this is. from berlin tonight pulled from the ocean but hung out to drop the fate of hundreds of mine greenstock on ships in the mediterranean italy and malta say they won't allow the boats to dock and bring their human cargo on shore we'll hear from a charity loaded ship is facing and i'm mergence the situation also coming up international monitors criticize the turkish election the o. s. c.e. says that president after one of his party benefited from an even playing field
including biased media culture. and world cup drama as two heavyweights joe also for top spot in group b. spain struggled with morocco and were already out of the tournament. and iran side fighting for progression all the world cup action is coming up. it's good to have you with us tonight the fate of hundreds of migrants rescued from the mediterranean remains uncertain the lifeline a boat operated by a german charity is carrying more than two hundred thirty migrants and has been stuck at sea for days after being turned away from italy european lawmakers visited the boat sunday and they say the situation on board is approaching an emergency and this is not the only ship in limbo between africa and europe with desperate and
vulnerable migrants on board. a cargo ship owned by one of the big issues being companies in the world stranded off the coast of sicily the alexander mask is not only carrying its own freight but also more than one hundred migrants last week the danish vessel was asked by the italian coast guard to rescue the migrants from a boat that was in trouble but with italy refusing to allow the ship to dock it can do nothing but wait. while the alexander mask is still off sicily a german rescue ship is in a similar situation near malta lifeline has picked up more than two hundred thirty migrants including children from the mediterranean but it's also been at sea for several days off to malta spain and italy refused it permission to dock on sunday night
a group of european politicians visited the vessel promising to do all they can just get. the stuff if you want to that you haven't the guts to. put it. the nobody you know you look at it have been all along after being out there you would hear me what. is it going to lead out to us because of course. italy's deputy prime minister material salvage any has visited libya where he discussed the migration crisis he also hit out at the ngo behind the lifeline rescue boat. or should follow the instructions of the libyan the italian coast guards it's not a little ship it must be seized and he pulled two hundred on the crew should be taken into custody. but one of the political wranglings continue these migrants and left at sea watching and waiting for
a decision on their fate to be maimed. as well i'm joined now by telephone with alina crowbar from sea watch it's a nonprofit organization that conducts search and rescue operations in the mediterranean she is at the port in malta and she's been in touch with the staff from lifeline that's that stranded vessel carrying more than two hundred and thirty alina welcome to the show what is deceit to ation on board the lifeline tonight i mean what have you crew and refugees from lifeline what are they told you. all thanks for having me these the situation is quite calm i mean we're in continuous exchange and already brought the price to the ship like medical equipment and so on . it's calm but it's also really overcrowded on the small vessel because i mean two hundred and thirty four people on board and the crew and the situation is tense
especially since most of the people are also seventy unaccompanied minors and they've already been waiting all the screen for days now we understand that european lawmakers they spent the night on sunday on the rescue ship with hundreds of migrants what have they been able to negotiate with italian and maltese authorities concerning permission to dock. well the planetariums told us that they are going to do that best to put pressure on their respective governments however up until now we didn't receive any notice of any country taking responsibility to help these people still listed hoping to get some odd put out of that and that some political pressure might help these people and given italy's urging lifeline to travel to the netherlands how long would that journalist take and i mean it's problematic isn't it. yet isn't actually completely impossible i
mean it would take weeks that would be just in shaming and people need a solution now i mean to graphically italy and all to expose this and it's just making sense to bring them that and afterwards we need a political solution of other countries to hate these people and so ok alina crowbars joining us from sea watch tonight at the port in malta alina thank you very much. thank you. and here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world are police in france have arrested ten people with alleged links to the radical far right officials say the individuals were planning to carry out attacks on muslims the suspects were captured at the weekend in operations of hall's friends including here on the island of corsica rescue crews in thailand say they believe twelve boys trapped in a flooded cave are still alive the boys and their soccer coach have been missing
since saturday rising floodwaters have frustrated efforts to locate them but rescuers believe the group is holding out in a larger cavern deep inside the complex monsoon season is wreaking havoc in india this was the aftermath of a storm that hit the nation's financial capital mumbai the regional rains have also triggered severe flash floods in india and neighboring bangladesh more than twenty people have been killed and over a million displaced. well he won but it was not fair that is the conclusion from european election monitors about the election victory of turkey's red chip. the o.e.c.d. says that excessive media coverage and the state of emergency gave president a quote undue advantage everyone was reelected in sunday's election with more than fifty percent of the vote he is said to assume sweeping new powers that could see his hold on power last another decade. to
a new political landscape on monday but still very familiar longstanding leader of the one cemented his hold on power winning a further five years in office. but as turks digested the news election monitors from the organization for security and cooperation in europe expressed doubts about how fair the presidential and parliamentary elections had been. this is not and we didn't regard it as being an equal playing field. in relation to media and he wasn't and neither in relation to campaigning either the defeated presidential candidate condemned the elections as unfair from start to finish but here today they want to concentrate on uniting a deeply divided country so mr. as of today please do not act like the president after a k. party be the president for eighty five million people embrace everyone.
