8:02 pm
still alive and living in the united states but today ninety five year old ricky folly touched down in germany twenty five years after efforts began to deport him all during world war two he worked at a nazi labor camp in poland where inmates were massacred but it's not certain that he will be prosecuted here in germany this report now with exclusive pictures of polly's deportation from a.b.c. news. to living quietly in new york for decades this was the moment history caught up with pani. u.s. authorities arresting him for deportation to germany expelling the ninety five year old despite his clear frailty has been a priority for the trumpet ministration born in what was then poland poly arrived in america in one nine hundred forty nine concealing his nazi service from immigration officials eight years later his application for citizenship was granted but in the one nine hundred ninety s.
8:03 pm
investigators caught up with him he admitted to them having trained at a nazi s.s. camp in trav nikky the site of one of the holocaust worst massacres claiming the lives of some six thousand jewish citizens. a judge then revoked pollies american citizenship in two thousand and three a year later the u.s. authorities ordered his deportation. until nov germany had refused to accept him on the grounds that he isn't a german and also because german investigators say the evidence against him using conclusive. but the u.s. ambassador lobbied strongly behind the scenes saying berlin had a moral obligation to admit a man suspected of committing crimes in germany's name he's ninety five he's probably going to die some points. he's a little bit sickly and so we wanted to make sure that he didn't die in peace and comfort in the united states but that he was brought back somewhere to to face more
8:04 pm
justice on diplomatic rather than legal grounds the german government has now accepted that talk you meant. and i'd like to welcome now deidre berger she is the director of the american jewish committee berlin office a very warm welcome mr berger we just heard the u.s. ambassador there in that report saying that germany that germany in berlin has a moral obligation to take in mr polly even if there isn't a legal justification do you think germany has a moral obligation in this case absolutely and so does fortunately the german foreign minister. it's a big stream importance today for the younger generation in an era where holocaust memory is being attacked from all sides one holocaust revisionism is becoming popular on the internet where young people see this for people to understand that there can be no expiration on the crimes of the holocaust and the crimes of the
8:05 pm
nazis. the ways in which he's brought to court we hope he will be we don't know but in any case that we talk about it that his arrival here is meaningful for us as a society is essential for our understanding moving forward as democracy still germany has argued for years that poly is not our responsibility he is not a german national is that a valid argument no not at all because he committed crimes in the names of germany and so there is no doubt about it that if he is to be tried somewhere today in this day and age it should be germany if there's not enough evidence at the moment then it's time to go and look for more there has to be so much evidence we know a lot about the trivia nicky death camp where he was trained and we also know from the trial of john demjanjuk another former guard that you don't have to prove individual guilt today there's a much different hurdle and so it's extremely important that this case be reopened
8:06 pm
is it disappointing that it took twenty five years to get to this stage it's extremely disappointing and we're very grateful in the jewish world and i think in general that the ma crissy that both president trump himself took this on and that the u.s. ambassador in germany for a criminal took this on and that they've really made this a top priority and we hope this isn't the end of it there are other cases that are still there to be investigated let's put those resources we have to investigating them big we cannot let these people die if we know that they were criminals without at least attempting to put them on trial what should germany do with mr polly now i think germany should assign more prosecutors to the case and historians and start looking for the evidence i think that we don't we can't really say that there's not enough evidence we know an enormous amount now maybe more than ten years ago so
8:07 pm
it's time to compile the. information trials are very important for the story of whole record and there is nothing that could be more meaningful as we move forward in the twenty first century to make sure that we're not closing the books on the twentieth century but that world looking much more carefully from today's perspective so that we understand the human rights basis for our democracies in europe in the u.s. today what does this case this particular deportation mean for jewish communities in europe and in america what type of significance does it carry its tremendous significance it's a hope that indeed we're not going to put to rest so to speak to close the books on a chapter that shouldn't be closed the can never be closed and i think it's really a sign of hope but also for the society as a whole as we know germany in particular was found it modern democratic germany after the holocaust and we can't let the memory be forgotten the question is how do we move forward remembering it and this is
8:08 pm
a way to show young people yes there are still cases and even should peace people die let's look back into the historical record that's compiled because we took the time to investigate and as a society to condemn the horrific crimes of the nazis to have burger director of the american jewish committee in office thank you for spending time with us. software enjoyed microsoft says this sordid attempts by kremlin backed tacklers to launch cyber attacks on u.s. political groups the hacking group known as fancy bear reportedly tried to steal data from the websites of conservative american think tanks and the u.s. senate microsoft's president says the hackers also targeted candidates and france's we sent presidential election the kremlin has dismissed the allegations calling them part of quote a witch hunt. well for the washington correspondent alex under
