and the. lines on our t.v. a deadly situation develops in northern kossovo as nato implement a shoot to kill orders to the polish robots goeth by a local serbs near a disputed track point. people living in tripoli take to the streets and heard a formal rubbles nearly god save the city all people in one of the few remaining gadhafi stronghold suffer from a deepening from that experience. also operation occupy wall street grows in the us against all the corporate influence on people's fear returns towards the police calling a series of arrests and cases of little behavior. that the media makes
it's judged on russia's political future in the wake of the nutriment get its interview over his decision not to seek a second term. the stuff of midnight here in the russian capital that you're watching r.t. now we begin in northern kossovo where nato peacekeepers have used to shoot to kill threats to break a roadblock price or protesters on the border well earlier attempts to remove it this week failed and left several serbs injured parties i'd say in a show of ski's close to the action with this report. on friday the cave for troops removed one of the barricades which. was set up in order to block the police and the k. for 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 serbs obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another a manmade checkpoint two large trucks on a bridge that's blocking the road the access for troops into the northern part of course there was 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 lungs the most interesting fact here is that the k.
four troops and nato have been trying to do to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors in local hospitals told us that they those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to the room. seven men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises they were not from rubber bullets not a single of them had a rubber room all those wounds were caused by regular bullets which we extract from their bodies. 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 determination of the sort of people is very strong to show that they do not want to be part of the course of the republic. and they are telling us to leave because we have nowhere to leave this is because constable is our land our home and
our life it seems that we are on our own now and we will 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 a service of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deep 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 all the actions of the nato peacekeepers may only provoke and not prevent more violence that's according to belgrade based political analyst alex . they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when they were the air force for the albanian separatists are now acting as their infantry so this is what we have said this is 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 they're actually bringing conflict. everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for our albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in july and ever since then they've been giving them full support so they're encouraging actually the government in prishtina headed by caution toci who is wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking and that they're encouraging him to more violence that they're not a peace factor at all they're total factor of war and the stabilization. artes and i say have a chef he is in kosovo and we'll be bringing you updates as and when i think happen meanwhile you can also head to our team's free video page to get the precious

news and he thinks that people are now realizing the cost of blindly supporting the revolutionary forces. there was 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 qaida one of the leaders who was killed recently and she 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 to al qaeda and was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that people with the guns on the side of the libyan rebels and how the government are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how they sound when you get down to the point of once the country under the control of this is force which side of this force will will be predominant. libyan
revolutionary forces say they have surrounded the city of syria i get out of the strongholds meanwhile aid agencies are alarmed at the thousands of civilians fleeing the besieged town people are being driven from their homes by fierce fighting as well as a lack of supplies rob alliance deputy editor of the independent online magazine spike says the situation has already been made worse by nato. and this is the they have a small consequence of the think things that i got rolling back in february you know the kind of half hearted intervention was always going to end up with the last stand by gadhafi forces who is this is the kind of last stand that we expected in tripoli a few weeks ago that never happened and really clearly there's a loss and the thing about the role of the international community no could be making things worse not simply by bombarding the city boy actually having made such a fuss about civilians being injured or hurt even though they created healthy but i say that if given the could duffey forces
a real focus to keep civilians in the city. probably against their will i'm sure many of them would like to get out of there no. effect if they become a kind of shield by which the they can they can stay there for a strike on for a bit longer. although and insights of the libyan conflict many are warning it could follow the path of the afghan war that's been raging for a decade now literally the program we asked people in new york what they think ten years of fighting have achieved. even if we see there another hundred years for a war there for the better be for something we better be and something that it even that's going to happen now more opinions on the worthiness of the afghan war from the big just a few minutes. process one of the worst droughts in decades forces a growing number of farmers in india to take their own lives look at why their
families brain the state make sure. that hundreds of people have hit the streets of portugal's two biggest cities to protest against a sturdy measures the dirt road and country have asked for a seventy eight billion euro rescue package of bates' avoid bankruptcy the larger the bailout lisbon agreed to implement harsh parts but is still fighting to reduce its budget deficit and another struggling euro zone state greece is trying to convince international inspectors that it deserves another portion of its bailout the greek government has pushed through pension cuts and extra taxes to try and please its creditors we have dartmouth that i mean for the u.k. independence party says the e.u. obsession with the euro can only end in disaster. for the greek people a concern i hear is to the single currency means higher taxes low government expenditure and cuts in the son of the living but also for and also even even for
a country like germany and france specifically a country like germany and here is the single currency 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 should be where we are now. and it is because of the fanaticism of this european elite and we should look very carefully what they have to say in the future these are you few men and they are discredited me and what is very worrying is that as my as my father used to say to me when i was a young man 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 because 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 koreans of yours which are required are actually paid off and called on and it's not only greeks up in arms about the situation they've been

