cooperation fight against climate change is against everything the other 60 does want to agree on and that's it's why president mccall said there will be no final conclusions normally do 7 ns was a consensus about global issues this time there would be no consensus so that's a precaution to prevent that mr trump can blow up the whole thing and this is the 7th and in this agreement that's clear already now ok just agreement disarray as it were with previous g 7 summits protests have been planned we can see the protesters behind you in on di what's that plan how much disruption of a likely to bring to this event. by the protester think they can gather 10000 people here i doubt this these crowds are not huge that 10000 policemen to keep them at bay it might be that the black bloc the more militant protesters will try to march on beer it's later on but that is not for sure we don't know
4:03 pm
actually what will happen over the weekend but for sure the protests will not be as huge as for example at the g 20 summit in hamburg 2 years ago all right ben to get in on die in france thanks so much. ok let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world. and on that manned russian soyuz spacecraft has failed to dock with the international space station a craft is carrying supplies and a robot crew member named fatal russian flight controllers say the rocket could attempt and now the docking next week. north korea has again launched missiles in defiance of international efforts to denuclearize the country the missiles are thought to be short range ballistic rockets they were fired off north korea's east coast into the sea today's launch is the latest following stool to disarmament talks with the us. the us supreme court says justice ruth bader ginsburg has

4:05 pm
will then be distributed to various e.u. countries that have agreed to take them in as a reason that's not of ours we feel rightly about that humane solution has now been found for the 356 people on board the ocean viking. but this can't stop here i must find a way to stop situations like this from happening again. the ocean biking is run by the aid organizations doctors without borders and s.o.s. mediterranean their crew has been reporting to berlin via video conference and they described distressing conditions on board and passengers suffering from severe trauma we have also spoken to and trace injuries those who have experienced or as during their time. at the hands of traffic person criminals they are being exploited. to what we can only describe as torture the ngos believe that despite the dangers at sea migrants will continue attempting
4:06 pm
to flee across the mediterranean and as long as they do so the ngos have said they will continue their rescue missions. because this year alone by the middle of august almost $600.00 people have died on the central mediterranean route. and we will not just stand by and watch while people drown who could have been helped and who need to be rescued. for the passengers on the ocean viking the nightmare is over for the time being but the drama of the rescue at sea is not over in the meantime a solution still has to be found for each individual ship. giraffes have been given more protection in a bid to halt their dramatic population decline the convention on international trade in endangered species or sites has agreed to regulate the buying and selling of giraffes and their body parts the number of africa's gentle creatures has shrunk from over 160002 just under 100000 in 3 decades.

to raf's they're both majestic and lovable perhaps even more so with the one key in fact such idiosyncrasies make it easier for researches to recognise their old buddies. to be in a really wild place and to have such a close connection with individual wild animals that you might be looking at them from one side and you already know when they turn around what you see on the other side just like knowing a friend. and indeed a friend for life. john daugherty 1st came to some blue national reserve 21 years ago as a carpenter and a pretext for getting up close to his favorite animals. now research he knows africa's giraffe population as a whole has shrunk by 40 percent over the last 30 years. during the lifetime of the oldest giraffes here in somebody's national reserve. 7 out of 10 of
4:08 pm
the species has disappeared poaching is one of the main culprits giraffes are often killed to eat when other food sources are running low but the some blue tribe who live near the park stop such poaching long ago thanks partly to education work by john's colleagues tribal elders have noticed the change in stocks to. used to be many giraffes here now there are far fewer of them. without giraffes there would be fewer tourists and less income for the somebody who sells souvenirs. but tourism comes in different forms it also includes trophy hunting which is legal in southern african countries like south africa namibia and zambia. this american woman for example shot a rare giraffe in south africa she defended her action by saying her hunting fee
4:09 pm
would help maintain giraffe stocks that's a view shared by many southern african governments john daugherty says that's unacceptable and he's not alone the southern african development community now wants trophy hunters to prove that their hunting went in danger animal stocks i'm personally very pleased opinion was divided but i'm delighted that side has come to what i think is a very sensible decision that will help african countries face with the pointer up operations to save them for all of us for the future. the hope is that such measures will prevent giraffes from experiencing the fate of so many species that face possible extinction. to hong kong now where anti-government demonstrators a staging that 12th consecutive weekend of protests initially peaceful gathering sounds of demonstrators marched through the industrial kuantan area they were blocked blocked by riot squads with shields and batons protest leaders have

4:13 pm
a new highway used to be built through an area in the south of moscow the problem during the soviet era radioactive waste was dumped here locals around environmentalists are sounding the alarm dangerous levels of radiation that's what nuclear physicist andre as he's radiation counter tells him every time here moscow . pauli metals factory started dumping nuclear waste on this hill in the 1940 s. and fifty's when the area in the south of moscow wasn't yet part of the city so far the radioactive material is contained under a layer of clay but the activist insists that the plant highway could cut straight through the nuclear waste. they might start digging up the soil and moving it around without taking into account that is contaminated they will be released into the atmosphere and anyone who breathes that song will get radioactive nuclei into their lungs. he has been giving informal tours of the spot to journalists and locals. local residents like are worried about what could end up in the
4:14 pm
river and in their long he says i just don't know if you know that this nuclear waste is here but they aren't going to touch it then it's not to worrying but knowing that they're going to build a right here and all this waste could slip down the hill that's really scary. says locals have always known about the nuclear waste in their neighborhood the site is partially closed off but the riverside nearby is popular with the residents. of view from above shows just how urban the area is the nuclear waste site is slotted between a park and moscow's main river the mosque now the plan is to build a fly over parallel to the railway bridge here construction is slated to begin later this year the city says the new road will ease traffic in moscow and they insist that construction is safe and effective but the people to move them with the soil will not be disturbed as support for the flyover will be built here its
4:15 pm
foundations will be up to 5 metres below the surface we've carried out studies of the sort of that depth and there were no radiation measurements above the norm there and the road went touch the ground here but it could be more to put people in the area don't believe the author already they recently held a protest against the highway. which people here see as the latest sign their government just doesn't care about the signs here read road of death and warn of a 2nd term noble catastrophe. in their lives in the high rise apartments across from the plant construction she grew up here and has been fighting the highway since march. smythe. from my point of view they are committing a crime against the residents who live here i don't know whose interests are driving them but they are in no way considering our interests. when the frustration here is palpable but the other protesters want to keep fighting with petitions and protests to make sure their homes and their city stay safe.
4:16 pm
our next story takes us to the u.k. where residents of the world's coastal village of sorrow are feeling the effects of climate change the sea is growing ever closer you know residents are being told they will have to leave their homes. mike russell has the sea right on his doorstep he's a dedicated angler who's lived on the coast of wales for over 40 years. right now the irish sea is bright and shiny but the people here have seen their share of storm surges. my house stands right behind this dike it's held firm against wind and tide so far. it's hard to realize that. with rising sea levels all this could be gone.
4:17 pm
they say in as little as 50 years it's hard to believe. fairborn is a seaside village of about 8000 people and say the experts doomed by climate change several 1000000 pounds have gone into building downs and dikes to protect the houses from the sea. but now the welsh authorities are throwing in the towel and calling on the villagers to find new homes. i we're measuring to see levels in the area across the north wales coast and we are finding evidence that sea levels are rising that reality and so before any catastrophe happens before anything big happens we really really need to be making sure that people are aware of those risks and that we're talking to them and involving them in the solutions. but what solutions can there possibly be mike and his partner see their lives their home and lots of money at stake quite amazing the situation but it's
4:18 pm
not a symbol for them as pensioners to buy a new house elsewhere they feel that the state has left them on their own 25 years in the future the fact is that they have no answers for us they can't tell us where to go to move us they can't tell us when they're going to move us there's no financial support no compensation or tool and the sting in the table to the us is if the insist that everybody moves out. they would expect mike to lie to pay for the demolishment arts his hopes. it's true that fairborn won't be the only town to face imminent danger in coming years. over 30 communities in wales a dealing with erosion and flooding from rising seas. and infrastructure such as rail and power lines and roads are also at risk climate experts say it's a massive financial time bomb for britain's coasts i the residents of fairborn

4:21 pm
in cambodia only about 20 percent of plastic waste is recycled the rest ends up in landfill or strewn around the countryside. but that's not all $83.00 sea containers full of plastic waste have been found at the port of ship. they were there for months without being picked up so customs of dorothy's opened them to find that they were full of illegally imported plastic waste from the usa and canada customs of dorothy's want to take action against the perpetrators it turns out you got bitch to. say can be. fine. cambodia can't cope with even more waste coming from abroad the country already looks like a garbage dump in many places and while some private initiatives are trying to

4:24 pm
got a new car we don't want to make life difficult for allotment garden it's but will need to repurpose some of them in the coming years because berlin is a growing city that needs base for schools daycare centers and sports grounds kind of few allotment gardens about one percent did have to make way for those plans in the years ahead for bison was the kluges intend to fight. they have joined forces with their neighbors in the colony. they agree that schools are important but feel they should not necessarily be that here. the allotment garden colony has already been squeezed to make way for apartment buildings once before now it could completely disappear the end off a 102 year old green oasis. played

4:35 pm
getting into position and keeping the balance is hard enough then it's time to run . my 1st attempt at leaves the whites a lot to be desired. it's not a walk in the park my rivals are professional athletes and weight lifters. so how do you train for the game for. a local force field. go down and basically through which the boat is much of the way if you go to a burzum. telegraph pole. such a shame i lost my telegraph pole with nothing but my crash course to prepare me it's time to have a go. without the boots the went grass doesn't give me much grip. my throat fails to impress.

