1:39 pm
compound, closed the side, saying that it would not be open to friday prayers, which are normally attended by thousands of muslims at the al—aqsa mosque. the grand mufti said that no force on earth would prevent people attending prayers there, so it has led to some growing tension. ina rare it has led to some growing tension. in a rare move, the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has made a telephone call to the israeli president benjamin netanyahu, in which he has condemned the attack. tomorrow sees the anniversary of turkey's failed coup, when mutinous soldiers attacked government buildings in an attempt to seize control. the turkish government is celebrating the defeat of the coup as a victory for democracy but tens of thousands of people have been dismissed from theirjobs. our turkey correspondent mark lowen reports. the nightmare was as forces try to
1:40 pm
ta ke the nightmare was as forces try to take the bosporus bridge. a tank approached. he lay in its path, between his tracks. are curiously he got up unhurt. then a second. you try to stop it again but did one over his arm. today he bears the scars of the coup. i came here for the sake of god, to gain his blessing. i am the sake of god, to gain his blessing. iam not the sake of god, to gain his blessing. i am not a the sake of god, to gain his blessing. iam not a hero. to the sake of god, to gain his blessing. i am not a hero. to be a hero i would have had to stop the tanks. i wish that the coup had never happened. on 15th july, rogue soldiers bombed government buildings and seized rose. more than 260 people were killed. the coup attempt failed. the coup soon became the purge, with over 50,000 arrested, accused of ties to the alleged plot.
1:41 pm
president erdogan called it a gift from god, to cleanse the virus of his followers. critics say that all dissent has been crushed. the government hit back that the real crime was the coup itself, not what came afterwards. the turkish rule of law and the turkish future, from a power hungry criminal network, 140,000 people have been dismissed 01’ 140,000 people have been dismissed or suspended. there is now a commission to look at all those cases. you will see when this episode is over that turkish democracy is functioning. the turkish tradition has been functioning. followers were in every corner of society. the purge went wide, tuwai, many believe. some have simply disappeared. this woman's husband thought at the university

linked to gulem. eyewitnesses said that masked men bundled him into a car on his way home and he has not been seen since. translation: i pray that he is alive. if they want to prosecute him do it legally, not by abduction. i do it legally, not by abduction. i do not believe that he backed the coup. i cannot raise our children without their father. others are fighting back against dismissals. protests in support of two academics on hunger strike for four man's calling for theirjobs back. alongside, the human rights moneymen is now sealed off, a bleak metaphor for turkey's plight. the wife of one is herself on hunger strike in solidarity. this, in a country hoping tojoin the eu. translation: one day your name is on the list and you are struck off, your life is turned upside down. you are killed off by the system. i cannot think of the alternative. are killed off by the system. i
1:43 pm
cannot think of the alternative! mortar lies for generations to come as turkey's rebirth, it is being celebrated as the legend of the 15th ofjuly. but for others it is a painful chapter that is still being written. it has been called the world's most deadly migration route. the sea crossing from libya to europe has claimed more than 2,000 lives so far this year — as desperate men women and children crowd onto small boats in the hope of reaching europe. they're put there by people smugglers, who exploit them for huge sums. charities and governments are also on the mediterranean. but although they say they are trying to achieve the same thing — as bbc arabic‘s rami ruhayem discovered — they are using very different tactics. the search and rescue charity hands
1:44 pm
of life jackets. just behind them three men on a speedboat approach. they want to take the engine from the migrants' they want to take the engine from the migra nts' boat. they want to take the engine from the migrants' boat. we are on a ship run by doctors without borders. their mission is to save lives on one of the deadliest migration routes in the world. on this day, they pulled out nearly 1000 migrants from six boats. the smugglers are often close by. the rescue is barely halfway through but we can see just a few metres away, this white speedboat, probably the smugglers, waiting until the boat is empty so that they can tow it back to libya to use again. it is highly possible but again we have no idea. we are humanitarians, we are not police. it
1:45 pm
