8:16 am
people leaving libya shores. why is it they expect more people to come especially because as you said the station in libya is not getting better but in the end what the engine not out here is talk about politics it's about saving lives you will find all kinds of people here are on board among the assessment on the doctors without borders in the conservative people liberals people are interested in politics of this they don't really care the only reason why they are here is to save lives i was 3 times on the small rescue boat yesterday there was a 6 year old boy among the survivors i saw his ses he was afraid then he smiled at me when he got on the rescue boat and you gave me a thumbs up you must really have a heart of stone to not tell these people it gets pretty emotional out here as soon as some of the refugees. on our boat the on the rescue boat they go down on their

8:18 am
during the day of the heinous stuns with its vivid colors and vibrant caribbean charm a picture perfect holiday destination for tourists from all over the world but when the sun goes down things change. as night falls sex workers flood the squares popular with foreigners many of them far too young to be doing this as a d.w.i. undercover reporter finds out after just a couple of minutes on the central plus side and. how old are you 16 how much is it tight 100 i know a place within walking distance it's safe i always go there the city's booming tourism sector has helped many families secure their livelihood but the wish to escape poverty has created a blind spot when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable. for nando who wishes to remain anonymous was 13 when strangers 1st offered him money for sex.
8:19 am
when i saw the money i obviously gave him i didn't anticipate the harm it would do to me. but once you enter this vicious cycle which it undoubtedly is you can't escape on your own you need tools and people who can get you back on the right track. with a look at what will. be. in colombia prostitution is illegal before the age of 18 the fight against sexual exploitation of children is regulated by law but legislation wasn't able to protect for 9. and thousands of others from becoming victims. to shield young people from those who want to take advantage of them a local foundation has launched a campaign yes i am the wall. so you know is a defense strategy for all boys and girls in the tourism sector environments there are protocols and codes of conduct we ask of service providers especially hotels to
8:20 am
implement in coordination with the authorities that's the reaction part of the wall also doesn't put in prevention work and it tends minors whose rights have already been violated and. since its launch hundreds of hotels taxi drivers and street vendors have joined the initiative one of them is victor he runs a beach tend rental and feels like much more than just another brick in the wall. of beaches who knew about this problem. if we see something we make sure to tell people hey listen what you're doing is wrong we need to protect our children and we can't put them in the hands of criminals that dating when i do this from my heart nobody is forcing me this is community water when i want for my community i fight with my heart my hands my feet my teeth that was all i have. are but not everybody is as dedicated as victor our undercover reporter was offered
8:21 am
sex with a minor just metres away from 2 patrolling policeman proving once again that it takes a village to protect a vulnerable child but only one person to let it fall through the cracks. in the austrian capital vienna same sex couple is about to waltz into that country's history books the prestigious opera baldwins back to the 1900 sentry and in the opening ceremony on thursday for the 1st time 2 women will take to the dance floor. and i still feel proud and iris clubs are preparing to take to the floor as 2 of the debutantes at this year's pro ball on thursday they will dance their way into history as the 1st same sex couple to whirl their way through the event's opening ceremony trying to use this up so now to just say about it doesn't matter what you have gotten so what you
8:22 am
were born with you can do it you can dance whatever party you want to and everybody can plan to meet everything. the couple insist this isn't about ideology they just want to dance together. and everybody that isn't down sir on that house down soon get their ass like a ballroom or latin couple or even like a padded do and they will know that there is so many men that consing it all and so many women that can lead very well so yeah it doesn't really matter paul are going to marry a girl's power has welcomed the couple adding that in 2020 a same sex pairing should not be a big issue. i have always firmly believe the tradition is important to us and that within traditions to must be for the development and progress one cannot hold on rigidly one must also be open to move forward with the existing tradition. in order to tradition with new overtones.
8:23 am
well the champions league round of 16 off to a thrilling start spanish side let it go madrid stunning champions liverpool one nil the 1st lie closer home dortmund defeating carson jermaine johnson crane from or forced us is here for more good morning jonathan an important win for for dortmund how do they do it well 2 things i think are for a start they're normally warbly the friend held up in the face of a para says around. name and pay and then they had new stuff. not just living up to the hype is really exceeding it brian it was quite a cagey type fest off but then the game really sprang to life in the final 20 minutes because that was when adding a wall and pokes them into the lead reacted fastest to a rebound that lead to the last 86 minutes because name equalise for the visit is
8:24 am
after a cross from bad pay and then 2 minutes later hall and smashed in an absolute screaming from outside the penalty area to give don't win the victory very well deserved given how they approach the day and obviously this one is far from over yet they've got to get to paris and defend what is going to marry the lead car sentimental recently with the away you go but based on the performance last night they'll be very pleased with how they did it early and hauling was looking like he was having a great time out on the pitch he's the new hero just how good is both i think with frost running out supposed to describe him and he's only 19 years of age. it was a big coup for dortmund's for actually signing the bits of competition from manchester united and eventis and at the same time he felt quite a lot of pressure on this young guy so does a lot of hype as we mentioned but he he showed these no real thing under that pressure. last night when you had all the story lines like thomas tickell returning to dortmund off to his acrimonious departure as coach neymar back from injury it
8:25 am
was holding the stole the headlines and it really showed the complete package 2 very different goals for us on a real typical poaches strikers go and that 2nd one the touch in the finish was just absolutely incredible now we're going to hear from him for a shortly i will say he's a man of very few thankfully we've got a team x. over it so as well he throws in some of that so let's take a listen. you know i'm very happy. because sometimes you know when we can. you know you just make a lot more when he's just you can't you double is really strong. he's told but he's . good speed. enjoying every 2nd and. my life is good. ok we're hoping for a lot more from a little bit he let me just reported it's all there in the days ahead and the game's going up let's talk about liverpool losing to let it go madrid what happened
8:26 am
. in madrid especially when you consider that form because that's a guy i've been struggling lately that anyone one game in 6 little league game or the season but it was at that scary 11 day with the only goal of the game off 4 minutes now it was a typically solid that's come a great defensive performance so it'll be slightly concerned or say they have got former timing deficits remember last season in the semifinals against buffalo now they have attended a st 0 deficit and managed to get through to the final and then win it i think out to their madrid will be a slightly tougher nut to crack because we now have as i said how strong they are in defense but i think we can safely say we've got 2 really intriguing 2nd acts coming up in 3 weeks time ok looking forward to them johnson's ever great to see you thank you. ok we have more news coming up at the top of the hour up next close up about thousands of orphans in the iraqi city of mosul who are living
