8:02 pm
a constitutional crisis in britain here is what john bercow the house of commons speaker here's what he said earlier today. what the government cannot legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same proposition all substantially the same proposition as that of last week which was rejected by one hundred forty nine. this ruling should not be regarded as my last word on the subject bt simply meant to indicate that test which the government must meet. in order for me to rule that's safe. it can legitimately be held in this poem entry session. are listed or correspondent is on the story for us tonight in london good evening to you
8:03 pm
barbara so we've got the house of commons speaker saying there will not be a repeat of last week does that mean the government has no way of presenting to rescind may's deal to parliament for a vote for a vote again. basically not that's what john gorka has said because he has looked to for a while and what's the reason why is doing and they have out warning voices last week where some bottom in terence would throw this idea up and say genuinely the fall is supposed to know that you can just resubmit the same bill again and again and again then that and you voted on until you like the result that is relevant to ok so that's what john murtha said but of course brant they also know if there isn't now i guess there is a difference isn't she and so some government lawyer is a fraud tough to the point that all the men's might actually be nice and do it down
8:04 pm
here that part of mentoring session could be ended early at and that would stop of course the house of commons dead in its trade nothing strikes nothing could be done in that interim period until normal business starts up again whether that is of any great help i don't know and also there might be questions off political legitimacy there and what about the delay to break that we know west week parliament voted to ask the european union for a three month delay to the start of brakes it weaves we still don't have an answer back yet from the e.u. but that that is still up in the air isn't it. that comment didn't really suspect. fine how long the delays supposed to be about palm and did say that we do not want to crash out on the twenty ninth of march we always a person have to remind ourselves this is just eleven days from the danger of your six pricing and somewhere to reason may had announced it earlier that if she
8:05 pm
couldn't get the deal though just through the parliament she would go to brussels and ask for the nine months extension off the brakes it period of articles off the article fifty times and but it might also be only three months what she called earlier it short technical extension nobody knows that it was a junior government ministers the these junior bricks administer in fact who had already has said yes she would go to brussels on thursday and ask for an extension again he did say for how long and that might also be up to negotiation was the you christine you said it really doesn't want to be pushed around by britain anymore and might sort of make up its own mind on this point you're bored with that the u.k. junior breaks minister has just been quoted as saying if the u.k. does not get an extension to the start of direction from the european union that
8:06 pm
the u.k. will crash out of the european union on march twenty ninth bit probably that looks probably as likely as it ever happens tonight when you were greek. of course it is because that is still the default option because if to resume a draft get an extension on tuesday night and then she would have to come back to london rather speedily and at the beginning of next week have parliamentary announce the bracks of law that was passed a long time ago at the beginning of the bricks a process in order for that not to happen so yes it's still the default option somehow if things completely stop functioning here in palm and end at downing street entries amazes seat of government then it could still happen however parliament had said we don't want this interest may had promised she would let it happen so if the e.u. agrees then we will have an extension if the e.u.
8:07 pm
is really angry and says galloway brits we are fed up with all this then indeed we'll have a hard for exit britain would trash out all right our correspondent barbara starr force tonight in london barbara thank you. it's like police in the netherlands have a rest of the man in connection with the killing of three people in the city of after a seven hour manhunt authorities have now scaled back the terrorism threat level since arresting him he was earlier named as turkish born good tongue this is reported to be known to police prosecutors now believe the suspect may have been motivated by a family dispute five others were wounded in the shooting on the tram monday morning the prime minister of the netherlands and says that some of those injured are still in critical condition tonight. or correspondent rebecca rivers is now in . she joins us with the latest good evening to you police say they've ever hinted the suspect what do we know about him and do we know anything about his motive for
8:08 pm
beck. that's right friends as you mentioned they have apprehended thirty seven year old turkish born thomas they apprehended him after a seven hour manhunt through the c.c. . so far motive is still unknown and as you mentioned earlier the possibility of it being a family dispute is definitely one of the possibilities but police also not ruling out tara at this stage it's still too early to say what do we know about the victims the people who were shot inside the trailer. well little has been released about the victims either the ones that were killed all the injured. it is believed that one of the victims may have been known to the attack which leads police to believe that it could be something of a domestic night but still very little is known about the individuals themselves
8:09 pm
and you say rebecca we don't know but the words are still not saying whether or not this was an act of terrorism or whether or not this was domestic violence that spilled over into. the public talk us through what we do know but talk us through the sequence of events of what happened today. well brant at about ten forty five this morning local time police were called to an assault on this track which you can almost still just see behind me police have begun boarding up around the investigation size they arrived here to report the shooting eyewitnesses say a man pulled out a gun and was indiscriminately shooting inside the tram the man then fled the scene which led police to put the city into lockdown they asked people not to leave their houses and because they were worried about a terror threat or some other they were it was part of a bigger coordinated event the national counter terror organization actually lifted
8:10 pm
the terror threat to the highest level the level of five just for the state of trashed. of course and all of the seven hour manhunt ok yes that was that was before the seven hour manhunt that's correct or correspond to rivers on the story for us tonight in front of the tram where the attack occurred today in new trashed rebecca thank you. new zealand's prime minister says the government will announce new gun control laws within ten days sunday's attacks on two mosques in christ church have also prompted a review of what authorities knew and did not know ahead of the attack which claimed fifty lives and australian far right extremists has been charged with the murders. a shake in christ church did.

