private messages and you know the woman i would never safe there it will not you can you expand on that why why are they going to have sex when we're units every time we have a head to. reason you have acquitted people we have found twenty five percent of the woman and the little girl and they have. they have been our soul it is very said reality. tell us who the perpetrators are of that sexual violence the people in control of the men that are in control and they can oblige meanwhile here appease having to deal with the families of ice or fighters returning from syria and iraq after the fall of the terror group there some states like france have unveiled plans to start their integration in schools child pinsky reports now from paris on the threat posed by radicalized children

they just children born innocent into a world of brutality. but while most children are playing with dolls and because these are being taught to play with guns and knives and some have even been trained to kill. well i mean it would depend on each individual to the cops of the caliphate i believe the cool would be actually trying the guns knives and how to kill people and not only that we have seen people being killed and of course that makes it some form of normality for the which is really scary because that means when they do that will be. like to go do something very similar to the real threat to society it's impossible to know just how many children have been brainwashed by myself but they have already

started to return home to germany belgium the netherlands meanwhile in france the authorities putting together a plan to reintegrate the returning children of john hardy as the prime minister has said that sixty eight have already come back many more are expected to follow. the programs to help these children readjust have been announced by governments across europe corners but. down nature already done you've mixed it of iraq. the little children are not only victims but they're on the cusp of being forced into being perpetrators but in the video that we just saw are you see the sadism of the adults being played out through the children so there are destroying the mental capacity for the child to
12:33 pm
differentiate between reality and fantasy in normal lives the murder the road ahead for these children she says is difficult and while there is no guarantee that therapy they receive will be successful is hopeful if the child had a fairly good our emotional experience early the child will tend to be more resilient in coming through very severe trauma. that's one thing the other thing will be very much dependent on how well trained the therapists are governments in europe hope that by offering care and support to the children who return they can help them cast off the horrors they have in do it or even carried out and yet the risks still high that it might be too late to right the wrongs of children brainwashed and raised as i saw fighters shola deep in ski r.t.

paris. in other news this week on thursday u.s. president donald trump signed off on a controversial order slapping hefty tariffs on steel. imported to america today i'm defending america's national security by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum the american steel law minimum destry has been ravaged by aggressive foreign trade practices. it's really an assault on our country well foreign companies will have to pay a twenty five percent tariff on steel and also a ten percent one on our mini i'm sold on the u.s. market however it was announced to you that canada and mexico will actually be exempted and since then a whole host of other countries have requested a waiver to their friends we are allies we work together we cannot possibly be
12:35 pm
a threat to national security in the u.s. so we are counting on being excluded. shoe. exclusion there is no case for imposing tariffs on a strong steel exports to the united states principally to the west coast of the united states but of those states that have asked for an exemption only a stray or has been granted one so far leaving other allies like the e.u. guessing as to what will actually happen next brussels now says it could impose mirah tariffs on peanut butter orange juice motorbikes and jeans originating from the u.s. ben harris quiney chairman of a conservative think tank says the either as little room to wriggle. or donald trump is doing is employing a tough negotiation stance so here's showing that he's willing to lay those terrorists down in less the european union reforms the way that it trades with the
12:36 pm
united states than the rest of the world and i think he genuinely means it the european union can arrogantly dismiss all of the criticisms of it as much as it wants but it very quickly finds itself on bended knee to the people it dismissed previously. now the official one hundred day countdown to the fee for world cup was launched in moscow this week and r.t. has been collecting the same team of football legends to host our special coverage of the tournament for ye former liverpool striker stan collymore and former manchester united goalkeeper peter schmeichel are already on board and this week r.t. announced another world class signing. for all the world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of alternatives but there was one more question by the way who's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and
12:37 pm
a huge amount of pressure come out you have to be the center of the beach but how would you. agree. you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get down there we have to go. alone. and i'm really happy to join for the two thousand and thirteen world cup in russia meet this special one and was also appreciate me to just take the radio p.r.t. teams latest edition make up as we go. twenty miles have. dropped the cliche but it was him actually during a press conference which first referred to himself as the special one. lesson forget it since he's currently the boss at manchester united and he's one of the most decorated coaches of the modern game. it really is an incredible add on to the program to the show that we can bring someone of his
12:38 pm
stature in the knowledge that he has a football he couldn't he can come in from a coach manager's perspective and actually. put a little bit of spice on a football match. i think i wish football stadiums for like this when i play that brilliant assembly and you get an idea about how the atmosphere will be and that they're all in in around the same kind of theme but they're all very different as well variant of it one one looks like a u.f.o. than another one i said the stadium is such you look like a cake. i've been to all the eleven cities yet we will finish or that within the next three weeks. but what our experience of everything has run smoothly and everything is really well organized so my my my advice is to to relax a little bit about the things that we see every day in the western media and then
12:39 pm
enjoy it and not just teens and fans are preparing to bilk a paver cheese moraines if the dolphins and sea lines that have started the one hundred day can ban the small football tournament of their own along with spectators in detroit and the colors of different countries taking part next summer . football fever has started now what still to come for the savvy initial excitement over the surprise announcement that donald trump would meet came jungleland was quickly tempted to look at that story because that is to just after the break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. most somewhat want to.
