total which all have messages from people who have come to manchester specifically to leave their tributes and written to those they have lost of course there's also been an outpouring social media but really what has been the amazing thing today to see. these people who are just leaving behind me the service has now finished they really did stand together next to each other in a minute of silence they cried together but they also celebrated together. and melanie was what i remember it's been a moving day dave melanie what other events are planned for today. we have one main event planned for tonight supposed to be three thousand singers joining boyce to sing together victims and we're also expecting a survivors quiet to be part of those three thousand syngas. and you can imagine

4:10 pm
urging people to stay indoors with temperatures hitting forty four degrees celsius there are concerns of widespread heat stroke as muslims fast to touring the holy month of ramadan. the palestinian foreign minister as well for israel to the international criminal court following recent bloodshed on the gaza border palestinians are calling for an immediate investigation into alleged israeli crimes more than one hundred people have been killed in recent weeks israel says it is defending its border against terrorists. and iran has dismissed u.s. threats of sanctions calling them ridiculous iranian president hassan rouhani was responding to the u.s. secretary of state might become pale pompei a warning to iran to expect the strongest sanctions ever if it did not stop enriching uranium. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg is set to face a grilling from lawmakers in brussels today they want to know how data from millions of facebook users were leaked to
4:11 pm
a political consultancy employed by donald trump they also want to know why facebook failed to reveal that link despite being aware of its existence as early as two thousand and fifteen the meeting comes three days before a major new data privacy law comes into effect in europe. if his two day appearance before the u.s. congress last month was any indication members of the european parliament can expect a respectful. watchdog well congressman congressman. congressman congressman congresswoman building at the grilling in congress politicians were at times blunt your user agreement shocks there were also replies certain to get likes from facebook lawyers as someone who uses facebook i believe that you should have complete control over your data zuckerberg visit to brussels comes just days before a massive reform of european privacy rules is rolled out the ultra bureaucratic
4:12 pm
sounding general debt protection regulation the g.d.p. are will cause headaches for social media platforms with european customers as it greatly strengthens the rights of users it forces companies that exploit user data to seek explicit consent and it adds teeth to regulations so that enforcement is easier with tougher penalties for companies that don't comply so corporate can expect plenty of questions related to facebook's compliance with the g.d.p. are plenty more related to the alleged misuse of facebook data by cambridge and a little the now defunct british consultancy that worked on getting us president donald trump elected zuckerberg will have little privacy himself during his time before parliament all of the action will be live streamed from brussels. where a big day ahead in brussels teri schultz is standing by for us there hi terry will mark secretary get more of a grilling from the europeans than he did from the u.s. congress. well it will certainly be
4:13 pm
a shorter session the entire zuckerberg appearance of the european parliament will only be about forty five minutes long compared to the two days he faced on capitol hill but that doesn't mean it will be less of substantive grilling of course the heads of the political groups could have looked at the testimony that zuckerberg gave on capitol hill and really refined their questions also europeans are known to be much more strict about data privacy than the american so but just by the fact that he'll get questioned by fewer than ten people doesn't necessarily mean that he'll get off more easily also in the room will be on full of albrecht who is known as the data privacy guru of the european parliament and claude marie's the head of the civil liberties committee so those two are definitely going to be asking some very pointed questions of mark zuckerberg and as you as you heard in that piece this was going to be a closed door session and after a huge huge outpouring of of anger from the general public and from members of the
4:14 pm
european parliament it will now be live stream so we will all see what mark zuckerberg says a lot of pressure on him and on the heads of the political groups who will be asking the questions love that pressure terri coming from the cambridge analytical scandal do e.u. leaders think facebook has done enough to abide by their privacy standards. everything will change given the general data privacy protection regulation that comes into effect on may twenty fifth at that point there will actually be repetitions for not following european data privacy rules so i think that he may have a few more days before facebook could be called called to account for this but i don't think anybody feels that facebook has done enough to protect their their private data we hear that all the time we've seen that with facebook users banding the platform but that will certainly be front and center in the questioning that we see here tonight you mentioned that new data protection law coming into effect here
4:15 pm
in europe terry what exactly is that going to mean for facebook. facebook says that it already has upgraded its user consent any company that uses private data across the internet so it's not just facebook but all the major platforms cannot get away with it anymore in addition users will have more control they will have the ability to go in and look at what these companies are doing with its data and say no if that's not ok so it's not just facebook but certainly mark zuckerberg is for many people the face of both the misuse of data privacy and the need to do better and to read beyond our privacy what other issues does the european parliament want to see facebook and mark zuckerberg address. facebook is well known to have been a major propaganda tool in the us election when he was on capitol hill zuckerberg said himself that he wished he'd been more aware of how facebook facebook was being
4:16 pm
used to spread false information and he wants to do better with that that will be something that european union lawmakers will be very interested in hearing about of course there was the threat of. the misuse of facebook and other social media in european elections we've of course. european parliamentary elections coming up as well so they would like to see those kind of activities reined in before election campaigning starts in a year teri schultz reporting for us from brussels thank you terry. you're watching d.w. still to come the search for one of the earth's most precious civil resources nasa has new mission to measure the world's water supplies. but first event is here with business and a big question for the italian economy italy's new coalition has named its pick for prime minister just seppi conti fifty four years old a law professor and political novice has he got what it takes to steer
4:17 pm
a euro skeptic government through these times of change the eurozone faces reforms which i'll get to in a bit and italy's economy needs an overhaul the nation is in the red state that stands at two point three trillion euros trillion it accounts for almost a quarter of the total debt of all eurozone member states combined pretty steep when you consider the country makes up only fifteen percent of total eurozone economic output and has a government making all sorts of promises it may not be able to deliver on france's war in the italian government from going it alone and it's the french president tomorrow macor proposed the euro zone's sweeping reforms that include a finance minister for the monetary bloc and joint liability for other countries debts chancellor angela merkel is not a cheerleader of the changes a similar level of enthusiasm from one hundred fifty four german economists. the prospect of ever closer fiscal integration across the e.u.
