kempinski go twenty two look you. know so it's. been kilometers away from reactor number one in crucially most city radiation levels are much prior there's a horde deemed to be through a bunch of promise in fukushima city and coming up we have all the details. made of plans to expand its air strikes to levy as northwest while colonel gadhafi uses a high profile chess game to reiterate his reluctance to leave the country plus. we are if we are the winner really does this new media hype over of the scandalous case of an american senator tweeting racy pictures of himself sparked concerns that the west celeb gossip overshadowed real news.
this is r.t. coming to live from moscow eleven am here in marina joshua into the program radioactive material has been detected in seawater around japan's fukushima plant was concentration levels two hundred forty times higher than safe limits scientists warned that the element strong is highly dangerous to humans as it can accumulate in bones and is believed to cause cancer on thomas has been to fukushima city to measure radiation levels. here we're eighty kilometers away and the radiation levels in this area in many many places in many instances are much higher. are really close because if you look at a map of where fukushima city is in relation to the actual nuclear facility that's plant number one where a lot of that radiation is and when eating from the winds are bringing that radiation in to shima city and the rain and the wind is blowing the radiation in
this direction so we were at a spot where the radiation levels were one thousand times what is considered to be a safe dosage so. very very dangerous levels and so scientists so that we're working with today from different universities are working together on projects to try to figure out ways to use a simple methods to actually clean that radiation up and these guys actually you. are working to be can't contaminate the soil right now. and as you can see these two gentlemen aren't wearing any protective clothing for the scientists are so one of the concerns is that you can actually have one spot which it's only thirty times in the accepted normal levels and then you go to another spot which is just a metre away and it can jump to five hundred to a thousand times depending on where rain water and mud have collected one of the concerns of course is that grass is
a good. filter for nuclear radio active material and are drawn to grassy places when they go to those areas they could actually be absorbing more radiation from the grasses well so what's interesting is this area that we're in right now is considered a safe area it is not considered a mandatory evacuation area but authorities are looking into to see whether it should be considered evacuation or at least hotspots within the city should be back you waited because of these very very high micro places. if you will where the radiation is just up the charts thomas reporting there the focus human nuclear crisis has also sent shock waves through the world's motor industry as rumors cause potential buyers to lose face and japanese cars reports suggest that contaminated vehicles are finding their way into the european market i just like their chef he has more. oh has been contemplating a change of heart car for months
a fan of japanese vehicles she wanted to upgrade her off roader to when you were a model but her car dealing friend said it was not the right time but there was also you know i was told privately that all new japanese cars are radioactive because of the fukushima disaster the shipment was supposedly blocked by the authorities at adesa harbor but unofficial dealers bribe them and those cars on to the streets officials at the ports left off our question whether there had been any contaminated cars here after the japanese fallout these off roaders worship then before the fukushima disaster in japan and even they were checked for radiation or claim there's absolutely no chance of contaminated making their way onto the territory is that these guys arrived to us transiting through greek and turkish ports if anything was wrong it would have been spotted there in the first place which was to double check all vehicles for any biological threat. however
ecologists these checks may not be enough to determine radiation drawing is a radioactive particles are very small and. they can be found in fields just radiators inside small that's why it's very difficult to detect them with regular geiger counters the disposal of the customs union security experts say the sale of contaminated steel is not something new for ukraine these shorts were filmed inside the chernobyl exclusion zone several years ago scavengers stealing contaminated radiators from the ghost town of one costs around twenty dollars on the black market tens of thousands have been removed from the radioactive particles may be small but are still gravely dangerous a person subjected to them for a lengthy period can experience various lung diseases and even cancer so use that. car is too hard to resist experts advise turning to professionals to check whether
it is safe. from a just. in ukraine. well i ask you has been reporting from the side consider the world's worst nuclear disaster but many fear that a meltdown could take its place check out the ones prosperous. near the power plants to see how it looks now made a special report from the market disasters twenty fifth anniversary it's available on our website r.t. dot com in the documentary section. thousands have been out on the streets of athens in protest against the second round of austerity measures debated in the greek parliament people don't want new taxes or wage cuts but without them the country will not receive international bailout money artists are for us is an athens. syntagma square and you can see just how many people at the protests by the main problem until they began very few measures

because they're really fighting a right to make their country work. with them learn result. and the system the bugs are going to use but the people of the doesn't come in doing things with the. blood situation the look on the game and that's why we came here to tell them that they are incapable of putting so you've been lost and the long don't. go away may cover elections now into. a new government that we shall pass and people whom improve on your the bank get you get. what many people are saying is that we're paying them that price is running into the price. they pay for the child the i ninety five and then you can they pay at least. part is there a first continues to track the developments in greece for you check out our own

headlines for months and i'm deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior i engaged in the apologies seem to fuel the gossip industry even more when politicians stage and i do use this word stage these apologies kind of because they are very likely responding to their public relations. visors their lawyers etc etc i mean in the networks american media companies love it because again it generates even more scandal american television lives off don't take charlie sheen cielo hand with our analyst miles courts a nigger and now we're at the least this endless and all these scandals have to do with private matters but they feel the news environment is such an extent that many hands where the same as were placed back in america i'm going to check our reporting from washington our team. there watching us here live from moscow still

one of the things i've been saying to the israelis for some time is it's in their interest to see economic growth and development to go also lots of small businesses you know that could really do well lots of people who want jobs eighty percent of people in gaza receive today so many young people who don't have a future and part of the answer to that part of making sure that we have security is giving them that future and that means allowing in and out the products the goods were girls that could actually sell and support its own economy. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world clashes have erupted in turkey recent parliamentary elections thousands of supporters of the procurators party which one just six percent of the vote clashed with police officers five stone throwing the task force fifty percent of the vote went to ruling prime minister

medical expenses so long after the original accident it's important to him to keep his case in the public eye he has just finished and marathon of marathon proportions riding his electric buggy eleven thousand kilometers from his home to moscow and it's been a journey of discovery the ocean you know and i was most surprised by the decency and generosity of our people i never expected such help that just imagine every set of stairs demands for people here to get me up when you're there that despite all the obstacles he came to the hotel for so many people along the way i asked to go to the kremlin and tell them how we live but alexander is not the complete inclined to strongly believes that no matter what the odds everyone's destiny is in their own hands the beagle he's met have certainly heard his call but it's the people in power in washington who really need to listen and act very pushed over r.t.
