tv The Day - News in Review Deutsche Welle February 5, 2018 11:02pm-11:30pm CET
the nuclear weapons it dials up. tonight germany's top spy says that the hermit kingdom has used its embassy here to bypass the sanctions and he warns that some of the transactions in the tools of terror may never be detected i burned off in berlin this is the day. to do obviously we can't guarantee that we've been able to detect and prevent every single sale on transaction thing that can come to the most minute if we were able to determine that north korea has been engaged in procurement activities with us from this is from our point of view the procurement was connected to the rocket and you can have a program from innocent of from the oil spill and we have to assume that north korea was able to acquire what it needed by using shadow by the shadow companies which they carried out the transactions here in germany he's going to atlanta in
the book. also coming up twenty eight years two months and twenty seven days that's how long the berlin wall stood and that's how long it's been since it fell tonight remembering how it all began the history from down below. at least seventy five tunnels the one in berlin my heart was pounding like mad i thought the tunnel would be discovered. we begin the day with one of the weakest links in the world's most severe sanctions against north korea and it's just over four kilometers from where i am sitting the north korean embassy here in berlin now the head of germany's intelligence agency hans-georg mohsen says that north korea has used the embassy to illegally purchase components which could be used to manufacture missiles and nuclear weapons and he
adds there is no guarantee that his agents can catch every illegitimate sale many of the goods are labeled dual use civilian and military and never get the tech to smoke and mirrors in the trade of the tools of terror. north korea's push to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles has made rapid advances in. pyongyang has tested a series of nuclear warheads and last year it successfully tested ballistic missiles that could in theory reach the u.s. mainland and it's made these strides despite strict international bans on selling technology to north korea now german officials say north korea has used its embassy in berlin to flout sanctions. in the past we've determined that it was a base for exposition activities that in our view serve the missile program and also in part the nuclear program. that north korea runs such
operations is nothing new in december australian authorities arrested a man suspected of trying to purchase components used in missile technology for pyongyang. and in two thousand and eleven ukraine's intelligence service cut north korean agents seeking missile technology but the hurdlers gotten through despite enforcement efforts when south korea recovered to spend north korean missile from the sea they found components from countries around the world evidence that young young has learned how to sidestep un sanctions. oh the claim just incomers at the north korea but he was first reported by investigative reporter klaus share he joins us tonight from close it's good to have you on the show tell us how were you able to break this story why did wasn't planned like that it took place in other countries where we were filming we had an interview with a formal official an investigator in the u.n.
sanctions committee overlooking north korea he was there until two thousand and sixteen and one of his reports that they were giving to the security council in one of the footnotes among others was mentioned the german embassy as a place where such activities were going on so the next the point we'd made was with the head of the german intelligence and then that was when he actually confirmed yes well me so that proves it always pays to read the fine print in reports very wise there have you tried to get reaction from the north korean embassy are they talking about this at all. well let me tell you this i was there a year ago and i was applying for a visa to ask my questions about the missile program in pyongyang and they said then that i would be given an answer within three weeks i'm still waiting for that answer so that much about them talking to us. maybe perhaps the you know time is different in the north korean calendar what about the embassy and its ability to
carry out these illegal transactions in the first place i mean how is it able to do that is it exceptionally skilled at this covert commerce or is this a case of germany's intelligence service not being vigilant enough. when i have to say that we only talk about efforts or failed attempts to acquire things like that about long lines of middleman of shadow companies when the german officials get hints that something like that is going on that they have suspicion suspicious activities they they interfere they stop it but they might not get everything we talk about do it use items usually those that can high tech items that can be used in civil life and for military purposes for example the one thing they they told us was a so-called multi gas money tour you use it to control traffic pollutions in civic
life but also when you produce a chemical weapon you need it to control poisonous gas emissions. and close what has happened since this story broke i can imagine many people are asking themselves well is the north korean embassy in berlin is it still woven. well it's still a of course but we learned that. actually a three years ago four years ago one of the diplomats now there are still four i guess but they used to be more but one of the diplomats had to leave the country because of suspicious behavior and we also learned that the last cases that the german intelligence officials were after were in two thousand and sixteen and seventeen both seventeen both related to the missile program and a chemical possible chemical weapons program and what about the head of domestic intelligence here in germany mr hans-georg mohsen he is warning that he cannot
guarantee a complete stop to north korea's illegal purchases why can't he offer that guarantee. why how could he he cannot guarantee for the future that they will find everything it's as i said it's a long chain it's happening in the darkness and we talk about dual use so sometimes they have to prove it at least even before court what they found and they need advice they need hints from the industry from traders who say well this is one of the the dual use items on the list and we have a request from some trade or a middleman that we haven't had before they have to inform the intelligence people as well if that doesn't happen they might not see everything we also want to let our viewers know your report doesn't only pertain to germany i mean this isn't just a german story other countries have also proved able to prevent pyongyang from for
curing items to build weapons right. yes we did this official from the united nations he told us about a pot that the south korean navy actually fished out of the ocean and he said we had items from more than a dozen of items coming from countries like not only china and russia but also from switzerland from the u.s. from the u.k. and those were all countries with which it export controls though they will all trick they have all defeated as he said that. close there are tonight's telling us about how he was able to break the story and tell the world about what's really going on inside the north korea embassy here in berlin klaus thank you very much we appreciate your time thank you. well you can each take thirty five hundred dollars and a free plane ticket to leave or face arrest and prison time that is the choice
