2:00 pm
for his first visit. there might be protests but i believe that the people in the u.k. . as you know have property and. property and i think that those people. like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration. the american presidents u.k. trip comes hot on the heels the nato summit in brussels where he pointed. out an enemy. facebook. users as having an interest in. leading to. the dangers posed by data
2:01 pm
driven profiling. a very warm welcome this is our to international my names you know your company this hour the u.k. is braced for a whirlwind of protests. in britain for his first visit as u.s. leader although he will get the red carpet treatment from dignitaries leaders public rallies are expected nation wide to see if. one of the protesters. plenty of. you are there is many people protesting. what's the general. public get in the general mood here. that these people don't want donald
2:02 pm
trump to be visiting the u.k. at all in fact just earlier we saw this protest his helicopter was landing just behind us and things of god extremely loud here these people are forced just part of the protests that will be taking place in the u.k. for outside the next couple of days with massive protests expected to take place on friday and indeed this is donald trump finds official visit t.j. our president. really has official working visit as opposed to the state to just take down the level of pompousness that would otherwise be associated with the state leader coming to the u.k. and of course it was done well before he even arrived here the controversy surrounding his visit has been taking place with people protesting that he come here at all with even the m.p.'s discussing in parliament whether or not he should be allowed to do that following a petition online of people saying they don't want him here in france is getting
2:03 pm
even noisier here now as far as we understand tribes helicopters expected to take off again presumably to take him to evening and gauge moves with theresa may so because a lot of the africans with this visit have been taken to donald trump stay away from all of the people expected to protest so we can see this area behind me is actually the u.s. ambassador's residence to the u.k. and this is the place where donald trump will be spending just one night in central london four so for many of these protests this is pretty much as close as they're going to be able to get to the u.s. president but of course none of this seems to be facing donald trump who believes he's very much liked in this country. protests there there might be protests but i believe that the people in the u.k. scotland ireland as you know i have property and island property all over i think that those people the. i like me
2:04 pm
a lot and they agree with me on immigration. well of course our we decided to ask this question to the protesters here and see how much are they actually like donald trump. i don't know anybody that likes and i don't know anybody that wants him to come here we don't want him. to think he's going to hear this message of people protesting that's not the point probably not although you never know but we have to protest anyway we can't do nothing this man is evil it's a lot about five people in a row in a tory government the rest of the country got a body you got a funny person signed up for him. to have public rights is going to spank free. from but the majority country don't like him that's why people come out and i don't know trump said he thinks he's liked in the u.k. do you think that's true absolutely not it was absolutely not look at these people . in the balloon the bigger the mark the feel. just not extremely
2:05 pm
loud he has. to come one time but if it is he needs to discuss the full fledge of this visit at the first trial and he actually just uses the phrase templates it was discussed plus how can we go on sleeping at night and of course that it's really loud here you might. seems like it's not so much fun. but it is just mind boggling. that it's going to be king. james where it's not so it was only to get. such a. morning's organizers will be making it out. of central london on friday to say no to this event is it what exactly is going to be a lasting for the next three days so the mood here are up quite obviously against time being am i likely to see this continue in the next days to come here really getting a sense of a vocal opposition there to the us. presidents with us to see
2:06 pm
a church line. well president trump earlier left the nato summit in brussels where he renewed calls for far more military spending by member states he also stressed that i surprised a news conference that vladimir putin is not an enemy but a competitor i hope we get along well i think we get along well but ultimately he's a competitor he's representing russia i'm representing the united states so in the sense we're competitors not a question of friend or enemy he's not my enemy and hopefully some day maybe he'll be a friend it could happen but i don't i just don't know him very well i've been a couple of times when our europe correspondent peter all over has more now on one of the well most intense nato summit for sure in recent history. donald trump ran out onto the field determined to try and provoke a fight with somebody angela merkel was his first point of call but he didn't get
2:07 pm
a rise out of chancellor merkel until well he brought up energy and started suggesting that because germany took in his words sixty to seventy percent of their energy from russia that swelled germany was a captive of the russian state germany is a captive for russia was they supply to get rid of the car to get rid of the. getting so much of the world yes from russia i think it's something that they are still ok i think it's very inappropriate to take billions of dollars to russia and now we have to defend them against russia this is all got to do with the nord stream to pipeline which donald trump has in the past opposed because he wants to see germany and other european countries import much more expensive liquid natural gas from the united states put in the well you can never expect what's going to come from this u.s. president on thursday when he gave this news conference he seemed to have changed
2:08 pm
his tune a little bit about north stream three but he's going to have a good relationship with russia so they'll be a lot less problem with the pipeline but to me that was a very major point of contention we discussed it at length today germany has agreed to do a lot better than they were doing and they were very happy with that we had a very good relationship with america while the u.s. president seemed to be claiming to a fixed nato and a speech that really seemed far more directed towards his base his home than say any of the leaders who had been meeting with what we heard from the nato secretary general again stoltenberg was a little bit more measured i think that the fact that we had this open discussion has all song. clearly state that the two will redouble our efforts. it also shows the clear message from president. is having an impact while the happy faces if you will win on from all sides at the end of the summit doesn't gloss over
