their home. and a top german court is set to decide on whether to ban diesel vehicles in cities across the nation after emission levels were found to exceed new limits. plus an arctic storm dubbed the beast from the east slams into europe temperatures plunging to record lows killing at least seven people across the continent but also bringing snow. and in the bundesliga dortmund star marco royce grabbing and pearlie goal against hausberg but took the hosts hold out for a win. i'm brian thomas a very warm welcome to the show we start off in syria where russia has called for a daily five hour paulson hostilities that's a. specter to begin within the hour at nine am local time now this comes after the
7:02 am
international community appealed to russian president vladimir putin to use his influence on syria to enforce a truce the ongoing bombing of the song play it has left more than five hundred civilians dead in just a week and there have also been unconfirmed reports of a chlorine gas attack also says a humanitarian corridor will soon be put in place to help civilians flee the rebel held area the international committee of the red cross in geneva as welcomed the move. matters now is that he planned it out they did it out of their free wheeling and a dignified conditions and of course and security for themselves and at the same time it is obvious that it is critical for aid to be late even we speak of four hundred thousand people you cannot take all of them out you have to allow humanitarian aid in and this is extremely. unfair for more let's go straight to moscow and aaron top
7:03 am
standing by for us there aaron the russian president has ordered a daily cease fire in eastern guta how will russia force this ceasefire and how are civilians expected to benefit from it. well details on the ground here in moscow are a little bit sketchy so far we've heard information coming out of the kremlin and military circles in moscow detailing some of the humanitarian aid that will be provided to. the people who are taking advantage of the humanitarian corridors we've been told that they were received more meals at certain assembly points on the periphery of the city and will also be providing some type of medical assistance as soon as they arrive at those points now regarding your first question how well i should be able to enforce it you have to remember that this announcement this cease fire announcement was not made unilaterally by russia russia is of course but the sorrow assad's chief partner and she from supporter in the
7:04 am
international community and this deal was most likely discussed with him in advance with his government in advance so they already have what's our all assad on their side. in addition to that you have to remember that this deal is actually into best interest the assad government wants to maintain pressure on rebel groups in the city at the same time it doesn't want to make many of these headlines that were seen about the civilian casualties so this type of ceasefire deal allows them to claim at least publicly that they are doing what's in the best interest of the civilian population while maintaining the military campaign ok now how much influence does lattimer putin have right now with bashar al assad. well as i just said there moscow and vladimir putin is the biggest ally of boxall assad on the international scene now you have to remember it was russian military support that allowed the allowed damascus while the assad government to actually
7:05 am
maintain power they turned the tide if you if you'd like providing both intelligence and military support several years ago if it weren't for russian support on the ground it wouldn't actually be possible for the assad government to maintain their military campaign against the rebels and also on the international scene russia has to a certain extent become kind of the mouthpiece of the assad government the government is of course a pariah in the international scene so what we've seen time and time again both in the media and also i am at the u.n. and russian representatives have kind of become. the force that gives the assad government the political backing to help establish the narrative that is the assad government needs to at least politically maintain their campaign against the rebels so at the end of the day if it weren't for russia the assad government couldn't really maintain their campaign against the rebels in its current form until thanks so much for that from moscow this morning. now for some of the other stories making
7:06 am
the news at this hour. saudi arabia's king psalm on has fired some of the country's top nor tarry officers in a major shake up now they include the military chief of staff general abdul rahman albany on and other defense officials no formal reason has been provided for the move which was announced early tuesday. the front runner in colombia's upcoming presidential elections in sabah pedro has alleged voting is at risk of massive fraud it claims the decision not to digitize the results from the country's polling stations makes fraud more likely colombians will vote in the presidential primary on march eleventh. well the central european nation of slovakia is in shock after a young journalist and his girlfriend were found shot dead in their home twenty seven year old young work for a news website police believe he was killed because of us were investigating corruption linked to top politicians in the last report examined the financial

7:08 am
a full confidence but but you are going to go with a lot of pressure on the police because you go campin you bring the property murder serious. the slovakian government at least appears serious about finding killers it has offered a one point two million u.s. dollars reward for information that could lead them to the perpetrators. still to come on the show a bell that's striking a discordant note in a tiny german town we'll tell you why locals are divided over what to do with the nazi era church bell. press office here now in his five g. the future sooner than we think well it is a red hot topic brined because making our already very smart phones even smarter is something that is harder and harder to do and that's why many say the real innovation at this year's world congress in barcelona is in the tech network that keeps us connected the term on everyone's lips is five g.

