international news and comment this is in moscow just turned eleven pm here in the russian capital world markets cloran back their losses but remaining unstable after the sharpest falls since two thousand and eight that decline raised fears of another wave of the global recession amid the slowing u.s. economy and debt crisis daniel bushell is following the markets from brussels. the euro virus is spreading to new countries france and belgium all next day yields have hit record highs against germany's the u.k.'s financial services authority has also british banks to reveal how much debt they hold in belgium on fears that that country could be next italy and spain have entered crisis talks with the e.u. as they yield critical new highs so now you have investors pulling out of france italy and spain. eurozone economies and that is why
the investors in the markets are panicking the moment the leaders of france spain and germany are holding an emergency teleconference to try and stop the open relative to coming out the top you have italian prime minister silvio berlusconi and his finance minister openly disagreeing on this solution solutions to the crisis and the e.u. president jose manuel barroso slammed on discipline communication by e.u. leaders for making the crisis worse and germany is furious at such an open a tank this time when it's already critical as in europe we've seen america really suffering and raising the debt ceiling doesn't tackle the key problem which is such making the problem worse given the more debt and their economy is weak because they know the your the u.s. have really started to tackle that key issue yesterday was the wall street worst
day in years there was steep slumps in the share price and there are now fears that america will go back into recession which would strongly hit not just america but the whole world economy and the u.s. and europe politicians keep trying to reassure the public that everything is ok but it's investors who are really making decisions they're the ones that are pulling their money out of these markets and they're saying that they don't they don't like the situation at the moment at all. and it will there and economic analyst michael ross says the market panic we witnessed was triggered by politicians who are not dealing properly with debt i'll tell you one thing this is not a normal crisis and this was not the normal crash that we had this week. it was the beginning of the end what is the illness that has three got all these problems the illness is called dead all western nations over debt they lose their credibility and what happens when they lose their credibility then banks are going bankrupt and
i'll tell you another thing only in a short time all banks all of the most important banks worldwide in the western world will be taken over by a government by the government and another thing it's not the discussion about the euro and the debt in europe is this is of course a problematic issue it was the discussion about the debt ceiling in united states that you get of this mess everybody knows also my grandmother but the problem the united states is not solved when they. put up the debt ceiling we are in very very big problems and i don't cannot see any solution or dog take experts tell us. their problem all the only cure they don't know is to produce more debt but that is already. the issue of this crisis is already the cause of this crisis so how can you solve this crisis with more debts so i don't see any solution. this is the life here in moscow still ahead this. is.
a group of muslims tried to enforce tough shari'a law in london opening a new front of multicultural tension in your. travels to the amir region on china's doorstep russian and chinese culture intertwined that's just a few minutes away. the first president syria's leader bashar al assad to kick start reforms and end the violence in his country before it's too late dmitri medvedev was giving an extensive interview to. a. georgian t.v. channel peak is a preview for the full version of that interview coming up in about an hour from now. unfortunately the situation in syria has taken a dramatic turn we real politicians should follow developments like gadhafi gave
violent orders to destroy the opposition the syrian president gave no such orders but unfortunately a lot of people are dying in syria this is our biggest concern in my private conversation with the president of syria and in the private letters i sent him i discussed the same ideals reforms need to be carried out you should establish peace with the opposition establish peace in the country but then create a multi-state if he fails to do that then a sad future awaits and at the end of the day we'll have to make a decision we are watching the situation it is changing our guidelines are to. meanwhile anti-government protests continue across syria despite an ongoing crackdown by the military reports suggest at least thirteen more protesters have been killed nationwide as the assault on the city of hama continues as is the opposition dismissed a decree from president assad proposing a multi-party government system saying the violence has to end before donald beginning his international pressure is growing on the syrian leadership to stop
the violence but the us say it's working to find new ways to try and influence the situation beyond sanctions. and islamic leadership tension of a very different kind in britain with hardline muslims trying to enforce sharia law in london from abstention to amputation artes nor and it's been hearing how they want to instill their tough code on the capital. so we are going to tell you that islam. is unstoppable in europe stoning for adultery cutting off hands for stealing a dash of the renouncing islam this group of men is trying to enforce shari'a law in the u.k. they've started a campaign to make certain areas of london and other cities islamic law controlled zones starting with wolf i'm still. getting a go because i knew some years ago targeted to the muslim of the muslim community ozomatli who believe the muslims kind of together trade according to the sharia was
all their problems. and even police themselves to a large extent hopefully one day to have a summit emirates which will have authority locally security locally and you provide well for locally choudhry and his friends are posting parts of london with large muslim populations they want to ban drinking gambling and playing music and they say they've got bands of young men ready to patrol and in full. by any means now that enforcement will not initially be in on the level of inviting and forbidden but if someone has the capability to be what in essentially something like pornography prostitution it should do so. and by that you mean it could of course i believe the mosque should be run out of the area these muslims say british society is riddled with drugs crime and prostitution because of that they firmly believe members of the communities that targeting will welcome sharia law but the word of the street about the campaign tells a different story comes down to refute
