those official political body set up after the revolution in libya started in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya there is no. then you there will be a new. you west be with them or you are against them they talk about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to bear all the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in air strike code and to leave and government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened it killing fifteen people including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us now we have to pay a very heavy price of. casualties civilian casualties and also military
4:02 pm
casualties i think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen any time soon they needed a ground in the symmetry still fresh while nato has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on with clashes containing and benghazi and nato intensify in its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the frontline many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here there won't be enough people left to experience it or if you know r.t. reporting from western libya. you want to have your say on the situation.
4:03 pm
the campaign. so far we can see that. support. your opinion on the subject. also at the moment. of the crew. today. these are the images. the day. the white house is standing by its decision to withdraw the u.s.
4:04 pm
garrison from afghanistan. support. thirty thousand troops by the end of next year france now says it's also prepared to pull all of its forces. but the. progress against that is fragile and reversible seventy thousand u.s. troops are set to remain in afghanistan with a complete promise to take place twenty fourteen the u.s. has been trying to convince congress that. is the right approach to winning the war . has this report. hillary clinton faced the difficult task and that is to justify the billions of u.s. taxpayers dollars on the war that seems to have no and inside and there was a great deal of skepticism among the senators even amid the announced withdrawal of troops in afghanistan so the secretary of state had to focus on podhoretz accomplished and there and did she mention the killing of key al qaeda members also that as she said the u.s.
4:05 pm
has broken the taliban momentum although various reports on the ground suggest the insurgency is not really subsiding there and some even say growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of the recent strikes that killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai had to make a harsh face saving statement warning nato that if they continue killing civilians the whole of the afghan population will treat them as occupiers actually it's not just the afghan people it's also the neighboring pakistan whose assistance is key to the u.s. efforts to u.s. efforts in afghanistan and nonetheless the secretary of state said the pakistanis would rather see the u.s. leave of gatiss then take a listen they would be perfectly happy if we picked up and left tomorrow but what
4:06 pm
would we get for it and what would they do with it and i think the answers to those two questions mean that the president's approach which is this steady careful transition while we try to work the the diplomatic and political piece of this which includes pakistan. is exactly the right way to go many afghans are actually worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes i mean these upcoming trip was across the u.s. as were perfectly stepped up airstrikes including drone strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first. train talent war strategy as they call it you know when you have no troops on the ground no deaths of your soldiers to just to fire back at home so it becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability shoes in pakistan the u.s. doesn't have to it's on the ground but it's chasing suspected terrorists with drone strikes and very actively doing so it ends up killing mostly civilians in those
4:07 pm
strikes the pakistanis are furious that their government is allowing the americans killed there to kill their own people they their leaders so for doing that in exchange for billions of dollars they received from washington some experts say by killing innocent people the u.s. is only going to generate more extremism in the region but that was not one of the issues hillary clinton addressed in her testimony before the senate committee on foreign relations this thursday going to talk to me live from washington before right here through this has been acquitted over charges of been sorting hate and discrimination he faced five separate counts for the controversial speech he gave attacking using them and comparing it to nazis them but the cool rules his comments fell within the boundaries of the distant political debate member of the european parliament for that place has told me that the verdict in the view of this trial is a victory for the freedom of expression. this is very important not just for here
4:08 pm
to do this but for freedom of speech in itself i think you cannot have a working democracy a functioning democracy if you don't have freedom of speech and certainly as a member of parliament villa's and everyone else should have the right to speak freely and openly on problems like mass immigration is a miser nation and multiculturalism you know we've always been told that multiculturalism and was going to be great and was going to solve a lot of problems on the contrary it has become a problem in itself and it's very important that everyone should be able to you know to put forward his own solutions to the problem and that it is balanced and free debate people from outside of europe who come to any country in the european union shoot themselves through the local laws the local way of living when in rome do as the romans do and this is very important multiculturalism in reality does not work in europe we are seeing big problems in major cities major capitals in western
4:09 pm
europe where we see power societies that have emerged you know with so many people who don't feel they have to adapt themselves to the way of living in the country they went to and so this has to change i think we need a much more restrictive immigration and integration policy. time now to check out some other international news we have for you today in our world update thirty four people were killed and over eighty injured in the iraqi capital after three explosions at the local market police say the bombs targeted a shiite mosque and there was no immediate claim of responsibility but such mosques are frequently attacked by sunni extremists including al qaeda. europeans hit syria with more sanctions aimed at seven individuals and four companies it says the measures were brought because of the gravity of the situation in the country currently thirty four people and businesses now face asset freezes and travel bans including president bashar assad sanctions follow months of clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces that reportedly killed more than

