we follow the olympic torch as it's taking on his first ever space walk just ahead of the twenty fourteen winter games. it is sunday morning here in moscow which means it's time for the weekly on our t.v. with me rule received show from the entire news team welcome to the program today marathon talks on iran's nuclear program have failed to produce an agreement but hope remains that might be one in the future while the world powers trying to push ahead france revealed itself to be the most skeptical in the western camp refusing to accept any short term deal. reports on the meetings so-called stumbling blocks the three days of talks here high level talks that it started off with
11:02 pm
a lot of optimism had ended with essentially no deal so we know that the nature of these talks were very important in the sense that the ministers who were here in town had dropped it changed their schedules in order to come here enjoy these talks of the a lot of speculations that a deal might be reached but it didn't come to have to pass that law five you said the foreign minister of france was one of those really was vocal about his. initial text presented. in detail one of those a reservation as would be the stockpile that there's talk of wrong as well as the reactor that's scheduled to open sometime next year in iran he said he was not satisfied that he wanted something of an agreement that was serious and also he had said something like he was not ready to get involved in a call and gave him this hard angered lawmakers in iran they were saying that he really was hindering the talks and had blamed france even calling it blackmail on terror but what's interesting is when the e.u. foreign policy chief catherine ashton as well as
11:03 pm
a foreign minister of iran. came coming here to give their press conference they were kind of upbeat and they were hopeful about the next round of talks scheduled for november the twenty years had said that he was disappointed and that he understood that something like this there would definitely be there will definitely be differences among the different parties involved but really it has taken quite a different turn from what was expected when we were hearing statements coming from foreign ministers of the u.k. you know william hague saying that they seize the moment and trying to come up with a very elusive deal but in the end indeed there is no deal that has been reached but again talks will be rescheduled november the twentieth. now some of the main sticking points on the table were tyrone's weapons grade nuclear fuel stockpiles of enriched uranium and sanctions relief let's take a closer look at the deal negotiators were attempting to put together here on our let's have a look around here first according to some sources the six world powers want iran
11:04 pm
to stop all activities to or enrich uranium and iran would also be obliged to limit the number of centrifuges that uses under monitoring over its facilities in return powers or world powers would unfreeze some of iran's assets perhaps in foreign banks and maybe that have been a crippling the country's economy earlier we talked to cover. a former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team you think is that despite the french resistance tehran has actually played its one very well. it was the singular contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the process and managed to sabotage the deal basically there's a very a strong pro israel lobbying in paris and you know the it is of course the relations between paris and tel aviv there's no doubt in anyone's mind that dealing with good intentions with
11:05 pm
a detailed proposal and prove their good faith in their negotiations in my mind and minds of a lot of other people including millions in iran that a lot of the responsibility for the absence of a deal tonight rests on the shores of the french government and before the talks i began on thursday thousands were rallying in the iranian capital chanting death to america and burning is ready flags as well despite iran's new leader pushing for a nuclear agreement many of the country are outraged by their government's dealings with the west so what is our poll scott now investigates why. let's argue republic of iran is ready to engage immediately in time bound orientated talks to build mutual confidence and the removal of mutual uncertainties hassen rouhani as recent speech at the u.n. general assembly was said by many to represent a thorin in relations between tehran and washington
11:06 pm
a sign that the iranian leadership is king to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is king for this to happen. hard line conservative protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran and now those uncomfortable with the idea of increased diplomacy with washington have launched the first ever down with the usa contest the idea is to find the most creative anti us propaganda contestants are invited to submit photographs posters caricature poems hymns and blogs all relating to the slogan down with the usa over three thousand dollars are up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark the death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. well the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine
11:07 pm
iranian revolution when the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now favor holly's willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the u.s. government to suggest the sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent days on the
11:08 pm
leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to the american slogans and binah is appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down. r.t. . or it's good to have you with us here today on the way rests recuperation indefinite detention. i love it a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do smiles and sunshine steal the show at guantanamo bay with no end in sight for the u.s. military base on hunger striking detainees are being force fed behind bars. or right now another diplomatic scandal blew up in the faces of european officials this week after a british newspaper reported the u.k. is operating a secret listening station in but when to spy on their allies and equipment housed on the u.k. embassy roof is. believed to be able to intercept phone calls and long distance
11:09 pm
communications across in a german officials are investigating the claims that's while they already have their hands full with their reports the german chancellor's cell phones being tapped by american intelligence european parliament member paul murphy admits there will be a diplomatic fallout but he says the political interests will outweigh any public criticism. germany and britain are both in the european union together they are meant to be part of a common political project and so it's more difficult for them to express the open and tiger doesn't that those exist but at the same time i think it's going to have consequences it will deepen the divides between the elites britain as represented by the government and within germany. there really is kind of star rick difference there with britain more representing an atlanticist view of the european union obviously being part of the so-called five i guess together with the u.s.
