1:05 pm
already clashes today but how big will this become you know organize this will become and i think also the palestinian leadership on both sides hamas and fatah as they're also under pressure because they have been fighting each other for the past and use it didn't deliver nothing as well to their people so it's a question you're only the next days will tell us how big this will become this will become and if this call for a third intifada to be headed by the people. trying to claim or interest alone thank you. let's get a quick check now of some other stories that have been making news around the world with only two weeks to go until catalonia holds fresh elections more than forty thousand pro cattle and protesters have gathered in brussels to urge the e.u. to support their drive for independence from spain they're also voicing support for their deposed leader carlos pushed among he has said that he will stay in belgium because he fears arrest if he returns to spain australia's parliament has passed

1:07 pm
a speech at the conference schultz apologized for the devastating defeat that the social democrats suffered at the polls and said that the party had lost its course during the last few years he's standing for reelection as party chief. fitted sure something is also also responsible for our party we are responsible for what has happened we can't blame it on uncle america or the grand coalition the neo liberals or the media we are the ones to blame we have to reinvent ourselves them we will become strong again we are going to start. for more let's bring in our political correspondent thomas carroll who is standing by with the very latest from that s.p.v. party convention we just heard a bit of schulz's speech there tell us how have his words gone down and what are his chances of convincing party members to opt for coalition talks. he apologized but we just. missed the shows started to talk about shaping policy
1:08 pm
asking delegates asking party members also to be brave and that was in a way how he introduced his proposal to be able to have talks open talks as he put them with the conservatives to see whether there is a possibility of forming a new grand coalition he phrased it in a way that made it clear that it is not an automatic decision that they will join a grand coalition he mentioned the possibility of having open and date talks open results so that's the way asked and he presented his proposal the proposed that will also be debated here later today how it came down to where some members of the favor that's why did talking not least to the conservatives something that they should recuse off the german president but this time i asked mr schultz of those so there are those who say that the coalition should be rejected from the start that they may be willing to go into negotiations but that those negotiations should make clear that the social democrats will no into their will not enter
1:09 pm
a new round when they. come out in the case that the party decides not to take up coalition talks which has i'm going michael sitting there what is that likely to mean for scholz and has the leadership there the party. why would such a be the moment for mr shows especially after what we're hearing just now when he's asking about this possibility of having this open talks there are however all the possibilities where the s.p.d. the social democrats could play a role in a future government for example if there's a minority coalition a minority government led by the conservatives where the social democrats play a minor role for example by tolerating certain proposals in areas so that's something else that's being discussed here and that's one of the reasons why martin shows said that the results all. the rope on the floor to dos but now the tell it got support is to have those talks in the conservative vote their proposals on
1:10 pm
areas like europe will social justice even watch the stock form the s.p.d. might not join another government now he's just wrapped up his speech and as we can hear resoundingly applause there for whatever it is that he was saying so perhaps that's a bit of a gauge also in terms of his support among party members if they do indeed vote for a new grand coalition where i'm going marco see to give c.s.u. is this just business as usual tomas. writes not unusual you mention the up close yet not unusual that progeny leaders when they do these. speeches get this round of applause at the end although it is obviously important to stress that this is being a quite a long route over those now you ask about what they will be business as usual that something else starts all the party leaders have addressed saying if we join it that it could be business as usual they have to be changes for example when it comes to europe most social europe reforms in europe you also mentioned the
1:11 pm
environment you also mentioned social topics whereas employment talk pages the thing that got so it was a clear message from opt in she was saying even if we join something that's being discussed now they don't want it to be business as usual business as it was four years ago thomas barrow and peter headquarters thank you. it's time now for business news with chris tucker who joins us here on the set and we're talking a little bit more about volkswagen an employee is going to jail over days ok that's right sara the second one actually over these the gate scandal and it is a hefty sentence seven years behind bars that's the price all of us mint has to pay for lying to consumers is false flag and senior executives also find four hundred thousand dollars over his role in the company's massive emissions cheating scandal as requested by prosecutors both penalties represent the maximum that the u.s. court could have handed down. this wednesday was perhaps the worst day of all of

handing over eight turkish servicemen who fled to greece last year after a coup so this is put the government in a very awkward position here and we may be seeing a bruising encounter in the next kind of day or or so because of these controversial statements but i mean ultimately the hope was to have an improvement in relations there how will a sick is that prospect would you say. well absolutely i mean as i said before the greeks do want to see a continued discussion between greece and turkey despite these lingering differences they also were hoping to kind of help turkey kind of anchor its way back to the west as it as we've seen it kind of drift more towards russia and iran and we were expecting some some some strong support from the
