10:04 am
us problems that's just how it is. spain is a country with high unemployment. there's just not enough jobs for so many people. other spaniards see things differently and tony volunteers for an aid organization and supports migrants like any way he can. he helps plant vegetables and takes care of the red tape and tony and sees the refugees as an economic factor the plantations in the region couldn't get by without them. thanks to these people many others are getting rich. the immigrants live off what little money they can earn so they're cheap labor. and they're not going to want a problem they have to put up with everything and never complain.

10:06 am
teams have rescued nearly twenty thousand people and now the weather is good nearly two hundred people arriving daily. and. the self is close to collapse according to police and social services officials the government has pledged more resources to deal with the influx but. the prime minister insist there is no migration crisis in the european union and the spain believes it can manage of course we develop of the european union there is public opinion on all of this does the government have a majority. backing it for its approach. well you know as we heard in the report. and it is true that for
10:07 am
example a new leader of the people's party by look at other people's bodies the main opposition party is already saying that if spain cannot host all the migrants that are arriving that we cannot keep papers to a million people so there is no doubt surging movement regarding people's attitudes to immigration but despite the society braces itself or been very tolerant and open minded but of course the big influx could soon if these dollar and is rather fragile and maybe we can just seen some. jews. especially society in the coming months if if influx is start getting really really serious. we will have to wait wait are many thanks very much for that jaime of alaska for us and. thanks very
10:08 am
much. to yemen our a spokesman for the saudi led coalition says thursday's airstrike that had a boss carrying children was quote a legitimate military action and it's not clear how many children exactly died in that attack but the international red cross has a hospital that supports the northern yemen receive the bodies of twenty nine children. this is yemen doctors desperately fighting for the lives of children the school bus hit by an aerial strike. well i would say that they were on their way to a school summer camp. well what about the devastation of the last showing just how powerful the strike was about that about what's the joke how the attack happened in the middle of the market and was aimed at the bus full of children. and our shops were open and people were going about their daily lives on that any of those who died were just locals kids and shop owners. who's responsible the saudi arabian led
10:09 am
coalition the coalition has been fighting the rebels on behalf of the yemeni government since two thousand and fifteen in a deadly proxy war the rebels are being backed by iran both saudi and iran of vying for power and influence not only in yemen but across the middle east this conflict has been unrelenting for civilians who are often caught in the middle even rights organizations say yemen has become the world's largest humanitarian crisis and peace is no way in sight that according to the united nations over ten thousand people have already died with over two million people displaced. last week the u.n. announced that new peace talks will be held between those involved in the conflicts these aren't likely to begin before september meanwhile the fighting continues. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making the news this morning emergency services have rescued about eight hundred people from a number of campsites in southern france after flash floods cause rivers to burst
10:10 am
their banks on his of children at a summer camp in the guard region among those evacuated one german man is missing at this hour. u.s. authorities say a fifty one year old man has been arrested on suspicion of setting a massive wildfire known as the holy fire in southern california as orange county forest clark faces a prison sentence of life in jail. if convicted will be formally charged later today this fires the place some twenty thousand people. moscow says it is considering retaliated against the new sanctions from washington state department announced the punitive measures in connection with the poisoning of the former double agent serger screwball and his daughter yulia britain the u.s. and britain say russia was responsible the kremlin denies any responsibility. and we're staying in russia to look at the case of the jailed ukrainian filmmaker and kremlin critic stan solve he's been on a hunger strike for three months in
10:11 am
a russian prison and is said to be gravely ill french president of money will crawl is said to discuss his case later today with russian president vladimir putin back in twenty fifteen cents off was sentenced to twenty years in a siberian penal colony on charges he planned terrorist attacks on the crimean peninsula you remember that russia annexed crimea in two thousand and fourteen cents off calls the charges against him and dozens of other ukrainian prisoners political social media post by sense also family lawyer quote the filmmakers saying the end is near let's get more now about all expense off and his imprisonment in russia from ukraine's capital kiev i'm joined by correspondent david stern and from moscow by yuri shadow good morning to both of you yuri if we could start with you what about sense of health there are conflicting reports that he could be close to death. well the last time all the x. insults lawyer. met him was on tuesday this week. says w.
