king solomon in riyadh after not seeing his resignation that two days earlier he quit citing fears of an assassination attempt against him but analysts say regional politics may be the real reason as in how to reports from beirut. this wasn't just an opportunity to talk the meeting between the saudi king so man and saddle had e.d. was as much an attempt to deny reports the lebanese prime minister had been detained by authorities in the saudi capital after he announced his resignation on saturday how did his political opponents have been suggesting he was forced to step down and is under house arrest in riyadh how did his decision to quit as prime minister brought down lebanon's coalition government a government that included hezbollah did blame hezbollah and its patron iran for meddling in arab affairs this plunged lebanon into a new political crisis and there are fears it may be at the forefront of the regional saudi iranian rivalry. and lebanon are divided into similar parties
7:11 pm
similar as hawks one is. and the other is proof that race which means if. things will be worth it that can lead to confrontation between the two parties like what happened in two thousand and six two thousand and seven two thousand and which can happen so that's why we should find a solution to keep or. it might be a while before that happens lebanon's president michel aoun has been meeting with representatives of the country's security agencies he is supposed to be holding parliamentary consultations to appoint a new prime minister but the constitutional process is now on hold. we have been told by the president that we won't take any decision before you know what the circumstances of how do you just resignation from the prime minister himself it will be hard to find a prime minister to replace according to lebanon's power sharing he must be
7:12 pm
a muslim and if internal stability is to be maintained he must be a consensual figure able to bring the rival parties together but this is not just a lebanese internal matter. the saudi minister for gulf affairs ephemera upon says lebanon will no longer be the same after had resignation he says lebanese leaders have to choose between peace and terror in other words they have to move away from hezbollah a party that has allies members in government and parliament as well as an armed wing of the risk of an open ended political crisis is real and with that lebanon risks again being a battleground for others wars. beirut saudi arabia has warned iran it will not tolerate any infringement on its national security after a ballistic missile target in the capital riyadh on saturday. by iran backed rebels from inside yemen and was aimed at riyadh's international airport saudi forces shot

a vigil has been held for victims of sunday's church shooting in southern and springs in texas which killed twenty six people including children. u.s. president all trump and japanese prime minister shinzo abyei say the time for talk with north korea is over trump has been on a visit to japan as part of a tour of asia. and never ends and justice minister says there will be no action there with the resignation of prime minister said hariri until he returns from saudi arabia. documents leaked to a german newspaper appear to show that thousands of the world's richest people have previously unknown investments held an offshore companies it's been reported that donald trump's secretary of commerce wilbur ross has ties to russian business is linked to people close to president vladimir putin and it appears that britain's queen elizabeth has avoided paying tax thanks to money funneled through offshore tax havens and hunt has more on the so-called paradise papers.
7:17 pm
more than thirteen million files taken mostly from the offshore law firm epilepsy and leaked to the same german newspaper that took hold of the panama papers last year this new release shedding light on who was secretly investing huge amounts of money in offshore tax havens there's a new global industry that caters to money that moves around the world and this money to tax havens and it used to evade taxes to hide assets to steal money if you are going to crime if you buy large businesses the paradise papers are being poured over by around one hundred different media outlets newspapers broadcasters from around the globe and over the next week they'll be disclosing their findings so why so much interest well first up the money involved here is huge boston consulting group estimates ten trillion dollars is held in these
7:18 pm
offshore financial centers and while most of us know them as text havens few of us actually use them that's because around half of that ten trillion dollars is concentrated not in the rich but in the mega rich think zero point zero zero one percent of households and while in most cases putting your money offshore and outside of your country's financial regulations is legal many argue hiding from the text men is unfair and critics say governments have been slow to deal with it. but it's more than an equality and a lack of fairness the offshore financial system is also incredibly secretive arguably enabling the wealthy and the powerful to hide their dealings and break the law very difficult when somebody is using five or six different offshore jurisdictions to get a true picture what they're really doing and in countries need that because law enforcement not easy to cross borders but crime can cross borders so this ross
7:19 pm
