as the beginning of the supposedly land of economic and eastern bloc now off you went afterwards to berlin on a whirlwind visit which lasted for only half the day was going to put an end german chancellor angela merkel who seemed to see eye to eye on the matters concerning syria now earlier in the week u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton said that russia is aiding to the troubles in syria by continuing to support the regime of president bashar al assad to which of course the russian president prepared a response. but russia unilaterally supporting regime. we have longstanding good relations with syria but we soon to be conflict. and agree with. common objectives. both russian and german leaders seem to believe that the peace plan should be seen to progress to fully at the moment it does seem like a strong a by the seemingly unstoppable of fighting on all sides in syria now of
course that not all leaders in europe seem to agree with the french president francois long also earlier in the week did mention that france supports military intervention in the middle eastern country and of course that is something that russia is adamantly against and that was one of the matters discussed by putin on his last leg of the european tour which took him to paris now of course there is no agreement on the issue of syria among the european leaders among other issues which were also discussed or mentioned. meeting with the french president of course was the issue of missile defense now russia's russia's adamant that the plan for creation of the missile defense shield in eastern europe a plan much hailed by nato and the united states as being very much needed by countries to counteract the pose a cost. strikes from the likes of iran and north korea now these plans worry very
much and moscow has been adamant in its demands that nato and its allies present guarantees that this missile shield will not be used against russia. in the past we've often been promised we wouldn't expect then we were promised a new two wouldn't put military hardware in the russian but we've seen it expand and it's been you know we need guarantees but i'd like to say we're not going to escalate this discussion we've been ready to engage in dialogue it is natural that all of these issues of course will crop up during the rush e.u. summit which kicks off in st petersburg today and although we probably cannot expect a major breakthrough to be done it is clear that a lot of people lot of observers as well as all of the european leaders involved are hoping that some sort of movement forward will finally be made at least in some of these topics. clashes in lebanon between the groups for and against the assad
regime across the border of the nine people dead and more than forty wounded and independent u.n. panel is to investigate last week's who massacre in syria which more than one hundred people including many children were slaughtered damascus and anti-government forces are blaming each other for orchestrating. the arab league is now discussing the crisis in syria with the arabiya pledging more aid. kofi annan warned the meeting of arab ministers that the country is slipping into an all out civil war and the present. violence. does explains just why the court shows no signs of abating. it's important to know that it's the u.s. and nato who are creating a civil war in syria in terms of arming commando mercenaries flood.
in the country with weapons doing everything that they can to destabilize syria and the latest massacre in houla is just one more example because it's this exact scenario that the u.s. has used to justify quote humanitarian intervention in the past and after they create total destabilization send in all sorts of mercenaries and armed groups and they claim that they're going in in order to save the situation it's absolute hypocrisy and ford and they've done it with the u.n. security council support and they've done it without u.n. security council support and we've seen this in the past and it's clear that the u.s. is not interested in a diplomatic solution they are in every way trying to move toward military intervention which means massive destruction of the entire country but they're already responsible for great destruction. what has the strife in syria drags on
the rebels are being sustained by a constant flow of alms from neighboring lebanon but this deadly trade is also a matter of faith not just money from the russian reports and so it shows off his goods. this is five thousand dollars thirteen hundred eighteen hundred and two thousand the seven machine guns between two american three thousand u.s. burks. not his real name also has to look at propelled and hand grenades which he showed me in private. or contact me every day we have a revolution next door. we talking shop his garage in tripoli lebanon on syrian rebels are his major clients are very popular but recently they're looking for a really heavy stuff we buy from her and their hours and research they have a nerve and they're getting it for free as
a run makes their entire story. it'll take no more than ten hours for this shot he says to reach lebanon's conflict and gulf to neighbor since the beginning of the uprising in syria last march arms prices have rocketed for some items they coast has gone up five and sometimes even ten times and the more the conflict drags on the mall look at if it rains for the weapons dealers but money is not the key reason shaadi is a sunni muslim and to him it's his holy duty to support his co religious fighters in syria for sure. they do it. in a sunni dominated north not been and where we meet the arms dealer those who want assad out are in the absolute majority and they are sending their religious brothers in neighboring syria a lot more than prayers. mad twenty nine year old field commander from the free syrian army was wounded during the baba amr siege earlier this spring together with
