1:01 pm
a new front here what you're seeing right now is a scientific breakthrough we'll tell you how the crew of this except merciful next time is making history. and a happy birthday world wide web on march twelfth nine hundred eighty nine a man named tim came up with a user friendly way to connect computers around the world fast forward thirty years and we have online dating fake news and kept video what could possibly come next. i'm serious almost gone it is good to have you with us britain's attorney general has said the latest changes to the birds a deal that the prime minister secured do not eliminate the risk that the u.k. will stay tied to e.u. rules indefinitely his opinion comes a day after theresa may and the e.u. agreed that these so-called backstop which she's northern ireland can. uing to
1:02 pm
follow e.u. rules in order to keep the border with the irish republic open would only apply temporarily after bragg said now in a letter released shortly before lawmakers are set to vote for the revised deal the attorney general geoffrey cox says the changes don't give the u.k. ok a quote internationally lawful means of getting out of the arrangement without the approval. all right let's bring in our correspondents following the story for us we have very good math in london and max huffman in this stuff very good to see you both both the berkut let's start with you and as we heard the attorney general says that he still has his concerns what more can you tell us about this letter. well i think the conclusion which you have just read to me is really the crucial bit of his advice and that's going to make it very very difficult for treason may to get the deal through the house of commons tensions you know all running high you can see a lot of protesters behind me people are saying we want breaks it we want it now this
1:03 pm
is what we voted for and i think it's getting ever more likely that there will be you know there will be no deal bret's it because to reason they will not get this deal through from the advice of the attorney general because really m.p.'s were hoping that she could that the u.k. would have some sort of assurance that it could just exit the so-called backstop agreement on northern ireland the future of northern ireland but it could only do it with the agreement of the u. and that's going to be well that's really the crucial point in this conclusion from the attorney general all right so serious doubts concerns there in london max let's come to you in strasbourg what are evil leaders saying about the revised agreement . the actions of porn's from all across europe including from a meeting of the european affairs that is taking place in bucharest bolz. and this was as far as the european union could go in that course they had built
1:04 pm
a bridge for the u.k. but it's up to the u.k. to walk over the bridge and it's the sentiment that has been echoed as well here in strasburg where the european parliament parliament is having its session at the moment here it's plenty recession for example by the social democrats who have said we have gone as far as we could take it or leave it this is it this is the deal you can't play any more games there will be no more negotiating this is it. very good let's come back you know so if that's the case what happened the parliament does fail to pass the spreads until today. if parliament does fail to pass the deal that's going to be another series of votes that's the reason may has promised as going to be a vote on excluding a new deal brigs it's sort of crushing out of the e.u. without any agreement about future that's going to happen tomorrow as the timeline that she has suggested if then that does get voted by m.p.'s which we are expecting
1:05 pm
because a lot of m.p.'s really for them it's a horris an area that there are no provisions and the u.k. just does crash out at the end of march then there's another vote on a possible extension of the withdrawal period now the thinking here in london is that you really have to look at the margin for the votes in night if the reason may loses by a small margin she might then try and just go for a shorter extension and ask the m.p.'s again to vote on the deal so just a short extension but if she loses by a big margin then really all bets are off and the question is does she have to look for a longer expression and possibly there is talk of a general election it's going to be a really really crucial vote tonight and it's going to determine what's happening over the next weeks and months yeah the pressure really is on theresa may max coming back. you we heard her say that if parliament fails to back to back the plan as it now stands there might not be any breaks it at all as you said take it or
1:06 pm
leave it so from the u.s. perspective what happens if this vote fails. well you know it's not just about substance in this game it hasn't been for a long time because if you look at the substance things haven't really changed dramatically or some say in any way over the last few weeks it's also about form it's about and it appears that the prime minister of the u.k. to resubmit needs some drama to have a chance to get this through the house of commons and john clune is playing the game will play the game on monday evening warning basically the hard bags of tears to say ok you can continue gambling and not take this deal but the risk of course as we just heard burkett says is that you will have an extension and what happens during extension you don't really know even a second or a second referendum seems possible or even new elections of what happens then if there really will be a brags it is completely clear so we've heard voices here and i've also read those
1:07 pm