is the same as when we find kalashnikov on the battlefield, we are not disarming the kalashnikov, we arejust there, are not disarming the kalashnikov, we are just there, to save lives. as more migrant boats arrived, the italian coast guard showed up in force. throughout the day the italian coast guard has been moving around, trying to set fire to as many of these smugglers' boat as possible, both rubber boats and wooden boats. they say this is the most important thing to do on the central mediterranean, to disrupt the business model of the smugglers, and this is how they do it. but this strategy is now under attack last week a report by amnesty international and this week a report from the house of lords both said that the smugglers have adapted their tactics by using boats in poorer condition and putting more people on them. but it is the migrants who are paying with their lives. those who made it known that
1:46 pm
they are lucky. this year alone more than 2100 people have drowned off the coast of libya. i took the risk because i knew that it was 50—50, either you survival you die. i came aboard andi either you survival you die. i came aboard and i believe that god would see me through. soon, they will all disembark in italy. but the tide in italy is turning against them. other eu countries have rejected repeated italian government pleas to open their ports to the rescue ships. for now, european governments remain focused on trying to seal off the central mediterranean route. we will have a summary of the business news in a minute. first, the headlines. calls for tighter restrictions on the sale of of acid
1:47 pm
after five people are attacked in east london within the space of 90 minutes. a former tv producer who tried three times to hire a hit man to kill his partner is jailed for 17 years. thousands gather to pay tribute to six—year—old sunderland fan bradley lowery, who died of cancer on friday. the business news now. visa has said it is considering offering incentives to uk businesses to go cashless, after introducing a similar scheme in the us. the payments company is selecting 50 small companies in the us to receive $10,000 if they only use cards. the companies have to bid by explaining how going cashless would affect them, their staff and customers. however, the idea has been criticised by consumer groups, who say cash is still vital for many people. train operators handle passenger complaints and delays almost as badly as they did a decade ago, according to research from consumer group which?.
1:48 pm
it also found punctuality levels on britain's railways were at their worst level in ten years. the group said a rail ombudsman is needed quickly to better handle disputes. but industry body the rail delivery group claimed complaints were falling. the british airline, easyjet, is setting up a new company in austria to protect its european business after britain leaves the eu. the new airline, easyjet europe, will be based in vienna. the company revealed that earlier this year it had applied for a new air operator's certificate in austria. if approved, the licence would allow easyjet to continue flying within and between eu states after brexit, regardless of the outcome of negotiations. we are all fed up with the railways, it seems. this might not be news to many people, but the consumer group, which? said that passenger satisfaction at how delays are dealt
1:49 pm
with stands at 35%. just 46% of people are happy with the way that complaints are managed. this co m pa res complaints are managed. this compares with 32% and 42% one decade ago. so it is an improvement but a pretty small one. bearing in mind that rail fares are up 9% above inflation. pete murray is the campaigns director of which?. what is going wrong? why aren't railways listening to the complaints? these are truly shocking results. there has been no meaningful improvement in passenger satisfaction over the last decade for the way that train companies handle delays and manage complaints. it is no surprise that, asa complaints. it is no surprise that, as a result, less than half of people think they are getting value for money from their train services. much more now needs to be done to ensure that things improve for long—suffering passengers. ensure that things improve for long-suffering passengers. in defence of the rail companies, rail passenger journeys have
1:50 pm
defence of the rail companies, rail passengerjourneys have gone up from 1 billion a year to 1.69, almost 1.7 billion. that is a huge increase. they are managing to cope as well as they coped ten years ago with a third more people. behind the statistics there are millions of passenger stories of people struggling with train services on a daily basis. which? has heard from thousands of people who are struggling with lots of things in their daily life, struggling to hold downjobs, picking their daily life, struggling to hold down jobs, picking up their daily life, struggling to hold downjobs, picking up their children from school nursery, because of delays, because of overcrowding on the railways. that's why we at which? have collected a dossier of the stories and we are handing them to the government, because we want them to deliver on their manifesto commitments and make a much—needed improvements for passengers. have your figures improvements for passengers. have yourfigures been improvements for passengers. have your figures been skewed improvements for passengers. have yourfigures been skewed by improvements for passengers. have your figures been skewed by one or two particularly bad offenders, i am talking of course about southern rail. we have seen a year of problems on southern rail but they
