european union leaders are meeting in brussels tonight they had hoped to break the deadlock over a deal for britain to withdraw from the european union shortly before the summit german chancellor angela merkel said that she was optimistic that a deal could be done british prime minister to resign may she told most reporters that most of the issues have been resolved although differences remain over what is known as the northern ireland border backstop now both sides say they want to ensure that there will be no physical border between northern ireland which is part of britain and the irish republic once breaks it is history of what we've seen is that we've so place to be she's in withdrawal and grievance there are still there is still a question of the northern irish faxed off but i believe everybody around the table wants to get a deal and by working intensively and closely we can achieve that deal i believe
a deal is achievable now is the time to make it happen. on the european side the leaders said that there is a willingness to strike a deal with britain but that there is a long way to go. brics it must be altered for everyone and for for the issues including and i don't have out. so we need much time much more time and we continue to work even next weeks for. a million patient divine due to be sealed with a time in we want good relations with the u.k. we would have liked the exit deal to be ready it's only ninety percent done and there's work ahead of us but i'm approaching it in the spirit of doing everything to reach a deal that would be better for everyone to see the state of the islands that it's
a. that was the german chancellor speaking there let's take this story now to brussels our correspondent max hoffman is covering the summit for is good evening to you max you know what michel barnier said there we need more time that is the takeaway tonight isn't it everyone seems to be in agreement that they simply need more time to work on the brakes a deal are they simply kicking the brakes it can down the road. i think they're not just taking it they're trying to solve some issues but it appears brant that they've come as far as they can technically i don't know if you remember last weekend it seemed like we had all the elements for a deal at hand in brussels there was a real feeling that the deal could be concluded at this summit until it became clear that theresa may would be unable to sell it back home in the u.k. the front line has shifted it's no longer between the e.u. and the u.k.
it is within the u.k. the real question is what can to recently sell a home against the braggs of two years for example also against the socialist it's going to be a very very hard sell for her and one strategy might be and that's why we're seeing this can being kicked down the road to build up as much pressure as possible and in the end have to reason a present what she has achieved in the e.u. and then she asked everybody ok are you really going to vote this down or not and when is that going to happen because you know you my friend and i we have covered many of these summits and we have late night summits saying that this is a crucial summit for brags that this is the make or break summit i mean how many more of these summits will there be. on the topic of brags that the number is not going to be very good although i enjoy him of course with you brant but the thing is they need to finalize a deal you know i'm not going to say it's november because some here say it december is will leave enough time for two to ratify everything some even say
january might be enough but the. the essence is that the united kingdom is going to leave the european union on the twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen so that's where it stops they need to find something way before that my guess personally i guess but like i said no guarantees here as they need to find something at the latest at the end of december beginning of january and was there any sign tonight that european council president. is willing to announce that there will be another summit because you know that had been a matter of contention about whether or not he would set a date for another summit. the thing is they all said they think it's still possible to reach an agreement and that they were all ready to continue the negotiations so it's hard to imagine dono toast coming out saying we're all still willing to talk but we're not having that summit in november so most likely
the summit will take place the question is what will it be about will it be to finalize a deal with the u.k. or will it be to talk about the no deal scenario on the e.u. side and what to do by the way that was contingency planning have begun and one part of the evening year tonight is as we speak at the moment brant is the commission presenting its plans to the leaders for a no deal scenario that's probably taking up more time at the moment than talking about what kind of concessions they can still make like i said the feeling here is the e.u. has done most of what it can do to reach a deal and now it's up to the u.k. . and the probability of a new deal brics it stronger than it's ever been max off and on the story for us tonight in brussels max as always thank you. javier is here now and businesses companies they're watching the uncertainty in the balance and they don't
like that of course they are very worried about what's going on because they can't plan ahead we just heard some it's come some it's go it's question after question that still needs to be answered and for a business owner the bricks of confusion means that they are actually losing money that's expensive that's why people are getting more anxious by the minute. to have a look into just how the european union works you can head to monaghan in ireland silver health farm is a piece of living europe. these ducks hatched in northern ireland part of the u.k. then they're brought to the republic of ireland to be fattened and slaughtered and then back over the border in northern ireland they're packed for delivery while every dog crosses the border at least three times during its life sometimes four sometimes by the fact of the border has been there for twenty years a lot of business has built up on the hood to be a sense of the free access to both during the troubles with the border was there
