6:03 am
a forty eight year old white male in police custody and he's been charged with attempted murder and at least very much still investigating how exactly this attack on folded but the prime minister she's also chairing an emergency cobra committee and we are going to hear from her very shortly in the meantime take a listen to what the police had to say this is being treated as a terrorist attack on the counterterrorism command is investigation they were pictures were from the muslim community well if it is confirmed to be a terrorist attack then use the full such incident taking place in the u.k. in just three months take a look at what else the public has had to enjoy in recent weeks.
6:04 am
paddy. you heard the police saying that all the victims were from the muslim community and certainly there is an atmosphere of stare and of vulnerability for british muslims at the moment given the attacks in recent weeks it's fair that there could be a heightened hate crime and islamophobia as a result of what has been taking place here in the u.k. where london city con he's come out saying that if you are a british muslim and you're subject to a hate crime be quiet about it you have to speak up and make your voices heard go off to the westminster bridge. we did see the big big spike. it's
6:05 am
a crisis over for the cries we see when there's terrorist incidents but by jesus we have seen a big spike of the london bridge. so much the message to everyone in london or across the country in fact is please report to the victim of a club don't think it's too trivial don't think the police won't take you seriously the police force are responsible for the police service have a zero tolerance towards a crime but community leaders appealing for calm saying that we shouldn't let the actions of crazed individuals be dividing what is otherwise an extremely peaceful multicultural and diverse society here in the u.k. the muslims are feeling and fire in the u.k. at the moment there have been several. incidents of islamophobia purchased manifested itself in attacks usually on muslim women dressed so easily identified because of the hit job what we have in britain is
6:06 am
a problem of the rise in the far right and there is too many and as these events happening now that you can't keep right in the law for some operation old reactions of some management so we have to start looking at this and you know closely it's clean and they directed at every year and i think after recent incidents and the spike in islamic folk attacks that might start to take this small seriously. so militarized from one that it wasn't so long ago that this small scale it was making plenty of headlines let's take a look at it more about this place called the finsbury mosque opened back in the late one nine hundred eighty s. as the muslim population in the area begun to grow since then it's been one of the biggest prayer holes in britain but it was controversial in the. ninety's very much
6:07 am
so that mosque was tied in with radicalism then accusations of its preachers linked to al qaeda one particular eman was preaching there in one thousand nine hundred seven when the tories abu hamza mosque became a meeting point for various extremist figures before hamza was jailed and given a life sentence there were reports the nine eleven attack on the so-called shoe bomber a man had explosives in the shoes of an american airlines flight in two thousand and one were visiting that same place of worship is what we previously heard from locals about the finsbury mosque we i mean i live on this street i. live. fairly good lives in mine i've moved now but only further down the street and i know. what was going on before and they all had to go to the of the mosque around there because it was too just colonized by people who were local the region it's not a checkered history in many ways this mosque was close for a couple of years in two thousand and three following an investigation two years
6:08 am
after it reopened after a new chairman since then the new management has tried to distance it from the radical past but nonetheless local still believe that the mosque there's a history of influencing worshippers opinions global sectaries preach indictive many mosques get the point if it's wrong it's wrong mosques harbor terrorism ships and do some around the world do. the individual must be singled out two years ago the finsbury mosque was targeted in an attempted arson attack that c.c.t.v. for using it showing a man setting a light a petrol can and throwing it into the mosque compound it didn't explode at the time because the running there was heavy rain scotland yard treated that attack number less than islam as an islam a phobic hate crime political commentator mo and believes there's a growing frustration right now these days in the muslim community. attacks on muslim communities are the same as the attacks. on any curious you during a terror attack i think the frustration for the security so far i see and so should
6:09 am
we go elsewhere on other news agencies have relatives always thought to be on this and people have been accusing the channels of dumbing down and attack on the scene and not trying to give seemed or try to avoid the crazy situation with the. other headlines today syrian military jets been shot down by an american war play near the embattled syrian city of raka damascus says the pilot was carrying out a bombing run against islamic state at the time but the pentagon claims it plain for bombing us forces damascus based journalist explains. so if one of the u.s. refers to the democratic forces which is the militia group operating along with the u.s. led coalition trying to take the city off. from the control of eisel but we can also confirm according to suffer through sources from the syrian military operating in that area that the popular church was actually carrying air strike against
