air defense system the turkish side is also not reporting the rescue and search operation is now in to go in in the area in cooperation with the syrian side and of course the investigation continues but took each president has been equally in turkish prime minister who before that turkey's ready to take all necessary measures designed simply while the details emerged this news has come a time of the crazed violence here in syria and of course the incident with need to country remember fighter jet short here in syria could provoke even further escalation and many analysts say that nato could get involved turkey has been involved in this crisis in syria they've been many reports about the rebels stationed in turkey the rebels training in turkey and what happens and ammunitions being smuggled through the turkish syrian border and just recently we've been hearing about cia offices based in the southern part of the country not far from
the syrian border. coordinating a weapons delivery to the rebels inside syria so all that is is very dangerous the questions as remains open how far turkey is ready to go to topple the regime and president bashar al assad someone they've. criticizing and they've been condemning for like a crackdown against his people for for a long time now. syrian activist and blogger mimi alla harmer says her turkey has been fueling the conflict from the very beginning while the only way to peace is to allow time for reforms to take a fact either one i'm looking at a supporter of the government how i'm going or i am definitely against use formally and it's used trying to create a war in my community so there isn't he in favor of the only streams of military into us and there's an industry in insights you are just like me it's not
a case of being poor gives the government it's a case of defending your your whole night if you will is clearly a. little turkey isn't that in syria for the last fifteen months we have seen turkey utting against syria in very very aggressive waves of funding terrorists within the turkish border one time only and i mean seriously in tripoli and perkins and soon people have been quite frustrated to know i was not actually up today against turkey we firmly want to see peace from stalling our country. understand prince of the nation and the only way to see this happen is for reform to be allowed peacefully without countries like the us qatar saudi arabia are sending money to these
insurgents and basically foreign mercenaries such as libyans and some get used to create destruction and chaos in our country. international peace envoy kofi annan insists iran should be involved in efforts to end the escalating violence in syria but the u.s. and its european allies have objected to tehran's participation in the international conference on the syrian crisis and says it's time to put differences aside and focus on pushing the peace process forward artie's marine important reports. in exactly one month the u.n. supervision mission in syria will expire and at this point the international community is attempting to exhaust all options one of those options according to joint special envoy kofi annan is to form a contact group meeting one that could take place as soon as june thirtieth in geneva joint special envoy kofi annan says that in that contact group it would be
a meeting of the permanent members of the security council members of the european union and also countries that have direct influence on the opposition group in syria as well as the syrian government mr kofi annan says that he has made it clear that he believes that iran should be part of that contact group now the u.s. and its western allies were very much against sitting down at the table would be wrong on having iran play a role in solving the crisis in syria but mr nonce comments are calm as there are fresh reports about the slaughter of some twenty five men near the northern city of aleppo in syria from what has been described by accounts from the opposition and syrian state media there rebels in syria were responsible for this ambush what is quite clear is that the massacres in
cities throughout syria are getting bolder with signs of immense brutality the violence officials have been warning is getting. very dire point. tens of thousands of egyptians have again filled talk we are squared to protest against the military which is accused of trying to hold on to power the results of the presidential runoff will be announced on sunday four days later than expected meanwhile the standoff between the ruling generals and the muslim brotherhood continues with many fearing the military could use the delay to alter the outcome or to supposedly are reports from cairo. as you can hear tensions are soaring here in town here sway away tens of thousands of people have turned out to demonstrate on saturday night they're chanting for the army to step down and indeed as they have been chanting for the past few days they calling for the muslim brotherhood candidate dr mohamed morsi to be named egypt's next president they're also chanting
things like we are strong and that we are preparing for war crimes an ominous threat that comes as the electoral commission says that it will and mounds the official results of last weekend's presidential polls on sunday three pm local time but there is confusion over this because he's hearing from other electoral commission officials that it has not yet been determined when these results in fact will be announced now as you can hear this growing anger in tapir square and this is because many of the people here who are muslim brotherhood supporters are cautious of the fact that they think the electoral commission is delaying and nancy never solves because the army is trying to organize that it's candidate aff much efik be named egypt's mix president and there are growing concerns that if indeed shafiq is announced they will be violence here in egypt the military is worried about those they have warned of potential violence they have warned political leaders on both sides to put a lid on growing on waste but they've also said that despite these protests despite
the growing anger they're not going to back down from we sent a constitutional and traditional changes that they made. author and journalist here miles who is in cairo says the announcement of election results won't tension but could stir things up even further. egypt is a very divided society and it's not going to be a satisfactory outcome whatever opposite whoever is named president the other side is going to be outraged but by the cloud jury side i very able my man sorry cold try mission. number. one to map that possibility. or out that of the it could be a huge response operate squiers it could be a revolution again it could be a revolution spreading to the military which is the worst case scenario for the military rid the country the military of the security and the power of the president last week so. whoever the president is going to be good week. in
history. and coming up later in the program the big match for big drinkers. as the euro two thousand and twelve football championship gathers fans have to cheer on their teams medics in the u.k. are ready to mop up after the match plus. to need more money or less money for. yet because we have all this stuff. does more money mean a happier life from the resident asks people in new york how bad a paycheck they need to be satisfied to. lube. to more news today violence is once again flared up.
