the war in yemen. in the key battleground of what data there's a respite in fighting for now but yemen needs a long term plan for peace the after the last round of talks broke down dats will be a major challenge. and saudi arabia is coming under increasing international pressure over the killing of dissident journalist jamal khashoggi germany has announced eighteen saudi citizens are to be banned from entering europe's visa free showing and travels on over their suspected involvement in the killing german foreign minister who called moscow berlin issued the ban after consultation with france and the u.k. adding there were still quote more questions than answers about the case or germany is calling for a transparent investigation into the murder of a prominent critic of saudi arabia's ruling family. alright well for more
7:05 pm
i'm joined now in the studio by d.w. political correspondent kate brady get good to have you here in germany has imposed this this ban that's the news of the day but it applies to the whole passport free schengen zone explain how does that work exactly so any member of any member state of the twenty six men the shang and saw and cut imposed unilaterally impose this ban on anyone that that specific country considers to be a security risk of course what really is quite unusual in this case is that germany has decided to impose a ban on so many people at one time and of course in this particularly. delicate case as well and of course we don't know if the royals are part of this list of people we'd like sadly of but in this particular case as well it would also apply to people who have a diplomatic who would usually be removed or excused from these kind of course but
7:06 pm
we don't know we don't know there are people in iraq that has not been disclosed at all right now the german government also made an announcement today about weapons exports to saudi arabia they had a change of heart exactly well a month ago we heard from merkel that there would be an end. to any future to any story already agreed. it wouldn't approve any new weapons exports but what we heard today is that a halt is now in place on all exist in weapons exports which of course is a huge decision for germany to take saudi arabia was germany second largest arms exports coast most of course with the travel bans in place and now the halt on exports i was this is two very significant moves made by germany today those are very very huge steps what is germany berlin trying to achieve here what's the endgame well as we heard from. it's very much the fact that germany still sees.
7:07 pm
already doesn't see any sufficient answers from the investigation into the death and that there are to court still more questions than answers so of course these measures being taken so far certainly might not be the end mahsud as well you know they germinate still retains the right to impose more measured so this still might yet be more measures to come depending on how the investigation goes and whether germany thinks that those suffice what's the state of the relationship between riyadh and berlin at this mall at this moment well it's been a really interesting development to watch rating it was a. early in all tim. very strange diplomatic ties between the berlin and riyadh really thought for the first time in almost a year they were there was a very tense situation between saudi arabia and germany for the best part of last
7:08 pm
year and that largely came off the back of some criticism made by the former foreign minister gabriela and he criticized saudi arabia's foreign policy in lebanon and that led to a very long cold period between riyadh and butlins of course these measures come at a very difficult time just as diplomatic relations were getting the go ahead again now it's you know one step forward ten steps back and that in turn shows the severity and how seriously germany is taking this case you know to people have of course want to rethink your. and i will be handing you over an hour to have your i get us because the arrest of an iconic c.e.o. has sent shock waves through the worldwide car industry have and that is because it is hitting one of the big players of the industry a big player in japan as the chairman of the alliance of nissan renault and
7:09 pm
mitsubishi motors carlos ghosn has been arrested on suspicion of under reporting his income and engaging in what the company called other quote significant misconduct speaking earlier this afternoon the send c.e.o. said he had called a board meeting for thursday to approve goans dismissal as chairman of the company on suspicion of understating his salary in japan by forty four million dollars over five years starting in twenty eleven before now carroll's gone was seen as a star car manager credited with leaning a dramatic turnaround at nissan over the last two decades rescuing it from near bankruptcy. carlos ghosn is regarded as one of the most dazzling managers in the automotive business after all he has the partnership of red mitsubishi and nixon and his belt. but he's been under investigation for months now. the japanese carmaker says an internal investigation shows go under reported his income for several years going is also said to have used company money privately. board of
7:10 pm
directors now needs to decide whether it will dismiss him as the head of the japanese carmaker according to the japanese newspaper asahi gun is cooperating with authorities and has already been questioned. go on has been caught in the cost killer since his time at the top of run and some credit him with bringing back on the road to success after years of high losses and debts. all right i'm now joined by stephen beardsley from our digital business desk to find out more about this whole issue that is going on right now stephen our viewers might not know carlos go on but we just saw that the industry certainly does who is karl's goal what can you tell us about right so carlos gone brazilian born lebanese parents sort of the world's global figure five languages fluent also speaks in japanese very much sort of
7:11 pm
a manager's manager someone who slash costs when they're there wants to care about the bottom line before everything and often angers unions and workers the reports today the french unions were very happy to hear this news that they'd crack down because they long been critical of his cutting costs but of course he became known as low cost cuts or because in france especially has acted with renault with cutting costs there to make them profitable and with nissan is really his big success story that a turnaround where a company that was bleeding hemorrhaging money you know margins were incredibly small and he turned it around so they were making dynamic interesting vehicles but he's really also known for being an architect this alliance between renault and nissan and bring it to a point that it could compete with big players like v.w. by pulling resources this past year they sold ten point six million vehicles second only to volkswagen and they've been ahead on things like electric vehicles for example so it is a big success story but we know that nobody's perfect and he certainly has been controversial as well what are some of the issues that the company has faced during
