this is day two of the news live from berlet signs of a breakthrough of bracks it's all eyes are on ten downing street after britain and the european union reportedly agreed a draft agreement for the u.k.'s withdrawal from the block of prime minister theresa may shed tools a crunch cabinet meeting for wednesday also on the program. a flicker of hope in the middle east as palestinian groups say they will hold cross border attacks if the israel does the same the announcement follows an upsurge in violence of the last two times seven and dad after israel launched airstrikes in response to miss
7:01 pm
ouster militants in the gaza strip. forty two to have been more than two hundred twenty missing california reels from the deadliest wildfires in its history a sole source is preparing to hunt for victims of. the democratic republic of congo faces its worst ever and both outbreak and international health chiefs want it will last another six months at least. i'm still going to welcome to the program the european union and britain have agreed a draft text of a withdrawal agreement which is prime minister theresa may will present it to her captors on wednesday but she's facing a stiff opposition to the terms from some of her senior ministers and it's far from clear whether she can get any deal approved by the british parliament rebuffed mr.
7:02 pm
mr crowley. so let's get more from barbara very rude those reports let's get more on this from barbara very well in strasburg mass in london welcome to you both and let's start with you barbara very so what do we know of what's been a great. careful careful we know that a draft text has been sent to the european from by the european union to london and that is the latest version of what the negotiators at the table in brussels could agree upon however at the e.u. site says there is no political agreement yet because all twenty seven other member states have to sort of look at this latest text they still don't know what's in it they still don't know what this latest version means now what we have is basically about forty pages a very densely gilt text regulating the so-called divorce agreement that is the conditions and turns on which britain will be leaving the european union on march
7:03 pm
twenty ninth next year and there's some there are some questions remaining about the all important detail ok so just just to be clear i'm not agree with the search but just the latest version of the back and forth now of course that the irish border has been the big stumbling block a vis far what do we know about what has been said there barbara. we tentatively know phil that jury's in may might have given ground on the irish border question because the latest solution said that britain will remain after the transition period will remain in a sort of customs union was europe and it will not test a unilateral clause was which it could suddenly was draw from that customs union and sort of let ireland and the irish problem dangle that was very important to the e.u. and we don't know quite yet whether the british side will swallow that all this is
7:04 pm
still somehow up in the air but we do see the outline and that would mean that a reason may has in the end sort of given ground on this all important question. in london premiership depends on support from northern ireland's democratic unionists who are adamant that the north must be treated in exactly the same way as the rest of the u.k. how are very likely to respond to what we know of what's been a great. well it's all in the speculators israel at the moment the we don't have any official statement from the democratic unionist but we know what they're looking for they want to be like you said be treated exactly the way the main and they don't want any kind of water between northern ireland and the mainland u.k. because they don't want to be somehow different they feel very close to the rest of the the u.k. and they don't want to be on the and this is how consensus the same as the republic of ireland so that's what they're looking for and they also want to have the u.k.
7:05 pm
the final say when this any possible backstop would come into place which barbara has eluded on which would mean that there is a temporary staying of the u.k. within the customs union that that could be time and they said by the case and not by the e.u. bought by the case so this is really what they had looking for so even if i'm agreement this is just the start of a fresh set of nightmares for the by the british prime minister because he then has to submit to cabinet to parliament. and as we understand this sort of to reason may as the big saleswoman has already started we understand that she's already seeing some cabinet ministers today and there is a form of that has been officially. published there's going to be a formal cabinet meeting tomorrow afternoon when the cabinet will either
7:06 pm
a sign off over the world sign off the deal so it's going to be an interesting night to see whether there might be any cabinet ministers who say that they call and live with this we know for example boris johnson he's been cited in british media that he said he would venture the in parliament against it of course he's not a cabinet minister anymore but that anything that keeps the u.k. very close to the e.u. such as staying in the customs union even if this is only as a backstop as a sort of last resort that this would be the worst of all worlds and that he would vote against it and he's not the only one who thinks like that there are other cabinet ministers and also many in the conservative party who have doubts about this very strong doubts that moment back at mass in london barbara faisal in strasbourg thank you. now to the middle east pilots militant palestinian factions in the gaza strip say they will hold cross border attacks if israel does the same the statement comes after the most serious upsurge in violence
7:07 pm
