suicide. because of well another son the growing within europe italian students and teachers of god for nationwide protests the road rage by cuts to education spending which is what you can impose by the government ahead of prime minister mario monti and refuse to have more news to come thousands of people of my ninety cities across italy. internationally investor and author james wrote jews told us the e.u. may have got the prize than for bringing together nations but it could actually go forward. i assure you next week or next month when people are out rioting in the streets again in parts of europe they're not going to care about this. nobody's going to remember it except whoever gets the check the checks going to be spent just like that but there's going to be a lot more pain in your europe has been spending money they don't have that's going to have to stop and it's going to cause more riots in the streets more social unrest more governments failing and perhaps even countries failing and perhaps even
12:04 pm
people falling out of the euro conceivably if you have a huge amounts of tension in europe and the euro breaking up that could create increased tension not diminish tension and could lead to war again in europe. before said to be a long way away but it could happen again if this causes if the present circumstances cause the euro to break up. while of course space. where the calls to break away are among the largest in the e.u. with feelings running high there among people right now fresh protests submerged in barcelona from those both supporting and opposing the region's independence separation protester squared up to police while trying to touch people taking part in a rival march intended to seize the spanish flag ok. the peace prize was conceived by alfred nobel to foster a fraternity between nations but his art is gone if you can report some recent winners of the war to fuel conflicts around the world but the common. the decision
12:05 pm
on the nobel peace prize is often politically motivated for a simple reason it's mostly about war and peace and we know that it's those with power who can wage or stop wars but where there is politics there is room for argument here we have the nobel peace prize laureates from the last ten twelve years let's bring up some of those arguments kofi annan served as the u.n. secretary general from one thousand nine hundred seven to do thousand and six while in office is stood by the u.s. and supported the nato bombing of former yugoslavia essentially bypassing the u.n. security council the move set a precedent in the polls cold war war than in some sense paved the way for more unilateral interventions by the way as was the iraqi invasion so kofi annan received peace prize in two thousand and one another you unofficial on the list mohamed el baradei who served as head of the u.n. nuclear watchdog for more than a decade until two thousand and nine he received the peace prize in two thousand
12:06 pm
and five years later mr el baradei announced that he regretted his silence over the u.s. invasion of iraq in two thousand and three at that time the un watchdog had no evidence of your iraq having weapons of mass destruction and maybe argued mr el baradei could have done more to stop the invasion on false grounds but he didn't back to our list several us politicians among the awarded including president jimmy carter . from nine hundred seventy seven to nine hundred eighty one is peace prize in two thousand and true to those who remember that ministration helped indonesia slaughter tens of thousands of people in east timor then there was al gore a presidential nominee who received the prize in two thousand and seven for raising awareness on climate change there were some arguments about that when as well and in two thousand and nine the nobel peace prize went to president obama probably the most arguable choice of the prize committee because at that time he was on. less
12:07 pm
than one year into his presidency he has just announced the surge in afghanistan yes he was pulling out if iraq but the deadline for withdrawal had already been set by the bush administration and it's worth noting that later the obama administration was working behind the scene to persuade the iraqi government to ask for a certain number of american troops to stay on but the records didn't go for it so there is only one known american head of state on the list came de jong awarded in the year two thousand the former president of south korea contributed to easing tensions with north korea and to the economic progress of his country whatever arguments for may have with regards to each of those laureates the nobel peace committee doesn't have to explain their toys the process is known to be very secretive and they wouldn't even say who the other nominees were until fifty years after the prize was awarded in washington i'm going to check out. more you pro peace prize reaction later as well coming up in
12:08 pm
a rough business report here on t.v. . well the e.u. has won a million euros a nobel prize money it still needs another three and a half billion to stay more on the face of the european financial system and other stories around fifteen. moscow's rejected turkish claims that there was a legal russian made military gear on board that syrian passenger plane was forced to land in ankara two days ago russia's foreign minister insists the cargo confiscated didn't violate any international regulations. as more of this diplomatic standoff. russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said that the cargo taken off the syrian airliner on wednesday evening was completely legal but the equipment was not intended to be
12:09 pm
a crafty supply of the syrian government with weapons components that it's documents were checked to be legal and that it broke no international law. you can use it was certainly no armaments on this and they simply could not have been any ideals of the aircraft was carrying a cargo that was being shipped from a legitimate russian supplier to legitimate customers in a legitimate way it was a cargo of electrical supplies for radar stations this is dual purpose equipment but it is not barred by any international conventions that the ship the shipping documents comply with all relevant requirements and delivering so if you type of cargo by a commercial air carriers or you can look perfectly standard practice this latest statement is just the latest turn in this very twisting argument that brood over this plane that was forced to land when it entered turkish airspace it follows a statement yesterday by turkish prime minister. saying that in fact there were
12:10 pm
