again. hello you're watching on t.v. international with me rosana lockwood live from moscow thank you for joining us. 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 day. i know. that maybe i will let. you know about the what was called.
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 in hamburg germany suhas the 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 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 unswayed or 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 asked 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 the disputed golan heights of this road 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 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. and 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. 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 cease fire happen agreed on and both sides have accuse each other of violating them and so stairs there are 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 jamal wakim 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 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 supporters. the first meeting between the russian and american presidents was held behind closed doors at the g twenty summit in hamburg this week much of what was discussed was not made public but a lot of made putin did however share his personal impressions of the u.s. leader of two words. 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
thousands of left wing meditated militants from across europe converged on the city leaving a trail of destruction cars and piles of rubbish were torched shops were vandalized and looted and the rioters also clashed with police over two hundred officers were reportedly injured after the first wave of riots many business owners boarded up they windows some said paul's the city looked like was and peter all of a 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 every bomb seriously so you can have that really hurt you a kosovan is what can you please describe for me what happened for what you will as far as i could tell there were attack in the demonstration with no reason. this is part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also to understand the message they want to send is violence is 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 water cannon 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 washer ally of a lot of police offices 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 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 watertown and 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 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 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 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 as a place called the a wealthy floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot. of the organizers of these demonstrations originated from of course this
area ending up being webb a lot of the violence took place i. was . here bronson from the alternative for germany party told us that given the strength of the radical left wing sentiment in the city volunteers always very much a possibility. well known for its leftwing. 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 hamburg to take part in this one group is very peaceful they want to stage their protest they are 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 of the 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 prostates your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard. firefighters are tackling a huge blaze at london's historic camden market one of the city's most popular attractions the roof and first three floors of one building have caught fire according to officials seventy five seventy five light is apologies and ten fire engines have been called to the scene part of camden street has now been blocked by
police there are currently no reports of any casualties. now the iraqi prime minister has traveled to the city of mosul a former islamic state stronghold to declare victory over the terror group only a small pocket of militants now remains and they're expected to be defeated soon the development has been widely celebrated by 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 way but today the iraqi security forces were firing their weapons in celebration claiming victory over their ready. iraqi military with the support of the u.s. launched its campaign to liberate the city from eisel 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 more than eight hundred fifty thousand people have been forced to leave the area thousands of civilians have been killed in the battle took a particularly severe toll on the city's children four year old howard i was one of those who was lucky to survive. fish get it done for them i didn't want to. name a lot of on the beach on the one id it. just one also true that i was opening made in the i thought i. thought that. fit the i'm fighting phyllis diller child the floodlight see if i got up on them on monday gunn began a big cheer on going to hug the pulse of most of that
a bit cool will get the new stuff on when it's shown that the sun humbucker is hard . to set up. but i need it within your own unique until the middle. of that a year old i mean damage at the head and miss how the mini movie in the in the mcnish will be in the new. facility to move. and. so the other other traditional. nonnegotiable i just i'm out. of the little hole when money going to come. and look i'm going to been nice to the buddha he changed.
human rights watch told us more about the price paid by civilians for the liberation. operation to retake mosul particularly believe that aware of this city and 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 sold in the city has really paid a price for this operation but 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 securely the types and sizes of bombs that it's choosing to drop because of these large balls 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 civilian concerns or 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. c.n.n. found itself at the center of an internet round this week to track down the creator rick clip featuring donald trump wrestling the channel's logo the video was tweeted by the president himself just a few days earlier leaving c.n.n. to say it encouraged violence against reporters however the channel found itself in hot water when it decided to find the man behind the mean. merde cast you have have
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 the 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 could 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 deficient of blackmail well in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind it hit back he tweeted this response to the claims of blackmail saying that the c.n.n. line was misinterpreted and that they simply meant that c.n.n.
made no agreement about handling the man's identity still the damage was done on the internet responded with more means bashing c.n.n. . thanks. thanks thanks. thanks. thanks. thanks. we spoke exclusively to a moderator for the reddit web site from where the clip originated he also just to conceal his identity just say you're this guy on a solo oh i'm the guy who posted the original guess it would be frightening if i
were him and i received random phone calls or in emails 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 so i mean up we can throw it's 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. were hurt and told or ever ties you that you do not approve of 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 that are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. our washington correspondent jacqueline virgo looks at how the traditional media's
relentless criticism of 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 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 is an attempt 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 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. washington d.c.
coming up well the poll looks at whether america has a place in europe's future stay with us. i think the u.s. russia will a ship 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 shiria on iran on energy on trade.
and. about your sudden passing i phone we just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite different. the speech you just don't know whether to. claim that
mainstream media has met its make. the. point welcome to worlds apart old to talk about russian meddling in european politics in the united states that has trapped her on the decision making on the continent that is until don't know trunk moved into the white house is europe ready to take its fate into its own hands as german chancellor angela merkel suggested it should want to discuss that i'm now joined by yana form 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're welcome we are recording this program just a few days before the russian and the american presidents are expected to meet in person for the first time and coincidentally that 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. i would say that to both presidents. unpredictable so here at least in this house we cannot we cannot say the two are waiting something something particular for it was very difficult. to get them together. it is so long. who waited for this for this meeting and so now i read it i look and say anything while waiting and waiting with great interest and forever speak. i have no idea what will develop come of this meeting now it's
interesting to say that because i am i more or less agree with what you just said i've been covering international politics for more than a decade and yet i think in my memory this is the first meeting between the international leaders where so much focus has been placed on personal connection as far as i know from the kremlin nor agreements nor documents are being drafted it's all about the two of them sitting down and having a chat if it's safe for the international system is it healthy for the international system when the communication between the leaders of two nuclear powers is saw peculiar let's let's put it that way. well see that president is under enormous pressure since he was elected and this pressure is most are related to russia and i believe that this is that is the reason why we're in this situation now so i agree. i'm also in politics for quite a long time.
