the headlines on international protests against the g twenty summit break out in the hamburg days before world leaders even a ride in the german city. an independent report says british people don't believe muslims are integrating into society while the government's accused of failing to fight islamophobia in the media. and come to reportedly set to pay a multi-million dollar compensation to a former guantanamo bay prison convicted murderer for being tortured during his detention.
in morning on wednesday here in moscow thanks for joining us this is r.t. international. two days now to go before the g. twenty summit begins in hamburg it seems world leaders aren't going to get the warmest open welcomes the host cities already been engulfed in protests. i i. policed dispersing the crowd was fully about the riot pepper spray and water cannons rule so used against the anticapitalist activists officers have created which protesters set up in one of the city's parks all several of them we understand were arrested a peter all of reports. police everybody had been prepared for a large scale demonstrations and violence over the coming days as protest is a right for the g. twenty but this one really caught a lot of people by surprise and it seems to have come about through the she had a number of. people that have turned up to protest against this g.
twenty they were camping in l a park in hamburg and police decided that there was no way that was going to happen this tent city that was being set up there was dispersed by the police with some of the demonstrators arrested they fought back pepper spray was used police in full riot gear from the pictures we've seen going in there as well some quite ugly scenes very early on we've been told to expect serious demonstrations out these g. twenty this g. twenty summits we've seen fly is all around the capital here in berlin also around other cities and other nations i've seen saying come to hamburg on these dates be part of these demonstrations these. days of.
the. fact that the so a lot of criticism over the decision to actually place this g. twenty in the house the police operation though is well it's being called the biggest in recent german history and they have had some successes if you will call them that going into this but it also gives us a key is just how prepared and interesting look into just how prepared the demonstrators are police have been showing off a haul of weapons that they've confiscated in the city of rostock that was supposed to be part of a cache that was going to be taken to hamburg they believe and used in the potential riots there it includes things like throwing knives baseball bats brass knuckles telescopic batons as well as precision catapults now those are weapons that police have said could cause well really catastrophic injuries they have very serious weapons in the right hands we're going to be follow. all the way through
here to try and see what happens i say we're expecting violence we weren't expecting it so soon it does seem though that the protests against this g twenty may far eclipse the political and diplomatic this hitchens that may be made cheering the summit now aside from a heavy police presence two special security zones have been set up in hamburg and police are classing the summit as a major challenge with at least eight thousand protesters expected on the streets of the doj from the german security authorities are preparing with a great diligence for their biggest police operation this year this of course concerns the hamburg police which is strongly supported by the state police and the federal police might have become much more ready because the police is also doing a big huge mistake by escalating everything quite in the beginning showing a really hard line and this is basically what the protesters are not accepting it was decided that the protesters can stay with their camp inside of part and of
course they have to overnight there because most of these protesters are young people they cannot afford the message expensive hotel prices so. nobody was thinking of that suddenly it's not allowed to them to overnight in that tent and without any reason they were just taking away all the demonstrators and their right to be. in this park and basically this is a kind escalation which definitely will lead to in the wrong direction. british people don't believe muslims living in the country have integrated properly or the governments failing to combat prejudice in society and that's according to a new independent report released at a time when media sentiments turning increasingly negative towards muslims and we broke down a seventy six page long report into thirty seconds. the
british government and u.k. muslims suffer from a broken relationship anti muslim prejudice should be treated as a hate crime is something akin to anti semitism. britain needs a better anti radicalization strategy involving more muslim inputs the current one isn't trusted and isn't working on new present strategy will challenge the extremist ideology and to stop the radicalization founder of all people. need to stop treating muslims as victims strengths to stop creating in us and them mentality that should get guidelines for this. bike off the latest wave of anti muslim sentiment expressed in the british tabloids polly boy has been finding out what people in london think about regulating media to avoid such abuse i wanted to show you some of these headlines and ask you what you make of them.
