4:03 pm
disappeared into camps along with members of muslim ethnic minorities the official just a few cation combating religious extremism it's all for in washington for them to accept you are chinese you have a shot at the national unity is size to make you feel you are hot looked at nation you don't need to keep your own ethnic identity it's just really like ethnic cleansing practice because a whore for a ts have worn some or han of the long arm of chinese authorities but he wants his voice to be heard. will need to have the courage to tell the truth if we don't share our stories of what's going on then who will. that's why i'm speaking out of my duty and for the dishonesty might i someone honasan are marching the city around three hundred kilometers from the chinese border if you form
4:04 pm
a detainee's have made it. we do not know exactly how many people are being detained at these camps international organizations estimate that the number exceeds one million there are no verdicts and no sentences release is entirely at the whim of the camp administration. many cars are seven months to china and many have relatives in the camps just saying the wrong word can lead to detention. for many inmates the only hope or at least comes from amnesty is efforts on their behalf and this man was arrested on a business trip. and having to be all sure i don't even know if he is still alive you know but you yes you know the way the so nice son is twelve. he asks me where his father is every day even his teacher has started asking questions. about the news from
4:05 pm
across the border has become scars for muslims in china any contact with their relatives is simply too dangerous. well as we heard in that report the weekers are among the muslim minority being detained in these camps and we can speak to omar cannot the head of the executive committee of the we the world congress he joins us from washington thank you for being on our program does a story that we just saw there reflect what you have heard from other weekers who have been in these re-education camps. yes yes exactly and we have you know. terrible stories. people. woman and children woman. pregnant woman and also people with serious illnesses people with disabilities also being held in these reeducation
4:06 pm
come of the early and the suffering from physical and mental torture and they are being forced to. read your religion renounced their culture and. is that inhuman dated and beaten and there are reports of both of that in custody and we have. a man who translated from arabic into we go mohammad saw the idea for example he was sixty two years old died in. suspicious circumstances in does one of these reeducation camps ok so for all men and forced to event according to some almost i could just jump in there so you're saying that there are there's a lot of evidence of terrible treatment happening in these camps but i want to bring in beijing's perspective because the government says these are mildly
4:07 pm
corrective camps and that they come after violence and there wasn't a spate of violence in two thousand and thirteen in two thousand and fourteen for example where dozens of people died these were attacks carried out by weaker separatists china says it is its right to implement these de radicalisation programs that's what it says that these are a what's your perspective on that. there have been some war in an incidence because of chinese oppressive policies there was a reaction there was some reaction to chinese oppression in the region by the if some in the way jewels but there were there were not they organized terror activities i think it is but it doesn't give the chinese authorities the rather radicalization for example doesn't give the chinese authorities the right to put more than one million people in detention centers in one force more than two
4:08 pm
million were you goes to ten political and cultural indoctrination. centers the sessions so this is actually it is a what's going on right now in the circus stunt is not a. indoctrination or against the radical radicalization or it is not a fight against terrorism or extremism or radicalism it's a fight against a people a whole people destroyed by the chinese authorities culture in the language of the language linguistically and the chinese government's intention is a kind that an elimination or we have to leave it there as an ethnic mr kind and unfortunately that's all we have time for but thank you very much for joining us on our program our kind of head of the executive committee of the weaker world congress and washington good to speak to you thank you.
