pressure lam who is backed by beijing had already promised a perspective on the law but that wasn't enough to quell the anger. i'm here to condemn the police violence against us it's unacceptable of the police to find our demonstration last wednesday as a riot. lamb even justifies the police violence as righteous measures oh that's why i'm here to urge her to step down for a few hours on monday morning demonstrate has continued to block a road leading to government buildings their concerns over beijing's tightening grip on the former british colony have not gone away many now see this as a battle for hong kong seoul. ghostscript the very latest now from the bowl and your he's in hong kong for us this morning good morning to you i'm in tears for tony protesters out again today very angry we saw in that report against excessive force what's happening right now where you are. the area

10:05 am
after all these fake protests she didn't really apologize and she even thanked the probation camp for supporting her and so that's why people are very angry they're furious about that they want caroline to step down however you just mentioned that she just announced that the bill would be suspended and for most of the protest as a suspension is not enough they want the bill to be completely taken off the agenda they want it to be withdrawn and so that's why a lot of people went out yesterday and today they're still there so the extra edition bowl is still very important we heard activist joshua wang getting back to carry lymes and she has to go he's now been released from prison what do you make of that and what role will he be playing in these ongoing protests but he was released from prison and that's actually just a coincidence because he served his terms so it's not like these big protests.
10:06 am
released. and he mentioned that in prison he watched the news and then he felt very sad that he couldn't be with the people and he also announced that he will join the protests right away because those protests have and to some 2000000 people out on the streets how is beijing likely to react in the days ahead moving forward to the latest developments in all go all beijing has already said that they will continue it will continue to support carrying the chief executive it says so it's very unlikely that carol lam will now announce that while she will step down however she is really facing a lot of pressure because 2000000 people went out on to the streets yesterday and that's a lot of pressure it is very clear that people are very discontented with with her and also some of her closest allies have already started to distance themselves
10:07 am
from her so obviously she's facing a lot of pressure but beijing just said they will it will continue to support her so probably she will still be able to stay in power for a while tripoli thanks so much for those insights. preview now on some of the other stories making the news this hour. reports indicate that deutsche bank is planning an overhaul to shift away from risky investment banking will create a so-called bad bank to help to hold poorly for firm performing assets valued at about 50000000000 euros it may also shrink or shut down its u.s. equity trading business. but says it is back on again in a number of countries in south america which were hard hit by a massive power outage all over the weekend the blackout left more than 40000000 people in argentina uruguay purged why without electricity officials are still

10:15 am
tasteless it's horrible up north and pulling in every respect absolutely indeed i can see. it is still unclear whether the crime did indeed have a far right motive the regional state premier remains cautious. but groups thought leaders of even the question will certainly have to be discussed did he act alone with others there are things that we're looking in to be on the crimes to be very well but at the moment i believe it's much too early to say what it's like what with all this stuff it's a food security services say they will make a statement in the next few days. ok for more on the latest developments of this story we're joined in the studio by do you have used to political correspondent linda crane good morning melinda we have some unconfirmed reports at this hour about the suspect what do we know about him and how police tracked him down we know that he's 45 years of age that he was arrested early on saturday and he was
10:16 am
arrested because the police traced the d.n.a. evidence from the clothes of dr luke the victim that led them to the record of this suspect and the suspect does apparently have a long criminal record including at least one of the or violent act we're awaiting more information from the police we don't for example have a name yet the german media as you mentioned are reporting that he seems to have had the suspect to have had connections to the right wing extremists ok police are being very guarded in what they're saying the media is is going away and here in germany is a shaping up to be a political murders i would it's looking like unclear we don't have confirmation of that yet what we do know as i said is that media say that this particular suspect had connections to the right wing scene but we also know is that there had been death threats against dr luka after the incident that we saw there in the video he
10:17 am
had basically stood up for the chances open migration policy in 2015 after that where there were a lot of death threats threats they die down but there was a certain resurgence late in the winter this year and certainly what can be said is that after he was shot there was a lot of very very violent speech online directed against him in the violent online speech we're looking at aren't we a certain pattern of at least anger in relation to migration online and in public and well let's say this german authorities say that they're. it is a rising threat of right wing violence violence from the really far right of the political spectrum in germany particularly people being radicalized online this is not the 1st attack against a local politician that would if this were in fact politically connected would have
10:18 am
been in connection with right wing violent anger about migration we saw the attack on a cologne politician she's now the mayor of cologne we saw on attack on a local mayor in the town of all of them connected to right wing essentially hate that is being very much incited also online ok and we're waiting for these unconfirmed reports to guess more information on them and we should have that in the days ahead hopefully monday thanks very much it's to israel now where a settlement in the contested go along hides borders own has been named after u.s. president donald trump prime minister benjamin netanyahu led that ceremony launching trump heights the aim is to strengthen the ties between washington and israel. correspondent tony kramer visited that site in the go on its.
