gates four pm thursday afternoon here in moscow review watching around the world welcome to see this my name's kevin know in our top story two of egypt's leading presidential candidates are suspending their campaign they blame the ruling military council for wednesday's brutal attack on protesters up to twenty people were killed and more than one hundred injured while known attack is sparking further clashes the rally was supporting a disqualified ultra conservative islamist candidate is seen as one of the front one as before he was banned various political forces accuse the ruling military of orchestrating the bloodshed syria first looks into the chaos religious tensions and created a postscript. taking phone in middle eastern. this is the leading cleric and the man and his film the leader is just one of a number in which he says if you learn this in imprisoned offending islam. it's
a ruling in the same region with the public but this revolution. was a gathering that ignites a case of i got really mad about the rights of the process. and if i go right back i don't think the rest of the country and everywhere else right that freedom of expression and. such convictions accosting a cloud a very artistic plans and actions which the great in the goods of the arab media industry a quick to condemn after being banned for years until a very hard line parties like the muslim brotherhood and the newly created. look i think have gained serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament i think as a people here in egypt. has hope. to be the new egypt. which is what will that new egypt look like for groups like oh
no it means imposing much strict muslim kinds have no problem with. this system so who have our culture out of this our culture of complaint from and out of a club and. as we live in egypt so. i think the system and the laws have to come from this culture and this culture means. many of these implementing shari'a law in egypt at least publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already sowing stick changes taking place a lot of people who are currently governmental candidates for president are being very cautious about the statements that they make with the growth of policy everyone is preaching moderate islamists but the same time there's an undercurrent like for instance we're going to change that in them slightly we're not going to make schools but we're going to preach religion better at schools they matter how
subtle that difference is maybe at the moment egypt's ethnic cheek restraint in letting it each and there is still this is what happens right now keep the ferals for generations. kyra. the military council condemned whens those attacks in the news conference and reaffirmed its willingness to step down after the presidential election but political activist after but not gay believes the latest violence is actually the general's latest attempt to destabilize egypt with moves that have roots back in the revolution. they've been definitely there since day one of the revolution but this is what the military council kept calling or deferring to the third party the party have been part of the militias the national democratic party and the state security apparatus past twenty years those are all of them very intense criminal records and they're being used instead. of.
militias all the army itself so they're doing the dirty work for the military council they've tried already that in november and december during the parliamentary elections but it failed they trying to drive the muslim brotherhood into to see if they can marshal and say that the muslim brotherhood is a violent violent group but they failed to do that now they're trying to do the same thing and every single time against they've obviously not learned the lessons of a following mubarak's steps exactly and that's why they've managed to unify everyone again all the liberals and the brotherhood and everyone is in the same trench right now against the military council. and on the other side of the mediterranean spain gears up for its own austerity fuel protest police running past alona streets ahead of expected mass demos that as european central bank bosses decide on the euro's

india three quarters of the u.s. is calling china an expression in south china sea there you have a military exercise somewhere for philippines. so that these two smaller countries can dare to challenge china so here strategy is to give enough backing neighboring countries to keep china occupied so a dead child there would not have. to do with the geopolitical feelings john nice but who said it was only institute in china to study social economic development is the first sees a new kind of cold war on the rise and here's a little bit of what we said here in full in twenty five minutes. we've heard a lot of talk about polar world but last century it was and so are you to us this tree to be very simple minded about it this is the u.s.
and china. bipolar world it's going to be dominated by the bipolar connection of china and the u.s. and people will make countries will make decisions to calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the u.s. and or china that there will be a bipolar world placing the soviet union the u.s. but very different bases so no. or yes a cold war but it's sort of a cold war with the soviet union on an ideological basis with china on the economic.
