7:02 pm
army to support him saying the generals should side with the venezuelan people he has proclaimed himself interim president of venezuela but had not been seen in public since wednesday in an apparent move to avoid arrest the united states and a string of other countries in the region have recognized as the head of state but venezuela's incumbent president nicolas maduro is continuing to stake his claim to the office. well our correspondent there has been following this story for us in caracas i spoke to him a little while ago and asked him what one go though has been telling his supporters well yes this. is the legitimate president. interim president of venezuela and it's a very optimistic speech that has been given out he said that he actually did manage to do what this government hasn't done in six years and that is to british managers to wear a sweater which he has solicited from the u.s.
7:03 pm
and other countries so we don't know how there is an active power struggle in place in venezuela but why the has always stood. for tomorrow they're expecting to have the bushes. where they announced a new one people about what is going to be the plan now were to start this interim for we have elections and he has stated that they will enact a law and to all military. support this new governments. are following all the latest developments for us there in qatar. moving on to another story now and a longtime ally of u.s. president donald trump has been provisionally released from custody after being arrested this morning roger stone paid a two hundred fifty thousand dollars bond and will face travel restrictions now
7:04 pm
he's been charged with obstruction of justice witness tampering and making false statements a stone's an advisor to donald trump during the twenty six thousand election campaign and the charges stem from u.s. fetch special counsel robert miller and his investigation into whether the trump campaign colluded with russia in the election that's stone denies the charges here's what he said i would really not guilty to these charges i will defeat them in court i believe this is a politically motivated investigation i have troubled by the political motivations of russia. and as i had said previously there is no circumstances whatsoever under which i will their course witness against the president nor will i make up lies to ease the pressure on myself i look forward to being there fully and indicating rajan. waiter is on the story for us in washington and she joins us now
7:05 pm
hi maya what else can you tell us about what exactly roger stone is being charged with here. so there are seven counts against him including lying to congressional investigators attempted a witness tampering and possible obstruction of justice so these are just three things that look very similar to. what other people in trump's orbit who have also now been charged with crimes have been charged with all again related to go ings on that during the two thousand and sixteen us presidential campaign so this is roger stone we have to remember it was one of the closest people in trouble orbit one thing that trump and the white house has been able to do so far is say this person has been charged wasn't really part of the campaign i
7:06 pm
didn't really know this person this person was only involved for a few months and roger stone also was only involved in the trump campaign for a few months but he has been a close associate of president for decades and the white house is already attempting to try to waive this office something that's not related to the white house but that is much harder to do in this case my who is roger stone than what is his background. roger stone has been a background player in the us political scene for decades he actually worked for the richard nixon campaign and for people watching who might not know who richard nixon is he was a not a very beloved president in the one nine hundred seventy s. who ultimately was impeached and resigned over charges of obstruction of justice to roger stone remained very loyal to richard nixon and said that he even has a tattoo of richard nixon's face on his back so he has been involved with
7:07 pm
conservative politics in the u.s. for decades and again has been a close associate of president trump for very long time both he and paul man afford another former campaign official on the trump campaign were close associates in the one nine hundred eighty s. they were top of the game in terms of. lobbying so he also is in trump's inner circle and his arrest today his appearance before a court means that whatever investigations are going on now they're getting much closer to the president you know my and that is the question what is the fallout here for president trying. what we've seen today so far is the white house singing their usual song of there's been no collusion proven here this is nothing to do with the president and the thing that sarah huckabee sanders the press secretary said today was all of these people who've been arrested and charged and indicted yes they all were maybe in the president's orbit at some point but
7:08 pm
they were all arrested on charges that have nothing to do with the president and the thing is she's not wrong but what she's painting is a picture of a candidate during the campaign who was somewhat disconnected from his campaign staff she claims that he had no knowledge of the goings on of what roger stone was doing no knowledge of this now legendary meeting at trump tower between the president saw the president's son in law and this russian lawyer in which allegedly possible collusion was discussed which isn't a good look for the president so the more he tries to pull back from all these people around him are getting nabbed by the feds really just the worse it looks for him all right. following the story for us in washington maya thank you very much saying the u.s. and intensifying delays at the nation's airports and widespread disruptions across the federal government are instilling new urgency into efforts to find a resolution to the partial government shutdown but u.s.

