the biggest composer of the time i can't even begin to imagine a world class one quarter center willers on a musical journey of discovery. with only. this week w. this is dead everyone is africa coming up on the program for the big one in mali a former colonel has been hauled out of retirement to lead mali as transitional council and dole is a towering figure with strong links to the army so how will the regional leaders who wanted a civilian in the job react to his appointment. and the doctor so we'll see you know i'll show you how physicians in cameroon and reaching patients who conned travel in the pandemic. also police have stepped up the night road props
7:31 pm
in kinshasa and they're mostly targeting taxis it's because of a rise in kidnappings in the city. i'm christine it's good to have your company west african beads is all yes to react to the appointment off the president of mali's transitional government dole pictured here in gray has been named interim president by needs is the 70 year old former defense minister is a retired colonel now the regional body ecowas head insisted that the president of the transitional government must be a civilian. last week the body threaten to step up economic sanctions and have posed a total embargo on demand caulked mali if that and other conditions were not met in
7:32 pm
mali however public opinion about those appointment is mixed. i would have liked the people to have chosen a politician because mali has been a democracy for almost 25 years and. i'm very happy because it's a purely political appointment he's also a career soldier. i think ultimately no man is suitable some and get things done a less divisive but the new president is among the least divisive personalities in the country i'm now joined by about a local she is chair of the african security sector network last pan african network off exposing organizations working in security sector reform on the program at any so we've just heard some different opinions about appointments. how do you think people in mali feel about having a military man as a transitional president. it's important to remember is that just after
7:33 pm
cooper and 18th august there was a lot of enthusiasm in st and also you know there are parts of the country but no no i think that feelings of people are more mixed including because so of course you can also be cool. elites do not necessarily agree we. really need to go in and so i think there are different feeling about these including because it and 5 areas i think sprint's some concerns the probation about. nomination. how is how the intel's appointment point are going to go down with regional leaders specifically ecowas who had said that they want to this of a.d.m.
7:34 pm
to leave the transition council. asked for a civilian to ease the transition not only the president also transition but also the prime minister so the name and the choice of the prime minister will be also a very important element but it is also important to remember is that a congress out also agreed to a longer transition no barriers initially as no there seems to agree to either 18 months transition good also or eliminate it will be important because the lousy curation of heads of state has been also required. to be solved it is one of their required and so we will see that they will accept decent notice that they are desperately exim to our prime minister who
7:35 pm
will be a need to be equally in charge of defense and security related matters. now that ecowas was very quick sample sanctions on mali following that that could have just wondered about these sanctions and how how much they could have an impact on on on the efforts by the transitional council just how uncomfortable could these sanctions make it for the transitional council. those tensions will have a lot of combat each say there are a to be continued to date you can use there are targeting specific goalies that gent it's either reality that on the ground it is more often that now that book relations and c.d.'s are a sobering from then and it will not be possible for zinni you are sorry to go there and we have does function because otherwise there will be and there is

7:40 pm
members why am. i mean. official statistics of kidnappings a hard to come by but surety says it's becoming more common for criminals posing as taxi drivers to kidnap women and demand a ransom from their families. own experience led her to start a campaign to raise awareness about the issue. i heard women complaining about the problem. and then when it happened to me i thought oh no we have to save others we have to save people's lives that's how all this began we made a promise that what happened to us wouldn't happen to at us at even. the women's activism is finally showing some results. least now acknowledge that the city is becoming more dangerous for women and are trying to do something about it. as
7:41 pm

7:42 pm
slashed the numbers of kidnappings from up to 8 kidnappings a day to nearly none at all. each. time that's where we'll leave it for the program today be sure to check. the stories on dot com forward slash africa or on facebook and now leave you with some inspiration from the amal jazz band in south sudan the band works with children seeking shelter from conflicts at the u.n. protection sites in. the north of the country. let me assure us as a jazz band music is everything so we decided to train youngsters here so they can learn about their culture there's a real challenge for displaced children across south sudan to keep in touch with their own cultures so we wanted to find a way to keep our traditions alive among the younger generation and i know you don't you see the music or hear it at least i hear it is.

