middle east seen thousands flooded shores. the world's debating a multi-billion dollar democracy package for the region hit by a revolt but many argue crippling cuts mean that money is desperately needed elsewhere. and in other news new positive patients accuse the health ministry of banking on their illness as corruption and mismanagement from the sick are left without essential drugs. with me marina joshua welcome to the program and europe is facing an unprecedented way you have illegal immigration after libya threatened to lead refugees poor into the continent the revolt across north africa and the middle east as already on
4:03 am
least thousands on italian shores and as the chaos spreads through the region their numbers are only growing europe is going off now reports. they don't call them to do so they get into europe for nothing you see this tiny italian island in the mediterranean is located just around eighteen miles off the coast of north africa and over the past decade many refugees came here looking for a better life and while we were sent to other european countries nevertheless this place still managed to remain a peaceful isolated world populated mostly by fishermen and holiday makers but just recently the peace was disturbed after the recent revolution in tunisia in just two weeks the island became flooded with we've often refugees many spend their entire days this wandering around tell there have already been reports of and vandalism and several have been arrested we've been talking to the locals and some of them are even afraid to come out on the streets when it's dark it takes around three
4:04 am
days to seel from tunisia to lampedusa and these are some of the actual boats used by the refugees to get here and you can see they're not really that big so it's really hard to believe that sometimes up to three hundred people can cram on each one and actually not all of them even make it should be some get lost out there in the open sea and some sink dozens of refugees have already died this is the center where many of the refugees are being house you can see it's like a separate itself they're being given out food and water and clothes and the necessary medical assistance as well all on the state money the problem is it was initially designed to house just around eight hundred fifty people while it had to receive in reality much more than that and another problem is it's really hard to identify all these people an official say that some of them could be criminals even terrorist with the e.u.
4:05 am
foreign and interior ministers finally meeting to discuss the situation a resolution is needed fast because the vi. protests continuing both in northern africa and in the middle east italy has already warned a new bigger wave of refugees can flood not only this tiny island but the entire continent is going off r t one italy. and the eight years discussing imposing sanctions against libya for violent suppression of opposition protests some experts believe the measure could also help stop the flow of illegal immigration. even before all these. things the prospect of massive immigration has always been europe's wars tonight. in real terms it has never been substantial and we have always been below thirty thousand. possible entries every year. clearly the overthrow of the governments poses
4:06 am
a whole different set of issues and what europe will be able to do it depends on the ability of actually cordy meeting among some of the governments that are most affected the instruments. eligible to the international community in the short term are very limited i mean imagine if in two months time gadhafi is not overthrown i mean business cannot proceed as usual after this so something will have to be done and clearly one obvious thing to do or one immediate thing that could be done is a visa ban on the regime if the violence continue at this rate. that would at least avoid color and prevent colon a good duffy from traveling europe and put up his tent in several european capitals as he has done over the past few years anything beyond that into syria so using those assets is going to be more complicated but clearly targeted sanctions is the
4:07 am
kind of symbolic as well as concrete and so that the international community can get if if the violence continue continues at this rate. the libyan leader has vowed to fight till the death and die a martyr in his homeland refusing to step down amid widespread anti-government protests in his first major speech since the unrest began colonel moammar gadhafi talked of the cowards and traitors responsible for the uprising referring to protesters as rats get off the urged his supporters to take to the streets and attack the opposition who he claimed were bribed drugged and serving the devil believe in interior minister has defected and joined the protesters calling on the army to follow and support the people's demands for change several even ambassadors have also quit in protest over the use of force on civilians demanding the end of the doppies decades long as the country's leader reportedly ordered the army to use airstrikes against the demonstrators something he denies several hundred have been
4:08 am
