German government set to cut growth outlook In an official growth report, due to be released on Thursday, the German government will revise down its 2018 growth forecast from 2.3 percent previously to 1.8 percent now, according to the news agency Reuters. Moreover, the growth estimate for 2019 would also be slashed from 2.1 percent to 1.8 percent, Reuters reported on Wednesday after seeing the document. The downward revision was the result of tightening conditions in the German labor market, slowing construction activity and weakening global trade, the document said.

Nikki Haley, Donald Trumpʼs global enabler, was no moderate Her record disproves that narrative, however, writes DWʼs Michael Knigge

Nikki Haleyʼs departure from the UN is being framed as the Trump administration losing one of its few moderate Republicans and voices of reason. At this point it is almost moot to decry this White Houseʼs ongoing revolving door mentality. It is still unclear whether the amicable-seeming announcement ofNikki Haleyʼs departurewas long-planned, or if, notwithstanding her unprompted rejection, she might be plotting to run against Donald Trump for the United States presidency in 2020. Ultimately, the speculation adds little to evaluating howthe US has conducted itself on the world stage. Letʼs instead focus on what we do know, and that is Haleyʼs record as US ambassador at the United Nations. Put bluntly, her record is bleak. Sure, during her twoyear tenure in New York she has given vocal support tocertain human rights issuesand was one of the more outspoken administration figures criticizing Russia. But this is not what she will be remembered for. Haley, one of the earliest and most high-profile female members of Trumpʼs Cabinet, will be remembered for what happened during her tenure: With her support, the US pulled out of theUNbacked international climate deal, the UN Security Council-backedIran nuclear deal, the UN cultural organiza-

tion UNESCO and theUN Human Rights Council. She will be remembered for threatening other UN members via Twitter that the US "will be taking names" of nations that supported a purely symbolic resolution denouncing Washingtonʼs decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. She will be remembered for advancing a new and dangerous principle whereby the US only gives aid to nations it deems friendly, meaning that they have conducted themselves, and voted at the UN, in line with the Trump administrationʼs positions. And she probably wonʼt be, but should be remembered for the fact that during her tenure Washington ended its funding for the UN Population Fund, the bodyʼs reproductive health agency, and reinstated thesocalled Global Gag Rulethat prohibits the US government from funding international health groups that also advocate for abortions. Taken together, Haley has been an ardent supporter of Trumpʼs "America First" policy, which openly advocates a winnertake-all approach that is fundamentallyat odds with the core principles of the UN.

Bulgarian journalist murder suspect arrested in Germany Bulgarian officials confirmed on Wednesday that a suspect was taken into custody in Germany for the murder of Bulgarian journalist Viktoria Marinova. Bulgariaʼs interior minister identified the suspect as Severin K., a 21-year-old Bulgarian citizen with a criminal record. "We have enough proof linking this person to the scene of the crime," Interior Minister Mladen Marinov said at a press conference. German authorities said on Wednesday that theyʼd arrested Severin K. on Tuesday evening outside the northern city of Hamburg on a European arrest warrant. Prosecutors in the northern German state of Lower Saxony said theyʼre currently verifying the conditions that are required to extradite him to Bulgaria.

Mallorca: Deadly storm ravages Spainʼs popular tourist destination At least ten people were killed in torrential rains and flash floods that hitthe Spanish resort island of Mallorcaover night, emergency services said Wednesday. Most of the victims were discovered in the town of Sant Llorenc and another in Sʼillot. An additional six people were still missing following the storm. "The situation is a disaster and weʼre trying to locate survivors and help people but everything is flooded and people cannot leave their homes," said Antonia Bauza, a senior official at San Llorenc mayorʼs office. Madrid deployed military units to the Balearic Island to assist emergency workers as they searched for missing persons and cleared the streets of debris.

