it's six am in moscow i match reservation you today's top stories and a look back at the week's news the breakthrough that never happened iran and six world powers failing to reach an agreement on tehran's disputed nuclear program france refusing to accept any short term deal stalling discussions with iran's supreme leader accusing paris of open hostility negotiations scheduled to resume in nine days while american willingness to work out an agreement was sharply criticized by its ally israel or his policy or reports from tel aviv. delegation of high ranking american officials is currently in jerusalem where they will be updating prime minister netanyahu government on these talks that happened over the weekend in geneva and the progress that was made and wasn't made the israeli prime
minister benjamin netanyahu says that the impending deal is bad and dangerous those are the words that he used he agreed it was failed to be reached this agreement of course coming between iran and the united states russia france and germany and bush and there's one yahoo however saying that the proposed deal will lift the pressure of sanctions which have taken years to put into place and at the same time it leaves iran with its nuclear program and its enrichment capabilities intact what is being proposed now is that. all of that capacity we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid i think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interest of our country and the globe particularly our allies like israel despite the fact that the diplomat diplomats could not come to agreement the united states and its allies have said that they have narrowed their differences with two ran in
the talks that took place over this weekend the main difference comes from the objection from four months with france objecting strenuously that the proposed deal would be would do too little too could iran's uranium enrichment program or stop the development of a nuclear reactor that would be capable of producing plutonium the french foreign minister laurent fabius say that he could not accept what he called a fool's game the talks will resume in some ten days and then we will see a fresh bid to end this common standards there are out there we spoke with international experts who share their thoughts on the nuclear talks in geneva. some believe that the french are very close both israel and the saudi regime and that they have a great deal of influence they are playing good cop bad cop with the americans obama is suddenly being much more reasonable and he's attitude with the iranians
the french are out there on the flank saying oh you must agree to easily israel must be protected and so on iran says we're going to be more cooperative we're going to be more transparent at the eye to same time and wants the out of sight to be more serious that they have to start lifting the genocide of sanctions those sanctions are killing ordinary iranians in iran the slight warming in relations with the u.s. provoked a furious backlash there. some are blind conservatives they're furious at attempts to engage with washington venting rage by burning effigies and throwing stones at the former us embassy building more online at r.t. dot com. britain allegedly operating a listening post in the heart of the german capital targeting parliament in the chancellor's office it's believed the eavesdropping apparatus is hidden in this tent like structure on the embassy roof step to wait steps away from the bundestag sparely capable of intercepting phone calls and long distance communications across
the city revelations based of leaked documents hit a raw nerve in berlin that's been trying to get washington to explain its tapping of on the merkel's phone london said it doesn't comment on intelligence matters but yen stall murphy from the german pirate party says the country knew its allies were listening in. the german government of course didn't notice what was happening on the roof top of the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that big what's going on that . i think that the german interior secret service they are not allowed to investigate the l a's and this is simply because germany right now is such a class pot now of the b. of the u.s. and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up the ladder in a face of the n.s.a. as far reaching surveillance program hardly any tech firm can guarantee one hundred percent privacy artie's marina porton i met the owner of
a small provider in the western u.s. who so far managed to stave off government eavesdropping. 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. 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 you're going on 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 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. . vast rescue operation underway in the philippines after the country was battered by one of the biggest typhoons ever to make landfall it's feared up to ten thousand people may have been killed but the government says that figure can't be confirmed so far. and i'm glad that we. can be ok as heartbreaking footage of what happened to some parts of the philippines more than four million people affected by the superstorm that destroyed thousands of homes in the worst hit areas thousands of troops have been deployed to help rescue operations that have been hampered by roads blocked by or damaged by debris the typhoon is already reaching vietnam leaving at least six dead there and forcing hundreds of thousands to flee low lying in coastal areas it's expected to move on
