4:01 pm
this as a final day of campaigning is underway in the german state of bulgaria ahead of a highly charged election on sunday there are two losses that look likely to upset the political status quo. and communities in florida count the cost of hurricane michael want the most powerful storms in u.s. history. i don't welcome. we begin with some breaking news a turkish court has lifted the house the rest of us pastor andrew bronson the ruling allows him to leave turkey immediately don some was arrested just two years ago on suspicion of having links to fit to lead girl in the cleric uncle or blames for the field coup attempt in two thousand and sixteen his detention has scored friction between washington and ankara with both sides imposing sanctions.
4:02 pm
for the very latest we go live to istanbul and to our correspondent there dorian joins toure what more can you tell us about the court decision and what happens next. well it was a very eventful day this is the fourth hearing of the trial and it was remarkable from the beginning when key prosecution witnesses one after another retracted evidence that they had earlier given one declare they didn't even know who bronson was while all of us said they had been misunderstood by the court i think and that paves the way for a decision by the judge to reach quickly reach a verdict he did convict bronson but only sentenced him to three years and one month in jail given the fact the bronzes already been in jail for two years he's now allowed to leave the country with time served there is an expectation he could possibly leave as early as today the u.s. official quoted by u.s. media says they already think him out the country this evening so there's an expectation he could be in the u.s. some point later on today so this all happened very quickly now past of brunson's
4:03 pm
case as i mentioned had led to a big spat between the american president trump and president john of turkey with the u.s. slapping they damaging sanctions on or do you think there's a link between daschle the court decision. oh yes i think there is been this expectation of some sort of deal has been reached between the two sides given the fact that it is has. these two nato allies into their worst crisis in decades now what the actual details of the deal is no one quite knows given the fact that both sides are after nine this you have said they would not negotiate until brought some of this out of the country he says of the judiciary's independent but there is an expectation of some sort of deal of possibly concessions over the recently imprisoned. are working for who is accused of violating u.s. sanctions against iran he's been pressing for his return there is an expectation.
4:04 pm
for his quick return back to turkey i'm also reduction in the expected massive fine against his bank that is a key demand of encore as well but it has to be said that there are still major differences between these two countries. in istanbul thank you very much for that live breaking news. not a deal in politics and use of a here in the country shows is force in politicians to sit up and take notice that shows support for parties off on the americans governing coalition plunging to its lowest level since the government was formed in march many voters are switching really just a small a grouping such as the far right a.f.c. and the socially liberal environmental party the greens the new figures come ahead of a fiercely contested regional election in the southern state of bavaria there too voters are expected to punish the conservative c.s.u. party that is wrong the state for most of the post-war period so obvious in
4:05 pm
a seismic shift in germany's political landscape let's first take a look at the numbers now if elections across germany were held today the sum of a shows this is how things withstand shows america's conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. bloc is at twenty six percent down three percentage points from september the social democrats the junior party in the coalition are also down three points now which is fifteen percent the greens in contrast have gained three points with seventeen percent of the vote and the far right if he is unchanged on a steady sixteen percent meanwhile the freemarket f.t.p. is at ten percent as is the left party. so what do all these numbers mean to talk about is a political correspondent fabienne funded lock in the studio with me welcome five in sydney have these are some of the lowest approval numbers for a governing coalition and the government since the board was set up in one thousand
4:06 pm
nine hundred seven how do you explain the fact that two parties which are considered historically the main bodies of germany clipping so dramatically in their vote share one explanation certainly that there were many fights in between the parties between the partners between the conservatives and the social democrats and that's never attractive to vote as if they have the feeling that the government within itself is not happy with each other then the second thing is that people are more and more tired of this constellation of the grand coalition they have governed before many times merits a fourth time in office and people are in a way i don't have the feeling that there's something new that there isn't a new fresh approach to politics and then there was also just poor performance in practical political work they made mistakes for example when they wanted to punish a domestic intelligence chief and then supported him or they also left people alone with the diesel cars where they don't know how to enter the cities anymore and
4:07 pm
politicians couldn't offer a solution so these are a situation that make people unsatisfied and that's why we have these dramatic figures now in the green party has again what do you think it's people i wanted about climate change and environmental policies and that explains this so much in the vote shift at the greens according to this. well climate change certainly plays a role we had a very hot dry summer so people got aware of this problem again but it's also the greens they have just to offer a really clear stance on many topics they're a pro european they're pro migration they are pro a liberal society and they can offer a fresh personal young dynamic politicians that really can offer a. as the outlook on germany on the side and that's something that people obviously like and they are no position party that is rational and at the same time offering something new and having just five years after it has funded the far right populist if tea party has done really well this time to get sixteen percent according to
