intelligence chief is raising the alarm over children of islamic state fighters that have been brought to germany he saves the youngsters are living time bombs that can be used in terror plots inside the country are all over reports well. said the children all german parents who went off to join isis in iraq syria pose a potential security threat when or if they return back here to germany in fact he went as far as to refer to them in some cases as ticking time bombs they were confronted early with islamic state ideology learned to fight and were in some cases forced to participate in the abuse of prisoners or even the killing of prisoners we have to consider that these children could be living time bombs there is a danger that these children come back brainwashed with a mission to carry out attacks or mustn't also went on to say that there was a whole network of online i use this headhunters looking to recruit and radicalize
potentially vulnerable children islamic state uses headhunters who scour the internet for children that can be approached and tries to radicalize these children were recruited children for terrorist attacks it's no wonder that germany is concerned the country has seen a number of mine is involved in terrorist attacks over the last couple of years most notably there was a case back in twenty sixteen when a twelve year old boy tried to blow up a christmas market in the west of the country and the german government figures showed that around one thousand people left the country to go and joy in isis now around one third of those have returned back to germany but the government also points out they have no way of knowing how many children are being born to those those germans that went off to join isis and how many potentially could come back to the country and pose a threat but that prompted mohsin to say that he thought that the security. the
services should be given the rights to launch surveillance operations against minors in germany that's anybody under the age of fourteen years old that though of course comes with its own issues a particularly sensitive topic talking about launching wiretaps and other types of surveillance operation against children that young. to the u.s. now where murder rates in the city of baltimore skyrocketed in twenty seventeen with fifty six killings per one hundred thousand people a new record for a city that already has a reputation for being dangerous crime ridden. few cities in body american urban decay more depressingly than the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. murder. will. yes baltimore there is
a robust and strategy. and strategy. working. well it all comes as baltimore has been rocked by the ongoing trials and one of america's biggest police corruption scandals they go trace task force on elite group of plainclothes officers were supposed to be reducing violence on crime however it seems they have actually been to it six out of eight members of the
group pleaded guilty to charges of organized crime including extortion and drug dealing sim your account is across the story. the baltimore police department is now involved in one of the biggest scandals and u.s. law enforcement history for months now the court system has been trying to investigate corruption within the city's police force eight officers are on trial over drug trafficking racketeering robbery and planting fake evidence like drugs and. we would create false reports to cover up the robberies we were involved in. it was like aware of life where got away with a lot of things if proven guilty the officers that may face twenty to one hundred years in prison and six of them have already pleaded guilty and are now acting as witnesses in hopes of softening the moving verdict and their lawyers claim the officer still feel to over what they've done mr jenkins is extremely remorseful he's been remorseful for
a long time even before these charges were brought and he's relieved that today finally he was publicly able to accept responsibility for their clients sorry for what they did or should. be so easy regretful of what happened i really don't have any comment meanwhile officers cases continue to be dismissed with hundreds under review and most of them involve incidents of officer switching off their body cameras to plant drugs or guns and then reenact seizing the evidence they had already planted while the no two out is that the police corruption trial is still ongoing in baltimore we will be following it to its conclusion here on r.t. . now a libyan man who lost his whole family in a nato air raid is planning to take his fight for justice to the european court of human rights he says the alliance dropped two bombs on his heist during its military intervention in the country and twenty eleven. now we demand that we need
to explain why our house and houses were showing all the military targets i don't understand why nato targeted our house sadly my dear wife died as well as my cousins my innocent children and our neighbors our friends were there with those it was a monstrous crime and nato has the latest equipment and technology which allows them to accurately determine the targets of the nato cross struck specifically at night when people are in their homes they intentionally hit civilian targets those hospitals schools gas stations they destroyed all the infrastructure while they were killing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure apparently knowing there were no weapons though. you can see here on the market where the nato attack actually took place. mentioned thirteen people were killed in the bombardment including three children he says his house may have been targeted because his
father was a general who served under libya's former leader moammar gadhafi but khaled say's it was just a family home and not a legitimate target he began his battle for justice back in twenty twelve but has faced an uphill struggle to actually get his case heard in court nato which enjoys a degree of legal immunity in such cases argues that it had no intelligence suggesting civilians were in the house at the time of the strike where or how they'd say it his lawyers have find a way of challenging the protections afforded to the alliance and he hopes his case will send a precedent for others who also lost their family. when we gathered our families in different parts of libya we found a man who's worked for daughter and son as well as his mother died during the show and there were other families in other cities a lot of families we compiled a report from identified victims after having documented in photograph the material
was so that this case could become a historical precedent. campaigning for the my oral elections in the japanese city of nine go has again highlighted the controversial nature of america's military presence on our island japan central government authorities in okinawa where u.s. troops are currently stationed have been doing battle over the possible relocation of their base to the northern city of novel a recent poll shows sixty three percent of voters oppose the relocation while only twenty percent support the move the incumbent mayor of this city who opposes america is the ploy meant of troops to the island sees a vote for him would be a vote for defending japan's ptolemy. joey g.'s elections are extremely important as they will have a great impact on the future of not go in okinawa our country's current administration is attacking us with attempts to sway the power these elections are meant to defend japanese democracy and our tanami we're asking people from all over
the country for their understanding okinawa is in a difficult situation right now but if many people support us we will continue what we're doing a back in one thousand nine hundred six a review by japan and the us the sign of the american base should be relocated to the remote area of conoco their decision was made in order to reduce the military impact on the populated communities of southern okinawa but there are since been numerous crimes committed in relation to the us military presence there.
