we need to get people to apply the same standards of politics that applied to science skeptical inquiry empirical testing the demand evidence for your politicians told. hatred of the west is named as a reason behind the stop attack at michigan airport the terror investigation is now underway. the recent spate of atrocities across europe has left politicians and citizens alike but guarding terror as part of everyday reality. oh. britain's prime minister apologizes for the hundley get the deadly grenfell tower fire however it does little to stop the protests. but i think that if. he was the pan soul getting away with this.
speech by people in the parliament the good part to play. on is the un says it's horrified by the loss of civilian life in russia as the u.s. led coalition makes a final push to force islamic state out of the syrian. the low and thank you for joining us you're watching r.t. international with me and nikki aaron we start in the u.s. where police have searched the home of the suspect in the stopping of a police officer at michigan airport on wednesday the f.b.i. says the attacks being treated as terrorism and that the suspect has a clear hatred for america. we're investigating this incident as an act of terrorism we have just filed a complaint charging an individual by the name of
a more two week he's a fifty year old resident of canada i think suffice it to. be very valuable the. motive. for the attack is stopped the officer in the neck the policeman was taken to hospital and is now said to be in a stable condition just moments before the attack the perpetrator yelled go to is great in arabic suspect him over to he has been taken into custody jennifer breed in an expert in extremism says the u.s. has made itself an easy target for lone wolf a time now you know there are a lot of countries where you don't see these kinds of things happening but you are seeing in the west the more liberal and democratic societies where we're trying carefully not to offend you know for the last eight years the united states we actually have policies that prohibited our law enforcement from looking into religious facets behind extremist attacks that means any kind of religious
extremism wasn't even allowed to be investigated and so that's why it's particularly in the west they're wanting to export their extremism their violence to the united states and to europe they're wanting to exploit that and everything that they've called upon their adherents to do is to carry out these terrorist attacks in the west and to call on them to carry out these quote lone wolf type attacks on behalf of them and the west has made itself a very easy target specifically europe and the united states where i am by not really investigating our law itself to look at that there for fear of offending people or offending a religion. the michigan airport stopping is just the latest incident being treated as an act of terror this year and in just six months europe has seen eleven terror attacks with plots foiled on average every nine days the attacks of left up to fifty people dead and over three hundred injured that are around sixty thousand potential suspects and one of the latest incidents in europe occurred in paris where an attacker rammed a call full of weapons into
a police van he appeared to have had a gun permit despite being on a terror watch list the french prime minister expressed little surprise over them. so no one can be satisfied that someone who's been officially flagged can benefit from this authorization to carry arms certainly not me so the attacker who was on a terror watch list had a permit to carry arms and the prime minister is not exactly happy that's that it seems that the terror threat is not causing so much shock nowadays becoming a rather common thing on average every nine days and twenty seventeen a terror attack was attempted across the e.u. while eighty four percent of brits now believe that the attack on british cities is a very likely that's not really surprising and after the mayor of london had this to say to the public. so what else is part and parcel of living in a big city well now that everybody's ok with the thought of another terrorist
attack being imminent some businesses to decide to grab the opportunity to cash in like with anti terror insurance which has the potential to be a three billion dollar industry and isn't growing demand anything from a liability for businesses reputation which has suffered after an attack so the obvious def insurance payouts then there is more like an anti terror adjudication like they say you can be too careful so perhaps taking one of these terrorism awareness courses could be of help here are just some of the things you will learn after completion recognizing unusual suspects of course identifying an explosive device and even their nukes on abbey taishan during catastrophic bleeding no time to take courses no problem take one of these pocket books with you while you're on a train or a bus there is a guide for grown ups and now a guide for kids not a big fan of reading no problem they got you covered so if he needs one up they can
help you be more prepared to do to create is a concern that people caught up in an attack may not be clear on how to respond in the immediate. aftermath when every second counts more bile apps for the whole family some are free like the citizen aid app while others will cost sure but the bottom line here is how ethical is it to charge for this stuff or even make an industry out of it i would probably go along the line that if we continue with our training with our support. and huntsman to have our resilience to these scenarios she the fear factor of a terrorist assault becomes less we all have different modeling and how we create the product and what we want to try and do with our training is to try and round off that fear so lost is not completely normal we actually accept it and we deal with it in a robust manner and save lives today the number of terror suspects arrested in new you has doubled since last year rising for the third year in
