And famous for his music, but should the Sex Pistols' Johnny

:01:21.:01:27.

Rotten be remembered for his Hello and welcome. In the face of

:01:27.:01:30.

growing unrest in Egypt and in a dramatic attempt to placate

:01:30.:01:35.

protesters, the leader of the country's Military Council, Field

:01:35.:01:40.

Marshal Hussein Tantawi, has agreed to hand over power to a civilian

:01:40.:01:45.

president by January last year. He agreed to accept the resignation of

:01:45.:01:50.

the Prime Minister's cabinet and replace it within days. Let's go

:01:50.:01:55.

live to Lyse Doucet to joins us from Tahrir Square.

:01:55.:02:02.

Today the organisers called it A Million man protest. Today's

:02:02.:02:07.

demonstrations were the biggest since their historic protests in

:02:07.:02:11.

January and February that toppled President Hosni Mubarak. Now the

:02:11.:02:15.

same chance are going up from the square, calling for the President

:02:15.:02:19.

to go and also Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi to step down. Even

:02:19.:02:23.

when he spoke to the people of Egypt he spoke to these protesters

:02:23.:02:30.

saying he has no intention to remain in power, but the square

:02:30.:02:36.

said leave, lead. There has been a constant wail of ambulance sirens,

:02:36.:02:39.

a measure of how many people are being injured in these running

:02:39.:02:48.

battles. This report is from our Middle East correspondent.

:02:48.:02:52.

They are carrying the dead. In the square they celebrated a revolution

:02:52.:02:57.

not so long ago. Today was the biggest demonstration so far in

:02:57.:03:01.

what they are calling the second revolution. As a protest build up

:03:01.:03:06.

on the edge of the square there was relentless confrontation. Egyptians

:03:06.:03:11.

are furious with the way the military are running the country.

:03:11.:03:17.

The police fired round after round of tear gas and gunshots. The

:03:17.:03:21.

motorcycles are bringing in more casualties by the hour. The crowds

:03:21.:03:25.

are growing in the square and the military rulers of Egypt have no

:03:26.:03:32.

new ideas, no answers to this crisis. At the field hospital I met

:03:32.:03:37.

a 37 year-old doctor originally from Luxor. He is bitterly

:03:37.:03:42.

disappointed to find himself back on medical duty in the square just

:03:42.:03:46.

as he was nine months ago. thought everything was beautiful

:03:46.:03:52.

and our country was heading for democracy and everything would be

:03:52.:03:59.

fine. I never expected we would stay all this time without change.

:03:59.:04:08.

Everything is the same. We have the same regime. I have lost hope. I am

:04:08.:04:14.

very, very disappointed. Finally after days of silence the Prime

:04:14.:04:18.

Minister emerged to make a desperate appeal. I beg you, I beg

:04:18.:04:23.

you, put your country first, please go back home and let things come

:04:23.:04:27.

down. And then the commander himself, Field Marshal Hussein

:04:27.:04:32.

Tantawi, head of the military cancelled that now rules Egypt made

:04:33.:04:37.

a rare television broadcast. He insisted the military do not want

:04:37.:04:42.

to hold on to power. Parliamentary elections will go ahead next week

:04:42.:04:45.

as planned and presidential elections by the middle of next

:04:45.:04:50.

year. The military, he said, only had the interests of the Egyptian

:04:50.:04:56.

people at heart. So, driven by the huge demonstrations, late in the

:04:56.:05:00.

day the Army have finally started making concessions, but will it be

:05:00.:05:06.

enough? These protesters want an end to military rule right now and

:05:06.:05:12.

there is no sign they are about to go away.

:05:12.:05:16.

In a country of 80 million people many would have watched and

:05:16.:05:21.

listened to this rare speech by the field marshal. It could be a speed

:05:21.:05:26.

that divides Egyptians outside the Square, but Egyptians are now

:05:26.:05:31.

saying the military has given us a road map for moving ahead and the

:05:31.:05:36.

countries should move on. But here in Tahrir Square where people are

:05:36.:05:39.

huddled around car radios to listen to what he said, many are saying

:05:39.:05:44.

they cannot move on unless they are certain Egypt at last is moving in

:05:44.:05:54.
:05:54.:05:55.

the right direction. We will keep an eye on all the developments.

:05:55.:06:00.

The wrangling over where Colonel Gaddafi's son aside up his man will

:06:00.:06:05.

stand trial continues. Libya's justice minister says he will not

:06:05.:06:10.

be handed over to the International War crimes Tribunal. The ICC's says

:06:11.:06:17.

they must be involved. Saif Al- Islam is currently being held in

:06:17.:06:20.

