3:02 pm
ahead of an e.u. summit this sunday which is major depression to return to the u.k. with a final deal but a parliament can agree to she's facing heavy criticism at home from probe from pro a you lawmakers last week two of her senior ministers resigned her of the draft withdrawal deal that she'd negotiated on the following term home almost left to a leadership challenge the prime minister's critics accuse her of giving him to be e.u. i.m.f. because if you do have a safe spot for britain. to brussels on london that correspondent get mousies in london go matters is brussels welcome both so would you. tell us about the sort of pressure that tourism is under. well if there is a my ever forgets the sort of pressure she's on the she just has to come here to the house of commons which she did which she did just a little while ago to prime minister's questions and really tumultuous scenes in the house of commons m.p.'s from all parties and from one side of the bridge to
3:03 pm
divide her to renegotiate this deal so reminding her that this is not enough bricks it is thing that she has tied a self indefinitely to the e.u. much too closely and for there remain as the deal is not good enough and she's giving away too much clout too much bargaining pressured to the e.u. in order to negotiate the next step which is the flight of the and so everybody is just hammering at series of may at the moment. to sit in brussels what sort of concessions is the e.u. likely to allow to reset made to take back to tolerant. look i would say that the u.s very keen to avoid a scenario where you could say oh they have not given us any more concessions so there is some will to compromise minds here however not on the divorce part of the agreement on the political declaration that is part of that huge document i see some wriggle room where john breaux juncker could draw a fluffy picture of
3:04 pm
a clear very close relationship something that could help to reason may sell this controversial backstop because she could say we have a we'll we'll have prospectively a very close relationship with the use of the facts that will never come into action. burgomaster is a fluffy picture likely to be enough to silence stories amaze critics. picture and warm words is i don't thing is going to be enough i don't really see what kind of concessions the e.u. could make in order to calm down everybody here at home because the fundamental problem will stay the fundamental problem is that for everybody who wanted bricks if they were not to accept anything that reason they has in mind which ties the ties the u.k. closely to the e.u. also in the future potentially in the customs union for an indefinite number of years that will never go down well with the bric city areas and for the remaining as any deal is going to be was then the deal that u.k. has at the moment so there are several that are fighting for
3:05 pm
a second referendum and to reason they need to get this deal through parliament at some point in the next weeks it's going to be very very tricky for for her at this point in time. in london thank you for now i go to sit in the brussels stay with us if you would as we take a look at another headache facing brussels this time italy the european commission's rejected the latest draft about countries a project opening the door to disciplinary proceedings including significant fines for oh and a freeze on a u. funding the country's a populist government has been at loggerheads with brussels or spending plans for months robot use it needs to stimulate the economy and offered him some rest by after years of austerity brussels sesa tough and spending is out of control of what is the size of the country's proposed deficit could spark another debt crisis that couldn't go the entire european union. so we're talking about the
3:06 pm
third largest economy in the eurozone how big a problem is this going to be for the commission. phil you name it third largest economy so too big to fail too big to save and that really is the concern if you put it in in a nutshell on the part of the european commission a country that is so indebted is what commission has said today is very vulnerable to all sorts of risks and in recession in italy could draw the entire euro zone into trouble and that is something that ministers would like to avoid now they've drawn this picture today that we're all in the boat and we all have to play by the rules and they really want to make sure that that is the case there's two occasions now where the member states of the eurozone can still hold this process where they will have a chance for a veto and at the end of the day they really all hope that it will be market pressure that forces italy's hands rather than the e.u. fiscal rule book so there's no way if they could just sit there and say that said
3:07 pm
we're not doing it and you can't make us well that's exactly what. you had been has been doing in the past then it is likely that that will continue so if you asked more for my opinion i think member states will go forward with this process and in the next couple of months we see this fiscal deficit process being started if we will finally see those fines coming in italy it would take months it could take half a year until italy really faces have to find and by then that is the hope market pressure will have forced italy's hand again mathes in brussels thank you. ben house of war on this a budget probes in brussels and romesha just sort it out like men in the car park. no that's not the way they do things i don't know this is never happened before it's a collision course that's been set up between brussels and the commission now inviting
