5:18 am
greece had trouble. let's get more reaction. people reassured that the crisis won't now spread. the feeling is among some quarters that now that the irish have accepted the bail out, the focus will shift. the finance ministry has said that the agreement there would reduce uncertainty. not saying that the banking system is a problem but saying that the system doesn't have those kinds of problems but are committed to the whole range. they are very well aware that whatever the government does
5:19 am
doesn't necessarily have a dire impact. it is difficult to know how they will develop in the future depending on what remarks are made by officials in europe. >> a reminder of thescale of that portugal. >> the government says next year, it should get through and reduce it to 4.6. the problem is that economics are very weak. the fear is that the economy takes a nose dive in the new year, once that goes up and income tax increases as well. they'll find difficulty hitting the target. it is a bit on the edge and watching closely how it

5:21 am
mine. all told, 2d minors have been pulled out. most of them were naked and then wrapped up in blankets. this is a good story for a country whose mining industry is the most dangerous in the world. 5 or 7 of rescuers got trapped themselves gives you some indication of perhaps how poorly prepared authorities are when it comes to these types of operations. more than 2500 minors were
5:22 am
killed in accident last year. they are making improvements. if you look at the figures over the past ten years, the number of casualties has seen a dramatic increase. authorities will take part from that. minors will say a lot more still needs to be done to improve the company's record. >> a light hearted remark has ended up costing him his job. the japan minister has had to redesign after joking that his job was easy. >> we have the details. >> he said his job was easy. the reason why was if he was

5:26 am
frightened. we know children are very scared. >> do you think his motive was to offer some assurance or it was a political move? >> i think he was trying to reassure children. we can't hideaway from the truth and facts which is it's one of the worst places to be born a child in the world. many children don't go to school. half of afghan children are mall nourished. many more die because of their fifth birthday. diarrhea. it's outrageous that children die from diarrhea. these diseases make it unsafe for children in afghanistan.