Zintan. Caroline Hawley sent this report.

:06:20.:06:25.

These pictures were filmed in southern Libya shortly after Saif

:06:25.:06:29.

Al-Islam was captured on Saturday, a major prize for the militia men

:06:29.:06:35.

who found him. They promise you'll get a fair trial. Saif Al-Islam

:06:35.:06:39.

replies he does not know where he will be held prisoner, in Libya or

:06:39.:06:44.

outside the country. In Libya he is told. His captors show the cameras

:06:44.:06:49.

this applies he had with him during the weeks he spent on the run after

:06:49.:06:54.

his father's regime was toppled in August. He also carried with him a

:06:54.:06:59.

warning, that the country would see new divisions and the former rebels

:07:00.:07:05.

now in charge would bring no good to Libya. TRANSLATION: Regarding

:07:05.:07:11.

the people of Benghazi or Misrata, you consider them your brothers,

:07:11.:07:16.

go-ahead, but just give them a couple of months or one year and

:07:16.:07:21.

you will find out the reality. Please do not deny it on the day

:07:21.:07:26.

Saif Al-Islam was taken prisoner he did not warn you of that. He is

:07:26.:07:30.

being held in Zintan where he was brought shortly after his capture.

:07:30.:07:34.

His whereabouts remain a closely guarded secret as the process of

:07:34.:07:38.

bringing him to justice is discussed in Tripoli between the

:07:38.:07:41.

new Libyan authorities and prosecutors from the International

:07:41.:07:47.

Criminal Court. Luis Moreno-Ocampo had wanted to see Saif Al-Islam in

:07:47.:07:50.

court in the Hague, but he now seems to have accepted a blunt

:07:50.:07:55.

message from the Libyans, that Saif Al-Islam will be tried in the

:07:55.:08:05.

country where he committed his crimes. If they prosecute him here,

:08:05.:08:14.

we will discuss with them how to inform the judges. Saif Al-Islam is

:08:14.:08:18.

billed as he was blown into Zintan and he is likely to face a long

:08:18.:08:26.

wait before Libya is ready to give him a proper trial. -- filmed.

:08:26.:08:31.

In the Gulf state of Bahrain around 3000 protesters have clashed with

:08:31.:08:35.

police in the city of Sitra a day before the findings are released of

:08:35.:08:38.

a human rights report into violence between Government and political

:08:38.:08:43.

activists earlier this year. That includes the convictions of 20

:08:43.:08:48.

Medix accused of helping the protesters. They say they were

:08:48.:08:52.

forced into confessions and are currently on trial -- on bail.

:08:52.:08:57.

Zeinab Badawi has been speaking to one of them, Dr Nada Dhaif, and she

:08:57.:09:02.

asked if there was a fresh opportunity. Personally I am not

:09:02.:09:09.

very optimistic about it. Why not? I do not see how the Government,

:09:09.:09:15.

how the king is going to hire somebody for a fact-finding. I

:09:15.:09:23.

believe it should be an independent committee and not appointed by any

:09:23.:09:28.

party, not the opposition or the Government. The authorities say

:09:28.:09:33.

there were doctors who occupied the hospital in the capital. Were you

:09:33.:09:37.

amongst them? That is the accusation against you. Of course

:09:37.:09:43.

not, I have nothing to do with these charges. I was very shocked

:09:43.:09:50.

the first time I learnt about these charges was when I was at the

:09:50.:09:58.

military court. When I heard the judge telling defendant number sat,

:09:58.:10:04.

I was No. 12, is charged with occupying the hospital, with

:10:04.:10:13.

weapons, I just could not help it, I laughed. When you get so shocked

:10:13.:10:21.

and then you do not know how to react, where did it come from? I do

:10:21.:10:28.

not even work there. You were not there? I was not there. And you

:10:28.:10:33.

have been sentenced to 15 years in prison. Exactly. But you have been

:10:33.:10:37.

granted an appeal. We appealed in front of a civilian court and we

:10:37.:10:42.

were sentenced in a military court. But we were happily in a civilian

:10:42.:10:48.

court. Do you have any idea how your appeal will go? Will your

:10:48.:10:55.

sentence be reduced or thrown out? That depends on the report of the

:10:55.:10:59.

fact-finding commission. It depends on what comes in it and what it

:10:59.:11:04.

says. If it is critical of the authorities, what is the

:11:04.:11:10.

implication for you? We are clear and free to go. Dr Nada Dhaif

:11:10.:11:15.

speaking to Zeinab Badawi. In Tunisia where a popular uprising

:11:15.:11:18.

read to the fall of President Ben Ali in January and sparked a wave

:11:18.:11:23.

of unrest across the Arab world the new constitutional Assembly has

:11:23.:11:27.

held its first session. It was elected last month with a

:11:27.:11:31.

previously banned Islamist party getting the most seats. They will

:11:31.:11:36.

be writing a new constitution to pave the way for elections.

