wrestling clip threatening to reveal his identity if it goes something similar again. with the top stories from the past seven days and right up to the moment developments as well welcome to the weekly r t international my names you know neal our top story this hour the german city of hamburg is counting the cost softer ensuring a string of violent protests against the g twenty summit while the event went smoothly for the leaders of the world's most powerful countries for three consecutive nights riots broke out on the streets fifty thousand people rallied on sunday alone.
the toughness. chefs to escape the shooting stood next to the woman. i needed for a while left wing militants from across europe convened on the city they torched cars and piles of rubbish vandalized and looted shops and left glass and debris strewn across streets the rioters also clashed violently with police the filings reportedly left as at least two hundred officers injured many business owners after the first wave of riots took steps to protect their premises boarding up weapons and doing similar things some said parts of the city looked like a war zone peter all over was following the unrest there for us. 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 one seriously so you can have that really hurt you a kosovan is what can you please describe for me what happened where you were well as far as i could tell they were attacking the demonstration with no reason. she's part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also don't understand the message they want to send me his violence he simply tragic. that is a call some form sportscar belief that's being taught shia roaming moments of 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's the build of on sci fi 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 do. not wish to keep a bit vigilant here because we are seeing already what's the 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 it. has a huge call of 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 . there was a quiet tense scene here just a long time ago whereby
a number of bottles were being thrown the police responded with water cannon which . there is certainly a very large police presence a helicopter flying overhead and 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 there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see wall to cut in being used every time they try and come close to this intersection they get sprayed back and. 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 are based here about what their plans were some are saying they were going to forward them up so most 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 off the floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot. so the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place. in
from the alternative for germany party told us that given the strength of radical left wing sentiment in the city violence was always very much a possibility. well known for its left wing and. sometimes extremist views so this shouldn't have been a surprise for anybody really well 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 protests a. perfectly in their rights 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 anticipated in countries around the g. twenty was the russian president's first face to face meeting with donald trump and that meeting seems to have exceeded expectations bringing about a potential breakthrough for the syrian conflict the two leaders agreed to establish a cease fire in the country which has now come into effect with more here's our teens and really soon. following the first face to face meeting between president
trump 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 zone they discovered russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreement for syria the ceasefire 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 of 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 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 u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson he said this new agreement shows his 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 of this take a listen. regarding whether the u.s. is action 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 a whole as you know prior to this numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless cease fire happen agreed on and both sides have accuse each other of
violating them and so if there's still a lot of answered questions regarding the syrian conflict one of the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government. we stand expert in international relations about the difficulties that lie ahead for the syria peace process 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 syrian crisis before years from now maybe one or two years at least because there are a lot of obstacles specially from the american side there are a lot of opposition to the american president going on throughout the day he was able to reach this agreement with them and put them there where the new was leaked to the got to the media in the united states of meetings between his. son in law of donald trump and some of his aides with russian diplomats and
this is a quote from the times upon it well most of what was discussed after the trump putin meeting which was held behind closed doors remains a mystery a lot of the russian president did give a revealing insight into his first face to face with donald trump. national cancer it's a trump and i have 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 will be able to restore relations between the u.s. and russia and bring corporation between our countries to a new level or it wasn't only put an interim drawing everyone's attention the g. twenty summit saw a lot of new faces as well as old friends getting together. the.
the feeling of. every the world experience. that you get out of the old old. old according to josh. coming. back with our international c.n.n. fund itself sparking an internet war this week the creator of a clip featuring donald trump wrestling the news networks logo the video had been tweeted by the president a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say it encourage violence against reporters however the channel find itself in hot water when it decided to fine them. with the story here.
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 ah 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 these docs 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 way did 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. well in the box that followed the c.n.n. journalist who originally wrote about the mean designers identity tweeted this response to the blackmail claims he say's their line was misinterpreted they simply
meant c.n.n. made no agreement about identity still the damage was done on the internet hit by a with even more a c.n.n. bashing means. thanks thanks. thanks. thanks thanks thanks. thanks thanks. all we spoke exclusively to the moderator for the red website section where the clip originated he stuck to conceal his identity just say you're the scar on
a solo on the guy who posted the original guess it would be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls for him e-mails from c. mail out of nowhere i would not be super in the asked about c.n.n. one of the largest new scheme unities in the world sonny not waken throats about telling you to stop doing what you want to do on the internet policy and has no right to do that c.n.n. has all of the internet against them right now and one organizations attacks freedom of speech and never ends up well for them and make no mistake about it this is an attack on the internet and c.n.n. has informally declared war on it in return we need to hit c.n.n. we're hurts i'm told are ever taught as yours that you do not approve of them by running ads on their network our site right now on the road the people who are pushing the c.n.n. blackmail hash tag on there are exposing c.n.n.
for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. or washington correspondent jacqueline looks at how the traditional media's 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 while the verdict 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 me 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. might be successful to drum up violence against journalists
this 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 whatever 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 he's laying everything they've got i don't like him much like the dog in the circus it's used to make 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 he is a war with traditional media through the magic mean. r.t.u. washington d.c. . another big story of the week for us. threaten north korea with military force on wed and stay after pyongyang test fired a new missile the warning came during an emergency meeting of the un security council the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies one of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces we will use them if we must and washington believes that was an intercontinental ballistic missile that was launched by north korea russia's defense ministry however does not believe it how sort of range it was not intercontinental to moscow is currently calling on both sides to try to find a political solution is that to this. together with china laid out
a set of proposals for easing the tensions they suggested that north korea stop testing its weapons and the u.s. suspend large scale military exercises in the region the agreement will also have seen washington hold its deployment of missile defense systems in south korea well that was rejected by the u.s. on whedon's the so one washington fired their own missiles into the sea of japan which was largely seen as a warning shot against north korea a number of analysts have told our t.v. it's america's actions in fact that could create a conflict in the region. but north korea launched a missile that wasn't intended to hurt anyone and it did not hurt anyone and what we saw at the united nations today was the continuation of the spectacle in which the united states and her increasingly view are lies or using by the international body of peace as a client of global apartheid to justify and rubberstamp wars and saying sions which
amount to war they're going to be watching today's proceedings they're going to hate the united states even more than they already do will see russia and china is countries which don't necessarily always agree with them countries which on allies to them but countries which do not wish them and the people of all the countries that want to engage in peace the countries that could end up saving north korea from american aggression and they will smile upon that surely the u.s. is sending the same message that they have been sending for seventy years and that is to threaten again and again and again the people of the democratic people's republic of korea and the reality of us endless endless threats on the people of korea has ratcheted up now the sanctions a new round of sanctions a new round of threatening other countries that have any trade or economic relations with the d.p. r. k.

pong ball come to worlds apart but all the talk about the russian meddling in european politics in the united states that has trapped her on the decision making on the continent that is until donald trump moved into the white house is europe ready to take its paid into its own hands as german chancellor angela merkel suggested it should vote to discuss that i'm now joined by john the calm and is torn in member of the european parliament this time it's great to have you on the show thank you very much for your time you know welcome we are recording these program just a few days before of the russian dam merican presidents are expected to meet in person for the first time points a densely a bad meeting is going to take place in europe do you think the europeans should be expecting anything groundbreaking to come out of this meeting. you know.
