this is deja vu news of live from berlin and the battle for brights at the 2 contenders to become the next british prime minister and take britain out of the e.u. make their case on national t.v. the winner will have just about 3 months to meet the bracts a deadline at the end of october also coming up. the dangers of being a journalist as experts gather in london to review their situation we go to mexico where journalists put their lives on the line reporting on drug cartels and human

traffickers. and the iraqi asylum seeker who admits to killing a 14 year old german girl the case is fueling controversy about migration as the court to paris to announce its verdict. i'm brian thomas thanks so much for joining us we've given this program in britain where the 2 remaining contenders to become conservative party leader and the next british prime minister have faced off in a televised debate their big clash coming on their approach to it former foreign minister boris johnson is expected to win the ballot of party members if he does i'll have just about 3 months to take britain out of the e.u. . as a tough negotiator germy hunted previously accused barsa johnson of being
9:02 am
a coward for not meeting him in a t.v. debate earlier doesn't when the 2 finally fronted up hunter came out swinging the current foreign secretary asked johnson if you would promise to resign as prime minister if britain didn't leave the european union by the 31st of october johnson says doing that now would simply be a gift to e.u. negotiators. deliver a deal i think it's very very important not to envisage any circumstances in which we would fail to come out of the e.u. on october 31st i don't want to hold out to the e.u. the prospect that they might encourage my resignation by refusing to agree a deal once accused johnson of being motivated by personal ambition i asked for a straight question and he said very clearly before that it was leaving on october 31st to do or die and i think it's do or die for the country but not a prime minister who put his own neck on the line that is not leadership the candidates would then asked if they were prepared to bypass british parliament if
9:03 am
it rejected leaving the e.u. without a deal and parliament i think would be a rather curious thing to do if this is about taking back control for parliament to actually shut it down so my answer to that is no how about you force well i'm not going to take anything off the table any more that i'm going to take no deal or no answer off the table because then came perhaps the toughest question and the lightest moment of the evening. what one quality do you most admire in your opponent as a feature prime minister. i think. i shall you know i greatly admire his ability to change his mind all i and campaign for brits it now hans response i really admire boris his ability to answer the question was i was this great openness and you ask him a question he puts a smile on your face and you forget what the question was the final question now is
9:04 am
if this debate changed any of the voters' minds or if it's too late many of the 160000 tory party members eligible to vote thought to have already done so post. did abuse bagot mass joins us now with more on this of from london good morning baggett in many ways this debate as we just heard comes to light doesn't it with most party members already apparently having voted. well of course we don't know yet but the assumption is that they are a punctual bunch the conservative party members who are determining britain's next prime minister and a lot of them would have already voted that's frustrating for jeremy hunt the friend secretary who really is the challenger boris johnson boys johnson the clear frontrunner but nevertheless jeremy hunt tried his best because this was really his chance to turn at least ace people's opinions who haven't voted and he did learn some blows he made much of boris johnson's being evasive maybe not answering the
9:05 am
question properly i thought it was interesting though often there was conservative party members giving their opinion and one woman said well even if he doesn't answer the question because johnson she was a bird johnson supporter what she wanted is some sort of humor some light touch and i think this is what a lot of members of the conservative party want they just want some but he was like a tonic for the party who they really think can also lead the country to the next election victory and many people still think that this is boris johnson and not jeremy hunt ok what about bracks it wasn't the main issue last night. yes for sure breaks it is really the overarching issue nothing much gets done in british politics because there are the country is basically and the standstill and
9:06 am
the locks and because the wrecks and situation is so unclear and it's really not clear what money there will be for the future for example so text cards are also an issue is something that boris johnson has promised jeremy hunter's question whether this is the right time for it but really it's breaks it and in this context it is very interesting to see that labor's position has recently shifted has become clear in supporting a 2nd referendum because at this point we are getting closer to the next deadline and practice it which is the 31st of october we really don't know whether the situation room be resolved until then so the possibility of an absolute standstill and possibly the the risk of britain crashing out of the your opinion without any deal becomes beguiled by the day and as such in this situation labor has said they want a 2nd referendum and this is also something that the next future prime minister
9:07 am
jeremy and or boris johnson will have to have to decide on whether they would contemplate it at this point in time they say clearly no ok now if it is boris johnson what would a prime minister boris johnson do as his 1st order of business on bracks it. well they really wouldn't have much time to measure out the apartment in downing street and order the new cut ins they really have to pack their bags and go to brussels and those johnson has insinuated that he is the right man to get a different deal with brussels they will try and renegotiate they have seen that series amazed he has failed time and again and they have promised the day will get a better deal now from brussels we have had that that is very unlikely that they will give ground in a big way but nevertheless it's what the few what it would both candidates have promised and what they will do but it's really not much time the 31st of october is
9:08 am
