8:09 am

8:13 am
boat that would take them to europe was left to fend for himself travelling first to greece and austria before landing in kill in the north of germany that he got in touch with the red cross to find out where his family was i'm told that made it to the u.k. often handy. i can see her face on my phone so i feel completely. it's like hitting the jackpot. raiser is not alone the red cross is looking for one hundred thousand missing people worldwide the highest number in ten years. one reason why we get so many requests is certainly to do with the fact that there are more people fleeing now than for a very long time and there are over sixty eight million displaced people worldwide and many of these people whether they are refugees or displaced in their own countries lose contact with their families i'm turn to. the red cross uses
8:14 am

8:15 am
a formal apology kate brady reports. momos ours in those minorities are mentioned some by some of them would chop off the prisoners heads. up. and then throw the rest of their bodies in the water to feed the sharks. when i think about this history it makes me sad. and bitter. totally sure israel cannot chica is the only herero activist in germany one hundred years since the end of german colonialism the seventy one year old namibian is calling for the german government to take responsibility. just demanding three things an apology or a recognition of genocide and reparations break something you have to fix it was everybody and women over. it was here in berlin that the fate of africa was decided at the eight hundred eighty five conference the continent was sliced up and divided

a hundred years ago or more so that we as europeans can apologize for the terrible things that and take responsibility. but also so that this is accepted by the african side so that our future is not because we talk about the past. but what we can do together now. but israel talks excluding herero unama people count for nothing some activists have gone as far as filing a lawsuit in new york against the german government calling for that participation . their return however of some twenty herero unama human remains at a ceremony in balance french church is being regarded as at least a step in the right direction if you do does the do i think this is a positive from what isn't good is that it's taking place in a church why not in parliament and then recognize the genocide at the same time focus more on the like many herero unama activists israel once all
8:18 am
planned at work and human remains to be returned to their home country the german government however favors more provenance research by museums. but israel isn't about to give up like mice of his fellow activists his campaign for germany to recognize the murders of herero unama people is genocide is a personal one. i also have german and sisters that means that my history has something to do with germany and i tell you no i will fight until i die. now thousands of devoted fans are lining up in detroit to pay their last respects to the queen of soul aretha franklin's body is lying in state in her hometown of detroit a private funeral will take place on friday the seventy six year old died earlier this month from pancreatic cancer. this is where rita franklin learned to say

8:23 am
week he said the talks have made the canadians demand it's working with canada are trying to work minute this is a complicated agreement there's lots of things in here or whole new i would think again it would be very much on board with stronger intellectual property stronger protections modernizing the agreement so i'm hopeful that the open issues with canada can be resolved. without a deal to us prison donald trump has threatened to impose tariffs on canadian made vehicles but that could weigh on the automotive sector on both sides of the border because the neighbors rely heavily on each other's parts if talks with kind of wrapped up by the end of this week trump only plans to seek approval from congress for the bilateral deal with mexico. not on europe the italian pilots union has approved a collective labor agreement with ryanair it's the latest breakthrough in the budget airlines efforts to staff protests in europe after a deal with irish pilots last week and

a chinese takeover chinese investments in europe have risen dramatically in the past few decades from one hundred four million euros in two thousand to around thirty billion and twenty seventeen on the face of it a welcome development but some investments are state controlled. and all private funding from china is really private at the end of the day and that means that chinese influence may be endangering parts of the german economy that are significant for germany's future development and its high technology. and the fed it's and and in may two thousand and fifteen the chinese government published its master plan known as made in china twenty twenty five the strategy focuses on ten key areas including energy air and space travel medical technology and robotics china aims to be a market leader especially in those areas that industrial nations such as germany rely on for economic growth that can affect security interests as in the case of fifty hertz the german government recently stopped
