the european union will hold an emergency breaks it summit to resume a is hoping that her visits today will be enough to convince the rest of the e.u. to give her one more break sit extension this would probably be the last delay on all for to the u.k. and it is safe to say this is the last chance to rescind a has to keep her country from leaving the european union in chaos without a plan for what's ahead. just as with breaks it to resume his arrival at the chancellery didn't go as planned the british prime minister was obviously a little too early that's merkel wasn't there to welcome her it was only up to reason i went inside that both leaders came back out for compulsory handshakes but smiles contact the fact that the german chancellor and other european leaders are urging the british to provide more clarity. this became clear this morning at the
10:34 pm
meeting of a year foreign ministers. and we are waiting finally for substantive steps in the right direction it is to get up to now it's nothing at all has changed and we are of course thinking about an appropriate extension of the deadline and also about a longer extension i must however come with very strict conditionals. cotillion. there's a lot of speculation about what to resume and could offer the e.u. before the end of june what the u. is prepared to give the u.k. room is in london that merkel could be willing to put a five year limit on the backstop have been refuted by the german government and the u.k. would have to take part in european elections in may if it doesn't exit the e.u. before that date after the visit to belinda reason may travel to paris chancellor angela merkel made it clear breaks it could even be extended to the beginning of twenty twenty and i had to french president and manual mckown said a delay within limits was an option. well we have team coverage of theresa may's
10:35 pm
last minute european tour joining me here at the big table is a used it analyst alex forrest whiting correspondent lisa lewis joins me from paris and our very own correspondent is in brussels tonight to all of you welcome barbara let me start with you the european union could very well determine the short term fate of brecht's it tomorrow will there be another brics a delay of course there will be a. what did you expect to really the e.u. has has decided to show patience endless patience and even more patience this is the time to give more time said do not still skew the president of the european council in his invitation letter so what we will have because the conclusions the final declaration after the summit the draft of it is already out what we will get is another extension of the indeterminate length yet the leaders will decide that
10:36 pm
tomorrow night and it will end when ever britain decides or is able to finally ever out of five that was droll agreement and on the other hand it will also not be longer than date x. that we need to still find out so britain will also be tied to certain conditions that means they will have to stop trying to reopen there was draw agreement and there is a so-called boris clause they will have to promise to behave well in the future as long as they are a member of the european union because of course if he is in brussels that future british prime minister may be boris johnson might mean really nasty and show the agony side of british politics in brussels the boys so to speak let me go to huge reserve she stopped in paris today knowing the president is the one power broker with the most delegates about the utility of another briggs delay do we know what.
10:37 pm
well truism may has issued a statement when she said that the talks she was talking about you know the ongoing discussions with labor with the opposition when finding a backing for her deal in parliament and she was also insisting apparently that she was trying to reach trying to avoid participating in e.u. elections and because of the delay now that's going to go down to the wire because e.u. directions are going to take place in six weeks but you know i really hope that was not told she was talking about because in monaco has made it very clear that he will be asking for more on the table if he if the u.k. prime minister wants him to say yes to an extension the french government the french leader is named to have a very tough stance on britain and he has been saying and other politicians here in france also have been saying we're not going to give it for free to her she needs to put something on the table like backing from hahnemann for example that mckown
10:38 pm
is looking rather stern bare in the video with to reason that we know that tourism a was able to tell both macro and miracle that she now has crossed party talks taking place trying to find a missile lucian that can win a majority in parliament but the opposition labor party saying tonight at that after a week of talks basically there is no compromise to speak of is labor along with the government and everyone in parliament are they just simply stalling and waiting to see what theresa may is going to bring back from brussels well yes they have said and elements have asked them why wouldn't you still when you know that you are waiting full of the twenty seven other members of the e.u. to decide your fate but there's more to it than that and the main point between labor and the conservative party so far is that although the government as saying look we have productive meetings with labor labor saying nothing is changing not just because to reason may is still sticking to her red lines and the key red. the
10:39 pm
line that label want her to move on is this customs union she has said that the u.k. should not remain in a customs union with the e.u. they both want it to be a u.k. wide permanent customs union so this is an ongoing battle between them and both sides one something that neither at the moment is prepared to compromise on you've also got the on going labor fair that reason may is going to step down sometime in the future it could be shortly it could be a little bit longer what happens then a bit like what bob is saying with the e.u. how are they going to stop the next leader of the conservative party the next prime minister from undoing anything that they agree with her new labor of their own problems they have to make show that they are appealing to their members their members want it to be a second referendum they do not want really to see that policy doing a deal with the conservative party so this is going to be an ongoing problem it's
10:40 pm
