8:04 pm
gadhafi libya by monday night but the regime it helped into power now faces a nationwide gun problem the national transitional council must take control over the leftover arms in the country and international observers say infighting between former rebels are now split over their agendas is already going on marty's and he said now reports from libya. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover are in libya their number one fear warehouses thought to hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft but it's through made so i made two allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite well on country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in its possession and those white my pins are becoming
8:05 pm
a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security we try to control the bends and we check if there is somebody has work and we ask him if he has a thursday show for this we are not. checkpoints have been sent out across tripoli to check that those carrying lakin's have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national transition committee to return their arms the question now is what if they don't and what does that mean up for pulse gadhafi libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only word thing that we were make some mechanism how to give the weapons put we see something very different i asked the head commander what the plan is to disarm the population . i swear i don't know of people. who live in and it was just at the
8:06 pm
home of the c.v.r. man who were in the. right and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we're showing this. to these other weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as many firearms. so you know how many weapons there are in libya i think it's like i said we've been saying leave yeah i think everybody have. some think the fun of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadhafi and post truthful chaos as groups find out this is fadel true power. what you have now in libya is schools of armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have
8:07 pm
no respect from a through actually either they've opportunistically used to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is an intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions which have overthrown the gadhafi regime. and he's now a artspeak tripoli libya's national transitional council which was never elected to power is now running the country some of its members are ex cuffy loyalists and many of its fighters are said to have links to al qaeda mental east expert commentator carl sorrow thinks libya is turned into a volatile country. people have way too much faith in the n.p.c. which is quite obviously not in control of this jewish and on the ground in libya at the moment and in fact you can see the tension between the n.t. see command and some of the more islamist led groups on the ground and in fact if you see some of the fighters on the ground they have the correct terroristic sort
8:08 pm
of islamic fighters that have a long. history of propaganda stand on words so this illusion identity has full control on the ground is not actually correct and i would say that would be events but we are seeing them could be personal very bad cause could be the norm around or war but maybe another party in libya could have to present a very solution of the estimation that's to delegitimize the sunnis is working. down there in d.c. that still has a lot of former gadhafi associates and cronies within it so that's really the nub of the problem colonel gadhafi may have gone but some of his secrets could still pose a threat to western leaders. the leaders most influential son saif al islam threatens to spill the beans on how libyan cash helped this nicholas sarkozy had many others a power that is if he gets his way in the world right support. our time marjorie.
8:09 pm
now on the israel where recent airstrikes on gaza have left at least ten pounds to me instead the action came in response to rocket attacks on the jewish state that left one dead it is the worst outbreak of violence and months and follows a successful prisoner swap deal between israel and hamas archies costlier brings us the details from tel aviv. and one of the concerns people have is that among the hundreds are the palestinian prisoners who are still in israeli jails and who still need to be released as part of that prisoner exchange deal that saw one israeli soldier return to israel in exchange for more than a thousand palestinian prisoners many of the palestinian prisoners who still need to be released along to the democratic front for the liberation of palestine and that is one of the smaller palestinian groups that has claimed responsibility for a number of these rockets that have been fired into israel in recent days so there are many people here saying that this does jeopardize that prisoner exchange deal
8:10 pm
and that it will be almost a convenient excuse for the israelis not to release the hundreds of palestinian prisoners that it is still committed to release as part of that deal there were more than twenty thousand people that took to the streets of tel aviv they were not surprised by the violence they say that this is something that has happened in the past and it is the government's way of detracting attention away from domestic problems in circle if you look at the international media coverage the international media was much more focus from what was happening in terms of security concerns and on israel's border with gaza and then on what was happening domestically here and this is exactly what protesters say they say that they want money to not be screened so much on the hour on the defense budget before cuts they are to be made so that more money can be streamed domestically and certainly this increase in violence and the government's response in terms of the fact that it is going to give gaza a harsh hand to tracks attention away from what people here say is the ongoing situation where they have very real demands that are more often than not
8:11 pm
