8:03 pm
parliamentary session from going ahead the castle president says he is representing the will of his people the majority of catalan voters did not take part in sunday's independence referendum the spanish government says he's acting outside the law by trying to enforce an illegal referendum result governments have missed to put demands messages a journey to nowhere because there is no democracy outside the law there is no clear existence there are no rights outside the law for a long time is to push them on has been living outside the law outside reality and outside sanity. in barcelona people say they just want the politicians to make a deal. i'm very well aware of the problem we have facing and the solution must be found this is like a divorce there's no coming back you cannot divorce today and get married to morrow . the situation is very tense we've reached the stage where the spanish and catalan

8:05 pm
make concessions and so far neither side is willing to make concessions they have think holds for mediation for example the european union. the mayor of wasilla. that coal but so far this is seems to be not being heard by the european union so far so it is a very complicated situation and as long as no one really gets on to making concessions then it's the solution is going to be really far away ok so the solution is nowhere in sight and sophia what happens now what happens next. well the constitutional court today suspended monday's planned session of the catalan government on the catalan parliament basically. so now nobody really knows if the session is still going to be held on monday or not and if independence is
8:06 pm
still being declared to not if it is being declared. madrid would have to act and one of the options madrid would have is triggering an article of the constitution which would basically strip off catalonia off its autonomous rights and basically that would mean that madrid would take over the power or the control here in catalonia in a possibly deteriorating already or very difficult situation imo sophia some high level officials say you alluded to the e.u. a little earlier on fear that things could go over the cliff spiral out of control our people that you've been talking to during your time there are worried that this might happen well yet people are definitely incredibly worried i was just talking to him and he approached me couple of minutes ago and he told me. he was very afraid and that he really didn't know what was
8:07 pm
happening and that what would happen next. i don't really know if people are really a phrase a civil war breaking out but they are definitely afraid of the social and the economical consequences that this situation could have. sophie seaven reporting from barcelona thank you. british author could sue or sugar or has won this year's nobel prize for literature of the year prize committee i hild his work for questioning assumptions about how we connect with the world around us while the writer himself called the wind amazing and totally unexpected and he wasn't the only one surprised by the nobel committee selection. every year when the nobel prize in literature is announced there's a media circus this year it's especially big the jury has selected an international

8:18 pm
in individual growing areas you know a twenty percent drop across germany doesn't mean every produce it was down twenty percent between when you took your one infant winter sheepish for twelve but the three largest wine producing areas in the country right has the polite an eight and bought in each saw drops about twenty percent from the year before the few gains came mostly from the east germany's numbers are comparable to overall declines across europe italy and france are also reporting much lower grape yields yet there is good news the quality of this year's grapes is better thanks in part to late september sunshine what does it all mean for consumers the price of riesling could rise but wine producers could also take a hit for the anthem but it is a big challenge for individual produces they'll lose money no question because international competition is too fierce for them to raise prices accordingly in and

out of it. quality will have to make up for the difference. four days after the last vegas massacre there's no new information about the shooter as more thanks a lot. christoph because investigators in the las vegas massacre suspect that the gunman stephen paddick may have possibly planned to escape but there are still no concrete clues about the motivation behind the worst mass shooting in modern u.s. history all with key questions still unanswered investigators are trying to understand the gunman's state of mind police say the las vegas shooter stephen paddick rented a room at his downtown hotel the ogden during a music festival last month called life is beautiful it's not clear why he made the booking. reasons that ran through patrick's mind is unknown but it was directly during the same time as life and. we have recovered. evidence
8:20 pm
from that location we don't know if it is evidence but we have recovered items and video it was from another hotel the mandalay bay that patrick fired the shots which killed fifty eight people attending a country music festival route ninety one and injured nearly five hundred investigators have recovered a note and several surveillance cameras from the scene. they now believe the shooter intended to escape after the massacre and did not initially planned to kill himself police also hope that this woman mary lou danley will be the key to unlocking the motive in a statement read by her lawyer danley denied any knowledge of his sinister plans. he never said anything to me or took any action that i was aware of. but i understood it anyway to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen investigators say
8:21 pm
the shooter appears to have led a secret life that he spent decades acquiring weapons and ammunition they described him as disturbed and dangerous near the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern u.s. history those caught up in the aftermath are still left asking how could it have come to this. germany's top intelligence officials have just faced a public grilling in front of a parliamentary committee a first of its kind the session comes in response to controversy surrounding the work of german spies and calls for more transparency here's a look now at what intelligence officials reveal today and how the cases that have drawn public scrutiny. the some of germany's intelligence all in one place the heads of both the foreign and domestic security agencies col and one skilled mohsen and military counted telegin steve coast of comm have come together

