the radar. gun owners are on the terror watch list despite the country suffering. the world. international my names you know me and welcome to the program the first g. twenty summit is under way in germany a little earlier the u.s. president vladimir putin for the very first time. so how was that brief introduction between the two leaders. good afternoon well we have finally see the first pictures of the first who. trump
handshake that was followed by mr trump tapping his russian counterpart on the shoulder yes judging by what donald trump said on twitter he was really looking forward to that meeting but that was just a greeting on the sidelines of the g. twenty for him that's what it's usually called still coming up that is of course the talks the head to head get together that they're going to hold behind closed doors which from what i know is going to last for thirty minutes to sixty minutes that is of course coming up in the next few hours well in the meantime back in the u.s. what is. the top headlines well if you look at c.n.n. you will see this kind of headline that russia has been increasing its mayank to the in the u.s. and they're backing up that headline citing some current and former u.s. intelligence officials which apparently know what's going on with the trumpet
ministration. not yet johnson former intelligence officials are now telling c.n.n. the russian spies a stepping up. in the u.s. from family action u.s. authorities have detected an uptick and suspected russian intelligence officers entering the u.s. . now i want to go back to what's actually going on inside the hamburg mess a building that is the venue of the g. twenty summit and we seen the family photo ceremony and those are of course the precious moments when you can see that and to ration well at least for a few minutes when all the leaders get together for that photo if usually we look at the position where the leaders are actually standing of course the german chancellor angela merkel was in the very middle of that on the right sorry that means on her left but we saw it that way there was paying a lot of her post when that was followed by president type. the one so
a lot of our putin was pretty much in the center of that whole crowd like a few years ago when he was at the very edge and that's when a lot of media organizations speculated saying that putin is in some kind of isolation but guess what this time around on the other end of the crowd actually also the very edge of it we saw donald trump but i don't think that news outlets this time around will be talking about some sort of isolation there another interesting moment was when donald trump was standing there. emanuel macron the new president of france ran up to them and really that family photo ceremony quickly turned into this tapping into shoulder ceremony with. donald trump and emanuel magnetron in the spotlight here which was followed by mr putin having a conversation with anglo merkel that was rather quiet but they talked for one or two minutes and these kind of interactions of course they were. very interesting to
watch as you were saying the main the g. twenty session is proceeding in the building behind my shoulder so of course we'll be waiting for any press has details that will come out of that building and i'll be here to tell you all about them have lots to talk to hand over the next forty eight hours and go from the northern german city thank you very much. now this g. twenty summit is expected to be one of the most challenging is key issues have divided world leaders are. some of the contradictions a play. the motto of the g twenty goes shaping the interconnected world but the countries that make up the world's greatest economic powers and awkward fit to say the least it's true that some have been getting along swimmingly take german chancellor merkel and her chinese counterparts to hand diplomacy.
goes toward linking up if you try to add mr trump things fall apart for one terms bromance was she only over courtesy of north korea tensions and trump and merkel don't like either the chancellor doesn't even refer to the us as a friend anymore of course they didn't get along from the very start really the german people look at the overthrowing this woman i don't know what the hell she's thinking it takes wits to convince people with facts instead of using thinks she was person of the year i was supposed to be person of the year and trump isn't the only mismatch for merkel her relationship with everyone turkey's president has been going downhill as of late head of the summit he was told not to bring his troublemaking bodyguards and was reportedly denied venue's to make a public address and that wasn't much of a surprise really after erda want to kiss berlin nazi practices potential for
conflict was. we want to avoid additional reasons for conflict now if we try to put into the mix he fits great with china but not so much with merkel sanctions over the crisis in ukraine are in their way and the same issues keep russia and the e.u. as a whole from connecting the e.u. and its turn is that odds with italy as its promises to help deal with the refugee influx have yet to come to fruition meaning yet another disconnect there we are left to the public has taken twelve coda to the groove taken. good enough now the king of saudi arabia decided to simply let the table and skip the summit altogether . as for the remaining g twenty members they're just as mismatched to the idea of a completed jigsaw puzzle with the g twenty members shaping an interconnected world things almost impossible it's much more likely individual elements will find each other never coming together with everyone to make the full picture. washington d.c. . well it was an early start for on t g twenty protesters in. police say
that they are expecting as many as one hundred thousand people to turn up later in the german city where they summit is taking place several protesters have been injured during the demonstrations well as over one hundred fifty police officers as well security forces use water callinan pepper spray to this protesters who threw bottles stills and flares out the officers who also violent clashes yesterday took to me when the sun went to. thank you i. was.
