deadly. suicide bomb attack on foreign. oil all of this in response to the u.s. made movie. plus. the logic that even the west would want to see. flaring tempers in europe as muslims look to exploit a turning point they can use for the. leading the largest ever military exercises off the iranian coast.
new york city police. pushing forcibly arresting nearly two hundred activists. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at the moscow. group claims it's behind a suicide attack on foreigners in kabul which killed at least twelve people and they say it's been staged in revenge for a u.s. made film that ridicules islam and the violence is the latest in the wave of unrest triggered by the movie with demonstrations and attacks on u.s. embassies in over twenty countries worldwide.
more than ten people have died in kabul afghanistan today after a vehicle slammed into a minivan full of aviation workers we know that most of those individuals that work killed in the attack today were foreigners now all of this is happening as a result of an american made movie called the innocence of muslims the group that has taken responsibility for this attack in kabul is known as the party of islam and they're closely tied to the taliban and they believe that there should not be foreign forces in afghanistan if this suicide incident actually happened a day after there were protests across kabul we've also seen violence increase in pakistan tension between police and pakistani citizens as a result of this video has led to at least two people being killed we saw tens of thousands of people protesting in lebanon the leader of hezbollah has asked for the
people of his country to leave a week long protest as a result of this video which he believes has been the strongest attack against islam that he has ever seen. there's also been a huge protest in thailand around four hundred people gathered outside the u.s. embassy in the capital bangkok but what you're seeing right here these are the latest pictures from that. the anti-american rallies started exactly a week ago and of rapidly spread to countries on continents including europe where some muslims according for a holy war but the flames on for year one german far right group is planning to stage a screening of this film in question in berlin as aussies laura smith reports the unrest could trigger the e.u. zone storm which has been brewing for years. it started in the middle east.
but now the protests against a fill muslim say it's an insult to islam have spread and they've arrived in europe . at least one 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. london saw similar scenes demonstrators outside the u.s. embassy following friday prayers and up to a thousand again on sunday tempers flared and flags were burnt. analysts point out the small scale of european protests compared to those 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 young men to
come and join them and try and get into the habit of protest a habit of extremist demonstrations and that's always an area to be concerned about and it's already prompted a backlash as u.s. embassies all over europe come under siege from angry muslims a fall 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 whoring 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 wrongly in response to the rim of the west we want to slam and. people hate the americans are lies and i think this is a very good turning point for the process was sparked by the film but they've taken
on a wider dimension also about foreign policy of america and its allies. the fact of matter is the americans feel responsibility i was thinking place they had troops inside the lease that killed most of the occupied land and if i was a life unfortunately it's only for myself to blame and what started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe laura smith r t. and mohamed al asiri and mom of the washington d.c. islamic center says no aspect of u.s. policy in the muslim world could prevent the events of 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 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 emanating 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 in its far as goodwill towards the muslims or you can log on to dot com for more on the anti american global rallies including reports that u.s. intelligence has been warned the country's embassy in cairo could face further
attacks. this is r.t. a major international modder of naval power has now massed off the iranian coast for what is believed to be the biggest military exercise ever seen in that region the american and british led show of force near the strategic strait of hormuz comes as israel has ramped up its war mongering rhetoric against terror ron and sarah further explained there are further indications that a showdown with iran may really be on the cards. britain is one of twenty five countries taking part in
a twelve day exercise in the strait of hormuz in the largest wargames ever undertaken in the region now this comes as fears grow that israel is preparing to launch a preemptive strike against iran's alleged nuclear weapons program israeli prime minister netanyahu has said that iran's six to seven months away from having ninety percent of what it would need to create an atomic bomb not these are 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 region for to allow the deputy prime minister 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. here with all to you thanks for joining us today still to come in just a few minutes here that of territorial tensions in japan see a new and team radar deal with washington that's a dispute over islands claimed by china simmers in the back. and the approach of congo claimed to be used by julian epstein makes the case against the wiki leaks at a. wealthy british style site. on .