4:16 pm
a very heartwarming biopic it was nominated for a bafta that's something that i'm definitely going to be trying to see the movie is called called the arbor set in bradford in northern england should be something brilliant to see there but also you know the movie did i really want to check out is the angels of evil or the tally in movie about gangsters in the seventy's and the like a gangster movie who gets the big prize now if i was a betting man i would be looking towards american translation french movie. a. classic romance tale of young love with a bit of a twist when it turns out that one of those young lovers has a tendency to kill people very gritty drama supposed to be a little bit raunchy as well so that's really my tips to win it but i don't get to make those decisions there is a panel of of really the people that know what they're talking about the judges here now they're headed up by geraldine chaplin now if you might have guessed from that last name she does know a thing or two about the movie business she's the daughter of the great charlie

4:18 pm
well enjoy thank you for taking the time to be with us thank you times winter recently returned from a trip to the u.s. the didn't start well you were denied entry visa the decision was later reversed but why do you think this happened especially after the fact you visited the u.s. several times about the problem because each time in the past also when i went to u.s. and also to some other countries i exposed along policies of us in that way in afghanistan who occupy our country and did about it on women rights human rights and democracy and also imposed on our people and therefore you are set to drug laws who are put a copy of the taliban and they waste taxpayer money and billions of dollars as now
4:19 pm
this operation in afghanistan this criminal wall become open secret for good people around the world and us and also in other in open countries that's why white house couldn't be out to hear the truth and they want to block my wife same failure so i call yourself a puppet regime. imposed ban on my travel abroad by a freedom loving justice slapping to you. guys a show and an actor meister and us and even democratic minded publication they put a price. schonberg our mentor and finally give me reason you've said many times that the u.s. and nato pushed the afghans from the frying pan into the fire what exactly do you mean by that because these are no doubt alliance fundamental most warlords who are mentally same like taliban but only fiscally has been changed after nine eleven and these warlords they were in power from their duty to ninety six before of
4:20 pm
domination of the taliban in alone in kabul they culled more than sixty five thousand innocent people destroyed our national security raped even our four years old babies and grand old matters and many other crimes similar like the kind of one they committed against our people back there with bloody hands and with my scarf democracy suit and tie and they come in power after nine eleven and impose on our people and that's why it's situation day by day getting worse two wars but surely things were worse for women under the taliban regime when they couldn't go to school and walk in the street alone what sort of progress have you seen for women in afghanistan since two thousand and one it is true that after nine eleven tragedy . here in afghanistan especially in some big city us in metro they built some schools. they have access to drop an education i think most of problems so soft
4:21 pm
afghanistan especially in the fall with problems is in the well it years and districts that situation for women is like hell killing of women that much easier for the last and also taliban like killing a bird tens of thousands of innocent civilians has been killed by occupation forces school have all been from the sky most of them are foremen and children and rape cases style mistake while and so it's as see their tax bonding that goes to schools and a many other cities against woman crimes against women increasing rapidly even historic united states invaded afghanistan more than ten years ago. because the taliban regime was sheltering osama bin laden is dead now does that change anything for afghanistan unfortunately you know it those who give shelter to osama bin ladin now the u.s. government deny to any why it was to. my feet up puppet regime of how many guys they. have who are lost also have no problem with them they are not
4:22 pm
increase and they are fighting just because of the power because of the dollar and our puppets and enemies are for people especially for men but us government. put. their movie star by killing off or some opinion and. because i want to tell you elections are coming they want sam sexes in disallow action and to deceive people off the wars especially people after us for the people of afghanistan or some of bin laden has died has been killed ten year cycle. u.s. government used him as a nice to me to deceive people often. so. they need to have this criminal war and. so-called war on terror so you've clearly become a fierce critic of the u.s. mission in afghanistan but what happens when the united states leaves their plans
4:23 pm
to begin drawing down forces this summer really worried about civil war or the return of the taliban i think your main ted is this honest politician who contend with crimes in afghanistan and my country just lawyer from one hand they are telling publicly to our people and to get people that they will leave afghanistan by mid off two thousand and eleven or two thousand and twelve by the same but from another hand they're talking about because the strategy she was talking to you i spent a minute. military bases in afghanistan and they are here for getting strategy regional economy contrast and they're going to make another excuse and it's why you to scour maine to make an enemy to invent an enemy as always they need to an intimate to justify. war so that they leave afghanistan as now my people they face truly powerful enemies warlords taliban and al corp forces
4:24 pm
