u.s. interests in julian the song takes a sinister turn its contacts are raw and interrogated it turns attempts to fish out information about the wiki leaks founder. moscow and beijing continue to cement their strong ties as day one who didn't visit to china reaffirms their shared stance on a number of international issues. and tens of thousands gather on egypt's tahrir square for what promises to be a million man protest calling for hosni mubarak's execution.
it's eleven pm in moscow this is r t coming to you live from a nice in our way with our top story and with just a week left for julian assange his lawyers to challenge his extradition to sweden it seems u.s. authorities already have the knives out for the australian the wiki leaks founder's interview show here on our t.v. has apparently awaken the interest of the f.b.i. with one of his guests even stopped and interrogated by agents or he's going to camp has more on the story. u.s. officials say there is no indictment against julian assange but apparently the u.s. is going after him after all in their quest for evidence they might hear watching the sunday shows here on our t.v. or else of how would several of the show's guests end up interrogated about the weekly leaks founder in this week's episode features one of them that's jeremy zimmerman an internet freedom advocate who's based in friends at the airport
traveling from the united states to friends he was stopped by self identified f.b.i. agents and questioned about julian assange and the weekly leaks website says mr zimmerman was threatened with arrest and imprisonment when he asked about his rights this all happened after his interview with mr off where they talked cyber security and freedom in the face of ever expanding government surveillance here is a bit of it don't miss the whole thing here and r.t. running all day know that some sites technology enables those also variants of communication then there is do do the other side of the coin is what we do with it we could admit that for which you go to tactical one there are some indeed some legitimate use investigators investigating the bug. but guys and so on may need under the supervision of the judicial authority to be able to use. such tools but the question is where to draw this judicial supervision where to do the control
that the citizens can have over the use of the signal g.'s and this is a policy should so there was jeremy and a bit earlier internet freedom activists mari mccarthy the co-founder of the icelandic digital freedom society he too was stopped at the airport and questioned by u.s. officials about julian assange which he says he was later followed and approached by three u.s. officials in washington late at night and asked to become an informer sounds like something from the moon. movie as far as the number of people detained or arrested shortly before or after the show might be breaking some television record among other guests there was the president of the bahrain center for human rights and i believe our job was beaten up at bahrain's international airport and held in prison for almost a month after recording an interview with julian assange so what can we expect as a few now court has also raised mr songes extradition to sweden his lawyers have
less than two weeks to contest that decision in sweden he's facing quite a scene allegations of sexual assault which reportedly had to do with consensual but unprotected sex but his supporters are saying it's not a songes unprotected sex that they're looking into but rather a way to get him to sweden where it would be arguably easier to hand him over to the united states judging by the reports about people being interrogated one might say that the u.s. is building a case against julian assange as. you watch the latest edition of julian a songes uncompromising interview series in full here on earth in less than half an hour so do stay with us for that. in other news dozens of egyptians are feeling carbo's tucker square right now calling for the execution of ousted president hosni mubarak revolutionary forces are pledging a million strong demonstration egypt's islam is are expected to use the rally to
score points for their presidential candidate who's up against mubarak's last prime minister in the runoff tom barr's reports from cairo. thousands of protesters have surged into tahrir square in the center of cairo they are furious about a court decision about former president hosni mubarak he has been given a life sentence many of them think it should have been harsher and that the trial was a product of the old regime the situation below me which is fraught with the beat of drums and the chants of protestors is even more tense because of the soon to arrive second round of egypt's presidential election and people here are doubling angry because they say there's no real choice between the two candidates one of the candidates is the muslim brotherhood candidate mohamed morsi he has told the protest camp in an attempt to try and gain support from them and mohamed morsi has
said that if he was elected president he would try. back on trial and have been executed many people though are scared that the muslim brotherhood may hijack their revolution and bring in their own religious conservatism the other candidate who is mubarak's last prime minister has warned that the muslim brotherhood would take egypt back to the dark ages many people though do not trust him seeing him as part of the old regime. here were thirty alliance from moscow later this hour we'll look at what the future holds for rallies in russia so parliament is still debating imposing tougher penalties for violations during public gatherings we tell you how the fines might grow if the last time. was painting by numbers we tell you what portion of auctions sold are turns out to be fake and why most electors combative their money choose to keep right on.
