hind it this is the rebels' official political body set up after the revolution in libya started in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya the villagers know. their new there will be a new so you will be. where you are again as. they talk about freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy they just want to bury the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in air strike code until even government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened it killing fifteen people including three kids we have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us now we have to pay a very heavy price of. casualties civilian casualties and also military
casualties i think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen any time soon when you dug around in these symmetries still fresh well made to has already claimed or to your peroration to protect civilians must go on with clashes containing and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the front line many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here they'll also be enough people left to experience it. riginal r t reporting from western leader. well ever since the libyan conflict broke out in february the price of oil is skyrocketed but this thursday but gold surprisingly dropped in its value let's turn
to our business now for the nation katrina is there katrina what is fueling this price drop well bill you're absolutely right we did see a spike there has been a spy for quite a while but this drop that we've seen so drastically for thursday is due to a decision by the i know that's the international energy agency and their decision to release strategic reserves now fifty percent of those reserves are coming from the united states meaning that the demand for oil in western nations is far lower operating more on the story shortly in the bulletin between a thanks very much indeed that circuitry there in business newsroom more from her a little later here she says here in r.t. . they want to tell us is standing by its decision to withdraw a large part of the u.s. garrison from afghanistan iraq bombers rounding up support after announcing the pull out of wood and thirty thousand troops by the end of next year from snow says it's also prepared to pull all of its forces up while the same date the news comes
amid warnings from military commanders that progress against a ton of an is fragile and reversible maybe seventy thousand u.s. troops are set to remain in afghanistan with a complete promise to take place by twenty fourteen your state secretary hillary clinton is going to try to convince congress that obama's strategy is the right approach to winning the war well live to washington where our correspondent got a con is tracking events for a top u.s. military commanders according obama's plan risky actually it was a much smaller drawdown so how is the white house justifying its decisions. while hillary clinton faced a difficult task and that is to justify the billions of u.s. taxpayers dollars on the war that seems to have no end in sight and there was a great deal of skepticism among the senators even amid the announced withdrawal of troops in afghanistan so the secretary of state had to focus on podhoretz accomplished and they are and should did she mention the killing of key al qaeda
members also that as she said the u.s. has broken the taliban momentum although various reports on the ground suggest the insurgency is not really subsiding there and some even say it's growing among the afghans the systematic killing of civilians by nato strikes doesn't help experts say many of those now fighting against the allied forces in afghanistan are not al qaida they are not terrorists they are fighting against who they see as invaders after one of the recent strikes that killed a significant number of civilians including children even the u.s. backed afghan president karzai had to make a harsh face saving statement warning nato that if they continue killing civilians the whole of the afghan population will treat them as occupiers. actually it's not just the afghan people it's also the neighboring pakistan whose assistance is key to the u.s. efforts to u.s. efforts in afghanistan and nonetheless the secretary of state said the pakistanis would rather see the u.s. leave afghanistan take a listen. you know they would be perfectly happy if we picked up and left tomorrow
but what would we get for it and what would they do with it and i think the answers to those two questions mean that the president's approach which is this steadied careful transition while we try to work the the diplomatic and political piece of this which includes pakistan. is exactly the right way to go. many afghans are actually worried that less troops doesn't necessarily mean less bombs on their homes i mean these upcoming trip was across the u.s. as were pointedly stepped up airstrikes including drone strikes in afghanistan is thought to be part of this twenty first century intelligent war strategy as they call it you know when you have no troops on the ground no deaths of u.s. soldiers to justify back at home so it becomes possible to wage a war without having to face all these accountability shoes. to those on the drones
and how it has come into all of this the u.s. is is fighting a war there but with drone attacks no boots on the ground do you think the white house is looking to turn the afghan war around in the same sort of course. well bill analysts say while the of galveston war is becoming kind of old school pakistan on the other hand could be seen as an example of this new kind of warfare in pakistan the u.s. doesn't have to that's on the ground but it's chasing suspected terrorists with drone strikes and very actively doing so it ends up killing mostly civilians in those strikes the pakistanis are furious that their government is allowing the americans killed there to kill their own people they their leaders doing that in exchange for billions of dollars they received from washington some experts say by killing innocent people the u.s. is only going to generate more extremism in the region but that was not one of the issues hillary clinton addressed in her testimony before the senate committee on
foreign relations this thursday going to thanks very much indeed live from the u.s. capital correspondent. and the voice of russia radio host recalled a young told me on r t that president obama is scoring political points ahead of his reelection attempt by making such announcements if you look at the timeline that president barack obama did announce while he was running for the presidency and a bit after he said by this time we had to have a troop drawdown but remember he's also running for reelection so there's an issue of not only the safety of u.s. combat troops there is also the point is being reelected in twenty twelve and the overall issue of money being spent there so there's about three things that he's had to deal with and the nuts and destroyed critics of the obama administration have said that despite how many people that he the president is going to. withdraw all about there will always be there may be a u.s.