2:09 pm
the fact that this was at times a bruising and at other times hardly diplomatic meeting one in which who had wondered what america first may mean when they seem to a found out it means they come second it was very similar to a lot of donald trump's visits abroad that he might be in another country he might be outside the united states but his messaging in his aim is is to please his base back in the united states that's really the only audience he plays to or has in the back of his mind and so you know he sees trying to ruffle feathers and really show that america is on a on a new course new more isolationist course more in a sense withdrawing from many things that america had been at the forefront of leading and then sitting on easily against european partners who have come to
2:10 pm
rely on american leadership at the center but are now seeing it trying to in a sense run away leaving a large vacuum both in terms of leadership and perhaps in terms of cash. moving on it has been revealed that facebook labeled sixty five thousand russian members as having an interest increase and it is feared that creating profiles for people could leave them vulnerable to a range of threats both on and offline as murat explains. facebook really outdid itself on this one here's how it went certain facebook users russians in this case were internally so they didn't know labeled as interested in treason so those perhaps with the anti government view against russia all russians facebook only stopped when they got caught treason was included
2:11 pm
as a category given its historical significance given it is an illegal activity we have removed it as an interest category now here's the juice of it who do you think would be interested in this data clue that the thais as watchmakers now propagandists those interested in riling these people up there are getting bombarding them with anti russian propaganda masquerading as ads encouraging them to commit treason a perfect tool to meddle in russia's politics facebook remove the treason category due to criticism but there are plenty more that it's keeping thirty advertisers of course. but the gambling offers no similar protections for information about those categories that it has inferred for instance that or use them i'd be interested in homosexuality or interested in is that information facebook isn't removing how
2:12 pm
would you feel of for example you were marked as interested in homosexuality in saudi arabia where homosexuals are executed how would you feel if you were marked as interested in islam and near where muslims are exterminated and fish book may well have been marking potential traders in other countries much less respectful of human rights in which these people might disappear we've tried to contact them for the comment but no response so far and at this stage it's safe to say that fish book has been literally in being during people's lives this feels like western stirring western interference in the democratic process within russia because they're trying to create tension or suspicion or paranoia amongst the people who might have taken an interest in some historical case of treason or whatever it is
2:13 pm
and we've seen the same thing happen across the west as well over the last few years where we know that facebook also profiles for what is called dissidents or subversive in western countries and of course this can all be sold on to companies such as cambridge analytical the big scandal in the u.k. of the last few months but it's certainly dangerous for our democracies to i've been saying for at least a tech case that facebook is effectively this sort of fantasy system that if the spies could have developed it they would have developed it and the fact that facebook has been colluding with the west inspired global surveillance plan not going as we know from the whistleblower of edward snowden and one of his earliest disclosures was the prism program you know the meshing between the core person the states of aliens this incredibly close now across the west so all i can say to russia is welcome to. guantanamo bay prisoners could be care behind bars indefinitely even if they're never charged the details on verbs in ninety
2:14 pm
seconds go. you know world is big news. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be
2:15 pm
an arms race. clearly dramatic developments only mostly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. quarter of an hour into the program welcome back guantanamo bay prisoners could be kept locked up with charge indefinitely according to a u.s. justice department official that comment came during a rare legal case in which eleven mates in the u.s. detention center in cuba have their appeals for trial or release heard by a court in washington now the official said they could be held for as long as the war on terror continues. i think the government didn't help its case by saying that you know essentially. you know this this war might be like one hundred years war in
2:16 pm
england and potentially we could end up detaining people for several generations of long as hostilities were ongoing and in the war on terror let's go through some of the details the men have been held the notorious military prison some for as long as fifteen years without ever being charged with a crime their lawyers are demanding the inmates be there tried or released the eleven men were not allowed to listen into the court arguments because authorities said there wasn't a room big enough to shackle them all in together well lawyers and human rights groups describe the conditions of their imprisonment up to guantanamo bay as all known constitutional on against international law among the group appealing for release is tell fake honey he's a yemeni citizen and has been detained in guantanamo bay since two thousand and three on suspicion of being an al qaida member he's never been charged in fact he
2:17 pm
was previously cleared by u.s. authorities and granted release papers on three occasions each time though it was canceled up the last minute here's what another detainee had to say about their situation i still have faith even after all this time they did judge will see through this stupidity the better solution would be deceive the american taxpayer the eleven million. to keep me here and maybe nobody but i am a very expensive nobody. ve gone tunnel bay detention camp was opened in two thousand and two by president george w. bush since then seven hundred eighty prisoners have been held there as part of america's fight against terrorism human rights groups have decried the treatment of inmates after reports of abuse and torture surfaced despite efforts from the previous administration to shut it down donald trump signed an executive order to keep the camp open indefinitely forty people are still incarcerated there here's
2:18 pm
