10:15 pm
fire will be implemented the problem or or the case is the turning point of the war is that the backed general has star strongman has been. losing ground in his battle against tripoli and he lost half of the west so he is in the east of the country while the un backed prime minister has been with his militia advancing to zilch so partly the country is geographically. separated between east and west and it's unclear if this auschwitz arse will continue the operation and if them the general help them might be supported even more militarily by egypt and even by by russia. there are so many international players in this mess one wonders if it still isn't on the verge of just sliding into another syria.
10:16 pm

10:17 pm
of national accord in tripoli but president macron has also hosted the general half and paris in message. yes they the european union's position on libya is still weak because france and each only have very opposing interests in the media that is questions of questions of financial interests and also the question how to deal with different i had about some clips. but the german auspices. french the italian the german foreign minister i'm headed to curation yesterday that also called for ceasefire and immediate return of dialogue so it's on the shoulder of the of germany and the german e.u. presidency for the next month is to really reboost foreign and security joint european policy and redy to get into terms with france and italy on how to advance

a diverse ecology and 4000000 people. people who rely on fishing and farming to survive. but in me a massive storm vite doubt board options. these are the freshwater born snoop and i'm wondering used to fish and the violence of cycle on breached all embankments killing the freshwater fish and sweeping out the prawns that could have survived feline water to see. what can we do we are dependent on relief now once a lockdown is lifted we will have to leave this in their bones to find there is nothing after. these islands in the summer buns were evacuated before the cyclon. preventing paos of deaths. but just didn't return to utter devastation houses gone fields flooded crops destroyed. and even when the

steptoe we home all generations will be lost to. a lot of football in liverpool fans are celebrating after securing the english premier league title after a 30 year wait after chelsea ended manchester city's championship bed and confirmed liverpool as winners fans flock to the stadium to party despite pandemic restrictions and there were plenty of tributes for your gun club who became the 1st german manager to lift the english title. i was thursday evening liverpool and field stadium one half of the city is beside itself beef waited a long long time for this moment. i just for the last time would want to leave you have to. believe you. would still like that it's amazing to see sometimes on the past even with me and down the seas we. should know
10:23 pm
that we might get to see it go. to a market where you know they were going to win anyway. just recited. the inevitability of this title didn't stop the party little wonder given that no club had ever won the english championship with 7 games to spare. the players and stuff didn't hold back either as they celebrated together in a liverpool hotel somewhere in there is the man who must have minded it all coach you can clock up. really happy really. proud of us all more obviously. but. it's a very good it's a very very good moment in my life it's all very possible that. you will become champion so i'm in face of it but a lot of the work. that's already. on friday clark wasn't just the darling of the
10:24 pm
english press the red half of liverpool knew whom to thank for ending 30 years of pulling hurt. just absolutely amazing thank you well it is a. liverpool's 19th title is done and dusted no funds here are hoping for the 28th which would see them equal much as the united english record. you heard mark corrigan of that report from d.w. 40 joins me now welcome arc to how significant is this a victory for liverpool well it's massive you saw the explosive celebrations there the space despite the pandemic nothing was going to keep them and this is a this is a huge victory for them. they felt the 30 years of hard to borrow a line from a popular english song. suffering in the shadow of manchester united as the hoover top all these trophies on that alex ferguson they have picked up a couple european cups in the same which for some clubs would be fine but i think for local bragging rights which is so important in this better rivalry between
10:25 pm
liverpool and manchester united this is this title this is hugely important and if we go back to that 30 years ago we think of some of the names hums and wheel and that's only people of a certain vintage that move those names so we see how long ago that was why they were so so enthused by and your going close his personality seems to be a significant part of transforming the pool he saw a few 70 that's why he was loved here in germany at bristol dortmund then it's wise love it's a strange one actually because liverpudlians are so well known for be an egg. vests and be in you know the sense of humor actually a lot of their their major coaches the likes of joe fagan bob paisley even though cliched brought him so much success over the years quite reticent men. the big. exception to that would be bill shankly the sort of jimmy cagney esque scotsman who who built the club up from from very very little in the sixty's and seventy's and created this juggernaut you can clips actually comparable to him i would say which
10:26 pm
is is a real compliment seems that they've taken to the cult of personality is create being created around them like it was for shankly when he smartly now but it was not long ago you're going to what was being labeled it and nearly a man after he lost a number of cup finals so what does this latest win division reputation well i think i think it was rightly was being labeled nearly lost his last cup final in germany as last game with percy dortmund and his 1st 3 years liverpool he lost 2 european finals it lost 6 of the last 7 major finals by that point and it really did look like it was going to happen for him to make that leap to the pantheon but that's where he is no age now he's winning everything he's won in the premier league is when the european cup champions league and european super cup world cup you name it so it's just a case of keeping the job going to go in and have his pick of jobs if he had to leave but i don't think it will be many liverpudlians want to not. going from a sport thank you so much thank you. this is g.w.
