and how it has reopened the gun control debate. this attack comes five weeks after the mass shooting in las vegas which killed 58 people. turning to the financial times, which looks at some of the early fallout following the arrests of at least 11 princes and tycoons in saudi arabia as part of a crackdown on corruption. for the japan times, a heavy focus on the visit by us president donald trump and him describing japan as a treasured partner and crucial ally. his asian tour also covered in the south china morning post where the paper quotes an analyst saying, "everything is fine with trump until you tell him no. so far, abe hasn't told him no." turning to the business pages of the guardian. self—driving cars will be given the green light on uk roads in 2021 after the government says it will be

overhauling insurance laws. and, lastly, in the daily telegraph, uk farmers could make a pretty penny growing truffles. scientists say climate change has led to ideal conditions for rare meditterannean black truffles to be grown in wales. with me is nina trentmann from the wall streetjournal. let's start with dallas news online, looking at the terrible attack in a church in texas on sunday in the middle of sunday morning meetings, a young man lets rip. yes. it is a tragic incident, once again. it is raising this question in the us, will it continue as it has done? as
5:47 am
we heard before, las vegas was a couple of weeks ago, a similarly tragic incident, and there is this huge debate that we also have in europe, will this continue, and how far is regulation changing? i thought that is one of the things that dallas news talked about, which is since sandy hook, the killing and an elementary school, none of these calls for national regulation of changes have gone through, actually, the other way around, many states have passed legislation making it easierfor gun holders have passed legislation making it easier for gun holders to carry guns ina easier for gun holders to carry guns in a concealed way so that no one knows they are carrying a gun. in a concealed way so that no one knows they are carrying a gunm this case, what stopped this 20—year—old was another civilian man who, with his gun, shot the 20—year—old and prevented it from being a lot worse, some might argue. and therefore the gun lobby might
5:48 am
argue this is an example of people defending themselves, and it is the right to self—defence, the big argument in the us. which is ingrained in the constitution and has been around for a while. you can make the same argument that if there was no gun and initially then the second and counter reaction to wouldn't have been necessary. donald trump has reacted to it. it will be interesting to see how the discussion goes, one of the devices applied to the gun used in las vegas, and how it is going further, because initially mr trump and congress and the republicans supported restrictive legislation on that. it seems so far that it hasn't gone further. hopefully this will lead to further deliberations. we shall watch this space. let's look at the financial times, and it looks at the financial times, and it looks at the financial times, and it looks at the flurry of activity in saudi arabia over the weekend and last
5:49 am
week, looking at princes and tycoons arrested on corruption. this is fascinating, a new regime, led by round prints salman, concentrating power even further —— prince. round prints salman, concentrating power even further -- prince. that is one reading of this, given that in the end corruption is a very useful thing to crack down on, as we have seen in china in the last couple of years, and of course in this case it means that one major investor in twitter has been captivated, it comes at a time of huge change in saudi arabia, with the crown prince trying to transform the crown prince trying to transform the economy towards something less dependent on the income of oil, we see them preparing the ipo of saudi
5:50 am
remco, so it is interesting, and it isa sign remco, so it is interesting, and it is a sign of the intention to concentrate and stabilise power.m isa concentrate and stabilise power.m is a huge shift in saudi arabia where a very young leader is trying to bring a lot of cultural change as well as economic change, and then as some would argue, it is not necessarily all good, given the agenda revealed with this huge rounding up of individuals that took place towards end of the week. yes. there has been criticism and there have been concerns. also, any change brings change that some have benefited from, they would not be in favour of it, so it remains to be seen favour of it, so it remains to be seen what comes out of it and how this continues, and whether people who have been captivated, whether they will get a fair trial. let's talk about donald trump. the focus
5:51 am
is all on his tour in asia. we heard that he was saying on air force one, we have been talking about the saudis‘ listing in new york, and he has his eye on all sorts of things right now. the japan times' take on his arrival, a lovely picture of trump and abe with hats, they were playing golf earlier, and now today the real business gets under way, doesn't it? it is always interesting to see how far the symbolism of the trip of a leader like president donald trump is conveyed and then also when it comes to business, how the tone is changing. as you said, as mrtrump was the tone is changing. as you said, as mr trump was quoted before, he has been getting down and saying trade relations between the us and japan have been in imbalance, something he has carried through the campaign and through the first whole year of his presidency. interesting to see the japan times gives it a
