9:11 pm
unacceptable. this is a beauty discrimination something like this they can all move against the jews that they're living in judea and samaria this is actually a racist decision. but air b.n. b. says the decision wasn't taken lightly in a statement on its website the company said its team wrestled with the decision but it concluded that it would remove listings and israeli settlements in the occupied west bank that are at the core of the dispute between israelis and palestinians israel captured the west bank in a nine hundred sixty seven war. most world powers say the settlements there are illegal and. palestinian authorities are behind the move. i think this is a pretty important decision because certain moments are considered international laws. the israeli government believes the move may violate u.s.

9:13 pm
day after their boss carlos ghosn was arrested. put in we're pretty tough to know stick with the rest is regrettable as he's the one who helped nissan turn around its business. i hope management can work hard to regain the public's trust most of it on what i take the place of. trust that carlos ghosn is accused of abusing the superstar auto manager is said to have under reported his income for several years and to have misused company money from asia to europe the news has had a ripple effect groans alliance is a major force on the global automotive market. i understand that the sun's chairman carlos ghosn was arrested it is extremely regrettable that we are seeing a development like this. i declined to comment on details of his case as prosecutors investigations are underway regarding its impact on the economy the japanese government will closely watch this development. beyond any potential
9:14 pm
economic consequences many japanese say they've experienced a sense of betrayal after the revelations. we do get if they are actually we also have a nissan car so i do feel deceived because essentially he was being dishonest. and when i hear nissan i think of a company that your hand is proud of my family drives a nissan but as the head of a company you shouldn't do something so irresponsible and as a japanese person i thought it was embarrassing. now a decision needs to be made about cohen's future on thursday nissan's board will determine its course of action. tech stocks are heavily losing market value on the trading floor some compare it to a bubble others say it's nothing to worry about the developments originated of course in the u.s. where the big names are under pressure but repercussions are global. a stock market slide driven by some of the biggest names in tech take apple at the beginning of

so many refugee families in lebanon rely on their children to pay the bills and the resources of aid agencies are overstretched it's unlikely that so many will be able to start working anytime soon. and so my is case is sadly not unique around half of refugees worldwide are children and many have little or no access to education that's according to unesco global education monitoring report it says that around four million refugees between the ages of five and seventeen did not attend school at all last year in some countries like lebanon or ghana only around half of refugees of school age attended primary school the figure is much worse for secondary education with only eleven percent in that age group enrolled in classes this is significantly less than the worldwide average the report also revealing that the higher someone's level of education the later the desire to flee their homeland people with

9:23 pm
the new society has the situation in germany germany is one of the leading countries in the world that have included refugees in national education systems and not only in terms of their basic education but also by giving them opportunities to recognise the skills and prior learning they have with them in order to integrate into the labor market in find employment opportunities because that is really key to their long term integration what is the special situation face in refugee camps concerning their education refugee camps are of course by themselves a form of exclusion in fact we see increasingly that there is a tendency for refugee populations to be moved out of comes because that will precisely be the one of the key factors to facilitate their inclusion and the international community has been particularly strongly supporting this tendency to move from humanitarian responses to long term development inclusion of refugees in societies thank you very much. a volcano and guatemala has begun erupting violently
