12:02 pm
the murder of more than $5000.00 prisoners of their still tough camp near danske in what is now poland he didn't sister he wasn't responsible for the killings that took place there the trial is elected to be one of the last of those involved in the holocaust. we're joined now by our political correspondent thomas sparrow for more thomas what's the political significance of this verdict there as you mentioned already one of the key elements of this verdict the fact that this is one of probably the last cases of the type that we're going to see in germany bruno di was 17 at the time and that's why this took place that to get a youth court on one of the key elements is again his age now the fact that this is one of the last cases of the type but there are more elements that explain why this is important it has to do with a 2011 a verdict in
12:03 pm
a separate case that was seen as a precedent back then the old german prosecutors were actually focused on trying to find concrete evidence attached to specific crimes and that through 1011 verdict showed that you could also convict people as accessory to murder and nazi crimes basically as being part of the nazi machine and this is what happened right now in this case as well there's lots more to talk about thomas but 1st let's have a quick look at who bruno de is and the crimes he has been convicted of. these conviction is for crimes that took place here at the form of concentration camp near good density in want is now poland it's estimated that around 65000 people were murdered here in a gas chamber or by shooting through disease and exhaustion. records show bruno de was a good steward home from august 944 to april 945 he's turned to keep

watch to prevent inmates attempting to flee. because he was just 17 years old when he started work at the trial has been held in a youth court bruno de said he was not guilty that he was too young and insignificant to disobey orders and that he was not aware of the killings. but the judge's disagreed they found that he did have a role in the deaths of more than 5000 people justice in this case has come very late and many will wonder why so few similar cases of going to trial during the 7 and a half decades since the end of the 2nd world war thomas pharaoh's time with us thomas why are these trials still happening so many years later and why haven't you seen more of them. that germany took too long to react too long to come to terms with that past and it has been indeed
12:05 pm
a very difficult process here in germany how the country grips with the with its past that reckoning with the past has been a difficult sometimes very painful process and one of the reasons has to do with the what i mentioned already that 2011 verdict with change the way that german prosecutors dealt with these kinds of issues since then there have been a few more cases german media reporting for example that there i think there are around 30 cases similar cases now under way but this just shows how difficult the process has been in germany in the last few decades but also how important it is also for the future this is not only about trying to understand the past it's also about trying to send a message because it's becoming more important than ever also given current developments here in germany to try understand what happened in the past and how it can be prevented in the future as well thomas prado thank you very much for that. the european union's 27 member states on monday agreed a historic 750000000000 euro coronavirus recovery fund after 4 days of heated
12:06 pm
negotiations today european parliamentarians will begin scrutinizing the deal in detail they are due to vote on it in a couple of months but i've already identified several areas there unhappy with the rescue package is the 1st joint borrowing fund ever agreed by the e.u. and consists of 390000000000 euros in grants and 360000000000 in loans. and european commission president also love underly and appeals to the parliament to approve the deal hon members the big winner of this summit are the new own resources we have now and a unanimous agreement on the need for a new on resources we have a clear timetable and we have them linked to repayment and this is
12:07 pm
a huge and historic step forward for hours union which both the commission and the parliament have long being pushing for. first the deal of that from the line is promoting was agreed upon after a marathon summit of hardening goals here from an even fighting among european leaders. the masks had this miles and the smiles polite the days of grueling negotiations that came before in the end each new leaders had thrashed out a plan to spend a huge $750000000000.00 euros and this is how. of the coronavirus recovery fund 390000000000 will be in the form of grants with 360000000000 made up of loans government will be able to intervene if they think money is being misused member states have agreed to connect the disbursement of the funds to observing the rule of law a 1st in the blocks history despite a weekend of tens bargaining and talk of hate it's being billed as
12:08 pm
a win for all she said conti prime minister of italy the biggest recipient said he was leaving with a historic deal his dutch come to power us less of a risk for anything we have achieved is a virtue but also satisfied in the end it is germany and france architects of the plan who have most to be pleased about it after all at stake is not just millions of jobs but the very idea of european solidarity. our correspondent mark zandi now from brussels with more max european parliamentarians aren't entirely happy with the dean what are the main criticisms. that's right be rich but it's also important to point out that a majority of parliamentarians are happy that a consensus could be reached and they're well aware of the urgency of the situation and it's also their job to point out as a job as a european problem and to point out shortcomings and we heard this in the debate
