here to speak there to hear. fresh evidence suggest. hundreds of. people. getting away with these. people. named as a reason. for a terror investigation underway. in the recent spate of atrocities across europe has left politicians and citizens alike regarding terror as part of everyday
8:01 am
reality. horrified by the loss of civilian life as the u.s. led coalition makes. so much for joining us this. last week. could have been hit not just by the smoke and fire but also poisoned by an extremely toxic gas. causes of the tragedy. cyanide is one of the deadliest poisons there is and apparently the insulation boards on the building on ground felt how it could have been letting off cyanide as the building was burning and we know this because the
8:02 am
hospitals treating some of the victims of the fire one of the hospitals as said that they have treated three people for cyanide poisoning bear in mind the building's management we're telling people will stay in their apartments until help arrived the other part of this scandal that's rapidly growing is the cladding so the material used on the outside of the building which turned out to be extremely flammable the government's been checking to see whether it's been used anywhere else in buildings in the u.k. and to resume a spokesperson has just said that that cladding was used on at least six hundred of the buildings in england alone so that cheap and very combustible material which according to the chancellor here in the u.k. philip hammond is actually illegal to use take a lesson the cloud that was used to run just like a rocket across most european countries is burned to the united states my
8:03 am
understanding is that the clothing in question this flammable plant which is banned in europe in the u.s. is also banned here well to reason may has already apologized for the way that the government handled the off tomato a liar and also the failings that brought it about and just after a week after the tragedy the first official head has rolled the c.e.o. of kensington and chelsea council nicholas holgate he's the highest or he was the highest on the elected official at the council he's been forced to resign by the government and to reason may said that's a good thing that he's lost his job but a lot of people here and been calling on trees in may to resign there was a large anti-government demonstration in london it was. called the day of rage laura smith was that and she osc to some of the protest as what they made of terrorism a's apologies the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without ribs over their
8:04 am
heads without even basic information about what had 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 failure do you accept. she comes out here and maybe. you've got to listen. when they cry when she gets a little bit i miss my life when they. say this is merely a word i make choices but it was a little. thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone is going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and lois needs to be trying to them why is it has so getting away with this sort of. the fact that. it was.
8:05 am
treated like that. to to reason to blame for these. people in the house of parliament. a good part to play for this face march in reaction to brucellosis terror see these people see them and see the immigrant attacks and of course the handling of the grunfeld howard 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 the man on it he said the man was his friend he had lived in grunfeld tower he wasn't a protester he just wanted to know whether his friend. dead or alive and no information was coming the organizers that at the beginning of the day that that aim was to bring down the government and to shut down london well they've done an excellent job of shutting down london this government can no longer have authority
8:06 am
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 it's how a lot of them were possibly undocumented immigrants and so we possibly will never know how many people were killed in. august solus the prime minister's apology will do little to change the situation no . but i think it also symbolizes london which is now very very divided in terms of inequality where the vast majority of people here do not benefit from the wealth which is invested where there are not free flights which is. where we have people out on the streets in every locality and i'm afraid to reason my has lost on credibility after the election i don't think. most people think she is only because the different factions in the tory party decided where now to get rid of some of
8:07 am
the key problems in particularly in law right across the country is an absolute shortage of social rental homes and what that does is they're not fees to talk kinds of things for example in fees through into the way that people on temporary housing homeless people can't simply get social housing because there's no you can't become. i mean really the crisis is so bad that it really does require much larger scale public investment in council house building again. police united states have searched the home of the suspect in the stabbing of a police officer at michigan airport on wednesday the f.b.i. says the attacks being treated as terrorism suspects has been has clear hatred for america. we are 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
8:08 am
a fifty year old resident of canada suffice it to. be very valuable to. the talk of the officer in the neck he's now been taken to hospital and is in a stable condition moments before the attack that perpetrates a year old god is great to an arabic suspect and wolf to he has been taken into custody sort of a breed an expert in terrorism extremism says the u.s. has made itself an easy target for lone wolf attacks 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
8:09 am
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 walked 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. of them it's going to port stabbing is just the latest incident being treated as an act of terror this year in just six months europe has seen eleven terror attacks with props for the average every nine days it's acts of left up to fifty people dead and over three hundred injured there around sixty thousand potential suspects one of the latest incidents in europe occurred in paris where an attacker round a car full of weapons into a police did appear to have a permit for guns despite being our terror watch list the french prime minister expressed little surprise over that incident. no one can be satisfied that someone
8:10 am
who's been officially flagged can benefit from this authorization to carry arms certainly not me so the attacker who is on a terror watch list 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 an 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
8:11 am
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't 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 a completion recognizing a new. 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 market 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've got you covered so if he needs an up they can help you be more prepared to do what happened 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 while apps for the whole
8:12 am
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 hands meant of 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 trying roundoff out fear so lost is not completely normal we actually accept it we deal with it in a robust manner 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 i think terrorism related will most likely become a new business naish to invest in middle francis and thiago r.t.
