10:02 am
they point to thirty year old guy you see all of us from dagestan a career jihad it as the suicide bomber in the case and then three men also involved one dimitri sokol love who is her reported husband was on his way to moscow and then two men waiting for them there from dagestan both of them wanted for twin terrorist attacks in dagestan back in two thousand and twelve so police are on the hunt for those three men at this point reports say that she got on the bus shortly after that is when the explosion took place shop will t.n.t. and a grenade remnants were found at the site which six dead and more than forty injured many of them very severely local hospital inundated with very graphic wounds witnesses say that there were severed limbs and severe birds many of those cases were said to moscow for further treatment i we've got an eyewitness we spoke to who came upon the situation just moments after here's what he's got to say about what
10:03 am
happened to her and from there were many ambulances and police around people getting out from the coast to help they were pulling people out of the bus giving them water sharing their first aid kits what shocks me is that there was one woman still inside the bus satchel covered in blood and i couldn't tell whether she was dead or like the bus route starts at the city's heart center also pulses near the university so the bus was full of hope patients and students also a large bomb was found near a shopping mall in dagestan by anti terror police and what they're really trying to piece together right now is why this bombing took place here involve the grad but not as it was originally planned in bosco also last night and islamic prayer center was firebombed here in volgograd so investigators are looking at that as well so there are many pieces to this puzzle that finally need to come together before we get a clear picture of how. this was carried out and why it was done. and also discuss
10:04 am
the issue of terror threats with alexander don't worry and i heard the dr low and a visiting lecturer at several u.s. universities and he told us terrorism is no longer a regional matter but an international concern. i can tell you that you know we are dealing with this kind of a terrorist international we cannot divide what's happening in america in boston or in a global masoud in then you know to five well we cannot separate it from what has just happened in volgograd or from what happened in they'd all be just several weeks ago we were seen boat and this is where unfortunate and we need to deal with it this is something you know about happens on the kind of irregular basis this is not the first time this is not the last time but once again we're in the same boat and unlike just several years that you had with school and you know with expression one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter i can see now that no matter
10:05 am
what if somebody had to do it to russia and the russian government would have a terrorist attacks in russia this is a terrorist attack not just against the russian people it's against this is a terrorist attack against everybody and our website in ways collating all the latest for you on the terror attack involve the bride extensive fund ground information eyewitness reports pictures and footage go to our home. and our parole in front of the revelations the n.s.a. has spied on millions of its citizens has forced washington to make one with strongest admissions yet regarding its surveillance practices after a further conversation between barack obama and president francois hollande. latest claims raise legitimate questions and just a single month the agency automatically intercepted more than seventy million calls while also logging text messages along with the general public
10:06 am
a businessman and politicians were also targeted this prompted president or line to join the calls of those urging tougher previously laws in the european union lawmakers have already new legislation to protect online information which would outlaw most data transfers to third countries including the u.s. and to discuss this further we can now go live to paris to talk to the re now and french politician dominique de who serve the country as prime prime interior and foreign minister of. the sun welcome to r.t. it's an honor to have you with us let's start with the fallout from the n.s.a. scandal that affected france french ministers have called the revelations shocking how surprised were you personally to find out of the u.s. government was snooping on millions of french citizens. well we knew that. some practices were existed but the search
10:07 am
and overall system this came as a surprise for everybody the importance of the spying into the private lives seems so big that it really looks something acceptable between friends between allies and i think that it is very important now to find a way to change the system because there is no argument no reason that can be given to explain to the thing of course fighting against terrorism is very important and we should try to find corporation financial corporation intelligence cooperation but spying on the private life of citizens this is something we cannot accept but does france really have the right to complain here when the limo and claimed in july that big government the french government has amassed spying program oh and
10:08 am
and the obama administration said everyone is up to it. well i believe we should not mix the subject that every country might use intelligence in order to counter terrorism that's of course something that one can explain but to have such an extensive program going into private lives going into using internet using a program like prism program which is the one that the u.s. had been using this is something which is of so great importance that it cannot be accepted in fact what we are seeing today is the incredible privileges of the u.s. administration over the control of the world system we knew that the u.s. were controlling the financial system through the banking dominance of some big banks through the dollar currency reserve currency through the control of risk
10:09 am
for example the three most important rating agencies in the world but controlling internet controlling the information you know well this is a privilege a monopoly that cannot be accepted and i think it's very important while the power is changing hands we are seeing today that the hyper power of the u.s. is no longer any more reality we must go from a spirit of confrontation and spying that the world the one we have seen to corporation and i think it's very important that the whole world community comes together and put things. on the table and soothe discussions through cooperation we find a way to control the system in a cooperative way in the interest of the whole world for example the internet should be control not only by the us by by the whole world community the same for
10:10 am
culture we see them on a police to day of a country like hollywood. by the us such model. police are not acceptable in the world because we know that if we are going to follow up in the same direction then confrontation might be the we need cooperation and we need to look at all the areas where we have such privileges in order to create a spirit of cooperation from so long says he will now push for new e.u. data protection legislation why did we not hear similar calls earlier when other e.u. countries like germany for example fell victim to surveillance while our eyes think there is a lot of surprise coming out of all this i do remember when this story came out in july. i was in china and i came out very strongly against this
10:11 am
information saying that we could not accept such a thing i think france and the french government the french president where we need to have more information and now we are really seeing big spent of the spying on the world on spying on private lives spying on france and many other countries and now that we know the extent we really all realize the necessity for taking a strong corporative action and changing this overall system of course we cannot accept again the reasonable reason that can be put forward to justify such techniques terrorism cannot just be five search techniques we see that the system goes far belong far beyond the directive of fighting against terrorism and bronco bamma has now of course said the u.s. will review its intelligence gathering practices why did it have to take damning exposé use and the outrage of
