5:03 am
who are out in the streets to the people in egypt now truly are is that. religion and politics should not be mixed clearly and some nations would use slam and religion to get the support of the people and once the are being in a very very differently from what the have been promising and that's. one of the reasons of their anger you seeing to the industry to egypt. americans want some risk of it indeed to insure and secure their interest in egypt but now their pictures and the reality has shown that actually muslim. does not have. the support of the majority of people in egypt now there is only one party that's
5:04 am
actually will decide what's happening in egypt and that's the people of egypt neither the united states nor morsi himself much say and what's happening to the people of egypt who are back in the street. we see the freaks of the regime today. are saying to humans are here and are with the rest escalating in egypt support sayad it's after according cairo has sentenced twenty one people to death for their role in football riots last year that left seventy four people dead so twenty one sentenced to death let's or let's get some more and ask whether he's me a correspondent peter bell true standing by for us in cairo bill good to see you so quickly this is considered by some to be a very harsh verdict from the egyptian court how are you reading into it. i hope you can hear me we're talking about these are twenty one people sentenced to
5:05 am
death for their role in football riots last year that left seventy four dead some are saying it's a very very tough verdict from the gyptian court what do you say on the. absolutely has been perceived as extremely harsh sentence the death sentence for twenty one people this is the met with violent scenes in port side at the moment we've seen of course the death at least one police officer to read critical condition we have reports that one hundred fifty people have been injured in the last two weeks on the ground are saying we're seeing civilians with automatic weapon weapons running around the streets attacking security forces here in cairo the scenes are actually relatively jubilant as the old who's the hardcore people found see this is very much a victory this of course quite a politicized verdict at the time of the disaster and people said that the security officials themselves had quite a lot to do with the massacre as the that the rival protest groups or the rival
5:06 am
fanclub groups meet in the center of the pitch and. blocked access. to people is saying that really the security officials themselves should be the ones that receive this verdict not just the fans aside from the story about the twenty one people sentenced to death for their role in the football riots last year let's talk about the unrest and i suppose the the unhappy being seen quite clearly in the iconic square more clashes ongoing between police and government protesters and friday what is the situation like on the ground where you are now. well as i came to the studio there are. clashes just on the corner of the tree on the periphery of to here between protesters and security forces who are throwing rocks at each other behind me here to here people still remain in tents they say they will not leave until the president mohamed morsi and makes changes the opposition coalition the national salvation front released for the mind yesterday including
5:07 am
asking asking the president to step down the national salvation government to take to take over the multiple is supposed to be mostly in place across the country's road to kill or in serious we had at least over two hundred people injured yesterday across nine governorates so what we're seeing yesterday really was a lot of anger against the president and his government on the second anniversary of the uprising and further protest sit ins and possible violence across the country added to that as well margin will be talking to the not go to a not so distant future bill true the reporter in cairo thanks very much for coming on. now egypt was one of the first states in the arab world the u.s. was said to have nudged towards democracy through revolt president obama had some of his highest ratings there but has now witnessed a sharp drop in popularity it's seen as a sign that washington has failed to define a consistent policy in the region. looks at why the perception of the u.s.
5:08 am
in the muslim world has now become so but i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world words of promise that field a region with hope but as obama begins his second term in office his critics failed him want to first one that fell far short of expectations of progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stalled the promised economic development of afghanistan never took root. and american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't fifty the u.s. and eligible community has more or less thought that it was in control of something called the muslim brotherhood and they brought them from egypt into saudi arabia and i think they thought they could just break out of that was it all they could have. my last r.t. or last and their fight now that i'm not leaking oil also. in libya the u.s.
5:09 am
supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance for security entry and rights but the fallout from it ended with the death of the american ambassador and three other members of his staff the united states was overselling their so-called triumph over al qaida in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it was essentially setting the united states up for situations where. elsewhere was still not just strong but getting stronger and was getting stronger because of policies that the united states had followed and it was washington's politics that did little to win palestinians over to obama's side washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not surprising aniston's i would say that the people in general.