women were surrounded by police nabbed and nice with pepper spray but these protesters say they're willing to pay any price to get their voices heard a lot of people are on the one percent. you know a fraction of the one percent that have all the money and really all of our if you think about it because they say goes they influenced a lot of decisions which doesn't help anyone else but them. that's why everyone else is going through the process together first and it's maybe. this is becoming this is what america is something the stance in the structure perhaps seventy thousand people essentially storm the capitol building because there was one of the union support that that is too thin to have. any of these demonstrators are planning to see here and roll numbers into a real he's pretty much after all if the arab spring was applauded by the powers that be why not listen to
a similar type of change. as the situation is pretty. well as the authorities are accused of trying to silence the agony voices on wall street parties max cars are at stacy herbert are refusing to stay quiet that's when it's in concert g.m.t. they look at why is summer so keen it's. with an end to financial rumors. the world bank the fed the be all we 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 yeah no it's papantonio and he is that talking about this rumors of a fifty percent. haircut in greek debt should a solution require a fifty percent haircut as as i believe the current finance minister suggested of you know the comforts me is closer closer if you did this and he said beings who should be a dangerous proposition for greece. tonio financial herpes i mean that's and he
doesn't want to talk about it understandably but the cure for financial. 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've been fornicating at the i.m.f. they gave you the financial harpies now you're a pariah. all the russian press is chewing over a president again of the latest interview where he explained his decision not to enter the upcoming presidential race across it and admitted he shares common goals so bloody were uprooted the current prime minister's high popularity levels make him the best man for the candidacy are physical reaction from the papers. well the president's interview with the heads of the three biggest t.v. stations in russia did focus on some of the most important the latest political events in the country such as his decision not to run for
a second term in office his recommendation of prime minister why do you want him for the top job and to the sudden dismissal of former finance minister alex seek who didn't so there's a loss of analysis and opinions in salaries press in russia opinions both positive and not so positive was started with the claim of the sun newspaper really worried well known here in russia and it's published an article try to show you this polish laura go under the title of what were you after and what's your ambition and the analysts that the newspaper was talking to have been saying that even though the the media has finally announced his political plans and the plans of his stand them with prime minister why do you put in there still a lot of uncertainty since the official political programs for the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections still have not been announced however this point of view is not shared by the analysts that these this deal newspaper or spoke
to some other well known big newspaper in russia is probably still not to go under the title of how significant is the timing and its analysts have been saying that meeting with media has finally managed to close the deal list of the biggest clears during the upcoming presidential election next more trouble no loss of focus is definitely on the sudden business or has no former finance minister alex equal you know who is always thought to be the key ally both of the government's hands off the president's administration for the coming newspaper says that step to dismiss him like receiving more questions into what else could happen while the meeting if he's still in office. however there are analysts who see that the dismissal just shows that the president is serious in his ambitions just too much of the problem and she oh action will be held in russia in the summer and the presidential pull be
held next more cheney thing has been still according to me to be it's still going to be up to the people to decide who gets to run because she next despite any recommendation that he meet this is. a political analyst nikonov told r.t. of the poll logic and this should have read yet his decision was clear the day it was announced but now i think this situation is pretty logical. and media football for representing this same political force united russia not being completely similar not being poisons in politics they're still pretty close we'll logically and politically at this point as we did if explained. is more popular. himself and the question is about winning the next presidential election there are tremendously it will be
a fight put it was more equipped to leave united russia in there for the next presidential struggle at the same time you did it for years keeping his position as an important political figure as a potential prime minister and potential leader of the united russia which makes him a politician with good perspective in the future. well you can watch the full version of that interview on our website r.t.e. dot com. now devastated by drought and crops killed by chemicals farmers in india face a battle for survival one of the driest seasons in decades is left thousands of farmers across the country with little crops and big debts even prompting some to take their own lives and authorities preassure reports the government is ignoring this 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

ninety's farmers were able to make around sixty dollars per acre of land every year 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 . by the government is neglecting agriculture basic information like wind power will be there or not is not available for the farmers the government is no providing sufficient loans which is forcing from its cynical move because 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 come. it's suicide we farmers are leaving a very sad life sinking water levels mean these walls are useless but have left

people of new york streets if they believe this war story will ever have a happy ending. it's been ten years since the u.s. bound to 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 the benefit so what is going doing there for ten years i don't know what they have behavior and i don't know it's probably another viet nam call of. war where it probably is not a winner. the other soldier going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others going at things clearcut see that it's not worth it i don't see a goal and i 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 there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all very controversial question there's
a present time situation one of the proudest proses i think that we have to make a statement that we aren't able to. see 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 had great states we're in there with them but what we have to do. well eventually we got to bring peace and i mean that's such a medalist thing right like what we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say whether it was worth it or you know so 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 yeah most americans feel that way you know i'm sure a lot of americans there we go for a win and so i i look at history i mean for
a for a war there for that long i mean i better be for something and we better be. it's a bit out of it 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 that unfortunately no one in power seems to be listening. to stay with us here on our tail the back with a recap of our top stories in just a few minutes.
