5:01 am
would say have you having a wonderful in the states so far so first to egypt the northern city of port saeed way army and police units are desperately trying to protect government buildings from angry and to government protesters who have been on the rampage a since sunday it's rather the planned funeral for one of the seven people who have died could have fanned the flames of dissent even more. is in the embattled city for us. there are ten scenes here in egypt's coastal city of post sayit as the clashes continue into the night time standing right in front of the front line here we've witnessed excessive use of tear gas and by the security forces as well as hearing gunfire although i cannot confirm whether this is my mission all the reports have come in that i mean you should has been used in the past few days these protests broke out a few days ago off the defendant in this very contentious whose side football massacre verdict were being moved from one prison to on the nic an indication for
5:02 am
the families of the defendants in this trial were very angry and that's how these clashes began speaking to protesters this evening they tell me the push i need is being used as a scapegoat in this particular trial they believe the protesters in cairo a not said treated in the same way and that people him being ignored so forgotten by the government on targeted by the police the president for his part president mohamed morsi has torn to the idea of the withdrawing the police from the city and possibly putting the ministry in power they have of course a change the head of security here as well in advance to quell this sense although we expect the clashes in the run up to this very contentious verdict. belcher's us sharing with you what she's witnessing at the scene and sometimes it puts at risk you can see some protest as well and truly happy with a close up of reporting for the trees for the nato from the heart of the action and it makes little difference what verdict is passed to the deadly football riots on
5:03 am
undressed or will only get worse a says a sheriff and egyptian american journalist on democracy now. many people expect that whatever the verdict comes down that certain party will be angry either people are portrayed or people in cairo or both if the security officials are soonest getting off with a very light sentence or you're getting innocent. i think both sides will be very angry and see this lingering sense of injustice that is hanging over egypt for the past two years when really a good night on the streets of port side i'm cairo but really right thing what goes to the heart of it is not all there hasn't been much of any plans for the former the state bureaucracy or most citizens of the state are dealt with. drugs and the women just switched who is at the top from bottom to my more see how many people are now protesting against the brotherhood of mohamed morsi saying that instead of
5:04 am
trying to really reforms to decisions or trying to assert control have heard more recently. the body of an as well as a late president will be embalmed and put on public display for eternity in the chavis reportedly killed by a heart attack following a long battle with cancer is currently lying in state at a military academy in caracas easy three land the produce of all artes video agency ruptly stood in line to see him. i'm standing near the military academy where the late president hugo chavez's body is on display at the hof open cosset and literally hundreds of thousands of people with our off to our history managed to pay for that child it's now the media here it's obviously very somber but as you can hear also people here feel a great a man who they say not only gave them a voice but also gave them the opportunity to participate in a society which prior to chavez coming to power in one thousand nine hundred nine
5:05 am
was one of the most an equal in the world in terms of the divide between rich and poor and the people hit today are very much from the poorest parts of venezuela the poorest parts of the cities known as the barrios and also from the countryside and today they say that very much united in their collective determination to continue those socialist project their nose bolivarian is them which chavez initiated which they say not only transformed by lies but also changed many pas of the wilds and the people here to say that chavez is very much an immortal kind of figure who will continue to shape venezuela for generations lizzie feelin. russia's president vladimir putin believes on display on not to the us has already written his name into the history books correct to. chavez was a brave and very sorry man who is able to showcase strong character to go through with his plans he genuinely wants to bridge the country's poor citizens of them
5:06 am
points and improve their lives but each of his became the symbol of independence throughout latin america he was still alive he's joined the legendary ranks of simon bolivar fidel castro and shakers are. the fall full personality and popularity all of this means we could be hearing about him for a long time to come is a bloody issue be displayed at the military museum in caracas well we're not joined by our g.'s that he said now and i mean this has become a sort of the tradition of among socialist leader to stay with the people it has indeed to be history has taught us many controversial figures live on after their death through legacy but for a handful that's not enough for those they leave behind lines still for money red square here in moscow and lennon's mausoleum where the former soviet leader has lied and bombed since the twenty's there are still movements and debates today pushing for the tomb to be dismantled and lenin laid to rest stalin was involved as
5:07 am
well and actually laid next to let in for eight years but the communist party congress decided to remove his body and bury him outside the kremlin walls there's a clear communist trend here china's mounds of dong is still on display in tiananmen square though he did sign a proposal that calls for all leaders to actually be cremated ten years before his death he was involved in one thousand nine hundred seventy six minutes on display in hanoi vietnam despite his wish to be cremated as well but latin america has had only one figure involved and she is ever perowne there's quite a story surrounding her remains the argentinean first lady's body was meant to go on display much like lenin when her husband was overthrown in a military coup in one nine hundred fifty five he fled the country and body disappeared in one thousand nine hundred seventy one it was revealed that the remains were in milan in a crypt under
