it was undemocratic to fight the race but i don't think the rest of the country and the fact that they've already priced their freedom of expression and. such convictions accosting a cloud a very artistic plans actions which the great and the good as the arab media industry a quick to condemn after being burned for years until a very hard line parties like the misnamed for the years and the newly created look i think could gain serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament and people here in egypt. has. to. watch is will that new egypt look like the greeks like i will it means in pleasing much streets said mr lim kinds have no problem with. this system so we have our culture out of this our culture.
and out of a club and. we live in egypt so. i think the system and the laws have to come from this culture and this culture means islamic. law many of these pushing for implementing shari'a law in egypt at least publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already selling stick changes taking place a lot of people who are currently governmental kind of this for president are being very cautious about the statements that they make with the go to policy everyone is preaching moderate islamists but the same time there's an undercurrent like for instance we're going to change that equation three kingdoms likely we're not going to make schools but we're going to preach religion better at schools they matter how settled their differences may be at the moment egypt's ethnic sheik restraint in meeting its each and there is still this is what happens right now could be felt
for generations serious. the military council condemned wednesday's attack for the news conference and reaffirmed its willingness to step down after the presidential election but political activist after midnight gave believes the latest violence is actually the generals latest attempt to destabilize egypt with moves that have roots back in the revolution. they've been definitely there since day one of the revolution but this is what the military council kept calling or referring to a third party this party have been part of the militias the national democratic party and the state security i put out this past twenty years those are all of them very intense criminal records and they're being used instead. of. militias all the army itself so they're doing the dirty work for the military council they've tried already they're out in november and december during the parliamentary elections but it failed they trying to drive the muslim brotherhood
into the square so that they can declare martial law and say that the muslim brotherhood is a violent violent group but they failed to do that now they're trying to do the same thing and every single time it turned against they've obviously not learned the lessons of the following mubarak's steps exactly and that's why they've managed to unify everyone again all the liberals and the brotherhood and these everyone is in the same trench right now against the military council. and on the other side of the mediterranean spain gears up for its own austerity fuel protests the police running past alona streets ahead of expected mass demos that as european central bank bosses decide on the euro's future you know more about that coming up and the trigger tremors and even poisoned water supplies but british leaders insist they will plow on regardless with a controversial method to extract underground gas despite the costs to resit.
america's chief diplomat is urging china to help rein in tensions over iran and north korea's nuclear activities hillary clinton is in beijing right now and said both the u.s. and china should work together to restrain pyongyang from further provocation and prevent iran from developing a nuclear weapon clinton's visit comes at an extremely delicate time in their relations beijing accuses the u.s. of meddling in its internal affairs after the u.s. embassy briefly sheltered the chinese dissident activist also irritated over washington's military buildup in the asia pacific something chinese experts say is a good thing beijing a bit of. the u.s. strategy is swedish try to encircle china from ordering from japan to the philippines where it now and now india three quarters the way the u.s. is calling china and expression in south china sea there you have
a military exercise somewhere for philippines. so they're used to smaller countries can dare to challenge china so your strategy is to give enough backing to do neighboring countries to keep china occupied so a dead child there would not have tired to deal with other geopolitical things john a spate of sort of his own institute in china to study social economic developments there for seize a new kind of cold war. on the rise and here's a little bit of what was said to here in full in twenty five minutes. we've heard a lot of talk about polar world but last century it was it's over to the us this tree to be very simple minded about it this century is the us and china. bipolar world is going to be dominated by the bipolar connection of china and the us and
people will make countries will make decisions to calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the u.s. and or china that there will be a bipolar world replace your the u.s. but very different bases. or yes a cold war but it's sort of a cold war with the soviet union on an ideological basis with china. today. these are the images seeing from the
