hello, i'm kasia madera, this is outside source. a day after pulling the us out of the iran nuclear deal, president trump warns iran there'll be consequences if tehran restarts its nuclear programme. mps in tehran react by burning the us flag in parliament and chanting "death to america". mike pompeo meets kimjong un in north korea, securing the release of three us citizens and setting a date and place for a summit between washington and pyongyang. and we speak to the woman who got married just five days after her arm was bitten off by a crocodile. a day after pulling out of the iranian nuclear deal, president donald trump has fired off a new threat. he's warning that there will be
9:01 pm
severe consequences if tehran re—starts its nuclear programme. i would advise iran to not to restart their nuclear programme, i would advise them very strongly. if they do, there will be very severe consequences. when he pulled out of the deal last night, donald trump said it was defective at its core. reaction, and fall out, has been swift. europe's leaders insist the deal is still alive. but iran's supreme leader says if trade relations aren't guaranteed, iran will abandon it too. ayatollah ali khamene spoke earlier. translation: if you can get a guarantee in which we can place our confidence, then you can continue. if you do not succeed in obtaining a definitive guarantee, and i really doubt that you can, that is the point from which we cannot continue.
9:02 pm
reaction inside the iranian parliament has been pretty robust. politicians are shouting "death to america". setting the united states‘ flag on fire and burning a piece of paper which they say represents the nuclear deal. the uk, france, china, russia and germany were the other signatories of the deal that was brokered in 2015. their message, "the deal is not dead". britain today said it had no intention of walking away. here's the british foreign secretary boris johnson speaking to parliament. britain has no intention of walking away. instead, we will co—operate with the other parties to ensure that while iran continues to restrict its nuclear programme, then its people will benefit from sanctions relief in accordance
9:03 pm
with the central bargain of the deal. i cannot yet go into detail on the steps we propose to take, but i hope to make them available as soon as possible, and i spoke yesterday to my french and german counterparts. the us is reportedly threatening sanctions on european and american companies doing business in iran. germany is one of tehran‘s largest trading partners. here's their foreign minister today. translation: our aim is clear. we remain committed to the nuclear deal. not only for our own interest. that is why we will be working on this deal to have a future. the world's nuclear energy watchdog says the current deal is binding: "the iaea can confirm that the nuclear—related commitments are being implemented by iran". but american‘s allies, israel and saudi arabia have long opposed the deal.
9:04 pm
they're also both sworn enemies of tehran, and of each other. this article on saudi's english newspaper arab news, is defending trump's decision. the kingdom has been fighting iran in a proxy war in yemen for three years. and back in washington, the message was clear. the us president made the right decision. here's his national security adviser on cbs earlier. i don't think you will bring us closer, i think iran is bringing us closer, i think iran is bringing us closer to war with its belligerent activity. they had been moving missiles, in this area that can hit any target inside israel, that's why we've seen it recent israeli strikes. it's that aggressive militaristic behaviour by iran on the ground in the region that is the real threat. john bolton is one of
9:05 pm
the president's latest appointments to his administration, now many think the president is surrounded by iran hawks. here's barbara plett—usher on that. we know it is something that president trump had wanted to do for quite a long time. he'd made that campaign promise and wanted to fulfil it. and he was admonished by his administration over the past year not to do so, not least because it would create rifts with america's allies and create uncertainty in the middle east when the last thing they need there is a potential for conflict. but you are right, his national security team has changed in the last month or so, and he now hasjohn bolton advising him, and mike pompeo, both of whom have been very hawkish on iran in the past, both of whom have been very critical of the deal. and mr bolton has certainly advocated for regime change in the past. so at the very least, i think they will have reinforced mr trump's instincts. and ongoing concerns that we still have yet to see this plan b?
