north korea says washington is begging for nuclear war just days after pyongyang tested its most powerful miss out today. and in the stories shake the week here and now it's a suicide at the hague as a former bosnian general swallows a pile of poison after his twenty year sentence for war crimes is upheld plus the french president calling for military action against human traffickers in libya countries left in ruins by the nato intervention of twenty eleven. followed their welcome you're watching r.t. on the weekly our look back at the last seven days as well as the latest developments to north korea says the u.s.
is begging for nuclear war the statement comes just days after pyongyang launched a new ballistic missile which it says is capable of reaching anywhere on the u.s. mainland that caused quite a reaction from washington and also a counter proposal from russia. little rocket man rocket fuel for the american. it was he is a sick puppy the dictator of north korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war not farther from it and if four comes make no mistake the north korean regime will be utterly destroyed. the americans should start with explaining their intentions to see if they are really looking for an excuse to destroy north korea as the u.s. envoy to the u.n. said at a security council meeting let them spell it out clearly and let the u.s. leadership confirm it then we will decide how to react what off the launch south
korea did stages own missile exercise. i it took place close to the border with the north no explains north korea's missile capability is growing in recent months early wednesday north korea suddenly broken over two month pause in weapons testing and showed a significant bump in their capabilities the missile is believed to be north korea's most powerful projectile to date let's break down the details during a flight the rocket reached an altitude of up to four thousand five hundred kilometers to put that in perspective that is more than ten times the height of the international space station and while that number does come from a statement from north korea it is in line with estimates released by both japan and south korea the missile splashdown off of japan's west coast but it has been reported that if missile had been fired on a standard path it could reach a target almost anywhere in the world including any part of the u.s.
but with higher frankly any previous shot taken it's a research and development effort on their part for you building to look out for the threat. everywhere in the world basically something likely to increase now reignited tensions is the fact that in less than a week the u.s. and south korea will again conduct drills on north korea's doorstep a practice that p.n. yang sees a blatant threat that they will not leave unanswered. i . russia and china have called for the maneuvers to be pause numerous times and light of the less than friendly climate but those suggestions have been ignored along with pleas to restrain from the back and forth name calling and aggressive rhetoric between the u.s.
and north korea that has been a trademark of this year this is all culminated in north korea possessing a nuclear bomb and a missile to deliver it anywhere allowing them to probably announce the conclusion of their nuclear program it looks like diplomacy may never be given a chance. that was good reporting well while north korea is attracting global condemnation some do believe that washington is making matters worse his gregory illich from the advisory board of the korea policy institute you know if it's really concerned about north korea's nuclear program we're going to buy a lot but the only way to resolve the problem and north korea third many many pies for you if you are not willing to give up a nuclear program unless the united states russia after all paula i think like a reasonable request. the more the united states wants to punish north korea the more they convince north korea that they need to develop their nuclear deterrent protect themselves so has the opposite of. our former bosnian croat
general who fought in the bosnian war in the early one nine hundred ninety s. committed suicide we are going to show you a video of exactly what happened so pleasing images. has taken poison. his trial there was part of the war crimes tribunals the incident took place right after the former bosnian triad military commander lost his appeal slobodan care was convicted of war crimes and given twenty years for his role in the conflict in the former yugoslavia. the yugoslav was the bloodiest conflicts in european history since the second world war tensions between a complex mix of nationalities forming the state of yugoslavia erupted into a bit civil war originate yugoslavia included six republics with different nationalities and religious groups.
the communist revolutionary and statesman tito who established the federal republic of yugoslavia managed to suppress nationalism to his death in the one nine hundred eighty s. relations among the republics quickly deteriorated with each of them seeking that aids the nine hundred ninety five genocide in tripoli needs to is one of the bloodiest pages in yugoslav history the massacre of malta in both the acts perpetrated by units of the bulls the inside of me resulted in their commander ratko adage being jailed for life by the un special court in november twenty seventh. but atrocities happened on old sites in one thousand nine hundred three sixty nine serbian civilians were killed by bosnia and herzegovina army forces in the scale on a massacre but an orthodox church. overall despite much evidence of war crimes conducted similar taney asleep by different forces the cia eventually declared said
militants were responsible for ninety percent of all crimes including genocide. tonight and they took those into action against yugoslavia it is indeed tragic that diplomacy has failed and later is now intervening in a war in a sovereign country. and eventually nato air campaign conducted a number of operations to undermine the military capability of the boss and me. to this day the un special court is still investigating war crime cases from the conflict. well a total of one hundred sixty one people have been indicted for war crimes in the former yugoslavia since the tribunals began which cross the t.'s were committed by all sides party to the conflict but longer sentences have been given to montenegrins counting up the total time of the jail terms serbian authorities to suggest that nearly fifteen hundred years were given to its nationals and that is
