a home life trapped by the storm one by one a family emerges from the darkness. the more fortunate are already returning home to dorian's destruction the island family's house was flooded everything destroyed all they want now are for to graf's my wife. she said she turned off she said the window not the front door she said i want to drive. this was the scene when the islands made their daring escape clutching their most prized possessions. paradise has been pulverized thousands of homes on abaco island torn apart boats
tossed around as the storm surge locals distraught. because it is everything is gone no buying no stores. no take at least 4 to 5 years to complete only i don't know how long it takes for the rest of this you know nothing at all everything is going to 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 the support of. the assistance of the united states of america for her behalf most time. back at the island family home offers of help pub been pouring into. this. place so many people. i try to help. pick 23 people have offered

a lot of those people you know we're trying to connect them with their families as best as best as we can but rescue efforts at this point they just need billy a lot of them who managed through the storm they're like you know it doesn't make sense rescuing me. we just need the state will get us you will get us more 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 got on the island to date on the salvation that on the allen today were all bombs to tents for us is assisting that. have those items and we have a couple international organizations who are actually met with red tape you know they can't get so they don't know 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 now right now rask youth is still continuing it is
freshly the people who need medical assistance and the clinics they 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. ahead of her 12th visit to china german chancellor i'm going to stress the importance of bilateral relations and cooperation in a phone call with china's premier league. in return least said both countries face common challenges he called for joint efforts deepening mutual understanding and trust and more free trade between the countries. for more let's bring in journalist to mean a mystery i know in beijing hi there so how might respond to pressure from hong kong protesters who are expecting her to address human rights. so angry when merkel will. most certainly bring up the issue of hong kong and
her discussions with chinese premier league. however from what we know so far the german government has advised hong kong protesters to. to seek dialogue would be and find a nonviolent solution so she might just bring a message of. peace and support so she might not be as. supportive of. the protesters cause as they would wish for example. josh. groban open letter addressed to lurk all in the bill newspaper right before her departure for china seeking her support and the government said doesn't as a general rule. answer open letter so she might have a moderate position or. did it's always tricky these kinds of state visits but
maybe even trickier now is with this trade war going on with the u.s. how might that affect bilateral relations between germany and china. so 2 the train is probably going to be the main issue to be discussed during the state visit this official visit. and that's because both china and germany are currently feeling the impact of the trade war between the u.s. and china the chinese economy is slowing the german economy is slowing it might even enter a recession in the following months so both beijing and sermon are looking for solutions that would alleviate this impact that the trailer has most specifically they're discussing this you would china investment agreement that could. among some of the blocks that. the 2 sides out there you have in union and china are currently facing well when it comes to. investment the rest buckel investment
all right mr otto in beijing thank you very much for your insights chris thank you to the united kingdom now where boris johnson is digging in the british prime minister is insisting the u.k. leave the european union by october 31st he'd rather quote be dead in a ditch than ask the e.u. for another extension for now the country's drama has become a family one with his brother joe resigning from his government 1st day saying he's leaving politics for good mr johnson had been a campaigner for the u.k. to remain in the e.u. and with parliament seeking to block a no deal brett said things look bad for the committed pro bracks a prime minister but many british voters are with him in wanting to get out.
the pro europeans are out in force and they are a choice and. for the moment it looks like the prime minister needs to bow to their will but in a sea of blue you flags outside parliament read prolife signs show that greg city is too are fighting for that cause susan nicholson has a retired teacher for yorkshire she has never protested before in her life but now she fears that britain might not leave the e.u. after all where the silent majority we don't demonstrate we've heard to me didn't expect people to ignore our so that's been a bit of a surprise for us but what hoping for a general election because then we convert again and we can get rid of the remain m.p.'s who have blocked our leaving and we can have a proper government that gets us out of the. first susan and other great city is leaving the e.u. is more important than anything else they regard grossness as undemocratic and anything short of leaving on the 31st of october as
a betrayal of democracy. opinion polls are showing that most people have voted leave in the referendum still want this to be seen through almost at any cost and even with out agreement with the e.u. short term consequences like food shortages rising inflation even job losses don't seem to scare them. but pro e.u. m.p.'s like barrow hobhouse i determined not to let it come to this it's happy to prevent leaving without a deal and then it should all go back to the people for another referendum people said for a long time of course we're going to have a deal of course is the easiest thing in history everything has turned out entirely different from what was promised in 2016 so more than 3 years on definitely democracy has to be practiced and the people have to be asked again. day after day susan nicholson comes to paula meant to tell a piece that she and her fellow brit city is have not changed their minds but i
think it would be sensible and mature to agree a mutually beneficial trade deal with the unfortunately that isn't going to happen at the moment what they're doing is they using no deal as a means of continually delaying our departure so that they can then say oh well there's no mandate for a. remain as and brett city is both claiming to be the true defenders of democracy and as each side becomes ever more entrenched there is no compromise in sight of the. 2 of europe's most talented football teams and long time rivals face off friday evening in vieni standout match of euro qualifiers germany is hosting the netherlands in homburg. germany coach has played up his young teams closeness ahead of their match with the netherlands who is byron's me on a direct score out injured has been
a break in the chain. this is shocking but by the human mind is a real shame. an a from experience when there was a bit of a break from the team in 2010 that they need to play with move or less the same starting line up. over $810.00 or 12 much is. without too many changes that he phoenix for and the only gives. him and seems to have no problem switching up his young size and his 10 matches in charge he's never named the same lineup in 2 consent he sees games like germany the netherlands also emerging from a difficult patch there's a to germany a sometimes stronger and sometimes weaker and that also has to do with the quality of the rival that little going to call the guys from dictators some of these 2 great rivals should find out for top spots in group c. germany have the upper hand thanks to a 32 win earlier this year and outs to damn the last time they lost at home to the
