10:02 pm
i'm off to a review. on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome with just under a month to go before britain's scheduled exit from the european union prime minister boris johnson is telling brussels his latest brights that proposal is his final offer johnson unveiled his plan today at his conservative party's conference in manchester england is hoping that it will allow him to finally clinch a deal with the e.u. to allow an orderly departure from the european union but jobs his latest proposals they have already received a cool reception in brussels. supporters waiting in line in manchester to get a glimpse of boris johnson it was the prime minister's 1st comprehensive speech since he took office and the high point of the conservative party conference what he had to say in the breaks of talks with the e.u. was hotly anticipated today in brussels we all taping i believe
10:03 pm
a constructive and reasonable proposals which provide a compromise for both sides top of johnson's list was the so-called irish backstop and the issue of how to prevent a hard border post breaks between the republic of ireland a northern ireland the british government as opposed to the backstop in its present form johnson said under his proposal there would be few customs checks on goods moving between northern ireland and the republic of ireland. britain's breaks that negotiators are delivered to proposals in person to brussels german reaction has been to say it will consider the proposals in detail 1st before commenting. events forcefully we will take a close look at the suggestions i cannot say anything more about that today because we have agreed to evaluate the issue amongst ourselves 1st for us it's very important that the 27 member states are unified on this issue they have trusted
10:04 pm
michele and we will continue to discuss the matter. boris johnson has made it clear that britain is expecting the e.u. to make concessions the ball is now in the e.u.'s court our eve correspondent gay or not as he is assessing whether the european union will accept boris johnson's proposals and he said that's what he thinks. after months and months of break that deadlock in brussels there finally seems to be ward off positive advances even progress the u.k. has made the compromise in the new proposal that northern ireland could remain part of the internal market in other words some products from mainland u.k. could no longer after following e.u. regulations go into northern ireland a number of problems however the head of the european commission jungle juncker pointed out remain and they need to be tackled for instance the fact that the u.k. wants to withdraw entirely including northern ireland from the custom your customs
10:05 pm
union which creates big problems for the republic of ireland which is you member state and so far the republic of ireland had full rock solid support from the other your member states so 2 things we need to look out for now what does the republic of ireland make of this new proposals and what do e.u. nico she ate hers make of the proposal they now have to decide whether this u.k. proposal that is now on the table could become a new landing zone for a deal to prevent a heart breaks it was gave about this they're reporting in brussels u.s. president truong has unleashed a 15 minute tirade at his political opponents during a white house photo session with the visiting president of finland he's particularly scathing about house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff here's part of what trump said adam schiff he's a lowlife he should be forced to resign and frankly they should look at him for
10:06 pm
treason because he is making up the words of the president of the united states not only words but the meaning and it's a disgrace that should not be allowed to happen here. now trump was referring to a statement in which shift paraphrased the gist of a phone call between trump and ukraine's president in which democrats say trump abused his office in a separate news conference and shift said the president's attacks did nothing to change the facts surrounding the phone call. for more now let's go to our washington bureau chief alexander phenomena she is standing by at the white house good evening to you alexandra so 2 days ago trump called for civil war or predicted that could happen today he called this impeachment inquiry a coup and he managed to insult nancy pelosi adam schiff the media as well as the whistleblower so it seems that we've got a president going from one outlandish comment to the next.
