affected that he might have been behind it. six men will face criminal charges for their roles in the disaster at hillsborough stadium. 96 people lost their lives at a football match in sheffield in 1989. amongst those facing charges are the policeman who was the match commander in the day, david dukinfield who faces charges of manslaughter by gross negligence. also former south yorkshire police chief sir norman patterson will be charged with misconduct. after they heard the news some of the victim ‘s relatives said it was a day of mixed emotions. they've had inquiries, investigations and inquests, but the hillsborough families have never had public prosecutions. they've fought for nearly 30 years for this moment. i'm absolutely delighted.
we've got today everything we could've asked for. the decisions by the cps in my opinion were correct, or are correct. and we look forward to the due process through the courts of law. in 1989 the police officer in charge at hillsborough was david duckenfield. he will now face prosecution. there is sufficient evidence to charge former chief superintendent david duckenfield with the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 men, women and children. the match commander ordered the opening of an exit gate, through which the fans poured onto overcrowded terraces. he is charged with the manslaughter of all but one of the victims. tony bland died four years later, too late to be included in the charges. in the years after hillsborough, sir norman bettison rose through the ranks to become chief constable of merseyside and later west yorkshire.
he is charged with misconduct in a public office, accused of lying about the fans being to blame. he said he is disappointed to be charged, and will vigorously defend his innocence. andrew brookes was one of those killed at hillsborough. he was 26. his sister louise has long campaigned for justice, and was in warrington today to hear that charges will be brought. it's another event where my parents haven't been alive to see it or to hear it, and it's notjust my parents — its other hillsborough families who have gone to their graves never seeing today. the families were told that 23 suspects were originally considered for prosecution. in the event, six will face trial. graham mackrell was the sheffield wednesday company secretary — responsible for safety, he is accused of failing to carry out his duties.
peter metcalf was the solicitor acting for south yorkshire police. he is charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to amendments made to police statements. at home today, he would not answer questions. any comment to make at all? no comment. former chief superintendent donald denton, in the middle here, is also charged with perverting the course of justice, said to have overseen the process of altering the statements. former detective chief inspector alan foster faces the same charge, accused of being central to the process of changing statements. nobody from the ambulance service is being prosecuted, and no organisation will face corporate charges over hillsborough, which has disappointed some. a mixed bag. a couple of names that we didn't expect, and a few that we think have been omitted. there will be six people facing criminal charges who might not have done if we hadn't have been resilient and all stuck together and fought this long fight.
professor phil scraton has spent years working to expose what happened at hillsborough, and says the passage of time must have had an effect on the number of charges. if we'd had the kind of investigation then that we have had now, and the kind of attention paid to the detail of prosecutable charges then as we have now, i think we would see a lot more prosecutions. the youngest to die at hillsborough was just ten years old. the oldest was a pensioner. they were all unlawfully killed. there have long been calls for justice. now, nearly 30 years after they died, those said to be responsible will face trial, and the prospect ofjail. judith moritz, bbc news, warrington. much more information available should you wish to see it on the bbc website. we must turn to venezuelan excellence of extraordinary scenes are being paid out, the supreme
court is being attacked by grenades and gunfire coming from helicopter. if you have not seen this video and all surety. and the man who is claiming to be behind all of this is this police officer who scored oscar peres. he released the statement saying he is pa rt released the statement saying he is part of a coalition who are all against what he is calling the criminal government. you will not be surprised to hear his whereabouts are not known at the moment. the president is calling this terrorism and here is a statement he made earlier on television. translation i have activated the national armed forces to defend the
right to peace and i'm sure that sooner or right to peace and i'm sure that sooner or later right to peace and i'm sure that sooner or later we right to peace and i'm sure that sooner or later we will capture the helicopter and those who have made this armed terrorist attack against the institutions of the country. as if this complex enough, let me show you this from the us senator rubio. in other words a senior republican senator is sharing allegations that the whole thing was set up. to get some help on what we can be definitive about. it was stolen from a police place where this guy he was pa rt a police place where this guy he was part of the police court to limit courts took it alongside another person who is seen in a video and flew it. now there are a number of questions, how was he able to do that in an area which was protected
