11:02 am
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 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 and. acted heroically critical situation from a compartment that was engulfed 1st to disability industry represented the growth that had been lying to him to the fire from spreading throughout. so essentially
11:03 am
what they did they 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 those sailors who perished well again desire 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 a ranking. report revealed that as he offered his deepest condolences to the families and friends have a listen. to give of 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
11:04 am
much all we know about the crew officially we don't know any names we don't we 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 at all odd that no more information has been shared there is already a commission has been formed and has been tasked 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 that through the verdict and through the findings of this commission. violence has flared up in tel aviv during a rally in honor of an ethiopian israeli teenager who was shot dead by an after the police officer. you.
11:05 am

11:06 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 weapon firing to the floor and what we know is that the bullet struck the floor and then on for 2 struck one of the men who was taken to hospital in serious condition relating to passed away since the 3 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 city so dealing i'm focusing with what is the fact that since the funeral which is unfortunate i mean i know it's jail riots in and around almost all of the made to drunk friends across israel protesters attack civilians police offices throwing petrol bombs. what is burning vehicles well just over 3 years ago there
11:07 am
was a similar incident and it took months and almost years in order to rebuild the trust this is 141 the recent incident has taken both the unity as well as these are the police to a level in the 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 calling the situation down. 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 in the country warning you may find the following images disturbing officials of the target center of alleged the strike was ordered by opposition general after he launched an offensive to wrest control of the capital in early april rebel government has not commented on the allegations. meanwhile british m.p.'s are debating what to do with frozen funds and accounts of ousted
11:08 am
libyan leader moammar gadhafi or barca has more. if you run a business in one of these offices or shop before 2011 and then your landlord what do you mean one colonel gaddafi he like to be known as king of kings and his piggy bank reflected that before his downfall and back 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 2011 u.n. backed libyan intervention came with a un backed libyan set for us to do 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 make
11:09 am
good that is and $17000000.00 pounds in tax on the frozen libyan assets in the process 3 years h.m. revenue and customs that the tax man here won't reveal any more than a now some british politicians one that tax revenue to be put to good deputy head of an iowa. state because urge that my minister to use days $17000000.00 pounds in tax collected for libyan assets in the u.k. to credit and say the victims of libyan backed ira terrorism by the prime minister will be aware of the total high school be the longstanding campian for justice and compensation by victims of the libyan sponsored. terrorism in northern ireland and did throughout the u.k. u.s. citizens stop being compensated by libyan authorities but the u.k.
11:10 am
says it's just not that's on the lighting of the exit that it's the reason why this is her around more than is much more of the mess that the 3rd begins and what's more whether we're going to be in the conservative party. but it's also. going to argue this is just. because there is a. civil war. in the interest of that money and for the symbols of the question all this raises is when the libyan money well finally returned to the people of libya the countries 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.
11:11 am
treasury department has $37000000000.00 worth of funds that were accessible to more market off he and 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 that government requests it and the you want to prove that and a 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 missteps appropriated 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. there's no money to be on board it's limited absolutely want to be liquidated it
11:12 am
was cool to see. where they were in global markets or just taking that money out of the global economy that is especially when it's the especially your there's there's yes there is heat but it's facing difficulties with roads it could certainly civil war some years. as a result of libya and that's what i said seeing your liquidation with libya because more pressure him but certainly the literally sunsilk which is where the global markets are think this is the moment it's a very convenient that they do not that's the reason it's a very convenient for the money you can look. at your feet and with the bank. britain's foreign office has posted a video demanding freedom of the press across the world i had a conference on free speech. with the commissioner of examination were you thinking of. the promotional video that you've just seen has been posted on the foreign offices
11:13 am
. twitter feed and it's to promote the upcoming conference on press freedom the irony is that amongst all of that for the emphasis on freedom of speech and freedom for the press there's no mention anywhere of julian assange which was something that wasn't lost on his supporters who said plenty of things below on that twitter feed you have to believe in freedom before you write about it today julian assange just birthday wish him a happy day in your prison this is hilarious considering you're currently a daughter in one of the premier journalists of all time who came up with this complain take action to free a sanch if you mean it the found media freedom. well as well as that promotional video the foreign office also had on its twitter feed about imprisoned journalists and also called for people to follow the hash tag defend media freedom of course which is very much a sponsor by jeremy hunt the foreign secretary and the conservative leadership party candidate as well as amal clooney the human rights lawyer who in the past has
11:14 am
represented julian a song though this is rather ironic because it's come on the 48th birthday of julian assange and in melbourne his hometown where his father lives there have been celebrations and commemorations off the wiki leaks founder of course we're in for. the overjoyed and in a bit distressed and overwrought. constant. noise. i'm. sure. you're aware of. all those 9 years that jump ship some are so far into 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 very exposed by her in the leaks that were provided to
11:15 am
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 with julian assange and also protests in the meantime the 48 year old himself is spending his birthday belmarsh prison 100 because he's a breach of his belt editions that's what they preserved for 50 weeks and also waiting for that for us extradition hearing that will take place in february next year still to come after days of dispute leaders finally agree on candidates for brussels top jobs more on that after this short break. same wrong but old rules just don't. let me. get to shape out just to get out of jail and engagement because betrayal.
