a security guard though i do not know if it is true he was a very calm guy and then somehow the change started growing his beard maybe it happened of the his grandmother died. he's a lawyer worked somewhere in moscow he comes from a good family mother grandmother he was a good man he was always very polite attentive i can't say anything bad about him i can't believe what's happened in the country does in your house and he was he wasn't aggressive very calm quite quiet he was lonely no friends no girlfriend we found out about his whole be by accident he invited my husband to join him at a shooting range when he refused the topic was never raised again although we now know is what we've been finding out now from the media. well there are also reports that the russian invest in committee has searched the home of the suspect and interviewed his family and friends here's a reminder of how the attack unfolded. we'll
3:03 am
usually means if the when we heard 3 sounds we needed him to realize that we should hide it then we heard someone in the street shouting go back go back. to those signals and you'll listen when the man wasn't shooting randomly and i think we heard him shout out something but we didn't manage to make out what he was shouting at. them when i'm with them in the city in a basement we're watching now when a guy came and could just going outside and he told us there was a shooting outside i'm certain into the past and he told us the internet has had been dragged into the cafe. the f.s.b. building is just to the left of me and the whole thing happened at around half past
3:04 am
6 in the evening right on the opposite side of this main f.s.b. building of this f.s.b. had quarterlies according to an unconfirmed video which we can show you right now the alleged shooter took his position between behind one of the columns right again on the opposite side of this building he took aim armed with an assault rifle and he opened fire it seemed that he was specifically targeting f.s.b. offices coming out of the building this is the heart of moscow it's the very center of the russian capital it's a trendy and hip area with plenty of buzz cafes and restaurants so at 6 o'clock it wasn't just the end of the work shift wasn't just the end of the work they wasn't just people leaving their offices offices out on the streets but also plenty of people just out and about plenty of tourists i mean if you just look over their christmas decks. patients are already up here so people were doing their christmas
3:05 am
shopping there's a st regis hotel right across the street from me so there were literally hundreds of people out and about on this square and they were terrified by the shooting but initially many of them were confused because with christmas right around the corner many of them is still the 1st burst of fire with well fireworks. i was sitting with my friends at a bar when the shooting began it was the sound of a kalashnikov assault rifle i know what it sounds like my friends were like oh it must be firecrackers but i told them no way it's not firecrackers and then we saw people running down the street it was scary at 5 or 10 minutes past 6 the gunfire began and it was not just a few shots it came in bursts we saw officers taking cover behind the cars. left work met up with my girlfriend and when we heard some dull sounds in the distance i thought at 1st it was fireworks or some firecrackers but as the sound
3:06 am
continued we realized something was wrong traffic police who were in the nets could bridge as usual began evacuating people they apparently caught on to what was going on people started running we heard the gunfire plenty of details are missing right now no more official information as as of yet we do know that the russian president is being kept in the loop of this attack right here in the heart of moscow and goes down off reporting what we spoke to russia analysts martin accordion all say the security expert child bridge for their thoughts on the attack. nobody in his right mind would take an a k $47.00. 10 to get into the bianca and start firing at the guards he's going to be killed he knew that he could have gone into any restaurant and floated as many people as you like but that was not his objective he just wanted to kill those associated with the security services now the f.s.b. and if you killed one. well you would then say that i have achieved my character
3:07 am
because i would be killed as well given that the target appears to have been dispiriting obviously so publicly linked with the security services in the state and given the timing on the almost that the anniversary of. the security forces day . be quite strong indications as to the motivation assuming that the government is a rational actor had this attack i think taken place against a more soft target which is usually the case with more explicit overt terrorist acts then you would have expected i think far more casualties to have resulted. the european union and moscow have slammed the latest u.s. sanctions targeting companies involved in russia's north gas pipeline to germany the kremlin stresses that washington has broken diplomatic etiquette once again while berlin and brush or say that america should mind its own business. we're looking very closely at the us crossing
3:08 am
a crucial edge of foreign policy as it starts imposing sanctions which russia has already become accustomed to against its own allies we can see the intention to make europe buy american liquefied gas and thus to slow the development of the continent's economy to undermine its capability of competing with the u.s. in the global markets washington has decided that even the closest nato allies don't deserve mercy if the us geo political and commercial ambitions are at stake. the german government has regretfully taken into account that sanctions against north stream to turks stream initiated by the us congress they affect german and european companies and are tantamount to interference in our domestic affairs the pipeline is being built from russia to germany through the baltic sea and will supply enough gas to power almost 30000000 households the sanctions target companies involved in building the last remaining leg of the pipeline and the main
