8:05 am
know different sides of the story ok on the one hand of god morsi supporters who argue that he was democratically elected and that their position is not taken into account not represented and on the other activists like yourself for example god the president adds three protests so why shouldn't pro morsi campaigners be afforded the same right to demonstrate. they are not as we see them straight but there are not really you could not and blur and activists like up which have been proven in in battle in that area they have reached of them straight but not up what's weapon in our faces there are features i'm without doubt and i being the people i mean when i was them a stray thing artists they can get out of that talk their whole lives and we are also hearing that you know the protesters were attacked by members of the military
8:06 am
they were shot heard and people were wounded so i mean of course keeping order is a good thing but doesn't it really sound alarming to you. well if you are and i wish i knew you what's happening in our country. do not expect. me to sound when i'm shocked the people in my night of dying every day with attack from r.p.g. i'm from missiles and killed every day by paris. from time out i'm from did you have my skybox which are supporting. the muslim brothers which are supported by the means of course it also does a mr obama. over the no

in that in. talks with the muslim brothers or the court supporting them and let me think about the election it was. forced. by them if not the most the result was what to do with me at the election there would be a civil war in egypt so it was not it was nothing but the dems with nothing. of a democracy what they would do we. we could not they were standing out from chief there was no i may go she said they would accept things in the satirist from coming back from cyprus so i've got a time. yes have to come not a not an easy situation a to get out off and find a peaceful solution to what's happening in your country at the moment i stand your
8:08 am
position for now i'd like to thank you very much for expressing your views with us here in r.t. running out of time so that was after some my boy activists that took part in anti morsi protests. now dr mohammed abdul aziz from the salaam islamic center in california believes the army is correct down the muslim brotherhood mind lead to their radicalization its young members the military is now doing what it does that's going after the supporters of the legitimate president this is basically i am innocent of the of the nasir era and the crackdown on the muslim brotherhood that took place in the one nine hundred fifty s. what we be sickly see a repetition of that same scenario where the military of egypt cracking down on an islamist group we may or may not agree with their policies these but they have renounced violence a long time ago they put them in prison they torture their members the the shoot him dead a group of those members will eventually break off of the muslim brotherhood and
8:09 am
adopt a more violent perspectives and this is exactly what happened in the sixty's seventy's and eighty's and those developments basically to the creation of the international phenomenon of terrorism that we still suffer the ramifications of until the present day went to an extremely concerns me right now is those young members of the brotherhood saying the same exact thing feeling that democracy can never bring them to power that their voices will never be heard that they will eventually resort to violence and then when we have waves and waves of violence this is not going to be good for anybody. well upsetting images of the violence in egypt have been posted on twitter we can see that some of those injured are children and there are claims that a thirteen year old boy was killed in alexandria there are also pictures showing civilians allegedly firing live rounds of promo testers at r.t. dot com we have a timeline of the turmoil in egypt has suffered since president morsy was deposed
8:10 am
we've gathered some of the most dramatic pictures and accounts for you there. are you an inquiry into the use of chemical weapons in syria has gone off the ground as investigators in damascus officials finally reach an agreement the probe but was stalled as the u.n. demanded full access to syrian facilities which the authorities denied and another a breakthrough has been reached and new york a key rebel group has agreed to take part in a peace conference aimed at resolving the two year war in syria after a meeting with security council members but as more important explains there are conditions. in what was pre-conditions are it's hard to detect it seems as though they want to make sure that syrian president bashar al assad has no authority following the to the to a meeting and another precondition possibly once
8:11 am
a transitional government is the scalp which at that transitional government would have full of authority over the security of the military in syria there's a lot of back and forth with the wording with the russian ambassador to the u.n. really underscored here is that all this talk of provisions of the geneva two meeting from actually moving forward and taking place they were mentioning among other things that they needed more weapons etc etc so some other remarks that were making sort of were leading in the direction of further further conflict for the conflict which ship. with no obvious. this is no secret that the syrian opposition would like to receive the weapons in arms in military aid that the obama administration recently promised to provide to the rebels fighting against syrian president bashar al assad it is clearly soon that the delegation representing the syrian opposition is here in new york discuss that issue with u.s. secretary of state john kerry now before they began their bilateral meeting on
8:12 am
thursday secretary kerry said that there could be no military solution to the syrian crisis only a political solution but if that is the case many ask why would washington be shipping more weapons and arms to a country that is in the midst of a civil war that is now reaching two and a half years so we have this meeting taking place and a lot of talk but it seems as though the positions still remain and there has been no date yet set for this geneva two meeting that is co organized co-sponsored by russia and the u.s. . campaign or you were told is that western backed attempts to topple the assad regime only stir up a hornet's nest in syria randori peace efforts useless. the united states in the united kingdom france other western nations have really made clear that they will only accept the fall of the side and despite the fact that they continually try to say that they're for peace negotiations it seems at every turn whether it's sending arms to the rebels whether it's sending them quote unquote non-lethal aid money in
8:13 am