5:08 am
a different name body was zoomed and flown to spain where her husband and his third wife kept the remains for a while apparently they kept the corpse in fact in the dining room on a platform then when one peron came out of exile returned to argentina. came president for a third time and indeed finally returned and was buried after his death in one nine hundred seventy four in buenos aires twenty two years in total from death to her final resting place to be there's such interesting stories surrounding especially if it runs body a book came out in one thousand nine hundred five where they talked about the body actually being replicas being made of wax that the actual body was destroyed by a how murder that it was actually abused so tremendous scandal surrounding especially perot's body and now we have which i'm sure there will be all scandals to come out of this one for sure thank you lisa now is that i mean loads of us is death has left uncertainty not just in venezuela but across latin america this
5:09 am
money's a vocal opponent out of the pictures some experts are wondering whether washington will use the chance to increase its influence in the region artie's gannets as you can takes a look. communities of people throughout latin america are mourning the death of which office the venezuelan leader enjoyed tremendous popular support in his country as well as the whole region he won four presidential elections and had ruled venezuela for fourteen years so you see this liberation process not only on the venezuelan people but also of all the latin american peoples must continue. chavis allowed us to restore faith in latin america region so that a profound transformation in the region can be carried out those are the only guards and the empire will no doubt be happy and celebrating the news empire is the word a host of south american leaders and used to refer to the united states in washington president obama extended his sympathy to the chavez family and heralded quote
5:10 am
a new chapter in the history of latin america but the u.s. congress was not as restrained in their reaction to the death of the venezuelan leader the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee had this to say his death then the laws of the us leftist leaders in south america good riddance to this dictator in the media a slew of hundreds embarked on a search for new opportunities that might now be available for the u.s. in venezuela. so what does this mean now for the united states and all that oil in that country venezuela is a place of enormous opportunity it has by surveys perhaps the largest reserves of oil in the world from the u.s. point of view this has enormous potential implications because a venezuela that moves away from chavez is foreign policy means a venezuela that's less welcoming to iran less friendly to russia less friendly to castro's cuba less friendly to leftwing regimes around the hemisphere which is
5:11 am
financed in their campaigns and and other aspects but before america jumps at the chance to explore those new opportunities it might be useful to look back at what washington's previous efforts lead to. what the u.s. now calls leftist populist governments in latin america came to power partly in reaction to decades of the us recklessly meddling in the affairs of the region for years washington had seen many of those countries as its outposts after chavez was elected in one thousand nine hundred nine a host of other leaders in latin america followed his example to varying extents including but not limited to ever morales in bolivia rafael correa in ecuador and then a lot in nicaragua charges may not have been as hardened in his views against washington if not for allegations of the tacit support of the bush administration in the coup against him in two thousand and two he met with bill clinton a couple times and they got along just fine it was really only with george bush
5:12 am
then when things really were turned sour and especially after the coup attempt within forty eight hours of the start of the cool with the help of the military and vast popular support chavis returned to power by but during their short period when he was deposed some in the u.s. hurried to celebrate the new york times for example ran this article venezuelan democracy is no longer threatened by would be dictator caracas name provides fifteen percent of american oil imports and with signs of policies could provide more for years after the coup chavis said expressed his anger at the bush administration in a variety of fiery metaphors. the devil came here yesterday. and it still smells of sulfur here george w. bush has long left office but suspicion and mistrust remain some argue if during these challenging times for latin america washington continues to deal with the
5:13 am
region using the same old tactics the hostility could be put in washington i'm kind of. on the way as a new. headed for the cia john brennan has voted in the as the director of last week by contrast snow on capitol hill over his endorsement of america's deadly drone program. and how some communities in britain and not battling age old traditions alive that have been put at risk by strict tax policy that's coming up. did any of you seen darth vader is stormtroopers trying to make their way into the ukrainian justice ministry as part of a protest well probably a lot of you saw this fun viral video but how many people remember what exactly
5:14 am
they wanted and what their protest demands were all about probably not that many trust me i understand that using wacky protests tactics gets media attention and if you are pushing a cause the media attention is critical but when no one even gets what you want or why you're in that wacky costume it doesn't help there seems to be like almost a protest a culture and language like you see people protesting there so satisfied with themselves in their costumes and silly gimmicks but if your protest is actually aimed at people in power then how is it going to cure cost of goods with the opinion of heartless bureaucrats sitting in some soulless office again media attention is great but if you want to be taken seriously we're a rainbow wig and thawing while fighting for your rights doesn't seem to send the right message but that's just my opinion. things will stay with us here on our t.v.
