this is deja vu news live from berlin in spain a victory for socialists in the general election now they face tough choices prime minister pedro sanchez his party sales all sort of movements already that means difficult coalition talks right ahead for the latest from madrid. also coming up the heady days of the people's authorising in sudan. walking around you can feel the pride they have not only in reclaiming public space but also their freedom to gatherings like this would not have been possible under the old regime. as the

protests take on a festive era we need a photographer committed to capturing the revolution from start to send. torrential rains and flooding hit mozambique just days after cycle ten and as floodwaters claimed more lives many areas are cut off from rescue teams. and a fresh voice for turkey international broadcasters including d.w.p. respond to the government's crackdown on independent media with the launch of a new you tube channel. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us spain's national election is over but a period of political uncertainty has just begun the socialist party has won the most votes but with just twenty nine percent they are well short of a parliamentary majority prime minister pedro sanchez must now form a coalition government
4:02 pm
a process that could take weeks if not months the election also saw a far right party enter parliament for the first time since the end of military rule one thousand nine hundred seventy five the vox party won ten percent of the vote. the reality sinks in an election that leaves no party in power many in spain were relieved however that the far right had not done even better than it did at the polls. but i mean as big as hopeful for me i think it's a good result and sincerely i didn't expect it i thought the right wing was going to win so it's cool for me. but i mean. by thing we think that the socialist victory is good and now there is hope that the bad guys don't win. the socialist party leader pederast sanchez had explicitly pitched his party to voters as the best way to stop the far right. the spaniards have sent a very clear message to europe and to the world it is possible to win the against
4:03 pm
reactionaries and authoritarianism with progressive proposals. but sanchez faces an uphill battle forming a ruling coalition the far right party vox may not have won but it still had a record night this election marks the first time a far right party has gained seats in the spanish parliament since the days of general franco. restore so no three c.p.o. this is only the beginning you know more so not a complete told you i aim was to reach out and that's exactly what we have done you know that you know novels that if we have a voice in parliament we can now say loud and clear to the entire country that folks has come to stay in the mainstream conservative people's party suffered big losses it was their worst election to date a sign that the polarization that has affected politics across europe has come to spain possibly for a long time to come. let's bring in our correspondent lisa lewis is
4:04 pm
standing by for us in madrid hi lisa says we heard there the socialists are claiming victory with iran twenty nine percent of the vote now they have to. form a government so where do things go from here. well it's going to be a bit complicated for them but they have several possibilities they could for example team up with the far left and he does put demos but then would have to bring in other smaller parties such as for example the catalan separatists or the basque separatist parties. come to get a majority in parliament another option would be to team up with the market liberal see that there are no us that's easy when it comes to the numbers because the two parties together would have a majority in parliament however when it comes to the ideology that might be a bit more complicated because during the campaign they were very much on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum so they would have to find a way to talk to each other and come to an agreement again the third possibility
4:05 pm
would be that the p.c.'s the socialist party would govern on its own as a minority government probably not the best option for them but they're not excluding that option either listen let's talk about another side of the political spectrum there was a breakthrough for the far right party vox party they're entering parliament for the first time since the one nine hundred eighty s. how will they influence politics in spain absolute well it's been a political earthquake that they end polman for the first time as he said since the end of the dictatorship and it will have its impact they don't have that many seats a bit more than twenty and will not be able to block any major loss of that but they will certainly influence the political debate just like the half during the campaign which was at times very tense and very tough and spain. what about the conservatives lisa we saw that they suffered their worst ever national result is
4:06 pm
that really another sign that the political center in spain is eroding. absolutely i mean the popular the people's party already moved quite far to the right during the election campaign there tried to grab from the far right vox party and now obviously they will have to do some serious soul searching because you know see that and those the other market liberal party they gained really quite got share of the vote for them and the people's party plummeted so now is the question will this trend continue will the people's party be able to stop the trend or will see that arnold's become the number one party on the right so certainly interesting times ahead here in spain our correspondent lisa lewis reporting from madrid thank you lisa. sudanese protesters have welcomed a breakthrough in talks with the army leaders they've agreed to form a joint council to pave the way for civilian rule sudan's longtime president omar al bashir was ousted by the military earlier this month after

4:08 pm
a microcosm of what the people here want their student to be walking around you can feel the pride they have not only in reclaiming public space but also their freedom gatherings like this would not have been possible under the old regime. a larger art movement has emerged from the uprising even this billboard has taken on new meaning protesters have hung clothing in honor of military personnel who disobeyed orders and refused to open fire at them and there are. some it says his photography not only documents the revolution it is also a way to help the people who need it. this picture shows a man waving a flag as he is being loaded on to the back of a truck. i will be using him and punching him so that he put the flag down and see saddam holding up the flag card so. you know that's a picture help to get this man released because it spread so much so they were able
4:09 pm
to locate him and have him freed. for passers by mohammed's work reflect a turning point for sudan and its people. i feel loved when i see the details of these pictures. these pictures are an expression of the bravery the strength and the patriotism of people who have overcome thirty years of oppression under a corrupt regime. to display shows that sudan has a lot of artists and people with many talents. to decide you found freedom is very fragile and there are a lot of work needs to be done for the spirit of the state and to be made a political reality and we learned as a people that we can be united and we can be one hand in this transitional period we've the sudanese people have to accept each other. does not know what exactly the future holds for sudan but he is determined to bear witness to it

4:16 pm
face of growing global tensions many countries are arming themselves more than ever . between nine hundred ninety eight and twenty eighteen worldwide defense spending rose almost continuously with one plateau to nearly two trillion dollars a year in twenty eighteen a sharp increase over twenty seventeen. the u.s. is by far the biggest spender on weapons and it shows no sign of changing course in twenty eighteen washington increased its military spending for the first time in seven years. china has the second largest defense budget which it also boosted in twenty eighteen saudi arabia a traditionally well armed country with the third largest budget reduced its spending india and france increase their defense budgets last year as did russia.
4:17 pm
major world powers china and india have outpaced russia in their defense spending which is why the asia pacific region is sent to be arming itself by contrast african countries spending on weapons has declined. eastern europe and parts of the middle east have also reduced their defense budgets according to available data. but that has no bearing on the overall trend for many countries the requirements for security have never been higher. the middle east is a leading destination for foreign labor from africa and asia but domestic workers often find themselves trapped in a system where they need their employers to sponsor them in order to get legal residency that leaves workers at the mercy of employers and according to amnesty international at increased risk of abuse it has called for an end to these rules. the cafe list system essentially binds migrant workers to their employer from the
4:18 pm
moment they enter the country it grants employers wide ranging powers facilitates forced labor and leaves workers vulnerable to abuse and exploitation if you look at me in lebannon there are more than two hundred fifty thousand foreign workers coming from asian and african countries to work in homes loaded i mean these workers are exempt from the normal labor laws because they are subject to the cut filesystem whose is when you don't make that feed amnesty international says the lebanese authorities make little effort to bring abusive employers to account workers can be arrested and deported if their employer reports the most having absconded from their job even if they're fleeing abuse passport confiscation is common practice making it even more difficult for migrant workers to escape exploitative labor conditions and it was a year they treat us like flavor first of all with the coffee filesystem the employer can control us in whichever way they want to because our employer can send
