4:01 pm
emerges from its final bailout program athens will now be able to tap into money on the financial markets for the first time. and critics once again jodi indonesia killing at least a dozen people in the trade most coming just two weeks off the last day of grace. class and the next sixty minutes of the all we all know the video game is a multibillion your industry and we know that kids sometimes play video games when they shouldn't bought in one high school in jakarta the troops in fact e-sports gets past the. plague. of a will welcome to you i'm. dozens of elderly south koreans are in north korea for long awaited reunions with family members they bring together relatives who were divided after the korean war
4:02 pm
nearly seven decades ago the reunions were approved by the leaders of the two koreas a historic summit in april part of a recent thought and relations. they can finally embrace each other after decades apart. many of them are parents and children brothers and sisters who sometimes struggle to recognise each other after such a long separation. sister sister my sister you've gone through so much. it's a bittersweet moment despite being able to meet these family members who only have eleven hours to spend together. and for these eighty nine elderly south koreans this may be the very last time they can travel to north korea to see their relatives time is taking its toll many have become too old with both koreas
4:03 pm
technically still at war chances of seeing each other are also rare reunions like this have only taken place twenty times since two thousand apart from the state sanctioned get togethers there is no way to contact each other phone calls and letters are prohibited by. that's what makes this meeting so precious even if it's short at least for now they can put aside the sorrow of being a part and live in the moment. joining me now is journalist jen quanah she's in the south korean capital seoul jen we saw some very emotional scenes of elderly north and south koreans meeting give us a sense of what happens at these reunions how they planned what happens there. for the past decade there was only four time that people were allowed to needs it was always ping pong when there are tensions between north and south korea government more favorable with north korea eighteen people were finally allowed to meet their
4:04 pm
family members after sixty years in the next two to three days the family will be allowed to meet but it will be only allowed leavened hours in a controlled environment to talk with each other if you think they were apart for sixty years in a total different environment and you can see how much of a different person they became. so for years and years of hostile division some of the are now got together how significant how important are these reunions for the families of the two koreas. there are still five thousand fifty seven thousand people waiting to meet their family members and in order to make this happen we need to under the times more of these family reunions however this never comes and really easily. what the families. might be their only chance to meet with their family members and all control the presence that they bring the things that
4:05 pm
they can talk it's all controlled by the government and specially because of the north korean side. and jim we also saw the need is of north and south korea hug each other at a historic summit earlier this year so there's also a large a diplomatic soul that is happening what's the progress there. well came down and started talks and finally it's in a positive sense before with our former government it was more hostility toward north korea so it seems like there's less tensions however we have to see how it develops whether if it's something tangible something that brings more positive air we have the asian games that north korea and south korea enter together we have now seeing family reunion. and would see kim jong un for the third time next september the date has not been set yet hopefully there will be more progress right small positive steps we don't know where that leave but thank you very much jen kwon

4:07 pm
mahmood qureshi said it was important for the two countries to talk to each other relations between pakistan and india have been hostile ever since independence from britain in one hundred forty seven particularly over the divided territory of kashmir. bens got business and joins me now the greek bailout odyssey ben is finally over it's been a saga but it's over greece emerging today from the last of its three bailout programs athens is dependent on aid from the european union european central bank and international monetary fund the loans amounted to two hundred sixty billion euros. finally no more aid packages and no more funding requirements but the last eight years have been tough for greece and brought drastic cost cutting measures many greeks lost their jobs and their homes income has fallen by a third on average the taxes however remain time for most people it will be a long time before the situation improves and some people don't even believe it's
4:08 pm
possible like this silversmith. but also because you know personally for me in the coming years i don't see any hope everything looks bleak to me. because he sees the middle of the great crisis brought down me and thousands of people in my position women weren't interested in buying our clothes anymore and as a result my manufacturing company closed we started this combined cafeteria and many market he hopes he'll soon gain a foothold again many people in greece are trying to fight their way through. it because like i pin my hopes on something better even if we've left the bailout program i believe we greeks will be paying for years to come but we all hope for something better hope dies last. and the government knows there's still plenty to do even with all the loans paid off. does that make more needs to be john starting with the tax system which isn't business friendly right now the justice system must
4:09 pm
deliver decisions faster that will have a direct influence on attracting investment on the whole thing should become more european the state should provide key services greece still has a huge mountain of debt to the tune of three hundred fifty billion euros they'll be dealing with that for a long time to come. and in his response to grace's ban that exit european commissioner for economic affairs pm muscovy stressed the country's reforms have laid the foundations for a sustainable recovery and brussels bureau chief maxwell frank caught up with him. commissioner now the commission says this is a new chapter for greece but it seems like for regular people in greece it's more of the same high unemployment high taxes bad pensions would you agree no i don't i think that we are really opening a new chapter that the situation in greece has already improved a lot including unemployment which has diminished from twenty seven percent to less
4:10 pm
than twenty percent i know that these are still high it's much too high but i think that now the. structures that we have built in greece make this country capable to recover attractiveness to attract investors to be competitive and to create a lot of jobs and that's what i expect that the now the people in greece will really see that the efforts to have been taking bear fruit let's not be mistaken it's not because there was austerity that there is a crisis in greece it's because there has been terrible crises that we need to have a more solid structures for economy and society in greece but you've hinted in the past that maybe there was too much austerity is that the biggest mistake that the e.u. made something that should not be repeated let's say for italy i think that what the biggest mistake is what we underestimated the depth of the crisis we thought that the you wards were solid and they were really very fragile and yes at some moments we were too tough on austerity we finally i think found the right balance.
