9:02 am
palestinians says the twenty fourteen gaza war. that's a hospital in gaza palestinians mourn their dead. the the funerals were held for a pregnant woman and her fourteen month old niece both killed on saturday the girl's father blames israel. the children were playing and they were struck by a missile shot from an israeli drone. an israeli spokesman denied that the defense forces the i.d.f. were involved and said the palestinians themselves were responsible. for the unfortunate deaths of that woman and the baby were not a result of ideas with rather a result of the use of weapons by terrorist organizations in that area in the southern gaza strip. israel says it's targeting what it calls terror elements in
9:03 am
the gaza strip pinpointing farm buildings cars. and high rise buildings in gaza city. the israeli government insists the strikes are in response to hamas and islamic jihad foreign more than six hundred rockets across the border into southern israel this weekend many were intercepted while still airborne but some landed in residential areas destroying homes injuring and killing civilians hastily declared in the early hours of the morning the latest ceasefire has a verted an all out war but with tensions high it won't take much for the violence to flare up again. let's bring in correspondent tanya kramer who has the latest from jerusalem so tanya we've heard that this cease fire has been in effect for a few hours now how is it holding up so far. well it appears to be holding since the early morning hours there have been no a rockets being
9:04 am
fired into southern israel from gaza and also there have been no more israeli airstrikes on gaza a palestinian media have reported that as of four thirty am this cease fire has gone into effect a cease fire the house being a brokered this time again in mediated by egypt with the help of qatar and the united nations. and tania we know that one of the main sticking points one of the things that really sparked this most recent conflict was on the palestinian officials in gaza were saying that israel was not taking steps to ease its blockade under promised ceasefire deals of the past how likely is it that now we will see some steps to resolve this. well it's all about the implementation as you said hamas and islamic jihad and other militant groups in gaza they have accused israel of failing to implement understandings that have been
9:05 am
reached during the last time there was an escalation and was in late march and also at earlier times we've seen many of those escalations flaring up over the past year and we understand that this time also. the ceasefire or calm is based on those understanding said have included previously the lifting of some of the restrictions on gaza like expanding the fishing zone. getting in aid money from qatar the flow of more electricity into gaza now it's really all about this implementation but it also shows that without a longer term plan no solution political solution for the gaza strip which has been under blockade and has been under closer for over ten years now it's going to be highly likely that we see possibly other times of escalation tanya given the tenuous situation there right now what is the mood.
9:06 am
well i think people on both sides are waiting to see. you know bit more about the understandings being reached i think in gaza there is a sense of relief it's also the first day of ramadan today it has been very exhausting. and people really would like to see that some of those restrictions being lifted now in the south of israel as well so many barrages of rockets have been. known against communities their people have been confined to the house or to the safe rooms but they also would probably like to see what is the result of all of this is just a period of calm and waiting for another escalation or will there be some solution at the end tanya cramer in jerusalem thank you tanya
9:07 am
now at least forty one people were killed when a russian plane burst into flames during an emergency landing at moscow's sheremetyevo airport the aeroflot airliner was flying to the northern city of more months when the pilot reported technical problems and turned back. flame hurtling along the runway trailed by a plume of smoke travel such as i want to watch and dread the flight as you want for nine to solo comes to a halt. most of those who had boarded the flight only hours earlier did not manage to escape the flames. as a lucky survive a stock a safety fire trucks rushed towards the bunning hall. several passengers were taken to hospital and well did the new tests phone that was the most the severity of the injuries comes from smoke inhalation and burns. a car we need them for before getting in many other people has injuries to their bodies and
9:08 am
to nick's. the interesting to reassure cool. it's unclear why the aircraft the russian built sukhoi superjet one hundred ten back about thirty minutes into its flight the cause of the fire is also not known russian media reports that the plane bounce of atomic as a pilot attempted to land taken out in the fuel tanks the disaster also raises questions of those who put it one hundred since one crashed in indonesia and twenty twelve deaths in several complaints about technical flaws in the aircraft. as a nation emerges from its grief the call for answers will grow louder of get more now we're joined by correspondent emily sure went who has the view from moscow so emily what are you hearing from investigators about the cause of this accident. well the investigative committee has been rather careful about what information
9:09 am