the future of europe starts september 2nd on d w. or. hashtag. this is g.w. news live from berlin and more violence in hong kong in a 12th straight weekend of pro-democracy demonstrations riots once again confronting protesters over that demands to protect the territories independence from china to get the latest live from our correspondent in the city also coming up world leaders gathered for the g 7 summits in the french 16th theorists the focus
4:57 pm
is supposed to be on top to inequality but the u.s. china trade disputes and huge forest fires me out as a threatening to overshadow the seaside gathering. and brazil sends in the military to battle those forest fires president jalal scenario pledges no tolerance for awesome nests full to have started some of the outbreaks in the world's largest rain forest plus hundreds of migrants picked up by a charity rescue ship in the mediterranean finally and most of the new arrivals will now be relocated in 6 other european countries but a long term agreement on migration seems as far away as i have a. time when you can just mackinnon thanks so much for joining us a standoff between riot police and protesters in hong kong has descended into
4:58 pm
violence often initially peaceful gathering as anti-government demonstrations headed into that 12th consecutive weekend thousands of demonstrators marched through the industrial quinton area they will blocked by riot squads with holmes antic ass protest leaders have criticized home phone police for what they say is an auv a full scale response to the months and demonstrate demonstrations. let's bring in now our correspondent charlotte child pills and in hong kong monitoring the situation for us charlotte protests is gathering again tell us what's happening where you are right now. and it was just a few meters away from a shopping center where we have seen the latest clashes on folding we still police firing it possible that some protesters who have gathered in this plaza in the shopping sent to see many trying to set up barricades just a repeat of the scenes that we saw earlier on today when. we believe rebels but
4:59 pm
it well protesters hunted the process we stepped up big gun building big main street to call call what we saw a number of protests is daunting to. bricks very quickly off which could easily have been talking at the protest descending and. clearing the area and then came in to take out once again for another weekend here in hong kong. clearly an increasingly robust response by the police to the protesters and they're getting criticism for this something. they are a lot of these processes that lead to the coming creasing really violent it that i'm doing all these demonstrations that i wanted i cheated on which is. from the place of the folks from one of their initial response but it's now become independent investigation into police action one thing out that crisis is in
5:00 pm
particular with one young process that i was damaged apparently by rubber bullets during the clashes and what we're hearing today it is possible that another person may say has been hit in the eye with the rebels but if we call them that but we don't think reports social media want that protest to being is taken into an ambulance that it is acting like this which or anything like the anger among many of the prices. yes yesterday thousands of people to form a human chain. ground home call now that could be described as a peaceful protest couldn't it. but up until today we have seen that it's relatively peaceful week especially since last sunday and i think 1700000 people. that there was. great that that he could. put it off the ball off the. finding clashes between police and great it went around the wild beast thinking. that they
5:01 pm
were. led by a lot of. the a lot of the including that every. human chain that was right there when i say. 100000 feet what taking in the right that. today very good. all right some conflicting messages that as you say striking scenes left from that human chain shell that shell some pill in hong kong thanks so much heads of state governments along with hundreds of protesters are gathering for this weekend's g. 7 summit in france leaders of 7 leading industrialized nations have started arriving now in the french resort town of beer its essential focus is how to tackle inequality but the tit for tat dispute between the u.s. and china over trade is already proving a distraction the huge forest fire is raging in the amazon old side likely to overshadow in the toolbox now the 3 day meeting is taking place amid show off
5:02 pm
differences over a clutch of global issues that risk further divide in a group of countries that are already struggling to speak with one voice and launch antiglobalization protests are expected to further disrupt the proceedings. and i'm joined now by get up his band they get he's in on di just along the coast from the summit so bad there's an awful lot going on tell us what is on the agenda this weekend what's happening today. both president michael runs through presidents of course as a global leader who can tackle global issues and you put many things on the agenda of the g. 7 the wildfires in brazil the fight against inequality boosting the fight against climate change and all sorts of things and on the weekend also must have protests expected against the g 7 group. protesters are already gathering on the i
5:03 pm
there's a march blend today and the marches today also a little bit closer to be or it's on the actually is 28 kilometers away from being written on sunday protests will also try protests about or to try to get into the red zone the cordoned off part of the areas where the g. 7 actually takes place. so it's a huge challenge for the french president who is also experiencing opposition here in france the yellow vests are protesting against him already since last september ok so a loss on the agenda now you mentioned the wildfires in brazil mccaw is leading the international charge against brazilian president diable sanaa is calling for action to be taken on the fires raging in the amazon come back here in a 2nd let's take a closer look at that fast. these are the worst fires the amazon basin has seen since records began in 2013 the dry season is only just beginning in many places it hasn't rained in weeks brazil's president has been blaming and he has with no
5:04 pm
evidence he now says the blazes may have been started deliberately she predicted modestly to clear a cyclist or car drivers out there who stop at the side of the road and watch fires that stretch for over a 100 meters that's common. amateur footage shows fires along highways through the anis and media reports say families organized what they called at day a fire up a small. satellite images show dozens of fires were started on august the 10th often destroying rain forest for cattle grazing. on thursday both nora and france's president manuel michael exchanged critical comments on twitter france says it will oppose an trade deal with several south american states and that's brazil takes action and both france and germany said that address the issue of the amazon at the upcoming g 7 meeting today does he remember when the g 7 gets together this weekend the chances of the firm belief that this current crisis in the amazon rainforest
5:05 pm
has to be dealt with. so the french president definitely has the chance on the sawed. off in our house call discussing the amazon with representatives from the region colonialist but with more leaders calling the blazers an international crisis the fires appear firmly on the agenda. all right so a huge topic but of course these fires a just one of the issues likely to be on this weekend's agenda tell us what other important issues also will be discussed. these 7 would lead the protests which i saw here know the disarray the disagreement within the g 7 is so big that they can also be blown up by for example by u.s. president donald trump who is opposing just everything the g 7 stand force for so far. trade international cooperation fight against climate change trump is against everything the other 60 does want to agree on and that is why president mccall said
5:06 pm
there will be no final conclusions normally do 7 ns was a consensus about global issues this time there would be no consensus so that's a precaution to prevent that mr trump can blow up the whole thing and this is the 7th and in this agreement that's clear already now can't just agreement disarray as ever with previous g 7 summits protests have been planned we can see the protesters behind you in on di what's that plan how much disruption or they like each bring to this event. for the protest i think they can gather 10000 people here i doubt this these crowds are not huge that 10000 policemen to keep them at bay it might be that the black bloc the more militant protesters will try to march on beer it's later on but that is not for sure we don't know actually what will happen over the weekend but for sure the protests will not be as huge as they were
5:07 pm
for example at the g 20 summit in hamburg 2 years ago all right ben to get in on di in france thanks so much. ok let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world today north korea has again launch missiles and defiance of international efforts to denuclearize the country the missiles are thought to be short range ballistic rockets light means they were fired off north korea's east coast into the sea today's launch is the latest following stalled just on. talks with the u.s. . and the u.s. supreme court says justice ruth bader ginsburg has undergone treatment for a malignant tumor in her pancreas the court said no further treatment was needed at this time 86 year old justice ginsburg is one of 4 left leaning justices on the 9 member of course. it was. and thousands of people marched across algeria to hold a free elections and an end to military influence in the government opponents have
5:08 pm
pushed for political reform since mass protests forced the resignation of president up to lizzie's good feature in april. it's to the mediterranean now when nearly $360.00 migrants have been allowed to disembark on the island of malta the refugees will now be relocated to 6 other european countries dozens of unaccompanied minors were amongst the migrants most of them from sudan now the deal ends the latest tense standoff between e.u. governments and charity shifts but there is still no long term agreement in sight. there is not a lot of breathing space on the ocean viking where migrants waited for almost 2 weeks at sea water and other supplies have been running short but now the ordeal has come to an end the people on board have been allowed to go ashore in malta they will then be distributed to various e.u. countries that have agreed to take them in as a reason that's not he as of ours we feel relieved that
5:09 pm
a humane solution has now been found for the 356 people on board the ocean viking. but this can't stop here i must find a way to stop situations like this from happening again. the ocean biking is run by the aid organizations doctors without borders and s.o.s. mediterranean a their crew has been reporting to berlin via video conference and they described distressing conditions on board and passengers suffering from severe trauma we have also spoken to and treated injuries those who have experienced or during their time. at the hands of. criminals they have not been exploited. to what we can only describe as torture the ngos believe that despite the dangers at sea migrants will continue attempting to flee across the mediterranean and as long as they do so the ngos have said they will continue their rescue missions.
5:10 pm
because this year alone by the middle of august almost $600.00 people have died on the central mediterranean route. and we will not just stand by and watch while people drown who could have been held and who need to be rescued. for the passengers on the ocean viking the nightmare is over for the time being but the drama of the rescue at sea is not over in the meantime a solution still has to be found for each individual ship. now a russian robot astronauts is currently floating alone in space off to trying and failing. aboard the international space station the robot whose name is say the old should carry out operations in space too dangerous for humans the spacecraft carrying the machine spent 2 days getting into position the attempt to link up with failed ground crew all hoping to try again on monday. our
5:11 pm
mind of the top story we are following for years as being more violence during pretty democracy demonstrations in hong kong riot police have confronted demonstrations over that amounts to protect the territories independence from china . watching t.v. news live from berlin up next we'll be looking at plans for the small city of the future made possible thanks to think tanks and the internet of things but they will manage citizens data that's on shift our technology program in just a moment i'll be back to talk me out with more world news thanks so much for watching it up to. bring to me. not everyone who wants books has to go in the same. t.w. literature list a 100 german must create. laws from the g 7 meeting.
