4:02 pm
was able to go ahead with his briefing here's what he had to say on today's a day of mourning mourning over democracy it is a big day because we are seeing in repeats or what we saw during the. depreciation of people as we are reading of the will of the people. and that was nelson chamisa there the opposition leader speaking a short while ago at a press conference in harare of course one of many korea dead ball joins me now from harare melody the opposition leader there we just heard nelson chamisa he also said at that press conference that this is a day of mourning for democracy what is he talking about that's right terry it's been saying you know it's different nations and the liberation on the street it's quite the opposite this just the day of sadness he was saying that his vote with stone and brutally and deliberately and now at night when people could not go
4:03 pm
on the streets and raise their voices he's been saying that the m.d.c. has for true democracy and what they were met with was good and intimidation and repression and he has also been planning that is that of p.f. is trying to destroy the evidence that he has that he has one vote he said it was for rigging but it was way way manipulating the results and thinking about that we still haven't seen the numbers that he is talking about we cannot confirm his claim yet now since the election we've seen norm protesters being killed and a press conference a news conference being broken up by security forces melanie you've been watching what's been going on there the last few days do you get the impression that the press and the opposition are being intimidated by the government forces. it definitely feels that there's a bit like that and the biggest question that we just have is why is this happening
4:04 pm
it just doesn't really seem to make sense i mean just now here put these offices went on to riot gear that were hindering the peaceful press conference by the opposition and jim the couldn't get in one post and this was even beaten up by police so if it feels like an intimidation of both the opposition and the press and you know why did they intervene on the who's come on then the question is also why is it watered by someone or was it just the police doing it by themselves we don't have the onset to it if they were ordered by the senate p.f. which could be a possibility but which we can not confirm then the question is what is an appeal if so it's got if they have officially won the vote what is it that they want. the international monitors have raised doubts about the fairness of this election the opposition m.d.c. have said they do not accept the results how can you see with nelson show me as a launch
4:05 pm
a challenge well they were to figure out the official way they would have to go to court some interesting you say yesterday before the vote was announced what the results were out he said that he would not go to court but what are the money just like walking into the lion's den and he was not going to have himself as a mail to the lion because the judiciary is known to impartial but he was just now saying at the press conference that he will challenge the results and that he will use old legal and constitutional confusional ways open to him so this could mean that he goes to court and he even said if he goes to court it should be easy because it's really really easy to prove that the damage yet has been this case that the members again that's not something that we can verify well but i thank you very much for bringing us up to date that was our correspondent melanie curry a ball there joining us from harare. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world today senior u.s.

4:09 pm
parliament but had to make up for germans consider health and pension policies among the most important issues to be taken care of by their government so parliament after. september. well to talk about this latest polling and i'm joined now in our studio by d.w. political correspondent simon young hi simon a lot to talk about there a lot of different topics addressed in this polling data let's start with racism and. he of course and he's the guy who resigned from the german national soccer squad following the world cup in his resignation statement he said he was the target of discrimination and the case has attracted massive media attention in germany how has story influenced the discussion about racism in germany well of course. always gets people talking specially the world cup so there's been an awful
4:10 pm
lot of tool and media coverage of this issue since the message resignation and the allegations that he made around that particularly we've seen in the media but also on social media particularly with this hash tag me too with germans talking about germans with a migration background talking about identities that they have to deal with and you know a lot of anecdotal evidence of everyday racism people being turned down for a job so are apartments and struggling with that kind of thing so that's why you've got government ministers also calling for germany widely to get a grip on this issue as it's now being to really address racism wherever they see it now the new poll shows that about two thirds of germans feel that racism is a problem in their country can you put that figure into context for us or racist tendencies increasing in terms well because as you said it's
4:11 pm
a complex issue and it depends kind of what you mean by racism we talk about xenophobia. i think certainly they are more out in the open in the last few years particularly with the rise of. the rand he is lohm movement street movement that we've seen in the roys of the far right a f.t. . party and so on there's a lot more talk about you know who belongs in germany and who doesn't so there's that another thing that comes up in this poll these peoples no surprise really know immigrants who haven't been here for very long are not very well integrated so that's what you'd expect but of course if there's a link between that perception and people feeling that they can sort of say you know you don't belong in this country then that fits with the fact the cause that more than a million new migrants of arrived in germany over the last three years we also got some polling data there just very quickly we saw that the that the parties in chancellor merkel's governing coalition if they were up for election today they
4:12 pm
wouldn't have a majority in parliament anymore what's behind the loss of support for the conservatives and the social democrats well there's a couple of things is just over a month ago since the conservative part of the government and americans part was tearing itself apart with divisions over the future of migration policy that was the very conservatives threatening to bring down the government so that was certainly one thing the social democrats in a process of regrouping off to a bad election result so both parties face the struggles some thank you so much some young from our political desk. now has apple apple has indeed hit the trillion dollar mark hell in the can it stay that way that's the question isn't it terry at the moment it looks like apple will slip in and out of the trillion dollar territory in the next few days nevertheless it's still a massive feat and it was bumpus second quarter results that increased demand and helped to breach that all important barrier. the share price hit two hundred seven

