clashes between. protesters and riot police water. crowds. as the summit itself kicks off all eyes will be on the first face to face encounter between the russian on the u.s. president's. create. no right to anonymity despite the network frequently using. the radar. gun owners who are on the terror watch list this
country suffering a string of attacks. coming i from our international center here in moscow this is art. welcome to the program there was an early start for twenty protesters in with a sit in blockade which seoul police used tear gas to disperse them the pictures we're looking at now are live pictures from the northern german city well police say they are expecting as many as one hundred thought to turn up later in the german city where the summit's taking place several protesters have been injured during the demonstration security. forces used water cannon and pepper spray to
disperse demonstrators who threw bottles stones on flares up the officers there were also violent clashes yesterday. was. was. was. wow. was was. well activists have been protesting against the two day meeting of world leaders who are expected to discuss challenges like terrorism on climate change our europe correspondent peter all of her husband following the rallies in hamburg. tensions
have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. we're seeing another line of police now marching doubleton running basically away from where that was taking place as far as i can tell and i'm from that. of missing anything leaf had fights about squatters houses and ola off never seen anything like that leigh aggression the as far as i can tell purposelessness is that a wooden englishness it is now it is now. never seen and have my face heard of mace and everything there is a militia. just behind me you can see some smoldering remains then out from a trash fire that was start says. that is a. sportscar belief that it's been. now there are. eight seems
roaming the moments of as small bits of violence and what you saw will also last time is just how quickly it can start and then the police come in to try and put it out but whenever they put it out in one place it seems to pop up elsewhere we understand from the police that they with ordering people to remove their masks they were refusing to do so then want to come in we used pepper spray was used. well despite there being a whole load of stories about potential violence coming from demonstrators in the build up to this large gathering we have been hearing from one member of the local polman here and how much is about the role the police could play in provoking violence yesterday was a pic demonstration twenty to thirty thousand people that was very very peaceful and i was the same and indeed it was nearly the same. from which we're come today
in the evening i talked to those who. appealed for this demonstration and they say we want a peaceful demonstration but i fear of there will be an escalation because the strategy of the police is slow to deescalate if it's a child beat and it might be those people who want different. way of contradiction as well hear the crowd chanting away than sci fi she's that build avanti fall chance going on to old under the watchful eye if we move the camera over here over the watchful eye of a lot of police officers. which is to keep a bit vigilant here because we are saying oh we know it's flour 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 if. he has a huge call of police officers that's marching through the city then leading the the demonstrators they're only going to be allowed to go in the directions that the
police want them to and the result is what we've seen it's we've seen violent clashes with the police we've seen calls set on fire. as well exactly the situation we have at the moment right now. while thousands have been clashing with the police angered by the summit it seems that the world leaders have so far been having a good ole time together. well
after the g twenty summit itself wall of the most highly anticipated meetings is that of the u.s. president donald trump i'm glad i'm here putin has more on that. the spokesperson has told of sternal of say here that mr trew mr trump and mr poe said hi to each other they had a handshake and for now although that ended there after they said see you later to each other yes still they're going to have these laws and to subpoena talks scheduled for the afternoon you really don't have to be an expert to understand what are going to be the main topics on the agenda first of all of course the washington moscow bilateral ties that's something that's only been getting worse months after month and besides this of course syria north korea ukraine speaking
of the anticipation it looks like that it's not only the journalists that are first of all looking forward to the summit of the leaders of russia and the u.s. if you look at one of donald trump's latest tweets he specifically singled out his meeting with vladimir putin that he is looking forward to now in the meantime back in america some news organizations keep going on about the story of russian spying and hacking here's one of the top stories on c.n.n. on friday they're saying that must go has expanded its spying activities in the u.s. and for that they're citing the current and former intelligence officials who are aware of what's going on and the trumpet ministration current and former intelligence officials are telling c.n.n. the russian spies the stepping up. in the u.s. pale action u.s.
authorities have detected an uptick and suspected russian intelligence officers entering the u.s. going back to the actual g. twenty summit and i can tell you that all of the leaders are already inside the how messy that is the g. twenty venue there ready for the sessions for. a lot of old talks angle merkel has been welcoming all leaders personally with a handshake we saw her with can tell you that exchange was quite warm they had a shout out but twenty seconds there was smiles on their faces when she shook the hand of donald trump they were also smiling despite the controversies and some of the statements that were made by the leaders of germany and the u.s. when you talk to the journalists that is absolutely evident that they are waiting for this number one event of the g twenty summit.