7:11 am
well some see there's a revival of ancient trade routes some say it's a way of heightening china's influence on the world whichever way you see it china's belt and road initiative is a massive undertaking it aims to connect almost seventy countries of german companies believe they could benefit greatly from this so-called new silk road but despite the big potential there are pitfalls. the gigantic project is expected to cost a total of nine hundred billion dollars it involves sixty nine countries together home to two thirds of the world's population china launched its bells and road initiative also known as the new silk road five years ago it consists of two major trade routes the land based silk road economic belt winds its way from china through central asia the middle east and on to europe. the maritime silk road creates a ceiling connecting southern china southeast asia india east africa and also
7:12 am
europe. industry representatives say the project off is enormous potential for german companies which can deploy the necessary resources. if it involves developing physical infrastructure especially in central asian countries which aren't as well linked or developed and that's clearly something which well known and large german infrastructure developers are it's very much at home with. but there could also be plenty of orders for small and medium sized enterprises they can supply specialized machinery and other equipment to foreign partners involved in the large scale projects so there are some high hurdles to clear. as a good because many projects on put out to tender or financed by the chinese banks in the same way we used to doing things here and there are plenty of challenges when it comes to calculating prices as well. on top of that beijing hands over
7:13 am
eighty percent of the contracts china is funding straight to chinese companies many of the countries along the two routes are politically unstable and there's a high risk of payment default but german business representatives still hope companies here will manage to get a piece of the new silk road action to venezuela now and their country's currency can't get you much these days on. just one single dollar on the black market so as hyperinflation makes all. creative uses for the valuable paper. a pile of boulevards waiting to be processed richardson go via turns them into handbags or wallets even head gear he left venezuela a few months ago his monthly wage was worth a paltry two and a half dollars now he's got his own stall on the border with colombia he needs

7:15 am
a decision with potentially far reaching implications first off a final decision is being made in germany today on whether major cities can ban heavily polluting diesel vehicles the country's top administrative court and set to rule on the move after some seven these were emission levels exceeding. now the main offender nitrogen dioxide which can cause serious respiratory problems there's more. there are more than fifteen million diesel vehicles on germany's streets drivers find the reliable and economical and they're popular with businesses transporting phrase in goods but the future of that's popularity is in doubt in the face of a possible diesel ban vehicle sales have slowed the new regulations address concerns over high levels of nitrogen dioxide in diesel emissions the gases linked to cardiovascular and lung disease in a study in his federal environment agency research has linked nitrogen dioxide in
7:16 am
diesel exhaust fumes to some eight thousand primary deaths from heart related disease. i don't think politicians are serious about the results of these studies because otherwise we'd have to really enforce these driving restrictions. regardless of any doubt surrounding the findings one think is certain traffic contribute significantly to nitrogen dioxide pollution and the main culprit is diesel. levels are over the limit in the hof the measuring stations in germany residential areas are the least affected. dartanion in those places on average we see values between twenty and thirty micrograms per cubic meter which is well below the limit excess values are really just an issue on busy roadways and few have
7:17 am
a fun and. the highest levels are found in large cities such as stuttgart cologne and in which have to most to lose from the new rules shipping companies and other trade industries warn there's a ban could put the delivery of goods to cities actually is. actually we'd have to shut down immediately we can't krantz put our goods by train so we had no other options next under us and michelle measures which have been announced include improved public transportation networks and electric passes this should provide some relief in cities affected by the driving man. with so much at stake i'm joined now by my colleague simon young good morning simon from a political desk simon can you give us a broad picture of what exactly is at stake with this court ruling today you will
7:18 am
formally this is about whether city governments can introduce these driving bans and cons of vehicles diesel vehicles in the absence of a nationwide regime but of course it's really part of a much wider battle about the automobile and about the air that we breathe if the court does decide that bans are allowed well i think it's going to put a lot of pressure on specific cities where there's a problem with filthy air. to do something to introduce such a ban pretty swiftly as you've heard there at least seventeen german cities that are regularly not meeting their emissions targets and the e.u. for instance says that four hundred thousand people across europe doyin every year prematurely. as a result of emissions from diesel vehicles so this is a potentially very significant that we're going to have today ok and what it would mean is not a blanket ban for all seventy cities or for all of germany cities would individually