third calamity all three agencies knew about and is a movie but the tunisian still managed to commit a terror attack at the berlin christmas market last year in the case of the intelligence agencies blame the police but their overall complaint is of germany's difficult structures the country's complex federalism the separation of police from secret service and inadequate take knowledge. after three hours of questioning members of parliament had mixed opinions so i would have thought for example that the opening statements might have been used specially on the part of the domestic and foreign intelligence agency to publicly apologize for the mistakes and scandals of recent years because i may say that it was a successful first performance even if we did not experience anything revolutionary today as expected. even so the intelligence agencies and this supervisors have provided more transparency and that after all was their aim the openness of the
8:24 pm
intelligence agencies is new but there are also many new problems cyber attacks encrypted messages and more and more potential perpetrators that's why the agencies have asked for improved working conditions and that's something politicians cannot publicly ignore. i want to bring you up to date now with some of the latest sports news headlines and former bahrain coach. has confirmed he is close to a deal that would put him in charge of bahrain munich for a fourth time the seventy two year old with coach the german champions until the end of the season succeeding carlo ancelotti who was lego i can say most recent tenure at byron ended with his retirement back in two thousand and thirteen after he won the champions league bundesliga and german cup titles. germany's world cup qualifying campaign continues on thursday night when they visit
8:25 pm
northern ireland while the world champions are the only team in group c. boasting a perfect record with eight wins in eight games but northern ireland are the second best in the group having lost just once so far while the germans however have some special motivation they qualify for next year's world cup in russia if they avoid defeat. the germany team braving the elements in belfast on wednesday as they prepare for their clash with northern ireland the germans have won every world cup qualifier so far most recently dealing norway a six neil spanking but they haven't always looked at hundred percent convincing and coach you walk in live knows one of their biggest enemies will be complacency. shocked a lot of suspects you can see it's clear that next year as reigning champions and conflict cup winners the hardest thing will be to maintain and call on this.
8:26 pm
superhuman motivation he lets you that will be our biggest task. not just because of. germany will be facing a northern ireland side that are guaranteed second place in group c. leap frogging germany into first is all but mathematically impossible that means they'll need to win out in a playoff against another group runner up to qualify still germany aren't taking anything for granted in this contest. going on going into their very unpleasant opponent to be facing supported by very loud fans it'll definitely be a tough task for. anything but a win will of deservedly or not unleash becky elation that this germany team isn't at the level of the unit that won the world cup three years ago that shows just how high the expectations are. as serious hopes of reaching the world cup for the first time were still alive and kicking after a dramatic one all draw with australia in an asian play off of the war torn