11:10 pm
you know u.s. led was founded a strain in new zealand and britain whereby they spy on others but supposedly agree not to spy on each other i think actually what would happen is that business attempts would be an attempt by the governments to so madi express and give voice to the anger felt by people but then to try and put a lid on it because if you look at what's happening between the you with the us i mean there is words of criticism but then both sides want to get on for example with the free trade agreement between the you and the u.s. because they see it as being in the interests of big business on both sides so in a world where everyone is spying on everyone else in important spoke to one individual who's actually created a snooping free online safe haven. i decided to open a data center and here we're taking an exclusive tour through one of the few data companies standing up to the u.s. government in the name of privacy i think we do presidential access very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission and independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this
11:11 pm
hour here handles most of our e-mail unlike most power players in silicon valley x. mission refuses to give the n.s.a. backdoor access to its networks since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight x. mission has rejected a judge in the u.s. government for more information stored on private servers like these we don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant the majority of law enforcement requests ashdown says he's received and refused have been subpoenaed is lacking accountability and necessary approval by a judge this is actually an amiga since launching his company in one thousand nine hundred three ashdown says he's filled no more than two customer data requests from the federal government make sure your money the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have
11:12 pm
spent years secretly working with the n.s.a. regulation government contracts and. monetary. compensation are in my opinion the three reasons why they're cooperating ironically utah is probably the most unlikely home for a privacy champion roughly twenty seven miles away from x. mission. is the n.s.a.'s newly constructed one point five billion dollar data center i think it's a stain on the tech industry of utah all the n.s.a. activities are a stain on american internet businesses ashdown has vowed to face jail time if that's what's needed to protect his customers from being monitored what surprises this fourth amendment advocate is that big data companies like google won't promise to do the same marina port r.t. utah. now hundreds of cities across the world have marked the fifth of november guy fawkes day with major rallies organized by the global protest movement anonymous
11:13 pm
and the million mosque march united is concerned with online privacy corporate greed g.m. foods and many other courses and my colleague andrew farmer spoke with american activist a great coach who believes what's right isn't always what's legal and one of my big pushes with all of the kind of real world stuff we've been doing not the online stuff for me has been to get more people what i like to call activated get more people out there just doing something you know i don't even care what you believe i want you on the streets telling people about it in getting things done so i think this type of event is going to just help to get more people active in the system and i have a feeling that more people active in the system can only be better for the people do you feel anonymous might actually alienate people because you talked about the protests there which is fair enough but also they do hack websites and people could legitimately say well actually isn't that a criminal offense to be want to be part of this there's
11:14 pm
a distinction there you call it criminal you know what's right and what's wrong is not exactly in line with what's legal and what's evil and so it's really up to each individual to decide just how far they're willing to go with their protests. live from moscow this is and sharing the olympic spirit with the space of the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games has been taken on its first ever space walk the francis at mission control to witness it. well it's a very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking because we're not through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand so it's again. it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one
11:15 pm
thousand nine hundred six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of a shuttle or inside of the eye is this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cars minot's and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world now the torch has a couple more days left on the i assess before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on a soyuz spacecraft again and so it's then going to rejoin this historic relay to saatchi for the kick off in february of the olympics so we will be bringing you all the live developments of the olympic torch right here on our city. good to have you with us still to come for this hour as a court. of the trial of egypt's ousted leader mohamed morsi. from the country's revolution. libya.
