and he says that these are doctors that he trusts and that the reason why he's now ending his hunger strike is because those doctors told him that if he doesn't stop his hunger strike there may soon be no one left to treat so they essentially said that he could die if he doesn't stop his hunger strike but in that post on instagram need says that he still demands to see another doctor for other symptoms that he has which is for his numbness the numbness that he's been feeling in his arms and legs which his supporters say may be may have been caused by that poisoning last year with a military grade nerve agent let certainly is concerning what more can you tell us about his condition while there was huge concern head of this announcement because the news that we were getting from the prison where now he's being held wasn't great yes this week he was moved by authorities to

a different prison where there's a tuberculosis ward so he was allowed to kind of lie down am and be treated essentially and the prison service here in russia has been saying repeatedly that his health condition is satisfactory but from his post of orders we've been hearing of this severe back pain that he's been suffering from for about the numbness in his arms and legs and also about blood tests that show that he could be facing kidney failure or even heart problems so rather concerning news there how have russians been reacting to this story and what does novelli mean to people there. well i think there's 2 points to mean made there of course there's his supporters and then there are normal russians when it comes to normal russians i think still the majority of russians don't really know who i think say now biden is he's never really reported on on state t.v.

and most likely the fact that he's ended his hunger strike won't be reported on state media either he has been gauging song recognition and including among sort of outside of traditional opposition circles with his poisoning with his return to russia and also with the recent investigation that he published on you tube which got which went viral but you know mostly it's just his real supporters who will be following this news they will be breathing a sigh of relief on wednesday their main demand at a protest that was held across russia was for him to be able to see independent doctors and that demand has now been has been met and even some of his supporters were on hunger strike with him they will likely now be stopping their hunger strikes as well emily thanks very much for that data to correspondent emanation in . india has reported the world's highest

prey to the same waters it's been defending. i'm going to michael has been facing questions today over one of germany's largest corporate scandals the chancellor testified before a parliamentary committee that's investigating the collapse of the payment processing company why a cod will make us want to know why merkel continued to promote the german company abroad despite multiple allegations of wrongdoing her appearance marks the climax of a public inquiry into an affair that has tainted germany's reputation for following the rules it exposed ties between politics and business and prompted several resignations and criminal investigations. more on the story the joint. chief political editor michael is still giving testimony but tell us what she's been telling the investigative committee so this morning. well she basically says and this is the most contentious issue here why she raised why it caught on her visit to china at the very highest level and she said that simply why
3:17 pm
a card fit into germany's overall policy in seeking market access particularly on the financial sector and that that had very little to do with the fact that she had met up with a lobbyist for why a car none other than the former defense minister here in germany. back she also stressed that she is no longer in contact with him so clearly trying to put some distance between her and him and she said that she still had full confidence in one who of her key advisors. not simply color who is her economics advisor and whose wife was also linked to why it caught in directly so that still leaves some question marks the german chancellor very much on the defensive here well before machall rejected criticism of her lobbying company while a deputy elections also refused to take any blame how does that make them look.
3:18 pm
well it makes our so it's the finance minister who was testifying yesterday looked at the very least uninformed although many find that very hard to believe because he was also the one who then started to change the watchdogs to basically restructure it and to have somebody else at the top of the baffin germany's financial watchdog he says he fixed the problem as soon as he was aware of it but there's still some question marks over who knew what when and who should have acted to prevent this from happening with the counter argument being that there was so much criminal energy in why a card suddenly no longer being able to produce evidence for some 1900000000 euros and that that is always something that policymakers cannot foresee that it happens so here we are it's certainly very damaging either way whatever the truth is for the reputation of this government and in the end machall herself well that brings
3:19 pm
me to my next question very damaging machall is in the last months of her chancellery how will this scandal affect her personal legacy what could leave her somewhat tarnished being of course how to the very least by the very successful lobbying efforts by wild cards which was certainly deeply rooted within the upper echelons of bavarian politics at the very least and one could say but at the same time it is only a few more months to go germany is in the midst of a pandemic so yes it will damage her reputation but not grasp on power until those elections in september or we have to leave it there thank you michelle if they have any teeth political editor. turkey is currently hosting more than 4000000 refugees from the middle east numbers surge during self syria's civil war which began 10 years ago but today most vibrant trying to reach europe from turkey and

3:22 pm
straddling turkey's border with iran up to 4000 meters high most of those trying to reach europe from afghanistan pakistan bangladesh take this way. ticky is now building walls everywhere in the region they are hundreds of kilometers long the border with syria has already been closed off the wall to iran is still under construction. human rights lawyer mahmoud cut chances a war won't stop the refugees it only makes the journey more dangerous. he has in this area been ignoring people smuggling for too long it's become kind of a business sector so many get involved in this because a lot of money can be made in a short time at a relatively low risk. i mean and power of a sufi saga still clearly remember their own flight from afghanistan the smugglers took everything from them they say they have been living here in van for 3 years
3:23 pm
now. the family found refuge in turkey but like so many others they want to continue to woods europe back to afghanistan they say that's out of the question. the you will have lost everything in afghanistan it's a war zone our house was destroyed how can we go back there when there's no safety for our children but if we have to go back they will kill my son that's not an option. so they are holding out in eastern turkey stranded in their new existence and they think of those who lost their lives and are buried here at the cemetery of the nameless. tunick system sports news now in europe aims football's governing body says new nick will remain one of the most one of the host cities of the year as following

a meeting today in it had been at risk of losing its hosting rights due to the e.u. a set requirement that spectators be allowed to attend now local authorities and the german football federation have a great of a plan to allow some fans inside the city despite the coronavirus pandemic bilbao and dublin have dropped out as host cities out the failing to provide the same guarantees. and i'm joined by nelson crime data on this story jonathan hi huge decisions of the city of munich but how will they be able to justify letting people into the stadium during what is incredible cases more i think that's probably the story and 2 sides to it it is important for. such a prestigious tournament specially in view of the fact germany will have the entire thing in 3 years' time you're at 2024 there are many ways it would be a dress rehearsal and i think that's why the local authorities and the german
3:25 pm
football federation have been so keen to have this happen they've been working on 3 scenarios after fans inside stadiums ranging from anywhere between 0 and 27000 fans in the end what they've agreed on is $14500.00 which is about 20 percent of the capacity of the arena so that's obviously enough to sway you a fair but the other side of it is you know the current a virus cases in germany are rising we're about to enter a street potentially because of that. the writer had been airing on the side of caution saying how can we plan for something like this when we don't know what's going to happen in june and july when this tournament takes place and of course you know a lot of people will look at all the restrictions in place at the moment and think is this another example of football getting preferential treatment. i how much pressure do you think you would have put on munich to make this happen. oh you wait for were adamant spectators should be allowed inside the stadium to the storm and they wanted 25 percent capacity and guarantees in the host city 9 of the tribe had
3:26 pm
already done that and dublin as we had can provide those guarantees which is why they dropped out as i said munich slightly under that but props talk that because of the german clubs dropped out of the super league when they refused to take pop that germany kind of won some special favors because of that why is it important for you a for well of course there's the prestigious thing as i mentioned this is the 2nd most watched football tournament in the world so of course they want found inside the stadium and then this money ticket refunds are going to be very difficult to organize. the coming in you know through. as a reminder of our top story alexei navalny says he's ending his hunger strike off to $24.00 days the jailed kremlin critic made the announcement in an instagram post the officer told him continuing the strike would endanger his loss. they're watching data over the news bill to comment did over the news asia with protests in
