yes. you look. pretty champions return to the houses of parliament for the second time this week to decide the future of bragg's if they're expected to vote this hour on whether to rule out or not a deal breaker. the cia is behind a mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in spain according to local media. and a new documentary reveals supporters of the terrorist group islamic state of infiltrated a greek refugee camp where they ruled with an iron fist will be speaking to the film's producer.
3:01 pm
very good evening to you this is our internet. first this hour let's take you live to westminster where british m.p.'s have been debating this evening a no deal brags that they're expected to vote on whether or not to rule out a no deal scenario this hour this will be the second to important vote on briggs this week with parliament on tuesday with. reason opposed divorce deal and it looks in deed as though we're seeing the end pays off on their way out now to actually cast their votes let's go to london now speak to a correspondent on the syria church following this for is nasty it's been quite a week for british politics even the wording of this proposal today is far from being straightforward it's also complicated what can you tell us. well indeed
3:02 pm
indeed neal it's very complicated it's not just this week or the last couple of weeks it's really been the last few months as the tries to plow through towards bragg's it and figure out exactly what she is going to end up taking as the clock is increasingly ticking and in fact the estimate is a very crucial evening again in westminster as the house of commons get together gets together to vote on a very important issue when it comes to how to move forward this is one of three votes taking place this week and in fact tonight they are going to be deciding whether or not the u.k. can leave the european union with out a deal however it has to be explained that as m.p.'s decide on this issue this still doesn't mean they will necessarily. leave with a deal if they decide against this because if they still haven't figured out what they're doing within the next sixteen days when the bracks of deadline looms it
3:03 pm
will still have to roll out of the european union without a deal come march twenty ninth but still this is an attempt to try to move any kind of decision making forward and this particular vote tonight of course is taking place while the european union has already made it clear that according to them the u.k. could essentially leave by accident again if there's nothing else agreed on they will have to leave without any kind of deal and it's been said that the chances are now higher for that happening than ever that's in terms of some reaction from brussels there for you remember that last night there was another crucial vote taking place where. a deal was rejected for a second time around. two hundred forty two votes for the deal with m.p.'s backing her but as many as three hundred ninety want to get instant she was defeated by one hundred forty nine votes that is a very big margin. indicating how huge the lack of support
3:04 pm
for her handling of this process has been it hasn't been as big if you remember in january. she had two hundred thirty vote defeat which was the first time m.p.'s went ahead and said whether or not they support her deal now tomorrow night on the other hand following whatever they decide tonight or no deal is ok or they have to find a deal will be a decision on whether or not to possibly extend the deadline for leaving the european union which would mean pushing back article fifty which in itself is extremely complicated question too because this would really stem very much from what the european union will have to say on this because they seem to have shown a lot of frustration by now saying that the deal they had agreed with theresa may was the best one possible. that really really go shooting anything is out of the
3:05 pm
question any more so what exactly this extension would be used for is the big question there so all of these decisions to be made again important one later on tonight we should be finding out what they decide with hopefully the next twenty minutes or so and just two weeks to go before so who knows how any of this is going to play out yeah absolutely no clear as to what's going on but we're watching the house of commons over a lot of very carefully and we'll bring that results to everybody watching as soon as we get it many things. onto the news for now the cia was behind last month's attack on the north korean embassy in madrid that's according to spanish media with the investigation taking an unexpected twist local journalist martin roberts explains. in a remarkable report to tary spain's newspaper of record police suggested that the u.s. central intelligence agency may have been behind a recent attack on the north korean embassy here in madrid which you can see.
