the european financial gloom is costing it shot over the g eight summit at the u.s. presidential retreat now washington the leaders of the world's top industrialized nations have expressed hope that stricken greece will remain in the euro zone despite widespread fears it could soon put out and he is at camp david. president obama mentioned the informal meeting with the leaders of the eight richest countries this morning where he talked about iran north korea and syria and a whole lot of that the leaders do have to touch a bomb it's becoming very clear that the main focus is the euro crisis whether or not greece will have to exit the euro zone a lot of different types of speculation going on thirteen lee we have heard from officials in brussels that there is some sort of a plan but from the leaders here the european leaders here a lot of new faces monti oman's here what we're hearing is we need to try to keep greece in the euro zone and this is something of course we've been hearing for a long time so the speculation is that the public montra is we need to save greece
we need to keep greece in the euro zone but behind closed doors they're talking about how soon greece might have to be a bit more politics no g eight summit can be complete without them a lot of speculation about not coming even weeks really before the summit when putin made it very clear that he needed the time to form a new cabinet and media going wild with that saying that the reasons range from anything to he's afraid of criticism about protests to just relations between the u.s. and russia are horrible in fact putin and obama spoke on the phone about him not coming they will be meeting in just over a month after g twenty and with that said a lot of experts that we've been speaking to say because the euro crisis is taking over really it doesn't make much sense for putin to be here the russian economy is ok and president. one hundred dollars a bow so the russian features in a strong position so president putin couldn't really contribute anything. to
a solution you could say right you have to solve your problem germany perhaps. to other members of the european union and so on but basically. most of the discussions would be economic. interests of the european union. than obama because obama has realized that if there's a fall out in europe he will affect his chances in america it will affect the u.s. economy. and this of course is an election year obama running for re-election that vote in november as a lot of people talking about what happens here at camp david of course voters in america will be watching carefully and obama knows that very well. and journalist charlie mcgrath who's the founder of the online service want to wait news told me earlier that he thinks greece is just a small part of a much wider problem the problem isn't just greece greece is a relatively small economy the problem is the european debt low period and you know nobody's addressing the real problem which is these banks that it will load up the
debt on all these countries they've issued this debt but everything under the sun is being tried to see these too big to fail institutions from having to realize any kind of a loss and this is why i think over the last couple years we've seen seen things like the european stability mechanism the. one idea during other that brings a little bit of hope to the markets and then fails quickly i think it's real simple you're not going to solve bit by throwing countries further into debt. while leaders settle into the g eight meeting in maryland police in chicago are readying themselves for the upcoming nato summit. occupy chicago denies and demands that nato disband. antedated demonstrators plan a show of strength on the streets in the hope of grabbing the attention of not just those attending but the whole world. that still to come for you but first an exception that's what tens of thousands of protesters in the middle east a calling new arab union plans it comes after saudi arabia said it wants to form an
alliance with bahrain paving the way for an e.u. style of integration independent political analyst dan glazebrook explained to me earlier why he thinks the bahraini government is so supportive of the plan. bahrain's government is enthusiastic for the very reason that the bahraini people are an enthusiastic because it's going to legitimize and systematize the saudi involvement in crushing the bahraini revolution drowning the bahraini revolution in in blood seventy percent of the population sheer and increasingly actually systematically excluded from any positions of influence power effectively disenfranchised always have been in this regime and you know we have to ask why what's in it for saudi arabia and answering that is crucial to remember saudi arabia doesn't have an independent foreign policy never has done its foreign policy like those of the other gulf states is formulated in washington and london so we really have to ask you why the colonial powers britain france and of course now the
us why are they pursuing this course and i think we have to understand this in terms of the preparations which have been underway for several years now for an aerial strike against iran which is still on the on the table the crushing of the bahraini resistance is crucial to the war plans against iran because it was the biggest deterrent to an attack on iran is of course the fear amongst the western elites in israel that actually the sheer population in other countries will rise up . and start to resist that tack on iran so actually what's the crushing of the bahraini revolution is all to do with trying to preemptively destroy any potential resistance to the coming attack on iran. night here most of it will be twenty four hours a day just ahead for you this hour deadly defense. to those guys go out there a little bit. still do you want them sharing their knowledge with comment better
