town had dropped it changed their schedules in order to come here enjoy these talks with a lot of speculations that a deal might be reached but it didn't come to have to pass. the foreign minister of france was one of those really was vocal about his reservations on b. initial text presented. in detail one of those the rest of the nations would be the stockpile that there's talk of iran 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 an agreement that was serious and also he had said something like he was not ready to get involved in a calm game and this had angered lawmakers in iran they were saying that he really was the talks and had blamed france even calling it blackmail but what's interesting is when the e.u. foreign policy chief catherine ashton as well as the 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 year old 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 had taken quite a different turn from what was expected when we were hearing statements coming from foreign ministers of the u.k. william hague. 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 some of the main sticking points on the table will react to it so iran could possibly use to produce weapons grade nuclear fuel and house relief would proceed let's have a closer look at how the deal. well the negotiators were trying to put together here we go first according to some sources at the six world powers want to iran to stop all activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent iran would also be obliged

to limit the number of centrifuges and allow more intrusive monitoring of its facilities in return world powers would on free some of iran's assets and perhaps ease sanctions that have crippled the country's economy and we talked to. a former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team he thinks that despite the french resistance to iran has actually played its hand very well but was the singular contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the process and managed to sabotage did deal basically is a very is 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 a detailed proposal and for their good faith in their negotiations in my mind and minds of a lot of other people including those in iran that

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 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 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 leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to the american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be

12:09 am
admits they will be a diplomatic fallout at the end of the day nothing will happen. 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 doesn't exist it does but at the same time i think it's going to have consequences so it will deepen the divide between the. britain as represented by the government and within germany. there really is kind of storage and 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. you know u.s. led was counted 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 there's an attempt would be an attempt by the governments to so madi express and give voice to

be under 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 e.u. and the us because they see it as being in the interests of big business and both sides in a world where everyone spying on everyone else. to one individual who's created a snoop free online safe haven. we 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 residential access very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission and independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this tower 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 nine hundred ninety eight x.
12:11 am
mission has rejected a judge in the u.s. government for five or 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 as 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 take care of your. money the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have 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
12:12 am
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. in the meantime hundreds of cities across the world have marked the fifth of november a guy fawkes day with major rallies organized by the global protest movement anonymous at the million mom march united those concerned with online privacy corporate greed g.m. foods many other courses as well and a colleague on your farm i spoke with american activist greg who believes what's

right isn't always what's legal. one of my big pushes with all of the kind of real world stuff we've been doing not the online stuff for me how it's 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 a unite 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 is not a criminal offense to be want to be part of this there's 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 totty sharing the atlantic spirit with outer space the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games it's been taken on its first ever space walk . in france was at mission control to witness the moment. 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 a leg of it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei reason ski it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one 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 that so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to
12:15 am
the cost minutes 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 nicely a 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 r.c. are still to come on the program on our courts adjourned on the first day of the trial of egypt's ousted leader mohamed morsy we look back at one of the most from the country's revolution. in security grips libya is deadly in fighting escalates and the country's uranium stockpile is reportedly being by al qaida. parts of the philippines rigaud the death toll from the devastating typhoon haiyan

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 busted vested financial interests there you go to starbucks and . all of these other places that help to set up a logistical support for the troops that are all 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
12:18 am
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. certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to you know there's the don't tell me see i'm an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and it ticky 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 to do 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 or just to a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the beast dubbed new 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 the 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.
12:20 am
there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat. a two piece here are some head and shoulder shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time who's going to the other side 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 or to libya now where two policemen and a lawyer have been killed in the latest spate of violence that security has been shattered by a surge of infighting between rival groups on molesters across the country i mean while russia has asked the u.n. to investigate the security of libya's radioactive materials a stockpile of yellowcake uranium in the middle of the desert is held. militia which has allegedly been approached by al qaeda with offers to buy the stash one expert explained to us what extremists could be seeking to accomplish. it is not highly radioactive itself however we did see a uranium ore in india some six months ago and if i did get hold of this yellowcake . it is potentially could be used in an easy a radiological explosive device or just to terrify people it's not very toxic but
12:22 am
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 yellowcake is radioactive it appears to be held in you know a secured store and although it wouldn't present a a health risk for very short periods but long exposure to it and certainly if yellowcake has ingested uranium miners to suffer from a high degree of cancer from ingesting powder. certainly not a total surprise that concerned about it and not happy to have it in their community unguarded. right now what we're covering at. this hour a daring hacker a fledgling online bank making off with more than a million dollars worth of bitcoin that story from the week also online. plus size

12:24 am
right now it's from the opening of the hearing is that subtly the first video of mohamed morsy since his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the mandatory white uniform for defendants and rejected the court's authority insisting he's still the country's legitimate leader and it during his transfer to prison police had to face off against angry probe morsy mobs in the capital and other cities held true reports. rami assam 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 romney 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 it's comment that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the morsy
12:25 am
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 of remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout 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 feed. 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 fact this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown that that's a brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at 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
