another weekend of yellow vest rallies descend into violence and looting as protesters are greeted by heavy police response. a very warm welcome to the weekly here on r t international where we bring you the top stories from the past week. new zealand was rocked by terror on friday when a gunman killed fifty people at two mosques in the city of christ church dozens of others were injured a man has been charged with one count of murder in connection with the attack the suspect is thought to have posted a white supremacist manifesto online. please
local time minutes later reports came in of a second attack on a mosque five kilometers away the country's prime minister described what happened as one of new zealand's darkest days artie's medina question about reports. the deadliest terror attack a new zealand's history they attack was so brutal it resembled a video game. this is one of new zealand's darkest days. the gunman was a live streaming the attack from had to mounted camera that atrocity lasted for almost twenty minutes the footage showed him firing from close range it was the
only after some time but the video has already spread far and wide social media giants fay's book and twitter are now under a scrutiny for their failure to stop the extremists material or their facebook twitter you tube and other providers have taken action to remove the video and other propaganda related to the attack the government has been clear that old companies need to act more quickly to remove terrorist content no safe spaces for terrorists to promote and share their extreme views and breaded lies others there were also pictures of the guns he posted on twitter the firearms to what we call verge with anti islamic slogans and various languages his account has been blocked since then but what made this young australian kill all these people in cold blood so new zealand well he assumes to have plenty attack carefully at least that's
according to the documents a sort of a manifesto that appeared on line several hours prior to the attack and believed to be a linked to the at. hacker and now a lengthy document he identifies himself as a fascist and he carried out the attack to save all you or peons from nonwhite invaders new zealand wasn't his first choice but it sure was his last enough to show that there are no safe places and the world we new zealand. we were not a target because we are a safe for those who hate. we were not chosen for the sake of violence because we condone racism because we're an on clay for extremism. we would chosen for the very fact that we none of these things we discussed the terror attack with our guest political and social commentator are a middle east expert
a risk. i think this wouldn't be a that much of a surprise that in fact this attack reminds me of the guitar which was carried out to by the you know way german brevik who carried out a similar attack if you recall in norway going to immigrants and also against the muslims who unfortunately we do have this ferrari in what we call white supremacy and terrorism and that's why that i think is the correct or accurate name a more accurate description which we should give to you know this whole hateful ideology and it really we do need to drain the swamp and we do need to go off these people who allow these far right groups to in complicity grow and get funding. to spread who are the ones who support them where does the money go we need to follow the money we need to find out how these groups are allowed to thrive because it is a real problem now for more on the ramifications of what happened in new zealand head to our web site r.t.
dot com. now to the french capital where the latest yellow vests rallies descended into vandalism and looting saturday's protest the eighteenth of its kind in consecutive weekends was met with a heavy police response artie's pasir is that the center of the unrest. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you thank you. the situation here on the some cities is getting increasingly more violence the
demonstrators. have been using cost foxholes they've been using firecrackers and they've also been destroying a number of buildings is a bank in a side street that has burned down and a number of kiosks have also been completely destroyed and for that reason we have been ambulances coming in and out and also a number of fire brigades to come and put out the fire thanks thank god this is the eighteenth consecutive week at a speed chase here both phytic acid is really really intense and we've got the canisters that are being thrown at us at the same time with the protesters that are approaching good but. at the at the octave thank you. there does seem to be a more heavy police presence today but protesters saying that this is really the
ultimatum that they're giving the crowd to step down. the protests are getting more and more violent and things continue to be bent over here further by police not just in front of us so we caught between the riot police and the protesters so. we're just going to have done a little but that could cost in flames. thank you thank the country's interior minister saying that they believe there are about one and a half thousand of these protesters who are here just to cause damage and just to cause violence so he these are the most violent scenes we've seen in paris in recent weeks but it's reminiscent of the chaos the frustration and the anger against president maccollins government. thanks people are still out on the street. they've been here since early this
morning and that's a cost bottle that's been thrown the scenes continue to unfold and this despite the fact that the great debate which the french president mccrone initiated ended yesterday more than seventy percent of french saying that they believe that it is simply a waste of time the french president certainly will continue to struggle to contain this anger on the streets of paris. paris. the u.k. parliament again hit gridlock overbrook said with m.p.'s instructing the prime minister to seek a deadline extension from europe that sparked fears that breaks that process will never end. it's just going all the no no no no no every two weeks we come around on the merry go round we make the same speech all over again and still ride all road and hope we
know what it is. we have a responsibility to in the other certainty put all our constituents. to be beautiful. day in d.c. you know remains that the u.k. would leave the e.u. without a deal. lest something else is of predicted this is a waste of time in the length of time for all change the deal is dead it cannot be resurrected teahouse bludgeon does blackcomb blue without breaking a food deal the country's being misled and now the plan is being mislaid.
