democracy or yet another dictatorship the alleged brutal methods of egypt's military rulers forced people to question it's the revolution actually brought a change for the better. leaders of russia china iran and afghanistan joined their essential ways in calabar turkey summit focusing on the challenges facing the region. fighting terrorism extremism and drugs told me at the gathering of the heads of state here in kazakhstan join me for the details of a few moments. of the live pictures from greece there and other countries paralyzed by
a new wave of anti sturdy protest as the government battles to push cost cutting reforms through parliament to secure another international bailout. plus in business this our foreign investments are heating up results wagon said to invest over one hundred new euro into russia's bosun income markets and join me for that story more this summer on twenty minutes time. and this one pm of the russian capital you're watching r t a marina joshua welcome to the program the jailing at least seven thousand people by egypt's military rulers will be reviewed by the nation's interim leaders and allegations of torture and abuse the behavior of the army since taking over from the ousted hosni mubarak is causing anger amongst those who took part in the revolution and many are skeptical whether the generals are able or even willing to bring about the
democratic. changes so many die for his worries that us now reports. to his agent never sleeps the eighteen day uprising that ousted president mubarak has woken up the hell nation peace has become a common scene here and this to. amnesty international estimates at least eight hundred forty people were killed and more than six thousand wounded during the protest that forced a tyrant to step down but even in a barrack free country agrees room for fear and frustration. right his brother was among fifteen young men killed in the violent religious strife at his cairo just weeks after the revolution egyptian christians and muslims clashed following reports as a young christian woman was kidnapped and held in a coptic george after she married a muslim and converted to islam even though he was a christian coptic it wasn't
a muslim that's killed read his brother as an honest neither should my brother dead the bullet went through his forehead and it came out on the other side and i saw it that no one here has a weapon like this on a soldier's day it's hard to grasp what happened. granted lames the army taken the life of his younger brother and the revolution so given the army so much power . and as. we expected the army to intervene to protect people just took my lands and instead they started to kill people themselves i didn't explain that at all but if the people of egypt didn't expect many things they didn't expect the economy to collapse they didn't imagine the path to free and democratic society would be such a bloody and painful one they just wanted to free from dictatorship and didn't expect it all to find themselves and to get another one in military one the power
in egypt now is and mubarak is out rest firmly in the hands of the military chief of staff. they were sitting literally in the pentagon war room when the twitter revolution started and they are running the show all there has been oldest question about military power but this is a washington installed as i call it in my book full spectrum dominance totalitarian democracy the people who stood on deaf ears where would you believe the regime that oppressed them for more than three decades was going on with our us how pharaoh as they call the dictator would soon finally face justice for what he's done but months on the revolutionary euphoria has got as well and people are asking themselves was that really worth the hundreds of victims and did they really get a better country in this old age it is at the crossroads if you go towards chaos or democracy the worst scenario would be the army continues to rule and the country sinks into blood from a civil war it's absolute people to decide. months since the freed shook the
arab world it's clear the revolution we now the part of history of the fight is far from over there is an option r t a. human rights watch dogs reportedly. side of cause of the change in egypt since presidents have not barak was forced to leave but it's as david says there's growing evidence of crimes committed by the military some have been jailed simply for criticizing the government others have been brought up on spirits charges of quote unquote insulting the military but increasingly and certainly given the incredibly high number of tensions to tensions of civilians not tensions of people who have you know tried to undermine the regime but people simply criticizing the military this is a very dangerous trend egyptian dissidents and bloggers who are imprisoned in military prisons and they describe incredible torture they describe electrocution they
described waterboarding to describe regular beatings and this was the egyptian military that stood behind mubarak until the last minute so while there have been games and we hope that egypt has a proper future ahead of it there are still many many challenges that it's almost overcome if you chip is going to move towards democracy and liberalism and openness in the west in fact has a very important role to play. human rights activist david keyes commenting on reports thousands been arrested in a military ruler since taking over from ousted hosni mubarak. a group of influential central asian states including regional heavyweights russia and china are meeting in castle stan to discuss the fight against terrorism in an area with more than its share of issues with pakistan afghanistan a neighborhood the shanghai cooperation organization faces and number of challenges our peace talks are serious following the annual gathering and asked now for us there will be a test of so security is dominating the meeting as we know but how are the leaders planning to tackle the threats in the region. well that's right security is at the
top of the agenda will this c.e.o. the shanghai cooperation organization was in fact formed to tackle extremism as separatism the countries of today giving their speeches have expressed their concern in the still the growing threat within their countries their own countries and the region as well also the threat of instant disability and security internationally they want to come up with a common agenda a common approach to the problems threatening global stability especially what's happening in north africa and the middle east in fact are just a few minutes ago a statement was released by foreign minister sergey lavrov asking the u.s. security council not to simplify the situation in syria with regard to the proposed u.n. resolution that they have n.p.'s c.e.o. is a strongly asking that the military operations not be involved in this situation this security issue has gone beyond just the land security with the traditional old threats that we have seen in the past in fact some of the leaders are brought up
the concept of the borders and the security so they want to work stand their efforts into the cyber world in cyberspace also of course the participation of countries such as iran of the i decided pakistan make for a very interesting discussion and our iran for example had given the speech will basically consisting of more questions right. statements it's the usual anti western answer colonialism sentiment that would never do the job does express whether afghanistan being here as a potential observer state has expressed his willingness to cooperate not just with countries in the region making up the c.e.o. but also its international partners including the usa so they want to expand efforts especially in afghanistan a very big issue on the a flight of nato forces being in the country they actually want to discuss a post nato afghanistan some in the in the past have expressed doubts on whether the country is able to deal with this threat on their own however again this us

