including an oil embargo. runs on english front and center in the u.s. midterm election campaign after mistakenly being used to illustrate to disturb him future in the states pays a visit i don't believe the reason why we couldn't even remember. what he want to come about he would say because it was the people's faces it's just . and sweet talk to a survivor ever wonders genocide just human rights groups call for the real thing of an investigation into the french army speyer to respond to the base has a very hills massacre. welcome to the week coming on our teens national a roundup of the top stories that shape the week. thousands of people have rallied
in iran's capital against the u.s. decision to reinstate sanctions the protest also marks thirty nine years since the storming of the u.s. embassy in tehran. was. demonstrators set fire to american and israeli flags the takeover of the u.s. embassy in one nine hundred seventy nine led to a hostage crisis lasting more than a year and caused a rift in relations that continues to this day rallies honoring the event held every year in sauron but eyewitnesses say this was the largest in recent memory. when announcing the sanctions against iran for more term posted this tweet inspired by the tagline from game of thrones the restrictions take effect on the morning of november the fifth in the u.s. they follow washington's withdrawal from the twenty fifteen nuclear deal the
measures target oil banking and shipping the u.s. secretary of state says the main target is the rainy and governments. or areas of iran for economy it is aimed at depriving the regime of the revenues that it uses to spread death and destruction around the world. people on the street september around say it's ordinary civilians who end up bearing the brunt of the sanctions touting the sanctions imposed by the us which they say will talk about government will definitely affect people's lives putting much pressure on us even though the sanctions haven't manifested themselves in the market yet they are already on people's minds and causing some and not. much turmoil you are going on with sanctions we have experienced similar restrictions in the past and we've managed to get by somehow less so we now have more experience than we did back then moreover we now have the international community on our side which wasn't the case in the past given both these factors i think will be ok in the end. those sanctions will
have no impact on either people's lives or on the government as usual these are just empty slogans look i'm going to get sanctions i you know actual sanctions this means that the international community will not support them based on that i don't think america will be able to achieve its goals. when they harm the a nation they have always been there for the past four decades and they've been arming the uranium nation all along they're in position that's why many are there for war states that are on the sanctions like russia like any of theirs they are all against this move especially because this new round of sanctions by washington it doesn't have the u.n. support it doesn't have the support of even the united states close allies like the europeans that have stated their opposition in defiance china turkey or russia and many others have defied the u.s. sanctions against iran and many are worried in washington that this could make this
sharp tool or weapon blunt and make you know take it off the menu even for future u.s. administrations if it goes ineffective. despite pressure from the u.s. the opinion has confirmed its commitment to the iran nuclear deal brussels will say about to protect you companies that do business with iran but despite all the tough talk washington may be more flexible than its letting on. we ask all nations to isolate iran's regime. as long as it's aggression continues we do not intend to allow our sanctions to be invaded by europe or any body else. we will work to maintain the framework of the twenty fifteen deal in spite of the american decision by ensuring that our companies can stay in iran looking at the
latest decision so for the cha cha i want to see that the fool with friends like that who needs that is. going to want to be bustling stumbled upon a blind it's what americans do want us europeans to say economic interests one time economic relations with iran. we've never threatened anyone but we do not tolerate threats from anyone. we want to use want to achieve maximum pressure build we don't want to harm friends and allies he. wants. aiming for zero zero zero zero exports.
are now giving to countries themselves for you in for that indicates that they have on just the mikes enough pressure on the wrong. now they are changing that maximum pressure to enough. pressure. that the strategy will succeed or not that's also on the question because they can not. be needed they think against iran because now there is a difference in american cabinet minister. on the disconnect think iran from the international c. system and they oppose the science in messaging that can be. hard against iran they still make believe that's the area of difference inside the united states between donald trump that is officials in the cabinet. and the english seaside village has been getting some unexpected attention in the
u.s. mid-term election campaign j weeks stance is one of the u.k.'s least prosperous areas and images of mr lapid ated streets have appeared on the republican party poster boy k 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 miracles they're all rather cross
country to try to pocket america are and then you come to a cover of i'm talking try and use a different plane. when it is in america we don't leave room or for the right not get i was iraq everything america we here is just let's say we can referee it winds come in use an old fire of africa somewhere and say look your town is going to look like this is the bad news sells good news it doesn't. match nobody should be used 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 had yes because it's a really show that happened way before yeah now when you want to come study with so you become a sticks in people's faces it's 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 cough an apology our intent was never
to smear to town and to photo not known to us as j. 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 lost to shops that were here have been boarded up unemployment is rife in the town in fact sixty two percent of the people that live head to pend on welfare payments.