5:12 pm
up of the agenda global inequality the crisis with iran and international trade. but donald trump spent with his host french president michel and the trade war with china can derail everything. the british prime minister my views the occasion for is great press it showed. reporting from the g. 7 meeting in p.r. it's life for d.w.i. news. the city of the future is smart it's entirely interconnected that will regulate traffic save energy 5 crime assisted by big data and the internet of things brave new world or rather a surveillance nightmare what because mosfet is look like and do we really want to live there autopsies a day on ship. more
5:13 pm
than half of the world's population lives in cities and this number is steadily rising resulting in enormous challenges more people want traffic more pollution more energy consumption more water usage more waste smart cities are supposed to help cope with these problems projects are popping up everywhere for instance in nigeria south korea india or malaysia a livable city that can think for itself how does this work like this for example. visions of the future this is a smart city as imagined by tech companies and urban planning is regular street lights are replaced by small poles which connect to other internet of things devices and provide broadband text to driverless cars accidents hardly ever happen . and drones and robots deliver goods even coffee. in this
5:14 pm
future city salad grows underground at the urban farm. fomented and visual reality make processes more efficient. one example is that firefighters can be assisted by the control center and tech helps to find and correct system errors to prevent damage before it happens. sounds fantastic but in order for these ideas to become reality technical preconditions are essential a central role for so the new mobo communications standard 5 g. it's the engine for the internet of things and enables interconnected infrastructures on a grand scale an expert on smart cities is you and i was he's a researcher at the institute for technology management at the university of st gollum and has published a book with guidelines for cities that want to become smart we want to know how do i make a city. and why. we want to improve people's lives. that's
5:15 pm
how i would summarize the goal of a smart city. in order to do this it's important for citizens to be able to properly explain what kind of city they'd like to live in. that's the starting point and we can begin designing a smart city based on those demands. imagine you're the mayor of the city and want to turn it into a small city you have to consider the following. you need to make your city interconnected by adding census data for instance to cars or streets to be able to regulate traffic or to measuring stations stations throughout the. city is usually a combination of the different urban systems that we have. for the most part that means mobility systems housing system. of systems energy systems
5:16 pm
education systems and so on anything affecting citizens in their everyday lives can be assigned a digital shadow. that simply collecting data is. big data is no end in itself data needs to be prepared. for usage you can be. driving restrictions when the air is. anything is possible interconnected spots. to build a small city one must do 3 things connected devices collect data and assess this data to find solution for the citizens but how do i benefit from the smart city here. in. the city says. taxes by using resources more efficiently with
5:17 pm
the help of sensors public spaces are only irrigated when they're too dry. the garbage bins are only emptied once they're full. then helsinki garbage trucks have become obsolete waste is transferred to underground collection points without noise or pollution. in rio de janeiro a smartphone app is enabling residents to shape their surroundings the app smart favela creates a 3 dimensional avatar of the shantytowns when city planners come up with new ideas these can be looked at on the app and then citizens can vote on them. in palo alto in the u.s. parking lots now have sensors these notify citizens whenever a parking space is free the city's traffic is constantly recorded. smart robo cops are supposed to make do by say for the police robots are equipped with cameras and can find persons through facial recognition tech reports can be filed on
5:18 pm
a touchpad. and drill hole that ukraine citizens can view the incomes of civil servants and check on how politicians have voted in the city council. and. the city owned businesses lay bare their accounts using open data in the fight against corruption. in darmstadt germany interconnected sensors assess the air quality and send this information to a data center which analyzes air pollution and if necessary reports of bad air quality. in order for these systems to work vast amounts of data on all citizens are required but who ensures that the data is safe and who has access to it different solutions exist. data is essential for the city it provides the basis for designing intel. and applications for the city but
5:19 pm
what about data protection. to be clear in a smart city there is no protection from data being collected but on the other hand it's precisely this data that provides the basis for implementing and controlling this city system. as a result very careful and conscientious decisions need to be made regarding how the data is handled. if the city controls this can be advantageous when it comes to data protection but most cities lack the technical expertise to process and analyze the data for this reason many cities cooperate with big tech companies they have the capacity and the algorithms needed to work with data. like. that corp it will construct an entire district of tarantulas within me was technology of course but the data sovereignty stays with corporations like alphabet which is problematic as they use to make money. an entire city state and that's
5:20 pm
really off as many opportunities so what to do experts argue for so-called data utilities these are publicly financed but independent organizations they manage crosses and controlled access to data and the one interested in developing smart city solutions could use them no matter if city owned business. or big company a promising approach i think everyone should be able to profit from. personal data is anonymised as a citizen i cannot influence which state of mine is being used. to cold a project by the european union even further to empower individuals to control their data citizens themselves should decide whether personal information stays private or if it's being shared in order to make the city smarter. pilot projects have been running in amsterdam and barcelona. 2018 we believe that data should be
5:21 pm
understood as a public infrastructure as a common good water like electricity like transportation like the air. they also believe that citizens can responsibly deal with their own data. a desirable goal citizens should be in charge of their own data private corporations or governments control data in the smart where do you draw the line when it comes to surveillance an example from china. taxi headquarters in shenzhen china the red cars occupied the green. algorithms used right histories to predict which areas are likely to have a lot of customers and. drivers can then directly head to these locations like. his car is part of the network consisting of around 20000 taxis. and it's equipped with an interior camera meaning the taxi headquarters can watch
5:22 pm
him work and listen in on all conversations. in the beginning i was uncomfortable as i didn't really know much about it and felt constantly observed but actually there is no reason for concern the cameras protect the customers and drivers to. privacy is ensured as not everyone can view the video. according to the taxi headquarters all data is well protected and deleted after $72.00. they say the system is great for educating drivers and the footage can be used to settle conflicts or complaints the taxi provider also says customers complain less frequently and that most likely cameras as do drivers who are now less worried about being threatened but the police also has access to the videos how freely people really converse and the taxis. another problem small. streetlamps parking
5:23 pm
lot sensors or garbage bins are connected to the internet and offer potential gateways for hackers theoretically one weak link is all it takes to shut down the city's central servers and cyber terrorists could go even further stonier demonstrates how to protect oneself. in terms of digital administration in stoney and leads the way in europe estonians can vote online and almost all public services are digitally accessible but this also increases vulnerability. in 2007 estonia was targeted by cyber attacks from a global network of connected thoughts. both online banking and government websites with fact it in response to estonia has implemented annual international training on fighting attacks from hackett's they organized by nato inside the defense hub and every 20 nations the military and tech companies take part. question is look we got the. dark the question is when you get to the
5:24 pm
subject. there's not something you can do once because that landscape are changing every day side as a curate is also crucial for smart cities they are becoming a steadily increasing economic factor tech companies use smart cities around the world to test their future technologies the big question is does this benefit the citizens to a point of importance to me who controls the applications and who owns the data we need to find responsible solutions and the citizens' interest what's your opinion would you like to live this way all smart is your city join the discussion i'm looking forward to your feedback by phone now and see you next time.
5:25 pm
michael ballack is as printing is a picture. it is a must see him for a month coming up well charles. means have already fallen on the spell of the city on the neck of joining us as we explore. hyderabad. times news on d w. for. the hour surprising people straight for some of the money out of a moment when there's a flood water comes up to your waist going to close faster every morning but. the

lack of water is an equally dangerous. time keep give people myself so they can plant crops and trying to meet the system. floods and droughts will climate change become the main driver of mass migration you could not write any up we're going to fix net if you want and probably most of it will. the climate exodus starts september 5th on d w.
5:27 pm
one can say the. there is something quite ideal about the location and surroundings of the city unfortunately that's not a quote from me but from good to he was referring to heidelberg in southwestern germany this romantic city has a chance that many writers and painters let's see where they are it casts its spell on me too. the old bridge is actually very romantic it leads across the neck a river to the old town. right next to the bridge gate we find this bronze monkey it's a much photographed landmark of title back. what does this monkey want to tell us that we are as ugly as he is and that's why he holds a mirror up to us but he also has an enticing promise anyone who touches the mirror
5:28 pm
will become rich allegedly that is and those who touch his fingers will return to him back. so it seems i will be revisiting hydel back then. of course heidelberg castle is high on my list of things to do. also on the show our weekly vimeo comes this time from the frosty distillation of the antarctic. and in our series meet a local georgette who just shows us around her hometown abu dhabi. from hile back sold so on it's a steep climb up to the castle the number one tourist attraction in this small city on the neck a river. back
5:29 pm
castro has been intentionally kept as a ruin because it's. there are licked look creates a special atmosphere and if i take a look around i have to say that poets and tourists have every right to be impressed. with. the castle is titled there is crowning jewel a must see for romantics and millions of tourists. and french troops destroyed it during their occupation of the city in the 17th century the remains were on the brink of collapse until a savior arrived. don't come upon souls in the height of the ark come charles the guy that was a refugee from the french revolution he could he was horrified how can we use this council as a quarry and we had to preserve it but he insisted that it be kept as a rule and arguing that in this state it symbolized the very notion of romance and
5:30 pm
stars the month was. only a small portion of the council was rebuilt as a museum. and also displays the style in which the rich and powerful core 1st lived. but above all it's the imposing ruin that captivates visitors from all over the world it's been especially popular among americans since the 1924 broadway had about all title bad. tooth musical what are more of its now from broadway in the musical became the longest running show in broadway history and lots and suddenly every american knew about heidelberg introduction when this idea of the good old germany with its beer drinking students a little romance a little for a lover captivated the american imagination. the castle is surrounded by an expansive park. with its exotic
5:31 pm
plants labyrinths and growing homes it was considered an 8 through. under of the world. oh in the summer months the council takes center stage as the perfect backdrop for the city's annual theater festival. i. mean. and what better way to end a romantic day than on the banks of the matter with a view of the live show and fireworks and event town 3 times a year. by full of the scent of romance to heidelberg markets where. this is where you'll find the town hall and the church of the holy spirit.
5:32 pm
but. today the church is protestant but that wasn't always the case in the past it was a times used by catholics and then again by lutherans there were even times when both denominations celebrated mass in the church separated by a wall. this building just across from the church is a rerun they saw as jim commissioned by a cloth merchant it's no hotel it survived all the wars and fires that crevice the city and today is a list that monument. i think you've had a great taste of title back so far that's why you leave the city for a moment and take a trip to the south pole our check in. from thailand took some spectacular footage
5:33 pm
over there and he has sent us the video for that and now. enjoy the mail.
