is your world news from the international welcome to the program first of all to the continued fallout in germany from the election where the results of stirred up a divided public reaction securing her fourth term as chancellor has been somewhat overshadowed by the success of the right wing alternative for germany party which of course has got its first ever seats in the bundestag activists from both sides of the political divide gathered once the preliminary results came out on monday there was also a rally in the city of dresden by supporters from the anti. anti activists marched against the party success of xenophobia racism sexism. has been following the unrest in the german capital. following the success at the elections this is the building that does. politicians are going to be entering for the first time as an m.p. . in the national paula the shock result has left many here in germany scratching
1:02 am
their heads wondering how this could happen it's been a country of political stability for a number of years now that thirteen percent share of the vote left many people in but it's really angry they came out hundreds of protesters outside the a.f.d. party's election night headquarters they were challenging they were calling the f.d.a. a party of fascists and the entire experience left one of the a.n.c. leaders and one of the right we couldn't leave the party headquarters in fear for our launch my partner and her daughter were attacked by these demonstrators those who say that we are nazis that is referred to this is what these naive people believe we are furious about this we are a party that stands completely by the rule of law and freedom and we want to protect political discourse it is really quiet outside the bundestag today
1:03 am
and there is a sense that the country is collectively scratching its head trying to figure out what's happened at these elections that there is growing opposition to the t.v. those following their election success there's a big protest planned against the a.f.d. but for now these guys are getting a head start. going to merkel for the rise of the others haven't hesitated to blame it on the now infamous russian although most media failed to find any evidence that they did anything to influence the election that news to go to everyone suspicious.
1:04 am
i i. live it has been looking closer at the frequent claims of russian hacking and foreign elections. the russian meddling predictions fell flat when it came to the german election despite the initial hysteria. we don't see that putin has meddled in the election campaign maybe they didn't try maybe it's still coming allegations of russian controlled automated accounts promoting a.f.d. hashtags and the run up to the vote was about as senator as it got and the head of the german federal election committee even felt confident enough to tell a russian news agency there was no evidence of interference but when it comes to last year's u.s. presidential election it seems neither time nor lack of proof can stem the flow of allegations of kremlin meddling that's despite
1:05 am
a stanford university study demonstrating that false stories words the reason for hillary's loss and that the two most believed news stories were in fact pro clinton articles our data suggests that social media were not the most important source of election news for fake news to have changed the outcome of the election a single fake article would need to have had the same persuasive effect as thirty six television campaign ads nevertheless fears of russian meddling seem to be mounting most recently in the upcoming catalan independence referendum that has infuriated the spanish government according to some russia is once again lurking in the background and pulling the strings one of the most circulated daily newspapers in spain has come to that not so surprising conclusion and our channel is one of the main targets of the article work use of running stories about the situation in catalonia forty two times since the end of august not sure why a news channel reporting news is so alarming but yes apparently they counted they
1:06 am
also claim that one of our headlines that reads the e.u. will respect the cattle and referendum is out now fake news but respect is exactly what the european commission president said if it were to be a yes. in favor of independence suspect will shift. we will respect that. i mean you know so it's unclear what their issue is the kremlin's position on the matter is also to be found in the peace stating that the issue of catalan independence is one for spain to address. but it seems such denials coming from moscow don't matter to those pushing and increasingly shaking their heads every time the elite of whichever country feels that there might be a some sort of populist revolt or a vote against what the elite think they should be voting for they almost. actively say oh it must be russia interfering in these elections because they might get a result that they don't want but it's crazy because we have seen time and time and time again there is no evidence of russian hacking. russian defense ministry has
1:07 am
released a video of it strikes against targets in the syrian province of idlib that's where there have also been allegations of civilian casualties from the raids across all the details for. what happened in a deliberate. well the situation is the following the so-called syrian observatory for human rise has once again accused the russian and syrian arab nation of targeting the residential areas inside the syrian cities and also has claimed that a number of civilians had been killed as a result they have been particular talking about the region that you mentioned in the north of syria the region of. the russian defense ministry has once again denied all the allegations saying that the russian invasion is uniquely targeting the jihadi spaces and underground storage is in equipment and vehicles and armored vehicles outside the cities that have they have also supported their claims or with the videos they have released we can watch the pictures right now and all these
1:08 am
pictures you can see that the targeted areas are. certainly and definitely outside the seat is this these are not residential areas they have also added that all the attacks always follow a detailed research of the situation and the examination of the situation on the ground and that they also have information that these particular bases could be involved in the attack on the russian military police last week when you remember three policemen. and that was a very serious situation but the russian and syrian military had launched a counter operation and the jihadists have been stopped the syrian observatory for human rights it's been the go to place for a lot of noise and they've made these kind of allegations before yeah many times and i'm pretty sure it's not for the last time that we hear such allegation from the organization but the russian ministry of defense has expressed its doust is
1:09 am
over the credibility of these organizations let's take a listen the claims made by the observatory science and anonymous witnesses. are traditionally unfounded and serve as an informational smokescreen for the actions of. interesting that it's not just russia's defense ministry who think so but we've heard almost similar claims from the commander of the american coalition in just recently the general has said that the claims made by syrian observatory for human rights are often unsupported by fact be to irony here is that there is a very this very general has been appointed under obama administration that has as you remember always referred to the syrian observatory for human rights as a very credible source of information let's take another listen. yes it comes from from credible aid. agencies like the world health organization like doctors without
1:10 am
borders like the syrian observatory for human rights we also have been able to talk to the head of this organization you know it's based in london and there are not too many people involved in the research inside this situation has told us that he hasn't been near it since two thousand. take a listen. we are under attack simply because we tell the truth about what's going on in syria apparently nobody wants to hear the truth you know these people working in syria hundreds you say personally you mention money just no political stand naturally plays a certain role two people may have a totally different interest in you really trust all of them worst of them that i know of the activists working for the syrian observatory for human rights you keep saying that you know all these people personally when was the last time you went to syria. that was the last time i was in syria was in two thousand.