6:10 am
a convoy from myself and that the fighter jet in no way you posed any direct or in direct threat to any militia group from those militia groups operating alongside the u.s. led coalition trying to get control over gain control of the city of warplanes of the so-called international coalition shut down one of war a fighter jets in the south ern suburb of rock the fighter plane was in a mission to destroy slotnick state terrorists the aircraft crashed in the pilot is missing but i think there is more to that story and what's more to that story is that is the u.s. is trying to true boundaries in the syrian conflict and red lines. for the syrian army not to cross the syrian battlefield is a very complicated one right now where it has the presence of various international and regional powers but what i can tell you for a fact is that it seems that the syrian army and the syrian government are adamant on actually moving on with their operation to break the ice also huge on the city
6:11 am
of there is what i'm trying actually to limit the ability of the u.s. . led coalition and the u.s. troops who are now on the ground in syria limiting their ability to move on limiting their ability to create influence centers on the syrian battlefield and we have to understand that this is not just a syrian issue this is more of an international conflict and power play between the u.s. and russia on serious. according to a pentagon a statement that syrian fighter jet had strayed into a so-called de confliction washington says the syrian military is forbidden from entering that area where the u.s. backed syria democratic forces the earth s t f a based but russia's foreign minister earlier said that the u.s. is in fact drawn up its own boundaries there without consulting the syrian government reacting to the downing of the jet now the foreign minister sergei lavrov has called for why their cooperation with damascus. we call on the united states and all others who have their forces or advisers on the
6:12 am
ground in syria to ensure the coordination of our work zones of deescalation are one of the possible options to move forward jointly who call in everyone to avoid unilateral moves respect syrian sovereignty and join our common work which is agreed with the syrian government. the downing of the syrian jets the latest in a series of u.s. strikes against forces fighting for the assad government the u.s. led coalition recently conducted several bombing raids against pro-government fighters in syria in those cases the same justification to was used by the pentagon that the pro assad forces had breached this so-called de confliction i'm a work of the director of the u.k. based think tank good losses told me thinks washington could push damascus to retaliate here. this is being used as a principle to prevent the syrian army from the story in silliness over and to be against rebels or against dietitians so on and so forth in a sentence about a year ago the united states or still no action but but two
6:13 am
a year ago they were actively using or possibly using dies forces isis forces to pressure to put pressure on the state or in army now they seem to be actively protecting and this is leading not them but the fact of the matter of is still the syrian army it needs to protect itself just like the syrian the american army when they say where we are attacking forces or we are protecting our personnel if the syrian army decides to switch on to get across the trees or misfires are they attacking americans or are they or would they be protecting themselves as well this is this is not getting anywhere safer there are other developments coming from syria to today this time concerning iran iran's missiles into i still held eastern parts of syria i spoke with a correspondent mccarron about it. when you hear that iran has launched missile strikes the reaction from most people would be fear and dread and that's because
6:14 am
iran has been painted as the body of the entire region and that's because we've been lied to what we've been told is that iran is a country that supports terrorism iran has conducted another ballistic missile to have to president putting iran on notice for firing a ballistic missile and there are also reports the white house is considering labeling iran's islamic revolutionary guard corps a terrorist organization yet what these latest developments show is a very different side to the iran that we know iran like many other countries around the world has experience bloodshed at the hands of islamic state with those twin attacks that we saw into iran just earlier this month gunmen storms the parliament while it was in session opened fire almost similar tale yesterday we saw suicide blasts the muscle leader of the founder of the islamic republic of iran so two very important and precious buildings to the iranian people were types there eighteen people were killed and dozens more were injured and islamic state claimed
6:15 am
