6:05 pm
a beautiful and rather unusual backdrop for the meeting of the varian state premier . and anglo-american the relationship between the 2 hasn't always been this cordial because no one runs a full day toward the day started with a picturesque and well orchestrated boat trip to the island off having much more filmable than a more convenient helicopter flight would have been. that was followed by a ride in a horse drawn carriage the perry sembler regent with a crown prince but i'm going to doesn't want to comment on the question on everyone's lips. but he's also concerning the issue of my success i want to observe a certain restraint which means that i won't comment on the question in any way. commenting on more than half of germans think mark was pseudo would be a good candidate his approval ratings shot up during the corona crisis 0 deftly
6:06 pm
turned this into a compliment and says it's all thanks to the chancellor. it took the storage numbers of mexico germany got through this crisis better than other countries is down to the influence and leadership of the chancellor people disconsolately america's trip to bavaria was a display of harmony pictures like these certainly won't hurt the various state premia on the road to a possible candidacy for the chancellorship. it's got all chief political correspondent in the crane who is following the story for us melinda so we have seen the picture as a very applicable and grand visit which is rather unusual for for macko who is known for her. appearances that's true but of course it wasn't the chancellor herself who chose these settings but rather her host however it's unusual for precisely that reason this is the same politician who during the election campaign
6:07 pm
of 2018 made it clear that he would prefer that the chancellor that chancellor merkel not visit him but was very happy to receive a visit from the much more conservative chancellor of austria this was at a time when these 2 parties the chancellors christian democrats and it's a very insistent party the christian social union which is mr surface party when they were scarcely on speaking terms so what has changed well mr asserter has moved toward the middle of the political spectrum and distanced himself from the right wing populism of his predecessor and frankly a winner loves a winner both and medical emerged from the corona crisis looking very strong indeed the ratings that you mentioned they are largely attributable to the fact that both showed a very clear disciplined leadership to try to nip corona in the bud. very interesting so somebody that does this mean it is now medicals had picked. no it doesn't i
6:08 pm
think when she tries to play her cards close to her vest that she absolutely means that she had a hand picked successor that was the woman who is now the defense minister and a great crown current power that did not work out well at all so i think that the chancellor is very much now doing a wait and see but in the uk i mean can we expect that would throw his hat into the ring and how might he do that it's quite likely but i think there's an element of wait and see on the part of as well it may be that he would have preferred to wait until 2025 to throw his hat into the ring he keeps saying that he really loves bavaria and wants to say stay there on the other hand he also says things like it's not my fault if everybody's talking about me i'm not the one who's putting those stories out there almost everybody expects that he will be a candidate but if he sees the ratings the polls turning down word for the
6:09 pm
conservatives it is possible that he will then make his assertions about wanting to stay in bavaria even more enthusiastically right that's been in the crane our chief political correspondent candy that story thank you so much for that and. and now to some of the stories making news around the world the u.s. government has carried out its 1st execution in 17 years was off to the supreme court gave the go ahead. but today the man who was convicted of murdering a family in the 1990 s. the administration sees the return to execution is in the interest of victims but the victims' relatives opposed the move. in san diego hundreds of firefighters have been battling a blaze on the u.s. naval vessel for a 2nd day the fire started in the low hold of the u.s. is on hold richard which was docks at
6:10 pm
a naval base for routine maintenance and the u.k. says it will ban paul weight from having any role in providing the technology for its 5 g. networks visible face follows anger in london at china's crackdown on hong kong and pressure from the us president donald trump in january the u.k. government had agreed to give the company a limited role in the high speed mobile network. the german government is set to decide whether to make it easier for intelligence agencies to install spyware on computers and phones to monitor encrypted communication messaging services such as whatsapp telegram and signal use end to end encryption that makes it harder to monitor now under the proposed new goal of technology companies could be obliged to stand by wait a uses device it in as an apple software update which could access a user's microphone camera and to its.
