live from moscow are you watching r t is that the week egyptians are waiting to hear who their next president will be the result of the country's first post mubarak presidential elections are being announced just now egypt's interior ministry has reportedly ordered the police to shoot to kill if violence breaks out that's as crowds are gathering in cairo's attack square r.t. the policy is joining us now with the latest hi paula the protesters a must be growing impatient after two postponements all this announcement already that what the police are prepared to use force this is shaping up to be a very dangerous cocktail. and what you can see behind me here square is that there's been a couple tension in the can move but you have a highly is being made to commission it is to to release the electoral results from
last weekend's presidential election any moment now looking to dissuade people riveted by the loudspeakers people outside the square not listening on the car radios faced no traffic no people on the streets the entire country has come to a standstill oh wait a minute. we will be egypt's next president now the police have been deployed effecting ladies high numbers there's growing fears and they could be in clashes and violence once these election results are announced the police have been given the order to shoot if attacked so certainly the winning military is not taking this lightly i've been walking around the square i've also noticed a number of toilets that people have erected you certainly get the sense here that people are in this for the long haul because it's also been chanting god is great god made the revolution thank god will finish the revolution now because here very much supporting one hundred mostly the fear is that if he is not elected in the violence there will be that much greater banks and companies around the square have
closed shop as indeed have businesses hotels here have also folded up their windows for fear of meeting and clashes that could erupt later today there have been a number of ambulances arriving in the sway for the last few hours we did hear one case of a forty two year old man who suffered a heart attack about a story of a woman going into labor here in tough to square the feeling as i say that the whole country is awaiting this very very important announcement this is an historic election that certainly might be announcement brings the often met will be as important if not more important than the news of who is egypt's and next president . but with the run of results to be announced or team what's in store for egypt under either man as leader. will you have to sonar is the one is that after much afic whens in that case he has promised a little and older but he is killed is refuted by the fact that he's very much seen
as a face of the old regime and then you have the muslim brotherhood mohamed morsi now he is currently in stage where little and while this has a kill amongst many egyptians there are certainly a sizeable number of egyptians were frightened of the. they are concerned about mixing religion with politics and also concerned that the futures they had and above are extent she will be tainted and taken away here is a madison ave a which seems unlikely but it's not to pull it out just yet imagine that the election commission might not an ounce of have results in the coming minutes it might say that the violations that both candidates submitted in terms of grievances over how these elections went are so launched tonight that i actually cannot declare anything and near president for egypt and that election money to be held again i think so that it's very important to mention that this country is tense there are as i say real concerns that clashes and violence will follow immediately after this announcement so we're certainly following it closely the
artes of policy live from cairo and. turkey insists its military jet shot down by syrian forces on friday was inspired but as on a training flight the incident adds to the pressure piled up on damascus as nato is now going to look into what happened syria maintains it was just protecting its sovan team on corral which is a member of nato says the plane crossed into syria by mistake just before it was hit but it was in international airspace at the time of the incident the alliance is said to discuss the situation on choosing turkey's request the wreckage of the plane has been located in the mediterranean sea but the two pilots are still unaccounted for meanwhile syrian state t.v. reports the country's a horde of guards have stopped a group of militants trying to cross into syria from turkey patrick henningsen a from enforce dot com says turkey's involvement in the syrian conflict has benefits
nato has agenda. turkey's great both sides trying to play both sides of the fence with regarding syria they've also been giving refuge to free syrian army guerrillas that are western backed. only run across to protect. over the turkish border and they want to go into syria to conduct raids but again the the western agenda i'm afraid to say this the western agenda on syria is already decided certainly turkey is a nato country so the west has been wanting to drag turkey into the civil war under the nato better and certainly turkey would run point salute to by the russian foreign minister sometime last year that turkey would be running point for nato as far as a no fly zone is something they desperately want to do in the west is to establish a no fly zone it will make it like a fish they're shooting fish in a bowl for the west like they didn't libya. russia has faced
a barrage of criticism this week for allegedly shipping arms to syria claims a denied by moscow nora smith looks into the falls who pulls being used to drive the headlines. syria may be on the brink of civil war but it's already the subject of a full blown mediocre war ships on a ships that's been the question for the past week as reports well and simple is on its way to say according to the reports the battleships were laden with oh i'm so in troops and headed to syria it later turned out they would know where nice to react that right now home port of sevastopol empty but in the fog of hul any reports however it accurate has some kind of influence as long as you have so many forces. excited about the your option and that is that things are always just there and they will. get there through this information as usual like they did before the
iraq war and before. intervening in afghanistan in the late seventy's also there was a delay of some information there was one ship it was turned back off the coast of scotland after it was found to be carrying helicopter parts bound to syria q assertions that russia was supplying combat helicopters to president assad we are concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from russia to syria which will escalate the conflict quite dramatically it's an allegation that russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov says is part of a propaganda campaign pushing for which is being discussed these days indeed it was scary for the defense systems and it was carrying three critical of those which have been repaired in russia under the control of the size of the souls of the
soviet helicopters seventy five feet in syria from seoul gives them the fuel cells and there was a concert three feel that they're still to this. well delivered the gift of the symbol the process will fit with the three months or so to speak about something which we just sold to syria and which is being used. you can actually look for it but it wasn't only ships apparently war games were planned to it made me a news agency fawaz reported that iran russia china and syria are planning to conduct joint military exercises in syria next month analysts think the story was planted by syria or iran as a show of strength but the u.s. outlets took it up because it suited them for the u.s. and use the agency to love the story because it matches their narrative you know the. regime and its supporters in iran or russia or china or.
