10:01 am
lengths to hide their identity. and as temperatures hit new highs in europe we find out what people are doing to cool down and we ask if climate change is to blame for the extreme weather. i'm going to have you with us two days after historic elections in zimbabwe the country's electoral commission says the ruling zanu p.f. party has won the most seats in parliament now partial results show zanu p.f. has picked up one hundred ninety seats in the nation's two hundred ten member assembly that's compared to just forty one for the opposition movement for democratic change or m.d.c. the remaining seats have yet to be announced along with the victor of the country's presidential poll monday's vote was the first since robert mugabe was ousted after thirty seven years in power. and let's bring in detroit news melanie de ball she's
10:02 am
covering the election for us from zimbabwe from harare there nonny good to see what zanu p.f. saying about these results. of has not come out yet with an official statement but of course you can imagine that they must be very happy to have the hundred and nine seats effie's as you said in parliament they'll be more results coming out so we can expect them to get even more seats which means for them they'll be the ones doing the policy making and of course this is also an indicator on who is gone away in the presidency right now it looks like emerson monica will continue running the country we don't have the final results of that yet of course we'll have to wait a few more days but that will keep you updated on the square and melanie you know what about the opposition the m.d.c. has accused the zanu p.f. of stealing the selection will they accept these results now that the electoral commission has spoken. it looks really likely they will
10:03 am
not accept the results they have actually taken the streets yesterday during the day and in the evening together with their supporters claiming victory we think that to me says still seems obvious he's pretending to be confident that he will be able to win the presidency we can tell that yes it looks like from the votes from the national assembly that amazon back will win the presidency but the m.d.c. might not accept that result as you've seen with with them going on the streets yesterday it will be a difficult process for them though going to the courts and fighting the result and melanie one can we expect results on the presidential election. in the constitution says they have to let us know by it's saturday five days after the vote has been caused but the results are trickling in faster than a lot of the journey. thinking here so we could already know the next president
10:04 am
maybe later today or tomorrow did he use melanie crow reporting for us from harare moni thank you very much. now to a change in germany's immigration laws that set to take effect today starting today some refugees can apply to bring their immediate relatives to the country in two thousand and sixteen the german government suspended family reunification to slow down the number of migrants arriving here now what is left of that cap we need a syrian refugee who hopes that the new ruling will reunite him with his wife and daughter. needs are a lot more last look his wife and daughter in the eyes in august twenty fifteen allow our is a lawyer his name is on the syrian government blacklist he had no choice but to flee. or if i know my daughter but she doesn't know me she calls me uncle or by first name is. his daughter
10:05 am
was two months old when he fled back then they started not realize it would be the last time they were together for many years he wasn't able to take much with him when he left this precious photo with his daughter his wedding portrait a photo of his home village from syria he fled to turkey and from there he went by boat to greece then along the balkan route. in september twenty fifteen here in germany he has called his wife every day since they parted and every day she has sent him a picture of their daughter. he wants his wife and daughter to join him in germany but in march of twenty sixteen the german government stopped allowing refugees to bring their families into the country. and it's hard to describe that your daughter is growing up without you. it's pretty
10:06 am
painful. only those who've been through themselves know how bad it is about people's families. and these are has long been waiting for the rules to change again he hopes his wife will be given an appointment at the german embassy in lebanon this month these are things that might help that he's attended all his german classes and integrated well. i have my wife and my daughter can come. on that my daughter complained here. during the long waiting period i made a great become integrated here. i worked for one year as a security guard and i believe that my family and i can become well integrated here and these are our longs to see his family again but he's worried about how much longer it might take he's waited three years and it's still unclear when they'll be
10:07 am
reunited. and we have our political correspondent kate brady with us to tell us more about this change hi kay thank you for joining us who is this going to apply to all largely this is going to affect many syrian refugees who have basically if they sing please anyone who has in germany is described as subsidiary protection and that means basically anyone who for any asylum seekers who fall short of being granted full asylum so and. indefinite stay in germany so usually this is asylum seekers who are fleeing civil war for example one of the this has caused so much controversy in germany well this was a huge taken point earlier on in the year when the new government was trying to put together its new coalition and of course the conservatives were very much against the kind of increasing any more numbers of refugees arriving in germany and then of course between parties is still a few parts of issues of contention between the parties because this is going to