a row and it looks like the trend keeps gaining strength so it may be everything terrorism related will most likely become a new business nish to invest in the gulf answers and jagow r t meanwhile the mare of belgian second largest city and says almost five hundred sixty potentially radicalized people under the old control of those one hundred eighty nine are thought to pose a real danger mouse is over in all still in austria the country's foreign minister said muslim kindergartens should be closed or let's set this gustus development further now with. her son don't pay for all of it peter good to see is that what exactly did austria's foreign minister say. well sebastien curt's is an outspoken figure in the austrian government only thirty years old of course and he has caused quite a stir with what he's come out with in relation to islamic kindergartens he says that they should be shut down because they culturally and linguistically isolate
children. kindergartens should prepare children for school so that they can speak german but muslim kindergartens a difference in terms of their ethnic can language principles we don't need them or so busting curt's has caused controversy in the past back in twenty fifteen he proposed what was called the islam law that he put forward before the austrian parliament this proposed that all mosques got their funding only from within australia and also that there was an austrian approved version of the qur'an that was used in mosques within austria now a watered down version of that law was passed it didn't have the official verified qur'an in it but in october of this year from the first of october it will be illegal in austria to wear a burka that ban was signed into law just last week in the austrian chancellor kristie incur and his grand coalition government has just fallen apart they going
to the polls in austria in october of this year in snap elections or early elections and the far right freedom party who've supported a lot of the islamic legislation. there their polling currently around thirty percent in the polls there they've seen a big boost in support ok peter thanks for that update is be interesting to see what kind of response there will be to these latest comments that's not a peace at all it is the king live from berlin. victims of last week's grenfell tower blaze could have been hit not just by the smoke and fire but also poisoned by an extremely toxic gas that's according to the latest expert analysis on the causes of the london tragedy let's cross live now to artie's polly boyko to find out more about this hello ali thanks for joining goes so what do we know on this investigation so far. poisons go to cyanide is
probably one of the deadliest and there are reports now that some of the victims of the grand felt how a fire may have died from cyanide poisoning apparently the insulation boards fitted to the outside of the building could have been letting off cyanide as the building burned the reason we know this is because one of the hospitals treating the victims of the fire has said that they've treated three people for cyanide poisoning and a person with cyanide poisoning will feel the effects of it within several seconds and they could pass out and die of a heart attack within several minutes so one assumption is that the gas may have incapacitated the people inside the building before they were able to get out so it would have prevented people from getting out of the building the problem is no one's ever likely to know the truth because of the state of the victims' bodies there's a lot of questions to do with the cladding used on the outside of the building that
material on the outside it's said to have been extremely flammable and the contractors who updated the building a couple of years ago they chose a cheaper more flammable option and the chancellor here philip hammond he said that not only was it cheap it turns out he's under the understanding that it's a material that's banned in the u.s. europe and the u.k. apparently take a listen. the cloud that was used to run just like a rocket is because most european countries is burned to the united states my understanding is that the cloudy in question this flammable client which is banned in europe in the us is also banned here well to reason maize already apologized for the failure of the local authorities and the government to really help the victims of the grenfell tower fire fost enough and today for the first time since that fire
tore through that building just over a week ago we got the official head rolling the c.e.o. of kensington and chelsea council nicolas holgate he's the highest or he was on the elected official at that local authority where the tower is located he was forced to resign by the government to resign may says it's good that he's lost his job but a lot of people are saying that he's just been chosen as the fall guy the scapegoat for all of this perhaps to deflect scrutiny away from higher up in the chain of command people are angry with the government's response to how to do this devastating fire and they've been calling on to resume aide to resign as a result yesterday there was a huge anti-government demonstration in london it was called the day of rage laura smith reported from that protest and she also the people there what she made of to
resign may's apology. the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without roofs over their heads without even basic information about what happened what they should do that was a failure of the state local and national to help people when they needed it most as prime minister i apologize for that. do you write that terrible if she comes out here and says you know maybe. i think that it's a little thing like. when they cry when she gets a little bit i miss my life when they. see. i make choices but it was a little. thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and louis needs to be trying to him why
