deserves and not be a beggar or an object of pity. but bits of taxes list of challenges at home is long and by now familiar greece's 18 percent unemployment rate is the euro zone's highest and greece remains under tough budget targets from its creditors even after exiting its bailout programs. outgoing prime minister alexis tsipras swept to power promising to stand up to those creditors but his popularity declined as he caved to their demands and imposed painful reforms for up with the mission made a large and difficult circle is drawing to a close we are now going to evaluate soberly what was right as well as the mistakes we made as always i will not refuse to accept my own responsibility and i love will this a finnish woman a little. sunday's results dealt blows both to the press's left wing series of party and to the extreme right golden dawn it didn't clear the hurdle to reenter

9:05 am
and look the talk is who is the new incoming prime minister trauma says he's talking much more jobs cutting down taxes but how much leverage does he really have to do things differently. while you name it you make big promises and that is exactly the challenge that he faces in his 1st speech last night he mentioned that there will be mistakes will be made and that there will be tough times coming and he really has no other way to than to say that because he said he would honor the terms of the creditors remember greece still has to fulfill conditions for the 3 bailout packages the country has received and also really expectations from the people. not many i talked to said look we know what it's like what promises are not kept and we will not have this the stein good and you know not the left wing city itself party has been decisively beaten in this election the father had gordon
9:06 am
don't has been kicked out of bottom and what does all of this tell us about the political climate in greece at the moment. obviously a number of observers have already said this is a baiter shift which you have seen throughout europe for away from a radical of far left them to european parties towards the mainstream but i think that's that may be an over interpretation of what happened you really it was not only. on the economic scale disappointed people although he left the country back on him economic growth but not enough growth but it was also other internal problems the name route that he settled with neighboring macedonia didn't go down at all well with nationalist year in the country so number of domestic reasons as well why the change of government is taking place not. just in athens thank you very much. let me bring you up to

