through to a. good. girl so if you know if there's an interpreter go slow she can go. you're watching are to international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. the u.s. department of homeland security has authorized migration officials to use fake social media accounts to monitor people seeking to enter the country but that does fly in the face of efforts to purge online networks of false profiles a solid quarter explains. fake social media accounts the latest weapon in homeland security's arsenal the department's updated guidelines have officially made cyber disguises fair game for its agents the fraud detection and national security directorate is updating this privacy impact assessment to provide notice that
10:02 am
officers may use fictitious accounts or identities on social media platforms to protect national security public safety or to combat immigration fraud homeland security claims these fake accounts could be used to clean up the process of legal immigration detecting fraud finding weak spots and immigrations vetting system and conducting background checks are all listed as areas that could be improved and although communicating with other users is forbidden there's still one problem with the idea fake accounts used for surveillance violate the use its terms of both facebook and twitter it is against their policies to use fake persona and to use twitter down or for persistent surveillance of individuals who look forward to understanding u.s. c.i.s. proposed practices to determine whether they are consistent with the terms of service and might be against company policy but this isn't even a 1st for u.s. law enforcement earlier this year police stations the d.n.a.
10:03 am
and ice work s'posed all for using fake profiles isis facebook personas were even connected to a fake university created to entrap illegal immigrants looking to study their as they were exposed to facebook moved to delete those accounts. law enforcement authorities like everyone else are required to use their real names and facebook and we make this policy clear in our public facing law enforcement guidelines speech overrating fake accounts is not allowed and we swiftly act on any violating accounts but an internet privacy watchdog says the social media giant isn't doing enough facebook's practice of taking down these individual accounts when they learn about them from the press or from a f f is insufficient to deter what we believe is a much larger iceberg beneath the surface we often only discover the existence of law enforcement fake profiles months if not years after an investigation has concluded facebook no they obviously they don't care about anything they only care

about making more money and and blocking people who are doing good things i mean they abuse people's private information it's built into their system and they don't want to do anything about it until someone holds them to account so thankfully the guardian pointed this out and then they they blocked it but how many things did the guardian not see and there are just literally thousands and thousands of these things that are out there ordinated in authentic behavior is what facebook terms fake profile activity and since the 2016 election the company has been on an all out crusade against it i think to city matters because people need to trust that the content they are seeing is valid and they need to trust the connections they make or identifying and challenging 8 to 10000000 suspicious accounts every week we're also going to require people running large pages with large audiences the united states to go through an authorization process and confirm their identity over 2000000000 accounts were deleted in the 1st quarter of 29000 alone with
10:05 am
fingers pointed at russia 1st and then iran and china later on and all the while congress has been spurring on the assault your companies announced a series of successful disruptions. that resulted in the removal of pages groups and accounts my instinct is to apply the diligence of your security team to credit you with taking the problem. social media giants might find it easy to declare war on an authentic activity it thinks might be going on abroad but when they know that their own government is itself using underhanded tactics to advance its agenda who knows if the same standards will apply we've asked facebook and twitter for their reaction to the developments no comment as if it. will turn to for germany party or a.f.d. is celebrating the anti immigration euro skeptics came 2nd in state elections and brandenburg and saxony significantly increasing their influence on those
10:06 am
parliaments. it becomes one of the party's biggest victories harbor if the next steps are not clear the ruling christian democrats have already confirmed they won't work with the f.t. the outcome will become clear later this year as peter over reports. also fame brandenberg it was a win for the social democrats in a campaign that they were neck and neck with a if they threw out the alternative for germany picking up around 23 percent of the vote there with the social democrats winning on 25 percent in saxony we saw massive gains for alternative for germany it wasn't enough for them to win the state that went to the christian democratic union i'm glad merkel's policy but 2728 percent for alternative for germany in saxony could end up rising as high as 30 big gains for them there and that's what it is the sensational results we have achieved the
10:07 am
