i. think. it was. a u.s. and russia brokered cease fire comes into force in southwest syria people are enjoying their first peace peaceful day after six years of biting. and the top stories of the week havoc unfolds in hamburg zante g. twenty winds blowing to the german city leaving hundreds of police and protesters injured. i. and c.n.n. is accused of blackmailing the creator of the president trumped wrestling play
threatening to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. hello you're watching altie international with me roseanne oakwood line from moscow thank you for joining us but we start with breaking news this hour a huge fire has broken out at camden market in london according to officials some seventy firefighters and ten fire engines have been called to the scene part of the main high street in camden has now been blocked by emergency services there is still no information about possible victims but we'll be keeping you updated on this developing story. 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 one thousand people across three provinces have finally enjoyed
a relatively peaceful day. i know. that maybe i will let. you. know what most of all. the syrian cease fire came as an unexpected breakthrough following a meeting between president putin and donald trump on the front lines of the g. twenty summit in hamburg emily so you have 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 so they discovered you guys up russia the u.s. and jordan reach
a cease fire agreements with syria the cease fire will come into effect in three areas there are. 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 that this 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's 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 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. to regarding whether the u.s. is action on syria has changed i think it's become more pragmatic in general it doesn't seem to change but there's 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 breakthrough of 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 accused each other of violating them and so stairs there's still a lot of answer to questions regarding the syrian conflict and where the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government well 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 opponents. well the first meeting between the russian and american presidents was held behind closed doors of the g. twenty summit in hamburg this week much of what was discussed was not made public
but a lot of it 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 plenty 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 he will be able to restore relations between the u.s. and russia and bring cooperation between our countries to a new level however it wasn't only putin and trump drawing everyone's attention the g. twenty summit saw a lot of new faces as well as old friends getting together. was that. i. was.
a trail of destruction cars and piles of rubbish were torched shops were vandalized and looted on the right is also a clash with police have a two hundred offices were reportedly left in jude law after the first wave of riots many business owners boarded up their shop windows some said paul's the city resembled a war zone 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 where you were well as far as i could tell they were attacking the demonstration with no reason. which is part of a. civil war the violence was awful and i also to understand the message they
want to send me his 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 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 it. has a huge call of police officers that's marching through the city then leading 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 . there was 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 is certainly a very large police presence a helicopter flying overhead and many other emergency vehicles around but there's also an awful lot of demonstrators here. but.
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 what they have 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 lift with liberal areas 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 is a place called they are off the floor it's a major hub full of left wing groups here and it was from there that along. the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where a lot of the violence took place. here bronson from the alternative to gemini party told us that 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 but i believe that two groups of people who actually traveled to how 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 over 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 prostate your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard. the iraqi prime minister has traveled to the city of mosul of former islamic state stronghold to declare victory over the territory really a small pocket of militants now remains and they are expected to be defeated soon the development has been widely celebrated in the media. 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 there at the 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 raised 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 flee the area where thousands of civilians have been killed and the battle took a severe particularly severe toll on the city's children four year old howard was one of those who was lucky enough to survive. it's good to talk to them i didn't want to. turn up when i'd. just won an oscar for a child with a tough. nut. fit young fighting. silly child the floodlight see if i got up on them on monday gunn began a big shit on going to how the cussedness 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 unity government to come to. a yellow i'm going down with that to have to miss how the name in come with me should be in the new. facility to move home should be and. so the other other traditional. nonnegotiable i just someone. who has a little bit in money going to come. and look i'm going to been nice to those of 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 the ends of the city that's been raging very wary has come at an incredibly high cost we've seen much of the west of the city completely destroyed by ground fire and by air strikes 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 civilians concerns are 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 raúl this week in trying down the creator eclipse featuring donald trump wrestling the channel's logo the video was treated by the president himself just a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say to encourage violence against reporters however the channel found itself in hot water when it decided to find the man behind the mean word go. of has 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 doc 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 julian 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 in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind the clip hit back and he tweeted this response to the claims of blackmail he said the c.n.n.
line was misinterpreted. that they simply meant that c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still the damage was done and the internet responded with means bashing c.n.n. . we spoke exclusively to a moderator for the reddit web site from where the clip originated he else 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 an email from simo out of nowhere i would not be super and doozie asked about c.n.n. one of the largest new scheme unities in the world so you know it we can throw about telling you to start doing what you want to do on the internet policy and has no right to do that c.n.n. has all 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 formally declared war on it in return we need to hit c.n.n. we're hertz and told her every time is yours 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 there are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. our
washington correspondent jacqueline bouvier 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 memes 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 should any of your 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 to trim the trumpets 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 used twitter. and twitter has been around for a wound 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 mean. r.t.u. washington d.c.
as far as the wealthy areas of the italy going bust and we should save them because they're going bust well again the social bank the e.c.b. a jag they have already printed fifteen sixteen trillion dollars to bail out their friends their oligarch friends during sums to thousand and eight and they've said they signal to the marketplace that we've got another fifteen sixteen seventeen trillion dollars to print to make as many errors as you want keep making bad loans keep borrowing money at zero percent interest rate to buy assets of precious. paintings and shadows it doesn't make any of them a. little warm sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle is going. to do socks for the tell you that will be gossip and probably worthwhile for the most important news today. while the mocks of advertising tell
examination measuring blood pressure. this is mainly to avoid the donors fainting while donating blood which would slow down the entire chain. not a single chair in the room is empty an endless stream of donors with no time to recover after the donation twelve hours a day seven days a week. in view of such summary checks everything is based on what people say pay donations entailed a certain risk they encourage donors to lie about their health. such compensation also attracts a high risk population that sometimes has secrets to hide. i believe there are a very few. to be able to. question but the basic laws know enough to use computer.
