10:02 am
the freedom to believe or not believe that you are compassionate was the victim of an islamist terror attack and that the that the. ok well let's get more now from charlotte bin ski joins us from paris good afternoon charlotte what more then do we know about this case because as we've heard the details of the killing himself of being released yes that's right the national antiterrorism prosecuting him fronts has been putting new details about what exactly happened in the days leading up to that brutal capitation of 47 year old history teacher who's been named as a samuel patty now the assailant as you mentioned that who was shot dead after decapitating teach at is an 18 year old of chechen origin was born in moscow he had refugee status here in france and was apparently not prepared is the known to the intelligence service now we do understand that in the ellis leading up to that
10:03 am
atrocity he went to the school and asked people to point out some real patty warts so it does appear that he didn't know the victim himself beforehand we also heard from the national antiterrorism prosecutor about the tweet that was released by the attacker just off to that decapitation at healing read out what that tweet said we were able to verify that ourselves earlier on saturday at the tweet said i executed one of your hellhounds dead to belittle mohammed that's a direct quote from the anti terrorism prosecutor now he also outlined the details of the individuals who've been arrested in connection with this terror attack they into the parents and grandparents of the younger brother of the 18 year old. saillant and also a parent of a student 2 had apparently posted that here on facebook in the last few weeks
10:04 am
calling for the teach it to be dismissed as a result of showing those characters of the prophet mohammed the muslim prophet to do it because for him and we end this stand that in the days leading up to this decapitation there were many threats that were being made against at the 47 year old teacher we've been speaking to some of the parents all children who are also 'd in central patti's costs and they said that students who given the option to leave brought in stay until. he asked muslim children to raise their hand and leave the classroom the plot he did it my son told me he didn't do it to discriminate or to hurt he did it to preserve the children to not show them he explained i'd prefer if you left us with you because i'm going to show a cartoon of the prophet of islam because i don't want to shockey caricatural and i think you see where it was an attack here normal and nothing ever happens here and
10:05 am
now would teachers been decapitated our children non-sale we don't know what to do with your argument that well the reaction has been shock and horrify here the front 7 about this brutal attack on a teacher now the rector of the great great mosque here in paris has said that he was horrified by what's happened and he said that condemnation just isn't enough any rule that action needed to be taken and also it was culmination from the a moment the great mosque in 4 days he described this as ringback being the final behavior and not that of a muslim. whatever the thought the belief even the insult the caricature of the other nothing justifies the fact of killing the so it is a mortal capital sin to kill a person like that to cut his throat like that all because it showed caricaturists of the prophet. well there have been there been 2 terror attacks here in france
10:06 am
in the last 3 weeks and both of those attacks related to the images of the slim profit and it come this france is trying to do you the issue of separatism here now present medical an outline what he wants to do with the draft you'll be presenting it before the end of 2020 he said that france would fight back against any form of separatism and that end any deviation away from france's secular values wouldn't be tolerated he talked about liberating from foreign influences we know that dr drew is going to close a scrutiny or schools and associations serve religious communities and that arabic will now be true in mainstream schools rather than in mosques that law is sent to you by the end of the year but it comes as polls have been giving us and in planning all walked many muslims feel one poll recently showed that almost sweet
10:07 am
quarters of those who responded who are under the age of $25.00 said that they would put their religion above that of the republic this attack has unleashed a huge fear now particularly amongst teaches you may have to give similar classes to that of several patty when they talking about freedom of speech and they wonder now if they too are in the firing line through doing that and this is even raised more questions abound what's being done at the moment when it is actually enough to prevent this sort of radicalization that leads to such extreme brutality. ok thank you charlotte mashallah been ski there with more details there from paris where i think we can show you live pictures now of the same of the attack and many people there have been laying flowers where the attack unfolded you can see quite a crowd there already today no cause to say the instant shows had to mock. see is
10:08 am
under threat in france. for human human madness that's where we are today in france it's unfortunate just a lesson just a caricature frankly it's hard to imagine that someone could do it just for that a drawing a simple drawing if we can no longer see what we want to see for democracy has been crushed by religion by politics. this really it's really just it's a pity that the attacker was killed because he should have been judged for his actions and it's a pity that we can no longer teaches we wish and enjoy freedom of speech every time there is this kind of reprisal it's related to religion and that's a problem in a secular country where right from political analyst eric the hague believes the clash between secular and religious values in france needs to be addressed there is a program of very deep problem between islamic groups in our conception of the security reason. as we see it encrypts reconsider of the
10:09 am
traditions is a intimate affair and a private affair and we cannot mixed the religion and the life in the street in the city there is a role in preparation but. a lot of people are considering that this low is too shy . is not proportional need to the very quick move or for the president to put the spot where the tragedy happened is an important thing or a number of confines of all of this conscience of descendant conscience of the dems or. the powerful explosions rocked the capital of the disputed nagorno-karabakh region overnight that is despite last weekend ceasefire deal reached between armenia and there's a bizarre air raid sirens were reportedly heard throughout the night but the extent of the damage is still. unclear rockets are also believed to struck the yes areas
