4:07 pm
anxious as she approaches notre dame cathedral for the first time since a raging fire swallowed it speier and caused its roof to collapse. suddenly everything she's watched on the news becomes more real. i can't understand what happened between the last time i saw her when she was oh so bright then all of a sudden ballot there's nothing left within a fraction of a second. it's like when people die they're here and then minutes later that's it they're gone. as the sense of shock slowly subsides france is turning its focus towards reconstruction. in a televised statement present a manual a concept he wants to see the national landmark repaired within five years no one but you want to get it. global contributions have poured in to help reaching
4:08 pm
nearly one billion euros the more than eight hundred year old cathedral was already being renovated before the blaze with repairs before the fire estimated to cost about a quarter of what's now been donated. to spite the sense of loss many feel signs of optimism can already be found on the streets of paris because it's very ambitious but i really hope it's doable and i think that france is very capable of doing great things in a short amount of time like we showed that after the war. we won't be short of money and there's a lot of enthusiasm if everybody works together we can do it and i think french people will support my call to get it done. now france is calling on global talents to submit ideas for recreating the famous spire. international competition will allow us to decide whether we need to rebuild the spire whether we need to reconstruct aspire exactly as it was conceived in designed
4:09 pm
by view lulu duke. or whether as is often the case in the evolution of cultural heritage and cathedrals we need to give new to dom cathedral a new spire adapted to the techniques and challenges of our era. it could take years before we know whether the cathedral will return to its previous glory or receive a new look for the future but either way it seems notre dame is determined to remain one of europe's most visited sites to be seen. let's get more now we are joined by correspondent lisa lewis who has the latest from paris and lisa we know that the firefighters who were involved in extinguishing these flames and go to don that they gave a press conference a short while ago what did they say yes absolutely they said that right now they're still sixty five firefighters in the cathedral to watch
4:10 pm
it and make sure that days no other fire that could go off they're also looking into weak spots at this very moment and to make sure that nothing will actually fall down or crumble apparently the gobbles are one weak spot because the beforehand there were they were being helped by the roof and that obviously has now gone up in flames the firefighters were also addressing criticism that it had taken them very long to get there they say it only took us ten minutes so we were there quite quickly and they talked about how it actually was to fight the fire and not let's listen to one part of that press conference. of course. human life was at risk that's the most important thing. and our colleagues were not severely injured of course but of course not saddam is special we knew about the attention it would create. we knew we would be watched. i could see the number of people that gathered
4:11 pm
around. the mission was special because of the remarkable response we got the people thanking us bringing presents it was deeply moving to have the chance to intervene here if you didn't want. to know but lisa i mean still one of the big looming questions is how exactly this fire got started yes exactly the investigation is still ongoing i talked to the paris prosecutor's office office earlier today and they said they was no privileged theory so far but what they confirmed to me was that at the beginning when the fire started two days ago before seven o'clock at night it was a first alarm that went off and six of her security personnel i went to look for a possible fire that couldn't find anything and only twenty minutes later when a second alarm went off they finally found the fire and that's when it all started when they call the fire brigade obviously now the paris prosecutor's office also
4:12 pm
told me that this investigation would probably take a very long and it would also would take very long until they would know what was the what the cause of this was but apparently so far at least they seem to be thinking that all this happened because of an accident. meantime we know that the prime minister has also been speaking on this he announced in international competition what are the details on that. yes well it all philip the prime minister spake earlier today and he said that the government would organize an international competition architecture competition to rebuild the spire at the cathedral they would also the government will say it would also offer seventy five percent tax refund for any donation of up to one thousand euro's and also the government will set up a commission to oversee the nation process so as to make sure that every euro that
4:13 pm
is actually is actually being donated will go into the risk construction ing of the cathedral not saddam lisa lewis in paris thank you. you're watching d.w. news still to come on the program there are mexico's equivalent of japan's cherry blossoms the flower of flowers of the tree first to life every spring but who made them popular in the latin american countries you might be surprised to find. the first three heading out to syria where paramedics i think i'll hold refugee camp say that children are dying because they are not getting enough medical care the kurdish red crescent says that its workers are simply overwhelmed tens of thousands have arrived at the camp in the north east of the country in recent weeks

4:15 pm
islamic state built treated the wounded and saw much suffering and death but dramatic scenes are unfolding here as well seven hundred kept reza but his help is limited with a lack of specialists equipment and medicine. that is materials aren't the only challenge personnel is too and then there logistical challenges it's a battle that's constantly verging on disaster disasters. many mothers are angry they came here hoping for quick help but are often left short well i'm off there's hardly any medicine here we haven't been given any. the situation is very tough particularly with this rain for my children they're always sick of the day man. no one planned for such a large number of refugees seventy five thousand fled the fighting in bargo which had been the last i a stronghold here it's

a sad existence with no prospects food supplies are tight and those without money struggle to survive children do our jobs to stay afloat a dollar for instance questions chickpeas for hummus which earns him twenty cents per kilo that means that i need the money to buy bread and groceries with it for my family. and many here still cling to the so-called islamic state and the idea of their caliphate despite the terror and the thousands who died . vilks says he always helps anyone in medical need with no questions asked. but he can't always help this child died from malnourishment just one of two hundred twenty five who have died this year alone i must move it up it's not the most moving thing of course was when they brought in a childhood. and there ever more children dying due to the malnutrition caused by their flight to stop before. in the end they'll keep believes prospects here are
