9:04 am
these protesters including getting rid of some top officials why is it that the protesters are still on the streets until now because they are only going to act it's a problem they say ok that would. be dust but until now no one know even what is the president but it didn't matter because she used it as a main point i mean and also the secret service who killed more than hundred people in just four months or just until now. just a no one brought to justice just a main street for many people is to just so you're saying there's a lack of credibility there in the military council says they want to reach out to the protesters and help create a civilian government within two years but people just don't believe that. this two years is not for me to cover people need immediately civilian government just as well as a program what we see you know is with done it is also not just a ball just because to get
9:05 am
a little short time to try to solve what is program of war in the modern ten for. the demands of people to have these forty years of government to include people who was also in a position party or to fight you know going to. what do you think is needed right now at this very volatile time to make sure to ensure that sudan has a democratic transition first of all people need to die a myth that the civilian government this is like a demand for people don't give it up that's what they have to do the second things which is a need to protect people who commit a crime against going to see these people to justice justice is to be given court and if we don't get to order to govern. i mean did he was not a criminal because of committing treason if you decided of. course the people he didn't want them to have a justice to bring all these people who commit crime again this is for his people not only the president also the people who was in the ticket

a set of his own or just people who couldn't support this since beginning of this protest do something so it's very important to see justice do we know anything about the whereabouts of president bashir. is it because problem until now no one know what he said you know and so much people don't believe anymore in this army government where they are not showing i just what is his and this is probably much extinction also in national. congress party what was saw as a bottle of the government is said to still exist. and to succumb program will have to be sort of no one knew until now how even is it another to get the blame for what is going on in sudan right so there's a lack of trust in the military council just very briefly where do you see this playing out over the next few weeks if the protesters say we're not backing down. that would be more coming up somehow kind of way for giving the people jobs
9:07 am
to do to believe i mean you said they have a press conference going on there's a some point who was a hoot and he's like one step forward but people need more i mean the next days maybe the people will have to stay in protest more and more money would be more dramatic. development coming all right adam bahar a human rights activist living here in berlin thank you so much for joining us it only comes. now united nations officials have warned that a fresh disaster is looming a month after cyclonic die struck southeast of africa hundreds of thousands of people are still facing hunger and disease the u.n. children's fund says more aid is needed in mozambique malawi and zimbabwe nearly one thousand people died because of the cycle and more than two million were affected many of them in the city of betta in mozambique. houses destroyed and

9:19 am
people are saying and you know what they would have doubts if tiger woods would ever play again after the win you know because of all the back injuries that he's had and after the win yesterday you know tiger woods himself said that his children have only ever seen the pain that golf has caused him you know any time he try to swing a club you know he'd fall to the ground so you know yes nice comeback absolutely historic you know not just because of you know for golf but also for him on a very private level let's actually take a look at the at it. it was the moment of redemption for tiger woods was the significance of the forty three year old's first major in eleven years could be heard in the roar of the crowed hughes was on the scene an emotional embrace of his family so he made apologized that an infamous twenty ten press conference after lou details of his passionate life were made public was only two years ago he pleaded guilty for driving under
9:20 am
the influence yet here he was again triumphant on the last day of the masters was the overnight leader italy's francesco molinari had slipped up to bogey's on the back nine leaving the door open to the chasing pack. lebow and it was woods who took advantage by lying recent back problems to grab the lead who was to crowed willing the ball towards the whole woods never looked likely to relinquish it was released and joy were at some woods his face as he claimed his fifth green jacket on fifteenth major he must know have his sights set on jack nicklaus's record of eighteen was you know lima we
9:21 am
saw there it's been such a difficult road back for tiger woods how unlikely did that victory seem over the past few years oh highly unlikely i mean golf experts needier experts had written this man off his physical and emotional it's issues were just seen to be way too big to surmount you know the chaos in his private life the marriage problems the cheating scandals and then of course his physical condition you know he's had four back injuries and he you know he was really public about it he was constantly in keralites in pain he said that he could bend he said he could be any walk so you know to his a goal you know and he was also. rest in peace mentioned he was arrested for driving under the influence and five drugs were found in his body many painkillers and goods himself had come out saying that you know i don't know if i could ever take off again or get a loan on lawman life so it's incredible he beat all odds you know and he did it also beating some of the best in golf yesterday and you know let's hear from the
9:22 am
man himself now could have had. more drama. than what we hope we had out there and. not in a warm bouldering. such as hard. just to come back here and to play as well as i did and did all the things all the little things well this week. and to do it here this is that so much to me my family this tournament. to have everyone here it's something i'll never forget the whole motional he is there lima what you think comes next for tiger is going to dominate now for the next how many years so the motivation is there the will is there we've seen the self believe he has fifteen majors and you know he knows he can make history if he does surpass jack nicholson as you know a record of eighteen so he knows he's really close to that but of course the only concern that i have is that you know the only thing holding him back is that he
9:23 am
won't get younger he is forty three years old and of course as you know his health you know can his body keep up can he sustain these sort of performances on a regular basis this was one tournaments but can he do it on a regular basis and i think that might prove to be a bit more tricky if so do you think that we could see him eclipse that record of eighteen majors you know when it comes to tiger woods i am not writing this man off because you know we all did it after two thousand and nine and he proved us all wrong yesterday all right to limit his four thank you so much for bringing us that story. now in the bundesliga byron munich's robert levin dusky and kingsley come an x. jane just blows in training before their teams match with just a thought in a fight for the title both of byron's boxers were in the starting eleven and they quickly had to sell darth on the ropes. after his midweek bats kings they call mom picked up where he left off landing the opening blow after just fifteen minutes.
