a hugely controversial figure here in russia hyping a highly decorated military officer the commander of a tank regiment during the second chechen war he was stripped of all of those those owners following his two thousand and three conviction for the abduction and killing of an eighteen year old chechen woman now he remains in prison and till late two thousand and nine when he was released on parole around twelve o'clock today here in central moscow as busy busy streets in the center of the russian capital he was gunned down just behind me this through an art trade there in the courtyard of the apartment block police are saying he was shot four times in the head the investigation of course now in its early stages but they've already said that they have found a car believed to be used by the by the killers they've called they found they a gun with a silencer fitted to it like that's vehicle was partially burned out now they are

and from the titles. this had been done to provoke a reaction from those groups and to incite ethnic tensions in the country. meantime alexy a professor of islamic studies believes that a murder could expose deep rift between the various ethnic groups. doesn't use my will without even knowing who killed him and how exactly it happened it's obvious that there will be both positive and negative reactions to this tragic event i think in the course is they will welcome his death he's very much disliked there but in russia some will see his death is vigilantism at the hands of north pole kasia and i think that this will cause a certain amount of tension this doesn't mean we'll see more scattering in the streets although in some places that can't be excluded but this is a tragic event which highlights the abnormal into ethnic relations in science russian authorities must be prepared to intervene in a sensible way because if we see a significant escalation he'll be part of
a system intent to destroy the russian that multiculturalism and its diversity which would be incredibly destructive force. you all with r.t. and still to come for you in the program here top level and top secret some of the world's most influential figures sit together at a meeting of the secretive build of the group giving people plenty of speculate on just what are they talking about his senior. nato is deliberately targeting the libyan leader khaled gadhafi that's according to media reports quoting the alliance is a senior military official says the u.n. resolution justifies the action because as head of the military could have he is an essential part of the command structure as comes as fresh air strikes the center plumes of smoke over the libyan leader's compound and nearby military barracks for the libyan army has fought back according to shooting down a nato helicopter about one hundred sixty kilometers southwest of tripoli meanwhile the country's rebels will get at least one billion dollars in assistance money
promised i don't know as including the u.s. britain france as well as some of the arab states but as r.t. is marie ivanovna reports of the only thing some libyans have received are injuries inflicted by nato. that someone has been who they know has breadth of their doctors have performed any a miracle and the young girl is back home with her family she took her mother's pills to kill herself. if someone wants to kill me and bill to do it myself. but who wants to kill the teenager. summer's native city tripoli has been under constant bombardment by nato forces for three months day and night poms have been falling on the city with a population of around a million no one can ever say when or where the next one would land. this week in the most intensive where radio there have been sixty eight airstrikes in just ten
hours attacks against civilians must start daffy must go and the libyan people deserve to determine their own future nato has frequently claim success and the military operation is supposed to protect civilians but the libyan government has repeatedly protested that innocent civilians have been among the dad the claims have not been independently verified with one thing is clear since march nineteenth the life would normally be and has changed forever son was mother will never forget the day when her daughter preferred death to this new life my girl told me before that she thought death is a good thing and i entered her room that day she was lying on the floor there was smoke everywhere could hardly see what happened but i realized immediately was something terrible this is not fair they told us they want a no fly zone they never sat they were going to go almost he promised to protect us but instead they scariest talking about who they are have a back your son was father is more precise and it was the world no longer needs
nato the second world war ended long ago and we try to live our lives will need storage wars and always into the other country's problems we're tired of war our patience is running out let us just live our life has just prolonged its operation and leave it in september that means people here face months more terror from the skies we had of nature's supposed to targets gadhafi his military arsenal actually landed here in this district it didn't destroy the colonel's compound but it's almost damaged the lives of one family as you can see the building has quickly been repaired now the question is whether the people will ever recover. tripoli. more updates on the violence in the middle east on our web site that's r.t. dot com where you can also watch our exclusive interview with the nato secretary general of course anders fogh rasmussen and have your say as we're asking how the

