8:01 pm
syria's notorious prison system due to reduced talks with a former inmate who is now speaking out about torture plus could there be a transatlantic trade war the european union says it's ready to react if the u.s. slaps tariffs on aluminum and steel imports on tuesday or find out what's at stake . with. iraq it's a pleasure to have you along everyone. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has gone on prime time television to present what he says is proof that iran has always lied about its nuclear weapons program he says iran lied before the accord signed with world powers to stop weapons development and is still lying. all right and we can take you now to jerusalem to our very own a tiny
8:02 pm
a criminal is standing by who has also been listening in to that and watching that televised presentation by the prime minister tony a very serious accusations against iran that were being made there earlier what does prime minister benjamin netanyahu want to achieve with this presentation of alleged evidence. well as you say very harsh and serious accusations against iran i mean has been basically saying that the iran nuclear deal is based on lies and here see here is the proof and he was standing there in front of a video screen and also showing some of the as he said over a hundred thousand documents that he said israeli intelligence has are tainted we don't know how they're tainted but they're saying that basically iran has his suit its nuclear weapons program secretly and that's why he things the world
8:03 pm
has been night and that was this message he wants he wanted to give tonight and that comes at a very crucial time because we all know that in two weeks' time u.s. president trump has to decide whether to decertify or to stay with the deed or to nix it as. the u.s. president said himself and that it's wise to crucial to have what must not netanyahu presented here because he said at the end of his long presentation here on prime time that he hopes that the u.s. knows what they're going to do with the deal and that execute excepting that the would be probably best for for everybody all right now tanya last night there were attacks in syria which the syrian government is blaming on israel their speculation is rife as to any connection between them and prime minister netanyahu presentation that we've just witnessed
8:04 pm
a short while ago. well first of all we don't know who was behind these attacks i mean the israeli military never comments on attacks that have been only speculations was behind that but of course if you've seen over the past couple of months we've seen more and more such attacks i mean israel has always said they will you know attack i mean they have their own red lines when it comes to syria when it comes to weapons transfers for example from iran's proxy hezbollah so it is assumed that they have in the past a couple of years many times attacked such transports but what is new in the past year or so is those attacks on alleged military bases in syria and that is what we've seen also over the past couple of months more and more such attacks and of course is by letter comments on that so we don't know for sure who is behind that right and tony to that point though there is a sense that there is
8:05 pm
a growing rivalry between israel and iran and it seems like tensions are increasing . yeah you could say that i mean at least after an attack that russia claims israel for that's on the base a t four military base near homs in syria and the russians that are also involved in syria have claimed actually the israeli military quote of course israeli military has also not commented on it ever since that israeli military has been on heightened alert waiting for some kind of to tell you a shim because at the time it rains where also at that base that's what's understood at least so there is a sense that tensions are heightened but also because of all of this together if you look at you know those attacks if you look at what's going to happen with the nuclear deal so there's
8:06 pm
a sense that tensions are quite high here in the region at the moment time kramer reporting from jerusalem thank you all right let's cross over to washington d.c. to do use a carson fund nominee who has also been watching that televised address carson was this a pitch for the to the attempt ministration to nix the deal come may twelfth. absolutely i think all those hardliners around president trump like john bolton his new national security adviser or his new secretary of state mike compay oh they all probably feel now that their skepticism towards the existing iran nuclear deal was justified president trump just a few minutes ago side himself in a press conference with the nigerian president bush kerry that what the israelis
8:07 pm
have brought forward shows that he was always one hundred percent right and so clearly i mean we have to wait and see how reliable the information that these re lease have presented really is and of course that really the main focus in the next few days and weeks but clearly does this gives donald trump the excuse or the justification to scrap the iran nuclear deal and of course that's bad news for america's european allies who have been trying hard and lobbying hard to. convince the americans to stay in the deal until they maybe can agree on something that's right and while i still have you of course newly installed the secretary of state in my pompei you know he also ratcheted up some anti iran rhetoric and offered support from both israel and saudi arabia in their standoff with iran what does that tell you. well i mean this has been building
8:08 pm