8:13 am
when while a matter of belgium second largest city says almost five hundred sixty but attention radicalized people are under the authorities control of those nearly two hundred i thought pose a real danger. i know in austria the country's foreign minister has said muslim kidney gardens should be closed to all of us has this report. well sebastian curtis 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 does you know. children to school because of the girl can speak german but . difference in terms of the language principals we don't need them at all so busting kurtz has caused controversy in the past back in twenty fifteen he proposed what was called the islamic law that he put forward before the the austrian

8:15 am
a bank in afghanistan's helmand province the attack claimed dozens of lives with scores more injured with the latest here's artie's more. well this all happened in lashkar gah which is the provincial capital of the rest of the volatile hammond province according to the governor's office the health ministry we have to stand that. around noon a car bomb went off outside a local bank the new capital bank a branch office there in lashkar gah is people's you tube withdrawal of the salaries twenty nine people at least killed and sixty both those numbers subject to rise in the aftermath of the explosion we had reports of gunfire but that was apparently having security guards. shooting in the air and state t.v. showed t.v. showed harrowing pictures from the scene vehicle pots wreckage body parts strewn
8:16 am
all over the place fortunately no no further details yet just who was behind this and no claims of responsibility either but helmand province is very volatile this has been a bastion of the taliban for many years and it became infamous. to hundreds of british and american troops died there and battles against taliban over the past decade the international coalition troops withdrew from helmand recently but and now back to that because of the deteriorating worsening security situation and the security situation in. afghanistan the taliban to be resurgent taking more and more of the country and the coalition is about to boost their troop numbers in order to counter this has also been a spate of recent bombings attacks car bombings and suicide bombings. the country
8:17 am
one notable example at the end of may slamming states carried out a few bombings here in kabul killing. people as well as injuring three hundred others. the u.n. expresses concern over the extent of civilian suffering in syria's rucka as the u.s. led coalition prepares to drivers not expected out of the city that story and more after the break. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington to washington to meet. the media. voters elect the businessman to run this country business because. you must
8:18 am
it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. called the field we don't need only. everyone in the world should you be a real leader and you'll get the old the old. the old according to josh. welcome to my world come along for the ride. over to syria now where the u.s. led coalition is conducting a major offensive on the city of rock in the defacto capital in syria of the terror group islamic state u.n. secretary general antonio guterres has expressed deep concern though over the loss
8:19 am
of civilian lives during the operation you said that you made a law that the human suffering throughout the country warning civilians are being killed injured and displaced at a terrifying rate which i decided that the situation in iraq remains particularly grave 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 where trapped and face threats from every direction the united nations and humanitarian partners are doing all they can stand the suffering and rucka 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 united nations estimates since march and rock alone at least three hundred civilians have lost their lives as a result of u.s. led coalition airstrikes over the coalition claims it has caused less than five
8:20 am
hundred deaths in the total over three years of its military campaign it's reported that the coalition has seven full time investigators monitoring civilian casualties there up from two earlier this year while these caleb morgan took to the streets of new york to find how much ordinary americans actually know about the plight of civilians in iraq. 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
8:21 am
casualties in iraq oh. i had think i have heard something about that we have a video someone talking about it here it is at the at the little when the war planes come they strike multi-storied buildings where the terrorists are then but they're also civilians in that house and how can the plane strike then more civilians die 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 cattle thieves are 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
8:22 am
but it shouldn't be if that 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 than i still fighters but in surprise me at all especially. because there is no they're wearing a badge says i i see spider right there there we have your breasts like civilian so how can you always tell me who's who's who i mean 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 isn't price 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 pretty expected but again because i think they're making it a fact of life so it's become normal it has become part of life and once again like
