and yet there's a lack of water and there's a lack of electricity going back and potentially finding their bodies in your house in your street i mean that's that's. very different stating because once again you're confronted to it's all the horrible things that happen in mosul increasing number of people return but there's no access to health care there's no more for example emergency room physician or surgical facilities there's not enough hospital beds and yet there are still people who are good wounded from collapsing how. well the horror of war can also be seen in the syrian city of iraq the bodies of more than twelve hundred civilians majority of them being women and children have been discovered in three mass graves there it's claimed most of them were killed when the u.s. led coalition bombed the area firing all thirty thousand dollars to reruns and launching thought first strikes during the course of a few months igor said of brings us this report. tobar will mark exactly one year

since i saw defeat in their caliphate self-proclaimed capital rocker and months after the u.s. coalition's victory restored or freed of torment the syrian city is still not these are the latest pictures from one of three recently discovered mars graves these burial sites contain more than a thousand bodies there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass grave grew to four catacombs are completely full of did bodies grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones where excavated the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where are the birds as they were buried by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to call to find them the majority of bodies or civilians

mostly women and children and let him work twenty four hours a day whether it's a civilian or a fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand down and that's just in the three recently discovered mass graves took the dog to have modern tools we just rely on basic information families help us identify the civilians we identify a lot of bodies from here because it does not disintegrate it's a race against time and they're ready to earn their more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless and mass graves of raka highlight not only i solved monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy the coalition has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand artillery rounds and third rule fails and strikes it launched into rock
5:03 pm
a city the blustery denials a contradictory. by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these were taking only a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble that was that an effect in washington we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that of
5:04 pm
that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using force for us it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brenda mely if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still to be found houses of people who were killed during the battle to retake the city. maybe were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble or at least in mass graves each one has to be dozens to hundreds of bodies and it was really hard to make such as to beaches but that's what we know tories are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because they are many of the catered to conduct examinations because they are the mines around there it is clear from what we have seen on the ground that they are working to exhibit bodies. far more creative.

but until someone answers the pleas of rucker's citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. will sting in the middle east after a recent violence on the girls' a border the islamist militant group hamas sees it has agreed to a cease fire with israel on friday for palestinians three of whom are hamas militants and in this release soldiers were killed during clashes that prompted a series of very strikes on hamas positions leading to fears of all confrontation as artie's paulus leader explains. there is an easy calm that has descended along the israel gaza border that ceasefire went into effect at midnight and we have heard from the israeli army that civilians who live along the israel gaza border can return to normal routine we're hearing the same message from hamas hopes person
5:06 pm
who says that they have agreed to return to the era of calm between israel and the palestinian factions it follows a night of heavy air strikes conducted by the israeli air force over gaza they say they hit some sixty targets while at the same time three projectiles were fired at israel by palestinian militants and a friday deadline given by israel to her months in which it said that all awesome kites that were flown into israel had to cease came and went with those kites israel says that its actions were merely tell a tree and it holds her mass responsible the idea of. activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with great severity hamas choose to the security situation and move the consequences for its actions last night strikes were the worst we've seen since two thousand and fourteen where between israel and hamas in that war more than two thousand palestinians were killed and seventy three israelis now there was an israeli airstrike
5:07 pm
a heavy israeli airstrike earlier in the week we are hearing from the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that he will continue to strike back at her most during the sabbath we hit hard our policy is clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great force this is just the second ceasefire in some six days so of course the question is then asked whether or not it will hold egypt in the united nations brokered both cease fires and what we have heard from the united nations is that a massive full scale war was averted tensions on the ground however the main tense people are using and the question of course is if and when will be another showdown when i ask people here their question most people believe there will be a showdown is just a question of when. a political commentator amir or and the former director of a palestinian civil rights organization more soon abu ahmed i'm sure there are views on the recent escalation. hundreds of palestinians if you accumulate the
5:08 pm
numbers have either died or been injured at the demonstrations but this is not happened because israel has used force. to the contrary israel only reacted and israel tried to keep the entire border quiet if he's not in its interest to try and repel. but the scene and will show did to from you to sort of does without any dangerous. from tim to that is that you deserve does it just isn't it. a voice is asking the international community. to intercede and get of movement and can look at this to the to the senior to live as normal people would. be and live in the. students in english university remove a poem from a campus building the scribing or third brood yard kipling was

