hello and welcome money terry martin good to have you with us spain's highest court has banned a parliamentary session in catalonia that had been scheduled for monday regional leaders had signaled they were going to use that session to declare independence from spain but it's unclear what effect the court's ruling will have cattle and lawmakers have already defied a previous ruling by holding last sunday's unauthorized independence referendum. it's the latest twist in a political crisis that's dividing not only spain but also catalonia a crisis that's seen both sides digging in and refusing to budge. this is the council on parliament where the region's leaders were expected to declare independence from spain on monday but spain's constitutional course has now banned
8:03 am
their parliamentary session from going ahead. the council president says he's representing the will of his people there were a 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 that happens happens mr putsch demands messages a journey to nowhere because there is no democracy outside the law there is no courage existence there are no rights outside the law for a long time is to put demand 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 a solution must be found this is like a divorce there's no coming back you cannot divorce today and get married to morrow
8:04 am
. the situation is very tense we've reached the stage where the spanish and catalan governments need to ease tensions they need to talk and international mediation would be perfect. for the deadlock continues the separatists have called for mediation but the spanish government says it won't enter dialogue until they drop their threats of declaring independence. or for more on the independence crisis i'm joined by our correspondent. lola and journalist martin roberts who is standing by in the spanish capital madrid first to you fairly in barcelona do we know what the catalan parliament is planning to do now will it defy that court ruling and can be in on monday anyway. it wouldn't be the first time that they would defy a decision by the constitution of course we've seen that play out of course with the referendum and also if you listen to the reactions that we are given here
8:05 am
yesterday by the president of the catalonian parliament who sad that this decision by the constitutional court curtails the freedom of expression here and is basically sort of like a censorship to the work of the catalonian problem it sounds anything but positive or rather very defiant even though the president of the catalonian problem and did not say whether they were pushed across the had the the session with the parliamentary session on monday it very much looks like that's going to happen that they will stick to this road map on monday and even possibly the independents terry martin in madrid a very different perspective there of course if the couple on parliament does convene on monday what options does the spanish government have while the most obvious one which is being received about weeks or even years. ago. which would allow the central government to actually directly really because of the
8:06 am
. moves that speculated that they might do about to dissolve the council and fresh elections. but you do like to see what. the other thing of course is. that could lead to. problems on the street you have to then you especially if they transcend. civil go to try to impose terror now fanny many voices are calling for dialogue between the two sides those voices include the mayor of barcelona and barcelona's world famous football club any sign of that dialogue materializing. that is correct also the government here behind me the government of qatar no one is calling for that dialogue not for the first time but only under the conditions that the independence the collaboration is not going to be negotiated now under dos
8:07 am
conditions i got in madrid is not willing to step in and to have a dialogue because they say that's only possible if got to lower returns to the table of law so pretty much there's a dad logs and so far there's no sign that this is going to be resold why the time is running is friday now and as i say a possible declaration of independence with the possible consequences or violence etc is nearing could be viewed in the next few days that that declaration of independence on monday is made. when complex get to this point a deadlock often there's mediation martin do you see any signs that the government in madrid could take a more diplomatic approach and consider a path of mediation. well i think the problem we have here is that neither side has been showing any signs of for. us for the madrid government well yesterday money an overhaul of the prime minister out rights rule times and the prospects of
8:08 am
talks on the unity of state. and again i think the i do see said they're not going to. ignore the constitution i'm not going to get into the email as they see it on the other hand don't even he didn't say so i don't think they've ruled out any other options in an otherwise hard hitting speech the other nights the king did say that within the framework of the constitution said look we can work this out you know we've been through more difficult things but one of the options vanity developing is and has been since the tax deal the counselor because that does seem to be one of the biggest group says they have it's the same situation as they say you know what's essential don't they get that although again the beginning of a trip we would say well actually we have a lot more. snow i mean there is a possibility what ra is that it's please don't declare independence of ours it will be consequences ok thank you so much with that was martin roberts there
