you know what but. he also in the days of. the german city resulting in the words of injuries among protesters despite the trouble in the streets there was progress made in president putin much anticipated first meeting resulting in a serious cease fire agreement which is now in effect. i. c n n is accused of blackmailing the creator of the president trump wrestling clip threatening to reveal his identity something similar.
with the top stories from the past seven days on right up to the moment developments as well welcome to the weekly international i mean and only in the german city of. the cost stuff during during some of the most violent scenes ever to accompany a g. twenty summit over fifty thousand protesters gathered on saturday. for the world's most powerful leaders. riots.
a radical left wing protesters from across europe is on looted shops in hamburg the on rest over the past number of days house reportedly left at least two hundred officers injured. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. i can see the main body of the crowd and i this but he and his mates i am lacing every bomb seriously so you can have that really hurt you a kosovan is what can you please describe for me what happened where you will as far as i could tell there were attack in the demonstration with no reason. she's part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also to understand the message they
want to send me his violence is simply tragic. that is a qassam form sportscar belief that's been. roaming the moments of as small bits of violence and the police come in to try and put it out war to come and we used pepper spray was used. to. hear the crowd chanting away than sci fi she stuff build avanti fought chants going on all under the watchful eye if we move the camera over here over the watchful eye of a lot of police officers i did. not wish to keep a bit vigilant here because we are seeing already what's the us flower 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 well 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 the demonstrators. i think. it's continued on days over the last twenty four hours now as you can see just behind me does actually. more water cannon arriving at the intersection where i am . they will say a quiet tense scene here just a long time ago whereby a number of bottles were being thrown the police responded with watertown and we see. there is certainly a very large police presence a helicopter flying overhead many other emergency vehicles around but there's also an awful lot of demonstrators here. this is the scene in hamburg as you can see a heavy police presence there just marching past me the older came through from
police that this base in the section here this junction had to be cleared or is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see walt's account and being used every time they try and come close to this intersection they get sprayed back. you can see just over here the advertising hoardings have been vandalized there behind me is a bank that was all it was locked up but it's now also been all smashed up over my right shoulder there i spoke to some of the shop owners that have based here about what they have plans were some were saying they were going to pull them up some saying they were going to wait it out and stay inside the store twenty four hours a day some owners are covering windows so they don't get broken a lot of places are closed so we couldn't work productively because a total collapse of transportation was in my opinion you can't organize the g. twenty two in a left wing liberal area especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators
it is one of the major centers full counter-culture in germany one of the major centers indeed for the fall left here just over my left shoulder is a place called they are well to floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot. the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place so. we got the thoughts of hugh bronson from the alternative for germany party he say's the violence was not a great surprise as the city has a reputation for being radically leftist. how big is well known for its left wing and. sometimes extremist views so this shouldn't have been
a surprise for anybody really but i believe that two groups of people who actually traveled. to take part in this one group is very peaceful they want to stage their protest they perfectly in their right every german has the right to assemble freely without weapons it's part of the constitutional law the second group. they didn't want to have any peaceful demonstrations they were set for trouble you have these i call them demolition tourists they travel from all over europe and all all of the germany to take part in a protest that is bound to be violent that is bound to destroy shops looting of supermarkets but they had no interest whatsoever in a peaceful protest and sadly this small but very violent group is now attracting all the attention and of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not how you should stage your prostate your protest should always always be
peaceful to be heard away from the violence one of the most watched in countries at the g. twenty was the russian president's first face to face meeting with donald trump and the meeting brought about a potential breakthrough for the syria conflict as well as the leaders agreed to establish a cease fire in the country which. come into effect on is largely said to be holding our teams emily sue brings us more on the following the first face to face meeting between president president putin the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has announced that the u.s. and russia has agreed on a new cease fire in the south western of syria that would take into effect at noon damascus time on july ninth take a listen to the details of this new cease fire so that the school that's russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreement for syria the cease fire will come into effect in three areas there. and it will come into force on the ninth of july the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the cease fire and ensuring humanitarian
access to the areas initially security in these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation with the u.s. and jordan now these three southern provinces that lavrov mentioned also share a border with jordan which is also part of this new agreement however another country that these three southern provinces which i believe can show you on a map now on the screen now also share a border with israel and this area includes that this golan heights of this area between syria and israel and according to the u.n. is a syrian territory occupied by israel since the sixty's and over the recent weeks there's been a surge of quasi border exchanges of fire and this new the escalation zone can potentially avoid such incidents in the future u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson he said this new agreement shows is the first indication that the u.s. and russia can work together and cooperate with each other in syria the russian president vladimir putin he also expressed an optimistic tone over this take a listen. regarding whether the u.s. position on syria has changed i think it's become more pragmatic in general it
