9:02 pm
that. was. was. around seven thirty am silva how to drive a full speed through the westminster area before crashing into barriers outside the houses of parliament if not for parliament summary sas this would normally be a bustling government area there with iconic landmarks nearby like big ben and westminster abbey is always very popular with tourists places now lifted the cordon with the area already having been the scene of previous attacks are now considering closing the raid outside parliament to vehicles she says incident last three people
9:03 pm
in just two were hospitalized with life threatening injuries offices there have been since patrolling the streets of england scotland and wales and the government's cambridge and response committee this afternoon and it's to say a chicken at reports from westminster. we are as close as physically possible to the houses of parliament that area is now cordoned off as you can see behind me while police now investigate what it is exactly that happens what we do know is about twenty minutes before age in the morning what is being described as a silver ford fiesta had hit cyclists and then crashed into security barriers right outside houses of parliament again the parliament right now is in recess so no m.p.'s were present there at the time and we know that armed police had arrested one man and taken him to into custody to a police station in south london where he is being questioned according to scotland
9:04 pm
yard however this man is not cooperating with authorities quite yet this is what they had to say the driver of the fiesta who was allowed in the vehicle was arrested at the scene by armed officers who were already knew. the man is in his late twenty's and he's been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offenses and has been taken to the police station where he remains in custody. given that this appears to be. the method of this being an iconic sites we are treating it as a terrorist incident and the investigation is being led by officers from the counterterrorism from the two people were injured and taken to hospital it's understood that they're not in critical condition and are going to be fine following this attack and so we've been talking to a witness here a local resident who saw it all with his oh my eyes let's take a listen to how he described what happened i've seen. a car driving erratic lead
9:05 pm
towards i was apartment and the bridge be. the one of the big logs the barrier is did you see the man who was in the car who they arrested i. think is here with. a. he seemed quiet. to me didn't seem he wasn't i didn't see him i didn't hear him screaming or anything or show in and didn't resist a raise is worrying because i'm a father of two young sons you know age almost seven and five and a hoffman worry and i mean but this. this is like this is one of this is like the number one city in the world in my prince of london you know you so many tourists come here throughout the year and you know it's beautiful weather and you know another thing i understand all the m.p.'s on holidays where to land is i don't know
9:06 pm
what it's all about well if confirmed by the police that this is a terrorist attack it's going to turn out to be the first one this year but unfortunately one of several have taken place recently. you won't succeed and you want to fight us we'll be cowed by terrorists. you will see over the next few days i mean creased number off and on and off across london. the attempts to. make countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together. and. they continue to
9:07 pm
be visible patrols around manchester which include the deployment of offices. in london as will see an increased police presence today and other. course of the next few days no reason to be a lot ok. to be going to. london as we'll see an increased number of visible police officers. we have discussed the incidents with experts place officer roger gray and former intelligence officer charles sheep ranch. there's no question that intelligence is key to foiling sorting and i believe in preventing these attacks taking place and
9:08 pm
in that respect for example as we've seen today if the intelligence systems fail to the extent that an attacker actually gets through to his target today it was against a hard target but was it to be a softer target in terms of civilians in the street for example tourists and so on then of course there's nothing can be done at that stage and very little can be done to actually protect them should this indeed turn out to be a terrorist attack but of course it's too early at this stage at least to speculate about today's incident and whether any of those considerations were actually applied but generally speaking of course intelligence cooperation between the different intelligence bodies and the trust that's needed between those intelligence bodies to actually share intelligence in a meaningful way and in a timely way rather than just sitting on the intelligence is absolutely vital and not just between europe in another partners but between the intelligence services and the police in the countries themselves including as it's been a problem in the past in the united kingdom to there's
9:09 pm
a danger of overreaction as well london is congested enough as it is it toyman if we start being more thought of no go zones that were let's go to become worse but also we don't want to give any terrorist or the process any sense of success in carrying us into doing one thing or the other the result of their actions so it's something we should be considered but why very carefully. if we now where a major motorway bridge has collapsed in the northern city of genoa sending vehicles plunging some fifty meter if its leaves in terry ministry has put the official death toll at thirty one with every dozen people injured it. emergency services said thirty five people have been killed including a child. before
9:10 pm

9:11 pm
a little bit of c.d.t thought because she may. well be on my list people who. dedicate but n.t. requested the serenity to do to push on all that was a story that the international court of ensure that if she calls it up she got the momentum going into that amount to get the featured it just. italian prime minister just said picante has visited the site of the tragedy and spoken to the rescue us waking the firefighters a set showing through the ruins of the bridge using rescue dogs to locate possible survivors pits come out less down to a chair called say believes the bridge was carrying more traffic than it was designed to handle. i ran two calls on this tragedy. probably is not due to the lack of mountain answer or two where it. was. there is east for fifty years probably
