no apologies all from nato for the killing of civilians most of them children through a coalition air strike in afghanistan also. something happens the catastrophe intrade noble will seem like a kid's fairy tale russia's president drew is on a trade trip to germany wants the west the games resting up tensions on the korean peninsula and told some the only solution. of rocks a busy damascus neighborhood hyping of the syrian civil war is being taken to the streets of the capital. and britain's a first and only female prime minister margaret thatcher has died of following a stroke party takes a look at her legacy the eye in lady who was both loved and loathing in her life.
at seven pm here in the russian capital you're live with us on our team with me tom what's a. a roadside bomb has killed at least nine people in afghanistan and it's the latest in a series of violent attacks and hit the country meanwhile nato has still not claimed responsibility for the deaths of eight hundred civilians including eleven children during a coalition air strike over the weekend let's not get the latest from our cheesy you've got i'm going to use our so why are women and children still dying in afghanistan i mean despite all these promises that were made to them well this is a very difficult issue for ghana stan and president karzai has ordered the afghani troops to stop calling for airstrikes since almost every time they lead to these
casualties and especially deaths among women and children he's pleaded with the united states and with the alliance in general to stop targeting populated areas to stop killing innocent lives taking innocent lives basically. unfortunately these operations are still taking place and over the years it's believed that nearly twenty thousand civilians have lost their lives throughout the years of nato's presence in afghanistan and signal is why the united nations that every year the amount of women and children unfortunately still rise which is. difficult to believe since pretty much the most volatile part of this whole operation seems to be over nevertheless these figures we're still seeing them and just for example to give a couple of examples of what happened last year with these airstrikes for instance
in february two thousand and twelve seven children or young adult killed by an airstrike then made two thousand and twelve six children two women from the same family member eight women and basically this this list really goes on and these are only examples which have been can. firmed by nato and these are only airstrikes while there are also. drawn strikes reads and so on unfortunately very often innocent people lose their lives and the afghanis are absolutely outraged with alliance and with local authorities and president karzai understands that if it wasn't for the alliance he wouldn't be the head of the country in the first place but he also realized this work with each strike and each lost innocent life the trust. and it's actually arising when it comes to the taliban which is gaining more political force with each and every strike which
takes the lives of these billions so you've got them in the highest casualties yes seem to be women and children the coalition forces are ready themselves to leave afghanistan in twenty fourteen does leave the situation on the ground well definitely this is another very complicated matter since we do know that they are planning to leave afghanistan from two thousand and fourteen but we also know that washington. has voiced the desire to sustain it gonna stand in some way under some mandate and the negotiations on this are also clearly under way and they are increasingly complicated also because of the airstrikes because how are the americans going to stay in of ghana's that if they're not going to be sure that they're going to be immune from any of the words from the prosecution again because of all these innocent lost lives because of the airstrikes they have been warned and told to. try to prevent them from happening unfortunately it's not happening so
this is a very complicated issue we'll see how it how it's going to happen of course president has condemned these is trying to place that you've got a piece going up the giving us just a an inside of the d.v.d.'s of what the casualties two of the people in afghanistan . right in a separate incident over the weekend five americans including a diplomat to one killed by a suicide bomber while the were delivering books to an afghan school and while the story made headlines in the u.s. media the killings all have been civilians is often ignored according to peace activist david swanson 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 be done it and they predictably killed far more innocent people than those alleged to be to be guilty of resistance to an illegal occupation russia's president has warned that any further escalation between south and north korea could have catastrophic global consequences that amid putin spoke at the world's biggest industrial féin