7:19 am
be allowed to decide what they're going to do this is my understanding here i mean some cities in germany have already tried to introduce these bans will said that they would like to see that's been challenge so that's why it's in the courts. and of course not every city thinks that a ban is the right way to go the government itself including the expected grand coalition the new government that's likely to come in soon here has said that it would like to avoid driving ban for diesel vehicles because obviously they're worried about the effect that could have only economy dots some cities say you know we have to protect people this is a health question and we need to take drastic measures ok so it's a health issue versus economics in many ways as an adult but what about the connection to the diesel gate scandal specially regarding v.w. and emissions and how they're there were incorrectly measure yeah i mean i think if
7:20 am
the court decides in favor of diesel bans that's going to give another argument to all those disgruntled diesel vehicle owner is who are going to say look my vehicle that i bought is effectively useless it's just a lump of metal i can't use it to get to work and that's going to give them another argument as they seek compensation or other redress in america of course the call make is of already paid out compensation in many cases in europe it's a very different picture and people are still waiting to get something back for having bought diesel thinking it was a clean option turns out it wasn't so you know more litigation possible on the horizon if the court rules in favor of lot against thanks very much simon young for us this morning. or saying in germany right now we're turning to a discovery in the little german town of hex i'm a bag that set off a local political crisis a church bell bearing a swastika has been ringing away for about eighty years and the village church
7:21 am
tower many not know about it now they do tells people are divided over whether the bell deserves to be preserved or banished. out of sight out of mind since one thousand nine hundred thirty four a bell in blazing with a swastika and the words everything for the fatherland has been charming from the church of sent jacob's belfry. since german television reported on the bells several months ago the town has come under pressure to remove it or put it in a museum but now the local council has decided to keep the bell this despite fears it could become a pilgrimage site for neo nazis. in a museum that would really attract people like that that come to take selfies in front of the swastika that can't happen here in. the church's long time organised secret pitas says that for years she knew nothing about the hitler bell she says
7:22 am
she was appalled when she found out about it see existence that. this bell is dedicated to a mass murderer who caused in measurable human suffering all across europe and this bella calls the faithful to worship so i misquote distances. when the story first broke many people were shocked by the affection some people have for the bell . to make such a lovely sound it's not the bells fault again with the bow that's history. i believe it's one of only three bells in the country that carries this inscription and that's something to be proud of. this statement ultimately caused roland to resign as mayor his words were condemned by the central council of jews in germany and he quit to avoid being removed from his party he was replaced by velika
7:23 am
a retired pastor who ran on the promise that he would keep the bill having gained national notoriety far right protestors turned out to rally to keep it as have opponents calling for the bill to be removed the event jelly called church of the polenta night has offered to pay for the bills or be replaced however the town council says these funds could be better used to renovate the church. now it's been called the beast from these the cold front that has blasted across much of europe here in germany temperatures dropping to the lowest so far this winter with a low of minus twenty seven point five degrees centigrade that's recorded at the country's highest mountain. a number of people have died in lithuania poland and france as a result of the cold and also brought a rare snowstorm to the italian capital rome. the coliseum covered in snow. writing sledge

7:30 am
you cannot predict of course to create interactive content teaching the next generation about environmental protection. using all channels available to inspire people to take action and when to turn and to build something here for the next generation. global it's the multimedia environment series on d. w. . welcome back your words interview news we're turning to yemen now and together with the civil war in syria the conflict in yemen has been described as one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of our era a saudi led coalition has been bombing targets in yemen controlled by rebel who these now millions of yemenis are now dependent on humanitarian aid in the united nations as warning a famine is in the making the security council's expected to hold a briefing for the latest on the situation today in
7:31 am
a moment we'll get some expert opinion but first we have this report detailing how yemen has come to the brink of starvation. the conflict in yemen dates back to a failed transition of power after the arab spring uprising in twenty eleven authoritarian presidents ali up to the saw that was forced to hand over power to his deputy but president up to rubble months or haiti struggled with various issues including al qaeda attacks food insecurity and high unemployment. who the rebels took advantage of this political situation and over several years gained control of various provinces in two thousand and fifteen who these and their allies seize control of the capital sanaa president haiti was forced to flee last month government forces faced another foe separatists captured large parts of the southern port city of aden they want to restore the independent state of southern yemen which existed until one nine hundred ninety the conflict reaches far beyond
