a controversial extradition bill that have since widened to demand free elections in the specially administered territory. correspondent ceri chan is in hong kong and she joins us now for the latest so cherri we understand you are near the shopping mall where those clashes have been taking place what have you been seeing. saw there are a lot of tough confrontations between whole police supporters and pro-democracy protesters and 1st of all they were all in the shopping mall and then they had some confrontations with each other and then clashes broke out and then riot police arrived and they actually have arrest of social pro-democracy protests. cherry we have been seeing clashes between the pro-democracy protesters and police over the last several weeks but now these violent clashes between pro-democracy protesters
4:05 pm
and prob asia supporters seems to be a new escalation isn't. actually this is not really a new escalation confrontation and conflicts between the 2 groups have always exist but then they don't always appear in the same location so we don't see a lot of pictures where they clash with each other or have arguments but today. because the pro-democracy protesters they knew that this probe a change supporters would be in this shopping mall so they planned to come here to have concept protest and show their support for the protesters and that's why the 2 groups meets here today and clashes broke out. while the pro-democracy protesters had said that they intended to keep the demonstrations peaceful so what sparked the violence. right
4:06 pm
so. they have always plans that they have to be peaceful but then that but that whenever they see a probate takes a process is in the boat that they were clashing with each other. because when they separate if o.p.'s. and that. that. thank you thank you thank you thank you so you can see that that approach pro-democracy protests as they are really trying to get international attention. well cherry yes indeed and where you are is not the only location where protests will be taking place in hong kong what else is going on in the city today. today there are several of the front protests in different shopping malls in different districts they are also shopping protests in the parks as well but
4:07 pm
actually at during this week a the biggest protests is tomorrow the sunday protest actually yesterday when we were on the street with the protests as we also hear them calling everyone to join the protest tomorrow although the protests have been banned tomorrow by the police but then these protests as they say they still said that they will go on the streets anyway. that was cherry chant reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much. because i'm bob way now where tens of thousands of people have gathered for the state funeral of former leader robert mugabe ceremony in the capital harare is being held at the national sports stadium which can seat up to 60000 people many current and former african leaders are in attendance gobby ruled is the bob way for 37 years after becoming the country's 1st leader following white minority rule he was ousted by his own military in 2017 and
4:08 pm
died in a singapore hospital last week at the age of 95. new delhi correspondent dan creation is standing by at the stadium in harare where the state funeral is being held today in tell us what's happening right now. with thousands of people are celebrating right now inside. the stadium celebrating the life of former president robert mugabe about 10 african heads of states also here but it's also another side of the story because the stadium is basically house empty and this shows that a lot of zimbabweans are rather indifferent about what is happening if you go to the streets of our of the capital here life goes on as normal and it's a lot of indifference. but then there is have been then been in dispute over where exactly robert mugabe's remains would be laid to rest how was that ultimately resolved. so it was supposed to lay to rest at the
4:09 pm
hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protest of they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil gabo will finally be buried what that shows is a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when mugabe was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity and to pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the elections even advised to support us not to vote for the governing party so this whole dispute about whether god will be laid to rest we can these shows a good division that you can that is still visible here in zimbabwe or around the ruling party we mentioned already there are many people paying tribute to one copy
4:10 pm
others are just staying away he was of course of very controversial figure so what kind of legacy does he mean. well absolutely on the one hand he is seen as a liberation hero somebody who fought the white minority rule but then there's also this other side of the story of robert mugabe who basically run down this country in the almost 40 years of his presidency the economy went completely down it is still struggling a quarter of zimbabweans left the country because of this and of course we also still must remember the human rights abuses that were committed on the his watch i'm sitting in harare thank you. let's get a check now of some of the other stories making news around the world. yemen based who the rebels have claimed responsibility for drone attacks on 2 key oil facilities in eastern saudi arabia the saudi interior ministry says huge fires at

a single government that kept its promises as you go to war you've told the coming . under stuns the frustration many to museums are disappointed with politics. now more than ever the economic crisis is causing problems for people and some blame democracy. several presidential candidates are openly in favor of a return to authoritarian rule china's is the only country that introduced a parliamentary system after the arab spring 9 years ago democracy is now at stake that's why how joe wants to fight for it and i want to go by and. what i'm going to talk to a lot of young people and not that old i enjoy it when i tell them how much we used to dream about democracy when i ask them what they dream of today and how we can make their dreams come true when assad from using them had one of the most people are probably dreaming of getting a good job about one 3rd of young china's ins are unemployed especially university

4:16 pm
parliamentary system to other young people. like him but he made a comment that was it then we ask people what they would do if they were charged then we tell them where the election is apart and look at people need to. stand what the president does want to parliament does then politics here no longer be a mystery to them in that i use shop shall we let michelle shower go pick it up though all. one topic that continues to puzzle is the outcome of the elections 26 candidates compete with very different profiles and goals according to polls no individual party can count on a majority the 2 top drunk candidates will probably have to face a runoff vote. a quick reminder now of our top story. pro-democracy protests in hong kong are marred by violence again clashes broke out of wall when pro beijing activists faced off with the protesters it's the latest confrontation and months of sometimes violent protests. they're up to

act of. yet so i'm still. living in little and giving you some books and movie and washington being the only news human talent was partially destroyed in the civil war. this is the old the cinema in yemen but not much is left of its former glory. why do you think about it you know something quote after about a 150 volts of power. and this screen played color and black and white movies. it was beautiful getafe it was perfectly. good i said i. used to be responsible for aidance the others and still has to keys to show me around for him thinking about life before the war it's painful i don't like it and i'm good then what's right about it and not a bad pain and i feel we have a diana but i'm only in the cinema. but we are dying because cinematography and

4:21 pm
that's not true because if everyone stopped doing what they have to do with all sunk in the same situation real life expressed through art for artists in yemen it's a way to promote dialogue and ultimately peace in their country. we move on to the mediterranean the waters separating africa and europe are one of the world's deadliest migration routes now the german aid organization c watch is using reconnaissance flights to ensure people don't vanish under the waves. takeoff from an undisclosed location. the german n.g.o.s see watch as taking us on a reconnaissance flight over the mediterranean. mafia and pilots have one main objective saving lives. this you watch aircraft moon bird mainly

operates in the search and rescue zone off the coast of western libya an area that spans more than 350 kilometers of coastline this is where migrant boats set off on their perilous journey to italy and malta footage from an earlier mission shows how that looks dozens of people on an overcrowded rubber dinghy passengers often spend days out at sea exposed to the sun and with limited supplies after hours up in the air we spot a suspicious object in the water i have. that's a sunken rabbiting. for now we don't know what happened to the people on board these cheap inflatable boats are not made to last and sometimes sink after days out at sea. even if kyle and his crew managed to spot a boat in distress it doesn't mean the passengers will be brought to safety due to a crackdown on n.g.o.s there are very few rescue boats left on the water and
4:23 pm
merchant vessels try to avoid the affected area all together often the libyan coast guard is the last resort for kay and his colleagues this is a frustrating experience and that's because as long as ships are being feast rescue capacities are being cut somewhere the only ones keeping an eye on the water we have to deal with situations like this. we are back on the ground where exactly we cannot say. are aware that there are organizations activities are being closely monitored since the government such as italy have started to crack down on rescue n.g.o.s see watch faces public criticism and accusations that they are aiding people smugglers. a claim that most vigorously rejects. but. we would never communicate with people smugglers and no capacity that's simply criminals have made a business with people who suffer and make money out of the 2nd stance that they're so desperate and see no other way and reaching out to them. mr not sensitive in

