1:07 am
than twenty people being injured two of those police officers thursday evening you know the people here are upset with the way they think their politicians in particular on paying attention to them when it comes to refugees and migrants and who has the right to be here and that's the way it looks and can that right now. yellow ribbons used as the symbol of support for jailed opposition politicians in the spanish region of catalonia have been removed overnight by anti independence activists in the city of drona eighty people wearing white suits and masks gathered up the ribbons into the sacks a group called themselves brigades to clean yellow ribbons and to free catalonia spokesperson told us they wanted to show the public spaces should stay neutral. the white suit is our way of putting forward our demands we have put on the suits to draw attention we also consider it to be a form of protest first of all we went there to get rid of those yellow ribbons and
1:08 am
to deliver the message that public places are neutral that they should be neutral our opponents should respect public places everything depends on the camp you belong to we believe that their freedom of speech ends where ours begins it's that simple that one members of the right wing pro unionists citizens party in catalonia joined in as well for this president albert riviera removing ribbons tied to roadside fences. enough public places belong to all catalonians who will defend them every day. today in l.l.m. removed the yellow ribbons from fabric spaces will continue to defend the streets the churches and squares of catalonia meanwhile pro independence activists have been busy putting the ribbons back they say they represent democracy to remove them restricting the freedom of secession supporters catalonians began using the yellow ribbons to show their support for job politicians who were arrested for taking part

in the independence referendum last october. the nobel committee's defended its decision to award myanmar's prime minister a peace prize that's despite a united nations report on the mass killing and atrocities committed by the country's government forces against the range a minority has the details the treatment of the real hinge a minority in myanmar equates to genocide that's the conclusion made by the un with ethnic cleansing happening on the watch of nobel peace prize laureate own son suit and despite public demand to rescind cheese award the nobel committee insists he should keep it.
1:10 am
the u.n. report demands me and marse top generals be investigated for crimes against humanity and also accuses misty of turning a blind eye to it all but that's all right because the nobel committee says it's only concerned with what happened in the past. it's important to remember that's a noble prize whether in physics literature peace is awarded for some prize worth the effort or achievement of the past i'm certain. won the nobel prize for peace for who fight for democracy and freedom up until ninety ninety one the year she was awarded the prize. well if we're to believe the committee only cares about recipients pasts they're going to have some explaining to do here.
1:11 am
yasser arafat risk. the peace prize for brokering a middle east accord securing palestinian rule in gaza and the west bank at the same time he was the chair of the palestinian liberation organization responsible for violence against israeli civilians who they consider to be part of an illegal occupation arafat did renounce the violence before receiving the award but how about another nobel peace prize laureate henry kissinger. kissinger received the prize for negotiating a cease fire in the vietnam war he was set to share the nomination with north vietnamese diplomat late dr except the vietnamese responded with a big no thank you and to no one's amazement that's because kissinger had been secretly bombing cambodia throughout the nine hundred seventy s.
1:12 am
as disclosed in a pentagon report he approved almost four thousand bombing raids in just the first two years of the campaign. and last but not least as barack obama many were left puzzled as to what obama had exactly done to receive his peace prize but just like the others the nobel committee said it had something to do with his past only very rarely has a person to the same extent as obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future we are not awarding the prize for what may happen in the future but for what he has done in the previous year we hope this will enhance what he is trying to do what exactly obama did in that previous year is a mystery to most people. the international olympic committee presidents admitted that the war of doping in sport might never be won back to come under fire for that comment especially from america's anti-doping agency which claims back and just
1:13 am
give up and takes a look at all this could mean for the future of russian athletics. while the world of sports continues its fight against doping the president of the international olympic committee has made a very honest and a very sad admission but pink. who will always happen these who's. one of the walls you cannot read those words did not sit well with the chief of the u.s. anti-doping agency traver tiger so obviously a top leader of iran i don't can't simply throwing it out he probably has a point especially since doping scandals have hit tiger's own turf just this week alone two u.s. athletes received lengthy bans for substance abuse that's while pundits blame anti-doping officials for turning a blind eye when it comes to domestic sport or rather multibillion businesses like the n.f.l. but thomas back strong words weren't the trigger for your side as criticism tiger
1:14 am
to assume that the i.o.c. presidents quote was essentially a precursor to water reinstating the russian anti-doping agency at the meeting scheduled for september twentieth but he did say that he hoped russia had learned its lesson the hard way and would be welcomed back into the world of sports and that was something tiger stressed must not happen would be a devastating blow to russia to meet a lot of credibility as well as the hopes and dreams of millions around the world who believe in clean and fair competition russia and its anti-doping agency have been imprisoned for several years now after the publication of the so-called mclaren report which detailed accusations of a state sponsored doping program the result many russian athletes banned the country's anti-doping agency effectively shut down and water handing over a lengthy criteria list for ricin to be reinstated last year the agency acknowledged that nineteen of thirty one points had been met and just this month
1:15 am
the president of water said there were only two conditions remaining. two off thirty one but they still had to be purified i think relationships with goods to the point that we have yet to purify the two conditions that are still outstanding sure more needs to be done with new accusations and new anti-doping investigations russia still has three weeks to put things right so has tiger jumped the gun in demanding russia to be kept out the final two criteria we're talking about. russia is supposed to say hands up the mclaren report was right we did engage in state sponsored doping russia has absolutely rejected the mclaren reports finding not because they don't believe you russia is quite rightly said we want the evidence thomas bach himself has requested the evidence and so far nobody has seen it apart we presume from mclaren it is only
1:16 am