7:32 am
yemen's borders it's become a fierce struggle for regional dominance between saudi arabia which backs the government and iran which backs the who the rebels as the battle for regional control grows so does the enormous toll on civilian lives that the u.n. calls it the world's worst manmade humanitarian disaster. and to talk more about this we're joined now from beirut by adam baron he's from the european council on foreign relations and has extensive experience in yemen adam thanks for joining us this morning. yemen has become as we saw there a proxy battleground for saudi arabia on one hand and iran on the other who's in the ascendancy right now who has the upper hand at the moment. i guess the short answer is is neither really i think when you look at saudi iranian or even interest in yemen it's important to remember that they're coming coming at it from a different set of sentences different set of needs the iranian the out there who
7:33 am
does roll out well with your any and certainly had losses but for iran to have any presence in yemen which is something that is historically interesting is still a sign of success for the iranians at the same time the saudis have certainly on the set back here excuse me unleashed. holds a number of defeats for the truth is. but for the saudis having an earring improve on their border in the sense that who it is. is is a threat to them that's i mean when you compare iran and saudi and yemen for iran to get it very far away or south i think literally their backyard ok but is it a military stalemate right now. or in many regards it is you've had a little you know you're looking at a word attrition so you're seeing. losses for the who these here and there are just simply due to the fact that saudi but coalition does have superior firepower but i think you haven't seen much of the rapid gains that people have been expecting for
7:34 am
some time and particularly we're expecting at the start of this war which was initially thought to be something that would only last night or weeks but a lot of months ok you're probably referring to saudi arabia they're expecting some initial or quick gains and we're we're just getting these reports today that saudi arabia has fired a number of its top military officers in a major shake up how might this affect the war in yemen. i think it remains to be seen from what i've been reporting that this shake up is related to the yemen war is is inaccurate and in a lot of ways about larger professionalization of the saudi military so in a way that could potentially lead to having a in effect in saudi military efforts and in yemen although from from my understanding the saudi military shake up is about sort of a far larger issue than yemen itself but something far more general ok now now with yemen on the brink of starvation is there anything to be done and what can be done
7:35 am
to bring peace or at least a level of peace so that humanitarian aid get through to the civilians who need it . i mean what i think you need to have is international pressure to guarantee access to keep works and to guarantee humanitarian access inside the country and that's something that will require pressure on all sides this isn't a matter of one side or the other holding up humanitarian access you have the bulk of yemen's warring factions or are guilty of this and the fact of the matter is that is that unless you see international pressure and gestures towards accountability you're going to continue to see paris factions in yemen put civilians last unfortunately out of bear and from the european council on foreign relations joining us this morning from beirut thanks very much if you. we've been hearing the fighting in yemen is raising the prospect of famine there millions of yemenis are dependent right now on food aid many of them children our
7:36 am
next report looks at the situation in a rebel held region of yemen as one doctor tries to ease the plight of the children there warning to our viewers that this report does contain some disturbing images. it's the start of a long and busy day for pediatrician a shrug know how to today she'll be making house calls in the countryside. but first a father is waiting anxiously at the central clinic in what data with his emaciated daughter a shrug zaki patient requires her to remain optimistic but she's frustrated during the three years of fighting the number of undernourished children has risen dramatically for her the suffering is unbearable especially when the children are brought to the hospital when it might already be too late. crime idea don't cry don't be afraid. doctors hope to save the child's life with an infusion of liquid nutrition when asked what her name is the six year old
7:37 am
cannot answer she is too weak to talk. her father says her name is the goal doesn't utter a single word during the examination. will try to help but the effectiveness of her work depends entirely on adequate deliveries of medicine actually reaching yemen that's what drives to the harbor area of data to find out what kind of relief aid has been delivered this time but when she arrives she can hardly believe her eyes the united nations sent this ship. asks the harbor workers if they know why such a small ship was sent but they say they don't know the reason. why the cafe the planet is not enough unicef's and that ship we need unicef for medications for food to combat the malnutrition among children cholera dysentery can unicef only
7:38 am
