and reforms that people say they will keep fighting until they see change anything now is at the scene for us. egypt's uprising might have ousted president mubarak but to them he's far from gone thousands of people out here on top here they all see different visions of egypt but they join together because the people we've spoken to feel like their revolution has been stolen we go through the boat the mobile talks the potato chip has a life and when the taste of freedom was short lived the military is in full power mass media is being choked and oppression still rampant force. i think they werent catching activists as much as they are doing now and take them to a prison i guess now they're being treated by the want to work with this still that in the first place he's known simply as uncle hostile here in egypt
9:04 am
a social network or with a twitter army of some thirty thousand followers the military thought it was of civilians have to stop immediately immediately this is you know one of the major demands we're putting forward one of many demands including transparent trials for the fallen regime and the purging of corrupt officials they got rid of mubarak you know their high ranking officials but now egypt will be the same way it was before january sort of well that little if it's a little mubarak there may need to mark's father is what they're calling them for running the country people like myself have been arguing for taking the high you to the factories they can hire you to the universities the king to have to the workplaces meaning that in every single word police we have an egypt that is i mean no one ever was never interested in politics in till january she was shot with twenty three pellets by riot police twenty of which are still in her like the pain is finally gone but her perseverance is not the barrier of fear is

gone and she will continue to fight to the end. i want every every egyptian citizen to be treated as a human being every protester has their own vision of the egypt they're fighting for some want to constitution and then free elections others think the new law should follow the vote but one thing that brings them all together is that this egypt is not the end. and he said no way are cheap. and plenty more stories are coming your way this. clue day just before the anniversary of your worst massacre since the nazi era travels to trip thirty three people are still in search of justice. slater but now rebels in libya government forces on the road to tripoli they're now moving towards the key town of his lead time after a six week long pause but the capital still remains over one hundred fifty
9:06 am
kilometers away the rebels say their progress has been slow due to a lack of ammunition and nato support and there have been suggestions that the alliance is running low on that south and has asked germany for munitions reports now on the lens a surprise to an armchair opposing the mission from the outset. more bombs wanted just over one hundred days of airstrikes and with just over two thousand bombs dropped by nato allies on libya the mission has run into an unexpected problem a lack of shells to drop where there is demand there is supply in this case germany has agreed to provide the much needed ammunition previously berlin has abstained from voting in favor of the un security council resolution on libya a move that surprised some and good others but it may now be backing out of a decision the germans may not want to participate but they have decided that the position does not preclude them actually subline weapons in this case or systems

something that russia for example has been doing for many years but whatever the reasons for scrapping the thirty year old program for those who devoted their lives to it is the end of their dream job it's kind of sad because i've already seen a lot of my friends go you know because they'll be more people that are probably never see again it also means the end of a once vibrant scientific community that's grown up around the shuttle going to shut down. a quick update on our breaking news this hour on the passenger ferry that sank on the riva vulgar in russia's republic of touch a star one hundred sixty nine people have been rescued from the vessel but at least one woman's died and three others a missing their majesties ministry has deployed teams to this scene an effort to save those who are missing and it's not yet know how the vessel got into trouble before sinking in twenty meter deep water so the double deck a ship called the bow garia was built in one thousand nine hundred fifty five in