5:10 pm
with no leverage they have a zero work against the e.u. therefore they've lost tragically against you and their colleagues being marginalized and isolated as a result of it they completely misstated our misunderstood there at the equation between the u.k. and the e.u. when it comes to business of. sixty minutes into the program welcome back a media blitz funded by the us government has to lead to a series of odds it placed on facebook which targeted american audiences radio liberty was audited for potentially violating u.s. laws meant to shield citizens from domestic propaganda picking up the story kill a month but now it turns out that one news outlet has been forced to remove its political ads from facebook was the u.s.
5:11 pm
government's own radio free europe aka radio liberty here's an extract from their mission statement which of course you can find on their web site which ends in dot gov. a mission is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where free press is banned by the government who are not fully established journalists provide what many people cannot get locally on since that news response will discussion an open debate perhaps they consider the united states to be one of those countries that doesn't have a free press after all the ads were specifically targeted at americans now facebook says the ads were not political which is rather interesting as they were specifically related to recent controversies regarding trump and to nato. sixty one percent of the surveyed population in twelve countries view nato favorably it's actually illegal for federally funded news outlets under the umbrella of the
5:12 pm
broadcast board of governors to direct their content at an american audience the only exception is by special request and there was none in the case of radio liberty after new york times journalists raised a red flag the board of governors deleted the ads none of the b.b.c. now were should be distributing or promoting our content massacree in order to develop or grow domestic audiences but why would facebook allow ads about nato to begin with this is just after facebook has imposed strict rules regarding commercials with political content in the united states r.t. materials frequently banned and that's even when it's not directed at an american audience. and issue ads on facebook and instagram in the u.s. must be clearly labeled including a paid for by disclosure from the advertiser at the top of the ad it turns out that the rules about what constitutes a political ad are pretty big as far as facebook is concerned any r.t.
5:13 pm
news related to the usa is a political advert meanwhile a commercial specifically talking about how everyone loves nato is not now russian scholar shonda laurie recently tried to promote in an interview about his recently published compendium of coverage of donald trump from russian magazines and newspapers face book shut him down for his book one to prove my it for the sport cost apparently one of the russian press thinks of trump is dangerous information there's a double standard if you want to break the rules to help defend freedom ok which is which is really not possible it's illogical they've constantly lived in this state of a false reality where. it's ok to propagandize and to blanket the rest of the world with a cia funded message but it's not ok for russia to finance or to partially even
5:14 pm
finance a great television network that's competitive with the b.b.c. for news now from asia why is that not ok all this talk about fake news and propaganda has put the us political establishment and tech giants like facebook in a pretty difficult spot basically they've been reduced to saying we can't promote it if we don't agree with it caleb mop and r.t. new york. a we've asked facebook the broadcasting board of governors to comment on the case so far they have chosen not to respond. in the u.k. a poem by british writer ruud yard kipling has been removed by students of the university of manchester they say the author who's best known for writing the jungle book was racist the poem if penned in nineteen zero nine was displayed in

5:16 pm
a little bit different i think. everything in a tar in period is significant and as i write. buteux we can look at diaries and different views and attitudes now i think we can learn a little bit from that you know that it was a bad thing today we know it's not right now but still you know it's people doing in the past i don't think the mission district called them as people or that was because of an opinion they have the obviously i think there been many great artists also in this museum been fighting the search in a stake and. problematic people in their private lives but that doesn't necessarily mean that there are going to be that values but it also can mean that so it should be acknowledged and it should be they're open for discussion but the fate of the it shouldn't be censored. while kipling is not the only author whose work has been criticised recently here's a few other examples. where
