which killed at least thirty eight people while risk your search for any more survivors families of the victims have paid respects to their loved ones head of the state funeral tomorrow both italy's president says giamatti and prime minister just said because they will attend the ceremony the country has declared saturday a national day of mourning. meanwhile italy's transport ministry has opened an investigation into the bridges collapse but that might not be enough to play a kid public anger. shall acho simple spoke with italians wondered about the condition of the countries on the bridges. this is a scene replicated across this region. nestled in mountains in the shadow of towering concrete structures living in one such home as retired construction worker johnny has been here for thirty years for him the branch had long just been part of the scenery but now he's looking at its very differently.
8:10 pm
i am a little more worried but first i thought they would have closed temporarily after the moran the bridge collapsed and that they would have checked it properly this hasn't happened and i believe this was careless. humor and the bridge is just a short drive from here its collapse is made reassess just how safe this is. because i've been thinking for years that something could suddenly happen to this bridge because i believe that the pillars probably only have about sixty percent of the. compared to what. so. it's not just residents living underneath structures like this who are now concerned it's also the drivers who paul say that bridges like this every day everybody images of the bridge crumbling cannot help but picture that when you're
8:11 pm
driving across. bridges like this one and then not just across. the whole of it there are many people now. that cannot happen to me like the ill fated brain chair many units were built in the fifty's and sixty's they would have designed to withstand the amount of traffic passing over them today and as one expert tells me many were only ever expected to have a fifty year lifespan. or. we tend to forget. that becomes. us and this situation should be control of the much better we have to allocate the money from the beginning to be sure that we are the possibility of controlling volution of our structure in other countries viscosity is very very strong you need. he's growing but probably is not enough strong the company operating the marandi bridge insists
8:12 pm
its maintenance checks were up to date back on the outskirts of genoa giani says regular maintenance work is also being done here but for him that's now another reason to worry. the fact that there's so much maintenance means it's not really necessary to run after so many years fifty sixty seventy years maybe we have to consider building a new bridge. after such experts say the safety of infrastructure across the country must be reviewed in many cases they maintenance work will only delay the inevitable emergence of more bridges not fit for purpose that. funny for children to be now in turkey still in a volatile situation funny that's true because the turkish the rest taken another plunge following a brief midweek recovery for u.s. president don't trump regenerated his top position turkey and threatened new sanctions the dollar and the euro both gained around five percent against the new

responsibility for those attacks spanish authorities have dismantled the cell with its members either killed or arrested but sixteen people were killed on those terrorist attacks and more than one hundred injured. survivors and families of the victims of last year's terror attack on the bus alone or remember those who lost their lives. it's still difficult. and for the families of the victims hard to accept. it was very hard especially at first to not think if they had just spent another minute at lunch or if he had been standing two feet over from where he was or if their plans had been different or they had all gone to the beach instead of walking on the streets of la rambla. but i also know that. life is like that. and there
8:20 pm
is never going to be an answer for those questions those killed or injured came from thirty four different countries for this french tourists was severely injured but survived the attack the memories a painful left on a fortune over the last and hoping that the first time i'm in this hospital bed i realize that nothing moves in alone may i try moving my legs as money makes don't move and i try moving my arms off and not moving eva and icons talk and then the awareness that i will stay like that oh my life things are stopped and nothing will change talk of self us alone as many people are united in their grief it is their mission will be a see and from the following day people went out on the streets to say we were not afraid and that the terrorists were not going to infect us with the hatred that we weren't going to distrust our neighbors and was wearing going to criminalize a certain culture as was and that made