7:12 pm
his time right i think you know most recently we've seen twenty seventeen they had an issue with some inspections that forced the recall of more than a million vehicles that was a black eye earlier this year they had an emissions scandal which is unfortunately not unusual mugs car companies that was another black eye lately there have been reports that some of the rivalries between sort of the nissan side of the renault side have really been flaring up again especially as the car industry moves toward the sort of more technologically digitalize future they're having a sort of share some of these resources are having to use similar plot. forms an r. and d. costs and that can lead to a little bit of tussling and then of course the big one is compensation this is where lately or in the past few years the news you know he's really been it's been a controversial figure with how much he's being compensated and what the board wants to approve we've talked about the past and the present let's look into the future certainly investors are not happy with what's going on are there problems ahead for neeson i think most people would say sure i mean everything was really based on carlos gone i mean he is the key figure he has been called the glue that
7:13 pm
holds this alliance together and he even joked himself that when his time came to leave this was laid to be twenty twenty two not twenty eighteen that there are a lot of people worried about the future of the alliance that was a joke with a lot of fact in it actually because it's very difficult combining japanese side with the french side and taking all these interests you have to governments that are involved with this and of course mitsubishi a third company as well and so it makes all of these decisions very complicated and you need this individual in the middle he was that individual uncertain times ahead and he's and stephen beardsley following the story for us thank you very much. i'll be back with more business news later on till then speculate thank you have a half. kong now where the leaders of twenty four teens pro-democracy protests are facing trial if convicted he faces up to seven years in prison activists gathered outside the court to show their support many carrying the yellow in brazil is associated with the occupy central movement off four years ago you may recall tens

7:19 pm
a disconnect between business and then m.p.'s to just up the thames a lot of m.p.'s are plotting to brings reason a down because they think it's not good enough these are very difficult times here in terms of politics in terms of the fever on nature decisions and there are some very big issues here around sovereignty around other things that people care very deeply about and we as business understand that but what we have to do is to think about jobs and prosperity across our country our manufacturing sectors of food retailing we need to talk about what matters for them and we are very clear in our conversations with m.p.'s these are the decisions that were shape you'll reach in your part of the u.k. in the future make the right decision for the future of the people who work in your local region this is progress we should take it we should build on it and we should move on and would you advocate for a second referendum since you are so pro remaining in europe. we have to
7:20 pm
work with the cart in front of us at this as a business we have to be pragmatic we have to be realists and we have to recognise that this is where the new go. station has brought us so far we understand the views of those who are asking for a second referendum we do now know much more we know about the hard choices involved in it but the pathway to that is very unclear it's very murky on the risk of tipping into an accidental no deal on the way is very high that makes us believe that this is the decision that we should be taking as a country now to take this progress to unlock the transition period to work towards a good future deal and to move on and how bad would it be for british business if you didn't get to deal at all we are absolutely categorical that a no deal for british business would be a very very bad outcome we have so many manufacturing businesses with supply chains
7:21 pm
to cross borders they work on just in time policies we have a northern ireland border which must remain frictionless that is not easy to achieve so from our point of view no deal would be a very bad outcome it would affect jobs and prosperity all across the country karen fab and thank you very much. all right as we have to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world. at least thirteen people have been killed in south central vietnam after a tropical storm hit the resort of not trying city several houses were also destroyed after torrential rain triggered landslides authorities have mobilized soldiers to search for several missing people with. guatemala as the volcano of fire has erupted forcing thousands of people living nearby to be evacuated from the area disaster coordinators have issued a red alert in june around two hundred people were killed when it erupted and

a proper toilet it's been sued if you called for more to do if you go to the. streets ourselves. the way they relieve themselves is disturbing to those of us living here because out in the open everyone can see them the government should have some woman who inside and then poured into the river it's not good. twenty million people live in this overcrowded mega city bad hygiene and the lack of sufficient toilets and danger in people's health in the poorer districts ironically more people have access to mobile phones than toilets. these kind of warnings can be found all over lagos yet many people are ignoring it because there's no alternatives but the lack of toilets is also an opportunity for some business people. near a bus station jeremiad jerry installed some porta potties now he makes about thirty

the orientation of the mentality of people because if you see just what a dozen people know that if you even told them. they were to tell you would you prefer to go into the bush that if they do love it as the bridge would be blowing this doesn't mean it's just no good for us so our cities don't just absolutely just need to put on disk. strict measures to stop all this open dedication and sanitation the governments did scrape an emergency plan up until now almost nothing has changed the toilet crisis in lagos obviously remains a problem that needs an audience solution. the death toll from the wildfire near the devastated town of paradise in california has now risen to seventy seven fire crews continue to battle the blaze the deadliest in the state's history and president visited the area over the weekend there and while