4:33 pm
a small region in italy that is big on track making. the 1st one way to bring attention to climate change well perhaps by transforming a studio or a soccer stadium into a forest around 300 trees were brought in from nurseries not here of course and planted in a stadium in austria in a bid to make a statement against global warming and deforestation well the artist of this installation believes that if change doesn't happen now in the future we will only be able to see forests in zoom like environment. anyone expecting to see penalties of the vatos stadium cabinets what will be in for a bit of a surprise there's not much soccer going on in this forest. for his
4:34 pm
project the swiss artist was inspired by a drawing by the austrian artist. called the an ending attraction. basically what i'm doing here is trying to produce a quite radical picture and i'm dealing with an underlying theme that next point now also have both of us independently of each other and that's perception. how do we deal with our perceived nature. visitors are not allowed to touch or enter the forest only look at. that money to create a warning monument about the climate crisis it took him 6 years to realize the 4 forest project. he worked together with the swiss landscape architect and so in the.
4:35 pm
lines of the scene at the scene these are the difference of bases here. those there are the black pines you know. they've been replanted 16 tiles. 299 trees were planted between the goal posts creating a mixed forest which has become quite rare in europe these days the trees were located in various german french and italian nurseries some of them were 50 years old all the trees had been transplanted several times so they could cope before being transported the roots were pruned and bound together into a ball then they were fixed into the ground thus the trees will survive without damage to the roots. the focal sorts of things and so it was very difficult for me to find a proportion to the stadium because at 1st i couldn't imagine how it would be. so then i imagined footballers playing there about 1.8 meters tall on average and then
4:36 pm
i imagine them passing balls to each other long shots hard shots. and the stadium boasts $30000.00 seats and just as many ways of seeing the forest visitors to the forest can either sit or wander around the rows. whose artworks also feature in new york's museum of modern art is the visionary who imagined a stadium forest over 40 years ago. but his was not a wild mixed forest. but if you see a story those are great that the forest is different from mine on my way over here i was really scared that they had managed to capture my forest but now. i'm really glad that they do it. in the photos seem nice to see.
4:37 pm
the artwork was financed privately including by collectors and this was fun. clowes littman had discovered the stadium in 2013 and persuaded the city of captain foote to agree to his idea. the project has both supporters and critics see it. it's exactly what we need in order to think about the climate change problem that we have right now it shocks i think it's nonsense to be honest this doesn't belong in a football stadium just saw this and it's a warning monument it's huge parts of the amazon forest have birth down recently because of deforestation and this project shows how important a forest and its function is stick it into the heart of the financial bizarre disease. for forest is a sustainable project visitors can enjoy it until the end of october the stadium opens till late at night afterwards the trees will be transplanted again and will set down their roots not far away for the long term. it's that time of
4:38 pm
year again when cars take center stage at the international auto show in frankfurt now much of the focus is on promoting electric cars but what do you do if you have a vintage a vehicle that still runs on an old catalytic converter while even these old cars are being brought into the era of electric mobility. not all vintage cars have to be noisy and smelly duke is enjoying a new experience his steam powered car from 1938 now has an electric motor. car is 80 years old and now it's experiencing a revival we can enjoy the landscape very quietly my intention is not to change the climate with my car i couldn't do that but i'm sending out a signal. showing people that it is possible to make changes if you really want to
4:39 pm
. could this become a trend. has developed a business model in not far from hamburg in northern germany old cars are equipped with modern technology each model is individually fitted with the right components such a conversion can cost up to 100000 euros. they're enthusiastic who really want to drive fully electric cars but there was nothing on offer except a boring tesla which is like a moving i pad that's how we began in 2015 for people who wanted a car that they really liked. all of these models are unique. but not everyone is convinced about retrofitting vintage cars. drives then stick turiya from 894 that makes it one of the oldest cars in the world he can't imagine fitting it with an electric motor. it would be more than
4:40 pm
a sin it would be. irresponsible ignorance. and finish it would be showing disrespect for the past simply replacing it with something new we are not loyal you would be castrating the vehicle so to speak. for many collectors these cars are an investment and their value is measured by how close they are to the original. context and young can from berlin has created an index to determine how the price of a car should be evaluate it. can see a pair of in principle the value of a vintage car would sink because it would no longer be historical of the value is only particularly high if a car still boasts the original engine and original gear unit. but doesn't an old car with a new motor remain an old car or a collector such as philip but johnny absolutely not he would never swap the gasoline engine from his 970 s. b.m.w.
4:41 pm
. but redefining it out of that would be like taking out the car's heart. and the engine is the heart of the b.m.w. it would be like hauling it out it would be removing the car's art and probably it sold too. that's how it's done for them. and he's not worried about the fact that gasoline engines might eventually be banned. thank god it's making its if your cars with gasoline engines are banned and i'll just let it stand somewhere. and it'll be of cultural value and just stay in one place. for. the shots and i can all tell us just what i like about old cars is that they represent a certain period in time and i can experience the history firsthand i'm not in a museum i can really feel how it was at the time just would not support you don't need to rattle the engine as far you can still feel how it was to drive with the springs the imprecise steering and the way it looks to.
4:42 pm
so the engine no longer has to rattle it can simply perm thanks to evildoers even vintage cars can be state of the art. time now to take a trip and europe is great for weekend getaways but how do you decide what to do when you only have a couple days to sightsee well leave it up to me to give you some tips on my latest perfect weekend away i visited iceland capital reykjavik and it's surroundings now aside from discovering amazing landscapes and even going horseback riding i discovered some pop up surprises as well. yoga in the middle of reykjavik it's very cold but that doesn't stop icelanders or me from heading
4:43 pm
outside after we won in welcome to my perfect weekend in reykjavik. now i'm feeling energized to see what reykjavik has on offer iceland's capital is located on the north atlantic ocean in the summer time the days are long but the temperatures rarely exceed 14 degrees celsius no wonder icelanders love their wool i absolutely need a warm hat and for that i go to the hand kneading association of iceland all the items here of course are net by hand i'm curious as to how long this takes i think i can make a pair of socks like this in $5.00 and a sweater is 15 i think i also try my luck with the knitting needles but at this rate i would probably need a whole year for a sweater. i did. my shopping
4:44 pm
to for a souvenir is something needed from icelandic. now a mormon up from my city stroll passing by colorful houses i reach a landmark of reykjavik the how the groom's cake yeah it was built over a 40 year period finished in 1986 the norse explorer lay for ethics and stands tall out front this modern sculpture known as the sun voyager also stands for the discovery of new worlds another modern structure on the water is the harp a concert hall designed in part by danish artist alias and. fresh fish arrives every day at the harbor this is also home to the oldest restaurant of the city the coffee wagner and or the coffee wagon because that's how it began in 1935 this is where i. and up with head chef jenny who knows dog here for lunch she recommends caught from the pan. i'll say this most popular in iceland we call it

4:46 pm
this is because the horse has always one wolf in the ground so it makes it very nice and smooth to. icelandic horses have a to 5 gaits compared to 3 for other horses. this is my activity to a perfect weekend in reykjavik a ride on an icelandic horse. yeah. i traded my one horse power for something a little stronger in my journey continues on the so-called golden ring this road leads to one of the most famous natural wonders of iceland the gold false waterfall these are glacial waters that flow into the hippie to river. park ranger house get yongsan tells me how the waterfall was saved from industrial use. it is an interesting story so you've heard.
4:47 pm