they've been releasing they haven't actually stated in the fischel reason for the crash yet they've said that they will only do that after a thorough investigation they are investigating what happened as a violation of safety rules what we do know is that the plane was flying from moscow to more money and that the pilot sent a distress signal shortly after takeoff now itself is actually saying that the plane had to return to specify technical reasons they say that the fire broke out after landing now there are conflicting versions about whether the fire actually broke off. during the flight or after landing from videos it does certainly look like the fire broke out after landing but pilots the pilots from the plane have been reporting that the plane may have been hit by lightning that could have caused the fire or that it could have also caused technical issues other sources
9:10 am
say that the plane. broke out in flames when it hit the landing strip so really not much official information not much information lots of different versions being discussed so we'll have to wait and see to get more clarity on what they are really happened what the reasons for this accident there also seems to be emily a bit of a debate about the emergency response what more can you tell us about the. when it comes to the emergency response people have been discussing on social media one thing that people have been discussing is why it took so long for the blaze to be put out as some eyewitnesses said it did and one report in the media says that perhaps. airport used its own fire brigades rather than relying on civilian fire brigades who were not let on to the airport territory and that that
9:11 am
could have been a reason for the slow response but again this is not confirmed another thing that people are discussing is the evacuation of passengers an aeroflot representative said that passengers were were actually evacuated within fifty five seconds the norm there he said was ninety seconds so a rather quick evacuation but media sources are citing. other sources so again not very confirmed but who are who are saying that actually hassinger panicked and they tried to get their luggage their hand luggage out of the storage compartments and that actually slowed the evacuation of passengers and with forty one people dead in this instance the search for answers will certainly continue i will be sure when with the view from moscow thank you. let's get a quick check now of some other stories making news around the world white house national security advisor john bolton says that he the u.s.

9:13 am
took part in a ceremonial procession to celebrate the succession to the for. the first shares on china's stock markets have plummeted after u.s. president donald trump threw a wrench in the ongoing trade talks he's threatening additional tariffs on chinese imports only days before a chinese delegation is expected in washington for a possibly final round of negotiations the chinese vice premier says that he will still travel to the united states but will shorten his trip by one day. many had believed the trade dispute could soon be ended when negotiators met in beijing last week there had been hope for a quick settlement it was believed things were going well and then u.s. president donald trump made an announcement on twitter. for ten months china has been paying tariffs to the usa of twenty five percent on fifty billion dollars of high tech and ten percent on two hundred billion dollars of other goods these
9:14 am
payments are partially responsible for our great economic results the ten percent will go up to twenty five percent on friday. the tariffs are indeed a lucrative revenue source for the u.s. and october twenty eighth seen income from tariffs rose by about forty percent to five point five billion dollars year on year according to the new york times this week a high ranking chinese trade delegation is scheduled to visit the u.s. following trump's trade announcement a media report has said that the chinese side is considering canceling the talks. let's break this down now with steven gerrard's lee who joins us from business so making this threat now remember sarah that as these negotiations with china have been going on here the u.s. has been holding out two hundred billion dollars in goods rising raising the terrace from ten percent to twenty five percent that be a huge blow to the chinese so first off this is pressure tactic writes. the reason
9:15 am
for that of course we know that trump has been very impatient with the pace of these negotiations and probably impatient over the fact that they won't contain the full scope of what he would like them to contain there's a lot going on he talks about the trade gap he talks about also intellectual property and chinese respecting western intellectual property in talk about things such as cyber theft as well so containing all of these in one hundred negotiations has proven very very difficult is proving very very awkward and so these negotiations have been kicked out further and further and another reason that's important to note is that the u.s. economy is doing so well and there is such a positive jobs report last week that we should be surprised to see this coming now he might feel that he has the leverage to really ratchet up the pressure a bit more and on the back of that positive news on the u.s. economy and interest has made the claim in that regard saying that you know that. that is in part due to these tariffs on chinese goods what are we to make of that claim is the right right there's no there's nothing to suggest that that's the case i mean these tariffs are bringing in money to u.s.