one hundred five great. luis years for jihad and. what do i think of the. loadable only. because what i think it's hard to say. because i don't know how accurate this francis de thing misinterpreted fairly in the media in the u.k. . you know normally you don't have to say muslims this is. the poor. they don't hear. british people to understand what's happening in the war and you think the newspapers sometimes make it sound the people of the students believe that all muslims are terrorists this is this is this is feed this is not true which is a bit of a danger for everybody you know because once you start there are the four. it can become a reality. do you think that there. i'd be more regulation
that journalists should be given more rules about how to pull on muslims specifically obviously i'm not looking then you can do about the regulation i believe so yes i agree completely with that that not threaten press freedom. press freedoms friend anyone so hard to pull off thing is just common sense. you know be provocative when you're dealing with something like this when journalists. go too far and do an live report something that's not accurate for the facts or solely in paper or whatever i personally think. that journalists should be struck off to defend the watch they have to watch it because they have to chip in full of the truth because it is a list full stop and it's this this issue is off it's coming that you were in when when live we invited various guests with opposing views to comment on the role of the media with this mission. the problem we have at the minute with muslim
integration into the u.k. is that not only have we got incredible amount of media corruption manipulation skewing far right leanings the rise of the far right across the media and i want to be scams this report suggests is that there is a responsibility on british society to help integrate to approach muslims not as suspects not as terrorists but the problem we have is over and over again will be given examples of muslim extremist terrorism we hear about burkas we'll hear about muslim radicalization of this report looks at it through the wrong end of the telescope i believe some muslims seek to have no relationship whatsoever with british society they have chosen not to enter griot why should it be up to british society to extend to them when they are quite a section of them are quite clearly not interested in our traditions and respecting our laws reality is this most today are well integrated a british society muslims are here to stay we are not anywhere you will not get to
shut the borders down and overwhelming as we saw your general election there i look i mean the movement i honestly i don't like you know show me the corner left looking for social well then what i like managed looking for this looking for change looking to get your parents talking about foreign policy austerity i'm trying to point out that there's a section of those limbs who seem to have a problem with so much that characterizes britain modern british society the pluralism the acceptance of people who have different sexual preferences the except i mean the desire to have shari'a law which apparently one in three muslims want that seems to me essentially inconceivable with the desire to integrate anti muslim hysteria is being fuel is being pumped primed in british society led by the media and far right hate preachers now it's just i truly deal with the facts of the matter it is a large section of radical islamists who have brought fear. her to the streets of this united kingdom i believe in
a free press that has the right to say whatever it wants a free press that can report matters in hollywood chooses british media demonising and persecuting religious minority and in fact the european commission have recommended regulation of the british media because of as they say overwhelming islam of fabian racism. in a controversial move canada is reportedly set to pay eight million dollars compensation and apologize to a convicted murderer who was tortured during his time at guantanamo bay back in two thousand and two or was captured by u.s. special forces in afghanistan and detained at the bagram air base for the murder of a u.s. soldier later that year he was transferred to guantanamo bay where he was held for more than a decade in january twenty ten the canadian supreme court ruled that it had been tortured during his detention later that year he pleaded guilty to the murder of the soldier he was transferred to kandahar and twenty twelve to serve the rest of his sentence it was released in may twenty fifth in pending an appeal of his guilty
plea which he claimed was made under duress we spoke to another guantanamo bay prison who met during his detention. i was held in the background detention facility facility in afghanistan when almost her was first brought into custody and i spent some time with him in bagram i had his eye had been shot out he was blind in one one eye he had huge exit wounds in his shoulder and just above his chest and he was a just turned fifteen he was just turned fifteen from being fourteen he was tortured in front of me he was abused and screamed at and shouted at spat at and stripped naked and his his treatment was was was a war crime there's no the tried way to describe it the whole issue in the beginning had been the canadian government complicity in his torture it's this book recorded video evidence that the government was physically present that sent members of ceases the intelligence services to go and interrogate him while he was
a child while he was suffering from these horrific wounds and everybody who's in guantanamo soldiers guards and prisoners knew that this is not the way to treat a child since two thousand and two almost eight hundred people have been held at guantanamo bay which despite a valid by barack obama but he would close it remains open to a president forty one people are still being held and many of the inmates were detained without trial and were tortured we understand nine have reportedly died there and when it comes to compensating or former good mood detainee and convicted murderer a former pentagon analyst michael maloof believes it's outrageous to hand over cash to work. the reality is he should not be compensated he did kill and americans and he worked with his father who was closely linked to al qaeda and osama bin laden is just lucky he was picked up and was and is still alive today and he should just move on and for the traditional government to prepare
a liberal progressive government to come out and offer compensation as they did a few years ago to another canadian who was similarly get mo i think is. over the top i think that the fact that the family of the soldier who was killed is going to canadian court now to retrieve that money and to pay them for that for their loss i think it's appropriate. more the world headlines just about. anyone else so something seems wrong. just don't call. me. yet to see. these things come out. and in detroit equals betrayal.