in contrast to three hundred croats and just fifty years for the former yugoslavia in republics however the un court is never investigated natives involvement in the war including the use of depleted uranium munitions some of the cases have been so lengthy in fact that several defendants have died while on trial at the hague the editor in chief of the news website the duran dot com says tribunals set up was flawed from the very start. the major criticism of the tribunals is that it is not being impartial it was set up in the in in the one nine hundred ninety s. in mainly at the instigation of the western powers out a time when the western powers were criticizing serbia and its government and the people of the serbian people of bosnia for the war in bosnia now that is a problematic steps because when the same people instigate the
setting up of the tribunals after they have already identified who they think is responsible for a war it becomes very difficult to expect that tribunals to act impartially. now also this week the french president tabled a new plan to combat human trafficking in libya that involves military action but emanuel proposal is drawing a lot of criticism too is the previous french led intervention in libya left the country in ruins has made against the f. explains. slavery and human trafficking of violent offenses sadly common now in libya but no need to fear president macron is here he has the solution for libya's problem send in the troops it's a necessity zone we are proposing police military action we are not waging war but
this is a country in a political transition political transition he calls it does sound better than as savage civil war more politically correct nevertheless a number of african and e.u. states are ready to help fight this war or rather not really a war says macron but a military operation still round two for france in libya. today we're intervening in libya we are intervening in order to enable the libyan people to choose their own destiny it must not be deprived of its rights by violence and terror the fact that slavery is so rampant in libya is because the country's army and political order were obliterated under nato bombardment six years ago since then libya has been stuck in a brutal and bloody political transition as president calls it or
absolute chaos and anarchy as anyone out sward call it as long as it is a failed state the problem will come back as a failed state because the regime of got our feet up was not mice for sheen operate it says that was destroyed by the french and british together in two thousand and eleven. well here's how the modern slavery problem has spread around the world at the moment africa does come out worst with seven point six people per thousand just below them is followed by asia and the pacific region and then central asia and europe there are third interesting li and. france itself has become a key human trafficking hub to recording to report at least by the u.s. state department here it is it does list the country as a destination and transit point for men women and children subject to forced labor and sex trafficking well we spoke to the vice president of the libyan presidential
council and asked him about plan for military action. we are going to be right but no. we cannot accept anything. to be done with our representative libyan libyans who would be the ones who do this . with the help of the world to come up. with way to help them. to write them grisman own country of origin libya is not the country of origin a democratic libya is a country of iran we are the libyan have already impressed on africa and we want to see anybody thought that they would give birth to their country of origin and put up this image of you to stay with their loved ones with their families. now the thirty thousand nations he will battle it out for the fee for world cup in russia next summer discovered their opponents on friday as the draw was made for the group
stages in moscow so here's how the aid groups are looking kicking off things on june fifteenth will be russia and saudi arabia they're angry at the capital's newly refurbished luzhniki stadium next to them in green bay that sees perhaps the most anticipated tired around putting rivals portugal and spain up against each other that will be in sochi and russia will also welcome the smallest country ever to qualify for the world cup to iceland they'll be playing argentina we caught up with some of the managers taking the teams into the tournament. i think we've got a group of players that. contrie over eleven million to produce the sort of footballers are something to be proud of the biggest job we have to be able to see the players working hard for each other but enjoying the responsibility of been seen as one of the best generations of belgian football has ever had.
we have caused belgium we know everything about them so. i think that game will capture everybody's imagination at home we feel an exciting thing a team that are only going to get better but we are a team that some experience of those big matches. we have to give. you know we are very proud to be qualified for the world we know it will be very difficult. but we are not going to do all good just to stay on the beach and to see you again go straight to the next round. we will have to make the best decisions we can during the tournament starts in the game against portugal there's no such thing as a good or bad opponent will have to have a victory against the teams we've been drawn again it's the match against portugal will be a great event and russia is expecting more than half
a million fans to come and support their countries next summer and close to three million people did apply for tickets when the went on general sale ahead of the draw supporters to get a chance to sample to the atmosphere some of the world cup their news early this year the confederations cup. glenn we would so much with mexico russia we thought maybe the like going to be bad you don't want that you don't think they are they were still like really friendly russian people who are so friendly friendly there still believe me was
there to be a full guy there and the little boy would come back from work. to be a little boy or make the would. he watch and wait here not international still to come this hour a german christmas market has been hit by a bomb scare we'll have the details on the person of the stories shortly. that's.
