2:02 pm
just clashes but the damage that was caused by the protest is the police had warned early on tuesday morning ahead of these may day protests that they thought they were going to be hijacked by anti capitalists by anti fascists and they would indeed that they came out in their hundreds ready with a gear they safety gear to be able to protect themselves from the tear gas the masks just have a look at this is one of the vehicles that they burned still smoking there and just behind it the plumes of smoke that came up from this vehicle huge promptly mz of smoke that went up and just completely mosques this block of apartments where people were living protesters who had damaging and smashing items up across this part of paris and the police had to let them be however when they came when they started the fires here when these apartment blocks were put in danger then the police intervened and we were cool in that crossfire here is what happened in the
2:03 pm
middle of cashews now starting when the police wanted to have a look or very you'll see the tear gas is coming up to us the police move again and that's because just behind us there is a fire going on the demonstrators have put forward to a vehicle and emerge a bike and as you can see i have smoke because it. well as you might have gathered we've just been in the middle of what was quite a large clash between the police and the protesters just look behind me this is one of the trucks with the water cannons and you can see the gendarme now coming down and you can see some of the water of the firm that's been on the ground to try and push these protesters back take a look behind me and they're actually trying to barricade themselves up now that's off to they set fire to what looked like a g c p the fact it's still own fire over there in the distance the process is it
2:04 pm
is if you just turn around a little bit more what can we have a look at this you may see this big. dog coming up here on the protesters what they did is they look for it see what seem to be some sort of motorbike and a car this protest is due to continue these guys say they want an anti capitalist society they want an end to fascism there aren't that but the reality is what are they doing today is not just smashing up the big businesses in the big enterprises they're actually now searching up small enterprises and putting people's lives in real danger surety pinski. paris. or more than two hundred people have been arrested after the clashes according to police france isn't the only country though where protests have been taking place but many nations enjoyed more peaceful demonstrations namely in russia germany and
2:05 pm
the u.k. . israel's prime minister has gone all out to prove once and for all that iran lied about its nuclear ambitions he wheeled out of thousands of documents and c.d.'s of evidence as part of a powerpoint presentation it comes just twelve days before donald trump intends to scrap the iran nuclear deal tonight i'm here to tell you one thing. iran lart the evidence well that lies in this filing cabinet allegedly thousands of documents and c.d.'s half a ton to be precise proven conclusively tehran misled the world about its nuclear plans both before and after the twenty fifteen agreement we've known for years that iran had a secret nuclear weapons program called project them out hailing this as a significant development and a great intelligence achievement that the all who was sure iran has one reason and one reason only to hide this information why would
2:06 pm
a terrorist regime hide. and meticulously catalog good secret nuclear files if not to use them at a later do a state hiding its nuclear weapons program what other country would do such a thing some will remember netanyahu twenty twelve un speech and the cartoon bomb iran's foreign ministry has already called his presentation a propaganda show but the issue here is also a serious one since the onset netanyahu has been an ardent critic of the iran agreement so this is a terrible deal. i think this deal is a bad thing to do or it should never have been concluded. and in a few days. president trump. will design will make as the solution on what to do with the nuclear deal. i'm sure he'll do the right thing. the right
2:07 pm
thing for the united states. the right thing for israel and the right thing. for the produce of the world this development comes at a crucial time for this international framework in less than two weeks president trump will decide the future course of u.s. action is likely to differ strongly from the other members of the five plus one group despite last week's niceties during president micron's visit to the states so far trump has kept his cards close to his chests we'll see what happens his favorite phrase whatever does come about on may the twelfth there's a new york who will do all he can to convince the world that scrapping the deal is the right way forward even at the cost of years of negotiations and the delicate regional power balance. hailed as a huge diplomatic success the around nuclear deal was hammered out back in twenty fifteen between the u.s. china u.k. russia france germany and iran to go she took nine years ending
2:08 pm
a long standoff to around agreed to strict limits on its nuclear program and to open facilities up to international experts in return some sanctions against the country were lifted now after netanyahu promised to share his data with the world germany france both said that it needs to be studied and in detail however the white house backed netanyahu presentations saying that around a tried and failed to hide its activities from the world that statement contradicts data from the nuclear watchdog the international atomic energy agency and the e.u. foreign policy chief in turn said that new york his claims don't put into question iran's compliance with the deal we got reaction from people in the iranian capital . now that trump is in the white house and your clients are. having its most obvious it seems to be. what is after again to break the deal and make america pull out of the. certainly if the israelis had precise information and it could be investigated in
2:09 pm
a serious manner they would take action fast because they know they have to do something to get results in a much shorter time i. ran has been committed to all its promises no these release are just playing games but i don't think there are three was accepted and i think the european union supports iran's we have to remember that this is not the first time that israel has accused iran of trying to build a bomb and the the prior evidence that they have actually provided has not held up we have to take this with a very large grain of salt and we also have to remember the timing i mean this is comey less than two weeks before trying to make a decision right regarding yes if the united states wants to stay in visual so absolutely no evidence so far. donald trump said that getting rid of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula will make the world a safer place we also expressed confidence that his meeting with kim jong un would
2:10 pm
happen soon this comes in the wake of friday's historic summit between the leaders of north and south korea during which the two sides committed to denuclearize ation and vowed to sign a proper peace treaty however don't trust national security advisor says that denuclearization should be based on what happened in libya. will president trump in the sickest that kim give up ship out all of those nuclear weapons all of those nuclear fuel all of those ballistic missiles before the u.s. makes any concessions yeah i think that's what denuclearization means and we have very much in mind the libyan model from two thousand and three two thousand and four back in two thousand and three libya agreed to eliminate its weapons of mass destruction but as my guest give explains the country didn't exactly benefit. remember the colonel colonel gadhafi he once had the nuclear program scary stuff