3:09 am
swiss contract to has now pulled banked over washington's tough penalties and old string spokes person to tell r.t. that completing the project is essential for europe pain and security and says that work will be finished a cygnus possible the u.s. though has long voiced his opposition to the project the united states commands all our european partners who've taken a strong stand against north stream to. and we commend others to do the same germany is totally controlled by russia because they were getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from russia and a new player in this pipeline if completed would make europe even more dependent on russian energy would generate billions of dollars for putin billions of dollars that would follow in the russian military aggression. we don't want europe's energy supplies to be depended on flatter me or putin meanwhile russia and ukraine seem to
3:10 am
find a solution to their dispute save energy supplies they had disagreed on a contract that allowed russia to send gas to europe via ukraine but the 2 have now come to a settlement a new agreement is supposed to maintain gas transit between moscow and kiev for the next 5 years it will say states too that russia will pay ukraine almost $3000000000.00 to settle a long running dispute and then a more to kiev will draw up a legal case against moscow former u.s. diplomats into trashing jim and left party member piano toughest soli believe that america's approach she's souring relations with europe when they say oh this will cover in ukraine out of the transit they will they will get less money but really think they care about ukraine they will carry by ukraine a lot and the only reason they would be concerned about rue you brain being cut out already transit sees is that if that would be make it more difficult to put pressure on russia by having a puppet ukrainian hand on the lawn with regard to europe's
3:11 am
a gash you know that is no longer the case and all we're really talking about is ukraine being included in a more cooperative relationship between europe and russia that's the worst possible outcome from the point of view of people in washington damage to the german american relations is down and. the idea that america is consciously imposing extra charity extraterritorial sanctions to the german economy to hurt the germans and syria is now firmly implanted into germany is why it's from the left to the right that is absolutely outraged by the actions of the us government. u.k. primary school was in the firing line this week after parents were angered by changes to the wording of traditional christmas carol white all primary school in the southeast of england has rejected several carols replacing for example little
3:12 am
lord with baby boy jesus critics though say the changes do emit the whole point of the celebration and some parents have reacted negatively. if he was just a baby boy named jesus there wouldn't be a celebration in the 1st place he's our lord and savior and king of all kings that's the whole point it's also a tradition is taking away the traditions of the country i believe my children have been discriminated against and they have been denied the freedom to fully express their faith christian belief and tradition of being 2nd feist and silenced in the name of inclusion and political correctness the words lord jesus are about the central message of christmas which is that god is with those in jesus to put it very simply but it's what christmas is about well the school says it does promote british values including tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs it has defended the me by saying that some students did not attend last year's service
3:13 am
because of their religious beliefs and it wants to include all peoples during the festive period we discussed the issue with him peace from christian concern and also with the social commentator no answer. christianity and the whole reason why we celebrate christian christmas is because jesus was born as a human being and yet it was god as well and came down and it's an incredible thing to think that god became a human being but that's what actually happened and that's what we're celebrating here and they wanted to move that reference as well as jesus being king and jesus being savior if we don't have those things what are we celebrating i think it's a massive distortion let's be quite clear jesus wasn't god he was our greed from a theological perspective not agree he was a mighty messenger a prophet there is very little theological evidence the public space and the educational space is one which is secular it does not mean it is bereft of theology or education of belief or conscience but is inclusive of it so if we want to have standing advisory councils and religious education that include all strains of all
3:14 am
walks of life of humanism as well and atheism of people who want to come in there with so of more free n.g.'s they are included nowadays and the question is whether children should be free to opt out from an itty bitty where is mary jesus a baby and all the question that it is not decided on in a stable which isn't true i think that sets the parents of the think still composition i think they could come a watch if they wanted to they're really so upset about people saying jesus or that they have to not even be in the same presence there's something to talk about there why are they so upset about people saying jesus is lord i can't even go watson and observe it you know and so i think i want to discuss that with them but ultimately i want to respect their rights if they want to opt out of it they cannot sign of it another person is to be made for that the head teacher has seen that she has had 60 people who last year opted out from religious services worshipful activities and under the education act collective worship is wholly or broadly of a christian tradition but it doesn't have to be a particular question is not what they did i was out that's not
