burial sites contain more than one thousand bodies. there are three hundred to four hundred bodies in this mass grave three to four catacombs are completely full of dead bodies and grief and despair still has the syrian city reeling as relatives time and time again have to identify their loved ones. we excavated the body of only one of my sisters the other four remain missing i don't know where are the birth as they were burned by my uncle now we're looking for the uncle to call to find them. the majority of the bodies are civilians mostly women and children our team works twenty four hours a day whether it's civilian or fighter we give the body a number well this number is over a thousand down and that's just in the three recently discovered mass graves it's a race against time and the regular one there are more time passes the harder it is to identify the bodies as they rot in the ground nameless families help us identify
the civilians by telling us what the person was wearing were by describing a ring or watch where a tattoo why didn't define a lot of bodies through the hair because it doesn't disintegrate and mass graves of raka highlight not only i solved monstrosity but also what rights groups call america's denial in its responsibility for the city's tragedy the coalition has acknowledged a mere twenty three civilian deaths resulting from the more than thirty thousand artillery rounds and several thousand strikes it launched into rock a city the blustery denials a contradicted by the lived reality of the hundreds of civilians there even contradicted by their own partners on the ground looking at these pictures nine months on it's hard to see any real recovery from the post-war horror at all it's even difficult to tell them apart and just in case these. we're taking only
a couple of months ago and these are back from two thousand and seventeen u.s. led forces came pounded the city with some thirty thousand artillery rounds proclaim victory and then washington apparently chose to simply forget rocca the u.s. coalition caused the destruction of records and has a responsibility to rebuild the city we need to help with restoring the water supply in clearing the rubble there was that an effect in washington we were directly targeted by the coalition after the reconnaissance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew that of that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using phosphorus it targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft the city decayed
bodies decomposed there's even no estimates on how many more musgrave's are still to be found houses of people who were killed during the battle to retake the city maybe were buried has to leave but also many remain in the rubble zero or at least in mass graves each one has to militarize dozens to hundreds of bodies of your screen you're hard to make such as to beaches but that's what we know for years are struggling to cope with the logistical challenges because there are many of the gated to conduct examinations because they are landmines around there it is clear from what we have seen on the ground that the teams that are working to exhibit bodies need far more creating a technical assistance but until someone answers the pleas of raka citizens they must live amid rubble and stench the stench of decomposing flesh. between the french ambassador to the u.s.
and the host of the daily show trevor noah that's after he made a joke congratulating africa for winning the world cup in a reference to the origins of many of the players on the french team but the ambassador failed to see the funny side i forgot what the world africa was. ok i get it i get it they have to say it's the french team but look at those eyes i forgot you don't get that tan by hanging out in the south of france my friends the rich and various backgrounds of these players a reflection of france's diversity but cooling them an african team it seems you are denying their frenchness this even just legitimizes the ideology which claims witness is the only definition of being fridge trevor no i have sought to clarify his earlier comments although offered no apology you've seen those players i love them paul pogba. i watch all of them like i love those players and i love
how african they are and how french they are don't take their french as a way but i also don't think you need to take their africanus away human rights activists. believes that it's important not to ignore people's origin. what's the french ambassador say you know he starting about. kind of ideology in france or with about assimilation and the rich and but this doesn't work because what is important in france it's to talk about differences because if france is strong today it's because of his difference is big because of firm the people who is coming who are coming from everywhere we cannot deny today that if there is there is a african black. african french or international team is because of france it's because the story in france france invaded africa years ago this is from go to
the least we can talk about that but still we can say that yes they are french but we have to talk about their origin to it's very very important dutch foreign minister stuff bloc has faced a storm of criticism after saying that there is no such thing as a peaceful multicultural society and. it's a little good. for her. to. steal something. from her out of the stamps are. already being. held off. the shelf. or. the minister also dismissed the former dutch colony suriname as a failed state to due to ethnic divisions refugee groups and politicians alike have
expressed dismay over blocks remarks. blogging orderly offends people that look like me but a whole national history and identity this isn't worth your government official minister block is undermining efforts by this government to make joint agreements in europe on the proper reception of refugees block has apologized for his remarks saying they were meant to spark discussion and not offend or put the issue up for debate with independent journalists local of a and un coordinator on minorities mohammad circle. he says things which up and former unfortunately real is that dean multicultural societies that were promised us that the perfect twenty first century site is don't function in the west at least in western europe i think the last remark you just based on. ignorance of how can societies can bring together