they are the ones who are. the conflict instead of seeking. a story you know a great. news agency and then there's the war of words british prime minister david cameron came out of a meeting with president putin at the recent g twenty summit saying putin no longer wanted president back in power in syria russia's foreign ministry may today no i that was putin's position but was it a case of lost in translation wishful thinking on the prime minister's parts or another attempt to exert pressure on russia in the last fifteen months is being in media attack on syria that the crisis to syrian crisis is seventy percent of media so two percent on the ground so there is a quite a lot of stories every day. like for some odd of stations by just some of those
using you tube and there is no confirmed reports anymore it's said the first count. if war is the truth and all this international rumor mongering and jockeying for position comes at the expense of the syrian people their situation doesn't change regardless of which country won that latest battle of words laura smith r.t. . the syrian stalemate was in focus when president putin and obama met in mexico coming up on our team more on how their leaders agree that the syrians a should be able to choose their own future and must avoid a civil war. and the world's leaders agree boosting growth is key as they hope to escape the fallout from greece. there could dorian ambassador to the u.k. is to hold talks with president rafael correa on the fate of julian assange who's
asked for political asylum in the latin american country the whistleblower took refuge in the country's embassy in london on tuesday after the u.k. supreme court rejected an appeal against his extradition to sweden as launch of years you will be immediately extradited to the u.s. where he could face the death penalty there for it has a story. held under house arrest and oppressed by the government in an effort to silence a pro-democracy message to the public but we're not talking about famous political dissident. she is now free and being warmly welcomed by the british government we're talking about a western exponent of freedom of speech charges of of imported games julian assange that he still spent more than five hundred days under house arrest fighting extradition to sweden and possibly the u.s. now he's desperately hoping ecuador grant him the safe haven see the latest
dramatic twist in the case of julian assange has once again caught the eye of the world's media behind the ecuadorian embassy doors julian astonished takes it away from the hype and his supporters say that this is a dark a tale of a man who has been abandoned by his own country persecuted by the u.s. and failed by the u.k.'s legal system but he's not looking for consular assistance he's looking for political and diplomatic assistance and he's looking for a stroll in government to stand up for a son just fight has been a long one eighteen my. civil eagle wrangling in the result is in the rejection of his supreme court's appeal against extradition to sweden what this was about was once julian assange gets extradited to sweden he's in prison in sweden the next thing that happens is the u.s. assuming there's an indictment lodges an extradition warrant in sweden eventually the u.s. gets his hands on him they stick him in a prison in the united states fears of what might await him across the atlantic may
well have prompted his latest me i think you'll end up actually the united states facing very serious charge probably life in prison if not the death penalty and it will be a stacked kangaroo court against as a are seeing with the bradley manning case united states now has the records rather than we'll of course these on time founded concerns as a long list of u.s. biggest he openly calls not only for songes incarceration even for his death this guy is a traitor treasonous and he has broken every law the united states the guy ought to be and i'm not for the death penalty so i'm not for the death penalty i want to do it illegally shoot the son of a and here's why because of his work with wiki leaks this guy has made some powerful enemies you know the collateral murder video which shows american helicopter gunships shooting reporters the iraq war logs the afghan war diaries all of this cable guy leaks has embarrassed the american british government freedom fighting in the twenty first century is
a whole new ball game new rules you play is an unexpected me even first on his legal team this was a complete surprise so we found out about it on twitter and say the man he revolutionized with and three wiki leaks released groundbreaking stories has in another twist become the story himself and there are many now hate paying that the next big release will be julian assange himself surf city london. we could be activists that clock still keep the aquittal is a songes best option for asylum as a country isn't likely to bow to pressure from washington. we're not so worried about him going to sweden actually that's that's just small business what we're most worried about is him getting extradited to the united states and it's being orchestrated by the department of justice and most of the mainstream media doesn't seem to know about it because no one is allowed in and this is been going on
