we were told that this district was cleaned from turkey months ago but as you can hear it's not properly here questions still continue shelling and shooting in the syrian city of palms as the death toll continues to rise brings an exclusive report from the heart of the uprising. meanwhile wiki leaks promised to shed new light on the syrian conflict as the group begins to release millions of e-mails claiming that materialism is damning not only for damascus but also the west. and washington plans to invest millions to upgrade the notorious one ton of mold base the move suggesting the shutdown of the detention facility once promised by barack obama is still a far cry. from the glue merkel's wrong to have made germany responsible for spain's

mogul one hundred seventy two because of his right in an open letter to the more in the business of twenty. thank you for joining r.t. at this friday with me karen terrell broadcasting to you live from the heart of moscow while shelling continues in the syrian city of holmes as u.n. monitor the violence in the contrie house reached unprecedented levels more than one hundred people have been killed in the last three days our correspondent for national heard heavy artillery herself as she toward the war torn neighborhoods of homes. in. these parts of hundreds to maybe back on the syrian army control but their patrols never stop soldiers are searching house to house
3:02 am
they're looking for terrorists or snipers but that's not what they usually find. some people in their homes became their grades too and this room look human bones but at least one person. who seems to have been burnt to death. in the next house we find three more charred skulls. activists claim up to eight hundred thousand people have been killed since the uprising began sixteen months ago the un estimates around ten thousand we have no way of telling if these remains or others like them were even counted at all. by bomb or used to be home to one hundred thousand people now we're driving through ghost area people have left military almost the only human beings left in this area this is he can see behind me this is a cemetery almost untouched actually while the rest of the city looks completely
3:03 am
like the cemetery buildings schools mosques all in ruins and no sign of life while many signs of this is one of the tallest buildings in the area and we can see from this balcony two completely different pictures two completely different realities look there beautiful pictures peaceful city while over there well we can see war homes the opposition hotbed has always been at the heart of the uprising against president assad is a weirdo bomb that if you could have been the epicenter of the questions between the rebels and the army once it's been shelled heavily now so you can see it's quiet here but just steps away just meters away another basic. sometime here and this is where the things are happening right now it's standing behind these raised stranger a squad say but from time to time missiles reach this area to this is why would a hurry up. but with the bar in other homes the district as you can see also almost
3:04 am
completely destroyed everything shops building schools even mosques we were told that this district was cleaned from turkey months ago but as you can hear not far from here questions still continue so we were actually told not to go any further as it simply dangerous. soldiers come to our location they told us the rebels woke up so we leave. just a fifteen minute drive takes us to yet another image of homs the people here aren't taking their bags at least the raw people here see the. very good and it's very soon if you will have a common english. talking to this man at a coffee on the street full of people it's easy to forget this truck to night just a few blocks away. r.t. homs syria. meanwhile iraq's foreign minister asked confirmed al qaeda militants
3:05 am
are flowing into syria to stage terrorist attacks earlier this year an al qaeda leader called on muslims to support the syrian rebels political commentator and historian gerald horan says western powers are playing with fire when supporting the opposition. we all know that during the one nine hundred eighty s. when we united states was involved in trying to disrupt afghanistan that they're on a stage collaborated with al qaeda and bin laden himself and the iraqis have a very bitter experience with al qaeda we know that before the u.s. invasion about ten years ago there were about two million christians in iraq service that invasion and because of the car bombings and other kinds of depredations committed by al qaeda who now have a few hundred thousand christians in iraq many of those refugees have moved to syria where they're now experiencing the same thing that they experienced in iraq
3:06 am
this ragtag bunch that's called the free syrian army is not going to be able to dislodge one of the most powerful militaries in the region the turkish planes that interfere in syrian airspace just a few days ago came to realize that the silk syrian military has nothing to claim with so i think that diplomacy is the only way out let us hope that the north atlantic powers that we learned from the libyan experience we know that they drop tons of weapons in libya in order to dislodge the regime of mr gadhafi under the guise of humanitarian intervention wiki leaks says promising to present a different take on the ongoing syrian conflict unless a blind group has started publishing the so-called syrian files millions of emails that it warrants will expose the west's hypocrisy in dealing with damascus earlier i spoke to our correspondent sarah firth who's following the developments from london. this is the biggest release since we had table gate which gave us the u.s.
