1:04 pm
professor abraham of mr luzhin if that alfie is indeed dead doesn't this by the question why didn't he try to flee to another country or at least escape be a decisive battle for sirte. let's admit the fact that the buffy has stood up and fought to the last breath just like he said that he would the guy could have escaped like you said and he could of. ran away but he didn't he fought and he gave away his sons as fighters in this fight just like he promised so i think what we have here is a heroic lust pond and their defense of libya against and and they go back and razor ok what will happen bow to the remaining pockets of resistance do you think a new boy its leader will emerge or do you think the fight is well it will be over right now. i think what we'll have is
1:05 pm
a rerun of the scenario in iraq and out of the history of real time we had a leader fall he has set an example for thousands of followers this has happened and palestine and the iraq and some other places the flock chose to fight to the death will give an example to all those who are jerks and they are russian and libya. ok you know it now that there are reports that he has sided with you before the rebels have been saying that they would have liked to see get off the stand trial what do you think we would have learned about the events we witnessed and maybe if we had stood trial. i think we have to take heed of the fact that he was caught. and this was shown on t.v. many channels have shown t.v. . clips t.v. clips of cop duffy one that branch them blood and he was assassinated after he was
1:06 pm
caught one that this is a very heavy us crime against and one that none and the public will see it as such but i have met tonight someone has missed several people who dislike him though that i mean he had been did accuse gadhafi himself had been accused also of killing a lot of people so how do you put that into the context of what you're saying ok a man has been injured and killed i think we have to put things in perspective this is a political fight against and they led invasion and nobody today the weather and russia or the rest of the world especially of the world has any of knowledge and the more that what we have in libya now is not driven. by nato stooges ok i let's talk about now about the it reports the media are very very quick to jump on reports that gadhafi is dead and that a lot of them calling it a spectacular victory do you think that's justified. i think it's a very sad day for all people around the world who oppose foreign heads of
1:07 pm
money if you are untie imperialist if you are for independence and if you are for the liberation of the third world from imperialism then this is a very sad day for you in the head the only people rejoicing in our monthly day out of the muslim brotherhood and their supporters so that other people are asking questions i was saying earlier that i've talked to people who dislike free who dislike the way he was killed they think this tells you something about the moral of the so-called revolutionaries he should have been at least given proper medical treatment and should have should have been given a proper trial at least if you claim to be democratic and supporter of human rights then you are setting a bad example for the kind of rule that is to follow in the future and mind you that duffy was not the only one killed that way many of his lieutenants were killed
1:08 pm
the same way and we have many people coming out on the arab media saying that many were caught including the defense minister of the cutouts regime and killed just the same way. again much indeed for your thoughts there in jordan based on his professor thank you. you know our will that we would like to know what do you think about the reported death of colonel gadhafi and today we're asking you when gadhafi is dead what happens now in libya and so far the most popular response is west florida oil fields surrounded by chaos and will emerge and years of being full and slow recovery. now some of you say that the colonel's death will lead to a green zone in tripoli and total control everywhere and only four percent of you say election reforms atmosphere will head to our home to cast your vote. to greece now were clashes broke out in central athens between rival groups of
1:09 pm

and their opposition to the government let it. roll over the political system of greece and for europe. people hit the fill it's truly angry we see no anger reaching a boiling point line again here on the streets of athens. it's an extremely volatile situation that the rest and yes in the i think it's going to be watching this very closely because this is a problem that affects great the situation. all right well let's go to northern kosovo now where nato peacekeepers have unleashed tear gas on ethnic serbs pushing them away from a disputed border crossing the serbs had barricaded the area claiming it belongs to them as they still don't consider kossovo an independent country artist many of the national is there with the latest for us. we are now at the scene of the tensions of this tent of between the soldiers of k. for the nature that peacekeeping force here in kosovo and the cost of insert civilians the soldiers have come here early in the morning as you can see on army
1:11 pm
to be called the riot police three of them behind this very case all as you can see frightening in full riot gear to try to remove the barricades that ethnic serbs erupted here three months ago but the ethnic serbs they were here in kosovo have gathered here to prevent the peacekeepers from doing that from taking the barricades away as they say nato as well as k. four here in the region known as peacekeepers they are exceeding their mandate the u.n. security council resolution number twelve forty four the only legal reason for that to be here but there right now rather is system pristina in. its institutions over the course of a over. the territory that the ethnic serbs to see as their heartland as an independent state they don't recognize also as two thousand and eight self-proclaimed independence and don't recognize the authorities and laws and
