a british foreign office motional to care about a free speech conference calling to defend the freedom of the press. that's just gone 4 am here and the russian cop time stuffed it in with the latest international news room welcome. a miniature court has cleared a navy seal accused of multiple war crimes of key charges as well as the controversial nature of his acquittal edward gallegos once again raises questions over pentagon conduct overseas caleb maupin has the details. the military court in san diego has acquitted gallagher on 6 out of the 7 charges that he faced involving the killing of civilians he was convicted on a charge of posing for a photograph with a corpse which is a violation of the rules however of the maximum sentence for such
9:02 pm
a violation is only 4 months in prison and he's served 9 months in pretrial detention so at this point he is indeed a free man now it appears that his acquittal was essentially hinged on the testimony of a of a navy seal medic who testified that he himself was responsible for the killing of the the ice still fighter who was captured the teenager that he himself was responsible for this this fighters death and that it wasn't any gallagher now it's interesting to note that this navy seal key had been given immunity so he cannot be charged for this killing now when the verdict came in the family and legal team of eddie gallagher was triumphant huge victory huge we call to gallagher's huge victory for justice with stealing liquor finally been defeated after being terrorized by the government that my husband bought for for 2 decades the war on terror he's brought every major enemy of the united states here they write this and
9:03 pm
noble individual and his name has been smeared in flanders interact with the mud now it's important to note that it was any gallagher's own platoon members in the navy seals who turned him in saying that he had shot civilians and that he had posted a photo on social media of the corpse with himself holding the head of the still fighter and holding up his knife saying got him with my knife however he has been acquitted and at this point we've seen donald trump tweeting out in support of any gallagher saying his wonderful wife andre and his family entire family you have been through much together glad. i could help but that's us president donald trump however there have been many voices on social media that have seemingly accused eddie gallagher of being guilty of these crimes and said he is a war criminal saying that his acquittal is a bit of a disgrace and hurts the image of the united states around the world so quite a bit of
9:04 pm
a mixed reaction on social media to the acquittal well as we just heard from kate gallagher was found guilty of posing for a photo with a corpse on a wednesday she was sentenced to 4 months of confinement he's already doubled the time though in the form of pretrial detention the navy seal will also have both his rank and reduced veteran i'm all for who we heard from today piece that ad we've got a good design operation. i think it a gallery hero not just to the united states and united states military but to the world because he's over there fighting isis which is an enemy that very few countries are willing to put forth troops and resources to can to fight themselves so he basically is being charged with premeditated murder for an isis fighter in my mind and i'm just a simple man here but that sounds like an oxymoron that you would send a navy seal to go fight isis which is a cancer upon humanity yes or humans but they've made themselves to be monsters and
9:05 pm
so they should be treated as such and so when you say that you're going to charge someone with premeditated murder of isis in a combat zone little own a navy seal i just think that's completely contradictory it doesn't make any sense . violence has flared up in tennessee during the body and on up here is raging teenager who was shot dead by an often to police officer. you. know. that's like it was it. was. thousands took to the streets in what appears to be

9:07 pm

9:11 pm
ambassador to the foreign office comes after he said that relations between the u.k. and china had been damaged following comments by the foreign secretary jeremy hunt and others in regards to those protests and not to the phone calls let's have a look 1st of all of what jeremy hunt had to say previously about this we urge the authorities not to use what happened as a pretext for oppression but rather to understand the root causes of what happened which is a deep seated concern by people in hong kong for their basic freedoms are under attack well since then the u.k. government is also announced their export license is or by to be such a c.s. gas and riot gear when aides have been banned china as a result of those protests that china is fear are seeing that the u.k. has waded into a cell for an argument and the ambassador the johnnies ambassador to the u.k.
9:12 pm
said that those who would immediately occupied the hong kong parliament earlier this week should actually be condemned as more break it is that was also following beijing accusing jeremy hunt the foreign secretary of having colonial era delusions that some of this into what the spokesperson for the chinese foreign ministry had to say seems that he still indulged in the post illusion of british colonists and this persisting with the bad habits of condescending in pointing fingers at other countries internal affairs. well they also went on to say it's hypocritical of the u.k. to talk about democracy in the home calling it issues with a given that when the phone call was that british call in the very long time they were in a lecture held that jeremy hunt the foreign secretary gave this response to that. message to chinese government good relations between countries
9:13 pm
a based on mutual respect and on ring the legally binding agreements between them that is the best way to preserve the great relationship that when the u.k. and china is talking about the reference that to the one country 2 systems agreements that was something that was signed when hong kong was handed back to the chinese and it gives the i am going to move freedoms such as economic freedoms but what we're seeing at the moment is tensions between the u.k. and china are ratcheting up over those protests former u.s. diplomat jim just told us hunt's comment on the hong kong protests could be seen as hypocritical there's an element of wounded sovereignty with the british criticism that the chinese want to make it clear this is sovereign chinese territory yes there are straighter rules they are special to hong kong but is the form of the former colonial power i can't help but notice that we're not just talking about protesting we're talking and going in and seeing zinging by force by mob violence