other injured after say members his now having treatment in lebanon but his not stopped fighting entirely. syrian ex-pats everywhere in the world or people from. saudi arabia also send his money by weapons walkie talkies. he says every day tons of this aid go through his hands but for him it's not enough as soon as he gets better he'll return to syria. is a selfie a radical sunni group whose influence in this part of lebanon is growing dramatically. there are demonstrations in favor of the syrian uprising a role so the support package everything sounds. we also need some offish a call my back one of the founders of the band islamic group. suspected of links to international terrorism but he says his input in the syrian revolt in sending the
rebels the ideas and encouragement to achieve the ultimate goal what would be to make all the overthrow of the government would make all the squabbles speak for against the. issues and make them all again to see a government and other some a fish a can triple he runs this car parts shop and he confirms that every sunni and especially every cell of fish here in lebanon is involved either ideologically or financially in what he calls syrian liberation. already helped the tunisian and egyptian revolution we want syrians now to get rid of this regime. shake marzan doesn't wear muslim white robes and keeps his beard secret every summer feet short so as not to draw too much attention he says everybody sacrifices something these days just to see their mission and assad's. syria completed. she reporting from northern lebanon on. what i saw i had few this hour forty shades of austerity
ireland says yes to the new fiscal treaty in a referendum that means brussels taking control of the country's national economic policy. and raging over roadblocks and who serve protesters clashed with nato peacekeepers over barricades in order to consider. egypt's ousted president hosni mubarak who was given a life sentence on saturday has been admitted to a prison hospital after reportedly suffering a heart attack on his way from the court. the lifetime and acquittal of his two sons was considered to be linked by many triggering mass protests across the country people demanding the death penalty for the players be there more than ten thousand gathered overnight in camera when enraged more of a techno headquarters a presidential candidate and pastor shafique freelance journalist no true was into
their square karate. people at the moment are really quite angry with the guys from a kind of a bar it was given twenty five years of life sentence they were euphoric because people busy making would just be done for corruption charges however they realized that his sons are also. the interior ministry's eighty six police officers would not be actually quite so it's people started to realize that perhaps the verdict wasn't what they wanted so what we saw was actually a much stock price here process egypt where people basically came to the streets are extremely angry about lot of people calling for justice and. so we still have several tens of thousands of people here with aunt across egypt really very angry mubarak the family story is. a scene is about it was really you know i mean that's one of the biggest fears the protesters. fearing greedy is not sure he will last me . if he stuck to his heels i'm no such lee and up serving his life sentence this
is why people are still on the streets basically people think believe that to reduce your system is transparent so they think that perhaps the bar will be acquitted because that's what the regime the old regime are still in place once people are beginning to make the connections between what they consider to be the old regime and the new regime which the military council basically what they seen is mubarak get off lightly they want to hear they want to see the death sentence they wanted his sons to be put in prison at the same time in the background of elections where the far experiment prime minister which fifty is actually considered to be one of the most more than makes the most popular candidates so people are really fearing is that this regime will never end and the revolution is in fact it's not worse well patrick henningsen associate editor of the website info wars dot com but he's mubarak's trial and the choice solve the two remaining presidential election candidates proves that the old regime is still effectively in control. you look at who stayed in power after the fall of mubarak you know the
real power in egypt is those were the morning military and security services and they were all found not guilty there is a scramble for power there between the old guard. and the muslim brotherhood north sea the only day the real story here is it how can you have a free and fair elections in a country that is still under a military dictatorship so according to election officials the first round of elections. shortly a vote for numbers were not just for either show feet or morsi so what we have here i believe it looks like a staged a kind of a staged election that we're looking at. time is running out for jordan solomons as his legal team now has less than two weeks for the last ditch attempt to contest the latest extradition of the princess supreme court wants to hand over the wiki leaks founder to sweden of and that's sex crimes and sons and supports us fear it
could eventually mean being on the day of it in the u.s. to face espionage charges. has a story. the truth shall set you free all know the supporters were out in full six weeks for julian assange tearing his appeal was rejected in a split five t. decision by the judges after all the five hundred days of house arrest in person he's now on the brink of deportation to sweden to answer questions about sexual assault accusations he's say a trumped up basic point you remember that julian hasn't been charged with any crime in any country and it really is extraordinary so much pain actual joy just for the purpose of questioning. it all began when we kill it started revealing uncomfortable truths about the u.s. government the afghanistan and iraq all of scaife shocking detail about the violent occupation of these countries the scale of civilian deaths on potential war crimes all at the hands of u.s.
