calling a donald trump to rage to kim jong un says the u.s. president was big here before threatening to destroy a north korea and warned he could test a hydrogen bomb in the pacific. and a fine impish to win over undecided voters in germany before sunday's elections with just two days left can chancellor maggots mean driving martin should get a last minute boost in support. so in a warm welcome to you i'm on the thought she. hopes are receding of finding more survivors from an earthquake in central mexico at least three hundred people were killed as buildings collapsed after tuesday's powerful tremor emergency teams are working around the clock to find people who may be buried under the rubble one of
12:02 pm
the most frantic efforts is taking place at a primary school in mexico city our correspondent karina chinoy has been talking to rescue workers there. this has become the most important symbol of hope for mexico city after the earthquake it sounds far silence please someone might be calling for help under the rubble. volunteers are equipped at least with a spade or a hammer so you know those german needle every one helps with a hammer or with bare hands lifting stones have you found people. yet as those are yes of course a lot of the little while i was there at least eight people were measured to prisoners. but meanwhile there are hundreds of people willing to help around the colored buildings in the city some are even turned away by the authorities they ask for more control that's what they're doing but what is it about. losing it's about
12:03 pm
controlling the number and they aren't there. once we are inside the end to see as them and go will of the people seems unlimited. people are working here for hours many of them for the last two days by their own side as who has been here for over twelve hours even fell unconscious but she still wants to help. that is why she was transferred from moving rubble to helping distribute food and beverage is. she strongly believes that there are still victims who are alive under the rubble. to see yes i really think so. this is why i'm still here even though i fainted at least i can help a bit here. and stay up. until when. i think it's a bit until i can no longer do so because these are my people this is my country
12:04 pm
i'm going to stay here as you well yes. according to the major of mexico city at least forty buildings in the capital have collapsed like this one experts say that people could survive up to three days under the rains this is why the atmosphere witnessing here is very tense people and the prayers are and they still hope they can find victims alive under the ruins it is a race against time. north korean leader kim jong un says he's determined to make us president are trying to pay dearly for what he calls the most vicious declaration of war in history and that's after trump threatened to destroy north korea fit a media release this photo of kim reading the statement kim was responding to trump's speech before the u.n. general assembly earlier this week kim cord transfer each unprecedented rude nonsense from a different door todd in new york and north korea's foreign minister re young hole
12:05 pm
father raise the stakes. i think the strongest ever hydrogen bomb test might be conducted in the pacific ocean. let me now draw in correspond to the straw that in the film there jason what are we to make of north korea's threat to test a hydrogen bomb over the pacific. well listening to what foreign minister rewash is saying it sounds like he was just improvising when speaking with journalist there is no sign right now that kim jong un regime is preparing to test a hydrogen bomb out in the pacific it would be logistically challenging of course north korea's previous six tests have all been underground in north korea but doing it out of the pacific would make it much more vulnerable to some sort of preemptive
12:06 pm
strike an opportunity to shoot it down by the u.s. or maybe even japan so no signs of that is a minute at all and north korean state media have hit out at their chinese counterparts accusing them of fighting with the trump administration if the fiction developing between the two allies for china is north korea's largest trading. and north korea and china have always been described as close as lips and teeth ever since china defended north korea during the korean war in the early one nine hundred fifty s. but i think beijing has. lost its patients with the kim jong un regime china does not want to see instability on the korean peninsula it is not pleased with kim's repeated missile and nuclear tests however you know this news that china is pressing its banks not to do business with north korea would be a sign that beijing is trying to squeeze the kim jong regime but there is no reason
12:07 pm
to believe that he would that beijing would squeeze pyongyang so much that it would collapse because at the end of the day china does not want american soldiers and in a south korean administered north korea to be on its border. if the element which has crept up on the border was between trump and kim jong un. right well i mean certainly took it very personally being called rocket man by donald trump it is getting very personal right now and we have a leader in pyongyang as well as in washington that is not afraid to call names and talk very bellicose rhetoric right gysin show that in seoul south korea thank you very much for that thank you let me now bring up to date with some of the stories making news around the one iran's president hassan rouhani has pledged to

12:09 pm
germany are gearing up for federal elections on sunday and both candidates for the post of chancellor are making a final push ahead of the vote and the latest polls have not been encouraging for martin shows his central and his soon to left social democrats were twenty two percent support the party is lagging badly behind chancellor angela merkel's conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. bloc those surveys suggest her christian democrats could take thirty percent of the vote on sunday both candidates will conclude their campaigns today. and let me draw in our political correspondent hands and run he's standing by at the. brandenburg gate in the heart of berlin. tell us of the countdown has begun what do we make of what our people our what's the mood like among people as they plan to go to vote on sunday. well the people i've talked to here mostly tourists from germany who are visiting berlin those tourists most of them in fact
12:10 pm
