a visit to kiev she promises a plenty of investment in the country to solidify its ties with europe. plus india's holding progress on women's rights reporters following a hyundai says she subject to constant sexual harassment find that including police officers heads the northern city of aa grow to find out more and. the documentary uses a novel method to show how some syrian refugees still live with the horror of war every day here in germany. i'm sumi so much god it's good to have you with us divers in indonesia have found a black box from the passenger jet that crashed on monday killing one hundred eighty nine people they hope the device. well shed some light on the cause of the
3:02 pm
tragedy the lion air boeing seven thirty seven went down just thirteen minutes after taking off from the capital jakarta authorities have asked families of the dead to try to identify their loved ones by looking at some of the belongings were treated from the sea. a body plucked from a watery grave the family a beside themselves villagers are on hand to support them as they grieve. a funeral of one of the victims of lion air flight j t six one zero but there's still no clear answer about why the plane crashed on monday. the investigation continues much more of the plane remains hidden beneath the sea surface. but since monday divers have located some of the body of the boeing seven three seven and now they found its black box one of the salvage teams
3:03 pm
said they dug deep and found it buried in the dead on the sea floor. salvaging the box from the wreckage means aviation experts can begin piecing together what went wrong. so we will let the transportation safety committee do their job. and we have requested boeing help determine the criteria needed for inspection. to find out the cause of the crash. knowing why the plane went down nearly fifteen minutes after takeoff will be of some comfort to the relatives identifying victims is a huge challenge a friends it team is examining body parts others a sifting through clothes and belongings to identify their loved ones the details are related to my husband's shoe we just wanted to be sure because those in charge of identifying the victims say we can help them with identification but they are
3:04 pm
not his shoes they are different they are red so i can confirm they are not his and it could take weeks to analyze the black boxes data but his discovery is a huge moment for the families of the nearly two hundred victims and for indonesia a nation once more in mourning. our southeast asia correspondent passed and heartache is following all the latest developments for us why did it take authorities several days to locate the black box. well apparently it's not so easy to find not only the black box but also the fuselage of the plane fuselage of the plane and for which which appears what you would think would be easier to spot now what makes it difficult divers say in the authorities say is that first of all the currents seems to be very strong the water isn't very deep it's only some thirty meters deep the current seems to be very strong down there that's what divers have to fight with also apparently there's energy
3:05 pm
pipelines down there which makes the search for anything that's. any parts of the plane or whatever they're looking for. more difficult as well now of course these flight recorders they send out signals so it makes it easier for the search teams to find them and of course the divers that went down there they had devices that allowed them to receive those signals and that's how in the end they found this one flight recorder now even once they knew where it was it wasn't easy to retrieve it because as the diver said who did bring it up to the surface they said they had to dig down deep as we heard in the report there's the sea floor is muddy and it was covered by debris as well so it wasn't easy to retrieve that and it's only one of two flight recorders that they found now they have to see what information they can get from that and that's a question how important is this black box what information are authorities hoping to glean from it. this is crucial in the
3:06 pm
investigation to any plane crash really the information that's on these flight recorders now the one that they retrieved is the data recorder which means that that's the recorder that has critical data of not only the engines but also of altitude of speed of vertical acceleration of all the instruments on the plane so they're hoping to find out if there were any technical problems we know that this plane experienced technical difficulties the day before the crash now the airline says that these technical difficulties were resolved before it departed on on that final flight now maybe with the with the data from the recorder they're going to be able to find out if there were any other technical problems now of course they're still looking for that other recorder which is the cockpit voice recorder so me. with all of this information how much closer are we to finding out about the causes of this crash. but i think this is one critical step
3:07 pm
and one very important step as i just said we're still looking where they're still looking for the cockpit voice recorder which records the conversation inside the cockpit and then the conversation with air traffic control as well so that's going to deliver crucial in for information as well now the authorities have said it's going to take some time to pull the data from that recorder and for a full analysis they said they might have a preliminary report within a few weeks or a month maybe but a full analysis is going to take several months and they're going to be it's going to take some time to figure out and they're not going to jump to conclusions i'm pretty sure because this was obviously a very brand new this was a brand new plane and the authorities have already said that these planes are they have to undergo further inspections now special inspections in indonesia but so far they haven't. discovered any problems so it's going to take a while until they really come out with with
3:08 pm
a conclusive report as to why that plane in the end actually crashed our south-east asia correspondent boston heartache for us thank you. let's catch up now on some other stories making news around the world a wave of severe weather in italy has worsened in the country's north causing widespread destruction at least eleven people have been killed many of them crushed by falling trees the storm that began on sunday also brought tornadoes floods and mudslides. and a breakthrough treatment using targeted electrical pulses is helping paralyzed people walk again nerve connections were reactivated with spinal implants in seven patients during a clinical trial in switzerland for the first time the group was also able to walk even after the simulation technology called dynamo was a deactivated. the world's oceans are warming much faster than previously thought that is the conclusion of a major new study published this week the findings are published in the journal
