10:00 am
and we're determined to build something here for the next generation along. the environment series of three thousand on t.w. . this is the governor's live from berlin it is official imran khan has won pakistan's general election he's promising a new pakistan but first the former cricket star will have to seek out allies to form a coalition government and. also coming out the pills that protects against a child as infection rates around the world continue to rise we meet one man who says perhaps has freed him from the fear of catching the virus. and will you be one
10:01 am
of the lucky ones to catch sight of the day the longest total lunar eclipse of the twenty first century begins tonight and it will feature a bloodmoon find out what's behind the spectacular astronomical. i'm seeing so much going to good to have you with us in pakistan the official results are in and they show that former cricket star imran khan has won the country's election his party will take one hundred nine seats in the national assembly compared to just sixty three one by its nearest rival khan is still short of an outright majority though so he'll have to seek out allies to form a coalition government that process is likely to take several days. jubilation in islamabad supporters of a monk khan's p.t.i.
10:02 am
party took to the streets to celebrate what they deemed to be a change in direction for pakistan as promised by the ellida. pakistan like it's never been run before but we will give it the government it has never had before. and we will start with ourselves we will be transparent and clean or sod. his supporters may be celebrating tonight but without an outright majority in one can still has potentially tough coalition talks in front of him and pakistan may still have to wait a while for its new government. a scenario that may prove difficult with the p.p.p. party of below all but chose adare and the pm l. led by the brother of disgraced former prime minister now as sharif claiming it wasn't a fair vote. this is blatant rigging results based on rigging
10:03 am
belief do irrepairable loss we do not accept it we reject it. but it's every day issues that concern many ordinary pakistanis. main issue is very educational system and if a positive change can be made here i am very confident a change will come to pakistan. and iran can has promised a lot to the people of the huge number of votes that people give them is because you can do what others feel to do for them he should deliver on his promises and he should do a lot for the masses he should deliver now or else his situation will be worse than that. a warning that for now at least is drowned out in the euphoria of victory. conrad is covering the elections for us in islamabad i spoke to her earlier and asked her to bring us up to date the big question is what happens today we've got
10:04 am
two very important events coming up one is the press conference later on in the day of the e.u. electoral observer mission so whether they indeed call these elections for your fair will have a big impact on what the opposition parties decide to do another thing is a meeting of all the parties except for the p.t. when they discuss what strategy to take as as one of the high ranking members told me yesterday all options are on the table meaning they might be able to move supporters depending on what they do so a very tense day and it remains to be seen what happens later on in the day what about for iran cargo he's promised to tackle issues that are important to the voters but he is the candidate who is a favorite by the military in this field so how much freedom will we have to do so with the military influence in politics. over two things but elected politicians can't touch that foreign policy and defense policy but that's always been the case in the history of pakistan the one issue that he's was really
10:05 am
central in his campaign which was corruption fighting corruption is very much aligned to what the military wants to see the military says there's too much corruption the country they want that stands out so easily. mind that the other the other big issues like poverty alleviation like the electricity crisis i think you will have a pretty fair and free hands to tackle those issues what do you think are the biggest challenges that he faces as he seeks to take over the reins. well they're huge there's a myriad of domestic challenges including security the economy poverty alleviation but there's also the question of foreign policy the question is will pakistan and the u.s. improve their toys which were broken early zero early on in the year when the u.s. suspended aids because of it because it said pakistan continued to support militants in the country and outside of the country there's also the question of pakistan's role with india with afghanistan and of course the question of how much closer ties with china become so
10:06 am
a lot of domestic and international challenges that the future probably future prime minister cameron khan will have to deal with now we just briefly for cameron kind is also been criticized for making friends with islamic extremists in pakistan what role the business they play in this election. well actually they didn't do well at all there was a fear that very hard core islamists might do very well in these elections they fielded a lot of candidates but to a lot of people's relief they didn't do well at all. reporting for us from islamabad thank you very much. now to some other stories making news around the world greek authorities have said a deadly wildfire in a coastal resort near athens was started deliberately the minister of public order said there were serious indications of criminal activity concerning arson at least eighty two people were killed in the fire rescuers are still searching for more bodies as residents blame the government for the high death toll saying it lacked
10:07 am