10:12 am
russian service as insults it was in a good mood but he's a physical condition was a very bad. place near to the north pole here in russia wes unseld is currently in prison and it has been extremely hot brian fall to degrees celcius and that heat has been very bad for us and so it's condition in fact it has significantly worse and his condition has grown to a halt the disease has gotten worse and now he also has kidney and to live a problems he uses a mix of drugs just to maintain consciousness ok david what are you hearing in ukraine what a sense of family for example saying about his condition. well in ukraine we just recently the latest bit of news is that ukrainian human rights on those men has published photos she said she received from the russians showing a one but still standing sense of the standing in the in the photo now we can't
10:13 am
confirm the accuracy of these photos but obviously this gives some people hope that his condition may not be that bad on the other hand as we've heard from you and from yuri there is great fears that his that his condition is much worse that he could be very close to the end and of course in ukraine this cause a great deal of concern he is a symbol of the ongoing fight against russian backed separatists in the country's east as well as the annexation of crimea which ukraine and frankly the majority of countries in the world have not. recognized so there is a great deal of concern here about what the condition actually is ok david now since all serving in this twenty year sentence or what the kremlin says were arson attacks in crimea crimea a sense also has his imprisonment is politically motivated is he a political threat to the kremlin. well it's difficult to say i mean it's obvious
10:14 am
the kremlin views it that that way but the view here in kiev is no that he poses absolutely no threat he's a crimean who kept his ukrainian citizenship as i said he's been a very outspoken critic. of the annexation what he seems to be is one of many people who the kremlin feel is a threat a sense of a hunger strike is to release is to try to force you russians to release him and sixty four other people who he says and that ukrainians say have been jailed simply for objecting to russia's actions in ukraine. back to moscow there's been a lot of high profile file support for send solves calls french president as we've been reporting today will be talking with them celebrities like johnny depp steven king the writer will international pressure have any bearing in this case. well look for the crown when this in self case is absolutely clear he is the truth
10:15 am
and he has a serious criminal in russia president who too has repeatedly stressed in the past that he believed in the independence of russian courts and the rule of law in russia and as president he was unable to do anything if someone was guilty of a crime in russia there are a lot of petitions for pardon that are not conceived at all left without any decision less than the one percent of petitions are actually can see that the clemency commission bryan in the country is very bureaucratic and that means that they usually find a formal reason to refuse almost every plea of a pardon some experts believe that for vladimir putin this insults case is just a normal priority after the world cup as cynical as it sounds the most important thing was that that sense of didn't die during the world cup itself that would have been a p.r. disaster for putin nevertheless the fact that there is public solidarity with all
10:16 am
the acts in self all over the world is of course very important ok we might know more today after the talks of course about the fate of all of sense of your shadow in moscow thanks very much david stern in kiev thanks hughes well all staying in the region officials and beller us a journalist detained on suspicion of hacking the computer systems of the state run news agency will be free later today one of them is the w.'s correspondent paul you because. it's also searched homes on the premises of a privately owned online news service these arrests and searches are raising new questions about press freedom in belarus. yet another search this time at the independent bell a russian and russian language news organization t u t dot b. why it's accused of tapping into the feed based state run news agency without authorization. among those arrested as. a correspondent for deutsche of ela during
10:17 am
a raid of his flat police confiscated computers tablets telephones and memory sticks by cost he was working as a media analyst and had commented on recent searches of independent news organizations. his wife told he suspected of having unauthorized access to information. authorities say their investigation is still underway they say the state run news agency has been unlawfully accessed more than fifteen thousand times in the past two years. according to the owner of the t u t dot b.-y. website this could all be a pretext. but. it is clear that was our income we could surely afford to pay for a subscription to the news agency. but many questions remain unanswered namely why the arrests and how searches were carried out at all the organization for security and cooperation in europe has condemned the belorussian authorities actions as
10:18 am
excessive action is me and the previous bellerose has been under the authoritarian leadership of alexander lukashenko for twenty four years the opposition is severely restricted on a list of one hundred eighty countries reporters without borders puts belarus near the bottom in terms of press freedom at least one hundred journalists were arrested in the past year alone dozens were convicted if the six recently arrested reporters are found guilty they could face up to two years imprisonment. while here in berlin a new bike lane has made cycling more fun more more hazardous depending on how you look at it literally rather than a straight or gently curved line this one is all about curious and tight angles. berlin is on a quest to make the german capital more bike friendly that this new bike lane seems to have missed the many more.
