7:05 am
a very delicate issue moscow maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. in the world. so that said it all ended with inviting came john to rush up so let's see whether the north korean leader will accept the invitation for now we're heading back to the airport in the russian foreign minister's motorcade. right. residence and pyongyang. the u.n. humanitarian office. as reported on civilian suffering in libya it says there's been an unprecedented escalation in fighting in the coastal city of government and the past week alone at least five civilians have been killed two of them children clashes and their rate of also cut electricity or water supplies to more than one hundred thousand people the head of the un humanitarian office in libya has been

describing the situation that instability is high in various places in libya so there's always a potential for escalation the situation and is very challenging we have seen an escalation of conflict over the last period but it definitely has intensified its. last few days i mean concern is that humanitarian needs of the need for water food medicine medical supplies is increasing very rapidly and we also have severe concerns flood to protection of civilians will find themselves caught in the conflict and the u.n. report comes as the french president's been pushing for negotiations between the countries warring factions our senior correspondent what i've got to have has more on what role france plays in libya right now. the french president mr mcauliffe has a certain brand he sells himself as a bit of a peacemaker his latest effort
7:07 am
a libyan peace summit bringing together key need is some of whom war with each other back on was proud to sit upon you for the first time these libyan leaders under this format some of whom do not mutually recognize each other's positions have met together through accepted to work together and approved a joint declaration this is an essential important step and which makes what will come next possible. you'd think in reality there were a lot of handshakes forced smiles and photo ops when it came to actually making peace they signed nothing any agreement they had was verbal in diplomacy that means nothing or over but everyone joined in more than a dozen armed groups and organizations who signed the letter saying that this summit did not represent them would call for
7:08 am
a real dialogue focused on the aspirations of libyan society in its aspects nevertheless pundit's macron hailed it as a breakthrough after all getting all these people together under the same roof was an achievement not so much the main actors were there in july last year at this same summit also hosted by mark wrote. the courage that is yours today by being here and by agreeing to this joint declaration is historic is to take your risk despite things that could have been against despite the actions of others to work towards a process of national reconciliation and long term peace. and nothing changed but maintaining the brand takes effort backgrounds really trying. to libyan people aspire to safety stability to live better to be able to express their
7:09 am
sovereignty yes about safety and stability done a coastal city in libya has been under siege for almost a year now and it's only gotten worse the escalation of fighting there has reached unprecedented levels once the un the libyan national army led by general has died who was at summit is trying to take the city from a local warlord and islamists it's been a tough battle. on this happy occasion we say that zero hour for durness city liberation has come. local sources report the protection forces a currently taking positions amongst civilian infrastructure in residential areas mostly in the center of the city and reportedly in civilian clothing since twenty second maybe that has been a rising civilian casualty toll as a result of indiscriminate shelling of residential areas in general have tires are
7:10 am
tribal handed i'll mistreat it was also at nikon's gathering he urged for an immediate cease fire and took a jab at the general i don't recognize the chief commander named tough star he said that the very same day the four libyans pledged to work constructively in paris no surprise that nothing was signed merely an dorst question is who is going to remember this indorsement and for how long. i think unsettled across the mediterranean as well the spanish government voted overwhelmingly to remove the prime minister mariano rajoy it after the socialist party leader the first no confidence motion in modern history over a corruption scandal let's go live to madrid now journalist martin roberts is there i'm martin bring us up to speed on what's happening where you are. well as you say
7:11 am
in an unprecedented move opposition socialist party leader pedro sanchez is now spain's new prime minister after a vote of no confidence which he carried with one hundred eighty votes in favor and just two hundred sixty nine against something called for the vote a week ago following a high court ruling which again followed a long running corruption scandal in which several senior members of the holies party were found guilty of corruption including the party's former treasurer now but first there were some doubts as to whether sanchez will be able to carry the motion because he only controls eighty five votes in a three hundred fifty members chamber however when the opposition left wing party proud a most threw their lot in them particularly the regional catalan and bass parties finally knew that the game was over. a levy that they look at that from what we all know the no confidence motion is likely to go through which means mr petro censures will be the new prime minister and i would like to be the first to congratulate him
7:12 am
it will be this chamber that will make the decision and it is up to all of us to abide by the mandate of the popular sovereignty represented here. well the big question now in spain is just how long centuries can govern for because as i said he has barely a quarter of the votes in congress we expect to see some furious horse trading in the next few days bridges built with part of a most left wing party regional parties because if the government is not stable spain could be seeing its third general election in as many years so we certainly look as if we're going to be having some rocky months ahead so we should gear up for the election for christmas and i guess so for now though martin robert symmetry thanks very much for that. political analyst paolo ruffo nate thinks the new government will be able to bring changes to spain's relationship with the european union. the end of the government maybe a shift in the policy that spain will adopt both towards the internal
