just announce that he was quitting the german site he heavily criticized german football association president for negative comments on islam and multi-culturalism . a photo of. their meeting in may the blue touch paper on a debate that has refused to die down in germany with being accused of helping one campaign for an upcoming election there's also talked only but football. team here on the left was also at the meeting and explained his decision soon after . preferred to remain silent which only brought him more criticism. if you're the kind i don't think any footballer should have their photo taken with any authority in rulers whether with vladimir putin as the tomatillos did or with the one like you do on an israel there are enough democratic politicians to be photographed webb could get. you can be missing a position lesson coming after germany's exit at the world cup group stage the

foreigner the immigrant when louis and many germans with an immigrant background feel this way it's almost like that identity politics but you don't feel like you have a good enough view of a german enough and that's also not forget that gringo he is a former politician and in the past he has made negative and quite a few controversial comments about multiculturalism in and some in germany and it was all just feels a man of with his sort of reuse should not be in a position of power so most it is it was no longer going to play for the german team what does this mean for german football how big of a star has he been a huge i mean people also can't forget that there is a. it is a model of integration he won numerous awards in germany he was the go to guy and i think the bigger question now is what sort of impact will this have on future generations of germans with a migrant background because a lot of them might be now saying hey should really opt you know playing for germany or should i not because what is it if you look at the way the entire if you look at the way somebody a star like the way he's been treated somebody who is like
a fall from grace it's like this is the way he had to end his career and i think this would also be really bad for the talent pool in germany if a lot of germans with an immigrant background decide not to opt to pay for germany or italy in her talking from did of you sports thank you very much. and the political fallout from steele's decision is being felt in turkey as well let's bring in dorian jones who's standing by in istanbul hi dorian what is the reaction been there to. what we've heard some tough words from some of the turkish ministers abdulhamid of the justice minister is said that mr do still have scored a beautiful goal against the virus of fascism while at the same time we've heard from the sports minister mehmet polo saying we stand in solidarity with. the turkish president of the. earth one has not said anything he's on the trip to africa at the moment but his spokesman
a very powerful figure within the turkish politics was more restrained things have pitied those who support the claim to support tolerance multiculturalism have acted in such a way so it does seem quite restrained in this response in the past. and very tough language against berlin accusing them of acting like nazis we've heard none of that and the reason why is trying to rebuild relations with europe and in particular berlin last week berlin lift some very painful sanctions and on course aware that the precarious nature of the turks you're calling me it doesn't want a major bus stop with europe particularly in the international financial markets very nervous about. corresponding dorie jones for us in istanbul thank you dorian. now some other stories making headlines around the world police say two people are dead and thirteen more wounded after a mass shooting in downtown toronto the gunman opened fire in the city's greektown neighborhood on sunday night before being killed in a shootout with police a young girl remains in critical condition police say it is too early to tell

now lawmakers in cuba have approved a draft constitution that supporters say will modernize the nation while the leading political force remains a communist party the new document has removed the aim of building a communist society the draft constitution also recognizes private property and could even open the way to same sex marriage here's more broad put on the net. on historic reform the cuban parliament approves the first update of its constitution since one thousand nine hundred seventy six. we confirm that we have a draft constitution and that after popular consultation and the referendum will strengthen the unity of cubans regarding the revolution in. the new constitution allows for a controlled opening up the few commie the party for reform is strong the recognition of private property rights. and the open we already have here paid employment and
private property ownership we have to recognize this objectively this is the reality we have to accept and regulate. the goal is to develop a form of socialism that is no longer strictly communist other constitutional reforms include limiting the president to two terms creating a prime minister post and addressing l g b t discrimination which is long been systemic in cuba. but that has been the one of the only cause the making changes that are important for the country given the historic moment we're going through it's been sixty years since the revolution change is necessary. yeah it was time to do it we're proud that it's being done. now it's up to the cuban people to vote on the new constitution a referendum will be held in november. british prime minister theresa may is making another attempt to win over her cabinet to her vision for brags that she's called
her ministers together today for a special round of talks economic growth and trade post breaks that are expected to top the agenda but britain's divorce from the european union will also have a profound impact on thousands living outside of europe the small caribbean island of anguish is one of fourteen british overseas territories residents there say they didn't have a say in the bronx and felt a some on the island now see the result as a chance to push for independence from london as part of our road to break that series. visited angola to gauge the mood. as ship docking in britain six thousand five hundred kilometers away from the british mainland we're in one gorilla one of britain six overseas territories in the caribbean people here have to import nearly everything even their drinking water and this port is their life and so flying. is not only because this is the
only board so. if for whatever reason this port closes in on. angola and itself took my clothes no. most of the goods come in via the e.u. or more precisely from a port just fifteen minutes away on the french island off some of. the neighboring islands have close ties but no breaks it is threatening their relationship. we find to be insulting because it will be affected directly angola someone who bought i mean our soft water for years. and we are concerned that you know that doesn't present a situation by the president in the negative so local radio host a.j. hammer is angry that and will lead to not have a say or bracks said since residents could not vote will break that affect us he and some fifteen thousand other islanders will lose their passports should london come up short and it's been to secure
a good break sit deal and will its residents worry that they will be among the biggest losers and will and should have had an a chance to participate in the backseat and that no other people should decide on going on state but then britain has been. increasing home micro-managing which i think is it fair to us. that mean we have no say because if you take the economy of angle and you take the budget of angle it has to be approved by england so we are just puppets in the end the whole thing yet another ways britain. is less involved since hurricane devastated last september many homes still in ruins the state's coffers are empty and the planned reconstruction is funded by the e.u. it is also agreed last largest provider of development aid with much of the money earmarked for you kate. after a break said it is unclear whether london will step in to help. with
a kingdom i would say ninety percent of the people that i talk to who are british so have a clue that it is a place called angle so you know i really think we have a i don't think they'll be big on the agenda of the british government. as one of the issues that they speak about and we don't have the quote your frustration our exit has reached the point where the worst something really ends are calling for independence from britain d.j. hammer is for it. you'll be able to fend for yourselves because the british government is doing well and that's there's no i'm not sure i'm not sure we're getting on you know a free. most and williams would have voted to stay in the e.u. the islands depends on close ties with its e.u. neighbors in the caribbean just why many here would rather be a part of the european union than of britain in the way. that report is part of our special series road to bricks and our correspondents are