4:22 pm
living in tents today is the four senators who have heeded genocide and until today both more than three thousand c.c.t. must be women heroes and in captivity and somehow international community unfortunately in my point of view they haven't done. enough it's true that many countries like germany canada australia they have brought easy it is to give them support but what should be done it's not enough ok percent if he is even still living in tents. they cannot go back to center to their homes for different reasons let me ask you muslims what your reason is that because the safety and security incentives are it's not stable. people cannot go back to their homes it's almost been four years to the forty's that they leave their homes. there is a lot of politico conflicts the basic services education have
4:23 pm
is not provided ok like you just interrupt you for a moment i just want to ask you another question if you don't mind our report showed smugglers returning the women to their families just wondering why why smugglers are taking that way it why international aid organizations wouldn't be involved in that is well well this is the question that we need a community have us also international community unfortunately that knowledge until today they haven't tried to be women and there's an interim who was in captivity this when the time the international community failed to bring them back to give them then you see it is by themselves or by local governments they try to solve them so here again i hope that our voices will be hear from you can union from germany from muslim countries to start up a team to try to bring that one who is still in captivity ok fortunately thank you
4:24 pm
so much. seems so i'm on there he was joining us from the city of s. and here in germany thank you for talking with us thank you very much. now to sweden where erin air song made headlines last week when she staged one woman protest that stopped the deportation of an asylum seeker back to ghana. was aboard a plane about to take off from go to ball but she refused to take her seat preventing the plane from taking off she live streamed her actions and earned plaudits for her bravery d.w. caught up with the young activist. when ellen asked and needs friends these days to protest dominates the conversation. people are still congratulating her for her actions by refusing to take a seat on a plane the twenty one year old student temporarily stopped deportation to
4:25 pm
afghanistan that. there are live video from the plane made international headlines as soon wanted to draw attention to what she feels is sweden's inhumane asylum policy. giving the correct legal procedure that they have the right to we are the government and the migration office are doing so much things that possibly can just to make sure that they deport and react as many people as possible. bhasin is part of an organization that looks after young refugees from afghanistan who arrived in sweden without their families. her protest is giving them hope. i also should have been deported i lodge an appeal against i've been waiting a year for a decision it might even take another year. if i get deported then lived in sweden
4:26 pm
for four years i really don't know how i would react to the. essence actions have further fueled the debate on asylum and immigration in sweden a topic that is taking center stage as the country heads to elections in september views are becoming more polarized. the next government should put a stop to immigration. and give money we need immigration in sweden because we need the workers i will certainly not vote for any party that is against refugees and immigration. the main opposition party the conservative moderate party is outraged over the acclaim and has received. here it's not the government that decides on deportation but the courts it's. completed. and it's not acceptable for individuals to defy court decisions. this
4:27 pm
route and since says she won't stop fighting sweden's deportations of afghans or her work with refugees. so even if we get this stuff think the potations that's going to stand then probably a still together and i hope so because they are part of my life now. and then she leaves for an interview with a british radio station the debate over deportations continues in part because of a lean air soon. you're watching d.w. news there's much more to come stay with us. to satisfy russian madagascar. general managers work for starvation wages. risking their lives in illegal mines. driven by poverty cell so

4:30 pm
nelson chamisa said his party had evidence of election fraud and would challenge the outcome in court. then a new survey in germany has backed the issue raised by football star measured to zero almost two thirds of germans agreed with the residual that the country has a racism problem. india has been rocked by a wave of mob lynchings across the country in recent months more than twenty people have died after viral rumors about child kidnappers circulated on the messaging service whatsapp the indian government has set up a committee to try to curb the murders in some areas local law enforcement officials have started their own campaigns are in need of correspondents only follow the travel to the western state of maharashtra to try to find out. it isn't every day that this village sees gifts like these. on a special mission dispelling vital freighted what's that kills people across the
4:31 pm
country not the mob ought to be the daughter who's also trained lawyer is the brains behind the campaign he appeals to the crowd to not be fooled by fake news of the internet and use their own mind to judge what's true or false. misleading videos like this one which claim to children have gone by. the voices peeves disguised as beggars harvested the. already posh explains how the video was adopted to create. another clip suggests this woman is an outsider and was trying to abducted that's why she was beaten up. fake news like this is spreading like wildfire in india it is a major problem because these are very close knit communities where almost everyone tends to know each other the spread and acceleration of this news can be very very quick but the fact that it is about child lifting is something for primal something so provocative that your child could be taken away from you i scarcely think there
4:32 pm
is a greater fear than that for any family or any parent. that that can precipitate violence very easily. that's what happened here in the neighboring district of tulli about three hundred fifty kilometers from mumbai this heavy security in this remote village it only has women and children many of the men have fled ever since a lynching to place in this building. fake news is killing people in india right here in this village council office five people were beaten to death by a mob last month the police say the people were driven by videos on whatsapp claiming that kidnappers are on the loose the victims were beggars from a nomadic tribe the lynchings here were particularly brutal the police have arrested twenty eight people so far. try to help the victims by locking them in here but the mob forced their way in.
