good. place. to play the bad. job. this is g.w. news live from butler and the united states escalates its trade disputes with china washington imposes new tariffs on billions of dollars worth of chinese goods as the two countries fail to result that difference that beijing says it will retaliate so what will the impact be on the global economy also coming up the first results of south africa's election showed that the ruling a.n.c. is heading for its worst outcome in its twenty five years in government and dakar respondent looks allegations that the vote may not have been free and sad. and they
are working to eradicate polio but it's been course often a campaign of misinformation and violence to report on the deadly attacks on back to the nation teams in pakistan. plus just the float your boat it's one of the more unusual exhibits at this year's venice biennale on shows a monument to europe's migration crisis will take a closer look at that and other works at the exhibition. mackinnon thank you so much for joining us. the standoff between china and the u.s. over trade has taken a turn for the worse at the stroke of midnight washington time the u.s. increased tariffs on two hundred billion dollars of imports from china that's an
increase from ten to twenty five percent the move comes as the two sides fail to reach an agreement at talks in the u.s. because she says all set to continue today to try to break the impasse now u.s. president donald trump outlined some of the sticking points you know with a piggy bank that everybody steals from including china we've been paid jonah five hundred billion dollars a year for many many years china rebuilt their country because of us i don't blame them i blame our past leadership for allowing this to half of what i'm doing now with china should have happened many years ago not just obama long before obama . that china for its part has vowed to strike back speaking ahead of the talks china's lead negotiator vice premier new her said increasing tariffs on chinese goods would not solve anything. short of that is twenty or five come here in good
faith china believes given the current circumstances adding further tariffs is not a good way to solve any problems it's not favorable for china it's not five or both for the us nor is it favorable for the world if you were to. say no breakthrough so far my colleague stephen basely from business is here to break this down for us stephen the trade talks are set to continue later on friday and yet tariffs have gone into effect now what is it that washington is trying to make aging do with these measures basically submit to their will in a sense what they've wanted here has always sort of been a large package from beijing they want them to consume more american goods basically to even the trade deficit between the two countries or to bring it down i should say and they also want promises on things like intellectual property theft which they say chinese commits a regular process a lot of countries say this is way of increasing its own technological prowess and
they also want an action against things like cyber theft and cyber war as well so as you can see in the crease in the trade deficit and taking care of intellectual property guarantees these are very difficult things and where these agreements seem to have broken down or what seems what sort of sparked this backlash from the us is that the china was that china was starting to suggest that some of these would be hard to enforce a deal for stability mechanisms they were sort of backing away from what it sounds like and from the beginning analysts had said enforcing things like intellectual property regulations in china cyber theft all this is going to be very difficult data collection from u.s. firms in china that's going to be difficult to enforce and that seems of sort of prompted this ok so what about the repercussions what do these types mean for us. as humans for the u.s. economy well consumers will likely see price increases in the coming months it won't be immediate they're not going to go into wal-mart tomorrow and see that their favorite items that increase these tariffs are hitting a range of products everything from bicycle parts to the rubber gasket so some of
these are items that consumers will buy directly a lot of them will p. passed on to them by businesses who have already maybe eaten the ten percent tariff that this that was on these products before that twenty five percent more and more of them are going to have to pass along those costs to consumers if they want to stay afloat and so that's what is expected when you see this tariff increase is that they can't say anymore all right we'll take this one on but now it's going to be the consumers are going to have to take this so it will be interesting to see what their responses and what about retaliation from china what can we expect it'll be interesting to see i mean you can't underestimate them they're massive economy and amounts of power but at the same time the u.s. really seems to hold more cards here china's economic indicators are really down and frankly more on the u.s. when it comes to its export economy it needs that main buyer and if the u.s. is going to really start hitting it china is more sensitive frankly to it than the u.s. is to counter measures all right stephen hadley from the business thank you so much
thank you ron. ok let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world former u.s. army intelligence analyst chelsea manning has been released from jail manning spent sixty two days in detention on civil contempt charges after refusing to testify to the federal grand jury investigating wiki leaks she's now been served a fresh subpoena again demanding she testify next seven years i've heard people call the u.s. a seized a north korean cargo ship it said was transporting coal in violation of sanctions against pyongyang the action comes hours off to north korea fired two suspected short range missiles into the sea a second weapons launch in just a week old korean leader kim jong un said it was a regular military exercise. a new york court has sentenced a german woman to four years in prison for posing as an heiress in order to swindle huge sums of money twenty eight year old anna sorokin turns to fruitless to fund