going to return to cairo for one of our top stories this hour thousands of people if not tens of thousands out on tucker square let's get the thoughts of mohamed zerilli he's a project manager at the cairo institute for human rights saudi's thanks for being with us mohamed tell us what is your assessment of what's happening in egypt is this a second revolution. well actually this is a normal act after a year in the house of miss caused by. scouts or government so with this is normal actually. what we have now we see this. different doesn't square over egypt is normal if the judgment of the water to have people out of me and his sister. we saw that we think
that this judgment is not fair should move on to sentence by life sentence i mean i would be as well. but the judgment itself didn't. give evidence that. the police committed crimes against the protests against peaceful protests so that means. what the government seen. the same cause which is right through to the school. for the year in the house that the. party always trying to. respond with about the mass and killings of protesters so devoted their judgment towards exactly the same cause of the scene stories that's trying to selling for you on the. side of the criticism of scour the supreme council of the armed forces for audience who might not know there
are a lot of those behind last year's uprising that claimed their revolution has been stolen not only by scouts but also. by by the politics there happened i mean no candidate really represents the revolution how likely is it that their anger could be used ahead of the elections by the islamist candidate perhaps who promises a mubarak retrial this is what the people want to hear isn't it. scuse me i didn't hear you well how well do you think that is the miss candidates are going to do by promising that mubarak i will have a retrial isn't that what the protesters want to hear. when actually also the. presidential elections lead. to people. to go back to the streets and
we have to again because of. we have a lose lose situation right now. because we got a presidential elections first we have. two choices the most of those choices is not what the people. prize for the first choice is how much of. the last prime minister for mubarak and. he's frankly speaking. he respects mubarak and he respects the former president and we have another choice is one hundred morsi who is the head of for freedom and justice party which are related to the muslim brotherhood also those two choices not believe in more closely or human rights standards if we see for the water what are the people going to do when they go to the polls and if you say all of the choices are not what the people want on talk or square right now who
are they going to vote for. or what is the goal of the protests no i'm saying if they have these options which is not what the revolution stood for who will they vote for in the runoff what are their choices not practically but do they have a choice of all of these candidates are not representing the revolution. well we don't have. we don't have huge choices actually and sort of lesion or is a very bad situation they don't have any choices. that this isn't the result of the presidential elections the first round was because of where it was normal because of. stories of staff trying to do too even if you usually chose to have everything that every single was thinking done in egypt was by sort of the usual and caused by that of huge and so it's normal that people we're going to do to find some stability by voting for amateur feet or the muslim brothers are
voting for or for mohamed morsi but actually for now we don't have a real choice and this is this is a problem that we are in because we started the wrong actually start was wrong from the very beginning because of from the very beginning there was a commission two two two four presidential bid committee and two to two were to have a constitution first and then that actions but. choose to have various. parliamentarians who actions and. the problem is that we need to buy islamist power and don't even want to cheer the constitutional. right it was. for political powers in egypt. as ari we're going to have a game to rival you their project manager at cairo institute for human rights studies thank you very much for your analysis this hour that's all we have time for
me right. now it's a partnership widely seen as a counterbalance to the influence of the u.s. president vladimir putin's high profile visit to china is expected to foster already strong ties that's aside from obvious economic interests the neighbors also see eye to eye on major international disputes such as the syrian conflict also sharing concerns over u.s. expansion in the asia pacific like syria says he is in beijing for us. it is the first state visit to britain as russia's president to china something that each president of any country can do only once during his presidential term definitely many experts have already been saying that the fact that was even approaching chose china as one of his first destinations to becoming russia's president for the third time means that russia and china will continue to be very strong strategic partners the main focus among all the media and everyone here was at the for invective the
relations between beijing and moscow and certainly the two leaders have reconfirmed that they have unified stances on most of the issues they touched on the growing concerns in the asian pacific region namely certainly the growing military presence of the united states here and that's where a lot even if we don't know who said that they have a unified stance as well as mentioning the events in north africa and in the middle east basically we do understand as well that russia and china have a unified position on the syrian conflict and that is not going to change according to both leaders of this very close cooperation between china and russia has certainly gaining some concerns in the west in the united states particularly because china is growing stronger every year both economically and militarily so definitely this is raising some concerns but now we have confirmed from the both leaders that this cooperation will not die down and will only increase and always
strengthen in the years to come we have more for you next hour about china when a former i.m.f. economist tells us how measuring monetary muscle is helping him punch its weight against the u.s. . if the united states gets to so much economic trouble right that it will have to borrow money and if china has the money to why the u.s. china might say well we don't like your military presence in the pacific naval presence and you have to get rid of them it cannot. power can always be leveraged for political and foreign policy objectives. the u.s. and its allies are preparing for syria's transition of power the white house says president of handing control to the opposition will help bring an end to the fifteen months of bloodshed but a number of western and arab states have long been pushing for regime change but also has maintained his nation's real war comes from outside meanwhile reports have
