different scene in that they have a. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on and i don't know why they did this.
to. me. do you remember where it happened. to be right here. there is it. here it is. that they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and that's mean the video that's me. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time and they went into times excruciating detail about what they saw what they didn't see on that day
on the seventh of april and file some doctors saying that although they trained people for this fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were inhaling smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of does go into the. asked with the rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home we had no
fatalities or instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been answered well r.t. heard from former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford and middle east expert walk off they believe the evidence matters little so western governments. either ignored or attempts will be made. on the mind it in fact it can only really on the way but i think when ordinary people. really. are bound to be impressed and in fact anybody with half a brain could see that these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. w.t. was going to come up with from you it's highly unlikely that they would say risible
that there was a chemical attack while these three actors were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb without with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes to assert their authority or so they think and so we're still on the table. is being revealed to dubai based company hired a top p.r. executive to produce a film linking cattle with terrorism a report from the bureau of investigative journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon with more on this his artie's more that goes the earth. there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from mere unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all those annoying ethical restrictions on
tissues newsgathering. back and seeing the process and work in the process so then realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and or on various channels locally and we were to make it its best we could look. as if it was made locally belled part to injure specialized didn't military grade propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years to the us commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together al qaida propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track of our google analytics
good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stalked racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having neural disease once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what bellport and just former boss is up to the biggest diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis that qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cattle saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary
financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al qaida who operate freely out of do and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam. and global jihad. mr own dreher was paid handsomely by a dubai based company to smear carter tire to terrorists to iran to tell everyone how bad and dirty it is using the iraqi formula anyway where's the radical islamism is operation. operation going to be fine. these documentary really isn't became available on netflix you tube it was sure to trump's former chief strategist steve ballmer and former cia director david petraeus ex defense secretary leon panetta just to make it clear foreign
money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on figg grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda well so far the film production company andrea and associates as well as the dubai based lot this communications have said they won't comment while the film was released last summer when gulf states cut different trade and transport ties with qatar accusing it of supporting terrorism this is something doha has repeatedly denied then the u.s. president sided with the arab nations saying qatar had a history of funding terror at a very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the i'm salacious campaign. which
the kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east. qatar should finance the u.s. military's presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president lifts an american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar then the regime there will fall within less than a week well the saudi foreign minister there was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops in cancer he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from wealthy u.s. allies in the middle east however security analyst charles hsu bridge believes it's the saudis who should be concerned about their friendship with washington. is using this issue as a stick to beat qatar and of course qatar has used its considerable wealth to
attack for example a propaganda term saudi arabia both countries have been uncomfortable allies for some time said that by backing the syrian rebellion of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because its armed forces are small but of course they would like to see qatar finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words without the americans those countries would fall within hours or weeks or something like this he said this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to get deflect attention onto one another but. facebook has had another grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giant has been taken to task by m.p.'s over the platform's handling of people's private data it was also questioned about russian online
activity around the time of the brics it vote artie's an associate check and have reports russian brock's it could have been potentially a hot topic here in westminster this thursday however that did not go quite well as a grilling of a top facebook executive didn't seem to go and produce too much we did look at several times to understand connections between the ira. and the brits a referendum that you meant in two thousand and sixteen we found one dollar of spending so this is the extent of what we found which is you know almost nothing given to the ways of the it wouldn't if we had it happen to look good if it did happen it was done it this way to say you know i can't prove a negative that was facebook's chief technology officer who to add insult. injury was sent by mark zuckerberg to answer m.p.'s questions depart despite repeated pleas to have the facebook c.e.o. appear before this committee himself and we have to be clear that this is far from
the first time when attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and brags that have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to brackets and even when this committee traveled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency link accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents must not point some of the total number of accounts that is a very low level thing until we complete this investigation we won't know but what we haven't had is. information that enabled us to target on a particular page or a particular phenomenon. the current leaders of north and south
korea are holding a historic first ever summers the meeting between kim jong un and moon giant has been widely anticipated in korea and around the world the meeting in panmunjom village in the demilitarized zone that divides the two koreas the air is one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world the speculation the negotiations could finally lead to a formal peace treaty after the korean war ended only in a truce in ninety fifty three well almost three thousand journalists registered to cover the event the summit is full of historic references and symbolism the lawn in front of seoul city hall has been decorated with an outline of the korean peninsula it's also planned for kim jong un and moon giant to hold a symbolic tree planting ceremony. well meanwhile u.s. president donald trump has displayed a striking shift in his thinking about north korea's leader moving from a war of words to open place begin to have married men rocket men
