salutes family has been here for some time eighty awaiting avi union with a summit i have not seen for nearly five years now this complete a third phase our feet prisoner exchange it did see some four hundred. that and seventy seven prisoners released before daybreak today they were taken to two points one on the gaza border and another in the west bank but it doesn't complete the kind of questions that are there people are now beginning to ask in one of those questions is why has so much international media attention been put on the story of one soldier being released with some people suggesting that it is a well cheering israeli propaganda machine that manages to see this happen another concern of many israelis are raising is just whether or not this price is too high now certainly the surveys show that the majority of israelis do support the exchange but in private discussions many israelis are fearful let us create some kind of precedent that it will result in further israeli soldiers been kidnapped and i've been talking to the families of kidnapped and missing israeli soldiers
there's nearly a dozen of them and they say that in no way was as much attention put on finding their sons as was argued actually it and this is what they had to say. every day. comes here to a place that looks after israeli soldiers who are alone in the country who come from difficult backgrounds of being here is often more of a comfort to him and the youngsters he hopes because it brings him that little bit closer to his son mashpee who disappeared one year before gilad shalit was taken hostage. i have some of those over and over again the government and the country are not doing enough for my little. proximal gave to the saudi family there are at the moment seven israeli soldiers who've been kidnapped or who missing in action now as nissan measure disappeared while hitchhiking to his army base major one of our it was captured twenty five years ago after his aircraft was shot down over live and on these are the last pictures of him alive taken in
a prison in iran guy haver disappeared fourteen years ago he was last seen at his army base one kilometer from the syrian border. it's infuriating it's an acceptable that as. for fourteen years the government still has nothing to tell us our demand is that the government bring us any information alive dead here in lebanon and syria just bring it but they've brought us nothing. so we just search and her son is still alive and while she's pleased to gloat is coming home she's disillusioned a new government that made it possible for him but not for her son. it's about media attention b.r. how he wants nearly succeeded in marketing their son we saw it as a family this was a growl as we thought it was enough guy was an i.d.f. soldier in uniform but we were wrong very very wrong.
this is a country that depends on its army for its survival is an unwritten code that every soldier who goes to war must be brought back home this will be hard because of the freakin actually campaign twenty two years his brain with family and supporters camped out here in front of the prime minister's office every morning when netanyahu left his home he was reminded about the soldier who could not return to his beloved by you really i'm not embarrassed to say that the government and the country are not doing enough for my son and the rest of those missing in action it is important for us to bring our soldiers home experience will send their sons to war we need to knock the country will do everything possible to get them dot org it's done just that in the case of gilad shalit but at what cost will militants now be empowered to kidnap and nothing is really soldier and will israel be willing to pay this price again policy r.t. jerusalem. was gauging reaction on the developments on the historic prisoner swap
you can a follower of dates on twitter which is a poll a slayer underscore our t. direct report into you from the center of the story and you can always click on r.t. dot com for footage from the various locations involved. in the exchange. new york police officers being investigated over allegations they used excessive force against occupy wall street protesters is this videotape last friday that gave the crown to one of the employees the officer thought to be a deputy inspector killing the grabbing activist from behind punching him in the face so hard that the man fell down an independent agency that deals with complaints against the n.y.p.d. says it's also looking into an officer using pepper spray on apparently peaceful protesters against a corporate campaign has been going on for more than a month now as archie's lucy confidant reports despite police handling and continuing to arrest the number of demonstrators is growing. one here in zuccotti park liberty plaza at the been dubbed by the occupy wall street protest movement
here in new york city this was the scene of thousands of demonstrators who had converged over the weekend to show their support for what they called an international day of rage that's all occupations and demonstrations spread not only across the united states but across the world thousands have been averted in times square where they were peacefully demonstrating only to be met with an unprecedented show force by the new york city police department approximately ninety protesters were arrested for partaking in those demonstrations we also saw instances the police officers on horseback riding into the crowd police officers on scooters injuring several protesters who had gathered peacefully at the demonstrations roll across the country it does appear that the police response is growing in force as well on monday morning we saw in seattle a total of about nine protesters arrested after about two hundred fifty of them refused to take down their tents and the occupation there over the weekend we also
