get my head is going to take a long process to what the aims are to discuss the so how close it is just in their political position no but of course and don'ts of the what is good instruct people to stop working on it but in terms of getting the premier fine it is going to be very difficult to program in c. per's this is a particular before that happens to so reporting from johannesburg thank you so much. all right i'm back here and germany's capital it was brought to a standstill today by this that you're about to see behind me a massive world war two bomb experts were able to defuse the bomb but the operation forced the a shutdown of a large part of the city center seven decades after the wars and germany still finds more than two thousand tons of unexploded wartime ordinances every year but this was the most significant on the supposal operation in the german capital in
8:06 pm
yours. yet. you form one of the members all on how you have an unusual sight on central berlin straits police urging residents to evacuate and offices going door to door to make sure buildings were cleared. the biggest evacuation in berlin in his came as bomb disposal experts moved in to diffuse an unexploded second world war bomb that had been on earth on a construction site inside the exclusion zone an army hospital part of the german intelligence agencies headquarters a ministry building embassies and a number of hotels in the city that likes to wake up late some were caught by surprise. we took a shot from denmark and we were not informed by hotels dot com that we were going
8:07 pm
to be created yet frustratingly. so you went very. together with the it out. for those with nowhere else to go emergency shelters were set up around the exclusion zone. but the biggest disruption perhaps came for the thousands of commuters travelling from one side of the city to the other. also located within the exclusion zone in central station went from buzzing travel hub to go station as it too was cleaning it ahead of the destination. but by around one thirty pm local time it was mission accomplished for the disposal tain as authorities announced the world war two bomb had been made safe. this is the site where the bomb was discovered and successfully disposed of and was findings like this are quite common in germany so common in fact that eight state
8:08 pm
has its own bomb disposal unit the size of this bomb and its proximity to the city center meant a widespread police action. bill in central station was reopened within an hour of the diffuser all allowing the city to get back to business as usual. i want to bring up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world. nurses and by the way have staged a protest in the capital there among sixteen thousand nurses sacked by the government this week for going on strike to demand higher pay the mass firing in turn has led to the shutdown of major public hospitals posing a test for zimbabwe's new government. leaders of the fifty three commonwealth countries have approved prince charles as their next head he replaces queen elizabeth the second who said it was her sincere wish for him to be given the role and continue the work her father began back in nineteen forty nine. and breaking
8:09 pm
news just coming in the d.j. and music producer known as a vici has been found dead in oman a twenty eight year old swede who was born tim burgling was a pioneer of the electronic dance movement is greatest hits included levels wake me up and he rather. sued us across the u.s. have walked out of class to mark the ninety's anniversary of the columbine school massacre while the protest comes after continued gun violence at american schools including the recent mass killing in the parklane florida gun control advocates have been have seen little change in the aftermath of school shooting sprees is something a new generation of activists is determined to change. their message couldn't be clearer. than just a handful of the tens of thousands of students to have done and to demand tougher
8:10 pm
gun controls from new york. to michigan. and even the white house they made their point basically we just want to see some type of preventative measures taken you know the change has been powered was school we can feel it in the school security measures we feel that the onus should not be on the school to take security measures to prevent their students from being killed in gunfire there should be some type of preventive measure taken some type of change it was not all chanting thirteen seconds of silence were held to remember the thirteen victims of the columbine school massacre they were killed nineteen years ago to the day when two students opened fire on their classmates their slaughter into a school shootings into the global consciousness two decades gone on thousands of deaths later many of america's students have seen enough. at our school our t. shirt was shot and killed at the beginning of the year so this is something that we
8:11 pm
take very personally and we feel it need to advocate it for us the people. organizers say teenagers for more than two thousand schools took part in the walkout the latest wave and a nationwide effort to end the killing it. was a washington correspondent claire richardson is one of the protests in the u.s. capital clara what was the turnout like today. hailo we saw a couple hundred people here today which really pales in comparison to the kind of turnout that we've seen in the past from these national demonstrations remember this was the third nationwide effort to really draw attention to the issue of students demanding more gun control we saw the march for our lives protest in march and another national school walkout also earlier in march and those really drew much larger crowds than what we saw today now that being said it is an effort for people to walk out of their classrooms the people who made it out here to the u.s.