responsibility for that attack now after this that these attacks iran vowed revenge and it clearly meant every word that it said these ground to ground missiles strikes that we saw yesterday launched from western iran and into syria's easton resort and targeting the militants which iran said were responsible for those twin attacks that we saw into iran earlier this month and this is an unprecedented move because it marks the first time that iran has launched trikes on syrian soil since the country descended into chaos in two thousand and eleven and it also shows perhaps that iran when it means business it means business perhaps the perception shift it has for is when it comes to iran while the west has warned that iran is a country that's dangerous and that it shouldn't have weapons on the other hand iran is now using these weapons to launch strikes on islamic states the common enemy and it's also making a lot of progress in destroying this common enemy too with
6:16 am
a view from iran the brother the editor in chief of the fars news agency told us what was behind the iranian missile strike in syria. in tonight's a statement that the i.r.g.c. public relations has given out it is warn that this is the beginning if the terrorists embarked on conducting any second attack on iran iran would provide a much more vigorous response to them and not just it has also worn backers and sponsors foreign sponsors of the terrorist groups including regional and trance regional and when i'm in the back years and when iran says trance regional backers of the terrorist groups it specifically means the united states now it is believed by many in and outside the iran that the united states and many of its allies that are backing the terrorist groups in the region especially in syria they need to reassess. their estimates and assessments
6:17 am
and the calculations with regard to syria stay with us if you can this lunchtime in moscow coming up germany's ready to restate its troops out of turkey as relations between the two countries continue to nosedive. i. i. i i i i i
6:18 am
. in case you're new to the game this. economy is built around. corporation washington washington. the. voters elected a businessman to run this country business. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done for. them to start with the brics it talks the president of brics it talks get underway today one year after the country voted to leave the european union secretary promises a deal like no other in history whatever that turns out to be as he sets the ball rolling on those long negotiations predicted with brussels reports next on what
6:19 am
hurdles could lie ahead. there could be as many as seven thousand issues the u.k. and the e.u. need to go over if london wants a good divorce settlement possible rights for e.u. citizens whether or not to remain in the bloc single market and the fate of border controls are merely the tip of the iceberg theresa may has coined one slogan after another promising brits she's got their back bricks it means bricks it bricks it wrecks it wrecks it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it except this iron lady card she's been playing doesn't seem so scary anymore for brussels here's why. in the ten to strengthen her bracks a negotiating hand she called for snap election and let's just say the idea looked better on paper may lost her majority as she is still struggling to hammer out a deal with northern ireland's controversial democratic unionist party after all
6:20 am
they don't see eye to eye on key issues including bracks it well do you prefer soft may campaign for the exact opposite. then things went from bad to worse when she avoided meeting with survivors at the scene of the horrific grant our fire which left at least fifty eight people presumed dead her muted response triggered mass protests outside downing street and gave fresh ammunition to her opponents it can be acceptable but in london we have looked through buildings and look three flights left empty land banking for the future will be homeless in the pool for somewhere to live. exploiting her weakened position some e.u. officials are apparently looking to rush through the talks as well to e.u. powerhouses france and germany are even suggesting a happily ever after is still an option if you don't want to. remain so it's always
6:21 am
open until the brakes of negotiations can. and i think it would be great if they were to reverse the practice a decision so if they get a once and cleared settlement and we still need a better divorce lawyer earlier we discussed the prospects of breck's it with grey walkers who his view is he's a new york observer columnist he believes actually britain must be ready for a no deal scenario maybe at the end of it all it's going to be extremely difficult period of time obviously we know the general election in the u.k. was really very very messy so reason they wanted to increase a majority obviously she lost her overall majority so i think that will complicate things and make things a great deal more difficult but nonetheless i think the big risk for for britain and indeed for europe is that brussels is demanding negotiations on money first and then the trade deal second now you know if we if experience is anything to go by brussels will fail to do the trade deal or do incredibly slowly and i'm very
6:22 am
