9:00 pm
hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. straight to singapore. that is kim jong—un being cheered earlier, he's in town to meet donald trump. that'll happen in a few hours‘ time, that‘ll happen in a few hours‘ time, both sides saying they are confident. but the americans have been clear, time and time again they have a number of red lines. the peat and verifiable and irreversible denuclearistion of the korea peninsula is the only outcome the us will accept. italy claims victory for its tough immigration policy after spain agrees to take 600 migrants who were refused to dock in sicily and malta. and if you want a breather from the summit, we will talk about the world cup, which is starting in three days‘ time. before we get into the details of
9:01 pm
the running to this summit between kim jong—un the running to this summit between kimjong—un and the running to this summit between kim jong—un and donald trump the running to this summit between kimjong—un and donald trump in singapore, utterly kristian fraser will be live in a couple of minutes‘ time and if you have questions about the summit, because it is a highly unusual event, send them my way. we will talk to kristian very soon. let me show you these pictures of kim jong—un earlier taking a tour in singapore. he went to the gardens by the bay, one of the city‘s main city attractions, andy had singapore‘s foreign minister, vivian balakrishnan, for company. all smiles and he‘s said they‘d been for a walk. from the gardens, mr kim headed to the marina bay sands hotel. here‘s the reaction when he arrived. cheering and applause. the people in that hotel were
9:02 pm
evidently very excited. donald trump is excited, too. he says... here we have the president meeting singapore‘s promised earlier, they had a working lunch run mr trump said he believed the summit will work out very nicely. singapore governor had a surprise for the president, though, an early birthday ca ke president, though, an early birthday cake with his birthday on thursday, and he turned 72. they decided to keep him... to market early. mike pompeo was looking forward to a slice and he has been involved in the presummit diplomacy. forget about the cake, he got down to much more serious matters later. the united states has been fooled before, no doubt about it. many presidents previously have signed off on pieces of paper only to find the north koreans are either didn‘t
9:03 pm
promise what they thought they had or remake donned their promises. the v matters. we will ensure we set up a system sufficiently robust that we are able to verify these outcomes and it is only once the v happens that we will proceed apace. of course, there is an incredible amount of work that goes into summits like these. that me show you some of the security detail. about 5,000 officials are involved. all the while, talks are already in full swing. this is pyonyang‘s foreign minister. officials on both sides are trying to finalise the details of the meeting. kim jong—un kimjong—un and kim jong—un and donald trump will sit down with only translators the company. and north koreans are finally being told about the summit. this is state tv there. it described it as historic, which
9:04 pm
isa it described it as historic, which is a huge shift in rhetoric towards the us, given often north korean state tv says it wants to destroy america. and one more thing. dennis rodman has arrived in singapore. the flamboyant former nba basketballer has travelled to north korea in the past and has struck up an unlikely friendship with kim jong—un. he has been to pyeongchang before, and, so, i guess it‘s what we‘d expect for him to be in town. he spoke to journalists in the airport. i‘m happy to be apart because i think that i‘ve brought awareness to a lot of things around the world, andi a lot of things around the world, and i think north korea has a good opportunity for this conference now, andi opportunity for this conference now, and i hope it‘s a success. opportunity for this conference now, and i hope it's a success. some people are getting caught up in the excitement around the summit because it is unusual but let‘s be clear not eve ryo ne it is unusual but let‘s be clear not everyone is excited about it. this bbc article you‘ll find on our website speaks to some of those who fled the north korean regime and they warn against romanticising a dictator. i want to show the
9:05 pm
thoughts of another north korean defector who now lives in the us. here he is talking about north korea‘s prison camps. here he is talking about north korea's prison camps. what we understood, if you were sent there, there is almost no way to go out our live. —— to come out alive. in our city, for instance, you see families who disappear overnight. we now know singapore is paying for costs relating to kimjong un‘s delegation. add in security, and it expects to pay around $20 million to host the summit, small change for the benefits of being centre stage. and this is how tuesday will play out. the summit is focused on one hotel. the summit at the capella hotel. the white marks the special security