3:09 pm
nature mean that global warming may also be further advanced than previously stated scientists use the new calculation of the gases that escape the oceans to reach the result warmer oceans will kill coral reefs and marine wildlife and cause the ice sheets to melt faster. for more on the story we have later i'll break from science to help us figure this story out how serious is all of this it is quite serious we know that the oceans play a major role in global climate and for all life on earth let's say they balance the climate so when this whole balance gets out out of. it has a major impact on ecosystems all around the world this new study now suggests that . the oceans retained sixty percent more heat in the last twenty five years than it was previously previously expected expected and estimated. and even before the world was alarmed so now with those new data the goal to to keep global
3:10 pm
warming to one point five degrees it's even harder to reach it's going to be more difficult and we mention that scientists use a new calculation of the gases tell us how they reached this conclusion that the oceans have warmed much faster than expected yet they reached the conclusion by actually changing the approach before. temperature of seas were measured was measured by a floating system since two thousand and seven which measured temperatures in the water so now they change their approach to not measuring the water chorused character sticks by the atmosphere. the reason is that the ocean. ninety percent of the excess energy which is trapped in the atmosphere and when water heats up. able anymore to hold the those gases back so to release them through the atmosphere you can imagine that like when you have a coke or
3:11 pm
a mineral water and you let it in the sun and it heats up it also loses its gas and gets stale in the end so it's the same process and by measuring the atmosphere and the gases their oxygen mostly and carbon dioxide they know how much energy was released by the ocean and thereby they know how much the ocean heated up ok now with that we know this what are the consequences here. well the consequences are it didn't really it doesn't really change the consequences we will still see extreme weather conditions we will see sea levels rise we will see species go extinct but what changes is the urgency it's really more urgent than we thought before it's more urgent and how realistic is the hope do you think you touched on this already of remaining under this degree celsius target is that still realistic to be honest it's not really realistic i mean there's still a minimal hope some scientists say that the possibility or the percentage we can
3:12 pm
we so we could still reach this two percent target is under five to five percent which is really really small. but to change or to to really make an impact we need to change our way of life from from the bases we really need to cut emissions globally we need to change our way of production of industry we have changed every culture and not to cut forest stone anymore so we need to change our way of living basically to still made use of those five percent of hope and it's going to be a global effort there a layer of direction d.w. science thank you so much for your analysis thanks. thousands of google employees have walked off the job today to protest the company's lenient treatment of executives accused of sexual misconduct employees were seen staging war calls in dublin pictured here and also in london tokyo and
3:13 pm

to most american customers for that reason. was bad news for v.w. bring in. the frankfurt stock and straight downhill pull down the share price and how relevant will that be for the w.'s bottom line is that. you have very interesting gary when i was talking with an investor this morning about this situation he told me that he was pretty sure that most likely their share price off of volkswagen would go down it finished yesterday with a big class of two per cent and in the first minutes off the trading day the volkswagen shares were indeed for just a couple of minutes in the red and then they recovered now they are even here in the green zone with a plastic off more than one per cent and it seems to be the case that. analysts and investors are not as warrant at the moment because all of this if this goes through it's going to be an extremely a long approach that it can probably even take
3:15 pm
a couple of years until we would get a verdict from the courts here in germany and even if a court would rule in favor off that these are the car owners here in germany they would still have to go individually also through the courts so even more time would go by and i guess because of that investors and shareholders are not that war and we're even seeing this class here at the moment. in frankfurt for us thank you very much. the first smartphone with foldable screen has long been seen as the next big thing of the tech industry apple and samsung were believed to come up with the first but both have dropped the ball they were out small tid little known chinese company called royal which presented its device at an event in beijing when open the phone has a display measuring seven point eight inches that's bigger than any tablets first orders are going to be shipped in december the company says but the software seems

3:18 pm
of agression less than two hundred fifty kilometers from delhi to meet a twenty two year old t.v. journalist. queuing up put in assignment on the works but a television news channel. she's one of the few female t.v. reporters in the conflict of city of one point five million people after graduating with a diploma in journalism suddenly struggled to find a job one t.v. station refused to hire another six you could anchor but not work in the field so lonely refused to give up despite the challenges i mean they never. fear i the men i come across in my work police offices even reporters say things like come and have tea with me spend time with me meet me off to work i'll drop you home. some of them are really forceful it makes me uncomfortable and scared. i block these men's numbers on my phone i'm here because i want to be a reporter not because i want to spend time with many.
