responsibility for the national security situation starting tuesday they're tasked with rebuilding and restoring order in a country flooded with weapons. the un has condemned violence in syria calling for an end to the civilian death toll more than three thousand have been killed after months of anti-government unarrest some protesters have been calling for a no fly zone over the country aerial support from nato it interview with a russian t.v. channel syrian president bashar al assad warned that any foreign intervention could engulf the whole region well thought that syria is no libya it's unique in terms of geography politics and history outside interference could come it's a great cost to all involved if you're small states and your opponent is big and powerful it's natural for you to want to defend your homeland it's a country where you could say. plates could exist and any attempt to break the stability could cause a strong earthquake it could damage the whole region and country situation from
syria and if that happens in the middle east you could have a global impact today we have hundreds of soldiers police and security forces among the dead how they killed during peaceful demonstrations all because of some slow goods being shouted out no they were shocked and this means we're dealing with people the information obtained during the latest interrogation of terrorists shows that there was arms smuggling to syria from neighboring states a campaign that's funded from abroad and we have a list of those who are responsible for this. commuting russian billionaires are in boris berezovsky are taking their battle to a u.k. court their results he claims are always robbed him of billions of dollars something the chelsea football club owner tonight is expected to speak at a high court hearing monday artie's i have a better reports on what promises to be the most expensive raw suit in history. this will be the first time around and remove it from mr a is the body guards are calling him opens his mouth in this hearing up until now he's kept the resolute
silence in stark contrast to his rival used to be. his appearances in the witness box have been loud brash and passionate after all there's a lot at stake here he's suing me say the three point five billion pounds a breach of trust and breach of contract he says needs to intimidated him to lead him into selling his shares in sydney the oil company for a fraction of their true value the hearings trying to establish the finer details of those deals that went on but it appears none of that was actually put into writing after all it was ninety's russia is not so much what's inside the court has caught the attention here is the extravagant operators around these two men they show up to court in sunny my bark's the sadie's there flanked by vast entourage is at least fifteen people each inside the courtroom which is massive it's divided into two warring factions each man is represented by three rows of lawyers legal aides translators bodyguards each behind
a computer screen outside the court room in a free corner is a big burly man with dark glasses an ear piece these are two of the world's richest men although the rumor is that he's part is dwindling but to give you an idea of just how much money these men have for mr hayes legal fees but to be in the region of between four and eight million pounds during to the middle east garza's reeling from a variety of israeli airstrikes that left at least ten dead your tax the worst in many months prompted palestinians to announce a cease fire israeli prime minister denies a truce was in place and says the strikes were in response to gaza aggression those are his policy reports the latest escalation in violence could play into the hands of israel. one of the concerns people have is that among the hundreds of palestinian prisoners who are still in israeli jails and we 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 and that it will be almost a convenient excuse for these rabies 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 see that this is something that has happened in the past and it is the government's way of detracting attention away from domestic problems and so if you look at the international media coverage the international media was much more focused on 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 spent
so much on the hour on the defense budget the cuts they have to be made so that more money can be sustained 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 had it tracks attention away from what people here say is the ongoing situation where they have very real demands that are more often than not overshadowed by the excuse of security concerns. if you're looking for more in-depth stories then exclusive coverage r.t. has you covered here's a taste of what's a click away at r.t. dot com. radioactive emissions from fukushima has crippled nuclear plant maybe five times greater than authorities claim find out online why the evacuation zone could stay uninhabited for the year. after the failure of its predecessor russia's progress spaceship successfully blasts off with the i assessed check out the footage on r.t.
