i am. this is deja vu news coming to you live from berlin the broader double of british prime minister barak johnson leaves politics in a family rout of a brick said george johnson quits as education minister and we step down from parliament he says he's torn between family loyalty and the national interest. also coming up 2 german men are joining for sexually assaulting and drifting more than 30 children prosecutors say it's one of the most horrific cases of child abuse they've ever seen critics are asking how they were allowed to get away with it for
4:01 pm
so long. and then if not abandoned. and i feel we have a diet that only the cinema which we're dying is because so much progress of a culture of ours and art. many of yemen's cultural institutions have been destroyed by the country's ongoing war but our reporting with young people there who are determined to keep absolutely despite the conflict last. i don't welcome but that shima britain's bitter briggs said battle has cost prime minister bars johnson another major loss his own brother who is the latest conservative m.p. to stand down george johnson announced he would criticize post as education minister and leave parliament. he said he was torn between family loyalty and the
4:02 pm
interests of the nation he opposed britain leaving the european union during the 2016 referendum campaign. george johnson's departure follows days of parliamentary upheaval on wednesday night lawmakers rejected the prime minister's core for a snap election they also passed a bill to prevent the u.k. leaving e.u. without a deal. deja vu scaurus one dollar a visit joins me now from london barbara boris johnson has already suffered a record number of defeats since becoming prime minister now his own brother has resigned how big a setback is this for him. now this really cuts close to the bone of course because it's within the own family everybody had always thought it remarkable that brother joe who's the younger brother of forrest johnson and a mild mannered remain are quite a contrast to his bullish and boisterous older brother that he could sort of fit to
4:03 pm
with the party line for so long but now he has sort of stepping down and saying i can do this anymore i'm not going to be a tory politician anymore as shows and that's what of service same people here who know him that he cannot couldn't do in the increasingly hardline course of boris johnson the prime minister that he doesn't want to sort of be involved in dragging britain out of the european union without deal just going for broke going for hard bricks it and so that explains the sort of resignation of joe johnson and yes of course it's a blow to boris johnson because it really breaks open the this track behind the scenes and also the change within the tory party because he's not the only one going it caroline stillman as she was the chairman of the tory party a long serving member has said she would also step down and not be available for
4:04 pm
politic of jobs anymore because she does not like the way the party is going and bob boris johnson once a vote again on monday on new elections last 1900 to get this through so what does he want to change that will get him this vote on monday. that is everybody's guess because he had one defeat yesterday because he doesn't have a 2 thirds majority he can try this again on monday hoping that the opposition might crack and after the anti no deal that law has passed which is going to be over the weekend they would be mollified and say ok we'll go ahead it was election spot that is anything but certain so there is a 2nd way to go and ask for is simple change in law and to do this with a simple majority in parliament but he doesn't even have that as we have seen last night and the tory party is now so split and the rebels on his own side are so
4:05 pm
angry that they might even define him then so the last ruse left for boris johnson then is to sort of have a no confidence vote against himself that sounds interesting and nobody really you know knows how that is going to pan out if play out bought his goal is under all circumstances to force elections in october before the bracks a date because he's things that he could then win them for sure. and you said barbara we have to see how that pans out barbara visible in london thank you very much. judge in germany has called to child sex abuse as monstrous and despicable she then handed them jail terms for sexually assaulting more than 30 children over a period of almost 20 years some of the victims were toddlers the men carried out the attacks at a campsite in the town of death wild in northwestern germany police being severely criticised for failing to intervene. over years these 2 men under e.s.b.
