10:33 pm
a shadow of what it was just a few days ago when it became a category 5 storm in the atlantic and then slammed into the bahamas stalling there for almost 2 days the devastation so great authorities say it will take a generation to recover residents say the impact of the storm is so deep they are now referring to life in the bahamas dorian and post during the seemingly impossible task of providing aid shelter and food to everyone in need has begun along with efforts to rescue the wives dorrian did not wash away. in the heart of the hurricane volunteer rescuers struggle to find what they're looking for but they dangling from the attic of a home life trapped by the storm one by one a family imagines from the darkness.
10:34 pm
the more fortunate are already returning home to dorian's destruction. the island family's house was flooded everything destroyed all they want a photograph my wife. she said she turned off she said the window not the front door she said fun drive. this was the scene when the island's made their daring escape clutching their most prized possessions. paradise has been pulverized thousands of homes on abaco island torn apart tossed around as the storm surge locals destroy. my island and is everything is gone. no buying no stores. no take at least 4 to 5
10:35 pm
years to complete only moksha but i don't know how long it takes for the rest of the island but in this you know nothing at all everything is going to just body. for those left behind putting the bahamas back together is expected to cost billions and the government says allies have promised to pay chain i spoke with president donald trump who has expressed their support. for the assistance of the united states of america for the bahamas and time. back at the island family home offers of help been pouring into. it so. great so many people. actually no big 23 people have offered so much. but. you know we're all wearing the same clothes that we escape is how soon. so many. so it's really
10:36 pm
good to get support. you can rebuild a new 2 that after surviving the 2nd strongest hurricane on record he and his family a lucky to be a life horrible stories there for more on the situation in the bahamas i'm joined now by journalist kimberly mullins she is in freeport on grand bahama it's good to see you kimberly you know there are reports of people people in the bahamas saying that when you walk outside anywhere and everywhere you can smell death in the air. what are you hearing i mean it's just unimaginable what the reports are and harry was there with you i with that ice now what did you smell and sunny. not in my area per se but yesterday as they traverse throughout the out and i. was like what is that i'm somebody who works in
10:37 pm
a funeral home so i have this like it's pretty familiar and i don't like it but at the same time we can't quickly jump to conclusions because there are a lot of animals on the humane society even suffered tremendously a lot of animals some are some are asking that there's an art. you know i know people whose who had to say are dogs lapped and we can only hope and then i say hey my backyard didn't make it so there's it's a putrid and i could describe it it's future. and you know there have been images of people emerging from homes that you know people who hadn't been seen for days so there's still hope out there that missing people can be found what do you hear what's the latest on rescue attempts. i'm not sure about
10:38 pm
the past few times at this point you know there's still chorus canvassing the air police officers and knocking on persons door is the you know a lot of people of missing persons reports which are with supposed to do at this point now that he can actually get to the police station because that is under water during that storm so that our command center and me mum could not work properly here in the bahamas which is the national emergency management agency so a lot of those people you know we're trying to connect them and their families as best as best as we can but rescue efforts at this point they just need really a lot of them who able to manage through this or they're like you know it doesn't make sense rescuing me. we just need the state would get us you would get us in water let's just clean up we have we have our mail boat which is coming in from the capital which are transporting people out of the island as long as also they are bringing bringing us some food some water some supplies red cross tide on the island to date on the salvation that and the allen today are all bombs to dance for
10:39 pm
us is assisting with. those items and we have a couple international organizations who are actually met with red tape you know they can't get in and out of the allens right now because the government only want to work for the few organizations so you know there's a lot of a lot of things going up and down right now rask youth is still continuing it is fashioned that people who need medical assistance plan explained don't have water because we know we don't have water on the island which is a big problem so the clinics the hospital they need water clean water. and. the things that are needed right now are they getting through or if you just said or we're talking about rigged or really blocking things were. really needed. what they're doing what the government is doing is taxing. people who put together
10:40 pm
a private ad relief efforts so if they don't want to recognize you as help it in there are certain list of charities organizations they're actually telling you hey you have to pay your do you have to pay your taxes and at a time like this so far we've also heard that the government has put in a 90 big digits the order which is that if you can prove a your house is damage and you want to bring its own as you can in terms of the a plane or or a boat you have 90 days 90 days with people who've lost everything now you know they can sign a passport. and only are met with that but before we run out of time to move just ask you the fact that you were able to talk tonight obviously means that some of the telecommunications network is is working i mean what's the state of that is everyone able to reach the people that they want to reach and all the islands and that that's the most unfortunate part so i'll explain it like this quickly i have towers for this for my home was not compromised and one of the
10:41 pm
