than ten people have died in kabul afghanistan today after a vehicle flams 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 at this suicide incident actually happened a day after there were protests across kabul we've also seen violence increase in pockets on 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 on the leader of hezbollah has asked for

the people of his country to lead 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. and there's also been a shoot protest in thailand around four hundred people gathered outside the u.s. embassy in the capital bangkok and elsewhere in southern asia there's been clashes between muslim protesters and police in indian administered kashmir. all the american rallies are started exactly a week ago and have rapidly spread to countries and continents including europe where some muslims a calling for a holy war amid the flames on fury one german far right group is planning to stage a screening of this film in. as artie's laura smith reports the rest could. 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 for 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 i say mainstream extremists want to a better word groups are looking to exploit this in order to encourage the young
7:05 am
men to come and join them and try and get into the habit of protest a habit of extremists 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 fall right islamophobia group in germany says it wants to post 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 wrongly very stupid even in the west we want to slam the rule of the show. people hate the americans and the hideout lies and i think this is a very good turning point for the process was sparked by the film but they've taken
7:06 am
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. of kill muslims in occupied lands and life unfortunately is only himself to blame and what started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe lura smith r.t. . and mohammed a c n n mom of the washington d.c. islamic center says no aspect of u.s. policy in the muslim world could prevent events at this stage from monrovia 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
7:07 am
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. well you can 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 country's embassy in cairo could face further

7:09 am
countries taking part in a twelve day exercise in the strait of hormuz and 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 that 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 now he's reported to have told friends that he was fired in that reshuffle to allow the deputy prime minister to sign up to an israeli u.s.
7:10 am
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. you're watching are still to come in just a few minutes here on the program but have territorial tensions. missile radar deal with washington dispute. by china and the. d.n.a. profile of a claim to be used by julian assange which makes the case against the wiki leaks that it's. now nearly two hundred occupy wall street protesters have been arrested in new york because they mocked the movement's one year 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
7:11 am
new york stock exchange more on this now with. the day began with hundreds of optimists and their supporters storming through lower manhattan some attempting to walk the entrance of the new york stock exchange 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. months ago a message that started in new york city and then nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to note on monday when these activists gathered together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very much committed to their fight against income inequality against corporate influence on u.s. politics but will also remain what the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw
7:12 am
the n.y.p.d. pushing up to this 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 the position of violence and they're acting violently. against us which. is much disruption as we could you know to show people that we still run and that the measures just in the same way you know they are 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 criticize this movement was not growing beyond civil disobedience are chanting more yelling still very clear that the frustrations that ignited this movement are still very much alive where it
7:13 am
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 add up on behalf of ninety nine percent of the country reporting from new york bring up or not r.t. and a former u.s. 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 a preview now of what's to come out next hour 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 and to me the turning point of
7:14 am
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 that can. state i hate to say it but it's going to require something of that magnitude for the wall street movement to truly have of the impact to the psyche of mainstream america. to just owning a quarter past the hour here in the russian capital this is r t some of japan's biggest companies have had to temporarily shut down operations in china as the heat rises between tokyo and beijing after a territorial tete a tetes beijing is slammed tokyo for buying disputed islands from a private owner while the u.s. is entering the fray with plans to build a second missile system on japanese soil professor from hong kong city university
7:15 am
joseph chang now joins us live here on the program for more on this thing it's so good to see you today as you were listening to the report and as we were discussing here all morning and all afternoon we have this territorial dispute over some small islands and then america jumping in and offering japan a new missile defense system is there any chance that these two issues are linked. in the eyes of the chinese the american society certainly has been exploited be territorial disputes between time. and eat your rating by the it relationship the fear and resentment against china under and has certainly led to close to repeat tarries between the united states and japan and a cooperation in the building of the miso defens mechanism is certainly
7:16 am
one of goals indicators of closer security cooperation or as you say so close to security operations coming into effect in the region there the u.s. defense secretary leon panetta he is all caught up in this now he's visited japan then he goes on to china what's his role in all of this is easy stirring it up or is he playing off both sides to each other. well the united states certainly has been benefiting from the territorial disputes including this one big in china and an over the do you tie island list to send a cool island to deter the knees as well as to retire of the spills i know and some southeast asian countries in the south china sea name need the so-called spread peace is. the concern of china's rar east and be concerned with china's assertiveness indies territorial disputes have
7:17 am
encouraged japan and. countries like the philippines and vietnam to pursue a hedging strategy meaning seeking closer. closer security ties and then unite to space which has been exploiting is kind of minturn to be full is come back to asia so to speak now as you are alluding to a moment ago china emphasizing its prior ownership rights over these islands that are certainly in the middle of the territorial dispute talks about a possible important solve regional dialogue as we talk about that we're now getting reports here at r.t. of three chinese ships entering the waters around the disputed islands is this perhaps a show of force or perhaps something more sinister. it is basically a show that you ought to zone and criticism against the weakness
7:18 am
of the chinese government you know ides of these procter stirs in handling. this. bowl certainly would like to demonstrate on the part of the citizens that the loan to china there is considerable ngo and the power of the chinese people with what they see as a kind of. trade a kind of provocative and under power of the japanese government to could trace these islands from the owner because nice. believe both sides who observe the implicit agreement to maintain the status quo without taking actions to strengthen each job is suffering t. claims now that china now and its upin disengage in this case both the chinese government and its time these people. they have to respond to respond
7:19 am
strongly so to me every threats of kind of rising nationalisms involved countries and unfortunately business nudism is very much a primary targeted against each other in east two countries as you and i have been talking here we've been showing pictures on r.t. the latest pictures out of the region that really show rising tensions when it comes to jump and japan's approach as all these islands that according to ancient maps have legibly belong to china for many many years and here we have america giving japan a missile defense system in the wake of this territorial dispute and yet here we also have china that is the biggest holder of american debt why would america be stirring the stick in the region against china when it holds all of its debt. well you know first place as explained earlier the united states would like to exploit east differences to facilitate its comeback to asia and to
7:20 am
encourage it and to strengthen its security ties with the unite us face it in all of the strengthened and and indeed spilt got to the. chinese ownership of american national debts there is of course an understanding that. authorities in no position to sell the ball on this distress read papers in the market in any massive scale within a very short period of time because this was so don't eat meat to the losses on the power of the chinese. as an investor and not a same time the united states to play the role of some kind of mediator and ice in both sides to calm gotten because the united states certainly does not want to
7:21 am

a lower growth targets and a higher estimate of inflation consumer prices have jumped more than the annual target of around six percent and growth remains pretty sluggish the local economists actually believe despite all of this that russia's central bank was right and boosting the interest rates last week even as the regulators all with the world did just the opposite ours and our bank is going opposite direction of a increase of their interest rate which is unusual because all other god is in degrees and it's a 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 stature and you know them as it used to be said all the different ways. well let's now take a quick look at the equity markets will start over in europe where shares are
