troops brutally dispersed a crowd of serbian protesters at a makeshift roadblock witnesses say the troops fired live ammunition at peaceful demonstrators and have now established a forceful presence in the area are. in the hot spot and sends us this report. on friday the k. four troops removed one of the barricades which. the course was set up in order to block the police and the k. four troops from gaining access to the area and we understand that more than one hundred k. four troops came over there pointed their guns at the serbs blockading this particular area and ordered them that they should leave the service obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another a manmade checkpoint and they pulled through large trucks on a bridge thus blocking the road access into the northern part of course of all still more than ten people remain in local hospitals and neither of us in the
town of. after being injured in tuesday's clashes with the k. four troops we managed to pay them a visit and ask them what exactly happened on tuesday. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be a perforated my longleat the most interesting fact here is that the k. four troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors and local hospitals told us that they that those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to his own fortune seven men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises there were not wounds from rubber bullets not a single of them had
a rubber room all those wounds were caused by regular bullets which we extract it from their bodies and now the serbs may have lost one of their checkpoints but they have lots more around the area we've counted more than ten different checkpoints the. the determination of the sort of people is very strong now to show that they do not want to be part of the course of a republic. on the whole that they are telling us to leave but we have no way to leave this is because cos liberal is our land our home and our life it seems to agree on our own now stand our ground. there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states accusing the course of the serbs of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deepest concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing dispute but in reality this could destabilize the situation
in the whole region. reporting there and as tempers rise yet again and possible the presence of nato troops there may be becoming stimuli for yet more violence rather than a barrier against it and that's according to alexander pov a little analyst in belgrade. they've totally and openly stepped out of there you want to mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian separatists. there infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and of the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that they're actually. destabilizing the situation there are actually bringing conflict . everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border
control why and ever since then they've been giving them full support so they're encouraging actually the government in prishtina. headed by a caution chief who is wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking that they're encouraging him to more violence that they're not a peace at all they're true of war and destabilization. and we'll be bringing you more updates from costco as they happen but if there's anything you missed or you want to see the latest videos from there at around the world over to our you to cal at youtube dot com slash r t i found the latest pictures to the most wide range you can see and it's all there on our channel so we've got all the latest news features interviews and analysis and you can also have your say there in the comments section discuss the news with us telling you we're going to add to you tube dot com

residents of the libyan capital tripoli have taken to the streets to protest the presence of heavily armed revolutionary fighters bands of young rebels brandishing weapons flooded the city during the capital's fall back in august meanwhile thousands of civilians have been fleeing coastal city of syria due to intensify fighting between and broken down heavy shelling and tank fire has been heard on the eastern and western fronts and nato planes were seen flying overhead aid agencies are alarm bell is saying that the town is plunging into a humanitarian chaos with supplies of water power and food dressed in a red cross official in tripoli says the internally displaced people or i.d.p.'s are in a desperate situation. but the situation inserts we have heard. and
it. of and a lot of difficulties with the with the water supplies with access to food and access to medical supplies and medical health services we have not been able to have the guarantees from all the sides all the parties to the conflict so we have no idea of what's going on right now in the city of sirte unfortunately what we do know is that there are a lot of i.d.p.'s coming out people are fleeing from the city of sirte passing through bridge and many of these ideas peace have choosing to remain around as closely as possible today hometown they are living in difficult conditions there are a lot of children and women also pregnant women who have difficult access to medical
care so the situation is dire we are very concerned especially about their health situation right now and for broken obvious supporters the outlook seems grim robert perry from online investigative magazine consortium news says those who backed the colonel have no chance in the new libya because no one will protect them . it seems that the goal now is to simply wipe out what's left of gadhafi forces and to bring the country under the control of the former rebels who are now recognized as the official government of libya in other words the people the state of the civilians who happen to be on the side of khadafi are not going to be protected they're going to be punished how far they go with that it's unclear there may be efforts to negotiate some final surrender but clearly there's a great deal of suffering going on and these civilians are not being protected there is evidence even going back to the very beginning that the eastern part of
libya was a hotbed of islamic radicalism some of these people have been connected to al qaeda one of the al qaeda leaders who was killed recently a tia was a libyan and he came from this general area and now we know that one of the leaders of the rebel forces that took tripoli was also considered very close joe biden was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that the people with the guns on the side of the libyan rebels are now the government are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how that also sorts out when you get down to the point of once the country is under the control of this of this force which side of this force will will be predominant. the u.s. backed military operation in libya still hasn't brought a peace to the region and despite this being its primary goal this is america's stand your presence in afghanistan still struggles to the country's turmoil. over

in an effort to satisfy e.u. demands return for yet more debt form of bailouts and according to william darkness an m.e.p. for the u.k. and parents party the e.u.'s obsession with the euro could only end in disaster. as far as the greek before a concern out here is to the single currency means higher taxes lower government expenditure and it cuts in the son of the living and also for and also even even for a country like germany in fact specifically a country like germany appearance of the single currency it means massive transfer payments paid to countries in southern europe and what's happening is that the germans are no longer putting up with it we shouldn't be where we are now and it is because of the fanaticism all of this european elite and we should look very. what they have to say in the future these are guilty men and they are discredited men what is very worrying is that as my as my father used to say to me when i was a young man he said if you make a financial guarantee the nature of five financial guarantees is that they get