to southern china where state of emergency has already been declared we ask meter ologist robert horror what should be done to minimize the consequences of such disasters in the future. the intensity the energy in the storms in the pacific you've gone up by fifty percent over the last thirty years or so and this is largely due to the warmer ocean wormer atmosphere so we're going to see more of these very severe storms so-called three four five category storms now in some cases when the communications systems are very active we can give good warning to other people in other cases when those are not there or not as robust it's very difficult for everybody to know that it's such a severe storm is coming so preparation is going to be absolutely essential and the countries are clearly going to have to make the kind of decisions about how they're close or populated in order to minimize the impact. still to come on the program
a place where you could put a price on human life. fun fact about guantanamo apparently the life of an. little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars meanwhile life goes on for troops and civilians living on base at the u.s. military's guantanamo bay outpost on the stasi turf in a special report from cuba later this hour. plus the arab spring in the dock the trial of egypt's i was to the leader of mohamed morsi a drawer and on the first day we look back at what some words from the country's revolution. but first two people killed scores wounded in saudi arabia's police dispersed an immigrant protest this amid a crackdown on illegal foreign workers launched by the government last week they're being crowded out by the thousands after the end of an amnesty deadline adam kugel middle east researcher for human rights watch thinks that employers in the kingdom have unchecked control over their workforce problem with the foreign labor center
saudi arabia is really the way to go in which the country regulates to present workers on its soil. all workers in the country are governed by was known as the sponsorships system whereby they are under one direct employer employer has an inordinate control over there beside you it is a difficult country to convert so isolated in the early access to get a national ice or international human rights organizations and the like and i think it's just difficult to to get information out of it that being said i mean the crackdown that we're seeing right now is why it's we. i think this is just the beginning of what's going to be a long series of frankly are stories emerging from that country. more than a dozen detainees remain on a hunger strike at guantanamo bay protesting indefinite detention and alleged use of torture at the facility and then inside of the barbed wire civilians and military staff at the base enjoy the comforts of home as artie's honest us
a church to reports. 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 a 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
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 away from your 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 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 linger to be an end of year as our activities for people of m.w. are stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is
available to team get 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 if you do a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the 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 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 too are kept and thirteen here were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time because go to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prison or 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 during the arctic or is it goes inside the facility in a special series of reports airing every thursday night. we're not psyched to active camp at guantanamo where patients are forced that the months after the first strike never turn world's attention to the place that summed up the gulag of our times. deposed president morsi a plus fourteen other muslim brotherhood members brought before a court monday only to see proceedings postponed till the start of january the country's former leader accused of ordering a deadly crackdown on protesters around the presidential palace in cairo last december this footage from the opening of the hearings the first video of morsi since his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the mandatory white uniform for
defendants and rejected the court's authority saying he's still the country's legitimate leader during his transfer to prison police were confronted by angry approach the mobs in the capital and other cities are teams belcher reports that. the. crimea sam is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song so 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 protest his backing 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 comic 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 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 off the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands. the rest it's 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 fact that's 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 brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's of the ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security apparatus continues to shape decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched in its own and from its in its own interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific group of transitional justice either we're turning everyone a meaningful choice and we're actually taking the route of the south africa. and
many many other that is too funny that seems far away as pre-move protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is trial will not deliver much needed justice to egypt the brothers set the stage for the instability and turmoil. for r t. a nuclear cleanup team of japan's fukushima nuclear plant is reading for one of the most hauser's work yet they are trying to remove the facilities fuel rods to a safer location the procedure needed to stabilize the site crippled by an earthquake and tsunami two and a half years ago removing the spent fuel from a poor inside one of the reactors presents serious risks and even a slight mishap could release a huge amount of radiation into the air a nuclear expert arnold gundersen says given the risk he thinks neither fukushima's operator tepco or japan's government could be trusted. it's very dangerous it's never been done before but it has to be done it's not like it can be avoided the
