gadhafi may be laid to rest with the controversy surrounding him amid speculation he could have taken a group of potentially damaging secrets to his desert grave. fresh trouble looms for the eurozone with the promise solutions of the worsening debt crisis becomes modern political bickering and leadership rivalries. street movement ready for yet another round of worldwide protests to mark the g twenty summit and calls for governments to crack down on the global casino currency trading. internationally using comment live from moscow this is all a t with twenty four hours a day. five days of being on public display inside a meat market fridge the slain former libyan leader moammar gadhafi has been buried
12:01 pm
his body was taken to a secret location in the desert to prevent his grave becoming a shrine for sympathizers or being vandalized so now he is in tripoli keeping across developments. will be down to finally buried at dawn this tuesday in secret for witnesses swearing on the koran that they will never reveal the site obviously the entity afraid that it could become some kind of us shrine to the late leader but also i think it's fair to say we'll hear this from analysis throughout the day that with him to the grave when a lot of the secret of his wheeling and dealing as they call it with the west very close ties with a lot of western countries before they decided that this dictator needed to go down with him being buried today needs to be pointed out that it was completely not in accordance with islamic law and he was on display for some of those days in a shopping center after being kept you know walk in refrigerator for days you see these pictures coming out of that site people act. we wearing masks because
12:02 pm
obviously the smell despite the fact that he was being refrigerated was getting to the people he's been put to rest now and the first some of the first announcements that we're hearing in fact from most problems neal that he sees the country moving towards should be along which of course is a very hard by islamic way of leading the country at the same time just recent elections in tunisia where official results are expected to come in later on tuesday but so far it looks like the leading party that will take over most of the positions in parliament will be an islamist party the ennahda party so it really is something that in a way is ironic i think it's fair to say the west very strongly pushing for these so-called democracies to be born i do may not play out the way they actually want to but again huge challenges ahead for libya while people here are certainly basking in the celebration of the down the steps few of them it seems seems are really thinking about what that means for the future of libya because of liberation
12:03 pm
are bound to increase. it looks like a state of euphoria here i mean everybody is happy and you know. even though there is no formal you know law and order but are they ignoring the price paid for freedom in libya some thirty thousand civilians are said to have been killed and four thousand still missing this house was one of nato's misses a single family lost five people including children during the meeting at tottenham farm with joyce to all governments no one sauce who is going to rebuild my house who will compensate for loss much of the country's infrastructure has been destroyed finding water is now a serious challenge in the capital and supplies and trying to collapse but they kept. him a family with. the leave to come here and get water is very difficult.
12:04 pm
because they'd gone the electric station and been wally for ten days they haven't fixed the problem at least we can come here for now. but maybe not much longer. before the war there be a good boast one of the best living standards on the continent with high life expectancy and low tile mortality rates but after months of heavy bombing and fierce fighting the country's social and economic achievements have been brutally reversed its people now betting on a heavily armed and inexperienced group to govern them through a fresh start in the wake of destruction and he asked us not to reveal his face during my pay for saying this. that if you talk or see anything positive about gadhafi you will have serious problems with the rebels there is no government in speaking out on to the end of you he tells me if people were truly happy about the
12:05 pm
end of gadhafi and the way he was killed there would be millions if not thousands on the streets to get their free movies i'm sure some sixty to seventy percent of the country does not approve of the way gadhafi was killed we expected him to be tried as a prisoner of war not killed like and we are told in new libya there will be justice when he was the head of this country and there was no justice in the way he was killed i have not hope for the future but it's just the beginning don't you think very quick get better with time but things will take time to change in the country it's not the only agreement as i think there will be a lot of fighting in the future right now and tomorrow and tomorrow in this fighting going on between tribes and anyone with a weapon has power and can do what they want. so many celebrate this new era in libya's history people like army are quietly bracing for the worst. and he's now a r.c. tipperary. and a niece is continuing her coverage from libya online on her personal twitter feed
12:06 pm
one of the latest tweets posted images. of libyan kids rummaging through what's left of colonel gadhafi arsenal. even though libya was declared a liberated it's no closer to peace and freedom but that's the view of second chance he's a spokesman for produce civilians for peace in libya. into the civil war between the rebel factions and the m.d.c. is all about to blow up even the leadership of enthusiasts taking this very clearly and so there is no peace in libya so where is the substance of any type of liberation or freedom there is none or all my friends who were involved in the media before the fall of tripoli refused to speak on camera refused to speak to any international journalist because they're being hunted literally an hour so this is the state of affairs in libya the explosion in sirte which killed one hundred people it's definitely indication of the complete anarchy which is libya now we need to have a central government that brings truth in order which they had under gadhafi for
12:07 pm
forty two years look at iraq and they were security and there was some semblance of safety for the people under saddam hussein and now it's the wild west it's completely an acoustic but i think the resistance will grow and let's see what happens and they thought stuck in libya and they cannot want in syria because of russia and china so. one can only hope who has a sense of humanity that people improve for the libyan people the point i'm making is that in islam never has the west allowed a modern progressive anti and islam islam to really develop. is still to come on the program for you the thorny path into georgian politics but in the critique of the current president there is stripped of citizenship and threatened with expulsion from the country after announcing plans to run a government. that's a little later for you here on r.t. but first the turbulence quest to pull the eurozone out of its debt spiral is hit another snag several key meetings aimed at forming a plan have been cancelled at
