islamic state terrorists fighting is now waging in near the iraqi border the final showdown with eisel was delayed to allow families to flee the area a spokesperson for the kurdish led the syrian democratic forces says the battle is almost over. here our troops began an offensive at six pm local time airplanes targeted the terrorists weapons depos there is fierce fighting on the outskirts of the camp our forces and i ready to finish what is left of eisel off. the village of bugaboos has been a focal point of the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now despite donald trump repeatedly declaring victory over eisel america's top general says otherwise are to sleep a tranquil comments. have a look at but who's right there near the border with iraq we didn't really hear about it in the course of syria's civil war misery now's the time it is really being called the last remaining eyelet of territory in syria.
11:03 pm
indeed we've seen crowds of escaping civilians and even jihad as who did choose to surrender the current say they want to make sure all innocent people make it out of the goos before the guns go off just a short while ago though donald trump was bragging about his army and allies crushing islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however we've kept hearing absolutely different takes from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground the head of u.s. central command is sure i still hasn't surrendered he's confident it's not been
11:04 pm
defeated instead the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and wait for the right time to make a comeback reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over we have won against isis now we've won and at least for now president trumps proud announcement that the american soldiers were pulling out makes less and less sense the pull. it would have definitely scored mr trump some valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this but google's thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of ice and see a resurgence you know running out we'll come back if we have to anyway whatever happens next depends on what ignites and this small but vital strip of land known as booze well as general votel testified in congress recently and he
11:05 pm
said. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have formed we believe that farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date from the later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's one hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps special forces you see advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis
11:06 pm
is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. many of those who escaped to the fighting in bugaboos have been put into a refugee camp and there they are facing new threats with shortages of food and medicine . so i have i was in lattakia i didn't leave to john i says i love seeking jihad for god because we're almost and we have verses about jihad and the war about the killing slaughtering and torture some are repentant and have left islamic state but as disturbed of the regime it had the right approach.

a violation of our democracy and freedom. who declared himself interim leader in january says he will ask the country's national nationwide blackout crocker's calls the outage an act of sabotage by the u.s. but the opposition says the majority government is to blame some though had a very different ideas about what caused it u.s. senator marco rubio a staunch advocate of removing woodrow tweeted the because of the power outage was a transformer explosion at a german down but as it turns out there is no such thing in venezuela. today another transformer explosion at the german dam in believe a state coast another massive blackout senator marco rubio an important transformer it system however it was not in a dam much less german my name is again man dum i'm one of the journalists who publish the information. washington insists that nicolas maduro is no longer the
11:10 pm
leader of venezuela the u.s. state department went so far as to break journalists who fail to accept that view. we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one white go as the opposition leader or the south proclaimed president. neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize why dough as interim president of venezuela get this for your complaining the president needs a letter for the but you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well that's all it's like a completely innocent and weak he is he's the easy interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other
11:11 pm
countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the nation so they're fifty countries is not even close that it's the time to act in support of democracy and news coverage of all of them the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage more functional but we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator. of the trumpet ministration introduced a new measures against venezuela this week about blacklisting officials and threatening sanctions against countries that support nicolas maduro r.t. what are you have comments now on those sanctions and how they fit into washington's broader policy objectives. the united states is exceptional literally thou by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in
11:12 pm
venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who are only human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says new nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out
11:13 pm
governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and a zoo l.-a and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and say no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and merica knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un
11:14 pm
a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this
11:15 pm
is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license. to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continents oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand shifty forward arden's or the interventions that are carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s.
11:16 pm
supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. and ethiopian airlines plane has crashed killing all one hundred fifty seven people on board it was heading from ababa to nairobi the victims include thirty five foreign nationals and one thousand staff from organizations linked to the united nations r.t. donald quarter earlier discussed at the tragedy with my colleague union o'neill. ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o. has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors the majority being from kenya canada and the e.u. now this was one of ethiopian airlines regularly scheduled flights although the
11:17 pm
plane crashed only six minutes after takeoff it took emergency services two whole hours to get to the site now this is especially shocking because reports were saying that it only crashed about fifty kilometers south of the takeoff zone at the airport one witness even told the b.b.c. that the result of this delay was because the fire was so strong that people were unable to approach the plane on the crash site the office of the prime minister already reacted to this on twitter they said that they give their condolences to the families of those who lost their lives on this plane the big question is of course the causes what happened to it do we have any kind of going to be investigation of course but but early stages of why this happened yet well that's another surprising detail hours later and we still have no details available as to what caused this crash in the first place it's one of the newest model so that's another aspect we have to bring in here it's actually called the boeing seven thirty seven max and it's a new addition to the theo be in fleet only from back in july of last year and
11:18 pm
a lot of people are drawing parallels to the plane crash that occurred last year in indonesia with lion airs model of the same plane the bowing to the boeing seven thirty seven max and just to give you a couple details about that it was a very similar situation the plane crashed in indonesia only several minutes after taking off and over one hundred eighty passengers were killed now boeing also reacted to that and to this situation back event last year boeing issued a warning year later about this model of aircraft saying that the seven thirty seven max might have a tendency to do a nosedive against the will of the pilot of the plane. and boeing airplanes actually also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. south africa's anti-racism drive has hit a hurdle after incendiary remarks from an m.p.

