help asylum seekers who are not entitled to protection and hungry now would change the constitution was also approved outloud outlaw outlawing rather selling foreign populations in the country so robert we're seeing a hardening stance in europe over migration how tough is it going to be for the chancellor to find a european solution. well first we have to differ between the european solution and the solution until america right now is seeking for the european solution the german chancellor has spoken often the last three years actually meant how all the european countries are going to treat the refugees which are already in europe and how how many kind of countries are going to take the burden so right now that the problem is that many const like spain or like italy or even or even germany have taken most of the refugee burden in other countries especially in the in eastern
3:06 pm
europe said no we don't want to don't want to have a new refugees at all in our country like hungry as we have seen and so there was no possibility to find any quotas on how many people should go into rich country the solution seeking for right now is in the end national solution but not against the other countries what she wants to find is she wants to have the possibility to sund people back to other european countries where they have been registered as a side them see because it wants to give them back to italy for instance also three zero or spain but these countries have to say that yes to that and that's the whole idea of what is going to help them at the weekend all right rupert our political correspondent thank you for your analysis you know what now the turkish government has refused to refused to allow a member of the german parliament to enter the country as an observer for this weekend's election andre home go one member of the german left party intended to

travel to turkey to represent the organization for security and cooperation in europe who go it previously condemned last year's constitutional referendum in turkey as unfair the turkish government has accused them of sympathizing with the outlawed p k k party. all it took was his signature u.s. president donald trump insisted he was powerless to stop the separation of immigrant families at the country's southern border but he has now issued an executive order to reverse course trump's move means families entering the u.s. illegally will now be detained together it is a rare policy retreat for the u.s. president following days of public outrage. you could have a lot of happy people it was that easy president effectively reversing a policy that has separated children from their parents but the executive order does nothing to reunite more than two thousand children who have already been taken away families who illegally cross the border will now be detained together while
3:08 pm
their cases are considered but trumps order click for changing a court ruling that limits the detention of immigrant children to twenty eight days critics now say trump is replacing separations with indefinite family detention. as the numbers of detained children grew in recent weeks so did the waves of opposition polls showed the majority of americans opposed the separations protests took place in dozens of cities across america and in congress. let's go back to a time a steady and decency in america when children will respect it love the children mr president be a dad for once it's been going on for so as the blowback intensified including from members of trump's own republican party trump relented signing an executive order to do what his administration had been saying for weeks couldn't were so are they
3:09 pm
an executive order. i consider to be a very important executive order it's about keeping families together. while at the same time very sure that we have a very powerful very strong border of border security will be. equal if there are greater than previously. as trump zero tolerance policy at the border continues immigrant families that have been torn apart may face a long wait be reunited. now to some other stories making news around the world an air asia pilot has come under fire after he tried to force passengers to disempower using the jets air conditioning system passengers of the flight from kolkata to bug were told to deplane after a delay when they refused because of heavy rain the pilot cranked up the ac sending clouds of cold air into the capitol. and israeli court has indicted the wife of

3:11 pm
there's a likeness to everything in sochi which is just what the squad need after a difficult week. that's the crux of it you just can't train lightness i've never had a training session where you're taught lightness that's something you only get when everything works and you're well prepared to take on your opponent. that likeness has been missing from the germany squad for months now the lead players in particular have been criticised for a series of poor displays. loyalty to certain players is under scrutiny the ones bullet proof squad harmony appears fragile. critical enough to analyze the situation internally the most important thing is to come together to focus on the future we need to win both games the pressure is extremely high but we won't win either if we start tearing into one another.
3:12 pm
and the german players have one more day in sochi before facing sweden there their tactics as well as mentality need an overhaul for example the team will need to use possession better than they did against mexico. then i think of the sweden game i'm expecting a strong defensive unit that means in certain situations that we'll have to get the ball forward quickly before the opposition has time to set themselves up. but if we're too impatient and lose the ball we could be hit on the break. can germany regained their likeness in sochi. they're certainly hoping it will be a springboard to success at this world cup. now roll out your mat and hold that post because today marks the fourth international yoga day from ireland to bahrain australia to italy gatherings are planned to celebrate the spiritual and physical practice but nowhere are the festivities as numerous or impressive as in india in particular