Ceasefire on Israel-Gaza border largely holds as UN warns sides are on ʼbrink of warʼ

A ceasefire announced by Hamas largely held along the Israel-Gaza border on Sunday, a day after the most intense exchange of fire between Israel and the Palestinian group since the 2014 Gaza war. Israeli warplanes carried out dozens of airstrikes in the densely populated Gaza Strip on Saturday on what it said were Hamas military, training and supply targets, while Hamas and Islamic Jihad fired nearly 200 rockets and mortars at Israel. Read more: Israel and Gazaʼs militant groups agree to ceasefire The Israeli airstrikes wounded more than 20 people and killed two teenage boys, Palestinian health officials said, while a Hamas rocket injured four Israelis. Hamas, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007, and Islamic Jihad announced the Egyptian and UNbrokered ceasefire late Saturday. The Israeli military said its response would depend on the situation on the ground. After the ceasefire announcement, four mortars were fired into Israel early Sunday. In response, Israeli planes destroy at least one launch site. Israel also carried out three airstrikes later in the day on what it said were Hamas squads launching incendiary balloons and kites across the border. 2

Pope Francis compares abortion to ʼhiring a hit manʼ Conservative Catholics have accused Francis of not speaking out enough on hot button cultural issues

Iraq braces for more unrest as Basra protests gather pace An estimated 200 protesters gathered on Monday morning at the main gate leading to three of Iraqʼs major oil fields in the southern oil-exporting city of Basra. Protests in Basra, Iraqʼs second-largest city, started last Tuesdaywhen security forces opened fire, killing one person and wounding five. They soon spread to other provinces.

But an ongoing political crisis and the recent rhetoric of Grand Ayatollah alSistani, the top Shiʼite cleric in the country have also clearly aggravated the situation.

In some of his harshest comments to date on abortion, Pope Francis compared the procedure to a mafia-style killing. Pope Francisrailed against abortion and euthanasia on Wednesday, saying both are part of what he dubbed todayʼs "throwaway culture."Addressing worshippers in the Vatican, Francis noted that some people defend abortion and reproductive choice as "safeguarding other rights." "How can an act that suppresses innocent and defenseless life as it blossoms be therapeutic, civil or simply human?" he asked the assembled faithful. In unprepared remarks, Francis then asked the crowd if it was fair "to take out a human life" or "hire a hit man" in order to

Trade tensions hit Chinese growth Chinese growth slowed slightly in the second quarter as the worldʼs number two economy faced a snowballing trade fight with the United States, after Washington and Beijing slapped new tariffs on $34 billion (€29 billion) of each othersʼ goods earlier this month, with threats of further tariffs on goodsworth an additional $200 billion. Despite this escalation, the Chinese economy expanded by 6.7 percent in the second quarter from a year ago. This is down from 6.8 percent in the first quarter, according to official figures released on Monday by the National Bureau of Statistics. Nonetheless, the growth was still higher than the gov-

Wednesdayʼs comments were some of the harshest that Pope Francis has yet made against abortion. In June, Francis criticized the decision by some couples to have an abortion after pre-natal tests revealed birth defects or genetic disorders. At the time, Francis said the use of such pre-natal screenings wasthe "white glove" equivalent to Nazi-era eugenics programs. ernmentʼs annual target of around 6.5 percent. China faced an "extremely complex environment both at home and abroad," said Mao Shengyong, a spokesperson for the national statistics bureau, noting that growth nonetheless remained strong.

UK reveals fighter jet ʼTempestʼ for post-Brexit era Williamson said the "world-beating" jet can be used unmanned, as a drone, or with pilots. It is scheduled to be operational by 2035. The UK is to invest 2 billion pounds ($2.7 billion, €2.3 billion) to 2025 in the stealth warplane, which will involve British companies BAE Systems and Rolls-

Royce as well as Anglo-Italian Leonardo and pan-European MBDA. Aiming to ensure UK leadership in defense Williamson said the program was designed to ensure Britainʼs continued leadership in fighter technology and control of airspace in future conflicts. Last year,France and Germany signed an agreementto develop Europeʼs next-generation fighter jet to replace the aging Rafale and Eurofighter jet by 2040, involving Europeʼs Airbus and Franceʼs Dassault Aviation. Following the 2016 Brexit referendum, Airbus moved to partner with Dassault at the expense of Britainʼs BAE Systems. There are concerns in Britain that its defense industry may be shut out from EU plans for next-generation fighter jets, although, officially, both projects have invited other companies to join.

