a new terrorist strategy for america's longest running conflict. there it's six here in moscow you're watching international good to have you company now police in finland have confirmed they are treating friday's mass stabbing which left two people dead as an act of terror four people have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack among them is the teenager believed to have carried out the stabbing he's an eighteen year old moroccan and was previously known to the authorities journalist is in the city of to a coup where the assault happened. finished polish just had a press conference very interesting details had been revealed about this terrorist attack here into a coup only considers the possibility that the american eighteen year merican
asylum seeker had to be purposefully targeting the main duvel indeed men actually got to indeed because they jumped in to protect the we mean close to dead bodies also said that they are looking into the group of six maroko and possibly asylum seekers all of them the perpetrator who committed the stabbing yesterday killed two people and wounded eight others himself in a hospital in intensive care before other asylum seekers had been arrested overnight and the van. song where at large possibly in europe some finnish police go pretty close together with the international police force with in support we also heard that there are two finnish people who died in this starving and three florina one it's holly and a university researcher one brit and one swedish person who did all these three are still in hospital police had. given decided that they think that this was
a planned action and this was not just out of the blue so more details they did not disclose during the press conference but they clearly think that this action what to who had given this yesterday had to. resorted to people dying on the streets of newark who had been very well planned and carried out the brutality. meanwhile protests have erupted in the spanish city of barcelona in the wake of this week's twin terror attack truce left fourteen people were dead and over one hundred injured and he slammed demonstrators clashed with groups who had turned out to oppose them on a famine bless the street where van plowed into a crowd of people. but. i i was.
i. i mean while it has emerged that some of those caught up in the attacks in spain had been affected by terrorism in the past to chris paul here was one of them and survived the manchester bombing while another is a jew in monaco here the barcelona attack was in fact the third brush with terrorism while the family of scott outran he was also on the us that i am glass has experienced two attacks partridge spoke with him. what happened here in the heart of boss alone not affected hundreds of people their relatives found their loved ones but what's perhaps even more tragic is that this also affected members of one particular family we spoke to a man who was caught up in the attack here on that roundabout on thursday while his niece survived the hardest hit areas such as city looking twenty fifteen and about to craftiest.
was painfully familiar you knew immediately what what was going on i mean i live this life my daughter lived next to the buffet in paris my niece was just here for me it's not like for most people with a sudden unexpected. event for me this is the life i live. i've been working in these immigrant communities and i've been working on jihadi networks all across europe and i thought immediately that it's most likely a moroccan network was interesting because isis had always use spain as this principal. jumping off point for getting recruits into turkey and syria and the question for me is while isis was in control of the attacks were fairly local laws
but now i ask myself if these networks are starting to pick up on on their own and whether they'll become just more widespread in the arctic or cross your. yes the food seller across from the bar in mumbai in brussels what's going on he knew a hell of a lot more that was going on than the police but no one seems to be engaged in understanding what is going on in these networks well security cameras captured the moment the fans. past a shopping list that i'm blessed in barcelona that extremes here could be seen are trying desperately to get out of its way samak state later claimed responsibility for the atrocity we spoke to former home office counterterrorism adviser mahmoud and he believes that lone wolf attacks of this nature are impossible to prevent we always knew there was going to be blowback for what happened in iraq the vacuum that was created by the illegal invasion by coalition forces in iraq and the fact
that isis filled that vacuum and they're now looking to hit back i mean it was predictable it's nothing that we didn't expect i mean it could happen almost anywhere to be fair sometimes these are unpredictable like for instance what's happened in finland recently a completely unprovoked attack despite the fact that their security services did say there was a risk it is a country that is otherwise neutral so it's very difficult to predict and sometimes these are attacks of completely random which makes it even more difficult to ascertain like i said random unprovoked like for instance what's happened in finland recently it is very very difficult i mean you'd have to literally be watching everybody and have logarithm set to pick up key words and phrases in every single conversation and communication across an entire continent that's remarkably difficult these are round of attacks and they are difficult to ascertain and evaluate and assess. meanwhile police in the siberian city of goods have shot
