8:02 pm
all calm for the moment however those clashes we saw between the police and the protests as have been some of the most remote functionalists intense clashes i've seen in the last fifteen months or so in france i just want to give you a sense of what sort of damage has been created from those clashes not just the clashes but the damage that was caused by the protesters 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 capitalist by anti fascists and they were indeed they came out in their hundreds ready with a gear their 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 proclamations 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
8:03 pm
part of paris and the police had to let them be however when they came in 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 middle of cashews now starting when the police wanted to have a look around 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 emerged a bike and as you can see smoke. 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 and the foam that's been on the ground to try
8:04 pm
and push these protesters back i 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 did is if you just turn around a little bit more what kills me to have a look at this you may see this big. dog smoke coming up here on the protesters what they did is they lit a fire it see what seemed to be some sort of motorbike and because this protest is due to continue these guys say they want an antique up to the 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 shola.
8:05 pm
paris. more than two hundred people have been arrested over the clashes according to police but france was not the only country to witness clashes between police and protesters both turkey and greece also saw their labor day rallies turn violent however many nations enjoyed more peaceful demonstrations including in russia germany and 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 thousands of documents and c.d.'s as evidence along with a powerpoint presentation and it comes just a twelve days before donald trump is expected 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
8:06 pm
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 we all here was sure iran has one reason and one reason only to hide this information why would a terrorist regime. hide and meticulously catalog good secret nuclear files is not to use them a good leader do a state hiding its nuclear weapons program what other country would do such a thing some will remember netanyahu has 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. it would never have been concluded.
8:07 pm
and in a few days. president trump. will decide well makers the solution and what to do with the nuclear deal. i'm sure he'll do the right thing. the right 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
8:08 pm
regional power balance hailed as a huge diplomatic success the iran nuclear deal was hammered out back in two thousand and fifteen between the u.s. china the u.k. russia france germany and iran the negotiations took nine years ending a long standoff tehran agreed to strict limits on its nuclear program and to open facilities to international experts in return some sanctions against the country were lifted after netanyahu promised to share his data with the world germany and france both said it needs to be studied in detail however the white house backed netanyahu presentations saying iran tried and failed to hide its activities from the world that statement contradicts data from the nuclear watchdog the international atomic energy agency the e.u.'s foreign policy chief in turn said netanyahu is claims don't put into question iran's compliance with the deal we heard reaction from people in the iranian capital. now that sam is in the white house and you know cons are. having influence on him it seems to be. what he's
8:09 pm
after against to break the deal and make him make up put out of the. certainly if the israelis had precise information and it could be investigated in a serious manner they would take action financed because they know they have to do something to get exults in a much shorter time. than a diet she ran has been committed to all its promises now 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 daniel mcadams executive director at the ron paul institute said he believes that netanyahu wants to maneuver the u.s. into a confrontation with iran netanyahu knows very well that he cannot take on iran on its own bibi is playing trump like a fiddle but look around trouble has got all the same losers that were in power in two thousand and two who lied us into going into iraq we're supposed to believe
8:10 pm
that somehow just a week or so before trump has to make a decision on iran that all of a sudden it come into this amazing information here let us rush to share with you this information telling you how evil they are it's all pure b.s. it's just like is ridiculous vom thing at the u.n. it's just a desperate ploy to lie us into another war. netanyahu is an unusual way of presenting his proof on iran's nuclear program stimulated quite a response online and twitter users didn't hesitate to chime in.
8:11 pm
donald trump has said that getting rid of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula will make of the world a safer place he also expressed confidence his meeting with kim jong il would happen soon comes in the wake of friday's historic summit between the leaders of north and south korea at that meeting the two sides committed to denuclearization and vowed to sign a permanent peace treaty. however dollar trumps national security adviser says denuclearization should be based on what happened in libya will president trump in assist that can give op ship out all of the nuclear weapons all of his 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
8:12 pm
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 because art is not out of gaza have comments that the country did not exactly benefit. remember the colonel colonel gadhafi he once had the nuclear program scary stuff a despot with nuclear weapons so the world sanctioned him pressured him punished him eventually colonel gadhafi offered to scrap his nuclear program the u.s. 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
8:13 pm
the u.s. britain and allies his murderous freedom fighters they called them then would go on to plunge libya into our naki killing thousands many and the place on terror lists later pundits in america in europe in korea would write that 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 his 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
8:14 pm
deal and if you do pull out of the 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. ahead and create nuclear weapons that's not acceptable seventy years is tomorrow that's not acceptable you can't help but 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 in paranoia or
8:15 pm
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. invaded them and destroy them and killed the leaders and killed all the people in the in the ruling circles so you can really tell us the crumpton you i mean you've got one moment endorsing peace at another moment is telling. mr kim that he's going to be. sodomized with a band that like the. old market 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 have started all the countries in that area donald trump has postponed a new tariffs from coming into force against the e.u.