7:10 pm
a modest i really reads for fernando every extra dollar kinds. this is can become my primary job and definitely not enough to get me through. on a monthly basis. back in washington d.c. the senate spent several hours debating two proposals each of which could have in theory brought the shutdown to an end the republicans want money for chumps border wall with mexico the democrats want to end the deadlock before beginning negotiations about border security then came the vote as expected neither proposal received majority support. i drink as talks over the border will continue to stall this is just the prelate to fresh negotiations the democrats are already working on a sweeping draft bill which me include trump stipulated five point seven billion dollars not for the wall but for border security meanwhile the government shutdown
7:11 pm
continues with drastic consequences the f.b.i. can no longer afford to pay its whistleblowers. at the airports pilots are at the mercy of key equipment that cannot be serviced. and experts are worried about a potential economic slump what's more eight hundred seven government employees remain on page. it's early morning and fernando garcia is heading back to the capital his parents had to buy a used train ticket for him think i would. probably have to look for a new job it's unfortunate. this week at a set. but i certainly don't want to leave the government i really like my job so i want to go back to work. he doesn't want to see exactly how much money he aired roosting coffee beans but it's enough to make ends meet for a few days. well with no end in sight to the shutdown
7:12 pm
a lot of americans are taking matters into their own hands our social media editor federico is with us she's been looking at that for us hi federico we saw that one man's experience there in a report what have you been seeing online well so many of the hashtag shutdowns stories is all over twitter and going through the thousands and thousands of tweets you really get a sense of how many people are struggling because of this shutdown and it's not just government employees themselves it's also their families often their husbands wives children graham parents who are relying on them financially and social media really has become a platform for a lot of people to seek help and one way of doing that a lot of people have been setting up fund raising campaigns really since the beginning of the shutdown hundreds and hundreds of fundraising pages have been started on the web site go fund me where there are workers are sharing their stories they're asking for support sometimes even for help to afford the basics and
7:13 pm
one of them is this young woman michelle she works at atlanta's international airport and she is one of the four hundred twenty thousand government employees who have who still are expected to work during the shutdown even. that pay and this is her go fund me page we actually got in touch with michelle and she told us today marks her said the second missing paycheck for her and of course she hasn't bills have been piling up since december she has only been able not even been able to pay half of them and she told us she is the only breadwinner in the family she is taking care of her mother who is ill and but still she is still expected to go to work and she told us that she has to get up every morning at two to be able to be at work at four so she shared really her frustration with us and i think it's a very understandable sense of frustration how are people like michelle coping with this i mean these were these fund raising campaigns as we saw but really they are
7:14 pm
relying on their communities for help and that's both offline and online for example we see that food banks are playing a crucial roles and many of them are really you know reaching out to federal employees targeting them through specific special initiatives and also we're seeing you know the community coming together as a regular american citizens just replying to some of those tweets by federal workers and offering direct help like this guy he's offering to help pay the mortgage of a foreign load park ranger and his family and support is also coming from outside the u.s. and this for instance is a picture from canadian air traffic controllers who they sent over to their u.s. counterparts it was a small gesture which i'm sure was much appreciated and of course we here doubly we'll keep tracking. those stories and if you have a story that you for if you're affected and you have a story that you would like to share you can reach out to us on twitter at d w news

7:22 pm
have a track record for doing partnerships you probably well know the story of ourselves and d.b.s. it's a long lasting story it's broken every record that there is of a relationship between a government and a private entity so we seek to do similar things but also seek to invite the private sector to invest in its own right by its own determinations and make a profit but generate wealth talking about the west's track record it often proposes solutions for african nations that are required laws to be changed what about instead focusing on what works in african nations already well you know we are part of an international system what works must be within a framework the framework must be appropriate relevant

7:32 pm
police in zimbabwe. let's face it it's not the police it is the military that sees on the streets all for. zimbabwe particulary no way with the second city but a very not ready to face city busy moving from door to door house two hours something people is really pussies over one thousand two hundred people if they notice it it is a thousand people have been killed. hundreds i'm deeply into it was because i was so but people need the most and i support the use of it as a political we put the number of women that are. the this is a prison so this is protected see the military is taking over it is just simply not as it ok this is a horrifying trend you're saying but we have also seen that president and god why is promising to investigate the alleged abuses doesn't that show that the
7:33 pm
government is indeed willing to take responsibility to look into what is allegedly happening. absolutely north east. or for the kind of idiot picked oh he's the author of the groups human rights abuses that are connected there is an unarmed civilian populace and remember this is the same president who in ancient egypt threw it in to save it there is news to us that security was intangible of that to say what is it that we know and what is good and if you ignore that source and not at the listed on the fifth of august clearly it six people were killed in the writing it will be said of the more i had lived before because it was so africa karim would not be found that the soldiers you're with sponsible for shooting but know if that has been taken him by the soldiers so deposal does it out his bones in the remain all consistent of all consumption or if
7:34 pm
the president approved if that means that sort of bad stuff squarely with him if he had wanted to stop the military you would have stopped the military maybe he can be from he's joined in the last year in billings. are you saying the buck stocks stops with the president these are his actions his boys on the street but mr beattie you know last week zimbabwe's information minister blamed your party a for the violence during these feel if you will protest does that mean that you should be shouldering some of the blame for what we're seeing on the streets in zimbabwe the violence a place. that those allegations are true naisi that banks are amazing to expect the government and the muslim himself must take fools portability if i don't see if he had lived the same salary increase you could not make the cost of fuel. go to today or that one dollar has to become the most expensive fuel in zimbabwe with many still in the will it will lead to five percent of our people.
7:35 pm
incidentally sort of the people are living in extreme poverty severity list the list diversity so all these things we have foreseeable so he can get it if it kills then you in no way when you think it gets in manic depression then most of it to four thousand dollars an hour so yes it is portable so big didn't we right in calling for the what they say are we there but the decision to push people in this is simply didn't ask people to stay home then decide to break into people's houses and started getting big one after the after the ok d.c. because it is because it is quite simple for the straights because the unions give the unions their critics who don't get the fictive if their weight but i want you to stick to the sport by beating up people bisecting down the iranians who sat down intending to just did it. all right mr beattie just very briefly with now if i