spring began democracy has not been easy for the country the tunisian voters head to the polls on sunday's 1st snap presidential election nearly 90 percent say they're fed up with politics. i'm married to an infinite. good to have you with us a pro-democracy protests in hong kong has been disrupted by counter demonstrators waving chinese flags the sit in at a shopping mall in the chinese territory became the scene of violent clashes when pro beijing activists confronted the demonstrators. this is just one of several protests planned for today on congress in its 4th month of pro-democracy demonstrations they were initially launched to oppose
5:04 pm
a controversial extradition bill that had since why and to demand free elections in the specially administered territory. well i spoke a short while ago to w.'s cheery chant in hong kong i asked her to describe the scene on the ground. what. i saw there are lots of confrontations between whole police supporters and pro-democracy protesters and 1st of all they were all in the shopping mall and then they had some confrontations with each other and then clashes broke out and then riot police arrived and they actually have arrest a circle pro-democracy protests. chariot we have been seeing clashes between the pro-democracy protesters and police over the last several weeks but now these violent clashes between pro-democracy protesters and probe asia supporters seems to be a new escalation isn't. excellent this is not really
5:05 pm
a new escalation confrontations and conflicts between the 2 groups have always existed but then they don't always appear in the same location so we don't see a lot of pictures where they clash or feature though or have arguments but today. because the pro-democracy protesters they knew that this probe a change supporters would be in this shopping mall so they planned to come here to have concept protests and show their support for the protesters and that's why the 2 groups meets here today and the clashes broke out. while the pro-democracy protesters had said that they intended to keep the demonstrations peaceful so what sparked the violence. right so that they have always planted it to be peaceful but then that but that
5:06 pm
whenever they see a probate change supporters is that the boat that they are a clash between each other. because when they enforce that what is the focus. and that. that that's. right thank you thank you thank you thank you so you can see that of that approach pro-democracy protests as they are really trying to get international attention. well cherry yes indeed and where you are is not the only location where protests will be taking place in hong kong what else is going on in the city today. to day there are several they from protests in different shopping malls in different districts they say also helping protests in the process about but actually entering this weekend the biggest protests is tomorrow the sunday protest actually yesterday when we were on the street with the protests as we also hear
5:07 pm
them calling everyone to join the protest tomorrow although the protest has been banned tomorrow by the police but then these protests essays they still said that they will go on the streets anyway. to the west cherry chant reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much. to them bob way now where tens of thousands of people have gathered for the state funeral of former leader robert mugabe ceremony in the capital harare is being held at the national sports stadium which can seat up to 60000 people many current and former african leaders are in attendance mugabe rules and bob wafer 37 years after becoming the country's 1st leader following white minority rule he was ousted by his own military in 2017 and died in a singapore hospital last week at the age of 95. w n n clichy is at the venue in harare he gave us
5:08 pm
a sense of the ceremony which closes a chapter in zimbabwe's history. well thousands of people are celebrating right now inside the stadium celebrating the life of former president robert mugabe votes 10 african heads of states are also here. but it's also not a side of the story because the stage is basically house empty and this shows that a lot of zimbabweans are rather indifferent about what is happening if you go to the streets of ferrara the capital here life goes on as normal and it's lost indifference. but even there is have been and then been in dispute over where exactly robert mugabe is remains would be laid to rest and how was that ultimately resolved. so it was supposed to lay to rest at the hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protested they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil
5:09 pm
gobbler will finally be buried what that shows is a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when mugabe was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity and to pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the elections even advice to supporters not to vote for the governing party so this whole dispute about whether god will be laid to rest really shows a good division that you can that is still visible here in zimbabwe or around the ruling party we mentioned already there are many people paying tribute to one copy others are just staying away he was of course of very controversial figure so what kind of legacy does he mean. well absolutely on the one hand he
5:10 pm
is seen as a liberation hero somebody who fought the white minority rule but then there's also this other side of the story of robert mugabe who basically run down this country in the almost 40 years of his presidency the economy went completely down it is still struggling a quo. so if zimbabweans left the country because of this of course we also sued must remember the human rights abuses that were committed under his watch. in harare thank you. our that's going to check now some of the other stories making news around the world yemen based who the rebels have claimed responsibility for drone attacks on to keep oil facilities in eastern saudi arabia the saudi interior ministry says huge fires at the science have now been brought under control who these have vowed to widen attacks on saudi arabia which backs their rivals in yemen civil war. hospital fire in rio de janeiro has left at least 11 people dead firefighters rescued dozens of patients from smoke filled war is the blaze is

also the king of denmark. which meant that from the danish perspective this region was always a part of denmark. under the. week was officially a danish fief but they were increasingly pushing for their sovereignty so what we saw or put in simple terms was a centuries long back and forth about whether this region belong to the german empire or to denmark so this is how did this down have done and i've got a part of its name. standing counts and that's. this vision of the city of chalets big on the line was a seat of power and scent of a train so before long the duck she was called. so many centuries the 2 duck she's taken hold on divine data and together they form what today is the state. higher of this is the source of the fullness of. this stately baroque

5:53 pm
to the rum trade that slender spoke experienced its best of times. it was from here from the flensburg fjord harbor that ship set sail to the caribbean to bring rock to europe. the anyone from regatta come immigrates the time when fun sport was the rum city of europe. over $100.00 sailboats compete in the event. some 200 years ago merchant ships brought wealth from the caribbean into the city. this had to be sure that the trained with the danish colonies it wouldn't have become so affluent in other words without sugar and around. but this trade also had a far less savory side denmark engaged in so-called triangular trade it shipped
5:54 pm
slaves from africa to the caribbean to work on the sugarcane plantations their. magnificent merchant houses from the time still stand in flensburg today. walking through the city it's easy to imagine how rum was once refined blended and stored here. there were around $200.00 rum houses in flensburg at the end of the 18th century. and they managed to keep their business is going for a long time. enough and so i conveyed week after the 2nd world will flensburg produces moved in on the markets

6:04 pm
the specially administered territory. when i spoke a short while ago to w.'s cheery chand in hong kong i asked her to describe the scene on the ground. what. i saw there are lots of confrontations between paul police supporters and pro-democracy protesters and 1st of all they were all in the shopping mall and then they had some confrontations with each other and then pleasures broke out and then riot police arrived and they actually have arrest the surf a roll pro-democracy protests. cherry we have been seeing clashes between the pro-democracy protesters and police over the last several weeks but now these violent clashes between pro-democracy protesters and prob asia supporters seems to be a new escalation isn't. actually if this is not really
6:05 pm
a new escalation and confrontations and conflicts between the 2 groups have always existed but then they don't always appear in the same location so we don't see a lot of pictures where they clash with each other or have arguments but today. because the pro-democracy protesters they knew that this probe a change supporters would be in this shopping mall so they planned to come here to have counts of protests and show their support for the protesters and that's why they had the 2 groups meet here today and the clashes broke out. while the pro-democracy protesters had said that they intended to keep the demonstrations peaceful so what sparked the violence. right so all that they have always planted there to be peaceful and that but then whenever they see
6:06 pm
a probate change supporters is the boat that they will clash with each other. because when they force that wanted to go. and that. ad. that that's. right thank you thank you thank you thank you and so you can see that of that approach pro-democracy protests as they have really trying to get international attention. well cherry yes indeed and where you are is not the only location where protests will be taking place in hong kong what else is going on in the city today. and today there are several different protests in different shopping malls in different districts they may also protests in the parks as well but actually at during this week a the biggest protests is tomorrow the sunday protest actually yesterday when we were on the streets with the protests as we also hear that calling everyone to join
6:07 pm
the protest tomorrow although the protest has been banned tomorrow by the police but then these protests essays they still said that they will go on the streets anyway. today was cherry chant reporting for us from hong kong thank you so much. to zimbabwe now where tens of thousands of people have gathered for the state funeral of former leader robert mugabe ceremony in the capital harare is being held at the national sports stadium which can seat up to 60000 people many current and former african leaders are in attendance who got the rules and bob wait for 37 years after becoming the country's 1st leader following white minority rule he was ousted by his own military in 2017 and died in a singapore hospital last week at the age of 95. italy is in clichy is at the venue in harare he gave us
6:08 pm
a sense of the ceremony which closes a chapter in zimbabwe's history. well thousands of people are celebrating right now inside the stadium celebrating the life of former president robert mugabe votes 10 african heads of states are also here. but it's also 3 not a side of the story because the stage is basically house empty and this shows that a lot of zimbabweans are rather indifferent about what is happening if you go to the streets of ferrara the capital here life goes on as normal and it's a lot of indifference. but when there is have been been a dispute over where exactly robert mugabe's remains would be laid to rest how was that ultimately resolved. so i was supposed to lay to rest at the hero's acre here in howrah as a national hero but then the family protested they say they were not being taken into consideration by the government and now it will take 30 more days on civil gabo will finally be buried what that shows is
6:09 pm
a strong rift between the mugabe side and the current government because we have to remember 2 years ago when we got it was basically kicked out of the office by the military but also by parts of his very own party they back then said that this is not an action against mugabe have but it's against corrupt people around him and they even gave him impunity and a pension but mugabe took that as very bitter that's what his family members kept on saying he was not happy about that last year in the elections even advised to support us not to vote for the governing party so this whole dispute about whether god will be laid to rest really shows a good division that you can that is still visible here in zimbabwe or around the ruling party we mentioned already there are many people paying tribute to one copy others are just staying away he was of course of very controversial figure so what kind of legacy does he mean. well absolutely on the one hand
6:10 pm
he's seen as a liberation hero somebody who fought the white minority rule but then there's also this other side of the story of robert mugabe who basically run down this country in the almost 40 years off his presidency the economy when it's completely down it is still struggling a quote. so if zimbabweans left the country because of this of course we also sued must remember the human rights abuses that were committed under his watch to increase in harare thank you. are that get a check now some of the other stories making news around the world yemen based who the rebels have claimed responsibility for drone attacks on to keep oil facilities in eastern saudi arabia the saudi interior ministry says huge fires of the science have now been brought under control who piece of bow to widen attacks on saudi arabia which backs their rivals in yemen civil war. hospital fire in rio de janeiro has left at least 11 people dead firefighters rescued dozens of patients from smoke