best result in local elections ever and we can see that 30 years after the full the wool governments don't want to be left wing need the. the fight is not over the fight starts now we've become much stronger and no one can remove us from germany politics any money will stay what we've seen from other politicians who have been looking at these results from alternative for germany and they're not happy about what's the role they've played in allowing a.f.d. to make such big games. i am happy that we have a really good result what worries me is a result in this means we continue to face big challenges in this country. we all hope for more and wished for more and i'm also disappointed like many others are disappointed and question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this result alters of the journey were founded as the anti euro euro skeptic policy
10:08 am
back in. 2013 but it was following the influx of refugees and migrants into germany in 2016 that they started to pick up a lot of points a lot of votes in the east of the country the big problem is going to come now is how they're going to form some form of coalition in these 2 states because the major parties the established parties i guess you could call them now both states have said they will not work with alternatives to germany that means you're probably looking at at least a 3 party coalition in both states a well quite confluences coalition a real broad church is going to have to be put in there because of the large chunk the large proportion of the votes that alternative to germany have picked up in both the states of brandenburg and saxony here in germany we're now joined live by jay jay political analyst and author and reiner office for more on this what are your thoughts about the election results were you surprised at all well i think no
10:09 am
one was surprised in germany and i think the elections are really important because the alternative for germany made history through those elections it's clear to state that at the alternatives for germany yes you're just state it's not up to her phenomenon like i wrote a party for example which just disappeared after one or 2 years they're trying to do for germany up to 40 percent in some regions in saxony up to 30 percent were these are among the highest results for parties that can be won in any part of germany so they are part of the political scenario and the mainstream parties should become used to this phenomenon and should start to try to collaborate in a constructive manner but we are still far from well from that well exactly the f.t. is clearly celebrating but can this be counted as
10:10 am
a success given that they're not going to join the ruling coalition anytime soon. well this is a go which is really hard to achieve for the i t f d to form a government because the other parties that this was being t. or in the in the past elections now will always join their forces together $224.00 germany in forming a government coalition and therefore even if the f.t. had won most of the seeds in the parliament they would not have most likely formed that the government because the parties would join together as we will see now because they get parties the c.d.u. would be s.p.d. they will not be able to form a government so that when brad bird and sex need to be expected now they have to governments with 3 parties so it will be a quiet hero. in stable governments and the question is how well that would show
10:11 am
that. these governments in the coming years and what will the future bring i think the tendency is that the alternative but germany will form governments but this may take another 234 or even 5 years what's the reason behind this ruling party is losing ground. well there are too many open questions in the political arena which have not the answer properly by those parties for example the migration issue has not been dealt with properly it's a topic which has only been tackled by they're trying to do for germany and for example c.d.u. and asked me who govern the federal level they have only up held migration pact of the united nations they have only defended their migration policy and has not really responded to all those. that dominate among large parts of the
10:12 am
population so i think it's their own fault because they want to follow their prefabricated model they just defend it and just try to defend themselves and their groups of power by stereotyping. being non-democratic as being right wing populist which is not really true because some of the political aspects that the energy for germany it goes for are even in the left sphere of the political spectrum and so it's just a discourse of war that is helped to defend the old parties against they're trying to use germany which is on the rice runner author to political analyst and consultant thank you for your time and your comments thank you. for a 2nd day a vigil for the victims of the most deadly terror attack in modern russia history
10:13 am
is being held $334.00 were killed mostly children during a scene in which more than 1000 people were taken hostage at a school in the north a cent in town of beslan warning you may find some of the following upsetting. most hostages were kept in this room the sports hall beslan is a small town a close knit community you'd be hard pressed to find anyone in this room that had lost someone or knew someone who had. good people would you be every year we come here to the school and the cemetery to the cemetery every month even with my sister in law is buried there with her 2 kids it's always sad when
10:14 am