9:06 pm
zone. at 9am tuesday donald trump and kim jong—un will meet. then you never know what will follow but there will be a photocall and a meeting with just the two of them and two translators. kristian fraser is in singapore. a couple of people have said where do all of america‘s allies fit into this? are they represented in any way at this get—together? represented in any way at this get-together? of course, that is used to be the six party talks so used to be the six party talks so used to be the six party talks so used to have china, russia, north and south korea, japan and the united states, all of them involved. those countries still have skin in the game and japan and south korea are being widely consulted. but there is a feeling among academics that we‘ve spoken to on the balcony this week that this has become too americanised and they point to china and what it has to lose in this because if north korea collapses, all the refugees go across the border. the north—east rust belt in china depends very much on the north
9:07 pm
korean economy, the nuclear weapons would be in the air, so to speak, if north korea fell. then what about the americans being on the chinese border? there is an awful lot that china fears from the north korean situation which is why some academics question why donald trump has put self centre stage show. the one thing to say about china, though, is they are very much the silent partner, twice he‘s been to see them before he met mike pompeo anti—arrived here in singapore aboard an airchina anti—arrived here in singapore aboard an air china 747. too many uk journos trumpeting trump‘s line this isa win journos trumpeting trump‘s line this is a win for him just because he‘s doing something that hasn‘t been done before, says one fewer. what is your assessment of the risks and benefits available the american president? that has been done of top ican think president? that has been done of top i can think of the top of my head and 92, 94, 99,2007,
9:08 pm
i can think of the top of my head and 92, 94, 99, 2007, 2012, agreements have been made with north korea to denuclearise or have a moratorium on the missile testing and every one of those agreements has collapsed. as mike pompeo says it is important to put in the v, the verification, because that has been missing from other agreements made with the north korean side. they‘ve spun them out for so long and really the american side doesn‘t know what there is, where it is, and how much of it there is. this time, it has to be different. the americans are acutely aware they‘ve been played before. while he might criticise previous presidents, of course, there are people who are here in singapore today who were working for previous administrations, and thinking about the ambassador for the philippines, a real expert on north korea. all that knowledge comes north korea. all that knowledge comes with him and all those people have been working on it before, they are present and they are pitching in to this effort on the american side.
9:09 pm
forever on watching who wants to see this unfold, i appreciate timetables and summits ten to go out the window one way or the other but what is the sketched out plan? mike pompeo says whatever happens tomorrow will set the framework for what happens next and he pushed back a little bit today that they haven‘t spent enough time on it or they don‘t have enough expertise but i‘ve been making the point here to academics it is perfectly reasonable he gets to know kim jong—un perfectly reasonable he gets to know kimjong—un and he perfectly reasonable he gets to know kim jong—un and he takes the measure of him and if it is a success from that point, they can build up and bring all the experts in. there‘s no point doing that until you know what he is really about. is he going to make some of the commitments he said he will? to be honest, i don‘t think there is anything wrong with meeting kim jong—un there is anything wrong with meeting kimjong—un and giving up that concession of meeting a sitting us president. we‘ve seen in the past the likes of nixon and mao and reagan and gorbachev, martin
9:10 pm
mcguinness and ian paisley. if you get sworn enemies together in a room, and personal relationships can develop, things can flow from that and wejust develop, things can flow from that and we just have to wait and see what might be down the line in the months to come. kristian, thank you. kristian fraser is in singapore covering this trump— kim summit. you‘ll get complete coverage whether you are watching outside on the bbc world news or in the new k on the bbc news channel. let‘s turn to another important news story. spain has allowed 600 migrants to come onshore whereas italy and malta said they were not welcome. this is one of the pictures of the rescue. as you can see, this is taking place at night. the migrants began their journey in libya but their boat fell apartand journey in libya but their boat fell apart and they had to be pulled out
9:11 pm