registered to vote in the last few weeks perhaps this is also due to the chair initiative which was launched by the president where young activists advertise the parliamentary system to other young people. like him but he might like someone that was a then we ask people what they would do if they were in charge then we tell them why the election is important look at people need to understand what the president does want to parliament does then politics you're no longer be a mystery to them and that i used to shop show me the mission up someone go pick up the wall. one topic that continues to puzzle is the outcome of the elections 26 candidates compete with very different profiles and goes according to polls no individual party can count on a majority the 2 top drunk candidates will probably have to face a runoff fight. some sports news now and the bundesliga is back after the international break with distilled or drawing one all with was fork in the friday game kicking off match day 4 disregards home fans were treated to an early goal

video and. top. dogs like these can bring in lots of money dealers are trying to peddle a puppy in berlin we recorded the attempt on a hidden camera i will have a moment she's cute where she's from become the rep she set to be from so she has all the shots. that how much you're asking no 10500 euros. the police move in up animal welfare arrest steffen clips time seen here on the left witnesses scenes like this almost daily. and i read it the way he finds suspicious ads on the internet and alerts the police.
6:19 pm
did mine is that the illegal trade in dogs is a multi-billion euro business. with all. the. stuff unclip stein is an expert in the dog trade he came across this little montes on the internet and informed the police for over 5 years now the volunteer animal welfare arrest has been rescuing dogs from smugglers. and if you haven't done this is another typical ad in the gulf a dog's presented by itself on a soap and as bad i have my mission in the war a respectable dog breeder would never present his dog like that and even the $500.00 euro price is way too cheap from a regular breeder it would cost from 121200 euros if no one told him told in 5
6:20 pm
minutes or war. on these operations clips stein always works with the decoys a fake fire. his face is now too well known among the dog. so a friend is helping out on this one for. a home very important ask the dog really comes from serbia you've seen it before you've already done this many times the betting district is a hotbed of the illegal dog trade that's another clue we see that here all the time i hope it isn't somebody we already know. me to but we'll handle it. that way i'm a. hunch was right the buyers turn out to be illegal dog dealers with their long records they're placed under arrest. i'm right there.
6:21 pm
in front of the movie and there was a part is when you think it could spin out of control and you're waiting for the police to help you feel in full. never really know the noble. old man to know he's got a bad eye infection and the ears are totally sore. they washed him today didn't that most of us with mom yes they did he smells like dog shampoo that none of the dealers always do that so the dogs will smell and look better for the buyers. the dog is probably 8 to 10 weeks old and you shouldn't even be in germany and up for sale here because of. puppies may only be exported to other e.u. member states after 15 weeks of age before that they have to get all required vaccinations for their own health and to keep from spreading diseases forceable and the next day we meet stefan in
6:22 pm
a cafe in berlin he didn't want to be filmed at home vengeful smugglers have attacked him many times and even seriously injured him. over here but you are kind and so if you look through e-bay classifieds you'll find over 16000 ads for dogs for sale. and that's just on e bay just on e bay. there are various other sites that also after ties pets for sale in this are the most and if you include all of europe live in the grown son who millions of dogs are sold every year the profit margin is very wide because the dogs can be bought in eastern europe very cheap and then sold for 3 to 4 times as much here. and i'd say 8 out of 10 ads on e bay classifieds are from disreputable dealers trading in dogs illegally covered $100.00. 1 the figures from the german animal welfare association will show that most of the puppies export it illegally from eastern europe are taken to germany
6:23 pm
the main country of origin for the smugglers is romania there the dog smugglers employ another scam they smuggle stray dogs instead of pedigree canines to germany and often through dubious animal welfare organizations or private individuals. it may sound improbable can you make money with stray dogs hundreds of thousands live in the streets i can collect them from there or from animal shelters they even get them for free with them in germany they'd have to pay a token charge they sell the. here and cash in big on people's compassion. the animal welfare arrests estimate that europe's illegal dog trade now brings in billions of euros almost as much as the narcotics trade course that isn't always going to use it so this comes on the foreign animal protection agencies are very different from anyone acting against them or exposing their illegal doings as persecuted stalked and slandered from there so people know the smugglers will bring
6:24 pm
a mountain of trouble down on that. romania. but here stray dogs are a major problem hardly anyone looks up to them and they're either put to sleep or smuggled to germany diseased and abused. right here mario skeer takes on the smugglers at the opposite end of the criminal network he files complaints on lobbies to have the laws changed he's also experienced physical attacks by the smugglers. and i think that. over time he became ever more involved in the work eventually quitting his job and opening an animal shelter for the rescued dogs he
6:25 pm
takes the badly injured ones home to care for them personally. among them is the sheep dog corbucci his previous owner chopped off all his paws with a hatchet after the starving dog killed and ate a chicken the cruel owner was only paying elias with a find. people who are making. smugglers tossed costy into a garbage can when animal welfare rist expose them but now costy is master of the house. pictures of neglected dogs can also be turned into money self professed animal welfare residents in germany work together with
6:26 pm
middlemen in romania to collect massive donations on the internet most of them over facebook they said a vast money machine in motion. slipping out of them live with the rescue was right i need money for the transit and the germans italians and english stop folk it's over pretty soon the smugglers get a few 1000 euros together. they transport the dogs to a shelter where they start the search for more sponsors. the same ones who've already donated send even more money then comes the next stage money allegedly needed for vaccinations classes and so on so they rake in even more probably 222-5000 euros for 30 to 40 dogs. that's quite a sum and a business that both police and in their herd and observers are acquainted with officially about 5000 stray dogs are taken out of romania across the hungary and
6:27 pm
border daily the true figure may be far higher. e.u. regulations require a chip implanted in every exported dog the data are entered into the e.u. data bank system allowing for verification of previous owners and vaccinations corrupt veterinarians willing to issue false papers are vital to the dog smugglers . a veterinarian from romania has agreed to talk about the corrupt system she asks to remain anonymous. she says i've gotten several requests to issue trace's certification without actually having seen the animals they basically wanted to give me a list of chips so that i provide passports papers and traces in return for cash i refused to accept those offers the vaccinations are also fake they have spread disease all over europe. stephan clip stein is acquainted with this practice
6:28 pm
having worked for some time in an animal shelter now he has an office job and spends most of his free time helping animals his interest goes back to his childhood days. i found my calling in combating these dealers and taking action to stop with them so of course it's nice to work in a shelter but these animals keep showing up no fundamental changes are made because people aren't informed and don't push the government to make those changes and to put it in the friend of. mine is lobbying for official support he needs with cure involved animal welfare expert for the c.d.u. in berlin. it is a major problem is that animals are increasingly being sold under the pretense of animal welfare many from romania they say they're rescuing stray dogs that are for a field 60 or 70 dogs are referred over facebook to owners who know nothing about them and some companies are even specializing in shipping them on mass from eastern
6:29 pm
europe to germany. this is nice of you to help but this is actually a matter for the states the threat of prosecution has to be that i suggest each district gets its own animal welfare department exclusively for this instead of leaving it to the food inspectors if you want to know is in quote one of the teams here to assist the theater just because they are. well to put it as an animal welfare arrest i often have to call the police myself research and document cases the veterinary office does it half heartedly. and they say they weren't there to see it even though it was their job and they can't impose any fines because they don't know the facts i get the impression there's no will to take action if the. stuff unclip stein has his own dog but he spends less time with it then he'd really like to know.
6:30 pm
doesn't it if you assume that it's good to see a happy dog and a nice home for the home but i know that millions of dogs live in the streets or in pens half dead puppies are sold over e-bay and if they don't sell they land in the garbage can. that outrages them frustrates me that this animal trade on the internet still hasn't been prohibited and it's your hope will be moved. it is already prohibited in austria and switzerland but that's not likely to happen in germany any time soon and so a month for month several 1000000 euros disappear into smugglers pockets for dogs from eastern europe. explorers. naturalist. renaissance man.