simultaneously as bradley manning struggle i would say it's a fifty fifty chance either it does or doesn't i pulling for it sounds like this is a very good option so that julian can continue to do the great work he has been doing for journalism ecuador would be a very good choice i think the likelihood of an extradition from ecuador is a lot less than it would be from sweden or the u.k. . well under house arrest in the u.k. julian assange was filming his talk show that as weekly on our team president rafael correa was in fact among his guests catch the next program on choose a at eleven thirty g.m.t. and you can also watch the entire series or so online at r.t. dot com and while you're there check out other stories we have lined up for you today on the roof of a busy mall in canada one taria collapses leaving at least four people injured and
prompting other state of emergency. into classes in england versus the italy in euro twenty twelve and while both teams will be trying to make it to the next round getting their rounds in at the pub that's worrying public health bosses in england who want a thirst for football is only an excuse. both moscow and washington have stressed that syrians are should be able to choose their own future in a democratic process at the summit of the g twenty in mexico president putin and obama agreed that a civil war must be prevented this was the first time the two have met as heads of state they also called on iran to follow un resolutions and cooperate with the international atomic watchdog to prove its nuclear program is entirely peaceful however there seems to be little progress on america's controversial plan to missile shield in europe the leaders are said dialogue will continue but russia has yet to receive guaranteed
a rocket's won't be aimed its way former member of the reagan administration paul craig roberts says american policy makers may not allow obama as much to license as you once. the missile bases that are surrounding russia he doesn't walk around toward. obama . he doesn't really conflict either but he is just wrong move. a government that wants regime change in syria and obama is not exactly in a position to be able to stop that. he will do what he can to get along with couldn't but he still has to represent the agenda of the world agent me and regime change and so the situation i think is
unresolved. the state of euro zone's finances was the main worry for world leaders in mexico this week boosting growth has been named the main goal would be as the fallout from greece could lead to global contagion the leaders of germany front it's italy and spain have agreed for one hundred thirty billion euro package to save the struggling u.s. meanwhile on coalition is asking for an additional two yes just lashing deficit athens is hoping to avoid having for the drastic cuts in pensions which have caused the contest protests political risk consultant john holzman is that whatever greece does that condy called the next storm one less long. haul though this buys us or respite the reality is that this mad hatter's tea party doesn't change anything in the long run greece is going to have to live up to these terms they may get a little bit more time to do so but the terms themselves as the foreign minister of germany made very clear aren't going to change so i think the greek people are in
for a tremendous disappointment the danger on one side and it's a game of chicken the greeks think if we go out it could lead to contagion with much bigger economies and ruin the entire euro zone so they're not going to be mean to us and the germans say the greeks need us more than we need them because without a constant infusion of money we simply can't meet salaries and greece goes back into the middle ages sadly i think both have a point but the point is managing this difference along the way becomes very very difficult but really the drama begins now because once tomorrow's doesn't get the terms you want to remember this new government is going to have only about forty eight forty nine percent of greek support behind it what's going to happen then with surprise a leading demonstrations in the streets growing ever more popular and then they can say you see we were right nothing has changed. coming your way growing evidence that the u.s. and israel are behind a massive hacking attack against iraq begin to jointly develop the malware which collected intelligence and was created to sabotage iran's nuclear program details in just a few months. eighty five people have been
detained in tel aviv overnight after clashes between demonstrators and security forces the riot followed the arrest of a twelve social activist protesters blocked main roads and shattered the windows of banks and started in with the u.s. last summer thousands took to the streets of israel calling for economic and social bonds but not all of the world's have been implemented. paraguayan is facing political isolation with some of its latin american neighbors recalling them best leaders from the country the move comes after president fernando lugo was ousted from power in what he calls a parliamentary croom ninety four vote in the senate saw him dismissed over his handling of violence between farmers and police last week in which seventeen dined newly sworn in leader federico franco has promised to prevent the country from becoming a regional are kept the uk. and in neighboring body via the
