everywhere else right there freedom of expression and the fact that 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 banned for years until the barracks hardline parties like the muslim brotherhood and the newly created select this new policy have gained serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament and people here in egypt. has hope. to. choose what will that new egypt look like for groups like al no it means in praising much strict muslim kinds have no problem with. islamic system so we have our culture out of this our culture of content
and out of atlanta and. even egypt so. i think the system and the laws have to come from this culture and this culture means islamic world. many of these fishing for implementing shari'a law in egypt and me publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already signs that change is taking place a lot of people who are currently governmental candidates for president are being very cautious about the statements that they make with the growth of policy everyone is preaching moderate islamists but the same time there's an undercurrent like for instance we're going to change that you can them slightly we're not going to make schools but we're going to preach religion better at schools they matter how subtle the differences may be at the layman it's egypt's eric cheek restraint in letting it each and there is still see what happens right now keep the ferals generations serious. the military council condemned wednesday's
attack so the news conference and referring to his willingness to step down after the presidential election but political activist after midnight believes the latest violence is actually the generals latest attempt to destabilize egypt that 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 the third party the party have been part of the militias the national democratic party and the state security apparatus past twenty years those are all of them very intense criminal records and they've been used instead of formal militias all the army itself so they're doing the dirty work for the military council they've tried already that 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 this is everyone is in the same trench right now against the military council. meantime on the other side of the atlantic spain gearing up for its own austerity fuel protests thousands of these learning past the street set of expected mass demos there bit later as european central bank bosses decide on the euro's future we've got a report coming up. and it can trigger tremors and even poison water supplies but british leaders insist they will plow on with a controversial method to extract underground gas despite the cost to residents around it. america's chief diplomat surging 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 an extremely delicate time though in their relations beijing accuses the u.s. of meddling in its internal affairs after the u.s. embassy briefly sheltered a chinese dissident activist it's also we're a tape of washington's biliteral build safe something chinese experts say is a destructive break from it so. the u.s. strategy is really try to encircle china from ordering from japan to philippines where it now india is so three quarters so the u.s. is calling china an expression. is south china sea there you have
military exercise somewhere for free. so there is two smaller countries here to challenge china so here strategy is to give enough backing to distant neighboring countries to keep china occupied so a dead child there would not have. to deal with other geopolitical felix jordan a spur to sort of his own institute in china to study social economic development for seize a new kind of cold. more on the horizon this is just a clip of what we'll hear next hour. we've heard a lot of talk about multi i call the world but last century it was the soviet union us this injury to be very simple minded about it this century is the us and china that bipolar that world is going to be dominated by a bipolar connection of china and the us and people will make countries will make decisions and calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the
they've escaped this insanity to green room. civilization. but this is their life outside civilization possible. with this russia that could launch a preemptive strike against the nato led defense shield plan for you are up if divisions between them over the project reach a critical point the country's military chiefs have been voicing their concerns at an international conference on missile defense here in moscow is innocent i followed the gathering. 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 two day 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 this missile system poses a threat to russia's national security indeed how 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 let's not forget that hot mike that we heard in south korea where obama told medvedev hang in there i'll be ready to compromise after the election of course it's an election year and a lot of countries across the globe in twenty twelve and officials certainly understand that so what we're going to hear 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. in this an hour they will political analyst martin ole of told us although russia is capable of country nato missile shield it's dangerous to send a situation to boiling point in the first place. 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 europe feels vulnerable russia will defend itself russia is capable of defending itself comma but we need to find the narrow window the closing window but still existing window of opportunity for corporative project with cool europe over legally 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 take a look at our t. dot com our website right now we're literally bringing you the wildest views how's this for some shocking shots think you can call it thrill seekers are going to have a heights in russia's far east showing that they've got what it takes to get that far with these dizzying pictures posted online over of course the police health and safety were happy please do not try this yourself but you see the pictures of our t. dot com also hunting folks the phone hacking scandal plaguing rupert murdoch's news corporation seeing high level calls now for many of his american t.v. broadcasting licenses to be pulled people today on that developing story it's long running plenty more to say about it com.

again deep beneath the rolling english countryside lies pockets of gas suitable for energy but the trouble is 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 away anyway irrespective of public fears or the environmental consequences is artie's i've 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 sphere a smokescreen hiding the far more dangerous side effect of large scale deadly pollution but it fails to address the fact that 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 alternative for department of 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 site 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 has 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 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 to 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 balcombe 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 campaigners far from convinced we really need
to be looking at how we 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 and fracking that don't increase resilience and don't move as a way to reduce. the impact fracking is banned in france and bold garia 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. the world's top news stories now in brief an apparent protest against president decided syria's aleppo universities left at least four dead and seen hundreds arrested and verified video shows troops raided your campus firing at demonstrators while students army knives also attacked the malik the regime protests university almost daily. trying to write fugitive vice president has been
