germany's one point four million turks begin casting their ballots in turkey's not relaxing we meet some of them on the campaign trail in public. on football and joked argentina pulls out of its world cup what much against israel after the game was moved to jerusalem palestinian groups say it's the right decision. i did set to be this summer as must top football ok nigeria has found something buying up the super eagles world cup uniform intro's correspondent in lagos finds out what all the fuss is about. i'm phil girl welcome to the program. the latest mission to the international space station is on its way. three to. one.
8:02 pm
there. the three strong crew blasted off from the baikonur cosmodrome in kazakhstan copilot by german alexander guest on his second mission he'll take over as commander later this year. so i was going to get asked americans. on chancellor and russians b.f. will spend six months aboard the international space station that's a long time to be away from family and friends d.w. correspondents are going to shatter film with these pictures of dr guest staying goodbye on his way to the launch pad crews of quarantine before taking off to safeguard against illness that he had won last message for his mother before driving off. thomas reiter is a former astronaut he's now an advisor to the european space agency he spoke to us
8:03 pm
from the launch site in baikonur we asked him if he wished that he was on his way back into space. it brings really marvelous memories speck for me it's already more than twenty years ago that i was launching from. at this time to the russian space station you know seeing this perfect launch today was just gorgeous of course seeing the three person crew with serena and sergei blasting to the blue sky. it's just marvelous if somebody would ask me if my boss would ask me if i would be ready to go again i wouldn't have to think twice it takes ninety minutes only to fly around the earth every ninety minutes you have a sunrise sunset and when you're on the night side of the all bit the look into the stary sky is something unbelievable i've never seen such a scary sky here from so this all together makes it extremely unique to live and work up there. former astronaut to thomas reiter. is head of the european
8:04 pm
space agency's astronaut training division a welcome to d.w. . it's going to take two days for the crew to reach the i asked us how will they pass the time. they'll be doing maneuvers to get closer to the space station but that is only taking a fraction of the time and also be checking out the systems used for the docking and the systems that are used for the communication between the isis and the soyuz capsule as the capsule approaches the space station and the rest of the time it's actually free time they'll have a lot of free time and they'll sleep two nights hopefully very well and have time to adapt themselves to the new environment. playing with i pads or reading books one of the of they'll have certainly electronic entertainment books is always a question of weight because weight bringing up is costly so it would probably be an electronic book rather than
8:05 pm
a physical. paper and there's going to be tall. with with the ground talks potentially also with the families such that they can already get the first impressions down to their loved ones can decide if this is a city question or not what does face flight feel like. that's a it's not a silly question the problem for me is it's very difficult i haven't been to space myself but i've done a per flight which gives you weightlessness for a fraction of a minute twenty two seconds actually. it feels very unique because you're really floating and you don't have the pressure of being on the ground or being pulled to the ground so it's really unique experience. quite undescribable sensation really ok so you're mr astronauts traina these guys have been trying for
8:06 pm
it for two years i think for this mission what was the training involved. the training focuses in those two years really on what they have to do for the mission so we're teaching them about the spacecraft functioning about the repair jobs that they have to do the maintenance job it's a giant machine it needs oil laying it. shining on on the edges there's a lot of work involved that has to be done by the to keep it going and then of course there's a lot of work going into preparation for the soyuz flight being able to fly and potentially pilot vehicle is a task that takes nine months out of these two years already and then we have the science bitch where we teach them how to be the experimenter that does what the scientists on the ground want them to do because ultimately the experiments for scientists on earth. stay with us if you would mind we're going to have
8:07 pm
a look at what alex asked alexander guest will be doing up there and then we'll we'll come back. t.v. because part of the international space station mission is to conduct experiments on the effects of space travel on the human body that information is crucial for future space missions to distant planets. alexander guests mission will open up new horizons it's expected to pave the way for further space exploration for manned flights to the moon and mars. astronauts health is crucial one of this missions medical experiments focuses on the body's internal clock which controls sleep attention and energy consumption how the internal clock ticks during space travel will be investigated in long term experiments. when they fly to the moon or mars the astronauts will be on their own this mission will test the technologies that make
8:08 pm
this possible. for example a new life support system is due to be installed on the space station. it will use algae to help improve the air quality and also provide the astronauts with nutrition. from the space station alexander guest will control this humanoid robot on earth. using a tablet p.c. the astronaut will send commands from space that just in the robot will then execute for example aligning solar panels. its fundamental research for a future manned missions to the moon and mars. the head of the european space agency's astronaut to training division pretty good still with me let's talk about the long term effects of spaceflight we've been doing this now for
8:09 pm
decades what effects will crew members notice when they come back after the. six months. the most obvious effects are defects all on the muscle system and on blood circulation because while we do a lot of exercise in space to keep the muscles active you do lose some muscle muscle mass while you're in space simply because for your locomotion in space you don't need a lot of force so that reduces muscle and the fact that you have no gravity that pulls the blood down in the body to your feet the heart works less plus your body actually reduces the fluid volume of blood that you have because it does need so much to sit in your legs any more when you come back that's the first thing that happens all the blood again follows gravity goes into your legs and that
