on the koran that they will never reveal the site obviously the entity afraid that it could become some kind of a 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 secrets of his reeling and dealings as they call it with the west's very close ties with a lot of western countries before they decided that this dictator needed to go down with him being buried today it 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 actually wearing masks because obviously the smell despite the fact that he was being refrigerated was getting to the people that he's been portrayed as now and the first some of the first announcements that we're hearing in fact from most of. that he sees the country moving towards should real long which of course is
12:02 pm
a very hard line 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 and is for mr hardee the ennahda party so 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 and it may not play out the way they actually wanted but again huge challenges ahead for libya and what people here are certainly basking in the celebration of gadhafi is just a few of them it seems seems a really thinking about what that means for the future of the. cars of liberation are loud and clear. looks like a state of euphoria here where everybody is happy. you know. even though there's no formal you know law and order. but are they ignoring the price paid for freedom in
12:03 pm
libya some thirty thousand civilians are said to have been killed with four thousand still missing this house was one of nato's misses a single family lost five people including children when. their poll joy is top government but no one toss it in who is going to rebuild my house and who will compensate honest follows much of the country's infrastructure has been destroyed finding water is now a serious challenge in the capital and supplies and try to collect what they can. for the have a family with six kids we knew what to do live and to come here every day and get water is very difficult. they bombed the electric station in ben walid 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 libya could boast one of the best living
12:04 pm
standards on the continent with high life expectancy and low tide 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 ali asked us not to reveal his face during my play 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 speaking out on to the end of you he tells me if people were truly happy about the end of gadhafi and the way he was killed there would be millions 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 what we are told in new libya there would be justice
12:05 pm
when he was the head of this country and there was no justice in the way he was killed i have no hope for the future but it's just the beginning don't you think that it could get better with time but things will take time to change in the country. i think there will be a lot of fighting in the future right now and jamal and tamara there is fighting going on between tribes and anyone with a weapon has power who can do what they want. so many celebrate this new era in libya's history people like me are quietly bracing for the worst. and he's now a r.c. tipperary. and is continuing her coverage from libya online on her personal twitter feed and one of her latest tweets she posted images of. libyan kids rummaging through what's left of colonel to death these arsenal. even know libya was declared liberated it's no closer to peace and freedom but that's the view of chandan he's a spokesman for british civilians for peace in libya into the civil war
12:06 pm
between the rebel factions and the m.d.c. is all about to blow up even the leadership of the n.p.c. our state in this very clearly 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 now so this is the state of affairs in libya the explosion in sirte which killed one hundred people is definitely in indication of the complete anarchy which is libya now we need to have a central government that brings security in order which they had under gadhafi for 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 nato are stuck in libya and they cannot run in syria because of russia and
12:07 pm
china so one can only hope who has a sense of humanity that things will improve for the libyan people the point i'm making is that islam never has the west allowed a modern progressive and team player list islam islam to really develop. still to come on the program for you the thorny path into georgian politics but a critic of the current president who 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 quest to pull the eurozone out of its debt spiral has hit another snag several key meetings aimed at forming a plan have been canceled at a summit on wednesday heads of states will still meet but there's great doubt about 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
12:08 pm
a member and deputy chairman of the german parliament dr fox thanks very much indeed for joining us here on r.t. now a report on greece presented to 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 solve the problem 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 risk. is not really competitive at all there is a lot of money going into greece but i see at the end of the day we will find 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 the budget committee could understand that was going
12:09 pm
to be voting on the issue tomorrow but i understand the whole parliament is actually voting on planned guidelines for this in large euro zone rescue fund what do you expect to come out of that vote and what impact will that have on your izzo members. i think it's very important to the whole parliament as well to forward and we have made this afternoon already in all parties almost only the leftist the communists are not walking along but all you are those are the first after european financial stability fund we wanted to be safe tomorrow we rule be sure that we have the where huge majority in the german parliament tomorrow which will safeguard first of all the situation of other european countries because we have to ring friends other countries in case of any quick default i would like to obviously talk about the whole of the eurozone but just quickly on the domestic matters there where you are in germany if that fund is increased it will of course have even more
12:10 pm
of a pressure on the german taxpayer so politically more pressure on angela 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 than two hundred eleven billion but we will have a possibility to. take to you look into the e f s f and to make it stronger by kind of leverage possibilities and i see this is very important that we have great possibilities in the first half that has been decided today and will be parliament tomorrow you're very optimistic but many are saying 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
12:11 pm
am quite positive that we will find a solution tomorrow evening because most of the difficulties between america. are solved and you have to know but america mention it today in our city you see as you fraction that there will be first of all no be. in the picture will be not in war you see you support bank and has to step allies the euro zone but the year for all the possibilities now available which is very important in seeing is going to have do to the possibilities which we are going to give to the office tomorrow 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
12:12 pm
the greek economy obviously to collapse and 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 by crease as such because in the european constitution it country cannot be forced to step out of the euro it can be only used. to something which government has to decide first of all we have to see how we are going to software create problem it is create cannot pay back. stab at all will be there will be a sort of hair card talk about maybe sixty percent or even more which is not decided finally yet but that it is a massive haircut isn't it and for banks the implications for then athens is somewhat in some ways as a cash cow for banks fed with those a huge bailouts do you think the banks really will be willing to help out i think
12:13 pm
they have no other choice because either greece of default called. default if you're talking about a selective default the banks have to accrete because otherwise they don't get money. and just could 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 is growing disenchantment across eastern europe riots across the south what overall impact could this have your sounding optimistic about tomorrow's meeting but clearly this future isn't looking that rosy as it. i think we will overcome the situation first of all the euro is still a very stable currency and you can see it in these markets in the states the euro has appreciated against for instance the euro star quite a lot it was a one thirty a couple of weeks ago and now it's already almost close to one forty
12:14 pm
which shows that confidence in the euro and the euro as such is a good currency is the only problem we have is some countries in the euro zone and are we doing well by far too high debts but 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 are 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 eras own members those countries that have appeared to be profit in the past really want to lose their autonomy in the way that they 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 no i think there is still the only way in order to stabilize the euro and the eurozone as such is to come to a creator cream and as far as national debt is concerned as far as new debts is
12:15 pm
concerned as far as a budget is concerned the budget has to be evil and there should be no more new particularly in those countries which are already in a way not according to the masses quite area and we have to follow them 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 this deputy chairman of the german parliament the bundestag thank you andy. thank you. well as the situation in here up worsens the once fermentable unity of the european union is cracking and lead a wave of euro skepticism sweeping the bloc. tell me why we should work to the age of seventy two seventy three to pay for stuff their lives in downtown athens to reach fifty we shouldn't we're not going to it's the end and you can catch a full interview as well as share your opinion on it all at. dot com.