little one of the few areas that experience letting this storm happen in 3 days is we had water wind and we had. and i say water i mean flooding and we had rain of course we had to brave the rains i had powers because we have an industrial generator in this home. so i had service because i have a portable wife i had advice from a live we have 2 telecommunications company. com companies one of them failed one of them stayed up that's the only way some of people were able to be rescued others couldn't even get a message out. from port. tonight giving us the latest on the situation there in the orleans from where we appreciate your time and your insights so you can stay safe. and you take care. well coming up later on the day blood is apparently not thicker than bright said the british
10:42 pm
prime minister's own brother today quit parliament and the cabinet but not even rumors of a family feud have changed boris johnson stance on briggs it can you make a promise today to the british public that you will not go back to brussels and ask for another delay to back that yes and so young and would you rather be dead in a ditch. monstrous despicable that is how a judge in germany today described it to child sex abusers as they were sentenced to prison for sexually molesting more than 30 children over 2 decades some of their victims were just toddlers the sex crimes took place at a campsite near the town of detmold in north western germany police there are being criticized for failing to intervene soon. sivia sexual abuse of children and more than $200.00 cases both under mariel as were found guilty of abusing more than 30
10:43 pm
children the main victim and own 8 year old foster child the sentences are close to the maximum penalty in germany but it's likely the 2 men will never be fully released one of the defense lawyers except at the verdict. plots and everything in the end it's 13 years plus preventative detention and that was to be expected i've stated at other times if not in this case when for been done for years the authorities received tips about the potential pedophilia of the main suspect it was only in october last year that one of the girls' mothers reported the crimes to the police that happened at the campsite where he lived the trial considered one of the biggest cases of sexual abuse in germany cost outrage and raised many questions including how andrea sui was allowed to foster a child when he was unemployed and living at a campground and despite the fact that he had been under suspicion of sexual
10:44 pm
assault the police also came in for criticism after evidence a suitcase full of d.v.d.'s with child pornography and abuse disappeared after the men were arrested it is a protest like this verdict should not mean that the whole story is now all over and done with yes we have got to they did it to a principal accused the 2 main perpetrators who did this to the children themselves in the background there are people who could have helped save many children from these experiences one can even though the 2 men have been sentenced to 12 and 13 years the court labored them both dangerous offenders meaning they can be held indefinitely past this sentences. well the british government says it will comply with a lol delaying brights if the legislation passes parliament and that legislation is expected to become law next monday today prime minister boris johnson suffered yet
10:45 pm
another major breaks that loss and this one was personal his own brother today joe johnson who campaigned for britain to remain in the european union during the 26000 referendum when he announced that he is leaving the conservative party and stepping down as education minister in his brother's cabinet. brothers yes but brothers in breaks no wednesday a defiant johnson repeated his montreal that britain must leave the european union on october the 31st and that a general election is needed to renu the brics it mandy. well i can say and i hate to mike brooks i don't want to go on about the one i don't i don't want an election i don't i don't want to lecture to but frankly i can't see any other way the only way to get this thing done to get this thing moving is to make that decision do you want this government to take us out
10:46 pm
a little table with 31st or do you want jamie colby in a live apology go to that crucial summit in brussels little table the 17th effectively hand over control to these are and that was the british prime minister there to talk about europe germany and britain and i'm joined here at the big table tonight by met in our very he's a member of the german parliament the boom this talk for the social democrats see also sits on the bonus talk committee for european union affairs where brics it course continues to dominate the agenda it's good to have you back on the show i want to ask you there were reports late last night after the house of commons passed a bill to request another extension to break said that the european union may not be willing to grant another extension i mean can you confirm anything tonight is the us is the e.u. now less likely to say yes to a delay. well thanks for having me again i'm not a spokesperson for the european union i think if the domestic policy in politics in
10:47 pm
the u.k. would lead to something to wanting a delay. 2 of january probably some people would listen to that very carefully is that the feeling you get even even in the german parliament that there is a willingness to in of say yes yes again well at this point we don't even know what's going to happen because the prime minister obviously it's difficult to foresee what's his next action is but if we do have the choice in the european union as between no deal scenario at the end of next month or a delay that would make it possible for the british parliament to have more time due to take action then i would suggest to give another 3 months the u.k. prime minister has repeatedly said that his brags it minister is curing with the new suggestions on help to solve for example the irish back start problem solutions
10:48 pm
to do this impasse now michel barnier the e.u.'s breaks it man says he hasn't seen any plans we've also been told that the u.k. prime minister says that most of the parliaments in the major e.u. countries have been given these plans have you seen any plans from boris johnson no i haven't and there aren't any there is no invisible border that would fit with the well the criteria of the single market it is impossible we have been talking about this for years now there is nothing new just the prime minister's now the prime minister is now in what does it do the to the the trust in the good she ations when the prime minister says there are plans out there and yet you know that that's not true well to be quite frank i be glad if we would have some sort of bargaining situation but. now we don't even know whether democracy as we know it in westminster will work next week so let's wait for that and after that i think there
