the u.s. government allows immigration services to use fake social media accounts to monitor people seeking to enter the country also this hour. i. feel time that if the germany party celebrates 2 of its best local election results yet the anti immigration you are skeptics coming 2nd in both brandenburg and saxony. after 2 days of vigils and commemorations of the most deadly terror attack in more than russian history we speak to survivors and relatives of the victims. and iran's foreign minister tells our team why it's vital to save the nuclear deal and stop the us breaking international law. must not give up and close up the united states for breaking
international law. and that it serves to read not stop people. you're watching international i'm rosana loquitur thank you for joining us. the u.s. government has authorized migration officials to use fake social media accounts to monitor people seeking to enter the country this is spite efforts to purge online networks of false profiles as donald 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 officers may you. 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 usage terms of both facebook and twitter it is against their policies to use fake persona and to use twitter data 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. 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 e.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 ward unaided 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 we're 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 2019 alone with 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 applaud the diligence some of your security teams credit you with taking the problem very seriously 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 whistleblower and former cia officer john kiriakou says the new policies could prove damaging to social media companies this is an old trick used by local police departments to infiltrate protest groups to see what opponents of the police are doing. it's something that's been adopted now as a harassment technique by immigration services here this is american exceptionalism isn't it it's ok for the united states because we're the good guys it's not ok for anybody else because they're not the good guys this catches up after a while and this is going to make friends and foes alike angry and think twice about u.s. policy especially as it comes to immigration i would point to platforms or organizations that are that are hosted overseas that are encrypted that are better
protected things like proton through example. that that the united states doesn't have to reach into there is no backdoor there is no secret handshake with the c.e.o. of the company and the cia or n.s.a. or f.b.i. i hope that people do get tired of this and look elsewhere outside of facebook and twitter and instagram for some personal protection. in other news the saudi alternative for germany party is celebrating a local election breakthrough the anti immigration movement came 2nd instinct elections and random but in fact any significantly increasing the influence in those paula months was a in those results with some of the best for the party since it was formed to just 60 i think a but the ruling christian democrats said they will not work with the f.t. peter all of the reports from berlin. starts off in brandenburg it was a win for the social democrats in
a campaign that they were neck in neck with the throughout 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 anger merkel's party 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 a sensational result we have achieved the best result in local elections avar and we can see that 30 years after the fall of the wall governments don't want to be left wing need the. us is i mean let me just see it is clear these 2 elections have had only one winner the dean we've seen from other politicians who have been looking at these results from alternative for germany and they're not happy about
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 no question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this resort alternative journey were founded as the anti euro euro skeptic party 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'd call them now. in both states have said they will not work with alternative for germany that means you're
probably looking at at least a 3 party coalition in both states a well quite convoluted 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 for germany have picked up in both the states of brandenburg and saxony here in germany. we got the views of by the left party and the f.t. on the results can be very powerful even money on a position and especially when you have a weak governments against you and what we see in sex on even just a most important east german federal state and there we have a christian democrat party that at least used to be quite conservative and i have greens that are a lefty for greens so now they have to to build a coalition or do they don't fit together at all so we've all have a weak government we've all seen the party members of both the greens and the
christian democrats are very on a happy about that so at a new government will be very unstable and we have a strong and we are together and united and when you are a strong opposition force and you have had a unstable government then you can kind of reach a lot so i guess it's a mistake that you have to be part of a government to change a country you can change it by good position by good media and by good arguments and add all this to tossed for us in the next years do you has an agenda and really that is based on it will centric nationalism militarism will elect a new liberalism as well as racism exclusion interest on 2 models success of the g.'s war you. also have the governments this happens on the fundamental of the last 30 years of german politics so 2 years of your liberalism is politics destroyed that human is fundament at least of the german society and the left.
didn't find the coup to really criticize the call to teach which is conducted in the moment consequently there is a problem and it's a problem as well to my mind. doing very well inside it and it grew from. to schools this which feeds the ideology of the year of jesus lawless that's their film. easy to have are you trying to change the local ities. today's vigils have been held marking 15 years since the beslan school massacre it was the deadliest terrorist attack in russia's history claiming the lives of 334 people mostly children a warning that you might find some of the following images upsetting.
on the 2nd day more than 20 hostages were released after the former president of russia's republic of in the land convinced a terrorist to let out women with babies we spoke to a girl who was one of the infants allowed to leave. if you had to stand by just because now you're. going to trust the doctor reform that what was going on yesterday it's now. is now it's done your job but people here were squashed on the come believe it or not us guys if you do it again. i wonder if squalls or emotionally pleasure. you got that you're shouted out in your disguise of it just don't push you. to just step on your persona on legend so for you.