a third so-called meaningful vote on teresa mayes breaks a deal will take place next week if m.p.'s reject it she will ask brussels for a long deadline extension potentially lasting years depending on their reaction back home that could trigger a general election or even a second referendum but if m.p.'s passed may's deal last brussels for a shorter extension until june the thirtieth if no extension is granted or no deal is agreed in whatever time frame is adopted the u.k. could crush out of the block we've got reaction to the latest developments from our guests. the government have made the biggest mess in history the prime minister's
utterly incompetent she should never have had the job she got there by accident and she just led from one catastrophe to the next she lied to the public when she stood for office she said she was going to give them breaks it she's trying to do everything to prevent it and if we end up having to stay beyond a certain period we have to take part in the european elections then what you had to see is seventy three nigel for raj use returned to the european parliament you've got to ask yourself whether this is a complete and utter incompetence or whether there's a plan on that and i've always said we are really find out until the twenty ninth of march i think this is my is completely incompetent but it is she's carrying out somebody else's plans it was done time in the parliament and i can hear the squeak from here across the river just what does britain do next ask for an extension how long one month two months what will change in the one month two months. i've
already said there's no for those negotiations possible source of action it's likely that something dramatic has to be done to break this logjam and my money is now on a general election. more of the past week's headline news coming up in just a minute. but. i do think the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime tamping. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be ultra rich eight percent world market rose thirty percent some with one hundred to five hundred three per second per second and that one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only
number you need to remember one one business you know ford commit one and only boom but. they take it as because at that has become a trap what you don't stay in that game if you it gives it not think that one way is to leave the j.c.b. us but more dangers for your god because it's good feedback to the audience to do even the bush. welcome back in rights watch has released a damning report exposing torture and abuse of youngsters suspected of having links to islamic state in iraq the group says the iraqi and kurdish authorities routinely for suspects some as young as fourteen years old to confess using harsh methods the
report features a number of first hand accounts. sort of sort of to show. what to mean shout i mean and so you know. by doing it in the factory you know if you are. going to still. going to spend the. time in order to totally but you can are you to care about. what is already a little boy. you know what mr oddjob what i just saw just just. and that's that decided that a lot and. decided to write about try to much much better. than other viruses africa. and you know and there was still a better way to identify how to. do this the better and. the report describes the kind of torture to which the detainees are allegedly subjected among the methods said to be used by kurdistan regional authorities are beatings with
plastic pipes and electric cables as well as the use of electric shocks and stress positions. according to human rights watch at the end of last year iraqi and kurdish authorities were holding some fifteen hundred children over their alleged affiliation with eisel at least one hundred eighty five foreign children have been convicted on terrorism charges and sentenced to prison terms we heard from one of the people behind the report. iraqi authorities or no vote or abuse from the. kurdish there have charged hundreds of minors acts of terrorism because of their alleged presumed belonging to a islamic states these prosecutions very often rely on very you know dots for my positions because if they are based on confessions that were tortured out of the kids. those children are number one considered us
combatants who are trying just as adult combatants and it is not fair that should be the international law is very clear and considers that children who are recruited by armed groups should be considered first and foremost i think that those who need rehabilitation and reintegration into society rather than imprisonment and torture. we recommended the government the iraqi government and purchase orders to immediately free all those guess who have not committed the crime as for those who are suspected of having committed crimes and other violent the direction well sure they should be tried but they should be tried accordingly to international rules and compelled to minors in all cases we recommend strongly that there is no practice of torture anymore and that investigations are open jewel hauled all the perpetrators accountable these are the recognition that we have addressed to the kurdish and the iraqi government and we
are to expect to get answers. we are awaiting comment on the allegations from the iraqi government the country's counter-terrorism laws do provide for the detention and trial of anyone involved with eisel that applies even if they have not committed violent crimes and only played support roles for example working us cooks or hospitals. spacecraft has successfully docked with the international space station it was carrying three crew members not so astronauts nick haig and christina koch as well as russian cosmonaut of human achievement and they were part of the mission to the i assess that was aborted in mid flight back in october of last year they were warmly welcomed aboard joining three other crew members of the i s s r t's maria for national witness the action. you can see the fifty ninth expectation to the international space station starts
oh my goodness look at this live. rocket in the sky to national board russia's. cheating and to nasa astronauts take a guy and christina colgan here people who have gathered here from all around the globe to witness the launch of loading because that was spectacular as you remember their previous mission in october didn't go well it was aborted made flight due to technical problems and just minutes off to lift all for a sneak and aleksei had to return to earth. this is where they were you think cap down some five hundred one of those from the
launch pad both of them were this way to would mean they've lost on multiple. good lengthy i don't think i've seen any pagan lended on harm i've been given that they have one with it to feel warm if there isn't a team ballistic defense many times more than the force of gravity while on the ground when no one was hurt either you want to meet their single sap or it obama going to long before they leave there we have never mind the powers that were it really isn't cool cooling think worth it if they grow flowers and bring flowers here all they have are sounds bad as well as wrong with what you want to praise call the emergency system. it is very emotional moment for everybody involved earlier i've had a chance to talk to some of these enthusiastic tourists let's take a listen to quit so we can see such an event only once in your lifetime one cannot
miss it it's a great occasion it's very interesting and it's a huge step into space for all of the country as we came last year in october to see the space launch and is now is a wonderful experience but they got it didn't get all the way up into space it was imported mission so we've just gotten our mind to come back again this is been a. dream of mine since i was five years old and to watch a rocky go off is to come here which is the birthplace of a russian space the russian space program for me is some emotional there is no long standing sort of ratio but it is just a long long standing journey that's our recap of just some of the stories that helped shape the world these past seven days stay tuned here for worlds apart on our two international.
