7:01 am
are watching our live from moscow where it's three pm this saturday our top story october has become the blood only a small infant in iraq in five years data from the country's interior defense and health ministries puts the death toll at nine hundred and sixty four people that's almost ninety percent civilians well according to the government the number of house and been this high since april two thousand and eight when more than a thousand were killed the numbers don't quite correspond with the findings of the u.n. which puts july as the bloodiest this year but whatever the figures it's clear the country is facing an increasing security problem no surprise that the iraqi prime minister is in washington d.c. asking for help. reports. we know that the rocky leadership has made a request for u.s.
7:02 am
assistance in the fight against terror we don't know the details of that request the leaders wouldn't elaborate on that the iraqi prime minister called al qaida a scourge for iraq and the middle east the iraqi prime minister has arrived in washington in the month that turned out to be the deadliest in the last five years for those who are following the news it's becoming such a repetitive phrase the deadliest month in iraq for this many years said we we hear it all the time the fact is that following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three terrorism has skyrocketed in iraq to six carry on a war that broke out as a result of the invasion has created a great environment for terrorists the iraqi prime minister says it's getting the worst of the so-called arab revolutions there is a power vacuum in the region which extremist forces take advantage of it specifically spoke about syria and the situation there of course even though iraq snorri all molly he knows what the was the invasion has led to in his country he can't be too critical of washington because after all in a way it's thanks to the u.s.
7:03 am
that he's now in power political analyst swan's allow says the level of violence has recently spiked across the entire middle east the prime minister of iraq one he made the call i think what he means by it is providing intelligence. support because he sees the skill of the from syria. the level of violence in iraq and the level of violence in iraq as a whole has increased because of perth but the reality is the politics of iraq is broken and the violence is is a result of that is not only because iraqi army is weak is just because the. iraqi politics as a whole is dysfunctional that hasn't worked for the last ten years so. i don't think what's going on in iraq is going to be a risk to the global sort of risk but obviously it's going to be rich to oil markets in the around the world is going to be a risk to the region as the middle east iran and what's going on in syria i mean
7:04 am
this could turn sort of this can stow ball from syria and then to iraq and then it can you never know what is going to stop. gamma is the kurdish iraqi novelist and former prisoner of saddam hussein's regime she says whatever the assistance from washington it will not stabilize iraq. the government does not represent the people i mean the government is quiet this see squabbling among the alliance is formed off alliance of some political parties most of them got militias and they are very busy fighting each other so this entire fighting is causing a lot of the. koran does fireless against the civilians it's not the outcome off weapons that is the task of the people is the real intention of the work of the regime itself and the many political parties there in order to ensure the

security of the people the pakistani taliban has vowed to avenge the death of its leader who's been killed in a u.s. drone strike and pakistani officials say the assassination has derailed peace talks with militants here is islam a bad base journal with a new rashid with the latest. security has gone and there is a lot of security in major cities off pakistan in the harbor. because of course so far the statements from the government have been very grim and leaders have been saying that this is being and not them to sabotage the peace talks between pakistan's government and the taleban interior minister of pakistan he has stated that only david for yesterday was talking about peace talks and they were almost under way right now yesterday's event of another drone strike that.
7:06 am
the country is again a conflict as to what should be the next step what to expect from the taliban as far as the government by stance government is concerned they have struck strongly condemned this attack and they are expecting to. continue with the start but so far it seems. so far it's at a dead end and it's difficult to see right now steve what would be the next step because there would be a bloody retaliation from the taliban and the security is heightened in the sound and everyone is just in anticipation as to what would be the next move. the u.s. and pakistani officials recently praised the way bilateral relations were developing with this latest drone strike will likely tarnish that trend according to peace activists nor mir. this is an absolute defiance of. on behalf of the u.s. government of what in the washer you've had explicitly stated was necessary for
7:07 am
a pox on to take the matter into its own hands and this just seems to be a slap on the face to say your peace talks really do not mean anything to us and it seems to be the us stating that if it wants absolutely nothing to do with the pakistani government's stance on this so we see a regression in terms of in terms of where we could be heading taking a bite of the problem europe's on high alert over recent rabies outbreak in france amid fears it could spill over the border. with china so crucial to frighten the flock and we've put themselves at risk coming up we take a look into how the u.k. is authorities are handling disease prevention with vets are doing their. job. but first the u.s. senate committee has passed a bill to rein in the n.s.a. following the revelations of leaker edward snowden the document was aimed at

scaling down the amount of records the intelligence agency will be able to obtain it critics say the measures will do quite the opposite. senator feinstein's bill is an effort to codified the n.s.a.'s bulk collection of americans telephone records which is in fact on shaky legal footing right now and there's another program that's being legalized in this bill which has not gotten as much attention as it really should which is the back door searches of international communications and so what has been happening is that the n.s.a. is allowed under the limits act to go collect huge amounts of communications of people who are suspected to be foreigners overseas without any individual warrant because they are foreigners overseas what ends up happening is the n.s.a. scoops up a lot of communications between people overseas and americans and also ends up scooping a lot of purely domestic communications of americans into that as well these are all communications americans communications that the n.s.a.