is it has so getting away with this sort of. the fact that he was. treated like i. think two to reason money should take the blame for these. people in the house of parliament. a good for part to play for his face march in reaction to brucellosis terrorists and these people see them and see immigrant attacks and of course the handling of the ground felt how a disaster in which at least seventy nine people are known to have been to death although the death toll is expected to rise i was approached earlier by a quiet man who handed me a leaflet with a picture of a man as he's that the man was his friend he had lived in grand isle tower he wasn't a protester he just wanted to know whether his friend was dead or alive and no information was coming he organizes that at the beginning of the day that that aim
was to bring down the government and to shut down london. they've done an excellent job of shutting down london this government can no longer have authority over people's lives because they always will put profit before people people have been saying that they don't know how many people were living in grenfell towers a lot of them were possibly undocumented immigrants and so we possibly will never know how many people were killed in that fire. over to syria now where the u.s. led coalition is conducting a major offensive on the city of raka the defacto capital in syria of terror group islamic state the u.n. secretary general antonio terrace has expressed deep concern though over the loss of civilian life during the operation he said that he remained alarmed at the human suffering throughout the country warning civilians are being killed or injured and displaced as a quote terrifying rate because arizona did that the situation in iraq a remains particularly great with people trapped inside the city and facing threats
from every direction the secretary general is particularly concerned about the perilous situation for civilians in iraq were trapped and face threats from every direction the united nations and humanitarian partners are doing all they can stem the suffering and across syria often at great personal risk the secretary general made an urgent appeal to all those conducting military operations in syria to do everything in their power to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure as fighting continues in iraq and elsewhere according to u.n. estimates since march in iraq or alone at least three hundred civilians have lost their lives as a result of u.s. led coalition airstrikes however the coalition claims it has caused less than five hundred deaths in a toll in total over three years of its military campaign it's reported that the coalition has seven full time investigators monitoring civilian casualties there from two earlier this year. ozzy's caleb moore pointed to the streets of new york
to find out how much ordinary americans know about the plight of civilians in braco . if you live in america and you follow the news related to syria here's what you've probably been hearing lately you've heard that the u.s. led coalition downed a syrian government jet because it was moving into the deescalation zone of al tam why they say that this syrian jet was posing a threat russia is obviously not happy now what you probably haven't heard about is all the civilians who died as u.s. led coalition forces are moving and rocca you probably haven't even heard of rocca you heard about what's happening in iraq i know. now. you heard about civilian casualties in iraq oh. i had think i have heard something about we have a video someone talking about it here is the end of the battle when the war planes come they strike multi-storied buildings where the terrorists are but they're also
civilians in that house how can the plane strike then more civilians died than terrorists so civilians were either helping eisel or being used as hostages or as protection against u.s. armed forces so that they wouldn't attack that house in order to get to ice so how are we supposed to take care of that and not kill innocent civilians if indeed they're innocent secretary of defense matters he says that's two billion casualties or a fact of life in this sort of situation do you agree with that oh no not at all you know all life is precious you know and nobody does really but that's the line they use always and it's in reality there will always be some civilian casualty but it shouldn't be effected life you know for someone sitting in a desk chair in washington to say that it's very difficult. you know i think it's
a very delicate political situation some of the reports that have come out say that more civilians have been killed then i still fighters but in surprise me also. actually because there is no they're wearing a badge says my spider right there are there they have their breasts like civilian so how can you always tell me who's who's who and it's been a big thing of it friends and military tell me like you have no idea who it is until like the shooting at you now that this is a prize they say that as many as three hundred civilians according to the u.n. have died since march. oh yeah i mean if this if there's ten airstrikes a day that's treaty expected but again because i think they're making it a fact of life so it's become normal it has become tired light and once again like i said all life is precious and civilian life shouldn't have to perish for whatever the reasons were reasons be the hands of our government based on our conversations here in manhattan it seems that average americans aren't really aware of what the