10:10 am
surrounding the city these are pictures from one of the nearby villages where injuries were also reported. fighting has now fled in a number of regions since the conflict 1st erupted back into life the 2 sides are trading accusations of attacks blaming each other for civilian casualties and also damage inflicted meanwhile as a johns president says his country has reclaimed 3 cities in the disputed territory something though armenia denies he was down off the porch now and how life has been affected for those now finding themselves living in a zone of conflict. this place could very easily be mistaken for the front line of nagorno karabakh but it isn't it's a small sleepy village of. also commonly known as red bazaar and last night it was battered by a very fire i'm standing in one of the craters left by the bombardment it's about 8 meters in diameter. it was about 7 o'clock i wanted to park the car in the
10:11 am
yard because the bombs had been dropped there. the cast iron explodes and splinters everywhere with a radius up to a few 100 metres today for example my house wasn't damaged but our neighbors windows were smashed someone's roof was broken already used to it. like all villages of nagorno karabakh red bazaar resembles a ghost town it's not the 1st time that it's been bombed in this escalation there's also a monotonous rhythm made by the sounds of artillery fire coming from over the horizon but those who have chosen to stay are saying that they have gotten used to this new and gruesome soundtrack to their lives has this new kind of life can be during war everyone hides in basements even if a bomb drops a kilometer away all the houses shake we know that it's close to us of course it's
10:12 am
scary especially when the bombs drop nearby but i'm not going to leave anyway all the youngsters and men stayed here some of them are serving in the army depending on their age. but here it's just an echo of the fighting that is raging some 50 kilometers to the south from here around the town of drought there is no way of saying for sure who is in control of this heavily contested region which is considered to be the gateway into new going to karabakh thing is it's one of the biggest problems about covering this conflict the lack of opportunities to independently verify the claims of both sides but one fact is certain the fighting there is absolutely brutal despite the ceasefire that was announced a whole week ago but as of now there's no mechanism of enforcing the truce on the ground and as long until this mechanism is implemented the fighting one sees by itself and we've done our reporting from the going to karabakh r.t.
10:13 am
meanwhile the conflict is again spilled beyond the confines of the disputed territory has been john claims that 13 people were killed during shelling in the early hours of saturday morning more than 50 people were injured and as beyond 2nd largest city of ganja as sensual buildings were reportedly hit the syrian president claims it was a war crime and it's bad to respond militarily with another as. repeatedly came under fire this way you accuse yet of and of carrying out the attacks a local journalist from his vision sent this report. i mean is it told to region of his or vision it is safe here now but a few days ago simply turning gold old camera lights would have restyle lives with guns firing at any source of flight and the regions of dark. and go on boy team and artillery fire for armenian armed forces for example will be in the miscue for religion of tartar district we hear shells exploding no more than
10:14 am
a few 100 meters from us fighting continues along the forms line and surveillance are called to endure mido for example yesterday during a funeral procession show exploded at a girl if you are killing 5 people in one link another 5 shells he also residential buildings and then when ruled people here in charge are relieved by their nerves never knowing when shells are start falling again. torture and rape or crimes undercover agents in the u.k. would be allowed to commit under a new bill that has passed the highest of commons is still needs approval from the upper chamber though an amendment which was intended to limit the list of crimes was rejected. the amendments would give the intelligence services the protections they need but stop short of giving them the cart blanche authorization to carry out the heene as crimes in the name of the state they have happened too often in the past while the bill in question was introduced last month and seems to commit
10:15 am
certain criminal acts by authorities in the u.k. they include the police intelligence services armed forces and others however the government insists it doesn't grant a license to kill political commentator anthony whether there is there without any amendments british citizens will be at risk. for the happens if this extra hours given schoolies government social services the person opus r.h. . what will the jury so far it's not certainty are a save the hospital. are much sufficient amendments so the they want recesses of this country or are protected because this is. a very well you. grow your state's power. with no no accountability are very old. the governments use the router as get you to
10:16 am
attack civil liberties if there is agree since this would be very not the resistance is concord 5 in the afternoon here in moscow we're going to take a quick break more nice and to me it's. you know when the pandemic 1st hit back in february the question i posed to the global audience was will this be a crisis sufficient enough to override the ability of central banks to paper over the crisis because for the last 30 years every crisis whether it's a market crash or the 2000 subprime crash or a hurricane or ecological or population or wars always been met with paper printing by the central banks as long as the interest rates keep going down there's
10:17 am
no penalty for issuing all that paper as we've seen now for 40 years the interest rates have gone down so now here we are in the end of the year the question again is is the crisis big enough to not be able to be fixed by central bank money printing. again cases the surgeon again in the united states friday saw 70000 new infections recorded the highest figure since july the pandemic york has remained in the top 5 states when it comes to cases president trump has laid the blame squarely at the
10:18 am
feet of the governor andrew cuomo new york it has been the worst of the been the whole country $40000.00 deaths new york has done very badly we've got to be really if your job cuomo well new york's governor claims a lot of progress has been made in the situation has been stabilized but just like trump many do blame local authorities for the chaos of the last few months explains . they call it the big apple the city of dreams the capital of capitalism but 7 months into the pandemic new york city is not doing too well and local government is catching the blame it's incredible how little we have learned in 7 months well they better start learning pretty fast at this point we've seen gun violence on the rise rapidly the f.b.i. and the u.s. attorney are looking to intervene my perception is is that this the city in certain other pockets has become an environment which is too permissive for armed criminal
