nairobi's morgues every day many of them young men killed by police in a culture of impunity from one officer willing to speak out. hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us we'll have those stories and more coming up for you in just a moment but first we'll head over to my colleague. for more of what's happening on the markets cannot help but it is well it's pretty bad at least if you invested in the last year or so because after a rally that has been going on for months and months it was a bit a day of reckoning on world markets many already talking about the black monday a time reserved in financial circles only for the most severe of. shock's the dow
7:02 am
jones industrial average in the u.s. tumbled one thousand one hundred seventy five points or four point six percent to close down at twenty four thousand three hundred forty five on monday it's eight percent down last week compared to last week to put this into perspective it's the biggest loss for six years and it marks the largest intraday point of decline intraday point decline of all time one thousand five hundred ninety seven points the technology index nasdaq is also sharply down by three point seven percent so what happened a combination of factors is at play here wages in the u.s. have risen here we have the market figures once again but wages figures in the u.s. have risen stronger than expected which stokes fears of rising inflation that will drive interest rates upwards makes it more expensive for companies to borrow money and cheap money has been the fuel behind the rally of recent months also rising
7:03 am
interest rates make safe assets that governments don't bones more attractive for investors so they pull out money from shares and much of the slump is also generated by computers trading orders are triggered when certain shares or other indicators fall to a preprogramed level and these selves trigger other sell orders it's a domino effect and it works within seconds around the globe let's have a look at asian markets which follow wall street's lead today japan's nikkei index was down almost seven point one percent during trading that's the biggest point drop since one thousand nine hundred stocks across all sectors us getting in the way of the new york crash carmakers like to go to financial stocks and technology companies are being hit hard all other asian markets are also taking a beating in hong kong the hunt saying index is around five percent lower right now headed toward its biggest fall since twenty fifty. so what goes up
7:04 am
must eventually go down maybe donald trump would do well to remember that the next time he attributes stock market success to himself he could be cheered by some analysts saying that this sell off actually is healthy at this stage it's better the market is letting off some steam right now instead of later when it could be much more damaging but that's chica disappear if sustained fear from investors has a chilling effect on investment. good news for the economy turned out to be very bad news for stocks at the start of the trading week the latest data on u.s. wages show average hourly earnings up two point nine percent year on year the highest rate of growth recorded since the middle of twenty nine that's following years of stagnation but faster wage growth means employers have to spend more to recruit the workers they want higher pay could equal less profit for shareholders and traders fear possible interest rate hikes. that the market is reacting not so
7:05 am
negatively because the economy is doing poorly but quite the contrary because the economy is doing so nicely and we might see some inflation pressure meaning the federal reserve and other central banks around the globe might also become more aggressive and that certainly could become a sea change that could we do not know yet a sea change in central banks meaning sharply higher key lending rates and it growing understanding that loose monetary policy is supposed to be temporary but that's further along the road for now investors are looking more anxious to get the short term u.s. stock futures have slid further since wall street closed they're now down three percent. so while markets in the u.s. were heading down with asian markets we're following europe european investors are still fos the sleep and let still cross over to our financial correspondent who's standing by at the frankfurt stock exchange where trading will only start in about two hours down what can we expect in european markets today.
7:06 am
here you can really feel the atmosphere already here at the stock market the first investors are already showing up here and i can tell you they are prepared for a really bad scenario i had the opportunity to talk to one of them or a little bit earlier he was telling me that they are very sure that also here the market in frankfurt will go down and we have to remember here in frankfurt we were still lucky yesterday shares here were dropping by zero point seven percent of pictures and other stock markets around europe was already quite different when you look at the market for example in london zurich or paris they were down between one point three and even one point five per cent today many investors have already said in the past days that they are really expecting the market to have a sort of correction we might see shares here dropping to
7:07 am
a level of only twelve thousand points. is this market correction not healthy after that rally of recent months. well many investors are actually saying that this is a healthy correction of the market because we have to remember in the last three years here's here where actually rising with a sixteen percent in the last year by ten percent many experts have said in the past that we already have seen quite an overheating here as the market and the figures are not even realistic so yes this is most likely going to be a very painful day many investors also private ones will lose money but after that trading will be more realistic again it's going to will come back to you in the next hours of course when trading has started thank you very much so far. that's all your business for the moment germany's main political parties closer to
7:08 am
