RT News - January 7, 2018 (12:00 MSK)

Iran is rocked by mass pro- and anti-government rallies, with at least 21 people killed - with external pressure and fake images of protests online further fuelling tensions. While the US and North Korean leaders engage in one-upmanship over the size and power of their nuclear buttons, new hope emerges for a possible de-escalation of the crisis - with Pyongyang agreeing to talks with the South for the first time in years. Thousands of migrants are still sleeping rough on the streets of Paris.  That's despite President Macron's promise to find a solution before the end of 2017.  We hear some of their stories. Suspected Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen have claimed more than 24 lives just this week.



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.