3:08 pm
eurozone countries once more to examine its assessment in two weeks' time if they agree with it the commissioners launch a procedure that could result in those fines that we just heard about for. if push comes to shove and brussels begins an excessive deficit procedure. then italy could face a fine as high as three point five billion euros brussels is insisting the southern european country it hears to e.u. budget rules and it's turning up the pressure. to. make even more. but so far italy is not changing course the government wants to deliver on campaign promises which include early retirement and increased spending on social services the problem is italy's debt as high as one hundred thirty percent of gross domestic
3:09 pm
product only greece has an even higher debt level e.u. regulations cap any country's debt at sixty percent of annual economic output financial markets are alarmed front pages warn of rising interest rates and banks are worried there are powerful players in any budget debate as they can close the spigot at any time and dry up the government spending on the streets the mood is tense to be the result of the think they were discussing this with the appropriate seriousness we should brace for the worst. i think we're on the wrong track the governments make promises that can't you kept them and now we're moving in the wrong direction and. on wednesday both the government statistics office and the o.e.c.d. lowered their growth outlook. meanwhile consumption is down as people hold on to their money as do companies who seem unwilling to make any new investments all of that hampers growth leading to falling tax revenues higher taxes and in the end
3:10 pm
even higher debt. the cornerstone of the budget is a citizen's wage rome wants to hand out ten billion euros to the poorest italians so they can spend it we asked economist alessio test see if that could really boost growth. i think that even in the most benign scenario this will have only short lived positive impacts on growth over the next year perhaps but this does nothing to address italy's long standing growth problems which are more structural in nature eateries a country where g.d.p. growth has been flat basically throughout the past twenty years and there's nothing in this budget that tries to address this in a more structural long term way. a sharp drop in the price of oil is sending ripples through the global economy
3:11 pm
a financial correspondent and the vice is tracking the story from frankfurt we've seen this downward trend for a number of weeks now have we. yes we have seen that down the trend for a number of we ever since october third. friend has oil has lost some twenty five percent in value and that's because investors all of a sudden realized wait a moment next year the economy's going to cool down and bet also will mean that oil demand will slow down and that the same time we have record supply from the law itself saudi arabia but also the united states and russia so that mix has added to a huge concerns over the high price of oil which at the beginning of october was still at a four year high but having said that they've seen a slump late yesterday today is a bit more of a benign market reaction or it is up by one percent. and then to pick chances
3:12 pm
of a supply busiest time. it is a tricky one it's a very political opec meeting in december which will take place in december sixth because clearly everybody has a wide hill interest to support prices meaning they are malls likely will announce a production caught analysts expect a production of up to one point four million barrels per day but at the same time we have now u.s. president from backing saudi arabia somewhat and we old know that the president from has a while interest of keeping the oil price pretty low because that is helping him politically at the home front so now analysts are saying with saudi arabia being backed by the united states this supply could actually be a little lower than previously expected about all matters equal most likely opec

for the murder of a u.s. based journalist this cia has concluded that saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin salomon directed the murder of one of his critics jamal khashoggi president trump said the economic advantages of good relations with the kingdom outweighed i've weighed all other considerations. it's been called a slap in the face to the cia u.s. president trump siding with saudi arabia against his own intelligence agencies the cia is reportedly confident the saudi crown prince was behind the murder of writer jamal khashoggi but trump says he's not risking washington's relationship with riyadh over the matter they did make a determination. just like i said i think it was very maybe maybe he did they did not make that assessment the cia is looked at it they've studied it a lot they have nothing definitive and the fact is maybe he did baby did right
3:16 pm
