looking forward to that little. yanks this is what happens to pensions in britain. as we were. standing in one of the creators left by the bombardment it's about 8 meters in diameter our correspondent reports from the war torn region shelling has intensified despite a cease fire between the belligerents armenia and azerbaijan. attacks outside the disputed territory with civilian casualties reported in raids on this very city. terror returns to france where a teacher is beheaded after reportedly showing his class cartoons of the prophet muhammad. and washington rejects russia's proposal to extend a major nuclear arms treaty between the nations just months away from
3:01 am
a. very good morning to you this is r.t. . the capital of the disputed they're going to care about region has been struck by several powerful explosions overnight despite a now we long cease fire agreed between armenia and azerbaijan reports on the ground claim air raid sirens went off multiple times but the extent of the damage is currently unclear local stuck in their basements the rockets are believed to have also struck the area that surrounds the city these are pictures from a nearby village injuries have been reported there. the number of regions where fighting is flared up in the going occurred about has been growing since tensions between barcoo and you're a van over the disputed territory boiled over at the end of september the 2 sides are trading accusations of attacks blaming each other for civilian casualties and
3:02 am
damage inflicted as aversions president meanwhile announced that his country has reclaimed 3 cities in the going to karabakh something our media denies our correspondent is in the region and reports on what life is like there after the latest strikes. this place could very easily be mistaken for the front line of nagorno karabakh but it isn't it's a small sleepy village of. also commonly known as red bazaar and last night it was battered by a very fire standing in one of the craters left by the bombardment it's about 8 meters in diameter. it was about 7 o'clock i wanted to park the car in the yard and the cluster bombs had been dropped there on the cast iron explodes and splinters everywhere with a radius up to a few 100 metres today for example my house wasn't damaged but our neighbors windows were smashed someone's roof was broken in the door we already used to it it
3:03 am
was. like all villages of nagorno karabakh red bazaar resembles a ghost town it's not the 1st time that it's been bombed in this escalation there's also a monotonous rhythm made by the sounds of artillery fire coming from over the horizon but those who have chosen to stay are saying that they have gotten used to this new and gruesome soundtrack to their lives his sister the kind of life can that be during war everyone hides in basements even if a bomb drops a kilometer away the houses shake which we know that is close to ours is of course it's scary especially when the bombs dropped nearby but i'm not going to leave anyway all the youngsters and men stayed here some of them are serving in the army depending on their age. but here it's just an echo of the fighting that is raging some 50 kilometers to the south from here around the town of drought there is no
3:04 am
way of saying for sure who is in control of this heavily contested region which is considered to be the gateway into nagorno-karabakh thing is it's one of the biggest problems about covering this conflict the lack of opportunities to independently verify the claims of both sides but one. in fact is certain the fighting there is absolutely brutal despite the cease fire that was announced a whole week ago but as of now there's no mechanism of enforcing the truce on the ground and as long until this mechanism is implemented the fighting won't seize by itself and we've done of reporting from the going to karabakh r.t. . meanwhile the conflict has again spill beyond the confines of the disputed territory as a budge on claims 13 people were killed in a shelling raid in the early hours of saturday morning over 50 people were injured in azerbaijan 2nd largest city of ganja rescue efforts are ongoing residential buildings reportedly hit in the attack is every president calls it
3:05 am
a war crime is about a response on the battlefield. another azerbaijani city tried repeatedly came under fire this week. of carrying out the attacks. day as about johnny journalist reports from the area. i mean is it told to region officer vision it is safe here now but a few days ago simply turning on all camera lights would have restyle lives with guns firing at any source of light and do regions. and good boy came to the fire for armenian armed forces for example will be. taught or district we hear shells exploding no more than a few 100 meters from us fighting continues along the front line and civilians are caught in the media for example yesterday during a funeral procession shell exploded. killing 5 people in one day and
3:06 am
another 5 shells he also residential buildings and the main road people here in dark leave their nerves never knowing when shells were start falling again. the french president of the new micron has branded the beheading of a history teacher in a paris suburb an islamist terror attack a man killed the teacher after he reportedly showed his class cartoons of the prophet mohammed during a lesson earlier this month. with a. little guilty. because. one of our compatriots was murdered because he taught freedom of expression the
3:07 am
freedom to believe or not it will lead to this you are going to crash it was the victim of an islamist terror attack and the thought that the or we. could just live to paris now our correspondent in french other dubious has been following their sound and also arrests that have been made there what are the facts at this point john. when the stand there have been arrests that have taken place overnight following searches in that region the northwest of paris they are related to that attack on the 47 year old history teacher who's been named in the french media as samuel patty now we understand of those 9 arrests one is a minor and 2 are said to be parents of children who were at the school where some your party taught in just to give you a sense of the reaction that we're getting here in france it is incredible people condemning this brutal attack and shocked as they're waking up to find out the news