vigils unite people in mourning what happened here is hard to forget it but life goes on it. what's left of the whole unites everybody here police and soldiers who try to save your kid medics who ran into the fire to evacuate the wounded parents and teachers who stained with their kids and people's hostages. the walls here were lined with flowers soft toys of course the photographs of those who died also bottles of drink symbolic as the terrorists had denied any food or water to the hostages for the 3 days of the siege but the time i had a chance to escape many were to dehydration and weak to move hearing the experiences of those who were here is truly horrific as people inside began to faint dr lisa moments of our help whoever she could the terrorists gave her notes
10:15 am
with their demands to pass on to authorities they threatened to kill her son if she made a wrong move if stanley is to softly as. i said i'm a doctor so they took me to the corridor to give 1st aid to someone who wanted terrorist. in the gymnasium it was very hard to breathe most of the kids were running a fever in thinking they told the adults not to faint or they receiving killed as a terrorist didn't want any burden i asked them to let me go and i had to carry a message for them they let me come to the school entrance they were holding my son saying if i went out of the door that killed both of us immediately. there is a story isn't the only miracle escape that day alina was 9 when she was seized along with her family she turned 10 the next day while still a hostage she sees her rescue as a 2nd birthday changing her life forever north but all times of move. the blast wave knocked me and my brother back to one side an hour and to another after
10:16 am
the blast so i opened my eyes and saw the special forces soldier screaming anyone still alive get out of here that was my browser to the cloakroom and we heard the special forces soldier say be careful where you fire your kids here and then we went out through the window sometimes when it was my classmates to visit the school for us there is life before and life after 15 years later for many the memories are as warm as ever. some come here seeking answers an explanation of how such a thing could have happened others simply light a candle and share an embrace to get some closure all you know i think in one fact this can never be forgotten and can never be repeated i know hawkins. the number of victims is so appalling that a separate memorial cemetery known as the city of angels was built we talked to

. trade war slows and global growth fans shaky afternoons on wall street have got financial outlets warning that a new recession or economic downturn could be on the horizon now that's bad news for everybody but for millenniums the generation of americans born between 198119068 could be fatal meet dakota lily he's a senior at new school university entering his final semester this fall once he finishes and graduates he'll be out on his own facing economic circumstances much harsher than previous generations of americans if you look at these problems the fact that it's impacting almost every millennial it's not just a question of someone else it's a you know country wide and even continent wide problem the conditions that our parents and our grandparents where they had good paying jobs right out of high school didn't even need to go to college go to traits whatever and have no student debt and still be able to support

a family it's just not the case anymore educational debt is a problem for millions of young americans adults ages $22.00 to $38.00 have double the amount of educational debt as gen x. ers the previous generation that came before this might be due to a 100 percent increase in the cost of college tuition despite the job market benefits of having a degree going down significantly also don't have much in terms of wealth and property net household worth is down 40 percent from the previous generation and 66 percent have no retirement savings less than 37 percent own stocks furthermore the median age of home buyers in the united states has actually risen to 46 because younger americans simply aren't taking out the mortgages and making the down payments people are working for wages people are underemployed people have bachelor's degrees and are working at mcdonald's putting weights on me before i even go out into the economy you know where it influences everything what kind of jobs you look for the job market you're looking into the wages that are being paid

you know it's a lot that you have to think about when you already had 20 to. $25000.00 worth of stuff. with really nothing tangible besides a plumber to show for it and his economic gap seems to also point to a widening political gap younger americans seem far more attracted to the left wing figures like bernie sanders and they pay a lot closer attention to issues like income inequality people just aren't making enough money people feel like they're not being represented if people can't get an education without spending enormous amounts of money they're going to vote for you know their interests you know republicans pick a share increase child care more infrastructure spending that will create jobs higher wages now donald trump says the fears about the economy are unfounded he's even said that the usa is having an economic miracle now all americans are nervous but one particular generation that never really recovered from the financial meltdown of 2008 they may not have very many houses cars or stocks but they've got