anniversary police wrestled many 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. 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 how hot the day progressed we saw many clashes between the new york city police departments and activists 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 but 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 remains 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 kind of put down like we can't there's nowhere to go and there's no recourse that isn't violent you know they're the violent ones they're putting us in a position of violence and they're acting violently against us which i like a. much disruption as we could you know to show people that we're still ron and that the measure is just the same there you know there's still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away with power you know with the political game such genealogist because you don't see the ceo's 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 all summer criticize this movement 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 in. it's thing to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the u.s. presidential election that is just set in weeks away the activists i spoke with throughout my day say they are committed amid it 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 greene of course i am artsy an antiwar activist on u.s. marine veteran. says the occupy movements message or paints a true picture of the country's financial inequality the occupy wall street movement has been a phenomenal success and
a shift in the national power station and to focus on the financial model the sense committed against this country you know there is this collusion between corporations and politicians the war said and occupy wall street just reminding people that the main problems that they were protesting about a year ago has gotten worse now just as the unease in the federal reserve has announced q four era you know so the closure of the united states by well connected interests and baxter's is still ongoing the chance to back up there was no he got sold now there is a time sides and infection there's a of the problem the meeting on happily this hundred million going on insurance companies now they held out sick people that sold out in a war profiteers got bailed out and soldiers got sold out of these got bailed out and all the rest of us gives me extreme closure to say i have
a birthday on wall street now you're in it still going strong and here's another year are. actually heading into the system. and a former u.s. governor jesse ventura has some advice for people activists as he lays out his agenda for a possible presidential run in two thousand and sixteen is a preview of what's to come this hour. they need to neuter 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 and to me 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 the four students were killed at kent state i hate to say yep but it's going to require something of that magnitude for the wall street movement to truly
album impact or get to the psyche of mainstream america. and you can watch that interview in about fifteen minutes time here on r.t. japan's largest corporations have had to put their operations on hold in china due to fear and the japanese protests triggered by a territorial tax cuts heads has slammed tokyo for buying disputed islands from a private owner of the us is entering the fray with plans to build a second and t. missile system on japanese. stephen clemons from the atlantic magazine believes countries are now testing the waters before making those in the future. what 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 skirmishes 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 skirmishes to continue for a long time basically it's games of brinksmanship it will continue to look tense and tense and dense 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 a 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 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 so we'll 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 oftentimes the way to achieve peace is the way to achieve deter is through deterrence and through a stronger posture and i think that's a day but debatable view but that's at least the way japan and china are positioning themselves today. of course are plenty more stories for you just a click away twenty four seven at daughter called that's a look right now and see what we've got for you on standby at the moment for this hour health over security but on the other controversial full body scanners going from that ports. and how the super rich are getting richer but the only slightly bridge i think or read about why the wealth gap between the world's many and as many of you getting wider full story on our.
the cond on d.-day ever supposed to be the kill of evidence that would join us in the dark now that were found there is no d.n.a. on one of the one of the alleged victims it radha calls into question substantial elements of the case against him is that julian as always said if he is willing to answer the prosecutors and if they are so concerned they ought to be about these allegations that result they ought to be willing to come to london to interview him the fact that the swedes with orders are not willing to come to london i'm have delayed and i'm excused themselves time and time again doesn't indicate that they really take these other geishas seriously because a serious prosecutor would want to interview joining us as quickly as possible by any method terry means and certainly you know his opportunity and he is going this
to be interviewed in london has been on the table for over a year not be taken up for this week's work of. art i promise that's ahead of an hour to auntie's natasha chance guy standing by for us with the. play the passion good to see you today some hearings that are russia's million as shedding some of their wealth would you tell us more well absolutely well some get richer others get not so rich well certainly by their standards but the details in just a minute first our top story moscow on tuesday has signed the papers writing off ninety percent of north korea's eleven billion dollar debt most of which dates back to the soviet times in return law school be able to invest in north korean projects in the energy and health care sector also russia showed an interest in building a gas pipeline to south korea via the north however the multibillion dollar project is unlikely to take off as north and south korea
korea's technically remain out you. but the russian set itself may be feeling the pinch of the downturn that's according to the international monetary fund the organization's latest outlook has a lower growth targets and the higher estimates for russia's inflation consumer prices have jumped to more than the annual target of six percent and growth remains pretty sluggish but local economists believe russia's central bank was right last week when a boosted interest rates while a regulator's old over the world did just the opposite outta no bank is going to open the direction of a increase in their interest rate which is unusual because all other great writers in degrees in the part of the hour and you play should pull this because for our country will be different problems we have are less problems with unemployment there are more problems with. credit policy even
money which was used for void for structure and you know them as it used to be said all the different ways. let's not check out the equity markets will start over in the here up and european shares are trading lower this hour but pretty much in line with the global sentiment the dot says losing around one percent would be a slightly less than down here in moscow equities are also why i think there are losses that's after closing one day in the red on some profit taking on the currency market the euro is retreating two dollars an hour and the bull is continuing to lose value to the current boss can prove russia's main export want to be is a mix it's actually see you see saw trade certainly for. one that's true it's a higher the sour. while the rich get richer as the not so rich get poorer the
latest report by the wealth x. finds russia's millionaires are shedding some of their walls the number of people with more than thirty billion million dollars of assets has declined russia is now number eight on europe's rich list one position lower than last year and over the past year ten percent fewer people how made it into the list itself topping the list in germany its fifteen thousand millionaires the total wealth of more of them q were only in dollars. and wouldn't choose settle for like to tell us about lori i'm sure you were austrian would turn into a boy with toys i have boats and rocket ships and god knows whatever your bad influence thanks natasha. back in a moment here with the headlines and then we're going to step aside and speak to the one and only jesse the body ventura.
