mass protests against the military rulers in egypt and in deadly clashes fueling fears of violence will escalate further ahead of the law not presidential election . campaigning as in france ahead of sunday's presidential runoff vote which many see as decisive for the troubled european union. we are seeing links between these terrorist groups in different parts of the world and so the response has also to be global and traces of international terrorism and circumstance to a long standing russian republic is the victims of that which killed thirteen people and injured dozens more.
hello and welcome to our t twenty four hour news life from moscow and you know ship of our top story now less than three weeks before egypt's landmark presidential election on the country's plunging deeper into turmoil mass protests against the interim military rulers have turned deadly leaving at least one person reported dead and scores injured and this time it was hard line islamists not pro-democracy secular parties who were at the forefront of the protests our correspondent in the region policy and now reports. friday's violence was sparked by a mass rally that was called for by the muslim brotherhood in cairo's central tuffy a square it was the latest in a series of demonstrations by protesters calling on the ruling military to step down and hand over power to civilian rule thousands of people responded to the pool and turned out into the square but things turned agley when they started to make their way to the defense ministry building now the building was secured by barbed
wire and protesters attempted to cut that barbed wire they also threw stones at security forces who responded in turn with will to cannons and tear gas the fighting that ensued lasted several hours eventually the security forces managed to push the protesters back to several side streets but not before resting some two hundred of them the latest violence comes just three weeks before these crucial presidential elections the first of a kind of the post mubarak egypt what we have witnessed ahead of these elections which are slated to happen on the twenty third and twenty fourth of this month is an escalation in tensions and clashes on the ground just those wins day a group of an unknown gunmen attacked a group that was holding a peaceful city in in front of the defense ministry building and in the clashes that ensued at least twenty people were killed and more than one hundred injured and now scaff the supremes council of the armed forces has pledged that it will
hand over power on the twenty fourth of may if one of the thirteen presidential candidates who is running in these elections wins in the first round but increasingly in light of the hippie handedness in which the military has been responding to these recent demonstrations more people are saying it is not in the interest of the military to hand over power that in fact despite what they might be saying they are very reluctant to do so what we do know is that increasingly ordinary egyptians are disappointed him skaf the supreme council of of the armed forces. they say that the commanders and the rulers have been tainted with the same brush they tainted the clothes he will bury regime at the same time they say that the revolution that little more than a year ago held out so much promise increasingly seems to have achieved very little and many egyptians activists say even of the military hands of a power that will do little to help the revolutionary cause on bringing reforms the military wants to crush this revolution every way possible and they're using every
tool they have including the government which is not adhering to any of the demands that have been put forth since the first day of the revolution many believe that even if. this careful transfer of power the civilian government will. that won't change anything because in the end of the day i believe that staff wants to hand power today before to morrow but the thing is that they want to hand over power without being prosecuted for any of the crimes that they have been committed for the they have that they have committed in the past year and a half any outcome that will come out of this presidential process order that even the any election process will only favor scout. and as the voices of islam is growing louder in cairo's tahrir square there are messages also being heard on the streets of germany in the program take a look at a controversial campaign by one of the most radical muslim movements carried out in
the european powerhouse. probably later in the program but before that the yuan peace plan for syria is working despite reports of ceasefire violations so says the office of international envoy kofi annan his spokesman defended an hours mission saying violence has reduced that's despite the u.s. renewing its calls for another approach hinting at the plan's defeat but as for reports now from damascus many syrians hope the upcoming parliamentary road lol so bring some stability to the conflict torn country syria is gearing up for parliamentary elections next week and all across the capital damascus right now you can see these campaign posters that have been put up around the city now this comes as the u.n. observers are in the country touring around different areas tasked with verifying the implementation the u.n. envoy kofi annan peace plan now casey and spokes person has come out and said that he's planned despite reported violations from both sides is back on track now that
statement came against the backdrop pressure we've seen being increased by some of the international countries we've seen the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton was in china this week urging the country to apply further sanctions also in a really the message. voice spokes person was this is a choice and that has not been going on for more than a year is not going to be solved in a day is not going to be solved overnight is going to take time and so now really what you're seeing is a focus on these observers on their task in hand and of situations so. is the parliamentary elections what the outcome of these will be the parliamentary elections have come under a lot of criticism certainly from the opposition for taking place at the wrong time people feel that against the backdrop of
a lack of security and of continuing violence that is simply not the right time to be holding these parliamentary elections but of course we've heard a lot of people calling for this push for democracy in the country to be implemented through the ballot box and not three bullets. russia's republic of dagestan is mourning the victims of twin terror attacks which claimed the lives of thirteen people and injured more than one hundred to a powerful blast rocked a police checkpoint in the capital magical are within twenty minutes of each other what is more if international reports it's a sad fact that the recent attacks on police and authorities in darkest town i'm merely the latest incidence in a long running history of violence in russia's volatile caucasus region for thursday's tragedy has already become the most devastating in months two massive car blasts hit the outskirts of the capital markets and woke up the entire city. at
home watching t.v. then we heard an explosion. well down and broke. around twenty cars were destroyed and the scene was littered with human body parts some even thrown as far as nearby trees and rooftops. de vry was spread for hundreds of meters around. my brother and me ducked down this metal being still here my brother almost died. but they were among the lucky ones as their tech claimed more than a dozen lives policeman rescuers local residents the first explosion took off here when officers from this police post stopped the car for documents checked apparently the driver was a suicide bomber minutes later as many police cars and ambulances teams and emergency crews and fire brigades reach the area the second last the current it was much more powerful you can see the crater it's huge one some reports say the second last had a force of one hundred kilos in t.n.t.
