6:01 pm
drugs treatment not some of the more specific questions that they've raised in the last couple of days prior to the official conference when they've been holding their own talks things like the accuracy of the hate hiv test a person is defined as having a if they develop one of the twenty nine a finding diseases those are things such as pneumonia and this and as well as that test positive for hiv hiv so a positive or negative hiv test can mean the difference between so on being diagnosed with pneumonia or being diagnosed with aids if they're calling into question the reliability of this very important another thing they've been talking about is about the safety and effectiveness of the aids drug treatment now for more on this we can hear from journalist jane shenton from the community resource foundation the status about conventional treatment has actually caused the death of a whole generation of young gay men in america when they were on the high doses of
6:02 pm
aids their t. that is well documented not one single young man or woman and there were a few women who took the high doses of aids their d has survived many many others have survived who haven't taken the antiviral and many have survived who have taken antivirals at times to damp down what essentially is an immune suppression for many many different reasons so it's extremely important to be challenging this hypothesis which of course is tied up with hundreds and billions of thousands of dollars of international money which have led to absolutely no result the people that are here at this conference today and over the next week they're extremely reluctant to even enter into a discussion about these alternative views. we've been trying to talk to some of the people that are here but they're really focused on the agenda of this conference and they're saying that this conference is about drawing together the

6:04 pm
the so-called developing cost in countries in africa. south america and so on so it is it doesn't fit in a norm of virus diseases because viruses. can make very few things they are not so intelligent to do so many things it doesn't fit in a viral cause ok let's see this is the best what's your reaction to that yeah. well a couple of points the first point to. has never been isolated well that's simply not true the virus has been isolated it's been molecularly quote. d.n.a. cloning technologies it's been sequenced literally thousands of times from different individuals infected with the virus so simply isn't ever an isolated secondly. nor the virus causes of you know deficiency it's also not
6:05 pm
true we know very well how each of you works now let's just hear from dr spock oblique if we can i would say that it's true that hiv is cloned thousands of times but cloning means to take something from a clone if it is a clone you have to have the original and original is never never shown in any paper. there was actually ourselves accountable for the pain of the vietnam war still so today victims of the deadly chemical weapons agent orange are calling on washington to the let me of the toxic legacy of the poison spread over huge areas by american forces in vietnam. and the funny side of an indian comedy featuring the world's most wanted terrorist is not being seen in pakistan. eleven people have been killed and at least nine injured after a bus plunged off a cliff in a mountainous region of south set yet the bus was on its way to russia's southern

stand me government records show nearly ninety five percent of all u.s. agent orange related aid is committed to efforts to contain and remove dioxin contamination we asked the justice for all the victims those fighting for justice in the case of vietnamese agent orange victims want the physical and psychological damages to be acknowledged with. the dark legacy left behind by the u.s. in vietnam is one with millions of human face. their struggle three decades in the making will not end with money from the u.s. government but it could ease the pain the u.s. has been ignoring scented done for months sent to manufactured agent orange in these jungles. washington d.c. . censors have also been at work in pakistan this week and new bollywood comedy featuring an osama bin laden lookalike has been banned so wishes were worse that a comic depiction of the world's most wanted man could trigger terrorist attacks
6:19 pm
kyra saying when to ask those behind the indian comedy if the world is really ready for post nine eleven. this could well be the biggest scoop of my career interviewing the world's most wanted terrorist however this man does not have a twenty five million dollar reward on his head in fact he is not bin laden but an actor in a bollywood for their new bin ladin or without you lot in but just in case you think this is a movie glorifying a terrorist it is a general sort of. biography it's a film which is on the board. of virgin london happens to be very very important character and this is a fair number of feet below. that of you using it's not intended to vote in any way anybody from any part of the world is going to enjoy this from i can guarantee you that it's a murder comedy set in pakistan where the young journalist is fixated with going to america and he decided to stick it to get there is an interview with osama bin

6:21 pm
have banned the movie saying it mocks security agencies. and screening it in public could trigger violence the film's distributers in pakistan the message of peace and not appealing the ban but i thought it was a nice film there's a lot of good humor from the name it sounds like a serious films but actually it turned out quite different so it's full of great jokes in tripoli that's. definitely quite a good film it will definitely like it mind my students to come and watch it and they will like it there's nothing here that will incite people to. the selling point of this film is osama bin ladin but it's very tongue in cheek. to act the part in the. i challenge you america there will be retribution holding just an evil actions you have committed in the countries like iraq and afghanistan so these you will have to pay a heavy price when i first heard about this film i thought it was going to be
6:22 pm
a lot of vacation but actually it's quite irrelevant in the way pakistanis and muslims are looked at with suspicion in the west today and how the media could be fooled into believing something that doesn't exist i think this film could do well in south asia but western audiences would probably need a good sense of humor to appreciate the message got and seeing r.t. . and some other stories from around the world at least forty eight people have been killed and another fifty injured into a suicide bomb attack southwest of baghdad members of the sunni militia working with government forces against al qaida were targeted as they collect is their pay with others. separate base their worst at a time in a day against security forces involved in the last three months u.s. forces have already begun a phased withdrawal that to the iraqi military but there has been a sustained violence since inconclusive parliamentary elections in which. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has appealed to pakistani leaders for further
