10:09 pm
a change in circumstance can see your life go from bad to worse when you're on the street. when the stakes raised for her tiny house i want to see how ravens coping with the news of her pregnancy. despite getting orders to move she's still here at the same campsite look. you know want to know. where they're from. a little concerned regarding the conditions. living at this time i got a lot of business to take care of. don't know if i'm having the time ticker but i
10:10 pm
was amazed because i. like. getting off the street. but getting off the streets is difficult for even. we talk more and she reveals the devastating level of violence she fled as a kid we did she live. i was listed as a juvenile runaway. bride to have been in prison. five months pregnant with. murder. life. had no choice but to grow up. ravens had to learn to be tough. but she's right on the pitch. like more and more americans
10:11 pm
take here. she strips deep in the cycle of long term homelessness. with no immediate way of getting out. when your life is the size of a teen can be a powerful tool. it's almost delivery day and with the news that raven's pregnant elvis is adding a special finishing touch to her tiny house. so some of us just a little something to help her feel better and you know help her feel like she's got a nice guy to look at elvis knows how important little details like this can be he's watched too many people lose hope on the streets since the city forced me to take houses away from people three people have died mainly due to being stuck out in the elements not having anywhere to go so it's it's criminal. picture
10:12 pm
smokey sitting in the doorway of her her tiny house one of the people who died was his close friend smokey who received the very first tiny house new year's morning i found her dead in somebody else's tent not even her own because the city took that to. so. it's pretty simple without shelter people die. so. it's been a few months but. a good person and she was my friend. inside city hall the pressure is on to create more housing. the city has approved a multibillion dollar strategy to help the homeless but it will take ten years to build ten thousand new units which is well below to. get officials refuse to
10:13 pm
embrace elvis is tiny for me a tiny house on a parking space is not a solution were are doing that this service to those individuals who stayed in these tiny homes without the out of but if a structure in place city council. opposed to tiny houses in his district because of concerns from angry residents. someone monitoring the site otherwise it'll be a free for all it'll be sex drugs and rock'n'roll and. they will absolutely you have to have some rules and. see. if they are here why put these guys back with us and the city is clear intense yet again this time even in christine's camp right now that load open up there was
10:14 pm
a show. that's considered a faulty item so it's going in the dumpster. almost christine's belongings are taken by the department of sanitation but residents not around so only christine is here to see it they say you know you were climbing to hit rock bottom. didn't i run five every year. was. all that money spent. you could spend half of that and give these people a place to go but instead their tree and i had. with ravens camp demolished most of her positions gone and with the baby on the way elvis must deliver her tiny house before nightfall to close with him. i finally found a suitable location for ravens tiny house in
10:15 pm
a quiet area mostly industrial it's not going to affect anybody. elvis and raven hope this part of downtown l.a. away from skid row will be safe from the authorities. with already he's must continue to keep l.a. streets clean days finally. for the time he has delivery and how you feeling very good by good very good i am going to drop out of this i am going through a lot of hardship to sell this tiny house the suburban house. after the week that she's had and everything she's gone through on top of the in fragments it's more important now that she gets the house because i don't think she can go much longer with not get any rest. you really feel if.
10:16 pm
i do. a good thing. i think. i'm going to think. most things i do in life are out of principle. i was taught that somebody falls down you pick them back up. that's what we should do a life. to remember that you know you know. you called me and said. you know people sit on the back porch and. look at the stars they want looking up at the entire area have to see it sit not look at the tire but the stars it's got a magic little bit. so finally raven gets her own private space. hopefully the first time in over a year
10:17 pm
a good night's sleep and helen if you think it's going to last. that was said to say with us forever i wish it could last forever. after god's hands. were. when lawmakers manufacture consensus and stick to the public well. when the
10:18 pm
ruling classes protect themselves. with the financial merry go round the sun be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. i mean real news is real. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you can walk into excitement it's that not knowing that's where the adrenaline rush comes from. and you can easily move by definition and the extremes of all forms of. violence is a part and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture where you can do all these things and behave badly.
10:19 pm
you're going to be full of horse colorful all. schools also focus on the last. punishment and infirm for a while and good on policy in the start. of a broader where no i figure out really did a poll that i now want to get. meaning in reason is that at least if you don't and the involves is constantly involved in the. i i i.
10:20 pm
i. it was scary he started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this known as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used in the stories that shaped the week witnesses give testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma some people still refused to listen though. the leaders of north and south korea meet for the first time in over a decade to open a new chapter in the pin into this history. and the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations even though the careers of many russian athletes may have been destroyed by his claims.
10:21 pm
for joining us this is the weekly here. locals in doctress from the syrian town of duma testified this week at the un backed chemical watchdog headquarters in the netherlands they were saying that they witnessed no sign of an alleged chemical attack on april seventh r.t. arabic located a boy who was seen in unverified white helmets video and showed the supposed aftermath of a toxic strike the boy gave evidence to the o p c w a not everybody wanted to hear what he had to say against the of explains. when these reviews emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed dozens of civilians and astaire's that the us had regime has
10:22 pm
previously used chemical attacks the assad regime has used the same yellow gas canisters the n.s.c. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was used they must have had solid evidence you don't just flew into a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong you know they have all right we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the saw was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water neither
10:23 pm
did the doctors see anything. 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 and about fifteen cases this happened because people were inhaling smoke and the only shows symptoms of choking and nothing more. because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of go into the hospital rooms with. 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 a poisonous substance is this isn't helping western journalists the leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when you put your mojo not if you don't understand normal language let's try
10:24 pm
a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here's the onset about it we came here willingly we demanded the red cross allow us to come here. wrong then truth there isn't the right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the
10:25 pm
reason that the boy had to fly over. yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has scientists told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught that you mentioned in a russian press release that somebody here was going to be present to was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. more and more it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today evidence the
10:26 pm
white helmet still is fake i don't know maybe i missed something but. in one ear out the other with no pause in between. we discussed this with independent research or vanessa bailey she's been to do him herself to collect people's testimonies. when i spoke to people in duma dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred metres away from the alleged attack they were also all saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i was shocked at the levels to which western. has stooped over this alleged event and the moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that were
10:27 pm
saying in western media i mean to accuse russia. basically exploiting a child in need. of a eleven year old has and after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember loved that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that if o.p.c. w find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed our fresh air around the site before a.b.c. w could get there. the joint western strikes in response to
10:28 pm
that alleged chemical attack appear to strengthen the bonds between two of the leaders behind them namely donald trump and emmanuel micron and judging by the body language seen during the french president's visit to washington this week it seems a bromance is brewing. messy book. thank you. like it's a great honor great honor that you are but we do have a very special relationship a very good piece of. peace we have to make room for years for. the french president also highlighted the blossoming friendship by giving trump a symbolic oak sapling it was taken from a world war one site in france where u.s. marines have helped to repel a german offensive in nine hundred eighteen however just several days later it was
10:29 pm
revealed the tree and apparently being removed pretty uses dug deep joking that the tree quote must have been an unfair trade deal for trump and some even blames russia for the disappearance whether the tree was actually removed or not the gift was certainly a new take on the bond between the french and us presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macro on how to be hanging out the quasi modo and as a global politics and showing that country grown together. to gather. french and american presidents also sweet lou is holding hands on this being that second date but even under the french style kiss macro is the last foreign leader to be treated to a full state visit to the u.s. funded from not even a special relationship willing to resume a goal the full state visit and she is the one that started all this hand-holding
10:30 pm
business but these grave presidents have forged their relationship. there in the inflict the tear enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace in a couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but nothing that western alliance will move resist the cheese eating surrender monkeys of the drug on loan from both michael and bush to hard to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars whether to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian warehouses was aside this relationship looks pretty strange from the outside in the know how the french the barrio in philadelphia eagles talk. you won't be surprised by the length of the degree to which does not hold the two nations told the global security and here they are burying gold is walk in the garden apparently
10:31 pm
the other european leaders will not cross the trunk. because of the influence over the already one it is only days based adoptive french accent to where he takes us in the end to send him home as bond over the middle east people. monday they run. any of them labeling the child must find out because they want. to know that most of. them have their. own pomp and french president german chancellor angela merkel is also paid a visit to washington although the interactions between herself and trump were significantly more formal the iran nuclear deal that was one of the main issues discussed with the u.s. threatening to scrap the agreement political analysts side mustapha thinks that
10:32 pm
while front might be coming around to america's thinking europe as a whole is not the trio nations in your office personally friends even more than germany and he's trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to you on some of your shoes but your goal is a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio of european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on the on for its missile group general i think it is so this shows the europe is not much willing to you know work with. friday saw a historic meeting take place it was the first summit between the leaders of north and south korea for more than a decade. after
10:33 pm
10:34 pm
hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warm relations the leaders announced that they had to seek the full denuclearization of the peninsula they also vowed to stop all hostile actions against each other and to gradually reduce their weapons arsenals in addition they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty donald trump praised the progress made between the sides and following decades attention it seems like a final peace treaty could actually be on the horizon human rights attorney eric zero kin believes the two careers are indeed ready. i think what we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said in south africa history and hope could live if you have it in a certain time in
10:35 pm
a certain slates and i really 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 to create the frame to give their own steps and 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 a peace treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. now the russian whistleblower the center of claims of state sponsored doping is failed to stand by his allegations in cool its details after the break.
10:36 pm
what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to be rich. which is going to be pressure that's what i'm up for three of them or ten people that i'm interested in always in the audience and out. there should be more.
10:37 pm
four people have been killed in the latest spell a sting in antioch a patient malaise in gaza palestinian health officials say hundreds more were left injured during friday's protests and they were the latest in a series of planned mass demonstrations dubbed the great march of return. i.
10:38 pm
think. this is another injury that's came just right now there have been severe injuries in the head and in the legs. in the post minutes we received at least ten people with severe injuries to the stomach and head the ambulances are still carrying hundreds of injured people to the hospitals there is a lack of medicine and medical equipment in the hospitals and they're crowded so as you see this is another ambulance that's came just right now. from my look at your defense and as you see this i'm liz has at least the fire palestinians that have been injured what happened right now near the fence is that of at least two thousand palestinian protesters and tried to interfere and break that the fence and what happened is there's only forces and i reacted there violently and this time i
10:39 pm
did. i know these palestinian protesters broke the price that according to palestinian minister brown at least there are twenty palestinians are is if you are critical condition and they can declare their death in any any minute. now the unrest is taking place near a security fence that surrounds land which palestinians klang was stolen from the protesters have been met with a heavy handed response from the israeli army in four weeks at least forty five palestinians have been killed thousands more have been injured the u.n. and he condemned the israeli response to the protests. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to use deadly force against their fellow human beings even when they present no threat in the contests of an occupation such as guards or killings
10:40 pm
resulting from the arm for full use of force may also constitute willful killings which are a grave breach of the fourth geneva convention. the israeli troops however insists they only open fire at the main instigators of trouble who throw stones or molotov cocktails or those who attempt to breach the fence but the non-lethal methods used by the i.d.f. still pose a significant threat for example sponge tipped rubber bullets the latest version of which are said to be harder and heavier than previous ones they've been linked to severe injuries and even death in modern israeli human rights group recently released a video that reportedly showed a group of soldiers in the west bank discussing the use of live. ah.
10:41 pm
we asked these really army to comment on the video it said that the behavior seen is not in accordance with what's expected of i.d.f. soldiers but it ended the commander at the time had told the soldiers to act professionally the i.d.f. also promised to revise relevant procedures. young palestinians have been among those killed in these demonstrations one incident was caught on camera it showed a teenager shot in the head an israeli sniper last week the boy's father says that his son posed no threat to the soldiers it's an israeli general believes that it's the price to be paid to ensure the safety of the country. usually. the low i said mohammad was three hundred meters away from the fence and even if he was right next to it he was a peaceful demonstration he was just
10:42 pm
a child was he carrying a missile launcher was he shooting at the soldier who killed him why did they kill him i'll tell you what mohammed did wrong mohammed's fault was that he was demanding his rights to my great sorrow sometimes when shooters small body and you intend to his arm or shoulder it goes even higher and the picture is not a pretty picture of your view if that's the price that we have to pay that reserve the safety and quality of life of the residents of the state of israel and that's the price. for. the format of moscow's anti doping the barratry. key witness in the russian doping scandal has failed to confirm a number of allegations he made against the country's athletes this was during his testimony to the court of arbitration for sport in february the court upheld the appeals of twenty eight russian athletes who previously been banned for doping it's only now though giving some of its reasons he's done after and my colleague andre farmer to discuss the latest. byrne first and foremost in the past few years that
10:43 pm
we've seen the scandal unravel a should say it has been established that pretty much every single athlete in russia dope so it seems it was common knowledge at least that they had a special drug cocktail brewed performance that the swapped the dirty urine samples for clean ones through some hole in the lab walls so a lot of was said and was said by a man named grigori roche and of so he was the key witness he put forward the allegations but in the in the case basically during that hearing the court of arbitration for sports he revealed that many of the stuff that he said was best circumstantial first and foremost he said that he never actually administered the said cocktail which he claims he concocted to himself he says that he never saw anyone administering these said steroid cocktail he didn't know how the cocktail was smuggled from russia abroad because well you know to be used in an
10:44 pm
international championship it would have to cross the border and also he's never been a witness to the mysterious you know you're in the swamp dirty to clean one he did say that his allegations came from basically talking to his co-leaders but that was it when it comes to these allegations and in the past two years his words were taken at face value i should say no one questioned them and of himself was propelled to fame even starring in an oscar winning documentary about the doping problem and russia i was helping to facilitate what was the last elaborate employees in sports history was aware of the existence of a russian doping system. level to the. chunk of claims with the foundation. richard mclaren report which was then used for
10:45 pm
a blanket ban on russian athletes and he was speaking to was an e in this court case what did he say well indeed sir richard mclaren a canadian law who basically pulled put the burden on his shoulders to compile a massive report on the scale of the dopping problem in russia testifying in front of the same judge being cross-examined as well he said that basically while he did not shy away from mentioning athletes by name in the report in no way he said he meant to you know assume that they were guilty of something so basically being mentioned in his doping report did not mean he says that those athletes were complicit he also revealed he couldn't basically you couldn't explain justify to the court of arbitration for sport why he trusted roger and why he never questioned his allegations also he refused to provide the names of other witnesses of you know of turn it of sources so to speak he used to put together the report so the good
10:46 pm
news for those thirty say athletes that had their appeals up held but they would say well ok ok that is good news but the damage as far as we're concerned is already been done to our names well indeed because what happened back in february twenty eighth russian athletes they used to be banned for life they had been banned for life from participating in the olympics which means they were stripped of their medal as the future held nothing for them from that point no more achievement see have. revoked and it happened literally a few days before the kickoff of the olympic games in south korea and none of them were invited to participate so there you have it you know mud sticks. ok i'll be back with the latest news headlines at the top of the hour to see if.