please come forward in day one of the disclosures and overdye they have been some big names donald trump's commerce secretary wilbur ross with apparent links to russian businesses and made to canadian prime minister justin trudeau using offshore havens to not pay text at home and revelations around the investments of queen elizabeth the second the law firm epa b. insists they reznor no evidence of wrongdoing but legal or not as more information rolls out the public will be assessing with the what's being done is ethical even appropriate or maybe given who's involved just not a good look down the hall and to zero one the senate's going to rosen jordan in washington so ross what's will rush be saying about this. well the commerce secretary has been saying both in a written statement as well as in a couple of television interviews that he didn't do anything wrong he said that
7:20 pm
once he was nominated to become commerce secretary that he disclosed under the extent of u.s. law what needed to be disclosed about his financial holdings he said he divest it of some things and he calls it basically ridiculous that anyone would accuse him of basically consorting with people from a country which has been problematic politically for the united states there have been a lot of questions as we know about whether russia has been interfering in u.s. politics most notably in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election but mr ross has told interviewers that he has done what is legally appropriate that in the case of his investment in a company called navigator which does business with a russian firm that ships natural gas around the world that he had no direct dealings with the russian company and certainly that he is in favor of trumpet
7:21 pm
ministration efforts to hold the government in moscow accountable for its behavior such as in syria such as in ukraine and in other places so essentially wilbur ross is arguing this is much ado about nothing but it is raising criticism here in the united states about whether he and others in the trumpet ministration have been one hundred percent forthcoming about their financial dealings and about other contacts they may have had with russian officials again because of the concern of russian interference in the us political system. if our government decided to sanction them that would be a different story the government has not so thus far made the determination to sanction so there's nothing wrong with that the fact that it happens to be called a russian company does not mean that there's any evil in it were there
7:22 pm
is evil is the misstatement that i did not disclose those holdings in my original form. as a rose he says he's done nothing wrong how much trouble is wilma ross in name ines . well there is some criticism coming from democratic senators who say that he should have been more more forthcoming about his international financial holdings while he was going through the confirmation process to become commerce secretary but some analysts have also pointed out that senators did question him about his role when he was involved with the bank of cyprus which is a has done a lot of business with rich russian people but they didn't specifically ask him about the work that navigator was dealing with russian companies including the one that has very close ties to the leadership of lot of mir putin the russian president so this really is
7:23 pm
a matter of watching to see whether there's enough political uproar here in washington to see whether his job is going to be in jeopardy but clearly there seems to be some competition for that because they're trying to deal with tax reform in this country there also again debating the question of gun control and so the what happens with wilbur ross could end up falling by the wayside because there's only so much bad with as it were here in official washington doesn't john thank you very much. a former politician and business been in kenya is challenging the result of last month's presidential run senior opposition figure john haroon wow has filed a petition in the supremes court president who can yet or was reelected with almost ninety eight percent of the vote after his main rival while loading the refused to stand turnout was below forty percent of polling was postponed in some areas because of violence a dingo called the election a sham and has demanded another poll less than

a landscape dominated by open costs mining they've been producing coal has since eight hundred forty four and germany still carves out hundreds of thousands of tons every day this from a country which bills itself one of the planet's most climate friendly nations in recent years there has been an enormous upsurge in the use of renewables here in germany especially when. coal still represents forty percent of the total energy mix and more than germany's coal fired power stations using coal. the lignite. here in shape but more than anything else. renewables cover around a third of the country's electricity demand but there's a view that the coal truth is hidden behind the curtain of germany's green energy revolution emissions actually a not dropping over the last two years we have seen basically constant emissions not increasing missions but constant emissions in the power sector by two thousand
7:29 pm
and twenty the government wants to read use the emissions roughly minus forty percent compared to the level of one thousand nine hundred so without a phase out of coal it's quite simple this goal cannot be achieved but some believe germany's climate promises were too ambitious a transition away from coal must be done slowly and cautiously. need to bear in mind that we cannot stop our industrial and economic life just save carbon dioxide they will need spirit justing of goals a realistic one option is to replace all power plants with new ones to reduce emissions. meanwhile the threats of thousands of job losses is not encourage germany's politicians to commit to ditching coal but that could change soon michael may have won the last election but she's in negotiations with the green party to help to form a government and the green party after months problem is that the old government