:11:36.:11:40.

A special, so-called Super congressional committee in the US

:11:40.:11:46.

has failed to agree on how to reduce the Bast Government debt.

:11:46.:11:49.

Made up of six Republicans and six Democrats it had been asked to

:11:49.:11:53.

reach a deal on how to cut more than a trillion dollars from the

:11:54.:12:03.
:12:04.:12:05.

Budget. There are too many Republicans who have refused to

:12:05.:12:09.

listen to the voices of reason and compromise that are coming up

:12:09.:12:13.

outside Washington. They continue to insist on protecting $100

:12:13.:12:19.

billion of tax cuts for the World visits to -- wealthiest Americans

:12:19.:12:29.
:12:29.:12:30.

at any cost. At this point they simply will not budge from their

:12:30.:12:37.

position. What is the scale of the US debt crisis and what are the

:12:37.:12:41.

implications of Republicans and Democrats failing to reach a deal.

:12:41.:12:46.

The national debt is now running at more than 15 trillion dollars. The

:12:46.:12:52.

committee's failure to agree means automatic cuts should now take

:12:52.:12:57.

effect in 2013. The automatic cuts amount to one trillion dollars,

:12:57.:13:04.

equal to the annual national output of South Korea. Half of that burden,

:13:04.:13:09.

$500 billion, is expected to fall on defence and national security

:13:09.:13:16.

spending despite their already facing a $450 billion reduction. As

:13:16.:13:22.

this is not set to take effect until January 2013, lawmakers can

:13:22.:13:29.

appeal them. President Obama said he would veto any attempt to do so.

:13:29.:13:33.

Let's go to Washington. The national debt is roughly equal to

:13:33.:13:41.

the US economy. They have had three months to sort this out. They

:13:41.:13:46.

cannot do anything. They really cannot. The whole idea was if you

:13:46.:13:50.

put people in a room with no distraction, with a fast track,

:13:50.:13:54.

they would come to some decision and that is completely wrong.

:13:54.:13:58.

Republicans would not get off keeping the tax rates are low for

:13:59.:14:03.

the wealthy, Democrats would not get off entitlement programmes and

:14:03.:14:08.

keeping programmes like health care for the elderly and the poor. They

:14:08.:14:12.

wanted to keep those programmes as his, which is very difficult. They

:14:12.:14:17.

never really got any closer to that and that was the stalemate. We are

:14:17.:14:21.

looking at political gridlock and presumably this is a live issue

:14:21.:14:25.

right up to the presidential elections. In terms of the

:14:25.:14:31.

automatic cuts, where do they kick in and can they be challenge?

:14:31.:14:36.

you notice President Obama chose his words carefully. He said he

:14:36.:14:39.

would have vetoed turning off those automatic cuts. That is different

:14:39.:14:44.

to changing them. Republicans in Congress and some Democrats are

:14:44.:14:50.

expected to want to change them for less than the impact on defence.

:14:50.:14:54.

The Pentagon has said they cannot afford any more cuts, so that will

:14:54.:15:00.

be a huge political issue and that will be the main battle in 2012,

:15:00.:15:10.

trying to lessen the impact of the issued defence cuts in 2013. Could

:15:10.:15:16.

it potentially affect America's credit rating yet further?

:15:16.:15:19.

credit rating agencies are very careful in what they say, but they

:15:19.:15:23.

are expected to keep the credit rating at the level that it is that

:15:23.:15:28.

as long as these cuts do not go away, the 1.2 trillion dollars in

:15:28.:15:35.

cuts mandated. As long as that deficit reduction happens, we do

:15:35.:15:39.

not expect to see a credit downgrade, although we did not

:15:39.:15:44.

expect to see one last time. It is kind of an enigma to everybody, but

:15:44.:15:48.

that would be another huge stumble for an American political system

:15:48.:15:57.

that seems to have lost its way You have got people trying to work

:15:57.:16:01.

for the public good, but always falling back on to party political

:16:01.:16:06.

prejudices. I was talking to some political folks this morning, no

:16:06.:16:10.

one is willing to fall on their sword. That is the overarching

:16:10.:16:15.

message we hear from both parties, no one is able to fall on their

:16:15.:16:19.

assault and do what is right. All the political figures are staring

:16:19.:16:26.

at a problem they know it exists. They saw trillion -- trillion

:16:26.:16:32.

dollars worth of debt recently. Everyone knows what he's to be done

:16:32.:16:36.

and no one wants to do what. That is what we are living with him

:16:36.:16:41.

watching 10. It is frustrating to be bolder political figures saying,

:16:41.:16:46.

what is going on here. It is a spectacle of sorts and has been

:16:46.:16:53.

over the last couple of months. Thank you.

