3:06 pm

3:07 pm
a thomas fellow why has the german government decided to withdraw some of its troops from iraq. we have access to a letter sent by the german ministries of defense and foreign affairs to the german parliament explaining the decision on the key element there is security concerns that german officials have in particular when it comes to those soldiers that are stationed in iraq it's important to stress amrita that this is on a temporary basis it's not on a permanent basis and that we're only talking of a small part of germany's troops in iraq that they're going to be moving to 2 neighboring countries in the region to jordan and kuwait but again important to stress on rita that it is something temporary germany is particularly concerned about the security on the one hand as i just explained on the other hand there are also concerns about the political situation and how that will evolve in the next few days and weeks in particular when it comes to the un t.i.'s coalition german officials have been discussing this
3:08 pm
a lot here in berlin and in fact german foreign minister. had a lot to say on this this is part of what he had to say on this regard. the fact is the troops who are involved in a training mission for example are no longer carrying it on comes to a court the coalition's entire anti i ask combat mission is also currently on hold . so the safety of our soldiers who are there is our highest priority that's. our we're checking them out on a daily basis and have so far taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our soldiers on the ground. so the security as we heard from the foreign minister of germany off the soldiers is most important and as you said almost the german contingent in iraq is small and the draw is temporary but what message does this mean george said at a time of such high tension in the region. it is important to understand the bigger picture here i'm retired if you read carefully that letter by german officials it
3:09 pm
is clear that they have 2 priorities in mind one is the stability of iraq something of german officials particularly worried about and secondly on t.i.s. coalition which as you know is a direct threat as well the i.a.s. to the e.u. and i'm to germany something that german officials are particularly concerned about as well as how they can still continue to combine the islamic states in the region if the situation continues to change in iraq so these 2 elements remain particularly important for germany and for the e.u. as a whole and that's why german officials will also be having various discussions not only with iraqi officials in fact germany sending a high ranking delegation to baghdad for consultations but they're also having discussions with other european leaders as well and let's not forget that i'm going to call herself will be traveling to russia at the weekend to have discussions with that emir put in there also on this issue so a lot of talk a lot of discussions on this the issue that for germany is becoming very important indeed to must guarantee the obvious political correspondent thank you very much
3:10 pm

3:11 pm
has been cleared of charges that he failed to properly register his vessel gallus beta help save more than 230 refugees from the mediterranean in june of 2018 he faced 811-0000 euro fine in more tell the claims that the ship was incorrectly registered but now a court there has ruined he doesn't have to pay. in june 2018 more than $230.00 refugees drifted on a rubber boat off the coast of libya before the lifeline found them the captain wanted to save lives but felt that everywhere he looked obstacles were in his path its refused to allow a ship to dock for days. the way people are treated around here makes me want to cry people talk about trump in mexico and his wall but i have the impression that europe is no better. only off to several other e.u. states announced that they would take in some of the migrants didn't open.
3:12 pm
the refugees were finally safe but the lifeline was confiscated and a new order c. began for captain harsh. he was charged with not properly registering the lifeline which sailed under a dutch flag an accusation that highish that was absurd. after a court imposed 810000 euro fine in may 2019. he has finally been vindicated the court and acquitting the captain. battle isn't another ship captain by him was seized by italian authorities last september after he had rescued 100 people from the sea separate proceedings. you're watching the devaney is coming up ahead. schools in every 52 minutes and
3:13 pm
now no region sensation. why he feels he's such a good match for the children. but 1st it's 5 years to the days since islamist terrorists went on a rampage against journalists at the french satirical magazine show. family members and colleagues of the 12 who were killed marked the occasion with a series of ceremonies in paris they included some staff members of the publication who were injured by the gum and the so-called islamic state claimed responsibility for the attack which was the 1st of a series of deadly incidents that shook trance to its core committed mostly by french born extremists. january 7th 2015 in paris in front of those headquarters terrorists targeted a newspaper which hot published kyra catches of the prophet mohammed it took less
3:14 pm

3:15 pm
those for sure i think this day will go down in history and that the attack was a major blow to freedom of the press and friends but beyond doubt the slaughter of those journalists reveals that a country was ill prepared to answer terrorist threats. for the next 2 years france would leave in a state of emergency thousands more military personnel and police officers part of the so-called a better sense than to know what deployed and granted special powers to tackle terrorism. but more attacks followed including a november 2015 massacre where 130 people died. the following here in nice dozens were killed when a truck drove into a crowd on bastille day. those attacks were claimed by factions of the islamic state. 5 years france is still on alert for new terror attacks while the survivors of the challis have to shooting continue to share their
3:16 pm
accounts after a massacre. and that report by the daily correspondent emmanuel as she joins me now in the studio with the uses of french what are your memories of that event 5 years ago today. the 1st memory that constantine is absolute shock upon finding out about the attack i found out about it on watching television. that quiet streets you know those fires that we hear the very beginning of the report that has been a real shock and also as a french person i grew up with drawings of. those are some of the agenda may still have been killed in the attacks obviously that came as a total shock and also disbelief i would say because here cumin life has been taken because of the ideas that were conveyed by journalists and the sheer brutality of
3:17 pm
the attack it lasted less than 2 minutes to jihadists killed those 12 people in less than 2 minutes so really the shock of that day remains opposed to today and there was shock across the nation and across europe on the day has to be their legacy to that event 5 years ago has anything been learned from what happened that day well what has been learned out there unfortunately is that france was indeed very ill prepared to answer terrorists as terror is that came from within because most jihadists were born in france actually now we found out that most people who committed such attacks were already under civilians but weren't arrested for lack of means by the french government so really the preparation of the government is what came to of course since then the government deployed to something that operation which we try to talk about in the report it includes more than 10000 soldiers being deployed 5000 more police officers being deployed on side but sadly as you've as we've seen over the past year in france it doesn't prevent