10:47 pm
anything that interrupts free trade interrupts freedom and i think interim freedom is a reversion back to neo feudalism and we see that happening right now in the united states and presumably here in canada as well as concentrated in a few or fewer hands grabbing a river of the risk of neo feudalism on the horizon crypto is is the answer in my view and it is an asset class and it is gobbling up market share and the us dollar is doing all three our money is joe. the special position of western countries makes it possible for all opposition groups to use the chemical weapon to pretend this is the fault of human governments because in this situation like today the western countries. do not sweep for any investigation. aside the for the
10:48 pm
responsibility of. the body. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you're going to walk into it you never know who's going to be there and it's that excitement it's that you know it that's where the adrenalin must comes from through
10:49 pm
. only going is a means by definition and extremes to all for your support because you're prepared to fight for the reputation and name of your football club. the violence is a part of it and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture like it's a part time gang culture where you can do all these things and be a god that. i. believe in islam is that beast if i may evolve this constantly evolving.
10:50 pm
to roll or get off. oh i'm going to go. despite owning three restaurants he still prefers to tenderize and grill me to himself it isn't just his stuff and clients who called him the shelf shelf is the nickname of the founder of the wise men from gothenburg one of the most violent gangs of football hooligans in europe. us back down extremity and into heaven anyways it was fun thing to do soccer to football he wanted a family and everything in stockholm about it and now it's all more violent supporters and for them yes it was kind of easy targets for thought in doing trips over there risking pubs you know just to rest people and
10:51 pm
a few us finally had enough and like ok the flight back. from vienna is more like self-defense most of my boot and sort of we've had to go to this is that it is more or fans started going to trips abroad got. i'm going to stand up i read stall or wrecked stuff a stabbing i will say it standing face before is a small like old school fighting storming pogs closing each other with no rewards you know people are using sticks and knives and bottles and everything would be going to get your hands on chairs now it's more violent but there roylance was more respect and we didn't have any real sin actually want to kill each other. and in the arms that i die when i was actually died and i was more sportsmanship well for this fight. i don't i don't. i. i.
10:52 pm
thought i might. get together on haunted poses both stated tykes for the throne sixty plus and. when a young you really have to show yourself you have to participate in all the fights you have to go to games. or if i think it's really important if you and i will be along you can play can blame oh my good friend don't don't go we had to go. thank you thank you. for the unfussy fight maybe six times a year i'm in shouldn't be too old to get away six times a year well. they're. trying out these days you're going to have to train at least three times a week. and you won't cheat on up on my show you know i mean i've got to take out
10:53 pm
daughter trying to five the strongest try to sell me trying to foist on us my father to the team so you don't want to have someone who's just hanging over. you know. oh no. no oh well. almost everyone is she's doing much show some training distanced. bassists starbucks is. saying and i'm in may and i'm going to we tried to train together here. granted we did i think we see on monday for when they come where they would go you know that's going to try
10:54 pm
to get to the numbers. and with a piece and stuff like that so it's different every day. because sometimes we both are sick with gathering or sometimes we get that the. central time is the one before there may be a year due to that there's they want to fart in time and we miss the group but also . the best way to find out there so if we're stuck. or just following them too old or something not too late the night before the day most of the game it depends. i think there is still. the pub and i became firefighters on plus us with on third person and usually it's the one two three minutes. we. get them. or they run away or both they're going to save. and so technically it's more about
10:55 pm
sceptical numbers feel some one on em games yeah remembering them everything so if we stand up we will not tell. you god you know you know that it was an interesting. because it's all a club thing from scandinavia that probably the most crazy i think anyone in the most right wing friends. that's quite scary. if some of the extreme for. the wise men and badly boys and such all of those guys it is all about the fight becomes about the confrontation clubs know every game but when you've got a local rivalry it will be if there is any vanity it will be about who comes out on
10:56 pm
top. and. for the left it up a different game of the one in. the greek capital is divided into zones of influence between the greens and the reds and i said i goes into libya because supporting hooligans.
10:57 pm
are just like every day something of a different. kind of a thing if. you know if i got down to long after the months they come and where are the same difficult men so. that's what they want to. but how many of the other one in the somalia have live updates on the gov some of the listings huntsmen under six will discuss only when we sample moscow this is the world like you but i get it's a phenomenon in the next eleven so i don't know. why do we keep only become a focus on this alone while we should be paying for you all but disposing of sexual that's going on us that. speed on the one without the long term this last one let us alone the. second i'm going to get on with the other you might make it that way saying if get in los you know it's
10:58 pm
a confluence of the bodies must. not only do this the others like i actually so think i'm one of the things you got to psych. the we don't have them we do. one of the thirty no no if this. get excited. they loose. all fifty on attacks on just some of you it's use this. to. make us all mexico thought i've done my duty. see the visible of this for one about three months and must also have almost on a fair amount of freedom and brought a bunch of. rivalry between the fans of two athens based clubs olympiakos simple nothing like us has
10:59 pm
become a war of attrition that has raged for decades the conflict has seen dozens of young greeks mutilated and even killed. every athens dumby provoke street fights in southern europe the fair play rules between hooligans are really observed they win motorcycle helmets fight with sticks steel rods and often knives to. be unique or that are i missed something most of their own of course you must also there are more then enough of the in name mosques they love are now going to they will send our source for the left other than the one you know. oh you guys are one of my course and about you and i do my long talk on. this they will do that some of this fourth day after told me source yes you want to ask them what they say a lot of what they have from what i want they see how much i learned from give a shelter. to the left.
11:00 pm
to be midnight because someone else would listen yes they know me i'm sick and i'm so let me see what i'm interested in. your list i'll make them one of them on the spot i missed you but oh yes the lord want to sit on. a limb bianca's fans have been banned for the team's next two. but even though no spectators will be able to attend the next match that doesn't mean there will be no fighting the olympiakos hooligans are scouring the city in search of rival groups to well as before kick off scouts report finding twenty odd but often i call schools. a group of reds immediately sets off a location finding anything they could use as
11:01 pm
a weapon close to. fix the threat of violence and the potential for fun that is where the adrenaline come . on in the attraction of the who can coach for many years the fact that a match taping it doesn't impact on the rest of the week. and in many cases you won't even see the guys you see at football during the working week because you come from movie from places different thank. stream politics have always been linked because football provides a very good recruiting ground for these people because you go to groups of working class lads together. so it's easy to spread that message easy to find you know like minded individuals my view my personal view is that the country everyone needs to be keeping an eye on in terms of hooliganism and racism is germany because of the
11:02 pm
immigration situation i think there is a huge amount of anger in germany and it's festering because they have history has face it. we live in surreal times a short time ago even imagining a negotiated end to the tensions on the korean peninsula was a flight into fancy but here we are this is becoming a foreign policy victory for trump. alice stein is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos remember wolf it was dismissed it like a million pieces and my complicity is still going on no phil saviano maybe. you know john. the only palestinians who gets the most help from its jerusalem
11:03 pm
counterparts i don't think this is about those who. vision good enough only could give us. and the earth his office not his job to this lady of the most of this god i know if you continue in that doesn't seem to do more commitments also don't piss off. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to be preached. to the right to be press was like before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters and know how. i should.
11:04 pm
a few hours before the game the stuttgart hooligans and ultras gather in an informal club that only group members can enter not even the police can get in without a warrant. if you have. everyone scouting forms for you. it is a game of one corner very trying to avoid. visit a class on game i did some in chicago. undress is a veteran who are going in stuttgart a distinguished member of the group he started fighting back in the eighty's he's one of the few who aren't afraid to show their faces. because if you can specify a gun that we're talking about this is this because khaled and i was and we were.
11:05 pm
gob cyclists mean to go they going and they were annoyed said it was a sin and we had taken that so we go in and overboard like this but then the high end up at us i would say oh this is what we can cops and that's. when saddam going on and when or if i just run just up on the outside it's not and. that if you're on the fence in the full force and so on our cars will get on a similar i was and talk i was made stein adults in the. missing and that being somebody of some children doesn't this fall so the as to close if was partially going to have worried me could muster up. as he was on this sunday's thing and i jumped him a tough kid and he by his by the way my lingo my mother saw that i was i became on this decision was wrong and i just go for it this is a strong agreement stylist's. side and side a partition on its side if i knew it up we took him from us this model so most
11:06 pm
adults want to come. mr goodrich angst we're not done describing just brute. than i'll be shown for the job so i'm both. lost in this is named unsigned mole fun for me and infirmed. rule will get done follows from the start. he just bought a star to invent or to give it to. if. you want certain all stopped once and. then that. will be. on this side. and so forth it can double it so that it will toss. so depending godlessness foil
11:07 pm
on children kalu coffee and. that's what i will randomly say listen going to pop tarts and sound from this noise mill wouldn't. you also assume that i'm not in the scene you're lying in which the money going to can live on the phone in the months on the field lloyd money which in which you fly on monday to flow into the building supply you don't do you know develops a from you here on. the shelf in his or her food t.v. a good muslim on sharon to show circumvents living. to mush a lot is fun but i would class on my show assistant on so many hicks constantly got
11:08 pm
to. put it's all. sorted. out for them looking like again you know one of the top school people want to give all those school to me about. a month before the still got game good german police visited the headquarters of one who'd been gang to interrogate its leaders they learned that a large fight was being planned ever since then all over the country police have watched fans and hooligans closely on match days. before with a cell phone now that he's in the internet to my contacts and they doing in hawaii which is as anonymous as i can be and the secret is they can make it but. again the
11:09 pm
attraction is that like simon and klein and stuff. about bullying it's about coming out on top it's about who is the bravest the maddest the most organized the most violent the most well trained. and it becomes like almost. warfare. it's so commonplace to think defeated in. the main bridge in gothenburg right here and it's well located because you can see it whenever you travel the main bridge painting you know. for example what will happen if. you know the city will come and face paint over it. of course that's a good they will have
11:10 pm
a reaction i live in iligan life twenty four seven no doubts. but of course extra matches if we have the shans to get a fight may be ill thought out a bit tell you right much itself but we'll depends on the match also on the type of fight that you can get in so. hopefully get a fight google under the are very big give rivals a loss we always want to get a shot to put them in the place. we don't have a good relationship with the cops of course to try to lock us up to try to stop our fights. close.
11:11 pm
oh. good luck soon. when you're in the fight when you're in doubt so when it's on to explain how you feel about it but it's on the other bull rush. crennel in oryol rage briefing at all the most is mixed up the one.
11:12 pm
i'm. really much no. the problems in sweden they don't deal with going on the lawn toilets. really can't understand it because they know we have a room so you know sweden scene is trying to exclude you know of course a key to reach out there in the fields but still be don't they don't overdo it when you knock down you know don't love stand stomping and jumping on people. and they know that as well sort of i really don't get it. if you would a cane one of them it's all thing would have skated it would be nice to do to do a crawl called orbison polling or something i mean movie killing each other over there we didn't want to. vote so far or killed so yeah it was. nice everyone says a frightful fight you know and you got to get promises to get checks and they are. you know when to fight then i mean sometimes it's kind of old to stop yourself and
11:13 pm
i catch this guy you know sometimes my teeth of course some of us don't but if a fifty mix or perhaps. because i never see this but i think. this is really. just. from six looks like it's. going to the sense that that's. a given for the field so that. if.
11:14 pm
something was most likely. to come before the next one of what else then you think of the you can implement. it. but even then it can make a view of the message that you belong. on but. also you have a proof enough they can use a bomb. just a little. i would draw under way in a fight a really beautiful. of course i want to keep them here. i don't want to follow up
11:15 pm
to be a family of four. for me and my kids don't want to be all that if it's between being a predator or prey of course i want them to be introduced as. oh oh. i'm. moving in islam is a beast if you don't i mean evolves is constantly evolving but quite what happened in the future i really don't know the fact that it's still news proves that they haven't sold the never solved another never saw.
11:16 pm
a little less used to be the end of the film outside the system of truth and something funny but i think it's just that my life was when i left that i suspect some. markets and i think a lot of it i left me. a little slow on the first so i leave this league out of the book slow. me down and. see. you for something.
