9:01 am
a motor sports legend nicky lauder will be buried today in his hometown of c.n.n. austria and increase death last week at the change of 70. plus nigerian president will have to do bihari will be sworn in for a 2nd today but many young nigerians remain unconvinced the 76 year old is the right choice to ask a correspondent spoke to some of them. and a deadly race to the world's highest mountain everest has claimed 11 lives so faults here tax cuts blame it on top of the crowding it was in the pool issuing a record number of climbing but it's. time i think it's mccain and thanks so much for joining us. on the french president and man you want to have clout. over who should take europe's top job merkel has
9:02 am
made it clear she favors a german candidate for the post of european commission president but mccall has called for the selection system to be changed it comes as government heads nice in brussels to discuss the block's leadership for the next 5 years. let's have a listen to what the 2 heads of state have to say after last night's talks. because the german government is committed to the principle of the need to come to that however the parties represented in the coalition have different views as to which candidate is best suited to this if everyone just peace with their preferred names because none of the groups are the majority on the limb and even if 2 of them work together they still have a majority we need 3 joins in 4 groups to do this sort of thing. so it's an obvious differences of opinion than for more on that i'm joined by our correspondent in brussels teri schultz hi terry now the european council is split into those those
9:03 am
defending the lead candidate system and there are those who are against it can you tell us a bit more about these 2 options sure of the european parliament elections and their fragmented results through the system into disarray it used to be that the lead candidate for the largest political group the european peoples party was basically a shoo in now that that party and the number 2 political group the socialists and democrats lost so many seats they're no longer guaranteed that their candidate will get in and that's bad news for the german candidate munford bever and you know it's been kind of funny that this system is called the spits and cut it out in german even in english but the results of the european parliament election have meant that is no longer the system that everybody accepts so is it now up to the european council president donald tusk to find some kind of compromise that suits both sides . yes that's to 6 job on every issue and this is bound to be
9:04 am
a big one for him because you not only have countries and political groups disagreeing over the system itself but then you go below that and they don't agree on candidates munford ever is by no means a unified choice you still have friends timmermans for the 2nd group who has a lot of popularity and you have much greater vestigal the 3rd largest political group the liberals who also has a lot of support so just has a big job ahead of them and they wanted to have it wrapped up by the next e.u. summit at the end of june it doesn't look like that's going to be possible now both total to a scout and president both said they wanted agenda balanced nomen need less to be used top jobs and we going to be seeing more women taking on key roles that you know we hear this every time the top jobs turn over young euchre also said he wanted more women and he ended up with a commission that has only one 3rd of female commissioners so they all say they're going to do this and we'll see if that happens a lot of it has to do with what nominees the member states put forward to brussels
9:05 am
you can't choose from a female candidate if you haven't been given them but margaret's investor has said that every country needs to propose to female commissioner candidates that would make a big difference and of course she has also been gaining a lot of popularity as a strong female candidate for president emmanuel klein says he wants vestibular to be the commission president that would make a big difference the last time we didn't have a female candidate running for president of the european commission so it remains to be seen whether they actually succeed in this but at least there's a lot of talk about it with to ask himself saying this is a priority teri schultz in brussels thanks so much. now for me to one legend that he louder will be buried today in his hometown of vienna austria he died last week at the age of 70 a 3 time world champion claimed his 1st title with ferrari in 1975 a horrific crash the german grown prayed the following year very nearly cost the austrian his life but loud it made
9:06 am
a remarkable recovery and he went on to win 2 more championships in 19771984 he was an iconic figure he retired in 1905 but remained active in formula one throughout his life. and tom dinoire is here from sports to tell us a little bit more tom thanks for joining us tell us what's happening today at the plant you know so today from st stephen's cathedral right in the heart of the you know there's going to be a memorial service for nikki lauder. a chance for fans and notables associates colleagues and friends of lauder to say their last goodbyes of course in attendance among others is lewis hamilton who dedicated his win on the weekend just gone at the monaco grand prix to niki lauda saying this was the hardest race i've ever had that was for you nicky your fighting spirit was right there with me every step of the way alongside lewis hamilton and of course plenty of other notables in
9:07 am
the world of formula one austrian president alexander vanderbilt is going to be attendance as well on those forts in asia following the memorial service in the morning there's then going to be a public mass followed by a private funeral later on for closure sosias family members etc of niki lauda. he's actually going to be buried in his ferrari racing overalls he doubted he was he was such a champion he was so admired let's talk about his legacy how will he be remembered well i mean of course in kind of very basic terms as one of the most successful drivers in the history of formula one very few people ever won as many championships or as many races as niki lauda did during his career but of course it was more than just you know his to disclose excesses that captured the public imagination. you touched on of course the miraculous recovery that niki lauda made after that horrific crash in nuremberg in 1986 he was read his last rights in hospital after that crash that's really how close it came to costing him his life
9:08 am
