5:02 am
dealing with armed people we don't know whether the weapons reach syria from israel or any other state that possesses such weapons but there is evidence of nine's and grenades that were put in place is packed with civilians this led to casualties in a number of cases the information obtained during the latest in syria gratian of terrorists shows that of those arms smuggling to syria from neighboring states become pain was funded from abroad and we have a list of those who are responsible for this and we've seen months of unrest in syria what's being help resolve that and to help resolve the crisis. well before we look at ib actions being taken by the two sides it's important to see the positions they have taken because it's these positions they keep referring to when they justify the actions they take us far as the syrian president is concerned for the very start they claim that there are groups or external conspiracies fueling the violence in the countries and they blame those weapons being smuggled in through their borders arming those supposedly armed groups that are shooting on civilians
5:03 am
and this is why they say it's necessary to bring in the security forces to protect civilians of course it's a different story when you talk to the a protestors i myself i've been there at two weeks ago talking to some of those protesters who went out on the street and they are adamant that it is the security forces that are hurting them that they are largely by and large peaceful and of course looking at the live in scenario right now the calls for this no fly zone we've been seeing. videos of a been posing that they are calling for a no fly zone they've seen the result in libya but that is one part of the opposition it's important to note as well that the national coordination council wish i've spoken to as well in damascus today they're very critical of what the government is doing very doubtful of the reforms that the government is putting forth but they also are questioning the merits of a no fly so they would want to see any form of military intervention or any form of intervention in a country hoping that the situation will be resolved internally for example the n.c.c. had refused to participate in the multi-party system put forth by the government
5:04 am
saying that the tides and the troops must first be removed by the government but having said that they still don't want foreign intervention out as far as a protesters who are calling for that nato a no fly zone is concerned nato officials have said that the libyan scenario it's unlikely to work in syria first of all there's no international support at this point a broad one as well as a wider regional support but they are trying what all the all the sides are trying to do is try to bring the two opposing sides on to the negotiating table the arab league has also put forth applied to president assad according to. that they had put a two week deadline for assad to respond to these calls for talks and they're waiting hopefully today they said that they will get a response from president assad he said that he is willing to talk to opposition those who existed before the uprising as well as those who are because of the uprising now just because there's a lot of hesitation whether military or foreign intervention is worth it or there's merit to that that's not to say that there's all growing outside pressure again but
5:05 am
the call is for dialogue and the pressure is coming not just not just from the western countries but also from the two countries that had vetoed the u.n. resolution such as china and russia so again everyone calling for all this a result peacefully at least for now through dialogue all right are these talks are still alive from the foreign ministry in moscow thanks for that report. protesters from the occupy wall street movement face new challenges as unseasonably bad weather hits the u.s. east coast alongside a sweeping police crackdown that i'll be up against plummeting temperatures snow and strong winds argues marina portnoy has the latest from new york. hinderance intern acidy of new york city's occupy wall street activist was tested this weekend as a blast of usual winter weather moved through the b. apple a campground in zuccotti park was hit with snow heavy rains and winds blowing up to sixty miles per hour now hundreds of protesters braved the freezing temperatures

a former israeli soldiers been imprisoned for leaking secret military data we'll look at why this possible information is being ignored by investigators plus. we're still a long way from science fiction becoming science fact with human said single poem on the says that modest but we are allowed to dream in a few minutes we test the waters in a way out the odds that one day you know one of the many subtle on the red planet. but first here doing russian billionaires romana and boris berezovsky are taking their fight to a u.k. court there is also claims are over it's robbed him of billions of dollars something the chelsea football club owner deny it's he's expected to speak at a high court hearing monday archy's ivor bennett reports on what could be the most expensive lawsuit in the history. this will be the first time or manob remove it from mr a is the bodyguards are calling him opens his mouth in this hearing up

until now he's get the resolute silence in stark contrast to his rival mr b. . whose 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 for three point five billion pounds for breach of trust and breach of contract he says mr a intimidated him bullied 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 it's not so much what's inside the court that's caught the attention here it's the extravagant operators around these two men they show up to court and shiny my books the c.d.'s they're flanked by vast entourage is at least fifteen people each inside the court room 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

5:12 am
revealed in those documents conduct which raises serious questions about rule of law in a democratic system that pattern of behavior of violating orders by the supreme court because of the supreme court said that if that said you must try to arrest is part of a pattern of practice within the israeli system and it's something that's very disturbing because when the army does not obey 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 tells them to do. if you're looking for more in-depth stories and exclusive coverage archies got you covered a taste of what's on our in right now a click away at our turned on the radio rock you the emissions from fukushima nuclear plant to the five times greater than authorities claim that although i invite you back in ration zone could stay on inhabited for years to. resolve the

a long way from science fiction becoming science fact with human setting up home on the surface of mars even if we put a huge cost of a martian settlement to one side there is some serious hurdles to be overcome not least we have no idea if life existed there previously and if it is. whether whatever killed it off could be dangerous to us why should we even think about finding a new home. that's resources are finite therefore we will eventually have to either restrain population production growth risking losing both or we find foothold on the planet no matter how much it cost us with the retirement of nasa space shuttle the only way for people to get into space ability is the russian soyuz rocket currently with the science available our chances of a global relocation anytime soon are pretty much zero however took the way in central moscow the mars five hundred project is simulating the effects