12:09 pm
this morning i mean for example. the head of the largest group in the european parliament. criticised cuts to budget we also heard that from heard that from many other problem in terence this morning i'm he pointed out there's less money going into health programs less money going into migration he pointed out that funds of. proposed for border guards were missing and then also another huge issue debated this morning in the parliament was the lack of funds for climate initiatives which used to be or still is a cornerstone of from the line that commission presidency and the funds for that program were also severely scaled down the voting in the parliament marks isn't happening until autumn at least what happens if voluntarily and vote against this do you. that would be very unfortunate. the 1st and foremost the fund that is intended to help countries hit hardest by the
12:10 pm
covert $1000.00 condemning for their economies to down spec would be in danger but also it's closely connected to that is the m.f.f. the multi annual financial framework the 7 year e.u. budget so the e.u. wouldn't have a budget for the next 7 years and would have to work with an emergency budget which is based on the spending for 2020 but this is quite unlikely to happen because the parliament although they don't disagree with the entirety of the deal they wanted they want to still they don't want to be the ones who are responsible for for throwing it out but they also want changes so what they can do now is actually group together find common ground find a strong negotiating position and then take it back to the other even situations and try to allocate funds for the programs that they deem most necessary change the deal. the legal. finesse so to say and then come back and vote on it
12:11 pm

12:14 pm
into and putting them in unmarked vehicles. i cannot believe i have to say that to the president of the united states i know that oregonians are outraged americans should be appalled but the controversy hasn't stopped president trump announcing that more federal agents will be sent to other u.s. cities today i'm announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into american communities plagued by violent crime will work every single day to restore public safety protect our nation's children and bring violent perpetrators to justice federal officers will be sent to albuquerque in chicago both democrat run cities critics say the deployment is political an attempt to make democrats look weak on crime and so burnish trumps image the law and order precedent ahead of the november election.
12:15 pm
the mayor of chicago says she welcomes a partnership with federal agents but she warns again she's in the same tactics as important i've been very clear. not happening in chicago we don't need federal troops we don't need unnamed secret federal agents roaming around the streets of chicago that's not democracy that we saw unfolding in the streets of portland as a result of this federal action that's what we call tyranny and dictatorship and we're not having it in chicago. residents of chicago say extra police won't solve the issues facing the city they say action on gun control would be more effective in tackling violent crime and from portland oregon i'm joined now by activist and journalist laura just dede. you've been a part of the protests your so can you tell us what you've experienced in the past few nights i'm going to do it just before i did class
12:16 pm
and a real shift. for that. is that enough. go on our own organizations i think you have a wife terri. or watch or tear gas. and raise that i don't. turn a lot of my friends have been injured and getting really scary speaking of how scared it is brown the governor of oregon said on the court we cannot have secret police abducting people on court is that really what's going on there. it seems to be i have been lucky enough not to experience that myself or witnessed it but i have friends on predator who fired on anything that scratched off. she says she was taken to local dentist was the courthouse they had something to interrogate her on and then
12:17 pm
a few hours later they released turned out any paperwork and instead of course a problem is it's all very extra legal terms that gary will continue to release people people are not wanting to box i especially after protests alone very scary it's disturbing what you see the vote is basically having the impact and. it was supposed to have been there for protests are going to subside oh no i don't think so portland is very angry a couple of weeks ago we had a couple 100 people on the streets yet over 2000 is the point that the last few nights now i think we know this is that you have to stand against this kind of thing this is the kind of thing that threats from ocracy none of us are going to stop fighting until it stops but when real change come at the ballot box and do you think that these moves from the central government will go down well among us
12:18 pm
voters. i mean that is that is the real question is better talk just for extremists some kind of car park here at the grave threat in portland pretty good health care and that's not because he had bought it out there are very regular horrible and to be getting by the parents in their criminals and i think as long as that happens and as long as the press covering it. that this isn't an issue there are still called violent ever but instead people expressing their. vile perhaps benign i hope very much that backfires on top of her it's really. important thank you so much for speaking to us. to india now where the number of covert infections is continuing to rise the health ministry reported more than 45000 new cases on wednesday while the total death toll so far 30000 knockdowns and other preventative measures are proving hardest for those living at the margins of indian society.