8:12 pm
capitol where just a small subsection however like i said it was not such a strong showing right so what does that mean does that mean that the movement is running out of steam. certainly the national attention seems to be starting to shift away from this issue but not necessarily joe i don't think it necessarily means that the movement has run out of steam the real test is going to come in november's midterm elections to see whether these students can actually translate their anger into votes whether they can make it to the polls and send the message that they say they're going to lawmakers that they won't vote for a candidate that takes money from a gun lobbyist or that does not vote in favor of what they call commonsense gun legislation and also clear as you know of course today is the anniversary of the columbine high school shooting has it taken on a special significance this year. that's right it's the nineteenth anniversary today and they've really tried to tie this date to the movement that's
8:13 pm
taken shape since the mass shooting at a park in florida high school they're saying a lot of these kids are not even old enough to remember columbine which at the time was the largest school shooting in the united states of course that's since become much more of the normal twelve people in a teacher were killed in columbine at the time and so these students who are thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen years old were not even around then they're saying that they're really upset with the fact that there haven't been big changes since columbine and even since this protest movement really began after parkland they've had fairly limited success at least on the national level it does not seem like congress hasn't really heard them yet there have been a minor minor reform passed safety measures but nothing in terms of serious gun control at the state level they've been a bit more lucky the states of florida and illinois have passed measures that have increased the age at which someone can buy a gun but overall it's been a rather
8:14 pm
a success all right claire richardson that reporting from washington d.c. thank you. facebook is rolling out changes this weekend to help protect private data users in europe are the first to see the new settings and part of the goal is complying with tougher laws on privacy that go into effect next month facebook says it will ultimately offer the same protections everywhere but the companies are already facing questions about how serious it is on that count and every on call nasa is of course across this story for you and for us big changes coming up for users here in europe as facebook prompt you to review your settings yet i feel so left out and other members of the social media team have seen these notifications of this is basically facebook getting an early start on the use general data protection regulation or g.d.p. are you'll be hearing those four letters a lot to coming up it's going to starting may twenty fifth so this is kind of a preview of what you can say expect if you were
8:15 pm
a facebook user even though if you're not in europe take a look at some of these new privacy controls that are being rolled out here either users can actually now opt in to using facial recognition technology it had been banned here since two thousand and twelve you can limit the use of political religious or relationship information that you might have shared you can also say you don't want facebook to use information from partner websites when targeting it's ads for you and there are some new features specifically for minors as well and that requires parental consent for data collection there's a few others of course but those are the basics these are the ones to look out for right and they've already come under fire this is facebook of course under fire of it. so it turns out that facebook really isn't giving its users as much protection under the g.d.p. our as we thought they would so for example the g.d.p. or prohibits companies from collecting sensitive information about you without your consent and here's how facebook is dealing with that and this is from these notifications you're given just two choices here in terms of collecting this
8:16 pm
information like your ethnicity or your religion either you can sense and you let the company gather it all. or you have to completely delete it from your profile so there's nothing in between that's allows you to say hey i'm a catholic but tell facebook not to gather that information it's even worse later when it comes to privacy controls for minors and here's how facebook is dealing with that it's not so good under the g.d.p. our users younger than sixteen they need consent from parent or guardian for companies to gather data facebook's system for this is really bad it turns out a teen user can simply select any facebook friend or enter right there where we circled any email address as their guardian so they can easily get around this control they can put their friends e-mail address there doesn't have to be the parent there's no way to check that from facebook ok so that's not really his it's and there were forces which have raised a fresh concerns again about how facebook is handling its new privacy features tell us more about that well we had heard from mark zuckerberg last week he told
8:17 pm
congress that he'd be giving all facebook users around the globe these same privacy protections it looks like he might be walking that back and here's of how we know there's a new change that could be happening with facebook users currently if you're outside of the of the u.s. or canada then your government here in ireland that's where your privacy restrictions are governed but now they're taking all of these countries and they're putting it into california so these users about one point five billion people you see them all highlighted in orange they would have had these legal protections under the g.d.p. g.d.p. are now they no longer will facebook says they'll still give them the same protection but the legal requirement is no longer there are chrome has one hundred i have a feeling we're going to be talking a lot about oh. thank you so much to have a great weekend. all right and here in germany well actually here in germany in washington because germany is lobbying for europe in washington and how it has all
8:18 pm
the details. they left thank you very much for the french economy minister has a lashed out at washington saying it's true. aid war with china is made and pointless as he refuses to be drawn into the dispute he argues europe should be permanently exempt from steel tariffs well germany's vice chancellor shorts says he is optimistic that the european union will be granted an exemption now he made those comments off for a meeting with vice president mike pence the e.u.'s temporary exemption to tariffs on steel and other metals expires on the first of may german chancellor angela merkel will travel to washington next week's you personally make the case for an exemption and we've been told schultz is meeting yesterday was delayed leaving him to stroll around along the fence in front of the white house for an hour but let's get more facts now with our washington correspondent cost and phone naaman he's in front of the international monetary fund that will be talking about those i.m.f.
