it's great to have you along everyone. one of nato's most to mulch a summits in a long time has ended u.s. president donald trump made a number of strident and highly critical remarks same to specially add germany but before leaving the summit trump reaffirmed his commitment to nato and said that the allies had all agreed to increase their budget contributions. nato's general secretary may have the hammer but it's donald trump who set the agenda before the summit he repeated his demand to members of the alliance to spend more on defense after a special meeting at trump's request the u.s. president presented himself as the one who would gain the upper hand. they have substantially up there. and now we're very happy to have a very very powerful very very strong nato much stronger than it was two days ago has the u.s. president successfully put pressure on the others french president emmanuelle
8:03 pm
mcconnell says trump has not threatened to withdraw from the alliance the german chancellor minced her words. i can only summarize this result in light of the changing security conditions all nato members are prepared to make their own contributions. in. germany aims to boost defense spending levels to around one point five percent of g.d.p. by twenty twenty four whether this figure will rise further is unclear. by the discussion of many european allies here and not just the us we must continue to ask how we can contribute rather than fight to trump is visiting britain then he heads to helsinki to meet russian president vladimir putin nato partners will be watching closely to see what unfolds. while a defense spending was a hot button issue out this a nato summit where president trump going after germany in particular for not
8:04 pm
contributing enough to the budget catherine martin is caught up with young to how of the german marshall fund she began by asking him whether president trump's criticism was justified. well i think you know this is the one point where president trump really you know his his critique is justified to a large degree it's always a bit of a question as to how you do it how you say it what words you're using and whether you want to revert to personal insult but it's clear that germany has underperformed it's something that we've been you know that we've known for so many years and this is the president who has chosen to make that you know one of his you know pet peeves one of his things that gets i'm going this is an unusual situation for the germans and so we you know when the government announces that more defense spending is forthcoming but it's still not meeting two percent you know that's not going to keep the u.s. president comes or yes there is stairs lots of ammunition in this and will stay in there for a while how realistic is it that germany meets the two percent requested by two
8:05 pm
thousand and twenty four or even before it still seems rather unrealistic i don't think that there's very much political capital in the german political scene that really wants to go there and wants to spend this much but you know twenty twenty four is also still six years away six years in political terms is an eternity and we have seen how much as possible you know if the political pressures become very urgent and if you know the the outside and inside pressures you know become more visible you know then all of a sudden stuff can happen but at this current point in twenty eighteen my feeling is that you know there's very little willingness on behalf of politicians to go all the way and also when you actually ask the people you know when you ask the voters you know they you know at a very very large majority are against going up and so you know a tremendously you know difficult situation a bind almost a dilemma that germany finds itself in. to how she m.-f. speaking to catherine martin's there in brussels well another item on the agenda of
8:06 pm
the nato summit was gonna stand or increasing numbers of women are joining the army about nine hundred are now serving and they often face opposition from their male colleagues or from their own families but the contribution that women can make so national security especially once nato soldiers leave is increasingly being recognized by the government in kabul ha scene is exhausted after more than three hours of field training it's hot and dusty in the mountains around kabul here young women female soldiers in the afghan army are being trained for combat. just staying at home with your parents or with your husband that's easy to follow but i want to experience something different something that challenges me that won't be lacking in the army combat training two hours earlier women in the army of a country where it's only men who are in charge in which the word of the tribal leaders applies and in combat units there are several reasons for this firstly
8:07 pm
the group as they are not allowed to take women as prisoners they cannot even touch them that's forbidden in our traditions and in such cases the army needs women not that i should be going to the one i made on weapons training many men become deserted is because the family at home in the village is having problems or the head of the tribe is calling for them women are needed to fill in the gaps. the second reason. is that i'm personally i have no problem with the army and no problem with not being in a unit with men others may see this differently and criticize the. benefits of oklahoma but then. there's plenty of criticism of the women who leave their tribe and join the army but often there are tangible economic problems behind it. the home in civilian life women have always had a difficult time finding work even in public administration or in the government
8:08 pm
the army which was always considered particularly conservative gives women a chance it's a pioneer and we are quite proud of that. move and. the armed forces are undergoing an unstoppable revolution that is still far from civilian afghanistan patriarchal structures are breaking up because the pressure is high and the situation simply requires it. behold that is also what we have a daunting task here in afghanistan namely to bring about peace. we need everyone who is willing to help very clued in women it was a level muslim putting us at some point the nato soldiers will leave then the afghan army will be expected to guarantee the security of the country kabul will be glad of anyone willing to continue the fight against the taliban whether they're men or women. now from brussels the u.s.