the next deadline and to get meaningful changes out of brussels and to get this through the house of commons and into law it's very very tight indeed baggett thanks so much for that from long. let's preview now and some of the other stories making the news at this hour the united states wants to build a military alliance to safeguard the strategic waters off of iran and yemen the u.s. says it aims to guarantee navigation in the strait of hormuz and bob bob both crucial trade routes this comes as tensions between washington and tehran escalate. judges in the netherlands have given the go ahead for a holocaust memorial that has caused political friction the monument in amsterdam will feature the names of more than 100000 dodgy victims of the nazis local residents had objected that the proposed memorial was too big for their neighborhood. to ride hailing service guber has launched its 1st

9:10 am
more hello when one was a leo's with the searches of. this they were told that there might be secret mass graves here they have discovered one little kiss we have these women's loved ones have disappeared here we can see the bones of wessel's playmobil set about was most likely. to see no pattern has been reporting on the searching mothers for years and the vast majority of cases it turns out that their children were abducted and killed by the sea drug cartel. by covering the story to put herself in jeopardy she regularly receives death threats. a few years ago the threats almost became reality. was kidnapped. the end is going to be almost my life was in danger i knew they'd either kill me or let me go but i had already seen our faces. just get back there so i was sure they
9:11 am
would kill me and about that or know that you know one of them said it was time and made this gesture. although my but i won't matter one asks me if i had a last wish. there would be more there so i said god bless you. for joining the care and turning my daughters into orphans was there in the gussie's of this there in the us and let god like your password and may you be well get they will we need look i mean rick i asked him boy really. how words move to kidnappers they let her go. to c.s.s. and i mean once you're on the cartels list they can kill you at any time with or without a bodyguard. just a few days later a colleague of hers was kidnapped she knew him and had researched the drug scene with him as well 2 weeks later his body was found in black plastic bags.
9:12 am
family is constantly aware of the danger she faces every day. her sister loud and daughter always worried about her isn't. still there. i'm sad because i know that something can happen to her that i'm. because i know that she's not safe when she's working. still see both are very proud of. him but she's always given 100 percent and 100 percent extra. joy now in the studio by did it because mario millar but that report together for good morning miles thanks so much for that for the very moving report. the woman you profiled is very strong individual and also very fortunate that she has revived what's behind
9:13 am
the growing number of her colleagues who've been murdered in mexico as well mexico's actually the deadliest country for journalists outside a war zone since 2149 journalists have been and mexico according to mexico's national human rights commission and just to give an example last june there was. murdered in the southeastern state of tabasco she was a reporter covering the drug scene and she was shot right in front of a doorstep so she was already or it was already the 7th mad at this year alone in mexico also you have to understand in mexico politics and organized crime a very much into twined so that means as a mayor as a governor also as a police chief many of these actually being brought by the drug cartel so even before they get to that into their position sometimes they're already on the payroll of the truck so that means there's there's very little protection for these
9:14 am
journalists doesn't it if politicians are involved the people who should be leading the efforts to protect them are involved themselves bribes you mentioned so how can next a good journalist protect themselves yes that's right so they are government programs watch lee you know for journalists who received death threats. for example and her and her colleagues in journalism. they tell me you know these doesn't help so these are security measures like a camera outside of your home or an emergency but an emergency number also a bodyguard for example and the colleague i was talking about in the report of. she was murdered together with his bodyguard so these security measures actually don't help that's at least what they told me and she thinks the only measure which actually helps is leave the country but for her at least now that's not an option so bodyguards or even alarming yourself with your journalist is isn't going to help now arming herself she told me that's not an option for her as well because then
9:15 am
she is even greater you know aim for or for violence or they would not you know recognize as press of course they would recognize her as an enemy so she doesn't you know want to or weapons what's the outlook mario for journalists today how do they see the situation getting worse getting better well as i said in the beginning there are already 7 murders alone this year and there was a recent report from a freedom of expression advocacy group saying that 99 percent of attacks against journalists actually have gone unpunished so and also said actually that state actors play shooters role because i'm half of these cases there were state actors involved directly or indirectly that you see these. members of the guns and members of the government were actually involved they play a huge ball there and the mexican the mexican president. who was sworn in last december he actually promised to put an end to these murders of journalists. and
9:16 am
rights activists actually exercise that nothing really happened since he was sworn in and you know that there were actually no meaningful steps taken to hold the killings in the future mario muller but the report together for thank you so very much for the report for coming into your welcome. this is the news live from berlin still to come on the show the seaweed that's choking a delicate caribbean beaches but it's not only swimmers who are suffering so too is local wildlife will find out why this is happening. but 1st here in germany the verdict is expected today in the case of a rejected iraqi asylum seeker who's admitted to killing a 14 year old girl the suspect was supposed to have been deported 2 years before that young girl was raped and killed near the western city of the spot whence the santa disappeared and may last year 2 weeks went by before any trace of her was found then police discovered the body of a 14 year old next to a railway track in
