and i'll give you what the mainstream media can't go big picture go deeper investigate and debate all so you can get the big picture. u.s. and russia brokered cease fire comes into force in southwest syria people there are enjoying their first peaceful day after six years of fighting. and in the top stories in the wake of
a. german city leaving hundreds of police and protesters injured. i. c n n is accused of blackmailing the creator of the present wrestling clip threatening to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. hello there the latest developments in a look back at the last seven days to you watching the weekly here and the international now 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. you know. i'm maybe he didn't believe. much. for you to work with. russell. all the syrian cease fire came as an unexpected breakthrough following a meeting between president trump and president putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit in hamburg germany saying as more details. 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 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 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 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 break throughout the entire syrian conflict as a whole as you know prior to this numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless sea. fire happening greed on and both sides have accused each other of violating them and so stairs 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 what 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. 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 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 the times of paul it's 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 friday may putin did however share his personal impressions of the u.s. leader afterwards. 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 cooperation between our countries to a new level however it wasn't only pacing and trunk but drawing attention the g. twenty summit did see a lot of new faces as well as a with friends getting together. was. i. was.
left wing militants from across europe converged on the city leaving a trail of destruction cars and piles of rubbish were tossed in shops were vandalized and looted too and the right is also clashed with police in fact over two hundred officers reportedly left injured and after the first wave of the riots many businesses decided to board up their windows to protect their premises some said that parts of the city looked like a war zone pressure all over followed the trouble. 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 everyone seriously so you can have that really hurts you a kosovan is what can you please describe for me what happened for 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 to understand the message they want to send me his violence he simply tragic. that is a call some form sportscar belief that's been torched here 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 that on 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 is marching through the city then leading 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 watertown and we see. 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 and there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see walter 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 their plans were some were saying they were going to board 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 off the floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that along. so the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place. what he bronson from the alternative to germany party told is that given the strength of radical left wing sentiment in the city violence is always very much
a possibility. how big it 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 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
sixteen like all of. europe. and one of the such moments was president. but again the iraqi prime minister has traveled to the city of mosul the former islamic state stronghold to declare victory over the terror group only a small pocket of militants now remains and they are expected to be defeated seeing that development has been widely celebrated in the media but 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 right but today the iraqi security forces were firing their syria weapons in. celebration claiming victory over their own well the iraqi military with the support of the us launched its campaign to liberate the city from ice a law last october during the operation human rights groups though 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 thousands of civilians have also been killed the battle took a particularly severe toll on the city's children four year old howard was one of those who was lucky to survive.
it's good to talk to them i didn't want to. name one of them on the beach on the other one i. just want an aussie true china is opening late in this tough. nut to. get it fighting for their little silly child the floodlight see a bug up on them on monday gunn began a big chill on going to how the cause of most of that a bit cool will get on your cell phone been a term which on the sunny side of a car is hard. to set up. with any. unity government to mitigate. that or you have oh well i'm going to have to miss how they need money and come with maturity and he didn't thanks.
melissa on the need to move come to me and. so the guy that could actually. go to shop just amount. to one of the little money going to come. and look i'm going to be nice to him beat him he's changed. human rights watch told us more about the civilian price of the liberation. operation to retake mosul particular the the west of the city. these 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 this this city has really paid a price for this operation that 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 the 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 this week tracked down the creator of a clear featuring donald trump wrestling the channel's logo of the video was tweeted by the president a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say it did encourage by the nz against reporters however the channel found itself in the water when it decided to find the man behind the main of takes 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 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