8:09 pm
a phenomena and we use barbara of a so from a brussels a good evening ladies i want to give you the first two words tell us exactly who was targeted by the group fancy and probably more importantly who is fancy bear. i think what it's quite interesting in this case is the fact that according to microsoft and the russian hackers this time talkative particulary groups organizations informally tied to the republican party and the target was for example the hudson institute a conservative thing very critical of russia or. international republican institute and nonprofit organization that has worked for decades in promoting democracy around the world and according to experts the shift to attacking conservative organizations and of course russia as
8:10 pm
a goal to diminish and disrupt and the organizations challenging russia and its governments and when we talk about it is group that is allegedly behind these attacks offend seabird is a well known to the investigators here in the u.s. it describes itself as the international hacker team but its members are russian speakers and they operate on moscow time they were allegedly behind an attack against a white house state has they have allegedly infiltrate a computer system of several government. systems and they were responsible at that the most important fact for the e-mail it sect of democratic national committee all garble want to go to you and next to according to microsoft president brad smith the fancy bear was also were active ahead of the french
8:11 pm
presidential election targeting every major presidential candidate in the spring twenty seventeen is this news at all to french political parties. no not at all because the current french government came prepared and they had already been fears a couple of months earlier last year before the dutch elections and the dog truly truly took precautions now if we look at the french political lens scape at that time you see the far right marine le pen they had nothing to fear from food to him because he testily supported them neither had the far left the republicans took care of their own dahlan fall so remained among them a crumb and his campaign team really prepared they sort of safeguarded the internal communication against hacking attempts and when a day before the election as some emails off the steam emerged and became public
8:12 pm
there was absolutely nothing significant or sensational in them there were more or less completely void and and empty and so when asked about this hacking attempt the campaign news then said yes we fear this would happen and we safeguard our internal communication completely totally blocked it against any sort of interference and re only use normal email to talk about the weather and other completely unimportant things so the french president among them a crime and his team knew what was coming and they really took preemptive measures talking about preemptive measures alexandra that the kremlin has of course tonight there hacks i believe we have the statement that was issued by the kremlin spokesperson dmitri peskov here it is what he said is that we don't know what hackers they are talking about we don't know what they mean by influence of elections the us has confirmed there was no influence on elections who exactly are they talking about we don't understand what these conclusions are based on the
8:13 pm
evidence is a lacking alexander with mid-term elections just a little over two months away how is the u.s. protecting itself from any future hacking attempts at attempts to sow divisions among voters. well the u.s. officials say that they are very concerned actually only two weeks ago seen you ass intelligence official came to the white house and briefed reporters on the situation and warning that the russians are continuing their pervasive efforts to weaken the us as to undermine the you asked crissy codes director of national intelligence even said russia is the most aggressive actor here so they are very concerned and in this briefing they stressed that it's their top priority to secure
8:14 pm
the midst elections however we also have to say that step president himself half repeatedly and openly questions u.s. intelligence finding on russia and has tried to downplay the role of the russian meddling in the last elections in twenty six scene did abuse isn't a phenomenon reporting from washington and. from brussels thank you ladies both for your continued coverage now let's get you caught up with some of the other stories making news around the world. more than a million people have now taken refuge in relief camps after floods in the southern indian state of corella two weeks of to wrench will really submerge much of the state while the rescue operation is starting to wind down with the death toll standing at over four hundred italy has allowed a ship carrying one hundred seventy seven migrants to dock in sicily but won't let anyone get off the migrants were rescued five days ago by the italian coast guard

8:17 pm
sector has been at the forefront of the country's economic development. but recent events have put the brakes on turkey's economy. turkish banks and companies have accumulated four hundred seventy billion dollars of foreign desk and just the value of the lira plummets it's getting ever harder to repay those loans. turkish president ratchet type eridu one has ignored calls for interest rate hikes and rejected any notion of a bailout from the international monetary fund. experts say a multi-pronged approach is needed to tackle the country's economic problems. turkish business and investment in the environment need structural reforms labor market reform fiscal reform education reform all of the forms that are this is a city to cope with the challenges of the twenty first century in the digital age
8:18 pm
so they have to be priority. ordinary turks are already feeling the pain prices are rising rapidly and there are fears that a slowdown in business could trigger massive job cuts. in germany some politicians have raised the prospect of offering turkey financial aid but economists say such a move wouldn't get to the core of turkey's problems. it would be a really bad idea to make direct payments in order to support turkish economy i mean turkey's problem is not liquidity problem there are structural problems inflation is too high and that interest rates are off the central bank are too low . for now the turkish president appears to. turman to stick to his existing economic policy mean while two major credit ration agencies have downgraded the country without
