very warm welcome to you watching r.t. international with me nicky aaron. ceremonies have been held in paris to mourn a history teacher who was murdered by an islamic extremist the 47 year old was beheaded by a terrorists last week and as part of its crackdown the government has ordered the closure of a mosque accused of inciting the killing with the latest developments. several organizations are being shut down as a result of the attack on some real party almost a week ago in france and that includes the mosque behind me this is the grand mosque of punks on the reason the order says on the front of the mosque that it is being closed on wednesday is because that is for the sole purpose of preventing acts of terrorism and that's because this mosque which turns around 1500 people who
11:02 am
regularly come and worship posted a video inciting hatred against teaches samuel party in the days before he was killed now the person the author of video is under arrest at the moment and is also said to be exchanged messages with the killer now the rector of this mosque has expressed extreme regret for sharing that video on the facebook page of the mosque this is a statement that's only last we strongly condemn the savitri islam and its teachings categorically condemn such acts the grand mosque needs its most sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of samuel petit and because violence has no place in a religion which calls for a fraternity and respect for difference as well the beheading of the 47 year old teacher has cool really struck a new hearing for this all unfolded off the he gave a civics education lesson that during that lesson he was talking about freedom of
11:03 am
speech and he showed controversial images of the muslim a prophet mohammed which really upset everyone and that is a reason that the 18 year old who murdered him said he did so this hits at the heart of this relationship that france has with the freedom of expression the liberty of speech and it is a lesson that teaches up and down the country given year in year out and they feel that if they continue to do so they could be repercussions that this all comes at a time when the regions in front of decided. publish a book which contains all of the most controversial religious and political cartoons that will be distributed to schools we also understand that some hotels and public buildings in the south of france and elsewhere points will be showing images displaying them on their buildings today in a sign of solidarity with samuel patty and we know that some need to also done
11:04 am
the same many people in front saying they will defend to the end their right for their freedom of speech. we thought it was important to be there especially as i'm studying to be a teacher so i'm still touched directly but almost frankly i think it's horrible what happened hampering our freedom of expression the freedom to learn know. the values of france of the republic which has been targeted. patsy whether it is this professor or another no matter which french college or high school who started this freedom and look at caricature not necessarily of mohammad but we look at caricatures to show freedom of expression there are all questions over whether this could incite even more hatred do know that france has had a longstanding problem with grown islamic radicalism and in the last few weeks

president machen set out to stall and was seen is being pretty much a lot more speech saying how he was going to fight against this and he talked about a draw for the bill that stayed to be presented in december that will look down closing homeschooling love clues the scrutiny of many organizations and he said that this was to tackle foreign interference here in france you know the trough bill which we released in december we've had little trinkets of what's coming out given that we've seen mosques like this being shut down in the wake of mood of some real party president. court has said he will continue this point. that our citizens of the islamic faith must be protected against the evil of radical islam i say it here because the will of the islamists of its ideologues is precisely to turn a part of our citizens against the republic using their religion and we cannot let that happen but many might say detractors that this is perhaps too little too late
11:06 am
particularly given that it's emerged in the last few days that some of the use of been arrested since the. party known for their right to call the. toys to radical islam so many people saying is enough being done to stop the rot. new covert 19 restrictions in the u.k. have seen politicians low corns the mare of greater manchester has lashed out at westminster saying they look down in his region will push people into poverty that's off the talks on a financial aid package collapsed on tuesday. we made a generous and extensive offer to support his business didn't accept this unfortunately given the public health situation i must marry proceed with moving greater manchester as i say to the very high level no point today where we offered