11:17 pm
every of those. kids that. was a little bit of a gentle have a difficult time for. this years on live apart from their i don't. know how shameful i'm going to go on a budget edition from the. official position of western countries makes it possible for all opposition groups to use the chemical weapon and. pretend that this is the fault of human governments because in this situation like today the western countries.
11:18 pm
do not suite for any investigation they assign the for the responsibility of. the body. in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox swiss customs are here permanently all the site is controlled by as a monday impose the opening times for. the possibilities from these all plus the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe masterpieces by artists like pecan so and modigliani i can't boards and sold inside this warehouse that's where the report comes in it covers a deals with jar naturally discreet commercially discreet step but also discreet because they can see. fraud. some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets
11:19 pm
nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport system you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only is it the world's black box of the art business. i. i i. i i i i. i i. i.
11:20 pm
was. that. they were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this of on going on as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used in the stories that shaped the week witnesses give testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma but some still refused to listen to. the leaders of north and south korea if not for the first time in over a decade to open a new chapter in the put into this history. and the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations even though the careers of many russian athletes may have already been destroyed by.
11:21 pm
great to have you with us my name's neil harvey and this is the weekly here on r.t. international. locals including doctors from the syrian town of tumor have testified this week at the u.n. backed chemical watchdog headquarters in the netherlands saying that they witness no signs of an alleged chemical attack on april seventh r.t. arabic located a boy who was seen in an unverified white helmets video showing the supposed aftermath of a toxic strike the boy gave evidence to the o.p.c. w. but not everybody wanted to hear what he had to say party's my guest you have explained. when these videos emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed dozens of civilians and astaire's that the us had regime has previously used in
11:22 pm
chemical attacks the assad regime has used the same yellow gas canisters the n.s.c. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was used they must have had solid evidence you don't just launch a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong you know we have all. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the exhaust was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water neither did the doctors see anything. on the seventh of april i was in the
11:23 pm
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 in hailing smoke and the only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms with. the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and then sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from a poisonous substance is this isn't helping western journalists the leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when you can you know to not a monologue if you don't understand normal language let's try a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so
11:24 pm
russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here is the onset about it we came here willingly we demanded the red cross and ours to come here. wrong in truth there isn't a right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the
11:25 pm
reason that the boy had to fly over. yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has scientists told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught that you mentioned in the russian press release that somebody here was going to be present who was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. more and more it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today are the evidence the white helmets feel is fake i don't know maybe i missed something but. in one
11:26 pm
ear out the other with no pause in between we discussed this with independent research and journalist for nasa bailey has been to do more herself to collect people's testimonies. when i spoke to people in junior dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred meters away from the alleged attack they were also all saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i was shocked the levels to which western media has stooped over this alleged event and the moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that was saying from western media i mean to accuse
11:27 pm
russia. basically exploiting a child in years thing. of eleven year old house and after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that if o.p.c. double eve find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed affirmation around the site before a.b.c. w could get there. the joint western strikes in response to
11:28 pm
that alleged chemical attack appear to have strengthened the bonds between two of the leaders behind them donald trump and emanuel micron and judging by the body language just check this out during the french president's visit to washington this week seems like a bromance is brewing. messy . thank you. i. like him it's a great honor great honor that you are but we do have a very special relationship the very delicate. little piece we have to make up for years for. this thing was pretty special but the french president also highlighted the blossoming friendship by giving trump a symbolic sampling taken from a world war one side of france where u.s. marines that helped to repel a german offensive in one thousand eight hundred however just several days later it
11:29 pm
was revealed the tree might have been removed twenty years is dug deep joking the tree must have been an unfair trade deal for trump or even blaming russia for the disappearance whether the tree was actually removed or not the gift was certainly a new take on the bond between the french and us presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macro on how the hanging out of the economy mojo and as a global politics and sharing that country the bone to get involved to get. the french and american presidents all sort of sweet lou is holding hands on this being that second date even to the french style kiss monochrome as the last foreign leader to be treated to a full state visit to the u.s. funded from not even a special relationship willing to resume a gold the full state visit and she is the one that's gotten all this hand-holding
11:30 pm
business but these grave presidents have forced their relationship. there in. the chair enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace a couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but also in the western alliance and. these the cheese eating surrender monkeys of the iraq all alone from both my own post to hard to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars worth of myside to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian warehouses was aside this relationship looks pretty deep strange from the outside in the night of the barrio until a day. you won't be surprised by the length with today's two does not call the two nations told the global security and here they are burying gold
11:31 pm
is lost in the gulf and apparently other european leaders will not cross the trunk . because of his influence over the already one pretty sunny day based adoptive french accent when he takes us to send them in to send him home as president over the middle. they run. them play live and tell us. because they want. to know the least. they have. now apart from the french president german chancellor angela merkel is also paid a visit to washington although the interactions between herself and they were significantly more formal the iran nuclear deal that was one of the main issues discussed with the u.s. threatening to scrap plant agreement political analysts side mustapha because
11:32 pm
chesham thinks friends might be coming around to america's way of thinking europe as a whole is not the trio nations in your office personally friends even more than germany and britain is trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to you on your shoes but the rest of your is a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on iran for its missile groups in all i think so this shows the europe is not much willing to work with. friday saw historic meeting take place the first summit between the leaders of
11:33 pm
north and south korea in more than a decade. i . i i. i i i. i. i. i
11:34 pm
i. i i. i. i. well after hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warm relations the leaders announce they seek the full denuclearize ation of the peninsula they've also to stop all hostile actions against each other and to gradually reduce their weapons arsenals additionally they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty. donald trump praised the progress made between the two sides and following decades of tension seems like a final peace treaty could actually be on the horizon human rights attorney eric surat can believe that the two koreas are indeed ready. i think what we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said south
11:35 pm
africa history and hope could live if 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 korea create the frame to give their own steps in self-determination then the us as a as much smaller role to play if we can agree that and hold them to the notion that ending the hostile policy creating a peace treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. the russian whistleblower the center of claims of russian state sponsored doping as fail to stun by these allegations when testifying in court will explain all after this short break.
11:36 pm
little. pearl. lemme walk on the idea that dropping bombs brings police hawks forcing you to fight the battles they don't believe you saw spread to tell you the beach gossip the tabloids by files of the most important is that they. talk about telling you are
11:37 pm
not cool enough and that's the by product little. things all the hawks that we along with our lives walker greg. people have been killed in the latest palestinian until the patient rallies in gaza palestinian health officials say that hundreds more were left injured during friday's protests they were the latest in a series of planned mass demonstrations that have been dubbed the great march of return. that.
11:38 pm
it was good that it was. the right time for you know. this is another injury that came just right now there have been severe injuries in the head and in the legs and arms were not in the band in the post minutes we received at least ten people with severe injuries to the stomach and head the ambulances are still carrying hundreds of injured people to the hospitals there is a lack of medicine and medical equipment in the hospitals and they are crowded bob so as you see this is another ambulance just came just right now. from my neck that new defense and as you see this ambulance has at least four palestinians that have been injured what happened right now to the fence is that at least two thousand
11:39 pm
tolleson in protesters and try to interfere and break that the fence and what happened is that israeli forces and every addict there violently and they started to shoot yes i know these palestinian protesters were broke the fence that according to the palestinian minister has at least ten twenty. sorry if you're going to. let their dad any minute. the address this taking place near a security fence which surrounds the land palestinians claim was stolen from the protesters have been met with a heavy handed response from the israeli army in just four weeks at least forty five palestinians have been killed and thousands more injured the un and e.u. have condemned the israeli response to the protests. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to use deadly force against their fellow human beings even when
11:40 pm
they present no threat in the contests of an occupation such as garza killings resulting from the use of force may also constitute willful killings which are a great breach of the fourth geneva convention these really troops however insist that they only open fire at the main instigators of trouble who throw stones or molotov cocktails or at those who attempt to breach the fence however the non-lethal methods used by the i.d.f. pose a significant threat for example sponge tipped rubber bullets the latest version of which is said to be harder and heavier than previous ones or they've been linked to severe injuries and even death meanwhile an israeli human rights group recently released a video that reportedly showed a group of soldiers in the west bank discussing the use of live ammunition.
11:41 pm
ah. well we asked the israeli army to comment on the video and it said that the behavior seen is not in accordance with what is expected of i.d.f. soldiers but it added the commander at the time had told a soul just to act professionally the i.d.f. also promised to revise relevant procedures. young palestinians have been among those killed in the demonstrations one incident was caught on camera it showed a teenager shot in the head an israeli sniper last week the boy's father says his son posed no threat to the soldiers but an israeli general believes that it's the price to be paid to ensure the safety of the country. are you sure you are below the low i said mohammed was three hundred meters away from the fence and even if he
11:42 pm
was right next to it he was at a peaceful demonstration he was just a child was he carrying a missile launcher was he shooting at the soldier who killed him why did they kill him i'll tell you what mohammed did wrong mohammed's fault was that he was demanding his rights to migrate storage sometimes one shooter small body and you intend to his arm or shoulder it goes even higher in the picture is not a pretty picture of you if that's the price that we have to pay that reserve the safety and quality of life of the residents of the state of israel and that's the price. and finally this hour the former head of moscow's anti doping lab gordon drudging koff a key witness in the russian doping scandal has failed to confirm a number of allegations he made against the country's athletes this came during his testimony to the court of arbitration for sport in february the court upheld appeals of twenty eight russian athletes who've been banned for doping but it's only now giving some of its reasons what he's done after my colleague andrew farmer
11:43 pm
to discuss the latest. byrne first and foremost in the past few years that we've seen the scandal and revelation say it has been established that pretty much every single athlete in russia dog so it seems it was common knowledge at least that they had a special drug cocktail brewed performance that the swapped the dirty urine samples for clean ones through some hole in a lab wall so a lot of was said and was said by a man named grigori roche and of so he was the key witness he put forward the allegations but in the in the case basically during that hearing the court of arbitration for sports he revealed that many of the stuff that he said was best circumstantial first and foremost he said that he never actually administered the said cocktail which he claims he concocted to himself he says that he never saw anyone administering these said steroid cocktail he didn't know how the cocktail
11:44 pm
was smuggled from russia abroad because well you know to be used in an international championship it would have to cross the border and also he's never been a witness to the mysterious you know you're in the swamp dirty to clean one he did say that his allegations came from basically talking to his colleagues but that was it when it comes to these allegations and in the past two years his words were taken at face value i should say no one questioned them and broaching of himself was propelled to fame even starring in an oscar winning documentary about the doping problem in russia i was helping to facilitate what was a was deliberate employees in the sport's history was aware of the existence of a russian doping system. up little chicks.
11:45 pm
a chunk of claims were the foundation. richard mclaren's report which was then used for a blanket ban on russian athletes and he was speaking to was an e in this court case what did he say well indeed sir richard mclaren a canadian law who basically pulled put the burden on his shoulders to compile a massive report on the scale of the doping problem in russia testifying in front of the same judge being cross-examined as well he said that basically while he did not shy away from mentioning athletes by name in the report in no way he said he meant to you know assume that they were guilty of something so basically being mentioned in his doping report did not mean he says that those athletes were complicit he also revealed he couldn't basically you couldn't explain justify to the court of arbitration for sport why he trusted roger and why he never questioned his allegations also he refused to provide the names of other witnesses of you know
11:46 pm
of turn it of sources so to speak he used to put together the reports so the good news for those thirty say athletes that had their appeals up held but they would say well look ok that is good news but the damage as far as we're concerned has already been done to our names well indeed because what happened back in february twenty eighth russian athletes they used to be banned for life they had been banned for life from participating in the olympics which means they were stripped of their medal as the future held nothing for them from that point no more achievement see have. revoked and it happened literally a few days before the kickoff of the olympic games in south korea none of them were invited to participate so there you have it you know mud sticks. thanks for staying with us here at all t. international the very latest news headlines coming your way in just over half an hour.
11:47 pm
or so. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to try to be for us this is what we're before for you no more can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of my house. back this should.
11:48 pm
welcome to world apart after receiving a nobel peace prize just a few years ago the organization for the provocation of chemical weapons now finds itself at the center of a major military standoff which some theory major grass into world war three can this obscure scientific organization task without holding a major international norm do its job without itself falling victim to geo political wrangling well to discuss that i'm now joined by
11:49 pm
a former un chemical weapons expert in iraq dr it's great to talk to you thank you very much for coming over this morning. now just a few years ago very few people are parts from a narrow circle of specialist even knew what the o.p.c. w.y. say they only started to appear in global media after famous or infamous barack obama's statement on the red line if it weren't for that statement do you think we would be discussing the use of chemical weapons today. the point is that right now we see that. the special position for western countries in. response ability for the use of chemical weapons to iraqi government. syrian government. makes it possible for all opposition groups to use the chemical weapon to pretend. this is the fault of syrian government.