5:52 am
bit more optimistic reading than the south china morning post. china is inafeud south china morning post. china is in a feud a is‘ time, when he goes to beijing, this headline, don't underestimate us, donald trump warns the region, and his reception will be different. it will, given that donald trump has put pressure on china to act differently on north korea and the question of how to deal with the north korean listing programme and this question of how to detain north korea and make it behave better in terms of the international community, and of course the chinese haven't really received it that well, that china has in the past been called a currency manipulator and these kind of things, which are things donald trump hasn't repeated recently, but has of course inserted quite a lot of tension into the debate. the guardian, self driving cars have the green light for 2021. this is an interesting story. there are so many
5:53 am
issues, including the issue of insurance laws, which will be overhauled, according to this article. yes, including when you are and are not insured, if you have your hand on the steering wheel or not, which you wouldn't necessarily do any more. it is a minefield, isn't it, basically? it is, and the industry has said, once we have insurance, which is as clearly, which you can and can't do, that would be seen as a potential boost for the industry, which i think would be an easy task for these people to come up with these regulations, given that in the end we don't really know yet what the world of self driving cars will look like, and how you craft that into legislation and it will be interesting to see. the silver lining on the dark cloud of climate change, as it were, scientists sniff out a cloud for welsh farmers, to be precise, truffles, because of the
5:54 am
warmer climate. yes, it seems it could be something for the uk agricultural industry after brexit. laughter like the uk wine industry is booming as well. yes, i was reminded of this earlier. climate change is bringing champagne and grapes to the uk and now truffle. indeed. thank you very much indeed. looking at just indeed. thank you very much indeed. looking atjust some of indeed. thank you very much indeed. looking at just some of the indeed. thank you very much indeed. looking atjust some of the stories in the papers. let's quickly show you a live shot to tokyo, where you can see the room preparing for a press briefing between president trump, of course, he is there as we have mentioned on many occasions, with the japanese leader, shinzo abe. that is the briefing. enjoy the rest of your day. we will see you very soon. rest of your day. we will see you very soon. goodbye. well, bonfire night was a cold and mainly dry one up and down the uk. overnight those temperatures continue to fall away under clear
5:55 am
skies and with light winds, leading to the coldest night of the season so far. during the early hours of monday morning, we're looking at values in towns and cities close to freezing. you can see the blue hue there on the map. and in rural places, significantly colder, down to “11, —5, maybe even —6 in one or two places along with some mist and fog. so we start monday morning off on a cold and a brighter note. some mist and fog around too, that should tend to clear away, we'll start to see a change, though, out west as a weather system slowly moves in bringing cloud, rain and strengthening winds. into the afternoon, some of that thick cloud will have arrived across the south—west of england, in towards wales. some spots of rain too. the wind strengthening up from the south, lifting temperatures gradually to 11 to 12 celsius. still, though, a cold but bright and sunny afternoon for the midlands eastwards and here it'll remain like that until the overnight period when the thickening cloud arrives. for much of northern england, for northern ireland, scotland, cloudier skies into the afternoon, strengthening winds and that rain really starting to pep up and become more persistent and heavy across the north—west corner of scotland. you can see the isobars packed
5:56 am
together, so it'll be a breezy evening across the board and that cloud continuing to push eastwards along with this rain band. by the end of the night, it'll be a cross western parts of britain. behind it, something clearer and cooler but ahead of it, mild and breezy and certainly much milder than the previous night. but the mild air, as you can see here, is only a very, very thin slice, wedged between two areas of cold air and another plunge of cold air moving in behind that rain band. so it'll be a windy, breezy day across much of england and wales on tuesday. the rain eventually reaching eastern areas, where it will be fairly heavy at times. behind it, skies brightened up nicely, one or two showers around, plenty of sunshine, but the air will be colder, back into single figures for many. double figures across the east and the south—east, but here, very wet. that weather front eventually clears away and a ridge of high pressure noses in for wednesday before the next weather system moves in during wednesday night. so a cold start again to many places on wednesday, a little bit of frost,
5:57 am
at least bright with some sunshine and turning bright eventually across the far south—east. turning wetter and windier, though, across scotland and northern ireland. that band of wet and windy weather spreads through during wednesday night to leave thursday breezy, cooler again with a little bit of sunshine and a few showers. hello, this is breakfast
