an avalanche of people running in every direction when i thought it was total chaos we had no idea what was going on and i didn't see the plan i just heard a boom boom boom sound and people screaming. and the ballroom looked people in the floor i saw a lot the lot he was. there able to look like that on the street like it's crazy it's christmas for us. around five pm on thursday a wind event was driven into people on the popular pedestrian streets a las ramblas a focal point for tourists in the city the van drove on for around five hundred meters it's reached placer book area where the driver then fled on foot his still
on the los and the story to say that they do not know his location adding that he could have left the country hours later a similar incident and the resort town of camp or else at. least. when file in a car after it failed to stop at a security check the vehicles carried on his truck people on the promenade before overturning as five occupants that i managed and trying to attack it as trance with knives but were soon shot dead by police as they passed the traders of the two incidents were linked and were planning events big attacks or he's scape partridge has more from spain. i'm here on the rambler in the hearts of vassallo know where the deadly terror attack took place on thursday this pos at the city is a tourist hot spot people from my this thirty nationalities became the victims of this atrocity.
and the tragic reality is that events such as this are now such across border threats that even members of one family can become victims all witnesses of different attacks across europe we met one such witness while covering the events here impossible you know. it 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 here a sudden unexpected. event for me this is the life i live. i've been working in the immigrant communities and i've been working on jihadi
networks all across europe and i thought immediately that it's most likely a moroccan the work was interesting because isis had always use spain as this principal. jumping off point for getting recruits into turkey and syria and the quo . and for me it 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 all on their own and whether they'll become more widespread and marker. the fruit seller across from the bar in. brussels what's going on he knew a hell of a lot more that was going on with the police but no one seems to be engaged in understanding what is going on in these networks and there are other examples as well manchester bombing survivor chris pauley also managed to escape death again
all around and for another survivor moment the boss a loner attack was heard rush with terror and perhaps it's no surprise if you look at how often attacks rock europe these days experts now say that terrorism is a new normality in europe and here on the around it looks like it's already returned to normal partridge azzi also that. also this week in finland two women died in a knife rampage in what is being described as the country's first of a terror attack a small people were wounded to be for police managed to shoot the suspect in the leg and arrest him people have been to stay away from crowded places security measures have been stepped up at airports and railway stations to the attacks in spain in finland the latest in the wave of terror which has spread across here up particularly and the last two years.
one days after the terror attacks in spain is truly as prime minister malcolm turnbull unveiled plans to make crowded places in his country more secure against such atrocities he proposes police advising local businesses on what safety and security measures they can add to the plan also aims to increase the number of bollards to separate cars from pedestrians while the presence of officers and
security pass anally in public places should be increased. i rarely protesting white supremacy and the us city of dallas has resulted with a group of activists calling for the party. auction off i confide tried stain to. tell the money please don't tell me about it. i do. the nice moved into contact a group of demonstrators and favor them line men remaining both sites are reported to have been armed however there are no reports of shots being fired the tensions are part of the fallout from last weekend's deadly violence in the u.s. town of shiela cell which was also centered around the relocation of a civil war monument similar efforts to take down the statues regarded by sound as symbolizing racism have taking place across the country throughout the week i.
live. with this simple i just think. that. i. think they were they were holed up in our dallas siding. here at work and they actually worked on the jefferson statue for robert he actually baseball and the whole thing that's owned by a slave owners change yeah it should be there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it.
racial tensions in the u.s. still heard donald trump appear to back down from singling. the role of white supremacist and a last day sprawls and very. similar to the ones in charlottesville took place in boston on saturday thousands of counter protesters against a planned rally for free speech with them line in clashes between the demonstrators and police within thirty people were arrested also this week country it's protests against trump outside his residence in new york and also in washington d.c. a petition it's been launched on the white house website calling for n.t. fund to be declared a terrorist organization over one hundred thousand people have already signed in
just three days and now the white house has to issue a response callup mop and has been looking at how america's political debate is increasingly about labeling divided groups a warning has a report contains scenes of violence one of the chants most frequently used at the protests is no trial no k.k.k. no fascist usa essentially trumping his supporters are being tarred with the same rush as white supremacists. do you think. that. our. the suspect in the horrific charlottesville car ramming was himself a member of the far right but the mayor of this city was very quick to put his blame on the white house and president trump and he wasn't alone and should look in the mirror when he made a choice in his presidential campaign the folks around with to you know to go right
to the gutter to play our worst prejudices and i think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices trump has made it clear with bannon gorka in the white house and the klan in the streets it is now the white supremacists house. the incitement of hatred to the got us here is as real and condemn the whole as the white supremacists you know was tweets the democratic response to the car ramming mirrors the way republicans responded to the shooting at the congressional baseball practice they blame democrats for stoking up the atmosphere while reality the attack was carried out by a was a republican a that you had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left three percent tension has been building. i think since election night the hype of both vitriol from the left has spurred threats and now action without historical parallel events like today are exactly why we took issue with and why elites glorifying the assassination of a president now most americans liberal conservative or otherwise are not violent
however it seems like the leaders of the two major political parties try to make the other half of the electorate look like they are and that seems to be mobilizing people in both camps if you want to start something. and demonize me and i don't give. thanks. to our better. than that. was the united states has created a political system in a way to demonizing one side means supporting the other side for many voters those who haven't really learned that much about their parties yet the the solution to
this is to reduce some of these impediments to we need a system in which political parties have to fight for their own ideas they have to show why what they believe is good and why it's right and what's an excellent idea . and not just focus on demonizing the other side so no matter what your political outlook is the best strategy seems to be the same generalizing. it will pop and r. to your. north korea has threatened to strike war and washington of the risk of uncontrollable nuclear war plan ten day military drills between south korea and the us hat the annual war game simulating military conflict with an isolated country. that provocation while the u.s. maintains there. are those here some seventeen and a half thousand pound of ground troops are expected to take part john donne
