but everyone has a right to. everyone has the right to say. the but. the but. this is the w.'s line from berlin back to square one the british prime minister buys more time for brags that theresa may is back in downing street but if she can persuade british lawmakers to pass her deal this time the u.k. will only have a couple more weeks to propose an alternative way forward so that all breaks it
6:01 pm
options are wide open while the prime minister's own position grows more perilous also coming up. we of procuring the pocket. book. we brokered. a message to new zealand from a new mom whose mosque was attacked in christ church one week on from the shooting that claimed fifty lives a nation pauses for empathy and unity. and will meet to work the fans from english who are planning a trip to the rugby world cup in japan and get this it promises to be quite a journey especially because it's by bike. thank you so much for your company everyone well we begin this broadcast in the
6:02 pm
united kingdom where the race is on for british prime minister theresa may to come up with a way to save her briggs a deal after european union leaders agreed to delay the break that process. but sporting it beyond march twenty ninth all right let's take a look now at the timeline the next state that to bear in mind is march twenty sixth because on that day it's very likely that a vote in the british parliament will take place to approve the word drawl deal that may's government agreed with the e.u. now lawmakers as you might recall have already rejected that deal twice if they were checked again britain will likely crash out of the e.u. and that would happen on april twelfth but the u.k. can also use that time of course to find an alternative solution with the european union if the british parliament approves a deal however the deadline for an orderly brags that will be extended may twenty second donald tosca the u.
6:03 pm
council president welcomed the european union's unanimous decision to delay bragg's it take a listen to what he said. drags it the real cause so. much decisions by the e.u. . and the u.k. to delay that cleavage allow for an extension. so i am really happy about this development as i said yesterday it remains that the very proof and the thing that possible. do you. decided to rethink its strategy all is ok to go through fifty which is a priority for the u.k. government. the fate of. so far of british friends all right so much to digest let's go straight to brussels to do you have a correspondent barbara ways or who is standing by barbara last night in the
6:04 pm
leaders agreed to extend the deadline beyond march twenty ninth giving the u.k. some breathing space why did it take them so long to reach that decision and are they satisfied with the outcome give us a post-mortem. there is one really simple reason because there are twenty seven so if everybody only gets ten minutes to talk about bracks it and what he thinks about it and how he or she things their country are affected by it then we do the calculation this drags on and then of course somebody says something somebody is sort of gives a. counter speech and says no no let's not do this it's a strategic trap and so on it's of course as soon as they start talking about strategies things get more difficult away ever in general quite united in what they wanted it was just they were just more dates bandied around somebody joked last night one of the diplomats here is at the council and then you find on tinder so
6:05 pm
basically they in the end got to they got together and they figured out that this would be a smart solution and today actually everybody was quite content with themselves not only and the americans said yes we avoided this live action we've given britain a bit of time but they know really need to get their act together we can't do anything if they don't decide and also mundell mcclung the french president he was quite happy and said yes this is what we needed kuna meant unanimity and to act together and not to sort of have the european project taking pasta. by the brits so that is that front has been closed again and everybody goes into the weekend smiling all right while smiling so the ball is back into the court of the u.k. leaders in brussels now i i'm expecting are waiting to see what london's next move will be. absolutely and there seems to be a certain amount of movement there and when we think back to last night what happened here at the council was that leaders had to reason may in here for an hour
6:06 pm
and a half that's a long time and asked her over and over again what is your plan b. if you parliament rejects the deal again what will you do and she didn't have a single answer which is again then everybody found pretty annoying and so now in london there seems to be a certain amount of movement and everybody here will be quite happy to see that because now there seems to have been an agreement between the opposition and government to hold a series of indicate if next week that means everybody everything every possible solution to correct that is put on the table like would you like with the customs union would you like breaks it was in no way solution would you like bracks it was those of what would you like basically every sort of permutation of correct it is put on the table and this will be voted on and then you quite easily can see where the majority of the house is sort of where it is and what parliamentarians really
6:07 pm
want is something trees may should have done in general after she lost the vote first the first time around but now it's at the last moment it seems that some movement begins to happen in london and everybody here is sort of is quite contentious that there is some movement there on the other side of the channel what happens now after the e.u. agreed to put out drags it until at least april twelfth are there contingency plans in place for a no deal crash out of the. everybody of course warns against being over optimistic never says you know we can't believe this will you know turn out well and until we see it here and we sort of have it on paper at the council building in brussels which is going to be a couple of weeks again so contingency plans have been made the european commission has prepared to legislation for planes to keep planes flying to keep the trucks rolling over european highways to keep permits intact and lots and lots all these
6:08 pm
many full details of everyday life which sort of really are based on european regulation to keep things moving after it possible heartbreaks it and mario draggy the the president of the u. if the e.c. be the european central bank he criticized some european countries and said they haven't done enough and i'm going to america the german chancellor said that doesn't hold true for germany she things german industry is quite well prepared the dutch so they are quite well prepared so basically the country that the countries that will be affected most think they've done their best by visa reporting from brussels thank you. all right now as we have to stay with some of the other stories making news around the world. north korea has unexpectedly pulled its staff from an inter korean liaison office just six months after was set up well the development is a said back for peace on the peninsula it came just hours after the u.s.

