10:00 pm
this is live from berlin tonight israel the polls have closed in the closest election in years an incumbent prime minister in the political fight of his life a challenger with a real chance of winning both candidates declaring victory voters today asked to decide for term prime minister benjamin netanyahu or former general and political newcomer many guns who will be israel's next leader we'll go live to jerusalem for the first results also coming up tonight britain's prime minister to resign may make a deadline dash to europe to avoid
10:01 pm
a break so it crashed just three days until britain leaves the european union today may met president microland in paris to plead for another extension earlier she made the same plea to german chancellor angela merkel here in berlin. i bring to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome tonight in israel it is simply too close to call a vote counting is underway in israel's parliamentary election exit polls showing prime minister benjamin netanyahu could party and the challenger benny gantz and his blue and white alliance both in a neck and neck race both men have in the last hour claimed victory voters have been deciding whether to extend that yahoo's conservative tenure for
10:02 pm
a fifth term or vote for a move to the center left with the former military chief. new to politics as always israeli elections are being closely watched in the entire. region. or i don't want to take you now to jerusalem where are you cramer she is following the election results as they come in good evening to utah and you so talk us through the numbers as they stand right now. yes you said brenda it's a very close race it's a very dramatic election even in here there at the moment we only have exit polls of my published by several t.v. channels and they are a bit contradictory they're not really conclusive at the moment so there is channel twelve who gives the blue and white a lead actually it's thirty seven seats we're talking about the knesset seats one hundred twenty knesset seats and then he could and thirty three seats now channel
10:03 pm
thirteen gives them a tie at thirty six and thirty six and also another broadcast. also gives the blue white a very narrow lead over the likud so that as well is a bit of a surprise here although what has been leading an old polls up to the election day now of course everybody is doing here now the mathematics what does it mean for the two blocks. and you saw as well as we did that within the last hour both netanyahu and guns have declared victory about how do you read that what is it me. well i think i mean mr gunns has said to basically he could has promised to attain forty seats that didn't make it the losers of the elections now that's of course mr netanyahu say we won because what they are looking at now is how would they be able to form a coalition and at the moment at least it looks like that the writing bloc would
10:04 pm
still have a narrow lead over the center left but again it's very early tonight and the only exit polls and i think both want to take advantage now you know saying taking the momentum so to speak and showing you know that they're in the lead and you say it's very early in this process and with these numbers as close as they are when can we expect to get final results are we talking about some time when state morning. yeah i mean we're expecting them to take it and now in the next hours was so overnight that because such a close race we have to wait and see basically but they should be known by early morning but then it's not yet clear still by that time how the possible coalition will be fun because then the whole process will start it's actually the party leaders will then recommend who they would see as prime minister and then the
10:05 pm
president will actually. the party he things who the leader who has the most chances to from the next coalition government so it's a bit of a longer process still and it will be a long night certainly all right tanya great on the story force in jerusalem tanya thank you. and our coverage continues here at the big table with me now is gilmer's yano he is a middle east analyst with the german institute for international and security affairs feels good to have you back on the show both as we heard netanyahu when guns are claiming victory what does each candidate have working for him and against him at this stage yes if you needed proof of the fact that this race is too close to call is this claim of victory by both candidates one of the interesting things is really about a small parties at the moment a hoot and then you're right according to the polls are not passing the fresh hold might influence the composition of the blocs the so-called blocks of the left and right if we speak about that tomorrow morning really for guns there's two things
10:06 pm
really working for him first of all we have to remember that the evidence and the record it's all of the to turn yellow alleged corruption of the a diet trends are going to be published in the next couple of weeks which might contribute to a specific climate or public climate basically supporting guns and these are indictments against him on corruption charges right one of them on bribery others on different issues but the idea is that if there were held off you know not to service election propaganda basically but now they're going to be out in the open influencing the general climate the second issue much more indicative when we define those so-called blocs we have to take into account the fact that they were created this separation based on this options that we have a classic left versus right elections but it's not what we have here we have right versus center it means that guns is a little bit more flexibility to actually deal with specific fatah's that we traditionally put within the right wing a camp such as
