blood death and tears the six killed and dozens injured as a peaceful all someday in russia's volgograd is shattered by a suicide attack on a passenger bus. we report from a city in mourning and the aftermath of a blast caused by a career jihad it's. also into day's headlines demanding answers it's. the u.s. must explain why these people have been killed civilian casualties a lack of transparency and no justice for the victims on his seem to national lashes out at washington for he's a troll and war in pakistan saying some of the killings amounts to walk quietly.
and norway becomes the latest country to sound alarm over its citizens joining this . as all slow launches a global fund for t.v. teenage girls to have gone to syria to fight alongside the islamists. international news and comment live from moscow this is the with me you know thanks for joining us. grant is mourning the victims of a suicide bomb attack on a passenger bus that's claimed the lives of six and injured dozens witnesses described a war zone like scene of scattered body parts and blotted survivors unable to comprehend what had just happened to france is in the southern russian city of horace. at this point investigators according to four people involved in this case
they point to thirty year old aida i see all of us from dagestan a career jihad it as the suicide bomber in the case and three men also involved one dimitri sokolove who is who reported husband was on his way to moscow and then two men waiting for them there from dagestan both of them wanted for twin terrorist attacks in dagestan back in two thousand and twelve so police are on the hunt for those three men at this point now where reports say that she got on the bus shortly after that is when the the explosion took place at the back of the bus. shop will t.n.t. and a grenade remnants were work out at the site which six dead and more than forty injured many of them very severely the local hospitals were inundated with very graphic wounds witnesses say that there were severed limbs and severe burns many of those cases were sent to moscow for further treatment i would thought an eyewitness
we spoke to who came up on the the situation just moments after here's what he's got to say about what happened to her from there were many ambulances and police around people getting out from the coast to help they were pulling people out of the bus giving the water sharing their first aid kits what shocks me is that there was one woman still inside the bus satele covered in blood and i couldn't tell whether she was dead or life the bus route starts at the city's heart center also pulses near the university so the bus was full of home patients and students also a large bomb was found near a shopping mall in dagestan by anti-terrorist police and what they're really trying to piece together right now is why this bombing took place here in volgograd and not as it was originally planned in moscow also last night and. islamic prayer center was firebombed here in volgograd investigators are looking at that as well
so there are many pieces to this puzzle that finally need to come together before we get a clear picture of how this was carried out and why it was done. and were disguised by a show of terror threats where alexander doran who is a doctor of law and a visiting lecturer at several u.s. universities and he told us terrorism is no longer a ritual matter but an international concern. i can tell you that you know we are dealing with this kind of a terrorist international we cannot divide what's happening in america in boston or in oklahoma city and then you know to five well we cannot separate it from what has just happened in volgograd or from what happened in they'd all be just several weeks ago we were seen boat and this is very unfortunate and we need to deal with it this is something you know about happens on the kind of irregular basis this is not the first time this is not the last time but once again on the way in the same boat and unlike just several years that you went ahead with school and you
know with expression one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter i can see now that no matter what if somebody is added to to russia and the russian government will have a terrorist attacks in russia this is a terrorist attack not just that against the russian people it's against it this is a terrorist attack against everybody and our web scene is collating all the latest for you on the terror attack in volgograd for extensive background information eyewitness reports pictures and footage go to r.t. dot com.
many of the deaths in the u.s. drone strikes in pakistan are unlawful and amounts to war crimes claims honesty international a new damning report released today looks at recent incidents and slaves horrific examples of the killing of children and elderly the human rights organization wants justice for the victims of unlawful strikes and calls for greater transparency and a far investigation and there could be a lot to look at and it all began in two thousand and four when president bush was in office two thousand and six was the deadliest year in his presidency while almost one hundred of civilians were killed just by two strikes two years later drones became more frequently used and than barack obama became president in two thousand and nine that was the year where the biggest number of killing one hundred and sixty two in the next twelve months the strikes almost doubled there were more than one hundred of them and the program goes on the latest attack in pakistan
happened just over a month ago so we can see the lion's share of drone strikes were carried out by the obama administration and around a thousand civilians have been killed including two hundred children that the total number of deaths is more than three thousand. more details now from this account of . the predator drone remotely controlled and heavily armed it's the weapon of choice in the cia's under cleared war in pakistan that's where the u.s. is believed to have launched more than three hundred strikes since two thousand and four the target suspected taliban and qaeda al. militants the white house says better drones then boots on the ground and justifies the covert program as both affective and legal america does not take strikes to punish individuals we act against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the american people not so according to amnesty international in a damning new report the human rights group warns u.s.
