3:00 pm
this is bbc news. the headlines at 3pm: the hunt for younes abuyaaqoub — the driver of the van that killed 13 people in barcelona — has gone europe wide. police say he may have escaped to france. ten us sailors are missing, after the collision of their warship with an oil tanker, in south east asia. tweeting abuse can be as devastating as shouting it. tough new guidelines to tackle aggressors on social media. we think far too often it's an under—reported crime. people think they have to put up with low—level hate and don't realise it's a crime. also in the next hour: across south asia, this season's monsoon rains have devastated huge areas. around eight hundred have died and more than a million others have had to leave their homes. how dash cams are helping make our roads safer, forcing people to be better drivers. and millions of americans rush to get a ringside seat to a once—in—a—century event as a coast—to—coast solar eclipse begins in oregon. i love it, i think it's cool, it's
3:01 pm
bringing out the best in everybody and everybody‘s together. good afternoon and welcome to bbc news. spanish police have confirmed the identity of the driver, suspected of killing 13 people, in last week's terror attack in barcelona. they say younes abu—yaaqoub, is the only suspect still on the run, and he may have evaded capture by killing a man and stealing his car. the manhunt now extends across europe. new cctv footage from the day of the attack appears to show him fleeing the scene on foot. three images in the el pais newspaper allegedly show him walking through la boqueria market, wearing sunglasses, as he passes
3:02 pm
other people heading away from las ramblas. our correspondent gavin lee, has sent us this report from barcelona. this is younes abouyaaqoub, the suspect who drove into the crowd on las ramblas. he's still on the run and he's likely to be armed. abouyaaqoub appears to have been picked up on cctv, wearing sunglasses as he walked through the nearby boqueria market, past others fleeing the scene. in a press conference this morning, police gave more details of the suspect. translation: we have identified the perpetrator of the incident at las ramblas. the investigation carried out by catalan police and various lines of inquiry can confirm the perpetrator of the attack is younes abouyaaqoub, who is 22 years old. the rest of the terror cell is said to be dead or under arrest. eight of the 12 attackers came from the pyrenees village of ripoll. police believe this man, abdelbaki es satty, the local imam, recruited and organised the group. the day before the attack
3:03 pm
he is thought to have accidentally killed himself preparing home—made bombs. it led to an explosion at this hideout in the remote coastal town of alcanar. the death toll now stands at 15 after police confirmed that there are questions here as to whether the police could bear to have protected the citizens of las ramblas. plans for barriers are being rejected, claiming that you cannot fully protect the city. the death toll now stands at 15 after police confirmed that abouyaaqoub stabbed and killed a spanish driver, pau perez, on the outskirts of the city, using his car to escape. there is now a europe—wide manhunt for his arrest. four days on, there's still no sign of where he's hiding out. earlier gavin explained a little more about the stabbing and car theft — carried out by younes abouyaaqoub — which led to the death of a 15th victim. what the interior minister has
3:04 pm
said is that this man, about an hour and a half from here, if you look behind me, 500 metres down this road is the journey the car took. it was on this corner where the car first mounted the pavement. 500 metres, then stopped. quite an iconic market here, that's where it stopped. the suspect abu yacoub, he got out just a few blocks down here, it is picked up on cctv, three different pictures of him. he walks for an hour and a half, walking up the rope. the spanish national was parking his car and stabbed then killed, the suspect carried on. he has not been seen since. what we know is there is a europe—wide search for him. french police have been informed. there is an increased patrol and checks on the french
3:05 pm
border now with spain. but also here, around these two particular areas, key to the investigation you have alcanar where the explosion happened with the imam who they believe did die in that explosion after the preparation for the bomb attack failed. and this other one, at ripoll. where eight of the ten attackers were from. that is still a big police presence. frankly they have very little idea of where he could be. they are putting this warning out to say to the public here, look how crowded it is, he is armed. he is dangerous. and it has been four days since he has been on the run. rescue teams from malaysia, singapore and america, are searching for ten missing us sailors, after their warship collided with an oil tanker. the ussjohn s mccain, and a liberian—flagged vessel, hit each other near the straits of malacca. richard lister reports. the collision happened before dawn.