up for some time even before my companion or. took over his current role he was the director of the cia before but clearly don't the trump has decided or decided some time ago that he wanted a new approach towards the situation in the middle east a more confrontational approach against iran clearly the u.s. have sided with saudi arabia in the baton of those two regional powers there at the gulf of iran and so clearly. the situation now i believe means that the americans will take the next step say this agreement is not on board and try to put more pressure on iran still guessing here at this point but the statements that we've heard and what the israeli prime minister said
8:09 pm
definitely goes in that direction all right carson fun naaman greatly appreciate your input please don't go anywhere stay with us we're going to get your take on another story a bilateral meeting but for now thank you want to shift our focus to afghanistan where at least twenty five people have been killed and scores injured in two back to back suicide attacks in the capital kabul another blast in kandahar province to the south left eleven children dead and a third attack in the east the b.b.c. says one of its ob-gyn reporters was killed in the kabul attacks nine journalists and four police officers were among those who died the so-called islamic state group has claimed responsibility for. the two suicide bombers struck in the central shot star rock area near nato headquarters and the afghan defense ministry staggering the blast for maximum effect. after a motorcyclist set up the first explosion another attacker embedded with
8:10 pm
journalists running to the scene detonated us. second device month i want to go flemish aka the enemy was posing as a camera man. he detonated his explosives among a group of journalists in the area. in the resulting explosion a number of our journalists and other people and passers by this includes nearby residents who were gathered at the scene were wounded and martyred. so he too zak michigan one of the dead sharma wright was a a peace chief photographer in kabul some three dozen journalists have died in attacks since two thousand and sixteen reporters without borders says this was the single deadliest day for journalists since the taliban were driven out of kabul in two thousand and one little mother enemy down at the i was about ten metres away from the site of the first explosion trying to get there when the second blast happened it was very powerful when i finally got there i found many of my fellow
8:11 pm
reporters lying on the ground some of them dead already. the afghan government has pledged repeatedly to improve security in the capital but hundreds have already died in attacks since the start of this year. u.s. president donald trump has wrapped up his first meeting with an african head of states to the white house during their talks nigerian president while maher do what hari and trump are expected to focus focused on the tightening economic ties and fighting terrorism on nigeria has been battling extremist group of boko haram for nine years tens of thousands of people have been killed in multiple suicide bombings and attacks the u.s. has a six hundred million dollars deal with the country to supply military planes and security equipment to fight the insurgents who hari is expected to request for assistance. well the talks between the two leaders as i just mentioned has just
8:12 pm
wrapped up and it comes after some awkward let's say behavior from president trump just months ago the president allegedly made derogatory comments about african nations he then went on to deny them all right let's take you back to washington d.c. to the car since i'm not i'm still standing by and we can take you to la la gus in nigeria where krishna joins us from carson want to start with you what kind of reception did presidents have will not get a very friendly one from the start when president trump received his guest at the front door of the white house. that was a very friendly exchange already there and then also during the press conference president bihari made it quite a long statement actually i could see donald trump looking over to the script of his guest and see how long this is current to take but he was very friendly very polite even said nigeria is the most beautiful country. i doubt that he was ever
8:13 pm
there but still he said it and he was very friendly and all that his guest for his achievements in his country so clearly donald trump was trying to make the best impression and to give his guests the first leader from an african country to visit the white house on the trump to feel welcome feel its home and feel respected all right to feel respected aid in what is president will hari you're wanting or looking to get out of today's talks what's at stake for him. well we faired is in the press conference right now where he was clearly talking about the issue off military cooperation once again you have to recall that boko haram has been on a rampage in the northeast of the country for nine years now and although we once he got into office made huge progress in fighting the terrorists they're not gets defeated they're still at tax almost on a daily basis at least on
8:14 pm
a weekly basis they're still abductions happening and so on and we once again ask washington for more support in particular. for intelligence sharing but also for hostage negotiation partnership they get so that they get support for example in the release of the remaining more than one hundred chibok girls who are still in the hands of the terrorists who want to get back to you carson who missed it is this president and decide ministration in africa. well it's difficult to say i mean on the first look it's clearly that the americans are not too interested in africa it's not unusual very often for most u.s. administrations africa is not very high on the agenda it's particularly true i think for the current administration you can see that in the way that for instance this is the first time now that african leader has come here to washington also there was this visit by rex tillerson then the secretary of state who was fired
8:15 pm