3:06 pm
behind me now two things about this attack a particularly significant the first one is the timing because the attack happened on the twenty second of february or just days before the recent nuclear summit between the united states and north korea in hanoi which as we all know ended in conclusively the second significant factor here is that the korean delegation to hanoi was headed by none other than kim here choi who is the currently a creditor accredited ambassador here now el peise say that police investigators and also investigators from the security services have managed to identify at least two of the ten presumed assailants and say that they have connections to the cia they are also but the cia have denied responsibility but they are that those denials were quote not very convincing the police are investigating. this attack they say. these ten assailants. forcibly entered the embassy but they
3:07 pm
tied up gagged beat and interrogated staff before one of them managed to escape from a second floor window and cry for help a neighbor called the police and that's a piece of frustrated the attack however they say once managed to get away in embassy cas taking with them important documents and computer material now if these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court. but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed and that had to have devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries and not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically geishas. we've asked the north korean embassy and the spanish interior ministry for reaction to the news with the latter already replying that it will not comment on an ongoing investigation. terrorist group islamic state
3:08 pm
has penetrated a refugee camp being greece where is persecuting religious minorities that is the finding of a soon to be released documentary. it's a process for sale any that's designed for about. but realistically. around ten hours. the conditions of the camp were really bad the rest of the photos of videos of riots happening all the time especially one through just being delivered to the new version of events nothing. like you thought rather know your. god i said i did that. they are here they come away like europe they can steal hundred bucks every. model.
3:09 pm
on the market they are in the normal life that you have been there in the. long run it's all done with that level of i cannot go on. top of that many times to put i cannot trust to protect ourselves to go. the film in question will be released in may we've spoken to its moreas because there were reports of really quite disastrous things happening there but we never ever expected to find out what we really found out this place was was completely sort of uncontrollable there were there were tense scattered up all through the mountain sides there was no security there there was almost no control whatsoever and one of the residents actually told us that they were terrified of being
3:10 pm
attacked one man told us on camera that the reason he fled the middle east was to escape from radical islam when they arrived in europe within days they were experiencing the same thing which was which was really really shocking is because an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness when you're there you know as a filmmaker and. director george and laura and i have spent so much time in different different environments different conditions but this was definitely one of the most difficult and also scary this is you know interpol only recently published published a report saying that there's now a new way of terror threat coming to europe from returning to hardy's the residents told us that the reason isis is operating on the town now because of being defeated in their own countries in the east and in other coming here and it all fits into the narrative of interpol and to everybody else so it's. it's quite depressing overall but it was worth it to bring this truth. on either the police or the government responded to a request by the documentary makers on the situation in the camp we've also sent
3:11 pm
our own requests to police as well. french president emmanuel micron's a vision of a reformed european union which you made last week has been met with derision by some of the blocs key players the austrian chancellor and the head of germany's biggest party angela merkel successor the christian democrats are among those rejecting his ideas peter all of a look at what they've taken exception to. if french president to money will mccrone was hoping their fellow e.u. leaders would support his new vision for the future of europe his european renay sorts. as he called it well he may be a little disappointed austrian chancellor could says the latest to criticize micron's plan saying it's utopian and comes with too many rules as it to me i believe that many of the suggestions are utopian. plead for europe with as few rules as possible be incubating so what is mccrum put forward that could doesn't
3:12 pm
like well he's proposed creating a whole load of new e.u. agencies including one that would police campaign financing in elections in member states he also wants to see more and more centralized powers for a shingle on board a force and is even a plan there for an e.u. minimum wage mark or once in an agency for democracy that's ridiculous i mean we have democracy you should reform the e.u. but he doesn't really want to reform the year because a sickly has a vested plymouths there and the e.u. is missing true parliament and the who is missing. french nuclear power and the french seed in the in the security council so for the you to reform we have to talk about everything it's not just the austrian chancellor that is unhappy about this though here in germany the woman whitely tipped to take over from angela merkel as chancellor also isn't very king european central isn't european status in the community rising debt the european eyes ation of social systems and the minimum
3:13 pm
wage would be the wrong approach c.d.u. leader and a good outcome kalam did agree with president macro when it came to security but on not a lot else and members of a christian democratic union party are also critical of the plan i'm quite amazed that on a good compact calendar of the new city you lead a skeptical because normally german leaders always follow the french leaders of germany thought that would be part of the german reason of state but apparently it's not anymore than you can see in this the turmoil and the the changes. europe the pressure by the people and democratic change her has probably brought the party leader to pose a position herself slightly more skeptical of new french plans and france is feeling and this e.u. in some ways is feeling the timing of the release of my crohn's plan hasn't helped the french president either it's come out just before european parliamentary elections in which it's expected euro skeptic parties will make pretty decent gains