4:08 pm
this survey how did that come about in a way they're the opposite of the greens when you look at germany the migration policy in the last years has somehow divided the society and what you have on the one hand the greens very pro migration the a fifty is the expression of the unsatisfaction with americans migration and we also have in the society so this is the other position and then there's also the tiredness with merit to the anger on politics those who really feel very strong in this respect and don't really care what other solutions the party could offer they go for the a fifty that's why they're that strong to look to die just to hook a combination of factors pulling in different directions five unfunded political correspondent thank you very much for that analysis. now as those numbers emerge politicians in germany will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of a regional election in the southern city of bavaria on sunday and the conservative
4:09 pm
c.s.u. has been the dominant party there for much of the post-war period but they too have been shedding support the poll in bavaria could also have implications for chancellor angela merkel the bavarian c.s.u. is part of the ruling conservative block our reporters michelle and max of course she went to bavaria to feel the local pulse and take a look at why the people there appear to be shunning the government that has ruled them for so long. once a year the top figures in bavarian politics gathered the grave of france he was a star was the man celebrated as something between the patron saint and godfather of modern but varia. germany's interior minister hostin who is here too in berlin he's the trouble maker in our government and the very serious you party leader is already trying to distance himself from an
4:10 pm
expected election defeat calls for his head are getting louder. there's an expectation that you should take responsibility this sunday if this goes badly for you see if you party will you do that. this isn't it nice for people to worry about these things but i didn't see a single election post with my face on it as i was driving up here. instead state premier marcos today is on the posters and in the spotlight he used to have a picture of france use of stars in his bedroom and still likes to quote him. there should be no space for democratic parties further right than us the far right ear of the campaign that strauss would. voted for them so he did for them. this time as family has criticized sees you leaders for failing to act against the rise of the
4:11 pm
far right they had even started adopting right wing rhetoric themselves it was hoping to take over as the c.s. used new straw men who eventually put a stop to that. here in lower bavaria many voters have long fled from the c.s.u. and gone further to the right. although bavarian support for the far right if t. is patchy the region of deccan doff saw it get around thirty percent in last year's general elections making this time. around. the room is. a parliamentary group please everybody here good secondary thank you so much constituency in various. systems all the way from both is because to me is that these reactions are elections about much more than.
4:12 pm
i'll use my lists here supporting the f.t.'s bavarian shooting star kathleen steiner is young traditional and unapologetic about her key ambition. yes this will be the final nail in the coffin of the woman who wants to abolish germany and the americal. often by an. in bavaria too spoilt illegal immigrants ninth great people in small villages and towns. during her speech she cites figures suggesting migrants are ten times as likely to commit violent crimes you cite just crime statistics we are not aware of those where exactly did you get them from the us. that is the official police statistic processed by our chief superintendent who is
4:13 pm
also a member of parliament. the statistics she quotes do not come to this conclusion fear is a driving force for many here tonight. i can no longer let my kids out on the street on their own with what i see on t.v. or hear on the radio. just can't do it anymore this is for. help. the main issue is security i have children and were really afraid for our children and. that's the mood marco suit is up against as he faces the deck and off crowd hear hear knowledge is he can't stop a broad populist movement preaching. the sweet. wind of change blowing across europe i. challenge established institutions. and that spirit of change doesn't stop at germany's borders not of various borders
4:14 pm
it's sweeping across our country. to figure out a very looms large over the october fest generally a politics free zone but the state election is being fought in the name of defending what it celebrates best and bavarians hold most dear. i. i i. i learned parties good quality of life. time outs. times and being happy i took the fast. the i was in this area like the rest of germany emotions run high as soon as it comes to migration you see you cross the sea and the migration debate is that many feet fit the areas you know will grow. causing brewery has
4:15 pm
been in the family of lot to turn to get involved for more than five hundred years . german purity law makes sure the beer recipes are as old as the traditions behind them the great concern here is that nationalism could threaten business. if people outside germany by ever having beer i want them to think of a beautiful country i want them to think of different goodness of all people i want them to think of all cultures of all traditions and i don't want them to think of violence and hate and racism these things like this so we have to watch a couple of what's going on and this cannot continue. visitors from around the world have been welcome at the abbey of auto boy for more than a thousand years. i'm
4:16 pm
going to america is expected here today there are demonstrations against but also for her fixed since what became known as the migration crisis in twenty fifteen. it's only joint appearance with a conservative top candidates mark. merkel calls for confidence in being german as an antidote to fear of others. because it knows and those who are no longer aware of their own foundations of course don't know how to integrate others and in this debate about islam i sometimes get the sense that some may have become jealous that others are living their religion while we forget ours focus on. the very in elections used to be coronation style transfers of power but marco sudan knows he faces a fight in sunday's elections. believing the it's currently we're
