a he was over the course of this demonstration this mosque this march managed to speak to some very very young people however people get rid of him in the gym tonight but there are people who have to sleep on the floor and. now i know everything and everybody people. have been lied to. for centuries decades or so about now it's about every minute that we've been lied to that our government has been lines was covering stuff up and we thought enough the broncos are on alonso's compresses the people of boston you got people killed as a result of their dreams someone should be able to count to the school for a month or two we have a government that's coming out of prime minister that came to the scene of the crime and you have the decency to meet resident ways the elements in swayze ways
4:03 am
the paper ways everyone that lived in nice flats ways all the tennessee equate ways that the nice still occupy is that need to know when i sat the anger on the protesters should by violence is a crime to say that the official response from being completely inadequate the many of the people. that he was on the food the building the gas the systems were put in the room in the stairwell so when those coal fire it was a death trap and nobody could escape also the fact that ten million dollars spent on cosmetic changes to the outside of the building to make it look that's all for rich presidents who live nearby and it was that external cladding which caused the fire to spread so quickly and take so many lives so these protests is very angry at the time and but this is going to be a transformative point in the history of this country and judging by the response of members of the public will combine in their cause beeping and supports that is a very good. popular course this horrible story coming so soon on the back of the
4:04 am
election it says everything that's wrong about our society this is one of the richest countries in the world one of the richest places in the world this bar in london is well and but this is an area where the poor people live and their lives essentially have been sold up the river based on this crazy ideology of deregulation it's worth noting the reason may when she went down to the fire to the site of the tragedy she talked to some fire offices but she didn't talk to any of the local people and i think the reason for that was that she knew that they would they would repent for the many catastrophic failings that have led to this and i think he's only strengthened the sense in the mind just that we must see the end of this government and see a transition to to a way of governing where we where we fix the priorities in terms of what we need to spend on and then work out how to how to provide the appropriate funding for those priorities and the other way around. is kevin i would hear
4:05 am
a good r t h q we're coming back to maybe four rounds of all the rest of the day's news this morning in just a bit but before that big day for russia in the world of football the biggest football event of the summer is set to kick off later today the fee for twenty seventeen confederations cup going to take place in four cities across the country let's get a handle on all this snow get the ball rolling across live to the protocol field day the team up there and award winning sports broadcaster well known guy started collymore as well in some petersburg bring us a special coverage of the told about that anymore a do over to you guys. what a spectacular view it is a beautiful sunny day when the venice of the north fantastic st petersburg she's artie's coverage of the twenty seven thousand confederations cup will be with you
4:06 am
throughout the entire two and a half weeks bring you pretty please and interviews and analysis and even action from the games alongside me throughout the tournament will be the superstar stan collymore stan great to have you with us again let's talk about that opening game russia new zealand often very nervy encounter not being much i'm quite confident we will see goals though because they both really need to win when you've got portugal and mexico waiting yes both sets of things will be good in their breakfast maybe going off for a walk now enjoying the sunshine in terms of russia the expectations are fairly low after a disappointing european championships so they need to come out of the blocks and put a performance for the host nation from new zealand slightly different because they've always been in the shadow of rugby union in the southern hemisphere the all blacks the famous all blacks so it's an opportunity for the all whites nineteen year old son to come here and to create a major upset i would say that it's always important the host nation stay in a competition as long as possible but there are other distractions on the christina and i'll go on his own he's going to bring
4:07 am
a lot of fans absolutely huge new seeing particularly good lots of manchester united fans getting very very excited at the thought of potentially cristiana rinaldo going back to their club after rumors speculation true that soft roots in may well believe it so that's going to be a big story that flows all the way through this confederations cup of course another player alexis sanchez that's not a fantastic season also he may be leaving to go to one of the big european giants like manchester city like a boy in munich or a p.s.g. so playing c. of narratives in this tournament a lot of people are talking about how this is preparation for the world cup is coming up in twelve months time but let's just set. because an awful lot of people have told us that he played in this competition this is a huge tournament in its own right i think it should be renamed champion of champions good eighty's i mean lots of people would view it as a test event for the world cup next year but to get in this tournament except for the hosts you have the world champions germany and every single. regional tournament like the champions of south america the champions of europe all come