3:19 pm
today she's interviewing a group of men in the park she wants to get their views on women empowerment and gender relations at a time when india's me too movement rages on twitter many female journalists in india's big cities have alleged sexual harassment by senior editors and colleagues news of those allegations has also put a down to the men here have strong views about it you may lie yes these women who were speaking out were not oppressed or subjugated their professional qualified women why did they stay silent for so long and wife they suddenly found the energy to start screaming me to media that i don't think men are capable of harrison women the way it's portrayed in the me too movement the women making these allegations are just seeking publicity they want to be famous. and i guess that's going to get married for salumi to have a cement on the job is very real but she says she can't speak only of men was money
3:20 pm
say i can't afford to make enemies of the men who harass me what's the point of making a complaint if it's police officers themselves harassing me who do i complain to and who can i complain to about so you reporters. it's a question but the loonies boss dismisses recon started news twenty four a year ago he says the company has a zero tolerance policy but he still hasn't set up a complaints committee as mandated by india's workplace laws against sexual habits meant the decision to hire a female reporter at his channel is rare in our group but your hands reasons have little to do with the quality of the family finally he was want to see a female reporter they want to see how she talks how she reports they're attracted by that nowadays you see that everywhere even if you go to a shop you'll see that. women are appointed at the sales counters or at the checkout it's a way to attract customers for us to having
3:21 pm
a female reporter is about increasing our viewership imo ratings. for families in small towns like our grow there's an easy way to deal with the me two accounts stay at home in this conservative neighborhood few women work outside their homes so lonely come from a village in north india where goods are not allowed to wear jeans on phones laugh loudly or even speak with boys so looney has fought hard to get away she now has big dreams saloni wants to get out of our growth and join a national t.v. network in duty to get better training and work experience. the report from sonia found occur and she joins us from delhi with more on this story hi sonia good to see you so we saw in that report the female journalist you met experiences rampant a sexual harassment at work what options does she and women like her have that's right so we i mean she does sexual harassment on
3:22 pm
a daily basis and she's really afraid to speak out of the sleeve because she's fearful of the impact this can have on her career and frankly in small towns like our you know women like saloni really have few support networks because there are very few women who work in the field and there are very few redress and mechanisms you know india does have a law that requires companies with more than ten employees to set up an internal complaints committee to look into allegations of sexual harassment but there are many companies like that t.v. station are who simply do not adhere to we saw in the piece that me too in india is a big issue but in the big cities does this movement in a way ignore cultural realities that especially in the smaller towns and cities. well it's true that much of the kind of flood of allegations of sexual harassment that we've seen in india and recent weeks largely in the media in the film industry these have largely been confined to an english speaking minority on twitter have
3:23 pm
certainly been critics in india who say that we really haven't heard voices from smaller towns and green spaces where female reporters who face very different set of challenges as we saw in that report who really may not have had the means to leverage social media to kind of tell their stories so there is certainly that criticism here but there are women who are part of the meter movement who have come out with their own of kongs who say that this movement is really a sense essentially about the right to work for all women and to do in an environment you know that is not predatory all hostile and equal that is free off of titan mint and that really applies across the board and many believe that this will slowly embolden other women to come out and talk about their experiences and golden them from on of the right to work sonia as you said but the data shows that the number of women in india in the workforce is actually been falling for years is fear of sexual harassment one reason for that well certainly i think there are many many factors at play and there are also big differences i
3:24 pm
think in how the situation plays out with women in india as many different states but i think you're right that section how this moment is certainly a big factor that keeps women away from the workplace you know public a lack of public safety for women is often cited as a big barrier to employment you know for example. sitting like daley is considered a really hostile space for single working women and that's one reason why women the families often a hesitant for them to kind of move to other cities for work and i think generally speaking you know cultural barriers and social norms played. a big role in a big part of the problem on my day to be sonia foreigner reporting for us from delhi sonia thank you so much. thank you. now to the fallout from the death of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it's even having an impact on the world of sports tennis stars rafael rough on the dollar novak djokovic are under pressure to pull out of an event in riyadh next month now this follows allegations the

3:26 pm