streets of canada. sigrid laboratory. was able to build the world's most sophisticated robots which fortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tim's mission to teach creation why it should care about. this is why you should care. dot com. live from moscow this is our. russia warns it could launch a preemptive strike against the nato led defense shield planned for europe if divisions between them reach over the project reach a critical point now the country's military chiefs have been voicing their concerns at an international conference on military defense here in moscow he said this is
now a follow the event for. well missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now but certainly no secret between the u.s. russia and nato and once again russian officials today reiterated the sentiment that bad deadlock needs to end or else russia is going to take response of action we've heard the phrase preemptive strike this is pretty harsh rhetoric we're hearing from russia they're very serious about their their concerns their national security concerns being taken into consideration by nato and the u.s. we also heard from officials that if some kind of compromise isn't made that they're warning of in fact another arms race so very strong words coming from russia what they're hoping to come out of this today's summit is first of all to prove that these so-called rogue states like iran and south korea which the u.s. and nato say this missile defense system which is well underway in eastern europe in poland romania even as far as turkey that russia has research and is giving
basically officials details on why they believe those two countries certainly don't have the missile capabilities to reach europe so a lot of questions surrounding the goals behind this defense system so close to russia's border and also showing a computer model of why exactly business how system poses a threat to russia's national security in detail this is something moscow has been trying to convince the two of us through dialogue for years now washington continues to stress that the system is not against russia like i said that it's against iran and north korea but russia just isn't convinced oh let's not forget that hot mike that we heard in south korea where obama told medvedev hang in there all he's ready to compromise after the election the first is from the election year a lot of times you can't quote any twenty thousand missiles really understand how little boys here most likely as this two day summit wraps up is baby steps we're
ready for dialogue but how far both sides are willing to compromise is still very unclear. political analyst with the middle of told us that russia is capable of country missile shield is dangerous to send the situation to boiling point. threats to europe very much exaggerate missile threats. of those countries which americans and europeans claim develop a long range missiles it is just not credible europe should not feel vulnerable and the issue is that russia. instead of fewer feels vulnerable russia will defend itself russia is capable of defending itself. but we need to find the narrow window the closing window but still existing window of opportunity for corporative approach it with cool europe illegally binding
assurances on the us. but the format whether it should be agreement treaty or what kind of of those assurances this is an open question. we invite you to head online to our web site r t dog where right now we're literally bringing you the wildest views to take a look for this shocking shot thrill seekers in russia as far as show their head for heights for these dizzying pictures posted online although of course the local police now that health and safety officers as well not too thrilled about that great pictures though don't try that and also the r t the hunting fox the phone hacking scandal plaguing rupert murdoch's news corp sees high level calls for many of his american t.v. broadcasting licenses to be pulled out more on that. commerce world.

trillion euros financing bankrupt banks. because three to send. it is accusing to complain. he says things of states like spain like portugal like ireland like greece and to come to their assistance the european union as a whole requires misanthropy conditions to be imposed upon the populations of those countries so you have to completely different attitudes by the monetary authority here one is towards the bank of bankers who where essential in forging this crisis and they are being treated with love. and then you have the way the states like spain they're being treated europe does not have the means different should be there in order to avert the kind of gets kade of insolvencies of states that we have been experiencing over the last couple of years and just letting you know

deep beneath the rolling english countryside like pockets of gas suitable for energy the trouble is that getting it can be destructive and toxic to those living above the process of fracking is banned in some countries but the british government intends to drill anyway irrespective of public fears or the environmental consequences of a bennett. it triggers earthquakes and could poison water supplies but fracking suggests got the green light in the u.k. a government study says the controversial gas extraction technique is safe despite causing two tremors in the popular coastal resort of blackpool last year environmentalist's fear a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly pollution what it fails to address is the earthquakes and seismicity you know his issues are actually a new very small fraction of the other associated problems with fracking so the
