a meeting of islamic clerics this week who declared a fatah or a ruling against suicide bombings. first unconditional offer to the taliban for a cessation of hostilities so far there's been no comment from the group. let me now join journalist france marty he joins me from the afghan capital kabul francis how significant is this declaration of a unilateral ceasefire by the government. thanks for having me at the moment it is hard to tell how significant it is as you said this fire unilaterally is limited to one week beginning on the twelfth of july to the nineteenth of june but it is also limited in certain other parts president when he said that it only affects offensive operations against a problem and operations offensive operation against islamic stage groups or
4:03 pm
what he calls for the terrorists will continue so there is a bit the problem how this will be solved what will be continuing what. this plus you also state that troops will nonetheless you're ready to defend and hostilities from insertions side so one question is how much it will affect if they decrease violence and all the question of course is if the taliban will also react to this as you said there is no official reaction so far and piling on spokesman's couldn't contact it now when i tried a few minutes ago by telephone but it is interesting that this often unconditional ceasefire has only been made for the taliban and not the other militant groups rich operating in afghanistan why do you think that's the case and as you said a valid one has not even responded to this offer as yet. it is not that surprising if one follows the situation the year all forces fired was hard of

4:05 pm
a third approach says but how far this is possible or not is difficult to say at the moment franz monti in kabul thank you very much for that assessment. now if the ceasefire does come into effect to bring some relief the country of gonna stun is blighted by fifteen attacks that have been mainly on the taliban and the silk or islamic states earlier this week seven people were killed in the capital kabul and outside of the capital henman to province is one of the most volatile regions in the country the harrowing story of a woman from that middle as the fate of phoenician caught up between tradition and wall. eighteen year old khadija can barely remember her first husband they were engaged when he joined the taliban and was killed by u.s. troops as is customary or was then forced to marry his younger brother. we had

4:07 pm
a day as a rickshaw driver with which he has to support his whole family he used to work as an interpreter for the u.s. forces until they withdrew and left him to face the taliban's wrath. i live in fear. threatened to kill me but anything could happen there are so many attacks and shootings are nothing new to us. near the provincial capital lashkar gah the taliban have raised the flag on the roadside they cultivate opium poppies on these fields to finance their weapons their fighters haven't yet managed to get past the tight security checks bordering the city but morale among local security forces. it's sinking. so many of our policemen are being killed because we have in effect of weapons and too little ammunition. the taliban are much better armed than us. but some of the city's inhabitants are hoping for a taliban victory the militia draws its strength from the government's weakness.
4:08 pm

4:10 pm
growing anger as hopes diminish in finding survivors. authorities say after seventy two hours and with the heat in the area it's almost impossible to find anyone alive anymore and the smell of dead bodies is becoming even more evident the president visited the area but refused talking to the press as his government is experiencing much pressure because of the late response he has shown during this catastrophe now the most important thing will be to help those who have lost it all people that fled their homes with what they were worrying only and may never be able to return to where they lived their entire lives. in safer parts of us emergency shelters have been set up for the evacuees. those who made it here are the lucky ones. who has had little as he was we had to leave we couldn't take anything with us. the ashes were coming after us but the people who stayed behind were buried underneath

4:13 pm
according to current estimates because farmland isn't increasing it's up to these five firms to figure out how to coax more out of the ground that's already under the plough. now many are worried by this takeover and fear that big chemical corporations like by may soon own the intellectual property rights to genetically modified versions of almost basic foodstuffs i spoke to have. and i would counsel economists and i asked him if those worries were justified the steel as well as the other deals dupont and since that are going to come to china all these deals had to be approved by the company and competition or authorities and they have been approved i don't see any problem right now with too much market power as the competition agencies. another big factor in this takeover it is a glaive to say that is a chemical that is controversial to say the least what. everyone is afraid of it is

4:16 pm
think about the potential bailout off turkey but i'm afraid that the german politicians in particular are not going to be happy about these kind of interlinked dependencies just remember the discussions in germany that bailouts basically why should germans pay for mismanagement in other countries and given the rhetoric between germany and turkey over the postes years that will be a very very difficult situation also for the european banks and european politicians i might marry if you want. those turkish lections have already started for some a brutal that's right thank you very much we start for turkey as of bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world turkish voters living in germany can start casting their ballots today for turkey general election polling stations open this morning in turkish consulates and other locations across germany voters here have two weeks to choose a president and

4:19 pm
the. traditional outfit of the german national team of course we represent germany in a way. and i think it's a great opportunity to to overcome an atmosphere of hostility and distance russia is not our n.e.v. and the germans believe that there should be no enemy ship between germans and russians but we have severe political differences and we have to work on overcoming these differences so the exit notice game is not just for fun but also to discuss some serious political issues of course i mean we will have. a meeting afterwards and the next morning we'll talk about politics also. we know that we have to solve problems in the eastern ukraine russia must help to keep up a cease fire in that region and we want to establish. un mission