now we have oil prices in great shape i'm not going to destroy the world economy and i'm not going to destroy the economy for our country by big bullet with saudi arabia so. these images show shock she entering the saudi consulate in istanbul on october second just before he was murdered in saudi arabia claims it was rogue agents who killed him they say crown prince mohammed bin solomon had nothing to do with it but it will come up. in washington turkey's foreign minister pressed for a full accounting of the killing after talks with the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o. edward other it is our right to get more information if there is an impossible the investigation comes to a standstill or we cannot fully cooperate then we may have to apply for an international inquiry. but even amid demands to punish saudi arabia over the killing trump's comments could end the debate over how his administration will
3:17 pm
respond to the matter the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia is highly profitable with billions of dollars and arms sales every year critics say that's allowing riyadh to get away with murder. and we'll start with you know if it states for our next story which involves the shooting death of a chicago doctor earlier this week which is up the ante in an ongoing route between america's medical community and the country's national rifle association issue is the extent to which gun violence in the u.s. is a public health concern the debate is staying out is playing out social media and the w.'s calmness one could tell us a couple so how to don't just become a target for the out of the right i mean doctors have really been increasingly active on this issue of gun control the u.s. actually ranks second in the world in total gun related deaths in twenty sixteen it was more than thirty seven thousand and that's prompting major us medical
3:18 pm
organizations one of them recently called gun violence a public health crisis that requires the nation's immediate attention so comments like that are really getting the end arrays attention and they responded recently with this tweet take a look at what the n.r.a. said this says well someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to quote stay in their lane which basically means mind your own business the medical community seems to have consulted no one but them selves that really hit a nerve with many in the medical community specifically after that shooting you mentioned on monday at a hospital chicago that killed one doctor and a few others as well so doctors stay in their late while doctors would say absolutely we all are in our lane and in fact you know we're seeing medical professionals across the us essentially sharing stories. images of what they recall is their lane saying you know this is our job is to deal with gun violence and
3:19 pm
here's some of those messages that they're sharing on social media one here writes on twitter jeff any idea how many bullets i pull out of corpses weekly this isn't just my lane it's my effing highway others posting images like this one from the operating table itself a neurosurgeon posting this image of a bullet apparently taken from the brain of a six month old baby who ended up dying and another startling picture here of blood stained boots and scrubs of a surgeon who writes this is what it looks like to stay in my lane i speak for this patient for their parents who will never be the same and for every person who came after this one and didn't ask to plenty more images like those that are actually just too graphic to show you others simply addressing the n.r.a. directly one here writing last week the n.r.a. told some era o'neal to stay in her lane that's exactly where she was when she was shot referring to the shooting i've seen countless doctors commenting but shockingly the n.r.a. is silent isn't this new orleans ok so was this feud and there are verses doses
3:20 pm
which is going well the n.r.a. they've stayed quiet since that first week they haven't commented but doctors now are essentially calling for dialogue between the medical community and the n.r.a. in fact they've released now this petition it has about forty thousand signatures from a health care group called firm and it calls on the n.r.a. to be part of the solution and they say we're not as i gun we're anti bullet hole let's work together. really work together likely not it's a very contentious issue and it's not going to be going away anytime soon but hopefully there can be some sort of dialogue. with thank you. china. correspondent has filed an exclusive report about a stolen child on his mother's four year mission to find him kidnapping and child trafficking is a significant problem in china but the government doesn't like to talk about it since it's part of the result of laws restricting the number of children couples can have and of traditional attitudes to boys and girls which place more value on
3:21 pm
boys than girls. report. i'm nervous more than anything i want to see my son again. but i can't fully let myself believe i will have too many doubts. huntingdon has been looking for her son much and for four years she was kidnapped by human traffickers with the help of her ex-husband and his family in high on a sprawling metropolis in eastern china the authorities have said that much chen will be returned to her but they've broken their promise before and she fears they will again. on her way to court with her younger son yet. she's asked authorities for help on numerous occasions but she's never received any on the contrary she's convinced there was a cover up. a year ago tenting ging discovered that her son with chen was sold to