4:08 am
head to head in this fantastic tournament so it very much is the tournament of champions but of course when the thirty two teams in the world cup back next year people are going to start to get excited. that michigan going to be in the tournament in st petersburg sixty. hostile russian crowds. new zealand creates you know the answer is yes koshi and there's literally no point us being there if we don't believe we can beat russia they're also negative stories about russia in the press or use a manager as a culture for. expecting to see in russia. well i went there for the joy in november and i enjoyed it we were in cars and and the event was good the people are very friendly professional the tone of this going to be really well run stadiums are unbelievable and and i hope hopefully you know this and we go you know good
4:09 am
good atmosphere at the games but i'm looking forward to certainly not me focused on the any negativity around the tournament. ok we told you we would bring you the big guests here on our team international and here is their income much bigger than this one welcome to news that the head of russia's will cup balkanizing committee member it is a lot of attention on the teams of course for them to perform today i would imagine it's also quite a lot of pressure on you and your team what you think will be your biggest challenge today and throughout the competition. while we were been preparing for this tournament for many years we don't expect any challenges wherever it's always the preparation for the opening match is always harder than the match itself and although we tournament once we once we launch this everything will go supposed upshur alexy here already three weeks all of the four cities had a fantastic welcome in all of them great facilities always in the european
4:10 am
championships last year in france there was some trouble. and also french franzl i saw in the sense in that it's very much a topic in the united kingdom in particular hooliganism and racism while the russian organizing committee and you go free for doing to combat and to make sure it's a site tournament for everybody well first of all quite naturally expects confederations cup to be accompanied with atmosphere of friendship and festivity but needless to say all the security measures are in place. all the interested law enforcement agencies have been involved in the preparation of this. in close cooperation with faith so we're certain that we have a very robust security concept. in terms of racism we. know that not only us but other international organizations no to the individual
4:11 am
but individual incidents subsided we do not see. many racial incidents racial. outbreaks in our stadiums so we think it's not a major issue for the story. i mean i would say that this is like you said it's an issue that happens in major nations all the around the world it's usually a small minority very important because that the media microscope is on russia would be giving out quite harsh punishments for anybody found guilty of any offenses i would think we have all the properties legislation in place it's recently. was made a little more stringent we now have. the banned list we can ban certain people from attending matches even even if there is a notion of life ban which was introduced in toward legislation. we also have very good cooperation with the foreign law enforcement there is an exchange of blacklists so we will know who's coming and who's not allowed to come so all the
4:12 am
measures are in place what i call the taxi funnily day i went into the simply spirit of the free state days ago took me five minutes it took months to get. pretty registered and i can meet with my past within ten fifteen minutes that's going to be huge for fans travelling not just the confederations cup but the world cup next year doubles up as. travel within cities and outside of cities the last one that was rolled that was in germany in two thousand and six and proved very very popular well we do very hard this not only as a security measure but also as an incentive for fans who can benefit from. visa free travel to russia could benefit from free transportation dedicated trains among the cities and also city transportation all force it is. have to have given us a lot of possibilities of a free transport inside the so this free shuttles free metro. area express from
4:13 am
from all airports so there is a there is a lot of incentives for an idea users and i want to ask you a little bit more about something that's not had too much attention think it deserves it but the mascot system i don't know much you know about this is what more than three hundred young kids i think eight seven to ten who will be a school to the likes of and i'll go out on the page and these guys are pretty tough time up my own life so what if you have. or yes we do have a support program to it so it's handled by the bottle so it's their right as this partner we know that there has been a very. intricate system of selecting the zero people for the sport players and. it has worked quite well in fifa toilets and that we have no doubt it will work very well now from the great russian how do you think the national team will do in the galata proof of all the success or certainly we hope to see them and so the finals of finals. ok it's been a real place to be thanks so much because think you're obviously the reason for much taking place in a tournament so appreciate it i think you like to say good job that's cause lives
4:14 am