3:14 pm
and while he hasn't got the support of key allies within the european union the dream of a new european renascence may well remain just a dream peter all of r.t. berlin. c.n.n. chief jeff zucker has slammed fox news as a propaganda outlet he also expressed support for the us democratic party's decision to exclude fox from most of the twenty twenty primary debates. they chose to work at fox and they don't get to hide behind the fact that they're excellent journalists so anchors the fact is they work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country the idea is that of course whoever is in power and whoever i guess whatever platform is more sympathetic that will be state run or what i about referred to as perhaps state sympathetic folks are saying and actually been at each other's throats for quite some time now here's
3:15 pm
a look back at their spat. more take news from c.n.n. this time it is spewing from the lips of the clinton news network president his name is jeff zucker it is really state run t.v. it is a pure propaganda machine sucker is a partisan democrat you cannot understand the problem here without understanding. given the world a very distorted perverted view of our country every single day we get the echo chamber effect starting to sell the president's message it's a lot our news anchors don't consult donald trump when something becomes a pattern you don't tell the truth on a daily basis that's a problem at least i'm not responsible for a quarter of a billion dollar lawsuit by smearing a minor they want to press the da there isn't trumped obsessive coverage it's impossible to watch with this is not personal this is just the truth.
3:16 pm
and rebuild a list of all the things that you said and do it again and show that you mean it all that's fair and balanced these are the facts as journalists we have to give you the facts we should put c.n.n. six feet you see right there under brown scary. we were object seen as world view completely. folkestone can do no room. right and i don't think either one of those is right. propaganda means something that somebody else is saying that you don't agree with their ways symbiont and the object of your truth if they don't like it calls you propaganda it is impossible for a human being to look at any particular story and not have any as you would say by if you don't know the history of something if you don't know if you have no basis
3:17 pm
and with that basis. comes a particular slant perspective there was no such thing as objectivity because objectivity means everybody has to agree on it then the person who dorio is or why they got objective and the person who does not particularly like the flavor or the subject of the story didn't say that only are you not objective but is it propaganda which brings us right back to the beginning. protests erupted overnight in the venezuelan capital caracas where supporters of the country's opposition leader clashed with police. thank you. and the rest began after people gathered in a western district of the city as this video shows now stones were thrown of the police people raised on to the streets by the country's self-proclaimed president one goh i don't. think it was going to be i know it sounds harsh in venezuela that is bleeding today that is suffering to say that we are doing well i know that
3:18 pm
sounds tough but it is so obvious that we aren't saying it because of the country situation because we know the situation in the country is critical we know it is critical and have condemned it and we have a proposal to improve it when we say that it is because we are united when we say it it is because we're going all out to achieve venezuela's freedom we will not tremble when we make those decisions. venezuela's president nicolas maduro says the majority of the country is car with electrical power have them being restored following massive nationwide outages he alleges u.s. hackers were behind the blackouts and his appeal for help defending against future interference belief he can't get full she would have to i want you to know that i have appointed a presidential special investigations commission to look into the cyber attack and i've asked for the participation of international specialists i will ask for the support of the united nations and in addition i will also ask for the already active support of russia china iran and cuba countries with
3:19 pm
a lot of experience defend against. britax we really have the support of these countries if the u.s. government is concerned about the humanitarian situation inside are good as well and then they should begin the process of lifting sanctions twenty million dollars in aid does not in any way reflect the value of what's been lost for the business world and government every day the very notion that the chopper ministration would be concerned about the humanity of people in venezuela is laughable there has been an attempt by the administration to manufacture a crisis a crisis they did not exist in this country there was an election that people voted and i mistook him a door was. due to assume his of truth of the of the constitution but then we have this diversion by the national assembly that is in contempt and now we have this manufactured crisis at this point all of the
3:20 pm
respectability and legitimacy stance with the. government the government recognized by the vast majority of the states on this planet. breaking news for you this hour we can go back to our top story said to london where the u.k. polman tires just voted to rule out a no deal breaker what a tight margin it was though just four votes this proposal was approved by and it means that on thursday the m.p.'s will have to go back to westminster do it all again and they'll vote this this time coming up on whether to extend article fifty and seek further negotiation with the e.u. today's vote came after prime minister theresa may have proposed another break that deal which was defeated by a margin of a hundred forty nine votes on tuesday let's get more from our correspondents in the hague and c.h.f. in london for us and this is perhaps a lot closer than many people expected nastia but what is significant result.