not so straightforward and it's amazing to talk about you know the fear of the bad boys may be seizing power away for you all to watch with me a video now of to resume a arriving today at the chancellor here in berlin maybe we can show that there we go there normally they would get out of a car and therefore would be spared standing to greet her there but today they arrived early and she had to venture into the building before she ran into america last time you may remember made couldn't even get out of her car because the door was stuck i mean do these mishaps do they speak there you see them they finally found each other do they do they speak to may's missteps along this very long road barbara let me take it to you in brussels what do you say after watching the two ladies there finally finding each other. putting that question to me branching of talking about. theories and may not finding her host and all the mishaps like
10:41 pm
letters falling down at party conference. losing a voice in one of the final breaks of debates and paloma no i mean there were other things like invoking article fifteen before you even know what you really wanted what kind of press it or sending you most of q.'s ministers as negotiators to brussels and then wondering why things didn't go so well or maybe is thinking about it not thinking about you majority in parliament when drawing your red lines about rex it or constantly underestimating for instance what i'm going to america would and wanted misjudging what america would and want to do to help you are really under estimating the unity and the cool professionalism of the european union so take your pick if you want to answer the question where did it all go so horribly wrong yeah there's a lot to choose from i guess we could say. brussels. lisa lewis in paris and right here at the big table with me our analyst alex forrest wired to all
10:42 pm
of you thank you very much and well prime minister of tourism a has focused on the lobbying european union leaders for a brics a delay back in britain there is one shared sentiment worth noting among those who want to leave the e.u. and among those who want to stay it is frustration with the entire breaks it process that unites them tonight. muhamad bias is frustrated with brant said ever since the u.k. voted to leave the european union this shopkeeper has been following the news closely hoping for certainty and clarity. but if they decide to do exactly know he's bits of play everybody to know what is the future hold for everybody because we do know what is going on was the extension i believe is more than a month's will take room yes which is no good for the business or news for nobody because if you sing in certain special little business like mohamed a large majority of this cosmopolitan neighborhood voted to remain in the european
10:43 pm
union in the referendum three years ago but unpredictable and unwanted outcomes have taken their toll i thing ok it's just a bit confusing because where we'll sort of left in the dark we don't know what to expect well they can decide they've had three is so. they should let us try again i just wanted to kind of be done really i just resolved you know i think everybody gets sick and tired of carrying on and on and on and i can understand my syrup in some aesthetic second sort of when everybody is pregnant everybody else. ice terrible so for for mass brixton prides itself on its immigrant heritage local shop for food from around the world in this market approaching european stronghold in the south of london that's tired of seeing the political gridlock day in and day out. here in brixton the mood amongst voters has become dark to reason may is asking for yet another extension that the bracks that process could drag on for
10:44 pm
months those that voted to remain in the european union and now hoping for a second referendum or at the u.k. would eventually stay in the european union others and that seems to be the general feeling on the streets in london just want the political infighting to stop and they want to get on with the bracks a process. where he has become the self-appointed gatekeeper the man stan. between the mole a report two years in the making and the american public which paid for it all today u.s. attorney general william barr told a congressional subcommittee that he will release special counsel robert bolos report on russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election next week but it will not be the entire report barr is reserving the right to redact or admit sections that he determines too sensitive for public release and with that a showdown has been set between us lawmakers demanding transparency and the
10:45 pm
attorney general that many see not as a guardian of justice but rather as a guardian for president donald trump the american people have been left with a many with many unanswered questions serious concerns about the processes by which you formulated your letter and uncertainty about when we can expect to see the full report i believe the american people deserve to see the fully port within a week. i will be in a position to release the port to the public and then i will engage with the chairman of judiciary committees about that report about any further requests that they have while we have the complete report by you or are you going to be selective as to what you give members of congress we will color code the exigence from the report and we will provide explanatory notes describing the basis.
10:46 pm
for each redaction i must say it is extraordinary to evaluate hundred said pages that evidence legal documents and finding based on a twenty two month long inquiry and make definitive legal conclusions in less than forty eight hours the. thinking of the special counsel. was not a mystery to the people at the department of justice there were some inkling as to some of the thinking of the special counsel even for someone who has done this job before i would argue it's more suspicious and impressive this congress voted unanimously to see the report. at the congress and the committees of jurisdiction want to see the report and did the american people
10:47 pm
want to see the report. of the story of a woman who was seven months pregnant when she went to syria to film a documentary about a friend who had become a jihad just an assignment that took a terrible turk. a german journalist was kidnapped by radicals and imprisoned her baby was born in captivity. if in dies and thinks about her kidnapping every single day a year in captivity altered her life beyond recognition she recalls the moment when everything changed. six armed men with kalashnikovs. when the doors of their man opened i was terrified. frightened and. i did my best to remain calm and shout out the thousands of thoughts rushing through my mind.