1:12 pm
institutions from time to time the peacekeepers and using loudspeakers address into the crowds and calling on that to disperse and threatening otherwise use and from time to time to use in these schools which is captive cast pepper spray this is something like tear gas it has the same pattern human being as the tear gas has but serbs are not ready to surrender spacey themselves with masks using special liquid to wash their eyes and they say they will be here till they bury and as well as it is needed to protect their rise well from time to time the leaders of the serbs here are dressed in crowds calling on. to remain calm and peaceful as much as possible but as you can see the situation may look staple but this is very dramatic this is an absolutely no we situation and
1:13 pm
tensions very high and it's boiling. all the time last month when the case for try to remove the barricades by force they used tear gas against protesters and rubber bullets even and at least seven civilians have been injured and this time as well fears are growing that it could be fall and they could be blood and victims from both sides. that was artie's beef and often on the ground in kossovo there she is updating us with all the latest on air and online as well you can head to our twitter page for all the latest tweets from her and can also get all our new video spy are here to chat. about there's a cost war brewing in the united states that's a stark warning from the occupy wall street movement which is into its fifth week on showing no sign of giving up well for them the yawning gap between rich and poor is getting far to wife and that could cost the government dearly as good if you took young explains. a class war seemed impossible in
1:14 pm
a country where being wealthy is part of the national dream good as thousands marched on wall street and in other parts of america protesting against the system that they claim works only for the benefit of the super rich individuals and corporations many ask whether america is facing a class war that it's hollywood the rich are getting richer while the middle class is class a class war is being waged in a burka today unfortunately the wrong side is winning the super called one percent of winners are the nation's top corporations which this year made the economies very slow growth and non the less made record profits thanks to various loopholes plenty of these corporations pay little or nothing in taxes the corporations say they need the tax breaks to be able to invest more in to hire more america's second largest energy producers chevron is now lobbying not to let the government tax them more and to my question how many americans has chevron hired since the tax breaks
1:15 pm
were introduced in two thousand and four the c.e.o. of the company said speech there were up slightly a few thousand in our upstream business over the years but not significantly not significantly on our chevron payroll a few thousand jobs for the billions of dollars in tax stimulus the government gave them economists say married his largest corporations are sitting on more than three trillion dollars. and not investing in the economy unemployment in the us remains over nine percent when we live in a nation where corporations can profit off a child dying at the same time with their parents in a bankruptcy they're trying to pay for these kids medical bills. what does that say about our country the wall street answer to people's rage and if you kill will be nobody held three jobs but as one of the protesters try to put a word of objection we call it all done all done it's not your show monkey i'm
1:16 pm
talking to these people hold on i'm not talking to you you can. talk you through your personal success and money have always been part of the american dream reaction when you read the aspiration to become rich is deeply ingrained in american society and widely promoted by pop culture but those who took to the streets have made it clear that the situation when the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer is not their idea of the american dream it could be the end of it and the beginning of a class war i'm going to check our reporting from washington our king. let's have a quick look at some other world news in brief this hour violence broke out in the streets of the korean capital as police use water cannons and tear gas to disperse a student led protests at least forty people were arrested what a peaceful march for educational reforms and that in clashes over a two day strike was calling for free and quality education students also claim the president yet was failing to distribute the wealth from

partisans the only people fighting in this part of the world it's part of their campaign to lead vines history in the direction of double genocide the very far right model that posits that communism or not since them are equal lithuania officially recognizes their crimes committed by the soviet union and nazi regimes are equal and other european states to do the same the nazi crimes should not be excused because if you want there were some crimes wrong for. there are only worse they were genocide. they were trying to wipe out a whole people and so instead of focusing on an eighty six year old holocaust survivor many say lithuanian authorities should rather at least be opening an investigation and those amalgamates is willing to participate in a basic a search for the reasons he believes the lithuanians are trying to run someone if
