stem the violence in libya that country has been an absolute turmoil since dictator moammar gadhafi was overthrown in 2000 and fighting is still raging despite the ceasefire agreed in germany last month. a top u.n. official at the munich security conference said the truce had been violated $150.00 times since then and she said efforts to cut the flow of weapons have been equally unsuccessful the arms embargo has become a joke and so it you know we are recently to step up here and. it is complicated because there are violations that are you know happening on land sea and air and that all needs to be monitored in libya fighters loyal to the internationally recognized government control only a small area around the capital tripoli most of the rest of the country is in the hands of the rebels
a month after germany hosted the libya conference in berlin its participants gathered around the table again this weekend in munich 30 nations including the united states russia and turkey germany's foreign minister condemned the fact that some of these states as well as others not present continue to supply weapons to the north african country. it is important that we create transparency and ensure that those who intend to continue breaking this weapons and bargo must expect to be identified because looking at europe's leaders and not speaking with one voice different e.u. governments even back opposing sides in the conflict that lack of common purpose was another of the conference's focal points but after it was over the conference chairman told d.w. that europe was slowly making progress what i thought was new and important here this year. is that the european union is beginning to debate.
how and how europe can really learn the language of power e.u. foreign ministers will be meeting in brussels to discuss efforts to improve the policing of the libyan arms embargo. ok let's focus more now on libya with chief political editor michelle who's been in munich for the conference today sheila let's talk about libya why has it emerged as a major topic at the security conference well basically because all the actors were that the beauty of the munich security conference 2 weeks ago we saw a major conference here on the in but then something kicks out in something called the process and that for the 1st time for all it all the interested actors on the ground in libya around one table the big fear is that there's a an all out proxy war them major actors involved just fronts lisa named the
european ones the united arab emirates egypt you name it and the problem is that everybody is pouring weapons into the region and general have to who was portrayed as having control of most of the country from now he's taking the weapons from whoever he can get them from ok no no we had a senior u.n. official stephanie williams they're characterizing the arms embargo you mentioned they're pouring in from everywhere the weapons as a as a joke what's behind that statement considering as you mention that all the players are there has i was at a press conference and she was very outspoken about this this there's been a resolution basically implementing a weapons of months that means it's international de facto even after all the interests of posse sat down and agreed that they would stick to this weapons of bagua nothing has really changed on the ground that's the big. album and the naming
and shaming hasn't worked so far so now everybody seems to be prepared to go a step further to at least find out which weapons are coming from where and where they are going to make the naming and shaming more effective we're still quite a step away from actual action being taken to stop these weapons from coming in and that's where we are now and that's where the europeans today when foreign ministers meet will hopefully decide on what action that would have to take right what are they going to be discussing we have the foreign ministers meeting on libyan brussels what's on the agenda for yes what clearly on the agenda is in what ways the europeans can at least get some transparency into the whole region bot and there's a big but particularly all strains are against using ships now we just heard that the weapons coming in and on sea and by air and that raises a lot of questions about how practical this is the big fear is the amongst the austrians that that could be
a back tool to reviving operations the fia which in the end was rescuing migrants from the mediterranean so you see these are all issues that are interconnected slow headway being done but it would be very embarrassing thier princeton at least have a small plan at the end of the day to day maybe they will at the end of the day michele thanks very much for that well rio's world famous carnival festivities are just a week away now and the spectacular somber parade is getting ready to hit the streets each year scores of the city's down schools compete to be carnival champion but this year the preparations are being overshadowed by a dispute. it's dress rehearsal for de boer a flag bearer of the monk year a somber school. one week before she and her troop by for the title at the rio carnival. era is brazil's most famous somebody school and the defending
champion but a bitter clash over monk era's theme this year is overshadowing preparations for the world famous parade. it centers around jesus christ a deliberate provocation by monk erez members. it's a very emotional topic because we're going to show different versions of jesus as whites and blacks as a man and a woman and indigenous. this is the neighborhood of monk a gang infested slum on a hill in rio at its foot the renowned somebody school. how might the story of jesus have gone had he grown up here perhaps as a black woman or someone else that's the explosive question the monkey or school will put on display during carnival while the dance troupe prepares in this complex out on the beach evangelical christians gather for a religious ceremony. many feel outraged by the somebody schools plan for them
jesus is white and untouchable. that jesus saved me he saved my life he means everything to me. conservative pastors have launched a petition against my garrus plan they want to prevent the sight of a black jesus in the parade. which we could out of the holy bible does not say that jesus grew up in a slum like man guera these people are degrading our bible anyway the carnival is the ruin of many people exposing them to drugs sex and murder cream. in december a brazilian t.v. comedy portraying jesus as a gay man sparked a violent backlash suspected religious fundamentalists threw mala tough cocktails into the producer's offices to bore a maid and her monkey era colleagues call the criticism absurd.