8:10 pm
can lead to noise can also lead to problems really walking about now with the exercise that we're doing on on the space station we can minimize those effects as much as possible in fact alex i know when he came back from his last mission walked pretty normal very soon after that so it's over land and then they've got it from the seats that you all yeah just like that yes yes it's fascinating i could talk to all the accounts. from the european space agency thank you so much for joining g.w. thank you very much. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world around one hundred firefighters have been battling a blaze is a luxury hotel in london smoke can be seen here rising from the roof of the mandarin oriental in the affluent knightsbridge district the hotel is great if accurate and nearby roads close calls is not yet. israel's prime minister

8:13 pm
a pity and we're hoping the government will help us we don't have anywhere to stay we've lost everything our land our homes he couldn't take anything with us. back in the disaster area many homes have been buried by ash. rescue crews are looking for survivors and victims but they acknowledge their progress has been slowed due to the dangerous terrain. that the our manuals say that the first response is supposed to be within seventy two hours. but what hasn't been taken into account is the factors holding back our work. like volcanic material at high temperatures we're talking between four hundred seven hundred degrees celsius. the area around the volcano is normally lush farmland but where the ash has fallen it now looks more like a lunar landscape. meanwhile dozens more homes in the u.s.
8:14 pm

8:16 pm
in these products. that was the response in frankfurt now let's not forget where all this comes from donald trump wants to reduce america's straight deficit that means he wants to sell more and buy less figures published by the u.s. department of commerce today show the country's trade deficit dropped indeed to a seven month low in april the u.s. total trade deficit in goods and services was forty six billion dollars that's two point one percent less than in march american exports reached an all time high while imports fell especially from mexico and japan but the trade deficit with china rose by more than eight percent to twenty eight billion dollars president trump repeatedly complains that countries like china are taking advantage of the u.s. he's already announced tariffs against fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods like washing machines and solar panels on america's deficit with the e.u. also rose by whopping seventeen percent to fifteen billion dollars. in other news

favorites would be good publicity for israel he did not qualify for the finals in russia but moving the match to drew slim has backfired defense minister avigdor lieberman said argentina had given in to israeli hating agitators a blow to israel politically but also a blow to argentina with the game due to have been the last warm up before the world cup kicks off next thursday. as you can imagine this issue has been all over social media don't do social media call the welcome call so calls for argentina to pull out of the match against israel turned into quite a heated campaign yeah i mean that anger that we saw there in that report is kind of brewing for a while on social media it was really channeled into this campaign to get the match canceled and of course the biggest target of this campaign was the biggest star in the world. place for argentina and these propellants the activists they were part of that campaign they were not subtle actually staining nesis. jersey with red

inequality around the world you guys are starting class war the response to that statement should be yes we are starting plants walk again because retire. rich. an exclusive report starting june eleventh on d w. d w five from. the next a fifteen minute commit violence against women will hear from the head of the u.n. body that's been tasked to do exactly that. on the russia for the nigeria football jersey correspondents go looking for the country's most popular sports where. you saw the if you're if you're one of africa's longest running border disputes could be coming to an end the
8:31 pm
ethiopian government has said that it will accept the terms of an agreement to end hostilities with neighboring eritrea this conflict began in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight in the border town of me if you know p.r. and eritrea both claim to have staked claim to their site market town and this would later become a major hurdle in the implementation of a border rolling violence exchanges in bad may soon turned out to become a border war lasting two years and cost. think eighty thousand lives terribly played by both countries changed hands throughout the course of the war peace deal was signed in two thousand leading to the formation of a boundary commission tasked with dividing disputed areas between the two countries in two thousand and two the commission made its final and binding ruling but ethiopia refused to accept it if european has now reverse that stand here's more on what's been described as africa's deadliest border war. this is bad math
8:32 pm
in one thousand nine hundred eight after iraq tracey's the territory it launched a fierce offensive to keep its southern neighbor ethiopia from the town it would all be in vain in the end after heavy casualties on both sides ethiopia won a string of military victories which saw its troops move into the disputed territory. the conflict between the two countries left tens of thousands stage or injured in the space of just two years as the war spread so did the massive displacement of communities. today eritreans make up the bulk of migrants risking the treacherous mediterranean journey into the hopes of making it to teach europe many are fleeing the country because of compulsory military service that has been described by human rights groups as harsh the eritrean government says it forces conscripts in because it
8:33 pm
needs a constant large army to defend itself in the conflict with ethiopia that conflict may be coming to an end with a gesture of peace coming from. under its new prime minister abi armitt ethiopia has said it will recognize a two thousand and two ruling on the border between the two countries part of the ruling handed the border town of butler to eritrea was. or constantine. a free shift he joins us from the capital. welcome to why has suddenly changed its mind. load leverage let me try again it's like we're having some communication difficulties. groaned and. why has changed its mind about
8:34 pm
