french government prepares to rallies in certain areas after widespread vandalism and looting. and police arrested the chief suspect in a street car shooting. in which three people. were broadcast. in the wake of friday's terror attack on two mosques in christ church new zealand is looking at ways of preventing similar atrocities in the future prime minister is promising to change the country's gun laws sharply criticized social media platforms which he says needed to do far more to tackle extremist content earlier my colleague you know neil discussed the story with. and your hearkens questions
10:02 pm
are being raised as to what exactly happened in the lead up on the aftermath of this terrible act of barbarity among some of those 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 is shared subsequently on 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 too public good one arrest already confirmed 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
10:03 pm
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 shared multiple times a kind to a kind 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 was that removed one point five million views of the attack globally of which over one 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 lose nil we are working vigilantly to remove any violent footage of course i don't think anybody is under the illusion is here that so. removing these streams any quicker would have of course saved the lives of
10:04 pm
these innocent people but there are questions raised us too 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 in the moderators the algorithms that try how exactly this can be stopped from happening again. facebook has admitted that it only stopped to the live stream of the massacre after it received an alert from police in new zealand we asked media and legal analyst lionel and counterterrorism expert jennifer breeden where the tech giants should have acted quicker to block the video. i respectfully submit that when you show violence against human beings it's a form of pornography we have to as a society say no facebook you can do much better for kids for people who would see this we're hearing from officials government officials from the prime minister in new zealand talking about preventing future attacks like this and then going on to censoring when this attack happens how in the world does that
10:05 pm
prevent this attack what's happening is that we're going into new regulations rather than spending time talking about mental health what the failures are the gaps in mental health or investigative powers or why our law enforcement hasn't caught things the issue is should this be banned yes should it come down immediately yes should this be kept from the public yes take it down i want facebook and others abroad to have a second you know whatever attitude allowing your world or not they have we're talking to you now and you're doing about t.v. do you know they're talking about arguing people will hardly blinded from these sightings will fellow lying dead but you're not talking about how will this prevent it nobody's talking about provide to the question or should be banned them say yes now listen dr berger do me a favor if you see somebody shooting and killing people shut it down we'll talk about it later what my concern is when we continue to ban these kinds of things can ban this kind of stuff that's only going to perpetuate shadow banning i am shadow
10:06 pm
bad so no fast and i want them to use that technology right now people are being killed in my opinion we should at least let them keep their hands off it and let us let we the people be able to create either new companies split them up or be able to have platforms that we can at least have truth going out more of that more questions more prevention. more things that really can be brought to the forefront so that we're not banned and we're not giving banning power in the hands of somebody the hope that be on the things that we like and not the things that we don't like we're also allowing the next sick dog the ability to say wait a minute this may be the chance this might be my top of the world mom moment that i've been waiting one of the main problems on the scene here is that we continue to put band-aids on gunshot wounds and we need to stop that we need to stop putting band-aids on. there are just ten days to go until britain is scheduled to leave the e.u. and to the prime minister has been dealt yet another blow the house of commons speaker
10:07 pm
has ruled out of third vote on teresa mayes divorce plan unless significant changes are made to it and he's probably boyko reports. look if you got an f. for your homework would you bring it back on change to the teacher and say oh well you've got to really give me a good grade because the exams are coming up soon most people wouldn't but that's pretty much want to reason i was planning on doing with her beleaguered bragg's it withdrawal deal it's been rejected by politicians in parliament twice already after the first catastrophic vote she went back to brussels she tweaked the deal but she still failed to get it approved last week one politician referred to it as a polished turd of a deal and yet we had been her hearing these rumors that the government was planning to take this unchanged deal back to the politicians for a third vote this week the only difference would be that the risk of
10:08 pm
a no deal bragg zat or no brags it via a lengthy delay might make politicians choose may's deal as the least of all the evils however the speaker of the house of commons john bercow has just thrown a constitutional curveball into to reason may's court take a listen to what he had to say today has been strongly. no i have not received confirmation of this that third and even possibly four meaningful vote. will be attempted what the government can more legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same even proposition or substantially the same proposition as last of last week which was rejected by one hundred fourteen. so very hears torpedoing the idea of another