it's all nonsense the critics haven't even read our program. just ahead of their big performance the monkey arrows are undaunted. the business leaders snatching 20 two's in the history books now to find out more i'm joined by mark meadows from the deputies for good morning mark the bonus league title race is looking tight and now we have perennial champions byron munich putting out a real show in yes they did they came out of the blocks very quickly after watching the star in this film because the girls can fake and fast like to get actually one on saturday to put the pressure on by and by going back to the top of the table temporarily but by and return to the summit in style. wearing special should because it's carnival time in cologne but by and made the party go pretty flat quite quickly let's have a look at the highlights. kalu and followed their $51.00 capitulation to mend with
a 4 nil thrashing of freiburg win or lose they guaranteed goals and that was the case again against byron. unfortunately the ball went the way of the visitors in the 1st half robot live adult sequel to the scoring with this 23rd of the season one mill to be champions after just 3 minutes i 2 minutes later it was through kingsley commom. i don't speak with me turn to most of the lay off the smart finish things were getting embarrassing for cologne and more ways than one. there were just 12 minutes on the clock when byron put themselves out of sight. so she could now be free no. it was more of the same after the break could not break up his 2nd 66 minutes because the days when people jumped on national t.v.
for will. see how to dortmund colognes much harder to consolation strike for the holes she wrote scoring after 7 minutes. for one finished another high scoring thriller feature in cologne will coach mark is probably wouldn't mind a boring old mill sometime soon. byron go back on top with 16 goals in 5 games since the winter break there once again and almost for the title run. mark when i look at that ominous form there it looks like biron of shaking off the problems from earlier in the season oh yeah they're definitely in form i mean they've never actually scored 3 goals in the 1st 1012 minutes of an away as they could gain before so that shows how good they are at the moment i mean robert levin dusky is in great form that was his 23rd goal of the season he's actually on course
for breaking do those record of 40 goals in abundance they can say is an absolutely insane everyone's in form thomas muller is in great form they've just really really settled down and i mean i think no one's going to stop me from honest but you never know you never know you're never going to be the outside chance from leipzig maybe or something like that you know what it sounds like from what i just heard there that that barnes gamble on making on safe like the head coach is paying off yeah totally i mean if we rewind to november when nico kovacs was sacked things weren't right but hans if they could really study everything down get a really bad cold yesterday you couldn't actually do the post match press comments but he clearly got his message across to the players ahead of the game i mean if you have a look at the. table we can actually see how tight it is because it's not done yet we have to say that i mean they're only a point ahead of leipzig and then you've got dortmund and lab back 3 points for the back finally got to go to don't mind in april they can drop points there and the key thing is gladbach i've actually got a game in hand so it's very rare that it's that tight in the top 4 in the
bundesliga so some interesting games coming up certainly ok so this is a fairly easy run of games coming up well by an extent of got part of on friday who the bottom team so that should be a simple one but then they've got chelsea in the champions league the week after and that's a completely different mindset ok we'll see if that mindset does what it does and how it plays out mark thanks so much for coming in today and staying with football the portuguese football club the toria have launched an investigation after porto player was america was racially abused by fans at a league match but it was so incensed he tried to substitute himself but his team mates physically stop them from leaving the field actions which have been condemned by anti-racism campaigners molly ford said supporters who shouted racist abuse and threw a seat onto the pitch were idiots who also criticised the referee for showing him a yellow card for his protests. why have you ever heard of the term
creepy cute well if you haven't we have an example an artist in singapore is putting a dark twist on some familiar foods but what you see behind me is just an appetizer . you think it's canned food but look closer and you'll change your mind tiny baby hearts tiny baby parts clay creations that are anything but cute. i think it has always been about that combination of things that people find that traditionally typically cute but then having a. twist to it. calls herself an accidental sculptor. she has no studio and big her pieces in the family and then. she's gained quite a following on instagram. some with strong emotional reactions to her work.
there was a girl that social media thing that of my actually helped because she recently went through an abortion which was going through a very difficult time. and in japan where creepy cute is trending in pop culture fans flocked to limbs recent tokyo exhibition called modern panic the training in. this work is free from stereotypes and i think it's you know it gives us a new perspective. which is different from what we see usually. i thought this work conveys a message that you can express something freely. for art fans sick of the saccharin and sweet limb offers up a serving of the confronting and grotesque.
i'm not laughing at the germans well i guess sometimes i am but not. then nothing with the tenant you bet you haven't think they've been for gemma culture yet you don't seem to take that as grandma down east coast it's all that they know i'm right joe join me to meet the devil to funkytown post. with him how to be suckers with the highest high you know if i had known that the boat would be small i never would have gone on a trip to cuba i would not have put myself and my parents so much danger to the bottom of the theme of the going to give us leave would. put that on the global d.g. to give them i had serious problems on a personal level and i was unable to live there much i'm going to.
