8:14 am
conditioner done but i would. run the tool and us cremates are now back home and they've taken photos and videos to document their experience experts say the fishing industry is riddled with forced labor and it predominantly targets poor workers from southeast asia and. once on board there is no way out for the men and they often mercilessly exploited. children and us cremates say thousands of dollars in unpaid wages. we're going to go what i worked for a way for my family so they could be proud of me when i returned home but the reality was different it's like a muscle of our company when i asked the recruitment company for our rights they said you're a stupid idiot we just want to ask for our rights after working for 7 months when about how many. numerous n.g.o.s both local and international have run the alarm
8:15 am

8:16 am
party and thus prime minister the contest has been dominated by britain's efforts to leave the european union of course the bookmakers favorite in this contest is boris johnson the former foreign minister was the face of the leave campaign if he becomes prime minister he says he will take the country out of the e.u. on october 31st deal or no deal another hotly tipped contender is environment minister michael go he was a high profile leave campaigner and self in 2016 but he has since backed theresa may is brags that strategy and believes he will be able to unite the troubled tory it's then there is dominic rob mays former breaks it minister he says he will broker quote a fairer deal with the e.u. including renegotiating the northern ireland border issue and there's jeremy hunt britain's current foreign minister is regarded as even tempered and competent but
8:17 am
some feel he may lack the wider appeal of the other candidates well for more. let's bring in charlotte potts who is enjoy. watching all of this charlotte good to see you boris johnson the bookkeepers favorite the book keepers think it really is going to be the man but given all the controversy that boris johnson has generated over the years can he really become prime minister of the u.k. . well the conservative leadership race is known to be quite unpredictable things can change in the next couple of weeks but s. things stand right now his chances are very very good most papers make their headlines about this man this morning boris johnson former foreign secretary former mayor of london he has the hardline us within the tory party behind him they believe that he can see through but he also has quite
8:18 am
a few moderates behind him because they believe he is charismatic enough to for example win a general election if that should come up so charisma on the one hand on the other hand is very popular with leaf voters in the country and people believe that the tory party believes that he can he is the one that can see it through finally. tenders for the conservative leadership and to become prime minister not all of the men it must be said who is in the best position to provide a credible challenge to boris johnson. well the front runner as men we have to say that michael gove is one of them and vironment secretary he had a bit of a scandal over the weekend though because he admitted that he took cocaine an illegal drug in the u.k. of course over 20 years ago and has received a lot of criticism for that then we have jeremy hunt the current foreign secretary
8:19 am
here in the u.k. he has received prominent endorsements and we really have to say this leadership race is all about. all of the candidates want to see bricks at through by october 31st the next deadline and all believe that they can do a better job than the current prime minister than to resign made that they could go back to the european union and renegotiate the deal that theresa may has had over the past couple of years with the european union the problem there of course being that the european union has already said there is not going to be a renegotiation of the deal so they are going to run into some problems there and they have not said how they are going to solve that situation. thank you so much charlotte. now to a question you probably never considered before what determines the origin of. her the sheep it came from or the human. in iceland it's become
8:20 am
a divisive issue for business owners and local artisans. iceland seep our pride for the quality of their wool and fleeces which enable them to withstand harsh arctic conditions. no wonder then that the sweaters and scarves made from their will have become a kind of national trademark beloved by locals and tourists alike. but in recent times the relationship between businesses and local craftspeople has become anything but warm and fuzzy. an issue is this common demarcation had initiated from icelandic bull technically true but with one detail omission it the knitting often takes place in china a source of fury for iceland's local artisans. a man in the carbon footprint to ship containers of icelandic will to hong kong and how the process there and
8:21 am
then sent back half way across the world off the path of. business owners say it's the origin of the wool and not the people who knit it that should count. for 15 percent of the population of. polish people. many of. their lives here and there. but critics say the labeling is misleading and accuse businesses of pulling the wool over the eyes of environmentally minded customers. all right the women's world cup we've seen some favorite stars are there and we've seen some stumble but they for the tournament gives a 1st look at the most dominant force of the last 2 decades the team from the
8:22 am
united states the americans are defending champions and acutely aware that $29.00 team could be their toughest test yet. i will record world champions usa the title defense this summer in france might prove more difficult than ever before. i think it's going to be a remarkable world cup i think the the level of competition 4 years on from the last one has exponentially increased the different teams now rising and it's going to be a very open world cup and we're excited to go out there and attack it. but a challenge doesn't daunt the country with nearly half the world's total registered female youth players and things to america's solid infrastructure of club and college of a football coach joe ellis has had a vast pool of players to recruit from over the past 4 years her friends found squad has a balanced mix of experience veterans and young talents. like 21 year old super sub
8:23 am
mallory pugh she for one college football to play professionally and alongside her role models i was talking to alex like a week ago and she was like whatever role that year like give and just like play play it's the best that you can that's super important because like we need all 23 players to try and win the world cup for the team star alex morgan it will be her 3rd time playing on the world's biggest stage in 2015 she was coming off an injury but this year she's expected to perform at her very. we're just trying to take it one game at a time and we're not focusing on the fact that we're looking to defend anything we're definitely looking to come out with a win in no way i mean is that about a repeat or anything like that but repeated they might well attended and decisive wins in their preparation games indicate that the usa might continue dominating women's soccer well into the future yeah yeah. yeah.
8:24 am
so day 4 of this world cup gives us a 1st glimpse of the american women more corgan from do sports is here to talk us through the. mark the usa is up against thailand 1st do you think their performance the americans performance in that game are going to give us any idea of what their chances are of taking this defending their title no in a word this is this is really a big mistake. you know the u.s. a reigning champions many people's favorites for the title against the run cocytus thailand 2000 to one they were for the tournament with many of the biggies beforehand so this is a real missed much the usa should really have too much quality for them we saw alex morgan there in the piece and she's one of the best players in the world and she should have far too much quality for the likes of thailand the usa challenge will be and the last group game really against sweden that's more of a gauge as to how well they're going to do in this. should taiwan pull off
8:25 am
a shock that then that could make things really difficult for the u.s. but i don't i don't forsee the day we had a bit more of a contest with canada facing off with cameron out in when we did yes and that was a hard fought victory for canada and. unexpectedly i actually am afraid cameroon obviously former french colony had. a lot of diaspora fans there in the stadium and they were roared on kind of that just had a bit more quality condition be counted scored the goal she was she was aware in the pictures in france plays for leone just won the champions league there in the summer so kind of they just had a bit too much quality for comfort in a hard fought victory nonetheless and a good 3 points for canada and what about the day's other game any fireworks there . no not really no mill japan argentina a real disappointment for defeat for japan is there one of the best teams in the world when the tournament in 2011 not as a real blow to their chances puts them 2 points behind england in the group already
8:26 am
for argentina it was a real real guard action it's their 1st ever point to a world cup so they were delighted they really dug in and it was no no a nice game to watch at all for the japanese a real crushing blow and we'll see how that affects their chances really for the rest of the tournament mark thank you so much mark corrigan from devious sports thank you. and just a reminder of the top story we're following for you here today on d.w. news japan's prime minister is due in tehran as international efforts to ease tension between iran and the u.s. move. he follows the german foreign minister who left tehran talking about the difficulties on all sides. and the international labor organization is marking its 1st 100 years but while globalization and technology are creating new opportunities 25000000 people worldwide work in conditions that amount to little more than forced labor. you're watching news i'm terry martin coming up next it's
