7:08 pm
most important thing for us is to help the passengers and crew on board we ask everyone who was on board the train to contact their next of kin. or if someone doesn't have a cell phone they should ask to use someone else's even if i obviously am even in the meantime cell phone footage taken onboard shows some of the damage the police have now confirmed six dead and sixteen injured. at the time of the crash the bridge had been closed to car and truck traffic because of the strong winds it's therefore unclear why the freight train from deutsche bahn was allowed on to the crossing considering it was also hauling trucks semi trailers. actually some of the other stories making news around the world parts of finland have experienced the strongest winds have recorded in the country as a powerful winter storm swept through from the north tens of thousands of people have been without power cell phone and transport services disrupted and the authorities have urged people to stay indoors. and covering us republican side is

but war that beijing reserve the right to use force. for twenty eight was one of the toughest years of i'm going to america's long political career it took the german chancellor months to form a new government she faced stiff opposition from populists at home and abroad and after taking a blow in the polls she opted to step down as chair of her conservative party so will twenty nineteen be any easier is a look ahead. so far i'm going to america as gradual exit from politics appears to be going to plan but remaining silent slow for the coming year won't be that easy with a whole list of potential pitfalls. in an eclipse come kavin by our macro got the successor party leader she wanted a k.-k. as she is known is a much needed ally who will help keep merkel's in the party critics say. but the
7:11 pm
political comeback of merkel's former rival free to fish net has loosened her hold on the party mats aimed to join the magical cabinet has been rebuffed for now but many back his claim to power direct threat to our dilemma. europe's crunch time elections in may could also be a turning point for the stability of germany's government. if and of america's coalition partner the social democrats take yet another beating at the polls they may see no other way forward than withdrawing from the government that would most likely and i'm going to americans time as chancellor. those polls are expected to see a further rise of the populist right across europe an angle americal is set to feel those effects back home. here in germany the f.t.
7:12 pm
publicly closed ranks with the rightwing extremist during street protests in the eastern city of candidates last summer united by a determination to end the magical era the populist movement in germany make gain new momentum. with three eastern states going to the polls this coming all to the f.t.c. will have to prove whether it can become the strongest political force in any of these states. if the far right are targeted for germany manages to replicate its general election results from twenty seventeen it could become the strongest political force in saxony defeat for the c.d.u. and yet more state elections would also be seen as a rebuke for chancellor merkel's leadership. all of those factors will also play a role in the half time assessment of the coalition partner of anglo mackerels
7:13 pm
government the social democrats wrote an exit clause into their coalition deal if they trigger that anger merkel could crash out of her last term in office as get more. correspondent linda craig welcome linda will angela merkel still be in charge a year from now president. so difficult to say you heard how many factors could influence her ability to stay in power if germany were to hold new elections for example because the junior coalition partner in the social democrats did decide to leave the government certainly i think we would not see her remain at the helm but very very difficult to say whether that will in fact occur what we can see is that there is no majority in the at the moment if you look at the polls two thirds of germans say that they are content to see her serve out her term only one third would like to see her leave earlier and germans do have
7:14 pm
a penchant for stability so i think that may argue in favor of her sticking it out we saw in article was although the condoms ranged against her at home what about on the international stage i will tell you you can she expect that an interesting one germany will now be on the security council as a non permanent member both the chancellor and her foreign minister have said that they are absolutely committed to using that position to really advocate for multilateral solutions to complex problems those problems include and they have named them climate they want to really push for stronger climate leadership trade germany as a major exporting power stands to lose a lot from a further intensification of trade disputes it will be looking to strengthen the world trading world trade organization the w t o and the rule based trading order russia ukraine another very big topic for germany where it has taken leadership in
7:15 pm
