8:00 am
this is the w. news live from berlin germany's five g. mobile frequencies go up for auction today who will be building the ultra fast mobile networks and can it be done without hardware from the chinese tech giant wall way also coming up. cycling devastates mozambique the president says the death toll could well rise to more than a thousand much as the port city of pyra has been completely swept away. and with just ten days to go frex it remains in disarray is pretty faces
8:01 am
a constitutional crisis the speaker of the house of commons says there can be no new vote as it stands we'll get analysis from london. i'm dr thomas great to have you with us well the question today is who will be building germany's next generation mobile phone network telecom companies are being invited starting today to bid for radio frequencies to operate ultra fast five g. mobile networks five g. is the technology for example that would make autonomy striving possible on a wide scale while the biggest so far are deutsche telekom britain's vodafone spain's telefonica and a german company. it's a newcomer to the market doesn't have any network of its own now. other parts of
8:02 am
the world five g. has already taken off in the asia pacific region for example there are forecast to be about one hundred twenty million five hundred subscribers and about two years time by twenty twenty one network supplier ericsson expects north america to be following to be trailing in second place with forty eight million and that's followed by europe with twenty two million and latin america with three million the mena region the middle east and africa with about two million subscribers expected by twenty twenty one we're joined now by stephen beard he's been following this very closely today from d.w. business hi there stephen o'bryan d.w. set to be a technology that will be dominating the future of communications were right absolutely five g. is going to make everything possible from what you hear from the hype from autonomous driving to remote surgery it is basically the data loads that is capable of are many many times higher than what we're used to right now with for jesus
8:03 am
something that took us maybe a minute to download will take us a matter of seconds under this plan it's a very intensive plan though in terms of infrastructure it's very expensive and very expensive and it could be could be usually profitable for those who get the bid that's the idea the profitability might take a long time because of those high infrastructure costs which the telecom c.e.o. even recently saying that he expects it to be anywhere between i believe two and three hundred three and five hundred billion euros for the build out across europe so of course that means that carriers chip makers are going to want to see more applications for five g. and everything from your microwave to your refrigerator to your car all of these the internet of things yeah i. will only be possible it will help drive g.m.'s it was you know there's a huge controversy of course surrounding the build out of the network here in germany and the rest of europe as well almost every major telecom carrier says that it needs equipment from china's wall way to control costs and meet deadlines but the u.s. has been pressuring germany and it's all the. allies here in europe to prohibit
8:04 am
while way components here's why. remote brain surgery in china the patient was in the beijing hospital a neurosurgeon three thousand kilometers away in the southern island province of high none of the light images and medical data were transmitted by an ultra fast five g. wireless network with video conferencing and other technology from quad way this is just the latest example of the game changing use of new super fast five g. networks europe also wants to use the technology but a space in a problem by way is one of the main producers of five g. hardware but the company is said to be too close to the chinese government apart from unconfirmed allegations of espionage there are concerns that hallway technology could pose a security risk if it were used in sensitive infrastructure in europe was that there's now that recognize that china is also pursuing its sort of teaching interest through economic policy are for so we mustn't be naive when it comes to
8:05 am
important infrastructure projects like the awarding of five g. license let's forgive it sounds. complicating the move to next generation mobile standards is pressure from the us not to use while away hardware chinese foreign minister y. e meeting in brussels with counterparts of cold security warnings groundless and politically motivated and suggested they were designed to discredit huawei. that it's up to now wireless network operators in the e.u. could decide themselves whose technology that is but in some countries in the block the debate is growing about how to restrict the use of equipment from non european companies that could pose a risk to critical infrastructure and that could affect huawei. was all about critical infrastructure so even is this infrastructure even possible five g. possible without chinese wall or will you listen to a lot of the carriers the ones that are bidding today on those five g. frequencies then the answer would be no what they say is if you look at. cost if
8:06 am
you look at the speed of buildout that is the technology that's already out there the network gear that huawei provides they're well advanced or well ahead of their competitors you look at ericsson nokia and there's some other ones in their way again the cost is much lower and the dancing is much higher and so they say there's going to be possible to do without them and that's really the big question is do you do you tell your carriers if you german government not to lean on huawei but also that then affects their profitability that affects the build out of the network itself which you were so desperately striving to get built out on time and america's been saying you know western companies need to get up to speed on this because there's so much in terms of intelligence as far as washington is concerned a stake in the u.s. is saying it will exclude germany from intelligence sharing if it uses wall way would germany risk its relationship with washington over a five g. there's a lot of questions about it it's hard to know and it's hard to know the conversations that are happening on multiple levels on this and we saw all nato as top general for example saying the same thing there's going to be hard to share defense