5:34 pm
hider there is the quintessential student town it's home to germany's oldest university it's over 630 years old. more than 30000 students are
5:35 pm
enrolled here. you know john v.j. . yet i'm john is one of them he's offered to show me around our 1st stop is the assembly hall it reminds me of a church that you. wouldn't know for a long time it was used for teaching but today it's mostly reserved for concerts lectures the ceremonies and it's a place frequently shown off to tourists. like me and exactly. the assembly hall is the showpiece of title beck university's main building. next vino takes me to the library nearby it houses a priceless treasure the codex mind this is. the welcome to our historic ground reading room one thing one library and not the missing shows us the precious book well it's a copy but that means we can touch it and take a closer look. this is. it's a collection of german
5:36 pm
a ballad and lyrical poetry and the works of about $140.00 singers are included here and the most famous is undoubtedly about their $145000.00 people so it's like a really big song book yeah pretty much. the book was written and illustrated between 131340 it's not just a key source of mediæval songs with its portraits of a nobleman it also provides an insight into the h. of chivalry. there are many other valuable manuscripts in the university library they're being digitalized here page by page. now anyone can check out the manuscripts on the computer for example in the reading room of the library.
5:37 pm
we move on to the canteen in the armory it was voted canteen of the year in 201-2011 it's open to students and visitors i like the atmosphere here it's the perfect place to quiz vino about life in hydra back. to the soon to be your last what do you study and headed back to duty here a bachelor's in southeast asian studies with a focus on history and ethnology especially my native sri lanka and south india. and why in hyderabad look old i think it's never several reasons heidelberg is a lovely town and has a good reputation it's internationally renowned because it's also a very compact town people say heidelberg is actually a village with the university and that pretty much hits the nail on the head and off. the tape just
5:38 pm
a bit or does it and it's not only german students here right there from all over the world. yeah you know other hand but it's all right heidelberg is very international and so was the university we frequently have students from india pakistan bangladesh who start their master's program here we also run a lot of summer and vacation courses. here so why is highly back known as the student tell us of so. i think that has a lot to do with the history of title burglary 1st he was founded in 3906 and for many decades and centuries a quarter of heidelberg population was made up of students. based on title back in math so i don't get me and then there's the old town also known as the bar area where lots of students go out to party after they've been studying hard. on. nothing happened. sounds like a place to really go crazy with that in mind i have another tip for you.
5:39 pm

5:57 pm
7 summit in the french city of spirits the focus is supposed to be on talking in a policy that the u.s. china trade dispute and huge forest fires in the amazon that's threatening to overshadow the seaside gathering. and brazil sends in the military to battle those forest fires president shavelson already pledging no tolerance from austin it's full to have started some of the outbreaks in the world's largest rain forest. plus hundreds of migrants picked up by a charity rescue ship in the mediterranean now finally landing in the new arrivals will be reading relocated in 6 other european countries for the long term agreement on like ration seems as far away as at a. time and you can see mackinnon thanks so much for joining us
5:58 pm
a standoff between riot police and protesters in hong kong has descended into violence off to what was initially a peaceful gathering as anti-government demonstrations headed into that 12th consecutive weekend thousands of demonstrators marched through the industrial cooler and tong area they were blocked by riot squads with homes and to gas protest leaders have criticized hong kong police for what they say is an over full full response to the months of demonstrators demonstrations. and i spoke to a correspondent. who's following developments in hong kong for us. and it was just a few meters away from the shopping center at the moment where we have seen the latest clashes unfolding we still police firing it's possible that some sort of protesters who have gathered in this plaza in the shopping center this thing may try to set up barricades just a repeat of the days that we saw earlier on today when this committee. we believe
5:59 pm
rubber bullets as well as protesters hundreds of process is stepped up big gun building across the big main street in hong kong what we saw with a number of the protests is something to die and bricks very quickly off with police they've been charging at the protest descending and. clearing the area and then came in to take out once again for another weekend here in hong kong. lelie an increasingly robust response by the police to the protesters and then getting criticism to the something. they are what a lot of these protests today is they that lead to becoming increasingly violent is that i'm doing all these demonstrations about one of the key to which is. from a place of the folks from one of their initial response but it's now become an independent investigation into police action one thing upset crisis in particular
6:00 pm
with one young protest that i was damaged apparently by rubber bullets during the clashes and what we're hearing today it is possible that another protest may also have been hit in the eye with the rebel but if we call them that but we don't think reports social media want that protest to being is taken into an ambulance that it is actually like this which are anything to blame the anger among many the crisis. yes the accidental thousands of people form a human chain around home call now that could be described as a peaceful protest couldn't it. well up until today we have seen that it's relatively. peaceful week especially since last sunday when i organized say 1700000 people marched peacefully on the streets it seems that there was a consensus among crisis that has to be peace but it's possible also the images of some fun and clashes between police and crisis went around the well basically condemned by beijing that if they would prove. to lead by
6:01 pm
a lot of minorities we did a lot of people prayed at the including that very striking human chain that was formed last night so can i say. more than 100000 people taking in that process that remains peaceful today a very different thing all right some conflicting messages but as you say striking seems less from that human chain shown itself from still in hong kong thanks so much. heads of state and government along with hundreds of protesters are gathering for this weekend's g. 7 summit in france leaders of 7 industrial nations in the french resort town of theorists and the official focus is tackling inequality scene but a tit for tat dispute between the u.s. and china over trade is already proving a distraction and huge forest fires raging in the amazon are also likely to overshadow the tools divisions between the countries making up the g 7 also white
6:02 pm
but for the 1st time there will be no joint statement at the end of the summit. and i'm joined now by dint of his bentley get his in on di just along the coast from the summit so about there's an awful lot going on tell us what is on the agenda this weekend what's happening today. both president through presidents of course as a global leader who can tackle global issues and he put many things on the agenda of the g. 7 the wildfires in brazil the fight against inequality boosting the fight against climate change and all sorts of things and on the weekend also a mess of protests expected against the g. 7 group of protesters are already gathering. there's a march planned today and the marches today also a little bit closer to be or it's on the it actually is 28 kilometers away from being written on sunday the protests will also try protests about or to try to get into the red zone the cordoned off part of the areas where the g 7 actually takes
6:03 pm
place. so it's a huge challenge for the french president who is also experiencing opposition here in france the yellow vests are protesting against him already since last september ok so a loss on the agenda now you mentioned the wildfires in brazil mccaw is leading the international charge against brazilian president. is calling for action to be taken on the phone. as ranging in the amazon come back here in a 2nd let's take a closer look about. from the streets of sao paulo and rio in brazil to cities in mexico career and argentina people across latin america are calling for action to save the rain forest. the long battle the green line of the world as we know it the amazon is burning. it's our future and it's infuriating that nobody is doing anything and. octo mom and i are we make ourselves aware that something must be
6:04 pm
done that the politicians have to make this a priority or simply we the human race will become extinct. a lot of it does the voice of all of us from all over latin america we have to do something and unite all of you yes you it should just be honest please robert this is what is causing so much fear and anger wildfires have been exacerbated by accelerating deforestation experts say there's a direct link between the cleared areas and the focus points of the heat this year some places are believed to have been started by farmers to create new grazing areas after brazil's president pledged to open up more of the rain forest to agriculture if you can the more a lot of animals died in the fire the jungle the forests burned last fall it's complicated i don't even know what to say it's difficult on my part to play all the crowd. president just your balls narrow initially blamed n.g.o.s for starting the
6:05 pm
fires but with no evidence he now says he'll send soldiers to help but there's no sign of that yet either this as the rain forest continues to burn and protesters continue to send their distress signals. all right so huge topic but of course these fires are just one of the issues likely to be on this weekend's agenda tell us what other important issues also will be discussed. these 7 would lead the protests which are starting to know the disarray the disagreement within the g 7 is so big that they can also be blown up by for example the us president donald trump who is opposing just everything the g 7 stand for us to so far. trade international cooperation fight against climate change is against everything the other 6 the does want to agree on and that's it's why president mccall said there will be no final conclusions normally do 7 ns was
6:06 pm
a consensus about global issues this time there would be no consensus so that's a precaution to prevent that mr trump can blow up the whole thing and this is the 7th and in this agreement that's clear already now ok disagreement disarray as ever with previous g 7 summits protests have been planned we can see protesters behind you in on di what's that plan how much disruption of a likely to bring to this event. for the protests to think they can gather 10000 people here i doubt this these crowds are not huge 10000 policemen to keep them at a it might be that the black bloc the more militant protesters will try to march on beer it's later on but that is not for sure we don't know actually what will happen over the weekend but for sure the protests will not be as huge as they were for
6:07 pm
example at the g 20 summit in hamburg 2 years ago all right again spending at an on die in front thanks so much. as to the mediterranean now and a 360 migrants have been allowed to disembark on the island of malta the refugees will now be relocated to 6 other european countries dozens of unaccompanied minors were amongst the migrants most of them from saddam at the deal and the latest tense standoff between eve governments and charity ships but a still no long term agreement in sight. there is not a lot of breathing space on the ocean viking where migrants waited for almost 2 weeks at sea water and other supplies have been running short but now the ordeal has come to an end the people on board have been allowed to go ashore in malta they will then be distributed to various e.u. countries that have agreed to take them in. of ours we feel relieved that a humane solution has now been found for the $356.00 people on board the ocean
6:08 pm
viking. but this can't stop here i must find a way to stop situations like this from happening again. the ocean viking is run by the aid organizations doctors without borders and s.o.s. mediterranean their crew has been reporting to berlin via video conference and they described distressing conditions on board and passengers suffering from severe trauma we have also spoken to and treated injuries those who have experienced or it's during their time. at the hands of traffic groups and criminals they have been exploited been subjected to what we can only describe as torture the ngos believe that despite the dangers at sea migrants will continue attempting to flee across the mediterranean and as long as they do so the ngos have said they will continue their rescue missions. because this year
6:09 pm
alone by the middle of august almost $600.00 people have died on the central mediterranean route. and for this we will not just stand by and watch while people drown who could have been held and who need to be rescued. for the passengers on the ocean viking the nightmare is over for the time being but the drama of the rescue at sea is not over in the mean time a solution still has to be found for each individual ship. sports news now and in the bundesliga top of the table top and we're in cologne on friday looking for another 3 points to extend that winning start the season the hosts didn't make it easy for them fighting tooth and nail for the 1st win of the season but in the end it was to no avail as dortmund triumphed $31.00. cologne fans were out in full force for the club's 1st top flight match since may 28th seen and as if inspired by the support the home side had the better start and
6:10 pm
forced an early corner. for dorman defending left too much space for double exacts let's open the scoring in the 29th minute. but that would be that really goes only highlights of the game. dormant turned on its head in the 70th minutes jaden center with a peach of a shot to make it 1005 the guesting grabbed the lead in the 86th minute as for kimi make it 21 with the clock running down by name time added on parker cover put the result beyond all doubt $31.00 the final score joy as they get some of the win to start the season and despair for cologne as their blues leader returns sees them lose to a much trucks. now air force one the jet carrying u.s. president donald trump to the g. summit has just touched down in france trump and his wife melania just getting into that car you can see there in driving off their meeting at the trump is meeting at
6:11 pm
the garrett get gathering in the results of barrett's deeply divided from the other leaders on a wide range of issues in particular the e.u. is basically opposed to trump's proposal to bring russia and president vladimir putin back into a group of 8 russia was thrown out of the group after an exchange crimea. it watching news live from berlin up next we're heading to chemists in east germany for the 1st time the right wing populist a.s.d. party could win the most votes in state elections that's reporter coming up for now thanks so much for what you don't need. never has it been this dark. as this facing mass extinction. you could say that hope itself is in danger. but there is a glimmer. biggest companies are uniting to create. a
6:12 pm
possibility. not only animals will be safe at home to. the lion's share. of the conservation of. earth. for saving global deals tell stories of creative people and innovative projects around the world ideas that protect the climate and boost green energy solutions. do you mean by a series of global 3000 on t.w. and online. naked kids lives in kenya it's the city which has come to symbolize the rise of the far right in eastern germany the demonstrations took place a year ago now people in chemists and across the german state of saxony are going to the polls to elect a new state parliament moment i still haven't decided who to vote for in the
6:13 pm
parliamentary elections. it may be a state election but it's attracting interest across germany the right wing populist a.f.d. party hopes to come out the big winner saxony must decide which direction it plans to take and so does nick at c.s.k. . nick has been doing martial arts since he was 8 years old he specialized in m.m.a. for mixed martial arts. a couple martial arts has probably contributed greatly to myself image it's given me a lot of self-confidence in dicey situations where you're inclined to panic or the adrenaline starts pumping. the panic or should i say that doesn't happen so much now because i just know the situation better. can't.
