wrestling clips threatening to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. with the top stories from the past seven days and right up to the moment developments as well welcome to the weekly here in our to international my names you know neal our top story this hour the german city of. enduring a string of violent protests against the g twenty summit while the event went smoothly for the leaders of the world's most powerful countries for three consecutive nights riots broke out on the streets fifty thousand people rallied on saturday.
toughness. chefs to escape the shootings that they had. while leftwing militants from across europe converged on the city they torched cars on piles of rubbish vandalized on looted cars and left glass and debris strewn across the street the rioters also clashed violently with police well the violence reportedly left at least two hundred officers injured many business owners after the first wave of riots took steps to protect their premises boarding up windows some said parts of the city looked like a war zone peter all of our was following the arrest there for us. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. i
can see the main body of the crowd as 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. she's part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also don't understand the message they want to send me his violence is simply tragic. that is a call some form sportscar belief that's being taught shia 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 if. he has a huge call the police officers that's marching through the city then leading the demonstrates is. 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 water cannon we see . there's 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 this intersection here this junction had to be cleared there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see water kalin 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 have based here about what their plans were some were saying they were going to pull them up some loeb 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 lift with liberal areas especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators it is one of the major centers for 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 well to floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot. the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place so. cute
bronson is from the alternative for germany party earlier he told me but given the strength of radical left wing sentiment in the city violence was 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 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 peaceful demonstrations they were set for trouble you have these i
call them demolition tourists they travel from all over europe i know 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 you approached it your protest always always be peaceful to be heard away from the violence one of the most anticipated in countries of the g. twenty was the russian president's first face to face meeting with donald trump in the meeting seem to have exceeded expectations bringing about a potential breakthrough for the syria conflict there the two leaders agreed to establish a cease fire in the country which has come into effect artie's at least two promised more. 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 to discover russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreement for syria the cease fire 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 avoid 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 the optimistic tone of this 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 with 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. happen agreed on and both sides have accused each other of violating
them and so it's there's still a lot of answer to questions regarding the syrian conflict and one of the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government. let's get some expert analysis now by writer on syria firs joins us live on the program you're very welcome how easy or difficult is it going to be to monitor tain this cease fire. actually if you look helo for a solution look at their agreement that two sides from one side you have the russians and subsequently the syrians in. harmony and agreement that trawl through money or kazan's. cases of restraint the cases of control. not answering the intimidations and breaking of other sides and from the other side
of the agreement you see the united states and its allies. lies the problem that lies the. uncertainty of compliance. if the usa are not serious about their foreign affairs policy and agenda and are serious towards respecting agreements respecting their woops respecting international laws and regulations whether united nations or you and security council all by that i don't like russian american new agreement. the experience that we had in syria does not is not very hopeful but one would should always hold for especially if it's a case of troops and saving lives why do you think that resumes were chosen
particularly for this ceasefire we don't generally hear a lot about these areas. actually looking at this area as you're graphically. an area that actually to jordan from one side and to the israelis from the others. the players in this area from the government side you have a very clear to play here which is the syrian state and its allies from the other side you have the armed groups including and majorly. practically in syria this area that we have pointing has a very important backyard which is. syrian desert that expands towards the jordan and the jordanian iraqi border. the question. all these. interests and agenda meet together for
a final solution or. president putin described. another practical pragmatic approach to the crisis in syria or maybe another time buying one over to the group and. that's the question isn't it do you think that following the talks at the g twenty summit that the u.s. is going to take a more pragmatic approach to syria which is what the russian president vladimir putin actually suggested. actually president putin as well. explained how the american policy works. in an interview in a previous interview with a small. one would only hope that the americans themselves can i agree to a one to one policy and can respect each other's administration now that trump
administration is facing an internal opposition a very fertile opposition. may break any agreement he can make we have experienced this were president obama before and we have experienced him with the home. we are already a member of the hawks of. all. taking a very. illegal immoral decision against syria hopefully he developed the was done from that from that time and he needs to have resolution. lead his country and not be led by backstage syrian writer abdul haidar thank you very much for coming on the program this hour. most of what was discussed after the meeting in germany which was held behind closed doors remains a mystery. did give a revealing insight into his first face to face with the american president. 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 corporation between our countries to a new level. however it wasn't only putin and trump drawing everyone's attention the g twenty saw a lot of new faces as well as old friends getting together. i .