8:07 am
security intelligence with allies who are using huawei i think it's hard to imagine them not sharing intelligence but this obviously is a big stumbling point in the road the problem is these conversations are based on such a high level of technical knowledge that very few people in the public domain can really sort of master know see sort of have to take people at their word and that's really hard when you see ulterior motives at the same time i mean the u.s. is in a trade dispute with china europe is torn between chinese markets and its u.s. relationship so there's a whole lot of other aspects to this that aren't so clear and that are you know pulling at just the one narrative thread here of why is it dangerous or not or not and we're going to have to be looking at the technologies that you just mentioned there what's what's exactly involved here to get a grip on the story completely stephen for now thanks very much if you run. all soon south east africa now the devastation caused by a cycling that's finally becoming clear of more than five days after tore through the region in mozambique eighty four people are confirmed dead but the government
8:08 am
fears the death toll could rise more than a thousand red crossers cyclon die damaged or destroyed ninety percent of buildings the port city of by. meanwhile neighboring zimbabwe some three hundred people are dead or missing. there survivors are digging graves for those killed by cyclonic. she money money has been the worst hit district in zimbabwe. scores of people are dead and still many more are missing. my mother my father my two younger sisters including the one who had brought us food earlier and the one with the child all dead. my house was destroyed in the floods and i was buried underneath my daughter who was in bed with me was washed away from me that a big a flood carried my father away. and that it's been open and that's what we say. the
8:09 am
cycle has wreaked havoc on zimbabwe's infrastructure blocking the transport of much needed help. i'm going to see my family i don't know how they're doing because there's no communication and the roads are inaccessible because of the heavy rains and i'm not sure how i'll find my way. but the most affected areas are still cut off from the outside world. these boys were only just rescued after being trapped in their school for two days. two of their fellow pupils and the stuff member had been killed after a boulder crushed through their dormitory. this situation in zimbabwe and mozambique in the aftermath of the day that affected the two neighboring countries is getting desperate particularly here in new money with people having to walk long
8:10 am
distances because they've been cut out from essential services bridges have been washed away vehicles kind to reach those areas where people need assistance in this area you can seem odd because composite these please be taking in the mud we have spoken to. people along the way we have doctors without borders while also trying to reach people we affected but big country to those areas because it's virtually impossible. time to check in now with some of the other stories making the news at this hour heavy flooding across the u.s. midwest has left that list at least three people dead there officials say two hundred ninety others have been rescued after the missouri river flooded much of the state of nebraska the region suffered hundreds of millions of dollars damage the state's governor described as the most widespread disaster in the state's history. new zealand's prime minister usin the are there and says she will never
8:11 am
speak the name of the gunman who killed fifty people in last week's attack on two mosques in christchurch shirts in public and the media to do the same and instead to focus on the victims and survivors of the attack here. francis prime minister says he will ban yellow vests protest on paris a shame to lose a government protesters took to the streets again over the weekend with a number of them ransacked and stores and restaurants in central powers the yellow vest demonstrations began as an anti-tax protest in cities across the country four months ago. well in the netherlands police there have a main suspect under arrest for opening fire on a tram and tracks monday two other people are also reported to be in detention the terrorism threat level has been scaled back that following the arrests of the henri's have not yet specified a motive for the attack that left three people dead and five wounded some of them
8:12 am
in critical condition police say terrorism or a private dispute or possible motives. the latest interviews rebecca ritter's is standing by for us in the morning rebecca do we have any new details about a possible motive for the attack. good morning brian well details about the main suspect in this crime are starting to emerge this morning local media here is reporting that the thirty seven year old turkish man was recently released from prison where he'd done a short stint inside for breaking parole conditions. he has a long rap sheet criminal record he was known to police he's a violent crime theft so they have the details that are emerging but police are also looking into alleged links that he and some family members had to a salafist organization that originated in germany but police haven't been
8:13 am
saying much more about the motive i'm afraid they they are not ruling anything out they're still looking into those possible terror motive and also just just somebody who was on the edge ok rebecca where the suspect has a criminal past as you mentioned a solid fist tires as well police are also looking into a possible links with so-called islamic state do you have any information about that for us today. that's right brian as i mentioned they are looking at all possible motives and all possible links but nothing more has been released about any possible links to i yes i did mention that some family members may be linked to this organization indeed the man himself may also be linked to the salafist organization but but nothing more to any alleged links with the i.r.s. ok can you fill us in on the other individuals who are now in detention. well