5:15 am
it's good to have your company. north korea has officially scraped a hotline and non-aggression pact with the south it also shut down the borders saying washington and seoul are responsible for ruining nuclear disarmament talks as a premium threatened america with a preemptive nuclear strike following a u.n. vote approving more sanctions are it is a nice to see it has more. the fifteen member united nations security council presided this month by russia has adopted a new sanctions resolution against north korea and response to a third nuclear test conducted by pyongyang on february twelfth in defiance of existing united nations security council resolutions which basically bad any kind of nuclear testing by north korea and this latest resolution was drafted by the united states and china during three weeks of negotiations and adopted this thursday unanimously by the security council to give you more a general idea of what this resolution is all about what it basically does is condemns this latest nuclear test as well as any other nuclear activities conducted
5:16 am
by north korea including uranium enrichment it also bans any further nuclear tests and calls upon north korea to return to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and most importantly the security council in this text calls for north korea to return to six party negotiations in terms of north korean reactions we have to say of course that this thursday north korean officials have threatened with a preemptive nuclear launch if young yang were to be attacked by another country and this is of course fans of the united states because this week the u.s. has kickstarted joint military drills with south korea on the border between the two koreas something that kyung yang has dubbed an open declaration of war and we have to mention that analysts were saying that north korea is actually far from a while from having the technology to be able to set up and aim a nuclear weapon at a specific target but was of the biggest concern here is of course this provocative
5:17 am
language that's dangerous in the united nations security council to hopes to achieve is basically for north korea to return to six party negotiations with this latest push of this new resolution from the security council and the. new york. barack obama's former counterterrorism adviser has been confirmed as the new hate of the cia but before the senate could vote in john brennan his nomination was held up by questions over his role in washington's controversial drone program and republican lawmakers space for a marathon thirteen hours to get guarantees that remote control strike krav to wouldn't be used on the home front as marina put my records. so many u.s. lawmakers have a long objected to john brennan's nomination and there's various reasons before even getting to the drone program he's considered to have played a major role in the cia's enhanced interrogation program under george w. bush and he's also known as the top cheerleader for america's controversial drone
5:18 am
program now that program has been criticized as having a huge lack of transparency last year brought in argued for the legality the morality in the effectiveness of america's drone program and publicly had to acknowledge the cia that cia drone attacks have been taking place in pakistan yemen somalia libya afghanistan and elsewhere now on wednesday senator rand paul spent nearly thirteen hours on the senate floor filibustering brennan's nomination in pursuit of more information about the obama administration's domestic drone policy now confirmation of brennan as cia director that vote came after the obama administration specified limits on the presidential authority to order drone strikes against american citizens in the u.s. senator paul said he was satisfied with the statement that the administration released saying it about the president does not have the authority to use a drone to kill an american not in combat on american soil now washington however
5:19 am
did not specify what you do in combat and means i know some may say well you might be playing semantics but this combat mean carrying a concealed weapon does it mean carrying a knife does it mean that it has to be a soldier so clearly there are still questions about the wording that the a bottom of a bomb and ministration used but clearly those that were opposed to brought in were satisfied enough with that explanation to the point where he was confirmed as the head of the cia. the russian foreign minister says the leaders of the syrian opposition are finally showing signs of moving towards dialogue with the mascot without preconditions speaking to the b.b.c. seems that a lover average rate of moscow is committed to a diplomatic solution to the two year conflict but this is not for us to decide who should lead syria it is for the syrians to decide and i'm glad that the latest discussions the latest gestures from the opposition and statements from some of those who support that position. that they will be prepared to start negotiations
5:20 am
with some negotiating team without asking for president assad to step down and they believe unless they sit down and they could and would discuss i'm sure the future of syria including who is going to lead syria. and unless they sit down and start talking we would not know whether this chance could be materialised. the great survival of italian politics winds himself convicted and sentenced to one year behind bars find out whether there is there any chance of silvio berlusconi actually being sent to prison and why he was on trial in the first played at our web site. also there for you a group of international reporters including in our camera man i quote up in a tear gas attack by israeli forces while covering a peaceful protest in the west bank head to argy dot com for the details.
5:21 am
russian scientists have discovered a new type of life in the water of antarctica's a subglacial vase stock lake the researchers found the bacterial while studying samples of ice retrieved from a depth of almost full kilometers they'd lost the project in one of the most remote places on earth two years of planning a unique ecosystem is believed to have been secured it's of some of the surface for millions of yes our genes sean thomas has the details. this all started back in the seventy's when russian scientists decided they wanted to drill and do global warming core samples to kind of test the glacier and see if they could kind of reimagined how the earth changed in years passed through the layers of ice but then they discovered that the ice itself changed meaning that there was a lake down there so they then started hey we're going to go and see if we can actually find some water they did some sonic research and said yeah there is liquid
5:22 am
water down there it's thermally heated from down below if that's the case then there might be life if there's heat then there could be life down there so they decided to go forward then they got to this position where they said hey guess what we can actually break through and find out and then there was an ethical debate to do we introduce this atmosphere to this untouched pristine environment which hasn't been touched for billions of years so the very intense research and finally they broke through last year and now they're still doing the research to find out exactly what type of life it is you know not much of information has become available to us but very exciting find that's for sure this is a place in one of the most remote places on the planet and the you have to do a lot of preparation to actually even go to this place tell us more about that certainly to get to actual lake vostok itself it takes two weeks of a climate position it is the coldest place on earth in fact victim a highly bit who is the station chief where i stated buildings cows and station he was part of the expedition in one thousand nine hundred three that brought drilling equipment to restock of those that station he was there when they recorded minus