3:06 pm
guided missile destroyer uss john s mccain was holed at the water line as it steamed towards singapore for a routine visit. the us 7th fleet said several compartments were flooded including berths for crew members. ten sailors are missing, five were injured. a search and rescue operation is now under way involving ships from singapore and malaysia with air support from the us navy. four of the injured were airlifted to hospital in singapore, though their conditions are not said to be life—threatening. in a tweet, president trump offered thoughts and prayers, as the rescue efforts continued. the other ship involved the liberian flagged tanker is bigger and heavier than the mccain, it continued to singapore with its cargo of fuel oil intact. such vessels cannot move quickly, raising questions as to who was to blame. it indicates the destroyer could have turned across the front of the tanker which is an inadvisable thing to do in accordance with the rule of the road. it's not good seamanship.
3:07 pm
the collision happened in territory claimed by both singapore and malaysia and one of the busiest stretches of ocean in the world. the singapore strait carries around a third of all global shipping trade with ships arriving and leaving port in singapore every 2—3 minutes. the malaysian authorities say the crash happened just outside a safety zone where shipping is separated into fixed lanes. we know the location of the incident. it is more or less at the entrance to the traffic separation, it is an area where no less than 80,000 vessels travel to the area per year. injune the mccain's sister ship uss fitzgerald was involved in a remarkably similar incident, colliding with a container vessel off the coast of japan. seven american sailors died
3:08 pm
and the vessel almost sank, the 7th fleet blamed poor seamanship and removed the fitzgerald's commanding officer. the mccain limped into a singapore naval base, but these warships are designed to respond to threats around them at all times and the us navy will be looking urgently at why two have now been involved in collisions injust two months. richard lister, bbc news. we can now speak to david larter — naval warfare reporter for the online publication, defence news. he joins us from washington. i will come to the wider issues in a moment, but if ten sailors are still missing is there any chance they could be found alive? there is a lwa ys could be found alive? there is always a chance. there are two search is going on now, one would be in the waters around where the collision happened, at the entrance of the traffic separation scheme, going into the singapore strait. the
3:09 pm
other will be inside the skin of the ship. in the case of the fitzgerald, they sent divers into the flooded berthing areas. it's my understanding that the crew sleeps there, kicked their gear there. hangs out, those are the space is affected by the flooding. that's what going on right now. so we keep oui’ what going on right now. so we keep our fingers crossed on that. on the issue of how this happened, you have an oil tanker which anybody knows is difficult to turn in any space, limited like how we are talking where this happened. is the warship, the person steering it to keep out the person steering it to keep out the way? —— is the onus on the warship? i was taught that the law of gross tide replies. that is, if it's a bigger, less manoeuvrable ship, the ohus bigger, less manoeuvrable ship, the onusis bigger, less manoeuvrable ship, the onus is on the smaller, more agile warship to get out the way. that
3:10 pm
said, we do not know what's going on 01’ said, we do not know what's going on or what string of events led to this. we do not know of thejohn isner came as in some way disabled, if they had a steering casualties they could not recover from. we do not know, all this is under investigation. —— the john not know, all this is under investigation. —— thejohn s mccain. events like this tend to be rare, that's why it's so shocking that have been to this summer. the number of things i had to go wrong in any given incident, it tends to be a long string of events. it's hard to puzzle out. that's why the navy does thorough investigations, so they can learn the lesson. you will be able to say these things much longer, because what is going on? it's a good question. frankly, that's a question that if you are the navy ‘s top officer, the chief of naval operations or you are the us seventh fleet commander, a three star role, you have to be asking yourself that question. if you are not, that's my practice. this is an unbelievable
3:11 pm
string of events. the fourth incident involving navigational safety just this year. there incident involving navigational safetyjust this year. there has been another collision, a smaller one with a korean fishing boat in the sea of japan. one with a korean fishing boat in the sea ofjapan. the one with a korean fishing boat in the sea of japan. the cruiser anted was grounded in tokyo bay, all this year. you are absolutely right. we may not be able to say it is rare because it is happening with an alarming frequency. you mention a korean fishing boat. with all this going on, military exercises, kim jong—un looking on would see an incident like and may wonderjust how strong the american military really is? certainly that is a concern. i will say that there are a lot of assets that the us has in the pacific. but it is a blow, to have two ballistic missile defence capable ships sidelined by accidents in one year. there are a handful of other ships that are ballistic
3:12 pm