8:19 pm
pronouncements in a short while but first cost it does seem that germany may be let off the hook in this trade dispute between the u.s. and china for now at least we are still waiting a concrete solution what are you hearing that. well we're hearing that it's still difficult yes they are all off scholtz the german finance minister and vice chancellor said he was optimistic that a solution could be found that there would be a permanent exemption for the europeans from those tariffs today he sounded a bit more cautious again saying he didn't know if that would happen by the time the temporary exceptions run out at the end of april so we don't know simply what's going on talks on the way you mentioned the chancellor she would come to washington next week also french president mccrum will be here next week and what the europeans tried to point out all the time is this is an issue where europe is
8:20 pm
united of course because trade is the affair of the e.u. and they make this point to the american counterparts and all of shoals told us today he had the impression that his american counterparts were understanding that this was the case now at the i.m.f. chief christine that god has been speaking she's pointed to strong global growth that she has warned of course that trade tensions could hurt the global economy in the long ten all the u.s. and china hating her warning to you think. i'm not so sure and they might be listening to what she has to say for now it doesn't appear like they are following her by is neither side seems to be ready to back down at this point so it's completely unclear whether this conflict can be resolved. or i washington correspondent coston phenomena at the
8:21 pm
international monetary fund for us thank you. here in germany police are reported to be holding porsches head of power train development on or amman that is according to sources speaking to the reuters news agency they say that you can as arrest is related to inquiries into admissions manipulation and that he's considered a flight risk well can i was the man in charge of pushes engine division when the diesel gate scandal broke in twenty fifty the rest follow thursday's raid of several properties linked to three executives at the first falcon subsidiary of financial correspondent daniel cool is tracking the story. we're hearing that the man a child was on the way to work when he received a call from a family member that his home was being raided by police authorities apparently then cannot turned around race told but his sudden change in destination made investigators think that he was attempting to flee thereby prompting them to take
8:22 pm
him into custody but he's not the only one in the focus off prosecutors at the moment also it seems to be the case that the head of the development department mikhail steiner who's also a porsche management board member so with even a higher position is facing tough questions from authorities at the moment the company has only say to two employees in an e-mail that they will try to clear up the facts of the case as soon as possible it's going to be really interesting to see what portia is going to do about the case and about this employee we have to remember the case of the vox fire. in miniature all of a shrimp he was put on trial in front of a court in the united states and was then even sentenced to seven years in prison after he was sentenced works wagner also fired him so we have to see if what is going to happen now with cana or mco dyna if they will be able to continue their work at the carmaker or if porsche maybe will fire them as well. daniel cope in frankfurt now to a u.s.