at the summit media center this is where all g twenty news reports are but. if you want to know what and who is going to grab most media attention at the summit i'll teach you a trick just look at some of the pictures around you for instance the papers that you can find at t.v. live positions like this one. the most important things that you will be looking out for at the summit of the most important. they want to retain from me that's one of the for me things and the entire time it's to be the first place face. to hear think everyone out there will be you know it's like your wage we'll be like kind of our business to alpha male was going to go in together negotiating together on both of
them on a very strong leadership of our country to come like wildfire and i think it's based on putting in a lot of kind of the ones we want to get a little of a get a part especially on the controversy with the russians potential involvement in the american election i don't believe it's really family. a time in which we. would. take my word for it if this event turned into let's say thirty or even fifty for everyone in this media center the number one pick or number two pick perhaps for the top story would still be the handshake and the talks between. trump. well this g twenty summit is expected to be one of the most challenging issues of divided world leaders. looks
at some of the contradictions. the motto of the g twenty goes shaping the interconnected world but the countries that make up the world's greatest economic powers are an awkward fit to say the least it's true that some have been getting along swimmingly take german chancellor merkel and her chinese counterparts to handle diplomacy. goes toward linking up if you try to add in mr trump things fall apart for one terms bromance was she only over courtesy of north korea tensions and trump and merkel don't like either the chancellor doesn't even refer to the us as a friend anymore of course they didn't get along from the very start really the german people look at the overthrowing this woman i don't know what the hell she's thinking it takes wits to convince people with facts instead of using thinks she was person of the year i was supposed to be person of the year and trump isn't the
only mismatch for merkel her relationship with everyone turkey's president has been going downhill as of late head of the summit he was told not to bring his troublemaking bodyguards and was reportedly denied venue's to make a public address and that wasn't much of a surprise really after erda want to kiss berlin open up the practices potential for conflict was a tertiary. we want to avoid additional reasons for conflict now if we try to put into the mix he fits great with china but not so much with merkel sanctions over the crisis in ukraine are in their way and the same issues keep russia and the e.u. as a whole from connecting the e.u. and its turn is that odds with italy as its promises to help deal with the refugee influx have yet to come to fruition yet another disconnect there we are left to the public is taking twelve coda to the groove taken exactly good enough the king of saudi arabia decided to simply let the table and skip the summit altogether. as for
the remaining g twenty members there just is mismatched to the idea of a completed jigsaw puzzle with the g twenty members shaping an interconnected world seems almost impossible it's much more likely individual elements will find each other never coming together with everyone to make the full picture. washington d.c. . we heard from international relations professor dr hussein baiji who sees the sheer amount of issues needing to be discussed is going to make for a very challenging forty eight hours. of. troubles with the breaks it all delayed to. come from within the union we have different voices so this. has a lot of big to learn contraries have to find them for the.
turkeys. a lot of troubles there will be german of the whole. truth of german relations very hard to. stick me that. after months of reporting on alleged russian meddling in the u.s. election using named sources c.n.n. seems to be changing its attitudes towards. one of the channel's own political analysts no sales people do not have the right to stay anonymous it was in response to the backlash the network faced for threatening to reveal the man behind a viral mean featuring president trump wrestling the c.n.n. news local reporting is kill up. again and now thinks that we the people do not have the right to be anonymous this is how kirsten powers their political analyst explained it in a tweet. people do not have a right to stay anonymous so they can spew their racist massage honest homophobic
garbage now that's an interesting argument coming from a network that's been running stories about trump based on unnamed sources for months they started anonymous sources according to this source who spoke on the condition of anonymity anonymous sources are the basis of most truthful reporting oftentimes you do have to gather information using anonymous sources say can i use your name and they say no can i use you as an anonymous source a source familiar with the matter they say yes and then we report the information on the air we heard c.n.n. use this phrase so much it's actually spawned a number of online memes sure c.n.n. protects their online sources but the way they see it if you post something online that they consider to be offensive they have the right to reveal your personal information to the public something that could actually put a person in harms way oh and they get to decide what's considered to be offensive as well apologized for some of those other houses that were racist anti-semitic and
that is not publishing to users name because of his apology think bribery in reverse they get said to me say listen if you are if you're a track that read it they there's a couple of bucks for you that will be bribery kind of sort of but if i were is if you listen if you don't retract that right at the i'm going to expose you i'm going to docs you i mean let everybody know where you live how to let people know where you live what you said things you've said perhaps you might be politically correct things that might cause you problems with your job it's almost a blackmail coercion but it's unprecedented c.n.n. may be a powerful news agency but just to proclaim to them the policeman of what's considered to be offensive in the end u.s. law has the final say caleb mup and artsy new york. concerning connection between gun ownership on the terror watch list has been revealed in fronts we've got the details i thought after this break.