8:14 pm
africa is rising after cyclonic tore into the region on thursday more than two hundred people are now confirmed dead but mozambique's government is now warning the death toll could rise to more than a thousand in mozambique alone aid agencies are only just now grasping the full extent of the damage such as in the port city of barrow where the red cross says ninety percent of the buildings have been destroyed. they were a city almost completely flattened by the cyclon some pipe hundred thousand people call the port city home and with communications down and roads count the numbers of dead or injured here a still unclear as the cycling swept across mozambican into zimbabwe torrential rain flash floods and winds of up to one hundred seventy kilometers per hour left a trail of destruction areas have been cast off leaving people without bruce over
8:15 pm
their heads clean water and electricity. in neighboring malawi the rain spoiled the waters in a region already hit by flooding. and now people are even more reliant on aid. when no one but my house and many other homes have been destroyed and my land and my kitchen utensils and my food everything's gone and the floods and the like. we've nowhere to go we can relocate as we are covered by and surrounded by water. food is arriving elsewhere in the cycling he region high winds and dense clown's a still hampering rescue and aid efforts leaving communities to fend for themselves and prepare to bury their dead. by here it is on the ground for us in medical province in mozambique he said as this report. their effects of cyclon are most likely going to be felt for
8:16 pm
a long time i am here in the money cup province in more some beak. it breeds has been washed away most of the villagers now see they are going to feel this for a long time because surprise i've been cut off there won't be having any supplies from across the river and they are peeling for things like food even showed up because some of their warms have been washed away by these rains. there was our correspondent there reporting on that cycling that hit mozambique you're watching b.w. new still to come the night wolves are writing again marking five years since russia's annexation of crimea we'll tell you why for these bikers it's a day to celebrate. well the pressure is mounting on u.s. aircraft manufacturer boeing the black box data flight recorders in the recent ethiopian airlines seven thirty seven max crash point to similarities with the
8:17 pm
crash of another seven thirty seven max in indonesia in october of last year both crashes killed everyone on board tonight and there are also reports emerging which cast more doubts on the u.s. federal aviation authority they claim that the f.a.a. may have relied on boeing's engineers in what were supposed to be independent safety certifications for the seven thirty seven s. . and that is quite an accusation right there to talk more about that i'm joined by the w.'s christophe cobra he's been following the story for us christophe so they're talking about what gross violations of development certification wouldn't be the seattle times is reporting several issues of which experts are raising their eyebrows first boeing's safety analysis and this analysis of this new augmented flight control system had crucial flaws including understating its power and the statement that boeing's and their near submitted to the f.a.a.
