a nail biting world of chess championship has finally produced a winner magnus carlsen has defended his crown by beating fabiano cover off in a series of quickfire time. it's good to have you with us tonight ratcheting up the tension russia's president vladimir putin is accusing ukraine of orchestrating sunday's naval standoff now russia seized three ukrainian boats and at least twelve ukrainian sailors they've been detained pending trial u.s. president says he is deeply concerned about what happened ukraine's president has declared martial law in the border regions and he is mourning that russia is preparing for war again. this is what life has become for many living
around. it's the closest ukrainian city to. both of which are now controlled by russian backed separatists. clash with russia ukraine has begun to impose martial law. so you are the country's president petro poroshenko has warned there could be a russian invasion will sit on. these tanks have not yet been removed from their will there i don't want anybody to think that those are toys the country is under threat of a food scale war with russia. and the deceased for the russia and ukraine have blamed each other for sunday standoff in the catch straits which links the black sea and the sea of us all of russian naval officers fired on and seized three ukrainian vessels capturing the crew twelve ukrainians have now been charged with
unlawfully entering russia thanks face up to six years in jail but russian president vladimir putin blames the ukrainian president for the standoff claiming it's a move to boost his ratings. it was a small it's clearly a product of. a provocation or united i.d.'s both the shitlist and i think it was the president himself should head of the presidential election shed yule to be hideous in ukraine just. what is it if. international pressure against russia is building with talk of further sanctions u.s. president donald trump has threatened to cancel a meeting shared jeweled with president putin at this week's g. twenty summit. meanwhile ukrainians are preparing for a new phase of war with the conflict showing no signs of stopping. by correspondent david stern he is in the ukrainian capital kiev good evening to you david we have these ukrainian border regions about ten of them that are under martial law now and
there are reports of increased russian military activity at the border or what are you hearing. well yes it should be said it's martial law or maybe a better word for it would be war footing it's preparation for what the president has said could be a full scale war with russia as we heard in the report we are hearing of course that there is a buildup along borders this is what the president has said and the russians the interfax news agency said that there's a. s. four hundred missile system that has been added to those that are already there three that are already on the crimean peninsula so obviously the tensions are rising the. the fear obviously and here in ukraine is that this could lead to something much larger but at the moment of course nothing like that is happening and what more do we know about lose ukrainian sailors who are being held and president putin's accusation that the ukrainian boats were also carrying ukrainian
spawn's. well yes. the krooman have been all sentenced to two months of pretrial detention but of course the larger picture of that is that this is really a pawns they're really pawns between the two governments mr putin's accusations obviously have a great race a great deal of attention but it should be said that the tensions between ukraine and russia have been rising for a great a long time now since two thousand and fourteen ever since russia annexed the crimean peninsula and in the sea of azoff so actually it shouldn't be of any surprise that there are intelligence agents on either side it should be said in the in the hours of c. or wherever else they might be coming into contact and what about. to solve this crisis diplomatically. well those are going nowhere at the
moment we heard about president trump who sent sort of mixed messages but at the moment is discussing possibly not meeting with mr putin on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit otherwise the the ukrainians have been good have received a great deal of support from their western partners there's talks of increased sanctions there's also talks about there's been a demand from the you to allow free access to the azoff sea which is actually what the ukrainians and the russians have had in place since two thousand and three but at the same time nothing between russia and ukraine a phone call from mr partial to mr putin was recently rebuffed. or correspondent david stern on the story forced into kiev tonight david thank you does islam belong in german society does it have a future here all those questions were controversial when germany held its first islamic conference back in two thousand and six today as the fourth islam
conference begins will become traverse he remains the country's interior minister horst is a whole for his hosting the conference in the past there's been criticism that the conference has promoted only conservative forms of islam conservative forms that have little interest in integration this year the organizers say that they've also invited liberal theologians and social scientists. it's thought that there are almost five million muslims living here in germany in our next report we hear from one young woman who is trying to liberalize are fake. understanding how muslims are perceived in germany is a mission for. an author and the daughter of mara can immigrants she was born and raised in germany she comes from a conservative religious home sundays were devoted to learning verses from the koran by heart but at the same time she managed to follow her own interests.