news today. and fled. these are the images that are seeing from the streets of canada. sigrid laboratory kirby was able to build the most sophisticated robot which on fortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tombs mission to teach creation why it should care about humans in the world this is why you should care only dot com. live from moscow this is our. russia warns it could launch a preemptive strike against the nato led defense shield planned for europe if
divisions between them reach over the project reach a critical point now the country's military chiefs have been voicing their concerns at an international conference on military defense here in moscow are here this is now a follow the event for us. well missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now but certainly no secret between the u.s. russia and nato and once again russian officials today reiterated the sentiment that bad deadlock needs to end or else russia is going to take response of action we've heard the phrase preemptive strike this is pretty harsh rhetoric we're hearing from russia they're very serious about their their concerns their national security concerns being taken into consideration by nato and the u.s. we also heard from officials that if some kind of compromise isn't made that they're warning of in fact another arms race so very strong words coming from russia what they're hoping to come out of this two day summit is first of all to
prove that these so-called rogue states like iran and south korea which the u.s. and nato say this missile defense system which is well underway in eastern europe in poland romania even as far as turkey that russia has research and is giving basically officials details on why they believe those two countries certainly don't have the missile capabilities to reach europe so a lot of questions surrounding the goals behind this defense system so close to russia's border and also showing a computer model of why exactly this missile system poses a threat to russia's national security in detail this is something moscow has been trying to convince the two of us through dialogue for years now washington continues to stress that the system is not against russia like i said that it's against iran and north korea but russia just isn't convinced oh let's not forget that hot mike that we heard in south korea where obama told medvedev hang in there all he's ready to compromise after the election of course it's an election year in
a lot of houses because the cold in twenty thousand missiles really understand not so simple if you most likely as this two day summit wraps up his baby steps were ready for dialogue but how far both sides are willing to compromise is still very unclear. political analyst with the moral of told us that russia is capable of countering nato as missile shield is dangerous to send the situation to boiling point in this threats to europe i very much exaggerate missile threats. of those countries which americans and europeans claim develop long range missiles it is just not credible europe should not feel vulnerable and the issue is the trash. instead of fewer feels vulnerable russia will defend itself russia is capable of defending itself. but we
need to find the narrow window the closing window but still existing window of opportunity for corporative project with cool europe illegally binding assurances on the us. but the format whether it should be agreement treaty or what kind of of those assurances this is an open question. we invite you to head online to our web site r t the car where right now we're literally bringing you the wildest views to take a look for this shocking shot thrill seekers in russia's far a show their head for heights for these dizzying pictures posted online although of course the local police now their health and safety officers as well not too thrilled about that great pictures though. also the r.t. the hunting fox the phone hacking scandal plaguing rupert murdoch's news corp sees high level calls for many of his american t.v.

a comment from economist yanis varoufakis he says that he sees glaring double standards here. while the c b i spent over the last few months one trillion euros financing bankrupt banks. because through the pumps and. it is excusing to to come. this is all states like spain like portugal like ireland like greece and to come to their assistance the european union as a whole requires misanthropy conditions to be imposed upon the populations of those countries so you have to completely different attitudes by the monetary authorities of europe one is towards the bank a bank is where essential in forging this crisis and they are being treated with love. and then you have the way the states like spain are being treated europe does
not have the different should be there in order to avert the kind of gets kade of insolvencies of states that we have been experiencing over the last couple years and just letting you know coming up at nineteen thirty g.m.t. max kaiser and stacey have been here to take on those they blame for been behind the global financial chaos. timothy geithner you can't legislate away stupidity and risk taking and greed it was just an accident i think that the global financial markets collapsed i don't see any crime here. has selective amnesia and he's purposefully blind to the crime in front of him he can't hear anybody out there committing crimes you can't see anybody even though it's presented the evidence every single day criminality no. ambiguity about it.
deep beneath the rolling english countryside like pockets of gas suitable for energy the trouble is that getting it can be destructive and toxic to those living above the process of fracking is banned in some countries but the british government intends to drill anyway a respected of public fears all the environmental consequences of a bennett. it triggers earthquakes and could poison water supplies but fracking just got the green light in the u.k. a government study says the controversial gas extraction technique is safe despite causing two tremors in the popular coastal resort of blackpool last year environmentalist sphere a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly
pollution but it fails to address is the question from citi you know these issues are actually a new very small fraction of the other associated problems with fracking so the report doesn't really do justice to any other aspect so ultimately of department of energy climate change regulating this hydraulic fracturing or fracking extracts methane gas from underground millions of gallons of water and chemicals including hydrochloric acid pumped into a three kilometer deep well that high pressure when the rock cracks gas escapes but so too can deadly toxins and radiation previously locked in the ground this side just sixty kilometers south of london is one of many the government intends to drill and the people who live here have had no say permission is already been given for fracking to start here and that's the hole that will be pumped with water at one thousand meters it's not shallower than most of the fracking sites which means
the risks of tremors a much higher but so too the chances of toxic chemicals seeping into the water supply and that's the worry for residents who live nearby the fact that fracking could take place four miles from my home makes me feel very angry very disillusioned very disappointed in our legislators things absolutely exasperated that they can even countenance sanctioning because it is an eco sidle technology it's short term it's short sighted halfway between the capital and the coast bulk i'm surrounded by a network of reservoirs that provide water to much of england's densely populated south. feest the fear is the toxic cocktail left by fracking will pollute supplies only a quarter of the carcinogenic chemicals pumped in and actually come out again fracking has already begun america these online videos show what happens if the well casing splits taps flaming after gas leaked into the water system but britain insists it's
a cleaner alternative to coal local campaign is far from convinced we really need to be looking at how we're going to move away from fossil fuels and what's happening is that the government is diverting its attention and its resources towards. energy such as nuclear fracking don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce. the impact fracking is banned in france and bold garia because of public outrage but in the current corners of england's countryside people's fears are no match for the energy giants either bennett r.-t. sussex. more weather story online sort of following a lot of late news in brief now an apparent protest against president assad in syria is a local universities killed at least. hundreds of arrested coups the latest pictures and verified video you seeing here showing the troops raiding the campus firing at demonstrators while students armed with knives also attacked
