8:02 pm
thanks for your company everybody we start our broadcast with what is proving to be a stress test for germany's coalition which is not even one hundred days old this country is embroiled in a serious political crisis after chancellor angela merkel's authority has been publicly challenged by her interior minister horse a ha for her position hanging by a thread after mr say hoffer a member of her own conservative bloc and sister party the c.s.u. went against her they offer wants to implement a plan under which some migrants would be turned away at the german border chancellor merkel has rejected that idea insisting instead on finding a joint european approach. medicals governing coalition has begun to wobble over i won't come in policy toward refugees but her own conservative party the c d u still backs her the but very and conservatives the c s you are in open
8:03 pm
rebellion. despite attempts at finding a consensus c s u leaders say a change in policy is needed now. two flaws in the stream of illegal migrants to germany is a big problems of the before and the populace is very critical but it's a political hot potato wherever we go we have to solve this problem now. machall hopes to negotiate a european solution to the migrant issue when e.u. heads of state meet in brussels in two weeks' time she argues that germany shouldn't be acting on its own offering a quote to the effect that international problems require international solutions. if it is the world is highly integrated everything is too interconnected for any individual country to determine its destiny alone very wise words. but germany c.s.u. interior minister horst c. who for wants germany to refuse entry to migrants registered in other countries and
8:04 pm
he made issue orders to that effect against merkel's wishes the opposition sees this as a political putsch does isis din of the indies or the government is on thin ice that's obvious. this is another attempt from the right to being of the conservatives to launch a takeover in the hyatt on your own time is running out for the two sides to reach a compromise if they don't until americans government could be in serious trouble. and many have been blindsided by the speed at which this crisis unfolded we have lots to unpack and thankfully we can do that we did receive political correspondent melinda crane who is covering developments and melinda my first question is two pronged is this a chancellor merkel's worst crisis and could we see the german government collapse over the refugee policy. it's certainly her worst crisis within her own
8:05 pm
party the tensions have been simmering for some time but they have truly come to a head here and yes the worst case scenario would indeed to be that the government would fall and germany would move toward new elections now there is a feverish attempt to find a compromise we're told that the former finance minister and now president of the parliament will function is trying to mediate between the two conservative parties the c.d.u. and the e.c. as you and he does have respect from both sides he's also known and known as being quite conservative and cautious in the area of migration and asylum so we can be sure that he'll be pushing hard for a compromise that would both allow essentially both sides to save face but also give the chancellor that two week period to try to find
8:06 pm
a multilateral sustainable european solution in the run up to the e.u. summit that is to take place at the end of the month but if in fact there is no compromise by monday and the interior minister moves ahead with his threat to essentially exercise his powers and reimposed border controls along some of germany's borders that could put the car the chancellor in the awkward position of having to fire him we'd then see his conservative bloc leave the government coalition and they would then no longer have a majority of the seats in parliament meaning the government would fall and would have new elections right so this weekend could be a make or break a type of situation for chancellor americal well you know why is there so much bad blood between mr de offer and chancellor angela merkel. as i said the tensions over immigration policy have been simmering for some time mr c. ho fers bavarian conservatives were opposed to that open door policy right from its
8:07 pm
inception in twenty fifteen and they have continued to oppose it not least right now because they have a very important regional election coming up in their heartland in bavaria they are extremely eager to be seen as tough on immigration because of increasing support within bavaria as well as within germany as a whole for the anti immigration right wing party the a have they are very concerned about losing their absolute majority in their homeland and that's why they're putting on the pressure now there is no objective urgency to this there is no great disorder at the border but there is certainly anxiety on the part of the conservatives all right melinda i suggest that we take a look at the latest approval ratings now because in for a test to die in one of the main pollsters here in germany has published the following findings in the midst of this political crisis this poll was conducted
8:08 pm
before the outbreak of the current political raul they surveyed one thousand and six german voters asking them what they thought about differing migration proposals and this is what came out of the proposal that to do the greatest agreement was the one that called for deportations of asylum seekers whose applications had been turned down eighty six percent of those who responded agreed with that premise and only ten percent disagreed now let's take a look at the level of popularity enjoyed by uncle america's coalition are these findings they also from before the political turmoil erupted so that's really important to keep in mind that people were asked how satisfied are you with the german government's performance and these. our findings that will put up on the screen right now a clear majority there you go almost two thirds admit that they were dissatisfied only about a third of voters said they were satisfied with the government's performance