to have you with us today south korea and u.s. forces have missiles into the sea of japan in a display of results towards north korea it was part of a joint drill between washington and seoul and according to them the exercise used missiles that can quote be easily deployed it all came in response to north korea's latest missile test on tuesday which a pentagon said was an intercontinental ballistic missile. reports. north korea launches a missile into the sea of japan provocatively what is the united states and south korea do they launch their own missiles exactly in the same provocative way into the sea of japan there's no moral superiority here there's no presence of more moral superiority it's like a childish playground fight where somebody had somebody and then somebody has to hit someone back. it's you know a tooth for a tooth and nail for a nail and donald trump has made very clear what he thinks about the situation
there would be any compromise it will be donald trump urging the chinese to apply more pressure on north korea and it's the american effort here the american plan consists of forcing north korea to back down whether north korea wants to or not and that is in sharp contrast to what russia and china said yesterday their proposed plan you know to solve this crisis the signs suggest north korea voluntarily declares a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches and that the u.s. and south korea refrain from joint drills the message is simple you stop doing provocative things and you stop doing provocative things it takes two to tango to to deescalate and that is what russia and china urging that all sides involved calmed down back down and all of this will stop but they also mentioned that you know these constant tests of these constant war games they only feed each other
then you have the american missile defense system that stationed in the area that does nothing to deter north korea in its pursuit of nuclear weapons in its pursuit of ballistic missiles all it does is stimulate north korea because it needs weapons that can defeat america's missile shield which is stationed on its doorstep and threatens not only north korea but china and russia in hearing you have a problem the united the americans say that they're dedicated to peace in the region yet everything seemingly that they've been doing has achieved the exact opposite. we talked to our several analysts about how u.s. involvement in the north korea crisis has influenced its resolution which. responds more. and more certain.
and this is. all. the reason i think what the u.s. and south korea are doing is basically flexing their muscle to show we're not afraid of mario we also have big bad weapons but what they're doing is is is answering fire with fire in a region that is a powder keg slightest miscalculation on the korean peninsula can trigger a conflict that basically mieris the entire region in a protracted war that could have catastrophic consequences not only for the region but also for the global economy and that is not in anyone's interest. tony twenty four hours here in moscow the e.u. has announced more funding for italy which is struggling to handle the surging wave of migrants coming from africa however italy along with the united nations are calling for other european states to share the responsibility of housing all the
refugees and that more and more migrants are landing in italy every day and in fact over the past few days alone some twelve thousand newcomers have arrived on italian shores now the rao between italy and other member states escalated on tuesday in austria analysis plan to deploy troops and armored vehicles to the border rome was infuriated slimy the decision as unjustified or europe's chiefs keep saying they willing to help italy though for the meantime is far from convinced. you haven't interviewed him we do believe we can to leave either italy or greece on its own. you can give up and i'd like to say that it want to help you to lead to address this issue there is anger that we are left alone czech republic has taken twelve poland and hungary have taken very clear not good enough you know french national front member patricio shunyo on believes each stage shouldn't be forced to obey brussels decisions about migrants military in crisis is is just just terrible and
the european union so many of responsible things look very grim for poor it's of the. europeans in the european union has been since inefficient and people who are dealing with the situation i think it is very urgent that the european countries realize they need to be seen this is back into their own hands and they need to take. these influences hold in hungary have said we don't want migrants in our country we cannot work out for them i don't completely know the way to do so i think that. the right to determine for themselves which migrants they want to grow it is not to depend on brussels to dictate to the who should be coming to their senses. portugal's president has admitted a military warehouse close to the capital of lisbon has been rated officials haven't given any specific details of the leaks have been made or made claims about