of the water. one of the larger rescue vehicles try to take them to the nearest shore which was italy. but the italian said no. then malta said no. this was the scene on board one of the larger rescue boats. so many people packed in, nowhere to 90, many people packed in, nowhere to go, stuck in the mediterranean with only enough food for two or three days. these people didn‘tjust find themselves in the middle of the met, they found themselves in the middle ofa they found themselves in the middle of a major political battle. the context is nearly 14,000 migrants have arrived in italy by see this year. last year, that figure was higher than 120,000. as you can see, greece, 30,000, spain 22,000, have taken far fewer. in the recent italian election, the far right party made much of this and it did very well. the new interior minister of italy is this man. the leader of the league party. he‘s been telling to twitter today, saying, "saving
9:12 pm
lives is a duty. turning italy into a refugee camp is not. this time someone is saying no. " his point was malta should take them. this is what the maltese president said. this is something like in a family when we discuss and there could be an argument but those arguments are not diplomatic crisis. we are friends. we are friends. we are basically one mediterranean family. next, enter the spanish prime minister who said... but the italian interior minister has welcomed that, he has declared victory saying evidently raising your voice pays off. translation: i have great satisfaction, as deputy premier and as interior minister, and as a father at how the issue of this barge is resolving itself, this
9:13 pm
umpteenth barge. it is a first important sign italy cannot continue to endure alone this burden. the maltese prime minister isn‘t sounding considered free. he says... one of these big rescue boats is now going to have to go from the mediterranean all the way across to valencia on the coast of spain. that is where the migrants will come ashore but we already know there are other boats carrying migrants leaving libya, heading north towards europe, and these will test your‘s systems and relationships. i‘ve been speaking to the bbc reporter sara minetta. italy has been the country that has taken in the highest number of refugees and migrants, and now they are saying they are closing the
9:14 pm
ports, so, basically, malta has been called to step up. it is a small island, they don‘t have the logistical capacity or the financial capacity, like italy. but he's right, you made a stand and spain has had to take the people. this is a good opportunity also for sanchez to send a strong message both to europe and spanish public opinion, so europe and spanish public opinion, so he wants to sake spain is here, we have a new government and we want to count more in european developments, and at the same time to say to the spanish people we are much more socially concerned government, and he also marks a clear line with the previous conservative government. equally, the leak in that he wants to send the leak in that he wants to send the message it is the opposite, that it is saying no. what they are trying to push forward is the line that europe needs to act. there was an agreement, a relocation agreement
9:15 pm
of 160,000 migrants from italy and greece to other european countries. until now, this agreement has largely been ignored. italy has been lamenting for many years that europe has left it alone so now this populist party has built its consensus on populist party has built its consensus on this kind of sentiment thatis consensus on this kind of sentiment that is widespread in italy and it is saying it is time for europe to step in and change the rules of the game. the problem as it is going to ta ke game. the problem as it is going to take time and we are at the beginning of summer when most of the arrivals are now going to take place. what is going to happen next time there is a boat arriving in front of italy‘s shores? time there is a boat arriving in front of italy's shores?” time there is a boat arriving in front of italy's shores? i lose count the number of times i‘ve heard the eu is saying it‘s try to find a collective solution to this issue but it is struggling, isn‘t it? collective solution to this issue but it is struggling, isn't mm is but the previous government didn't really... likes so much this relocation of migrants. the new one will send this clear line. and they
9:16 pm
have the advantage of the public opinion, unlike the public it union in italy or greece, it isn't against immigration. so if you see the studies, most of them show the public opinion is one, which is the most tolerant or the most tolerant in europe. the anti—immigration wave, despite the economic crisis in spain, has not reached strongly the political sphere so we have capacity to manoeuvre. we will report from moscow because it is three days until the world cup. the russians are preparing for the first match against saudi arabia. robbie williams is preparing to perform at the opening ceremony. theresa may has been talking to conservative mps, calling for unity from potential rebels as the government looks to overturn a series of defeats in the lords.
