6:03 pm
1st and foremost with the emergency with the situation of the 2 pilots as i just mentioned with the situation on the ground but we are expecting more information in particular from the german ministry of defense as to what might have been the reasons and what might come next. thank you. now to turkey where the opposition has been celebrating its win an election for the mayor of istanbul it was a big defeat for president. used to be a matter himself of the vote was a rigged the opposition candidate won by a wider margin than in the original vote back in march observers say it's a triumph for democracy and could usher in change across the country. the undisputed victor of istanbul's maryla lection is this man. he extended his majority in sunday's controversial rerun of a ballot he'd already narrowly won in march the new man called it a vote to change the views of heard this is not a victory this is

6:07 pm
a stop now 16 people are on trial including businessman and philanthropist. he has been detained since november 2017 accused of financing the protests and attempting to overthrow the government. the prosecution's evidence is largely based on tweets and wiretapped phone calls you murs foreign observers of there to monitor the trial . yet. these are trying to criminalize this very positive movement and claim that it was preparation for a coup d'etat. starts this is so exert. it's all reminiscent of the story the trial like after half the trial is officially scheduled to last 2 days with the prosecution demanding life imprisonment. now you're going hard says foreign policy spokesman for germany's conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. a senior party of the ruling coalition government political correspondent kate brady asked him how the guese trial is squared with the election result which would
6:08 pm
offer the hope of a more democratic. the 2nd round of the elections in istanbul was not only a decision between a candidate from the government party and a candidate from the opposite it was also a test on how strong a civil society and democratic and liberal rights and how strong is the autocratic government system of therefore i am i'm sure that there will be an impact and influence on that what is ongoing now in turkey there will be a discussion on civil rights and on the independence of justice and rule of law. not only in istanbul about all over the country and a.k.p. petition should be aware of that they should think about how to handle the situation with our being thrown away by history. the other stories making news around the world he was secretary of state mike pompei was held talks with saudi arabia's king and crab prince in jeddah the visit is part of an effort to build an