7:13 am
course additional solutions with its autonomous regions namely the lumia is the most prominent case and we have seen how much deeper has been the confrontation about it and on the other hand it can be also. a change of attitude to. the european union the search. has been basically leaning and accepting any requests from brussels this new government may be quite critical on certain austerity measures. now it's not only spain that's going through a political shakeup right now after several attempts italian parties finally formed a euro skeptic and anti establishment coalition government is about to take power after months of political turmoil as don quarter explained. brussels has more to fear than ever before with abeles euro skeptics back in the game poised to form
7:14 am
a new government the e.u. may be in for some trouble but the pro e.u. president took his chance to appease brussels he appointed a former i.m.f. official to oversee the government against the will of populist voters the outrage that ensued brought the coalition back to power and this led financier's to panic at italy's possible withdrawal from the euro zone but polls suggest sixty to seventy percent of italians opposed immediate eurozone withdrawal the euro skeptics change their position to satisfy voters and right now their main focus lies with their government of change it proposes a basic income for italians and to deport thousands of migrants and it also proposes to lift sanctions on russia and pursue normal relations between the two countries we'll have to see how far the e.u. lets this go massive protests both in favor of the interim president and the coalition are scheduled to take place soon with trouble on the horizon it may not
7:15 am
be long before brussels tries to influence the tally and democracy once more. from europe in short while the french government's resettled thousands of migrants in paris some of them and then neighbors of former president it's among those stories after the break. so something seems wrong but all wrong just don't call. me. yet to stamp out this thing becomes active. engagement equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
7:16 am
apply to many clubs over the years so i know the game inside. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money kill you narrowness and spending to get to the twenty million and one player. it's an experience like nothing else only because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game great so will pull chance with. the thinks it's going to. come back and ukrainian court has rejected an appeal from a journalist working with a russian news agency commission's key was arrested on charges of treason which
7:17 am
free speech advocates have described as politically motivated rejected a request to remove him from the security cell during his hearing he go to donald possible. what we've seen today is of course the continuation of the case of korea skeel was jailed on the fifteenth of may he was the he's the editor in chief of ria novosti ukraine news agency and so basically here his two months arrest but the court decided to basically the court rejected his plea and the self described the pressure he's being put to that is being exerted on him that he himself compared to torture and have a listen. but. it's hard to maintain a working atmosphere in this situation where i experience constant pressure including psychological and now it's just i'm precedented i'm handled as if i killed kennedy. well as i've mentioned he was arrested on the fifteenth of may when ukrainian police raided the offices of his news agency and he's being accused of
7:18 am
state treason because of because of his professional activities and that has caused international concerns foreign governments like for example bergdahl in there has just said that his case is very important to just looking at it from the perspective of the freedoms of the press of the council of europe and the always see have said that this is something that this is something that could impact the media freedoms in ukraine other agencies have called this an attack on journalists and demanded the immediate release of skill but ukrainian authorities actions of the raise concerns also because they are being motivated by the national security service the same agency that is behind a nother media scandal that is over another journalist. what happened a couple of days ago they said that well. a vocal critic was killed
7:19 am
murdered in his apartment three shots in the back and hours later they revealed that it was all fake it was apparently staged they thought as they are saying someone was planning his assassination on behalf of the russian government and they needed this masqueraded to catch the mastermind but a lot of journalists and experts and international organizations the ask the question well how can the ukrainian government be now trusted if they juggle the facts like that and they are saying that of course this incident will have an impact on case as well. you heard it on over there we managed to contact several journalists working in the ukrainian media to get their thoughts on this but fearing for their own safety they only agreed to speak to us on the condition of anonymity. people don't want any problems with police or nationalists who are doing what ever they want has anybody come to our defense when they picketed our station or set the building on fire we tried talking to our colleagues but they didn't want
7:20 am
to listen any criticism of the government can result in something like that for example they can raid your offices and find a map of ukraine without crimea ukrainian media should have united then demonstrated to the government that it can treat pro position media like that but our colleagues don't want to get involved and we can't organize a large scale protest on our own. next up thousands of migrants in paris are being cleared from their makeshift shelters along the city's canals roughly two hundred of them have been resettled in a wealthy district in the french capital city went to find out what the residents thought about their new right neighbors. this is one of the nearly wrecked it camps in paris it's been set up to shelter around one hundred and seventy migrants who are amongst the thousand or so who were cleared from the canals of paris doing side waves thousands of migrants had to be camped along the canals for many many months