5:10 am
stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do all do us any favor or any good we realize that all our expectation which were very high turned out to be zero as a matter of fact islamophobia inside the united states is on the increase helped in no small part of by the growing negative portrayal of the muslim world in the media and hollywood recent polls show overall confidence in obama has dropped especially in muslim countries where it declined by nine percent in three years global approval of his international policies is also decreased from a positive rating of thirty four percent in the muslim world in two thousand and nine to just fifteen percent in two thousand and twelve. obama came just to beautified the ugly face that bush left it's american interests that lead american presidents the only difference is that one president smiles the other doesn't and
5:11 am
the american system and the american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not the issue it is a political issue and that's why i didn't have a lot of hope that the arab antipathy has not been softened by obama's support for the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few american presidents have lost a good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as a bomber for him now to renew trust in america he'll have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. now a former cia agent who oversaw the capture of the man thought to be al qaeda is third in command has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for leaking classified intelligence john kiriakou was the first to blow the whistle on washington's torture program later appealing the name of an alleged torture at guantanamo bay the cia has denied the accusations referring instead to enhanced interrogation techniques details on this to what is
5:12 am
going to education. the cia veteran the former chief of counterterrorism operations in pakistan john kiriakou will spend thirty months in prison for leaking the identity of an agent but before he was prosecuted basically after had been actively speaking out against torture and now he and his supporters believe that he was prosecuted for coming clean over torture practices in the cia it started with an investigation into how military defense attorneys acquired tunnel bay obtained the names and photographs of cia personnel as though it is eventually tracked one name back to a reporter who had spoken to mr. rather than risk a far longer prison term and because he could no longer afford these legal fees they stick it out when a cobra agreed to plead guilty to one of the five charges against him violating the intelligence identities protection act by e-mailing the name of a covert cia officer to a freelance reporter who never even published it there's something very disturbing about this case had john actually engaged in torture he wouldn't be in any trouble
5:13 am
at all he never even would have been investigated because he talked about torture with reporters he is going to prison the fact of the matter is that the u.s. government has classified everything related to its torture practices which means nobody can be prosecuted for human rights violations that were systematic of systematically committed at one comment here is what mr get out will says about that i never tortured anybody. but i'm getting to prison while the torture is in the lives of people who are rude and the people who deceived and the man who destroyed the tapes will never sees justice and that's the saddest part of the story. this administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous administrations combined while protecting those who have committed torture who have ordered torture behind this wall of classification contrary to popular belief president obama didn't stop the united states from torturing he just stopped it
5:14 am
from torturing on his watch through an executive order which means that the us could be only another executive order away from some other president or vice president deciding to torture again. this is odd to talk about being under the cover of fashion when us designed unveils clothing to protect your privacy later in the program here we'll be showing you the outfits that make you invisible surveillance drone also ahead for you. i'll take that as a yes. i don't know i haven't really thought about it a lot is resident north oftenest asked people in the big apple whether the use o. file sharing is a sin or a win that's coming your way after this very. good leverage surely was to build the world's most sophisticated.
5:15 am
doesn't sound anything mission to teach creation why it should care about humans. this is why you should care only on the. wealthy british style sun it's time to. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger on. at the global financial headlines kaiser report.