12:20 pm
like other street children did or jobs to support his family after going to a nearby school. before the lock down and used to go for backpacking at the railway station after the. nearby park they also sell toys and corn crops later i started selling water bottles from cold drinks and. now reduced them has to beg for money while there are no here because the bank really reliable that to me indicates that there are millions of children in india who live and work on the bottom line and some of the other form of labor they work at the water fellow boys and many of them begging to support their families. the federal law with banking and the dozens of dollars for the children too much to be playing to politics and the continued cycle labor already at the very margins of society with irregular access to social benefits the current situation has left these children even more
12:21 pm
one little. bit children may face many problems for example they can be pushed into bonded labor situation they can be. victim of profiting but they can also be good and also they can be pushed into the sex trade the same age as just the fire used to the exact thinking to a nearby a t.v. station to help on for her family before the lockdown for young girls of homeless families a rare shortage education also takes a backseat as domestic responsibilities take over. buyer dropped out of school to help out her family after her brother passed away. now she spends most of her time taking care of her younger siblings and helping her mother with her daily chores. though she got into it in an open learning program she does not have regular access to books and stationery sometimes she has to step out and beg for money we can begin to open trade order or do. the home well. there is

a little protection of these families unless there is nutrition and other medical treatment and there's some form of passion behind these children by a large group. despite their hardships all trust them and are hopeful and have plans for their future to get me to want to study further so i can teach other children and help them. for these creatures in the future which no certainty and the current situation in the country has made matters worse for them. joins me now from delhi with more money iraq has there been any help forthcoming from the government for these children but to clearly seeing as their education prospects have been severely affected. well of the beginning you know we need to see these 2 not separately but as a part of the systems which basically exist because of extreme depreciation so
12:23 pm
unless you uplift the entire family and to empower them and children really it's a difficult to imagine any kind of future for the 2 of them so that is why the government on its spot has been taking get us out of things like announcing this 2 packages or distributing food to these family and giving direct cash transfers but specificially for the children there's not a lot which isn't happening if you talk about education anyway on the ground in the way she left done mostly by civil society groups and n.g.o.s but now we just want chopping down it's been a said back and here it is where you see of our digital divide and the sense of privilege because while the private schools across the country are imparting education through online classes and everything has to go online these children don't want to have that option they have what like one decent less than we believe smartphone in the end that family if i was 6 members and even the schools that they go to they're not equipped enough to give this kind of education online and even
12:24 pm
they get embroiled in the you know distance learning program like violence in my report did because of the school would log on to to ation they're not even getting access to their books and stationery and more books on a regular basis so in terms of education so they deployed time for that but a little bit of up has a tug harnessed. in the. being able to cope with this pandemic. well yes in the other means of code worked country in the world but what has happened in the past few weeks is that they have a many cities have increased the deficit a lot so what we are seeing is a lot many having effected over the past one week on a daily basis about 40000 cases are being detected and there are states particularly states in south east where the number of active pieces have doubled or tripled over the past few days so india is still struggling in handling these because of the state have to take their own decisions of how and what do you make
12:25 pm
what kind of load on the restrictions to implement and i'll come to the infrastructure when they don't a particular region and states so in terms of handling this crisis in gaza. when you're actually speaking to us from delhi thank you very much that's. football news now liverpool sealed the premier league title last month but have to wait to lift the trophy on wednesday after beating chelsea $53.00 at home the muted 70 attracted hundreds of fans outside and fill the stadium despite warnings not to congregate in large groups to avoid spreading the coronavirus the crowds are central flares and made lots of noise until the early hours of the morning this is the 1st premier league title in 30 years. and finally a remarkable video shows how 2 children escaped a fire in a tower block dropping from a frightening height and caught by neighbors in the french city of grenoble.
