a free speech conference is going to defend freedom of press. you're watching international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program russia's defense minister has described how her roic navy officers sacrificed their lives saving colleagues and civilian experts on board when their deep sea submersible caught fire on monday. join me to discuss the details. well so far the details that we've hired were pretty scarse we know we know that on july the 1st a deep sea vessels submersible caught fire while on a mission and apparently it was the assignment this is what we're getting from the defense ministry in the course of the fire 14 people turned up dead so now the defense minister rushes defense and defense minister sergei show who has offered
10:02 am
a bit more has offered an insight as to what happened on board during that fire and apparently the crew 1st they evacuated a civilian we don't know much about who that civilian is whether it's getting down to the simplest of details like it was a new worry she what they were doing there we know it was an industry professional and that sick so after evacuating that civilian they sealed to the behind them just to prevent the fire from spreading across the vessel and so then they fought the fire and they fought for the lives of their comrades they fought for the vessel to survive and when the russian defense minister talked about this he did not mince his words. it is similar to put the word in. acted heroically in the critical situation because of the lives they completed the task of good out the fire that saved the cooperates and the deep water source so essentially what they did they
10:03 am
dealt with the epicenter of the fire and that's why the death toll didn't go much higher that's why the death toll is at 14 because it could be much worse so essentially yeah they saved the lives of their colleagues by sacrificing their own and what can you tell us about the sailors who perished well again this is not much details they're the only thing that we know it came from the russian president from vladimir putin we know that there were heroes of russia among those who perished we know that all of them were offices ranking and so glad i'm a putin revealed that as he offered his deepest condolences to the families and friends have a listen. to give the 47 or top rank captains who are heroes of russia this is a big loss for the fleet i offer sincere condolences to the families of the deceased everything must be done to help and support them in the so this is pretty much all we know about the crew officially we don't know any names we don't we
10:04 am
haven't seen any lists yet and the spokesman for the russian president when he was asked the question he said that this is basically because of the secrecy of the matter the commander in chief has all the information but naturally this information cannot be made public it belongs to the category of state secrets so no it's not a tool or that no more information has been shared. there is already a commission that's been formed and it's been tossed with one thing looking into investigating as to what caused the tragedy was caused on board of that submersible it is led by russia's naval chief so the only way we i think we can expect any other more official information being released about the tragedy is through the verdict and through the findings or this commission. violence has flared up in tel aviv during a rally in honor of an ethiopian israeli teenager were shot dead by an off duty police officer.
10:05 am
that was. thousands took to the streets in what appears to have been a spontaneous demonstration some clashed with riot police and other set cars and trash bins on fire the officer who shot the teenager said he felt his life was in danger after he started throwing rocks at him the teenager's family has demanded an immediate investigation into the matter ethiopian community in israel often described mistreatment at the hands of the authorities there a spokesperson for israel please describe what will happen next. there were
10:06 am
a number of suspects that were involved in a fight in a local park a police officer who was in plain clothes he approached those individuals and requested to see their id what happened was is the situation developed and they started throwing stones at him he was hit and struck by stones and he felt that he was in a life threatening situation he responded by drawing his record firing to the floor busy and what we know is. that the bullet struck the floor busy and then on for 2 struck one of the men who was taken to hospital in serious condition and later passed away since the burial of the individual that was unfortunately killed number one there's an investigation taking place as to what happened and number 2 the israeli national police are dealing in focusing with what is the fact that since the funeral which is unfortunate in large scale riots in and around almost all have made to drum friends across israel protesters attacked civilians police officers throwing petrol bombs as well as burning vehicles just over 3 years ago there was
10:07 am
a similar incident and it took months almost 2 years in order to rebuild the trust and this is 140 there was a recent incident has taken both ethiopian to unity as well as the israeli police to a level one an area which we didn't want to reach it's obviously going to take time but we're focusing on the period that we're in at the moment which is dealing with the protests calming the situation down. britain's foreign office has posted a video demanding freedom of the press across the world ahead of a conference on free speech. john with the commissioner an examination bring them into that. we're joined live by our taste kate partridge in london kate what's the reaction been to this. hi there jacki yes you saw the promotional video that came up on the foreign offices twitter feed and this is all about promoting the annual conference

10:09 am
