7:11 am
analysis in a moment but 1st this report featuring reactions from syringes state capital airport. was scenes of jubilation at the left party headquarters the socialists achieved their best result ever topping a state election for the 1st time this saddling up a strong left party is simply the best thing for this state it was a good result for the far left party led by popular perm yeah. but if obama those current governing coalition an alliance with the social democrat s.p.d. party and the greens can't continue as it is the other 2 parties center of left lost considerable ground and up a big win it was the alternative for germany party or a f.t. the far right party is considered particularly radical in. the party's 3 inches leda b.n. hca struck a particularly nationalist tone which won the party 2nd place. in
7:12 am
the stuffy old system is now being swept away my friends we're now going to take back our country. that was disappointment for the conservatives or c.d.u. party chancellor angela merkel's party came in behind the f.t. and 3rd place. it's a bitter day for the c.d.u. in 3 and a bitter day for the c.d.u. in germany we fight together we win together and just like today we also lose together. mike moldering cd used to lida has already ruled out the idea of forming a coalition with the far right all the far left this means forming a regional government will most likely be an extremely complicated time. our political correspondent husband has been covering this election for us good
7:13 am
morning has a fractured political landscape there in its orange will it be possible for the triumphant left party to form a government that's going to be a very very difficult task the current premier in the region board obama who is in a fairly comfortable position because he can continue as interim leader until a new leader is chosen whenever that may be so he is not under a lot of time pressure to get together to put together a government but the political landscape is so fractured that he will need to pull together very very diverse parties in order to be able to form some sort of government there is talk of maybe a minority government which is a situation that is very rare in germany i would say that for every decision that is taken in parliament he will have to find a new majority so it's going to be a long process it's going to be a difficult process but at the same time the situation will remain stable for the time being so left party won increased share of bot the far right d.
7:14 am
party more than doubled its share of the vote in this election here's the party's leader in thuringia commenting on the election results. in the months and never before in history has a single party and a single person been so defamed in the federal republic like we were. bret's there and yet the 3 engines have made this result possible and the result it says a clear no to our paralyzed party democracy a result that says yes to a new vibrant democracy no new bending to move out. a new vibrant democracy how did her and his party the tea manage to mobilize so many voters to win nearly a quarter of the i think 1st of all you have to say this man is a real fascist. there's even been a court judgment saying that one has a to call him that he's
7:15 am
a very right wing right wing in this party despite that more than almost a quarter of the voters voted for him the party went very much on a narrative directed at east germans at their feeling of being somehow a 2nd class citizens of not being respected in the whole of germany of not being able to say what they feel in the whole of germany also the issue of migration which elsewhere in germany has is on the back burner is not so current anymore in that region it's still something that the if he can use to mobilize people so it was that combination of playing into the feeling of east germans of being 2nd class citizens together with a migration issue that has been successful there and elsewhere in eastern germany one has to say in recent elections in other it used in june the german regions federal states. very similar results with this kind of structure so the far right after he nearly doubled or more than doubled its vote in the state meanwhile the
7:16 am
center right c.d.u. party of chancellor angela merkel lost a lot how big of a blow is this to chancellor merkel cd this is a very very bitter result for the chance that america will end her career into a party this used to be the majority party in that federal state until 5 years ago it is now in food plays despite the fact. senior politicians from that property assisted in this election campaign including the new party leader. and a great con card on who was there supporting the local candidate all of that. was for nothing the party lost 11 percent its very very very bad result for the party what if anything does this election result in. tell us about the political direction of germany as a whole i think what you can say in germany as a whole that is reflected in the ranger as well is the fact that the political let's landscape is a lot more fractures they are no longer these 2 dominating parties that we've had
7:17 am
for decades in germany the conservatives over anglo-american on the one hand and the social democrats on the other a whole lot of other parties have similar sorts of results as these big parties forming governments is a lot more difficult and the question of what does this mean for the coalition governing the governing coalition between the conservatives and the social democrats both of them lost their both of them will be under pressure to try and change something in central government there's not much to change in fact they will have to continue in some way in the way that they're operating at the moment ok the party that won the most votes the left party the incumbent state premier boto romola was quite popular how much of his party's success is attributable to him a very large part i think this is something that has been similar also in other recent elections that the incumbent has gained an extra portion of the helping his party to victory this is that happened elsewhere as well what obama though despite
7:18 am
the fact that he comes from the left probably is in fact a fairly conservative person he has been running this government for the process 5 years in a very successful man so that was the bone is that he got from that i think. people want him to continue remaining in the premier but he's going to struggle putting together a government and continuing governing still a left party in syringes bucking the trend for the party elsewhere in the country and our political correspondent thank you so much. u.s. president donald trump has announced that the leader of the so-called islamic state of obama is dead trump said back that he blew himself up as american special forces stormed his hideout in province in northwestern syria but islamic state itself is not dead it remains a dangerous threat in iraq afghanistan and deal donald trump said american special

7:21 am
holy aaliyah's says the announcement of baghdad his death is welcome news for president trump as he faces an impeachment investigation. the death of the fugitive leader of the so-called islamic state. is being seen by president trump as a major win for him and his administration that this comes after the harsh criticism that he received from democrats and republicans over the rather abrupt decision to pull u.s. forces from syria and abandon their longstanding kurdish allies and critics have said that the pullout would allow isis to strengthen and once again become a serious threat to the united states and other countries but president trump ordered the return of 1000 u.s. troops now he and the u.s. defense secretary marc esper said so much would stay in syria to secure oil fields there and we mustn't forget that syrian oil in the past had been a source of revenue for the terror group that what we do or what we don't know is
7:22 am
how many u.s. troops will in fact be needed now the president has been pushing for an end to what he calls the u.s. is involvement in endless wars and live up to a promise he made of bringing the troops home now for now trump is focusing on what he believes is very positive news that's the death of one of the most sought after people on the planet and shift the focus away from the ongoing and fast moving impeachment inquiry into him here in the united states. thousands of revelers in mexico city have taken to the streets for the annual day of the did celebrations people paraded wearing costumes and face paint with many dressed the skeletal figure known as the luck of katrina the character was created by a mexican illustrator more than 100 years ago the colorful festivities take place ahead of mexico's 2 day holiday to all or the did was traditionally begins on the 1st. well staying in mexico the formula one grand prix lewis

hamilton is closer to winning his. 6 drivers title after claiming victory in the race the briton leads the standings by a massive margin and could wrap up the championship at the next race in the us. a ferrari from ray made life difficult for lewis hamilton at the start of this race pushed wide on to the grass by sebastian fatso and straight into a tangle with red bulls max to happen a couple of coolness later the british driver came out of that scrap the better and the same could be said of the pit stops after striking through the field with seemingly listener effort camels and went in for his tires early so he could get ahead of the ferrari's after that stops that strategy cooked up by the miss a these team works and it was helped in part by some mistakes in the ferrari carriage then leader charlotte clare had already made one stop when this happens

a problem putting on his rear tire. they knew they'd blown it and it was then just left to hamilton to nurse his car over the line. a well earned victory for him in mexico i mean credibly humbled by today's opportunity in a car pulled together as it did in the teams being so sufficient and executing the best strategy. the $612.00 title will have to wait for now but it surely just a matter of time. south africa are in the final of the rugby world cup after beating wales in the semi finals in yokohama south africa's 100 pollard scored a late penalty to break welsh hearts and sealed victory in an extremely hard fought game taking it 19 to 16 the springboks play england on saturday in a repeat of the 2007 final which south africa won. this is d.w.