components on board that were of russian military origin angry words exchanged between syria russia and turkey russia saying that turkey's move sending fighter jets to escort the plane to the ground in danger of passenger safety and witnesses on the plane saying that turkish forces boarded the plane handcuffed the crew and began their search using what some described as excessive force the plane was eventually allowed to continue its journey on after several hours of searches but this diplomatic route and the increased tensions between syria and turkey after last week's artillery chain exchanges across the border means that the consequences of this latest chapter are not finished yet. tom barton there reporting now turkey is reportedly selling more fighter jets and tanks to its border with syria after parliament gave the green light to cross border military action and the war
12:11 pm
activist ken stone spoke to us and believes turkey's are pursuing a why the gender with its saber rattling these days. it's part of a larger campaign on the part of turkey recklessly to raise tensions in the middle east with the to preparing the ground for a western military intervention in syria turkey here is acting as a carrot for nato turkey is trying to curry favor with those powers because it's looking for two things turkey is what wants to get in desperately to the e.u. and turkey also wants to become the hub of a proposed new oil and gas pipeline running from the middle east into southern europe turkey has everything to gain by antagonizing syria a dangerous game and when you were on leash the dogs of war you never know what those dogs are going to buy the enemy or come back to bite you. for the day's big stories we're following for you no gun shots are reportedly been heard on egypt's
12:12 pm
tahrir square or scuffles erupted between supporters of president morsi and those disillusioned with his leadership what's being dubbed accountability friday has become the most violent protest the country's seen since it came to power just over one hundred days ago now that's got sprayed on some go live to cairo based journalist held true but what exactly spot these clashes were they. well as you can probably see behind me there's thousands. in these clashes what happened was there were two protest organized today one by the liberal forces who are complaining against these last one hundred days this plan that he said to be able to to achieve significant change the key social issues in egypt also going to the constituent assembly we're currently drafting egypt's national charter which is being drafted in quite islamist way so we have the liberals who are here to protest against that at the same time the brotherhood came down to this organized protest of the brotherhood the brotherhood so political party here the f.t.p. the freedom and justice party against
12:13 pm
a recent ruling and quitting twenty five people who were involved in the pool to be involved in the back of the cow. well one of the bloodiest battles of the eighteen days last year when we had really was liberals and islamists in particular prove brotherhood supporters meeting on top here which then erupted in clashes this afternoon because just continue on the home of mood street where we've seen many crashes before november and december and top streets and just behind me as you can see by the museum i personally witnessed a lot of rock throwing several very heavy head injuries to talk throwing we have heard gunshots so i have an icon confirm that myself as i was able to see that right now there are small fires by the museum caused by the throwing of of mala tops and and fireworks and i'm not really sure this is going to end anytime soon as there's been no police presence whatsoever even though in more seize a hundred day plan he did say that he would up security in the country and reassure people that they wouldn't see scenes like this which is what we're witnessing right now the background to this some human rights activists are expressing
12:14 pm
a lot of what they say is the growing islamization of the country joining the early stages of morsi is leadership whatever them so they are using for that how they presenting those worries. well i mean what we saw recently was the supreme guide of the muslim brotherhood to the highest force the muslim brotherhood of course the president the organization that president calles from he made quite a contentious statement recently calling for jihad or holy war on jerusalem to wrestle it away from the jewish population and give it back to the muslims this is a very contentious statement made morsi himself the president hasn't offended distance himself from the statement but of course despite many fears in addition which is one of the reasons why liberals came to the square today we're seeing a massive isn't my zation of the constitution which is obviously key at the moment key articles in the constitution like article two an article thirty six relating to the egyptian penal code and those who really can see women's rights are really seeing a lot of islam is ation in that people are saying that the egyptian law should not
12:15 pm
just derive from islamic sharia but actually follow islamic. if you see one of the ongoing battles within the constituent assembly and also about women's rights really suffering in this draft article twenty six the same women are actually under the ruling of islamic jurisprudence which is very strong in addition they have to have reconciled and they didn't ask to come responsibilities with the other side of their life basically implying that women have to have the home come first which obviously this also is not making about men so and in addition there hasn't been any articles banning torture by the police in particular which is an endemic problem and many rights groups have been writing about recently to there's a lot of fears that this is a kind of islam is a shot at the constitution as well as what we're seeing from the missing brother heads leadership and in addition on in a grassroots level we see two coptic children were detained for almost two weeks for allegedly this to creating a qur'an they would mind as they were nine year old and
12:16 pm
a ten year old to space to be literate so when you can show what they were doing so basically what we're saying is on a grassroots level the national level the political level quite a heavy is my nation of egypt truth keeping a close to your shoulder there on tahrir square throughout the my with your help. true live from the egyptian capital thank you. bahrain police a brutally dispersed more pro-democracy protests with tear gas in a few minutes ago my witness from the bahrain center for human rights explaining what he saw earlier plus for you too the story of seven elite british more moderate was arrested on suspicion of murder a year after an afghan was killed that much more news just ahead.