10:19 am
i have never seen a bike lane like this. it's really difficult to stay in the leg but it's also part of. the new lane has left local residents in a bit of a spin. when i came here i couldn't believe how precisely the line had been painted. to tell us this is a joke but it looks totally absurd it's not really usable either for cyclists or pedestrians. apparently to bike lane is the result of a communication problem with the contractor who painted delaying dennys p.g. from the pro cycling group fox and shot found out fast bin laden has a lot to learn from other european cities why do you need it in cities that are just beginning to improve cycling like paris madrid or barcelona they're spending
10:20 am
a huge amount of money and redesigning their infrastructure that's yet to happen in berlin so berlin doesn't have a real other cities are going to overtake it with. according to a billings city council member does think that blinds will be repainted this time st. paul there's other travelers having a lot harder time today those aboard ryanair aircraft. that's right bryan on friday arrive as pilots across europe begin to coordinate a twenty frost strike germany will be worst hit by the industrial action with two hundred fifty five cancellations at ten outboards the i was no frills airline said it would be scrapping some four hundred hours of two thousand four hundred european flights scheduled for friday as pilots in germany belgium sweden and the netherlands walked off the job more than seventy thousand passengers would be
10:21 am
affected by the strikes he has offered customers refunds all the option of rerouting their journey. well let's see how this all works out in real life. as one of ryan as european bases loss what's the situation there right now. well the situation is pretty calm right now even though we had a little bit of a morning rush right now but people coming in checking in boarding their planes what we do not have here today is a ton of people looking desperately for their flights and being worried about their vacations because as you just pointed out ryan air has informed the passengers over the last couple of days if their flight was affected here by this strike so the situation here very much is ok for customers however it is obviously not ok for ryan at the espy got problems on the horizon i'm going to talk about that in a moment with you but let's first have a look at the report that we had low cost airlines are popular because people love
10:22 am
a bargain but since the cheap stuff is their success story some twenty years ago there's also been a flipside not only stuff but the cost of cheap travel very often passengers also have their flights delayed flights delayed or cancelled due to tired scheduling and a lack of flexibility in the airlines business model. these passengers have to trek across open tama to get to the airplane but they don't mind by flying a low cost carrier they can save money but often a flight with ryan air easy jet and others can cause worse inconveniences than that in many cases flights face delays or simply counseled almost every budget passenger knows the problems regardless of strikes consolations out on the raw is this year britain's easy jet comes with more than one thousand two hundred flights in june last year the figure was two hundred thirteen irish compared to ryan air cold of
10:23 am
one thousand one hundred flights this june compared to only forty one during the same period last year. airlines blame the weather or understaffed air traffic control but it's a fact that cramming as many flights as possible into a day is part of their business model it's one way low cost carriers keep costs down experts say the budget airlines have overreached themselves with their super tight schedules a single flight delays can stop or a whole timetable and even if the plane shows up luggage doesn't always arrive with it in europe eight budget items pay one thousand passengers are reported missing each year passengers have no choice but to accept that a bargain flight comes with a certain degree of uncertainty it's a price many are still willing to pay. or. should if laws will ryanair and of the budget airlines actually have to rethink
10:24 am
their business models which relies on squeezing employees very. i think they do get out absolutely we've seen that over and over again of course ryan air being the most affected airline because they're basically the king and the budget six meant they kind of invented it and they put the price pressure on ninety year old flights to london fifteen year. flights to venice some people expect these days that you can fly to your vacation destination for about the same price as you going to pay for your first cocktail on the beach that is obviously not a sustainable model and if people are only willing to shell out that kind of money of course you cannot pay your pilots and your crew at decent price so this has run its course and over the long run i think this is not going to work out anymore. last heart of the. ports thank you very much. strained ties with the u.s. are taking their toll on turkey's currency is it another new low falling another
10:25 am
five percent on friday after crushing below six layers to the dollar for the first time iran has lost about half of its value since the beginning of the year this comes off the high level talks with washington over the jailing of an american pastor fails to reduce tensions fears of turkey's economy is overheating. that's bringing france talking strange booze and turkey has been on the scrutiny on the markets for a while what's triggered this new slide of the lira. well the diplomatic route between turkey and the united states has accelerated things but from the point of view of investors the mere fact that the currency the lira has lost around about thirty percent in the course of this year is reason enough to pull their investments out of the country as quickly as they can as every return all those investments of course of course is being weakened with
10:26 am
a strong depreciation for turkey itself this is a big problem the country has relied heavily on foreign investments for decades. turkey's government says it will now outlined a new economic model today can we expect the other one just ordering the economy to grow. well first of all it will be interesting to see whether the minister for finance and treasury i'll buy it our coup is present and one son in law will have more substantial things to say than the president himself who you know dismissed fears in the past by saying we have our god add one also blamed higher interest rates to spark inflation which is just plain wrong in terms of the new economic model what's being speculated on the markets now is whether this will include the international monetary fund the i.m.f. many pundits many experts are convinced that this is the way for the country to go turkey should call the international monetary fund for help just like argentina has
10:27 am
