9:30 pm
yes in exchange for some sanctions being lifted iran agreed to strict limits on its nuclear program and to open up its facilities to international experts that deals currently in big jeopardy there because the us president has long been a vocal critic of it is now deciding imminently whether to walk away or not many analysts know sorbet even yeah its presentation as an attempt to try to convince donald trump that indeed it should be abandoned and the war activists christe nine and told us he also thinks it's paving the way for america to pull out. the only conclusion you can draw from that is that this was likely part of an operation to try and bounce the u.s. to try and give credibility to donald trump's efforts is his is apparent plan to walk out walk away from the from the treaty with iran so it seems it seems a reasonable assumption to make that that is actually what was behind this effort by benjamin netanyahu the stakes really are very very high here and you know is one
9:31 pm
of the few. to deal with iran was one of the few successes of. foreign policy in the region it was one of the things that is actually kind of create at least the hope that some of the problems in the region could be resolved if that's broken we're in very very dangerous territory. a group whose wedding in yemen last month as was hit by what was thought to have been a saudi led air strike has been describing the absolute horror of what occurred when the mist of struck killing at least twenty family members and friends is among the survivors have been telling their story exclusively to r.t. . at the moment of the bomb the rocket landed and the whole world turned red and i thought i was turning in the air and many were killed by shrapnel . there was some victims who were tune in home others were injured in the stomach
9:32 pm
head neck hands or licks my cousin and other relatives were injured. one hour then i came to see the wedding i was looking at people dancing and then. i was here my lad the shrapnel from the rocket. we went to the wedding and suddenly during the celebration the strike came we didn't have anything there are no weapons no nothing i lost a foot the same happened to my brother my other brother died because of the bombing we tried to flee but could not walk we had to wait until ambulances came and got us a dozen of the wounded are in a critical condition still yet to hear from the saudi led coalition to our request for an update on its investigation into what actually happened there a saudi led military operation in yemen was launched against the rebels who control vast territories in the north the saudis have repeatedly insisted that they do not
9:33 pm
target civilians the coalition has carried out a number of its own investigations into where strikes that lead to mass casualties along the way as rights groups continue to call on saudi arabia too and that conflict. is a controversial one the iconic boy scouts of america are about to undergo a rebranding of sorts after a long one hundred eight years it seems the decision to drop the word boy from its name which is going to happen early next year is the organization welcomes girls into its ranks isn't the only popular one. i. know you're right we wanted to land on something that evokes the bass but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward we're trying to find the right way to say we're here for both young men and young women.
9:34 pm
girl scouts is a premier leadership development organisation for girls we are and will remain the first choice for girls and parents. let's be honest the boy scouts as we knew it is now effectively dead goals are not supposed to be a part of the boy scouts they have their own organization called go scout as a form of boy scouts i say this is a terrible idea boys need to be with other boys at times without girls being present to be boys the boy scouts are open the doors to girls are losing membership and money feminists are loving the boy scouts move not realizing it may destroy the women run because scouts. so where do you stand on this tonight is it a good move it is a bad move on one side is being heralded as a long overdue inclusive it's
9:35 pm
a on the other side its leaders it claims that it's another move simply to demonize anything this gender specific scouts name change so far a discussion here earlier an ati. there isn't a great deal of evidence to suggest that only boys want to do traditionally male activities and only girls want to do traditionally female activities there is very very obviously there are a lot of doctor like climbing trees and there are lots of way there is like baking cakes and to try to say to young people you have to only do this what we should of course to do is give them a range of activities on sunday letting them actually encourage them to try new stuff because that's what our it is what it is or i have found that's not what this is about and you know it there was an absolute determined effort to destroy whatever was left of this thing called the jones or it's now considered almost like races or inappropriate to do anything to distinguish boys from girls who are
9:36 pm
playing it so safe we've got the helmets there was a time when if you were a red blooded american male that's not how they're always learned to have kids you know his writing large and cried i read here and there i mean fine and there was nothing wrong with it i'm kind of concerned with the idea that it's somehow great to encourage boys to to fight and be super of super rough and super violent with each other i think that this is two thousand and eighteen and the idea that it's somehow good for young men to be thrown into some sort of boxing ring i think that we should offer young people boys and girls a whole range of activities and there are definitely arguments in favor of allowing them to do some of those activities and violent marriage definitely arguments in favor of allowing them to do at least some of those activities mixed environment what you're seeing is the woods sophistication of just boys and girls and how we are just turning their men to just these these i don't know these hominids or these kids who don't play who don't enjoy doing things like the idea that we did being