7:21 am
living in squalid conditions with few to no comforts the mayor of paris and the interior minister who had been embroiled in a war of words over who was responsible for clearing the camps the situation will be repeated indefinitely if measures not taken by local authorities to prevent the camps from reappearing. we could have avoided waiting for months to find shelter for those people the suggestion i made to the state was to build and reform a welcome center which is really the only the only option possible if we want to avoid the roadside cabs so i'm waiting for the states to get back to me on that. now these migrants are being housed in broad deploying one of paris's wealthiest areas the sixteenth up on the small it's also home to former president nicholas sarkozy p.s.t.'s back to ponce football stadium and
7:22 am
a horse which is currently hosting tennis stars from across the globe for the french open some locals aren't over the moon about their new neighbors i think the people who are not very. pretty to see if people are here because they're alfredo afraid to some some of those be very difficult and some are. very very nice i'm sure but a really tough part of them maybe but. you never know how people can react you can have some people who react very badly and some good you never know resist but authorities choose not to most hospitable area because it is populated by many old people who are not really open minded so i think that this area is not the most welcoming would deport us we don't see any changes we don't communicate with migrants because we don't see them at all in the area so i guess leave autonomous lee this is now the thirty fourth time in three years that my quince have been
7:23 am
moved in paris but the problem seems to be cyclic it's never ending i. thought. was. oh authorities are due to continue to clear out of camps that emerged along paris. canals in the next few days yet with the capital already overflowing and an estimated five hundred fifty extra migrants arriving every week this seems to be little that the authorities can do to keep a lid on the problem jollity even ski r.t. paris. just before we go football fever is spreading with just two weeks to go until the biggest event in the game and as patients proving hard to contain for the world cup here in russia it's even gone into orbit.
7:24 am

7:26 am
greetings and salutation. back in april democrat party chair tom paradis and the democratic national committee that's the governing body of the democratic party amounts to a drooling mainstream news media that it was filing a multimillion dollar lawsuit against the u.s. president donald trump's campaign the russian federation the russian military intelligence roger stone gerrard paul metaphor donald trump jr george papadopoulos julian assange and wiki leaks five left anyone else out please forgive me so big list it was those last two names i mentioned wiki leaks and julian a sun which raised eyebrows among journalists of first amendment advocates who who care more about printing the troops than burning access bridges are catering to partisan politics this group includes the committee to protect journalists or c p j
7:27 am
which raises some interesting questions regarding the potential dangers the d.n.c. has case presents for the freedom of the press and the first amendment in a recent article by obvious or shapiro shapiro points out the case raises a number of important press freedom questions where should courts draw the line between source building in conspiring what activities could complicate a journalist and a source is illegal behavior would putting a secure drop link soliciting leaks count as illegal conspiracy and the former reporter asked for documents on an individual while indicating that they think the person deserves to be exposed would that count as shared motive. see all these are legitimate questions that should be asked of the d.n.c. and but the d.m.c. claims in a statement to the press that quote unlike presidents trump and the democratic party respects the first amendment and cherishes the critical role that the free press plays in our democracy unless of course it's
7:28 am
a press organization that you believe cost you an election then i guess all bets are off and you know first amendment can take a seat which is why much to the chagrin of the d.n.c. we will always be watching the hawks. because you get the. real deal with. the bottom. like you that i got. this. week so i. welcome everybody to watch the harks i have a tight rope and and i'm top of the list and joining us today to discuss the ramifications of the d.n.c.
7:29 am
is lost sales on press freedoms as media and legal analyst lionel of why don't we. welcome. thank you so in florida the committee to protect journalists. is the committee to protect journalism accurate in their concerns over press freedom and first amendment implications in this d.n.c. lawsuit are very devoted does their argument hold water. oh absolutely and if this case is not tossed immediately by the southern district of new york i would be surprised let me throw a little of monkey wrench or whatever the phrases into the works here because this is why the d.n.c. are even more out of their mind then i had thought you see as you know when you sued someone the person that you soon to could say great now that i'm in court i'm going to counter claim against you i'm going to sue you for something that i either
7:30 am
wanted to sue you for or that arises out of this but here's the best part i get to conduct discovery come on in d.n.c. i have a reason or believe to defend myself i think why you lost wasn't because of wiki leaks but was because of hillary clinton and servers that donna brazil and how you double crossed bernie and we want to bring all that information to put you under oath so we in the course of defending ourselves can one day convince a jury that really it wasn't our leaking but your ineptitude your conspiracy perhaps maybe your criminal activity so the d.n.c. just opened itself up to exploring what they did through discovery that's insane and you sued russia what are they going to what do you sue rush i mean it's been done before people have suits on.