the point where people describe the system as being seized with a kind of paralysis. nineteen minutes into the program welcome back france's interior minister has revealed the worrying figure to run one hundred registered gun owners in the country are on the terror watch list. i have asked local police to identify the registered owners of firearms on terror watch lists we have identified about one hundred people and the author of cesar taking action to correct the situation this appears to be a significant dysfunctional. only nineteen comes just
a couple of weeks after the latest terror attack in central park us when a car full of weapons and gas canisters rammed into a police. the attacker was the only person killed in the incident the thirty one year old man was a known gun enthusiast and also on a terror watch list french journalist and author of the book just how this front's alexander mendell sees the legal gun ownership by people on the terror list isn't even the biggest concern. he shows that the. carelessness of french bureaucracy you have ten thousand people that are registered on the watch the least on the. east end you have about one percent of them that legally own weapons the frightening thing about that is that they have access to shooting ranges where they go to to train where
sometimes even to. meet local police policemen and to talk with them and they have information about security it's not about the weapons themselves it's more about the fact that they are they have access to these shooting ranges where they can train to shoot. moving on american arts and crafts retail chain is being accused of acquiring ancient artifacts which have been smuggled from iraq the items include topics containing writing in an ancient script called cooney for use thousands of years ago in mesopotamia which is now a part of modern iraq also among the artifacts a clay object used as a seal known as a belie prosecutors say hobby lobby agreed to by thought of artifacts in twenty ten for one point six million dollars well the u.s. justice department says the company was even warned by an expert. of such cultural
property from iraq carissa risk the objects may have been looted hobby lobby has agreed to pay a three million dollar fine to give the items back here's the firm statement on the controversy the company was new to the world of acquiring these items and did not fully appreciate the complex cities of the acquisitions process this resulted in some regrettable mistakes. well the illegal sale of the ancient treasures is also a record of for eisel which makes many millions from selling them although the terror group's more notoriously known for destroying priceless pieces from history. well who are and how. this.
is. the looters themselves obviously these are the people on the ground who are doing the digging up and the looting they more importantly they are responding to the mother but this is a market with a supply and a demand and the supply is driven by the month so for as long as it's going to be the month from western countries these goods are going to flow looters will loot and they will dig up the stuff and most more concerning for us is that. there is now a clear connection between terrorist organizations like isis like al qaida. like taliban and the profiting from this looting and so it is even more egregious if you will it is even more concerning for us that people who know this and yet they still continue to buy these goods and sell them on. it looks like italy's being left
alone to sort out the worsening refugee influx problem out its ports after e.u. ministers fail to find a way forward to share the burden instead members want to target ngo rescue boats from north africa which are suspected of being exploited by people traffickers in just a matter of days up to twelve thousand people have landed in italy while more than eighty five thousand of arrive since the start of this year at least top muffy a prosecutor believes the crisis has created a security threat. those who arrive on the day then undergo a process of radicalization that may lead to the realization of terror attacks meanwhile the head of europe's. and for sprint agency ses the terror threat on the continent sits at a twenty year several of the terrorists who carried out recent atrocities in europe came through the med route from africa to italy but the spite italy except in the biggest number of migrants it has thus far been spurred must terror attacks we
discussed why that might be with italian police officer and union leader gianni tonelli. said the easiest prey for islamic radicals are desperate men those who are criminals or are in prison a muslim who came to italy and is integrated and has a job is not easily influenced by islamic radicalism the desperate man is willing to do all he can to redeem himself but for these men to be sacrificed in the holy war means social redemption and being respected we try to control what goes on in prisons but it's not easy as many of these muslims are in prison for minor crimes for this reason they are not isolated on are in contact with other prisoners so it is easy for them to come into contact with the extremist element but. of course the video that was. at the beginning of the migrant crisis in europe i
explained that there was no security field so i said terrorist could come and hide here easily i mean the problem of information exchange is not being adequately addressed by european intelligence services we are all very busy with our own problems and there is no common spirits the interest of some countries prevail over others. watching the hawks week of music specials continues next with singer songwriter chris lists. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive in. my body gets and support is that i cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity no one does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it. applies more burn people put money
on your car. you don't have all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plasma as well as come from your own murder and. one of the risks of paid donation. then is proof that the frequency of pathology is is much higher paid in it. if i was lying when i. was over two years old he was. using the group and who runs the blood business. like comcast for example is
a company that is an anti-american as they get it as if it's a company as anti-democratic as it gets comcast for sale on n.b.c. of course they owe us out of that of course i live parody epic sketches and see think that their banks sold at sacking the current ministration was the same time serving the terrorists so those people are in that so situation should understand that they are terror. greetings and salutations french poet novelist victor hugo once stated music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent for many music is indeed that conduit which allows us to voice everything
from our rage our love our politics our happiness and oftentimes our heartbreak when the world around us would rather we stay silent the great singer songwriters overcome this oppression whether internal or external to provide us that great freedom from oppression. when done right they use their mix of talent dedication and vulnerability to craft songs that truly capture the emotion and spirit of the human condition their art talent and courage to lay their thoughts and emotions bare gives us those great moments in our lives when a song truly captures who we are what we want and what we feel inside that we we desperately want to share with the world around us so today let us not remain silent and celebrate the singer song.