8:09 pm
president then that went on to travel to what he called hot spot britain his trip coincides with what is already a difficult week for prime minister to resign may she suffered a number of us ignitions over handling of britain's exit from the e.u. trump adding fuel to the fire by weighing in on the issue doll trump and first lady arrived on air force one to start the four day visit is expected to talk about a possible bilateral trade deal among other topics with prime minister theresa may least expect more than one hundred protests across the nation during his visit. all right let's check in with our correspondent of a so she is in the british capital a london barbara president trunk is spending the night to add the u.s. ambassador's residence so we can guess the reception inside and from the prime minister have been better than what you're hearing outside. then
8:10 pm
knowing syria in the background i doubt that the president tadic copter that is just leaving for the official dinner mysteries that may head around i could sixty industrial leaders heads out the crowd here is really yelling and screaming at painting on pots and making them know he was supposed noise because that's what their protests here and they gave up the embassy president to sit out there was. keep they say night they want to keep this up all throughout the night so that he won't get it steve because they protest against all these stands and every aspect of his policy. and we just caught a glimpse of the chopper leaving behind you know before their meeting the u.s. president has already weighed in on the prime minister teresa mayes difficulties with her country's exit talks from the european union or here he is from earlier
8:11 pm
today suggesting she isn't following what breaks it borders want it. well. you know i've been reading a lot about that over the last couple of days and that seems to be turning a little bit differently where they're getting at least partially back with the european union. barbara how will the trump may talks go will they even discuss perks it. probably i mean he's probably just going to say to raise i'm am we know how technical he can be with talking to female leaders oh to raise our house here for exit going these days because just a few days earlier he said that it had thrown at this government in shambles and then the and american ambassador here in london had to sort of pick up the pieces and say no you really didn't mean it that but that's just one thing i mean brit is largely don't want trump to interfere in bracks it because they say kids their own
8:12 pm
decision and if he gets into the fight and into the war here it's going to make things worse and on the other hand what your reason may once of course is to rekindle the special relationship that she things britain and the us can still have bought we know that she does like series of may but probably not as much as i'm glad merkel but quite a lot he called her a schoolmistress so she is he has problems with female leaders they are not really getting on very well if they talk about a trade deal he has he will give who is certainly some issuances spot we have seen at nato what trumps assurances are worse these days people have probably forgotten as soon as he leaves the country he doesn't use barbara is the were courting a from london thank you. all right now to some of the other stories making news around the world. israel has released a video of its forces attacking syrian military positions in the occupied golan
8:13 pm
heights the country said its forces hit three targets in retaliation after a syrian drone entered israeli air space syrian forces continue to push toward the goal line an area israel seized from syria in one thousand nine hundred. the seven the un still guards it as syrian territory. the former separatist leader of catalonia karla's pretty much could soon be extradited to spain as after german court cleared his extradition on a charge that he misused public funds which more fled spain last year after attempting to declare catalonia independence and he's been in germany since march. all right i'd like to hand you over to daniela you have a story on some rather unusual industrial action in italy that's right but there is a serious reason behind although it is quite unusual what is it a few a chrysler plant in italy will go on strike this month and they have
8:14 pm
a very good reason football football christiane rinaldo has just signed a deal to transfer to you venters to remain for have replaced tag so what's the big deal about this big deal. these because it's an italian fee it chrysler factory are angry the reason news of a costly football transfer christiane i renounce always leaving rail madrid's to join you ventus to in for a total of one hundred million euros it cities and the family and shan's in both fit and eventis employees say the owners should invest the money in them instead that's why they've decided to strike. and that's kept me in fact i guess like a punch in the face for those working here for over forty years we've received little money but for right now though there's money it's a shame it's disgusting. others say the transfer is a marketing move. the costs are huge trees as you know but then yeah the
8:15 pm
family knows how to do their math i mean you'd have to fight it will do more to read and it knows that there's a reward of the same value for the company to put it out the books are going to tell us what you've got. and then there are those who are just happy for that scene . i don't know. that you are that. more industrial action now ryanair pilots are staging a twenty four hour strike today which has forced the airline to council thirty flights out of ireland the irish airline pilots association is protesting over pay and working conditions the strike only affects flights between the u.k. and ireland but other unions are preparing to strike in spain portugal and belgium later this month that could affect routes across the continent today marks the first day of industrial action for ryan essence officially recognizing unions in december the united states has a problem with keeping up receipts of foreign direct investment the amount of money

