is a state of the news live from pakistan's top court frees a christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy islam as protesters take to the streets calling for mother of two aasia baby to be returned to jail while others called for the deaths of the judges who freed her also on the program. sidelined by chance of a back in the past now hoping it tips to. friedrich met his bid to become leader of germany's christian democrats. joint military exercises in northern europe involving troops from twenty nine member states just scraps the war games as a russian exercise so is the alliance ready for twenty first century conflict.
4:31 pm
welcome to the program a court in pakistan has freed a christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy whether to ask if baby was condemned to hang him twenty ten for insulting islam prophet mohammad since today's ruling thousands of islamist activists blocked roads and ransacked government property in protest with one group even calling for the deaths of the judges overturn the sentence. she has spent most of the past eight years in a prison cell in solitary confinement. bibi has always maintained her innocence the christian farm worker and mother of two was convicted in two thousand and ten of blasphemy she was accused of insulting the prophet mohammed after muslim women from her village objected to her drinking water from their shared class because she was christian bibi then became the first woman to be sentenced to death by hanging
4:32 pm
under pakistan's controversial blasphemy laws but now pakistan's highest court has decided to overturn the verdict and. the ruling was immediately met with angry protests by hard line islamists. the only punishment for a blasphemer is beheading they sound and we won't obey this oppression. the leaders of one islam is party have even called for the death of the judges who ruled in favor of us and bebe's release. her story began in a rural pakistani village but what started here has stirred intense emotions around the world. in the past islamists have murdered some of those who spoke out in her favor. today's reactions show that their anger has diminished a little since her breast nearly ten years ago. yeah baby maddy the aggravator
4:33 pm
yeah. let's get more on this from the heart of the human rights activist in pakistan who joins us from the capital islamabad welcome to team w i know that activists like yourself have been fighting for their results and sasser was sentenced in twenty ten today's news must have been very welcome. thank you very much yes it is a welcome news but the decision itself is explains and confirms some a fuckin sons who just about going to perdition of the law to be using the law. and settling in and private scores and i think it's a very important decision that the supreme court ruling that they have given the sites there is an additional note by one of the judges on the on the panel and that tradition of norte actually. pinpoints the issues with the
4:34 pm
existing law in the criminal procedure court and biased on ok so that. given that this was such a technically detailed ruling do you expect these blasphemy laws to change. that's an important question i believe and not in the short run i would say unfortunately but the thing is that these laws have been misused which takes it beyond that you know the law has problems but the law is misused which complicates and makes the issue more complex i do not particularly personally consider people who have taken to the street to be the real cause i mean because it is you know a danger duction of such such a amendments in the constitution in the constitution provisions that the at and also the criminal procedure of court as i say by gender and that's marching through and the parliaments which said the subsequent fall of millions. of different parties were biased on since then and none of them actually took the issue
4:35 pm
seriously so it is basically the law makers in biased on end a powerful moment in student of the state which who are responsible what lies in the society and creating an issue of this magnitude right so it was about as the way you say it it was a bad law applied badly let's talk about i see a baby she's not technically a free woman but can she really sickly stay in pakistan. i'm not sure really because you know we haven't seen any of the. stain back in by a stand since even if they have not been. charged or even sentenced i mean or even try to i mean there were cases where people who have to go into exile and join the families in exile you know the whole family had to move into exile and unfortunately that is going to be the solution for her family
4:36 pm
we thank you for joining us on how to set khaliq in islamabad thank you for. one of the german chancellor angela merkel's old political rivals has just launched his campaign to succeed her as leader of her christian democratic union party critic matt says one of three high profile candidates vying to lead the center right c.d.u. after the chancellor announced on monday that she will give up the party's leadership after eighteen years in december but stay on as chancellor to matts or sixty two left politics to ten years ago after losing a power party power struggle with the chancellor he dismissed concerns of a new tensions with angle of machall if elected party leader launching his bed he said the c.d.u. has been suffering badly in recent polls and needed to be renewed. it's what the c.d.u.