9:17 pm
here‘s ben wright explaining one of the government‘s new amendments on this legislation. they‘ve already tabled one amendment on the so—called meaningful vote. that‘s the vote that mps will get right at the end of the negotiating process. there had been an amendment passed in the lords that would have effectively given mps the right not only to reject the deal brought back by the government but also to instruct ministers to go back and carry on negotiating, perhaps, putting the ball firmly in parliament‘s court. now, the government have already put an amendment down on that. saying that, while mps can have the right to turn the bill down, the deal down, if they want, ministers promised to come back after 28 days and update parliament on what they would do instead. so, that‘s an amendment they hope will defuse the tory rebellion on that front. we live at the bbc newsroom. our
9:18 pm
lead story, kim jong—un we live at the bbc newsroom. our lead story, kimjong—un has been out taking a tour of some of the sides ahead of tuesday‘s summit with donald trump who has been tweeting about excitement being in the air. let‘s turn to some of the main stories from bbc world service. officials in afghanistan say a suicide bomber killed at least 12 people in kabul. a man blew himself up people in kabul. a man blew himself up outside a government ministry is people were leaving their offices early for ramadan. they italy has found a man guilty of abducting a british model. he was accused of luring chloe ayling from south london to milan with a promise of a photo shoot and of them, kidnapped herfor a ransom. photo shoot and of them, kidnapped her for a ransom. he photo shoot and of them, kidnapped herfora ransom. he has photo shoot and of them, kidnapped herfor a ransom. he has received a 16 year sentence. that is from bbc world service. these are pictures from new york at the moment a bin lorry lost control in brooklyn. it rammed cars, mounted the pavement. mine cars were struck and no one was injured. the driver was arrested at the scene. from today in america
9:19 pm
internet companies won‘t be obliged to treat all content on the internet equally. this is the issue could net petrology. isn‘t a bomb brought in the rules to defend it, donald trump got rid of them when he became president. let‘s bring in paul blake live from the usa. now the rules are going, tell us what companies can do which they couldn‘t do before. going, tell us what companies can do which they couldn't do beforem going, tell us what companies can do which they couldn't do before. it is sort of... they can block, potentially throttle and treat certain content with high—speed fast lane on the information superhighway, if they disclose it. that is the bit the trump administration is stressing, they say, hang on, we‘re rolling back the roles but we are saying that companies are allowed to treat content on the internet differently as long as they are upfront about is closing in. a number of people are upset about it to say all content should be treated equally. we‘ve seen a number of protests on the
9:20 pm
internet and in person about net neutrality, people afraid it‘ll fracture the internet, becoming a cable tv package where you have to pay for certain content on the network which is the big fear for a lot of people. some people might think we pay different amounts for cable tv packages, we pay different amounts for train tickets, different amounts for train tickets, different amounts for train tickets, different amounts for many things in life, why shouldn‘t we pay different amounts for the internet? i think a lot of the isps would say that but they say they have no plans to start throttling or locking any of the content that is on the networks that comes content that is on the networks that comes into your home. they say they wa nt to comes into your home. they say they want to see more freedom to innovate, in their words, and more freedom to conduct business, and their business models, and they want to be able to particularly explore business models that allow them to, sort of, separate content into different categories, strike a business deals. the fear there is if they do some of the big internet
9:21 pm
companies would hold sway and smaller start—up companies, maybe someone competing with facebook or google or twitter won‘t be able to because the field will be uneven, the deck will be stacked against them. i filled we've talked about this issue a lot, is it now settled in the us? it isn't. there is a court case, 22 states are suing the government to try to bring net neutrality back. there is also a bill making its way through congress. the democrats are championing that, they hope to see the house of representatives vote on it by the end of the year. it has another political angle in that democrats are championing it is hoping it‘ll bring out more young people towards the end of the year when the us goes into the mid—term elections. 0k, paul, thank you. jaguar land rover says it is going to move the production of its land rover discovery suv from birmingham, where it is currently made, to...
9:22 pm
slovakia. let‘s get more of this from amy cole, who reports from birmingham. when any company announces it is making job losses, it is on the face of it bad news. what jaguar land rover is doing in the long—term is possibly not as tight it sounds. jl r, owned by the indian group tata motors, says it is moving production of its land rover discovery to its factory in slovakia but it says it remains committed to the uk and will be refitting its plant here in solihull moors so that it can make a new generation of range rover models. it‘ll be pumping in a lot of investment. we‘re not sure of the figure exactly but we know it‘ll run into hundreds of millions of pounds. so, when the factory is up to speed, it‘ll be able to make new range rover and range rover sport cars that are electric and hybrid, as well as the classic petrol and diesel versions. and the company has previously said all its cars would
