chesney‘s family who received the the club that i do, but i am worst news. this afternoon the family of the teenager murdered here would have got the call that he had conscious of the fact that it is not become the latest victim of knife something that can be in isolation. crime. it was the killing ofjodie i need to make sure that i am looking around and trying to help chesney in romford last weekend and where i can. but homelessness isn't that of yousef makki in cheshire that of yousef makki in cheshire the only social issue kompany has that led to a refrain of something views on after the death of a must be done. since then we have teenager at the weekend, having been stabbed in an area of manchester seen meetings involving the home close to where the footballer lives. secretary and police chiefs, calls for more resources for the police i have lost friends to knife crime. it is an issue that is not going to and calls for greater cooperation across government departments in go away because of repression and focusing on this issue. but any new because a police action. of course, measures that are brought in will ta ke we need to support the forces. but measures that are brought in will take time to work through. in the here and now, police say they can't in reality, the whole aspect, even arrest their way out of this, so the homelessness, is linked to prevention and prevention often comes to education. it shocks me, challenge for anyone with any influence is, how do you stop a but it doesn't surprise me. city are young person from picking up a knife aiming foran but it doesn't surprise me. city are when they leave the house in the aiming for an unprecedented quadruple but this evening, uefa same way they pick up a mobile phone, and how do you convince that announced it was investigating them young person that their life and future would be better without a for potential breaches of financial fair play rules. in a statement, the
knife. clu b fair play rules. in a statement, the club said the accusation was entirely false. do you worry detract british officials and representatives from from what you guys have achieved in the european union are preparing the last few years? to work through the weekend to try to break the deadlock over brexit. the eu has given theresa may i don't think it's an issue for us until tomorrow, to come up to deal with as players, with fresh proposals we have enough on our plate. on the controversial i think in the end, football always prevails, northern ireland backstop — and that's the key thing. the mechanism designed to prevent i think by the time that the weekend a hard border on the island of ireland. comes, our fans will want us to win ministers are pressing for concessions from the european union, the game and play the football before a crucial vote that we play. on the prime minister's brexit and that's the best way to contribute to the game, deal next tuesday. here's our political is to play the beautiful football that we always play. editor laura kuenssberg. asa as a footballer, kompany has little left to prove, but in this, his the bells will ring. testimonial year, he is intent on leaving a legacy beyond the game. mps will be called to vote on tuesday. walking through this lobby to back the prime minister, or the other, newsnight with mark urban to reject her brexit deal again. is starting on bbc two in a few minutes, asking if the big brexit vote will fare any better than the last one. and how many go each way now on bbc one, time for the news where you are. depends on what he says. have a very good night. we have been engaging, mr speaker, in focused, detailed and careful discussions with the union. the attorney general, geoffrey cox,
is pushing for extra legal promises from the eu on the most controversial part of the deal. we continue to seek legally binding changes to the backstop, which ensure that it cannot be indefinite. and it's not a laughing matter. it's come to be called "cox's codpiece". what i am concerned to ensure is that what's inside the codpiece is in full working order! you've had the people's vote! the argument‘s intense. but between the uk and the eu over — you guessed it — the backstop, the guarantee against a hard border in ireland, whatever happens. westminster wants a time limit, or a way out. not much sign of that. this issue has been discussed for months between the european union and the united kingdom. now it cannot be reopened. if the idea is to weaken the backstop, at a point to which it is not a backstop, it is not a last—resort solution, we cannot say yes.
without any change to the backstop, don't expect much change to the numbers in here. remember, in january, the prime minister's brexit compromise was thumpingly rejected by mps. but there are likely to be some tweaks which will make some difference, but ministers can't be sure of how much. but whether in brussels or westminster, several cabinet members have admitted privately the vote's likely to be lost. this minister says wait and see. are you going to lose the brexit vote next week? we are in negotiations, so we'll see how it goes. and how are they going? tough going? lovely to meet you. we'll see how it goes, thank you. and as the day we're meant to leave gets closer, with no deal in place, so calls for delay grow louder. parliament has proved itself incapable of resolving this problem. the country is totally divided, as a result of nobody being able to support any of the options, and i'm joining a group of people who, in the next few days, will be calling for an extension of the negotiating period.
if the prime minister's deal is booted out again next week, it's likely mps will vote to make that delay come true. but with divisions and dilemmas all around, time alone might not be the answer. laura kuenssberg, bbc news, westminster. the secretary of state for northern ireland, karen bradley, has apologised for saying yesterday that deaths caused by the security services during the troubles were "not crimes". she says she's "profoundly sorry" for any hurt caused. it comes a week ahead of an announcement on whether british army veterans are to be prosecuted, for their role in the bloody sunday shootings, when 14 civilians were killed. here's our ireland correspondent, emma va rdy. more than 3,000 people lost their lives during northern ireland's 30—year conflict, many at the hands of republican and loyalist pa ramilitaries.
but around 350 killings, some of unarmed civilians, were attributed to police or the british army. their deaths are still being investigated today. a commons question about killings during the troubles prompted this answer. the fewer than 10% that were at the hands of the military and the police were not crimes. they were people acting under orders and under instruction, and fulfilling their duties in a dignified and appropriate way. she later clarified her comments, but faced a barrage of criticism. you've got to be very careful when you're making statements on such a sensitive series of subjects as the killings during the troubles. you've got to get it right, and she didn't get it right. after calls for her to resign, today, karen bradley said sorry. i did not mean to say it in that way. or at all. i did not mean to say... it's not what i think, it's not what i mean. so i said something wrong and i apologised.
