take him from or from or from i.c.u. killing him in front of i.c.u. her and did his body on the world of general hospital the doctor says people from the national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels' official political body set up after the revolution in libya started in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya the very is no. then you will be in you so you must be. where you are again it's. about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to bury the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in the air strike code until even government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened they had killed fifteen people
including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us now we have to pay a very heavy price of. casualties civilian casualties and also military casualties i think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately who she is very unlikely to happen any time soon . ground in the symmetry still fresh well made too has already claimed that the operation to protect civilians must go on with clashes continue and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to stay in and people are dying on both sides of the frontline many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here there won't be enough people left to experience it. r.t.
reporting from western libya. criminals and barbarians that's what colonel gadhafi called nato states following a recent strike that killed civilians the alliance has said that it regrets the deaths but investigative journalist michel calm who only returned from the war country just a few days ago he told us that innocent lives mean nothing to the coalition that's only in libya for financial gain. they have killed more civilians that the losses from the initials problems there feels more civilians than live to bombings so the real id is not protect civilians the rio de these to achieve the economical strategy called interest off there of the west us in europe i mean the oil i mean the financial reserves of libya i remind the us c. is a bankrupt country and also all preventing that gaddafi would be a sort of
a turn a used to do i.m.f. some buying for african development the old idea is to make the public international opinion accept the idea that nato is a cup of the world or that that nato has the right to make wars where they want to revisit the people in hospitals and we saw victims and indeed the simile and population is attacked that must be very clear it has nothing to do with imminent terror and war. well the nato campaign in libya is losing the support of its allies after the coalition admitted killing civilians in its bombardment it's only has called for an immediate halt to the strikes while the general public across many states are beginning to question the conflict as they learn more of the troops are going to go to school explains. civilian deaths in libya are at last making news on western news networks they say has acknowledged that a number of civilians may have been killed in an air strike last night says it regrets the loss of innocent lives and admits the weapons now function may have
caused civilian deaths in tripoli they do acknowledge that one of its areas gregg's will of course last night in tripoli and may be to blame for civilian casualties the operation has been going on for three months and according to libyan officials hundreds of civilians held ready been killed by nato bombs so why has it taken so long for the major t.v. networks and newspapers to report on the carnage because the big problem with media mass media nowadays is not that they're left wing right wing it's just that they go along with whomever is in power and the whole idea of critical reporting is gone and it's not just the media noticing that something is going wrong in libya it's only a nato member itself has already lost all faith in the operation in fact rome has gone as far as to call for the sanction of all military action and to law aid in to libya france and britain have however dismissed the calls for us to sation in need
to his relentless pounding of libya need to do is acting under a u.n. resolution to protect civilians but many believe the alliances main aim has always been to oust colonel gadhafi some european politicians from countries backing the campaign say that's not the job for nato but fully being people to decide the british public don't really understand why we've been taken into these wars and yes indeed. while we bomb them now colonel gadhafi is i murderous vicious dictator in the world and libya will be better off without him but it is our business to go in there of office if the libyans want to have a revolution and get rid of him then good luck to them all others believe the longer the attacks really be a continue the more difficulties for nato and its political backers the only exit option of nato was to say we will leave when you're going to get if you would leave it if going to the street is skill that if they're going to be.
ok from nato they will leave the option to to exit but if not the point is they will have to exist a result achieving nothing would truly be for nato and specially for london and for paris it would be politically disastrous nature's admission of killing civilians in recent days may have made the headlines back home but the expressions of regret have not been felt on the ground in libya unlike the western bombs and missiles which continue to fall killing those the alliance says it's there to protect in brussels. now if you want to go on the situation in libya just go to our web site that's. in our most recent poll today we're asking why do you think the libyan campaign is failing to succeed so far the most popular view is that libyans support. the trunk also online for your tolerance of
a large passenger jet event a major accident with another plane at new york's j.f.k. airport check out the gripping radio recordings from the crew on our you tube channel. four news today violence is once again flared up. in these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. trying to corporations rule the day. now at ten minutes past the hour here in moscow barack obama is rounding up support for his decision to withdraw a large part of the u.s. garrison from afghanistan france says it's also prepared to pull all of its forces out but the news comes amid warnings from military commanders that progress against the taliban is fragile and reversible there's also concern that less soldiers will
not mean less collateral damage has already begun each counterpoints let's start with numbers there are around one hundred thousand american troops deployed in afghanistan right now thirty thousand of them were added by president obama two years ago now he says by the end of next year the u.s. is going to pull out those thirty thousand troops the drawdown will start this year with some penn thousand troops expected to be withdrawn by december i mean analysts say it's not a groundbreaking move from a strategic point of view after all he is pulling out what he added at the beginning of his presidency but ahead of presidential elections coming up next year it might be a face saving lives he promised the withdrawals to start this year and he had to deliver the bigger question is what results has his leadership brought so far take a listen we're starting this drawdown from a position of strength. al qaida is under more pressure than at any time since nine eleven together with the pakistanis we have taken out more than half of all kinds