the past that undoubtedly will involve some challenges this year as well and then various challenges on the front of security and arms control ranging from a possible u.s. withdrawal from the i.n.f. treaty that's designed to control medium range nuclear weapons possibly stationed in the. central europe and germany certainly germany will be looking to hinder that any further escalation in that area and of course any fallout from further hostilities in syria that let new lead to a new wave of migrants all of those could be issues on which germany will need to and want to make its voice heard within the context of this new role in the security council plenty of challenges for germany abroad and indeed at home but one wonders kind of government led by a good america will rise to those challenges there must be many who see her as a lame duck. indeed that is often said but you could also say that
7:16 pm
a lame duck is free to start working for the history books as it were to really be looking to make the kind of decisions that will solidify america's place in those history books and interestingly enough she did devote a good part of her new year's address this year to the international challenges and mentioned the need for germany to take more responsibility to stand up for its advocacy of multilateral solutions and whatever challenges are out there domestically and internationally the fact is that this remains a very prosperous country with a majority of citizens who are committed to multilateral perspectives and with a strong sense that germany needs to be in the boat with others there isn't a real strong nationalist demagogue on the horizon apart from that far right party
7:17 pm
that was mentioned in the report but for all of those reasons i think we can look to a certain degree of leadership and stability here still from germany and from uncle americal but in the quote. so the hope is here then taking up the business let's start with the stock exchange is how they are responding to the new year not to get seems like they might still be a little bit hung over fail because global stocks have had a rather wobbly start to twenty ninety investors are on edge of the week data from china and fears that there's no end in sight to its trade war with the united states and just minutes into trading well the dow fell one and a half percent later regaining some of those losses the volatility traders experienced at the end of the year it could be here to stay well in europe germany's dax and inched into positive territory is trading was coming to an end some asian stocks fell by as much just for the scent. and shares were sent skidding out of the. make a tesla on the first day of trading following falling by eight percent for four to

7:19 pm
active volcanoes. the government did a study and it concluded that ten year only some could be made a top tourist destination because it was so close to crack a tour of. the volcano is in the middle of the sea and it's still expanding. and that's why it became a major tourist draw. that volcano triggered the tsunami that killed more than four hundred people easily crushing the buildings of tanya liaison it's the top location on the government's tenue bali's program seeking to make other parts of indonesia just as popular as bali which attracts more than forty percent of indonesia's tourists every year but the hotel's c.e.o. says the government needs to focus more on disaster preparedness. to do so after this disaster the government should construct more buildings that can survive strong waves along with break waters. so if there's
7:20 pm
a high wave it can be anticipated and its force can be minimized. indonesia's tourism minister brushed off concerns and says the town should be rebuilt within six months i think and we have been in. any place in in a nice you know what is important and the most important thing is we have to profile the mitigation plan. indonesia wants to increase its annual tourist from fourteen million to more than twenty million with its investment push but without disaster ready infrastructure included many fear the funds could be quickly washed away. and while some countries are looking to attract more tourists other hotspots are trying to keep tourists bay if you're planning a day trip to the. dreamy a tally in city of venice this year you might have to fork out for the privilege of accessing city's historic center permission for cities to charge admission is among a host of measures introduced by italy as part of its twenty nine thousand budget
7:21 pm
the matter of venice says people will be charged up to ten years of this it and that the money will be used to clean up the city a tax where you apply to tourists and not to those traveling for work or study. twenty nine turns off to a rocky start for netflix the streaming giant has come under fire for withdrawing an episode of the popular comedy show patriot act in saudi arabia perhaps understandably the saudi crown prince was not amused as a joke about the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi. who can tell a small welcome oh so what was it about this job that is so offended the crown prince i mean this is a show hosted by us comedian his name is a samba nashi he used to work for the daily show he loves these political jokes is what the show is all about right so one of his first episodes really focused on saudi arabia the crown prince mohammed bin some on and his alleged involvement in the killing of the shoji actually we have a clip of that episode here take
7:22 pm