more or less while he was still touring the continent and of course that sends a strange message to the leaders that listen had meds and also a number of key posts in the administration dealing with africa not filled yet or just with acting officials and so there clearly is not a lot of emphasis on and on the other hand africa for the americans is the last frontier when it comes to business opportunities so also he and i jury general electric and some other companies have just signed a deal they would have to upgrade the railway system in nigeria so there are opportunities in the trial but ministration sees that and of course countries like nigeria as idea just said are important partners in the fight against terrorism and my last question goes to you you watch the final press conference that just wrapped up a short while ago where both presidents able to find common ground. well
8:16 pm
i mean it sounded as if they're both talking about different key issues for each other on the one talking about the security situation trump talking pretty much about trades a lot he actually emphasized that nigeria has to remove its trade and you have to know that he has been facing serious economic issues in the country over the past year as the oil price went down the economy's extremely all dependent and the country has been facing an economy crisis and a lot of people here are saying he hasn't been handling that in the right direction it is quite interesting to see now that trump is criticizing the only thing that things he did right because he set up draperies for a number of different goods so they're not so easy to get into the country like wheat flour for example that came from the u.s. and its intention was to increase local production and this is something he was now heavily criticized by donald trump for oh right if you increase joining us from
8:17 pm
lagos the car cents on naaman reporting from washington d.c. gentlemen thank you very much. and you're still watching the t.v. news we have a lot more to tell you about say including the man a lakeland to be our media's new prime minister opposition leader nicole partially on that is the only candidate ahead of the vote by lawmakers on tuesday we'll be live in the capital of on even legal a little later on. but before that helena humphrey is here and we're going to ask are we close to a trade war let's just say that the countdown is now upon us because from tomorrow european companies could face u.s. terrorists to the tune of twenty five percent on steel we're talking ten percent of many and that is of course unless an exemption is extended and becomes permanent that's what the e.u. leaders are hoping for is what is my call and germany's machall personally pleaded
8:18 pm
for talks with trump last week but they both came away without any promises. behind the scenes u.s. and e.u. representatives are scrambling to find a last minute agreement to avoid the introduction of punitive tariffs by the u.s. the americans expect concessions saying they've been unfairly treated when it comes to trade with the e.u. the munich based institute for economic research study the tariffs on five thousand products to compare the e.u. and u.s. tax each other the results there are considerably higher barriers for u.s. product entering the e.u. than vice versa on average europeans charge a five point two percent levy as opposed to just three point five by the americans u.s. beef is especially hard hit it's taxed at sixty eight percent meanwhile the u.s. charges a forty nine percent levy on european tobacco products and twenty two percent on trucks. experts suggest lowering import duties on both sides
8:19 pm
while that would reduce european customs revenue it would certainly be cheaper than starting a trade war. in the air or to think that you can fight protectionism with protectionist policies it's like trying to tackle stupidity with stupidity. and if the conflict intensifies people could end up losing their jobs as a result we know is adamant to an economic historian and professor at columbia university in new york thank you so being with us now president trump is tel to protectionist policies visits from both mccall and medical sales to try out any promises regarding an exemption can we now expect to follow through and implement tariffs against european union. it's very hard to predict i think the behavior of the trumpet ministration those who've attempted to
8:20 pm
do so in recent months are generally fatal but on the basis of the evidence so far on the signs in the last couple of weeks i think we do have to expect a escalation so save the date deadwood stays tariffs redress the trade imbalance and i mean isn't it the case that in general prices of european goods in fact could rise ignited states certainly france's if you have been goods will rise we've already seen increases in prices for both the new million and still just through the announcement of the tariffs whether or not this will be just a trade imbalance i think one has to be extremely skeptical trade imbalances are the result not generally individual price differentials and competitiveness issues that result of macroeconomic imbalances in excess of demand in the united states relative to the messick supply and the converse in the euro zone where domestic demand is insufficient to meet or talk to potential new year as and the result is
8:21 pm
an imbalance which then shows up in the trade account of the balance between the two sides it's not something you can fix by putting terrace in taxes on particular goods so the logic i'm understanding from you then is that these terrorists would not be particularly an effective way to redress the trade imbalance what would be a sensible way of tackling it because it is problematic for the united states it is extremely not. well we should regard it's problematic for europe to the fact that europe the eurozone right now depends to the extent that it does on the current account surplus is an after effect of the eurozone crisis and a sign of the deep imbalances within the eurozone economy this is a two sided story and an effective policy for addressing it would welcome both sides it's also it for the given the size of the eurozone and the u.s. economy is a global issue and the problem here is to see a rebalancing between excessive demand in united states in an adequate amount in the eurozone so it would have to act on both sides it would require probably