overshadowed by the excuse of security concerns. there and staying with the subject of tel aviv where the court has sentenced a former israeli soldier to four. years in prison for releasing classified military documents some of the lead files of dujail military officials approving the assassination of palestinians in the west bank but those claims aren't even being investigated sorry bashi says that undermines is really low. in this case a whistle blower blew a loud and disturbing whistle the military is violating international law and the directors of the israeli supreme court in carrying out assassinations in situations in which they are required to try to make an arrest and so the state attorney's office prosecuted the soldier but failed to seriously investigate the conduct revealed in those documents conduct with raises serious questions about rule of law in a democratic system that pattern of behavior violating orders by the supreme court because of the supreme court said this and that said you must try to arrest as part
8:12 pm
of a pattern or practice within the israeli system and it's something that's very disturbing because when the army does not obey the orders by the supreme court the supreme court is actually more reluctant to issue those orders because no court wants to issue orders that are going to be ignored and then of course you have a serious threat to the rule of law because in a democratic system the army is of course supposed to listen to what usual system tells them to do. scores of demonstrators supporting the occupy wall street movement have been arrested across the u.s. riot police and denver moved in detaining activists who refused to leave their camp . earlier police used pepper spraying to disperse the crowds at least sixty people were arrested in the streets of texas oregon and california after police when she came to enforce curfews and moving protesters belongings it was nature threatening demonstrations in new york after the city's had unseasonable snow blizzard however the activists say they are ready to withstand harsh weather conditions to make their plates and there's advantage as you can reports from washington the occupy
8:13 pm
protesters there are serious and the paternal nature oh. the peaceful nationwide movement that turned violent overnight in oakland. police attacked protesters with tear gas stun grenades. large bombs and rubber bullets we had been there for weeks we have been taking care of ourselves there's been no incidents with the police and they came in one of the most terrifying shows of force that i've ever seen in my entire life and they came in and they either flushed everyone out of the camp or less than them and then they began to systematically trample all of that sets them apart and this new people really really angry a former u.s. marine an iraqi war veteran was seriously injured by a tear gas canister that police fired have. footage of the wounded veteran and police brutality spread quickly the shock of it galvanizing the nation and the
8:14 pm
occupy movement across the country. google says the company received requests from local law enforcement agencies to remove you tube videos of police brutality they did not comply the stronger of course of the response five establishment the stronger the movement will get out of the larger the protests will become the protesters through these past six weeks of being careful not to taint the movement's reputation with violence by and large most reports suggest that this movement has been almost entirely peaceful but some in the us need. use the night of violence you know clinch to portray the protestors as radicals and more violence from the occupiers a lot of these people are professional educators a good number of these people are radicals no doubt about it you might ask how radical was this elderly woman in a wheelchair who was tear gassed by police or jasper father of two who's working on his ph d. at the university of california berkeley you know he characterized you know it's
8:15 pm
a big the. perspective of the nice man as the marginal and radical fringe in order to discredit it this moment really is about all americans it's not just about people that it's a story we've been well or this is about now it's true the middle class is starting to feel the impact of hope or greed that is when this country for so long as the movement grows bigger and more structured it's becoming harder to ignore the message of the campaigners who call themselves the ninety nine percent and protest against corporate crime and government complicity protesters hands mushrooms throughout the country there will be more the movement is only expanding several weeks ago police crackdown on protesters with pepper spray this week it was tear gas and stun grenades protesters now want to hit big business where it hurts a general strike next week demanding banks and corporations shut down for a day but will the police response be an even more brutal crackdown i'm going to

com. lead. to. a crucial deal on the eurozone debt crisis was agreed upon a thursday in e.u. efforts to save greece and avoid further economic collapse the banks are required to write off fifty percent of what athens owes them after european leaders decided to have greece's private sector debt to one hundred billion euros europe's bailout fund will be boosted to one trillion euros in order to protect a larger economies of the region johan van overtveldt who runs two of belgium's leading business magazines believes it's only a temporary solution. greece needs to be excluded from the euro zone. it's just buying time this is really not a good bazooka everybody has been asking for i would describe it as
8:19 pm
a rather peaceful this of course prevents for the moment that we really get to a kind of hallucinating escalation of the greek adept level which is now growing in the direction of hundred and eighty percent of g.d.p. but you cannot call this a structural resolution to the different greek problems they are a little bit afraid to really bite the bullet here because if you look at it closely there is only one solution for greece any truth have been put on the table already several months ago for greece to leave the euro zone but that is a decision everybody's afraid off and what has for example not been discussed now but which is very much on the mind of several of the european leaders is that there is a huge problem brewing in portugal because this country is going down to greet the greek road quite rapidly now so if the action today on greece one immediately has to put a similar kind of action in the operation with respect to go play other stories