8:14 am
details still are still few and far between unfortunately brian i can fill you in on too much more what i can say is that a third suspect was arrested late last night so that's three in total now in custody obviously the main suspect is that thirty seven year old turkish man another person was arrested earlier yesterday and as i said a third person last night police are obviously questioning and investigating their involvement rebecca what have been the reactions where you are to this shooting. well police people are obviously very shocked brian i mean this is crimes like this are very rare in the netherlands of gun crime in particular they have been here largely spared of these sort of terrorist attacks in recent years so people have been shocked but this is the site of the attack and as you'll see behind me they've already cleared the site the tram has been removed and the city is back up and
8:15 am
running this morning people getting on with things and trying to keep good spirits and not a not be sort of harmed by this attack rebecca rose for us and thanks very much for becca. it's to britain now and with just ten days to go before britain is due to pull out of the european union there's a new crisis in law that the speaker of the house of commons john bercow has announced that a third vote on prime minister teresa mayes backs a plan will not take place because it breaks the rules rules dating back to sixty four only a plan that differ substantially can be voted on burgos ruling came as a surprise both the government and parliament let's listen to what he said. what the government can all legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same even proposition or substantially the same proposition as last of last week which was rejected by one hundred forty nine. this ruling
8:16 am
should not be regarded as my last word on the subject p.d.s. simply meant to indicate that test which the government must meet in order for me to rule that a third meaningful vote can legitimately be held in this parliament chris session. let's go straight to london and interview correspondent bigot moss outside parliament for us to get what does this mean does mays back some plan in its current form now look bad. well we have to remember brian that still the default position that if there is no solution to one of the government's top legal advisor calls a constitutional crisis if there is no solution to bret's and then the default position is still that at the end of next week at the twenty ninth of march that britain will leave the european union and there might not be any plan for the
8:17 am
future at hand so this is still what's most likely to happen now nobody wants the u.k. to crash out or not many people want the u.k. to crush out the european union with a future plan and hand so the government here and also brussels they will do what they can in order to avert a crisis and also the government is hoping that they somehow find another technicality maybe a way around this problem what the speaker has just put in front of them so either a long extension looks like he or the u.k. really leaving at the end of next week with no plan ok now the government seemed completely blindsided by the speaker's use of rule dating back to sixteen zero four let's listen to what bracks and secretary stephen barclay had to say we need to reconsider my. speech. to the office reconsideration.
8:18 am
overthrew. so are we looking at the possibility of a no deal bracks and it is that the most likely possibility in ten days time. i would say is the most likely but it's still something that really threatens a lot of parliament ariens and that's part of trees and my strategy that she has put the pressure on she's always said it's this deal. did open onto the last minute before in peace a very just you know less than two weeks of before the deadline in order and once again for farhad elan to put it again and again in front of parliament she wanted to put pressure on the many m.p.'s that don't want to know your scenario and now the government would just try to maybe change the wording in the meantime they're also trying to get their deal three through consensus they're still talking to the northern irish m.p.'s they're trying to have somehow another go at changing the
8:19 am
votes and changing the parliamentary iraq from the take so that if they do find another way of getting this in front of the house of parliament somehow you know another technicality that allows them to put it in front of them which is still what they're hoping to do that then they have this time the votes in front of them the votes to get this deal through but it doesn't look very likely there's still a lot of opposition to terrorism estill that she still hopes somehow to get it through parliament ok well briefly what happens next where does the government go from here. well we know that there is some it this week so it's a reason may we'll go there most likely she will ask for and it's extension. because if there really is no or no other way here forward she will have to ask for an extension principally and in any case also if she does get
8:20 am
a deal through there's not much there's not enough time to to get all the ducks in a row to people prepare for brakes though that's a very likely scenario and here in london at least the expected expectation is that the e.u. will accept it but of course has to be unanimous decision so nothing is clear when it comes to breaks it. for us in london from parliament thanks very much. well with teresa mayes government running out of time and with no solution in sight her people in germany see the crisis in britain we have some berliners how the e.u. should handle it. i think the e.u. should be tough because i think in england the punch and judy show is taking place on the other hand there is a good side to this because those who are against the e.u. are now seeing want to happen it acts as a deterrent. and. you don't have to stick to hard deadlines just because they're there you have to see what's best for the e.u.
