4:03 pm
michael cohen traumas from the past and a lawyer and close friend he pled guilty to a range of charges including campaign finance violations and the man who once said he would take a bullet for donald trump swore he paid hush money to donald trump alleged mistresses including stormy daniels he said he acted at the direction of whom he referred to as the candidate widely understood to be donald trump. he worked to pay money to silence two women who had information that he believed would be detrimental to the two thousand and sixteen campaign and to the candidate and the campaign. according to the deputy u.s. attorney co and then try to get reimbursed for the payments using phony invoices. and minutes later a second court case deliver drama mr trump's woman complain manager paul manifold was convicted on eight counts of financial crimes manifolds trial is the first to much from special counsel robert mina's investigation into russian meddling in the
4:04 pm
two thousand and sixteen election on his way to a companion rally investor ginia trump had this to say about the manifold case i feel very sad about that. because it is probably me but i still feel you know it's a very safe thing to have. nothing to do with russian police who started rushing killing to business i mean nothing to do and so we're just going to break i. want to go to the most ardent supporters night the court case appeared to matter you know i think our day our break that. we don't like. to take lose out of the rush of more chant we got a whole big company i told the trans crowd continues to cheer him on i joining me now live from washington is the bureau chief
4:05 pm
alexander from nominates alexander two close associates of donald trump a facing serious jail time he's been talking this morning what is he said. i think that one is surprised the president turned to twitter today to accuse michael cohen of lying making up stories to get a deal he also. compare fine and. charged michael cohen pleaded guilty to it's not a crime at all and that actually seems to be the main defense line of his lawyers his outside counsel giuliani issued a statement saying that michael cohen's actions reflect a pattern of lies and honesty over a significant period of time when we talk about reaction on man of force that's something that still known. as world today that's a different picture the president said on twitter that he feel badly for
4:06 pm
a man not for it and his family and yesterday he also already said that a man of ford was a good man and that if you just how is the rest of america reacting to these developments. when we talk to critics of the president they say that they are convinced that this could prove to be the most consequential day of the presidency a president in crisis how. can his advisers his lawyers supporters see it in a very different way many of them are even convinced that the president can turn these events to his advantage by reinforcing his supporters you that he is and that all of that smear campaign trumps former lawyer like acorn has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations which implicate the president that sounds
4:07 pm
pretty serious for mr trump. it sounds very serious because what michael cohen sat in the courtroom was basically he admitted that he committed a crime and he said that he was direct and coordinated by the then candidate meaning donald trump although michael cohen didn't call the president by his name so this is serious however experts here doubts that a sitting president can be indicted that has never happened before but of course it will be up to talk to prove to the prosecutors to decide where we're going to choose this path and example in the other case the former trunk campaign manager pulled him out of force has been convicted on fraud and tax evasion charges but trump says those charges have no connection to him is he in the clear that.
4:08 pm
well he is definitely trying to distance himself order from this trial and from foreign we have to say that it wasn't about donald trump it wasn't about his campaign in this case but pulled him out for maybe talking to the special counsel in the future maybe to reduce his sentence and there is a trial coming up in september. right alexander phenomena bureau chief in washington thank you. and with us midterm elections coming in november tech companies are looking to dis information campaigns in that influencing the outcome facebook and twitter have shut down hundreds of misleading accounts linked to russia and iran u.s. politicians are also recent concerns of the separate revelations of alleged russian hacking. social media giants acting this time before it's too late to

4:13 pm
during the french investigations more was found out about the second person the berlin men. see and that led to the arrest today here in britain and if i mean what is the background off these arrests in france and germany now and how involving obviously the authorities. well german authorities believe that the person who was today arrested in germany monument he didn't pose an immediate threat to germany in terms of a terrorist attack at this very moment they rather wanted to find out more about these explosives the t a t p that was in his flat well in the rate they didn't find the explosives they this is still missing. a different subject is also highly delicate as you know in germany we had the biggest terrorist attack in two thousand and sixteen on the christmas market by an islamist called. and now there is a connection between and these two figures the person in france and here the one
4:14 pm
who was arrested today in berlin they went to the same mosque here in berlin and the two arrested in france and germany and also on the phone of. the phone number of claymore b. was found in france so there are connections between the most deadly islamist terrorists that we had here in germany and two people that had a huge amount of this highly explosive fifty eighty p. the two combined would have been an even more deadly mixture and authorities will now look closer on these connections you do have these security affairs correspondent five been funded thank you very much. you're watching the news coming up ahead appeared a scamp in istanbul a woman a victim from our own home but now she has to face the consequences of a plunging economy despite the election promise of president.