live 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. french human rights groups are calling for an investigation into the nine hundred ninety four rwandan genocide to be reopened off the release of a video which appears to show a senior french military officer being informed. about a massacre taking place in an area known as the base has a real health yes the army failed to intervene before you know it would be only too confessional now human rights activists are demanding answers one leader of the organization survey is a plaintiff in the case she says it was too premature to close the case while other lawyers are accusing france were in direct complicity in the genocide lines of inquiry were not sufficiently followed up to allow investigators to determine france's military and political responsibility french military authorities were aware that from the afternoon of twenty seventh of june on words civilians were
being killed the survivors open the case thirteen years ago although back in july it was scrapped due to lack of evidence and lack of convictions but survivors of the massacre claim they asked the french military for help on june twenty seventh one thousand nine hundred ninety four but the military only came three days later already after hundreds of people were killed in the massacre and the allegation now is that the french government actually knew what was going on and specifically decided not to intervene in the genocide was committed mainly by the hutu government and its backers against the ethnic minority tutsi tribe allegations of the french government support for the hutus who carried out most of the slaughter in the genocide have been rough on the french government's relations with the rwandan government for years but the french although they admit that they have made mistakes they say they have no complicity in the genocide that took place there.
we asked one survivor of the massacre she was surprised by the newly found video. nor up to do almost no video doesn't surprise me i was very happy that media published the truth that we survivors have known this for a long time it's important that the french people knew what happened back in one thousand nine hundred four when the military was there so gentle reply only knows. promise to declassify the archives they didn't work out she everything he published was already known the only thing i have to add is that the french people have
swallowed the truth. on the eve of the u.s. midterm elections some politicians have been accused of playing on people's fears but to scale it more pain explains where voters fear most might surprise you. efforts to influence the twenty to midterm elections the big news and divisive stories and posts caravan of impoverished migrants white nationalists prepared to take to the streets trump administration plan couldn't race the definition of transgender but according to a new poll conducted by chapman university in california americans actual fears don't really line up when given a list of one hundred things to be afraid of including nuclear war zombies and ghosts and other terrors americans listed their primary phobia for the fourth consecutive year as being corrupt politicians. and perhaps this fear isn't exactly baseless we do have a president whose tax returns are still under wraps and he seems to be pretty
blatantly doing favors for his next of kin i've heard evolved i've heard how good would it be. the fifo that know there's nothing to do with that but does that but i want to tell you the people that know know that he wagner would be done but. then be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right and trump got a lactaid by tearing into his opponent hillary clinton he called her crooked hillary because her reputation for shady deals has been around for years the f.b.i. even looked into her clinton foundation the former secretary of state never shied away from taking big sums from financial heavyweights to do have to be paid six hundred seventy five thousand dollars well i don't know that's what they offered. accusations of corruption are abundant in american politics even though they rarely make the legal field in the united states there's all kinds of politicians being accused of insider trading lavish gifts as they say welcome to american politics
but it seems that the mainstream media is working overtime to direct our phobias elsewhere there's no living with the russian federation. to undermine american democracy while you know what we have to work on immigration i have a big there. district a lot of agriculture a lot of undocumented workers but these things aren't even in the top ten because we have so many of them. things that relate to your life or the future of your kids and things like that not trumped up things like you know terrorism is going to get to or the bridges are going to fall down or something it's real life things that people are worried about a part of it is the economic ones including the corruption of politicians i was interested in the corrupt politician thing being at the top because for a long time people haven't recognized how corrupt their politicians are they think it's thinking in gradually that the whole system really stinks american politicians have learned that playing on people's fears is
