colonel qadhafi the revolution has effectively could have managed to the secular rule of qaddafi and broady and islam is the government that currently be a leader who basically all seize power to the americans as apologize for the attack in benghazi and pledged to hunt down the perpetrators but that doesn't change the fact that the revolution has sort of unleashed this kind of religious extremism the administration wants to present it as an act by a small fringe group but the attack on the embassy in cairo in egypt on the same day this tuesday showed that maybe it's not so small and not so fringe so what happened on tuesday both and. scores of people stormed the u.s. diplomatic facilities in protest to a movie that made fun of prophet mohammed the movie was produced by a real estate developer from california it depicts mohammad as a fraud a womanizer and a madman it possibly would have gone unnoticed if it hadn't been for the preacher from florida terry jones who promoted the film the same terry jones who burnt the
4:04 am
koran last year and triggered mass riots in afghanistan the muslim brotherhood in egypt calls for demonstrations nationwide in response to this film now the afghan taliban are calling for revenge on americans. in response to the same film this is not the first time we see a wave of terror provoked either by individual acts of disrespect towards islam like this movie or by government policies on an individual level there was the koran burning by u.s. soldiers enough gonna stand at the beginning of the year that provoked a lot of violence and then there was this video which showed u.s. marines urinating on the afghan corpses certain u.s. government policies have also enraged the muslim world and provoked a violent backlash like torture at abu ghraib in iraq or guantanamo or civilians killed in u.s. drone strikes in pakistan all that has been used by extremists to recruit more extremists the tragic assault in libya and the storming of the embassy in egypt
4:05 am
showed that the changes sweeping the region changes that the u.s. supported have hardly dispelled the rage against the united states in washington i'm going to check out. of course of this developing story online as also a dot com and also let us know i will choose something about the bond as that spreading across our countries so join the discussion on our facebook page. coming together in a federation of nation states as a way forward for european nations e.u. commission president jose manuel barroso outlined his plans of escaping the clutches of the crisis on the view is not sure but all across the region with
4:06 am
critics in the u.k. pointing out europe isn't even london's biggest trade partner anymore. reports. a federation states and deep earth political integration that's what the president of the european commission manu grosso has called for to pull member states out of the euro crisis nights and well the cools for the e.u. member states to hand more power to europe has really ruffled some feathers. has caused anger amongst us skeptics who say that less europe and not more is the answer now is evidence of that your skeptics point to figures that have been released show that for the first time since one thousand nine hundred seventy britain is exporting more kids to the countries than it is to countries inside the e.u. and a recent questionnaire that was given to two thousand businesses conducted by the british chamber of commerce eighty five percent of these businesses didn't want
4:07 am
further integration with the e.u. although only twelve percent questioned actually wanted to leave the all together now you are skeptics say that this point falls apart the moving away from us having the relations with the e.u. is certainly not going to damage the u.k. economy in fact far from it and that should be the way forward now here in the u.k. under legislation passed by the coalition were any substantial transfer of powers to be made to the and that would trigger a referendum head well to talk more about all of this we're joined by a. research fellow at the tax payers alliance thank you very much for joining us. brace's comments all they going to save us from the euro crisis. watch we've got to see commission finally coming clean about what the long term agenda for the. for what it's trying to do is trying to create all the powers that
4:08 am
is. trying to. make. most of of a disaster the eurozone disaster in order to achieve that that's not the answer but more you that this is never the answer actually breaking bits off the european union if you want to appear to work this could be less you are not law and in fact in the past a commission the president is. sitting talking about doing less you are doing it better so grabbing more is simply it's political ambition it's part of the reason why the european economic community set in the first place but it's not the answer to the our present economic problems. and another economic obstacle britain needs to look into is the growing inequality between big bosses and the rank and file employees the u.k.'s biggest trade union found the directors of the country's largest companies have built pension poss was almost seven million
4:09 am