9:12 pm
heat capacity to access it you are right there to access user due to decrease of traffic now beyond the responsibility. in an increasing arche is that it is possible to identify responsibility to the stickball of these and in particular only to the government here in the field or to create a new infrastructure comparable to respond to the increase of the volume of decreasing traffic volume and developing all of the cities but this is not a problem of only an infrastructure but it is a problem of all in the european states. the latin american news channel has been banned from facebook for the second time this year and the outlet is not alone in being sidelined by the asked by the social media
9:13 pm

9:14 pm
isn't a case of deja vu just last week in fact in four was an alternative to controversial media platform run by alex jones was also banned by you tube our poll and facebook for violating policies and terms of use now what do these have in common and independent platform criticized for spreading all right conspiracy theories and a left leaning channel publicly funded by but as well or cuba or bolivia. and seemingly diametrically opposed views the answer is both a critical of the american establishment swallow b. and global regime change both have now faced bans during the battle against fake news conducted by facebook along with its new partners such as the digital forensic research lab now this is an offshoot of the atlantic council think tank in turn a member of the atlantic treaty organization although formally independent of nato
9:15 pm
and washington openly sharing both their values and speakers fighting fake news is a noble cause terms of use platforms. varlet expect a burn increasingly though the question will be os this is violating social media policies or violating mainstream consensus and prevalent narratives that can really do in hot water we've asked facebook to comment on why they found the outlets so far they've chosen not to respond and your respective tatiana will cast the english multimedia director for telly who says that facebook's new name is very alarming. we're not aware and we didn't get an explanation we're going to me mail yesterday afternoon saying that our page was removed and this email that we were violating the terms of use but it didn't we don't consider that an explanation since we've doing get got a reason or we are they didn't explain how in what way were we violating supposedly
9:16 pm
violating the terms of use not a specific content that we posed not a specific article or video nothing so we're still waiting for the terms we answer back and we got an answer saying they were there in generics we're checking in the case but that was it certainly we don't want to speculate but what it brings this remove it brings like. alarm about how facebook works and how. like any instructors to help them and to hold them into accountable and but they're not providing like reasons so it is arming we still hope it's a mistake we're still hoping for them to apologize for this mistake but if it's not we're going to prepare a response and we do think it's alarming and a bit scary that facebook could be yeah a place where. or
9:17 pm
a span and some voices are not allow we we're not doing anything different from what we have been doing since the beginning of our english outlet. in in facebook so we were aware of the terms of use when we started and we were not motivating this terms and we would like change the way our perspective is and the covers we do for this not an inch why would we. the media is almost always hungry for more when it comes to the details of private lives of top politicians but one french channel got caught red handed with what tonight to be a very misleading report. thank
9:18 pm
you feel good about holding the call a little bit closer. thank . you. it's not fake but involuntary arrow which the information direction of from television are correct thank you. thank you and in full entry for the support praise god for the incompetent. friends who doesn't take time off from the great us. all to risk all credibility and to meet such.
9:19 pm
good. and i've been needs taliban minutes since have ever run a military base in northern afghanistan killing seventeen soldiers that says the u.n. has confirmed over one hundred civilians were killed in the latest clashes between the taliban and afghan forces in the city of gassed me locals he managed to flee the area described what may seem very. proud to be a property of god many people including the one of my neighbors were killed there i saw my friend dying or he was among thirteen people including children and women who were killed during an airstrike last night in cosmopolitan spot told not that i have escaped from gaza province where the fighting is still ongoing the good. it's been about five days since the conflict started but there's no attention from the government and no facilities for the residents dead bodies are still on the road sides i've also been injured. the city of ghastly has long been considered
9:20 pm
a strategic area due to its close vicinity so the capital kabul fighting that escalated on friday when the taliban attempted to storm and take control taliban fighters have been blocking the roads in and out of the city to prevent the afghan military getting reinforcements in looks at how most two decades of the american led war in afghanistan has failed to make the country it appears any safer. this is what's happening just a little more than one hundred kilometers from the capital kabul there's barely a camera in gaza any available to film this dreadful battle locals say there are stronger descriptions than simply the tele ben is back in action and if it wasn't for us airstrikes the afghan army could have been in far worse trouble so it makes
9:21 pm
you wonder do american diplomats and their military keep in touch there's nothing that precludes us from an gauging with the taliban we're doing everything we can to ensure that our actions help the taliban and the afghan government does the same table. everything they can only a few weeks ago the state department said talking with the taliban was a good idea and regardless of how hostile their actions the extremists say they're forward to this is what we wanted and were waiting for to sit with the us directly and discuss the withdrawal of foreign troops from afghanistan the rumor is there's already been some direct contact at least we know for sure alice wells went to qatar last month where the taliban's got a political office i'm confused the armed group has all but regained its might which not so long ago are in them a reputation of out reich islamist barbarians in america and pretty much all over