told me that they have voted already by postal votes that they have given their votes none of them would say who they have verted for but all of them say that it was important this election that they had to cost if it's there was one young man who said that he is thirty years old and this is the first time that he is voting because he feels that it is becoming very important actually to cost one's vote the background of that is of course many people have been saying that the major parties the christian democrats of america look on service and the social democrats the center left party of martin short's have been very close to each other they have been governing together for the last four years their policies are not that different from each other anymore and that has resulted in the extremes the political extremes becoming a lot stronger especially the right wing alternative for germany on the right hand
12:11 pm
side and on the left the left party. is continuing to be strong the people i've talked to have said it's important to strengthen the center to vote for centrist parties and that it seems that they are worried about the right wing prop ulysses actually entering parliament and of course concept of what to tell another would be critical in this election mecca and show if you don't get it question of who we win the race as we just mentioned in the a brief election fermi's or what do you think they might be a surprise at the end. it's very unlikely that there will be any particularly large surprise i think the first and second place are pretty clear i'm going to america and her conservatives will be the strongest party the question is how strong they will be the second strongest party will be the social democrats there's very little doubt about that again the question is how well are all back in credit in fact. sadly they're going to do the really decisive question is who will come third and what other parties will be available to form
12:12 pm
a coalition with. as chancellor obviously it's possible that the so-called grand coalition the coalition between through the two largest parties the conservatives and the social democrats could continue but there is quite a lot of speculation or feeling amongst voters that that might not be such a good idea in that case i'm going to america would have to choose two of the smaller parties and at the moment the only two that's come into question a lot market liberal free democrats and the greens and that would be a very wide range of political opinion in government very difficult to bring together to figure out if you will become the king making this an area of course maybe critical but i mean also talk about how do you know people i'll find them says a beach body will be good and both indicate it could very well be the far right if de lay yes indeed that seems most likely at the moment they have the in recent
12:13 pm
polls has polled at about eleven percent of the vote there are of course the three other smaller parties that i've mentioned the left party the greens and the free democrats all of those also in that range around ten percent so that race is very undecided although there is some warry amongst pollsters that the polls have not shown the true support for the a.f.p. for the right wing populous because they are still many undecided voters and many voters who are not really prepared to say that they will vote for the right wing probabilities so in the end it's the actual poll on sunday that will that will have to wait for. hands down in front of berlin's brandenburg gate thank you very much for that. because jimmy's election will have europe through attention on funny but today all eyes are on britain's prime. minister as she delivers a speech spelling out her country's key positions on break fed to resume is hoping
12:14 pm
to convince european leaders that britain is ready to cut a fair divorce deal after major tensions within her own government address later today in the italian city of florence our correspondent much us has been looking at the many divisive issues. what does bracks it have in common with a night out at the pub when the fans over someone has to pick up the bill it's a comparison many brits will understand. and maybe that is exactly why do you commission chose this example to demonstrate why the u.k. federal it sponsored commitments info. it is. like going to the pub with twenty seven friends. your round of beer but then you cannot leave while the party continues
12:15 pm
if you want to stay friends you pay your share of the final bill and for britain that's a hefty sixty billion euros. let's take a look at the biggest portion of the bill infrastructure signs and environmental projects such as this one in france all of these projects have been approved by e.u. member states but many still need to be paid for the u.k. share here amounts to thirty billion euros. another liability is pensions one option would be for the u.k. to only pay the costs of british e.u. officials but most experts agree london is liable for its share of all e.u. officials that's worth nine billion euros on the divorce bill the nationality doesn't matter all european union employees of europe to make the european union better and the united kingdom why it was a member benefited from the think of market and either european facilities now some
12:16 pm
good news for the u.k. has a share of the e.u.'s property and cash assets that will offset the brics a bill by nine billion euros but will they have to pay this bill you know very think legal sense do you. need to pay a penny. because when the u.k. . all european union laws cease to apply to the united kingdom including going north that govern the financial contributions in the wider but the e.u. parliament steve bracks if you go she tells me a good future relationship will require a settled bill. i have no experience in divorcing but i know that in a divorce. you cannot walk out of your house and letting the other family members alone without taking your financial responsibility which takes us right back to the negotiating table. that's not over for my. story to
12:17 pm
pay for the last round. and for more interest amaze address on breakfast later today let me join our london correspondent big mouth big it really money be top of the agenda and is the financial settlement key to breaking the deadlock between the two sides while a financial settlement is definitely one of the biggest stops that we've seen so far and we are expecting to reason may to make an offer today and the some that's been bandied around in the british media is about twenty billion euros now we've seen in the report that's a lot much larger some might be expected from the use sixty billion or maybe even up to one hundred billion euros but we do have to keep in mind that the e.u. also wants a deal the e.u. once britain to continue to pay into the coffers of the e.u.