8:19 pm

8:20 pm
seem to know that i guess what he took over or he simply doesn't care what i guess he pouring didn't really care we have heard him saying that many times that he accepts loyalty and he has been clear also throughout his campaign that he is in favor of a very weak dollar investors mostly in the united states called the latest interview in which he criticized the monetary policy of the fat as a complete no go institutions like the fed also like the european central bank here in frankfurt need to be completely independent and it is even more surprising because it was the trump himself who appointed jeremy powell for the position of fed chairman his predecessor janet yellen wanted to continue to work in this position but did not extend her contract. that we'll have more business news here in a short while now it's back over to late and layla more turmoil in afghanistan and that on a day that was supposed to be very very festive afghan security forces have fought off a major militant assault in the heart of the capital kabul reports say all the attackers

seventeen year war. ukrainian filmmaker oleg cents off imprisoned in russia on terrorism charges has now been on hunger strike for one hundred days the forty two year old is serving a twenty year long sentence after being convicted three years ago of arson attacks and his native crimea sense off was a fierce critic of moscow's occupation of the peninsula back in two thousand and fourteen amnesty international calls on soft case a show trial and western nations have came paid for his release and soft lawyer says that since starting the hunger strike back in may is condition has rapidly deteriorated. and with me in the studio is well done but now he is the press spokesman for human rights watch here in berlin a very warm welcome mr butler now oleg since off has been on hunger strike as we've just been reporting for one hundred days how is he being monitored does your

8:25 pm
mr sense often french president michel has put his political weight behind him president putin has remained tight lipped on the case of sense of do you feel that his current hunger strike will motive right motivate the president to do something about his situation that's very difficult to save so despite of all this international criticism despite of all international support for sense of putin has so far not moved. so it's very difficult to say how he will decide in the coming days or weeks we think that because of the case is connected to crimea that might be a reason why putin is not reacting maybe as the can either by. again egypt for of the issues so this might be reasons why putin is not swinging at the momentum to move right thank you so very much welcome but not first spokesman for human rights watch and for all and thank you. for your washing the debris news we still have

senate. and the czech prime minister andrea bob is has been booed in prague while making a speech to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the soviet led invasion of czechoslovakia but this was speaking at a memorial when his words were drowned out by shouts of shame some historians say about this was an informer for the state security agency at the time of the invasion that ended the prox frame and the w.'s are frank hoffman met one prague resident who has never forgotten that day. road and hour retraces the pass near the radio station building and crowd fifty years ago dramatic scenes unfolded on this very street. toward the. mall where i was standing in front of this tree.
8:32 pm
the shells were exploding shrapnel was flying everywhere. explosions and shrapnel everywhere barricades were crushed by soviet tanks soldiers shot demonstrators there our took photographs on that long day along with many other progress events in the early hours of august the twenty first one nine hundred sixty eight warsaw pact troops ended the prague spring dream of an open and humane communist system at the start of that year the communist party had begun allowing greater freedom of expression journalists working for czech radio we're no longer censored. or so we did not want the radio building to be occupied. so people set up barricades they also set a tank on fire here. good for the. images from that day is stored in the check archives of state security services the documents a studied in catalogues by historians like on very much
8:33 pm
a care the violence ends of the products spring is still felt today. as a sixty nine hundred sixty eight is always closely associated with this feeling of emotional shock that is tied to the occupation. to the twenty first of august and the days that followed it departed on our. lot is where people resisted nonviolently us here where people really came together as one in our society this is our. time it was a very very powerful time. every bar. but the events of the prague spring served only to fortify moscow's hard liners in the politburo czechoslovakia state security services immediately expanded and they took on additional spice historians believe that in the one nine hundred eighty s. the current prime minister on trade became one of them. and. bush was
8:34 pm
in the highest category meaning agent good. night the allegations a few weeks ago on an online channel he himself phones some of them when the media claims that i lost this state security affair and courses and then that is a lie. while many historians are convinced that czech prime minister used to serve as an informant of the state security agency of communist czechoslovakia at least some of his voters see it a little bit differently. last year about issues party became a stronger in the country after a populist election campaign was opinion about him is divided you know it's like you know it's not strange that he was an agent it would bother us but they haven't proved it. to the world years and i think just about everyone is bothered by it but most people don't let it show so. these are things that are contrary to human
8:35 pm