6:11 pm
spy way a proposal has got technology companies and civil society organizations worried groups say it could be used to monitor on reporters conducting sensitive investigations reporter jill dougherty has been following the story for us hey good to see why digimon intelligence agencies want these policies well many of us of my . moved away from things like e-mail and texts towards messaging services like whatsapp that's right which is the world's biggest it has over 2000000000 users and facebook messenger is the 2nd biggest and both of those use encrypted messaging and that means it's very hard for an external agency to monitor them also for hackers and that's made a very popular with for example protest organizers around the world as well as journalists trying to communicate with their sources however it's frustrating security agencies you want to be able to have a look at what's going on on those messages now for example the german interior ministry says that the same messages can be used by terrorists and extremists and
6:12 pm
criminals currently if they want to try and monitor encrypted messages what they would have to do is get hold of a user's device physically and install malware on it all they would have to trick them into installing some kind of maui by clicking a link however the screen agencies now want these new powers to be able to install these kind of malware packages without the user having to do anything at all all right so how would this would impress us right well this proposal which is being discussed here in germany under the label of the state to trojan spyware now this kind of technique with this would make technology companies responsible for in installing monitoring technology in their sentence now the spy agencies could then use that to send out a packet of malicious code to a user's device and this could be very easily done by hiding it inside an app or a software update it could even use an unsecure website to deliver this code ok the device can then be monitored including its monitor is a microphone it's camera and keypad entries and this would get around the end to
6:13 pm
end encryption because essentially the security agencies would be seeing what the user sees now these kind of tools are already used in other countries have it not here in germany however because there's a high value every place a high value on privacy here in germany and internet service providers are also valued by businesses because they operate. inside that environment of high privacy now this would no longer be the case if these little pos and into service providers could be recruited into monitoring operations right so what's been the reaction to this right so we've heard from civil society groups and businesses who are against this the german into internet association bit calm is against this it's companies don't want to have to act as middlemen for the german security agencies and they say that this would undermine the entire network integrity of internet service providers journalist groups are also worried reporters without borders says the interior ministry has given no explanation as to how state hacking of journalists
6:14 pm
would be prohibited now we asked the interior ministry for response that we haven't had one so far however a politician from the c.d.u. which is supporting this legislation says it's necessary to allow spies to keep up with the latest technology this these proposals are going to go before the german cabinet tomorrow and they'll have to go to the apollo meant but it's likely they may end up in a court challenge before the german constitutional court and that court has previously ruled that germans do have a right to be able to trust the integrity and privacy of their devices ok interesting stuff thank you for that jill gilroy and still. and now the. jihadist accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity has begun at the international criminal court in the hague. the. police in the city of timbuktu in west africa prosecutors allege she was responsible for
6:15 pm

6:16 pm
a very strict sharia law now he is not the 1st suspect to be tried. a former rebel and a former member. has been sentenced to 9 years in prison in 2016 but this trial may take a bit longer for very pragmatic reasons due to the global pandemic through witnesses called trouble from mali to the hague and the entire case may only be short note here in west africa let alone in mali a country which is currently in the midst of its warm oil and violent up people against the government. for weeks demanding the resignation of president the man who's been in office since 23 a teen but so far wasn't able to effectively contain the violence in the country and bring terrorism and interethnic violence to a halt. small good issue the capital of somalia and east africa is a city that's been ravaged by war like so many other places around the world it's
6:17 pm
facing in other enemy the coronavirus but the country is broke and its health service is struggling now private companies are joining forces with the government to try to keep the public safety is interest mokhtari reports now on the telecoms companies ringback service that's helping to raise awareness of 19. of you to believe when done mother of telly movie dishes somalia is listening to a ring back to him from the phone service provider. he did to kids people how to stop the spread of the keno virus. a lot of awareness campaigns have been done by people. we have taken their advice such as hand washing. the disease called fever and we're taking all the advice to stay safe . this city ravis by decades of conflict is now fighting in