4:06 pm
and mariel as sexually abused more than 30 children at a campsite in north west germany among the victims and 8 year old foster child today the 2 men were sentenced to 13 and 12 years in prison the court convicted under 3 of 223 counts of sexual abuse. we need to do is not in this case when they also expect with this verdict. it was only in october last year that one of the girls' mothers reported the crimes to the police 2 months later the 56 year old child molester who abused the children at this campsite in lucia was arrested later his accomplice mary s. was also detained both confessed to the crimes from the start of the trial. the case cost outrage in germany and threw up many questions among them how andrea's wee was allowed to foster a child when he was unemployed and living on
4:07 pm
a campsite and despite the fact that he had been under suspicion many times over the years the police are also facing mounting pressure after a suitcase of d.v.d.'s with child abuse images disappeared after it had been seized it is a. verdict should not mean that the whole story is now all over and done with yes we have got to they did 2 principal accused the 2 main perpetrators who did this to the children themselves in the background there are people who could have helped save many children from these experiences one can even though the 2 men have been jailed for 12 and 13 years the court labor them both dangerous offenders meenie they can be held indefinitely past their sentences. and i'm joined now by reporter tessa. who's been following the story for us a welcome. to set out the details of this case are quite horrifying and what is likely to be the reaction to this verdict in the fact that these children some of
4:08 pm
them as young as 4 were being raped and abused for almost 2 decades yes one of the 1st reaction was definitely it or happen very quickly now i mean after all of these errors that were detected leading up to the trial we now have to keep in mind that it's only been 9 months that the main suspect was arrested and now the trial only took 10 weeks which is very little for german standards so it will happen very quickly and this shows of just how most importance this trial was not only to the judges but also to the german public watching this trial all along and we can really resume as one of the worst child trials and now it has finally come to an end now given the gravity of the crimes why won't these 2 men given the full fare. 15 years jail terms which is what is permitted under german law i mean the public prosecutor persecutors they demanded just about what they finally got to the 12 and
4:09 pm
13 years but what definitely played a decisive role was the confessions i was there the 1st day and already on that 1st day we had a confessions made by the 2 alleged abusers and that was very important to the judges because they didn't want the children to be needing to come into the courtroom facing their views as one more time because they would have to serve as witnesses that were spared from them and probably decrease the sentence in the end but what we have to keep in mind is that there is still something which is called preventive detention which is something very german phenomenon which is going to be applied right after their sentence which means probably until the end of their lives they will not step out of prison and this is you would know this was one of the most shocking aspects of this case was that they were grave mistakes made during the investigation by authorities at multiple levels was this addressed by
4:10 pm
the court today no that wasn't addressed at all but that was made clear right from the start this trial was only covering the days of the alleged suspects and now convicted and what they set though is that a separate investigative committee was set up this is already working on the mistakes that have been made by the police by you've been a zation run by the state and they really have understood that something like this cannot happen again and what they want now and what we can see is that on a german level germany what level really the focus has changed and child abuse crimes are really put under special scrutiny now because another child abuse like this would really be a catastrophe in germany right douglas it is a kind of want to thank you very much for that yeah thank. let me now bring york to deal with some of the stories making news around the world at least 10 people have
4:11 pm

4:12 pm
a time of war our correspondent needs people in yemen working to sustain cultural life while civil conflict reaches around there. but 1st to the u.s. millions of people have been evacuated on the southeastern coast of the u.s. as hurricane dorian approaches the storm has weakened but still has dangerously high winds and is threatening to flood coastal areas in georgia and north and south carolina dorian meanwhile has left a trail of devastation the bahamas after lashing the islands for 3 days at least 20 people are dead and it's feared the death toll will rise. in the heart of the hurricane volunteer rescuers struggle to find what they're looking for but then dangling from the attic of a home life. trapped by the storm one by one a family emerges from the darkness.