general supporting the gulf countries that are also supporting them that really all of the talk about peace is disingenuous and unlike russia and other countries they seem very. determined to push forward the syrian rebels as the new leadership of the country regardless of the situation on the ground when the russian in the united states where originally trying to promote the geneva two conference we saw that the syrian rebels essentially said that they had no intention of negotiating until the situation on the ground changed that is until they gained the military upper hand so from their perspective they seem only willing to negotiate if the military situation allows them to have the upper hand in negotiations but if they seem to be losing the war if it seems that support for them inside of the country is dropping all of a sudden they have no desire to negotiate and they only want to continue to push war which is the subtext of this entire meeting where on the sidelines they have been pushing for more and more military aid from the united states and for it to come significantly quicker. on the ground the syrian army reportedly bagged by has
8:14 am
been lost quads has been advancing in rebel held neighborhoods in the central city of homs media reports suggest that opposition groups there are also infiltrated by mercenaries political strategy analyst chris latina says the involvement of foreigners is making a bad situation even worse. there are so many factions that have so much influence with this coalition and even the assad government has brought in others outsiders if you will to sort of prop up their government that there doesn't seem to be any particular group that can claim to be in charge or one side or the other the whole situation is become balkanized the last thing people in america want is to get into another situation are rock which is very confusing we never really picked the side . to be on that seemed to be the right side and ten years after our invasion there there doesn't seem to be any kind of coalition there around
8:15 am
a governing body that all iraqis can agree on. now the u.s. is going all out to stop the ongoing hunger strike going tunnel bay that's how some experts describe a panic don's decision to transfer to inmates back home although the government insists it's part of the camp's closure process the details are just ahead. and a crime center all the people have been as well as interest in the slums are forming vigilante groups to fight crime and corruption but there are fears they could be doing more harm than good and that's coming up. wealthy british scientists on. the.

8:17 am
welcome back you are with r.t. and the latest that we are getting from where we are hearing that clashes erupt in the cairo between the security forces supporters of morsy and killing at least thirty eight well we continue to monitor the situation for you and we'll bring you more as we get it. now in what's thought to be america's largest fraud scheme in years five people have been charged with stealing more than three hundred million dollars by siphoning people's credit cards they now face trial and could spend decades in jail if convicted artie's andrew blake has a story. we had five guys four russian nationals and one ukrainian man who over the course of around seven years were able to penetrate a number of the networks of leading financial institutions banks all sorts of systems where very important information was being stored over the course for several years those men broke into the databases allegedly took
8:18 am
a sensitive information and in the end u.s. prosecutors now say that those five men were able to compromise roughly one hundred sixty million credit cards causing upwards of three hundred million dollars of damage they were able to elude authorities for around seven or eight years now but actually masterminding this operation itself took a lot of very careful planning now of the five men that are believed involved in this each one kind of had a separate little niche that they would specialize in for instance were experts when it came to penetrating computer networks others would go into these networks after they were compromised in mind for even more would build up very very sophisticated internet networks to be able to communicate anonymously so by having different specialists in different sectors they were all able to to put the pieces together and cause millions of dollars hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage and affect you know people around the globe two of them were arrested one of them has since been extradited from the netherlands the other one is awaiting
8:19 am
extradition and three of them are at large so once they are brought to the u.s. and tried the could be looking at likely decades in prison. that was unsealed thursday this week it all stems from a previous investigation that began a few years ago and did with the conviction of an american computer hacker who is currently serving several decades behind prison for a similar crime. well the pentagon says it all repatriated to guantanamo inmates back to claiming it's the first step on towards closing the infamous facility for is an heiress at the camp sparked international condemnation of the obama administration by starting their continuing hunger strike back in february against their abuse an indefinite detention social studies scholar dr alan singer says the transfer is just throwing a bone to the inmates to make them stop protesting. in many ways due to act of desperation the hunger strike has embarrassed the united states all over the world
8:20 am
so they're trying to break the hunger strike by pushing out a couple that people but these are people that are being detained without any legal justification one of the things i find so curious is that trying to get out curiously jake to the people algeria is not well noted for the due process of its courts countries with stablish legal proceedings do not want to touch this just saying you know it states and is saying to obama you made this mess you're stuck with it i am an expert on the jury in prison system but i had to go to jail i think i'd much rather go to sweden or denmark the traditions in general in algeria are very very harsh i mean i think they're looking to send people to a. hunt is fate i don't see this as any kind of due process of any kind of outcome i just think they're trying to get out of something they created. or
8:21 am
a world orthodox church delegations how arrived in ukraine folly and historical hauling around like the st andrews cross that unites the nations of ancient russia but the symbolic event in king of comes during politically hard times for ukraine where the country as a at the crossroads between russia and the e.u. bringing the risk of explains. well really the center of one of the most religious festivities you have seen in the last several years that hundreds of thousands of people have flocked here. taking part. because one thousand and twenty five years ago it was here and it was adopted as official religion. and then spread its way across the country and there have been several you can see conflicts that russia and ukraine have participated in over the past several decades the orange revolution which increasingly saw ukraine pushing its way. away from russia and towards europe ukraine is just and destroying. reasons to say that.