6:14 pm
make can't see eskies 28 years old 5 years ago he opened his own martial arts studio he knows the german m.m.a. sing well and he says it's closely connected to the neo nazi saying especially in eastern germany. help. the worst case i've experienced was at a competition and where people always booed the foreigners during the finals the crowd chanted who naral short for the right wing group hooligans nazis racists. this video is an ad for the well known right wing m.m.a. event camp dinny balloon or fun of the needles it's an annual meeting for right wing extremists in saxony disguised as a sporting event nick and his friend david know all about the need looms which
6:15 pm
right wing parties use to attract new voters. blame of the trouble is it's a recognised and consciously public right wing event they're not stupid they promote it like a normal and a fight but what doesn't belong to the sport is the showing of symbols. of playing for them who are in. the hang of the show and they hang up flags which really belong to the right wing scene. the problem is when the problem is they mix their politics with the martial arts. that's the politicians make appearances and try to manipulate people to mention someone you put he'll go to if you hear that politicians come and make speeches fishing for votes image them for nick was born in kenya it's and he spent most of his life here he's encountered nazis outside the martial arts scene too even in school he had to be careful who he made friends with the. by now you in my youth i naturally had
6:16 pm
a bit of contact with them at school to assure them that luncheon you had to decide on your attitude towards them. firstly one of them was really enter graded into the neo nazi scene so my attitude towards him was clear. in my no one he could never entirely avoid contact with neo nazis in his youth he did try to stay away from them he takes us to the place where a german of cuban descent was stabbed a year ago here is to get thinks this is the memorial for daniel h. who was murdered here on august 26th 2018. or more the voter his death made headlines across germany so did the demonstrations afterwards around the col marks monument one of the city's landmarks everybody. can know it's in 28 chain just the suspicion that asylum seeker killed daniel was enough for
6:17 pm
sex and his far right same to take to the streets beyond hook and other politicians from the i.d.f. the much side by side with neo nazis they chanted nazi slogans and did hitler salutes and attacks politicians and foreign looking passers by the police were outnumbered and under the well and. nick kid c.s.k. says the demonstrations changed his city since then it's become more polarized the different political camps are more opposed than ever. for control encampments has become more aggressive for its divided groups of friends even my own family a bit. for instance nick and his grandparents often don't see eye to why. hello there is a dish today they've come downtown to have a visit with him you get. here. then you can it's when it was still part of communist east germany much has changed since then and they don't
6:18 pm
feel safe here anymore. and it's white as an ox and i can't go out anymore at night i don't dare go into the city that's down it wasn't like that before don't beat around the bush it's simple everyone says it's the asylum seekers then if we had more law enforcement and police the feeling would be better but it's i had. defeated bessel at the police are getting huge reinforcements up in the absolute worst ok when i have something against people who have committed crimes your having to be kept here to comply with some international legal practice and internet service let's go through all when it's not possible to deport them to venice and for an american history. those are the ones who are a burden to us. since the here in the. us is skip can i was and of course there's no problem with foreigners i grew up in a system in
6:19 pm
a world that's totally globalized and the only functions through globalization that people say throw out all the foreigners but our country couldn't survive without them. so for me it's not a question of with or without foreigners things can only function if we work together with on the phone to me on. nick who really likes to talk with his grandparents especially about politics but he finds this sometimes intolerant though he'd never say that to their faces and in front of the camera they're all a bit reticent. and things like this i think back to this issue petition what do you think about the political direction changing the f.t. getting more powerful and giving the far right a boost mr dixon to assure. that but that also means that the people on the left will also get more organized and that would likely provoke more riots would see a day after the election because what if the a.f.p.
6:20 pm
comes in 1st protests will increase not only will people protest more they're unlikely to do it peacefully which will lead to rioting come pretty sure of that since you. nick and his friends enjoy a barbecue none of the my f.t. supporters and yet none of the chemist's has a far right problem they say last year's demonstrations were exaggerated by the media they more worried about the city's image shows i only learned about what happened from the media apparently people in kemet to stand for next to no reason there's a bit of latent fear them this case has been exploited by all sides. but i did so it goes to show what it was for the present in the media as if everyone in the demo was right wing but that's not how it was said the brass majority were simply concerned this finds session i found it really shocking that even in america they were reporting on kemet some what was happening here people must decide for
6:21 pm
themselves how much importance to place on it that's probably why so many people myself included are afraid to let our children play alone outdoors. which was once totally normal. but so if you're going give what you know as freedom fighters and i feel the reporting of what happened here encampments was exaggerated that it was all very extreme right wing this. for me what took place wasn't just an extreme right wing event this fall from if i don't like what's become of it was 6 theme of chemist's is image has been damaged. over his disposal tossin that i didn't interest the media at the time and it doesn't interest anyone now i did it in the midst of c o 2 and it was the hits. just ahead of the state elections the parties are making a last minute attempt to woo the voter is. at the social democrat
6:22 pm
stand nick talks with candidate. i think to see if this can do you think they can it's really has a problem with racism or is it somewhat exaggerated what is your opinion. as a standard that says i think there's no german city that's free of racism i believe that we have a big problem with how we deal with racism which is only that there are cities for instance rostock in mecklenburg for palmer which had problems with it for a very long time and also made negative headlines but they tackled it head on that's when i get the feeling that in kenya people avoid the topic because it's uncomfortable and i mean they're afraid it will harm them just to name it but this silence only makes things worse for modesty's especially. that silence is expected to benefit one party the most the a.f.d. saxony is the right wing populist stronghold so they've also put up
6:23 pm
a stand down town the a.f.p. candidate he tells nick it's the foreigners not the neo nazis who are the problem. hello i'm nick. you know my neck i'm steffen i'm running for parliament. i thought well because kim i come from chemists was born and raised here what 3 main statements does the f.t. have for cam that's the sofa caymans of disposable the biggest problem here in the city is with immigration and that's a given so you hear it from every citizen there also unsettled because we're simply not used to that. type of life from east german times yes historically but but we had vietnamese cubans etc before and if i'm right i know and that was good. but at the time they were in principle people who came here for professional training and then they went back home and took those skills with them and we have to look after our own people 1st those of worked and paid taxes here for years and from what i'm
6:24 pm
told i'm doing the discussion the a.f.p. stand is surrounded by demonstrators carrying brightly colored umbrellas it's a protest action to show that kenya is a colorful and diverse place but the a.f.d. members don't take the protests seriously the atmosphere is still quite relaxed yet the incident shows candidates is divided. i'm sure i. asked my view thanks for the talk there were some good arguments made but as i said a few opinions that just don't fit with my world view and isn't my baby. nick kid c s he won't vote for the a.f.p. that much is clear yeah but he's afraid that the right wing populist could triumph he longs for a chemist's that's governed by tolerance and respect the way opponents treat one another in martial arts. right i tried
6:25 pm
i thank i. powerhouse turns 100. 100 years of moderately stark temperature. 100 years of functionalism n.p.r. isn't. what's behind the legend. we asked the experts about the. next. isolated. dirt poor. and a nuclear power. north korea. but who supplies the country with its expensive nuclear technology and who's behind kim jong un shadowy financial system

7:18 pm
a construction site in the desert of kuwait or would try to end up with oh there was a good for me it wasn't about whether i wanted to do it time was running out i wanted to leave quickly so that we could get something to eat as our leader kim il sung died in july 994 and starting a year later in may 995 the state was no longer able to provide the normal food ration people started to panic. this was the 1st time they had reduced the russians feel good i had a 2 year old daughter over there in order to leave you had to be married and have children if you don't have any children they won't let you out i thought a family of 4 or 5 can live for at least 6 months on my salary of over $120.00 a month if i sent it to pyongyang with her with a new crew. and after 2 months we asked why we weren't getting paid hundreds when they said they had not been instructed by the party to pay our salary for the party
7:19 pm
in north korea was kim jong il our commander in chief. that answer silenced us either they were hundreds of workers had to keep their mouths shut. we kept on working at night to using our flashlights. to fight off sleep and just carry on. i kept working like that for 5 months and all that time i didn't get paid. i felt cheated and. sending workers abroad was an idea 1st introduced in 1974 a gigantic network of clandestine companies and financial constructs gradually evolved all of them with one sole goal earning money for office 39. this man was likewise born in the north in pyongyang in the early 2000 he was sent to
7:20 pm