:16:53.:16:57.

Let's return to our main story on this edition. While the Arab Spring

:16:57.:17:01.

appears to be progressing in the country which was the catalyst for

:17:01.:17:06.

the revolution, what has gone wrong in Egypt to have sparked a second

:17:06.:17:11.

spontaneous uprising in recent days? Let's go to Cairo and speak

:17:11.:17:18.

to our correspondent there who has been following the Arab Uprising.

:17:18.:17:22.

Some of the protesters demands have been met seemingly, but is it too

:17:23.:17:28.

little too late? I was in Tahrir Square and it is packed. People are

:17:28.:17:31.

still there, they are not leaving and there seems to be

:17:31.:17:36.

disappointment. They won more, they expected more, but they did not get

:17:37.:17:41.

it. They were looking for an immediate end to military rule, but

:17:41.:17:45.

they got a transferred to a civilian power by July at the

:17:45.:17:49.

earliest. There was a big gap between what the protesters are

:17:49.:17:55.

asking for and what the military was willing to give. That said, I

:17:55.:18:03.

expect the concessions will go well with the majority of Egyptians. We

:18:03.:18:06.

might see a disconnect between the hard core of protesters who want to

:18:06.:18:10.

stay until they get exactly what they want and other Egyptians who

:18:10.:18:15.

want to see a Writtle -- return to normalcy. They want to see

:18:15.:18:18.

elections on Monday as originally to a job and to continue the

:18:18.:18:23.

transition. That cap -- that gap will be interesting to see.

:18:24.:18:27.

there are also a disbelief about the military's role of are the last

:18:27.:18:32.

few months and their perceived to have been wanting to play on to

:18:32.:18:38.

power at all costs? The military has woefully mismanaged Egypt's

:18:38.:18:44.

transition. They have used many of the same authoritarian tactics as

:18:44.:18:47.

the old regime so that is where a lot of disillusion and frustration

:18:47.:18:52.

has come in. Sometimes even worse. Amnesty International says they

:18:52.:18:59.

even exceeded some of the torture and brutality of President Mubarak.

:18:59.:19:03.

That is a remarkable thing, in some ways they have been worse. When

:19:03.:19:09.

they came to power on 11th February, they promised a tradition -- a

:19:09.:19:12.

transition in six months and we are nine months into a. They are

:19:12.:19:18.

comfortable holding power in Egypt. That is the reason all of this

:19:18.:19:21.

happened in the first place, the unwillingness for the military to

:19:21.:19:26.

give power to a 7th -- civilian elected leadership. How will they

:19:26.:19:30.

persuade people to get involved in this National Salvation government?

:19:31.:19:36.

Will there be the appetite to join that, or will they be seen as

:19:36.:19:40.

stooges of the military, whoever puts their name for? That is the

:19:40.:19:43.

big risk for any political party thinking about Cabinet ministers

:19:43.:19:47.

now. If they go away and that government is not popular and there

:19:47.:19:53.

are more protests here and elsewhere, that is exactly what

:19:53.:19:57.

people are going to be saying, that these are sell-outs and stooges.

:19:57.:20:03.

Any political party that is considering that and balancing the

:20:03.:20:06.

costs and benefits will have to think long and hard about whether

:20:06.:20:11.

this is worth it. Do we want to wait until things stabilise?

:20:11.:20:16.

Briefly, how have the last few months changed that inherent

:20:16.:20:20.

respect Egyptians traditionally have had for the Army in the past

:20:20.:20:26.

50 years? A couple of months ago, there was an opinion poll which

:20:26.:20:30.

suggested that the military had anywhere between 80 % and 90 %

:20:30.:20:34.

approval ratings. Recently, that confidence has dipped and people

:20:34.:20:38.

are starting to wonder, is the military good at managing the

:20:38.:20:41.

country? I still think there is a general respect, and we have to

:20:42.:20:46.

distinguish between the military as an institution and the ruling

:20:46.:20:50.

military council which is made up of around 25 senior members of the

:20:51.:20:55.

military. But I think you are right to point out that there will still

:20:55.:21:02.

be that respect to the institution, not necessarily to the people

:21:02.:21:10.

around those in power right now. Thank you for joining us.

:21:10.:21:15.