4:37 pm
needs now is a fresh start it needs renewal. this year you need to engage in forward looking political debate. and in my view that means that the c.d.u. needs to create clarity about its core values. we need to make clear that this is a big tent party of the center and that it will remain that. a party in which those who aspires traditional economically liberal conservative values have their place alongside those who are more socially engaged. now nato is holding its biggest military maneuver since the end of the cold war the aim is to simulate an attack on a member state by an aggressor the complex war game began last week and is called trident juncture and involves all twenty nine nato countries plus finland and sweden the exercises are being held in norway the north atlantic and the baltic sea

the locations being interpreted as a sign to russia with relations still tense over moscow's annexation of crimea back in twenty fourteen it's taken months to get everything in position fifty thousand combat troops and support personnel two hundred and fifty aircraft sixty five ships and ten thousand military vehicles moscow says this is an anti russia exercise w reporter lars sheltie sic is with the troops and the tanks. why. i know. blowing up obstacles. and building bridges in just a few minutes to capabilities that the german army is bringing to try to juncture. but i've these old school skills still needed in times of hybrid warfare and cyber attacks as a result after the ukraine crisis we saw that it is more important to change back

from stability operations to hire tens of thousands of what we see and as an interest to move larger formations and heavy equipment and that's had not been trained and done with within the last ten years far from the russian border germany has set up its operational headquarters in the norwegian hinterlands together with troops from france the netherlands belgium and. germany alone has brought ten thousand soldiers up here to norway and just into tanks weapons and other supplies it's a massive logistical challenge designed to improve the speech with which nato members could in a worst case scenario come to each other's rescue. this huge influx of people and equipment more than fifty thousand soldiers from thirty one countries is a true test for the host nation norway. but the attitude among the public is there really positive support for nato here is among the highest of all member states and
4:40 pm
not just because no way shares a border with russia they're not so afraid that there will be a war nothing but that's a lot of things happening in the world so you never know how so nato is important for us of course well i believe russia has become a big threat in the last two years and i wouldn't need new we need to show where power is this war and the world and i know i could be part of it but it's not like it's something i think about but some of nato has tested. passa teeth are hidden from the public. remote controlled weapon systems. self driving vehicles. military drones. so is this the future of warfare all those capabilities have to be reversible or it means that. the forces can rely on this capability and have have to know how to do
4:41 pm
without those capabilities because they're. all the system can be jammed all destroy all taken by the. by someone else so the military have to to remain reversible. and that's why the airlines are still banking on tanks and boots on the ground battling daunting logistics and the elements here in the frigid no we gen climate. india has unveiled the world's tallest stature prime minister narendra modi inaugurated the monument in a ceremony on patel credited with uniting india after independence from britain in one nine hundred forty seven but it has been mired in controversy with locals angered by the statues high cost and the damage to the environment. he did not manage that and with pomp and tight security india's prime minister narendra modi

4:43 pm
what it calls forgotten leaders but their critics see this as an effort to to appropriate a national hero figure ahead of next year's national election. the four hundred million dollar project has uprooted many residence one hundred eighty five families most of them belonging to local tribes were forced to leave their homes. ahead of the inauguration local chiefs called for modi to stay away and there are reports of activist leaders who have been detained. and despite protests authorities hope this site will be a popular tourist attraction in this remote corner of india. and they are rushing to ensure the area has enough hotels restaurants and other infrastructure to cope with the anticipated rush. well since today is halloween in many places we'll finish with news of

have on the truth don't see ghosts don't have cause they don't feel it a key quote by a going shooter from the time of his imprisonment maintains that art cannot be modern. and this was an extremely radical claim to make which on the one hand shows the rebellious side of this very young painter. and at the same time summarizes the essence of viennese modernism which was not a modernism that promised a glorious future or claim to improve the human condition or bring mankind happiness but. it was far more and introspection are returned to one's inner self with that. is a self-critical modernism it take that in them in the known and it was this return
4:46 pm
to the self they gave modernist viennese art a power and an appeal that other art movements were lacking in their lives peacefully perc in three souls good is of no book. the meal plug museum in vienna houses the world's most comprehensive collection of works by a gun see that. the old collective would have begun acquiring the oil paintings washes and drawings in the one nine hundred fifty s. his passion for the austrian paint his serve to revive interest in an artist who otherwise may well have been forgotten. if all males believe i was and not just with an enormous practice i also had three children and a crazy husband i don't mean that disparagingly but in the sense that he could take a huge one thousand things he said right from the start that he was
4:47 pm