5:16 am
two fifteen on saturday afternoon here in moscow this is r.t. and the bad news is the u.k. may be sliding back into recession this for the third time in four years the latest g.d.p. figures are even worse than expected and the british economy shrank by zero point three percent in the fourth quarter of twenty twelve and achieved zero growth for the whole year at the ucas finance minister george osborne described it as quote a very difficult economic situation he said with debts building up at home and problems with the eurozone the u.k. has to confront many issues and the director of the institute of economic affairs in london mark littlewood he says the british government frankly is not doing enough. of course we bear in mind when you look back actually a couple of years later often these numbers are revised up or down so we shouldn't
5:17 am
really trust them to the very last decimal point what we've seen it appears over twenty twelve is not the british economy absolutely tanking but basically flat lining and that is pretty much been the picture for the last two years it's not a crushing recession but it's certainly not apparent back certainly what the coalition government here in the u.k. are doing isn't working if the aim is to produce growth rates of two or three percent and indeed the government's independent forecasters suggested two years ago that we would be experiencing those sort of levels and growth of growth of the u.k. economy about now and i'm afraid that has turned out to be a pipe dream but let's be clear about this austerity that use a lot just saying that the u.k. government has persuaded itself and most of the media and all of their political opponents to get that there is some savage program of spending cuts being undertaken in the united kingdom that's
5:18 am
a long way from the truth when you actually look at the numbers rather than the political rhetoric the government is cutting spending by about one percent a year a pretty trivial amount and they are taking far too long to bring the budget back into balance they also need i think a clearer plan but what's really going to attract business investment in the u.k. and what's going to make it easier for entrepreneurs. this is r.t. moscow russia's parliament gives the first nod to a ban on the promotion of homosexuality among children is prompting scuffles right outside the state duma here in the capital between gay rights supporters who are planning a protest kissin and their opponents are closely following the events at r.t. dot com. also online for you watch out getting some air in san francisco could mean somebody is watching you and the city's street lights are being equipped to spy on passes. by. for now with drones monitoring americans from the
5:19 am
skies in the name of national security many across the u.s. are seriously concerned about protecting their privacy it is predicted up to thirty thousand drones will be protecting the nation by twenty twenty likely though there could be a trendy solution for those unwilling to be watched artes and i start the designer of so-called counter surveillance fashion. keeping a close eye on civilians with a little help from drones. in a move approved by congress in seven years the u.s. will help thirty thousand mr drones monitoring its territory from the air that opens the door for a lot of abuses of privacy. from not just the government but corporations and businesses too. in a fight for privacy this new york designer came up with a counter surveillance clothing line intended to shield people from those watchful lenses a burka a scarf and a hoodie are the key garments in the collection this is a garment that's designed to be thermally reflective of which means that he bounces
5:20 am
off it and he does what suits for thermal imaging in particular this technology is used a lot on drones and he would use if there were drawings harboring about manhattan anybody who is out on the street is clearly traceable the idea of this collection is that putting on something like this. is a bit are. these parts of your body become very hard to detect. from a potential fashion statement to a technology that could eventually be used in rescue operations or even on a battlefield i think we're just thing. a market hasn't been addressed yet it's a new area and it's sort of a crossover between tactical and fashion it adds a little extra coverage to the face out of harvey calls his consumer market i'm fashionably paranoid if you appear to me and i can see you i'm quite alright with
5:21 am
that but if you appear in an automated systems and how it becomes a little more to your disadvantage because this data can be easily mind tracked and identified another counter-surveillance item in the collection the off pocket for a phone once a mobile device is put inside there are no more signals going in and out the strength of the cell phone signal out of one. hundred goes down to zero in seconds the metalized fabric and that acts as a ferret in a cage to block the signals from the phone adam says this is a faster way to turn off your phone and block trucking since the introduction of the patriot act and since then there's been a large erosion of privacy i would say is. confined to the us either and this is a global problem to start a conversation and make people more aware of the growing trend of surveillance through fashion is adam's goal the designer admits the clothing line is not for everybody but those who want to adapt to these new realities could now be
5:22 am
a step closer to avoiding the gaze of big brother and especially if you're going to a party in york it's good to have you with us here in oz for you today russia has completed the modernization of an indian diesel electric submarine it was handed over to india's navy at the shipyard in northern russia now the submarine has been upgraded to under a contract signed in twenty ten it has undergone a complete overhaul with russian specialists improving its control systems and installing misawa complex the shipyard has already upgraded four other diesel electric submarines for india its plan the latest will leave for mumbai in three days. all right let's get to some other global news for you a brief time for the antiwar dot there let's start in venezuela where at least fifty people have been killed in a recent clash in the city of barak you see met there ninety others were reportedly wounded by gunshots the riot was sparked by a local media t.v. news report that troops had been sent to the prison to search for weapons the jail
