11:05 am
the demonstrators right now so we're going to try and get out of the way just well mona 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 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.
11:06 am
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 and 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 . 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 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
11:07 am
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. of the old guys any of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being a lot of the violence took place on. hue branson is from the alternative for germany party earlier he told me that given the strength of rather kill left wing sentiment in the city violence was always very much a possibility. how big is well known for its left wing and. sometimes extremist
11:08 am
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 protest but a 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 of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not
11:09 am
how you should stage your prostates your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard. well away from the violence one of the most and to separate it encounters of the g. twenty was the russian president's first face to face meeting with donald trump the meeting seems to of exceeded expectations bringing about a potential breakthrough for the syria conflict the two leaders agreed to establish a cease fire in the country which has now come into effect artie's emley suit has been following developments. 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 the school that's russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreements with syria the cease fire will come into effect in three
11:10 am
areas. 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 afford such incidents in the future 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
11:11 am
president vladimir putin he also expressed an optimistic tone over 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 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 it's there's still a lot of answer to questions regarding the syrian conflict one of the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government. well we asked an expert in international relations about the difficulties that lie ahead for the syrian peace process this is still a first step should be tested it's
11:12 am
a long way ahead. so i believe that we wouldn't be able to reach i find of solution for 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. while most of the details of what was discussed at the meeting between trump remain secret the russian president did however share his personal impressions of the american leader. national press or
11:13 am
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. however it wasn't only putin and trump drawing everyone's attention the g. twenty summit saw a lot of new faces as well as old friends getting together.

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 definition of blackmail. well in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who originally wrote about the mean designer identities tweeted this response to the block meal claim i read thought their line was misinterpreted they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still damage was done on the internet hit back with even more c.n.n. bunching means.
11:19 am
we managed to speak exclusively to a moderator for the reddit website section where the clip originated he asked us as well to conceal his identity. just say you're the sky high on a solo the guy who posted the original gif it would be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls random e-mails from c. mail out of nowhere i would not be super enthusiastic about c.n.n. one of the largest news communities in the world sending out boy threats about telling you to stop doing what you want to do on the internet policy and has no
11:20 am
right to do that c.n.n. has all of the internet against them right now and one organizations attack 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 untold or ever tell is yours that you do not approve of them by running ads on their network our site right now on the right of the people who are pushing the c.n.n. black milk hash tag that are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing but our washington correspondent jacqueline booga looks now at how the traditional media's relentless criticism of donald trump's prolific tweeting bike fires 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
11:21 am
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 memes 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 is an incitement to violence he is going to get somebody killed in the media. might be successful to drum up violence against journalists it's kind of behavior to lead to a journalist he 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
11:22 am
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 he's used twitter. and twitter has been around for awhile 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 of mean. are to you washington d.c. . austria threaten to. curity along its border with italy on monday seeing hundreds of troops were in stunned by following a spike in migrant arrivals in southern europe austria's ambassador was then