a man dead after he winded seven people in a knife attack isaw has claimed responsibility for the assault although russian authorities say that terrorism is not their main line of investigation at the moment let's get more details now would you go she done a physical story for us you go hello there what more do we know yes we know that the police are currently looking at all sides of the story they're looking at all versions and mainly there are concerns there oh there are reports that this man the suspect that he was mentally unstable and so the police are looking into the out and so that's why the terror of urgent of the television of what happened there is not the primary version with the police now with as it comes to what happened in sort of good we've seen some very graphic images really only seven seven people have been injured and really the toll of the attack could have been much much much worse if it wasn't for a regular police patrol who took out the man the the suspect went on
a rampage and the police took him out it wasn't like the army or the national guard just the regular patrol now the police as i've mentioned they're looking into all versions of the of the event and of course islamic state has claimed responsibility but we don't know that yet. ok thank you go to dan off there. look at other news now donald trump's chief strategist steve bannon has left the white house even before donald trump took office bannon was seen as a key figure in his team however he spent only six months as the president's chief strategist a white house statement explained the decision to bans departure as a mutual one and now return to being the executive chairman of breitbart news one commentator spoke to the doubts that bannon's x. it will help trump in the long run. and it is the one guy in the white house that the deplorable like they know him they like him they admire him and the fact that
he's been hated by the media and hated by all the lefties is just the. icing on the cake for these people they will if they like him the fact that he's being and that bennett is being attacked raises him in there and there are. steam so the fact that trump fired him will hurt trump it's going to i think the white house polling is going to show him after this sinks into everybody that it's hurt him with his own base not something he going to ford by the way does from a political standpoint well bannon is the latest in a long list of losses in teen trump and experts we spoke to do you think the white house establishment is just putting pushing at the try to challenge the. trouble is still determined to fight unregulated globalism to preserve the constitution of this country to reform the vast excesses in spending in our government spend six trillion dollars a year all governments inside the united states just on government six trillion dollars is an awful lot of money to be spending on government and he embedded
others were trying to change that but they came up against i think some globalists . protesters in the u.s. capitol have pulled red paint over stuff statue of the confederate military officer and the demanding that it be taken down the monument represents officer albert pike and is located in just three square and washington scuffles broke out next to the statue when several men. would protest is racially divisive one humans is playing out across the country at the moment after the unrest in the city of charlottesville and we could get the mob in new york subway tiles there at times square station will now be altered due to their resemblance of the confederate flag . these are not confederate flags it is a design based on jus metric forms that represent the crossroads of the world and to avoid absolutely any confusion we will modify them to make that absolutely crystal clear. and reports now from new york and the control to see which has
brought america's historical figures to the forefront not long ago we were out here on the streets of new york asking people if they thought that every monument to a slave owner should be demolished even if their founding fathers. did they stop madison avenue. and rename it you know i think it's fine so if one person is the football that will be by the city you'd be a good idea to take it to. anything that's owned by a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be washington to go to war to defend slavery and i think concerts is very important even though we didn't expect people to want to tear down monuments to figures that are almost sacred in american history like george washington or thomas jefferson the idea now seems to be gaining momentum he wasn't protecting my freedom i wasn't someone who my ancestors weren't deemed human beings to him and so to me i don't care if it's
a george washington statue or a thomas jefferson statue or robert e. reese that they all need to calm down and if those two aren't enough for you how about we try let's blow up mt rushmore that was actually the title of an article from vice media before they changed it to something a little less insatiable but the point was pretty much the same now it's certainly true that george washington and thomas jefferson owned slaves mr president look i think the issue was that you and robert e. lee both own slaves right that was about. that was wrong but if you want talk about owning slaves you should talk about thomas jefferson whoa. abraham lincoln certainly did not own slaves he was always an outspoken opponent of slavery which he ended up abolishing in the context of a civil war now you would think he wouldn't be a target for anger but the people who did this certainly think he is going to launch a full scale war against history you should probably expect that there's going to
outlets like for example c.n.n. that they have you know pushed down on the narrative on the fact that you know that shop is a racist or that everybody that support a tribe is a racist or or even going further that every single white person is racism i'm completely against this. international so that feud is sad we hear the testimonies of afghan citizens who kind they've suffered at the hands of the u.s. military operation in the country that story after the break. oh there are already out. there for iraq.
