headquarters in madrid saying their electoral success sends out a clear message that social democratic parties in europe have a future. social democracy has a long history but above all it has a great future because of its great present. which spain is an example of. they are listening to us outside of spain we want to form a pro european government on strengthen europe not make it weaker and. following the story for us in madrid as the public fully elice pablo what was the main message of sanchez's speech. well as you heard there gave a very clear message that he wanted a very clearly pro european party but also there were a chance from the crowd there at the socialist party headquarters where they said
1:03 am
no and of course that's a very event on the head of citizens. because there is a possibility that if he were to join forces with citizens they would have a clear majority vote sanchez responded to the crowd by saying well i think everybody knows that that's not going to happen essentially and undock could be basically what we're sort of all expecting here is that he will enter into discussions on a dialogue with. me that's put most of course this anti austerity left wing party and will he be able to form a coalition do you think and how long will it take. was it just said there he'll have to enter into had discussions with more than likely we need to put most of their leader publicly s.e.'s got in touch with heather sanchez and essentially said that they want to go into government with the socialists but it's not going to be easy because president sanchez will have to also ask for the support of
1:04 am
smaller parties from around spain but the key issue here is that it looks that he will likely that he will not actually need the support of the pro separatist parties from the region of catalonia ok but significant we also see a big gain for the far right nationalist vox party what does that mean. well it's been an interesting night for at the right wing blog people here in spain have been calling calling it the people's party of the party. and did terribly well in fact it was the worst result in their history but on the flip side as you might ask me there vox seem to have taken many votes away from the people's party and is. somewhat of a shock for many spaniards in other ways it hasn't because it was sort of expected in the opinion polls that was what they were showing but also vox said that they would probably get more m.p.'s than they managed to get in the polls and it looks
1:05 am
that they have around ten percent of the vote and they had a very clear come pain which was to centralize spain to give less autonomy to the regions most notably of course a couple lonia and that seems to have struck a chord with many people who felt that the traditional parties of the people's party and the socialists of course and an even citizens you know the liberals they weren't being as hardline as they felt. they should be and as i said it seems to have struck a chord with you know ten percent of the electorate ok a fractured political landscape in spain thanks for that insight public fully in madrid. and now to some of the other stories making news around the world. scotland's first minister nicolas sturgeon has said her party will do what ever it takes to keep scotland in the european union in edinburgh she told delegates at her

1:08 am
communities have been devastated by the storm's destructive force. the wind destroyed the farms and the palm trees the farms don't have anything we lost everything on the farms here in the village as you see three hundred houses have been destroyed. i'm not going to build anything else because i had two houses in the shop everything is destroyed i don't have the means to rebuild i'll just try to rebuild one home and i probably can't even you know that. it is the first time in recorded history that mozambique has been hit by two cycles in one season. aid agencies have been working frantically to deal with the fallout from. now have even more work on their hands. german media are reporting the country's domestic spy agency says it's becoming increasingly difficult to monitor right wing extremists and hate groups confidential report by
1:09 am
a german intelligence official says far right extremists are becoming increasingly decentralized the report also says social media is playing an ever larger role in pushing people to the extreme right a little bit more about this i'm joined by the reporter erin tilton is the government going to have to worry about the contents of this report well it does seem that they are taking this report rather seriously you have to remember this it does come from germany's domestic intelligence agency in this is a report intended both for their higher ups and also members of the government so it does seem they are taking the potential threat of violent arctic stream is quite seriously in role as you were saying there the report is really focusing on is this kind of echo chamber effect that we're seen in extreme right wing groups where basically young men usually run thirty or find themselves a kind of a political echo chamber and it's driving them further to the right end of the spectrum or we're actually starting to see them becoming much more willing to commit violent acts and another part that was really highlighted about this report is the very nature of social media is making it much more difficult for german
1:10 am
investigators to follow their actions yet remember a lot of these groups are communicating on just kind of the local level with each other and are using the protected spaces that social media and messenger apps actually provide to communicate in a way that's not exactly viewable by german investigators. how man is that how this radicalized that it is different from previous right wing extremism well focusing in here in germany in the past a lot of the the the right wing extremist groups that were ready to commit violent acts were actually organized groups on the on the local and national level so we're talking about like skinheads a neo nazi group where the structures were known in a much larger level what this report is warning about is more individuals small groups little fractured groups or even lone wolf style attackers who are radical. as in independently online and don't really have connection to these to these larger more national international groups and because that they're kind of so granular at this level it's very very difficult for investigators to actually track
1:11 am
them down identify them before they commit an action or what can the government or the tech groups since it's all much of it's happening online do well that really kind of remains to be seen it doesn't seem like there are any easy answers here at least when it comes to the social media aspect they do it's very very difficult to actually get access to a lot is encrypted messenger apps i mean they are protected companies as well and many of them actually have their servers outside of germany or germany has very very tight laws when it comes to hate speech but a lot of these companies you know they have their servers in the united states which has a very very different perspective when it comes to free speech and what it also comes to actually getting people involved in these groups i mean germany has a long history of using informants in these neo nazi groups in order to track them down that's much more difficult because these groups are just the cut off from each other they don't have those connections that we've seen in the past so right now it doesn't really look like there are a lot of good answers available ok you know years or until thanks for that thank you. new report from the stockholm international peace research