singapore he earned tens of millions of dollars for north korea as a representative of pyongyang's north east asia bank in 2003 he was suspected of having passed on information about the regime's finances he fled to south korea today the former banker works for his new country's intelligence agencies he supports them in their struggle against the regime he wants war eternal allegiance to our main goal is to make foreign cash and this foreign cash business is secret. complete the secret office number for ny and continued creating that the system is setup like it's all north korean institutions where these foreign cash is generated there is to report it to can to the top and then should bring that should pay that in cash to
7:21 pm
family and now it turns on and before communal so she gather all this and then spend it or according to his priorities so $2.00 economies one is 2 family economy and the other one is the national economy run by the cabinet and run by their so called you know central planning so to family i call it you know royal court economy royal court economy they possess all the best profitable businesses is totters this department stores you know those services in the rest trunks they are making money for in cash and then it also goes to continue now into. soul separate economy. the money that you make will never a good central economy not. some for bang. finance
7:22 pm
ministry and trade bank they can never. what pope their nose into our business is in that they can never they can not asking anything can get up or and then really a look at them so let's say a 1000000000 years dollars a year to get that cash in cash and then she use that now nuclear missile program if you know consumes a lot of money it's from jim's own pocket there are different world careers you know at most 150000 maybe 50000 in russia and a little more in china and other receivers scattered around the world so true than 50 thought and they make a lot of money there's only. so 70 percent 80 percent of the
7:23 pm
salary cap. and sent to the state and the party so if they make all of them a $100.00. the amount is a much smaller man knowing it. put in your own. pair were smug $1515000000.00 a month they don't make only 100 years bucks a year month in they make more maybe several 100 at least so a lot of money is going to control. the volume of their cash income consume one's fund increased dramatically in the past in the past 20 years in the past 20 years or so or you can buy more and he can. to continue this in
7:24 pm
a nuclear and missile program in the colony younger than the mother does or not of the home you know specially in places where we have a special agreement in places like eastern europe southeast asia africa. we have workers everywhere. and poland and ukraine though pakistan mongolia the big distant. one. while traditional your dwellings dot the modern city scape the noise from the pneumatic hammers is on the press and every day the concrete expanses continue to spread a little more in the mongolian capital. for a period of over 70 years the country had a communist regime the city's grand monuments honoring the eastern bloc are a legacy of that era but after the collapse of the soviet union mongolia switched to the western capitalist camp people left rural regions in droves for the city's
7:25 pm
tar is an urgent need of new housing but lacks sufficient manpower to build it the government has therefore been hiring workers from china vietnam and north korea for reinforcement the work is assigned the same way in each construction site. the mongolian workers are used for exteriors jobs by the better qualified north koreans for example take care of the interior. the workers from pyongyang are under observation day and night we want to approach them discreetly and 1st just send our interpreter. hello hello to them that all the north koreans working today sure. do they sleep here yes. and they never go out just to go shopping that's all. and they eat and sleep here yes inside.
7:26 pm
north korea goes to extreme lengths to prevent its workers from coming into contact with the outside world and discovering a reality that is other than the one depicted in the daily propaganda they're only allowed to go out in groups so that they can keep an eye on each other. but in the narrow market aisles of we spot a north korean worker who appears to be on his own. can we talk while we look at the shoes or. yes. when did you come here to mongolia. 3 years ago. that's a long time yes and when are you going back home soon in a month and have you and bunch money no i've not earned a lot of mongolian money and why not and she paid i didn't get much not much you
7:27 pm
know i've been working but i never got any money. they must be bad people has a lot of bad people around really. do you have family north korea how many childrens are there. i have one child. my wife was pregnant when i left i have never seen much else. so 3 years old 3 yes boy or girl i got a letter saying it was a boy i'm desperate to go and see my son. the workers usually have 3 year contracts and are not allowed to go home during a time only very few use their stay abroad to defect due to their family still living in north korea they are all too aware that they would never see them again. is mongolia covering up the presence of these workers within its borders neither the government nor the companies employing them were prepared to talk to us but allegedly there are 1200 north koreans in the country they are there legally at the
7:28 pm
invitation of the mongolian government. the companies transfer the salaries directly to the north korean embassy and. from where the money is then confiscated by the regime in pyongyang a fraction of the somme a few dozen euro's a month at most is paid to the workers who use it to support their families in north korea. the construction workers are not the only money makers for the regime it also dispatches loggers to the forests of siberia peasants to farms young young even exports doctors the regime's most lucrative source of income acupuncturists and chiropractors are sent abroad to open practices there what they earn however goes to the regime back home and there are 3 of them. would lead to into north korean waters.
7:29 pm
when we think we're here in those final i guess north korea. well yes then we're still best we once in a way is our in the world the do here for how long are we near the will. the doctors are not allowed to talk without permission from the embassy. in. north korea reportedly generates 450000000 euros a year from remittances earned by its citizens secretly working abroad. no records are kept of these secret funds and accounts documentation could potentially be used as evidence receipts bank transfers and internal notes are systematically destroyed on the orders of the kim family. this enables
7:30 pm
the regime to deny their existence in front of the international community but above all to the starving population back home they are not to get wind of the millions the kim family earns at their expense. to them both ends of the record when i was a worker too. i didn't get anything for 6 or 8 months. i worked myself to the bone. so i reckoned why not help myself. this man spent many years in siberia prior to his defection he worked his way up to management level feeling remorse he wanted to break his years of silence in the hope that his testimony could help other former foreign workers who are still prisoners of the system or. where we moved out of the realm of the people position above the
7:31 pm
workers siphon off huge sums of money from those salaries for themselves sort of let's say our bosses land a contract for 10000000 when they'll tell us that it's 7000000 and we tell our foreman that it's even lower maybe 5000000. so even then we're still able to transfer our mandatory share to the regime another trick is to negotiate 50 men for a job then we arrange to use only 20 and we send the rest elsewhere that means we can put aside a pile of money for ourselves. in a good month how much did you earn. around $20000.00 you were in one month yes. do you know how much office $39.00 earns per year and how much of that goes into developing missiles. with. bated nobody knows that. that's the most strictly guarded secret of all
7:32 pm
nobody in office 39 can say neither the amount for the office workers nor the costs for their workers or any other figure. if they were taught watered it all plans to acquire nuclear weapons were 1st conceived by the regime back in 1953 during the korean war after the us threatened to deploy its nuclear arsenal against the country since coming to power in 2011 kim jong un has launched 85 missiles and conducted for nuclear tests twice as many as his father and grandfather combined the test missiles were fired over the sea of japan or in the direction of the pacific with the capability to send nuclear warheads as far as california chung young now insists that washington would never dare to attack north korea again. on november 29th 2017 north korea surprised the world with the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile kim jong un told his people that the country was
7:33 pm
now a nuclear power and boasted that it could deliver a strike anywhere in the u.s. at the same time a group of 8 men of different nationalities convened at the new york headquarters of the united nations where a race against time began they comprised experts on rocket technology finance aviation and shipping experts some were from the civilian sector others from intelligence agencies their work is top secret their goal to dry up the secret money sources of the kim family for their own safety no photos exist of this expert committee only hugh griffiths the group's head since 2014 was willing to talk on camera these rockets that years ballistic missile relate to technology that was being recovered by the south korean navy ships close off. when the wreckage has washed out when they've recovered it and then they've invited the panel to inspect this this step and once we've inspected the 3 we know
7:34 pm
down the serial numbers we take photographs and then in many cases we're able to trace back. just sticks of procurement chain. so that's the rocker and then we have what's left of that. says one of the 1st assume see killer is a cluster of them around. you want to obscure this. well our investigations show the percentage all the components used in iraq some missiles. have been sourced approach these goods will be exported in the 1st instance to other countries in asia to business and to such as singapore. hong kong. so that
7:35 pm
to a large multinational company based in say europe for selling the goods everything appears to be an old of those no north korean trace on the only official paperwork in addition to research work the committee wields its own weapon the economy they devised sanctions that became progressively more severe in order to isolate north korea. we waited 5 months for official permission to fly to north korea the north korean diplomats didn't want us to film in winter fearing that the power outages might leave a bad impression finally in late march 2800 with temperatures rising again it happened we were granted permission to travel by train to north korea via china and the border town of dunn. we find a country where time appears to have stood still a country that has been largely cut off from the outside world since 1953.
