syria's president decries the who led massacre and blasts the perpetrators as monsters attempts to blame his regime being labeled as part of a plan to engineer military intervention. in syria sent to stage two at the russian e.u. summit european leaders pushing russia to exert more pressure on damascus moscow which is dialogue to resolve the conflict. the us court verdict on egypt's ousted leader hosni mubarak and his aides ignites fierce continuing protests both candidates competing in the presidential election seek to exploit the sentencing.
news and much more twenty four hours a day this is out. syrian leader bashar al assad has flatly rejected any state involvement in the houla slaughter calling it a monstrous massacre the president went on to blame not the opposition but foreign backed fighters in syria he says are spreading chaos griffin says for an intervention may be the ultimate intention. ten days after the terrible massacre in the syrian city of who're the world is still watching to see how this tipping point will shape the crisis while there is still at least some hope of a peaceful solution many analysts believe those hopes are fading fast the american british and french push for military intervention in syria is absolutely enormous we've seen hague of course william hague the british foreign secretary calling for intervention we've seen the new french president saying the same thing
the americans obviously taking the lead the specter of a military solution has returned after the syrian regime was condemned internationally for the death of one hundred eight people half of whom were children before an investigation into who was responsible was even launched they're all saying that their side regime is committing human rights abuses and they repeat this message obsessive like i am confident to predict that indeed it will remain fixed in people's minds and could well be used as a pretext and you don't have to look back too far to see where hasty judgments saw a rush to take up arms but the cause of war and. exactly what happened when i would have a massacre which was the village of russia you have a u.n. inquiry that was severely bullied by the u.s. ambassador it was leaving your observation mission on the ground the claims that it was. innocent civilians by government troops serving it was when presented with.
them and. back then the you just love in government just like the syrian one now condemned militants for the killings in this case blaming the benon separatists from the kosovo liberation army an investigation was launched to find out whether the victims were innocent civilians as the international community claimed or whether the country's army had been battling professional fighters two out of three forensic inquiries proved the. most of the casualties died in combat the third report by an e.u. team has never been made public interesting we know about. when reports of syrian rebels whoever they are. think of being in kosovo liberation army people who were basically agents of mido in the course or. basic of training they were saying they were training in the marsian human rights but definitely the only training that even anybody is how to figure masculine or stage
or war. or what's happening now. but even with hindsight after the nato bombing of yugoslavia ruin the alliances the strikes in libya last year history isn't been prevented from repeating itself again and again. when these disturbing images from the syrian village of whole are made world headlines everybody agreed those who are guilty must be punished but the reaction from the international community has been so sweet and so called donated the risk is that punishment will come before even those who are truly responsible are exposed and that could mean not just a loss of justice but also huge loss of life. r t moscow when the or clark a contributor to britain's guardian newspaper says a major obstacle to kofi annan said peace plan is the near free rein and given that the rebels by their backers. we reach the crucial point of the whole affair now and
i think that the onus must be on the western powers to sort of back down here because you know let's face it the u.s. britain france saudi arabia qatar do not want to succeed it's the syrian government wanted to see the russian china what you know why is the plan working so far in bringing peace because the rebels are still fighting they're still using arms terrorist attacks are taking place in syria and one of the syrian government supposed to do in response seems now evidence has come out of who are that you know last week we were told it was a syrian government now the evidence is not so clear and the only way we can have a peaceful solution to this is if the western powers and countries like qatar saudi arabia rein in the rebels and say to them look stop this and stop supplying them with arms so you know it's not repeated to the people who are backing the violent rebels to rein them in. of thousands of lebanese troops have been deployed to tripoli the nation's second largest city in an effort to stop clashes between pro
and anti assad groups more than a dozen civilians have died there in recent days as a conflict from neighboring syria spills across the border. there. please the growing violence is being fueled by gulf arab states. the regional countries are are interfering in syria this easily becomes a regional conflict and it's devastating for lebanon which has suffered enough already so many years of civil war between nine hundred seventy five and one thousand nine hundred and now you know the violence is happening on a much more extreme level in the north and the lebanese are getting nervous they don't want to have to live through another civil war and it seems like the international and foreign in the gulf states are only encouraging the lebanese to get more involved and to drag it into a civil war and again i think this is more a political agenda than anything else this has to do with the resistance access this has to do with hizbollah this has to do with you and the west determined
attempt to undermine these players in the regional politics because they know how popular they are and they know how powerful they are and it's just going to make the whole region into a complication huge conflict and this could be avoided if the gulf countries step back didn't get involved in lebanon didn't get involved in syria and if the west didn't instigate them to. calls for outside military intervention in syria and unsubstantiated allegations against the assad regime something russia has been vigorously against pushing for dialogue instead of this position is expected to be put to the test at the russian e.u. summit in st petersburg salty's when the script spans. you have syria a country which is balancing on the brink of a civil war with the european leaders and still on able to come to any agreement on the whether or not to do anything definite if in order to try and appease the situation there of course the peace plan produced by kofi annan which is
unfortunately being impeded by the seemingly on seizing the fighting on all sides in the syrian conflict and one of the main things which will be in focus this time is it the issue off the economic crisis in europe you have greece which just threatening to pull out from the eurozone that matter should be decided within weeks so europe is in a very precarious situation there is also the major issue of. europe's a dependency on russia's natural resources this is also an area where russia and the european union countries are playing along together in a sort of a symbiotic relationship that matters russia's accession to w t o y are also expected to be talked about it does seem as if the european and russian leaders are really set on figuring out a way to solve these problems which really have been impeding the progress in international relations and in the europe in the european region for quite some time now. coming out few days from the program economic hardships move north ross's
of students protest against a dramatic hike in tuition fees which would double the cost of the education saying that government should start opening at seven the. u.s. military seeks to return to vietnam as part of its buildup in the asia pacific region what's being seen as a further effort to undermine china. around the clock protests continuing on tahrir square in cairo this fear you want to see as the sentencing of egypt's ousted president hosni mubarak and his associates welcome bonser joins us live from cars to the small. this. is there are votes in the air again. it seems there may well be kerry testers still on the square now very large protests overnight all of this century around this court decision. it's.

