6:00 am
they just news on the week's top stories the egyptian president gives up his controversial new powers but stands firm on a draft constitution referendum the opposition uses to back down. as fears mounted on western nations that syria may on leash its chemical weapons to the rebels many wonder if it's all just a pretext for iraqi style invasion. israel has drawn the wrath of the international community this week with major powers and the u.n. ambassador in the country's illegal decision to extend settlement building on palestinian lands.
6:01 am
this is a weekly news review and the latest developments on kerry. egypt's president has scrapped the decree that had given him sweeping new powers and effectively put him above the law of the land but the opposition says that's not enough as a referendum on the controversial draft constitution is to shut you off for next week when the military has stepped in to act as a buffer between the warring sides it's beefing up barricades around the presidential palace just come under attack from protesters dentist all these developments his journey true. it does come as a bit of a surprise at the moment as people really think you know the president wouldn't move on his stance against the opposition forces demands yesterday and today they had a meeting which was dubbed the national dialogue meeting between political party leaders the president and his cabinet simply some of the key opposition forces the former national salvation front that are behind the protests and. it into the last few
6:02 am
weeks cannot present the results of the controversial constitutional declaration would be revoked which of course is president morsi sweeping powers this is part of one of the demands of the opposition forces and widely seen as a good move however they are rendered on the constitution which the opposition forces see to be illegitimate as it was drafted by islamist. constituent assembly would go ahead on the fifteenth and this is why the problem lies the opposition forces replied yesterday saying that the results of the meeting were meaningless as the president hasn't seen to move forward with the demand against this referendum the other group said that it was really just another form of deception this comes after the military stepped up security around the presidential palace behind me in the last two days that you see to statement yesterday saying that they were calling for dialogue as this was the only way to get the nation out of its crisis implying that perhaps they were willing to take a role in the ongoing situation in egypt we've seen quite
6:03 am
a lot of violence on the streets since this one second of november when this concept of the decree was announced by the president as rival groups have met in class which is actually the deaths of at least seven people on wednesday we have yet to see really what will happen in the coming future the president keeps by this referendum and i'm sure that the opposition forces won't move to really even though we had this development yesterday at this meeting they're still looking at the divided egypt's political deadlock. for the opposition unwilling to back down some observers say president morsi is facing a new revolution that could spiral into civil war. he knows that if the vote goes and you get more sure forces you get the constitution passed. and i think the opposition knows that he can do that there are forward they want to stop that but i do want to protest there is a leadership that was once here. they want to start the process all over again it
6:04 am
was zero actually they want a new election everyone knew harlem and new because the change was new constitution so what are you going to do you're going to try to kick them out of power if you try to change the match after you release a civil war you risk we're going the islamists into the streets as long as population in general. i don't think we're. so we're it's a very very dangerous situation and my own situation. rebel groups rebel groups from across syria are uniting under one minute trick a month and they just a western backed effort to topple president bashar assad fears are also being voiced in the west that the regime may use its chemical weapons arsenal to defeat opposition fighters something the government denies that is going to kind of vesta gates now how close is a foreign intervention. u.s.