4:11 pm
took too long. well. let's say that we could have balanced better a study very t. an effort but well all in all i'm convinced that we made the right decisions and that it was the right track for greece to reform and for us to agree through a program which represents two hundred and seventy three billion euros which proves that we where alongside the greek people and some people say italy is going to be the next greece they have a huge mountain of debt do you feel like the new italian government is up to the task to prevent anything like happen in greece from happening in italy the station is of course very different funding a member a few are also there in the eurozone from the start that doesn't make them immune to all the problems it's just third largest country in the eurozone and the sort of
4:12 pm
largest g.d.p. new zone it's a very creative economy and the debt is in the pocket of the italian people for quite a lot but still we need to be very careful about the level of public debt one hundred thirty percent this has to be here really money to control and this is why we need to have still sound public finances you need to lead and we'll have to discuss with he doesn't government in this european semester on the draft which are to plan by october in a very serious way and i'm ready to do that that's a huge date coming up there but again let me repeat the question do you think that the current italian government is up to the task of preventing a catastrophe from happening in italy like in greece i know that. or are you telling governments that they finally will find the way they will miles of through and the fact will be in the budget i cannot judge on programs i don't
4:13 pm
want to judge on words i want to judge on. the facts taken facts and measures and budgets commissioner thank you very much for talking to us. let's pull in it all foamy professor of international economics of the university of st gallen to comment on this is in switzerland for us what would you say greece and its bailout a success story or effect. greece's speculates on feet to be has access to the finance markets. at least today that's the successful to see cross government what about tomorrow when all those pensioners realize there isn't that much money in the pension pot. access to the financial market of course is due to the fact it's greece's now. it has modest repayment obligations and some sort of cash so these the next month or next year the superstore going to be
4:14 pm
able to on the take the forms message quite unnecessary forms to improve the life of the greek people ok let me get back to the greek pensioners again when when we're talking about twenty percent unemployment g.d.p. down twenty five percent on pre-crisis levels it doesn't sound like there's going to be the productivity to actually keep through the country going and to ensure that further down the track greek pensioners are well looked after. you are correct cheapie is that levels similar to the us great depression but unlike the us recoveries taking much longer and the problem is that greece achieve the primary surplus by tax increases by cuts in social security spending but stuff reforms stakes still very long to get licensees if you want to need permits to build build a new plant all these things which are it's just homework for the greek government
4:15 pm
on its own this homework is still not done. kind of a straight talk for me in switzerland there for us to find out what greeks think i asked the athens correspondent and if people are in the mood to celebrate now definitely not those i expect their situation their day to day life in fact to to grow worse in the coming months because the government has consigned greece to additional reforms to more cuts there will be coming down the road don't forget though on the books the figures that macroeconomics this crisis looking better unemployment is down still high the deficit is down you know all these figures are very promising growth rates are very high but that has yet to trickle down to the really economy and shoot the perks. of the greeks and
4:16 pm
that will take time unless some investments kick in fast and to create jobs and to get the economy rolling because as the professor there as the expert said before most of these fiscal improvements have been caused simply by taxes i think are a supper for us there in athens nice to get your take. from reader on the situation in indonesia that's right bennett least ten people have been killed on the indonesian islands of long walk and so bob after a fresh series of earthquakes hit the region now several powerful tremors including one with a strength of six point nine triggered landslides damaged buildings and spread panic it comes just two weeks after the last earthquake in the island's recent history killed four hundred sixty people. it is a scene that is becoming familiar to races and some tall a-g.

