3:04 am
also been conflicting reports all the special operation that is underway in glaus and they are some sources say that it's over and three militants that are believed to be linked to al qaida have been tilled but there are also information there's also information that one militant is alive and he's still inside the building we've several hostages. and now the information is that thirteen people have been taken to hospital and so they were many people injured these men could be the same group that attacked the whole village of the chechen president runs on to do a girly at least also militants have been very active in the north caucuses and in russia here and these groups linked to those high the one behind the moscow metro flags and we saw bombing in front of the market in bodyguard cars the temper. is that fair way to formation is that fifteen people have been taken to hospital
3:05 am
and we will keep you updated of all the special offer ration thanks for mentioned of course we keep our fingers on the pulse of the situation there in the chechnya and we will be bringing our viewers more on this as we get it for a moment thanks for this update from chechnya. and the shooting in chechnya is just the latest in a series of attacks russia has suffered recently. and we can now talk to our correspondent the tie in navajo is in a moscow for us here well the tell you can you remind us about the other atrocities russia has suffered in the last few years while there has been the raise of terrorist activity in russia in the past couple of years and this case like the others have left many experts to believe that terror to even russia is directly linked with international terror and is ations the number one of the list on the list of wanted terrorists by the russian security forces in russia's doku umarov
3:06 am
who took full responsibility for the two blasts in the moscow's measure that took place in march this year when two female suicide bombers explode themselves at two separate. metro stations in central moscow taking lives of forty people and leaving another eighty eight injured another major terror attack took place in the city of logic the guise of the city's central markets killing nineteen people and leaving another two hundred injures there has been a number of worse smaller tailored terror attacks in russia and in the region in the caucasus region recently and of course they will leave when they raise concerns about where it goes as soon as we started bombers are trained in many link them to al qaida. ok in a time now we call our thanks very much indeed for bringing us of this promise. and you watching our team and still ahead in the program this hour. central drivers are
3:07 am
supposed to go to a driving school and pass a test on a closed course like this one that we're on right now as well as study the different tactics of driving from a written test but that's not exactly how it happens in most cases around moscow. and we look at what's russia on top of the list when it comes to throw down. before that european security is under scrutiny as the leaders of france germany and russia meet in the french resort of devilfish resume viet it was to push his proposal yet again for a new security framework to replace the current system which he says is outdated well you know across live to got to mean as always following the talks and joins us now live from developed it and hello to you so what are we expecting to be said about the future of european security there. well marina as you well know the concept of global european security is something that the russian president had proposed a while ago actually and it was frequently discussed by himself and various european
3:08 am
leaders during meetings one to one meetings and various group meeting such as the g eight in the g twenty and this is definitely something that is going to come up today and. sits down with angle. this is something that they're going to pay quite a lot of attention to and devote quite a lot of their time to because of course the russian president believes that existing security concepts such as for example the nato north atlantic treaty organization is outdated because there is no more soviet union there is no more cold war and of course a new approach to a unified security system in europe needs to be discussed and needs to be in place and that is of course what they're going to be talking about today of course encompassing is also russia's relations with nato itself the upcoming summit of the treaty organization in lisbon is also perhaps going to touch upon this global
3:09 am
system of european security also perhaps talking about russia's potential involvement in the european system of anti-missile defense something also had mentioned is something that the us are busy also believes that russia should be involved in so all those issues are definitely going to top the agenda as the three leaders sit down and talk business. part from the issues that you just mentioned taking center stage they are advil. well we can of course avoid issues that are relevant to the international community not only european matters that are being brought to the table things like situation in the middle east. situations in afghanistan the ongoing era raney and nuclear ambitions all those items are definitely going to be brought up by his colleagues from france and germany we also know. various other aspects such as the.
3:10 am
consequences of the global financial crisis its effect on the european economy on russian economy on the way that they were affected by lateral trade between russia and the european union all those things are definitely making their way on to the agenda ok thanks very much indeed for bringing us the subject from. germany france and russia are meeting. and german president christian wolf is in turkey a while back home of the immigration debate is raging his visit comes just days after chancellor angela merkel admitted multiculturalism has failed in germany next hour we'll bring you an interview with a little over caught one journalist and author from berlin and says the problem of integration stems from religion. as a believer as a muslim you should not learn from an unbeliever you should obey to islam and to the muslims so we have saudi percent of muslims of turkish muslims in germany leaving schools without learning anything they don't have
3:11 am
a diploma or anything because their religion tells them to obey to what the unbelievers tell you this is going to cause conflicts this is going to cause big problems so what i believe is that there is a place for muslims in this world and for their culture and there is a place for european and western culture to live in what i don't believe but. they will live peacefully together. and it's fifty years since the u.s. imposed an economic embargo on cuba prohibiting most trade was the island recently there have been some minor policy changes under the obama administration but the main restrictions are still in place costing the u.s. economy over a billion dollars a year archies got edgecumbe reports on the emergence of new factors which could cause a rethink of the blockade. politics
3:12 am
aside americans miss cuba at this club in washington d.c. they make most of probably the only thing americans can be gleaned court from the communist island the rhythm. while the love for cuba flourishes on the dance floor it goes cold when the revision of the fifty year old embargo is up for discussion where the matter. why should we give them after all these years benefits of trade relationships more tourism everything like that when they basically say they're not going to change their system whatsoever but that doesn't stop the u.s. from dealing with china the same standard that applies for china does not apply to cuba has a communist regime that has a state undynamic model that is is is sort of its very weak engine china has a big economic engine in other words you were represents everything we're against it's a totalitarian repressive communist state but unlike china can't lend us money and