6:34 pm
alexander for whom boyd was for sure one of the greatest scientists of previous times of all times when he was the most famous scientist of his time and i think he's undergoing a little bit of a renaissance at the moment i think quite rightly so because i think his views on how he brings together the arts and the science how he says that we need to use our imagination and our feelings to understand nature i think are extreme very relevant . today we're dealing with climate change so no one dares to talk about the nature of the beauty of nature the vulnerable beauty of our planet and i think that something that. something. that we could probably use today. alexander was born to wealthy parents in

and then there's a there's another argument where you can say that he was he had a very strong influence on scene one would have are they met in paris and agent for just went home returned and one of our later set that home was woke up south americans with his pen so was home alone i think so ho almost descriptions of latin america west so vivid and so beautiful he gave the colonists the confidence to fight their fight of independence. this soldier and statesman simone boulevard was instrumental in liberation latin american countries from spanish control. alexander from home world is the true discoverer of america his studies did more for america than the action of all the congress before his expedition to south america to ask for travel permission from the spanish came
6:39 pm
and received a passport for the colonies but he was shocked by how arrogant and brutal the colonial rulers were towards the indigenous peoples was he aware of his own privileges as a wealthy european. i don't know if he would see it as we see it today we have to always bear in mind these historic figures that they live in their times what i can say is that he was unlike other europeans who traveled through south america so unlike other europeans he did not see the indigenous people for example as savages or as barbaric. quite the opposite so he was he respected them he would use them as their guides and he very quickly realized that they were. that they could navigate the jungle in a completely different way so he described them as the best observers of nature as the best your professor ever met he also collected all their languages and later
6:40 pm
said it's there's not a language in south america through which we could not express an abstract philosophical european concept. yet when he set off on his 1st major expedition on the orinoco one of south america's longest rivers ignored the protests of his local guides and dug up skulls in a burial ground in the name of science. was a man of his time he was committed to the enlightenment but he was also obsessive puja voted to his research and could also be inconsiderate of others as well as of himself. he pushed himself to his limits he was not well prepared when he set off to climb chimborazo the soles of his shoes were far too thin and he had no gloves his feet was soon blistered and bloody but he almost made it to the
6:41 pm
top to an altitude of $5917.00 mages. no european had ever made it that far. made drawings of everything that he observed so he could show others later. his famous cross sectional diagram of chimborazo sheds light on different climate and vegetation zones and gives an insight into his understanding of nature. he came up with a new concept. and that concept is that nature is a weapon life that nature is an interconnected whole where everything somehow hangs together from the smallest insect to the tallest tree and he described as a living organism so that's what i mean with the invention of nature that he's not . then nature was much more seen as a mechanical system not as a living organism. the idea of nature as
6:42 pm
a living organism in which everything is interconnected was a new one in the 19th century but humbled also warned that humans were a danger to nature he not only wanted people to understand nature but to feel that this is something that we now have to think about in the current debate about the climate crisis sensible. we have the ability is just not acceptable so in the scientific world for example in peer reviewed articles scientists are not allowed to write about their feelings and their emotions if you speak to scientists most will tell you that they became a scientist because they love nature so i think it is there and it is really time to dare to introduce this into debates again for example i give you one example which you know in the in. our whole debate about climate change we tend to talk about statistics so we say we talk about the increasing acidity of of the
6:43 pm
oceans but we don't talk about the beauty of while. we all know how terrible oil production is for our planet but it is the photograph of a. black oil drenched that makes us kind of stop. untrainable space selling book the invention of nature alexander from humble this new world is not only a biography but an adventure story about who travels and discoveries full of exciting imagery. wherever home bottom bomb plant during those 1st weeks of c'mon or something new there tension the landscape have to spell over. the palm trees where ornament it was magnificent red blossoms the birds and fish seem to compete in. there carlos complex use and even the crayfish risk i blew and you know pink flamingos to one leg at the shore and the palms families model the white sand into
6:44 pm
patchwork of shape there were butterflies monkeys and so many plants to catalog that we run around like fools even the usually on ruffled bump said that he would go mad if the wonders don't stop soon. to get to know her subjects will spend hours in archives libraries and private collections all over the world but she also literally followed in footsteps. only. one of the great things to write a book about an explorer is that you get to travel the world obviously all in the name of research so i had so much fun. following his footsteps so it was a great excuse to go to latin america where i had never been before and i don't know how other writers do it but i need to i can't describe the landscape i've not seen myself so because i'm not a wealthy prussian aristocrat i could not go on a 5 exploration so i had to going to pick and choose so i went up and brought so we
6:45 pm
are on the edge of the rocks and 5000 meters and sound and here because this whole boat came here and it was here on the chin crux of. it is vision is nature is unified this is really the moment where you hear is he's approaching you guys they're high up i'm giving up here 5000 meters. so that was a spectacular moment also because the weather can be so terrible and we were just so lucky everything was perfect and then there was a moment to santa which is another of the volcanoes where we actually found the hut in which homeworld had slept at 4000 meters with 6. she is later untrainable stored on mt sinai again in a lustrous company german president franco to sharon meyer had invited her to
6:46 pm
accompany his delegation to south america they went to colombia and ecuador and to the collapse of the silence in february 29000 shimei in all great at the home of all year to mark the 250th anniversary of humboldt birth wolf was of course the perfect member of the delegation since she had helped to rescue the great explorer from relative oblivion. if someone had told me 8 years ago when i sat on my own in an archive reading through home was horrible have writing that in 2019 i would listen to the german president give a speech in quito about home was relevance for the environmental debate today i would have never believed it and that for me was very for every important moment a moment with guns bombs and everything because for me the homework that is so important is the one who talks about who warns about the destruction of the
6:47 pm
environment in it more than 200 years ago and to see him being used for this argument again i think is just wonderful. bestseller has been translated into many languages and sold in dozens of countries she's been invited all over the world has received numerous prizes and given dozens of speeches at conferences or on television and she's also on the program committee of the hall forum billions new museum for world cultures that's expected to open in 2020 the building that will house it based on berlin's form a city palace contains old and new architectural elements. the home bought for a showcase berlin's rich collections of non european cultural artifacts. how would under a of wolf curation exhibition here if given the chance. well
6:48 pm
1st of all i'm glad i'm not a curator just a historian so i don't have to do this but i think i would. put something in there that deals with this link between the arts and the sciences that bridge that we've completely forgotten so we tend to draw the sharp line between you know we see them as 2 different disciplines but someone like homeboy very much united thing that's really missing at the moment so i would look at that. and also because it's not just alexander it's also vilhelm is that they both have the name home so it should be also something about languages which i think you could bring like poetry science arts stuff like that together alexander's older brother the statesman an educational reform bill him from whom bald was also very famous journey his life time the whole ball brothers grew up at schloss tagle losing their
6:49 pm
