a ruling that's in reaching the public face right lisa let me put it exactly right so that was the guy didn't think that case if i got really mad about it like that the process i don't know if it was undemocratic if i did write that it wasn't for the rest of the country and the thank you very very price for their freedom of expression and. such convictions accosting a cloud a very artistic plans actions which the great in the good as the arab media industry a quick to condemn after being banned for years until mubarak hardline parties like the muslim brotherhood and the newly created new party have gained serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament and people here in egypt. has hope who to. choose will. will that new egypt look like the greeks like i will it means imposing
11:03 am
much stricter missile includes you have no problem with. this system so we have our culture out of this our culture of content from and out of a club and. society as we live in egypt so. i think that system. has to come from this culture and this culture means. many of these fishing for implementing shari'a law in egypt let me publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already sewing 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 go to policy everyone is preaching moderate islamists but the same time there's an undercurrent like for instance we're going to change that equation curriculums likely we're not going to make schools but we're going to preach religion better at schools settle their

differences maybe at the moment egypt's ethnic sheik restraint in letting it each and the results of what happens right now keep the ferals for generations serious third party. on the other side of the mediterranean spain spares no expense to keep protests there in check as we report soon fallacies of some secret police keeping guard over a european central bank meeting in barcelona in the border checks of back to the hold up would be got the latest on that developing story this afternoon also it can trigger tremors and even poison water supplies but british leaders insist they regard the controversial method to extract underground gas and despite the cost to residents here what some of them have to say a bit later in the program. but next america's chief diplomat is urging china to help rein in tensions over iran and north korea's nuclear activities hillary
11:05 am
clinton is in beijing right now in fact and said both the u.s. and china should work together to restrain pyongyang from further provocation and prevent iran from developing a nuclear weapon clinton's visit comes at an extremely delicate time in their relations beijing is accusing the u.s. of meddling in its internal affairs the u.s. and. briefly sheltered a chinese dissident activist is also irritated too over washington's military. system something chinese experts say is a bit distracting beijing it's a policy in the region. the u.s. strategy is really try to encircle china from all the way from japan to philippines where now india three quarters of the u.s. is calling china and expression in is south china sea there you have a military exercise somewhere for philippines and vietnam so that these two smaller
11:06 am
countries can dare to challenge china's so here strategy is to give enough backing to distant neighboring countries to keep china occupied so a dead child never would not have tired to deal with other geopolitical things more common join a spit set up his own institute in china to study social economic developments that he for sees a new card a cold war on the horizon here's some of what we'll hear in full from next hour. we've heard a lot of talk about malta over world but last century it was it's over us. to be very simple minded about this is the u.s. and china the. world is going to be dominated by a bi polar. china and the us and people countries will. calibrate their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the us
11:07 am
and or china that there will be a bipolar world replacing. us but very different bases so no dollar for guests a cold war but sort of a cold war with the soviet union on a larger logical basis. russia warns 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 concern at an international conference about missile defense here in moscow as artie's missile now now explains. 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
11:08 am
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
11:09 am
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 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 matt 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. it's still very unclear what is innocent now a nato says the missile shield poses no threat to russia because moscow's internat intercontinental ballistic missiles are quote too fast and too sophisticated for the planned system to intercept but paris space political analyst john laughlin
11:10 am
told me it's not convincing enough to say that but i find it pretty rich actually that the american should be saying this about their missile system when they refuse to listen to the iranians who say that their civil civilian nuclear program poses no threat whatsoever to anybody birthrates 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 be 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 russia in a matter of seconds. we invite you to head online to r.t. dot com where right now we're literally bringing you the widest views take
11:11 am
a look at this for some shocking shots of please do not try this thrill seekers in russia's far east show their head for heights with these dizzying pictures posted on the local police weren't too thrilled of course we stressed again do not try to sell good pictures though. from our plus hunting for the phone hacking scandal plaguing rupert murdoch's news corp sees a high level calls for many of his american t.v. broadcasting licenses to be pulled. and a parent protest against president assad of syria's aleppo university bloody end today leaving four dead and two hundred arrested and verified video from the clashes show troops and students together at tackling the demonstrators let's talk about this
11:12 am
with shelby's a senior columnist at the newspaper in neighboring lebanon mr shelby thanks for taking the time to be with us only yesterday of course syrian rebels attacked and killed more than a dozen government troops in aleppo is what we saw then what we're seeing today related. well we're not sure i could tell you that it's very difficult to get accurate information from from syria at this time the situation is very chaotic and the tension is rising and this comes as a as a shock because with the with the presence of the monitors according to the kofi annan plan the violence had decreased a bit and there have been. a setback in the in the level of tension however today detention is rising again there have been some clashes as we can see. in the images that you're showing and the students in a local university when it took to the streets and there were some violent clashes
11:13 am