9:06 pm
what will happen next? there isn't a plan b as far as we are aware. mr trump is speaking today before his cabinet meeting. he was talking about saying there was consequences if iran restarted its nuclear programme. but he hasn't actually laid out a strategy for how he wants to prevent that, other than scrapping the accord and reimposing sanctions. he said that they would be the strongest sanctions ever, so it's not entirely clear if he was preferring to the old sanctions being snapped back, or if there'd be new ones as well. —— referring to the old sanctions. but that seems to be the plan, which brings us to where we were in 2012 before the agreement was being negotiated. and if mr trump and his administration believe the strong sanctions will force iran to come back to the table a deal that the us feels is on better terms, then that could be quite
9:07 pm
an aggressive or controversial approach, if it's played out over in the next months, and could lead to more confrontation. so that's what everyone in washington is wondering now, what's the next step? that hasn't been completely articulated. lets turn the focus on north korea, the country's released three american prisoners, handing them over to the us secretary of state mike pompeo. the president broke the news on twitter, "i am pleased to inform you that secretary of state mike pompeo is in the air and on his way back from north korea with the three wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. he said he was looking forward to meeting those three men. let's find out a bit more about the actual three detainees who have been released. they're kim dong—chul, detained in 2015 on spying charges,
9:08 pm
and sentenced to ten years‘ hard labour. kim sang—duk, also known as tony kim, was detained on espionage charges in april 2017 while working at the pyongyang university of science and technology. then a month later kim hak—song was held on suspicion of "hostile acts" while working at the same university. from seoul, here's laura bicker. there was a study done this recently, and over 500 south koreans are thought to still be in north korea. but there are certainly six that are concerned that have concerned the korean government, they have been asking the north korean government to try and get them back. they say that they've been in negotiations and now will negotiate harder. they say they are concerned that this is part of their plan, but it's also worth mentioning we just had a statement from tony kim's family. he is one of the three detainees from the us who is now on his way back to united states
9:09 pm
after being held for more than a year. he was working for the pyongyang university of science and technology, along with kim hak—song, who was certainly taken. there are members of the universities who have been campaigning for their return. the statement says from tony kim's family, "we are grateful for the release of our husband and father, tony kim, and the other two american detainees. we want to thank all those who have worked to contribute to his return home. we also want to thank the president for engaging directly with north korea, and mostly be thank god for tony's safe return." so that is one family who are incredibly grateful to see tony kim return home to the united states. and certainly here in south korea, all these developments being watched incredibly carefully. after that meeting that they had between president moon and kimjong—un, hopes here are high that the us and north korea can come to some kind of a deal.
9:10 pm
speaking earlier donald trump said the location of his meeting with kimjong un would be released in the upcoming days. while we don't have the details, he did say it will not be in the demilitalized zone between north and south korea. here's the president on the importance of those talks. i want victory for the workers, that is what we are talking about. that is what we are talking about. that is the only prize i want. anything can be scuttled, everything can based than i could be scuttled. a lot of good things can happen, a lot of bad things can happen. i believe that we have both sides wanting to negotiate a deal, i think it will be a very successful deal. i think we have a really good shot at making it
9:11 pm
successful. lots of things can happen. the opposition in malaysia has won an historic general election victory. their supporters have been celebrating, driving through the streets of the capital hooting their horns. it's a huge upset, they've defeated a governing party the barisan nasional, which has been in powerfor 57 years, ever since the country gained its independence. the turning point was when this man, mahathir mohamad, the former prime minister came back out of retirement aged 92, switching sides to lead the opposition to victory. he's been giving the good news to his supporters. there will be a holiday tomorrow and the day after. cheering . and also saturday and sunday, so
9:12 pm
you have a four—day holiday. but there'll be no holiday for them. we have to work. lots more still to come, we'll be looking at the immediate effect of all that us steel pulling out of the nuclear deal. here, the german car—maker, bmw is recalling more than 300,000 vehicles in the uk because of a safety issue concerning their power supply. the recall affects several models produced between march 2007 and august 2011. it follows an investigation by the bbc, which showed vehicles could stop while being driven. despite this, the financial times, motor industry correspondent, peter campbell says this won't do
9:13 pm
too much damage to bmw. we all are member toyota of years ago recalled lots of their vehicles for unintended acceleration, and they recalled vehicles for having buns on the windows that melted in the heat. and yet in the same year, they were still the world's largest car—maker. we all know the vw scandal a few years ago affected 11 meet at 11 million vehicles around the world, yet they're still the world's biggest car—maker. in the long run, there is still so many people buying cars that will not think about it. this will not hurt bmw in the long run. this is outside source live from the bbc newsroom. our lead story. president trump warns iran there will be severe consequences if it restarts its nuclear programme after the us withdrawal from an international agreement. lets take a look at some of the other stories being covered here in the bbc‘s newsroom.