shooting rockets all over the place we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea they will be met with fire of fury. we're having very very good discussions. or was he really has been very open. and i think very honorable from everything we're seeing well nato chief here in stoltenberg has welcomed the meeting between the north and south korean leaders but he adds the pressure and sanctions on pyongyang will continue well. into korean summit i think that's a bit encouraging also welcome the announcement by north korea to stop posting nuclear weapons on. missile parts to we see concrete changes to north korea's
actions we must continue to put pressure on north korea and to continue with the sanctions human rights attorney eric sarong can says a final peace treaty between north and south will pave the way to doing denuclearize nation on the korean peninsula. i think what we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said is south african history and hope good why do you have it. in a certain time in a certain slates and i really am hopeful that from these talks we can see the framework for a full peace treaty to finally end this conflict it seems both sides are ready and willing to do that if the south and north he create the frame to give their own steps in self-determination then the us as it's much smaller role to play if we can
agree that and hold them to the notion that ending the hostile policy creating the peace treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. a golf club in the u.s. state of pennsylvania has apologized to five point women for calling the police on them they were kicked off the grounds after the co-owners of the club and his father complained that the women were playing too slowly it's the latest of several incident where african americans have been arrested or asked to leave a public facility in the us. and i'm sunday a black woman was arrested as a diner in alabama for refusing to pay for plastic utensils the video of her arrest shows officers resting her typical hand two weeks ago there was another case
a starbucks in philadelphia stuff there called the police on two black men because they hadn't placed an order and wanted to use the toilet that sparked a wave of anti racism protests. jock a guy that can. be ok in response the c.e.o. of starbucks ordered all coffee houses to close the mandatory anti-racism training following a nationwide campaign against the company for more reaction on this account he spoke with economist i've perkins and human rights activist randy short. racism against the two sions is real and that we're prejudiced is real that's that we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia
spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black beetle that she's trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do. order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage of are you guys loitering and not purchasing products from the store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again but i don't think that's a little girl running the starbucks as best she can and reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again he's thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have a literate and businesses yes there are folks out of water some of them of black but i've worked with a lot of white drunks in my day and they don't get handle quite the same way this is a fact i'm not going to last october or early atlanta and playing a larger slowly than men and five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for the fact that i would like has nothing to do with it it's
the fact that they are lol as so long as people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the mage. already it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them tomorrow now this is where i asked myself the question at what point do you treat black people like ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and started valuating them as human beings and how they're acting that's my question you. can draw overseas also bring in the u.s. over the imminent release of a prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policemen have been bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police union has been making a desperate last ditch attempt to keep him locked up. more print has more. herman bell the tourist for being a cop killer and
a member of the black liberation army will soon become a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers it seems that individuals with no knowledge of ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policeman's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they're guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman del despite his record as a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual
messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture now one. they're not wanting six
hundred thousand plus letters being sent to the parole board to eb requesting this man's parole be denied it's manipulation in this court of you know i mean i remember incidents very tragic incident he actually three people put prose what it is you know we have murders rape is awesome this people are getting paroled every single day and hell bent on if you kill a cop they want you just the right engine to jail is supposed to be for people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity. r.t. new york. the us media has apparently hits a new low in its demonization of russia and s. and bases morning joe host joe scarborough said white house physician ronnie jackson sounded like hitler's dealt to vladimir putin's doctor or adulterating with korea when describing donald trump's health it seems american journalism is framing
you concept of evil. it's out there like hitler is dr i'm sorry you say that forget about hitler strike killer but let's just say many who are another autogyro chowk are coming out. she lied about it she claims she never wrote those blog posts in the first place someone else did she said she didn't sinestro engines perhaps employed by them or putin.
week a nationalist group destroyed the roma camp children were reportedly injured in the incident people fled while their tents and other belongings were burned the attackers also used tear gas and reportedly guns. currently no one can be sure that they want become the next week to warm up radicals they shoot themselves with mattresses and caring for the public but actually they're terrorizing ordinary people while police in kiev say there were no reports of violence and the fires were part of a clean up operation and its goal commentator thinks nationalists in ukraine have the government's support i suppose that on the local level some policemen the world try to prevent violence but when the government and the parliament officially praise and glory finances how can expect anything else and i said actually it's not they first came to jews is the very bottom hole first said but
then they came to obvious when they came to me it was too late i mean people in the west should not be silent about it meanwhile surratt is in the ukrainian city liveth of also opened a painting contest to mark the creation of a nazi division in the country chairing the second world war teenagers are being asked to draw or something linked to ukrainian as you volunteered for the nazi unit and there's a cash prize for the best one having to ask and says the rise of nationalism is not confined to ukraine. where many places in europe kind of. radical. views are becoming more and more popular and this is a result of the whole crisis which was caused by immigration and european union cannot provide an answer and this atmosphere of search this spirit today causes some right wing radical groups to succeed in certain places. american
broadcaster n.b.c. has discovered artie's online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to r.t. in an exposé article the journalists say they looked at the registration data of the show's website and cross checked it against the registration for r.t. well they could have saved themselves the trouble if they'd just gone to the web site r.t. dot com and clicked on shows where they defined it at the top in response to n.b.c. scooper in case she missed it has taken viewers behind the scenes to blow the lid off its connection to r.t. . so here we are first look offices although there is a slight smell in the. vodka and caviar. we're in so it was probably a spy i keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in
