9:07 pm
the assault on nature by humans has reached every corner of our planet and species are now disappearing tens to hundreds of times faster than jaring the last ten million years. are good to a poor mouse and slipping down other to more than human away train us left on the planet our need for ever more food and energy of the main drivers of this destruction and now according to the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of how human well being is dependent on the natural world the assault on the environment is threatening our very existence if we cannot hold climate change or hold the loss of biodiversity we will threaten through security we will threaten water security we will threaten human health and therefore i think governments are now recognizing if they don't start to deal with climate change of biodiversity
9:08 pm
they can meet there are elements of human well being they're absolutely fundamental we've changed the way we use three quarters of our land since pre-industrial times we're overfishing around a third of our marine stocks we're dumping millions of tons of waste into the world's waters and global warming is already impacting the habitats of half of our mammals so nothing less than an overhaul of economic systems and a total shift in political and social mindsets will stop any of this say the report's authors business as usual is a disaster we're going to continue to trade clive we're going to continue to lose by the visit but we can either have a more sustainable future if we choose the right policies and the right technologies if we change our behavior we have have a much more sustainable future for our children and grandchildren. the publication
9:09 pm
coincides with a growing global awareness of the impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss and it helps to tap into this with some key message is we haven't lost the battle yet we can be part of the solution and most importantly nature is essential for human existence. or palestinian leaders in gaza have agreed to a cease fire with israel it ends two days of violence the worst violence since the war back in two thousand and fourteen israel has made no official comment on the ceasefire which is common practice but its military has allowed schools and roads in southern israel to reopen though the violence began on saturday with rocket fire from militants in gaza prompting return strikes by israel at least twenty five palestinians and four israelis have been killed. for no the violence is over but this in gaza this is little comfort among the rubble. if you don't sort of
9:10 pm
. the neighbors was screaming leave quickly that we're going to bomb the building and destroy it. we took the children and we were fried we went to the neighbors in what we were wearing and then they hit the building with three warning rockets it was bombed and destroyed completely our house and all the other apartments are damaged. today marks the start of the muslim holy month of ramadan palestinians are hoping the ceasefire will hold. four thirty am they now it's to tristan i hope that the situation will calm down since then there has been no shelling for now it's calm. but it's a fragile peace people in stored in israel affected by the latest violence a glance of the break in the fighting but angry at what they see is how must stick taking turns. i welcome the cease fire but again the masses set
9:11 pm
the tone i don't like it i want the state of israel to set the tone and decide what to do i don't want a terrorist organization to decide what to do for the state of israel who has such a strong army. or quarter which was in a month in two weeks in a month and a half it will repeat itself again and will have achieved nothing i think the state of israel needs to strike them very very hard so they learned their lesson in new york the palestinian ambassador to the united nations welcomed the cease fire and said that he hoped it would hold what a lot of people need is not more violence and attacks against them particularly those in gaza there have been living a miserable life as a result of the blockade for more than twelve years what they need is lifting the blockade what they need is access and movement in and outside.
9:12 pm
to live as normally as possible and what they need is protection the rocket attacks and strikes over the weekend of the worst recent flare up in violence between the two sides that have been to war three times since two thousand and seven those who survived can only hope the current truce marks a return to a more peaceful existence. and for more now or you're joined by your own he's a journalist in tel aviv good evening to you gil so is that what we're looking at tonight is a fragile cease fire that is holding well for the time being it's holding but no one can be sure how long this will last the army has already warned the government that it's years it could even break down within a couple of days that within a week or two or it could break out in a month or a month and a half but what everyone on both sides seems to be certain is that this is no long term solution this is just an interim a brief rest fight before a violence takes up again i mean the violence that we saw this weekend indeed this
9:13 pm
was some of the fiercest violence that we've seen in in what five years i mean people were talking about the conditions of war what we saw similar to what we saw in two thousand and fourteen what made the the palestinians and the israelis pull back from the brink do you know. well in the end both sides don't want war but they want the advantages that. being the victory no war it could bring with it but they don't want to pay the price that a war would exact from both sides so hamas is really engaging in a very dangerous game of brinkmanship trying to eek exact concessions from israel's prime minister benjamin and now knowing with fully well that netanyahu is not interested in any escalation right now especially not before the european song contest live you're into that which is a gift off of a decade for israel's p.r. in terms of tourism in terms of its international standing and that when it is no
9:14 pm
one's the celebrations to be disrupted especially not by by hamas hamas was really playing on this was playing out at this is a very inconvenient time for israel to be engaged in a skill ation in trying to exact new concessions from it now hamas got some concessions but they will not keep hamas over the water that want to help hamas solve the dire economic problems of the gaza strip so within a very short period of time we'll see hamas and god in the gaza strip with its back up to the wall again and trying to exact new concessions from israel which israel after the e.s.c. after the your vision song contest will not be willing to give and that's why prime minister that's are now ready said that this this engagement with hamas is not ended it will just it will go on in the future it will be interesting to see how this cease fire holds between now and the european song contest it starts in less than ten days there in israel feel your will in tel aviv with the latest tonight thank you aviation investigators are examining the voice and data recorders of
9:15 pm
a russian airplane that made an emergency landing in moscow yesterday at least forty one people died when the plane crash landed at moscow's main airport you know the aeroflot plane was flying to the northern city of we're months where when the pilot reported technical problems and then trying to turn back. little is left of the sukhoi superjet one hundred it seems incredible that any of its seventy eight passengers might have to live forty one people died as the plane made a hot emergency landing at a moscow airport some passengers documented the dramatic touchdown and the terror of those inside the sukhoi as flames engulf the cabin they survivors have an incredible story to tell they made it out of those flames their accounts we crucial to confirming whether the pilots version of why the plane crashed is accurate. he blamed lightning as the thirty's investigation continues the transport minister has
9:16 pm
ruled out grounding the sukhoi superjet and yes no it has no reason to not thank you. but the sukhoi was manufactured by state on company so it has been under sanctions and that makes ordering replacement parts difficult. technical malfunction is one of the most likely reasons for the crash and if that's so then this plane should be grounded. airflow twist accident in a decade. it is left confidence in the russian flag area battered and many travelers even more worried about safety in the country's aviation industry. our next report tonight is the first in a new series looking at the big issues concerning the german public and the first of those is digital technology now as the world gears up to install fifth generation mobile networks for five g.
