this is all see coming here live from moscow house and walked into the program latin america denouncing as outrageous the use decision to ground a jet carrying the believe in president if you're a cedars are equating back to kidnapping almost the entire continent rallying to believe is cause the president's plane was reportedly even searched over rumors that whistleblower edward snowden was aboard. reports now on the. things are looking grim for european diplomats working in latin america some of them could be expelled following this incident with the bolivian president steps like these will be more or less clear after the countries the organization which unites most of latin american states will gather for an emergency summit on thursday and probably they will unlikeness on their next steps but clearly after ever more honest
7:02 am
suffered this nightmare like through europe the reaction coming from latin american countries has been more or less. there's been so much solidarity in their criticism about this whole situation let me quote several of the latin american leaders to you would understand the magnitude of their anger now the president of argentina cristina kirchner said that this was the humiliation of the entire south american continent president of venezuela nicolas maduro described as dangerous disproportionate and unacceptable aggression a joint statement coming from the colombian government said that this airspace denial was an act of aggression and last but not least the u.s. airspace denial was deemed as fascist by the vanessa well and foreign minister clearly the most offended side here the bolivians and their reaction was that they compared the foreign minister of the country compared this incident to a kidnapping attempt of the bolivian president let's listen to what some of the bolivian diplomats had to say on this matter. is an unprecedented situation this
7:03 am
goes against international conventions and treaties this goes against international law and groups that have been established over a long period of time shows disrespect for other countries independence by. the countries involved in hijacking president morales is clean and making a mistake they think that others steal attack in the territories wage wars impose embargoed and go back on their room would just like they do that the current policy of the usa and their allies in nato. who aims it ensuring the rule security at the expense of somebody else's so a lion's share of criticism coming from latin america is directed towards the united states reportedly have had a hand in this incident in fact the united states never made secret they contacted the european countries on snowden's possible passing through their territory the u.s. spokes person of the us state department said that these contacts were in fact made
7:04 am
so this is the one of the reasons why the latin americans have been angry towards the united states but also europe has received its portion of the stick as well in particular some calls coming from latin american officials as well that despite that europe has been criticizing what edward snowden revealed still that acted as a colony of washington so definitely this story is not over we are anticipating this summit on thursday with probably more strong rhetoric coming from here and until snowden reportedly stays at moscow's sheremetyevo airport we will definitely be seeing more crazy twists and turns to this hollywood style saga the united states has admitted has contacted a range of nations in passing on the dangers of allowing edward snowden to pounds three and other colander attorney and author says they use actions show clearly why its priorities lay. despite the fact that the united states basically is
7:05 am
demeaning those european nations and violating their own rights and treating them as second class citizens at the same time they do share these collective military and economic interests and so i think that a lot of the response mainly from some of these european countries heads of states condemning these actions of the united states and calling for further investigation was mainly merely to satisfy their their constituents and their people and it's not something that they're really going to follow up and we see that played out in a case of a more dollars airplane i mean these same european countries that were just criticizing the united states for this espionage program they were willing to act on u.s. instructions to violate the rights of this latin american leader so i think we see clearly there the double standard and hypocrisy and what is being said virtually out of the governments of the european union and what actually they're doing in reality and in reality they are just going along with the u.s. agenda dr james boys professor at king's college london says they are planting
7:06 am
trades on talks between the us sun do you spell doom for edward snowden's quest for asylum. as nation after nation denies him the right to a safer boat is national interest committed before these countries that he's applied to and being rejected from in terms of safe passage are recognizing that whilst they may sympathize with him this degree of naivety to his perspective and position none of them none of these notions can afford to fall out with the united states least of all europe who of course are very interested in pursuing a transatlantic free trade zone for example and that's something of course which is being held over the head of british prime minister david cameron who desperately wants the european trade negotiations but it comes at the exact moment of course whereby here in london is all talk about getting out of the e.u. so there's no doubt that transatlantic trade is a very hot topic at this moment and he's being continued into the area of edge and
7:07 am
how how national leaders must wish this individual just disappear and allow transatlantic trade to get on and unimpeded. the building projects planned for its stumbles get this square have been cancelled by a court in turkey that brings an end to be sure that spark weeks of violent protests as it is across the country get the details online. the russian city of jaroslav has been dragged from his car searched and detained on suspicion of attempted bribery find out what on. its back to the revolution drawing board for egypt they are to moved in and toppled the country isn't this president after just again off its one hundred morsi is under arrest along with other members of the muslim brotherhood while the head of egypt's constitutional court has been sworn in as interim leader there has been hailed by crowds of and to islamist protesters in cairo's tahrir square but

7:16 am
users as an alternative to traditional currencies especially during the euro zone sovereign debt crisis as more people began distrusting the central banks but leverage a coin has been linked to money laundering and accusations of drug smuggling which has made the value of the bitcoin extremely volatile since the start of the year rising from thirteen dollars in january to a peak of two hundred sixty six dollars in april and right now it sits at around ninety dollars now their release is also tightly controlled mimicking a central banking systems control over the minting of money which means they can only ever be twenty one million create it all right now there's around eleven million is circulation this factor has led to some to speculate that there may rise . the facebook feud between the wing cost twins and mars like a virus protected in the twenty to movie the social network and eventually resulted in a sixty five billion dollars settlement so i wonder if they'll be updating their facebook

