7:01 pm
g.d.p. and as the russian leader himself said today it is the strongest emerging economy in the world today russia of course wants a bigger role and it's a development and it's in its ambitions because it has a lot of potential but the russian leader he was very pleased about his visit from everything starting with the weather which he said was a reflection on how good the relationship between moscow and one noise weather here has been perfect blue skies very warm not too hot not too cold he also spoke about his experience of vietnamese food saying that for some russians it might be a little too spicy but he actually prefers his food that way so it was a very pleasurable experience for him not only did he manage to take an experience he also matters to the ground so during a later part of his program he met one vietnamese lady who said that as somewhat of a role model for her and that her biggest wish would be to shake his head the russian president said that is possibly one of the easiest wishes to grant and
7:02 pm
proceeded to do exactly that shaking lady's head she certainly seemed pretty happy so good impressions for everyone so far. reporting there from annoy. the first ever joint us russian anti drugs operation in war torn afghanistan has been hailed a success special forces knocked out for drug labs on the afghan border with pakistan and confiscated a ton of heroin where the hundreds of millions of dollars afghan president hamid karzai condemned the operation claiming it violated the country's sovereignty but russian officials say cause eyes statement is confusing as the raid was led by the afghan interior ministry the operation marks russia's return to afghanistan twenty years after soviet troops withdrew from a decade long war against the mujahideen insurgent parties you cut in a show of support song moscow's ghost excuse me for how some moscow's boost to the u.s.

afghanistan again this time with its former anime. these are the pictures he saw on the news reports food truck producing lapse on the border between afghanistan and pakistan were destroyed in a special rate and a ton of heroin worth over two hundred million dollars. after we gave information to our u.s. and afghan partners the three sides found the operation for three months we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six supporting ones the whole operation lasted less than full round was. but many experts say washington needed a push before it started to act it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have a hundred thousand troops we've spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling
7:05 pm
all over every inch of that country but it took you know two in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states with more of the drug passing through its food has than any other country russia is convinced that the scan which must be confronted at its source however those who know first hand what fighting in afghanistan is like learning against being drawn into a full scale war because. of course there should be special operations carried out against drug cartels but again special units should be in charge of this nineteen year old boys should not be recruited for the job every single of peroration should be planned in detail starting from the intelligence sections or the operation itself and the wrapping up of the operation it's easy to get trapped in this war and hard to get out of it. as long as islamist militancy and drunks emanating from

rich and the poor about the. steps in a few minutes. russia and georgia could be in tangled in a spy scandal with reports tbilisi detained twenty people on friday for espionage an anonymous source quoted by reuters said those detained are all georgian and are suspected of being part of a spy network gathering information from moscow the georgian interior ministry has so far refused to comment and says it won't do so until next week russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov said moscow is not aware of any details as there are no diplomatic relations between the two countries experts say tbilisi's of asian shows how authoritarian the country is. when someone is arrested they're entitled to due process that means they can call a lawyer that family members can be contacted therefore arrests are announced and it never happens i can't tell you how bizarre ideas to hear
7:08 pm
a police spokesman say. i can neither confirm nor deny that arrests have taken place secret arrests are the hallmark of a police state there is a new law before the georgian parliament which is called the freedom charter and it's something akin to the patriot act in the united states it will drastically increase the powers of the security service past its first reading in the in the georgian part parliament recently and it is possible that someone is trying to whip up. a social mood to support that. one of the country's opposition leaders and says tbilisi uses the slightest link to russia as an excuse to prosecute this kind of charges russian links russian ties russian experience is always used in georgia's political ground i don't know anything about these people but i know that

it's a quite enough to be some holding three zero. knowing your spinach may be there but you sure you would feel business in russia or you feel the same way in russia if you were with georgia it's quite enough for georgia law enforcement of shows to make criminal you scared. iraqi lawmakers are demanding very government investigate allegations of war crimes the police comes a week after the online whistleblower wiki leaks released four hundred thousand secret u.s. documents on the war in iraq the files that detail american forces handing prisoners over to iraqi interrogators despite overwhelming evidence of torture the data also shed light on fifteen thousand killings over the past six years which had been previously unaccounted for rucks prime minister nouri maliki says the revelations are aimed at undermining the country's political stability but that's an overreaction and an unlikely motivation for the week according to one leading expert on the country. i think that would be very doubtful to imagine the wiki
7:10 pm
leaks and the soldiers responsible for giving these documents to them have the undermining of the iraqi government in mind when they chose this date and let's bear in mind that there hasn't been an iraqi government for seven months so it's not as likely as if there's many dates to choose from when it comes to releasing this in a sense this is u.s. military documents really unlike any previous media story or report from iraq this is words from their own mouth which makes it very difficult for them to deny it and they're not really doing that if you actually listen to what the pentagon and state department spokesman is saying what they talk about is the critical nature of the nature of the leaks and whether u.s. soldiers are informers or people working with the u.s. will be put in danger by them talking about the method of the message rather than the message itself now the message itself paints a very different picture of the iraq the americans have been telling us about the last seven years some fifteen thousand iraqi deaths have not been accounted for so the history of iraq is being written by these documents which are as i say from the
7:11 pm
americans miles themselves. this week a top aide to saddam hussein was given the death sentence on charges of murder and crimes against humanity but the verdict has drawn international condemnation british m.p. jeremy corbyn says referring to the old regime was a ruse to deflect attention from the revelations by wiki leaks the reason they're doing it now correct this is to divert attention away from the wiki leaks issue because wiki leaks have exposed the torture that has gone on systematically and i think the death sentence pronounced for me is to divert attention absolutely no point in this form of victor's justice being carried out it will be nothing to reconcile people in iraq i think what we need is a real investigation into the behavior of the occupying forces and the iraqi army and its forces ever since the invasion of two thousand and three cancel the death penalty abandon the whole idea of the death penalty and instead look at the issues
7:12 pm
of human rights and justice and look at the behavior of forces ever since the invasion took place i do not see the value in executing terek izzy's any more than executing anybody else it will not bring the dead back it will further brutalise what is already a very brutal situation the death penalty does not work the seventy four year old these were sentenced to death by hanging on tuesday he served as deputy prime minister and foreign minister to iraq's former president saddam hussein he was convicted of killing members of shia political parties opposed to saddam's regime although he denied any personal involvement. brazil chooses dilma rousseff to be the country's first female president she will succeed the highly popular outgoing president lula da silva rousseff from the ruling party has campaigned on the success of a lot of silva who's credited with lifting millions of people out of poverty law