10:09 pm
vote unless to reason may substantially improves her homework or changes her a deal that politicians are meant to be voting on now he's based on this legal precedent called skin may and you might be hearing a lot about it in the weeks to come essentially it's a parliamentary mechanism terribly old used as far back as sixteen zero four but it's meant to stop government's bullying through legislation that's how this is being seen as politicians what does all this mean for greg's it that's what you asked me well if it was possible in any way to reason made job has just got even harder she's set to attend the e.u. council summit on thursday but now she needs to come back from there with a substantially changed deal when the e.u. has said repeatedly that there is absolutely no way they are making any more
10:10 pm
concessions for the u.k. on the continent itself some people are taking the more light hearted view of the chaos and westminster french minister for europe natalie has improved briggs it because of his habit of asking to be let out and then refusing to leave. he wakes me up every morning meowing to death because he wants to go out and then

when i open the door he undecided and then glares at me when i put him out. meanwhile france has its own problems. with the prime minister. protests will be banned in areas that have suffered riots and vandalism. in the neighborhoods that have been most affected as soon as we become aware of the presence of extremist elements in their intention to vandalize. paris. and plastic. the measure follows weekend of anti-government rallies again they were marred by violence with fires being set a luxury shops looted in clashes with police. reports now from the. one
10:12 pm
of the world's most glamorous avenues looks very different this monday a burnt out kiosks shattered windows and graffiti on luxury stores that's the face of the iconic show selling say after the protest on saturday the french government has already admitted that not enough was done to prevent extreme rioting from taking place analysis of events shows that the measures taken proved to be insufficient in containing the violence and preventing the actions of the riders protesters who are throwing rocks right into the windows of the shops they used molotov cocktails flares and pieces of piece meant to damaged buildings police say ten thousand people gathered here on saturday and among them fifteen hundred extremists were identified two hundred forty people were arrested and over eighty shops including some luxury boutiques were vandalized.
10:13 pm
was. the french president was forced to cut short his skiing trip for an emergency meeting he said that what happened was no longer a demonstration it has become a national security threat. we didn't seem to fit to meet complete nonsense made the softening by the prime minister republican or the response to the reality in the face. and not of protests by free citizens we are giving ourselves the authority to apply by an uncertain switch so next saturday the seans that we say as well as other places that have been worst hit by the crisis will be closed to public gatherings and yellow vests protest for the eighteenth we can so far it is unclear what may ease the tension and put an end to this violence i do not question
10:14 pm
r.t. reporting from paris french a political commentator thinks the battle will not get to the root of the problem. that's not going to change in addition to the depth of the problem the depth of the problem is that we have had forty years of socially. cutting social services deemed a sleazy asian and so people are fed up with to speak to police mccoy's not responsible but my point is to hold them in never mention anything about older people getting wounded lost eyes etc the only concern about you know it is. people even more so it's easier sponsibility in those who are going to ski when he knows that his is going to be in trouble everybody has announced that he's the question also why didn't the police prevent that because he doesn't the newspaper knew everybody knew that the. dutch police say they have arrested
10:15 pm
a suspect after a shooting on a street car in the city of tracks on the monday morning three people were killed and five more injured suspect is a thirty seven year old turkish born man he had been on the dutch authorities radar for some time following several past offenses the motive for the shooting is not yet known with more details here as local crime reporter wreaks. what we still don't know if there's any terrorist threat anymore or maybe we have to look for other reasons why it is shooting a place where all this not much going on now it's a moment near the tram seems to be quiet. police actions are moved to other locations since sound we know been rates in several homes as of right now we know that one the police have got one suspects it's. a man thirty seven year old from he's been living in holland and in a group where david low about how countries across europe are dealing with the
10:16 pm
threat of such attacks. we have been learning lessons from it and how how to deal with an instant quickly so what one advantage is because they do talk to each other it isn't just isolated isn't just a french police deal with an instance of the police or u.k. we have this information. you know regardless of whether the u.k. remains of the or not with the latest. debate going on but you know you're opposed played a very important role in this as the policing agencies intelligence based agency and want to 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 i think that's the benefit. for paul match in athens was marred by clashes between fans and .
