to be revoked at the moment the clashes continue just of paris crash between anti-government protesters and security forces pick up spills in over downtown hundred together in syria right now with marches expected from across the capital into central to hurry square against the president mean on impulse i.e. there has been a funeral today for those killed during the clashes yesterday during another key route which was for protesters killed the day before the looks like the violence is yours and any time soon particularly as there have been calls for protests breaking because if you president mohamed morsi announced a safety measure to cross three cities in syria full size is fully under these protests in these areas and said they will break the curfew they will come to the streets to express their dissent against the president we're likely to see this evening is several arrests and quite a lot more violent. collaboration over the last four years that's how u.s. president barack obama described his first term in office with hillary clinton
12:03 pm
who's now giving the police or secretary of state but it's appeared in a joint televised interview as america's top diplomat prepares to step down my colleague in the somalia brings us a review of a time in office. responding to calls for decisive action in the region obama cited egypt as one of the examples of where his administration played a leading role in aiding regime change specifically he said that i think it had if it had not been for the leadership we showed you might have seen a different outcome there we do nobody a service when we leap before we look sounds fair enough but as we've just heard from bell true continuing on ras and mass protests are happening in egypt and the president has declared a state of emergency and nightly curfew so violence there reigns president obama who in fact of course like he upheld in this interview promoted change in the country and he used to enjoy quite high approval ratings across the muslim world
12:04 pm
but if we look at some numbers a recent poll has suggested that there's been a sharp drop in popularity in the region take a look at these numbers in terms of foreign policy international policy so just say thirty four percent back in two thousand and nine now at a mere fifteen percent in twenty twelve well another legacy of obama's first term in office was his handling of the revolt in libya again the president saying washington's foreign policy made a difference well it certainly made a difference but despite criticisms the administration hasn't been proactive enough in the region obama quite wittily it seems saying that moammar gadhafi probably would not agree with that assessment let's remember those violent pictures of him being brutally murdered after eight months of nato intervention let's take also the september attack on the u.s. embassy in benghazi that was a top rebel stronghold it left four top american officials dead including the
12:05 pm
ambassador and raise questions that hillary is still in fact answering about about the handling of the situation post gadhafi that obama says we are not going to be able to control every aspect of everything. transition and transformation sometimes they're going to go sideways so a little bit of taking credit for what he sees as plus is saying well we can't control everything when he's answering to criticism now both obama and clinton admit that the conflict in syria should be handled carefully perhaps because of what we saw in libya the aftermath i should say in libya well the president has written clearly on whether or not intervention would help resolve the crisis there . and responding to the obama clinton talk on c b s asia times correspondent beth escobar says the destabilization of north africa will only get worse. i think it was to go to bowen and hillary said you know we have to call george all roll for
12:06 pm
the wall it's fear mule speak lead india is a stable country about ok it's a country and by militias basically with a very weak central government with the soffit jihad these cross crisscrossing the country and linking it with salafi jihadists and syria and all over the side hell just like we saw him get back at the enough minutes gas field in algeria so libya was an absolute disaster and obama and he really could not see that key or pull back every sing that has happened the north and africa now is blowback of this capitalization of syria and it will be much worse mali syria kneejerk everybody's phone calls and know won't there be and shall want to pull out and no wonder the salafi jihadists are threatening western as this is evident because that fair game where there are actual fighting force that can be end the war on the war all make around that you leave supported by naval forces trained by the qataris of course
12:07 pm
your state ending in terms of egypt which although i feel are also sad it's not a second best story but all of these we have the military in place in egypt the muslim brotherhood in the presence and see supported by salafi jihad these were told it by its twenty percent at least and the people who actually learned the area square and the real spirit of that area square of people practice a shift workers students that were left in general ynet egypt difficultly marginalized so what kind of success stories that. back to our top story now let's get some analysis of the ongoing violence in egypt from dr saeed sadak he's a political social issues at the american university in cairo but dr sadegh the opposition has refused to participate in a dialogue proposed by president morsi why is that i mean is is dialogue is
12:08 pm
violence the alternative to dialogue is that what the opposition is trying to tell us. idealogue must be. on certain purposes. experience of the logan was a president what what was called the national dialogue has been a failure and so they don't want to give the president. any piece of a photo opportunity that they are all sitting and nothing happens there were many experiences in which opposition would say it was a government and the president agree on something and then after a while you'll find that there was no agreement and that is why the decided not to join also they feel that the president and the government the current government is in trouble and so they don't want to give it any lease of life or any support so that the government becomes strong again so they feel that this is
12:09 pm
a time to persia what should have been a better so. they should concentrate on the next parliamentary election in which it is very very possible that the liberals and the sickly of us may win. a sizeable number of seats so what is happening in egypt is. i was going to say so what you're actually saying is that morsi for the first i'm a critically elected president since mubarak. it almost seems like he was bending to the will of the people so now it dialogue is not even an option for him because the opposition feels it's going to be a p.r. stunt how else is this is the violence the end to be the and instability that is happening right now going to end in egypt. the egyptian sense of evolution feel that the only i mean awful then to have politics is a street and the street has its own rules and tactics and games we have seen the