than parking around. that would come in so there's a party of people in new york with the skills of the u.s. navy seals should really be shared with the public. also still to come gardening by the click of a mouse muscovites now can farm without even having to leave their homes by giving commands. the first demonstrations on the other side of the atlantic mean germany's banking capital frankfurt is in lockdown standing in battle lines since early morning thousands of police officers in bulletproof vests entrenched themselves around the city they were there to guard against fresh protests by the country's block banking movement correspondent peter oliver is in frankfurt. these protesters have taken to the streets of frankfurt to voice their displeasure at what they see as unfair all sturdy measures that are being imposed on the eurozone at the moment now right now amongst these people as they march
towards the headquarters of the european central bank it has really been a center full protest against the current crisis in the austerity measures that have been imposed across europe but today on saturday is the largest of the demonstrations as you can see this group behind me around fifteen thousand people we were hearing from the organizers on friday were expected to turn up they could actually be quite a few more here it's quite difficult to see from where i am but it certainly stretches back quite a long way now they're angry that it's the not the people who caused the debt crisis in europe that are having to foot the bill for it they blame the bankers they blame the. the people who risked the money in countries like greece in countries like spain that got people in it got the countries in such trouble saying it's them should face the the brunt of it not people who are going to suffer at the
hand of austerity measures it's worth noting that this is been a very peaceful protest movement but despite that on friday around four hundred people would detained by very heavily equipped police offices that have been century blocking off the whole of central front first the movement itself has called themselves the lucky pipe and sort of occupy is they attempted to block people from reaching the banking sectors or the banking services of europe's largest banking center in frankfurt this is the real hub of not just german banking but of european banking in general and as i say they had quotas of the european central bank located here. he's peter all of them with a human who is at the protests also describe some of the police tactics he saw their actions she says go well beyond the law here is this. movement not allowed any man any more to enter the in the city yet this is something that
this completely new in this country that not only remembers bullies can be seen around the demonstrators but also that individual people are picked out names are listed before. the manifestation starts they are not allowed anymore to and that the city and this is a going down business sort of eurasia enough democratic rights what happened is that they controlled the brocaded distrait and then they controlled everybody and to individual people said. we want to see your passport so then take control. of their database and said no you are not allowed to enter just square because we suppose you will do something illegal. common grief is uniting israelis and palestinians who've lost loved ones to the last in conflict between them it's a unique gathering of suffering parents who want to increase understanding and bring peace closer but their goal is all but out of reach of reports. i was the
head of the dea my son must cute was a very hard day for me i remember grabbing my son trembling all over and running to the bomb shelter. to mothers to testimonies each different but in the end the same my son died in the line of duty death isn't a words it has a form and the form isn't pretty i've seen plenty of it but it takes a lot of courage to stay deaf in the face and then embrace one's enemy and yet for nearly twenty years this is what these israelis and palestinians who've lost family members have been doing they meet on a regular basis talk with one another and show that we conciliation is possible it's meaningful for me that the palestinian we hear about my brother brother will fall to the army and they can listen they can empathize with my story and understand the pain that i went through i had it's brother was serving as a soldier when he was killed on the third day of the first lebanon war he was just
nineteen people were put in a situation of a conflict thing everybody serves his side of the things that they do. this is their duty to they're here through their nation through their belief. ahmed's two uncles were killed by israelis one was shot dead while trying to enter israel the other was force fed while on a hunger strike in prison and his lungs collapsed. from the time i was born i was part of this conflict for me and he's really was a soldier or a settler or an agent of the security services. and he had both heard and i have found their way to the parents circle where half the members of palestinian half israeli but the parents circle is a minority voice the number of israelis and palestinians participating in dialogue has hit a low as many complain they see no point and we conciliation attempts while the peace process is at a stalemate is the legitimacy. of dialogue and coordination between.
is eroding. because the legitimacy of negotiations is if the our governments which are ready to pay the price they will find very big support in their people so there is no. in that number. but there is a new ocean in the in the belief that something like this can happen and this is something that can easily be fixed but the hope lives on in these families who believe that through their pain and through their example change can come policy on television. on a website or to dot com you can find more news from the middle east including and israeli spy butterfly the countries develop the smallest surveillance drone in the world designed to make itself at home in anyone's house. and the pentagon brands

party live here in moscow exactly fifty minutes past the hour now thousands of protesters have flooded chicago ahead of a nato summit on sunday here showdown is expected later with police already on high alert around a dozen activists were arrested on the eve of the gathering three charged with conspiracy to cause terror parties on the started chicken is in chicago. the windy city of chicago turned sunny turned paranoid the hometown of the u.s. president plays host to this year's nato summit nato is a u.s. commanded military alliance responsible for wars and war crimes on a global basis already the most watched city in the u.s.