lines of the british press who say who advised the gregs to tears the hard drugs appears in the u.k. to take this deal and run because it might be the best thing they can get and that was the message from the e.u. commission president john crow york ok barbara taking all of that into account if we can come back to america in london for us taking all that into account you've been speaking to some lawmakers there is there any indication which way this vote could go. i speaking to one of the leading northern irish m.p.'s this morning the samuelson from the d u p u off the coalition father effectively series m a o they're helping her in her government and he was very very critical of the so-called toxic deal that syriza may has managed to get from the european union and that was before the attorney general's advice so he read it. it sounds like to do you feel you was going to support this deal and many conservative lawmakers will
1:08 pm
be watching the from those a knowledge and will be watching what they are saying so why this is going to be very very difficult is it really doesn't look like she's going to get it through tonight that vote scheduled for later today our correspondents. in london and max hoffman in strasbourg thank you both very much. now to some other stories making news around the world u.s. backed syrian forces say they have killed at least thirty eight hottest in heavy fighting in eastern syria the syrian democratic forces have been closing in on the town of by groups for several weeks now it is the last pocket of territory held by the so-called islamic state in syria. australia has joined a growing list of countries and their alliance restricting operation of boeing's new seven thirty seven max airliner australia's aviation authority said it was a temporary measure a seven thirty seven max crashed in ethiopia on sunday the second crash of the model in five months. the u.s.

1:10 pm
a broader debate about asylum in germany especially for those who are charged with violent crimes. when susanna disappeared in may last year two weeks went by before any trace of her could be found then police discovered the body of a fourteen year old next to a railroad track and a home covered with dirt and branches ali beat a young iraqi living in a refugee shelter in response was the main suspect the investigating team then got a tip from within the migrant community where he was living. then clinton said about six thirty pm on sunday june third a thirteen year old refugee appeared in the spotless first precinct and said that susana had been raped and murdered so i think about it. and he named this twenty year old iraqi as a possible suspect. its workers in cape. and his family fled overnight to northern iraq but he was arrested there and handed over to german
1:11 pm
authorities he confessed to killing susanna but denies having returned. right when the populists use the case to criticize the government's refugee policy in germany emotions ran high in an unusual step chancellor merkel commented on the sidelines of the g. seven summit in canada. in front of the unimaginable suffering that the family and also the victim have endured touches everyone including me. i can only say now that it is good that the suspected perpetrator has been caught the. first. is believed to have killed susanna in order to cover up the rape he has also been accused of raping an eleven year old girl that case is being handled separately. turning now to algeria where demonstrators are back on the streets of the capital a day after president abdullah says with a flick of pledged not to seek another term in office but he also announced
1:12 pm
a delay in the presidential election that was due to take place on april eighteenth so stay. protesting again with the flick a did not name a new day he was responding to weeks of protests but many voters are not convinced that the eighty two year old leader will follow through on his promise not to run again. let's go to the capital jurors journalist sophia nasr is standing by for us sophia people as we said protesting and now about the elections being postponed could this influence beautifully because this isn't again. is this is sort of this remains highly on keno because it is decisions just taken yesterday but what we see in the streets in algeria across the country today is high pressure. as you mentioned. we have massive protests off children's. turns of thousands on marching in downtown but also in other cities across the country. strikes that was called for a couple of days ago was also also the continued today in several cities again the
1:13 pm
mob constantine and we had all. seen trends in the streets the name friday and it's likely that the last words by it and it's not spoken yet so what does postponing the election actually not mean what could we when could we see a possible vote in algeria. this all seems completely unclear because there was a way of staying within the media framework of the constitution but with the nonsense of yesterday this is the a breach of the current constitution in place so high junkier what will happen and also in case of the book the future plan will react young going on record what the result will be one of it well you'll find was that also yesterday because he's always be on. guard for the vice minister of defense there is more information out
1:14 pm
about what they discussed what can be discussed the state media published pictures and yawned she is a bit worrying when it comes to interventions of yarn that if you teach young you played a role when it came to the announcements that were made yesterday. the students who are protesting now they want to see algeria political future handed to the younger generation in the coming years but will that really happen there's also highly unlikely that either opposition parties will be strong enough to counter any tents also for the children really in touch and then within another vote does not a this vote will happen soon or in the year since. the real opposition parties that we have in the country are discredited or for the traits it's something the is also part of this kind of stuff it's just that. in recent years so the possible and also