8:09 am
talking to us from madrid and in barcelona funny thank you both very much. u.s. media are reporting that president donald trump could soon declare that the iran nuclear deal is not in the u.s. national interest that deal saw the easing of sanctions against iran of course in return for curbs on its nuclear program white house sources say trump is expected to decertify the nuclear deal soon that would leave the republican controlled congress to decide whether to reimpose sanctions trump has long criticized the pact which was one of the major policy achievements of his predecessor barack obama international monitors have found that iran is fulfilling its side of the bargain trump however says that's not the case the iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence bloodshed and chaos across the middle east
8:10 am
that is why we must put an end to iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement and we will use our washington correspondent carolina tells us that donald trump is set to deliver a major speech on iran before oct fifteenth that's when a report to congress on the iran nuclear deal is due. well the move for to mark the first had been a process that could eventually result in the reception of u.s. sanctions against iran and we are expecting donald trump to deliver a speech on the iran deal next week just days before the october fifteenth that line to report to congress congress will have to the side then if iran is complying with the agreement and vote on whether or not to impose further sanctions but it is still unclear if even the republican led house would vote in favor of killing the
8:11 am
iran deal the fact that the u.n. center national at tommy energy agency has confirmed that iran is still complying with the deal could that maybe encourage the u.s. congress to vote in favor of maintaining the deal and therefore against trump it is currently in a charm or there in washington let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world today a top advisor to pope francis has appeared before an australian court to answer sexual abuse charges cardinal george hill is the highest ranking catholic official to be to face such accusations the seventy six year old is accused of multiple sex crimes but details of the case have not been made public. and the head of brazil's olympic committee has been arrested as part of a probe into alleged vote buying to win rio's bid for the twenty sixteen olympics seventy five year old carlos last month is accused of helping to arrange

8:14 am
horrible like this was going to happen. investigators say 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. you're watching t w news still to come hurricane force winds batter north of in germany leaving seven people dead that's just gusts up to one hundred eighty kilometers an hour sweeping across the region. and is cattle as independence fever contagious other separatist movements across europe are watching the situation closely including spain's own basque region. first a scandal rocking hollywood's multi billion dollar film industry gary hart has more

8:16 am
people traditional farming will likely not yield enough so alternatives are needed at the a new car food and beverage fair in cologne you can taste today what we will eat tomorrow. there's nothing like the taste of a freshly cooked the furka but mark post wants it without the beef the researcher has been busy for more than a decade developing a method to artificially grow muscle tissue in a lab test tube of beef so to speak then in twenty thirteen came the breakthrough. the stem cells he needs can come from a steak or a cow and the animal doesn't even need to be slaughtered the first burger created from the artificial meat cost around two hundred fifty thousand euros but mark says his idea is on the verge of revolutionizing the way we eat my personal vision is that at some point you know twenty thirty forty years from now we will eat culture
8:17 am
no longer for us i will probably look back at this time as sort of barbaric that we still killed animals and used animals to such a degree for our meat consumption. but until then he's got competition there are other future foods on the horizon insects for example are packed with protein and nourishing snack and even if many westerners can't yet to bring themselves to fight between the liquor locust a whole host of looking to convince shoppers otherwise. other companies are placing their bets on plant based now richmond they're hoping to better use the space that cereals or vegetables need to grow to that end then looking up literally vertical gardening could soon be making a contribution to the diets of people worldwide. insects and vertical gardening box one of the inventors of the artificial meat there within the report is joining
8:18 am
us now mark possed is a professor for physiology at maastricht university in the netherlands and a co-founder of most certainly the dutch company that wants to bring the first lab grown beef burger to the market mark thank you very much for joining us this morning first things first what does it what does it taste like and don't say like chicken. now it tastes like beef actually. it did the first version was still pretty dry because there was no fat tissue in it but we are now also growing the tissue so the second one should be a lot better. if you actually like it to enjoy beef in general i love it yeah and so do a lot of people that's the problem. so when can we stop killing cows. well that first hamburger will be on the market in about three years all the companies that are working on this seem to think the center along the same lines