ineffective disaster plan. cambodia's prime minister hun sen has hailed a success in women aiding what he called traitors ahead of this weekend's the general election. with a rally in phnom penh on the final day of campaigning the election promises to be an easy victory four hundred thousand after the supreme court dissolved the soul serious opposition party in november. and in poland thousands of protesters took to the streets to rally against a new law that gives the government greater powers over countries judiciary the law affectively allows the ruling piece party to take control of the country's supreme court protesters claim this violates judicial independence polish president signed the measure into law on thursday. north korea has handed over the remains of american soldiers killed in the korean war which raged from one nine hundred fifty to nine hundred fifty three a u.s. aircraft brought the remains to an air base in south korea the handover which coincides with the sixty fifth anniversary of the wars and follows an agreement
10:08 am
reached by north korean leader kim jong un and us president donald trump at their singapore summit in june. let's get more of this story with reuters correspondent josh smith who joins us from south korea's capital seoul where he's covering this story hi josh so sixty five years after the end of the korean war these remains are now being returned to the u.s. so is this then a direct result of the summit in singapore between u.s. president trump and kim jong un. it is to return a u.s. soldier means was one of four kind of specific bullet points that the two leaders agreed on and of those blue points is perhaps the most specific and so it's something that the white house definitely was hoping to show some progress on and it's something that north korea is able to do while not touching perhaps some of the more sensitive issues like this nuclear weapons program and so secure area that those charged with looking to make progress on to show that they are trying to work together and president trump is hailed this move as
10:09 am
a great moment how significant is this. definitely helps him fend off something of a narrative that's been emerging of a lack of progress in the wake of that june summit as you mentioned this is quite an accomplishment something that comes after years of deadlock the last time something like this really happened was back in the one nine hundred ninety s. early two thousand and it's something that the obama administration tried to get going again in two thousand and eleven in two thousand and twelve and that fell apart before it even started over disagreements with the north koreans and so this is definitely something that trump has been. praising and we can definitely look forward to him citing this as an accomplishment in the future and josh i think we're going to see further repatriation. that is something that the american certainly want the north koreans are believed to have at least another hundred
10:10 am
fifty or so sets of remains that they believe may be american troops that they could potentially hand over the united states is also interested in perhaps starting joint missions in which american investigators would actually go to north korea and find more soldiers who were left behind there reuters correspondent speaking to us from seoul thank you very much. thank you. now a major international conference on hiv and aids is wrapping up in the netherlands experts agree the fight against the epidemic isn't over last year around one point eight million people were newly infected by the virus and rates of hiv infection are rising in around fifty countries health officials have long stressed the use of condoms to prevent hiv infection now there's a new medication known as prep that can significantly reduce people's chances of catching a hiv. emanuel is
10:11 am
a professional musician and he's hiv negative to keep it that way he relies on prep a medicine that can stop people catching it so he has to take the day to stay for texted. for sort of not till about two years ago i just use condoms. is always risky situations for calling i started to mistrust condoms than i had about prep and it really sounded like a savior. but this is. i know that's wrong. until recently the medicine cost as much as eight hundred euros per month in germany alternatively it could be ordered some illegally as a generic struck a broad recently the price of the medicine fell to fifty cures the reason the manufacturers payton will soon expire demand is high. as had so few going on prep it took my constant fear away nor not only in the bedroom but in
10:12 am
everyday life it helped me get emotionally intimate again. before a song every potential partner was also a potential danger and still a good fall the combination of improved hiv therapy and prep has already produced positive results say supporters of the new treatment. isn't yet under the lens and we are now certain that prep can definitely stop new infections in the u.k. the new infections have dropped significantly and we can see the same thing in san francisco we can have new successes in germany as well i know we can do it. but the before pill also has its disadvantages doctors say especially if it leads to a decline in the use of condoms to prep. for the high front the prep protects against hiv but it doesn't protect against syphilis are going to rear or other sexually transmitted diseases. of use the most difficult to treat and the most severe of
10:13 am
these sexually transmitted diseases that's what prep protects against the pap for emmanuelle means freedom freedom from the once life threatening disease called hiv aids. every summer thousands of young russians attend summer camps of a different kind as well as sitting around campfires and sleeping in tents they learn to fire guns and simulate clearing a building of terrorists the so-called patriotic summer camps are growing in popularity. sure when reports. of a summer holiday playing war these kalashnikovs machine guns may not be loaded with real bullets but it was a bit but camp the boys are learning how to handle them. the kids here are aged between ten and sixteen. like the one i know.
