right we can now cross live to our south asia correspondent reassure eater priya now what more do we know at this point about the afghan attack and the latest at the center of muslim fury. well as you mentioned it this is the latest of an attack that is a result of a you tube movie that was made in america called the innocence of muslims now a suicide bomber has killed around ten people most of those were foreign or as we know french south african and russian citizens did die in this attack where a car actually slammed into a minivan that was full of aviation workers near kabul airport today this happened
just after protests across kabul as a result of that movie there's been violence around the world as you mentioned as a result of this attack protests happening outside of u.s. embassies in as many as twenty countries actually the u.s. ambassador and three of his colleagues recently died in some of those clashes in libya and we also heard the leader of a who has bulla say calling for a week of protests as a result of this you tube video which he believes has been the strongest attack on islam now a pocket sunit based militant group which has been closely linked to the taliban known as the party of islam has claimed responsibility for this attack one unique thing about this the tap was that it's actually a female suicide bomber this group actually usually doesn't claim responsibilities for attacks like this but they have said that they are responsible for the attack
that happened today as a result of all of the violence that's occurring around the world because of this american base video. thanks very much for the subways our correspondent. now the anti-american rally started exactly a week ago and have rapidly spread to countries and continents including europe were some muslims are calling for a holy war and the flames and fury a german far right group is planning to stage a screening of the film and bring land as artist laura smith reports the unrest could trigger the own storm which has been brewing for years. it started in the middle east. but now the protests against a film muslim say it's an insult to islam have spread and they've arrived in europe the at least a hundred twenty muslims were arrested at a protest in. it's no longer about burning down u.s.
embassies in muslim countries in europe they're calling the holy war. munden so similar see demonstrators outside the u.s. embassy following friday prayers and up to a thousand again on sunday tempers flared and flags were burnt. out of this point out this move scale of european protests compared to days in the middle east but they say local islamists are using this to recruit new members a worrying sign. as a say mainstream extremists who want a better word groups are looking to exploit this in order to encourage men to come and join them and try to get into a habit of protest the habits of extremists and demonstrations and that's always there it's be concerned about and it's already prompted a backlash as u.s. embassies all over europe covered to seeds from angry muslims
a phone right islamophobia group in germany says it wants to place on a screening of the controversial film the innocence of muslims the pro-choice line citizens movement say it's a question of art and freedom of expression. but germany's interior ministry has accused them of recklessly pouring oil on the fire it's a fire the radical muslims in the u.k. are all too happy to fan the flames of the muslims are rising already very stupid even in the west we want to slam the rule of the sharia he will hate the americans or the allies but i think this is a very good turning point for the recent process was sparked by the film but they've taken on a why did i mention that also about foreign policy of america and its allies the fact of matter is the americans feel responsibility was in place they had troops inside the militants lease they've killed most of the occupied land and life
unfortunately if anything so is to blame and started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe lura smith r.t. . smarted our santa mom at the washington d.c. islamic center says no aspect of u.s. policy in the muslim world could prevent advance at this stage from unraveling. this is actually a demonstration of the pent up feelings that the muslims have throughout all of these years harbored against very hostile american policies throughout the muslim world and i think for anyone who is taking a very close look at this i would realize that this is only the tip of the iceberg it should become a very instructive lesson for us diplomats and officials to gauge the depth
and the range of wrath and rage that the muslims have across the world towards the united states policies i don't think we could refer to any one policy that is positive constructive and progressive him in aiding from washington towards anywhere in the muslim realm that includes the whole swath of countries extending from indonesia to morocco there's not one example that the united states can demonstrate that innes far as goodwill towards the muslims. now log on to r.t. dot com for more on the anti-american global rallies including reports that u.s. intelligence has been warned that the countries and us in cairo could face further attacks.

