government website with a twitter message saying it was a protest against the pony and surveillance proposals. and activists take action a t.v. presenter ingres respond with yogurt and live in air by a group of masked protesters who broke into the studio. after is less than forty eight hours left for the syrian government to comply with the un back peace plan it calls on the baskets to withdraw troops and tanks from residential areas seizing all military activity but syrian activist and even the head of the u.n. say the regime continues its crackdown on dissent massacres blames ongoing violence on terrorists funded and armed from abroad more than a hundred people were reportedly killed just on saturday the rebel fighters are refusing to cease fire until president assad steps down and they've been promised multimillion dollar support from the u.s. and its allies sarah ferguson now reports. talks of ending the violence on the inside the friends
a syria conference. outside day and take place for getting heavy handed they dispersed a tiny prost syrian government gathering so you find a crowd at the moment pushing them back up the street with their actions only seem to see the. rowdy crowds oh oh. we want just to have the gun and good and so. move forth. the conference continued throughout the afternoon and they say talk is cheap for friends to syria have pledged millions of dollars for the free syrian army effectively placing the rebels on a thorn payroll however even this didn't go as far as the opposition group the syrian national council and some of their friends to syria had hate for with. the
free syrian army becoming stronger hayes country turkey is now home to twenty thousand displaced syrians refugee camps near the border see a continual flow of new arrivals and these we mess nearly all have tales of war. planes to support. we had to skip over the border the violence got through. negotiations they tell us what worked the opposition will not back down from this fight nor they feel we'll let it into fat despite the syrian government along with the international community having signed up to the un envoy to syria k.p.n. and peace plan at the friends of syria conference the parties have already decided who is the legitimate representative of the syrians france or syria soon people support the mission called an int declared by shooting nation council we see syrian issue council illegitimately present a few for all syrians the seemingly one sided approach is
a part of the reason why russia and china has dismissed. concerns that excluding the assad government from talks undermines diplomatic efforts to end the violence if they want to help syria the to engage the syrian government in diplomatic talks on neutral ground it's quite quite clear and present assad is not going to. be. except the. plan as the western countries are still giving aid to the opposition at the meeting though in the message to president assad with clear comes to the implementation of the peace plan time is running out. now some observers say the rallies are reluctant to give up the fight because they have so much international backing based research things are. pouring syria to civil war. they getting so many singers. so many
forces from the outside are on their side why would they have an interest to to to make a compromise with the government everyone is blaming the government for the violence they will increase silence and grow counter actions in order to cause foreign intervention what happens in afghanistan after u.s. intervention in iraq we saw a lot happen to libya state that is falling apart now. if. syria. of so-called free syrian army will actually succeed to take over then we. will most likely face. very serious series of or in syria with all these different factions fighting each other like muslim brotherhood extremists representatives of certain minorities. so i have read this our choosing sovereignty over sympathy we have to be it's hot in this province of south or all were that people are keen
to keep their cash instead of losing it to a all the rest of italy our debt. in egypt presidential hopefuls are racing to round up enough support to have the first round of the vote next month sunday's the deadline for nominations with several candidates hoping to fill the shoes of hosni mubarak who was ousted more than a year ago arches renegotiate is in cairo it was more. it is true that the military is still rather powerful and it is also true that among the candidates for the upcoming presidential elections you can see some of the names which were very familiar during the mubarak era for example his former prime minister is a running for the presidential seat as is the head of his intelligence that was one of the most recent surprise nominations after especially after it came three days after him are silly man that is the lance name after he stated that he is not going to run of course he changed his mind a little bit later on now you cannot forget that there is also
a very strong islamist presence and that is probably the strongest strongest party that is or the strongest parties which are presenting their candidates for the presidential polls of course the muslim brotherhood which initially from the get go right after the revolution said that they are not going to to put forth a candidate for the presidential elections and of course to get later they made waves by putting forth one an extremely wealthy businessman known for his brother rather radical views but then apparently they're having doubts of whether or not he's going to gain support the put forth a second term to that so you have two candidates from the muslim brotherhood you have several of the more liberal sort of let's try to bring a left left wing politicians who are also of course in the race but they are not as proud of their supporters are not as rowdy as those for example as for the islamists one of the candidates from the saudi party already said he wants to make
. you know for example drinking alcohol absolutely illegal even for tourists that he wants to ban swimsuits from being worn on egyptian beaches and he also wants to segregate our women from men when it comes to education and to lower the age of consent to about twelve years of age so when they're not washington or any other western country sids. islamist radical islamists as are threats of presidents to also after all that's. more important from cairo out to ghost it's an international standing of muslim brotherhood sandie first official delegation to washington this week after decades of mutual distrust alice franks says america should think twice before turning out was undemocratic arab forces the white house you know we would hope that they're looking at the best case scenario but they need to be a little bit more cautious about the worst case scenario and that includes arming
rebels in syria the arming of and aiding of rebels in libya when in fact we knew that they had ties to radical islamist groups and especially and specifically al qaeda when you're talking about trying to divide the islamic world in the arab world it's a very hard thing to do. you won't see ready allies for the west especially in some of the. i'm going to use them for lack of a better word regimes that have taken over and some of these countries that have experienced the arab spring they're not friendly to to western culture or western ideals although they might like the financial backing that would come you see a lot of these factions leaning towards the installation of sharia law is something that is paramount in their constitutions so to try and ally with someone who is putting shari'a law in place especially when it's so antithetical to our u.s.
