future of the nato alliance we'll go live to brussels and a neo nazi goes to jail for life they have to cheat us found guilty of ten murders in germany most of them racially motivated the evidence presented in the five year long trial shocked the nation. i'm sumi so much kinder good to have you with us the football world cup and russia has delivered another thriller croatia beat england in the semifinal and is now heading to its first ever world cup final striker mario munch you could show scoring the winning goal in extra time that gave his team zero to one win and fans here you see in the croatian capitals they went wild waving national flags lighting flares they celebrated late into the night now the country will face france in the final on sunday. let's get more on the world cup with all of our mood he's standing
by for us in moscow with the latest all over if you can see if you can hear us rather there you are a take us about a thrilling game last night. yeah it was a really tense much right through to the very end of extra time it was a game where both teams dominated in different stages but i think over the course of the game of the full hundred twenty minutes croatia did have the upper hand more than england did so and the final score of course reflected that let's take a look now at the highlights and see exactly how that panned out. in england croatia and the pressure from the get go forcing a foul on delhi alley and giving england their first chance on goal kieren trippier with a perfectly timed free kick one for the three lions in the fifteen minutes. it took croatian to the sixty eight to break anyones defense even parazit far more determined to get the ball than carl walker one oval. and despite multiple chances
there were no more goals in the regular ninety minutes the game heading into actual time. in the one hundred ninety minutes marmande you catch with the decider i score a parasitic turn provider and you wouldn't pick for it in the goal which without a chance. this young three lions team's dream dashed in the most painful way while croatia celebrate reaching their first world cup final. ali what did you think of the performances we saw from both teams. well you know croatia didn't really look that impressive early on the england very much dominated the opening exchanges and of course took advantage of that to some extent with the opening goal but really they just made the rest of gracious performance all the
more impressive the fact that they managed to fight back through the second half and really sort of take the game by the scruff of the neck and then through extra time maintain the upper hand as well and you got to remember gratian had played extra time in the previous two rounds so a lot of people i certainly was expecting them to to struggle as the game went on for england to have a physical advantage as the game went on in fact quite the opposite half in the question players look fresh going into extra time and i think the two goals showcased as well both came really from croatia plays reacting more quickly than england defenders did so very impressive in croatia and it bodes well for them going into the final what was it like in the stadium last night well you know in the stands it was a bit like it was out on the pitch as well as the england fans were really in great voice early on in the game really getting behind that same and it did feel like for a while that the game might just get away from core a show with england dominating play and the atmosphere really getting behind
england as well but obviously things did change through the game of fighting back and their fans of course found their voice too and there was a really nice moment at the end of the game where the gracious players went over to celebrate in front of the main stands where the croatian fans have been sitting and standing so a great moment there for the fans who have made the journey to to russia what does england take away from this year they came so close how disappointed will they be after such a great run. of course it's hugely disappointing and i think you know a lot of ing the fans would have been expecting the team with that dominance to get a second goal and really put the game to bed but this has been a hugely positive tournament for england the narrative surrounding the national team has changed completely gareth southgate deserves a huge amount of credit for changing the attitude around the team in the atmosphere that the team generates. the it feels a little bit like germany back in two thousand and six in fact where the team and the fans suddenly feel much closer than they did previously so although it's
a huge disappointment of the england fans i'm sure wishing that they could have made the final i think there's a lot for england to look forward to suggest really a bright future that england moving in the right direction and what about for croatia can they take down france in the final well it's going to be hugely difficult for them france are a very accomplished side they've looked very composed in their knockout game so far they haven't perhaps sparkled in attack in the way that you'd expect of a team with so much talent but they've been very good at the back with iran and the two cents about keeping four clean sheets already at the tournament. so it's a different proposition the final compared to the semifinal against england and pressure as well as i mentioned they've played extra time several times already three times now in all of their knock out games essentially to put that into context they've played an extra games worth of football compared to france who have