like this was a top area to get employment it was possible to find and no one wants to go back to that's it's not something london wants to return to either but the border between the republic and the north remains a huge point of contention and breaks that negotiations feathers are getting ruffled partly because the united kingdom itself is divided on the issue of bragg's that and the complexity of the negotiations are little understood. it's confusing we don't know what's going to happen in one day they say that one day they say that you don't know what's going i know about bret's it would be so confusing nobody knows what's going on that somebody told me i'd spend breadsticks or me just as mystifying the majority of irish ducks that are eaten in great britain are marketed and billed as london ducks the u.k. is a mass importer of food so they only produce enough to feed sixty percent of the population so forty percent of their food would still have to be imported the price will be increased by thirty percent and on the category that's going to have
a massive impact on their or economy you know people's ability to buy food so britain had better get all its ducks in a row before march twenty ninth. later with more business news back to brest for your thank you at least nineteen people have been killed dozens injured in a shooting in russia annexed crimea the attack took place at a college in the black sea port of. all russian authorities say an eighteen year old shot his fellow students and then killed himself. the drama unfolded at around noon with what sounded like an explosion conflicting reports followed some spoke of a bombing fueling suspicions of a terror attack on the crimean college by the end of the afternoon it had become clear that the victims had been shot. at but it's in the below the identity of the young man who arrived at the college shortly before the incident has quickly been

have entered these all the council's residence they've begun their investigation what have they failed they reported they were looking for remains of the journalist body weren't they. that is one of the objectives of this operation but we understand from sources linked to the investigation they have already uncovered what they claim is forensic evidence similar to what was recovered at the saudi consulate confirms they suspicions that he was indeed that in fact following those discoveries they went back to the saudi consulate building to carry out a second investigation possibly searching the same place that they have recovered these initial claim forensic evidence so they do appear to be making progress and thorough searches of both buildings are expected in the coming days. more gruesome
details emerged today about how mr. died what did we learn today. yeah this was from a newspaper linked very closely with the turkish government they publish what they say was a story that was taken from all the recordings taken in the last hours of detention at the saudi consulate they claim that those ordeal recorded him being brutally tortured and one one part of the newspaper article suggests that he had his fingers cut off during the interrogation subsequently he died and thereby he was his body was then dismembered now they say that also apparently during that was those brutal events of the saudi consul general was present as well as a number of other figures that were linked to this so-called saudi hit team that arrived the same day now i have to stress that this hasn't been cooperative turkey has claimed that they have had all the video and all the recordings for several
days after disappeared none of them have appeared and in fact the u.s. president on the trump today does appear to be losing patience he says he expects to see and hear these by the end of the week we will see whether turkey can deliver them. we're talking about. searching the residence of the consul general in. what we heard about the consul general she left turkey in a hurry yesterday what happened. indeed. he did leave very quickly just before investigators started to do a search. has made him a key person of interest now there have been reports that he has even been removed from his position back in riyadh to the have to check that hasn't yet to come but certainly he is a key person as is the bodyguard mohammed bin the crown prince he too is also being identified by authorities as
a possible ringleader of this operation and there are growing calls for the diplomatic community to be lifted of anyone involved allegedly in the disappearance of a saudi journalist our correspondent on the story for us tonight in istanbul story think you very much the islamic state jihad his group was driven out of a declared capital in syria one year ago local militias fought them on the ground as u.s. planes bombed them from the air now the fight for the city of raka lasted for months and sold thousands of people killed the city is now free of yes but it lies in ruins reporters are getting and. with their with the u.s. army to look at what the united states is willing and not willing to do to help the city recover. abdullah is happy to see us in his classroom it's a place of safety where he can finally learn and play with other children. it's the
years since he lost his hand he and his friends started fridge which had a booby trapped inside. care bear we were playing with it and it exploded two children next to me died and an old man was badly hurt. by i was to buy a piece of shrapnel here two of my friends died in. high file ali teaches the special class addressing the particular needs of disabled and traumatized children she wasn't allowed to work at all when the high s. were in charge. all she says about that time is that it was hard for everyone i haven't and. we noticed the children freeze up whenever they hear shots and explosions which i still frequently are. there they completely unsettled. that
i may do it or when. the united states funds the class we are on a trip organized by the u.s. army and state department they want to show us what has been achieved since the victory over as in russia and they want to encourage small countries to fund the stabilisation of the city. this week eureka measures during our visit here in the arca a very very tight they have been several terror attacks over the past months and there are still i as sleeper cells operating in the city. the fight against the so-called islamic state in russia which included u.s. airstrikes destroyed more than seventy percent of the city. there's not much left barely any hospitals homes or anywhere to live and no mains electricity but people are slowly coming back. we really need work they don't have work you can't eat or drink work is the most important thing we shovel hammered out