a coalition deal and areas more on that story that's right. here in germany negotiators from the chancellor merkel's conservatives and the social democrats are inching closer to a new government the chancellor merkel's conservatives and social democrats were meant to strike a deal by sunday but they are still far apart on several key issues leaders on both sides are pushing hard for an agreement and an and to months of political uncertainty. the end of the road might just be inside the headquarters of the santa left p.d.s. where germany's political heavyweights of toughing it out in this last phase of coalition talks negotiated have been fine tuning the deal day. in a german government four months after the country's elections. we agreed to choose day will be the decisive day we're in the final round and want to finish the negotiations tuesday will be decisive on whether the negotiations will be concluded
7:09 am
successfully or not. up season. health care reform is being a sticking point the social democrats want to end gemini's to th health insurance system a second obstacle is fixed term employment contracts which the s.p.d. wants to replace with payment positions that provide greater job security the green party now in the opposition is vehemently opposed to the coalition agreement as it now stands starts the mood for instead of the display of courage to address tasks of the future we're seeing a grand coalition that's concerning itself with minor issues even while the really critical challenge we're facing in europe aren't getting the attention they deserve . talks are set to continue one choose day even if an agreement is finally reached the social democrats rank and file still need to sign off on the deal. or for more on the ongoing negotiations i'm joined here in the studio by maria turk
7:10 am
she's a research and teaching fellow in political science at humboldt university here in berlin good morning good morning now the s.p.d. entered these negotiations maria very reluctantly they are terrified that this could cause them to really come apart politically how is the s.p.d. approaching these negotiations in terms of strategy. yes a very good question being a junior partner in america coalition hasn't treated anyone well so far so we see why they are afraid of losing even more in the next poll. they try to do what the members if the lost them as the congress told them right so they try to introduce the so-called berger physician wrong and too weak to use it would be kind of a blanket urines for everything actually they have what means abolishment between the difference for differentiation between public and private health insurance exactly and they stepped already
7:11 am
a little bit back from that and said now that they tried to reduce their privileges of private insurance people so that it's going to be a little bit more similar here so you see some movement but they added high as well health care reform a big big issue very difficult huge implications we've seen this in germany and other countries too when it comes to reforming the health care system very difficult the s.p.d. is also asking the conservatives to make concessions with respect to fixed term employment contracts also another big topic do you think this p.d. is in a strong bargaining position to ask for those things well good question and and i would say they have cracked some leverage because they are the only real option for majority cap government right now so they can offer to some certainty for ten extend or what they want to get however they're not going to get everything. what
7:12 am
about the the the social what about the chancellor merkel's conservatives we know what's at stake for the s.p.d. in these talks what about the conservatives is it all sweetness and light for the c.d.u. and the berrien c.s.u. it is not a bad area have fake elections this year so the c.s.u. has to see that they get some of their policies also in federal government for and also for america and tunnel a pony. them starts there raising their voice so she is criticized this well it's tough for both parties are you still seeing within these negotiations an internal fight in chancellor merkel c.d.u. for leadership. well i think in not really loudly maybe on the ground there's something happening that prominence that really weighs in their voices however in public everyone is still behind her back ok german voters been waiting for months for a for
7:13 am
a government to be formed the elections were back in september german voters losing patience now they start to do however if we compare that with without a counterweight like belgium they say it's not a very long coalition negotiations also i mean the social democrats and the christian union just started to negotiate negotiate so actually the last coalition talks in two thousand and thirteen between the two parties half an even longer than what happened right now it's maybe important to remind german voters about that last negotiations took even longer what does this political uncertainty that germany is experiencing right now mean for the other political parties that are going to be represented in the bonus talk well they kind of least are supposition work yet either because well if there's no government you can't really start to work against the government however they are in a good position right i mean criticizing something is always easier than actually
7:14 am
doing at so they are a little bit if they'd waiting for is a real thing do you care to make any prediction on how these how these talks will end and the prospect of the s.p.d. rank and file actually accepting any coalition agreement i think you'll be going to have a coalition agreement proposal tonight probably the big question is if the members of the social democrats. gonna actually accept that and not really any poll or anything we can predict about that so it's very uncertain for everyone and that could take a little time to a couple of weeks i understand if i'm only a turk a research and teaching fellow at berlin's humboldt university thank you so much. at. hong kong is one of the most expensive places in the world to live in according to a study conducted by a bank only seventeen percent of households can actually afford the rent on their

7:31 am
claimed more than three thousand lives last year. october two thousand and seventeen it's been two days since my mom pry own lost her son brian nineteen years old executed by the police. state. for you. brian lived in one of nairobi slum the police suspected him of being a thug and thieves but his mother disagrees. before i make fun. joyce was brian's friend a neighbor here in her community in k.l. is where he was killed along with his three friends. had to take him to. the policeman on the one who got down. there is more evidence images of brian and his dead friends published on facebook.
