tremble and smile. magical images and emotions that none of us. know that go see every weekend on d. w. . this is deja news coming to you live from a deadly quake on the border between iran and iraq at least three hundred people are dead in iran alone with over thousand more injured relief efforts underway after the powerful train much hit near the iraqi town of job what's
a coming up. the. year. serenaded by a strong man but the test is in montana had a different greeting for donald trump as he met the philippines leader nor did he go to ted. and france mocks to yes since the attack on the bottom along the city's nightlife. the need to survive off that shooting that killed ninety people inside the paris concept venue. i don't welcome i'm a. risk is a scrambling to help victims of the iran iraq border that's after
a seven point three magnitude quake struck around thirty kilometers from the iraqi town of late on sunday now iran and officials say the tram has killed some three hundred people in iran. in iraq the interior ministry says at least seven people have been killed hundreds more have been injured. came out of nowhere and sent people fleeing into the night in a matter of minutes their lives reduced to rubble the quake could be felt across iraq from here in the eastern city of karbala to khan and over four hundred kilometers away. but it was iran that was the worst hit this was the scene and western kermanshah province buildings crumbled like house of cards destruction as far as the eye can see. as the clock ticked on the number of killed and injured take
a wall fell over me. with hospital struggling to cope with the flood of patients the iranian government has called on people to donate blood. in north in iraq the quake was literally broadcast on live t.v. . looks like there's an earthquake happening where you are. yes there's an earthquake i'm going to go outside i'm sorry. the interview short by the tremors as people try to get to safety. the night tracked on makeshift camps mushrooms across the affected areas as many were forced to sleep in the streets. many no longer have a home and even those who do likely won't be able to return anytime soon. and for more on that ok i'm joined by professor mark allen he's from the earth sciences department adult university in the u.k.
welcome professor what is your assessment of the scale and dimension of this earthquake. well from what we know so far the earthquake was usually large in this part of the world earthquakes are common in iraq and around sadly this will release estimated magnitude of maybe seven point three is much larger than we've recorded over the last few decades so what kind of an earthquake was this professor alan because you have earthquakes which i shall know which aponte a much more dangerous. this woman seems to for focused on about twenty three twenty four kilometers per hour of the earth's surface so it's relatively deep for this part of the world you're quite right if it has been a shallow repents it might be even more destructive and it is possible whole patent earthquakes through the darkness mountains where two tectonic plates pushing
against each other in the arabian places are trying to go sliding underneath the eurasian continent so you have many earthquakes in this part of the world every year to six friendly ones is largely destructive was the events that recently appeared and is it possible to determine why this earthquake came at this particular time. no it's not we can make a general forecast that earthquakes are going to occur in this part of the world but we're not yet able to give a useful protection the certain individual earthquake is going to strike in particular time and place so i'm sorry that the space of the science of moments it is such that we can't give useful protections as to where individual earthquakes it comes right at the professor and what about possible aftershocks is it likely that there will be more aftershocks now after this large trim up yes unfortunately
unfortunately it's highly marked that's already sons of eight ten significant aftershocks that occurred in the region these are some far much smaller than a regional event american ships are all new yorkers for the fire which means that they might be expected syria course our storage and so these are far superior than your original burns but we can't rule out that they may not be have to shocks which i'm sounds quite sizable with the additional advanced scales american troops unfortunately my p.c. after shocks martin she's six which themselves could be terribly extremely damaging around the city in an area where the infrastructure has already been hard hit by landslides building collapses i will say is unfolding the next days and weeks right professor mark allen from the department of earth sciences at durham university thank you very much for that assessment. thank you this article look at
some other stories making news around the wild man was army has replaces general in charge of the trouble of the kind state no reason was given for major general long long since transfer operations may have driven a more than six hundred thousand rohingya muslims mostly from rakhine state to flee across the border into bangladesh. saudi arabia has said it will reopen yemen's borders after widespread international criticism office blockade around the arab once poorest country yemen faces dire shortages of fuel food and water that the u.n. says puts millions of life lives at risk of famine a sound the led coalition had sealed off yemen last week in retaliation for a shia rebel missile attack to the u.s. president trump and his visit to the philippines now and they've been clashes between police and demonstrators in central as the u.s. leader met his counterparts at
a regional summit security teams use water cannon on the anti trump demonstrators in the filipino capital protesters are angry over trump's visit they say to worsen the human rights situation in the country away from the crowds leaders took part in the opening ceremony for the two day summit later met a controversial filipino president roderigo details day at the sidelines of the event the white house says human rights briefly came up in their conversation but trump made no mention of the subject in his remarks to reporters. ok let me go now live to our correspondent on our son to also she joins me now from the filipino capital they have been conflicting information about whether the issue of human rights was raised in the talks between the two presidents the white house says it was but the filipino government says it was not what is your understanding . well the spokes person of the president briefed the media after the bilateral
meeting and he said that human rights issues were not discussed it were not brought up so then they said he said that the two general leaders had a general discussion but there was no mention of human rights that's a great disappointment to a lot of human rights advocates who were hoping that the us and summit would be the venue for president donald to bring back the need to focus on the human rights crisis in the philippines because of the number of deaths related to the war on drugs launched by the detector administration and this is a highly anticipated meeting between the two presidents what does this visit mean for bilateral relations between the u.s. and the philippines the duty does seem to have gotten read to to even sung a song for the u.s. president yes to tara to did sing a traditional filipino love song for president and you could see the two kind of
like doing things to to appease her admirers one another donald trump and one traditional technology i think the signals better bilateral relations between the two countries especially sense if we're going to compare it to the relations between president to tear to and then president obama. and they have been protests in the capital despite all this goodwill between the leaders you talk to some demonstrators what do they have to say to you. there has been vigorous protests for the last five days every day from protesters who want to make it clear that president donald chop is not welcome in the country but when you visited the press the protesters kept this afternoon what we found among them was a lot of anger a lot of resentment towards philippine president rodrigo did character a lot of them had voted for him and now that they feel yes flip flopped on a lot of his campaign promises and strong on their hopes under the bus ride to.