a look. just a few months ago probably prince mohammed bin salon a.k.a. n.d.s. was hailed as the reformer of the arab world needed but the revelations about to show his killing have shattered that image in a blows my mind that it took the killing of a washington post journalist for everyone to go on. i guess he's really not a reformer meanwhile every muslim person you know was like yeah you know. he's the crown prince of saudi arabia. ok well apparently the saudis didn't think that that was very funny and surprise surprise and the country's communications watchdog they basically forced netflix to take that episode down in saudi arabia when news of that got out people were not very happy about it in fact here's some of what people were saying this is the executive director of human rights watch in the middle east and she says that netflix is claim to support artistic freedom means nothing if it bows to demands of government officials who believe in no freedom for their
7:23 pm
citizens not artistic not political and not comedic even jamal khashoggi former editor of the washington post speaking out here and she says when jamal khashoggi wrote about the need for free expression in the arab world that freedom is not just about journalists it's about freedom for artists comedians cartoonists musicians anyone who wants to express their views on society. there is though taking kind of a more nuanced view here one person writes look if they want to operate in a country they have to obey its laws a better position for netflix would be to boycott saudi arabia altogether and that might help increase pressure for reform there as for netflix phil the company defending its decision in a written statement they said we strongly support artistic freedom worldwide and only removed this episode in saudi arabia after we received a valid legal request and to comply with local law. this is not an isolated incident saudi arabia is not noted for tolerating criticism right yet if they don't like it in saudi arabia they will ban it they'll censor it they'll do basically
7:24 pm
whatever they want overall the state of media freedom there is not very strong we can just show you some statistics from reporters without borders they do not have some nice things to say about saudi arabia ranks one hundred sixty nine thousand one hundred eighty nations in terms of press freedom it does not allow an independent media there and it uses a very broadly britain cyber crime law this is used to crack down on anything from blasphemy to insulting religion inciting chaos and danger in national unity mean that could basically mean anything right and even defaming the king and that seems to be perhaps what flagged this episode there from netflix. not the only as i look around the media landscape it's not the only media company go looking like it's going to have a tough time this year right i mean the state of media freedom for tech companies i think is only getting worse it's not getting better and twenty nineteen and as these companies expand into other countries i mean that flicks now isn't about two hundred countries around the world you have to start making these decisions do we
7:25 pm
prioritize profits do we prioritize freedom of speech and we saw the concession that netflix made there in saudi arabia another country on the horizon now is vietnam this week they just passed their own version of this cyber crime bill this would criminalize criticism of the government and requires tech companies to hand over user data that could be important for a company like facebook for example so we'll see more battles like this with author authoritarian regimes in the future and twenty nineteen coalescent simply look forward to a secure. as look at the sport then the english premier league gearing up for a top of the table showdown as reigning champions manchester city host league leaders liverpool on thursday the game also pits form a bond as league coaches pep quote hero and you can plot against each other a win for clubs liverpool would increase their lead at the top to nine points manchester city a curry third in the table but a win would take them soon within four points of the needs of the match club
7:26 pm
described his side's opponents as the best team in the world. you have to we have to be prepared as good as possible we have to be brave you have to be full of. angry again all that stuff like in all the other games we have to be that but with the knowledge of the opponent is for me still the best team in a row that's how it is. staying in the english premier league chelsea have signed american when a christian the police six from league club force your dog and the twenty year old will move to london for a fee of sixty four million from the so most expensive in the transfer district to six came through the ranks at dortmund have enjoyed the youth team twenty fifteenth to remain at the club for the rest of the season before joining chelsea in june. fifth for present jonny in fine tino says world football's governing body is studying whether it would be possible to expand the twenty twenty two world cup to
7:27 pm
forty eight teams he said fee for should allow should follow the i follow through with the idea first suggested in march that neighboring gulf states could help qatar host some of the matches it also voted to increase the size of the twenty twenty six tournament and trust from thirty two to forty eight teams that expansion may now come soon. so if you think it's a good thing to have forty eight teams in the world cup. and we'll have it for twenty six. why shouldn't we try to have it already forty years before. it's never too late to do something good right and. good are you watching to w.'s live from baghdad still to come the syrian refugee sarum on t.v. helped rescue migrants from the mediterranean a national crisis greek people smuggling it was a pretty difficult for all sources to distinguish between volunteers rescuers and

