$6000000000.00 a year of prison camp which is good so when you live where. you don't care anymore now why cares about your so your care might. be us confirm this carrying out the 1st test of a cruise missile previously abandoned on the terms of an arms control deal signed between moscow and washington over 30 years ago. also to come this hour u.s. attorney general william barr sucks the direct from the prison staff to the suicide jeffrey. we discussed the conditions of the jail where he took his own life with his former lawyer and it's fundamentally wrong with that is that jeffrey upstream did not belong or not or silly to begin with. and has been the field the british social media network aimed at young muslims as part of the u.k. government plan to tackle radicalization.
3:01 am
hello good morning it's 10 o'clock here in moscow you're watching r.t. international the us has conducted its 1st test of a 500 kilometer cruise missile a type of previously banned for over 30 years under a now defunct arms control treaty between washington and moscow. has more. well we have official word from the pentagon that indeed there has been a test of a missile that would have violated the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty that treaty has now expired and the usa has conducted a test of a missile that would have violated it here's what we heard from the pentagon the department of defense conducted to fly test of the conventionally configured ground cruise missile the u.s. west coast sunday the test missile exited its ground mobile launcher and accurately in practice target after more than $500.00 flight now the test was conducted on san
3:02 am
nicolas island off the coast of california we understand furthermore that the test was announced on august 2nd the very day that the i.n.f. treaty expired now the official reason for the united states withdrawing from the i.n.f. treaty was that they accused russia of violating that agreement now russia has said they did not and denies violating this agreement we also heard from russian president vladimir putin who emphasized that russia won't be the 1st to boost its military if the usa were not to escalate following the withdrawal of the treaty this is what the russian president said if we receive verified information that the u.s. has finished developing and started producing these systems russia will be forced to begin its own full scale development of similar missiles so even after the united states withdrew from the i.n.f. treaty we did not see an escalation from russia however the united states has proceeded to test this missile that would have violated the treaty now it's
3:03 am
important to remember that the i.n.f. treaty was signed in 1987 and it was a key moment in the scaling down in deescalation and eventually end of the cold war however that i.n.f. treaty that banned nuclear and missiles of a certain length is no longer in effect now russia has repeatedly reached out to the united states for dialogue around this issue but so far the conversation hasn't seemed to start. well peter because nic is from the american eucharist studies institute and he says that the u.s. has been pulling back from arms control treaties for years united states has said that this is not nuclear capable and the united states is planning for another test probably in november this one is somewhere between 508000 kilometers a range but the one that they're testing in november it's miscreants 300-4000
3:04 am
kilometers or range that's another one this is a very unfortunate moves that have been going on for the past couple years at least well we can actually dated back to 2001 with the announcement that the u.s. is going to clear the a.b.m. treaty there's only one major nonproliferation treaty remaining the new start treaty which ends in 2021 and the united states has already indicated that it will almost certainly out of that one also or not when they do that one which means we are on the verge of nuclear anarchy. with the news this morning the u.s. attorney general william barra sacked the director of u.s. prisons after the death of disgraced billionaire jeffrey epstein the circumstances of the convicted paedophile suicide spark concerns over conditions at the jail where he was kept another high profile inmate bedrock baron jack quinn el chapo guzman has also raised the alarm to about life in the prison when we spoke to. mark
3:05 am
furniture to also represented epstein. the conditions to which he was subjected would buckle even the knees of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like chapo was alleged to have been he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done so one would be comparing apples and oranges to liken the 2 to each other but yet their conditions of confinement were strikingly similar and there's something
3:06 am
fundamentally wrong with that and what's fundamentally wrong with that is that geoffrey abstain did not belong in that facility to begin with. just my own personal opinion it wouldn't surprise me to learn of anything that might have happened with jeffrey epstein and in my view at that in that facility the real story the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's a it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything so the real shock here is that we don't hear about deaths at pretrial oppressive onerous pretrial detention facilities like the m.c.c. more often. any of us could one day find ourselves rightly or wrongly on
3:07 am
on the. business and of of the united states department of justice and nobody nobody sued should be subjected to the conditions that epstein was exposed to for many reasons one of which is that compromises your mental and physical functioning and you can't assist adequately in preparing your own defense and it crushes people we don't really know what happened to mr epstein but but certainly i believe personally that being a locked in a facility like that under extraordinary conditions would logically wreak havoc with one's mind and body so i certainly i certainly believe that they personally that they could have played a role absolutely i mean i think we would be foolish to to deny that but again one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is
3:08 am
how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge to do that epstein did not belong locked up pending trial and he didn't belong in a hellhole like that before he had been convicted of anything. now a social media network aimed young british muslims has turned out to be possibly u.k. government counterterrorism program on the story from london his saskia. what is a social news platform the word thing a popular used to describe someone who's acutely aware of social justice issues especially racism uses bright colors and has a martin bold design it's a space for political engage young people to come together and discuss the burning issues of the day. were created for us to eat.