they felt it was there then they wouldn't be looking for an option like the point so you see already the loss of confidence the loss of commitment it's a sign of where this society is going the u.s. government though isn't too happy with the coins popularity it recently shut down our virtual exchange system for the currency claiming it was a money laundering platform i think we've had one hundred years now of what the u.s. government can do when it gets to manipulate a currency and a lot of people are kind of tired of that and they want to it's experiment in a space where you can't manipulate a currency just what would that even mean for money and i think that's why a lot of people are really interested in the space growing enthusiasm for an invisible currency presented to rival the printed greenback marina port i.r.t. new york to russia now where rescuers have found a site where a passenger helicopter crashed in siberia on chairs day four survivors have been flown to hospital from the remote eastern region but at least twenty four people
7:21 am
are confirmed to have died many of whom were children it took well over a day to get to the downed chopper with low cloud unfold hampering rescue efforts it was only found because the pilot has managed to send his coordinates to emergency services the cause of the crash is still on. american drone strikes could be responsible for ten times more civilian deaths than conventional weapons according to a new report but president barack obama has taken the deadly technology under his wing still maintains that more accurate than fighter jets on his own. but it's no secret that drones are becoming the military's aircraft of choice we've been told they're more efficient and precise than fighter jets but a recent study says otherwise the study was conducted by larry lewis a research scientist for the center of naval analysis lewis took
7:22 am
a close look at the number of air strikes in afghanistan during mid two thousand and ten and two thousand and eleven he got the figures using classified military information and what he found was that drone strikes were ten times more deadly to civilians than traditional manned aircraft now these findings seem to be at odds with what we've heard from government leaders back in may president obama touted the benefits of drone warfare as i've already said even small special operations. enormous risks. conventional or poem missiles are for less precise than brooch. and there are likely to cause more civilian casualties and more local outrage. other high level government leaders have claimed the benefits of drones long before president obama addressed the issue of civilian casualties in drone warfare here's john brennan back in april of two thousand and twelve at the time he was an assistant to the president for national security and
7:23 am
counterterrorism we conduct targeted strikes because they are necessary to mitigate actual ongoing threat to stop plots prevent future attacks and to see american lives but quantifiable data are proving this has been scarce due to the secrecy of the drone program exact figures of drone strikes were not disclosed in the latest study because that information is classified but it calls into question just how much more precise drones really are compared to man their planes the researchers that conducted this study have an idea they told the guardian quote these findings show us that it's not about the technology it's about how the technology is used drone darn magically better at avoiding civilians than fighter jets when pilots flying jets were given clear directives and training on civilian protection they were able to lower civilian casualty rates also important to note the latest study
7:24 am
only takes into account civilian deaths in afghanistan and places like yemen and pakistan it's harder to obtain figures on the number of deaths because the only way to get data is from the drones themselves so as the drone debate comes into that the national spotlight this study points out that the benefits of drone technology and training of drone pilots should be included in that debate in washington lives of all our. let's now go to one of our top stories right now in egypt mohamed morsi has been the rest of the told john sworn in as interim president they gyptian prosecutor's office has reportedly ordered the rest of the muslim brotherhood's leader and his deputy in a major climbdown on won't until yesterday was egypt's leading policy and for more on the changes the country has woken up to i'm joined live by jordan based political analyst dr ibrahim. dr thank you very much indeed for joining us here so what we're seeing now mohamed morsi and his political team going now the current
7:25 am
constitution is suspended all this next for egypt. well let's just say that what happened over the last couple days in egypt represents a historic change of. huge proportions not only for egypt but for the whole of the whole of the arab region the fact that the muslim brothers have lost their grip and egypt signifies something especially when you see over twenty million people go down to the streets in opposition to the rule of the muslim brothers that's a historic u. turn that has taken place after decades of heads of money that the islamists have exercised over the pulse of the arab street so as far as that goes i think we have we have a huge momentous change that will reflect itself over
7:26 am
a decade still come as for what's in store for egypt while we cannot say that egypt will suddenly take an anti imperialist or anti zinah stance the people who are most likely to succeed one hundred morsi such as al but are they or are almost essentially follow the same line on foreign policy economic policy of the i am on syria on peace with israel as mohamed morsi does basically so as far as that goes i don't think there will be a huge change in the near future however. i think what has just happened will open the door for the front trends to appear that are not visible right now on the egyptian political landscape and maybe in the next few months or year or two
7:27 am
we will do fortunately i'm sorry to interrupt you we're running out of time sorry for that dr abraham children based political analyst thank you very much for sharing abuser that's thank you. so you. point them to me promoted myths and fables with breaking the said after the break. as a person who lives in russia i get asked very often why automatic console fat well are americans actually fat or is this just a myth from some hater countries the centers for disease control have declared obesity to be a disease as if twenty point nine percent of adult americans are obese and that is an all time high people blame the sedentary lifestyle as the cause yes if you were out all day at work and then all evening after driving home sure doesn't help your