cuba is criticised for violating human rights not without a reason and the harshest criticism comes from a nation that slammed world wide reaching human rights at its one tunnel bay prison which it runs in cuba the embargo was the way the u.s. punished the castro regime for seizing power you know interesting nine. and weak that wiping out the vast share americans had in the cuban economy arguably the idea behind our goal was to let castro's regime wear out and prompt people to revolt against it it's been fifty years and it never happened let's lift the embargo will sell more products there more americans will be able to spread their influence there i think it's our best hope for having influence in cuba when that wonderful day comes when the castro regime falls the embargo has been largely seen as in fact if it's given the castro regime a handy excuse for the failures of its socialist experiment it's hurting the very

cuban people that we claim to be helping cuba now hosts businesses from europe canada latin america and mainly leaders zomby it's beautiful resorts but booming tourism does not seem to make life easier for every day cubans they're set to make four cents of every dollar a foreign company pays that the government takes the rest which q. or has recently taken steps to modernize its economy now over half a million people are allowed to engage in small private enterprises but for the u.s. to lift the embargo there needs to be a prick magic reason ideological ones have proved unsustainable there's a really strong and i think economic interest people are seeing there are markets that can be exploited and if we don't take care of them. or if we don't jump in europe is just going to feel it for us and that's not nor interest and then there's the question of oil and that's a new thing as well moreover russian and spanish companies are queuing up to help
3:15 am
cuba exploited supposedly huge offshore oil reserves the opposition over the embargoed here in washington has long been down to this question will trade with cuba make the castro regime stronger or will it eventually help bring them down but some would argue the regime is not the biggest issue here the u.s. deals with china all right one thing that could make the u.s. really care about cuba is what it can get from it salsa wrong cigars and beaches maybe not strong enough oil on the other hand could have a bigger potential going to check on our t. washington d.c. . and check out our website for the latest updates on everything we're covering as well as expert analysis blogs and videos at our team dot com here's a taster of what's on the line right now. party in veils the secrets behind the russian terminator cocktail a tipple to activate your mind of your physical power. and you probably heard of

the red sea and black sea water you know about russia's white sea. and russia's and some as for the bad roads and reckless driving almost thirty thousand people lose their lives in traffic accidents every year and as thomas found out the problems start with the learner drivers bribing their way behind the wheel. welcome to russia where the roads are notoriously bad driver safety seemingly optional and the traffic notorious they were doing it. with very busy traffic which has been poorly organized and which requires improvements interchanges have been made in efficiently traffic lights haven't been working properly and road signs are located in such a way that drivers often can't even see them all this results in numerous accidents
3:17 am
. in two thousand and nine alone there were nearly two hundred four thousand car accidents the human cost was twenty six thousand deaths and more than a quarter of million people seriously injured the international transportation formalists russia as having the most traffic deaths per capita in the world many believe corruption and general lack of knowledge are to blame. do you know the traffic signs. i do what does this one mean. i don't know. i don't know oh isn't this amazing drivers are supposed to go to a driving school and pass a test on a close course like this one that we're on right now as well as study the different tactics of driving from a written test but that's not exactly how it happens in most cases around moscow. there are two problems with fake driving licenses the first is that criminal groups
3:18 am
issue fake licenses of such a high quality that only a specialist can see it's fake. fake license and think it's real the other problem is bribes and driving schools to pass driving tests this girl wishes to remain anonymous but for the purposes of television we will call her like many russian drivers she's purchased her license illegally so how much did it cost her. well the actual amount is eight hundred years dollars but there was that money i think should be from a driving school i was supposed to attend classes and so on but i was living in st petersburg at the time so i couldn't shop at the school. but as country learned learning how to drive properly isn't as essential as having the proper pay off some of my father's the officials would back me only for money and that is why there was no need for me to obtain my license in a traditional way it's easier to buy it he took me to some distant metro station in moscow suburb they are they invited me to a room the issue of my driving license to me into my photograph i was so ashamed i
3:19 am
said i am sorry i will really learn how to drive the answer and it doesn't matter to us. and now even thinks she may be a threat on the road. yes i have a feeling that i'm a threat to pedestrians a few days ago i feel to see a bicycle rider in the dark i think that can serve as just prompting many to call for a complete overhaul of russia's driver's education system that the system won't like it's not enough to fire a bribe to it's necessary to change the entire system as long as there is demand then you'd be supplying we need real changes at the high level in the interior ministry we're probably even at the state management level and hopefully making russia's roads a safer place to be sean thomas or moscow. else i'll take a look at some other stories making headlines around the globe in strikes and france have hit the fuel supply hard forcing some petrol stations to close and airlines to cancel
