welcome to the program i'm called asked as your prepares to mark the moment one hundred years when the guns fell silent at the end of the first world war the leaders of france and of germany have come together and the highly symbolic ceremony president emmanuel mccall of france and germany as chancellor angela merkel later wreath and unveiled a plaque in the force of the armistice clearly the name we have you see that moment highlights the special alliance at the heart of europe after decades of reconciliation between the former adversaries in two world wide margin. inside a railway car the two leaders then inscribed in the golden book of remembrance they
5:02 pm
signed that book there is will in fact last signatures in the book world leaders are gathering in paris for the main ceremonies marking the end of the first world war culminating at eleven am on sunday morning the very end of the conflict let's turn now to max often he is in paris for us max a historic occasion a highly symbolic meeting today between those two former enemies of course now strong allies. and he's hosting some sixty world leaders at remembrance ceremonies this weekend how significant is this bilateral event between the french president and the german chancellor the huge bang with which this marathon commemorative week will go out is of course the meeting of the sixty to seventy heads of state and government that will be here actually behind me at the that's the often you can also already tell there's a lot of commotion rehearsals you already see dignitaries walking around so
5:03 pm
a lot going on very important that will be the message to the world but of course what happens between france and germany is that the core of what happened in the last one hundred years it's at the core of europe and that jews through nations can live in peace together was of course symbolized by the mother of michael and i get back a. highly powerful message coming out of compiegne that it's the first time that the french this french german couple has been there as president and chancellor since the second world war it doesn't get much more symbolic than that max a lot of discussion as well about this joint commemoration as you mentioned by americal him across and the way that this really echoes two of their predecessors can you tell us more about that. you've had pairings in the history of france and germany ever since the second world war that have been very powerful the first one without a doubt being a child
5:04 pm
a goal on the french side and called out a no on the german side but the one that probably went down in history the most off also let me tell all of the french side and head would call on the german side when they commemorate the first world war in one nine hundred eighty four so seventy years after the start of the first world war in holding hands both one on the one side have a quote very tall also meet all the rather small french president on the other side that went around the world because back then you really had still a lot of reconciliation to be done because a lot of people from that time were still alive this is no longer the case and the french german friendship is taken for granted that's why there's not as much a reconciliation work to be done from my call and it's still inscribed in that history those pictures we saw today from compiegne might might go down the same stretch. now colon and it's a wrong you know they came from this generation of post-war leaders they lived
5:05 pm
through world war two for them european unity this was really the difference between born peace literally the difference do you think merkel and mccraw have that same awareness. they have the same awareness you just have to think about the biography of the german chancellor for example going to mexico grew up in east germany which was controlled by the soviet union as a direct result of world war two and in the name of michael has made it pretty clear this week with all the different venues and sites he has visited is the visited during this commemorative week that he thinks it's a very important topic what both are trying to do apparently is try to remind us of what could be europe as its worst with the world wars and that's not that far away although world war one hundred years nobody really who fought in that war is still alive but world war two right afterwards you still have veterans who fought in that war it's not that far away so they want to take this and maybe gain some traction
5:06 pm
for to remind people in europe what's really important piece. versus war life versus death take some of that energy and use it to maybe create a little more unity within the european union going forward president mccall himself i mean he's been on the six day tour of different towns and villages that were affected by the war in france he's really been engaging with this anniversary pretty strongly he has been engaging in this probably a two fold reason for that first of all it seemed to team and we've heard that in background so this really important to them with the sinking popularity that he has at the moment in france that he needs to find a link to the population again so that's why he went into eleven different regions he talked to people and mostly in regions where also you know the right wing populous so pretty strong and all the other side of it of course was to try to remind everybody how far the german french friendship has come in the last one
5:07 pm
hundred years thank you very much max often there live in paris. u.s. president donald trump had planned to visit a military cemetery to pay respects to the american soldiers who died fighting in world war one but the white house scrapped the plans due to bad weather french president emanuel mcchrystal had earlier held an apparently cordial meeting with donald trump at the elysee palace this after the u.s. president described french calls for joint european defense forces as quote very insulting on twitter and he demanded that europe pay its fair share to nato in california nine people have died and hundreds of thousands have been displaced as wildfires continue to rage in multiple locations on thursday flames engulfed the town of paradise and northern california driven by strong winds and fed by a parched landscape the blaze astroid thousands of homes separate fires have forced

5:10 pm
and with us from los angeles is journalist jason camp a donia jason we want to ask you how dangerous are these blazes where you are there extremely dangerous the fire has now jumped from melville in to los angeles city and that fire is burning just but i knew here about twenty miles up the coast it's hitting a very densely populated area right now so fire crews are stretched extremely thin trying to protect life and property right now the fire in malibu is about seventy thousand acres and hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes are there any signs any mention the difficulties there are there any signs of california firefighters are getting closer to really bringing these blazes under control. right now the santa ana winds have calmed a bit so last night we were getting wind gusts of up to forty to fifty miles per hour right now there are coming to about twelve to fifteen miles per hour so that
5:11 pm
is helping also the cool temperatures here in southern california are actually really helping these guys out there and the problem is that when the wind gusts pick up will carry an ember from one home or one spot and then and then throw it about a mile or two away and then that creates a spot fire and then the fire catches up to that and that's how fast this fire is moving we have got agencies from all across southern california coming up to help us today or are not exactly sure if they can get any containment right now so people are still evacuating p.c.h. highway one the main thoroughfare through malibu has been backed up since yesterday afternoon it still sounds like dangerous conditions and journalist jason keva donya in los angeles thank you very much thank you. let's get you updated

5:14 pm
a lot to learn tactically. we have a young team and they need time to develop that's normal when you're nineteen or twenty you're not fully mature and since funds have to be snapped to initially just five six. historically byron have won the lion's share of the fixtures against george this season byron's form has been lackluster under new coach nico kovacs resulting in the team dropping in the standings but the biron boss remains as calm as can be i devise a system. i know a lot gets made of this fim pressure but believe me i don't feel any pressure two and a half years ago if frankfurt i had the relegation play off that was about survival but that was real precious. existence and. so therefore we're going to enjoy the game against don't mind and. byron dominated the last three just league meetings
