RT News - July 30, 2019 (12:00 MSK)

The world marks a Day against Human Trafficking with the UN warning that every country is still affected by modern-day slavery.  The deaths of a British soldier and a US commando, once used to justify a western military presence in Syria, are now deemed the result of friendly fire as a UK inquiry rejects the Pentagon's version of events. The lawyer of jailed Russian, Maria Butina, says he's got 'evidence of possible FBI misconduct' in her case. She's serving in an 18-month sentence in the US for 'not registering as a foreign agent'. And in a lawsuit with Biblical proportions: atheist parents launch legal action against their children's school, claiming they've been' indoctrinated by Christian prayers and Bible stories'.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.

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,