that's a message will resonate with a lot of turkish voters many of whom were devastated by the results. only twenty five this is a very beautiful country. i want to live in this country. but as a young woman everything is in danger it's becoming harder to live here women aren't respected and the education system is upside down. but all those were happy that the one hundred one many destroyed the result was a win for democracy and for the country ninety seven i believe that this is a good result for our country as our president says no stopping continue on the path this is by step is you get a. sense make the best man win and we voted this turned out to be the best so we had to different expectations but it didn't happen everything happened for
the best. even. when russia is in a new political system under which he becomes head of state and government at one insists this will bring prosperity and stability to the country following a failed coup two years ago but critics say the new system will further erode democracy in turkey. and i'm joined now by julie hahn she's standing by in the turkish capital ankara tonight good evening to you julia i mean this is a sweeping victory for mr heir to one his coalition also secured a big jordi in parliament so can we talk about turkey now being headed by one man. well this is certainly what many people fear here they clearly say this is the end of democracy one young lady told me yesterday that there are already no civil rights year there is no freedom of
opinion and this is only getting worse under the new political system so she basically said the only chance i see is leaving the country and going into exile. after we have the final results by the end of the month of these changes that you just described will kick in missed out on just to give you a few examples all of the sweeping new powers he will get he'll be able to appoint and fire ministers he can disclose paul humans he can call for new elections he will have a significant sway over choosing senior judges so he will be the center of political power soon and many observers here are saying there are no signs that he will ease down that he'll become less aggressive that he will suddenly release thousands of people from jail to the country that he will make full use of these new sweeping powers and with those powers you could understand if he doesn't really care what
the outside critics may have to say but nevertheless the monitors they expressed criticism about the campaign they said that there was unbalanced reporting they said the restrictions under the state of emergency does all of this mean that mr ed a once victory as strong as it may appear is actually tainted. well that's certainly not what he would have made or what he would say i remember last year's wote when he told international observers to know their place these observers today very clearly criticize the conditions of the votes calling it and an equal playing field but if you look at these conditions a state of emergency which gives police at power has limits the right to assembly many critical voices journalists academicians in jail many lawmakers off the opposition parties as well most of the media under government control owned by
companies close to the government if you consider all of that it's actually pretty astonishing that miss out on only get got fifty two percent of the vote that almost fifty percent of the people here are not standing behind him there's a very good point and it begs the question then how divided is turkey today. oh it's a very divided society a polarized society and i think that is missing out on is the reason for that so you have his supporters on the one hand to him very loyal to him who love him who celebrate now who see him as his their their savior their survival basically and the other halls of the population hates him they say he is an autocrat and he is leading this country into a talk recy. in the turkish capital ankara. thank you very much. all right daniel is here now with more on what are the winds victory means
for turkey's economy as well there's been a mixed reaction and suddenly the economy is quite mixed as well and at first it seemed invest as we're taking the election result well that is until the mirror lost its gains from the election day worries remain that economic views are simply too unconventional politically he may be unstoppable but can he rein in the unstable economy. after the election many turks hope stability will rule the day and the president added one would continue his current economic policies. you can't beat it will there will be economic stability in the country there has to be . that been a lot of volatility in the markets now it's over at least the elections are over. six as you asked me whether the euro or dollar will increase i think the depreciation the leader will continue. with that but turkey's currency the leader