between israel and the palestinians since twenty fourteen israeli military has stepped up its deployment along gaza's border but house and mobilized its reserve force. correspondent tony kraemer has just returned to israel from gaza welcome tanya what's happening in gaza now. well for that we're getting his report states these are still unconfirmed reports set apparently a cease fire survives the say a calm has been reached with the mediation off egypt the u.n. and other countries between palestinian factions and israel this is still on concern because palestinians factions have basically said we would hold of it also israel would stop its tie and is very usually in these cases says they would reserve the right to respond to any impression we have seen. over the afternoon
7:08 pm
rocket attacks on southern israel as well as strikes in gaza so the situation is still very fluid and we have to wait and see whether this translates into an extra calm over the next hours but we're talking about what is effectively the biggest flare up in violence for four years is this really all about sunday's botched israeli special forces right. i think it's a combination of factors i mean you have to see that there has been a lot of pressure on gaza on all levels of the economic level of the central situation and the humanitarian situation but also it seems that hamas and other militant and political factions in gaza have been under the impression that they are. finding some understandings and mehdi ated by egypt again and by the u.n. with israel for a longer term if not a truce but then a longer term period of calm and this incident on sunday evening actually broke all
7:09 pm
of that it went against all these red lines and so they felt compelled to respond and that probably led also to this very hour to this escalation of violence you're back in jerusalem now much later than you do a ridgeley intended what happened. well i mean it goes they always have to expect the unexpected and as i said i mean do you think thinking you're going into a period of more calm but then this incident happened on sunday and it's always very difficult in restricted to go in and out of gaza as a foreigner at least but of course sometimes the border then in those. times is closed in this case hamas prevented foreign journalists for a certain time to leave the gaza strip because of the incident on sunday having said that i have to stress that it's much much more difficult also for gazans to actually ever leave gaza they're very restricted in their movements even in times
7:10 pm
of such as collations and also in times of war. when you cover a reporter and monitor some of the other stories making news around the world libyan leaders discussing the united nations plans to stabilize the country after seven years of turmoil it's the first time representatives of the country's rival governments and factions have met since may talks are being hosted by italy and come a week after the u.n. abandon plans to hold elections there in december. an australian man has been found guilty of murdering six people and recklessly endangering the lives of dozens more than a vehicle attack in melbourne last year the jury took less than an hour to deliver its verdict james gaga so last will be sentenced on in january. news network c.n.n. he's suing the trump administration of the revoked press credentials of one of its reporters the white house barred jim acosta from the press briefings after a heated exchange with president trump last week c.n.n. says the move violates the freedom of the press in triumph in the u.s.
7:11 pm
constitution. forty two people have been confirmed dead in northern california in the deadliest wildfires in the state's history the death toll is expected to climb the difficult task of recovering victims begins in the devastated town of paradise . the eerie off the mark of california's deadliest fires. coroners have been searching for bodies in the destroyed town of paradise the death toll is expected to rise. wildlife tentatively returns but the fires are far from over. fresh blazes continue to appear as firefighters attempt to bring the blazes under control. wildfires in california are getting worse year on year i've been doing this job for thirty one years and probably in the last by maybe seven years every year
7:12 pm
seems to get worse a lot of that has to do with the recent drought and the drought that we're still going through and with that drought killed a lot of vegetation and so that dead to taste and is prone to burning obviously climate change has made california extremely dry there are high winds every year and shorter bursts of heavier rain during the winter mean vegetation grows quickly but then dries out becoming perfect in different temperatures soar and the winds return but weather isn't the only factor over eighty percent of forest fires start due to human activity as opposed to say lightning strikes and faulty power lines are a big culprit california's main electricity company p.g. and e. is under scrutiny. the community of malibu where over four hundred structures were destroyed is barely visible from the air and additional factor is population pressure that leads to construction of homes in high fire risk areas what
7:13 pm
california needs most right now is rain but there's none for cost and a lot of people are interested in when the next rain event will be. we are not seeing any indication of precipitation in the next week and possibly through thanksgiving fine print conditions are here to stay californians for now can only try to adapt to what that governor is calling the new abnormal. germany's chancellor has addressed the european parliament in strasburg gliding her vision of a future europe i'm going to. lead us to reject what she called a national ngo ism and repeated her calls for a company yorkin approach to migration policy she went on to tell lawmakers that as far as far as i'm security policies go europe has to take its fate into its own hands. we should be working on the idea of one day creating a real european army.