8:19 am
that will still be small scale in order to replace the entire industry which is obviously a massive task that will probably take before like decades so currently that this bug would cost two hundred fifty thousand euros that's a bit steep for my taste one can buy one for two years and fifty cents maybe. as i said in three years on the market probably around ten euro for a hamburger so not quite at two fifty in order to get to two fifty or even lower than that the technology needs to improve we know where to improve it it just will take another couple of years to get there. it sounds a bit gimmicky at the moment but will it really help feed the well that's the solve the problem in the church and in the world yeah the problem with meat or animal proteins in general is that there are very expensive it costs a lot of resources to get there and this production method has in it that it can be
8:20 am
much more efficient so much more efficient use of resources and then if we try and form to debt we can easily feed ten billion people do you think it's adopt this technology is adaptable is a complicated can it be can factories bring up anywhere in the world. it's not very complicated we actually. designing a machine to do it at home so it is that easy you can you can transfer it for me to do something that you can do at home so if you can do that you can do it pretty much at any scale anywhere in the world marc klaas professor of theology at maastricht university thank you very much for joining us this morning welcome thank you about spain's fourth largest bank banco subbuteo considers to shift its headquarters away from the spanish breakaway region of catalonia somebody else has

8:22 am
cranes have been toppled and trees uprooted some falling on to vehicles with fatal results. those lucky enough to walk away from the wreckage were shocked by the sudden onset of the storm. and for it was nothing unusual beforehand we were driving along calmly and then my windscreen was suddenly smashed to pieces. in berlin taiko and shauna felt airports temporarily suspended operations on the ground the national rail system was brought to a standstill. but passengers found traditionally german ways to pass time. so we bought some beer and ice and things will get going again at some point but it will take more than beer to get things going again at this industrial complex in payment where the roof blew off or for those who lost property and lives to the

storm. germany's top intelligence officials have just faced a public grilling in front of a parliamentary committee the first of its kind hearing the session comes in response to controversy surrounding the work of german spies and calls for more transparency here's a look at what intelligence officials revealed today and 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 and one skilled mohsen and military counted telegin steve list of come have come together for open questioning by members of the bundestag for the first time it's a step towards more public control over the agencies since a series of blunders has served to discredit them in recent years. the first slip of the domestic security agency was long unaware of a right wing extremist terror network the endless you could important evidence once
8:24 am
again vanish without the federal agency finding out in three days now they are legislative change and this change indicates that the domestic security agency must receive all information regarding extremism on terrorism not. the second mistake for years the foreign intelligence agency of the b. and d. money toward international partners with no legal basis a green party delegate ask what has changed it's has it become more or less and can you give i mention my own size very short most of it and it has become much less the 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 of the country's complex federalism the separation of police
8:25 am
from secret service and inadequate technology. after three hours of questioning members of parliament had mixed opinions haven't yet 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 yes because what if 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 in this supervisors have provided more transparency and that after all was there. the openness of the 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 improve working conditions and that something politicians cannot

8:30 am
like family. an international brand. an exclusive journey into the song of by a munich. to me is suddenly a phenomenon starting october fifteenth on d w and on line. welcome back here with the w. news i'm terry martin our top stories spain's top court has banned the catalan parliamentary session on monday in which the region's lawmakers were expected to declare independence from spain the country is facing its most serious political crisis in decades after catalonia held an unauthorized independence referendum on
8:31 am
