5:03 pm
people want to know how the attacks keep happening in a city already on to tighten security measures. all right and then we can take you to kabul now of where the security situation has been very precarious for some time now but the uptick in violence over the past couple of days is very concerning and journalist to hear contrary is on the line from the capital with the latest tara what is the situation in kabul right now. well the situation in coal everyone is in shock and everyone is terry height and horrifies of the recent serious attacks because it was in the attack. on the attack today we have had a couple of like over the last few days in fact three attacks over the last ten days in kabul and hardly more than two hundred people killed so people are still in or even though the afghan government declared a public holiday today because the indonesian president was coming to afghanistan
5:04 pm
is in afghanistan so that's why but it's still people there are still thinking until morning about the loss of loads of civilians and nobody knows why all right we'll tell you why it's kabul facing such an uptick of attacks right now at this moment what's going on there. well the afghan government killing that at least more than twenty terrorism groups operate in five kabul city the president of afghanistan recently say that call is very speedy but the afghan people here believe that it's not only kabul but the whole afghanistan is under siege and the problem is that he can come in has recently been so much full of the internal politics so therefore god in that period you know a priority for them for example three security ministers appeared in a press conference yesterday three of been people who are accused additionally sit down as soon as possible but they don't so seems like the afghan government as well people here accusing the afghan government of
5:05 pm
a failure but then the afghan government accuses the regional countries some specific countries all of interfering into going to appear in the in the security it is you know a blame game that afghans don't like it here because everyone wants some sort of accountability at this point all right now to hear you're already alluded to the fact that the in the nation president jacoby doto is visiting kabul what does that say about president ash of the need government and the security forces ability to secure kabul the capital. it is not the first time actually when a high profile foreigner or in the town explains so it is very unfortunate even though the afghan government wanted to because there has been an outcry an outburst of prostration by public over the last few days to the afghan government thought to be to declare today as the holidays so that nobody may take to the streets in protest but unlike that you know unlike season two the expectation of the afghan
5:06 pm
government today another took place so it was very unfortunate and even did an afghan government didn't expect it and i'm sure it wasn't a very good welcoming to the indonesian president but it is not the first time with such attacks take place when high profile people come to afghanistan so does wind down for quite complicating then is to become of the a polity of the president or ensuring security to your kaderi in kabul thank you. well so-called islamic state may have claimed responsibility for the latest kabul attack but it's been almost completely defeated on the ground in syria and iraq while that means many of its fighters are returning to their home countries what kind of threat do such battle hardened veterans opposed to their hometowns in places like germany france and britain belgium is the european country with the highest per capita number of foreign fighters our brussels correspondent teri schultz followed their tracks. this park in antwerp was a hotspot for islamist recruiters luring young belgians to battlefields in syria

5:10 pm
same thing on the housing side it. that man is still a success story two years later but there are more i guess followers being groomed peter van listing in one of the best known researchers of the belgian jihad movement says he sees no decrease in pro jihad language on social media how strong is their influence well basically. the next that their captains are free however the belgian government appears a bit more optimistic than venomous d.m. it has reduced to the national terror threat level meaning an attack is no longer considered probable but rather unlikely. aren't talking now as some of the other stories making news around the world. observers say at least sixty civilians have been killed in government airstrikes on syria's if the problem is that brings the death toll to some thirty three people since sunday and lip is the only province in syria under the control of opposition forces government troops have been making

farmers from tending to crops and livestock that they depend on for their livelihoods. whole villages life at the moment the government is bracing for a possible three month long emergency in the areas around my own more rain is forecast for the coming week. all right we've got so much more to tell you about here's what's coming up. prizes and politics at this year's grammys in new york as female musicians confront sexual harassment in the recording industry on the awards front the night long to bruno mars. and there is a new european handball champion after spain down sweden in a dramatic final in zagreb on sunday. but first her reactions to a shocking report people using words like superb flu is repulsive absurd and in excusable what are we talking about to be so great and it just got really bad it's
5:14 pm
going from one thing to the next and this one is unbelievable some of the reaction later was mentioning that newspaper reports today that the german car giant's finance talk sic emissions testing on humans as well as monkeys the aim was to give diesel a good name and secure valuable tax breaks but the plan backfired. do you like my new car isn't days older moms say in two thousand and fourteen this v.w. commercial set out to prove just how clean diesel was with the help of a white scarf they out clean. around the same time twenty five healthy young people were taking part in a series of tests for several hours a few times a week they had to breathe in the pollutants nitrogen dioxide the tests were commissioned by the european research group on environmental health a body funded by come a kez v.w. dime b.m.w. and pumped supply ambush and the results were a relief nitrogen dioxide the study concluded had no negative effects on people an
5:15 pm