presence in afghanistan for decades to come. still to come later this hour in r.t. we talk to a human rights champion joya she claims the u.s. led occupation of a country has thrown the afghan people from the frying pan into the far. removed it brought in power difficult the taliban as dubai this situation getting worse and millions are part of gone by the presence of concern for thousands troops in afghanistan they suffer from injustice insecurity corruption joblessness poor and now afghanistan is the second most corrupt country and of course more than sixty two million dollars carries its own she received from the so-called international community and the name of the construction of afghanistan is schools are funds way though it's to try but most of these money going to the park because these last two are even family off comic guys they himself corruption a star from the palace and to do smaller. some finality in order
to live like two dollars a day while it's they say against women day by day increasing more and more intense stuff thousands of innocent people has been called most often most women and children democracy never come by our completion democracy never come by military invasion democracy never comes by cluster bomb by white phosphorus by muscle car by bombing our wedding party is. that interview coming your way a little later here in r t will still to come the moscow welcomes the star wars. the russian capital gets a bit of hollywood glamour as the moscow international film festival gets underway . the first far right dutch politician here the real there's been acquitted over charges of inciting hate and discrimination he faced five separate counts following a controversial speech he gave attacking islam and comparing it to narcism but the court ruled his comments fell within the boundaries of legitimate political debate
member of the european parliament philip place has told me that the verdict in the villages trial is a victory for the freedom of expression. this is very important not just for here to do this but for freedom of speech in itself i think you cannot have a working democracy a functioning democracy if you don't have freedom of speech and certainly as a member of parliament of illness and everyone else should have the right to speak freely and openly on problems like mass immigration is a miser nation and multiculturalism you know we've always been told that multiculturalism and was going to be great and was going to solve a lot of problems on the contrary it has become a problem in itself and it's very important that everyone should be able to you know to put forward his own solutions to the problem and that it is balanced and free debate people from outside of europe who come to any country in the european union shoed adapt themselves to the local laws the local way of living when in rome
do as a romans do and this is very important multiculturalism you know and in reality does not work in europe we are seeing big problems in major cities major capitals in western europe where we see parallel societies that have emerged you know with so many people who don't feel they have to adapt themselves to the way of living in the country they went to and so this has to change i think we need a much more restrictive immigration and integration policy. let's check out some other international news we have for you today in our world update thirty four people have been killed in iraq eighty two injured in the iraqi capital after three explosions at the local market police say the bombs targeted is shiite mosque there is no immediate claim of responsibility but such mosques are frequently extremists including al qaeda. european union has hit syria with more sanctions aimed at seven individuals and four companies says the measures were brought because of the

and oil prices are a major contributor a factor here they certainly don't want to drive their economies back into recession. by overtightening interest rates in order to deal with inflation so working directly at the root cause of these price increases i think is a very very shrewd move so the first reason is because they're concerned with inflation i think the sec. andries there is also to show the balance of power across the world doesn't lie entirely with opec and i think the opec decision fifteen days ago that was taken not to increase production i think did actually upset many people around the world so partly it's about power it's also about inflation. looking at the equity markets now u.s. markets are trading negatively in response to the prediction of far greater unemployment than was initially anticipated european markets closed trading on a negative note also with the dax and the footsie both well over one point five
