11:03 am
a cease fire. people came out of the shell to try and find a family or check on the houses and. there are very short time later the building starts up again and more people were killed at the moment people are still very very scared very afraid. every concert. and so until it's clear that the cease fire is holding exactly what your colleagues telling you what is their assessment about whether this five hour a day ceasefire is enough we're told and how much help civilians at least in hotel . it's definitely not enough even if it holds which is still unclear and the un security council was very clear a few days ago that there needs to be an immediate thirty day truce accompli society and the hostilities on humanitarian access five hours a day is just a. relief from the bombing it still means that for nineteen hours a day children and their families are going to be hiding underground trains were

aboard the bombing made agencies local aid agencies in eastern goods are trying to do distribution and trying to provide people with food and so on the. often come under attack in the past week say a five hour window i mean it's really just not good enough given the massive scale of needs in the area that hearing about the ports that what russia is saying that in fact the rebels at carrying out bombings and affecting the humanitarian corridor which would allow civilians to leave. well as i said we can verify what's going to happen today at the moment it's the same but from talking to families in. most of the very very reluctant to leave there are more than three hundred fifty thousand civilians in the area. it's unclear where they'll go it's people don't want to leave their homes and their families behind especially not
11:05 am
when the when there is such a short window what people want and what was agreed of the security council is that age should be allowed in and people should be able to get through to medicine that's been denied to them for many many months now so i don't know donna from save the children thank you very much for talking to. let me bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the wild prosecutors in south korea demanding a thirty year jail for prison. in a landmark corruption case the ex-president was impeached for corruption last march and is facing more than a dozen criminal charges bach has been held in custody for. the frontrunner in colombia's upcoming presidential elections gustavo petro has alleged voting is at risk of massive fraud games the decision not to digitalize the results

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 cannot answer she is too weak to talk. her father says her name is i shot the girl doesn't utter a single word during the examination ash work will try to help her but the effectiveness of her work depends entirely on adequate deliveries of medicine actually reaching yemen shrug drives to the harbor area of the 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. a swag asks the harbor workers if i know why such
11:09 am
a small ship was sent but they say they don't know the reason. that caviar yanni that benefit 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 least ships this small if you want is 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 hoof the rebel held area it's under constant attack by the saudi led coalition but i shrug says the bombardments of civilian homes nearby is a worse crime than. this district is close to a military base says the airport is nearby that's why it is continually bombed including the university's medical faculty. at the end of the ash walk drives to a village south of hard data the war is also hitting people in the countryside hard
11:10 am
the few aid deliveries that do arrive really make it out of the city that's why the doctor makes these trips. the town of adam now is near the coast the fisherman who live here are very poor ash walk 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 room and. i'm sure i could give my child milk every two days but i haven't gotten anything for two months now. the parents are grateful to us work for treating the children for free and give her a gift of him it's a small gesture that allows these poor people to maintain their dignity. and has
11:11 am
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 not getting adequate treatment and i've decided that if we can't provide food supplies for adults we have to at least their n.t. the children that because they need nourishment more urgently. that's why she's come to this village bringing only powdered milk. and believes it's the children who must survive because they are humans only hope. the hapless receiver usually from the un to aid organizations journalists really get access into yemen journalists all over adama did manage to get into the country recently he joins me now from our studios in bonn a welcome all of a resource a heartbreaking pictures from yemen in the report is the situation the as bad or
11:12 am
even worse. yeah you have to care for that i've been to the south only the pictures you've seen have been from the north and the north is by far more hit by the war but coming back to the south where i've been there last month the situation was very homogeneous i was expecting a blank in pure poverty but i've only seen of it but i've also seen pictures of wealth i've seen for markets full of fruits vegetables meat and so on i've been to restaurants full of people having been to an entertainment center where children were riding on roller coasters that was the one side wealthy side but i've also seen lots of poverty expression if you leave aiden center you go to the districts and there you have a lot of camps of displaced people coming from the north from the rebels and they are very much dependent on food supply and that also is creating
