and the livelihood of our people as a key leader. in particular, we will permanently it's thought he's on the and completely dismantle afg han—pakistan border. all the nuclear material 0ur washington correspondnt production facilities, chris buckler has more including plutonium and uranium, on the intelligence effort to track in the presence of us experts, and by the joint work of technicians him down and challenge al qaeda. from both countries. they believe he could be in afghanistan, he could be in pakistan, they've but, for now, president trump's also talked about iran, desire to broker a denuclearisation agreement remains out of reach, but what is very clear from what they're saying and instead both leaders are heading is that they believe he is a threat home empty—handed, leading one news site to suggest that it was time and he is someone of concern to the united states. for the trump—kim and, certainly, since his father's buddie movie to end. death back in 2011, our correspondent when 0sama bin laden was killed robin brant is in seoul. in that operation in pakistan, he is someone who has made there must be a lot of threats against the us, disappointment at? yeah, there is, i both audio and video threats that have been posted on the internet, and there seems to be this concern for the al-qaeda group that's perhaps growing. mean, today is a big day in south korea, they are marking the 100th now, that might be as the is group anniversary of this country's is basically put down to the smaller independence movement and we just had a big speech from the president, and smaller strip of territory in syria that there is now a focus moonjae—in. he had a big speech from the president, moon jae—in. he hoped had a big speech from the president, moonjae—in. he hoped he would have on other groups as well. been making that speech in a far but they make the point that while al-qaeda has been quiet, more celebratory climate. that isn't it is what they regard
3:04 am
the case and i think there were as a strategic pause. they believe they are still dangerous and they believe that probably some hasty rewrite to his hamza bin laden is now emerging speech at last night because he was meant to present his broad ambitious as one of their key leaders. plan for economic collaboration and and, chris, i think some of this intelligence assessment is based integration for the south and the north today. he is pushing ahead chris buckler there for us. with that plan but it remains at this momentjust a plan, because it stay with us on bbc news, is contingent on some kind of peace still to come: it's set to sell agreement, the lifting of sanctions for more than $100 million. but is it for real? the auction that's against the north and split the art world. denuclearisation as well, none of which we now know is going to happen any time soon. what was interesting in terms of the speech i think was first, the plates slid gently off the restaurant tables. that moonjae—in who has staked a then suddenly, the tables, the chairs and people crashed lot on president trump's diplomatic sideways and downwards, and it was just a matter of seconds style a nd lot on president trump's diplomatic as the ferry lurched onto her side. style and has encouraged president trump to deal face—to—face with kim the hydrogen bomb. jong—un, he believes seoul's role in on a remote pacific atoll, any kind of negotiations going the americans had successfully forward now becomes more important. tested a weapon whose explosive those were the words that he used. i force dwarfed that of the bomb dropped on hiroshima. think there is no doubt that the ohus think there is no doubt that the onus will now kind of fall back to more regional level talks between seoul and pyongyang. 0wning kim i had heard the news earlier,
3:05 am
jong—un was supposed to come in the and so my heart went bang and bang. spring. ——i jong—un was supposed to come in the spring. —— i mean. will the leaders of north and south meet for a fourth the constitutional rights of these marchers are their rights time? wejust as citizens of the united states, of north and south meet for a fourth time? we just don't know. and they should be protected even of north and south meet for a fourth time? wejust don't know. moon jae—in, it has taken the wind out of in the right to test them out, his sails, if and not his so that they don't get their heads credibility as i said, he staked so broken and are sent to hospital. much on president trump's diplomacy this religious controversy, and also domestically and is planned i know you don't want to say too to try to help boost the economy much about it, but does it worry here, try to link road and rail of you it's going to boil up when you get to the states? north and south, an iconic plan at well, it worries me, yeah. the moment that remains just a plan. i hope everything will be all right at the end of the day. it can't progress because they can get that agreement yesterday in hanol get that agreement yesterday in hanoi. i wanted to hear more about what's going on today of course, but the south korean leader was widely credited with saving the first summit at the last minute, wasn't he? gas, and, you know, moon jae-in welcome back. this is bbc news, one main headline: has a huge amount invested —— yeah. in the diplomatic process and of the white house says further meetings could be held course trying to get the goal of a between the us and north korea, peace agreement between north korea despite the failed and south korea and the united summit in vietnam. pyongyang insists their states. he encouraged donald trump, believing that kim jong—un had taken
