police deal with an instance of the german police or u.k. we actually share this information. you know regardless of whether the u.k. remains in the or not with the latest. debate going on but you know you're opposed played a very important role in this that is the policing agencies intelligence based in scene one two and hans policing throughout throughout the continent but regardless of whether we're in or out or the states we actually do talk to each other and i think that's the benefit. of french prime minister says yellow vest protests will be banned in areas that have suffered the most damage as a result of the demonstrations if they contain a radical element or turn violent. was it tells you only when you first assure we will burn yet invest in stray sions in the neighborhoods to be most effective as soon as we become aware of the presence of extremist elements in their intentions or vandalize. i'm thinking obviously of the seans elisa in paris plus pavan on the

of friday's terror attack on two mosques in christchurch new zealand looking at ways of preventing similar atrocities in future prime ministers promising to change the country's gun laws and sharply criticized social media platforms which she says need to do far more to tackle extremist content you know more details from correspondent. questions are being raised as to what exactly happened in the lead up on the aftermath of this terrible act of barbarity among some most questions social media the role it played this act of terror the shooting of fifty people was actually live streamed on facebook for around fifteen minutes before it was taken specifically at the request of police in new zealand it was then a shared subsequently all other social media platforms as well as the police in new zealand have reminded their twitter followers certainly that distributing objects at all publications quoting here could mean a prison sentence if deemed injurious to public good one arrest already confirmed
4:11 pm
in new zealand over the sharing of these images very much and present a legal framework here the prime minister of new zealand has also confirmed the sheer challenge they face dealing with this and how exactly they could stand this out in the future i would call on our social media platforms of all variety to demonstrate the kind of responsibility that both lead to these have been and that includes stars who perpetuate their messages in the aftermath there's a lot of work that needs to be down done this attack was only live stream for a full fifteen minutes it was also. multiple times a kind to a car and people were saying they had no problem finding about leads to a lot of questions as you were saying with the social media platforms how they responded to criticism the big three giants facebook twitter and you tube do face questions over whether they really did handle that sort of area that situation with these pictures being channeled across the whole world in the first twenty four hour we removed one point five million views of the attack globally of which over one
4:12 pm
point two million were blocked and upload we continue to work around the clock to remove violating content using a combination of technology and people. we are working vigilantly to remove any violent footage of course i don't think anybody is under the illusion is here that simply removing. these streams any quicker would have of course saved the lives of these innocent people but there are questions raised as to in an age where these sorts of horrific videos can be streamed online is the threat being taken seriously enough are these preventative methods work and the moderators the algorithm of that truck how exactly this can be stopped from happening again. darby in greece between these so-called internal rivals pathan i costs and libby our cost was marred by clashes between fans and police on sunday both in and outside the stadium it out and.
4:13 pm
the game was interrupted just six minutes in when dozens of lost pathan i called found attempted to evade the pitch and then attacked the visiting team substitute bench referee eventually abandon the fixture in the second half as police used tear gas to disperse angry supporters the match official said the stadium was unsafe as toxic gas forced fans to move closer to the pitch no serious injuries sore breasts have been reported so far. west of it is a celebration have been taking place across the crimean peninsula as the thirty thousand locals mark five years since its reunification with russia our correspondent in the south. well the celebrations have gone into the night really and there was something of a nature's gift the weather was absolutely beautiful
4:14 pm
a warm sunny day nothing really stopping people from coming out here and marking the days out in the open in the streets in this square and really that's what they did aus and of people have turned up and really five years is a bit of a long time so i talked we talked to some of the crimean ends and ask them how their lives changed in this half a decade yet that in strip it seeing as a resident of the city i'll say that it happened for the better. and over the past five years trusted changes have occurred in everything even in the general impression of the peninsula. problems have always existed so who owns it all depends on the people when we agreed to reunite with russia things went calmly people enjoyed life and then there's those against it i have friends here who are unhappy about it but very few over time they'll be satisfied because they saw the chaos before. when you could do whatever you wanted now we have the rule of law now patriotic songs on the stage behind me were briefly interrupted by the address of
4:15 pm
the russian president vladimir putin has visited the region and he spoke about the imprudence of the decision he had made five years ago effectively giving the peninsula a chance to become part of russia yet again i was really speaking of the problems faced by the region hopefully at least one of them has been fixed once and for all and that is electoral lexical supply see crimea as being very dependent on ukraine on its well previous owners so to speak we've had very well we've had very basic infrastructure very basic old infrastructure so we drew most of its electricity most of its electrical supply from ukraine and often key of would be either. incapable of or simply ignored willing to provide enough energy so people's homes would go dark repeatedly the whole of the peninsula would go dark today vladimir putin launched to power plants into the full capacity in fact there is so powerful
4:16 pm
that not only crimea is self-sufficient now but also it could export some of that power to other regions and so really the celebrations are own going and so this is this is a big day for crimea and for russia and for all the people who flocked to the streets to celebrate. the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's backing of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen it follows a senate vote last week to withdraw support while my compost says its continuation is the way to ensure just peace and to alleviate suffering in the water country the senators who voted aye say they want to end the bombing in yemen and support human rights. but we really do think about who schumann writes. if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran the way to alleviate