hannover i just put all of the has been listening and. president putin then chancellor angela merkel took the stage here at the house of a trade fair and one of the issues that both president putin and chancellor merkel agree on a whole heartedly is that the provocation from north korea must be stopped. we are against nuclear development and for the denuclearization of the whole korean peninsula was very alone by the escalation that because we are neighbors and if something happens the catastrophe international will seem like a kid's fairy tale i think this trend does exist i'm calling on everyone to calm down just sit to the negotiating table let's solve all the problems which have piled up in recent years just like they had over trade for one of the biggest it's the biggest i believe in the world beg your pardon it's the biggest trade fair in the world and there's plenty of things on display from all over the globe but while
. i'm glad i'm here putin we're looking around there they were interrupted by a topless then protest. president putin taking a moment to well a few jokes ago about the protesters saying thanking the ukrainian feminist group for promoting the trade fair here and saying that well as much as he appreciated it it wasn't really the time all the place to be make it well they voice tone talked about some of the issues that they perhaps don't see eye to eye on cyprus is a major war and president putin saying that the way in which the recent similar period financial crisis was dealt with was really not acceptable that it shouldn't be repeated in the future that private. private account holders should never be having their money taken to bail out the wrongs of the government. seoul says of the threat of his communist neighbor undertaking another nuclear tests is not
imminent there's also reports of an increase in. korean facility with three previous detonations took place the latest in february you have sent letters to foreign embassies asking stuff to leave before a possible attack this when saying the north has on leads to a barrage of threads and made clear reaction to u.n. sanctions and military exercises between south korea and the u.s. washington to a missile test of its own on sunday fearing it would unnecessarily provoke the people. it has a however brought forward the deployment of a missile defense system to guam a us territory in the pacific amid the heightened rhetoric political analyst ball we things are very close provocations make north korea's threats look justified. didn't want to make it seem like it's provoking north korea but if it really had that intention it wouldn't have flown the b. two bombers your capable bombers it would have sent an f. twenty two stealth fighters into north korea i think these groups are holding
a bird prerogative they do nothing to improve the situation to escalate hostilities and i think ultimately it creates animosity and it allows the compelling vision should consolidate power because effectively generalizes the rhetoric of the united states is of course a nuclear war on the insulin so i think cool heads really must prevail in this situation and i think and russia china i think it's hard time that they put the incentives on more and more pressure on dialogue and bring the parties concerned to the table as it's really getting to the situation where it's going to be very problematic see if this can change. just ahead for you turkish police crackdown on a mess protest outside of prison called a symbol one hundred thought on trial i have an alleged plot to overthrow the government and that's coming up in our team.
world. series technology innovation called the list of elements from around russia we've got the future of covered. ten years ago by josh was overtaken. ten years of political infighting terrorism and economic to chafe to china to russia a rise. to fame by talent and hard work april ninth on our take.
the about international airport in the very heart of moscow. welcome back us in our team a car bomb has exploded in the syrian capital killing at least fifteen people and wounding fifty three more the attack occurred near the headquarters of the central bank on a busy road in damascus the boss called extensive damage to buildings and was followed by an intense berridge of gunfire it's the latest in a series of complement tax in the capital with the most recent one killing fifty three people in february this comes as pro-government forces continue their major push to force rebel militias out of their strongholds across the country money while i often write a german reporter's specializing on syria says targeting civilians in the capital
has become a common tactic for the rebels. they are not in the military they are not gaming the security forces the iraqi civilians in our case today a special case they were aiming children at the car bomb exploded right in front of a school where a lot of children where the most of the people are also children deadly explosions are becoming increasingly frequent in the syrian capital one of the motives behind the attacks in crowded city areas of techniques is to show to show that there is no more spot any more safe and to show the civilians who are to live in fear the fear and the panic that the rebel forces that the so-called free syrian army is in charge of from where they can do what they want we are in the west always from the media the regime the so-called aiming the population this is what we hear nonstop the reality is the bomb explosion of today right the other way the rebel forces are