accepting this ruling. well first of all as you correctly mentioned that is one of the most entrenched conflicts on the african continent and for eighteen years there have been no movement whatsoever and i was out of this the. situation between eritrea and ethiopia and i think there's a lot of lot of influence of the new prime minister abi ahmed here now it's your guy who is trying to turn the page to either nationally or less like a message obviously dismissiveness still got a hostile internationally and he obviously knows very well that that border conflict with their injury as one of the most important challenges domestic policy that is that it's your guys facing at the moment so dressing this issue is that why we move you know already reached out to him to be at its inaugural speech. in the parliament two months ago and that this is the first concrete steps and direction
8:35 pm
so if you know he has taken that step what word from eritrea. well so far they have a modest response as fun as far as as we can see good not just out of this either there was some comments and that our links to this and i question if that is going to go to the bottom it or not from my understanding there will be a movement on the climate is a calling back these troops in the next couple of hours a lot that is so then the further that issues of of negotiations between these countries again and then continue whether this is a problem. do you think the war is now over. well if a bus looks like it obviously if you have a country like this and there's a very long long lasting conflict over eighty years now and still it is there is
8:36 pm
a sentiment and i think at the end of the day. is it leaders it's was find a way to solve the situation you want to sort of forget that along the border people belong to the same group and now families are divided and then people are suffering also economically suffering and i think there's a lot of attention on the matter at the moment and we should be done giving some some benefit of without doubt that both sides. find a peaceful solution for the situation that well we thank you for joining us constantine grown from the friedrich shift only in ethiopia in the thank you. one billion the united nations says that is the number of women around the world suffering violence in their daily lives so how best to end this violence is a topic of conversation at a global beating after vellum tokenization is in brussels mambo koka as they
8:37 pm
exactly the director of un women and is one of the speakers at this event p.w. teri schultz spoke to her about this issue. thank you very much for joining us madam lumba nuka what are the main drivers of violence against women and gender inequality overall. leaves women is the less economic kylee empire what members of society lives a lot of women venerable independent is on men and they. account almost in all countries is that no my lies is the way women get it is inferior and less some members of society which then gives in the opportunity for violence to be present almost in every country in every strata of society even in the well it's.
8:38 pm
end because said the power relations are such that men still have significant power politically economically and so on we do not have a strong people who are leading from or a front from a powerful position a who are facilitating this change is women are having to fight their way all the way without having the kind of partnership and solidarity that to bring up out a significant change is it is changing and a we're seeing more and more men taking a stand and of course women on their own have made a little bit of progress but it's not been enough to tend not around and give us a society that believes women feel free oh how can the united nations do something about this you talk about men in high places but also men in small villages how can the u.n.
8:39 pm
really reach into all of these places and change things when two approaches we have to do the part some. where we where especially with civil society in communities with the women's movement with young people so that in their own communities they can be the voice for change and the excess for change there is not kind to where we have seen development that is positive on the side of ending violence against women on the side of gender inequality in general where you don't have a strong presence of active civil society so creating the space and supporting civil society and investing in civil society in women's organization is critical and we partner with civil society all over the well last year in women we cannot exist without civil society but on the other hand these also laws in many countries that still discriminates against women when for instance domestic violence is not
8:40 pm
criminalized about forty countries have courts that's even aware we have been able to change the laws it does not mean that to happen automatically you still have to work to change the norms and the stereotype so you need to bottom up and also from from the top working down and making sure that somewhere in the middle all of these initiatives come together forty countries did you just to clarify forty countries where it still is not against the law and on legislation we have been aware filings against years so we have been working in more intensely for instance in the last five years pushing a for the end of discriminative laws so almost in every year we have to change about seventy kind seventy laws. around the world of course them have to do with violence against women i do not they saw one of the things that we have
8:41 pm
to achieve within this period of sustainable development goals this kind of wait for twenty thirty it has to have happened yesterday we are waking very hard to make sure that to address these countries these laws that still discriminate against women that still make it possible for pepper to testify lends to free. now with the world cup just over a week away fans around the world are giving up to support their teams in nigeria that's led to a shortage of the team's official jersey to w.'s correspondence in lagos have made it their mission to find some kit. the beginning of the world cup is coming but people here are saying it is not possible anymore to get a jersey of the nigerian national team flourish do you think that is true well one time i head over to the official store to see if i can get one myself all right then i'll go to lagos island to the market and see who of us will be the lucky one
8:42 pm
. one of the big malls. i'm going to see. today. oh it looks like we still have the ship and it feels really nice in the booth soon . see any of the shelves i think you only have the old ones i. wouldn't. care but much of the wood on the front page says he just told you the so called good ship. he goes full. on this is not the best comes naturally the stock so.