6:11 pm
we know all right and do we know how far these suspects were in planning. planning to go in their plot. so what we know so far is that they had already contacted arms dealers to acquire weapons for the attack we already know that they had rented a car for the a planned attack and we know that there would he have the funds to acquire those weapons and pay the car so there was already contact with other funding groups that were helping them in this planning who has been arrested do we know more about the suspects what we know is that there were eleven suspects all in total have been arrested today there were twenty police men involved in the the arrests around the area of frankfurt and that of the. eleven people there ten are currently being very sufficiently being invested and what we know is that these suspects are allegedly salafist so they're part of

6:15 pm
muslim community at that were affected specifically in this attack and how it was done with the consultation of a few muslim groups in new zealand to get their approval they're ok that this was an ok thing to do an ok way to show their support the page has got thousands of response by the thousands women posting selfies of themselves in head scarves as well as reasons why they've chosen to wear a headscarf on this day in support and we actually have some explanations of a few women why they decided to wear a headscarf or have that here it will be a sign of support to the woman that there's a lot you cannot talk community they are part of a community and i'm going forward i think no need to get a lot of support and i can realise that they are in this community all my primary reason was that the. issue anybody else turns up when. i want to stand between him and anybody he might be pointing at it. and i don't
6:16 pm
want him to tell the difference because there isn't. wow talk about solidarity there are very a powerful statement made by that woman there was some reaction been like to this to this action of course when it comes to headscarves a bit of a dicey subject because this is by some people seen as a symbol of oppression for for women in the muslim community not having equal rights to men but in the context of this shooting it's being widely embrace and very positively received we've just seen some we have some reaction online of muslim women responding quite positively we have one on the head scarf or harmony facebook page itself saying can't find enough words to thank you ladies for your support today we really appreciate all what you've done for us always united and then we have another reaction from this one on twitter with the hit with the hashtag headscarf or harmony to all those who have chosen to wear the headscarf in solidarity today and those who chose to do this in other ways know that you are

6:21 pm
president and the more but the constitution is in the same time is not valued by the people because it has changed it has been changed by bush because many times in the last years of his reign in order to keep his interests or to exclude potential challenge so you have the protesters were also calling for a transition which is extra constitutional and they want all the people of the figures who are known for their integrity to lead the new transit through vision and do we expect this turns the period to take place or the regime is already preparing for. such a fuss and would freak and his clown in all that to reorganize and have the chance to to stay in power in another form and the people of it and continuing

6:23 pm
to school in they want to since media because they had to go and fetch water rather than going to the scoop so the west affected and they were a little bit led to children and do we mean that the lack of access to clean water affects rural populations and refugees worldwide in twenty nine countries across the asia pacific region water resources are scarce plumbing facilities are often missing too there are no public toilet facilities for women in rural india although the government is trying to change that rising water consumption is also an issue. this is new style and just think as it is drinking water is not the only problem water consumption is increasing in general especially due to consumer behavior and eating habits we have are becoming more similar to those in western countries with lots of meat and a very high water footprint the clothes and all the other water intensive goods we consume but also affect the water crisis the have to. the united nations report