12:40 pm
have to go right to the press it's like the before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the lines in the how. things should. be. so also not accepted well aware of that and russia and all that and us is deciding maybe of what german companies all european companies are investing in or which infrastructure we have building in truman e or in interrupt i think that's a german and it's a european this. week
12:41 pm
now the world has expressed cautious optimism after the surprise news of a possible meeting between donald trump and north korea's kim jong un the us president is also up. however the meeting if it takes place could prove to be a bit awkward at least on a personal level that's because neither leader minced his words describing the other in the run up to this resorting to some rather undiplomatic language is a quick recap. year of strategic patience. with the north korean regime has failed.
12:42 pm
to get what. they will be met. by fury. the u.s. neglects to international community to stop this from the korean from the. weekend . out there shooting rockets all over the place have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. russia. is on a suicide mission. to try. to use it.
12:43 pm
well despite that slanging match washington does say its approach to north korea is working. what we know is that the mash maximum pressure campaign has clearly been effective for the first time in a long time the united states is actually having conversations from a position of strength not a position of weakness like the one that north korea finds itself in due to the maximum pressure campaign however the people on the streets of your do have differing views about who deserves the credit. i think it's a win for north korea korea because they definitely approach champ about the issue and our president trump was being very i say amateur about the situation you know look good on times square because he's the first president i believe to meet with north korean leader is better probably for north korea than it is for us a absolutely a victory for kim jong un this is an individual who has been the leader of his country for now i guess seven years but has been completely isolated he's never
12:44 pm
much another. world leader it leads to a whole host of unanswered questions and risks that the american president is offering what kim jong un wants most on the front end of a process where we haven't yet achieved what we want most which is north korea's denuclearization. that russia has successfully test launched the cussing its cutting edge hypersonic missile known as diag. in russian this video does show make thirty five aircraft carrying the miss out seeing high altitude the weapon has a range of two thousand kilometers and can travel ten times faster than the speed of sound and it can maneuver while traveling and can beat all existing defense systems the russian president vladimir putin recently explained the need for this kind of weaponry. but accused and despite all our protests u.s.
