under conditions that activists claim are in human. it's two am in moscow i match reza good to have you with us here on r t our top story nato says it's investigating reports of at least thirteen libyan rebels killed in a coalition air strike some sources suggest the stray came after a procrit off a new fighter joined the group had opened fire on allied planes meanwhile the country's government has rejected rebel calls for a cease fire are these posts earlier has the latest. spokesperson here in tripoli said it would be mad to expect libyan soldiers to withdraw from cities where there was still fighting and this is almost ironic because it wasn't so long ago that tripoli itself made to cease fire offers and at that time the rebels said that these offers were insincere and could not be trusted so certainly
6:02 pm
a lot of mistrust between both sides neither willing to need first to lay down arms but on the diplomatic trying to slightly different picture is emerging we are hearing from the country from a prime minister mr actually a baby that lines of communication have been opened and they're hoping to intensify them they say that they are talking with the british the french and the americans to reach some kind of mutual settlement that would see the stopping of killings of civilians now we are hearing the same line coming out of london it has confirmed that in recent weeks it has been meeting in private with several high ranking libyan officials we know that just on wednesday mohammed ismail who is a trusted aide of gadhafi son was in london he was trying to organize what we understand some kind of exit strategy for the gadhafi family that landed insisting that any kind of deal any kind of settlement plan would have to include a graphic himself stepping down we're hearing from doctors on the frontline in some of the most recent nato is strikes at least seven civilians were killed they were

6:04 pm
young fighters who showed themselves to be in the face of chaos from actually reaching the frontline we are also being told that they have new communication instruments with them in the form of satellite phones in the form of radios these have no doubt be provided by the international community we're also being told that the rebels have water and some new equipment so that they are stepping up the fight on the ground we're hearing from the european union that if it is ready to send a humanitarian mission it will what you said should be holding not a military operation that will provide humanitarian assistance in the sense of hoping to evacuate displaced people and also provide assistance to the humanitarian organizations working here. as opposition forces struggle to hold back advancing pro good r.p. troops are going always in the rebel stronghold of benghazi he says the coalition does not come across as a credible fighting force in the struggle even with nato support. this wreckage behind me is what slacked off got after these troops when they tried to retake
6:05 pm
control of the guardian or stopped right here at the entrance to the city and a similar picture can be seen throughout the entire way from beneath the front to the west of the cities around two hundred kilometers away from the ghazi at the moment the rebels are continually trying to advance west towards tripoli are being backed by nato planes when it comes to the spine of themselves a lot of them are teenagers both the forty seven who have neither the training or the experience of real combat out there on the front at the moment it's quite true sided situation even though there have already been the first time that some of the rebels caused by the need to have strikes here in benghazi and in the east of libya it's pretty clear that people only way the rebel forces could be effective help in fighting got out these troops is with the support of nato stephen landmen

if. but as the world's attention is fixed on libya the events have inspired both angry debate and satirical jabs a russian cartoonist has created an adam needed picture of the north african unrest that became an instant hit on the internet or he's married important i sat down to talk with him. a cartoon parody starring pigs. birds and r t possibly the best and shortest explanation summarizing the uprisings in tunisia egypt and libya . three big pigs was created by russian illustrator igor i twenty six year old motivated by technology and politics wanted to do. i wanted to

the seventh of two thousand and eight the georgia begin the major artillery bombardment of the sleeping city of tskhinvali and other peaceful palestinian by. the region which georgia wanted to bring on its control was razed to the ground. hundreds were killed in the attack. nearly lost his daughter in second street is bombings she was visiting relatives in one of the towns in south the city of i believe saakashvili should be removed from office i think you should be tried in international courts for rule crimes but when it comes to me sounds like a straight even though the e.u. finding mission determined that he started to worry in two thousand and eight and ordered the bloodbath in south the safety of the georgian president is still supported in the west they have no strategic interest in. supporting his overthrow the notion that decisions get made on the basis of humanitarian concerns is simply
6:12 pm
false it doesn't it's not the basis for the decision about libya it's not the basis for decisions about georgia about palestine about kosovo the question of who is held responsible and how is very much a strategic question it's not a legal question as it should be to boost its strategic importance among other things georgia has dispatched one thousand troops to join allied forces in afghanistan and became the leading troop contributor relative to georgia's overall population the boundless and is this fox new. the interview shows almost unstoppable praise of the u.s. is also believed to have played a role in the west supporting saakashvili no matter what his clients america's like because it's based on brakes and american archer and more we're getting ready to go for you have to be religious mr president for regulation of the bastards so you now as the world has declared a no fly zone over libya to stop gadhafi many wonder why
6:13 pm
a no fly zone was never on the table when the georgian president launched his dad the campaign or when israel bombed the gas it was three weeks in a row on the question for example of gaza where you had a blatant act of aggression clearly a violent massive violation of not only international human rights norms but war crimes crimes against humanity being created fourteen hundred people killed of whom more than nine hundred were civilians more than three hundred were children it was a situation that went on for games the problem there is that israel is the the protector protectorate of the united states and the u.s. was not going to allow anyone the united nations or anyone else to actually engage in a serious way in stopping that massacre you would think if a leader commits atrocities he would be pretty likely to benefit the now banned
6:14 pm