9:23 pm
be available in either electric, hybrid or petrol or diesel, from 2020. what this means is there will be somejob losses 2020. what this means is there will be some job losses and it‘ll affect agency staff. they will lose their jobs for the interim period, while production is being moved to slovakia, but once this factory‘s back up and running and can make those electric and hybrid cars, they will be taking on staff again. what the company says is the potential job losses of some agency employed staff in the uk is a tough one but forms part of their long—term manufacturing strategy as they transform their business globally. there are about 1800 agency staff that work at this plant in solihull moors out of a workforce of 10,000, and, previously, they‘ve said the manufacture of the discovery would be split between solihull moors in slovakia so perhaps today‘s announcement isn‘t that much of a surprise but what this does show is that jaguar land rover has global
9:24 pm
reach but it is still very much committed to uk manufacturing. i want to tell you about microsoft and gaming. it has unveiled some big budget sequels to time in with the e three games expo in los angeles. on top of that, it has board four indie studios and created one as well which has doubled its ability to gain create. let‘s have a look at those. welcome to eat 32018! -- e3 2018! something's happening to me! the sun is out, the sky is blue and it‘s the perfect day for a drive. we will be back in a couple of
9:25 pm
minutes where we will see a bbc reality check on some of donald trump‘s claims that his g7 allies are gripping america off. —— are ripping america off. we will take a look at some of the big weather stories happening around the world and first quite close to home, western europe why we have been peppered by heavy storms for weeks now. over the weekend it was germany‘s turn to see some massive thunderstorms. those thunderstorms will some serious flooding with floodwaters strong enough and high enough to lift cars up and shove them down the flow of flood water. the floodwaters were pretty deep in places as well. 80 millimetres of rain falling places as well. 80 millimetres of rainfalling in places as well. 80 millimetres of rain falling in the space of a few hours. that caused some significant issues for germany. we could see some further storms over the next few days, not just affecting
9:26 pm
some further storms over the next few days, notjust affecting germany but also more across france and spain. at the moment, as it has been for the past few weeks, the jet strea m for the past few weeks, the jet stream pattern is split with cooler flowing across spain, portugal and france, partly what is causing the thundery downpours. at the moment, low pressure is with us. monday‘s storms focused across northern parts of france with the risk of flooding and large hail but for tuesday, the risk is across the southern parts of france, the north of spain and into eastern parts of france, too, where there could be some localised flooding and large hail stones. while the weather is severe across parts of western europe, towards the south—east, it is hot on sunny with temperatures in athens reaching 33. we have seen around 231 millimetres of rain in the last 24 was in the south—east of bangladesh, that is an enormous amount of rain. an area of low pressure is enhancing the monsoon across bangladesh and india
9:27 pm
and myanmar, formerly known as burma, where we will see 200—400 millimetres of rain in the next couple of days, with the risk of flooding. across western india, we have had half a metre of rain over the last four days across some western areas. the monsoon is starting to weaken a little bit so we will see around 25—50 millilitres of rain over the next few days, which is quite heavy but nothing like the kind of rain we have seen which has brought some flooding issues across the western side of india through the weekend. meanwhile, across mexico, we have this to look at, harry kane bud, getting close to california. it is weakening, bring in some heavy rain to western mexico. we have some wet and windy weather affecting new zealand, the strongest winds and rain, with localised flooding. first home for the united kingdom,
9:28 pm
tomorrow looks like a cloudy dace are not quite as warm but mostly dry with sunny spells with the best of these in western areas. a full forecast for you in an hour. —— for you in half an hour. hello, i‘m ros atkins, this is outside source, and these are the main stories here in the bbc newsroom. kimjong un and donald trump both said to be supremely confident going in to tomorrow‘s summit. the americans are emphasising their red lines. the complete verifiable denuclearisation of the korean peninsula is is only outcome the us will accept. we will spend some time fibbing picking out the fall out from that disastrous g7 summit where president trump tore into the behaviour of some of his allies. we will see what he had to say. we will feature journalists working in different languages including
9:29 pm
reports on violent protests in while flying to singapore, donald trump took careful aim at some of his closest allies. he‘d just left the g7 and tweeted. all this because ofjustin trudeau‘s "false statements". then the white house trade adviser, peter navarro, went on fox news and said this. there‘s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages
9:30 pm
in bad faith diplomacy with president donaldj trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door, and that‘s what bad faith justin trudeau did with that stunt press conference. that‘s what weak, dishonest justin trudeau did and that comes right from air force one. more angry tweets from airforce one followed. "fair trade should be called fool trade", with trump claiming canada has a $17 billion trade surplus with the us, and taxes us dairy products at 270%. well, our economics correspondent web page andrew walker has been working through these claims for the bbc‘s reality check. i talked to him earlier. $17 billion i think probably refers to the deficit in us trading goods with canada last year — that‘s to say the americans buy $17 billion worth of goods more