11:50 pm
because in this situation like today. western countries they do not wait for any investigation they assign the responsibility and the punish for the chemical weapon use but when you say they punish both in this case with the latest strikes and in the previous case with the alleged attack on hunch a hole in. the response by the united states by its allies was definitely illegal from their point of view of international law but it was also a very limited and it's also quite difficult to understand what kind of military objective it could have pursued do you think the point of using these chemical weapons use scare is the point political or is it military is it to advance a military objectives or simply to you know malign syria even more you know we would not see any any real. military gains in these strikes so
11:51 pm
this is really politically sure if this would be technical or military or something . it would require more than just accusations based on videos from the internet or social network but what's the point and i clearly they don't like president assad i mean they made that position clear seventy years ago so what's the point of pushing these ratline that they supposedly want to protect themselves i mean it's clear to understand from a tactical and strategic point of view what could be gained from that of course. syrian government is an important issue right now we see that government with the support of russia and the iranians are gaining more. all syrian territory that was. state control previously and
11:52 pm
who are all the actors in this area the understand there will be. everything and they would like to get their foot in the door to make sure that they still will be viable buyable players in from what i understand russia iran turkey de try to engage them in various negotiating for months it's not like i mean there is a talk about having at the government of national reconciliation in syria there is talk about holding new elections so there are some political venues that they can pursue and to the credit of both the russians and the syrians i'm interested by to hear but still i think they allowed many of the militant groups to leave the area which is by my account unprecedented in the more than history of warfare so these people are actually treated pretty decently and they. yes but you have
11:53 pm
to understand. russians and syrians. bunches of opposition to leave. areas. you have to understand these are not just oppositions into syrian sources there was about seven hundred. western advisors. together with the opposition of course we're. finishing. the opposition area so there will be a risks some western advisers also will be hit from the intensity of allegations i think perhaps the goals that they are pursuing out far bigger deal not off not only the syrian government i mean in diet point of view
11:54 pm
it's not legitimate at all but i do you think our goals go father in terms of diligent in my eyes in both russia iran and perhaps even turkey you can see that. it's a chain of events after. russia told the joint investigative mechanism we got a sudden statement. who said that russia. responsibility for the use of chemical weapons in syria that was kind of shown but that mean that if there were similar statements that effect. but. she never did that. in her predecessor. the. united nations certainly blamed the russia for a very high civilian for supporting the son who used the chemical weapons but the direct blame in russia for the use of chemical weapons in syria there was very
11:55 pm
strange also very shocking because russia had very very high reputation in the world of chemical weapons let me ask you specifically about the role that the c.w. can play in all of that because unlike national governments unlike national delegations it is actually constrained by its own convention it has to follow the procedure all of these be seen as following the procedure. how much does god allow for political influences to be exerted on the. scientist and servant question. w. was. invented organization that would be purely technical. but . the structure or for office w. allow some politics so. consists of conference of state parties hundred ninety two countries the executive council and the technical
11:56 pm
secretariat there are people who do the technical work so inspectors. technical assistance and so administration administration but they do the work. executive council consists of forty one. state parties and that's exactly the area where politics could be brought the last events especially the situation is all bring in. a situation in the use of chemical weapons in syria brought more politics in the situation the difference from my point every year between politics and science is that politics starts with a conclusion and science is supposed to be open and it when you go out to investigate something you should not have any preconceived notion about who might have done it. how does it balance itself out when it comes to the actual
11:57 pm
investigation so for example when scientists go out and collect the samples do they have enough freedom to investigators samples and to deliver the scientific opinion on that yet very good question but let me show how the politics are digital from the technical issues. when russia. suggests that decision executive council to support the mission of w. in syria the western countries. actually blog decision but she. wrote the request to. w. . mission specters to do if and w. did that so this is politics versus technical so how technically this work is performed the specter scam to. use of chemical weapons
11:58 pm
and they collect samples but they also work with the people they work with hospitals they talk with witnesses they see those people who. were admitted to the hospitals and take their biological samples and all those samples they brought to headquarters. in the hague and. from the hague the samples are sent to the designated laboratories and there are twenty two. in the world at the moment and they analyze those samples. did have probes intelligent use of chemical weapons in syria before and i talked last year it's you had the russian envoy to the organization official going and he told me that some of those problems were stopped by the people by the specialist who tend to confound the friends of syria group and that group obviously is very
11:59 pm
eager to see mr assad out many of the samples and many of the testimonies were provided by turkey which is also not the neutral player in that war so if how can you have so much confidence in the process right now when in the past it delivered the results that russia clearly didn't agree with that is a very good question but. look you can trust to the results. only in the case. to. according to the chain of custody. that means. an inspector. came to the site. put it in the vial. not just close it but sealed it with a special seal. be broken and then those samples are delivered to. their opened in controlled.
12:00 am
environments. records are kept this is exactly. now already have i think a very clear in the western media to suggest that the russia and syria used this initial delay in the ability of the o.p.c. doubly inspectors to access the scene that they used this specific lee to clean the area from a technical from a scientific point of view can the o.p.c. w. inspectors establish why that the scene was tampered with because even if they deliver clean samples in this case clean from the russian point of view the west i think would easily come out and say that. there is nothing there simply because the russians killed all the evidence. yes but in the case of. actually there were not. specters who came into the samples yeah turkish side had
12:01 am
provided them with lots of inconsistent. mechanisms to. after. use of chemical weapons in tashi whom it was possible to analyze the samples and. you think that russia can rely on that kind of argument is there not really but the point. three. well yes you can clean the area but the use of chemical weapons and remember chemical weapons is not the one you take a poison injected into one person so you have to. eat a whole area to make the mass killing of people so that's chemical weapons eat that so the whole area should be should be contaminated soil. building constructions and. a lot of the
12:02 am
a lot of the. structures in the to clean it really clean it you have to probably demolish maybe couple of. blocks not even couple but maybe five ten blocks of the city you have to demolish and take it out so it's impossible to do that but it's not just samples this is witnesses this is hospitals this is a victim you know there is a narrative of western narrative about two and there we already see seen that in the western paper suggesting that some of the witnesses have been under pressure from their side government anyway so it's going to have to take a very short break now but he'll be back in just a few moments stay tuned. join
12:03 am
me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you. thank.
12:04 am
you. thank. you. welcome back to worlds apart with anton old pinafore my u.n. chemical weapons expert in iraq. the syrian file is obviously not the only one that the a b c w is wrestling with this cripple case is still going through the motions
12:05 am
that they organization in terms of the procedural options open to them. is it looking better for russia or the u.k. at this point the longer the u.k. officials keep the results of investigation in secret so the more. capability they help to blame russia without any supporting evidence. the question is why this happens the point is first we see the right to know. that over seventeen different versions of how scruples were poisoned we see how. they determine where the chemical was produced and they also lied about their country of origin but they still continue doing that and i think i correct me if i'm wrong but i would think that if there's
12:06 am
any hope for russia to sort of constrain that it would be through using the o.p.c. w. makan is now my understanding and i may be wrong on that is that the u.k. from the very beginning wanted to create an impression of the o.p.c. w.-a being involved but it did not follow the formal of that it was through the technical secretariat rather through the through the formal procedure prescribed by the convention why would they do that and why would the o.p.c. w. agree to be engaged in such an unconventional way through the technical secretary at the rather than through you know challenge inspections and what have you. well. step by step first of all why do not it start to to. bring to politics. you first of all you have to understand actually killing one person is a criminal case so it's not the use of chemical weapons like the brother of.
12:07 am
military grade the nerve agent directly on the territory rather of compassion in the literal for north korea it was killed with vieques that was military great agent not the chalk was never proved to be chemical agent and if you take. w. who considered in two thousand and eleven to said there is no confirmation that this is chemical. knew to agree to agent. it was in the interests of the u.k. to engage the o p c w that that then you can blame not just in the criminal case but you can blame the perpetrators in the use of chemical weapons which is much more aggravated position absolutely and actually disses wrong because. rather a kitchen he was killed with the expert nobody used. in this case so right now
12:08 am
they start to use but they didn't call for inspection. use of chemical weapons they invited opus w. inspection even not the spectrum but their representatives. as a technical assistance and the only question that they put before the people was. if the chemical that we determined. to be used. as a poison is correct or not so people. they checked this out yes this is correct the structure of the chemical and eat but that allowed the u.k. to state the confirmed their suspicions yes russia which was they were already called out on that but i saw you say in a previous interview that it was
12:09 am
a mistake on the part of russia not to pursue article nine of the convention in a more forceful way do you think russia still has the procedural means to pressure the u.k. to provide all the evidence that it has because my understanding of why they didn't pursue the formal wrote this is because they would have had to provide all the you know intelligence information all the classified data in order to call for let's say inspection by using the technical secretary they don't really have to provide anything is that right well. according to. the article none. there is a procedure that you can request the state party and you can exchange information and consult with the body if you do not have. respect or answer you can go through the executive council if you do not get this abstract through council you can go up to the conference of state parties do you think russia should call for
12:10 am
this cause i believe that russia right now. according to the procedure so russia requests that information from the u.k. it didn't get the satisfied so right now it is in position to make the same request . executive council no exact to council wouldn't vote for that so they would just. transfer the request to the u.k. and you can provide the answer. of council which will be transferred to russia them so russia has to use. procedure that would show that russia full of international. weapons as is the bureaucracy better understand your correctly who pursues the bureaucracy. full of all the procedures of the convention unlike the kingdom now in one of your previous interviews he also said
12:11 am
that the very categorical nature of britain's accusations against russia left it with no room for maneuver essentially london has no other way but to double down on its initial narrative regardless of how conflicting be evidence is and. i think that was perhaps a theme in our discussion on syria but and i'm going to ask you again do you think any amount of evidence any amount of testimony and due process following the rules is going to how to you this issue in a way that would be fair to all sides because from my position from my point of view what we have is that politico wrangling yet again nobody's really interested apart that perhaps for russia in establishing the scientific fact that's exactly true russia. really interested in the joint investigation and russia for it why. this is. a
12:12 am
territory no russian citizen russia according to the vienna convention on the relations has the right to communicate with russian citizens in any case but the united kingdom doesn't do that so no. details of the investigation i would like you to note one thing actually the recently. general director of w was interview. we interviewed by pranks and he said very interesting thing that was the question why not which agent was determined. composed only in the blood. it was. supposed to be decomposed. met the bullies and.
12:13 am
but they found decomposed in their blood in your blood but not in the blood or who was exposed. or exported to the chemical agent so that was very strange because it is not clear how it happened a fresh agent was. not in the not the first inconsistency in these or any previous investigations i mean the very nature of the allegation that teresa mayes government made against russia i mean they are accusing us of lawful use of force by the russian state against the united kingdom this is an unprecedented allegation but when they made a decision to go ahead of that i soon that they have also made a calculation that they have what it takes to win this battle of narratives i suppose that they presume that they have and i france and i have enough. political ammunition to get what they want the right.
12:14 am
part of this battle but i. i was told that if you see a dead body and a person running with a knife around his body it doesn't mean the person you're trying to apply common sense to the situation when i think it's it's no longer play couple years all sad that the vienna convention is nothing to the u.k. authorities they couldn't care less about it is true but you have to understand the world is not clear right now or on the u.k. . several more western countries a lot of countries are watching this situation and they make a conclusion that actually any of them can undergo the same situation when they can be bloody blamed in the use of chemical weapons and they can distract with missiles . and right now they see how russia is performing in this situation and
12:15 am
they really have to understand who they are going to be for in this situation moral . let me ask you one more question about the questionable claims that the russian side has advanced i'm sure you're heard the russian foreign minister statement about this we slavs discovery of the bees that toxin in some samples as well as speculations that the script symptoms are more consistent with that poisoning rather than over chunks those claims were directly contradicted by the o.p.c. w. which sat it was discovered and controlled rather than the actual samples do you think the bees at stories closed by now and do you think it was appropriate on the russian side to present the information in a way that was presented well to be frank with you i believe that the explanation. is quite satisfactory they can do special control samples to make sure that
12:16 am
it is. determined by both laboratories and they know exactly what. the russians were right to use the confidential information that they i assume received through some intelligence sources in such a way that would put the o.p.c. w.-o. on the spot because russia does need the goodwill and called peroration a neutrality of of the international body wasn't undermining that goodwill. right now russia is in the situation without any evidence so what should i. should do. the game with russia how to present a loser from the beginning that russia is supposed to use any keys any facts any evidence to protect itself and to fight in this particular game what you're saying is that desperate times call for desperate measures stopped i was
12:17 am
going to have to leave it there i really appreciate your being with us this morning and i invite our viewers to keep this conversation going in our social media pages as for me hope to see you again same place same time here on worlds apart of. the put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to be rich. to going to be this is what. real people are. interested in the water.
12:18 am
elliston is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos remember wolf it was dismissed it looks like you know. this isn't my cup of tea is going out the study hall maybe. the old shot wound up just over they should be the only palestinians who gets the most help from his jerusalem counterparts i don't think there's some of those who endure the location not only to give us a book and the earth is all of your knowledge gather this lady in the muscle that you had i'm going to continue muslims you know do more commitments also don't piss off.
12:19 am
same wrong. ball just don't call. me lol just to say power just comes to the ticket and it gains from it because the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
12:20 am
it was. like. we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this live on the phone as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. in the stories that shaped the week witnesses gave testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma but some refused to listen. the leaders of north and south korea meet for the first ever time in sixty five years on the southern side of the border to open a new chapter in the peninsula's history. the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations despite the careers of many russian athletes may have been destroyed by his claims.