coming into america from overseas plunged thirty two percent to twenty seventeen compared to the year before and the trade route with beijing is making matters worse in a twin attack washington has lashed out of beijing and the world trade organization saying china's trade policies are too big for the w t o to tackle. some countries say china is raking in all the benefits of free trade but preventing its partners from enjoying the benefits to be had from asia's largest economy. and a world trade organization conference the chinese delegation try to convince them otherwise. we have significant no out import tariffs voluntarily and continuous five am to off twenty seventeen import duties on over my hundred ten for mines had to be reduced with the trait weighted average tariff rate forty to two point four percent while china is facing overwhelming
8:17 pm
interest from foreign companies keen to invest fellow w t o member the united states is experiencing less enthusiasm from china's business community that's partly because beijing has put the brakes on big corporate ventures abroad and once the cash to stay at home and donald trump's hostile trade policies have also taken their toll. for years chinese companies pumped increasing amounts of money into the us true foreign direct investments these peaked at more than twenty six billion dollars during the second half of twenty sixteen but increasing tensions between the two countries since trump became president in early twenty seventeen have caused a dramatic drop in such investments. no one knows what the long term consequences may be for what still the world's number one economy china however is certainly

waiting in the wings. the dreams of global bike sharing startup. of turned into a nightmare it's filed for bankruptcy in singapore and left tens of thousands of bicycles apparently stranded the company says it still wants to continue doing business but problems with its app mean many of the bikes condie to be located in cities around the world to be littered with millions of the bicycles mostly from chinese own thumb thumbs like obama and its rival ofo. now where does your dates go when you die that's what a german court is out to decide it's an issue that many people around the world are grappling with daniela germany's highest court now has ordered facebook to give the parents of a deceased user access to her data the couple had been fighting for years to find out the cause of their fifteen year old daughter's death hoping that her facebook
8:19 pm
account would give them some clues. almost six years ago at teenage girls run over by an underground train in berlin whether it was suicide or a tragic accidental still unknown the parents stayed at threat to get access to a facebook page to find out if the messages provided any clues although they have to log in code for said was blocked as facebook had already memory allies to account after facebook refused to grant them access the parents went to first case and twenty fifteen only for another court to overturn the ruling on the grounds that opening the account would compromise the privacy as to chino's just contacts. in the latest verdict the federal court ruled that the parents can inherit daughter's facebook accounts. so they have an. analogue documents like diaries and personal letters are readily passed on us from an inheritance point of view there's no reason to treat digital content differently the guitar. on us to ponder. until
8:20 pm
now a liar sent activists advise people to make their own arrangements until such time that there was a final ruling catacombs or three if i fundamentally advise people to take care of their estate one way to do that is by issuing a letter of authorisation which can include how digital data is dealt with in case of death. with nothing thank you designate someone you trust and ideally give them power of attorney. to form up to. so it is imparted to take care of one's duty to legacy but not everyone is aware of that and they obviously so we're not going to i haven't thought about what happens to it when i die. or photos are also digital inheritance i now print them off for my daughter and put them into a little money talks on the heels of tennis i will and it's really sort of us old enough to think about it year after so not at all no. really just him it's
8:21 pm
a somewhat different. topic because i'm personally affected right now since someone i know died in the question came up what happens to their facebook account of his book. maybe. two that he did it didn't. have a photo but. the federal court's decision could now said to president for how do you need deals with the ditch to legacy in the future. and well you know our group or from to use the social media desk is here to talk more about this landmark ruling and facebook's policy when it comes to our digital inheritance so well good to see you what happens currently when with our facebook accounts when we pass away well assuming you haven't done anything for yourself i use to live next of kin have some options facebook provides a form that you can see here you can opt to close the account you have the ability
8:22 pm
to prove that the person is dead and that you have the legal ability to act in that person's stead the more common option though is of course to memorialize the account that keeps the account visible for anyone that is facebook friends who already have access to your profile this allows friends and loved ones to leave condolence messages and share memories of that person so your facebook profile becomes something like a digital memorial to you after you're gone but of course memorialization doesn't happen automatically of course you have to inform facebook that the user has died and the thing is just about anyone can make that request that memorialization request and once the profiles are memorialized it can't be logged into and so that's what happened to this girl's the c's girls the parents that's correct the the someone had already made a moral suasion request for the parents to access the account and the parents have the password for the daughter's account because that was their stipulation for letting the daughter have the facebook how in the first place and it still didn't