4:17 pm
the many people's suffering isn't to prolong the conflict by handicapping our partners in the fight but by giving the saudi led coalition the support needed to defeat arabian back rebels that ensured just peace sometimes arms deals with saudi arabia expected to total around three hundred fifty billion dollars over a decade and apart from supplies and military equipment washington also provides riyadh with the just mix and intelligence correspondent what i guess they have looks deeper into the u.s. secretary of state to comment. the united states makes no secret of what it stands for freedom justice democracy and saudi arabia the white house stands firm on that even if the senate is having second thoughts voting to end u.s. support for riyadh's endless war in yemen saudi arabia's bloody war in yemen world's worst humanitarian disaster the horrific wall in yemen saudi led quagmire
4:18 pm
we are helping saudi arabia drop bombs on churches and weddings we all want this conflict to end if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran as opposed to becoming a puppet of the free and a year war against who the rebels who they call terrorists that has turned yemen into a humanitarian catastrophe worse even than syria four and five yemeni civilians twenty four out of twenty eight million need aid to survive three in five or twenty million either on the brink or already starving that is the pump aoe has a solution the united states has given more than two billion dollars to help the many people since the start of the conflict. and saudi arabia has given over five
4:19 pm
hundred million dollars in two thousand and eighteen alone and as pledged an additional five hundred million dollars this year we sowed to about two dollars per hungry civilian per month from washington but adds for the cameras you know where the real money is guns oh yes guns are very very you know five hundred thirty three million dollars five hundred twenty five million dollars the screeners view. peanuts he says twelve point five billion dollars in that the u.s. is selling saudi arabia is peanuts what does that make the aid then but mr pompei zero is adamant if a little bit rabid in his support for saudi arabia and gun sales which really care about saudi lives you'd want to stop or run back to these from launching missiles
4:20 pm
into riyadh amazing how you can twist and turn reality on its head rather than protecting you many civilians from saudi arabia he's protecting saudi arabia from starving many civilians really and speaking of protecting saudi lives there is a tease to one life that washington didn't seem so concerned about mr howe shoji was the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing planned and perpetrated by officials of the state of saudi arabia riyadh has brushed off ickes ations that the rule family had anything to do with it saying it was rude to operation and that seems washington was all too happy to support this explanation you know we really. really really dollars profit us oil company. the banks the military or the trunk and usually not it is the
4:21 pm
administration's a democrat and republican serving interest though. and so many no relationship although that means. our empire. now is the priority not the lives of young men and or the people of saudi arabia where the. united states has made its largest deployment of strategic bombers to the u.k. and more than a decade the b. fifty two strategic bombers which is capable of carrying nuclear weapons to take part in nato drills in georgia close to russia's southern border it touched down just days after the pentagon mentioned the woods nuclear strike and russia has artie's kind of open. no limits on american military power even when it comes to news that seems to be the prevailing sentiment among certain forces earlier this
4:22 pm
year two u.s. senators put forward a new law to prohibit the first strike use of nuclear weapons by the united states they made it pretty simple the entire text of the law was one sentence it is the policy of the united states not to use nuclear weapons first now that's also the policy of the russian president but top u.s. military brass say that it's unacceptable and i wouldn't recommend any change to simplify and. decision making calculus and also can envision several circumstances where we would not want to remove that option from the president there are some circumstances apparently where nuking somebody who hasn't already knew you first might be a good idea we decided to talk to new yorkers and see what circumstances they think it might be can you think of any situation where we would nuke somebody who had nuke us first. now that's a like. i don't think that's right i don't know what the circumstances would be i mean like siri. i mean that makes sense to me like with syria what was going on
4:23 pm
hopefully lands over there not here so in some circumstances nuking somebody first might be a valid decision but what exactly constitutes aggression take it from the acting secretary of defense or competitors of not complacent china's defense spending china's organized approach to steal foreign technology russia for its part continues to compete asymmetrically with the united states now he made that statement while explaining why the us military budget despite being higher than every other country in the world by billions of dollars was actually going up so russia is doing it and we have to keep up but let's look at what russia is actually doing total combined military budget for nato countries in the year of twenty nineteen is roughly one thousand three hundred ninety five billion euros meanwhile russia is spending thirty nine billion euros so how exactly is the usa catching up china and russia in particular the capabilities developed over the last few years to limit our ability to operate freely in space cyber space land sea and air in the
4:24 pm
capabilities that we have identified in this year's budget really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to ensure interest in the context that emerging threats for china and russia so at this point us military policy has two major promises number one first strikes with nuclear weapons are a ok and number two russia and china two major nuclear powers are bad and must be opposed anyone think of a greater recipe for disaster. r.t. new york the pentagon isn't the only one talking tough so too is u.s. senator and presidential hopeful i mean. sometimes yes. i push people and it's true. i would trade you for bottled water.
4:25 pm
to throw off his real juice and frustration including binders and foam employees were asked to perform duties they described as the media pushing her dishes for. negative reports of how you may get some of your staff in the past what to buy when you're out there on the world stage and dealing with people like flattery of the day you want someone to stop. that news for this hour the next update off the crossover looks at whether the u.s. is going to grow to global isolation.