12:10 pm
islamists have their own militia now we are also seeing some of the secular have their own militias and saw what you are seeing as acts of civil disobedience trying to put some pressure on the government to respond to the opposition demands like. amendments and constitution because they don't want an islamist state. also want to have. a clear. fear of elections because we have a parliamentary election coming soon saw as far as we can tell that we are egypt is going to be unstable for some time before all parties realize that the cost of keeping this conflict is going to be too damaging for everybody once you all realize nobody is going to be winnowed if this conflict continues then you will have democracy but as long as everybody some people believe that we will be winning
12:11 pm
if we keep perjuring and decision of the government and the government believes that if they keep persia in the opposition they would be winning there would be no stability in the country mostly has just given the army the power to arrest is this going to bring peace or is it going to bring more violence. after the pollutions are not the egyptians before the pollution so today there was more. fear and mood in the country and when he decided to have. an emergency situation. use the army and the super advances. what should have been a better option is to limit the emergency law in certain districts in those cities not the entire cities because this is like a collective punishment and so it is banning all those people in those areas again
12:12 pm
this is a regime i don't think they would vote for the regime is this is the beginning of using the army to replace ministry of interior the reserve interior sense of who is suffering from a lot of trouble listenership was a people have been affected by many decades of pursing the people on the moorpark regime so they have a big problem in being we have deleted if he uses the army again it shows that there is a political failure it is not a security problem in egypt it is a political problem that flipped itself in the security situation dr sadec we're going to have to leave it right there dr saeed sadat political social or just at the american university in cairo thank you so much for your time. so to come in the program of fighting to stay afloat we take a look at one of britain's oldest local sobs that's gone away to find again simple
12:13 pm

12:14 pm
you're watching r t with me and tom would say it's good to have you with us. but raney authorities are searching for a new round of talks with the opposition later this week amid the continuing crackdown on energy regime rallies across the nation the sunni want to he has been widely accused by rights groups of using tear gas and torture against protesters
12:15 pm
and as already the likes here show us your reports even those who try and treat the injured demonstrators say they are being victimized not to drive was among a group of doctors who were trying to help the injured during a protest in bahrain she claims that after a violent aggression the dissent the or for it to stirred their attention to her and her colleagues who were providing first aid they deny. health care to the patients and protesters. the doctors did not obey the orders for such. decided to punish those doctors i was taken to a 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 and there was a member of the royal family who directly was responsible of my torture she she was
12:16 pm
beating me and she electrocuted 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 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 beaten and taking to the jail last year many protester and in jail where torture insults and money we have a story and the similar people and protest are being tortured and the jail but in
12:17 pm
my country protester 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 other doctors remains unclear the person who allegedly tortured not and others princes. has been officially charged by police she denies all allegations against her meanwhile the guy. woman stands resumed the action to convince 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 ethnic work this is a real disaster we had an unbiased committee investigating the hospital condemn the acts of these doctors and the case against one of the members of the world family may seem as an indication that bahrain's government has bowed to the negative
12:18 pm
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. on r.t. dot com right now after a failed run for presidency billionaire businessman turned politician hired the problem is i in the seat in the state duma find out more on the line. that fancy a free pass to the theater well an american performing arts center is offering just that all you have to do both live coverage i'll go for months on twitter by not on

a business bulletin next hour live here on r.t.e. . now if you're interested in the russian military you can get a closer look at it by taking a drive on the country's roads battle ready a craft and heavily armored machinery comes within meters of those driving on russia's highways and my colleague in the sand now is spoke to tom botton about the sort of military hardware you could end up seeing. you can't say anything of the moment is this driver making his way along the road and suddenly screaming out of the distance comes this fighter jet just fifty meters above the road this helicopter doing the same thing coming in very very low over a driver who was just changing lanes at the time he was apparently training for search and rescue missions himself and then later on in the city of new gil in the urals we'll see just mind their own business driving along and suddenly a tank comes across the road someone hasn't worked out how to use the brakes yet i
12:21 pm
think he was the tank was on his way on the way from the tank factory nearby over to a test range of the side of the road the drivers of that car a little bit shocked to see it emerge at that sort of pace there were some bits investigations but in each of the cases the aviation authority here found that that was all with procedures low flying trainings quite important we also find for that for the helicopter training that is also very necessary and as the as the local authority said all the investigators looking into it said people like seeing helicopters swooping about to know that there are forces is there so i suppose the argument as well and that as far as the tank goes the tank fracture himself said this is totally normal the tanks have to drive across there is actually a red light that is you can't just see it's just off screen showing drivers perhaps not very well they should have stopped and the tank factory saying people should