4:17 pm
seeing something totally different here in germany you know people should be happy and content because things have never been better in germany. despite that strong economy the public are unhappy and turning away from the scene as you in both directions current polls predict the greens could become the various second strongest political force and could well join the c.s.u. led government the top candidates see themselves as living proof that a left wing alternative for germany is possible but i am not to mention a small town this area has a great motto to live and let live and i think that sums it up perfectly and of course we're open to the world we're pro europe and we want to stay that way and i believe the citizens of the very up down the politicians another spreading hate and fear. one has one hits a fish. here in munich like the whole of europe. politicians are struggling to understand the new public discontent many feel
4:18 pm
a new right wing mainstream. is open to the world with a very and soul that's how we should behave we don't need those nazis. the nazis to put on it. what we need to do is balance out the gap between rich and per year in germany and the rest of the world. i don't think the fourteenth of october will get us any closer to that. for the first time in german post-war history this very an election campaign smacks of pro change sentiment at the very least that's expected to blow away anglo-american interior minister. but it could also deal another blow to zero grip on power. and we should occur if they did have these chief political editor who you saw there will also be reporting live on sunday as we bring you coverage of that key election

4:21 pm
counting the cost of the monster storm. it's two days after hurricane michael crashed through the florida panhandle the scope of the devastation has come into sobering focus. coastal communities such as panama city. and mexico beach show a ruined landscape of splintered homes and toppled trees debris is everywhere. rescue teams are still gathering to search for victims. the destruction continues further inland where the hurricane also left its mark eighty kilometers from the coast the small community of one's town has been hit hard. trees are down of course power lines are down not just power lines power stations power transformers and that's a major problem even for a community like this year because there. won't be any power for weeks maybe even

4:24 pm
play is comparable with those of the french national team of course they won the world cup this summer and russia but he criticized the coach and also the internal review which he feels was not sufficient and he joins a long list of germany captains that have spoken out against the germans but will association in the aftermath of this disastrous world cup where germany crashed out in the group stage people like from speck about philip all of a con and the like and one of the leading figures in the current germany set up twenty cross yesterday at a press conference hit back and somewhat jokingly said maybe bach was off the job himself but felt that your love is the right man to take the team forward and live himself will be a press conference in around hof an hour's time speaking presumably on the matter i'm sure journalists will be asking a show of area i will be asking him about that so yes it's already made waves i think will be on some people's minds during the game as well ok now there's another kind of big game coming up this weekend which is creation of missing playing in
4:25 pm
seven strange circumstances yes the last time they played was in the world cup. semifinal of course in july eighty thousand fans a cracking atmosphere now they're playing in the way for nations league this new competition that is eventually meant to phase out the european qualifiers for the european championships not such a great atmosphere tonight because there will be exactly zero founds in attendance that's because of a stadium ban. something that occurred before the world cup so let's find out exactly what has led to this. it was supposed to be an epic come coming in croatia take on england in their first home match since reaching the world cup final later on friday but there won't be a single fan in the stands for. it will be very hard to play without our fans but what can we do we have to accept it and play as best as possible and achieve a good result. has got a good bit of. support as
4:26 pm
a banned from attending the match after a swastika symbol was carved into croatia's pitch ahead of a previous match against italy. so advantage england coach karen southgate isn't convinced. it means that. the. support can give you those moments where you're on the pressure is it seems it will be different definitely whether it's an advantage to know fans or not croatia are in need of a win off to a six nil drubbing at the hands of spain in their previous nations league match. they face an england side out for revenge after losing to croatia in the semifinals of the world cup. so plenty on the line for both teams in this clash even if nobody's watching. another nations lead cashed in i bet you mrs smith's son in
4:27 pm
belgium is that had some trouble with the raids on corruption and things would that affect their performance well most of the belgium set up most of the big players don't play in belgium so they have pretty far away from this they play in the leagues like the premier league in england the bundesliga here in germany the spanish league but vincent kompany that captain has already come out and said he's not surprised by the issues surrounding agents and transfers because he says there's no transparency within the footballing market really now just to remind our viewers on wednesday sixty around sixty raids were conducted in belgium mostly but also in seven countries in total france and serbia for instance in the include in that as well and nineteen people have today been charged formally the charges include fraud corruption money laundering and conspiracy and it involves referees agents and even coaches of a champions league club so it's going to be a very interesting time for belgium football that's right and thank you very much for making your brain to think for us max buy in from us both this kind of reason.