9:17 am
a hole covered with dirt and branches ali be a young iraqi living in a refugee shelter and respond was the main suspect the police then got a tip from inside the migrant community where he was living. so. about a week after susanna disappeared a 13 year old refugee went to the police in fees. and said that susanna had been raped and murdered so i figured out it. and then he named this 20 year old iraqi as a possible suspect. and his family fled overnight to northern iraq but he was arrested there and handed over to german authorities he confessed to killing santa but denies raping her. during the trial so sonas father was shocked by unrepentant and massaging his dick remarks so where others. to follow them just
9:18 am
mature for him a good girl is a girl who doesn't go out alone who cooks and cleans who base the man and has no desires of her own and that is exactly what he practiced. you know dances does but he took you to trot right wing populist have used the case to criticize the government's refugee policy the authorities had denied asylum and he should have been deported long ago. said jack just envious bond will announce their verdict today a psychiatrist has diagnosed early b. as having a personality disorder with psychopaths traits he's expected to receive the maximum penalty of 15 years in jail let's bring in our senior political correspondent melinda crane following the story for us good morning linda of the 15 year sentence that's expected in this case is already being criticized as too lenient considering
9:19 am
the brutality of this murder of a child. in fact the prosecution has asked for a sentence of life and the 15 years would only occur if he were received if he were released early on good behavior the prosecution has said that the court absolutely should exclude that possibility from the outset in other words give him the sentence of life and say there will be no prior release for good behavior and in fact that would be the toughest sentence that can be handed down under german law. this murder has been sparking some fierce debate about germany's asylum system and its failure to deport rejected asylum seekers even those broken the law what's been the political fallout of this case absolutely in fact the case together with several other cases reignited debate about the migration policy that was pursued
9:20 am
pursued in 2015 by angela merkel's government in fact there were headlines as in the largest tabloid paper the building that said if he had been deported she would still be alive showing pictures of the suspect and and of suzanne of the murdered girl basically it did reopen debate the case and then in fact it also led to much discussion also in parliament and in the cabinet about stricter procedures for deporting migrants who had not been awarded asylum as we heard in the report al libi and his family had been down turned down their asylum request but they had not yet left the country since then the government has tightened those procedures particularly for any migrant who has been found guilty of criminal acts. speaking of criminal acts inside the migrant community what are the statistics concerning
9:21 am
criminality among asylum seekers here in germany you know evidence is this is on this is mixed and you may remember that a year ago donald trump tweeted that violent crime had been rapidly rising in germany due to the influx of migrants that in fact is not the case in absolute numbers crime has been falling in germany since 1992 and were at some of the lowest levels ever since that time however there has been something of an uptick in violent crime in some regions since 2017 some of that violent crime. is committed by migrants but what the studies seem to show is that the reason for any increase in crime committed by brought migrants has to do with the demographics of the migrant flow namely the fact that many of the migrants who came particularly in 2015 were young unaccompanied men and in general more
9:22 am
crime is committed by young men than by any other group in the population so the fact that there were more young men in that group would account for a slightly higher rate of violent criminality amongst migrants say the researchers thanks very much for looking into this for us this morning. we have some new sports now on wimbledon tennis in the women's something final and up is complete with something know your names in the last 4 on tuesday serena williams beating fellow american also wrist and 3 very hard for it sets williams is going for her 8th wimbledon title and the number 7 seeds the mona of remaining image short work of china's shoe asia the men's 7 finalists will be determined in today's matches. in cycling italy's l.a. of yani has claimed the 4 1st tour de france stage victory of his career the mostly flat 4th stage favored sprinters like me he stormed to victory with the help from

9:24 am
of the caribbean and the gulf of mexico are tourism magnets postings sandy beaches and crystal clear water but this picture is being disrupted by an unwelcome visitor like here at the beach in tulu mexico which now looks like this saga simu to come a brown algae which spreads rapidly is upsetting the sensitive ecosystem the seaweed can reach a length of up to 16 meters growing up to 10 centimeters a day and it does more than upset the local tourism industry according to a recent university of south florida study algae growth has reached an intercontinental level since 2011 the sprawling plant has spread to more and more parts of the atlantic ocean last year a $20000000.00 ton carpet of alkies stretched all the way from africa to central america but what has caused this explosive spread this idea is the one
9:25 am
aspect is the rising temperatures of the oceans are so global warming supports the growth of the 2nd aspect is an abundance of nutrients these can double their mass within 11 days if they have access to enough nutrients up due to the deforestation of the amazon jungle huge amounts of nutrient rich soil washed away into the oceans . several luxury resorts spend hundreds of thousands of euros each year cleaning the beaches once the algae reaches land it decomposes creating a punch and. then every year it's different but there seems to be more as the years go by when i. put a huge strain on local authorities and it's only going to be honest this stuff affects all activity on the beach you're expecting to find a clean sandy beach. but instead find it covered in elderly. what's worse is the
