9:06 am
major events and it ties we have to remember that since two thousand sixteen there's also been a major bike and violence in kashmir and in recent months the indian security establishment has been speaking about how they managed to contain the insurgency but this attack really is a reminder that conflict is far from over and i think what's going to happen is this attack does put the government on the bits of the thailand because you know taking any strong military action many here say for the alienated people in kashmir but not taking any action at all it could also host modi as you know to seek reelection in a few months from now sonia thank you very much for bringing us up to date the w.c. on your phone the car there in delhi. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world today twenty people are feared dead after a boat capsized in bad weather in northern samea authorities say the vessel was carrying more than forty people when a storm struck lake the boat had left the town of lingo and was heading toward some

9:08 am
a reporter on the red carpet tells us whether so long my son is likely to get a golden bear. u.s. president dull troll is threatening to declare a state of national emergency to get enough money to build a wall along the mexican border patrol is angry that congress has only approved a quarter of the funds he wants for the one point four billion rather than the five point seven billion he had demanded declaring a state of emergency would give him direct access to funds the bill approved by both parties in congress avoids another government shutdown senators in the chamber wishing to spite u.s. lawmakers efforts to come to a compromise trump's decision sets the scene for a constitutional conflict the border security bill had support from both sides of the aisle and easily passed its first hurdle a vote in the senate but not before senate majority leader mitch mcconnell dropped a bombshell he said the president would be bypassing congress to fund his controversial us mexico border wall leader mcconnell i've just had up kurdish make
9:09 am
the president trump and he would say all my colleagues are going to kate is prepared to sign a bill he will also be issuing the national emergency declaration at the same time . and i've indicated to him that i'm going to prepare to support a national emergency declaration conference democrats members of the senate were quick to condemn any possible use of executive powers to build a wall if president trump decides to go forward with a disaster declaration they'll be making a tremendous mistake declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act a gross abuse of the power of the presidency and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that president trump broke his core promise to have mexico pay for the wall the border security bill then went to the
9:10 am
house of representatives where it also easily passed the bill will now go to the white house for president trump to sign it off on friday. house speaker nancy pelosi warned that any attempt by trump to sidestep congress could have major implications for the future everyone a democratic president can do that democratic committee president can declare emergencies as well so the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay. while lawmakers showed a willingness to cooperate on keeping the government running they remain deeply divided on the border wall and any executive order to fund it is almost certain to land trump in a lengthy court battle with lawmakers of a constitutional power as. well for more of the latest developments in washington we have one call you're with us here from bard college in berlin good morning or when so another government shutdown has been averted it looks like president trump
9:11 am
is going nuclear as it were by declaring a national emergency in order to get the funding to build his wall will he get away with it well you can't fault him for not trying he really wants to make an end run around the constitutional power of the congress to control the purse strings and this is what it's all about he is not getting the money directly through legist the sort of legislation he wants and by trying to put this up with the sort of crisis like the swine flu or. the nine eleven attacks he is hoping to not have to go through his cumbersome and cumbersome negotiations with another equal branch of government he wants to be able to write his own checks this is the attempt. he still doesn't have the land to build such a wall so you know there are many things that go into building a physical barrier not least of which is having the land this is
9:12 am
a long term project and this will not be a long term executive order how do you read these maneuvers that we're witnessing in washington the signing of the border bill getting the budget passed there to avoid the government shutdown and then declaring a state of emergency a national emergency today that these maneuvers exposed weakness or do they show him to be. a clever tactician. it certainly shows we've seen the behavior before he does not apologize he never admits defeat and in the middle of a wholesale retreat he is declaring victory and organizing parades this is par for the course we've seen it before but yes he's been completely rolled. the republicans really got bloodied up with the last government shutdown anything but
9:13 am
that and now the amount of money the strings attached donald trump knows he lost that round by the clearing a national emergency the house speaker nancy pelosi says this is this is something we should we should look at very warily she says it could create a precedent to create problems threat to american democracy but what's interesting in one thousand nine hundred seventy six after the watergate affair the congress thought about this what happens if we get a scoundrel like a richard nixon or possibly something worse. this declaration of an executive order and the ability to say when the day the executive or this executive power is surrendered you know the congress said they have the power to say enough is enough
9:14 am
and what we'll see is immediately first thing palosi will bring a resolution it will pass in the house of representatives disapproving of this. eighteen days the senate then has to take a position very good chances that that gets a slim majority also disapproving so the law to end such a power grab will be on trump's desk he would probably veto it but we don't know that yet and then it's back. but then there's the next line of defense which are the courts and the courts have not been kind to such initiatives on the part of the trumpet ministration a lot to keep track of there in washington at the moment or when thank you very much for filling us in our one caller from bard college here in berlin nice to be here. china's president xi jinping is scheduled to meet with u.s. trade negotiators who are seeking an accord with beijing to end a us china tariff to speed this is the second day of talks in the chinese capital
9:15 am
