victory in world war two with a record ten million people marching nationwide to want to relatives who fought for freedom. in france watching out international live from moscow this bringing to the weekly around the pov some of the main news stories of the last seven days that we can fit in this next twenty five minutes well first off a story last night in paris just over twenty four hours ago it's been reported the suspect behind that knife attack there in the city on saturday night was viewed by french intelligence as a possible threat to national security the man whose thoughts have been a chechen born french citizen was shot dead after he killed a passer by in the city's opera district four others were also injured in the assault two of them seriously this photo. we had
5:02 pm
a player some of you know you can see taken from a nearby balcony appears to show the crime scene and there's a broader video taken from a bit further back as well coming up next this video is also been circulated in the wake of the incident it shows people fleeing get away from the area best they can and you can also see some forensic experts inspecting the site as well there we go in this next bit of video that's come through right let's get a better idea of where this happened when i say it was really in the center of moscow paris really busy time of night weather was nice just north of the museum that's where it happened in an area popular with tourists and teeming with cafes bars and restaurants i still says it was behind the attack that we can't verify that information isa early reports next from the sea. it was here that the attack took place late on saturday evening in the very busy offer district of paris people were shouting for the police and we saw
5:03 pm
a guy lying on the street right on the cross walk with blood on his shirt if i had been run over or maybe. and it took us a little while to figure out he had maybe been stabbed in the course of that attack the police fired shots in order to kill the terrorists and actually we can see some of the bullet holes in one of the ball windows some news has emerged of the terrorists who carried out that attack he's thought to be a chechnyan who received french citizenship in two thousand and ten and interestingly he was known to police he had been put on a list of people who had known extreme views and that follows a pattern we've seen repeatedly. many instances of people who have carried out terrorist attacks they've been known to police and once they've carried out those attacks it's then emerged later on and we have seen that there have been meetings
5:04 pm
held by the interior ministry to try to establish more information about the terrorists who carried out that attack many of those who were present at the time sought refuge in this restaurant lunch day which is a british restaurants and something which many people have seen here in paris many times before civilians fleeing for safety and ducking into restaurants and bars to get away from danger we were standing in the street looking what was happening and the attacker came down this road here with his hands covered in blood holding a knife. we had three policeman on foot here and he went towards them. they tried. taser him twice didn't work. either managed to isolate one of them and. moved down the street attacking trying to attack him and there were two
5:05 pm
shots fired and. he was shot dead two metres in front of the restaurant it comes on the first anniversary of the eve of the first verse three of the rule of a man who will not cross and that would lead presumably to the same questions that will be asked of mr all and where doubts are being raised whether he could provide security for france the citizens and mr marquand will be hoping he doesn't face the same accusations here since twenty fifteen well over two hundred people have lost their lives in terror attacks in france the most deadly rock paris in november of the year there are many smaller scale incidents across the country to love what we saw last night in a lot of cases not just in france but in europe to the broader europe it turned towards the perpetrators were actually known to police.
5:06 pm
it was it was. it. a fall just last i would chose bridges security analyst and former counterterrorism intelligence officer he told me security services could never be one hundred
5:07 pm
percent effective any terror attack getting through is in one way or another a failure of intelligence services because their primary aim is to prevent these attacks but ironically on ironically perhaps we should also see that it depending on the circumstances it isn't possible or we have to accept that it is impossible to keep everybody under surveillance all of the time nor would anybody want that situation it may be that there are more deserving suspects of surveillance at the moment but that would depend on the factors that were taken into consent of consideration at the time but at the same time there always will be people who will get through especially in a case like this where it hasn't appeared to have acquired any proper preparation or indeed any if you like coconspirators that might have reported on into the or thought it. as a correspondent was saying this report just now the latest attack comes as the french president proposed to mark his first year in office in paris thousands of marched against a man whom across pro-business economic forms protesters say there might be
5:08 pm
a simple assault on workers' rights it's the latest in a series of rallies across france in recent months a number of which have been marred by violence and clashes with the police. but the news from the week just gone the rift in the european and american relations widened this last week after donald trump decided to pull out from that big of run nuclear deal now his national security adviser says it's possible that he you companies could face sanctions if they continue doing business with iran is the u.s. going to impose sanctions on european companies that continue to do business with iran i think it would give the answer you see the answer is it's possible it depends on the kind of other governments donald trump announced on tuesday that he is pulling the u.s. out of the big nuclear agreement with iran sparking anger among evil leaders that. i am announcing today that the united states will withdraw from the a rare nuclear deal. and i think it is not right to you know actually cancel
5:09 pm
a deal that was agreed upon screening and shouting insulting and bullying that diminishes confidence in the international order systematically destroying dismantling everything what do we want to be able to be blinded to what americans tell them if you can if we always say that if we don't like things and we can't achieve any new international order everyone will do what they feel like that's bad news for the world. the deal was signed in twenty fifteen after years of hard fought talks as a result europe started doing business with iran the sanctions were eased and there are some major firms not likely to lose the u.s. is withdrawing from the agreement for most of the q. playmaker face it perhaps the biggest knock its sign contracts worth more than twenty billion dollars with. as for their side officials meantime have described america's movers unlawful and said to run is preparing to restart its nuclear program on an industrial scale its president has said though that he will speak
5:10 pm
with the other signatories to the deal before that with more detail on this huge story from last week he goes down off. another statement from trump and we are in for another treat it's so juicy you can't help but savor it let's take it from the top we'll see how we do with the rare probably we would do very well with them but that's ok too of course he probably won't do very well with iran he just we may go on a deal that let the country's economy breathe more freely for the first time in decades and by a chain reaction trump probably won't get along with a bunch of other countries either yes all those nations who decided to stay in the deal reiterating their support for it is deal is not about actual treaty it's a un security council resolution and it belongs to the entire words no single country alone and destroy the deal but can't undo the deal because all the others
5:11 pm
stay in did trump see this coming the rift with his own allies probably doesn't matter that much after all the america first mantra got trump elected and if you don't get it you're in for a life lesson they. understand. life because i don't think they do understand like we could has a whole article on american exceptionalism and this tirade could very well at a section to it we get it mr trump you say understand life we hear understand how america wants it and roll over and play and here's why according to trump everyone should be on board with his iran decision if you look at what's happening in the middle east with syria with yemen with all of the places there involved it's bedlam and and we can't allow that to happen what a set of arguments apparently it's ok to support saudi arabia and their bombings of
5:12 pm
yemen a deadly come pain that resulted in the world's worst manmade humanitarian crisis all courtesy of american. weapons american logistical support and american intelligence and with syria i must have missed the moment when iran joined the u.s. in sending money and weapons to jihadist armed groups seeking regime change trump has laid out a list of demands to iran most notably he called on to iran to drop the quote quest to destroy israel an explicit indicator of who trumps trying to court him and this is how we run feels about trump's move. and the american flag isn't the only thing in tatters now so is the iran nuclear
5:13 pm
deal which has left europe scrambling for a response in it is never good for us to break the laws that we ourselves helped to create why because how can you convince powers that occasionally use force or violence that don't respect international law to follow our example when we don't even follow that example ourselves one thing is clear though they won't be taking a leaf out of donald's art of the deal whole world trust the united states or enter the treaty or not wish me a treaty or a deal with the united states if one president. of plaything another president named gate on that deal he put american trust american credibility on the line and here the american does not on our it's word. clashes erupted in jerusalem earlier as israeli celebrated the anniversary of the one nine hundred sixty seven and exaggeration of the eastern part of the holy city the
