say private investigators are hired to study the case ibrahim's father is currently in b u r where he says he hopes he had legal action to see his son's killers punished and he's in a situation the grieving father. a quaint residential neighborhood in florida and a father who can't hold back his tears. nothing will bring me peace as long as i live from the moment it happened i haven't been able to forget about it even for a second barely containing his grief. takes a moment several times during our interview. a few days ago he arrived in the u.s. from russia to seek answers for his son in brigham's tragic death this is the entrance into the condo where twenty seven year old greg lived minutes away from disney world it was here that on may twenty second after reportedly being questioned by officials for hours he was shot and killed by the f.b.i. under circumstances most of which remain murky. from reminiscing about ibrahim as
a child who was very much into sports. to looking through graphic images that a parent should never get to see images that will haunt him for the rest of his life which four or five shots right into the heart i've never seen things like this even in the movies not in the u.s. not in russia nowhere such violence from law enforcement nowhere have i seen anything like this in the morning father's on a mission to uncover the truth behind the f.b.i.'s killing of his son and he's even willing to say. this but i want justice honestly because an unprecedented intentional murder of my son took place. ibrahim came to the u.s. in two thousand and eight to study english and ended up staying to pursue a career in martial arts this spring he was questioned in connection with
a triple homicide in massachusetts as well as the boston marathon bombings as officials believe the chechen young man had been friends with the deceased suspect to milan. the father says the only connection his son had to the tsar knives was a chechen background that had once promised. them to exchange phone numbers were given received multiple fatal gunshots to the heart and head during the night of the questioning the f.b.i. claimed a violent confrontation took place but has been blocking autopsy results from going public some reports suggested breggin was armed with a knife others a broomstick but there are also claims that he was not armed at all demands from the american civil liberties union and the council on american islamic relations for florida authorities to hold an investigation were declined while the f.b.i. claims to be conducting an inquiry of its own as we know they would never be able to prove his guilt in anything because they killed him if they kept him alive tried him that would be a whole different story. showing us the postcards from american sending condolences
to his family he hopes those behind his son's killing would show some heart as well . maybe the f.b.i. will have some kind of guilt resurface and it meant that they committed this fatal mistake for several years prior to his death ibrahim was not able to leave the u.s. while waiting to be granted a green card he eventually received permanent residence status and had plans to visit home on may twenty fourth but he died two days earlier. i'll never get tired i'll do what i can i'm just not able to leave this. r.t. orlando florida it seems adopt clowes a gathering of the relations between the u.k. and spain london is considering unprecedented legal action of the madrid lengthy tracks of the border into the british territory of gibraltar downing street claims they are politically motivated. are also expected to trial by this trade although
it's kind. of. explain. it all started with spain saying that it really wants to protect its interests mainly fishing interests as this whole spat this whole story was sparked by building an artificial reef which spain claims is destroying fishing in the area and therefore it had imposed the border checks on those going to one from a gibraltar a british held territory and therefore causing a lot of delays and right now the rhetoric is escalating between britain and spain over the matter britain is threatening e.u. legal action over spain see what it says it's a politically motivated move and london mayor boris johnson actually said that it is quote unquote tantamount to a blockade even used particularly harsh words saying quote i hope one way or another we will shortly prior spanish hands off the throat of our colony end quote and also like and be actions of the spanish government to the franco park the time
of military dictatorship favorite sport as reported by the spanish press is considering escalating this to the level of the united nations even floating around the idea of spain and argentina presenting a united front over gibraltar and the falkland islands and clearly as britain boris johnson in particular is criticizing spain by raising the a franco era you have spain you're highlighting what critics would really see as britain's colonial behavior or habits and now all of this is happening as thousands of royal navy personnel have already set sail for the mediterranean in what the ministry of defense has insisted it is a long scheduled a training exercise well long scheduled or not it seems the timing is not lost on the london mayor boris johnson as he said that quote the deployment should send a clear signal to the spanish who it seems that the spot is continuing to go on and
a contributor returns if things this scandal is supposed to distract spanish people from real problems at home. thousands of companies register their fake registrations in effect to avoid taxes it's like a some people comment is like some sort of gangster island which britain wants to protect for itself of course other people are saying that both of mariano rajoy. and his government ministers they want to avoid they want to create a distraction from the disastrous economy that now exists in spain as he continues policies a bit like britain's extreme austerity sixty percent youth unemployment of course in spain and the i.m.f. even saying that's going to last some time so this is a kind of diversion well the absurdity i suppose is that david cameron wants to take it to the european court of justice and it was only a couple of weeks ago that david cameron here in his home minister were trying to pull out of the european court of justice trying to avoid the obligations. because
trops in a while pull a wall. later this hour for from the plight of the ethnic minority which has found itself in the way of al qaeda linked groups who are aiming to such an islamic state . and also coming out trying the way since the us has the world's top all important because gosling engines of its industry is carried at full speed towards a global political and economic ship to the east. but all over my language of all but i will only react to situations i have read the reports i'm likely to put in the know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your minor point like a monkey say to secure your car is all your dog you know gone. over there joe no more weasel words when you made