last. so of course we're trying to take in consideration. all the options. i can see because as i said just the question before we have to get more information. on what's happening so we can make a rational decision whether it's good to go. world wrestling entertainment is also holding an event in saudi arabia this week despite the controversy there's no intention here to cancel business is business. in its quarterly statement w w e acknowledged a heinous crime but said the company has decided to uphold its contractual obligation to saudi arabia's general sports authority and stage the event. attracting big name athletes and sporting events is

a major goal for saudi arabia neymar in his brazilian teammates were in town last month for a friendly match with archrivals argentina images like this are priceless p.r. for a country trying to grow its sporting image. both abroad and at home where fans can see their idols up close but i hope this will just be the beginning and that in the future we'll have more games in every region of rio. not that it was the usual level and all that a lot although it was an indescribable feeling to watch a world class game like there's a story out of brazil or a very famous team some of the same argentine or a well known as well it was a wonderful game to me they did that for its general sports authority saudi arabia has invested heavily in sports if the exhibition goes ahead djokovic will pocket one million dollars each for their participation big money but at what cost. you're watching news still to come germany's angela merkel meets her ukrainian

3:31 pm
including the controversial expansion of a russian gas pipeline and the ongoing conflict near the russian border and therefore mediated the minsk peace agreement that russia and ukraine clinched three years ago but it has since been repeatedly violated. our correspondent nick conley is standing by for us in kiev with more on the story hi nick good to see you so chancellor merkel and president bush and co have met they've also held a press conference what came out of that could off news sumi well the expectation of this meeting have been very high given that this is angela merkel's first visit to ukraine since twenty fourteen since the high point of the war i think the press conference was notable more for what they didn't say than for what they actually said there was precious little talk of controversial issues like germany's plan to build a pipeline directly from russia which kiev says could cut ukraine off from russian gas there was little criticism from angela merkel of ukraine slow pace of reform and said they focused on the positives cultural cooperation growing trade i'm
3:32 pm
standing in front of kiev university where angela merkel is expected in time soon not to meet students this is really about stressing those ties stressing germany's commitment to ukraine's territorial integrity and leaving the difficult things to the behind the scenes talks nic we mentioned that chance on america has spearheaded many of the efforts to bring peace to the east of the country and the conflict there but why haven't those efforts really succeeded. the problem about minsk sumi is that it requires both sides to take a leap into the blind as it was so on the one hand it expects the ukrainian government to provide the separatists regions with a lot of autonomy and allow them to hold new elections in return the separatists are. expected to close off the border with russia and to allow international monitors to come in to make sure those elections are held according to international standards neither side seems willing to make that first step so it's
3:33 pm
really a question of a standstill until something changes and said she was disappointed by this that nothing had happened in the past few years but she was clear that there is nothing else except means she said minsk is the only mechanism that the international community has going forward even though there might be attempts to bring in un peacekeepers for instance or to try and improve the cease fire zones but fundamentally for all its difficulties minsk is the only way forward that at least was angela merkel's message today nic the chancellor's visit comes at a significant time you know at the end of this month it will be five years since the might down by the aleutian there in kiev how much support is there among ukrainians for continuing to move towards the e.u. well the polls all show overwhelming majorities for you membership more interesting the more interesting you though if you ask people do they actually believe it will happen in the next five or ten years and the picture is
3:34 pm
a lot more difficult people many of them disappointed by europe's reaction since the my down they feel that your hasn't done enough to come towards ukraine but they're also critical of their own government reforms that haven't happened that were promised let's take a look at how europe really caused those protests back in two hundred thirteen. this is how it all started with a handful of people taking to model square protesting against president a coach's decision to abandon a long awaited dissociation deal the much the fear of angering moscow within weeks the protests a growing to tens of thousands of people europe wasn't the only issue but the european flags were hard to miss. the protesters had no shortage of prominent guess from brussels showing this support among them the chief diplomat at the time catherine ashton it was three months later and present in a coach was gone fleeing to accelerate. just
3:35 pm