12:21 am
this is the weekly news round up at r.t. international coming to you live from moscow i'm kate partridge thank you for joining us. doctors and local people from the syrian town of duma testified this week at the un backed chemical watchdog headquarters in the netherlands they claim they witnessed no signs of the alleged chemical attack on april the seventh our sister channel r.t. arabic located a boy seen in an unverified white helmets video claiming to show the aftermath of the talks that strike he also gave evidence to the un p.c. but not everyone welcomed what he had to say as artie's would have guessed the of explains. when these videos emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed
12:22 am
dozens of civilians and astaire's that the us had regime has previously used chemical attacks the assad regime has used the same yellow gas canisters the n.s.c. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was used they must have had solid evidence you don't just launch a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong you know they have all right we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the source was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water
12:23 am
neither did the doctors see anything. 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 in hailing smoke and the only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms with. the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and then sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from a poisonous substances this isn't helping western journalists their leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when
12:24 am
you put your most you're not a minor if you don't understand normal language let's try a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here's the but if we came here willingly we demanded the red cross allow us to come here. wrong then truth there isn't the right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise
12:25 am
a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the reason that the boy had to fly over the yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has scientists told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught though you mentioned in a russian press release that somebody here was going to be present who was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. more and more it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today are the evidence
12:26 am
the white helmets feel is fake i don't know maybe i missed something but. in one ear out the other with no pause in between. the independent research of n s a barely who's recently returned from duma condemned the western media reports. when i spoke to people in junior dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred meters away from the alleged attack they were also all saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i'm shocked at the levels to which western media has stooped over this alleged event and the moral
12:27 am
bankruptcy and degeneracy that was same from western media i mean to accuse russia of basically exploiting a child in years. of eleven year old has and after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that if o.p.c. double eve find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed affirmation around the site
12:28 am
before a.b.c. w could get there. while the western air strikes that came in response to the alleged attack appear to have strengthen the bonds between donald trump and emmanuel mccall and judging by the body language during the french president's visit to washington this week it seemed a bromance is brewing. many people. think you. like him a lot it's a great honor great honor that you are but we do have a very special relationship very good. we have to make room for years for. all my crew also highlighted the blossoming friendship by giving trump a symbolic opes of playing it was taken from a world war one site in france where u.s. marines helped propel the german offensive in one thousand nine hundred eighteen.
12:29 am
however a few days later the tree has apparently been removed twenty years is dug deeper joking that the trade must have been an unfair trade deal for trungpa or even blaming russia for the disappearance whether the tree was removed or not the gift was sent me a new take on the bond between the french and us presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macro on how to be hanging out the quality mojo and as a global politics and sharing that country grown together to take. the french and american presidents also sweet lou is holding hands and this being that second date but even though the french style kiss macro is the last foreign leader to be treated to a full state visit to the u.s. funded from not even special relationship willing to resume a gold the full state visit and she is the one that started all this hand-holding
12:30 am
business but these grave presidents have forged their relationship. flicked the cheer enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace in a couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but also in the western alliance. resist the cheese eating surrender monkeys of the iraq on loan from god and my former push to hard to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars worth of missiles to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian warehouses was inside this relationship looks pretty strange from the outside in the night of the barrio in philadelphia eagles told. he won't be surprised by the length of what he said there is to. not call the two nations told them global security by nanae are burying gold is lost in the government that apparently
12:31 am
other european leaders will not create the wrong. because of their influence over the already one but it doesn't take based inductive french accent to the way he does us the sentiment tends to tell almost the same bond over the middle east. money issues are very run down in a way and many of them like i'm willing to tell us and our show because that. blow this. way have. well apart from macro and german chancellor angela merkel also paid a visit to washington though the interactions between her and trump were significantly more formal the iran nuclear deal was one of the main issues discussed with the u.s. threatening to scrap plea agreement political analysts i need my stuff
12:32 am
a hoss chesham things though friends money coming round to americans thinking europe isn't the trio nations in your office personally friends even more than germany and is trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to you was not the only issue but the rest of your is a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on iran for its missile and regional i think so this shows the europe is not must be willing to work with. on friday for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea met on the southern side of the border in
12:33 am
a turning point for the peninsula is history.
12:34 am
well after hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warm relations between the two countries the leaders announced late seeing the full denuclearize ation of the peninsula they also vowed to stop all hostile actions against each other and to gradually reduce their weapons and they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty. well donald trump praised the progress made between the two signs following more than six decades of tension a juror ball peace could finally be on the horizon human rights lawyer eric sorkin believes the two koreas and now ready. i think what we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said in south
12:35 am
africa history and hope could live if 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 can create the frame to give their own steps and self-determination then the us as a as much smaller role to play if we can agree that and hold them to the notion that ending the hostile policy creating a peace treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. the russian whistleblower at the center of the alleged state sponsored typing scandal fails to stand by his allegations in course more on that after the break.
12:36 am
we lived in surreal times a short time ago even imagining a negotiated end to the tensions on the korean peninsula was a flight into fancy but here we are this is becoming a foreign policy victory for trying. i've played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside out and. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch pull the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending two hundred twenty million on one player. so it's an experience like nothing else i want to do because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game played great so one more transfer. and thinks
12:37 am
this minute. welcome back four people have been killed in the latest palestinian anti occupation rallies in gaza palestinian health officials say almost nine hundred also when challenged during friday's protests they were in the they were the latest in a series of planned mass demonstrations course the great march of attack.
12:38 am
oh. no. no no. this is another injury that's came just right now there have been severe injuries in the head and in the legs that has been out about him in the post minutes we received at least ten people with severe injuries to the stomach and head the ambulances are still carrying hundreds of injured people to the hospitals there is a lack of medicine and medical equipment in the hospitals and they're crowded bob so as you see this is another ambulance just came just right now. from my neck that new defense and as you see this the ambulance has at least and for palestinians that have been injured what happened right now to the fence is that at least two
12:39 am
thousand palestinian protesters and try to interfere and break that the fence and what happened is those are you forced is. i reacted there violently and they started to see what i meant these palestinian protesters were broke the fact. that according to palestinian minister brown at least there are twenty palestinians are if you are critical good music and they can clear their dad any minute. the demonstrations are taking place near a security fence which surrounds land the palestinians claim was stolen from them the protesters have been met by heavy response from the israeli army in four weeks at least forty five palestinians have been killed and thousands injured the united nations and the you have condemned israel's response to the protests. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to use deadly force against fellow human beings even when
12:40 am
they present no threat in the context of an occupation such as gaza killings resulting from the armed groups who use of force may also constitute willful killings which are a grave breach of the fourth geneva convention. however the israeli troops insist they only open fire at the main instigators of trouble who throw stones or wallets of cocktails or those who attempt to breach the fence yet the non-lethal methods used by the i.d.f. also pose a significant stress the latest version of sponge rubber bullets are said to be harder and heavier than previous ones they have been linked to deaths and severe injuries while an israeli human rights group recently released a video this reportedly shows a group of soldiers in the west bank discussing the use of live ammunition. ah ok. on.
12:41 am
the side of. the. r.t. i asked the israeli army to comment on the video they said this behavior is not in accordance with what says spectate of i.d.f. soldiers but actually added the commander at the time had told his soldiers to act professionally the i.d.f. also promised to revise relevant procedures. young palestinians have been among those killed in the demonstrations one incident last week was caught on camera showing a teenager shot in the head by an israeli sniper the boy's father says his son posed no threat to the soldiers an israeli general believes it's the price to be paid to ensure the safety of the country. below the low i said mohammed was three hundred meters away from the fence and even if he was right next
12:42 am
to it he was a peaceful demonstration he was just a child was he carrying a missile launcher was he shooting at the soldier who killed him why did they kill him i'll tell you what mohammed did wrong mohammed's fault was that he was demanding his rights to migrate storage sometimes shooters small body and you intend to his arm or shoulder like there's even a picture is not a pretty picture of you if that's the price i'm have to pay to reserve the safety and quality of life of the resident state of israel for a living that's the price. it's been revealed the former head of moscow's anti doping lab gregory rajan cove has failed to confirm a number of allegations made against russian athletes the key witness in the alleged state sponsored doping scandal gave testimony five four slingin january to the court of arbitration for sport in february the court upheld the appeals of twenty eight russian athletes banned for don't think but it's only now given some of its reasons r.t.c.
12:43 am
goshdarn of join my colleague andrew farmer in the studio to discuss the developments. byrne first and foremost in the past few years that we've seen the scandal unravel a should say it has been established that pretty much every single athlete in russia dops or it seems it was common knowledge at least that they had a special drug cocktail brewed performance that the swapped the dirty urine samples for clean ones through some hole in a lab wall so a lot of was said in it was said by a man named grigori roche and of so he was the key witness he put forward the allegations but in the in the case basically during that hearing the court of arbitration for sports he revealed that many of the stuff that he said was best circumstantial first and foremost he said that he never actually administered the said cocktail which he claims he concocted to himself he says that he never saw
12:44 am
anyone administering these said steroid cocktail he didn't know how the cocktail was smuggled from russia abroad because well you know to be used in an international championship it would have to cross the border and also he's never been a witness to the mysterious you know you're in the swamp dirty to clean one he did say that his allegations came from basically talking to he's calling but that was it when it comes to these allegations and in the past two years his words were taken at face value i should say no one questioned them and brought you got himself was propelled to fame even starring in an oscar winning documentary about the doping problem in russia i was hoping to facilitate while those there was deliberate employees in sports history was aware of the existence of a russian doping system. or top level chicks.
12:45 am
a chunk of claims were the foundation or. mclaren's report which was then used for a blanket ban on russian athletes and he was speaking to was an e in this court case what did he say well indeed sir richard mclaren a canadian law who basically pulled put the burden on his shoulders to compile a massive report on the scale of the dog problem in russia testifying in front of the same judge being cross-examined as well he said that basically while he did not shy away from mentioning athletes by name in the report you know we said he meant to you know assume that they were guilty of something so basically being mentioned in his doping report did not mean he says that those athletes were complicit he also revealed he couldn't basically you couldn't explain justify to the court of arbitration for sport why he trusted roger and why he never questioned his allegations also he refused to provide the names of other witnesses of you know of
12:46 am
turn it of sources so to speak he used to put together the reports so the good news for those thirty say athletes that had their appeals. but they would say well ok ok that is good news but the damage as far as we're concerned is already been done to our names well indeed because what happened back in february twenty eighth russian athletes they used to be banned for life they had been banned for life from participating in the olympics which means they were stripped of their medal as the future held nothing for them from that point no more achievement see have those bans revoked and it happened literally a few days before the kickoff of the olympic games in south korea and none of them were invited to participate so there you have it you know mud sticks. i'll be back with more of the stories that have made this week's headlines in just over half an hour for more time.

12:59 am
move this route. this is the minimum standards. it's neither of those things. one. of. the. police looked at.
1:00 am
these meetings. with. the. look of. conduct. past.
1:01 am
the it's. in the heart of the swiss alps. is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox customs. is controlled by them and they impose the opening to. the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe must to pieces by artists like pecan so. kept unsold inside this warehouse that's where the report comes in it covers a. naturally discreet commercially discreet but also discreet and they concern fraud. some of those paintings are linked to dark secrets nobody knows how many of
1:02 am
these secrets kept inside the geneva freeport system you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only is it the world's black box of the our business. we live in surreal times a short time ago even imagining a negotiated end to the tensions on the korean peninsula was a flight into fancy but here we are is this becoming a foreign policy victory for trying. los angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in it's been a struggle. and this man found his own response to the problem and constructed
1:03 am
dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing and nowhere to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the earth or it is accept such solution tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution your craft someone wanted touring the site otherwise it will be a free for all and this is there a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. in the pacific and one of whom because germany. will cause the extinction of bigger than you can. get it isn't on a descent. to hell you could have been i was going to the. jews on the other hand. you know what he. talking about i think you don't think you
1:04 am
know hell if you don't remember if you did misattribute. moving them into town if you were going to follow sunni is a. model to be. a sort of philistine the be some of the fellas to me see the slowly jenna's not of them want to see him again the cream on top of the no. help us of them. think about it but the have to. mignonne edge of the world and no mercy. even respond honestly been more often carla and made up when i predicted what took a fairly sure the color of the. data from philistines of the fraternity to people you know little kiddie and have nothing more to the colleague other talk a little. bit now i mean be in the air and make
1:05 am

1:07 am
people being in the natural something for the drinks and yes gentlemen feel. so if you don't. believe but only hear your words here. because you have been going on before the love of truth be told that the jews are members because they will slay share the blame that suzy's a good feeling even from that because. then you are alive then i go and look to study how many gave me the old shots no doubt just hoping they should make you question that you do it soon. enough. to know what is true. and you know it and that plans to expand their job this will move forward. and can see from the a.t.o.

1:17 am
looks a little used to you to get a mass out of you so i'm a few feet to from some fundamental changes that might occur. when i look to the sounds like something. i am and i'm anything alarming knows me. well i'm still in the world the last evening of the book be a slow. recovery of the illegal arms. if you. will to learn to become a journalist i have
1:18 am
a difficult moment. to learn these years and live apart from there i don't. know how shame or. going to be done it will be an admission from the. official position of western countries makes it possible for all opposition groups to use the chemical weapon to pretend that this is the fault of us human governments because in this situation like to the. western countries the do not sweep for any investigation. aside the for the responsibility. of the body. is.
1:19 am
what we. what to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race based on off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
1:20 am
we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this live on the northern us professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. in the stories that shaped the week witnesses gave testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma but some refused to listen. for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea meet on the southern side of the border to open a new chapter in the peninsula's history. the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations even though the careers of many russian athletes may have been destroyed by his claims.