6:05 am
officials said intelligence agencies have detected that assad's government has been preparing its chemical weapons stockpiles will possible use the obama administration's message to syria the u.s. is ready to act if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable there will be consequences. there will be consequences we have sent a an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line next how does america the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged plans citing secret intelligence for fox news confirms that syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized and at the ready the syrian government flatly denied the possibility saying they would not use such weapons against its people. we would not commit suicide we feel there's a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during
6:06 am
creasing pressure syria the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons it would give nato and some of their arab neighbors who are itching to intervene in syria the green light to go ahead with their plans the meskins itself says it would be suicidal for them to do so but with the fear and the hype building up over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in syria it seems the u.s. might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one the jumping the gun scenario is not new for the u.s. almost ten years ago the bush administration confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq america's cited bogus intelligence on saddam hussein's chemical weapons that never existed the invasion triggered a civil war that killed more than one hundred thousand innocent iraqis and years later all washington had to say about this was the president thought it was correct congress thought it was of course i regret that it turned out a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion the us media was
6:07 am
instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never had any proof ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair cheney and bush are right now that the us has drawn a red line on syria it has made it clear it's ready to take action but how i'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of. credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to. take action if that eventuality were to occur two american warships are already near the syrian coast with some ten thousand. u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american
6:08 am
german and dutch batteries of patriot anti-aircraft missiles to turkey's border with syria meaning hundreds more u.s. and european troops will be deployed to the frontier nato says deploying patriot missiles along syria's borders is a defensive step to prevent syria from attacking turkey i don't think there's any requirement whatsoever for patriot batteries on the ground in turkey again the patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming theater ballistic missiles or aircraft the syrians are not going to attack the turks the church of the most powerful military establishment in the region the largest army in nato and intervention in syria will be as bad if not worse than what we experienced in iraq the pentagon said they would need seventy five thousand troops to secure syria's weapons of mass destruction the question on everyone's mind is are they seriously considering that kind of a mess of intervention because that could mean another you rock coming soon and the invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm
6:09 am
going to check on. meanwhile another troubling video appeared on the internet this week the unverified footage shows what's claimed to be a rebel fighter using chemical weapons on that right it's off the test a mosque the man then threatens to use the poison so what does that sound reasonable. well there are almost every moment you will die like these two rabbits you were enemies of allah you see them they were killed by our chemical and biological weapons your destiny will be like them because you are supporters of bashar assad god is great. with just a few minutes here and out here in tears ambition once a slice or two for the recess the south china sea. explorer fares. and the media circus surrounding the pregnancy of the duchess of cambridge makes a fateful turn. in

the glow of russia's no four way from civilization and history are one helicopter treat from the nearest village. they still don't family have been living here for a long time in tents and they don't reindeer skins. soviets. lodging runs in a signal and then it's they also grew up in the two but left it at the age of six

sometimes a similar. british . market. what's really happening to the global economy.
6:13 am
this is. if you. continue. the move provoked a quick response from the united nations which said it would be a favor to any future. as we've repeatedly said certain months are illegal under international law. he has repeated his call on all concerned to resume negotiations and
6:14 am
intensify efforts towards a comprehensive just and lasting peace and also in the interests of peace any plans specifically for the one must be rescinded. why the decision to authorize more settled homes that came after last week's un vote upgrading the diplomatic status of the palestinians bringing them a step closer to achieving full statehood israel was founded saying the west bank was trying to avoid direct peace talks by seeking u.n. recognition the british m.p. jeremy corbyn says israel is risking losing international support. seem simply to have not cottoned onto the fact that the vast majority of the rest of the world support the right of palestine which just supports the right of palestinians and therefore not to want to take to the west bank two state solution is something
6:15 am
that everyone is that wonderful signed up to but the reality on the ground of still not having complete free movement in and out and the huge number of settlements across the west bank on the settler roads and of course the problems of east jerusalem suggest that it's quite difficult to achieve it unless there's a real will to withdraw the settlements and allow palestine to develop and i don't see that will at all with netanyahu if he can't even rely on governments that are basically quite sympathetic to israel and israel's claims then he's losing out big time all around the world and he just needs to wake up i think the washington support will weigh in very quickly obama has been reelected and the reelected president into a second term is at his most powerful and i think that netanyahu might do well to remember that he also very much involved yourself in the internal politics the usa during the election campaign of that can't even do it himself very much the administration the movement around the world for palestine for palestinian people
6:16 am
is unprecedented netanyahu should wake up and recognize that. well he was in finance ministers have boosted spain's the beleaguered banks by proving a forty billion rescue package for them back in june the same minister said they were ready to provide aid of up to one hundred billion euros despite the recession madrid is trying to costs to avoid asking for something of a doubt that's politician two on monday says the spanish government has the crisis in itself. there is a fundamental flaw in the banking system which. the government has basically taken over the banks the greed of the banking cartel degree of the central bank they allow banks to print money that is not covered by anything the government intervening too much in the market. and the way to solve that problem by government withdrawing by shrinking the role of government by getting government to spend less tax less and regulate less that is what will comic back in order and that's what.
