of injuries among police and protesters. i. c n n is accused of blackmailing the creator of the president wrestling clip threatening to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. but i welcome the latest developments and look back at what's been happening over the last seven days to watch and we can here on r.t. international. just a few hours ago u.s. and russia brokered cease fire came into force in southwest syria after six years of relentless fighting people across three provinces have finally enjoyed a relatively peaceful day.
now. i will need to give you a bit. much. for you to work with. russell. but the syrian ceasefire came as an unexpected breakthrough following a meeting between president putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g twenty summit in hamburg with more details his many sick. 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 to discover 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 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 president vladimir putin he also expressed an optimistic tone or just 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 a whole as you know prior to this numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless. ceasefire happening read on and both sides have accused each other of violating them and so stares there's still a lot of answered questions regarding the syrian conflict and where the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government we asked him out but came 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 a long way ahead. so i believe that we wouldn't be able to reach
a final 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 from the day he was able to reach this agreement with them and put them there where the news leaked 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. this is a quote from trump's opponents. however it wasn't only. everybody's attention the. faces well as old friends getting together.
i. well thousands of leftwing militants from across europe converged on the city leaving a trail of destruction cars and piles of rubbish were taught shops are also vandalized and looted and the rioters also clashed with police in fact over two hundred officers were reportedly left injured and after the first wave of riots many businesses too decided to board up their windows to protect the premises some said parts of the city looked like a war zone peter all of a followed three hours three days of trouble. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. i can see the main body of the crowd and i disavow he and his mates i am lacing everyone seriously so
you can have that really hurts 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 been. roaming the 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 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 war to count and 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 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 there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see a 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 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 wealthy floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a law. the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place on. the
road the reports now will he bronson from the alternative to germany party tells us that given the strength of the radical left wing sentiment in the city violence is 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 how 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 of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not how you should stage your prostates your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard you're watching the weekly here not a still to come the war between scene and from this to running at full steam will have a look at that after the break. the wealthy areas of the italy going bust and we should save them because they're going . down the social back the drag they have already printed fifteen sixteen trillion dollars to bail out their friends their oligarch friends during some stupid thousand and eight and they signal to the marketplace that we've got
found itself at the center of an internet week to track down the creator of the clip featuring donald trump wrestling the channels the video was tweeted by the president a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say to encourage violence against reporters however the channel found itself in hot water when it decided to find the man behind the main one against the earth as 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 ah it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had to 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 definition of blackmail. well in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind the clip it back in tweeted this response to the claims of blackmail he says that their line was misinterpreted and that they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still the damage was done on the internet hit back with more marines bashing c.n.n. .
well we spoke exclusively to the moderator for the at reddit web just say you're the sky high on a solo the guy who posted the original gift 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 right to do that c.n.n. has all of the internet against them right now and when 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 and told or ever tells us 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 allusion to a correspondent checking the galaxy tie the traditional media to relentless criticism the donald trump's tweets may have backfired. 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 post 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 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 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 use twitter. and twitter has been around for awhile. laying remember everything they've got i don't like him much like a 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. . in other news this week the u.s. threatened north korea with military force on wednesday after pyongyang test fired a new missile the warning came during an emergency meeting of the u.n. 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 america believes it was an intercontinental ballistic missile that was launched by north korea but russia's defense ministry disagrees with that saying it doesn't believe it had that sort of range moscow is currently calling on both sides to find
a political solution to the standoff russia together with china laid out a set of proposals for easing the tensions and they suggested that north korea stops testing its weapons and that the u.s. and south korea suspend large scale military exercises in the region washington was also asked to hold its deployment of missile defense systems in south korea however that was rejected by the u.s. and on wednesday so washington fired their own missiles into the sea of japan which were seen as warning shots to north korea a number of analysts told us that it is america's actions that could actually provoke conflicts 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 was the continuation of the spectacle in which the united states and her increasingly view are lies or using by an international body of peace as a climate of global apartheid to justify and robbers star wars and saying sions
which amount to war they're going to hate the united states even more than they already do we'll see russia and china is countries which don't necessarily always agree with them countries which on our allies to them but countries which do not wish them and the people of all countries but 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 us 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. . would be watching weekly here in r.t.
up next for you we have a look at the rise of urban tourism in some of europe's most unique and popular destinations and how the locals there are adapting to their new reality if you're watching us there in the u.k. or ireland find out about the impoverished americans resorting to donating blood to make money. in case your. new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington the media. the media over the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before
. yes there is a saying but look there can't be cheap but then you went to all the countries. but ideas their right to go to his country he said to me give them everything to do to pass. this country because this is what we don't understand how we are in such a country. let us into the minds of the disenchanted. noticing god i'm going to. lose a similar symbol. like a good one. because if you feel if the minutes of kong were not that god
can we believe again in the fall of the cup good luck with that the plane. would come back to the play story if you have to see. the best. movie. to. dubrovnik deceptively peaceful. venice it's peaceful hours are numbered. is also stealing itself in the early morning. up three unique cities in europe with one that's getting woods all the time. they. ever have but yet you know what that that they built. there's no
benefit that people eat here. i did a sit stay did to close but quickly and since going to work holds of tourists every day the whole year round the peak season in some cities in europe results in the state of emergency. but all the chicken pulled out of the fest have between nash got out because there is a loss of time because the share of national going to. place a couple stays in the. local residents suffer from the mass of this it is they feel pushed out robbed of their own city how worried by noise and simply swamped by phone too many just. can't. go tourism is going beyond it's not just in venice but the locals are not giving up without a fight. if they're for the. moment. to show us how god
made me feel. like. city tourism in europe is booming there's never the fool fueled by aggressive price dumping budget flights and the sharing economy trend which offer this cheap accommodation worldwide. all the authorities dealing with the onslaught in one post so i could not really could i would even find you have a kosher meal in these going to the nationals get from place the combining claim of fitness fish as the only choice of the fifty fish should the rest proceed to the city as an expanding business model with cars.