9:14 pm
the afghan capital kabul has been hit by two apparently co—ordinated attacks. the health ministry says at least seven people have been killed and 17 people are injured. the islamic state group says it was behind the attack in a police compound. that's on bbc farsi. the nigerian government says it's taking swift action to ensure that ebola does not enter the country following a fresh outbreak in the democratic republic of congo. officials are tightening vigilance at airports and making more use of thermometers to screen passengers. bbc afrique covering that. and in poland, this lorry carrying tonnes of chocolate, overturned, spilling most of it's load onto the highway. the melted chocolate covered the entire road, blocking off six lanes of traffic. the liquid chocolate started to solidify, causing more even problems. now i want to look a little deeper into the iran nuclear deal,
9:15 pm
in a moment we'll talk sanctions, but first. let's look at how the 2015 deal gave the iran economy a boost. the bbc‘s reality check team have been analysing the numbers. this chart illustrates how iran's growth was in decline in the years before the deal. but this spike in 2016 shows how gdp grew by 12.5%. although that's since fallen, the initial boost was thanks to the hike in oil exports. in 2013, iran exported 1.1 million barrels per day. that more than doubled today. and non—oil exports in the year to march 2018 reached $47 billion. i've been speaking to bbc
9:16 pm
persia presenter, rana rahimpour. i've spoken with several people from all over the country, and they are deeply worried. they're divided, but some people are supportive of mr trump's decision to leave the deal. they think the benefit of the deal really did not reach the ordinary people, and it was the political elite getting rich. but at the same time they are worried, sometimes the talk about possible war. some people talk about possible war. some people talk about possible war. some people talk about going back to before the deal in 2015, and they worried that they wouldn't have access to foreign—made medicine. they are talking about inflation and possible deadlock in all this is in iran. and i think that's understandable because they have all the experience that wants. i'm assuming the social media there is dominated by this? that wants. i'm assuming the social media there is dominated by this7m certainly is, it exploded last night
9:17 pm
after the announcement of president trump. but people are divided, some treated with hash tags thank you trump. and those are partly the anti—american hard—line opponents of the deal, and they were trying to put more private —— pressure on president rahane, but also there are people who are anti—with the regime, and they hope that with the pressure leaning, there'll be a regime change. the people inside were also on the defence, saying it did not make any difference to them whatsoever. now lots of speculation on mrtrump not whatsoever. now lots of speculation on mr trump not having a plan b. what are people on the ground saying in iran? they are worried, they also think he doesn't have a plan. they also feel very humiliated. don't forget iran has been committed to the deal. according to the international atomic agent —— energy agency, iran has been completely transparent in its activities.
9:18 pm
monitors were inspecting iran's nuclear sites, so they feel they we re nuclear sites, so they feel they were playing by the rules, they stuck to their side of the deal, and they're still being punished. and what has happened is that those who weren't necessarily anti—trump are slowly becoming anti—trump. and that is the sad part of this decision. bbc persia presenter, rana rahimpour. rana spoke about concern in iran over president trump saying he'd reinstate us trade restrictions. they had been lifted in exchange for iran limiting its nuclear programme. that move leaves deals worth billions of dollars hanging in the balance and some of the worlds biggest companies counting the cost. joe miller is in new york. talk us through some of the wizards, losers, because amongst those companies really being affected by
9:19 pm
this is bowing. after president obama signed a deal in 2015, boeing saw an opportunity in iran because iran had an ageing fleet of airline, they signed a $20 billion each to provide iran with a series ofjumbo jets. now boeing is being given 90 days to either deliver those planes or pull out of their deal after those 90 days it'll be illegal to sell planes to iran. and that is quite a big blow for the company. and any blow to is the blow to the us economy as a whole, such as the size of the company, which makes up a big part of the dowjones. it was a big part of the dowjones. it was a big part of the us economy doing so well last year, but here's the thing, boeing shares are up a little bit, and that's because even though iran wasa bit, and that's because even though iran was a big growth opportunity for them, it is still a small part of their business. so while it is not good for the company at all, they say they're still continuing
9:20 pm