4:21 pm
a lot of these issues some think this game will head to head to hama nice you know different points of view it's only a soccer game it's not the olympic games about to look at the olympic games in korea there was a reapproach meant of south korea north korea and it was you know an opportunity to talk and sports in general or football in particular is a way off you know getting in touch and meeting as people not as politicians and by that i mean you can maybe you can create understanding on the other side and it might have on what issues in particular do you think you might be able to kind of make some progress we will not negotiate political questions we will just have an exchange of opinions we would share views and we were confront our colleagues and so they can see what what the differences are and how deep
4:22 pm
the the gap is between russia and germany and what we have to do to overcome this gap and to to reestablish friendly ties again i mean russia is. a country that you know china is building up the. the wrote. this approach to again europe must look for potential partners to enlarge the european union with other mark. it's. to establish maybe that economic region between lisboa and. bigger issues mr obama but now the most important question who's going to win the match well last time we. met the russians we lost have and i think it was by ten then goes ten goes yes that was do more than ten years ago in berlin

4:31 pm
first time before leaving for washington obvious said he hoped originated with trump on how to approach young young. one issue president trump has promised he will bring up at the summit with kim is a kidnapping of japanese nationals by north korea in the one nine hundred seventy s. and eighty's beyond young has admitted to abducting thirteen japanese citizens japan's many many unaccounted for in this next report we meet the mother of a japanese man who disappeared and now she's found what happened decades later. it was here after pan's west coast the thirteen year old to kill she disappeared from a fishing boat he'd gone out with both his uncles they intended to return the next morning but the authorities declared them officially dead soon afterwards. i never believed they were dead but because the boat was damaged in the front many thought
4:32 pm
there'd been an accident. she then tells us her incredible story twenty four years later she received a message from north korea that has some of the life. she says i travelled i have pictures of it i could hardly take him in my arms because he was such a stranger to me it long since started a family. i could hardly speak my lips were trembling so hard my knees went weak he was also shy and hardly moved a muscle the whole encounter was so surreal i said you had a small scar on your forehead and he showed it to me and then i knew it was him one hundred. after the meeting takeshi's mother found out that her son had only just
4:33 pm
told his new family about his japanese origins. what kind of badges of those we ask cruise workers metal she tells us and goes on to say that the young turkish she had learned korean very quickly and that he'd been told he'd been saved from the sea but he lived in a large apartment and pyongyang where she visited him many times but she had to promise her son that she would never say that he'd been abducted by north korea former japanese prime minister junichiro koizumi persuaded north korea to admit there had been cases of abductions but very few of those taken were able to return to japan. today there are still signs on the japanese coast urging people to report suspicious boats once i asked a question if it's hard heard when he withheld something from me he said we'll talk about that no more in the grave. and i thought that now aged eighty seven to casey's mother received a lesser offense from her son's korean family she'd said
4:34 pm
a final goodbye to them the last time she saw them. that is your thought on i've made sacrifices all my life or japan to go she had the return of a few who'd been abducted tech as she protected himself in his own way of course i helped him because we could never be sure that anyone else would not even now as north korea and the us discuss peace. or go. how can we talk when we're in the grave she asked him you'll be lying alongside your wife no mother he said that's just my life and death you and i will be reunited. now for some sport and with one week to go on to the official start of the world cup fans on their way to russia might want to think twice about packing their slot foreign governments have been warning about the possibility of digital devices being hacked in the studio with me i have not. media editor and along with him i
4:35 pm
have one of the moody who is covering the was in russia sports you lucky man and welcome to both of you now let me start with you thank you for them to russia you should leave your phone behind in this kind of unthinkable these days right we always have a phone with us but that's what a lot of these security experts are recommending now in fact here in germany the state of north rhine-westphalia as issued a warning for its officials if they are traveling to the world cup and here's a bit of what that advice says it says it should be noted that even private i.t. can be a target of spying it's therefore recommended not to take private internet enabled devices and smartphones with you we should note though on a federal level these in germany no national warnings have been issued yet you know it's journalists also that are very concerned about what could be happening in terms of their devices maybe being spied on or hacked into the committee to protect journalists has also issued several guidelines for data safety during and even
4:36 pm
after they return from russia sports teams they're also worried england's of football association they told us players and staff not to use public why fly in russia not even in their hotel rooms they're taking precautions so they're actually encrypting their passwords and they've also issued some strict guidelines in terms of posting on social media so this is a big deal all the way from politicians to football players but is this just bad i am a what is the body here exactly what i can understand especially called mention that the england team i can understand with them what the worry is because less than a year ago last august the english football association was hacked they believe by the fancy back in group. confidential e-mails were released along. antidoping records so with the fancy big groups link to believed linked to the russian military you can understand why they are a little bit worried that the hacks could take place when they're in russia and they also have been past incidents in russia where travelers have their phone taken
4:37 pm
away from them with no warning it was given back it was pretty clear that that phone had been at least in part read by officials so this is happened before it's not just paranoia now do you on going to russia for the web you think you. would get it because those of you taking well i can't go into too much detail of what our security experts have said but i can say the we are taking the cautions did of us take precautions and in my experience more precautions than we've taken previous sporting events when i think back to the rio olympics a couple of years ago the worries were more about physical security than about data security so it's definitely something that has gone up a notch in the last couple of years i'm with the children being in russia but i have to say as well i think i can say this from a security expert we were told that a lot of the recommendations are not specific to russia they apply actually to a lot of countries so i think this is about be more a way of the threat from not it's not that the threat only exists from russia and it seems is don't just jun there's something fans of it also had to give over their data that's right you have got this fan id with me here this is something that you