4:18 pm
appears to have sent shivers down the spines of many german economists in a lesser published in the front for to argue mine a newspaper they say reforms proposed by french president emmanuel and eat you commissioner john karr presented great twists to european citizens they warn that a euro zone finance minister would further politicize the role of the european central bank. in the last year they maintain that the e.c. thieves existing large scale bond buying program are ready comes close. what they call state financing. speaking to die to valor earlier this month french president emanuel underlined his position that europe needs to change its rules and for him that means closer integration is. you know we need to move forward we need a more strongly integrated europe i'm convinced of. i'd like an economic government
4:19 pm
to minister call it whatever you want it's about what goals we have i want to europe that's more democratic and less bureaucratic. but the debase about exactly what that means is far from over. as. well stephen court says an economist at the killings to trade for the world economy my first question to you is if you signed up for this petition. you know well first of all this is extremely important to see that although this is a declaration by german economists this. declaration is deeply rooted in the european spirit so it's not about what is benefiting germany at the expense of other partners in the european monetary union it has an european approach in which way in what way because we're talking about european reforms and overhauling the euro zone but the germans are against that right well
4:20 pm
or at least the majority of german economists would say very much in favor of getting back to everyone swear to the strict rules of the maastricht treaty and these rules have not been obeyed in the last ten years they were strict they were strict rules but they were never in full they were not really in force and then you italian government or seems to nonce that they do not long and careful that but it's absolutely important that we come to a monetary consensus if you want to make this monetary union exists x. why can't we have both strict rules and more integration well integration should not be. a target in itself we have to ask what shelby integrate and what shall be left to competition we must never forget that the strength of europe is its diversity this has brought this continent to the top of all of
4:21 pm
a countries and this is the source of source of all wealth and therefore we must very clearly see what are the underlying principles for workers to pull monetary union and what are rather deviations from this set of rules that bring us in very difficult territory but a finance minister for the eurozone i mean wouldn't that be a good thing you know because there's nothing that this finance minister could to do actually we do not need. a euro zone budget we have a huge budget to pay for all of these collective goods that we want to enjoy together as europeans and no one so far has answered the question what is this euro zone budget good for so you should first come to a consensus what do you want to finance with it and i do not see a single club good as we would call it as economists a single public good that is specific to the euro area and not at the same time.