8:09 pm
melinda if we take these findings at face value what do you make of them. first of all it is important to bear in mind that these questions were posed in the poll before the current dispute so that finding on deportation eighty six percent of germans saying they'd like to see clearer measures tougher measures on that to be honest that is not a big surprise if you look at the coalition agreement which i just went back to this evening to take another look it is clearly written in there that all of the coalition parties agree that there needs to be a clearer process of deportation more expeditious and that they would work toward that so both the chancellor and the interior minister have signed on to that in the coalition agreement and clearly that is what germans want but this finding doesn't
8:10 pm
necessarily represent a ratification of mr siegel first take on the matter because what he's suggesting is that germany should move ahead on this unilaterally and right now and if you again look at the coalition agreement they also all the members of the coalition signed up to a european approach to reforming immigration policy so in fact mr say hope for a path that does not go along with that now the second finding on the support for the coalition frankly many germans did not want another grand coalition they in fact much would have preferred to see the chancellor's conservatives got their govern in a different constellation that didn't come about so this coalition is nobody's favorite and i think that probably best explains that result no no what i wonder and i hope you can shed some light on this is this politically seen is a really risky move on the part of mr they offer and his party the c.s.u.
8:11 pm
i mean these two parties the c.d.u. and the c.s.u. are joined at the hip yes c.s.u. was big in bavaria but how relevant is it nationally without the c.d.u. . not very and that is a puzzling aspect of all of this to me i don't really entirely see mr z. who fares and game here certainly he personally as a political leader has a whole lot to lose if he sticks with this ultimatum on monday he's going to be fired by the chancellor and then that scenario ensues where in fact his his conservative party might leave the overall conservative bloc with as you say little clout on the national level if he stays he's weakened by what has transpired here so that's a bit puzzling there are however internal machinations within the varian conservative party that may explain some of this specifically if they have a bad result in that upcoming regional election some of the other party leaders may
8:12 pm
be looking to set up mr c. hall for as a scapegoat but that takes us so far down a very complicated internal political path that i think we won't go further on that but it is a very complex question very complex question indeed but thank you so much for shedding some light on it political correspondent linda crane as always thank you i want to bring up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world donald trump's former campaign manager paul man of ford has been ordered to jail a federal judge revoked metaphor's house arrest a week after special counsel robert muller charged him with britain is tampering man of foreigners facing two criminal trials on charges including fraud and conspiracy against the united states the afghan defense ministry says a u.s. drone strike has killed the leader of pakistan's talabani who are a lot is pakistan's most wanted militant is notorious for doing the country's worst
8:13 pm
ever school shooting and the attempted assassination of nobel prize winner malala use of say. you're watching the news with sort of a lot more to tell you about including the man carrying to be president of turkey from jail we reached the supporters of the silver had seen the mirror toss we've just over a week to go to the collection. but first i'd like to hand you over to how our now because we had a quite a day in terms of global trade you can say that again lately things a definitely not getting any friendlier right now in fact the trade route while it just moved up a few notches is u.s. president donald trump hits china hard beijing says it will retaliate with quote equal strength is adding fuel to the far as well although the heat today mostly coming from washington with chump announcing twenty five percent tire ifs on every thousand chinese products mainly from next month think crude high text very much
8:14 pm
taking aim at beijing's ambitions to transition to a tech economy now they add up to a total of around fifty billion dollars in fact in punitive tariffs what trump calls unfair trade practices the european union is hitting back against the previous us to seize on steel and other medium by imposing levies on american goods worth about three point three billion dollars now included on that list of course we've got blue jeans whiskey and motorcycles now the e.u. may be united on that matter but on other issues of trade it's fair to say cracks are now beginning to show it please government for one threatening not to ratify the e.u.'s trade deal with canada sita italian saying that he agree when it does not protect regional products like parmigiano and pursuit it seems that we are now indeed on the brink of a trade war. u.s. president donald trump says the friendship with chinese president xi jinping is
8:15 pm
