a small english town gets a shock as it's a run down the streets appear in a republican attack ad in the u.s. . russia's space agency says a faulty sensor caused a failed rocket launch last month in which the two man crew safely objected. and western officials and athletes accused the world anti-doping agency of damaging clean sports after its decision to reinstate russia. are broadcasting live from our studios most of this is our chief international i'm sean thomas certainly glad to have you. those now a small seaside town in the u.k.
has found itself in the spotlight pictured as a rundown backwater by the u.s. republicans an image of jay wicks and twice named as britain's most deprived area has become headline news before the midterm elections in america are his public worker explains why. what links this essex seaside town to the upcoming u.s. mid-term elections and insensitive political advice that's what locals here in jail exxon's in essex have been left fuming after a pro trump republican candidate for the senate for the state of illinois used a photograph of j. wick sands on his social media feed as an anti advertisement so the caption next to the photograph read only you can stop this from becoming a reality but the problem is the picture wasn't quite reality the image of jay wick sounds that he used was taken several years ago and since then the local
authorities have made quite a few improvements to the local area so the locals they're all rather cross country to try to park in america are and then you come to a cover of a walking tour a week and you see the different plane. when it is in america we don't leave room or for the right now again i was iraq everything america are we here is just let's say we can referee it winds come in use an old fart. somewhere and say look your town is going to look like this is bad news. and much noise you should know used police are going to put a good picture on it we got a bit of hostility with the camera down there is it kind of is it is do you guys feel a bit kind of burned by the negative press attention that you guys have are yes because it's a t.v. show that happened way before yeah now when you want to come study would say they come with sticks in people's faces yes just you know we would you know people don't like it they don't like it or the offending advice has now been removed and dr
nextel a spokesperson has issued an apology or huff an apology our intent was never to smear to town and to photo known to us as jay wick sands in essex we never used a name for us it was an example of a town overburdened by poor governance. which is exactly what we in our district are seeking to provide at every level back in two thousand and ten and two thousand and fifteen the government named the area as the most deprived in england in fact i was here to report on it at the time the time was thought up as a holiday resort for city dwellers back in the one nine hundred twenty s. these are all meant to be summer houses but because rents were so cheap people started living here all year round some parts of the town like tarmac roads street lighting or even pavements bloss who shops that were here have been boarded up unemployment is rife in the town in fact sixty two percent of the people that live
here depend on welfare payments. and the town isn't exactly a luxury seaside resort it is still a deprived area and even though local authorities have been keen to stress that they have invested in new roads and new drainage systems it could use more money there is some hesitation when you talk to the locals as well they don't want to talk to the cameras they've been burned before by bad press and they're keen to turn the image of the town around some concede that they could definitely use more investment but it's not up to politicians in america to judge their hometown one interesting suggestion came from the director of a documentary about j. which she said that dr nick stella should come over here and she could show him around the town and so he can see for himself all the improvements that have been made i get the sense that the locals here would have one or two things to say to
him. space agency says damaged sensor was responsible for an aborted rocket launch three weeks ago the two man crew was forced to eject and both of the american and russian onboard were unharmed. agency released a video from an on board camera which shows the rocket failure just two minutes into the flight. hard to imagine what they went through the crew were on their way to the international space station artie's america has more on the aborted space flight. it was an absolutely shocking news back then the first failure of this kind in the
last thirty five years shortly after the incident a special hiring can commission was formed to investigate what went wrong with the sea use launch last month and today we're heard their verdict a sensor that is supposed to detect there a separation of the rocket stages a metal detail that big is to blame for the incident pictures were also released today showing that this detail was visibly deformed and it may sound like a technical failure but the commission concluded that the different mation happened at the time when the rocket was assembled and as we know it is done always manually so as one of the members of the commission told me answering my question this tragedy has a name and a last name is us free from its law enforcement agencies are investigating the matter i would prefer not to discuss that here we are investigating the technical aspect of the mouth function but of course someone is always responsible for the
different mission of the center caused the peroration issues and eventually the rockets stagers bumped into each other and it's crippled the rocket and this is when they merge into system reacted automatically by suppurating the crew capsule this is a shock to be doing is showing what exactly happened. a
russian cosmonaut and an american astronaut the crew members of that flight came back safely to earth in that capsule and they are in good condition and their health was going to fact and as we hear from russia's space agency was also missed their flight is shaping for next spring so approximately next march they will fly to the international space station but even before that there will be another manned flight from baikonur that is shed yule for december third. funerals have been held in gaza for three boys killed in an israeli bombing raid the children between the ages of twelve and fourteen were hit by an airstrike last