would look at that. just post just so you. can use an echo that i'm spinning now condensed mature humor. opinion. written by then optimist i am about the given it. just acknowledged i do to chime don't. like to tune. in 1st watch and i took it up to look probably oh yeah it sure doesn't look like the show called mr smiley yet you could call him that he knew. right in. correspondent done a whole king's reports from the school where they trusted to place most hostages were kept in this room the sports hall best known as 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 be every year we come here to the school and the cemetery to the cemetery every month
even my sister in law is buried there with her 2 kids and it's always sad when vigils unite people in mourning what happened here is hard to forget it but life goes on it is. what's left of the whole unites everybody here police and soldiers who try to say if you could medics who run into the fire to evacuate the wounded parents and teachers who stayed. with their kids and pupils and the 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 they had a chance to escape many were to do hydrated and week to move hearing the experiences of those who were here is truly horrific as people inside began to faint doctors help to have
a she could the terrorists gave her notes with their demands to pass on to authorities they threatened to kill her son if she made a wrong move if stanley is the subsidy here. i said i'm a doctor so they took me to the corridor to give 1st aid to someone who wanted terrorists in the gymnasium it was very hard to breathe most of the kids were running a fever and painting they told the adults not to faint or they risk being 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 still to the north but all times of move. the blast wave knocked me and my brother back to one side an hour and to another
after the blast site opened my eyes and saw the special forces soldier screaming that anyone still alive get out of here that would raise my browser to the cloakroom and we heard the special forces soldiers say be careful where you fire your kids here and then we went out through the window sometimes we need 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 if you didn't one fact this committee be forgotten and can never be repeated i know hawkins r.t. . the ordeal lasted for 3 days
with people held without food or water choose de vaux the 3rd day of commemorations with local schoolchildren releasing balloons for the victims and we will bring you that coverage here on r.t. . now turning to some more of our headline news iran's foreign minister has said the country is ready to stop uranium enrichment within days or even hours if the e.u. proves its commitment to the international nuclear deal iran had announced plans to further reduce its compliance with the agreement starting this week to iran earlier raised its limits on uranium enrichment for mr zarif told r.t. why reaching agreement with the e.u. is key. not preaching anybody i'm simply talking about the realities you see all of us when we went to primary school and high school we had bullies in our class and
bullies would not stop if people just look at them why did beat another student wants to be the 1st student to go to the 2nd and the 3rd and the 4th do parents must know that the appetite of the united states for breaking international law when ever and where ever it serves them really not stop with j.c. pure as it has not are you on earth. unesco the climate change to be honest with you at the end of these not even in the interest of the united states in the long term if your have a long list international behavior you cannot have predictability one state being unpredictable will bring other states to the state of unpredictability and then we will have chaos so it's not in anybody's interest you will not have any rule of law respected if one country starts to break them basically as
a matter of habit. where you can watch that full interview on artie's worlds apart on tuesday or on our website r.t. dot com for. more than 100 people have been killed by a saudi led air strike on a detention center in yemen according to the red cross the aid group condemned the attack near the southwestern city of dam are as shocking the facility how some $170.00 people and medics have been dispatched to the scene of what is thought to be the deadliest strike on the country this year. the situation was very bad yes the 3 been there a few hours after the an airstrike brought me a whole lot leaner around being able to support around in hospitals around. 50 people have been. wounded people we can see 110 by armed and 10 people have been
killed. around 20 people missing. are also lying on the dropped all riyadh rejects the accusations and insists that it took all precautions to protect civilians the coalition also claims that the building was not a prison but a storage facility for drones and missiles this is a traditional who the tactic and a violation of the laws of armed conflict this site was not registered with the united nations and was not on the no strike list the south and i said let me tonight for all of the coalition warplanes work the residence in the war planes flew past and drop bombs directly at the building where 170 prisoners were in custody what you are seeing now is a real disaster scene it is a crime against humanity yemen's civil war pits rebel who theses against a multinational coalition led by riyadh 4 years of fighting has sparked the world's
worst humanitarian disaster and the head of the m. and delegation of the red cross says international law may have been broken. it believed in suburbia big nice big very big came east that we have been busy in footwear used times people would hand. in close contact with them so it was a place that was quite well known to be nice that they are protected by international humanitarian law when if you are a peg. by international humanitarian law the question of why you lesion of are you chose is really at the full ground to have a definite conclusion we need only need to get that on the stand what was the motivation what was the precautionary measures that were taken by the ball in order to be decent very tragic incident that has killed a very very high number of people. an explosion in the afghan capital kabul has killed at least 5 civilians according to local officials
and up to 50 others are injured monday night's blast destroyed several buildings in couple's green village compound which is home to international organizations the taliban has claimed responsibility and this happened just hours after the u.s. special envoy to afghanistan announced a draft peace deal with the militant group the plan was finalized after 9 rounds of talks another the agreement the pentagon would leave the country while militants would pledge to play no role in international terrorism political analyst shabbir razvi thinks the us president has a strong personal interest in making the deal work. this whole sort of so-called war on terror has been going on for 18 years and i think it should be correctly dubbed as war of terror taliban are really bidding to have more power and therefore they're flexing their muscle to show that they really are
forced to reckon with effectively the taliban has really run circles around the u.s. forces the ally is that it went into one of the stand or wait leave years ago and most of the other partners with us here have really withdrawn or not really effectively contributing anything it's really us a who has continues to have any presence and now that they're deciding that enough is enough with elections round the corner in the us in 2020 and perhaps mr trump also wants to sort of portray to his base that he is what he probably is that he doesn't want to have foreign adventures there for complete withdrawal from a one star and maybe in his favor for that particular purpose. pink floyd frontman werder waters performed his song wish you were here during