7:14 pm
i. saw this then song your guy has shown claude young said four years ago a united european army would show the world that there will never be another war between european countries. it would not be an army against nato so i mean really going out of time rather it could serve as a useful complementary force to nato and no one intends to question the classic alliances i enjoy it limited but did have his box hoffman is out the european parliament in strasburg welcome max so we saw that and
7:15 pm
heard enthusiastic applause and heckling for this idea of a european army it's not a new idea so why the extreme reactions. it's not a new idea but it's the first time that the german chancellor put her weight fully behind it but you know we should talk to somebody who's really involved with this and that's david mcallister who's standing next to me who is also the head of the foreign affairs committee of the european parliament and of course a member of the european peoples party which is the party of angela merkel still mr mcallister were you surprised that i'm going to put her full weight behind european army here no i wasn't surprised i would like to commend the chance to have to say today because she made very clear that she supports our policy in the european parliament that we are calling for a closer cooperation on foreign affairs on security and on defense and that the way forward is to eventually create a european defense union and this includes of course european armed forces what did
7:16 pm
you make of the booing i mean there was applause standing ovations at the end but there was pronounced doing from i guess the right wing populists of the parliament were you surprised. the chancellor got a huge majority of support today in the european parliament across party lines colleagues stood up and applauded for this great speech but yes there was some occasional booing from the far right i don't think this behavior is appropriate is it is inappropriate when the head of government comes to be up in parliament but we have to regretfully accept this behavior these right wing radicals are the real enemies of you know don't we have to get used to this because some polls are projecting even more right wing populists in the parliament after next year's election well the next u.p.a. lectures are going to be tough but it's clear and we are seeing that from the far right the radicals against europe starting bet big march against this european parliament the best recipe against these right wing populace is
7:17 pm
a high turnout and to always argue fact based because these right wing populists are always giving very simple very simplistic answers to very complex questions i still believe that the huge the silent. geraghty in europe will stand up and say no to these radicals did you have a feeling that i get a makeover today as the german chancellor was a lame duck because of what is happening at home she's no longer going to be the head of the c.d.u. or did you really have the feeling you had a powerful chancellor who can shape the future of your. think are colleagues of european parliament today so once again a very powerful german chance to discussing the important issues we are dealing with in the european union and also with a clear vision and do it. cool will remain chance after she gives up as a part of the day in germany until the end of this election period in germany what was your main takeaway of her speech my main take of her speech was she was
7:18 pm
addressing all the main issues we're discussing in the european union from a german point of view and i really would like to commend a call for a close of cooperation on phone of security and defense on the one hand and i also like that she was very clear when it comes to the rule of law that she make the of the european union is a union of common values and this includes democracy the rule of law just to name two david mcallister talking to us thank you very much and phil with that we go back to you to berlin. and strasburg fact here. this is years from. now and a stern warning for it's only coming from none other than the international monetary fund it's warned. off budget twenty nineteen say it heavy its heavy spending rather carried substantial risks and could lead to market more oil well the comments came hours before an e.u. imposed deadline for its need to submit a new draft budget brussels rejected very initial plan which would deficit spending
7:19 pm
at two point four percent of the country's g.d.p. italy is so fossett it will not change its plans arguing it must bend to pray state's economy invest a consensus of the showdown have led to a rise in borrowing costs. well our own going conflict between rome and brussels is a big concern because italy is not just any economy is the euro zone's third largest and whether it's mean machines like fed adi's and measure artie's old fashion labels like money gucci dutch and gabbana brands like the stand for each release economic power but despite a strong industrial base italy punches below its weight in several key areas for example economic growth although it's launched a number of programs in recent in the last decade rather to help kick start investment the southern european country remains stubbornly below average compared to the average of the european union now its new government wants to radically cut
7:20 pm
taxes to help spur growth but that could eventually lead to even higher levels of debt and ultimately end up breaking budgetary rules implemented by the european union so as ali and leaders have to submit a amended budget by midnight if they don't well they're setting up a clash that will probably end up rippling into markets. rome issued new bonds on tuesday a clear test of investor confidence uncertain buyers demand more return for the risk potentially costing the country more yet bond yields remain stable a sign that buyers still have faith in italian bonds but borrowing costs for rome have risen during the budget fight ratings agencies are partly responsible fitch and s. and p. downgraded their outlook on italian debt to negative moody's cut their rating to just about junk the fear is that italy's debt could get too expensive throwing the country into a fiscal crisis and indeed the budget dispute is about politics more than finance italy's populist coalition won office by decrying brussels involvement and lauding
7:21 pm