important to him but he feels chinese business practices are unfair and that's why he wants to impose twenty five percent punitive tariffs on goods worth some fifty billion dollars. around eleven hundred products will be affected especially those from china is made in china twenty five industrial initiative areas that will be affected are aircraft manufacture information and communication technology robotics and mechanical engineering and the car industry chinese consumer goods such as mobile phones and televisions are expressively excluded so that u.s. consumers won't be burdened by higher prices china for its part now wants to introduce additional tariffs on american goods on a similar scale as previously announced. if the united states imposes unilateral protectionist measures that harm china's interests we will react
8:16 pm
quickly and take the necessary steps to resolutely safeguard our fair and legitimate rights. washington has already primed its guns and is preparing another list of additional tariffs worth some one hundred billion dollars. and covering this story for us is a washington correspondent claire richardson we can bring her in now the intervals between moves in this dispute they appeared to be sure where are we now would and who has the upper hand. well this is a major escalation in what is creeping toward a trade war between the world's two biggest economies and as you say the kind of tit for tat retaliation is picking up pace and this is just the latest move in several very turbulent months in which we're really seeing president donald trump making good on his promises of a hard line trade policy things like imposing of those steel and aluminum tariffs
8:17 pm
on key u.s. allies trying to renegotiate nafta with canada and mexico and now these tariffs on china and he's hardly the first u.s. president to complain about chinese trading practices however it is very much the first time we've seen a u.s. president take them on like this it's part of trump's long held belief that the united states is really getting the bad end of a deal that the international agreements that it is partner to do not serve in its interests and that previous administrations have done wrong by the american people by signing on to them so trump sees him self as a master dealmaker and he's going he's fulfilling his campaign promise of going hard with his trade policy to try and get a what he sees as a more favorable circumstance for the united states and the supposed the question now really. is the strategy actually working for him. well some global economist think or at least hope that this is part of a grander strategy that donald trump has in which he's hoping to really hit hard in
8:18 pm
order to have more negotiating leverage to get a better trade deal however if this is just an end in the if these tariffs are just an end in themselves we could be looking at americans paying more in stores weaker profits of slower growth worldwide still an aluminum industry will be happy about it again one of his campaign promises was to protect american manufacturing and they will be pleased to see their jobs protected from that the tariffs on steel and aluminum but this streak is also the question how much this how much the rich the question of how much this is going to hurt is really going to depend on how china and the european union and other countries affected by these tariffs are going to retaliate and how much damage they can actually do right and of course the europeans and the chinese strategy over retaliation is that working because let's be honest the u.s. economy is looking well thirty robust right now the u.s. economy is strong and that's what republicans are banking on in order to hold onto
8:19 pm
control of the u.s. house of representatives and the senate in this november's midterm elections and i you mentioned the european union was targeting some all-american or products things like a bourbon jeans harley davidson motorcycles and that is meant to be politically damaging in states where trump has a lot of support and in areas where there are republicans seeking re-election. richardson in washington thank you very much. well as a visa leyla now and all eyes are on an upcoming presidential election very important one indeed because turkey goes to the polls in just over a week's time and the incumbent president richard tired one may be the clear front runner but that's not stopping opposition candidates from running against him even if they're in jail the pro kurdish h.t.t.p. presidential candidate so hot in their marriage tosh was detained back in november two thousand and sixteen it is the supporters are out in the streets rallying support. if you knew how to muse
8:20 pm
a political campaign through and through from sun up to sundown he can be found working the streets of istanbul district he's drumming up support for the program. the voters who don't cross his path are unlikely to learn much about the party's program many church media outlets don't report on them if it bit you. the. we don't get any airtime on turkish t.v. the we're practically invisible and it's their broadcasters and newspapers that have reported on us but they've been shut down it's that if they want to make it difficult for us because it's a little head again jewish pluto we're not going to give up the. other mother. according to the watchdog reporters without borders more than eighty percent of turkish media are owned by companies close to president. that is particularly evident during election campaigning. for example in the last two weeks of made
8:21 pm
turkey's public broadcaster t.r.t. spend more than sixty eight hours reporting on outlines compay opposition leader morgan in gent his c.h.p. were given only six hours of air time met on auction as each party featured for just thirteen minutes the h d p candidates. has never been shown on am. the procurators h d p in particular faces many difficulties president out has effectively declared the party an enemy of the state he accuses it all spreading terrorist propaganda and having ties to the militant k.k.k. group because of this the h.d. peace presidential candidate salatin damage runs in his campaign from jail he has been in custody for more than one and alvie is a presidential candidate standing from inside prison that's a first for turkey the e.u. and international observers have sharply criticized the government's handling of the. but that doesn't help him much his election campaigning has so far been