a big seller but it seems that what scares the americans the most is the very scare mongers trying to manipulate their fears kaleb mop and r.t. new york. china's president has raised the specter of a potential conflict after instructing the country's military to be ready for war but how much of this is merely posturing more outcaste after take a closer look so here's the thing the chinese government almost never says anything you wouldn't expect that's their thing they gimmick they're incredibly careful reserved at least with their tongues so when the chinese president orders his military to prepare for war serious indeed. the miter to concentrate on that bouncing red in these full war the chinese preparing for war out loud how over how did we get to this well trump for one aside from
the chinese at every opportunity is tariffs is sanctions his trade war he's also being very heavy handed congress has just approved a second deal. with taiwan in eighteen months before your own kind of untruthful the sales of weapons by the united states to taiwan damages china's sovereignty and security interest in beijing sees china and taiwan as two parts of a whole two chinese entities same culture and this is the same languages with two separate governments communist capitalist the end goal is to reunite into one state there are differences of course currency preventing that and about one hundred kilometers of c. that separate the two and trump always a fan of sticking it to the chinese he's been saluting his warships right between
the two chinas i say. we have expressed our concerns to the us signed the taiwan issue concerns china sovereignty and territorial integrity and is the most important and sensitive issue in china us relations well for starters how about you express your concerns about these important and sensitive issues to someone who cares a little more because that in trump we worry about. i don't worry about things. let's be great never worrying about anything unfortunately others are there are those in china who believe that america wants taiwan to declare independence and the chinese are preparing for that eventuality militarily.
as your own you know we are resolute to defeat any scheme or act of taiwan independence in any form. thing is the taiwanese don't really see a point to defending themselves. taiwan which recently switched from conscription to a volunteer army is having huge trouble recruiting even reserve troops dodging the judy after all that's the point of a win. the government needs to think whether it's necessary to bring conscription back if they think national security matters but taiwan is a minor player in these confrontation if war does break out it likely be the people's republic of china slugging it out with the united states rather than taiwan and that is a war that trump really really ought to be worried about the world is
really at a cross ruled the united states has been pushing china around china and imposing unilateral tyrus on the chinese exports china does not want to have a trade war with the united states in terms of those now want to have the conflict with the united states but if the united states really wants to impose these things all do china i think the chinese people will be fully mobilized behind the chinese government and the chinese military. after almost two decades at the forefront of german politics anglo-american announced on monday she was stepping down as leader of the christian democratic union party and she ruled out running for a fifth chancellor merkel's decision followed her party's disappointing performance in regional elections. the figures that came in overnight from her selection a wholly disappointing and bitter towards what he does politically it can no longer
be business as usual process after this result has after the result and varia after the conflicts between the c.d.u. c.s.u. in the summer and after all the difficulties in forming a government coalition as the previous attempts to form one between the c.d.u. c.s.u. f.t.p. and the green party fell through. angela merkel began her political career after the fall of the barren war joining the c.d.u. in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine ten years later she became the party sect . terry general and then its leader in two thousand and five mikel made history by becoming chairman his first female chancellor since then she's been reelected to feather three times but to the last few years have popularity has taken the heads.
of the old days hoofy misery who oppression political oppression we have a responsibility to help the based on the geneva convention for refugees based on our side in policy and article one of our constitutional whether we want to. measure it along political or russian ality this move by going to merkel is not surprising at all because her party was losing. confidence among the electorate and the reason and so to speak the burden of this party was
a glimmer clear herself so it was quite rational for her to leave office as party chairman but they were the less whenever something important happens you usually are surprised by it happening right now and this is why there was rain this uprising that angular merkel is so quickly stronger consequences out of the disaster still a electoral defeats during the last eight elections and if they aren't and in history. i can read dating back to the second world war has been recovered from a trench in southern russia and against all odds one frame from the roll of film inside how survived. but that's the troops couldn't approach the strange they killed him with were next
