a member of the royal family who directly was responsible of my thought she she was beating me and she looked cute to me almost two dozen doctors were arrested back then this for the fuel the anger of the protesters and turned the hospital grounds into the scene of the rally the sound money hospital is bahrain's leading medical 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 will be arrested in the gated beaten and taken to the jail last year many protester and in jail where torture insults and money we have a story and testimony of people and protester being tortured and the jail but in my

country protester were tortured and so. britain not a 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 other doctors remains unclear the person who allegedly tortured not and others princes have been. has been officially charged by police she denies all allegations against her meanwhile the guy. woman stands resumed but the action of to the hospital was the right thing to do when 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 journeyed to a base for political ethic work and this is a real disaster we had an unbiased committee investigating the hospital condemn the acts of these doctors as. the case against one of the members of the world family

may seem as an indication the 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 intensifying the opposition is still wondering what happens in the places where the cameras cannot see. reporting from the kingdom of bahrain. still have for you here on r t the us to fans its record in the middle east i'm going secretary of state hillary clinton gets praise from president obama who says washington played a leading role and regime change in edges and libya but remains has a tent on syria. and a big achievement for small business find out how a centuries old village shop in britain is surviving the current financial troubles

not on president inside. your i think there are fewer chances for him to stay with every new day every week and every month but let me repeat it is up to the syrian people to make a decision not up to russia the united states or any other state 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 what is it going to do with its members will exterminate representatives of other islamic movements another confessionals they are already doing this that's why there are two options either it will be a process of national reconciliation held under the control of the international community or and list civil war and there is no in-between. and you can see the full interview with prime minister dmitry medvedev on our website

the onslaught of major national chains has immense buying power it tempts shoppers with food sold for next to nothing has killed off thousands of independent british shops leaving ghost villages and now wait well obviously we're up against supermarkets and we all use supermarkets but to be able to have a local store which does local produce and is something where you can chat to people you meet everybody the gossip goes on in here is amazing it would be dreadful if we lost it because once you lose something like this you can never get it back again and they're not alone in getting together to save their small shop from extinction there are three hundred other community stores in some of the u.k.'s most rural pockets winning customers by knowing that retail means detail so operating in really difficult economic times but they really punching above their weight community shops are offering something. very often quite different from what a supermarket is. is offering for example they offer cafes they're offering postal