10:08 am
really apply to people who can apply for it will be refugee spouses married minus parents of minors all of whom already have a relative living in germany who has already been granted subsidiary protection for the green party and the left for example they don't see this is going far enough for example the. exceptions that they don't include siblings so there are still some issues that have been decided upon between the parties are still going to become an issue it was not the only change in immigration rules to talk about kate because germany's also to open its first refugee holding facilities with several so-called anchor centers set to open in the state of bavaria this is part of the german interior minister horse a horse has disputed plans to reduce the number of migrants arriving here and these anchor centers as they've been dubbed are designed to speed up asylum processing the aim is for each case to be decided within eighteen months asylum seekers who
10:09 am
claims are rejected would then be deported from the centers and critics say concentrating so many asylum seekers in one place could hinder and hinder rather integration and lead to unrest. so how much of this is actually a change in the way germany is treating asylum seekers who arrive here well so far silent seekers who are arriving in germany would be dealt with on a local level between. local authorities and the idea is now at least the main aim is to use these so-called and concentric centers to speed up that process so from now on in these seven senses which are opening today they can house up to fifteen hundred asylum seekers and the entire process will take place there so that will be their application when they first arrive a decision as to whether or not they will be granted asylum and then if they in that case they are granted asylum then they will also be directly deported from these centers as well and again the opposition parties have been critical why is
10:10 am
that exactly it's really this question of many people have dubbed these so called and centers centers as being like a jail of course the people stay in that the asylum seekers are allowed to leave but they do have to live there and there are also concerns that this is really going to hinder integration of course in the meantime it can take up to eighteen months for an application to go through and then be granted and in the meantime of course there is that concern that these asylum seekers could have already been enrolled on a german course or kind of integration into local society and that's quite difficult when they're in these centers all right our political correspondent kate brady thank you for breaking down these changes to the immigration rules for us. now activists in denmark and denmark are planning to stage protests today against a new law banning muslim face veil sarnie cops the government says the cops prevent women from integrating into danish society but critics say the law violates a woman's right to express her identity we met one woman who says the ban is taking
10:11 am
away her choice. than to man it's not just handing out flyers to fight for her faith twelve years ago she made the decision to bail her face but from now on she'll be breaking the law. i feel very disappointed i feel like i thought we lived in a free society where people can believe what they want and they can wear whatever they want as long as they don't hurt other people born in denmark and raced by turkish parents sarah and her fellow activists are complaining while they still can trying to win support for a demonstration and they're getting that support i think it's a violation of human rights just one other time when men are deciding what women are supposed to be wearing i think you kind of pushing them or away from society and it's important that. you accept that there there's like a cultural difference in parliament sara has an appointment with one of the
10:12 am
initiators of the ben metz for leader of the governing liberal party is convinced that the cop has to be prohibited even though fewer than two hundred women are affected they find no middle ground. you're very ignorant about how you can share we are all over the loss of this as i'm saying we don't why i'm saying we love it why we need to electroplate against the values i'm saying we live in denmark it's very sad in denmark we have the freedom of religion. the discussion escalates into an argument formats the kneecaps stance for the oppression of women that's why he thinks it should be banned. because the chap on the garments of that thought all instruments. to an end and that end is so for control of women and the not of occasion of the female gender and we
10:13 am
want to fight that the ban on face coverings is one of several laws the government says it has introduced to integrate immigrants some critics say it will only divide society further and in the end to veils are rarely seen in the streets of denmark. sero describes the makeup as a sign of religious humility but if she remains faithful to her believes she faces a difficult future in denmark her ideal of religious freedom. within her own four walls. now to some other stories making headlines around the world a passenger plane has crashed during takeoff in northern mexico authorities say all one hundred three people on board survived but dozens are injured some of them seriously local authorities say a gust of wind hit the aircraft as it took off during a heavy storm causing it to speed and hit the ground. blueprints for three d. guns will no longer be made available online in the united states that's after a u.s. judge blocked their publication and
