you've. visited every news live from berlin italy asco place a dispute with its neighbors over migrants the populace government in rome says the e.u. must change the rules on rescues and see if your name will close its ports to all vessels carrying refugees. also coming up the east german city of camden braces for more demonstrations as far right nationalists gear up for another protest. and he says he was tortured in prison now his fate is causing international concern we take a closer look at bobby one ugandan pop musician turned opposition politician who is
10:01 am
taking on the country's political elite. i'm sumi so much gonda good to have you with us italy is stepping up pressure on its european partners to take more migrants rescued at sea italy's defense minister elisabetta trend to announce that she will ask fellow e.u. defense ministers to rotate the ports that migrants disembark at calling on other countries to share the load that used joint naval mission the mediterranean operation sophia was created to target people smuggling but it has rescued thousands of people since its launch in two thousand and fifteen now under current rules operation sophia brings all of those rescue to italy and rome says that that practice is no longer acceptable once it changed or else it could stop accepting migrants. they use chief diplomat federica mongering he says it's
10:02 am
a divisive issue and one that e.u. states need to tackle together here's what she said a short while ago the issue of how to share the management of migration flows that is not an issue for one single country but is a common european issue this is why we have a european union operation and this is why i believe that even if it's a very difficult discussion. it would be good if member states considered taking more responsibility so respect but it's a difficult discussion i don't see with the ministers how much political space we have to move forwards for european defense ministers are meeting in vienna today for the second day of talks and after trying to announcement operation sophia is likely to be the number one item on the agenda let's go right to our correspondent barbara very so she is covering the talks for us in vienna today hi barbara so operation sophia was supposed to prevent people smuggling and further deaths at sea
10:03 am
why is it only pushing to have this changed. italy has such an ultimatum to the european union and that runs in fact out tomorrow so defense ministers are under quite some pressure to come up with a solution however so far as things seem to be quite intractable it's really doesn't want to accept the vessel itself its european neighbors which are engaged in emissions of fear anymore in their own harbors they say somebody else should take up france for instance or space. for malta and sort of relieve it from the burden to have having to take in all those migrants not the point is that the figures have as we all know gone down drastically this year so this is a political issue it is not really anymore about thousands and thousands of people arriving in italian ports but it is it an issue that the interior minister. is
10:04 am
pushing day and night he wants to completely close off italy's from the italy from the arrival of all any migrants and that includes emissions of so it's a important political symbol for italy how are other e.u. countries likely to respond to at least request. the problem is that so far they have not found any volunteers. neither the french government nor the spanish has said ok wheels sort of take over from italy because the rule so far of course have been and that's the. rules of international law that the harvest that are closed and that is in case it should leave mostly sicily in this case to the libyan coast are supposed to take in those vessels that was rescued people on board however italy now really wants to use force there is blackmail in the room italy is the threatening to not to agree to the next e.u. budget to not pay its fees to the european union and so on and so forth which is
10:05 am
for the whole he's doing the atmosphere at the moment there seems to be not really a way out however if they don't find a solution missions of the mall this is at its and you know the bottom line here is that the italian government is saying it is important to distribute migrants picked up at sea within the e.u. are they getting anywhere with that point. they have been getting in. somewhere by using more or less blood pressure during the last weeks and months because if you look at the last migrant boats that have been coming in they've been waiting. for days and days and then finally they were distributed among the e.u. member states even albania has lost around taking in a couple of people so yes they are getting somewhere. they are the way they are dealing with the european partners really is causing
10:06 am
a lot of bad blood and so it seems that the fia might actually be sort of running to run to ground and the whole thing be pushed onto the libyan coast guard libya getting the sole responsibility to save people who are at sea and that would constitute a breach of international law as we know the fate of migrants being pushed back to libya so you really is in a bind here in italy is not moving at all all right barbara basal reporting for us from the end i thank you barbara. reich wing groups are again expected to take the streets of the east german city of camden today some twenty people were injured earlier in the week when around seven thousand protesters many of them far right nationalists clashed with left wing demonstrators after a man was stabbed to death here's a look at what life is like for residents of cabinets where violence and hatred of foreigners has dominated headlines for the past few days. a snapshot of daily life
10:07 am
in kemet to look cool runs a cafe in an art center it's a bit of an ivory tower he says here things are fine. but he also knows the city has a problem with right wing radicals. we don't see marauding bands of murderous nazis in the streets every day but things happen and instrumental liars it and use it as a pretext to whip up a crowd. last sunday eight hundred took to the streets in response to the killing of a man the night before on monday the far right scene mobilized about five thousand demonstrators and they were not just locals the rally wasn't about mourning the dead man it was a protest. the state premier of saxony is coming to camp in its later today to hold a town hall meeting. and then going to what would you like to tell him about what's been going on here. that he's totally misunderstood the situation and that he's out
10:08 am
of his depth this is given the right wing radicals a platform and they're rallying their forces it wasn't just people from community on monday but from all over germany i find up painful. is there a general sense of frustration among local people are there problems with refugees here this man's answer shows how rejection of neo nazis and concern about the presence of foreigners in kenya it's not always so far apart what's it like living here she was on. this is not what i expected. i like to sit in the park when the weather's good but i see more and more foreigners there and they behave as if the time belongs to them. and they don't sit on the benches but on the backs of the benches with their feet on the seats drinking beer. that's not acceptable. i'm not a right winger but it bothers me it's just not right the speech if this was. a