missile defence capable injapan, and there are some on pearl harbor, but there is no mistaking, this is a disaster. there is no dressing this up disaster. there is no dressing this up putting lipstick on it. this is a disaster upon a disaster. the navy will have to figure out what, in a broader context, is going on and how to fix it. what is the worst part of, you call it a disaster, is it the embarrassment factor? clearly the embarrassment factor? clearly the disaster factor is the loss of life that we saw in the fitzgerald. seven sailors, ten missing now. that is absolutely a disaster. these are highly trained, capable people. they all have families. that is the primary concern. the other concern is clearly the ship. these are expensive ships. congress puts out a lot of money to maintain them, to build them, to equip them. it's not a cce pta ble build them, to equip them. it's not acceptable to have these things happen in accidents. we are supposed to be professional mariners in the
3:13 pm
us navy. on that basis, where does the buck stop? is it every time with the buck stop? is it every time with the commander of the vessel at the time? often, when you go through these investigations, that is who these investigations, that is who the buck. with. but i have to tell you, what we saw in the incident with far the island a few months ago, when several sailors were taken captive by ron. we saw a much broader swathe of officers being punished. —— taken captive by iran. i would not want to speculate where things are going, but i have two imagine they are taking it as seriously. that was an unacceptable situation, and for accidents in one year, in one region, the us seventh fleet based injapan, i have to believe they are looking at some larger context it. thank you so much for your time. hate crimes committed online, are to be prosecuted as seriously as offences carried out face to face. new guidelines for england and wales mean the crown prosecution service will seek tougher penalties
3:14 pm
for abuse on social media, claiming the impact of tweeting abuse, can be just as devastating as shouting it. here's our home affairs correspondent dominic casciani. rhodri colwyn philipps, the fourth viscount st davids, jailed last month for racially aggravated threats on facebook against gina miller, the businesswoman behind the brexit legal challenge. she said she felt violated by his shocking comments, just one of many online attacks she suffered. now, the crown prosecution service says these kinds of crimes must be dealt with as robustly as offences on the street. it's promising a tougher response, to build public confidence. there were more than 15,000 hate crime prosecutions in 2015—2016, the highest number ever, and a third of those convicted saw their sentence increased. but the number of cases referred by police to prosecutors fell by almost 10%, a drop the cps says it is investigating. i hope that the difference that the guidance and the public
3:15 pm
statements will make is that people will feel more confident to report hate crime, that they will understand they don't have to put up with the abuse that they might feel that they just have to because they're disabled, because of their religion, because of their sexuality, and that they will feel confident to come forward, knowing that we can support them, and that we will prosecute these crimes where we have sufficient evidence. 0nline hate comes in many forms, as kaye medcalf knows. kaye is among transgender people who don't define themselves as either men or women, and it makes them more of a target for online abuse. people were messaging me into my inbox. people were saying horrible things about me, saying that i wanted a tranny loo, that i was an "it", using dehumanising language, calling me a lesbian, purposely misgendering me, saying that i was mentally unwell... i think it has affected my self confidence, and it has made me find
3:16 pm
it difficult to trust other people. i get very nervous about what i put out online, and i get nervous when meeting people, in case something awful is going to happen, and that, i think, overall isolates you. from now on, prosecutors must give more consideration to complex cases like kaye's. some critics say police and prosecutors still move too slowly on hate crime, but the cps says it is determined to create the best possible chance of achieving justice for all victims. dominic casciani, bbc news. let's speak to yahir cohen — a founding partner of the social media and internet law firm cohen davis — who was the first lawyer in the uk to successfully serve a harassment injunction on an anonymous online abuser. hejoins me on webcam from the greek island of kos. you are having a good time, you must be cheered by this news. lots of
3:17 pm
people saying this is taken an awful long time to get to the stage. yes, we have seen a shift in attitude by the crown prosecution service. the previous guidance clearly stated that online abuse was not it as serious or should not be investigated as thoroughly as off—line abuse. we are thrilled that there is a change in approach here. however, we used to talk about victimless crime. now we probably talk about suspect less crime. the problem of course is not with how many people are recording his crimes, which are clearly on the increase, but what do we do to make it much easierfor increase, but what do we do to make it much easier for victims and for the police to identify those responsible for the abuse? because they hide behind the anonymity, the very anonymity that gives them the courage for these cowards to do what they do? indeed. it is very difficult for most victims of online abuse to take steps to identify
3:18 pm