with no make this manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the crime and. certainly the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. frustrated afghans are driving increasingly uneasy over the u.s. led military campaign in that country saying the civilian deaths and destruction
yielding few results in the fight against. can you see the damage house they drug the mother of all bombs in that area we didn't get any benefit from the u.s. they target civilian houses but they don't target are still militants they say their operation is to finish high school but in fact they don't most of the time they didn't target their value with islamic state groups or active. when the u.s. and afghan commandos came here they first dropped the mother of all bombs in the area in the last six months they only captured a one kilometer area from islamic state militants we don't know what the problems were why they didn't advance if i had two helicopters with one hundred armed men i
could clear this valley of enemies in a matter of hours but they didn't do it meanwhile president trying to spend several hours at a meeting with his military and foreign policy teams discussing their long awaited strategy update the war in afghanistan he took to twitter to announce that decisions have been made but the white house statement didn't give any details saying they will be released at an appropriate time and washington chorus washington correspondent. now reports. america's war in afghanistan has been ongoing for sixteen years and seen three different presidents come and go on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan i know that many of you have grown weary of this conflict. as you are well aware i do not support the idea of endless war given what's at
stake in afghanistan i am firmly convinced that we should make this extra effort. seventeen years or longer smores it's a very big decision for me i took over a mess and we're going to. make it a lot less messy the results while even u.s. generals have a rather bleak outlook on the progress made or not they don't understand it's my responsibility we're not winning in afghanistan right now mr chairman i believe we're in a stalemate at this point u.s. casualties in afghanistan are approaching the same numbers as the victims of the nine eleven attack the tragedy that triggered the u.s. campaign the taliban still controls a significant part of the country and is making efforts to expand its influence investing in afghan forces at this point doesn't seem justifiable so far little has been achieved a new strategy settled on so what is team trump doing about it we know what the strategy was for the last eight years don't lose it hasn't worked when can we
expect it congress united states to get a strategy for afghanistan that is a departure from the last eight years which is don't lose well on friday the president has national security team were moving over the options and according to some reports trump has option a and b. one boots on the ground preferred by military officials hoping a strategy to break this stalemate and is it going to require additional u.s. troops and do believe it will involve additional forces to ensure that we can. make the advise and assist mission more more effective or move out of afghanistan altogether and let private contractors help local afghan forces either way the u.s. defense secretary has indicated a decision is imminent we will move this toward a decision as i said i think it was yesterday publicly we are coming very close to a decision and to spend it in the very near future so for now we all just have to
wait on the edge of our seats to see which way the american troops rollercoaster will roll this. up or down doesn't look our party washington d.c. . meanwhile in syria the syrian army is advancing on the embattled city of deities or which has been besieged by i assume for three years the blockade has taken a crippling toll to on the city and its people. public park was one of the most beautiful parks in this neighborhood it was full of trees. the trees. just outside the city to bury those of you and i still showing.
it was a terrorist seven and during our dead in cemeteries. presupposition. it's not only this park others too are all bare it might have been true to the cemetery . idea france is the plainest in the park but they were destroyed in the shelling. now for the very first time researches in the us have created a synthetic d.n.a. strand which can be used to hack computers they successfully coded malware into a small d.n.a. sequence they purchased on the internet and then when a computer was used to try and analyze the biological data the device was compromised although the scientists behind the experiment do say there breakthrough doesn't pose much of a security threat in that it was just about highlighting possible risks in the field of biohacking some believe otherwise because they warn that cyber criminals
for example could alter crime scene d.n.a. evidence being held on a computer plant false information on a person's genetic profile in order to gain access to sensitive computer records the last of it says it's the start of a slippery slope. it's just an interesting thing the procedure at least logically it's not very complicated but we should look at the big beat the bank each debt our lives human lives our identity but i do wish there were a series of thought more or less so we had to effectively end getting some kind of a post-human you don't even notice where everything out you know to most identity and b. that it used to have far more than the fact that it was possible to break into a computer through a dean d.n.a. means that our i. mean by d.n.a.
is nothing more than just and that a computer at a far more. you watching us international have you seen in thirty five minutes. we'll willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but not signed up to be friggin poisoned by our own people that was loose or biological and chemical products said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam polystyrene batteries trucks there was
a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining . about illnesses from their exposure from the berm pits would really literally send a v.a. probe and they don't want to pay it so the waiting decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they won't have to pay and. get the middle finger the movie is to model is. delayed and i hope you die. isis militants have just shown to patrol base on the left and right demonise this compound. enemy troop movements have been spotted on the other side of the river.
here in the only two groups of militants have joined forces. those groups knew those who declared their determination to found an independent and a mixtape in the philippines. even after two months of funds. keeps finding hidden weapons and explosives. not being up operations in areas where civilians used to live and now a daily occurrence. cannot no meaning walk with no bundle no. noise to get in my. visit to visit it. to see him. walking dead. and. my head is in the species says he doesn't.
a. couple. of. people if you have. more money believe it. or who are getting. rid of them wrote. the. book this is a good. quality don't you know you're to walk to. work at their local nickel it's. all you can call. and i've been asked. to go to. a. very much. do you know what a film director not a party. he was
a little tense. about. him and all. the need for those things that we call them of that you get up there isn't a really big day. no i'm just. kidding because the moment you decide. that doesn't matter that you could do you that's ok masochistic. met the medical team as a general that i met that. medical domestic isolates that could scale did not zico not done was done to him john getting back yeah i met no man there's no natural. takes that i am pretty stuck in the pit behind it there is to know there's only one there you go there by you know the mechanisms of the. non-traditional a lot of what i go.