a matter of weeks later and ukraine finally signed dissociation agreement that over two thousand pages long it covers everything from animal welfare to judicial reform but asked most ukrainians what the association deal means to them and they're most likely on to two things travel and trade. no more queuing up for visas no more hefty visa fees for many ukrainians visa free access to the area has been the most tangible change. no surprise then the present person come out the end of these are the ones with a lavish ceremony on the country's border with you. under the terms of the deal ukraine also gained preferential access to european markets the e.u. has long been ukraine's biggest single trading partner since so see asian came into effect trade between ukraine and the block has been growing by over twenty percent
3:36 pm
a year but what the association agreement these people were protesting for didn't include was a firm promise of future membership instead it merely acknowledged ukraine's quote european aspirations decision makers in kiev hope that in time brussels would offer a roadmap to membership five years later and they're still waiting for the answer seems to be a polite but very definite no now. our correspondent in kiev nick calmly reporting for us there. was catch have found some other stories making news around the world is a mess and pakistan have blocked a key highway in islamabad to protest the release of a christian woman on death row for blasphemy hardliners in the capital are calling for us to be publicly hanged despite the landmark ruling she says she plans to leave the country. a human rights group says women in north korea routinely face sexual abuse by officials human rights watch claims the problem is so widespread that some women aren't even aware they're being violated activists claim the king
3:37 pm
and human rights record is being ignored amid an international push to improve relations. australia has announced it will relocate asylum seeker children sent to the pacific island of narrow by the end of the year under the country strict anti asylum policy arrivals are sent to remote pacific camps the decision comes after a string of reports of abuse and suicide on the island. so imagine learning how to drive without a car or learning how to cook without a kitchen that sounds difficult right while every day and on a students learn computer skills without actually having access to computers earlier this year one teacher uploaded some pictures on facebook showing how he deals with the lack of resources richard painstakingly draws the computer screen on the blackboard to choose just didn't see how to use programs like macro suffered the most capture of worldwide attention and we spoke to richard. show on facebook what happened next take a listen i'll tell you how i did this bit in
3:38 pm
a bit and out of it i'm so well loved it could be just to demo his book so i was like oh let me just take it because. they know how good best of things and people is that this would interest. it's going to be there today. i feel proud to be here so i wanted to do with the whole set up. all right list show as the host of this week's episode of what happened next he's been following the story for us highlights from no computers to a classroom full of them tell us more about how this came about. of the mean you know thousands of people are shared to those photos that were posted by rich korto and one of the people who was communion tech entrepreneur rebecca and on chong and she tweeted this she said hey microsoft africa he's teaching microsoft word on a blackboard surely you can get him some proper resources and the good thing is
3:39 pm
that microsoft actually responded the company sent twenty seven laughter as that was a donation from them plus other equipment and that other people were also inspired they started also sending in some donations so about one hundred computers in total and that means that the village now has two fully equipped computer lab where arteries one is at the school and the other one is at the village so that made mr michael obviously very happy as we saw in that video his school has computers what about other students and gonna. also high school students in ghana together with junior high school students have a subject that is called i.c.t. so information communication technology that they have to learn they also have to pass they have to do a national exam but the problem is that most schools actually do not have computers and the government is not providing enough equipment so that really poses a challenge to the teacher as the students themselves actually have to memorize everything they have to visualize everything so that they can pass those exams and
3:40 pm
which a doctor told us why that is a challenge to him and other teachers so probably well the end of the day she did not go to school. so whatever means whatever for tibet you have to take in order to be better like this in the future. we do it. so a very dedicated teacher there and of course of yours can get the whole episode on facebook that d.w. news all right let's thank you very much. to sports now in the second round of the german cup there were tight wins for bersa dortmund and shock against second tier sides but by laver couzin produced the performance of the night hammering much and five nil away there's more. so there six two drubbing of brave men on sunday later charisma back in the gold

muff is hardly recognizable anymore to drive the few miles to derry has become something quite normal in recent years derry is in northern ireland which is part of the united kingdom before the border was heavily guarded if you look for them you can still find relics from that time most people here don't want to go back to that the open border has brought many people jobs and a steady income it's also made the region attractive to tourists. one hears a similar story everywhere along the five hundred kilometer border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland. but it is making people here nervous for a long time now tradesmen have worked on both sides of the border businesses have branches in both countries and if hours long border controls were reintroduced the tourists who have brought the region modest prosperity would also stay away.