her comments could hardly have come at a more delicate time. next week, british army veterans will be told whether they will face prosecution for the deaths of 13 civilians on bloody sunday. for families of victims and some politicians in northern ireland, her apology is not enough. she says that the man who shot my daddy 14 times done that in a dignified and appropriate way. and for somebody to say that, she needs to resign. she needs to resign. this is not the first time karen bradley has slipped up over the complexities of northern ireland. she still has the backing of theresa may, but gaining the confidence of people here — a place still healing its own divisions — will be a much harder task. emma vardy, bbc news, belfast. meanwhile, the work and pensions secretary, amber rudd, has also had to apologise,
after referring to labour's diane abbott as "coloured," in a bbc radio 2 phone—in. 0ur political correspondent, ben wright, is at westminster. a p pa re ntly apparently amber rudd was attempting to highlight abuse directed towards diane abbott but ended up causing offence herself. that's right. amber rudd said the online abuse faced by black and minority ethnic women was particularly nasty and had to stop. she was sticking up for diane abbott and being supportive but at one point in the interview she described the labour mp is a coloured woman. it definitely is worse if you're a woman, and it's worst of all if you're a coloured woman. i know that diane abbott gets a huge amount of abuse, and i think that's something we need to continue to call out. that prompted a furious response from diane abbott on twitter who said, it was a revealing choice of words that was outdated and offensive. and it is pretty extraordinary that amber rudd chose
to use such an old—fashioned racial term that really jars to use such an old—fashioned racial term that reallyjars today. amber rudd apologised inevitably very quickly saying that she was mortified by her clumsy language and she said sorry to diane abbott. amber rudd has only been back in the cabinet since november and would not have wa nted cabinet since november and would not have wanted to stumble into this dispute around race and language. ben wright at westminster, thank you. the fashion retailer lk bennett has gone into administration, putting 500 jobs at risk. the high—end brand — worn by celebrities including the duchess of cambridge — has 39 stores, five of which will close immediately. administrators say they're continuing to look for a buyer. the former foster carers of an iraqi teenager who left a bomb on a tube train in 2017, injuring more than 50 people, are suing surrey county council. they say officials were negligent in failing to tell them that ahmed hassan had been trained to kill by the islamic state group. he'd built the bomb in secret,
while in the care of ron and pennyjones, who've been speaking to our legal correspondent, clive coleman. horror on the tube. a partially detonated bomb sends a fireball down the carriage, burning morning commuters, who stampede to escape. the bomber is ahmed hassan, an iraqi asylum seeker who, unbeknown to his foster parents, ron and pennyjones, had confessed to immigration officials he'd been trained to kill by the islamic state group. 18 months later, the couple finally feel able to come to parsons green, where the attack took place. ijust keep thinking about the ladies that were burnt and the men that were burnt, and the people that got the crush injuries. i mean, 51 people, 51 counts of attempted murder. "to penny, from ahmed, happy birthday to a wonderful person." surrey county council, who placed hassan with thejoneses, didn't tell them he'd confessed to being trained to kill.
the couple only found out via the judge at hassan's trial. surrey has stopped them fostering, and now they're taking unprecedented legal action, suing the council for negligence. they didn't tell us the truth. they should have been honest with us, to start with. and the fact that we've lost our income, we've lost everything, we've lost our will to get up, basically, in the morning, because our life has revolved around children for over a0 years and there is... our life is empty. surrey county council, shame on you! a group of foster carers and supporters have gathered here, outside surrey county council, to demonstrate with penny and ron, and to ask the local authority why a couple who gave a stable home to nearly 270 children have had their foster caring career ended because they were asked to take in a young man who they weren't told was a trained killer. what do we want? justice! the demonstrators believe this case
makes a broader point about the way foster carers are treated. something they wanted to communicate directly to the council. penny, what just happened? he just told me to get out. itjust shows that i am definitely on the scrapheap. in a statement, the council said... hassan was convicted and sentenced to life, thejudge branding him "devious". but penny and ron — an ordinary couple — continue to try to come to terms with extraordinary events. do you think you'll ever get over this? no, no. well, i think it'll keep coming back. i think we'll think we've got past it and then, all of a sudden, something will come back to remind us. clive coleman, bbc news. the war in syria, which has so far claimed an astonishing half a million lives, is eight years old this month. president bashar al—assad has
presided over the conflict, which has displaced more people than any other crisis in modern times — more than 11 million people. among the victims are the innocent children who've grown up knowing only war, and we ve been following two of them, who are now as old as the conflict itself. caroline hawley has been back to meet them. my name is mustafa. the eight—year—old and his little sister, duaa, survived a barrel bomb. it destroyed their family home near aleppo, leaving only their grandmother to look after them. safe in the cupboard is mustafa's most precious possession. it's all he has left of his father, ibrahim, who died saving him. his mother was also killed, but he doesn't even have a photo to remember her. mustafa was so badly injured, he spent a whole year in hospital. twice a week, he still comes for physiotherapy. he is a strong boy.
he is very strong. his left hand doesn't move properly because of a piece of shrapnel in his brain. his hips were badly broken and one leg is now longer than the other. mustafa needs help to dress and wash. the challenges mustafa faces are no less daunting than when we first met him, when he was five, but he's no less determined. the syrian war has created many mustafas, children whose injuries and loss will stay with them