claims that iran vehemently denies and they've also warned that they will retaliate across the region were they to come under attack now here in britain at the same time the former liberal democratic defense minister nick harvey has claimed that he was fired in the recent cabinet reshuffle to avoid a damaging coalition split over a preemptive strike on iran that now he's reported to have told friends that he was fired in that reshuffle to allow that he prime ministers to sign up to an israeli u.s. preemptive strike and his criticisms of israel's actions could prove embarrassing for the coalition will this comes on the back of continued concerns here that these war games and the recent statements are all signs that israel and iran edging ever closer to the brink of war. tara furthur born of the from london what you are to live from moscow coming up in just a few minutes territorial tensions japan seals

nearly two hundred occupy wall street protesters have been arrested in new york as they marked the movement's one year anniversary police wrestled manny peaceful activists to the ground as they flooded manhattan's financial district in the hope of blocking the entrance to the new york stock exchange arches marina board not has more the day began with hundreds of optimus and their supporters storming through lower manhattan some attempting to block the entrance of the new york stock exchange sell out of the day progressed we saw many pasha's between the new york
city police department and up to visit that were walking through lower manhattan chanting we are the ninety nine percent and pioneering a message that began twelve months ago a message that started in new york city and then to you what nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to note on monday when these optimists gather together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very much committed to their fight against income inequality against corporate influence on us politics but what also for me was the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw them i.p.t. pushing optimus to the ground a lot of us feel disillusioned and they've got to put down like we can't there's nowhere to go and there's no recourse that isn't violent you know they are the violent ones they're putting us in the position of violence and they're acting
violently against us. but you know like. as much disruption as we could you know to show people that we're still iran and that the measure is just in the same way you know there is still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away with power you know with the political game such genealogies because you don't see us here every day doesn't mean that we're not here it's actually something that gives me a lot of hope personally and something that makes me feel hopeful for the future to see all these people involved and everybody down here now while some have criticized this man as not going beyond civil disobedience are chanting or yelling still very clear that the frustrations that ignited this movement are still very much alive where it will go from here only time will tell but it will be interesting to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the u.s. presidential election that is just seven weeks away the activists i spoke with throughout
monday say they are committed committed to this movement and will be doing everything they can even if it means to civil disobedience to cause a change in their system that they believe does not have on behalf of ninety nine percent of the country reporting from new york bring up or not party. anti-war activist and u.s. marine veteran jail aram sas the occupy movements message paints a true picture of america's financial inequality. has been a phenomenal success and a shift in the national power station the focus of the national. committee is this country you know there is this solution between the origins of the politicians the watershed and occupy wall street just reminding people that the main the problems that they were protesting about a year ago has gotten worse now just as the needs of the federal reserve has announced. for error. you know so that when there are united states by well
connected interests and baxter's. i had the chance to back that up and that you've got sold out is its own science and accurate picture and as a of the fall of the media on happened in this country and the. insurance companies not happy people in the us will have to a deal with office got bailed out and sold or she got sold out caucasians got bailed out and all the rest of us gives me extreme pleasure to say happy birthday on wall street and i hear in the end it's still going strong and here's another year off i just ascertaining insists. now for me as governor jesse ventura has some advice for occupy activists as he lays out his agenda for a possible presidential run in two thousand and sixteen here's a preview of what's to come next our on our team. they need to continue to stay
apart they need to continue to get arrested they need to continue to be vigilant how do you think we stop the vietnam war had to be the turning point of the vietnam war many people say it was the sixty eight ted offensive that was huge but i don't believe that was the real turning point for america i believe the turning point of the vietnam war was when the four students were killed at camp state i hate to say yep but it's going to require something of that magnitude for the wall street movement to truly have of the impact and get to the psyche of mainstream america. japan's largest corporations have had to put their operations on hold in china due to fears and japanese protests triggered by territorial tete a tetes beijing has slammed tokyo for buying disputed islands from a private owner while the u.s.
entering the fray with plans to build a second anti-missile radar on japanese soil stephen clemence from the atlantic magazine believes countries are now testing the water before making their lows in the future. when we have both sides doing is probing weaknesses of the other china feels that it's due more respect and it's using issues like the islands issue or using. some string issues over japan just having consented to place another ballistic missile defense system is essentially to power squaring off and while this looks like china japan and there are certainly deep historical grievances this is really about china testing the united states and its alliance with japan and to some degree i expect these kind of stream issues to continue for a long time be it's games of brinksmanship it will can. and you to look tense and gents and gents and then you'll have moments of relaxation so what we're seeing today is a snapshot of what we're going to see for the next decade or more they say that that is not designed to essentially confront china but it's also designed to set in
the signal that asia and the asian century and economics and commerce in the region and the growth of china matter and that the united states is not going to withdraw from that region so it's trying to sell the point that its strategic footprint in asia will remain where it is if not grow larger while at the same time you know these wars that we've been having in the middle east will shrink by that but to be just bottom line is we don't know whether the rise of china is going to lead to conflict between the united states and china and its allies or whether it will be managed and it will have both cooperation and confrontation that are essentially managed we don't have a hot war but but this translates just like it used to be in the cold war with the soviets and the united states were often times in the way to achieve peace is the way to achieve the term is to determine success and to a stronger posture and i think that the day but debatable view but that's at least the way japan and china are positioning themselves today paul we have plenty more stories for you energy dot com and here is
