9:01 am
and it will feature a blood moon find out what's behind the spectacular astronomical look that. i'm sumi so much going to good to have you with us in pakistan the official results are in and they show that former cricket star imran khan has won the country's election his party will take one hundred nine seats in the national assembly compared to just sixty three one by its nearest rival khan is still short of an outright majority though so has to seek out allies to form a coalition government that process is likely to take several days. jubilation in islamabad supporters of a monk khan's p.t.i. party took to the streets to celebrate what they deemed to be a change in direction for pakistan as promised by the ellida.
9:02 am
the we will run pakistan like it's never been run before but we will give it the government it has never had before. and we will start with ourselves we will be transparent and clean or sod. his supporters may be celebrating tonight but without an outright majority in one can still has potentially tough coalition talks in front of him and pakistan may still have to wait a while for its new government. a scenario that may prove difficult with the p.p.p. party of the chosen dari and the pm l. led by the brother of disgraced former prime minister now a sheriff claiming it wasn't a fair vote that. this is blatant rigging results based on rigging would lead to it repairable loss we do not accept it we reject it. but it's everyday issues that concern many ordinary pakistanis. main issue is
9:03 am
education system and if a positive change can be made here i am very confident a change will come to pakistan that is what i'm planning on khan has promised a lot to the people of the huge number of votes that people gave him is because he can do what others feel to do for them he should deliver on his promises and he should do a lot for the masses he should deliver now or else his situation will be worse than that of love australia if. by she. a warning that for now at least is drowned out in the euphoria of victory. today he is not only conrad is covering the elections for us in islamabad i spoke to her earlier and asked her to bring us up to date. the big question is what happens today we've got two very important events coming up one is the press conference later on in the day of the electoral observer mission so whether they
9:04 am
indeed call these elections for your fair will have a big impact on what the opposition parties decide to do another thing is a meeting of all the parties except for the p.t. where they discuss what strategy to take and as one of the high ranking peter mullan members told me yesterday all options are on the table meaning they might be able to move belie supporters depending on what they do so a very tense day and it remains to be seen what happens later in the day what about for iran cargo he's promised to tackle issues that are important to the voters but he is the candidate who was a favorite by the military in this vote so how much freedom will we have to do so with the military influence in politics. whether to do things that elected politicians can't touch that's foreign policy and defense policy but that's always been the case in the history of pakistan the one issue that he's was really central in his campaign which was corruption fighting corruption is very much aligned to what the military wants to see the military says there's too much
9:05 am
corruption in the country they want that stamp out so he's aligned bear the other the other big issues like poverty alleviation election the electricity crisis i think he will have a pretty fair and free hands to tackle those issues what do you think are the biggest challenges that he faces as he seeks to take over the reins. well there are huge there's a myriad of domestic challenges including security the economy poverty alleviation but there's also the question of foreign policy the question of will pakistan and the u.s. improve their toys which were broken early old early on in the year when the u.s. suspended aids because of its because it said pakistan continued to support militants in the country and outside of the country there's also the question of pakistan's role with india with afghanistan and of course the question of how much . closer ties with china become so much of domestic and international challenges that the future probably future prime minister among con will have to deal with now
9:06 am
i mean just briefly for cameron kind is also been criticized for making friends with islamic extremists in pakistan what role did this they play in this election. well actually they didn't do well let's hold it was a fear that very hard school islamists might do very well in these elections faced a field of a lot of candidates but a lot of people's relief they didn't do well at school or i did conrad reporting for us from islamabad thank you very much. now to some other stories making news around the world greek authorities have said a deadly wildfire in a coastal resort near athens was started deliberately the minister of public order said there were serious indications of criminal activity concerning arson at least eighty two people were killed in that fire rescuers are still searching for more bodies as residents blame the government for the high death toll saying it lacked an affective disaster plan. cambodia's prime minister hun sen has hailed his
9:07 am
success in eliminating what he called traitors ahead of this weekend's general election he made those comments at a rally in phnom penh on the final day of campaigning the election promises to be an easy victory for one sen after the supreme court dissolved the soul serious opposition party in november. and in poland thousands of protesters took to the streets to rally against a new law that gives the government greater powers over the country's judiciary the law effectively allows the ruling p i ask party to take control of the country's supreme court protesters claim this violates judicial independence polish president signed the measure into law on thursday. that north korea has handed over the remains of american soldiers killed in the korean war which rob raged from one nine hundred fifty to nine hundred fifty three a u.s. aircraft brought the remains to an air base in south korea the handover which coincides with the sixty fifth anniversary of the war's end follows an agreement
9:08 am