tsunami are you concerned for not concerned to sebastian and sarah shelley to take you to the heart of the matter and knows who is just a few of the sisters who believe there's a conflict. on d w. how do you perform shakespeare's macbeth when actors can't even get close enough to play a murder scene coming up on arts and culture theater in the age of cove it and also on the show capturing america's diversity and divisions to photographers take their studio on the road and later the small town we're centuries of instrument making traditions live on from generation to generation.
7:45 pm
welcome to arts and culture anyone who has read or seen macbeth remembers the famous line out damn spot out i say as lady macbeth tries desperately to scrub her hands clean well since the coronavirus that we've all done plenty of hand washing theatres too are taking precautions as they reopen in places including here in germany. now i would. first up the powderpuff so this is it the return of theater to a kind of new normality macbeth macbeth applies his own make up. macbeth is almost alone on the stage of dressed and darts shall speak murders at a distance his desperation the rush of blood to the head his lust for power are all solitary moments backed by the band woods of burnham actor director christian
7:46 pm
friedel has bought a slimmed down version of his planned macbeth to the stage the new season because it searching for the best. show is a foretaste a theatrical trailer in which $31.00 people are missing and there are usually $37.00 people on stage and now we have the band and the too many bears so to speak and so of course it's a big difference to. the rehearsals in spring 2020 unimaginable now christian freedom is intense interaction with dancers actors and musicians it was supposed to be a monumental shakespeare evening with all the blood sweat and tears that theatre can muster. if god had it was almost ready in march but usually the last week is always the week were some things are changed decisions
7:47 pm
are made things are left out that's when you really get a look clay ready to pray and we were prevented from doing that. now 6 months later everything is back to square one at the start shellshock build trust and audience flow systems are being set up so theater goers have less contact with each other. warning signs are everywhere the theater has become a danger zone. on stage actors maintain one and a half meters distance or in more energetic scenes 6 meters. rule on stage and in the auditorium this makes for a more intimate but not necessarily easy production. and acting school that. whether a few people see it is very very difficult to convince them the room is not filled with an atmosphere that automatically comes alive so
7:48 pm
a little more has to happen almost and that's why it's such a challenge and i'm glad to be able to play at all. be. searching for macbeth in dressed in the time of corona the stage belongs to the lone warrior. michael krueger from 2 w.'s culture desk is here now to talk a little bit about the situation in future mike intimacy is normally such a big part of her it seems to have gone a little bit missing here absolutely nearly everything is for. cases and the the same theater we already saw is also performing the magic mountain the
7:49 pm
back at the moment and look at. a kid. that's stunning isn't it. but this is also the perfect place for the pandemic it's about patients of a senatorial where everybody's already obsessed with illness so that i just don't have to get very close to each other. oh my gosh i could just watch that for hours ok but here in germany you know we're really lucky we have the situation there is public funding for theatre not the situation everywhere still this pandemic has to be a huge financial blow to theaters yet they have to cut back and every possible way . and even in which is sold out that doesn't mean that they have already enough money. because most of the seed have to remain empty and we all and the people also expect that we saw that in mind that for example the opera house filled the seats
7:50 pm
but it backfired they had to cancel the show the people kept them protest because of a lack of social distancing especially in the highest and cheapest so if there's touches they can't just sell out these it is ok so it's really hard to get back to normal on the other hand we are seeing some really creative solutions and very scary ones there we hope and make some bull this is not only zombie apocalypse it's also a drive in theater in tokyo the company started this as a way to get close to the audience safely so visitors can be afraid of everything just not of the crew is because everybody's safe and they'll come and this is also a car washes are it yeah after after that performance the zombies khelein the car. ok well if we could go to tokyo places i could go now anyone who is following news from the united states can see divisions in that country growing practically by the day the new book divided we stand shows the people of america as

