4:02 pm
like an eternity the people of us we are tense they're still trying to understand how something like this could have happened and the police say they'll still looking there's potential there are more victims to be found on the island is also just outside there is criticism rising for the police that it took them from an hour to an eleanor hall to actually find the to find the killer and to stop the massacre so there is criticism of all storage fees over this over this tragic incident the suspect has admitted the crime he said that he wanted to change in society that he wanted to force the revolution that it was an atrocious but necessary act to make the norwegian people realize and the society realize that it's going wrong he said it's not a crime a more details are emerging about the suspect himself who posted a rant a fifteen hundred page rants on the internet saying how he went to various countries czech republic in the european union with its lax gun laws is what he said to look for guns and he explained how he was going to carry out the sec so you
4:03 pm
can maybe understand what is. among community here that he wasn't before he was allowed to carry out his crimes he expressed violent anti muslim views he was briefly a member of the progress party here in norway which is anti immigrant and the ruling labor party is who we attacked first through a blast in the city center the government headquarters were hit by a car bomb that apparently he went to an oil and just outside where he attacked a group of children he was dressed in a police uniform he had a gun and he was shouting i'll kill everyone everyone must die we have pictures of children swimming for survival hiding in the rocks and dramatic pictures of a ten year old poor. being saved so the tragedy of a nation really hear more now in this report brave christine it will cool was hit by the local bomb explosion in a daze and surrounded by broken clothes she stayed in the laws to help the wounded
4:04 pm
but wait this just standing tough thing and then suddenly it just made i was like i feel like a fish just waiting for your puppy lofted out like last bits in their eyes. you know they got smashed glass all over them the skin and everything this show patched up victims before giving out hot drinks as a nation which is never suffered at the hands of terrorists before he says norwegians just didn't know how to react. or launched from from course on the buildings. you control things gaming running on this man's wife suffered severe short when their windows were blown out by the blast but he says they're lucky to be alone his thoughts go out to the many young victims of the second attack i think about the old regime to see something in the eyes of.
4:05 pm
the parents this is accustomed to atrocities produced many acts of heroism but the dust settles on the world's worst mass shooting experts say there's also go to the attacks were allowed to happen in the first place anger the truth or ignore dozens of hate messages from suspect anders behring breivik you haven't really been prepared right being extremism expressed fury at the government's open door policy on immigration blogs and twitter feeds and lists at the shootings may reflect growing national opposition to fully immigration policies the political establishment of norway are relatively well off people but they live in areas where there are simply no. so that was a poor people in northern being pushed out of places they used to live in and there's also their drugs that are in jeopardy muslims claim this disappointment
4:06 pm
that the killer turned out to be white they want this guy to be muslim although muslim you know. it's for them it's a little bit strange because he's in the region so they talk too much about them and about us. it's not a good norwegians are said to be fed up with their brand of what's been built radical liberalism it's the country's multicultural policies that turn the government against his own putting norway or the far right of center. why the norwegians are ready to admit and there's a polite and respectful attitude towards that kind of. mainstream media but the reality is that fifty percent of who joins are against multiculturalism is people who try to pick up the pieces and bring meaning to this twitter already saying it will sell relations between communities some expect the crackdown by
4:07 pm
police on the e.u. growing far right movements while others fear this will only fuel resentment against europe's muslims victims are beginning to piece spoke together they shouted lloyds but exposed all this might not be the law's such a turk as outrage at the perceived failure of a multicultural society grows the new bush will see oslo anders breivik said he needed to start a revolution to force a change in society i investigate a journalist tony gosling believes there's a new brand of me or nazi terrorism that authorities all over the world should be watching closely. anders breivik thought he was some kind of teutonic knight from medieval times because he's echoing the kind of crusader attitude and it's a very strange version of christianity that he is because he says he's a christian i don't think he is he says maybe the same kind of strange version of christianity that bush and blair have been coming up with over the last ten years
4:08 pm
or so so i think that this is actually the tip of an iceberg is actually quite a lot of this and you know nazi activity out there and now i think the antiterrorist or thought is right across the world we're going to have to take this brand of terrorism much more seriously and particularly worrying is that he was a freemason and as brave as declare that he was a freemason and i would imagine that the norwegian police are now going to be talking to other all the other members of any masonic lodges that he was in because this seems to be the place where this kind of christian rather nasty racist ideology was cooked up i would also add that it was interesting that the police said they never come across him before the norwegian police but i wonder very much i wonder if the secret service in norway has been watching him because it was very strange that when he was first arrested on friday the police actually called out his name to him now is very i would be amazed if they would have actually known as they first approached him what his name was i would have thought that from the
