hello and welcome to our t twenty four hour news live from moscow our top story dissenting views in the medical community of what causes aids have come into sharp focus in vienna in advance of a conference on the disease to their tended by twenty thousand delegates and the city over two thousand doctors who have been attending a separate gathering are challenging those tablets to orthodoxy that the h.r.t. virus is the only cause of aids some of them say their views are ignored by a mainstream backed by the big pharmaceutical companies. has more from the capital for their questioning the validity of the common assumptions that are often associated with hiv and aids and they also question the traditional means of treatment. with the drugs treatment not some of the more specific questions that they've raised in the last couple of days prior to the official conference and they've been holding their own talks things like the accuracy of the hate hiv test
10:02 pm
a person's defined as having a if they develop one of the twenty nine a finding diseases those are things such as pneumonia and. and as well as that test positive for hiv so a positive or negative hiv test can mean that if it's between saw and being diagnosed with pneumonia or being diagnosed with aids so they're calling into question the reliability of this very important test 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 journalists. from the community resource foundation of the spoke to us about subjects 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 aids there that is well documented not one single young man or woman then there were a few women who took the high doses of aids there. he has survived many many others
10:03 pm
have survived who haven't taken the antivirals 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. the next week they're extremely reluctant to even enter into a discussion about these alternative theories and 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 the thirty conference is about growing together with the best of the medical minds in the global community and really focusing on ways in which provide universal access to hiv prevention which is what they're all here for as we said they're not even really willing to enter into
10:04 pm
a discussion. and alan my colleague alice had spoke to. ghana allan the last time from the global aids vaccine enterprise and gene anastacia a doctor actually questions that a theory. and nobody could give me the paper where he is isolated in the way the scientists. are asking for it since the seventy years since the seventy's the other thing is that there doesn't exist any paper. shows if a chevy is existing how it is doing a. situation to use their data is a fairly different thing is in western countries so-called western countries and the so-called developing cost in countries in africa. south america and so on so it is it doesn't fit in the norm of virus diseases because viruses.
10:05 pm
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 say mr burstein 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 the luck of the cloned using d.n.a. cloning technologies it's been sequenced literally thousands of times from different individuals infected with the virus. simply isn't true so it's never been a sort of secondly. normal virus causes of you know the first and see is also not true we know very well how it works now let's just hear from dr zachary 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
10:06 pm
a clone you have to have the original and original is never never shown in any paper. you know we'll see and still to come in the program the pain of the vietnam still fell today victims of the deadly chemical weapon agent orange are calling on washington to full advantage 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. teenage would bases side bomb a girls were among eight people arrested and a counter terror operation in the southern republic of dagestan guns grenades and lost whales were among the items found by russian security services was girls as young as fifteen saying they were trained by their dead terrorist husbands catarina as are now reports. so young but deemed old enough one of the alleged

10:08 pm
a destructive course because they are more vulnerable. to terrorists disgraced these women raped them deprived them of a better future in the muslim society of the caucasus there's. psychologically shattered and i left with no other choice but to become cannon fodder one of the men detained in the same raid is accused of something even more tangible than planning future attacks bring to moscow the two female suicide bombers who in march two thousand and ten set off explosions in the metro the two blasts within twenty minutes of each other took place during morning rush hour forty people died and nearly two hundred more were injured russia's anti-terrorist committee is still searching for others involved in the deadly attacks but these latest arrests officials say they are one step closer to finding not only the executers but the mastermind behind the entire operation people detained in the russian republic the continue to maintain their innocence but the terrorist believes it has more than

enough evidence to make its case catherine is our of our team last hour. fractured relationship between the u.s. and iran to hit another spy this week as the country's traded allegations of a new class scientist ameri the iranian expert who returned home on thursday says he was kidnapped by the cia held for fourteen months and tortured to reveal information about the country's nuclear program and he also claims he was asked to confess to being an intelligence agent so the you ask that small plane for three americans being held in iran on a spanish charges washington denies this american media meanwhile has reported that our mary was actually a u.s. spy for yaz working undercover as a test on university christian friends our mix into the case the looming question in this case how did the iranian scientists sure all miry get to the united states one person has already answered that question sure amiri himself but his answers

10:18 pm
government has acknowledged agent orange is directly connected to the health ailments and defects that continue to plague the lives of vietnam war veterans for generations to come but the u.s. has words used to make the same length for the millions of vietnamese war victims whose lives have been devastated as a result of agent orange they say that has nothing to do with agent orange i think that the u.s. government has the reason to deny it. which is why delegations are here in washington following a report issued by lawmakers scientists and doctors calling on the u.s. government to own up to its agent orange legacy in vietnam today also people then 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
10:19 pm
damages to be acknowledged with. the dark legacy left behind by the u.s. in vietnam is one with millions of human faces their struggle three decades in the making will not end with money from the u.s. governments but it could ease the pain the u.s. has been ignoring scented dumped a month sent to manufactured agent orange in these jungles. our team washington d.c. . sensors have also been at work in pakistan this week and new bollywood comedy featuring an osama bin laden lookalike has been bombed also issues where war that's a comic depiction of the world's most wanted man could trigger a terrorist attacks his current saying when tossed those behind the indian comedy the wall is really ready for post nine eleven humor. 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's not osama bin laden
10:20 pm
but an actor in a bollywood 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 post nine eleven world of which bin laden happens to be a very very important character and this is a fair number of feet bin laden and that's how you're using it's not insensitive or offensive in any way and anybody from any part of the world is going to enjoy this from i can guarantee you that it's american 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 laden so he goes about creating a fake or. using a look alike. they had to keep the twenty five year old actor under wraps to prevent making the film. gone to shopping mall in noida to
10:21 pm
promote this film and there was a commotion there get a crowd of more than a hundred people gathered so we were full in this time pete. nothing like. they wanted to shake my hand and take my autograph so i signed up with someone. who plays the journalist is a pakistani singer and this is debut film how does it feel acting in an indian film set in pakistan and in pakistan bollywood films are greatly appreciated they are seen. people enjoy them and so i mean to see a pakistani. something very refreshing and new for that. movie saying it mocks security agencies. and spinning it in public could trigger violence action films distributors and box stuff and call it a message of peace and not appealing the band much of a humor i thought it was
10:22 pm
a nice little would be good idea as a lot of good humor and being allowed to name it sounds like a serious film is going to actually be good for it turned out quite different certainly great job in tripoli that he achieved we had a lot differently to getting ill it was definitely a like it i like to do is to come and watch it and they will like it but there's nothing here that will incite at some minds as to believe that the selling point of this film is osama bin ladin but it's very tongue in cheek so i asked to act the part in the. i challenge you america there will be retribution holding just evil actions you have committed in other countries like iraq and afghanistan for these you will have to pay a heavy price. when i first heard about this film i thought it was going to be a beautification looked at it but actually it's quite irrelevant in the way pakistanis are 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 saying r.t.
