type of ceremonies and the food is being cooked outside in special councils that's why it requires gas canisters and one of these gas canister used exploded and seriously injured a significant number of people and for this very was saying over four hundred guests were invited but at the time of the blast only one hundred were present in the yard near the residential area so the scale of this accident could have been bigger. turning now to some other stories making headlines across the globe three blasts have been heard at a police station under attack by militants in northwest pakistan at least ten officers were reportedly killed some two dozen others believed to be trapped inside the compound just the latest assault in recent weeks involving teams of armed insurgents targeting security forces the pakistani taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack saying it was in revenge for the killing of osama bin laden. in sudan at least eleven people have died after a militia group allegedly allied to the northern government attacked

free. free. free. free. free. free. tom. thanks for staying with us here on our t.v. fifteen minutes past four am here in moscow the promised land of the jews israel facing an exodus of its own tens of thousands over the past few years with many others thinking of packing their bags as our reports fears over security issues forced many israelis to seek safe haven abroad. rachel shites has no reason to like germany she was born there before the second world war and within six years had been expelled and most of her family killed but the irony is she now wants
a german passport. holder get money i want the german citizenship to help my children and grandchildren which might be shocking if it wasn't so common in israel today in the last decade some fifty thousand israelis have applied for us citizenship a quarter of a million already have a second passport it's unlikely that any other country in the world has such a large percentage of new immigrants preparing to leave. the story because he is or was a stubborn to become a show. you know europe becomes the shell of the true sleeping is. that of my place the american heart of tel aviv here you'll hear more english than hebrew and you'll be forgiven for thinking that you were in the us and not to the promised land most israelis here have a second passport many of them grew up abroad or have a parent who came from another country i have canadian israeli and i would never give up my canadian and probably would give up my israeli the american i wouldn't
give up because i have family there and i want to go to go there any time british passport or european passport is a doorway to opportunities eight years ago the bar was blown up by a suicide bomber three people were killed and fifty injured the bar didn't close down but some say the rush for new passports heated up in vain because of the suicide bombings when there was a feeling of insecurity so yes there was an increase both in immigration and in the demand for passports and that demand has only grown in the last five years israel has been in two wars and many fear another is not far off and the government's policy of settlement expansion has only isolated the country internationally so it's no surprise his leading israeli journalist gideon levy that people are tired of living in a war zone the israeli leadership. basing its leadership on creating all the. frying the income against anything and the payoff is a population that feels unsafe with one eye on europe. damis son has processed
nearly five thousand applications for a second passport in the last ten years that works out at about forty passports a month and he's only one lawyer working in the field of fate of the draw in world war two. the one who are very moved were the ones who got the wide berth for their leisure. if you're going to go. that can help you move out of danger zone then you do it every year more jews leave israel for europe and the skates and then the other way around one in five or so if you choose has already returned home and with no israeli palestinian peace talks on the horizon and growing israeli and security about the arab demonstrations on the doorstep this so-called insurance passport is unlikely to lose popularity any time soon points leader r t tel of of. good news for the economy is few and far between with layoffs
austerity and growing u.s. national debt some are staying optimistic saying things could be worse as our resident on the streets of new york found out. all the latest data indicates the global economy is going limp are you personally affected this week let's talk about that have you felt the effects of the bad economy need a better job of this economy is not get me a better job here desire to try to go to college and i can't because car my car gas is all expensive at school so expensive so small in the vicious cycle is really bad but i'm happy because brazil is growing like for me is good so is that kind of the way it goes when when some countries are hurting other countries can prosper more yeah greece is looking bad spain is looking bad i feel like we're on the right. so
they're just exaggerating not in greece and spain no no i feel like the reports in the us are i'm actually in the military so i do not feel that at all that's the only perk i. parked my job i've been getting steady paychecks for five years yet i can't see that the american military is going to go out of it if they do any time soon and i guess we have bigger problems to worry about the economy and you had to cut back or we had to cut back even more would show we could take cruises to come to new york this. crucial first time in new york city today so that doesn't sound like you're hurting that it sounds like you're doing ok we haven't cut back on a lot of other things do you think that we've seen the bottom of this crisis or are we headed for bread lines and even worse things that we've seen the bottom what is the bottom look like. well it was pretty bad during the great depression that is a bottom that we can compare it to i don't know if we'll get that bad but i don't think we're there yet so do you think we can fix it i'm a global level or do you think it's time countries started looking at themselves
first i think we have to fix it on the global level but i think we reach country have to lower their their expectations of. the living standard i think we all have to go down whether or not you've been personally impacted the bottom line at the global economy apparently continues. he was called the father of the bolshevik revolution and although highly debated his role in russia's history can't be underestimated little later we retrace lenin's path in moscow. to change the course of the straits and starting off the red square next to the magnificent moscow kremlin. as we take a look at his epic journey and the various landmarks associated with his life

make their hair on a good writer. as. the crew of this ship was able to pull through the tempest and even work with nearby stations to repair their damaged vessel but they were lucky operating in such a remote environment means that replacement parts aren't always available and the workers here have to make do with what they can it is pretty hard to get here good equipment to get here sophisticated equipment so. one challenge is to try to make your big science was a very small amount of equipment because of the hearts and three weather conditions and part that there is considered one of the most dangerous environments on the planet and because of this operating down here logistically it can be more than a convenience it can be done right deadly during the same storm the crew from that would go on t.v.'s base lost one of their team when a jeep wall down an embankment into a frigid antarctic lake. that was most difficult experience in my career in such moments i start to sing that good just once is to try is out here. but in
antarctica time is a valuable commodity and work crews have limited time to prepare the base for winter after the accident happened we didn't even have time to make a stop which the moment required a stop to think to express compassion we have to go on with our work which we finished at about four am the next day the incident sparked an outpouring of international support from the surrounding bases but in a twist all too appropriate for the harsh realities of working in antarctica the chilean air force plane that was to airlift. the body back to south america suffered an explosion in the left engine as it was taking off the pilots on board of hurting another fatal tragedy by a matter of seconds still the southern continent doesn't provide the opportunity to dwell on the difficulties when a good seat on the key things all problems as soon as possible or the opportunity will be lost when there is no immediate response because shien's and avoid actions
that me get one of those hurt for example when the airplane engine failed we have avoided doing anything that could have gotten any of us hurt in any way so we don't have to airlift anybody else and here we have avoided any wrists until another airplane arrives when we need a system derived from unfortunate necessity which keeps those living and working in the face of danger and safe is possible in antarctica sean thomas hardy. there's plenty more videos and stories from shah's adventures across the antarctic on his blog and on our website r t dot com. later today a new battle of tora we follow the story of one man's personal fight to preserve a world war two battle ground to end memory allies the for the fallen that's coming your way in our special report here's a look. seventy six hours of intense fighting. six thousand dead at a beach front battlefields several kilometers long. and now there is only one
