here in moscow thanks for joining us it's. accusations of blackmail being leveled at. they've tracked down the post and behind this donald trump wrestling clip which the president tweeted a few days ago the channel is threatening to reveal his identity if he makes another video just like the one. it with thank you and part of what i guess the is now joining me in the studio to discuss this i mean from this network this sounds like very bizarre behavior well it's an incredible story so this guy puts together this little video humorous little thing and then it blows up someone are added to it tribe founded posted on his twitter page and it
gets hundreds of thousands of likes and many people have a love you know they laugh either at c.n.n. or donald trump depending on your prejudice c.n.n. didn't like being laughed at they didn't like it at all and now this next part is mind boggling they launched a manhunt for the original creator of the video and i have no idea who approved this on their end they stalked him online what they did is called dog saying it is digging up personal information on someone or something and then going ahead and publishing it it's used for things like law enforcement for business also for extortion coercion rassmann to online shaming and vigilante justice and the reaction has been you know tremendous even julian assange has come out and condemn this a multi-billion dollar t.v. network blackmailing a private citizen into not making funny videos about it is not journalism c.n.n.
. now they found him they succeeded they started calling him eventually they managed to get in contact with him and c.n.n. admits themselves that he sounded nervous on the telephone of course he was nervous i think terrified is more like it they're threatening to release his information here apologized he said i'll never do this again but it says so right on c.n.n. so article on their web page that c.n.n. reserves the right to publish his information if he stops being sorry publishes information to millions of people so all the crazies in the world know where where he is potentially where to find him you know in such a situation i think most of us would be sorry regardless of what we did just so long as our information isn't published isn't thrown out there now isn't this blackmail isn't this the definition of blackmail the reaction on the internet is
also been huge on reddit where we have this happened one user goes on to say that you know holding private information on the condition of his continued contrition him being sorry amounts to virtually blackmail this is what c.n.n. c.n.n. is doing and c.n.n. doesn't appear to be sorry yet they haven't taken down the article they haven't issued any statement and already people are saying that perhaps they've broken blackmail laws in the united states with this whole story certainly sounds like it's only just getting started here but i guess the if thank you. now with just two days to go before the g. twenty summit begins in hamburg it seems world leaders aren't going to get the warmest of welcomes the host cities already been engulfed in protests. police dispersed in the crowd were fully cut out in a riot pepper spray and water cannons were also used against the anticapitalist
activist officers have also created which protesters set up in one of the city's parks all several of them we understand were arrested or all of a ripple. police everybody is being prepared for a large scale demonstrations and almost certainly violence over the coming days as protesters are 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 sheer number of people that have turned up to protest against this g. twenty they were camping in l. of 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 humbug on these dates be part of these demonstrations in the. fact this be also a lot of criticism over the situation to actually place this g twenty in how the police operation though is while it's being called the biggest in recent german history they have had some successes if you will call them not going in. this but it also gives us a key is just how prepared and interested look at just how prepared the demonstrators are police have been showing off the whole 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 how they believe it and used in the potential riots there it includes things like throwing knives baseball bats brass knuckles telescopic batons as well as precision catapults and out those 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 following all the way through here to try and see what happens i say we are 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 aside from a heavy police presence two special security zones have already been set up in hamburg police are classing the summit as a major challenge with at least eight thousand protesters expected on the streets
of the dog that the german security authorities are preparing with 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 escalating everything quite in the beginning showing a really hard line and this is basically what the protesters are not accepting 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 or. nobody was thinking of that some really it's not allowed to them to overnight in that tent without any reason they were just there. taking away all the demonstrators and their right to be. in this park and basically this is
a kind of escalation which definitely will lead into in the wrong direction. because our international british people don't believe most limbs living in the country have integrated properly or the governments failing to combat prejudice and society according to a new independent report released at a time when media sentiments turning increasingly negative towards muslims here's a quick look at what the seventy six page document looks like. 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 stop the radicalization of.