emeritus professor at kings college temperature and the u.k. says there will be retaliation attacks american soldiers. which is a very dangerous situation because. what is happened in the past when north korea has actually. has always been the. real. target. to many in the forces i mean would be retaliation i believe you should ever think with clarity intention to use nuclear. weapons as a threat because it is possible to use. have been used before and they all use results or absolutely important. i don't think north korea wants to risk
a new. i mean you have to be crazy to do so. how us foreign policy sometimes goes against the wishes of the international community when it comes to food. in policy it seems that trump is trying to twist the knife into some of the most balto international issues. there's fire and fury for north korea while the international community is calling for deescalation in the region trying to spouting some of the most aggressive rhetoric that's been heard and done . and this may not get away with what he's doing only they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see kind of attitude will see the escalation rest breaks suddenly doesn't solve the problem the solution to these cries this must be political the potential consequences of military action. to even contemplate. the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal and
a group that took two years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. in response to washington's threats of more sanctions to promise so that they can pull out of that deal all together but america's u.n. ambassador doesn't appear all that concerned iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage the nuclear deal must not become too big to fail. and then there is venezuela a country divided after months of violent protests and the run up to a key election. tell bring an end to that trumps and just meeting fire with fire apparently the white house wants to kill a divided society and political scene with more violence we have troops over the
world in places that are very very far away venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and dying we have many options for venezuela including a. military option if necessary whatever happened in terms promises of making the world a less nasty place to live i would love to be able to get along with everybody right now the world is a mess but i think by the time we finish i think it's going to be a lot better place to live for now it seems the president has zero intentions of making friends with everyone. r. t. washington d.c. . already has been campaigning to help find the relative or friend to russian speaking children stranded in an iraqi orphanage belief their parents traveled to the war torn country to join i sell and then either bandon them or were killed and he received responses from people who recognize some of the children one
of those spot it was little mariam. the phone call to that very same shelter the voice on the other end says another girl has just been brought in from mosul. but it could be too early to talk for her any question and the girl may break down. this psychological state she's struggling to answer a question as simple as what's your name got to. study because. of this. because it's clear mariam is lucky to be alive there are scores why donor face surviving this head injury is almost a miracle. surrounded by other kids in caring shelter workers mariam gradually got to the point when she began talking believe it or not mariam gets least stressed out when she speaks of her once just to. chill out and
that. you. why is that. it seems the lucky escape happened shortly after that dreadful experience but here's mariam describing what happened just before she found herself at the epicenter of the war. they teach a buddhist it's just that they just don't need to do that it was a. little bit of unknown it up mariam is not the only girl who has told us about the horrors by some river that's apparently where many children lost their mothers. promise to suggest. that this. is.
the mom i know never. divulge. what kind of other horrendous things decent people went through somewhere by the river in mosul we can only guess mariam doesn't remember anything more or just can't talk about it we ask about her father but she can barely see a thing but we knew that the state and us and the do. believe . this yet there is a glimmer of hope that she can grow up in peace and reunite with her family grandparents. play good good. know that you love the stuff. even question it was. it that you know. that nothing that it.
blew up at the last is that there are a good as deluded as soon you know more soon you know it and i am. she didn't stumble into his this is sure. who says that half as totally untrue you say most of you know how. far. i am usually. chairs of the people of the real numbers up and down consultation between attention who delegated all systems of. our. pm i sat here and there is a i hate those that have opened it to a loose guess is now. now breaking news in our national russian air forces have eliminated more than two
hundred terrorists there as door and syria there were also twenty vehicles destroyed along with ammunition and weapons including tanks and more according to the russian ministry of defense the terrorists are trying to regroup and establish a new base there also say represents a strategic defeat for the terror group we'll keep you updated new developments to this story. and now the american civil liberties union hail a day has story victory after a case involving the cia torture program was settled. was filed against two psychologists who rang to end more than eighteen million dollars developing the agency's so-called enhanced interrogation program because of their status as private contractors the last few targeted as private citizens the plaintiffs were
to torture survivors the family of. a man who died in a secret cia prison. partially declassify cia report described at the events leading up to his death. treated rahman harshly because of rahman's alleged. uncompromising reactions or didn't terry cation and lack of cooperation the pressure to break him lack of experience with a committed interrogation resistor on november two thousand and two ordered to approve the gods placing roman in the short chain position whereby he was compelled to sit on the concrete floor of his so roman was only clothed in a sweat shirt. directly led to roman's death by hypothermia. and this torture methods have repeatedly been criticized by human rights activists here is a reminder. of some of the other so-called interrogation techniques reportedly used
in america's secret prisons. the. psychologists a lawyer is claiming that their clients were public servants of those actions actions were authorized by the u.s. government they say everything the defendants dead was in the line of duty and carried out in an effort to protect innocent lives from suspected terrorists meanwhile an attorney for the american civil liberties union who represented the plaintiffs sas that the case sets an important precedent. this is a historic victory for our clients and the rule of law this outcome shows that
there are consequences for torture and that survivors can and will hold those responsible for torture accountable it is a clear warning for anyone who thinks they can torture with impunity former cia analyst and whistleblower john kerry akhil believes that there are more similar cases to come but the cia you won't give up without a fight. this is absolutely a precedent for other victims to seek justice of course there are some who i think the cia would fight because their cases are very sensitive but there are so many other people who were sent to slee. torture for no reason people who had no ties to terrorism but were just in the wrong place in the wrong time it's going to enable them to seek justice and to seek monetary compensation. twenty eight minutes into the hour and you're watching our team for national we'll be back with a more news at the top of the hour.
