then he was wearing an electronic tag he was monitored by authorities so they knew about his whereabouts but they didn't know what he was planning to do and many questions arising out of that but all of this of course coming in the middle of a general election campaign in the country as well how do you think that will be affected. well it's less than 2 weeks until the british voters will had to the polls december 12th and of course terrorism will now be one of the main topics going forward prime minister boris johnson as we heard in the report was quick there to make a political point saying he was always in favor of not releasing dangerous and violent violent offenders and criminals early so we expect this going forward being one of the main issues being discussed and of course this comes at a time when the country is highly emotional anyway divided over the issue of
polarized over this election the parties will refrain abstain from campaigning over the weekend but i'm sure once they head back on the compay trail on monday terrorism and how to deal with violent offenders tougher sentences for those will be one of the main topics going forward in this election our correspondent. in a london thank you. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world in hong kong hundreds of young and elderly protesters have gathered to show that their demands have not changed despite a landslide victory for the pro-democracy camp in local elections a week ago saturday's rally is organized by students and the so-called silver haired group to show that their cause for freedom and democracy off cross generational. and motor protestors have called on prime minister joseph miscount to step down they're angry because his associate allegedly the mastermind of

of protesters gather outside now police expect more and t.f.t. protests over the weekend folks are going to has had its name on the conference who covered up to distance itself from what they call makes a comic a says promotes a quote ethnic and nationalist agenda we a.s.d. is germany's largest opposition party in the parliament. and our correspondent here the curfew is in bounds by where the f.t. party congress is taking place now these congresses a usually about the party recalibrating working out where they stand on political issues could we see a shift within the party this weekend. we could because the party is due to elect its new leadership they currently have a double leadership europe moisten and alexander downer and alexander downer and wants to retire from that post and held a brief speech already here this morning where he also once again summed up what
the clear him of the party is he said that one day i'm going to michael c. to you would only have one option left for a coalition and that would be them so this is something that particularly wants to work towards bearing in mind of course that it shifts further to the extreme right that simply is not an option currently also isn't because the c.d.u. says it won't even cooperate with the f.t. as it is right now we're talking about that part of the party how strong is the more radical wing of the a.f.p. . well the death of the wing certainly gained traction through recent election results in eastern states here in germany its own hucker. became or led his party to become the 2nd strongest force and that is a success that you can certainly see as votes in the bank here i'm something to expound on having said that there are also large factions of jackie in western
states who are very concerned that the f.t. will simply be seen as extreme bite and will no longer be electable to more kind of a center conservative group of voters and that is the internal battle that pretty much sums up the story of the f.t. since it was founded almost 7 years ago and so certainly whoever gets voted in will have that challenge ahead and will point in the direction where the possible go in the future and whether that is further to the extreme right all right our. chief political editor from the far right a tea party congress in because thanks so much. well to iraq now where prime minister abdul mahdi says that he will resign off to 40 people were killed and the latest clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters the death cell since unrest broke out in october has now surpassed 400 people. celebrations at baghdad's liberation square protesters traded stones for songs

now in the region of the himalayas the world of kung fu is traditionally a male one but these women behind the world they are noms from a 1000 year old buddhist order and it's spread across nepal and india and they are using their training to send out a message of equality. like her body was. himalayan the back of part. figures in an anxious discipline to combat a centuries only prejudice. one of the aims of gender equality because there are not many nuns who have. not many girls i guess in the him. and we'd like an example for them but up. these numbers are part of a progressive school of tibetan buddhism that encourages its followers to fight the patriarchy. the i aim is to lead by example in
a region where girls are often seen as a burden. in all their religions they never said that girl is less than a boy but i think it's a. rule i would say it's a ping in the community that have left behind for many many years and being a little different makes breaking this. glass and coming out. the women say the martial art goes hand in hand with the practice of buddhism. and is in bold in them to spread their empowerment they've now given self-defense workshops to most 400 girls across the region. until and unless girls and boys that . male and female is long gone there wouldn't be a peace and harmony because one kind of person is always looking down at the other . for the noms it's
