11:07 am
. ringback after the incident, no authority came here to investigate. nobody asked us what happened to your new one help. no one came here to morally support us. busy this is not a mistake of america, this is a crime. we've lost her children. the count returned to us. so what mister owner should be restored by us for investigation into the incident. we all see international community to investigate this incident. ah, make no mistake. no, no cherry on the face of the earth or harder to avoid civilian casualties than the united states military. and nobody wants to see innocent life taking
11:08 am
the americans have left us galveston. they came because of their own goals and humiliated in my country. america is not achieved. anything in africa on america has failed in afghanistan, and it has made our people miserable. oh, we will be speaking with more people. both soldiers and civilians whose lives were changed forever by america's war in or continuing special coverage on heard voices throughout the week. well, we've been hearing from the red cross president as well. peter morrow, he's currently in galveston and has been visiting medical facilities and meeting with the new us can government on the one side, you will see all that these are remnants of war. you see these camps,
11:09 am
these vehicles, military vehicles. you see this traction where fighting has taken place, including in some of the city is like guitar and others. and on the other hand, you see an normality of life and normal life. you see that this country is and has been affected by 40 years of war and by poverty. and the 2 together create enormous human period meet. what i can see is that this is a country in bad need of your many terry and assistance of help to stabilize infrastructure and basic services needs international support and when and how political lack there's states will recognize the new i've gone. government is of course, up to them. our interest is that international support comes to
11:10 am
i've gotten this done to the people of, i've got new stuff and in a way which is respectful of the geneva conventions of best you many tavian practices. and i am hopeful that we manage to have acceptable conditions, given some of the assurances that myself and also the coordinator of the community affairs of the us have received this with we had a long conversation with marla about the deputy of the now we're now in government, a very substantial conversation with him self and with some of his closer aids and collaborators in order to ensure that the humanitarian space, which is needed for a good, impactful, and usually human terry and assistance are guaranteed. i think we got
11:11 am
a lot of understanding and also a good sense that we need further dialogues as we move forward. as i see our see, we have worked ways that tale bonds in petty tardies controlled by then over the last 4 d case. and so now in power, we will certainly continue to capitalize on these relations. the u. k. is threatening to withhold millions of pounds promised to france to help tackle the migrant crisis. because paris isn't pulling its weight. that's the claim coming from dining street with the spot emerging as record numbers of people continue to arrive in u. k. beaches having made the crossing from northern france, paris as slum britton's threat. as a serious loss of trust. let's join, shabby. edward dusty not in london to fill in some of the blanks on this. i shot
11:12 am
the issue's been a long running spot between the 2 countries for years and would record numbers of migrants arriving. i'm pretty sure it's firmly back in the spotlight. yes, absolutely. pre to baton and have french counterpart or yes. again in the middle of a war of words and it's all about the escalating crisis on the english channel. it comes as just yesterday alone. 800 people cross the english channel. one of the worlds of busiest shipping line. so today, pretty patel, hosted a meeting with the french interior minister off the preach. patel threatened to cut the 54000000 pounds pledge, a funding pledge to assist in the french operations over across the channel, unless more boats are intercepted now that didn't go down to well with the french or flora to many people. in fact, quite furious across the english channel saying this is not a tool what they signed up for the conditions of the funds when you go,
11:13 am
she did indeed with the british. and it was never on condition of specific targets . that approach would translate into a serious loss of trust in our corporation. while it's been a bit of a tit for tat between the 2 nations for quite some time. now, the french have always said that this is a british problem and that they should be dealing with the issue out source. i. e, are the very countries in which refugees are headed towards your, particularly at this heightened time, as we know the crisis and could talk to free and african stone has seen some millions of people being displaced, many of which are trying to head to the united kingdom so the french is saying it's a british problem. the british are saying it's a french problem and they should actually be trying to intercept these, but it's and turning them back to france. now campaign is here in the united kingdom. they've long. * been saying the answer to all of this is neither what the
11:14 am
french know, bridges say, but actually to try and see safer and legal passages for asylum seekers so that they don't have to risk their lives trying to cross the english channel. but the u . k. government says is working to target people smugglers to try and alleviate the crisis. we remain determined to fix the broken silence system and break the business model of people smugglers who put lives at risk and welcome people through safe and legal routes. while they see a record, 13500 asylum seekers have crossed the english channel in small but it's just a 1000 in the last 2 days. now conservative m p 's here in the united kingdom, beck calling for the home secretary to even break international law and send all of the assign him because of back to france if they've traveled terror legally by boat . now, francais, if the u. k does that, that will be serious consequences and then it's doing all it can to try and prevent
11:15 am
these crossings. they say since january they've intercepted 10000 and brought them back to the french shores. despite the french authorities having to deal with a volved amount of space to police on the beach is over in france. the fact is, we've got 302400 coaches of shore to monitor every day and every night. and it's quite impossible to have place offices every 100 meters because of the length of the shore. now here in the united kingdom, the home secretary in particular has had some rather robust rhetoric over the years, particularly aimed at asylum seekers headed to the united kingdom. in fact, free to baton has now got the reputation of the credit deville and the immigration system for what many people would argue is particularly hostile. we have to look at the beginning of her 10 years. she said the crossings would be an infrequent phenomenon. that last year she promised to shut off the route entirely. and this
11:16 am