drone strikes could amount to war crimes documents recent killings in pakistan's northwest tribal areas and the lack of transparency surrounding drones this is a secret program in fact in our case we've found at least in some cases they've clearly killed civilians and some of these cases might be war crimes that really concerns us one such case is that of sixty eight year old. killed by a u.s. drone last october she was picking vegetables with her grandchildren when that attacks took place a double strike the children miraculously survived. first it was so then i heard that. the first hit and the second hit my cousin. but her grandmother's body was pulverized these missile fragments are all that remain amnesty documents other such cases but its main point the need for transparency and accountability the u.s. must explain why these people have been killed people who are clearly civilians
must provide justice to these people compensation it must investigate those responsible for those killings the u.s. continues to give very little public information about the drone program but it will face more international pressure later this week that is because on friday the u.n. general assembly will be debating the use of remotely piloted aircraft now in a separate report a u.n. investigation looked at thirty three drone strikes around the world not just in pakistan that violated international humanitarian law and also resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties that report also calling for more transparency and accountability from the united states reporting from moscow i'm lucy catherine of. and i also spoke to the head of the drones report and she says people in pakistan fear the unmanned aircraft the same way as they do the taliban and al qaida. what we have done is conduct painstaking research into
a specific time period in pakistan where u.s. has carried out drone strikes and that's a very recent eighteen months in a very particular part of the country in north waziristan this is one of the most neglected remote areas of the world. ordinary residents suffer abuse from armed groups also disappearances and torture obviously detention for the populist on armed forces on top of that out of the skies. they are being attacked by u.s. drone strikes and in some cases it is that some of those some of the killings have been unlawful that amount to extradition executions or war crimes we contacted the u.s. government in advance of our report being published. they referred us to cia referred us to the white house and the white house referred us to u.s. president barack obama's speech on may twenty third team which made promises of transparency we've seen little change to date. the spy be outrage against the use
of the unmanned aircraft washington refuses to acknowledge any unlawful killings that's why some are experts are calling for an international investigation into dry air strikes. the u.s. has a consistent position in refusing to allow its highest officials whether political or military officials to be held accountable for the consequences of wars that are themselves fundamentally violations of international law international law in the united states unfortunately is too often only applied to other countries and not to ourselves one of the big problems with the drone wars that we don't have good information it may be that there are war crimes involved if there are. decisions made to use drone strikes when other options are available if decisions are made to use drone strikes against settings where there are known civilians they may well be work rhymes there needs to be a thorough investigation and what we've seen is that the u.s.
government is not prepared to investigate itself so the question of international investigations whether it's in the context of the international criminal court to which of course the united states is not a member or whether it's in the context of amnesty international the united nations other agencies all of these need to be explored and used. you know watching all see will bond after a very short break with more including. children in one of the richest countries of the world are living in a type of war zone the u.k.'s most vulnerable are in danger of being left in the cold as the charity is protecting them by threatening to both closure. in washington falls up with its age old ally france their historic friendship undermined by the latest n.s.a. spying scandal suggesting millions of french people have fallen stopped the full details in just a few modern. dramas
the chance to be ignored. stories others who refuse to notice. the faces change the world writes never. grow. old picture of today's new no longer from around the globe. locally. but all told i'm a language of war but i will only react to situations i have read the reports for unlike the pollution from a no i will leave it to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month to say get it looser carryin a car is all your dog is no god. no job no more weasel words.
