7:19 am
current evidence insufficient it's only five to ten percent of the whole picture so we will receive all the documents from the investigation which we will of course dismiss there are a lot of questions to answer and it will likely take six months to a year. closer than his media there is a t.v. in his cell good food and medical care as well i think there is an extraordinary library in there with eighteenth or nineteenth century literature which there is a good attitude towards paul which is correct i mean there is no psychological pressure on him that the investigator has been adequate and acts under the law to provide support you couple so i hope that we have a chance it's fifty fifty in my opinion. rushing out international going to take a quick break now we'll be back there with more news until.

come back to ati now there has been a social media backlash after an american muslim activist was misidentified as a pakistani troops by u.s. fashion magazine vogue. posted a video on instagram capturing the moment she found at the glossy publication and got the name wrong. to. the north a gori here is a journalist of libyan origin who promotes women's rights she gained global media attention by becoming the first muslim women to appear in playboy shoot for which
7:22 am
though she did wear hijab and also wear the clothing she was mistaken for actress nor cari who is this who has the same first name to gori says she's been missed identified multiple times by the media before last year her photos were used to represent nor sell man the wife of the orlando nightclub she. misrepresentation and misidentification is a constant problem if you're a muslim in america and as much as i work to fight this there are moments like this where i feel defeated or vogue magazine later posted an apology saying that they were sincerely sorry for the mix up they also added to that they were thrilled at the chance to photograph to goree and shine a light on the important work that she does but some on twitter do think the apology is not enough saying that she should be given another shoot and a full interview to in a future issue earlier we spoke with the founder of the muslim girl dot com she says the media needs to recruit from more diverse backgrounds to avoid the problem
7:23 am
of misidentifying muslims. i think this is absolutely a problem i mean not only is this an issue within the media but it's also an issue in real life as well it's very common for muslim women and also women from many other minorities to be misrepresented misidentified misnamed especially in the public eye in the public space the surest way that we can regulate mistakes like by hiring people of color and placing the mike in the hands of the people that we're reporting on and the stories that we're trying to tell that in this case it really shone a light i know what a big difference it can make right you know really can use somebody from a completely different background in a completely different profession or well really different identity i think really just shows how deep the problem really goes. now the leaders of russia and japan
7:24 am
are currently holding talks in moscow and finally signing a world war two peace treaty between the two countries a major sticking point up until now has been russia's corona islands which japan still lays claim to japanese prime minister has stressed that bilateral cooperation can yield results while russian president vladimir putin said he's happy that his meetings with his japanese counterpart have become regular well ahead of the talks hundreds hundreds to drag in moscow calling on the kremlin not to cede the disputed coraline's. it's guaranteed barely anyone possibly even zero people in this crowd have been all the way here seven thousand kilometers away roughly the distance from london to miami but the protesters are out there standing in the cold to defend the fate of this group of little islands. which also in this case means

7:26 am
ballet at moscow's bolshoi watching a judo showdown and even having a fun moment with mr putin's japanese dog something has always gone wrong with the peace treaty progress tokyo keeps saying it has a historic right to claim the south corals they call them northern territories moscow keeps repeating its sovereignty over the islands can't be questioned and some of the words that come out when russian and japanese politicians are not together aren't helping the inhabitants of the northern territories or russians. position in the negotiations is not about saying please get out of there a rather quirky thing to say when nothing's been decided moscow was unhappy with that at all so when smiles and all kinds of positive signals get mixed with a bunch of tough disclaimers you won't call pleasant even the journalists are left baffled what's up for discussion and what's not but what if this tuesday sees