8:18 pm
they called a complete failure of the system a potential complete failure they enabled us hazardous rather than catastrophic which would have meant more and longer testing now we have to remember the failure of this the malfunctioning of this system was responsible for the crash of the lion air flight in october and the most recent crash of ethiopian airlines flight three hundred two shows similarities secondly there are reports that the federal aviation administration has outsourced much of the certification process you mentioned it to boeing itself a myth. budget cuts and an increase in air travel so ultimately the manufacturer of the product was responsible for certifying its safety that as boeing was under pressure it's amazing to bring out the seventy seven x. on the market because it was facing stiff competition by air bus so what are boeing and the f.a.a. saying about this well both parties are saying the process followed a regular routine and both parties declined to comment further now we have report from the wall street journal though saying that one day after sunday's crash of
8:19 pm
flight three hundred two the u.s. just the justice department issued a subpoena to at least one person seeking documents and further material when it comes to the plane's certification now in a criminal investigation into this whole story would be certainly a new twist to it more pressure for boeing there that the transportation department is also probing the approval process of the seven three seven it seems like the more we find out here the worse it gets i mean it's going from a crash crisis to something much bigger it's not getting any better it's not getting any better boeing is facing potentially facing financial claims from the victims' families not only the ones from indonesia but also the ones from ethiopia is facing potential claims from airlines jets are grounded possibly further financial fallout if companies cancel their orders and the distrust in the company is growing and for a company who is relying on people's trust in their products day by day this is
8:20 pm
a very uncomfortable position to be so that again crystal cobra's always thank you . well everyone talks about gender equality here in europe but are we also walking the walk not when it comes to equal pay i mean women nowadays often pursue the same kind of careers and that goes from texas drivers to doctors to attorneys but while many women do the exact same jobs at the end of the month their pay checks differ vastly here in germany there is a gender pay gap of up to six percent some say there's plenty of room there for improvements. in berlin it pays to be a woman well today it does the city's transport operators have given female passengers twenty one percent off the aim is to raise awareness of the gender pay gap it's just finished a study on fare yes it's unfair that all but we have to point to is that it's much much less fair that women in germany earn on average twenty one percent less for
8:21 pm
the same work as their male counterparts yes i mentioned pretty but it's a little more complicated than most women often work in professions that are poorly paid as kindergarten teachers for example every second woman in germany only works part time because they're looking after children or other dependants that means they are in less under less likely to pursue a career. but even when women and men in germany work in the same jobs their salaries are often different the gender pay gap there is six per cent. that makes germany one of the lockers in the european union only in the czech republic and to stoney a is the salary gap between men and women greater. trade unions were actually in force in germany today to highlight their frustration over the continuing inequality. which today marks five years since
8:22 pm
russia annexed crimea from ukraine since then the potential in the black sea has been a focal point of tensions between. russia and the west separatists in crimea are celebrating what moscow has described as the day of crimea is reunification with russia the end exemption of crimea by russia was a violation of international law since two thousand and fourteen about thirteen thousand people have been killed in an ongoing conflict between ukraine and russian backed separatists in eastern ukraine. comes from crimea as the largest cities of. people still suffering after the annexation as well as those taking part in today's celebrations like members of russia biker gang who helped to make the sation happen. even though it was and their leader of exam results are vladimir putin's favorite bikers. there rally through the city of sebastopol
8:23 pm
marking five years since the russian takeover is more than just a bit of fun. back in two thousand and fourteen they played a very real part in helping the kremlin bring the peninsula under its control. setting up roadblocks and patrolling the streets while the russian special forces in unmarked uniforms took over government buildings. so i assume it's a miracle this all happened this one out for the first time did all happened without bloodshed. a claim that ignores at least six deaths in fifteen disappearances attributed to russian security services by human rights activists over the years since moscow took control. one of them was a member of a member of the region's three hundred thousand strong muslim to tahrir minority and a vocal opponent of the russian takeover of the region in may twenty sixteen he was abducted just a few hundred meters from his home. men dressed as traffic police stopped at
8:24 pm
a friend's car for what appeared to be a routine check. soon they were bundling him into an unmarked minivan. he broke free and tried to run away. but he was soon dragged back. he has not been heard from since. course now with a view that's where the surveillance camera was it's only thanks to that camera that we know what happened. because police came around to the neighbors afterwards to tell them not to report anything they might have seen coming for part of what they read of. evan's parents have sent more than a hundred appeals for help to official bodies sent dozens of letters to president vladimir putin all to no effect his father is convinced the authorities have no interest in getting to the bottom of the case but everything points to the fact that it was the russian security service the f.s.b. the pressure they put on him beforehand the warnings they gave him they would
8:25 pm
interrogate him for hours every time he crossed over into ukraine. in sebastopol the night was really reaches its climax at their patriotic feeling park imperial symbols rub up against soviet icons of rock music and science fiction all in the cause of russia on hand to extend his graduations to the bikers is the leader of crimea as russian ministration. by syrians my thanks goes to those who took part in the unique operation to guarantee the security of the referendum everything was done with such a dastardly such guts that our opponents didn't even have time to realize what was going on. the anniversary is about more than crimean and it's two point five million inhabitants the annexation put russia on a collision course with ukraine and the west that shows no sign of ending would it also did was to change the tone of russian politics as the kremlin found itself in