11:20 pm
division white people make up nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government but both the problem and efforts to solve it are causing animosity across the board. general ideology of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder that one to obliterate one to completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and not producing and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into
11:21 pm
universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i almost think i am in fact i think a tenant white people only everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny the majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is just what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the land even these politicians controlled by money who has money sort of figure out why its when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why
11:22 pm

presence of innocence it's breakin and symbol of equality but this in our constitution what we're asking is for already that is what should always be prime minister are asking for but in fact are not they're not asking for a lot of it but they are asking for supremacism a not a giant way. campaign is seeking the repeal of a two thousand and four law on gender violence under which special courts and rehabilitation centers were created to protect women at risk people on twitter have bitten back coming up with a few of their own alternative a bus slogans accusing the campaign of being very behind the times body confidence advocate joanne be more alice thinks the hitler bus fails to get its point across. has me think it's quite hard to take a group or an organization seriously when they use someone that has inflicted so much pain or many people so it was quite hard to just read the picture understand
11:25 pm
what the organization's trying to depict and i don't think he's the right person to use the base of this campaign specially what they're trying to do that i don't need that we're going to you because it's a bit of an insult to women especially because of what he was about and what he thought about women and us are trying to do and i do agree that something needs to be done but again violence needs. men and women domestic violence is many when it happened both ways so maybe it's not the right present again do you think it might be insulting to men directly or that does it for me one more look at your weekly coming up in about thirty minutes which much international sings. welcome to maximize or light as a survival guide. looking forward to. yanks

the welcome to worlds apart as the syrian the war winds down so does the moral grandstanding around its conduct having spent the last eight years denouncing serious treatment of the rubbles and their families many western powers i'm now eager it's to leave their own citizens in syria including the most vulnerable how come human rights are so absent in the discussions about the fate of isis fighters and especially their children well to discuss that i'm now joined by samuel ramani a doctoral candidate in international relations at the universe there oxford ceremony is going to talk to you thank you very much for your time thank you very much for inviting me now if there is one phrase capturing the western trail of this syrian war that would be. assad killing his own people that was the main promise for his suppose that illegitimacy he's disregard for his own people for the civilians where is this concern for one's own people all for one's own citizens now
11:29 pm
when hundreds of western born women and their children are fleeing areas like boose in syria i think this is a very interesting question because the movement of foreign fighters in the movement of people who are western countries to isis is a relatively unprecedented phenomenon because isis was the largest or territorial control of any terrorist organization has ever been so they are now under the situation where the western countries are effectively making laws on the fly but basically as an ad hoc manner they're saying that these people have loss or a to legitimacy and loss or right this isn't just because they participated in treasonous i have a day they support a group that is blatantly advocated violence against individuals and some of them are the wisest poses of people who are involved for example in the two thousand and fifteen paris bombing or in the thousands and bombing so they're viewed as criminals as a choice between whether it is more safe to leave them there and let the disperse