by his father john chipped in. of course mixed feeling for the overjoyed and are we to stress the road. constant. or no and. i'm c.c. . toward. the we're both. here well those 9 years that jump ship summers referring to there were basically going back to that extradition claim by sweden for alleged sexual assault all the way back to 2012 and in those years in the meantime julian assange has been fighting to clear his name also to fight extradition he's also fighting extradition to the united states and that's that's in relation to chelsea manning and all those alleged war crimes that were apparently exposed bought by her in the leaks that were provided to wiki leaks and so while the u.k. is preparing for this conference on media freedom in melbourne they're having this party but also this sort of commemorations for julian
10:10 am
a song and also protests in the meantime the 48 year old himself is spending his 1st day in belmarsh prison inside london because he's in breach of his bell conditions that's what they are 50 weeks and also waiting for that full u.s. extradition hearing that will take place in february next year. ok partridge thank you for bringing us that report. an airstrike on a migrant detention center in the libyan capital has killed 44 people and injured more than 130 according to the u.n. mission to the country and warning you may find the following images disturbing officials at the target center allege the strike was ordered by opposition general we for after he launched an offensive to wrest control of the capital in early april rebel government has not commented on the allegations. mean all british m.p.'s are debating what to do with frozen funds in the account of ousted libyan leader moammar gadhafi by barca has more. if you run
10:11 am
a business say one of these offices or shop before 2011 then your landlord one being one colonel gaddafi he like to be known as the king of kings and his big bank reflected that before his downfall and death in 2011 exactly as libyan investment authority had amassed some 12000000000 pounds worth of assets in the u.k. alone among them in portland house on london's oxford street the 2 $1011.00 un back to libyan intervention came with a un backed libyan asset freeze 2 that meant that any libyan accounts in the u.k. were frozen and according to a report by a government committee the u.k. tax man could be scooping tax from those frozen assets the government said mick did that its own $17000000.00 pounds in tax on the frozen libyan assets in the process
10:12 am
3 years h.-m. revenue and customs that the tax man here won't reveal any more than mt and now some british politicians want that tax revenue to be put to good use the deputy head of northern ireland proxy because urged the prime minister to use those 17000000 pounds in tax collected from libyan assets in the u.k. to compensate the victims of libyan backed ira terrorism the prime minister will be aware be to be the long standing problem for justice and compensation by victims of the libyan. terrorism in northern ireland did throughout the u.k. u.s. citizens have been compensated by the libyan authorities but the u.k. should not that's unlikely say the. x.
10:13 am
the reason why this is where the murder is much more of the mess that political affairs are getting what's more about the relationship between the conservative party. but it's also partly. it's just that it's been done because the government is in the midst of a. civil war. and the interest of that money even for the symbols of the question all this raises is when the libyan money well finally returned to the people of libya the country is in a state of civil war and its rival governments haven't requested the funds back in april libya's house of representatives called on the international community not to release any libyan assets abroad until a unified government is formed this u.s. news report is from 2011 the u.s. treasury department has $37000000000.00 worth of funds that were accessible to more
10:14 am
market off his regime frozen in the in the united states the u.s. government is holding this money but does not control what it has to release the funds back to the newlib libyan government when the government requests it and the you want to prove that and the treasury spokeswoman says they are working with libya's transitional council and the state department to do just that that was 8 years ago they're still working on it right now it's hard to see when the situation in libya will be safe enough for the money to be returned without the risk of it being misappropriated by rival governing factions but in the meantime all those frozen assets are breathing life and liquidity into banks in the u.k. europe and the u.s. is that money has to be where it's limited absolutely want to be liquidated it would cause a massive where there and global markets are just taking that money a little. economy that is especially when it's that especially in your there's very
10:15 am
much territory but it's facing difficulties with their careers or lives of over 7 years and i came across very much as a result of it and that's what i said seeing in the corridors in the time that libya resigned because more pressure him but certainly not overturn the signs of ways around the global markets and i think this is the moment it's a very convenient that they do not sense of urgency very convenient of that money and what we put in a european investment bank. still to come 400 schools are being closed in rural france i'll tell you why after this short break. you know world's big partners to do a lot of things and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter
10:16 am
we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. magic mushrooms seize down some concepts used in the wrong way carry carry potential arms like any any psychoactive substances. but used in the right way they seem to have quite a. profound therapy to potential and quite a good safety lifelong as well.