8:02 pm
all trump was among the 1st speakers and in some of his comments he lashed out at a china watch. as we pursue this bright future we must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world china in the earliest days of the virus china lock down travel down mystically while allowing flights to leave china and infect the world china condemned my travel ban on their country even as they cancelled domestic flights unlocked citizens and their homes while just moments after president trump's address was aired the chinese president xi jinping presented his prerecorded video message sticklers that. we should follow the guidance of science if we play to the leading role of the world health organization launch
8:03 pm
a joint international response to this pandemic. attempt of politicizing the issue of stigmatization must be rejected what a contrast there in the speeches of president donald trump of president ping and luckily we have here richard walker our chief international editor to shed some more light i mean it was at times very offensive what president trump said i mean just quoting here what he just said elise displayed on the world were free to china what did you make of the contrast there yeah well it is the kind of message that he has put across many times in campaign rallies in the united states to his supporters but of course his one thing to do that in in a rally he's surrounded by thousands of adoring supporters it's quite another to do it in an international forum like this to throw it in xi jinping face essentially. but we should bear in mind that there are questions being asked about china's
8:04 pm
handling of the early stages of the outbreak in particular in december january. whether it was fully transparent with information with the world health organizations and with other countries around the world so that. there are definitely concerns about that investigation's ongoing of course she jumping throws that right back and says that implicitly that donald trump is trying to politicize this of course the kind of context in which we're looking at this is on the one hand there is there's an election coming up very soon in the united states donald trump needs to get his message across which is blaming china essentially for what critics would say is problems of the united states' own handling of this virus but then the big picture is that the united states and china are on collision course and we're just seeing kind of you know parts of that playing out here at the u.n. today the other very conspicuous element of president trumps a prerecorded speech it echoed a certain magic themes that they're emphasizing national interest i suggest we take
8:05 pm
a listen and then we continue our conversation. as president i have rejected the failed approaches of the past and i am proudly putting america 1st just as you should reporting your characters for his speech was very short 567 minutes i thought it was very brief very the tone very bellicose now urging everybody to you know protect their act within their national interest what did you make of that yeah i mean he has had that sort of message at the united nations before but it was very compact or very kind of punchy in this case. every time he said it is just so striking isn't it because it is absolutely the opposite of the whole idea of the united nations that you can only put your own country 1st because there are common interests around the world which countries need to cooperate to work towards don't have a cause is kind of abandoned that he said no this is the wrong way to go he's walked out of the paris climate agreement he's walked out of the world health organization
8:06 pm
he's walked out of the deal to try and limit iran's nuclear program. what some people would say is it can serve as a bit of an own goal because what afterwards she jinping speech in xi jinping speech he came across as the as the sort of calm proponents of multilateralism of working together saying we should work together to create a better world through these multilateral institutions whereas china's role of multilateralism is highly questionable as well multilateralism where it suits it but very aggressive behavior way that suits it so to an extent people might say that you know the trump tone played into xi jinping his hands in particular because he jinping used his speech to say that china was going to be more ambitious with his time and change goals some people will be coming away from that and think he will but china looks like the more reasonable partner study in contrasts
8:07 pm
sincerely thank you richard walker our international chief international editor thank you so much for your analysis. and in a sad reminder of the toll that the global pandemic is taking of the u.s. death toll from covert 1000 has reached the grim milestone of more than 200000 according to johns hopkins university well that's the highest number for any country in the world so far accounting for more than one in 5 covert deaths globally is putting president donald trump's handling of the pandemic in the spotlight as he campaigns for a 2nd term in office on average the u.s. is now losing around 800 lives every day to the virus jumps democratic rival joe biden says trump's quote lies and incompetence as he calls them are the main reason the united states has seen so many deaths from the virus. while a with the u.s. having passed that sad marker i asked health expert peter drove back from oxford
8:08 pm
university how much is politics to blame. the united states has 4 percent of the world's population and about 20 percent of the world's deaths from covert 19 it wasn't the 1st to be hit it's the wealthiest nation in the world with perhaps the greatest expert greatest concentration of medical and public health expertise anywhere in the world there is no reason that it should be this way and i think a lot of what we've seen over the last couple of months this tragic toll really has to come down to failures of leadership peter drawback there speaking to me earlier from oxford university ok let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world. in the u.s. the republican senator mitt romney has said he supports holding a vote to fill the vacant seat on the u.s. supreme court before the presidential election all the announcement all but ensures that president trump can have a vote on his nominee despite democratic objections trump says he will announce his choice on saturday. night. european council president shall michel has gone into

8:12 pm
is filmed by the migrants this is on the 17th of june and you can see that there's a coast guard boat from the greek coast guard speeding cars creating waves and in the background is another boat now that the migrants are recognised by its identification a $1411.00 it's a german navy boat the berlin and the german navy has confirmed that it was in the area at the time now this particular incident ended when the turkish coast guard intervened and rescued the migrants well we spoke to an ngo of the barrow who told us that this video shows that the german navy is now clearly implicated in pushbacks. instead of just witnessing illegal pushbacks and current behavior by then it coast guards the crew of the talent and set of the phone to rescue because they can see overcrowded rather go is padded head of the mission in
8:13 pm
distress and there is a duty to perform at risk here in a situation like that as it is stated by international maritime law. and joe have we heard from the german army has the bomb is very has given us a statement today acknowledged that there captains have a duty to rescue people at sea of course and that it was taking part in a nato operation however the spokesman said that if greek and turkish coast guards are fulfilling their judy of rescue in their own territorial waters then intervention by a german ship is neither required nor permitted and on one occasion the german navy did intervene and did rescue a boat towing it to the island of lesbos but the ngo marilla beram said there were multiple other occasions when the navy stood by and did nothing and on those occasions it says the german navy was witness to a potential crime and should provide evidence and testimony about that and now we have the european parliamentary committee on justice calling for an independent