having bene not good news for everyone no really no europe's faking literally in its hottest summers it's one hundred seventy six and that's very bad news for many farmers is hardly any brain it's threatening the livelihoods of many drowned is causing havoc around the world this year no clouds in sight in europe as you can see from the international space out the worst in decades farmers are finding it hard to keep their animals alive state aid has been allocated to landholders. the u.s. state of california is also facing severe drought order supplies have been declining for decades but this year is especially grim more wheat and corn will be consumed in twenty eighteen they can be produced reserves a dwindling. germany has the amount three hundred forty million euros to help farmers hit by drought as the result of a cabinet meeting today help can't come soon enough we visited
4:16 pm
a couple of just outside in the fields and brandenburg are some of the sandy assistant germany and it hasn't rained in the region since april for weeks drought related damage has prompted the german farmers association to demand rapid financial aid now that the government announced millions of euros in assistance the farmers lobby says prioritization will be key. i would like to stress that it's important to support the farms that have suffered really bad setbacks losses of more than thirty percent oxygen we don't want to cast a wide net. we want to target the aid where it's needed most. is to allow the farms to continue to operate. that could make the fener farming call for it if. the head of the government's announcement it said it's lost seventy percent of the crops it needed to feed its cattle it wasn't able to build up large
4:17 pm
reserves due to poor harvests in the past. for out of the drought which means that we have a considerable shortage and he. did even the one time we couldn't fill the contracts are not included with the agricultural co-operative due to poor yield sized co-operative has a deficit if you thought of five hundred thousand euros this year. it's from. the german farmers association expects this year's harvest to be down twenty six percent this again is likely to make prices rise. the numbers with our financial correspondent daniel cole as we heard their billions in damages and the millions in aid what went wrong. well then when you consider that for quite some time it was not even clear if those farmers would receive anything germany's agriculture minister you can look and she's by the way the daughter of a wine grower has been very careful in the past week saying that she needs
4:18 pm
a complete overview of the situation and she can't promise the money everybody you want so i guess millions are at least something now that's also what germany's farmer association has been saying today as with a statement they were already prepared for a scenario in which farmers would not have received anything because guess there are farmers that have really suffered this summer we're talking about ten thousand to urgently need this money but there are also others who even profited with this whether wineries are expecting and most of the german reason excellent grades also farmers with pumpkins plants or fields they have also benefit fed if it is so yeah at least they're getting some money but yes they wanted more going to say the one grows up having a great time but what about the farmers who are hit hard will they invest that money in irrigation that this still so dependent on the rain and it's not coming.