their abusers. what we say is let's go one step further, and make it easierfor go one step further, and make it easier for victims go one step further, and make it easierfor victims of go one step further, and make it easier for victims of online abuse andindeed easier for victims of online abuse and indeed for the police to obtain evidence relating to the identities of the abusers. let's create some sort of system where victims of online abuse can fairly easily fill out a form, have the form seen by a committee of magistrates, members of the public and so on, and make it easierfor the public and so on, and make it easier for them. the public and so on, and make it easierfor them. they the public and so on, and make it easier for them. they make an application to have identity disclosed by google, that application could be approved, fairly easily, and off you go. you mention one internet provider there. is this a much wider issue? we are focusing on what the police can do,
3:19 pm
but what about internet providers themselves? internet providers themselves? internet providers themselves are, to be fed to them, and i'm not singling out any particular one, they... we are not sure whether they are hiding behind data protection laws or whether this isa data protection laws or whether this is a genuine concern and whether they are hiding behind freedom of speech concerns. we do not think that freedom of speech and anonymity of the same thing. we believe these are completely different issues. there are other matters concerning data protection, so internet service providers say look, we cannot give you that information unless we have a court order. the same applies to the police. ironically, we are able to obtain disclosure orders within days. the police could take many months. to go to their own process. what we are saying is let's make this process easier, let's make provisions perhaps under protection law that allow internet service providers to release data, relating
3:20 pm
to suspects of online crime and online abuse, to the victims and to the police. we are calling these hate crimes. 0bviously people are very distressed by them. is this the sort of thing that police and other agencies should be looking into? should be spending resources on? when a lot of people are concerned that the internet is what it is, and the argument as i'm sure you here as well, if someone is abusing you, stop reading them, stop them following you? real problems will following you? real problems will follow you wherever you go. they will be on your facebook page, instagram account, so on. we want to bring some sort of solution to this problem. what we are seeing, it is on the increase, there are more and more victims of that sort of abuse. all we are saying is look, freedom
3:21 pm
of speech is great, data protection is great. but let's just make it a little bit easier and cheaperfor victims of online abuse and hate crime to obtain details of their abusers. that by itself, i'm pretty sure we'll bring a sharp decline in the amount of abuse and the number of people who are daring to say things they would never dare saying off—line. things they would never dare saying off-line. we have made it a working holiday for you. thank you very much! the headlines on bbc news: the hunt for younes abu—yaaqoub — the driver of the van that killed 13 people in barcelona — has gone europe wide. police say he may have escaped to france. ten us sailors are missing, after the collision of their warship with an oil tanker, in south east asia. tweeting abuse can be as devastating as shouting it. tough new guidelines to tackle aggressors on social media. and in sport... it's been claimed female football
3:22 pm
fa ns it's been claimed female football fans will make to show their bras at a steve na g e fans will make to show their bras at a stevenage match on saturday. the english football league is investigating. neymar was showing off his £200 million price tag. the brazilian scored two and set up two goals for paris st germain, including winning a penalty, thrashing toulose 6—2. and mo farah's glittering track career will come to an end over 5000 metres at the diamond league final in zurich on thursday. the prime minister is said to be confident that the uk will make enough progress in brexit talks by 0ctober enough progress in brexit talks by october to move onto the next phase. the government has released position papers. later this week, the government has released position papers. laterthis week, one
3:23 pm
the government has released position papers. later this week, one is expected onjudicial papers. later this week, one is expected on judicial cooperation papers. later this week, one is expected onjudicial cooperation may continue the controversy over the role of the european court of justice. adam fleming in brussels explained the detail of this paper. this is what i have been using, my new brexit binder. this is all the official documents relating to the brexit negotiations. starting with the instructions given to michel barnier by the european council, then moving onto the nine position papers that were published by the european commission on a whole range of legal issues to do with the brexit process. the second half of this massive folder is all the position papers that the uk has been publishing in the last couple of weeks. position papers are official documents, quite legalistic, quite detailed, which are actually on the table, in the negotiations metaphorically. in that michel barnier and his officials from the eu side and david davis and his officials from the uk side go through the documents, and they are the basis for the negotiations. they are looking for points of agreement and disagreement, and point of clarification. the two newest documents at the end of here are the ones published by the uk today.