for the safety of the cyclone projects this is a great result. of the hottest show on the international agenda where the two sides so i. russia strongly condemns nato's military intervention in libya and again calls for a peaceful resolution of the call flags and the war which has already resulted in thousands of casualties as also seriously cheney challenge to the e.u.'s foreign policy is to talk more on those challenges today in an exclusive interview with r t we're joined by high representative of foreign affairs and security policy in the european union catherine ashton and of course the first question i asked europe was only. one of the big challenges and questions is how to make sure the people of libya way in which they go. on the assuredness of that departure is a fundamental part of moving forward in france that has been a lot of help to me as i'm surrounding these twenty seventh e.u.
summit and these all to music is built largely around president mubarak's quest for radical reforms in russia the organization it only resulted in breakthrough agreements between brussels and moscow over the past months like along the way to russia's accession into the world trade organization for seventeen years that is way longer than any other building country russia has been in membership talks with w t o and now finally we expect that by the end of the year russia will join the club today presently very rich to use european colleagues to sort out all the formalities within the next month and just speed up the process of russia's joining the group. reporting that you are with r.t. live from moscow and invite only thing of the world's political and financial magnates the group is currently underway in switzerland. one being shrouded in secrecy something that's given rise to a strong protest to use that laura might not report on just what might be the main
agenda going on behind closed doors. the exclusive ski resort of sam ritz in june is perfect build territory out of season and crucially practically deserted there are two hives of activity in town though one's the luxury hotel subrata where around one hundred thirty of the world's most influential politicians businessmen and sovereigns are meeting behind closed doors and the other in a much cheaper hotel where concerned activists are determined to break that wall of secrecy down they'd set up what they believe is the world's first alternative media center they've worked for mainstream outlets too but they're not here just not enough. western media not enough from the u.k. it's it's quite appalling news agency is just really saddam's of this year's attendees and on the list is the chancellor of the exchequer george osborne i would
have thought that makes it news other build a burger regulars include david rockefeller the editor in chief of the economist magazine the greek finance minister and the president of the world bank they're all rumored to be here this year unlike another regular former i.m.f. chief dominique strauss kahn on bail in new york for alleged sex attack there has been interest from the swiss national press this year bill de burgh which is widely believed to support big government and economic consolidation runs entirely contrary to the swiss idea of independence local government and neutrality blogger manfred petritsch has run a successful campaign to batter effect playing on the reported ten million euro taxpayer bill for securing the spanish build about except that a private meeting because that's what they call themselves the private. security
has to be a. tax payer and i think a lot of people understand that specially when the government. we don't have money for this. and here we go and it costs a lot of money to secure this private meeting of these people the agenda is secret along with everything else but the little buggers are believed to be deciding on who should replace their friend t.s.k. at the top of the i.m.f. that was concentrating on how to save the euro which was leaked agenda show brainchild we. don't want to go but these are all the things that actually created using is a construct of the. euro is a construct of the building because this building is different from last year's spanish one security is not slow a key first starts and there's no kilometer wide cordon around the hotel where secrecy still dominates with protesters saying even the swiss government doesn't
know who is attending every year though there are more and more activists and increasing media attention there saying if you told us what was going on we wouldn't have to speculate it. all right now let's get to some other news for you in brief this hour in yemen thousands of them out on streets across the country it's so we can ask the president left to saudi arabia ali abdullah saleh was forced to seek treatment for injuries received when his compound was attacked demonstrators are demanding a new transitional government to be formed once the president steps down hundreds of people have been killed in protests against this since the beginning of the year . croatia is set to get the green light to join the e.u. union's justice commissioner has just said if you're reading added that the membership is likely to start in two thousand and thirteen croatia would be the second post yugoslav country to join the twenty seven so you know after slovenia it started membership talks about six years ago. from the protesters have clashed with

that look like they're barely holding together actual hauser's lying in the ruins and these are the far from welcoming amateurs that strike you as soon as you approach the village of can be one of dozens of residential refugee areas located hair thirty four thousand or less have lived here for over twenty years in this terrible conditions and new generation has been born but for them nothing has changed they say they've already lost hope these people came here in ninety ninety two after bloody ask me conflict between south the surgeons and georgians that lasted two years as such as de origin they were born in georgia but flags of fearing for their lives hydrogen b. of i was among them her husband became one of the many casualties of the bloody conflicts georgian by origin he was helping certain people and ask her. was killed
by his own kind along with two small children she received a one off compensation payment from the government with no official recognition as a refugee and the benefits that would come with it. it is very difficult to get refugee status that we talk with only through. the only thing that you know is to give us land so we could build moses and leave a normal conditions. the just ten kilometers away lives a different out in a group that's also experienced the reality is of life us refugees the ethnic conflicts between english and this is not easy and people that happen almost at the same time over thirty two thousand english baby. to leave their lands and spread out in the region of the north caucasus but thanks to special government programs the vast majority are back home four hundred anguish tremulously of terror before the conflict and almost half of them have now returned as soon as family is among