report doesn't really do justice to any other aspect so ultimately of the positive energy climate change to regulating this hydraulic fracturing or fracking extracts methane gas from underground millions of gallons of water and chemicals including hydrochloric acid pumped into a three kilometer deep well that high pressure when the rock cracks gas escapes but so too can deadly toxins and radiation previously locked in the ground this side just sixty kilometers south of london is one of many the government intends to drill and the people who live here have had no say permission is already been given for fracking to start and that's the hole that will be pumped with water at one thousand meters it's not shallower than most other fracking sites which means the risks of tremors a much higher but so too are the chances of toxic chemicals seeping into the water supply and that's the worry for residents who live nearby the fact that fracking
could take place four miles from my home makes me feel very angry very disillusioned very disappointed in our legislators things absolutely exasperated that they can even countenance sanctioning because it is an eco sidle technology it's short term it's short sighted halfway between the capital and the coast bulk i'm surrounded by a network of reservoirs that provide water to much of england's densely populated south. east the fear is the toxic cocktail left by fracking will pollute supplies only a quarter of the carcinogenic chemicals pumped in and actually come out again fracking has already begun america these online videos show what happens if the well casing splits taps flaming after gas leaked into the water system but britain insists it's a cleaner alternative to coal local campaign is far from convinced we really need to be looking at how we're going to move away from fossil fuels and what's
happening at the moment is that the government is diverting its attention and its resources towards methods of energy such as nuclear fracking don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce. the impact fracking is banned in france and bulgaria because of public outrage but in the current corners of england's countryside people's fears are no match for the energy giants either bennett r.-t. sussex. more weather story online sort of following a lot of late news in brief now an apparent protest against presenter sad in syria as a local university has killed at least see hundreds of arrested the latest pictures and verified video you seeing here showing the troops raiding the campus firing at demonstrators while students armed with knives also attacked a rally there's been anti regime protests university almost daily. the trial or rags fugitive vice president has been postponed while his lawyers peel for
a special court to hear the case terry go how should we deny his running death squads targeting government officials security forces and shia pilgrims he's currently seeking refuge in turkey pulls the trial politically motivated here in the next day. on a lighter note is. taking the long way down leaping from a helicopter in a jet powered wing suit you flew over the brazilian capital taking a spin around some of the most famous landmarks and then making his way down safely train to reach speeds of close to three hundred kilometers an hour before finally landing if you stay with those pictures for a little bit because you'll enjoy this on copacabana beach there he goes this almost almost supporter. except. for very old rocket man the business desk don't be offended i'm calling it that the meter maid very mad with tank is there hi there breaking news in the last european central bank keeping rates unchanged as the market reacted to that well actually it was pretty much
expected that the rates would not be changed so had they been then probably we would have seen some kind of dramatic action on the market but so far no europe is looking pretty positive it's adding around half a percent to one percent you just take a look at those figures yes you can see that that spring a bit better than the footsie also this is due to a bit of good news coming from spain and managed to successfully place two would have billion euros worth of bonds on the market so that's the thing. positively meanwhile the european currency is down against the dollar for a second day it's a losing thirty two points there as you can see there that's the p.m.i. dates are for april coming in below expectations meanwhile the ruble it gained positions against both currencies in the previous session well prices were falling there continuing to drop a bit and therefore we are seeing a correction in terms of the ruble it's about. over on the russian market so we're
seeing a bit of a mixed picture and traders have been cautious all this week this is because we're we're between two different sets of long holidays and therefore most not much of a dramatic movement the r.t.s. is a bit down the my sixth is pushed up second to what's moving at gazprom among all energy shares is outstanding today it's actually supposed to be up one and a half percent this red arrows in the wrong on the airflow it is doing overall pretty much in line with the market's up point two percent that's after reporting disappointing results of for the first quarter is now profit nosedive by almost a halt in the first three months of the year and as you can see there dramatic story after nosediving the most in five months now why is this happening basically it's a red no partnership is moving closer to gaining control over the russian army now more on this story of setting up a joint venture with a stake corporation russian technologies for which it will increase its stake in

production is also something russian manufacturers are looking out for shell production has become a focus for the russian gas industry as well as for you kevin that's all right thanks very much. promise to be a tough one but end of the day was an easy. day afternoon sport in fifteen minutes here on r.t. . headlines next to an after minutes away. it