3:24 pm
one very technical one which is about confidentiality of eu and uk documents during and after this process. the most significant one is, to give it its technical name, goods on the market. that is what happens to products that are on sale in the eu and the uk, in the days and the run—up to brexit, to make sure they can continue to be on sale after brexit after brexit in the days, weeks and months after brexit. while it all sounds very technical and legalistic, the uk is trying to make quite a big political point with their document. they are trying to widen the scope of what is considered a "good" on the market, the commission wanted to be products that are for sale at that point. the uk wants to make it a much more generous interpretation, to include things that have been manufactured. they are trying to get a little political point in by trying to talk about the future trade deal between the eu and the uk. the eu is not quite ready to talk about that yet. across south asia, this season's monsoon rains have
3:25 pm
devastated huge areas, killing around eight hundred people. more than a million others have had to leave their homes, with food shortages and the threat disease ever present. parts of nepal and india have been badly affected, and in bangladesh, the flooding is thought to be the worst for 30 years. sanjoy majumder has sent this report from northern bangladesh. the only way around northern bangladesh is by boat. all the roads have been washed away. with little sign of the water receding, people are settled on any patch of dry land they can find. a partially submerged bridge is now home to this family. they have been here for over a week. they have brought with them whatever possessions they could carry, and also their cattle. the flood just washed away our home. we were able to quickly grab some things and our animals. many of bangladesh's major rivers flow through here, which is why it is the worst affected part of the country. this is the brahmaputra river, one of the world's largest.
3:26 pm
it flows into bangladesh from india. what's happened is because of heavy monsoon rain, it's breached its banks and the entire area around it is flooded. these people here have taken up the only sliver of land that's been left untouched. aid workers are trying their best to get relief to flood victims but there's a massive scramble, such as the need for something as basic as drinking water. and inevitably many are left out. the number of people affected is simply too high. it's now a race against time, to get to those affected before it's too late. for the first time in nearly a hundred years, a total eclipse of the sun, will cross coast to coast, across america. it will travel nearly two—and—a—half—thousand miles over ten states, from oregon in the west, through kansas, to south carolina in the east. millions of people have
3:27 pm
travelled to the us to see the eclipse for themselves, and one of the towns hosting a fresh influx of visitors is hopkinsville in kentucky, from where our correspondent nada tawfik has sent us this report. eclipse mania has arrived. in the small town of hopkinsville, kentucky, this is the largest party they've ever thrown. officially eclipseville for the big day, here is where the best, and one of the longest, views of the spectacular moment of darkness will be. the locals are over the moon. people used to say, "where is hopkinsville? " now, no one will ever have to ask again. i love it. i think it's cool. it's bringing out the best in everybody and everybody is together. i love it. to deal with the overwhelming preparations, this quiet community of 30,000 appointed a special solar eclipse coordinator. mayor carter hendricks says this has been years in the making.
3:28 pm
about ten years ago we received a phone call from a scientist asking about the eclipse and if they could book hotel rooms. that was the first time we'd heard about it. at the downtown festival, there are dozens of vendors, selling everything from eclipse t—shirts to eclipse artwork and glasses. officials are hoping this will give the local economy a needed boost. but the demand is stretching some businesses to their limit. at this local hamburger place, they have been struggling to serve up food fast enough. wall to wall. people have been in here nonstop today. and it's been nonstop for campsites, welcoming out of towners. what also makes hopkinsville such an ideal location to view the eclipse is the expansive farmland. it's the perfect location to host the masses of spectators that have descended on the small town, from all around the country and the world. in this campsite, there are people who have travelled as far as canada, uk, and even australia. karl bartelt is from melbourne.