1:15 pm
the possible outcome of all of this is simply that not the clan of syrian regime will take over. a difference in question if the new stuff screwed up my piece of the structure that is more inclusive than the current one journalist sophia for speaking to us from algeria thank you very much. now in a world first a british led scientific mission has broadcast live television quality video and sound using wireless technology from deep below the surface of the indian ocean the next on missions first transmission came from sixty meters under the sea off the seychelles and the off on a toll it's ultimately goal is to gather data on the indian ocean to help improve conservation and well the world's least explored area. out of. this was the moment the next one deep sea research mission made broadcast history a scientific breakthrough sixty meters below the surface of the indian ocean the

1:22 pm
a scientist named tim berners lee put the idea for the world wide web on paper and suggested to his boss that they set it up his boss agreed and the rest is history but his idea has taken off in directions he could never have imagined. the ability of just about anyone to contact everyone anywhere in the world is down to this man tim berners lee as a young english physicist berners lee came up with a program language that enabled computers connected to the internet to exchange data. back then he was more concerned about linking academic computers around the world the science community and something else tim berners lee didn't get his language paid and did the world wide web was free of charge from the beginning on that might have had something to do with how the internet swept and changed the world in such a short time. what we're getting to this point in just a few months when for the first time more than half the world will built will be online we're calling it a fifty fifty moment and that's
1:23 pm
a moment where i think we've got to do two things firstly we've got to say what about the next fifty percent and there's a lot of challenge in how we're going to get everybody connected or even the most the majority of the world connected but it's also of course a lot to do to make the web better and whether that's dealing with privacy concerns with content online with governments censoring or cutting access to the web in different parts of the world there's lots to do to make sure that we're getting the web we want not a web that actually hurts humanity because that's the downside enormously powerful tech conglomerates like facebook and google who collect collate and monetize personal data governments that spy on their citizens they make berners lee livid so nowadays he's working to help internet users regain control and ownership of their personal data. so you business reporter rob watts has more on this story for us
1:24 pm
hi rob thank you for joining us it's hard to believe so thirty years ago the entire world wide web was created yes that's right and what is important to differentiate between is the internet and the worldwide web so the internet is something that's been around since. the one nine hundred sixty s. in one form or another and what we're talking about today is the w.w.w. docs that we know the world wide web it's what we access when we go onto a web browser such as firefox or safari or internet explorer and that was proposed thirty years ago by a man called tim berners lee we can actually see him on this picture here heard from the third from the left celebrating at cern where he was working at the time thirty years ago and he proposed what at the time he called an information management system and it was a way in which all the different computers at could talk to each other and share information that until that point had been incompatible with each other so it's a pretty incredible accomplishment but it sounds like tim berners lee is actually not that happy with what the world wide web has become mean he invented it to be
1:25 pm
a great leveller that everyone could access for free that everyone could pool all of their information and then all together we could solve the world's problems but he has in the past few days i'm speaking about this and indeed today saying that he has concerns about the direction in which the worldwide web has gone since he invented it there are three things in particular that points out that upset him state act is using his tool to spread misinformation talks about advertising models that encourage click bait. information that's not really of any great informative value he also doesn't like the way that the internet has encouraged outraged and polarizing debate it certainly has you know the world wide web was always free it still is technically but we do kind of pay a price to pay for what we do online i mean sometimes we literally pay a price you know to access websites which tim berners lee might say is
1:26 pm
a against his original principle but also the big thing that we all pay with is data and it's something that tim berners lee is trying to change in fact he's part of a group that's trying to use. what pods ways in which that people can keep all of their data in one place and then control how the likes of facebook google amazon access that data what data they can access he's also pushing for something that he cause the contract for the web which is an international set of laws signed up to by the nations of the world that can govern how we all use the internet and how our information is used maybe a way to change the next thirty years of the world wide web all right rob thank you so much our business reporter with the story thank you. and our minder now is our top story at this hour britain's attorney general has raised doubts over legal changes to the bread feel secured by prime minister three that may the chief legal