saw the arrests of more than one hundred protesters in arizona in two separate occupy wall street demonstrations and in chicago as well where thousands have gathered to demonstrate their support for what they call a mood. against the perceived corruption in washington and wall street about a hundred and seventy five demonstrators arrested there as well despite the fact that it's a weekday despite the fact that folks have work to go to that movement does seem to be spreading whether or not it's going to have any impact on the political and economic system and united states remains to be seed but the numbers continue to grow for our t.v. i'm lucy couch in new york. well the wall street wave sweeps the u.s. over banks bursting profits it's the threat of going bust that's occupying the minds of greeks believe it or not their parliaments considering even more austerity despite workers already putting the country on stand still saying the cuts are no sure more on that coming your way soon but first. russia may find me joining the
world trade organization next month but siemens is investing one billion euros in the russian economy and china's g.d.p. figures came in worse than expected more on that and other stories in fifteen minutes time on business so. before we get to that serbs in northern kosovo have now been given till tuesday to take down their border barricades even though their removal could post trouble to flare up at any moment they were build in protest against attempts by kosovo police and assistance with the e.u. and nato forces to take over border crossings with serbia peacekeepers are ordered to access roads be clear it will do it themselves but as artie's maria financial reports the serbs own demands seem set in stone. stones and sound are the only weapons the serbs leaving in cos they have in their arsenal to make the others listen to them. the roadblocks they set up throughout the northern part of the region are making headlines and getting feedback morning but we ask you not to
produce a period when you threaten your safety of negative consequences for you and for you bastards talking about us well the only negative force present here local resident by two ways written in the flat kay for it later that international peacekeeping force in kosovo has been spreading here recently. propaganda by oh we don't want them here it was like we do want to talk to them. the mayor of the northern course of a town of leprosy which is talking to k four plunker has been among the faults i think it's from serbs to negotiate with peacekeepers on dates and terms of the barricades removal case for has announced on monday deadline but than postpone it to tuesday the serbs have claimed they needed more time but me good billion police and institutions some leave northern constable and never return here but if they leave will remove roadblocks and one state if they don't meet or demands back again.
initially designed to prevent possible custom officers from reaching the checkpoints at the northern border with serbia rubble the roads have made trouble for many key for complain they have access to their troops in the north they're using helicopters to transport supplies and soldiers and the serbs themselves suffering to. disease i go for a story where they struck the ground here is still freshly dug the serbs are building roads aren't turning to for outs to reach serbia from kosovo as the main roads have been blocked with their barricades in the last several weeks the only other alternative a train but a trans only once a day and always packed so it doesn't really count this is why new bypass road. and here we thin nominal speed we've seen at least seven of them. gallery but.
the lot of reason one volunteers here has one of the costs of inserts and speaks for all of them super speed there will still. be good work there but also. we're returning to the barricades in the evening people are still there all of them have their usual jobs teachers engineers miners. but here they call themselves soldiers and use war rhetoric. this is our land we will not surrender principle truth the future through children another land that. they say one man can't win a war if you gather people may form a real force but even if their weapons i just stands and sound. refill should not see course about. that archie dot com tell us who you think is to blame for the
resurgent pressure in kosovo here's how the opinion stacks up vis our two thirds of respondents are sure it's washington that's pushing kosovo and japan independence then a fairly even split between whether belgrade is to blame for not protecting kosovo serbs or hold it against the e.u. for failing to uphold the law six percent blame prishtina for escalating the conflict and allowing persecution of the serbs lived on to. cast their vote. so i can hear putin's decision to run for the presidency next year has dominated the news in russia for nearly a month now in his first big interview since confirming he'll stay in the prime minister said having the backing of the current president and the ruling party doesn't mean the election results are a foregone conclusion. as regards my return nothing is decided until the people have voted with their are people who criticize me and to me to me beautiful they say that if your humble servant takes part in the election that would mean there would be no election at all perhaps that would be the case for
them as it would an ordinary citizen always has a choice to make so our critics might see it their own way but in this case they ought to present their platform and what's more important to me and not only to present as you would also to prove in practice that they can do these john better there is another important aspect here the most active part of the political spectrum people who talk about democratic institutions they are concerned the democratic process has made the rules back this is definitely not going to happen. well bring you more key moments from the lot of your putin's interview with russia's top caving channels in the next hour here on r.t. . the u.s. is applying one hundred special operations troops to uganda it's in their help the fight against the lord's resistance army a girly group which has terrorized the country and other parts of central africa for decades its leader is wanted for war crimes but asia times correspondent pepe escobar says the u.s. agenda in africa already goes beyond protecting civilians. first of all this is an