well activists been protesting against the two day meeting of world leaders who are expected to discuss challenges like terrorism climate change our europe correspondent peter all of her has been following the release for us in hamburg. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. we're seeing another line of police marching doubleton running basically away from where that was taking place as far as i can tell and i'm from that. i've never seen anything leaf had fights about squatters houses and ola i've never seen anything like that leigh aggression the as far as i can tell purposelessness is that of blood and english yes it is now it is now. never seen and have my face heard of mace and then the thing that is a militia. just
behind me you can see some smoldering remains then that's from a trash fire that was stuck says. that is a. sports car i believe that's been torched here now there are. eight seems moments of small bits of violence and what you saw will also last time is just how quickly it can start and then the police come in to try and put it out but whenever they put it out in one place it seems to pop up elsewhere we understand from the police that they with ordering people to remove their masks they refusing to do so then water cannon we used pepper spray was used. well despite there being a whole load of stories about potential violence coming from demonstrators in the build up to this large gathering we have been hearing from one member of the local
polman here and how much is about the role the police could play in provoking violence yesterday was a pic demonstration twenty to thirty souls and people that was very very peaceful and i was the same and and heated was nearly the same so. from which we're come today in the evening i talked to those who. appealed for this demonstration and they say we want a peaceful demonstration but i few there will be an escalation because the strategy of the police is not to deescalate if as it should be and might be those people who want different. way of contradiction as well hear the crowd chanting away their. building chance going on all under the watchful eye if we move the camera over here over the watchful eye of a lot of police officers. which is to keep a bit vigilant here because we are seeing. flour being thrown at the police just as
you can see there we're actually right between the police and the demonstrators right now so we're going to try and get out of the way just for moment while i'm talking to you not the best place to be if. he has a huge call the police officers that's marching through the city then leading the demonstrators they're only going to be allowed to go in the directions that the police want them to and the result is what we've seen it's we've seen violent clashes with the police we've seen set on fire. as well exactly the situation we have at the moment right now. peter over there painting a picture on the eve of the g twenty summit in hamburg well let's go live now i to independent british european parliament member jealous atkinson for her take on the summit high jealous. the five in the u.s. and russian indeed many other places as well is that meeting between donald trump
president followed by a putin how do you see that going what do you think is going to come out of the very first meeting between the pair. but it's brilliant because it's the only game in town is there any story in town where the two most powerful men in the world are going to. be talking and they're going to be talking about the threat of western civilization as trump was talking about in poland i was in warsaw last week and i was in moscow two weeks ago talking about this very subject high on their priority is going to be the defeat of isis because that is our common common enemy defeat of terrorism security threats and security is linked to the nation state space taking back control of our borders stopping the flow of migration out of africa and the middle east and trying to get to the middle east that's what they should be talking about to get the paris climate change agreement let the europeans and the others see a war going on about but that's not the greatest threat that we face at the moment
putin has worked with previous u.s. leaders of course barack obama george w. bush bill clinton. likely is a working relationship with the current u.s. leader do you think. there's more in common with putin and trump than there ever walls with the previous presidents particularly obama who is just a supine. he was just a puppet for the rest of the world leaders but these two men actually understand each other. trump has written the art of the deal piecing gets the art of the deal putin is trading on the world stage with energy trying to do business in spite of the sanctions levied against him trump understands that he's a businessman so i think the art of the deal come on guys what i say to them is you can do this this summit really has grasped the public's imagination in years gone by it's just gone by you know people are saying oh it's boring meetings of government leaders etc this really has grasped imagination what do you expect from
the summit what are the main points of contention because there seems to be quite a few. well the e.u. well obviously want the paris climate change agreements on the table but trump has said he's not signing up to that that's a side issue that's very many things that the e.u. would like. on the table but it's just got to be discussed the issue is terra security defeat of isis and joining together in the nuclear weapons that these two countries have got between them can just comply us all to smithereens let's work together you understand each other i think the personalities are very very similar and they can do the deal in the room when they don't have to when president doesn't have the hawks behind him and there are other it says in the world with president putin i think get on the rest of the majestic slide show just briefly violent protests something taking place as we've seen in hamburg against the g twenty why is the reaction so intense this time around. because it's hysteria that's lit.
