from taking this crime ok out to you because it's all that. time i shall join me to meet again on the gulf coast. this is the year's line from berlin president chavez campaign did not conspire with russia that's according to a summary of the long awaited. complete exoneration no collusion no pleasure in trump is wrong this report does not amount to a so-called total exoneration. now lawmakers argue about how to interpret the findings
. of the report in. the program. in times of elections throws up a surprise for the party of the country's military taking the lead opponents crying out. britain's prime minister theresa may comes under increasing pressure again as she fails to find a solution to the threats of a game. makers are trying to take charge of the situation. germany's footballers finally get back groups back and you look at least bit surprised and said now the ones with the last gasp twitter some east germany's recent school crisis finally over. i'm still going to welcome to the program. he said it was a politically motivated witch hunts now u.s.
president donald trump claims he has been fully venting hate it after the report failed to establish that he or his campaign conspired with russia to influence the twenty sixteen presidential election but democrats say some of the findings such as whether the president obstructed justice are not so clear. clearly happy u.s. president donald trump returned to washington on sunday after the u.s. attorney general released the first summary of robert miller's report. that america is a great place for an earth. great place thanks for. the investigation into whether trump and his aides colluded with russia during the twenty sixteen presidential election campaign had become a political thriller in a letter to congress attorney general william barr said the report had not found enough evidence to prove that the trump campaign conspired with the russian
government barr also said the report could not establish that the president of structed muller's investigation. for president trump the message is clear there was no collusion with the russian there was no up struck here in and none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration. so is it all over well no not for the democrats. president trump is wrong this report there's not amounts to a so-called total exoneration special counsel muller was clear that his report quote does not exonerate close quote the president. highly anticipated the news caused mixed reactions some american spoke of a turning point in trump's presidency but others remain skeptical i don't trust to
be honest with you i don't want i don't trust anything they say and i don't trust anybody who's investigating and i think now we can you know sleep well and i think . that will of course complain and some of the. president doesn't need to be impeached by any means while republicans consider muller's report a victory democrats say the attorney general's four page summary does not offer sufficient closure they're calling for the department of justice to release the full reports expect the partisan fight over that issue now as the american public remains as divided as ever so is the president now off the hook for that question to washington correspondent helen humphrey. if you're talking about this weekend that it's in the it was a moment of indication for the president and he says this is
a win but i think it's important to take a look at the language and they spoke from the attorney general william vonn special counsel. no commission is one thing that said what is said that he did not have enough evidence to rule that there was no obstruction of justice one of the reasons for this likely is due to the fact that he was not able to sit down for a one on one interview with the president during the course of his investigation so what did was essentially people will say is possibly up to attorney general william barr who then ruled that no crime had been committed remember of course paul was handpicked for the post by the president himself and the humphrey in washington now to some of the other stories making news around the world at least seven people have been wounded by a rocket attack on the north east of tel aviv in israel officials say the rocket was fired from the gaza strip and no one has claimed responsibility but israel's military has played a monster and they sending reinforcements to the gaza border. government officials
in mali have visited the site of a massacre targeting villages belonging to the flaw in the people at least one hundred thirty four full body just were killed by gunmen on saturday survivors of the attack claimed the ethnic doggone hunters carried out the killings which come amid a surge in deadly violence in the country. chinese president xi jinping is taste visiting france to hold talks with president emmanuel backcross it's the last stop on the present jesus three nation tour in europe aimed at boosting trade and diplomatic ties president urge the e.u. to be wary of china's growing influence around the world. thailand has postponed the announcement of initial results from the country's general election until friday officials gave no explanation for the delight of the polls being seen. a referendum on the country's military junk which seized power in a can five years ago unconfirmed figures show
a party linked to the army has won the popular vote but opposition parties say that the most irregularities this was the country's first election since the military took power. so let's look a little closer this i'm joined by john jay here some but one cd she's a research associate at the german institute for global and area studies and also a professor at bangkok's thompson university welcome to d.w. morning let's start with this delay of the vietnam veterans of these results what is behind that wall i mean this is just another if you sort of electoral irregularities that they experienced over the past months. the context of the election commission is that they have to make sure that the one top party wins the election and so for the past two or three man's death been a lot of creation of an even playing field if you like
and they've been bashing the opposition parties at that at the same time allowing you to do what it was they can do or to take the advantage ok so as far as you are clear in your mind that these are like your irregularities are deliberate. ok so. given that and so that the the other big surprise of election is that. the pro military party appears to have done so well but given what you've just said nobody should be surprised you know actually as a type person i expect that and a lot of the i expect that you have to understand the meaning of this election for the the elites the when. the election is seen as a way to sustain the military rule. to my eyes it from popular bases right so they have to make sure they win the election and they have done everything to
deliver that result so there is so it's not surprising at all and right now i think what's what's expected for the one time not for us is how they could. organize and form the quality ssion and there's a lot of chaos out there at the moment and why do they need a coalition if a century very very you have to have very in charge of pretty much all of that believes of state. just just you say as you declare very have rigged elections why not just rig and say we are everything let's get on with it yes thought on i mean the election has to dick has to be decorative as it is a free and fair election has the look inside to look that way but it still has to deliver the result that is authentic just for the junta so they have to.
