in going to sleep a soccer a battle for first division survival as cologne take on mines in a fight to get away from the relegation zone. the owner of. the as. a mitchell henry thanks for joining us former catalonian president carlos pushed him on says he plans to live in berlin while the courts consider a spanish extradition request against him he was speaking at a news conference here in the german capital a day after being freed on bail from a prison in northern germany a state court there were a few sent him back to spain to face charges of rebellion but the court may agree to extradite him on the lesser charge of misuse of funds. detailed reporter charlotte chosin pill was at the press conference in berlin. and joins us
now in the studio charlotte welcome you were there can you tell us what the press conference was like i was yes it is a very modest venue where the press conference was held it was a community center in an area but and it's a very suburban it's a rather strange stage for the latest twist in this very dramatic catalan independence movement custer's rome was in relatively good spirits i he made very clear that what he planned to do was to remain in gemini over the course of the legal proceedings that he faces here in germany that of course is legally required what he did say though is that he will stay in by then for the foreseeable future and then once the legal proceedings are either should he not be extradited back to spain he will then return to belgium where he's been in exile since late last year he said that he plans to he will respect the german she dishes process he also once again called for dialogue with madrid and emphasize the digits in the sea of his
independence movement and said he will continue to fight for that while he remains in exile and let's have a quick listen to what he had to say. yeah you didn't give very many specifics about what exactly his plans all for the coming days weeks as he says it was a surprise to him that he was that he was detained when he was traveling through germany what we do know they what he did say is that there are no plans currently in the books for him to meet with german politicians i think one thing that's very
clear though is that this is not the last big media event that we're going to see from and while he's there about it and do we have any feeling of what his legal standing is right now or pressure on isn't out of the woods yet we did hit that german courts have decided that he cons be extradited on the grounds of high treason on this is rather complicated essentially in madrid he's facing very serious charge of rebellion that carries up to that two years in prison. gemini it would have to have a very similar law or if it's going to extradite him on those grounds that they were looking into whether to extradite him for high treason in germany they need to be proof that he either was violent or incited violence in that process and it was decided that no that was something that cannot be proved so germany will not extradite him on the grounds of rebellion or or high treason what he is still facing is actually titian on the grounds of misuse of public funds with one of the lesser charges that he is facing in spain so we could indeed see him still return
back to face the courts in madrid but for now he said he's going to make berlin his base did he give any idea of what he plans to do while he is here in berlin is very unclear as i said at the moment but while he was in brussels i was that when he first arrived back in brussels he became somewhat of a celebrity that every time that he went for a haircut or went to the operator there was a bit of a media frenzy so i'm sure that he'll be taking the time to make the most of that essentially because in a way this is playing into his hands that means that he is still in the public eye and he can still use his platform to to argue on an international in front of the international media that his case is it just meant yes what will likely happen here again in berlin. thank you very much for joining us. to the us now where the state of texas has begun sending the national guard to secure the border with mexico it follows
a call by president donald trump to deploy up to four thousand members of the national guard to fight drug trafficking and illegal immigration in the region trump said he one of the deployment to last until progress has been made with his border wall. he can run but it's very difficult to hide from the u.s. border patrol regularly for these immigrants it's the end of the line and. they're among tens of thousands of people who try to cross the border between mexico and the u.s. illegally every month. president trump is started a new offensive to reduce the numbers it involves making sure that it tainted and sending troops to the border. we don't have laws we have catch and release you catch and then you immediately release and people come back years later for a court case except they virtually never come back so we are preparing for the military to secure a border. it's not the first time the u.s.