Some other news. Pakistan's ambassador, Husain Haqqani, has

:21:15.:21:21.

resigned. It follows disputed evidence that he asked the United

:21:21.:21:24.

States to help in training and the power of the military.

:21:25.:21:29.

Noun Chea, the No. 2 Leader Of the Khmer Rouge, has been giving

:21:29.:21:35.

evidence on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity. He gave a

:21:35.:21:38.

long statement defending his actions when millions of Cambodians

:21:38.:21:41.

died. He called the victims traitors.

:21:41.:21:46.

They have been protests in South Africa against the parliament's

:21:46.:21:53.

approval of a new information law. Critics say the -- it is a major

:21:53.:21:58.

breach of freedom of speech. Columbia has been battling

:21:58.:22:02.

revolutionaries for decades funded through drug trafficking. While

:22:02.:22:06.

cocaine production has been hit by eradication and arrests, illegal

:22:06.:22:11.

gold mining is booming, so much so it has become a new line of

:22:12.:22:15.

business for the local Mafia and armed groups.

:22:15.:22:21.

For centuries, gold has been the sole of Colombia, the heart of its

:22:21.:22:24.

myths and legends, the essence of its history and culture. It has

:22:24.:22:30.

never been as important as today when the country's future wealth

:22:30.:22:34.

and stability depends -- depends on mining this and other precious

:22:34.:22:39.

minerals. High in the mountains were decades of war with violent

:22:39.:22:42.

revolutionaries have been fuelled by drug-trafficking, gold is

:22:42.:22:49.

other sources of funds, and one is illegal mining, especially gold. We

are fighting that because as the drug trafficking has tremendous

environmental consequences, so there's illegal mining.

:23:29.:23:33.

There has been traditional mining here for centuries. The high price

:23:33.:23:37.

of gold has drawn over 100,000 people into illegal gold mining,

They were scrawled in marker pen on the walls of a central London flat.

load them. About most things. But Johnny Rotten was a bit upset

:25:21.:25:25.

one day when he came back to the flat he then shared in central

:25:25.:25:32.

London. He walked up these stairs and found that the others had given

:25:32.:25:37.

the place a makeover. It wasn't quite to his taste so we got out a

:25:37.:25:42.

marker pen and added his own finishing touches.

He drew a comic character -- comic caricature of up Sid vicious and of

but according to some archaeologists, they are of great

:26:01.:26:05.

cultural importance. We know how significant punk was to that

:26:05.:26:11.

generation in the 1970s. These paintings are relevant and

:26:11.:26:13.

significant for their generation, and for that particular period of

:26:13.:26:18.

history. That is the academic's point of view, but what about the

:26:18.:26:23.

quality of the drawings? There are a lot of rock musicians that have

:26:23.:26:29.

produced a lot of terrible art. The funny thing is that unwittingly,

:26:29.:26:34.

Johnny Rotten has produced good caricature us. The story emerged

:26:34.:26:38.

without his influence. Whatever the future holds for this collection of

:26:38.:26:43.

drawings, there is little doubt that the time the Sex Pistols spent

:26:43.:26:46.

in this flat will be studied by academics and enthusiasts for many

:26:46.:26:54.

years to come. That is all from the programme.

Next, the weather. But for now, It did stay cloudy and BME across

:27:15.:27:19.

the south-east corner, but for many we have sunshine around. The cloud

:27:19.:27:22.

will break up across England and Wales tonight and gave a frosty

:27:22.:27:26.

start tomorrow. That is something we have not seemed very much of

:27:26.:27:30.

this autumn. There is a weather front moving in across parts of

:27:30.:27:33.

Scotland so a different story here. Staying frost-free and it will be

:27:33.:27:38.

cloudy and wet in the morning. You can see sunshine in parts of

:27:38.:27:42.

England. There will be more cloud for the afternoon across northern

:27:42.:27:48.

areas. Temperatures recovering to double figures after a load start.

:27:48.:27:52.

Across the south-east corner, we have got some fine sunshine. A real

:27:52.:27:57.

change compared to the cloud of today. Sunny spells across the

:27:57.:28:00.

south-west and temperatures reaching 12 degrees. It will cloud

:28:00.:28:03.

over across Wales for the afternoon, but some brightness holding on

:28:04.:28:09.

towards the border and across parts of North Wales, we might see the

:28:09.:28:12.

odd shower at the end of the afternoon. For Northern Ireland, it

:28:12.:28:17.

will be cloudy and wet with a bit of a breeze. The rain is sinking

:28:17.:28:21.

further south so the afternoon across the north-west Highlands

:28:21.:28:25.

should be drier and brighter, but here we will see some showers.
