in about a 1000 journalists some here you can probably see behind me and what they're trying to do is work out how to best defend media from censorship abuse attacks and misinformation and they've started the conference by promising investment the u.k. has pledged $15000000.00 to developing countries who want to improve their independent media and they've been marked out for bangladesh sierra leone and ethiopia to start with they've also him up 3700000 dollars specifically for the middle east to support media freedom there and the intervention side we've seen foreign secretary jeremy hunt make 5 pledges he's going to be creating a global media defense fund administered by the by unesco he's going to be creating an international taskforce to help governments meet their targets move that ranking system of the world press freedom index and that's going to be reviewed by the united nations he's going to be helping to advise countries on how to strengthen the legal protection for journalists and that will be headed up by human rights
lawyer m l to me the most interesting link he's going to be forming a group of governments who will act as a rapid response unit when crimes are committed against the media freedoms and lastly he's going to be getting the countries you've attended here to sign a declaration promoting freedom of expression but i think the most interesting point that's been made today was one from a gone in journalist and an ass and backed up by that human rights were saying at the moment the west is being incredibly contradictory giving aid to promote democracy with one hand while with the other hand taking that money back and putting it in banks and private accounts often from the very people who are in charge of those initial countries so lots of thorny issues to unpick here and also calls from journalists to really make sure these measures have some teeth to consider sanctions in the future. a mash of emergency has been declared in chad.
for an outbreak of measles other african countries are also struggling to contain what is a preventable disease a report from nicholas hogg. it is so much it hurts. the fever won't go down. and this baby's lungs are filled with. these are children on the brink of death because they were not vaccinated against measles oh no we didn't know what it was we thought it was malaria it's only here that they told us she has measles you don't understand we are so scared of losing her they keep giving her injections but she isn't doing any better this preventable disease has become an epidemic spreading faster than it can be contained. doctors without borders have set up one crisis center after the other vaccinating children to stop them contracting measles. we're very worried because measles combined with malnutrition is
a dangerous mix and there aren't enough international actors helping chad the ministry of health to tackle this growing outbreak an outbreak that isn't just affecting chad take a look at these numbers according to the u.n. there has been a global increase of cases of measles by 300 percent in the last year how many of you here are worried about autism at the heart of the crisis is both fear and belief that the measles vaccine is dangerous by an increasing number of people in the west and the lack of access to vaccines in other parts of the world. you know. more than 90 percent of children have not been vaccinated because they don't have access to health centers and so most children under 5 are infected with the measles virus. it is highly contagious for both children and adults and so despite its to fight this age old virus measles is thriving indeed during the lives of thousands here in chad and around the world. little is hark.

drove the so-called down bro movement pushing for greater autonomy and that remains unresolved today the problem seems to be one of inherent dysfunction freedom of expression where you can and your grievances combined with a political system that ensures a pro beijing government seems to guarantee a high degree of unhappiness especially among young people a situation that the pro-democracy groups say can only be resolved by beijing the ultimate solution would be for china to seriously open up and look at hong kong as a positive for a window case a positive example for chinese democratic development the probe aging camp says the more hong kong people push for change the more futile this movement becomes. as china's leaders won't be seen to be giving way most hong kong