9:16 am
government coffers in the matter of tens of billions of dollars that's really in the grand scheme of things not that much the u.s. economy isn't really profiting off of the back the back of this to such an extent that it's furthering the boom boom has been years in the making but it's also been sort of turbo charged by trump's tax cut in two thousand and seventeen by his deregulation and by a number of factors that we're still trying to figure out but the likelihood that these tariffs are two are turbo charging it very unlikely in fact studies have shown the opposite that it's affecting. affecting consumers that they're the ones who are paying for this and the economy might be doing better actually without them and how are the markets responding. shattering to them especially the asian markets because the chinese economy as we know is already very weak that's another form of leverage that trump is seeing and they see this is further bad news for the chinese chinese markets and so in shanghai down almost five percent in hong kong it's also down and delta jones industrial futures also down so we'll see what trading does in the u.s. on monday as well and how they respond a lot of attention on these u.s. china trade talks it's going to cause markets ripple no doubt on the story for us
9:17 am
you can barely thank you sure. the second day of thailand's three day coronation ceremony has come to an end after a spectacular procession through bangkok's old town hundreds of thousands turned out to see the new king and for royalists the ceremony has been a long time coming thailand's last coronation was almost seventy years ago when the new king's father ascend to the throne. new thai king now have a juror along corn made his first public appearance in saturday's coronation in grand style. this spectacular royal procession took a seven kilometer route through bangkok's old town. the king was accompanied by over one thousand soldiers and a one hundred nine member marching band playing tunes written by thailand's beloved former king bhumibol. some two hundred thousand
9:18 am
onlookers clad in yellow a color associated with the thai royal family lined the streets many turned out hours before the event started braving the summer heat to show their support for the new monarch a they did love him to fly to his table just like that his father used to do silvio very happy. the nearly seven hour long procession continued into the night with stops at three different temples along the way and at each stop more adoring supporters waiting to catch a glimpse or at least a photo of their new king. and. the king turned to my side and i was shouting long live the king while waving flags and fairy grateful believe me when i had to buy it i can't explain what i'm feeling but i'm very excited and grateful to be here. today why didn't you do.
9:19 am
the elaborate three day coronation ceremony is expected to cost over thirty million dollars but most in attendance don't seem bothered it is after all the country's first coronation in sixty nine years and the new king is one of the world's richest monarchs with assets estimated in the billions of dollars. now around the globe the race is on right now to roll out five g. mobile networks but as in other aspects of communication technology germany is lagging behind. as a graph shows a quarter of germany still doesn't even have access to three d. network technology ranking the country thirtieth in the world now compare that south korea and the united states where coverage is almost one hundred percent it's a problem that people here are increasingly aware of so when our correspondent kate brady set off to find out what issues germans are concerned with the most at the moment she travel to a network dead zone. for the first leg of my journey i'm leaving
9:20 am
behind for villa but essen in the german countryside. once a world leader in industry an innovation when it comes to digitalize ation germany is lagging far behind. despite the impending arrival of five technology hearings having me for some parts of the country especially in the countryside people are still dreaming of networks and a reliable internet connection let's not forget it wasn't so long ago that the japanese chancellor angela merkel herself was describing the internet as new territory. agriculture is just one industry feeling the effects of germany's digital shortcomings like air envelops where network dead zones are a common occurrence for farmers like olaf's pick. by using g.p.s. signals the structure has the capacity to drive itself autonomously and cover the
9:21 am
exact same route and the exact same tracks taken on previous days. because the mob you appear. here shows how good reception is you have to imagine it's like when you get l t three g. on your phone the higher these numbers become the worse the reception gets right now as we stand we can work with one centimeter accuracy into that are going to cut our. butts. when the signal fails things go a little off plan and the tractors wheels their off course. which means wasted resources and the expenditure for farmers. what's most important here for these farmers is per se asian and making sure that they can farm with exact signals and making sure that these signals are even available in the first place so that they can work more precisely and efficiently to make sure that they don't waste any use
