Police in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday shot and killed a 12-year-old boy who was carrying a BB gun. A park goer had called 911 to report a man waving a weapon in the air and pointing it at people, and when police responded, they claim the boy failed to place his hands in the air and then reached for the gun. RT’s Ameera David has more on the incident.
A discussion between CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and RT’s Anissa Naouai degraded into a tense back and forth on Friday, resulting in Naouai’s criticisms of CNN and its coverage of international affairs being cut from the finalized interview that was broadcast. After repeated questions which, according to Naouai, implied her impartiality was lacking, the RT host responded by questioning Amanpour’s own impartiality and potential conflicts of interest when it comes to US military interventions. These comments never made it on air. RT’s Ben Swann speaks to Naouai herself for a reaction.
