regime change despite agreeing to join the peace meeting. will welcome for me kevin owen here in moscow tonight this is our teachers after eleven pm moscow time now and first egypt's interior ministry has warned it's going to disperse protesters soon as muslim brotherhood supporters continue their rallies it's following a night of deadly clashes between the military and those backing the deposed president morsy the health ministry is now recognised the death toll of seventy four but morsy supporters say it's over one hundred troops got the latest in cairo . an uncomfortable calm has descended across the country are three very bloody nights here in egypt when there were clashes between security forces and supporters that ousted leader mohamed morsi i went to the city where the clar clashes took
place which is in a place called nasr city if you kilometers from here where i'm standing into his square there were burned cars rocks and pools of blood to leading up to wards this city in where supporters of mohamed morsy will reeling after this very fine and nights magic's was scrubbing the floors of blood off the bodies had been basically stacked up in piles any place they could find they told me meanwhile people were still being treated for injuries late into the afternoon and funeral prayers were have now in the ministry of interior denies the claims from these supposed to mostly and they fired on protesters they say they have never shot at a protester they only used tear gas to basically dispersed this city in which had stretched to far away from there about the way mosque where the system is taking place they also said they would now launch a kind of campaign on
a religious extremism and work together with the military to disperse these sit ins the two main sit ins are here in the capital at this mosque and also at cairo university and the people in these instances i spoke to today said to me they're not going anywhere so we're really seeing quite a tense atmosphere where we've got people here into here is celebrating the ouster of mossi very much supporting the military and all of its actions of the security forces or meanwhile people are mourning the loss of their loved ones in the city in just a few kilometers away. political after so we have police holding morsy in prison won't work but he has to go through the election process again if he wants to return to power. he still does have a large following of course. and what should be done is that he should be brought into some kind. we should somehow try to go back to the situation where you have to replace the engine elections in these again i don't think that it could work that
you have an elected president in jail and i don't think that it's going to end the anger and the sense of injustice that his followers have. egyptian army started a large scale anti-terrorist operation in the sinai peninsula bordering israel too heavy weapons are being deployed to the area where extremist attacks on the military but increasingly frequent. records. what we do know is that the egyptian military has closed all internet says in and out of the sinai it's launched a forty eight hour operation to deal with a sudden increase in the number of islamist operating there the information that we have is that there have been violent clashes in the area of this way it not only centered there but also in areas like elevation other villages in the surrounding area these clashes are between the army and extremists that have been operating there for quite some time now let me remind you that the situation in sinai has been unruly ever since the overthrow of the former egyptian president hosni mubarak
and since then we've witnessed an increase in these kind of attacks these kind of violent acts happening in the sinai but we're hearing from the army as that there are at least five hundred extremist militants operating in an area of four square kilometers now the army says that they are heavily armed it says that they could use civilians in those areas as human shields and at the same time the army has deployed both its if force and on the ground troops who are heavily armed allegedly muslim brotherhood supporters are taking up arms and i'll go into the sinai where there are joining these islamist groups from the army we're hearing that they've been fired on that they have been attacked by these extremist elements more than sixty bedwyn tribes signed a memorandum that they support the egyptian army and that this is a support for the egyptian people they're trying to put some kind of order there but the situation is merely continuing to descend into chaos. from turkey terrorism
and middle east expert world far as he told with militants on the side refers to created you heard this story. all originally these were members of the jemaah islamiyah an offshoot of the muslim brotherhood years ago of the islamic jihad of egypt who who's head was chairman was as it were eerie the current head of al qaida but then was time as a figure over the past two to three years many international jihadist have been joining them some coming from sudan from libya from other parts of the middle east also international ones from central asia and from chechnya but of course the numbers of the international ones it's very small the egyptian army now as far as we can see is waging an operation in northern sinai where the bulk of these forces have been operating against the military both the police and the soldiers of egypt with the ultimate a more of making sure that these forces that you have the forces won't have an
enclave they use an army there is not that had the most serious and continued few more months according to information from the egyptian army of course there would have been a declaration of an emirate of northern sinai online actually information down the public and that would be the equivalent of was it was done for example in pakistan or northern mali so the egyptian army first concern is to ensure that there would be no exclusive control by those terrorists and that of course they do we know that they going to be fighting a long war against terrorists in sinai and most likely also in mainland egypt and tunisia could be on its way towards plunging into chaos to after violence erupted when tens of thousands gathered for the funeral of assassinated opposition leader got more than a few minutes. privacy rights activists a demonstration across germany against u.s. worldwide surveillance and bird role in it the revelations by edward snowden of ignited public anger among germans who say that their governments let them down as
artist peter on the found out. demonstrators are gathering in over forty cities around germany to show their support for both edward snowden and bradley manning the largest of those demonstrations is taking place in the financial german financial capital of frank first but as here in berlin as well as many other cities around the country marches are taking place to show their support for the the two whistleblowers and to show their anger at the way that not only the united states government has been spying into their private lives they're in mails their phone calls their social networking sites and allies but the way in which the german government appears to have been well not just complicit but an active partner in taking part in that spying it's turned out that germany being one of the the most watched countries by the n.s.a. prism operation over five hundred million data connections were intercepted from
germany every month and that's according to some of the the leaked memos that were put forward by edward snowden now those people who have come out here in berlin told me exactly why they want to show their support for edward snowden and other whistleblowers and why they're angry at the german government. i'm very unhappy we have a constitution and laws in this country the german government isn't interested in our holding their own constitution the way germany is led by the us and spying makes me want to puke. on my country with this process my private life is important to me is something sacred that should be protected in . its own food with snowden and manning are going through they're being treated as criminals for exposing the real crimes of the military and security services. it's outrageous that the german government refuses to do anything to protect its own
people's privacy. while holding banners saying yes we scan a parody of the a bomb as election speech for his first term of yes we can they're angry at what they say is being let down by not only their own government but the infringements by the united states his government into their privacy they want to be left alone they say and they're saying as well today that they're all edward snowden's they're all bradley manning's and that's why they're standing together across germany. coming up the house of cards as well and truly tumbled down america's largest cyber fraud case that had washington on the run for years now five a charged with swiping hundreds of millions of dollars from people's credit. wealthy british.