1:21 am
thank you for watching the weekly news headlines here at r.t. international broadcasting live from moscow i'm kate partridge. doctors and local people from the syrian town of duma testified this week at the u.n. backed chemical watchdog headquarters in the netherlands they claim they witnessed no signs of the alleged chemical attack on april the seventh asked us to channel r.t. arabic located a boy seen in the unverified white helmets video claiming to show the aftermath of the toxic strike he also gave evidence to the o.p.c. w. but not everyone welcomed what he had to say was artie's would have guessed the of explains. when these videos emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed
1:22 am
dozens of civilians and astaire's that the us had regime has previously used chemical attacks the assad regime has used the same yellow gas canisters the n.s.c. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was used they must have had solid evidence you don't just launch a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong you know they have all right we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the source was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water
1:23 am
neither did the doctors see anything. 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 and about fifteen cases this happened because people were inhaling smoke and the only shows symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms with. the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and then sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from a poisonous substance is this isn't helping western journalists the leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when you put your mind to not a monologue if you don't understand normal language let's try
1:24 am
a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here's the but if we came here willingly we demanded the red cross allow us to come here. wrong then truth there isn't the right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise
1:25 am
a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the reason that the boy had to fly over. yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has scientists told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught there you mentioned in the russian press release that somebody here was going to be present who was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. more and more it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today are the evidence
1:26 am
the white helmets feel is fake i don't know maybe i missed something but. in one ear out the other with no pause in between independent research of n.s.a. bailey who is currently returned from and condemned the western media reports. when i spoke to people in junior dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred meters away from the alleged attack they were also all saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i was shocked at the levels to which western. has stooped over this alleged event and the moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that was
1:27 am
saying in western media i mean to accuse russia. basically exploiting a child in years. of eleven year old house and after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that if o.p.c. w find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed affirmation around the site before a.b.c.
1:28 am
w could get. the western air strikes that came in response to the alleged attack appears to have strengthen the bonds between donald trump and emanuel a call and judging by the body language showing the french president's visit to washington this week it seemed a bromance is brewing. messy look. thank you. i like him a lot it's a great honor they don't get it you know but we do have a very special relationship very good. we have to make room for years for it. also highlighted the blossoming friendship by giving trump a symbolic some playing it was taken from a world war one site in phones where u.s. marines helped propel agenda offensive in one thousand nine hundred eighteen.
1:29 am
however a few days later the tree has apparently been removed to a t. uses dug deep projection that the trade must have been an unfair trade deal for trump or even blaming russia for the disappearance whether the train was removed or not the gift was certainly a new take on the bond between the french and us presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macro on how to be hanging out the quasi modo and as a global politics of sharing that country the bone to get the ball to take as. the french and american presidents all sort of sweet lou is holding hands on this being that second date but even under the french style kiss macro is the last foreign leader to be treated to a full state visit to the u.s. on the trump not even a special relationship willing to resume a gold the full state visit and she is the one that started all this hand-holding
1:30 am
business but these grave presidents have forged their relationship. thinks the jury enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace a couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but also in the western alliance. resist the cheese eating surrender monkeys of the iraq all alone for gold and not for the first hog to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars worth of myside to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian warehouses was inside this relationship looks pretty the strange from the outside in the night of the barrio in philadelphia eagles top boxes you want these replies with today's two does not come called the two nations told them global
1:31 am
security and hannity are burying gold letters walks in the garden apparently other european leaders will not cross the trunk. because of his influence over the already one pretty sunny day based adoptive french accent to the way he did us president to send him home as president bond over the middle. a lot of our money issues are they run around in a bit and many of them claim that the child was poor and. because it was. below the list of. their ways have their. well apart from my crew of german chancellor angela merkel also paid a visit to washington though the interactions between her and donald trump were significantly more formal there are nuclear deal was one of the main issues
1:32 am
discussed with the u.s. threatening to scrap the agreement and its goal analysts i.e. to mustapha harsh chesham syncs zone france might be coming around to america's thinking europe isn't the trio nations in your office personally friends even more than germany and britain is trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to you was not the only issue but there were your will is a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on iran for its missile and regional i think it is so this shows the europe is not much willing to you know work with. on friday for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south
1:33 am
korea met on the southern side of the border in a turning point for the pendulous history. i. thought. i.
1:34 am
was off to hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warm relations between the two countries the leaders announced they'd seen the full denuclearization of the peninsula they also found to stop all hostile actions against each other and to gradually reduce their weapons and they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty well donald trump praised the progress made between the two sides following more than six decades of tension a peace treaty could finally be on the horizon human rights lawyer eric sorkin believes the two koreas and now ready. i think what we can expect is
1:35 am
a exciting moment in time in which. as they said in south africa history and hope could live if 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 has create the framework did their own steps and self-determination then the us as a as much smaller role to play if we can agree that and hold them to the notion that ending the hostile policy creating a peace treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. the russian whistleblower at the center of the alleged state sponsored doping
1:36 am
scandal fails to stand by his allegations in court more on that after the break. join me every thursday on the alex simon chill and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way was going to be our coach. guys i know you on the us he's a huge star among us and the huge amount of pressure come on you have to go meet the center of the beach with all we with you and we will show you all the great game the grid if you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the ball going let's go.
1:37 am
alone does that worry you and i'm really happy to join the for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia meet this special one come all sorts of cliches me to just say the review theology team's latest edition to make up a bigger need to address a book. called comeback people have been killed in the latest palestinian anti oaky patient rallies in gaza palestinian health officials say almost nine hundred were also injured cheering friday's protests these are the latest in a series of planned mass demonstrations called the great march of return. i have.
1:38 am
to close up to the. fact that. this is another injury that's came just right now. there have been severe injuries in the house and in the legs. in the post minutes we received at least ten people with severe injuries to the stomach and the ambulances are still carrying hundreds of injured people to the hospitals there is a lack of medicine and medical equipment in the hospitals and they are crowded so as you see this is another ambulance just came just right now. from a look at your defense and as you see this i'm liz has at least four palestinians
1:39 am
that have been injured what happened right now the fence is that at least two thousand palestinian protesters and try to interfere and break that the fence and what happened is those are your choices and i reacted there violently and they started to shoot you i know these palestinian protesters were broke the price that according to palestinian minister brown at least there are twenty palestinians are in severe critical condition and they can clear their death in any any minute. the demonstrations are taking place near a security fence which surrounds the palestinians claim a stone and from them the protesters have been met by a heavy response from the israeli army in four weeks at least forty five palestinians have been killed and thousands injured the united nations and the who have condemned israel's response to the process. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to
1:40 am
use deadly force against fellow human beings even when they present no threat in the context of an occupation such as garza killings resulting from the armed group of who use of force may also constitute willful killings which are a grave breach of the fourth geneva convention however the israeli troops insists they only open fire at the main instigators of trouble who throw stones or molotov cocktails or those who attempt to breach the fence. yet the non-lethal methods used by the i.d.f. also pose a significant threat the latest version of sponge tipped rubber bullets are said to be harder and heavier than previous ones they've been linked to deaths and severe injuries while an israeli human rights group recently released a video this reportedly shows a group of soldiers in the west bank discussing the use of live i mean ition.
1:41 am
ah. well r t r's the israeli army to comment on the video they said this behavior is not in accordance with the wants expected of i.d.f. soldiers but they added the commander at the time had told his soldiers to and professionally the i.d.f. also promised to revise the relevant procedures. well young palestinians have been among those killed in the demonstrations one incident last week was caught on camera showing a teenager who was shot in the head by an israeli sniper the boy's father says his son posed no threat to the soldiers but an israeli general believes it's the price to be paid to ensure the safety of the country. you sure you are below the
1:42 am
low i said mohammed was three hundred meters away from the fence and even if he was right next to it he was a peaceful demonstration he was just a child was he carrying a missile launcher was he shooting at the soldier who killed him why did they kill him i'll tell you what mohammed did wrong mohammed's fault was that he was demanding his rights to migrate storage sometimes one shooter small body and you intend to his arm or shoulder it goes even higher the picture is not a pretty picture of you that's the price that we have to pay to preserve the safety and quality of life of the residents of the state of israel and that's the price. it's been revealed the former head of moscow's anti doping lab. has failed to confirm a number of allegations made against russian athletes the key witness in the alleged state sponsored don't bring scandal gave testimony via a voice link in january to the court of arbitration for sport in february the court
1:43 am
upheld the appeals of twenty eight russian athletes banned for doping but is only now given some of its reasons r.t.c. quashed on of joy my colleague andrew farmer in the studio to discuss the developments. byrne first and foremost in the past few years that we've seen the scandal and revelation say it has been established that pretty much every single athlete in russia dops or it seems it was common knowledge at least that they had a special drug cocktail brewed performance that the swapped the dirty urine samples for clean ones through some hole in a lab wall so a lot of was was said by a man named grigori roche and of so he was the key witness he put forward the allegations but in the in the case basically during that hearing the court of arbitration for sports he revealed that many of the stuff that he said was best circumstantial first and foremost he said that he never actually administered the
1:44 am
said cocktail which he claims he concocted to himself he says that he never saw anyone administering these said steroid cocktail he didn't know how the cocktail was smuggled from russia abroad because well you know to be used in an international championship it would have to cross the border and also he's never been a witness to the mysterious you know you're in the swamp dirty to clean one he did say that his allegations came from basically talking to his colleagues but that was it when it comes to these allegations and in the past two years his words were taken at face value i should say no one questioned them and broaching of himself was propelled to fame even starring in an oscar winning documentary about the doping problem in russia i was hoping to facilitate what was the last elaborate employees in the sport's history was aware of the existence of a russian doping system. top level to.

los angeles the city of luxury and free but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in it's been a struggle. running into this man from his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the authorities accept such solution tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution you craft someone want to touring the site otherwise it will be a free for all the news there are a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis.
2:20 am
was. that. we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this of on them as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used in the stories that shaped the week witnesses gave testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma but some refused to listen. for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea meet on the southern side of the border to open a new chapter in the potential is history. and the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations even though the careers of many russian athletes may have been ruined by his claims.
2:21 am
thank you for watching the weekly news headlines here at r.t. international broadcasting live from moscow i'm kate. doctors and local people from the syrian town of duma testified this week at the un backed chemical watched on headquarters in the netherlands they claim they witnessed no signs of the alleged chemical attack on april the seventh sister channel r.t. arabic located a boy seen in an unverified wind on its video claiming to show the aftermath of the toxic strike he also gave evidence to the o.p.c. w. were not everyone welcomed what he had to say was artie's what i'd guess the of explains. when these reviews emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed dozens of civilians and
2:22 am
astaire's that the us had regime has previously used in chemical attacks the assad regime has used this is the in yellow gas canisters the n.s.t. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was yours they must have had solid evidence you don't just launch a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong in that they have all right we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the saw was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water neither
2:23 am
did the doctors see anything. 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 and about fifteen cases this happened because people were inhaling smoke and the only shows symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms with. the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and then sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from a poisonous substance is this isn't helping western journalists the leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when you put your motor not if you don't understand normal language let's try
2:24 am
a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here is the onset about it we came here willingly we demanded the red cross allow us to come here. wrong then truth there isn't the right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the
2:25 am
reason that the boy had to fly over the yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has signed his told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught that you mentioned in a russian press release that somebody here was going to be present to was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. more and more it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today are the evidence
2:26 am
the white helmets feel is fake i don't know maybe i missed something but. in one ear out the other with no pause in-between. independent research have been a severely who's recently returned from duma condemned the western media reports when i spoke to people in duma dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred metres away from the alleged attack they were also all saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i'm shocked the levels to which western media has stooped over this alleged event and the moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that was saying from western media i mean to accuse russia of basically exploiting
2:27 am
a child in years. of eleven year old house and d r after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that p.c. w find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed affirmation around the site before a.b.c. w could get there. the western airstrikes that came in response to
2:28 am
the alleged chemical attack appear to have strengthen the bonds between donald trump and emmanuel mccall and judging by the body language during the french president's visit to washington this week it seems a bromance is brewing. messy looking. thank you. i like him a lot it's a great honor they don't want you here but we do have a very special relationship very go get. him to go we have to make room for years for. my craw also highlighted the blossoming friendship by giving trump a symbolic start playing it was taken from a world war one site in france where u.s. marines helped propel a german offensive in nineteen eighteen. however
2:29 am
a few days later the tree has apparently been removed twenty users dug deeper joking that the tree must have been an unfair trade deal for truong or even blaming russia for their disappearance or was the tree was removed or not the gift was certainly a new take on the bond between the french and us presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macroeconomy be hanging out at the quasi modo and as a global politics ensuring that country won't together loans to gather. french and american presidents all sort of sweet lou is holding hands and this being that second date but even one of the french style kits macro is the last foreign leader to be treated to a full state visit to the u.s. on the trump not even a special relationship willing to resume a gold the full state visit and she is the one that started all this hand-holding business but these grave presidents have ordered their relationship. there in.

the jury enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace a couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but also in the western alliance. resists the cheese eating surrender monkeys of meat in iraq on loan from god and my former push to hard to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars up a mistrial to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian houses was inside this relationship looks pretty the strange from the outside in the night of the barrio in philadelphia goes top boxes you won't be surprised by the length with today's two does not hold the two nations told the global security and here they are burying gold is walked in the garden apparently other

european leaders will not cross the trunk. because of his influence over the already was pretty some days taste of dogs to french accent to the way he did us president to send him home as president bonded over the middle. money issues are very wrong on and in many of them claiming that the child was poor and. because it was. a low this. i don't have. well apart from my crew and german chancellor angela merkel also paid a visit to washington though the interactions between her and trump who are significantly more formal the iran nuclear deal was one of the main issues discussed too with the u.s. threaten to scrap the agreement political analysts say it must stop chesham things
2:32 am
fronts might be coming around to america's thinking your present the trio nations in your office personally friends even more than germany and britain is trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to you was not the only issue but the rest of your is a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on iran for its missile and regional i think so this shows that europe is not the must be willing to you know work with donald trump. on friday for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea met on the southern side of the border in a turning point for the peninsula's history. i.