dollars each. i reports now from london. politicians have long been saying that it's a time of belt tightening and budget cuts almost every sector of british society is suffering from schools and hospitals to pensioners and people with disabilities but there's one sector that seems immune from all this and that's the fat cats and company directors while everyone else is getting poorer they're getting richer the country's main trade union group the t.v. you see has released a report that exposes the gulf between the pensions of top company executives and ordinary because the top directors afoot c. one hundred companies receive average pensions a four hundred thousand dollars a year but that's just the average the chief executive of the gas company the be chief group for example frank chapman has a pension savings of a staggering thirty million dollars and this is regardless of how successful the directors company is or the state of the economy most stuff receive
4:10 am
a fraction of direct to the pensions two thirds of private sector employees don't even participate in company pension schemes while those that do will ultimately receive an average yearly pension of just fifteen thousand dollars now if companies don't stop chipping away at the pensions of the majority of workers in order to avoid that directors so-called solid pensions experts warn that britain could be staring in the face of an unprecedented pension of poverty crisis. while economic issues dominated the dutch election is still ahead for you this hour the nothing to stick to the you are a road as conservatives. old bugs will be renegotiated. plus the russian prime minister speaks on the divisive case of a russian punk band saying two years behind bars is to launch a punishment for the pussy riot girls who staged
4:11 am
a punk prayer in the country's main cathedral. that's later but now back to our top story violent protests in cairo and across the region against a us made film that seen as insulting the prophet mohammed so let's now cross to correspondent in the region. hello there lucy said the process to show no sign of dying down what's happening there now. well the situation has been really tense in the cairo egypt following the group of people who have scaled the embassy wall torn down an american flag there we've actually seen hundreds of people protesting overnight in cairo there have been reports of clashes with police including tear gas. reports of molotov cocktails being thrown so the situation is quite tense there we also know that the muslim brotherhood in egypt which had condemned the attacks and the killing in benghazi libya had also called for nationwide protests in egypt so it doesn't really look like that situation is on the verge of calming
4:12 am
down anytime soon if we turn to the situation and ghazi in libya it's quite different because we have to keep in mind that while u.s. influence in egypt was not really welcomed by the protests there they really see the u.s. as being the big backer of their former president and aren't really welcoming to their policies in libya the demonstrators there the uprising there had really welcomed western intervention so it's quite ironic unfortunately that the u.s. consul bastard was killed along with several other consulate workers when really they were the people that were invited into the country to help them overthrow moammar gadhafi and so it's a really really contradictory sort of situation but we do also have to keep in mind that some of the islamic militant groups in libya have been suspected of trying to put together this kind of situation in the past in june there was a reported bombing attempt of the very same building in the that was stopped and no one was injured but again it's a really tense situation and it only looks like this is going to inflame attitudes
4:13 am
across the arab world by the way we're bringing you live pictures from cairo right now. seems like the u.s. is not trusting. washington. right. well i mean the big question here is why there wasn't more security in the first place but yes that is correct we have heard from president obama that a team of u.s. marines is actually going to be making its way right now off to libya to try to help boost security there we've also heard reports of possible warships moving towards the area again to supplement security and we also heard reports of potential low drone use unmanned aerial. vehicles flying vehicles aircraft that would be used to sort of supposed terror elements within libya although again it's quite unclear how this is all going to work and we could potentially see that actions like these could further inflame attitudes the other thing we really have
4:14 am
to keep in mind with this video i mean this is and this isn't limited to egypt or libya by any means we've also seen protests in tunisia and we've also heard a far more disturbing situation in afghanistan where we have to remember the burning of the koran had led to at least the death of at least one person already by u.s. troops we've seen the government in afghanistan trying to block you tube in order to prevent people from seeing this video but of course the kinds of people that are going to take to the streets to riot are probably not the ones who have access to you tube anyhow and more disturbingly we've seen the taliban calling for actions against u.s. policy against u.s. workers and possible protests in that region so if this thing spreads of this escalates it really could set a very dangerous precedent for for u.s. interests in the region and of course this is all coming just two months of the very close election that president barack obama in the u.s. is facing and so a lot of a lot of questions here and a lot of potential negative implications for u.s.