3:15 am
a commercial you want to opt out no none of that the question you know you'll just go to the car see the presenters whether you should tell us the wording if it's not what a people should opt out if one agrees that they're not out. well i will just as my only reason i don't have one place is not a question of my city where this is a change the wording of traditional carols through a move to keep a leaf of christianity into something that's non-christian after all that's the question islam is best is the completion of god's revelation we are not here to supersede christians we have to live alongside people and one another and in a modern secular society in the educational space we need to have a plural system where everybody is welcome this is the same old tired arguments that some so. how do i know you know migrants i mean when you have a situation that was a christianity i know you say sure she is not welcome you saying belief in fact is the one so much as i. said although i would say all of what i did to you then i will say that's of christianity you are the one that's being intolerant here
3:16 am
because you're saying they shouldn't sing the well i miss it all that's the it's all an attitude here by we had early this week now still to come this hour series of chilling sketches produced by any mighty kuantan and i have shed more long term hype the cia have tortured prisoners we'll have a look at this just off the bat. you know world big partisan group a 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. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
3:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic developments only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. again this week the russian president held his annual q. and a session with journalists from home and abroad event took place in moscow's world trade center man for over 4 hours i'm glad i'm in fielded questions on both
3:18 am
domestic and international affairs with presidential terms in russia and the impeachment of donald trump among the key issues that were raised. what could be done is a current all the 2 in a row amendment we have 2 terms in a row yours truly served 2 terms then resigned and had the constitutional right to return to the presidency because it was not up to attorneys in a row and the amendment confuses some of our political scientists and public figures so it could be counseled much. when it's just a continuation of political infighting one party that lost the election of the democratic party is working with result through other methods accusing trump of collusion with russia but then it's discovered that there was no inclusion that
3:19 am
can't be the basis for impeachment now they've come up with pressure on ukraine i don't know what's this your representatives have a better idea. it was girls or as for statements from certain people various political figures about russia about me as the head of the country i've been used to treating this accordingly but i know what the interests of my country are and that it doesn't matter at all what anyone else says there is absolutely no value in comparing what they say with the fundamental tasks which russia is interested in solving congratulations to boris johnson nevertheless he turned out to be the winner he understood the mood of the british people better than his political opponents. have been cast over the credibility of the international chemical weapons watchdog the a.p.c. more leaked emails published by wiki leaks reveal concerns from yet another member of the team that investigated an alleged attack on the ground in the syrian city
3:20 am
during the last year he says the final report into the instance suppressed and distorted their findings. the fact finding mission report does not reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to doom or only one fact finding mission team member a paramedic of the so-called fact finding mission core team was in duma we are not insisting on being right in our assertions but we are demanding to be heard we have been stonewalled throughout by obfuscation exclusion and even thuggish and bullying behavior. the alleged chemical attack in april last year reportedly killed dozens of civilians in response the united states and its nato allies france the u.k. were quick to conduct air strikes against syrian military targets the biggest western military action of the 8 year war. then later point experts to the scene to investigate and their subsequent report pin the blame on the syrian government our senior correspondent has been looking at the revelations. i don't know about the 3
3:21 am
little piglets but the o.p.c. w is having its house blow right down from the inside the 1st whistle blower they dismissed the 2nd they sort of excuse themselves and now in what is an absolute bombshell their most qualified inspector the f.f.s. report does not reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to duma i found that i was being excluded from the work for reasons not made clear allegedly the only team member who went to syria and there was allowed to cool write this syria report was the team paramedic and of the chemical inspectors were allowed to pitch in i attempted to submit my report to the f.m. team leader who's starting from the 15th of february 29th teen after noting continued reluctance from the f f m team to receive my report i deposited the
3:22 am
