china best ski has not been seen in public for six months now. you're watching our t.v. nonny of the morning here in moscow welcome to the program how the egyptian opposition has come together as a united force after six days of bloody anti-government riots the nationwide demonstrations to remove president hosni mubarak from power have resulted in more than one hundred killed and thousands injured our correspondent paula sleazier is in egypt for us. it was late on sunday evening when baradei addressed the hundreds of thousands of protesters who've for seven days now have been demonstrating in downtown tokyo where he said that he had been chosen by opposition groups by the political organizations that have organized these demonstrations he said that he was prepared to head an interim government of called on to do so and once again if
1:02 am
you waited the rallying call of thousands of egyptians for hosni mubarak to stick down now the mayor this was not a major surprise i mean mohamed el baradei has been a name that's been bandied about here in the last few days as a possibility in terms of unifying this very fragmented opposition party opposition force it is worth noting that it took protesters six days to appoint him and this is largely because hosni mubarak since he came to power thirty years ago has been intent on suppressing opposing views and as a result these demonstrations have been slightly chaotic now about today is a name that is well known to the international troops but here in egypt he is a relatively small player he is much better known on the international scene where he is the family head of the international atomic energy agency and he's also a noble peace prize laureate but certainly the opposition voices here getting a impetus with this new appointment last night as we saw in previous nights the
1:03 am
protesters out in downtown cairo defied of curfew thousands of them gathering in taking every square morning putting is that have already happened no doubt that as the day progresses there will be an increase in calls for mubarak to step down and the possibility of growing violence it is worth noting that the main problem that people here are facing at the moment is that of nor dismiss the army is in full control and they have been allowing demonstrators to come and leave the protests the police on the way to be seen and what this means is that ordinary citizens are having to protect their properties against vigilante groups some of them. people who broke out of prisons on sunday some of them are people who simply raided police stations and stole weapons and ammunition from there and they've been parading the streets in some and some neighborhoods they are in control of the neighborhoods and that is really the major concern that people here particularly in cairo and other cities are facing the sense you get is one of unpredictability the same sygate is
1:04 am
instability and really a situation that can flare up at any moment it does seem at the moment as if violence is on the horizon just how long these demonstrations will continue and just how that violence will end remains to be seen talking to protesters though what many of them say is that if mubarak does not step down overseas particularly who are their concerns and i filed this report and with respect. first he sent in his army then he reshuffled the government next came the air force. people's voices here are louder but they're being drowned out by f. sixteen is a mic twenty one is flying overhead mubarak is not going down without a fine. sank you are mr obama this is your friend barack this is your friend and the american involvement reminiscent of earlier revolutions
1:05 am
in eastern europe. no question about it what happened in georgia with the orange revolution or rather the rose revolution and join ukraine with the orange revolution two thousand and three two thousand and four was part of a long term strategy orchestrated by the pentagon the state department and various u.s. financed enjoy your freedom house and national endowment for democracy and like those early revolutions people mobilized around a common goal abdel nur came all the way from us wanted to get rid of a dictator it's right to beat us with the police he feel he tried to beat us was army he failed the russians must admit a bus is an engineer qualified and jobless but he says he can't find work because of corruption we can't find jobs he paid two one is inside the company sixty so isn't so you can walk is a company and as a result europe because most people want to go to italy want to go to greece want
1:06 am
to go to england so people in egypt want to leave this country because they are very frustrated and they are looking for better life for a better future and for us that means mass immigration and the problems that come with it may cost shade lives abroad but got caught up in the violence on a trip back home i don't think at this second there is enough momentum at the moment that people just continue to just go out and protest until something is done and i think people are just fed up the casualties keep climbing young faces victims of an aging regime. mohamed el c.b.i. was with his cousin when he was shot did he took a bullet. in his head. the last words he said before he die that here was. both. may go for ever but whether they're protecting will be with or without president mubarak is still unclear well as the seventh day of demonstrations gets underway

here in egypt no doubt the international community will remain focused on what happens here as well egyptians themselves i'll be bringing you more updates from today a recent spike in fatal shootings in the u.s. has reignited the debate over the right to bear arms while some politicians are calling to restrict what americans consider a part of their freedom but in a country where the number of private guns almost equals the population cowboy habits die hard artie's lauren lyster reports. unlike many other countries in the united states guns can be found everywhere from retail stores this particular want to six hundred dollars my personal a springfield x d forty five to rally it's a river ten twenty two it's easy to air use the hands of politicians running for office commodore john mcmillan because he gives a rip about alabama and auburn not care to new thought of the criminal if they do

charge so many readily cite the country's second amendment that allows for this right to bear arms the vast majority of level headed americans was a constitutional right and as such they probably don't have a problem with it. but with a population of three hundred seven million people and roughly three hundred million firearms owned by civilians in the united states with a constitutional right is now feared by some sixty to become an obsession in the twenty first century. thing that people do in the urban areas the machine guns and forty seven and so on is preposterous an obsession that can't be ignored considering recent acts of gun violence and the ease of access to firearms so in the united states for the average citizen like myself to purchase a gun i need to go through a background check with the federal government looking for anything from criminal history to mental illness and if i pass that you get anything from