just lies really which is you. know topic as off limits out woke climate change beacon to some gender issues kept the something for everyone across its pages has around 73000 followers and one of its most successful videos has hit 1700000 of you mark but scrolling through its pages one can see that its content is primarily centered around the experience of british muslims and their identity and politics so alongside islamic holiday well wishes you'll also find debates on different perspectives of terrorism for example but no one has an issue with the content of what with it sponsor because the report has just revealed that the platform is the covert arm of the u.k. government counter-terrorism strategy now the home office hasn't been particularly forthcoming with details about its involvement and what it did it meant it has
3:10 am
material from the project or if you start any question about the motives it's meant or indeed the methods that it uses electrically on the grounds of national security and its short statement on the issue didn't really help clarify the issue any thought that we've committed to using all the tools available to counter the threat from terrorism in the u.k. the home office works in partnership with a range of organizations to reduce vulnerability to organized criminal extremist and to. throats in the u.k. it's not just the white a public road users who want told to the government's role the report also reveals that people who were invited on to work can actually featured in discussions that want formed it was part of a home office and they should have an initiative called prevent that is cause great control to see since its implementation back in 2003 and it's been called nothing
3:11 am
more than state sanctioned spying targeting the muslim community is probably unsurprising them that given the revelation that work is related to that very project the backlash against it was quite strong this complete absence of transparency is just one of many reasons why there is such little trust between muslim communities and government so angry about home office this is work situation i can't articulate myself how can the government expect muslims not to have trust issues with our government. the betrayal of trust that we face at every level of every institution include an online spaces media platforms arts and cultural events civic life and everything else is honestly something i think everyone concerned with racism and all needs to be screaming about this is urgent a recent segment on discussed tackling fake news the irony i'm sure is not lost on many now who look at the platform and see it as
3:12 am
a minute factor brand filled with content promoting the secret agenda on behalf of the british government so there are questions being raised here especially in a country which was once voted as the most transparent in the world suster taylor r t in london. where the zinc media group which runs wolk told us it is proud of the work it undertakes for its clients meanwhile facebook is expanding its fake news crackdown to its instagram platform users will be able to flag what they deem to be suspicious posts and the content can be marked fake or for some of then be deleted from searches while experts assess its status now for example suppose that somebody poses a false statement online such as this one with the hash tag math expert now if somebody flags it up is false it will stop appearing under that hash tag however
3:13 am
social media privacy advocate bill he bill news story is skeptical the safeguard will prove to be a success. it's when you get into pictures and primarily with video where things start to get really really difficult and at this moment in time the automated tools that they're using cannot tell the difference between a cat a dog and a terrorist at this moment in time the having certainly with lydia on facebook platform to use an enormous number of an army of people who sit and do nothing but look through these videos to moderate them and to recognize them with taking this sort of technique to instagram which is largely a picture based medium and obviously the same challenges are going to face them and if they haven't got the resources to absolutely get on top of things on facebook you have to question whether they've also got resources to police in spawn as well so i think what we need to see is accuracy and authenticity. and more than 30 children south of france have been diagnosed with arsenic poisoning after
3:14 am
a flood back in october released toxic mud from a closed off gold mine parents now though are worried more children could be affected. in october 28th away flooded the entire school courtyard and carried away all the walls that were here after this the yard was covered with a layer of sedimentary mud and unfortunately 6 months later in april we unexpectedly found out that the level of arsenic was abnormally high then the team from the geological research office conducted an independent examination and said that now despite the conclusion of the previous team there are no more traces of arsenic on the.
3:15 am
on it eventually we were worried day and night our boy had very strong symptoms but when the results were given to us at the hospital the doctors told us the symptoms were related to the levels of arsenic we're still at by did zephyr missives do authorities also just simply swept under the carpet while there is more and more obvious evidence that there was a natural sanitary problem and. my son got arsenic poisoning at school and in the valley of or b.l. where everyone was a to risk of infection and especially my son because he suffered from their facts of the flooding and school yard. weekend of protests in hong kong we'll take