12:45 pm
machine snow is working the conveyor belt started rolling there are missile defenses in the us going to california as a result of the natives in the some expansion they set up missile systems into new european locations. russia is a major need if you know how but basically nobody want to. listen to us. so listen to us now. but also in the new range is some heavy missile capable of defeating any defense system and. world and also a nuclear powered underwater drone which you called into the russian navy is virtually impossible to intercept well with all these new russian weapons some in america do you think it is now time to talk a u.s. senate is in fact written a letter to the secretary of state rex tillerson in the wake of putin's announcement their routine washington to engage in quote to t.g. dialogue with moscow to minimize the risk of conflict we discuss the issue with
12:46 pm
a number of experts the americans started it to obama first and then trump confirmed that they would look at their nuclear arsenal and modernize it so you shouldn't be astonished at the president putin on for as of march also produced a series of new developments that are not in the start treaty very hopeful that america will start talking seriously with russia and stop stop being the russians as they have done for the last months and years his words that he said no one listen to us now you're going to listen to us hit did center strike so now we're talking about two equal partners sitting across from each other at a negotiating table in which one cannot threaten the other in a way that the other needs to fear you know truly these are the preconditions for a real substantial of and productive disarmament talks and that's what we all
12:47 pm
need and that was the weekly here in r.c. we're back with more nice feeling. it's. not once up close enough lives up to let down one by its nature the definition. i'm by and. one seeking out in the. south. and. taking the equal city south just. ducks to get the gun and then you're going to bring. me said i'm. done with the excuse my not. going to let you know that beach now from south is our. next guest feeling the climbing i love just not enough but i learned to service them tokyo found it was going to have to go.
12:48 pm
out. this look was because did a piece of dancing coral cultural pretty high from the premise. with no make this manufacture consent to stick to public wealth. when the ruling classes can protect themselves. with the financial merry go round the sun be the one percent. with no middle of the room six. million more you'll need to.
12:49 pm
apply to many clubs over the years so i know the game is. so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch to the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money kill you narrowness and spend the two to twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else going to be true so i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game but great so what will chance with. the think's going to.
12:50 pm
come on welcome to well it's a part of the dirty secret of the supposedly clean the recycling movement is that much of it is being done offshore and not necessarily in eco friendly ways that has changed as china the world's largest importer of waste closed its ports to much of the foreign garbage starting march first will that's per the rest of the world take better care of its own mass well to discuss that i'm now joined by kate o'neill associate professor in the department of environmental science policy and management at the university of california berkeley professor neal it's great to talk to you thank you very much for your time. thank you for having me on now one of the most surprising discoveries i made while researching for this program was the recycling in many western countries is more of a gold leave the reality i mean people can be very diligent in sorting that garbage
12:51 pm
but much of it still on the cargo ships to east asia where nobody knows what really happens to it i wonder if recycling deserves this overwhelmingly positive reputation that is it has cultivated that's a good question. i think that the answer is mixed the more things get recycled than . what you would say suggests and i think that when the waste gets shipped to china some of the definitely does get recycled and reuse them will then would here but you're right this story as it's broken and become a widely known has really shaken people when i talk about it people well why should i even bother recycling if that's what's happening so i think it's it's a story that really is is i think appending our assumptions about what happens to our recycling for sure you know when i was studying in the united states a few years back i once made the mistake of throwing
12:52 pm
a plastic bottle into the wrong container and that was immediately perceived as a major social transgression i was given a whole actor on how environmentally irresponsible i was but you were right in one of your articles that the united states recycles only nine percent of its plastic waste which means that only one out of town plastic bottles that you throw into recycling bin will get a second life why is there such a mismatch between people's ideas about recycling and the actual recycling reality when i think that there's a lot of part of it is that a lot of people don't bother to recycle and i think that. they just toss things into landfill into the the black benaud the rather than the at the blue bin and but i also think that there's this some element of misunderstanding about how to recycle plastics and speaking for myself as someone who studies this site i find it
12:53 pm
almost torturous figuring out do i came this bottle do i take the lid off you know becomes a lot of work and i think it's very difficult for a lot of people to to really figure out how to do that so the other piece of the puzzle is also recycling facilities in this country and in other western countries around the world europe by the way is a little better on this but a lot of towns and cities here just simply don't have the capacity to sort and then sell the scrap on that we have already generated so it's expensive there aren't necessarily people who are going to buy it and that in itself has created a lot of issues for recycling at that end not just with the consumers and i think you also make the point that up until recently it was simply easier and perhaps cheaper to. waste on cargo ships bring consumer goods from