a goodbye party this it was a good buy them but it's also a party a big party for everyone. maybe it was the combination of a funky design a reliable engine and an affordable price tag that ultimately made the beetle an international hit by the 1960 s. and seventy's the bug had become both a pop culture icon and a symbol of the counterculture movement. while the beetle has gone through several iterations over the last 80 years its cult following has carried well into the 21st century with so much history under the hood could this really be the end of the love bug. in quote that big a small town just outside mexico city you'd be forgiven for thinking v.w. beetles outnumber people. here. has been fixing up beetles for almost 30 years he tells us they can try to phase out the bugs as they are loving the called in mexico but the cars themselves aren't going anywhere. will never
go away it's the best car ever made it was the color of the century whoever designed this call hit the nail on the head it can handle any think you throw my it's all terrain it was the best of them ain't. it's on a steep hillside no match for the heavy duty engine this is probably why they're so ubiquitous they're yellow ones purple ones other ones waiting to be repaired all of them will get into the cultural fabric of the country and. for now. very proud drivers who are committed to keeping the life of. mexico city. still ahead on the news. and other incredible bob for the. money and. thank.
you for what. thank you new zealand the 1st of the final of the cricket world cup off debating favorites india and manchester in a line affected semifinal carried over from cheers to india needed 240 to win a shocking starts their winnings left them with too much to do as door for bug reports these ilands batsmen came out to complete their endings on day 2 of this rain affected match knowing their team had to put in a much improved performance if they would have beat tournament favorites india but they could only add another $28.00 runs thanks in part to a supposed piece of fielding from raw featured data to remove ross taylor.
a total of 239 for 8 didn't look enough but new zealand's fast bowlers had other ideas. india's captain and stop at sman virat kohli could only manage a single as matt ran riot i. they were 5 for 3 then 24 who for after the stunning catch from james mission i. i but india then launched a fight back fuelled by the big change a danger i. he took them to within 32 runs a victory before holding out to grateful easy and captain came williamson was i why i'm indian hopes then rested with a veteran former captain and missed ernie and martin doul the kiwi opener has had
a dreadful torment with the bat but more than made up for it with this run out. i think you might want to see india collapse to 221 all out you zealand celebrating an incredible comeback and a famous 18 run victory that puts them into a 2nd successive a world cup final that was a brilliant stat for. as for the ball. i guess on the other side of that coin and it would have been as happy would stop but there were some some good deliveries in there which sometimes take the agent sometimes done today they did for us and at that price in a good position always feels disappointed when you've played such good cricket and then you know 45 minutes of bad cricket puts you out of the dormant so it's difficult to accept it's difficult to come to terms with but look new zealand deserve it because they put enough pressure on us and they were far more sharper when it came to the came to the crunch moment more frequent al-jazeera. well as you
might imagine the result has not gone down well in india where cricket has huge importance these are the saints in the northern city of amritsar fun show their displeasure by burning pictures of kohli and is telling the population of more than a 1000000000 india is easily the world's largest cricket market minister narendra modi also tweeted his commiserations india were world cup winners in 190-2011 but not 29. so it could be a repeat of the final 4 years ago when australia apply new zealand australia play host england in the 2nd semi and. england have never want to world cup after shaky period in the qualification group that return to form to reach the semi's instead big rivals. everybody is excited and has been the last couple of days to play this game it's a semi fun of will cope i think the fact. thread the group stages for a while getting through to the stage looked unlikely or it was called into question i think that makes it more exciting for us and we look at our sort of the moment
with full confidence going into this guy mostly england have been the probably the front runners in world cricket of the last 4 years why they've changed the game in the game playing in particular has been very crissy of taking it to the opposition so for us we had again apply that i had we're going to play have played each other a lot over the last couple of years so it's going to be whoever holton of whoever takes in them half chances whoever starts off the game really well in 1st 10 overs whether it's with bet or ball going to be so important for the sought it was men's quarter finals dying at wimbledon with some of the old time greats in tennis in action and not just in the men's draw so as the polls. in an unprecedented tennis career you'd think they would know more bond market less about your predator breach but he keeps finding a way i was despite losing the 1st set of his quarterfinal to japan's canucks are calling the 8 time tamping fought back to win in 4 sets and in the process became the 1st man to win $100.00 singles matches at the same glance one event. that was
different the beginning was it was brutal ok came out and smashing returned winners and had to defend make some adjustments stay with them and try to maybe turn around the 1st set and tennis fans can look forward to an old style classic is federal will play longtime rival rafael of darwin the semifinals it will be their 1st wimbledon meeting since the epic 2008 final one by an adult a spaniard be big serving american sam querrey in straight sets. defending champion and top seed novak djokovic took just under 2 hours to beat david goffin of belgium in 3 sets the serb is beating for his 5th time to clip the all england club he'll play for berto protista a guru in the final 4 i. have been playing best tennis in this tournament in the last 2 rounds 4th round and

are creating the generation of children that will never forget what we did to them house democrats condemn the treatment of children detained at centers and on the us mexico border tehran facing the threat of more u.s. sanctions over its uranium enrichment and we're looking at the state of media freedom a major conference in london. so britain's ambassador to the u.s. has resigned saying it is impossible to stay on after president trump caught off cut off all contact with him and branded him a pompous fall that follows the leaking of diplomatic cables and which came down described the trumpet ministration as both clumsy and inept or its lee has our report. there is no precedent for this kim darrick all of the u.k.'s most senior diplomats in the most important world capital forced from office after
a concerted attack on his credibility by actors in london and at the white house prime minister in parliament prime minister and leader of the opposition expressed what you can only call thinly disguised outrage at what they see as the assault on the integrity of the u.k.'s diplomatic service good government depends on public servants being able to give full and frank advice i want all our public servants to have the confidence to be able to do that. the parliament's foreign affairs committee went to try to make sense of its asking the head of the country's diplomatic service if you'd ever known anything like it or not in his career he said nor in anyone else's in the last 150 years the last time i know that we had difficulty with the united states was 856. when the incumbent was accused of recruiting americans to fight on the british side in
the crimean war president franklin pierce was in the wire. on one level derek's position had become untenable since president trump decided to blackball him from official events following the ambassador's leaked criticisms of him and his administration although all go on tell us where the last straw was a come on but the straw that broke the camel's back was that barack watched the t.v. debate on tuesday night's between jeremy hunt the foreign secretary and boris johnson in the race to become the u.k.'s next prime minister hunt said he supported barack and said trump had no business interfering in the u.k.'s diplomatic service but johnson didn't he refused to say he had a direct hit back as the u.k.'s man in washington so i will keep him until east you . and i think would like to know if you get well i'm not going to be super don't choose to thank you i got a good position it seems derek decided that johnson was prepared to throw him under the bus in favor of his support for trump and the favorable trade deal with the usa
as part of it the logic of this is there's none better than a country with which the u.k. might want to do a trade deal china say or brazil will have to think twice about expressing their opinions openly even in secret diplomatic cables for fear that they might get leagues and that in itself undermines governments but apart from that if boris johnson becomes prime minister he'll be faced with the foreign office few areas of his perceived role in bringing down one of their own. johnson himself assuming he becomes prime minister will pick the next ambassador to washington the question is will it be a neutral diplomat or a political appointment rex it is taking yet more victims this time for the ha.
