thought which could prove disastrous for the world's ice sheets coral reefs and all sorts of marine life and. the german chancellor because it's clear after talk of ties with ukraine i'm going to machall promises investment to solidify the countries that ties with europe. as well with killing off to mount a show of change makes sports stars reconsider playing in saudi arabia pressure on tennis champion traffic talent novak djokovic to pull out of an event in the kingdom is growing the backlash could cost south an extreme of becoming a major sports factor. i'm fogel welcome to the program divers in indonesia have located a black box from the line and passenger jet that crashed on monday it's open device will shed light on the cause of the tragedy in which one hundred eighty nine people
5:02 pm
died the boeing seven three seven went down thirteen minutes after taking off from the capital jakarta. the heat is on for indonesian aviation authorities they're under huge pressure to explain what went wrong on the line of flight and this could help them one of the plane's black box recorders recovered among parts of the boeing seven three seven plane. now that we've retrieved the black box. we hope to unravel the mystery as to why the plane crashed. one of the salvage teams said they dug deep to find the box that was buried in the debris on the sea floor. examination of the wreckage continues but it's tricky and slow going much of the plane remains hidden under the surface. slowly the bodies of the missing are being returned to land.

families of beside themselves entire villages banding together to support them as they grieve. once victims are down defied funerals can be held. identification presents a huge challenge for insect teams examined body parts and check fingerprints and dental records. clothes and other belongings are also helping confirming who died in the crash. 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're not his shoes they're different they're red so i can confirm they are not his knowing what the lion air flight went down nearly fifteen minutes after takeoff may help grief stricken families come to terms with the tragedy but it's likely to take weeks for investigators to analyze the black box down to and provide answers as to why this new aircraft crashed into the
5:04 pm
sea. of southeast asia correspondent batten hearting welcome back and let's start with this black box which has been betrayed and what sort of information does it hold. well phil that depends very much on which black box they actually found because initially they thought they found the flight data recorder that would record technical information from the flight from all of the instruments from the engines information like pressure vertical acceleration speed direction altitude these kinds of things but also what they're not but then at the press conference they said they're not one hundred percent sure yet if that was actually the device that they found because possibly they found the cockpit voice recorder that would record audio from the cockpit that would be conversations between the pilot and the copilot for example or with any other
5:05 pm
member of the crew possibly but also warning signals that from any instruments in the cockpit for example that would help investigators piece together what happened in the final moments of that flight so we don't we're not sure yet which one of those recorders they found but either way it will hold vital information for the investigators when they try to figure out what caused this accident feel so it's so it does look like we are getting closer to finding out. yes definitely but also the investigators said that it's going to take a while it's going to take a few weeks to download the data from that device that they found today and of course they're still looking for that second black box and then they might release a preliminary report in a month from now but a final analysis will not be released until. a few months later maybe six months even and they'll not want to jump to conclusions as to what caused this
5:06 pm
crash because that will that will have far reaching consequences so it's taken several days to to find this device is not unusual have they faced particular set but. well they know pretty much exactly where that plane went down and where they lost contact it's only a few kilometers off the coast of java and also the sea isn't very deep there it's thirty to thirty five meters but apparently what's been difficult is the current that seems to be very strong also the sea floor seems to be very muddy and also apparently there are energy pipelines down there so those are all things that have made it difficult for the teams to find pieces of that plane but these flight recorders obviously they found it because they emit signals that help the divers locate them and of course the divers that went down they had equipment that helped
5:07 pm
them receive those signals and that's how they circled in on the flight recorder but we heard in the report even once they had located it it wasn't easy to retrieve because they had to take it out of the mud and from under the debris so now they're looking for that second flight recorder and they're hoping going to find it along with the fuselage of the plane will. use asia correspondent passed in heart to thank you. the world's oceans are warming much faster than previously thought the conclusion of a major new study the findings published in the journal nature mean that global warming might also be further advanced than previously stated scientists reach these conclusions after using new calculations of the gases escaping the oceans oceans and lead to the deaths of green wildlife in the coral reefs ice sheets to melt much faster. they are from to do science can tell us more work or less so how serious is this
5:08 pm
well it is quite serious this new study suggests that that the oceans actually retain sixty percent more heat per year than we saw before in the last twenty five years it means that they've sixty percent sixty percent more each year that weans that they heat up much faster than we thought this makes the goal to limit global warming to too pretty to do to create degrees celsius or one point five degrees celsius much harder to reach. the if this research all holds up what does what will this mean well that means. let's say origin now we see that the global climate the global climate has heated heated up since the late nineteenth century by one degree and we experience the impacts so the study says that the future scenarios which. will see extreme weather hurricanes droughts
5:09 pm
floods will see the sea levels rise we will see species go extinct and many more. those future scenarios are not changed by the study but it says that this whole. dramatic scenario but a cure much faster much earlier than we thought so how did they come to these conclusions and what did scientists do they actually have a new approach they changed how they measure to see temperature anomaly it's measured by floating devices floats which are drifted in the water and they now didn't measure the water correct touristic spot the corrector six of the atmosphere just imagine. if you leave your coke or your mineral water if you want in the sun it will heat up right and what will happen it will release it will lose its gas and it will get stale. this is the same project process in the oceans so when the oceans heat up they won't have the ability anymore to to hold the gases to
5:10 pm
hold the energy and they will release it into the atmosphere so the scientists measured the atmosphere they measured oxygen and carbon dioxide mostly in the atmosphere and by doing this they could see how much energy how much gas the ocean released and that's how they saw how much the ocean heated up ok so i can't see any good news in here let's let's let's bring all this round to the climate agreement which was to limit global warming to under two degrees celsius it sounds like visionary calculation means that there's no point yeah let's write it. actually it's the paris agreement of two degrees i think is really unrealistic at this time scientists calculated last year that the probability that we could stick to those two degrees that we could limit global change to two degrees is at about five percent which is really little so it seems unrealistic even though we have
5:11 pm
this small hope of five percent. if three acts really drastically we need to change our way of life to. make use of this. you know good news in that at all but thank you thank you. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world the man charged with killing eleven worshippers a synagogue in the united states city of pittsburgh has pleaded not guilty to all forty four counts against him forty six year old robert bowers appeared in court as funerals were held for several of the victims prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for saturday's attack on the tree of life synagogue. women in north korea routinely face sexual abuse by officials in the killing to human rights watch the rights group says the problem so widespread that some women don't even know where they are being violated activists claim the country certain human rights record is being ignored amid international push to improve relations islamists in