10:49 pm
will be very pragmatic talks about anything but if the prime minister is seriously willing to to lead his country in a new constitutional crisis it be a totally different taste do you believe that mr binnie that there would be a willingness within within germany and also within the e.u. to reopen negotiations even a little bit negotiation cell. and even if there was a willingness this is a consensus between 27 countries i think you shouldn't overestimate it the deal we're having now with obviously was made last year on this one is. it is difficult to difficult to think of an alternative to do that and it is a good compromise to compromise towards the british position more than to the european position there are reports that boris johnson wants to change the u.k.'s defense pledges in the current bragg's it deal in other words we're hearing from
10:50 pm
london that the prime minister wants to create leverage in other words to threaten that the u.k. will not cooperate with the e.u. in security if it doesn't get in a vis the you know an answer to the backstop in ireland for example and you heard anything no i haven't heard anything and let's see whether this prime minister is still prime minister at the end of next month it's it's super difficult to to to go in theory of all the alternatives if we don't even know whether this prime minister would act in accordance with some something that will be passed by the british parliament tomorrow. that's that's a serious stuff now and you're watching it like like the rest of us what's going on right now in london we know that word johnson is going to call for early elections again next monday and there are predictions that parliament will say yes to that and that he could maybe win elections in october do you see that happening i mean i
10:51 pm
saw on your facebook page today you said it was something is populist politics what we're seeing right now in london do you think that we're going to be dealing with a prime minister boris johnson come october 31st in their early elections in the united kingdom by the rules and laws of the united and the constitution of the united kingdom's and mr johnson would win the tory party would win this election he would stay in downing street number 10 that's fine that's ok what would be a serious crisis is if he would even if next week obviously by a majority of his of his office parliament. in order to to extend. the deadline of the of the end of october and he's not. not act accordingly then we have a super serious problem. one final question you're also the spokesperson for your party's parliamentary group on u.s. and north american relations and you were just in the united states for several
10:52 pm
weeks the u.s. vice president has been visiting ireland and he caused a little bit of controversy by saying that the united states stands completely behind boris johnson's breaks it policy what does that do to germany and the e.u. use stance on rights when they see the u.s. vice president standing in ireland saying we're for brakes it boris johnson style well the government of the united states is a problem only in this case but also in other on other occasions but there are members of congress on the democrat side also on the republican side that see it very very seriously and i would say much more realistic than the missed ration at this point and they see the problems of a new border again coming up between north island in the republic of ireland and being really serious about not having letting that happen so you're not worried about u.s. interference in the port in the budget process i am because they are interfering all the time but i think it's not the u.s. position generally there are other voices in the united states as well all right
10:53 pm
verdi member of the german parliament the bundestag with the social democrats as always we appreciate you taking the time to start with us thank you thanks for having me. all the rooster for the cock is the national symbol of france so you'll understand why the nation let out a collective cock a doodle doo today after a judge handed down his decision on maurice the rooster or reese's owner was sued by her neighbors who claim that the roosters early morning crows were tense amount to noise pollution and in a game of legal chicken the plaintiff and the defendant faced off in court where today the judge ruled that maurice the village cock can continue to crow as he likes in france tonight it is clear once again he really rules the roost. this is maurice quite possibly now france's most famous rooster while he was at home having a pretty regular day his own kareen 1st saw was at court getting the good news in
10:54 pm
the movies was officially off the hook. thank the court's ruling means the rooster can continue to cock a doodle doo at the crack of dawn. said she had a hunch she would win the case but she was careful not to get too cocky. she moved . i was amazed because even though i expected a positive answer i was a little scared anyway and i am telling myself at least i haven't done it for nothing it was a long story i fought for over 2 years and now you have to move on you know that's what she said yeah yeah i'm the lawyer representing timor case was equally satisfied with the court's ruling he said it was a rare piece of common sense. i think it will strengthen local elected officials
10:55 pm
and the courts because today people acting in bad faith well they will have to think twice before they go to their mayor to ask them to solve a case before they go to court colleen 1st so has lived on the small island of all the home of france's atlantica coast for 35 years 2 years ago her new neighbors were so upset with mohit as a 5 am morning call they decided to sue oh yeah the case struck a nerve with many attracting support locally and from abroad. other cocoa news came to court and support and more than 120000 people signed a petition urging authorities to leave more police alone. colvin 1st so says she hopes her case will spark a wider debate in french society. just that i hope my story will make some people talk a lot and that it will make people think you have to stop complaining about nothing like it's have been flashing and what this is because most cases not complaining in
10:56 pm