army's been deployed to patrol the streets as police continue their strike against low pay in the unrest began on thursday when dozens of officers seasoning media units headquarters close to the presidential palace talks between the government and striking police told that no agreement reached in two thousand and three a revolt over wages led to a gunfight with soldiers that killed nineteen people. the old sectarian fighting in mind has led to over eighty people data over the past month the clashes between buddhists and muslims to set off a refugee crisis and cause many muslims to feel cross the bangladesh border where most have been. back as the legal immigrant very dry and as with stop imperialism dot com believe that there's a why did you political agenda behind the conflict many of the conflicts that we see in myanmar and elsewhere in the world but in particular in that country are the product of a proxy war an economic proxy war that the united states and the western powers are
waging to prevent chinese economic development in myanmar we see the presence of a u.s. funded n.g.o.s that is not to say that everything that they do is negative that everything that they do foment chaos but rather that the presence that they have in the country indicates the presence of u.s. the u.s. government and the u.s. intelligence community in an attempt to block the chinese. unnamed u.s. officials they say that america was responsible for last month's a massive cyber attack on iran the state of the optimal way to flame is said to have been created by america and israel to spy on and seven touch they slam it states nuclear progress guy and she can has the story. that american officials may sound defensive when they talk about cyber attacks as being a major threat to the country's security a weapon of mass disruption you could have a cyber attack that would be as consequential in terms of the economy maybe even in
terms of global us ryan fashions we typically associate with more for the next pearl harbor that we confront could very well be a cyber attack that cripples our our power system certainly our grid acts of terror could come not only from a few extremists in suicide vests but from a few keystrokes on the computer but it turns out the u.s. government itself carries out cyber attacks against other nations the washington post cites officials speaking on condition of anonymity who say entrap aeration full cyber sabotage against iran the u.s. and israel developed the flame virus flame is the most complex computer spying program ever discovered it has the capacity to steal or else or elec twenty documents by now nobody doubts the program was development by a government entity something like this appears to be what they would call state sponsored it sounds like the n.s.a. it is a means by me that now security agency has it does this kind of thing we know they've
done this kind of things you're getting intelligence without having to put someone actually there it's cyber espionage while the flame war was collecting intelligence the stuxnet virus borrowed into iran's nuclear program and created havoc in its uranium enrichment centrifuges the obama administration did not deny the leaks in the new york times that it had teamed up with israel to create stuxnet some fear that the move almost invites retaliation and. you attack for instance iraq's nuclear program you provide the iranians with your weapon your worm which they can that reverse engineer take apart figure out how it works turn it around send your way a leading moscow based security firm which uncovered the flame virus as part of its code is nearly identical to the code finding stuxnet and suggested that the viruses were developed by two teams working in collaboration leaks in the press support
that assessment one official also on condition of anonymity said is just the beginning and the u.s. is preparing the battlefield for another type of covered action we're setting precedent for other nations and that's where the real problem lies because we've been criticizing china for allegedly attacking united states companies and u.s. governments while the same time engaging in this in the same conduct with other countries feel bomb administration has openly confirmed hacking websites but only if alleged al qaeda sympathizers in yemen the u.s. secretary of state described this cyber effort as part of a larger attack on terrorism but many fear the u.s. cyber efforts go well beyond that as u.s. defense authorities go offensive in cyber warfare the pentagon's cyber command has fast tracked the development of the weapons that ministration just announced a one hundred ten million dollar program to solicit proposals from the universities and video game manufacturers to so much hype about cyber war is that some people
that seem to be in the authority about war start talking about technology as if they understand that they're always talking about war because that's their business and so they're trying to rope technology into that and so when we have no control of our technology we have these people that wish to use it for for their ends for war specifically that's a recipe for some pretty scary stuff cyberspace as a whole is now seen by the u.s. military or the bass player and yeah of opportunity you can't really tell the government don't do it whether it's what. i don't want them to tell you but in light of the recent revelations about the who was being engaged in the cyber attacks one might ask what kind of a message that the center of all the government vehemently condemns cyber attacks hackers and all but it self acts like one hell of a hacker i'm going to check out reporting from washington hard to. so we discuss the media coverage of syria and what's next for country torn by conflict but first i'll be back to update you on the headlights.
