7:08 pm
you still have elderly people you're right so it's not. it's not they're not living up to there were. some 70000 people here need water food and medicine or gently they used to refer to as a slice of heaven. the people who call it home fear it's finished they. all take it they get along. none of them all of them are going to make. you know if you think it's about 100 i mean a 100 percent that one thing and all over. the neighboring grand bahama it is every bit as bleak the road to shelter here is littered with tales of hope. and of heartbreak.
7:09 pm
i have been to see them for. 2 days but you know who are in my house. right now i'm heading to the city of refuge so it wasn't a bomb. everywhere reminders of those who couldn't escape recovery workers measure the cost in bodies a moment's rest interrupted by the discovery of yet another victim little wonder that officials here are preparing for mass casualties. a senior opposition figure in turkey has been sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison for insulting state institutions and the president and spreading terrorist propaganda well the charges against jenin cuffed and stems mainly from twitter posts critical of president wretch of type at a one custom short who has called the trial political show remain free pending appeals. and on our correspondent you told me why i john uncuffed unsure who
7:10 pm
is so important. well she is a very prominent political figure here in istanbul the city of 16000000 people active for many years she is the local chairperson of the c.h.p. here in istanbul that's turkey's largest opposition party and is she is also known as someone who has been trying to reach out to the country's kurdish minority and this is the reason why many see her as a key figure in the election success of the opposition here in istanbul in june let's remember for the 1st time in 25 years an opposition politician won the mayor's ship off istanbul in a controversial rerun of the election here in june his name is a crumb a mama lou this was a serious setback for president add on and his ruling a.k.p. and john uncuffed angelo has been working very closely together with mr iemma lou so now the accusations as you mentioned all based on her social media post suppose
7:11 pm
she wrote between 20122017 she herself has denied the accusations and basically says you know she's a human rights defender and everything she wrote and posted falls within the scope of freedom of expression and this is why she's basically calling this trial a political trial saying this is revenge for the opposition's election victory fear in is stumble across want to honk some sports news now in germany the netherlands face off in a matter of hours and what is the stand out much of this round of the euro 2020 qualifiers germany have already beaten the dutch in this campaign taking 3 vital points in amsterdam the return match night in hamburg is a sellout and little wonder as germany the netherlands share won international football's 5th sister rivalries. well the stadium is in hamburg and that is where we find all the routing from the w. sports as we count down to kickoff good to see you ali now these 2 sides have
7:12 pm
a colorful history as opponents but what makes this game tonight so special. absolutely it's always special much when germany takes on the netherlands and there's a lot at stake in this particular game what with it being a euro 2020 qualifier now if we look at the group that they find they find themselves in group c. the motivations for it seems clear germany have a 100 percent record so far and a win against the netherlands in this game would put them 9 points clear of the team in 3rd place and that's important because the top 2 teams go through to the tournament the netherlands on the other hand have had a bit of a false start so far in this qualifying group and if they lose this much they could actually find themselves 9 points behind not only germany but also northern ireland and they're. needing a big turnaround shall we say in the 2nd half of qualification so there's plenty to get the juices going get this match or the european qualification on the line is
7:13 pm
surely enough motivation one would think for both sides but you did mention briefly this rivalry is it fair to say that these 2 nations haven't always seen eye to eye on the pitch. certainly this this rivalry is the big deal for for both of these teams and in fact one of the most controversial incidents in this rivalry in history took place right here in hamburg out the folds part. back in 1988 at the european championship the netherlands beat germany $21.00 in the semifinal on their way to winning the tournament netherlands coach ronald koeman scored in that game and then after the match swapped jersey shirts with german player all off torn and proceeded to make a gesture with the germany shirt. using it as toilet paper shall we say now i'm not expecting that to happen with you he lives turtleneck tonight but it's certainly a game that still gets the blood. pumping even if the rivalry has cooled a bit in the last 30 years i think the fans will be well up for this one and those
7:14 pm
not so charming tactics aside if we take a look at tonight's game through the lens of the home side what way will we be looking out for from the germans briefly. well i'll certainly be taking a look at the defense i mean when you think back say the world cup in 2014 when germany won the world cup you know you had defenders like. formals and philip all at the peak of their powers that was an incredible defense and nowadays with those guys all gone with both saying and forcibly retired from the national team by. the new guys i've got to kind of step up and there's a big shoes to fill so the likes of nicklaus jonathan because they've got a lot to prove in this game in particular and i think as well it will be interesting to see how much we see of chi hard as a young player a creative player who can unlock defenses he'll face a tough test in another man's defense that includes virgil van dyke and mathias so those are the 2 spots that are we following closely but it should be a real crux of the game all right enjoy only rudy in hamburg thanks
7:15 pm