with their production, it will not affect parts of their business. shareholders are slightly relieved this afternoon. what about oil prices? iran is the third largest opec producer, a big hitter in terms of production of oil. accounting for 396 of production of oil. accounting for 3% of global demand, what are the figures saying? the figures are reacting quite strongly. we have seen brent crude reach three and a half a year, the highest they've reached is $77 a barrel. that is of course an reaction to the fact that iran's supply might be cut off from the global market. as you say, it's around 3% of global demand, but the question we should be asking is, why is oil not even higher than that? if we look back 3—4 years ago, will prices nearing $100 a barrel. and the answer to that is that even though these sanctions can really hurt the global oil market, us shale
9:21 pm
in texas and new mexico is booming, and beckoned more than fill the gap left by iran leaving the market. but nonetheless, any global instability, including conflict in syria and yemen and venezuela, it's not good for the oil price, pushing it up, and we will see quite a lot of volatility around today. thank you very much. lets take a quick look at some of the bbc business live page. bmw is extending a uk recall of its cars after a bbc investigation found that vehicles could cut out completely while they are being driven. it is recalling 312,000 vehicles made between march 2007 and august 2011, the models being recalled include the bmw one series, the three series, the 211 and its x1 petrol and diesel models the auto maker initially recalled 36,410
9:22 pm
petrol cars last year over safety issues when a driver was killed when they swerved to avoid a broken—down bmw. let's take a quick look at some of the bbc business live page. the owner of tinder and the match dating site says it's not worried about facebook‘s entry into the marketplace. that is a story we brought you earlier in the week. adding that it might even help de—stigmatise the online dating scene. lloyds of london has told all of its underwriters stop offering insurance through the nra after an investigation found that nra insurance programme provided liability insurance "to gun owners

9:30 pm
exactly that. the 8a—year—old fled the us in 1978 and after it was sitting guilty to unlawful sex with the teenager. before the academy and did his membership he dismissed the movement during an interview in poland and in that interview he said that i think this is the kind of mass hysteria that occurs in a society from time to time. adding that everyone is trying to back this movement mainly out of fear. i think it's movement mainly out of fear. i think its total hypocrisy. much good to james cook was in los angeles for us. i'm assuming there has been a lot of reaction to this. well, roman polanski remains a controversial figure. he's an oscar winning director, he won an oscar for directing the pianist in 2003, and is now the academy in the past week or two have decided to chuck him
9:31 pm
out. they have rewritten their standards for conduct in the wake of the harvey weinstein affair and the downfall of the powerful producer which sparked the movement. many people are asking the question what has changed for the academy? for decades this man was faded by hollywood and by his peers within the industry including some famous directors who were delighted with his work and thought it was amazing and some famous actors that work with them. what is different now? i think the short answer is that shame has crept up on the academy. his conviction for having sex with a routine road girl in 1977 stands. thank you very much for bringing us up—to—date on that. james cook in la for us. let's turn to gina, she is the woman that president trump has
9:32 pm
picked to run the cia. quite interesting point. before today we have never heard her voice and it's because she had spent most of her life undercover and had not spoken in public. today, however, she was answering many questions at her senate confirmation hearing. so, before she got to speak however her testimony was interrupted by the first of several protesters. let's have a look. they were removed from the room before she was even able to give her testimony. they are opposed to her appointment because she once rana to her appointment because she once ran a secret cia black sites in thailand where a terrorist suspect was water boarded. it was after the 9/11 attacks. senators questioned her repeatedly after her role in overseeing torture back then, this is, let's have a look at what she thought about it today. is, let's have a look at what she thought about it todaylj is, let's have a look at what she thought about it today. i would never, ever take cia back to an
9:33 pm
enteric ration programme. the cia follows the law. we followed the law then and follow the law today. i support the law, i would not support a change in the law but i will tell you this i would not put cia officers at risk by asking them to undertake risky to my controversial activity again. my question is this, ona activity again. my question is this, on a going forward basis, if this president asked you to do something thatis president asked you to do something that is morally objectionable, even if there is an opinion, what will you do? will you carry out that order or not? we are entrusting you ina very order or not? we are entrusting you in a very different position if you are confirmed. ijust need to know what response would be. my moral compass is strong and i would not allow the cia to undertake activity i thought was immoral even of it was
