hello this is r.t. from moscow it's two pm in now my name is kevin aoun and first this hour less than three weeks before egypt's landmark presidential election and the country's plunging deeper into turmoil mass protests against the interim military rulers have turned deadly if you at least one person reported dead and scores injured and our correspondent in the region. has the latest for you. friday's violence a city have been triggered when protesters ignored warnings not to approach the defense ministry building they started throwing stones at security forces who responded with tear gas and water cannons and according to a number of eyewitnesses they were rounds of live ammunition that were fired what is particularly significant those are for the first time we witnessing hard line is numbers at the forefront of these what has become a weekly demonstration is with the ruling military and when we talk about islam as we're talking here about the powerful muslim brotherhood as well as the ultra conservative still laugh as party the islam has joined the confrontation is way

into heavyweight islamized candidates who had been put forward for the presidential polls that are taking place later this month who are disqualified now all of this comes hot on the heels of deadly caches only when the week on wednesday in front of the defense ministry building and here we see allegations go forward and backwards between the security forces and the protesters in terms of who started it according to the protesters they were attacked by thugs and plain clothed police and troops but according to activists as well as residents they say that the protesters began the violence by provoking the forces and that many of the protesters themselves were armed what is particularly significant is that we are witnessing cracks in the opposition to the ruling military whereas once they seem united more and more we're hearing of these splinter groups beginning to form so many of these sturgeon violence is affecting the election campaign in what we witnessing is that these street battles are raising fears of
6:03 am
a new cycle of violence ahead of these presidential elections on the twenty third and twenty fourth of may we violence has also raised the campaigning in turmoil already two weeks trying to run as well as several other candidates the candidates have an ounce of where they are temporarily suspending their campaigns in protest against the heavy handedness in which the ruling military has been dealing with protesters but we've been. hearing from the generals if they come to twenty fourth of may if there is one hour flight winner from one of the thirteen candidates who is standing in these presidential elections then they will hand over power but increasingly egyptians on the street don't believe the word of the ruling military . fall asleep or their will as the voices of islam is scrolled louder in cairo's tahrir square their message is also being heard on the streets of germany to later in the program we take a look at a controversial campaign in the european powerhouse by one of the most radical muslim movements. but next the two french presidential candidates have made their
6:04 am
last appeals to voters ahead of sunday's run off poll that crisis has been central to their campaigns with francois hollande promising to challenge the e.u. fiscal pact agreement champion of course by his rival nicolas sarkozy. reports. well one day to go before the french at the polls and make that decisive vote and even the city itself is preparing to usher in their next president now it's down to two men incumbent nicolas sarkozy of his socialist challenger francois law and order to the polls is still trailing behind a lot but there is still the question mark as to who the voters of but independent the national front and centrists who are they going to choose for the site that the french will essentially be choosing between a man along with claims that he will bring back a wall would be to the country also want to go head to head with german chancellor angela merkel to challenge a fiscal pact that he says is bad for france on the other hand you have a man asuka's even claims that he is the only one who can prevent france from going
6:05 am
down the path that greece italy spain and all the trouble do result nations have gone down but there is a group of people who believe that they don't really have a choice when it comes to the program presented to them and therefore the personality of these two men has become just as important as the proposal stay put for it boils down to which man is more presidential can take on better now from the beginning of the campaign there hasn't been much enthusiasm from the people saying that they don't need to see any of the candidates presented that with a real solution that could bring france out of the quagmire that it's there nevertheless eighty percent of voters have said that they have already made up their minds be it the stuff they see for either of the two. new dependent specializing on fronts he says if. we will see a different approach of the country on the world stage. the biggest change you have to say is that it will be one of style stuck ozias is it's very dramatic he leaps
6:06 am
into a plane and flies to your journey he intervenes dramatically in libya very vocal in his hostility to syria and iran i think if all of these elected only if i know means certain yet. he will be much more karma and we've drawn partly because he doesn't carry the experience to legally creatively neatly into the defense of the front if you like but also by temperament lose much more of a synthesizer as the saying goes than than sarkozy he's much less a dramatic personality and i think because he thinks that france needs a change from the slightly energetic style of leadership of nicolas sarkozy but i think one has to say that there are big question marks but far small and he's never been a minister of any sort i mean this is i would say probably almost unique in a major western country that someone's got this far in the electoral process and they've never served in any sort of for public office at
6:07 am
a national level so of course there is the other factor that at least half of the country have a big question mark about whether they really want a socialist government because they always suspect fairly or unfairly for the socialists will tax and spend and maybe that's not appropriate for the present circumstances. because let you know as well later today we've got a bit more insight into the european debt crisis with max and stacey lifting the lid on the latest dirty secrets behind the financial headlines in the latest edition of the kurds a report. the u.n. peace plan for syria is working despite reports of ceasefire violations so says the office of international envoy kofi annan his spokesman defended and man's mission saying violence has reduced that's despite the u.s. renewing its calls for another approach in thing at the plans defeat but as an artist sarah furthur ports know from damascus many syrians hope the upcoming
6:08 am
parliamentary vote will also bring some stability to the conflict torn country too . syria's gearing up for parliamentary elections next week and all across the capital damascus right now you can see these campaign posters that have been put up around the city now this comes as the u.n. observers are in the country touring around different areas tasked with verifying the implementation the u.n. envoy k finance peace plan now casey and spokes person has come out and said that he's planned despite reported violations from both sides is back on track now that statement came against the backdrop of pressure we've seen being increased by some of the international countries we've seen the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton was in china this week urging the country to see a slice of the sanctions over syria now really the message the u.n. envoy spokes person with this is a choice does not mean going on for more than
