5:01 am
pm in the russian capital you're watching r t with me marina joshie thank you very much for joining us residents on the syrian lebanese border have been forced from their homes by a series of violent clashes are militia in lebanon apparently used machine guns to attack the syrian army across the frontier and triggering a tough response are reports from the region. here in the golan heights residents have been reporting fire overnight it's coming straight from the syria lebanon border you have to understand that their supporters really close to this village right here syria in fact is right behind me if you can see it a group of several are going to fight men have opened fire from lebanese towards syria and the syrian army has responded that fighting is not heard at the moment but of course the situation in syria continues to be highly unstable despite the efforts by the international community to broker some sort of ceasefire between
5:02 am
syrian government forces and the opposition groups the situation is being intensified by the fact that the various fighting groups in syria continue to receive financial aid as well as shipments of arms coming in from across the border not with just turkey which was reported earlier but also with lebanon. training for war getting ready for battle and possibly there these young recruits are preparing for what their instructors called a campaign to rid syria of tyranny. some of these student to be fighters haven't even held a gun until now. this is the first time i use weapons there was no need for them before the revolution now we carry weapons to get rid of assad. weapons have yet to topple the government of president bashar al assad but they're flowing into the country with ease it's a trend that has some officials worried. provide arms to either side.
5:03 am
for the majority and the risk of unintended consequences porous borders with its neighbors make the flow of arms almost impossible to stop and lebanon's town of is one of the main gate. behind me is the way to one of the illegal border crossings between lebanon and syria weapons fighters and supplies go in to syria while refugees fleeing the violence come out but by no means is. easy journey frequent shelling as well as a large minefield on the syrian side of the border crossings like these a deadly gamble a gamble that lebanese sympathizers of syria's opposition are more than willing to make. this is five thousand dollars and this is thirteen hundred eighteen hundred and two thousand in tripoli r.t. spoke to this arms dealer whose business was booming. people come or contact me every day we have a revolution next door for sure we are with them will help them topple assad told
5:04 am
me doing. the weapons may be easy to come by the harder part is understanding exactly where they go a classified report uncovered in the new york times reveals that many of the arms sent to syrian rebels are ending up in the hands of hardline islamic jihad one of the leaders of the f.s.a. said yeah we admit that we infiltrated the jihadi jihad is a coming. from all over the muslim world but we don't know exactly who they are back in syria both in the training camps and in the battlefield rebels talk of high hopes for a bright future. i hope that there will be free elections that the syrian people will be able to choose the officials they want and that we will win back our rights freedom of expression and political freedom exactly what that freedom looks like may depend on who is getting the guns. lucy caffein of lebanon. syria's northern border with turkey has also become
5:05 am
a regular scene of deadly crossfire in the latest incident ankara fired back in response to a mortar shell which landed in its high todd province kurdish rebels are also causing a headache for turkey at least three turkish soldiers were killed as the militants attacked a military outpost on the country's selfies professor as saying bochy from the middle east technical university says turkey's further in gauge moment in the syrian conflict is involving kurdish rebels it's. no tip of course. crews have know much more among other very room the control of certain parts and that. in the history in the last thirty years the curious have never had a strong p.k. i mean it has never been to the strong. government and turkish army and also get such a launch speed through where the can move together with the other to do screw ups to be had in. northern iraq. as the leaders gather in brussels to tackle the
5:06 am
eurozone crisis and the strikes and demonstrations are gripping the country's worst hit a massive student protest against a slashing of education budget in spain as we followed by a nationwide general strike in greece triggered by a further ten billion euros of cuts well for more on this we can now talk drama roosts a debt crisis researcher at the european university. in florence thanks very much indeed for joining us here on r t first off french president francois hollande has said that the and of the crisis is actually inside that what are the chances that this summit will help the e.u. work out a feasible crisis solution. i think the chances are absolutely new and if there's one thing we've learned over the past couple of years it's that when you're in the u.s. say something about it's crazy as they usually mean the exact opposite when friends are on this ng at the end of the crisis is inside he probably means that spain and
5:07 am