6:18 pm
the me but as the country struggles controlled the coronavirus great the private sector seems to have taken the lead in spreading awareness. the company behind the idea is so my least largest mobile for the parade it says the service has proven to be useful in a country where people often lack access to information and this monday nick. i took it to somebody we take every bit of crucial misstep and we decided to pull. take a pot to me really and because the onus of lost somebody people. we've got to know that the some of the school in china's access to t.v. . most often the quote and coverage honest for this enough editors so the most efficient medium to reach out to spread awareness and we have
6:19 pm
it could be the mobile from good to back but he does come with challenges as the recommendations often contradict the somali way of life they behave. so friendly but this you know you know decease come to some difficulties you know bush india comes out somebody comes out about with pride so it's also a modest with a belief. it is. you know it's a problems of our cities they now know what the scraw. many people still have a difficult time of the entering to the advice due to the nature of their walked but. does ocean. here at the business places challenging at the start of time to follow their advice not using gloves keeping people apart allowing 2 to 3 people in a time and regularly washing our hands. small guess jews but ones that
6:20 pm
can go. to school and they. are joining me to talk more about the situation in somalia is the country's deputy minister of health 100 psi he had a mr welcome to day. official figures suggest that under 100 people have so far died in your country from 19 you have one official hospital set up to deal with the virus if the number of cases grows will the health system be able to cope. good evening everyone knows i think we're somalia were 5 years ago and really infrastructure that we have in the health system or in generally the government that's ricky covering from a long period of civil war and the challenges that we face but at the same time as you know our crown of virus is. really not only dealing with somalia today it's. on
6:21 pm
the wall that you know how the health system really do love it and when the fighting is really just like so somalia is a part of the wellness cities and really in the system that we have as most of the people know that it depends on international help and i mean really when it comes to the health sector. those other factors that really will help you somalia for the past 50 years. contributors to financing health systems so it was a big challenge for us when corona virus was came into this well to last year and really but to to what is happening is really we see a separate unity to rebuild the country right health system and in the country's infrastructure when it comes to the health system right mr deputy health minister and you also face another threat and that's al-shabaab is terror group that your government's been battling for for a more than
6:22 pm
a decade now just tell me about trying to keep people safe but also trying to deal with this threat at the same time. absolutely the threat. is still a yes the government is getting stronger we are now taking over regions i mean hopefully these. bridges will be out soon and in our vision and the way we look at it but the scene that's the challenge was there the crowd came while i'm sure i was there absolutely it's already challenging this situation with the situation security sector well. safe to operate and at the same time when you have. like a virus but all these challenges we believe that somalis are really strong people and right and they survive a lot so we hope that's a crime that will become also a bunch of the past i don't hope claim that we are doing whatever we can as a government to do but all this part of ok but i wonder if what what you're doing
6:23 pm
is enough because al-shabaab has set up its own kind of eyes fitness center south of the capital where you are. is that testament to the fact that your government contact care of the sick. i am so hungry that i'll show up by recognizing now that crow virus existed because what we really weren't sure is that they were claiming that this disease is for little muslims so this is this is a good thing that at least they recognize that we can crawl and doesn't you know religion has a low language and does a low culture so it's just something that i would welcome but i don't think that there is an appropriate hospital to call a hospital but we will welcome everyone who contributed but we think that government. state government member states of the federal government all now are operating most of the areas that is people who are bottle and they're covered
6:24 pm
19 i don't think it's still kind of i think it's exaggerated to do we. just i think it's part of their but as i said it's a good thing that they recognize now that little muslims can currently can get out of the ira so that's a good message. all right mr mom would say it. this is all we have time for. health minister of health a health minister that it is thank you sir. thank you. and here are some of the main developments in the global current crisis india's tech have been going or is going back into lockdown after inspections there are now 900000 cases across the country after 28000 on tuesday officials in the australian state of queensland say people breaking quarantine rules could face 6 months in jail the you take plants to make mosques mandatory in public in those spaces and st francis if he is