9:31 pm
than they sold to canada. you have to bear in mind, however, there is a lot of trade in services, and the figures generally in the us trade with canada suggest that is actually, they actually sell more by way of services to a sufficiently large extent to off set the deficit on goods trade. so you can argue actually the us is doing very well out of that relationship. the 270% figure he talked about on taxes on dairy produce going into the united states, there certainly is one particular category of dairy where that applies to, and it‘s also true in general that the canadian dairy sector is very protected and very regulated, but you know, if you‘re looking atjust how protective countries are by way of tariffs, you can always choose particular examples of particular goods to underline a particular point, and if you look at average levels across the economy, then it‘s certainly the case that the us does have relatively low tariffs, but not by all that large a margin compared with other rich countries, canada included. in another tweet, trump
9:32 pm
claims the us has an 800bn dollar trade deficit, while other countries are making "massive trade surpluses", which is unfair on us farmers, workers and taxpayers. here‘s andrew again. $800 billion is about right for the figure for us trade in goods, that‘s to say the americans have a trade deficit in goods with the rest of the world, but i‘ve already made that point in relation to canada. there‘s also an awful lot going on by way of services trade, and in the case of the us that does reduce the deficit. it‘s still a pretty big deficit at 500 billion, but there‘s also, you know, the fact that most economists would tell you that what drives a trade deficit or surplus is not really whether countries are being fairorunfair
9:33 pm
in their trade policy, it‘s actually something that‘s the result of decisions taken by households and by businesses, on savings and investment. and you know, to put it briefly, if you don‘t save very much, that necessarily means that you do have a deficit in your trade with the rest of the world. then trump targeted nato countries, saying the us pays close to the entire cost of nato, which includes countries like germany, france and the uk, while the european union has a $151 billion surplus. here‘s andrew‘s view on that. it is certainly true the united states bears a disproportionate share of the cost of military activities in the nato alliance, nato has a guideline
9:34 pm
which the member countries have agreed they should spend each 2% of national income, gdp on defence and the united states is one of only six countries that actually meets that target and it meets the target, exceeds it in fact by a larger margin than any other. if you look at the total defence spending in the nato countries overall, you get a figure of more than two thirds of it comes from the united states, so there are a lot of real queries you could make about some of president trump‘s points about in those tweets about trade, but on defence spending, i‘d say he has a much more substantial point. and on both what‘s interesting is to lesser or greater degrees his numbers aren‘t a million miles off the mark, it‘s more about how he views those numbers, compared with what‘s become orthodox thinking in the west. it‘s partly that question of how he views those number, it‘s also partly a question of him
9:35 pm
choosing very specific numbers that illustrate a particular point, where you could choose other numbers that would suggest something rather different. stick bbc reality check—in to a search ingin and you will find your way to checks as we publish them. indian police have arrested 16 people after two men were killed by a mob in north east assam state. rumours of child kidnappers have been spreading throughout india on whatsapp. these two men had only stopped in a village to ask for directions — but were then beaten to death as residents thought they were kidnappers. incredibly, this isn‘t the first time this has happened. the deaths of seven other people have been linked to these rumours in just the last month. here‘s sangeetha rajan with more on what we know. well
9:36 pm
with more on what we know. in india and on whats been well in india and on whatsapp there been video that has been going viral showing a video of two men coming and kidnapping a small kid and driving away but that video was not filmed in india, it is a video from pakistan, it is the entire video shows it is a, to show that children can be kid mapped and you have to ta ke can be kid mapped and you have to take care of them only a portion has gone viral on whatsapp and when people share such messages and when it comes to the peer group think theyit it comes to the peer group think they it is true and there is some kind of child kidnapper on the loose, what happened in add sam is it seems the local villagers have received messages on whatsapp saying child abductors is in the area and one has long hair if you see the men, one of them was having a
9:37 pm
dreadlocks look, and the other person was travelling with him, so just because they were outsiders and they had got out of the car to ask for directions and the mob thought they are not from here, they could be child abductors, it must be true, we should attack them so itjust took place like that. i wasjust saying astonishingly that is not the only attack. no, because in southern india in the last month alone there we re india in the last month alone there were at least six attacks happened just because of whatsapp rumours, there was a man who had come to the city looking for a job, and he couldn‘t speak the language properly and he was apparently looking around things and walking up and down the street, maybe he looked suspicious to them and people attacked him, just for the look of it. so i guess the authorities have a challenge to try and communicate to people that this video is not what it seems. yes it is quite a challenge. authorities have taken initiatives like in some