greece are slipping into depression greece by next year with a contract to the economy of the contract roughly twenty percent unemployment stands at twenty five percent that you have regions in spain which are demanding secession that you have actually new fascist forces on the rise in greece and in a move that we haven't seen since the one nine hundred thirty s. so i think really what's happening here is that the press is actually spinning out of control things are getting a lot worse and the summit that we have today in brussels is absolutely is going. on because it completely fails to address any of the structural problems which include most importantly the deadly embrace between the financial sector which is completely insolvent and a series of states which are completely over and while the summit is actually taking place amid the protest at. every now and they are here and there and they are you know they are not showing any signs of abating so they had at the same time
5:08 am
the astaire it continues across europe despite the public anger what can those protests actually achieve i mean can those rallies really change anything. no single revenue a series of rallies or a series of single strikes is not going to solve anything and i don't think that any of the organizers really believe that it will but what's important here is the idea that the people are still around and what's really being was being done here by the greeks is that they're trying to send a message they're trying to send a message to their leaders that they're still around and actually even if you speak to be below ground a lot of people seem to believe that what we're heading towards is is a type of social explosion like we saw in argentina and in two thousand and one two thousand to this crisis what we're seeing is really the the social meltdown leading to increasing anger and i don't think that there is very much time left for readers to continue these type of measures without the people inside and seeing the time
5:09 am
this is enough we're going to rise up and we're not accepting it's. all right well the agenda of the summit as a busy wide as we know what's going to be discussed as a banking union and possibly a full fiscal while. now reports are surfacing that it may be contrary to european law actually so what's the prospect there or is it likely to become a reality and in that case how can benefit the union. it won't become a reality any time soon because what you're seeing really is the germany even though it signed up to this idea the banking union is trying to delay it as much as possible by announcing grand schemes that it knows will never be realized in the short term so i don't really think that we're going to see anything like a banking union or a fiscal union any time soon but the question i think the most important question is even if we saw such a union would it be beneficial to the people of your and i think the question is the answer to that question is no and the reason is precisely because it's so politically impossible to sell this type of union because it would basically mean that the taxpayers of the north will be held liable for the insolvent banking
5:10 am
sector of the south and it seems absolutely impossible to sell such an arrangement to the voters of the north and that's what you will see if such a union would come into existence is that it would be built upon a series of conditions that would be extremely penalizing extreme impunity for the peripheral countries and this would actually be not to a fiscal union or a banking union between austerity union. type measures that we see today and institutionalize the european model ok well you have a situation in europe now i mean we we are seeing sort of a dire situation and fact that countries like italy side. cyprus getting further downgrade the recession a recession deepening in green and spain so how much time do the european leaders actually have to solve all the problems that it's been piling out. of the crisis thought as two things have been the most important thing is that on the one hand
5:11 am
you're you need is don't tend to solve anything in these summits but on the other hand they do display about citi to muddle through this belief about citi to keep on going despite. this by the odds and to keep the deal together the question is for how long we don't know we don't know the exact amount of time that's left but what we do know is that if things continue like this we are staring at another last decade for a generation of european citizens all right karen rose from european universities thanks very much indeed for your thoughts here on our team. and coming up for you later this hour if freedom of speech gets a new meaning and europe iran learns a less censorship from the u.s. satellite providers gap the last two dozen of that state heavey and radio stations that i have for you after a short break. homeland
5:12 am
security now has robot tunas seriously robot fish the drones in the sky spying on you just weren't going to enough effect they've revealed that they're going to be using robotic hummingbirds soon who how cute these things can only see you though above the water now during the one percent or less of your life that you spend swimming homeland security will be keeping you safe since nine eleven we've heard ad nauseum that we need to be kept safe so americans have given up their rights but have things gotten that much safer honestly has any of the stuff are shared in some sort of peaceful utopia no it hasn't the best terrorism prevention would be to not bomb secular regimes in other countries like libya so some fanatical wackos come to power that would help way more than robotic spy fish i hear a lot of people talk about personal responsibility a lot of speeches and yes personal responsibility is

wealthy british style. but i was going to. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into cars a report on our.
