reports of fresh violence in egypt as mohamed morsy supporters clash with his opponents near the presidential palace where both sides have to hold mass rallies. no relief for bridgend as the country's finance minister is along that already angry conflict that five more years of a surgery and cuts ahead. and israel refuses to comply with u.n. demands that it open its unacknowledged nuclear facilities for inspection and join the nonproliferation treaty calling the general assembly vote void.
you're watching are too good to have you with us we start in egypt where the standoff between mohamed morsi and egypt's opposition has caused a new al breaks of violence supporters of the country's leader have reportedly clash with its opponents near the presidential palace where both parties have called rallies the muslim brotherhood is running morsy supporters after tens of thousands took part in an opposition march on his palace on tuesday night car based porter has more. i was that in the march tenth that tens of thousands of protesters coming from various locations in cairo converging in front of the presidential palace in this suburb of cairo when they got there they were greeted by police behind barbed wire and really i mean speaking of the protesters they felt like they wanted to protest the walls of the presidential palace to the president not to what they said was a bunch of police so what happened is they broke through the barbed wire which
obviously was meant to tear gas so quite close to gas by the police who actually fled eventually and the tens of thousands of protesters continue to meet and have their protests in front of the rules right now as you can see behind me got an ongoing sit in the hundreds that sleeping in paris square and in addition we've got hundreds outside the presidential palace also staging a sit in the national salvation front which is the kurdish opposition forces they have three points that they put towards president morsi the first one is for this contentious constitutional declaration which she issued last week which awards him sweeping powers to be rescinded the second one is the referendum on the constitution what's happened recently is of course that the egypt's constitution was written very fast we passed by the president to put to referendum which many people see quite a bad move by the president if they believe that the assembly that wrote the constitution is in fact going to just submit their asking for this referendum which
is due to take place next week to be canceled the third point is for a new constituent assembly one representative of egypt what happens was during that process of drafting the constitution majority of the leftist liberals and church representatives staged a mass recount of the assembly saying that they were bullied by the islamist dominated body into writing a kind of constitution they don't like we've got quite a few made to say sectors of egypt. which are joining the protests for example yesterday we saw a journalist striking at least fourteen newspapers in different need t.v. channels refused to publish yesterday in protest of what they said was impingement on press freedoms and freedoms of expression edition we have a judicial strike which has been ongoing there are since the constitution that gratian was announced we have also seen supports all the presidents on the brotherhood is organization we still must run these on suffered
a organize by division brotherhood an ultra conservative groups so we're really seeing is a divided country. the longer the deadlock between president and the opposition in egypt goes on the greater the danger things could spiral out of control let us know where you think the standoff might actually lead by taking part in our poll at our dot com and here's how the vote looks so far a third of those who had this say believe the gyptian leader will cancel his new decrees in order to stay in office just over a quarter think the new wave of anti-government protests will result in further instability leading to a libya style we're slightly left see the current situation will lead to the military and its president mubarak's clique coming back to the column and finally in less than fifteen percent are convinced morsi is resignation and new elections line evitable let us know what you think at our team dot com. the u.s. is preparing to send patriot missiles to turkey after nato approved
a plan to defend itself against potential missile attacks from inside syria and america is also pressuring iraq which is surging syria bound planes for weapons even demanding a grants pass in jets baghdad isn't enthusiastic as marina bought my reports. as the syrian government struggles to stay in power fighting against rebels backed by the west america is also attempting to suffocate the alleged weapons flying into damascus washington accuses iran of being the key arms supplier to assad forces and to stop the transfer the us is now reportedly demanding that baghdad inspect planes flying from iran over its airspace into syria and their american government unfortunately. very strong. in many other countries this is just one more amazing thing is that government is saying that they can control flights over countries in force. force or.