pushing on the civilians and they are out of every penny they seem that assault the government control in damascus. this is a general problem because we are now speaking not about. the typical solve what is going on we are talking about pure terrorism this syrian government would have to secure every corner in damascus when i was in damascus last year in summer it was already the situation like this that bombs car bombs were exploding and because terrorists are infiltrating the cities and of course they are not just the taking of the central bank like to date but also very important to see billion spots like electricity stations schools. the stations and so on so you see it's hard for the government to secure every square meter off the city from terrorist attacks police have fired tear gas and water cannon to disrupt
a mass protests outside the prison called me is timbale in turkey several hundred people i held day on trial over an alleged plot to overthrow the government the details now from produce uneasy feeling. there's been thousands of people which have come since midnight last night in buses from across the country and extremely angry this is what you know one of the biggest trials that has ever gone on in turkey and today they've been trying essentially to storm the compound and they they got they managed to get through the barricades and that was immediately met with water cannons they were drenched in water and it's it's not a it's not a warm day today and it was they were also several rounds of take gas were fired upon them and that that succeeded in pushing them back behind the barricades and then they were then now confined to a smaller space and what that essentially calling for is for the government the turkish government to resign that's saying that these trials they're going to hire
a sign that the government has slipped in such fascism and it is an extremely controversial process because we're talking about people that have been cetane for about five years without charge and these are high ranking military officials that have been arrested very prominent journalists many prominent members of parliament and heads of opposition parties and they many of them don't even know what they are actually being accused of i mean they know that being accused of being a member of an organization called again a koran which the government says has been responsible for decades of violence as well as plotting to overthrow the turkish government but many of the many of the opponents of this controls say that there's no even there's not even any evidence evidence that this organization called actually exists and that some people say that this is almost like turkey's version of of the war on terror whereby. hundreds
of people are detained without charge essentially just to get rid of any opponents of the ruling party to a.k.p. party it's extremely controversial process it's very unclear what the outcome of this process is going to be the trial today has been again postponed they say until tomorrow so we can expect probably more protests to be taking place here again some are. margaret thatcher you came prime minister and the only female to eval hold the post has died following a stroke at the age of eighty seven to speak more about the life and the legacy of the woman known as the i and lady when i joined live by lloyd has a british u.k. independence party politician lord has you mad. so what were your impressions of the baroness. well i was her chief whip and i was a minister from. five has. she was.
the best educated. intellectual. intolerant. of anyone i've ever worked for. all of which are outstanding quality. now in the baron as earned to the name of the nickname the i in lady full have strictly views and policies but she was also dippy respected for being a strong leader how does she come pay to the current british leadership. well i would tend to use the current british leadership by i think it's current. with a few days of poor perceptions global leadership i mean she said what she believed and she did put she believed in. what we have now i mean i remember and i wouldn't
mention names but i remember one prime minister. who was a various figures came to see if they had their children and we've heard it's fantastic simple has it occurred to you that he told you exactly what you wanted to hear which is absolutely useless you have to have someone who says i'm going to do what i'm going to do i mean if you look at the argentinians they made a fateful was in no police when she said i'm going to read a book full of violence because they're british territory. a number of statements and she carries through on all of the ninety's one of the reasons for example that she got home from reagan and most important it's one of the reasons i believe it should go. far better than any of us has with the russian people because they actually installed and she was the real soon. condolences attributes
and no doubt will be flowing in to the british people and of course to her family how the british people taking the news. well i think first to remember. i. became a minister. five and i'm not sixty two so. the pope. she is a sort of. vague memory. of. her cheapens. will last for a very long time as the last government did its very best to. bankrupt the country but the principles laid about quality. principles i mean if you think there was no cause made in you night he came to be.