8:23 pm
matter the account was memorialize. it was locked and they were locked out of the account so it's often memorialized by what facebook calls a legacy contact this is someone that you as the user before you die to make a facebook friend a legacy contact this is sort of like a power of attorney on facebook they can do things like pin a message to your profile respond to friend requests update profile and cover photos and request the accounts removal but the legacy contact can't log into the account so even here access is limited so what's the what's the fallout the implications of this for you know i mean if this is something of a one of a kind first of its kind ruling before this national laws social media platforms have taken rather ad hoc approach to what to do with one's digital inheritance but it's largely a gray zone and we see that we're guarding us where you're using facebook the default setting is of course to keep people from accessing your profile as a security measure we have to remember how important this issue is becoming because
8:24 pm
it's estimated that eight thousand facebook users every day die which means they maybe one day more dead facebook users than a live facebook users so what happens in your digital life is becoming ever more important after your death and this verdict of course only applies here in germany only here i hate injuries or elsewhere you've got to go into your privacy settings and make sure things that are you have got to do it yourself or if you've already died loved ones really have very few other options but to sue for their rights as these parents have done and have won in this instance in germany right away when i grew cross thank you so very much thanks a lot. all right now to austria where the ears interior ministers have been meeting to try and hammer out a common plan to manage migration the ministers are meeting in the austrian city of in spoke said they wanted to strengthen the blocks external borders and combat people smuggling austria's interior minister is pushing for a hard line approach together with his german counterpart and italy's interior minister in the meantime it seems that the arrival of

8:32 pm
i think that in this number of ten actually in the richest of them in all of us i just have to be so clashes between these this movement and the machine it's got people we also know that a lot of the mood moved more exhausted to include the majority or have actually thought of contending for i don't know why it is that i was so significant. significant because of the strategic and symbolic importance in the early months of two thousand and eleven just as well. in by many as being abdul even the whole. thing talked to you know to go in july and august block in tunisia it was the doctor by profession just a teenager's alleged plot to get people to and that he knows that this led to huge protests in the streets and i'm not
8:33 pm
a legal scene in the beginning of this long to the end goal because the regime conducted a crackdown and you've seen what's happened since then so that doesn't look like you lost really because jordan has a call to vote in georgia and you know the state withdrew i have to stop the rebel group the best of america that they will not be providing it is simple to those so where what does this mean for the future of syria. about it will not i can be like out of the team groping yet not one last of the day actually that is going to be going to tend not to happen we should be fucking quickly in all likelihood will what is it c.n.n. is today and then it is the show the great i think they want it that and that i. did it because a lot of this all of this family is well who is that they should be sacked that their leaders they got to see what the international community done and they did
8:34 pm
not rush to the top of the tax in a second if anyone was thinking that they were going to do political consideration that may not be in the number of a winning he's got major box office country that had little support of the continuation with the artist on. what had been cleaned up remember that the dayton job is not often enough to make up. the bottom. line is the decision but substantive judea and then because it is a lot about results they have gotten above water they watch it again in the hours and make it in and not up and going and the manage to see it done english an audition and analysis that ok we don't want to be imposed on them as well as the full adult of this blog not that the gist of what how did you learn. expressions in the men's of his blood all the water all novices line including guys
8:35 pm
who do a lot of cycling i ask you just where that will be peaceful all with a clear approachable on trial for our reporting from beirut lebanon thank you so very much. well now to pakistan where the long battle for women's rights will take another step forward in this month's election for the first time some female participation at least will be needed for the results to count because constituencies with a female voter turnout of less than ten percent risk having their results nala fide but how many men will actually allow their wives and daughters to vote in a ballot on july twenty fifth remains to be seen. these women are considering a daring move casting their ballot they've never been allowed to men for morry pour their village in central pakistan banned women from voting almost as soon as the country gained independence in one thousand forty seven things are changing slowly
8:36 pm
for the general election taking place at the end of the month pakistan's election commission has said it will invalidate results from constituencies where female turnout is less than ten percent but it's no guarantee for women to vote safely the new rule runs into old tradition yagi. problem the main problem here is that women are prevented from casting their ballots. the men make it an issue of honor that's why they don't allow their women to cast votes they perhaps think that women are stupid. so many generations of women have been denied a vote here it's become normal not too many say they want to vote but few want to be the first to see a ta they did ignoring the taboo and threats of violence in two thousand and fifteen local elections. all day long is he warning that all the women don't cast their votes in this village because they have no support from their families. why