reached by north korea's leader kim jong un and us president donald trump at their singapore summit in june. let's get more of the story with workers correspondent josh smith who joins us from south korea's capital seoul where he's covering the story hi josh so sixty five years after the end of the korean war these remains are now being returned to the u.s. so is this then a direct result of the summit in singapore between u.s. president trump and kim jong un. it is the return of u.s. soldiers remains was one of four kind of specific bullet points to two leaders agreed on and of those look that's perhaps the most specific and so it's something that the white house definitely was hoping to show some progress on and it's something that north korea is able to do while not touching perhaps some of the more sensitive issues like its nuclear weapons program and so this is a key area that those charged with looking to make progress on to show that they are trying to work together and president trump is hailed this move as
9:09 am
a great moment how significant is this. it definitely helps him fend off something of a narrative that's been emerging of a lack of progress in the wake of that june summit as you mentioned this is quite an accomplishment something that comes after years of deadlock the last time something like this really happened was back in the nine hundred ninety s. early two thousand and it's something that the obama administration tried to get going again in two thousand and eleven in two thousand and twelve and that fell apart before it even started over disagreements with the north koreans and so this is definitely something that trump has been. praising and we can definitely look forward to him citing this as an accomplishment in the future and josh i think we're going to see further repatriations. that is something that the american certainly want the north koreans are believed to have at least another hundred
9:10 am
fifty or so sets of remains that they believe may be american troops that they could potentially hand over the united states is also interested in perhaps starting joint missions in which american investigators would actually go to north korea and find more soldiers who were left behind there reuters correspondent josh smith is speaking to us from seoul thank you very much. thank you. the u.s. says hundreds of migrant families separated at the border have not been reunited as a court order deadline to return more than two thousand children to their parents expires the trumpet ministrations policy of detaining migrant children separately from their parents has been widely condemned health professionals in the us are sounding the alarm about the potentially long term damage being done to young people at a vulnerable time in their lives. the lucky few reunited after months of
9:11 am
not knowing whether they'd ever see their children again. and for others even this moment soon turned to heartbreak after being separated for so long as some parents said their children didn't even recognize. the difficult reunifications we've seen so far have highlighted just how hard it's going to be to bring these children back together with their families and how much damage has already been done by the trumpet ministrations original policy of taking them away from their parents. dr lucy is one of many pediatricians warning of the damage these separations may have caused already she told me extreme stress from such an experience can result in lifelong health problems the younger they are the more vulnerable they are so we see changes in their stress hormones you see changes in their brain development the long term that also can manifest as mental health illnesses so p.t.s.d. anxiety depression kids who've experienced toxic stress actually have higher risk
9:12 am
of suicide as they get older then the change in the hormones actually causes physical changes in their body so an increased risk of heart disease of diabetes of liver problems increased risk of cancer so why are migrants from central and south america willing to take their chances on exposing their children to this kind of future i think these families would say that they didn't have a choice i have patients a mom who told me that her ten year old son was asked to join a gang and if he didn't that he would be killed have another patient who's a teenage girl who is repeatedly abused and was worried about getting kidnapped and trafficked so on these parents take their kids and other belongings in the middle of the night and they flee they're not thinking that they have a choice now many who thought they'd a skate the worst for a better life in the united states are facing even more trauma. a major international conference on hiv and aids is wrapping up in the netherlands

9:14 am
recently the medicine cost as much as eight hundred euros per month in germany alternatively it could be ordered some illegally as a generic struck a broad recently the price of the medicine fell to fifty cures the reason the manufacturers peyton will soon expire demand is high. as had so few honest prep it took my constant fear away nor only in the bedroom but in everyday life it helped me get emotionally intimate again. before a song every potential partner was also a potential danger and a person said to get far the combination of improved hiv therapy and prep has already produced positive results say supporters of the new treatment. is in yet still under the lens and we are now certain that prep can definitely stop new infections in the u.k. the new infections have dropped significantly and we can see the same thing in san
9:15 am
francisco we can have these successes in germany as well and we therefore you can do it. but the before pill also has its disadvantages doctors say especially if it leads to a decline in the use of condoms the prep. for the high front the prep protects against hiv but it doesn't protect against syphilis are going to rear or other sexually transmitted diseases. teacher use the most difficult to treat and the most severe of these sexually transmitted diseases that's what prep protects against the pap for emmanuelle means freedom freedom from the once life threatening disease called hiv. to sports now in competitive european football was already back under way less than two weeks after the world cup final rb leipzig made light work of swedish club heck in the first leg of their europa league qualifying round new signing matteo squeel was the star scoring