IMF: Risks to global financial system rise In its latest Financial Stability Report, the IMF has warned of greater global financial risks. It highlighted rising public and corporate debt levels in many nations and capital outflows in emerging economies. In its twice-annual assessment of global financial stability, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said conditions remained broadly conducive to economic growth, but were at risk of worsening should emerging markets continue to underperformand should trade tensions escalate. "New vulnerabilities have emerged, and the resilience of the global financial system has yet to be tested," the IMF said. It worried that market players "appeared complacent"

Two Australians sentenced over Airbnb killing in Melbourne An Australian court passed prison sentences for two Melbourne residents, Ryan Smart and Craig Levy, on Wednesday, after they confessed to killing their Airbnb guest Ramis Jonuzi after a dispute over 210 Australian dollars ($152, €130) in rent. Ryan Smart received a nine-year sentence and will serve at least six years before parole, with Levy being sentenced to seven and a half years and spending at least four and a half years in jail. Both men had pleaded guilty to manslaughter. Smart and Levy shared a Melbourne house with the third housemate, who is also alleged to have taken part in the attack. They admitted to assaulting Jonuzi in October last year after he extended his stay and was unable to pay for it. The victim was kicked and punched until he passed out inside the Levy-owned property. The beating continued outside after Jonuzi regained consciousness. According to the prosecutors, Smart at one point held the 36-year-old in a leg lock and forced Jonuzi to check his bank account balance, confirming that he only had six Australian dollars.

The IMF specifically mentioned the situation in Argentina and Turkey — two countries with heavy external debt. Both nations had to raise interest rates sharply in recent months.Argentina had to seek financial aid from the IMF, including the latest deal for a $57 billion (€49.5 billion) loan.

Non-stop madness: How long-haul flights affect your mind

Long-haul travel is as common as cola. Weʼre flying ever greater distances more often and non-stop, like 19 hours from Singapore to New York. But the psychological and biological effects are under-researched. It seems I have subconsciously developed a coping strategy. When I fly long-haul, I tell myself Iʼm entering a tunnel, thereʼs nothing I can do but sit tight, and at some point, whether itʼs 24 hours later in Australia, or after 19 hours non-stop to the US, Iʼll get out at the other end. All that happens in between can be a complete blur for all I care. Occasionally, I will allow the odd passenger to rile me — when

stragglers boarding late rub their bums and bellies in my face, or let the straps on their bags whiplash my head. Other than that I am automatic zen. You certainly wonʼt find me defecating in an aisle, as, I am told, a crazed passenger once did on a longhaul flight with Qantas. I wonʼt even get angry or anxious — as some studies suggest people do — while walking through the perceived luxury of first, business or premium economy class. I am happy sitting out back with the rest of the cattle, because I know that if we go down, weʼre all going down. Ultimately, ashes is ashes, no matter where you sit in life.

Crowdfunding for dams — why Pakistani PM Khanʼs drive is not feasible The construction of two dams has become a major policy priority for the new Pakistani government, headed by Prime Minister Imran Khan. The fact was evident from Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshiʼs engagements in the United States, which he is currently visiting. On Tuesday, Qureshi, who is due to speak at the UN General Assembly on September 29 and meet with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on October 2, urged the Pakistani diaspora in the US to donate generously to the governmentʼs fund for the construction of dams.

Will new train boost trade in Southeast Asia?

Itʼs slow and not as comfortable yet as trains in developed countries, but Cambodians were nonetheless proud when the first train in decades left the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh for border town Poipet last month, effectively connecting the northern part of Cambodia with the south. This rail line will soon cross the border and connect with Thailand. Itʼs expected to become popular among travelers and boost trade between Thailand and Cambodia. Read more: Cambodian girls defy gender barriers to excel in technology Sitting in the train to Poipet on a quiet Sunday morning, music teacher Hang Sothanun said that heʼs happy that he can now take the train. "I have to travel all over the country, most of the time by bus or by car. But the train is really nice. Itʼs relaxing and it offers a very nice view of the countryside," he told DW. During decades of war and poverty, Cambodiaʼs railway lines, which were initially built at the time of the French colonial rule, were severely damaged and neglected. Only two years ago, the first line in the country was reopened, connecting Phnom Penh to the coastal city Sihanoukville.