of leadership and thanks to our intelligence professionals and special forces we killed osama bin laden the only leader that al qaeda had ever known here in the us the pressure president obama faces with regards to afghanistan mostly has to do with the enormous war spending and the number of casualties among american troops president obama was elected as a war and ended up waging more wars and spending more of taxpayers billions on inconclusive battles overseas that's what a lot of americans are frustrated about what doesn't get enough spotlight here is actually the results on the ground if you listen to american military officials they are cautiously talking about progress fragile progress as they put it but various reports on the ground say insurgency is growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not all that they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of
the recent strikes that killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai had to make a harsh face saving statement warning nato that if they continue killing civilians the whole of the afghan population will treat them as occupiers we have to understand that the image of karzai is of a poppet leader doesn't get him and doesn't get again him any popularity at home so he has to take a stand here is what he said a few days ago people can no longer tolerate that tension in their homes in that one do. you need action industry what some find worrying is that these upcoming troop withdrawals the u.s. has actually stepped up airstrikes including growing strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first century. intelligent war strategy you know when you have no troops on the ground no deaths of your soldiers to justify at home
so it becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability issues so many afghans are worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes it's a common thing in the us media for example when they talk about war losses they just give nato losses very rarely do they mention the number of afghan civilians killed and that number is so many times higher experts say apart from civilians killed another thing that contributes to growing insurgency in afghanistan is the failure to effectively deal with the drug issue since the invasion in two thousand and one drug production there has increased enormously and it's known that some of that vast drug trade income goes to terrorists so many see america's war on terror as a double edged sword when it's fighting and provoking terror at the same time. he is going to chicken reporting right there what are coming up later this hour we talked to a human rights champion of joy she claims the u.s. a little patient of a country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into the fire. removed
by and by brought in power difficult the taliban as dubai this situation getting worse and millions are part of gone by the presence of concern for thousands troops in afghanistan they suffer from injustice insecurity corruption joblessness poor and now afghanistan is the second most country and of course more than sixty two million dollars carries its own she received from the so-called international community under the name of the construction of afghanistan and schools are phones radios it's a truck but most of these men is going to part because these warlords who are in power or even family are comic guys they himself corruption a star from the palace and to this small. part right now we do live below the poverty line is like two dollars a day while it's this against women day by day increasing more and more and can stuff thousands of innocent people has been most often one woman and children democracy never come by our completion democracy never come by military invasion
democracy never comes by cluster bomb by white phosphorus by my cigar by bombing our wedding parties. with our two live from moscow about far right dutch politicians how to build has been acquitted over charges of inciting hate and discrimination he faced a five separate counts following a controversial speech he gave attacking islam and comparing it to narcism but the court ruled his comments fell within the boundaries of legitimate political debate people not all from the u.k. independence party believes the whole case has been a fox. well first let me just say i think it was a disgrace that he was put on trial to begin with i think it's a victory for free speech i think it's a victory for common sense i think the fact that the builders is on the twenty four hour. most like arrest shelby saying he's in fear of his life he can't go out without an armed guard i think that says something about radical islam across
europe and radical islam which threatens people needs to be dealt with a need to be dealt with forcibly multiculturalism has failed for many years now it was something which was born out of the one nine hundred seventy s. and the idea that you can have different communities living side by side who never integrate who don't share the same culture don't share the same language is never going to work what it will do is it will increase the power base of the far right across europe what we need is integration yes multi racialism but let's say no to multiculturalism when in rome we play by roman rules this is the way we do you know in britain this is the situation that we have and this is british culture and this is british way of life we shouldn't be changing ourselves for those there's the people who come to britain to fit in with those it should in effect be the other way around what we need is integration what we need is a shared culture a shared value and what we need to get rid of is multicultural multiculturalism which divides people and bring people together this is artsy now the aging of one

reserves are in u.s. dollars something like twenty five percent are held in europe if the eurozone goes into a debt spiral because there's a huge problem it causes a fundamental crisis of confidence in the money that people hold in their pockets at the same time it quite possibly gives russia an incredible opportunity because in fact it may well be that other currencies such as even the ruble may alternately be regarded as being safer here vns for investors and developed and the russian government is going to have considerable struggle to manage to keep the economy going but hopefully they'll be able to pull through. i know it's all the business for this hour we'll be back with more just under an hour's time stay with us for headlines next.