father as an early age their mother was a staunch advocate of education and both of them made the most of this each in his own way. so they had they were very different already as children both both set that they had an unhappy childhood. escaped into books stories of ancient rome and greece and alexander escaped into the forests and taken care of you know stuff little insect in his pocket and collected and and then later as younger man's they were they were not very close. and then. really i was very critical about. living in paris and said that you know you forget your job and this and then later as older man that's the best is really wonderful shift you can see how they become very close and they begin to work
6:50 pm
together and when you look at. williams work on language you can see that if he does exactly what alexander bass with nature he sees language as a living organism. vilhelm was the prussian academic alexander the cosmopolitan explorer who became world famous he soon found berlin to provincial and lived in paris when he wasn't travelling his journeys took him to the united states and russia. and though he spent years planning a voyage to india he never made it there as britain's king george the 4th wouldn't give him permission. home bolt is everywhere monuments places and geographical features around the world have been named after him including the home both current which flows along the western coast of south america there's also the penguin this lily is named after him
6:51 pm
even bears who bolts 9. it's weird when you go to america where hardly anyone knows alexander from on board there's so many places named after their best for example there are 13 towns named after him there are 4 counties there's a bay there is a river there is a university named after and there's the cheese some some younger. kids kind of teenagers early twenty's people know his name because the best marianna comes from humboldt county so they have heard is there but they don't know who he is 150 years ago it was a different story in 196910 years after his death and on the 100th anniversary of his birth both was honored with fireworks around the globe why was he all but forgotten afterwards. there's not a single big discovery attached to him was the name so he did not come up with the
6:52 pm
theory of evolution or he didn't discover. a natural law he came up with this idea that nature as a weapon of life we've taken this idea for so technical so so much for granted that we forgot the man behind this idea i think that's one thing and the other thing is that he is the his way of doing science of saying yes on the one hand you have to measure everything but on the other hand you also have to use your imagination was absolutely not accepted in the early 20th century anymore and then last but not least at least in the english speaking world he there's a very strong german sentiment with world war one so that's the that's the moment when he's going to get pushed out of the public memory here. many of whom both scientists seem to address contemporary problems not only because we are increasingly dealing with the effects of climate change but also because more and more people are asking what they can do to hold to it such as those taking part in the fridays to future movement headed by swedish chain richard to. realize 2
6:53 pm
centuries earlier that human intervention in the natural world can have terrible consequences. there's a moment in his diary in 81 when he's when he's in latin america where he actually says that one day we might travel to distant planets and if we do that we will bring who take our lethal mixture of greed arrogance and while it's with us and we will leave those planets as ravage as we've already done with so i think he sees this trajectory what we are what we are. about to what's about to happen i mean he in $832.00 he says there are 3 ways in which the in which humans can affect the climate he says is through deforestation through irrigation and through the great masses of steam and gas at the industrial centers $832.00 so that was pretty good
6:54 pm
prediction pretty prophetic. but the time bill finished. writing the invention of nature she thought she knew everything there was to know about alexander from whom boat had been bilin state library acquired his diaries which hadn't been accessible to the public before and she wasn't done with one boat yet. there is actually one moment i can tell you exactly when i decided that i had to write a 2nd book about which was when. when his legendary south american diaries where bored so they had been in private ownership until them but at the end of 2013 they were bored by the process and heritage foundation and they were made available online so this was the moment when the 1st pages became available at the end of 2014 this was the moment when i was just handing over my manuscript for the invention of nature. so i couldn't use them. for the invention page which was
6:55 pm
not a problem tons of content we cause we had transcriptions but seeing the actual paper pages 4000 pages with hundreds of little sketches and drawings i knew i wanted to do a book that would also show on boards artistic visual side because he did not just understand nature intellectually but also visually so that's when i decided to do whatever you want to call it kind of graphic novel or graphic nonfiction illustrated. journey of discovery or whatever it is but something that would show his stuff this trailer based on the adventures of alexander from home bold shows that the book does more than summarize homebuilt south american adventure it recounts his 1st encounter with the continent's indigenous peoples his fascination with its natural beauty his discoveries and his observations about man made disasters illustrator lilian melcher worked many of whom original texts and
6:56 pm
drawings into this wonderful graphic novel. so in a way he became the collaborator so i wrote it. about on every single page there something that did his manuscripts his his engravings his original plan specimens his maps so he has his handwriting is everywhere. untrainable spent a decade researching the life of alexander one home in archives libraries and private collections she traveled the world following in his footsteps to find out what he saw and felt on his expeditions she learned about the hardships he endured and the diversity of nature there's no doubt that alexander from whom bolt was a fascinating figure. how do you close the book from someone's son vibrant and does she even want to know. what i think i want to have to say goodbye forever
6:57 pm
he's just going to be like an old friend you see not as much as anymore. i'm pretty sure that i'll continue being interested in him i mean this is the same with my previous books about the founding fathers i still do talks and events about us to do interviews about it not as much as and anymore but i do have the feeling in the last almost 4 years since the invention came out i've been home what's purpose of the lady and it's kind of time to step back at some stage so. in 2020 i'm going to finally write another book aust you know it so so i will see less off it i won't get complaints the divorced but i will so we'll have some new friends out which i will have to album and to tame not just oh untrainable smear project is a enough a historical biography this one is about several people does she won't reveal whom
6:58 pm
the however she doubt she'll ever encounter a another fee get as exciting i'm 50 lent and important to us alexander form him bolt the great gemma naturalist and explore rough of mood to move into

7:05 pm
so at least from what i've seen there were no probating. there were none of them being arrested but i've seen 2 pro-democracy protesters being arrested by the police and even though both sides they are quite aggressive and foul and sometimes and so this claim is also justifiable from pro-democracy protesters and it's also actually heightened tension between the protesters and the police because they think that the police really is really siding with the probation group. tomorrow there is another major demonstration planned in the home going to last more. so tomorrow these protests actually by the police but then. in the past several days you can hear a lot of protests is already saying that they will go anyway and they're also calling for more people to come out and actually. who is trying to apply for the

7:21 pm
poaching is on the rise and tourists no longer count. behind. them to china for days to fill one of the 1st questions i asked the director of the park when he called was what will they do as i say my idea was that africans are not used to women being figures of authority. but i soon noticed that i had no problems right from the beginning. i could cry they call me mama which not only means mother but is a mark of respect when i tell them to do something they do it and even as i get most of the most. of what i know. discusses the training plan with christian the leader of the congo hound unit. where yes bobby's not cooperating as usual he's resistant. but.

believe. that we. did. this secure those are very serious sense of the breed and we have here the bloodhound is new for us for what they were the 1st time i saw these dogs i was afraid of them and didn't like the hero. not even our ancestors kept dogs. then when i saw these bloodhounds with their long years and huge noses i thought they were really bizarre. to. me. from the very 1st day as soon as the dogs arrived i started working with it but i got used to them after a while. then i changed my career from being