in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. washington washed. over voters in business around this country business. who must say it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. local blogs selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle. to stop spreading tell you that every gossip and public. tell you all and by. all the hawks that we.
will walk. twenty minutes past the hour welcome back c.n.n. find itself sparking an internet meme war this week tracked on the creator of a clip featuring donald trump wrestling the news networks logo now the video had been tweeted by the president a few days before leaving c.n.n. to say it encouraged violence against reporters however the channel find itself in hot water when it decided to find them behind the main taking up the story of. 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 ah it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had to 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 these docs saying it is digging up private information on someone or with something and then publishing it can be used for law enforcement for business extortion coercion harassment online shaming and vigilante justice the reaction has been furious even songes way did 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 see. 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 definition of blackmail when the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who originally wrote about the mean this honors identity tweeted this response to the blackmail claims he say's their line was misinterpreted they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about identity still the damage was done on the internet hit by a with even more c.n.n. bashing means.
thank. you. thank you we spoke exclusively to a moderator for the reddit website section where the clip originated. to conceal his identity. just say you're the sky high on a solo the guy who posted the original gif it would be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls random e-mails from see mail out of nowhere i would not be super enthusiastic about c.n.n. one of the largest news communities in the world sending out boy threats 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 attack 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. we're hurts untold or ever tell is yours that you do not approve of them by running ads on their network our site right now on the right of the people who are pushing the c.n.n. black milk hash tag that are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. the us threatened north korea with military force on wed in state after appealing young test firing the missile that warning came during an emergency meeting of the un security council. the united states is prepared to use the full range of our
capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies one of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces we will use them if we must america believes it was an intercontinental ballistic missile that was launched by north korea russia's the fence ministry however does not believe that the sort of range on ses that was not intercontinental moscow is currently calling on both sides to try to find a political solution to this them to russia together with china laid out a set of proposals for easing the tensions they suggested that north korea stop testing its weapons and that the u.s. inside korea suspend large scale military exercises in the region there green meant would also have seen washington hold its the point of missile defense systems and so korea well it was rejected by washington on whedon's this so all on washington fired their own missiles into the sea of japan which were seen as warning shots from north korea a number of analysts have told r.t.
it's america's actions that could create a conflict in the region. but north korea launched a missile that wasn't intended to hurt anyone and it did not hurt anyone and what we saw at the united nations today was the continuation of the spectacle in which the united states and her increasingly view are lies or using by the international body of peace as a client of global apartheid to justify and rubberstamp wars and saying sions which amount to war they're going to be watching today's proceedings they're going to hate the united states even more than they already do they'll see russia and china is countries which don't necessarily always agree with them countries which on allies to them but countries which do not wish them and the people of all the countries that want to engage in peace the countries that could end up saving north korea from american aggression and they will smile upon that surely the u.s. is sending the same message that they have been sending for seventy years and that
is to threaten again and again and again the people of the democratic people's republic of korea and the reality of us endless endless threats on the people of korea has ratcheted up now the sanctions a new round of sanctions a new round of threatening other countries that have any trade or economic relations with the d.p. r. k. . that's your news for dog r.t. international. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive immunoglobulin my body gets and some
bodies that i cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity knowing does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it. applies more. to put money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plasma as well as. your own motor car and. one of the risks of pay donation in it then is proof that the frequency of pathologies is much higher in paid donations and it. if i was lying. over two years old he was. in the money. and who runs the blood business.