pentagon is up to now as u.s. coalition forces are moving in on the city of raka civilians are dying bombs are exploding but their plight remains largely under the radar cable mopp and are seeing new york. iran is preparing to publish the evidence that the us is supporting islamic state as according to a media advisor to iran's islamic revolutionary guard in an exclusive interview with r.t. . in the past whenever the americans wanted to ramp up pressure on iran impose new sanctions or pursue their agenda in the region they would accuse iran of backing terrorism but i think that today world public opinion no longer accepts this the world has come to realize that the us despite leading a coalition against dash in syria and iraq does not actually fight terrorism in
practice and is in fact supporting it. but i have seen that a lot as. there are plans to release documents revealing us support for dash however they are not documents like formal contracts or written texts but they cover activities in the field including locations where they provided help to dash they show evidence of arms a logistical and medical assistance which are all clues to american support for dash. the us when they are the primary goal behind the recent announcement that iran fired missiles into syria both accurately detecting and hitting dash positions was to show our weapons capabilities in the past when these missiles were test fired in iran the u.s. and certain western countries said that iran was lying when it claimed successful
launches. of them or. u.s. policies negatively affect regional security the us is not as influential a player as it used to be and it can no longer manipulate regional politics it now has to partner with countries like saudi arabia whose dictatorship and role in supporting terrorism is known to everyone in the region now all the us can manage to do is pick up their check and leave or to back after this short break stay with us.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington or washington controls the media the media so voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before .
hello welcome back a car bomb has reportedly killed at least twenty nine people in afghanistan's helmand province with scores more injured the suicide bomber rammed his explosives laden car into a crowd of people queuing outside the bank to withdraw their salaries most of the victims were civilians according to some reports however others are claiming that mainly soldiers were in the queue victims have been taken to a nearby hospital so far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack but we'll be bringing you all the latest the moment that we get it. the french president a man on the crown says he doesn't want to see a repeat in syria of the mistakes made in libya the intervention there which france was a part of is widely regarded as having fuel the global terrorism artie shaw do reports from paris he almost gave a suggestion that there could be uncomfortable times ahead for the two countries the u.s. and france which has been historically very strong allies the historical conflicts
that the u.s. and france have been involved in together particularly in libya where he actually said that the intervention of nato allies france and the u.s. alongside other nato allies in two thousand and eleven which eventually helped lead to the removal of colonel gadhafi was actually wrong a mistake and he said that he doesn't want to make this same mistake in syria. france did not participate in the war in iraq and this was right but it was a mistake to enter the war in libya what are the result of these two invasions destroyed states in which terrorist groups thrive i do not want this to happen again in syria president mark owen said that he now believes the removal of bashar al assad which has been called for by france in the past by his predecessor. is now not an absolute priority he basically said that he's been given no evidence that there is a viable successor to ensure that syria doesn't become as what he described
a failed state as libya and he also said that the key now is to ensure that terrorism is the top priority and he's called again for this issue to be dealt with by a coalition of countries coming together and he said dealing with terrorism because that he says is the most pressing issue in today's world. report by swedish police as the number of so-called vulnerable zones in the country has jumped to twenty three the areas often described in swedish media as no go zones have sprung up across the current across the country particularly in the largest cities to report to the parallel foetal structure has emerged in those areas with police facing difficulty carrying out their duties their league partly blames islamic extremism for the problem.
some service providers have even refused to enter certain areas in april now provide a postal order wouldn't enter stockholm's rink up a suburb citing security concerns. rink could be made headlines last year when police opened fire after a mob of around thirty people began attacking officers with rocks and facts the national police commissioner says the number of no go zones is even higher than stated in the report and he also called for a change of approach. well we see developments in our country which are not going in the right direction always we see we have more than sixty vulnerability in the around the major cities so sweet and if we see criminality there and we need
to turn around development in those serious and we need assistance of. other parts of the site we'll be back with more news at the top of the hour stay with us. social environment. right. chemical discoveries over the last century made every day life easier but at what cost this is cereal is exceptionally sick. no wonder it's confidential. says sister years old industrial giants reap the benefit. caused by chemical production. you know as if these
