of the country. the victory constitutes a rightwards swing in the largest democracy in latin america. staying with elections, this time in germany, deutsche welle has more on the large drop in support for angela merkel‘s coalition in regional elections. the results have cast doubt over the future governance of the country, and merkel‘s political future. and finally, in the financial times, could micro—expression technology predict your intentions? chinese banks have started using it on customers in an effort to flag potential fraud cases. it sounds like a scene from minority report. with me is oliver cornock, editor—in—chief of the oxford business group.
if we start with the israel times, looking at what happened in pittsburgh, it talks about one survivor's story, the horror that those people experienced. absolutely, the majority of the victims of this heinous crime were elderly, as well, which is very telling. let's step back, sally, and one theme again of another mass shooting in america, the gun story that narrative, but also anti—semitism and the rise of hate crime. in 2017 there was a 50% rise in anti—semitic attacks. according to the fbi, over 50% of antireligious hate crime was against the jewish population. antireligious hate crime was against thejewish population. what is fuelling this will raise some serious questions. in the post— holocaust era, thejewish community a lwa ys holocaust era, thejewish community always saw america, as we understood, as a safe haven, this melting pot of cultures, liberal. this will not only be alarming
jewish people but people of other faiths, all faiths and no faith. i think this is very interesting, no surprise that the israel times are running on this, but this will be something that will be fuelling the debate, and some people pointing towards, of course, president trump, who in some ways has incited hate full speech. he is fairly loose in his tweets, for example. i think this is very poignant in the dark day forjews in america. and it has begun with the debate about anti—semitism globally in recent yea rs anti—semitism globally in recent years and why that may be, and the difficulties in the region, as well, and israel in some ways being more polarised, and yet the relationship between benjamin neta nyahu polarised, and yet the relationship between benjamin netanyahu and president trump being pretty strong. very strong. 0f president trump being pretty strong. very strong. of course his daughter is married to jared kushner, ajew.
we have seen a rise in anti—semitism, in germany, it is a worrying trend. and thousands of mourners packing and emotional vigil, it is something we have been following very closely, and as we move on, the debate about gun laws in the united states. 0nce move on, the debate about gun laws in the united states. once again, how many more of these horrific incidents are we going to see before there is any change? we will see the mid—term elections, will we see a change on this? it is very unlikely double trouble change his position on this, but it is a ghastly common denominator throughout his mass killings. right, so let's move on to the front page of the independent, looking at the outpouring of grief in leicester after the helicopter crash killing the thai owner and chairman of leicester city football club. iam chairman of leicester city football club. i am from leicester, chairman of leicester city football club. iam from leicester, my chairman of leicester city football club. i am from leicester, my family is still there, i think my nephew was probably at this game, i haven't
spoken to him since. leicester is mourning as a city, it is notjust about the club, it is notjust the football. i had the good fortune of discussing that victory two years ago with you on this programme.” ago with you on this programmelj was ago with you on this programme.” was wearing blue! a very sad day for leicester, a great tragedy, he had donated millions of pounds two children's hospital and was a popular local figure, children's hospital and was a popular localfigure, one children's hospital and was a popular local figure, one of children's hospital and was a popular localfigure, one of many foreign owners of british teams, big trophy assets in the uk. it is interesting that at home he was not quite so well loved and supported, having made a living out of duty—free, and lived in a very gilded, exclusive area of thai society. and a very secretive life, which is interesting, because in the uk and in leicester itself, he was someone uk and in leicester itself, he was someone who was known to be seen and to engage with the public, with the fans, that was very much his personality. and again, this is
quite a common theme, foreign owners of teams building their character up in the uk, becoming a sort of global name here, the same with newspaper titles. absolutely, so that is very much across many newspapers, as i was saying, in the uk, and a big story in the uk. the rio times. jair bolsonaro wins the presidential race. no surprise at all that he has got thejob, but race. no surprise at all that he has got the job, but this is another country that has opted for change. it is an interesting scenario unfolding in latin america's biggest economy. i think it is, as unfolding in latin america's biggest economy. ithink it is, as you unfolding in latin america's biggest economy. i think it is, as you point out, an interesting one. it adds to this list of ideologues from duterte in the philippines, erdogan in turkey, dare i say it, trump. this seems to me to point to people being disillusioned with the status quo. and in that and america it has often
been —— latin america it has often been —— latin america it has often been left wing or militaryjunta, this is in between. this is a racist, homophobic platform and will send alarm bells the liberals around the world. what is interesting about this is it is ringing alarm bells in the same way duterte did, and the election of trump did, to a degree. but actually, the people of brazil felt although they may not like the individual, they wanted change. that is what he stood for. having had, you know, 13 years of far left politics where they saw roussef impeached, they have seen lula in prison, behind bars. he was going to run, wasn't he? uses the this is disillusionment. there are people in the article saying i didn't know who to vote for, but i had to vote for this person because it was change. so women, like voters, gave voters, all voted for him despite, as you