this is as he welcomed by the u.s. secretary of state is currently on and comfortable trip to latin america where it seems sorry's not see the thing this train created by the spy revelations of edward snowden it was a tough task for john kerry defending washington's far reaching surveillance during talks in colombia and now his walk of shame is continuing in brazil which is apparently thinking twice before proceeding with a half to four billion dollar deal to purchase american fighter jets more details now from roni of allah. it is going to be john kerry's first visit to south america seen stake in the secretary of state job but apparently not they used his specter to face up to a variety of questions raised about the incident involving president is from believe you know when he's airplane was blocked in europe recently and in the wake of the revelations that washington has been the spy in america. today for mation
release by future blow were told and brazil was the top original target for the n.s.a. surveillance program washington was a brain please being on. brazilians telephone records as well as private e-mails for about a day kate brazil's foreign minister through all that has said this can't be left out of the conversation between two top countries the us right after the brazilian paper published an article in july you and the n.s.a. collecting data on bins of telephone email conversations in the country the foreign minister suppressed deep concern and asks for a small nations in father bill brazil once the matter addressed at the united nations to find a legal way to protect the rights of citizens and preserve the servant of the countries me why it looks like the most provocative relations are you still to come
diem agree world the american journalists who publish his golden leaked documents claimed that what has seen so far just these mollies slice of a much bigger cake he promised to release thousands of files in the upcoming weeks or so related to what he say is secret united states surveillance of the global internet. that has reportedly told brazilians sophie shows that the new disclosures we'll unveil more each are great. because it will solve the americas a spy world a white and he brazil in particular so it looks like washington has some he shows too are you an out why the n.s.a. scandal seems to be taking on a broader to make sure it's running her fellow to r t brazil. america's or timex keys that i spy program is
a vital and to tara tool is not strong enough when it comes to snooping on the brakes group members which present as part of so says japanese columnist every train on. the surveillance was targeting economic interests business interests this adds an entirely new dimension to this story because as we all know brazil is one of the world's leading emerging economies in the united states and the ruling class in the united states that is tremendously fearful of the rising economic power of the brics grouping it is not just a formality that we use this term it represents a shift in the global economic balance of power and the united states knowing that its economic power is waning is using alternative means to exercise his gemini and project its own power and the surveillance that the n.s.a. operates within other agencies as well that is a fundamental part of that whether it gives the united states an upper hand in
negotiations whether it allows them to use blackmail and other forms of leverage all of this is part of the the eternal kid if you will of u.s. imperialism in latin american around the world. to secretary kerry justifying suburbans in latin america to be part of once again sticking it to call pride in forces in celebration of its staff anniversary of the flagship pirate website has released a modified browser intended to second band censorship and speaking to r.c. the lido sweden's pirate party commented on the science extraordinary voyage and gave her thoughts on that debate and it is actually quite amazing that the part of still alive i mean it's been around for ten years and ten years is an eternity in internet time and it's also a site that has been persecuted by a lot of corporate industry companies especially from from america from hollywood and but also music industry but i think also that the copyright industry will have a really really hard time trying to close them down even in the future at the core
your party focuses on no free flow information how does a lens figure in your party is thinking the right to personal integrity is incredibly important important for the pirate party and it's also very closely linked to file sharing because if you want to stop file sharing someone somewhere needs to know everything that you send and receive with our computers. you all know what we do with computers today i mean we work over the internet we data over the internet we buy you things we communicate with our friends so to have someone monitoring everything that you do online is so huge integrity infringement and it's a problem that the whole world has to be because it's it's not something that only american citizens are targeted with it's something that everybody who uses the internet is potentially targeted with. with the persistence of the sochi winter olympics will not be discriminated against as a result of russia's new law against homosexual propaganda to mine is the country's
interior ministry has dismissed any claims to the contrary as far fetched and baseless this follows away with protests against the new law by western communities there's a confidence looks now at what's causing all the reaction. the international reaction as well as domestic here reaction here in russia has really been hinged on what the law does and doesn't do and there's been a lot of misconceptions about it so let's really break it down now the bill criminalizes the public expression of support for so-called nontraditional relationships russian lawmakers say that it doesn't outlaw homosexuality it merely discourages the discussion of it among people younger than eighty and now the law doesn't outlaw gay sex which was actually legalized in russia back in one thousand nine hundred three it also doesn't explicitly ban the participation in gay pride parades the problem however is that the defendant and of propaganda is rather vague and it's based on intent so anyone who distributes information for example with the
intention of persuading minors that nontraditional sexual relationships are attractive could be accused of breaking this law any individuals or organizations who are accused convicted of violating it face fines foreign citizens could potentially face up to fifteen days in prison deportation and denial of the entry into russia now will most activist believe that this law will not to be widely enforced there is concern that it effectively gives some local governments carte blanche to say to ban gay pride parades and to discourage people from discussing lesbian gay bisexual issues on the internet so that's the worry the thing to keep in mind however is that russian society is very traditional and conservative and there is in fact a lot of support for this legislation here domestically the independent center of polling center here in russia have actually found that seventy three percent of respondents support any government efforts to curb homosexual propaganda in fact at
