not even for tutankhamun‘s golden death mask, damaged by maintenance staff at the museum in tahrir square. after knocking off the beard, they glued it back on crudely. it took german experts two months to repair it. but so far the transfers to the new museum have gone smoothly. ancient masterpieces unveiled on camera just to prove it. egyptian officials say it's as if their ancestors are helping out, and beckoning the tourists. 0rla guerin, bbc news, cairo. newsnight is coming up on bbc two. here is mle. tonight, the biggest war trial since nuremberg coming to a close. mark bergin has been back to bosnia to talk to those whose lives there were altered for ever.

with the ashes now just seven days away, australia have sprung a surprise by naming their squad earlier than the first two tests. tim kaine returns as wicketkeeper, matt renshaw is dropped and an uncapped player, cameron bancroft, opens the batting. as for england number of batsmen have today been making claims for places in the starting team after a display against a cricket australia 11. andy swiss reports from townsville, where mark stoneman has staked his claim for an opening spot. with the ashes just a week away, i’u ns we re with the ashes just a week away, runs were what england wanted, and by and large they got them, especially the man proving the form single—mac of this tour. after 350s in his previous three innings mark stoneman simply picked up where he left off —— the man proving to be the former batsman. together they
put on 172 for the opening wicket before cook was cot behind for 70. notching up his first hundred in an england shot, and his tim bosma first up is the. james vince made a fluid 26 before being caught —— first 100 in an england shirt. for almost all the batsmen, especially their century on, it was a satisfying day. a decent touch. -- especially their centurion. i am fairly happy, everything has gone well. in practice. it feels like my game is in good order. it will be tested at hell of a lot more to come next week for sure, no doubts about that and everyone is aware of it. but as far as things go i am happy.
some useful runs then for england, especially with the openers. they know next week will be an entirely different challenge, but this can only help their confidence. andy swiss, bbc news. meanwhile england's women start the first of three vital twenty20 matches against australia in the morning. they need to win all three t20 matches, or win two and tie the other, if they are to regain the ashes, mark robinson's side trailing the multi—format series. were aware of the risks last night and again we arejust taking it were aware of the risks last night and again we are just taking it day by day, so with more around we will probably know a bit more tonight. he is such a big player for us so if you can get him fit and out there we will but equally we know it will be a long—term fitness issue and there are two more games to follow. don't forget you can follow the game on bbc radio 5 live sports extra and the bbc sport website from 8 o'clock tomorrow morning.
in londonjack sock has clinched a place in the semifinals of the world tour finals this evening. he beat alexander zverev at the 02 tour finals this evening. he beat alexander zverev at the o2 arena, but it was not straightforward. after a round two hours on court and that one set all sock broke the german's serve to take the deciding set. that is how he did it, and he a lwa ys set. that is how he did it, and he always looks surprised, doesn't he! roger federer was already into the last four, but made it three wins out of three by beating marin chilich. it was a repeat of the wimbledon final, which federer also won. the swiss came from a set down, to win comfortably again. i tell myself, try to relax a little bit. we have a lot of pressure every match we play during the season because if you lose you go home, so
this one was not the case and in a way it is nice to play tennis this way, where perhaps you can play a bit more freely, and i think i was able to do that midway through the second set, and remind myself i am through regardless, but of course i wa nt to through regardless, but of course i want to do well, try to keep the momentum going, play the right way, and for that win is always very helpful looking forward. justin rose has put himself into a great position going into day two of the world tour championships in dubai. the englishman is one off the lead after the first round. this eagle from the bunker, helping him to six under par. patrick reed of the usa leads. it was not silly on my radar a month ago, so that is the perspective i have to keep, it is an opportunity for me. certainly it is easy to think about it being in my hands, but it is still a bonus, so that is it at this point. onto the football, and a bit of an upset in the fa cup. leatherhead were struggling, the won
