al-qaeda the guy that prime minister tony blair and president bush said that saddam hussein had toys too or is it the al qaeda that weren't that dangerous or die hard al qaeda or or dangerous islamised so we don't really know where these people are but from what i see and from what i know from what i read and from what i learned these are just disparate gangs of murderers and criminals it's a moral issue at a military issue and that's the only way it's going to be solved. as the syrian conflict rages the country is busy dismantling its chemical arsenal in accordance with international agreements assad bunch of toxic material has been shipped out for just commissioning she recently missed several deadlines to hand over its chemicals saying rebel activity was to blame but damascus maintains it
will miss the u. one road map and design its toxic arsenal by. this is all to international and coming up at this hour it's my tryst with the right time for some house hunting. great. british town group homes are for sale for just one pound we'll look at the driven the local council to let them go from next to nothing. it's a busy day for in sochi with eight sets of medals up for grabs kind of goes on top of the medal table at the moment and there's been no podium success with a host so far today however that doesn't mean there's nothing for the home crowd to cheer for off we go now to sochi right now to our correspondent a pool score live from the media center how the poor over to you. yes there is still plenty to cheer for
a russian sports fans on day four russia's female colors are looking for their third win in a row they're just starting their third round robin match against china that's after a nine seven victory over the united states earlier on tuesday also just commencing is the figure skating pays event it concludes on wednesday but is starting as we speak russia of course already have won gold in the team event now the world and european champions are home favorites maxime front property tatyana. and they put their success down to a rather special working relationship. i was familiar with some of what seems traits my zodiac sign is gemini and lexeme is a libra so we get along just fine but when we first started skating together i told her that more than half of what people say about my personality is probably true as she told me she could get along with pretty much anyone finally said whatever people say about my or someone else's personality figure skating is
a sport and what matters is the result doesn't matter what my personality is like some would say about a coach for example he's insufferable the most important thing is my training in my performance and the medals i win who cares if i'm a difficult person. while also going for gold for the host nation right now is in the women's biathlon ten k. pursuit she's looking to add a goal to the silver that she has already won these games. it is kind of. the medals table at the moment they picked up tuesday's gold medal in the skiing slopestyle event the netherlands and norway are still amongst the chasing pack not included in counted as a gold in a silver for the two for la pointe sisters who finished second respectively in the women's. over the course of the weekend caught up with. who told us how these games compact with the ones in vancouver four years ago. because i am
canadian and it was hoovered there's different intensity level different. where in russia the russians are at home and whatever russian is skiing down the course they proudly go and say it wasn't as intense for canadians or other athletes but in some ways i think it was kind of a relief kind of feel like here too is very exciting the night of the event the crowd there there's. definitely olympic by. now some of the biggest sporting names in the world have been on the. day when russia contingent attended a press conference ahead of. venier in two days' time in attendance was. ready for the winter olympics despite missing the whole of last month in the n.h.l. through injury. and it seems that despite the pressure of playing in front of an
expectant home crowd spirits in the russian. who do you want to hear first. count. i think because we're playing at home we'll have a lot more brotherly support the entire country will be cheering force we will be united. i agree with our captain and he deserves his title he is very experienced respected by the entire hockey community and beyond so with a captain like that we can aim for the top as for our team were a very friendly bunch there's a great atmosphere among us the team and the coaches are on the same wavelength and that's the most important thing everything is in our hands now thank you i agree with everything he said. so it's well known that i career in hockey has taken its toll on alex ovechkin trademarks my trademark smile

most popular websites in the world but money was not his ultimate goal aaron went on to champion a free internet it's common sense and it's the foundation of our constitution the government is constrained by having someone else check off to make sure they're not abusing their power aaron became a political activist calling for others to join this isn't something playing out on stage somewhere where giants fight each other and you get to see much popcorn this is a fight you can join in right so if you're going to demand progress dot org and sign up we have actions every week there are bills that are coming up that could crack down on internet freedom there are companies trying to abuse their power and it's up to all of us to stop them aaron swartz drew the f.b.i.'s attention in two thousand and eight when he downloaded and released about three million federal court documents from a restricted service the government did not press charges because the documents were in fact public he was arrested in two thousand and eleven for downloading
academic articles from a subscription based research website at his university with the intention to make them available to the public. although none of what he downloaded was classified prosecutors wanted to put him in jail for thirty five years when he saw all of his wealth gone and he recognized his parents were going to have to mortgage their house so he could afford a lawyer to fight a government treated him as if he were nine eleven terrorists as if it as if what he was doing was threatening the infrastructure of the united states when he saw that he recognized how how incredibly difficult that fight was going to be of course he was depressed at the age of twenty six aaron swartz took his own life. this was somebody who was pushed to. by what i think of as a kind of bullying by our government it was several months after. that edward snowden blew the whistle on the government's widespread snooping showing that while
the government wants everyone to be open and transparent it can go relentlessly after someone who fully embrace this idea of transparency and accessibility of information like aaron swartz did in washington i'm going to check out or. some of the stories from across the globe dishonored a military convoy has crashed in the north african state of algeria while transporting soldiers and their families local media says over one hundred people on board were killed when the plane came down after clipping a mountain in eastern part of the country is believed to be the cause and rescue teams are now working on the scene. grenades have been thrown into a crowded movie theater in northwest pakistan killing eleven people one grenade blew on the main door and two more exploded inside where a ship people were of the time it's not clear who is behind that time which came in an area known for sheltering taliban and al qaeda linked militants. and anti-government rallies continued into the night in the outer the country's prime
