we are not here to quantify that sort of allegation, but if there are worries that have been undue interference into hong kong affairs, which should come under a high degree of autonomy, then the chief executive has to reflect those sentiments and speak up on behalf of the people. yes. so would it be fair to imagine that you might have a conversation with president xi which goes — please, make sure that no security services from the mainland operate undercover on hong kong soil? will you be having that conversation? i will be very honoured to have a conversation with president xi on occasions, hopefully on the istjuly. carrie lam, thank you so much forjoining us. pleasure. are watching newsday. it is yoga day around the world. we will look at how it has become a
global industry. there was a bomb in the city centre. a code word known to be one used by the ira was given. army bomb experts were examining a suspect van when there was a huge explosion. the south african parliament has destroyed the foundation of apartheid by abolishing the population registration act, which for a0 years forcibly classified each citizen according to race. germany's parliament, the bundestag, has voted by a narrow majority to move the seat of government from bonn to berlin. berliners celebrated into the night but the decision was greeted with shock in bonn. just a day old and the royal baby is tonight sleeping in his cot at home. early this evening, the new prince was taken by his mother and father to their apartments in kensington palace. the real focus of attention today was valentina tereshkova, the world's first woman cosmonaut. what do you think of the russian woman in space? i think it's a wonderful achievement and i think we might be able to persuade the wife it would be a good idea
if i could to get her to go up there for a little while. welcome back. this is newsday. i'm rico hizon. i'm babita sharma, in london. our top stories: rico hizon. i'm babita sharma, in london. ourtop stories: in rico hizon. i'm babita sharma, in london. our top stories: in belgium there has been an attempted terrorist attack in the central station of brussels. nobody but the attacker was hurt. officials say they don't know whether the man is still alive. hong kong has said she will not be able to guarantee freedom of speech in the territory —— hong kong's leader. as we have been hearing, a suspected suicide bomber at the central station in brussels and what authorities say is a terror incident. in london police are still
questioning a man in connection with the attack on muslim worshippers in north london on monday. nine people we re north london on monday. nine people were taken to hospital and one man who fell ill before the attack died at the scene. you have to lift the ban. the chaos caused by the attack on sunday night was captured in these dramatic new pictures. a hired van had ploughed into a group of people marking the holy muslim month of ramadan. nine ended up in hospital and one man died. amongst the crowd were abdullah and his 13—year—old son. today they were recovering at home in their garden. because abdullah has little english, his son spoke for both of them. i saw an angry driver in the van, in a company van. he looked at the muslims. he drove through and hit seven or eight people. one was underneath a van.
my dad got hit on his shoulder and next to his legs. the doctors say my ankle is broken. the hired van ran over this man's foot and ankle, breaking them both. he was allowed home from hospital today. andy told me he had been trying to help the man who died when he was hit. i fall down. i look and i see the guy bleeding on the head. another guy lying next to me and he'sjust kind of unconscious. so i stood up to try and help those guys. and then when i stand up, i fall down. the other guys came to me and said, you don't have to stand. the guy is going to strike again.
this was a cold, calculated cruelty to cause chaos and to divide communities. witnesses have told us that the van came down the road at speed, turning into this cul—de—sac and knocking down the worshippers as it came through. it then came to a rest between those two bollards. the bollard that it hit has been moved. when it came to a stop, a young man was trapped underneath the van. he has survived. the suspected driver, darren osborne from cardiff, is being held on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and terrorist offences. when he was grabbed by bystanders at the scene, the local imam intervened, explaining today why he wanted to deliver the suspect safely to the police. had anything happened to him, then extra bloodshed does not deliverjustice to the families. and it provides no answers. and as the horror of sunday night
sinks in, there are suggestions tonight that the government might be rethinking changes to police funding that would affect the larger forces, like london's metropolitan police. we're stretched and i am talking with the mayor and i'm talking with the government about the resources that we need to get, i believe, in the future. after three months of terror, the government's approach the police funding may be starting to change. daniel sandford, bbc news. it is international inyoga day and over 180 countries are celebrating it and it has been treated with some salutations and now —— downward facing dogs across the world. we have a look at how much today is benefiting businesses. and agent practice given a modern

needed to be managed not shut down. people voted to leave the eu, not to make themselves poorer. a year on from the referendum, and cars waiting in sunny southampton for a journey to the continent of europe. exports to the european union like these are a key driver of our economy, an economy the chancellor said will now be at the heart of those complicated brexit negotiations. speaking at the mansion house in central london, philip hammond said without a flexible deal with the eu, the economy could be at risk. when the british people voted last june, they did not vote to become poorer or less secure. in a way that prioritises british jobs and underpins britain's prosperity. alongside mr hammond today, the governor of the bank of england.
and that there would need to be a transition period after the completion of the brexit process in 2019. a monetary policy committee cannot prevent weaker growth that is likely to accompany the transition to new trading arrangements with the eu. it can support households and businesses, as they adjust to such profound change. two great economic offices of state. here is the bank of england, and about two miles down the road that way, the treasury. and the leaders of those two institutions, i think, came together today to make one big point about brexit. put the economic wealth of britain first, they both said. even if that means some sacrifices on most controversial issues of sovereignty and strict controls on immigration. the city may support that position. but from mr hammond's on colleagues, a reminder of why many voted brexit but there is also a strong worry
amongst people in britain that people are coming to the united kingdom, using our public services, who may not be contribute into our national wealth. that is the problem of the government will deal with, and we'll deal with that in a reasonable way over a period of time. there were plenty of warnings today from the chancellor higher prices, struggling consumers, the need for a good brexit deal. and even those who see bold opportunities ahead, or glass half empty. clearly that has meant there is higher inflation, and that has had a knock—on effect for real incomes. but on the other hand, there has been a much—needed boost to exports. we really did need that boost because the currency was overvalued. it was a day for stepping back and taking the wider view
on the economy. an economy for consumers so uncertain, mr carney said there would be no interest rate rises in the near future. sunny today, yes. but there could be more squally weather ahead. kamal ahmed, bbc news. kan emergency bbc news. kan emergency bbc news team with the aftermath of the grenfell tower fire with the aftermath of the grenfell towerfire said all the with the aftermath of the grenfell tower fire said all the survivors have been found temporary accommodation. nearly a week on from the disaster in which at least 79 people died, our correspondent has been talking to some families about their experience. last week grenfell was home. this time last tuesday meals were being eaten, tvs watched, children in bed. now, it's a place where families are lost, where those who survived can't return, and they are still searching for help.