3:08 am
of exactly what happened not far away from the french capital let's take a listen to what some of the local reaction was in the area where the teacher was beheaded. it is the school that is attacked it is the republican school that is attacked it is secularism that is attacked and the shock is obviously considerable . well the alleged assailant took a picture of the beheaded body and posted it on social media in the moments following that terror attack that tweet is since been removed but in that post the alleged attacker said that he carried out the attack because the teacher had showed those images of the prophet mohammed in a freedom of speech lesson just a few weeks ago now a mom of the grand mosque of bordeaux has condemned this attack as being vile and
3:09 am
norm muslim. whatever the thought the believe even that in sort of the caricature of the other nothing justifies the fact of killing the so it is the mortal capital soon to kill a person like that to carve his throat like that all because it showed caricaturists of the prophet. there's also been reaction from the satirical magazine sharlee abdo which is known for its publications of those controversial cartoons of the prophet mohammed which started that wave of terror back in 2015 here in france they've described it as being intolerable that this intolerance has crossed now a threshold here in france i just put this in some context just 3 weeks ago there was an attack outside the former offices of charlie hebdo when an 18 year old stabbed 2 individuals because the magazine had we published those controversial cartoons to coincide with the terror trial of terror trial relating back to that
3:10 am
attack on their offices in 2015 in which 12 people were killed and this also comes when there is a huge discussion here in france of the nature of the secularism of the french republic of course religion is separate to the law here in france and president macron outlined something that's been long awaited here which is his idea of how that separatism will be fought in the future a new law due to be drafted and released very soon but some aspects that we do know that will come from that is that much wants to fight for an influence here in france one of the reasons one things going to do to try and fight that is to make sure that arabic is taught in schools and not in mosques so that children perhaps can't be indoctrinated and they'll be quote says strict scrutiny of religious associations and home schooling will be banned apart from in circumstances related
3:11 am
to health because this comes at a time when there are also polls showing that almost 3 quarters of muslims who responded to that under the age of $25.00 say that they would put their faith above the laws of the republic and that is really concerning many people who are wondering whether this new draft law will be enough to tackle the problems that france has seen in regards to terror homegrown terror or where they are it's too little too late. many thanks all to do with a live report from france. moving on washington and moscow are at odds over the extension of a major nuclear arms control treaty this is after the u.s. pushed back against vladimir putin's proposal to extend it without preconditions for another year nikky aaron has been. as the clock ticks on the last remaining u.s. russian arms control treaty the united states and russia seem to be locked in a stalemate almost always suggesting an unconditional 5 year extension of the treaty the u.s.
3:12 am
wants quite extensive changes which moscow as called quite simply unrealistic now speaking earlier on friday president putin made a strong call to save the pact. i have a suggestion to prolong the existing treaty without any conditions for at least one year in order to have the opportunity to hold talks on all the matters regulated by such treaties and not to leave all the countries in the world interested in the preservation of strategic stability without such a fundamental document as destroyed did you can this reduction treaty and things between the 2 have escalated quite quickly with the u.s. even responding with threats if their conditions are not less. the united states is serious about arms control that will keep the entire world safe we hope that russia will re-evaluate its position before a costly arms race ensues now the issue is that washington wants a framework for a new trilateral treaty that covers all nuclear warheads and includes those of china in the future something which russia has objected to the new strategic arms
3:13 am
reduction treaty otherwise known as the new start treaty was signed in 2010 by u.s. president barack obama and russian president dmitry medvedev and the plan to limits each country to no more than $1550.00 deployed nuclear warheads and $700.00 deployed missiles and bonus and envisages sweeping on site inspections to verify compliance but the treaty is set to expire in feb 2021 so time is really of the essence here and the lack of an agreement and of course the tone of rhetoric between the 2 sides has raised concerns within the un it is imperative that the russian federation and united states of america extend with. the new start treaty for the duration of 5 years for the sake of all of our security must return to a common past towards nuclear disarmament now as you may remember last year saw the breakdown of the 987 intermediate range nuclear forces treaty so the new start is
3:14 am
the only nuclear arms control pact between the 2 sides that remains so needless to say the stakes are extremely high points to be taken in washington. state in washington what you don't think you can increase the danger to. the existence of all these weapons it's a low point i think there were points there were more than twice that very closely watched. the war. over the last 30 years out of. there through into those. who are. can see a bunch of those i'm production nuclear arms production. military industrial spending is the most. number one cost well that and. so there are very strong. in the united states and
3:15 am
yeah oh well i knew i was about meeting a man once that's. still to come this hour authorities in kamchatka are trying to get to the bottom of an ecological disaster which devastated the region's marine life will be having from the regional governor after the break.
