on our team today grown wider in egypt troubled election violence swells of a bad religious candidate with the ruling military said in the being the only ones to benefit. hillary clinton pitches for china's support on north korea and iran for the u.s. military's asia pacific buildup and support for chinese dissidents leave beijing where. nato failed to move forward on the bureau missile defense dialogue with russia as moscow says it reserves the right to strike back if the system breaches its security.
there live from moscow it's now six pm you're watching kevin now in our top story two of egypt's leading presidential candidates is suspending their campaigning 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 by unknown attack is sparking further clashes now that rally was supporting a disqualified all true conservative islamist condit who was seen as one of the front runners before he was banned various political forces accuse the ruling military of trading the bloodshed party sarah firth looks into the chaos religious tensions have created in post-revolutionary. taking phone in middle east and. this is the leading comic actor. and his satirical film the leader is just one of a number in which he stirs the flanders him in prison for offending islam is
a ruling at the same region with the public but this revolution. was a gathering now it's a case of i got really mad at the other like the process was that it was this i was bad i don't have the right to god take. a breath right that freedom of expression. such convictions accosting a cloud a very artistic plans actions which the great and the good as the arab movie industry a quick to condemn after being banned the years and in the barracks hardline parties like the muslim brotherhood and the newly created salafi nor party have gained serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament i'm thinking of the people here in egypt. has. to. watch is what will that new egypt look like for
groups like al know it means imposing much strict muslim codes who have no problem with. this system so who have our culture how does our culture. and out of a club and. as we. saw. i think it's a system of laws has to come from this culture and this culture means. many of these pushing for implementing shari'a law in egypt and me publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already signs that change is 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 no matter how
subtle the differences may be at the moment egypt's eric cheek restraint in meeting its each and the results of what happens right now keep the felts for generations syria third party kyra a. military council condemned wednesday's attacks in a news conference and reaffirmed his willingness to step down after the presidential election but political activists are good believes the latest violence is actually the general's latest attempt to destabilize egypt with moves that have roots back of 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've been 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 big trying to drive muslim brotherhood into the square they can declare martial law 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 the following mubarak's steps big zach lee and that's why they've managed to unify everyone again all the liberals and the brotherhood and these everyone is in the same trench right now against the military council. well the other side of the mediterranean meantime spain is gearing up for its own austerity fuel protests thousands of police lining basle over the street have expected mass demos there is european central bank causing side of you even
a close up with the report coming up. also triggered tremors even poisoned water supplies but british leaders insist they will plough on nonetheless with a controversial method to extract on the ground gas despite the cost to residents look at these pictures from america. america's chief diplomat is urging china to help rein in tensions over iran and north korea's nuclear activities hillary clinton is in beijing right now and said both the u.s. and china should work together to restrain pyongyang from further provocation and to prevent iran from developing a nuclear weapon clinton's visit comes an extremely delicate time in their relations to beijing's accusing the u.s. of meddling in its seem turn of affairs after the u.s. embassy briefly sheltered a chinese dissident activist it also is irritated over washington's military build major pacific something that chinese experts say is a destructive break from. the u.s.
strategy is really trying to encircle china from ordering from japan to. 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 they're used to smaller countries here to challenge china so here strategy is to give enough backing to do labor in countries to keep china occupied so a dead child there would not have. to do with other geopolitical phoenix. joe nice bit to sort of his own institute in china to study social and economic development he first sees a new kind of cold war on the horizon now we've got a full interview coming out with him in twenty five minutes but here's a quick taste. we've heard
a lot of talk about multi polar world but last century it was over us this to be very simple minded about this is the us and china that bipolar world is going to be dominated by a bipolar connection of china and the us 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 the there will be a bipolar world replacing. the u.s. but very different bases so no more no i guess a cold war but it's sort of a cold war but with the soviet union on a largely a logical basis with china economic. russia was it could launch a preemptive strike against the nato led defense shield plan for europe if
divisions between them over the project reach a critical point the country's military chiefs have been voicing their concerns that an international conference on missile defense here in moscow as a tease in this and now explain next. well missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now that's 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 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 indeed how 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 i'll be ready to compromise after the election and of course it's an election year in a lot of countries across the globe in twenty twelve and officials certainly understand
that but so what we're going to hear most likely as this two day summit wraps up is baby steps we're ready for dialogue but how far both sides are willing to comp. from my eyes is still very unclear that is the big question we'll talk more on the russia and america dialogue about missile defenses the paris based political analyst john laughlin joining us now from paris john hi there nato says the missile shield poses no threat to russia because moscow's intercontinental ballistic missiles are quote too fast and too sophisticated for this planned system to intercept it's not convincing moscow though is it does it convince you. it doesn't convince me no and i find it pretty rich actually that the american should be saying this about their missile systems when they refuse to listen to the iranians who say that their civil civilian nuclear program is no threat whatsoever to anybody threats are a matter of perception but also
a reality and the fact is that as far as we know iran has no nuclear. weapons capability and doesn't plan one while the americans are planning a missile shield which although it may not they may be telling the truth when they say it's not directed against russia the fact is it's a new weapon system and it can be presumably directed against what is russia in a matter of seconds so no it does its thing comment earlier on from a french defense official saying that iran's nuclear program poses a quote risk rather than a threat to europe security what does it mean by that it is there a point therefore of adding the shield is just a risk well i don't really know what the official means and in any case i don't personally. share that analysis i don't think that iran is going to attack a european country still less the united states of america seems to me to be an
absolute fantasy it's not my view and in any case well my part of my answer is that one of the reasons why i think that it won't do that. is that the cost in terms of retaliation of such an attack were it to happen are obviously immense so iran would have to be mad to launch such an attack and that's why i find the whole discussion about the missile shield in the iranian head tickle attack completely fantastic russia's been trying to talk reason here for a long time now are the latest words today that certainly ramping up the rhetoric if you like russia's saying it could make a preemptive strike if quote very importantly the situation worsened worsens and reaches a critical point what is that critical point well the critical point would be if there was some kind of conflict looming between the united states and russia and if there were some prospect of the missiles being fired at europe or across europe to
america we're obviously a very long way away from that at least i hope we are the reason why the russian. minister made this remark for the russian defense official made this remark is to show the logical conclusion of what the americans are doing the americans are planning to install a new military hardware x. on the continent of europe a constant which has struggled now for twenty years to reach it self of the inheritance of the cold war and the logical military implication of that act is that at some point a strike might have to be contemplated and will those words from russia today make any difference to think the u.s. will take russia's ultimatum seriously given of course that any preemptive strike would be far away i guess the american soil. well the fact that it's far away from american soil doesn't really make any difference because it's an american system and the americans are trying to obviously extend their influence either through our
directly or through nato over the whole of the european continent and another consequence as well so the fact that any such attack wouldn't actually it america is a no. no consequence at all with the americans be bothered by the ultimatum and i think they should be as i say i don't think we are looking at a military conflict at anytime soon but i think they have to understand that this missile defense system is very serious they may say it doesn't affect russia or isn't intended against russia but like any weapon system frankly like a knife it can be it depends on who is holding it and under no circumstance and or moment really really briefly if at the moment anyway the u.s. still won't give legal guarantees that they feel will bridge russia's national security what is the way forward do you think to to break this defense stalemate. the way forward is either thought the americans to integrate russia into the unified command of the defense system of the missile shield or about