when you made a direct question be prepared for a change when you draw a line you should be ready for a. printout of speech and little down the freedoms of caution. this is r.c. welcomed by the number of european muslims joining the ranks of islamist militants in a series growing every month now norway has launched a hunt for two teenage sisters have allegedly gone to the war torn country to find the regime alongside rebel forces to all of the looks now are the dangerous trend which aspiring fears such people would return to their home country as well trained and ready to carry out terrorist act. the two sisters age sixteen and nineteen left a message for their family saying that they were going to syria because they
believe that muslims in the country were being attacked from all directions now the family who haven't been named are cooperating with the authorities to try and track these two young women down now they've been it's reported that they are for all somali descent that they came to norway in the year two thousand they weren't particularly religious that in fact over the past few weeks they've been arguments between the the older sister and the mother of the family over the older sisters want to wear the niqab so norwegian authorities looking into this to try and track down these two women who are believed to be in turkey trying to cross the border into syria they say they have evidence that they've been spotted in that area security offices working with the norwegian security services are saying that we are seeing a growing trend in organized groups trying to to recruit and radicalize muslims muslim people in the in the west in europe and across europe we have seen cases
where by anti assad fighters have turned up with with passports from across the european union norway itself believes that around forty of its citizens are currently fighting in the area one of the largest groups from europe that's made their way to fight against assad troops have been from right here in germany it's believed that in the north of syria there's a camp that's been labeled the german camp by newsmagazine around two hundred german citizens most of them from the north rhine-westphalia area believed to be there the numbers well the numbers speak for themselves it's believed that are over one thousand european fighters. forces in syria right now and that's gone up from two hundred fifty from this time last year so if it does seem that if these these organized groups are recruiting that they're certainly getting more and more people to their cause. and remember we've got more stories online for you including journalists united as high ranking u.k.
media representatives for a petition demanding the release of a british camera man detained in russia with a greenpeace all reprocessed in the arctic. on the russian sibling of santa clause means the olympic flame on the latest stage of the torch relay read more on the sporting symbols voyage. right to see. first street. and i think the jury. on our reporters would. be in the cold. on. an opera were in front so revelations the n.s.a. has spied on millions of its citizens has forced washington to make one of his
strongest admissions yet regarding its surveillance practices phone conversation between barack obama and president francois hollande the white house conceded the latest claims raise legitimate questions and just a single month the agency intercepted more than seventy million calls and text messages printing to join the growing club of those urging tough on privacy laws in the e.u. the french leader is planning to push the issue of the european summit later this week e.u. lawmakers have already boxed new laws to protect online information which would outlaw most data transfers to third countries including the u.s. and paul murphy and i shared his view on the new regulation for us. spies want to spoil you spoil you even though it already is outside of the law and it will make it. more difficult open because what's happened in terms of the mass of spying that's taken place so far that's been facilitated by major multinational
corporations like facebook like google in contravention of any sense of the right to privacy the right to data protection and so if these regulations go through and i think they likely will at the transfer of european data to all their authorities such as the u.s. authorities third country authorities will be made illegal i don't believe that these spying operations are taking place in my interests in other people's interest in art and or across europe or across the world and i think what's happening it's there's a whipping all of a hysteria and attempt to use that hysteria and to undermine the rights of people to privet see the rights of people to have their data protected. the fresh and i say scandal house caused friction between historic allies and as american political cartoonist and columnist ted rowland believes the damage could well be long lasting it's pretty hard to undo listening to tens of millions of
phone calls isn't it at this point i think what's shocking the french is not just the extent to which the united states is spying on their people but also the fact that they consider themselves to be us down and if this is the way the us treats its friends well what's the point of being a friend this creates tension between two countries that like to think of themselves as allies and it's it's difficult for for the french to know exactly to what extent what they're doing is being listened to watched spied upon so you know it it's hard to be friends with people you don't trust. terms of thousands of youngsters are subjected to domestic violence in the u.k. with the government's child protection agency is struggling with their work load in times of biting budget cuts he has visited an organization that is trying to take up the slack for their doors could also soon be closed leaving the nation's most
vulnerable was nowhere to turn nor now reports these are the children of kids company one in five has been shot at all stabbed hot have witnessed shootings all stabbings in the last year the lucky ones come to camilla batmanglij is charity to be pieced back together these children in one of the richest countries of the world are living in a type of war zone that is on estates they see people stepped outside their window they're afraid of firearms they go up on the staircase in their estate they don't know who's round the corner who's going to attack them they get trapped in lifts and get raped and so on children like that says camilla without the right help become incredibly violent taking their revenge on themselves or on society by sixteen florence was