the filipino capital manila thank you very much. you're watching the news coming up ahead two years after the bottom the need to survive off the attack that killed ninety people inside the paris concert venue on the night of tara but first. hanna joins me from business in a record big day for an economist juggernaut ali baba the chinese shopping joint certainly has reason to celebrate that softer shoppers spent a record twenty five billion dollars in just one day made the money as part of a promotion for a single stay relatively new event annual event which honors the on attached at its peak on saturday the online retailer was processing well over two hundred fifty thousand payments per second the vast majority of purchases are made on mobile
devices. well financial correspondent jenna dumas alone is at the frankfurt stock exchange jenelle this singles day hopefully we can see her. oh there she is ok this ingle day seems to be like a marketing masterstroke by people seem to really be buying into it. yes because apparently what the world really needed was another holiday geared towards consumption early shoppers seem to think and in fact investors like it as well as shares are actually trading one point three percent upwards following the success of the singles day weekend now it has to be said that this year it was still a predominantly chinese affair but more international companies are getting in on the action out of the one hundred forty thousand brands that participated in the event this year about sixty thousand for foreign brands and that's a six fold increase from last year so that tells us how important the chinese market is to the global retail industry and that singles day is probably only going
to get bigger from here on i thought it was singles day every day when it comes to online shopping general thank you very much indeed now the cost twenty three economy conference taking place in bonn is entering into its second week the countries meeting up and coming up with a rulebook to implement the paris climate accord to keep global warming within two degrees celcius now one of the countries not at that table is taiwan that's because it's not a member of the united nations but it is experiencing climate change so i wasn't planning on a cleaning up its energy act. severe storms and flooding most recently in october this year alone taiwan has been battered by extreme weather events many experts see this is a sign of climate change in action in response to the government wants to boost renewable energy generation capacity is being ramped up in wind and solar power production until now these renewables have only played
a minor role in taiwan's energy mix so there's much catching up to do. by twenty twenty five the government wants solar energy to supply ten percent of the country's electricity needs. wind energy is slated to cover five percent of demand and if so tied to a power biomass and geothermal energy will take taiwan's green energy to twenty percent. the aim is to phase out the country's nuclear power stations the focus of constant protests. since japan's fukushima plant meltdown taiwanese have lost their faith in nuclear. but eighty percent of taiwan's electricity would continue to come from fossil fuels in particular imported coal. so reducing greenhouse gas emissions will remain a major challenge time ones but capita c o two emissions are extremely high. and joining me now in the studio is taiwan's minister of the environment mr yuan
thank you very much thank you for joining us thank you now all eyes are on call twenty three currently underway in bonn at the moment taiwan is not a signatory to the paris agreement it's not a member of the united to len's eighty percent of your power is made up from fossil fuels what are you doing about it yeah so in order to comply with the paris agreement of prison time when in an inaugural speech you say we are going to join the fight in challenging the climate change so first we are going to restructure the whole energy mix we are going to cut down the coal energy from forty five point five percent to thirty percent by twenty twenty five so. we are going to increase the green energy from five percent to twenty percent and we would also increase the natural gas from twenty percent to fifty percent so by replacing
the call with the nature guess we can cut down about forty percent i want to going to cut it to get a forty percent of the carbon dioxide let me just pick you up and not them because green energy sheriffs are doing the math says around twenty percent natural gas is still a fossil fuel there so it's just not a distraction from more renewable energy in a way yes but from the the level the extent of the emission of the carbon dioxide it does decrease reduced by forty percent compared to the coal it all you have so many coal demonstration just a few days ago right here in von barwig yeah you know and so the executives the same you are going to face all of the new korea energy by twenty twenty two we close with twenty. five you see the demonstration it's like the same so we're going to face off by twenty twenty five so this is a transition period but we are determined to comply was the person where do everything we can you are determined that you are not
a signatory to the paris we have said about that so that means that in some ways you're not part of the rulebook that's currently being drawn up so how then do you make sure the industry in taiwan downs switch to renewable do you offer them incentives can you police that yeah because we're also you know industrialize a state we reckon i'm a five in trade in. germany in asia and some twenty one twenty two or wide semiconductor is quite. interested you know paula. some sun sun power you know. plate is also very important so we're going to introduce this a cap and trade system by twenty twenty how about work because it we are going to issue the. renewable energy certificate to those who comply with the emission
standards. so then they can use this certificate. trade in you know. a target. in the future in this emission trading system they can trade in a cap and trade you know into this international carbon market system i'm sure you're well aware of the fact minister of course that renewable energy is one thing it doesn't always equate to energy efficiency taiwan is currently the world's twenty second largest economy what effect will switching to renewables have on you economic standing are you concerned about that or so we have to have good dialogue with industry and we are going to provide this. renewable energy by by location for example the central taiwan is good in wind power with industry tried to use the kind of. power in the area so you would improve the efficiency