a great artist who was not appreciated. that back in the one nine hundred fifty s. no one gave she ever thought. you could export and import his works without austria's federal monuments authority taking any interest and people said my husband was crazy collecting she was when. she was what. she said the standard set the standard for the generations of contemporary artists who followed him in the twentieth and twenty first century as he set new rules for artists he said an artist is self sufficient a rebel and all voluntary black and agitator an artist works for no one but himself shield his works were considered obscene and we know he spent a brief time in jail but in reality his works were exactly the opposite they were characterized by an almost painful clarity and openness a rawness and purity. and when you see the pictures here you notice that he
4:48 pm
actually approached all of his subjects his flowers nudes and landscapes all in the same way always with the same empathy and devotion went ok i think. she is naked truth is effective for another vienna museum the other betina its director has a knack for staging exhibitions that pull in the crowds. he acknowledges a deep personal fascination with shiva is peter isn't a platitude of those to say that any serious encounter with art offers a window of self discovery a confrontation in which we wrestle with the existential questions that affect us is a platitude it's a big claim and very often exaggerated but it's true of aegon sheila i don't think anyone can view a single one of his news without questioning not just the artist's stance on sexuality nudity and vulnerability but their own as well that. if you find the
4:49 pm
right. words. for me for me the emotional encounter with a gun sheila's work is due not only to the delight i take of his incredible virtuosity as an artist but also an encounter and a confrontation with myself just. legend has it that a gun she never used any razor and needed very little time to produce a drawing sometimes no more than a few minutes. right at this enormous energy. was it an act of liberation and if so from what. the world's leading experts on a gone sheila is jane cally of from new york. city these questions is closely
4:50 pm
linked to the vienna academy of fine arts. for sheila obviously the. principal fear. for expressing human existence in all of its diversity and complexity was the human body. i think that he was one of the greatest first students of and then masters of the human form he could draw it with perfect accuracy but since he had such a complete command over the body he could also bend it and move it and distort it and make it tell a story and i think sheila was very interested to
4:51 pm
explore this question people look at his war. and they say my goodness. it's so terrify it's so ugly and he even comments that i have doubtless pated terrible pictures do they believe i did it on purpose just to shock the borsch was see this is never been the case but there are specters that are brought forth by longing and i have painted such specters not because i enjoyed it i just had to. memories of it on sheila's childhood in the his death place the austrian town of turin on the down new. heavy steam trains shook the sheila family home by gratian
4:52 pm
could be seen and felt in the apartment. and trains with the subject of young a guns first drawings. his father other of c. that was station master in tune a key role in the austria hungary and empire. a hot tempered man he sensed his son's exceptional talent very early on. and you can see through the syfy that see this unit those one very revealing story is where having noticed how his son spent all his time drawing it off she loved one in a drawing pad and told him that every day after doing his latin homework he should draw picture on one page and then he'd look at it when it was filled. eight of sheila evidently thought this would give him a few weeks peace. he gave a go on the exercise book in the morning when he returned home for lunch he saw
4:53 pm
that all the pages had already been filled and that they were strewn all over the apartment. he had a fit and burnt the drawings. this story tells us that a gun father was willing to foster his son's talent but only on his own terms. in other words the father specified that one hour a day would be sufficient to foster his son's artistic talents. so you see a guy who didn't have mozart's father otherwise eight of sheila would have taken his cue from his son and realized that what he was offering in terms of fostering a dance talent was nowhere near enough. by all appearances the family led a comfortable middle. the three children grew up in safety and prosperity. but even today these rooms seem to tell
4:54 pm
a different story. around the year one thousand nine hundred eight dollars she live began to suffer from the symptoms of untreated syphilis. as he succumbed to insanity the family stable life became unhinged. who are you and what are you doing here. i'm getting. i was born here in one thousand nine hundred. fifty and i make on this youngest sister i think that's where he slept out of the over there in the corner on the other side is melanie's bed she was that elder sister you lived here for many years what memories do you still have
4:55 pm
feelings have to stop before so much happened here but i can't remember it all they say you and your brother and sister had a very comfortable life you things happened my father his deceased. we didn't really understand what was happening life was perhaps melanie knew more do you want to tell us about it. yes he so often but still you have a vet. we children must already have been asleep when suddenly we heard loud noises coming from my parents' bedroom where they arguing just arguing my mother of all people arguing with my father no she was patient's best son
4:56 pm
a five she put up with everything so what happened. for you man he lit a fire i heard him opening the stove door and be off then i got up it was the middle of the night five my father was burning stacks of paper i didn't know what exactly was that of his people i only found out later that he burned all of our shareholdings so. the glare from the fire fell on his face he. faced those scientists all the illuminated face of a father who had gone mad and so it was like to give out and fight us. how did you handle it did you talk to your brother about it but i talk about it