principles and it's downright unprincipled that it is also that i don't know but it bothers me terribly i can't understand why so many people don't care. as people remember the events of the prague spring is violent ten fifty years ago it seems the debate about the country's communist past has also returned to the czech republic. sweden has reintroduced compulsory military service for high school graduates countering the trend in europe which has been moving away from conscription in the year two thousand and twenty eight european countries still had compulsory military service. germany france italy and spain but over the past eighteen years the majority of european states convert at their armed forces into purely professional armies today just ten european states still mandate time in the military and sweden defense minister argues that the annexation of crimea by russia has made conscription necessary here's
8:36 pm
a look at what the recruits think about the duty to serve. their job bob these young people are undergoing military training in sweden's forests they're being put into shape to defend their country this year sweden introduced conscription lasting eleven months for every high school graduate and that means both young men and women. fighting to say thank you for me it's a matter of course it gives me something and i probably would have done it all entirely he said mccain also. mean for me to stop us going family and friends think i should stay in its most believe it will become my profession i'm not so sure myself but i really enjoy it. this year only about four percent of graduates and four thousand other young people will be involved in. the swedish government has reintroduced the draft mainly for defense reasons. when
8:37 pm
russia annexed crimea when we have conflicts in ukraine and a military presence and activities at our doorstep in the baltic sea we have to make our army ready. and that's why we need general military conscription and or transferred i'm pretty. in militarily neutral sweden a return to conscription is taken rather likely must be. but through it i don't believe in a professional army everyone should be involved because i did military service years ago and found a good early i'm almost a fish but you have to defend your country i think it's good that girls and boys learn something before they take on further studying said nothing and i bet yesterday. besides learning how to use weapons the young people also learn things they may not have learned at home. unless i can write to them that we teach them how to make their beds and how to take care of each other the national so that's very different from today's culture discipline so here we are into vigils where a group get
8:38 pm
a band and the group is set to get larger regions army aims to increase the number it calls up in the near future. and i'm going to hand you back over to eleanor for more business news taking a look at how refugees are being integrated into the job market there if we look at the latest numbers which are out at the moment later it seems that they're on the up the number of employed refugees here in germany has risen by half according to those new official figures three hundred thousand refugees have been hired since they arrived from c. one hundred thousand just a year ago especially young and well trained migrants have the best chances of finding work done in german or there remains an important job requirement however the german employment agency has taken the increase in working refugees is a sign that be integrated in to the job market well that says more than half a million refugees are still registered as jobs because. nigeria
8:39 pm
has just about the most unreliable electricity supply in the world one research group reckons that only eighteen percent of people connected to the grid get electricity for more than half of the times the most nigerians have to rely on other sources of power such as generators and solar panels now for the poor those options there are expensive but one organization is working to improve the situation starting with the largest slum in nigeria. the steam a just a learning how to assemble solar chargers using simple materials they can find around them like plastic containers and batches the charges can be used to power phones rechargeable fans and all of our small devices volunteers from the bright hands initiative of the niceness workshop for young teenagers in rural communities many households in nigeria only have electricity for a few hours in
8:40 pm
a day and most low income earners can't afford to install solar panels or buy generators with no prior technical knowledge these participants can now produce something they can use when the power is out the class is divided into eight groups after building the charge at each group is expected to preach a business plan so a panel of experts i do will be a d.b.a. is the founder of right hands she says how goal is to raise the ambition of the teenager and the same many opportunities in areas like like this big corporations are going to a profit in the midst of what we're trying to do is to get them to think about who are the problems in our communities that can make money from give back to my community some of the participants already have big dreams like a lizbeth who wants to be an engineer she says she wants to pass on what she's learned here to others in her community to see how bring some of my mates together some goes well educated in
8:41 pm
a bring them together says america and elaine to them assuming it is and build my own country i went on to be able to. be an interdimensional organizers of this workshop know solar power charges of nigeria's electricity problem but they hope this workshop might give teenage as the confidence and skills to create solutions to other challenges around them. well it's game time this week in the german city of cologne for hundreds and thousands of dedicated game isn't the world's largest event for computer and video games when it's underway. amongst the crowds for us. let's bang and you're inside the game not just on screen the recent mega-hit fortnight breaks with tradition rather than playing the survival games games come visitors can test their real world skills playing is free anyway and has attracted one hundred twenty five million people in one year the