4:19 pm
exactly well this money is mostly for those farmers who would be bankrupt after the season without support and yes not much rain is expected at least it's going to cool down i was just checking it in the next days but not much more can be changed in this season also we have in some areas of germany quite a water shortage at the moment so that wouldn't even work it will be more of a support to survive this year and hopefully again have better results in the coming years but if we can't trust the weather experts who are saying that also the next summer could be like that farmers might need a plan b. it sounds like it's going to be dry for a while then have been prepared for us thank you. and farmers in mexico have found a culprit for a drought in the central state of puebla they blame german comic fog fucking in june b.w. started to use pale cannons to protect new cars in the plant's outdoor parking lots of devices are meant to disrupt the formation of pale in the atmosphere and prevent

4:31 pm
the fact forums shut down hundreds of misleading it comes russia and. new research is fun. found disturbing links between on digital habits on the social media platform and behavior offline in particular when it comes to refugee violence here in germany social media editor is here to bring us up to speed welcome khana what exactly did this study find was of this study focused actually specifically on germany these were two german researchers working at the university of warrick and they analyzed refugee attacks over
4:32 pm
a two year span here in the country and they were looking for commonalities here what was going on in the communities where these attacks took place so they looked at a lot of different variables education demographics but one thing stood out in particular and that was actually facebook usage so for every town in every city they examine the word answer i refuse the attack took place there was a higher than average facebook use and this is really interesting in fact in cities where facebook usage was significantly above average refugee attacks increased by around fifty percent i mean that is a huge number these researchers also say facebook could have actually driven ten percent of the refugee attacks overall during that two year period so you know this is really interesting stuff in fact they also found when the internet when down so facebook wasn't available at all in these cities refugee attacks went down so another link then to facebook use it really kind of shocking findings and as you
4:33 pm
mentioned more bad news for facebook as if the company needs more exactly and the what is it about facebook that gives it such power shift by how full impact on the yemen facebook has a lot of factors that can make it a powerful platform the researchers point to a few of them in the first one is the facebook algorithm this is kind of the secret sauce that decides what contents we will see when we look at our timeline the algorithm really promotes content that has lots of engagement so very emotional content and often it's negative so. anti refugee content really fits into that algorithm and facebook just tends to automatically push that towards its users secondly the study points to so-called super posters these are people that are always on the platform they're very active many of these people especially in germany might be posting anti refugee content and they're sort of creating this illusion that the feeling about refugees is more negative in the real world than it really is based on what people are seeing when they log on to facebook and the
4:34 pm
third is this filter bubble writes of people on facebook they follow accounts and news outlets and people who only agree with them and they rarely see other opposing viewpoints reza researchers say these are the factors that really can help set the stage for these sorts of anti immigrant attacks this is sounding like of a disturbing trend what can be done to fight these effects yeah i mean it's not an easy question you know facebook of course has been cracking down on hate speech in germany there's a powerful law that has huge penalties for companies like facebook other social media sites if they don't remove hate speech within twenty four hours we actually spoke with one of the study's researchers he says there is no easy fix i'm sure it would be did you did facebook only. combat the problem we had in our study i would love and could be used as to actively seek out a few points on facebook because facebook. mechanically you always push you
4:35 pm
towards people off the opinion the solution might lie with facebook users themselves that's right because we have to have a careful as to how we operate on social media thank you very much for me us that story. and recent months italy has tightened its border controls spain has become the main destination for african refugees and migrants trying to reach europe and one entry point in spain's north african explained a fee ota hundreds of refugees and migrants have stolen fences in a bid to enter europe into a tree at least one hundred fifty people managed to cross in a bid to hindu more from the exclusive authorities that erected a six need to hide fence along its border. but for those who make it through it's no guarantee of an easy passage to a new life is all of a sonnet for follows a group intent on making it to europe whatever the cost. salif
4:36 pm
and his friends have to make their way to the hyde old carefully it's in the mountains of morocco near the border with say utah. they say the police could show up at any time and destroy their camp the group have thousands of kilometers behind them now just a few hundred meters separate them from europe that and fence this man from guinea shows as deep cuts there from his attempts to storm the border for. my father is dead my mother has nothing not even food i'm the oldest son and i want to try and make some money to help my mother that's why i left. they have been travelling for two years since leaving now they are stuck here with some fifty thousand others all hoping to make the journey from morocco to europe. some effects been waiting six months for this chance say what suspense is his final
4:37 pm