5:21 pm
corruption there was very little talk about the north stream to pipeline which has been a source of quite a lot of disagreement chinky haven't belin. so it seemed really that this was an option chief angela merkel who hasn't been to kiev since twenty fourteen to really focus on underlining those ties and to talk about anything from culture to infrastructure she's meeting students behind me university rather than addressing the really difficult issues those i think were left for the behind the scenes talks you know i one of those issues of course being russia's annexation of crimea and chancellor merkel played a significant role in trying to mediate peace between russia and ukraine over the years why has this problem been so intractable. well indeed ukraine and its conflict with russia has been one of the defining issues of angela merkel's diplomacy in the last five years even she hasn't been
5:22 pm
here personally since twenty fourteen the problem with the mint's process which is most associated with is that it requires both sides kiev and separatists in moscow to make compromises but it doesn't make clear in which order so the ukrainian government's expected to give certain autonomy rights the separatists and in return kiev expects the expects the border between russia and separate tariffs to be closed and some of those fighters to leave. three years ago that was agreed since then there's been no secret process progress on that instead the shooting goes on the front line and it's at the moment a state of just trading accusations about whose fault it is that things on going further merkel said she was disappointed that there was no other game in town apart from minsk she mentioned un peacekeepers and other potential. options but minsk remains the only viable solution and she was there but that it

was commonly in ukraine thank you. tennis stars rafael nadal and novak djokovic under pressure to pull out of an event in riyadh next month this follows allegations that the saudis amounted to a journalist jamal khashoggi in the istanbul consulate roger federer has already turned down an invitation to a country that is desperate to shift the spotlight away by on a dollar a novak djokovic or two players at the top of their game and major star attractions which is why they've booked to play this exhibition in saudi arabia a country now firmly in the spotlight after the legit involvement in the murder of dissident journalist jamal khashoggi. not to mention its role in the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis in yemen despite increasing attention on the actions of the saudi arabian government both players gave choreographed responses this week of course i am aware of all the situation. but i had
5:24 pm
a commitment. journalist lost the life i want. something happened. so of course we're trying to take in consideration everything all the options but right now i can see more through 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. let's get more on this from nick mcginn who's a human rights researcher specializing in the gulf region welcome to d w how important is it for saudi arabia to push itself as a venue for a big sports events. it's very important it's a bit of a departure for them but since mom of instalment came into effect of four in saudi arabia he's been intent on changing the reputation of the become of the country
5:25 pm
painting himself as the great performer and opening up the country to. investment really and and a key part of the lot is enhanced in the country's image which had been. not there i think for a way out of a bad human rights record in sports a great way of doing not getting people a joke which in a doll in into the country and having them splashed across the international press playing inside it if there is it's very helpful when you're trying to do that so now the. killing on saudi arabia making the headlines for all the wrong reasons what sort of impact do you think that will have on. prince's efforts. i think is through interview spawn or in the works to be honest i mean he would've thought he was flying quite high he didn't it just removed all the bomb women driving in saudi arabia and he had quite successfully managed to get
5:26 pm
a lot of support for this narrative that he was a reformer and perhaps it was this it was this your breasts that led to the khashoggi incident. but that was as well as being a horrendous crame. a strategic misstep. we've seen seem a lot businesses billowed of conferences in saudi arabia and you know seeing this pressure on on people like nidal there are and you know of course you've got the specter of the yemen war with those and people have been killed children women in hospitals funerals bombed all done largely by a campaign that was waged by compton solomon but yes this this murder of the journalist and started to show he has has really been the incident that's causing him the biggest hazy headache and briefer you talk about this narrative as a reformer when we talk about the crown prince and it sounds like you believe that narrative to be a false one brief answer if you would. i'm not the greatest thirty
5:27 pm
expert in the world that i don't claim to be but the people who follow the country closely assume is that narrative starts because the press rubbished it and said it was nonsense and said that people needed to be very careful about this person because it was very dangerous and so it's proved who took it to thank you for joining us i think you. top story of this hour divers in indonesia have found the flight data recorder from the lion at plane that crashed on monday coming one hundred and eighty nine people to help the device will shed light on the cause of the tragedy. in situ up to that so more of the top off each hour of course around the clock on the website that's d.w. dot com have a good. mood