10:12 am
a close washington ally like france to start reconsidering its methods. i believe that for many people in the u.s. this was normal and they keep saying that all this is legal that the u.s. has the right abroad to utilize such techniques and i think that's part of the exception that the u.s. do feel but power doesn't all who or only give. the possibility of using power of course the u.s. because of their power they have a real responsibility in the world governance but they have to take this responsibility for good in the interest general interest of the world when we see that they are using such responsibilities in their all national interest then we can see that there is a competition between world interests and national interest and that's why i believe it's very important to change the world governance we need
10:13 am
a security council in the u.n. that can't go much further in implementing the world into us we need an economy security council that can change the financial and economic order we see that giving to just one country the capacity to control and to monitor world information world culture world financial regulation this is not in the interest of many of the humanity and we should correct this and it's very important now that corporations through dialogue all the countries of the world get together and try to find ways to monitor to control because we see that this excesses these are practices are not acceptable for democracies and for the world interest. domenic pant france's former prime minister foreign and interior minister live from
10:14 am
paris this year double pan thank you very much indeed for your time and your insight we appreciate it. thank you so much. are many of the deaths in the u.s. drone strikes in pakistan are unlawful and amounts to war crimes claims amnesty international and new damning report released today looks at recent incidents and five examples of the killing of children and their elderly the human rights organization wants justice for the victims of unlawful strikes and calls for greater transparency and a thorough investigation and that could be a lot to look at right now and it all began in two thousand and four when president bush was in office two thousand and six was the deadliest year in his presidency one almost a hundred civilians were killed just by two strikes two years later drones became
10:15 am
much more frequently used and then barack obama became president in two thousand and nine and that was the year which saw the biggest number of killings that was one hundred and sixty two in the next twelve months these strikes almost doubled and there were more than one hundred of them and the program goes on as we can see here the latest attack in pakistan happened just over a month ago so the lion's share of drone strikes were carried out by the obama administration around a thousand people have been killed most of them civilians including two hundred children a big total number of deaths is more than three thousand people more details now from account. the predator drone remotely controlled and heavily armed it's the weapon of choice in the cia's undeclared war in pakistan that's where the u.s. is believed to have launched more than three hundred strikes since two thousand and four the target suspected taliban and al qaeda militants the white house says
10:16 am
better drones then boots on the ground and justifies the covert program as both affective and legal america does not take strikes to punish individuals we act against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the american people not so according to amnesty international in a damning new report the human rights group warns u.s. drone strikes could amount to war crimes documents recent killings in pakistan's northwest tribal areas and the lack of transparency surrounding drones this is a secret program in fact in our case we've found at least in some cases they've clearly killed civilians in some of these cases might be war crimes that really concerns us one such case is that of sixty eight year old man nama bibi killed by a u.s. drone last october she was picking vegetables with her grandchildren when that attacks took place a double strike the children miraculously survived. first it was so then i heard
10:17 am
that. the first hit and the second hit my cousin. but her grandmother's body was pulverized these missile fragments are all that remain of amnesty documents other such cases but its main point the need for transparency and accountability the u.s. must explain why these people have been killed people who are clearly civilians must provide justice to these people compensation it must investigate those responsible for those killings the u.s. continues to give very little public information about the drone program but it will face more international pressure later this week that is because on friday the u.n. general assembly will be done. bating the use of remotely piloted aircraft now in a separate report a un investigation looked at thirty three drone strikes around the world not just in pakistan that violated international humanitarian law and also resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties that report also calling for more transparency and

descent that they came to norway in the year two thousand they weren't particularly religious that in fact it over the last few weeks they've been arguments between the the older sister and the mother of the family over the older sisters want to wear the niqab so norwegian authorities looking into this to try and track down these two women who are believed to be in turkey trying to cross the border into syria they say they have evidence that they've been spotted in that area security offices working with the norwegian security services are saying that we are seeing a growing trend in organized groups trying to to recruit and radicalize muslims muslim people in the in the west in europe and across europe we have seen cases where by anti assad fighters have turned up with with passports from across the european union norway itself believes that around forty of its citizens are currently fighting in the area one of the largest groups from europe that's made their way to fight against assad troops have been from right here in germany it's

now will find. massive bushfires in the state of new south wales out of the hole to september on record officials have already issued a state of emergency and say that high winds and soaring temperatures will make matters worse in the coming days so the blazes have killed at least one person and damaged more than two hundred homes. and now finding love against the odds coming up next it sound documentary about two very different individuals whose love is simply unbreakable. it seems like politicians can get away with anything nowadays but not all of them the former mayor of field detroit has been sentenced to twenty years of prison after being found guilty of committing rocketeer conspiracy fraud extortion and tax
10:28 am
crimes while the mayor the prosecutor say he funneled millions of dollars to himself and family members all while detroit moved headstrong towards the bankrupt state it is in today this is big news not because some mayor took bribes but because he got punished the judge who could fix them stated why this is such an important case she said at the very least a significant sense will send a message that this kind of conduct will not be tolerated. yes sending a message you see corrupt officials are usually cowards and they do what they do because they feel they can get away with it when you start to put the fear of god into them they start to behave much better so the question is will the mainstream media grab the story and really use the conviction of detroit's former mayor as an example probably not but it would really help the country if they would but that's just my opinion. to the. bend over. that says so each one