sunday in southwest gaza relatives of the victims say the boys were setting nets to catch birds when they were killed but the israeli army says the youngsters have approached of the border security fence and appeared to be placing bombs. troops spotted a squad of three suspects approaching the border under the cover of dong this in a crouched and suspicious manner the three operates in a way that was identical to previous incidents in which terror operatives had placed explosive devices in the same location we got reaction from different sides of this latest incident in gaza. take three young boys who unfortunately were killed but they were clearly approaching an open fire zone that had been established by hamas six months ago families and close associates of those victims the children victims of two media outlets that there were children were doing a routine work over a teen activity simply putting traps for bait for bears so if i was
a parent i wouldn't let my child anywhere near that border fence and the only reason that they were near that hostile border fence is to either cut the fence or plant explosives or kill or kidnap israelis it's the only reason there is no other logical reason from the be there the israelis always declaimed the. targets he really ns well in fact many cv indians have been victims for israeli army actions is throughout the region the i.d.f. the israel defense forces is the only army in the middle east and i would argue one of the only are news if the only army in the world that has multiple layers of confirmation before it issues open fire orders on anybody the latest incident in which a three palace t.v. the children were killed in the. was part of the of this repeated the story by the israeli army terms of the buffer zone israel has been electing the buffaloes on
this comes actually against the well of the people who lead in this these areas especially the farming community. for the past seven months palestinians have been holding weekly demonstrations as a part of the so-called great march of return along the israeli border more than two hundred palestinians have died during the protest with thousands injured here's a reminder of how it has been unfolding. the.
western sports officials and athletes have criticised of the world anti-doping agency's decision to reinstate russia earlier this year they made some of motional pleas to the organization during a meeting in the white house or to select your chef ski as the story not every day you would see tea is shot inside the white house but that was the case with the mergence the summit off several national anti-doping agencies which actually look like a on the ground meeting of rogue revolutionaries in this case the u.s. anti-doping agency the u.k. anti-doping agency a bunch of very famous athletes convene at the white house to discuss why does the recent decision to reinstate the russian anti-doping agency and its rights and to talk about the future of clean sport interestedly enough but the world anti-doping agency claims it was not even invited to that meeting if water president athletes
or others that were supportive of the decision had been invited there would have been a. to bring perspective to the debate to explain why the decision to reinstate rosado was the right one for a clean sport the head of usada travis tygart denounced those accusations said that in fact the vice president of water was there but the overall language he was at that summit can give you a very clear idea of how toxic and political the fight against doping has become why does leadership along with the i.o.c. are increasingly isolated with athletes and public opinion they need to wake up and smell the coffee step out from their ivory tower because athletes are demanding change and change is coming the president of what a circle a greedy was having a symposium all with someone in london and he was asked the question whether there was any rift among the anti-doping watchdogs worldwide and he gave a very indefinite answer to that one government voted against the recommendation
one. and one abstained. the people we hear from most often pretty selective group not of government of the pretty selective group of national anti doping organisations and those you see they are going to. now what does this select group have any leverage on the situation of course you would expect the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency to use trump's method some may say it's blackmail in this situation that's exactly what he did speaking about the budget u.s. contributes the biggest amount of money to what is annual budget more than two million dollars the u.k. about nine hundred thousand dollars and travis tygart hinted that this budget may be pulled so it's about three million dollars of thirty four annual money that water has in its possession now you may ask yourself what's the bone of contention here obviously the world anti-doping agency's decision to reinstate. in its full rights as part of the world anti-doping family on september twentieth the headlines
were vicious and they're still are vicious some media are in total frenzy about that decision but the president of water so craig reedie of the recipient of biggest criticism following that decision spoke about that about his decision in london today. how can you describe. do you find right public pleas to the russian authorities i copied not lecture to all of my committee cian given shot just two conditions we will declare a result of compliant and then we get a letter from russia. and the comedian. commented on a member fifteenth water will gather for a big executive meeting in and they are there by johnny capital of baku and that's where we're expecting the fists will be flying high with sports and politics coming very close down the finish line. r.t. reporting from moscow a former sports lecturer cashmore says the doping claims against russia have become
highly politicized anybody who knows anything about doping in school knows that goes on in a country in the world where there are professional sports well russia is the fall guy here russia has been a convenient scapegoat. all the evils of the doping have been conducted over the past few years americans who have lost out on medals over the years on are complaining about this that and the other with that naming any specific culprits but what they're saying is that wada has being too soft on russia basically awarded is an organization that was seen to be working in their not specifically their interests but in the world of sports interests but now seems to be a part of this intersection of politics and sport in other words what they have tried to retain that position of independence from all this but whether they