8:23 pm
regulators to find the bank wells fargo one billion dollars for mortgage an auto loan violations it is the toughest penalty against a wall street bank during the trumpet administration last year wells fargo admitted charging over half a million clients for car insurance they didn't meet and force the customers to pay fees for mortgage delays which were the bank's fault. meanwhile deutsche bank is making headlines again for all the wrong reasons this time they made an accidental chance which you might say happens to the best of us spots i'm pretty sure that you've never accidentally transferred this kind of cash into the wrong account we're talking twenty eight billion euros ouch well to their credit the bank realized their mistake after a few minutes and no harm was done but of course the incident throwing the spotlight on the banks risk and control processes and it's creaking much criticized i t system so high time you might say for more than just a repute. all right. now in
8:24 pm
a changing of the guard at one of the walls most popular football clubs. and we've got that major soccer news for you everybody's talking about it from the english premier league arsenal manager arsene wenger will be leaving the club at the end of the season and our very own mark meadows from the resource is here with me is this a bolt out of the blue it is slightly yes he's been there twenty two years so it's a long time and actually quite a lot of the fans were a bit frustrated because of not an english league title since two thousand and four so there's been a kind of out grey for quite a few seasons so in that way it's not a surprise but the timing is maybe a surprise we expected the announcement the end of the season they've suddenly come out with it today it might be to do with the success actually i think the real reason of the do it now is to give the players a bit of a jolt and say hey let the guy go out in style go and win
8:25 pm
a trophy for him in the last few weeks and the europa league is a trophy they really want to win no pressure there what legacy whatever legacy is he leaving behind oh massively i mean look at the stats first of all three premier league titles the last one of those in two thousand and four it was the invincible season they went the whole season unbeaten in the premier league no premier league manager has done that before or since they won three probably titles in total seven f.a. cups research is the final in two thousand and six but his real legacy is how we revolutionized the game when he came in he looked at the diets you know the before matches bad idea there's some great anecdotes sol campbell the defender once told how things are told them all have to still. so the sugar granules will be completely dissolved it was that obsessive and so the football as well i mean it completely changed how often i play it's great second football lots of goals very very different to how it was and what are some of the reactions that you've been seeing yeah i mean ex play is both to play for him and against him i said look this
8:26 pm
guy is a great we should really really laud and then go for what he has achieved and also some premier league managers have chimed in we can have a listen listen now. you always develop teams brought always fantastic players and . the dominating guy mid ninety's maybe early two thousand when he was really winning pretty much everything played wonderful football so i i admired his work always it was always been since i'm in england it's a bit different because now we have to challenge them of course but from from germany he was always it was always a big big role model in the home i respect who has put the course he has done so premier league is with the premier league right now think a huge personality like arson not only for the premier league is the premier league things would he have he has done. his vision a lot of respect for the poor. wow some big big shoes to fill mark
8:27 pm
so who is being lined up as a potential successor thomas talk is top of the betting at the moment the former you don't mind manager i'm not so sure that's likely because i think he may have got a deal with the man already so we'll see how that pans out outside bet your human urge every coach if it goes out on a high with germany or on a low but he has actually got a contract still with journey beyond the world cup he's not the sort of guy who would would leave a job like that i think color watch a lot in peace free obviously left by munich this season but given he left by munich in a bit of a messy situation maybe a great little end to his c.v. there so it's a tough one x. players like tyrian re perhaps past vieira not got the managerial experience of those of the guys so it's wide open to be honest really feel this wide open i want to start doing see hoops well succeed the great thing or thank you so very much
8:28 pm

8:32 pm
relationships with russia that unable to creation of a trump russia conspiracy democrats say russia quote mounted a brazen attack on american democracy which started with a cyber attack on its computers trump has repeatedly denied any collusion between his campaign and russia. all right let's get you more on this developing story from the tom hamburger of the washington post a very good evening sir why has the d.n.c. decided to do this now special counsel robert rowe is still investigating allegations of collusion yes well there are there are a few reasons for perhaps the. the most obvious since this is a political party is they're doing it for a political advantage perhaps to to really that they didn't even. do some fundraising but it also has some legal and potentially historical advantages for
8:33 pm
the democrats it doesn't come without risk at where is the president for this mess and. yes so one of the echoes which i think the democrats are are not his needed to point to is that there was a similar some lawsuit filed in one thousand nine hundred seventy two against richard nixon by the democratic national committee willie a very similar suit alleging by elations of law. by the opposing political party. to take advantage of the democrats and to help win the election of richard nixon at the time when the suit was filed it was all laughed off by richard nixon's attorney general at the time john mitchell but eventually in nineteen seventy four the very day richard nixon resigned the presidency their republican party settled with the democratic. so have we heard it from the republican senator from the white house. we. had only not heard white house
8:34 pm
just yet we heard from attorneys for some of the aimed and the last of the allies. some of our russian nationals as well and they have referred to this wasin by the democratic party as a joke list of these they don't think that it they think that it lacks maritally by and and the risks of possibly undermining the credibility of i thought it best. well not a day and that brings me to mr comey because not a day has gone by this week without fired f.b.i. director james comey making a media appearance the memos now that he has kept his interactions with the president have been made public how compromised is the president's position today. this is. yet another in a long running battle over this. investigation of the trump campaign and the