worried that what's going to happen there is there will be a big push by the europeans to make sure they get their money no push whatsoever or the things that we want i think that britain has to be ready to walk away from the negotiations with nothing on either side if necessary. the conflict between nato allies germany in turkey continues to escalate after berlin is no announced plans to withdraw its troops from the interlinking base in turkey into we locate them to jordan europe correspondent peter all of us got the latest on it. well it all looks very messy at the moment the latest from the german defense ministry is that the they will start pulling out of their troops from the insular air base in turkey in july on the line the defense minister she outlined their plan saying that they would continue as normal until the end of the month until the end of june our flight plans as part of the anti eisel coalition are set after that will be transferring our tanker aircraft as quickly as possible to jordan with
6:23 am
a role that germany has been providing as part of the coalition fighting against isis has been reconnaissance air surveillance well the tornado fighter jets that carry out those reconnaissance flights won't be fully operational from their new base in santee in jordan until october we hear that because of the equipment moving from turkey over to jordan will take that amount of time well this all started because german lawmakers german parliamentarians would deny permission to go and visit their troops that were stationed in turkey but it's the latest step in what has been a degeneration in the diplomatic relations between germany and. the failed coup attempt last year in turkey saw tensions rise after germany said it may consider offering asylum to some of those who took part or accused of taking part in that coup attempt there was also
6:24 am
a diplomatic for rory over the president to one side wanting to campaign here in germany during the referendum that they held airlie at this year they were denied the rights to do that that flared things up and there's also been name calling from ankara towards. even president the one going as far as accusing the german government of nazi tactics all of this between two nato allies who are really at the lowest ebb when it comes to their. diplomatic ties. bullets sir talk about people who are given or make sure we're on half a million tickets have been sold so far for the fee for the twenty seven thousand confederations cup in russia matches will take place almost every day now for the next few weeks across four cities because of course one of those played host to its first game on sunday between cameroon in chile before the tournament kicked off foreign media have been raising fears and racism in hooliganism but many reports pushing the idea that russia isn't safe for visiting fans have been scotched it
6:25 am
seems cameroon supporters for one rubbish those concerns as they took in the atmosphere in the capital yesterday. no problems. stevie very good people it's not the first time i come in a restaurant i can see only better since for the moment about the butt crush on the desktop edition yes. i'm stan collymore and i'm feeling. we're going to be your hosts for the tree thousand and seventy confederations cup right here in russia we're going to be visiting the host cities or sochi has our own secrets to moscow can be great i'm told in full so so cold so i think pretty much covering every topic the fans need to know about the head of the match so don't forget to tune in to some field it's going to be full live in. twenty six minutes past one of the afternoon here in moscow is kevin i would say go by for the day call it will take you through the afternoon a lot going on in britain that i'd keep a truck over the course if you are mobile and about all of the platforms if not by

6:28 am
of payoffs and we speak to a survivor of the holocaust and the makers of the new film destination unknown about auschwitz liberated by stalin more than seventy years ago but it's a good day to bury bad news rubble to mainstream media spin that he might have missed all this and more coming up in today's going underground but first bricks it negotiations begin today and what is exactly the state of europe is mainstream commentators here in the u.k. use the strength of the euro currency as a barometer for wellbeing across the continent well the cradle of european democracy is arguably in ruins greece is sliding into recession with quarter of its g.d.p. gone since the bankruptcy of lehman brothers and unemployment at twenty three percent this politician from europe's most powerful economy saw it coming before trial induce a political we utterly condemn the austerity policy towards the greek government by the german federal government it's an unjustified intervention and you get the feeling after the break to edition in england after the emergence of
6:29 am
a great number of right wing populist parties and groups the european elite and especially the german federal government should not hear the last of the warning shots. and here's fronts even on french government broadcaster france twenty four globally covered by media as a model of pro technocratic globalist. goody it might be freezing it might rain it might snow. but at least i'm at home it's so there are lots of people sleeping under bridges he'd be very grateful to be in my position. is one of the twelve million people in france who suffer fuel poverty no wonder some french politicians beg to differ from the mainstream narrative about europe in the e.u. media echo chamber the. fog rupali pretty society would clearly break under the austerity policy some on their knees poverty and unemployment office.
