RT News - January 15, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

Donald Trump's first press-conference as President-elect descends into a sparring session with the media. Trump's "fake news" accusations, came after CNN and Buzzfeed published articles about Russia supposedly having 'compromising' information on the President-elect, but admitting the claims rely on unverified sources. As Obama's presidency nears the finish line, we look at what was achieved during his 8 years in the White House and whether he stuck to his promises. A crew from RT Arabic gains access to a coastal village in war-torn Yemen, where locals are on the verge of starvation.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