a strong use force bus alone as city hall had said ahead of the memorial that it wanted to avoid political controversy but in catalonia it's hard to avoid politics . king felipa the sixth of spain attending the memorial is trisha sized catalonia spit for independence in the past and has low support in the region. there was also division on the streets as cuts alone separatists protested the king's presence. the focus today however. on presenting. the german cup football tournament kicks off tonight and goes on over the weekend emily rushes from good obvious sports desk joins me welcome emily lovely to see you again well almost everybody knows a bit about the bundesliga is but one of the german got to explain that to us and why is this such huge interest in the german cup in germany as well as outside i
8:22 pm
mean it's a very very interesting competition it's a knockout competition so one game that's all that matters and everything can happen and if we have a look at the match ups we can see last season's business leader runner up childcare for example taking on fourth tier shine for this evening a newly promoted nurnberg will face six division links while tiny asil and its temporarily expanded stadium that holds seven thousand fans will host powerhouse look why. these players are kaiserslautern legends they were all part of a powerhouse club and part of germany's world cup winning team in one thousand nine hundred fifty four nowadays the squad has players with the best second division experience more than twenty players left when kaiserslautern dropped into the third tier the end of last season in the wooden league. fifty percent of your revenue when you go down to the third division that makes it incredibly difficult to
8:23 pm
maintain a good team. at the moment the club is fifteenth in the third division table. now they host hoffenheim in the german cup twenty years ago kaiserslautern were born in this league champions hoffenheim just a local village club the tables have turned. the cost of expanding their stadium for the two thousand and six world cup saddle kaiserslautern with big debts and soon the club was swapping europa league football for the second division bosses came and went but mismanagement proved constant and last season the club was relegated once more. ludicrous the fact that it's now hoffenheim the recent upstart from the region bringing the bonus league it back to kaiserslautern is met with mixed feelings. ronson of course fourteen terms it's an enormous challenge to play a champions league side it's not the kind of big name club that we would expect to
8:24 pm
sell out the stadium for but still it's abundance league at champions league level team against a third division team but that's what's so interesting about football that a sensation is always possible in a game like this one as in south america is a sensation used to mean bringing home the world cup now a victory against hoffenheim would qualify in cases louts and footballing dreams have become arcade lee more modest. yeah and this is why this tournament is so great i mean there are so many surprises that can happen this is a randomly drawn event so these small teams can play against these big powerhouses and often they're fighting for a year just to qualify for this tournament to get the chance to play against one of these top teams i know that sounds exciting because by and by to by this thing of a smaller team which yeah they were up to some asshole with that's right and this should cruise through this one specially you know within brand new court that will give him a chance then to take the team and take some of the newcomers in one experience because into the team yeah definitely i mean on the paper there's absolutely no
8:25 pm
doubt that by and have to make it through this round one key aspect for coach will be to give money another chance in goal some more minutes under his belt and regain his confidence his top form in goal because he missed most of last season as we all know and then you also given the chance to rotate through some not newer or younger players might get somewhere minutes and there's buzz well he's the new signing from . this season and then also kingsley c'mon cornton to list all these players that usually don't get to start during the regular season games or in the higher games they might get to show their worth during this game and they weigh what about hamburg and they have a long proud history of football but last season they were relegated for the first time one of the chances this time will they make it beyond the first round of the german cup i mean they're really gave out of german top tier football was i mean incredible i mean no one thought that was actually going to happen and surely there's a big black cloud hanging over hamburg right now and they haven't been really successful in the cup in the past years either three out of the last four times
8:26 pm
they fell out in the first round already last year against us in the book it was the start of a horrible season for them this season didn't start quite as well for them either they lost against kenya in their first game ever and the second one is to go so surely they'll want to take this game regain confidence win it and just get on to the next round in the something is an exciting tournament because so many of these match ups could bring any kind of result absolutely and many rushes from us forces thank you very much for your expertise. ok turning from football to tennis and to men's tennis in a radical make over for the davis cup beginning next year the cup will be decided by a season ending tournament instead of a season long tone of one of the davis cup fans a long and storied history as a team tournament with clare's representing their countries but it's not just some of its shine over the us and the international tennis by the recent decided. on the

8:31 pm
south africa own seventy two percent of that land even though whites make up only eight percent of the population black south africans comprise more than eighty percent of the country a lot of this land was taken from black south africans. during apartheid however since its end in the early ninety's the real distribution of land has often been neglected a promise the elected rest successive south african governments but some analysts say with elections due next year political parties are seizing on the issue for political gain sometimes though this has had deadly consequences have a look at this report. this is not an easy return for johan angle breast a few months ago his parents were rolled and brutally murdered here we suspect that the attackers got my father she was outside your boss on his way to church.
8:32 pm
they got him outside they brought him back into the house that gate in the. hall was a lot since my mother was staying at home but the attackers punched in another door to reach. so there was a struggle here my dad fought them at that point we suspected that they couldn't. get control over my dad so they they stab him in the throat a couple of times the seventy eight year old and his wife had no chance and this is with me where i found them. he was lying here on his back. this is the so israel was covered in blood and my mother was an extreme tied up but she was also slit. the foam in south africa's houten province was bought by yuan father. the elderly couple lived just
8:33 pm
a few hundred meters from their son and his family. corn cattle and wild game were produced on the thousand hectare site but now operations are at a standstill the way forward unclear. murders like this one have become all too common in south africa the commercial farmers union town says eighty two people have been murdered in the last year alone most of them white farmers or. the mood here is tense the attacks of opened up old wounds white farmers still own seventy two percent of private farmland despite making up just eight percent of the population. it's the legacy of apartheid when black south africans were systematically dispossessed of their land and disenfranchised the resulting socio economic inequality remains palpable to this day. some farmers have formed their own community watch groups
8:34 pm
patrolling together to protect themselves and their property the most isolated farms from the easiest targets police protection far from guaranteed. the tellings that the police have is that they don't have the resources that they need they don't have the manpower they need they don't have. the training that they need in all of these different aspects play a role in in effect of policing many of these patrols a coordinated by africa forum a group that lobbies for the rights of white south africans it believes the increasing number of farm attacks is not just criminally but also racially motivated. or very strong racial slurs being made towards victims and very often we'll hear things like we take our lead and or you wife and then they'll say something derogatory towards white victims we