up by the left wing the people who actually support people like president president jeremy corbyn the opposition leader country where he's got momentum behind him and they actively encourage violence like it violence on my twitter feed we're going to have this when trump comes to london as well and that getting these flash mobs to. go out and cause as much trouble i understand. he's actually. being kept prisoner in the hotel over there and she's not allowed to join the other wives at the moment i mean this is particularly directed at her and it's good to see that the police are actually taking the morn and they've got to have their faces uncovered if you live in a democracy i'm sorry but you want to protest you cannot wear face coverings we want to see who you are a president germy corben that's a whole other conversation for another day journalists are considered independent
british m.b.p. thank you very much. after months of reporting on alleged russian meddling in the u.s. election using all names sources c.n.n. seems to be changing its attitudes towards the nitty wall of the channel's own political omelets now people do not have the right to stay anonymous it was in response to the backlash the network faced for threatening to reveal the man behind a viral mean featuring president trump wrestling this c.n.n. logo with more or not here is killin it. c.n.n. now thinks that we the people do not have the right to be anonymous this is how kirsten powers their political analyst explained it in a tweet. people do not have a right to stay anonymous so they can spew their racist massage honest homophobic garbage now that's an interesting argument coming from a network that's been running stories about trump based on unnamed sources for months based on anonymous sources according to this source who spoke on the
condition of anonymity anonymous sources are the basis of most truthful reporting oftentimes you do have to gather information using anonymous sources say can i use your name and they say no can i use you as an anonymous source a source familiar with the matter they say yes and then we report the information on the air we heard c.n.n. use this phrase so much it's actually spawned a number of online memes sure c.n.n. protects their online sources but the way they see it if you post something online that they consider to be offensive they have the right to reveal your personal information to the public something that could actually put a person in harms way oh and they get to decide what's considered to be offensive as well apologized for some of those other houses that were racist anti-semitic and that is not publishing to users name because of his apology think bribery in reverse they get said to me say listen if you are if you ever attract that reddit thing there's a couple of bucks for you that would be bribery kind of sort of but if i was
a do you listen if you don't retract that right at the i'm going to expose you i'm going to docs you i mean let everybody know where you live how to let people know where you live what you said things you've said perhaps you might be politically correct things that might cause you problems with your job it's almost a blackmail coercion but it's unprecedented c.n.n. may be a powerful news agency but just to proclaim to them the policemen of what's considered to be offensive in. the end u.s. law has the final say caleb mup an artsy new york a concerning connection between gun ownership and the terror watch list has been revealed in france we've got the details of after this quick break.
income inequality wage stagnation gerrymandering of political districts polarization you know the lack of effectiveness in congress there are these are well documented trends going back decades and now they're really acute unmanifest to the point where people describe the system is being seized with a kind of paralysis. called the feel. every the world experience the. world. according to jess.