. as thousands of protesters begin to descend on chicago the city is in security overkill mode you got a bunch of peaceful protesters here they spent millions and millions of dollars for this week alone i mean by absolutely absurd. police have reportedly preemptively raided the homes of protest organizers they battered down the door and made several arrests and we believe these are politically based arrests millions of dollars spent on new police gear trucks ready to function as rolling barricades businesses too are taking no chances what looks like a foreclosed building is actually a hotel in the heart of chicago plywood was put up in order to avoid windows being smashed by demonstrators flooding into town office workers have been advised to dress like protesters in order to not be targeted mustaches. are likely meanwhile activists there to express their outrage at nato is aggressive policies are blocked
off and kept as far away from world leaders as possible we're talking about a peaceful protest and peaceful people but peaceful people dedicated to the cause of peace against a military block the mightiest in human history and they are being portrayed as the force that needs to be protected while officials brace for riots know your rights trainings for demonstrators in their mind you know your brain meetings and street action against the military bloc kick off nato is organization no longer has a mandate to occupy chicago denies and demands that nato disband they have no more purpose they're spending our taxpayer dollars on wars. to buy and destroy and murder civilians all over the world where the ghana stand top of the leaders agenda protesters say it's time to put an end to the warfare at once the only reason we're still in afghanistan is for rare earth minerals and the same reason the only reason we went into iraq was secure oil fields for american oil companies these are purely
economic wars that are sold to the american public purely on propaganda it's garbage the demonstrators want the money pumped into the summit and it security to be spent on real needs there is no peace majority in the united states we oppose war we oppose the war in the world's preeminent war making organization. and we have a human agenda and a humane agenda that has no place for war but fences separating politicians from the people that human agenda is no more than a nuisance to be cordoned off and if they are t. chicago illinois. we'll be bringing you extended coverage of that nato summit in chicago throughout sunday and monday. see thanks. to. the trust it's.
self-defense courses in the u.s. teach people to protect themselves by punching kicking and even killing but should these tactics really be taught to everyone present new york hit the streets of the big apple to gauge opinion. former u.s. navy seal tim larkin teaches people how to kill and maim in the name of self defense how much is too much when it comes to protecting yourself this week let's talk about that do you think it would be ok to kill someone if your life is being threatened. absolutely or has your life ever been threatened. by a person what are the chances that your life will be threatened that you would need to know how to kill. one in ten to the twenty eight you're familiar with to mark and do you support his philosophy i completely support his philosophy he does he's
not anything about trying to kill people he wants to help people be able to protect themselves but he does teach moves that are lethal yes the police teach moves that are lethal as well great but those people are in a job that's defending the public exactly you know what when you're in the military sometimes those guys come out and they're a little bit you know world still do you want them sharing their knowledge with common citizens walking around. no no would come in citizens just people that maybe . are in the job situations where they're in dangerous positions in the world if you think you'd be able to kill someone if someone was threatening your life. it's tough to say until you there right yes but you probably happy you knew those moves then. well you know maybe but then if you heard some or kill someone no mother in what situation you can live you have to
live with the forest of your life and that's the option each person has to make whether or not you think self-defense can go too far the bottom line of the world can be a crazy place whether you choose to prepare yourself for violent or not. now let's have a quick look at some other news making headlines around the world in our world update this high school in southern italy has been rocked by an explosion killing at least one teenage girl and injuring up to a dozen a bomb went off outside the building's entrance when people were arriving for morning classes no one has claimed responsibility for the attack though officials believe the city's maffia could be behind it. tens of thousands of people in taiwan are taking part in the mass rally against the country's government protesters angry over the president's economic policies march through the streets of taipei before gathering in front of the presidential office building the demonstration comes just one day before president is inaugurated for
a second four year term. on the first commercial cargo flight that was expected to deliver supplies to the international space station has been aborted just said before blastoff california based space x. company blamed technical problems with the engine of the dragon rocket and is now we should drop the launch for may twenty second the u.s. government has given space x. a contract to keep the s s stocked with food and equipment john now imagine having your own garden where you can grow fruit and vege without picking up a spade or even leaving a desk well that's a reality for muscovites who can now remotely look after their crops and have the harvest delivered to the doorstep. as the story. this is farmville played by tens of millions in the game you have to plant water and harvest increasingly exotic but ultimately two dimensional and lean edible crops but now anyone can play the game for real the russian entrepreneur has bought
a greenhouse and designed a website. plots of land from the comfort of their homes and offices. if you buy one of the plots you can choose what to grow on it then you can decide when to water it and how to fertilize it and real farmers will do the work for you you can control the lights and how often the ground is plowed we will keep statistics on how well you are doing and you can try to improve the or you can just leave it all to us and just get the harvest delivered when it's done then you will sharpen it of says that his project isn't just about playing for fun but about delivering people healthier forgot make food and it better be after all a six the plot will set you back two hundred dollars a month. one city dwellers to have a connection with the countryside in the future we want every city dweller have their own garden early adopter beat that says he's addicted to watching his plan to
grow through the web cam but i think being able to watch the plot at all times isn't just something of a past time but creates trust between me and the people looking after the farm i know they will do their job properly and not use any pesticides for example all good but truly it's all this not just some sort of post-modern perversion i decided to prove that city dwellers are scared to get their hands dirty by volunteering for an hour in the greenhouse. getting other people to be a god that's ridiculous actually this is quite exhausting much rather just click some buttons on the internet. the spirit of the month sentries hovering in the air of moscow at the moment with the annual viennese bowl taking place in the capital. has dusted down a gland rags and will be bringing a taste of the glitz and glamour glamour