is under pressure due in part to worries about everyone's efforts to consolidate power and fears that he could seek to influence the country's interest rates fears that are having global repercussions. foreign investors are withdrawing their funds from our country which is leading to depreciation of the leader of the dollar is rising day by day i think the situation will get worse now that the elections are over inflation has soared to double digits and turkey's trade deficit is increasing because the country needs to import more products than it can sell abroad adding to its woes. if you see also some structural reforms turkey is not doing. this in the last. two or two years so if we see the economy management returning back to implementation implantation of the policies and also you know with the rebalancing and with the state of emergency
i think the pressure on the needs a realistic proposition according to many experts they say the risk to turkey's economy have grown in recent months. u.s. treasury secretary steven minucci has denied reports that the united states is specifically targeting chinese firms its crackdown on foreign acquisitions of u.s. tech following reports to the contrary in two major outlets nugent tweeted the stories on investment restrictions in bloomberg in the wall street journal are false fake news he went on to say that plans to impose investment restrictions will apply to all countries accused of trying to steal u.s. technology the final announcement of the policy is june at the end of the week and then scott is on wall street for us with more on this so yes the word from the treasury is that they're not singling out china but are investors buying that
explanation. well even if they're buying this explanation that doesn't necessarily make things better right because not not just china but also other markets and potential investors of would be limited to the u.s. tech industry is one idea circulating is that on one side investments into the u.s. to get knology industry might be limited on the other side also exports of signal logy out of the united states could be controlled more also a restricted we did see quite a reaction here on wall street gucci of goosing by more than three hundred points nine out of the past ten trading days actually blue chips lost value and especially technology shares a gutted hard two year at the beginning of the new week well despite strong opposition from investors and from abroad it seems approval of trump economic
policies at home has grow well actually donald trump for his second nomic policy receives the highest approval rate since he started office and if you're a look at the poll that was published by the n.b.c. fifty four percent of the to the president's participants said that the economy isn't good or even excellent shape that's the highest reading that we've got on this poll since this started about ten years ago or for example the unemployment rate is almost at the lowest level in almost fifty years of consumer sentiment remains on an elevated basis and so at least when it comes to the u.s. economy most americans seem to be unhappy with the current administration seems trying to tough stance on trade and economic policies and pressuring american gent called thank you very much for that. argentina is caught up in the midst of
a crippling general strike they're frustrated at the government's plan to call on the help of the its national monetary fund. so they the international monetary fund provided argentina access to fifty billion dollars in funds should they need it but the citizens are having none of it. deserted airports and not a single traveler waiting at the check in desks and bus stations that seem abandoned it's not because argentinians are sitting in front of their t.v. sets watching leno messy at the world cup no it's because argentina is in the midst of a massive general strike. even schools and banks and hospitals are closed for twenty four hours the powerful c g t union called for the strike and thousands of demonstrators filled the streets of buenos aires calling for wage negotiations with no upper limit but the administration of marie sue mccree once wage increases capped at fifteen percent despite an annual inflation rate of twenty six percent.