3:16 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on us here in dramatic development. and going to exist i don't see that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down in the park. welcome back authorities in russia's region of contract to say that they so-called red tide was the main cause of massive marine life destruction which was 1st
3:17 am
reported off its coast in early october but some are questioning the conclusion that a phenomenon caused by a toxic algal bloom is to blame a red tide event that's when large masses of sea microorganisms and i'll grow exponentially in a given area killing off the marine life this is down to the fact some of those argue produce toxins or other types deplete the water of oxygen as they grow and subsequently decompose or discuss the environmental disaster in the ways to mitigate its impact with contact because governor i did me a solid one. mr governor thank you very much for doing this we really appreciate to understand where we stand mr governor would you officially call what happened in kentucky and environmental disaster there are several worst week were used to describe what happened disaster or just a phenomenon and never the worse so we. see for sure the skew of this phenomenon is biribi repressive and a large part of of well we're sure was about these deals of.
3:18 am
20 year around 20 people were harmed seek after the conflict with the ocean water so what is happening is very very serious and we know all very. grateful for the concern of the scientific society and it could logical activists all over the world. who want to all the good to know for sure what really happened what are the causes and what the consequences of these nature of the phenomenon orica ecological disaster is you wish. now we're talking about red tie as the main cause for this right as far as i understand absolutely when we say for sure right now the winds were dead because of the rate diets because of the microorganisms the appeared to be area be demanded in our waters by the fact that we don't know until now
3:19 am
is the reason of tights because in the previous years we never faced so large scale red tides yes it happened sometimes in some base of charkha but for the last 15 years we never faced such an impressive death of our american life right a week ago in one of your interviews mr governor you mentioned the red tide saying initially i didn't take it seriously to be honest so what happened 87 days to completely tank your mind i am not specialist in biology i am not a scientist and as a simple personally being can chart of course for me when i heard that those microorganisms could cause such a massive death of. a 1000000 inhabitants of our hydro at once was like
3:20 am
a joke but we know very few about ocean and i used to believe do serious scientists who now say that it is not a unique phenomenon that we faced it before not in such scale but still. and they explain very slowly what the mechanisms we are happening in the cost of these this fact are going to come back to this international cooperation but it may 1st finish where the causes is the red tide the only reason for the mass deaths. of sea life nikken task i think small and i still consider another factor is as well we are considering all the facts and to be a want to of course we do we i mean human beings do or serious psychological harm to our nature on there is a number of technological factors that may influence over me and they're not of
3:21 am
such importance because i reminded we seen know of the death of 100 miles on the ocean shore of for several 100 kilometers it is impossible to influence with even acknowledge equal course but nevertheless my point is that we should do all we can do to me come charkha purest and then we'll take a logical really responsive and safe place on our us but there are still those who do not agree with the official explanation it's not a secret for your course mr governor they still insist that it is a man made. disaster and what would you say to that our response is very simple it is the absolute openness and transparency we invite everybody who is concerned about the political situation to come charkha who wants to investigate all the facts and all the analytics we care of that is why we publish every day all
3:22 am
the results of analysis taken in hundreds of numbers on our official website and we invite all in a logical organization doesn't matter where it is non-governmental. organization from russia or abroad to participate and i welcome everybody who wants to participate in these. in this investigation moreover i wrote several letters to our international police to all the researchers scientists abroad in the in the best in universities in tokyo in beijing in mit boston in california technological university we already have some some and discussion with them it is not official collaborations to you and i think that we should in ours we should organize
3:23 am
a kind of international conference to discuss results and possible reaction of of all of us to these to this disaster are you going to invite them to kentucky or due to chronic virus pentad make their work will be done remotely i asked a russian government to do a nominee in the scientific board that will be responsible for further investigation from scientific point of view because i'm not a researcher i don't understand much in biology of a sci fi caution i hold that during this week the scientific board will be appointed and their task will be to continue to get into organized this conference of course no we are in in complicated situation due to 19 and i guess the 1st step will be remodeled but the then i will be glad to host here