10:07 pm
well yes it was really a remarkable day here at the white house because the president's men are seemed to be very very combative as we could see during this private press conference when he was ranting and raving about the impeachment inquiry and he was attacking us reporters accusing us of being fake news and being corrupt and in particular he attacked one of my colleagues jeff mason who just was trying to follow up on his question there was only one moment during this press conference we're trying seems to have sort of last joyful moment when he talked about shift the chairman of the house intelligence committee because it was revealed today that the democrats had learned about the whistle blower's concerns before this individual filed its complaint. or her complaint and for trump therefore it was clear
10:08 pm
that adam schiff helped write this in the complaint he made this accusation without having presented and the and the proof and adam schiff of course did night this accusation yeah that's exactly right it's the committee also saying that the whistleblower just was seeking guidance as this complaint was being here let's talk about the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o today for the 1st time he admitted that he was on their july 23rd phone call between president and the ukrainian president. do we know alexandra why did come forward a week ago and let the world know that he was on that phone call. well i don't have any other explanation as to say that if you believe that the phone call is perfect it's totally fine then why not admit it and secretary pump ale
10:09 pm
dodge questions about this phone call twice just talking about it's to complain that whistleblowers complain that he is and has not read so far that he doesn't really have any knowledge of so he was dodging this question and now we have to say he has become one of the major witnesses in the impeachment inquiry and i was in the let's talk a little bit about where public opinion is right now we want to show viewers tweets that president drop in that tweet we can see a picture of the united states and it says try to impeach this most of the united states is read their meaning republican meaning that they voted for trouble. is public opinion changing are people now starting to think that impeachment is the right thing to do. yes that's true that public opinion
10:10 pm
seems to be changing according to the us poll and now for the very 1st time more votes say that they are in favor of pietschmann proceedings more voters will say that the open impeachment proceedings we are still talking about $46.00 to $43.00 versus 43 percent but this is a very remarkable development indeed it is significant swing there that's for sure and the center for nominee at the white house with the latest on the impeachment saga there surrounding president draw of xander thank you. here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world that u.s. is in there bernie sanders has canceled events in his presidential campaign after undergoing heart surgery for a blocked artery it's campaign says that 2 stents were successfully inserted into his heart after he experienced chest pains a 78 year old is a front runner for the democratic nomination to run against president next year

10:12 pm
a short while ago we understand security forces prevented a group of protesters from storming baghdad airport is the latest public display of anger against the prime minister and his government demonstrators are angry over corruption and lack of basic necessities. back to the burning for a 2nd day in a row anti-government protests are disrupting life in the city. and they have turned violent. several people have been reported hundreds injured in the clashes on wednesday 2 security forces attempted to disperse protesting crowds with tear gas and even life ammunition. in some areas protesters blocked off back to main streets it's not the 1st time iraqis have taken to the streets since up till mosty was elected as the country's prime minister last year their demands are clear. about 3 generation always want is to live and nothing
10:13 pm
else we want to live just like the rest of the world we want very basic rights electricity water employment and medicine. we don't want power money or property not all we ask for is to live and i have pricked to eat but this government is shooting at the crowd and killing people. that know it's. our demands we want work we want to work if they do not want to treat us as iraqis then tell us we are not iraqis and we'll find other nationalities and migrate to other countries but it. protests are now spreading to other cities in iraq too with the death toll among the demonstrators likely to rise. it has been exactly one years since the solti journalist in washington post columnist. was murdered inside the salty consulate in istanbul turkey today supporters of the show
10:14 pm
called for justice at a memorial event in stamboul a united nations investigation found what it calls credible evidence linking saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon to the murder but a year later no one has been brought to justice for the killing. 1 14 pm friends and family marked the time because showed she was last seen alive a moment of silence to commemorate his murder and the sense of a crime gone unpunished in the years since i still feel justice i want to know what's happened to he's body i once he's prince of the releases from jail i want those in power i hold accountable for day actions. 1 14 pm one year ago a c.c.t.v. camera captured shoji walking into the saudi consulate in istanbul his body is believed to have been dismembered and disposed of saudi arabia initially hampered
10:15 pm
turkish efforts to investigate but i think are a had audio recordings of exactly what happened turkey also released c.c.t.v. footage of 15 saudi government agents arriving in istanbul on the day of the killing and leaving just hours later among them a top adviser to saudi crown prince mohamed bin. the us and us kalamata old d.w. that left little doubt was conducted and done by state officials say it used it create lined upon state and resources. that came into. a private chat with diplomatic clearance the murderer drew global condemnation. denied all involvement in the killing recently he gave a us t.v. interview defending himself in the run up to the anniversary because shows he's fiance had to change told that was a calculated move. these statements made at this particular time seem like an