3:18 am
accounts were deliberately and specifically tempting to sow political discord in hong kong including undermining the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the crack. the protest movement in hong kong started backing the draft legislation to missing the extradition of suspects to mainland china that is since rule of the political issue of the last 11 weeks when these have frequently turned violent and putting she's in take gas and rubber bullets against the protesters now the latest rally happened on sunday and organizers claim 1700000 people turned up to that one. takes a close in to what's motivating the protests. freedom fair elections democracy it's words like these you'll find throughout the western media coverage of the protests in hong kong but the reality of it is all much more complicated was.
3:19 am
it's not just politics motivating the violence racial slurs against people from mainland china can be heard throughout the crowds and seen graffitied on official buildings protesters have also been seen brandishing the infamously racist pepe the frog me an internet hate symbol and this is enough phobic violence has even spilled over to protests in other countries i. was. writing. this anti china extremism comes from a concept called hong kong exceptionalism the idea that hong kong has more in common with the west than with china because of its british colonial past and that ideologies it here in sa are not exactly shy about their love for all things anti china 6 6.

despite all the american flags and anthem singing donald trump says he had no idea why protests were being blamed on the u.s. but his cabinet might have an explanation since they've been meeting with one of the opposition's main icons jimmy lie. appreciation lies a self-made billionaire who's made a huge mark on hong kong's opposition movement he landed himself in hot water with beijing back in 2012 when his newspaper published an ad portraying pregnant chinese women as locusts and he's very open about his feelings for american values we need to know that america is behind us but back in our some america is showing moral authority because we are the only place in china which shares your values and is fighting the same battle you have with china but there's another younger and not so rich rebel leader at play here too joshua wong a fresh 22 year old face of revolution

a face loved in many corridors of washington to marco rubio was so in all he nominated wong for a nobel peace prize leave it to washington to nominate a leader of violent protests for peace when it suits them agenda the u.s. is very determinately supporting these protesters every arm of the corporate media. radio television social media is is raising them to and always referring to them as pro-democracy protesters where they're not at all this has nothing to do with democracy and they are determined to sabotage in every way that they can any normal relations between china with hong kong and it it is creating intentionally a great deal of confusion among young people who have been pulled into this against their own interests but we have sent request an alleged links that we've

3:24 am
and so it's all basically representing the same elite interests china sees this as an aggressive move by the u.s. to try to provoke them into a war the chinese basically up and say that the u.s. is going to be at fault here because they're not being consistent and not honoring the promises that were made in previous administrations and so this big departure is going to be on the u.s. and that's where they want to place the blame here if there is any military escalation that happens. now u.s. democratic lawmaker has apologized after pictures showing the mock assassination of president donald trump went viral illinois state senator martin sunda val's says an entertainment hired for one of his fundraiser events was behind the well the pictures were posted online by the sense of supporters who were at the fund raising 2 in the photos a man is pointing a gun at someone wearing