a big example i can ensure we can witness is that what the french team for example look at french team french team contains a multi-cultural society france beat another team from a small country in the balkans and all the players in this small team of the country of origin so there is no rule to be taken out of that to meet the multiculturalist that doesn't function is what you have communities living next to each other and not mixing it is very easy for example for asians to. melton and become members of society but we have some some part of the population that refuse it to want to impose their culture in the public space like islam for example democracy can only be based on respect respect or for that are each other culture respect it comes also from form not to fear from other people culture from the other society we import misery we have
a social security system which is based on the contribution of everyone and the problem is that the millions that come to europe never participated they never contributed they come with families look at examples off the continent africa if we have left africa alone would not have seen african migrated to to to europe if we had not it would not have sucked the richness of africa there diamond the gold the oil then those people who stayed in their own country that would be years and years no no if you have. been in your result one the last the world to try to invade other countries and quicker of please countries and they complain. why am i going to come back to europe because you're conquered they conquered those countries and they impose laws they believe come back to with us if you want to this is our right is england does this right spring is here migrating they ask you for the black in the sixties to come and work in england same for danger this is not people are and how the choice is by force is not a choice minorities are welcome when they are minorities when it is a real inflation in millions no it doesn't stop living there for thirty years in
europe before thirty five years i believe because the multicultural has made europe as rich this country is not by wiping someone else it is not about. you know imposing some one else culture another i didn't see that i would like to see or read integration more and that doesn't for me i'll be back of the hour with more news you are watching our international stay with. it's hard to imagine decades after the war a nazi doctor was still active and rich in the nineteen seventies tryna tell had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery at auschwitz a german company granted to him develop thalidomide a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy if it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby is anything but. you
know she said is just cut short arms minix a little mind victims i have to this day received no compensation they never apologized for the suffering that not only want the money i want the revenge. with nor make this manufacture consent instead of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the fine and merry go round lifts only the one percent. nor middle of the room. is really. you know world of big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to
dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bath and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. this is poem bus broadcasting around the world from washington d.c.
i'm part next thank you for joining us we did coming up on today's program as promised on the broadcast last time we have our interview with nomi prins a former big banker at goldman sachs and the author of collusion how central bankers rigged the world we talked big bank profits many of which were reported this week and ask if financial regulations should be relaxed and as comcast bows out of their bid for twenty first century fox leaving the door wide open does that what will happen to the europeans pay t.v. companies try which has many suitors including comcast and with media consolidation is local media on their last leg we'll try to sort it all out with the host of the big picture holland cook and conservative t.v. and radio commentator smalls plus president trump met with business leaders yesterday we'll look at the skills gap plus we talk about the fed and some economic projections with danielle de martino the c.e.o.
of intelligence were jampacked really get right to it u.s. president donald trump has found a new target for criticism the federal reserve that we're just mentioning mr trump aired his grievances on thursday in an interview with c.n.n. b.b.c. take a listen i've put a very good man in the fed i don't necessarily agree with it be cause he's raising interest rates i'm not saying that i agree with it and i don't know if they're going to agree to that i must tell you i don't. i'm not thrilled because you know we go up and every time you go up they want to raise rates again and i don't really i am not happy about it but at the same time i'm letting them do what they feel is best. and despite that nod to the fed's independence at the end of mr trump's comments there today he criticized the fed again on twitter complaining that quote the us is raising rates while the dollar gets stronger and stronger with each passing day taking away our big competitive advantage the fed is slowly raised to
rate since late two thousand and fifteen higher interest rates tend to support a stronger dollar which makes u.s. exports relatively less affordable abroad mr trump's critics were upset by him and his lack of deference rather to the unwritten policy of avoiding comment on fed decisions that begin during the clinton administration and federal reserve president from st louis president jim boehlert said the comments would not affect the fed's decisions on interest rates but other still fear that the fed choices will now be second guessed to an even higher degree. we have seen record bank profits some of which we reported here on the program earlier in the week at the same time we see continuing calls for relaxing regulation in the financial sector and even things like stress tests conducted by the federal reserve which are meant to guard against another government big bank bailout and here's.