like you or not they have been dragged into a political route i've been a big critic of war on r.t. of the past couple of years so let's get that out of the way first of all but i'm now being a little bit more sympathetic than i usually have because it seems to me that what is damned if it does damned if it doesn't a few months ago before it agreed to reinstate resigned of the russian anti doping agency it was really getting it in the neck because people were saying well hang on you know you have this report that you basing all your job or you were decisions and justifications that those decisions are that is the mclaren report and it isn't transparently clear what evidence mclaren has gathered over the past several years so i thought i was amongst the critics who were attacking wide it for its lack of transparency now why there has done what i consider the right thing and readmitted
russia back into world sport. and americans are starting to go a little bit it's too soft particularly soft on russia. us at national security adviser john bolton has announced a new wave of sanctions against cuba nicaragua and venezuela during a speech in miami he described of the three countries left wing governments as tyrannies. the troika of tyranny in this hemisphere cuba venezuela and nicaragua has finally met its match oppressive regimes and ideologies forces of oppression to tallaght tarion ism and domination they worship a false we know their day of reckoning awaits a nicaraguan regime like venezuela and cuba will feel the full weight of america's robust sanctions regime we will no longer appease dictators and despots near our
sure will during that speech john bolton went on to accuse the three south american countries of violating human rights and he described them as a cradle of communism sanctions have become a key foreign policy tool of the trumpet ministration with recent threats against several other world powers. ron for many decades has been the world's central banker of international terrorism russia has been aggressive giant ah. good trading us to take you know money the rebuilding of sound european union of course was set up to take advantage of the united states to attack our piggy bank great and you know what we can't let that happen canada what they've done to our gary samore series is a disgrace. former u.s. diplomat jim johnson believes that the sanctions policy could backfire on washington i think sometimes people in washington especially in congress think of sanctions as something we can do that short of an act of war and i favor the position of former congressman ron paul who believes that sanctions are an act of
war and there are hostile actions the damage in other country hurt their people sometimes result in the deaths of their people and it's morally legally politically wrong we're in the process of sanctioning almost everybody in the world that we don't like include the russians and the chinese and the venezuelans and the iranians and the syrians and so forth this is the way we deal with other countries and we're even threatening to sanction our own allies if they do business with russia for example cooperated with the building of nord stream too or if they buy energy from iran this is not a way to increase americans america's standing in the world and i think it will come it will come back to bite us i think this will end up burning a lot of bridges not only with countries that we have problems with but even with our closest friends. the afghan taliban has picked up five senior members to represent the group in talks with the u.s.
all of them were formerly held at guantanamo bay prison they were exchange for u.s. army sergeant bowe bergdahl and taliban prisoner in two thousand and fourteen they have now been posted it to the taliban's office in doha to negotiate an end to the conflict with the u.s. in afghanistan the spokesperson for the group told us r t that if the u.s. wants negotiations to be successful it has to change its strategy. negotiations are at a low level an issue stage this is because the americans are opposite side are fighting against us if the other side will be honest in the negotiations and really change their strategy from fighting to negotiating then i'm sure we will reach a high level and there might be a good result. but taliban is considered by most countries to be a terrorist movement and after seventeen years of war in afghanistan the militant group is still going strong forty one percent of the country's population live
under the taliban rule according to a new study from the foundation for defense of democracy afghan journalist ali latif he believes that all sides need to make concessions. the u.s. will you know they'll have to accept them because the truth is if you're talking about who has been negotiating you know all of these figures have been controversial figures they've had to have had u.s. support in being there and being allowed into law and i think donald trump is very eager to figure out some way out of the on quagmire so you know if they had any kind of a protest they would have expressed that by now as much as the taliban is could be correct in their statement in saying that if the u.s. wants to i want to get real about negotiations they have to end the war the fighting but at the same time the taliban has to do the same thing we saw in the first ever cease fire three day cease fire we saw that the taliban were able to lay
down their arms were able to come into the cities were embraced by the people and i remember after a happened a friend of mine who works in the office of the chief executive he said you know what this proves is that the afghan war could end in fifteen minutes if both sides agreed to it. u.s. secretary of state has voiced concerns over turkey's increasingly close relationship with russia speaking on a radio show mike pompei a cast doubt over whether turkey can continue as a member of nato almost sixty seven years in the alliance. but does there come a moment where turkey's future isn't a donation as an ally comes into question. it would be unfortunate for nato it be unfortunately united states and i think even more unfortunate for the people of turkey if if that were to become the case we are hopeful that turkey and president will come to understand the u.s.
