3:21 am
know that refugees are very concerned about that what can the international community really do in terms of pressuring. some sort of process to call. the issue of these alleged atrocities to be committed to charge me and i think the international community should do more to pressure that if we've all heard never again and if these people who we know. have committed some of you know somebody has to be held accountable and somebody needs to see that these people are held accountable with respect to the a different here can the international community do to better help bangladesh this is not going away in the near future is at this question what i've seen so far with just a few days of rain or even a half a day of rain we will be witnessing landslides and we may see more casualties

3:23 am
the e.u. by a clear but not necessarily large majority martin schulze now has the authority to enter formal negotiations with anglo-american the platform slogans proclaimed a new time needs a new politics but on offer was much of the same old government in a wide ranging speech should spelt out why another coalition with merkel was the best option. believe me this hasn't been easy for anyone but i never doubted for a moment that we should follow the play of the president as a way out of this difficult political situation as a social democrat is my firm conviction that in this exceptional situation we must at least try to provide the best possible outcome for the people of germany and the europe. but many in the hall and in the wider party did not agree perhaps the most vocal opposition came from the party's youth movement lloyd has been absolutely i'm sure people negotiated well it's a reason i and many of those in an outside this room is not happy with the results