by doing so the u.s. has created something of a paradox forcing iraq to prevent iran from dealing with syria by bringing up this issue of so-called weapons supplied to just another way to pressure the baghdad regime united states feel that it's not invested blood and treasure in terms of overthrowing saddam hussein that it has the right if not the obligation to move in order the internal affairs of the baghdad regime obviously. objects to this kind of approach and i daresay that the iraqi people object to that approach as well the names u.s. officials have complained that baghdad is not doing enough to cooperate with washington's demands since september iraq has only managed to allegedly inspect two iranian planes baghdad does not have an air force and grounding planes is proving too costly as they must be refueled after each check recently iraq made it clear
that it is not willing to march to the beat of america's drum in an interview with the new york times iraq's minister of transportation said quote we are an independent country and our stance is clear we will search whichever plane. we want whenever we want we will not take orders i think. our most countries during the. treatment of the american government. don't feel the same or. nearly one decade after saddam hussein was ousted by the us led invasion into iraq washington is pressuring a new governor of the very same country to help the leader of a different as america continue supporting syria's opposition in part by policing iran iraq for its all to march in lock step with borders has pretty something of a middle east triangle the white house may not be able to navigate greenup or not
artsy. turkish troops and helicopters have pondered the kurdish area near the border with syria killing thirteen suspected militants the crosses there is being seen as a chance for could have aspirations for independence and statehood and whether the turks are actually shooting themselves in the food by supporting the syrian uprising is a subject up for debate in the latest episode of cross talk coming up next hour. britain is facing at least five more years of a stereotype the country's finance minister says there's no miracle cure for the country's economy the highly anticipated autumn statement by george osborne abroad little relief for public already angered by government cuts for more on the story i'm joined now live by sarah further from london sara what exactly did the chancellor say about the measures the u.k. public will face. it's taking time but quality is healing
those are pretty much the first words out of the george osborne's mouth that was meant to love in the houses of parliament it's the way he tells them isn't it i mean he then delivered us in this autumn statement the red is a kind of mini budget the following has in fact been revised up that is rising not falling and the person can't settle in for more spending cuts more cost of welfare and all stereotype all the way to twenty eighteen and despite all of that he still tried to convince us that the government are making some progress now it wasn't particularly bright autumn statement no one was expecting that we were expecting this her cluing me forecast for the economic future but it was pretty tough and of course as we said the chancellor trying to convince people that things are actually working that they're pushing ahead with
a similar plan that many people are saying is simply failing. he's definitely not up to the job and hasn't been right from the outset what he has is an ideology which is about dismantling an important welfare state and making sure that those that are on high incomes are protected. you know sarah we hear how hard people are still struggling in the u.k. else when euro but what does this statement actually mean in real terms of all the people. well you know all across britain right now people are going to be watching this in their homes businesses they're going to be have been watching what the chancellor saying very very closely in trying to figure out now as we came away with a different facts and figures exactly what that means is than in real terms now in that respect when you listen to the autumn statement a very concerning part of that speech that george osborne delivered was when he spoke about welfare really we saw the conservative attack on welfare continuing i
listened to the language in the rhetoric that was used there he talked about fairness but then he said fairness also needs to be about the person who leaves home in the morning and looks over to their neighbor he's asleep living a life on benefits i'm not sure how much george osborne really knows about living on benefits that i can tell you is not much of a life r.c. has spent the last couple of months investigating exactly what is going on with the case welfare sisters and it's a miserable failure all round the work program figures released a week or so ago failing the people on benefits and recently sent a new rule for people on disability benefits who are going to perhaps be forced into unpaid work i mean it really smacks of back to the days of the british workhouses and it is incredibly concerning and you know i'm not pulling any punches said the state of the welfare system in this country right now is that diabolical and in the coming years you're going to have some horrendous stories coming out
about these people the most vulnerable in our society suffering and really if you go into the detail of what george osborne is saying today it seems that the most vulnerable in society are going to be the ones who are in fact going to have to pay for this continual ceratin and make no mistake they have really going to suffer this is an austerity program this not even halfway three and we still have more cuts ahead of us more cuts the spending more cuts to welfare and more real pain for the people in this country sarah i can tell how this is affecting you tougher times ahead for all brits and it's going to be an even tougher end of the thank you very much for the reporting live from london. why do we have more from the u.k. ahead with a look at how london's mayor has voiced what many brits have long been thinking i'm at the e.u. school teaming financial crisis ahead of the british capital or in the u.k. to hold a referendum over the country's membership making the exit

a un resolution calling on it to open up its nuclear facilities for inspection as a meaning less than mechanical vote the general assembly of all me back to proposal calling on israel to join the nuclear nonproliferation treaty israel has never officially admitted it possesses atomic weapons although if you doubt its fully armed as artie's policy or reports. it's a story that has all the ingredients and intrusion of a hollywood blockbuster nucleus nagging a hollywood producer and an israeli prime minister it's a story that here in tel aviv the authorities don't want to talk about but two israeli americans have put pen to paper it's probably the least best kept secret in the world on center stage is on on mulch and a hollywood producer and israeli undercover agent who's alleged to have smuggled nuclear triggers from the united states into israel a california engineer richard kelly smith says he was recruited by most in the
early seventy's smith was later convicted in the united states of running an american front company to help move. the story first surface to be i files released at the end of last year and in joseph goldman's tell all book confidential this was a very limited operation in fact when the account which is the hebrew acronym for science liaison bureau with the nablus even the assad was unaware of its existence and only it was basically created behind the back of this with the purity of. only of this year the f.b.i. released these documents from a seven year investigation which began in one thousand nine hundred five they show how a network of front companies connected to these weighty defense ministry smuggled nuclear triggers out of the united states to israel what's apparent in the documents is that the israeli ministry of defense would place an order for prohibited items with an israeli company called he light trading the light trading is where benjamin netanyahu worked and would meet with richard kelly smith. when he
visited israel then they would transfer the order to an organization called milko in california to fulfill the order violating export control act and shipping the triggers out of the united states they called it the operation project printer all the allegations are based on smith's testimony and many have been surprised by the detail if you take a look at the documents netanyahu is definitely mentioned in the documents and that's what surprised us because typically. you get two types of sensors of this type of document sometimes a block off an entire page sometimes of this block of a name in this case netanyahu his name is clearly stated in the documents in the documents it is alleged netanyahu asked mulch and the hollywood producer not to discuss the matter publicly in a written response to r.t.
the israeli foreign ministry denied all allegations on the other side of the story aside from the leaked documents washington today is keeping quiet israeli new kid capabilities are some of the most guarded secrets the u.s. government holds far more secrets some would argue then information it has about iran but for the foreseeable future the book on israel's nuclear secrets is closed policy or r.t. israel. so today we take you to a wooden city that emerges only once a year and only a week before once again being wiped without a trace from the face of the year.