11:16 pm
and the country's stockpiles are reportedly being. part of the philippines we go here on the death toll from a devastating typhoon that swept across the region could reach. the fear of local officials now among the worst hit areas of the city for the city of. communication. twelve hundred people had been killed by the storm considered one of the largest ever to make landfall the typhoon is now moving towards vietnam where thousands have already been evacuated from the coastal areas. we are also covering. pictures and the latest
11:17 pm
casualty numbers i should say they are on line for you right now. all right. detainees continue a grueling hunger strike a. deadline for their release or the closure of the military prison. to find out how deeply entrenched the multibillion dollar facility really. despite misconceptions give lho is not just a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere. full of signs of the stablished american life it is a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonalds on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell you got the best the best financial interest the you got pizza starbucks and. all of these other places that helped to set up
11:18 pm
a logistical support for the troops over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s. government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract servant territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from a whole life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's

a when thing or like rank system then you're allowed to there's the don't tell an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and a ticket bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we actually get quite a bit of time off like a decent man and we go to be an end of year as our activities for people m.w. are stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get well on state of the art facilities. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do. being in a remote location doesn't even have to affect eating habits an all you can eat lunch cost just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price a downside though information or lack thereof for a decision a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the
11:20 pm
base dubbed no stream a stand by some soldiers even so we're told those serving here are banned from looking at websites like wiki leaks for example once classified always classified. even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's not all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners too are kept and thirteen here were now in a typical so for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear
11:21 pm
the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time it was called out of sight so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges and party guantanamo bay cuba and here we spoke to a former guantanamo detainee david hicks who claims prisoners were subjected to inhumane treatment and even used as lab rats. well self and everyone else was tortured on our on a daily basis on minutes from our typical physical buildings a whole range of sort of logical ploys there was medical experimentation that was

the nearest scary to be subjected to we were forced to take your injections or pills what those were did not tell us or the reasons i would constantly change your refuse to take injections of the pills. and they sent in this riot squad who would beat them to your bones of broken if aaron cells or cages add cement floors once to the time he was beaten remove it or use hoses and scrubbing brushes to remove the blood from the cement floor. now here on the way to policeman in a lawyer have been killed in the latest spate of violence that security has been shattered by a surge of infighting between rival groups and militias all across libya meanwhile russia has asked the u.n. to investigate the security of libya's radioactive materials stockpile of yellowcake uranium in the middle of the desert is held by
11:23 pm
a militia which has allegedly been approached by al qaeda with offers to buy the nuclear stash one expert explained to us what extremists could do and could be seeking to accomplish. he is not highly radioactive itself however we did see a uranium in india some six months ago and if al qaida did get hold of this yellowcake. it is potentially could be used in the a radiological explosive device or just used to terrify people it's not very toxic but it is radioactive and that would create a tremendous amount of terror if al qaida got it everybody is is terrified of radiation and we hear the horror stories for a place like. where accidents to occur and yellowcake is radioactive it appears to be held in you know an unsecured stool and although it wouldn't present
11:24 pm
a a health risk for very short periods but long exposure to it and certainly if yellowcake has ingested uranium mine is to suffer from a high degree of cancer from ingesting powders similar to yellow cake so certainly not a total surprise they're concerned about it and not happy to have it in their community unguarded or a quick look here on r t what we're covering it on t.v. dot com right now british officials blocking it. gathering activities by chiefs maintaining the probe would undermine national security that's story online for you right now. also astronomers are having a tough time with this brand new space discovery a six tale objects spotted by nasa in our solar system the details that. are for now though egypt's deposed president mohammed morsy along with fourteen

muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see it perspire on until january the eighth the ousted leader is facing charges of encouraging a deadly crackdown on dissent in cairo last december this footage coming few here from the opening of the hearings of the first video of mohamed morsy since his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the mandatory wide uniform for defendants and rejected the call to authority insisting he is still the country's legitimate leader and during his transfer the prison police had to face off angry probe morsy mobs in the capital and other cities aussie's bell true gauge public opinion on the prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president. promised some is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and now despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi rami has little hope for egypt's

future as mostly goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters. for the revolutionaries and now in the worst scenario we have ever been since two thousand and eleven morsi should be tried but his comment that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the most the trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases and remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become. just another busy round about in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against the brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at
11:27 pm
brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security apparatus continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched in its own entrance and its own interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific route of transitional justice either returning everyone on meaningful we're taking the route to the south africa bureau and many many of them that's true for naval station that seems far away as prune morsi protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is morsi is trial will not deliver much needed justice to egypt the brothers set the stage for further instability and turmoil. for r t cairo and with for me to former presidents on trial all the same time though for
