eleven children and a woman are killed by a nato air strike in afghanistan that was supposed to target taliban militants but military officials are yet to admit the civilian deaths. web weaponry stored israel and jordan have arrested suspects over the massive cyber attack which took down your government websites party his from the middle east he was allegedly involved. and the atomic theory is north korea is expected to carry out a fourth nuclear test this week after this tank spotted increased activity at its neighbors nuclear site. i welcome you watching our take was made and very far. eleven children
and a woman did to the list of civilian deaths at the hands of nato forces in afghanistan coalition officials admit carrying out an airstrike in the konar province on the border with pakistan but hasn't confirmed the deaths the major u.s. and afghan operation was supposed to target senior taliban commanders but the civilian deaths are likely to the main source of tension between afghan the does and foreign forces in february president karzai told his troops not to call for airstrikes and demanded that nato avoided it in populated areas the attacks are also deeply resented by the afghan public and have even seen taliban support grow. books that high relations have sowed between the u.s. and afghanistan. these airstrikes come amid repeated pleas from the afghan government of president karzai to stop killing civilians because in course those words they fuel insecurity and instability they further alienate afghans from their government which many afghans see as
a puppet government so president karzai although he does all his power to allied forces to washington specifically but he clearly understands that those civilian casualties more violence in afghanistan and on mine his government even further these are the types of attacks that infuriate the local population like the one in september last year nato killed eight women or in may a nato airstrike killed an afghan family including six children and two women earlier this year president karzai banned afghan forces from calling in airstrikes although his order appears to have been ignored by international forces now these attacks also undermines u.s. efforts to negotiate an agreement to stay in afghanistan past twenty four team although president karzai appears to be prepared to strike a deal he knows what kind of a backlash it may have been of ghana's then in order for u.s. troops to stay they need immunity from prosecution under the afghan law and that's what they are. negotiating now the deadly strikes killing civilians certainly make
it hard for the afghans to accept such a deal and allow foreign forces to further operate there with impunity. while the civilian deaths came on the same day that a car bomb killed five americans including three soldiers a diplomat and a defense department contract in the southern province of the bull david swanson peace activist and the author of war is a lie says the u.s. media unfortunately doesn't draw enough attention to attacks where innocent afghans die even though the news articles about this strike which killed a greater number of people are dominated by paragraphs talking about another strike that killed americans and in particular one woman who was a state department employee who had met john kerry and the u.s. deaths of course are always smaller numbers but they dominate the coverage of americans are not aware of the extent to which this war is essentially a one sided slaughter of helpless people who meant us no ill and has been for over
a decade the debate going on is how many u.s. troops will stay beyond two thousand and fourteen that but the idea that they should be staying until the end of two thousand and fourteen and that we should just accept that is sort of built into all the news coverage in the united states and it's actually rather outrageous because there's been no evidence put forward that there is any sort of progress or any sort of good being darn it and they predictably killed far more innocent people than those alleged to be to be guilty an illegal occupation. and that aussie dot com you can tell us what you think the consequences will be of this latest deadly strike in afghanistan. if you think it will spark attacks from groups looking to hit back at coalition forces close behind forty two percent believe the afghan president will make forceful statements but little else seven percent think how many karzai is hand will be forced and he will have to band nato strikes while the remaining few believe the
date for nato troops to leave will be brought forward at home and have your say. on another nato led campaign where thousands of civilians were killed was of course iraq at nine am g.m.t. crosstalk it's time for those who sanction that invasion to face trial. the way the world says set up is we prosecute developing leaders or rebels for war crimes but we don't we can't do it for major powers because they have too much power in the system and i guess that's what people think they're just simply too powerful the prosecute here is what happened no britain in the us invaded iraq and even killing rebels what we would call some terrorists. that was unnecessary so anyone who died in that war. died unnecessarily because it was aggression right