12:54 pm
china to the united states another would be going back empty anyway how well do we know at this point how much of that waste is being recycled in china it depends on the waste or on the scrap as as many prefer to call it but obviously the high quality scrap a lot of copper aluminum other kinds of metals go to china and that's where the center of global manufacturing is so that happens to be you know where they're reused and in buildings in. manufacturing. center all the things that we use those medals for other goods. scent there in particular plastics but also textiles and paper this is a little bit more on so. we do as we understand that quite a bit of it is actually recycled but the question then becomes under what
12:55 pm
conditions and with what impacts on environment and local people the chinese authorities now say that they want to put an end to that by introducing far more stringent contamination limits which with effectively banned much if they are of the imports how much of a disruptor that would be to a global waste industry oh it's surprising how disruptive it's been china has actually been building to this decision for a few years. been receiving so much waste and i think in a lot of a lot of it in bad shape in contaminated that they really started cracking down in about twenty thirteen with something called operation green fence so this this set of restrictions has been building. when it was announced last june i don't think anyone in the scrap industry were really expecting the stringency of the restrictions that were placed on. the cleanliness of contamination levels so this is really been a huge shock a huge disruption for the global industry and we're talking about
12:56 pm
a fairly big business because in two thousand and sixteen and i get the figures from your article more than five billion dollars in scrap commodities were imported from the united states to china as far as i understand the american garbage lobby if i can call it that d. tried to be the chinese government to reverse a decision and they argument that they put forward essentially comes down to. citing all the all the losses that the american recycling industry may incur as well as the losses to the chinese manufacturers do you buy that argument when you're way out of the immediate losses versus the need to come up with self-sufficient waste management strategy what emerges on top. for you just one thing i would say the american scrap industry rather than the garbage industry i also. sort of as a scrap waste person myself i strongly believe in recycling reusing as much as we can i think the central question is how to develop robust markets for scrap and
12:57 pm
recycled goods the reason why these goods have been going to china the scrap is going into china is because those where that's where the markets are. there i could technically be going to somalia or one of the lowest cost economies in the world but china is not that but it does have the means to use that scrap if it for what it does the amount that it doesn't actually recycle so in the end i think that we need to be really encouraging ways of looking at how to use the scrap within our countries how to build a recycling capacity but also i don't think imports can even necessarily should go away if they can be managed correctly you're actually leading me to my next question because i think this whole conversation is a very interesting dimension to globalization which allows private interest to
12:58 pm
essentially take the problem out of sight but not necessarily address it fully you've been studying it for quite some time oh what is your philosophy do you think waste in general should be managed on the national basis and in other words should the country take care of its own mass or should it be globalized and if it's globalised then what what is the overside. you know globalisation is with us so i think that is always going to be an option. a lot of this crap trade out the imports china's imports started when it joined the world trade organization two thousand before that there were next to no scrap imports so . this business has grown as trade volumes have grown and as we've seen trade liberalization so those are forces that are very difficult to combat the downside of globalization well there's two two features one is with global markets trade
12:59 pm
routes adjust very quickly in the event of interruption so we're also seeing now the diversion of a lot of the scrap to markets in other markets in southeast asia we're seeing a huge spike in malaysia importing vietnam importing and then we don't know what happens to it we almost have a clear idea about china than we do about those countries for now and we don't know to what extent they can use the scrap but i think there is i think there's a lot to be said for the producing country to really take responsibility for its waste to clean up and use as much of it at home but if it's going to be exported to ensure that what's being exported is of high quality as the scrap industry is planning or trying to do the harder question is what do you do with conditions in the importing country plastic recycling in particular is very dangerous you know as always prepared for this program i came across the data suggesting that china and the united states roughly produce the same amount of waste around two hundred
1:00 pm
million tonnes annually and that despite the united states having four times. the population then dot of china so in a way i wonder if this globalization patterns allows the biggest producer of waste per capita in the world a little bit of the whole because i mean if you can't ship it to another country then the incentive of taking care of it is i would assume is is much lower well a lot of people are talking about this as really maybe another incentive to start looking seriously at ways prevention reducing our use of plastics coming up with alternatives i think this case in combination with the pollution plastic pollution in the oceans which is becoming such a serious issue is really giving us an impetus to organizations and municipalities and other entities who really want to foster what's called the closed loop the way that you can either.