4:22 pm
useful for the other european partners so this would actually drive their euro zone members apart from the rest of the european union just explain to me on a date why the germans don't want to share the liability of that i know the germans are like that or they do like helping out other countries we've seen that in greece why not help out on this level it's a completely different level sure but isn't it just the fact that germans just don't like that you know because it's even not in the interest of there are currently heavily indebted countries look at italy italy has a problem with its own transfer union between the north and the solve and the south is now a net. recipient of transfers for decades so it does not really help the development the economic progress in the currently distressed countries if you just there come up with a debt equalization scheme that is now proposed again it's important to see it's
4:23 pm
not in the interest of the union as a whole as a euro zone as a whole even not in the interest of the currently weak economist to come to a new rule that says everyone can. take up debt but the rest of the union will have to pay for it from the kill institute for the world economy seven coats thank you very much to our pleasure. i've. a court here in germany has rejected a move by prosecutors to rio rest of the catalan separatist leader carlos pushed him up the german prosecutors argue new evidence from spain showed the exiled catalan leader was provoking by lence against spanish authorities pushed him on has been in germany since he was arrested on an international warrant two months ago the court said he can remain free in germany pending a decision on his extradition to spain. let's bring india because political correspondent kate brady is keeping an eye on the story for us hi kate what did the court decide today prosecutors say they have new evidence what is that evidence so
4:24 pm
the court the state court. rejected that renewed request today from the prosecution to rearrest put your mom and they came to that decision saying that he didn't pose a risk of flight and as you mentioned that to me the prosecution did also say say that they now have new evidence which they plan to use to push forward their case extraditing put him on on the ground on the charge over a billionaire you might remember it was back at the beginning of a fool that the german courts actually ruled that could not be extradited on the grounds of rebellion saying that the violence which took place didn't amount to a comparable charge under german law but now we're hearing from the prosecution that they have received new evidence just actually video footage of spanish police and violence against all thora teasin they're saying the prosecution saying that
4:25 pm
they say it does now amounts to two charges and german law there's been treason and breaking the peace thank you just very briefly if you can when can we expect a decision on extradition. well the court said today that still very much are you paying as to when a decision will be made regarding this extradition of course it's also worth bearing in mind that they are also still examining whether they also extradited on a second charge and that's the misuse of public funds and on top of that the prosecution although they have that new evidence which we heard about today they are still yet to submit a formal application already got his kids ready for us thank you kate now it's an element that's crucial to our survival but climate change and overuse have left the world's water supplies depleted today nasa is launching a mission to find out how much water there really is on earth. the satellite pair will unfold there in tennessee as soon as they arrive in space if
4:26 pm
all goes to plan they will pass over antarctica half an hour later and send their first signal back to earth. one of their tasks is to measure the changes in water distribution on and below the earth's surface using microwaves the distance between them will be continuously measured down to thousandth of a millimeter while orbiting different gravitational pulls caused by the different sizes of mass below calls the satellites to move apart or closer together this data is then used to calculate the water content below the satellite pair will send a snapshot of the mass distribution on and below the earth's surface every month. the data will help us better understand the effects of climate change. for example how much ice on the north and south poles is actually melting. now says forerunner mission grace revealed that the mass of ice in greenland saw an overall decline
4:27 pm
between two thousand and two and sixteen around two hundred seventy billion tons of ice that misha's there every year. the satellites will enable researchers to monitor the global water supply they will also examine how over use of water has affected the height of the water table or how climate change has affected the distribution of water across the globe through changes in precipitation. both satellites are carrying a newly developed laser system created by researchers in hanover and the u.s. . it will be used for the first time during the mission to test its capabilities. it should be able to measure the satellites range ten times more precisely than conventional technology this could in time help provide even further insight into
4:28 pm
the constantly transforming physical processes on earth. the obama's on netflix and a new coach for dortmund those stories coming up in the next thirty minutes. a country on the brink of economic collapse. but on the cusp of the medical training venezuela again and again violent protests erupt demonstrators try australia as a character campbell reports undercover from a country on the edge of ruin. that is where. true so in the forty five minutes i want to believe. hijacking the news. we're arguing from the news it was being hijacked journalism itself has become a scripted reality show it's not just good vs evil us versus them black
4:29 pm
and white. in countries like russia china turkey people are told it's that simple and if you're a journalist figure and you try to get beyond it you are facing scare tactics intimidation. and i wonder is that where work had to do as well. my responsibility as a journalist is to give me no longer smoke and mirrors it's not just about being clear and balanced or being neutral it's about being truthful. when he was born golf and i were good enough to. own. a. good quality for the white house. rounded straight you know but the children truckle who is your favorite team.

in the gym is not going to win them as a church and european politics in the entire country champion three instruments for the last sixty five years just for mines. welcome back you're watching news our top stories well wishers have gathered in the northern anguish in the city of manchester chill marks one year since the deadly terrorist attack political and community leaders join survivors in manchester cathedral to remember the twenty two people who died in the attack on a pop concert in the city. and facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg is set to face a grilling from the lawmakers in brussels today they want to know. so how data from millions of facebook users were leaked to a political consultant the employed by donald trump. north korea's kim jong il and has asked us mall group of foreign journalists to witness the dismantling of the country's nuclear test site the journalists arrived in pyongyang earlier today kim
4:31 pm