in order to protect the poorest people in our communities through the punishing reality of the winter to come i now look to parliament to be a make a judgement on a financial framework for 3 hours boortz really striking about this latest disagreement is the politicize ation of it as seen by. with labor. and i'm holding out saying that the city with its for the number of cases since its peak in september shouldn't be going into 2 or 3 locked are not at least without some kind of sufficient financial package from the central government now initially the mayor had said that his team had to close around $1000000.00 pounds as part of the package the government's figure was around $60000000.00 but they just couldn't seem to come to an agreement eventually the government put forward only 22000000 pounds of speaking to some of the locals on the street the majority of them backing the
11:08 am
position of the mayor and really proud of andy burnham the mayor of manchester for really they were the way the b.b.c. put it was bending them into government over a barrel and really sticking hard on this one and defending those people because that the economic package they announced just it work keep people alive i do think it's very good that he's holding out for financial measures because we do need that and it hasn't been done enough. but also there is a point where you cannot hold human lives as a leverage anymore do you think that they should place it to teach you about giving people the correct by not just more people are going to be able to survive a bit so. stupid you. the government still insisting this part of the country should be going into 2 or 3 lockdown what that means for those especially the lowest paid in the cities well it's going to be a long dark winter ahead. starting on friday greater manchester will be put in the u.k.'s top risk bracket for covert classed as tier 3 that means

'd there's a solution to the rising rates especially. in this time if rates start going to change then obviously the government is right and we are on the big issue to protect lives and it's also to make sure our economy different it's an old fart i think that if you or and you're in no income job you're more likely to actually. and your moral 'd outrage are all the problems so 'd even worse we have a caucus on a truck gauge and all of the law. by the way it. will affect the poorest members of. elsewhere in europe

he about terrorism if that was ever the subject of the us consulate but it is about money i mean imagine what kind of precedent this is going to send not just within that region but world right but i hate me to think it was never about money in the 1st place trump is desperate to go back to his supporters and to claim another foreign policy victory especially because in 2 days there would be another debate that will focus largely on foreign policy so he needs to go and talk about his achievements and so in addition to. be the leaders of his achievements as far as he's some sun this is really more about us elections that are about money percent. this is not a international still to come do go face is an anti monopoly lawsuit from the u.s. government we have the details on that coming up after this break.

11:16 am
there are some things. we dared to ask. you welcome back in a historic move the u.s. government has slapped charges on tech giant google is accused of violating laws meant to stop monopolies on online searches and other sizing but also it's one of the most significant legal challenges to a tech company in decades. showing. showing.
11:17 am
any range. on the issue of monopoly is google holds 88 percent of the u.s. search market with 94 percent of all lowball searches occurring on it services washington also alleges that the tech company suppresses innovation by looking up distribution through contracts with apple political analyst day perkins says this looks a lot like history repeating itself. i want to compare it to historically true the advent of the widespread use of the telephone in america about 100 years ago when the company called american telephone and telegraph owned everything including the manufacturer knew the equipment so government let that ride for about 50 years in the prices got too high and the service got too bad and so they filed a lawsuit against a t.n.t. an antitrust suit and it resulted in a t.n.t.
11:18 am
breaking up into regional companies and telephone service being opened up to competitors and all of that made life much much better for business and for american citizens now we have google which is considerably more complicated than a telephone number one because we're not quite sure what they're doing when you use the company's services for free and you can't figure out what they do to make money and what their product is that means the product is you and they're selling you and your data and we just don't know how certainly it should not be done behind closed doors under cover of darkness by only one company for its parts. and will help consumers by pushing them to end its opinion and feria rivals. people use google because they choose to not because they're forced to or because they can't find alternatives this lawsuit would do nothing to help consumers to the contrary it would artificially probably over quality search alternatives raise
11:19 am
phone prices and make it harder for people to get the search services they want to use what google has done is build themselves centrally a couple of different forms of one are believed within the marketplace one of them specifically though is with the android operating system which they say not only has google you know dominance in terms of being the largest operating system in the world but defaults that system to create google as the search they also also dominate the advertising market for online advertising as you know about 80 to 90 percent of all online advertising goes through directly through google and so the idea is that google has used an optimized its search engine its enjoyed operating system to be able to create market dominance and it's not necessarily because the public loves google so much as it is the fact that google has found a way to make themselves really the primary search engine online when it comes to a mobile device. a syrian man has been arrested in germany on suspicion of stabbing 2 tourists earlier this month one was killed and the other severely injured in that
