which after a year and a half we have no evidence whatsoever and now what we've got is actually evident. could a backlash on the democrats absolutely i think that's the primary that's the fundamental reason why they do not want to release it really puts in the question this entire investigation it shows at least indications that could be further investigated but from the initial appearance severe bias with senior levels of our law enforcement agencies i think what he's concerned about here is i personally don't think anything in the memos probably is that embarrassing yes is that against will it threaten national security i don't think so so the classification is probably germany's domestic intelligence chief is a raising the alarm over the children of islamic state fighters that have been brought to germany he says the youngsters are living time bombs that can be used in terror plots inside the country to use peter over has more. well hung's the old
11:31 pm
muhsin said the children all german parents who went off to join isis in iraq syria pose a potential security threat when or if they return back here to germany in fact he went as far as to refer to them in some cases as a ticking time bombs they were confronted early with islamic state ideology learned to fight and were in some cases forced to participate in the abuse of prisoners or even the killing of prisoners we have to consider that these children could be living time bombs there is a danger that these children come back brainwashed with a mission to carry out attacks or mustn't also went on to say that there was a whole network of online isis headhunters looking to recruit and radicalize potentially vulnerable children islamic state uses headhunters who scour the internet for children to can be approached and tries to radicalize these children were recruited children for terrorist attacks it's no wonder that germany is concerned the country has seen
11:32 pm
a number of mine is involved in terrorist attacks over the last couple of years most notably there was a case back in twenty sixteen when a twelve year old boy tried to blow up a christmas market in the west of the country and the german government figures showed that around a thousand people left the country to go and joy in isis now around one third of those have returned back to germany but the government also points out they have no way of knowing how many children are being born to those those germans that went off to join isis and how many potentially could come back to the country and pose a threat but that prompted mohsin to say that he thought that the security services should be given the right to launch surveillance operations against mine is in germany that's anybody under the age of fourteen years old that though of course comes with its own issues a particularly sensitive topic talking about launching why it tops and other types
11:33 pm
of surveillance operation against children that young. murder rates in the u.s. city of baltimore skyrocketed in two thousand and seventeen with fifty six killings per one hundred thousand people a new record in a city that already has a reputation for being dangerous and crime ridden. cities in body american urban decay more depressingly than the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. murder. in full. yes baltimore there is a. crime strategy.
11:34 pm
for. you. it all comes as baltimore has been rocked by going trials in one of america's biggest police corruption scandals the gun trace task force an elite group of plain clothed officers were supposed to be reducing violent and violent crime however it now seems that they were actually adding to it six out of eight members of the group pleaded guilty to charges of organized crime including extortion and drug dealing are american is across the story for. the baltimore police department is now involved in one of the biggest scandals in u.s.
11:35 pm
law enforcement history for months now the court system has been trying to investigate corruption within the city's police force eight officers are on trial over drug trafficking racketeering robbery and planting fake evidence like drugs and b.b. kept. we would create false reports to cover up the robberies we were involved in it was like a way of life we're got to weigh with a lot of things if proven guilty the officers that may face twenty to one hundred years in prison and six of them have already pleaded guilty and are now acting as witnesses in hopes of softening the moving verdict and their lawyers claim the officer spilled guilt over what they've done mr jenkins is extremely remorseful he's been remorseful for a long time even before these charges were brought and he's relieved that today finally he was publicly able to accept responsibility for their client sorry for what they did for sure. he sure is he regretful of what what happened i
11:36 pm
really don't have any comment meanwhile officers cases continue to be dismissed with hundreds under review and most of them involve incidents of officer switching off their body cameras to plant drugs or guns and then reenact seizing the evidence they had already planted. police corruption trial is still ongoing in baltimore and we will be following it to its conclusion right here more news in just a minute stay with us.