10:19 am
this is the settlement of killer pull him on the occupied golan heights a new neighborhood is planned here named in honor of u.s. president donald trump only a dozen presidents live in killer pull him there right many years ago from the former soviet union 30. 1 of them the red tory is amused by the recent interest in this home. we suddenly have lots of visitors coming here from all different parts of the country most recently was a couple from tel aviv and a family from jerusalem here it's because the settlement is going to be named after charm but they also are interested in the golan heights. of koskie helped build the settlement in 1901 over the years more and more families moved away to less remote towns now it's almost abandoned the new neighborhood
10:20 am
named after trump will be built next to the old settlement at the based on old plans that were never realized in april prime minister netanyahu announced that he would name a town in the occupied golan heights after u.s. president donald trump in honor of his decision to recognize israeli control over the territory trumps controversial decision most criticized by the international community which considers the golan heights to be occupied territory is where the captured this strategic important player talk from syria 967 here israelis were thrilled by trump's decision they hope the new place will lead to new infrastructure and investment. there it is very exciting because no new settlements have been built on the golan heights for 30 years it's unbelievable a lot of young families with kids already waiting to come and live here google can that's also what's most. to long term resident flooding may be the 2nd.
10:21 am
named after trial. it's important that something changes here doesn't happen just by changing the name. you have to act and that's done by people and money and time today or time tomorrow so it doesn't really matter. what does the u.s. president agrees with the israeli government that this land should remain under control. and we have more about that in the region at our website dot com it's the sports now into the women's world cup in france there were 2 big winners in those games on sunday tom going to hear from the sports is here to talk about that good morning tom org let's start off with that game with the u.s. what juggernaut 13 goals in the last match against thailand was a repeat last night against deliberately i mean they was very close of course how
10:22 am
they overwhelm thailand 13 goals it wasn't to be quite because chile are something of a stronger opponent and they made it a bit harder for the usa not least by a pretty display from the goalkeeper and the usa were still similarly dominant is the reason why that's such a powerhouse in the women's game and they've really sent a message to other teams statement of intent that they hear now when we can see how they go on against. alex morgan skulled 5 goals against thailand but was rested on the bench against chile such as the strength in depth at the u.s. side. colleen lloyd was restored to the starting line up and it took 11 minutes to score a recalled 6 in a 6 straight cup game chile felt they'd be cool ice midway through the 1st half khalid guerrero was deemed to be offside and interfering in play despite not touching the ball. almost immediately the ruthless u.s.
10:23 am
team increased their lead thanks to a superb head from juliet's obviously the best headed goal of the tournament so far . lloyd then made it 3 no 10 minutes before the hof time break. the late penalty robbed her of the chance for a glorious hat trick the u.s. power into the last 16 with a game to span. as a real match there's another big game sweden taking on thailand how that play out that's right yeah well of course we as mentioned thailand were completely demolished by the usa $130.00 in their 1st game and sweden no easy opponent that ended up finishing 51 to sweden they were in front thanks than in december and they spoke and there were plenty more to come it was for one you know actually quite soon afterwards. is the 2nd. by the time that thailand actually mentioned did
10:24 am
manage to get their 1st goal of the tunnel and. there is and we can see how elated their coach was once they find the money support $1.00 pos we did so as i said finished $51.00 suite and that's partly taught and of course with a minus 17 goal difference so i think qualification is going to be fairly difficult very difficult for general thank you james you have managed to score a single goal so if faced at least one of the board what to look forward to tonight tom or germany are in action as we know germany of course already threw in the tournament but they face south africa in their quest to make a perfect record 3 wins out of 3 south africa was really needing a victory if they had to go through china in the same group also in action against spain those 2 really kind of competing for 2nd place in group b. and the hosts france as well in group. action tonight is this kind of similar situation for germany because france of court 2 victories out their 1st 2 games so far so if they beat nigeria this evening that would be 3 after
10:25 am
a non points out of 9 both of those potentially then going through as champions of that group and it's there for support and i for both those teams tom thanks very much for that time tonight for us few. same with sports as a cricket world cup in england india beat pakistan by 89 runs now this is one of the most eagerly awaited matches the tournament between 2 bitter rivals on and off the pitch an estimated 1000000000 people tuned in to watch that match.