8:35 pm
question it's still very much for us to know whether there was collusion with the russians and in the course of the president's reputation of course is caught in the crossfire as you mentioned how many internal memos memos that he wrote to him stop in effect to the pile after each of those encounters with president trump have now been released publicly and the republicans insisted that they be released the general impression at least is i'm hearing it is that the memos for comi and they tend to undergird the claims that he has already made in his book and in and in public appearances tom hamburger from the washington post thank you for joining us thank you. zero tolerance that's the title of a new series of documentaries focusing on asia the series will explore what is happening in the world's most populous continent as intolerance and religious fundamentalism are on the rise we start our journey and bangladesh

a renowned writer and eminent scientist the motive of the young perpetrator he saw his victim as an enemy of islam. while the full documentary the dawn of islamism will air tomorrow right here on d w and in the studio with me now is one of the filmmakers sundra peters meant thank you so much for being here sandra i mean the thing that stands out is of course is a coup some way which these bloggers have been have been killed in public and then you hear the advisor to the prime minister basically condoning what has happened i mean is that belief widespread in bangladesh i think yeah widespread is the belief that you shouldn't criticize. religion but of course people this way know not kill people this way but you know generally there is a belief in people that you should not touch upon religion critically it is a very conservative society when it comes to religion but i mean it's not happening
8:40 pm
on every day basis that liberals get killed but it is on the right there is a rise of intolerance and bangladesh and that's why we focus on this this killing of bloggers started in two thousand and thirteen and it hasn't stopped and yes it's single cases but if you piece that picture together i think it is a story worth to be told and this adviser he took his argument further by saying you know they have both extremists the bloggers and those who killed them and we have to bring them into the mainstream now what that mainstream is i think that is really under debate in the church right and it's not on the same moral moral level either you have the opportunity to visit which i thought was really interesting one of one of the madrid conservative mcgraw says which is the name for a muslim schools in the country. i mean how do they see it as we see it in the outside world this rise of intolerance so they perceive it in the same way that there is a rise of intolerance in their society they see it the other way around they also
8:41 pm

know her entire journey as an artist really is all about exploring her limits both physical and mental she also pioneered this idea of using her own body actually as the medium which can result in some pretty brutal scenarios when she in terms of when she's subjecting herself to either things like aggression or pain and even severe danger this is the first major retrospective of her work that's ever shown in europe it's already had stations in scandinavia before coming to bondi let's hear what she has to say about it herself. very easy to do things you like but you're not going anywhere or this you repeat the same pattern same system same everything but when you do things you're afraid of things you don't now that's a big possibility of real change. you can be shy person i cannot talk publicly somebody is walking behind me have to stop i was traumatized for any anything to do with. people watching me or i have to you know
8:52 pm
even in school not talk to the professor. credibly introvert and when i do use performance in the moment i start to feel superior and it was like transformation is not me anymore it's not me this little traumatized african marine or clearly other marine a came out which was fearless can do anything and and it was like wow this was the marine i i want to be there and he was the cleaner is such a long long history scums really from a childhood because my mother was obsessed with cleaning clean bananas for the turgid because they come from the hard way and they can add the bacteria and then a straw has said this this. sentence that follow me all my life bottom three so that means i can go to the bathroom and wash myself again and again and again so there's always this cleaning kind of session but later on i found that i have so

can what's so amazing about her is that she keeps pushing herself pushing herself to the very limit even though it might cause her pain physical and mental pain yes and it has a lot to do with i mean that she obviously confronts a lot of fear and has a lot to do with her upbringing she grew up in belgrade after world war two and both of her parents had been partisan fighters against the nazis and what became yugoslavia so she had she had a very strict upbringing initially raised by a really heavily religious grandmother a mother also physically abusive in her young life so painting is a way of really freeing herself from her own pain also from things like shame a lot of naked bodies in her work a lot of blood. she mentioned that energy of performance she finds or mazing one of her most famous works was in two thousand and ten in the moma in new york it's called the artist is present and that's where she simply sat in not chair across from other people and sort of let visitors sit across from her and stare and see

what came up and the results were surprising it's so simple but it's really intense because she was there for days and days on eight hours a day for three months and now i've got thirty seconds left unfortunately. she exuded so much peace when we saw her there tours the end is she finally at peace with herself i think i think it grows with every one of these projects i think there is definitely a sense of freedom she says that now she's at the state she so free she could just take off for anywhere in fifteen minutes to do. so we can we still have just prior to. this a level of detachment that on one hand is in possibly really an inspiration tony snow over the probably wrong it's about a level we're going to start in salute in bonn and there's more on the web site and we also have an arts twenty one special coming up this weekend on arena and i'm amazed until june a threat thank you so much karen everybody and we can do our before i let you go and remind you of our main headline this hour south african presidents are around
