. more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images. from the streets and candy that. operations are ruled today. in syria at least six people reported killed in latest clashes between protesters and security forces human rights groups continue sounding the alarm over multiple arrests and killings but one high profile victim made an amazing reappearance or he's never been reports on the media's reaction at the expense of fact checking. she was hailed as the flower of syria the symbol of the suffering under president bashar assad's brutal regime at least that's what much of the western media said after the apparent butchering of zeinab al hosni we're viewed pictures of what was
done to xena corpse and they are simply too gruesome to air several western media outlets were quick to report hellholes in these gruesome death apparently the first woman killed in government custody but now it appears she's miraculously back from the dead even being interviewed on syrian t.v. . i came to the police station to see the truth this what i see to those line channels i'm now still alive not dead human rights groups like amnesty international jumped on the bandwagon to reporting out hosni was tortured murdered and mutilated it even claimed mother found the body in a morgue last month all assertions is now being forced to backtrack on this we will endeavor to be more cautious and phrase things a little bit more nuanced the state broadcaster says the interviews to dispel what it labels fabrications by foreign media to serve western interests and stories like
this that have been used to prop up calls from the u.s. britain and france for un sanctions to be slapped on syria but their foundations are now looking shaky or the never this footage religiously shows unarmed assad civilians being targeted by gun toting rebels so perhaps not the peaceful opposition they're often made out to be by the west that only seems to look one way . this notion that the u.n. has is now part of this pro-democracy receipt regime is ridiculous they are jumping on that bandwagon is an opportunity to get out front of it and create its deceptive appearance while at the same time they're supporting the dictatorships that are aligned with them in the united nations and it's part of their empire russia and china vetoed a u.n. resolution for syria seeing through it as a potential cover for another libyan stall intervention so they may not be any oil this time but there's always an ulterior motive it's importance who's as a jew political fact right next to israel
a country which obviously america and britain and the other western powers strongly support so that would be the altar into a political motive the vetoes of followed by security council war council america over remarks during the syrian envoy speech but the u.s. promised to be back with another resolution and undoubtedly more dramatic evidence to drive the point home on the bennetts. london. stay with us here on our team coming up one step closer to being part of the u.n. we track the palestinian bid for recognition at the u.n. where they've just been given a nod to join the bodies of cultural. but first greece's latest twenty four hour nationwide strike turned violent with police firing tear gas tear gas and angry crowds of protesters the country all but ground to a halt as greeks made their feelings known about the extra cuts they face so the country can try and plug the massive three hundred fifty billion euro debt or to sour for
a thousand more from athens. anger in athens syntagma square once again bearing witness ok clashes between right place here is protesting so we go. back out here again all right. thanks larry. and the pensions really be my thing as the police moved in to clear the crowds some shocking things one point the police chasing protesters into the metro station many others hit and kicked by they supposed to be keeping control. but the message being sent by the government is one of repression and fear. seems like this is very serious questions about the level of force being used. to priors is a forty three year old journalist who's reported from many conflicts. but it was in his own country where he sustained his worst injury. i just remember thinking is this really happening because i took shelter in an enclosure just talking and one
policeman who i think was a commander in a very. taking pictures i told him i was a journalist but he gave an order and i had one of the flash bangs thrown at me these are some of the pictures i took. the place he taken shelter amplified the sound of the flash bang causing always takes. injury which is. after the attack i won't call it an accident it was an attack like a small. an investigation was launched into the incident the progress has been slow a fact the nameless tells the countless cases against heavy handed police tactics in any kind of results we witness for ourselves the lack of discrimination when the police lash out when journalists along with his camera to the ground the rise in the level of aggression seen by the police and the more extreme groups of protesters is causing serious concern with the government continuing to implement severe austerity measures in a bid to receive the cash pensions looks set to keep escalating i think.
these will be explained in the form of. the first reaction. has been experienced by. the impact of the financial crisis is being played out play by play well sometimes in the square there are now fears that the financial crisis ten into an economic recession could bring entire year is a look just to bring people to then we. see that. greece's financial process is being worsened by the admission it won't meet its budget targets economic analyst martin hannett he thinks the only way for the country to survive is to default and start fresh. if they default it may actually not be the seeing and not just graves i would think if you did it falls it may also
not be the same because then they are after that and start again debt free they don't have to increase taxes they can devalue their currency is have lower taxes become more competitive again so. that may actually be potentially the best solution on the other hand if they bail out everything you would sacrifice in their currency stability of the euro the world we think is the most likely cause or believe if the leaders for example in germany are managing to sell that was are to the public. they are most likely to print and sacrifice currencies the ability in order to avoid this uncontrolled collapse would be quite difficult for politicians to tear people your money in the bank is gone. well stay with us here on r.t. still to come keeping fit officially a report from russia's pen's arena where the governors keep fit monterey's keeping the population a healthy by law plus. brushes

that we should eat more fruits and vegetables drink less exercise more of course many people ignore these recommendations in fact working for the government will be very frustrating always telling people to do stuff but having no way of enforcing it now what would happen if you could actually make people follow through and be more healthy well officials are no longer have to wonder because in penza that's exactly what the government has done is introduced a new ambitious and often compulsory program forcing people to be healthier now for the results even report. getting healthier whether they like it. every weekday morning at ten am the time only in state institutions across spends or begins a familiar announcement a. cheerful voice or so it's worked out by now familiar exercises of the governor's instructions no one is allowed to slack off. some go beyond what's required.

but the only way i am abusing human rights is by not giving people the opportunity to do even more physical exercise. as the clock strikes ten. the police are out in force. looking for bad children the governor has imposed a curfew for unsupervised under sixteen so. as not i think it is a waste of police time tell those children with their arrests and return to their homes we haven't seen them out on the streets again and this day there are no violators at all as the troll wraps up with. the certains of pens they can sleep well. safe in the knowledge that with a passing day they're healthier more conscientious and the streets are increasingly free for all you. know. we've got more for you to discover on our website. and see what else was online for