10:09 am
city theatre companies rehearsing for a video with dunces from twenty four countries we ask if they feel they're under threat they say no. but in fact. it's not that simple. that it ends up looking probably we tell them they should try to avoid any possible problems if they go home late they should go home together are not alone of course they're all trying to cope with the situation because. it's not easy and kennett's living together takes practice we have some catching up to do. most people we talked to here say they want to have nothing to do with the far right demonstrators but there is something that bothers them they feel marginalized the mail office analysis. of the city has changed it will take a while for some particularly the elderly i would say to get used to the way things are nowadays it's different now. and in the meantime nobody seems to have an answer
10:10 am
to that question what with all the heated debate the thirty five year old killed on saturday night is no longer the focus of attention flowers and candles but no crowd of mourners. our political correspondent covering this story for us and she joins us in our studio hi nina we heard such mixed opinions in that report we heard one man criticizing politicians and the far right but also saying there are too many foreigners in chemist's how do you explain that. well sumi i feel reminded of our trip to greystone where we covered the demonstration together last year if you remember those statements a very very similar they sound very familiar people say i'm not a new nazi but there is an increased presence of foreigners and i just don't like that and the statistics do show that fear of foreigners is highest in areas where there are few foreigners so saxony has a share of only four percent that is very low compared to some twelve percent say
10:11 am
in the west but then also candidates for example has a slightly higher share and you hear those statements also in areas where people just don't meet the native population if you will the germans don't really get to know those foreigners because they can't find jobs and allowed to work etc which is also why the national government our government is working on an immigration bill that should make it easier for people to find jobs who know the onus is now on politicians and the regional leader the state premier michel he's holding something of a town hall in a football stadium today and he's going to have to have his work cut out for him is that he's going to have to deal with all of these different opinions well that event was planned a long time ago is an event part of the citizens dialogue as they call it the cd use my is a member of a. conservative party the c.d.u. they lost tremendously in last year's general election. especially in saxony and
10:12 am
going out to talk to the people and say ok we got the message what do you want to talk about what are your concerns so this is part of this event is going to take place in a football stadium that could host fifteen thousand people a very strict security there and also a counter demonstration by the far right pro candidates group yet what can we expect there we are going to see another far right demonstration and likely another counter demonstration from the left wing well of course we've seen how the far right has managed to mobilize protesters from all over the country in a very very short amount of time we saw that on monday we saw how the police were overwhelmed how the authorities completely underestimated what was going to happen of course also the events from this week have mobilized the other side so there will be a pro democracy rock concert next week but of course that will be big come to demonstrate demonstrations that today as well we can only hope that the authorities have learned their lesson and that enough police people will be on the ground to
10:13 am
keep the groups apart all right our political correspondent nina hoss and you know thank you so much. that some other stories making headlines around the world german chancellor angela merkel has begun a three day tour of west african countries with a visit to senegal merkel met with senegalese president macky sall in the capital dakar the german chancellor is calling for further investment in the region which is the origin of many migrants who journey to europe she's heading to ghana on thursday. u.s. president donald trump has defended his handling of the hurricane maria aftermath in puerto rico and he faced criticism after the island's official death toll from the two thousand and seventeen storm was raised from sixty four to nearly three thousand some authorities on the u.s. territory of call the federal government's response disastrously inadequate. a large fire has engulfed a warehouse in melbourne australia the blaze broke out around five am local time and authorities have warned residents to seek shelter over concerns of toxic smoke

known as bill b. one artist has demanded his release after hearing about these alleged torture while under our wrist. interview will be one toward d.w. about his role in uganda supporting ticks nobody should look at me as a messiah nobody should look at me as a solution i'm just part of the puzzle i knew that i was that is watching me he also part of that puzzle i cannot do it unless if we choose to do it to get that and yes that is this solution because if we are to attain. what we want as a country they need to give them. a large majority of ugandans population is under twenty four and many see the thought the six year old hopes to as their voice so when they look at bobby when he's presenting me. is a voice of me as a youth because me to only use because what do you think is real and it is this
10:16 am
scene will come from politically and socially he speaks a lot of things and but naturally speaking i wouldn't. say that he inspires me like. going to the street song doing whatever has been doing because they're either ways of handling things yeah but very present my voice really represents my voice because it talks about the things that i think. and he's a you with he talks about unemployment education or option despite the supports a but b. one enjoys especially among young people mainly because beetle campolo present during the seventy's government seems to have a different perspective of their margin politician who is also bottling treason charges in court does a bit of a hole about what that moment and i don't think it is largely that that he's even viewed as the president to be or of course there's been
10:17 am
a lot of framing around events our own him. by his group and he's one hundred laws where he's been portrayed largely as a victim but this is just a fleeting moment and it will probably pass. but the wind was voted to parliament last year in a by election where he defeated four challengers including one backed by president must've in. less than two years in office this singer has been strongly critical of government. anyone who is a serious political needs to see to buck. and evaluate that quote is will be weighing drip presented when he talks about people power you know what is he trying to say is in there any. weight in the one that he's expressing us today right and shouldn't the president get keyed.
10:18 am
