5:02 pm
david correspondence but ray get in brussels and dorian johns in istanbul but i'd like to start with you we've been saying migrants moving towards turkey's border with you in quite substantial numbers today how concerned is the. the commission in brussels is certainly on high alert but officially they say the spokesperson said they expect turkey to stick to its commitments there's no official declaration by the turkish government yet that they will leave the e.u. and all refugee deal and let people just go and we heard from the turkish ministry that this is also not the case the only room was that especially in turkey and the euro commission says as long as the new rules we stick to the official line but in any case they you would be prepared if the borders would be opened and i'm
5:03 pm
we have vivid and present specifically said that the deal is over but what's the feeling there from turkey is that a deal all that stuck out. well you're right there hasn't been any official announcement of the ending of this deal although the spokesman of turkey's ruling party the a. chilling said that they were opening the borders but only for 72 hours now on the ground we understand there's been widespread reports of took your forty's have been facilitating the refugees to get to the border he's been providing free buses and buses so the greek carry in boulder and buses 2 crossing points on the they bring sea between turkey and greece all efforts i think to put pressure on europe now this isn't seen as necessary the ending of the deal but this is seen as a warning to europe or is serious in its threat that if it doesn't get the support it wants over syria it is prepared to use the refugee card against europe in many
5:04 pm
ways i think this is seen as a final message a warning that is serious about its for it burn and die and we'll come back to moments of play stay with us but 1st a look at what prompted the turkish decision to open the border with europe the heavy fighting in syria's province. a major escalation and dozens of texas troops dead their wounded taken back to taki for treatment. of result of the airstrikes $33.00 soldiers are martyred. none of our wounded soldiers who are being treated in hospital are in critical condition. this martyrs rest in peace. turkey's response was swift turkish officials released footage showing their retaliatory strikes saying they have fired on all known syrian government targets. hoping for a u.
5:05 pm
and nato support in this are they going to get it. well turkey will. get some money from the un that's for sure if they prolonging the 4 year old refugee deal but with nato are not so sure nato is split down in the middle you have to know when it comes to turkey because turkey's operating on the syrian soil and nato is saying this is illegal on the other hand the nato ambassadors also already declared today that this attack by the syrian army of cause is not ok and they call on syria and russia to hold the aggression and nato secretary general. back did not offer any concrete and you have for turkey so far let's have a listen to a bit more of what you and stoltenberg said today in brussels. nato allies provide support for turkey today we all dement their air defenses we have
5:06 pm
a works plane helping to patrol the skies and we also have port to be sits on the support in all the ways but allies are constantly looking into what more they can do to provide further support for turkey and just a meeting we had today a sick clear demonstration of nato saluted to an expression of support from all the nato allies to our nato ally turkey. while support but nothing concrete there from . 90 darrien turkish president and russian president vladimir putin have spoken on the phone today they say they now want to meet in person as soon as possible how likely is it that they can hide down these tensions. well if anyone can do it it can be the. putin now these 2 men even though they have been backing rival sides in the syrian civil war have built up a very strong relationship by agreeing to work together to bring an end to the
5:07 pm
conflict as there was an understanding that it was in both countries interests now that personal chemistry that is widely believed to exist between the 2 men has facilitated a far greater deepening of relations between the countries much to the alarm of nato but this situation if you need is seen as the greatest test for this new relationship and it's very unclear how it can be resolved given that moscow is unequivocal in its backing of the damascus is offensive into it its effort to retake the whole of this province and encore is equally strong saying it will not let that happen and we have the major flashpoint go on this weekend with turkey's ultimatum saying if the market forces don't with it will launch an offensive to force them to withdraw this is a major flash when it's unclear whether turkey will carry out that threat this weekend before meeting between one and putin but if that meeting does take place it is seen as key to resolving these tensions one way or another and ultimately possibly the way the syrian civil war will end itself daryn johns for us at reagan

in brussels thanks very much for your insights. the world health organization says there is now a very high risk of the corona virus spreading globally speaking at a daily press briefing the head of the w.h.o. warns that the virus could reach most if not all countries in the world the w.h.o. says the increase in cases and countries affected is worrying and that much of the global community doesn't have measures in place to contain the virus. here in germany the country's health minister has confirmed almost 60 cases of the virus that's a significant jump from the 16 at the beginning of the wake at least 57 other countries or territories have reported cases of the virus as well a short while ago authorities confirmed the 1st death of a british citizen a man who had been quarantined aboard a cruise ship anchored off japan south korea has seen a shop rise with more than $500.00 new infections bringing the total lead to more