so bush and blair killed probably hundreds of thousands of people the problem that we have in international affairs is that sometimes autocracies are not aggressive and sometimes democracies are very aggressive. israeli and jordanian authorities have reportedly arrested several activists suspected of taking part in a large scale cyber attack on israel government sites were disrupted in the attack with the knesset website still. disputing government claims that there were no lasting effects in the he's in tel aviv. well of the moment it does not seem like that israel has sustained any palpable damage to its infrastructure and we're talking about billions of dollars in term of financial damage so we have to wait and see until the business day actually gets underway at least here and tel aviv of course there have been some sites which were down including some of the governmental sites there were obvious hogs into the private accounts twitter or
facebook private accounts of israelis and that was actually probable when i saw a lot of a lot of spam you can see coming from most of these really counts some of which i had no idea even existed and they were all just information which led to various up palestinian sites israel knew about this attack the officials have claimed that they are prepared for and they have quoting to their data they actually have employed at least five thousand i specialised in order to prevent the d.d. o. s. attacks of having an effect but it does seem like those preventative measures measures have actually somewhat failed now we do know of course that the palestinian hackers they have the anonymous groups have they have promised not to stop just here and by all indications this seems to be just the beginning of their cyber warfare. we are the sons of palestinian people and we feel the pressure of the israeli occupation not only in gaza but also in all the
arab and muslim world and as the first retaliation we committed to fast and full scale attack on israeli web sites to warn israel in all its supporters about the threat that hangs over them they have weapons and we have our own means as a result of this attack we receive the names of those who cooperate with israel the aim of the attack was to show the world the true face of israel and its armed forces and we coped with our task. we failed to fulfill by using force to resist but we succeeded through the cooperation of palestinians in the whole arab and muslim world so now we make a clear warning to israel in the future be ready for new larger surprises i think euro's thing about this however is that it seems that these really hackers have been maybe perhaps even more effective than the israeli government when it came to stopping d.o.'s attacks they have also had some of the palestinian sides and put up
a pro israeli messages on there as well as they have delivered the following address saying that for every one hundred conducted against israel there will be a retribution of dozens similar hacks on the person who conducts those hacking attacks so it does seem like we're looking at sort of a beginning of a new state this time it's going to be an internet stage in the standoff between palestine and israel israel also suffered a major hack last november when the country's defense forces were fighting in former five agent anima shown believes these attacks pale in significance to the cyber operations carried out by some governments. it is very much national inconvenience to the web sites that are under assault but of course it does get a lot of publicity the difference between this and real hacking real cyber attacks can be seen very starkly what happened when the u.s. and the israeli governments committed an act of fiber terrorism when they attacked the iranian nuclear production facility is when they released the stuxnet virus in
august the first we have western governments colluding to attack the infrastructure of another sovereign country so that is cyber terrorism that is what a real cyber attack looks like and of course it has ramifications now because the stuxnet virus went out to attack these precise facilities but it's now out there in the world it can be used and abused in and mutated by real cyber criminals out there so what the u.s. and the israeli government did with stops net is that you far more damaging than any protest movement trying to bring down certain websites in certain countries selling russia as a good investment president putin highlights the country's economic growth at the opening of a trade fair in and over in a few minutes we report on how russia and germany are looking to boost business and talk about europe's financial troubles also ahead deadly sectarian violence in egypt as religious groups turn cairo's main christian coptic cathedral into the
international airport in the very heart of moscow. welcome back now north korea may be preparing for a fourth nuclear test which could happen later this week the allegation comes from side korean government officials who say they've spotted activity at the north's test site it comes after washington delayed its long planned missile test amid tensions piling up at the korean peninsula pyongyang has been toughening its rhetoric recently threatening a preemptive nuclear strike on the u.s. in declaring a state of war so the u.s. and south korea responded by sending more ships and aircraft to the area asia experts in the u.s. says north harsh words are the only response it can give to america's threatening actions. it is the declared war exercise and burn the largest ever we see the americans rolling out one frightening weapon
system after another b. fifty two to be to the f. twenty two with the exception tetra so there's a real fear now that one of these days when americans will actually actually do it i mean these are exercises goes for the purpose of recognizing attacking north korea attacking invading north korea landing on the coast commando raids and eccentrics actions that there is stop what north korea in fact blunt is peace with the united states he's treating necking a chance since the lifting the military threat in something we're talking about a threat of retaliation not a not or a threat as such but if you look at any of the north korean straight moments there they are conditional they say if we are attacked we will counterattack this preemptive nuclear strike story came about because the north koreans said