how another former guantanamo prisoner described the torment that he suffered torture false imprisonment. human degrading treatment something that myself and many others endured but i think the cruelest and most torturous treatment has been detained without charge or trial by a country that claims to be the bastion of freedom and human rights and democracy we already know people are being tortured on mass the americans at mit it doing the . torture but what's happening now is that one tunnel is as an american high and i think most people recognize this whether it's bush or by. donald trump all have allowed one tunnel to exist and continue under the presidency. time for a football update now croatia are gearing up for their first ever world cup final
2:19 pm
appearance after beating england two all in extra time in whedon's the semifinal it's an impressive feat for a small european country with a population of just over four million people. it's not going to be easy they're up against favorites france in sunday's decider in moscow and indeed one coach who's had plenty of success in finals down the years jill simonian you gave us his predictions for the big clash no i think it is the moment france having a nice drink in. their room. not celebrating their victory but celebrating the extra time. and celebrating twenty four hours more than tourist seeing is very very unfair. i know. the broadcasters are the ones that put the millions on the on the
2:20 pm
table but i've seen for a world cup final icing both teams should play the semifinal in the same the bring the these. one hour or two hours early bring the france against belgium two hours later it happened during the competition even three matches in one day so why not two matches in one day and give both teams and all the players the same possibilities france is not celebrating at all. the world cup victory but they can celebrate twenty four hours more to rest these moment after six matches is very very important and they can also serve brits three minutes so to mean that's extra week for them. extra times extra times ninety minutes ninety minutes these one more match the thoughts of the manchester
2:21 pm
you know boss bit of business to take care of before sunday's showpiece england versus belgium in the third place playoff bouts in st petersburg on saturday at the of course met earlier in the tournament belgium defeating in one nil in the group stages both sides though use second string lineups possibly will be seeing more of those players on saturday where over the past month fans from around the globe have been through the mill experiencing all the highs on some lows that the world cup house to offer reigning champions germany they were sent packing in the group stages finishing bottom of group after losses to mexico inside korea so let's leave you with some german fans determined to stick it out and enjoy the rest of the tournament regardless.
2:22 pm
by the structure of the legal suit when the. moment the suits. mean obviously the thing some tall mother this. assumes an authority to do to me on one side doesn't feel to most closely and we differ from stem view some. people sometimes. it's not. up to the dispute the police kind of a new group of guys can come days when i was given a feel for the obvious of the school so i bought the. one out of choice. off the clock cycle doesn't this fall but. it's
2:23 pm
a good at that stuff you call me about something it doesn't. let them fall months it's got so this might seem longish run off the side of the just which one is in such beautiful body. like. that i mean the small structures on the hunt will. also be pushed above this and i can see from. the i'm done looking sure there will be stomped on the end of. yeah it's not all about the football germany will be back we know that of course and that is all the news from i'll be back in just over half an hour's time with

2:26 pm
both. led. the. effort to see you leave.
2:27 pm
her. alone while come to worlds apart you secretary of state mike comparable made a surprise visit to afghanistan this week promising its government american support in and doing what he referred to as a forty eight year crisis this year indeed marks the fortieth anniversary of the socialist revolution in afghanistan which further exacerbated the tensions between the soviet union and the united states but is that really a starting point for afghanistan's current troubles well to discuss that i'm now
2:28 pm
joined by fazio koofi a member of the afghan parliament and prominent women's rights activist madam coo feeds so great to. you think you very much for time thank you. now first of all let me start by getting your reactions to this latest visit by the u.s. secretary of state who not only indorsed president gunnies intention to hold talks with the taliban but actually repeated an offer for the united states to engage directly in those talks do you think that's a good idea. or. would like to stay. in afghanistan the boat in war but also in peace i think could there is a lot of confusion about the peace process in afghanistan definitely people of afghanistan who have suffered for more than forty years of water conflict would like to see
2:29 pm
a country of peace because the country is now at the peak of so many conflict security stability also the upcoming elections so people want to see the peace and security and. mediation of international community as a good and toured a well ensure further sustainability for peace but the peace process should actually be talks between the one who are fighting in this case the government of afghanistan and the taliban and i know that you are personally very concerned that any concessions to the taliban may reverse the recent gains in the women's rights in your country particularly article twenty two of the constitution which proclaims the equality between men and women is that really what the taliban is after because my impression has been that their main goal is to see the foreign there is out of their country do you think they would prioritise vis a vis social relations and that. we would be very happy to see a change of perspective among the taleban. especially when it comes to the view
2:30 pm
about women's political and social engagement because. as i remember during the taliban i was living in a kind of sun i remember how brutal their policies were to worse woman as women were deprived of their basic rights a future cation working out all kinds of basic rights. now i'm hearing different views perhaps taliban are divided when it comes to their view on perspective about women and gays mentored participation in social and political life. right now the woman still are the main target of taleban political kind of perspective because when they talk about peace and negotiation one of their condition is woman islamic rights and their interpretation of islamic writer for money is so different from the ones who are actually islamic clerks because they don't want women to go to school the leadership when you talk to the.