constitution. corneas twirling in the air on the. moscow is vowing to use all legal means to bring that their book back home after the russian businessman was sentenced by u.s. court he was found guilty of conspiring to kill americans but maintains his innocence the judge gave him a minimum term twenty five years stressing there would be no evidence of crime had not been for the american sting operation that set up his arrest i just need to see it has more. years spent by the u.s. to hunt down one russian man tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer cash were it into a sting operation snatched out from a third country alleged arms dealer viktor boot was handcuffed flown to do you wes and placed in solitary confinement for months before trial found him guilty on all four charges one conspiring to kill united states nationals two conspiring to kill united states officers and employees three conspiring to use an acquire
anti-aircraft missiles and for conspiring to provide material support to the park the forty four year old russian air cargo business and fascinated hollywood going to our every. request. and only on the other a boot lost his case in the court of u.s. public opinion one before his trial kicked off raising concerns of the fairness of his trial this is the lord of war. the merchant of death right and you've got him in your hands spread he's in custody it's a great feeling u.s. officials were relentless in their efforts to get behind bars so-called merchant of death is now a federal inmate american agents posing as far members a colombian group to terrorists in the u.s. but not by many other countries and the u.n. met with and then arrested in thailand in two thousand and eight after twice being found not guilty by thai courts the u.s.
reportedly plea dirty arm twisting thailand into extraditing him to america they're willing to flaunt every international law to get what they want and that means doing all these illegal things in the case of their to move to extradite him or should say kidnap of good family also called us actions entrapment and kidnapping i could accept the possibility that might have some information that might be of interest to someone but why is it that other countries don't just think to themselves but there is someone who has some interest in information and why don't those governments just drive based people into their territory moscow's request to send him to russia for trial were brushed aside and it was no official decision of an extradition russia called boot extradition illegal and question the validity of his conviction one of the main arguments of the defense that the u.s. lacked jurisdiction was ignored by the court woods defense says the russian was aware that he was not in touch with real fark members and all he was trying to do was sell to all cargo planes we use the magic crimes when in fact interest in and
manufactured evidence could always george matt has attended every hearing in the case he says is one of many victims of u.s. judicial power play i feel that victor and is unable to take the charges that were brought against him that he is innocent so you know i don't i don't want any innocent man whether it be a russian citizen record who are truly davis to be you know centers right or chemical crime to commit it to good is the second. since it isn't any year to face sentencing on american territory for little crimes committed in a third nation both cases set major precedence and represents a worry that the west tried to simply override the legal systems of other countries especially target of arts in. washington used to lead a republican trap and think that that's according to american lawyer. the us government takes a very aggressive approach extraterritorial like if someone is in london wire
transfers a sum of money to an individual and early on and on but i'm sure that they own the money kings through citibank in new york that paying that touching of u.s. jurisdiction is sufficient jurisdiction for the united states government and the charge both of those individuals with money laundering both facing extradition proceedings if they both lose they're looking at up to twenty years in parole twenty years without parole i was just facing a federal judge in manhattan u.s. government decided they wanted him to say or able to food or manufacture in my view jurisdiction not illegally a form of in private much where they were able to pull mr boot into the jurisdiction of the u.s. courts they placed him in you know in extradition proceedings by way of. thailand had an extra dieted to the united states. however in bahrain on violent demonstrations against the government rage on the words weighing in with force
several protesters were injured on saturday when police fired tear gas and rubber bullets thousands railing on friday were also met with a crackdown they marched in support of a human rights champion who is serving a life sentence for speaking out against the bahraini government has been on hunger strike for two months vowing to achieve freedom or yes there is a slant for rights violations by international watchdogs like the u.s. continues to rein in six. middle east experts in your risk says the case for help expose the truth these hunger strikes i think they do contribute there you do what you have their goal because what they do is they reveal the real tactics which are being pursued by the regime in order to clamp down on the protests as. more and more such acts i think call for that expose the truth of nature or the truth leaks which the regime is using and what they are that the. more pressure on certain
western countries also the european powers in order to change their stance because of the visit to the regime the focus is all on syria and what's going on in syria who are setting aside but we all know that the fifth fleet in bahrain does exist we also know what i think this is the main issue here that but framing is a very close ally of saudi arabia and saudi arabia hence is one of the allies have been us so when we speak about the blackout being put on the train i think first and foremost that this is a saudi arabian wish it was a saudi arabians also a fear that there might be a domino effect which could happen in the persian gulf beginning from. there spreading to saudi arabia the international community is still focused somewhere else that i think that all contributes to the anger which we witnessing the popular anger which in the end i believe will achieve the goals. around two thousand mourners at hand at the funeral of demetrius crystal was an elderly man who shot
himself in front of the parliament building in athens earlier this week the seventy seven year old left a suicide note in which he accused the government destroying his pension with a sturdy cuts his suicide rekindled and hysterically measureless progress was violence erupting when hundreds of demonstrators gathered and syntagma square to pay their respects for sas terrorists started throwing petrol bombs at police who responded with tear gas depression and since i braids have been on the rise a country which has been forced to impose public spending cuts to deal with its mouth and that financial analyst patrick young says greece needs to take urgent action to get out of its dire situation. the greek government is bankrupt the greek government cannot afford to stay in the euro and pay its debts it must default ultimately that may be a terrible problem for a great many financier's and investors but at the same time i have to say any bank that bought greek there in the course of the last ten years was stupid so making
that absolutely clear the simple fact is greece must have thought on it it probably needs to leave your room egypt lee it most deeply it its currency it is going to still have many problems but the truth of the matter is that when you do get to this sort of extreme only this sort of extreme measure is going to be possible to resolve your situation and ultimately it really beggars belief that we have a greek politician the most highly paid politicians in the whole of the european union turning round and going oh well that's very sad one of our constituents killed themselves when they themselves make fifteen five thousand euros per month without any difficulty whatsoever as a backbencher m.p. which isn't enough to manage to pay for dozens of pensioners every month a new austerity greece. now take