10:19 am
offenders to walk the streets at the peril of the public in addition to that we've got the new york city police department they are bracing for massive underestimate following the presidential election this november 3rd will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era we should anticipate and prepare for protests growing in size frequency and intensity leading up to the election and likely into the year 2021 broadway is staying shut down until summer of 2021 lots of lost jobs and lots of lost profits furthermore the historic roosevelt hotel has been forced to close there are no tourists to book their room now other hotels have been used to house homeless people and keep them off the streets during the pandemic a public health measure however residents of those neighborhoods are not thrilled about their new neighbors and they are suing the city the city has reacted

recklessly and to radically by repeatedly uprooting these individuals based on political pressure hospitalizations for covert 19 are now starting to rise once again local officials have a lot of problems on their hands and for every problem they solve 10 more seem to pop up a look up and r.t. new york. now israel pushed forward this week with plans for thousands of settlement homes in the west bank it does come less than a month after israel bahrain and the u.a.e. agreed to normalize relations the arab league has slammed israel's latest settlement move the netanyahu government's insistence on moving forward with settlement activity to satisfy the extreme right wing reflects its rejection of this solution and even its commitment to destroy the chances of achieving it in the future. expansion plans are the biggest since 2012 according to israeli n.g.o.s
10:21 am
peace now israel claims historical and biblical ties to the west bank where around half a 1000000 israeli settlers live alongside around 2700000 palestinians earlier this year israel agreed to freeze the formal accusation of the west bank under the us middle east plan spearheaded by president trump however palestinians playing a deal actually greenlights israeli settlement activity meanwhile human human rights un human rights observers are still being denied access to israel and the palestinian territories back in february israeli authorities announced the country was suspending ties with the un human rights watchdog as after a report was published naming more than 100 israeli companies working illegally in west bank settlements. but absence of international stop from the occupied territories a highly irregular situation will negatively impact the nod billeted to carry out a mandate we continued to who but this situation will be resolved soon and we're
10:22 am
actively engaged with various relevant and concerned to that and the director of human rights watch in israel a mushy k. believes the severing of ties between israel and the un human rights watch told face in with the country's longstanding policy. this is clearly being done as an effort to muzzle documentation and advocacy around israel systematic repression of palestinians and i should say it's not a one off issue i was deported myself after being more than 2 and a half years based on the ground as human rights watch as israel palestine director based on our work on the ground as well and it's part of a long standing trend and it's part of a sustained assault on the human rights movement while the u.s. has historically always you know shielded israel from accountability and turned a blind eye to it buz this us administration has taken it a step further and even giving the green light for these abuses to continue sort of should come to no surprise that we see settlement activities at unprecedented
10:23 am
levels historically and continued efforts to entrench this discriminatory reality. i washington and moscow a stand in disagreement over the extension of the major control treaty the u.s. has pushed back against russia's proposal to extend it without preconditions for another year. as more details. as the clock ticks on the last remaining u.s. russian arms control treaty the united states and russia seem to be locked in a stalemate while most are suggesting an unconditional 5 year extension of the treaty the us wants quite extensive changes which must go as called quite simply unrealistic now speaking early on friday president putin made a strong call to save the pact when you're used to losing i have a suggestion to prolong the existing treaty without any conditions for at least one year in order to have the opportunity to hold talks on all the matters regulated by
10:24 am
such treaties and not to leave all the countries in the world interested in the preservation of strategic stability without such a fundamental document as district did you come on this reduction treaty and things between the 2 have escalated quite quickly with the us even responding with threats if the conditions are not less. the united states is serious about arms control that will keep the entire world safe we hope that russia will re-evaluate its position before a costly arms race ensues now the issue is that washington wants a framework for a new trilateral treaty that covers all nuclear warheads and includes those of china in the future something which russia has objected to in the new strategic arms reduction treaty otherwise known as the new start treaty was signed in 2010 by u.s. president barack obama and russian president dmitri medvedev and the pact limits each country to no more than $1550.00 deployed nuclear warheads and $700.00 deployed missiles and bombers and envisages sweeping on site inspections to verify
10:25 am
compliance but the treaty is set to expire in february 2021 so time is really of the essence here and the lack of an agreement and of course the tone of rhetoric between the 2 sides has raised concerns within the u.n. it is imperative that the russian federation and united states of america extend with. the new start treaty for the duration of 5 years for the sake of all of our security must return to a common past wars nuclear designs now as you may remember last year saw the breakdown of the 9 $187.00 intermediate range nuclear forces treaty so the new start is the only nuclear arms control pact between the 2 sides that remains so needless to say the stakes are extremely high what's going to be taken in washington. in washington would your judgment 4. increase the. existence of all these weapons it's. a low point i think there were points there