or you can inquire into the use of chemical weapons in syria's got off the ground as investigators and damascus officials finally reach an agreement the probe was stalled as the u.n. had demanded full access to syrian facilities which the authorities had denied another breakthrough has been reached a new york a key rebel groups now going to take part. in a peace conference aimed at trying to resolve the two year war in syria security council members but is more important explains next there are conditions in terms of. what those preconditions are it's hard to detect it seems as though they want to make sure that syrian president bashar al assad has no authority following the to the to the meeting and another precondition possibly once a transitional government is established that that transitional government would
have full authority over the security in the military in syria there's a lot of back and forth with the wording with the russian ambassador to the u.n. really underscored here is that all this talk of prevent the geneva two meeting from actually moving forward and taking place they were mentioning and one of the things that they needed more weapons etc etc so some other remarks that were making sort of leading in the direction of for the for the conflict for the conflict which . with no obvious end in sight there's no secret that the syrian opposition would like to receive the weapons in arms and military aid that the obama administration recently promised to provide to the rebels fighting against syrian president bashar al assad it is clearly you know soon that the delegation representing the syrian opposition is here in new york discussed that issue with u.s. secretary of state john kerry now before they began their bilateral meeting on thursday secretary kerry said that there could be no military solution to the
syrian crisis only a political solution but if that is the case many ask why would washington the shipping more weapons and arms to a country that is in the midst of a civil war that is now reaching two and a half years so we have this meeting taking place and a lot of talk but it seems as though the positions still remain and there has been no date yet set for this geneva two meeting that is co organized co-sponsored by russia and the u.s. and to a company you told us that western backed the terms to topple the assad regime only storable on its nest in syria rendering it useless. the united states and the united kingdom france other western nations have really made clear that they will only accept the fall of the side and despite the fact that they continually try to say that they're for peace negotiations it seems at every turn whether it's sending arms to the rebels whether it's in them quote unquote non-lethal aid money in general supporting the gulf countries that are also supporting them that really all of the talk about peace is disingenuous and unlike russia and other countries they
seem very. determined to push forward the syrian rebels as the new leadership of the country regardless of the situation on the ground when the russian the united states where originally trying to promote the geneva two conference we saw that the syrian rebels essentially said that they had no intention of negotiating until the situation on the ground changed that is so they gained the military upper hand so from their perspective they seem only willing to negotiate if the military situation allows them to have the upper hand in negotiations but if they seem to be losing the war if it seems that support for them inside of the country is dropping all of a sudden they have no desire to negotiate and they only want to continue to push war which is the subtext of this entire meeting where on the sidelines they have been pushing for more and more military aid from the united states and for it to come significantly quicker. please report the russian protesters outside the parliament building introducing as capital after dispersing them with earlier saturday tens of thousands of people flooded the streets of tunis for the funeral
of mohammed to a key secular opposition figure who was assassinated outside his home on thursday political analyst professor wretched khalifa from tunis university claims the government often flirts with terrorists instead of keeping mcveigh. belonged to a certain group you know in. sherry i'm sorry but you know we know that this group of course is is a terrorist group but i don't think the government is doing anything basically to. stop that and i would say that even the flirted with the government in this is run by this there was a party and i think the islamists it's not you're listening to the people it's not listening in to the opposition or the opposition parties i think the rift is why did he. stick around if you like this. and you know it's you know the pulse of the street and i think. you know the situation. that we have today which is really exclusive to. the people of mali are prepared to
pick a president on sunday but there are fears that organizing a successful ballot simply too much too soon for the war right nation we've got report of my coming up in just a bit. more thought to be america's largest fraud scheme in years five people have been charged with stealing more than three hundred million dollars by siphoning people's credit cards but now face trial and could spend decades in jail if convicted three hundred breaks blake's got the story. we had five guys four russian nationals and one ukrainian man who over the course of around seven years were able to penetrate a number of the networks of leading financial institutions banks all sorts of systems where very important information was being stored over the course for several years those men broke into the databases allegedly took a sensitive information and in the end u.s. prosecutors now say that those five men were able to compromise roughly one hundred sixty million credit cards causing upwards of three hundred million dollars of