9:38 pm
states the police are actually, they have come up with special social medias and they are going to the people, they are saying don‘t believe messages on child abductor, police are trying, but it is a hard task because it is not unlike facebook it is down privately and you don‘t know who is sending what. it takes a long time to catch the source, by the time they do that the story has moved on and police believe it when one of their friends sends it. there is no process of verification, there is no way of knowing if it is true. they are worried for the children or their neighbours and they get really angry and upset about it. stay with us on outside source — still to come. in vietnam, discontent over what‘s seen as chinese influence on the economy, erupts into angry protests in cities across the country. the discount retailer, poundworld, has become the latest name

on the high street to go into administration after talks with a potential buyer at the weekend failed to produce a deal. it means more than 5,000 jobs are at risk at the company‘s stores. danny savage reports from leeds. poundworld started life as a market stall here in wakefield. the market is now a smart shopping centre, but people here are still fans of the brand. a lot of people use it, especially people on lower incomes. there‘s always queues in it, and i do go in occasionally, i must admit, and i think a lot of people will miss it. this is just one of the 335 stores threatened with closure. these customers in leeds are concerned. they sell loads of quality stuff in there, you know. i've just got some stuff for my nan, because she needs bandages and stuff like that. if you go to boots or something, you pay almost double the price. quite sad, because it‘s quite good value for money, and they have such a wide range

of product as well. but retail experts are not surprised by today‘s announcement. one of the limitations of being a round—pound retailer is you can't sell things for £1.05 and £1.10, so what that means is that when inflation starts to bite, they have to suck up that price increase themselves, their margins become smaller, and these are businesses that run on very small margins anyway. also a fall in the value of the very denomination which defines this business has led to today‘s announcement — it cannot afford to buy as much as it used to with its own pounds. poundworld has been losing money for the past two years, a far cry from when founder chris edwards was at the helm. experts believe he might step in to take on some of the more profitable stores, so poundworld might not disappear from our high streets, but it is on the brink. danny savage, bbc news, leeds. this is outside source live from the bbc newsroom.

pictures from new york — of the moment, that a bin lorry lost control in brooklyn, causing havoc. it rammed cars and mounted the pavement, crushing the vehicles and a tree. in total, nine cars were hit by the rubbish truck. but incredibly no—one was injured. the driver of the truck was arrested at the scene. in vietnam, over 100 people have been detained after violent protests. these were the scenes in binh thuan province. molotov cocktails and rocks were thrown, vehicles were set on fire, and demonstrators briefly occupied the local government headquarters. the protests are nationwide — including in the capital hanoi — — as well as ho chi minh and other towns like nha trang. they‘re against proposed special economic zones that the protestors fear will be dominated by chinese investors. this sign was at a protest in ho chi minh: "no leasing land to china even forjust one day." the chinese embassy in hanoi has issued a security warning to its citizens. nga pham is a south east asia

analyst for the bbc — here she is explaining more about the zones. the government wants to create three economic zones where they will develop fast with foreign invest, the society then, the economic zones to make it like mini singapores, to make it develop areas and create a kind of, you know, motivation models for other provinces, in vietnam to follow. how ever, the public is unhappy, they think all the favourable conditions are going to be set up there, are going to benefit more to chinese investors than anyone else, and you know, that anti—china sentiments are very deep—rooted inside the vietnamese population. that is interesting, it
9:44 pm
is not that people think this might not have economic benefits, they are just worried that the economic benefits will come from the chinese. exactly benefits will come from the chinese. exa ctly a nd benefits will come from the chinese. exactly and there are huge concerns about chinese presence, the presence of the chinese workers, chinese experts, chinese people in general, in vietnam, especially in those three areas that are considered quite important for the development of the whole country. is the government paying attention to the protest? last week they announced they are going to ask the national assembly which is the parliament to postpone voting on these, and sure enough, today, the national assembly announced they would postpone it, but postponement is not cancellation, so we expect that it will be discussed further and maybe passed in the future. for those of us who don‘t follow protest in vietnam closely is it unusual to see them become violent? it is extreme
9:45 pm
