one of the russian capital you're watching r.t. i'm marina joshie welcome to the program emergency crews are searching forests in southern siberia for potentially toxic wreckage from the unmanned russian cargo space ship that crashed on wednesday the progress vessel was ferrying food and fuel to the international space station when it fell back down to earth for the first time in a thirty year history artist peter all over has the latest. the rocket broke into three separate pod says it failed to reach the required speed to carry it out through the earth's atmosphere it spread itself over a wide area of forest in southern siberia they said saying they're confident there was nobody there however at this time of the year and not particular area it's very popular with local people going out picking nuts picking berries so the process of finding out if anybody was caught up in this incident was the authorities have said
5:02 am
though and they are saying to locals in the area is do not go out into the woods searching for pieces of this wreckage they don't want to see anybody going out hunting for stephen is around that area where there could be any kind of toxic spill and becoming contaminated too to a breach in a fuel cell or a fuel line the soyuz rocket that was carrying it as this carrying the progress module now they so used to look at maybe the piece that they're keen to look at the soyuz as it stands the only tool mankind has to carry human beings into space in the only ferry between earth and the international space station we are hearing from inside. that until they find out what caused this the soyuz will be grounded and will be grounded until they find out anything else what we are hearing is the scope of the currently six astronauts on board the i.s.a.'s from russia the united states japan now they were giving a huge they were given a huge resupply from the last shuttle mission that can last them for several more
5:03 am
months quite comfortably now what i mentioned earlier on though about the soyuz being grounded we're hearing this is where we could see a problem for the crew on board the i.s.a.'s six people up there. will docked at the international space station at the moment there are only three seats on full it's a soyuz module now should they have to try and evacuate people from the space station their only space for three people all not module without as i say. no space shuttle anymore only the soyuz the only way to get up there and take people up there and take people without this could prove something that we're going to have to keep an eye on the food situation though it all comes down to the astronauts training and they'll be looking to get food up there soon as possible to them. peter oliver the founder of the capitol science connections innovation agency dr patrick full excess it's unlikely that the rocket could have caused any casualties the launch
5:04 am
trajectory of all of these craft tends to pass over very sparsely populated regions or even over the ocean in the case of the u.s. launches so the risk is really very very remote indeed i think that's that's not something that we need to be overly worried about the provision of a new launch vehicle and a new launch. something that pretty expensive of course it's all in short or imagine it is in the case of the russian launches it's all insured so the cost is covered but you know it's a pretty costly process i would be willing to put a figure on it but certainly tens of millions of dollars must be the most sort of assessment. and still have for you this hour here on r t a security breakthrough north korea says ready to return to the six party negotiation table as its leader kim jong il says he'll consider a moratorium on nuclear testing. and nice work if you can get it football superstar semi auto science