4:13 pm
the more fortunate are already returning home to dorian's destruction the island family's house was flooded everything destroyed all they want a photograph of my wife. she said she turned off she said there were no not the front door she said one driver. this was the scene when the island's made their daring escape clutching their most prized possessions. paradise has been pulverized thousands of homes on abaco island torn apart boats tossed to ride the storm surge locals distraught. because when is everything is. no buying no stores. take at least 4 to
4:14 pm
5 years to complete only. in this you know everything is going to body. for those left behind putting the bahamas back together is expected to cost billions and the government says allies have promised to pay chain i spoke with president donald trump who has expressed the support of. the assistance of the united states of america further behind us and time. back at the island family home offers of help have been pouring into. this. great so many people. i truly hope. 23 people have offered so much. you know we're all wearing the same clothes that
4:15 pm
we escape. to. so it's really good to get support and know that early ninety's when fundamentalism started looking around there were warning 2015 people were dressed and they were clearly. it is not just because of lack of food that yemenis are dying people saw with their own way without access to contraceptives i don't like to get done what. and i feel we have to die. but i'm only at the cinema. but we're dying because cinematography of a culture of art. invaded for room for thinner and walk out if the seller must still existed i would not. have it for the. market. but these young people want to revive culture alive in yemen if
4:16 pm
they are rehearsing a play to be performed in public for the 1st time in more than 4 years in aden with basics like electricity hard to come by the theater is a way to vent. turn the power on from the other line. of help is it your hobby to make my life miserable what nonsense talk just. situation there are met believes that art is necessary to channel people's emotions about the difficulties in their lives but is it the right time to talk about art. or sport but that's not true because if everyone stopped doing what they have to do all sunk in the same situation real life expressed through art for artists in yemen it's a way to promote dialogue and ultimately peace in their country. and that's of for
4:17 pm
20 years funny for a child who's back from yemen and is with me funny now when we talk about a given it's usually about the conflict there so how common are stories that you wanted to share with us well it's very uncommon to see public performances but it's very common to feel the desire among people especially in the city at the harbor in term capital since the war broke out in 20 of 14 it's very common when you speak to young people and the majority of them is under 25 years old in aden but they say they don't want to just stay at home and basically wait for a better future and but you want to talk to each other and want a way of expressing of what's. going on in yemen is by going to a theatre play for example as we have seen in that report so it is very important but also in the context of in fact it's culture that brings about unity that's something that the people are very much convinced of that i've spoken to they say that yemen used to be a united country even though of course has been always differences between the north and the self but it. comes through its cultural heritage and if that's being
4:18 pm
destroyed as partially it is so instructs for example a lot of sites in the north in sabah for example have been destroyed if that has been through the destroyed by the limits are in place that there are no theaters no public performances as much as they were before the war and really the country is dying on many levels the game is in the midst of the worse because humanitarian crisis that is according to the united nations in the midst of all of this distress is that a space for culture for the people of yemen the spaces they are but the question is how do you perform for example the film director if you have seen her death yes or played director we have seen industry board he just told me today that he's going to perform for her so but you know wedding hall and he doesn't know how many people are actually going to attend because even though there's no official curfew in aden people feel inclined to sort of like have a self-imposed curfew when it comes to the evening when it becomes dark because you
4:19 pm
really do not know what challenges you encounter when you pass through different checkpoints and you do not know who is in charge so yes culture does exist but the question is whether people people can actually attend those cultural events and as i say yes that's very difficult simply because of the situation on the ground and how. he's responding to these creative cultural and religious initiatives that's a question of how do you define actually a local authority right now in aden because you have so many elements in play that are competing for their own power you have obviously decided that coalition officially supporting the yemeni government. or whatever is the last left of that yemeni government because as we all know most of it. in saudi arabia you have the separatists who want to have an own state they want to have a south of yemen you have jihadi. put not really amused of having culture performed in public so you have all these elements in place where you may think ok
4:20 pm
because of the chaos you can actually do whatever you want to but when it comes to performing a play that of course also is a way to criticize what's going on in a country and that criticism in between the lines can of course put you in danger but some of the artists you spoke to are hoping that you know their endeavors. can bring a bit of normalcy in the lives of people and maybe even contribute to bringing peace to yemen how do you see it i believe never brought about unity weapons and violence never brought about some sort of a dialogue it's about bringing people to a dialogue bring people to a table to talk to each other and if a play for thier to play if that is something that could not just distract people from doing things like radicalizing them selves or being bored and as a result of that i mean a lot of people in yemen are actually chewing khat afternoon because there's not much more to do if there's more on the ground that helps people to come together and to talk about what's going on the country i'm not saying there's going to be
4:21 pm
peace right away but at least these a dialogue on different grounds than a dialogue with weapons funny well said thank you very much for the insights from yemen. nigeria has the largest number of children in the world who are missing out on education officials say more than 10000000 children are not in school many of them are homeless living on the streets so how can they be brought back to the classroom our correspondent. discovered how dance is helping some kids to find focus they need to keep learning. when 11 year old dammy discovered dance she discovered happiness. when i'm down so it's makes me feel guilty for me it will feel special like i have to just the ones who are on the road to. be like the other kids in the dream qatar's dance group demi waltz moved on to she treats after her father
