depend on him and what happens in court. shocked shocked as far as society we feel. we don't know she'll share this truthful. end of this trial unfortunately you truly will still love no children. in the stories that shaped the week here in our city tensions escalate in the gold for the u.s. sending troops to saudi arabia and imposing new sanctions on iran over terrans alleged attack on an oil facility. also if we go to hong
kong these are live pictures from there where the beijing protests continued for a 4th consecutive put. on deadlock in israel after a 2nd election failed to give any side of majority to form a government but prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his main rival flying to lead any coalition plus thousands of children as young as 5 being held without charge in crimes the tension centers in nigeria human rights watch says the arrests were made as part of an anti terror crackdown. he described severely overcrowded cells with 250 or 300 teens packed into my cell i was 10 meters by 10 meters. so i welcome just want to call carry moscow you watching weekly head on r.t. international now the right. the president says he wants gulf nations to work
together to provide security in the region comes after his country standoff with the u.s. intensified this week washington accused iran of being behind a drone attack on an oil refinery in saudi arabia and made this pledge of support to riyadh the president has approved the deployment of u.s. forces which will be defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense we will also work to accelerate the delivery of military equipment to the kingdom of saudi arabia and the u.a.e. to enhance their ability to defend themselves it is clear that even the saudis themselves don't believe the fiction of the rain involvement however the drone or missile attacks were claimed by rebels in yemen on friday saudi forces launched several airstrikes near the yemeni port city of who died and the saudi coalition spokesperson said the goal was to prevent who the rebels from launching remote controlled assaults on shipping in the red sea yet the saudis in the us still blame
iran for the attack on the oil facility. as. it is being decided that iran did it and that started opinion will find it will the result of an investigation that's a decision guilty secretary do you gather any new evidence that shows who is behind the attacks and do you think you have a slam dunk case to bring to the u.n. next week. i think it's abundantly clear and there is an enormous consensus in the region that we know precisely who conducted these attacks was iran i didn't hear anybody in the region who doubted that for a single month. rob is doing what trump does best signing pieces of paper bringing to bear a slew of new sanctions against iran but these are the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country never done it to this level. and it's too bad what's happening with iran
it's going to hell the americans who weren't attacked of already decided what happened then who is guilty the saudis who were attacked and have all the day bree and bits and pieces of the missiles are still working on technicalities like evidence and proof let that sink in. the attack did not originate from yemen the attack was launched from the move and was unquestionably sponsored by iran it's not in the range of yemen's capability if it was them who conducted the attack this is one of the missiles we have recovered and we have information that leads us to the source of these kind of components were made in iran. so what they found is the weapons were allegedly made with iranian components they were fired from the north in the direction of iran and its neighbors so cutting to the chase it was iran that's what you're going to say right not once during the
presentation that the saudis specifically say that iran did it 1 may ask what on earth saudi defenses were doing at the time they've got the 3rd biggest military budgets on earth one of america's best clients the countries livid with patriot and other anti missile systems $80000000000.00. a year should protect you from a score of drones and missiles no the only thing that might be iranian related is that maybe some of the equipment some of the technology that the who these have might have been incorporated into the attack but why why or why is anyone complaining especially the saudis since the u.s. has been providing the bombs and the aircraft to the saudis to bomb yemen for 4 years so the who with these are just responding back then again to those saying
it's iran because there are alleged iranian components in the day bri does that mean that the us is responsible for horrific massacres in yemen i mean sure saudi arabia dropped the bombs but those say made in the united states more likely than not the arabia has been clearing the shelves of american arms manufacturers recently by this logic there's no need to investigate to collect evidence it's american bombs it has got to be america. and. an entire country reduced to misery and pain untold thousands dead more to die but you know what it's the oil refinery in saudi arabia the book was
vengeance. ok now an anti beijing activists in hong kong have staged another protest of the some live pictures from there the semi autonomous chinese cities in the grip of the 60 consecutive weekend of demonstrations and unrest the protesters have been waving american flags today and also stamping on chinese ones while on sasa. police in the city did take gas and rubber bullets while rioters threw molotov cocktails and started fires on the streets. and tuesday. meanwhile on tuesday