1:51 pm
are not the only train company that has struggled in last year. our satisfaction survey shows that many of the commuter train services have been struggling and that there are passengers right across the railways who are frustrated. that is why we now need to see the government delivering its commitment to introduce a rail ombudsman that will uphold complaints for those people who have problems with their train services. but we also need a rail regulator that is given property, so that it can take action against companies like southern rail when they are letting passengers down. wouldn't the olbison be a clumsy way of doing it? they can take ages to settle complaints. if there are as many complaints as you say, it could get very bogged down. we have ombudsman in financial services and energy and telecoms. it is a useful way to ensure that you have an independent arbiter who can hear what the passenger is saying, what the train company is saying, and who can resolve complaints. we simply don't have that on the railways, we haveit don't have that on the railways, we have it on every other major market,
1:52 pm
and it is something that we desperately need. thank you. the sale of government shares in royal bank of scotland in 2015 was "value for money", despite landing the taxpayer with losses of nearly £2 billion, according to the public spending watchdog. the report by the national audit office revealed the off—loading of a 5.4% stake revealed overall losses on the sale reached £1.9 billion, significantly higher than previously thought due to transactional costs which weren't first included. a racist aianb host has been fined $5,000 by authorities in california after she discriminated against an asian—american guest. tami barker cancelled dyne suh's booking, telling her in a message: "one word says it all. asian." the fine was imposed due to a new agreement between aianb and california's department of fair employment and housing. olives could be at the centre of a new trade war. us commerce secretary wilbur ross says he's looking at complaints filed by two us olive—producing firms who allege that they're being unfairly undercut
1:53 pm
by spanish exporters. they say spanish olives coming on to the market should be priced up to 223% higher. but lovers of that quintessential us cocktail, the dry martini, can take heart. the investigation specifically excludes those speciality olives — without which no such drink is complete. let's check in with the financial markets. they are pretty mixed. the pound is about1.3 against they are pretty mixed. the pound is about 1.3 against the dollar. quite strong at the moment, recovering the losses of the last few weeks. round about1.3. losses of the last few weeks. round about 1.3. that is all the business news. now, the proms return for their 123rd season with eight weeks of classical music from some of the world's most renowned musicians. tim muffett has been given exclusive, behind the scenes, access to the royal albert hall. they play the sailor's hornpipe.

1:55 pm
there is all kinds of different music. film music, dance music, you name it. it is notjust this venue. proms have been held at the albert hall since 1941. they began elsewhere back in 1895. this year, there are other unusual venues, like hull. we have been taking the proms out on the road for the past two years. we're going to hull, city of culture, and the dockside, there. a good place to play. handel's water music! thank you very much. that was absolutely beautiful. we will be playing at a car park in peckham, at southwark cathedral, different venues to get the message across that it is music that everyone can enjoy, in different parts of the country, different parts of the city, and just get involved. thank you very much indeed. it all began in 1895. it cost one shilling to come along and listen to classical music and the idea was to bring music
1:56 pm

england, some rain into the afternoon. tomorrow evening, that pushes south into northern england from scotland and northern ireland. for wimbledon, we are fine this afternoon. that could be a spot of rain around lunchtime tomorrow. then on sunday, lots of cloud around. quite warm. a shower or sport of rain cannot be ruled out from this week whether font that is edging its way southwards. on sunday for scotland, northern ireland and northern england, breezy, fresher and drier, but along that week whether font there will be jealous for the south. —— there will be showers for the cell. we cannot rule out rain for the british grand prix at silverstone, but the emphasis is on lots of dry weather this weekend. wherever you are, you will find a forecast online. if you're working the weekend and you have got monday and tuesday off, we have high pressure next week, so it is looking