year she's pushing through an immigration bill making crossings illegal. meaning that anybody that does head to the united kingdom by boat could be seen to go even to be jailed in fact. but no matter how hostile pre patel's policies or comments are, it's not stopping asylum seekers headed to the united kingdom. it seems that the u . k. is still a fall safe haven either the countries that they are fleeing from. hence this latest influx of asylum seekers here in the united kingdom, but perhaps now the home secretary should change tact, considering the numbers are not coming down. ortiz shelly edward's dusty life in london. thank. shut him. after a lengthy legal bustle, one of america's largest confederate statues has been torn down on the 6 and a half meter told bronze casts of general robert e. lee had towered over richmond in the state of virginia for 130 years plans to
11:17 am
remove it. for an instant, june, last year, during re show justice protest and the week of george floyd's death, or for the move face legal challenges from locals, who said it was a raising history. the monument to the u. s. civil war general was the largest remaining and most recognizable confederate stuff in the country. other similar ones had already been taken to elsewhere enrichment, which was the capital of the secessionist states in the 19th century. according to officials, this statue will be stored up a state own facility until a decision is made on it's ultimate. delighted to welcome onto the proven john morton bon on re professor of medieval philosophy at the university of cambridge. she has been following developments. pleasure to have you, sir. i actually device of subject does the issue boil down essentially,
11:18 am
to the question, who actually has the right to decide how history is remembered? and i'm, i'm not sure that he does really because it, i think you need to think about the product, which statues and, and other such a loyal street names and portraits hung in public places play in each individual country. and i would say in particular about risk, though, i would imagine things not so different in the united states. and i think the pos statues are aware of like, living easily with, with our long history. i'm one of the main points, much statues is we don't take much notice of that. it's rather random business quite who, who gets a statue a certain very well known figures do,
11:19 am
but also certainly do all the minor figures and most people are very concerned who the statues are all or why that. and that's just how it should be. and that's how it should be in a nation with a long history. and so i'm, i'm very much against their being taken down. but it shouldn't be imagined that they're making a statement about history because they were saying, these were wonderful people. this is how we think about history that, that because they've been that those who would oppose the few. those say that historical figures, once revered as heroes of the past, aren't seen that way in the, in the present. when, when more developments emerge, a bite them and therefore should be rude news. what's your response? when you hear something like that, my sons is that it's that they're not there and they shouldn't be taken as being that because they're here that because they've gone for some reason,
11:20 am
people at some stage to be here. but there's no chance that they are that now this is, that was the 1st thing the, the 2nd thing is that in this business of judging people, we have to be very careful not be an acronym, stick in our judgments. we should try to look at people in the moral context of their own times. and quite a lot of the people who will be very much criticized video only being precise because people are bringing down a set of contemporary ideas about about behavior and temp reviews which are just not relevant to me. they think so that's not always the case. and i think, i think there are probably some statues of people who behaved very bad ways even by
11:21 am
the standard time. but if they've been there for a long time, i doesn't, that's reason to take them down and with the best well in the world, the people who want them done, it's not exactly out of sight of mind is that the problem is don't disappear with the statues when they're, when they're just gone. well, no, absolutely not. though i'm, i think to some extent the, the problems are these and i'm talking the business contents, i think not, not, not the less context which has a very difficult history. national relations concern, but i think in britain, to some extent these problems are on manufactured problems. i think, i think within the country, which has dealt very well and they have with, you know, quite quite a large immigration people. there is some people who i think that unfortunately i tried to say the problem which isn't really that
11:22 am
a tool and the statues been quite wrong. i get thrown into that. sometimes i listen to other historians talking about issues and they bring up the point that it's happened many times done the centuries that when viewpoint by the certain stuff it takes hold among the majority of the public, they're tick and done. so it's not necessarily a modern issue, but campaigns are really to, to rewrite history. they've taken whole, largely in western democracies. and people would say that's a sign of free and robust society. i think it's it's a sign of freedom that historians when they're writing about history, think about animal ways. the if you like the life not all right, and history is, is re writing this one doesn't expect need walks of
11:23 am
history remain the same. interpretation. drain the same from generation to generation. but it's a different matter when you're dealing with not the writing history, the positive history and the statues, like all sorts of things, buildings and so on, all the positive history. and that way, i think it's objection to try to get rid of as the point about taking down stature . i think this now is from comfort country. i think written is a place where we, we haven't been inclined to take down factors because we don't, we don't take them all that seriously. just as we haven't been inclined to rename streets, we do go to a lot of companies and find the st. james often change and they often claimed offered day to something which happened 20 or 30 years ago,
11:24 am
which is important that really happens very rarely embrace 11. once we've given a name to a street, we keep it in general. once we put up a statue, we need it that even if nobody has any idea who to talk for somebody, some expert student, nope, no, it's not a name which means all right. and for a very interesting getting your take on this issue. pleasure to have you on the program, john martin. bon honory, professor of medieval philosophy at the university of cambridge. thank you very much. okay, i sound story now. rushes emergencies minister has tragically died while attending training exercises in the arctic. it is, believe us guinea is in the chair of jumped off a cliff into waters to try and rescue a camera man who was also fatally injured. with more on the days developments. ortiz, dunning hawkins. you've got, he's in a chef would be less familiar to those abroad than at home. now,