least to texas haven't really changed over the years it also found that four out of five russians say that they don't have a single lesbian or gay acquaintance so that is why there's been such a difference in for example the western and. international reaction versus the reaction right here in russia that's a perfect opportunity to sort of make political statements for whatever issue that comes up this is the the main sort of social hot button issue that's been raised internationally originally the law had sparked a boycott of russian vodka and gave them bars across north america and elsewhere with people dumping a box in front of russian embassies eventually the calls moved on to boycott the twenty fourteen winter olympics in sochi and one of the prominent british actor stephen fry of course raised intense controversy when he wrote an open letter to the prime minister david cameron as well as the international olympic committee suggesting calling for a boycott suggesting fact that there should be
a boycott of the cames even comparing them to the games held in berlin in one thousand and thirty six of course that was in nazi germany but we should also states that most officials including u.s. president barack obama had said that the boycott is unnecessary and that these games should continue to be attended by the athletes now here in russia the russians force minister said that foreign athletes will be expected to respect the laws of the country but the head of russia's the olympic committee alexander also spoke out on this issue he said that russia will do its best to effectively keep the guests on the participants safe and comfortable that very mixed reaction internationally but russian officials are trying to encourage athletes to to feel comfortable and to of course participate in these upcoming sochi winter olympic games. initially on the outskirts of syria's civil war kurds now find themselves caught right in the middle reports suggest al qaeda linked to heart it have
slaughtered more than four hundred fifty kurdish civilians including women and children and are believed to be holding many more hostage if confirmed kurdish leaders in iraq say they are ready to intervene human rights activist as he says the militants want access to natural resources there these groups so you can start going to islamic states they supposed to engulf the bill coil rich areas of kurds. they said they are supported very world by talking so there are two factors one of them is that these groups want to establish their or islamic state many islamic state which is a project to establish a huge islamic state. to syria and iraq now they see that kurds are facing them all the kurds is a challenge to them the other factor is the turkey is pushing this groups against kurds because turkey is not happy there. are willing go to try to establish their
own internal me in the region and the kurdish region northern syria china is likely to overtake the us has the world's largest crude oil importer this year according to a report by the energy information association with millions of drivers thirsty for petrol and growing industrial production beijing's liquid fuel imports are forecast to rise to over six million barrels per day on his cage appeal day and has more now on the market reaction. well investors really it's a sigh of relief that we seen we had a metals rally on our hands at one point and it's not just oil that's making its way to china in record amounts but soybeans i and as well but the oil really demonstrates a change in dynamics is a global shift the u.s. has been the top of consumers it's the early ninety's father china is growing they need the oil for that they need it for their cars for their factories for the infrastructure but really aligned with this is what's going on in the u.s.
domestically the shale gas boom they're far more self-sufficient than ever before the people that are set to benefit a rock especially that's where the most oil goes to more than half actually comes from iraq and the middle east in general but russia is also going to want to listen into this we know that russia wants to tap in being neighbors into this market just make china more attractive estate and really but as well as that it's not just about economics is about politics as well with the oil market because it is such a to mulches region the oil producing countries and the maybe pressure on china now to be more vocal in what's going on there the u.s. perhaps more or less inclined less motivated to be so going forward talking about responsibility also the emissions carbon emissions we know china isn't exactly admired for the eco ethe also be interesting to see if they follow in the footsteps of the likes of europe japan who are more conscious in this department or follow in their predecessor the u.s.
and gas girls a lot. coming up next aids breaking the set with. the u.s. government project errol marty has been in place for twenty years this project was designed to break the media monopoly of cuban television by putting u.s. government propaganda on t.v. screens this injection of american t.v. works with a blimp and a c one thirty military plane working in tandem you know this would actually be a major achievement in the history of technology if it actually worked this program which over the years has built up a billion taxpayer dollars simply does not work but continues to exist despite the cuban government completely blocking the transmission the official logic of
continuing the program is that it would send a bad message to the cuban government if they stopped brilliance and action but the big question is who gives the u.s. government the right to propagandize cubans just because they have a different lifestyle doesn't mean it is wrong and the u.s. government does has the right to destroy it and even if cubans on mass actually do hate their system then it is their job to change cuba not the military industrial complex and its cronies in washington but that's just my opinion. to live on one hundred thirty three bucks a month for food i should try it because you know how fabulous. i mean. i guess i just really messed up. really so most of the. worst for the. white house of
a day or. i want. to give you never seen anything like this. let up guys i'm having martin and this is breaking the set you know you'd think that with all the uproar over the n.s.a. leaks we would be hearing at least some type of reassurance that war of the spine would be scaled back you know obama has told the public that he wants more oversight me agency's data collection program very few people are taking him at his word and one of those skeptics is former n.s.a. and cia director michael hayden who had this to say on face the nation. president is trying to take some steps to make the american people more comfortable about what it is we're doing that's going to be hard because frankly bob some steps to make them.
