11:02 pm
across these three count these three cities the misfeature president mohammed morsi also said to be a curfew course the city's between nine pm and six am and he also called for dialogue with the opposition things that just escalated to a great extent tear in cairo the clashes continue between anti government protesters and security forces who are firing an excessive amount to get to the point where even at this height it's almost impossible to breathe but i've seen people wanting parts past me many are unconscious people carrying are injured protesters back into the square it's a safety of course that continues to be violence across the country in serious for example where the army has been deployed as one is the continued bloody scenes in port science which have seen dozens killed and hundreds injured leaving many to question you know how this is going to end with a state of emergency in place this will also mean to be
11:03 pm
a lot of arrests and possible unrest between security force forces and protesters in the next few days. so president morsi has extended his hands to the opposition and search for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing crisis but political activists some authority says the muslim brotherhood led government will look to maintain the status quo unless factions from the entire political spectrum put pressure on them. alist the fear that people in the street. challenge them a challenge that all thirty particularly in terms of going to situational amendment we are hearing all the times that people in muslim brotherhood do not want to change the constitution and seize as a constitution is a pistol over the globe. saw i think is that the more people exercise pressure on them the more they can reacted positively and the try to accommodate all political trends and all political factions within. political system i'm afraid that the
11:04 pm
muslim brotherhood would like to manipulate the state operators for the sake of people speaking about this issue and we have to build a new democratic system built on. neutral state apparatus in egypt rather than a state operator serving one political party particularly you are still in that initial period where bahrain beset by violent anti-government protests those in the medical field seem to be increasingly targeted by the authorities doctors say they're suffering severe interview for treating injured protesters where the government investigating some of those allegations. looks now at whether those helping others in the kingdom are the ones at risk nada dhaif was among a group of doctors who were trying to help the injured during a protest in bahrain she claims that after violently crushing the dissent. turned
11:05 pm
their attention to her and her colleagues who were providing first aid they denied . health care to the patients and protesters. the doctors did not obey the orders for such. decided to punish those doctors i was taking place for ten days that i didn't know where it was. all that time i was blindfolded and handcuffed i was in a solitary confinement for back to twenty one days. and they would just open the door of the cell and beat me up. there was a member of the royal family who directly was responsible of my torch or she she was beating me and she looked at me almost two dozen doctors were arrested back then this for the fuel the anger of the protesters and turned the hospitals grounds into the scene of the rally the salmaniya hospital is bahrain's leading medical
11:06 pm
institution and that's where most of the arrests have been made after those events it now looks like a fortress guarded heavily by the right police and not everybody can get in human rights activists or if you had suffered for speaking out against the regime and decided to come here for treatment you could make matters even worse for yourself anyone who was injured from the protests they cannot go to the hospital because they would be arrested beaten and taking to the jail last year many protester and in jail were tortured in certain money we have a story and testimony of people and protesters being tortured and but in my country protests there were tortured inside. britain not who was charged with treason and sentenced to fifteen years in prison before being acquitted because of what she believed to be international pressure on bahrain's government the fate of many
11:07 pm
other doctors remains unclear the person who allegedly tortured not and others princes. has been. surely charged by police she denies all allegations against her meanwhile the government stands recently at the action it took against the hospital was the right thing to do. these doctors managed to control the emergency unit in the first floor of the hospital and started to perform political acts when a hospital is turned into a base for political ethic work this is a real disaster we had an unbiased committee investigating the hospital eight condemn the acts of these doctors. the case against one of the members of the wall family may seem as an indication that bahrain's government has bowed to the negative global reaction with the doctor scandal being far from the only torture accusation c.c.t.v. cameras have been installed at all prisons in a move to become more transparent according to the authorities but with protests in the gulf states still continuing and accusations of human rights violations

11:13 pm
monkey case sparked a huge international outcry so why is this trial over the tax evasion is viewed as politically motivated. magnitsky died officially due to problems with its hard to investigation looking into the circumstances of his death to not reveal any evidence that there was some violations from the authorities when he was detained to nevertheless the man is that presented in the west to especially in the state as a victim of various human rights way lesions and in the end of two thousand and twelve american lawmakers passed on the so-called magnitsky act which gives the green light to sanctioning russian official suspected there in the us all for violations of human rights these are travel restrictions economic. business restrictions as well but it's seen by many officials in moscow as an anti russian wall because it's really not

11:15 pm
a list of individuals who have been involved in a crime would you think it is if not an extrajudicial execution of the convicts these individuals without any trial or prosecution. now when there were just talks about the monkey act in the u.s. moscow warned that there was going to be a major response since it would as an unfriendly act and it released. putting together its own sort of blacklist of several categories of american citizens suspected of violations of human rights there in the u.s. these are officials or former officials connected to guantanamo and those people suspected of violating the rights of russian citizens but also. another thing which followed that was a general ban for all americans to adopt russian children due to the many cases of the why lesion of their rights and sometimes even that it was interpreted by many first as
11:16 pm
a portal for russia's response to the migrants here but what we've just heard from the prime minister going to be of is that although the general ban was passed on the week of the emotional week caused by them i mean to eric to de facto legally these two things are not connected. all right avery thanks very much indeed for bringing us to something you're pissing off reporting there for us. well the midterm event of also spoke about the conflict in syria he says unless the country starts the reconciliatory process it will face an endless civil war moscow remains neutral while maintaining that foreign intervention should be ruled out but the prime minister did say time is not on president assad side. i think there are fewer chances for him to stay on with every new day every week and every month but let me
11:17 pm
repeat it is up to the syrian we've got to make a decision but not up to russia the united states or any other state in iraq now the main task is to launch a national reconciliation process we should think about the future for instance if the opposition which by the way has been formed outside of syria comes to power which the what is it going to do with its members will exterminate representatives of other islamic movements another confessional are already doing this that's why there are two options either it will be a protest of a national reconciliation and you held under the control of the international community or and the civil war and there is no in between. you can see the full interview with prime minister dmitry medvedev on our website. meanwhile u.s. president barack obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have the fan of their foreign policy record in the middle east both appeared in a joint televised interview as america's top diplomat prepares to step down