by the government, especially drones are not allowed to fly so it is not clear but he took it from the police stalk and flipped over the city in company of another guy. he is there and he made a statement on his instagram account and it turns out he is active on social media and has been posting allsorts. he was part ofa been posting allsorts. he was part of a movie a few years ago in 2013 which was produced by the government and the plot had something to do with the operations of the police and he was a part of it. that is the reason why some leaders of the opposition are saying there are many strange factors around this. but do we have any hard evidence to back up these claims from the opposition that this is all a big plan to allow the president to bring the army and? know and the government is adamant that this is part of a plot with the cia in the united states and they
are promising that they are going to ca ptu re are promising that they are going to capture this person and they are going to recover the helicopter but as of now there is no sign of where he is and where the helicopter is. as of now there is no sign of where he is and where the helicopter islj wa nt to ta ke he is and where the helicopter islj want to take a few minutes to put this in context, recently these are some of the protests we have seen since april, dozens of protesters have lost their lives and these people taking to the streets want the president gone, they say he is a criminal. what evidence and arguments if they make to say a democratically elected president should leave? it all went, the drama in the story which has been going on for a few years just started to get really cute. back in march when the government decided for whatever decision, the supreme court decided, whatever decision the national assembly was not valid. that is when the people started to demonstrate on the people started to demonstrate on the street saying this is a coup
d'etat, the government is now a dictatorship. the government called for a constitutional assembly and the elections will be injuly people say this won't be fair because all of the people are supporters of the governments that is the situation is escalating. we try to bring you the major global stories of the day, we have heard from the uk in venezuela but next syria. the un are saying at least 300 civilians have been killed in raqqa just this month. raqqa is the defector capital of the islamic state and is under severe pressure. this is from january 2016. everywhere in red is territory controlled by ias. you can see that red area has considerably. now this
is the un statement that has been put out today and in that statement it says civilians must not be sacrificed for military victories. it says it has grave concern over the fate of over 100,000 civilians who are trapped in raqqa. earlier on this week we were talking about civilians trapped. here is the situation in kinlochshiel. we were talkative —— talking about how much ceases there were a muzzle. i have been looking at the humanitarian pages and there are three concerns in syria now in raqqa, the discriminate attacks of the displaced people and this is exactly where the fear about
the lives of those 100,000 people lies. basically it is impossible to differentiate between the fighters and civilians if they are arabs or looked like arabs. so the battle of raqqa will be difficult. are any civilians managing to leave the territory? there are two ways to get that. one way is for a safe passage and the other is for humanitarian organisations to get into the city which is impossible for a moment. either taking civilians as human shields are likely disguising as civilians and running away amongst them. whatever source you turn to no one can really be sure what is
happening can they?” one can really be sure what is happening can they? i don't want to sound like i'm really shallow but there are actually millions of civilians, millions have fred sirieix and outside and raqqa is expected to be the worst battle where the elements of the so—called islamic fight because it is the last capital they have and if they go underground they wouldn't know where to go so they will have to look for more hiding or safe havens so that'll mean probably a third country apart from iraq and syria. this was the lead story last night and we will come back to it in a few minutes and stop a major global cyber attack and in the last 2a hours we'd have heard more information about the nature, who defected and who might been behind it. here in the uk the government is
seeing of a labour attempt to call an end to the limit of public sector pay increases. they sought to do that by amending the queen's speech, the government on the first vote on the government on the first vote on the new programme by threejune 20 3-3 the new programme by threejune 20 3—3 reginaian so a majority of 1a. all democratic unionist mps voted. with most of the conservative mps voting and most labour mps voting against and the opposition parties backing the amendment, theresa may's government still had the numbers to defeat that. it was a small amounts, it goes to show how small her majority is, in future vote if there was anything controversial than a few tory rebels could bring a policy down but certainly in this amendment, the labour amendment to end that cap on public spending, the 196
end that cap on public spending, the 1% cap, has been defeated tonight. iam i am ross atkins, the lead story is that six people are being charged with the hillsborough disaster, 28 yea rs with the hillsborough disaster, 28 years after it has happened, before facing charges of former policeman. let's spring is the main stories on bbc world service. first of all china has launched a new type of domestically built warship. according to state media the destroyer is equipped with a host of new weaponry and the launch comes with tensions in the south china sea is increasing. china is taking an increasingly assertive stance. the long—running dispute over cyprus is being taking place in switzerland. that distributed turkish. many