12:17 pm
it always amazes me the lengths that people go to for things that are pointless people camped out for a week waiting for a new i phone that will be archaic by next year when the next one comes out every black friday many but thankfully not all americans celebrate this holiest of shopping days by waiting outside of a wal-mart in the early morning to fight over trendy plastic gifts for their children that they're too young to appreciate hey even i'm willing to sometimes wake up early in the morning to drive downtown and pay twenty five bucks for parking to watch a football game on rare occasions but just imagine a world where we actually were willing to wake up early and stand a big crowd for something say more important than some stupid gizmo or the sake of our favorite sports team just imagine iraq and that world would be yeah maybe standing around at some protester collecting signatures won't do anything we can't be naive enough to think that big corporations will bow to ten people with signs point spending days worshiping at the altar of the i phone it's certainly won't
12:18 pm
improve your country but that's just my opinion. today. these are the world. trying to corporations through the day.
12:19 pm
there's been a further violent crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in bahrain as capital friday security forces attacked demonstrators in crowded into a main street there and there are ongoing calls for greater freedoms for the shiite majority from the sunni rulers hundreds of police officers are said to have been deployed to man on the streets there were reports the demonstrators provoked the police that's been stronger a few to buy an eyewitness though from bahrain center for human rights. there would have clips of. this or we were just peacefully protesting to treat to a democracy and such determination as they were they were attacked if you see by you just quoted. betty oh it's just got the better of the protest of it was just it's with acts like of and i'm told you the pictures of stop of.
12:20 pm
charity treat to free to peaceful peaceful and that's the chance to attack people without the water to get just directed to the to the head the what the way the story but it goes just go ahead and i tried it before we were to do what we want freedom or what. more will do so not a brief now the japanese company that owns the fukushima nuclear plant admitted for the first time that that meltdown there could have been avoided tepco said that the facility needed safety improvements long before last year's disaster which is triggered in the end by that huge quake and tsunami it added the concerns of political economic and legal consequences were behind the inaction and also fear provoking strong anti nucleus sentiment to. the more people saudis or from your own story where you want more people signed up for medicare advantage out of the change what there's a whole nobody is raised president i know this is a rabbi this is you know we're under a lot of the rest to make. but i think it will be better served if we don't keep
12:21 pm
interrupting each other well if we don't take all four minutes well merican vice president candidate joe biden and paul ryan you can see traded tough words in their only head to head t.v. debate ahead of next month's election republican hopeful ryan attacked the democrats for the death of america's ambassador to libya citing security failures for his part biden accused his rival of double standards on taxes an overeager attitude to waging war abroad. and talk of a fired up debate we've got some of our own crosstalk at nineteen thirty g.m.t. on this channel people of his guests look at just how different the candidates and their agendas really are. if romney wins if the republicans win the white house they will also probably keep the majority in the house wins a majority in the senate and if the republicans control all the important political positions the white house the senate and see house then you will see
12:22 pm
a huge difference america has a huge debt and the next four years will be about who pays for that and i can tell you it will be a huge difference was obama controls the white house or mitt romney control go ahead jump in both i think it misses the point he the fact is that you know you the have any ideological debate a sudden degree during the campaign about when it comes to actually governing it's the same old story obama said lots of things during his campaign in any renounced virtually all of them when he became president and that's what you can expect with mitt romney romney's got five positions on every single issue that he's jumped forward in back. seven to leave british soldiers have been arrested in the united kingdom on suspicion of murder in afghanistan last year and after a man was killed in the incident was wrong marines are being investigated now over whether they breached the rules of combat artists or a firth of london reports of the secrecy surrounding the case. well there's very
12:23 pm
little in the way of details from the ministry of defense at the moment we know that they sent in the remains have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of an afghan insurgent and this incident took place in helmand province in afghanistan last year now they're being questioned at the moment they haven't yet being charged system to suspicion of murder and it's sort of that investigation that was launched the code of silence is very typical amongst a very very tense now that investigated it's going to be now carried out by the service desk it's and it's going to focus around the rules of engagement that treats operate under very very strict rules and if they get it wrong then they can be prosecuted now the ministry of defense being very clear that this is an insurgent but certainly as we said very disciplined in the way of detail a lot of questions that need to be answered at the maidment a very very serious allegations indeed but of course this you know this isn't an