10:07 pm
a leader among others because he's there is because he's more in the center so he can reach out than both saudis is basically a wide buffet of opinions here stretching all the way from the you that would be a big strength right well yes absolutely but there is one thing walking definitely against him you know the traditional kingmaker of these really elections that will . the religious parties i don't see any hope for any option that would be able to build a coalition without them now here comes the ability. who made the separation of religion and state into his trademark in many ways their persona non-grata all of the tall talks of course never say never but they might be changes especially when it comes to the rotation the plan rotation between the two the might have to constantly for looking a little bit towards the next weeks it might have to consider it in order to bring the children of the books in but usually we're talking about ultra orthodox it's a given that they're going to vote for the crude right well it is true that in the last decade they feel a themselves closely with the right wing i think the most
10:08 pm
important interest for the docs and it's been the same the last three decades is being part of the government to preserve their specific needs a specific demands regarding budgets and other issues so it is a trade off or they were told to docs but if we see some cracks within the right some defections of specific part is they might choose to jump on the guns again less likely than the other option but still an option this election today was described as a virtue of kenya b.b. versus b.b. fatigue of course b.b. is referring to benjamin netanyahu the prime minister is this election a referendum on his previous four terms write three c. in two different concepts in the center one this is the kingdom in hebrew and one left field which can only be translated as a sensible notion of public duty and i think it was an attempt by the guns campaign to really put the differentiated two candidates on this specific aspect so it's
10:09 pm
really about this issue not necessarily the agenda of the government as we mentioned very little difference in the level of core positions between them but about the way you govern the specific issues of corruption the ability of it and yell to actually make decisions when he's involved or when it's complicated and all those legal issues. are mostly on are helping us to understand this election in israel as the first results come in and we appreciate it thank you thank you. well here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world u.s. attorney general william barr has promised to release every death get a copy of special counsel robert mohler his report on russian election meddling within a week maher has faced intense pressure to release the full report after initially publishing a short summary of it or portrayed its findings as highly favorable to president donald trump. hosting with donald trump he has hosted egyptian president. for talks at the white house today trump praised sisi save the egyptian leader is doing quote

10:13 pm
president emanuel earlier today she was here in berlin for talks with jasper uncle americal may want an extension to the beginning of brics it now appears reportedly favors a short extension the government here in berlin reportedly favors a longer one. the reason may may have been given a friendly french welcome in paris but it wasn't an easy day president calling is often seen as the european leader with the toughest demands may was lucky this time france softened its stance and said a delay within limits was an option for the long awaited brags that still france and of the european countries are getting increasingly impatient we want to understand what do you need this extension for and what is the political asset roundings our own series a may to have this extension before her visit to paris may have traveled to berlin to out of play for an extension to german chancellor angela merkel. just as with
10:14 pm
everything involving brags that to resume is a rival didn't go quite as planned she was obviously a little too early and merkel wasn't there to welcome her after the meeting merkel said breaks it could even be extended to the beginning of twenty twenty but many european leaders are urging the british to provide more clarity. this was voiced on tuesday morning at a meeting of e.u. foreign ministers. and we are waiting finally for substantive steps in the right direction it is to get up to now it's nothing at all has changed and we are of course thinking about an appropriate extension of the deadline and also about a longer extension i must however come with very strict conditionals on guns cotillion. the official visits to billin in paris to resume a still has tough times ahead with the upcoming emergency summit in brussels. all right let's take this story now to brussels i'm joined by correspondent barbara
10:15 pm