3:21 pm
definitely neal i mean this number is quite amazing a margin of just four votes shows us exactly how divided the house of commons is on how to move forward with bracks it indeed a lot of analysts were suggesting that the idea of a new deal breck's it would in fact be rejected but four votes is really really a slim slim margin which you know all the asli of four people have changed their minds the u.k. would essentially be saying ok let's go ahead and do this without any kind of agreement with the european union very significant result of there and indeed three hundred twelve have rejected the idea of the u.k. leaving the european union without a deal and three hundred eight supported of the possibility now to be clear. this comes after on tuesday night teresa means deal was rejected for
3:22 pm
a second time by the house of commons with two hundred forty two people supporting her deal and three hundred ninety one rejecting it for a second time in a row by a very significant margin in that case of one hundred forty nine votes and what we're expecting to happen tomorrow now is a vote on the possibility of extending the deadline of grex it actually coming to fruition on march twenty ninth the deadline that theresa may had said on and on and on and on again that she would be against extending by any means yet here we are tomorrow that's another possibility being discussed there the question is would the european union agree to any kind of extension given they have said the deal that they had agreed with me was the best one possible that negotiating time is over earlier today the chief negotiator michel barnier had indicated that.
3:23 pm
still the chances of the u.k. leaving without a deal are higher than ever because keep in mind that despite now the house of commons rejecting the possibility of leaving the european union without an agreement doesn't mean it won't happen because if there is no agreement found in the next just two weeks before the deadline unless an extension takes place he will still have to leave without a deal by war very complicated stuff very tricky still a lot to be decided in the days to come and deed just like i said sixty days right now to go before the bricks. and if anyone is wondering what he's going to extremely complicated just to reiterate what are you saying that they voted against the no deal briggs but it could still happen as bizarre as you get politics is many thanks mr churkin. he.
3:24 pm
breaks it count down. the death of freedom that's our critic said announcing a french bill cracking down on the elevator protest movement both houses of the french bollywood overwhelmingly backed the law to give police more powers against the protesters including banning them from rallies now moves to the constitutional council for approval despite many slum in the proposal is a violation of basic human rights to france but the free yellow vests at break off break from the original movements and they told us that president micron is trying to cover all bases with this main. auspices frankly this is a political masquerade emanuel macro neglects opinion as he tries to do different things at the same time on the one hand he's on the move past evolves for the role his fellow m.p.'s senators all voted for this law but at the same time he tries to favor the left wing of his electorate by appealing to the constitutional council that frankly this is a political masquerade as first of the criminal code those who do not have an

identity card with a skull i have rarely seen and global is taken literally a current or past bird with them this is the first stage of preventive action if they can be carried out of several police units or the boy during demonstrations the second thing is to actively encourage speakers including myself to coordinate their speeches from the very beginning it should be clearly understood that the government initially hears to a strategy to discredit a social movement that matters of expressing dissatisfaction must change we cannot continue to ask the yellow vast and french people to demonstrate on the street because this point was that. the european commission has branded china a systematic rival and a new document put forward to e.u. member states the document adds ten points to achieve better economic balance with beijing to address what it calls the distortive effect of china's state owned companies and also which is all member states to form a unified position on china the proposal will be put to the leaders at the meeting

3:29 pm
by the way what is it that's like here. whether you're for or against the venezuelan government for or against socialism it is obvious the mainstream media are committing a lot of journalistic malpractise once again mainstream media echo the policy preferences of those in power if it comes to still another military intervention will the media be held responsible. i'm after a time she were going underground as britain's about the u.k. minority government proclaims to parliament its view of the impact of years of mass will stare as he has brussels stands its ground of a brics that's coming up on the show centennial l.s.e. professor saskia sand on vampire finance sucking the life blood out of the economy