8:22 pm
limited to social media recently on twitter he asked his news broadcast as why they have never reported on his campaign but he didn't get an answer in a written interview with g w he said. there's no justification why in these critical times the media are opting to see no evil hear no evil and speak no evil and why they are serving the interests of the government. funny how dania the h.t.t.p. campaigner in istanbul such obstacles are just part of everyday life but despite the challenges he continues he says the harder life becomes for his people the harder he will work for change. time now to check in on a world cup in russia where the first full day of matches has served up plenty of drama to talk it all over we've got matt herman here from sports so good to see you
8:23 pm
matt talk us through the real nail biter of the evening up to now morocco iran what happened there yeah this was a real nail biter it was scoreless through eighty nine minutes there was lots and lots of stoppages in the second half there were six minutes of time added on and something happened in those six minutes let's look at the tape here the own goal very late on from. this before do. you know in the one minute left in this game it looked like these two teams were going to settle for a draw that might have benefited them i put it past his keeper of real tears as you see there from morocco jubilation for iran this is a very good start for them would be it looked like this might be a tough route from them but this is a really nice start if this is a harsh result has to be said they threatened to play iran off the pitch in the first half hour so i thought they were going to win this game and. i had the better
8:24 pm
chances but you know it is part of iran's game plan to come to this world cup and defend defend defend that plan worked they showed that they can do that well if they can do that against spain and portugal they might be going through all right who knows let's talk about the earlier match that happened in the day yet that was egypt versus worldwide this is another interesting match in that had a lot of star power have luis suarez tad you know potentially most sallah he didn't end up playing he was left on the bench i guess he's not fully fit egypt wanted to play it safe let's look at the tape here this is another late winner only came from you know not attacking player rather than an own goal it was a free kick headed. medico madrid defender cosi my via humanise this guy is probably going to have your very important member of the tour quite seem in this campaign not only for his his heading of the ball and putting goals but he is a crack central defender he's right next to his club central defender in diego b.
8:25 pm
dean and if they can have you know strength at the back and strength up front with the likes of luis suarez and it's in cavani could have a very very good world cup probably a deserved win for them they did also have the better chance they probably could've put in three or four if they had been a bit canny or up front and a really tough loss for egypt who you know they thought they were going to get away with a draw despite not even playing their superstar most sallah it's has to be hard on them to you know not see any points out of this but having said all of that who do you think is off to the best start at this stage well i mean you have to say in terms of the games that are completed russia i mean five gold margin win is very very tough to beat i still think that they might struggle against or acquire or egypt when they you know face them down the line and of course we're also going to have to see what happens in this portugal spain match which is underway at the. i meant. iran they are going to be very pleased with their three points
8:26 pm
a lot of folks thought that they might get shut out in this world cup of the ball didn't bounce their way so they're very happy you know what will have to see and they have to go shopping for shoes just wouldn't send them because the u.s. government said you know you can't sell anything to the iranians so if they were wearing adidas but you know boots today say that we've all got it right. now for matches the for tomorrow so you know we have to stay home we're all saturday along which ones should we be paying close attention to it's really a tale of two and two i mean two of these matches feature hot favorites france are facing australia bit of a minnow and argentina are taking on iceland they are world cup debutantes so those are looked at as probable mismatches but you're probably going to see two of the teams who are you know favorites to go very deep into this tournament and then you have two matches which have a whole different kind of intrigue you have a potentially very even match between peru and denmark and you know i think both of
8:27 pm
those teams are have an outside chance of also going deep in this tournament if things go their way then also you have croatia and nigeria two teams who at times in the past have had very good world cups at times they've had very disappointing world cups it's a bit of a wildcard match in that respect i would not be shocked to see either of those teams get as far as you know the last eight or get bounced in the group stage so i think that's going to be the biggest question mark and perhaps the biggest surprise of tomorrow's matches and some they have of course is our big day yes germany facing mexico we'll see how that goes all right thank you so much matt always a pleasure talking to you thanks a lot as you're watching news we still have a lot more to tell you about to hear is what's coming up the ashes of we're now on british business is stephen hawking are laid to rest in westminster abbey in london where he takes his place alongside other giants of science including isaac new. and