3:29 pm
he has made a vow to see as many total solar eclipses as possible in his lifetime. seeing a partial eclipse is like going to church but seeing a total eclipse, a total solar eclipse is like meeting god, or seeing god. the moment of totality will last two minutes and a0 seconds here, but the memory will leave a permanent mark on this rural community. shejoins us live she joins us live now from kentucky. how much longer have forgotten how excited you will get in? just a few short hours now. you can really feel the anticipation and excitement. everyone here is in such a great mood. the weather is cooperating, the sun is out and shining, bright blue skies. only a few clouds. that's one thing the city could not prepare for, so they are very happy
3:30 pm
its core operating. on the small farm near expecting hundreds of people already campsites are set up. asi people already campsites are set up. as i said earlier, people are here from all over the world. with me now is george breslow and from devon in england. george, this is for you was really a trip six years in the making. around six years ago i was in my first ever stromberg class. we looked at a map of all the total solar eclipses for the couple of decades. —— first—ever astronomy class. i noticed the next one would be north america. i asked class. i noticed the next one would be north america. iasked my class. i noticed the next one would be north america. i asked my mum class. i noticed the next one would be north america. iasked my mum if we odour —— if we could head over in the next two years and she said yes. so over the last six years mum has been looking into all the details and planning this trip. now we are here, cannot wait to get going. originally you thought you would be doing this from nashville, tennessee but now you are hearing hopkins bill? originally we would be staying with friends in nashville. a few
3:31 pm
weeks ago i found out we had booked a place on the farm here, so we camped overnight. now we're here see it in the point of totality. it will be fantastic. is this the first total solar eclipse you will see? hopefully the first i will remember. i saw one when i was four years old, my memory is not so good from them, so my memory is not so good from them, so hopefully i will actually remember this one. what are you expecting? how exciting is that given how far you've travelled on your expectations? i can't wait. it's going to be amazing. being a physicist, people always talk about the sort of event you never really get to see them, stuck in a lab. actually getting to see some thing like this will be amazing. i'm asking everyone this question, will you be taking photos orjust sitting back and watching?” you be taking photos orjust sitting back and watching? i will do both. i had my camera setup but i will not be looking for it. i will have it there, remote shutter going, otherwise i will be looking at. you've come here with your entire family and friends. what have you quys family and friends. what have you guys been doing in the run—up? exploring nashville a bit. we only
3:32 pm
met, i've been in the states a while for this holiday, met up with them a couple of days ago. since then doing the tourist things in nashville. lots of walking and enjoying the life around here. that is george breslow and who travelled all the way from devon england just to be here for one of nature ‘s most awe—inspiring moments. here for one of nature ‘s most awe-inspiring moments. we got his whole itinerary there as well! thank you for that update. talk to you later on. no chance of seeing this on here i suspect. but you can watch live coverage of the solar eclipse at 6'clock tonight, on the bbc news channel. here is darren bett. there is some sunshine around, simon and it's actually really warm across the south—west of the uk. there isn't much sunshine to be had, to be fairand isn't much sunshine to be had, to be fair and honest, but we have some warmer humid tropical air coming up from the south—west and it's here that we'll see the highest
3:33 pm
temperatures where the clouds broken. the thicker, lower cloud is still producing rain and drizzle and it's working its way northwards so pegging back the temperatures. we could get 23 or 2a in the south—west in some sunshine. this rain is pushing its way into northern england, that will be around for this evening for a while. any breaks in the cloud further southin any breaks in the cloud further south in england and wales will fill in with mistiness and it will be pretty cloudy out there with a lot of low cloud, mist and murk over the hills in particular. a really warm night. grey, misty murky start. that rain gets stuck across northern, mainland scotland. in england and wales, it will brighten up a little more widely. some sunshine could trigger one or two showers. wet weather developing in northern ireland and later in the south—west of scotland. where we get some sunshine, we may find temperatures as high as 26 or 27. hello, this is bbc news

the mariners trust made the allegation in a letter to stevenage fc after the two sides met. it said some fans wearing underwired bras were also asked by stewards if they could feel them. both stevenage fc and the english football league are investigating. manchester city and everton are going head to head in tonight's premier league action. the merseysiders could give sigurdsson his debut, having signed for a club—record fee thought to be £16 million. the last time the two clubs played each other, everton won 4—0. they score four goals last time. they score four goals last time. they were solid in terms of defensiveness. it's in the past so i hope of course we can learn from that and we can win. six days we have played three difficult away games. it starts from monday. city, 0k, games. it starts from monday. city, ok, but it's a nice challenge and then they are strong and we like to be strong. 0k, we are fully

confident. we do the maximum to get a good result. antonio conte has issued a warning to tottenham saying other clubs will relish the atmosphere at wembley. marcos alonso scored twice as they beat spurs 2—1 in their first league game at the national stadium. conte says the atmosphere is great but the tottenham manager insists his players can cope. it doesn't affect me. but i understand that we need to talk. we need to talk. but today it's the wembley ethic. it's not the reason we lose the game. the team play really well. it's not fair to blame wembley because wembley is, for me, one of the best places in the world, if not the best place in the world to play football.