cruel and it claimed the most victims the investigators have already identified the owners of both exploded cars. the double attack one mortar another is a tactic commonly used by international terrorist organizations such as and qaeda. in places like iraq and afghanistan is designed to kill as many people as possible the president of biggest town was away when the blasts happened in a bitter irony he was at a congress in moscow highlighting a counterterrorism complains recent success. the caucasus region has been suffering attacks by islamist terrorists for years this recent one the deadliest militants strike is part of this and go in battle between russia's federal forces and militants and it's unlikely to be the last. hour to report on from in russia's biggest un security accidental it sounded believes the tactics used in their tykes
point to links with international terrorist groups. there are very obvious similarities in the tactics that we are seeing in the north caucasus these days and tactics used by. similar forces in iraq and afghanistan this is a particularly cool type of terrorist attack and it seems now to have reached the north caucasus and this is a sign of contacts that exist between these terrorist groups in different parts of the world works like a franchise organization. it has a template and it encourages groups. to copy it this is a global problem we are seeing links between these terrorist groups in different parts of the world and so the response has also to be global and i welcome very much cooperation. between russia and western countries and
dealing and tackling these issues. without head figure this hour conservatives are taking over the iranian parliament the international community worried that the outcome of the islamic states election could impact on the country's nuclear standoff with the west. school. in the you ask parents teachers and children stage a rally of a devastating budget cuts later find out more about their efforts to teach the authorities and send. the two french presidential candidates have made their last appeals to voters ahead of sunday's runoff poll the debt crisis has been central to their campaign is what francois hollande promising to challenge the new fiscal pact and agreements championed by his rival nicolas sarkozy senior reports one day to go before the french at the polls and make that decisive vote and even the city itself is prepared to ensure that that's president
now it's down to two men incumbent. you have a socialist challenge of law and order to the polls is still actually behind the law but there is still that question mark as to who the voters of but in the pen of the national front and such as france will by rule who are they going to choose up for the site that the french will subtly be choosing between a man or lawyer claims that he will bring back the wall with you to the country also want to go head to head with german chancellor angela merkel to challenge a fiscal pact that he says is bad for us on the other hand you have a man of substance even claims that he is the only one who can prevent us from going down the path but this is the least bad of all the troubled euro zone nations have gone down but there is a group of people who believe that they don't really have a choice when it comes to the program. and therefore the personality of these two men has become just as important as the proposals they put for it boils down to which man is more presidential could take on the ball better now for the beginning
of the campaign there has a big box of these yeahs of the people saying that they don't really see any of the candidates was up to that with a real solution that could bring france out of the quagmire that it's there nevertheless eighty percent of voters have said that they have already made up their minds be it the stuff they see our lawns or neither of the two. and that's today we have no insight into the european debt crisis with moxon stays so lifting the lid on the day to secrets behind the financial headlines that's in the kind of report. only result on friday parliamentary runoff elections in a run put the conservative rivals of president ahmadinejad ahead of his more moderate supporters cements the position of iran's supreme leader has been a who's allies are ready won an outright majority in the parliament after the first
round of voting in march such a political landscape. the country will let the radical clerical elite pull the strings in foreign policy and most importantly to iran's controversial nuclear program and while the international community gauges the possible consequences of this election experts trust the knesset e of settling to be sure before it's too late u.s. and israeli intelligence have both said iran hasn't made the decision to actually build a nuclear weapon we need to keep them there and the way to do that the way to prevent them from making that decision is to actually have serious negotiations were each side can make concessions can reduce the can put caps on the nuclear program and then we can get out of this potential where iran does decide as a deterrent against the military build up you know we need to build a new. and alter a conservative muslim group is now broaden its appeal to europeans although the reach of the sound of the movement one of the most radical branches of islam is
permitted by the freedom of religion there are growing concerns about the message being spread this kind of reports now from. afternoon bruner in central moon and once the words are being ended the redistribution of qur'an continued. three hundred thousand copies in over one hundred across most parts of germany bonus money per year if the bible can be distributed why not the qur'an. there's nothing illegal about handing out the koran the campaign may be provocative since it kicked off during easter but it's not even the timing which could draw so much attention but who is behind the distribution. that the southeast movement is one of the most radical wings of islam known for its truth interpretations of the qur'an and in association with jihad the holy war against nonbelievers and punishments that can include amputation and stoning not exactly