international coalition against iran washington has been turning up pressure on teheran threatening to strike the country last week in retaliation for the downing of and. american spy drone. at least 40 people were killed and dozens more injured when a tent collapsed during a religious ceremony in western india heavy rain and wind caused it to topple with hundreds of hindu worshipers inside prime minister nuri modi has offered his condolences. police in belgium say they have arrested a man suspected of plotting a terror attack on the u.s. embassy in brussels prosecutors say he was taken into custody on saturday after evidence emerged suggesting an attack on the embassy could be imminent the suspect has reportedly denied the allegations. and the european union's highest court has ruled that poland did break a union or by carrying out a judicial overhaul last year that forced
6:10 pm
a 3rd of its judges into the retirement the european court of justice said the reforms which lower the retirement age from $70.00 to $65.00 breached the principles of judicial independence the measures triggered mass protests across the country last summer and entering a c.j. ruling last october forced the polish government to reverse its position and allowed judges who had retired to return to work today the court delivered its formal verdict. let's get more from the deadly correspondent barbara very little in brussels welcome barbara that this decision seems to be about more than just the retirement age of poland's judges. he had because the full of course legally it's quite straightforward there is supposed to be no in fact interference from outside particularly not political interference was the independence and the tenure of job just and this is what this is all about the president would have had advertorial powers to prolong some judges and let them work till 71 and sent others who didn't
6:11 pm
he didn't like just the home and that is not possible so judges have cannot simply be removed from from their job and they just have to act and judiciary independently however of course this is about more because changing the laws with regard to the independent judiciary is a keystone in establishing a liberal regime in a country we have seen that in hungary we have seen attempts to do that in romania and of course we have now seen that for a while in poland and this is what this whole battle is about so it's much more than these judges not just being sent home and a whole generation of them to be not to judge just any more but it is really about the future of poland and the future of the european union in a sense so how are supporters government likely to react. what if government in
6:12 pm
this case has sort of retreated they have already scrapped this law in the last winter and they are not reacting as violently verbal e as they have done before and saying that this is meddling and into our internal affairs and so on and so forth but of course they are angry about this whole war of attrition that the e.u. is waging against the government governing part in the polish capital because they felt they they have the right to do as they like and they can't do that because european rules prevent them from doing so and so this is really what this is about this political war of attrition it is a larger battle that is being fought here and both sides are sort of always waiting for the other side to do the next step and you alluded to this is your 1st album so this is part of a wider bottle of the e.u. seems to be fighting with its eastern members to get them to respect the rule of law. absolutely and the e.u.
6:13 pm
has in early years really closed their eyes they have head the changes in hungary for instance they've watched viktor orban just doing this that he has really sort of. changed the country too in a liberal democracy as he calls it in his own words and nobody in brussels did wake up to this they didn't do anything and then they saw poland going the say when they said this has to stop we have to stop this this can't go on and and now there is this battle ongoing between the 2 sides and the e.u. is not totally without weapons of course it can drag every case into the european court of justice bot for instance there is a debate about cutting funding to eastern european member states to act against the rule of law and that would be a much more incisive sort of measure and the next you commissioner will have to decide about that and looking back at romania for instance the governing party there had
6:14 pm
a suffered heavy defeat during the european elections because the public rose up against those changes to the judiciary system so this whole war it's not without hope for the european side but it is long and there are no easy winds or professional in brussels thank you. a 1000 people turned out for ukraine's biggest ever plus event on sunday a heavy police presence prevented a repeat of violence against much as the gay pride parade has seen in the past. rainbows as far as the eye can see so far so familiar but this is no ordinary pride parade security is tight and police often seemingly outnumber the participants of pride has come a long way since it began with a few dozen participants back in 2013 and it's attracting new and diverse groups of people who are good and glory to ukraine glory to the heroes they cry
6:15 pm
that is the official group of ukraine's own forces and not something you expected to hear at kiev's pride parade until now that is their yard is cool i'm a soldier and i'm gay i was a volunteer in the dumb ass battalion i thought from 2014 to 2016 were fighting on the front for the freedom of ukraine. and the freedom of every citizen in a free country life should you. his isn't a unique story hundreds of thousands of ukrainians from all of life have volunteered to fight since the conflict began in 2014 making the cranes armed forces more diverse than ever before but most choose to keep quiet about their sexuality until they leave the ranks. yeah huge i've been an active service since russia attacked us. if we don't stand up for ourselves there will be no freedom no equality and not just for people freedom has to be defended shot we will defend our
6:16 pm
children from paedophiles supposed to read this but what do you do with a poster go do something useful go fight. here pride is still more demonstration and party place the chance of posters and not for celebration yet i. it watching the news still to come to us protests and anger on the pitch of the women so world cup cameroon footballers crashed out against england after a series of controversial calls by the video assistant referee. want to get ahead in life to play a musical instrument a study from canada shows that it increases students' scores significantly and a wide range of subjects will find out. the african wildlife economy suffers as we're going to zimbabwe you know focusing on ways in which the continent's landscape and wildlife present opportunities for economic development well country investing in nature tourism is a good ball

6:19 pm
shows when the un constantly gets calls about elephants entering the villages for the park management dealing with the concerns of the local people is a major priority the elephants destroyed their fields and plantations the basis of their livelihoods. thanks to fences that the park officials have set up around the villages the elephants are slowly retreating back into the forest. in 3 of the villages electric fences protect the plantations. these fences are inspected on a regular basis and the locals say they're feeling much safer again. is that with us and we've been going hungry for 2 years people were losing weight there wasn't enough to eat but this year we have enough again we have vegetables we've been able to harvest what we planted to get. the cooperation between the park management and local residents is proving successful for the way in dong the fences in these communities have also come as a relief. it was costing
6:20 pm
a lot of money it takes $46.00 people to chase away 3 elephants and elephants not a dog it's not a sheep that you can push away with elephants you have to be very strict teaching and vigilant visuals the balancing act between protecting the park and helping local sustain their livelihoods calls for careful planning. l.t.e. grew up here like many of the rangers but he's confident that humans and wildlife can co-exist peacefully. through news we do this so that our children can see what we are seeing today but today we only read about dinosaurs and books. like that we can't just drive animals to extinction kill them without a 2nd thought that would be a big problem. tomorrow or we'll be back at work in low pay national park and the rangers and villagers will continue to maintain the fences that can help to ensure their future.