a series. of data stand and thereafter also holding separate meetings with russian president dmitry medvedev on the sidelines of the summit. so what can we expect from these talks. well as those meetings are going to happen still in a couple of hours but we can expect at least from a meeting between president dmitry medvedev and eros mahmoud ahmadinejad will touch of expectantly touch on the topic of the nuclear program as well as security in the region possibly common approaches between the two countries a bilateral approach to the situation in north africa and the middle east now with the president hamid karzai of course as we have seen in the past the talks will definitely be dominated by finding a solution to drugs again the countries here had said that they want
a nonmilitary military solution to the problems that afghanistan is facing so we expect to hear this as well as trade deals between russia have got to start russia being very willing to invest in afghanistan and help its economy in order to a lift a country out of the problems that it is facing. all right tess thanks for much indeed for bringing us this update from nasa now worth a c.e.o. summit is taking place and of course we'll be crossing back to you thank you. well there's plenty of have for you in the program here in our t.v. including why the u.s. is building a secret cia drone base in the persian gulf to fight militants in yemen. plus we went to the waters of the arctic and winds down to look at the titanic but why were the two russian mini subs doing at the bottom of one of europe's largest lights. the greek prime minister is facing tough opposition as he tries to push through

a completely unreasonable now they said the angus really been building for a year they've come up against incredibly tough economic conditions there's a huge number of unemployed relates to get said sixteen percent pulls out of a job so really the thought of new measures being put in place to that is unreasonable and there's been lots of people are asking when the choice that the i.m.f. years his central bank and the e that provided the initial to the chinos one hundred ten billion euro is going to look hans the bailout loans a plan b. because the thought of ways to manage another better package and pay back the loan for a lot of people is that they are realistic in the process of the been happening here outside the parliament building has been compared to the arab spring uprisings what's interesting about the process we've seen happening in these very same countries like spain like greece is that these are countries with an established democracy many people consider greece the best place at the moment for say what
people here are saying is a wise inning in the gap between what the government implements say and what the electorate the cooling full in the thirty thirty five years of growth per parliamentary the. in greece there has never been a government freeze in such a crisis. it's an open political crisis here the government is trying to govern. refuse to be governed in this way and what they're saying is that when you have millions of people taking to the streets and protesting against these measures and the government still pushing ahead with the well at that point you really have to not to see anymore and this is very clear that's until that's the pocket and that's the case in bringing you all the latest from the states about this later and say. so first reporting there from greece now yemen's government says dozens of people have been killed in u.s.

military the cia will have greater latitude to carry out strikes no matter what the political climate they are greater latitude in other words they don't have to. ask anybody permission to bomb the country the yemeni leader who is now out of the country after months of violent popular revolt against him and his government for many years had been supported by the u.s. in exchange for letting americans bluster all quieting gehman as we could make able to show off when taking credit for the u.s. drone strike we have to remember that scores of civilians were killed in those strikes so the support of the yemeni authorities was much needed to the west to carry on with the operation on the other hand the government does alley and to have the last dollar who's been in power for some thirty years was so unpopular in recent years among the people of yemen that many analysts say it was only due to the u.s. support that salah had stayed in power for so long because your salary needed the
u.s. and the u.s. needed policy but now with the political turmoil there the u.s. goals they will continue to bomb yemen whether or not the happy commission to do so from actually the people of this country pakistan is one of gamble a popular revolt against the cia drone strike thousands of civilians were killed by the u.s. . drone attacks and no one was called responsible for that even though the pakistani parliament is demanded to stop the sprite's the country's leadership continues to allow the nurses to carry out the operations although the pakistani leadership criticizes the killing of civilians but they do little to stop it many analysts say their support for the bombings will continue as long as they continue to receive billions of dollars from washington people there are furious in one year the u.s. u.s. drone drones killed seven hundred civilians in pakistan but they netted only five actual militant leaders numbers that some experts are giving or gruesome the form
achieve counterinsurgency strategy it's what the u.s. state department has estimated that drone attacks kill fifty non-target it persons for each intended target nonetheless we now see the rapid expansion of the cia. going to pour in here and also catch up with the stories we're covering ally other t. dot com they're spoiled for you to explore for example money never sleeps u.s. auditors look into the disappearance of more than six billion dollars man for iraq with a cash no on account for. and sauna diplomacy finished diplomats are awarded a steamy prize for promoting song culture abroad and helping forge international relations i know more. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world and pakistan's top spy agency has arrested five people accused of informing the cia ahead of the raid in which osama bin laden was killed the owner of a safe house run of by the cia to watch bin laden's compound is believed to be one
