the poor bringing their children here, we are seeing cases of severely malnourished children from middle—class families too. he takes me to meet boy, just three years old, his immune system is failing. he needs intensive care, but there are no beds available. his family stay by his side. as we talk, the doctor interrupts us. a bed has been freed, and he is rushed to intensive care. this is one of the area's last functioning hospitals, but it's on the brink. all these people have spent

all the money they have to get this far. now the electricity is off, so all the machines are off, all be incubators are off, all the oxygen has stopped. and this happens all the time. the war between the saudi—backed government and the houthi rebels is now in its third year. the region's richest nation bombing its poorest. it's killed thousands and left millions homeless. we head across town. wherever you go, displaced people line the streets. with all borders closed, there's no escape. even the refugee camp offered no protection for mohammed and his family. hudaydah is yemen's main port city —
3:04 am
it should be a lifeline, but now it's barely operating, after the saudi coalition bombed the cranes and blocked their replacements. food should not be a weapon of war, food should be a weapon of peace. 95% of all the food that we need to feed the innocent people comes through this sport. if this port is bombed and completely made useless, literally hundreds of thousands of children will die and millions of people will die along with it. but it's notjust starvation that the war is causing. yemen now faces the worst cholera

heartbreaking images. another child born into a war that has now taken his life. nawal al maghaf, bbc news, yemen. america's secretary of state has acknowledged that the united states may not be able to win the war in afghanistan, in contrast to president trump's speech on monday. rex tillerson told reporters in washington the taliban couldn't win either and at some point there would have to be peace talks. he said pakistan could play an important role in bringing the taliban to the negotiating table, but would have to change its own long—standing policy. i think the president was clear: this entire effort is intended to put pressure on the taliban, to have the taliban understand, you will not win a battlefield victory. we may not win one, but neither will you. and so at some point,
3:07 am
we have to get to the negotiating table and find some way to bring this to an end. we have witnessed terrorist organisations being given safehaven, inside of pakistan, to plan and carry out attacks on us servicemen, us officials, disrupting peace efforts inside of afghanistan. pakistan must adopt a different approach. well, 2a hours after his speech, president trump is in arizona. let's go live there now. he's just coming out onto the stage. music plays # i love this land # god bless the usa # and i'm proud to be an american

3:19 am
the fake media. they make up stories, they have no sources in many cases. they say a source says, there is no such thing. but they don't report the facts. just like they don't want to report that i spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry, and violence. i strongly condemn the neo—nazis, the white supremacist, and the kkk. i openly called for unity, ceiling, and love, and they know it, because they were all there. —— healing. so, what! did... so, what i did, is, i thought, i am did... so, what i did, is, i thought, iam really did... so, what i did, is, i thought, i am really doing this more than anything else, because you know where my heart is... ok? i am really doing this to show you how damned dishonest these people are. so, here

dishonest media. he also got the crowd to boo the people with the cameras, claiming again he forcefully condemned the white supremacists in charlottesville. returning to his speech 2a hours ago, he said we are all together. when one american suffers, we are all suffering. words of unity. he said the entire arena stands united against thugs who promote bigotry and violence and hatred. he said there were very few protesters outside. that is not true. there are quite a few across from the convention centre in phoenix. despite what he is saying, the arena he is speaking to is not full to capacity. we will go back to that, but more international news. one of the suspects from barcelona
3:24 am
told a court that they were planning a much larger assault targeting monuments. tom burridge reports from barcelona for us. in the wake of the deadliest terror attack in spain in years, four men moved from barcelona last night. one by one, they were led into a high—security prison outside madrid. the four men in court today are all linked in different ways to last week's attacks and a wider plot. mohamed houli chemlal, this morning taken to court in his hospital pyjamas. last wednesday, he was badly injured in an explosion in the town of alcanar. he admitted in court the group was planning a larger attack. he will remain in prison, and faces terrorism charges. driss oukabir‘s passport was found in the rented van which was driven with such deadly effect down las ramblas the following day. he has also been imprisoned and charged.
3:25 am
the man driving the van, younes abouyaaqoub, was shot dead by police yesterday in countryside outside barcelona. another suspect, salah el karib. he owned an internet cafe in ripoll and tonight remains in custody pending further enquiries. there have been police raids tonight in ripoll and elsewhere. and the fourth man in court, mohamed aalla. he denied being the owner of the audi a3 used in the attack in the coastal resort of cambrils on friday morning. today, he has been released without charge. it's now been confirmed that a speed camera clocked four of the attackers as they drove to paris in that very car a week before the attacks. police in catalonia say their investigation is far from over. in las ramblas, five days on, there is a palpable sense of defiance. spain is a country where much of life is lived outdoors, and no amount of terror will change that.
3:26 am

3:27 am
an improving picture in northern ireland. cloud breaking to give some sunny spells. starting to see things a bit brighter nibbling in across south—west of wales and south—west england as well. time to see what happens through the rest of wednesday. this area of cloud and rain is tied in with this weather front. slowly pushing eastwards across the country. ahead of that front, warm and muggy air across east anglia and south—east england. if the sunshine comes out through the cloud, it could become very warm. generally, the weather turning a bit fresher from the west as the day goes by. temperatures getting into the low 20s, perhaps even mid— 20s in the warmest areas in the west. further east, we could see highs of 27. to get that, we need some sunshine. 27 would be the hottest
3:28 am
day of august so far. wednesday night, rain taking a while to clear from north—east scotland. through the night, showers from north—western areas. a fresh night, temperatures 13—14 fairly widely. the picture through thursday, a north—west, south—east split. a flat ridge of high pressure in the south, keeping weather largely dry for southern areas on thursday. close to the low pressure in the north—west, seeing a number of showers affecting northern ireland, scotland and the north—west of england. the driest and sunniest weather across southern and eastern areas. that's your forecast.