makers on the island of lombok the aftermath of yet another powerful arest quake this measuring magnitude six point three the first in a series to strike the island over a matter of hours damaging buildings and causing panic. i was on the third floor it was very strong and we could feel the building shaking all of the lights went out. but. the initial areas quake's epicenter was in longbox northeast further travers' came next then a stronger and much shallower quake this time measuring six point nine hit off the islands north east coast here a landslide triggered on the mountain where hikers had been trapped in july quake a week later on august fifth the worst quake in the island's history killed more than four hundred sixty people. there with terrorists who tales and business is well drilled in the task of getting people out quickly. everyone ran out of the
4:18 pm
hotel but no one pushed their way through they evacuated calmly. fearing further tremors these hotel guests are preparing for a sleepless night i cite hospitals to moving patients to relative safety. now earlier we spoke to who's the who's the who works for the international federation of the red cross he's on lombok island and to listen about the relief effort in the area. you know at the end foreign money critic was wondering right you know knowing that. there's been a lot of. aftershocks recorded hundreds of them by and. to some remote areas has been really challenging in the sense that there's a lot of local land like going on and edgewater couldn't get through somebody on our air and we've been focusing on targeting more remote areas because we keep
4:19 pm
hearing reports that many people out there in remote areas have not received a report and this last week out i joined the distribution team to one of the dinar at the north one time gas and we were able to find one remote area and that was the first time where local communities. were receiving aid from even in some red cross at the time we were adults organized quite some distribution through motorbike and that's our priority really to get into more rural areas but we more shocked at the moment. bring our work over the jury to more remote areas where people have heeded the call. who's to who's the phone the red cross speaking to d.w. from lombok island turning now to india where a break in the weather is allowing risk is to help people affected by catastrophic
4:20 pm
floods in the southern state of canada when with four hundred people have died in the past eleven days in the flooding caused by unusually heavy monsoon rains more than eight hundred thousand people and relief camps and much needed help is now beginning to reach them. as the rains finally subside and carola help is pouring in from throughout india. volunteers and charities are working at a fevered pace racing to get aid to the hundreds of thousands of victims still taking shelter at rescue centers. for this cause your decided to come together and help and other than sisters in need. for the calamity that is happening in get along so whatever little bit that we can do we've tried every best for many victims the aid can't come soon enough. that i get among them is it any wonder we live lost
4:21 pm
my house i've lost everything i had. i'm staying in a relief camp and i need help finding the. vital supplies are being dropped in by helicopter to deal with the growing shortage of food and water. but that in itself presents dangers. with some prefer to stay on higher ground and this is still a delicate and difficult rescue operation. fast flowing water and mudslides as well as being deadly have also uprooted trees and blocked off key access to roads. and the waters aren't the only danger confronting survivors local authorities fear disease could quickly spread if it didn't remain in cramped relief camps. and a few most stories that are making news around the body of gun security forces say they've rescued one hundred forty nine bus passengers who were kidnapped by the taliban in the northern province of conducing after their buses were ambushed

a german journalist can leave the country months after being released from prison during her trial on terrorism charges the decision to allow my solitude to leave was made several weeks ago but has only now been made public germany's foreign minister said the move was a step towards improving german turkish relations which have been strained in recent. there was visible relief among micheline to lou and her relatives when she was released from prison eight months ago news that her overseas travel ban has now been lifted is a further sign of deescalation between turkey and germany. political reaction in berlin was positive the leading policy makers clearly believe progress is needed. he defied. the release of anyone detained in countries where in my opinion the rule of law recent fully functional is a positive step in the eye. over the weekend social democrat
4:24 pm
leader and list tabled the idea of financial aid for turkey's struggling economy. but chancellor angela merkel spokesman poured cold water on that idea. i mean the forgotten and also you actually you know last week we repeatedly stated that turkey's economic stability is in germany's interest it's a question that emerged this weekend of german aid for turkey that is not on the government's agenda at the moment it's a pretty took. twenty just a german citizen with turkish roots total was arrested last year on charges of terrorist propaganda and membership in an extreme left party as a journalist for a leftist news agency she got caught up in a massive crackdown on the opposition that followed the failed coup in turkey back in twenty sixteen told who's next court appearance is scheduled for october it's unclear whether she'll be attending for now she's due to travel back to germany on
4:25 pm
sunday joining me now is the political cars fine has drawn from up on a man she said is give us some context what could be behind the sudden lifting of the travel ban. well first of all i have to say it wasn't as sudden as we have thought in the last few hours the foreign ministry spokesman here and birdland said just quite recently that in fact the decision by the courts to lift the straddle ban was taken some weeks ago and was only annoyance. in fact the decision to let her go is actually quite an old decision and has nothing to do with the current tensions in turkey apparently it does certainly still have something to do with the discussions between germany and turkey about somehow normalizing their relationship and in fact we also have to say while she can take her young son alone to germany and put him into kindergarten all that the new school years starting here her court case will continue the charges have not been lifted against her and her husband
4:26 pm