keeping a close eye on barcelona the saffron protesters there are gathering as european central bank chiefs meet and security precautions have been heavily ramped up because of it spain even going so far as to reinstate checkpoints along its border with france in a bid to limit the number of possible demonstrators arriving from within europe now the meeting is expected to run parallel to a massive and potentially violent protest to thousands of riot police have been deployed there with reinforcements on standby the latest pictures these c.b. chiefs themselves are expected to resist calls to begin buying up spanish bonds as investors abandon the country's debt auctions all this is spain the course reels from those disastrous unemployment figures up twenty five percent a million strong austerity demonstrations but we've got comment from economist yanis varoufakis who says he sees glaring double standards. while they seem

but extort. the afternoon comes from deep beneath the rolling english countryside where there lies pockets of gas suitable for energy trouble is getting it can be destructive and toxic to those living above the process of fracking is banned indeed in some countries but rather less the british government intends to drill away anyway irrespective of public fears all the environmental consequences i deserve a better reports. it triggers earthquakes and could poison water supplies but fracking suggests got the green light in the u.k. a government study says the controversial gas extraction technique fees despite causing two tremors in the popular coastal resort of blackpool last year environmentalist's fear a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly pollution what it fails to address is the question from citi you know this issues

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 to 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 densely populated. se the fear is the toxic cocktail left by fracking will pollute supplies only a quarter of the carcinogenic chemicals pumped in 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 cold local campaign is far from convinced we really need