9:37 pm
a boy and roughhousing those people think that this is absurd kids are not allowed to be kids. the more if you look at the kind of science of it where young people do best it turns out perhaps surprisingly perhaps unsurprisingly that goals seem to thrive better in single sex environments for things like that but boys actually seem to thrive better in mixed environments it seems like having some girls join in maybe takes away some of the sort of culture if you like people are afraid that there are genders and that boys like to do boys stuff and their girls like to do girls stuff it's not accurate mistake it's true. for this because some of our breaking news story is coming at the top of the twenty minutes ago details in from the czech republic the church president has admitted on national television virally that the nerve agent had at one point been produced and stored in one of the country's military laboratories he darcy's officials look into this the end of
9:38 pm
march one of the twenty six of march. earlier very mentally denied being involved in handling the substance with george some really senior research fellow at the global policy institute at london metropolitan university a bit of a turnaround here from what i'm reading than what you know about it what your initial reaction is potentially quite a turnaround for the czechs claims up to now when they said no no we haven't but it seems he asked his security services to say the end of march and it seems he's come back and said yeah we made that stuff what are the implications of that. well equipped serious i mean if true then it really does blow the whole british american thesis out of the water. because the british american thesis was that nobody bought of the russians could have produced it even though no evidence of ever being produced to suggest that. it ever was manufactured in russia
9:39 pm
and. the people from anywhere in the world could not have done it i mean the formula had been published in the united states already some years ago so any you know we've had professors of organic chemistry say in public that pretty much any ph d. student in organic chemistry would have been able to produce it in a reasonably good marjorie we have and now if. what the czechs are saying today proves to be correct then it really exploding entire british american thesis so should the czech republic now be doing a thorough investigation as to whether there could have been any link into the script was poisoning ins in salzburg of march absolutely they should be. and in fact given that the czech republic is a member of nato and has been a member of nato for twenty years and. the other nato powers and he the u.k.
9:40 pm
and the united states should be very actively pursuing this matter with the czechs because this is a this is a very serious business and they leveled very serious charges not allowing for any doubt whatsoever that the russians were the ones who manufactured this age and depending on who you talk to we've had a number of russian eminent scientists and foreign as well saying well there are at least twenty labs around the world that could have made this kind of thing but now we're hearing the czech republic may be in on it as well the russians said numerous times that other countries could have been involved in making novacek should the un chemicals watchdog now ask those countries to look closer into those claims. absolutely they should. given that this chemical formula had been published by a russian scientist who had defected to the united states given the information
9:41 pm
that we've received that the united states had actually patented the novacek this is indeed a very serious matter for the signatories of the chemical weapons convention what has actually been going on now because the united states has actually make no pretense of giving up its chemical weapons arsenal but other countries have and so they they absolutely should be looking into this matter of you know when was this so program in place in the czech republic when was it terminated if ever and if it wasn't terminated is this still ongoing how is this news going to be greeted in britain tonight the british authorities the investigation is still ongoing it's highly secret they certainly haven't said very much to russia about it is a huge cleanup on the way apparently still it's going to take a long time and solsbury other british going to listen to this tonight with any seriousness and help oh absolutely not i mean the british have been absolutely deceitful from the start i mean the one hand they're still doing all this
9:42 pm
ridiculous cleanup in seoul's very while at the same time claiming that the duma the russians have somehow disposed of all the oh all chemical weapons before the. c.w. expect me to go to the right so no that absolute not only of course all the other aspects of the earth the british case have been falling apart as well including the script hours recovery and then the script files a mysterious disappearance just to get a handle on this is to be absolutely clear there's no suggestion that progress on the attack of course it's just something else that's to be considered here i guess given the information we've got in the information just really a bit more from the czech republic president says they produce some very. a small quantities of it and he goes on to say more in now that they destroyed it but i say disregarding all that it seems he did ask his authorities when by the twenty sixth of march they've come back and said yes well we did make that. maybe you thought he
9:43 pm
may have known about this before very soon after this cripple attack you were thought he'd ask questions a bit sooner but so it is something else into the fire in a way tonight to certainly check out do you think it's going to be taken seriously on all sides. no i think that it will be taken seriously by russia. and nato as is nature's ones or the nato powers one will try to sweep it under the rug and so there will basically the media oh will probably do a silence on it and maybe you know return to it at some point if they can find some angle in order to discredit the story well this really goes george we've got to leave it there figure as much for your time coming on the last minute they give us your thoughts of this your son billy senior research fellow at the global policy institute at london university thanks to. facebook's looking to regain its users trust in the wake of that huge data harvesting scandal involving cambridge analytic and the social media be he more is known to choosing