promised to destroy the facility as part of efforts to create a positive atmosphere ahead of a planned summit with u.s. president trump next month but experts are divided on whether kim's plans to dismantle the site well actually achieve what he claims there's also been concern that south korean reporters were uninvited at the last minute. in a new tourist lease secretive country this is one of its most secret sites north korea's main nuclear research facility is hidden away in a system of tunnels several hundred meters underground. situated in the north east of the country sixty kilometers from the chinese border the site has been central to kim jong un's nuclear ambitions it's where all of north korea's six million nuclear tests of taken place. the latest one in september last year pyongyang declared as its first successful test of
4:32 pm
a hydrogen bomb. a bomb that could be used on an intercontinental missile to carry a nuclear weapon as far as the united states is north korea has threatened in the past. the closure of perm yury was announced after the historic meeting between the north's leader kim jong un and south korean president in at the end of april in which the two pledged to work for the complete denuclearize nation of the korean peninsula. north korean state television carried the news saying that all of the tunnels at the site would be collapsed and the entrances blocked it also announced that foreign media would be invited to cover the event. however some analysts have said that the closure of the site doesn't prove kim jong un renewed plans to denuclearize and so far north korea has not
4:33 pm
responded to pools to let independent experts verify the shutdown. skeptics have pointed to the destruction of the young people nuclear complex by kim jong un's father ten years ago the cooling tower of the plant was blown up in front of foreign t.v. camera teams and fell into to special day for the occasion. the nuclear activities at the side however continued. let's bring in correspondent jason strother who's in the south korean capital seoul covering the story for us hi jason was this a or is this a show for the cameras and why were no experts invited. right well it would indicate that this could be just a big photo op for the north korean regime since no independent analyst or nuclear experts were invited to observe the demolition of the poem gate or the site so we've had you know a team of mostly western journalists enter north korea however despite pyongyang
4:34 pm
saying south korean reporters would be allowed eight south korean journalists were denied entry to north korea up and were more or less left in beijing hoping to get on that flight south korea's unification ministry has expressed regret but hopes that the demolition of this nuclear site later this week will. will back up what will it will help support the ongoing talks that the plan summit between president trump and kim jong un for next month in addition there is a skepticism whether dismantling the site will achieve what conjunction has claimed does have other testing sites if kim decides to continue developing atomic weapons . assuming we just don't know north korea is a mountainous country the poetry site is located under a mountain even north korea's conventional weapons systems are often hidden behind
4:35 pm
many of it's hills and mountains so it's entirely possible that there are other testing facilities that we just don't have any clue about jason everyone looking towards the summit with u.s. president trump in a few weeks what could be rail it at this point. pretty much anything sumi i mean it's just last week north korea said that because of ongoing south korean and u.s. military exercises it might consider calling off the talks and also said that washington's insistence that come young denuclearize unilaterally could also call off the talks as well as pointing out that some of what national security advisor john bolton said. that he'd like to see a libyans style denuclearization take place in north korea of course moammar gadhafi died after giving up his nuclear program in the early two thousand.
4:36 pm
said that could also be rail the talks so but despite all that there there is no indication that they are there's no indication that they are off the table now all right correspondent jason strother reporting for us from seoul thank you jason. still to come on d w the royal academy of the arts in london is celebrating its two hundred fiftieth anniversary with a redesign overseen by star architect david chipperfield. and in sports percy dortmund announced their new coach will loose in five years experience in the bundesliga be enough to help revive germany's second biggest club will take a look. at first then its back with an improvement then in the us china trade you know what happened to that trade war sumeet china plans to slash import duties on foreign cars starting july first tarps we load from as much as twenty five percent to fifteen percent beijing's announcement comes after promises it will gradually be easing restrictions on foreign investment in the auto aircraft and ship building
4:37 pm
industries the united states and china recently said they would hold off on punitive tariffs on each other's goods the two countries a negotiating a deal that's aimed at narrowing china's trade surplus with the u.s. . of course one of the. joins us from beijing with us how much of a difference are these compromises making a very cosmetic obviously designed to appease trump. well china has announced this some time ago these slashes in import taxes on cars they were probably not make a big difference to most of the car makers they will impact the imports of the high end comm makers such as the high end models of b.m.w. or dima or tesla which is something that donald trump will probably be happy about for most of the other car makers this is not probably in going to influence their
4:38 pm
business too much they all have joint ventures here in china they produced locally and it doesn't make sense for them to replace their local production with imports this is something that china is probably it's probably something very safe for china to do at the same time it's something that the western governments have to manage for a long time so it's i guess this is a gesture more than real policy change game it is betting a forest there on the trade war that isn't and a good deal in trump's eyes we'll see what beijing comes up with next thank you. the united states has imposed new sanctions on business way in response to the reelection of president nicolas maduro washington is now restricting the country's ability to state assets and data in the us american companies and individuals are also prohibited from purchasing debt from venezuela the new sanctions aimed to

4:40 pm
number that accounts for a strong economy. many young people in turkey can't find a job a sure sign that the boom years are over one in five in that age group is now jobless the country's economy has taken several hits in recent years one main reason more and more foreign capital is leaving turkey an emerging economy especially dependent on outside investment. those factors have sent the country's currency the lira tumbling by twelve percent since mid april alone it's lost seventeen percent since the start of the year. to stop the trend and to attract foreign money again the central bank would have to raise interest rates even further it lifted one key rate to thirteen and a half percent in april. president bad one recently called interest rates the mother of all evil and pledged to force the central bank into lowering them seen by many as an election bribe to indebted citizens and companies. to ones plan to