10:17 am
welcome back to the program and friends hundreds of rule schools are about to close forever that's despite promises by president micron to keep them open he was responding to demands by the yellow bus protest movement takes a closer look at the issue. it's been 2 months since french president emanuel kwan promised that no more schools would close in 3 of what he should not have closings of schools or hospitals without mayors accord until the end of my presidential term and it's now more than 350 rural schools are closing their doors and people in communities like this one a furious it's terrible that schools are closing in rural areas because for the education and well being of children small establishment are much better than big schools for kids to go all summer to learn should not be tied to if i have a place to go or not i think it is but it would be a bad decision to close those schools even if there are not enough students when i
10:18 am
was on the clip or we need schools to educate the next generation with our future with our schools we can move on if the foundation of everything if these schools close there will be fewer and fewer children and families in the villages and religious will die out that's why it's very important to keep schools open to make them attractive so more families will bring their kids there to be fair the french president hasn't gone back on his word he did say local authorities would have the final say on meet the police officer what he says is that the promise will be kept 100 percent mr mccraw answer that they will not close any school without agreement from local mayors and this is exactly what we are doing but who's behind the push for local municipalities to do this i am surprised that the mayors are in favor of the closure of a school this is the only social fabric that remains for villages from which have gradually disappeared post offices shops where the school closes it is heartbreaking for citizens and elected officials critics point out the government
10:19 am
toys finding elected officials who agree to close schools some mayors have had time to work on their closure project but others have done it under duress so how do you get the mayor's views in some cases they're told anyway there will be. teachers in front of your students so regroup while it may not make direct financial sense for schools to remain open when the classrooms are not full it hardly encourages families to move to the ball areas and address the growing demographic crisis in the regions when a school is closing i do believe that it is very it's like a heart attack you know because you are just. facing reality in which you have the feeling that the village is dying the small town is dying and everything is collapsing this is something that my call we live. it is marked
10:20 am
once for all because he hasn't changed you karaoke or policy he hasn't changed the you know insha'allah and budget policy you know is still you know on just let's say again ensure the world why economy which is not what the french want. students are you can a secondary school have started a petition after they were banned from wearing skirts and a bed to promote gender neutrality under the new role of pupils that appleton aca academy in northern england will have to wear trousers starting from september. both female and male students parents in some teachers believe that the fed the school has decided to make wearing transit and lay shoes compulsory for gender neutrality is a complete farce and the rule should be overturned hundreds have signed the petition however the school insists that most parents and students have responded positively. there are a number of reasons for this change it is gender neutral in line with the policy in
10:21 am
the majority of secondary schools it simplifies the uniform and it removes the issue of pupils wearing skirts that are inappropriate led the majority of parents have responded with positive feedback and are supportive of the change and understand the reasons for its school uniforms they signify membership of a body a group of people and usually you know there's a decision about what color what you know the symbols are included head teacher often decides what clothes should be worn i hope that what's being chosen has no or is not about dogma it's about consistency or think it's probably true to say that it's well intentioned i mean this the mess is toward children in school it's to treat other children as they want to be treated as the golden rule so it's do is to help they all g.b.t. community but actually i think it's going to be counterproductive because many
10:22 am
girls will see your skirt as part of the family law dentity so if you take away the scourge so you can wear a skirt you ban the skirts what you're doing is robbing them of their identities form of identity theft and it's going to make life probably more difficult for the r.g.p. t. community rather than helping them so i would really go as the school to do what most schools do and not banned this this uniform article for girls i think is going to be counterproductive i know that the the person speaking opposite me refers to l. g.b.t. but i'm a lesbian i'm a feminist i mean i'm a poet possibly a bit more neutral about it because i'm also a mother a grandmother and i don't think that we should have these kinds of arguments which are which are. you know one group against another ok it's right to think it is right to think about what young. people want to listen i don't know to what extent
10:23 am
i mean lots of girls do object to the way that to the way that boys. finish ice them or i would say that there's a danger here that quite a lot of children who are who are not part of the algae bt community they will be a subject into this they're going to have their view soured by this and i don't think it's going to help harmony we need to bring people together when you stop banning skirts you're going to alienate quite a lot of people and it's going to focus attention on those people who are banning it is going to focus attention on the algae bt community they need support that don't need to have to ban things to help the r.g.b. to community and i'm sure many people on either side of this debate would agree with me you know we help the l.g. bt community by promoting tolerance of inclusion tolerance of the girls and the heterosexual community so we've got to be fair to both sides one over the other give freedom to the girls to. sports where giant nike has special