killed and over four thousand injured in the first week of violence making it the bloodiest of all the arab revolt. meanwhile in yemen two anti-government protesters have been killed and dozens injured after supporters of the country's president opened fire outside a university in the capital sana'a tens of thousands have rallied across the country for two weeks now demanding the resignation of ali abdullah saleh the president who has been in power for over thirty years has refused to leave office saying he will step down only after national elections in two thousand and thirteen . the u.n. has can damn the libyan leader over his crackdown on protesters in a cold for an answer to the bloodshed u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton also described the violence as completely unacceptable artie's granted she can has more from washington. the situation in libya has been critical for more than a week now the protests there turn out to be a lot more violent than they were in egypt or anywhere else in the way john but washington's we action as analysts point out has been as slow and cautious as ever
4:09 am
only this tuesday did secretary of state hillary clinton come out to the press and call for leave you to stop the bloodshed shields. for leaders in bahrain and yemen to show restraint when handling the protests what analysts point out the spite the cautious words of concern expressed by the u.s. administration there is no more of that democracy celebration that we saw over a week ago when obama delivered all those passionate speeches on people of egypt making their voice heard and embracing democracy with analysts say it was easier and safer for the u.s. to root for democracy and support the people because there is the army there which is very powerful and is largely supported and financed by the united states and is now in control of egypt but in other countries in libya for example the u.s. doesn't have the same leverage libya has the we just pulled all reserves in africa it is the twelve largest oil exporter in the world experts say it is very hard to predict who will take power if duffy is out that washington's biggest fear is that
4:10 am
those uprisings in the region could bring about leaders who will be hostile to the united states market often never was their favorite leader that's for sure but seven years ago he agreed to open up to leave years old or oil riches to the west and let them invest in oil production so they kind of left him alone but now with protests spreading like wildfire is across the region the u.s. seems to have little control over what's going to happen next there also the u.s. is very sensitive about bahrain they have their fleet there to control the swears come out a major oil shipping lane and keep an eye on iran and they have good relations with the king of bahrain and all that political unrest could really undermine the u.s. presence in the gulf so they're very cautious calling for democracy there or in yemen for that matter where anti-government protests are also going on the u.s. sponsors the yemeni government in exchange for their food cooperation in chasing down terrorist suspects experts say the unrest there is very dangerous for the
4:11 am
united states as for the stark there for saying rhetoric that we've seen here in washington many alan analysts say for the u.s. is not really about supporting democracy in those countries it's about securing their interests. then issue can reporting there and more on the global impact of the unrest in the middle east and north africa is coming your way shortly but first let's take a look at what's ahead this hour accusations of state negligence a child of the positive patients in ukraine are pointing the finger at the government as they suffer from a shortage of vital medication. and moscow football team secures a place in the last sixteen of the year are police becoming the first russian quark to do so it's coming up in our sports court and later this hour. western nations are debating a multi-billion dollar aid deals for what's seen as democratic and economic transformation in north africa and the middle east while politicians and you are and the u.s. say the west should show the region the tangible fruits of freedom many believe the
4:12 am
timing couldn't be worse or am explains. in the battle for hearts and minds in the middle east the new front has opened up influential voices from the heart of europe to washington urging western politicians to take advantage of a rest by pumping in false sums of money in eight to show you the new liberated people of the region that democracy does carry rewards but it's cash that many europeans feel they have really their search over with i'll give it a broader one of those that i think we should be close to on that it will mean obviously they did so if someone needs our help to do more to say but we need to be considering the source of this crazy shit so we try to look at what's good in a world first before you strike the lake and try and sort themselves out every day at this moment in our country's going through these big cuts that money i think could be used for foreign but it's the aid package being proposed by
4:13 am
e.u. and us leaders is potentially debate since the end of the second world war it's being dubbed the new motional plan on. to the money that america gave to europe after the war to help rebuild a decimated economy and create jobs but robert oulds from the british group says we should be concentrating on trade not eight countries such as egypt and tunisia and other countries developing nations are heard the agricultural policies are damaged as a result of the european union's policies we need to have trade policies which stop hurting the third world would stop hurting developing nations and that that would be the better way of securing a long term parity for countries that are these emerging democracies instead europe in the u.s. are talking about handing over billions of dollars to the middle eastern mediterranean to countries torn apart by revolution and unrest and despite the opposition in the