10:14 am
little it's nikita's first time in the military summer counter the fifteen year old is from nearby moscow like many of the boys he wants to try out life as a soldier here to decide if it's for him. you don't feel like a normal russian citizen here you feel like a soldier maybe even in another country and on a secret mission it's totally different from normal life so she and the teacher at the mission. today the boys are swinging into action to clear a building of terrorists. the instructors say these are current real life scenarios from the russian army's operations. but the instructors in the camp of the military background several are even actively serving soldiers though the program is open to girls the camp counselors see it as a male rite of passage. to me i would make them sleep with their weapons each with their weapons a man should always have
10:15 am
a weapon with him it's his job to protect the weak and to protect women if it doesn't have a weapon he's not even a man anymore. but it is a private camp and receives no government funding but the idea matches the mood in russia a recent government survey shows that over ninety percent of people in russia feel patriotic. so far military summer camps are the exception rather than the rule in russia but a recent law promoting education in the country praises the camps it says they're a good way of instilling patriotism in young people. and those governments in the book we need a strong generation we should all know how to protect the country and bring up decent kids. if you like we missed out on bringing up a whole generation in the ninety's after the fall of the soviet union was the only compensating for vets and that's why the government is also putting an emphasis on
10:16 am
these military patriotic carols that's. right around the particularly to. the battalion gathers to review the day before bed the organizers insist the camp is about teamwork and not about patriotism or preparing a new generation to fight for russia patriotism is important to me as the law for your home country when she had the camp it also plays a role if you have that feeling already it develops here it's impossible not to be patriotic here. nikita is still deciding whether the army is for him in the long run but for some of the boys this camp has clearly kindled a flame that will be hard to put out. for a temper some sports news now and a competitive year and european football is already back under way less than two weeks after the world cup final rb leipzig made light work of swedish club heck in

10:19 am
moon has no direct light from the sun will last for one hour forty two minutes and fifty seven seconds that's when the moon will look at a blood moon and let's take a look at our map where you can see when the eclipse will be visible in which part of the world and whether it will be seen as a partial or a total lunar eclipse and of course when you can see the blood moon but why exactly are we treated to the spectacle that can best be explained from the moon's perspective. i am. your satellite your moon i circle you in an internal dance but i try to surprise you from time to time with an eclipse. an eclipse is when your planet moves between me and the sun blocking the direct light that otherwise makes me surfer it only happens when i'm full every twenty nine and a half days doesn't happen every time because a barbecue in
10:20 am
a slightly slanted path. when the sun the earth and i are lined up i get two different shadows from the earth. we call the larger the penumbra it's the less intense the smaller one is starker into the human brain i don't always travel through both but when i do you see me in a total lunar eclipse that's when i'm even more amazing than usual i read. how it's your atmosphere splitting the sunlight heading my way into color. short blue light waves are scattered bold words longer red light waves and bent in words and are the only ones to reach me turning the red. lunar eclipse is not so rare but on the twenty seventh of july it will be the longest of the twenty first century. beautiful come take a look. at an incredible spectacle awaiting us that ironic
10:21 am
twenty two minutes past ten european central european time exactly that's exactly where you can see that blood moon here in berlin and laid back some earthly matters how much time is ticking for a break that and the concerns are only growing are there only growing and i'll tell you sumi a poll now for the times newspaper shows that a majority in britain favor a second referendum on breaks it and this as the european union steve bracks that negotiator has cast a doubt on british hope. for a deal to leave the block by an october deadline michel barnier said the e.u. would never allow a nonmember to collect customs duties on its behalf britain had proposed doing so as a way to prevent a hard border in ireland but bad news said that could threaten the use customs union and other key policies britain is set to leave the bloc next march so a deal needs to be in place by october to give national parliaments enough time to
10:22 am
ratify. all this problem or critics certainly of the recent white paper saw this coming miles of let's cross over to our man at the private stock exchange daniel corbett dunya what exactly does the new not like about the united kingdom special customs proposal. quite a lot of things let me tell you that and also for many traders here brics that still remains a big mystery how all of this is going to unfold and yes the white paper proposal by the united kingdom does not seem to be an option which is most likely cool deal now going to lead to even for another delay for the negotiations well the u.k. wants a sort of a single market just for goods but that's not acceptable for the european union they want a deal that includes free trade for goods services and also asset and for the e.u. it's crucial their citizens from the u.k. and the e.u. can decide where they want to live for also where they want to work may seems to be only in favor of free trade for goods and that's simply not enough for the european
10:23 am
union ok and then of course there's a there's another story that happened late last night danielle but it was still somewhat shaken by it i'm going to talk with you about it in just a moment because a new record for facebook it suffered the biggest ever one day loss in dollar value for a u.s. company the social media giant shared a staggering one hundred twenty billion dollars in market value investors were disappointed by weaker than expected growth partly due to the effect of data privacy. scandals facebook's costs are also rising as it focuses on tightening security and improving content. daniel massive losses how is facebook going to recover from this. massive loss and what is really significant is the loss of value before the draw of facebook at a value of two hundred twenty billion u.s. dollars now only one hundred and seventy five billion u.s. dollars that's a lot mark zuckerberg is going to wake up later today and he will personally have
10:24 am
lost fifteen billion u.s. dollars i guess we still don't need to worry about him and also know in general about facebook is still one of the most valuable tech companies in the world but what is happening right now is of course a shock but mark zuckerberg was a warning for months with his new strategy of privacy first they won't be able to deliver the profit that wall street desperately wants them to deliver so that's the revenue side and the other side is that facebook seems not anymore be that cool their numbers are declining also here in europe also the amount of minutes that people spend on the platform is going down now their focus is going to be on their other platforms such as instagram for example they also belong to the facebook group is considered by many young people as a very cool so yeah their focus is going to be very much now on instagram and also what's there you know right well at least to have some sort of backup there too to handle with this problem right now hope in france thank you so much. and you