1:11 am
ok when these kind of claims are made is simple the people get as wide a profile as possible on those making these claims thanks very much for that. we're going to stay within syria because the battle for the city of david store is not yet over but humanitarian convoys are now regularly the differing aid locals can finally get the basic food that they haven't seen since i saw besieged that city children there are seeing some kinds of fruit for the first time in their lives when i guess they have has the details. what these people have been through is indescribable joy and saw that. you know how to solder in there he didn't only take. my left hand come in handy. we can hear about it we can read about it watch it but we won't truly understand what it ought to be a need to our know when money makes feeling but one must know i mean an end as
1:12 am
always it was the young and the elderly hit hardest that died first ok none of them are doing ok unless you do do it little hard to hide it it's not it i do agree insulin is certainly sound i know. if it wasn't hunger it was isis shelling if not that i lack of medicine but the city survived life even did as order is still far from normal but at least it will be starving to death and the more gone of the times when people would fight to the death with scraps of food now convoys are coming in day and night with food with medicine as well as things like vegetables fruits candies these are things that the people of that has or haven't seen for three long years. and the my a bill of one year and he. for ninety. i desire to myself and was what i for
1:13 am
syrians all know what dead is or has been through and the nation's heart goes out to its citizens even the older kids can't remember eating anything that wasn't grown locally. yet you see. of course news that someone was giving out free banal as quickly spread but first it was a dozen children. then it was dozens and dozens. i . was the more enthusiastic children ate the skins before realizing that something wasn't quite right well it was
1:14 am
worth it just to see their smiles and they are sure in india do kamin. it was a fun election and there are still plenty of challenges isis still holds a small part of the city is also reconstruction providing clean water and fuel but despite all that this is a city born again more i guess the see from dead is or syria. a member of the e.u. parliaments discover that a report on the effects of illegal downloads has gone unpublished gathering dust on the shelves it's a three hundred page study and it reveals that piracy poses no direct threat to sales and at a cost of more than three hundred fifty thousand euros its remain buried since twenty fifteen in general the results do not show robust statistical evidence of displacement of sales by online copyright infringements that does not necessarily
1:15 am
mean that piracy has no effect but only that the statistical analysis does not prove there is an effect after two dismissed requests the german pirate parties so any pay managed to bring the document to light we got in touch with the e.u. commission here's what they told us no where did the results question the effect of piracy incorporated concent sales. on the contrary the most relevant results of the study concluded that forty percent of the illegally watched movies would have generated legitimate cells had illegal content not been available former chairman of the german pirate party bruno crams thinks that the e.u. deliberately suppressed the results because they didn't fit the political agenda it was definitely intentionally suppressed because three part is telling actually that the infringement is not killing the music market they're not killing the movie market this can know about it is basically because it was paid by text money and
1:16 am
should be of course published the lobby of the news it industry is extremely strong when it comes to law making they are having a strong lobby in all the european policy a mainstay try constantly to change the copyright laws in a way that they can still go on with the old business models basically they have lost and now they hide it this whole thing and we needed to use informational freedom to get this info back to the people it's a scandal and it is typical for the whole entertainment industry. korea's foreign minister says donald trump has declared war on pyongyang and warned of countermeasures itself to trump inflammatory comments on the north korean leader on twitter. since the united states declared war on our country we have every right to take countermeasures including the right to shoot down united states strategic bombers even when they're not inside the airspace of our country it's an ongoing war of words it's important to point out that north korea's foreign
1:17 am
minister was responding to comments by donald trump on social media specifically on twitter donald trump said the north korea's leader might not be around much longer and so we have this response from north korea's foreign minister now we've heard from the pentagon they have responded to the comment from the foreign minister saying if north korea does not stop their provocative actions we will provide options to the president and now we have a response from the u.s. state department cannot declared war on north korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd. to north korea's threat to shoot down u.s. aircraft even if it's not their rights never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters our goal is still the same we continue to seek the peaceful nuclear is ation of the korean peninsula that's our focus doing that through both the most maximum