veins we're going to need to you barbara here we are again on the eve of another big e.u. summit on brags that details are emerging this evening of the european union's terms for a break sit extension and they include and i'm quoting here a so-called boris clause as in boris johnson what's that about. that is so so to call a child safety lock against a future prime minister that might be called boris johnson that means somebody from the camp of the hard to tears in london and it operates in a way that britain will have to pledge sincere cooperation as long as it is a member of the european union and france even once as free monthly checks on whether they really do that and if they don't they might even then be kicked out so we're not quite there yet but that's the rough outline of it other than that there will be an extension the length as yet to be determined tomorrow night that will be
10:16 pm
the big fight amongst the twenty seven e.u. leaders in brussels at the summit and there are other obligations also the britain will have to participate in the european elections unless they figured out till the twenty third of may how to leave the european union ratify the withdrawal agreement and go that's of course what everybody in brussels really wishes for yeah it's amazing there were boris clause against boris and the bad breaks it boys i guess you could say the european union's chief brights gave shape to michel barnier he spoke today appeared to brew out a no deal brecht's take a listen to what he said who didn't know to come will never be the european union's decision on the coup we have worked for an agreement for a treaty that is much more than just a deal. provides guarantees breaks it creates uncertainty for e.u. citizens and for ours and it's more than a deal it's
10:17 pm
a treaty. that's the take from siobhan yeah there's also indications that france's president emanuel micron may be softening his stance when it comes to the links of this breaks delay he's favored a short extension so for how long of an extension will paris tolerate now. that we will figure out tomorrow it is very likely and that's the way the european union operates it's going to be something between the one that i'm going to america finds tolerable and these three two maybe four or five months that crumbs in my craw will really find suitable so let's say late fall or maybe right after christmas something like that is in the realm often possible and likely and micron really emphasizes different things here because he is worried about the european union being posen from within not only by the possible emergence off the back bad
10:18 pm
boys of breath once they come to brussels but also by the constant internal discussions by being forced to deal with her exit and this whole negativity and the present chaos that it brings europe has things on it's that is really what trying to say all right our correspondent in brussels over these along the story for us tonight on the eve of that emergency e.u. summit barbara thank you. you're watching d.w. news still to come a move to bring a painting from the year. to a virtual life in twenty nine teams it's happening right here in berlin where technology has opened a window into another world we'll find out how. the hurricane maria wreaked serious damage when it struck puerto rico eighteen months ago now a group of young inventors is using drones and the internet to speed up emergency response times and to secure life saving communications following natural disasters

10:21 pm

10:23 pm
a fee for each player signed but since the trumpet ministration considers the cuban federation to be part of the cuban government this would go against u.s. sanctions united states national security council spokesman garrett marquise said on twitter the administration looks forward to working with major league baseball to identify ways for cuban players to have the individual freedom to benefit from their talents and not as property of the cuban state for now at least cubans hoping to pursue a career in the u.s. have once again found themselves with the entry door for me shut. well now for some fascinating news from turkey for history blogs archaeologists there think that they may have found the world's oldest ship wreck in waters off the mediterranean coast researchers believe the wreck is around three thousand six hundred years old it appears that this ship was transporting copper they had been

10:25 pm
critics brentano in clash with that it was as if the eyelids had been cut away because this work is so spare. only a single figure can be seen on the beach which is otherwise disaster. but now the monk is entering the age of the reality with high tech glasses you can now immerse yourself in this must a piece and to meet the monk in a life sized representation. of it you lose yourself in a different world if great. virtual reality experts and the national gallery have worked together on the project for one and a half years. we always try not just to reproduce the painting but to create a new world and in that way to interpret the painting and try to understand what the painter was thinking and what his vision was.
10:26 pm
here virtual reality is more than just a gimmick the monk by the sea was extensively restored between twenty thirteen and twenty sixteen seven layers of vanished had to be removed the dark and paint their head obscured the images true colors it became apparent that casper darvish friedrich hadn't a riginal he designed the picture quite so radically but actually rather conventionally the master romantic had put three boats in the picture the virtual reality experience reveals the sketch and also tries to convey to the user friedrichs ingenious use of paint to create his groundbreaking work. we had to who would not want an image that opens up like a new world and to be able to enter it and with this access you completely learn and experience what was previously simply not possible. and of course it should
