teehee. the bloodbath in egypt continues as crowds storm a prison where twenty one inmates a sentenced to death for that part of the football stadium massacre last year it's amid continuing clashes after the deadly marking the second anniversary of the revolution that toppled hosni mubarak. as egypt ignites again we look into how america's newly reelected president managed to turn high expectations to anger and approval ratings across the middle east. and the u.k. is a risk of entry uncharted territory with a triple dip recession as new figures show the country's economy shrank again in the last quarter of two thousand and twelve.
12:01 pm
around the world on line on screen live from the new center here in moscow this is all t. with the twenty four hours a day at least twenty eight people including police offices and two football players have reportedly been killed in egypt's port saïd where crowds have attempted to storm the prison rampages continue throughout the city following the execution order against twenty one people accused of stirring up last year's stadium violence in the city which claimed seventy four lives correspondent bill true is in cairo with the latest the violence continues in egypt city of port saeed we've now heard that dozens have been killed hundreds have been injured after this very contentious verdicts the army have been deployed to the streets there with this is a missing tanks in addition the police forces have reportedly shut access to the city trains are being stopped at least one stop before to the new one cannot.
12:02 pm
actually and meanwhile here in the capital the ultra ultra hardcore football fans who were the ones targeted in the massacre in february last year had cuban scenes when they heard the verdict a gathering at their headquarters saying finally justice had been president mohamed morsi council travel plans. and has been meeting with the national defense council to try and come up with a way of resolving this deepening crisis i've just come from a street off square where the clashes continue between protesters and security forces spilling over from of course the clashes yesterday on the second anniversary of joinery can you find revolution speaking to people in the clashes and also those behind me here in tahrir square they're saying they're still very upset with the president who they believe has not made any changes opposition coalition the national salvation front had a press conference recently and declared five demands saying they believe the present moment morsi is not capable of bringing the country that called for
12:03 pm
a national salvation government to take over in the interim early presidential elections and then also announce they will be boycotting the parliamentary elections which is said to happen in april so there's a lot of anger here just from a political level as well as from a street level in the background of continuing violence and division across the country. well for instance updates right from the egyptian capital where bell has literally just come under a tear gas attack you can follow her on twitter at bell true. colors show me he's editor of old newspaper says the people of egypt have grown increasingly disillusioned with the politics of the muslim brotherhood. we voted for him to be a good chance. to be a last resort or for most of the people who are out in the streets to the people in egypt now do realize that. religion and politics should be mixed
12:04 pm
clearly and some. would use slam and religion to get the support of the people and once the are being would in the very very differently from what the been promoting and thus far one of the reasons of their anger you seeing to the industry to egypt americans want to ensure and secure their interest in egypt but now the neither the united states nor morsi himself much say in what's happening today the people of egypt who are back in the street that. is why the fate of the regime in egypt was at the forefront of the pro-democracy uprisings in the middle east the us supported the results hoping that barack obama's promise of change for the
12:05 pm
region would bear fruit however after a wave of anti-american protests all the hopes his famous courage speech try to inspire have been dashed. investigates why 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 every generous hope. but as obama begins his second term in office his critics failed him on a first term f.-l. hotshot of expectations progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stored 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 ellen just 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. asked are was or are and their fight now that i'm not leaking oil
12:06 pm
also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance for blood 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-qaeda in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it was essentially setting the united states up for situations where al qaeda 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 bomb aside washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not
12:07 pm
surprising and steams i would say that the people in general. stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do and all do us any favor or any good realize that all our expectations 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 beautified the ugly face that bush left it's american interests that lead american presidents
12:08 pm
the only difference is that while one president smiles the other doesn't. american system and american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not a personal 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 a promise of the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few american presidents have lost their good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as a bomber for him now to renew trust in america will have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tell of a. former cia officer john kiriakou has been sentenced to two and a half years behind bars for leaking classified intelligence his supporters of course for the sentence to be reduced saying the real reason behind the punishment was him going public on washington's torture tactics but a federal judge rejected arguments he was acting as a whistleblower when he leaked