won all their matches in ninety minutes so you do have to think that at some point physically this is all going to catch up with croatia but what we've seen from them so far and we saw it again last night is that they just have this great fighting spirit they never give up so france will have to put on a good performance to beat and to claim the title as favorites. all over a movie for us in moscow good to see you. that donald trump has left nato allies reeling with a demand to double their defense spending the first day of the nato summit in brussels saw tense exchanges with the u.s. president accusing members of the military alliance of not pulling their weight but the amount she considers appropriate no less than four percent of g.d.p. shock it's a way above the target nato members had previously agreed on. trump took aim at the german chancellor saying her country wants us protection from russia while cutting energy deals with moscow at the same time germany he charges is
a captive of the kremlin. germany will have over seventy percent of the country controlled by russia with that you will get so you tell me is that appropriate are they really like you complaining about this for the time i got a job that never going to have to happen but germany is totally controlled by russia. merkel was quick to respond with some perspective from her own biography. it's mexico as if i'd like to say that i personally experienced a part of germany when it was controlled by the soviet union so i'm glad that today we are united in freedom and that we can therefore also say that we determine our policies independently and can make independent decisions to put it to. the dying so in the good side and for the open discord between germany and the us has overshadowed the summit all eyes skyward the only moment where everyone was looking
in the same direction harmony is not in trump's nato playbook he'd rather set the agenda including his one on one meeting with nato general secretary young burke. tranced chief complaint the u.s. pays to much other nato members pay too little to the president which companies want to spend a great he's the oldest of the many. years back where they're dealing with the united states they are there in two thousand and fourteen only britain and greece made the agreed contribution of two percent of g.d.p. for defense spending germany lags behind with one point eighteen percent this year according to nato poland the three baltic countries and romania will all reach the two percent mark germany will spend more but with one point two four percent it still falls behind the target berlin can't count on any backing from the nato general secretary even saying to transfer the pressure from washington. we all
agree that we do not have fair burden sharing in our alliance today we all agree it but we need more trash in national defense budgets at this point charm offensive appear to leave trump cold his main message is friendships hold up badly when money's involved. let's go right to do that is max hoffman he is at nato headquarters in brussels for us hi max after such a confrontational start what are we going to see today. indeed it was a confrontational stars to me on wednesday morning but you know what then it got better incredible but true because if you look at the actual facts the u.s. are carrying the nato communiqué they support it and they didn't change a thing so donald trump did not want the two percent goal that we just heard about in that report from catherine martin's anchored as a binding goal in there it remains an aim that the different nato member states are
pursuing and so that's good news for nato but with donald trump you never know this should be the easier day but if you look at the tweets from last night he might have another surprise for us if things go as planned then today they're going to meet ukraine and georgia two potential future nato allies although there is nothing immediate in the cards here and they will talk about their mission in afghanistan they have pledged to continue to support afghanistan and the afghan troops with their training mission beyond twenty twenty so that's the plan normally the summit should wrap up around midday but as i said before with the u.s. president you never know and next you know they didn't anchor the two percent in the communique but trump did say he wants allies to double their defense spending to four percent of g.d.p. how realistic is that for most nato members. yeah we got that confirmed for a number of diplomats who were present at that working session on wednesday he didn't mention it but then he basically got ignored that's what we heard so
everybody politely listened but never you know took it and tried to follow up on it just listened and then didn't talk about it anymore you can find in the communique so the communicate is the roadmap in effect you can say this will probably not have huge consequences here it just seems like he's catering to his home crowd as he always does in the u.s. but what actually happens on the ground in nato is a different thing actually touched on the unpredictability of the u.s. president the subtext we've heard here is pay up or we will not guarantee your protection could we actually see the u.s. leave this alliance. that's not at all the spirit that was communicated by most member states and again if you look at what trump is talking about in nato he's talking about the things he knows the business side the money he doesn't really get involved militarily he seems to be leaving that up to the u.s. military because it seems like he doesn't know