now moving on the arab affairs journalist danny says both remaining candidates in egypt's presidential election trying to spin their reaction to spread it their way . they are also people demonstrating against one article i sentence which d.c. is very lenient but he also has to be said there are also commentators and other people who think the key to successful revolution is precisely to do this on the mood of the room and trying to send an execution barak would be a setback to not only egypt's revolution but also to the arab spring in general and surely kind of key to a successful revolution is not to see who will marry the tactics being used in a tree and democracy in egypt but the two candidates who were switched to capitalize on the new. chief said that he was in great danger just. because it means that nobody is among the know this is a man who was

would probably be an act of war. but greece is gearing up for a parliamentary election in less than two weeks time which could mean that thin scrapping its bailout deal with the e.u. and i.m.f. with his future in the euro zone is also under intense scrutiny in an interview coming up next hour american economist and noble laureate and mask and says an end to the e.u.'s financial woes is still nowhere in sight. greece could go on. and so on term depression unemployment could grow to astronomical high so it's already very high but it could it could certainly get higher. things are by no means currently as bad as they as they could get i've seen the the greek situation as a tragedy because so much of what has happened could have been prevented if europe
were truly. an integrated unit. in canada thousands of again taken to the streets of quebec and they just demonstrations following weeks of protests and demands for tuition fee freeze rain didn't deter crowds from marching through the trials two days after talks between student groups and the government went down more than two and a half thousand people have been arrested since protests started in february more than a dozen politicians and in the province. on how american influence and canadian thinking is being blamed. for the canadian province of quebec a region that prides itself on free healthcare and affordable education for its residents students here pay a fixed amount for tuition fees around twenty five hundred dollars a year for all of the colleges and universities that's the lowest rate in north america and the taxpayers pick up the rest but that model might change as their
government looks south they are looking at present borders and seeing what the united states are doing and trying to become closer and closer to what the united states are working on which is more in my opinion is a shame since i don't but having your social programs that harbor for everybody. tens of thousands spilled onto the. when the government said they'd be pushing up to we should fees every year and in five years the students will face education costs almost double what they are paying now. i mean even you know it is a student at a montreal university she works part time at a local ice cream shop she says if the people of keg don't stand their ground now in the future higher education just won't be an option for many if it's too expensive porch adenoma not even think about going to school because it's another world it's part of something that's accessible they're not even think about being
a doctor or if you know it would be you know it's a symbol and what i was saying is that in us it's so expensive so the people the poor people they want to study they have no choice but going to army for that prospect of having to join the military to provide for their education is not the only thing about the u.s. example that scares the quad to fund skyrocketing tuition fees americans carry massive student loan debts on their shoulders that we need to preserve this and become what we've seen growing in the united states right now having a lot of students they are still paying for their university program and when they are seventy years old so we need to make sure that every students will be able to contribute to. our economy region and making sure that they have because i for it actually to start maybe. new and new businesses the rest of north america should be
looking to come back as an example of how to mobilize how student association should function through direct democracy and how they should actually organize and challenge these measures and challenge this debt shackle system. the protests clearly signalled the path that came back is willing or rather not willing to take when we look towards the united states we see a country in which the idea of access is wrapped up. pay and this is what we're seeing the resistance against that access to things like higher education or like health care are in fact access to public goods and that there should be a way of controlling the costs and ensuring that people no matter what their monetary capabilities are able to take advantage of these kinds of programs. what the world knows about the protests here is that they have to do with students and their tuition but for people of the problem it's not so much about the economy but more about their identity and the special welfare model that they're striving to
keep i'm going to check our reporting from montreal canada our team. now a look at some other stories making international headlines this hour the death toll from sunday's plane crash in nigeria is expected to rise to around two hundred one hundred fifty three on board died when the jet plowed into a two story building with more than forty people missing on the rubble reports say the pilots was making frantic calls just before the crash the country's president declared three days of mourning for the victims. up to sixteen suspected taliban fighters are thought to have been killed after a u.s. drone strike targeted a militant compound in northwestern pakistan is the seventh attack in the last two weeks with unconfirmed reports that foreigners are among the dead foreigners increasing tension between pakistan and washington which is ignored demands to stop unmanned strikes. one of two members of a cult stew wanted for involvement in the ninety ninety five nerve gas attack on