could do that! thank you. america and south korea, have begun annualjoint military exercises, given added significance this year, following developments in north korea's ballistic and nuclear weapons programmes. recent highly charged rhetoric between pyongyang and washington, has raised the threat of conflict on the korean peninsula, to levels not seen since the cold war. the exercises infuriate the north, and it's a group of european personnel, tasked with overseeing them, as yogita limaye reports. it's a little bit like being in the eye of the hurricane. so everything is very tense around, but here it's calm and nice and peaceful. it's a little bit strange, the situation, sometimes. between the border in north and south korea, these are the men
3:40 pm
guarding the ceasefire between the two countries. the korean war which started in june 1950 and two countries. the korean war which started injune1950 and 27thjuly 1953 ended with an armistice agreement. that is the same armistice agreement that is valid here today. there is no peace between the country. they're technically at war. south korea chose sweden and switzerland while the north chose poland and czechoslovakia and neutral nations to monitor the armistice. in the 19905, to monitor the armistice. in the 1990s, pyongyang expelled the commission from each side. so now, only swedish and swiss officers remain in south korea. even though north and south korean soldiers stand face—to—face at the border, there is no communication between there is no communication between the two sides. in recent days, harsh threats have been coming from pyongyang. but these have come to be expected. what is new now is that there are talks from north korea,
3:41 pm
they've met rhetoric from an american leader which is a bit different then of course it goes a little higher. i wouldn't say they are more scared than normal, but you never know. this contingent also monitors the military drills conducted every year by the us and south korean forces to ensure they don't violate the ceasefire. what was meant to be a temporary camp until a peace agreement was signed has now been here for 64 years. of course we all hoped that we could close down here and go home because there is a peace treaty. but as long as north korea presses on with its nuclear programme, there can be no peace agreement here. we are getting reports from various newspaper websites suggesting the hunt for the drive suspected of killing 13 people in last week's attacks in barcelona may be coming
3:42 pm
to something of an end. spanish newspapers reporting that he has been arrested and that is coming at the same time that it's been reported on reuters. reuters also reporting that a man wearing an explosive belt was shot down in a town west of barcelona. now, that is according to a local radio station in barcelona and we are hearing from catalonia police who say that an incident is under way in an area west of barcelona. that is all they are saying on it, so it's a conflicting, confusing picture at the moment but clearly something is going on in that hunt for the man suspected of killing 13 people in last week's attack in barcelona. he is thought to have then gone on to kill two others, including someone who was stabbed then a car stolen, which culminated in the search being extended to europe. according to
3:43 pm
these reports at least, it would appear that he has not gone far, in fa ct appear that he has not gone far, in fact from where the offence took place. that is a still there of the main suspect in that incident from last week in barcelona. so it is a conflicting report. we'll keep you up—to—date on any developments on that. that is going on at the moment. we'll bring you more on that shortly i'm sure. could dash cams mounted as standard in most cars, help curb dangerous driving? well insurers say they can be crucial, in helping apportion blame in accident cases, and a pilot scheme in wales, where drivers were encouraged to pass footage to the police, has been so successful, it's being extended. in other parts of the uk, dash cams are also being looked at as a possible way to maintain road safety, as lorna gordon explains. an evening drive in fife earlier this year. violet connor was driving a short distance in her car on a road she knows well,
3:44 pm
when this happened. the driver of the other car blamed her for the crash, but violet used the footage recorded by her dashcam to show she'd done nothing wrong. violet's car was written off, but the dashcam that proved her innocence followed her to her new one. yeah, ijust sat in the car for a few minutes. i was quite shaky, so, obviously, with having the dashcam, i believe that helped me. that helped, cos they were disputing, the other party was disputing, so the dashcam definitely helped me. dashcams record what the driver of a car sees on the road ahead. when there's an accident, the footage the dashcam records can prove whether the driver is in the clear or, indeed, whether they were at fault. some footage has ended up showing questionable behaviour out on our roads which could have put others at risk. in north wales, police investigate
3:45 pm
footage sent in by motorists. it's resulted in action against some drivers and has been so successful the scheme is about to be expanded. the footage is varied that we get, some of which has been horrendously shocking, and it's only right that, as an organisation, we take it forward and prosecute that person. we cannot be everywhere for everyone, and it gives us an extra set of eyes on the road 24/7 recording what is footage that can be used in court. insurers say dashcam footage can provide valuable evidence in the event of a crash. some companies lower their premiums for drivers who have the technology in their cars. campaign group big brother watch argues dashcams are a breach of privacy. you could look at this as though the police are effectively asking society to snoop on one another. film everything you see whilst you are driving along in your car, and if there is something that
3:46 pm
you think is a bit dangerous or you don't like it, send it to us and we'll make a decision about it. that's quite different from, everybody gets along fine, but if you're involved in an accident it's very helpful for us to have the evidence so we can determine who's guilty and who's not. violet connor says she would never drive without her dashcam now, and believes our roads would be safer if we all had them in our cars. lorna gordon, bbc news. the headlines: local media in spain is reporting that the person accused of carrying out the latest terrorist attack in barcelona is being captured. ten us navy sailors are missing and five have been injured after a us destroyer and an oil tanker collided near singapore. online hate crimes should be treated as seriously as abuse committed face—to—face according to the crown prosecution service.