well let's talk about breaks it a bit more joined by author sullivan d.w. reporter g.w. business reporter who's just come back from them for us who grew up there know the area quite well you've just reported on how business businesses are dealing with the prospect of bragg's it what's the mood in the border region i would say of the mood is one primarily of worry and concern and also a lot of uncertainty. the main thing that it's thrown up is at the moment amongst business owners is that they don't know what's going to happen obviously we don't even know at the moment if there's going to be an e.u. summit in november or not we don't know when the next was going to be because the such uncertainty over the negotiations are going on as one business owner said to me when i was there politicians can make decisions at the last minute and be hailed as a hero but if a businessman leaves the tillis to make a decision it can be catastrophic for the business so it's worry and concern primarily prompted by the ongoing uncertainty over what would be the final

arrangement on the island of ireland today and brags that what our business is fearing most specially business is in that area that the border area between northern ireland and the republic of ireland their biggest fear would be a change in the current costanza arrangements that exist so obviously at the moment and for the last twenty five years you can ireland have both existed in the e.u. single market and their customs union which means that there's no customs checks or any sort of difference in the trading of goods or supply chains across the border any change that arrangement could mean substantial changes for multiple sectors from agriculture manufacturing freight transport and so on and so forth so they're worried about any changes that could either increase their costs in terms of production or that could scare off consumers and force them to either lay off staff or make any substantial changes to the business because when you close the border and you introduce customs posts everything in your business has to be started to start again describe to me how what was that border like before the good friday

agreement before. if he was as open as it is now but to tell you very quickly so the border was originally imposed in the one hundred twenty s. and up until the one nine hundred fifty s. there were calls to his posts but there was quite a lot of smoking went on it was quite taken quite seriously but it was simply across from the border and people could still get a cross relatively easily then once the trouble started they had nine hundred sixty s. gradually that became a militarized border with a heavy british army presence and substantial security checks and became quite a dangerous zone it was probably one of the most dangerous places in europe at that time and every you shared your membership and then the master treaty meant that the cost imposed gradually came down and obviously over the years the peace came to northern ireland so by the time that i mean i remember as a child and as a teenager in the ninety's there were a substantial army checks at that border but by one thousand nine hundred eighty the border was essentially invisible it was gone and that's been the case for the last twenty years and very briefly people are worried that could return absolutely when you're on

this is what you call a de facto dollarization process where a society abandons its own currency and adopts another one as a substitute this could be a defacto dollarization applied to the entire economy which is going to oblige the venezuelan government to adapt to what the society has already decided in a spontaneous manner. the clientele of these dollar stores or body gone is primarily well heeled venezuelans like doctors and lawyers who themselves only accept payment in us dollars but prices are out of reach for those living on bolivar based salaries in august nicolas maduro his government lifted a fifteen year prohibition on the free exchange of hard currency but the body gone is operate in a legal gray area and shopkeepers still live in fear of arrest. a