4:15 am
interests abroad. right now we're bringing you some live pictures from cairo and you can see some clashes with police like huge crowds of people that gathering and we can see also smoke things on fire as well. things are happening in cairo so we can see all those protests on the streets of cairo the moment live pictures from there right now all right let's recap of our correspondents in the region thank you very much indeed. thank you. stoney after a magazine were published a spoof diet pill advertisement that he used images of in my stated prisoners at a nazi concentration camp the country's often criticized for harboring nazi ideals and for showing a reluctance to do anything about it. has this report. a prank which went terribly wrong in a story a newspaper asked to express posted
4:16 am
a picture of prisoners of a nazi death camp involved with a text one two three dr mengele spills will do wonders for you there were no fat men in book involve this reference to a man who was responsible for more than forty thousand deaths in nine hundred forty s. nazi death camps certainly has caused uproar both in the stone here and abroad with the local jewish community and simon wiesenthal center both accusing the newspaper off of making a joke out of a huge tragedy and a massive loss of human lives the newspaper itself tried to justify this picture by saying that this was simply a joke in response to an earlier incident when a gas heating company in a stoney a posted a picture off at the entrance to another nazi death camp with an advertisement of the heating system saying that their heating systems were reliable and very
4:17 am
efficient many experts and political analysts have been very critical of the fact that such things happen in a modern democratic state a member of the european union and this prank by the newspaper and the advertisement by the gas company forced the country's foreign minister to bring his apologies for those incidents he said that he felt very ashamed to be a stony and if his country's newspapers allow themselves such jokes with the use of the human tragedy the newspaper and the gas company have certainly taken down these pictures from their websites but have not yet apologized and even despite the fact that the foreign minister has brought his apologies still many have been questioning how sincere those apologies were because a stone has a record of dealing with the events of the past particularly with nazis and in his very own. sinister way several of the veterans who were fighting alongside the not
4:18 am
succeeded in the 1940's in the so-called baltic legion were made national heroes in the story after the collapse of the soviet union so this latest incident certainly more fuel to the fire in this ongoing story of how the baltic states have been dealing with and have been dealing with the perception of the past this incident this latest incident also caused indignation from the russian foreign ministry which. again shows how some power in the story and some of the ordinary population are dealing with things which were which are considered to be tragic and which are considered to be inhumane by the most of the world by most of the morning . and remember you can always head to our website for the latest news as well as for comment and analysis and here's a taste of what's already lined up for you. like one little to rule the white house says cyber security drama that could allow the u.s.
4:19 am
president to tighten the news of control over the internet. plus prying into privacy as hundreds of the u.k. schools install cameras in the most intimate places find out more in line. as in the netherlands have elected to continue on a pro european policy sticking to a german led way out of the financial crisis the conservatives claimed victory but may have to form a coalition with labor which holds similar economic however despite rejecting policies calling for an exit from the eurozone everything. looks inevitable as ever ports. the european crisis has affected the campaign period it really brought out a lot of voter sentiments that were unexpected when it comes to the dutch dutch people who are generally very pro european we've seen in the past weeks before the final week of campaigning the socialists have made
4:20 am
a huge jump at some point even the leading. front of the liberals and of the labor party however having said that a lot of observers do the fact that the dutch again are very practical people and have traditionally been centrist voters and they did vote. labor and the liberal party the prime minister margaret to having said that though the fact that the campaign has brought a lot of voter sentiment that did exist before having centrist government right now does not mean that those questions on whether they should keep helping the greeks for example or whether it should continue the way it has been. following the german lead for europe those questions will go away even if they still have a centrist government right now so i think what will happen here is the most logical is that the labor and liberal wishes of top two biggest parties here will my former coalition and it's only a practical however the question is there are differences in their approach to
4:21 am