a leading name in hong kong protests movement of people to u.s. lawmakers in congress joshua one wants them to pass a bill that would see greater u.s. support for hong kong hong kong special status under american law that bans on the city being treated as a separate customs area beijing should not have it both ways wrapping all the economy benefit of hong kong standing in the world while erosion of our freedom there is the most important reason why the hong kong human rights and democracy act and just the bought some throws off hong kong civil society wong is a prominent student activist who organizes protests against the chinese government in support of hong kong's independence the 22 year old is also a leader of the pro-democracy party deceased oh he's already served several jail terms 2 for his activities where your sudan of now explains why one's planned for us the provision over hong kong could actually backfire. they are many they've won
the fight with the authorities by early submission but they are anything but done the american flag waving taskforce among the hong kong protesters are sending their poster boy to convince us legislators to do something big on autonomy. well for those of you having difficulty making out the essence of this boilerplate script it's that human rights and democracy act and it's meant to show beijing that the u.s. is serious about fighting for hong kong's rights the united states must make clear to china that its interference in hong kong's affairs will have consequences this month we must pass a bike cameron bipartisan on consumer rights and democracy act the bill was devised in response to what the u.s. has been calling
a chinese infringement on the region's autonomy and requires for america to review own homes special status annually and if that status is ever revoked the region's autonomy would not so much be infringed but rather new to dust since the early ninety's hong kong has been enjoying huge advantages for wearing washington's special status badge. and some believe that a small yet vocal group of protesters is laying an explosive tripwire for the whole region which will not enjoy the konami chain reaction if it's ever triggered in a way that is the villages. signal of the ready biggest economy in the world.
and see that it will always just ordered. well it was going to hold a great deal but it's not just the whole poly there are all the thousands of you notice this don't believe in all of it would likewise be affected of course it's a political war because. it calls only or percent of charlus economy previously ringback stated goal of the deal years ago in the apparel to all mall as far as equality is also. but low is always sent but on the other hand of course we law i would wish the one currently this is the sea so as to help trial with the internationalization the religion with. all american legislators say the bill is designed to punish mainland china specifically as protesters want sean not to but while the end goal may very well be punishing beijing in pursuit of
a geo political supremacy washington my just overlook the collateral damage. now the israeli president is intervening to break the deadlock over forming a new government initiated 2 days of crunch talks with the prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his main rival benny gantz both are vying to head a coalition after snap elections failed to return a majority. according to the election commission we have received $33.00 seats and netanyahu did not shoot the bloc that he had hoped to achieve citizens of israel wanted a unity government even after previous elections and they want it now i was talking about it almost for the whole year i intend to create it why unity government with me is the leader. i was surprised and disappointed by the fact that as of now benny gantz still refuses my call to meet the president called for unity and without a meeting between the 2 major party leaders a unity government cannot be formed when israel does face the prospect of
a 3rd round of elections in less than a year if no agreement between the blocs can be reached kansas center left blue and white alliance $133.00 seats while netanyahu center right could party was just behind them and then a bloc of arab alliance parties known as joint list came 3rd gaining 5 more seats than in the previous election or that blocked as possess a major threat or does pose a major threat to netanyahu party as it could enter into coalition with dances alliance arab voter turnout was high at around 59 percent and it's thought that that was spurred in part by netanyahu is inflammatory remarks about arab districts and their potential for voter fraud. or commentator for israel today says a coalition involving the arabs would still be difficult to form. probably once unification between the 2 main blocs they want unification and the numbers
speaks for us else for the. party you know it is sensitive to say that any of the 2 blocs mainly the good begun sprog the red white block can adopt them because they object to anything called zionism is a very real and they support to do surely the palestinian terrorist organization it's hard to be allied with such a bloc they cannot be adopted this part of legitimate government because they are all gypsy everything we do in the area they are black with trying to blackmail to go to government so it's very hard to predict what is about to happen in the new near future still to come in the way they identity crisis facebook now claims it is a publisher not just the platform in a legal case which could have a major impact on what is posted on the site and explain more just after the fact.
