solitary confinement in bangkok was to u.s. authorities fight for his extradition. the man suspected of organizing the two deadly blast a metro with links to international terrorist organizations for no more than just a few minutes. plus the volunteers escalates in iraq with eva forcing people to live a string of bombings just a day off to the u.s. to lisbon loans to visit combat troops. in. a very warm welcome see this is all to live from moscow with me alice have but it's time e.g. is that claiming a russian businessman wanted for home swung in the u.s. may have been involved in the nine eleven terror attacks it's reported that american secret services have proved victim to huntsville mean the terrorists
3:03 pm
behind the attacks will. today a tie television channel showed a small. story that was actually more similar to a short propaganda style documentary that basically documented the life and alleged dealings of the russian businessmen and also quoted some unnamed american authorities who are allegedly in possession of evidence that proves victim who was involved or somehow is somehow involved in the nine eleven terrorist attacks in the united states of course this is something that has just surfaced there has been no mention of it whatsoever leaving many analysts to wonder why exactly is the united states had this evidence before hand they didn't make it public because surely that would have strengthened their case against victor boot and maybe have even made the criminal court which earlier refused boots extra. mission to swing the case their
3:04 pm
way and actually believe the evidence that they have so the fact that this evidence has just appeared when the united states are clearly facing difficulties with the extradition process this elsley of this is leading many to wonder what kind of evidence this is what and who what kind of sources. is the thai television channel actually relying on and why this information is surfacing just now of course week that it will is waiting for a decision from the thai authorities about his extradition date the united states wanting to extradite him as quickly as possible following the decision on august twentieth allegedly and especially chartered plane traveled all the way to thailand and it is currently stationed at a u.s. air force base in the country waiting specifically to transfer mr boat back to the united states however thai authorities do say that because the united states filed new charges against the russian businessman those charges now have to be processed criminally in order for the man to be extradited the united states of course
3:05 pm
realizing that they've basically tripping up their own case are now trying to withdraw those charges but what this will lead to and how this story will develop nobody knows so far o'brien kill muslims home most of trafficking experts that the u.n. security council needs because extradition is a must when i say. i'm not quite sure why the americans have fought this case so today actually maybe just about the money they spent on this thing operation but certainly they're very very keen to get back to the states and the consequences that will follow i think ritu point you want to is that the reason why they dropped the money laundering charges may be that they can concentrate on the sting operation where victory is alleged to have agreed to supply weapons to the park if that happens then the court in america may also be directed not to look at anything other than the sting operation so they will not be able to bring into court and to
3:06 pm
open the court the very charged when picture was of some service to the pentagon or whoever else the think that picture will go to america he will go on for a man and he will be found guilty of the narrow charges of of agreeing to supply the park i don't think that's necessarily further but that's what's going to happen while there's still plenty more for you in the next hour on are seeing clearing the man hoping to move out the way out into the kremlin. with the recent checkered history russia has left a lot of people with claims to property some ludicrous others serious. self-proclaimed royals seeking to vic the russian president from the kremlin claiming it's his family. now the head of russia's federal security service says newly discovered documents the man believed to be behind the mosque a metro blast with international terrorist organizations the evidence was found.
3:07 pm
was killed in a special operation in dagestan last week. basically these secret documents don't only contain information on what i mean by gum of contents in the proposition but also international context where the international terrorist organisations the are forty six claim also that the now knowing that the last phone told me they owned by gum also cell phone was international as well though they do not disclose the name of the country it was made with all of this is according to the head of the russian federal security service and basically this announcement and the findings of these documents link him going. to international terrorist organisations that the documents were discovered last week as a result of a special operation republican to be started ducted by authorities in which by the other himself posted by governor himself is
3:08 pm
a major figure the suspect going to organizing the deadly blast in moscow metro march twenty ninth one two female suicide bombers attacked two metro stations i believe keep up the morning rush hour killing forty people and injuring one hundred hours how they respond dallas is also suspect there are going to be another blast in the dystonic this week after a man targeting follow up on the station also called organizing around food to give tax authorities in which several policemen were killed and basically these documents also told information on the precise plans and targets of terrorist attacks which got the full force in body so this is definitely going to help the investigation the federal security service says that it now has the names of all the people connected to the blast in moscow metro at the end of march tens of you mastication is that going to continue. more than forty people have been killed in
3:09 pm
the sting of bombings that have rocked iraq in baghdad alone over twenty bombs exploded in at least twelve separate. incidents all the attacks come just a day after the u.s. and now after had withdrawn the last of its combat troops however fifty thousand remain to advise iraqi forces although it's the lowest number sounds instance song of the war in two thousand and three but today's bombings are raising questions over the iraqi government's ability to deal with an ongoing insurgency so paul mcpartlan the employee c.c.h. and says the bombings may actually be directly government's way of getting u.s. troops to stay. but there are a variety of reasons why it should happen and various theories but one of the i think one of the more credible one is that the government is actually involve itself in it in order to prevent the americans from going out or at least the troops they leave they must be gauged in military and use of force not just
3:10 pm
training as it was claimed by the americans although people are talking about forming a government whether it's allow it whether it's maliki or what have you that is really not the situation iraq has been dismantled there is no government there is no authority in iraq the prime minister cannot leave the green zone there is no military or police in iraq because they are all militias who have been recruited to wear the same uniform but that allegiance is not a national one but their allegiance either to their faction or to their group or to their tribe. well america may be quick to complain about all the countries human rights records but today but it's a. could do some work with us according to a new u.n. report which says the u.s. still has some way to go to improve the situation while in new york to talk about this is jennifer term of the american civil liberties union maybe that is the
3:11 pm
joining us this evening so is this the first report of this kind ever to come out of the united states and if so was it did that. have been many things before all this. well this is the first report the united states has ever made to the human rights council as part of this universal product review process under the bush administration the bush administration refused to even joining him rights council and after obama took office in two thousand and nine u.s. would join now the universal periodic review process is the historic process in every country in the united nations is to undergo review and this review will end in two thousand and eleven u.s. comes up for review in november all the reports mentioned ending slavery in giving women the right to vote is some of the u.s. is accomplishments but this is quite a fallback if you seriousness of this day and age should these even be tempted as accomplishments. well it seems that the obama administration would use this report
3:12 pm
to say that the united states has a historic commitment to human rights that's why it mentions our history of ending slavery for instance but the report also talks about the united states of commitment to human rights and to engagement with the u.n. process and in that sense this report is extremely important and a very important signal but the bigger question i think is whether the obama administration will turn this commitment to human rights into tangible policies that will improve the human rights situation in our country will love in the report the u.s. doesn't miss some shortcomings but it left out a few as well so what are the major missions in your view. well the report does importantly commit to closing guantanamo and to fixing the broken immigration system but the report fails to talk about a lot of issues first of all it glosses over the continuation of the military commissions at guantanamo it offers over there by ministrations continuation of bush administration national security policies like indefinitely detaining
3:13 pm
terrorism suspects suspects and the report also just does not talk about it all issues like inhumane prison conditions death and abuse in immigration detention and other issues. from the american civil liberties union many thanks as. well staying in the u.s. now in newark mayor michael bloomberg says plans to build a mosque just two blocks from the nine eleven site show you their commitment to american values with what he told guests in on the ramadan dinner attended by muslim community leaders some new york. divided over the project with some play may be driven by politicians hoping it's again an upcoming election. if there had to be a dirty word this summer that word would arguably be mosque or. mosque we have an island we have the united states. really going to be is a monument to the nineteen hijackers if close to this right it would absolutely be