damage they were able to elude authorities for around seven or eight years now but actually masterminding this operation itself took a lot of very careful planning now all of the five men that are believed involved in this each one kind of had a separate little niche that they would specialize in for instance were experts when it came to penetrating computer networks others would go into these networks after they were compromised in mind for even more would build up very very sophisticated internet networks to be able to communicate anonymously so by having different specialists in different sectors they were all able to put the pieces together and cause millions of dollars hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage and affect people around the globe two of them were arrested one of them has since been extradited from the netherlands the other one is awaiting extradition and three of them are at large so once they are brought to the u.s. and tried the could be looking at likely decades in prison. that was unsealed

approximately six thousand troops on the ground inside the country now there are about four thousand french troops they feel that this election can present some type of credibility for the end coming government as well as the united nations presence there and they can accelerate their exit from the country they still plan on having some one thousand french forces even by the end of the twenty thirteen more international news now embrace mass jailbreak in libya seen more than a thousand inmates escape it happened on the outskirts of the eastern city benghazi the prisoners rioted at the same time as the facility was attacked from the outside it comes after a prominent political activist was killed in the same city leading to widespread protests six people were killed on friday in florida man who took hostages in an apartment complex police say there was a row between the couple who ran the building and the gunman who may have been a tenant when police arrived they found two dead bodies and then heard more shots
office and eventually killed the gunman in a shootout that. world orthodox church delegations arrived in ukraine following the historical holy relic the st andrew's cross that unites the nations of ancient russia but the symbolic event in kiev comes during politically hard times for ukraine right now with a country to crossroads between russia and the e.u. really going to explain. well it's really the center of one of the most grandiose religious festivities you have seen in the last several years that hundreds of thousands of people have flocked here and the reason why the festivities are taking part place is because one thousand and twenty five years ago it was here and it was adopted as official religion. and then spread its way across the country and there have been several you can see conflicts that russia and ukraine have participated in over the past several decades the orange revolution which increasingly saw
ukraine pushing its way. away from rushing towards ukraine is distant destroying favorable relations with russia for thousands of reasons suffice it to say that every third ukrainian has close relatives living in russia and although more than half of the country. the course the lead is moving in the opposite direction. because. of course there are people in ukraine who a look at who are looking west they're looking at europe and they're thinking that . it's in the european union that. their attention and their priorities lie to adopt the european lifestyle they want to see some of the values at the same time of course russia and ukraine share a lot of cultural historic and of course they can all make. a lot of critics. of ukraine warned that should the country's turn. basically diluting its national identity. to you for your news of programs continue after the break. next
report just a couple of. boy oh boy there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from mysterious extra planets drip killian creatures living among us but there also may conspiracy theories that are very plausible and some that are well actually true one that i've heard for a long time is that they are specifically trying to fool the police with dimwits to abuse the american people which is silly right right well according to a.b.c. news a discrimination lawsuit revealed that robert jordan was denied the chance to become a new london police officer because he was too smart his entrance exam score was
a thirty three which is an i.q. of one hundred twenty five and it was just too high to allow him to defend the public good that police department only accepts candidates who have scores from twenty to twenty seven the logic is that people who are too smart get bored as policeman and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah this is proof of a conspiracy theory well the lowest score they accept is still around an average i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with subpar people but it does seem really weird to fear people with high i.q.'s entering the police force this case that confirms nor denies the conspiracy theory but is definitely food for thought and does a kind of not make sense to discriminate against anyone ever for having a high i.q. i don't know but that's just my opinion.
welcome to the kaiser report i'm max kaiser you can use business secretary vince cable as compare the bank of england to the taliban and to the hottest vince made this comparison not because of their reckless quantitative easing nor because of their overlooking bank fraud and infinite rehired complication that is to say because they are indeed terrorists now vince cable is saying that the bank of england are jihadi for insisting banks have minimum capital reserves vince. old boy as i've said for use the bank of england are indeed like the taliban but only because they provided the safe haven for the jihadi of banking fraud is trapped on the debt pact suicide vests and blew up the entire frickin economy and
that same taliban central bank is now papering over the bloody aftermath with little pieces of digital paper that explain more we turn to stacey or when max first of all i did look at jihad and i'm sure the n.s.a. knows i looked it up on google and the definition provided by google was that it's a war a struggle against unbelievers so this is important for the rest of the episode this notion of unbelievers which i think we should return for the west as disbelievers nobody believes their lies and fraud anymore vince cable calls bank of england capital taliban vince cable has stirred tensions within the bank of england by apparently comparing policy makers to the taliban over restrictions imposed upon banks well first of all along.