3:22 pm
a village in shandong province she thought he was living with a family there. have you seen this child. i know you know and i can tell you that the villagers refused to give her information that. this child is mine my mother in law sold him. i've been searching for him for three years. who's seen him. the story began in an outskirt of han where tung dinging lived with her husband. a court summons has brought her back here the authorities have promised that she will be allowed to pick up with chen. filming in court is forbidden tending jenas told the family has once again refused
3:23 pm
to return the boy. telling him do these people have trusted. why you know i have custody and i haven't seen my son in four years you don't do anything you don't uphold the law you keep messing with me. suddenly tangent smashes a bottle and holds a shard of glass to our throat. villages where you go i called my sister before i smashed the bottle you know i told her that if she doesn't hear back from me before three pm she should come here and get the boy we need i knew they wouldn't give me back my child the only option i have left is the final option i told them that if i don't get my son back today i will die here she is a master of what general has a shower yes. her ultimatum pays off. is returned to her it's the first time in four years that she says. he immediately bonds with
3:24 pm
his younger brother. about what do you have here. just. to show our viewers here they wrote their number and. then you know i'm still scared. i need to. maybe they'll try to kidnap him again. and that would be the worst thing for me i'm so happy right now my son is alive. but i also still have that terror and my parents. are going to. feel the night has passed. didn't get homesick for the other family

their phone number has been washed clean from his arm. well. tanja wants to take her children and return to her home province. but. without the d.v.r. . she hasn't been able to hold a steady job over the past years she used to work in restaurants and so snacks at the roadside. that now she'd like to go back to work. tending ging is eager to leave on as quickly as possible she wants to get out of the place where her son disappeared but first he gets a snack. i want another mama. of the mama he calls me mama.
3:26 pm
would have gotten something to easily cause my mama. it isn't clear how many children disappear every year in china the authorities don't publish figures. parents rarely succeed in getting their children back again. spent four years trying to get her son back at last they've been reunited. well as you just heard the chinese government does not publish official figures for kidnapping and child trafficking so we asked beijing correspondent of a task and produce that report to assess the scale of the problem. it is not clear how many children in china are trafficked every year estimates range from twenty thousand to two hundred thousand researchers who took a look at cases suggest that up to forty percent of them were sold by their own families they are sold either to criminal gangs or to families in the countryside
3:27 pm
for these families it is important to have a son so there is a market especially for boys family planning policies restrict the number of children that each woman can have so when a family already has two daughters they often resort to these criminal methods to have their son. but yes but i know still to come ahead on d.w. news iraqis may be returning to moes old but the former islamic state stronghold is far from safe make some of the experts tasked with clearing the city of thousands of unexploded devices from. time type inflation and food and not medicine shortages are taking their toll on venezuela now made us make up for macy's luxury which few can afford. to have those stores so often there is no world's news business i'm suppose all the way on the

3:31 pm
a collision course. now in the so-called islamic state was driven out of iraq it left behind enormous quantities of deadly munitions and landmines with many public buildings booby trapped so before the huge task of rebuilding the country can take place a un team is going through huge mounds of rubble trying to remove the dangerous hidden in the ruins. in the first in the year in the first nine months of this year alone u.n. experts have made safe some sixteen thousand bombs rockets and hundreds more improvised explosive devices including nearly eight hundred suicide belts it's also made safe up to three hundred fifty booby traps early this year the w.'s birkett assured travel to iosif former iraqi stronghold of mosul for a look at the danger beneath the ruins. this used to be a city shops homes this used to be western most of. the rubble is
3:32 pm