hurdle. i have many friends who have made it to europe. so many have recently crossed the border we trust in god that we will also make it someday. the fence to stop them it's eight kilometers long and fitted with razor sharp wire along with the territory of this is the only other border in africa on the other side. from the spanish. it's his job to secure this border but lately that hasn't always been possible. over six hundred migrants managed to storm the fence at the end of july the police are helpless and talk of unprecedented levels of violence makeshift flame throwers quicklime and grappling hooks are the migrants weapons of choice but
4:38 pm
i am more recruit others are going to they were very well prepared and organized. but what's small there was so violent that we could not get to the fence. and in fact threw acid at us and did all they could to prevent us from closing the holes that i had cut into the fans. of the. boss a boss of a victory over the fence it's taken years for them to reach their destination. the temporary reception center in c.u. to is fit to burst they have to stay here for one year then they can continue on to spanish mainland only a few of them apply for asylum since hardly any of them have any chance of asylum in europe it's putting pressure on the city of eighty thousand people the number of arrivals is barely sustainable council representatives say the situation in seal to is becoming untenable. that you have to respect the boat is it's not say again that
4:39 pm
the migrants are attacking off fence in this way we do not have the capacity to accommodate everyone here would be impossible now but. that's another reason why tough border checks are part of every day life in sale to as well as hours of traffic jams some twenty thousand people travel in and out over the course of the day many moroccans make a living out of trading with the spanish and played. for alfonso crew sato and the guardian veal monitoring this border is a mammoth task six hundred employees work around the clock they use cameras to control the. various sections of the fans and also the coastal area around the strait of gibraltar are it's a well rehearsed team but it's reaching its limits. but it's stopping large groups of people is very complicated you need good cooperation between the moroccan
4:40 pm
authorities and our and. usually when both sides organize themselves well and everything goes well then we reach our goal where's. the young man in the mountains of morocco believe in strength in numbers saif and his friends are already planning their next attempt to storm the fence they're tired of the brutality of the hands of the police. they only find food at a nearby rubbish dump a soft drink a cucumber a moldy potato life here is unbearable. and. morocco is teeming with police offices i mean all of my friends are left guinea with me made it to syria. what am i supposed to do here i'll stay here until i can get in. their sense of desperation is what drives them
4:41 pm
for salif and his friends it's europe or nothing. a powerful earthquake has shaken venezuela's northeastern coast and parts of the caribbean but despite a magnitude of seven point three it caused major damage because it was so deep no deaths have been reported at the same time that is it is have otherwise mainly a new currency that's just been ruled on by the government it's an attempt to restore confidence in the battered economy where inflation was expected to reach one million percent a year before the currency to form. the queuing for practically nothing the bank machine pays out a maximum of ten new bolivar's per person around fifteen year a sense the government promised the currency reform would revolutionize the economy but there's no sign of that yet. we just have to hope that this is the answer.
4:42 pm
we're stuck in a dark tunnel trapped in a dead end street. inflation is running at thirteen thousand percent the new banknotes brought in on monday have five fuels zeroes people are wary the days there's been panic buying driven by the fear of prices rising ever higher venezuela's socialist government is facing its deepest ever crisis president nicolas maduro is asking for trust and promising wage increases. have decided to research the minimum wage from now on workers were earning one thousand eight hundred dollars dollars. a new minimum wage of around twenty six year as a month represents an enormous jump thirty five times more than it used to be for baker and dress as well that means laying off staff. only better than what we think of at the moment i have seventeen employees i won't be able to keep them on. i just
4:43 pm
can't afford to pay this minimum wage seventeen times over with. president maduro is turning to drastic measures in the hope of staying in office the whole country depends on the oil industry but decades of corruption have drained the state owned oil giants and seen production fall by half the government is counting on far reaching reforms but economists are warning of devastating consequences. reforms are contradictory and oil incomes are significantly reduced. it will mean unprecedented turmoil. in search of a solution maduro's government is prepared to risk the ultimate gamble raising petrol prices to world market levels it's a hugely unpopular measure petro in venezuela is still much cheaper than water.
4:44 pm
you've got to remember we're an oil producing country and now we're supposed to pay the equivalent in dollars where will that end. i just don't agree with it i mean the government needs to tell us how this is going to help its allies who say this is going to improve the economy i mean it's one of them in. the never ending shortages and hyperinflation have already driven large numbers away in the last four years some two point three million venezuelans have left the country. over to been physically with the leases an artificial intelligence ben thank you have returned from smart factories in which the machines communicate with each other to improve production to intelligence software that validates your insurance policy ai is pervading our lives bolin is one of the top ten locations in the world for artificial intelligence research but companies