lease ships this small it was not supposed to be enough for twenty seven million people. a day does harbor is the largest and therefore the most important port in the hoop the rebel held area it's under constant attack by the saudi led coalition but our shrug says the bombardments of civilian homes nearby is a worse crime than. began having in this district this close to military base says the airport is nearby that's why it is continually bombed including the university's medical faculty. and. a shrug drives to a village south of hood a down the war is also hitting people in the countryside hard the few deliveries that do arrive really make it out of the city that's why the doctor makes these trips. the town of adam is near the coast fisherman who lives here are very
7:39 am
poor i shrug my heart around is able to help them because of her relatively good income when she arrives she can see how rightful the people are she's almost their only contacts to the outside world the war's effects are highly visible here the children are terribly undernourished. one of the. four i could give my child milk every two days but i haven't gotten anything for two months now. yes there the parents are grateful to us work for treating the children for free and give her a gift of hima it's a small gesture that allows these poor people to maintain their dignity. and has made it her mission to help people but this is becoming increasingly difficult she sees no end to the war and has made a professional decision. ahead of the children is deteriorating because they are
7:40 am
not getting adequate treatment and i've decided that if we can't provide food supplies to adults we have to at least guarantee the children that because they need nourishment more urgently. that's why she's come to this village bringing only powdered milk ashwell believes it's the children who must survive because they are humans only hope. it's to italy now that country sees a general election this weekend then all this week the w. is in italy looking at the state of the race one main concern for young voters is economic opportunity italy is doing better after years of deep economic crisis but is better good enough today we follow our correspondent lisa lois to naples he met with young people there to see if italy offers the kind of future they're hoping for. my. alba and i have always dreamed of working as midwives in
7:41 am
one of italy's hospitals but they have been struggling to find a job in their home country they are now learning german to search for a better life abroad. you know new people have been recruited in our hospitals for years there is no money because of the economic crisis and because the politicians don't do anything about it then no opportunities for young people here second are she worth the few available jobs don't go to the best qualified but to those we know the right person your own efforts aren't enough to get ahead in this country. and i know one. they feel left behind by their politicians the upcoming parliamentary elections are unlikely to change that. on the on the politicians don't do what they say anyway they make me feel sick at a certain point you just stop believing them and your numbers and i don't fear are presented by our politicians they have been a lot of proposals made during the election campaign but i don't think things will get better i need it albert milan year i'm no exception many young people are
7:42 am
having a hard time finding work despite the economic recovery economists say more and more of them are leaving especially in the south where the mafia needs the. free to. law number of enterprises in the south but it is why people over law probability to find the job another course of it is the proposition that is inefficient so they don't create the jobs the karen left wing government has tried to turn this around it's made firing easier thinking that then more young would be hired but so far that doesn't seem to have worked one in three young italians is still out of the job here in the south it's even one into. the local. left wing mayor says only the left can get a grip on the job crisis and that the government should finally stop trying to
7:43 am
liberalize the market to follow but it can be left wing politics could change things they would be less inequality in your social justice if you would put the focus on the human being that week the young and the working class on a national level policies like these have been lacking for many. but the left is facing stiff opposition former prime minister silvio berlusconi's forte tahlia has teamed up with two far right parties there making the migrants the scapegoats for the current job crisis. doesn't call them foreign doctors are stealing our own dog jobs the future of our maritime transport sector hangs in the balance and the government needs to intervene or that's the only way to save are you. really going to be going to. them and then these arguments are unlikely to convince you to say even if it will be difficult for them to leave you know. i mean i do hope that i
7:44 am
will be able to return home one day because i think i will suffer when i go away and you know i think we first need to hit drug bottom before things will change hopefully in the not too distant future but i don't think i'll return to italy once i have settled in germany if you get there i would want to stay both have now found a job in the other western city of to sort of they start in june they're hoping to find there the bright future that their own country couldn't give them. for more on italy as it prepares to vote we're joined now by rome correspondent philip philip as we saw there in our report young italian disaffected with the political system how are they likely to vote we're looking at youth unemployment of about thirty three percent will they gravitate to the four aright. yes i think there's certainly some of them will the argument that immigrants or the european
7:45 am