3:07 am
diplomatic cables and a really unique insight into the workings of the u.s. government now the syria files is even bigger than that it's supposed to be eight times bigger than the u.s. diplomatic table late in terms of documents and a hundred times bigger in terms of data now in the same way that we saw the u.s. diplomatic cables released its thought a similar things going to be happening with the syria files wiki leaks have partnered up with different media organizations around the world and they go through the data and release this in small stages now so far from what's been released already we've had a very interesting insight into the workings because these are the e-mails that were being exchanged between senior political figures in syria ministry figures corporations around the world the first e-mails that were released we showed that an italian company had been providing communications equipment to the syrian police and the syrian army know that contract is signed back in two thousand and eight
3:08 am
when relations with the syrian regime were much stronger with the west it shows that the technical assistance with the will being provided later is february of this year so you know clearly that company more than happy to continue providing that assistance even as the violence he claimed a huge number of lives in the country and so you know i think probably there's going to be a lot of very nervous companies around the world is going to be a lot of nervous members of the syrian government certainly as we once again has this major coup in providing us with you know a very unique glimpse of what is going on now what about julian assange know he's been holed up in the door an embassy awaiting his solemn but answer has i haven't heard any comments from the chief whistleblower he did he released a comment three one of his spokesman sara harris and she said on his behalf that what. fyles waiting to do is not to embarrass one side or another it was aimed to
3:09 am
give us really an understanding of what was going on and he said that it was only through understanding the conflict that we'd be able to find some sort of resolution see a poignant words from the man himself who is of course at the moment he is a very. in the ecuadorian embassy here in london still he thinks the battle against that it's this into sweden and again indeed the thoughts of the u.s. if he were to be sent to sweden the fact that the syrian files are making headlines despite all the criticism julian assange and wiki leaks have faced prove the group significance says just national security and human rights director at the government accountability project if these leaks were meaningless fluff or not in the public interest in knowing cared no one would report on them and they would see julian assange djoser crackpot and no one would pay any attention to it the fact that they're being reported on inherently shows their worth despite the fact
3:10 am
that credit card companies that choked off financial support to wiki leaks and that he is holed up in the embassy this organisation is continuing to function which is a testament to the viability of weekly leaks as an organization especially at this time and i find all of this is very interesting because it shows number one week the leaks is alive and well despite the best efforts of so many countries to shut it down and number two that as much as it means stream media wants to distance itself from wiki leaks the syria files are the front page of every major newspaper in the world right now and don't forget the wiki leaks editor julian assange has been hosting his own interview program right here on our t.v. all eleven editions of which are always available at some dot com.
3:11 am

poor and major salma into the new infrastructure for its military base at guantanamo bay the u.s. government repeatedly pledged to put an end to the controversial detention facility that's based at the site and used to hold terror suspects are she's going to has more. forty million dollars will be spent to lay out this underwater fiber optic cable from south florida to cuba where the guantanamo bay prison camp is located the base commander said it only makes sense if we're going to be here for any period of time an infrastructure project like that may well suggest that the u.s. military is preparing for detentions and other operations at the guantanamo base for the long term when president obama was first running for office he pledged to shut down guantanamo in very strong terms in two thousand and nine ve even signed an executive order to close it but not only did he not shut it down but the u.s. is obviously renovating guantanamo in this case by proving communications and the
3:14 am
argument is you don't make such an investment to pick up and leave guantanamo has made a black hole in america's human rights record indefinite detention torture around eight hundred people went through the camp within the last decade of america's war on terror the majority of them had nothing to do with nine eleven that's according to a former chief prosecutor guantanamo now the prison house is one hundred sixty nine detainees the government says eighty nine aren't those threats but president obama and congress have blocked their release as for the rest some of them have a shot at a military hearing but forty six don't have that chance because the government says they can't be tried for one reason or another the u.s. supreme court keeps refusing to take up one tunnel detainees petitions what has been striking to me was that the u.s. prides itself on the rule of law and human rights but at the same time has denied legal process to these detainees practice torture and not just think one tunnel but in secret prisons around the world human rights organizations have issued reports
3:15 am
on all kinds of violations but to the u.s. it's been like water off a duck's back here as lawyer and attorney eric montreal who's represented some of the detainees at guantanamo believes the american leadership is totally failing to practice what it preaches. it's you're saying one thing and doing the complete opposite on one hand you know we're closing the base but on the other hand we're crafting water the state of the art you know penal institutions in the united states there's a big disconnect between the justice department between homeland security between the president and states and our foreign policy and i think we need to evaluate you know why we're spending millions upon millions of dollars on something that should not even be there in the first place later this hour we speak with british lawyer and university professor philip sands who says legal advisers practically gave the leadership unlimited power to do anything they wanted. them number of the lawyers
3:16 am
involved very senior level had no real background in the subject of international law the protection of the right individual and were very ideological in their approach basically they saw their function as lawyers not as b. to give independent legal advice but to give the president the tools to do what he want to do that's not the function of a lawyer in any society in any democratic society. greece is furious at the british prime minister over his remarks think u.k. could restrict greeks from entering the country the move could also prevent other eurozone citizens coming to britain to escape recession at home greek m.p. ever believes david cameron is striking a populist note just to try to keep a hold of his party. cameron's losing his party it seems that the democratic party is going really better so maybe it's like populism or trying to
3:17 am
say something i've used this kind of statements think chris his popularity are less likely to leave the country so nothing like that to be a problem and greeks never count three they moved to the ground the immigrants went to fairly or anywhere else they just created jobs and work really hard their way there so they wouldn't create a problem haven if that would be the case it's against all the rooms of the european union saying something like that while we're trying to get us out of this crisis i don't think it's good it was just pointless for me. and if you're headed on line here are some of the other stories worth checking out on our website r.t. dot com. the fukushima power plant disaster may have been triggered by a tsunami but japan says it was human error that led to the disaster unfolding also . we've got the footage of a massive fire that raged in the russian capital find all the photos and videos of