another place to work but i'm finding that difficult because of the outbreak. and then. my university is forcing me to go home who i've only been here for a week so i mean better than nothing but i'd rather not go back one woman square here in the center of the south korean capital seoul 'd usually functions as a hub of activity including cultural events and rallies but demonstrations in public yeah the rings here have been banned schools museums theaters and sports venues have all suspended operations as the government tries to stem the spread of 19 and that government is now coming under increasing pressure. and the cape scene is also taking a hit megastars b.t.s. have cancelled 4 of their so-called searched you to i break they're the biggest boy band in the world right now i and are seen as an emblem of south korea's cultural
5:11 pm
and economic power. the country exports entertainment worldwide abroad to save koreans and people from other region countries say they're facing discrimination as a result of the virus. i wish people around the world will come to realize that the problem is with the spread of the virus itself. and that it has nothing to do with asians in general. sometimes it's the. hospitals in south korea are stepping up their efforts to contain the virus as the rate continues to affect more and more countries around the world. and back here in germany the health ministry says the world's biggest travel say the international tourism fair oh i see baby to be held here in berlin starting next week shouldn't take place that's according to a report in the german tabloid built a spokesperson for the itay bay says a decision on whether to cancel the fare has not yet been made it would be the 1st

5:13 pm
really struggling with this question of how do you deal with that of outbreak and we'll see more of these. when the worldwide financial impact of the corona virus outbreak is spreading just as much as the virus is and global markets are heading for the worst week since the financial crash in 2008 invest as ditching risky assets on fears that the coronavirus could trigger a worldwide recession germany's dax plummeted by more than 5 percent in morning trading asian markets closed well down on friday with the nick i index ending the week almost 10 percent lower and u.s. markets continued a dramatic tumble on thursday the dow suffered its worst one day drop in history. and it's bring chelsea to lenny back in at the french frankfurt stock exchange so why exactly is the coronavirus heating these financial markets so hot and. well i think for investors this is really a global risk if this does become
5:14 pm
a tent america it could really impact such a wide variety of businesses as they could it is it leads to more shutdowns that businesses that could disrupt supply chains that could lead to consumers not wanting to go out and spend money that could all have a significant financial impact on the global economy a lot of a lot of economists today are talking about a global recession but i think there's also the spread of cases outside of china has really caught a lot of investors off guard and that's why we're seeing such a dramatic market reaction this week because investors had really thought this this virus that its economic impact were going to be contained within china and that's turned out to be very very untrue and they're having to really reassess. their and entire market portfolio at this point. chelsea delaney speaking to us from the frankfurt stock exchange thanks very much. let's turn now to some of the other

abstract collage almost a museum piece of images from world war 2 world war one it focuses on 2 specifically the holocaust of world war 2 and also the american bombing atomic bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki that ended that war and looks at these images of evil and it's it's kind of hard to get through i think it was maybe a little bit too much of the same images over and over again there's one line in the film where it's narrated by a kind of french poetry and there's one line about criticizing the images of war as being a spectacle and i thought to myself that's kind of what we're watching now a kind of a spectacle of destruction you know i think actually even go further i thought it was more genocidal porn i really thought it was kind of upsetting the way this film . made light of actually in my mind the the actual atrocities it was betraying. quite different in tone is the 2nd film which screened today there is no evil by

iranian filmmaker muhammad. and this film is quite interesting not just for a subject matter which is about the death pen. in iran and how the regime executes dissidents but also because how it was made because the director is banned from making films in iran's we had to make this film entirely in secret and he did so by sort of tricking the authorities and making for short films using friends of his to apply for the filming permits and then call them the film together afterwards i think it's a very interesting compelling story and will be interesting to see what the jury thinks of it saturday night's awards says in pretty challenging films today but there's been lots on the show 9 days of films and styles and posses and tough job but someone has to do what you want to be but what's been your personal well highlight for me i would like to say it was the time i got to party with johnny depp but of course that didn't happen. part is we're not the highlight for me i'm