are quite paltry juice closer to the first going than we are because she's outside the stadium kate how the final preparations growing for the huge game between russia and news even this evening. hi stan hi neal since she last spoke to me i've actually gone for what amounts to a bit of ritchie around this fantastic stated that we can see the st petersburg stadium and as you can see it's actually a huge arena in the meantime what's happened is you've had the arrival of the initial security forces what you just have behind me you might be able to see at some point is we've had all the police cadets come in for what amounts to a briefing and what they've been told is effectively they are the first line they will be checking all the backs of the. coming in i've also had a quick look see what are some of the prohibited items that you're not allowed to bring to the match and they really range from the bizarre to don't bring your pet supplies some people to take flight or to a football match but they would go down to the real kind of nitty gritty of anything that would vaguely resemble something sharp or a weapon that kind of thing and also too many big bottles big bags won't be allowed to sell so a storage area where you can leave everything also at this point is well behind we
4:15 am
have the we have the empty tear of police as well in the full cladding they're full the full uniforms the full effect advance to the full gear and they stand about every twenty or thirty meters around the perimeter of the stadium so it is what he's going through the initial security briefings about what they're going to do and how they're going to prepare for what is a big match in initially of course the ceremony as well. you told us all about you know the security measures in place that the simple fact of life may just actually getting to the stage and fighting to get in the first place is sometimes a bit difficult how user friendly is the whole area. but on our way here i effectively did the journey from moscow by the stop sign which is the fos train which is just over a three and a half hours which is bit like a flight from london really i know all the way you get volunteers at the main stations tell you how you can get your tickets they help you they speak english they will help you get your take it and then there's an interconnected system here is petersburg so soon as you get to the main station here this side of the net show that you can type which is very efficient and it's only sort of full stop to the
4:16 am
center to come here if you get into the same piece spec stadium and it's also six just to get to the train station and the metro is just literally along with a walk through the park to get that so it is pretty user friendly and it is bilingual everywhere as well. as many french very politic eating is up today from outside the stadium throughout the day and that is all for they sell so much more to get through i have to sort of differ take his mouth of you know with the queen's got opinions all the time join us next hour for more. here of course the younger generation is that if they walk the trending go against the status quo it's all in danger of their prospects in life and so many of them sell out basically and get jobs in the city or on wall street and they don't continue in their youth fall exuberance for many enough years to make it
4:17 am
a permanent solution a permanent movement but now labor the point but now with things like crypto currency this generation can bypass the entire financial infrastructure and create their own financial realities. i don't see clear to craft strive to do that anyway i only see that. you have. for one brief period of time and you know divorce immediately. and it is very difficult to predict how things will be called. you about to let some people vote for a continuing coverage of confederations cup later today and throughout the next two
4:18 am
point five weeks but back in the queue for the rest the news they saturday morning and the u.s. justice department's been giving advice to the american public on handling potential fake news especially concerning anonymous sources in the state attorney general he said the caution should be exercised when watching or reading news attributed to named officials we go from explains why the justice department spoken out here. general rosenstein statement has raised quite a few eyebrows especially considering that as of late majority of the american press relies on nothing but anonymous sources sources two sources with links to the counter intelligence community anonymous sources according to anonymous washington post source while the mainstream media seems to love them the justice department is busy reviewing all the fakes no wonder they're getting quite fed up with them at the d.o.j. take
4:19 am
a look at this washington post headline claims that rosenstein threatened to resign after the white house cast him as the prime suspect for suggesting to fire the x. of the i directed james komi when asked about this by journalists mr rosenstein claimed he never said such a thing now c.n.n. a regular in anonymous sources came out saying that according to sources told me would testify that he never told trump that he was not under investigation only as kind of conflict and i took away from it what he did which was he said i've been assured that i'm not under any investigation took away kind of this blanket assurance which we believe comey will say he did not give the president but when mr comey testified he said the exact opposite he actually told mr trump three times that mr president you are not under investigation c.n.n. even retracted their article confirming the original fake news story or how about
4:20 am