he only missed 2 races following that incident and the 3rd he was already back in the cockpit competing for the for the championship which he very nearly won he was described by his contemporary jackie stewart. as one of the best drivers of all time and of course also one of the most courageous. he remained present in formula one after his retirement as you mentioned and was instrumental in bringing lewis hamilton to the mercedes team which has been so dominant the past few years you know he also had a big hand in creating one of the most dominant champions of the modern era a true great school all right. thanks so much. what she did only knew still to come she was elected mayor of a turkish cissie was more than 50 percent of the vote but this ethnic kurdish politician has been prevented from taking office and she's not the only opposition politician in adams turkey to be kept out of power. or on that later but

9:15 am
a friend in nameplate for what should have been her new office. now it's here in the shop one of the few reminders that goujon catchments was recently elected mayor . by jury and president mohammed who bihari is set to be inaugurated for the 2nd time today but not all nigerians are happy about his reelection about half of registered voters are under the age of 35 and many young people are skeptical that this 76 year old president is the right man to revamp the economy he is in the capital of beirut jeff she spoke to young voters who see no reason to celebrate today's inauguration. these young men who want this cocktail bar and if the president were to stop by they would mix of very special drink for him. get him a strong drink so maybe you could resets. where you get
9:16 am
a strong drink you put you to sleep when you wake up maybe you is going to think about all these youths gave all their strong drink let's see what we could do for them. they feel haris doing way too little to empower the youth all of them have studied abroad back here they are often called front of the nigeria's makeshift infrastructure such as its regular power outages they must spend 200 dollars every month just to keep their drinks cool their youths are young vibrant we want to do something so if the government can give us. i think will be greater than anything i give you power in terms of electricity or power in terms of influence power in terms of electricity when we get electricity influence will come. and its infrastructure and how it relates to the business. hardly has promised all of that but it's hard to find someone who believes in his policies every area that
9:17 am
we have leaders of tomorrow but i'm not seeing anything good. you see the people there is leaving so the issue i feel that he should give we knew he would after a while i finally find a bihari supporter eager to join the festivities our own his president we need patience room was no beauty the saying is the saints but i don't see it but. for now. president mahmoud to worry president bihari lacks the support of a majority of the electorate the youth about half of the we just said voters are under $35.00 but only every 3rd of the electorate went out to vote at all a historic low which does not bode well for president biharis 2nd term. and i'm joined now by funny if i challenged his reporting from eagle square in a village i wept as an biharis inauguration will be taking place shortly hi funny
9:18 am
we just heard there in your report about voter apathy the many young nigerians who don't support the hari was turn out looking like that today. well the crowd is actually just gathering behind me but i'm not expecting a huge party for very official reasons the main celebrations of integration day have been shifted to june 12th when for the very 1st time the jury is going to celebrate democracy day own june 12th so far that they were celebrated today on may 29th so that's the official reason but then again if you talk to people as we have on the ground you get a sense from the use especially the majority of the electorate actually in nigeria why they're going to stay away from a celebration today here at eagle square and that is because simply they are disillusioned i mean let's just face the facts the unemployment has tripled since the beginning of the 1st term of president hu hari 4 years ago also there is another sad record nigeria has become the capital basically of poverty worldwide
9:19 am
and then again of course is a big challenge of security and instability so there's so many challenges that need to be tackled and simply the youth especially the use the future of this country doesn't feel that the efforts that fair made are enough to make sure that this country is going the right direction so hence it's going to be a very mixed celebration today a lot of reservation of skepticism on one side but then again also of course the people who are going to attend here say president who are is the main person he there's no alternative to him and they're going to celebrate that he's going to receive a 2nd chance to say so in office so how should he use the 2nd chance what does he need to focus on in his 2nd term. president who are actually just laid out and i think we might have some problems with the line to sunny such. ok we'll move on
9:20 am
to the to our next story it is the deadliest climbing season in years at the world's highest peak at least 11 people have died trying to get to the top of mt everest over the past few weeks now though the deaths are being blamed on bottlenecks caused by overcrowding on the mountain slopes that these authorities have handed out almost 400 climbing permits for this season alone about is more than ever before. they came for an adventure in the remotest place on earth they got queues carnage and tragedy. the man who filmed this long breathless crawl to the top of everest turned back fearing for his life it has become a death raised there because there was massive traffic jam and people are pushing themselves for not even care people of doing it they do it to try to summit and they instead of summiting they kill themselves and it's turned into
9:21 am
a bad thing and i think people should really look into it. the reason for the sneaking lines of mountaineers at the top of the world a record number of parent and a narrow window of good weather the delays made the already stream conditioned worse according to this player who has the scars to prove it. my you know if you look at it in experience climates don't even know how to time the oxygen masks around their face. these inexperienced climbers can create problems for the rest of the climbers. as far as death is concerned it's the climbers themselves who take the risk robin fisher is one of the 11 people to have died this season he shot this video describing the conditions as he set out for the summit. for 3.
