revelation mainstream media is a vase after an insider tells the shocking truth behind it was really pulling the strings in washington. violence flared up again this week around cos it was northern border as nato troops to tampa to dismantle a serbian roadblock local serbs don't recognize appreciation administration as a legitimate authority and have barricaded roads through disputed checkpoints that albanian seized earlier with the help of k. four troops are just like the one to casa to witness the deadlock. in some parts of the world this walking road with probably be part of an extreme safari in kosovo it is now quite expensive. ever says july's border dispute many lives have been dependent on this godforsaken grable road through the mountains now this is the only way that belgrade can use to deliver food and petrol for the tens of thousands of serbs living in northern parts of the course of the serbs had been barricaded in
2:15 am
the road since july in response to the cost of the police checkpoints which enforce the trade embargo between belgrade and the beat of it and choose day the situation turned critical again clashes between the very caring serbs and the case for troops led to multiple injuries on both sides ok for blame because it was serbs for starting the violence but injured alexandre beach a father of two saw it differently but. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be a perforated wound of my lung nato forces also claimed they used only rubber bullets and tear gas against the protesting mob this was quickly rejected by doctors in need of itself fuelling speculation as to who restarted the. seven men and heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises there were not
2:16 am
wounds from rubber bullets not a single of them had a rubber all those wounds were caused by a regular bullet which we extract from their bodies facilitation. to be killed on friday. everything serves but they came too late it's a big trucks pulled up at the border crossing the forehead or with. the barricades how exactly nato troops managed to disregard the un's plans is unknown but they quickly set up a perimeter to the web. that journalists and he should and should do if you would have for anyone trying to penetrate it they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like three nineteen ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian separatists are now out there infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and of resolution twelve forty four it's totally destroyed their standing
2:17 am
as any sort of mediator belgrade has reacted with indignation and halted negotiations with possible until the dispute is resolved meanwhile the gauge for refuses to comment on their actions and goes to the border barricades the border is open to assure of trucks blocking a breach just meters away from the destroyed road block suggests this battle is far from over betters like this one are scattered all across northern called civil war and they pretty much reflect the mood of the local serbs it seems they would never give in and accept the fact that they're living in a self-proclaimed state and in this book a me and melting pot nobody knows where this standoff go and. order can we get another frozen territorial dispute let's see or sense the sea reporting from kosovo . peace now is john laughlin says the situation in costa remain relatively calm
2:18 am
until the e.u. step down. it's the european union and nato so-called peacekeepers or other in forces who have caused this problem because of zero issue the situation in the north of kosovo is what we call a frozen conflict in other words it's an unresolved anomalous situation which has been relatively peaceful now for more than ten years and it seems that the european union is determined to make it not peaceful anymore in my view the powers of you lex which is the european union body that sent the troops there to enforce the new concentration in i believe that you lex itself is illegal i take the view that it's the united nations which should be governing kosovo according to president bush and to all forty four and not you lex. and indeed i think one can make a case for saying that there are parallel structures now in kosovo the european union on one hand and the united nations on the other but legally speaking it should be
2:19 am
united nations the european union itself in a state of advanced collapse while there is serbia trying to join it and why is serbia determined to sacrifice part of her own territory a very strict part of her territory so that of that's the reality and i'm afraid for the situation where to improve until belgrade at brandon's this in my view suicidal goal of joining the e.u. . ok be updated on the tense situation in the region of course but and meantime you can always watch the latest videos from there on our you tube channel you'll find they are all the latest news features interviews and and alice's you can also give us your feedback via the common section so that's all at youtube dot com slash r.t. . if.

the. revolutionary euphoria in age of back in february soon gave way to disillusionment with both the people and political forces dissatisfied with the way the country's being run. many feel led down by the transitional military council which has so far failed to implement promised democratic reform or has any so now we went to cairo to find out more. we knew that change had come to egypt a new chapter called freedom and democracy due to book by its cover when reading post mubarak egypt it's pretty twee no lines where you'll find a new chapter hasn't been published edited or slightly revised we still have the