forces and the swedish arrest warrant wasn't far behind i think this will send a chilling effect to all potential bits of law was that if they dare challenge the secrecy and indeed in many cases war crimes of united states they will face retribution and that's bad for democracy it's bad for human rights the case has been seen by many as a david and goliath style fight the stanch taking on not just the legal system but the establishment that seek to silence him and wiki leaks and it's not just the government it's media that champion the sound is a freedom of speech defend a spectacularly turned on him in recent times he didn't want to be a member of the club. and that was the problem we can reach produced in a matter of. revelation about the workings of democratic of the workings of the world in many ways how the world is wrong and all the news by
the western world put together. the word jealousy comes. in a further twenty. in the tales legal team managed to get him an eleventh hour extradition stay they failed this battle is likely to end up in the european court of human rights. richard. the third. disappointment among his cyclo to the station and a real sense that this wasn't just the last stand and his legal team but along with the british justice fifty. third. remember you can always watch any of us some of his interview shows a lot on dot com during the storm storm and during the sounds of occupy protesters to head their first ten story of how a small movement became what it is now. and germany was
violent clash between nazis and anti nazi groups and. more than seven hundred arrests. now on thursday ali and voted yes to the e.u. fiscal treaty by a margin of sixty to forty critics say the plan will impose long term austerity and permanent loss of sovereignty from dublin to brussels economic affairs. has more. ireland says yes to writing european austerity into law and ceding more sovereignty to brussels the sixty forty result saw a split between rich and poor with middle class and rural areas in favor and working class. against sinn fein leader gerry adams campaigned vigorously against the treaty and is now islands most popular party leader as a result of government. to
get people. to work. so. they'll need to unemployment up to fifteen percent welfare payments are cut public sector spending has been slashed everyone's feeling the pinch including publican jimmy killed near he's seen his turnover by half as locals batten down the hatches we would have had. five full time employees yeah for part time to full time to part time. jobs. it's
a huge factor it's the discretionary spend that people have. very very very careful on how they spend their money to pay the economies tightly bound to the eurozone through bank loans and bailouts the treaty binds budget treat policy even tighter so that brussels will have a say over how arlan spends its money on healey of social justice i'll. and says it's a badly written treaty that will do what it's meant to do what we're looking at no is a limiting limitation being imposed by this treaty which we believe quite strongly means that we cannot put in the investment levels that are required of the scale that's required to actually generate the growth to produce the jobs that are required to get out of this mess that it's in thanks to their constitution the irish are the only european people who got to vote on the pact and to e.u.