9:22 am
but it is the death zone near the hillary state where the congestion is most dangerous to resume officials have promised to implement safety barriers but. the number of climbers who come to our mountains is actually quite low compared to other countries we're not going to fix or limit the number of climbers we're trying to get more tourists and climbers to come to nepal by giving them better facilities and safety we want to encourage them to come for both pleasure and fame within this . plea not operations gets underway on everest it's not just rubbish they're collecting for more bodies were plucked off the mountain another reminder that the pursuit of pleasure and fain can come at the greatest price. all right let's bring in any canadian filmmaker his climb mount everest several times now he joins us from the polls capital katmandu l.a. you were climbing everest just last week i believe for a film you're currently shooting tell us what's making it so much more dangerous
9:23 am
why a climb is dying. so for the very 1st time with my own eyes i've been on everest 8 times i've stood on the summit 3 times now for the very 1st time with my own eyes i saw the infamous queues you know that are making headlines right now and on our way from camp 3 to camp 4 we could already see that there were you know 40 or 50 climbers ahead of us and that evening there were over 250 climbers that reading to summit so the queues are obviously a huge issue you know the narrow weather window as mentioned earlier is also another issue then of course there's the grand issue of lack of experience on the mountain that's causing a lot of problems and many of these fatalities should the government simply be strict in the way it hands out climbing climbing permits. i believe so you know they should limit the number of permits china has led the way this year with their approach of limiting the number of permits i think the other thing that
9:24 am
would be very helpful would be you know creating a prerequisite of having summit in 1000 meter peak before you're seeing very inexperienced climbers you know there are actually some climbers on the mountain where everest was their 1st mountain that would be incredibly helpful the other thing as well is i mean i just think people need to take this more seriously you know we see these images on social media we see them in the media we see seemingly ordinary people standing on top of the world that is creating a culture of well i can if they can do it i can do it but then people are showing up they're trying to save money they're hiring irresponsible outfitters and those outfitters are also responsible for some of these fatalities as well as the climbers themselves said so essentially it's people overestimating their own abilities and a lack of understanding of of really what climbing mt everest means. so a lack of understanding but it's also a lack of support you know when you hire a local company and pay $25.00 to $35000.00 you're compromising quality you're not
9:25 am
getting adequate sherpa support you're not getting enough oxygen you not getting the right strategy or leadership to prepare you to go into the death zone to climb to 9000 meters above sea level and to understand exactly what you're getting yourself into and it also having the leadership to educate you on when enough is enough you know you see climbers that push themselves beyond the limit by some many people that were climbing up to the summit and they really should have been turned around i tried to coax people into turning around saying you know there's there's no shame you know and being humble and admitting defeat because your life legist not worth it yes you said yourself you've climbed everest several times just tell us your own experience what does it feel like if you get to the top of the top of every everest describe the thing to us. well in the past it's absolutely been. orating in 2013 i stood on top of the world we had the entire summit to ourselves this year as we approached the top you know one of the young ladies from the
9:26 am
documentary dream of everest that i was shooting she pulled her oxygen mask off her hairs for us and you know and she said to me you know where's the summit ilia and i pull my own off and i said do you not see the 60 people pop piled up on a rock so that was that was my experience it's exhilarating but this year it was quite complicated being up there because there were so many people and yes i cally in kathmandu thank you so much for speaking to us. a quick reminder of the top story that we're following for you today 7 top slot i'm french president in monumental knock on has coached over who should take the european union's top job the tensions calm as the 2 leaders meet with other e.u. heads of government in brussels to discuss the bloke's leadership for the next 5 years. you are watching news live from berlin coming up next is close up with a look at high tech ways to help police fight crime i'll be back with more news at the top of the al and don't forget you can get all the latest news and information