7:36 pm
every inch of arable land is farmed. meat. everything serves to feed the nation. for 7 hours the fields roll by to this day still farmed using only hand tools and manual labor. most of north korea's nuclear power plants are located in this region our route takes us close to 3 year ania mines a number of underground facilities and also the new nuclear research center which went operational in 1965 with the help of the soviet union it is the heart of the country's nuclear program. our
7:37 pm
escorts await us in the capital pyongyang. we're now entering a world reserved for the privileged section of the population. these streets and boulevards serve $3000000.00 residents 10 percent of the population the most loyal supporters of the regime a special permit is required to enter the city our 2 guides accompany us from dawn until late at night they've been tasked with showing us that john young despite all the sanctions imposed by the united nations is no longer some economically crippled city with a poverty stricken population all thanks to the new national heroes the scientists . this architect spent 8 years studying in france after leaving the a cold us are now for architecture in paris he returned to north korea in 2010 today he's one of the best architects in the capital designing skyscrapers for the new elite. he
7:38 pm
cited the costly. this building was constructed in the us than here and just under 8 months and that again an economically challenging time for koreans like the wolf eagle but they still managed to complete it all we want to show that we can living continue to develop and can afford everything we needed a dog and promoting scientific advancement plays an extremely important role in our own development to preserve the whole of the will of all the residents here have occupations in science and technology. including teaching staff if it meant everything else that the celts jaso if they close and they don't send you all the stuff. you. know. how low. can i keep my shoes on yes. yes hello.
7:39 pm
8 months. look at the pictures. they speak volumes there is our esteemed leader personally giving people decorations. for koreans he's the most glorious occasions when i. was a woman. i was really happy when we moved in here i could only cry and think about his love the marshall devotes a lot of time to the scientists and they reward him with their industriousness my husband has been a scientist for 30 years. her husband teaches fluid mechanics at the technical university of kim cheick the apartment they were assigned has 200 square meters of floorspace the regime also provides the
7:40 pm
furniture. not everyone in junge young lives in modern high rises like this one but this family is far from an exception every year since kim jong un came to power he has built and inaugurated a new residential district that his involved 50 new residential blocks sprouting up within the space of a few months they're intended for the scientists and their families who have rendered extraordinary services for the regime one of these high rises is home to an architect's office serving kim jong. un's excellent work. for. the police or for the full course there's always more work to be done there are always more projects we never enough architects this is in itself a huge building site everyone is tied up in at least 2 or 3 projects and is working nonstop. but it's still not really enough that's what we do all nighters.
7:41 pm
given the international situation and all the sanctions doesn't that hamper construction no no no not at all and i don't see how that would have an impact on the other day i saw a lot of construction sites in europe where work was immediately suspended after a crisis. but here we carry on working despite the growing number of projects in the pipeline we're not afraid of anything we keep on making progress regardless. god was in the. how is north korea able to finance this construction boom has it been able to shrug off the sanctions out on the streets the standardized socialist dress code has been lent a little more color in the last 3 years the mood seems almost relaxed and yet the regime still governs its people with an iron fist. even the slightest critical
7:42 pm
gesture or word of disapproval will soon find some one in one of the country's many camps for political prisoners since kim jong un has been in power however there have been signs of a reorientation the orders now are to ensure that the economy evolves at the same pace as the nuclear program. the one who cut all this to size. but be careful. down there you have to cut it straight look this is not straight. we built this entire set of ourselves and thanks to these korean built machines we've been able to automate a number of jobs and also reduce our power consumption. as a result we've almost doubled our production capacity everything here is
7:43 pm
a joint product of the experts from the academy of science and the researchers at kim il sung university. where does the material for the shoes come from. through them we're unable to import materials due to the strategy of our enemies so we produce everything ourselves. that involves checking which components we have available so that we can make our own shoes ok small town is most of. the key factors for this economic revival innovation and adaptation the goal is to person fear and prove to the world that the country doesn't need anyone else. we have solar panels we have them installed on practically all factory roofs. they generate up to $400.00 kilowatts of electricity. our factories need
7:44 pm
a capacity of only $300.00 kilowatts. that means the electricity generated from the solar panels is easily enough to keep our factory running despite the sanctions and the isolation. you can. the shoe factory is one of a number of model factories that kim jong un has had built for each sector of industry they all include a digital control center with a direct connection to pyongyang's universities and research centers more model factories are to be set up across the country. i. the regime dictates which roles everyone is assigned the country's economy and society are centrally planned right down to the fate of each individual. young north koreans know as soon as they're in elementary school
7:45 pm
how their lives will pan out depending on their abilities their family background and the needs of the party the state selects their career many end up in the military the country has a standing army of $1000000.00 soldiers in north korea men are subject to a minimum compulsory military service totaling 10 years those who manage to be admitted to kim il sung university the country's most prestigious college are usually exempt this is where the next generation of engineers economists bankers and businessmen are educated the future personnel of office 39. this facility was founded by a commander in chief with the noble idea of training men and women for leadership positions in the korea of tomorrow our d.l. leader kim jong il sent us a letter in december 2009 saying keep your feet on the ground and look at the world
7:46 pm
combine a noble spirit with the wealth of knowledge and become the supporting structure for my late father's revolution make sure that the whole world looks up to the korea of kim il sung. is north korea's economic upswing and economic miracle a fire. fake conflict to keep the people in the dark about the new wave of sanctions threatening to bring the country to its knees the official figures cannot be verified unable to talk to citizens directly we can't say what they think and feel all we can take away are our general observations. traveling across the country the impression you get is that a brighter future awaits following the famine of the 1990 s. which claimed the lives of between 600001 1000000 people the streets have no cars but some dashes of new color life is hard but seemingly not as hard as it used to be. kim jong un spent part of his childhood under
7:47 pm
a false identity in switzerland did he bring the dream of modernization and opening up with him from europe. the young dictator possesses a nuclear bomb that protects him home and abroad and also consolidate his power but where as his father and grandfather built statues and palaces he builds railways bowling alleys swimming pools museums of natural history and leisure parks facilities no longer just serving the elite cultural advances in science and industry opium for a people who are for now still in all of new developments the aim to reinforce the dictatorship now in its 3rd generation. in a sign of the times on this evening the colors of north korea shine in splendor for the 1st time after dark is north korea getting outside help russia and above all china vote in favor of u.n. sanctions while at the same time continuing to trade with north korea an overthrow
7:48 pm
of kim jong un's regime is not something they want to see. the country's secret coffers and assets keep growing even in places where you'd least expect it such as berlin in the heart of europe. in 2016 the german authorities began trying to close down this youth hostel located on the grounds of the north korean embassy. since 2008 the rent totaling more than $38000.00 euros a month has gone directly to the kim family. germany has terminated the lease but the owners of the hostel have steadfastly refused to vacate the premises. do you know whether office 39 makes money in france or germany. and france or germany sure. ground in
7:49 pm
a little and there are no workers in those countries because of the stringent laws pointed to it but one thing they do have is money and wealth. the ones with a a little. north korea buys and sells real estate parental or speculative profit a little. if they were to do direct business in those countries and openly show that our company is a north korean company we'd immediately be subject to a tax on it. we rent out apartments. nobody knows who the owner is really we're just collect the rents. will do you know the names of these firms as i don't know if i were to tell you that they'd end up on the sanctions list right away. just yes north korea is an awful dictatorship but the people who serve the regime faithfully like me or my friends or even the bosses are
7:50 pm
just doing our job that someone didn't know. and joining us is illegal perhaps what they do is in itself banned but there is still a code of honor between us. then you go to. do they earn money in the us. not that i know of. but we do do everything we can to relieve them of money. we have technology kids hacking that includes blackmailing software that north korea hacks into the us infrastructure industry or digital companies. we can't analyze or make much use of the data as such we just hack our way in. and then demand money in return for guaranteeing that we will keep the data to ourselves.
7:51 pm
that. it's basically north korea taking digital data as ostrich. you know stopping this in of the real trade with china coal and iron ore and other stuff you know this is the real ascension so it took only 7 months but it's there we cannot stop everything how can this top or north koreans. how many shadow companies and operatives are there how far does their network truly extend and what kind of danger do they pose. of final reports the security council we've documented north korean weapons and prohibited military training programs and dozens of african and middle eastern member states in mozambique the contracts one of the contracts we saw was worth more than 6
7:52 pm
$1000000.00 intense and near the contract was worth a similar amount in euro's a little more i think maybe $12000000.00. so it's all about the money part of the problem with ballistic missiles is that. the technology wasn't supplied to all the countries that want to technology so the north koreans stepped in and this is very alarming that in sums of proliferation there was this. new kilo. now a new killer facility in syria that was set up with north korea and assistance and this is this is the kind of activity that i know concerns a lot of people. in the north koreans also have
7:53 pm
a huge stockpile of chemical weapons as well. it's been 20 years since lim ill fled the kuwaiti desert where he'd been working on construction sites in the meantime he's become a father again here in seoul he has 2 sons they know they also have a big sister somewhere on the other side of the border. you know larry i think about it the more i wonder what it is that made me who i am pretty that if it were a normal regime i would never have run away. and this mismanaged system and the forced me to make that terrible decision. once a month in seoul refugees from the north meet up in a christian center in order to remember their families and their people back home almost like the orphans of the man who was once their leader they turn to their god
7:54 pm
to rediscover a purpose in their lives. while in the north those taking orders from the dictators continue to work in the shadows at home and abroad to guarantee the survival of the regime in. fine dining extradition to the world's trade is trying to hold this tornado close to sure pneumocystis celebrate the art of good to. find out what's behind them from what joined up. to. 30 minutes potty defeat you.
