8:14 pm
to me if i should speak up and keyboard used as a quotation mark and looked like a sloppy attempts by russian trolls to push stories i apologize for the mistake and explaining it in the interests of full transparency. france is a strict rules on religious displays have sparked another rally after a retirement home shut its doors at 2 an elderly catholic nun for wearing her habit reports now from paris. a nun from eastern france had been learning how to hold more than 70 if she didn't plan on changing that when she decided to cash in her retirement plan and move into a nursing home that didn't happen because the facility refused to provide her with it services because she in turn refused to take off her religious clothing and that
8:15 pm
hasn't gone well with the religious community here i do not see how a nuns veil can be described as offensive it is not a symbol of submission but the symbol of consecration but the nursing home says there will be no appeals the case is closed they say all religious apparel is banned at the facility to buy to buy friends is more than a century long reign of secularism a small chain with a cross that was the only bit of faith the nun was allowed to physically take with her into the home shedding the rest at the gates the nun refused the place we offered her and didn't want to accept the house rules that are the same for everyone within our homes our residents may have preferences and beliefs and they should be respected with regard to secularism all ostentatious religious symbols cannot be allowed in order to guarantee everyone's tranquillity. christianity is
8:16 pm
a relatively new phenomenon born out of france's strict secularism there's another one you might be moved from illegal with islamophobia the muslim community in france has been fighting for the right to wear their religious clothing in public for a long time. from the carbs to the workers to blue counties the muslims when we have women france has been through countless scandals around islamic clothing that christianity has been steering clear of this controversy until now. charles de mer president of the middle east aid group as a west christians of the east says france's immigration problem has raised tension over such issues. our country is beginning to forget isn't a christian country or. without cutlasses i'm friends with not exist a tall order to serve on his results in the political debate some are using it in
8:17 pm
order to buy an already just or agents from privileged debate forms of critics for and it's not a good way to deal with problems here in france the troubador always. arrive are often used in new como's is at that time to have some difficulties to adapt to the french curvature and you know we can understand them because if we present them to french culture as some sings that does not accept footage of a total it's not a good mother to assume it adds themselves to the french culture and their way to assimilate it was understand and see if everybody understands that the christian made this country now the trouble is immigration in france it's so that some are getting crazy and are ready to let our is tory go in order to abide by these are. those secularists viewpoints. still to come ukraine detains a 2nd isolator in a week will bring you the details of a short break stay with us. join

8:19 pm
are welcome back this is our team international now ukrainian authorities say they have detained a 2nd tire ranking islamic state leader in just 7 days breaking down the case and the security implications here. ukraine has revealed that it's arrested of russian citizen who was on interpol's wanted list and this happened on thursday injured told me which is a city in the northwest of the country and now let's just take a very quick listen to the exact reasons that were given for his arrest the man was wanted by interpol for murder according to the information we have the detained
8:20 pm
person was a member of the terrorist organization islamic state in fact one of its leaders who lived on the territory of ukraine to escape responsibility for the murder all the information that we are getting is coming from police authorities in the region where he was apprehended now they say that he is called oh we do not have his full name yet and that he is a 30 year old male from dagestan which is a republic bordering georgia in the north caucasus it's interesting because the head of the operation said that this particular arrest was part of a wider clear out of potentially dangerous individuals which by implication means that this is not a one off case and we can actually look to recent events for confirmation of that just last friday for example ukrainian authorities announced that they had detained a georgian national by the name of shiny now he was a top commander he fought alongside. in syria before escaping to
8:21 pm
ukraine via turkey last year and he actually continued to coordinate terror attacks from his house not far from here of his detention was part of a joint operation between ukraine georgia and the u.s. and it was following. the shawnees arrest the questions were raised how it was possible that a man who had allegedly held the role of isis deputy minister of war had managed to go unnoticed or at least untouched for such a significant period of time really right under their noses. some talks not just about inability to cope with this kind of high level terrorist but actually it's willingness to do so critics have drawn attention for example to how. inefficiencies within the ukrainian government which facilitate these kinds of dangerous individuals to slip through the net they drew the attention for example
8:22 pm
of to the holes in the legal system and law enforcement to a very low the fake passport trade as one of course unfortunate to corruption which is an endemic problem in the country and which of course allows for systematic abuses of power just as a final point it's worth noting that this is not just an issue of concern for ukraine but also for its neighbors as we know since 2017 ukraine has enjoyed visa free travel regime with e.u. countries so if it continues to apparently offer an undisturbed refuge for such people it could potentially be exploited as an ideal stepping stone for those who want to harm european nations so clearly a warring and significant issue but this latest arrest hopefully a step in the right direction towards tackling the border problem. the former head of the u.k. that counterterrorism security officer chris phillips says i saw has never stopped
8:23 pm
planning attacks on the west despite their defeat in syria. but only gets only ukraine that i've got a problem with this i think other countries as well and of course if you have free movement across borders anywhere then you're leaving an open door for terrorists and criminals that operate this round was a very senior person who knows this but there are many others that have also managed to escape the battlefield and go back to their countries so this is a worldwide problem obviously he's managed a movie they managed to claim that he was being killed so the the or thirty's were on the back foot so it's really concerning it will be interesting to know where he has gone who he's been communicating with whether or not they've been set you know . cells of terrorists dotted around europe and across the world to bring this about they know they never this is the end of ice it's this this latest battle in syria is not the end of us they consider it part will go to war in
8:24 pm
a war that they're going to bring to us i think in the in the coming years ahead. the u.k. has defied a u.n. deadline to give back an overseas territory term russia's the prime minister of the indian ocean island says london's failure to hand over the course islands makes britain an illegal colonial occupier and by an overwhelming majority the un general assembly voted in may to give the u.k. 6 months to return the islands put but britain insists the vote is non-binding despite it being backed by a un high court ruling. which the international court of justice found. to be. of the territory. said today.
8:25 pm
to give up the change. agreed to the move in exchange for benefits. needed for. maintains a military base their. groups are divided on whether britain. we want to remain
8:26 pm
a british overseas territory and we want to be resettled in the whole in our search we want these cond these islands to belong to us we are natives of these islands this is our right and this is our homeland and we don't want it to be given to another state our people want to be resettled 1st then we will make a decision a home we want to be governed by and in future we of course we would want to become an independent country where as far as of your concern right now we want to remain a british overseas territory we need to put pressure on them. you can't govern man just deal what he will do for us we have been fighting back in fact think for a long time 50 years have passed why did you get government did nothing we need to find we need to stick if we need to bring them to the court martial of government
8:27 pm
he's fighting for this to their end did you case back in or still feel the same god we can't concern we want our rights because our right has been nice we want our country back we don't know which we have who we've called it will be but we would like our country that. does a female back of the top the hour with more news this is r.t. international. tough and i mean i'm of the entire system i found a way to go through a suit because danica itself mukti about. 2 hours in this way got to talk so hard not to think of the mother disappeared this moment the work of a coward and an optimist all right then if. this is the only thing that we do is
8:28 pm
music because everybody fights in his room waiting. on. the floor and you can feel the fee was out of this bill frist would have been called the ability to get the death penalty. but i think it is this is the fans that is the constant. thought. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to. have to go on to be the person this is what the 43 of them or 10 people that i'm interested in always