12:09 pm
a covert agents name to a reporter by e-mail to a cia veteran retired in two thousand and four and was outspoken about the use of secret interrogations and waterboarding by the us you could have been sentenced to eight years in prison had he not secured a plea deal with prosecutors author and activist sibel edmonds believes that insiders will be targeted and punished for making a stand as long as u.s. authorities continue to cover up wrongdoing and with that we do see this type of witch hunt action against those who leak information that exposes either government criminality or government waste fraud abuse so this is a selective behind he has had a single case where was the glorious happy success all by actor suing doors so whole channels rigging remedies or solutions that these very big problems wrongdoings so when you have no. there is only one option and that is to take that
12:10 pm
information and put it before the public whether it's through websites such as we see leaks or public citizens journalists because as you know mainstream media they act as the extension of the government here in the united states there are no other channels to go to and the public has their right to know and they give gag is a very important point the public and i'm not talking about only people here in the united states but all over the world because people are being a fact that they are doing wives who are being criminalized. the loudest thing coming from the historic baikonur cosmodrome a very true it's not been the rule of russian rockets but rather a row over the environmental impact because it stands millions in a threatening to derail russia's entire space program that will only my colleague spoke to me about the story baikonur has been the launch pad for the first soviet and russian space exploration program of course men's first ever space
12:11 pm
flight took off from that very base but now from that a lustrous past it's facing an uncertain future with speculation of could even be abandoned now most course currently leasing the cosmodrome for a hefty annual fee of over one hundred million dollars but it's fears of environmental damage that's causing concern for the kazakhs more specifically they are concerned over the launch of proton rockets which with the fuel tanks which are shed by the craft after liftoff containing traces of rocket fuel which would you believe it is highly toxic but for moscow's point of view the huge annual rental fee together with the jobs provided to local people make the leasing arrangements a highly positive one for us tonight but just days ago both the russian and foreign ministers tried to gloss over any signs of friction they have assured the media that any so-called space war is not happening and a mutual agreement has been reached for the future between the two countries many people know nasa budget has certainly been slashed by washington although india and
12:12 pm
china have got surging space programs we know that russia now really has the busiest space program in the world that must mean they have some we must have some pretty big plans for the near or not too distant future russia does keep its options open first of all the are working on the new cosmodrome which is called of us torch me it means eastern in russian and as you may have guessed it's going to be located in the far east near the border with china and the construction has begun just two years ago and russian space agency also. so should have two of its launch pads fully operational by twenty fifteen twenty eight seen at the latest and that will mark the beginning of the most ambitious step for the country's space exploration program in decades to the moon by twenty twenty says most adding they want to establish lunar bases and finish it all off with a manned trip to mars by twenty thirty and if these plans seem too otherworldly to
12:13 pm
you well they certainly do not look as such to the russian government which has approved a budget through trillion rubles that's roughly seventy five billion dollars for the space industry until twenty twenty. during not just a veil over your own privacy you can check out the clothing that would turn on the skies if you could see them the cloak of invisibility is coming away a little later plus i. think people take it as the governor. should we should we take it more serious. music new york resident downloads local opinion whether it's right to follow share. after the short break. good leverage or. to build the most sophisticated.

12:16 pm
a couple of years later often these numbers are revised up or down so we shouldn't 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 a parent's back certainly what the coalition government here in the u.k. are doing isn't working if the item is to produce growth rates or two or three percent and indeed the government's independent forecasters suggested two years ago that we would be experiencing those sort of levels in growth in the u.k. economy about now and i'm afraid that has turned out to be a part rate but let's be clear about this austerity that that use a lot does seem that the u.k. government has persuaded itself and most of the media and all of their political opponents to that there is some savage program of spending cuts being undertaken in
12:17 pm
the united kingdom that's 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 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. well the movers and shakers of the money world the been debating the future of the global economy at the annual form in davos caught up with russia's tycoon owner get a pass for an exclusive interview the full version will air on sunday but here's a preview of what he had to say about russia's economic reality. russia not just moscow russia not just resource sector you know russia is a waste to put you into you know from where do us talk to some peters from our good culture and of course you know we should have been a better financial system but no one could grow its i'm not sure it's not enough to