8:21 am
. and the best option would be to consider how you can help a country that maybe should come back to e.u. . postponing it helps they should postpone. the cinema so you don't make a point of being tough and not make it easy for the u.k. i mean. yeah i prefer the idea of pushing ahead diplomatically by negotiation that way there's the possibility of a positive outcome if you haven't found the right solution yet then you can't leave the you you have to sit down and find a solution to force a decision just because the deadline is now i don't like that. but. i think we should act in a consideration manner so we can persuade the british to rethink and unite the european union again after all it's not good for either side if we split up. and still yemen our civilian casualties risen three months truce and who died at the port city were wide allayed arrives the norwegian refugee council says sniper
8:22 am
and explosive attacks have been growing one of the region's most affected is that around. the war is back on many fronts in yemen including the south these images from the who three rebels were filmed south of the ports if it died last week there is no sign of the cease fire agreed upon between the two things and the saudi military coalition last december fighting died down for a few weeks now both sides are focused on victory. will finish you off in the valleys in the mountains in the deserts. yemen's lifeline seem non-existent now the port of her died it was supposed to be under u.n. supervision to allow urgently needed humanitarian aid into the country. but only small ships are able to dock and only after i creating inspection. to drive
8:23 am
into town is a life threatening mission fraught with attacks destroyed streets and bridges and countless checkpoints. but a deliveries take days according to the u.n. . those who need it most in the besieged city get only a fraction of it. fish was once in abundance in the markets today it's an affordable for most food prices have more than doubled since the war began and hardly any fisherman take to the sea the stace. are only the most likely to play out on fisherman risk because of the airstrikes. many of the movement killed. a few weeks ago a missile hit four of them on the top. half of the health clinics the shot and those that are open but overwhelmed they treat about eight hundred patients per day many of them wait for weeks to see a doctor in the dialysis section more than forty machines have stopped working
8:24 am
because no replacement parts are available it's one of many shortages that leaves people in despair. at the am i'm feeling really bad sometimes i come here and ask for treatment but i have to wait up to ten days because it's so full here and they want let me in. all of that . but abdullah arafat has a new lease on life his mother brought her weakened man nourished baby boy here. and to have the safire the doctors said he had infections all over and was underfed so i can't nurse him but they gave him ok and now he's doing a little better. than a handler i said. but i'd hardly ever arrived in yemen's remote areas after four years of war and thousands killed many were hoping the peace process
8:25 am
would bear fruit. instead bitter disappointment prevail. we have some sports news now and a new look a new sponsor and a new team bus the german national football team gather home of course the w. the new team sponsor germany are preparing for a friendly match on wednesday against serbia followed by a tough qualifying match for the twenty twenty euros against fellow favorites netherlands over the weekend drug love and cap money or a loyal were absent for the unveiling of the new team boss goalkeeper noirs the only player over thirty called up for the upcoming two matches in a reworked german squad devoid of many of the big names of the past decade. and unlikely visitor of the training grounds of real madrid this week barcelona's star in argentina captain leo messi is training its solely with the national team squad when you join them for the first time since last year's world cup in russia
8:26 am
messi opted to take a sabbatical after his country's disappointing early exit at the world cup before the tournament he suggested he would retire from the national team if argentina did not win. he's now joined his compatriots ahead of friendly matches against france where law and morocco. reminder now of our top stories at this hour germany's a five g. mobile frequencies are or options a day there are four bidders so far as the big question is whether pressure from washington will stop the network being built with out of quitman from the chinese tech giant huawei. and with just ten days to go no cracks it remains in complete disarray as britain faces a possible constitutional crisis the speaker of the house of commons has ruled that there can be no further vote on prime minister may's bret's a deal as it currently stands. the state of the news live from berlin up next