actually doesn't win the parliamentary seats they only got popular votes more than the other party so right now they have over one hundred seats and they have to organize a coalition with another party but the most important part is this they have two hundred fifty handpicked senate in that pocket so all together they only need it i live it more on top of the senate seat in order to form the government ok so that as you see they've pretty much got the job got the job done another just need to just do the final bit if you talk about this very calmly and without emotion the idea they say like being stolen you know because you're a political scientist do do do regular times look at this and know which way it's going to go and know that it's all. just an illusion this this is emotional the whole election is very emotional ties i mean i have to sort of suppress my anger
because this is international but but but is very emotional deciding has been denied it and the elections so was that division shows that evolution basically this is the ideological vote you have half of the country that has ruled it for the democratic camp and the rest of the country has opted for the conservative camp if you like and of course half of this country feels that the election is not fair first of all but also they feel that they are defeated and there's no change the election doesn't deliver shape ok thank you so much for your analysis is very interesting a very clear. from see thank you thank you. ten days since a cycler and eat a restaurant mozambican zimbabwe and malawi the seven hundred fifty people on average forty dead thousands more are still unaccounted for or thousands across the
region are battling to prevent disease breaking out and to restore power and water to communities privilege move on he filed this report from a township in zimbabwe still trying to cope with the aftermath of the disaster. a once bustling village reduced to a rocky field kobo was home to more than three hundred residents and government facilities when disaster struck on the night of march fifteenth residents were sleeping. very few of them survived those who did have recounted the horror they experienced in india. as i was asleep and suddenly woke up to the house destroyed but the house was full of water. the first thing we thought was to rescue the kids . then we realized our eldest child was already dead. after that moment is when we all got swept away by the raging floods some of the total in the take
this right here used to be a town that is now under rubble stones came up from the mountains and swept through the city and now a lot of people are believed to be under these stones and residents tell me that more than three hundred people could be under this rubble a lot of people want closure of knowing whether they had relatives are still in this place or they were washed away by the river downstream the relatives of the victims have been using whatever tools are at hand to sort through the rocks and rubble there hoping to recover their loved ones many still don't have final answers about the fate of their families what we're looking for right now is a scorcher if we know we are really to fly like it would be it will be somehow because right now we don't know we still have that feeling maybe they're separating the some would be but recovering bodies can be extremely difficult and the
emotional toll is a men's families with as many as ten members were swept away by the floods leaving few survivors. some of them discovered by t. the boards are known need if you're into the breach or not so we are peeling you digging and seems to. be we have some d.n.a. just for our little ben just used to being buried you know and they didn't fight there has been extensive damage to the country's infrastructure and there have even been geographical shifts rivers have formed in residential areas a further sign of how much time recovery is likely to take. brax expertise prime minister theresa may is meeting her ministers for a crunch cabinet meeting or had a crucial week of parliamentary votes on this issue chances of getting
a back seat deal through a third votes in parliament remote after a crisis meeting at the prime minister's country residence checkers broke up without a grievance and the meeting was held amid reports that members of a government planning to oust her under a new timetable agreed with european leaders last week either the prime minister has until the twelfth of april a twin parliament of backing for her deal or find a viable alternative. straight to london that we're going to talk to correspondent to get mass welcome back so massive pressure on theresa may over the weekend speculations that members of her own government to try to unseat how are things looking for today. they're looking very very shaky i have to say even members of the conservative party that have so far been very loyal to the reason they are now openly telling had to step down and the sun as well the tabloid paper says time's up series say there is
a yeah there is really a sentiment that the prime minister's days might be numbered and it's really not clear whether she will still be prime minister at the end of this week question is is that going to happen and if so who's going to support two of her cabinet colleagues that were meant to be potential interim prime ministers have so far back to us oh let's listen to what they had to say but i think it's it's not going to change. is the right. course for my point if you think i would have a clear. one hundred percent behind the prime minister i'm working flat out as always have been to try to get support for her do you. well today's cabinet meeting will be followed by a week of parliamentary debates and a vote on the brics it's so big it must talk us through what's we're going to say and what's going to happen this week well what's most likely to happen are
so-called indicative suparna meant hereon effectively taking control here of house of commons and trying to vote on several alternative visions of bricks and trying to forge somehow a consensus behind one particular version of gregg's it which would be an alternative to the prime minister's version so these votes are non-binding but if parliamentarians where to unite behind an alternative brags that that was of course a sound a very very strong message to reason they will most likely also put had deal again towards parliament so that deal is i don't knife edge and she hasn't really caught fire whether she's going to do it or not but those are the key developments that we're going to see during this week and by the end of this week we should have either to reason may's deal voted through or we should know if parliament is able