member governments have already signed it the yes vote will give added power to an unpopular treaty france's new president francois hollande has talked about trying to renegotiate the pact and germany's angela merkel despite having written the treaty can't get her own parliament to ratify it richard boyd baratz of the united left alliance sees a bleak future because of all of the gambling debts and banks and speculators of import on to the books of the state and that this would mean permanent austerity billions worth of cuts every year for at least a decade or more in order to meet the treaty targets and that we believe will do damage to the economy which is already very traumatized for ireland it seems more damaging austerity is up ahead here in dublin every taste is bristling with referendum haste is there no posters call the fiscal pact the bankers treaty the all stare at sea pact but the yes campaign has won the day with its message of
stability. prepared to cede silver and sea in exchange stuff financial back up but even that's not guaranteed in a beleaguered you're right they know it's me marty. declan ganley a founder of the better party campaign for a no vote. needs to find an alternative to dumping huge debts on people a massive bank losses they didn't cause. the chances of real a real return of vitality in the european economy i think is somewhat slim particularly in peripheral countries island for its part has an even bigger proportion of failed private bank debt that was social life after it fell down the rest of the european union and we did that in two thousand and eight and two thousand and ten in order to start to save the euro to prevent contagion from spreading so what needs to be done now is that europe needs to come up with
a solution that either federalizes that debt and spreads it across all of the european union all the rights it off in some other form but to leave that stark on the irish taxpayer money that our government never borrowed that cannot stand i call for serious moves to be made to create a. united states of europe constructed in a federal way from the bottom up that is to say that it is fully democratically accountable and solvent. on friday nato led peacekeepers deployed in the northern coast of the exchanged fire with angry protesters for demonstrators into german alliance soldiers were wounded in the clashes local serbs trying to prevent troops who are moving barricades they set up last year on the border with kosovo blocks were wrecked it in response to an attempt by being authorities to impose border and customs controls serbs in kosovo reject its two thousand and eight declaration of independence from serbia
a political analyst and sound of it. says the presence of foreign troops and stirs up trouble. the nato forces which are being called peacekeepers are actually trying to use force to force the course of the serbs to accept living in independent kosovo which they won't accept and that's the whole root of the problem this morning they've actually fired live ammunition at people trying to keep the barricades and they're trying to keep the barricades to prevent. the calls of all baiting regime from prishtina to get a hold of the north northern part of the territory so actually this morning we've had wounded civilians wounded by so-called peacekeepers using live ammunition against barehanded people on our own people so actually peace is the last thing that on their mind unfortunately i do want to say that this was something at the beginning of june which was to be expected because there is a sort of
a power vacuum in belgrade right now we've just had parliamentary and presidential elections but we do not have a functioning government and we only have a technical government so actually what's nato and the e.u. and the us are doing they're using the power vacuum in belgrade to try to to establish a new reality on the ground in kosovo they too want to know exclusive interview talked to said he is newly elected president he says he's ready to maintain done up with pristina he could pretty. there's a similar could go to the sort that i'm ready for dialogue but not with hashem touching because there is a special that he committed crimes against the being the evil he cannot negotiate until the investigation of his case finishes but i will speak with other representatives but after the bombing of serbia in one thousand nine hundred nine we left nato in the territory of culture vocal we gave them civil and military power we have a administration for communities in northern kosovo and the e.u. has asked us to abolish these serbian institutions we responded that we cannot do
that because we have a university that you hospitals schools and colleges i just follow the constitution and in serbia the president it guarantors our constitution says that kosovo and metohija are parts of serbia. the worst cyber attack in history that's the verdict of russian internet security specialists on the latest computer virus that swept through the middle east last week now in this flame this software is said by experts labs to have the capability to devour data like nothing ever seen before it's believed that a variety of computers belong to individuals and state organizations were targeted in iran syria lebanon and sudan by the virus which is a standard security at this hour many pieces have been damaged in the war acted experts are still trying to determine where it started but suspect that a single country may be behind the attack. but we suspect that.
there is a nation stayed behind the development of this cyber attack and there are reasons for that these applications doesn't feed into a near or for existing groups that develop cyber attack tools they're currently three groups there are traditional cyber criminals who are hunting users there and this doesn't fit into the group of traditional cyber criminal moreover also it doesn't doesn't feed into the heck to be smaller who are using typically free and open source tools to attack computers on the internet and this sort known group by a baby is the piece nation state supported developments and that is why we think it's one of them. well we have the headlines coming up next.
welcome back the headlines. first for his recent gratian europe's heavy weights. at the russian. the russian made western intervention in syria. to stick to the. civil. government forces in syria trade accusations of. which at least one hundred people don't like the u.n. investigation. rock bottom for ousted egyptian president hosni mubarak as he begins