say, some of what he said in the past, which was very anti— women, and he black, and he gave, and yet they may not like —— and —— anti—gay. they may not like —— and —— anti-gay. and all of these established figures will have to be questioning what they can do to re—engage with their voters. this is the basis of this problem, and people disillusioned also with austerity and economic failure. well, let's look at deutsche welle, and they are talking about chancellor merkel‘s conservatives eking out a win in the hesse. her coalition government is even weaker thanit coalition government is even weaker than it was before, and many are saying she may not have that much longer in power. indeed, however, i think robert lee, and a lot of
commentators are saying this, it could have been a lot worse for her. the other party in the coalition, the social democrats, did far worse. so there will be a question within the actual coalition itself, the two leading parts of the coalition. but again, it is a really challenging time for angela merkel. but she has been there a very long time. she has been there a very long time. she has been there a long time, but she is clinging on to power, as it were. and herjob as one of the most importantjobs and herjob as one of the most important jobs in the and herjob as one of the most importantjobs in the whole of europe, the eurozone in particular, at this time when the uk is leaving. it will be a worry for those negotiating brexit, as well, because those people in the uk who are keen on that will be wanting all eyes on brexit, and the honest truth will be it won't be. the financial times looking at chinese banks scamming customers' faces for signs of fraudulent intent. i have to say when i read that headline i was a little bit worried. i thought what on earth is going on here? there is
an ethical element, it is one of those disruptive technologies, ai challenging us. however, the developer of the company quoted in the story says it has reduced credit loss by 60%. there will be bankers rubbing their hands. so how does it reduced loss? it measures their face, and then says no they can't have a bank account, be a customer of this bank? it is like a lie detector, it detects a fast movement of highs, the hand movement, i think, it seems to me to be a bit like a lie detector. but like lots of these things this is a big headline. perhaps in ten years' time this will be absolutely normal. who knows, watch this space. thank you for your company, so much more to come in the hours ahead. stay with us on come in the hours ahead. stay with us on bbc news. hello. after a week that brought some dramatic changes in our weather, from being very mild in the middle of last week, to very cold this weekend,
it looks like the pattern for the week ahead will also see things swinging from one extreme to the next. pretty quiet and chilly start, milder midweek, and then potentially pretty stormy by friday. here we are first thing on monday. a widespread frost, perhaps minus four, minus five in the west. eastern coastal counties always a little bit milder, thanks to the breeze off the north sea. that will feed a few showers in here again on monday. this front tries to get into the west, but it's not going to have much luck. it will, though, feed some high cloud into northern ireland and western scotland, so the sunshine a little bit hazier here through the second part of the day. a lot of fine weather around. temperatures still, though, somewhat below average. perhaps not feeling quite as cold, though, without the keen northerly wind. 0vernight monday into tuesday, low pressure rolling up from the continent heads into the north sea. this is causing us some uncertainty in our forecast for tuesday, just how closely it will graze the eastern side of the uk. at the moment, it looks like eastern counties will get some rain and experience some quite strong winds. just how far that pushes onto our shores, though, does remain in question.
for many, though, again the prospect of a reasonable day, if somewhat on the cool side. that low, however, will be away to the north tuesday into wednesday, and through wednesday daytime, we're going to start to feed this front in from the atlantic, with a southerly airflow. that is going to make things feel considerably milder to the south of the uk come wednesday afternoon. temperatures back closer to average — not the warmth we had last week, but perhaps up to 13 in london with some sunshine. some heavier rain possible, though, further west. some sunshine for the north—east of scotland, but i think still feeling quite chilly here. then it all turns into a bit of a mixed up mess wednesday into thursday. clearest thinking for us at the moment is that we'll see a weather front to the east of the uk on thursday, bringing some rain through the day that will eventually clear out into the north sea. some showers in the west, but generally, again, not a bad day. we're talking about temperatures getting into the average range of figures by the time we get to thursday. friday promises something mild.
it also promises something pretty unpleasant. mild air coming in from the atlantic as this low rolls across us. this is the remnants of tropical storm 0scar. it looks like a bullseye. tightly packed isobars mean strong to gale—force winds widespread across the uk on friday, the potential for some very heavy rain as well. so in the week ahead, we go from a chilly, quiet, calm start again into a stormy picture. all change in the days ahead. good morning. welcome to breakfast, with chris mason and louise minchin. 0ur headlines today: leicester city say the club's heart is broken, as it confirms its chairman and four other people died in a helicopter crash outside its ground. the last budget before brexit, but will the chancellor ditch austerity and start spending? the chancellor has to find the cash to end austerity and pay for a boost to the nhs. i've been finding out what you think the government should do to pay for it. a passenger plane carrying 188 people has crashed into the sea off the coast of indonesia. a sea rch—and—rescue operation is underway. it's a fantastic five for lewis hamilton,