a lot of the laws of the place you live for and so my way. things are completely legal in this country this is not india or pakistan this is it england we've got our own laws people have no rights coming here bringing their laws in here we often have a cost i think trouble but councillor martin. this could destroy community cohesion. because we do not want these posters around. they have no place to move from forest this is an equality campaign is real support this shouldn't be considered a religious movement has a right to political organization with a place to campaign designed to divide and conquer communities there danger lies in dividing people dividing communities creating mistrust and particularly among from
non muslims towards moderate muslims i think this is part of their aim is to create mistrust so they can then turn to moderate muslims and say look everyone hates you we're your friend turn to us and it's a very very dangerous thing and it's a political tactic to increase their own power undeterred. group plan what they see is the beginning of an islamic emirate not just of the all over europe police have mobilized to take these posters down as fast as they appear but choudhry and his group say they formed bands of vigilante and forces to make sure. all physically and in other parts of london women have already been harassed for not covering their heads if these muslims ever get their way i won't be able to dress like this on the streets. or many other parts of london brussels rome and paris. filreis is
a writer on terrorism and political he told me that he thinks because britain's government doesn't treat the seriously that message is becoming dangerous. of course he takes a very literal reading of the koran and a literal understanding of sharia law and i think this goes to the heart of the problem for islam perhaps throughout the world and indeed for for muslims living in predominately muslim countries how do they interpret god's alice who was i was presented as revealed in the holy text and i think you know there is a real to break there are new facts it is someone who is prepared to take on this debate but the trouble is that it's never really discussed on a serious level because it is considered so outrageous and you know then it creates then the opposite of that which is non muslims in britain saying let's lock them up these people are dangerous so unfortunately what he's done is he's trivialize the debate which is a very serious one for muslims but it was an engine tragedy newsgroup that
triggered the formation of the english defense league in a town north of london called luke so actually you know while i know them and consider them i mean i've always talked to them a bit like the flintstones the way they behave but indeed because their messages can be amplified by the media all around the world they've had some very very serious consequences both in creating groups like the english defense league and perhaps even by a string of advance trickling people like i'm just breivik in norway and so you've got people saying well we have a right to do that because look at these people look at these radical muslims so in a way the idea is there are dangerous and i think people have got to rein back and start having mature debate of some of the issues beneath what what i'm talking about. filreis talking to be a little earlier on r t coming your way in just a few minutes from now complicit or not as a top secret documents suggest british intelligence agents were involved in torture in prisons for nearly a decade we talked to a former guantanamo detainee to find out what he went through. and also depots
rusher is given one of the biggest gold and copper fields for exploration. go takes a look at what it could mean for the economy. unrest has broken out in central kiev after a ukrainian judge ordered the arrest of former prime minister yulia timoshenko so i think contempt of court she's been on trial since june of alleged misuse of power deals with russia in two thousand and nine. has more now from the ukrainian capital . this isn't by a judge in a key of course ruled that units in ukraine's former prime minister is now placed under arrest now before that she was forbidden to leave the country now she is taken to a detention center and that's where she will spend her time until the trial comes to an end certainly the atmosphere inside and outside of the court building here in central kiev has been electrifying over the last several weeks or so ever since the
trial started in june supporters have been flocking here several hundred of them are now here protesting the decision which they believe politicized in the case itself they believe to be orchestrated by the country's president. now the atmosphere inside the courtroom reminded of the chaotic times in ukraine's politics when there were sporadic fights in ukraine's parliament fighting accusations those scenes we've seen inside the courtroom for the past several weeks certainly was the culmination when the judge ruled that tomasz uncle was to be placed under arrest supports as. prime minister as well as several deputies that the country's parliament tried to block the armored vehicle which was to take out from the building to the detention center they in fact blocked this. but then the policeman managed to disperse the crowd then the bus started to move with no problems
whatsoever. british intelligence services of allegedly been violating international law almost a decade and the top secret documents just agents were involved in the torture of prisoners held in a seize the policy was reportedly first implemented in two thousand and two in afghanistan. begg who spent three years in guantanamo and other prisons says he himself witnessed british intelligence agents being complicit. they were physically present when i was being abused they saw my shot at my shore my. guns pointed at me i was subject to the sounds of women screaming i was let the leap was my wife being tortured i am completely one hundred percent sure that i would not have gone to guantanamo or to bugger up had it not been for the involvement of british intelligence services i am the head of an organization called caged prisoners in which we have been campaigning for people to take without charge or trial by the us we have highlighted over thirty cases that include syria egypt. morocco
pakistan in which british intelligence services have been involved in or have been complicit where people have been abused in these countries and we have offered this information to the police in torah law you can a policy adviser for amnesty international in london says the inquiry announced into the torture and again sions is fundamentally flawed and there are a few key reasons why the inquiry is unable to do its job properly and the first of these is the rather shocking level of secrecy that surrounds the inquiry and much of the inquiry is going to take place behind closed doors and no information will be released to the public without the say so of the government which is very worrying for an inquiry that's supposed to be you know getting information to the public about about what's been going on very much hope that they will see that there will still be an inquiry which is open and fair and transparent and i think if there is a full open inquiry and lessons are learned from that then the u.k.