join me every 1st week on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy one from day shouldn't let it be an arms race is often steering dramatic developments only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. tensions between the masses and classes have existed ever since modern states came
into being but often serve as a driver of political change with russian civil society growing larger and louder against the excesses of the government leaks what does the future of the political system look like. again welcome back now an ongoing crackdown on terrorists in nigeria has seen thousands of children being detained that's according to a new report by human rights watch we spoke to one of the researches behind the publication. since 2013 nigeria has detained about 3600 children and in june human rights watch went to the northeast of nigeria where boko haram its most active and we interviewed more than 30 children who had been
detained the vast majority of these children were never charged with a crime in fact they were never taken to court never had the opportunity to see a judge the children were denied contact with their families and held in or a book shins they described so little space that they couldn't turn over at night they were you know pile one next to the other they described it like the razor blades packed many of them something began losing hope that they would ever be released some thought that they would die in detention or children as young as 5 were reportedly held in overcrowded military detention facilities on little or no evidence and they spent months or even years there with that charge with reports too of sexual physical and mental abuse and also as we heard extreme overcrowding the children have been accused of involvement with the arms terrorist group boko haram where the radical islamist organization is based in northeastern nigeria it
does carry out suicide attacks as well as assaults throughout west africa in 2015 walk ahead of them pledged allegiance to islamic states and many of the imprisoned children were rounded up by nigerian authorities during military operations against the terrorists. they are smee if i was a member of booker and beat me up when i said no they tied my hands and legs and hung me to a tree and continue to flow camy they flogged me and left me tied to the tree from morning till evening one person from my village was killed during the interrogation if you make a noise if you drink water without asking them if you go toward the door to get fresh air they beat you. the soldiers had girlfriends one of the girls from our village was a girl friend of a soldier she would usually take her out of the compound some ladies got pregnant in the cell and delivered while i was there. while the nigerian authorities have
released over 2000 children from the tension since 2013 nearly all of them had been held without charge jo becker again says the government should make more of an effort to release the children still being helped. nobody knows the current number of children who may still be in military custody nigerian authorities do not allow the night or independent organizations like human rights watch to access the military detention centers but what human rights watch is calling for is that nigerian authorities release any remaining children in military detention and transfer them to civilian protection authorities so that they can receive rehabilitation help or unifying with their families and reintegrating into their communities in response the nigerian military does deny the allegations that were made against it in the report saying the children are kept in secure areas and are
adequately cared for we asked the nigerian ministry of justice to for comment although it so far we haven't had a reply. now the social media giant facebook is apparently undergoing an identity crisis that's because it's changed the way to scribes itself from a platform to a publisher and that could have some. important ramifications well in a recent legal case facebook claimed it was a publisher insisting it has the right to ban who it wants but that would also make it liable for what goes out on the platform responsibility is previously tried to dodge. as more. so why don't we go out here. that's better. plaintive ultra right activist laura loom or who was taken off pretty much all major online platforms defendant facebook one of the giants which kicked her out we carefully flicked through these court papers which the defendant
filed to try and bury the lawsuit and here's what really caught the eye. to the extent miss lewis claimed targets facebook's decision to deactivate her accounts it is also deficient on the well established law need to facebook know any of the publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else's message 1st amendment provides absolute protection for such decisions what was it again either facebook nor any other publisher protection by the 1st amendment so in this particular case the lawyers of sucking co are happy to legally refer to their social network as up publisher digging a bit deeper will reveal facebook has done that in the past as well when last year and app startup was crossing swords with facebook in court this is what came from the network spent the publisher discretion is a 3 speechwriter respective what technological means is used so is it just me or
something's wrong with how the platform we use every day identifies itself because when facebook bosses take questions in other places it seems they always try to distance themselves from the notion publisher which are you are you a tech company or are you the world's largest publisher because i think that goes to a really important question on what form of regulation or government action if any we would take senator this is. a really big question i view us as a tech company because the primary thing that we do is build technology and products as your response if you're content which made exactly on of a publisher. well i agree that we're responsible for the content but we don't produce the content and that's been the message for quite a while. we are a tech company not a media company. i do think we have to be the publisher and we definitely don't
want to be the arbiter of the truth now just imagine what kind of legal trouble the tech giant may put itself in if it becomes universally recognized the company mr zuckerberg is running is a publisher not just a tech platform are they really ready to be responsible for anything disturbing or outright criminal that gets posted under the blue logo the examples have been out there in abundance. the way or what if simply someone decides to lawyer and bully me with all kinds of offensive stuff right on facebook should i then also follow defamation suit against the network because they as a publisher alloted it's well known you can't have a cake and eat it at the same time or probably unless your last name is sucker bird
i was in the prank of reporting there we did ask facebook to comment on this story and. we haven't had a response from them even more so the weekly here in r.t. could have a company move from us at the top of the. just manufacture consent in student of public wells. when the room in close is protect them so. when the fire. lifts and we don't want. to ignore middle of the room sick. the real news is.
