european governments of refused to allow the vessels to dock despite requests from the european union. has only been president for three days but brazil's paulson our own house already begun a purge of officials who don't share his far right idea ology on the move to give police impunity so how far will he go. i'm still going to welcome to the program. the personal details of hundreds of german politicians have been stolen and published on twitter john and security agencies are now investigating the data breach which include cell phone numbers and credit card details the government says law makers at all levels have been affected journalists and celebrities were also targeted the identity of the hackers has not been established. even german chancellor angela merkel has been affected the leaked
5:02 pm
data includes a fax number e-mail address and several letters purported to come out of her office it's not clear yet if the leaked documents are authentic said sim file however even if a large part of the data concerned where authentic experience that in such cases falsified data might have known extends to. hundreds of other german politicians were targeted by the hackers from every german political party except the right wing populist party the cyber terrorists then use twitter to make public personal data such as phone numbers id documents chats invoices and even photos of their children germany's justice minister catalina barly condemned the leaks as an attack on the country's democracy the left's parliamentary party co-leader says he's deeply shocked. it's an attack on the social cohesion of our country. i've read and heard that many artists journalists and politicians are
5:03 pm
affected. the aim is obviously to create a climate of fear a climate of insecurity in our country and the leak was first discovered thursday evening however it appears the first document started appearing in december with a twitter account releasing information daily in the style of an advent calendar none of the internal documents that were released are reported to be highly sensitive at the moment there is no known suspect nor motivation. let's not deceive ourselves we are obviously transparent and at the mercy of such attacks. this is intolerable at least so far as i know. it's not the first time that german politicians have been hacked russia was accused of a series of cyber attacks that stole data from computers in the german parliament in two thousand and fifteen and last year the german government's i.t. network came under a fresh attack russian hackers were allegedly also to blame. chief

political correspondent linda crane well. said despite what we just heard but government says no sensitive data has been leaked what do they mean. they mean that so far what we know is that most of this data is data of a personal nature as you heard in the report that means maybe credit card numbers private e-mail addresses apparently a chat or two now the authenticity to city of the data that has that has been seen could not yet all be confirmed it may be that some of. these items are in fact falsified but at any rate this differs from those previous attacks as we've just heard those were attacks on the physical infrastructure of the german government of the parliament that is not the case here so that's why so far at least it appears that the information is of a personal nature and doesn't for instance relates to diplomatic or political
5:05 pm
sensitive information and so what has been the german government's response. well the cyber defense coordinating body which is essentially a unit that brings together security agencies from the federal the regional level agencies responsible for domestic security as well as agencies that look at international security all of those are under the roof of this cyber defense organization which is now conducting a very comprehensive investigation but the early days as as the report said the theft only became evident apparently yesterday evening so so far we don't know that much about how they're proceeding or what they found out. as we've just been hearing and you've been telling us that this is not the first time the german political establishment has been caught. who is the other fingers being
5:06 pm
pointed out this time. well last time around let's start there there seemed to be pretty clear indications that the group behind the hack was known as a p twenty eight it is a russian based hacking organization that is very closely linked to the russian spy agency the g r u naturally one of the first suspicions when this newest attack came to light was that perhaps this once again might be might be due to russian hacking now though some cyber experts say they're not so certain some cyber experts are saying perhaps this is coming from the political right here in germany one reason to believe that is that so far it appears that no politicians from germany's right wing a.f.d. party were affected by this hack but again it's early days we don't know for sure others other cyber experts are saying possibly this hack was something that that's
5:07 pm
called hacktivism a somebody who's trying to make people aware how easy it is to breach private data and perhaps somebody who's putting this out there as a as a wake up call melinda crane thank you so much. staying in germany shots have been fired in the center of cologne and police are still looking for three people who fled the scene i placed a call to this residential building in the city center after receiving reports of the shooting one man was arrested special forces then searched the building for a no holds of the suspects or injuries sources are not confirming why the shooting occurred we continue to follow this developing story. as we're going through now on some of the other stories making news around the world at least one person has died after tropical storm made landfall in thailand the storms moving quickly across the south of the country bringing heavy rain storm the seas despite the high winds products actually weaker than expected and is likely to be downgraded to

was because most of the irish government has created this enemy that he was going to free brazil for socialism and that's what he started doing of although we know that there was never a socialist government in brazil so the this is the situation there in brazil is what the civil servants work for political parties because it's aims of the president would come in as i will or everyone who worked for the last lot you've all got to go to actually they are civil servants they say in the state a state officials they are think officials but they have cognition. responsibility adults they are commission for specific leader roles and for that you get. nominated by the government so you can have a responsibility post. or something because that every contract they can just say right thank you you can all go they go they go back to the ministry and they will probably have no political role they would just minutes of just. getting paid i

three days brings this the ministry of education and nec to the measure to abolish the secretary for diversity which fights for. more opportunities for women for blacks for indigenous education for instance ok so this is a man who took fifty five percent of the votes he sounds like quite a divisive figure you know what are you expecting from brazilian politics and over the next five years i think even the opposition still taking its time to organize their opposition. the media's house of being attacked by both journalists were not allowed to follow all the steps in the inauguration. join a list were encouraged not to move brusquely because they could be sought so i think most institutions that would control this government is still trying to

too. and so both sides now have maybe little bit more of an incentive to get together and to figure this out even though no immediate breakthrough is expected but has the overall global economic situation changed at all because a slowdown is going to be able to play. well yes there is certainly a fear of a slowdown in the markets and has been in the past weekend even months even fed chair jerome powell said so today which by the way gave the docs another hit. he would be watching the markets but we're going to have to look at the data and the data the economic data is not very clear it's mixed today we've got positive news on the on the jobs report for example. popular joke goes the markets predict nine out of five recessions. so that fear factor may be maybe a problem in itself some economists say that if we worry too much without reason we