the amount of weaponry and munitions that have gone missing president's call for an investigation adding it's not the first raid of its kind we must the really investigate all the facts similar incidents have been reported in other nato countries over the past two years. well the newspaper reports suggest more than one hundred fifty grenades were taken from the warehouse along with a large quantity of ammunition and plastic explosives portugal's defense minister has one of the weapons are likely to find their way onto the black market a nato report stated back in twenty eleven but if such a thing what happened weapons any means munitions would likely be used in terror attacks and r.t. has contacted nato on the matter and it confirmed the incident did not happen at a nato facility they also said responsibility lies with the portuguese authorities to investigate and former british army officer chris hunter agrees the stolen weaponry could well be used for terrorism. now just getting into these sort of
storage facilities themselves requires you know a significant level of knowledge deadly a professional job if you like. if you try to have a match the security systems that are in place without knowing how to get into the mall without having you know the necessary keys and entry equipments then you know they're very difficult to bypass so i think you know ultimately this is a well planned pre-planned probably with some sort of inside influence type job and if that's the case then i would imagine they had the lists every logistics to support them in removing him transporting these munitions and then it was stolen what we're seeing here of course is the opportunity and the potential for terrorists and criminals so use conventional military ordnance which is you know significantly more powerful and more dangerous. and eighty one year old man has made the long journey by road all the way from the west of germany to the
russian city of st petersburg with a trip took much more time the you might imagine as the pensioner did it all on a tractor he says it was worth every moment. i came to st petersburg because i wanted to get to know the contrie and the people to leave here. i mean these are overwhelmed right now because for so many people around me and i see that they're interested in me and want to meet me icons put into words the feelings that i'm experiencing right now.
joining us here at r.t. international coming up next on this network discussing the powder keg of the middle east crosstalk. as a financial survival guide stacey let's learn about fill out let's say i'm not so i guess. the fight spot thank you for taking. on the story that's. slavery. absolutely no dubrovnik venice our will fix travel destinations so it must be nice to live or is it.
crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life before us on the celestial was such a traditional story. by him sometime soon as we finally saw a school. while the city's tried desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations collect the profit of what goes up it will probably go on the dole coffee cup at home in the bushes up the on saabs knock up the supposed to me about. my life. as a tourist phobia will fail fall into an identity.
low in welcome across all things considered i'm peter lavelle every once in a while crosstalk has a look at the big picture of a story in this case it is the middle east one of the current defining trends who are the winners and losers and how is this volatile and very dangerous region changing and is american influence on the decline. cross talking the shifting sands in the middle east i'm joined by my guest so i mean nate are in beirut he's a middle east analyst and in erbil we have joe lauria he is an independent journalist right gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want i always appreciated let me go to you first joe my introduction was very very broad. from your standpoint and you're in iraq right now what what
are the most important trends affecting the middle east because there's so much going on right now unfortunately particularly the united states it's overshadowed by what i call fake news i want to do real news on this program here joe your thoughts were how is the middle east changing go ahead it's very easy to get lost in all the details like this so friendly complex to. in syria i think the overall if you're looking for a really big picture you have to look at u.s. iranian relations and in that in the subtext of that saudi raining relations and below that the standoff between saudi arabia baccarin egypt and against qatar which i think could be a prelude to conflict with iran trying to bring qatar into their own camp into the g.c.c. camp they've been too close to iran so i think that conflict again between syria and iran it's a sushi is in between saudi arabia and iran overshadows the entire region their sectarian proxy wars their conflict has to be.