8:22 pm
a fiscal tightening in the u.s. and a fiscal loosening in the euro zone and a soon as you say you say that you realize the profound political obstacles that stand in the way of any such solution neither side i think is really seriously interested in addressing the problem at that level very briefly trump says trade wars a good the u.s. program that me asking does anyone ever win trade rules yes you can win a trade war is an industrial sector which benefits from it the ticket of the all in the case of the united states if you're an economy which broadly speaking can supply itself with all its critical needs there are certain countries which can do better out of trade will others we shouldn't start from the assumption that all is good in the garden and that therefore any kind of deviation from that constitutes a disastrous slide towards inefficiency there with serious problems in the transatlantic trade balance which need to be addressed by adam to his economic historian a professor at columbia university of new york. thank you.
8:23 pm
and plenty more business it's a confidence back of announcing you so much talent and our leading opposition bloc has formally nominated protest leader nichol to become prime minister a day before a crucial vote in the parliament. that led the protest movement that announced that the country's former leader sergers are christiana last week is the only candidate currently running for a premier and says to only he can rid armenia of corruption poverty and nepotism he still needs a handful of votes from the ruling republican party which has the majority of seats in parliament to see his victory has hopes by lawmakers on choose day. and the nikolay is in armenia's capital a year of vonnegut to see nick opposition leader nicola pasha on is the only candidate in tomorrow's election for prime minister so is it a done deal. sorry i can't
8:24 pm
hear very well where i am here on your vines public square two hours ago i couldn't have been standing where i am now this was packed with people he seemed in a very good almost triumphal mood it's very upbeat that tomorrow things would go his way although this is a done deal he still needs those votes from the republican party it was a very mixed crowd very young crowd people bring their children with them we had people bring their pets it did there was no real tension to it but he says people should turn out tomorrow that he wants them out on the square behind me smart eleven o'clock in the be watching the proceedings in parliament piling up pressure to make sure things do go the way they've been hoping and that the republican party doesn't end up trying to frustrate city's efforts to become temporary acting prime minister. nick i hope you can hear me now can you hear me ok. yes. how does our how is our media run by nicole partially on likely to be different
8:25 pm
from when the country was run by surges when he was in charge. so so far he's being pretty light on detail he says he's going to change the electoral system make it fairer read this country of corruption. he's been very reluctant to go into further detail how exactly is going to do that he's been very keen to show a different style of governance and to be more inclusive he dresses a man of the people not in suits but normally in fatigues and has been walking around the country doing these sort of mass rallies with very little in the way of formal attributes we. took part in one of these demonstrations any today coming from a set up into the center of town and it was all seemingly pretty spontaneous one thing he has said though that is that he won't change i mean his foreign policy and its close ties to russia that he said would stay as same state they have being
8:26 pm
presently on stocks and that's a big factor because russia has the has very peak footprint this country has military bases very so we can all make ties in a big diaspora so that was it was very important for him to. deflect that potential criticism early on friday so he's going out of his way to reassure a moscow that while they will remain allied with russia how do you think the kremlin will view this switchover. the thing about you know the thing about that these protests that generally moscow has been very reluctant to countenance any form of street protests that very pretty allergic when it comes to seeing people out on the streets and any. challenge to what they see as government authority to do with government authorities so by meeting russian diplomats by making these statements he's really doing his best to try and show them that he's not going to challenge their interests here and to prevent any kind of any kind of russian meddling the way to go russian power play
8:27 pm
against he's his attempt to get the premiership more right nick calio of reporting from the armenian cavalier avant thank you very much. you're watching the news that we still have a lot more to share with you where including syria's notorious prisons allegedly hold over seven thousand women our correspondent yulia han met one woman now speaking out about the torture she was forced to endure and the migrants seeking alderaan ago but ending up in a mafia slave camp in southern italy d.w. culture takes a look at the latest documentary from swiss star rector marcus in health. we'll have those stories and a whole lot more coming up after these messages in a moment. the truth.