this new york times article where not even a sources cited but rather the n.y.t. types it out like a fact that komi days before being fired ask the d.o.j. for more prosecutors and personnel to accelerate the f.b.i.'s investigation into alleged russia's interference in the presidential election but guess what the justice department flatly denied that komi met with rosenstein to ask for more resources and here is house majority leader kevin mccarthy can. firming that these allegations are nothing but faults one of the questions were. public present but he said he's already said it that he has no evidence dick only asked for it for the resources that all the resources were there but good knowing n.y.t. and now c.n.n. is raising eyebrows with their exact quote being what as the reaction to mr rosen stein's anonymous sources statement wow can it get any better than this in the world of mainstream media he even managed to off the justice department big
4:21 am
francis and thiago r.t. justice department statement came just hours off the washington post published an article saying the very same department appointed a special counsel to investigate president from for alleged obstruction of justice again unnamed officials was cited we discussed the issue with a number of experts some time now before his inauguration even that there was briefings going on against only that were contending information that could only have come from a high level some of those of a security classified nature and would have expected a major investigation to have been carried out into the ocean itself to leaking classified information to the media is a criminal offense the united states as elsewhere but no investigation of that seems to have taken place so far those leaks but certainly many of the leaks are more political in nature and the fact is most intelligence officers who were intelligent officers swear an oath of loyalty to the constitution they are not the
4:22 am
patriot who got them the job by the top all these organizations there is a political will and in this political level there are number of people who are obligated to serve the people that know what we did know and i suspect and i do believe that many of these leaks we're seeing are coming from that political level intelligence agencies. at least eighteen people have been arrested during a protest. in the u.s. state of minnesota after a police officer who shot dead a black man was found not guilty of manslaughter. hundreds took to the streets in the block roads after the court's decision was announced thirty two year old philander castiel was gunned down in front of his girlfriend and his daughter during a routine traffic stop last july the police officer who pulled the trigger was charged with several counts including second degree manslaughter but has been fully
4:23 am
cleared the victim's family slammed the ruling is racially motivated despite the officers acquittal has been dismissed from duty. and in human rights watch dogs are seriously concerned over what they say is a mounting civilian death toll from u.s. led airstrikes against islamic state and the reported numbers are much higher than those admitted by washington. the. u.n. says hundreds of civilians have reportedly been killed in recent airstrikes in the embattled syrian city of racket the ice still held hub is under siege by u.s. backed local forces with support of western warplanes and then across the border into iraq civilian deaths are also reportedly rising in the islamic state stronghold of mosul which has been under a similar siege for months the u.s. led coalition has also been accused of using chemical weapons near civilians in
4:24 am
both those cities in what could potentially amount to war crimes occurred mopin reports next. the u.s. coalition is more than willing to update the world on its activities against the islamic state in iraq and syria who have successfully been able to take ground from isis already in rocca or recently walked the streets of east and west mosul i saw for myself that markets and their businesses are reopening so things are moving around the city and living their lives however u.n. investigators paint a very different picture of iraq he. strikes we have believe that the ground for the diverse. has resulted not to will be staggering loss of life but because also lived to one hundred sixty thousand civilians. who. displease the united states insists that less than five hundred civilians have been
4:25 am
killed throughout the entire campaign over the last three years in iraq and syria however the united nations points out that three hundred civilians have been killed in the last four months in iraq alone and the situation in mosul is even worse this is just one example one of these strikes in the area that somewhere between fifty and eighty civilians may have been killed the airplanes hit our street and we went to rescue people under the rubble we risk you don't we could see and then we left the area on top of that the u.s. led coalition is being accused of using white phosphorous. u.s. leaders won't confirm whether or not they're using the lethal chemical munition however they say that if they are they're doing it in a manner that's consistent with international law but human rights watch points out that this chemical put civilians in great danger burning their flesh down to the bone even
4:26 am
a minor burn from this toxic powder can be fatal white phosphorus has been used in syria in iraq previously. asians but since the dental effects can can cause terrible injuries to a question is what is it hitting on the ground and adequate provisions being taken to ensure that civilians and not falling victim to white phosphorous that's the nature of urban warfare fighting in close confines of civilians and legitimate targets closely mixed in with each other and there's only one way forward for the u.s. coalition we have already shifted from attrition we shove them from one position to another iraq syria to annihilation tactics to a billion casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation looks like the united states has made their choice about how they're going to go about defeating i still the only question left is how many more people are going to die for that to happen. r.t. new york we've got to keep abreast of all those stories twenty four seven if you're