10:48 pm
in the autumn of twenty fifteen a people smuggler brought across the border from turkey into syria. she went to shoot a documentary about an old school friend who had converted to islam and then joined a group of islam ists. janine that was seven months pregnant at the time but her friend promised her that she'd be safe. i trusted her but the circumstances were so different from the last time we had seen each other in germany. that there were two different worlds that didn't have any connection. janina filmed with her friend for eight days on her way back to turkey she was kidnapped by jihadists from the same group they provided for basic needs but she lived in constant fear. and feels like it best well prepared to cut off my head in front of the camera at any time that much was clear. the birth
10:49 pm
of janina son was perhaps the most difficult time for. one day her captors entered her room accompanied by a veiled woman. it was a gynecologist who ran a nearby practice. they had threatened to kill her husband if anything happened to me on my child she burst into tears one day and told me there were blackmailing her. that's why she was willing to do anything to make sure the birth went smoothly. a few months after the birth janina was freed unexpectedly she believes another islamist group was behind her release today she accepts that her decision to go to syria was a terrible mistake. and guns but it was a dangerous mix of my own a feeling of being safe and the very dangerous situation that i misjudged.
10:50 pm
janina only wanted to tell the story of a friend before her child was born now she's glad she was able to get out of syria alive together with her baby boy. and the talk more about this unbelievable story about the journalist right here with me at the big table send in herself and it's good to have you on the show so i want to make sure we got this right so this all started and you left to go to try to film this documentary you were seven months pregnant at the time right so people are going to hear that and they want to know what in the world were you thinking yeah it was discussed and. security i felt because i had to security guarantee from my friend who went into a jihadi and i was totally yeah stupid at that time and i mean you have the security guarantee from your friend like my friend who. she gave me
10:51 pm
a security guarantee to visit her for interview in syria and you believed her i believed her and in the end also it took a very long time but in the end also i was freed from. and this they were talking about this security guarantee from my friends and in the end it was an important security guarantee and we also need to know this did you did you ever think to yourself when you said yes i accept this security guarantee did you ever think i'm risking my life and the life of my unborn child if i'm sure and you still did it yeah but i was in this moment i was also in the production like the whole film production was important for me and i have had to kind of pressure and i thought it is possible to go in for three days and go out three days maximum seven days and i
10:52 pm
thought it's possible because i have this old friend now when you look back i mean it's not a bad sounds like you were naive or. use your words steve yeah yeah it was stupid in this moment and naive. but now i'm sitting here and i would never ever do that to gavin and no it was the wrong decision when you are you're sitting here there's your book in german. krieger's which if you translated means my room in house of war which was published a week ago in german. why are you sharing your story now because for me it was important that i had now with the book the possibility to talk to my about my perspective of the whole thing and there were also some newspaper articles and some discussions about my story but never from my past perspective and i think it's very
10:53 pm
important also because it was at the end my decision and i think it's also important to know my side and also to know more about what happened to me during this time what happened i mean i'm trying to imagine when you were imprisoned that is that's when you gave birth to your baby right right. where you when did it hit you that you were in captivity that jihad is for all around you and that you were about to give birth to a child and maybe you would need you know an emergency room or a hospital i mean with the that hits you at some point yeah it was like i tried not to focus on this i was small focusing on the hope that i will leave syria before. i was needing to give birth to my son but i did walk one point i was not able to believe it will happen so i
10:54 pm
was focusing on a reality and then it was really hard moment. how old is your son no three ok so he's still very very young when he's older and he comes up to you and says mom why did you do what you did. before i was bored what are you going to tell them yeah i will tell him the whole story and it will be a long story and i think for him also it's important to know everything. at the end i was very lucky because i was also lucky in this situation of captivity because i had for example from a few weeks i had the television i was able to watch to watch venda in syria so this is also one of the. yeah yeah this was a thing which reminded me of my home and it was very important for me do
10:55 pm
you regret what you did. what would you do differently like i would never ever go into syria again and i think it's a bad decision to do this it's a father journalist because the reality is one hundred percent of the journalists get kidnapped there is that it is two thousand and fifteen since two thousand and fourteen is that before we run out of time is that the lesson to be learned for other journalists who are risk really to take a risk like this that they should think twice yeah for sure but it was not just a story for me because it was my old school friend and i knew her since we was six years old so it for me it was a different situation all right. a german journalist we appreciate you sharing your story with us tonight thanks for coming in thank you for the day is almost over but the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter news or you can follow me at brant go off t.v. you'll see it on your screen in just a second i'm sure don't forget to use the hash tag the day there you go and