the media needs to stop treating muslims as victims strengths stop creating in us and them mentality that should get guidelines from it's. on the back of 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 abuse. i wanted to show you some of these headlines and ask you what you make of them. one in five great muslims. for jihad. what do you think of that. load of baloney. because what i think is hard to say. because i don't know how accurate describe this is the people of the students believe that all muslims are tutors disses this is this is feed this is no fluke which is a bit of a danger for everybody you know because once you start stereotyping people. it can become a reality do you think that there should be more regulation that journalists should
be given more rules about how to report on muslims specifically obviously i'm not looking i don't you can do without the regulation i believe so yes i agree completely with that that not threaten press freedom. press freedoms friend anyway so. when journalists. go too far and do report something that's not accurate for the facts of solely paper or whatever i personally think that that journalist should be struck off to defend the watch they have to write people they have to choose looking for for the truth because it is always somebody we invited guests with opposing views to comment on the role of the media in this issue. 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 a 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 integrate it 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. 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 with your general election there are a lot of time in the movement i honestly i'll let you know show me the coroner left
looking for social well then how would you 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 a 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 no it's just i totally deal with the facts of the matter it is the larger us it's a section of radical islamists who have brought fear and terror to the streets of this united kingdom i believe in a free press that has a right to say whatever it wants a free press that can report matters and chooses british media demonizing and persecuting religious minority and in fact the european commission have recommended
regulation of the british media because of as they say overwhelming a slam of fabian racism. in a controversial move canada is reportedly set to pay the eight million dollars compensation and apologize to a convicted murderer who was tortured during his time again. back in two thousand and two omar was captured by the u.s. in afghanistan and detained for the murder of a u.s. soldier he was transferred to guantanamo bay where he was held for more than a decade in twenty ten the canadian supreme court ruled it had been tortured during his detention and later about a year he pleaded guilty to the murder of the u.s. soldier he was transferred to kandahar in twenty twelve to serve the rest of his sentence but was released in twenty fifteen he claims he made his admission of guilt under duress and we spoke to another background and guantanamo prisoner who met her daughter during his detention i was held in the background detention
facility facility in afghanistan when almost whether was first brought into custody and i spent some time with him in bagram i had his i 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 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 it 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 vile by barack obama that he would close it remains open today at present forty one people are still being held and many of the inmates were detained without trial and were tortured we understand nine have died there. when it comes to compensating a former good mood detainee and the convicted murderer. former pentagon analyst michael maloof believes it's outrageous to hand over cash to a killer. 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 it 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 the canadian court now to retrieve that money and to pay them for that for their loss i think it's appropriate more of your world news in just a moment. when else something seems wrong. just don't call. me. yet to see. this thing come out to. end in detroit equals betrayal. when something you find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground .
refugees and that's as more and more migrants are landing in italy in fact just over the last few days alone some twelve thousand newcomers have arrived on italian shores now the route between italy and other member states escalated on tuesday when austria and as planned to deploy troops and armored vehicles to its border rome was infuriated slamming the decision as unjustified and while europe's chiefs keep saying they willing to help if you leave though it's far from convinced. if we do believe we can to leave either italy or greece on its own. and like to say that it want to help to address this issue there is anger that we are left alone czech republic has taken twelve poland in hungary have taken. not good enough you know and earlier in the program i spoke with william spends a spokesman for the un's refugee agency the u.n. h.c.r. he believes it should not be left alone in dealing with this crisis. italy
certainly needs financial help from europe but it also needs solidarity and the rest of europe also needs take their own responsibility that this crisis is affecting very few countries in europe many countries have not seen a single refugee or whole migrant very so what we need is a proper responsibility sharing with you with all countries that are being. from europe i don't think that. when you hold can handle this situation seems that there is a lack of political will from the conclusion. to take on the responsibilities in the in this matter europe. we're talking about five hundred million people we're talking about the richest and most developed economies in the world of course the resources out there but this responsibility needs to be shared equitably among older member states of the european union. south korean and u.s.
forces have fired missiles into the sea of japan in a display of resolve towards north korea. it was part of a joint drill between washington and seoul and according to them the exercise used missiles that can be quite easily deployed it all came in response to north korea's latest missile test on tuesday which the pentagon said was an intercontinental ballistic missile the drill was carried out despite a joint russia china statement demanding compromise from all sides. 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. u.s. army and republic of korea military personnel conducted a combined a van exercise in assets countering north korea's destabilizing and
a move flak sions we talked to several analysts about how u.s. involvement in the north korea crisis has influenced its resolution each time. responds more. and more certain. other. grounds course and this is why are all. the reason i think i think u.s. and south korea are doing is basically flexing their muscles to we're not afraid of my area we also have been bad weapons but what they're doing 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 meyer's 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. and eighty
one year old man has made the two thousand kilometer journey by road all the way from the west of germany to the russian city of st petersburg the trip trip took a little bit longer than you might expect as the pension i did it all on his vintage truck he says it was worth everybody. i came to st petersburg because i wanted to get to know the country and the people to leave. right now because for so many people around me and i see that they're interested in me and want to meet me. through words the feelings i'm experiencing right now.