8:31 pm
serious crisis to hit miracles three month old coalition government. and the issue of migration also top the agenda at a meeting between the leaders of france and italy french president and many on my call once migration policy reforms arguing that europe's response to mass migration has not adapted to the times italian prime minister just epic on to says he is working on a proposal for what he called a radical paradigm change to migration management while the two leaders had a dispute over italy's refusal to allow a rescue ship with more than six hundred refugees to dock in an italian ports this week. all right let's check in now with max hoffman who is covering this by lateral let me to him he is outside the palace in paris where this talk of these talks took place the maxim that they patched things up. police at the outside they patched things up they were very keen on trying to show
8:32 pm
that they're on the same page here and i called the french president said that he really deeply hopes that the two countries france and italy will work hand in the head to solve the most pressing issues and those are of course the migration crisis that we've been talking about but also the convergence of the euro zone. now america saying that this issue is not about to go away and it remains a hot button issue for a definitely the months to come these two leaders seem to have very different perspectives on the role of the e.u. they have very different perspectives on many things but if you look on the migration the issues they might not be as far apart in spite of what happened this week than many people think because what italy is demanding from other countries is solidarity because they of course are having most migrants arriving on their shores at the moment and the solidarity principle is something that not only i get back of
8:33 pm
the german chancellor once but also the french president call so they seem to be working in the same direction here but other topics not so much when it comes to solidarity in the euro zone for example of a completely different topic if you look at what this italian government is promising its citizens in spite of a mountain of debt that they have this is clearly something that will upset all the other member states because it might trigger the next financial crisis at least that's what many financial experts in the european union think and that was the date of his max hoffman reporting from paris in london the ashes of the renowned physicist stephen hawking have been laid to rest in westminster abbey he joined some of the giants of science in turn there including isaac newton and charles darwin well hawking died in march at the age of seventy six after decades of living with a debilitating motor neuron condition. for

a man who lived as an atheist a religious sendoff might have been considered and usual but stephen hawking's memorial was as much about science as it was about his life on his gravestone was the inscription here lies what was mortal of stephen hawking a picture of a black hawk and one of the most famous equations in physics. friends and family who gathered at westminster abbey read moving messages of and about the esther physicist. let's. be genuine. hate what is evil hope faster what is good love for one another with mutual affection outdo one another is showing honor do not like in seal beach argentine spirit serve the lord. recently been diagnosed with genitive disease and told he might not survive

to finish his ph d. . after this diagnosis is expectations dropped to zero he later said everything that happened afterwards was a bonus and was a triumph of his life as big. as hawking's remains were laid to rest the european space agency in spain beamed to hawkings voice into a black hole as a message of peace and hope. the. moon the moon. stephen hawking's ashes and now buried in london next to some of the world's great geniuses a fitting resting place for one of this generation's greatest minds.
8:36 pm
right helena joins me now to take a closer look at a billionaire president not in the u.s. the u.s. whatever trump might say you know we're talking about the czech republic because the czech republic has gone and got one as well he could finally have a government behind him after eight months soft and inconclusive election now the billionaire andrei by the shans been struggling to find coalition partners for his centrist forty the social democrats are set to agree to a deal but any government will still depend on the communists. bread for prague straight out of the factory belonging to the country's prime minister and. the bread factory with its two hundred seventy employees belongs to agro fat a business success story for bobbish i prefer that as a yearly turnover of one point five billion euros the company's interests extend far beyond bread but it keeps its cards close to its chest only reluctantly giving a statement on the prime minister's involvement. hasn't been responsible for that
8:37 pm
since january two thousand and fourteen when he joined the government finance minister and now that he's heading up the government he's no longer with agro fat his share in the company has been transferred into a trust fund in other words mr bush has no part in agra fancy daily business. directly opposite the company headquarters the main office of the political party founded by bobbish is now the biggest political force in the czech parliament andrei bobbish is estimated to be worth around three billion euros was many czech people are concerned that so much wealth and political power concentrated in just a few hands in early june thousands of people took to the streets to protest against what they call an oligarchy. the anti bobbish protests were organized by a group of students. his holding which is now managed by his wife and by his
8:38 pm