9:34 pm
technically legal. i would absolutely not permit it. gary has been watching the testimony in washington for us. this is back in 2002 just after 9/11 and she was sent to look after this secret prison in thailand. it was there that the techniques were used to interrogate suspects at all so it was there that a number of video tapes were made of those interrogations. she was part of the process a few years later that decided to destroy those video tapes. something she was also questioned about today. she effectively said that her view had changed on the use of those techniques. at the cia had not been trained as interrogators. it's not for them to do the interrogating, that's not where their strength is. their strengths are in gathering information and analysing information. stealing information even. she said she would never take
9:35 pm
the organisation back there, but a lot of democrats wanted to knowjust as you saw in that clip if president trump tells you to water boarded suspect will you do it? when she was asked that straight out she said president would not ask me to do that but i don't think my moral compass would take me there. and i won't let the cia agents do it anyway. a reasonably killed a clear message for her that we are not going back to those times. she continues to the question now in secret and we assumed that one of the points you will be asked about is this new york times report where we are being told that the organiser of the 9/11 attacks asked permission to share six paragraphs of information about her. he was that information about her. he was that information to be shared with the hearing. let's get some details and feedback romeo as to what these paragraphs could be and whether they will be shared. we don't know is the honest truth. they are, as you say,
9:36 pm
these details and some bridge in a statement from him who is still being held in guantanamo bay. his lawyer said he wants these put in front of the senate intelligence committee. there's no indication from the committee this morning as to whether they were prepared to see that or take that into consideration. this bride did manage to marry her fiance, consideration. this bride did manage to marry herfiance, her consideration. this bride did manage to marry her fiance, her husband after it ate incredibly miraculous escape. she had her arm bitten off bya escape. she had her arm bitten off by a crocodile. she married her fiance just five days after that attack. zanele ndlovu on her big day, but it wasn't the wedding she had in mind. the two had planned to marry on the 5th of may but took a quick pre—wedding honeymoon. they took the picture before theyjumped on the dinghy. it took us at least...
9:37 pm
a couple of seconds to realise that this is actually a real crocodile, like this is really happening, yeah. we both got into the water when the boat deflated, then it grabbed my arm and it pulled me down. then when i was getting loose it would grab my arm again and pull me down. so it bit me at least three times on this arm. then here ijust had a little bite here, yeah. so my first thought was i was going to die because the water was now bloody. but then after a while just thought, no, let me just fight. so ijust kind of hung in there until the tour guides were able to save me and get me onto their canoe. she was airlifted to a private hospital in bulawayo, her right arm amputated, and her left arm, she would discover, was broken, too. but five days later, they pushed ahead with their wedding. she dressed up in the hospital ward and was wheeled to the chapel. hers was the first wedding to be held in this tiny chapel, a place normally reserved for memorial services, on that day, this chapel was transformed into a place of celebration and triumph.
9:38 pm
the two are making plans to move zanele to britain to live with jamie, a volunteer with the national citizen service. the attack has given them a new appreciation of life. i could so easily have died in there and it is not every day people survive crocodile attacks. so i think i'm just grateful to be alive. so every day i wake up and i'm happy because i'm alive, yeah. it's just been great. we wish them all our congratulations, more on our website. now, 71 people of all national ivies died in the grenfell tower fire now, 71 people of all national ivies died in the grenfell towerfire in

it. you can actually feel red square shake as the military hardware rumbles by. victory day is always a spectacle here in the centre of moscow. earlier we saw 13,000 russian servicemen marching past a sea of soldiers washing across red square. and now we see the hardware. armored personnel carriers and tanks coming up with missile launches as well and russian military drones. the scale of this show reflects the importance of this occasion, of this day. victory day for russians and four the people running russia is a key pa rt four the people running russia is a key part of the collective memory.