8:16 pm
but very few years a trade war is still on the horizon that story much more still to come stay with us . thank. you. i put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be
8:17 pm
president and. want to. have to go on to be this is what will befall extremal people. interested always in the waters of our. city. this is our national live from moscow just hours before the u.s. was about to slap the e.u. with huge import tariffs on the steel and aluminum the special exemption has been extended for another month it had been feared that if the tariffs had come into force they could have triggered a full scale trade war and he's american reports now from washington. one would think that europe would be happy with trump's decision to extend the exemption for another month but europe wasn't too pleased 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 these uncertainties however have
8:18 pm
negatively affected european businesses is the state exemption has only been granted for one extra month there's a sense of the cam having been kicked down the road firms cannot continue making investment decisions based on short term uncertain deadlines 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's ultimatum things are so tense that chancellor merkel and president across even across 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 to be set you know it sounds so nice to. 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 if tariffs are imposed the e.u. which happens to be washington strongest trading partner says it will retaliate by placing tariffs on lucrative american imports including harley davidson motorcycles
8:19 pm
levi jeans orange juice and kentucky bourbon to name a few. so now we will also impose import tariffs this is basically a stupid process the fact that we have to do this but we have to do it we were not impose tariffs on motorcycles harley davidson on blue jeans levis but we can also do stupid we also have to be this stupid so the good news is the trade war has been postponed for now but the question is will europe back pedal. well the editorial director at the american institute for economic research jeffrey tucker told us that trump has been thinking about waging a trade war from the very start trade war is what he intended from the moment he put his hand on the bible and took the oath of office i don't think he wants to come to a good resolution to this conflict he wants to create the conflicts and then keep creating and keep creating the conflicts he's a convinced economic nationalist he really believes in this in this part that if he
8:20 pm
can create an american national machine or production that's not the end of it on europe canada and the rest of the world that this will somehow be good for america don't trump believes in a zero sum kind of world it's like either america wins or america loses it's very difficult to say who's got the most to lose everyone has something to lose american producers and consumers and all of european producers and consumers i must say is an american i'm very embarrassed and this is what we've come to. a leading cancer specialist in russia is raising awareness of the dangers of late diagnosis he launched his campaign after he himself found out too late to vote he has the disease and he now has little chance of surviving.
8:21 pm
those are the signals for chan on when there was no real vision discomfort or found out that i was ill but chose to have stomach ache took some pills to still decided to check the book the symptoms meant the scan clearly showed it wasn't schumacher so a day later i already had the prognosis physical. with a judge and yeah but to go with the day i found out i told my wife the news in full some presents for our kids she panicked started crying hines was shaking and i tried to comfort her as i could told her all my treatment plans the hardest thing is to help my kids cope. as election in there but at the hague. the main aim of the project is to give cancer
8:22 pm
patients as much information about the disease as possible currently the situations that we have a sort of between the patient and the doctor the patients must know everything about the disease the prognosis of all possible complications and all the options. they have yet to undertake arch his friend of a college just like. it has turned out more than half of migrants who are taking integration courses in germany have failed to pass basic language tests and that comes as the country prepares to top and its doors to even more asylum seekers picks up steam. 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
8:23 pm
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. is of course the other challenge is the big number of refugees in germany not to only register the to achieve the task of integration a long term residency will only be granted for the refugees fulfill the task of integration and that is 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 take language courses the numbers make for 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
8:24 pm
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 devoted most of the german courses in germany. have rested g.'s. needs another course they need advice from friends and other people to improve their germs girls need to was a good day i had a lot of german friends so i was i willing to integrate and two was a german chorus and two goats. 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
8:25 pm
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 with classes but others acknowledge that some refugees traumatized by the experiences that they've had 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 too early. so it might pay to difficult for them to. a foreign language which. refugees entitled to stay only temporarily abroad which they fled from this over to return to their country itself journey and we should focus on. teaching them to
8:26 pm
scared switched to need to reboot their country of origin instead of teaching them some very basic bitch and a long wrongness of nor us what. it is a big paradox or because. on the one side whites and populists want that migrants integrate themselves on the other side they say migrants are criminals they generalize they are they are bad so they bring a bad culture a primitive culture so this is a real damage because yes migrant i'm not mock debates it's 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 that you. he would accept and know that ten thousand refugees in the very near future critics of the move for asking whether it's weiss to take more people when germany's already struggling to integrate those who live here already.
8:27 pm
