THE OBSERVERS

A show produced with photos, videos and personal accounts from our Observers around the world - all checked by our staff here in Paris. Saturday at 10.15 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2012-03-23

Putin's luxurious black sea palace, solidarity between Muslims and Christians in Egypt and wild mustang roundups in the US

Lorena Galliot presents a news show produced exclusively from content provided by amateurs: photos, videos and personal accounts from our network of Observers around the world - all checked by our staff in Paris. First run Saturdays at 8:10 am Paris time.

Presentation: Lorena Galliot. Editorial Team: Julien Pain, Segolène Malterre, Sarra Grira, Peggy Bruguière and Paul Larrouturou.

STORY 1 : RUSSIA

 

Our first Observer says he has proof that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is using dubiously acquired funds to build himself a luxurious palace by the Black Sea. Putin’s press secretary says the Prime Minister has no connection whatsoever to the palace. But our Observer has a very different story.

 

 

Observer : Sergei Kolesnikov in Praskoveevka, on the Black Sea coast.

 

STORY 2 : EGYPT

 

Our second Observer is a Christian from Egypt. In these troubled times, he says that a photo showing fellow Christians forming a human chain to protect praying Muslims from police gave him hope. 

 

 

Observer : Mina Zekry in Cairo .

STORY 3 : UNITED STATES

 

 

Wild Mustangs are a living symbol of the American West’s free pioneer spirit. But a US government agency says there are too many of them to live sustainably in wild rangelands. So they round up horse herds with helicopters and lock them away in closed compounds. Our Observer says this is animal cruelty.

 

Observer : John Holland in Arizona.