7:32 am
troy says the police themselves post the pictures to instill fear and brand the victims as armed criminals. killing at the city more trees for britain but it seems that the killing of brian and his friends was not an isolated incident we're told that twenty to fifty corpses arrive here every day almost all killed by the police . dr brian beach anger is an independent forensic expert he confirms that cases like brian's are part of a larger pattern. into to be to buy into and to unscrew the chest. or. the bark. and the chest is not to do. its job security. the police repeatedly denied g.w.s. request for an official interview. one officer inside the system however says he's
7:33 am
against the extrajudicial killings and wants to uncover the actions of nairobi's police he agrees to talk to us anonymously as he fears for his life. so the procedure is as a cop you're given an order you don't know where the order comes from you're told hey this is what's happening. and now it's time to shoot to kill and then you go you land within that process if you don't get the right guy you'll end up killing the wrong guy and if you get the right guy you also kill the right guy without prosecution and nobody cares. crime is rife the prisons are full and for many police the lives of those who live in the slums in this until now thousands of extrajudicial killings in kenya have been covered up and gone unreported. friend's family at his funeral they feel that he like so many other young men was
7:34 am
stripped off judicial process and his human rights. and it's a sad certainty that bryant won't be the last young man will fall victim to nairobi's fight against crime. with me in the studio. is melanie cora the ball who brought to that exclusive report time melanie the killing of nineteen year old brian who was portrayed in your report there that happened in october has there been any investigation now there hasn't been and brian is just one of many cases where there hasn't been and missed a case and so your question really highlights the difficulties of holding the police to account you know. if you want to go ahead and help the police to count you have to file a complaint very often with the very same police who is responsible for the mud in the first place and then this year in a legal case is highly highly costly so for families like that of bryan living in
7:35 am
the slum it's just something that they cannot afford to do and finally there are institutions in place who are supposed to look into internal problems with the police but they are incredibly slow to respond and. that hasn't been an investigation now it sounds like then if there's no investigation at these these crimes if that's what they are going to it would seem so that they are being carried out with impunity has any evidence emerged to proof that the police are actually behind these killings. that's actually one of the problems right so we reached out to the independent oversight authority inside the police and we also reached out to the police and our o.b. and they repeatedly denied us any information any requests so you are facing these issues of finding evidence and that's because witnesses get to speak out because the police actually restricting access to the crime scene because they're sometimes
7:36 am
tempering with them so when it comes to the autopsies as well he would just give just you can't go in that you don't have access to the police themselves carry out those autopsies so what we had to do what i had to do is go back to what journalists have always done ask questions go around find neighbors chase down victims and corroborate independently the claims that they're and one of the most interesting things i found that you have seen in the report is what's happening on fish media what's happening on facebook where the police themselves said to upload pictures is to brag about the executions so yeah that was one one of the things that i found that very very disturbing report the forensics expert that you spoke to in your report he said that being poor in kenya is almost a death sentence what's the link between being poor which you can't really blame
7:37 am
yourself for and being killed by the police. when ordered to understand that connection you have to know that crime is rife in nairobi especially in the slums of nairobi some people even cold nairobi ny robbery so that is an issue and the police is supposed to tackle crime and this becomes an issue for the young men living in the slum who are wrapped up in the stereotypes of being criminals of being gang members who are often over whose voice is that over there. so they become easy targets for the police which is under pressure to to fight crime and on top of that the prisons are full it's one of the easiest thing what seems to be easier for the police to get rid of someone in the slum than to arrest them so there is this culture of impunity and in this culture of impunity that the death of these young poor man somehow becomes inevitable now there's an ongoing court case
7:38 am
in connection with the killings of three men back in june of two thousand and sixteen one of them is the renowned lawyer willie c'mon the four police officers were involved implicated in this indicted even what can you tell us about this. it is a very interesting case because it what it is is one that has come into to the public eye because he was a human rights lawyer he was a famous human rights die he was killed alongside his driver and the client that he was representing and the client he was representing was building a case against police so this case shows you how difficult and dangerous it really is to go up against the police he ended up dead as one of the most famous human rights wise that we really can money was killed there were street protests the police of sense announced that they're planning to modernize or at least the government says going to modernize the police force is there any hope of things
7:39 am
changing for the better only if there is a political outcry and that's something that we haven't seen yet apart from in this very prominent case but not in regards to the people living in the slum the local media is too scared to really speak about this and if they do they they name hundreds of people not thousands but we have seen and now investigation and as long as this doesn't happen i don't think that the police for really the fullest to change something about their behavior and any corridor thank you so much for your report and for talking with us this morning to turkey now where hundreds of thousands of people are trying to dig their way out of professional and financial ruin after being sacked in the prose coup crackdown many judges teachers and professors accused of having ties to the coup attempt have seen their reputations destroyed and incomes disappear overnight dozens of academics who publicly criticize the government could face prison here's a look at some of those who've lost nearly everything but remain defiant.