risk of keeping nuclear fuel way up in the air on that pool given the seismic problems of a building that's been exploded are too severe so it has to be moved. the problem will be that we've got tokyo electric moving it and there's not a lot of faith in this world for the competency of tokyo electric there's no international oversight there and that's the problem it's tokyo electric is basically saying trust us when we have no bases trust electric i think the japanese government is not telling its people the truth and what it really boils down to is that they're measuring the radiation with these radiation detectors in the air but they're not registering what these people are breathing in and the inhalation dose from the dust that's on the ground is not included in the japanese calculations so
it's critical for these people to stay away stay away from these areas and so russians are fond of saying everything is possible in russia apparently the same applies in neighboring beller take a look one motorist in the country got a real demonstration of force power when he tried to cross this intersection. thank goodness for dash cameras you never know what's going to happen out there on the roads plus. not exactly a royal welcome as the dutch king is pelted with rotten tomatoes during a visit to moscow by the outlawed national bolshevik party find out what got them so hot under the collar at archie dot com. syria pushing ahead with chemical disarmament in accordance with agreements brokered by the u.s. and russia despite assurances from the world's chemical weapons watchdog washington's now doubting implementation of the deal. an anonymous u.s. official said there is reason to think syria's government may be intending to hold back from destroying all its toxic deterrent washington's refused to trust damascus
and continue to back the opposition syrian conflict expert gerardo coleman thinks the u.s. is trying to draw attention away from rebel atrocities. think the west is very very desperate in syria right now they've been bogged down there now for two years with foreign mercenaries and foreign terrorist groups they've been basically sending over the border from turkey from lebanon from iraq and neighboring countries so they are not really interested in disarming syria this is not a question of disarming syria this is basically a smokescreen what they're really trying to do is cover up for their own crimes the crimes of the groups that they've been sending into syria now since two thousand and eleven these are these are clerical fascist groups extremists are funded by saudi arabia and qatar and israel and what they're trying to do is to divert attention from the terrible atrocities being committed by these groups and blame the assad government again but there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of the
use of chemical weapons against the syrian population by the syrian government. on its way home russia's soyuz rocket with the two thousand and fourteen olympic torch aboard as successfully unlink from the international space station these are the latest pictures from the capsule as it heads towards the earth earlier this week the symbol of the sochi games traveled to the i assessed for historic first two russian cosmonauts took the torch on its first spacewalk saturday while i would say the station the pair saved the moment for posterity by taking pictures with their helmet cams despite the torch having traveled to space twice in one thousand nine hundred six and two thousand this is the only time it's ever been taken outside the spacecraft will bring you updates on the torch as it continues its long journey back to earth remember our live coverage starting at three g.m.t. for the camera britain's aristocrats may live in the luxury of homes but all of the splendor comes with some crushing maintenance costs in some cases the landed gentry of yesteryear having to take menial jobs to make ends meet or reports whether one
speaks of the british aristocracy be traditional a landed gentry are noble men of what would imagine lavish lifestyles the grand estates as it would have been centuries ago but the reality today is not quite up to par as it would have been in the past. i'm on what we called the job seekers allowance so i have to support this markup all on a single man's loans so each of us gets five pounds a day my wife and i this isn't what one would expect to hear from an earl heir apparent to the marquise side of aylesbury the estate has been in the family for a thousand years but he's now in a fierce legal battle with the state's trustees with no access to his money i have no money to heat the house there is the horten with us so when my wife and i want to wash we go down to the public both of them over the financial times reports high court cases of beneficiaries challenging trusts doubled from two thousand and ten
to two thousand and twelve coinciding with the financial crisis the cost of looking after a large house is staggering on a yearly basis this stately home in norfolk was built in the late nineteenth century and while much of the state remains intact parts of it have been left to wreck and ruin and restoring it to its full glory could cost up to three million pounds add to that gas electricity water maintenance the list goes on around sixty percent of british historic homes are now open to the public and use for various purposes such as weddings conferences and tours and this one in particular used to be used as a wedding venue and the reason for such diversification is to be able to generate some income for properties that are very expensive to keep them going the reality is that the cost of maintaining these houses is so great now their stocks it tend to be a very acidic rich but cash pool something that holds very true for this girl even