10:17 pm
i. the game was interrupted it just six minutes in when dozens of masked fans attempted to invade the pitch referee eventually abandoned the fixture in the second half as police used tear gas to disperse angry supporters of the match official said that the stadium was not safe as toxic gas forced fans to move closer to the pitch no serious injuries or arrests were reported. celebrations have been taking place across crimea marking five years since the peninsula was reunified with russia r.t.c. because dollars there. well the celebrations have gone into the night really and there was something of a nature's gift here the weather was absolutely beautiful a warm sun out in the open in the streets in the square and really that's what they did sounds of people have turned up and really five years is a bit of
10:18 pm
a long time so i took we took to some of the crime ins and ask them how their life's changed in this half a decade yet that interested seeing as a resident of the city al 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 agree 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 the russian president vladimir putin has visited the region and he spoke about the including so of the decision he had made five years ago effectively giving the
10:19 pm
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 election electrical supply see crimea as being very dependent on ukraine on its vote the previous owner so to speak it 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 here would be either. incapable of or simply not willing to provide enough energy so people's homes would go dark repeatedly the whole of the peninsula would go dark today vote . i'm a putin launched to power plants in full capacity in fact this is so powerful 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 our own going on so this is this is
10:20 pm
just to celebrate. the u.s. secretary of state has defended washington's backing of the saudi led coalition's bombing campaign in yemen that follows a senate vote last week to withdraw support my pompei o says its continuation is the way to ensure just peace and to alleviate suffering in the war torn country the senators who voted say they want to end the bombing in yemen and support human rights but we're really to 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 the many people 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 and ensure just peace donald trump's arms deals with
10:21 pm
saudi arabia are expected to total three hundred fifty billion dollars and apart from military equipment washington provides riyadh with logistics and intelligence our senior correspondent. looks deeper into the u.s. secretary of state's comments. the united states makes no secret of what it stands for freedom justice democracy and saudi arabia the white house stands for 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 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
10:22 pm
becoming a puppet of the free and fair saudi arabia but what do we know the saudis have waged a four year war against who with 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 i the on the brink already starving that is to pump a zero 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 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
10:23 pm
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 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
10:24 pm
arabia from starving many civilians really and speaking of protecting saudi lives there is at least one life that washington didn't seem so concerned about mr hersh 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 ruled the operation and that seems washington was all too happy to support this explanation. here we need to build a relationship with the u.s. soil company the bank the military corporations the new trump government and usually not just the trump government but the administrations in washington democrat and republican serve the interests of those big banks and corporations and so many that relationship and with all that it means for profit and how our empire
10:25 pm
the interest of empire that is the priority not the lives of the people the young men of the people the saudi arabia the people of venezuela or for that matter the people of the united states. the united states has made its largest deployment a strategic bomber to the u.k. in more than a decade b. fifty two aircraft which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons are to take part in nato drills in georgia close to russia's southern border artie's came up and has . no limits on american military power even when it comes to new that seems to be the prevailing sentiment among certain forces earlier this 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
10:26 pm
simplify and. decision making calculus but 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 first it 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 a nuke just first. have a look. i don't think that's right i don't know what the circumstances would be i mean like syria i mean that makes sense to me spotlight with syria what was going on hopefully wins 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 being complacent china's defense spending china's organized approach to steal foreign technology russia for its part
10:27 pm
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 but let's look at what raw. 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 cyberspace land sea and air in the capabilities that we have identified in this year's budget really designed to allow us to project power when it were necessary to venture interests in the context that an emerging threat 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.
10:28 pm
new york that does a female back with headlines in the thirty one minutes and seconds stay with us and search which. seems wrong. just don't. let me. get to see. just to become educated and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
10:29 pm
they tasted it as because at that apple has been comment about what eat on is in that case if you it gives it not yours forty eight on because it's been three day. so odd there's even a book. this is boom bust broadcasting around the world and covering the world of business and finance and the impact upon all of us you me the guy behind the tree everybody i'm bart chilton washington d.c. and we are so please i'm honored to have you with us thanks for joining and coming up today some say the best way to get out of a hole is to first quit digging right well dick's sporting goods once nothing to do with that strategy as far as the negative impact on revenues as