people are reading the sadness at the creator of paddington bear has died, michael bond was 91 and he published his first book called the backward paddington in 1958 and went on to write 26 more books about paddington. now as i mentioned, let's go back to the lead story, the global cyber attack which we first started hearing in ukraine but then heard from lots of different countries. users would be seeing m essa 9 es countries. users would be seeing m essa g es of countries. users would be seeing messages of this nature. their files had been encrypted and we know this has affected around 2000 users and that includes some of the world's biggest companies like the russian oilfirm ross neff, the shipping giant may ask. the systems are still down because we have to make sure that we can have the software put in place to prevent an attack occurring
again and also that we don't want to get the systems back—up to see the infection start again. what has been spoken about there is a potential vaccine. that to be the creation of a single file which would stop an attack affecting a machine, also it is worth mentioning that microsoft has put this out. a lengthy blog post on its website detailing the nature of the attack and how you might go about defending yourself in the future. a little bit earlier i spoke to rob graham from security firm based in georgia in the us. i wa nted firm based in georgia in the us. i wanted to get more details from him about how so many companies have been caught out despite the warning of the last major attack. most important weight spread was by the update for the financial software in the ukraine. that wasn't as
important as the trojan update. the ukraine. that wasn't as important as the trojan updatem terms of a companies ought to be doing, is this quite a simple fix once you decide to do it was back there is a list of things companies need to do in order to protect themselves. microsoft has a good list of things, rue figuring the network said things can't spread so far. you look at the fedex subsidiary, they are completely off—line, the whole network is down. that happens in branson were attacks when they spread like this.|j that happens in branson were attacks when they spread like this. i also wa nted when they spread like this. i also wanted to ask rob about this. a group called shadow brokers to offer
a monthly dump service. you can see on their website that they are advertising hacking tools that we know will eat that were taken from the us national security agency, the nsa was hacked and it is related to that. you can go on their website and you can pay for off—the—shelf hacking software that might allow you to do harm. i was surprised that this was being advertised in plain sight so rob has been talking to me about the legality and the practicality. it's probably not legal but of course the nsa would have to admit that they own all of that. there is zero catch in order to get money, they're not getting money through banks are anything like that at the can't stop. it's not legal, regardless of if it's legal or not they can still do it. the threat of the service like this
is that people that expertise can go and buy it off—the—shelf, software that can then cause problems? right. we don't know bert there is a good chance that something salacious will happen. something more interesting in the future that will be put into a rant somewhere —— rant somewhere that we expect yesterday. this is the second time we have spoken about biggs global security issue, i'm guessing this will become part of running major businesses wherever you are in the world? rant somewhere has been growing for the last couple of years so whilst it is news, we in the security industry have been watching this growth for a couple of years now. it is something that is going to keep happening and the more material to help companies run. going to keep happening and the more
material to help companies runm next i want to play an interviewer watched a couple of hours ago and it stopped me in my tracks. a police officer who was stabbed and he has spoken about the attack and his experiences during it. he was one of the first on the scene after the attack and has been speaking to denis dunford. it wasjust attack and has been speaking to denis dunford. it was just after turn on the 3rd ofjune when three men started their attack on london bridge. pc waymarks of the british transport police had just come on shift and walked out into a scene of chaos. i'm about to get on my radio andi chaos. i'm about to get on my radio and i hear this woman scream. sort up and i hear this woman scream. sort up behind me from the right—hand side. a young lady, she has been attacked. then he told me before he collected his thoughts he saw a man knocked to the ground, and knife
than standing behind him. this guy is on the floor pleading for his life and the first attacker without any mercy stands over him and continues attacking him. i take my batting with my right hand and i ta ke batting with my right hand and i take a deep breath and a charge at him. itry take a deep breath and a charge at him. i try to take the first one out in one go, i swing as hard as i can cover everything behind it and i'm aiming straightfor cover everything behind it and i'm aiming straight for his head. then whilst on hitting the first i get a whack to the right side of my head, it felt metal, i thought maybe it was a metal pole or a bar at first, afterwards i realised it was a knife. he was temporarily blinded in one eye, the first attacker was still on the floor but soon the