8:31 pm
independence referendum on sunday. could sue ishiguro has won this year's nobel prize for literature in churches called him a deeply original author whose works boosted exceptional depth if you grew is best known for his book the remains of the day which was adapted into a hit movie. now it's one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time world leaders and scientists are meeting as we speak in malta to discuss ways to protect the world's oceans they cover seventy percent of the planet a major threats to our oceans include over fishing while as the population world's population grows so too does the demand for fish about a third of global fish stocks are close to being depleted climate change is another key issue our oceans absorb access a greenhouse heat and c o two gases and that impacts underwater organisms rising
8:32 pm
sea levels also threaten coastal communities and livelihoods and pollution of course is also a major threat and it's not just a matter of trash washing up on our shores contaminants like micro plastics risk getting into the food chain now the chief diplomat for the is at the conference and malta let's take a listen to what she said earlier. when oceans healthy they are one of the greatest resources we have if the oceans we're a country they would be one of the greatest reward economists and for sure they would have a seat in the g. seven. millions of jobs and livelihoods depend on our whole show. fizzer come we're getting a speaking there from malta well for an example of just how pollution is impacting our oceans let's take you to two islands off the west african coast to a south korean ship a well disposable plastic bottles are common there because tap water unfortunately
8:33 pm
is not always safe to drink but without a proper collection system many of the discarded bottles and up in the sea well now new a local initiative grassroots initiative no plastic is trying to mobilize locals to help keep plastic out of the marine environment. he said if a nanda has a busy day ahead of her the twenty four year old is committed to making principal his dream of becoming free of plastic come true on the. good morning up i've come for your plastic bottle so today's collection day. that you got i'm already. recycling plastic has become a major activity on the island since twenty fourteen when the no plastic campaign started. without a proper disposal and recycling system all these plastics could have ended up in the sea. fernandez works for the biosphere research team that started the campaign
8:34 pm
for every fifty bottles they hand out a reusable container made of stainless steel. have been made over the plastic so we have four tonnes of plastic stored on the main island of south america a maritime transport company is helping us by taking it to lisbon free of charge to recycling companies there will receive it. they want the island free of plastic by twenty twenty one of the challenges actually comes from the sea tiny particles known as micro plastics washed up onshore spanish scientists might have a sense c.e.o. has been asked to analyze the beaches. most of the sample is organic material and not many plastic particles at first glance that's a good sign the beach appears to be very clean but we can't identify many fibers with the naked eye what looks like hair could turn out to be plastic it needs more
8:35 pm
analysis. but while the sand is relatively clean that could still be a high concentration of micro plastics in the sea going plastic free it's no easy task but the people of principle are determined to do what they can. and the spy does and if it does of course plastic waste remains a major issue around the world let's bring in eric from this ability he is a climate scientist at it at university and he researches the impact of plastic waste pollution on oceans a very good day sir thanks for coming on how much plastic waste is there in the oceans there's enormous amounts of plastic waste we estimate that just you know the plastic on the surface of the ocean is two hundred fifty thousand metric talked it was even more marine is that the amount of president going into the ocean every single year is five million metric tops now not to be defeatist but can
8:36 pm
plastic waste at this stage still be removed from the seas or is it too little too late well no i don't think it's too little too late i think it will be hard to take out what their first in the ocean right now especially the most harmful plastic you're really small plastic that we also saw a report of the that is almost impossible to dig out at this point but if keeling is that there's more plastic coming our way we are producing so much new plastic every single year that if we don't do anything about it in five years time we'll have. maybe almost double as much plastic as reuse and now it is going extremely fast so what could we do what's the best way to protect the ocean said going forward. i think that we really need to focus on the lads that is where the plastic come from and that is also where we need to say stop and drink be environment and the girls are the closer to the source as we do that the better it is because if
8:37 pm
you think about it it's not only to plastic in the ocean is harmful it's also the classical the beach is sort of classic in a reversed it's a plastic anywhere in our car you know car it's so really trying to stop it close to where the source is and you will make a huge changes all the down the environmental. and the so do you think a way to start is to just ban a plastic bag says many places have started doing well it's really about reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in the environment the plastic back then could certainly be part of that. legislation to stop blasting in cosmetics is also part of that but i also think it is about getting a better ways but it's about making sure that if people do recycle their plastic that they can be certain that that plastic actually dent doesn't end up on the fire
8:38 pm
line right to it across a bit as a climate scientist at is deaf to diversity in the netherlands thank you so much for providing us with your insights. on how we want to bring up to speed with some of the other stories making news around the world. a suicide bombing in southern pakistan has killed at least twelve people and injured dozens while the blast went off at a shrine in baluchistan province a local official says one of the dead was a policeman who tried to stop the bomber from entering the shrine. russia has been rolling out the red carpet for saudi arabia's king solomon this is the first time or reigning monarch of the oil rich country has visited moscow the oil market in the war in syria are two of the subjects that president putin and the saudi king are discussing during their high stakes meeting. the head of brazil's olympic committee has been arrested as part of a probe into an alleged vote buying to win rio's bid for the twenty sixteen
