RT News - January 6, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

Supporters of the Iranian government hold a fourth day of rallies to denounce the uprising that swept across the country, and left at least 21 people dead. The UN Security Council holds an emergency meeting over the situation in Iran, at America's request. However, the initiative is criticized by some members, saying it is Iran's internal issue. The United Nations allocates 50 million dollars in aid to Yemen, in an effort to alleviate the humanitarian disaster unfolding in the country. We discuss the crisis with a journalist and illustrator who's trying to raise awareness of the dire situation there. Members of the Jewish community in France tell us they fear for their safety in the country - and that many are planning to leave because of widespread anti-Semitism.

 

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.