4:14 am
u.k. there are also some who believe it's the duty of developed countries to help those in trouble we're lucky to have a democracy. democracy. i think the middle east needs our help it's called to. question transition that's the moment yes i think despise our problems are told we can't just close up we have to look at the world this place we live in but it may not be as simple as that unlike europe after the second world war egypt and tunisia our own rule toward developing economies going through revolution and it's very unclear at this point who is going to end up in charge and who would take receipt of any aid package that the government's made extensive attempts to build relations build up regimes which are now being destroyed by revolutions whether we're looking at it over the years to egypt or what we're looking at it's a big deal tony blair was shaking hands on just
4:15 am
a few years ago in libya with gadhafi so we need to be really careful particularly when we don't know what the full route for the final government in service will be . we don't want the job with resources when we have the road home so if the muslim brotherhood takes over in egypt do we want them to be taking over was institutions which were built with western taxpayers money westminster has been the scene of ugly demonstrations against government proposals to cut funds to some of the u.k.'s most vital services while some un doubt simply believe it would be a sad day when western countries refused asked to help build democracy others say it's the wrong help potentially going to the wrong people at the wrong target for a cash strapped to europe your average ot. the michael t. clara professor of peace and world security studies at the u.s. hampshire college believes western countries should focus on the reasons behind the uprisings and he says prices and other economic factors should have been dealt with
4:16 am
before the problem spread further afield. i think the sierra one thing the interest went before the events occurred in egypt and now in libya and bahrain and elsewhere they want danger signs and my mind the big thing to sign is the rising price fall price now as highest was even higher than it was and that and they when you had riots around the world and dozens of countries and that's the situation you have today and i believe the situation can only get worse because indications of drought in many parts of the world in china and elsewhere and that makes people very angry well in the case of libya it's too late because the government has used for us to kill their own citizens once you do that you've crossed the threshold and there's no going back in the case of egypt
4:17 am
when the military announced they weren't going to fire on the protesters that open the way to a peaceful transition which we have so far seen in the gym i think that's the crucial point actor in so voiding conflict also transparency opening up the government to scrutiny where the money is is very crucial the fact is that the problems in tunisia and egypt are replicated in many parts of the world not only in the middle east but in europe in central asia and in other parts of the world. and as the crisis in libya shows no signs of abating oil prices across the world continue to spike was cross now to our business desk where you'll have walker is monitoring the situation for us so you know what's going on in the world of business what are the latest trends there what's are we expecting world prices to hit record high well marina oil prices have been particularly volatile in recent
4:18 am
years and this was for the spiking at one hundred forty seven dollars a barrel in july two thousand and eight before plummeting to thirty two dollars a barrel that december meet the financial crisis so analysts are saying that we may see them raising up to one hundred fifty dollars a barrel again while supplies are still moving relatively freely opec says it is ready to meet any shortage in supply when it happens but some sectors are definitely impacted surging oil prices are a big challenge for airlines for example and energy prices to turn. what could have been a very profitable year into a very complicated year and transportation has always been particularly vulnerable to rising oil prices with all sorts of businesses affected from supermarkets to manufacturers or fortunately high oil prices likely to hit ordinary consumers while it's true let's listen to what analysts are saying. because all prices have
4:19 am
a knock on effect to the cost of. most items because of course you need energy to. to make products and deliver them to shop so. if prices continue to. that will have significant inflation pressures. on europe and the world. rising oil prices really like a tax on consumers which will force many to do vigils to pay more at the pump to fill that tanks and it will leave them with less disposable income and money to buy other stop the calculation is very simple here and of course high oil prices may lead to full food heating cravell everything and deplete consumer spending power we'll have more analysis in just about ten minutes time in our business program so see you in the studio absolutely thanks very much for this fuel you're there. and