well activists in okinawa believe the japanese government has been turning a blind eye to the tense situation playing out in the region now. misstating i mean it is a really strong body. that it could have nation of the day but i know that candidate is a fucked up book by japanese center government so he ugliness. is location of the new meet a face in the most the will king of people who are against the new. construction is going on in japanese government hungry ignoring our voice against democracy and against the decision if they. accept
a base they can get the money many citizens who know the troops the facts are really. worried japan's government sent sent. ministers money and the mccall. the fake news but we really let loose we will in. cryptocurrency brick corner seeing another tumble as regulators an indian once a widespread crackdown sending prices into freefall for today alone it's down thirteen percent overall it's already down by more than half from the all time high reached in mid december facebook has also moved on crypto saying it will block all promoting bitcoin or other cryptocurrency products and services a gala francis santiago looks into the pan. big news
in the world of crypto facebook is banning all cryptocurrency ads explanation of the social networks not sure all of the companies behind them are operating in quote good faith so it's stepping in to save the day. we want people to continue to discover and learn about new products and services through facebook ads without fear of scams or deception there you go with the crypto boom comes the crypto rag down we've already seen some governments across the world seeking to ryan in the uncharted waters of the crypto market too from china to the u.k. pseudo financial innovations that have no relationship with the real economy should not be supported i would caution the people we know relatively little about what sun's forms the price of cotton it's not commodities well because the eventual supply is fixed if you want to invest
a bit and be prepared to lose all your money sure there are traps in the greater world take this nicely wrap website of the lithuanian based startup protium the company wanted to track around six point five million worth of the theory in crypto currency to revolutionize agriculture sounds promising. sure enough the company disappeared without a trace soon after finishing its hard cap wiping its website clean and leaving just one vulgar war behind but it could have been much more like a whole crypto bank for example the first ever by the way the arise bank which had its assets frozen by the u.s. securities and exchange commission with more than six hundred million dollars in several crypto currencies including bitcoin unlike coins all because its owner have previously been associated with crypto fraud and its new bank fabricated agreements with banks that did not exist.
but then really how many i theo's out there are scams and that facebook really need to go that far to limit all crypto a whole crypto currency movement is a big thing and it's kind of like a gold rush so there are going to be some scam artists who get in on the action and unfortunately there are a few but facebook is a billion dollar a month company they can put one person on this to sort them out it's not that hard there's not that many of them it should not be their their job to police such things in my opinion they have to deal with us in world politics and there may be pressures on them to do these things than you can watch the full digest on our you

memorial how important is it to the jewish community to survivors and indeed to the descendants of survivors. the concept is very important and the location is great the location is a statement right next to the houses of parliament what it means is that the british nation cares about what happened during the second world war and he semitism is not only a jewish problem and he semitism is a threat to our entire society so the fact that the british nation are investing in this initiative is of enormous significance and most of all to holocaust survivors because they are really deeply worried what's going to happen beyond their own lifetime we need to let them know that we're going to carry their torch for them we will guarantee that we will remember the holocaust and more importantly we remember the lessons of the holocaust and speaking of lessons important is the educational aspect of the memorial unlearning sent i think that's the essence of the entire
initiative because we are remembering the past for the sake of the present and the future. isn't the tragic alec's that so many years after the second world war have been genocides in tanzania in cambodia in darfur in rwanda the world hasn't yet learnt those lessons so we do need to educate and we will take advantage of virtual images of online learning this will be a hub it will be an educational center and it will act in tandem with imperial war museum and other outstanding centers through which we remember and memorialize the holocaust chief rabbi thank you very much thank you alex. and i'm three years time the things go according to plan they'll take shape near that spot the holocaust memorial for the u.k.
