Issued on: Modified:
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.