the given russia access to what's to be the planet's biggest gold fields for exploration but it won't come easy the in the deep sea deposits of the mid atlantic ridge. the details of the deal. russia has fifteen years to explore the the deep sea bed off the mid atlantic ridge in order to find out whether indeed this is specter gold and copper or are in fact contained there and if the research proves to be successful if they do find a war in the mid atlantic ridge that means russia gets the priority in the development of that field but this has never been done before no country has ever applied for the development of the all of the seabed into in international waters until last year china has decided that they wanted to ask for permission to research for any potential valuable material in the in the seabed off the indian
ocean so this of course brought forth a many opportunities for other countries who are interested in develop development of such resources particularly for russia there's the the arctic the arctic sea russia is very interested in possible development of a well and gas resource there in fact russia has for quite some time has been trying to prove that the a long lost of bridge in the arctic sea is in fact a continuation of russia's continental shelf and if they do prove that that in fact is the case of other countries agree with russia that that means russia will get to develop the possible incredibly rich oil and gas resources in that field of course russia has to compete with other countries who are also vying for the for the peace of the arctic by in those countries of course are canada the united states denmark norway and interestingly enough china. and look now at some other international

today where in the far eastern region it's a remote rich area holding russia's largest gold reserves and is russia's most eastern economic help post a member is making the most of its proximity to china as i said but found out. a very warm welcome to this edition of russia place out this week coming to you from the amour region situated in the very full this reaches of russia's far respect thousands of kilometers away from you in moscow but it may have played minutes by boat from china and all surprisingly the influence of china and its culture is everywhere here. high heels and a hard hat it's not a look many women can pull off but then lily white on arrests or if she prefers to be called in russia is no ordinary woman having first arrived in
a more as an interpreter in the iowa nineties she and her family worked their way up from running a small cafe to owning this large construction company. and spread across the region's capital blagoveshchensk no fewer than four large chinese restaurants full most nights and serving up the taste of the orient to russian dinah's it's an impressive pool failure and one that the mother of two says she couldn't have built in china you know. if they said i saw an opportunity to create something here russia needs skilled laborers and with china being so close and easy access to chinese goods and equipment and a ready workforce a. new mystery is just one of a growing band of successful chinese entrepreneurs operating in russia's far east where a river is all that separates the two countries easy proximity coupled with favorable visa regulations continues to inspire thousands of chinese workers people like
sucha to flock across the border every year his is a tried and tested business model selling cheap chinese clays. so whether it's a pair of a trendy train is that you're off to or perhaps the most designed a fungal says this is where the people of heads to pick up a bargain were instantly the chinese market which then the sense of town and of course everything inside had bad the label made in china and all the sellers also come from china and let me tell you it's absolutely packed in fights here and the party is like this every single day so clearly business is booming. i've been here for three years and i left china as they want not jobs things are going well. you can get things really cheap here which is great if you've got a large family the quality varies hugely but on balance i think we're lucky to have chinese traders here russian goods just can't compete on pricing. and by hopping on

a mere five minutes by boat across to china so close you always feel that you can reach out and touch it and people living here say that they've been witness to the phenomenal pace of development along the hype. slight representative of the growth of the chinese economy as a whole and its influence here in russia alice a bit more to region. along the way shortly a recap of our top stories with me buildout in just a couple of minutes before that though the latest business with dimitri. and warm welcome to business our team markets around the globe are seesawing even after a positive jobs report in the u.s. payrolls rose by one hundred seventeen thousand workers after a meager forty six thousand increase in june a stronger than expected report sparked a rebound but confidence seems fragile peter weston from add on capital believes
what we're seeing what we've been seeing is a relief rally and logical downturn. i think that what you're seeing is it's proving that the the u.s. economy is still growing but. still people are worried about a recession i think we're just seeing the market rebound is really investors clinging on to a little piece of good news in this kind of environment so i don't think that we should read anything. too soon to say. people were watching the coming data very closely and. the negative issues that were there yesterday are still there today it's just a little bit of sort of a little bit of a golden lining if you want this is what we call a relief rally which easily can turn south again if you see something coming out of spain and italy or anything else coming out of us very easily returning downwards again. must now move to the stock markets and in russia they join the panic across international trading rules your theory is down three percent my sixty two percent lower friday bringing the overall weekly lost eight and
a half and seven percent respectively so some of the individual moves on them i say examine g.e. majors among the worst performers on low oil prices gas from losing almost three percent growth in after two and a half percent at the lowest level since december of the world plunged in new york that's all speculation of fuel demand will fall to financial stocks were also under pressure and telecommunications company last telecom was one of the worst trading stocks down three point four percent. global in a season fluctuating. capital group says russian markets are likely to be the first to see an upswing. russia has had a fantastic run look at the. the great run over the last few weeks or so is slowly start to come off but it's coming off from the highs and with the increased amount of exposure to us that with a high amount of exposure to the oil and gas markets i feel that there is near term downside for russian equities to be had but when the recovery comes it will come at