close friends burned during prohibition spangles in government during four years. one and a half billion of euro and is the same amount his holding earned during twenty years before together. the activists say agra fat has acquired the most important newspapers in the country turning them into propaganda instruments. the senior editors have all left the papers and are now working independently. under a publishers or interests in health agriculture and commission and first two businesses are very much dependent on the state and the legislation of the state many see an indisputable conflict of interests between business activities and his role in politics business consultant otto brown knows the mood among czech business leaders how does he see things developing. the government will continue to align
8:39 pm
itself with the e.u. and the west and there's no danger of the czechs it either. so it's likely the czech republic will stay loyal to the e.u. but it won't adopt the euro as a currency the economy is growing wages are on the rise there seems little reason for andrei bobbish to change track to kenya now in an area known as the flower bed all of africa and lake vashon are the cut flowers industry that generates five percent of kenya's g.d.p. it might sound profitable not to mention beautiful but fishermen say it also causes extensive pollution claiming fertilizers from the fields drain directly into the lakes water is. the problem of hours spent on kenya's lake night. but only a few kilograms of to lobby a caught such a small hall will fetch about one euro the fisherman blame the maker yield on flour farms situated around the lake they say the farms are polluting the lake and
8:40 pm
depleting its water ten years of this has been catastrophic for the environment. why did it go so they've almost completely dried out the lake and their chemicals draining into it have affected the water on it and the perfect or my life there is hardly any fish left so i want to propose one option. there are more than fifty flower farms around the lake that conditions are perfect for growing the region is known for its fertile soil ample sunshine and the readily available water source. a syrian one of the largest flower producers here rejects the fisherman's claims they say they use only half the standard amount of insecticide and rely instead on natural means such as these small beetles to control the pasts attacking these
8:41 pm
roses. in addition the flower producers say they also utilize a closed water system instead of simply pumping used water directly back into the lake. and nothing from the walk of the shark to what they're all doing what they go to the eco system. but also it's safe for us regulars ching into the lake but the flower producers place the blame on small farmers like potato grower paul come on in the form of using what they say that that's what i'm going to be avoided because . they have to improve the top with the. environmental organizations are trying to help the farmers convert to sustainable pest control methods. meanwhile the fishermen bring their paltry catch to market the feud between the flower industry and the small farmers concerns them more and more they want solutions to clean up the lake so their nets can be full of fish
8:42 pm
again. heading back a bit and now we stay in kenya we stay in kenya with an inspirational story because for many growing up in kenya access to decent education is not a given which in turn can have serious repercussions later in life while parents struggle to find enough work to provide for themselves and their family but some of been taking action and returning to the classroom it can be a struggle but as we see in this next report that doesn't stop their determination to create a brighter future. when working with chemical solutions precision is crucial in this chemistry class the students are especially conscientious towards our c.e.o. bob bennett to is toxic this is no ordinary class these tenth grade students are between twenty and fifty years old all of them are here and to get their high school diplomas. melissa is close to reaching her goal
8:43 pm
she's been going to school every weekday for nearly two years the mother of two wants to be a good role model for her children. to have a story to tap into your children and it also by the way they come up this weekend that you didn't get what you waited and you have are you going to tell if you have to do that he loves you like me you know the weeks now when you have a tight. the teachers samuel meena often feels like a child himself most of his students are older than he is he tries to maintain a friendly reporter with the members of his class he knows that many of them have a lot more than school to cope with it is a hot dog because you have a store in the or you hope of responsibilities your from the business your my you just got to do it does not cost easy odds when a fossil is young. melissa and you can relate but she still values the chance to learn. it's what it is it's what it's right to be painful now but it is always
8:44 pm

with air kisses. for them this is the highlight of that cycle that's because the biggest dealers go and they don't just go they bring their best their most desirable their most expensive pieces to show off and unlike in other art fairs people aren't just buyers aren't just strolling through hoping to see something they like you know the sales are choreographed and the sellers are spending weeks in advance courting buyers the opening day is reserved for v.i.p.'s the people with the fattest wallets and basically they're pitted against each other for the best good so it ends up being kind of like an auction enough about the finances for now let's actually take a look at some of the art. almost three billion euros of all it is up for sale at the forty ninth edition of basel they smoke zinc for example by spanish. it has a twenty one million euro price tag. or if abstract oil paintings are more your