who's been accused in the same trial has not been allowed to leave turkey he remains restricted to turkey and looking that it will go to contacts santino that uncle is going through tough economic times and is lost in a trade spat with the u.s. could that have been to germany's advantage and enhanced its leverage over on kyra . yes i think so there's been several politicians in the last few days especially from the social democratic spectrum of the political political spectrum saying that germany should now advance with help towards turkey maybe financial help other forms of assistance to turkey in order to show turkey that it still has some sort of hold within some sort of friends within europe. regarding you know in contrast to the relationship to the united states german government spokesman this morning have been very reticent about that have been saying that nothing concrete is being discussed nothing concrete has been offered and their talks are continuing but of
4:27 pm
course what is happening is that there will be a summit meeting between the turkish president raise a tire. and i'm going to marco here in germany here in berlin in about a month's time and before that the ministers of finance and of economic affairs of both countries will also meet here in berlin so there are a lot of talks going on in the background i think and certainly in the current crisis germany and europe as a whole has a lot more leverage in trying to persuade turkey to come back into the european fold run time stronger the parliamentary c.d.'s thank you. it was in the day of the news coming up ahead. athletes dream big video gaming has made it to the asian games as an exhibition sport then now underway in chicago and it's in this code in the city with the teacher's blessings. and but an end to the

4:34 pm
a social media desk joins me on the story welcome first tell us about this has tag which has gone viral and what does it tell us about the gay and lesbian community here yeah i mean we've heard now of course of this me to hash tag will this hashtag is called me queerer and as you mentioned is really gone viral here in germany over the past week and if you breathe through these tweets online it's really powerful i mean it's a lot like reading public diary entries from people telling personal stories and these are really revealing discrimination harassment even death threats that people here are facing we're talking about gays lesbians transgender clear community in germany and we've seen scores of tweets like these that are dealing with for example public harassment and here's just one example of what we're talking about this is coming from a young man his name is mustafa and he writes the worst thing is when i'm just walking down the road holding hands with my boyfriend people swear and even spit at us i'm not doing anything wrong anything wrong or sexual i just love my sweetheart
4:35 pm
and you see the hashtag there me queer others using that hashtag to reveal why they've chosen actually to remain in the closet in germany this is one woman in germany who explains her rationale for that she says i haven't come out get to my family or many of my offline friends because i'm twenty eight but still really afraid where i grew up people talk about clear life as if it were a terrible illness some of these stories are just flat out disturbing to read and this is one of them that really kind of takes your breath away this is one story of just a person walking down the street in one thousand year old and he says i was walking with a rainbow shirt through berlin an older person said when i was young we fortunately could have gassed you gosh this hash tag it's really helping now to spark a nationwide. i'd discussion about the struggles that this community faces you know even in a relatively progressive country right here in germany and we've also seen this hashtag now in other countries like france and austria so obviously agree it needed
4:36 pm
to talk about this issue how did the movement stot so this was a hashtag started by one person here in germany located just outside berlin his name is triva he's a freelance writer you know he told us he faced violence growing up as a gay teenager in germany back in the eighty's and ninety's and he's also followed the need to debate closely so he decided you know he wanted to stand up for his community online and here's more of what he told us earlier today should. i believe it's crucial that we keep moving forward that we keep pushing for an open society at a time when it feels like we're having a collective panic attack or demanding ever more robaxin or freedoms panic attack about to move beyond what the answer to that cannot be to stand still given to these demands rather to keep forging ahead. and what should do what you're going to invite to be in the collective panic attack is how you describe it don this is where you also see in issues like this the power of the hashtags and what even i
4:37 pm
think of jim including people like us who live here who think that actually it's of a kind of safe and open for the. community so obviously it's not it's not yeah it's not necessarily especially being here in berlin where we are i mean you see so much public acceptance you see these big parades in the streets during a christopher street day you know but it's not necessarily that easy for this community and we asked him about that you know he agrees it's a tolerant place same sex marriage as been legal now as you mentioned for more than one year but you know progress he says is about more than just tolerance. oh legally speaking we've made progress but that does mean that were not still facing challenges in our daily lives i don't give a damn about your tone or age i want to be accepted i want to be accepted for who i am as to many other queer people you know. so interestingly a couple of quick statistics related to that point that he's making i did know this gay men in germany on average they still earn two euros per hour less than their
4:38 pm
straight colleagues and actually hate crimes related to sexual orientation here in germany they increased by more than twenty five percent in the first half of last year so you know germany becoming very progressive in terms of this these kind of rights but there's still work to be done and that is what this hashtag really is all about exactly and i also have a big problem of the word tolerance i think inclusive is a much better way to look at this issue congressman from a social media desk thank you so much for bringing that story on this modern hashtag to us. ok moving now to the democratic republic of congo where police have new assistants in the capital kinshasa their robots drivers who flout the rules of the road not have to answer to the so-called ruble cops who direct traffic and keep watch that is as long as they don't short circuit on the job. metal giant tossed with regulating traffic in kinshasa the capital of democratic