a row crash in denmark a truck trailer apparently blew into the path of a passenger train a storm force winds battered a bridge. how it works sara madine is facing the people smuggling charges increase after being praised back in two hundred fifteen for helping to save migrants from drowning at sea this summer she was arrested by greek or started to claim she's been assisting migrant smuggling after spending three months in detention as madine who's a self a refugee she's now back in the back she's not out on bail and back in germany completing her studies but she still facing the prospect of years behind bars. saddam or dean is relieved to be back with her college classmates in berlin the syrian refugee an activist was released on bail after spending more than three months in a green prison. so i was returning from last bus in august when police arrested her on the table she had spent the summer volunteering on the greek island with
7:32 pm
a pro refugee organization because of her work helping migrants authorities charged her with people smuggling money laundering and espionage she now faces a prison sentence of up to twenty five years i never regret anything. because i want to help people and that's causing many of asian. her arrest wasn't the first time that sarah made headlines she caught the world's attention in twenty fifteen but for very different reasons. she and her sister yourself were making the paralyse crossing from turkey to last bus when their dinghy began to take on water and sink being experienced swimmers they jumped overboard and pulled the waterlogged boat to shore by doing so they saved the lives of the eighteen people on board. they began a new life in germany. just a became
7:33 pm
a goodwill ambassador for the united nations and was on the refugee team at the twenty sixteen rio olympics. site i want to scholarship to study social sciences in berlin but kept on returning to last us to help others. i believe when you feel something just go for it so i feel the place and i wanted to be on this ground again following stars arrest her college classmates campaign for her release organizing protests in berlin boston athens and other cities her defense team is calling for greater protection for humanitarian workers are you talking about unity is an ongoing conversation right now because they recognize that. has to recognize the good if you will for financial benefit. or believe god's will be. required in order to do you know the established the crime of my gun smuggling you cannot have smugglers without
7:34 pm
benefits and this is obviously you have to exclude from. people and organizations of provides for one. until such safeguards are in place greek authorities can claim that site i was helping migrants enter the country illegally she's currently waiting for her. a case to go to trial she hopes it won't go that far but is determined to prove her innocence and that saving lives is not a crime. let's take a closer look at this event so mcallister from a human rights watch welcome to dublin why does it seem so difficult for the law to differentiate between volunteers saving migrants from from drowning and people smuggling it shouldn't be difficult at all so i think this case is politicized the authorities in greece want to set that want to send a signal to help us to rescue and search out. not to do that job not to
7:35 pm
help people to deter them in order to deter refugees and migrants to come to greece ok so with what what we're looking at then is as you say that sending a signal and so this is does this indicate a sort of change of policy for greece because greece amongst other countries has been getting quite quite hard on the n.g.o.s who are involved in rescuing migrants this is actually quite ongoing there are many more people in greece in prison right now in detention waiting for trial to try to help other refugees to be rescued from from emergency situations in the sea all this actions ations against sarah madine and the others who are in detention at the moment. for example the ex is a certain that they are spies but they don was there were listening to. not
7:36 pm
could if hives. regular radio or radio transmission opened radio transmissions which information were already also open and available on websites for ships so actually they use the same radio frequencies that the coast guard used with the organization in order to coordinate the rescue of people see this is this is what makes the whole thing appear so far cicle from from the outside if clearly as you say the government is trying to send a message but if these cases get to court someone's got a look at this is a well as you say where is the espionage this is money laundering or where is that where is the money going and how is she in any way making money from this that it looks like it would just fall apart in court yes i think so if greece is still a rule of law state and we should assume that it is a member of the european union that this case stand in in
7:37 pm
court at all and i think the prosecutor must have been driven by some very right wing political ideas perhaps all of it could just be looking at this as one weapon in trying to slow down the flow of migrants into a country that cannot cope with them. even if they want to slow down this is not the way how to do it this is illegal what the prosecutors are doing. rescuing asylum seekers is never a crime. it's an obligation asylum seekers have the right to a set and legal procedure processing in the country in the e.u. and this is trieste so telling them that they are. completely foolish to talk to you thanks for joining us. for human rights watch what.
