intercept him and that is when he detonated his device now if you look around if. this is late on a wednesday evening rush hour a lot of people in the streets. the car here completely destroyed this building also you can see there's damage in the upper floors this must have been an incredibly powerful blast now if we walk this way we think this this blast really did happen so recently that they haven't had a moment to clean up the blood right here we don't know if this is. ok you're probably feeling. pretty good we're not exactly sure what's happening there some kind of motion right now you can see there's kurdish authorities here trying to keep calm but again of this just took place now the background to all of this very hotly contested city that there are kurds arabs the sunnis shias christians turkmen this is a very violent city that has seen many explosions many clashes over the years since
the isis the islamic state in iraq and syria militants made their push in northern iraq the iraqi army have essentially fled from these areas allowing the kurds to come in and take control of a lot of people in the city are not happy about that and we're not sure whether this is a top was retribution perhaps for the kurds reasserting their control over this territory they belong claim this as their historic and cultural capital. oh look. it's really not safe to be here the authorities have been shooting their weapons. into the air we're not sure what's going on but we're going to get out of here before any other tension erupts there hasn't even been a chance to verify the casualties verify exactly what was the target but we do believe that it was the kurdish political office yesterday we had a chance to speak with the governor of the critical province he said that this is a very very calm city that there haven't been problems with the taps that security
was actually getting better and one of the things that is very clear here from what we see today that that's far from the case the sea captain of your quick. hits continue to push through iraq there's no part of society unaffected you know seeing footage apparently showing children joining the ranks of isis young boys as seen holding automatic rifles while traveling with a convoy of rebels human rights watch claims that in syria isis fighters are already recruiting children the snipers but their role in iraq has not been confirmed. the u.s. has an official request from baghdad to launch airstrikes in iraq but isis supporters have threatened to avenge any strike with attacks on americans you can get the details on this story as well as live updates on the ongoing crisis in iraq at r.t. dot com. now the u.s. is ready to relax fresh tanks sanctions against russia over the crisis in ukraine
if as it says moscow will not deescalate the situation is european allies are echoing the threats and while the measures are designed to damage russia's economy the plans are also sending shivers through american big business is important reports. as the u.s. and its western allies consider a third round of economic sanctions against russia the two biggest u.s. business organizations are warning that the move would long lasting damage to america's economy the u.s. chamber of commerce and the national association of manufacturers reportedly plan to run advertisements in the new york times the washington post and the wall street journal saying the only effect of additional sanctions would be to bar u.s. companies from foreign markets and cede business opportunities to firms from other countries u.s. companies fear that even temporary targeted sanctions against russia would damage
their export markets and poison relations with russian customers business leaders say potential restrictions on technology transfers would also harm u.s. energy companies that do business in russia this is precisely what moscow warned back in march when foreign minister lavrov said any sanctions imposed on russia would come back to hurt the united states the white house told bloomberg news that the obama administration has had frequent conversations with business leaders on the issue and understands their concerns but that the u.s. can't just go on with business as usual now the obama administration is threatening to impose more sanctions on russia despite its recent steps to deescalate the crisis in ukraine at the request of president vladimir putin russian lawmakers voted tuesday to revoke legislation allowing for the use of military forces in your brain however it seems the white house is still expecting and demanding more from moscow. washington d.c.
well russia being an emerging market with growing incomes has become quite attractive for u.s. companies in the possibility of being cut off from the market is making america's business bosses a bit nervous so let's take a look at who is involved in russia boeing boeing is nearly a third of its titanium here and also one of the fastest growing markets used to pepsi and america's common factors also have a huge interest in the russian market to general motors and ford who sold tens of thousands of vehicles last year. the next set of sanctions could target russia's energy sector but that could also be a big blow to u.s. and european energy giants who have a lot of interest in russia too some energy bosses were spotted at the latest petroleum congress in moscow he's the c.e.o. of exxon mobil rex tillerson bob dudley who's also here he's the head of british petroleum as was the boss of norwegian oil giant stat or the many there did say that they wanted to keep politics away from business but there isn't really
a strategic. relationship is developing. according to the culture so we don't believe this kind of problems we want these. some in the u.s. business community fear even temporary sanctions could end up in long lasting damage to their russian exports economic expert from the university of massachusetts richard wolfe says american companies have good reason to be worried . the united states has direct an interest in direct investments in russia it has made plans to get access to russian energy it has made plans to get financial benefits by banking deals between russian banking and financial officials and americans and if it's russia there's a reaction against pressure from the united states then there are ways in which all kinds of companies in the united states will suffer losses we don't know how bad
they'll be we don't know how long they'll last but we haven't a global capitalist crisis right now and companies are very worried even about relatively small threats to their ability to function and that's particularly true with financial interests which is where the tensions with russia could have some effect. while latest figures show the u.s. economy has suffered its worst performance in five years but unexpected help was quick to come in just a few minutes time you can see how the chinese billionaire is doing his bit to help the worst affected offering findin a new people i'm promising to give each of them we hundred don't. phase it increased us police brutality towards the public again ground report by american civil liberties union has revealed that seven people were killed and forty six injured as

piano survived but it was four small children that were living in this space where this explosive device was thrown there had been reports that there was no way to know that there were young children in this household so that is totally false what this raid and the situation with the family what you're representing say about the american police system about militarization who exactly are they arming up against we find statistically that people of color people in low income areas and communities get built with this kind of blunt force if you're really influential community or if you have any influence personally you tend to get a knock at the door are even a courtesy call same surrender. the drugs the swat saying we're searching for were never found in the boy's parents and adam ending a federal investigation into what happened to this who's not alone by the way this