11:37 pm
they get accepted or rejected. so what you want to present. that you'd like to be this is what before. be good. welcome back this is our t. international live from moscow now the pentagon has acknowledged that it conducted an unsuccessful missile defense test on wednesday the missile was launched from land and failed to intercept an incoming target launched from an aircraft over
11:38 pm
hawaii a pentagon spokesperson confirmed the incident yesterday during a press briefing. it did not meet our objectives but we learned something all the time with these tests and we learned something from this one and will continue to improve our capabilities. to shed light on the issue michael maloof a former pentagon official is joining us live now michael when something like this happens you're always the person who has the right information for us so let's get to the trumpet ministration they have reiterated support for development of this missile defense using the north korean nuclear threat as justification however after this latest test failure what is the future of a system like this. well there's no other choice but to continue trying to perfect it this is actually a modification of previous models of the s.m. three as it's called is part of the software the so-called a just platform type of
11:39 pm
missile that's about ready to be deployed in romania for example they have a lot of bugs and you've got to consider too that when you're shooting and shooting a missile like this it's like trying to knock a bullet with a hit a bullet with another bullet. is very very difficult and what's what's a little disturbing is that this is the second failure since june i believe and the and they were they were both shot under controlled conditions so if this missile if a missile is fired in anger from let's say north korea. and it's coming in at at a at a terrific speed. the likelihood of that missile hitting that incoming is going to be extremely difficult and again that would not be under control conditions and if the north koreans for example were to do
11:40 pm
a swarm. approach with four or five missiles at a time it would absolutely overload the system so something's going to get through so it's. the system itself needs a lot of work and we're talking about technology levels that are still in the infant stage and it's very difficult what they're talking about in some cases this may be working on like a modified s the strategic defense initiative program and actually having launchers in space because that's going to be important future actually in trying to down missiles or even satellites that could in effect be nuclear weapons but i think that for now that the best the best time really to hit a missile in this case would be an. it's it's once it's launched just after its launch but it could be a test and that's one of the dilemmas facing policymakers and defense experts
11:41 pm
is that missile test or is it the real thing and that that's so there's a long way to go in this development program frankly michael you want to back to something you brought up just a bit ago north korea of course missile tests don't happen in a vacuum there's the political situation as well if the pentagon isn't sure its missile defense system is reliable is it a good idea for the u.s. president to be provoking north korea by engaging in a war of words with kim jong un. well i take your point and they the answer is absolutely not. there and in fact that feeds his narrative. that the united states is really out to. do away with his regime and and in survival for kim jong un is absolutely critical and and essential and so any kind of military exercises any sending b. tuesday from guam to do practice runs over just south of the north korean border of
11:42 pm
the the thirty eighth parallel parallel or the d.m.z. zone it's it's tantamount to a provocation in the eyes of the north koreans and we should be doing and we already have three carrier task forces right off of north korea right now and those are all provocations to try to put maximum pressure on him but if he feels cornered he may do the very thing that we're trying to prevent and that is. unleash a war now his nukes would probably not be used on south korea that's too close but he certainly could open up with a barrage of artillery that he has ten thousand artillery pieces along the d.m.z. hidden deep deeply bed imbedded in mountains so it's to have that kind of a provocation doesn't serve any purpose and also it doesn't get to do away with his nucular and missiles that this administration has pledged will be done on on donald trump's watch but i've heard the i've seen this movie before and it just hasn't
11:43 pm
happened yet and we see even when it was in the development stage we still we have seen this movie play out we haven't seen how it ends yet. unfortunately seems to me one of those movies that just keeps playing and playing and playing and hopefully you can find an end to it sometime soon michael maloof and incredibly interesting to hear thoughts former pentagon official with us here on our to international inc you. all right now a libyan man who lost his whole family in a nato air raid is planning to take his fight for justice to the european court of human rights he says the alliance dropped two bombs on his house during its military intervention in the country in two thousand and eleven. now we demand that nato explain why our house and houses were showing all the military targets i don't understand why nato targeted our house sadly my dear wife died as well as my cousins my innocent children and our neighbors our friends were there with those it
11:44 pm
was a monstrous crime that nato has the latest equipment and technology which allows them to accurately determine the targets of the nato cross struck specifically at night when people were in their home while they intentionally hit civilian targets the hospital schools gas stations they destroyed all the infrastructure while they were killing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure apparently knowing there were no weapons there so you can see on the map where the nato attack took place as mentioned thirteen people were killed in the bombardment including three children he says his house may have been targeted because his father was a general who served under libya's former leader moammar gadhafi now colleague says it was just a family home and not a legitimate target he began his battle for justice back in two thousand and twelve but his face an uphill struggle to actually get his case heard in court nato which
11:45 pm
enjoys a degree of legal immunity in such cases argues that it had no intelligence suggesting civilians were in the house at the time of the strike however says his lawyers have now found a way of challenging the protections afforded to the alliance and he hopes his case will set a precedent for others who also lost their family. we gathered our families in different parts of libya we found a man whose wife and daughter and son as well as his mother died joining the shelling there while the families in other cities a lot of families we compiled a report from all identified victims off the having documented in photograph the material was so that this case could become a historical precedent in such international. which they are imposing their sanctions we just start developing our domestic capabilities topping our internal resources the member how during the previous u.s.