what politicians do something productive they put themselves on the law. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure more somehow want to press. the to the right to be for us to see what the forecast for you in the morning can be good for. i'm interested always in the waters in the. first six. welcome back to the weekly now a christmas market in the german city of potsdam was evacuated on friday after a suspicious device was found police say it was packed with cables batteries in
those but that it did not appear to be a viable explosive despite that though the brandenburg state interior minister said it was a successful attempt to spread fear as germany is on high alert after a number of recent terror attacks meanwhile in a europe wide threat of picture has been making the rounds online in the state militant brandishing a knife with the caption soon on your holidays written in english french and also german and it's a threat the u.k. is taking very seriously. reports. festive trees aren't the only thing being installed in the run up to christmas on the streets of britain you're likely to see decorations christmas markets and an extra dose of concrete new security measures being put in place at festive markets across the country and steel barriers like these around london's winter wonderland are intended to protect pedestrians from
ice still style truck attacks for anyone put off by all the steel and concrete this could be the answer or thirty's in the city of whole have come up with this novel way of dressing up their anti terror crash barriers london's metropolitan police have said that this year the public may see additional protective measures and security checks at festival vents around the capital and it's not just rings of steel and concrete permanent bollards like these have become common place they prevent cars and trucks from entering pedestrians those you feel a bit more cypher seeing the police knowing that they were in top of it ok so the extra security visibly makes you feel better from a different way you know we just expect small security everywhere now is just it because that's just fortunately the way of the world. after the deadly terror attacks this year many in the u.k. are feeling vulnerable last week
a security alert at london's oxford circus tube station triggered mass panic. nine people were injured when crowds ran to escape what they believed to be gunshots after a security lockdown the incident turned out to be a false alarm as well as an illustration of just how nervous many a feeling this festive season. pretty boy. an estimated twenty thousand people rallied in tel aviv on saturday calling on israel's leader to resign over corruption allegations. the so-called march of shame here was triggered by
a controversial draft law passed if passed it would prevent police from publishing findings on seeing criminal investigations into prime minister binyamin netanyahu as well as making recommendations to prosecutors many demonstrators and also prime minister netanyahu for his part though has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing plainly bill is a political weapon against illegal government the protesters do say they intend to keep up the pressure until he is forced from office. during the course of three years my life i think the time has come for a change of government the government is corrupt we're sick of the corruption. it's an emotion that we have a corrupt government that needs to be brought down as quickly as possible the prime minister and all of his crown is along with him. to defend democracy and the rule for to build a more equal and just society for ruan. the israeli prime minister is under investigation into separate corruption cases at the moment in one he is accused of
receiving bribes from wealthy businessmen and in the other is suspected of reaching a deal with a newspaper in order to secure favorable coverage but we got some opinion on this from a senior correspondent at israel's habits newspaper and also a political science professor at the open university of israel. i don't think that the prime minister initiated this piece of legislation which was put recently on the table only mr meow that. is more about the outcome of the police investigation. but certainly there is this in laws circles in is that the upper echelons are in fact that with the corruption legislation. i would say one. very critical of course issue to be debated but it is seen by by most of the protesters as just the tip of the iceberg not as the
issue. as the who are these important for the public to be aware of what the police having collected all the evidence and where you what they think and they think that there is no case that's fine too but it is incumbent on the police to let the prosecution and the public know what their findings are now obviously it's a transparent move by. his political cronies to field him from public pressure it is probably the lowest of. prime ministership because politically he has been secure in power until. criminal cases started to close around him. now r.t. america did have its press accreditation in the u.s. congress revoked on wednesday he's the last we received informing us of the
decision it does say that the decision to withdraw credentials was taken unanimously by the congressional press office and it came in response to the network's forced registration as a foreign agent in america at the time though the state department said it would not affect the channels freedom to operate in the states. when the united states tells someone to register under a foreign agent requirement we don't see impacts or a fax the ability of them to report news and information we just have to register it's as simple as that i ask the question how does this look like to the world in the nation's capital the bastion of free speech thousands of people from every conceivable form of press that there is they get a badge but r j o o o they're all foreign agent very
different this is just gone on to the point where it's becoming absolutely ridiculous the nation for security and cooperation in europe is here to this decision to strip ati of its press credentials in its way to the cd said that it demonstrates how foreign agents status does affect media freedom the president of the international federation of june this also told us the trend is deeply alone. it's a form of insidious censorship but because you can say the media is free to operate but do it when you withdraw the cretaceous effectively you cut. the media from sources of information which is which has a name censorship in our ethical rules we have very famous say facts are secrets comments are free so. the creation is supposed to give you
access to the effect and from the facts to journalist can comment on their own and they are free to do it this is simply freedom of expression and press freedom international for their issues of journalists were reacted several times in the past when r.t. and other media were over tackled we cannot accept that the media and join the rest are used in kind of we do need to call a war between the united suitor and noor shah journalist journalist they're not agents and that's how we can look say here and i think the company will be back with more at the top of the.
the definition of the israeli state is jewish and give all kind of take in my opinion flood of that up citizen self is that it is a jewish state for the jewish. citizens it said there was a connecticut state this is how it goes is it i likes usually to equal it says to they had a big companies when it is sad when they are talking about the economy but when democracy they want only to compare with that of the worst. fears of people been saying about rejected in the senate is full on awesome oh the only show i go out of my way to launch a lot of the really packed a punch oh yeah mr john oliver of harvey americans do the same we are apparently
better than nothing better to see people you've never heard of love attack tonight was the president of the world bank. because we're going to seriously send us an e-mail there is no center in the united states political discourse it's all center right ever since the clinton people came into power the center right has become the right and there is no peace party that exists in my country and i don't see any evidence of it except this third party that is so criticized the green party.