thousands of american men and women choose to serve in the country's military decision little sheltered lives every song came to a complete. the day that i was raped. you know told to shut up but they'd kill me and i see how it destroyed my life any screamed at me and he made me come in and he grabbed my arm and he write me with his birthing kuria if you take into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military rape is a very very traumatizing tat happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished and be offended and almost 10 year career or chose very invested in and i gave a sex offender who was not even put to justice or put on the registry this is
simply an issue of tower and violence male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there to prey upon whether that's a man or woman. but if she warned you and i do. with issues. at the bottom or in those jeans new speech that she me we didn't you. know about that. in the news i mean that is where that information ball. a lot of. as it fights about who can teach us the most called. these. people gather what they've doing. in english to be a thing if and. she would include in.
hello and welcome to. the tensions between did masses and the classes have existed ever since more than states came into existence often serving as a driver of political change with the russian civil society growing larger and allowed there against the excesses of the governing elites how does it bode for the system as a whole to discuss that i'm now joined by constant to gaza on the resident scholar at the carnegie moscow center because that is good to talk to you thank you very
much for coming into the studio and for the invitation now as we are recording this program as i still take getting government buildings in moscow in support of populists in the us an actor who was detained during the election protests. and sentenced to 3 and a half years in prison for a legit violence against law enforcement a charge that is contradicted by video evidence which the court refused to consider now the conviction buys of the russian war system is nothing new but i think the bill is ation off russian society provoke is what strikes you the most about it i think the reaction though for a while because public opinion on the picture on for our coalition troops almost. like half of nation does prove in the same moment it was oh a huge focus on state control to be the protests isn't organic it's cosponsored
from the west and so on and so on but still half of the population said that they just don't like the picture of troops in the capital and i think there's a horse forced disproportional it was known that the court and that of course is sort of a. it's part of the social fabric in russia we well we're at each other for how far we have the court for how far the situation is or the quick and the use of force was absolutely none of it and i think apart from disapproving of the massive use of force. a lot of people in moscow and polls show that the majority of people in muskrat actually support it people's right to take to the streets which i think is also an interesting indicator i think one of the features that distinguishes the current protest away from the previous ones is that it's becoming increasingly mainstream it's not just the mostly intelligentsia on non-systemic opposition
anymore it's much more broad based actors journalists priests isn't actually a very good development that the russian society is finally becoming a subject rather than object of politics. if we can protest and shias in the one description. and grow this to mosco we'll see still that the picture is quite different because in serious it's more like one of my colleagues foreign journalists the most go characterize that as a green red or even green brown mating that this is actually the same social groups that support for example russian role in ukraine but they also care about the environment and in moscow for example it was pretty different picture it was yes it was not just what you call into intelligence it means old public noons those who have similar judicially critical of the those who control sort of symbolic capital like.