6:09 am
a year is not going to be solved in a day is not going to be solved overnight it's going to take time and say now really what you're seeing is a focus on these observers on their task in hand and of situations such as the parliamentary elections and what the outcome of these will be the parliamentary elections have come under a lot of criticism certainly from the opposition for taking place at the wrong time people feel that against the backdrop of a lack of security and of continuing violence that is simply not the right time to be holding these parliamentary elections but of course we've heard a lot of people calling for this push for democracy in the country to be implemented through the ballot box and not three bullets. russia's republican star is mourning the victims of twin terror attacks which claimed the lives of thirteen people and injured more than one hundred two powerful blast rocked
6:10 am
a police checkpoint in the capital within twenty minutes of each other on his roof and reports it's a sad fact that the recent attacks on police and authorities in turkistan a merely the latest incidents in a long running history of violence in russia's volatile caucasus region thursday's tragedy has already become the most devastating in months to massive car blasts in the outskirts of the capital markets and woke up the entire city. at home watching t.v. then we heard an explosion little t.v. set down and broke. around twenty cars were destroyed and the scene was littered with human body parts some even thrown as far as nearby trees and rooftops. de vry was spread for hundreds of meters around. my brother and me ducked down this metal being still here my brother almost died. but they were among the lucky
6:11 am
ones as their tech claimed more than a dozen lives policeman rescuers local residents the first explosion took off here when officers from this police post stopped the car for documents checked apparently the driver was a suicide bomber minutes later as many police cars and ambulances teams and emergency crews and fire brigades reach the area the second last occurred it was much more powerful you can see the crater is huge one some reports say the second last had a force of one hundred kilos in t.n.t. coolant and it claimed the most victims investigators have already identified the owners of both exploded cars. the double attack one mortar another is a tactic commonly used by international terrorist organizations such as an qaeda in places. iraq in afghanistan is designed to kill as many people as possible the president of biggest town was away when the blasts happened in
6:12 am
a bitter rivalry he was at a congress in moscow highlighting a counterterrorism complains recent success. the caucasus region has been suffering attacks by islamist terrorists for years this recent one the deadliest militants strike is part of this and go in battle between russia's federal forces and militants and it's unlikely to be the last. hour to report in from market and russia's biggest un security expert during the summer told us he believes the tactics used in the attacks point to links with international terrorist groups which must be tackled globally. there are very obvious similarities in the tactics that we are seeing in the north caucasus these days and tactics used by al qaeda and other. similar forces in iraq and afghanistan this is a particularly cool type of terrorist attack and it seems now to have reached the
6:13 am
north caucasus and this is a sign of contacts that exist between these terrorist groups in different parts of the world works like a franchise organization. it has a template and it encourages groups with domestic agendas to copy it this is a global problem we are seeing links between these terrorist groups in different parts of the world and so the response has also to be global and i welcome very much cooperation. between russia and western countries and dealing and tackling these issues that are still ahead for you on r.t. this hour focusing their attention in all the wrong places. they have the laws in place to attack piracy and i think ten years from now it's going to seem laughable and sad that our government went after pirates critics make their case against the pirate crackdown is another attempt a sense of the web. plus schools in protest in the us
6:14 am
parents teachers and children stage a rally over the devastating budget cuts but later we find out more about their efforts to teach the authorities the lesson. the speed at which is now mr radicalism is filled the void created by the arab spring that has alarmed many in the west but now it's arrived in their own backyards one of the most extreme branches of islam is making its voice increasingly and all under the protection of the west's cherished laws are teasing or piskun off reports from berlin. afternoon prayer in central moon. and once the worshipping ended the free distribution of car runs continued on three hundred thousand copies in over one hundred across most parts of germany but no mr new material here if the bible can be distributed why not the qur'an. there's nothing illegal about handing
6:15 am
out the koran the campaign may be provocative since it kicked off during easter but it's not even the timing which could draw so much attention but who is behind the distribution. that the southeast movement is one of the most radical wings of islam known for its truth interpretations of the koran and in association with jihad the holy war against nonbelievers and punishments that can include amputation and stoning not exactly the most constitutional penalties this man sums up the credo don't mention who gives men the right to create laws that right belongs to. organized by the local salafist community the campaign's long term goal is to put twenty five million copies of the koran into german forms but it's not clear which interpretation is being used but. there are passages about violence especially against women who are not protected by the law as men would be also
6:16 am
about violet said gates the other faithful. india it says here this is only an approximate translation. one of germany's most influential service leaders has already been charged in cologne with inciting the public to commit illegal acts. i do believe these people are dangerous they don't just teach which is ok but they're trying to draw the youth into a specific interpretation which promotes violence. the distribution of religious literature is protected by the constitution being part of the right to the freedom of opinion and religion as long as it doesn't promote violence or he trick. it's not. the case with all the korans being given out by the zionists so for now the only legal option for the german authorities is to stand aside and watch you want the. berlin. if you get
6:17 am
a moment among some of the stories getting most hits on our website r.t. dot com right now balloon hundred fifty people were wounded in this explosion during a political rally in our media we've got the pictures find out what went so badly wrong there online from us today and also a young man in a wheelchair has been denied entry to a club in russia's urals on his birthday despite arranging the party in advance again what went wrong we'll tell you we got the story at r.t. dot com. the u.k. high court recently called for the country's internet providers to block out to a massive file sharing website claiming it was distributing copyright material but the move but fired with the pirate bay welcoming twelve million more u.k.