these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. trying to corporations rule the day to. wealthy british. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines two kinds of reports. sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then. you hear or see some other part of it and realize that everything is. welcome to the big picture.
of. the mission. cretaceous three. four judges three. arrangements three. three stooges three. old free board video for your media projects free media. tom. welcome back you are with r t now to julian assange where his fate remains in limbo as ecuador weighs in whether to grant him political asylum the latin american country has recalled its ambassador to britain for consultation authorities in the u.k. say they will arrest us for breach of bail the moment he steps out of the ecuadorian embassy where he has been since tuesday the whistleblower has previously spent
eighteen months under house arrest parties only in a minute. capital quito has been looking into his asylum chances. all along science has been claiming that his case was politically motivated denying sex crime allegations which he's wanted for questioning in sweden and it's exactly those claims of political nature of the case that are being parley looked into here in that whether or or there is still no sign that of the season is on the way now president rafael correa says ecuadorian authorities are assessing if there is a real threat to a songes life the latin american leader has stressed that ecuador rejected the penalty so if he finds there are strong grounds to songes fears of being ultimately extradited to the united states he might decide the whistleblower needs protection appearance or police or of one reporter will have to see if there's any death threats against julian assange he will have to analyze his reasons for requesting asylum if he's had to process what you hear in ecuador is
a country that rejects prosecution for ideological motives you know you regulars the sergeant lost his extradition appeal to the u.k. supreme court either we could accept it there is ultimately handed over to sweden his likely to be detained immediately that's what assad said himself in his first public comments since he took refugee in the ecuadorian embassy on tuesday after having spent eighteen months under house arrest without charge that we could be excited there added it's not looming extradition to sweden that worries him the most but his possible removal to the united states where he claims he is the subject of grand jury proceedings he also said that the u.k. and sweden deliberately slowed down his case to allow the u.s. time to drop charges against him for leaking hundreds of thousands of secret u.s. documents while ecuador might hope to be seen as a defender of these are the ideas by accepting the world's number one whistleblower as a political refugee it could be made to suffer for its actions for example it's been suggested that ever the restraint we do night is those and consequently thousands
of jobs my suffer immensely if the latin american country shelters are signs obviously there's a lot more to this than meets the eye. you have to wait and see how does seemingly never ending saga plays out. swedish writer oscar swartz has said it's not a songes fear of prosecution in stockholm that pushed him to take the drastic step of seeking political asylum in this week's issue is that he's afraid of getting them convicted for sex crimes i think that's much too simplistic even if he would be convicted in sweden and he would be immediately released because he has been serving so much time in england so basically off he comes here it might be a couple of weeks in imprisonment and then prosecution maybe but the after that he will be released and then what happens then well sweden has
a record of being very subservient to to the u.s. when they want people or they want crackdowns on certain things in sweden and so on so that is the reason for him being scared of getting to sweden. and of course we always welcome your opinion on the stories we cover today on our website we're asking what you think the future holds for julian assange and here is where your views stand at the moment the majority of us over a third believe a son will safely get to ecuador and run with the leaks from there just under a third however think that the whistleblower will have to spend the rest of his life on the run a little less than a quarter about. will be handed over to the u.s. and sent to guantanamo bay and finally ten percent say he will spend years in the ecuadorian embassy in london but it's not you think at r.t. dot com. while the euro two thousand and twelve football championship is approaching its finals fans are becoming more excited and more drunk this is sunday
season england playing its quarterfinal match and with the country's pubs set to be packed the emergency services are on standby for a surge in those who might need help sobering up. reports. it's. the days that the tickets will be made better placed to catch the game then down the local pub watching football in the pub can be absolutely fantastic it's a great big communal shared experience and i've saved many great games in big hundreds of people and there's not been an ounce of trouble just a fantastic atmosphere and if you can't be there a lot of people feel it's the kind of the next best thing so many things like england knights we were always at danger it could turn ugly but when it's roy is a wonderful why to watch football coming up the game is part of english drinking culture and thousands of books in london's bars and pubs whenever
a match is on. the ballgame or no we're always responsible drinkers you probably think like us if you're so into the game it's a. physical theory. but the stats say something very different is a big problem for us and over all we've lost or five six years we've seen a massive increase in alcohol coles and when they move around sixty thousand incidents every year the london ambulance service operates. very drunk on the regular service the alcohol recovery center normally dispatched on a friday and saturday nights extra services are now being provided. person big football games complete especially. for the euros. every home. and foul behavior from drunken english fans can be more than a little. we have to. have the support from