7:25 pm
go right that's right yes good dog. in the film but at some point the bloodhound realizes that it's fun that he'll get a snack or cries at the end and he also realizes that the item of clothing. front of him belongs to the person he's looking for you can build on this in training. like you yes well done david. i. was. jump yeah shako i retired psychometrist from ban heard about the anti poaching

i. think i i. i just the way what you see on the page. akira. animals bravo. thank you what kind of animals. don't shout out i can see you all i see. old school buses going yes they are wild animals thank you. even minister who is threatening the park. you have to know this if we're going to fight this threat. yet there are poachers. by these poachers good people.
7:30 pm
should the poachers be protected 40. 00000000 so you must know there are park rangers to protect us and there are specially trained sniffer dogs they can follow the scent of an animal which has been killed over 200 kilometers away with this i. think. the most article bear. was. going to post the folks at the village population sees the dogs with a mixture of great curiosity and fear in the beginning they shouted simba swahili the line. while. the crap out of bloodhound has been bred for following old difficult and long
7:31 pm
trials for over a 1000 years the animal has been selected to do this work called man trailing the men to a full. of all dogs the bloodhound has one of the best develops. senses of smell it is capable of sniffing the scent of a certain person and following it weeks later over distances of many kilometers. a bloodhound can even smell the scent of the person who fired a bullet from this cartridge casing dropped carelessly to the ground after being heated top 1000 degrees when fired.
7:32 pm
during their training the dogs become accustomed to increasingly difficult situations noise different types of ground and trails of differing ages the animal is capable of working successfully in villages where there are countless smells. but. come here show us. to clearly identify the person sort the dog gets up on its back legs is then reward it.
7:33 pm
in. a hall hope you know the 1st time i came here the rangers didn't even know how to take a dog for a walk i was able to choose some good people but they had no training and no experience of were. with dogs or how to look after them i had to start from scratch i also had to learn how to get my message across to train them. on those fingers. that look trying to do it as if you were a dog. the training takes about 2 years during which the dog and the handler build up a relationship of trust they can only work successfully as a team. you can go right or left left or be this way right would be here exactly.
7:34 pm
you did a good job there come on leyla for you and after she sniffed it say search. can someone take that have. bloodhounds don't simply accept orders they are never totally obedient humans have to learn the dog's language and how to interpret the dog's behavior correctly. then lead her lead her lead her and now give her time. in difficult situations the handler has to be able to recognize whether the dog is following the trail of the right person. blower khulood hounds can get along with the climate almost anywhere the problem here of course is the whole infrastructure there's hardly anything in congo there are no shops no department stores not in east congo so i have to import everything we have here in the congo hound unit for the rangers and the dogs in
7:35 pm
suitcases from switzerland. or i don't have the chance to transport them with a container or anything but i thought if hong. i normally travel to congo with 4 to 6 suitcases or 23 kilos and travel back with just 1 may be at about 12 kilos. we did so if the 12 killed. the same with cora. yes it's the same problem so we'll keep on with the bedpan tain it's hope or was this enough. of 12 i was for the from the beginning one of the biggest problems was veterinary care we have to do most of it ourselves. so i've trained my ranges like veterinary assistance they can
7:36 pm
do general examinations they can give injections or infusions. they can also perform blood tests especially for blood parasites. we have a microscope here and they're very good at using it probably better than me because they do it more often think with operating base althea's basis is 14. was. ok at least is $4.00 kilos. oh no that's because of your hand. that is that. ok. so i made some vision at the moment for example our dogs are pretty thin thinner than they should be. if you had that we feed them natural food that means beef and rice or potatoes or vegetables oil and
7:37 pm
a mixture of vitamins and minerals and all of me think it's good if a dog doesn't have to work and when he's not growing like that but unfortunately we've noticed that our 1st puppy bonus has developed a growth deficiencies. for that we tried to find some ready mix food but doesn't exist in congo so now we're importing food from kenya so the dogs are not hungry they get big portions 2 to 3 times a day but for growing dogs or working dogs it's not enough. that. i. felt. my. i've. ready
7:38 pm
never on the national park is in the middle of a region which has been afflicted by armed conflict for 30 years. 600 armed rangers including dog handlers risk their lives on a daily basis to guarantee the protection of the park they are recruited from the surrounding villages and undertake strict military training. i. might i swore an oath to save wild animals and to protect nature. that's my job and i'm willing to die for it to sacrifice my life to the protection of these animals them or even if they're my feet for thanks from this is on. the printer for protecting nature is the 1st priority family come 2nd.
7:39 pm
to. that. would. be i. didn't say i escaped death once but my friend was killed in 2003. i. i. for you ready yes it was. everything we protect is of great value for the
7:40 pm
population. for example. sometimes people take firewood for cooking from the park. well they want to make coal and sell and struggle very much that is absolutely forbidden as much as poaching. in the cultures are often our men and if you try to stop them it gets dangerous a liberal because if they see you 1st they will kill you when the premier. i. think i. owe up. to the side.
7:41 pm
has a riot in rome on gabo he's presenting his book in the school that christians children attend. that day but. let's get started. sit down. with your hundreds i think your teacher for giving me the chance to come and present my book to you 30. we said you are the future of this country and i thought i would make a comic for you with a story to show you the value of your country's busy. god i know what it's a little one but here is the story. this is the hero at least here in the middle.
7:42 pm
east and his name is louis separate louis and down here do you know what that is is obvious casus are. fish right christiane and my lens dog. to stop so many animals from being poached so correct is i'm good with that if you know when john pierre was here the 1st time he came to see us and asked me a lot of questions and now when you look at the book i'm even in it as christiane and the rangers of the dog unit earlier today and of course the other rangers. in the desert they've got lipinski. stock ok i just have one question have any of you ever been confronted with poaching and i. wonder who gets. to see what i'm going to stick on what if the poacher is someone in your family what do you do then. people
7:43 pm
know about the criminal goings on in the park but they turn a blind eye to it often it's family members who are in some way involved in the poaching sometimes out of necessity to scrape together a living. then there is commercial poaching which is a different story in a spectacular campaign christian help to rescue a kidnapped baby gorilla poachers want to sell it on the black market sums of up to $40000.00 run off. the animal has since been living in the only mountain gorilla orphanage in the world in a sink like way center in the veranda national park it was named after a christian young mounting religious whose parents were the victim of poaching can find a new home here. ok

7:46 pm
me at least. i was lucky enough to go to limpy in my 1st year i said back then i'd like to take the dogs to the savannah and from the beginning i was blown away for me it's like paradise it's a place i love to return to it has an amazing 5 and the animals are so quiet and trusting because they've been protected by ranges for years so that out at night you hear hyenas lions leopards for me it's my absolute drink place. for

7:48 pm
i wasn't afraid i just did my job it was only one of me or the commode. for a man in particular we have a park under great threat it's the place the war the rebels but it's also a place with many natural resources which is what causes all the problems if you ask me it's very important to me that we try to save something out of the southeast as well as who was hurt to stay. on that i can't save the whole planet at once but it matters to me that i make my contribution so at least a small part of this planet can recover. in
7:49 pm
switzerland molinar runs farmers' place inclined gitting and a training center for dogs and horses christian informs her daily via social media about what is happening in congo. minor also uses the time for fundraising for the congo hound unit she is responsible for most of the funding. if we meet i grew up with dogs the 1st dog i can remember was a boxer after that we had 2 dacs ones. then i watched this lassie series and in one of the episodes there was a bloodhound called samantha. this samantha had a real character knew exactly what she wanted it was independent but also stabbed
7:50 pm

7:52 pm
francs 50 for a coffee they can live on that for a week. or. 200 but they really like their own country they have their families and friends there and you can learn to move between these 2 cultures so it's really very positive if. iraq. great. poaching between cuba and key but. yes commander. i think. it's a real emergency. clinton that will get the dogs in the car let's go to the rangers have to be prepared to be called in and all times they need to be

physically fit but mental strength can also be crucial for their survival who is better than found. in the 2018 alone 12 ranges were killed in the fight against poachers a total of 175 young men and women have died protecting the park in the last 10 years. to learn to cope with this pressure they regularly train on the real conditions. but this is still to 6 come in. roger. ok we're on our way to mission confirmed 6 roger over.