also see that the majority of crew that are organs white trick to one of the current political climate in south africa could be fueling such attacks although there's no concrete evidence they're motivated by racism julius malema or the leader of the far left e.-f. f. party regularly speaks out against whites their birds are probably ruled by. the word no mara burbled rob what are your words not women who are not grouped by. such words aren't just confined to the political extremes of all in a.n.c. party is pursuing a so-called land redistribution plan in which farmers must turn over. that and without compensation. and to recognize we took the historic position that expropriation of land without compensation should be among the key mechanisms
8:36 pm
of a liberal to the government to give effect to lend reform and redistribution. to move appears to be politically motivated the a.n.c. could lose its majority and next is actions it hopes the policy will persuade many black voters to overlook the party's failings which over the years have been numerous observers say has been very very weak political leadership there's been a for an absolute absence of policy direction there's been poor budgets there's been political mismanagement and there's been corruption thousands of black south africans are waiting for their families lands to be returned to them many effect claims are yet to be processed those who have been given their land back have for the most part received no government support many of those farms have failed now the land lies barren. shamima coca has leased

a seven hundred hectare site for the past twelve years he says the state's provided no support and is only just scraping by. the officer still don't know anything about a cult so we need to go support the financial support as is the case for many black farmers who don't own the land they work he can't get credit without loans he can't write off bad harvests or invest i want to have to put some pervert's on. fifty helped us so that i can improve my production and have double could be on the symlin the bank first to do so. can we have total did. support small blacks receiving experience land but he says they need to be properly trained. people must go to the colleges learn what is happening otherwise we're not going to do anything all those productive loans will grow weed
8:38 pm
the government says that the land seizures must not jeopardise agricultural production but how they can avoid that is unclear. south africa's bloody and divided history continues to haunt it to this day. and for more i'm joined now by journalist two so he joins me live from joburg in south africa and welcome to now the issue of land extra proved seizures is controversial an explosive any indication from the government with it plans to go ahead with it. what we know from here is that. the government official and also the in-situ person a saint anthony family has more than twelve thousand their tears they're going to take the excess of that so this is what we know and this is what the government is planning now and the party a saint is going to do it legally by introducing
8:39 pm
a bill in parliament and making sure no one is able to challenge that so now is that n.c. is writing itself to take the farms boss once it is nick and they will take the farms and once they do that then redistributed through to the populous south africa and a lot of people seem to be going to waiting for n.z. to make a move so the question is why now president at all of course that has said the government will push to amend the constitution to enable land seizures without compensation is this a populist move ahead of elections there are only two reasons for this one is pollute kind in one the pressure from the masses the economic freedom fighters which is a very powerful opposition party in parliament or without number of problems people lend to say it will be people then and if it's in c. stands a movement does nothing about it does want to lose votes so this is trying to counter
8:40 pm
that step by promising people land and saying we are the republicans agreed to and also on the other side we have seen very valid and lind occupations and protests in south africa people protesting for weeks saying we want less influence it did with that they have no end of the option of the trade to get those arrested but it is not the way so now they are saying look give them a list let us do it legally by changing the constitution but it are to say this is a very complex and vexed issue is it a risk then that south africa will descend into the kind of economic turmoil the reason bombay did after land expropriation is that. the gun in the senate is not going to go is a mob and stand it is going to do it or die and he got in from a person who's been on record saying they're not going to allow people to freely and within the occupying it but the challenge is that what the government says and what the people do might be two different things we don't know if these farmers are
8:41 pm
really in need of land in order to farm or just to have it and we don't know where that is what the capacity to do the production that are needed to feed the national so it's a question that needs to answered but by the end of the game soon because we're seeing the lead was taken from them forcefully by the sec last by the court in a sense and it is now time to help with this thing mandela give too much to these people so they now want it back to say they want inequalities to stop and they think by empowering themselves with land or this the problems that they're facing economy can be are going to end and many less to this issue are to still call milo in jail but in south africa a pleasure to talk to you never. let's now turn to you again they were popular opposition politician has been allegedly tortured and beaten after being arrested by the military robert kabal on the army's lawyer says he was unable to speak here or stand when he was produced in

very impressive near there what happened before police got there so probably why i'm alive but again everything for what he did repeatedly going through april to be whining told the media that the member of parliament is in bad shape following the torture that he has gone through his loyalty to the mayor of kampala three percent in three of the wind. maybe core help but the military three three how pick a party to keep carroll the member of parliament so far that's what we know to be funny three poppy meat treatment but the military three kate is well taken care of . and this one line is this was a very charismatic and popular singa why is he being tried in a military court and how do people there viewed his arrest. in uganda when it comes to put the same illegal firearm things to do we fire. associated with the
8:44 pm
military and chances are high that will be tracked to the military court for the war in iraq when the may not be there for six to appear before the military court over related charges so that the prosecutors are looking at the same grounds to try bob in line after putting these allegations this accusation but again that he would fall in position of illegal firearms so the reason why he's being tried in the military court is because of this fire otherwise perhaps if you wouldn't fall on the legal firearm maybe you want their pin among you have a team that was brought to this civil court and charged with treason right. from the ugandan capital company thank you very much for that live update. ok i think it's time now to move over to business news and i have funny for chad