11:13 am
a lot of anger between the people you have a refugee camp on the one side and next to it is a village where the people live and they don't get any food supply and the people there tell me why do they get some something to eat and why don't we get something with why don't we get any help so the conflict is. even creating within the people a lot of conflict as well so that is really the shaming part of it so i don't know why and food supplies getting in the u.n. is warning that lots of yemen on the brink of a famine and we saw the doctor in our report complain there is not enough aid coming in from the u.n. . it's very difficult to get something into the country expression in the north because in the north we have the blockade in the south it's a little bit easier but still if you want to deliver something a container to aid in for example it has to go to a lot of clearances and so on it's very complicated to bring in things me as an
11:14 am
example if it took me months almost a year to get into the country i had to fill out so many forms and so it's really very bureaucracy and a lot of mistrust going on so that leads to conflicts that leads to problems to get things into the country and at the end of the people are suffering because they do not receive their medicine for example and despite the intense suffering in parts of the gun to this conflict has been more or less ignored by the international community but now the united nations is set to discuss yemen today and the security council what are yemenis hoping and expecting from this meeting. i would say after my experience that the people are very hopeless and they don't believe anymore in conferences in meetings and so on but the only opportunity the united nations have is bringing all conflict members on the same table but this happened before it was tried before and it never succeeded and so i would say from
11:15 am
out of my experience in yemen the people are completely helpless and they're just thinking about themselves how to survive how do we get along for the next day so it's really difficult to say what's united nations security council and so on should do. one of the drama of genesis this return from yemen thank you very much for your insights. crist of joins me now on a top court in germany said to decide with a heavily polluting diesel cars should be banned a highly anticipated decision on radio germany's top administrative court is set to announce the ruling in the coming hours a move that activists say is long overdue the expect the decision comes amid attempts to cut down on pollution levels dozens of german cities have a mission levels that exceed e.u. limits and germany is under pressure to bring them into compliance with e.u. law these are all bans could prove problematic for german carmakers as market
11:16 am
shares of diesel cars have grown rapidly in recent years up until almost fifty percent in the year of twenty sixteen. let's get the market view on this issue with our correspondent daniel kolbe in frankfurt daniel shares of car makers are up this morning ahead of the ruling are investors not concerned about the impact of such a possible ban on carmakers and their subcontractors. yes sometimes the market is very difficult to understand because of your right shares of b.m.w. and diamond all up which weena zero point three and a half per cent i don't know if this is optimism because investors really don't know what to expect what to expect from this verdict now happening in about forty five minutes from now but even though sales numbers of these are cars have been dropping they're still very important for the entire industry also if the court in life is now really going to say that these are bans would be possible in the cities
11:17 am
of. many other cities most likely to follow and carmakers are worried but also small businesses i was just hearing a report about a small bakery outside of stuttgart they just board five new diesel cars in order to bring their bread inside of the city now with a possible ban they would have to invest thousands of euros in order to keep their business still running this ongoing discussion about emissions do investors see car makers on track when it comes to finding alternatives to diesel or gasoline powered cars. yeah well pretty much not at all remember that i'm going to america the german chancellor said by a twenty twenty she would like to have one million mobility cars on the german roads that's certainly not going to happen the problem is that the entire industry has been very slow to produce cars being attractive from the prize also being attractive from the range they can actually drive so there is still
11:18 am
a lot of more whole work that needs to be done in order to create a similar hype that we have seen for example happening with tesla in the united states and your corp reporting from frankfurt thank you. now in a surprise move us cable giant comcast has thrown down the gauntlet to tycoon rupert murdoch says it's a bidding him offering more than twenty five billion euros to. by european pay t.v. group sky murdoch had already agreed to buy the sixty one percent of sky he doesn't already own but british regulators fear his company twenty first century fox could become too powerful comcast says fox would be a perfect fit and it's now reportedly teamed up with disney which has its eyes on some fox assets this comes only two months after business said it aims to buy fox by itself. now making our already very smart phones even smarter is something that is harder and harder to do that's why many say the real innovation of this year's