now it's not very clear who is who started the violence who actually used weapons who shot at them who they were they armed some of them or so are they were not this would require more a closer look by independent journalists and by independent monitors and that's not that's not their monitors are you know there are only thirty one monitors today in syria from the united nations and that's not sufficient and i don't think they were there in and out at the time when this these clashes this violent clashes period of arrests continue now there were some arrests also today in syria and on the other hand there were some people who gave themselves to do your story it is there were reports about that there were reports from officially parts of syria that one thirty one one hundred thirty three gunmen had given up their weapons and handed them over to the authorities however there is no confirmation of this information the monitors were in homs today the city that actually went through severe clashes
11:14 am
in the past week the monitors took notes and they actually went all over the city and asking people about what what is actually happening there there is a big hope coffee an unplanned despite what happened today can continue because it's the last. it's perceived by many as the last. four. years i'm sort of out in the other so what is the bigger picture what you know where are we here at the moment now the u.n. observer mission chief saying that the governments displayed a willingness to commit to a proper ceasefire do you still have confidence that can happen. i'm sorry i didn't hear the questions there was a problem with the un observer chief saying that the government has expressed a willingness to cease fire to a proper ceasefire do you have confidence that yes yes. yes well it's very difficult i mean let's let's let's look at the situation in
11:15 am
a realistic way there are some many tanks that are all around syrian cities major syrian cities there are gunmen you know and it's very difficult they're not very well organized so there are different groups of armed men on the streets and it's very difficult for the army syrian official army to withdraw from the cities and leave the ground for the government so that's also making things more complicated what is required is that there is that the government would actually back down and the syrian army would withdraw the tanks from the cities and that's very difficult to implement a large number of you and observers are quite special a number of these rebels are being being paid. well that's the problem and there are weapons being smuggled into syria last week there was a shipment of weapons that were stopped by the lebanese army on the lebanese coast and there was a huge shipment of some some heavy some some high caliber. weapons and this could create a lot of damage and i think that the countries surrounding cities should actually
11:16 am
make put more pressure on on stopping the smuggling of weapons to syria because this smuggling weapons to syria will only increase the violence and violence will lead to more violence and this is a vicious circle so i think the right way forward is that the syrians find a way to actually sit on the table and discuss the political plan for a plan for a political solution there is no violence solution in syria and in order to do that there is a chance and the chances with the kofi annan plan and the kofi annan plan it has six points one of the points is to have a ceasefire and it's very difficult to implement this at the kind time and it's very difficult to blame one side for violating the cease fire instead of another because there are no monitors on the ground and the monitors are insufficient the numbers of martha is very limited and even if they are three hundred monitors i think there should be a will by the syrian people to actually. sit on the table and resolve things politically or else the future of syria can be very sad i would say and it will
11:17 am
a lot of misery for the syrian people taking what you say in the. political analyst and senior columnist of the newspaper thanks for your time. protesters gathered in barcelona today chanting slogans in protest to european central bank chiefs meeting their security precautions ahead of the meeting were heavily ramped up spade even going as far as to reinstate checkpoints along its border with france in a bid to try to limit the number of demonstrators possibly arriving from within europe now the fear was that a potentially massive protest could turn violent thousands of riot police were deployed there with reinforcements on standby the e.c.b. chiefs meantime resisted calls to begin buying up spanish bonds as investors abandon the country's debt auctions instead they're urging patience over austerity saying it needs time to work all this is spain reeling from those disastrous unemployment figures twenty five percent
11:18 am
a million strong austerity demonstrations economist yanis varoufakis says he sees glaring double standard. while the easing be spent over the last few months one trillion new financing bankrupt banks. being cleared to be loaned because creative and. it is excusing to come to this is for states like spain like portugal like ireland like greece and to come to this is european union the whole require is misanthropic conditions to be imposed upon the population to build countries so you can. read more of that evidence of your one is towards the bankrupt bankers who were essential in holding this crisis and they are being treated with it. and then you have the way the state explain them being true to europe does not have the. should be there in order to have the kind

it. our next story from oscar the sea of knowing goes deep beneath the rolling english countryside where there are large pockets of gas suitable for energy trouble is though getting it can be destructive and very toxic to those living above the process of fracking is banned in some countries but nonetheless the british government says it intends to drill away anyway your respective public fears all the environmental consequences of a bennett 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
11:21 am
pollution but it fails to address the fact that quakes in seismicity you know this 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 the department of energy climate change to 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 has already been given for fracking to start and that's the hole that will be pumped with water at one thousand meters it's not shallower than most other fracking sites which means
11:22 am
the risks of tremors a much higher but so too are 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 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 balcombe surrounded by a network of reservoirs that provide water to much of england's 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 in 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 hell we're going to move away from fossil fuels and what's happening at the moment is that the government is diverting its attention and its resources towards. energy such as nuclear and fracking that don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce clo it 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 might have been it r t sussex it's a story of following a lot of this challenge want to touch it was more as well come on our website r t dot com couple news stories in brief the trial of a fugitive vice president's been perspire own while his lawyers appeal for a special court to hear the case now hashimi denies running death squads targeting government officials security forces and shiite pilgrims he's currently seeking