8:22 am
i was living in russia and half of the country. moving in the opposite direction. because. of course there are people in ukraine who a look who are looking west they're looking at europe and they're thinking. it's in the european union that. their attention and their priorities lie. lifestyle they want to see some of the values at the same time of course russia and ukraine share a lot of cultural historic and of course the economic ties and a lot of critics. of ukraine warned that should the country's turn westward. basically diluting its national identity. well let's check out more international news this hour now tandon thousands of people flooded the streets of the tunisian capital for the funeral of a key secular opposition figure calling for the government to be broad down
8:23 am
military helicopters and hundreds of soldiers accompany the procession for mohamad brian brahimi who was shot outside his house on thursday a bomb blast ripped through a police vehicle just hours before the funeral was held and nobody was hurt in the explosion. protesters have ransacked the offices of the muslim brotherhood and a levy in capital after a leading critic of islamists in the country was killed in a drive by shooting abdul salam had recently campaigned strongly for a new law that prevents officials under the deposed regime from being elected a security official said investigation had been launched into the murder. but his whale has been touted as a safe haven for whistleblower edward snowden to be out of harms way after these leaks on spying stand washington but widespread crime and police corruption have made a latin american country a very dangerous place to live as are still you reports on how citizens are arming themselves and taking security into their own hands.
8:24 am
election campaign may have been based on believe this is legacy but if there's one major issue give as well as a new president could be credited for bringing to the forefront it's the country's lack of security. you can be abducted even from your own home there's no safety in our country government figures show more than sixteen thousand people were killed it is well in two thousand and twelve an increase of fourteen percent from the year before and a moderate a fifty five point two per hundred thousand inhabitants one of the highest in the world making the high crime rate public enemy number one. they're wrong and. my father was killed near his home four years ago. entered or collectives organizations that initially emerged as left as revolutionary groups driven by ideology determined to confront society's ills today they're known either
8:25 am
as protectors of the community or violent vigilante groups depending on whom you ask we. also known as now a senior member of the. for some time ago american imperialism that infiltrated latin america in venezuela in particular cause massive spread of drugs across our territory we have to combat this disease that's when the movement of power or kid the press and narrow started we also start of a model of urban groups that fight drug trafficking and violence we clean up the streets. now we're here at the us and there are a lot of shanty towns here and it's very rural who go chavez and also it's also home to a very strong leftist activism and people here tell me that they don't welcome the police they don't want to see him here because they say that the police here are corrupt instead they have groups armed groups called the collective us who maintain security in this area maybe going after drug traffickers but it's widely believed
8:26 am
that at times they were also resort to lethal means some local say however that there's no alternative for now police corruption has been so rampant that in two thousand and nine the government even admitted that twenty percent. crimes were committed by crooked cops but the self proclaimed role as protector may be challenged as nicholas pushes his secure fatherland plan deploying some three thousand troops into the streets of caracas let's take the example of the colored people they might help the government one day and then they might become allied with local mafias on the next day mr nikola motherhood of the new president chavez out of the scene is certainly going to have much greater difficulty in bringing them under the sway of government policies and government orders he's definitely getting into very very difficult waters there because if he sends at least forces trying to control them that will definitely create scenes of violence and those
8:27 am
scenes of violence can turn very ugly and now much in the hot seat having pledged to make tackling quite a personal priority a promise will be held to by a politically divided population united by a desperate desire for peace of mind to answer syria r t. and next in the kinds of reports to stay tuned. i've talked with many times about the absurd things going on all around us like kids being thrown out of school because they had a gun that shoots bubbles or various people getting punished for their tweets and facebook posts it's all really abstract it's hard to truly get angry over until you
8:28 am
see the results or playing a stupid video game just carter sarcastically said to someone who called him crazy oh yeah i'm real messed up in the head i'm going to go shoot a bunch of kids at school l.o.l. j k and for this bit of sarcasm he spent quite some time awaiting trial in a texas prison not only that according to his father. he was being attacked brutally on many occasions leading to both a poor concussions and black eyes and in the end he had to be thrown into solitary confinement for his own good you see this is the ugly reality of those who for the bad side of political correctness you know i don't talk about these stories just for fun the main thing i'd like to say is that it wasn't for some anonymous coward in canada turning him into the authorities for doing absolutely nothing this young man would not have to live with the memory and possible injuries from numerous assaults to the anonymous canadian who turned him in i sarcastically wish you a horrible fate but you probably get me arrested for it so just say that it's people like you who allow tyranny to exist but that's just my opinion.
8:29 am