a lot of things maybe defense is that part that's opic he does not want to touch because he doesn't know enough about it unlike trade for example again we don't know but this seems to be what we're hearing or that's what we're hearing from they told the actual work the actual military direction has not changed with trump all right max huffman reporting for us from nato headquarters in brussels thank you very much max now one of germany's longest and most notorious neo nazi murder trials in munich court has sentenced a member of a far right terror cell to life in prison back to chief was found guilty for her role in the murder of ten people she belong to a group calling itself the national socialist underground or n.s.u. it carried out the racially motivated murders two bombings and a series of robberies over a decade. guilty of ten counts of murder beyond
the only survivor of the neo nazi murder cell sentenced to life in prison it was the maximum sentence but it was little consolation for the victims' relatives. to once more to ask them to call the evidence against and in favor of the defendant was considered but the trial didn't address the suffering of the victims' families a trial they want considered in anyway so upright you the court didn't even take note of the impact of these crimes that. our trust in the legal system suffered enormously even before the trial after the verdict it's just the same we have no trust in the system anymore unfortunately one of the biggest question throughout the trial was whether beyond a cheap but was an accomplice or merely a follower jaipal claimed it was her partner's sin of a burn heart both of whom committed suicide who had murdered ten people she played a background role and never pulled the trigger during the trial shaper maintained she knew nothing about the murders although she lived with the two men for fourteen
years as lawyers say she's not a perpetrator they plan to appeal project it will be here as chipper was convicted as a stand in for something she neither wanted nor did the state has to deal with the fact that the real perpetrators of these horrific crimes cannot be punished anymore . after five years the trial has finally come to an end but many questions remain unanswered where there are no accomplices what role did the intelligence services play and how did police failed to properly investigate the case is this it's good that there is a clear and unequivocal verdict today what's also very clear is that today's verdict should not put an end to the discussion and it should not put an end to the debate surrounding a resolution which. means our four other men were convicted of being and as you accomplices one of them has already completed his sentence and. walked out of court a free man relatives of the victim suspect that there are other people who knew
about the crimes and facilitated them they are demanding that investigators stay on the case until they have answered all their questions. so it's just a general action. and of the general public was a positive one because for a long time to chipper like we heard in the report didn't say anything and she insisted that she had nothing to do with it and yet the judge ruled that she was involved and that there was no way that she could not have known but if you look at the other four people on trial we also heard in the report that one of them has already served his sentence and that caused some controversy that made some relatives cry outside the courtroom and they said that the fact that this near nazi can walk away and the new nazis when they hear that verdict and sending a very bad signal and we've heard that there were some scuffles even outside the courtroom tell us about that that was exactly after. this verdict was announced.
he was to serve two and a half years in prison but he was now a free man because you don't read that sentence. the relatives complained that the judge didn't do anything to stop what about these on and on answered questions we heard about and in our report the role of the authorities for example or you have to know that germany of course is a federal system so we've got lots of security agencies and it's still not clear what the exact role was of some of the liaison officers who work for the for the offices for the protection of the constitution of sorts if you take for example the case of this one liaison officer who was nearby when a owner of an internet cafe was murdered we still don't know what leslie. on officer had to do there on the scene he was questioned for more than thirty days
during the trial but he just refused to answer any questions and to explain his role there plus this office in the state of hessen has now decided that they're going to put the files away for one hundred twenty years so we will not know in our lifetime what about if there was a a larger broader network supporting the n.s.u. what are authorities doing to investigate that well lots of people are saying this medicine reese can't have happened without a broader network this cons of been done by these seven people who are now essentially known to be the official members and accomplices of the and as you so lots of people are saying this murder spree happened nationwide who serves those victims that is something that we don't know who helped them organize all the transport that is another thing there are a lot of things that are unanswered and mackel actually the federal chancellor she promised that in two thousand and twelve she said to the relatives we'll make sure