9:44 pm
a number of changes to the platform including a personalized news filter jacqueline bouvier takes a closer look at what the proposals are. facebook is working hard to revamp its public profile in the wake of the privacy scandal and the platforms move to eliminate fake news from your feed is one such example i have your responsibility muses to things make sure people can get trustworthy news in our platform and then we're doing our job to help build a sense of common ground in society now who's to decide what news organizations are worthy the company's two billion users the social network has already started using the result of user surveys to determine what news publications will be popping up in your feed and which will be suppressed and the range of outlet is based on two simple questions have you heard of them and how much do you trust them and that means what's to be believed is based on the opinions of the internet not necessarily facts even flat earth there isn't burgers may have cast their votes. we put that data into the system and insights and is
9:45 pm
a booster of suppression and we're going to dial up the intense to that over time we feel that we have a responsibility to further break down polarization and find common ground some other marketing goals given that the internet isn't exactly known for bringing out the best in people there's also surely a risk that such a system will only cause people to further dig in their heels not break down polarization or brick hopes a result that was seen with one of facebook's previous attempts at tackling fake news last year the company pulled the plug on its initiative which had third party fact checkers red flagging disputed articles as it didn't have the desired effect i could them agree search and correcting misinformation has shown that putting the strong image like a red flag next to an article may actually entrenched deeply held beliefs the opposite of fact to what we intended the big issue here is what what they mean is this credible or informative new source is it what fits mark zuckerberg political view is it what it's facebook's political view. in terms of unbiased independent
9:46 pm
journalism i don't see a big success at all i don't see anything which puts a private corporation like facebook who has shown to be not the most trusting of sources of light i don't see anything that putting them in charge of this kind of responsibility could turn out to be successful in a way shape or form for independent journalism so here we are again watching and waiting to see how facebook's latest attempt at social responsibility pans out. and parallel to this facebook is also facing criticism over its filtering of news sources and so much of this a calling a form of censorship one organization that's called the us conservative leaders claims the suppression of right wing news only social media's reach crisis point now they say outlets from both sides of the political spectrum should be respected and given equal waiting online but with recent major gains in elections across the globe new yorkers what exactly they know about the right wing sunday's elections in austria where the latest example of
9:47 pm
a shift to the right in europe's politics this this shows that the far right wing has won it's prevailed polls in germany predict that a far right party will enter parliament the term right wing is being used pretty liberally these days we decided to ask americans what does far right or right wing actually mean let's see what kind of answers we get what is far right mean your own way but that be like a nazi and your extreme. capitalists views it's probably a more militant version of right wing. maybe a little more inner. an artistic view on the world's. largest is probably a more extreme viewpoint a far right for right means very far right. what does that mean on the right side very far ok donald trump is far right i think he's trying to come to the center because he has to administer it right and he was more far right
9:48 pm
before he became the president i think he's all over the place to tell you the truth i don't know that he has an ideology other than donald trump no not necessarily the he's right of center definitely yes but i mean the fact is he's a former democrat he's not that far right any world leaders that you would consider to be far right. right fundamentalist leaders are far right. and. i think he's right yeah maybe putin but like i don't know you you want i'm not sure. he's considered far right dick durbin may be. prime minister of austria perhaps. i don't know there might be a few others it seems that in politics words can be rather hard to define caleb mop and art see in new york former u.s. diplomat jim jefferies believes is a multifaceted effort by social media platforms these days to sideline views the
9:49 pm
don't fit with the company's political agenda i think there's a real concerns that the conservative voices are being discriminated against in social media not only facebook but twitter which i use quite a bit and google and the the idea would be to marginalize or stigmatize conservative voices as somehow being beyond the limits of legitimate discussion and we also have practices what they call shadow banning where there are there are ways to downgrade content if it's politically not correct so that it has fewer viewers that they try to deem monetize conservative voices so that they can't actually support their platforms in the way that voices on the left are able to do it which evidently is more acceptable in the circles and that in which the managers of these platforms operate. president mccrone is jetted off to french overseas territory