income from the poorest in the country has grown eight percent a year while the richest has grown only one and a half brazil is part of a trend in latin america of countries that are electing leftist governments that are essentially redistributing wealth to the poor in neighborhoods like this in brazil you see that most evidently and their program called both the familia. janina and her two daughters live together in one shared room about one hundred square feet in this favela or slum she gets by on a few odd jobs and she gets the equivalent of twenty four u.s. dollars a month from the government through both the familia and helps with food or sometimes i use it to pay a bill in return for both the familiar cash to naina has to show the government that her daughter samantha gets her vaccinations and is in school and intends at least eighty five percent of the time samantha's life is one of learning an opportunity where once in a slum like this reaching her age meant dropping out of school to work and help the family this is where i want them to said he a lot so in the future they'll have

7:16 pm
the deal which amends the controversial lisbon treaty was spearheaded by germany and france alterations include reigning in the excess of overspending nations it's all an attempt to shore up the euro after it came close to collapse last year the new system will be in place by two one hundred thirteen but m.e.p. gerard batten says the single currency should be scrapped to save europe's economy . their problem is always that there isn't enough european union not that there's too much of it but they don't have enough power so they see every crisis as an excuse for demanding more power to solve the problems that they've created in the first place economically in a terrible state because of the european single currency greece portugal spain all these countries their economies are going down the tubes the economies of countries like germany and france and the u.k. it would be a lot more healthy if i were in with regulation and in the case of france and germany with membership of the euro and of course they have to bear the tremendous burden of buying out countries like greece and of course spain and italy and
7:17 pm
portugal what we need is to get rid of the european single currency get rid of all the over regulation on business and allow economies to actually revive and become more healthy under. proper you know free market economic conditions the wide things that go on at the moment is they can ever inevitably only get worse mass opposition in france against the raising of the retirement age has weakened after president sarkozy's reform was voted into law and you said they would end a strike at nationwide oil refineries and the ports with protests have been taking place for several weeks the law has been successfully passed by the parliament the country's petrol stations should resume normal service by the middle of next week but experts say it is not only the protesters who suffered from the strike but the country's economy as a whole. certainly the of the protests and strikes that had caused some economic damage to those probably quite hard work next exact figure on this but one
7:18 pm
ought to bear in mind i think that the the people are actually striking they're not going to actually pay these these costs for the most part people are actually on strike from the public sector apart from the fact that they won't be paid for the days they were on strike they won't be affected by the negative economic fallout of the of these kinds of protests so that's the reason why impact they are able to go on actually i think. two israeli soldiers are awaiting sentencing for forcing a nine year old palestinian boy to check for bombs during the invasion of gaza almost two years ago activists however claim that the conviction bypasses those who allow the rampant practice to continue policy are met the boy who was thrust into the line of fire. majeed robber was just nine years old when soldiers grabbed him and made him check for bombs. i was just sitting here is really soldiers took me over there there were two bags and they told me to open them but i didn't know how
7:19 pm
to do it. he was terrified of the abandoned briefcases which the soldiers thought could be booby trapped and he's fighting family forced to watch one of us of one of them put his hand on my son shoulder and made him go into the toilet cubicle i heard a few shots fired soon afterwards i felt like i was dying my little daughter he was with me kept saying they killed him. and yet it was five years ago that israel supreme court made the law crystal clear human shielding is an absolute absolute no no injuring civilians deliberately is absolutely prohibited but the reality on the ground is still very different you had to show his army years in the palestinian territories he knew the supreme court's ruling but watched his sergeant ignore it so did he and the soldiers serving under him so what we did is we just bumped into a house nearby house we grabbed one of the kids we're talking with us put them in
7:20 pm
the front of the patrol you just walk your patrol in the village with your kid and then no one for a start one hundred sixty complaints were filed about the way soldiers behaved in the gaza war two years ago but only forty seven criminal investigations were ever tell without most of them have since been closed but i think that to ask a combat soldier and serve in the occupied territories where you use power. as human shield is like to ask you to drink coffee in the morning but israeli lawyers say convicting the two soldiers is to the i.d.f. scribus there are always soldiers who step out of line that that's part and parcel unfortunately of running a military operation to say that as a general phenomenon it's i.d.f. soldiers you use human shields that's absurd. for much of the family they take comfort they finally be getting justice even if it's only against low ranking soldiers and not the commanders they accuse of allowing human shields behind the laws back here r.t. jerusalem. now to some other world news this hour at least nineteen worshipper have