1:18 am
economic and diplomatic pressure is possible at this point there's been quite a back and forth between donald trump and the leaders of the d.p. r. k. let's take a listen to that the united states has great strength and patients but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. rocket man is on a suicide mission for him so and for his regime to the kind of measure would be taken decided by the chairman of the state affairs commission. but i think that the strongest ever hundreds of people might be tested in the pacific. now it's important to note that at the beginning of september north korea tested its first hydrogen bomb a much more advanced nuclear weapon than they previously have tested and proliferated and furthermore they are announcing at this point they intend to carry out another test of
1:19 am
a hydrogen bomb but this time it will not take place within north korea itself but rather in the pacific ocean so many are wondering what will happen if north korea does indeed test a hydrogen bomb in the pacific ocean what response will we see from the united states now this proposal from russia and china of the devil three is deescalating the crisis and restoring negotiations it hasn't really gone anyplace that hasn't really been taken seriously but we continue to hear this very heated war of words between the leaders of the united states and the leaders of north korea as of yet it's just a war of words but people are concerned many people around the world are no doubt concerned that this could lead to a catastrophic conclusion a hearing on donald trump's travel plans being postponed off to new known muslim countries that are added to the list the details after the break.
1:20 am
in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corners corporations run washington washington media the media folks 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 . seemed wrong role just don't all. get to shape out just because the ticket and in. equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the.
1:21 am
the u.s. supreme court has postponed a hearing on donald trump's power to ban immigrants from certain countries it comes just after the administration issued a new set of travel restrictions the ban now includes north korea chad and venezuela but expands on the existing restrictions that have gone to iran libya somalia syria and yemen president trump says that america's safety is the number one priority and also the reason for the new measures but the moves already sparked international criticism the mayor of london city car has even compared donald trump's language to that of islamic state he says his antagonistic approach is playing into the hands of the militant group but as well as also slammed trump's travel ban as an act of terrorism. by relieving his routine entry to the united
1:22 am
states all the people of venezuela early going all the countries in. iran of course was among the six months already muslim nations previously targeted in the travel ban and it still remains on the list the iranian foreign minister said the trumps new travel ban is proof of his fake empathy for iranians so mirror can look into the history of u.s. and around relations over a decade ago iran was named as one of america's greatest existential threats along with iraq and north korea president bush singled out these states as the axis of evil in his two thousand and two state of the union address and not much has changed since iran aggressively pursue these weapons and exports terror. well an unelected few repressed the iranian people spoke for freedom far past time for the nations of the world to confront another reckless regime one that speaks openly of mass murder valor and death to america destruction to israel and ruin for
1:23 am
many leaders and nations in this room american policy has largely benefited iran especially the war on terror the u.s. actually helped overthrow iran's greatest enemies saddam hussein in iraq and the sunni taliban regime in afghanistan we have seen a consistent bullying by the united states reserve the. contras such as north korea iran that is their force have backfired we have seen that in the persian gulf region despite all sorts of u.s. pressure ranging from you know punitive sanctions to you know threatening maybe and its own territorial waters at search for a iran's region are the employers kristie it is on the rise and its network of alliances in the region is also is threatening in two thousand and eleven then
1:24 am
secretary of state hillary clinton saw turkey as a steadfast u.s. ally and a regional counterbalance to iran iran would be badly miscalculating if they didn't look at the entire region and all of our presence in many countries in the region both in bases in training with nato allies like turkey. fast forward five years the iranian president hassan rouhani is received in one car with military honors and despite continuous u.s. sanctions on iran the iranian economy seems to be doing just fine so it's not very surprising that iranians aren't particularly bothered by donald trump's fiery rhetoric don we're not afraid and we have never been since the beginning well you do we have been under sanctions for four decades and the people of iran are certainly not afraid now in fact sanctions have made iran more independent in many fields as history shows from president bush's era until today american policies intended to harm iran have all backfired perhaps it's all a sign that iran isn't really america's greatest threat and maybe it's time for the