7:35 pm
touring the devastation he offered some fire prevention tips he said he had learned from finland. the president of the should we have a much different we're a farce they should be called it a farce. it is but a lot of reiki and cleaning and doing things that they don't have any problem with what it is it's a very small problem. but the finnish president says he can't recall any raking comments and many fans have been taken by surprise and you don't use social media editor column as when it is in the studio to tell a smore and lightness about this whole waking issue so what are the finns saying about their alleged forest making their alleged forest breaking look finland it does have a lot of forest about seventy percent of the country is forest relatively few fires as well so the part is correct but the countries like the fires really has more to do with a strong early warning system than it does with with breaking so we're seeing a lot of things with some rather amusing responses on social media to trump's break
7:36 pm
comment we can show you a few of them here and apparently this is a finnish firefighter posing with their secret weapon holding up that it would be the very others calling this break news not fake news you see one toting firefighter here for claiming not on my watch. and you know why stop and rakes when you can bring in the big weapons how about a vacuum cleaner for the finish fire prevention there are many americans not holding back either this is the coverage yesterday the new york daily news calling for trying to make america great again you know we're able to joke about this one comment from but of course these fires not laughing matter the deadliest in the state's history dozens of people have died so far as you mentioned earlier this is a bad scene there of course but when it comes to these kind of comments hard not to laugh it's hard not to laugh sadly but what do fire and force experts have to say on this issue i mean wildfires in california very complicated there's
7:37 pm
a lot of factors at play here one of them is of the state is so dry it was going through the worst. out in the state's history probably exacerbated by climate change so many californians they are fed up with these sorts of misleading statements from the president is not the first one when it comes to him essentially trying to blame these wildfires on poor forest management on the part of california and now we're even seeing from supporters themselves essential calling him out and this is a journalist here with a quote from one man whose children lost their homes in the fires he says my kids lost everything i voted for him and now he can kiss my red bus and what he said was ridiculous and hurts my heart a lot of us voted for him and now he's talking down to us paradise it's in an area of california where there are a lot of trump supporters actually a little bit of a rural area there of course but you know these fires they didn't happen in forested areas despite what trump keeps repeating. even if they did more than half of california's forests are actually under federal protection so in that case the
7:38 pm
president's not california would be in charge of breaking the forests but either way a definite a tragic scene there in california of definitely yes congressman thank you so much as always. and we're going to stay in north america because hundreds of residents from the mexican border city of tijuana have staged a loud protests at the arrival of a migrant caravan looking to reach the united states but migrants are part of a large group of central americans who have been making their way through mexico while they want to claim asylum in the u.s. some three thousand migrants have reached to wanna in recent days but as their numbers swell frustration is growing at what some residents perceive to be illegal immigration. detention on the mexican border with the u.s. is building. thousands of honduran migrants who arrived into who are now on their way to the u.s.
7:39 pm
but people here don't want them. yes the protesters into juana see the migrants as a costly burden on the danger their rhetoric echoing the words of u.s. president trump who's frequently called the migrant caravan an invasion. because the embassy building a sex soko has always been a nation that opens its doors to anyone who needs help but there are correct ways in which i can enter your home asking for it this was not the correct way. not by attacking the authorities representing this nation not by knocking down barricades the mexican state has set up this shouldn't be allowed. mexican government estimates say as many as ten thousand migrants could soon be in the border city waiting to file asylum claims. and to does seem ill equipped to deal with such a huge influx of people the city sports stadium has been turned into
7:40 pm
a temporary shelter but it's a stark contrast to the warm welcome they got as they traveled through southern mexico now the hiya under curfew as thora has tried to reduce tensions between the local population and the new arrivals but i've got to imagine we're feeling from the violence in our country how could we come here to cause violence there isn't it someone you know they have the right to protest because they don't like it that we're here but in spite of everything the mexicans are good people they are the same as us but we're only passing through we won't stay. the question now is just how long that stay will end up being. and staying on the theme of my visit to brussels on monday where he met with belgian prime minister sharon michelle the document called the global compact for safe orderly and regular migration is due to be signed next month and morocco however several countries
7:41 pm
including austria poland and hungary have already dropped out of the accord. and our chief political editor mikaela kushner met with manifest vapor chairman of the conservative group in the european parliament who is vying for a top job in the upcoming european elections and she asked him how he would bring europeans together on the migration issue. well on the united nations level we have the principles that nation states decides the european union as a bloc is not their present but it would be a good good symbol a good signal for the future if we could have proper on so as europeans together united and that's by is not a good development boards but we saw in the last weeks and months on this migration back to the european level. i think it's better to compromise it's better to seek not to the outside world especially to our fricken friends that we are ready for compromise then to be