8:29 pm
hijacking the news. where i go from the news is being hijacked to journalism itself has become a scripted reality show it's not just good versus evil us versus them that's why in one. in countries like russia china churchy people are told that it's that simple and if you're a journalist figure and you try to get beyond that you are facing scare tactics intimidation. and i wonder is that where work headed is well. my responsibility as a journalist is to get beyond the smoke and mirrors it's not just about being clear from balance or being neutral it's about being truthful. when he was courting god and i want to be your. philosophy for. starters don't work and despised. karl

more now this thirty two years she's been living in turkey as the un tape has become a place of refuge from many syrians. like city here in the busy markets she doesn't attract attention. in syria she used to teach music but in twenty twelve she was arrested because she joined the protests in derry a sore against president assert. she was released after a while but then detained again and brought to damascus to military intelligence branch two one five detainees call it the. hell branch because torture there is a daily routine. yeah look if you order that was what i told you is only half of what happened in that prison especially to women there are many rape victims i many have been tortured some are tortured to death.

8:36 pm
justice. with. that report by yulia han now for the first time ever a kenyan feature film is to be screened at the prestigious can't sell festival but in a strange twist the film has now been banned in this own home country the reason tells the story of a love that in kenya is literally forbidden while the social media editor conor dillon joins us now with the latest on that drama a carter a what exactly is this movie about. well a lot of this movie is literally just about two women falling in love that's it that's the big drama you can see a clip from it right there it's called graffiti which is swahili for friends and let me show you a couple of scenes from the trailer to kind of set the mood or the feeling of the film here for you.
8:37 pm
just to be and. so you can see very dramatic very intriguing you're left wondering what happens to these two young women and again this film was initially celebrated as a success and then came the bad news in the form of a tweet from the director herself. new rico hugh she tweeted i'm incredibly sorry to announce that our film or figgy has been banned in kenya we believe adult kenyans are mature and discerning enough to watch local content but their right has been denied unless she's actually being very diplomatic there are this is a huge blow to the filmmaker in her home country also to the l.g.b. t.q. community there who might have needed this film in their lives or would have supported the film in theaters right and connor so this year we're see has been
8:38 pm
banned in kenya for those canyons who have been able to see it how was it gone down with them. well as if they've seen it it's been illegally again it's not in theaters it's not streaming it's out on d.v.d. and actually what we're seeing more online much more are people coming out and saying that they are happy that it has been banned in fact most people seem to support the ban and to give you an idea of how this is being discussed in kenya i'll show you an official tweet here from the kenyan film board that kind of jumped out at me here you can see it's giving the reasons why it was banned homosexual scenes counter to the culture and moral values it seeks to legitimize lesbian romance now it's not even worth discussing the last sentence on its merits just reminder that any homosexual act in kenya can be punished by fourteen years in prison so it's just still very shocking now this tweet here is from the c.e.o. of the film board and he goes on to say you know if some perverts want to watch the
8:39 pm
illegal content it's not because we've banned it it's because perverts and social deviants have a knack for self-destruction just a ridiculous tweet normally we wouldn't show you this kind of stuff but it gives you an idea of how this issue can be discussed in kenya and in this case by an official a public official posting it to social media posting it to twitter in this case now some support also from beyond kenya this is from fundies for months why she's a singer songwriter from south africa she says our stories will be told nothing can stop the telling of a story and banning the movie just gives us even more stories to tell we want to see it you can see the hash tag graffiti there we'll have to watch and see the festivals just all in over a week whether that publicity will help the film maybe there will be more screenings in countries outside of kenya in the future and of course the fact remains it's the first ever indian feature film to be at this stage just festival.