luckily some schools are opening again and we registered our children my daughter was not allowed to study under i.r.s. now she's in the first grade even though she's older but still she's allowed to study that's not the fact that the u.s. has been giving what it calls stabilization eight to rocka that means clearing mines and rubber repairing buildings and supporting local people but it doesn't mean large scale reconstruction well the united states has said that in terms of rebuilding there can't begin until we've got here reversible progress towards a political solution through the geneva process and so that's what we're looking towards it's. irreversible progress on the political front the future of syria is being negotiated far away in geneva by the u.n. sponsored talks there have stalled and in rocka the pressure is on. the longer reconstruction takes to begin says coach elfric cassava councillor stepha the
greater the danger that i as my tree gained support among the people. the help offered so far is like um but it's not enough meeting with the u.s. representative the council vent their frustration they've heard that us president on a tramp cut about two hundred million dollars from serious stabilisation ate. them in those who destroyed the city should rebuild it and what will we expect the coalition of the united states to help us with this they promised they would. fund now it's projects like this that's a civil council is focusing on the pairing rock us infamous stadium. the foreman and match tells us islamic state terrorists carrot out mass executions here and that they tortured hundreds of civilians in the cellars. i hope that the
stadium will be full again one day and the people will come and play sports here again like they did before the i.a.s. took control that's what we're hoping for. the first two games are due to take place here in a couple of weeks they could offer brief respite from everyday life in the ruins of russia. and our correspondents are here to will be with me in the day after the show to talk more about rocco one year after the liberation of yours back now with more business thank you very much brant yes we do have to take a look at the numbers to put you up to speed with the latest business headlines we're going to start with netflix the company big in. bester expectations to add nearly seven million new subscribers in the last quarter and streaming service reported that profit more than tripled from a year ago and revenues remain strong and flicks has invested heavily in the original programming but investors have worried about subscriptions keeping pace
new figures boosted the netflix stock more than four percent over to our new york financial correspondent jim acosta hi yes well it seems like netflix could do to t.v. what amazon did to retail is that right well i mean in a certain sense yes but then again there's also some competition out amazon the company you just named there's also into the streaming business or on demand programming but yes i mean almost every second household in the u.s. has a subscription of netflix so that is quite impressive number of the big question is what's going to happen when we look good further down the lion in the past for example studios like walt disney or warner brothers they actually hold their content to netflix but now disney or a t. and t.
the parent company of warner brothers they're building their own on demand services so the competition will probably increase for netflix but so far investors were thrilled by those numbers of the stock of netflix even before we got the quarterly results up so far this year by eighty percent and here in the rents this session added another five percent it's going to get stressful there but maybe it's a good option to go to canada then as canada legalize marijuana why are cannabis producer shares on a downer if we see this happen. well if you look what happened in the past couple of weeks it was a huge rally of the few kind of players on wall street those stock prices of those companies they tripled in the past couple of weeks so for once you could say well buy on the rumor sell on facts but then on the other side we also have to see what about global growth so far canada is only the second country on the planet
that actually also allows recreational use of cannabis at least on a federal level one big market for sure would be the u.s. market but it is not very likely at this point even if there is more and more support for the marianna business and here in the u.s. i mean it means a lot of text dollars but to really get those company and the industry going you would probably need other countries to follow what canada did he wants it called to from wall street thank you very much for the analysis. now for something for all you minimalists out there japanese telecom provider n.t.t. docomo is introducing a stripped down smartphone that's so small it can fit in your wallet its main function is to make phone calls or send text messages you cannot watch movies or play games on it but it certainly is easy to carry around weighing only a third of
a regular smartphone the company says more and more customers are looking for smaller smartphones. and i just know what to get bread for his birthday that is exactly what i wonder i wonder if the bill every month a small issue zero thank you very much by the head of the us a gymnastics has quit after just four days on the job mary bono says that she was forced to resign because of personal attacks against her and she was criticised for her opposition to a recent nike sportswear advertisement it featured former n.f.l. player and civil rights campaigner collin capering usa gymnastics has been rocked by former team doctor larry nasir being convicted of sexually abusing athletes bono's previous role in the wall for him involved in the nasir case also angered jim this. here's a reminder the top story that we're following for you top european union leaders