report in d r a for collection on the 27th of february 29th and advised all relevant persons of this shouldn't have bothered it seems no one wanted to read it 48 hours later the u.p.c. w. published its 1st report and sutherland had a really taken a razor to it so much so that the actual team that went to syria didn't recognize it the consensus within the f f m team was that there were indications of serious inconsistency eason findings the conclusions appear to have been turned completely in the opposite direction. now that we can exist publish what the preliminary report looked like here's what the u.p.c. w. deleted one evidence that contradicted witness testimony meaning what the alleged witnesses said deferred wildly from the hard evidence found by inspectors to the fact that the hospital videos which seuss shocked the world will think the victims were all actors the spade symptoms inconsistent with chlorine poisoning or
3:23 am
poisoning with anything found at the scene 3 and this is the big one in the final report they found chlorine not how much just chlorine which you can fire did your kitchen in any home in any swimming pool maybe you're right what about removing trace or some other wording may work i'm still worried that a stock standard phrase such as chlorine containing compounds were detected or similar present the danger of it being misrepresented as a damning conclusion it's a political word smithing situation not purely technical and it was the anti acid war hawks trumpeted the fact what the u.p.c. w. did is akin to saying you found radioactive materials in someone's house without mentioning it was a tiny amount used in far alarms and this on top of previous whistleblower revelations hard math cast doubt that the canisters at the scene were ever dropped
3:24 am
their observations of the scene in the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were money placed at those 2 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft it all began with ian henderson when he 1st blew the whistle he was mocked smeared insulted u.p.c. w. claimed he wasn't even part of the team they lied leaked documents clearly show he was working for the u.p.c. w. shame on the o.p.c. . w. you are aware of the highly questionable behavior surrounding this f.m. we as others in the team who would like to but are unable are questioning the work practices follow during this investigation this is more than a rebellion this is a catastrophe for the u.p.c. w a best this is a case of gross negligence worse than i pray i'm wrong this is corruption corruption in the very organization that's supposed to keep the world's safe from
3:25 am
chemical weapons either way from now or when the o.p.c. w. says something people are going to be thinking twice before taking their word for it. a series of chilling sketches produced by an inmate at guantanamo bay have been published in a report called how america torches the pictures illustrate the so-called enhanced interrogation techniques that were used against abu zubaida between 20022005 he was captured at if you had a safe house in pakistan in 2002 and was then sent to a so-called cia black sites in thailand and his drawings to relate to the alleged torture there he was then transferred to guantanamo bay where he's still being held without charge he was the 1st person to be subjected to the brutal interrogation program which was approved by the administration of george w. bush and it's since been acknowledged by the cia here's
3:26 am
a quick overview of what happened. as soon as they locked me up inside the box i tried my best to sit up but in vain for the box was too short i tried to take a curled position but to no avail for it was too tight the very strong pain made me scream unconsciously. they kept pouring water and concentrating on my nose and my mouth until i really
3:27 am
felt i was drowning and my chest was just about to explode from the lack of oxygen . the. long hours went by while i was standing in that position my hands were tight to the upper bars. it felt like an eternity to the point that i found myself falling asleep despite the water being thrown at me by the guard. in the wake my colleague you know neal spoke to the inmates lawyer he says the u.s. isn't transparent when it comes to the treatment of guantanamo detainees. as he suffered any lasting physical psychological. torture. well you know he
3:28 am
must you know anybody would but it's i've visited him $67.00 times a year or several days. and it's really quite hard to see 'd any of that america's years in the midst of adjustments because of what techniques were used on him the waterboarding may have produced some problems were feared the fact is they were used on him for 17 straight you did it is. road you didn't want to. believe he's not going to face any charges he has not faced any charges then the clear issue is here why it's being kept for so long in kuantan him obey. like it is yes or is there is no question that for 17 years he has never been charged i reverted for 10 years we've asked repeatedly for him to 'd be charged with crimes
3:29 am
and that is very frustrating but they do it in c. in the cia if it is in the united states. as found he was never a member or nothing to do. 'd or ever did in terrorist 'd acts what's the purpose all that when it's been shown to to essentially fail to yield accurate information from many suspects. so i think it failed to. produce accurate intrusions from almost anybody it's certainly the seal to attract any. to any accurate information throws a bit harder because they didn't know it accountability is that. i would love to meet people who are the. terms of their merger the right always 'd the forward 'd not backwards the problem we have right now is what if they don't what words but digital were stored there are going to remain stuck. no i don't. 'd
3:30 am
believe there are many. or all right what they. 'd are. not is how this yet we can excite find the sunday morning here we're not going to have a company we're back again and the topic. was the night before christmas and all over the world people are mining back on seeking individual sovereignty so no problem i just read what you think. is this is a stick up for hold water bottle found in the stomach of a fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day.
