so-called sherpas they've been doing that now since sunday here in osaka and we're hearing things aren't going to well although the japanese presidency is really trying to put the focus on those topics that are afterwards in the declaration there are so many important topics on the sidelines just take iran for example or the chinese american trade conflict that the japanese presidency indeed is afraid that all the attention will be steered away from from their focus and maybe that in the end there won't even be a declaration on the table at least the last each one of these summits for example when as i reached the end of last year have always been extremely difficult because of that all right well let's talk about president trump of course so all eyes on him during g. 20 summit like the one in osaka right now he's often been at odds with other of leaders who were there is there sense that he will dominate this summit as well.
1:05 pm
well so far he's already tweeted you know a couple of things that are worrisome for some of the countries he had the bottom line of what he's always saying it's always been the same message really is that america is being treated unfairly by its trade partners and the latest victim of one of the tweets here was was india but also germany is also mentioned in these and the g 20 summits where i have been with donald trump indeed he's always managed to overshadow this hard work which is you know not as not as offensive maybe to some as what trump does in history so there's a real danger here that the same thing will happen especially because you have the 2 biggest economies in the world the united states of america and china teetering on the edge of the full blown trade war. all right and i just have a 20 seconds left to max out what are the chances that the chinese and american
1:06 pm
leaders will overcome their differences during the g 20 summit and osaka. they'll have a bilateral meeting on saturday president xi of china and president trump of the united states some have said we've had media reports that trump is ready to have a truce there and back off of additional tariffs that he wanted to slap on chinese goods but you can never be really be sure just take the last summit aboard as i read after that he was very positive so he said china and the u.s. would work out a deal but then really exactly the opposite happened so in this case it's really not the words that count but the work that's done afterwards and the actual agreement that might or maybe not be negotiated max hoffman reporting from osaka thank you. and ahead of the g. 20 summit concerns have again been raised over the health of the german chancellor anglo-american after she was seen shaking at a function with the german president's one call to steinmeyer the 2 leaders were

1:13 pm
yes i mean this is one of the largest child abuse trials that we've seen here in germany is 2 suspects have allegedly abused over 40 children the 3rd one here on trial that allegedly watched them online that has shocked germany but it has also certainly shocked the people here in the courtroom the atmosphere was as cold as eyes especially when the 3 suspects entered the room then what happened was that the the charges were being read against them and then afterwards the 3 of them they are given the opportunity to make statements 2 of them one to make these statements and everyone is now hoping for confessions because if the alleged abuses should confess. then that would mean that possibly the children the witnesses wouldn't need to come to court and be used as witnesses in that case obviously everyone wants to them to avoid seeing their alleged abuses once again but until now we are
1:14 pm
still waiting for these statements to happen i've got 30 seconds left tell us about why this huge amount of police evidence apparently have has disappeared into thin air. well this is still under investigation but a special committee has been set up here in the state of north rhine-westphalia to avoid these fees in the future and find out why the failures has happened and how they can be prevented in the future to save also reporting from malta thank you. for going to turn our attention now to the united states where the 1st 10 democratic presidential hopefuls have clashed in a televised debate well they're from a wider field of contenders with some of the more well known names including joe biden and bernie sanders debating tonight it wednesdays about elizabeth warren cemented her status as a front runner using universal health care and economic reform to score points at

a progressive they may root for different candidates but there is one thing the old . group. who got out of the democratic party here in miami say the year ending for a candidate who can be done. donald trump but many voters in view as have yet to fully tune in so the stakes are high but the 1st debates which have the potential to shake out the democratic presidential field the most diverse field ever many contenders have been struggling to garner attention and raise money now they have a chance to take their message directly to a national crime time audience. and that was what they tried to do in the end is senator elizabeth warren was the only candidate on the 1st night to be pulling in double digits and set the tone for the party's progressive week where i want to start this is i want to return government to the people and that means calling out

1:20 pm
is the latest trend to hit the streets in many big cities around the world i'm talking about electric scooters for hire all they're everywhere right now in many international companies want to slice of that market but for local authorities they can be a headache accidents are on the rise and critics also say they're not economically viable or environmentally sustainable but some commuters say it's the best way to get around. this couple is doubled up on one scooter even though it's illegal in germany you can now find these vehicles for rent on nearly every corner in the heart of berlin and this summer people are scootering through the streets and parks of the german capital where 15 companies are competing for the market critics complain that they clog up traffic and consume too much energy. we wanted to hear the company's response so we zoomed along to german scooter sharing company tier mobility experiences in other cities show that only 20 percent of
1:21 pm
scooter riders have given up their cars for this mode of transport but the sector believes that in the long run electric scooters will ride cars off the road. and this is a sponsor you want to install if you look at the commuter train stations here in berlin in some cases they're one or 2 kilometers apart and maybe your office is right between them or your workplace is 4 or 5 kilometers from the train station then it's very attractive to rent an electric kick scooter at the station to get to your office and the potential users are people who would have otherwise taken their cars or gave them $0.05 a day. but keeping up an adequate network of motorized scooters is a logistical challenge at night transporters have to collect the scooter fleet and redistribute them for the next morning micro mobility analyst alexander young says
1:22 pm
that's why it's no surprise that a 10 minute ride currently costs 2 years 50 as much as a subway ticket. not all saga feud i lot of suppliers say that's even below the running costs because managing a fleet of electric scooters cost so much money tied into the by the net effect look at one of the current generation doesn't have replaceable batteries. so you big. sickly have to pick up every scooter every 2 days ticket to a warehouse to be charged and then bring it back into town and he starts over because that in my view that's not economically viable in the long run. but manufacturers are working on the battery problem and they're convinced that these electric vehicles can help turn the corner in the mobility revolution. now coming to a theater in near you very soon is danny boyle's new film yesterday the film director of borneo has want to claim for his films like the gritty trainspotting and the

1:25 pm
good start oh very pretty and he soon becomes an international star we should talk see we pay then you write songs and then you make a ton. and then we take most of it. jack even gets a little help from a real pop star in fact ed sheeran is more than just a cameo in the film this will act struck out your look at school and i'm wondering if you consider how long do you believe a minute maximum. going to rest on the g.g. is that the truth of matter is that in some ways this film was about it. in so far as it's an ed who hasn't succeeded him for hasn't succeeded at 1st but stardom does come calling for jack even though he hasn't earned it and only he knows he's a phony i mean that shows schoolteacher and actualized. it's great to. have you put that you know as yesterday hits the big screen moviegoers around the