a homeless drug and alcohol abuse she grew up in turn ignored and casually abused by her mother social services tries to take me away from our parents. i remember mark foley. hit me with a tree branch of science called. called social services. and then i don't know i think i cried i'm sorry in the mirror and they were like checking me and i said i want to stay at home and never had. a call child line in school forced me to call child line because their lives or burns on the inside. and then nothing happened after that conversation only kids company pursued florence texting and phoning to make sure she was ok over a period of nearly a year a continuity of care that traumatized youngsters desperately need and getting from the government child mental health and children's social services hasn't changed since the victorian times we renew our railways we renew our airports we renew our
hospitals but actually we haven't bothered to renew you really the structures that deal with almost one rouble kids and make them fit for purpose repeated requests for a government response to that yielded nothing about his company i probably would have five kids. instead twenty four florence is a graduate of oxford university articulate intelligent and ready to help the next generation but reckons a million traumatized children from estates like the are going without any kind of help from an overstretched social services and still she has to beg for funding so now kids company can keep its doors open to help more vulnerable young people but for how long in eighteen months the government's again threatening to cut it off without a penny nor a smith. and while the country's
a welfare system is not the only sector defaces budget cuts monks kaiser is discussing whether westminster should follow the advice of its finance minister and be more like china let's now take a listen to what's coming up later this. george osborne says second rate britain must rediscover its can do attitude chancellor dismisses suggestions that china has a sweatshop economy and wishes britain would be more like the communist country. you know you want brits to work for lower wages that's why the bank of england so they're going to keep interest rates low employment goes higher that means that they want wages to trend lower to be on a par with china so that everyone employed but making subsistence wages used to be here subsistence farming used to be the do regear economic model here in britain under the lords and ladies and kings and queens of the feudal period now they wish
to return as part of neil feudalism so george osborne can be piggly wiggly georgie porgie putting it up on his throne making also as a commandment all day long and not doing jack nothing. at the bolshoi's lead soloist as you to go on trial today for masterminding a horrific acid attack on the artistic director of the world famous this year if convicted paddled could be sentenced to twelve years in jail sergei filin was assaulted at the start of the year just outside his apartment block a man through so fearing acid had him severely damaging his face fit in was left blinded in one eye and his vision severely restrict and the other is since undergone more than twenty operations the crime lifted the curtain on the real darlings on and a bit of rivalry backstage as if it. let's now take
a look at some other world news and brave this hour as punished court has ordered a boss commitments to be freed in as joe rio was captured in the late one nine hundred eighty s. and jailed for her role in twenty three murders and a series of explosions carried out by these separatist group as today's move came out of the european court of human rights ruled judges violated the rights of the of the fifty five year old because she was eligible for release due to have prison spanish authorities accepted the ruling but warned that more than a hundred terrorists and cameras could burn east for today's president. to australia now where five teams out of bottling massive bushfires in the state of new south wales after they haul to september court officials have already issued a state of the match and say and say that high winds and sowing temperature as well make much as west in the coming days so i think the blazes have killed at least one
passing and damaged more than two hundred homes. up ahead steve here joe and visions of the u.k. treasury chancellor take a biting from. it seems like politicians can get away with anything nowadays but not all of them the former mayor of failed detroit has been sentenced to twenty years in prison after being found guilty of committing record tearing conspiracy fraud extortion and tax crimes while the mayor the prosecutor say he funneled millions of dollars to himself and family members all while detroit moved headstrong towards the bankrupt state it is in today this is big news not because some mayor took bribes but because he got punished the judge who could fix them stated why this is such an
important case she said at the very least a significant sentence will send a message that this kind of conduct will not be tolerated yes sending a message you see corrupt officials are usually cowards and they do what they do because they feel they can get away with it when you start to put the fear of god into them they start to behave much better so the question is will the mainstream media grab the story and really use the conviction of detroit's former mayor as an example probably not but it would really help the country if they would but that's just my opinion. well. into the. city. says to each one to keep him to keep some time to market to sell something peacefully to friends the trouble he says the song. we've got the future are covered.
welcome to the kaiser report i'm max keiser you know germany's finance ministry as denying reports that is preparing a third bailout for grace of course not you know there will be no third ballot for grace ballots or so last decade this is the age of the ballot and by the time this is over the bandits bankers and brokers will have taken all that you've got no dollar euro yen or truck will be left behind and inflation deflation a complication will take every last nickel and dime. that's right max i believe it will and in fact the bank of england did an online hash tag tweet operation where you were allowed to send them questions and apparently somebody something a question about quantitative easing and called it evil well here is the bank of
england tweet hash tag ask b. o.e. q e not evil they told me cry man one zero one has helped to support economy and protect jobs so they of course receive some responses to this huey is evil and you are the devil says grumpy old dude and then after that we see life master said no it's help to support a corrupt banking system and push people further into poverty so there you have at the bank of england says q.e. quantitative easing is not evil when. they say over there the bank of england that their timing their monetary policy to jobs but there is no connection really between these two other than the fact that the quantitative easing is forcing wages down as part of a deflationary crash that the u.k. now finds itself in deflation i mean that the bond.