US loses its shine as investment location for German firms Presenting the results of a poll among its member companies, the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany on Tuesday said German firms had become less confident in doing business in the United States. It said that over two-fifths of the companies polled stated the US had become less attractive as a business location in the wake of a transAtlantic trade conflictthat looks defused for the moment, but by no means resolved. While 82 percent of respondents acknowledged that economic relations between the US and Germany were still "strong or very strong," 42 percent of the German firms polled said the US had lost some of its former attractiveness to them. Only 20 percent of the US firms polled said the same about Germany.

Visiting Kenya a year into its plastic bag ban

US trade official hopes for breakthrough in NAFTA talks

In 2013, student and photographer James Wakibia was so sick of seeing the plastic bags that littered the route between his house and the town of Nakuru, some 150 kilometers northwest of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, he felt he had to take action. "They were everywhere, in the trees, in the puddles and on the road. They were like air, just everywhere," he recalls. Two years later, he launched a social media campaign with the hashtag #ISupportBanPlasticsKE, calling for an end to single-useplastic bags. Wakibiaʼs activism attracted widespread attention, including from the government in Nairobi, which put a ban at the top of its to-do list. Plastic carrier bags and their smaller, thinner counterparts used for packaging fruit and vegetables have now been outlawed for a year. Read more: Plastic fantastic: Nigeriaʼs carrier bag fashionistas "Kenya has come a long way and has taken a very bold step," Wakibia said. "Most other governments donʼt dare to take this step because they are very connected to the industry."

On the eve of the resumption of high-level talks between US and Mexican officials on Friday, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said he was hopeful that "in the next several days weʼll have a breakthrough" innegotiations. Speaking during a White House cabinet meeting with US President Donald Trump on Thursday, Lighthizer however also noted that there was still "some difficult issues to work on."

Climate change: EU to seek stricter car emissions cut by 2030

A day after the UN warned the world was "running out time" on climate change, EU ministers have battled over the extent of emission cuts on carmakers. Germany is concerned more ambitious cuts would be bad for business. European Union countries have agreed to pursue a 35 percent cut in car emissions by 2030, as part of global efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and limit global warming. The details are set to be finalized in talks beginning on Wednesday with the European Parliament and the European Commission. Concern over a UN report on global warming released on Monday led EU environment ministers to meet in Luxembourg, where they talked for more than 13 hours in search for a compromise. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report warned that the world was running out of timeto avoid a "climate catastrophe" and that it will need to take "unprecedented" steps to avoid a dangerous rise in temperature.

The last mile — What failed in the Sulawesi tsunami disaster What failed? And what would have worked better?

When Septemberʼs tsunami struck the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, residents werenʼt warned in time. Less than two weeks after the Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami struck on September 28,the death toll had reached nearly 2,000. And thousands more were missing. The 7.5 magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami, with waves up to 7 meters (23 feet) high. A nearby warning system, developed by the German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ) "worked as planned," according to the organiza-

tionʼs director of geoservices. But local authorities did not tell residents on Sulawesi to evacuate— a failure in the ʼlast mileʼ of the warning system. It depends on the level of capability within the tsunami warning center to analyze a threat ... And whether the criteria that needs to be satisfied to issue a warning was met — unless those criteria are satisfied, they will never issue a warning.

Frankfurt Book Fair: Spotlight on Georgia, a country of contrasts Despite its geographic location, Tbilisi looks very much like a European capital, lively and oddly beautiful. In the 19th century, merchants, bankers and widely traveled tradesmen created wide streets and spacious mansions in the city center. However, the old town is full of narrow cobbled streets. There is scaffolding everywhere as many ornate buildings are being restored: Georgiaʼs capital is shedding the crumbling remnants of the Soviet era. Prize-winning Georgian playwright and critic Davit Gabunia has an eye on the changes in his city, the country and its people.

