1:13 am
protesting against these measures and the government is still pushing ahead with it well at that point it really have to not go see any more so they're going to be taking to the streets and this is just very clear that's a tilt that's a pocket and there are patients who will be bringing you all the latest from the states about this later on today. so forth reporting there from greece europe's paymaster germany is expected to bear the brunt of greece's second bailout german and peter will says the people in this country are unhappy about footing the bill and doubts whether it will have any effect anyway. treaties it was regulated that there must be any bailout because. otherwise you. don't stand for your country. and that's wrong. each country is responsible

1:15 am
operation into the legal shadows. decision to task the cia with tracing down marks a major escalation of america's covert war in yemen which is not really covert it's one of the on an undeclared wars that the u.s. is waging against terror but up to this day in yemen it's been the u.s. military that was running the show that was carrying out the drone strikes so if you can walk ration with the yemeni counterterrorism units for now and get that power vacuum and all the political turmoil in yemen the cooperation is falling apart and according to u.s. officials because the cia operates under different legal authorities than the military the cia will have greater latitude to carry out strikes no matter what the political climate here greater life you know we're going to have anybody from mission creep out of the country the yemeni leader who is now out of the country up to months of violent popular revolt against him and his government for many years