12:18 pm
in order to not lose this money so both sides do want a deal and the devil will be in the detail how long is the u.k. going to pay and for what exactly are they going to be liable so we'll see whether we get any more detail of this later on in threes i'm a speech that this is a highly in dissipated a speech begin wonderful results may need to achieve and why she's speaking in florence. well of course a highly symbolic setting in the heart of europe a former trade capital and much of this is about trade about the future relationship between britain and the u. as far as business and trade is concerned so a grand sad thing about of course there is there is a maybe a mistake that she would have made she could disappoint i mean it's really sort of a grand vision i think that a lot of people at least here in the u.k. are expecting really for hard to find her own voice and to sat out what she things
12:19 pm
is the way forward what is the future relationship with britain and europe but also about the details and breaking the the some of these are deadlocks and some people here in the u.k. have said to her she really needs to be machiavellian and bold and clear and in a pun on her words that no deal is better than a bad deal they said that no speech is better than a fudge speech and then only our voices in brussels which say that the u.k. government is failing to send a clear message about what it wants from bradford what is your assessment about what terri's army wants. well i mean that's what we're all waiting for it's really about how close will britain stay within the next to the you is it going to be something like a switzerland association which is quite close which is what some of her cabinet colleagues are advocating for example the chancellor for the payment or is it going
12:20 pm
to be a much looser arrangement more like a trade agreement with canada which is what maybe boris johnson the foreign secretary has in mind so she's really under a lot of pressure within her own party there are these factions that are quite far apart from one another there are people in elkhart you say she doesn't need to give any money to brussels and transition periods are really not important at all so there's a lot of pressure and it's really the question where is she going to stay or what is going to be her assessment and this well we'll see if we are any clearer later today big mother in london thank you very much. a money jones joins me now from a business session is a big story developing on with the u.k. cashing company. exactly and we're staying in london with that because this is just in that has lost its operating license in london the transport regulator has decided that it is quote not fit and proper to hold
12:21 pm
a private license to operate private hire vehicles but can appeal the ruling within twenty one days and we'll have more on that story as it develops of course the two fronts where the president manuel mccall is to sign a series of the labor reforms into law today tens of thousands of people took to the streets already yesterday to protest the changes the measures make it easier to hire and fire workers and allow small companies to negotiate directly with staff rather than through trade unions mccall hopes the reforms will help reduce france's unemployment rate currently at almost ten percent. but the french economy of course is a heavyweight in the e.u. so doesn't brussels support him across a labor market reforms. and gives us the view from brussels or common knowledge is that france need to do this because the economy has been slacking almost for
12:22 pm
decades unemployment is almost double what it is for example in germany and many experts blame that on the lack of labor flexibility it's too expensive for companies to fire people to get rid of them and if they try to do so that it's very expensive but if you look at other numbers of the pictures it is a little different for example productivity is higher than it is in the united states that means that when the french do work they work well so it's a mixed bag and it's hard to tell but like i said common knowledge is this is necessary. the other big story of course german flag carry a loaf tons is poised to snatch up the largest chunk of bankrupt evelyn that is according to local media reports citing inside sources the times is reported to be considering a takeover of the bankrupt airlines in situ in a key as part of a bid to carve up the company the report say easy jet and condo to split evelyn's remaining assets the airline now says negotiations will continue until october the