9:16 pm
for. the overjoyed. with the stress. of constant. court. to win over. all those 9 years of 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. 12 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 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 in belmarsh prison in

9:18 pm
become commission president o'sullivan's alone is unacceptable as 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 suit some heads of government leaders have also put forward a new head of the e.u. council who will take over from donald tusk they've opted for belgian prime minister charles michel however this also didn't sit well with many in the european parliament for accept. r t m e p's are particularly angry as michelle and me marks britain's departure from knock commenting on fundamental nomination as european commission chief german m.e.p. maximillian crocker told us his country woman has a track record of failure. all established parties promised only send qualified pretty politicians. and what they are now doing is
9:19 pm
a big if. the most important position in the 2 minister who failed in germany and who needs just a position to get her out of fire in domestic politics in every position she hold in germany she failed and i do believe that she will succeed when they get when she gets an even tougher and even more important and more difficult position she got her offices in germany because she is very connected into the party establishment of a good americans 1st from democrat union she's just a typical politician out of the system without having any record of successes. the u.s. government is now threatening to impose new types not only on the chinese rivals but on their friends to europe paying good totaling $4000000000.00 are facing additional levies from across the ocean the authors of the u.s. trade representative is issued a public comment supplemental list of products that could potentially be subject to

9:24 pm
a shoe company for god's sake just a little earlier nike had to get rid of another collection intended for china this time the problem was that the designer brand behind the shoe look had shown support for hong kong protesters online hell yeah these political subtleties do matter better not play with fire nike bosses thought you'd think this lady though wouldn't really look back and what problems so one far away had with her ideas think it is me. not see you need one. ok even kim carr dashi and i had to tweak the name of her lingerie line up she originally called comodo kim oh get it but the japanese got furious with this wordplay mrs cardassian west even got an official letter from the mayor of a city in japan asking her to mind her branding language back to sports where the

9:26 pm
everyone's feelings but aren't the offended going a bit too far a bit too often. students at a u.k. secondary school have started a petition after they were banned from wearing scarves in a bid to promote gender neutrality under the new role all pupils at appleton academy in more than england will have to wear trousers 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 and says 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 the majority of secondary schools it simplifies the uniform and it removes the issue of pupils wearing skirts that are inappropriate the majority of parents have
9:27 pm
responded with positive feedback and are supportive of the change and understand the reasons for its school uniforms they signify when the ship of a body a group of people and usually you know there's a decision about what color what what 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 is to help they all g.b.t. community but actually i think it's going to be counterproductive because many girls will see your skirt is 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
9:28 pm
form of identity theft and it's going to make life probably more difficult for the algae 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 of 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 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
9:29 pm
a lot of children who are who are not part of the algae community they will be 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 l.g.b. to 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 the other side of this debate would agree with me you know we help the algae bt community by promoting tolerance of inclusion tolerance of the girls of the community so we've got to be fair to both sides one over the other give freedom to the girls too. and finally 2 men one woman has died after an accident during an annual independence thing fireworks in the better russian capital. a

couple of rockets reportedly exploded on the ground breaking the windows of cars and nearby buildings there is no information about why the rockets malfunctioned local media says a 64 year old woman was struck in the head and died after doctors were unable to stop the bleeding there is so far no official reports about other casualties from it and. that's how the news is looking this hour i'll be back in 30 minutes the latest but don't go anywhere because up next it's going underground. afshin rattansi we're going underground now is after israel did what u.k. pm contenders boris johnson and jeremy hunt have advocated before it bomb syria coming up on the show why is the british government destroying in hiding documents essential to the judy of the sonship.
