international news and common live from moscow this is all t. with me year thanks for joining us. venezuela has extended a helping hand to the man who exposed a world wide surveillance by the u.s. government edward snowden's finally received an asylum all for after being stranded in the transit zone of moscow's sheremetyevo airport for two weeks and also used on button is at the airport and is joining us now live full nor tom nice to see you so it seems the that the whistleblower finally has somewhere to go is that right. could it be the end of edward snowden's long isolation here at moscow's sheremetyevo airport his limbo in the transit area here or so we think as best we can tell we've not seen him for two months. it seems his options were running out
9:02 am
but now after these two weeks two offers possible offers of asylum the first one from venezuela as we heard announced by president nicolas maduro their system has put a stop here till i have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young american edward snowden in the homeland of simon bolivar and to go to church and snowden can come and live here away from the persecution of american imperialism. another possible offer coming from the president daniel ortega of nicaragua he's saying that if the circumstances permitted it would surge and may be able to go there as well so possibly to safe havens to exit routes for the now famous or infamous depending on how you look at it mass surveillance whistleblower yes and also the obstacles snowden is facing as he looks to fly to safe sea.
9:03 am
but what sturgeon's main obstacle really at the moment is the fact that he has no documents that would allow him to travel his passport his u.s. passport having been an old he did get a document from ecuador to travel from hong kong here to moscow he would need another such kind of paperwork to travel on to. venezuela or nicaragua however there are two other problems seeing as he would most probably be flying there one is u.s. airspace there are no doubt direct flights to venezuela he would conceivably at some point may have to cross u.s. airspace which space which could present quite obvious problems and also crossing e.u. space a number of countries in the e.u. recently received a tongue lashing from the bolivian president his plane had to be stopped in austria because of suspicions perhaps that. was on board so possible complications there it
9:04 am
does seem it could be many complications in edward snowden's possible bit for flight to venezuela i want to correct you all right tom dawson live from moscow sure matter airport tom thank you very much indeed for that top date. snowden applied for asylum all over the world but his requests have been rejected by a host of nations including european ones found a wide awake news china mcgrath sounds that nations don't want to upset the u. has displayed snowden revealing how much washington's spied on bond. the laundry list of nations that snowden has applied to for asylum include scores of these european nations that are just all giving the same excuses that he's got to either show up on their soil or in their embassy you know the information that's been released has shown that our allies in europe were the one the in
9:05 am
a lot of cases the ones being spied on so for them just to play the well we don't want to we don't want to upset the americans so we're going to give the standard answer no you know no comment or he's got to show up at the embassy it's it's very much a pressure rating for people like me that want to see the truth come out even when you expose the truth in even when you give it this truth to the people who are being spied on they won't step up and support truth so yeah it is a bit frustrating to to see these european nations just kind of ignore this outright spying that's happening. and europe also appears no stranger to spying of its citizens revealed france also has its own large scale eavesdropping program reports suggest huge amounts of food and aid to have data are being monitored and stored and they're trying to bunker beneath paris stay with us here for more details coming up at late. egypt

9:07 am
country which is becoming impossible in addition there have been rumors of talks between between the muslim brotherhood group which is the islamist party that the deposed president hails from people are looking to the miniature right now to control the situation as they are the only institution that really is organized enough or has sort of power enough to be able to sort this out we saw quite a little amount of soldiers in the clashes last night people were actually criticizing the military for that saying you know where are the police where are the military the capital is on fire probably playing quite a careful game at the moment the tensions are very high many people here expect a curfew to be imposed as was imposed during we don't know if i really should i'm following. the revolution to be imposed in addition we expect as i said the military to possibly be having to it to the muslim brotherhood group to try and rein in their supporters come to some kind of political compromise to bring this country out of this chaos and political stalemates and you can follow through on twitter and she's in the midst of the bounds in the egyptian capital which is

9:09 am
them will take to the street and then we oust the next guy and then we keep going that's i mean that's not a democracy anymore that's that's the rule of the jungle washington which supported their own nation egypt years ago has so far failed to give its roots happening in the country now correspondent jonathan steele reports extensively on the middle east and believes egypt's in the situation is not being helped by the reluctance of those cost back is to move off the fence by rounding up the muslim brotherhood leaders there undermining any chance of a real compromise dialogue to end this crisis they talk about they want national reconciliation well how can you have reconciliation if you lock off a president who is elected freely by an enormous number of egyptians it is a military coup you can't get around that it's hard for the u.s. to come out publicly in support of a military coup so they have to make these noises ritual noises about. return to
9:10 am
civilian rule but they're not really sure what what to do so i think the best solution is some sort of compromise and i wish we would hear that from some of these western leaders. one coming up for you struggling with starvation while they mount of charity for the angst trip across the u.k. while fat minister calls it a free lunch linking the rise with people's greed no policy and hunger and plenty most stories in just a few months. they all told me my language or what i will only react to situations i have read the reports like the pollution and no i will leave them to the state park to comment on your latter point of the month to save lives or carry out a car is on the job you know god i. hope they do no more weasel words.