he unusual for them to have this scale of violence, i have never seen it since 19, probably since 2014, when the vietnamese stormed chinese owned companies in southern vietnam, since then i have never seen anything like this, footage came on social media, just a few hours ago to show that the police were still have to chase the demonstrators away in central vietnam, using even live bullet, so it is tense and the situation remains volatile there. turkey‘s army has ramped up operations in northern iraq. specifically in the qandil mountains. the aim is to destroy bases belonging to the kurdistan workers party or the pkk as its known . turkey believes high—ranking pkk officials are there. here‘s turkey‘s president recep tayyip erdogan: ssource translation: our 20 aircraft hit 14

9:48 pm
just have fun, i believe many teams who will show great football in this tournament, but i think probably it is not a russian team. if we don‘t go out of the group i am personally no worries, bad for brazil to win the tournament. together with germany and with france and spain andi germany and with france and spain and i believe one of those four teams will win, i hope. this tournament is a big moment foeradimir putin — it‘s a chance to show off russia to the world. though the last time russia had a chance like that it was at the winter olympics in sochi in 2014 — but it decided to organise a major doping programme and was eventually found out — which rather took the shine off things. anyhow, second time lucky. here‘s lucy hockings in moscow. thousands of people work in the kremlin but one man holds all the power, hosting the world cup has long been an ambition of vladimir putin but it has been costly, some

estimates say between $30—50 billion have been spent so far, it is whether it is worth the power and influence one development i didn‘t see coming is that robbie williams will perform at the opening ceremony. bbc sport notes one song, he probably won‘t be singing is this one — it‘s called "party like a russian". #no # no disputing # contract dispute niesmt just one lyric that caused offense. that‘s all in the past — or at least all on youtube. he will perform in the minutes going up he will perform in the minutes going up to the beginning of the first game and if you can get full coverage of the world cup via the bbc sport an. in a few hours‘ time kimjong un and donald trump will meet in singapore.
9:50 pm
they will sit down with only two translators for company. there are other event involving bigger teams but for a while those four will be sitting down and trying to work out if the korean peninsula is going to be denuclearised. hello, monday was a beautiful aday across the uk, a couple of cheeky thunderstorms here and there but for the vast majority it was fine. tuesday, wednesday, thursday is going to be a shade cooler, we have a couple of cool fronts on the way and they will cool things off a bit over the coming days so we won‘t get the temperatures we have had in the
9:51 pm
mid 20s but there will be sunshine. this is what it looks like early on tuesday morning, cloudy conditions across eastern and central areas and it looks as though tuesday may end up it looks as though tuesday may end up cloudy for some. there could be areas of thick cloud floating around across the uk, during the course of tuesday, the midlands eangela, the south—east could be stuck under thick cloud through much of the afternoon but the best of the sunshine will be out west and once again on monday coasts of wales enjoying a beautiful day with clear blue sky, midweek it is all change, we have been forecasting an increasing jet stream, making a beeline for us, and that also means that weather fronts will be moving in our direction too. this area of low pressure with the weather front will swing into north—west parts of the uk later on wednesday and not only bring rain but also some very very blowy weather, so let us look at the forecast on wednesday, you can see a lot of fine weather round,
9:52 pm
at least early in day across the bulk of england and wales, here is the bad weather, it is coming in, the bad weather, it is coming in, the winds are freshening so the thinking is that later on wednesday, the rain and wind will really make its presence felt for example in glasgow, and it could be very blustery indeed. let‘s zoom in and explain what i‘m talking acts. gale force winds, look at the gusts of wind approaching 50mph, even the possibility of 60mph blasting through the central lowlands, now thatis through the central lowlands, now that is strong enough to bring some branches down, maybe even the odd tree. there could be some problems, and also very windy further south. very gusty conditions throughout the country but the worst of the winds going through northern ireland, through scotland as well, and with that there will be a spell of rain as well. but later on thursday, thursday evening, that nasty air of low pressure clears out into scandinavia. so on thursday, at this
9:53 pm
stage, gales are expected, not sure exactly how strong the winds will be, but the thinking is they will ease later on thursday, in the day, and then in the wake of the gale force winds we will see temperatures dropping away, so in glasgow only 15 degrees thursday and friday and in the southern parts of the uk the temperatures will dip down back in to the teen, then friday, and through the weekend, we are going to see further areas of low pressure, at least one moving through the country, not as bad, not as windy on this occasion, but it is still going to be on the fresh side, through the weekend, it is still going to be breezy, particularly round coasts and we are expecting sunshine and showers so potentially a mixed weekend on the way, some time next weekend on the way, some time next week we are anticipating that the jet stream will perhaps drift further towards the north, away from us, taking the low pressures with it and possibly this high is going to build back in, so at this stage, there are signs that at some point next week the weather will finally