that you'll get all the answers and now of course the relatives said after the verdict this is not the answers we were looking for but again you have to say it wasn't based trials purpose either strictly speaking in the legal sense it was never this trial but nevertheless like the relatives the lawyers are saying investigations have to continue all right our political correspondent nina covering this story for us thank you very much neal. now on to some other stories making headlines around the world in western japan the government says at least one hundred ninety five people have died after torrential rains caused severe flooding and landslides hundreds of thousands of homes have been destroyed days of intense heat and water shortages in the region are raising fears of disease outbreaks. italy's interior minister says his country won't consider a migrant to take back deal with germany until the e.u. reinforces its external borders and shares the burden of new arrivals his comments

ambassador to the w t o denis share accuses china of seriously harming members of the group by failing to live up to free trade principles a w t o policy review of chinese trade has turned into a new frontline in washington's trade war with beijing. china's compliance with w t o guidelines lies at the heart of the conflict notably over beijing's a legend state support for companies that are a stance of lee private w t o rules permit some government support for national industries under specific circumstances in geneva on wednesday china's vice commerce minister one shall win defended china's record. we would like to call all doubly to all members to vessel that found the fundamental principles and the call fairness of the most natural trading system including m.f. and national cheatham and and special and differential treatment for developing
members and two family stand up to change the bully protectionism and the in the lateralus. washington's main bone of contention is that under the w t o rules china continues to self identify as a developing nation president trump tweeted in april that this allowed china to get advantages especially over the us the us argued that if beijing's behavior went unchecked it would ruin the world trade organization the u.s. has demanded that the w.t. o. address what it called china's failure to embrace the open market policies on which the institution was founded the european ambassador to the w.t. o. admitted there needs to be reform. for the long given of the. multilateral trading system the rules need to be updated in we hope that we will also find china as
a constructive partner but trump has already raised the stakes and blocking appointments to the w t o's appeals chamber to replace judges as their terms expire unless he relents the world's trade disputes system will be unable to operate by the end of twenty nineteen or sooner. comcast tests. sweetened it's a bid for pan-european t.v. group sky to more than thirty four billion dollars the entertainment firm raising its offer to oust rival twenty first century fox which up to the stakes just hours earlier rupert murdoch's fox already owns parts of sky but hopes to take control of the entire company comcast is also embroiled in a takeover battle with disney for fox entertainment assets that are being split off from murdoch's empire. businesses are grappling with europe's migration debate germany's interior minister wants asylum seekers at the border center back but there is a catch germany is in the schengen area which means open borders allowing for the
free flow of people goods and services stricter controls threaten the concept of just in time cross a border supply chains business warns millions of euros are at stake. this truck from hungary has arrived just in time the products are needed by the company. and germany's southwestern state of boston verdant panic the german company produces fans for example to be used in air conditioners showing the work with the hungry and plant makes the end product competitive supply chain delays due to new border controls would make the fans more expensive. this will be if we had a plan for one and two more days in the supply chain then we'd need to build a storage hall for eight thousand parts at about two point five million euros the customers would likely have to live with longer delivery times that would be unacceptable and on affordable food. for the truck the bottleneck is the german
austrian border where german police perform visual inspections to prevent refugees from entering the country illegally that leads to long traffic jams at the border on certain days from january to may twenty eight hundred four thousand six hundred attempted on authorized entries into germany where registered of those two thousand four hundred fifty individuals were turned away many were hidden on the trucks cargo beds. in munich it's rush hour at the wholesale produce market hundreds of trucks deliver fresh fruits and vegetables from southern europe every day they all depend on open borders. then a clutch month gets his fruit from southern italy increase passport controls directly at the border crossings would delay his deliveries from italy considerably . material out of the thousands we deal with fresh produce of this would certainly have an effect on the prices and of course on the quality it is decisive if the
delivery truck has been on the road for twenty four more hours here if if if you don't have access with longer waiting times at the border crossing such as from italy some dealers fear that some tropical fruits would disappear from the market completely. trade is a permanent race against time and against low margins. things get worse people would get laid off the fewer hours business volume reduced those are the effects that come with this i don't need to tell anyone if you have a company and it's not going as well as it should then the consequences are simple and if it gets really bad you shut down. every delay at the border would cost chaos in the supply chains that have already developed and would cause incalculable economic damages the schengen agreement is at stake. well just enough time for this the dreams of a global bike sharing start up oh by a turned into