israel is offering some thirty eight thousand african migrants the first deportation notices went out today giving the migrants two months to leave the country most of them are from sudan and eritrea despite the deportation notice hundred stood in line outside the immigration authority offices on sunday seeking to renew their visas of the fate of these migrants have created a moral dilemma many see israel's existence today as the answer to centuries of persecution against jews around the world how could israelis turn away others seeking refuge they ask for the israeli government claims that the migrants are infiltrators seeking jobs not a sign w.'s told you craver has this report. to keep this home country every twenty or more than twelve years ago and sought asylum in israel now
his future is once again uncertain because he's facing possible death partition the stores are always very sensitive especially for me personally in the for my community the people i love because. of like deportation an unlimited proof of time in imprisonment so very tough here at the eritrean community center the new government policy is on everyone's mind their choice go to prison or take a free plane ticket a payment of almost three thousand euros and leave the country. over the past years israel has recognized only ten people as refugees to keep never received a response to his aside a request. sometimes we want to require some time infant or sometimes consular everything with their most a person. really and i love my country because of.
so i know i'm a refuge that's why you came here and was there to ask for a prediction between two thousand and six and two thousand and twelve about thirty eight thousand asylum seekers from every trailer and sudan arrived in israel by the egyptian sinai peninsula then that was closed by a border fence ever since there has been a fierce public debate in israel about the asylum seekers speight human rights activists warn their safety cannot be guaranteed if they are deported we're talking about less than forty thousand people immigrants asylum seekers in israel who seek asylum in a land of eight million people this is less than half a percent of the israeli population so our first question to the government is why can't israel absorb those people give them shelter or allow them to build their lives here this is so much less than other countries have to deal with many asylum
seekers ahead here in a detention center in the desert in the cells of israel. this has settled in the southern neighborhoods of tel aviv a poor area of the city why some residents support the migrants many plame them for advise in crime and want them to leave. call these are foreigners infiltrators it is impossible to live like this all our infrastructure collapsed the sewage system education welfare everything all the budget is going to what's that like if you will feel like those is very does he want to help them right rabbis from the diplomats holocaust survivors and pilots are calling on the government to stop the deputation plans the jewish state we are obliged to deal with the refugees and with asylum seekers as we would have liked the european countries and the usa at the time to have treated jewish refugees who tried
to save there to save those souls running away from persecution and from extermination chiquita's more it about his safety of his deported to a third country he says a short prayer at the door of a small chapel he wants to stay positive but given the choice to keith says he would rather go to prison than be said to another country. the berlin wall stood for more than twenty years but today marks a turning point the wall has now been down longer than it was up in one thousand nine hundred sixty one overnight berlin found itself physically divided the wall encircled west berlin making it into an island basically that was within you see right there east germany now east berliners hoping to flee to the west they went through many ups and downs literally not far from our studios here at the w.
near what's known as mower park the entrance to an underground escape tunnel was recently rediscovered it's a reminder of the links that some people went to just be able to cross the border the fun even char has more above and underground. the streets of berlin are steeped in history from the second world war to the cold war one of the best places to get a sense of the cold war is right here in berlin although many important this place . and all. things. clearly indicate where the brewery war was. over there. stories of germans who try to make it across this war. some try to escape before the wall was even finished they said connick
picture shows a young soldier from east berlin who jumped over a barbed wire fence in nine hundred sixty one. some tried to flee to the west above ground many hundreds try to escape underground at least seventy five tunnels were dug beneath the wall in berlin most of them from the west to help friends and relatives trapped in the east. car holds up full told us how he tried to help east germans to freedom he showed us the place where he started digging a tunnel today it's a construction site the goal back then to reach that house on the other side in the east about eighteen meters away. very hard work you could only progress one to one and a half meters per day i remember being completely alone in the tunnel for a few days hearing the tram rumbling above me my heart was pounding like i was really scared i thought the tunnel would be discovered it was well known that security forces in the east could open up
a tunnel somewhere and just start shooting inside. the wall from the beginning an activist in one thousand nine hundred sixty three he teamed up with these five men to dig the tunnel they worked on it for four months almost six decades. he's the archaeologist who recently discovered the tunnel entrance this dark patch of earth. to meet the man who actually built this tunnel was a special moment for me we spoke for several hours when we first met it's like a piece of puzzle that you put together we have the excavation the findings but now also the actual exchange with a living source that's an important element of the tunnel was almost complete when the east germany secret police found out about it and shut it down but it wasn't all for nothing. the result was in vain yes but
the fact that we try to bring people to freedom and to give them hope that is never in vain that's always good regardless how it ends. for we felt committed to help those who were not free and couldn't raise their voice was diminished it's been almost three decades since the brawling war came down and discoveries like a secret tunnel entrance show that history in berlin remains very much alive and relevant as long as the stories are told. the eagles have landed a super bowl title the philadelphia eagles have finally shared their underdog status to win their first ever super bowl they set the patriots packing beating that we're going patriots forty one to thirty three there was high emotion in philly as thousands of fans celebrated in the center of the city of brotherly love . the wait is over five
thousand. philadelphia finally has a super bowl after years in the shadows eagles fans are rightly making the most of the historic victory over the new england patriots. they may have been the underdogs but the eagles went on the offensive right from the start. they have bowled an adventurous game plan led by quarterback nick foles paid off tom brady and the patriots were overwhelmed the eagles sealing a forty one thirty three victory you know being a part of this be interested to philadelphia and being fortunate enough to come back and be a part of this team to be a piece of this puzzle. i mean it's been a long time coming and you know i know there's going to be a lot of celebrating tonight. on the streets of philadelphia there was bailey brooms a braves jubilant fans went wild celebrating into the early hours of the morning.