9:22 am
of the land. farm owner flyhalf on vice is holding the german government to its pledge of nationwide high speed internet by twenty twenty five and five g. mobile internet you put it it was. here mr standish the standards across the board network operators who can provide five g. standards must be obliged to make this internet connection available not only in the densely populated high revenue regions but also in the countryside where the turnover is low. probably this movie ok story. the german government has now promised plenty of measures to at least get germany on the way when it comes to digitalize ation but now the question is whether those measures can really be implemented in time to make sure that germany has any chance at all of becoming a digital tech giant. brady you saw her there she is now with
9:23 am
us here in the studio to talk a little bit more about this and kate you know we just have to tell our viewers that a couple of months ago germany's research minister said the following five g. is not necessarily at every can it turns out though that the people in those areas they really took that quite differently than perhaps it was intended phyllis and yet they really are frustrated and the two guys i spoke to there in the report that you've just seen actually quoted germany's research minister themselves as well and this is something that really struck them and i. think that is still quite a blog a attitude not only from some politicians but also from some of the germans in different parts of germany who aren't experiencing this lack of network every day of course this report here that i followed was actually just focusing on agriculture but also this affects their entire lives when what about when an emergency doctor doesn't have a signal on my phone so that they can take an emergency call for example to really
9:24 am
get into every part of their everyday lives especially in rural germany and it's just one of the many issues actually that is concerning germans right now we know that you're actually doing a series on that particular topic so what else is on the agenda exactly they'll be running every day this week so we saw digitalisation today tomorrow we've got japanese housing crisis demographic change the fact that germany is becoming older and that's affecting the workforce especially and also climate change and that series how concerned do voters seem about these issues and especially in these towns that you visited i mean you visited a lot of small towns in the country didn't you exactly and it was not only issues that are in the countryside but these are issues a concern in all of germany and i think that's what's quite unique about these issues that it isn't something that's. individual to just one specific group of people or one specific place you know even here in the german capital in berlin and even here for take the example of. coverage today you know you can be in the center
9:25 am
of the german capital and not have any internet connection of any phone connection and this is something that you hear from voices when you ask if they're concerned they are concerned because they keep hearing these promises from politicians and now they want to see some action taken though and of course we could see the repercussions of that playing out later this year we have some important state elections coming up in germany as well and germans really are becoming frustrated especially at the government that we currently have here the grand coalition between the conservatives and the social democrats and these really are issues that are going to shape germany's future ok so let's look forward to kate brady thank you so much. and we're heading out to the bun this latest starting with an extraordinary matches to leverkusen over around frankfurt six to one with all of the goals coming in the first half the result puts leverkusen level with fourth place frankfurt and the battle for the final spot in next season's champions league
9:26 am
tournament were both sides have just two games left. leverkusen wasted little time opening the scoring in their clash for europe against frankfurt. one nil from chi however it's after just two minutes. the hosts kept up the torrid pace with you me and grant finishing up a neat bit of team play to double the lead a lead in minutes later. i trained pert responded immediately with the only thing todd deflecting for the cost of his effort into the net to make it a game. that was until leverkusen open the floodgates ten minutes later lucas a lhari zero knocked in for three was charles of a nice powered pass to listless frankfurt defense to make it four one eyed. and ilario tapped in for five while i.
9:27 am
taking a cue from the leverkusen attack frankfurt defender martin had to take inexpressibly had to the ball into his own now six one after just thirty six minutes played. amazingly and the score held a deafening statement in the fight for the top four from leverkusen and a crushing defeat for frankfurt. well up next tomorrow today of the science magazine you're watching t.v. news from berlin don't forget you hear all of the latest news and information around the clock on our website you the few dot com and all of us and social media thanks for watching.