subway has been arrested and. was spotted in a city moments is from the capital to living in hiding and meeting the twenty police. is being sought on charges of murder for the attack in which thirteen people were killed and thousands injured one of it remains on the run. we're trying to get latest business update now and declining oil prices investors hearing that. hi carol well first of all we know that the russian economy is mainly based on water the money makes from its oil and gas sector so this is never good really but i'll get to that in just a minute first let's take a look at some international markets will start with the u.s. because that's really what triggered everything on friday and it's continuing to do so it's a day as you can see it was a sea of red the dilution over two percent the nasdaq over two and a half percent and basically investors there were reacting to disappointing jobs that up for the month of may the u.s.
generated sixty nine thousand new jobs which was far less than the expected one hundred sixty five thousand that was also the smallest increase in the year so that's a really sit well with investors there or around the world we saw markets going into the red let's take a look at asia which is the only one trading right now it's a sea of red there as well and basically investors there are only now reacting to this data because they closed before that news came out we can see the nikkei stopping over two percent and similarly with the hang sang and among the worst that there are exporters in japan especially mazda is losing over six percent this hour and also energy firms are in the us because of decline in the oil prices as i said it's not just russia and i'll get to the oil prices in just a second let's take a look at europe it was a similar picture there as well but investors are also reacting to negative. in the region and that resulted in the dad stopping almost three and a half percent there moving on to other news coming out from europe cyprus may now
turn out to be the next country to seek a bailout its banking system is of course exposed to greece but earlier the island reject the suggestions it would need financial aid but now at the end of june cyprus faces a deadline to find almost two billion euros three capital requirements and analysts fear that this cash will have to come from europe speyer out funds. also according to a new report the jobless rate in the euro zone stood at a level percent in april which was the same as in march and that's the highest level since ninety ninety five the new epicenter of european war is which is spain have let's hope jobless rates in the union at twenty four percent the lowest unemployment is an answer out of four percent there and germany bucked the trend with the rate dropping by ten basis points to five point four percent. will continue with markets here in russia it's now an hour ahead of the opening bell
what you're seeing is the picture from friday. yes and the mice and of the trading session in the right track in overseas losses and here as i said decline in oil prices also had a major factor now let's take a look at currencies the euro is still losing against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it sheds have percent of its value for the month of may and it was trading at three year lows against the greenback we have updated figures for that next hour when the russian markets open. prices of the cent they're heading south in fact they're trading at seven month lows currently lightspeed is trading close to eighty two dollars per barrel when it comes to the brant plugs at around ninety seven dollars per barrel and of course all this is having a major effect on energy department called the miss like russia and what it's all consumer run this sounds chief capitol renaissance capital chief economist i should save on chicago and here explain what kind of effect this could have on the russian economy. we should not forget that the budget is based on one hundred fifteen or
pricing or prices already. are going to have fiscal deficit. is going to be smaller probably we're going to see a continuation of the economy but as you know in the first quarter of this year because of the group. in particular when compared to one emerging market economies the economy grew by five percent and even though we do believe that we're going to . i think be able to grow about about. twelve. and of course. on the markets. very thanks for that more for me next hour. special report is coming up in a few minutes as we bring you a look at the american dream from a new perspective that's right to recap our top story.
know we have to pay our bills only have to do it and that's just the american dream and if you want the american dream you have to go by the law so i figure this here's one of the major trails and states. i watch and they run down my property and something about this noise. mean that cockroaches from coming over the wire is protecting the country i'm the kind of guy who doesn't mind it is pants dirty so i come out here you know we're all immigrants as well that we all here are some sorry ass. download the official location. i pod touch from the chops to. life on the. video on demand on the old costs and feeds now with the palm of your.
there hasn't been anything good on t.v. . it is to get the maximum political impact. before source material is what helps keep journalism honest we. we wanted to present. something else. question is that so much about the taxpayers' money mandating it is a chemise mean to a lot of people at area just how we're trying to do is the west when it comes to solve power is the west specifically the u.s. losing its ability to influence others that we sample.