6:17 am
the job great growth again and unemployment is here. so. failing companies being supported by government is only a very short term solution in the long term it is a disaster. now police in the u.k. are refusing to release details about the death of a nurse who would actually committed suicide after a prank call about the pregnant duchess of cambridge news of the nurse's death and i did fuel to the fire as media speculation about the royal baby reached the pitch artie's twenty point reports. all this taking place against a backdrop of intense media speculation a real media circus the whole pos week over news that kate middleton is pregnant we've seen discussions about whether or not kate could be having twins if kate has twins which of the babies potential babies would be the ones succeeding to the
6:18 am
throne if it was if they were delivered by c. section it would be the physician potentially deciding it is the successor to the british monarchy we've seen bookmakers taking bets on what this baby might be called predictions that this will already be the most popular name in britain as soon as the name is announced all this you know when we've got real news taking place in syria political crisis in egypt and. the press much more interested in kate middleton's acute morning sickness i'm joined by cost curve in the studio here with me he's a london journalist who's been following the story cost a tragic wake up call to the sri yeah. it certainly should be. very very tragic circumstance under which are still under investigation by the police but the real issue is of course the media which boots are out of proportion i believe that you know we're still going to the story broke the devoted fourteen its first
6:19 am
fourteen or thirteen pages of the newspaper one of the most read newspapers in the country to the royal baby we've just had the leveson inquiry a damning report about the state of the british media and now this you know is this more criticism for the british media in the way it's following these stories while there is other news. taking place into internationally well again it should be but it isn't because the media is trying to deflect attention away and is calling for the hanging of the to australian great radio deejays the media is not questioning the amount of coverage they are devoting to your family and what consequences that this may have an if it individuals life if we had a media which was more reasoned with this when it happens if the suicide is actually proven to be related to what happened but they have it now the juke and duchess of cambridge have said that deeply saddened by the news the tragic news of this the death of the royal not so what should have been a joy for the pregnancy announcement has been you know some say because of the
6:20 am
disproportionate media coverage turned into a very tragic news story. will tell you in prime minister mario monti who heads a non-elected cabinet of technocrats says he plans to resign the news came just hours after the country's former pm silvio berlusconi announced he's to run for office in next year's parliamentary elections one of the. people of freedom party withdrew its support from the government he says montes policies and harmed italy and that he hoped to lead the country out of the financial crisis and seventy six year old has already served as italy's prime minister for three separate terms he's currently caught up in a number of scandals including tax fraud convictions which he's appealing and accusations of paying for sex with an underage prostitute something he denies. but as well in president who are chavez has announced he's suffering from cancer once again but he says tests showed return of some malignant cells in the same area
6:21 am
where tumors had been previously removed he said to return to cuba where he's already received cancer treatment to undergo surgery in the coming days but news comes two months after travers was elected as president in a tight vote. beijing has warned india against pursuing all exploration in the disputed that resource rich south china sea it comes in reaction to this week's statements by india's navy chief who announced his country could go as far as sending warships to the area to protect its economic interests europe is going off investigating the claims. as china and india rise economically their military muscles are growing as well both need energy to keep that kind of growth going and that may be putting the two asian giants on a collision course because of the mess that nationalism the indian government cannot afford to be seem to be weak in dealing with china obviously a higher power with government. over two hundred billion barrels of oil and large
6:22 am
amounts of natural gas that's more than the vast majority of the world's energy rich nations have all hidden under the south china sea china claims most of the territory for itself but india has also managed to get access by buying a stake in a vietnamese gas field shortly after hanoi accuse chinese boat of sandwich dodging exploration india warned it's ready to use force to defend its interests or for me as i said they choose not to lead to a longer term conflict but you know it's it's a new inevitable because all these countries now large missions are becoming global actors and players both china and india have been pumping billions of u.s. dollars into their armies and navies holding drills on a regular basis and beijing has also announced its police will soon start to board and inspect foreign vessels surely the vast oil reserves in the south china sea are
6:23 am
just too big of a crash for neither trying out working here to pass up what i really want a conflict between the two economic powerhouses says it may be a game that neither can win the two asian giants can't afford any weaknesses and that would make it easier for other countries to take a bite of the vast resources the u.s. has long been increasing its economic and military presence in the region this in yes there west strike to pick this expansion by both china last. four goals that. good lesson that the world is a military clash so if the two eastern powerhouses can't share nicely they catch me they will go to some other players already prowling on the sidelines you got this going all of our team. coming up next the gold rush in colombia where the search for the legendary lost city of eldorado continues.