2:33 am

2:34 am
after hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warmer relations between the two countries the leaders announced they'd seek the full denuclearization of the potential or they also vowed to stop all hostile actions against each other and to gradually reduce their weapons and they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty. well donald trump praised the progress made between the two sides following more than six decades of tension a lasting peace could finally be on the horizon human rights lawyer eric sorkin believes the two koreas are now ready. i think what we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said in south
2:35 am
africa history and hope could why you have it. in a certain time in a certain slate and i really hopeful that from these talks we could 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 salvadoran k.p.h. that plane did their own steps in self-determination then the us as it's much smaller will to live 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. humanitarian organizations are demanding answers after an alleged saudi led air strikes on a wedding party in yemen the bombing killed at least twenty people and injured

brothers who were killed. who r.t. contacted a number of humanitarian organizations for their response human rights watch said saudi arabia continues to target civilians and refuses to adequately investigate or compensate victims. condemned the attack and called for an investigation. well in response riyadh said it's taking the report very seriously and will fully investigate as it claims to have done in the past with similar incidents. the saudi led intervention in yemen began almost three years ago to contact her three opposition fighters that riyadh considers them terrorists seeking to overthrow the yemeni government the u.n. has described the conflict as the worst manmade humanitarian crisis in modern history we spoke to the former head of the red cross in yemen who explained just how much needs to be done to help the country. there is a problem with
2:38 am
a structural collapse of the system in yemen you have problems of water you have problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no doubt that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some to a large extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed when sure a decent level of life for the population i am afraid that this is becoming a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the beginning of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor doing the war unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was we logically should i say it's simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex you
2:39 am

2:41 am
said cocktail which he claims he concocted to himself he says that he never saw anyone administering these said steroid cocktail he didn't know how the cocktail was smuggled from russia abroad because well you know to be used in an international championship it would have to cross the border and also he's never been a witness to the mysterious you know you're in the swamp dirty to clean one he did say that his allegations came from basically talking to he's calling but that was it when it comes to these allegations and in the past two years his words were taken at face value i should say no one questioned them and broaching of himself was propelled to fame even starring in an oscar winning documentary about the doping problem in russia i was hoping to facilitate what it was that was deliberate employees in sports history was aware of the existence of the russian doping system

we received at least ten people with severe injuries to the stomach and head the ambulances are still carrying hundreds of injured people show hospitals there is a lack of medicine and medical equipment in the hospitals and they are crowded bob hope so as you see this is another ambulance just came just right now. from a look at your defense and as you see this ambulance has at least and for palestinians that have been injured what happened right now to the fence is that at least two thousand palestinian protesters and try to interfere and break that the fence and what happened is those are your forces and i reacted there violently and they started to shoot yet on these palestinian protesters or broke the fence that according to palestinian minister have at least ten or twenty palestinians are in c.v.s. critical condition and they can now declared their death and any any minute. now
2:46 am
demonstrations are taking place near a security fence which surrounds land the palestinians claim a stone and from them the protesters have been met by a heavy response from the israeli army in four weeks at least forty five palestinians have been killed the assassins injured the united nations and the e.u. have condemned israel's response to the protests. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to use deadly force against fellow human beings even when they present no threat in the context of an occupation such as garza killings resulting from the armed group of who use of force may also constitute willful killings which are a great breach of the fourth geneva convention however the israeli troops insist they only open fire at the main instigators of trouble who throw stones a lot of cold toes or those who attempt to breach the fence yes the normally so
2:47 am
methods used by the i.d.f. also pose a significant threat the latest version of sponge tipped rubber bullets are said to be harder and heavier than previous ones they have been linked to deaths and severe injuries while an israeli human rights group recently released a video this reportedly shows a group of soldiers in the west bank discussing the use of live ammunition. ha. r.t. asked the israeli army to comment on the video they said this behavior is not in accordance with what is expected of i.d.f. soldiers but they added the commander at the time had told his soldiers to act
2:48 am
professionally the idea of also promised to revise relevant procedures. young palestinians have been among those killed in the demonstrations one of those don't last week was caught on camera showing a teenager who was shot in the head an israeli sniper the boy's father says his son posed no threat to the soldiers but an israeli general believes it's the price to be paid to ensure the safety of the country. in a new show you how low the lowest it is mohamed was three hundred meters away from the fence and even if he was right next to it he was a peaceful demonstration he was just a child was he carrying a missile launcher was he shooting at the soldier who killed him why did they kill him i'll tell you what muhammad did wrong mohammed's fault was that he was demanding his rights to migrate story sometimes one shooter a small body and you intend to his arm or shoulder it goes even higher the picture
2:49 am
is not a pretty picture if that's the price that we have to pay to preserve the safety and quality of life of the residents of the state of israel so let me ask the price. how about could more of this week's stories that have hit the headlines in just over half an hour otherwise for news in the meantime. backscatter survival guide books take you to start with. you through. the streets there you go to get. back to. oh heck no.
2:50 am
repatriations came together after seven years. though of the service guys are ignored. themselves somers and i built tiny houses for the homeless. six years back and they are here why do these guys now for me a tiny house is not a solution it will be a free for. this nice safe conditions to live in. to suit the president and the city of los angeles. always good terrorist. nobody should be homeless anywhere but especially in one of the richest countries in the world.
2:51 am
i build everything was true because i make a lot of mistakes. and it's easy to back out your mistakes in compton south central l.a. a pint sized idea. in a battle with city off already. when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle. the mayor of los angeles has declared the city is in the midst of a homelessness crisis. is trying to solve it one tiny house at a time the tiny house idea is very simple it's shelter. food water and shelter are not optional they're required for human survival so it's a. temporary solution and like the first stone
2:52 am
a foundation if you will to helping people who are homeless. according to elvis these cheap and portable tiny homes are meant to be on the streets of l.a. . and they need to fix. but right now they're not moving anywhere because city authorities banned them so they used to belong to somebody yeah yeah. and now they're being used no now they've been sitting here for better part of a year collecting dust. and people are you know struggling and suffering. so yeah it's really sad i mean it's you know this is human life here you know. los angeles authorities have accused his tiny homes of threatening public safety. well this has seen the tiny house movement go viral online with support coming from right across the world so with the help of internet crowd funding he's going rogue once
2:53 am
completed they all have new carbon pads. alarms on the windows i put the vents these holes in the top you know it's really hot summer here so that way the heat will rise and go out in the city of angels elvis isn't considered one by the powers that be. but to the homeless he's one of the few struggling to get them off the streets i don't quit and i don't give up and i definitely don't bow down to bullies people need shelter now if i have to build a tiny house for every last person until i'm five hundred years old then that's what i'm going to do. elvis is building his next house for a woman who brave. people that live. ravens living on the top next to a freeway. and five from say.
2:54 am
the situation much worse than when this last. check of this is already on a service. raven's been on and off the streets most of her life. yeah sure after fleeing violent home when she was just thirteen. she once had a time since the city of st she's been out here so you do not. tired after getting that. pretty well. pretty light at the time. but it would. seem the. elvis is worried by the state if this communal camp anything. to buy raven
2:55 am
a tent until he can build her a new tiny house so i'm going to have a tent and our rendezvous back to you guys in a little while. alone present opens up about a situation. it's been a struggle. and. the city always kicks us out from the state it's us they create those. who want to costly move their stuff every day. ravens out here because she feels emergency shelters are overbooked or unsafe but city law was designed to move these camps on. and as a phone queue she receives
2:56 am
a visit to. our. boys and we got to. get him about this by saturday. elvis is. brave and he's given orders. she's running out of places to go they want everybody downtown they were ready one section. it's not going to happen we're trying to scatter branch out. is going to get away from downtown they wired by downtown what six downtown skid row. the worst place in history to be homeless downtown. if you're homeless in l.a. city louis to keep streets clear give you two choices. keep moving.
2:57 am
on the monster growth. this is the only place that you can sit up a tent without the city forcing belief. but elvis is tiny homes aren't allowed here . skid row is. unlike anything else in the united states. i call it the worst manmade disaster in the u.s. . are you. doing ok. and he fails runs a big emergency shelter in the middle of skid row would you like to he's seen the numbers of women seeking help in a trip in just a year what you mean can't daedra nice to meet you bless you got pretty eyes. and he's on crutches because last year he lost a leg to the flesh eating bacteria that exists here still every day he's out
2:58 am
inviting new arrivals to his shelter because he knows just how bad it gets more than two thousand people on the streets forty nine square blocks of skid row it's the worst that we've ever seen. just a good idea you really need to look down that street there's not one open spot or summat sidewalk. or i'll be a half a mile down that way. elvis's tiny houses are designed as an option to avoid sleeping on skid row. because here the increasing numbers of women and children a sleeping alongside drugs crime and the mentally ill. and police are the only source of protection such a pretty constant ending yes day and night. for maintaining order here can be struck running with.
2:59 am
commanders running with us through this fast. it's been one night every once in a while and streets and i can't sleep because it's so dangerous and you just stay alert rats are running around running over people running in their chance and often people get beaten or assaulted or raped and that in effect can damage your health pretty quickly. so i'm all for tiny houses but there has to be restroom facilities and shower facilities because otherwise we're putting people in treacherous living conditions just as if they're living in a tent. and this is why and the shelter keeps an open door policy but he's struggling to keep up with demand. to see right here right across the city
3:00 am
shelters are full of many have to turn people away the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter there are not enough beds forty seven thousand people experiencing almost this and there are about twelve thousand shelter beds or transitional housing beds even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in there's no place to go. look up because with limited access to emergency shelters and low cost housing life on the streets in l.a. is an endless game of cat and mouse. because the city is charged with keeping the streets clean morning everybody this department of sanitation crew is about to move through the homeless encampments of skid row. watch out watch out for hazardous materials watch out for human waste. industrial operations
3:01 am
like this. happen daily across los angeles to keep the streets clear forcing the homeless to be constantly on the move. we are here every day in skid row every street is clean once every two weeks so this cycle that's the big effort we're doing. stuff think is essential this is central to the city's livability the center of the city's become a growth and also the city's image this team will put more than five tons in the gadgets truck today anything they deem to be unsanitary. most of it will be rubbish but some of it will be people's tents and a few positions by pleading tactical fighting. have fought about for something. like. this that.
3:02 am
you're in a waste. that the city gives advance notice of the cleanup but not everyone gets the missing. today or some unlucky ones. when you're asked them to. they like it because repeating i mean if you want to person living on the street you want to live if we sidewalk decide to devalue a loss leader. but the city's focus on keeping the streets clean means further instability when you're living on them. it's also one of the main reasons elvis is tiny houses a band playing to hampering operations like this. you know waits in the suburban and then on the street. so we take. if you're good side it's nice safe conditions to live it so we basically the city has. germination those should not be
3:03 am
on the city streets. we live in surreal times a short time ago even imagining a negotiated end to the tensions on the korean peninsula was a flight into fancy but here we are is this becoming a foreign policy victory for trump. palm oil is one of the most controversial products of our time it's a solid vegetable fact that's very cheap. twenty seventeen production grew to sixty three million tons that rapid growth in international demand for cheap oil has led to the massive expansion of plantations which is the destruction of the rainforest
3:04 am
. given duties you know a lot more than ten million hiked as of unique rain forest has been destroyed and it's a process that just keeps going. later that day right back. they made a mess they did great they basically did this. and find out that getting your belongings could get up to the state. property just destroyed it.
3:05 am
i ask you and. i knows it. take you in the midst of. you know. this it will be the rules you had to be tempted away from the driveway. to tennessee be down from sixty nine. mrs rainey. and the seventy two hours to move most o. . christine is new to the streets priced out of the winter just desperately trying to get back. she says many thankless psychosis. but the authorities just take an entire week's work. at the recycle bin. but i think. i get to be a bit dull to get
3:06 am
a freak to cities clean up things the christine will be out here even longer. for anything for was mad to. take into the tent. this is a. well. for many homeless people in l.a. a lack of affordable housing makes it almost impossible to get off the streets. listing three percent of the city's rental market is vacant. we walk around most of the night and then christine shows me something breaking.
3:07 am
this is the famous grouse. this little house that i called my home. now the memories you in. so that was home this is home. is home. that's all to cheer in. again. and to say god's timing that mike. pence is there in mind. this is my back. don't be a stranger ok. well this is tiny homes could help people like christine until they get back on their
3:08 am
feet back in compton the pressure is on for them to finish raven's tiny house. but he still needs to locate a place we can put it some way the city clean up one easily find these are just two of over eight thousand. the city controls. but. often stuff more love is not allowed. and while searching he gets a call from raven with an unexpected update. you know right after your turn around the time. yeah i'm pregnant. this morning i'm pregnant hard i'm a governor after all else railfreight our time here and i have my life together elvis is already worried about reagan but he must to some enthusiasm i will listen
3:09 am
i got to run right now but i'll call you back later that's that's great news we have to celebrate. and i want to thank you i want to jump for joy and like cry of this and on like. this is how quickly a change in circumstance can see your life go from bad to worse when you're on the street. with the stakes raised for her tiny house i want to see how ravens coping with the news of her pregnancy. despite getting orders to move she's still here at the same campsite looking. you know want to know.