came to power in march a new opinion poll shows only one in four people is happy with america's government . to welcome then for business news and almost on the weekend night it is looking positive it's an exciting time of the week and global stocks looking a little bit better recovering somewhat of those days of massive selloff wall street opening bell one percent higher european shares flat though germany's dax up only slightly it was a possible recovery in asia comes hang staying surged more than two percent shanghai was up almost one percent the prospect of more u.s. interest rate hikes and its trade dispute with china still weighing on investors' minds correct boozing is at the frankfurt stock exchange for us how strong is the recovery. it's not really strong ben yes the german share index is trading a little bit higher than last night but on
4:32 pm
a weekly scale the german dax is still down around about four percent and look at the graph that the german share index is painting here against the wall of the trading halt it doesn't really look like this is a strong recovery and it doesn't look like the nervousness among investors has really gone away in the us like market turbulence and that is something that certainly not good for a company going public but germany's just had its second biggest i.p.o. i think. that's true four billion euros of worth of shares were sold today of canonical grahams a company that produces braking systems of brake systems and steering systems for trucks and for railways demand was really high for the shares despite the fact that this has been such a shaky week of the general stock market and to put despite the fact that those four billion euros will not be invested the company heinz how month the owner of

if the top two will commies do not resolve their disputes. well you don't use florian north spoke with germany's top central banker at the international monetary fund and world bank gathering in bali in five months is resulting trade disputes would be easier if the world trade organization were a fault. it's key to strengthen the multilateral trade mechanism and that's the w t o but we all agree. that there are issues that have to be addressed one would be for instance the protection of intellectual property rights but also addressing overcapacity is in some sectors especially the steel sectors have to be discussed but again it's key to rely on this multilateral removed based mechanisms and not to resort to bilateralism and on trump's eyes the major bone of contention remains germany's large trade surplus which is still up hold that this surplus is
4:35 pm
mainly due to energy prices foreign exchange rates and the quality of german products as you have argued before so is there no need for germany to move at all this is a bit of a simplification of my position of course i mean the point i've made before was that it's key to look whether the trade balance is a result of trade distortions of market distortions or not and in the case of germany i don't see these distortions basically the current account is the result of numerous millions of individual decisions especially of course the investment saving balance and then there's a discussion to be to be helt i mean the question is how can we strengthen investment in germany on market based on the market mechanisms and of course public infrastructure also plays a role in this context and this is currently discussed within the government and
4:36 pm
there are also decisions taken of the suspect so weightman thank you very much for talking to w thank you very much elease parliament has approved a controversial budget despite warnings from the european union and the international monetary fund the budget seems a sharp rise in spending and a much higher deficit of two point four. the governing five star movement have vowed to the ends of the austerity of the past and to drive up investment but i.m.f. and the e.u. officials say the plan could lead to unsustainable debt if the already has the highest debt level in the eurozone after greece. i profile business leaders are reviewing ties with saudi arabia over missing journalist john michael sholay the head of ride sharing company yuba as pulled out of an investor conference in the saudi capital riyadh this month british billionaire richard branson says he's suspending two directorships links for tourism projects in saudi arabia and branson is putting discussions on hold of the funds to invest a billion dollars in

a saudi space program. he was trying to mitigate the effects of u.s. sanctions on iran reimposed after president or withdrew from the latest nuclear deal besides the obvious industrial restrictions the sanctions have cost the iranian currency fifty percent of its value iranians are turning to gold to protect their savings. to ron's gold markets in the city's one thousand year old market district are world renowned now world events are driving prices here. people are not sure what the future will bring i think homes have decreased and living expenses increased so people are worried buying gold is seen as an investment from . home and unfasten arrow shopping for wedding rings but the hesitating of the prices the iranian currency is depreciating every day the latest u.s. sanctions already impacting daily life. i guess it has to do with world politics