11:16 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. what politicians do. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so if you want to be president. or something want to. watch it right. it's like the. 3 of them keep it. interesting always a. welcome
11:17 am
back parliament has elected its new president italy's david saucily of the socialist and democrat faction but i mean he's have yet to prove successor as european commission chief you leaders proposed german defense minister ursula of on the line she will now need the backing of a majority of the $750.00 want to any peace she's known as a federalist supporting the creation of a single united states of europe sovereign nation and army she would become the 1st woman to head the commission which has helped her win support but not everyone is sold on her candidacy especially as a leader suddenly scrap the established nomination system requiring her to have formal backing of a party group. from her line is our weakest minister that's apparently enough to become commission president oh sort of on the line is unacceptable this head of the e.u. commission for social democrats we cannot simply throw the top candidate principle overboard because the results of the election did not see some heads of government
11:18 am
very disappointing deal of the council this is old europe at its worst a back door deal with candidates emerging to please the national leaders from germany france and spain this is not the change that was promised to european votes is. e.p. should not follow. leaders have also put forward a new head of the council who will take over from double tough they've opted for the belgian prime minister over the pick doesn't sit well with many in the european parliament either by supporting any p.s.r. particularly angry as michelle openly mocks the idea of britain quitting the bloc. let's bring in german political scientist dr pat self for more on this now well enough m.e.p. is approved on a line to get her the job. well there is high probability that there would be some difficulties for getting to prove it by the parliament but if a parliament with the nivea approve it then the european union votes in that would
11:19 am
be in a big crisis indeed and my feeling is that the members of parliament who shot back from that if she is approved will she be able to heal the deep east west divide. there's a do not believe because as a divides in the european union. for more far reaching reasons than a chorus about top leaders in the european union the 1st tour is. the way into the future of the european union should be a way which would cause supra nationalism meaning that the european union should establish a system of government buffy nation state or rest of the european union should go down the parts of government to listen which means that the national governments are the key players in the e.u. and the 2nd major street is the one between the old european union which was france
11:20 am
and germany and italy and the middle eastern european states and the. now to european states that one of my creation issues the other on currency issues so those are really. the every serious challenges which need to be faced and these words about food and they'll are only an indicator of how deep the crisis of the european union really is. the things on the line has proven herself an efficient leader in her previous post. well actually she is one of the ministers in merkel's government selling for the longest time she has been a minister of defense frankly not without too much success and she has alienated the army from her at sea as a problem commander of the of the army but she is a very tough person able to win over rivals and maybe with her
11:21 am
skills she can do a good job at the top position of the european commission she has all the experiences which president mccall failed to be missing in the case of the top candidate to bieber he's known of course to want a united states of europe does that reflect the desires of the parliament as a whole. well the parliament in fact would like to lock down the of a truth super nationalism with a strong role of the european parliament the european parliament. bringing something like a european government which is to commission into office controlling the activities of the government so this is something to parliament aims at but the interests of the european nation states are quite different they want to stay in control over their population. domestic politics and this is
11:22 am
a split this is a challenge hits is a problem and this is a bunch of difficulties which one of the line if the case if he if she should be elected will have to address during the coming years and it's quite uncertain whether she or somebody else might be successful in holding together the. differend deciders of the european nations and tell us what you make of the establishing the nomination system being suddenly abandon in this case. well it was not nothing like of the established nomination system it was an exception of the last european election there's osha democrat of the european peoples party agreed there to whoever might be the stronger military party group would have the right urge or nominate the president of her 1st as a parliament and. that her top candidate otherwise would become president of the
11:23 am
commission but this was a unique event which already at that time are strongly opposed by european top politicians and this time there is no longer a joint majority of the social democrats and of the european peoples party in the fall of men and therefore this unique nomination procedure will not be replicated ended was not very probable that this war like last time german political scientist dr van our paths all thank you for joining us on the program today. and friends hundreds of are all schools are about to close for ever that's despite promises by president micron to keep them open he was responding to demands by the yellow vests protest movement takes a closer look at the issue. it's been 2 months since french president emmanuel lock on the promise that no more schools would close in a preview of what we should not have closings of schools or hospitals without
11:24 am
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 somewhere 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 was on the couple and 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 villages 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
11:25 am
have the final say the police officer what he says is that the promise will be kept 100 percent mr mcmahon said 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 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. you know teachers in front of your students so regroup while it may not make direct financial sense for schools to remain open when the costumes are not full it hardly
11:26 am
encourages families to move to the rule areas and to trace the growing demographic crisis in the region's went to. school it's closing i do believe that the. very it's like a heart attack you know it goes you are just. facing reality and awaits you have the feeling that give village is dying that is more tony's dying and it was saying is collapsing this is something that my call. if you mark one's soul because he hasn't changed you carry out your policy he hasn't changed the financial and budget but it's you know you feel you know just let's say it again and show the world why economy which is not what the french want. that's a global news update for this hour but don't forget you can always had to our website