the most constitutional penalties this man sums up the credo don't mention who gives men the right to create laws that right belongs to. one going to the local ses community the campaign's long term goal is to put twenty five million copies of the koran into german forms but it's not clear which interpretation is being used but i. know there are passages about violet's especially against women who are not protected by the law as men would be also about violet said gates the other faithful. india it says here this is only an approximate translation. one of germany's most influential salafist leaders has already been charged in cologne with inciting the public to commit illegal acts. then i do believe these people are dangerous they don't just use lamb which is ok but they're trying to
draw the youth into a specific interpretation which promotes violence. the distribution of religious literature is productive where the constitution of the right to the freedom of opinion and religion as long as it doesn't promote violence or. it's not yet been officially established if that's the case with all the grants being given out by the solidest so for now the only legal option for the german authorities is to stand aside and watch you want this guy or girl in. and a wealth of stories news and comment can also be found at our website dot com and let's check what's online for you right now that. blast almost two hundred fifty people were wounded in this explosion during a political rally in on find out what caused the travel and incident online. and a young man in the world china has been denied entry to a club in russia's you're also his birthday despite of arranging the party advance
discover the details that are to go. the u.k. high court has recently called for the country's internet providers to block access to a massive file sharing website claiming it was distributing called price match hero but the moves backfired with their pirate bay welcoming twelve million more u.k. businesses to its site last week journalist david seaman says governments across the globe need to focus on more serious internet crimes. fight against quote unquote piracy is global we have these powerful but dying entertainment corporations that are putting tremendous pressure on legislators and on law enforcement on our government to crack down on what they see as piracy but piracy
is not the same thing is that when you distribute a piece of music or you know a comedy show or anything like that and other people see it it's not as if the original creator has lost anything in fact there is a lot of evidence that those artists who receive a lot of play over the so-called piracy networks. and doing quite well because they reach millions of people who would not have even known about them otherwise they have these laws in place to attack piracy and i think ten years from now it's going to seem laughable and sad that our government went after pirates when there are legitimate digital crimes happening online there's identity theft there's credit card fraud there are very serious things happening this online harassment all these things are happening and i think that's what our law enforcement agencies should be focused on. making a member of a secret society can grow into and out of a sense of status and power but to can members of these cabals and hold the world
rest until we have an instance on the streets of new york to find out that opinions of people that. do you believe a secret elite is running the world this week let's talk about that there doesn't seem to be any compelling evidence the world has too many. disparate and independently acting things and functions in it for there to be sort of a single. ball of individuals instructing them where to go it just doesn't seem credible to me what about groups like the bills or bridge group or the bohemian club those kinds of things and i think a lot of that is just sort of overblown and just rhetorical but there are groups of people that are powerful men that get together once a year and no one knows what they're talking about but we know they get together what do you think they're talking about. i get together with my friends couples i'm zero nobody knows who are talking about either so i don't really care about what
they talk about but you don't think that they're making decisions that influence your life not at all. you do exists. in a part of the world but not the whole world so it seems there is a lot of different groups with different goals so there's a little element of it but it's not as evil as people might think yes exactly i don't really have an opinion on it i mean if you're rich people or rich people are going to have their own little country club that's fine really bother me but money influences the world's right true but many of these people probably are employing us right. so it seems like most people don't even care whether or not there's a secret elite group of people ruling the world and if they do exist that's probably just the way they like it. there since peace agreements between the u.s. and afghanistan has confirmed washington's commitment to the country even after its soldiers leave but according to his military contributor getting her show on the
road has now left wide open for the permanent presence of u.s. troops in the region. the strategic partnership agreement signed by the u.s. president in afghanistan of the dead of the night is neither strategic nor it could be cool in any sense as any partnership between the united states and afghanistan this bizarre alliance between american democracy and. narco state could qualify for partnership from the washington viewpoint then it means that all other stakeholders in afghan and pakistani security and stability have a lot of homework to do to recalibrate their new air protarchus to the open ended and in fact permanent u.s.
military presence in afghanistan. let's now take a look at some other international news stories in brief for you this hour for claimed the nine eleven mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed and four other men accused of planning their trustees in the u.s. will be charged today i'd go on time of day and there are new rules for trials held at guantanamo including a ban on evidence obtained under torture a previous attempts to charge one hundred will stop three years ago when president barack obama tried to close the prison relatives of some of the victims of nine eleven the military complex to attend the arraignment. a u.s. drone strike has killed at least a night a speck of militants in northwest pakistan the region is thought to be a lifeline of taliban calls border insurgent activity pakistan has previously complained about that target saying they violate its sovereignty the rate of u.s. let's try this has increased since president obama took office of in two thousand and eight. a french court has sentenced an old kiran born scientists to five years