10:16 pm
attempt to quell pressure from the public mohammed bin soundman said he accepts responsibility but at the same time he says he didn't know anything about it and in doing so he's trying to dodge responsibility. the saudis have officially blamed rogue elements instead and put 11 people on trial for the murder amnesty international told d.w. it sees little value in that. there is. a trial process apparently going on in saudi arabia now but lots of the most basic spans of independence and due process what needs to happen is for an international investigation under the auspices of the un secretary general that has you know qualified criminal investigators who were able to speak to all the suspects to go to all the crime scenes to uncover all the evidence and only then will we get answers to these crucial questions the saudis have powerful allies as they stonewall any inquiries
10:17 pm
despite placing some sanctions on saudi officials washington has been reluctant to take things further but show she's fiance and his friends say wednesday's memorial was a message they want to ensure the murderers are punished and among those attending today's memorial ceremony in istanbul was the un's topic spurred on extra judicial killings the woman who led the investigation concluding that the saudi crown prince may have been involved in the killing the w correspondent yulia hawn talked to her about her efforts to bring peace killers to justice. and yes calamari you have let the un's investigation into the killing of the shocked g. and you say you found credible evidence linking saudi crown prince mohammed bin some on to the murder what exactly are these links. i have found. evidence that the killing of mr cash is
10:18 pm
extrajudicial executions for which the state of saudi arabia is responsible what does that mean the state to ease a big institution whenever a state is empty kid today into a killing the next step is to investigate the chain of command to deter me in the relationship between those that the pitch richard the crime and those that ordered the crime that chain of command so far has not been investigated so what do you make of the crown prince's recent remarks in an interview he said he bore fool responsibility for the killing but he didn't order it yes i have heard that comment and i have a 2 reaction to it the 1st is that for me when. mohammed bin sandman we called nice is a responsibility as kweisi head of state he also amply city and by implication we called nice that the killing of mr cash was a state killing something that so far the authorities systematically refused and
10:19 pm
criticize me for finding that the state of saudi arabia was responsible for the killing the 2nd reaction is less positive. that ynys comments are crown prince takes great pains creating a distance between himself over there on top and the crimes down there at the bottom he's creating a sense of distance she's arguing look the state is be you know i cannot be held accountable for everything that he. being done within the state that's what he's that's one of the message he's trying to communicate and it is a tepee cool p.r. message that head of companies we put forward whenever their companies are in trouble are you satisfied with the international community's reactions to you'll find no i am not satisfied so far with the way.
10:20 pm
the executives the governments of many countries around the world responded to to my findings i think they are either looking at each other as thinking which who is going to take the 1st step all they are attempting to return to business as usual that's why in my speech today i have called on the media to continue shining the light to pull ceased to and ceased to examine. to to speak up and to do so for jamal and to do so for all the drama at least that tucker and he and prison and for those that have been killed. thank you very much. are going to go to hong kong where all the chinese government has reportedly found a way to punish protestors for their actions with wide reaching consequences

the to me nation. and we've got some breaking news coming in the united states says that it will impose new tariffs on european products beginning october 18th a decision follows a world trade organization ruling that gives washington the right to impose the levies in retaliation for european subsidies to aerospace firm air bus u.s. trade officials are confirming that washington will impose a 10 percent tax on aircraft coming from the european union beginning this month we'll have more on that story as details come in all right what do you think of cheerleaders well there's been a controversial decision here in berlin and it is fueling a debate over sexism sports feminism and yes cheerleaders one of germany's most successful basketball teams alba berlin has gotten rid of its cheerleading squad the team's managing director saying that cheerleader cheerleading is no longer
10:25 pm
suited for our times but that move has triggered a backlash t w news met a group of cheerleaders who are worried over that decision. these cheerleaders happen practicing for months if not years to be able to do this they're passionate about what they do and many areas hate it when people underestimate them and their athletic ability. by a smile or not in my opinion cheerleading requires all the things that a competitive sport demands discipline ambition and a certain amount of routine you have to give it your all practice your teen and keep on exercising you. had to imagine your. union pal and started she living at other bilin one of germany's most successful basketball teams. the team has now decided to drop that she dances during breaks and i'll bust gapes the

10:27 pm
the dance routines as our bus just one did many see the alba decision to drop that she knew this was a setback for the sport. i. it's a pity for the dancers because have to learn the choreography isn't performing in each game but centers for the goddess are for them it's a real punch and there is some slack and because they started that's to say we don't want you anymore if you don't fit in with the modern edgeways as. they are focused on the future and that's training for the german championship at to 5 times a week they want to be 1st. and that's a sport all right after a short break i'll be back to take you through the day stick around for that.