11:46 pm
administration they said that the russian economy will be in shambles but pointing to falling oil prices and sanctions and all that stuff well i mean shambles not quite the opposite. this is harlan kentucky. over the place you could walk around st fanny's or you need. a co money city with almost no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal miners the fed that's. lived to see these people are survivors of a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become
11:47 pm
a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see that and it's happening it's happened. so wrong why don't we just don't. i mean the world to get to shape out this day comes to add to it and in games from it because betrayal . when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
11:48 pm

11:51 pm
a threat to our entire society so the fact that the british nation are investing in this initiative is of enormous significance and most of all to holocaust survivors because they are really deeply worried what's going to happen beyond their own lifetime we need to let them know that we're going to carry their torch for them we will guarantee that we will remember the holocaust and more importantly we remember the lessons of the holocaust and speaking of lessons important is the educational aspect of the memorial unlearning sent i think that's the essence of the entire initiative because we are remembering the past for the sake of the present and the future isn't a tragic alex that so many years after the second world war have been genocides in bosnia in cambodia in darfur in rwanda the world hasn't yet
11:52 pm

11:54 pm
know we play it over with just the three of the brothers really paraded home after a show about this and it was very nice it was a very nice atmosphere parables would realize that the storm clothes were galloping and anti jewish legislation was starting to be passed on not just in germany but in austria too so you went to belgium before the war started i was the last one to relieve after my one brother went to america the other one to england and i. my parents had some friends in belgium in brussels. and therefore the friends can i send the young his poise friend in all over to you were naturally the city about our means and him over and we'll take care of him but then of course the germans invaded belgium germans invaded belgium so freely when you were in austria the invaded austria with you in belgium little really belgium de gea i'm going to get
11:55 pm
the impression they were asked of you in particular vendor germans invaded belgium i run away to franz because i really ready naughty book sick chile about paris they moved who she is a half an acre. dances on the stage and general noti book standing all about the joy of young people of men and women in paris and part of. you joined the resistance not as yet i was working on plus to guys like julie momart of where i contacted german soldiers on plus the god because there are so many germans or just there and we took them to brothels and to cover races and they paid us a commission for bringing the german soldiers into these northeast places and that's how we made the i made
11:56 pm
a very good living actually doing this year naturally i'd force papers a four hundred francs i bought my sims myself some for its people and i changed my name to all bad mates now born in i just love and so that worked for a while little identify who you really were dead tried to then you will discover i met a girl i fell in love is jacqueline was her name and. i told her that i was in the resistance. and but one day when the had fights between each other she went to the germans and told them that fred in order that all their mates there is not from what i just of mine but he's working for the resistance point zero that the the cinemas were showing on to some attic films on the atmosphere and palace were the and then the vishay government
11:57 pm
started to collaborate with the germans and the anti jewish policies and of course there you had your or your fight with the your girlfriend you want exposed as to who you really where you arrived in one thousand forty five in clearly a grievance camp and pulled. and then taken. to be dollar concentration camp near not host what house or and then of course the soviet troops liberated house for which and you were taken to better and better as we have very very liberated by the british army but in many ways said by survivors and those who experienced these dreadful conditions that the belsen was the worst camp of all because no food was given to us and people just died like flies into to graunt of their beds was full of dead people who died of hunger
11:58 pm
that i remember digging into the ground just to find some roots to eat. just anything to keep alive and it was just unbelievable and something that every never forget it and when you were in belsen how much information that you have about the hopes that the allied forces in this case the british forces would approaching the camp for liberation that you gennaro the joy of knowledge that they were coming or the just not know anything nobody knew anything and some the one the somebody came to me and said look there see seem to be other troops at the entrance of of the camp and i went and saw was a british army were liberated by having belsen and right away. and it was such a joy for us and we were first they were given some food anything to eat
11:59 pm
because this or did that people and they got the german guards there to get them to take the dead bodies and dig graves and to they had to bury the dead bodies in the ground what is the motivation that drives you to tell the story about the appalling conditions and belsen about the the privation about the people dying like flies as you put what drives you to see what happened i do not want the world ever to forget what has happened in the second world war especially now we know six million. innocent jewish people murdered because they were jews and innocent people were murdered by the nazis and i don't want the world ever to forget what has happened and this is the reason why is still talk today into two