i. was just amazing just amazing at the fact that that game was the best super bowl maybe ever face yes but that wasn't cherry and. there was an ugly side to the elation too however. lucien vandalism somewhat marring but joyous celebrations. for the most part fans were well behind. this night will stay tuned in their memories for a long time. i know somebody who stayed up late to watch the game while thought he's sitting right here with this march fourth as mark meadows you know you're burning the midnight oil last night i was in day and it was worth it because it was a fantastic game i got to say i mean what was so fantastic about it i mean we've got the eagles winning did they win because or was philadelphia celebrating because
of the win or was it celebrating because of the way philadelphia won the game a bit of both i mean obviously the first ever super bowl title is a massive thing they had when the old and if n.f.l. championship before it became known as the super bowl but nowadays we'll talk about they needed to get this monkey up the back and they did it but yes it was the man who had the victory that made it so impressive this is the new england paid. it's the great dynasty of american football that's told brady well the most famous sportsman in the world and yet they say they deserved to win. they did something the other teams have managed to in recent times in last year's super bowl the focus were ahead they were going to win brady in the pages the storm back the exactly the same thing happened against the jaguars in the a.f.c. . final the kind of seven final two weeks ago and this time it happened again you know the liberal head then brady came back and the pats are going to win but no the eagles that know we're good enough we're having a great season we're going to win this and they did it and they stripped the ball out of tom brady's hands and made him look a bit stupid not many people do that that's what i mean i think i think right after
the game you could see there was a reality check taking place there in tom brady's face we've seen seems incredible emotion in philly both good and bad yeah i mean the fans went a little too wild let's say you can understand that given is the super bowl but you know people could have got injured people climbing on the roof the roof collapsed people going to go really hurt they were overturning a few fires but the reason why they reacted so much like that is because this is a big thing philadelphia as a city it's not just about the eagles basically now philly along with boston and they new york and chicago the only u.s. cities to have won before major titles in the four big u.s. sports agree get your exams and so now philly is a bona fide a top sports city in the u.s. you know we've got the rocky steps everyone knows about the rockies that's in philadelphia but now they've won a super bowl so they've done a lot about justin timberlake briefly he was the star have time show but he was also at the center of controversy was really yeah i mean
a felt he had to pay tribute to prince given the prince was from minneapolis and that's where the game was taking place prince had said before his death that he wouldn't ever want to be part of a show after his death as a hologram or whatever else you know and people close to prince told justin timberlake this so what they came up with a sort of a shadow in the shape of prince it's sort of work to look nice. people are still unhappy and felt that's not what friends wanted also the choice of song he decided to call the no diary feed now of the prince's past on was that a great idea and gender the show was not great either it was. as you can see. that list a generally let's talk about the other part of the show you know the super bowl is one of the biggest sports and t.v. events in the u.s. calendar every year viewership on sunday slipped to an eight year low but that had no impact at all on the t.v. commercials which have become an institution in their own right spots and sold for five million dollars for thirty seconds proof that the advertisers know that the
super bowl is a guarantee for a huge audience the t.v. commercials of the products being peddled off they have become part of the tradition on the day as well and this year is no different so it is time now to test one lucky contestants t.v. commercial knowledge on the spot and it like you man happens to be smart. as mark welcome to. your seven lucky seconds now here are the rules we're going to play a clip from an ad. which ran during the super bowl and then you're going to have seven seconds to collect your thoughts and to guess which product is being pushed off in the ad then when you hear the bell time is up give me an answer if you get two out of three right you'll be a winner are you ready to test your seven like you said ok. all right let's go to the first spot it's. the how far and marcello how far is mars where i am i thought