after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the multiple different clubs on one hand it is logical to sort of know from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people by salt or not so you think. i'm going to talk about football not the or else you think i was going to do. by the way ways of that slide here. you'll find all. gets raised no. been a real gun shops to begin murders drawls all life. becomes
are in the last community young people are deciding if they want to not like their parents not like ten liberals. the blacks are always struggling school again you always have problems but you are going to focus a lot is the most ubiquitous going out there most police departments use it almost over stores in the school that they could get their hands on tomlinson twenty four hours. through it teach nice kids a bio racism about police brutality taking cried of them they are these kids are a part of all history. you know world of big partners through law 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. 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 we're watching closely watching the hawks. there. are a. lot of welcome to worlds apart by the end of this year at the number of things connected to the internet will exceed the number of people on this planet by several times this new reality of smart fringes and accommodating coffee makers
promises to take human conference to a whole new level but not without the cost is it even possible at this point to tell whether we are heading towards a utopia or a dystopia call to discuss that i'm now joined by a player on one kronenbourg the founder of the internet of things counsel i think tank dedicated to technological governance it was good to talk to you thank you very much for your time for having me i'm very honored to be here now first of all for those of our viewers who have never heard this term the internet of things and what exactly it is well it may have never heard of it but there sure encountered it so is the idea that everything all those things will be gone that's a sort of smart and in order to understand that we have to have to go back a little bit to what made this all possible which is the internet so the internet is basically. who can your computer so it's a protocol to have a language for computers to talk to each other. and up until the ninety's
there was sort of computers talking to each other and then around one in ninety three we got the world wide web h.t.m.l. tim berners lee who put this on top so we have this this language that says on the packet all these computers which is going like a virus across the world and then. we have w w h t m l on top of this and this is still happening in devices in computers in smartphones and tablets and what we see now is that because of basically two main trends one being the cloud this mess if amount of computer storage possibilities so before that we already had this kind of internet of things as automation in fact a reason the engineers they know that they have machines that it was mostly for computerese and yes people but now we're talking about pretty here. but now devices
like the fridge is the microwave coffee makers that are there and this is because of these these two trends or one of the cloud happening so in this made it possible to store all that data so beef in the ninety's we had the smart fridge the smart car the smart but this will all demos we essentially talking about the environment that allowed all those items that we use in our daily life to be connected not only . ourselves but also to each other yes and so. these that the cloud and the fact that things got incredibly cheap so hardware has become a commodity connectivity has become a commodity which means that it's very cheap and affordable and this indeed is made now possible for the connectivity to sort of leap out of the computer and become attached to your lamp so the lamp becomes a smart lamp and then all of a sudden very quickly all these objects that have
a little bit of microprocessor power in them are now reading out other objects and the other objects that are don't have this the capability to do that. they are becoming so we all know the barcode we know radio frequency identification . we know you are codes we know new field communication that's in your phone you put your phone to a cure or code to your code as a u.r.l. embed it now run back in two thousand and eleven you call all three of the manifest and we called on citizens to you we claim the politics of technology and engage more actively in regulating these new digital environment eight years on do you think now we are any closer to the idea of every citizen having an input in how this environment is run i think we should have and it should be like that with us
is the case is not the case it's not i mean of further away from from with then we were eight years ago depends on where you are on the planet sort of also because. i think so the first thing to have to understand and we all know like we're all simple people are we have our issues we have our problems and you like things to work and they're all working in so very convenient and this all happening so it's very difficult to zoom out and have this bigger picture of what is actually happening and do i like what is happening especially in again because it's so far so you have to and that's this social question here because in any kind of politics you need participants who have a basic level of competence in order to participate if we take and consumers as these political base and you compare them to political base do you think in the average they have enough knowledge and skill to even have an informed opinion a lot of.