caught and there is a limit to how much even a country like germany can produce and of course a country like france is actually much much less and there will be a long term question marks over the credit credit worthiness of france and germany if the multiple trillions of your is which are required are actually paid up and called on. and was growing markets certainty that the greek crisis will and default argues max kaiser in states herbert discussed why the greek government is so determined to ignore rather than tan to their reality because a report is coming your way and less than fifteen minutes but here's a brief preview. the world bank the fed to be oh you all agree there we can't talk the truth here in the financial world here's a little video clip i want to turn to and this is the former greek finance minister yano us papantonio should a solution require a fifty percent haircut as as i believe the card from iran's minister is the gist of it we may see it the most from the financial crisis in greece video. in effect
to the rest of the eurozone and the discussion and such options. yes pop antonio financial harpies i mean that's and he doesn't want to talk about it understandably but the cure for financial herpes yanis pap antonio is you've got to talk about it you've got to go to the doctor or whatever and you've got to take care of your financial harpies i realize it's embarrassing and you should have been fornicating at the i.m.f. they gave you the financial harpies. devastated by by pesticides and drought farming doesn't get much tougher than in india one of the driest seasons in decades has left thousands of farmers across the country with a little crops a big debts even forcing some to take their own lives and as our reports the
government has turned a blind eye to a growing problem. the sun is shining on these farm lands in southern india commonly known as the country's rice bowl they may look watch but the grass is far from greener out here farmers are killing themselves in the thousands on the closets all of those most of the farmers are committing suicide due to the soviets or farmers who committed suicide rommel locksmiths husband is one of many who succumbed to drought and debt and took his own life some of the driest seasons in decades and an increase in pesticides and fertilizers have rendered their land bare for the grieving families left behind the future is ground. how should i carry on with my life just nothing is good for me and my children and there is no one to help us how do i bear this trouble someone is to help us just on the a good while the government has attempted to deal with the high number of farmer
suicides by compensating two thousand dollars to affected families many families say they haven't received any money and even those who have say it's not enough studies show that during the ninety's farmers were able to make around sixty dollars we've heard of acre of land every year from today just about forty dollars for almost four acres of land the government has pledged billions of dollars in relief package is to farmers and promise to increase the minimum rate on certain exports but many believe the farmers are being ignored. the government is neglecting agriculture basic information like wind power will be there or is not available to the farmers the government is not providing sufficient loans which is forcing us to knock on the doors of money lenders. those who've tried to beat the drought themselves took out huge loans to dig wells but for many it's in vain.
we are losing by making these wells but we are surviving because we are determined not to. we leading a very most sinking water levels mean these wells are useless but have left a deep hole in farmer's pocket the state beings turned their backs on those who couldn't repay their debts the loan sharks are now demanding high interest rates and won't take no for an answer we have the money lenders and financiers are frequently visiting or torturing you know it's we want to be a huge sume widows like rama lux me are now the breadwinners tending to two acres of farmland and rolling cigarettes to earn money to feed her children like her late husband she has no one to turn to and no way out a lonely life even though there are thousands just like her preassure either r t tell him gonna india. now is take a look at some other stories from around the world and thousands of medical workers
took to the streets of the chilean capital demanding an improvement in the labor conditions health unions organized the seventy two hour strike against privatizing the sector accusing the government of the lack of dialogue with health workers chile has also been witnessing a large scale student protests demanding the government continues to provide free public education. the white house says the drone strike that targeted u.s. born terrorist also hit a top al qaeda bomb maker delivering a major double blow to the group both of them were allegedly involved in a number of attacks on american clothing if oil the christmas day bombing in two thousand and nine american writer and investigative journalist jeremy scahill says it's still unclear if he posed a genuine threat to u.s. security. most of the people yapping about adora locky had never heard of him or if they did they probably knew something that was factually incorrect you know the
reality is that most credible sources say that this was a guy. his primary threat to the united states was his ability to go on youtube and preach his message of hatred and let's also remember and no one wants to talk about this. after nine eleven was a mainstay of the news hour with jim lehrer he was in the washington post as a voice of moderation condemning nine eleven but also condemning u.s. policy so it's quite likely that anwar lucky himself was radicalized as a result of what was perceived widely in the muslim world to be a war against islam we don't spend a lot of time studying or talking about blowback in this country but we should because you could make a reasonable case that he was a product of u.s. policy he seemed to be a guy that was very much critical of nine eleven up to the u.s. invasion of iraq afghanistan mark stand here since the u.s. invasion but as artie's lower harvard has found out u.s. citizens still don't believe this war story will have
a happy ending. it's been ten years since the us bombed afghanistan as a prelude to an ongoing war a decade later has it been worth it this week let's talk about that for wars as no benefit so what are they still doing there for ten years i don't know what the hell . they had here and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war where the problem is not a we're not. going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others dying it seems clear cut see that it's not worth it i don't see it go and really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did the right of the star with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all a very controversial question and there's pros and cons to the situation what are
the pros the pros is i think that we have to make a statement that we aren't able to. say things sitting down that we have a voice and whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how does it go on for ten years that you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no winner over there we have great. we're in there with them but what do we have to do. well eventually we got to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like why we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only time will tell you got a really know enough about it so to say whether it was worth it or in it do you think that's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a problem. but do you think most americans feel that way and you know i'm sure a lot of americans there they have a go pro and and so i i look at it this way i mean for a for a war there for that long i mean it better be for something and we better be
getting something out of it do you think that's going to happen now it seems like most people don't feel like the u.s. war in afghanistan has been worth it unfortunately no one in power seems to be listening. best guys or will be scrutinizing the greek government's ability to deal was a financial crisis and that's after the headlines in just a couple of minutes. the