twenty minutes into the program welcome back france's interior minister has revealed the worrying figure that around one hundred registered gun owners in the country are on the terror watch list. i have asked local police to identify the registered owners of firearms on terror watch lists we have identified about one hundred people and the author of caesar taking action to correct the situation this appears to be a significant dysfunction. well the announcement comes just a couple of days after the latest terror attack in central park this when a car full of weapons on gas canisters rammed into a police van. the attacker was the only person killed in the incident the thirty one year old man was a known gun enthusiast and also on a terror watch list french journalist and author of the book just friends alexander
mendell says the legal gun ownership by people on the terror list isn't even the biggest concern. he shows that the. carelessness of french bureaucracy you have ten thousand people that are registered on the watch the least on the. least and you have about one percent of them that legalese own weapons the frightening thing about that is that they have access to shooting ranges where they go to to train where they sometimes even have to. meet local police policemen and they talk with them and they have information about security it's not about the weapons themselves it's more about the fact that they are they have access to these shooting ranges where they the can train to shoot. living on an
american arts and crafts retail chain is being accused of acquiring ancient artifacts which have been smuggled from iraq the items include tablets containing writing in an ancient script called hugh ni for use of years ago in mesopotamia which is now a part of modern iraq also among the artifacts of clay object known as a seal used as a seal excuse me known as a bowl a prosecutors say hobby lobby agreed to by thousands of artifacts in twenty ten for one point six million dollars the u.s. justice department says the company was even warned by an expert that the acquisition of such cultural property from iraq carries a risk that the objects may have been looted hobby lobby has agreed to pay a three million dollars fine and will have to give the items back here's the firm statement on the controversy the company was new to the world of acquiring these
items and did not fully appreciate the complex cities of the acquisitions process this resulted in some regrettable mistakes only illegal sale of the ancient treasures is also recruited for idol which makes many millions of dollars from selling them although the terror groups more notoriously known for destroying priceless pieces from history. whoa who are. also not. just. the looters themselves obviously these are the people on the ground who are doing the digging up and the looting they more importantly they are responding to the mother but this is a market with a supply and a demand and the supply is driven by the month so for as long as it's going to be
the month from western countries these goods are going to flow and looters will loot and they will dig up the stuff and motor more concerning for us is that. there's not a clear connection between terrorist organizations like isis like al qaida. like taliban and the profiting from this looting and so it is even more egregious if you will it is even more concerning for us that people who know this and yet they still continue to buy these goods and sell them on friday july the seventh here in moscow i'll be back at the top of the hour with more global headlines been in the meantime there is no escaping that we're living in a wired world these days a former pentagon advisor tells so fishermen out say about all the challenges that that brings momentarily.
it was only a matter of time before congressional democrats would attempt to impeach and remove donald trump from the presidency well it's happening at this point it is unlikely this endeavor will succeed but this isn't stopping. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation. every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive in. my body gets. produced itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity. because it helps people that's one of the side effects is that it. puts money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and
in today's interconnected world this threat that we're facing are crossing borders and evolving to undermine security immigration economic crisis terrorism all impact on a global scale. find a unified approach to the problems while we ask a former u.s. government adviser and. research fellow at the national university of singapore. growing numbers of migrants storming the shores of europe terror attacks and western cities inspired by events thousands of miles away globalization comes with a price and it's already disrupting existing power structures with the public
showing interest support for protectionist forces in major elections can globalization be doing more harm than good is an unstoppable process is will the new wave of resistance it's advance. great to have you with us in our program thank you so we'll start with german platers latest initiative it wants to make africa one of the main topics for the g twenty the idea is to spur investment to live in poverty. in africa to europe but this initiatives have already been in place before and nothing really came out of it to thing to watch this time well maybe africa as a personal thing else that's going on so actually you have taken the words right out of my about because it is not the first africa or migration or infrastructure or poverty alleviation or either g. twenty priority. or you priorities and of course germany and other major western powers that are needed.
