9:01 pm
a case of fraud off the pitch former top german football officials charged with corruption did they find germany's right to host the 2006 world cup. also coming up the world has lost a beloved author the nobel laureate writer toni morrison whose novels exploring african-american identity gave voice to millions has died at the age of $88.00. it's good to have you with us tonight there are new worries of a political and maybe military firestorm over kashmir yesterday india's hindu nationalists led government revoked kashmir's special status by repealing article $370.00 of the constitution. pakistan's prime minister imran khan says he will
9:02 pm
consider approaching the un security council over the move earlier today pakistan's army said that it would go to any extent necessary to support the contested territory india's move has sparked tensions between the nuclear armed neighbors. residents in pakistani controlled kashmir have been making their anger clear that was easy and says it's revoking article $370.00 of its constitution which gives the region more freedom to make its own laws compared with other indian states in neighboring pakistan politicians have been meeting to discuss their response and action then i. will take action against us and we will respond because it cannot be possible that they attack us and we don't retaliate you know happen next things will be even more aggravated when both of us keep reacting it could lead to
9:03 pm
a conventional war. conventional waters of. people living in kashmir fear that india's decision to remove the region special autonomy status could still tensions even further activists they are say they will do whatever it takes to oppose the changes. and this is a question of political existence this is a question of. identity also i don't think that we can think it is who and we are going to fight it out but the indian government shows no signs of backing dying. jammu and kashmir is a part of india and integrity ponts. there is no legal or constitutional disputes about the rug match and left wing activists in india have been protesting against their government's actions but right wing hindu nationalists have been celebrating . the region has long been a source of tension kashmir shares a border with india and pakistan both. claim it is their territory but only control
9:04 pm
parts of it so china also claims a section and it's criticised india for stripping the region of its autonomy daley has warned to be saying that kashmir is an internal matter both have said they are committed to maintaining peace in the border areas and for more on what's happening over kashmir i'm joined now here at the big table by south asian political analyst boris will come mr brooke it's good to have you on the show. what's what's going on here i mean this special status had been in place for 7 decades right doesn't it and now india has decided to revoke it why now. well i think it's a 2nd i mean this prime minister modi's and then simply put he has just won his 2nd term in office and he he wants to implement the b j p agenda of the party is his party's agenda he promised in his campaign to do just that it's a long standing demand of b j p that the article 370 should be scrapped and
9:05 pm
so he's just fulfilling the agenda and the promises. and putting the country on a conflict course with pakistan you know not only of the country i think it's a regional issue we have seen today also a statement by china because china sees itself also involved as a party to this conflict so it's not a yeah it's not a 2 party conflict in a way it was a 3 party conflict and what happens if pakistan as we heard in the report pakistan may take this to the un security council what will that bring about anything. maybe because it should be debated i mean it's obviously it's a matter it's a concern for international peace i mean there is no doubt about it but i think much more important is what will do great polish to the united states but also russia china i mean they have all their own interests in this conflict china have
9:06 pm
some sway opposite as you say but the rest of the powers russia the united states europe how much influence do they really have done on india at this point. well they have influence on pakistan and the united states in particular when it comes to i mean the whole regional situation united states needs boxes done right now and order to solve the crisis in afghanistan to get out of afghanistan this list of problems. and so india is in a difficult position regionally right now it was always pakistan that was isolated over the last years or decades and maybe now it's the other way around and most of these countries pakistan and india that are nuclear powers if turkey is that insurance policy that they will not go to war over this it is not we have seen. numerous crises over the years
9:07 pm
mostly because insurgents or terrorists supported by pakistan. were active in indian administered kashmir do you think do you think they will go to war that we've got about 15 seconds do you think this will in the in the military conflict. no i don't think so i think there are so many countries involved because in both they will be able to contain it let's hope so exactly for still that we appreciate your insights tonight thank you. which one has issued a stark warning to pro-democracy activists in hong kong a day after violent clashes and a general strike paralyzed the territory a government spokesman in beijing today said that punishment is coming and that activists should not quote underestimate the strength of the central government he described the activists as violent criminals and valid that they would be held
9:08 pm

9:10 pm
relation to germany's bid to host the 2006 football world cup to talk about that i'm joined here by all of removing from secretary horst are schmidt the 3 stand accused of falsely claiming a payment of $6700000.00 euros from the german f.a. defeat was depression the financial world cup gala an event that never took place in 2002 then world cup organizing committee boss france beckenbauer received 6700000 euros from entrepreneur robert louis dreyfus back in balad then transferred this money to former qatari official mohamed bin hammam who has since been suspended for life due to corruption the central question of why bin hammam received the money is still unclear to investigators in 2005 the d.f.t. then transferred 6700000 euros defeat supposedly for the 2006 world cup kickoff gala but then transferred the money directly to louis dreyfus swiss authorities are
9:11 pm
investigating france beckenbauer in a separate case on account of his current state of health if back and bauer were charged along with the others and then failed to appear it could in danger the entire case. and the clock is ticking. it. to commuters are under time pressure there are only 8 months left under the statute of limitations it's high time charges are filed. now swiss justice has to hurry to reach a verdict or the fraud charges will have to be dropped. over let's look at this we've got. a reportedly paid 6700000 euros to qatari football executive mohamed bin. is there any speculation over what that money or that payment was supposed to be for there's always speculation football and this is no different i mean there are. there is about what that money was used for and i should stress that this is speculation this is not anything that's been pretty cool
9:12 pm
but the one theory is that this money was used to buy votes to germany to host the 2006 world cup mohamed bin hammam let's not forget was an executive committee member at the time the executive committee was the body that decided who would host the world cup and of course jenny did end up hosting the 2006 there's all this drama and i mean. i think any number 1st would be asking why was that can borrow or even paying that kind of money to someone you could start to begin with like you said the speculation how big of it is she was this going to become for german soccer well i think it's huge not just for german soccer as well but germany as a whole because you've got to remember that the 2006 world cup was not just a sports event that germany happened to host it was a real cultural moment that everybody that said sorry much about where modern germany was in the world and where it still is today you know about multiculturalism here diversity about national pride about the way that gender is to seen internationally as well and any kind of tarnish event memory and he kind of
9:13 pm
any anything that brings down the reputation of that is going to affect the way that people remember and that is a very sad thing it's a horrible thought to think that you were almost a living a lie if you will to prove that it was ball or an owner think you are in the united states there have been more commemorations after a weekend of mass shootings with the death toll now standing at 31 u.s. president donald trump has called for bipartisan solutions to end the bloodshed but he's facing sharp criticism from democrats who say he lacks the moral authority to rally the country against violence in recent trumpeters do texas tomorrow. alexander phenomenon is there and she sent us this report. a vigil to honor the road ragers a high school student killed today in washington you know past only 15 years old bright light and quick on his feet that's how his friends remember me we were