tearing down to town and it was a story that captured the once attention on june 23rd last year dr boys from a youth soccer team decided to explore a cave in thailand with their coach and the group enter the tom long cave in the northern province of chiang mai but shortly after the entered heavy rains began to 4 floodwaters rose and the boys and their coach were trapped. early efforts to find them feed the center's team grew to hundreds of people including diving experts and risk you assume or. then after 9 days with no news and 4 kilometers from the caves mouth divers found the boys alive but stopping now came the challenging task of bringing them to safety through a flooded cave a daring mission that cost one risk his life the boys and their coach were all risk youth safety. sean has chosen bill mitchell one of the divers who do part in the
9:09 am
rescue he reflects on his experience one year on i like to tell a good story and it's a vertical story when i arrived to the cape and the kids were get to the phone we were going out there not knowing 100 percent what kind of vision of me going into i'd be going in to save some kids or going to recover some bodies and i think myself and many of the other rescuers we were probably expecting to find a means some of them not at all. there was terrifying to think about that maybe you're going to be diving around and then the next thing you're going to bump into is that good and busy it turned into. the situation. was part of getting before the 1st kids out any kind of work pretty good. i was sitting in the 6 chair and bar which is mostly off way into where i would be but the kids were from. our mission
9:10 am
myself and my dive buddies voice to support the divers and the kids as they were coming out. well we could actually see the diverse busy always see the light of the diver way before we can see the diver and i remember that reddy vividly i'm sitting on one of the banks together with my dive buddy and i can see this go into water i'm jumping into the water the water is about chest high at this barn and i'm running towards that ike he's dragging something to the water i know what that is that is one of the kids but at this point i didn't know what condition the kid was so that i still remember coming around and he's coming up and i can see the bubbles iceskating from the kids lost in the equipment which indicates to me that the kitties is breeding. and i both told you to know he's a lawyer and maybe he's injured maybe something else is wrong with him but he said . i was the last person to leave the cave that night at this point
9:11 am
all the kids have already been evacuated to the hospital and was under treatment i still remember coming into the charmed bar which is where the diving and i remember one of the american divers just said to me i've been there all find them all alive and. why i thought they were because i sold it for divers few hours earlier i didn't know and it was fantastic to get than the good news that. the foreign. and i don't feel like the world and i don't think any of us do because we were just doing what we do. every day but we were doing something that we we all love to do you got a thing or a thing then that seem ok it's just you know that. we should go again. 100 percent yes i. mean i think the biggest takeaway that i had formed from this experience is that i learned that absolutely nothing is impossible if you work
9:12 am
together if you have a mission and don't forget also in good planning then you can do everything. to cross over to. new shoes at the science medicine operation was carried out a year ago and he also covered the story for us. on the rescues day to day just said he bases that. ivan that we have just seen in florida is not here. not many of the international rescuers are here this is this event today is for the local people still believe that thousands of local people that actually helped one year ago also to make this unlikely mission into a success the ones that i use. not seen in the media for example the women that cooks tirelessly food for the rescue divers for the media people for everyone who washed the clothes of the divers the people who ran the electricity generators here the
9:13 am
people that brought in the p.v.c. pipes to actually drain water from the cave so today is called humanity day it's an event that is supposed to take place every year from now to thank those that are usually not in the try and focus of the media so maybe the contribution to this rescue operation we can see the celebrations are going going on with song and dance what about the boys the boys who were rescued holiday. well 9 of the 12 boys are actually here today i've seen them they are they seem very fine they have become almost well i would say semi celebrities they have toured the world they have been to a youth soccer tournaments at the youth olympics and no one has are as they have here on a major u.s. talk show i hear that 5 of them have actually moved to a boarding school in
9:14 am
a different city about 200 kilometers from here so maybe the hype in this very tiny village has become too much for them but that is only speculation because we can't really speak to them ourselves they have signed a deal with netflix with the streaming giant netflix they're supposed to bring this unlikely rescue mission to live on the screen again we don't know in which form but since then they're basically monday const big to the media so we don't know but they from what it seems they see they they look fine here florian in northern thailand thank you very much for that. big changes in radical restructuring of germany's biggest lender dutch a bank is cutting 18000 jobs one 5th of its work. force and scrapping is still the stocks business it's also scaling back its investment banking operations the struggling lender will shift billions of euros in risky assets into a new so-called bad bank. after decades of trying to become
9:15 am
a titan of wall street and build a global investment bank bank is looking to the home market the struggling lender has announced a major restructuring plan that will involve building on its traditional strengths . will slash around a 5th of its staff worldwide over 3 years it scaling back its investment banking operations and will shift 74000000000 euros of risky assets into a new bad bank is its name those are also says it will cut some of its fixed income operations an area traditionally regarded as one of its strengths. good leg on the plant we've been planning for quite some time that after achieving stabilisation last year cleaning up the balance sheet having costs under control we now want to take the next step maps to align the bank with its strengths and that is what we are pleased to announce to. bank expected $2800000000.00 euro net loss in the 2nd
9:16 am
quarter as a result of restructuring charges and a loss for the full year it's frank 1st base torture banks the fist overhaul in 3 decades and comes after the collapse of a planned merger with rival comments back in that time the lender tried and failed to keep up with wall street's big guns like j.p. morgan chase and goldman sachs now it's time for deutsche bank to get its house in order at home. did have these financial correspondent analyst or levis is following the story for us from frankfurt and he joins me now we want spin the reaction to do it finance meant. it's been an overwhelmingly positive reaction i wouldn't say it's euphoria but the share went up in early german trading by a good margin and this on top of share gains already after last friday it was announced that the chief of the advancement banking arm of the bank and co that did you see overs going to leave the bank and people already believe that that was
9:17 am
a sign that radicals restructuring was and store and they think it's positive. any any person you talk to here in frankfurt perhaps apart from some of the people at the deutsche bank believe that this is long overdue it's coming very very late and the very low share price reflects the poor performance of the bank and the poor handling of the bank situation in the past years but of course despite the positive reaction there's also room for skepticism whether all the promises that christians are having this making actually will come to fruition considering the difficult position the bank is in but if we can't the bank afford such a radical restructuring. well it can't afford not to try to afford it it's going to cost over $7000000000.00 euros almost 7 in the how off and the bank is relaxed relaxing its capital requirements
9:18 am
a little in order to be able to stand not without asking shareholders for new money but it basically has no choice but to relax its requirements for itself a little and apparently the supervisors are going along with that it has to bring costs down for that it has to release employees it has to get out of certain businesses that are just not generating the profits that it needs instead of creating risks that are dangerous to the bank that can't afford to go another way really and what the job got some 18000 people losing their jobs was fed really necessary. that's that's huge but when you look at the figures comparing deutsche bank to more profitable competitors the figures speak a clear language yes it has to release a lot of people. right who really bites at frankfurt thank you very much for your assessment. e.u. leaders meet with ukraine's president to missile lansky today in kiev to discuss