4:38 pm
and the nuclear energy deal. i'm not so sure but it's all the fault of the united states. the nuclear deal was seen as a lifeline for iran. by committing to not develop nuclear weapons the economy would take off but after trump pulled out and threatened anyone trading with iran many foreign companies that have begun investing here have no left the mood in tehran is no one of insecurity. and homemade or keeping their wedding as modest as they can like so many other weddings in iran now a days. girls are trying to keep it as simple as possible paid in cash if it's not . and later. we now go to japan where the number of school pupils sticking their own lives is tragically high in new york came into force in june two thousand and thirteen to bring one of the main causes of suicide it quiets government bodies local government schools and parents to implement
4:39 pm
measures to prevent putting sadly the law seems to be forming short of its goal. remount was thirteen. was thirteen. and now was fifteen years old. all three died the same way suicide. they were three of almost six hundred minors in japan who took their own lives within a year most often because of bullying at school. help is hardly available for them . but it can be found here in this free alternative school in tokyo traditional state schools are mirror images of society says director. she maintains that state schools promote peer pressure and not the individual and that students
4:40 pm
cast out by their peers no longer feel human and do they think that the one in japan normal is considered a good thing but what is normal citizen of the so here it's about the majority we do not accept that each person is different has individuality it is different in the west. cyberbullying is also spreading in japan through messaging apps like line in smartphone group chats it is all too easy to target specific people with the messaging app is extremely popular with japan's youth with terrible consequences for some bullying victims. line is based in tokyo and boasts seventy million customers in japan but the suicides have been tainting the company's image forcing it to respond by setting up an anti bullying task force. that. is can they scan up there to children often spend many hours at a time on their smartphone and at first most are oblivious to any danger. that's
4:41 pm
why they need to know that they can be targeted they need to know about bullying. that o. . line employees lead discussions on moral and ethical questions as well as messaging guidelines in some two thousand classrooms a year but with hundreds of thousands of cases of school bullying being reported every year a third of them online more awareness is needed. to judge many people feel hurt to when people talk behind their backs that's why i think you shouldn't do it and i do i get it that. you can going out of amman in group chats people can get upset if someone says something carelessly. that's no reason to immediately leave the group would be better to help those concerned. japan schools are pressure cookers here the continual tests and cramming for exams must be endured without
4:42 pm
complaint the intense frustration generated by that pressure is off invented in the form of bullying parents who lose a child through suicide like this father receive little support from the state raising one's voice can result in be called a troublemaker in this group oriented society. itself. even today the school asserts that there is no connection between suicide and bullying they're just looking out for themselves. they never thought about the death of my son they only thought about the trial. he believes the bullying is being systematically hushed up the teachers are turning a blind eye to protect their careers here in japan social harmony can seem more important than truth. but as long as the nation continues to be in denial children will continue to take their own lives. news coming to
4:43 pm
life from berlin and they've been with us for just over a decade but already they've changed that we live there very useful in many ways but scientists see it making us distracted and depressed and might even be rewiring brains i'm talking about smart phones for you to companies have been locked in a race to get us hooked now some of them betting on a new strategy making us unplug. fund joins me now for more on this story welcome conflicts talk us through the problem yeah i mean really the thing is our attention is now worth a lot of money to these tech companies the more time we spend scrolling through facebook or twitter on our phones the more money these companies make from advertising right so there's an incentive to make these devices as addictive as possible and really that is the biggest problem i mean we've all seen scenes like these ride people just on their phones of the last year more than a quarter of smartphone users use their device seven hours or more per day
4:44 pm