9:22 pm
the world we acted and the taliban no longer is in power in afghanistan which is not only good for the security of the free world it is incredibly good for the people who suffered in afghanistan on the barbaric rule time flies us administrations come and go fair enough but the things the people in charge say about insurgents today could be totally different tomorrow taliban this taliban that the taliban are fighting isis and we encourage that because isis needs to be destroyed. oh so they're good for something at least if it's about knocking out islamic state yet just a few months earlier general nicholson said the taliban's fight against dyess was a piece of russian propaganda we see here a narrative that's being used that grossly exaggerates the number of isis fighters
9:23 pm
here this narrative then is used as a justification for the russians to legitimize the actions of the taliban and provide some degree of support complicated heart of ghana stand business as usual and the american strategy for afghanistan see above the american strategy a strategy from the beginning of the so-called war on terror which was launched after the september eleventh attacks as this war has turned out to be an utter failure. you know i was we all know taliban was in a stronger position than it ever was in two thousand and one and so and so i think it's proof that the u.s. has been pursuing a wrong strategy in defeating terrorism on the contrary i think that the u.s. involvement up until now when the focus on military force in the region has the growth of terrorism the taliban is not just pulling out a gun it's firing it it could be time for the pentagon and the state department to
9:24 pm
hunt for ideas together and be more precise. meanwhile more than twenty thousand refugees have returned to syria in the past four months authorities say that people have been coming back since the three even terrorist groups that was announced illegal or shot them have met some of them retaining. the border between syria and lebanon which is literally some two kilometers away from here is expected to become a major flood gate for those whose home sickness has turned into something big going to the actual return home right now we are one. out of five ports of entry established by the syrian government as they welcome its citizens whole like there were many things to run from terror. pointless and unspeakable brutality but now there's one homeland i know we suffered from terrorism for three years and
9:25 pm
eight months all kinds of weapons were used against us but we stood firm and did not give up and kept fighting until we were transferred here the terrorists who are against life itself against peaceful citizens women and children it was very difficult for us to leave but the terrorists were living in good conditions come to the terrorists let my city so i decided to return because it is safe there now my town in syria is safe now that's why i decided to return with my family the government has promised to restore infrastructure in amman scale from hospitals to schools judging by the rules in this school there's a new subject on the curriculum and it's called survival from different types of landmines to improvised explosive devices and to simply objects that kids should be aware of this is what children in this school will be taught about when it opens this september but not everyone will be welcomed back to revive a peaceful existence here like the white house hailed as
9:26 pm
a rescue organization by the west damascus isn't looking forward to their return syria's living abroad who have committed nothing against their i mean you know citizens should feel nothing at all the government will ensure their safety and those who chose to flee the country should have committed the crimes. which made them very afraid of staying in the country so the white helmets are criminals and they should be treated this way there are many displaced syrians who are being warned against getting ready to. come home just yet we think that it's premature to promote returns serious still very insecure there's still a lot of lore going on in syria even though out of the seven million people who did escape the conflict. grew through them to come back to syria but there will be no
9:27 pm
hope of rebuilding the country from the west florida do will there be a particular western countries should support the return of syrian citizens and lift economic sanctions against syria because people who want to return need schools hospitals food and shelter for their families the e.u. and the us have been and when we say the e.u. we must remember that britain is the driving force of the policy towards toward syria what britain and u.s. led you following along in its wake have since twenty eleven made it their policy to destroy syria to destroy the syrian government by any means necessary to facilitate a train and equip a sectarian brutal sectarian insurgency the floodways to the country their policy has been to make syria uninhabitable and their policy remains to ensure that it stays uninhabitable so syrian refugees in europe absolutely caught between well
9:28 pm
a rock and a hard place is putting it very very mildly on the one hand they have the e.u. then the us still continuing to enact this policy of making their own country uninhabitable and then in the same time you have this growing fascist street movement in. in the e.u. that's actually has even influence over for example the british government whose policy is to basically make europe uninhabitable for their hatred towards assad unites a lot of syrians who chose to flee their country well now at least judging by the promises the syrian government seems to be extending an olive branch to those who seek to do. no more damage done of the forcing from syria. so clayburn use up pay for this out i'll be back in just over thirty minutes but the latest headlines see that.
9:29 pm
they gave a camera. roughly once they showed some leaves for them. videos and filming with the up police doing that that's. going down on string i don't
9:30 pm
rightly don't t.v. . greetings and salutations. this week here in america while we enjoy our i tunes and sip our lattes crunch our big macs and stress over our normal daily routines you know work eat sleep was rinse repeat half a world away in the war torn country of yemen thousands gathered on monday in the city of sadat to bury fifty one people including forty children who lost their lives after a saudi u.a.e. coalition air strike took out a school bus she isn't more grand but why should why should that make me put down my latte or take off my ear buds us well i mean.