a guess at this stage but i think the first steps to a reinstatement will be taking place towards the end of september when there is a big meeting of water and i think the outcome will be that russia will be readmitted but i think it will be an unconditional reinstatement but eventually i think people would just have to say well ok russia are not admitting the been state sponsored doping but we need them anyway they are a world power in sports and sport needs russia keeping sports clean is something that both the i.o.c. president and ahead of us and i don't think agency are striving to achieve but can you really demand one thing from another country when similar doping scandals break out in your own backyard one thing's for sure the next water meeting in the seychelles is looking like politics and doping will go down the finish line ok first of all how much of this new information on the killing of three russian journalists in the central african republic might shed light on that murder is the
1:17 am
next story after the break. you know world big partisan movies a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back 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 we're watching closely watching the hawks. john mccain and his republican cohorts like the bush family and others they will break cozy with ken lay financed the bush campaigns of the bush presidency and when
1:18 am
they got caught committing massive fraud on the same scale as a savings a long crisis the machinery was already in place thanks to john mccain is a bag man for wall street for decades yeah too bad all those guys out it make them whole at the expense of the a democracy slash economy of the united states which is disintegrating. again moratti wealth news for you now is the united states announces a shift in focus from fighting terrorism to boosting weapons stocks through accusations that it's entering a new arms race with other major world powers. great power competition not terrorism is now the primary focus of u.s. national security strategy is that for a time. i
1:19 am
was. six. six. six you mentioned the navy for example that we have fewer ships that we did in one nine hundred sixty governor we also have a few horses and bayonets but nature of our melter changed. the world changed right russia and china appear competitors and we have to think about our plants different ways and we have in the past when you look at the three major superpowers china russia and the united states all three of directly china
1:20 am
and russia really upgraded their forces in the last five years so now the united states is playing catch up a little bit on some of those people who are the problem isn't we spend more money than the rest of the world on military equipment and manpower this is about big business these country companies make billions off the united states plus the illegal arms shipment state they send around the world the united states is in a constant buildup of weaponry and in a constant arms race. fresh revelations have surfaced which could potentially shed light on the. derrius to have three russian journalists in the central african republic at the end of july with science of their perilous trip was badly managed the journalists were investigating alleged links between the kremlin and private military companies companies operating in the country they were found dead in a bullet ridden car an investigation was sponsored by russian tycoon and vocal
1:21 am
critic of president putin. and this is led to some speculation in the mainstream media that the murders could have been politically motivated and khodorkovsky himself doubled down on those claims do you have any reason to believe that these men were killed because of the work they were doing. yes i think exactly that. however screenshots of text messages between the tivo organizing the trip and the slain journalists which have recently surfaced indicate possible serious managerial lapses that's prompted khodorkovsky to hold his support for the out of the journalists working for jacqueline who could discuss the revelations with correspondent. the group chat featured the three members of the crew and also their boss back at the h.q. plus a couple of producers at this point the screenshots can not shed light on what exactly happened on that tragic day and the probe is of course far from being over but the
1:22 am
screen shots allow us to trace the preparations that were actually being undertaken for working in one of the most dangerous countries in africa and also the crew and their people kept using that very same group chat as their means of communication when the trip began and just have a look at some of these elements of the preparations we've got a pretty small press cards in english and also a u.n. sign for the car. make sure you film how you get rid of the press cards do it in a creative way and with commentry so apparently according to these messages from their h.q. faking u.n. credentials was part of their plan yes and by the way the group later claimed that they were working in the central african republic in coordination with the united nations however eventually the un said that they knew nothing of it so again the
1:23 am
plan suggested that the group could use their freshly printed press cards at one stage of the travel and then burn them out another we don't know the purpose of that well they knew that they were about to break the law by entering the country on tourist visas but as a journalist on active duty without any accreditation you might argue that most of the central african republic is lawless land so your logical assumption would be that they must have had a go to person on the ground then definitely a proper translator and for sure a carefully thought through plan and reality though when they arrived in the country they didn't even have the phone number of their fixer he didn't show up at the airport and they were never able to get in touch with them and at the end of the day they didn't have a proper i'd temporary and so issues started piling up one after another upon
1:24 am
arrival and here's some of the other parts of the messages that the crew sent in the group chat guys were in a bit of a logistical disaster the locals are just in adequate gadgets are absolutely alien to them there's a feeling of total helplessness when it comes to language basically no one speaks english the journalists mission and the ca are obviously meant that they were supposed to sneak through some heavy security and have a look at what the cameraman texted and the group chat after one of their failed attempts to do just that we couldn't get in they said it's only possible with a permit from the defense ministry plus two cops met us with all our equipment by the hotel we had to bribe them. then we were stopped at a checkpoint and other bribe but a smaller one the locals the cameras as a negative unfriendly thing and what kind of directions did their bosses give them at that point they were told to keep going the group was losing money on bribes
1:25 am
they were never even able to get and touch with their all the english speaking guide however when everything seemingly went out of control messages from age you kept urging them to stay on track to go there by as you paid a lot of money to get to this country you shouldn't give up about any permit we need a translator to find him when he's held from being with you it's impossible to storm into the security retore and i'm not sure we have to go to the ministry and be tough with the bribes next time what rules did you violate told them you're going to go to the embassy except this group chat clearly points at the fact that there were real security issues that the crew was facing before their tragic death. right that's your news for now i'm calling brian moscow will update you again in about thirty five minutes from now next though more on the plight of myanmar range
1:26 am
of people this is r.t. thanks for watching. take. a parting of ways european leaders talk of a future without the u.s.