7:55 pm
s.o.s. europe the european idea is in crisis. if it's to have a future it will need champions young champions. for activists who are country. are fighting for the dream of united europe. do they stand a chance. can they save the european idea. with the market i need to stand up for european values and contribute to something important coming up see if. the future of europe starts september 2nd

on d w. this is d w news live from berlin world leaders gathered for the g. 7 summit in the french city of. u.s. president donald trump flies in sharply at odds with the other leaders of america's trade dispute with china and huge forest fires in the amazon are threatening to overshadow the gathering. brazil sends in the army to battle those forest fires president shire bolsa naro pledges no tolerance for arsonists thought to have started some of the outbreaks in the world's largest great forest. plus. riot
7:57 pm
squads again confront protesters in hong kong over their demands to protect the territories independence from china over the latest from our correspondent in the tears. comic spicer thanks for joining us leaders of a deeply divided group of 7 leading industrial countries are meeting in the french resort city of the heat's president donald trump is out of step with the rest efforts to reach consensus looks set to founder over thorny issues including global trade climate change and taxing the big technology companies divisions are so deep that for the 1st time in more than 40 years there is to be no joint communique at the end of the g. 7 summit. and i'm joined now by dave garrett mattie's india it's york is the 1st time since $975.00 that there's going to be no communique at this summit
7:58 pm
why is that. i say really this is a precautionary measure that the french president has taken a president here who's hosting the g 7 who is in damage control mode ever since president donald trump the u.s. president walked away from that final declaration at the last meeting in canada and so what the french president has done he has really broadened the agenda he has brought in all sorts of other topics like the environment like development on like injustice in the world in order to if you want paper over the rifts that are so clearly there when it comes to topics like the environment the french the the parents of a climate accord or for instance the iran nuclear deal something that is very important to european partners here in the g. 7 but something that he walked away from so they're going to do a lot of talking but without a final communique or agreement for action is there any point meeting. well look
7:59 pm
at the g. 7 has been around for more than 4 decades basically and it is the forum to organize international trade it is the forum to organize international relations if you want this is where the rules of how this system that we're all living in is has been hammered out this is how the problems can mutually be solved and the french president is very keen to produce some sort of tangible results and and in his 1st meeting with president on the drum he had some no hope for optimism because after all donald trump said the weather is great there's very friendly people around and there is great things that can be accomplished and well we'll have to see if that is true in the run up to this meeting the e.u. used trade pact with south americas group that has been threatened if brazil's government doesn't take action let's have a listen to what e.u. council president donald had to say earlier the burning of the rain forest has become another depressing find of our time we of course stand by
8:00 pm
medical through agreement which is both about protecting the climate and environment about that this is hard to imagine how mining is both a ratification by the repeal contras as long as the brazilian government allows for the destruction of the green of that. do you see the e.u. actually taking this kind of action against brazil. it's a crucial role it's very very high on their agenda and so that is why also the german foreign minister has emphasized that it is a real problem also looking towards that the trade deal doll just was also clear in may in saying that this trade deal with the markets will states also will help the environment but at the same time backing the french president so yes i would say
8:01 pm
you know the europeans have worked with the mexico states for more than 2 decades on that deal if that paper lies a little longer on the table until these key problems are sorted out that is something that europeans would be prepared to do ok your gratis and yeah it's thanks for that. as we've just heard the g 7 is pressing for more action on the wildfires raging in the amazon rain forest brazil is sending in the army to tackle the blazes but opponents say it's too little too late. from the streets of sao paulo and rio in brazil to cities in mexico career and argentina people across latin america are calling for action to save the rain forest. along merrily the green line of the world as we know it is burning it's our home it's our future and it's infuriating that nobody is doing anything. automatically then we make ourselves the addict something must be done look at the politicians have to
8:02 pm
make this a priority or simply we the human race will become extinct. this is the choice of all of us from all over latin america we have to do something and unite all of you yes you shouldn't just be simply and this is what is causing so much fear and anger wildfires have been exacerbated by accelerating deforestation experts say there's a direct link between the cleared areas and the focus points of the heat this year some places are believed to have been started by farmers to create new grazing areas after brazil's president pledged to open up more of the rain forest to agriculture if you can to market a young beautiful commodity a lot of animals died in the fire. the jungle the forest is burnt it's complicated i don't even know what to say it's difficult. president jet your pulse naru initially blamed n.g.o.s for starting the fires but
8:03 pm
with no evidence he nice says he'll send soldiers to help but there's no sign of that yet either this as the rain forest continues to burn and protesters continue to send their distress signals. trying to take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world. north korea has again launched missiles in defiance of international efforts to denuclearize the country the missiles are thought to be short range ballistic rockets like these they were fired fired off north korea's east coast into the sea j.s launch is the latest following stalled disarmament talks with the united states. thousands of people have marched across algeria to call for free elections and an end to military influence in the government opponents have pushed for political reform since mass protests forced the resignation of president abdullah seas in april. and an unmanned russian soyuz spacecraft has failed to dock with the international

8:05 pm
see just behind me that the remnants of that clash is still that there are still barricades along this street this is usually an extremely busy thoroughfare through hong kong very quiet tonight dr is aware of the clashes that took place to earlier on the sea evening now from what we can tell protesters and police have largely despair but we did see another very violent day of clashes today for the 1st time in over a week tear gas was back on the streets of hong kong from what we can tell it was fired in several locations we were at one spot where hundreds of people gathered around a police station and what we saw was a number of the protest is throwing bricks stones plastic bottles at police police then sent out a warning using the flags that they often put up saying if you continue we will use force and then we saw them charging at those protesters sending them scattering and the tear gas was then fired so it has been another violent day here in hong kong mull could be different to some of the protests that we saw earlier this week which
8:06 pm
was launched the people. how would you characterize the overall police reaction to the protests. for the protest the protesters themselves say that police have been extremely heavy handed in the treatment of the demonstrates his one thing that they pointed to in particular is one protester who's i was damaged by a rubber bullets a lot of the protesters that we've seen since have been covering that i is with my patches in a market solidarity with that particular protest another round rima circulating on social media and several images as well suggesting another protest today was hit in the eye with a rebel but it we can't confirm that ourselves but it certainly will inflame a lot of the i'm gay here among protest is aimed at the police here in hong kong. and yesterday charlotte we saw pictures of thousands of people forming a human chain around hong kong were you there.
8:07 pm
we were indeed organizers say 100000 people took part in the protests i have to say from what we saw it was stunning what these protesters managed to do they lined up along pathways hand in hand many of them holding their torches that waving and and showing that they were capable of holding peaceful protests after a lot of the violent clashes that we've seen in recent weeks that seem to have been a consensus up until today among protests is that they needed to send an image to the wild that they were to remain peaceful off the protests to be so particularly at the airport last week where a number of the protesters were seen being. extremely violent those images went around the beijing jumped on them to say look this movement is led by a violent minority and the protesters here seem to want to disprove that sedate remained largely peaceful at that protest yesterday and did 3 months of last week

8:13 pm
nuclear physicist andre as he's radiation counter tells him every time here moscow's pauli metals factory started dumping nuclear waste on this scale in the 1940 s. and fifty's when the area in the south of moscow wasn't yet part of the city so far the radioactive material is contained under a layer of clay but the activist insists that the plant highway could cut straight through the nuclear waste. they might start digging up the soil and moving it around without taking into account that it's contaminated it will be released into the atmosphere and anyone who prays that song will get radioactive nuclei into their lungs. he has been giving informal tours of the spot to journalists and. local residents like are worried about what could end up in the river and in their long. night at this nuclear waste to say about they aren't going to touch it then
8:14 pm
it's not to worrying but knowing that they're going to build a right here and all this waste could slip down the hill that's really scary. says locals have always known about the nuclear waste in their neighborhood the site is partially closed off but the riverside nearby is popular with the residents. of view from above shows just how urban the area is the nuclear waste site is slotted between a park and moscow's main river the mosque now the plan is to build a fly over parallel to the railway bridge here construction is slated to begin later this year the city says the new road will ease traffic in moscow and they insist that construction is safe and effective but. the soil will not be disturbed as support for the flyover will be built its foundations will be up to 5 metres below the surface we've carried out studies of the sort of at that depth and there were no radiation measurements above the norm that on the road when i touch the

for germany party is set to make significant gains. a standoff between riot police and protesters in hong kong has descended into violence tens of thousands of anti-government demonstrators began their 12th weekend of protests peacefully marching through the industrial tongue region but they were soon stopped and chased by squads of riot police armed with baton and tear gas protest leaders have criticised hong kong police for what they say is an over forceful response to months of demonstrations. our correspondent charlotte pill is in hong kong and has been following the protests there charlotte you watched protesters get dispersed earlier today are they regrouping again. nic i'm on the main raid right now where one of those clashes unfold and i'm sure you can see just behind me that the remnants of that clash is still that there are still barricades along this street this is usually an extremely busy thoroughfare through hong kong
9:05 pm
very quiet tonight dr is aware of the clashes that took place to earlier on the sea evening now from what we can tell protesters and police have launched me just but we did see another very violent day of clashes today for the 1st time in over a week tear gas was back on the streets of hong kong from what we can tell it was fired in several locations we were at one spot where hundreds of people gathered around a police station and what we saw was a number of the protest is throwing bricks stones plastic bottles at police police then sent out a warning using the flags that they often put up saying if you continue we will use force and then we saw them charging at those protesters sending them scattering and the tear gas was then fired so it has been another violent day here in hong kong markedly different to some of the protests that we saw earlier this week which was launched peaceful and how would you characterize the overall police reaction to the
9:06 pm
protests. for the protest the protesters themselves say that police have been extremely heavy handed in the treatment of the demonstrates his one thing that they pointed to in particular is one protester whose i was damaged by a rubber bullets load of the protesters that we seeing since have been covering that i is with my patches in a market solidarity with that particular protest another arima circulating on social media and several images as well suggesting another protester today was hit in the eye with a rebel but we can't confirm that ourselves but it certainly will inflame a lot of the anger here among protesters aims at the police here in hong kong. and yesterday charlotte we saw pictures of thousands of people forming a human chain around hong kong were you there. we were indeed organizers say 100000 people took part in that protest i have to say
9:07 pm
from what we saw it was stunning what these protesters managed to do they lined up along the path ways hand in hand many of them holding their torches that waving and and showing that they were capable of holding peaceful protests after a lot of the violent clashes that we've seen in recent weeks that seem to have been a consensus up until today among protests is that they need to send an image to the wild that they were to remain peaceful off of protests that we saw particularly at the airport last week where a number of the protesters were seen being. extremely violent those images went around the world beijing jumped on them to say look this movement is led by a violent minority and the protesters here seem to want to disprove that it's a day remained largely peaceful at that protest yesterday and did 3 months of last week ok. reporting from hong kong thanks for that.