6:18 am
visitors to its site last week journalist david seaman told us governments across the globe need to focus on more serious internet crimes he thinks. fight against quote unquote piracy is global we have these powerful but dying entertainment corporations that are putting tremendous pressure on legislators and on law enforcement on our government to crack down on what they see as piracy but piracy is not the same thing is that when you distribute a piece of music or you know a comedy show or anything like that and other people see it it's not as if the original creator has lost anything and fact there is a lot of evidence that those artists who receive a lot of play over the so-called piracy networks. and doing quite well because they reach millions of people who would not have even known about them otherwise they have these laws in place to attack piracy and i think ten years from now it's going to seem laughable and sad that our government went after pirates when there are
6:19 am
legitimate digital crimes happening online there's identity theft there's credit card fraud there are very serious things happening this online harassment all these things are happening and i think that's what our law enforcement agencies should be focused on. they a member of a secret society could grant you an elevated sense of status and power but just how much influence do they have on the world stage that's the question to try and find out our resident laurie hof this is on the streets of new york than to gauge people's opinion that. do you believe as secret elite is running the world this week let's talk about that there doesn't seem to be any compelling evidence the world has too many. disparate and independently acting things and functions in it for there to be sort of a single. ball of individuals instructing them where to go it just doesn't seem
6:20 am
credible to me what about groups like the bills or bridge group or club those kinds of things i think a lot of that is just sort of overblown and just rhetorical but there are groups of people that are powerful man they get together once a year and no one knows what they're talking about but we know they get together what do you think they're talking about. i get together with my friends couples homes here nobody knows who are talking about either so i don't really care about what they do you don't think that they're making decisions that influence your life not at all. do exist. in a part of the world but not the whole world so it seems there is a lot of different groups with different goals so there's a little element of it but it's not as evil as people might think yes exactly i don't really have an opinion on it i mean if you know rich people or rich people are going to have their own little country club that's fine with me just really bother me but money influences the world's right true but many of these people probably are employing us right. so it seems like most people don't even care
6:21 am
whether or not there's a secret elite group of people ruling the world and if they do exist that's probably just the way they like it. but a recent peace agreement between the u.s. and afghanistan has confirmed washington's commitment to the country even after its soldiers leave but according to military contributor and going to khrushchev the road is now left wide open for the permanent presence of u.s. troops in the region. the strategic partnership agreement signed by the u.s. president in afghanistan of the dead of the night is neither strategic nor it could be cool in any sense as any partnership between the united states and afghanistan this bizarre alliance between american democracy and. narco state could qualify for partnership from the washington viewpoint
6:22 am
then it means that all other stakeholders in afghan and pakistani security and stability have a lot of homework to do to recalibrate their new air protarchus to the open ended and infect a permanent u.s. military presence in afghanistan. more world news headlines now this self-proclaimed nine eleven mind khalid shaikh mohammed and four other men accused of planning the atrocities in the u.s. will be charged today at one time of day the new rules for trials held at guantanamo including a ban on evidence take the torture of previous attempts to charge but will stop three years ago when president barack obama tried to close the prison relatives of some of the victims of nine eleven truth complex to ten. a u.s.

drone strike has killed at least nine suspected militants in northwest pakistan the region's thought to be a lifeline of taliban cross border insurgent activity pakistan has previously complained about the attacks saying they violated sovereignty the rate of u.s. led strikes has increased since president obama took office in two thousand and eight. a french court sentenced an old gyroball nuclear scientist to five years in prison for plotting terrorist attacks he sure was arrested in two thousand and nine after police intercepted his e-mails to a middle aged al qaeda member at a communications suggested he was willing to be part of an active terrorist unit officials became suspicious of a share in two thousand and eight when threatening messages from al qaeda was sent to president nicolas sarkozy. here just two days left before russia gets its new leader as dmitri medvedev hands over to vladimir putin as president you know gratian certainly set to take place in the magnificent also the kremlin from which we will be broadcasting live our special coverage coming your way after seven