self governance echoes of which are still heard on italian streets. are we not a sovereign state are we not three to decide our own destiny of this you know what i mean defections of certainly being part of the european union and being one of the founding countries of the european union's italy has to respect certain restrictions and certain rules but i also think it's right that italy has a certain autonomy to try to solve local problems from which the e.u. keeps its distance i mean that while the might of the past and mr euro zone members are meanwhile standing with brussels fearful that italy's teetering debt load will make it the next greece if not far worse under its new budget powers the e.u. can find italy for budget deficit breaches but the bloc would need months to sanction a member state by then the markets will probably have to live at their own verdict . germany has earmarked one billion euros to support an alliance of companies
7:22 pm

there have been over three hundred twenty new cases and more than two hundred people have died of the disease since the epidemic began in august the treatment center is struggling to cope. effectively we are under a lot of pressure every day we received a number of suspected cases and three confirmed cases today we need more space we hope the team will find a solution for us. there is a vaccine against ebola to stop the disease from spreading twenty eight thousand congolese have received it so far but for people here at the treatment center the vaccination program comes too late. so she did a billion years of life from baghdad still to come one of the year's first anticipated books that space shuttles a former first lady michelle obama's memoirs are now on sale i'm convinced i must many other things she takes aim at president trump. so within not

7:30 pm
the difference. in history in the everyone. seems to matter to fish and the fish eyes. digital africa starts december twelfth on t w. this is the that we resign from voting on the galleys right top stories at the european union on britain of a greater draft text that withdrawal agreement british prime minister theresa may well not presented to her captors on wednesday she's facing stiff opposition to her terms for some often seen him he's. a former u.s. first lady michelle obama's refeeding he was a biography out today called becoming it includes a very personal revelations about life in the white house on lots of people in the
7:31 pm
obama's a hometown of chicago couldn't quite get their hands on a copy. lived in she cuddles high park for those first in line it's a moment of joy. michelle obama's old a biography becoming is finally on sale time for her fans to celebrate in her once favorite bookstore. becoming the former first lady tells the story of her life and many in her old neighborhood are proud of what she achieved. she is the go like greatest of all the time and she is a sitcom known woman just like me grew up a chicago girl sounds so for me she. she's like whoa personified she is someone definitely to look up to for little girls for young women my age makes you feel like you can do anything and often she is a real person and is
7:32 pm
a real real human being so i just excited to get this book. for the first time you shell obama opened up about details of her life that she kept secret for years her marriage and her time in the white house but she also writes about the obstacles she had to overcome as an african american she was accused of being unpatriotic i think i did what a lot of black folks were doing we were afraid to hope because it's hard to believe that the country that oppressed you could one day be led by. and they didn't think the country was ready and so my attitude was a reflection of that skepticism michel duster went to school with michelle obama and also became friends with her husband and later president barack obama a college professor she published a book about the former first lady and argues that we shall obama is an ambassador for the african american community. so i think for
7:33 pm
a lot of women they felt like wow you know i'm visible. because michelle obama is visible and accepted and adored i. can walk into a and b. be treated with respect. i could still bomb a story that this community and she coddle believes in. but with the man who succeeded him in the wind tunnels many here think there are chief moons are in danger. straits washington there where we join data because for them to marsh way to welcome. michelle obama has taken a pretty direct shot to donald trump in this book you know these are definitely the parts of the books that have been getting the most attention and she straight up calls him a massage honest says that she'll never forgive him for promoting this what's known as the birth or conspiracy which was a conspiracy about where barack obama was actually born that he was not actually
7:34 pm
born in the united states and again this is then what stirred up the most controversy prior to this book of course is a lot more in the book aside just her hitting on trump and there's been a lot of attacks coming from the right wing saying well this is what she was paid to do as she's cashing in trump by making these allegations even though there's a lot more to the book of and just these hits which we saw in the report that the admiration for michelle obama the hometown of chicago how is the book being received across the country. well it's gotten one of the biggest openings of any book recently shot to number one on amazon we should say long before it actually came out which i think was according to my notes this is one of the biggest opening sense june of two thousand and fifteen when the sequel to. to kill a mockingbird was released as we saw in chicago people they really they feel with
7:35 pm
her they feel like she's one of theirs they're mentally proud of her and if you're someone who's a member of the left wing in the u.s. she really is an icon and people have very much been looking forward to hearing the inside account of what her life was like something that she kept a very closely guarded during their time in the white house. as well as america's first block first lady michelle obama has faced in times public scrutiny she have a message for women. well as we saw in the in the report there phil women really look up to her especially african-american women in the u.s. and she represents the top of what someone can potentially achieve an american life and as someone who is descended from slaves it really was stunning to see someone like her in the white house and women across the u.s.