all clear for diesel and a snub to the world health organization is research its conclusion was one of the different namely that diesel emissions cause cancer the human tests are a new low point for comic is they follow revelations last week that monkeys were forced to inhale cull fumes in two thousand and fourteen something v.w. has since apologized for in two thousand and fifteen the emissions scandal showed v.w. had spent years manipulating its vehicles nitrogen dioxide output the comic had hoped to leave all that behind it but these latest revelations suggest that that is unlikely any time soon. of a twelfth national correspondent in frankfurt daniel koch don't know what a car shares doing today for was in. well actually with this news you might be thinking that we would see a landslide here happening at the frankfurt stock exchange well actually the opposite is the case shares of volkswagen were at some part of the day even number
5:16 pm
two here right now they are still with a plastic off about zero point two per cent i was talking to an investor a little bit earlier he told me that they're pretty much used by the company to get those negative public reports but on the other hand the company in the last weeks and months has been provide. very strong numbers with the record sales numbers for example in china to investors and also receiving a very positive comment commentary from an analyst today so that's the reason despite the very strong euro that we are also seeing today that the shares are actually doing very well today ben what about the long term though because the supervisory board calling for an inquiry they could well be consequences where do you think this is going to go. well everybody is criticizing heavily at the company we also had a statement a little bit earlier by the german traffic minister and the volkswagen is
5:17 pm
announcing that there might be consequences but what kind of consequences we might see is there going to be a new c.e.o. ed was fired well certainly not i believe we're going to see maybe something similar that we have seen in the past also happening to all of us schmidt remember he was one of the employees involved in the diesel gate scandal in the united states he was then sentenced to seven years in prison and at the end was even fired him so i do believe at the end they're not going to be any consequences at the top level they're most likely only going to be looking for a scapegoat and yeah that's pretty much most likely going to be it let's hope the scapegoats not that monkey thank you daniel cope. now we've got with us in the studio a religious affairs and ethics report it. martin this is a real ethical topic to talk to you about you know how bad the outcry is when lab
5:18 pm
animals a used in skin products for example rabbits and rats and that we're talking about humans and monkeys i mean it really is quite absurd in this day and age there is no ethical dilemma here i mean in the sense and at the limits what emerges when you're not really sure what way to go because you have very strong reasons to do one thing and to the direct opposite here there is no question this is just a bit of an outrage and what he's quite notable it's that this actually did receive the human the human experiment which happened in germany i mean the monkey experiment happening in the u.s. was approved by back in university medical school at the explored how to get past and i think well this is something that we do not understand i mean i read i read the conclusion that the that takes protocol demand which is first i mean first if there is any conflict of interest i think that anybody that's not understand that this research unit that has essentially been set up for the sake of the fending industry. is not itself a reliable source of information in that industry or the products of that industry
5:19 pm
so that is the first question the other issue is that although the monkey story is a lot more detail later because it clearly it's outrageous just to think of these animals defenseless being locked up in a chamber. with exhaust fumes the story with human subjects it's a lot more interesting because it actually suppose that in fact there was that there was consent what we do not know we for these were people that were actually you know financially strained were actually setting themselves essentially to receive harm because of recent study where of course completely extraneous to just their own witnesses who would put their hand up something like this in their in their right mind but often get paid for these sorts of studies on yes indeed you are and this is extremely problematic of course in a situation which you have people with needs is study certainly a problem what does it tell you about the extent to which companies will go just to get. tax break companies quite simply cannot be trusted on matters of the public good i mean for the simple reason not that they are evil but for the simple reason
5:20 pm
that they have conflicting interests with the public good the companies interested in the bottom line the public is interested in the good in cases like this one we see actually that these two interests collapse so the legal issue is really not there it's not an ethical dilemma there is a question of a complete lack of regulation but as was said i mean in the previous episode we basically just cut them loose and let them go on doing their business thank you very much for your insight my pleasure. the stars of the music business were out in force in new york city for the industry's annual grammy awards well the surprise winner of the night was bruno mars who beat tough competition the likes of jay z. and kendrick lamar to take home six awards but music wasn't the only item on the bill following the lead of the golden globes many participants and attendees wore white roses as a visible show of solidarity with the need to end times up movements confronting sexual misconduct in show business.
5:21 pm
bruno swept the grammys this year with six wins including record and album of the year for twenty four k. magic and song of the year for that's what i like he gave a heartfelt speech as he accepted his award and you know those songs were written with nothing but joy and one reason and for one reason only and that's love and that's all i wanted to bring with this album hopefully i can feel that again and see everybody dancing and everybody moving but it's mars went into orbit rapper's kendrick lamar and jay z. were left down on earth leaving the hip hop community without a win in the coveted album of the year award the man had to take consolation in just five prices for his album down and single humble but this year music wasn't the only thing sent to stage with sexual misconduct allegations rocking other areas of the entertainment business music industry figures showed solidarity for the times up and me two campaigns by wearing white roses and pop singer catcha who has