8:40 pm

and to spanish football giants barcelona were crowned leader champs after their win on sunday while fans billed onto the streets of the cattle and capital to celebrate this is worse one a seventh title ten years and twenty fifth overall they've now secured sting's domestic double even with the kings cup just last week. these are pictures from the film eldorado the new documentary by swiss director marcus involves it premiered at this year's berlin film festival and is currently in theaters here in germany it's the latest in a line of films to focus on the continuing humanitarian crisis. and karen house that from our culture desk is here to tell us more about this well good to see you karen so talk to us about what eldorado is being referred to here
8:50 pm
ok well it's definitely europe and sort of the paradise that that symbolizes for so many of these migrants on this film really goes into just how lucid of it it is and how increasingly difficult it is to get here especially if you're living on the wrong side of things so it's a very tall order this film because marcus imhoff sort of gives us his take on the narrative of the migration crisis as we as we know it very well here in europe but he's also weaving in an intensely personal connection and that's the story of how at the end of world war two his own family actually took in an undernourished italian girl her name was giovanna. and that was part of a children transport program organized by the red cross for these undernourished kids to recover in switzerland for up to six months so this story of his unfortunately doesn't end well and i think one of his points esther is to remind us that these kinds of crises are constantly repeating themselves and happening and that systematic efforts no matter how well intentioned they might be don't
8:51 pm
necessarily work so. let's have a look at the film of. the beach as many already shown in a new light the summer of twenty fourteen this was director marcus accompanies the italian navy on a modern nostra mission for. you'll see. the film is called eldorado named after the legendary city of gold but the only gold here comes in the form of survival for oil. and positive in and i wanted a positive title the title of hope but it also has doubt that it may be the gold isn't there maybe all perish. it's something of paradise something utopia. so it was. eldorado is intercut with director imho own story his family took in an italian refugee. during the second world war.
8:52 pm
the able are simply because someone came from the war into my family. made the girl spoke another language. well this is it was it something that has really affected me specially because she had to go back. and then she died in the east so it's really my first love story from when i was a child feels key and the love that was destroyed by politics. it's this personal encounter that inspired him to make the documentary. the film follows the journey of those who make it across the water to the reception can soon southern italy and with a hidden camera to illegal foreign workers a house to buy the mafia the women he out will be forced into prostitution and the men made to work in slave like conditions for the agricultural sector. it's. been.
8:53 pm
on the record on the law that other obvious. i don't know when they tell me about that passage. it sounds like dante. or tree paradise or they're all for them this is purgatory. but their goal is paradise northern europe or not but i do know a lot of. eldorado a sobering and personal look at one of the world's most pressing humanitarian crises. sobering indeed and without last part of the story there leila you can see this is making the point just how implicated all of us are in in this crisis. in the structure of just how close these these slave like conditions are to us here in the. now let's talk about the operation marne ostrow must saving yes it is for some
8:54 pm
these ocean crossings so that no longer exists you know that's right it was it was a humanitarian search and rescue operation that was operated by the italian navy as i think we heard but it only went on for one years of luck tolbert twenty thirteen to october twenty fourth teen after which it. replaced by the. border security operation which is called operation triton so operation actually managed to save about one hundred thirty thousand people in the time that it was active and there was a fair amount of criticism when it was discontinued obviously because the operation triton is focusing much more on border security and much less on search and rescue in the same compound and saving people from their dire situation ok this is such a huge topic and with repercussions worldwide not just here and europe lots of films have been made about this yes obviously and there's still coming hard and fast always from a slightly different angle imhoff is of course pointing out the you know the failures of the european system but it does get
8:55 pm
a little bit lost in the hugeness of the story of the end of the issue i think in his film similar but and perhaps more effective was john franco's these. documentary fire at sea that was full from two thousand and sixteen which actually won a golden bear at the berlin film festival that year and it looked very specifically at this situation off the italian island of lampedusa where wave upon wave of these desperate people were arriving in the personal tragedies of so many of these refugees in the race of the italian response similar to what we're also seeing in greece now another film just last year was human flow by the chinese artist and activist by way way and that is looking at the problem very much in its global dimension so it's very stunning certainly i mean the number of displaced people in the world hit record high in two thousand and sixteen it's upwards of sixty five million. as we speak and so this film is shot in twenty three countries very poetic