for the first time its guidelines for prosecutors in england and wales includes offences against bisexual people. in the business news. the chinese car company "great wall motor " says it's interested in buying some or all of american carmaker fiat chrysler. the two sides have already reportedly held talks about chrysler's jeep brand.. now great wall wants to hold more talks. more than 100 technology leaders are calling on the un to prevent the development of so—called "killer robots". leading names in artificial intelligence, like elon musk, have warned of "a third revolution in warfare". we've been spending a lot more on our credit and debit cards this year — transactions are up by 12 per cent on last year. but now lenders are facing tough new rules to make sure they are lending responsibly. let's get more on that story about killer robots. some of the world's leading robotics and artificial intelligence pioneers are calling on the united nations to ban the development and use of autonomous weapons.
3:48 pm
they say it could be the next revolution in warfare — after gunpowder and nuclear arms. noel sharkey is a robotics expert at the university of sheffield — he's also one of the judges on bbc 2's robot wars in other business news... what are the weapons? they can work without human supervision. they are not fantastic robots like a terminator, they're normal like ta nks terminator, they're normal like tanks and jet, ships and submarines. these are weapons then that are making decisions for themselves? yes, they're programmed decisions, so the decision to kill has been delegated to them. they have to determine what the legitimacy of the target is, which is pretty impossible i think. so are you saying that we are some way away from the weapons, is that right?|j don't think we are some way away.
3:49 pm
the developments are being pushed hard. i could have a killer robot made tomorrow but the point is how robust is it, can it discriminate and comply. we are at the un campaigning for the last four years about this and trying to get a prohibition on the developments before they're already out there. surely the point with these weapons though, as you alluded to, is that at the heart of it, there is a human being who is writing the code, formatting the weapon. smurfly these weapons will carry our values and moral guidelines somewhere in them? we don't add values and moral guidelines, they'll go out, find a target and kill it so you are relying on that make the decision about the legitimacy of the target and that is a real problem i think. it's not just and that is a real problem i think. it's notjust that and that is a real problem i think. it's not just that though, and that is a real problem i think. it's notjust that though, because the people who've been developing them believe that they're the only ones developing them and that will give them the military edge. there is an arms race going on at the moment between china, russia and
3:50 pm
israel and the united states. britain are in there a little bit but not nearly as much. what happens when everybody has them, then it's no saving at all because it will be robot against robot to a certain extent. they‘ re robot against robot to a certain extent. they're talking about using swarms of them as false multipliers. who happens when one meets another? i don't know, neither does anyone else because there are hidden combat algorithms, so this is a problem for security, national security. what about robots on the battlefield fighting each other?” about robots on the battlefield fighting each other? i don't think thatis fighting each other? i don't think that is going to happen. even if they did, no—one would surrender. if they did, no—one would surrender. if the irish robots beat the english, the irish robots beat the english, the english wouldn't say, you have won, it would lead to more warfare. look what happened in baghdad, we bombed the life out of it and still ten yea rs bombed the life out of it and still ten years later, we leave with our tail between our legs, warfare doesn't work in that nice clean way. it won't just be doesn't work in that nice clean way. it won'tjust be robot on robot. it's likely to be low—tech countries

that continue to be attacked. we have seen human rights violations in the likes of somalia, pakistan and the likes of somalia, pakistan and the yemen and we are going to see that worse with this kind of weapon. thanks forjoining us. the man in charge of negotiating the uk's trade deals once we leave the eu, starts his job this week. he's crawford falconer — and has more than 25 years trade experience. the uk needs to strike hundreds of new trade deals, once we leave the european union. spare a thought for the boss of the average ftse100 company. his or her pay has fallen by around a fifth over the last year — to around four—and—a—half—million dollars. that's according to the accountancy group deloitte. the company says it looks as if policies aimed at capping bosses pay, are working. you could be in for a nasty surprise if you charge your electric car at home — at the same time as using other appliances like a kettle. the national grid says using a powerful car charger could trip a mains fuse — if it's used at the same time as high—demand items