3:24 am
research has been used to getting in the field what is happening with our ecology now the red tide is a global phenomenon indeed and we're seeing these in the us mexico tailing. i understand there are a few details so far but maybe there is any. nation for now why it happened in kentucky and why now it is not for the 1st time it could. happen in 970 s. . sort. of in a human deaths after eating seafood by its now the level the mart of ducks occasion is less serious but still we will may say that even in this region in these part of ocean it happens from time to time scientists do not have the answer why it happened of course we cared very
3:25 am
warm summer and climate change may influence different processes in the ocean and in the year is the heart of the human being are doing do that ocean in global scale there too much of this car ocean is giving their response to us to humans seeing that enough and you should stop you should change something in your behavior i absolutely i most of the sure myself that we have human cost reasons of this phenomenon and we should ask ourselves what we should do what we should change dual to avoid repeating. serious red. mess of death of 100 violence in future yes i understand this is among the priority questions right now what whites should be done to prevent this to happen in the future while the mother nature he's sending us signals and talking to us yes
3:26 am
a way like what change our behavior completely it's doesn't seem to be possible and one day i would suggest the 1st thing to do is to implement. the holistic monitoring of the marine ecology bigger. right now there are dozens of organization of institutions that are investigating making an analysis of what happening in the ear and in water but there is no universal platform or just what stop shop for people interested in this information what is even more important that we should create the interface for those who want to pretty simply to share the defaulters the videos with the griffith tags solved and researchers who take care of the holistic invasion as far as this possible the 2nd 2 are used to very thorough work on our past because logical hard it is to win our earth you know one
3:27 am
region speaking about come charkha 3rd thing is that we should change the way we think about ecology which should make our behavior more responsive more interval i mean we should stop in our everyday life using so much plastic producing so much liter promoted to ecological friendly behavior you're absolutely right that we can it change the behavior you know one day but we should start right now because otherwise consequences might be very very hard very important and what we see right now you know where the logical system income childcare is just an example now let's go back to the disaster kentucky is facing right now to the beginning of that as far as i remember you received the 1st signals from surface some of whom you met before and this is how you saw the tag on social media and if i'm not
3:28 am
mistaken it was on september 29th right around there week after he officially became kentucky's governor so what exactly happened next we're steps we're taking and what possible reason this potential causes were investigated i reacted to mediately and i asked to. those who are responsible for making analysis of the quality of water to do it on the same day and after that every day with it hundreds often nurses and hundreds of investigations in order to try to define what is the poisoning. substance the think we are surprised is that could identify these again these posing substance we tried again and again and we investigated all of our potentially dangerous. knowledgeable objects close to noon to the ocean shore but found nothing around to 5 or 6
3:29 am
days scientists started talking about these nature will nature will reason. it is now a dominant version that is so mr governor thank you so much for your time we really appreciate i wish you good luck with your efforts to save nature and to preserve. and i wish your way to a quick recovery thank you so much thank you and thank you for your concern us and and your interest in what is happening i'm sure will make our work and showed and have a planet even a better place to leave. you right up to date really appreciate your company here at r.t. this morning with updates in 30 minutes. a dark industry comes to life in los angeles every night. dozens of women sells their bodies on the street many of them under-age. los angeles police reveal
3:30 am
a taste of their daily challenge you know if you're going to exploit a child here in los angeles we're going to come out you see officers going undercover as 6 workers and customers to fight the 6 trades. when you look at you know it's it's been 153 years since emancipation when you look at it's been 400 years right since black people have been in the u.s. and extracting their labor for the construction of the country and then you think that black people on about 2 percent of us wealth in a disproportionately high is category almost everything that's negative i just don't say that that i don't see how anybody anywhere it defined as as a whip.