of. every shift before we go out. because what happens is. most people in the trunk will you are not. he's well. known for that by providing the service at more cost to the taxpayer is the british government scoring a goal by catering for the problem rather than tackling it head on and england's better than expected performance has meant more people out drinking and being a weekend time to get drunk because of the later kick off when you take sport and alcohol and you put them together generally speaking you'll find it doesn't matter whether your team's winning or losing in general people will use that as an excuse to drink and so our advice is to keep an eye on how much you're drinking tournament not just per game but actually let's remember that the tournament lasts for three
weeks so if you're drinking a lot each game actually i've got three week period your liver might have taken a bit of a battering with p.z. fans letting the side down by being such a burden to the whole service many feel it's high time english football supporters say that up so. london. and we've got the world covered for you on our two dot com here's a little of what's online for you right now. crackdown opposition leaders are wounded as police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse anti-government protesters. and might there be such a thing as honest computer political party is trying to legalize the online attacks just so long as you warn your targets before you strike. and a russian finally comes true bears roaming red square but this time it's just part of the green pieces and save the arctic campaign.
now to some other stories making headlines around the world is how are you. protesters have clashed with police in israel where at least six thousand people took to the streets of tel aviv to protest against police brutality around twenty have been reportedly arrested according to local media the rally turned violent when activists tried to push through police lines blocking streets and smashing windows the rally was held after another demonstration against social injustice which solved twelve activists detained. and in the sudan a new wave of anti austerity protests has hit the country's capital khartoum security forces used tear gas and a baton to break up the demonstrations sudan is struggling with an uneasy economic
situation after the south of the country declared independence and took seventy percent of the oil production. part of why is facing political isolation with many of its latin american neighbors withdrawing their ambassadors from the country the move comes after president fernando lugo was ousted from power in an preachment trial on saturday however newly sworn in president frederico franco has promised to respect foreign commitments and to keep his country from becoming a regional outcast. heads of germany france italy and spain have agreed on a one hundred thirty billion euros package to revive growth in the hopes of kickstarting the euro zone's recovery they met in rome ahead of next week's crucial you summit leaders of euro is big for hope to create a united front that could force a consensus in the union italy's prime minister mario monti warned that if the summit fails sovereign borrowing costs in europe will continue to rise and weaker
economies we face it you will. be. now to that eternal question what is the price of happiness with the global economy in turmoil it seems that for many of us financial security is the number one priority right from the heart of the big apple the resident tries to find out now just how much money people there need to be happy. how much of an annual salary would make you feel successful this week let's talk about that first you farai. a euro per year that would be enough for you i think it would be good seventy five thousand here on a grand hundred grand it's forty thousand dollars some preserve the fun really serves five with forty thousand dollars around a bit a hundred fifty thousand per couple that would make you feel like that's what i would say probably. two hundred thousand dollars that's
a lot yeah for this why do people want so much money can it in the united states we think about its consumption but everyone knows that the things that you own own you and that the simple life can make you happy why does no one subscribe to that it's just philosophical it's what we grew up with it's what we were trained with it's what we believe do you think the answer varies from country to country in terms of success or i'm sure does so what do you think on the scale americans fit and. do we need more money or less money more. yet because we have all the stuff especially in america the money is everything america is a money well we like to live you know because we. live well you know schoolteachers are definitely are in more banks why do you think that schoolteachers earn so much less than people who don't necessarily add as much value as you do i think it's because we're just good natured and we are caring and
we don't we're not in it for the money sound yeah so those kinds of jobs are going to get paid less because you're not greedy as much money as i need. to live healthy and with my family. and us to be lucky i think that's that's all i don't need that much money no more than that no more than that do you think if you made more than matt you'd be happier that's though i think you spend what you make so no matter what you. just go spend what you make yes so if you make eighty thousand dollars you're going to spend more i'm going to spend more and i'm getting a bigger house and a bigger boat and everything else to go with it we don't need that stuff. yes i do you cut cap the bottom line is your annual salary might increase but that doesn't mean your happiness will necessarily increase with ads.