europe should they give more money to greece or should they follow the three percent a. drastic fashion these points that will definitely have disagreements and stability there is questionable and therefore the dutch may find it a coalition government formed quite quickly but whether it will last longer than the previous government well that is still an open question. and some other news around the world somalia is elected president has shaken mahmoud has survived an assassination attempt on his second day and also this suicide bomb attack took place while the president and the visiting kenyan foreign minister were holding a news conference at least five people were killed and three more injured radical islamist group al shabaab that is affiliated with al qaeda claimed responsibility for the time saying that mahmoud election had been manipulated by western powers. at least fourteen people have been injured when a large crowd of venezuelan president hugo chavez supporters clashed with
4:22 am
opposition solo's incumbent president supporters wearing red shirts blocked a major road near the airport and torched an opposition campaign trunk this comes as the opposition's presidential candidate in next month's election have been shed to visit the region which has traditionally been for a charge it. the un's new envoy to syria is in damascus to meet with president assad on his first peace mission to the country. hopes to regulate this iteration of the water home country but said when he had to come the post that his task was almost impossible meanwhile violence between pro and anti-government forces is on the rise in the largest city of aleppo the latest battle erupted near the city's international airport which was still held by pro assad forces on sunday a car bomb attack in aleppo claimed the lives of at least thirty people. hundreds of striking miners have those the closure of all mines of american platinum the world's largest producer the company's sad it has taken its staff to
4:23 am
a safe place for their protection as labor under arrest spreads in south africa's biggest industry the country's mines haven't recent weeks been hit by an west following the police shooting of sochi for mine is during a wildcat strike at maracana mine. russia's prime. minister dmitry medvedev has said that these sentences given to the punk band pussy riot were too harsh saying keeping them behind bars any longer is unnecessary three women from the group would jail last month for two years after staging a so-called punk pray in the country's main cathedral going off reports. i was being quite frank when he said that what makes him sick and so do the hysteria and noise around this case however the prime minister did say that any jail sentence is already a tough punishment and the haps any more time for pushing right behind bars may not
4:24 am
be effective. but. the fact that these young women had been in custody for quite some time is by itself regardless of the verdict some already very serious punishment. that's regardless of the position we're taking which is staying in prison is retribution in itself under very strict months ago regarding the content of this i don't want to be a judge's substitute but in my opinion the punishment they've already put in the time they spent in custody is more than enough for them to think about what's happened to their lives whether it's because of their stupidity or because of some of the reasons. why were arrested shortly after the so. many call it an entry point and particularly seems very inside christ the savior start to drop his calls caused a huge we of criticism from christians across the whole country for many of them are serious to. waste and in august three members of pussy riot were sentenced to two years behind bars after having been found guilty of hooliganism based on
4:25 am
religious hatred but now the prime minister's words come right. court gets ready to start reviewing their appeal that's going to happen on the first of october so we'll still definitely be hearing more about the right. let's not get the latest business on day so merino there is a lot of buzz surrounding the latest i thought and i phone five that is the high justified well you know first of all it has a lot of new food. and all great and already with all that marianne cellphones are expected to. boost the u.s. economy and. you about that next hour this hour want to focus on spain because the leaders there said there's no urgency to get another bailout from europe as the country's boring costs are dropping and this of course follows europe's on precedence and moved by that from troubled countries and we spoke to financial expert patrick young and he said that this is actually not
4:26 am
a solution and it masks real economic problems a second lesson. what we're doing at the moment is essentially we've got someone who runs a pizza store and they realize that their pictures are actually not very good and nobody wants to eat it so therefore what they're going to do is they're going to find all of their pizza and pay for the french to all sit in the restaurant and therefore they'll create the idea that they don't want a few restaurant the wrong but everybody will know that it's right from pizza and actually the owners buying it from it so this whole concept of trying to throw money at a structural problem when everybody is in denial about what you do can only end with a really really ugly scenario. unless like i look at some international markets will start with europe where investors are hesitant to make any of the moves ahead of the u.s. federal reserve announced this latest policy decision we know that many investors are hoping to hear about another round of storms that have been saying we see that
4:27 am