3:10 am
good if. a little concerned regarding the conditions. living at this time i got a lot of business to take care of. don't know something i haven't attempted. to make me. like. getting off the streets. but getting off the streets is difficult for raven. we talk more and she reveals the devastating level of violence she fled as a kid. in the streets. i was listed as a juvenile runaway. bride to have been imprisoned. five months pregnant with.
3:11 am
life. basically i had no choice but to grow up before it was time. raven's had to learn to be tough. but she's right on the edge. like more and more americans take here. she strips deep in the cycle of long term homelessness. with no immediate way of getting out. when your life is the size of a tin can be a powerful tool. it's almost delivery day and with the news that raven's pregnant elvis is adding a special finishing touch to her tiny house. so some of us just
3:12 am
a little something to help her feel better and you know help her feel like she's got a nice guy to look at elvis knows how important little details like this can be he's watched too many people lose hope on the streets since the city forced me to take houses away from people three people have died mainly due to being stuck out in the elements. not having anywhere to go so. it's criminal. picture of smoke in the doorway of her her tiny house one of the people who died was his close friend smokey who received the very first tiny house new year's morning they found her dead in somebody else's tent not even her own because the city took that too. so. it's pretty simple without shelter people die. so. it's been a few months but was
3:13 am
a good person and she was my friend. inside city hall the pressure is on to create more housing. the city has approved a multi-billion dollar strategy to help homeless but it will take ten years to build thousand new units which is. officials refuse to embrace elvis is tiny for me a tiny house on a. parking space is not a solution we're doing at this service to those individuals who stayed in these tiny homes without the added but if a structure in place city council. opposed tiny houses in his district because of concerns from angry residents. someone wanted the site otherwise it'll be a free for all it'll be sex drugs and rock n roll and. absolutely you have to have
3:14 am
some rules and. see. if they are here why put these guys back with elvis and the city is clear and yet again this time at raven. in christine's camp right now that loads open up there was a prestigious show yet or such on saturday then that's considered a bulky items so it's going in the dumpster. almost half and christine's belongings are taken by the department of sanitation but residents not around so only christine is here to see it they say you know you're welcome i mean to hit rock bottom this is my run fight every year. all that money spent. you can spend half of that and give these people
3:15 am
a place to go but instead their tree and i am. with ravens camp demolished most of her positions gone and with a baby on the way elvis must deliver her tiny house before nightfall. with. i finally found a suitable location for ravens' tiny house in a quiet area mostly industrial. affect anybody. elvis and raven hoped this part of downtown l.a. away from skid row would be safe from the authorities. both already he's a must continue to keep l.a. streets clean days finally. for the tiny house delivery feeling very good by good very good. going to a lot of life drama but it's going through
3:16 am
a lot of hardship. so this tiny house it's a person asked. after the week that she's had and everything she's gone through on top of being pregnant it's more important now that she gets the house because i don't think she can go much longer not get any rest. you really fifty below. i do. think. i think. i'm going to faint. ok. most things i do in life are out of principle. i was taught that somebody falls down you pick them back up. that's what we should do in life. you remember that you know you know. you called me and said. you know people sit on the back porch. look at the stars said one looking up at the tar oh yeah i
3:17 am
have to see it sit another good tired but the stars it's got a magic. so finally raven gets her own private space. hopefully the first time in over a year a good night's sleep and helen if you think it's going to last. that was said to say with us forever i wish it could last forever. after god's hands.
3:18 am
were. well it's a let used to be the end it didn't last i believe you started with a few super cell phone and said i think it was that my wife. when i left that i sat next. to. a log and i leslie. was feeling the worst so i believe we've got somebody slowly. taking. custody of the legal up and i will keep. the
3:19 am
family have a difficult time. and these years i live off until i don't. know how same or. similar it's gonna be if admission from them. i. see. i i.
3:20 am
i . we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this live on the northern us professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. in the stories that shaped the week witnesses gave testimony on the alleged chemical attack in duma but some refused to listen. for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea meet on the southern side of the border to open a new chapter in the pendulous history. and the key witness in the russian doping scandal fails to confirm some of his allegations even though the careers of many russian athletes may have been ruined by his claims.
3:21 am
i'm kate partridge and you're watching the weekly headlines here at r.t. international thank you for joining us. doctors and local people from the syrian town of duma testified this week at the u.n. backed chemical watchdog headquarters in the netherlands they claim they witnessed no signs of the alleged chemical attack on april the seventh sister channel r.t. arabic located a boy seen in the man verified white helmets video claiming to show the aftermath of the toxic strike he also gave evidence to the a.p.c. w. but not everyone welcomed what he had to say as artie's would have guessed the of explains. when these videos emerged pundits and politicians took them as gospel the truth conclusive indisputable and irrefutable proof of assad's chemical since the chemical weapon that killed dozens of civilians and
3:22 am
astaire's that the us had regime has previously used in chemical attacks the assad regime has used the same yellow gas canisters the n.s.c. telling fox news they have a high degree of confidence that it was used they must have had solid evidence you don't just launch a hundred cruise missiles in an act of war without convincing proof beyond any doubt right right. wrong in that we have all. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. pundits and politicians who've never been to syria where it happened witnesses the locals who were there in the hospital in question say they didn't see a thing all the exhaust was white helmets dousing confused of aliens with water
3:23 am
neither did the doctors see anything. 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 the only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms with. the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and then sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from a poisonous substance is this isn't helping western journalists their leaders insist it happened syria russia and locals insist it didn't dead end usually when you when you might you know tomorrow if you don't understand normal
3:24 am
language let's try a different way if you're impervious to arguments let us bring you the witnesses so russia aboard more than a dozen witnesses to the west to the u.p.c. w. and invited western press perfect opportunity for journalists to get to the bottom of this right. right how low do you have to go to bring a little child all the way and threaten them right off the bat the nile but here is the thought if we came here willingly we demanded the red cross allow us to come here. wrong in truth there isn't the right answer no matter what you say to some people no matter what you show them they'll never ever come around or change their views how threatened do you have to feel to change your story into the noise
3:25 am
a chemical weapons attack stubborn doesn't do this fellow justice he's really the reason that the boy had to fly over the yes my son is young and it's been difficult for him to make it here a flight here is no easy thing so little has signed his told you the truth something you do not want to hear it was a necessary measure we needed to show that there was a line in a very dangerous one. anyone who hoped there would be a breakthrough was in for a disappointment hours of testimony and the evidence all for naught though you mentioned in a russian press release that somebody here was going to be present who was a witness of producing the video of the white helmets and i was wondering where this witness is and if he can tell his testimony. it's my view all these witnesses we heard from today on the evidence the white
3:26 am
helmets feel is fake i don't know maybe i missed something. in one ear out the other with no pause in between independent research of n s a b who was recently returned from do you condemn the western media reports. when i spoke to people in junior dr as medical star in the same hospital in the medical point that received victims on that night they all also told me exactly the same thing as people are now hearing in the hague and also when i went outside and spoke to civilians only seven hundred meters away from the alleged attack they were also also saying the same thing to me that there was no chemical weapon attack i am surprised and i was shocked the levels to which western. stooped over this alleged event and the moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that was
3:27 am
aimed from western media i mean to accuse russia. basically exploiting a child in use. of eleven year old has and after western media has cynically exploited children throughout the history of this conflict and if we don't have to go back to far to remember that in east aleppo it is almost whatever evidence is produced now it will be perceived as being influenced by russia or by syria i mean we've already seen the british government and western media if you like laying the ground for saying that russia had already pretty tampered with the site before the open c.w. comment so we can almost predict that if o.p.c. w find no evidence of chemical weapon use in that area the next line will be russia tampered with and sanitized and sprayed our fresh air around the site before a.b.c.
3:28 am
w could get. the western air strikes that came in response to the alleged chemical attack appear to have strengthen the bonds between donald trump and emanuel are cruel and judging by the body language during the french president's visit to washington this week it seems a bromance is brewing. messy look. thank you. i like him a lot it's a great honor great honor that you are but we do have a very special relationship very good. looking we have to make room for years for. the marker also highlighted the blossoming friendship binding trump a symbolic coach circling it was taken from a world war one site in france where u.s. marines helped for a german offensive in nineteen eighteen. however
3:29 am
a few days later the tree has apparently been removed today uses dug deeper joking that the tree must have been an unfair trade deal for trump or even blaming russia for their disappearance or whether the tree was removed or not they give to certainly a new take on the bond which we in the french and u.s. presidents. in case you missed it donald trump and emanuel macro on how to be hanging out the economy money down as a global politics and showing that country grown together just to get. the french and american presidents all sort of sweet lou is holding hands on this being that second date but even under the french style kiss monochrome is the last foreign leader to be treated to a full of state visit to the u.s. funded from not even special relationship moving to reason may go the full state visit and she is the one that started all this hand-holding business but these grave presidents have forged their relationship. the theory
3:30 am
enjoyed a military parade for best deal day in paris last july so much that they held a joint in the syrian airspace couple of weeks ago using the assad regime for target practice but also in the western alliance and. rees the cheese eating surrender monkeys of the iraq along for the gold mine for bush to hard to claim credit for sending one hundred million dollars for a missile to destroy one hundred thousand dollars worth of syrian houses along the side this relationship looks pretty strange from the outside in the night of the barrio in philadelphia eagles talk. you won't be surprised by the length with the thirty two does not call the two nations talk and here they are burying gold is walking in the garden apparently the other european leaders will
3:31 am
not cry in the trunk. because of. the show because that's the one. below that is too much. trouble but they don't always have their area. well apart from a crawl under merkel also paid a visit to washington though the interactions between the german chancellor and trump or significantly more formal the iran nuclear deal was one of the main issues discussed with the us tracking to scrap the agreement political analyst saeed moustapha haas chesham sings though france might be coming around to america's thinking europe isn't the trio nations in your office specially friends even more than germany and britain is trying to get closer to donald trump's aspirations and demands especially with regard to iran is not the only issue but the rest of your is
3:32 am
a standing against any intensification of problems and tensions with iran they just reject the demand by trio european nations with regard to imposing further sanctions on iran for its missile and regional i think so this shows the europe is not much willing to work with donald trump. on friday for the first time in sixty five years the leaders of north and south korea met on the southern side of the border in a turning point for the pension is history.
3:33 am
i. have to hours of talks they reached a number of key agreements that could significantly warm relations between the two
3:34 am
countries the leaders announced they'd seek the full denuclearize ation of the peninsula they also vowed to stay weapons and they agreed to hold talks with the u.s. and china to arrive at a proper peace treaty. well donald trump praised the progress made between the two sides i think where we can expect is a exciting moment in time in which. as they said in south africa history and hope could live if you have it. in a certain time in a certain slates and i really 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 create the frame to give their own steps in self-determination then the us as was much smaller will to live if we can agree that and hold them to the notion that ending the hostile policy creating the peace
3:35 am
treaty with the u.s. and south korea will lead to denuclearization of the korean peninsula. humanitarian organization alleged saudi led airstrike on a wedding party in yemen the bombing killed at least twenty people and injured dozens more some reports suggest as many as fifty people were killed a warning you may find the following video distressing a seven year old boy can be seen clinging to his father's body they're said to have travelled from another part of the country to attend the celebrations the man's body was reportedly the last to be taken away following the a strike as the boy wouldn't let him go many of the victims were women and children .
3:36 am
i was the bridegroom and those of our friends gathered in our place and were hit by an airstrike many innocent people were killed and injured. all of this is my nephew who was injured last night by the airstrike he's two brothers who were killed. it says and number of humanitarian organizations for their response human rights watch said saudi arabia continues to target civilians and refuses to adequately investigate or compensate victims oxfam condemned the attack and called for an investigation in response riyadh said it's taking the report very seriously and will fully investigate as it came to have done in the past with similar incidents
3:37 am
the saudi led intervention in yemen began almost three years ago to counter his the opposition fight as riyadh considers them terrorists seeking to overthrow the yemeni government the u.n. has described the conflict as the worst manmade humanitarian crisis in modern history he spoke with the former head of the red cross in yemen to explain just how much needs to be done to help the country. there is a problem with the structural collapse of the system in yemen you have problems of water you have problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no doubt that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some to a large extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed to ensure a decent level of life for the population i am afraid that this is becoming
3:38 am
a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the beginning of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor during the one unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was we logically should i say simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex you have infrastructures which are falling to pieces up to the point of the whole system we have commissioned a study from well known british school that is going to carry out a full study of the health system in the moment to to get to know where we are today in yemen you are very serious crisis there is a food crisis there is also a crisis that has led to one million suspected community cases of cholera last year in a matter of six months it was like the fire in twenty two years of the i.c.r.c. had never seen something like that bringing back the country on the on back on its
3:39 am
feet will be a long long lasting talks. it's been revealed the former head of moscow's anti doping lab. has failed to confirm a number of allegations made against russian athletes the key witness in the alleged state sponsored doping scandal gave testimony via voice link in january to the court of arbitration. for sport in february the court upheld the appeals of twenty eight russian athletes banned for doping but it's only now given some of its reasons. down of joining my colleague andrew farmer in the studio to discuss the developments burned first and foremost in the past few years that we've seen the scandal unravel a should say it has been established that pretty much every single athlete in russia dog so it seems it was common knowledge at least that they had a special drug cocktail brewed performance that the swapped the dirty urine samples for clean ones through some hole in the lab walls so a lot of was it was said by