8:37 pm
they see if their families permit them they will vote. no they won't. i cast my vote to break this cultural shit action. amenities even though thinking and talking. and all nearly ten million more women have registered to vote for this year's general election than the last one in two thousand and thirteen for them to actually be able to pakistani law will need to overrule patriarchal tradition. now a public transport is something that we take for granted here in europe and all nigeria is doing some catching up daniel asylum is a mammoth project as well africa's foss is growing city has just opened a new light rail network system in nigeria's capital a budget was one of president mohamed biharis key campaign promises but the project also shows how chinese firms a muscling in where europeans and americans have neglected to tread it's hoped that
8:38 pm
the new rail network will ease a boot just notorious traffic a budget was declared nigeria's capital four decades ago and since then the city's record population growth has outstripped infrastructure and the city is regularly in gridlock a budget depends on its airport to link it with the country's economic capital luckless eight hundred kilometers away nigeria's government hopes the trains will make travel in and out of the city easier. it's also limited to the airports so people want to get to the airport so this is really the message to do is reduce travel times. it should also ease the movement of people living in the blue just satellite communities as planned new industrial estates have built. some areas of the city are expanding by as much as thirty percent per year central of boucher's population more than doubles during the day as people flood in looking for work. it
8:39 pm
. might be down to the walk out and easy as it is to walk using this this is the wall. the light rail system was originally supposed to open four years ago the construction contract was awarded to china civil engineering construction corp but the project was delayed because the nigerian government was unable to pay its share of the costs. more on this now why sadrist is following this for us in a why is just how big is this project as far as nigeria infrastructure projects go . this is quite a big project for nigeria because. it cost nigeria two hundred over eight hundred million dollars each square neck thing about ten communities right now is the first time nigeria is had been mitra law and we didn't decide the county
8:40 pm
so much in it's a phased in with africa this is a project that is going to be moving at least for now we have forty five kilometers of direct line that was commissioned to tag it is to have more than the one douglas commission disheartened by the president is going to move at least five hundred people in clinics in tact and communities in the country ok and it looks fantastic sleek and modern of as we've been seeing but the groundbreaking on this rail line was over ten years ago why has it taken so long when is an issue of counterpart funding you know when nigeria's president took over he went to china where he signed by electron agreement was white house project previous government project and then it went to meet its president will
8:41 pm
come and now said this is what he's going to do he will abandon the project for some time so now we have seen where a government is lifting project not starting new was has assisted in seeing the reality and that was the problem why we had to look to release ok china is not only providing the cash but some of the infrastructure itself why is china doing this so they're providing the cash nigerian government so that the nigerian government can buy from chinese firms is it providing a helping hand or taking advantage of major. western are still having. what i think. i think the sport nigeria is taking advantage of what is happening by chinese coming in to provide these but the chinese come in taken over by so many businesses that they you join
8:42 pm
you don't buy the europeans and i doubt countries that is what we are seeing but for nigeria many nigerians this see it as an advantage but for so many economic analysts they don't see it as such this see it as his tuition why buy the chinese are coming in given soft lawn we just signed it kind of kind of deal with the chinese whereby we. come back. into the new one making it much much easier for people to china and with their businesses. and this is just the first phase so we'll have to wait and see what's next but like citing so far it was address reporting from a budget thank you very much for. that i could always highest court has upheld a claim of multibillion dollar damages against the oil giant chevron that's for decades of rain forest damage the court said indigenous people have a right to compensation for oil spills or contaminated groundwater now despite high
8:43 pm
hopes from those affected the ruling is largely symbolic as chevron no longer operates in. your lengthy legal battle royal giant chevron has been ordered to pay nine point five billion dollars in damages for decades of environmental harm. texaco never again of reference to the company chevron took over in two thousand and one the plaintiffs include indigenous tribes from the amazon rain forest who filed a class action lawsuit twenty five years ago now the highest court in ecuador has ruled in their favor. their home was once a dense jungle us oil company texaco arrived in the one nine hundred sixty s. now not much grows here anymore the affected area is four times larger than new york the soil is contaminated there's oil search everywhere and cancer rates are above average. some see the ruling as largely symbolic and say enforcing the
8:44 pm