4:09 pm
in sweden both main political blocs a fail to secure a majority in the general election instead the far right has recorded major gains the ruling central left social democrats and their allies secured forty point six percent a slight edge of the center right alliance at forty point three percent the populace wave and democrats have surged into third place taking seventeen point six percent the far right party hopes to become kingmaker of any ruling coalition a scenario both centrist blocks are finding hard to stomach. europe's populist way now we've seen sweden in part because of this man u. me aur kosong declaring a big future for his third place anti immigrant party. do you know what friends of sweden they said on t.v. that it's hard to declare a winner of this election i know who's won the sweden democrats. in
4:10 pm
a small country that's taken in four hundred thousand asylum seekers since two thousand and twelve orcus owns message has resonated for those skeptical about immigration and the establishment that establishment incumbent prime minister stuff on left and center left coalition came out just millimeters ahead of the opposition center right alliance a sign left and says that it's time to toss out the bloc system that's defined swedish politics for decades if using is no side has a clear majority it's only natural that we will have to work across the political divide to make it possible to govern sweden so regardless of the final election results this will be the death of bloc politics. but his invitation to the central right to engage in cross party talks has so far fallen on deaf ears the head of the opposition instead calling for a lift them to resign that leaves two sides in a virtual dead heat after the vote both sides short of
4:11 pm
a majority both sides refusing to work with a strong third place finisher that has neo nazi roots. look for weeks or months of talks to form a new government in a country whose reputation for tolerance may be shifting along with the political winds sweeping across europe. to be as an expert on right wing populism in northern europe at the institute for international and security affairs here in berlin tobias' thank you for joining us now the center blocks are there they are in a dead heat they can't really build a government where does it go from here well they're both far away from know and maturity in parliament so it's not really a difficult situation right there right now and there's a lot of exclusion really present of all the votes don't you don't want to cooperate with the other parties on mobile blocks but in the end they have to really think seriously about the forming a crown coalition or trying to pulling over some smaller products from the from the other bloke and then the last option really is that this being democrats driving
4:12 pm
populists tolerates conservatives on or to government flat ok so we're talking about some serious changes here is a new era in swedish politics well obviously i mean it's not just out of the blue i mean it has developed over the years really it has started around two thousand tender and social been this week in democrats and the parliament for the first time and they doubled their support in two thousand and fourteen and now you've been even more. as strong as many expected actually as they self hoped for but it certainly is a shift in in a way we have you have no let's just only two clocks but free blocks in swedish politics right now the main issue leading up to this vote. migration and also integration a lot of accusations that the government has made a lot of mistakes on that front do the center parties have an answer to the problems or concerns that people are expressing well the first answer really was already back in two thousand and fifteen sixteen to restrict asylum in migration
4:13 pm
policies in the social democrats and the greens have for introduced a number of more restrictive masher and basically for the limits the influx of new asylum seekers and migrants into the country and those that are it's all already set in the election campaign that it will continue or if those measures that they have that it won't don't want to get rid of them but they all know they have to do more in terms of integration of microphones but they go on the labor market their sweden really lacks a behind bit and they will have to do more to. improve security national security so invest in police and the sort of measures so it also sounds like the center parties have also been influenced by the discourse of the right wing party this weekend democrats would you say that's the key absolutely to sweden democrats really set the agenda they put my creation into creation and the national security very high up on the agenda it's actually not so that'll frames often protect the social democrats but they really are forced in
4:14 pm
a way to not also deal with those issues and to get. to them all right that's all from the institute for international and security affairs thank you so much for sharing your insights with us if you. now to some other stories making headlines around the world hundreds of naval and coast guard personnel have been deployed to clean up an oil spill in sri lanka around twenty five tons of furnace oil leaked from a pipeline north of the capital colombo on sunday authorities say the leak has stopped but will take days to clean up. at least four people have been killed in a suicide bombing in the somali capital mogadishu authorities say a car laden with explosives rammed a security checkpoint at a local government office the bombing was claimed by the extremist group. seven people were wounded in a knife attack in central paris late on sunday authorities say a man began attacking passers by outside a movie theater seriously injuring four police detained
4:15 pm