4:38 pm
need to get into stadiums on match days you can just sign up with you take it now we're going to go over some of the details of the fan id some of what it's about you can see the registration page now the russian government says this is mostly about giving fans these free travel it's about simplifying process and certainly will simplify the process for a lot of fans and make it a lot easier for them to get into russia in the first place but there's a lot of info you need to give now he can see at ticket information that you actually have to put in on your fan id application this is in part so that fee for can stamp out ticket touting and second degree sales also you have to give that photo much like a possible fighter and a lot of the info that will go in your passport as well. dates of birth and so on contact information too so there is a lot of information that supports is normal supporters have to give to be able to actually go to the tournament but i think it's a lot less than with a visa and is this will a booking it seems like it is working for the most part i mean this is really meant
4:39 pm
to keep those bad actors out of there but it seems like there are some cases where fan i.d.'s have been cancelled pretty much without any warning and some fans are voicing their frustration on social media this is a fan in poland he shared a story he says he bought three tickets he'd already received his fan id the word from russia that his idea had been cancelled he'd even been barred from entering the country altogether we've heard other stories from australian fans they have similar things where this was just cancelled russia does say you know they reserve the right to cancel it for security purposes or if they get word that there's been violations of sporting events not only in russia but outside of russia that could be one idea but these fans say they did nothing wrong so some frustration there with this new system but overall it does seem to be working right and that's obviously security a big issue at the world cup in russia from a social media disc well i have to get that idea again this is going to get to the lead cup thank you very much split for coming in and shedding light shedding light
4:40 pm
on this very important issue. and we stay with russia as it prepares to host the world cup or ukrainian activist is trying to turn the world's attention to the plight of political prisoners in the country or leg sense of was detained in crimea in two thousand and fourteen after criticizing russia's annexation of the peninsula the ukrainian filmmaker is now serving twenty years in a high security penal connelly our colony after being convicted on charges of terrorism has condemned the case as politically motivated send some of those that have been on hunger strike for over tree of eeks he's calling on calling on moscow to release over sixty four ukrainians being held in jail artists and journalists around the world have joined a camping demanding sense of release. how do you have a correspondent john m. to a has spoken with sense of natalia copland she told us about the conditions he's facing in prison as it continues with his hunger strike have
4:41 pm
a listen. to put it mildly only like sense of is not in good health in one of his letters he wrote that his hair was falling out his teeth were crumbling now he is receiving injections of vitamin b. and glucose every day that that's it he doesn't eat he drinks only warm water you should understand these four years of let's be frank of prison camps are destroying his health that he was born in the site and he's serving his prison term in a penal colony located in the russian arctic he is not used to this climate at all he has also suffered a heart disorder and joint pain since childhood. but you should understand that in the last four years the situation of ukrainian practical prisoners hasn't changed we have seen no progress moreover the number of ukrainian political prisoners has risen and it keeps going up oh like is aware of the problem i'm jess when it comes to him personally people are fighting for him but without success. it seems he
4:42 pm
could not see any other option at this point. terminate the hunger strike if he's released. i really hope that he will find some other ways of fighting if he is released he'll be able to give speeches and campaign proactively. that was. speaking to us about her cousin the jail you create in filmmaker all accent's of who's a hunger strike in russia and joining me in the studio now is a modern during she is the director of the european film academy which is behind the open letter to free all eight cents of which has been signed by directors and friends make us around the one welcome my enduring tell us more about your initiative and what kind of reaction you had to it in the very beginning we started in two thousand and fourteen writing to lead to letters to president putin and to the general state attorney of russia and to the minister of culture and we didn't receive a response from put in but from the minister of car show declared himself not in
4:43 pm
charge and from the general tony of the state of russia who said everything is fine so. we have them continue writing open letters and. gathering lots of signatures from filmmakers around the world and also other people from cultural and we haven't stop in for years and we also have. established a bank account to support all expense off and just so we are very very active in supporting my now since zero has been on hunger strike now for three weeks the things could be getting critical with his head what kind of additional pressure needs to be put because it's so far you had little reaction from russian officials i think for us are a long time and what we always felt is we have to be active and with three main actors because what the responsible in russia may hope for is just that after
4:44 pm
a while we will get silent and we were forget but that's what we want to show we will never forget we're not stop raising our voices and we have been joined by so many people around the world what is important now is that the politicians will get involved because. there have been for example these past days people thousands of people in seventy cities and thirty countries in the streets supporting all extents of that's very important this public attention but now it has to be solved on the highest level of the highest political level so you think now is a good time to actually raise the pressure given that the world cup is due to start there the whole spotlight is on russia that is now people start talking about this case you might get a more favorable response from russia well that we cannot predict we can only hope but there is the g. seven summit this coming weekend which is very important and only yesterday the president of the european council tasks supported us in in our public appeal and he