to unite behind something that's not to raise a maze d.-o. mass in london thank you. brazil now where there are growing concerns about the future of the country's rainforest a new government has promised to loosen restrictions on logging in order to boost the economy it wants to build roads and open up in to generous areas to mining and farming environmentalists say the impact could be devastating. the destruction of brazil's rain forests appears unstoppable it goes on year after year the tribal lands of brazil's indigenous people are getting smaller and smaller more out hunting with the i watch ripe the hunters have gathered around a large log their dogs lead them to the spot they don't. think you are one of the hunters calls and a native rodent out of a log like you know i've. been up in the tree tops is where
nutrient rich assign berries grow the live in and from the primeval forest. or form. if you got more you know for nothing without the jungle here we would starve to death only in the rain forest can we find monkeys fruit and nuts you forgot you can mean of the ouattara tory is about is because berlin you are it's one of the last pockets of virgin rain forest left in the region no not from brazil's indigenous authority is in charge of protecting the tribe members of the from left when my a-q. come back without our protection agency food i this group would no longer exist. back years ago larders and farmers invaded what are you about that mine when they were kicked out of the area they were just two kilometers away from the tribal village and i quote from up brought from. the protected areas borders are
a thorn in the side of many farmers they want their cattle to be able to penetrate the reserve. is a cattle farmer who wants to expand he wants to grow matisyahu using life hosting it inside the protected area. you don't prevent american do first of all i believe in god and then on the words of our president also not oh he promised we would soon be able to enter the reserve you know. your book read. brazilian president on our own weekend the indigenous peoples protection authority when he talks office he wants to open up the rain forests to mining and agriculture that would include expanding cotton and soybean farms so the agriculture industry can keep its promise to export to china. also. more than double soybean acreage we could
soon produce two hundred forty million tonnes up from one hundred twenty million tonnes today brazil's environment police ensure that won't happen at the expense of the indigenous people but for how much longer. we made a dash at the complex only worry about what would happen if we were to soon lose this protection we are afraid for selves and for the indios. we have been there. and with good reason their tribal territory has long been coveted by farmers and loggers. sport now germany's national football team beat the netherlands three two in amsterdam on sunday it was their first match in qualifying for the twenty twenty one pm championship at the cambridge from the derby sport is here to talk us through what was what turned out to be an exciting game what did you make of this well whoever said international football had to be boring outside and i just wanted to fill this was a five goal thriller between two of the fiercest rivals on the world stage and
germany off to a blistering start could see on. a bit of a poster boy for the new era having been left out of the last summer's world cup squad serge gnabry then double germany's lead with an absolute peach of a goal but you can't keep the dutch down they fought back and it was memphis the paiute equalized shortly before the end of the game however germany wrote speak asian and a fresh face and nico schultz actually gave them a very late winner which is given yogi loves side a big confidence boost following a very difficult spell last year and also three points in the euro for european qualification campaign did make some big changes to the squad and sunday's victory well doug comes off the back of last week's disappointing one all friendly against serbia so what is your impression of this new team well it really does have the feel of a new look team a lot of us all know already that mats hummels drum bulleting and thomas miller axed from the squad quite recently but lives in a fresh crop of new faces and also implemented a new system they paid to strikers last night which isn't something they they
normally do and they were actually fantastic going forward they weren't quite as good in other areas of the pitch midfield needs a little bit of work and defense appears to lack a few ladies but they you know it was a positive result and we're about to hear from leroy sana he spoke positively about the game last night. listen we have a huge new young players really young team now because we've got lots more to learn but i think we played a really good game as we were. so what do you think as we look across this year do you think by the end of it will have been proven rights to ditch the big names well i think it might be a little bit too early to call that i actually think that he's probably going to be vindicated in his decision to exclude thomas muller from the squad like i say that a wealth of attacking options last night really fantastic going forward but like i said they were a little bit shaky at the back and i wouldn't be surprised if love actually has to make a u. turn on his decision and recall it
a match from old or your own batang to shore up that defense well that's for peace watching mckay richard thank you. kenyon teacher from a remote village just want to a million dollar prize in dubai beach she works in a government run school that's just one computer and internet and to intermittent internet access for the judges said despite these obstacles he had made a huge difference to the lives of his students it's a bachelor who gives away most of his earnings to the poor or is awarded the annual global teacher prize in a ceremony hosted by actor hugh jackman the winner. of the global teacher prize for two thousand and nineteen it's. bitter to bochy. joy as franciscan monk and science teacher peter to be chief is crowned world's best teacher at.