a suspect official say they don't think the incident was related to terrorism. you're watching the news still to come x. on the streets of eastern germany again the small town of curtain including far right sympathizers mobilizes after a man dies in a fight with two afghan that duration. who knew what and when the decisive questions braunschweig top court has to answer in this test case did fox walk in way too long before informing shareholders about the a merging admissions cheating scandal and is it therefore liable for substantial damages. the suit has been brought by the dick investment fund it wants two hundred million euros damages to cover its losses. but another seven thousand five hundred shareholders who lost money over the emissions scandal lined up behind a car all together v.w. shareholders are claiming nine and
4:16 pm
a half billion euros the figure is based on the forty percent drop in three w.'s share price in the first two weeks after the scandal became public. take our investment claims v.w. management knew about the emissions cheating devices installed in its vehicles long before then and should have informed shareholders if dick i investment wins this test case it would be followed by a veritable avalanche of claims. following this case closely from the very first stock exchange. what is the likelihood of an avalanche of lawsuits as we heard there. well you know ben at the moment roughly four thousand shareholders are folks who are have filed lawsuits in various german courts among them hundreds of individuals fewer than half of those are now at issue in the court hearings that started today and this trial of course was set a precedent for the other cases if only
4:17 pm
a few of those claims are considered to be legitimate by the court of course this would encourage all of the other plaintiffs to proceed with their court cases i don't know whether this would be an avalanche it would sure be a big problem for folks and one that can last very long and expensive one what about the judge's comments though that the most of the claims come too late. you know in this case now the plaintiffs claim that the folks watching must have known years before diesel gate about the fact that those emissions systems don't work we're talking about the years two thousand and eight to two thousand and twelve that's long before diesel gate came up at twenty fifteen and the judge now suspects that the statute of limitations might kicking kick in which puts a time bar on some of those claims it wouldn't touch the core of the court case though it wouldn't it just limits you know the timeframe that the judge is willing
4:18 pm
to look at. of course this doesn't mean that the plaintiffs stand no chance of winning big compensation here ok keep following that story for us tonight booze in in frankfurt. turkey's economy grew five point two percent during the second quarter of this year growth has slowed down amid the country's currency crisis chronic inflation remains a major problem to president budget time a better one believes higher interest rates which could help fight inflation a bad for economic growth u.s. sanctions on turkey have also done little to help its economy turkey's g.d.p. expanded. the point four percent is fastest annual rate now the economy is expected to grow three point three percent this year. that's assuming tensions remain high in east germany that's right than the region really has been on edge after a violent anti migrant protests gripped a sea of kenneth's two weeks ago and fears of more on breast rose again on sunday
4:19 pm
when a man died after a fight with two afghan migrants in the town of coton about one hundred fifty kilometers southwest of berlin some two and a half thousand protesters followed the call of far right groups and gathered there for a march a post-mortem showed the man died of acute heart failure and not of his injuries the afghan men have been taken into custody. kirton is a small town in eastern germany on saturday evening two groups clashed here a german man died two afghans were arrested the mayor of curtain called for calm. the good news and good nose of the people are dismayed as i am myself and that's not surprising when someone dies under these circumstances as i understand it the victim intervened in the argument as a mediator and obviously that didn't work out so folks and. not everyone reacted calmly as news of the man's death spread on social media there were calls for
4:20 pm
a protest according to the police some twenty five hundred people took part in the so-called vigil march ordinary curtain residents but also members of the far right alternative for germany party police say there were four to five hundred with links to the far right. apart from those four or five hundred i hope the other two thousand and not denounced as right wing extremists. labeling people like that is not helpful. it's not clear exactly what happened there was a dispute and the german man later died of a heart attack police say one of the arrested afghans should have been deported the other had a residence permit politicians are keen to avoid comparisons with nearby candidates where the death last month of a german man led to far right protests as in kirton the extreme right mobilized supporters over the internet. of
4:21 pm
course we are aware of how far right groups operate on a national level and how they are able to react so quickly that we will adapt our plans accordingly but. more demonstrations are planned incursion later today police have brought in reinforcements from all around germany. hansbrough from d.w. politics is following this story for us i had good to see you what exactly do we know so far about the death of this twenty two year old man well it was just confirmed very recently in a press conference by the interior minister and the justice minister minister of that federal state where this took place sex in the on that that the man in fact died of a heart attack and that this heart attack was in no way related to the injuries that he sustained apparently injuries were not as serious as was reported but obviously a man must have been and a lot of stress it was a stressful situation he was taken to
4:22 pm