the conflict in the eastern part of the country more than 10000 people have been killed and millions of routed but one small town is giving real leaders reason to hope in hans got a crossing point between the self-proclaimed hans people's republic and the government controlled ukraine forces of both sides have been drawn from their frontline positions is the 1st such move in yaz and it's seen as a possible step towards building trust our correspondent in economy ask the people the what they think of the lens plans for peace 4 years have passed since this bridge was destroyed in fighting and the people it's a need are still clambering over its makeshift replacement thousands of them every day the separatists say they want the bridge rebuilt as it was wide enough for a tank to pass the ukrainian army counters insisting instead on a narrow replacement. is one of the civilians living with the

consequences of their failure to agree she and her husband not a totally live in separate is controlled territory but her pension and the medicines needed depends on can only be connected from the government health side so once a month they cross the front line each visit is an ordeal. that's number one the most vulnerable a start i was scared all the time on the bridge i knew what would have happened if someone had tripped while carrying me or you i had to take a tranquilizer but video more we should. nina didn't get a chance to elect ukraine's president to vote she would have had to make several additional trips across the front line but she couldn't be happier with the result . be given to a good people are impatient we were waiting for the elections our hopes were so high i cried when i saw the landscape inauguration i just want this all to end as soon as possible and for peace to return mina was a baker until

world cup by defeating the netherlands to nail megan rapinoe. and levesque of the u.s. goes in the 2nd half is the 4th time the u.s. have won the tournament. behind the familiar stripes on the flag of the growing only familiar stars in the lineup the americans lived up to the hype of hippie favoritism to pick of the dutch gold with macon rypien though often the provide the ets the newest and morgan were denied by the brilliance of saudi van veen and. the 29 year olds hands kept aside in it before half time as the teams were level with the bikes it wasn't until the alamo before the hand of d.v.d. overseas to referee would finally break the orange resistance a penalty awarded rypien 0 stepped up and put one hand on the trophy. captain capping a tournament in which he laid on and off the pitch. like minutes later roselyn failed put the finishing touches on the victory with a 2nd go deserved win that makes the usa world champions
9:23 am
a 4th time. meghan pino winning player of the tournament as a team might history. and the sort of on ability joins me now from lille where the fun of a state only had a cool nights to reflect on this the u.s. went in as favorites but tell us how good it would be at this tournament. or quite simply they were the best team at the tournament they are the best team in the world and deserving champions and i think they proved that again in the final they had a different kind of challenge so anything that had previously in the tournament the netherlands held them out for much longer than any other team managed to they us had scored in every game in the opening 12 minutes up until that point and then the netherlands held them out way into the 2nd half but then once megan rapinoe talk away the penalty and roosevelt had doubled the lead you knew where the trophy was
9:24 am
going to be heading and you have to say it is fully deserved but the netherlands deserve a lot of credit they gave a lot to this tournament and their fans as well but ultimately it had to be the u.s.a.'s day let's hear what some of the players had say about their success believe it will just did know all of the people in our group that put in so much work obviously the players we have all our friends and family here it's like it's surreal i don't know that you know right now it's ridiculous we're crazy enough to make this measure 2 we just have no quit in us were so tight and we'll do anything to win i feel like we've been working so hard the past couple years and i think to see it come to fruition is like incredible and like i've been saying we're getting to do what you love with the people you love it makes the successes all the more sweeter. for the really very happy american players there ali but apart from the u.s. interest you in france. well aside from the us it was really
9:25 am
europe's tournament 7 of the 8 quarter finalists were european countries and i think that's a sign of how far the development of women's football has come in europe investment the awareness of the game has really increased in the continent what we've seen elsewhere is that other countries have not been able to keep up with countries like japan for example who made the previous 2 world cup finals they went out much earlier in the competition this time and you know there is use there that the league is not fully professional as it is in many european countries now and that is perhaps one reason why you see them slipping back but overall i think this was the most competitive women's world cup certainly that i can remember and i think that is a very good sign for the future. and tell us more about the future ali how important was this tournament for the promotion and development of women's football i think this tournament has been a huge moment in the development of women's football i think in terms of the
9:26 am
quality that we've seen on the pitch is been very important terms of the awareness and the recognition that the women's game has received i think there's been much more recognition this time around compared to 4 years ago in canada and we saw already some of the statements being made by the american players in particular have really become a rallying call already after the final whistle the final when johnny infancy you know the president a favor was walking out onto the pitch to deliver the medals and the trophies chant went off in the crowd for equal pay and that i think is a sign of how people the fans involved in women's football taking up this cry from the american players in particular and showing that they're not going to be treated as 2nd class anymore compared to the men's game they want what is rightly theirs and they are now demanding it and that is a game changer right funding for need of this false oliver movie in leon thank you very much for that. you're watching the news coming to you live from london i'm