strewn with decaying bodies and unexploded bombs. that are to cut their have lived through the fighting she and her family spent two weeks in the siege in their home directly opposite the famous and norry mosque that's where i asked titus hit from the international coalition the coalition bumpus city around here. ok little guy is nothing and no one was spared i was death and bombs and explosions everywhere it simply didn't stop it was awful i got out in the future. they fled but was no where else to stay they soon had to return back to their ruined neighborhoods to the two rooms of their house which were still intact now they rarely venture out fear of the munitions scattered all around them keeps their family a child at a school and you know there are still loads of shells lying around the house
3:33 pm
opposite was destroyed and they found something there a mortar grenade or something it hadn't gone off yet. that. explosives expert mark while barton has been in many crisis regions but he says mosul is something you. they have found many bombs grenades mortars and thousands of traps that high as left on their retreat. they've been very well built but on an industrial scale it's not solved just it. a few people building them even though this has been sort of an industry to build them to this scale and this amount this was and she for hospital it was a modern clinic until i turned it into the headquarters for. the search and
3:34 pm
clearance team worked through it by hand piece for piece meter by meter the u.n. mine action service has sixty people in mosul it's nowhere near enough clue shop but if the are yes hidden explosives so well that if you're not extremely careful you don't see them but if someone goes in somewhere where we haven't been yet and doesn't look out very carefully they can get blown up york is a lot center for jihadi. as more people return it becomes more urgent to clear the deadly explosive still hidden in the debris or at least to mark which areas are safe but none of this is happening fast enough the remnants of the bitter fight for muscle are all over the place. because it was ice this is final stand or what we have found here is a lot of suicide about this is being without a doubt the sort of main threat here. this is what he's talking
3:35 pm
about is suicide belt among the rubble. if you move around the corner if you tell everyone that way around the corner we move out of the danger zone in case it blows up. it's soon clear. the bed had to be packed with metal ball bearings to maximise damage he can clear a street one day but then we're going to go back the next day because people find things in their houses shouldn't move them they do and then we have to really require them the u.n. estimates that the cleanup of muscle will take a decade but the residents don't want to wait that long they are eager to return to their homes. but every shuffle off rabba risk setting off a booby trap rebuilding their homes is fraught with hidden danger. sadness says she's happy that people are coming back to western mosul she hopes that he treats her ning family to increase the pressure on the international community to
3:36 pm
help them rebuild their city. is head of iran my national program in iraq welcome to d.w. we heard the hope expressed that the international community is going to help in this effort in order to get these mines cleared people to get on with their lives is not likely to happen it is we're doing it piece by piece centrally we have teams operating every day in mosul not only mosul but also kirkuk followed john other locations. so bit by bit we're clearing a lot of ammunition what you decide is it's not mines it's actually improvised explosive devices most of them mission that we're finding and also that was fired but failed to function ok so you're we heard in the report that there aren't enough of you why aren't there enough of you it's all a question of funding the funds available competing priorities of course we've had
3:37 pm
a very generous donor community this year but we have course needs this to be sustained when needed to continue for several years to be able to share everything i do physically during the. clearing we saw gentleman that it's just who does what the u.n. does he work for. so i work for the united nations mine action service we coordinate the efforts of implementing partners implementing partners consists mainly of non-governmental organizations and also commercial companies who's working very closely and under court in the nation to commercial companies during this so business isn't that clear that there is a tension then between the desire of people to just go back to their homes and get on with allies and try and rebuild our lives and. but it's not it's not safe yet. if that is that does that cause much of a problem. it does of course it's about one point nine million people who's waiting
3:38 pm
to return so we need to prioritize what is being cleared first and it's not only about clearing houses and private houses it's also about clearing infrastructure and one of our major tossed is to clear critical infrastructure in support of the united nations development programs and the government of iraq so people are you hope to buy electricity water that's exactly sol water plants power plants hospitals as was mentioned schools etc and so far we've done over one thousand one hundred sites of critical infrastructure and we're also about to start doing doing houses which is equally importantly morse so so ones i don't know how it works what the building is clear what the street is cleared is that then safe because i just think about kids wandering around and just discovering something the people have missed is a very good question because in most so we estimate seven point six million tons of debris and rubble from the fighting and we say that about one third of the