2:11 pm
a despot with nuclear weapons so the world sanctioned him pressured him punished him then chile colonel gadhafi offered to scrap his nuclear program the us and britain made the deal all hush hush they lifted sanctions resurrected relations made friends seven years later they came back and helped to kill him. he died painfully tortured alone in the desert his army having been obliterated by the u.s. britain and allies his murderous freedom fighters they called them then would go on to plunge libya into anarky killing thousands many and the place on terror lists later pundits in america in europe in korea would write that
2:12 pm
perhaps gadhafi giving up the only weapon that could have protected him was a bad idea in pyongyang's view the libyans took the economic bait foolishly disarmed themselves and once they were defenseless were mercilessly punished by the west the president a firm really been leaders gadhafi is brutal death does not offer much confidence can join in about a safe exit the libyan crisis is teaching the international community a great lesson iran when giving up its nuclear program thought it could get a better deal i want to ask if you're have made up your mind to pull out of that deal and if you do pull out of that deal do you think you worry that sends the wrong message to north korea as you see to enter nuclear talks with kim jong un no i think it sends the right message you know in seven years that deal will have expired and iran is free to go. go ahead and create nuclear weapons that's not acceptable seventy years is tomorrow that's not acceptable you can't help but
2:13 pm
wonder at the logic if there is any it's hard to tell sometimes with trump how is ripping up a nuclear disarmament deal a good thing or a good precedent maybe north korea will get it it has now floated the idea that it's too could give up its nuclear program it is important to be positive optimistic look forward don't think about what happened to the last few guys that gave up their nukes maybe mr bolton didn't think about what he was saying he does one north korea to the somme right not grow its nuclear arsenal and paranoia or perhaps mr bolton one of the most hawkish and militant officials in the us brought up libya on purpose it seems like they're telling the north koreans don't disarm when they do that because of course north korea like iraq for that matter disarm and then the u.s.
2:14 pm
invaded them and destroyed them and killed the leaders and killed all the people in the in the ruling circles so you can really tell mr trump when you i mean you know one moment endorsing peace at another moment is telling. mr kim that he's going to be. sodomized with a bad net like the. old market off or hang them as they did to saddam hussein if the north koreans feel the u.s. is going to destroy their country it would affect all the countries in that area. meanwhile south korea has started removing the loud speakers from its border with the north in light of the deescalation they used to send out pointed messages like these. i want to.
2:15 pm
the broadcast could be heard not only by north korean soldiers on the border but also by locals living close to it again the loudspeakers on both sides have regularly been removed and three installed several times following tensions in the escalations between the two koreas meanwhile the leader of south korea moon giant has even reportedly suggested donald trump get the nobel peace prize for his efforts to go republican reaction to that first of all in the united states. which world leader has done the most for world peace three. that's a tough one but i guess i'd point to him as a moon of south korea and can you point to which world leader has done the most for world peace out of these three. and was. there to tell us why. on all three trump the only one that's been able to get these people to talk to
2:16 pm
each other. the leader of south korea has suggested that donald trump be given the nobel prize i know he doesn't need you but. i find it difficult to give donald trump credit for anything is the world you have a oh my god. yeah that's not going to have. just hours before the united states was about to slump europe with huge import tariffs to steal another human in a special exemption has been extended and have been feared if the tariffs had come into force they would have triggered a full scale trade war let's go to washington our correspondent submitted covering the story so severe it does not mean that europe will be happy no. well we don't know as of yet but the u.s. has postponed imposing tariffs on steel in elem minium imports from the e.u. for another month now the exemption was set to expire tuesday but according to the u.s. secretary for commerce trump decided to extend it after some quote fruitful discussions
2:17 pm
about an overall reduction in trade tensions but europe wasn't too pleased to answer your question saying that the tariffs should be done away with completely now in addition to that the e.u. warned that it would not negotiate under threat and now these uncertainties have a negatively affected european businesses and check out what the. confederation of british industry had to say about it is the state exemption has only been granted for one extra month there's a sense of the can having been kicked down the road firms cannot continue making investment decisions based on short term uncertain deadlines now washington has been trying to force countries to accept quotas on steel an element of imports and they have until june first to accept washington the ultimatum now chancellor merkel and president mccrone even crossed the atlantic to talk to trump about this but it doesn't seem like it matters how touchy feely you get with trump his mind appears
2:18 pm
to be set. you know it sounds so nice to you. you know why i mean they literally did i so they formed to take advantage of the united states and i don't blame them now if tariffs are imposed the e.u. who happens to be washington strongest trading partner says it will retaliate by placing tariffs on lucrative american imports including quote harley-davidson motorcycles levi's jeans or issues and kentucky bourbon to name a few poses so now we will also pose import tariffs this is basically a stupid process the fact that we have to do this but we have to do it now impose tariffs on motorcycles harley davidson on blue jeans levis on bourbon we can also do stupid we also have to be this you see. so the good news is the trade
2:19 pm
war has been postponed for now but the question is a will europe backpedal many thanks our correspondent in washington d.c. samir khan bringing us right up to date. moving on to other news now a leading cancer surgeon in russia is raising awareness of the dangers of late diagnosis now he lost his campaign after he found himself too late that he has the disease and now has little chance of survival. metal the thickness of a chair now when there was no ovations comfort put from them that i was ill by chance had stomach ache took some pills to still decided to check the book the symptoms meant to scan clearly showed was true so a day later i already had no sex. with
2:20 pm
a judge and yeah the day i found out i told my wife to use for some presents for our kids she panicked started crying hines was shaking i tried to comfort her as i could told her treatment plans the hardest thing is to help my kids cope. and there's a lesson in there but. the main aim of the project is to give cancer patients as much information about the disease as possible currently the situations that we have a small so between the patient and doctor the patients must know everything about the disease the prognosis all possible complications and all the options.
