and amid the rubble the corpses did obvious your father of the karim has been speaking to aid workers in was there and sent us this exclusive report we have pixilated softer more disturbing images in his story. the smell of death is everywhere old mosul is like an open air symmetry nearly a year after the battle between the so-called islamic state and iraqi troops and the corpses to fill the streets we meet hosseini the young nurse has volunteered to help remove the bodies. and this old house in this room we found one hundred fifty corpses they were all shot in the hand here yes. the stench is hard to take it first your nostrils chill now because we can weigh all a body it's time we burn the room and to sanitize it but how do they also. have
a cut they were left out for one on top of the other last man the women and then children. but there are still bones here there was stuck to the blankets. anyone passing by can see the corpses under the rubble. that's without bodies. a girl's hair still stuck to her abaya. the volunteers have removed one thousand three hundred fifty bodies so far. the old city most one was an eye stronghold sometimes they also find dead fighters. most with isis was responsible for your sister's death correct one initially and today you are removing the bodies of some of their fighters what goes through your mind when you do this. you know this is their place this is where they deserve to end up
ahead of us my sister said she has a grave i can visit her. to find his remains and that without a grave the fact that i get to remove their bodies is my biggest revenge fighting them with a weapon is exactly what they want they want us to be inhumane they want us to fight each other. it's life threatening work for the volunteers there could be unexploded bombs anywhere. why don't you wait till the area is secure lot and then remove the bodies he allegedly when asked security officials many times nobody wants to do this and no one wants to come here. families can't identify their loved ones because of the lack of forensic medicine. you have to shift have you met people hunting for their relatives and i've seen women older men come looking for their dead children they say their children died here but they're not sure if this is the exact place because everything's been obliterated.
what shocks you about all of this it is the bodies of women and children the little brothers me even mall is that no one asks about them not even a government. three thousand people remain missing their bodies likely somewhere here the need the rubble. that was did you have is your committed creamed reporting from the iraqi city off. now the death toll from guatemala devastating option as you listen to sixty nine authorities warn that the numbers lashley to climb as risk you walk a search for the missing the will for you go or the volcano or fire is one of the most active in central america but sunday is option was the biggest in four decades jim in what i list the president has declared a state of emergency in the area. everyone. amid the tragedy there are
moments like this. baby pulled alive from the wreck of a mountainside home yeah. colleagues to come over to share in a moment that makes this complex rescue effort all worthwhile. you know right there go on what i know you are aware of what i guess. this is a risky operation more eruptions could happen at any time rescuers are having to tread quickly and carefully over still smoldering terrain. the weather could also hinder their efforts and more to it is a race against time. spec that during the next five days it will rain harder which could become a problem. if. there's a danger of mudslides because of all the debris from the volcano that's been left in the ravines and the rivers. sunday's eruption caught many by surprise the
first explosion was followed by a strong second one people scrambling for cover searing horse ash gas and other degre perils down the mountain a toxic mix that made this eruption particularly dangerous. and this was the grim aftermath. dead bodies so thickly coated with they resembled statues in some cases the task of identifying bodies dead or alive almost impossible. one grandchild fifteen and another eight year old. that's what i came to see if i could . also got. here lord i have nothing i don't even have clothes to change a. scene from the size of the affected area becomes clear that will be three days of national mourning. the funerals here have already started
as the charges of finding survivors diminishes there are likely to be many more to calm. that's been having the update that some of the stories making news around the world jordan's king has appointed the country's education minister. to form a new government the move comes a day after the previous prime minister. resigned amid massive protests the king has called on us to review the country's tax system and launch a died all over the proposed tax reform both issues that had spock the demonstrations. us. from paris being filmed in public after a long absence that's she had disappeared she was filmed arriving at an event with president trump her first such appearance since early may the white house said mrs

charles and lamech let me just but. ok listen. it's a growing interest in germany and europe. goodson germany is generally valued as an important partner in the world ships if you'll avoid this many people want to know what we think here in germany and in europe what happens and how we live here you should put a european perspective on global events as one of the tasks that will become more important especially after britain leaves the e.u. when you won the. chancellor angela merkel speaking at the sixty fifth anniversary of adore ciavarella listening to how was the. editor in chief for michele a cafe michel of mecca mentioned post brags that what as that she had to say about . it is really she just reiterated the dump description particularly in reporting on politics and i feel it myself every single
day there is great demand out there from partners in europe but also in other regions of the world like africa and that's also one thing to explain basically what john politics is about and how those political dots connect between berlin and the rest of the world and how germany fits into this sifting picture of the global power structures that we're seeing sifting at this very moment as we speak really with those challenges not just from russia china but of course most prominently from the united states but she did stress though she did see here programming that is also produced in africa particularly on issues like climate change where african partners actually deliver programming to thoughts of other and show what constructive alternatives are what solutions to problems in the world so that also of course is of all because it is a lot more than you're seeing here right now in fact dortch of us started way back in nineteen fifty three mikaela it's rude has changed

a role in the future i personally i'm kind of proud that it's about it was the first public broadcaster that actually had a website here in germany so they're on the front of digitized something that is really something that germany itself wants to push forward that's a challenge that talks about its feeling every single day not just being in competition with other big organizations but for attention of those of us of those users those people who click on to online dater office by d.w. but also particular of course on social media thank you very much we'll let you go and enjoy the party as we saw german chancellor angela merkel was there and was given of a warm reception had been a warm words to say about a daughter bella thank you very much for your reporting for now. and to find out more badass avila fast in prison you can always go to our website d.w. dot com slash sixty five years. on this one to some other news in an unprecedented move us present dollar trump is redrawn his invitation to the current super bowl