3:06 am
a strategic decision to give up position won't change. nuclear weapons. so he was encouraging donald trump to push ahead with these face—to—face talks. and he has a lot invested in it as pakistan's prime minister has well. i mean, he has had to endure offered to return an indian pilot, as a gesture of peace after days being called an appeaser by of rising tensions involving kashmir, which both nations president trump. nonetheless there claim as their own. pakistan shot down the airforce jet is huge disappointment in what happened yesterday. there were some on wednesday, after a series of indian airstrikes against a militant training reports that senior diplomatic figures around the president were camp in pakistan. 0ur correspondents yogita limaye perplexed by the lack of any kind of and secunder kermani sent these agreement, the fact that it had gone reports from both sides of the line of control in kashmir. so agreement, the fact that it had gone so farand agreement, the fact that it had gone a mortar shell has hit so far and yet nothing came of it. this mountaintop, india what we have now for south korea's and pakistan exchanging fire. in the fields and the forest, leadership is a period of trying to the bombs land thick and fast. work out what to do next. as i said, people watch anxiously. this is one of the last will kim jong—un come villages on the indian side. here, they are used to hearing these work out what to do next. as i said, will kimjong—un come here? will there be another round of explosions, but the past few days face—to—face talks? what can they do have been scary. to try to maintain the momentum on these lower—level but nonetheless important moves to try to build trust between north and south and try and increase or at least certainly forward the plans for cooperation and collaboration it is too risky to go any further from here. particularly on the economic front. we've been hearing the sounds thank you so much for that. continuously now for
3:07 am
the past one hour. you can't see any military installations there, this just looks like any on his way back from hanoi, other regular village. president trump stopped in alaska but those sounds tell to visit american troops. you that you are very close he thanked them for their service to the border with pakistan. and claimed that us—backed forces this village in had now retaken100% pakistani—administered kashmir was hit by indian shells on tuesday. of the territory, the so—called caliphate, once held by the militant group that calls itself islamic state. you can see the absolute devastation that's been done to the house, and look — here is part of the mortar that struck it. whenever tensions rise we just took over, you know, between the two countries, you kept hearing it was 90%, it is people living in places like this that 92%, the caliphate in syria. are the first to suffer. now it's100%. we just took over 100% caliphate. this is not the first time mr trump has made such claims. in december he tweeted that is had been defeated, and used that as a justification to propose pulling american troops out of syria. hospitals in pakistani—administered kurdish forces, backed kashmir have been placed on emergency alert. by the us, are saying tensions might now be easing, they have surrounded the remaining but it is of little use is fighters in a tiny patch of territory at baghuz to this seven—year—old. he and his two brothers in south—east syria. they say they are a week away are recovering after their home from claiming victory. close to the border was struck earlier this week. this from our middle east another brother and sister were killed, as was their mother, correspondent quentin sommerville. but none of them know that yet. out of the darkness dozens of families here and into the light. have left their homes. the islamic state group makes a slow some may feel confident and miserable surrender, enough to return for now, carrying everything they own. but this border is likely to remain these are the last a source of conflict. of the true believers.
3:08 am

3:09 am
and the sexual abuse included fondling, touching my entire body and my penis. hello, wade. today's your birthday, so congratulations. i love you, goodbye. wade originally testified that michaeljackson never harmed him. the idea of being pulled away from michael now, this man, this otherworldly figure, this god to me, who had now become my best friend — no way was i ever going to do anything that would pull me away from him. mrjackson? james safechuck was in a commercial with jackson. he says he was abused from the age of ten. he grooms the children, and he grooms the parents as well. so it's a meticulous sort of build—up for him to be able to do that, and it takes him a while to build the trust. michael groomed the world as well.
