says. he knows that he's among many refugees hoping to reunite with their families . but he and his brothers have little chance of bringing their relatives here the german government expects refugees like him to return home at some point if they're not in danger of persecution the u.n. disagrees with this policy. the need for protection is the same you cannot predict a conflict is significantly shorter than the need for protection based on individual persecution for example because someone is a political opponent mentioned people need to be with their families we have to see the situation from a humanitarian perspective it's not right that people should be separated from their spouses and children for years at a time and this is a question of humanity and for the teat cussen isn't sure why it's difficult for refugee families to be reunited here imagine he says if germans were in his
situation all alone in a new country without family in any case he's adamant that returning to syria is not an option there's nothing left for him to do but wait for the decision from the authorities and keep in touch with his wife every day online. here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world observers say at least sixteen civilians have been killed in government airstrikes on syria's province that brings the death toll to thirty three people since sunday is the only province in syria under the control of opposition forces government troops have. been making advances in recent weeks israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu was in moscow for talks with russian president vladimir putin the two are expected to discuss israel's concerns about an expansion of iran's military involvement in syria russia has close relations with both countries thousands of people have reportedly been left homeless following a fire at
a slum in kenya's capital nairobi the blaze that got this long broke out on sunday evening at least four people are believed to have died. a new front has opened in yemen's protracted civil war four people have been killed in a second day of fighting between rival factions looking to gain control of the southern port city of eight now the government is based in that city and it has accused the separatists of an attempted coup the unrest is a fresh threat to the authority of the country's president he remains in exile in saudi arabia. it's a new front in yemen see as a long conflict here many separatists fighting government troops in the south in city of aden in the forces had previously been on the same side in the civil war between the saudi backed government and hoofy rebels in the north of yemen who are aligned with iran government forces are determined to head off any attempt at rebellion in the south. and you are there's no difference between the truth isn't
anyone else who rebels against the legitimate government no matter who they are left right silence east if they're not with the government then they're an enemy of the entire country but of course. the complex conflict has devastated yemen already one of the region's poorest countries long running u.n. backed efforts have so far failed to bring peace now the u.n. is urging parties involved in the latest violence to end the fighting and pursue dialogue. or earlier we spoke to political scientists many are from the university of zurich and we asked her what the latest developments mean for civilians caught in the crossfire of yemen's complex one. means another. case another. source of money kerry and is that says that the situation is complicated enough and right now we need this
development in the south one realizes that the people are quote in between in design and in the north most importantly the gains the collation been making and it is the duty forces might be in theirs because the duties might feel in bold and in order to try to expand other reasons so another. layer that can and will lead to more humanitarian suffering. public criticism has been coming thick and fast after reports here in germany that those toxic emissions test on monkey use are financed by german car companies they extended the humans as well now the aim was reportedly to clear up the p.r. disaster in the wake of the diesel gate scandal and give diesel a good name again and secure valuable tax breaks it did not work.
here at the university clinic in africa in two thousand and thirteen and fourteen a group of twenty five healthy people were made to inhale nitrogen dioxide in varying concentrations over periods of hours several times a week manufacturers' wanted to use the tests to determine exactly how dangerous nitrogen dioxide was to humans the tests were commissioned by the european research organization for environment and health and financed by german car makers v.w. b.m.w. and german parts supplier bosch the study was supposed to be conducted under the car the that they were to be no negative effects on the human subjects but the methods which have now been revealed have let loose a wave of indignation. it's absolutely understandable that people are outraged that tests on monkeys and even on human beings cannot be justified. that amounts to nothing more than hot air according to environmental organizations they
say the german government has been in bed with the automotive lobby for years. mrs merkel is really the first chancellor and she even fights in brussels to make sure that emissions regulations are less strict and if possible not controls which control yet and it seems there were no controls at volkswagen either the supervisory board says it knew nothing about the studies and is now threatening consequences. to complex this complex is reprehensible ethically morally and in that sense i think the w. will have to hold the employees who are responsible for this accountable so they can shift. these revelations will deliver another blow to the german car industry's image. david beckham has launched a major league soccer team in miami the announcement was made of a ceremony in the city on monday the new team has yet to be named but back when he