a deal with russia's ambitious. find out that i watering salmi he used to be paid. what a dad or alive a reward of almost two million dollars has been offered to any regime loyalists who delivers colonel gadhafi to the rebels he has also reportedly been promised safe passage out of the country if you're announces his leadership could offer his whereabouts from a is a mystery the rebels think he is in or around tripoli the opposition claims to be in control of most of the capital but there are still reports of resistance by government loyalists and while the balconies carve up of libya's vast oil riches is already in full swing r.t. sara for three ports on the western powers lining up for a piece of the pie. hill to the house of mesa motor was and you'll strike oil whether or not the sayings true when it comes to libya will it's going to play
5:06 am
a pivotal role in the country's future q we have to fear restructure interest. the western interest to protect it well. also to rebel to i don't really. need them government interest to start spending all this it's possible to change it to the concept of friends with benefits. being quick to casey up to the new transitional council inviting the public face of the group that made djibril to italy. these places do appear an ally when the nato bombing campaign began back in april rima poor up please. which sides began courting the rebels in the top of the agenda visit is expected to be discussions about italy's lucrative energy contracts with libya before the war almost a third of italy's daily energy needs were imported from libya an oil giant any was the largest foreign operator in the country the government here have been doing all
5:07 am
they can to safeguard these contracts but the if they will be able to maintain these previously close business cards is by no means a given in a post gadhafi libya the future likely extremely uncertain and there are little guarantee one of the biggest problems for both italy and other western countries since the beginning of the war has been the struggle to adequately understand the internal workings of the rebels themselves. amongst the rebels there are many factions islamist tunisian people. it's just organized and chaotic and many chiefs of these groups of rebels are from the politicians that before were with gadhafi and then they completely changed their face they went with the wind as they say i need to i think corrupt politicians. of all met gadhafi personally on a number of occasions three business connections less than a month ago she returned from a fact finding trip to libya with a handwritten letter she says was written by gadhafi to berlusconi in it he
5:08 am
allegedly says he was surprised by your decision to join the coalition against libya especially after we signed the friendship and cooperation treaty between our two sides the treaty he's referring to he was trying just two months before the libyan uprising the letter goes on to ask why did you join our enemies without any diplomatic dialogue or investigation berlusconi now seems to be making the friends the waltz that may be the final chapter the gadhafi anything of the conflict will continue. i would dare to say that the end of gadhafi opens up. a new phase of the war which is among the rebels themselves there is no consensus both in italy and in general in the upcoming meeting on who will be the person to talk to who will be the future reference points in the new libyan now is silly along with many in the west could well find that previous lucrative relations may turn out to be just as
5:09 am
there were in full the friendships there are. layers has it's now taking a backseat after helping the rebels advance into tripoli but admits it's to staying in the hunt for colonel gadhafi u.s. government adviser on terrorism dr weil it fara says that gadhafi could still mount a counter offensive while the rebels face some stern tests gadhafi has many supporters in his birthplace and many supporters in the south if gadhafi has left the tripoli area up to the south he could well unleash a new insurgency so his regime will go but they will become the new rebels and the current rebels now will become the new regime so we are still far away from a complete stable libya number one is to form quickly a new unit or multiple units of the libyan army because what we have right now is a multitude of militias many of these militias are islamist militias they have their own political agenda and then you have weapons in the hands of many people
5:10 am
plus you have weapons of mass destruction or nonconventional weapons that are across libya and that has to be secured so a lot of issues have to be addressed really before only focusing on qaddafi or even thinking of the contracts the oil contracts to come. meanwhile one of america's best known senators believes it's russia that could be next in line for libya's dollar prizing former republican presidential candidate john mccain is lashed out of moscow on the american c.b.s. news channel saying the spirit of the arab spring is due to spread and could also reached a gun if she can has the details from washington. senator mccain has got a very far far fetched that's for sure he's sure that the so-called arab spring will rage on and will make it to countries like china russia which according to mccain need democracy just like libya does by the way at some point even said libya has already achieved a democracy which judging by the situation on the ground is really far from reality
5:11 am
because even as the transitional national council takes over in tripoli that's not the government that was chosen by the libyan people and many libyans are outraged by the fact that foreign powers of essentially made those choices for them and looking back at egyptians to don't seem to have achieved what they were fighting for so as far as democracy is concerned in those countries there's still lots of questions but according to mccain it's all great in the fire of our praising should move on to other countries first stop syria according to the senator right after could alfy he said it's bashar assad who is next to a fault but too many mccain's statements are not surprising really because he's seen as a mouthpiece to those forces in washington who have this hawkish mentality and would want to see some countries go upside down especially rich nations or strategically important ones it's quite interesting that senator mccain is pointing at some of the world's richest countries russia that sitting on vast natural resources and china which is developing extremely rapidly it's america's biggest

creditor it's the world's number one export of goods as we know the center is basically calling for revolutions in those countries presuming that their livelihood is soledad that they need to rebel immediately poll showed that most americans are not happy with where their economy is going also they're not happy with their president is approval rating is below forty percent the nation's fourteen plus trillion dollar debt continues to rise the economy is not generating enough jobs and unemployment remains above nine percent as we know following mccain's logic though does that mean that americans too would have to take to the streets and rebel and root balt not clear really someone i want to have to ask him that question because there's a lot of discontent in mccain's home country but to senator mccain obviously you know haley is other people as one why is french writer said. that is poured in there while the u.s. and some e.u. countries are calling for an arms embargo and wider sanctions to be imposed against

syria following the crackdown there are russia and china are opposed to the plan was moscow saying countries should be encouraging dialogue in syria not punishing it with reports from the country scares and hard to verify the way it's perceived from the outside is decidedly one sided as mary if an option in our reports we get it wrong or quote in the morning this is how the world has been watching them dressed in syria through mobile phone cameras i want to food from the was stricken country has flooded international news or rather blooded killings and executioners supposedly at the hands of president our son's military coup and cell phones have become a trademark of the regime syrian officials those seized the scenes a staged the youth credible and eye witness account is not credible and could become requests now and shout help they're killing us next door. these are not credible ways to assess a situation the u.n. has condemned over the violence against his people the damascus emphasizes from

a far off until recently no u.n. mission has crossed the syrian border hyundai's a correspondent with saudi arabia based at rb international news channel in syria he says the government should claim itself for the country's image and the deal it might like he is a banned foreign journalists and fact finding missions from coming in and they don't allow us to work they cannot just take a camera and go filming even here in damascus and you should and i would never wait till the government made a statement there are ten million reporters in the country that everyone has a phone why should they wait with the lack of access to information many people have used their cell phones to film what's been happening and to share it with the rest of the world. but this is what went against censorship is a double edged sword while mobile home video can give anyone and perhaps help save lives it can just as well be used to transform the truth and that could come at the