7:58 pm
the mountain gorillas is even risen by a. theme for the final goal of this whole project is certainly to get my people so independent that they don't need me anymore it's their country it's their park and they have to be able to do the job themselves so they're not there yet they still need my advice to my support but they're making huge progress. and then thin metal and even if marlin stops coming here to the bar i'm going to park i will always need her advice. because she is i could say she's like my foster mother she trains me the right way super and she's

none of them being arrested but i've seen 2 pro-democracy protesters being arrested by the police and even though the full size they are quite aggressive and foul and sometimes and so this claim is also justifiable from pro-democracy protesters and it's also actually heightened tension between the protesters and the police because they think that the police really is really siding with probating group. tomorrow there is another major demonstration planned in hong kong tell us more. so tomorrow these protests actually banned by the police but then. in the past several days you can hear a lot of protestors already saying that they will go anyway and they are also calling for more people to come out and actually. who is trying to apply for the permit to go on to have to morrow they were the organizer who organized the

8:23 pm
merchant vessels try to avoid the affected area all together often the libyan coast guard is the last resort for me and his colleagues this is a frustrating experience and that's because as long as ships are being feast rescue capacities are being cut somewhere the only ones keeping an eye on the water we have to deal with situations like this. we're back on the ground where exactly we cannot say. much here are aware that their organizations activities are being closely monitored since you governments such as italy have started to crack down on rescue n.g.o.s see watch faces public criticism and accusations that they are aiding people smugglers. a claim that most vigorously rejects. but which we would never communicate with people smugglers and no capacity that's simply criminals have made a business with people who suffer and make money out of the 2nd stance that they're so desperate and see no other way than reaching out to them. listen i send it to.

8:33 pm
a small region in italy that is big on making. the 1st he wanted the best way to bring attention to climate change well perhaps by transforming a studio or a soccer stadium into a forest around 300 trees were brought in from nurseries not here of course and planted in a stadium in austria in a bid to make a statement against global warming and deforestation well the artists of this installation believe that if change doesn't happen now in the future we will only be able to see forests in like environment. anyone expecting to see penalties that stadium captain fought will be in for a bit of a surprise there's not much soccer going on in this forest. for his
8:34 pm
project the swiss artist was inspired by a drawing by the austrian artist. called the an ending attraction of nature. basically what i'm doing here is trying to produce a quite radical picture and i'm dealing with an underlying theme that next point now also have both of us independently of each other and that's perception. how do we deal with our perceived nature. visitors are not allowed to touch or enter the forest only look at. man wanted to create a warning monument about the climate crisis it took him 6 years to realize the 4 forest project. he worked together with the swiss landscape architect and so in the.
8:35 pm
ninety's and it's a single these are the difference bases here. those there are the black pines you know. they've been replanted 16 times it's a. 199 trees were planted between the goalposts creating a mixed forest which has become the bike rare in europe these days the trees were located in various german french and italian nurseries some of them were 50 years old all the trees had been transplanted several times so they could cope before being transported the roots were pruned and bound together into a ball then they were fixed into the ground thus the trees will survive without damage to the roots. you know what sorts of things and so it was very difficult for me to find a proportion to the stadium because at 1st i couldn't imagine how it would be. so then i imagined footballers playing there about 1.8 meters tall on average and then
8:36 pm
i imagine them passing balls to each other long shots shots. and the stadium boasts $30000.00 seats and just as many ways of seeing the forest visitors to the forest can either sit or wander around the rows of. mugs whose artworks also feature in new york's museum of modern art is the visionary who imagined a stadium forest over 40 years ago. but his was not a wild mixed forest. but if you see a story that great that the forest is different from mine on my way over here i was really scared that they had managed to capture my forest but now. i'm really glad that they do it. in the photo see nice get off. the
8:37 pm
artwork was financed privately including by collectors and the swiss fun. clouds littman had discovered the stadium in 2013 and persuaded the city of clapping for it to agree to his idea. the project has both supporters and critics say. it's exactly what we need in order to think about the climate change problem that we have right now it shocks i think it's nonsense to be honest this doesn't belong in a football stadium just for this and it's a warning monument it's huge parts of the amazon forest her birth down recently because of deforestation and this project shows how important a forest and its function is. there are 2 different jumpers artisans. for forest is a sustainable project visitors can enjoy until the end of october the stadium opens till late at night afterwards the trees will be transplanted again and will set down their roots not far away for the long term. it's that time of year
8:38 pm
again when cars take center stage at the international auto show in frankfurt now much of the focus is on promoting electric cars but what do you do if you have a vintage vehicle that still runs on an old catalytic converter well even these old cars are being brought into the era of electric mobility. not all vintage cars have to be noisy and smelly duke is enjoying a new experience his steam powered car from 1938 now has an electric motor. this car is 80 years old and now it's experiencing a revival we can enjoy the landscape very quietly my intention is not to change the climate with my car i couldn't do that but i'm sending out a signal. showing people that it is possible to make changes if you really want to
8:39 pm
. could this become a trend. and has developed a business model in vincent not far from hamburg in northern germany old cars are equipped with modern technology each model is individually fitted with the right components such a conversion can cost up to 100000 euros. they're enthusiastic who really want to drive fully electric cars but there was nothing on offer except a boring tesla which is like a moving i pad that's how we began in 2015 for people who wanted a car that they really liked. all of these models are unique. but not everyone is convinced about retrofitting vintage cars. drives then stick turiya from 894 that makes it one of the oldest cars in the world he can't imagine fitting it with an electric motor. it would be more than
8:40 pm
a sin it would be. irresponsible ignorance no odds and it would be showing disrespect for the past simply replacing it with something new we are not loyal you would be castrating the vehicle so to speak. for many collectors these cars are an investment and their value is measured by how close they are to the original. concept and younger from berlin has created an index to determine how the price of a car should be evaluated it. can see paris in principle the value of a vintage car would sink because it would no longer be historical if you can a value is only particularly high if a car still boasts the original engine and original gear unit. but doesn't an old car with a new motor remain an old car for collectors such as philip but johnny absolutely not he would never swap the gasoline engine from his 1970 s. b.m.w.
8:41 pm
. but redefining it out of that would be like taking out the car's heart. and the engine is the heart of the b.m.w. it would be like hauling it out and it would be removing the car's arteries and probably it sold to. that's how it's done for them. and he's not worried about the fact that gasoline engines might eventually be banned. thank god it's making its if the cars with gasoline engines are banned and i'll just let it stand somewhere. and it'll be of cultural value and just stay in one place. would. be hard to imagine all those that's what i like about old cars is that they represent a certain period in time and i can experience the history firsthand i'm not in a museum i can really feel how it was at the time just would not support you don't need to rattle the engine as far you can still feel how it was to drive with the springs the imprecise steering and the way it looks to.
8:42 pm
so the engine no longer has to rattle it can simply permit thanks to the motors even vintage cars can be state of the art. time now to take a trip and europe is great for weekend getaways but how do you decide what to do when you only have a couple days to sightsee well leave it up to me to give you some tips on my latest perfect weekend away i visited iceland capital reykjavik and its surroundings now aside from discovering amazing landscapes and even going horseback riding i discovered some pop up surprises as well. yoga in the middle of reykjavik it's very cold but that doesn't stop icelanders or me from heading