by cutting down the loss of the energy because the transportation and that is the price i own the. demand side we're also going to introduce this kind of smart grid system so you can more efficiently. use the energy that you've produced ok mr lee taiwan's minister of the environment pleasure to have you with us here on daybreak thank you thank you. france germany and twenty other e.u. governments have sealed a difference agreement they hope will mark a new era of european military cooperation you foreign and defense ministers formally signed the pact earlier today in brussels one of the agreements aims is to cement european unity after britain leaves the bloc in two thousand and nineteen a london has long opposed the move fearing it could lead to the formation of a european army and that we draw in our correspondent in brussels catherine martins
catherine why do you ministers feel compelled to sign such a pact now. well in the latest zero pm history we have to say there are really game changes you're already mentioned why now the european union is capable to produce a result when it comes to defense matters so bracks a triggered really are higher motivation to closer and further corporation in terms of military affairs and also the president trample action with the united states as a less reliable partner when it comes to defense matters so this is why because we have to be in mind the european defense union this idea is almost as old as the european union without decades without result so now in brussels it was a very important signal regarding the united states to say that you are your opinions union is able to take care of its own security issues in the neighborhood
and also for example in africa without begging for american help so what exactly does this defense agreement include well so it is really a systematic and greater corporation regarding defense and military corporations so this means for example very concrete that existing national units will be available for operations and military corp so existing military gear to use this in a more efficient way it doesn't sound very groundbreaking but we have to know that the european union is losing a lot of efficiency because due to this kind of over production and military a first for example a very easy example to understand right now in that you there are more than twenty types of military helicopters and this is something the european union wants to change in order to be a real power a real player in this field and to say we harmonize and be corporate much and way
stronger in the european union but catching the funding for this project is still not secure a multi billion euro fund to support the fact is still under negotiation could that become an issue. well of course it is an issue always when it comes to money it's very important to see how the european partners really react and of course right now there are twenty three members who are ready to commit for higher financial commitment when it comes to defense spending but of course very really have to see how this commitment if the member states really really honor their commitment at the long run when it comes raided two of the concrete implementation of this european defense project right cats are not ins in brussels thank you. going out to france which has been being homage to the victims of the country's worst of a terrorist attacks that shook the city of paris two years ago president emanuel
mackerel has led the memorial ceremonies and met with survivors and family members on november thirteenth two thousand and fifteen islamist extremists killed one hundred thirty people at several locations across the city france has since passed a far reaching antiterrorism law that has been criticized for curbing civil liberties. the attacks of two years ago in the heart of the french capital send shock waves across the country but the impact was greatest for those directly affected d.w. spoke to one survivor of the bottle massacre about that night of terror and it's after effects. whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on nov thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him. to get. i'm very strongly attached to this place
because it's in a good way. it's as if the better class had a soul and protected me so. i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened this you know. this stuff barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months after what's his question. dramatic stress disorder. but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was plagued by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells so they get apologetic and. christoph went to therapy to help
him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive these tatoos mean that night in november is forever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gunshop when. they show that i was there that night and who i am. and that's all. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap now but. i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago.
but now i'm thinking seize the day because. you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy. with all that. stuff things france has stood its ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together and not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won. the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long. and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and. in a way that's a victory for the terrorists or because they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights to do is. that.
this office more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose another friend or relative to terrorism even more reason he says to live every minute of every day. here's a recap of the top stories we're following for you indeed a powerful earthquake has killed at least three hundred people and injured over twenty five hundred on the border between iraq and iran relief efforts on to re off the seven point three magnitude quake struck meet on sunday. and u.s. president donor has met his controversial philippines conduct bond order to go to ten to hundreds of protesters descended on the summit in manila attended by the two media is. known for get over his good news on the go just done to the after movie or from the apple store let me give you access to all of the latest news from a wrong the one to as well as post notifications for any breaking news you can also of course use it to send us your photos and videos which you can find be