a hospital after the fight in the park during which these injuries were sustained and then he died in hospital presumably because his heart which was chronically weak he had a heart disease for many years because his heart just gave in ok so if the man's death wasn't directly linked to the injuries incurred during his alter patient with the two suspects why have they been arrested well obviously there was a fight there was an assault there was an assault in fact with the result that someone died there is some form of legal process that has to be followed here these men two afghans one is eighteen the other is twenty. taken into custody and is now going to be decided by the police whether they in some form contravene some laws it seems likely that there will be at least charged with assault and possibly with assault that lead to someone's death so there is a reason for the arrests but it's not quite clear exactly what happened during this
4:23 pm
altercation what the reasons were and in fact the interior ministry and the police authorities are not able to say at the moment the investigations and to earlier stage at the moment to be able to say exactly what happened to the right hands brand from didn't you politics covering the story for us thank you honey. now several journalists say they were assaulted or threatened during yesterday's march and and they have been documenting what happened with federico from date of you social media team with us to tell us more about this fredricka this is something that we've seen at other far right protests what happened in court and well luckily no reporter was injured but we know of at least two german journalists who were intimidated they were pushed and eventually they were forced to stop their reporting essentially one of them is called martine khalil he is a journalist with germany's daily. and we have some scenes from a life stream that he posted yesterday. you can quickly see
4:24 pm
there he is. and so he was filming and commenting on speeches at yesterday's rally but then he appeared to be surrounded by several or several members of the crowd and we can hear him saying that he wants to leave but that's when things begin escalating you can hear people here shouting. or lying press which is a nazi era term and then the video cuts out. now later that journalist and martin posted in a separate twitter in a separate tweet that he was actually showed away from the scene people tried to take his phone and then at some point police had to intervene and then managed to pull him away and we also have a second incident this is a marcus fats who works for a buzz feed here in germany and he had been posting
4:25 pm
a video documenting the rally as well and he said later that he was assaulted by participants he said he was not injured but he was pushed he's t. shirt was was torn so these are just examples of really how these protests are becoming more more and. or unsafe for journalists to report on definitely troubling frederica's something we've also seen in various far right protests now is that many of the protesters don't necessarily come from that area so many of the protesters didn't necessarily come from curtain or using social media to mobilize what can you tell us about how they're doing so absolutely actually the mayor of couldn't has been calling these protestors in an interview far right traveling tourists and he said that the mayor of cook them said that the calls for action where they were started on several closed fire right facebook groups and that these
4:26 pm
channels really were used to escalate the anger escalate the response we've seen also that some of the groups that were involved in organizing protests similar protests in kenya two weeks ago they were also calling on their upon their followers to to march on could in these times one of these groups for example is called pro candidates we thought they were posting messages encouraging their followers to to go to and some of the some of the bigger facebook groups that are popular here in germany among the far right scene also they have been discussing the events in couldn't very extensively with a lot of a lot of inflammatory messages and clearly in an effort to whip up sympathizers from different parts of the country all right our social media editor federico fredricka thank you very much. you're watching d.w. news still to come the end game in italy the province syrian and russian forces

4:42 pm
largest e-commerce site and it plays a role national role actually for the chinese economy to switch from one that is largely driven by infrastructure and exports it is something that is actually for the domestic market driven by the domestic market in terms of consumption as well as services so he's actually on this that his legacy for for jack ma so basically he got in a good time very early on in the piece but he's winding down in his role of quite a bad time with this trade war between china and the u.s. on the intensifying well you know like many chinese tech giants they've actually kept the government at length actually partly said that works with chinese authorities in terms of national security but he said he still thought to keep the government at arm's length now actually ali baba had had a good run and it's actually made it been making a lot of revenues double digit revenues for the past few years and it's also
4:43 pm
a pretty diversified business still it's got its hands in things like cloud computing in financial services as well as in the developing cash payment so these are the things that i should believe to buffer the impact of trade war going forward can you briefly tell us what sort of a light this departure of his shines on corporate governance and succession in china. it's actually a contrast bad i mean he has three children and his three children are all not. about ending it's kept out of the limelight and is actually his actually contrast the entrepreneurs that have actually been trying to find a succession plan they have relied on family so i get my say an exceptional case linda thank you very much china's huge debt problem beijing wants to ensure economic growth is independent from the global economy domestic spending