when i would have it was a huge deal for my mother that i should be independent there was nothing off limits no sense that you can't do this or that just because you're a girl. with few restrictions on what she could do and must have had an easier upbringing than many young muslims in germany now thirty seven she writes books portraying the complex city of muslim life and just keen to dispel stereotypes she says all too often women are depicted as victims and men are unable to show any sign of thing scientists or insecurity. and must i believe both muslims and non muslims need to abandon such oversimplified views. is much more. on the one hand some muslims have a romanticized image of other muslims and ignore anything problematic within their own community or they sent them selves against mainstream non muslim society on the
other hand you have those who are panicking the islam has almost completely taken over is in quotes. for many muslims their big taboo surrounding religion family and sex want it. but instead of breaking down these barriers and muslims says some muslim groups reinforce them she's critical of the german islam conference for including in her view to many conservative groups. to my school although we have this most muslim groups don't believe in equality they are highly patriarchal some are actually reaction or anything and that's certainly not interested in islam becoming more liberal or in advancing gender equality justice lest i go to dinner for i won't work and must rest opinion that's exactly what german islam requires emancipated muslims who are not held back by tradition or the dictates of religion living freely and enjoying equal rights. muskrat chats with
young women epperly in cafe they too want to see an open mind it islam. well i'm joined now by our chief political correspondent melinda crane she is here in berlin this evening good evening to you melinda the german is long conference it began with the country's interior minister horse over saying that muslims belong to germany now he is known as being a very conservative politician did that statement surprise you. absolutely it did and it surprised many others as well this is the same man who shortly after taking office as interior minister directly contradicted the chancellor she had said islam does belong to germany and he said no it does not and he went on in the months after that to essentially instrumental ised prejudices both against immigrants and against muslims in the hope of trying to win voters away from a party on the far right the alternative for germany the party that has been on the
rise his own party is one of the most conservative in the political spectrum and he's anxious to keep it that way and not allow this other party to grow up further to the right but he did to some degree change his tune today he talked about the fact that muslims do belong to germany that they have rights and obligations just like any other german citizen so to some degree at least it looks like a slightly more integrative approach you know that that's one way to describe it he and other members of of today's conference had another messages will take a listen. namely the first step to work better understanding is to replace outside influence or sloan's muslim in germany's muslims needs to take control of the organization and financing of their communities but also the trainings of your mom's needs to
reflect their needs. of course the long as it does as long as they're not independent of foreign countries i don't think we can talk about islam being at home in germany as long as it simply controlled from outside i mean take the largest muslim association here i have a problem with the fact that the turkish president decides who runs it was it's not that if you cannot give me the interesting points mr is over and others they want to see a german if you will but how is that possible when a lot of islamic organizations in this country are being financed from abroad. well i think we have to be a bit more nuanced in looking at this by no means is it the case that all muslims in germany are somehow being controlled by form and foreign governments or foreign agents there are independent islamic forces in this country we heard the
young woman there in the report but there are also independent islamic organizations and misters a hope for the host of the conference this year went out of his way to invite some of those voices to join in the debate and that is very very important because ultimately i think this can't be about germany banning organizations that are seen as being foreign controlled certainly we don't want to see the government working together with organizations where we know that the turkish government for example is using them as an arm of propaganda but i think what's very important here and certainly this is what members of the islamic community are saying is that that community itself needs to debate all of the different myriad forms of this religion and try to open up discussion about what those are in order to give muslims in germany more choice and that is absolutely consistent with german constitutional values and german law or gee political correspondent linda greene on
the story we're still going to you're in berlin with the thank you. well here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world democrat nancy pelosi has been nominated for her old job as speaker of the u.s. house of representatives despite calls for younger leadership the seventy eight year old lost the post the republicans took control of the house back in two thousand and eleven the new democratic majority will take their seats in january indonesian investigators say the lion air aircraft that crashed last month had suffered technical problems a day before the accident and should have been grounded one hundred eighty nine people everyone on board the sub and thirty seven boeing seven thirty seven were killed when it crashed into the sea shortly after taking off from jakarta the chinese scientist who claims to have created the world's first genetically added that babies says a second such pregnancy may be on the way he john revealed the

it's the same routine every day. the same medicine the same dose every morning. i forty boys and girls live at the hope is there between four and seventeen. and to mean a sick little pluses and minuses that's what they call hiv positive and negative children here. with. a clue why did when we opened this home eleven years ago hiv positive children lived separately from the divine we had wiped the no carpets we clean the dishes with a lot of disinfectant ordered never the cool that you have listed in the room