who you would want to buy you were under psychiatric treatment and if you look at the car magazines every car it practically every clause for the british book that tells you that in a way it's the best because of what she achieved in this country now we're seeing that's his hand in some of david cameron's policies how do you think the legacy will last for the end i think decision maker. well as you know i left the. conservative party last year and i think i gave my first interview world of this very distinguished channel and. so that's a problem because the current government is it has two problems one is that it's a coalition and as a result of his constant fighting so. to
particularly if they haven't had one for a very long time of this this country hasn't had one for a period of time and the second one is that there is far too. men in grace who are all saying to people what they want to hear. people hold not stupid but people in china are a lot stupider group in russia stupid they know perfectly well when politicians promise. to deliver it they may do that so. i think there is there is a very strong sense of deja vu out of very strong france disappointed in the principle of democracy as it is being operated within western europe today. lot of xander firm has a british or u.k. independence party politician our condolences and thank you for your time. thank
you. david cameron has met with his spanish counterpart to marianna horrid to promote his ideas of a more flexible you as euro skeptic sentiment grows among voters back in the u.k. he was also planning to visit france and germany but opted to cut his trip short after the death of the baroness thatcher robert oulds the director of the bruges group a think tank says cameras proposals won't be welcomed by the rest of the. former prime minister margaret thatcher was of course the president of the group and she had an enormous effect on britain she changed britain arguably greatly for the better you broke the former consensus in british politics restore prosperity and also criticised the european union in its drive to more centralization which has damaged many us states and of course undermined our democracy throughout the year prime minister david cameron course wants to emulate margaret thatcher's effect
with regarding that the european union they will not back him up on the return of powers from the nation states they don't want a more flexible european union where people can pick and choose what powers belong with nation states and what powers belong at the level they support a blanket e.u. where things are standardized from one one there to the to the next from arland to portugal or costa finland and greece that's how they want things done from eastern europe to to the atlantic there is not a chance of getting significant powers back from the european union or to the nation states that is quite simply not feasible when it's already been rejected by other e.u. leaders. times of her temple surging in the euro zone are making their entire project increasingly unpopular i said today on r t france a right wing politician my re in the lead pen explains why more and more people now think they'd be better off going it alone without brussels. i think the first
and foremost there is a rejection of the u.s. and its policies you have been people are realizing that the european union is an empire a surrogate union that is in fact destroying their region and doesn't protect them from economic social or migratory difficulties and i think that the increase in patch it is meant to managing a country's own affairs to control of the border is whether it's human capital of products like is is there advice to go i think what we're seeing is the brussels bill 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 it 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 persuasion of people who are generally 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 not as discreet it's to make people believe that there will be an increase in democracy but in fact the mortal the economic model the truth is killing democracy my. hands are full interview with marie le pen ad six of forty five pm g.m.t. . police in egypt and egypt rather are on high alert out to religious hatred spite of fresh wave of violence on psychos main crop coptic christian cathedral one person was killed and over eighty hurt in hours of c.s. wanting between christians and muslims follows the funeral of all four cops only had their fallen victim to say tearing clashes last week security forces tried to disperse the crowds with tear gas but faces stiff resistance slogans against egypt's islamist president away chanted by christians who are blaming authorities of neglecting them journalist tom de
a witness of the unrest. i spoke to one witness who said that events began when bottles were thrown from a nearby building down on to the funeral march and march has responded by attacking cars for what is clear is that fighting quickly escalated between the funeral marches and local marchers retreated within the i would say cathedral compound and after that security forces were involved in standing by while first locals fired weapons into the cathedral there were five people killed in forsooth which is a town outside of cairo and sectarian writing four of those were christians and it was their feudal which was being held at the st mark's cathedral sectarian violence in egypt is nothing new it goes bangkok aids so we have a combination of hardline religious right prison and security forces by the standing by we're 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 youth 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 countries broke out when police attacked that demonstration supporting take us and rocks once again in downtown cairo. that's all for me constant has not stopped.
you know i always try to stay clear of falling into the trap of fake outrage on this program people love to come on t.v. and be angry over this and angry over that just to fill air time but trust me saying obama signing into law with that wacky lobster like way he has of writing the bill marked the month santo protection act well it does not put a smile on my face that's for sure not only does this bill effectively bar federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of g.m.o. seeds and crops no matter what the health concerns are according to ib times but the bill was also written by senator roy blunt who's gotten sixty four thousand dollars for his political campaign paid from the g o giant monsanto itself so that's what it costs to allow companies to possibly poison millions if not all americans with risky and unproven g.m.o. technology sixty four thousand dollars that's not even enough to buy a decent house sixty four thousand dollars is chump change well citizens of america now you.