francis is planning to implement in his attempt to combat this problem. it's very important to now have unified and universal standards for the church in the past countries have taken different approaches now it's set procedures have been set time limits have been set it's an important step not the first but also not the last the new church law requires that all dioceses around the world have a system in place for victims to report abuse by two thousand and twenty all types of abuse must be prosecuted victims protected and investigations completed within ninety days well victims' groups support the law many feel it doesn't go far enough for i am glad if one question remains namely how reports of abuse will be passed on to prosecutors the pope's law does not make it obligatory to report to all work with your thorough it is and at least here in germany is for police and for state prosecutors who are responsible for investigating and solving such crimes and he

struggling to make ends meet and she reports now some analysts all saying that business model is not sustainable because it relies on cussing pay. such drivers. off your normal flight there's no shortage of weary travelers eager to jump in here at washington's ronald reagan airport right hailing services have never been more in demand but drivers say they're not seeing the benefits of choice been driver for three years in that time rival service lift his come on the scene meaning greater competition you a customer as it used to be relatively easy to just go online you know turn the up on and go online and know that you would make decent money and now it's having to be more strategic with it in terms of where and when i drive strategy is key for troy he doesn't benefit from employee protections like health
insurance a pension plan paid leave or a guaranteed minimum wage or recently cut his pay these days. sixty cents a mile and about thirteen dollars an hour around hoff and what he used to make now what she's every cent to stay profitable off the car expenses it's definitely affected how much i drive because when they cut rate city and also if gas prices go up i'm very selective about when i drive because it's not really financially worthwhile for me to drive it's also i do other things like getting cheap gas looking for deals. these days troy has more down time than he used to and on wednesday he went on strike in solidarity with other drivers around the world who are also frustrated by wages and working conditions as the company capacity go public i know the labor is said in their initial public offering prospectus did they expect to reduce drivers compensation more if they do that i will stop driving

there's a lot of people wanting rides a lot of dissatisfied drive as a no clear road ahead. to pakistan now where the government has suspended an anti polio drive following renewed attacks on health workers that at least three people involved in vaccination programs have been killed by gunman in the last month the attacks have been blamed on fake videos and rumors about polio vaccination spread via social media almost one hundred people have been killed in assaults on vaccine teams since twenty twelve size it is reports now from islamabad . raja that he left his job as a believer but last month the father of two was gunned down in northwestern pakistan while trying to convince them to fix him that their children his family is still. he was my friend a brother
a father and the guardian of our family we have lost everything people who like this are the biggest terrorists in the world they threaten and murder people like my brother who only want to protect children from this crippling disease. of workers are often targets in pakistan due to theories that vaccines are a ploy to sterilize muslim children and the program is a cover for western spice it was a particularly deadly blunt with one female vaccinators and two policemen moderate in just one. so you'd look if knows the dangers of being a. he nearly died after being shot in karachi while immunizing children in twenty two of despite the wrist slit they've still goes into communities and speaks to religious leaders so they can help counter misinformation about the virus.

was the start of his passionate fight for best living conditions for the city's homeless population. christian posh knows what it means to lead an insecure unstructured life he spent over three years hanging out with this group of homeless people at the plus sun mart in paris he used to have a well paying job as a samir but after his wife left him he developed a drinking problem and when he could no longer pay the rent he ended up on the streets and. this is one of the places i slept in but a few weeks later they installed these typically anti homeless barriers in their place deliberately so no one can bed down here. and the homeless barriers have popped up all over paris some in places where people sleep due to warm air from the metro christian reacts to them by tweeting with results. the city of paris had put in iron rods to prevent
access you can still see the traces. they would have stopped people from being able to sleep there in winter when it's cold. i posted it on twitter and the next day the authorities removed the iron rods. if i was a good. christian began tweeting three years ago after his possessions were soaked by street cleaners in winter he wrote this is how the homeless are treated in paris within a few months he had over thirty thousand followers. out in the morning to say hello to the planet and at night to talk about what was going on on the streets. i take a picture of my sleeping bag and say good night guys and go to bed. and people would answer good night see you tomorrow what i thought that was cool.
people who live on the streets often feel like pariahs but christian polish has given them a voice and his activism has spread beyond paris people now send in pictures of barriers elsewhere in france. this one's in front of an eavesdropper share store in now born in the country south. true that the social media have a certain power that can be negative for big brands. we'll see in the next few days that evil share will certainly get rid of those barriers. this present christian is glad that his tweets can change things for the better. his own situation has also improved his no longer living on the streets but has found accommodation with a christian aid organization. now in a first for european football full english teams that will battle it out in the finals