reports suggest little progress has been made on u.s. demands that china crack down on force technology transfers and reduce subsidies for domestic companies xi jinping presence is seen as a sign that china is trying its best to accommodate u.s. delegation she'll have more on this business coming up after the riots. so far. africa's most populous country is going to the polls on saturday and it looks like the presidential election in nigeria will be a tight race between two candidates the incumbent president mohamed two bihari former army general who was voted in four years ago on an anti corruption ticket his main contender is atiku abubakar he was a businessman who has also served as vice president and stands for more moderate and liberal policies both men are from an aging political elite but after nigeria
9:16 am
reduce the minimum age for presidential candidates some youngsters have also thrown their hat into the ring one of them is the thirty five year old. who in a country where the under twenty five's make up the majority of the population his chances may be better than some have predicted. krishna went to meet. them on the election campaign trail in abidjan nigeria's capital she who is visiting a private school he's the youngest ever nigerian presidential candidate and education is his central theme. until we stop to fix education it will be difficult to fix any other sectors in the nation who lived in the u.s. where he worked as a mathematic. lecturer he's calling for thirty five percent of the country's budget to go to war it's education. becomes a whole the school's principal is surprised to see a politician who understands education while the school receives no state support
9:17 am
and is financed by fees affordable only to those earning good money. to government i don't think they have interests in developing education because of the quality of the dance we have. many of them done less inhibited location. and them they don't see education as something that would bring money to them so this was done with funding education that the political failures over the past few decades can be seen three hours drive from object a state funded school in ca to northern nigeria fairly worth feel the name pots of that have collapsed the classrooms have neither desks nor chasse. opportunities fourteen years old himself as students but currently responsible for his whole class. here's how i take care of them
9:18 am
because i am older and i want to help my brothers and sisters like this the teachers aren't here again that's why i'm doing it since until. here there are no books joggers chalk up to it's only learning eight zero with. this nine o'clock in the morning and only now the first teacher has shown up and total the school has eight hundred students and only four teachers. about how much to house on sons go to school here affect their father reduced day in the the teachers are poorly paid he says no one would want to teach at such a school. my children should become doctors or soldiers they should have a worthwhile drop and a good future that's my dream of these circumstances nothing will come of it.
9:19 am
if he had enough money of the motorbike taxi driver says he would have long ago sent his children to private school the ruling party of president who has been in power for four years and the federal state of the commissioner of education has shifted the blame for the educational situation onto previous governments seventy percent of teachers where i'm qualified more than twenty thousand teachers have been let go because they couldn't read or write. government on. the. budget requests for it. the key is. to take the. ten years. this state spends a third of its budget on education but at the federal level education spending makes up only seven percent of the budget the issue plays hardly any role and president who hires election campaign. wants to change that but he
9:20 am
and his small party are struggling to be taken seriously and in spite of a minimal campaign budget he wants to lay down a marker. it's the hope the passion the vision the puppies that we as young people bring to the table started to change this narrative not good enough that we're not ready when are qualified to be think it's very evident that we have a whole lot more to offer to our generation under generations coming after us and the people who've been there he says it's a simple equation if nigeria with its booming population no longer invests in education the next crisis will not be far away there. he says it's something every politician should understand do you think it would be the way for you to be a green krishna reporting there now british prime minister theresa may has suffered
9:21 am
another defeat in parliament over her brags that strategy ball makers voted against a government motion asking them to reaffirm support for her plan to seek changes to her break that deal hard line break to tears in teresa mayes own party opted to abstain from the party saying the prime minister is moving in the wrong direction but that does not force the government to change tack but it is likely to undermine the confidence of the leaders that may can when parliament support for any revised agree. so what's next for theresa may we put that question to our correspondent in london. well it's seems like the drama is not ending to reason may has said that in two weeks' time she will come back and she will yet again present a house of commons with her while she says is solution she wants to go back to russell's and she wants to have another results you want to have something that's legally binding that is a commitment by e.u.
9:22 am
leaders to change somehow the position of northern ireland yet you really this we know are really on willing to do that so her critics here in the labor party mostly accuse her of really running down the clock of trying to achieve something that is already clear she called on the chief and then she really runs down time so that at the very end of this process at the very end of march when he the u.k. has to leave the european union that there is no choice but for those m.p.'s in the house of parliament here to back somehow whatever deal to reason may will have hammered out that so that she is just buying time and this is the fear here in london also by business who say we need clarity we call and live anymore with this on saturday it's affecting. is already there is a lot of criticism here in london in the u.k. as far as tourism a strategy is also of course there is a concern in the e.u. so i said if they somehow give into had to. change the backstop go

behind. in so long my son we see a country that is changing so rapidly its people are struggling to keep up director wings said that china today is so different from the time he was trying to depict that it was even difficult to find the props he needed for his sets yet without this change the film would likely never have been made until recently any criticism of china's one child policy would probably not have gotten by the censors some have speculated that government censorship was behind the surprise withdrawal of two other chinese films invited to premiere at the bell another wayne said he could not speculate on whether they were pulled for political reasons but he said their absence is a great disappointment. on the national you won the national issues and i was on the plane when the news came out and i only heard about it when i got off the plane i was quite shocked and i really felt for them as well because it's really quite