12:24 pm
isolated incident at the end of last year we saw a british soldier at a jail for eighteen months after he stabbed a ten year old afghan boy while she was drunk on vodka we've also seen the us to it sparked widespread protest of the burning we have the very shocking. us keep your relating on the bullet bodies of taliban fighters of course this is just the incidents that we know about at the moment that code of silence that is so common amongst the marines amongst the chief that are out there as they very rarely do these types of stories make it very this is just another one that he has in that we're hearing about now sort of a correspondent covering the story keep abreast of all our news twenty four seven if you know point t.v. online of course at r.t. dot com running across a business now to be to say with a fraud in our business from moscow in just a couple of minutes after this break. the
12:25 pm
sun rises over what seems like analyst forest but here in new directions quite hundred kilometers north of life i'll stop as much of the world it's disappearing at a counter struck with great. markers both illegal and those finding ways to outsmart the system for filing down the forest of the pool more skewed region for them profit goes well beyond the future of our planet and the result could be an ecological crisis we are on the hunt for illegal loggers and it's not going to be easy the forests or nets in our chances are slim now for now we can stay in our dreams but as soon as we find follett tracks we'll have to drop our wheels and get out silently in order not to scare the loggers off alexander someone in ca has been a ranger for over twenty five years he can spend weeks at a time tracking a single group of loggers easier to work when snow falls in autumn it's impossible
12:26 pm
to find human tracks and even transport tracks are hard to see after hours of driving we get sent in the right direction by word of mouth you can see that the ground is soft here which means that twelve the tractor trails are very fresh which in fact means that we need to be quiet in order to not scare them off as we get closer. to. this team says they're legal but have no documents now xander can now call the police to take over his work here is done he is overwhelmingly outnumbered there are too few rangers working in the promote the region and the w w f says the government isn't doing enough to stop it. no one tries to stop them in just five years the force will be gone what will the people who live after. it's a question more and more people are aware of today climate change and the safety of our environment as a whole are being just. cost around the world and perhaps it's those small steps that might be a start to people living in harmony says nature. welcome
12:27 pm
to the business update on the with me dimitri medvedev as we've been reporting the e.u. has been awarded the nobel peace prize now reactions in the financial world have been different we have to say but chris we for chief strategist at burbank investment research says that this shows that fears that the euro could collapse are going away at least for the time being. in the spring i think there was much more of a risk of the eurozone breaking up of greece leaving but i think you know through the summer politicians of how do you you know more of a reality check can see to the consequences are very dangerous of breaking up the euro of greece and now since then you know the effort is all towards or the focus is all towards keeping the euro zone intact keeping greece within it we probably
12:28 pm
will see a bigger band-aid being put on the problem over the next couple of weeks or the next month or so but i still think that we're going to run into perhaps even a more severe phase of the eurozone crisis probably next spring. rather cyclical what's happening on the markets this in the u.s. it's very dull day as was in europe down slightly as you can see but j.p. morgan is feeling better the market after reporting that profits go up thirty four percent in the second quarter all right let's take a look at what's happening in europe and there the footsie on the dax showing a negative dynamic at the close just last millett minute selling their point six percent it seems that until we have some kind of decision made on the on the situation in spain specially on spain side the asking for a sovereign bailout. then investors are reluctant to boy up right now and let's
12:29 pm
move over to greece every second young person in greece is failing to find a job has a jobless rate has hit a record twenty five percent in july one point three million greeks are unemployed that's more than one thousand jobs have been cut every day over the past year tough austerity measures are likely to push the country into another year of recession and unemployment could rise even further. by this move over to the currency markets and as you can see the euro for a second day has been gaining against the dollar this is until course we see that bailout in spain and the russian ruble managed to lose just a bit at the close of the session and this is the closing picture for russia of the week overall has been negative with my six dropping two point two percent over five sessions gazprom being the worst stock down four point two percent on dividend concerns. that's all we have time for this outcome.