which will take its place among the great memorials to the holocaust around the world but this will be more than just a memorial will also be a alarming and research center so that the next generation can learn the lessons of the appalling events of more than seventy years ago because one of the key aspects of the work of the holocaust a motive to mention of which i'm a board member has been the gathering of testimony from survivors of the holocaust our generation will be the last you can speak first time to these remarkable people one such man living quietly enough longer than is freddy knoller i spoke to him earlier this week. thank you for allowing this interview you had a fascinating life documented in your book living with the enemy you started off very happily in vienna with your family are you a magician the boat that plays a cello in fact already parents made sure that all three brothers we had to
learn an instrument that were his father the piano my middle brother violin and naturally i had to play the cello because they wanted to have a three or and you became quite well known young three or of their brother knoller's. played a charity functions it would be hard to happy friday night or you know we play it over with just the three of the brothers really paraded home after a show about this and it was very nice it was a very nice atmosphere parables would realize that the storm clothes were galloping and anti jewish legislation was starting to be passed on not just in germany but in austria too so you went to belgium before the war started i was the last one to relieve after my one brother went to america the other one to england and i. my parents had some friends in belgium in brussels. and therefore the friends can
i send the young his poise friend in all over to you were naturally the city about our means and him over and we'll take care of him but then of course the germans invaded belgium germans invaded belgium so freely when you were in austria the invaded austria with you in belgium little waited belgium to gee i'm going to get the impression they were asked of you in particular vendor germans invaded belgium i run away to france because i really ready naughty book sick chile about paris they moved who she is a half naked. dances on the stage and general noti book standing all about the joy of young people of men and women in paris and part of. you joined the resistance not as yet i was working on plus to guys
like chile momart of where i contacted german soldiers on plus the god because there are so many germans or just there and we took them to brussels and to cover a race and they paid us a commission for bringing the german soldiers into these northeast places and that's how we made the i made a very good living actually doing this year naturally i'd force papers a four hundred francs i bought my sims myself some false people and changed my name to all bad mates now born in i just love and so that worked for a while little identify who you really were dead tried to then you will discover i met a girl i fell in love is just clean was her name and. i told her that i was in the resistance. and but one day when the
had fights between each other she went to the germans and told him that fred in order that all their mates there is not from what i just saw again but he's working for the resistance point zero that the the cinemas were showing on to some attic films on the atmosphere and powerless were the and then the vishay government started to collaborate with the germans and the anti jewish policies x. and of course there you had your or your fight with the your girlfriend you want exposed who asked who you really where you arrived in one hundred forty five in clearly a grievance camp and pulled. and then taken. darla concentration camp near north host of the hot house laura and then of course the soviet troops liberated house for which and you were taken to better and better as
we have very very liberated by the british army but in many ways said by survivors news who experienced these dreadful conditions that the belsen was the worst camp of all because no food was given to us and people just died like flies into to graunt of their beds was full of dead people who died of hunger that i remember digging into the ground just to find some roots to eat just anything to keep alive and it was just it. unbelievable and something that every never forget it and when you were in belsen how much information that you have about the hopes that the allied forces in this case the british forces would approaching the camp for liberation that you gennaro the joy of knowledge that they were coming or the just not know anything nobody knew anything concerning the one the somebody came to me and said look there see seem to
be other troops at the entrance of vera of the camp and i went there and saw was a british army were liberated they have been belsen and right away. and it was such a joy for us and we were fierce and they were given some food anything to eat because this or did that people and they got the german guards there to get them to take the dead bodies and dig graves and they had to bury the dead bodies in the ground what is the motivation that drives you to tell the story about the apollo in conditions and belsen about the the privation of the people dying like flies you know what drives you to see what happened i do not want the world ever to forget what has happened in the second world war especially now we know six
million. innocent jewish people murdered because they were jews and innocent people were murdered by the nazis and i don't want the world ever to forget what has happened and this is the reason why is still talk today into two children so that this will never ever to be forgotten if the human spirit determines to survive. and look forward you think that's the key they think the why are you sitting here today absolutely and never give up. this is my optimism a.b.c. will be all right i will get overheated and this is a chile i'm sure this is why i am keeping it alive and this is right i'm very happy may and now it's ninety six very happy with my wife and very happy with my family