second attacker was joined by a third. i'm fighting the two of them and whilst i'm fighting my left leg sta rts and whilst i'm fighting my left leg starts wobbling, just waving and i'm thinking what the hell is wrong with my leg. and i look down and i see there is a knife in the side of my leg. he fought all three men before collapsing in being taken to hospital but he bought crucial time allowing people to escape, reducing the time the attackers had before they were shocked by armed officers. ijust they were shocked by armed officers. i just like they were shocked by armed officers. ijust like to think they were shocked by armed officers. i just like to think that i they were shocked by armed officers. ijust like to think that i did what idid to ijust like to think that i did what i did to keep the people that saw being attacked and being hurt, keep them alive. keep them out of danger as best as i could swallow tried to do. just keep them alive. get them away from danger. and you can also
see that interview the bbc news website just before we finished 2—mac finish this i want to play you a press briefing from the white house weather was an extraordinary exchange. if we make the slightest mistake, the slightest word itself, it is an absolute tie rate from a lot of people in this room. but news outlets get to go on day after day and cite unnamed sources, use stories without sources, you mentioned the story where they had to have reporters resign. this administration has done that as well, why in the name of heaven, didn't one of us, if anyone of us doesn't get it right then the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel will not read us. you
have been elected to serve for four years, there is no option other than that. we're going to ask you questions, you are here to provide answers and what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look and say once again the president is right and everybody out here is fake media and everybody in this room is only trying to do their job. in this room is only trying to do theirjob. i disagree completely, if anything has been inflamed it is the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media and i think it is outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming the story when i was simply responding to his question. make of that what you will, there area number of make of that what you will, there are a number of stories relating to president trump, we will turn to them next. good evening, if you're heading into europe over the next few days you will want to stayjune. first the
monsoon rains in india and pakistan are important to supporting agriculture and dampening down the heat. those reigns progress from the bay bangle northwards and westwards over time, they should be over india by now, the dotted lines of the usual progression, the solid line is where we are. the rains are a bit ahead of time in the west, a bit behind across some sensual northern pa rt behind across some sensual northern part including new delhi. but here and in the northern pakistan because he rains intensify. the same two for the south—east pakistan and across. one place where we need rain at the moment is the island of corsica, just off the south coast of france. in the midst of a drought here and with immediate effect, some parts of the island are facing water restrictions. scenes like this you can understand why. completely different story to other parts of europe where there has been too much rain and vicious storms in munich
and storms in romania have led to flash flooding and damage. strong gusty winds and massive hailstones. those storms have broken the heatwave that has been across central europe over the past week or so. central europe over the past week or so. whilst the storms of romania have eased, cast your down to the west. low pressure in charge here in the uk, we have seen a healthy dose and we have seen some of those across central parts with areas of low pressure don belling around themselves. with its prolonged rain, northern part of the uk and down into france but more particularly eastern germany we could see severe storms. for those heading in the mediterranean and east west splits, 39 in athens and that is pushing northwards but with it pushing storms across the especially eastern germany. cool and blustery through
fra ntz taught germany. cool and blustery through frantz taught alpine regions, especially in the northern regions where we could see more. the place to be if you want the sunshine and the heat is in around greece and the agn and turkey. if anything it gets hotter here, a big contrast to what is happening further west. the contrast continues and athens for insta nce we contrast continues and athens for instance we could see temperatures in the low 405, only in the mid—205 in spain and portugal and berlin and paris it is going to stay cloudy and call with outbreaks of rain. a5 paris it is going to stay cloudy and call with outbreaks of rain. as the weekend approaches this ridge of high pressure could be building in, find out what that means with the weather in half an hour. hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. 28 years after the hillsborough di5aster — six people are to be charged. 96 people died at the football match. among those to be charged are the policeman who was match commander on the day.
families of the victims say they feel vindicated. i'm absolutely delighted. we've got today everything we could have asked for. president trump is facing more delays in his plan to replace obamacare — and he's laying the blame with the democrats. police say they now believe at least 80 people died in the grenfell tower fire in london two weeks ago — and that some of the victims may never be identified. and in sport, michelle payne, one of horse racing's best female
