12:01 am
this is all see coming to life for most welcome to the program egypt's capital cairo has seen some of the bloodiest street battles since the uprising against president morsi began two weeks ago at least four people have been killed and more than three hundred fifty injured as morse's supporters clashed with his opponents outside the presidential palace tom bottom has been covering the violence for. we've been to places we can get to the fighting in central time right near the presidential palace huge mess and this limbo the hood supporters up there is pelting stones to see morsi persisters here who are giving as much stones back the crowds are flowing to injuries are being carried back when their stores with head wounds and other wounds from the flying stones can't tales of being.
12:02 am
so nice in the men's lee violent situation now having just sended from an earlier in the day when the plane his supporters arrived at the. protest his camp dismantled it and attacks them it's now descended into winning battles you can see some of the stones being threatened that this is a mistake to take. the heat. in the streets. bill good journalist while eskandar has witnessed the clashes believes the government's failed to respond adequately to the deadline rest i'm on the. side and what i can see is that they're being treated where you. start. firing blanks and we heard also. what sounded like live ammo present and more you know and you. make me cry.
12:03 am
but i'm very sorry even though everyone can praise when there are more there are muslim brotherhood for sure fact you know i don't know fishel response freddie macwhich you are asking right now. often journalists romsey burren says the rest of the fallout from the revolution which has taken on a life of its. i think what's happening in egypt is not revolution if it's not civil war it's certainly not reproduction the revolution in the popular sense we haven't really seen that what is underway in egypt is that the. those who brought the revolution and those who've succeeded along with the revolution to achieve many of its objectives are now divided and now they are divided around political and partly ideological principles it's not exactly value driven it's politically driven type of clashes it's not a revolution but rather the revolution is right now feeding on itself and it's
12:04 am
eating its own children in my opinion in order for the political elites for various political parties for with islamists or liberals or others in order for them to. intensify or rather concentrate their power and their hold over power in egypt so it's really it's if it's a revolution it is that that is aimed at achieving power or rather it's a power struggle as opposed to a popular revolution as we've seen in the past. and for more details let's not go to cairo where joined live by reporter belcher good morning but also how there been any signs of violence outside cairo. absolutely so not only are we witnessing violence outside the presidential palace has been described by eyewitnesses just now and we're seeing violence in other cities like a sewer is an area. and pro morsi supporters
12:05 am
are meeting in clashing in particular the headquarters of the muslim brotherhoods have been attacked which is which has already happened last week during these clashes between rival protest groups following morsi is what they called power grab constitutional declaration we want himself sweeping powers and of course the constitution which is being put to referendum supposedly next week which many of the opposition groups seized in the gist of this yes and what's been the official reaction to what happened in the direction capital overnight. the i mean the reaction really and from of the fischel level has been almost minimal president morsi has yet to come forward and addresses opposition which has been one of the major criticisms of him because of course he's given long lengthy speeches to his supporters in fact outside the presidential palace in the last few weeks. to give a speech this morning people are really hoping they have addressed the key issues
12:06 am
that he's pretty much ignored in addition there's been some reaction from his aides several members of the presidential committee have quit i believe three and in protest of of this they're expecting more resignations as the violence escalates and in addition we've had reports. why is that interior ministry is calling this a civil war although i think this is probably perhaps an overstatement but definitely we are seeing unprecedented levels of violence between citizens at the moment including as mentioned before possibly use of live ammunition definite use of a riot and the situation where you are right now. right now of tahrir square where the scenes. that have been. on the square here behind me right now the presidential palace i just heard reports that the clashes have broken out again the police. firing tear gas in an attempt to separate the two groups but basically
12:07 am
we've seen very violent scenes over nights with i would be reporting that muslim brotherhood members. the reports of my mission over that's not confirmed. having said that the muslim brotherhood sides say that this is in fact the anti morsi protesters you have the weapons but definitely we've seen heavy exchange of rocks and a lot of beatings from either side one protester was trying to by the republican side he got on the wrong side. beaten and hospitalized and apparently the same thing is happening on the other side to really seeing very dramatic scenes we've got field hospitals calling for emergency medical supplies to treat the wounded as cairo based reporter true the bell thank you very much indeed. now see here isn't there headlines over syria as conflicting chemical weapons plans

a frenzy at least in the media. a u.s. official has reportedly said damascus had begun arming its chemical weapons stockpiles and it's impossible to verify that our own skeptics are saying rumors are being spread internationally to justify greater aid for rebels or even intervention meanwhile the conflict in syria continues to spread further afield with fighting between those for and against assad killing six eleven and middle east expert dr adam and reed says the whole region is now engulfed in turmoil. the danger of what's happening in syria is that we are seeing increased emphasis on sectarian identities sectarian while trees and this is likely to spread this is the danger of the syrian equation that we are likely to see an escalation of the tensions and we are likely to see a spread of this confrontation to other countries in the region. likely to take on

more sectarian more ideological confrontation lebanon is a very fragile country a country of money. ethnic and sectarian groups jordan is another candidate turkey is also vulnerable because it faces tensions within itself and it's growing likely to take more sectarian more ideological confrontation and this is on top of that we are likely to see more and more of the regional powers drawn into this conflict as we are seeing international powers have been drawn into it as well. while the rest of the u.s. may be struggling for work there's currently a real boom of job offers for inmates in the country but state and some of the biggest private companies are now enjoying the fruits of a cheap and readily available workforce with tens of millions of dollars spent by private prisons to keep their jails full out he's going to check on tax at the start. in the us the market for cheap labor is booming behind bars in the last

fifteen years partnership between prisons and private manufacturers has increased significantly there are becoming america's very own chinese manufacturing line behind prison walls prisons in fact advertise themselves as such as an alternative to outsourcing cheap labor to china or elsewhere on the web we came across this pitch that prisons prepared to persuade private sector companies to come and do business with them take a look. there is not enough folks that will do this type of work in this country so therefore we're training bringing back this industry that is strictly has been going out of this country and we're putting it you know inside the laws and it's absolutely a perfect idea. i have a workforce that is not the kind of problems or baby sitting senator always here always will come to learn. your business or lead a wide variety of industries take advantage of prison labor among many other things