3:39 pm
explosive subs are on the surface and two thirds will be under the debris so yes no once we've cleared the surface we can guarantee that the surface cleared but then we need to sift through the debris also and the risk is when people are coming back . construction companies are coming back we have to. they start sifting through the debris and they will find more and this has actually led to us having to return to sites in several locations to clear more explore loads of hazards so. your guys clear that you say that the tough is clear then normal construction people committed and removed because otherwise it's going to take just decades and decades to pick up each case individually absolutely and we're also using armored machinery to sift through the rubble so we're using front end loaders were using excavators to sift through the rubble and see if there are explosive how such in the rubble ok well we wish you well with your efforts. from the u.n. mine action program in iraq thank you very much. this is day to live from still to
3:40 pm
come we'll give you the inside scoop on a new detail new documentary digital warriors tells the stories of four women campaigning for women's rights across the globe. to unlock the mystery of the missing details. as you know fill the market for diesel cars in germany has hit the wall emissions scandal throwing a spotlight on air pollution more and more cities a banning dirty jesus from the center but the unwanted vehicles finding a new home just east of here. diesels are highly popular in ukraine this fox has just arrived from germany it meets euro five emission standards some mechanics take a close look at it they know it will need adapting to ukrainian standards within
3:41 pm
a few months at the latest that's when they'll have to remove its catalytic converter. at the catalytic converters in the particle filters often cause problems they get clogged up very quickly and stop working the diesel quality is too low here. without emissions control systems the diesels pump unfiltered toxic gases and particles straight into the air and because regular inspections for cars are not legally required in ukraine they exhaust systems can be manipulated without fear of detection experienced mechanics can easily remove emissions control units and replace them with a section of straight pipe this one comes from a run on diesel if a converter is clogged up the vehicle won't start. and then we hook it up with a diagnostic computer the problem is very often a clogged up catalytic converter sometimes we cut the converter out sometimes we can repair it. ukrainian city of lots has
3:42 pm
a population of two hundred forty thousand the year is foul and eighty two percent of the pollution comes from cars and trucks. there's an autumn arcades here twice a week trading mostly diesels private operators import the cars mostly from germany . diesels meeting older emissions standards which are registered in poland or lithuania are treated as transit vehicles for up to a year only the later euro five standard cars are actually allowed to be imported. germany worries about the environment and that's why the price of diesel is is falling. germany understands its people and spends a lot of money on environmental protection computers for work or you vertically. throughout the city a number of stations are constantly measuring air quality. the results show that only two of the ukrainian cities have filled the air than here and now let's just
3:43 pm
filling up with substandard german diesels. this is. the air will most certainly become. the diesel the fuel that was so bad for the environment. diesels have become hard to sell in germany and now they're flooding into eastern european markets the germans have simply outsourced their diesel emissions problem. venezuela's economic crisis continues to deepen and just today there's news again of corruption at a national level a former treasurer admitting to receiving a billion dollars in bribes that as regular venezuelans struggled to find the money to pay for food meat for example has become a luxury item that on the few can afford. the scene here appears a delicate but these cows aren't grazing in a meadow they're locked into a courtyard in the venezuelan capital caracas. and sold on the black market and
3:44 pm
this is a fluid neighborhood though resistance against the urban farmers is growing neighbors complained about the smell flies and have concerns about hygiene. i came to verify that what the neighbors were saying was true and it was at that time there were five i arrived at the site on monday and the complaints were from saturday so we think several of the cows there had already been slaughtered and the meat was being sold there without any type of refrigeration and without sanitary measures. per curiam food is a daily battle in venezuela meat is particularly scarce the cows have come a long way to the capital and they're being butchered here in the city where well to do families can afford to pay the high black market rates with the economic crisis deepening. their meat for as much as ten times the government's rate for
3:45 pm