is a better partner in iran and the direction that the president want to go is to support deeper relationships with the united states and with europe and with nato. turkey's relationship with the u.s. and the rest of nato has been strained by a series of disputes being cleared us support for kurdish forces in syria who are considered by turkey to be terrorists meanwhile turkey's recent efforts to coordinate with iran and russia in syria have angered washington the u.s. still refuses to hand over dissident cleric to lug google and who turkey blames for an attempted coup in two thousand and sixteen and nato has been urging turkey to scrap the purchase of a russian anti-missile system. sounder bruno senior analyst absalom barney letter leaves us foreign policy is putting a strain on nato i don't think was supposed. to really believe his
own words there he knows more better than anyone and right now that turkey could have plenty of incentive to lead nato the one who would lose the most unlike what mr phone fails that is not the people of turkey rather it is the united states they would be. most fundamental country right now the united states is just putting too much pressure on its allies to act in ways that are not in an hour like in sri. lanka which brought about now. only interest. giving all its allies not just turkey very good reasons to leave rather than to stay. double trumps a recent decision to pull out of
a nuclear missile treaty with russia has sparked concern in europe last month of the us scrap to intermediate a range nuclear forces treaty with russia which had been in force for more than thirty years and requires both countries to eliminate their stockpiles of mid range ground based nuclear missiles leaders across the european union condemned the move but political analyst martin mccauley believes europe has very little leverage over washington when it comes to defense russia really would like to see the united states out of europe and european security only looked after by european powers and russia but the europeans are too weak for that so therefore they will look to the united states to look to nato and hope that some new agreement can come into place now the opportunity to rest there with russia if the americans are unwilling to enter into a new eye if agreement or knew that russia can come and negotiate with the
europeans to find out if there is they can come to some agreement some nuclear agreement to make sure that it's new you can the war in europe. the americans want the european powers to be torah nato to spend two percent or more g.d.p. on defense and they're not willing to do that you know they will to do that because of their weak economic position so therefore it's unlikely that the european countries will increase the defense spending which will cause noise the americans and they will keep insisting that europe should spend more in defense televised america will not be responsible will not say that they will spend north but of money just to defend western europe and eastern europe. is c.n.n. anchor has stirred controversy by claiming that the biggest terror threat in the u.s. comes from white men. you have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men most of them radicalized to the right.
don lemon's comments come after three recent hate crimes involving white suspects last saturday eleven jewish worshipers were massacred at a synagogue in pittsburgh in the same week two black people were killed in a shooting at a supermarket in kentucky and fifteen mail bombs were sent to high profile opponents of the u.s. president we've heard contrasting views from inside the u.s. from journalist who leo rivera and political activist anthony rogers right. i think that mr levin was actually stating facts there are twice as many terrorist incidents from white right wing terrorists than those people who submit to al islam what they're saying right now saying that the majority of the country are terrorists pretty sure that if white men were the real problem in america we'd have a higher incident a higher rate of incidents with these types of terror attacks radicalized white
people who are sending pipe bombs to people of the opposing party who just killed eleven jewish people who just killed two black people in kentucky because they couldn't get into a black church look at the result things deaths and look at the perpetrators d.n.a. and is doing everything they can to try to cast a negative light against anything trump in obviously the majority of the voting bloc in america is working class white men believes incidents that are being painted are happy and are being painted as donald trump's fault when it's really not true people like don lemon are going to continue to perpetuate these false narratives in the hopes that maybe it can just prop people from what's actually going on in america which is a great thing right now economically number of people across all demographics including white latino and blacks in particular where black unemployment is a historic low bonds that were just sent did not.