4:09 pm
arrest point that's where the investigation would have started from or the whole world is now discussing what lies behind the atrocity and you can join the debate on our side our dark heart now the king at the charts so far the majority think it's sheer fanaticism is to blame fewer people see the tension stance from multiculturalism at eight percent believe the reason is global terrorism the rich pelletreau it's everywhere and the rest so it's down to the failure of security forces and you call the odds are hard and have your set. and still ahead for you in the program about funding the revolt as ramy prepares to send millions of euros to libyan rebels we ask how will the money be used. and made to begin sobbing over control of afghan provinces to local security forces but many question if they're really out to the chop. the crowds of protesters have converged on the spanish capital of madrid after marching from across the country
4:10 pm
well they're angry at soaring unemployment the high is still in the euro zone and not the government's failure to tackle the recession artie's it in a clue sure is in the center of madrid where demonstrators have set up camp. a lot of people in the spanish media and other protesters themselves are referring to this is the spanish revolution you have to keep in mind the fact that spain has one of the highest unemployment rates in the eurozone in fact its youth unemployment is the highest in the european union it's more than forty percent so almost every other young person in the country cannot get a job it is tough they're not not they're not trying it's just it's just impossible for them to do it so was this entire movement which is told the fifteen m. movement started on may fifteenth of this month and since then thousands upon thousands of young spanish people have been gathering all across the country in order to phone the government and tell them express the protests and call on them
4:11 pm
to focus more on the domestic issues they want more jobs they're trying to find out they're trying to get answers from the government are so why can they not good jobs or why is the country in their opinion going down the drain a lot of them have set up camp here in fact this particular protest which is going on right now there are thousands of people just below me they have lost a lot of them have literally walked by foot from more than one hundred sixty cities in spain to converge here and put the console in the middle of madrid in order to call on the government to bring more jobs to stop listening to the world bank to the i.m.f. to the w t o because they're there and calling on the government to bring those jobs into focus on the domestic issues a lot of them have been camping out here for several days and their slogan right now is somewhat reminiscent to something that we've all heard several years before and so yes we can because they believe the that they these young people off spain
4:12 pm
can actually make a difference by showing their protests well our you have to understand that their hundred nine billion doubt package which has been approved for greece a lot of analysts are saying that it's not going to help the country because the. one thing you have to remember is that greece will have to pay this out at some point or another and how is the country going to do that when you have. what some analysts are saying is the issue of the rating agencies which are creating conic by saying that several countries like greece like spain like portugal who have been downgraded by rating agencies they say that these very rating agencies are trading down it which is also keeping the countries from blossoming a lot of people are saying that this what has been done for greece is not enough that something else has to be done and of course countries like germany and france or rather banks which are which are in germany and france are just scrambling to kind of keep the euro float but a lot of pretty critics this latest bailout are saying that the euro probably will
4:13 pm
not hold out for much longer and those are the very same fears which are expressed by the thousands of people were yelling and shouting and protest a riot below me in the center of madrid right now. all the one hundred nine billion euro bailout for greece was agreed after it approved severe a sturdy measures sending thousands onto the streets in protest of the rescue will also involve lowering interest rates on greek debt and extending the repayment period the financial analysts max keiser says it will only plunge people deeper into trouble. it increases the amount of debt it increases the amount of debt in the eurozone it is crease of the amount of debt in grace so this is a plan cooked up by bankers to repackage risa carrots. really sell debt that's what they do and it crowds out the real economy so if they think that this is going to help the economy grow their way to a position of paying off this debt or paying interest on the debt that's not going to happen because by giving bankers more dead to control the productive part of the
4:14 pm
economy you are eliminating that part of the economy's ability to pay off this debt so the banking cancer is just becoming worse in the eurozone and worse in greece is going to bring up the banks they're not bailing out the workers or the people who are on the ground so to speak they're bailing out european banks they're bailing out wall street banks that are bailing out other banks and so doing they're increasing the debt load so it's making the situation much worse and they're crowding out any ability for the work workers in greece to generate enough income to pay off this debt this is consigning the population to debt service is. well that was from national analyst max kaiser talking about what the e.u. rescue package is going to mean for the greek people. now this week via phone hacking and police bribery scandal the stakeouts of the british parliament rupert murdoch his son james and former u.k.