with a 26 million citizens were killed in what is known as the great patriotic war. that sense of loss is still felt acutely. and a sense of pride that they were able to win the second world war. also victory day has become a cornerstone of a new state ideology under vladimir putin. one that is based on patriotism, military strength and the idea that russia is in a siege fortress threatened by external forces. russia is in a siege fortress threatened by externalforces. and now it is time for the military fly—past, 70 aircraft and helicopters flying over red square. carrying the latest hypersonic russian missiles. there are two m essa 9 es russian missiles. there are two messages being sent by this victory parade today. one messages to the russian people that you can be proud of your country, and does another message to the outside world that russia is a military superpower,

don't push us. steve rosenberg in red square. argentina has got to the imf in washington today. asking for emergency assistance and the finance minister has made the trip because the peso has lost almost a third of its value over the past year. the central bank has raised interest rates again and again, as now they're at an eye watering a0%. it is hoped that it will bring down inflation which is currently running at 25%. argentinians have painful memories of going to the imf before and you remember remember scenes like this once. people taking to the strengths and imac streets banging pots and pans. it secured a bailout then. they demanded argentina cut public spending. i was so unpopular that the government eventually severed all ties with the fund and
9:46 pm
rejoining recently. before the meeting the finance minister said that we are taking or talking with an imfthat that we are taking or talking with an imf that is very different than the one we knew 20 years ago. trying to make people little bit less worried. daniel has more on this for us. argentina has been trying to send signals to the markets that it won't let their currency depreciate but that has not the workings of the government is taking to a new level going to the imf to secure more money. some say around $30 billion in needed to protect the currency and also pay off argentina's debt. that has a huge political cost for the president because many argentinians simply don't trust the international monetary fund. they still blame the imf for many of the recessions that happened in the past and so the meeting is not only about securing trust and money from investors abroad, it's also about convincing the public at home and

that the plan will work out in the end. if he does will keep you posted. researchers say what they may have stumbled on it to work for baldness. it works by using an existing drug for osteoporosis, a disease that these are bones are brittle. the reason that substance in laboratory experiments and had donated hair follicles running in laboratory experiments and had donated hairfollicles running real hair which then continued to grow. the researchers now want to run clinical trials to see if it would help thinning scalp is to regain their hair. here is the david... and their hair. here is the david... and the impact that hair loss can have on people. don't make a difference for people all away around the world. men and women of all ages. it's not just world. men and women of all ages. it's notjust a middle—aged thing for men. it strikes early and it really affects our self—esteem. it's not about vanity, it's about self—esteem and self—confidence. they can change everything about their ability to mix with other

people and the way they see themselves. they can sometimes hide away. the search for products that seem to do something is ongoing. people will go to all sorts of cha rlata ns people will go to all sorts of charlatans out there. there is very good product that will help alleviate it, but they're few and far between. also as of products being sold as cures when they are not, really. that's the social impact, let's get the science behind all this, here's our health and science correspondent james. it actually started with a drug that is used in autoimmune diseases and with they noticed was a side effect of that which leads to side effects. what then they went through with the scientific process, what is that doing to hair cells they discovered it was changing a signalling pathway. in english that means you're stuck in a light. when it is read you don't go anywhere and when he is green you go. what is happening in your scalp is the light
9:49 pm
is red your hair does not grow. that is red your hair does not grow. that is the signalling process going on. what happens next? they tried to find a different drug and that's where the brittle bone disease struck that you mentioned. they discovered that and worked out in the lab that can make hair cells grow faster. not to galileo. if the global navigation system. for everything from set knaf to mobile phones to rescue services pans to the military. the uk played a major role in developing it and now i work there's the big question of what axis we will have to it after brexit. so, britain is now looking at developing their own system. here's our science editor. deux, un... this is europe's biggest venture into space so far and britain has been playing a key role. the rockets have been launching satellites made by british engineers. the spacecraft, when they reach orbit, are designed to provide a system of navigation
9:50 pm
and highly accurate timing. but the constellation of satellites known as galileo is now caught up in brexit. the british firms that have been winning orders for this huge project now face being frozen out and this is happening even before britain leaves the eu next march. company bosses gave evidence to mps today. there is strong anecdotal evidence that we are, you know, concrete cases from time to time, where we see that companies in other countries are winning business that we have not been invited to bid for. one of the conditions in that bid documentation from the european space agency is that all work has to be led by a eu —based company from march 19. and that means, he said, moving jobs to france and germany. and it is because of all this that the government is considering building a british satellite navigation system, going it alone space.
9:51 pm
this company, surrey satellite technology, has made the key parts of the galileo spacecraft and it could do the same for britain. if britain does go ahead and launch its own satellite navigation system, it will be run from a place like this and the feeling in the space industry is that the idea is perfectly feasible but it would be a massive undertaking. each satellite would cost about £35 million and to make the network function you would need about 30 of them altogether. the total cost of that? anything from £2— 5 billion. at stake are hundreds of high—techjobs. the galileo contracts are worth millions and valuable future work is also in the pipeline. sharing the burden of a big and complex system like this with european partners is the most cost—effective way to proceed. nevertheless, if we were able, not able to participate in that, then having a sovereign capability would be a considerable filipe to uk industry.