doesn't seem to change but there is now an understanding that we can achieve a lot with the united effort now bear in mind that this is no doubt a breakthrough in terms of u.s. russia relations showing that the two countries can work with each other in syria however it be too optimistic to see this as a breakthrough of the entire syrian conflict as. the whole you know prior to this is numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless cease fire happening don and both sides have accused each other of violating them and so stairs there's still a lot of answer to questions regarding the syrian conflict and one of the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government. let's delve into this story further know with jamal wakim who's a professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university in beirut always good to have you on the program welcome and can i put it to you how influential can any such true speed without directly involving forces on the ground directly and remember we don't have any agreement yet do we between series
government and the armed opposition following talks in cassocks. well i believe. it should be noted first the ceasefire was first declared few days ago by the syrian army after the great advance. in southern syria also in eastern syria this put the jordanians and israeli is. in front of a complete where the syrian army supporters maybe the. fighters and iranian fighters got close to the demilitarized. zone in heights which would present a threat for israeli security promise the israeli point of view later on during the summit i believe that the russians in concerted. effort with the syrians presented this. as
a trophy to the president to the american president to prove to him to prove to his opponents that. the united states could get something out of cooperation with the with russia and that's why i believe that the russians and the americans were able to get to this. zone. because we know that washington really is still sending those contradictory messages on the future of the syrian government it does beg the question how possible is any real progress. well this could be the first step to woods talks to food what's for the dogs. to teach. in order to a peaceful resolution for the sitting crisis but this is still a first step should be tested it's a long way ahead. so i believe that we wouldn't be able to eat i find it so you
should put the city in crisis before years from now maybe one or two years at least because there are a lot of obstacles specially from the american side and there are lot of opposition to the american president going on from the day he was able to reach this agreement with another man to put in their wedded new was leaked to the media in the united states of meetings between his. son in law of done on time and some of his aides with russian diplomats. criticism followed from tom foreman so i believe that there are a lot of obstacles that. the russians would also test the intentions of the americans maybe trump inside it wouldn't be willing to go into. and i give him an yet before trying to test all the his cards maybe to get back to the deal with
the americans ok with that action story over syria to relate the city in crisis to other crisis maybe we could get. somebody deed over the other. night ukraine. or you know iraq so i believe that we still have a long way ahead of us ok jamal wakim professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university in beirut always good to have your company thank you. for following the g. twenty talks about amir putin gave his personal impression of his american counterpart. it's a trump and die of established a relationship it may sound strange but trump in real life is completely different to when he's on t.v. he's very businesslike and easy to talk with i think if we continue to work together in the way we did yesterday we'll be able to restore relations between the
u.s. and russia and bring cooperation between our countries to a new level two different donald trump's you heard it right that's how the russian president puts it but mr putin met only one donald trump in that blue room on friday and as we found out from right still or should there was some positive chemistry between these two men there was so much to talk about all these issues. just about everything got touched on to one degree or another and i think there was just such a level of engagement and exchange neither one of them wanted to stop sure more times i had to remind the president. of the door and i think maybe the first lady at one point to see if she could get us out of there and i didn't work either well if that blood man who spent more than two hours talking to a lot of my approach was the real donald trump then there is potential for the lot
awaited political thaw says a lot of our approach going back to the many issues that the two presidents discussed of course they spent a while talking about syria which resulted in the announcement of a breakthrough cease fire in three districts of the country at the russian president's press conference we heard him called the deal a giant step well when it comes to the american media it seems that they were mostly worried about whether their president would put pressure on flat improvement over allegations of russian interference in the u.s. presidential race donald trump brought up that issue several times a lot of our putin kept replying that wash up wasn't involved and at the flat of a. press conference one journalist asked him whether russia was planning to meddle in the chairman elections but. you ask a very provocative questions i've already answered this we didn't interfere in the u.s. election so why do we need to interfere in the german election we have
a long history of friendship with germany it's our largest trading partner in europe we have many joint projects so why would we interfere in their internal affairs well i guess we will have to hear something from donald trump in the next days besides the word tremendous that he used to describe this meeting i had a tremendous meeting. with president bush and we had a really great meetings with a lot of people having a lot while the world leaders body language at the g. twenty two a lot of attention a network with their country parts. well
i think the u.s. russia aleisha ship is very important. and we need to make it better there's no question about it we need to cooperate on so many issues on nuclear weapons shiria on iran on energy on trade. to the public well. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final. we can all middle of the room.