3:10 am
michaeljackson‘s music is still loved, and generates millions of pounds every year. he himself always maintained that he'd never hurt any child, and some of his family members have continued to defend his reputation. why do you think they're coming forward now? money. you think it's all about money? it's all about money. it's always been about money. i hate to say it — when it's my uncle, it's almost like they see a blank cheque. this documentary is not telling the truth. there has not been, not one piece of evidence that corroborates their story. almost a decade after his death, michaeljackson‘s character remains under the spotlight. his true legacy is still being questioned. danjohnson, bbc news, los angeles. let's get some of

3:16 am
authenticity, given that a disciple of caravaggio was known to make very credible copies. eric turquin is an expert in the masters and is confident that it is authentic. what we see proves that this picture is in the process of creation, with changes, variations, that is the proof that is an original. the painting will be on display in london for eight days and is due to be auctioned off in france later this year. we will in no just before we go, white house officials are insisting they could be another meeting between kim jong—un president trump, despite the failed summit in hanoi. the summit collapsed over a disagreement about lifting nuclear
3:17 am
sanctions. north korea's foreign minister has said their position will not change, even if the us does seek more talks. it looks likely the south korean leadership will try to intervene to help again. and you can get in touch with me and most of the team on twitter. i'm @bbcmikeembley. thank you for watching. well, we're just into march and the weather has turned a little bit colder, after that very warm spell in february. now, the atlantic is looking very turbulent at the moment, look at those clouds swirling around. these are low pressures, weather systems, and here are weather fronts, one here — in fact, there's multiple weather fronts around.
3:18 am
there's another one coming in from the south as well. all of that is heading in our direction and as promised, the coming days will be very changeable. some days will be wetter than others, but we'll all experience that changeable weather. so first thing in the morning, pretty mild, nine degrees in london first thing on friday. around five degrees expected in aberdeen and in edinburgh, a really murky, misty sort of start to the day, with a bit of drizzle, but it's not all bad because some of us on friday will actually get at least little bit of sunshine, particularly across these western areas, so cardiff, birmingham, the north—west of england, for example, around liverpool, could get some sunshine. the further east you are, the cloudier it'll be. now, a weather front is approaching, you saw the satellite image there. here's the first one, it moves into northern ireland friday night, also the south—west of england and eventually wales, and other parts of the country will get that rain through the early hours of saturday. so early on saturday, again, a lot of mild weather, when we get cloud and weather systems coming off the atlantic, it does tend to be quite mild. so the weekend is looking very blustery across many parts of the uk. we will see a low pressure moving off the atlantic. here it is, friday night into saturday, as it moves in, a lot of isobars there,
3:19 am
those white lines, these pressure lines, that basically means very strong winds. so the low pressure comes in, moves across ireland, the rain reaches belfast eventually. ahead of it for a time in the morning, it could actually be quite bright. and one place where we could keep the dry weather for most of the day and it may actually be really decent, that's london and norwich, temperatures here up to around 1a or 15 degrees. however, the weather will turn in the south because once this area of low pressure moves away, another one further south swings into southern areas of the country, so here we are expecting some pretty wet weather for cornwall, devon, parts of wales, the midlands, southern counties, east anglia and the south—east, so many of us in southern parts of the uk will need our brollies on sunday. it's likely to be quite windy too. but northern areas, aberdeen there, enjoying some sunshine on sunday, with temperatures of around about 10 celsius. so it is all change, that warm weather we had in february will soon be a distant memory as this much cooler,
3:20 am
showery weather continues into next week and it may last for quite some time. that's the latest. this is bbc news. the headlines: the white house says further meetings could be held between the us and north korea following the failed summit in vienam. a disagreement about lifting economic sanctions dashed hopes for progress on denuclearising the korean peninsula. despite washington's optimism, pyongyang insists its position won't change. on his way home from vietnam,