4:57 pm
with whom. by then my brother was living in close tonight. we never discussed my father i was shown that look at work that was his way of talking about it. art historians spend a lot of time trying to decode she lives off an enigma and allegorical iconography . is the key to his in a world. the art center in the small town of google near vienna was once a psychiatric institute that used therapy as a form of treatment for its patients today it's an onsite assisted living facility called the house of artists which enables patients to live independently as they
4:58 pm
pursue artistic work the intensity of the works under splay here is reminiscent of sheila and i are those living. the life you lead was born into wasn't necessarily a good morning he was a hard struggle. as a child he witnessed his father's outings to vienna to visit prostitutes contract the disease that ultimately destroyed him and the whole family around kirkland family for. after failing his classes egon schiele was sent to a new school in close to annoy book in one nine hundred two at the age of twelve he now only spent the weekends with his family in turin but he continued to struggle at school and had to repeat a grade for the second time. in the years nine hundred four and nine hundred five hundred with the hosts next family. this son peter was
4:59 pm
a renowned doctor and researcher in the field of radiology. the mysterious images illuminating the in the workings of the human body captivated fourteen year old egon a fascination that resurfaces in his art disprove the center of the back then very few people had access to x. ray images they were exclusively available to specialists they could be projected in a lecture hall via an epi di a scope that was possible but they weren't widely viewed by the public like they are today so there was very little public awareness about x. rays. and it's likely that his personal relationship with holtz connect was formative for sheila. because it gave him this privileged access to x. rays and. she
5:00 pm
was primary focus was on composition she left interpretation to others hands are an important means of expression and feature prominently in she lists work but despite countless interpretation attempts their message remains an enigma. perhaps clues to their meaning can be found at vienna's crime museum a place packed with eerie and sinister exhibits and fascinating records of hands that could lead us back to a gun sheila. but i think what i have here in front of me is what's known as a criminal's album. such albums were put together to document the mug shots of sentence criminals being held in city jails. in. the hands of course have always played
5:01 pm
a major role in criminal investigations. as hans can have telling markings. and best of all. i should. attend smith for instance will have to pick us marks on his thumbs from constantly pressing down on the metal. and a cobbler will have marks on the balls of islam from holding a shoe hammer. the so different criteria served as identifying features common. hands in various positions feature prominently in these photos really does. and it can't be ruled out that sheila was influenced by this defining feature of criminal record photography to feel full to conservation of momentum. after his father's death sheila moved with his mother to vienna in one thousand and six to live with his well situated maternal uncle and guardian check. also
5:02 pm
a railway official he allowed his sixteen year old nephew to rent his first studio . his uncle was a member of the n.s.a. patrician class with its policies and music. his life style met a lasting impression on. the family agreed to allow a gun to drop out of school and pursue a career as an artist sheila took the entrance examination to the academy of fine arts and passed with distinction in october nine hundred six at the age of sixteen he became its youngest student. she lived in this home ways too smart and too fast for the academy and very often the teacher would give. long assignments you know of a project that they would have several hours to work on and he would come in at the
5:03 pm
last minute and do it you know ten fifteen minutes what the other students had been working on for hours. very very quickly. outgrew the cademy and of course his professor creep in carol hated hair for that because he didn't listen. he had his own mind and. someone who was such an upstart was a bad influence for the other students as well she was frustrated by the academy's conservative as. he left the school in one thousand and nine without a diploma and founded the noise all new group with other dissatisfied students. the exhibitions attracted interest among those impressed by the nineteen year old's personal style was close to.
5:04 pm
this seemingly trivial and basic watercolor of a new girl is probably one of the most revolutionary works from the start of a great career. painted in one nine hundred ten it's part of the now largely lost series. the subject was sheila's fifteen year old sister getty so he probably had to choose her because he couldn't afford other models. the totally unnatural coloring the bill years green and yellow in the face the blood red stumps that we see here they mark the birth of expressionism. the artist has dared to defy the law of imitation the subject itself breaks taboos its depiction of the exposed genitals stops at nothing but this is not pornography to be looked at in secret so to speak. so no it's a work of art indeed it's
5:05 pm
a key piece not only of early austrian expressionism but also of a gun she was entire. so. even. today she exhibitions don't come with signs barring admissions for girls and young women as they did in the us as late as the one nine hundred seventy s. but how is this charged as it is with erotic energy sieved by the public today can modern sensibilities stomachs sexually explicit work hard tom. foreman explains have no problem with explicit depictions. i think it's good if there's a place in society where such things can be addressed and shown. a place for open and sensible discourse. where the full emotional impact of such
5:06 pm