hello again c.n.n. find itself sparking an internet mean more this week it tracked on the creator of a clip featuring donald trump wrestling the news networks and the go the video had been tweeted by the president a few days earlier needing c.n.n. to say it encouraged violence against reporters taking up the story. so this guy makes a humorous little video and then it blows up someone edited it donald trump found it and posted it on his twitter feed i ha it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had a love c.n.n. did not like being laughed at not one bit they launched
a manhunt for the original creator of the video what they did is dog saying it is digging up private information on someone or with something and then publishing it can be used for law enforcement for business extortion coercion harassment online shaming and vigilante justice the reaction has been furious even songes waited on the matter saying that potentially what c.n.n. did may be a crime a multi-billion dollar t.v. network blackmailing a private citizen into not making funny videos about it is not journalism c.n.n. and c.n.n. succeeded they found the original creator and he has since apologized and promised never to make another video critical of c.n.n. channel says when they finally talk to him he sounded nervous as well he might
c.n.n. is threatening to publish his identity for all the loonies in the world to know if he ever stops being sorry it's right there on their website c.n.n. reserves the right to publish his identity if he stops being sorry if anything changes isn't that the deficient of blackmail in the backlash that followed this c.n.n. journalist who originally wrote about the meme designers identity tweeted this response to the blackmail claims he sees the line was misinterpreted and that they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still damage was done on the internet hit uk with even more c.n.n. bashing me.
attorney and former u.s. congressman michael flanagan thing c.n.n. shouldn't have responded the way it did to what was obviously a joke c.n.n. has overestimated their capacity yet once again and they'll be having an endless number of retractions and this will be yet another one. can't tell somebody that if you do this again we're going to publish your name and subject you to all sorts of pain and anguish without calling it extortion that's what it is and it's funny too because they like to talk about all the violence on the right yet they use the violence on the left as a weapon to control somebody that they don't like what they're doing in helping the
president have a little poke a little fun at them it really shows how thin skinned how silly and how duplicitous they actually are and i think they would do best to just shut up and let this go our washington correspondent jacqueline bouvier looks at how the traditional media is relentless criticism of donald trump's prolific tweeting backfires to his benefit. donald trump hit back at criticisms that his tweets degrade the office of the president by posting an admission saying that his use of social media indeed isn't presidential but rather modern day presidential and well the critics out on whether that's a good thing or not it's undeniable the man understands the power of the internet trump inspires me and creates trump uses mediums and his twitter posts take the recent c.n.n. wrestling video he shared which was originally posted on reddit a popular viral news and discussion website that modern day presidential post caused an uproar in the traditional media president of the united states taking things way too far and as an incitement to violence he is going to get somebody
killed in the media is an attempt to might be successful to drum up violence against journalists it's kind of behavior to lead to journalist hurt it's no wonder that sixty percent of americans say they have little to no trust in the media and many are turning to social media to get their information a trend that trump has cottoned onto and when the mainstream media makes his every tweet breaking news they're giving trump exactly what he wants i think you guys are getting played man i think every time he does this you guys overreact and i say you guys i mean the media in general you overreact and you play right into his hand whenever trump does they jump on it in a huge scrum he has used the media the social media is used twitter. and twitter has been around for a wound. length everything they've got i don't like the donkey sure it's used to me and they don't understand it and they right now are actually
a very critical position in their life because the american public has no faith in them whatsoever so it seems that's how trump when is a war with traditional media through the magic mean. r.t.u. washington d.c. the struggles of holiday hotspots when too many tourists turn up the locals are fighting but look next. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive in. my body gets and somebody produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as
a symbol of generosity no one does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it. applies more. to put money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plans much smaller conference in rome and. one of the risks of pay donation. then is proof that the frequency of pathologies is much higher paid. in it. if i was lying. over two years old he was. in the money. and who runs the blood business. he had to say. that on the cheap. and then prove it come true
so let's get right to go to a skeptic he said if we give them everything they seem to. be. discounted. this is what we don't understand how we are in such an. as i said to. the soon to run up a similar symbol. of. god can we believe again with the phone about the food with the flames. we've come to the three story you have to see. the.