been most suggesting britain is planning to set up camps in syria where troops and agents will help the rebels fight against the government middle east expert eric only believes foreign powers are largely responsible for the country's dire situation when the americans vassal state slow growth some talk about transition what they are effectively mean is regime change that is what they did in libya with dire consequences as we can see in their country to do it in syria the plan to bring both sides to the table and have a negotiated settlement is obviously the best way to move forward but the united states and britain and their other allies have absolutely no pressure on the other side to come to them negotiate a negotiating table and start
a process of daws so it would appear to me that what we now have is an end game situation where the united states has decided to remove this regime and who use everything you know spider do so. and don't forget all our coverage is available for you at our dot com here's a look at what else you can discover while you're there in ten years for tweeting a kuwaiti man thrown behind bars for insulting the prophet muhammad on twitter. exclusively for you at r.t. dot com why a random school drug screening from the u.s. our dangerous check out ten kirby's why you should care webcam. sigrid laboratory. was able to build its most sophisticated robot which really doesn't give a darn about anything tunes mission to teach creation why it should care about

blogosphere now those who are in favor of these changes to the law were talking really about the ruling united russia party here defended by saying it brings russia into line with the rest of europe though if we look elsewhere and what type of fines and what type of sentences can come into into play take from for example where if you take part in all through a demonstration of protest and you wear a mosque or anything that would cover your face that hot try and hide your identity you could face a fine of forty five thousand euro close up this three years in prison in switzerland that fine could go as high as seventy five thousand euro the reason the united russia has deemed that these changes to the old need to be made comes off the back of the way the county government protests that we've seen really since december of last year when the palm entry elections they were held note for the majority of these protests of being peaceful of says however in spring of this year we sold them to a nasty and we had seen some protesters attacking police offices
a number of police officers were injured during those demonstrations and lawmakers saying that these changes need to be made in order to make sure that russia's cities in the streets of russia's cities are safe and that those trying to split off is trying to keep those streets safe kept safe themselves. it's twenty minutes past. hour a look at some world headlines for you is second most senior militant has been killed in a drone strike in pakistan's northwest tribal region that's according to american officials a million dollars bounty was placed on. a high profile al qaeda terrorist who wants escaped from a top security u.s. military prison to pakistan earlier condemn such drone attacks declaring them against international law and the country's sovereignty. there have been scuffles in ukraine over a new of language law which if passed will officially allow russian to be used
alongside ukrainian in some regions around nine thousand people both for and against the proposal rallied outside parliament but the bill won an initial majority its opponents are mainly nationalists keen to keep ukrainian as the only official language supporters are mainly russian speaking citizens make up around half of ukraine's population. queen elizabeth has rounded off her diamond jubilee the celebrations by broadcasting a message of thanks hundreds of thousands of cheering people gathered in front of buckingham palace those the royal family appeared on the balcony and watched the military fly past it followed a carriage procession and a special thanksgiving service in st paul's cathedral the queen's without her husband the duke of edinburgh after he was admitted to hospital on monday. but they say a picture is worth a thousand words and in the art world you're also talking millions of dollars to pay for said treasures however experts now claim roughly half of all work sold
today are fake arches laura smith caught up with one russian collector who's happy to say are the forgeries he was tricked into buying. very important works of art go under the hammer every day in london's west end but how can our lovers be sure of what they're buying according to scotland yard a staggering fifty percent of all art sold is fake what we're looking at these days is a very considerable increase in faking of twentieth century art i've seen a number of provincial auction houses and and of those. so fakes. are considerable scale and i think it's something that we we will accept a lot of forgeries are also sold on auction websites but it's not just internet buyers who can be taken in by the forward just brush the latest auction house to
come into the spotlight with christie's which is involved in a high court battle with russian tycoon victim backs oberg he paid more than two and a half million dollars for a painting he thought was by prominent russian artist buddies cause still of the earth only to find out later that it appears to have been signed for several years after. the case will go on for nineteen days and according to experts will probably cost more than the painting itself which is one reason why more of these claims don't go to court but another buyer of russian art when confronted with lemons made lemonade eager to see a course discovered his art collection meant to fund his retirement was mostly forgeries now he's displaying the paintings as a warning to others most of us didn't use ruby when we had gone dark of our money where ashamed to talk of it i'm going to be the first who says don't be ashamed of showing us because we believe you people who no one would doubt now the time has
passed and we realize we made a mistake and it's important to publicize the mistake because the quantity of russian figs is such that. discredits national art your worship your coffee showing each of his pictures alongside two different city of tickets one attesting the painting is genuine and one proving it sometimes they're even signed by the same person and his collection is just the tip of the iceberg i think there's going to be a lot more of this recently quite high profile prosecutions in the u.k. and germany of so-called master forgeries and what those cases of revealed is that some excellent fakes hundreds of excellent fakes have been placed on the market and maybe that's just a very small part of it how croft's message is clear it doesn't matter whether you're buying off the internet or at a reputable auction house buyer beware norris myth r.t.