if you attack us you know the conventional weapons then since we are we the only thing we can do is to attack with nuclear weapons which is conditional just a response to american american actions. knowledge is power but in france it can land you would hope water volunteer for work at paideia is threatened with arrest unless he deletes an article on the online encyclopedia of the details on r.t. dot com and double trouble moscow. two headed albion a slate gives visit is the shivers get close up to the slithering sensation on artie's cheek channel. four news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world
has been seeing from the streets of canada. giant corporations rule the day. fatima putin has joined german chancellor angela merkel in hannover to kick off the world's biggest industrial fair germany is moscow's biggest european trade partner and part of the president's task is to promote russia as a solid opportunity at a time of prolonged global economic turbulence artie's peter oliver is following his visit. of lot to me of putin used the opening ceremony here at the hanover messy trade fair to really highlight why people should be doing business in russia one of the main point i see he made was well rush's three point four percent growth rate in g.d.p. in twenty twelve also the low levels of unemployment the secure amounts of currency and gold reserves that they have he did however point out some of the problems he
was aware that russia had particularly when it comes to inflation inflation at six percent last year and russia worth pointing out that is the lowest it's been in twenty years blah to me saying that the u.s. committed to getting inflation down is that was key in order to get businesses to invest in russia now. angler merkel the german chancellor also taking to the stage here she praised the cooperation that had gone on in the past between germany and russia or in terms of not just trade but also political cooperation on monday what we're going to see is a mere putin angle a merkel visit a memorial here in hanover to those who lost their lives in the fight against naziism during world war two they'll be laying a wreath there and then the two will be taking to the floor of the trade show and the message from putin was from mr putin was very clear he said russia is open for
business and open for investment. well the e.u. has few friends right now among its citizens as it imposes toughest areas on them to dig struggling countries out of their financial hole the latest to pick up the protests baton spanish younger generations on sunday youth without a future rallies were held in all of spain's major cities as well as thirty others abroad including berlin the capital of the u.s hysterically push fifty five percent of spain's young people and out of work forcing them to seek jobs abroad across europe unemployment has none precedented twelve percent last week and later today on r.t. french right wing politicians arena pen explains why more and more people consider a would be better off going it without brussels. which i think that first and foremost there is a rejection of the european union and its policies european people are realizing that the european union is an empire a serviette union that is in fact destroying their freedom and doesn't protect them
from economic social or migratory difficulties and i think that the increase in patrick has been to managing a country's own affairs through control of border is whether it's human capital or product flows is irreversible i think what we're seeing is the brussels wall falling down it's crumbling that is to say that the european union and its model has reached an end it's a destruction that is slow right now but will probably accelerate it was he was happening at the european parliament it's supposed to be democratic but it's not at all representative of what the people of the european union think there is a very strong proportion of people who reject this model and these people are not represented by the european parliament so i think that electing the success of resentment of al gore although it's a smoke screen it's to make people believe that there will be an increase in democracy but in fact the mortal the economic model they chew with is killing democracy.

in four falls which is a town outside of cairo and sectarian writing four of those were christians and it was their funeral which was being held at the st mark's cathedral sectarian violence in egypt is nothing new it goes back decades so we have a combination of hardline religious activism and security forces by the standing by or actually getting involved themselves many mourners and many others feel that the muslim brotherhood and freedom and justice party government is encouraging an exclusive religious identity the basis of what it means to be an egyptian so this is the second consecutive night going we've seen violence in cairo on saturday the clashes resulted from a protest by the april sixth you for movement which was calling for a new more inclusive government and an opportunity to rewrite the constitution again on a more inclusive basis on saturday caches broke out when police attacked that demonstration supporting take us and rocks once again in downtown cairo. a quick