4:15 pm
see overbeck and brooks were all grilled by british lawmakers for several hours well the trio said they were deeply sorry for what happened however new allegations have emerged that the news international chairman james murdoch misled ed piece by saying he was i don't where of through extensive illicit phone tapping by his company's reporters the murdoch says could now face legal challenges in the u.s. over claims the voice mails of nine eleven victims were also targeted britain's hacking scandal appears to be spreading beyond the murdoch empire it claims the sunday mirror tabloid also celebrities mail messages was artie's going to check out reports critics believe the issue is just the tip of the iceberg in a society that no longer values individual privacy. as the scandal over von hacking by the murdoch media empire rages on public and political theory has mainly focused on ruthless tabloids out of control prepared to invade people's
4:16 pm
party lines and even the dad to get the story but some say in this day and age the whole concept of privacy is falling apart and in the u.s. more rapidly than elsewhere every time you tap on your cell or click on google or use your meal service everybody's sort of just clicks through you agree to our terms and conditions well those terms and conditions are very very heavily weighted against you and your privacy interests and we see breaches of privacy happening. all across america all across the world really in every sector surveillance is rampant but really this is all a microcosm of the biggest survey we're all which is. the state there's little americans can do with the state having sweeping access to their private information axes that followed the nine eleven terrorist attacks under a new law known as the patriot act asana law his privacy was taken away from him in
4:17 pm
two thousand and two when he was the tainted by the f.b.i. for absolutely no reason he says and scrutinized for months without charge he's response for nine years he has voluntarily documented nearly every waking hour of his life on the where he has subsequently even turned it into a form of art singled out for the sort of you just so you know that over here for example you know that on sunday november twenty fourth two thousand and seven five years of struggle i went grocery shopping at safeway over there were seventeen they got gas over here keep copies of every debit card transaction so you can see what he bought where and when a g.p.s. device in his pocket records his real time visit a location on a map and this is the shot he took on his way to our studio which was immediately out loaded on his web site hassan says his extraordinary abandonment of his own privacy stems from the ignorance of the authorities but in the here he decided well that guy looks
4:18 pm
a little different so he must be arab and if he's arab then he must have explosives everyone knows that and that's the logic we're operating we we realize how ridiculous that logic sounds but when your country when your own country and sat on as the basis for national policy. ignorance as the basis of national policy is a pretty scary situation. and that's how i got caught up in it for ha son privacy has become a relic of the past and he says he's not surprised that journalists or anyone else really would use the same surveillance tactics as the state in that sense it might be of no surprise that the chief architect of the patriot act the lawyer who put it together happens to be one of murdoch's hand-picked new score board directors and you served as assistant attorney general in the bush administration and was described by some as the purveyor of the most sweeping curtailment of freedom in the u.s. system across the era at a time when corporations and the government can easily hack into people's private
4:19 pm
lives it doesn't come as a surprise when for example social networks give your personal information to have companies or when other industries leave on breaching the privacy in the u.s. it's so widespread and people have gotten so used to it that rupert murdoch seems to be perfect part of the system rather than some special bill and with corporation has been undertaking some unique all lawful practices because here in america we are not so unique i'm going to check our reporting from washington r t. i germany says it will lead libya's rebels one hundred million euros for quote civilian and humanitarian purposes will girl that oppose the western military intervention in the country but promised to help oust colonel gadhafi through peaceful means christophe more so who's the government consultant in germany says there are no guarantees the funds will be used for peaceful means. it is really a big question what this money is being used for first of all who controls that
4:20 pm
then next has nato ever cared for the civilian population in libya i don't think so . you know a group of countries bombing libya and using uranium weapons then of course is a group of countries not caring for the civilian population i see definitely another point here i see that the important part town of brega which is hotly debated among the rebels and the government as to who owns this power now might be a question where some of this money might be used in fact to buy the tribes to get the town into the hands of the rebels i think that's the question here quite importantly right now to use that money i doubt what is official language of the german government. well if you've missed anything recovering on air you can head to our web site that's r t dot com where there's always more to be found and here's

4:24 pm
a top advisers he's also got down and who are activist brian becker thinks the u.s. led coalition is losing ground in afghanistan well the number of casualties continues to rise. they can't win by staying in fact their presence is becoming the main catalyst for the armed insurgency not only the taliban but maybe one hundred forty armed groups and they can weave either because if they leave there will be a perception that the us and nato were defeated by an armed insurgency but this dilemma must be solved some way so ultimately the united states cannot prevail the assassination of karzai as brother and his inner circle shows that the edifice of the karzai regime necessary at least to give afghan face to the nato occupation that itself is now crumbling please armed attacks these assassination attempts are designed to create panic and i think in all likelihood they are creating panic within the very heart the foundation of the karzai government the u.s.

is losing grown steadily and spending one hundred twenty billion dollars a year that's an increasing amount from the treasury that's already drained based on huge budget deficits here the number of casualties on the afghan and american side is is is increasing not decreasing and yet they're no closer to victory in fact they're losing control of the country and the government that they sponsor is is in fact in danger from when i would say the u.s. isn't gained anything i think the u.s. is losing ground it's spite of what david petraeus and the obama administration say this is a bad situation possibly a catastrophe for the united states a last name to get the handover of control into parts of afghanistan to local security forces some fear the country is ill equipped to fend off insurgency without foreign aid well there's concern that afghans are divided that we're worried it will open the door to a return of taliban rule she said but like half the story. there's confusion on the

4:27 pm
to u.s. military planners have set a two thousand and fourteen deadline to hand over security responsibilities to the afghans the afghan army enjoys a much better reputation of a police force that is even featured recently. but as the army takes greater responsibility for security around the country there are concerns that the quantity of troops may be coming in the expense of quality for starters more than eighty percent of troops are literally a big problem with the ability to read maps and numbers can spell the difference between life and adding to the was a widespread drug use and desertions today roughly one in four combat soldiers quit their post critics also point out that the military leadership is made up of many rival ex warlords who still command loyalties along regional and ethnic lines and could drag the country deeper into conflict as the u.s. begins to scale back its role as custodian this summer there are concerns that these divisions may flare up if i suffer you truly he will be here late ninety's