minister refused to step down people waved by owners demanding their politicians deal with the nation's high unemployment and rampant corruption last week hundreds were injured during the worst clashes to hit the nation since the one nine hundred ninety s. a top e.u. official ruling is that if things are escalate the bloc might consider interviewing . hundreds of people rallied in japan's island of okinawa in protest at u.s. plans to move its base to a new location demonstrators say they want it off their land altogether it comes ahead of the you are some boss it is a visit to the area which is home to about twenty six thousand american troops there's been a u.s. military presence on so as the end of the second world war. of course we're following the anti n.s.a. action online at r.t. dot com and also waiting for you. on the brain phone calls as you say true knowledge is to read about the funds to bust it's buying scalding damage estimated at a billion dollars we've got the details plus the pictures of the biblical flood. could
something similar happen on mars an image released by nasa challenges the long held believe that the red planet's been dry for billions of get is find out what the discovery could mean as. a cause and house prices are soaring out of reach for ordinary people apart from one town where you can get a home for just a pound and all you have to do is give it a make over promise to live in it point boy reports. one pound sterling doesn't buy you much nowadays but in stoke on trent lucky locals have managed to grab the ultimate bargain house it's part of a sell off of rundown properties in a deprived part of the city at this sort of apply just sort of to the blue really because i was saving up for a mortgage and things anyway which when you run time is quite hard. so you have to
use quite short but you know i actually did go out which actually great for us because we got a house for problems. this mag many of the properties have stood abandoned for years after the closure of the city ceramic factories the area started to decline the roof sleeping every negative thing that you can imagine and two properties all of my commute for those behaviors the workers of the patreas which is only walking distance who are living here and then what happened was as the potteries factories started closing down people had to move forward so the communities start to disperse or this area is deprived it's riddled with antisocial behavior like drug abuse crime and squatting but the local council say that the one pound scheme and the new owners moving in should help to create a sense of community and turn the area around. applicants have to be locals first time buyers and earning less than forty thousand pounds per year to avoid
entrepreneurial property developers from taking advantage of the author homeowners have to commit to staying in the houses for at least ten years this is what one pound will buy you on century street in stoke on trent now on top of that one pound owners have to commit to boring thirty thousand pounds from the local council for the renovations and work has already started on transforming these abundant shells and turning them into brand new properties and through hey can see what they're going. looked like before the scheme came along like many britons gavin couldn't afford a deposit for a house and was paying more in rent then he will be in loan repayments to the council in ten years' time i'll be more tree with how. many people can get up to ten years with a housing crisis leaving millions struggling to get on to the ladder many will now be crossing their fingers hoping they'll get
a similar chance in their part of town. auti stoke on trent. and coming up later this hour i'll be mohsin looks at why you unfortunate agencies can't seem to get in class on the dock wallowed of sex trafficking and breaking to set. the alleged phone call between the assistant secretary of state and the u.s. ambassador to ukraine has created quite a controversy in the call like smug british colonisers cashless a pink t. and africa that basically say that that native books of phil he's not fit for the government we should have that all the needs of the baldwin become prime minister they also mentioning the help of the un to get this thing glued whatever that means
although the authenticity of this phone call has not been confirmed but certainly hasn't been denied this reminds me a lot of the snowden leaks independent journalists for years had been writing about government spying but it took a snowden to shove it into people's faces and confirm that it was really going on we've heard from people like ron paul jesse ventura and many journalists that the u.s. state department uses a horde of international grant receivers and local political organizations try to consciously and directly control sovereign nations and overthrow regimes they don't like and this phone call is legit that is the same level of undeniable evidence that snowden brought to the table to be fair during the cold war i could kind of see the justification to meddle in other countries so the soviets would create world communism but now who is the great enemy that justifies a korean regime change there is no such anime a fascist opinion. please .
i'm abby martin and this is breaking on the set so last week marked the end of the nato three chicago terrorism trial involving three men and undercover police officers posing as activists at the at the two thousand and twelve nato summit and a mixed verdict the men were found not guilty of the terrorism charges but guilty for possessing an incendiary device and inciting mob action incendiary device charge carries a sentence of up to thirty years so while we should celebrate the fact that the jury did not uphold the trumped up terrorism charges the fact that these men are still facing decades behind bars for what journalism called a case worse than entrapment is extremely concerning because while building molotov
cocktails is indeed incredibly stupid without the encouragement and guidance from undercover cops there's no doubt these men would never ever engage in this type of action so if you don't want to see federal and state governments create so-called criminals just to justify spending hundreds of millions of dollars on security theater and join me and let's break this up. it's a. very hard to take a. life that you ever had sex with that hurt rick perry. please. please. please.
please. please please. please. please. sex trafficking is a huge international industry and involves mostly vulnerable young people who are removed from their communities kept against their will and exploited as sex workers and even though this is going on around the world on the daily sometimes it takes a big bust to reveal the dark underbelly of this lucrative enterprise in the days leading up to the super bowl local and federal law enforcement cracked down on suspected traffickers and rescued a total of sixteen teenagers most of whom are young girls but unfortunately the issues far more complicated than law enforcement is able to solve and not to be conflated with men and women employing themselves as prostitutes and both sex trafficking and prostitution have numerous taboo issues that are rather discuss.