that's what it was difficult to create a tolerant environment for them but it took years for all the stuff to accept and respect my children. you have the quietly. today with little blasts and little minuses play together and they are treated the same. they are all growing up without parents in this children's home in the russian city of chile audience. as the children have h. of infected parents many of their parents suffer from alcoholism to drug addictions and have lost custody of their children. but within the walls of this home with the children are cared for and have. dark chocolate you can tell if they learn to live with their edge of your infection confidently. and handle it better than some adults. us. once we sent the children to

fabiano carolina were the two best chess players in the world it's possible defending champion carlsen had decided to pick his fortunes on the quick fire tiebreakers after all that's how he won the title two years ago for his latest triumph the norwegian will take home five hundred fifty thousand euros and it was also a good day at the office for the loser fabiano care a lot of will make only one hundred thousand euros less but it's magnus carlsen who hoists the trophy for the fourth time. all right over to king maker now christophe and the u.s. federal reserve sounding the alarm over growing hazards to the financial system ephedra reserve has issued a stark warning about the outlook for the u.s. financial system and says historically high corporate debts and trade tensions
could cause asset prices to plummet in his first report on the stability of the us and of system the fed acknowledges that regulation brought in after the two thousand and eight financial crisis as made the banking system more resilient but it says increasingly aggressive risk taking could lead to more vulnerabilities more on this let's bring in our financial correspondent and scored in new york fed chair jerome politest finished speaking at the new york economic club tell us more of what they have to say. well overall he is quite upbeat when you look at the current term economic situation some in the united states there are no signs of recession on the horizon yet and at the same time also inflation does not seem to be too high at all and that all sounds of pretty well but maybe just one comment to the debt situation i'm in the united states we see record levels of debt and that
is true for consumers that it's true for corporations and certainly that is also true for the government so the fed quite concerned about their financial stability and yet the u.s. economy seems to be in good shape what does this assessment mean for the federal reserve's intention to further raise interest rates. it still seems pretty likely that we see the fourth interest rate increase and at the last meeting in december it would be the ninth of interest rate increase since december of twenty fifteen but then and that's the important thing a fed chairman. mentioned that looking at next year the course is not set but that they have been in the federal reserve will watch closely at the data meaning how the financial markets are doing how the economy is doing so that sounds a bit less aggressive than what we've heard recently from the federal reserve and yet before jerome paul was able to give
a speech and before the fed issued its report president trump yet again attacked the fed and its policy why does he keep doing that. well again and again the president is saying that the policy of the federal reserve is the biggest threat to the economy not cherubs not china but the federal reserve well it is true to a certain degree that if you see higher interest rates especially was those high debt levels that we are having if you have higher rates it will become more expensive for to pay for this debt that could be. could not stop but slow down the u.s. economy is what the president is not entirely wrong on that but the big question is why the federal reserve is increasing interest rates and one of the main reasons are the text cuts that we've seen here in the united states that does lead to or certain overheating of the u.s. economy that that's you need to inflation tendencies and that's the reason why the
federal reserve has no other choice but to keep. a route through keep increasing rates but overall yes higher interest rates and could be a drag for u.s. growth and so now that your own poll sounded a little less aggressive we saw quite a reaction here on wall street deborah chips are up by more than four hundred points against court in new york thank you. the british government says that leaving the european union with no deal would cause the economy to shrink by more than nine percent over a fifteen year period the report which considered a range of post-tax of models suggests that even with prime minister to resign may's deal britain will end up poorer the block the now says comes a fortnight before british m.p.'s vote on miss may's divorce deal with the e.u. there's no question that bracks it will hit britain's economy that's the result of an analysis commissioned by the british government even so prime minister theresa may insists she's done all she can that we see behind the analysis that we have
published today and indeed the chancellor recognise this morning is that our deal. the best deal of a double the job or economy which allows us to all of the referendum i now realize the opportunity is all right see i this is this on the now this does not show that will be poorer in the future the way off today doesn't i. i chose to be better off with this deal her words weren't enough to calm rebellion within her own party because the takeaway from the analysis is that with the divorce deal as it stands g.d.p. will shrink by a total of over three percent over the next fifteen years and still better than no deal at all though for that scenario the study projects a fall of more than nine percent the bank of england has also issued a somber warning it says that if the nation leaves the e.u. without a deal and a hard break said the pound could plummet twenty five percent sending business they
are into a tailspin by the end of twenty twenty three g.d.p. is more than ten percent lower in the disorderly scenario compared to that may twenty sixteen trend the country's parliament is due to vote on may's agreement on december eleventh. you're watching news coming to you live from berlin don't forget you can get all the latest news and information around the clock on our website. and after a short break brant will be back to take you so stick around. entered