Where is the young republic headed after decades of Soviet occupation, and how is it dealing with its past? "We need many more years of stability, peace and an economic upswing before we can start dealing with the past," says Gabunia. Georgiaʼs past is marked by centuries of foreign rule, exploitation and oppression, Stalinʼs system of injustice, Soviet propaganda and finally, the hard times after independence in 1991, including unstable power structures, a dilapidated economy, corruption, violence and the battle for the renegade republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism win Raif Badawi Award “We have chosen Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) because it is committed to informing the public and raising transparency in an increasingly difficult environment, often operating at risk to the journalists’ lives," said the jury of the FriedrichNaumann Foundation for Freedom Wednesday of its decision to bestow its award for courageous journalists on the group. The jury statement described the ARIJ, an independent association of journalists active across the Middle East, as "a beacon of light in a darkening world." "Networks like ARIJ are a role model for journalists throughout the region," it added. "Journalists who collaborate, cooperate on investigations, offer each other mutual support and publish collectively are stronger together than alone and can achieve more."

A new exhibition celebrates 100 years of Budapest’s Gellért Hotel A recreated Baroque-style guest room, photos of the building taken during World War II and Communist-era posters reflect the history of Budapest’s most legendary hotel, the Gellért. A new exhibition at the Museum of Commerce & Catering celebrates the centenary of this institution which opened on 24 September 1918. Attached to the hotel is Budapest’s Art Nouveau Gellért Baths, whose outdoor wave pool, also illustrated at the museum, was the first of its kind in the world. Tucked away in the cobblestoned district of Óbuda, the former residence of Hungarian writer Gyula Krúdy is now home to a charming museum. Here, permanent displays include old-fashioned shop interiors illustrating the history of commerce and catering. This same building also hosts relevant seasonal exhibitions, such as the recently opened Gellért 100 to commemorate the centenary of the Gellért Hotel, a splendid Art Nouveau landmark towering above the Buda riverfront. Opened during the turmoil of World War I, during its long history, the Gellért has accommodated the likes of former US president Richard Nixon and the Dalai Lama. They both enjoyed the hotel’s fine facilities that are now brought to life through historic objects and images currently on show at the museum.

Monaco: Thierry Henry on manager shortlist to replace Leonardo Jardim

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is being considered as a replacement for manager Leonardo Jardim at Monaco. The French club are expected to sack their Portuguese boss, 44, with the team third from bottom in Ligue 1 with six points from nine games. Henry, 41, who ison the shortlistfor a similar role at Aston Villa, began his professional career at Monaco and helped them win Ligue 1 in 1997. Jardim led the club to another French title in 2017, their first since 2000. The former Sporting Lisbon manager was appointed by Monaco in 2014 and helped develop players such as Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, Atletico Madridʼs Thomas Lemar, and Manchester City pair Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy. Jardim also guided the French side to the Champions League semi-finals during the 2016-17 campaign.

London Broncos have long-term ambition to win Super League title Promoted London Broncos must have the ambition to win Super League in the future, says head coach Danny Ward. The Broncos will be back in the top flight in 2019 afterbeating Toronto Wolfpack 4-2 in the Million Pound Gameon Sunday. "We need to make it work, have a five-year plan of where we want to be," Ward told BBC Radio London. "Next year is going to be tough but we want a long-term vision to make London the best club in the country." He added: "We donʼt just want to compete in Super League, but win it. We are not there just to survive." Ward, who took charge following the departure of Andrew Henderson at the end of last season, described their victory over the Wolfpack in Canada as "one of the proudest moments" of his career. "What a performance, what a day and what an achievement - I am still on a massive high," he said on their return to England. "To lead the club into the Million Pound Game and win promotion is one of my biggest ever achievements."

DW has all the build-up ahead of the doubleheaders with the Netherlands and

World Cup winners. Wingers Leroy Sane and Julian Draxler were the men put up to face the media this afternoon and the pair were in relaxed form.

Sebastian Vettel v Max Verstappen and why F1 has too many penalties Former F1 driver Jolyon Palmer, who left Renault during the 2017 season, has joined the BBC team to offer insight and analysis from the point of view of the competitors. The driversʼ championship seems all but over after a calamitous weekend for Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel in Japan. Not for the first time, both team and driver made mistakes at Suzuka, and Vettel again became tangled up

with a rival in a race incident. The result is Vettel is 67 points behind Lewis Hamilton in the championship, and it all could be over by the end of the next race, the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on 21 October. ButVettelʼs collision with Red Bullʼs Max Verstappenwas not the only controversial incident in Japan. And each one raised questions about how F1 is being policed by governing body the FIA.