8:23 am
i said all life is precious and civilian life shouldn't have to perish for whatever . the reasons we have a reason to be bars 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 mop and are seeing new york. rain while we spoke exclusively to the family of the syrian pilot whose jet was shot down it was done by the u.s. led coalition in iraq oh well tearing up some operations according to the syrian government coalition just the father by claiming the jet threatened i lodge forces in the area the face of the pilots has been unclear since then is what his family had to say. smoothly. and. this would be. but i do know. that. he referred to the thirty
8:24 am
seven lead that he did. this would be the biggest. hoody. well that. guy. has a. you know and yet now i would add that over. he. would do well but there was really you know when. you know what does it feel about to show you. that even amid the. scope of. the last couple. and the. late me better than what i do now is he going to have me and only. me. the the air. and the every day where we get into the battle of the king how do you know the air
8:25 am
i may be ok if. you have a. little. bit of. the u.s. state department has made a u. turn on president from side to qatar rhetoric with a spokesperson demanding an explanation from the gulf states for the brooke. policy shifts have become something of a trend for the administration as virga explains trying to hold the trumpet ministrations every move can literally leave your head spinning take for example the crisis the state department stands as of tuesday is a demand that the saudis back their claims qatar supporting terrorists now that it's been more than two weeks since the embargo started we are mystified that the gulf states have not released to the public nor to the qataris the details about the claims that they are making toward qatar but point two weeks ago trump didn't seem to be mystified when he said qatar does sponsor terrorism the time had come to
8:26 am
call or get to our to end its funding. that phone. and its extremist. ideology and the tweet term even credited his trip to the middle east for spring on the decision to split with qatar struggling to follow the logic so my but maybe that's just how the trump team works everyone gets to do what they want for one the defense secretary can make decisions about sending more troops to afghanistan without asking the president understand it's my responsibility we're not winning in afghanistan right now the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat is dropped in afghanistan no need for presidential approval we are so proud of our military and it was rather successful at that if you walk around. everybody knows exactly what happened the u. embassador the secretary of state and an actual advisor can say different things about key international issues within the span of just
8:27 am
a few days getting assad out is not the only priority and so what we're trying to do as obvious obviously defeat isis there has to be a degree of of simultaneous activity is so i think we have to learn the lessons of the past and learn the lessons of what went wrong in libya when you choose that pathway of regime change for we don't see a peaceful syria with assad in their government planes in syria are being shot down without any permission from the commander in chief what i do is i authorized by military we have the greatest military in the world terms famous beautiful armada is heading not in the direction he thinks it is we said that it was heading there it was heading there it is heading there but maybe all this confusion is exactly the plan i don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is and let me tell you but recently everyone is left guessing allies enemies and his own administration doesn't go r.t. washington d.c. . police report why swedish police says the number of so-called vulnerable zones in
8:28 am
the country has jumped to twenty three with these areas often described in swedish media as no go zones have sprung up across the country. in the largest cities reported to their peril social structure has emerged in those areas with police facing difficulty carrying out their duties the leak partly blames islamic extremism for the problem if. if . thank. some service providers have even refused to enter certain areas in april for example mail provider post wouldn't. be suburb citing security concerns can be made headlines last year when police opened fire after a mall before of thirty people began attacking officers with rocks. in fact the
8:29 am
national police commissioner says the number of no go zones is even higher than as they said in that leaked reports you called for a change of approach we see developments in our country which are not going in the right direction always we see we have more than sixty vulnerabilities . 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 society we are all at international it's taking you further into bricks and if you're watching us in the u.k. or ireland it's larry king now see you next hour.