9:17 pm
some parts of germany believe it or not are still struggling with versions a quarter of the country does not even have access to three g. network technology believe it or not that is true that puts the country thirtieth in the world in terms of connectivity and compare that to south korea and the united states where coverage is at almost one hundred percent d w correspondent kate brady began her journey to gauge the german public's mood in a network deadzone she found out how important it is for rural communities to get and to stay connected. for the first leg of my journey i'm leaving behind lin philip essen in the german countryside. once a world leader in industry an innovation when it comes to digitalize ation germany is lacking fall behind. despite the impending arrival of five technology hearings having me for some parts of the country especially in the
9:18 pm
countryside people are still dreaming of networks and a reliable internet connection and let's not forget it wasn't so long ago that the german chancellor. was describing the internet as new territory. agriculture is just one industry feeling the effects of germany's digital shortcomings like ehrenfeld where network dead zones are a common occurrence for farmers like pick. by using g.p.s. signals the structure has the capacity to drive itself autonomous the uncover the exact same route and the exact same tracks taken on previous days. period and would say this value here shows how good reception is you have to imagine it's like when you get three g. your on your phone the higher these numbers become the worse the reception gets
9:19 pm
right now as we stand we can work with one centimeter accuracy into the dog noise. but when the signal fails things go a little off plan and the tractors wheels tear off course. which means wasted resources and expenditure for farmers. was most important here for these farmers is persuasion 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 of the land. farm owner ben had 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 the political standards. here should all politicians mr standish these standards across the board network operators who can provide five g.
9:20 pm
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. 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. tenses oh of becoming a digital tech giant. and my colleague. knew she could drive a truck through she's come down from the farm but if you didn't steve you're good to see you ok let's talk about these dead zones just a couple months ago germany's science education minister said and i'm quoting here foreign g. is not necessary at every milk here. but it turns out people that you've talked to
9:21 pm
they see things a lot differently don't they really do and they see report here that we just saw is really just a snapshot of life out there and. the owner i have gone by she was telling me as well how he just to go and download a normal word document that he sent he has to go into the local town just to go and download that way he knows that as an internet connection so when you're trying to run a business of course this has huge implications it makes everything run twice as slowly as it might have already done anyway out in in a rural area but this really is affecting as well not only rural parts of germany but this is something that's a common occurrence here in the german capital as well this really is a nationwide issue you can be in the center of the german capital and suddenly you're in a dead zone and you have no connection that we've all experienced that you were this was the first part of your series where you're looking at issues that germans or conservative values been traveling around the country what other topics are you
9:22 pm
going to be talking about so today we focus on digitalisation tomorrow we've got germany's housing crisis coming up we'll also be looking at demographic change in the sense of germany's ageing population which of course is causing issues in terms of skilled labor especially and also the issue of climate change and it's interesting as well having visited four different locations and japanese well to see exactly how intertwined all of these. issues are and so these are certainly big issues now but something as well that's going to shape germany in the coming years as well what are the issues that people seem to be most concerned about i think it's the idea of germany keeping up with the rest of the world is really quite interesting there was something that you heard or that i heard sorry along the way was always this comparison with the european countries especially in france it's like this in the u.k.
9:23 pm
it's like this in you know in eastern european countries they have better internet as well and this comparison and the argument i have quite a lot regardless of whether it was about the internet connections or the housing prices that germany is europe's biggest economy why are we not doing better these issues and why only falling so fall behind and so there is certainly some frustration right now at the german government they blame anyone who would be told you would be filled was responsible for fully beholding a lot of it i mean the the finger was always pointed towards the government but not necessarily the grand coalition that we have right now between the conservatives in the social democrats of course all of these issues have been a very long time coming there's some issues here that you can trace right back to the fall of the wall thirty years ago particularly when it comes to demographic change which will be looking at later in the in the week particularly in places which are in former east germany of course after the wall fell we saw droves of
9:24 pm
people leave and not many people returning home said that is changing very slowly over time but this is going to be a real test is to see if germany can can keep up with other world leading economic powers but also in the meantime it's going to have to play a real big game of catch of those well whether that's in the labor market or in digitalization and you know. what surprised you most. we traveled around the country talking to people. i don't know if it was so much a surprise as a confirmation of how as i mentioned all of these topics a very intertwined and i think that's going to be interesting to see how the government reacts to that as well as to see how we might see some cross ministerial when it comes to budgets of course you know it as i mentioned i.o.c. and not many young people returning to the rural areas but we know when they've got no internet connection as soon as they leave the city if they were that there you
9:25 pm
see where they go back to the city as well. thank you very much look forward to your next installment they are let's talk about the baby now britain's duchess of sussex make a mark on she's given birth to her first child the baby boy whose name has not yet been announced is in line to the british throne they could gave birth in the early hours of monday morning delighting her husband prince harry in the hands of the british monarch. just before five thirty in the morning local time meghan markle gave birth to a healthy baby boy i was. sounds of well wishers gathered outside the castle a euphoric prince harry spoke to reporters in the afternoon and they're doing the morsel for the baby boy. i did this morning for a healthy boy. mother and baby a three pretty well as being the most amazing it's been because i can ever possibly