4:33 pm
the people with sticks with rods put stones in witches in the office the crowd was bloodthirsty i've never seen anything like this there was a video on someone's phone warning people to stay vigilant because gangs were kidnapping children and stealing their organs. in monaco police have tracking train time if anyone for with explosive messages that can cause public panic. it's part of the campaign to quash rumors before they boil over and leaked by the measure stick on an added urgency in monaco's melting pot into religious tensions are never far from the surface here. today offices are in the hindu temple it's part of the campaign's outreach to entrench and religious leaders the message is familiar to remain skeptical of what you read online and don't resolve to fight it's. the
4:34 pm
campaign continues attracted junctions across the city leaflets with police help life numbers are handed out. to raise awareness about the deadly consequences of fake news. the report from sonia found occur and she joins us now from delhi high sonia numerous killings in india have apparently been motivated by rumors circulating on what is your report describe this all sounds incredible how's that possible. well there are many reasons for that you know for one there are millions of indians who are getting online for the first time on their mobile phones this is largely in areas where literacy levels on those people you know i get bombarded with information they tend to largely believe everything that they get the other thing that i learned while on the reporting trip was that you know the field of outsiders and kidnap was is really something that has prevailed for generations in some communities and india and social media has really given those
4:35 pm
rumors an unprecedented reach and the speed which often you know which leads to to mosque beinecke and violence in certain cases the experts i've spoken to have also said that this problem is also linked to deep seated problems with the police and traditionally you know there are. areas that are fewer police officers on the ground the ones who are on the job a poorly trained so i think in many instances the police have have just been slow to react or simply afraid to get a grip of this problem of course that's slowly changing as we saw in that report your report also touched on the subject or interreligious tensions as a background for the violence tell us more about the. well in recent years we've seen growing incidents of you don't vigilante violence and lynchings that are really targeted at muslims and other minorities the offenders in this case are usually hindu right wing groups vigilantes so-called
4:36 pm
protection groups and you know they operate with impunity they've killed people in the past for transporting cattle for allegedly storing grief so there are critics here who say that under the current hindu nationalist government in india because you know has really become a polarizing and we're just divisions of whitening so so there are critics say it was saying that the government is simply not doing enough to rein in these groups and to protect minorities ok what's talk about what's that's missing services pearlie being used to circulate these rumors so often was what's being. being single is potentially dangerous in this environment. when you know india remains what's largest market there are an estimated two hundred million users in the country it's the single largest internet base. for people here so this is what's absolutely is an incredible reach in india and you know because it's a personal best service that many people who say people are more inclined to
4:37 pm
believe information that they receive through whatsapp because it's often coming via family and by a friends and there is a third aspect to it you know i mean the see the technology that whatsapp employs is also making the situation more complicated you know whatsapp is encrypted and in which means that the messages are not stored in the company's servers and this means that whatsapp you know cannot wanted to use those messages for false information and fake news so what's being done to address those problems on you know what measures are policymakers and very what's taking to stop the rumor mongering being pushed through the lethal extremes. well you know last month we saw india's top court to the supreme court step in the government to frame a law just pacifically deal with with cases often in chains and mob violence the government of india has now set up a panel to to look into this the government is also warned whatsapp of it's said it might to legal action of the company for really feeling to adequately address this
4:38 pm
problem and you know what's up for its part has also said that it is harder fired by these incidents and that it may change the rules and second you do this for indian uses for instance the company has said it may limit the number of times mistress can be forwarded so you thank you very much for that on your father because they're talking to us from delhi thank you. helen is here again the chinese economy facing some headwinds at the moment can you guess what they might be we're talking about the trade of disputes with the united states is hitting china's economy and according to a report from bloomberg japan has replaced china as the second largest stock market behind the u.s. now it's the first time since twenty fourteen that japan is ahead of china in the ranking according to the report all listed chinese companies together have a value of around six trillion dollars at the moment japan's stock valuation slightly higher in addition to the trade dispute china is also plagued by we cut
4:39 pm