5:15 am
welcome back here watching our team live from moscow was memory and at least eleven people have been reported killed as libyan forces shelled bani walid a stronghold of the country's a late leader water khadafi reports suggest there were no direct clashes between the two were ups but fighters from the besieged city later. spotted with mortar rounds attack on bani walid comes amid a report from human rights watch that dozens of khadafi loyalists were massacred following his capture and killing a year ago mobile phone footage filmed by one of the militants shows out a large group of detainees being m.p.'s more photos indicate many of those people were later executed the findings revealing the alleged war crime also imply at the
5:16 am
very same fighters that topple gadhafi still play a major role in libyan politics have failed to investigate the deaths with alice saying it's hardly surprising i think churchill said that the first victim of war is the truth looks at what the government in libya saying what the rebels have sad well they don't indeed even the major powers that the us and britain there were all telling a lie to say the least this is this revelation is not. you know there's no documents but it is not new everybody expected the number i've attended a number of hearings in the human rights council where people who are questioning the number of civilians who were killed by nato but i venue of the day nato and the us and western poetic. themselves involved in removing the regime without knowing to who with whom they are going and that they have not looked at what is the
5:17 am
possibility that after any any attempt to try and say that the revolution won't be led with some sort of a policy with libya this is just not correct the people revolted nato jumped on board and that's the result of it so of course the human rights abuses were done by of the fee by that evolution and by nato. well more on the aftermath of the libyan conflict at r.t. dot com and also there blind justice police in the northern england taser and handcuff a blind man who can barely walk the cops say they saw it his behavior was suspicious and that he's cain was a samurai sword. also on the line hungry for help fifteen million americans signed up for food stamps during the four years of rock obama's term in office we've got the numbers at you dot com. now the european commission has denied ordered a ban on iranian state channel saying that two providers acted independently
5:18 am
previously tehran slammed the e.u. for completely jamming its nine hundred eighty and radio stations which broadcast across europe the ban coincides with a further tightening of sanctions against the country mostly targeting its financial and trade sectors and a filmmaker and media analyst danny schechter thinks the e.u. simply doesn't want to hear a corn jury point of view. i find it very troubling that television channels have been removed from the air suppressing the arends ability to tell its side of the story iran is under attack not only with oil sanctions but financial sanctions there's a whole campaign underway to discredit its proposals in a negotiation that are coming up on the nuclear issue even before iran gets to make those proposals kind of a preemptive strike and now this just a few days after the european union received the nobel peace prize one of its first acts seems to have been to suppress freedom of the press and freedom of speech that
5:19 am
is not very encouraging if you silence one side of that debate and don't even allow its voice to be heard at all clearly it was political you know it taking us one step closer to war and this is what the seems to be about the british did this first through their off common regulator removing press t.v. from the air in england and now the e.u. is followed through with a similar ban. well we discussed iran's relationship with western nations with the epidemic austin long as well as of its nuclear activities are any were as dangerous as the year presented so here's a preview of what's coming up for you next hour. there's a pretty good what iran's capabilities in terms of uranium enrichment are the big question which i don't think anyone can give a highly confident answer to with does iran want of what people refer to as a threshold capability in other words its ability to produce
5:20 am
a nuclear weapon. or do they want an actual deployed weapon. according to u.s. intelligence community and the observers iran just hasn't made that decision in part because they don't need to and they want to get to that threshold capability before they make any decisions about whether to go to go further than that threshold because there's no point making that decision early in fact it might be detected by western intelligence and so you could tip your hand before you get to that threshold so i think that decision has been made. and watching our viewers now take a look at some of the stories from around the world a yemeni official said that it sat in all kata suspects have been killed in the latest u.s. drone attack in the country south this follows a statement by pakistan's interior minister i'm sad that eighty percent of the victims of american air strikes were civilians which contradicts washington's pleas claims massive anti-u.s. sentiment has been growing in the country after
5:21 am
a similar drone attack claimed the lives of twenty four pakistani soldiers in the van last year. there has been mounting around the u.s. embassy in believe us thousands of people rallied against washington's refusal to ask for a diet they are former president he's want to buy the supreme court on charges of causing the deaths of sixty seven protesters during an army crackdown and riots in two thousand and three they asked president had to resign ousted by the unrest and political crisis in the levy. all right it's time now for the business update and the russian investors are all waiting to see what will happen to the team k.b.p.s. shares a marina of course says got all the latest for us exactly what we've been following it for days marina and so far we've known that b.p. has fifty percent stake was up for grabs well now it's the russian partners who said that their fifty percent stake is also up for grabs and roll stuff by the and higher thing and own b.p. and become the world's a biggest producer of oil well for more on this let's cross live to our next call
5:22 am
hello nic i know it's measurable and raining where you are right now or also have hair a quarter spots was certainly that for a reason and that's to find out what people from are all stuff outside so what do you know. will equal citizens going to the most effective for the better weather of growth after playing it well it's very close to its chest we do know that it is likely to be the person to brokering a deal create the world's largest publicly traded oil companies going to be the body out of its fifty percent stake in being paid. for opposed to twenty eight billion dollars in cash and that here maybe people referred about oil company and it. owned by b.p. and fifty percent by a all. for russian toy group that they've been talking to both yeah and the case in the days are the member and of understanding on day their call all paid
5:23 am
be well that well this would likely take place in the future they happen with people that wrote the note have the cash on hand maybe sixty million billion dollars but the boy out of the pay people want to get don't go through that would instantly catapult to the front rank of the world but you. give you an idea to start. producing people one. billion a billion barrels a day. with this little step three point one billion they begin by some of the biggest trade deal. well they may have something as a great actor on along the wall signs are there but i doubt that the weather will be any better there and along the but for now thank you so watch for the latest details they are teasing that all live from the headquarters of rolls left well that's all that's all we have for this this nope that's not what you say without