has deployed the military to the border but it comes as the number of illegal crossings has dropped dramatically from more than six hundred thousand apprehended in twenty sixteen to just three hundred fifty thousand in twenty seventeen mexico has condemned johns plans saying the decision is motivated by domestic political concerns that says. that ration is a huge frustration over issues to do with internal policy congress direct just off to them not to the mexican people. other critics also say trump is stepping up his rhetoric now because his plans to build a border wall have stalled in congress trump though says he's determined to stop all illegal immigration as it threatens both security and jobs. now to some of the other stories making news around the world the funeral has been held for a palestinian journalist killed while covering mass protests on the border between gaza and israel cameramen yassir are taught how was shot despite wearing

a monitoring group says dozens of civilians have died there since the truce collapsed on friday the pass was to allow the rebels to evacuate but most have refused to go. correspondent on channel four is monitoring events in ghouta from beirut in neighboring lebanon on shall tell us how significant this government bobbing has been well it's pretty but it is significant in the terms of how it behaves that way for victory in the neighborhood in damascus his neighborhood but there's a huge human cost attached to it according to the u.k. based wanted to see you're not sufficiently human rights so far forty people have been killed eight of them are children from the activists on the ground we getting a horrifying radios of families looking for help intense bombing happening the combat on the ground hours in dubai now is happening on the ground so it is
significant if you look at it militarily but it is also significant if you look at the human cost attached to it and you see that combat is continuing to happen on the ground and what's the situation on the ground now like for the civilians and the remaining rebels. well the civilians really are caught in the crossfire actually because a lot of them want to leave and the rebels are not letting them believe we're hearing this from people on the ground hearing this from people in damascus you heard it from our aid organizations that have been to do more like her the united nations and we were or we're also hearing it from. the monitor the u.k. based monitor so essentially they're caught in a crossfire a lot of people want to leave they don't want to die in the bombing they can't many others do not want to leave because they consider it forced displacement and they're sort of putting up a brave front remember in about sixty thousand to seventy thousand people according to the united nations many of these people are rebels rebels themselves or their
families or their supporters so they think that leaving is more dangerous than staying inside goma so for those rebels that believe that leaving is more dangerous than staying to they looked like they're going to stay until the bitter end when they certainly are displaying that they are removed that was reached between the rebels deshon islam which is the dominant group and tomorrow and bashar al assad's allies to russia seems has collapsed now so they have now started reading in the agreement now the problem here is that the rebels want to stay inside they don't want to surrender the regime is in a very strong position here but it only they want the rebels to surrender so essentially that's what we're seeing today and what we've seen yesterday in the regime is trying to get a message that you have to surrender if you do not then tomorrow would be bombed out so at the end the rebels perhaps would not be left with any choice but to leave
but i think what they're trying to really do is cordon to somebody and striving to do is damage the regime clergyman as much as they can. on shore and beirut thank you for the update. to sports now and then friday's bundesliga action relief for hanover as they finally end a five game losing streak against vertebrae men however broke the deadlock when martin harnick flicked the ball at the near post this or more had never made it to the fore half time thanks to fill the crowds. and it was this creative lot that started it all. hanover hold on for a two one and are now nine points clear of the locations. staying with the bundesliga and two struggling clubs face off in the fight to avoid
relegation cologne sit in seventeenth place but a win against mines today would bring them within three points of their rivals in sixteenth and cologne had better win if they want to hold on to their first division status but first they'll have to bounce back from a tough loss last weekend. with cologne you just never know when it's over leipzig in labor coups and then a loss of epic proportions six mill in hoffenheim they're not letting it set their confidence though much of the target was shown as a tame that we can suffer a setback like in frankie but we also fell apart and came back to get a result we're counting on being able to do it again. that's the bit we go to be helped by the return of z. montero to their top scorer a win against minds would put cologne within striking distance of the relegation play off place a minor miracle. up and down much that at one stage we had just three points off to
forte matches never now wildest dreams did we think we could get anywhere near the relegation play off place this early i'm not trying to put us down that's just a fact this is difficult. to wrongly awarded penalty gave away and over cologne earlier this season but the guests have just one win away all season. clear to take three points away from home but still nothing's done yet we still have six games to play. a good omen for the home side the billy goats clinched european football on the last day of the season last year with a win over months. i think you're watching detail the news from berlin more coming at the top of the hour and don't forget it all the latest news information around the clock on our website that's being dot com thanks for watching.