domestic growth. opposition is growing in the u.s. so you've a government plan to freeze vehicle fuel efficiency standards which came in during the obama era carmakers would save money but critics say the plan would have other costs. it would be good news for the auto industry assembly line workers and dealers say u.s. agencies pushing for the reversal of the stricter obama era regulations would raise car prices by twenty three hundred dollars on average they say fewer consumers would be able to afford newer and safer vehicles thus raising traffic deaths the argument goes. but critics say the looser regulations would contribute to climate change they say the real health issue is emissions. especially in big cities like here in l.a. . well the air quality around here hasn't been great and it hasn't been great for a long time i think that that's probably the opposite direction that we should be
4:40 pm
moving and i think there should be more stringent regulations and not less. i mean if the effects are every day quality of life effects the way we breathe that affects how we feel it's not just some kind of political game. the obama regulation would require vehicles to consume two leaders of gasoline less per one hundred kilometers manufacturers would also be push to put more electric vehicles on the roads without the new standards g.m. ford and chrysler would each save sixty billion dollars the u.s. government would also withdraw the rights of states to enact their own rules as california has long done. if there is a final proposal to roll back california's waiver the state will sue and i think the first thing we'll do is they will ask a court to leave the current regulations in place because one of the big issues is one of the automaker supposed to comply with they have pretty long lead times for their productions and so they need to know within the next year probably for twenty
4:41 pm
twenty one vehicles what standards they're going to have to comply with the issue isn't yet settled government agencies will hold hearings in the coming weeks and various interest groups will be invited. american automaker g.m. wants the u.s. to exempt one of its f.'s s.u.v.s or new twenty five percent tariffs against vehicle imports from china the request filed this week reflects the confusing boundaries of the u.s. china trade dispute g.m. manufacture is the buick envision in china where it sells the vast majority of the midsize s.u.v.s some two hundred thousand in fact it sends another forty one thousand to the u.s. every year and says it needs those revenues to invest in u.s. facilities. while the hot weather is driving up b.s. sales a know way more than in china is now the world's biggest beer market and heineken
4:42 pm
wants to get in on the act and expand in the country the dutch bring giant is buying a forty percent share in the listed entity of state owned c.r.v. which is the country's biggest beer maker heineken will merge its operations in china with those of its new partner with more and more chinese raising a glass the world's second largest brewer hopes to tap into that growth with be a sales tax elsewhere. and of course what goes well with beer football and terry's got some good news for german football fans. soccer is finally back here in germany at the country's second division. it's up and running today and joining me here to talk about the start of the new season is all of the movie from d.w. sports they all are so second division what can fans get psyched excited about in the second division this year well expectations a very high for the second division this year in
4:43 pm
a large part because we've got to germany's traditional giants taking part in the second division in the form of hamburg and. hamburg for the first time as well we're going to hamburg dobby for the first time since twenty eleven so that's had a lot to get excited about the residents of hamburg other teams as well like for example they made the playoffs last season they came so close to getting into the top flight just missed out they'll be desperate to make it happen this time perhaps for german football fans the thing to get excited about most is the fact we can all talk about german football again without the subject being that catastrophe with the national team in the summer. ok let's just stick to her for the moment this is the first time that they've ever played in the second division how do you think they'll do it is a bit of a step into the unknown for since the bundesliga was founded back in one thousand nine hundred sixty three had been ever present in the top flight no longer now going to have to get used to the second division they're going to have to get used to trips like. this on how it was and rather the munich and dortmund that it's
4:44 pm
a bit of a reality check and i think that's the best thing possible for this club you know how to become a byword for under-performance and unrealistic expectations and this is a chance to just kind of reset or get back to real football if you like it's also a chance for them to win something for the first time in a long time you know they'll be the favorites probably for the title this year thanks in part to some of the players who stuck around from last season the likes of lewis holtby and young feet all the young talent. christian hits the coach is very pleased that these guys have stuck around let's hear what he had to say. facing players that embrace the change with their actions nowadays it's rare that players will give up millions of euros in earnings for the sake of loyalty to their club. so hamburg. kept some big players as you mentioned and it's the same with the league's other title favorites