12:08 pm
a summit on wednesday heads of states will still meet but there's great doubts over whether e.u. leaders can overcome their differences well for more on what tomorrow may or may not bring when are joined live from germany dr michael fox he's a member and deputy chairman of the german. thanks very much indeed for joining us here on r.t. in a report on greece presented to e.u. leaders on saturday painted a very grim picture saying that athens might need hundreds of billions more in bailout cash is europe's commitment to athens that strong. well first of all good evening to moscow yes indeed we want to create problems and i'm quite sure that we are on the right parts first of all we have to acknowledge we have to know that there is a lot of problems with squeeze crease is not really competitive at all and there is a lot of money going into greece but i think the end of the day we will find
12:09 pm
a suitable solution tomorrow evening where we will indeed get an indication of germany's position on its commitment to more understand that the whole german parliament not just originally a budget committee could understand that was going to be voting on the issue tomorrow but i understand the whole parliament is actually i voted on planned guidelines for this in large euro zone rescue fund what do you expect to come out of that post and what impact will that have on your his own members i think it's very important to the whole parliament as well to forward and we have made this afternoon already all parties almost all of the leftist economists are now out walking along but all the others are in the office of the european financial stability fund we wanted to be safe from all the rule be sure that we have three huge majority in the german parliament tomorrow which will safeguard first of all the situation of other european countries because we have to ring phones other
12:10 pm
countries in case of any cui default i would like to obviously talk about the whole of the euro zone but just quickly on the domestic matters there where you are in germany if that funding is increased it will of course have even more pressure on the german taxpayer so politically more pressure and i'm going to merkel then. no it is not increased we have four hundred forty billion available and it will be not more and germany share of that four hundred forty billion is two hundred eleven billion and there will be no single euro more then two hundred eleven billion but we will have a possibility to. take you all to you look into the first half and to make it stronger oh boy kind of leverage possibilities and i see this is very important that we have great political views in the first half that has been decided today in parliament tomorrow your very optimistic but many are saying
12:11 pm
there's so much political disunity arguments going on obviously between sarkozy and merkel that the root of the problem is the political disunity do you really feel that we are perhaps on the brink of a solution for the eurozone despite the tensions we're seeing behind the scenes. i am quite positive that we will find a solution from our evening because most of the difficulties between america and nicolas sarkozy are soft and you have to know where to go america mention it today in our city you see as you fraction that there will be first of all no p.c. be. in the picture will be not in walls that you see disappear bank and western step allies and euro zone but the year for surface all the possibilities now available which is very important to see is going to have due to the possibilities which we are going to give to the from or
12:12 pm
a new world perspective it's going to be up to a billion or even more possibilities the first half of which is a lot does that mean then greek economy the greek economy could well be saved we may not see a collapse some may say actually that could be the best thing for the eurozone for the greek economy obviously to collapse and that maybe indeed even leave the eurozone. well that's another question which is not to be decided by european congress it can be only decided to increase as such because in the european constitution a country cannot be forced to step out of the euro you can be only use. to something which a greek government has to decide first of all we have to see how we are going to solve the greek problem it is create cannot pay. it all will be there will be. from here cards talk about maybe sixty percent or
12:13 pm
even more which is not decided finally yet but it is a massive haircut isn't it and for banks the implications are then athens is somewhat in some ways a cash cow or for banks fed with those e.u. bailouts do you think the banks really will be willing to help out i think they have no other choice because either greece of default or called. to fold if you're talking about a selective default the banks have to agree because otherwise going to want get money. but can we talk about the overall effect this is having on europe britain's return to its old internal anti europe squabbling which we saw yesterday in its parliamentary vote there's growing disenchantment across eastern europe riots across the south what overall impact could this have you're sounding optimistic about tomorrow's meeting but clearly this future isn't looking that rosy is it. we will overcome the situation first of all the euro is still
12:14 pm
a very stable currency and you can see it in these markets in the states or europe has appreciated against for instance the u.s. dollar quite a lot it was a one thirty couple of weeks ago and now it's already almost close to one forty which shows no confidence in the euro and i see the euro as such is a good currency the only problem we have is some countries in the euro zone are not really doing well but by far too high that spot i have the feeling each and everybody has understood that they have to change and they are on the way to change even italy is now changing and they're doing reforms which is necessary in order to have a smaller national debt and just very briefly greater economic governance over those countries do you think those era's own members those countries that have appeared to be profit in the past really want to lose their autonomy in the way that they
12:15 pm
control their public spending and the taxation do you not think there will be those who want to rebel against being controlled centrally just briefly now i see the only way in order to stabilize the euro in the euro zone as such is to to come to a creative creamers as far as national debt is concerned as far as new debts this concerned and as far as a culture is concerned the budget has to be evil and there should be no more new particularly in those countries which are already. not according to the masses criteria we have to follow on our search criteria very intensively dr michael folks thanks so much for your time we really appreciate you being live here on r.t. with his deputy chairman of the german parliament and going to stack thank you you . thank. well as the situation in europe worsens the once formidable of unity of the european union is cracking amid a wave of euro skepticism sweeping the bloc. children who are we should look to the