9:52 pm
for the government, there is a big security angle. galileo has a special, highly accurate signal for the military and emergency services. but the eu says britain won't be allowed to receive it. in return, britain is saying it will restrict access to ground stations in remote places like the falkland islands. it is a war of words with an uncertain outcome. david shukman, bbc news. now we have got some breaking news from malaysia because the opposition has won a historic general election. we are getting updates, that's the malaysian opposition, yes it has won that election victory. it's a huge, huge upset. they have defeated the governing party. coming out of retirement at the age of 92. the governing party has been in power for 57 years ever since the country
9:53 pm
gained independence. this is a really big result. the turning point was when this man, when the former prime minister came back out of retirement switching sides to lead the opposition to victory. he has been giving the good news to his supporters. the chief secretary will announce that there will be a holiday tomorrow as the day after. and also saturday and sunday. you have four days holiday. but there will be no holiday for the winners. that's the trouble with winning. you get to work. a staggering return of the age of 92. much, much more details on our website but for me and the outside source team thanks very much for watching. we will see you soon. goodbye. hello there. it's turning a little

cooler now everywhere over the weekend things could change, but so far we've seen most of the rain coming into the western side of the uk. of the sunshine on wednesday in the southeast temperatures still we re the southeast temperatures still were up as high as 21 celsius. the west and only with a cooler, cloutier but we also had a spell of rain as well. removing its way eastward and what's left of it fairly quickly cleared away from east anglia and the south. a lot of sunshine follows on behind, many places will be dry and a few showers with most of the many northwest of scotla nd with most of the many northwest of scotland could be sharp in the middle of the day but these will fade away later on. temperatures a shade higher. cooling off in england and wales. nevertheless with light winds and sunshine and should feel like a decent day. what cloud we have will melt away during the thursday evening because we're have this area of high pressure across

the uk. does not last too long because we look at in the west again we have got other weather front and will bring rain for the western side of the uk. the company by stronger winds which will blow the rain into northern ireland in particular slowly later into west wales and the southwest of england. further east, we will see drive. sunshine around and breezy. maybe a touch warmer. 16 to 18 degrees. this weather front is moving its way eastward. very slowly. so slow that it's eventually going to stop. where it stops is the uncertainty. at the moment it looks like that front should stop across eastern scotland and eastern england so will be more proud here on sunday. perhaps rain at times that we will see the east coast of scotla nd we will see the east coast of scotland in the southeast of england. for the west we will be dry airand sea sunshine england. for the west we will be dry air and sea sunshine across the southwest and may well see heavy showers around. i took school or perhaps on saturday. likewise into
9:56 pm
sunday as well. the weather front should pivot a little to take the rain away from the southeast. at the same time this area of low pressure approaches closer to the southwest. there will be more showers the southwest and more showers and wales and heavy and sundry. and more dry and heavy and sundry. and more dry and sunny day for east of england as the rain gets stuck across scotland. some heavy rain around there. it will feel quite a bit cooler for a second half of the weekend. on monday we have about the same weather front but it is much weaker by this stage. not so much rain for scotland, that cloud may push back towards the east coast of england and it will be warmer. not as many because the low is building pressure. as the outlook we will see what is happening in the upper atmosphere so the jet stream will be quite weak. it's sort of slow moving. across the other side of the

atla ntic moving. across the other side of the atlantic is a much strongerjet strea m atlantic is a much strongerjet stream coming of north america and it looks like it should pick up these two areas of low pressure and steer them towards the uk for a midweek onwards. exactly where it those areas of low pressure going to arrive is in doubt because we've got these trying to build to the south and east. next week looks it should bea and east. next week looks it should be a bit warmer and will start with a few showers around, but for midweek it will be drier in the south. but those areas of low pressure there's always the chance of rain in the northwest. tonight at 10: donald trump warns of "very severe consequences" if the iranians restart their nuclear programme. in tehran — protests in the streets, after america withdrew from the nuclear deal signed three years ago, prompting much anger. translation: the president of america made some silly and superficial comments on the nuclear deal and threatened the people of iran. mr trump, i tell you on behalf of the iranian people,
9:58 pm
you are mistaken. at the white house, mr trump gave this response to iran's threat to return to its nuclear ambitions. i would advise iran not start their nuclear programme — i would advise them very strongly. if they do, there will be very severe consequence. but the british government says it has no intention of walking