to decide how to move forward now there is a lot at stake around twenty one thousand jobs depend directly on the lignite that's a type of soft coal that's a heavy pollutant if you add the suppliers and the sub contractors that number actually increases to around seventy thousand jobs and lignite is still the source of our twenty two percent of germany's energy production so it is an ambitious goal to replace it with renewables in just a few years we'll get more on that in a moment but first clean energy campaigners that gathered to make their views known in berlin today. school can wait for lucas light now today he and his classmates have driven three hours from lubec to join a student demonstration in berlin they're here to protest about climate change. what you are i. guess i can one of the general problem is that there's not a lack of knowledge but of action that's why it's good to go in the streets now and express our views but we'll see what will come out of it processing and over the

7:39 pm
regardless of the outcome today lucas and his fellow demonstrators are set on that goal. their pricing the balun cold against global warming thousands of students from all across the country have arrived in the capital today to talk about and set to sign for germany exiting the coal industry as they know the decisions that are soon taken by the german government good idea fact their generation but those of the future too. to poland now where last month's fatal stabbing of the liberal mayor of don scares highlighted the country's political faultlines and its simmering culture wars especially when it comes to rock music the black metal band be in has come under fire for its use of religious imagery one conservative lawmaker says the band is by a lady the country's hate speech laws. that was on the book at him and his black metal band behemoths are about to start their war saw gig they're playing three shows in poland before kicking off their european tour which is bound to stir

7:41 pm
latest album. works like these draw the ire of many conservative polls today and also the anger of the country's government which is backed by the catholic church lawmaker dominic church in ski of the ruling law and justice party even reported adam d'arcy to the police. he just bridge below our criminal law is very very clear you can insult religion every religion you cannot you know her someone's feelings religious feelings and this is what he did these days scenes like these outside poland's parliament aren't uncommon this catholic anti-abortion activists placard reads reproduce. but not all polls think this way at him and he's more liberal minded fans often hang out in hair salons run by the rock musician he owns several in various large polish cities. poses poland's largely conservative and nationalist establishment through his combination of black metal music and his unique lifestyle but these are trying times i would.

a few several key defenders but of course this is a team that has proven already that they have no problem winning games on the rope against hanover who are yet to pick up a victory away from home and also i would say a win for them against ormont is we'll call it highly unlikely and but also there was some. good news this week and i think the best is to hear from lucy because he spoke about of the team's press conference. because that he has trained the whole week. in fact he was able to start training a new right away on monday. so marco is feeling good good good marcus feeling good marco royce of course who is one of the key players in dortmund i'm going to give another three points to dormant let your pick for the weekend and you mention you want to talk about byron there they are in you can seem possible not to talk about them they've got it we'll call it i would say an easy
7:47 pm
ride this weekend that byron let's not forget our hard on dortmund styles they really want to pick up as many points as possible before the end of the season they had that sort of dodgy we'll call it beginning but they things have calmed down now for nico coaches' side and they're very much focused on catching up on dortmund and keeping the pressure on the more so in that they're facing a still courtside and i'm a factor man i like loads of facts to me so going to give you some right now they've lost this is a national guard of course they've lost more games twelve than anyone else in the league and they were defeated last weekend against mines worst offense of course in the bundesliga and they've also scored the fused goals in the bundesliga so i don't think you get this win in game two byron you make i think i like your fact they're probably. all right publicly is from davis for thanks so much. right well germany is currently coasting at the world championships in a sport that a lot of people in the english speaking world might not be all that familiar with that handball arenas have been packed with fans from around the world excitement is