sunday. all the tensions in catalonia have also focused attention on spain's other separatist hotspot the basque region it fought for decades because the central government in madrid separatist violence claims hundreds of lives. before militants agreed to disarm earlier this year basque leaders are supporting catalonia as push for independence and despite the police crackdown on the referendum they say they're more determined than ever to hold one of their own. it's a busy day for newsstand operator isabel about taking. here in bed when the basque country the catalan independence referendum which was banned by the spanish government has headline news events in catalonia are being closely watched. it depends how things go. but it could be good for us because we want the same as they do things need to change. the cattle and vote could set
8:32 am
a precedent the basque country might be the next region to hold a referendum separatists have been fighting for independence here for decades they argue that the basque people have their own language and their own culture. many people here are outraged by the violent police crackdown against supporters of catalan independence. two peoples one find reads this banner at the university of the basque country. many basques are calling for a referendum like that in catalonia. these days the council and independence movement is stronger than the basque one. but now when we express solidarity with the people of catalonia we always stress that we also want independence that means that where they must get that we're going to have that. roberto di on day is an expert on constitutional law at the university he says that
8:33 am
a fresh push for basque independence is underway in the past it was led by extremist parties and tainted by the movement's terror campaign but now it has mainstream support that is at home and calls for greater freedom. if a direct participation such as a referendum could be come down to. even people who are not biased nationalists could become radicalized and want their voices to be heard. the basques know from bitter experience how violent the fight for independence can get the yet a separatist group killed hundreds of people over four decades this year it disarmed with the ottomans that things can turn out the way they have in catalonia but things could also turn bad again the movement could become radical so i don't know. internews standard take he isn't getting carried away she's glad the
8:34 am
public is interested in taking its future into its own hands. number that no it doesn't worry me on the contrary i think people just want to express who they are and that they want their freedom. but it may never be them she says that if the police respond to a referendum as violently as they did in catalonia then it's no wonder that more and more people are sympathizing with separatist movements in catalonia and in the basque country. well a man who once dubbed germany's james bond who spent his career catching criminals has himself now run afoul of the law a court in the city of boston has found venom owl's guilty of tax evasion using offshore accounts miles claimed the accounts were set up by intelligence agencies to fund his operations while she was handed a two year suspended sentence and ordered to donate two hundred thousand euros to charity. the former undercover agent he done to the hood he's writing code for the
8:35 am
entire trial a trial that could have gone a lot worse for him prosecutors wanted venom out for more than six years for tax evasion the case revolved around thirty five million euros packed in foreign banks and the mouse's name prosecutors say should have paid thirteen point two million to the state but the court decided on a reduced sentence. and therefore it is not as good a chief judge ruled that despite his advanced age of seventy seven years the accused had no prior convictions and he being of considerable service in that time of all of that can be considered when handing out a sentence to his. mouse was active for years as a secret agent for west germany and foreign governments he's credited with freeing hostages in south america aiding in the arrest of already of terrorists and finding poison barrels in italy surveys or disaster to finance their operations the defense claims anonymous donors set up a fund and made mouse its trustee. we wanted the
8:36 am
charges dismissed. but considering he was found guilty the decision was very measured and in the end acceptable. even sorry mouse has indicated he intends to appeal to germany's federal high court . floor in this case i'm joined now by did a bit of a report when a mouse has been called the german james bond does he really deserve that reputation. well at least van the most is the most spoken off spoke in recent german history and many of the deeds we have already heard of and in the report they sound a bit like they came directly out of ian fleming's book ian fleming being the author of the james bond stories and venom i was claims that he was some sort of free agent helping the german security agencies freeing hostages from colombian rebels or lebanese warlords and even saving pope benedict from from
8:37 am
being poisoned by the italian mafia all of these stories of course can't really be very fied and the german security authorities have always been very tightlipped as soon as the name value mouse evolves but it seems to have done the trick a little bit as of the dutch as we have already heard only sentence down amounts to a two years prison sentence and that also on parole now this court case focused on off shell offshore accounts what more do we know about these accounts and where that money came from well the whole story evolved after the pun i'm a paper issue wittman public part of the papers being a huge data leak that showed how money laundering and offshore accounts were many especially in panama and other of countries and these states have made it possible to link down