in this must be the beginning of a real fight i cannot and here we much the feet mccree and drive out the i.m.f. which is the only way for us the workers to turn the situation around. argentina's finance ministry estimates the strike will cost the economy around nine hundred million euros. and we have back to germany now and the case that rang alarm bells he had brant is exactly right daniel a berlin court has sentenced a teenage refugee for virtually and physically assaulting two men wearing jewish skullcaps now the men wore the kippah and they taped it hoping to reassure a friend he was worried about anti semitism when they ended up filming their attacker and that video went viral and sparked fears that germany could again be plagued by its worst prejudices. the court pronounced the case unequivocally as a hate crime the defendant
a nineteen year old syrian refugee has been sentenced to four weeks of youth detention for assault and verbal abuse he has already served the time during pretrial custody this video shows the syrian lashing a young arab israeli man wearing a key part or skull cap with a belt the perpetrator is seen insulting the young man and using derogatory language to brand him jewish the arab israeli film the incident which took place in mid april he posted it online a few days later the perpetrator turned himself in. the arab israeli wearing the keypad told which avella he felt intimidated and humiliated at the time. the incident attracted wide attention in germany and beyond and unleashed a wave of consternation as well as solidarity for jews living in this country demonstrations attracted two thousand people wearing skullcaps to show their support. the head of the central council of jews in germany yosef schuster has
welcome to today's verdict. all the first groups have been decided at the world cup and joining me here in the studio to discuss the latest is. from sports good to see you are had a dramatic in the both games in group b. to let's start with the match between spain and morocco it was so dramatic i stink i think i'm still shaking it actually happened as people thought these were going to be easy games for spain and portugal to take the lead and go into the knockout stages but it ended up being a lot more close because as you can see here spain conceded a very early goal from morocco that gave them a lead and suddenly everything seemed open again because of spain were to lose or might be consolation for that one go through but it didn't take long they equalised before half time. which made it one all and saw the spanish go through again and america scored another shocking one just put them on the brink of elimination again
. and spain scored another one which made it to all in the end and it was just narrow enough that they made it through put them on five points which still could have cost them the next stages if things would have gone differently in the other game you know what about portugal and iran that had people in the news room also holding their breath yeah i mean again this was supposed to be a clear deal for his general and portugal but it was and it looked set that way because portugal took the lead in this one they had a one zero question resource year koresh most sport a fantastic group is just beautiful to watch and everything with set of course it was the first goal that was not scored by christiane rinaldo for portugal at this world cup and she even had a chance to score from this penalty later on but kris jenner an older missed which is why things got really close because in injury time at the very end iran had a penalty they celebrated because they still had chances to go through but in the end it wasn't enough so spain and portugal are through in this group what about the
whole russia i mean they finally met their match in the game against uruguay did yeah russia had a fantastic start into the tournament but against or why it was really really difficult and that was from the start were why i just took the as you can see here louis suarez the f.c. barcelona striker she showed the russians how he scores goals just from the beautiful free kick right there. and then the second goal wasn't quite as impressive because it was a shot that was deflected by the most cherished of things got really bad for the russians here because their player igor small because he got a second yellow card meaning they have to play with ten men and then they conceded the third goal that means three zero four that means whereby was at the top of the group russia they're still in a good spot there still through to the next round but maybe the hype is a little bit down right now actually my colleagues in moscow they spoke to people on the ground during and after the game so let's have a look at what they have to say. you are i.
was that hit me that we have the world cup here. oh no no today we take him over this way but maybe tomorrow it through the degree. was. my hope that we'll do better and maybe this time russian food bowl will be better than yours so i think it's fair that we love. was second places like. are open instead if i know because we can make up. our game when we zero their russian
fans are confident but well what a disappointing into the world cup for mohamed salah yeah i mean we can see it right here dad the best season of his life so far with liverpool i think you want thirty four individual honors a season and he was so hyped up to be the big sensation at the world cup but his team couldn't perform to the same standard as he could and so egypt are out in the first in the group he said in two it all right there for him really russia thank you very much. here's a reminder of the top stories that we're following for you european election monitors and criticize president everyone's election victory in turkey o.s.c. monitors say that erda won in his ruling party had a quote undue advantage including in media coverage everyone was reelected as president with more than half of the vote says hundreds of migrants rescued from the mediterranean are trapped on two ships off the coast of europe italy and malta have refused him the right to dock and bring people assume. you're watching.