7:36 pm
not just african-american women really value her for her her vulnerability her willingness to be open to her her roots in the south side of chicago which is traditionally a very depressed area she really is someone who has universal appeal much greater in washington thank you. so we're looking at here some of the super heroes of the marvel comics the creations of stan the lady who died on monday he was on to his age ninety five not he spent his entire working life in the comic book business and eventually became the publisher of mom comics. let's get more from rob in maryland today's culture is that welcomed robin stanley is being talked about as a bit of a superhero himself what is it i mean as you said he spent his entire life i mean he started at the age of seventeen making the coffee for a company that eventually became awful comics he became the publisher and editor in
7:37 pm
chief and what's important about him use really hands on on the artistic side as well because he co-created a lot of favorite superheroes to you your favorite spot about why does what. i did already fix part of my the great he the incredible hulk the x.-men black panther more recently a many more and it's very significant about his super superheroes is that they will perfect they argued among. themselves some of them were vain bad tempered. despite about was trying to impress the go this made all of human qualities that made it much easier for the fans to relate to i think anyway lets him more about the man himself mr stan marvelous league. there. he was the man who revolutionized comic books stanley superhero of the marvel universe helped create
7:38 pm
iconic characters that have gripped generations incredibly sad like he's he's kind of one and taught me how to read a little bit you know alls like. one of the greatest of all times before the comic books while at marvel lee helped reshape the comic book world he's superheroes will complex characters complete with flows like. human strength. like a ball and. black panther. and the incredible hulk. but stanley's most famous character almost didn't come to be his lee recalling the time he pitched the idea of spider-man a troubled teenager to marvel my publisher said stan you've watched it he said first of all nobody knew i'd spidery so you can call it heroes by them and secondly
7:39 pm
a teenager can be a hero we can only be a sidekick and layers be said you say he's got all kind of problems don't you understand and he's a hero heroes don't add problems at troy very roads in their job but i know. lee knew what his fans wanted and his relationship with them remains an important part of his legacy. i'm what what's what they start elisa big fans also know is that he even appeared in some of these movies he did even after the company was sold to disney in two thousand and nine you remain the sort of unofficial figurehead of malvo and as disney brilliantly exploited the new superheroes that there quads lots of movies being made since then he appeared and here he is actually he must be ninety two. right here he's appearing as a mailman in captain america twenty fifteen he's also
7:40 pm
possibly a mailman this is him in fantastic four in two thousand and five and then he's trying to mow the lawn on water is god successfully next man the last stand and then inspired about three with tobey maguire is again he appeared in loads actually and he really a man synonymous with superheroes because and because they were flawed they broke the barrier between the audience and the artist so very very well and his contribution actually to pop culture is just enormous. robinetta thank you so much remember talking about stanley who has died in los angeles i ninety five. rocco in the struggle to prevent how response and violence against women think country basically imposed tougher penalties for bright domestic abuse and criminalized sexual harassment but critics say the measures don't go far enough now activists of launch the social media campaign aimed at enabling women to confront