8:38 am
a mouse to several offshore accounts and trust showing that that there was a huge amount of money stocked up for him that he even used to false identities covert possible would passports passports issued even by german authorities and. and man on mars always claimed that this money was given to him by unnamed security authorities and unnamed security officials for funding his secret service work but the prosecutors said that he used this money for himself to fund his flamboyant lifestyle. we heard in that report there the venom else is planning to appeal the court's ruling even though his own lawyer said the ruling was acceptable why would most want to want to appeal or can always only just speculate on that one but it appears to me and it's a bit that he wants to one wants to save the myth around him he has always been that the name van i was here in germany has always been rather mythical it's always
8:39 am
has been everybody knew the name but nobody knows the face nobody really knows the truth about when i was in something that was something about a mouse i think very much enjoyed and if we listen to the stories he told in front of the court about all the lebanese war lords and about how he saved hostages and how even safe the pope it seems that he wanted to save the myth that was created around him robert thank you so much stayed. there talking to us about that of miles you know welcome. to east africa now and it's been twelve years since the self-proclaimed lord's resistance army retreated from uganda leaving behind a trail of devastated communities millions of civilians suffered under the rebel groups brutal campaign of abductions rape and murder many remain scarred by the conflict now a new initiative is giving medical and psychological support to victims some of whom have never seen a doctor. st josephs hospital in northern uganda

a swedish community is in the process of moving their entire town kiruna is located one hundred fifty kilometers north of the arctic circle and buys on the edge of an iron ore mine after ground on the town's outskirts began to cave in the locals decided to relocate now homes are being moved one by one and the mining company is footing the bill. without its huge iron ore mine this town in the wide expanse of lapland wouldn't exist but the mine is also its undoing for more than one hundred years they had a symbiotic relationship but now. has to be moved the mine is creeping closer underground the house is no longer safe. the flatbed trucks here what doesn't get torn down will be piggybacked. today house number b. fifty two is hitting the road it's a so-called inkpot house
8:45 am
a historic building that's high precision work they'll want to. beam is higher than the other ones but we need them level otherwise it's not going to work. the truck is laden with around one hundred tons the entire old neighborhood from the mines beginnings is to be moved. the trucks will drive two and a half kilometers to this place where the new town of kirana will be established. for the past ten years terma has photographed every important step of the process he's already published three picture books documenting the move he and his friends own the small bookstore here. we want to be one of the first in the new town we're proactive about it of course we're also worried we might even be able to take this old house with us and be at the new location pretty
8:46 am
promptly. the. it will be another five years before the town center is moved many shop owners are worried about how to bridge the time until that happens you're having gold who runs the local clothing shop her grandparents started this resigned. whole song harder in part. in every family there's at least one person who works in the mine or is dependent on it so if they say we have to move then that's the way it is and we have to get used to that the war on. the ground beneath the town is wearing away and caving in to drive viens are developing the pits cracks a growing moving ever closer to the town. the flatbed haul would have speed fifty
8:47 am

against azerbaijan they will have completed the best world cup qualifying campaign so their preparations really could not have been better so things are looking good ok so germany going into the world cup with a lot of momentum let's look at england they qualified also last night with a late winner against venia are they also candidates for the title candidates for the top and i think that could be a bit tricky now they do so qualified they have qualified undefeated in their in their campaign. but the match last night was once again as a kind of fairly often tends to be with in the little bit dull the crowd with throwing paper airplanes around and you know when the spectators have to make their own entertainment the football that's being offered on the plate probably isn't of the highest caliber and so we'll see when it comes to the tournament they've got harry kane of some good talent in their squad but the tournament is obviously a very difficult challenge compared to the qualifying campaign remains to be seen stay with us tom want to talk about another qualifying match in asia yesterday