2:21 pm
never get the funding because your friends have a college just one. special session of parliament has rejected the only candidate put forward for the vacant prime minister's posts that came after more than two weeks of massive protests demanding that nicole passion young be selected thousands of opposition supporters have been demonstrating in the center of the capital since the morning while the. watching the parliamentary session on special screens at the question and failed to be elected he called to block major roads railways and airports while supporters pledged to continue protesting till his quote victorious end earlier on tuesday he warned of a political send army he doesn't win if a candidate is rejected by parliament by armenian law a fresh vote must be held in the chamber within seven days if the prime minister is not confirmed for a second time parliament's then dismissed and fresh national elections are held in
2:22 pm
mass opposition protests started almost three weeks ago and forced previous prime minister says so sound to resign. has been revealed that more than half of migrants who are taking integration courses in germany have failed to pass basic language test that is the country's about to open its doors to even more asylum seekers peter all of has a story. for germany welcoming well over one million refugees and asylum applicants over the last three years was just the beginning the tough job comes in well integrating those people into german society that seems to be pretty much something everybody agrees on just ask the chancellor integrated story for the sake of the integration of deterring urging migrants has a very special meaning for us to meet the focus here is to learn german language those who speak german get better involved in our society. and
2:23 pm
a whole foreign is of curse the other challenges the big number of refugees in germany not to only register the trichy to task of integration the long term residency will only be granted for the refugees fulfill the task of integration and that things have not been going to plan the federal office for migration and refugees have just released their latest figures in relation to refugees and asylum applicants taking language courses the numbers make it pretty viewing less than half of those on the course the chief did basic level of language proficiency things like being able to go to the hospital go to the shops or apply for a job while just over forty percent achieved a lower level than that where they say you can understand but not speak the rest well they either failed the course or didn't complete it in its entirety and well that lets them bode well for people looking to get jobs that require qualifications
2:24 pm
the most of the general courses in germany. so have rested g.'s. needs another course they need advice from friends and other people to improve their germ skills you know for me it was a good day i had a lot of german friends so i was willing to integrate and so was a german course and to to go. school the integration program doesn't come cheap last year six hundred ten million euro of taxpayer money was funneled into it and they haven't seen a good return on their investment. it can be assumed that a large part of the funds spent were lost because the courses were characterized by dwindling numbers of participants at the top of the program say they need more time but acknowledge that one of the main reasons people don't pass is that they don't show up the classes but others acknowledge that some refugees traumatized by the
2:25 pm
experiences that they've heard while others don't come from a so-called learning culture having never attended school in their native country many off their. basic learning skills because many of. didn't attend school at all it dropped all to be early early and so it might pay to difficult for them to. a foreign language rich. refugees entitled to stay only temporarily abroad which they fled from this over have to return to their countries of origin and we should focus on. teaching them to skilled switch to need to reboot their country of origin instead of teaching them some very basic german mitch and along wrongness of no use for them it is a big paradox because. on the one side whites in populous want that
2:26 pm
migrants integrate themselves on the other side they say migrants are criminals they generalize they are their bets they bring about culture a primitive culture so this is a real damage because yes migrant i'm not mock debates myself when a guy has a lot of prejudices against me and says i'm a criminal and he doesn't know me i'm going to merkel announced just recently the germany will accept another ten thousand refugees in the very near future critics of that move for asking whether it's why take more people when germany's already struggling to integrate those who live here already. and finally this hour let's turn to some football celebrations now because barcelona and spain defender general p.k. turned cameraman as his side partied after winning their seventh spanish league title in ten years speak a grab the camera though from our colleagues at the rep video agency and gave is
