4:01 pm
something similar again. hello welcome the latest developments and a look back at what's been happening over the last seven days you're watching a weekly here on our. just a few hours ago a cease fire brokered by the u.s. and russia came into force in southwest syria after six years of relentless fighting people across three provinces have finally enjoyed a relatively peaceful. no i know. that maybe i will never get. it done and. you. know what that's all.
4:02 pm
well the syrian cease fire came as an unexpected breakthrough following a meeting between president putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g twenty summit being held in hamburg and many say as more details following the first face to face meeting between president trump and 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 you guys up in russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreement for syria the ceasefire will come into effect in three areas there are natural and straight or they 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 asked southern provinces that lavrov mentioned also
4:03 pm
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 has 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 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 his take a listen. regarding whether the u.s. is isham 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 of the united effort now bear in mind that this is no doubt
4:04 pm
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 break throughout the entire syrian conflict as a whole as you know prior to there's numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless cease fire happen agreed on 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 where the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government we asked him what came next person international relations about the difficulties that the lie ahead for the city and 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
4:05 pm
reach this agreement with them and put them there where the new was 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. well the first meeting between the russian and american presidents was held behind closed doors at the g twenty summit in hamburg this week and much of what was discussed wasn't made public although let him a putin did it share his personal impressions of the u.s. leader afterwards. national closer to 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
4:06 pm
the u.s. and russia and bring corporation between our countries to a new level however it wasn't only paignton interim drawing everybody's attention the g. twenty summit saw a lot of new faces where there's old friends getting together.
4:07 pm
thank you. but. three consecutive nights. on the streets of. i. i. i. i i.
4:08 pm
i. i i. i. well thousands of leftwing militants from across europe converged on the city leaving a trail of destruction in fact cars and powers of rubbish were taught shops were vandalized to looted and the right is also clashed with police in fact over two hundred officers were reportedly left injured and after the first wave of riots many businesses decided to board up their windows to protect the premises some said
4:09 pm
that parts of the city looked like a war zone peter all of a follow the truck. 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 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 qassam form sportscar belief that's been 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
4:10 pm
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 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 it. has a huge call of police officers that's marching through the city then leading the demonstrators. i think.
4:11 pm
it's continued on days over the last twenty four hours now as you can see just behind me does actually. more wars account 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's 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 water kalin being used every time they try and come close to this intersection they get sprayed back
4:12 pm
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 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 for counter culture in germany one of the major centers indeed for the fall left here just over my left shoulder is a place called the a wealthy floor it's
4:13 pm
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 so. these are all of the reports now what he seemed to be you know what it is if in germany he told us that given the strength of the radical left wing sentiment in the city violence was always very much a possibility. how big is well known for its left wing. 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 protest they perfectly in their right every german has the right to assemble freely
4:14 pm
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 i know 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. it's still to come the iraqi government says the city of mosul has been finally liberated after three years and i still control we've got the details coming up after the break.
4:15 pm
i think the u.s. russia relationship is very important and has suffered and we need to make it better there's no question about it we need to cooperate on so many issues on nuclear weapons from syria on iran on energy on trade. with make this manufactured consensus instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes to protect themselves. in the final.
4:16 pm
we can all middle of the room see. the real news. welcome back iraqi prime minister travel to the city of mosul a full my islamic state stronghold to declare victory over the terror group only a small pocket of militants now remains and they are expected to be free to be defeated soon the development has been widely celebrated in the media. it is not often on the show that we can break good news about iraq but today is one of those days the country's prime minister arrived in mosul today to declare a great victory as he joined his troops to celebrate in the city they've lost many comrades along the road but today the iraqi security forces were firing their
4:17 pm
weapons in celebration claiming victory over their own well the iraqi military with the support of the u.s. launched its campaign to liberate the city from i saw last october during the operation human rights groups raise serious concerns about the civilian casualties being caused by coalition forces over the past nine months over eight hundred fifty thousand people have been forced to flee the area and thousands of civilians have been killed the battle took a particularly severe toll on the city's children four year old howrah was one of those who was lucky to survive. fish get it done for them i get that it's. the name one of limited each of the one id is. just what an aussie should china is opening made that initial thought but it
4:18 pm
. does. fit the young fighting well it's still a child the floodlight see a bug up on them on monday gun begin a big hit on going to how the cause of most of that a bit cool will get you on your cell phone been a term which on the sunny side of a car is a hard thing. to set up. but i need it within. a month or two and i'm glad. that a yellow i'm going down with it the hat and miss how did you name the i'm going with mitchell b. and you didn't think. this eliminated move from should be and. so the guy this would actually. go to show i would just amount.
4:19 pm
to one of those little holes been money going to come. and look i'm going to been nice to them beat him he changed. human rights watch tell us more about the civilian price of a direction. operation to retake mosul particular the only the west of the city that's been raging february has come at an incredibly high cost we've seen much of the west of the city completely destroyed by ground fire and by airstrikes and we've seen a mass spike in civilian casualties thousands of civilians being wounded and being killed in the fighting so so that the city has really paid
4:20 pm
a price for this operation we were calling particularly on the u.s. led coalition to take more care in the way that it is conducting its bombing campaign and particularly the types and sizes of bombs that it's choosing to drop because of these large bombs that are being dropped more and more frequently we've seen a massive increase in civilian casualties on the ground unfortunately the general feeling among the coalition and iraqi government is that because the momentum to finish the operation has been on their side they've wanted to use all means to get it done as quickly as possible and as a result we haven't seen them willing to for example take certain types of weapons completely off the table so as to better protect civilians are concerned that with these civilian casualties we don't see accountability we don't see american commanders taking responsibility and we don't see compensation for the victims. now c.n.n. found itself at the center of an internet round this week keep track down we create
4:21 pm
two of the please don't try i'm wrestling the channels logo video was tweeted by the president a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to save encourage violence against reporters however the channel found itself in the water when it decided to find the man behind the main. takes up the story so this guy makes a humorous little video and then it blows up some wouldn't edited it. to push the limits twitter feed. ah it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had a laugh 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 doc saying it is digging up private information on someone or with something and then publishing it
4:22 pm
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 see. c.n.n. succeeded they found the original creator and have 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
4:23 pm
changes isn't that the definition of blackmail in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind the clip it back he tweeted this response to the claims of blackmail saying 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 i mean tonight responded with more means bashing c.n.n. . thank you thank you thank you. thank you thank you thank you thank you thank what we spoke
4:24 pm
exclusively to a moderator for the reddit flipside from the clip originated in he asked to conceal his identity to just say you're the scar on a solo on the guy who posted the original good it will be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls or in an email from simo out of nowhere i would not be super enthusiastic about c.n.n. one of the largest new scheme unities in the world certainly not boy get throats about telling you to start doing what you want to do on the internet 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 formally declared war on them in return we need to hit c.n.n. we're hurts i'm told or ever tire is yours that you do not approve of by running
4:25 pm
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 up they are are doing the right thing a washington correspondent shouting fake and i looks at how the traditional media is rent this criticism of donald trump's tweets may have backfired. own terms 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
4:26 pm
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 a while he's laying 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
4:27 pm
